    Reading down this post, I had a lot of questions...but this make me reconsider them. Ah, well,

    TMG is trimethylglycine. A fairly inexpensive supplement that is substrate for the BHMT enzyme.

    What low-histamine protocol are you using? I bought the low histamine chef cookbook, and it's all too high in histamines for me! Tomatoes??? Are you kidding??? Wasted $15. I have a concise list that works well for me; I will share if you want.

    If none of the dietary restrictions help, why are you pursuing them? To me, the most severe diet was the low sulfur. If that doesn't help, it's probably not diet-related, in my opinion. At least for my body.

    BTW, for histamine, you can eat eggs as long as you don't eat the whites raw (like in protein shakes).

    For your glutathione, I'm not quite remembering it, but there are things that shift production to taurine instead of glutathione or away from it. I'm thinking B6 is a good guy (I need P5P because I'm still deficient with regular B6). I think NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) is a good guy, except if you're histamine intolerant - then it's a very bad guy. Maybe someone can expand on this.

    I'm a little scattered tonight, myself. Hope some of this is helpful.

    @SOC , I was finally able to find some brain power to look at heartfixer and, although I am still completely confused, I wanted to say thank you for helping me because I couldn't have found that info on my own!

    @Critterina , My doctor gave me methylB12 with methylfolate in liquid form. One drop is 0.5mg B12 and 2mg of the folate. I'm going to start it today. Hoping I'm not jumping the gun into something adverse because I still haven't managed to research Yasko/Fredd/RichVK .... :(
    Thank you for your help!

    Thank you, @Soundthealarm21 I definitely eat high fat and high protein (meat). I think I have a sensitivity to eggs. I;ve reintroduced them 3 times now and, becasue of the severity of my ME symptoms in general, can't quite tell one way or another whether I'm right. I'm on these crazy eliminations to repair my gut, but, so far, they don't seem to be helping.

    @EMilo

    Diet, prebiotics, probiotics, fermented foods, butyric acid, phospholipids (Phosphatidylcholine, Phosphatidylserine, Phosphatidylinositol, Phosphatidlyethanolamine) are very important for repairing the gut. Butyric acid is the substance in the highest amount at the bottom of your gut lining before you get to the blood stream. It is a great way to decrease gut permeability.

    Prebiotics and butyric acid I'll look into. I take probiotics and phosphatidylserine for high nighttime cortisol. Can't do fermented foods because of histamine. I appreciate your help!

    Ah okay! I know very little about histamine issues!

    No problem I'm happy to throw around what little help I can!
