Mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) is a condition characterized by the abnormal and excessive release of mast cell mediators, which are substances involved in the body's immune response. Mast cells are a type of white blood cell found in various tissues throughout the body, including the skin, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal system. In MCAS, these mast cells release a wide range of mediators, such as histamine and cytokines, even when there is no apparent threat or trigger.

Dr Micah Yu’s Story
How I Managed My Conditions

I woke up one day with severe joint pain and was diagnosed with gout. However, my joint pain transformed over the years and I was eventually diagnosed with spondyloarthritis as well. Because of my own diseases, I decided to go into a career of Rheumatology to help patients going through similar problems that I have. From one joint to multiple joints, I thought I was going to be disabled by my 30s.

After going through multiple trial and errors, I used food as medicine and found how powerful plants were in my healing journey. Because of my fight with these autoimmune diseases, I knew I had to send a message to the world that there is hope to fight these painful diseases.
