Histamine is involved in necessary immune processes to aid in battling foreign invaders or pathogens in the body, but when overproduced or when enzymes that aid in breakdown and removal are compromised, the body can become bombarded!
In this episode, Ali interviews guest, Dr. Becky Campbell, author of The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan and The 4-Phase Histamine Reset Plan to discuss how histamine intolerance can drive chronic illness and undesired symptoms including dermatitis, fatigue, migraines, heart palpitations, congestion, mood disorders, hormone imbalance and more! We will discuss the 2 primary enzymes involved in histamine breakdown diamine oxidase (DAO) and histamine N-menthyltransferase (HNMT) as well as conditions that interfere with enzyme activity and function. Learn about the stress-thyroid-adrenal-hormone connection to histamine intolerance and how gut dysbiosis can exacerbate the problems as well as the top high histamine foods to avoid when looking to reduce your body’s reactivity.
