What is Histamine Intolerance?
For the past couple years I have been diving deep into a particular health concern that seems to be plaguing more and more people with a range of confusing and difficult to pinpoint symptoms.
What is this health concern?
If you haven't heard of it, I'm not surprised! It's not very well known about, but in my estimation, and that of many of my colleagues, it is rapidly becoming something that deserves more attention.
Histamine intolerance is not a food allergy. It's simply the inability to break down histamine in the gut. Because it's not a food allergy, oftentimes testing for food allergies will not provide any helpful information, even though one is reacting to foods...just not the ones on the food allergy tests and not in a way that can be picked up by food allergy testing!
My own personal journey with healing histamine intolerance has taught me a lot and inspired me to share what I have learned with others who may be suffering from this condition.
According to Dr Jockers, Common Symptoms of Histamine Intolerance include:
- Difficulty falling asleep, easily arousal
- Vertigo or Dizziness
- Arrhythmia, or accelerated heart rate
- Difficulty regulating body temperature
- Nausea, Vomiting
- Abdominal cramps
- Nasal Congestion, Sneezing, Difficulty Breathing
- Abnormal Menstrual Cycle
- Tissue swelling

While I am not here to diagnose histamine intolerance, as that is something that you would need to confer with your doctor about, I can share with you which foods to eat and which foods to avoid, so that you can do a self-assessment to see if histamine intolerance may be playing a role in any chronic or unresolved health concerns you have.
If you would like to do a private consultation, I will share with you in a step-by-step fashion how I healed my histamine intolerance with food, lifestyle changes and other therapeutic interventions.
The therapeutic intervention that has been most helpful to me in living my life free from Histamine Intolerance was working with a form of light therapy, and is something I discuss in the video below:
(Please note that the free classes referenced in this video are available to watch on replay, so simply be in touch after you watch this video if you're interested in watching those)
Please contact me to schedule an introductory private session.
Not sure if this is something you may have or may be of interest to explore? Please read more about Histamine Intolerance, what it is, and get a general idea of what foods you will be avoiding, at Dr. Jocker's website HERE
As part of your education either privately or as part of a group Cleanse, I will provide access to low histamine recipes, food lists of what to avoid and what to eat, and other education about how to assess root causes and begin to heal.
p.s. I also used to suffer from Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), and am living symptom-free from this condition now as well due to my use of a variety of holistic therapeutic interventions.
