What Food Intolerance & Your Sinuses have in Common

For the first time in YEARS I’m not constantly congested.

My sore throat is gone

My headaches, gone

My energy, UP

My Sleep, DEEP

Everything is so much clearer!!

The Magic word?


You may know it in reference to the ANTI- Histamine pill, taken for allergies and hay fever ?

But what is Histamine and WHY do you care?

If you’re someone who constantly suffers from hay fever, sinus problems, gut issues or headaches, then histamine may be your gal…or guy.

Histamine is a biochemical that directly affects how both the Immune system and GUT Function. (Ever have random bouts of diarrhoea? You can thank Histamine for that)

It is also a neurotransmitter that affects thought and emotion (Hello anxiety).

Histamine production can be triggered by food intolerances, pathogens (unhelpful bugs),poor digestion (Read: low stomach acid that contributes to bloating, reflux, diarrhoea), physical and psychological stress and a leaky gut.

The good news is that you don’t have to put up with these constant seasonal (or daily!) battles with these symptoms (nobody enjoys sneezing whilst driving around a round a bout? Right?)

With some investigation and specific treatment protocols to heal a leaky gut, manage your stress and figure out your triggers, you can be well on your way to being symptom free!

It takes work, but it can be done :)

If you’re sitting there pondering how histamine is playing a role in your daily fatigue, congestion and sneezing episodes, get in touch for an assessment :) We’ll have you sneeze free in no time!

Happy Day!
