Mast cells: everyone on the planet has them, some people’s tend to act up! Dr. Anne Maitland uses her allergy and immunology training to decode how and why mast cells might overreact.

Mast cells are very normal: they are responsible for reacting to stimuli that are irritating our immune system. They can cause itch, eye swelling, running noses and other reactions throughout the body… but when they overreact to all the many stimuli coming at the body at once? That can spell trouble.

Dr. Maitland provides a great overview of mast cell activation, why it may become disordered and what types of symptoms and treatments those patients should be on the lookout for after a diagnosis. She also describes the growing frequency of allergies and anaphylaxis in today’s world, and why exactly that may be.

This presentation was given at the November 2019 meeting at the Medical University of South Carolina l in Charleston, SC. (2019)

    Great presentation, and maybe I missed it, but why are immunizations not listed as possibly contributing to this horrible epidemic of chronic, disabling disorders discussed here? Vaccines have powerful chemical adjuvants (preservatives, surfactants, inflammatory enhancers, etc.) that are injected DIRECTLY into the human body. Not saying they are the only factor, but they certainly should not be ignored…. especially for genetically susceptible individuals.

    ? Coincidence that massive rise in mandated childhood vaccines coincides with the timeline of the rise in these disorders?

    I have been diagnosed with MCAS. My illness is extreme and well documented for over 40 years. My medical history is beyond bizarre. I’m looking for a test of medication that may help. As my face afire – God Bless

I could only wish to have such an empathetic doctor❤ your opening comment :: your first lesson was each and every one of you should be on the other side of the bed pan at least once :: was so empathetic and such a good idea to teach doctors. Thank you for being you.

    Yes! Finally someone addresses the fact that the antibiotics for so many months w Lyme disease causes more problems than it solves . After 5 months of doxycycline I developed full blown histamine intolerance and my life has never been the same . I also am homozygous for DAO , however I never knew until I had all the horrible symptoms arise after the Lyme protocol . I actually figured it out myself and later confirmed the gene mutation w a 23andme and the help of a functional medicine doctor . If I could go back I would have never done anything to treat chronic Lyme with antibiotics.

    Does anyone with tinnitus doubt natural herbs? I have seen the great importance of natural herbs in my life and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on drugs.. you can get a confirmation yourself by clicking on his Facebook link below https://www.facebook.com/Dr-Itua-Herbal-Clinic-100313388455998/ for solution..
