How To Treat Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

August 27, 2019


Hi there. Thanks for coming back. It’s Eric Bakker, the naturopath. We’re going to talk now about some treatment
for mast cell activation syndrome. What are some of the best treatment solutions. We’ve just spoke about diet. And if you’re unsure, check out the diet video
I did and click on some of the links under there to look at some of the low-histamine
diets that you may want to follow. If you’ve got quite a powerful response and
you really believe it’s histamine, you may want to look further at salicylate sensitivity
and oxalate sensitivity. You could have a little bit of both of those
as well. Right? So let’s look at now some of the best things
you can take if you’ve got this problem. Well, nothing beats doing the diet, so you
really want to make sure you’re following the correct diet first. So if you haven’t seen the diet video, go
back and look at that before you engage in the proper treatment now alright. So, one of the first things I’d recommend
would be vitamin C. So, you can take vitamin C in different forms. You can take it in an ester form. You can take it in a buffered form, you know,
along with calcium and magnesium ascorbates, for example. You can take it in ascorbic acid form. There are many types. I prefer the buffered form. Ester C is quite okay as well. So, you want to take anywhere between 3,000
to 6,000 milligrams per day as a trial, to see. Because this is a very good antihistamine
in its own right. Bioflavonoids are also very good, but you’ll
need to take larger amounts of these. Quite large amounts. 800 milligrams, 1,000 milligrams, 2,000 milligrams
per day, for example, of bioflavonoids. These are vitamin C-like compounds that have
an effect on stabilizing the mast cell, to stop it degranulating too quick. So, if you’re going to use a bioflavonoid,
use quercetin. Quercetin. Q-U-E-R-C-E-T-I-N. Quercetin is a very good flavonoid, and it’s
often found in plants along with vitamin C. So it helps to stabilize the activity of vitamin
C. Basically, it just powers vitamin C up. But it’s very good for allergies, quercetin. So I’d recommend you take some quercetin and
ascorbic acid or vitamin C powder. You know just to see whatever you want, whatever
you want. Take fair or reasonable amounts. You want to take minimum 1,000 milligrams
of quercetin a day, and as I mentioned, several thousand milligrams of vitamin C per day. Vitamin B6, or pyridoxal-5-phosphate. B6 is very, very good. B6 has many different actions on the body. Hormonal actions, musculoskeletal actions. An incredible amount. It’s one of the most powerful B vitamins that
you can use, in terms of the immune response. It works especially well with zinc and magnesium. So if you take a multivitamin, for example,
make sure there’s B6 in it. Omega-3 fatty acids. Very powerful anti-inflammatory effect, by
reducing the effect of cytokines. So again, even if the muscles do produce and
open up, you know, degranulate and release these chemicals, if there’s plenty of omega-3
in the body. It’s going to help downplay the inflammation
that’s provoked by these chemicals. So omega-3 may be one of the most important
supplements to take with this particular condition. I’d recommend you take 3,000 milligrams per
day, or one capsule with breakfast, one with lunch, one with dinner. Vitamin C and omega-3 are fantastic together,
and they’ll work very well together. You can also look at other supplements like
alpha lipoic acid, N-acetylcysteine, you know, B12. There’s a whole raft of things. But the ones I mentioned are particularly
effective, low cost, easily available, and work quite well. Ascorbic acid, quercetin, B6, omega-3, fish
oil. These are ones I recommend. I also recommend you take a digestive enzyme. Now, not wanting to blow my own trumpet, I’d
like you to check out CanXida Restore, the one with the green label, okay? Now, the reason why I like it for this condition,
I’ll just grab the container, the reason I like it for this condition is because you’re
not doubling up. You’ve got digestive enzymes in it, and you’ve
got probiotics. And you’ve got the strains which I really
like to see in the digestive system when there’s poor immune function. So CanXida Restore may work quite well. So you’d only take one capsule with breakfast,
and you would take one capsule with your evening meal, which should be sufficient. The CanXida Rebuild, the multivitamin that
I’ve created, that contains plenty of nutrition in there to support your immune system. There’s a bit of vitamin C in there, there’s
a bit of B6 in there. But you’ll need to probably take omega-3 fatty
acids. And you’ll probably need to take more ascorbic
acid. But the multi, that multi’s good because you’ve
got all the small trace elements that you really need to get a very good, powerful immune
response. So, a multivitamin each day, fish oil, some
vitamin C. These are all going to go in your favor, as supplements. What else can we talk about? I think that’s about it for this video. Yeah. And remember, the supplements are of no use
unless you do a low-histamine diet. So make sure you follow the low-histamine
diet, take some supplements, take them regularly. Try that for a good several months to see
how you feel. You should notice a reduction in symptoms,
if this really is your thing, if this condition is your thing. Thanks for tuning in.
