Referred to as ‘histamine intolerance’, the symptoms of histamine spill-over are seemingly random and often debilitating. The most common symptoms are sneezing, congestion, red itchy eyes, itchy throat and ears, but there are other issues that can happen throughout the body that you may not realize are related to histamine spill-over.
This histamine spill-over occurs when the body accumulates histamine faster than it breaks it down creating the annoying and often debilitating symptoms. The severity of the symptoms will be based on an individual’s genetics and their current state of health.
There always needs to be a certain amount of histamine in the body and once its done its job is should be quickly degraded by adrenaline and/or two enzyme systems (DAO –diamine oxidase and HMT – Histamine N-methyltransferase).
Managing this condition is complicated by the fact that many foods, drugs and environmental factors contain histamine, block the enzyme systems and/or trigger histamine release.
This workshop will teach you how to recognize, manage, treat and prevent histamine intolerance in yourself and your clients.
This workshop is appropriate for anyone who suffers from seasonal allergies or chemical sensitivities, and for all health care practitioners who want to be able to advise their clients on how to manage this annoying condition.
