HEADACHE and MIGRAINE by DAO (Diaminoxidase) Deficiency

A weak activity of Diaminoxidase enzyme (DAO) makes body unable to fight

histamine excess. It remains active in intestine and can cause headaches. Let's see

natural cures for headache or migraine by DAO deficiency and precautions for

carrying out DAO test.

 

 

WHAT are the CAUSES of DAO DEFICIENCY HEADACHE

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. Their malfunction

prevents the accumulation within them of the histamine produced (as normally happens)

and thus allows an increase in the circulating level of histamine in the blood.The finding of

a reduction in the DAO enzyme, 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 headache onset.

 

Recommendations for the DAO survey are as follows: carry out the exam 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-inflammatoryantihistamines, antidepressantsdiuretics, antibiotics,

 prokinetics (drugs used for gastroesophageal reflux), mucolytics, neuroleptics.

 

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.

 

 

HOW DAO DEFICIENCY HEADACHE is CURED in the TRADITIONAL way

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 problem.

 

 

WHICH NATURAL TREATMENTS for DAO DEFICIENCY HEADACHE

But natural cures for DAO deficiency 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

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.
