4 Things You Should Do Every Morning (When You Have Histamine Intolerance)
People often ask how to get started addressing their histamine intolerance. How you begin each day can make a huge difference in how you’ll feel the rest of the day. Start your day off right by following the suggestions below.
DON’T RUSH TO BREAKFASTUnless you have a pre-existing condition or hypoglycemia, light fasting might be an excellent approach to fighting histamine inflammation. Research shows that up to forty percent of faulty white blood cells (including mast cells, where histamine lives in the body) can be regenerated in just five days of calorie restriction. Intermittent fasting has gained huge popularity in recent years. There are a number of variations, but prolonging the time between dinner and the next morning’s breakfast (break-fast) is a great way to incorporate fasting daily. There are many differing views on the ideal eating window, but don’t get extreme. Stress releases histamine after all… For example, you finish eating dinner by 8 pm and don’t eat breakfast until 8am (a nice gentle 12 hour fast). Or you could try extending the window one hour at a time till reaching your ideal window. Of course, you can also stop eating earlier in the evening (by 6 pm, for example), and then eat earlier in the day (10 am or noon).
