Histadelia (Histamine High)

Histadelia (Histamine High): Overview

Histadelia, more common in males, is characterized by elevated blood levels of histamine. This is a disorder, prominent in males, of too much histamine in the blood, as opposed to histapenia in which case there is too little.

Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms include hyperactivity, compulsions, obsessions, inner tensions, blank mind episodes, phobias, chronic depression, and strong suicidal tendencies.  Physical signs can include little tolerance for pain, rapid metabolism, lean build, profuse sweating, seasonal allergies, and frequent colds.

Treatment and Prevention

The treatment of histadelia requires great patience because six to ten weeks are often needed before the beginning of significant improvement.  The treatment usually takes twelve months to complete.

Conditions that suggest Histadelia (Histamine High):

Addictions

Addictions / Addictive Tendencies often suggests Histadelia (Histamine High)Addictions / Addictive Tendencies
Nutritional treatment for drug and alcohol users will depend on the results of a test for blood histamine levels.  In one series of such analysis, all users proved to have high histamine levels, leading the scientist to conclude that this abnormality – with its impact on brain function – is a major force in creating addiction.  [Nutrition Guide for the Prevention and Cure of Common Ailments and Diseases, Carlton Fredericks, PhD.  p.58]

Allergy

Mental

Depression often suggests Histadelia (Histamine High)Depression
Histadelics are often chronically and suicidally depressed.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) often suggests Histadelia (Histamine High)Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Histadelics are often prone to obsessions, compulsions, and addictions.

Metabolic

Insomnia may suggest Histadelia (Histamine High)Insomnia
The overarousal seen in histadelia may contribute to insomnia.

Schizophrenia is sometimes misdiagnosed as Histadelia (Histamine High)Schizophrenia
Some 15-20% of "schizophrenic" patients are in fact suffering from histadelia, which shares similar symptoms and can be misdiagnosed.

Recommendations for Histadelia (Histamine High):

Amino Acid / Protein

Methionine is highly recommended for Histadelia (Histamine High)Methionine
Methionine supplements lower blood levels of histamine by increasing histamine breakdown.

Diet

Plant-Based Nutrition may help with Histadelia (Histamine High)Plant-Based Nutrition
Nutritionists recommend a low-protein, high complex carbohydrate diet.  Histidine, which is more common in animal proteins, should be avoided as it can be converted into histamine.

Lab Tests/Rule-Outs

Test Copper Levels is highly recommended for Histadelia (Histamine High)Test Copper Levels
Testing serum or hair copper levels is usually adequate for evaluating copper status when low levels of copper are suspected and hair contamination with copper can be ruled out.  When in doubt, it would be better to use more accurate tests such as the 24 hour urine copper or serum ceruloplasmin.
Test Folic Acid Levels is highly recommended for Histadelia (Histamine High)Test Folic Acid Levels
Under certain conditions, such as anticipated or actual pregnancy, a simple lab test for serum folate levels is advisable.  If the test results show low levels, supplementation should be considered to prevent potential birth defects.

Mineral

Copper often helps with Histadelia (Histamine High)Copper
Copper levels may be low to normal in patients with histadelia.  Copper is part of the enzyme histaminase, which is involved in the metabolism of histamine.

Vitamins

Not recommended:
Folic Acid is often not recommended for Histadelia (Histamine High)Folic Acid
Histadelics should avoid supplemental folic acid as it can produce excess histamine.  In fact, anti-folate drugs may be required.  Folic acid increases depression in histadelic patients and a trial of folic acid could be used to distinguish between histapenics and histadelics.  In extreme cases, folic acid in food or in multivitamins is enough to produce the adverse effects.
