Histamine intolerance manifests in up to 3% of the population (80% in middle-aged women), but how much is unidentified or unreported considering the rapidly increasing number of those who suffer?
Since histamine is involved in inflammatory and immune response as well as regulating physiological function in the gut and acting as a neurotransmitter, increased levels can cause a myriad of unwanted and often debilitating symptoms. To make matters worse, those with genomic expression affecting either direct histamine enzymes or related methylation function have more severe reactions. Patients struggle with the conventional recommendation of antihistamine medication with unwanted side-effects and restrictive histamine avoidance diets. They want more answers!
It is time clinicians gained more insight into root causes and biomarkers that direct more targeted intervention to provide maximum effectiveness in treatment. Toxic burden, medications, infections/gut health, stress and lifestyle choices, inflammation, genetic expression and nutritional status must all be considered. Solutions will encompass a broad spectrum of support that provide not only symptom relief, but that which addresses root cause as well.
Your webinar access information is located in the receipt email and your account dashboard.
- Discuss the role of histamine in the body and describe the effects of histamine intolerance vs Mast Cell activation.
- Identify underlying root causes including enzyme defects, inhibitors, and competitors, along with lifestyle, and nutritional factors that lead to histamine intolerance.
- Explore genomic implications direct to histamine or to related methylation function.
- Utilize key biomarkers to help create targeted intervention and achieve homeostasis.
- Discover the important role of diet and supplements to offer anti-inflammatory, immune support and natural antihistamine alternatives to mitigate the histamine response
