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
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".
And foods like . . . Himalayan salt, garlic and sweet potatoes . . . are not only "low" in "histamine" . . . they're also an "ANTIHISTAMINE" . . .
So let's take this week and its wealth of information and run with it.
Could the answer to some of our health issue be a "deficiency" in DAO and therefore . . . a "histamine intolerance"???
I know in my case . . . absolutely . . . because I have lived this journey personally.
So I'll leave you today with the "SYMPTOMS" of "HISTAMINE INTOLERANCE" . . .
Feeling of fulness
High blood pressure
Hormone imbalance like -
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Muscle and joint pain
Shortness of breath
Weak muscle tone
And the question . . . "IS THIS YOU"???
So please, consult your own healthcare provider before using any new regiment or supplement.
Have a great weekend . . . stay safe . . . and be "mindful".
