Very good book about Histamine Intolerance (HIT) and how to live with it
on June 4, 2011
The author is not only a journalist who writes for the food-intolerance-network, but also a patient who suffers from histamine intolerance and intestinal fructose intolerance (fructose malabsorbtion). Histamine Intolerance is not yet known very well in the States, so your doctor might not know how to deal with it! In Europe HIT is alread well known.
Over the course of 21 chapters, Genny Masterman describes her personal journey from the diagnosis through to her hard daily life. How do I shop for food, what do I have to watch out for when I go out to eat? How do I store my food? Many facts and well-researched information about HIT make this book a really recommended read.
The author has also put together some recipes. These are suitable for people with histamine intolerance and mostly also for those with fructose intolerance. The recipes have been tested personally by the author over a period of years, so they should work quite well.
