    This is a video with Dr. Jill Carnahan about MCAS. She has overcome breast cancer, Crohn's disease and mold illness. She is a practicing Functional Medicine Doctor in Louisville, Colorado and is in fantastic health now!

    She talks about symptoms, triggers, testing and treatments- (over the counter drugs, prescription drugs and natural treatments). I don't have MCAS, but I do have histamine issues though and found this very informative and could relate to a lot of what she was saying.

    Key Takeaways
    • What are mast cells and what do they do?
    • What does a mast cell produce when over-activated?
    • What are the symptoms of MCAS?
    • What triggers overactivation of mast cells?
    • What is the role of environmental toxins and MCAS?
    • Is there a connection between MCAS and POTS?
    • What role do food reactions and leaky gut play?
    • What is the link between MCAS and CIRS?
    • How is MCAS treated?
    • Are some probiotics bad for people with MCAS?
    • What mind-body tools may be helpful with MCAS?
