"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!

This is for any of you that suffer from fatigue and or anxiety. My friend Helen’s post (click here) is timely advice.
Helen is staying with me for the weekend helping me with my husband as his usual live in care giver is on holiday. It’s great to see a once very ill person now have so much energy. She is buzzing around the place at the moment cooking for us all as well as sorting out my husband’s clothes and helping him, as necessary, to get up, shower and dress…
To think I once used to have to look after her as she was confined to bed with CFS …
So many of us have a lot of negativity to deal with surrounding our health issues. This post from a friend of mine who has recovered from her own illness caught my eye today.. Click here for the link.
I use Helen’s method of dealing with issues a lot - It works for me…
Helen lived with me for a while while when she was at the height of her illness and she left me in such a state that she had to be escorted to her parents’ home by car as she was otherwise too ill to travel. It is great to see her now so much better, now able to work again, setting up her own business and even getting married. All things she could not imagine a few years ago… . :))
Just made a green smoothie for breakfast - my new habit for November.
If you need recipes/inspiration have a look at my smoothie page on the front of my blog x
