As I also have mass cell activation and a histamine intolerance, I have symptoms after drinking red wine, champagne, (which I LOVE)
or gluten-free beer and too many high histamine foods like that. I also cannot tolerate MSG, additives, nitrates and various chemicals in foods (and damn it because I LOVE bacon, salami, aged cheeses, marinated olives, etc...) sigh. ah well.
But I can drink plain old vodka, tequila or any alcohol besides the "no-no" ones.... so..... Yaay!.
I always focus on the "I can haves".
