Detoxification From Salicylates

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone have experience with detoxifying the body from salicylates?

I believe I have grown sensitive to them from over-consumption of fruits and veggies in the recent months after having to go gluten and grain free....

I am sticking to mostly these foods for the time being:

white potato

allowed low sal veggies


ricotta and cottage cheese

beef & chicken


does anyone know how long it takes to clear the sals from your system before you can feel relief/begin re-introducing?

It's different for everybody. We all have a different "load" we can tolerate. Maybe (this is just a guess) give it three months? Then you can try a small amout of your favorite medium sals food. If you have no reaction, wait a week and try something else. Sals build up in your system so if you eat a medium sals food every day you will be right back where you started.

For myself, I have found that I can eat pistachios, but only ten or twelve a week. I tried blueberries, which I absolutely love, but they didn't work for me. I think because I love them so much I ate too many. I had a half-pint of organic ones, and it took me three days to eat them, but to be honest, by the second day I knew I was reacting. I finished them on the third day anyway because I knew I'd never be able to eat them again, so I savored every bite.

At some point next summer I am going to go as low sals as possible for three months, then try bluberries again - just a small handful. It's better than nothing...

    • 60% of celiacs with dh test negative on the celiac blood work. Fact. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease.
    • Person above me is correct. You need a skin biopsy, and it must be performed correctly. I never had a positive blood test but my biopsy came up positive for DH. Going gluten-free for a month usually won't  clear up DH. It commonly takes ~6 months, and this only on a very strict gluten-free diet. Any exposure to even small amounts of gluten (through cross-contamination, etc) can lead to flareups.     
    • Has your derm ever done a dh biopsy? BTW, it's not taken ON a lesion, it's taken on clear skin adjacent to a fresh lesion. I bet your derm doesn't know that. I bet if you ask for a dh biopsy he will take it right on top of a lesion. Ditch him & get a derm who knows about celiac & dh & how to properly take a biopsy for it. The antibodies can stay under the skin for years. The derm is wrong.  Please describe how the rash acts & what it feels like.
    • Yes, there are other grains that have gluten but they don't have the TYPE of gluten that affects celiacs. Celaics can not have the gluten in wheat, barley, & rye. Corn has gluten but it is not the kind of gluten we react to. I actually use corn gluten in my garden as it prevents weed seeds from sprouting. LOL! Hey, it works great! Read these: Gluten is the name for the protein in grains. All grains contain protein that is theoretically gluten but people with celiac disease and most other gluten allergies only react to the form of gluten found in wheat (including spelt, kamut, triticale and all varieties of wheat), barley, and rye. From:   I've run across another gluten urban legend that needs to be dispelled: the idea that people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity actually react to gluten in all grains, not just wheat, barley, rye and sometimes oats. This just isn't true, despite what you might have heard or read. People who react to the gluten protein found in wheat, barley and rye don't automatically need to avoid rice, corn, millet, sorghum and other grains. From:   There are some unsavory sites out there in internet land that will tell you celiacs cross react to all grains. They generally have something to sell, a book, a video, some vitamins or other things. They use scare tactics to sell what they are selling. These claims simply are not true. If they were, then all the people on this site who have gotten well while not eating wheat, barley & rye but continuing to eat rice, quinoa, corn & so forth would not have gotten well; they would be dead by now & there would be no "old timers" on this site because they would have eventually died from eating grains other than wheat, barley & rye. Celiacs can develop sensitivities to other foods, even foods like cabbage or lettuce or potatoes or even rice or maybe only brown rice but that does not mean they are reacting b/c of gluten in those things. You may be doing great since eliminating rice from your diet and that is wonderful that you figured out that it affects you but that does not mean the rice contains the kind of protein that celiacs can not tolerate.  
    • So, I've had a skin condition for years which looks like DH but blood tests for it come back normal.  High doses of steroids or of immuno-suppressants work well to clear my skin, but as soon as they are reduced the inflammation returns.  I tried a gluten free diet for a month, during which my skin seemed to set on fire even more.  My dermatologist says if my problem was DH then I would have had a positive result from going gluten free for four weeks, although information on the internet suggests it takes at least 6 months.  Does anyone have some experience of something like this?  Do I believe my dermatologist or the internet???
