The Lab Test For Histamine Intolerance

November 3, 2015  |  Blog, Histamine Intolerance  |  13 Comments

One of my current frustrations is that 23andMe™, and online report readers, are used to self-diagnose rather than get the lab test for histamine intolerance.

Here is a report from a popular online 23andMe™ report reader of the “DAO” snps from one of my clients.

You could be forgiven for thinking that…

MTHFR? Vitamin C Can Boost Your Folate by 50%

August 4, 2015  |  Blog, Histamine Intolerance  |  18 Comments

Do you have mutations of MTHFR? Vitamin C can boost your folate by 50%.

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.

A Bio-Individual List of Histamine Inhibitors

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).

CYP450 Enzymes: A Complete List of the Most Potent Inhibiting and Inducing Foods and Bioactives

I have been wanting to write this post for some time about CYP450 inhibitors: a complete list of the most potent inhibiting and inducing foods and bio-actives for some time. This information has made one of the biggest difference to my health and wellbeing and continues to do so.

It has become abundantly clear to me that the trigger of my mast cell activation was CYP450 mutations and prescription medication. I am also not alone as around 10% of the population have a similar mutation.
