The Faces of #Histamine - From #Allergies to #ERECTION to #Cancer & Brain Fog

HISTAMINE – FROM ALLERGIES TO DISEASE

Histamine not only produces common environmental allergy symptoms, but is also involved in the aging process, disease and tissue re-building.

WHERE HISTAMINE IS MADE & HOW DOES IT BREAK DOWN YOUR BODY?

Histamine is produced predominantly from two cells of the immune system when responding to allergies like pollen and dust – mast cells, eosinophils and basophils. Mast cells are especially numerous at sites of potential injury — the nose, mouth, feet, internal body surfaces, and blood vessels.

Histamine plays an important role in the body and is known to be involved in 23 different physiological functions. Due to this, it can have both positive and negative effects on many cells, tissues and organ systems in the body. Just the right amount of histamine reduces inflammation and promotes tissue healing. Too much histamine, or histamine that stays around too long, breaks down tissue leading to chronic health problems including allergies, joint pain, brain fog, memory issues, sleep problems, erection and sexual arousal issues and even cancer.

HOW HISTAMINE CAN CAUSE DISEASE – ANYWHERE!

Histamine can cause destructive changes virtually anywhere in the body because it is found in the connective tissues of the organs and tissues. When histamine levels increase, whether from an increase in environmental or food allergens, or within the body as a response to aging and disease, tissue destruction and inflammation ensues.  Reducing your exposure to known environmental or food allergies (not easy) is important for reducing symptoms and healing. 

Building your immune system and consuming foods and other nutritional products that reduce inflammation and help repair organs and tissues is just as important for overall health. See my top choices of natural compounds that have been shown to help reduce tissue damage and symptoms from excessive histamine.

HISTAMINE AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Histamine can help the immune system fight infection by increasing the permeability or “leakiness” of the capillaries allowing white blood cells and immune proteins fight pathogens in infected tissues.  Histamine is stored in the body, but when the body is not in need of the histamine it is inactivated by enzymes. Taking enzymes by mouth (especially bromelain from pineapples), along with other immune modifying herbs and tissue builders, reduces tissue destruction and inflammation in the eyes, throat, muscles, brain and nose 

YOUR BRAIN ON HISTAMINE

In the central nervous system, histamine is released into the synapses . Which are the spaces between the neurons or brain cells that form the brain and spinal cord. Various forms of histamine are produced not only in our nervous system and brain, but also in the stomach, immune cells, thymus, spleen and colon. All of these tissues are connected in the body and often when one is affected by histamine the other organs try and take up the slack. Sometimes, the tissues can’t fight the excessive histamine and inflammation and symptoms occur.

The trick to fighting the “histamine-fire” is by supporting the immune system, reducing inflammation, promoting tissue repair and maximizing overall diet and nutrition. – Dr. Wald

…but what about the brain and histamines damaging effects?

Metabolites of histamine are increased in the cerebrospinal fluid, the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, and are especially high in people with schizophrenia.  If histamine can aggravate or cause some of the symptoms of schizophrenia, it can certainly cause cloudy thinking, moodiness, fatigue, brain fog and other emotional symptoms in the rest of us.

HOW HISTAMINE SCREWS WITH YOUR SLEEP

Histamine neurons in the brain increase wakefulness and prevent sleep.  Special neurons called histaminergic neurons have a wakefulness-related effect whereby reducing REM and NREM  (non-REM) sleep.

HISTAMINE AND STOMACH PROBLEMS

Histamine produces stomach acid and can aggravate or cause esophagitis, gastritis and inflammation in the small and large intestine.

SEXUAL FUNCTION & ERECTION

Loss of libido and erectile dysfunction can result from histamine effects upon the brain and its sexual control centers.

THE CANCER-DISEASE-HISTAMINE CONNECTION

Histamine suppresses the immune system and a weak immune system cannot recognize abnormal cellular changes such as those involved in the formation of cancer and its spread. Histamine breaks down blood and lymphatic vessels causing them to become “leaky” or more porous allowing cancer cells to reach other organs – this process is known as metastatic spread. 

THE PROBLEM WITH ALLERGY TESTS

Simply put, they are unreliable. Skin allergy tests rely on placing various potential allergens in the skin; this procedure uses standardized versions of foods or environmental substances that may not at all be like those that you are exposed to. Also, when one area of the skin reacts to an allergen injected into it (IgE testing), as is the procedure of skin allergy tests, inflammation can “sensitize” the skin next to the where the allergen was placed giving a false allergy result. Also, foods are more likely to cause allergy tests when placed where they do not belong, like the skin as opposed to when eaten and worked upon through the process of digestion and absorption in the stomach, small and large intestine.

ANY INFLAMMATION IN THE BODY CAN CAUSE A FALSE SKIN OR BLOOD FOOD OR ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGY TEST!

If you have inflamed joints, or you stub your toe badly, or your skin is inflamed – IF YOU HAVE ANY INFLAMMATION AT ALL, food and environmental allergy tests can yield FALSE POSITIVE RESULTS.

Allergy tests, if used in context with other tests and clinical intuition on the part of your health care provider, can be useful. The most accurate way of knowing what foods you are sensitive to is to eliminate them entirely from your diet for six weeks and then add them back one by one, under professional supervision, and see if your symptoms come back. Symptoms produced by eating a food do NOT HAVE TO BE CAUSED FROM ALLERGENS! Symptoms provoked by eating suspected allergic foods can be caused by digestive enzyme and acid deficiencies or by provoking certain neurologic, hormonal and other systems in the body. SO WHAT DO YOU DO? Ask us to perform our BLOOD DETECTIVE LONGEVITY PANEL THAT CHECKS:

-       Inflammatory systems

-       Hormonal balance

-       Abbsorption of nutrients and foods

-       Enzyme capacity

-       Immunity

-       and over 100 other tests – SO YOU KNOW WHAT IS REALLY     HAPPENING!  

The body can react in times of healing and distress by producing histamine, but histamine is the RESULT OF THE PROBLEM that then becomes the problem. So, IT’S MY OPINION THAT CREATING A METABOLIC MAP OF THE BODY IS THE BEST WAY TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF HISTAMINE AND OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS.  

BEATING ALLERGIES AND HISTAMINE TROUBLES

Specific natural products in a special combination to combat the unwanted effects of excessive histamine

Based on my research of the National Library of Medicine, a medical data base containing over 3 million scientific citations, and my 26 years of clinical experience – here are my top 5 choices of the best HISTAMINE-FIGHTERS. It is my recommendation that they be used together in the ratios (balance) that I have directly below –

Vitamin C as Ascorbic Acid USP                             300 mg once to twice per day

Quercetin Dihydrate                                                400 mg once to twice per day

Stinging Nettles Leaf                                               400 mg once to twice per day

Bromelain (2400 GDU/g) from pineapple              100 mg once to twice per day

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine USP                                         50 mg once to twice per day

THESE SUGGESTIONS ARE THE MOST BASIC, BUT ALSO VERY IMPORTANT! Depending upon your genetics, nutrient deficiencies and other health problems, the HISTAMINE-FIRE can be extinguished! Intravenous vitamin C and nutritional synergists are reserved for more resistant environmental allergies. 

It's all about balance!
