For me, it was the chemical adulterants in food (preservatives, dyes, BPA, etc) that caused my amine allergy as the symptom. You’re the first person I’ve talked to so far that has come to the same conclusion!

Can you tell us more about your experience?

I sympathize with anyone having amine reactions BUT, please know that it’s not the amines in food that is the original CAUSE of this. You have to be sensitized first by other, probably synthetic, amines. For me it’s definitely the synthetics, detergents, in unleaded gasoline.
It is often chemicals in the work place that set it off. If you know what started it off, avoid it.

I started with ascorbic acid (bought at super supplements), and once my body was completely off the processed foods and chemicals (about 2 years) , added lemons and other beneficial high amine foods back in.

His migraine is fading now – comes in fits and starts it seems.
Just kept his environment cool, dark and quiet (anyone would think we are talking about a reptile if they didn’t know better!!)
I will definitely update you if I figure out anything new about pepper….

By: myspork Fri, 26 Jul 2013 05:27:59 +0000 /?p=2165#comment-9167 Oh – also – most peppers are nightshades, which is the high amine family. Black pepper and sichuan pepper come from a different plant entirely.

By: myspork Fri, 26 Jul 2013 05:26:02 +0000 /?p=2165#comment-9166 Oh man… I’m so sorry, that’s no fun at all. Please give him my well wishes and I will be sure to send positive energy his way. Poor dear. These allergies just plain suck.

From everything I’ve read so far, yes, they are low amine. However, many of the sources conflict on items, or simply don’t have an entry on them at all. It might be that they’re not organic, or that they’re irradiated. Or that they are, indeed, high in amines and my sources were not correct. If you think he is having a reaction to it, please don’t use it, and test again with organic, non-irradiated items (if you even want to) when you know that there is nothing else that could be causing a reaction.

And should you find out that it is, please let me know and I will update my sheet. Thank you, and I wish you both the best!

I just sucked on a raw piece of ginger for my trying-to-kill-me stomach cramps… It’s a heady beast of a spice, but also soothes the stomach. Perhaps some light ginger tea to help ease his stomach?

Best wishes and good health,
