A pain doctor thinks I have mast cell and wanted me to take zantac, clemastine, and quercetin twice a day. I have GI issues so I don't want to take the zantac or clemastine. I was wondering if anyone knows how to treat mast cell without those medications. I'm preferably looking for natural supplements. Nothing that reduces stomach acid. Thanks

I am currently dealing with some mast cell issues
The quercetin is natural ... you can find it at a vitamin or herbal store , it’s usually 500mg
Something else I take with breakfast and dinner is called “ histamine scavenger “ check with a holistic doctor to get it ... it has a bunch of natural herbs in it as well
I would also recommend looking into a low histamine diet ... there are a surprising amount of foods that could be making you feel worse

You can take betaine with meals to make up for the stomach acid reducer, i do. My doc has me on an H1 blocker, H2 blocker and Singulair. Mast cell stabalizing herbs are quercetin, high dose vitamin C, nettle, ginger and Stephen Buhner says butterbur

Follow a low histamine diet- this is different for everyone but the major factors are the same regarding meat and fermented foods. Look up the SIGHI histamine list.

I take Quercetin, Nettles, bromelain, and vitamin C. I have been able to stop taking Pepcid for reflux since then. I don’t have widespread itching unless I eat a new food that I obviously shouldn’t. It hasn’t helped my seasonal allergies, though.
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
