0 Comments 17 February 2015

Excess histamine mimics anorexia

0 Comments 07 February 2015

In the past I have alluded to my anorexic-like phase, when I was only “able” to eat four or five foods. My weight plummeted to 52kg or so, on a 1.78m frame (114.5lbs, 5ft 10). Honestly, it wasn’t my first brush with the A word. When I was 14, a photo in our biology textbook […]

0 Comments 11 December 2014

And that’s still not my intention – please, take this post with a heaping spoon of salt. If you are suffering from unexplained infertility, or repeated miscarriage, you may want […]
