In this day and age, it’s easy to become burdened by the busyness of life. We feel that we have to be more responsible and serious to do well in life, as we must think about the more serious things – a job, bills, and other’s perceptions of our life. We feel that becoming an adult, means embracing society’s mentality of “growing up.”
Somewhere along our journey from our childhood years, to the years that deemed us as an adult, we lose some traits to conform to this mentality. These are traits that could be very valuable as an adult. We think that children need to learn from us, and our experiences, failing to realise how much we can learn from them. Their childlike nature is one of these things.
As a child, all that seems to matter is having fun and enjoying life. There is no worry about to future, but only living in, and enjoying the present. Then our environment begins to alter, we go through experiences which begin to alter our perception and those childlike traits begin to drop away.
Start considering your mentality. There are ways that you can embed these childlike traits back into your life and learn to love and enjoy your life like a child does.
Step out of the adult mindset and embrace those childlike traits that made you enjoy life so much as a kid. It’s time to enjoy life and be a kid again.
Could your headaches and migraines be associated to the foods that you are eating? Do you experience a runny or itchy nose after eating certain foods? Perhaps your cheeks flush red after you drink alcohol. If any of these symptoms sound familiar, you may have an intolerance to histamine
Histamine is a chemical within the body that is responsible for many major functions including, the process of communicating messages to the brain, assisting the digestion process through the release of stomach acids, and assists immune response after am injury or allergic reaction occurs. When levels of histamine within the body are excessively high, these functions can be implicated.
The Role of Diet:
Levels of Histamine could be high due to the enzyme (DAO) responsible for breaking down this chemical, being prevented by excessive amounts of histamine-rich foods. If the body is unable to break down histamine from foods consumed, it can enter the bloodstream, causing an immune response.
Below, there is a list of some high and low histamine foods:
High Histamine Foods:
Histamine Lowering Foods
Some symptoms that may suggest an intolerance to histamine are:
Some ways in which you can treat a histamine intolerance include, a change in diet to foods that are low in histamine, 7-8 hours of sleep a night, daily exercise, and relaxation techniques, including breathing exercises and meditation. These strategies will all assist in promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Obviously, if someone is experiencing a severe allergic reaction that is life threatening, call 000 as quickly as possible.
People can experience an allergic reaction when their immune system responds to something in the environment, usually a foreign body that can’t be absorbed or processed by the individual. How people react and the specific source of their allergies, is a highly individualised event that varies from person to person.
Sharing the same genetic code, as for example siblings do, is no guarantee that one or both will suffer from the same allergic reaction.
Some of the most common allergens are found in
We are hearing more frequently about children being allergic to packaged foods. Peanut butter, for example, a seemingly innocent sandwich spread, is now widely recognised as a risk factor and is banned from lunchboxes across Australia schools as a potential hazard.
For someone who experiences a severe reaction to a common item such as peanut butter, it can be necessary to carry an EpiPen at all times, just in case the airways close over due to unforeseen contact. Without the life-saving EpiPen there is a real risk of not being able to breathe.
Some of the more general signs of allergic reactions are:
A simple way to improve the immune system is to eat a wide variety of whole foods as a regular part of your diet. Real food and plenty of it helps the body to digest a maximum amount of nutrients, which in turn protect us from disease and inflammation. Our gut microbiome is designed to work with us to utilise our waste products as we extract the goodness from our food.
Another simple strategy we can use is to ensure that the body is well hydrated. When we drink plenty of water, toxins and allergens get flushed from our cells. The body needs water to be able to keep all the fluids circulating, including the lymphatic system which acts to dispose of dead cells, antibodies and toxins.
BodyTalk has an effective treatment with the Body Chemistry technique. By energetically aligning the reactive substance with the body, it’s possible to rebalance the activity of the immune system to reduce the reaction. By relaxing the inflammatory responses, the body remains calm and able to function at its optimal peak.
A number of other techniques in the BodyTalk system can be useful to improve your immune system so it can reduce the potential reaction to foods, etc. and these rely on the individual priorities for the person seeking relief.

Mind and body techniques combine breathing exercises with mindfulness and meditation. When we are in a state of stress, we start to shallow-breathe. Using mindfulness can help to restore the balance by training the mind to pay attention. Combined with regular meditation, these techniques can address pain through awareness and relaxation.
