JTG #74 The Link Between Histamines, Rosacea & Acne With Holistic Nutrition Practitioner Luka Simons

In this episode of the Journey to glow podcast we talk to Holistic Nutritionist Luka Simons about the link between histamines and rosacea, acne and other skin “issues”.

Luka Symons is a Holistic Nutrition Practitioner for people who are wondering where their food + body groove has disappeared to.

Through her uplifting & informative workshops, talks, and one-on-one consults, she’s here to shake up your approach to food and your gorgeous self — while making it all feel like a walk in the park.

As a former radio host and child #3 of 4, she isn’t known for being quiet nor shy. When she’s not being all nutrition-y, you can find her daydreaming of driving her red scooter with a milk crate full of books on the back with her two favourites in tow (husband & daughter), on the hunt for the best cup of joe on the planet.

Luka works one-on-one with clients via private consultation and runs classes around her adopted hometown of Calgary. Check out both the live and online classes to see what might best suit you!

Luka is one-half of the mavens at Histamine Haven; she is also on staff as one of the instructors at The Light Cellar in Bowness, Calgary.

In this episode Holistic Nutrition Practitioner Luka Symons and Journey To Glow founder Caroline Frenette talk about: 

1. Your skin is NOT against you, she’s showing you what’s happening IN the body
2. The link between histamines and rosacea, acne and other skin “issues”
3. What is a low histamine diet
4. The SIBO + histamine aka BI-PHASIC diet
5. How histamines and SIBO may be the missing link in healing rosacea
6. How histamine can actually “trigger” skin “issues”
7. What are histamines and how they work
8. What are mast cells and how they influence inflammation in the body
9. The immune system, inflammation and rosacea
10. Foods to avoid if you have a histamine intolerance
11. Hidden ingredients that can trigger a histamine reaction and make your rosacea worse
