I’m trying to avoid taking Xolair and I’ve recently found a few things that have helped me a lot. I’ve gone from taking approximately 25 pills a day (prednisone, ranitidine, and a variety of rx and otc antihistamines) to just one antihistamine and two ranitidine a day. I have also been able to enjoy 3 consecutive days hive free! My hive free streak broke when I failed to adhere to the following:
1.) juice fresh ginger root and turmeric root and have a shot glass of it every morning.
2.) juice fresh, organic low histamine veggies and fruit and enjoy a few 8oz glasses of it per day. I like to make a batch with dark leafy greens+apples and a batch with beets+carrots+apples.
3.) avoid gluten, dairy, and soy.
I was so happy being hive free for a few days that I got sloppy. I skipped my ginger/turmeric shot, got lazy with my juice and made a cheesy chicken dish for lunch. By the end of the day I had hives all over my face, arms, and back. I don’t know if it was a coincidence but I’m going to get back on track and see what happens.
As for you, maybe it’s worth a try? I sure hope you find something that helps!
Karen Burns Lol. I do the same thing! I still get hives, but I’m better.
Shari Brady I’m trying to stick with low-histamine foods to see if it will help. I’ve added ginger root and numeric root to my shopping list. Thanks so much!

Laurie A Weber Are you only juicing all your meals ?
Heidi Dawn No, I eat organic whole foods whenever I’m hungry. Usually 1 or 2 solid food meals a day and 3-4 juices a day.
