The Anxiety Summit

0 Comments 05 May 2015

I suffered from severe anxiety for most of my life. From shaking like a leaf during social situations, to all out vertigo and nausea in high stress work environments, to severe palpitations while chilling on the sofa (in other words for absolutely no logical reason whatsoever). I went through it all. The low point anxiety-wise was […]

Histamine safe ferments?

0 Comments 19 April 2015

As I’ve pointed out a number of times over the years (in almost every post!) cutting histamine containing foods out of the diet isn’t a great idea for long term healing.

There’s a transition happening in our household. We’re getting ripped! In the work out sense that is. And though I’m not a fan of any particular dietary dogma, I can’t deny that cutting carbs and increasing protein seems to lead to that six pack I rather fancy developing. I’ll never forget the day my kung fu teacher […]

0 Comments 26 March 2015

It wasn’t so long ago that a post I wrote on eczema being a mast cell/histamine intolerance related issue went pretty viral. A recent re-post on my Facebook page generated an impressive number of requests for me to look into whether rosacea is also one. Well, guess what folks – it sure is! Sadly it […]

Incredible news! I’ve been sitting on a piece of the juiciest information I have come up with in years, because I’ve been waiting to hear back from a research scientist who is on leave – but I just can’t wait anymore… Scientists at Flinders University in Australia have invented a “revolutionary” method for testing food […]

0 Comments 17 February 2015

I’m going to keep this post brief. Not because it’s not worthy of lengthy discussion and debate, but because I feel that there’s a good amount of information on this blog and in my books about the dangers of antihistamines.
