This paleo low histamine porridge is delicious. Not only that but it is jam-packed with anti-inflammatory nutrition.
I have a mild obsession with chia-seeds. They give you all the creaminess of cream caramel without the guilt.
If you have not used these amazing seeds before then I encourage you to try them. What starts as a tiny seed, once activated, becomes a sponge. Can you believe this huge bowl of porridge was made from just 4 tablespoons of seeds?
In a recent podcast on cardio-vascular disease, Chris Kresser discussed natural aspirin alternatives (that are anti-histamines and mast-cell stabilisers). (1)
Chris concluded that research showed that natural aspirin alternatives were as effective as aspirin with none of the side-effects.
He identified both Pycnogenol® (pronounced Pik-nah-jeh-nol) and Policosanol to have been found to be as effective as aspirin for cardio-vascular health. (2) (3)
In this post I provide additional information on these natural aspirin alternatives (that are anti-histamines and mast-cell stabilisers).
I have had the opportunity to personally speak to Chris Kresser about his treatment protocol for histamine intolerance, once personally, and another in a forum in New Jersey.
For those who do not know Chris, he is an integrative medicine practitioner in San Francisco, who has a thriving practice (of around 1500 patients, a wait list of 2 years, and with his books closed to new patients) that includes many patients with histamine intolerance.
I don’t really do diets, but I sort of have calmly, and slowly, evolved into a Paleo Diet, that has been one of the keys to my recovery.
I am sharing an overview of the Paleo Diet, how I’m doing it low histamine, and how it lowered my histamine burden.
Before we start I am not trying to convince you that a Paleo Diet is right for you. Everyone has his or her own bio- individuality. Mine just happens to be Paleo.
Histamine intolerance is also not a diagnosis but a symptom. My diagnosis might be different to yours. I have had mine all my life. There is an infographic here about this.
That’s why your body (and the way it feels after eating a food) trumps anything I say, or any diet rules, or any food list. Your body knows best. And do seek the advice of your healthcare professional. My diet is endorsed by my immunologist.
