New here and trying to confirm if a Histamine Intolerance aligns with my symptoms

  1. This could be histamine intolerance, but it could also be a million other things; salicylate intolerance for example, or a sulfite allergy. The best way to know if it’s a histamine intolerance is to eat very low histamine for a few weeks and see how you feel. There are many lists online telling you what to eat and not eat but the most important thing is to stay away from protein that has been ground or allowed to age: in other words, if eating meat, choose whole cuts, buy them frozen or freeze them after purchase, then freeze any leftovers immediately and, when you’re ready to eat them, thaw/reheat them quickly (think microwave, not countertop). Likewise stay away from yogurt, aged cheeses, fermented vegetables… if you’re still not sure after eliminating these and other high histamine foods for 3 or 4 weeks, reintroduce them all at once and see if you feel worse. If so, it just means that your elimination diet was not long enough/not low enough in histamine, and also that you may need some nutritional supplements or enzymes to further lower your histamine levels. Good luck, keep us posted, and be sure to do some reading- there’s lots of great info out there!
