What are histamine?
Histamines can also be involved in our nervous systems, our sleep patterns and immune system.
What do histamines do to our body?
Histamines also protect us from foreign things such as dust, pollens or poisons. When our immune system discovers a foreign invader for want of a better term. The immune cells called B- cells make IgE antibodies. These IgE antibodies spread throughout the body, telling other immune cells about specific invaders to look for.
Eventually mast cells and basophils pick up the IgE’s and become sensitized. When they come in contact with a target invader…They use histamine and other inflammatory chemical
When histamines go wrong in your body, they can cause a range of undesirable symptoms. In conditions such as allergies, autoimmune disorders, or histamine intolerance, histamines may be released inappropriately, leading to inflammation, itching, swelling, hives, nasal congestion, headaches, digestive issues, and other discomforts. In more severe cases, histamine can cause anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical attention. Understanding the underlying cause of histamine imbalances and implementing appropriate interventions such as dietary changes, supplements, medication, or stress management techniques can help manage the symptoms and restore balance to your immune system.
