Today’s video is all about mast cells. Mast cells, mast cells, mast cells. They’re essential to our body but, when overactive, can cause serious health issues. While I cover mast cells in the video, you can also learn more about another key factor in allergies called histamine.
While I have been treating my overactive mast cells for many years now, things have not resolved 100%. This is due to underlying, recurrent infections (yeast, epstein barr virus, and bartonella). Of course, getting rid of these infections is not a piece of cake and they keep my immune system very inflamed. In turn, my mast cells are always on edge. While I have done many different therapies in the past, I currently am only taking chromolyn sodium (oral), d-hist (supplement), and doing urine injections once a week. I’ve found that the longer I am on my bartonella treatment, the less often I react. However, if the infection ramps up for any reason (full moon, treatment, sluggish detox pathways, etc…), things get much worse and I experience my throat closing much more often (a tell tale symptom of both bartonella and active mast cells). To learn more, be sure to watch the video!
