Or lack of molybdenum/sulfur. We tested him for molyb and he is low so we are supplementing that for now. May try MSM. Zinc too which I cannot believe given his amazing diet. Have yet to do copper.

Have I ever mentioned how much supplemental zinc my kids are getting? 25-30mg/day, been doing this for quite a while now, and DD still seems to have subtle low zinc symptoms, and when DS got 50 ant bites in the spring, within a week he started mouthing things. I think the extra detoxification work (Texas -> fire ants -> toxin to get rid of) pushed him from borderline low to low.

Can I ask, did you use the taste product in your siggy? I was just reading the link, I've read of that idea before, it's intriguing.

Update for the record: DS's zinc blood level was fine but copper level was twice as much (meaning he needs more zinc).

Magnesium and other supplements are certainly helping him tolerate some low-to-moderate sal foods. We had been doing mag. by mouth for a long time and since we've moved to baths (transdermal) this year, I can see that is a much better method of delivery. I had already been taking much more mag. than he did (I applied oil to skin in addition to baths but his sensitive skin couldn't tolerate magnesium oil or gel). It certainly appears to boost my salicylate tolerance the more I could saturate my body. Although my tolerance at this point is certainly not unlimited. I can feel bladder twinges whenever I overdo it (Applegate Farms pepperoni!)

So I'm certainly convinced at this point interstitial cystitis is salicylate intolerance (and the presence of nutrient deficiencies so the body cannot properly process salicylates).

So I'm Bumping This Thread:
Anyone with interstitial cystitis try the FAILSAFE diet?
