Why Your Immune System Might Be Polarized and Causing Histamine Sensitivity

mast cell stabilization

Listen as Dr. Gail Clayton and Mimi MacLean, mom of 5 and Lyme Warrior, discuss the acid-base balance, blood chemistry lab values, diet and mast cell stabilization. 

You can find the podcast on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.

Some main points discussed:

  1. One of the things that is really overlooked when stabilizing mast cells is the acid-base balance. This can be assessed by looking at your blood chemistry laboratory values of carbon-dioxide , sodium, and potassium. You want to see them pretty much in the middle of the reference range. High or low of any of these values may suggest an imbalance.
  2. Diet is very important. Whether you are following the Whole-30 or Auto-immune Paleo, your diet may still have to be modified further depending on what is going on with your gut and immune system.
  3. You may or may not have an auto-immune disease, but your immune system may be "polarized" in that direction which is very inflammatory. Good tissue perfusion and oxygen supply is first-line to block the auto-immune pathway and to restore immune homeostasis.
