Are persistent abdominal swelling, acid reflux and low BP signs of histaminosis?

Posted on Tue, 12 Apr 2016 in Thyroid Problem and Hormonal Problems
Question: After many years of being just not right, but never really ill and disappointing doctor visits, I found out that the most possible explanation for all my little symptoms are most likely Histaminosis. I have my remaining teeth removed beginning of next month and hope that many of my symptoms will disappear.
I have a swollen tummy since 1 year with burping, regurgitating and reflux
I have an allergic reaction every morning since 40 years with sneezing and feeling stuffed in the head
I had stomach problems since childhood and certain food allergies like to fruits and onions
My teeth were always bad and I often have abscesses
I had a hip replacement and was diagnosed with arthritis, but think I have a slipped disc in the lower spine and Sciatica
I feel often tired and have no energy and don't go out anymore. Had always the symptoms of a slow metabolism and low blood pressure, but blood tests never revealed anything abnormal
I want to know what is the best remedy for Histaminosis, or is there a chance that all my symptoms will disappear after I have my teeth extracted.
I don't take any chemical medication, only herbal remedies

Histaminosis (Histamine Intolerance) is characterized as the inability for the body to break down the histamine. This decreased ability to break down histamine may be related to a deficiency in an enzyme called diamine oxidase (DAO). It is difficult to treat.

Treatment can be done using N-Acetylcysteine NAC. Hard to comment about herbal medicine for this condition.

Going through the following links should help.

I'm afraid but Dental extraction will not resolve your problems.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
