This time, not one of my books! Dr Janice Joneja (her of the really useful Histamine Intolerance Q&A you can see on my histamine section here) has brought out a new Beginner’s Guide which I read and reviewed last week.
I thought it was great and will be very useful when people ask me: ‘Is it HIT (histamine intolerance), allergy or MCAS?’ I shall say: read this and then come back to me!
Meantime, here is the intro blurb to start you off, well done Janice!
A distillation of her years of research and experience in a really easy-to-understand format – complete with suggestions for a low histamine diet.
‘For the first time in this long, exhausting, lonely journey, I finally feel like I’ve been pointed in the right direction to find answers and wellness! Thank you Dr. Joneja!!’
If you’re struggling with your health, but the doctor can’t find anything actually wrong with you, then perhaps you have Histamine Intolerance. It’s a condition with a range of unpleasant symptoms, which can include headaches, flushing, itching, hives, swollen facial tissues, racing heart, digestive problems, irritability and more.
Many doctors don’t know much about Histamine Intolerance, although it’s estimated that 1% of the world’s population suffers from it. If you’re one of them, you’ll know first-hand how distressing and frustrating the disorder can be.
Dr Janice Vickerstaff Joneja saw the misery that this condition caused sufferers, and made it the focus of her research work; she’s been studying the condition and helping patients since the 1990s.
She’s now created this easy-to-read guide—which will help you understand if you have Histamine Intolerance, and what you can do about it—with clear advice and explanations, lots of interesting real-life cases, plus diet and treatment recommendations.
If you wonder if your symptoms could be caused by Histamine Intolerance—or if you believe they are and want to know what to do about it—this book is for you.
