The Histamine table
Awareness of the level of histamines in foods
Eat a varied and balanced diet with fresh and natural foods, as they contain low amounts of histamines and minute quantities of chemical additives.
WHAT ARE HISTAMINS?
Histamines are amine organic chemical compounds (R-NH2) derived from ammonia, are generated by the human body and are digested with food.
The symptoms of pollen allergies are related to the increase of histamines in the blood, the blood histamine levels considered normal are between 0.3 and 0.1 nanograms per millimeter (ng / ml).
Although pollen is harmless to most people, the immune system of allergy sufferers mistakenly identifies pollen as an enemy intruder that must be fought and expelled by the human body in actions such as: inflammation, runny nose, sneezing, coughing and in some cases suffocation.
The increase in histamine levels and its inflammatory effect is frequently related to causes of headaches and migraines.
Avoid eating foods with high histamine content as an adjunct to your allergy treatment.
Consumption of foods with high histamine content can aggravate the symptoms of allergic reactions.
If you suffer from allergies or migraines, some studies warns against ingesting foods that exceed 20 milligrams of histamines per kg of food. We recommend that your doctor or nutritionist determine and personalize what histamine levels are acceptable to you and what foods are right for your diet.
Table of evolution of symptoms
It is important that you mark the table as you were before practicing this method. Compare those symptoms with the symptoms 10 days after and 1 year after using the exercises. You can also have a notebook where you write down the changes when you experience them.
