Useful to be reminded that that histamine ‘intolerance’ is in fact no such thing; it is neither allergy, nor intolerance, but more a condition of histamine excess from inside and outside the body and an inability to break it down sufficiently. I liked the analogy of the bucket overflowing and Janice recommends you use the diet to keep the bucket level controlled.
Importantly, this book shows you whether it is likely to be histamine intolerance as opposed to allergy or MCAS, although I would have liked a little more on distinguishing it from food intolerance rather than allergy. It shows you, if it is HIT, what to do about it – mostly the diet but using DAO supplements (links given) and antihistamines etc can help. Janice does say DAO tests are not worth it, but mentions lots of times how boosting DAO helps so I personally think testing might help at least try and establish if low DAO is the issue behind it.
Now we know why headaches and reactions get worse with hormone change and also why reducing stress can make such a difference.
Excellent. Clear, concise and trustworthy advice from an experienced practitioner. I shall be recommending this to my patients when I’m asked: ‘Is it histamine intolerance?’ I shall say: read this; it’ll save me tons of time!
The information in the book uses a simple bucket analogy to explains why histamine intolerance is such a tricky condition to get to grips with. The build up of histamine in the body can be caused by multiple triggers and it is the total histamine content that causes the bucket to tip and the symptoms to worsen. It is reassuring to know that there is no evidence of histamine intolerance causing any major medical trauma. I look forward to seeing more research on the long term effect of histamine intolerance and any associated illness. Included was a common sense approach to IBS showing that this area too requires more medical understanding. With this book I am confident that the medical profession are still improving the knowledge of this subject and others that have been previously misunderstood or ignored.
The book is easy to read and navigate while still covering complex medical terminology. It is fully informative on the subject of histamine intolerance and its similarity to other conditions with the same symptoms. The constructive advice helps you to diagnose, understand and live with histamine intolerance. There are essential sections on which triggers to avoid and which foods are safe to eat. The advice on a trial exclusion diet is the same as the NHS advice I have previously received. In addition the use of the enzyme diamine oxidase and an antihistamine are strongly recommended. The emphasis is strongly weighted towards a monitored exclusion diet, with enzyme and antihistamine medication and a carefully balanced diet to maintain healthy eating and replace lost nutrients.
Many of my questions were answered as I read through the text. The case study section made it much more relevant to a real life situation. It shows that all conditions are complex to diagnose and advise when combined with extra factors such as other health conditions and presenting symptoms which may or may not be associated with histamine intolerance. I would like to see some suggestions as to qualified medical professionals who are knowledgeable in this area. It is very difficult to know who to trust when you have been searching for answers for many years. Suggestions of NHS and private practitioners would give people the chance to make the right appointments at an earlier stage in the diagnosis process.
