Low Histamine Diet
Think of a classic presentation of an allergy-sufferer: itching skin, headaches, facial flushing, runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing. It’s an uncomfortable situation that many people fight often multiple times each year. If you’ve worked with patients who struggle with these symptoms of environmental allergies, they may have a histamine imbalance which can be more than just a seasonal phenomenon.

Histamine is a chemical present in most tissues that’s involved in inflammatory responses that work to rid the body of allergens. Through this one-hour presentation, you will learn what causes the body to have an over-circulation of histamines and how to control these symptoms through lifestyle and dietary interventions, aside from typical anti-histamine medications. We will discuss a low-histamine diet which may provide symptomatic relief for your patients. Additionally, you will learn about mast-cell activation syndrome (MCAS) and how histamine intolerance plays a role in the disorder. This lecture will teach you how mast cells are more than just an allergic or anaphylactic response, but also their role in immune activation, development of autoimmunity and many other disorders. Viewers will learn a functional medicine approach in identifying histamine intolerance cases and providing realistic interventions.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the role of histamines in the body and how they relate to allergies.

  • Identify common symptoms of histamine intolerance and potential reasons that cause high systemic histamine levels.

  • Differentiate between a low-histamine and high-histamine diet and discuss specific foods in each category.

  • Discuss the role of mast-cell activation syndrome (MCAS) in histamine intolerance.

  • Learn interventions to provide patients who suffer from histamine intolerance, including a low histamine diet, supplements and lifestyle changes.
