Test your gut bacteria at home
All references are always at the bottom of the post.
There’s significant cross over between leaky gut (intestinal permeability) and histamine intolerance and mast cell activation symptoms…for example:
Digestive issues (gas, bloating/IBS)
Diagnosis of autoimmune disease: RA, Hashimotos’s, lupus, psoriasis, celiac
Mood disturbances: depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD
Skin issues; acne, rosacea, eczema
Mast cells and histamine are directly implicated in leaky gut/intestinal permeability, which may be why the antihistamine bioflavonoid quercetin has been shown to help heal the gut lining. You can read more about that here.
Because of this, I’ve found it beneficial to test exactly what’s going on with my gut bacteria using a great service called uBiome.
