"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!

I have no experience of this. I thought it was an alternative cancer therapy? I believe it is very strict exclusion diet based on cold pressed linseed oil (flaxseed) which I can understand as most western diets major in omega 6 rather than 3. I would need to check out any diet before I decided to follow it.
In my view any prolonged extreme diet or indeed, long fasts, should be closely medically supervised to ensure safety.
Re diet change generally : If you take someone on a typical diet of lots of fast food and high processed food, the so called Standard American Diet or ”SAD”, and you change that diet radically then, the body is almost bound to respond in some ways. (Please note, no offence meant to American friends here .. I am coining a phrase.. The Standard British Diet is on a par with the SAD but SBD isn’t such a good acronym!)
My diet I believe is super healthy but I am still pleased to get my essential fats, vitamins and minerals checked at frequent intervals to ensure I am not lacking in anything.
The idea of improving the function of the body at a cellular level is of interest to me and I have had blood irradiation therapy myself to support my immune system and initially to reduce joint pain.
Thanks for your question x:)
