Parasites trigger mast cell histamine release

0 Comments 16 July 2016

Tweet Mast cells are a key player in the immune system response.

0 Comments 26 June 2016

Tweet Bacteria cause histamine release in the body, so it makes sense to cook from scratch daily. Doesn’t it? Does eating fresh food devoid of leftover bacteria free up some of my histamine allowance for something more fun, like a raw cacao brownie? Hells ya.

Does negative brain conditioning fuel inflammation?
