Hi, actually I love chocolate but I can't eat it because of my food interolances to everything. However when trying supplements (B12 e.g.) or new foods they sometimes drag me into a hole of depression. There is nothing I can do about it especially with the B12. Really sad to read all the threads about the positive effects of B12 when it causes this adverse effect in me. Luckily many times my body craves for chocolate then and luckily this works. I tried all kind of things but it's the chocolate that works only. It's definetly not the sugar, I eat dark chocolate (70%) in those situations only and within 1 hour my mood improves drastically (maybe because of the neurotransmitters or the magnesium contained in chocolate) while skin etc. worsen because of the food intolerances. I don't care because of the latter as long as I feel better. In fact, chocolate works faster and better than any SRI's (I only take them in case of an emergency ;-) and 1 tablet/capsule normally lasts for 1-2 weeks). This would be ok if hadn't all these food intolerances. My digestion is so bad and my intestines seem so inflamed...weight gain is no problem for me, I can eat as much calories as I want...they all go down the drain. Enzymes make it worse while probiotics are fine but don't seem to be a solution for it. I wonder if HHV 6+7 or EBV attack our intestines so hard that we suffer from those intolerances and GI problems. I know quite a few people on the HHV-6 Foundation forum who suffer from extreme intolerances and allergies like some people (including me) here. Has anyone found a solution at least for the GI and intolerance problems? I mean I don't eat fructose, lactose, gluten etc. but my GI tract doesn't get better even on this extreme diet. I suspect 2 causes: 1. Virological. 2. Reduced blood flow to the intestines. Any comments?
