Undermethylation AKA Histadelia.
Animal proteins contain an amino acid histidine, which the body can convert to histamine.
(Provided the conversion systems are in good working order - all components are present).
Histamine increases saliva production - washes the oral cavity and keeps it free of bacteria. As a result, there are fewer cavities.
Histamine is a molecule that is found in the blood. In the brain (synapsis of neurons) the same molecule acts as a neurotransmitter.
If the histamine is “undermethylated”, it can begin to build up in the system. When blood contains high levels of histamine (known as histadelia by the Pfeiffer treatment centre), the excess histamine is stored in the blood basophils (a type of white blood cell involved with inflammatory reactions in your body) and brain neurons.
This in turn can result in low levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine – the chemicals responsible for making us feel good. Despite a high energy drive, those suffering from histadelia can often also show symptoms of depression due to low serotonin levels.
