If you have a histamine intolerance, a low-histamine diet can help. But first things first: What exactly is a histamine intolerance, and how would you know you have one? Good questions! Because...it’s not so simple. Histamine is the chemical that triggers an inflammatory response when your immune system is under attack. Usually, an enzyme in the body called diamine oxidase (DAO) will break down histamine, but if that reaction doesn’t happen as it should, histamine can build up, triggering symptoms, and you can develop—yep—a histamine intolerance. You can also be sensitive to histamine if you have mast cell activation syndrome. Here’s the problem with histamine: It travels through your bloodstream and can cause headaches, high blood pressure, hives, anxiety, stomach cramps, and flushing, to name just a few reactions. If these symptoms plague you, this diet might provide some relief. The reason: If you have a histamine intolerance, what you eat can add to the problem because there are foods that naturally contain histamine, others that cause the release of histamine, and still others that block DAO from doing its histamine-breakdown job in your digestive tract. Finally, you can also be deficient in DAO. See…definitely not a simple problem! But fortunately, diet can be part of the solution, as it aims to reduce high histamine foods to reduce circulating histamines.

The Beginner's Guide to Histamine Intolerance (The Beginner's Guides Book 1)
If you’re struggling with your health, but the doctor can’t find anything actually wrong with you, then perhaps you have Histamine Intolerance. It’s a condition with a range of unpleasant symptoms, which can include headaches, flushing, itching, hives, swollen facial tissues, racing heart, digestive problems, irritability and more. Many doctors don’t know much about Histamine Intolerance, although it’s estimated that 1% of the world’s population suffers from it. If you’re one of them, you’ll know first-hand how distressing and frustrating the disorder can be. Dr Janice Vickerstaff Joneja saw the misery that this condition caused sufferers, and made it the focus of her research work; she’s been studying the condition and helping patients since the 1990s. She’s now created this easy-to-read guide—which will help you understand if you have Histamine Intolerance, and what you can do about it—with clear advice and explanations, lots of interesting real-life cases, plus diet and treatment recommendations. If you wonder if your symptoms could be caused by Histamine Intolerance—or if you believe they are and want to know what to do about it—this book is for you.
