    Default Study: Antihistamine Pills Linked to Male Infertility

    Taking hay fever pills may put men at higher risk of infertility, a study claims.
    The antihistamine tablets, which cost around $10 each, treat symptoms of mild allergies such as hay fever.
    They control levels of histamine, a molecule produced by the immune system when facing a threat.


    Scientists in Argentina, who mostly tested animals, concluded hay fever tablets are likely to affect the production of hormones in the testicles.
    This can hit sex drive, lead to lower-quality sperm ó and less.

    Buy raw local honey and use a tsp. everyday throughout the winter to beat seasonal allergies. It may take some people a little longer, but have patience you will be greatly rewarded once your immune system helps you build a natural immunity.

    Histamine Intolerance List of Worst Foods

    If you have allergies, you will be very familiar with what histamine is: the chemical involved in promoting inflammation to fight against the presence of an allergic protein. Humans have evolved an immune system to react this way to foreign invaders, including pathogens, allergens, and irritants. However, some people have too much of this natural chemical because of their genetics and diet. Here is a compiled histamine intolerance food list and the best probiotic you can take to cure this condition. So, read on to be sure that you don’t have this mentally and physically crippling condition because it can silently affect many people when they don’t even know it.

    What is Histamine?
    Histamine is the major inflammatory chemical that is released by your immune system as a way to try to trap and kill something invading your body. It is actually involved in many aspects of your health, including your digestion, nervous system and brain cell communication because it is a neurotransmitter.

    This naturally-produced compound is also extremely important in the functioning of stomach acid, the permeability of red blood cells and muscle contraction. Histamine is produced and stored in white blood cells. (1)

    You are probably most familiar with histamine in regards to your immune system because of all the allergy medication commercials claiming they are the best at preventing histamine release. This chemical is considered the “first line” of defense, or an inflammatory mediator.

    We can basically call self-inflicted inflammation by the body to be a mild reaction for trying to defend against mild invaders. More severe reactions would include fever and vomiting.

    Whenever inflammation occurs in the body, histamine will be present and result in symptoms. At this point in medicine, it is easy to claim that inflammation is the foundation of most health problems. (2)

    You can also look at it this way: if we didn’t have histamine responses, we would never have health symptoms. But at the same time, we would also die very easily from invaders. I view this flawed immune process as proof that nature and evolution is imperfect and always changing.

    What is Histamine Intolerance?
    Although, histamine is the key to a vital bodily process that can protect us from death thousands of times each day, excess amounts of it in the body is called histamine intolerance. Everyone’s genetics are different and bodies react differently to each environmental stressor. In some, histamine is the answer to all problems.

    For these people, food and seasonal allergies, the presence of pathogens, and environmental irritants all mean excessive histamine release to remain alive. Unfortunately, this means that you will have to live with uncomfortable symptoms of histamine intolerance.

    There are a few things that can lower your tolerance threshold for histamine, like disease, hormone problems, menopause, medications, allergies, and poor diet. (3)

    A few conditions may lead to histamine intolerance or problems with the process of breaking down histamine. This chemical is usually broken down by two special enzymes called histamine N-methyl transferase and a mucus enzyme called diamine oxidase (DAO). The most common and likely cause of histamine intolerance would be a deficiency in the diamine oxidase enzyme.

    When you are healthy, histamine levels regardless of why it is produced, is quickly eliminated by these enzymes when the problem has been resolved. In some people, the rate of breakdown is lesser than that of the rate of production of histamine. This results in high systemic levels of histamine in the body. At the clinical level, this appears to doctors as a chronic allergy problem, when that is not an accurate explanation of the problem at all. (4)

    Histamine intolerance is highly correlated with allergies, but it should not be classified as one. That may suggest that one thing in your environment or diet is the cause of high histamine levels when that is likely not the case for this condition.

    Histamine Intolerance Symptoms
    Everybody has a level of histamine that they can tolerate without symptoms. If you exceed that level, you could suffer from:

    Digestive upset: heartburn, indigestion, acid reflux
    Headache
    Flushing of the face
    Rash
    Fast or slow heartbeat with frequent skipped beats
    Low blood pressure or vasodilation. You can physically notice this if your skin feels squishy.
    Runny nose or congestion
    Watering eyes
    Swelling of the belly, face, hands, or feet
    Heartburn
    Itching, even when your skin is not irritated/eczema
    Harsh menstrual cycles.
    Anxiety or depression
    Fatigue or weakness
    Irritability
    Insomnia

    Even healthy people that eat organic salads and exercise every day can experience the symptoms of histamine intolerance and not even realize it.

    Histamine intolerance also makes existing conditions worse because it raises levels of inflammation. In cases of eczema, rash, acne and other skin problems, this is very noticeable. When high histamine foods are consumed, these symptoms will be increased in severity. These conditions likely have an entirely different root cause.

    For women, histamine intolerance symptoms will manifest heavily during menstruation because of histamine’s effect on hormones. Interestingly, pregnancy seems to cure allergies and histamine intolerance or at least significantly reduce the symptoms. Women frequently claim that they feel much better and look the best they ever have. (5)

    This is likely because the placenta produces a very large amount of diamine oxidase, which breaks down histamine rapidly as discussed before. This makes it almost impossible for the woman’s levels of histamine to create symptoms. This is why many women feel healthy and euphoric during pregnancy.

    What we can take away from this is that histamine intolerance is very common and

    Pregnancy = Cure for excess histamine levels

    Histamine Intolerance Food List
    You can actually absorb histamine from food sources as well, and if you consume them on a regular basis, this can exacerbate the problem of histamine intolerance you could have. It could also be the root cause of the problem.

    The content of histamine in foods is controversial because the amount varies depending on the duration of time the food was stored, the ripeness of the food, exposure to heat from cooking and mechanical processing. All of these factors contribute to the presence of histamine in the foods.

    Below is a widely accepted histamine intolerance food list for people who suffer from this condition:

    Alcohol: All kinds, but most notably beer, wine and champagne.
    Cooked meat: smoked fish, salami, beef, pork, etc.
    Raw Meat: shellfish, tuna
    Pickled and canned foods: pickles, vegetables, relish, soy sauce
    Fermented milk foods: yogurt, kefir, buttermilk
    Aged cheese: parmesan, gouda, swiss, cheddar
    Fruit: dried fruit, strawberries
    Vegetables: tomatoes and tomato concentrate products
    Legumes: Chickpeas, soybeans, peanuts, red beans
    Beverages: Milk, soda, other sugary beverages
    Spices: Cinnamon, chili powder, nutmeg, curry powder
    Additives: Tartrazine and artificial colors
    Preservatives: Benzoates and sulphites, vinegar
    Grains: wheat, buckwheat, rye, corn
    Foods that facilitate production of histamine in the body: Citrus, papaya, pineapple, nuts, egg whites, food fillers and additives.
    Diamine oxidase inhibitors: Alcohol, caffeinated tea

    This histamine intolerance food list doesn’t include items that you are allergic to, which will uniquely raise your histamine levels. This is why avoiding the foods you are allergic and intolerant to is important for healing. Eliminating excess histamine is one of the first steps you can do to heal your allergies and other conditions.
