Spencer Feldman joins the show to talk about allergies, autoimmune histamine reactions, and what’s really happening during these reactions. He goes over why allergic reactions can be isolated to different parts of your body, including your brain and your bladder, and what those symptoms look like.
Spencer then covers the different components of your histamine receptors and how they respond to different types of treatments; including different strategies, supplements, devices, and foods that can help stop your immune system from overreacting. If you or a loved one is dealing with allergies, histamine issues, autoimmune disorders, or mass cell activation syndrome, make sure to tune into this show!

Tessamet: Histamine Detox Supplement
Primitive humans had a lot of helminths (worms) to contend with. Too large to be attacked by the immune system, the body had to remove them mechanically. Mast cells release histamine which causes itching to make us scratch them off, coughing to get them dislodged from our respiratory tracts, a runny nose and sneezing to get them out of our sinuses and diarrhea to get them out of our intestines. With allergies, the body mistakes harmless allergens for parasites and tries to remove them. This response causes us symptoms.
Histamine is both a hormone and a neurotransmitter and it has receptors all throughout the body. There are 4 classes of histamine receptors, named H1, H2, H3, H4.H1 and 2 go to the skin, gut and lungs and give us our classic allergy symptoms. Itchy or painful skin, food allergies, asthma and sinus inflammation. Less well known are that they also go to the heart and the reproductive organs. This means we can have an allergy heart, an allergic prostate, an allergic uterus. To properly deal with histamine 4 actions must be undertaken. 1- Re-educate the T cells of the immune system not to react to harmless allergens. 2- Suppress the over creation of histamine from the dietary amino acid histidine. 3- Stabilize mast and other cells that release histamine. 4- Increase serum DAO (diamine oxidase), the enzyme responsible for the break down of histamine.
H3 receptors in the brain control the release of neurotransmitters. If body levels of histamine go too high, to protect the brain from toxic levels of histamine (and mania), H3 will LOWER histamine in the brain. This can lower the level of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine, dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine and GABA. Low acetylcholine makes it hard to learn and remember. Low dopamine decreases motivation and in the extreme leads to Parkinson’s disease. Low serotonin leads to depression. Low Norepinephrine leads to difficulty focusing and ADHD. Low GABA makes it hard to relax or get deep sleep.
