Triggers and Causes

histamine in food triggers migraine

  • By keyra1

    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!
