As an 18-year-old I suffered terribly from urticaria in the form of horribly itchy hives when ever I overheated, whether it be through exercise or through embarrassment or any other reason I got hot. This continued for a few years and then reared its ugly head again about 30 years later, and I’ve been suffering ever since.
I’m now 56. Four weeks ago I decided to start intermittent fasting to lose a few pounds, which meant cutting out soy milk coffees, instead drinking black. I’ve actually gone off soy milk coffees since as I prefer the taste of black.
I normally take Zyrtec every day, as I get hives every day. It dawned on me that my hives have suddenly stopped in the last few weeks, and I’ve been wracking my brain to think why and it can only be the soy milk. It isn’t listed as a ‘high histamine food,’ but I’m elated! I’ve been doing 30 minute stepper workouts without the slightest rash!! Have a look at what you’re eating. Maybe it’s your diet.
