What if this was about the liver?
At the moment it is very trendy to see leaky gut as the cause of all evils. Don’t get me wrong the gut is extremely important, and gut dysbiosis is a significant source of histamines, but histamine intolerance is a symptom with many causes.
Personally, supporting the gut only got me so far. Supporting the liver has got me close to the end-game.
I have dramatically improved my histamine tolerance, and put my mast-cell activation type symptoms into remission, and dropped by 2/3rds my inflammation markers, by supporting my liver.
This little breakfast dish is so brimming with glutathione rich nutrition.
Asparagus, watercress, capers, and duck eggs, have two things in common. They are each individually extremely high in glutathione and they are a marriage made in heaven.
Eggs (and particularly egg whites) are often problematic, on a low histamine diet. I do tolerate duck eggs so I eat them.
The role of histamine in the nervous system is largely overlooked, despite the nervous system being an important source of histamine, which accounts for a wide ranging symptoms.
There is a large raw food movement here in Byron Bay. I don’t do well on a 100% raw food diet although many people do. Each to their own I say.
One of the gifts of the raw food movement to culinary creation is the Zucchini noodle. It really tastes just like pasta on the palette.
I like to use yellow zucchinis (rather than green) as they give the same colour as well. The trick to spiralising them is to choose a zucchini that is straight and of a medium size. Too large and it will be full of seeds, and too small or crooked and it will be difficult to operate the spiralizer.
