    One often overlooked and very important concept when it comes to leaky gut is the the concept of food intolerance, specifically to histamine containing food. This intolerance may include tyramines as well. The foods that we eat contain histamines that over stimulate our immune system. Histamine itself coses alot of autoimmune like conditions in the body. Lots of food contain histamine, in fact, you cannot avoid it and if u have CFS and a leaky gut you will be histamine intolerant bcos your body does not produce the probiotics or the enzyme to break down histamine.

    It is also the reason why pple with CFS feel so much better when they fast. It allows the liver to stop being busy assimilating and filtering foods and detox and process the toxins that are already in the body. It also reduces the amounts of histamine we are taking in.

    Heal the gut but definitely look into reducing histamine intake and breaking it down in general with probiotics or the histamine enzyme diamine oxidase.

    Example: If you take lots of Benadryl, Vitamin C and Quercertin and are still experiencing allergic and or gastro-intestinal symptoms (eg sneezing, sinus) you are histamine intolerant. These supplements stop your mast cells from releasing Histamine but once the Histamine is out and circulating there is no enzyme to break them down. The only other place the Histamine can be coming from if not from your immune system is your food. Supplements that reduce histamine production from your immune system won't really work. The Histamine is coming from the foods you eat and not your immune system. It's about breaking down histamine not reducing its production.

    Also it is not a myth that women who are pregnant notice their CFS symptoms gone. Pregnant women make up to like 400 times more DAO when compared to when they r not.

    I have another very easy suggestion for you to try for those who have severe food allergies and cannot tolerate many foods: chew one or 2 sticks of gum for at least 30 min and at least 3 times a day. I would be very interested in finding out your reactions to it. Do it for 3-5 days. I am very serious about this, this is not a joke. It can really help. You have nothing to lose and it is really cheap/

    Preferably chew it on an empty stomach and reuse the wade of gum becos it contains alot of weird stuff in it that you don't want to expose your body too much too with every new stick. Pass this idea around and try it. Please post on PR about your experiences if you benefit from this or if you don't.
