In this new episode, Naturopath Joanne Kennedy takes us through the ins and outs of the biochemistry of histamine and homocysteine in the body, including how too much or too little of either of these can present in patients, what blood tests she recommends and why it is so important to test homocysteine in anyone who comes into our clinics with an inflammatory condition, and why we need to be cautious in prescribing methylated B vitamins to clients in these cases.
