DIAGNOSING HISTAMINE DISORDERS
I’ve been told, by a number of doctors, that it takes, on average, a decade to diagnose someone with a mast cell disorder. I personally consider histamine intolerance to be a mast cell disorder. It took me almost 30 years and 68 doctors to get to histamine intolerance, and then another three years and two doctors to get to mast cell activation disorder.No matter the diagnosis, I believe, and have seen, that histamine/mast cell disorders, are totally manageable through dietary changes, a healthy but low impact exercise regime, regular meditation and stress management, and a whole heap of positivity – with or without meds. I don’t take meds. Don’t just take my word for it, check out my testimonials page and my interview with leading mast cell expert Dr Castells (on the role of diet and exercise in mast cell disorders).
