The menopause-histamine connection

1 Comment 27 January 2015

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 […]

Merry Christmas!

Hi all – I’ve been desperate to share my Christmas books with you but have been having major issues with my online store. A new one will be up in the new year finally. But better late than never… As with all my books, these, though super tasty, are stuffed full with antihistamine and anti-inflammatory […]

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 […]

Snack time! Gluten free lentil “pita” chips (vegan)

0 Comments 10 September 2014

I’ve got snacking on the brain. Not actual in between meals snacking, but finger foods that are super quick to prepare and store easily for days when I’m eating on the run. These lentil pita chips, like all my recipes, are highly customisable. When I first made these, I literally just dumped an indeterminate amount […]

I’m done with this condition

0 Comments 30 August 2014

Today, on the start of my 39th year on this planet, I’ve worn red lipstick, all day, for the first time in four years. This seemingly inconsequential act is the surest sign I’ve had to date that I am done with this condition. Those of you who have read my low histamine beauty book will […]

Is COX induced inflammation tripping up your recovery?

0 Comments 25 August 2014

Members of the Facebook mast cell/mastocytosis groups I frequent often share studies on mast cell inhibiting medications. By this I mean medications that prevent mast cells, a key component of our immune system, from breaking open and spewing histamine and other inflammatory elements, into our unsuspecting body. As you may well know, we need mast […]

Healing through positivity

Using the brain to heal the body

3 Comments 16 August 2014

Healing is truly a whole mind and body affair. As important as dietary changes have been, and in this case more so what I’ve added rather than eliminated, asking myself the right questions (at the right time) has been invaluable. I’m not talking about which supplement to take, or which healing protocol to follow, but […]
