S02 E25 – Histamine’s Hidden Role in Health & Acne with Tracey Reed

How can you begin to pinpoint your own histamine triggers and manage them effectively? How can you incorporate specific foods into your diet that can impact overall histamine management?

In today’s episode, we have the pleasure to be joined by Tracey Reed, to discuss histamine’s hidden role in health & acne. Together we shed light on how histamine can infiltrate the body and the symptoms it can trigger, from chronic respiratory issues to acne. The conversation explores the complexity of histamine sensitivity and the importance of stabilizing mast cells through a balanced diet and holistic approaches. Cris shares her personal journey, dealing with debilitating symptoms and overcoming medical misdiagnosis, emphasizing resilience and proper guidance.

We highlight the importance of professional guidance in navigating the challenges of histamine intolerance and we offer insights from their book, “The Histamine Haven”, aimed at providing relief for chronic health issues. We also dive into the synergistic value of combining Western and holistic medicine to break the cycle of histamine-related symptoms effectively.

Let's finally get your skin cleared up.

Acne is more than skin deep; it's a signal of internal imbalances. This explains why prescriptions, medicated creams, and high-end facials often fall short. Clearing your skin requires an inside-out approach, and we're dedicated to guiding you every step of the way.

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
