WHO I AM AND HOW I CAN HELP YOU…
Hi, I’m Joanne Kennedy. I’m a Naturopath in Sydney, Australia specialising in MTHFR, methylation and histamine intolerance. Treating both methylation and histamine intolerance means I’m also a specialist in gut issues (SIBO, large bowel dysbiosis, candida, oxalates) and women’s hormonal issues (PMS, PMDD, irregular periods, heavy periods, PCOS, endometriosis, perimenopause and menopause). These conditions can cause methylation issues and histamine intolerance.
When I first started as a Naturopath 7 years ago, I was specialising in MTHFR & methylation. Since methylation breaks down histamine, this is when I first became exposed to the negative impact too much histamine can have on the body.
I quickly realised that if you are going to work with methylation, you need to know all about histamine. How it’s made in the body; how it’s broken down in the body; what causes people to have high histamine; and what are the best treatment options for these patients.
Over the past 7 years, I’ve treated hundreds of patients with histamine intolerance and have done countless hours of research on histamine. I’ve also done further training on the main drivers of histamine intolerance including SIBO, oxalates, women’s hormones, and methylation pathway issues.
I currently run a successful clinical practice in Sydney and see patients online globally. I also train other naturopaths and clinical nutritionists how to detect histamine intolerance in their patients and the treatment protocols I have used to successfully treat my own patients.
I’m delighted to say that I have collated the knowledge I’ve gained from clinical experience as well as research on this complicated topic into easy to read and comprehend E-products.
JUST SOME OF MY PRODUCTS (VIEW THEM ALL BELOW)…
I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH…
From seeing hundreds of patients with histamine intolerance over the past 7 years, I truly understand how debilitating the symptoms can be for many of you.
Migraines, insomnia, anxiety, vertigo, heart palpitations, chronic skin issues, chronic gut issues and terrible premenstrual syndrome are the common histamine symptoms I see in my patients every day.
I also understand that many of you have spent years and thousands of dollars on doctor’s appointments that have left you with no answers.
This is not only frustrating and expensive but also a very scary experience.
Not being able to get answers and feeling lost and almost giving up hope is what many of my patients tell me about their journey.
People come to me after spending many hours searching the internet for answers and finally realising their seemingly unrelated symptoms are due to histamine.
They will often realise that when they eat high histamine foods such as strawberries, tomato, avocado, or fermented foods that their symptoms flare.
Many of these foods are very healthy, so people are confused as to why they can’t tolerate them.
I also see a lot of patients who have been told by a practitioner they have histamine intolerance and all they need to do is remove high histamine foods from their diet for a set amount of time.
Doing this may give you some relief from your symptoms whilst you adhere to a low histamine diet, but as soon as you eat high histamine foods again, your symptoms flare.
This is a very frustrating experience. You go to all the effort to remove high histamine foods, you feel better for some time, and are hopeful you have healed.
You then reintroduce high histamine foods, only to find you have another histamine flare-up.
This cycle can go on for years for some people. If this is happening to you, it’s because you are not addressing the root cause of the build-up of histamine in your body and why you are unable to break it down.
Many women will also piece together the link between hormonal changes and their symptoms.
They start to notice their migraines occur at ovulation or before their period. They may also experience dizziness or vertigo at these times.
Women who are in the perimenopausal years (commonly 40-50), suddenly develop headaches or migraines for the first time.
They may also develop itchy skin or hives. Any pre-existing gut issues such as reflux may also start to get worse.
Women mention these symptoms to their doctor but are simply told ‘it’s part of being a woman’ or ‘this is normal for your age’.
What they are not being told is that these symptoms are due to histamine and its impact on oestrogen. They are not being told, as doctors simply don’t know.
There is a common misconception, that if you have the MTHFR gene mutation, you absolutely must take methylfolate and methyB12, and if you do this, you fix a range of health conditions.
This is not the case.
Many people come to me after taking methylated nutrients including methylfolate, methylB12 or SAMe which have made them anxious, depressed, or given them a terrible migraine or insomnia. I also see them making many skin issues worse.
Often these symptoms are due to the methylated nutrients breaking down histamine.
In these cases, the underlying causes of histamine intolerance are not being addressed.
What is important to understand, is that histamine is a symptom of an underlying condition.
To properly address and heal from histamine intolerance you, need to identify and treat all of your underlying causes.
