histamine in food triggers migraine

I started suffering at least 3 migraine per week (suddenly).
I trended what I was eating - I realised that the attacks happened after eating foods high in histamine.
I suspected that I might have leaky gut / or candida overgrowth in the stomach.
A test revealed that it was a candida overgrowth (very high levels ) in the stomach, also medium-high levels in the mouth.
I figured that the problem was that candida albicans had dominated the stomach and that the other 'good' bacteria that work to break down histamine were not able to work efficiently. - hence the histamine overload caused the migraines.
My GP recommended UDO's super 8 gold - a probiotic that kills candida.
I am on month number 2 of the probiotic now and back to eating almost everything and migraine free!
No more reactions to histamine foods!
