On the lone-afib board, some found coffee to be a trigger, but later determined that organic coffee was not a trigger.

FWIW I don't drink it, but was getting a histamine reaction when my finance' brewed hers. I had her use organic beans that she ground fresh. No reaction on my part. Later, I had changed my diet so histamine was generally lower. Then I no longer had reaction to the preground Folgers.


George, thanks for sharing this information. I'm glad your histamine intolerance has improved.

I have suggested to my husband that he use organic coffee from now on. He has histamine intolerance, though eating fermented veggies has greatly reduced his symptoms (which is contrary to the usual advice for people with this intolerance to avoid ferments).

I actually never drank coffee either, so I really don't have an issue with not drinking it. Over my life, I've had sips of coffee here and there but probably not even the equivalent of a cup. It never tasted good to me.

Instead, I drink green tea, as well as herbal teas, just about every day.

Hey beautiful people! Just a quick Hello and a note from my writer's retreat about a new study:

http://www.businessinsider.com/abstaini ... fe-2013-12

No mention of APOE effects, but surely the study itself stratified by APOE status, right? Nope! (I checked wth the authors.) This study (and "non-investigative" reporting on it) could (likely) shorten the lives of ~20% of people in the West. Frustrating!

Last year i was eating whole wheat rum cake, thinking it would improve my lipoprotein numbers, but it appeared to contribute to their worsening. Was also eating too many nuts and seeds as well, so too much fat was likely an even bigger factor, especially in the light of the research about apoE-4 people.

Alcohol doesn't really agree with me anyway. The little bit in the rum cake was more for flavoring. If i do have a rare drink, perhaps i'll seek out a green tea rice wine.

Caffeine can trigger an anxiety attack in me, so i practically never drink coffee other than a rare decaf or coffee vegan ice cream since i like the flavor. Have also been eating a low sulfur diet and coffee doesn't fit into that.

About DHM, a much cheaper alt. to DHM Depot's product:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01G0LOHOC

Don't know about the company but I think I'll buy a batch and try it. But first I want to wait to see their reply to my ? to them about where they're located (I don't buy things to ingest from China).

I think the right level is zero. Also you said you sleep better however it is well known that any alcohol within 4 hours of bedtime will disrupt rem sleep. I personally don't drink anymore. I drunk like an idiot into my 30s. If someone asks I just say I don't drink. If they ask why. I just say I've got kids and I want to be on point for them in the morning and not feeling like crap. They wake at 6:30am every day. I also have hereditary hemochromatosis so I had iron overload. My liver has been through a lot and it doesn't need the additional stress. But honestly it just comes down to that it makes me feel like crap. I can feel even 2 beers the next day. Sometimes in social situations I will get a soda water with a lime in it just so I don't get questions or pressure. But honestly I don't give a shit about what people think, if misery loves company they can do it on their own. I know whats good for me and it isn't alcohol. If you have a problem with that you aren't my friend and I'm done with you.
