"I used to be a' foodie' and now I am a "foodist'"
Welcome to my health and wellbeing blog.
I’m not a raw foodist by choice. I was recently diagnosed as having a complicated autoimmune condition including severe Histamine Intolerance and a form of reactive arthritis. I have become hypersensitive to high histamine foods, pollen, dust and some everyday chemicals. My condition affects every area of my life.
I have Mast Cell Activation Disease (MCAD).
I was prescribed a low histamine diet and then a raw food diet to ease my symptoms and over the past 2 years I have overcome my reluctance to a new way of eating and living. I have been experimenting to combine the two diets and I have been learning how to eat a diet comprising mainly of low histamine raw fruit and vegetables and how to change the habits of a life time.
I am starting to feel healthier than I have ever been before. I have also lost 35 lbs in weight.
I will be sharing with you how I got here and I'll be exploring low histamine raw recipes, natural beauty products, how to cope with being "allergic to everything" and generally how to regain health and fitness and live life to the full despite my unusual condition!
Please feel free to message me with any suggestions, questions, or comments. I'd love to hear from you!

Hi and Welcome x
I put a “How to Go Raw, My Way” page on my blog. I recommend watching the films, “Forks Over Knives” and “Fat, Sick and nearly Dead” as they are so inspirational.
I eat mainly raw food so a lot of fruit and lot of greens juiced and in salads or smoothies and some nuts and seeds. I eat some steamed veg and I make veggie soups with legumes such as lentils.
This blog ( has about 4000 entries!) shows my journey as I have experimented a lot on the way. I will publish more about my food and lifestyle. I am also writing a book called “Healing Time” which is going to be a plan for recovery from illness.
