Okay . . . so today . . . let's figure out how to get some "relief" from our "menopause".
Now . . . remember what we spoke about the other day . . . "histamine intolerance" can cause "menopausal symptom" discomfort and even a "menopause from HELL" . . . so changing what we eat can help those that are getting ready for the "future", just "starting", in "true-menopause" and even those in "post-menopause".
Okay . . . so there are 3 elements we must "adhere" to . . . to control the amount of "histamine" in the body . . . therefore . . . helping to "control" our "menopausal symptoms".
First . . . making sure that we consume enough of the "histamine controlling enzyme called diamine oxidase (DAO)" with things like . . .
Olive oil . . . you see . . . "olive oil" is an "Omega 3" and is high in "oleic acid" . . . which can "increase" the amount of DAO released into our blood to "metabolize". . . HISTAMINE!
So adding "olive oil" to our cooking and/or salads . . . is a MUST for controlling "histamine".
Second . . . would be to ELIMINATE "histamine TRIGGERING" foods like . . .
Fermented food and beverages
Food dyes, preservatives and additives
Nuts - some like peanuts and cashews
Tomatoes . . . just to mention a few
And finally . . . we need to "ADD" into the diet "low-histamine" foods like . . .
Cabbage - green and/or red
Cucumber . . . peel and deseed
Eggs . . . just be cage-free, organic and the whites are "FULLY" cooked
Fresh herbs like . . . basil, cilantro, rosemary, parsley ginger and oregano
Green leafy vegetables
Herbal teas like . . . peppermint, lavender and ginger
Napa cabbage/Chinese cabbage
Romaine lettuce . . . with red and green leaf lettuce
Scallions - especially the green parts
Wild game . . . venison, elk, boar, etc
And one of the "biggest" ways to control "histamine" and therefore our "menopausal symptoms" is my favorite . . . "GINGER"!
Why you ask???
Well . . . "ginger" is one of the "STONGEST" known natural "ANTIHISTAMINES"
So in closing today . . . making sure we have enough of the enzyme called DAO to help regulate "histamine" release, complying with the food lists above . . . and using a natural "antihistamine" like "GINGER" . . . will make our world called "menopause" a little easier.
But . . . as always, please check with your own healthcare provider before starting any new regiment or supplement.
So have a great weekend and holiday season . . . I'll be taking off some time to be with family and friend.
But I'll be back posting January 9th . . . and if there's a "topic" you'd like to discuss . . . just drop me a message and I'll get right on it.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
