    Default Diamine Oxidase Protein for food allergies

    I've read a few studies about a product called Histame that contains the active ingredient Diamine Oxidase Protein Concentrate. It's supposed to degrade histamine. It's kind of expensive though, so what I'm wondering is how much different would this be to a mast cell stabilizer? Is this worth the investment? Any anecdotals?

    in theory that sounds good. But I would bring up the question of how much of this stuff (if it is not fake, anyway) is getting into your brain, where the local absence of the DAO is causing your problems

    What are some better options of increasing DAO?

    I guess there's only one way to find out if it works. I just ordered some Histame, Quercetin, Vitamin C, Ketotifen mast-cell stabilizer eye drops, and I'll report back in a month. I'll also be taking these with Mirtazapine (another antihistamine), digestive enzymes, and probiotics.

    I just love those kitchen sink approaches... man, people when are you going to realize that even if this will work, you will never know which of those expensive supps do the job and which you don't need.

    Yeah, but see... it's easier to throw the kitchen sink at something and then try and figure out what works afterward than suffer with chronic and recurring headaches.

    Addendum to my above post:
    I decided to go with Nortryptaline instead of Mirtazepine. It's also a potent H1 blocker, and is regularly prescribed as a headache prophylactic. I will be taking Nortryptaline, histame, quercetin, Vitamin C, Ketotifen mast-cell stabilizer eye drops.

    I have struggled with food allergies all my life and have tried a lot of things to help control the symptoms but high histamines levels is also associated with under methylation. So trying SAMe might be a good option to start with. I personally have found calcium, magnesium and vitamin c to work the best as far as supplements go. Quercetin chalcone did nothing for me and that was the water soluble/more expensive form. Tomato sauce or ketchup will guarantee give me eczema every time. If I take 1,000mg of Vitamin C with the meals containing that I notice the allergic response is noticeably less. Digestive enzymes and probiotics of all sorts don't help me at all except for less bloating maybe, but not the other typical reactions. This link may be helpful to you.
