Salicylate/Amine/Histamine Sensitive Tribe - Page 20

post #381 of 391

Oxalates mimic a histamine related affect.  I read this and I have also experienced this with myself and my son.  Foods that are high in histamine, such as beets for example, will make him tired and he'll a flash of a headache.  Also rutabaga.  Be careful with citric acid as well.  It causes histamine release.  And sodium benzoate, which occurs naturally in some fruits.  Maybe check to see if any of the things you are eating are high in oxalates, citric acid, or sodium benzoate.

Calcium, Mg, and C.  Calcium helps to remove histamine from the body.  Also Vit. B6 does as well.  And epsom salts work really well for us too.

Where do you live?  I need one so bad.  I'm in Athens, GA.

We have been having really good luck with MSM.  But also Ca has been most helpful.  It helps to remove histamine form the body as does Vit B6.  Supplement Mg with epsom salts.

Sammy - have you looked into the possibility of mastocytosis?  You mention joint or bone pain which is common with masto as well as a lot of other allergies and rashes.   The reason I call myself the "SpottedFoxx" is because I am covered in spots caused by too much histamine in my body.  I have systemic mastocytosis.  If you want more info, please feel free to PM me.

I have a number of friends with mito kiddos who are also being worked up for mastocytosis

 

 

have you heard of Dr. Theo? He has found a link between the 2 disorders.

Dr. Theo is the cat's meow!  He's also done some ground breaking research on the blood/brain/gut barrier.  Just google his name and blood brain gut and you'll get the videos.

 

Have you heard of Dr. Escrobinas in Spain? He's doing some incredible pediatric stuff  as well (he's a sweetheart and so is his wife - met them at a masto conference).  He has a clinic and will answer parent emails so if you find info on him and have questions - just email him.

My 29 month old daughter has a salicylate sensitivity that was diagnosed by an allergist. The only symptoms she showed were a rash around her mouth and under her eyes and she would stop eating whatever the food was. We have done a good job of avoiding the rash now, but I am wondering if only certain sals bother her or if all do.
My concern is that we are having a terrible time potty training her. She knows what to do and seems interested, but doesn't stay dry for long periods of time. Some days are better than others and I wonder if there is a correlation to what we ate that day.. I read somewhere that several sals sensitive kids were hard to potty train or were potty trained and had accidents after eating high sal foods. Have any of you experienced this? She is a smart girl and I just wonder if I need to cut out more sal foods that originally thought. Thanks!

@ellasmommy10 have you looked into if she may also have an issue processing oxalates? They can lead to vaganial pain and painful urination and dumping of oxalate crystals in the urine that others have reported causes alot of issue and pain with potty training...

 

I have noticed that alot of people on the oxalate board also have issues with salicylates and I believe both are linked by mitochondrial dysfunction/disease.

Oh wow I have never heard of oxalates! It sounds very possible though. Between her sal sensitivity and my gluten intolerance (and 36 additional IgA and IgG allergies), I feel like we can hardly eat anything! This is overwhelming. Off to the oxalate board to do a little research. Thanks for the info!
