Anybody who suffers from allergies (and particularly asthma or COPD related respiratory problems) should investigate the role that fluoride may be playing in their allergic reactions. There is enough empirical evidence to suggest that intolerance to fluoride in tap water and (equally importantly toothpaste and mouthwash) may trigger histamine release from the body and from food with high histamine content. It is important when trying this regime to not just abstain from drinking tap water (ie drink bottled water instead and use it for cleaning teeth and boiling for beverages etc) but also to check out those foods which are high in histamine (and there are a lot including those which would appear to be very healthy!). I was ill with wheezing and constant generation of mucous in the lungs(particularly at night when lying down) for 6 months and it was only after banning fluoride intake completely that I suddenly noticed a dramatic improvement. This was after banning yeast/dairy products and high-histamine foods (all of which alleviated the problem but did not get to the root cause) and undergoing countless test/medication from doctors.

Try it out, it really does seem to work!

Apart from banning all high-histamine foods, you will also need to look carefully at alternative toothpastes (and probably give up using mouthwash).

I would be grateful for people's advice about the impact of fluoride toothpaste on histamine sensitivity. My son, who has severe disabilities has recently been diagnosed with histamine intolerance and we have introduced a low histamine diet plus medication including nalcrom (Sodium cromoglicate) 4 x day and giving the supplement Daosin. He cannot tell us how he feels so we can only go by his bowels which have previously been a nightmare (I will spare the details), itching his neck, looking and acting unwell, being exhausted, and more. He swallows toothpaste so I have been doing some reading and it seems that fluoride in the system can provoke histamine release so I am wondering about switching to a low fluoride toothpaste but am not sure which one to use, and am concerned about promising his teeth. I do not tend to use bottled water but use filtered tap water so now I am wondering about that as well. Anyone with experience who can advise would be most appreciated.

Did you retake the tests? Can you share some low or non-histamine foods?
