The role of bacteria and mast cells is an emerging area of medical research.
Mast cells are best recognized for their role in inflammation, allergies, and lectins, however, the role of bacteria and mast cells are also crucial.
Mast cells play a critical role in the defense against pathogens, bacterial, and viral infections.
This natural role of mast cells seems to have slipped off the radar, in favor of inflammation, and yet the activation of mast cells by infections is well recognized in the scientific literature.
A recent discussion paper co-authored by Theoharides highlights the impact on bacteria and mast cells.
This paper so mirrors my observations that I wanted to highlight these views whilst waiting for the research to catch up.
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.
Today I am releasing my new ebook Nourished : Over 30 Delicious Low Histamine Soups which is available for download on all major book selling platforms.
