I recently was interviewed by Stephen Anderson for the Holistic Practitioner Podcast on histamine intolerance.
In this episode, we talk about my long struggle with histamine intolerance and how healing myself lead me into the work of helping others suffering from similar issues.
It has been a little quiet on this blog of late as two years ago I was diagnosed with CIRS.
Fortunately, I am now much better, and so I wanted to share with you what I have learned about this syndrome.
Not only does this syndrome affect up to 25% of the population but many of my clients are discovering they have CIRS.
Here is my story. See if any of it sounds familiar.
A new study shows a link between histamine intolerance, GMO foods, and Roundup® sprayed foods.
The study looked at non-genetically modified (GMO) maize, GMO maize not sprayed with any herbicide, and GMO maize sprayed with Roundup®.
Roundup® was applied only once, before the development of the maize cobs, so the study looked at the effects, even in the absence of herbicide residues.
The findings have significant implications for anyone suffering from histamine intolerance.
One of the most overlooked ways in which histamine tolerance can be improved is through the stabilisation of blood sugar levels.
In the scientific literature, it is a well established that there is a bi-directional relationship between blood sugar control and histamine levels.
This means that unstable blood sugar can increase histamine levels, and histamine levels can progress the development of diabetes or insulin resistance.
