    Thank you for the helpful list Melanie! I was wondering if food sensitivity or environmental allergy are considered histamine issues. Are we only to have meat stock on intro and not allowed bone broth until full GAPS? Thank you!

      Hi Amy,

      Great question. There will always be a histamine component with leaky gut and food sensitivities. When you have foods you are sensitive to, they will produce an inflammatory response, which can be expressed as histamines, prostaglandins, cytokines, etc.

      Environmental allergies have a histamine component as well and that is why anti-histamines work to mitigate symptoms. I like to use Biotics Histoplex AB & homeopathic histamine helpers while working on healing the gut lining.

      Meat stock is what is generally used for at least the first 30 days of GAPS, and one of the primary reasons is that meat stock has less histamine than bone broth.

      Hope that helps!

      Melanie
