How can we help to "CONTROL" "histamine intolerance"?

So today . . . let's talk about how we can help "CONTROL" too much "histamine" in the body.

And that would be with . . . "PROBIOTICS"

But listen up . . . because NOT all "probiotics" are created equal and can "HELP" with "histamine intolerance".

In fact . . . there are "probiotics" like Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus reuteri and Lactobacillus bulgaricus . . . that can actually "INCREASE" our "histamine" levels.

And these "probiotics" are in "YOGURT" and "FERMENTED FOODS"

So this is definitely a case of buyer beware . . .

Now, the key to making this all work, is this . . . choosing a "probiotic" that's . . . "SPORE FORMING" . . . I've spoken about them many, many times before.

And this is no different . . .

Not only are "spore forming" probiotics excellent for recolonizing our large intestine with "good" bacteria . . . to help fight our "bad" bacteria . . . they're also very LOW in "histamine" . . . meaning they "DON'T" produce it.

Okay . . . so how else can we help to "flush" out the body of too much "histamine"???

Well . . . vitamin C is a natural "antihistamine" . . . increasing the enzymes "DAO" that we just spoke of . . . taking a "spore forming probiotic" . . . and eating and drinking substances that contain "low" amounts of "histamine" like . . .

Lamb, bison, beef, turkey, chicken

Wild caught fish - salmon, cod, trout

Egg yolks

Arugula, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, garlic, kale, leafy greens, lettuce, onions, radishes, sweet potatoes, zucchini

Apples, blueberries, blackberries, coconut

Macadamias, pistachios, hemp seeds

Almond butter, Himalayan salt, olive oil, coconut oil

Unsweetened coconut milk, chicory herbal coffee, yacon syrup

And rice, quinoa and gluten-free grains

These are just some of the foods and drinks that are "low" in "histamine".
