People all over the world suffer from histamine intolerance without being aware of it. We itch, sneeze, suffer from joint pain, inflammation, sleep disorders, irritability, anxiety, bowel disease, diarrhea, flatulence, stomach pain, heartburn and acid reflux, nausea, bloating and other digestive problems, eczema, psoriasis, tissue swelling, urticaria (hives), itching skin, itching scalp, sinusitis, runny nose, puffy eyes, hay fever, asthma, and breathing difficulties, or endure tension headaches, migraines, fuzzy thinking, dizziness, irregular heartbeat, painful periods (women), sudden drops in blood pressure, faintness or flushing, immediately after the consumption of histamine-rich foods, or many hours afterwards. Histamine is colorless, odorless and tasteless - invisible and undetectable except by scientific analysis, and yet crucial to our well-being. Individual histamine tolerance thresholds vary greatly. A range of circumstances including our genes, our environment, our diet and stress, cause our bodies' histamine levels to rise. If they rise faster than our bodies can break them down, we experience the excessive inflammation brought on by histamine intolerance, or HIT. The good news is, if we can understand what is happening and why, we can treat or prevent this widely unrecognized condition. By far the best way to treat histamine intolerance is with diet. All foods with the potential to raise histamine levels should be avoided until symptoms improve. This book discusses HIT in depth, including causes, symptoms and therapies, backed by scientific research. Along with a list of foods to help HIT sufferers, it includes a wide range of recipes for everything from entrees to desserts.

HIT – Histamine Intolerance – is a condition that affects many people but remains largely undiagnosed. The symptoms of histamine intolerance (HIT) are caused by the inability of the body to break down histamine sufficiently. These symptoms can appear very like an allergy and can cause stomach and intestinal complaints, migraine, tiredness and skin problems, to name but a few. This is in most cases because of the reduced activity or low presence of an enzyme called diamine oxidase (DAO), which is mainly responsible for breaking down histamine and other biogenic amines ingested through food. Foods that are known culprits include: red wine, ready meals, cured meats, mature cheeses, tomatoes and aubergines. It can make people's lives a total misery. But it CAN be brought under control with the RIGHT DIAGNOSIS and the RIGHT DIET. This book is a guide to how to achieve both. It helps both health professionals and patients gain insight. After the great success of the first edition, this second edition contains a new section on the different points of view about diagnosis as well as a second food list - a tolerance index which resulted from a survey of 800 participants who judged 109 foods according to their individual threshold - side by side with the scientifically based food list.

Histamine is an important mediator of allergic diseases, but knowledge of histamine as a cause of numerous non-allergic symptoms and signs is limited. This book offers wide-ranging coverage of histamine intolerance. There is extensive background discussion of the origin of histamine, its content in food and alcoholic beverages and intolerance to red wine. Diagnosis of histamine intolerance is explained and the various symptoms of histamine intolerance are clearly described. Subsequent chapters cover the relation of histamine to a wide variety of conditions, including drug intolerance, atopic dermatitis, seasickness and osteoporosis. This book will prove of value in clinical practice by facilitating differential diagnosis, which is by no means straightforward given the multiplicity of symptoms of histamine intolerance and by assisting in the selection of therapeutic measures.

Histamine intolerance manifests in a host of confusing symptoms. These reactions can flare up, then calm down for seemingly unknown reasons. Why does it seem like a food is fine for you to eat one week and the next week results in a rash, or you can't breathe through your nose? Symptoms of histamine intolerance include skin rashes, hives, persistent fatigue, itching, flushing and severe sweating, joint, bone, or tissue pain; headaches and migraines, racing heart rate, tearing or dry eyes, vertigo, low body temperature, reactions to scents, odors, or chemicals; numbness and tingling, unexplained anxiety, low, or sudden drops in, blood pressure; persistent diarrhea, foggy thinking, sinus problems, chest pain, and many more. Certain foods have been found to contribute to histamine intolerance symptoms. These include some of the most common foods and beverages in the average modern diet, such as tomatoes, wine, chocolate, yeast-raised bread, fermented foods, aged meats, pickles, commercial yogurt, and nut butters. Histamine intolerance has only been identified in the last decade, and many will discover that finding a name for the various combination of symptoms is a relief. Reactions to foods and other factors is individual and often difficult to identify. Histamine Intolerance Tracking Journal provides you with an all-in-one place to record what is going on with your health. It makes the task of discovering the foods and conditions causing your persistent health problems so much easier to track and will help you solve your histamine intolerance mysteries.
