    In my opinion, so take it for what its worth, a low histamine diet. Its quite extensive, but easily followed, without much sacrifice. Just google "low histamine diet" and you will get a lot of information.

    Eat Bananas, drink water and coconut water...Research vitamin supplements and  herbal products before you continue to use them! Watch caffeine input.

    Best to consult a qualified nutritionist regarging what to eat and what to avoid.

    My experience is that I take adequate vitamin C and multivitamins. I do not avoid green vegetables completely. Generally I eat in moderation. And I avoid miss taking my wafarin. All is well so far.

    For me, ANY tea, coffee, coke etc is banned, I drink lemon, ginger, hibiscus tea now, dont really like it but must have something to dip my biscuit in ! I dont have to buy supermarket food (farm) so this helps a lot, even tho sometimes its monotonous - beans beans and more beans - - haaa haaa

    As far as I know grapefruit should be avoided when taking any heart related medication, I believe for the same reason as Ibruprofen and decongestants, it can alter the amounts of the medication your body absorbs.  I personally avoid eating too much sugar as I feel lousy after a sugar binge, I drink decaf tea/coffee and I limit it to only 1 or 2 a day. I don't drink any alcohol or fizzy drinks and I avoid artificial sweetner. I have found this has helped me a bit.  I also try not too overeat at anytime as my heart bangs away if i'm absolutely stuffed.  I have also heard very recently about the effects of vitamin K on people with heart problems, I don't eat huge amounts of brocolli etc but from now on when I do I will make sure it's not a large portion!  I find a healthy balance diet such as slimming world is a good one to follow.
