We all know fruit and vegetables are healthy and should be eaten daily. Many of us pride ourselves on eating well and lead a healthy life.
BUT, what if those healthy foods you have been eating are actually bad for YOU, and are causing you health problems, or exacerbating symptoms!
Histamine Intolerance occurs when the body can no longer break down and remove histamine from the body efficiently causing it to build up in the bloodstream.
Histamine is best known for its effect during spring. When people are sneezing and having runny noses due to the pollens in the air. When the immune system is triggered by these pollens, histamine is released. This is a good thing, right?
Unfortunately, some people cannot expel these naturally occurring chemicals sufficiently and end up having reactions.
Common symptoms that could be linked to Histamine Intolerance include:
Headaches or Migraines
Anxiety and Mood Changes
Reflux, Bloating, Constipation, Nausea
Hot Flushes and Night Sweats
Histamine Intolerance is not an intolerance to histamine foods, it's an indication of overload!
Foods can sometimes be the culprit that 'tip you over the edge', causing a build up.
Foods that contain histamine or produce histamine in the body once eaten include:
Strawberries and Kiwi Fruit
and, dear I say it, even WINE! Nooooooooo!!!!!
Why does it have to be the good foods! :)
If you already have a high histamine load, eating these foods could be a trigger for your symptoms.
It is important to find out the cause of your histamine intolerance, not just remove or reduce these often healthy foods from the diet. Stress, gut issues and high oestrogen are some of the underlying causes of histamine Intolerance.
