Are you showing signs of histamine imbalance? Are you showing signs of copper and/or iron imbalance?
The Cantin Ketogenic Diet takes allergens and toxines into consideration. When trying to help my friend who is epileptic and researching what caused his seizures, I researched copper toxicity. Epileptic seizures are linked to low histamine and it is very important to know that copper destroys histamine per scientific study below. I was also made aware of a scientific study for TNBC (triple-negative breast cancer) that shows that Copper depletion shows early success in triple-negative breast cancer. This is just another link between epilepsy & cancer and copper & histamine levels. Per the study below, other conditions also show signs of imbalance histamine levels: "Brain histamine levels are decreased in Alzheimer’s disease patients whereas abnormally high histamine concentrations are found in the brains of Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenic patients. Low histamine levels are associated with convulsions and seizures. The release of histamine is altered in response to different types of brain injury: e.g. increased release of histamine in an ischemic brain trauma might have a role in the recovery from neuronal damage." Low histamine was also observed for ALS with Lou Gehrig and it is documented that his doctors tried to give him histamine injections for the low histamine. For type 1 diabetes, per study below: "Plasma histamine concentrations are elevated in patients with diabetes mellitus and peripheral vascular disease". For cancer, per study below: "Notably, most malignant cell lines and experimental tumours express the histamine-synthesizing enzyme, L-histidine decarboxylase (HDC, EC 220.127.116.11) and contain high concentration of endogenous histamine that can be released to the extracellular media and via a paracrine or autocrine regulation, histamine may regulate diverse biological responses related to tumour growth (Bartholeyns and Fozard, 1985; Garcia-Caballero et al., 1994; Engel et al., 1996; Rivera et al., 2000; Falus et al., 2001; Pós et al., 2004). These events include angiogenesis, cell invasion, migration, differentiation, apoptosis and modulation of the immune response, indicating that histamine may be a crucial mediator in cancer development and progression." ~Elaine Cantin

Note from Elaine: Do you see the link again in this video with immunotherapy (ie: toxins from allergens)?
