Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    Whenever I take Metafolin I get a severe histamine reaction. I talked to Rick about this and he said to try Folinic Acid. But I am curious if there is one possible mutation causing undermethylation whereby I would not even need to supplement any type of folic acid during my treatment protocol. Does anyone else have problems with metafolin? Literally every benefit I get goes away when I add in Metafolin. I'm not sure about folic acid. I have not tried folinic.

    Hi XKS201,

    Can you tell me all the symptoms you get from the Metafolin? Time to onset? Duration of action?

    Basically I just start itching and get hot and somewhat hyper and then tired all within like 15 minutes of taking it. And this lasts for like 1-2 hours. Folic acid does it to me as well. Idk if folinic will. I hear b6 and b12 deplete folic acid so maybe I am just very deficient in those?

    The common denominator in most of us is poor liver function (enzymes to produce neurotransmitters) it seems. Perhaps I have histadelia from a possible bacteria infection in my gut that is already adding into the histamine being produced from folic acid. I am making a lot of human strain probiotic yogurt in several days and going to see if that kills off the infection which sometimes manifests as burning stool. I know low serotonin can cause infections.

    Hi xks201,

    Are you taking ALL the basics like b-complex including p-5-p?

    The active b12 protocl is predicated on havoing all the basics so that questions like other induced deficiencies don't pop up. Ohterwise as much history as show a person is always putting out one fire after another. Mb12/adb12/Metafolin start out beinbg the most limiting factors. As soon as those are sufficient other things go deficient.

    Potassium
    b-complex TWICE a day
    Zinc
    Vit D
    magnesium
    Vit A
    etc.

    If they are not all taken one just moves from one stopping point to another with all sorts of weird symptoms popping up over and over and over again.
