You said : increasing the omega 3 fatty acids and reducing the 6s. I have studies somewhere on my old site showing that omega 3 fatty acids are key to histamine lowering diamine oxidase enzyme production, and also prostaglandin d2 (which potentiates the actions f histamine in the body) can be lowered with omega 3
Don't you mean that omega 6 fatty acids are key to histamine lowering DAO enzyme ?
The diamine oxidase enzyme is the enzyme which breaks down the histamine. Therefore people who have histamine intolerance need to focus on the production of DAO enzyme by increasing their intake of vitamin B, C, zinc, magnesium and manganese and of course eating your delicious recipes low in histamine.
Anyway, good luck everyone, you are all doing great !!!

I have had some trouble with sunflower (but it was sunflower butter mixed with sugar.......and I am pretty sure the sugar is what is making me sick and haven't really been brave enough to give seeds another go yet - confused as to why the sugar is such a bother) I would love to know if sunflower is okay...as well as nuts...because I used to love using almond and sunflower oil, but am concerned about histamine content. (Unfortunately there just isn't any reliable information to go on, it seems)
I may have to just try some of these things and see what my body thinks. I really appreciate your help!
I saw that you listed pumpkin as a low histamine source of omega 3, but everywhere I have read online says that pumpkin isn't allowed on a low histamine diet. Would you mind clarifying this for me (all the different info online has confused me more than once, sadly). Thank you!
What's a better (lower histamine) fat source:
Pastured Kerrygold Butter (salted) vs. Coconut oil?
