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.
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.
One of my promises to myself is to raise awareness of drug tolerance testing.
I have freely shared my story on national television, which was that I developed mast-cell activation, in response to an adverse drug reaction to prescription medication. A simple $149 drug tolerance test called DNA Dose correctly diagnosed me.
That is why I am passionate about drug tolerance testing. But this is why it may be important for you.
