Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip
In this week’s tip we discuss a few key attributes of a low histamine diet and some general guidelines for introducing such a diet into your lives.
Increasing fiber intake may help with Crohn’s disease. However, I would not recommend this during a flare, only when in remission.
One infection leads to another; malaria infection enhanced Epstein-Barr virus pathogenicity.
Low FODMAP diet again shown to help with GI symptoms, this time with diarrhea in those receiving enteral nutrition diet formulas.
A recent paper suggests that GI disorders should be an initial treatment consideration for children with autism, in part due to their ability to disrupt sleep.
A recent study has suggested progesterone as a treatment for autoimmunity. This has some plausibility. We do see increased AI conditions in women and this might be because estrogen has an immuno-stimulatory effect (speaking loosely). Progesterone helps to balance the effects of estrogen and perhaps could help with autoimmunity.
CoQ10 supplementation shown to decrease fatigue in chronic fatigue syndrome patients.
Salivary testing might be able to detect sleep apnea.
Laugh a Little!
Lie in the grass or sit at the beach and read a good book.
