A question of an acupuncturist in a group of Facebook, Acupuncturists on Facebook
Any suggestions for histamine intolerance? Seems to be part of a pattern involving chronic silent migraines in my patient. I'm not sure this ig-(something) regulated 'histamine intolerance' is something I can treat. I've diagnosed as an earth & metal type with deficiencies of Kidney Qi and phlegm stagnation. Thin weak pulse, slightly reddish, slightly puffy, sticky tongue with some prickles.
Histamine Intolerance - www.histamine-intolerance.info/ Histamine Intolerance Histamine intolerance is the intolerance towards “normal” levels of histamine in food caused by a decreased activity of the histamine-degrading enzymes diamine oxidase (DAO) or histamine N-methyltransferase (HNMT). In the gut the main enzyme is DAO while in other parts of the body like the skin and brain the enzyme HNMT degrades histamine.
