Listen to the audio below to hear 5 clients ask me why their weight loss has stalled and if allergies play a part. 

Can Allergies Stall Weight Loss?

Today I want to talk to you about Leptin, Ghrelin, Cortisol and other hormones that trigger weight gain, and the supplements you can use to help ease your histamine response. 


Fat Cells Have Their Own Feedback Loop

Adipose sites or fat cells have their very own hormone feedback loop which tells the brain to be hungry or to be full. Allergies disrupt this feedback loop.

When elevated levels of histamine begin to pool in the blood, the body and specifically the fat cells will secrete hormones that tell your brain to crave things that deliver sugar rapidly. Things like refined carbohydrates, sugars, and sweets.

This response happens because as histamine is elevated in the bloodstream it stimulates insulin resistance. Remember insulin is the hormone that carries sugar from the bloodstream into the cell to be metabolized for energy.

When insulin resistance happens, the sugar that is in the bloodstream can not penetrate the cell and never makes it to the site where the sugar is broken down and converted into energy. So the cell believes it is starving even though there is plenty of sugar in the bloodstream. Your brain says, "I can not starve," so it tells you to eat, especially in the afternoon and evening hours.

This is why it is so important to metabolize histamine efficiently. Things like methylated B vitamins, natural anti-histamines like quercetin, bio-flavonoids like Salicin and Larch. These are all things that will help your body metabolize histamine efficiently, not let it pool, not create insulin resistance, and not stimulate sugar cravings.
