Could you have a problem with Histamines?

Could you have a problem with Histamines?

Do you get headaches, itchy or get flushed in the face?
Are you a light sleeper, have a runny nose or are intolerant to wine?

If you have these symptoms you could have histamine intolerance. Other symptoms of histamine intolerance include food allergies, runny nose, nasal congestion, large or swollen mosquito bites, dizziness when standing, low tolerance to alcohol, fatigue, feeling panicky or having trouble concentrating.

Histamine intolerance is when you have too much histamine in your body either due to, too higher level of production or intake or due to a reduced ability to breakdown histamine.

Histamine is made in the brain and stomach as well as in specific cells in the nose and mouth. Each area in the body produces histamine for a different function:
• The histamine in our brain helps keep us awake and prevents sleep
• In the stomach histamine helps the release of gastric acids that we need for digestion
• Histamine in our nose and mouth is released as an immune response to foreign invaders

Do you have amalgam fillings (the silver ones)? Or did your mother?

You could have high heavy metals as these fillings can leak toxic substances like mercury into the body. Mercury could still be an issue even if you have had your amalgam fillings removed as the mercury can be stored in your body. Mercury can be passed onto a child from the mother during pregnancy.

Mercury is toxic to our body and pushes out some of our very important minerals zinc, iodine and selenium. These minerals are extremely important for many functions in the body. If you have low zinc you may have concentration issues, a foggy head, poor immunity, twitches or digestive issues. If you have low iodine you may have hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, hair loss, dry skin or hair, cold intolerance or muscle loss; even though your bloods are in normal range. And low selenium can cause thyroid issues; selenium is also needed for the creation of glutathione peroxidase which is believed to help prevent cancerous cell changes in your body.

Once the mineral deficiencies and heavy metals have been identified then, here at The Naturopathic Clinic we will work with you to increase your minerals levels and decrease the toxic metals so that you can regain your health.Read more
