The histamine intolerance link and how this paleo girl went vegetarian — and back again — dysregulation demands it

When we’re healing our needs are a moving target. Healing is not static! We need to respond to our body and be willing to change up what is helping at all times. This is a good thing. It is the opposite of taking a drug for the rest of our lives for maintenance. It means our body is alive and changing. Getting in sync with it’s language to come to understand it takes time and what is needed changes all the time. (that might include pharmaceuticals for some folks at least some of the time. We are all endlessly variant and our needs, based on our history, are all going to be different. Practicing love for whatever our bodies need right now is also difficult and highly desirable. We can only come to ourselves right now in this moment…with whatever chaos or lack of chaos we might be in the midst of.

I found the below article getting traffic again lately about my dietary adventures…it’s sometimes good to read old stuff and see how things have changed and/or remained the same. Sometimes I’ve forgotten my own insights…or not thought about them for a long time and they are again helpful. my dietary adventures have since gone through many other permutations yet the foundational insights seem to continue to be useful. (that means the *details* are now different and not exactly the same as what is explained in this post)
