I'm still not sure if i have this but...i read on a website that even smelling it can trigger a reaction is this true? I mean...if i can't have high sals foods and my husband can..does he have to give them up because...i can smell them when he's making stuff in the kitchen...

I had salicylate sensitivity for a while, but it seems to be getting better. It turns out I had gastritis, and the sals made my stomach sting.

I don't know if you can get symptoms from smelling sals, but I know I get a reaction from smelling gluten foods when my family cooks them.

I'm always paranoid while walking through the grocery store bread section...it's just unavoidable. I don't get sick but i'm always scared I will and hold my breath :( So is salicylic sensitivity something that is temporary sometimes then? I'd been sniffing young living essential oils-peppermint and ginger (both high in sals) the couple days before i got sick. The sick feeling was way worse than my usual slight tummy aches. And turnip greens seem to have given me tummy ache before too. Completely freaked out :(

I seem to be overcoming my sals sensitivity too. I haven't tried blueberries yet, but I have been eating spices, and spices are high in sals. The thing is, sals never bothered my gut. They made my psoriasis flare badly. I've been eating spicy bison hot dogs, and I also made pork pie with allspice, and clove. I ate it twice a day for several days (because it's my favorite). No psoriasis whatsoever.

I seem to be good with white potatoes again too, so if nightshades were a problem, it seems they no longer are. I'll be testing that next week when I go get some gluten-free pizza. The place I plan on going is owned by a family with celiac members so they are really good about CC. Several celiacs I know eat there without problems, so wish me luck!

Did you ever need an epipen bartfull? I'm on the sals website now reading their forums and utterly terrified. Some people can't even smell mowed grass and that's a huge childhood memory of mine that i savor during summer weather and i sniff it in and it's comforting. I'm really scared I'll need an epipen and that all this is permanent etc. I'm scared i will have to give up that childhood memory along with all the gluteny ones :(

No, my only sals reaction was psoriasis. What is your reaction? If it isn't hives and breathing then what you have is an intolerance, not an allergy. If you get sick to your stomach, you won't need an epipen. :)

I've only ever had stomach problems/digestive issues. I did have itching back in 2009 right after a visit to disney...i had a bad flu and my in laws gave me motrin. But that continued on and off for a couple years after and later i found out hypothyroid and celiac can cause this itching sensation under my skin. When my husband first moved in when we were dating i would get cold uticaria or whatever the name of it is lol....We'd be out walking in the snow in the cold and sometimes but not always i would get this large raised disc shaped things on my cheek. The itching i use to get from time to time use to be that i would either scratch my arm or my husband would scratch my back and a line of bumps would pop up where i was scratched. That doesn't happen the past year or so even before i cut high sals. What do you think? Is that hives?

I chew peppermint trident gum all the time too and usually my tummy isn't bothering me when i do. So i dunno what to think. Because i'm theorizing that these essential oils i sniffed might have done this...because of their sals content....i just dont know..

the group said this about it..not encouraging :(http://salicylatesen...7&page=1#Item_0

NOTE: I did the ice cube test on my forearm just now to see if i get cold urticaria still...i only ever got it on my cheek anyhow but for both me and my husband there was just a red ring surrounding where the ice cube was (which i would think anyone would get really) and no raised areas. Weird. Maybe going gluten free got rid of any urticaria..cold or otherwise that i use to have? I will say I put the ice cube on my cheek for a few seconds..couldn't handle more than that because ice stings....welll..i didn't notice anything at first and now since WARMING UP i feel a small little raised area..not sure if that was actually there before or not. Dunno what to think. What does it mean when you have cold affecting your face but not the rest of you??

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
