food allergy

What if it's histamine?

Do you experience allergy symptoms, but no allergy has been found? Are you quite sure that you are reacting to certain foods, but can't pin them down because you seem to be fine with the suspicious food one day, but react on another? Maybe it's not an allergy, maybe it's histamine intolerance. Not great if you've got it, but you may be able to do something about it.

Food Allergy or Food Intolerance? What's the difference?

Did you know that 45% of us are suffering from some kind of food intolerance? Yet most of us don't even know it and have accepted the often mild, but niggling symptoms as part of the way we are. Others are quite sure that something doesn't agree with them. Note though that 'food allergy' and 'food intolerance' are not the same thing. Read my today's blog to find out how they differ.

Indispensable Acid

Many of us regularly take over-the-counter acid blockers or protone pump inhibitors because our stomachs are producing way too much acid. Or are they? Are you sure that you even have enough stomach acid? Find out what stomach acid does. 

What's left for me to eat?

The healthiest diets are those that have variety. However some conditions unfortunately warrant the avoidance of certain foods either temporarily or forever. If you have been told to cut out gluten, wheat, yeast or dairy, don't despair: Life without these foods is possible, and you may even find that your menu becomes a lot more interesting.
