I have been meaning to share some information about the worst advice I’ve ever heard about the autoimmune paleo diet that I think could really help you.

But first a little background.

After what seems like the ridiculously compulsory round of doctors, she eventually found a doctor who suggested she try the autoimmune paleo diet.

A month or so later I bumped into her at our local farmers market and she looked really amazing.

And it was not just anecdotal. Her thyroid anti-bodies had dropped by 90% in a single month on the autoimmune paleo diet.

Of course, I knew diet was that important, but even I was stunned. The results were indisputable. Or so I thought.

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).
