Well, there I was half asleep at 4.30am but very conscious of how uncomfortable several places on my legs were because of mosquito bites.  

I've been plaqued with various allergies since I was a young girl.
Most things, if connected with food/toxins can be avoided but oooooh!!! mossies really get the knife and fork out on me!!!
Not only do I get the itching but also the swelling and mostly a blister which weeps/seals itself, until it finally heals but usually leaves a scar for ages.

I know that these things can be related to our genes, my daughter is troubled too.

Now, if I can work at repairing my adrenals etc etc, is there anything I can actively do to get my histamine levels into a 'normal' range, which would mean they wouldn't go into 'overdrive' when I'm bitten/stung!!!

For years, all I've been able to do is take antihistamine tablets and rub cream on the affected area.

I really would like to change this option.
Anybody out there got any ideas??

I primarily use stinging nettles to control histamine levels.

I also use to a lesser extent: quercetin, bromelain, Feverfew, pantothenic acid, and ascorbic acid

Raquel but I don't hold with the origins of homoeopathic remedies, so don't use them.
Thanks anyway.

Sort of Tomatilla, I was having problems finding a Vit C supp. that suits me, as I just can't take ascorbic acid. I've ordered one derived from rose hips. So, although I'm taking Adrenamin to help repair the adrenals, I have to wait for the other supp.

I didn't actually realise that Vit C can lower histamine levels, you learn something new everyday!!! Thanks.

how about freshly squeezed lemon juice while you wait for your vit C to arrive?

Homoeopathic remedies don't work with material parts of their origins, the substances have been diluted and only have their energetic parts ... so it can be used for all BTD , child, etc.... example: CHAMOMILE does't have chamomile herbs, only their energetic part  capability of activating the healing process...

Sorry Raquel, I didn't fully explain...by the 'origins' I was referring to the philosophy behind it. I know that the man consulted with the occult...so that's not for me.

Lola - I remember that was one of the first pieces of btd I first began with.
After the second morning...I reported on a thread that it didn't seem to suit me....nobody commented, so, I thought.....well, maybe it was just me and perhaps I shouldn't have told anyone??

Two days ago I tried again. After 30 minutes I was running to the toilet. Drank some yesterday, and all day my stomach was so uncomfortable - in the evening my husband commented about how much my breath smelt - I told him I was having probs with my stomach.
Interesting I've never suffered with breath problems since starting btd.
I think it's connected to the lemon juice

I was totally surprised by this info and didn't want to hijack this thread, so started a new thread on this subject.

Janet, How long have you been on the BTD? Could what happened still be some sort of detox going on at this stage of the process.

I know my system went through major changes the first 6 months after starting the BTD and then the second year more changes occured when I stopped eating grains for a while and my leaky gut problem improved. Could your digestive system still be changing and healing?

Works better for me than any alternatives that I have tried.

NAP offers both leaf  and root

I have not used the NAP products.

Currently I use both leaf and root in tea.

When having Histamine problems I take tablets of the leaf.
I vary the amount depending on severity of problem.
I try to keep it below 4000 mg a day.

I started taking the nettles on the recommendation of a herbalist.
I asked whether it was okay to take it on an onging basis and she said I could.

She had recommended a blend (Histablock) from Nature's Sunshine with:

Stinging Nettle Leaves (Urtica dioica)
Bioflavonoid (Quercetin dihydrate)
Fructus aurantia immaturi (Citrus aurantium)
Bromelain Fruit (Ananas comosus)

Her dose recommendation was 4 to 6 tablets a day.

I found that it was the nettles that made the difference for me.

Regarding the other onfo that you gave me re stinging nettles. You said that they were high in iron, this could cause me problems, as at my last B/T the level was 165 (range being 37 - 145).
I'm due for another B/T next week, results one month later - so I'll see if anything has altered since March.
I don't think it would be a good idea to see it keep climbing up!! Although I've only been told that it could cause me problems 'later in life'.
