Histamine Intolerance – So annoying

It has now been 6-7 months since my ability to eat meat has reduced dramatically due to histamine intolerance issues as well as due to leaky gut after a nasty bacteria I had.  It is now March and i still have issues tolerating histamine foods and I dont know how long it will take to eat like I did before. I have noticed that my meat intake has been a bit improved I can only tolerate fresh meat that’s been made but still nothing too old or leftovers I start having symptoms. The fresh meat i have no issues with is chicken and turkey, i can tolerate the free range. too. I miss the life I used to have where I ate everything.. now im eating this super restricted diet last few months and cooking almost everyday and haven’t got the toleration to eat outside.  I re-act to non organic vegetables and fruits still and to processed foods as well as anything else that has high histamine.. or any chemical things added. I wonder how much longer it will take to heal as now its been over a year since I started having all these problems. It has prevented me from going out and traveling which is one of my passions and also trying out new foods. I am stuck in a tight restricted food zone  which i just have to accept for now and hope for the best this tolerance level increases over time.

My muscle weakness is still there sometimes, in my reports i still show signs of inflammation which i think could be causing the issues with histamine, i just pray over time this goes away.


Leaky Gut Update #11

Well here we are at update 11 of the leaky gut story.. and im still trying to heal from the damage klebsiella have done. For about the last 4 months i developed some kind of histamine intolerence and still to this date I have histamine issues with meat which im still trying to figure out why and how to improve it. After months and months of mainly eating meat it seems my bucket has really quite overflowed.

This for me creates a problem as im unable to have that much meat unless it is very fresh. Another thing showing in my reports is my gut inflammation levels are not going down and still staying similar however food intolerences have improved. I just dont know how to get this histamine under control as its been going for a while. Organic Brown Rice protein powder has been my savour while having issues with meat, as well as lots of vegtables and fruit.

Some say avoid grains if you want the gut to heal..however what do i eat if I cannot have grains or meat, or beans a very limited diet with no options . My meals are mainly based around vegtables, sweetpotato, and ground flax, with some fruits, as well as organic brown rice protein powder at the moment. On occasion breast chicken or turkey depending on toleration.

I also got delivery of the seeking health histamine block, however even taking 2-3 of these tablets still does not help with the meat problem and histamine.. which means my gut in quite a bad shape and still time to go until healing.

Even now i’m feeling grains/nuts are becoming bit hard to tolerate..

Has anyone else been in this same situation?  How do you do a Paleo and low histamine diet? Im barely able to function sometimes on this diet and just cannot believe the complexity again how this is becoming especially considering that the bacteria has been cleared from the last test report.

Leaky Gut Update #10 – Histamine Intolerance

It has been a while since I updated my last blog post, however I’ve had a bit of a set back since then. I have developed some kind of histamine intolerance to meat and anything histamine.. so I have had to resort to other protein source foods such as buckwheat flour, flaxseed flour, brown rice protein powder etc. However I do miss my meat and can’t eat it as much.. other wise i get headaches and heart palpitations if it is too old or stayed a day in the fridge. From all the research I have done online it appears i am low in the DAO Enzyme which breaks down histamine foods in the gut. I did try fresh meat and I don’t have a problem, however the same meat the next day becomes  a problem..

I have purchased a product from the US called Histame which is supposed to break down histamine, you take it before a food, I have found it did partially work but not good enough, but i figured it must be the low dosage in the single tablet which only has about 4,000 HDU units, i did try two tablets however still was not much improvement. I will try next a new product Histamine Block which has 20,000 HDU units per tablet and see how this goes with meat. According to them you can take up to 4 tablets before a meal if you are dealing with severe histamine intolerance.  I did come across this PDF which details problematic histamine foods > SIGHI-FoodCompatibilityList_HIT(EN)

Hopefully as I continue to heal the gut this histamine problem will disappear. If anyone has histamine problems please comment and what you have done to make the condition better during leaky gut.
