GI tract dysbiosis, immune activation
Dietary aspects of the optimal therapeutic approach can be counterintuitive. For example, published data has shown a low FODMAP diet can result in an 8-fold decrease in serum histamine. However, a low FODMAP diet may reduce seemingly healthy foods. Additionally, the impact of probiotics on histamine is often overcomplicated when attempting to use non-histamine-producing strains. This discounts the net effect a given probiotic may have on one’s histamine production. Speculatively, a probiotic that is pro-histamine but simultaneously able to decontaminate the small bowel of SIBO (also published) may result in a net anti-histamine effect.
While some of the science here is still preliminary, this talk will attempt to provide progressive, yet evidence-based recommendations for using diet, lifestyle, environment, probiotics, anti-bacterial treatment and OTC medications in the management of gut dysbiosis, immune activation
