Someone posted about this on another GERD forum. Some of you may find it interesting.
HIT – Histamine Intolerance – is a condition that affects many people but remains largely undiagnosed. The symptoms of histamine intolerance (HIT) are caused by the inability of the body to break down histamine sufficiently. These symptoms can appear very like an allergy and can cause stomach and intestinal complaints, migraine, tiredness and skin problems, to name but a few. This is in most cases because of the reduced activity or low presence of an enzyme called diamine oxidase (DAO), which is mainly responsible for breaking down histamine and other biogenic amines ingested through food. Foods that are known culprits include: red wine, ready meals, cured meats, mature cheeses, tomatoes and aubergines. It can make people’s lives a total misery. But it CAN be brought under control with the RIGHT DIAGNOSIS and the RIGHT DIET. This book is a guide to how to achieve both. It helps both health professionals and patients gain insight.

Hi Erica

Bruce posted a lot of information on this and allergy and intolerance. He mentioned a supplement that reduces dietary histamine. It's very expensive unfortunately. I sent off for a free sample but it burst in the post cry

Here's the thread that contains Bruce's thoughts on histamine intolerance:
