We, the histamine intolerant, tend to think about mostly food and its relationship to our histamine levels…or at least I do. But I know stress and other outside elements can also trigger reactions.
I was so angry about something today that my arm started to itch. It wasn’t a huge, bad reaction, but it was enough to remind me to stay calm (and carry on).
So if you think your histamine levels are effected by food only, think again. You can’t maintain a low histamine level by eating a low histamine diet only. Keep those stress levels low too.
I know, I know, we all live in a stressful world and lead stressful lives. So this is just really a reminder that the next time you get upset, don’t be surprised if your body reminds you that anger and stress are bad for you.
It’s another good reason to stop sweating the small stuff.
