Impaired break-down of phenolic compounds has been correlated with a number of degenerative diseases including delayed food sensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivities. Phenol sensitivity is strongly associated with many foos intolerances including man-made food additives – colors, flavors, preservatives, sweeteners. There appears to be a strong genetic predisposition to this problem.
Histamine and tyramine are biogenic amines. Histamine promotes pain in general. Tyramine is a recognized trigger for headaches and some research indicates it may play a role in generalized pain. Both have been implicated in anxiety and insomnia.
Prostaglandins are known to cause inflammation and pain. Non-steroidal drugs – aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc. – block production of the main pro-inflamatory prostaglandins. The problem with these drugs though is that their action isn’t perfect and they commonly cause other problems if they are used regularly – the stomach problems from aspirin is an example here.
Using Vinami for Chronic Inflammation and Pain
