"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!

Wanna make a huge change to your health? The first thing I did when changing my diet was to cut out processed sugar. I got headaches, toothache, joint pain for a week but I lost 7lb in a fortnight and my skin cleared.
No I never use artificial sweeteners - Chemical nightmare for me.
Now if I try a piece of a commercially made chocolate bar it tastes odd as I can now discern the salt content and the underlying chemical taste.
Ate an apple before going for a run/jog/walk ( I am still getting myself back into this). Now drinking a green smoothie made up of a large ripe banana, a whole little gem lettuce, 3 large sticks of celery, and a cup of water. Yum!
I want to do a lot of work today and my experience is that nothing clears the brain fog like raw food.
… It would be so nice to feel normal again and not to have to keep a tight control on what I eat.
