I have high Histamine (when a doc tested serum histamine), this correlates to undermethylation. I notice when I have red meat, I feel cognitively much better. This is something that’s only recently started to sink in. I was listening to an ATP podcast, possibly one on MTHFR and they were touting the benefits of liver. I think I remember Mark Sisson talking about blending liver raw? So I cooked up some liver from an online recipe. yes. Success. This will now in one way or another be a staple in my diet. Possibly I might try blending in a stirfry…
I still don’t totally understand the whole process.. but the words methionine and homocystine came to me after I ate this liver and felt great… I think methlyation turns homocystine into usable methionine? or something…?
Edit: Well well well…
“Folic acid (folate) is one of the ‘B’ vitamins that is needed to metabolise homocysteine.” – I believe Liver was mentioned to be one of the best sources for folate in that podcast. Reading up on MTHFR and they mention that an issue is “converting folic acid (or more precisely 5,10-methylene tetrahydrofolate) into 5-methyl folate.” Which I think was one of the issues mentioned in the ATP episode… So potentially that may mean I have a MTHFR C677T block if liver is able to supply me with folate I am unable to convert from folic acid..? Also I was cooking this liver with a bunch of garlic and onion, possibly contraindicated…
This podcast shows how we are terrible at multitasking, and how trying to switch between tasks occasionally results in highly reduced work efficiency. Like me right now.
Really good watching this back 🙂

“One suspects that as religious vilification laws spread, the liberal proponents of these laws will end up unwittingly empowering those who believe that their religion should be above condemnation.”

from a really interesting article on hate speech laws in Australia.
The article states
‘The Act prohibits conduct “that incites hatred against, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of” a class of people based on their religious beliefs. Its force was brought to bear against Scot and another pastor, Danny Nalliah, after three Australian converts to Islam covertly attended a seminar they held in March 2002, took notes, and then filed a legal complaint.’
Also from wikipedia
“The Court said the Tribunal had no business “attempt[ing] to assess the theological propriety of what was asserted at the Seminar.” The Court directed a re-hearing before a different judge. The pastors and the Islamic Council of Victoria prevented a re-hearing by resolving their conflict through mediation on 22 June 2007.”
After reading Dr. Mark Starr‘ book on Hypothyroidism as well as Elle Russ’ latest book The Paleo Thyroid Solution I am quite optimistic about the potential of thyroid hormone replacement. When I first heard Elle talking about thyroid hormone replacement on the primal blueprint podcast, I was skeptical. I had the mindset that I could do all the steps such as diet such and vitamin supplementation to get the results I’m after. Since then and after reading these books, I’m optimistic about the this potential solution given my symptoms. So I guess thyroid is my latest intervention.
And what do you know, Joe Freaking Rogan is on Thyroid replacement hormones (at 43:50)
“Therefore, successful therapy is completely dependent upon the body’s ability to continuously eliminate the toxic burden, while at the same time preventing oxidative stress in the body.”
