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...
