This presentation shares how we lowered our young son's histamine burden. This was necessary to help his system calm down from having persistent and dangerous reactions, related to mast cell activation disorder. The strategies would potentially help anyone dealing with allergies, and many other histamine mediated disorders.

  • Type Location Function H 1 histamine receptor Found on smooth muscle , endothelium , and central nervous system tissue Causes, bronchoconstriction , bronchial smooth muscle contraction, vasodilation , separation of endothelial cells (responsible for hives ), and pain and itching due to insect stings; the primary receptors involved in allergic rhinitis symptoms and motion sickness ; sleep and appetite suppression. H 2 histamine receptor Located on parietal cells and vascular smooth muscle cells Primarily involved in vasodilation. Also stimulate gastric acid secretion H 3 histamine receptor Found on central nervous system and to a lesser extent peripheral nervous system tissue Decreased neurotransmitter release: histamine, acetylcholine, norepinephrine, serotonin H 4 histamine receptor Found primarily in the basophils and in the bone marrow. It is also found on thymus, small intestine, spleen, and colon. Plays a role in chemotaxis.

  • Lowering the Histamine BurdenMethods we used to lower our young son’s histamine burden,to reduce the frequency and intensity of dangerous and painful histamine mediated reactions. The Mastocytosis Society Annual Conference October 2012 Copyright Tiffany Blackden 2012 All Rights Reserved

  • Max’s Daily MCAD SymptomsHives, dermatographia, flushing, swelling, stomach aches, headaches, leg pain, itching, anaphylaxis from: Food (too many to name!) Friction Heat Cold Change in temp Animals Chemicals Synthetic Fabrics Skin Contact With Plants/Grass Etc…???

  • A few of his reactions: Really angry reaction from playing with a scratchy rope. This was after it was calm, we nearly went to the hospital, it covered a lot of his torso and most of his arm. Rolled around on synthetic rug…taken after the hives calmed down a bit.Blisters on both lower legs Copyright Tiffany Blackden 2012 All Rights Reservedafter consuming olive oil.
