Please be careful with taking Vit-c for histamine, as Vit-c will chelate Copper and lower your levels of it. Copper is very important in metabolizing histamine.
I've just posted the first in a series of posts on my blog about histamine intolerance, http://dietarymedicine.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/histamine-intolerance-introduction.html
General upshot is, be careful of the foods that are apparently high in histamine, but you might find you can tolerate a lot of them.

Histamine intolerance can be a tricky problem to deal with, but don't give up hope!
I've been taking ascorbic acid powder with meals to help with my histamine intolerance. I believe I'm slightly less sensitive to histamine in foods than I used to be, but it's hard to say whether this is a result of the vitamin C or not.
I believe that my histamine intolerance is a symptom of an underlying gut problem which I'm trying to tackle using the GAPS diet. When I was looking into histamine intolerance I found the following sites had some useful info:
1) http://thatpaleoguy.com/ looks at it from a Paleo/biochemical/diet and treatment angle
2) http://roosclues.blogspot.co.uk/ is a blog by a women who had success with histamine intolerance (and a whole load of other problems) in her and her son, mostly through diet.

Yes. Ascorbic acid powder dissolved in water is best, followed by capsules. 1000 mg every 1/2 hour is the absorption rate, I believe, so best to take small amounts frequently.

I really don't know if vitamin C is good for histamine intolerance. But if you want to know it for sure you have to talk to your allergist.
I'm handling my sensitivity with histamine with a dietary supplement called Daosin. Daosin is a dietary supplement which controls your histamine level within your body. Basicly every time if you eat/drink sth histamine rich you histamine levels starts to rise and your body reacts with an allergic reaction. The symptoms can be also very difficult to identify. Some people will get headache, someone starts to puke and so on.
I'm using Daosin for almost 3 month and I'm really happy with it. Atm all I know is it's only available at the internet!
Get well soon!
