  1. I tried activated Quercetin which inlcuded bromelain, vit c and magnesium citrate. It seems to increase the symptoms somehow. I was thinking possibly because Quercetin can increase Dopamine which he seems to be high in based on symptoms (not positive though). Right now I've been using methionine which seems to be helping. He has tested pretty low normal for this a year ago so I feel he's got a little room to handle it. He's also very low normal homocysteine (has been below normal in the past). Methionine can increase homocysteine for its something to watch. However, methionine can decrease blood histamine and raise serotonin. I do need to run out and get histamine degrading probiotics, thanks for the reminder. These are the 3 I've seen : Probiotics B infantis, B longum, L plantarum. I will check into Lactobacillus as well. Thanks! Also, sometimes I've wondered if vitamin c (which is supposed to breakdown histamine) hypes him up. Have you ever seen this?
  2. I just wanted to share what we've discovered with our 8yr old son. My son has had these type symptom during allergy season but not as intense as this year. WELL this year we started giving him Allergy Immunotherapy drops and his symptoms increased majorly. I've referred to it as OCD but honestly its a mixed bag of OCD, vocal tics, stimming/sensory stimulation. I connected the dots and had his histamine tested. Mind you, he had barely any noticeable symptoms. Occasional sneezing or cough. His histamine levels were 4x the high normal. Histamine is actually a neurotransmitter and can cause neurological symptoms. Do some research on Histadelia kids. Describes my son to a T. Work with a Functional MD or ND who understands the methylation cycle and other contributing SNPs. I would suggest getting a Blood Histamine test. We just had one for our son by Dunwoody labs. It included histamine, DAO and Zonulin (zonulin was optimal so not a Leaky Gut problem). We ran genes through 23andme a couple years ago which is helpful information (still requires research, trial and error). Dr. Amy Yasko (google her name) has an online forum and free online books which are very helpful regarding gene errors and the methylation cycle. If our histamines are too high there are some reasons behind that which can be supported by understanding your methylation cycle. You can read up on Histamines and how they effect us. Some people have issues because of low histamines and others because too high. Here are two good links. http://www.joanmathewslarson.com/HRC_2006/Depression_06/D_roller_coaster.htm http://www.drkaslow.com/html/histadelia.html
