Foods High in Salicylates

Salicylates can cause such a variety of symptoms.

The most common ones being:

  • Respiratory symptoms such as asthma and sinus congestion
  • Skin conditions such as itchy skin, eczema, dermatitis and welts.
  • Digestive complaints such as stomach pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.

Salicylates can also cause brain fog, tinnitus, watery and itchy eyes and headaches.

Salicylates are found in so many fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices. Click here for a comprehensive list of what salicylates are in.

Salicylates are hard to avoid. Maybe this is the first time you’re reading about salicylates and you’re trying to establish if there is a link between your symptoms to salicylate intolerance or maybe you already know you have a sensitivity to salicylates and you’re trying to find a possible solution. 

15 years of clinical experience have taught me that salicylate sensitivity can be treated. The treatment is done online and it usually takes 2-3 sessions to notice an improvement. You will need to avoid salicylates after the treatment, but only for 24 hours and then I will create a specific protocol for you explaining how you can introduce salicylates back into your diet and which salicylates are safe to introduce as it may differ from person to person.

I had a client that came to see me with recurrent urinary tract infections. She was trying to understand why she was getting them so frequently for the past few years and why taking supplements and antibiotics didn’t clear them entirely.

I tested her using muscle testing and I got that she was sensitive to salicylates, yeast and sugar and also that there was an emotional and mental component that contributed to the infection as well.

Salicylates can cause such a wide range of symptoms. Ususally salicylate sensitivity affects the respiratory and digestive systems, but it can affect any body system. 

My client confirmed that she gets an infection every time she has alcohol (even half a glass of wine is enough to set it off). Wine is very high in salicylates as well as yeast and sugar, so again that all made sense to me.  She also said that at times of stress (work and relationship), her infections would flare up.

After 3 treatments in which I treated her sensitivity to salicylates, sugar and yeast and cleared the emotional and mental imbalances related to the infections, she was feeling much better.

I treated her 3 years ago and yesterday she sent me an email with a testimonial stating that she hasn’t had another urinary tract infection since I treated her all these years ago. She was amazed to know that even a urinary tract infection can be related to salicylate allergies.

Maybe your symptoms are due to a salicylate sensitivity?

The easiest yet hardest way to find out if you have a salicylate allergy is to go on a salicylate elimination diet and then slowly reintroduce them back into your diet. Alternatively, you can go on a low salicylate diet plan and see if your symptoms improve.

The reason I wrote it is the easiest and the hardest way is because going on a salicylate elimination diet is so restrictive and difficult, yet if you stick to a low salicylate diet plan, you will usually know within a few days if salicylates allergy is the cause of your symptoms as you will feel better once you eliminate them from your diet.

Foods High in Salicylates – A Comprehensive List

There are many salicylate food lists out there, yet they are in so many foods, so it is hard to find a very comprehensive one.

I often get asked if chocolate is included in the list of foods high in salicylates or if ginger is high in salicylates. Sometimes it is hard to find that information. I have compiled a very comprehensive salicylate food list in pdf form for you to have.

Staying off salicylates for long periods of time can cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies. If you think you are reacting to salicylates and would like to get that treated, please click below on the ‘FREE online consultation’ button, so we can set a time to discuss your possible treatment plan.

Testimonials

Lauren, Washington state, USA

Tomaya's method of healing has produced amazing results. I was having debilitating reactions to a variety of foods at almost every meal before working with Tomaya. Since Tomaya's treatments, I have been able to enjoy foods containing salicylates, amines, and dairy again, with no reaction. I experienced significant improvement after the first session. Her approach is gentle, yet effective. I am grateful that I found her!   Lauren, Washington state, USA

Hi Tomaya, you treated my little girl many years ago for allergies and asthma. She only needed the one treatment for salicylates and she has been free of issues since, so thank you!

There is no other way to describe this other than Magic. At first, I couldn't get myself to believe that distant healing can work, but apparently it's worth trying new things. Before I started these treatments, I had a sensitive bowel. I had symptoms like bloating, heaviness and stomach pain after eating and after just 3 treatments, I'm feeling significantly better. The bloating has gone down, the heaviness is barely there and the stomach pains are a lot better. I have been treated for salicylates and Tomaya also worked on my digestive system. I strongly recommend to keep an open mind and try this therapy.

After avoiding dairy for years, I now have the occasional splurge and don’t need to be looking for the nearest toilets. Thank you.

My physical and emotional health have improved dramatically since you started treating me. I have been suffering from Colitis and its not very pleasant associated symptoms. The treatments from far totally work! My problems are disappearing and I know this is a journey and there is a lot to treat, but I’m filled with excitement at the possibility of healing entirely. I can’t recommend you enough! Thank you!!!

Having had a major flare up of ulcerative colitis in Aug 2015, which resulted in 12 days in hospital and 2.5 months of some very strong conventional drugs (Oral and infusion) I was only progressing very slowly.My specialist was strongly suggesting removal of the large intestine, so I looked for alternatives. We remembered having had great success with treating my son's eczema with Tomaya from Allergy Field. After the first treatment I noticed a significant improvement in symptoms and it got even better after the second treatment. This was backed by having had two sigmoidoscopys (Either side of Tomaya's treatment). The specialist stated after the first one there was " serious ulcerative colitis" and one month after, second test "mild inflammation, no signs of ulcers or bleeding". Between the scopes I had two treatments with Tomaya and I believe this has had a huge effect on my symptoms. Thank you!!

Surprised and happy to find I felt greatly improved the following day- despite my being skeptical about the treatment. I haven’t changed anything else in my diet or my environment and 10 days later, I am pretty much symptom free. Thank you.

My 6 year old son has been complaining of severe stomach pains after eating. We’ve been to several specialists, but they couldn’t find anything. His pains are completely gone after one treatment. Thank you.

My daughter has had severe diarrhea from a very young age. She also gets red spots around her mouth and she throws up occasionally after food. I tried to eliminate what I thought was causing her symptoms, ut didn't have much luck. We had one treatment with Tomaya done via distance 2 months ago and there has been no diarrhea or skin rashes around her mouth since.
