The Right Histamine Intolerance Food List
The main issue with finding the right histamine intolerance food list, is that many foods can be a topic of contradiction, and it’s hard to find two identical lists, leaving you a bit confused about histamine levels and what foods to eat and avoid...
As a histamine intolerance researcher, I’ve put together the most comprehensive, up-to-date histamine intolerance food list available online.
My version of the histamine intolerance food list not only includes all high histamine foods but, also, foods that will liberate histamine or destabilize mast cells to increase internal histamine levels, even if the food itself is not high in histamine.
This food list ensures you will address histamine intolerance from all angles and experience symptomatic relief, regardless of the underlying cause.
