I truly believe no one works harder than the Low Histamine Chef to educate people about histamine intolerance. Her work has proved invaluable to me, and I know thousands of others. She’s positive, engaging, and most importantly generous with her research.
She’s put up on her site two interviews that might be of interest. I’ve watched the one with Dr. Brian Clement and have listened to only part of the Joneja interview. (Not because it’s not interesting, just because it’s 45 minutes long and I just didn’t finish)
I highly recommend stopping by Yasmina’s site and checking them out.
The one thing I would say about the Clement interview is I wish he weren’t so flippant (in my opinion) about the link between hormones and histamine intolerance. I’ve read other things he’s said aside from this interview and I just don’t think he gives the hormone link enough weight.
The other thing I want you to keep in mind, especially if you are new to this issue, is that when someone says the elimination diet doesn’t work, like he says, and that’s not a correct quote it’s a paraphrase, he means that it won’t heal you. Of course many of us have to start by eliminating certain foods, but that will only stop the body from reacting to those foods. It won’t heal the histamine problem. To do that, you must work to find the underlying issue while maintaining a high, nutrient dense diet. I wanted to clarify that for some of you who might think that was confusing if you are using an elimination diet to control your symptoms.
So take a look at The Low Histamine Chef’s site.
