Histamine balance in the body is key to maintaining allergic responses and gastrointestinal symptoms. When histamine accumulates in the body, an array of symptoms can occur. Histamine intolerance is becoming more and more common and personally I see a lot of it in my clinic. It is difficult to diagnose and poorly understood. Histamine Intolerance is not caused by a reaction to the actual foods high in histamine; it is the body’s reaction to the histamine in or released from the food. It is cumulative, unlike food sensitivities or allergies.
