Mast Cell problems

Mast cells are one type of cell that works as part of the immune system.  Mast Cells degranulate or open up and spill their granules.  These I think then are instrumental in raising histamine and otherwise responding to infections.  Bottom line is greater inflammation.  One way to reduce inflammation is through the use of Luteolin .  It has been shown to reduce inflammation and be neuroprotective.

So of course how do you get Luteolin.  “Luteolin is most often found in leaves, but it is also seen in celery, thyme, dandelion, rinds, barks, clover blossom, and ragweed pollen”.  Interesting that ragweed pollen is exactly the thing that often sends one into an allergic reaction some through mast cells .  I love to juice celery, but not sure what the ratio to product would be in a juice.  Probably the most  concentrated way of getting Luteolin would be through Thyme essential oil.  Wikipedia also says that “Dietary sources include celery, green pepper, thyme, perilla, chamomiletea, carrots, olive oil, peppermint, rosemary, navel oranges, and oregano“.

Now thyme, rosemary, peppermint and oregano are some of the oils that are used in the raindrop technique along the spine.  The others also underlined are also available through Young Living.   Although I give raindrop to people, this makes me think I need to get one myself!
