    23Andme Genetic Tests

    I did the 23andme.com DNA test which tests for a range of inherited health conditons (as well as estimates your ancestry composition, which wasn't as interesting but whatever). Thought you all might be interested because there are DNA markers for - lactose intolerance - fructose intolerance - hemochromatosis (people with these markers are more at risk for iron overload because they metabolize iron differently, there are also theories that people with this mutation handle starchy grain
  2. I was wondering if anyone has tried out the Voll/ EAV electroacupuncture method of allergy testing. I tried something electromagnetic a few years ago, but the results were not the same as the ones I had done at an allergist's office. Has anyone tried Voll? Here's a bit more information on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroacupuncture_according_to_Voll
  3. I'm testing something new and while too soon to say for certain, it does seem to help. Doing nothing.. specifically, avoiding soil based bacteria by cooking or thoroughly washing all vegetables, and also not taking probiotics. Here's my long journey...

Catch-22? Estrogen increases histamine, increased histamine also increases estrogen... - Estrogen increases kinins
  5. I'm curious to hear what sorts of intolerances people on this forum have, whether they've learned through food allergy tests or discovered them from personal experience. I hear all sorts of things on H&H from members of genus prunus (stone fruit, almonds) to citrus fruit to strawberries to the obvious wheat/gluten/dairy/soy. When I was younger my best friend was allergic to chocolate (white chocolate was okay though). She's since grown out of it or become more tolerant of it or whatever. So
