How we can hijack the media, in four easy lessons
Love it, hate it, good story, bad story... the media are going to keep reporting on ME/CFS no matter what. But isn’t it time that we saw that coverage as an opportunity?

    I thought this was an interesting perspective on the menstrual cycle in terms of histamine. I'm not sure if it is true though it would bear further investigations. It also explains why women may have a higher preponderance than men.

    Ema, I have not read the entire article (too tired from lack of sleep), but this is interesting. If you remember me, I am all of a sudden dealing with a histamine issue, and the last nearly 2 months have been hell for me. Unable to eat, lost 10% of my body weight in a couple of wks. Multiple chemical sensitivites.

    I've stabilized my weight loss through the Failsafe elimination diet over the last 4 wks but am still having histamine issues.

    The one thing that caught my eye with this article is that for the first time in my 22 years of menstrating (I'm 34), I missed my last period. I have ALWAYS been very regular, but it did not come this month. I wonder if this is due to the weight loss. Just another problem for me to worry about, I guess.
