So the question for today is this . . . how is "vertigo" and "histamine intolerance" connected???
Well . . . as we have now discovered from last week's posts . . . "histamine intolerance" is the "ROOT" cause of many symptoms we "write off" as environmental allergies such as migraines, hives, face flushing, congestion or runny nose, low blood pressure, dizziness or lightheadedness, eczema, anxiety, menstrual irregularity, diarrhea . . . and yes . . . even "VERTIGO".
You see . . . the proper amount of "histamine" release in the body can actually "regulate " vestibular function and cerebral circulation.
But . . . when there's "too much" histamine in the body . . . we're in trouble.
And this release of "too much" histamine can cause "inflammation" of the mucus membrane lining of the "nasal cavities" and "EARS". This "inflammation" can result in a "blockage" in the ears that prevents fluid or mucus from draining away.
And with this . . . our "crystals" can become "dislodged".
Now . . . conventional medicine has been known to use "antihistamines" to "relieve" less severe nausea, vomiting and "vertigo" symptoms . . . and this is due to the antihistamines "blocking" the effects of an overproduction of "histamine".
But . . . they are by no means . . . a cure!
So why do we "keep" getting "vertigo"???
Well . . . peripheral vertigo may be caused by "benign positional vertigo" . . . and certain medicines such as aminoglycoside antibiotics, cisplatin, diuretics or salicylates . . . which are all "toxic" to the inner ear structure . . . can cause the reoccurrence of "vertigo".
Now . . . the National Library of Medicine, National Center for Biotechnology Information says . . .
In all their studies . . . the digestive enzyme called "diamine oxidase" (DAO) . . . remember, we spoke of this last week . . . and this enzyme "controls histamine" . . . can "significantly" IMPROVE "histamine intolerance" levels in the body.
Therefore . . . controlling "vertigo"
Now . . . for years, I've told my clients when they have an attack . . . to take a small amount of ground "ginger" when experiencing "vertigo" . . . or to drink some "ginger tea"
And this is due to "ginger" interrupting the feedback between the stomach and the nausea center of the brain . . . and this . . . relieving "vertigo symptoms".
But . . . the best part of "ginger" for "vertigo" is this . . .
"Ginger" is one of the "strongest" known "antihistamine" foods you can find . . . and this is why it works so well "relieving" vertigo.
Okay . . . so tomorrow let's continue to talk about DAO enzymes and then I'll give you some recipes for "antihistamine smoothies".
