🫐 Sunbutter and blueberry jelly oats, plus all the toppings is the coziest wake-up call. This weather calls for it!
🌱The toppings aren’t just delicious, but they also deliver all the goods: good fats and seeds to support good hormone health. These key nutrients are readily absorbed through the gut, helping promote a healthy cycle. This is especially important for those with histamine intolerance/estrogen dominance. #foodismedicine
**Mast cells have receptors for estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen binds to the mast cell receptor, causing histamine release while down-regulating DAO activity. This means histamine isn’t broken down. Histamine also binds to ovarian cell histamine receptors, causing them to make more estrogen. And so the dysfunction continues.**

**GF/DF/LOW-HISTAMINE (I followed mastcell360 low histamine foods list very strictly initially, then added some foods from the SIGHI list as I began to tolerate more foods, all under the care of a dietitian. A low histamine diet is restrictive and not meant to be followed long-term, as nutrient deficiencies may develop.)**
