Simply Put, Mast Cell Activation Disorder is the Over Reaction of Mast Cells in the Body.
Mast cells are a part of the immune system. Mast cells are located in all of the organs, and the connective tissues in the body. When the mast cells sense stress, injury, toxins, or an infection, they release specific chemicals that trigger an immune response. This can be a good thing except when mast cells are upset or over-reactive, and they cause a storm in the body that feels like we are being attacked from the inside.
When an organ or area of the body is affected by mast cell activation, the mast cells tend to accumulate or build up in a specific area like the gastrointestinal tract, the respiratory system, the skin, or the cardiovascular system. This can produce adverse mast cell activation symptoms.
Another way these mast cells can cause havoc is by producing Mast Cell Activation Syndrome. This is the release of histamine, cytokines which make us feel terrible and under attack and reacting to everything we are in contact with. We can even feel like anything we eat, drink, or breathe is causing an attack.
Ways to support the healing of mast cell activation disorder may include adjustments to the daily diet. Discovering food allergies/intolerances can help reduce mast cell activation symptoms. Another way is to make sure to rule in or out an infection that the immune system is trying to warn you about. We also check for histamine levels and if need, we help teach you ways to lower histamine in your body. Checking for MTHFR deficiency and other vitamin deficiencies can also be helpful.
