Is an old cure for cluster. The first cure suggested from Doc.Horton (see Horton syndrome, the symptoms of CH).
The hystamine theory is near to be cancelled from the causes of cluster (perhaps not in USA, so strange, normally US people kick the wrong cures BEFORE Europe.. :-))
In few words you have to take a lot of anti-histaminics (those you take for allergies) and cortisone based meds.
Despite the fact this cure was abandoned years ago, I have some doubts of the wrongness of this. I, for myself, am in remission EXACTLY from the time I developed a strong allergy (fish). And this always sounded me strange.
Anyway, (excluding swelling and other cortisonic side effects) you can try it with less problem than other cures. Ask to your doc.

Oh, BTW.... DJ is a nickname already taken here (is our webmaster), could you modify or change it, just to avoid confusion?
