Antihistamines increase Alzheimers risk

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. You’ll find more on that in my post on Benadryl. New research has come to […]

Excess histamine mimics anorexia

0 Comments 07 February 2015

In the past I have alluded to my anorexic-like phase, when I was only “able” to eat four or five foods. My weight plummeted to 52kg or so, on a 1.78m frame (114.5lbs, 5ft 10). Honestly, it wasn’t my first brush with the A word. When I was 14, a photo in our biology textbook […]

Guest post by Dale Brooks of the wonderful Menopause Histamine Connection blog. Before I get started, I’d like to thank Yasmina for the opportunity to write this for her blog. I’ve told her that when I refer to her to my best friend, I call her the Queen of Histamine. I’m sure I’m not the […]

The histamine-endometriosis infertility link

0 Comments 11 December 2014

I’ve been avoiding writing about this for some time. Not because I’m worried about never having children, but because I don’t want to alarm anyone. And that’s still not my intention – please, take this post with a heaping spoon of salt. If you are suffering from unexplained infertility, or repeated miscarriage, you may want […]

Love in a time of sickness

0 Comments 04 December 2014

It’s a question that came up when I first started dating, post diagnosis. What do I tell this new person in my life? How significant is what I’m going through? Will it define me and this potential relationship? Will he be grossed out and turned off by potentially having to shoulder this burden with me? […]

The asthma-histamine connection

0 Comments 13 November 2014

Just a few days ago I re-shared a post that garnered over 2,000 Facebook likes. I was totally shocked, as was mast cell/histamine researcher Dr. Theoharides, whom I spoke with right after re-posting. “I’m really surprised that people didn’t realise that eczema was related to histamine/mast cells,” he told me in response. And that got […]
