HEADACHE and MIGRAINE due to lack of DAO(Diaminoxidase)
95% of migraines are caused by a lack in the body of DAO enzyme, which removes histamine wich cause of inflammation.
But there are natural treatments that gradually reduce the presence of histamine in the body, decrease the need
of DAO enzyme and make migraine pain disappear.
Let's see natural cures for headache or migraine by DAO lack and precautions for carrying out DAO test.
A weak activity of Diaminoxidase enzyme (DAO) makes body unable to fight histamine excess. It remains
active in the bowel and can cause headaches.
Excess of histamine, which is a neural transmitter, causes vessels modifications that cause inflammation and
can lead to migraine attack. Many migraine patients have deficiency in activity of DAO enzyme.
DAO activity is not always related to the concentration of enzyme itself. Analysis of its concentration in the
blood is not always useful for finding cause of migraine. DAO test evaluates activity of DAO enzyme in the blood
using immunoenzymatic technique. It's aimed to people who suffer from frequent headaches and/or migraines.
The increase in histamine in the circulation also involves mast cells. The decrease in their working prevents
the great presence in the mast cells of the histamine produced, as normally happens, thus allowing an increase
in the level of histamine in the bloodstream.
The discovery of a DAO enzyme reduction, as a triggering factor for migraine allows an effective preventive
treatment of the disease. The result is an improvement in patients quality of life. Natural cures and remedies
for DAO deficiency migraine are possible. They enhance activity of mast cells, thus eliminating the risk of
Recommendations for the DAO survey are as follows:
-Carry out the blood test in 24-72 hours following migraine crisis and be fasting for 8 hours.
-Temporarily stop taking drugs decreasing presence of DAO enzyme in the blood. Such drugs are anti-inflammatory,
antihistamines, antidepressants, diuretics, antibiotics, prokinetics (drugs used for gastroesophageal reflux),
It's not recommended to perform this test during pregnancy, because placenta produces DAO enzyme.
This, in fact, is one of the causes why migraine attacks decrease during pregnancy.
As therapy, it's recommended taking DAO enzymes before meals or diets with histamine-free foods. This is
it to increase the body's DAO content or reduce histamine taken in the diet. However, these measures don't solve
But natural cures for DAO lack migraine are possible with natural products like Vitis vinifera and Rhodiola
rosea. They have anti-free radical, anti-inflammatory, anti-aggregating action.
Then, there are other natural substances, like flavoproteins and coenzymes, which contribute effectively and
not harmful to restoration of mast cell metabolism. This produces reintegration of production and storage of neural
transmitters that cause the headache.
Last, but not least, studies found that 95% of people with headaches or migraines have more or less remarkable
deficiency of DAO. An equal percentage of people with several forms of headache, who use Biocephal, greatly benefit
from this natural supplement.
