Today I am releasing my new ebook Nourished : Over 30 Delicious Low Histamine Soups which is available for download on all major book selling platforms.

Folate is a critical nutrient for protecting DNA and in homocysteine methylation. Yet folate is very fickle.
If you have an MTHFR mutation, in the presence of oxidative stress, then folate can become unstable and wreak havoc.
However, at least three small human studies, have shown that vitamin C acts to stabilise folate. Not only that but it helps to absorb it even with a fickle C667T MTHFR polymorphism.
This blog post outlines a list of bio-individual histamine inhibitors. It is a companion post for my previous post on the bio-individual triggers of histamine intolerance.
Histamines are a natural chemical in plants, animals, and humans. The body needs histamines to perform critical functions.
The body was designed to be in a state of homeostasis so that the supply of histamine meets the body’s metabolic needs.
Excessive amounts of histamine are normally de-activated by diamine oxidase (DAO), histamine methyl transferase (HNMT), and monoamine oxidase (MAO).
Histamine intolerance is often misperceived as a diagnosis with a one-dimensional solution aimed at lowering dietary histamines.
I believe that this one-dimensional focus is misconceived. At best this leaves someone who is histamine intolerant managing symptoms. At worst it leaves them ignoring he main source of histamine intolerance.
