    Ok, does anyone know if flaxseed oil is high or low in salicylates?? I haven't been able to find it on salicylate food lists and was curious because I know that flaxseed oil is suppose to be really good for you and a natural anti-inflamitory (which would be nice since most medical and natural anti-inflamitories do contain salicylates). So, has anyone tried flaxseed oil and if so did you react to it?

    Hi Beth

    I dont know the answer but I found a website all about the good that is does your health and I have emailed them and asked them if it is high or low in salicylates.

    IntenseWorkout@gmail.com

    If I get a reply I will post it on the form. I have never heard of flaxseed oil so its all new to me. What is the best sort of oil for me to use. Is sunflower oil okay. Before being diagnosed I always used olive oil thinking that it was the healthy thing to do!!

    Beth,
    My ss relative has used flaxseed oil and has had a reaction to it. I personally have small reactions to all oil, but I can get away with a tiny bit of canola oil. My ss realitive says it is because seeds are one of the places that plants store their salicylates.

    WT, funny you should post the sight on fibromyalgia. My ss relitive and I believe that ss and fibromyalgia might be the same thing.

    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me if the following is safe for me to take:-

    I have been looking for canola oil and my husband brought me home the following oil last night.

    Carotino red palm and canola oil vitamin rich 100% natural and cholesterol free

    a delicious healthy alternative to olive oil and other cooking oils
    contains naturally occuring vitamins and nutrient - natural - nutritious - cholesterol free no artificial colours additives or preservatives trans fats or genetically modified ingredients. suitable for kisher halal vegetarian and gluten free diets.

    made from natural red palm fruit and canola oil colour comes from alpha and beta carotenes which are converted to vitamin a in the body.

    it is 100% natural oil rich in anti-oxident pro-vitamin a and e

    rich in omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids

    good source of both lycopene and co-enzyme D10 carotino is high in healthy mono-unsaturated fats and free from unhealthy trans-fats. contains natural vitamin e

    I am unsure if it is okay to use. I have looked in Scotland for canola oil but this is the first time we have found it although as it has the red palm I am not sure if it is okay to use or not.

    Any help will be grately appreciated.

    I didnt want to start another topic so just put it under flaxseed oil.

    I reacted pretty strongly to deodorant that should have been fine aside from palm oil, but who knows about taken internally? We've found that we like safflower oil much better than canola. Sunflower oil might also be something you could find. Again it's much tastier than canola. Perhaps canola oil is called something else? I know that canola is also called oilseed rape when it's growing.

    Good luck oil hunting!

    I was really scared by reports on canola oil but then I read that all scare stories were scaremongering - if you see what I mean. has anyone else seen them?
    I'd love to know if hemp seed oil is ok. Anyone any ideas? It is supposed to have trace salicylates in but would that be enough to cause a problem? Also, does sunflower oil have to be cold pressed?
    I know I can test all these things out but I keep spending money and then if I give it to our toddler and I get it wrong we have 48 hours of hyperactivity again.

    Edna and Everyone, concerning flaxseed....it also contains a high amount of lignan, so if you are phenol sensitive also, or estrogen dominant, then you would probably want to steer clear of flaxseed and its oil. It is also a phytoestrogen which acts like a weak estrogen. And there is an ongoing debate on whether phytoestrogen are good or bad for the estrogen dominant person. Don't know about the sunflower oil, all I know is I react to it.

    For info: Canola (rapeseed) oil has fairly high natural sulphites so anyone who has sulphite problems stay well clear!!!
    Although I thought I had cut out all sulphite sources from my diet a few months ago I was still having sulphite reactions until someone on the Sulphite Board let me know that the Rapeseed Oil I was using was in fact another name for Canola oil... I stopped using it and the Sulphite reactions stopped.
    I use superamarket organic sulflower oil.. I do still get breakthrough sals symptoms all of the time so I will try to source some cold pressed oil (not sure where you get it!) and see if that helps.
    Interestingly enough Oilve oil is on my low sals "allowed" list from the hospital but I have BIG problems with it.

    Hi Lindy

    Interesting to hear that the rapeseed oil has sulphites. I can only use sunflower oil but way before I knew anything about my sulphites and sals issues I reacted badly when using rapeseed oil and now I know why. I cut it out way before my sulphites and sals problems but it just goes to show that I was probably reacting to the sulphites even back then.

    Take care

    I've been looking for information on flaxseed, as it is high in alpha-linolenic acid (Omega 3). I don't use olive oil, which is high in salycilates, but I'm fine with sunflower oil. Can't get Safflower oil in Portugal as far as I know.
    I've read that salicylate senstive people don't have enough of an enzyme that processes essential fatty acids (from these oils) and produce a type of prostaglandin.I know this is probably an oversimplification, but I thought that if our diet was deficient in omega 3s, prostaglandin production would be reduced (so salicylate sentivity increased because of a dietry deficiency?), so by increasing omega 3s we could improve our health (unless we can't digest it properly). Just a thought.

    Hi Tee. I found your post interesting as I have been giving lots of thought into the "fats" issue. I know I have a big problem with fat digestion. I can only have a smidgen. I can eat not fried foods without a reaction, and some of my relatives are so skinny, it's obvious they are having problems retaining the fats in their diets. We were experimenting with the fish oils, and I found they did have a postitive influence on me, but I just cannot get myself to take them on a regular basis (the fish burp) I HATE fish! And I still haven't gotten to the health food store to look for some decent tuna. Thanks for the thought. Let me know if you read any more info on omega 3, prostagladin and ss.

    Interesting, Rita about having problems digesting fats. It's also a problem I have. I think that's behind my egg reaction, but I'm not sure. Maybe it's common to people with sal intolerance? Or just another defective enzyme? I may try going back on flaxseed oil pills (no fishy burp). I'd stopped these 6 months before my hives resurfaced. I'm Just worried about amines. I'll let you know.
    There are milk products with added omega 3, but I'm worried they may use fish products (which I'm intolerant to).
    My husband (he suggested my current diet) is a GP (MD for those in the USA). He's not an allergy specialist, but he's just told me that the whole prostaglandin thing is much more complex than I thought, involves chain reactions, different types of prostaglandin, etc. Hmmm.

    Hi.

    We are having some success with rice bran oil - limited because of the bran bit (phenols?). But better than any other oil. Makes rice taste nice and creamy too.

    Didn't know flax is high in amines - so that's why I've been feeling better off it than on it.

    Where is evening primrose oil in all of this?

I did feel the fish oils had an effect on my temperment and well being.....but I'm one who has to be very careful with them because I'm a bleeder and the fish oils can exacerbate this condition. I haven't been taking them lately, because something was making my back ache, so I stopped all supplements for a time, but know I'm back on magnesium and centrum.

    Another thought on this is we have all had problems with oils....we have talked about this before...I can't tolerate vegetable oils excelpt in tiny amounts they upset my stomach and make me feel really strange.
    I now even pour the separated sunflower oil from the top of my cashew butter before I use it!
    Vegetable oils are high in omega 6 n ot omega 3 and an inbalance is not good..
    I've been aware for some time that my omega 3 intake is almost nil...
    It's just finding a clean source, one that does not contain gelatine or orange oils, lemon oils, vitamin E or rosemary! They seem to be too keen to add things.
    I'll let you know if I find a good source and if I get a hospital appt.

    Please let us know what happens Lindy!

    I agree, I'm bad with fats generally, though I do push my luck sometimes. And any eggy creamy mixture will make me really sick, raise my temperature, make me dizzy. I don't think I can digest them properly, but I'm OK with fats in small amounts.

    We need the omega 3s to produce prostaglandin, which are out of balance with our leukotrines (which also come from fatty acids). Salicylates disables the prostoglandin making enzyme, which is already defective in ss people, so worsens the imbalance between prostoglandins and leukotrines. (From"The allergy bible" by Gamlin and Brostoff).

    I don't know whether an imbalance of omega 3s to 6s exacerbates this problem?? The problem is that we cannot digest fats properly, due to the lack of enzymes, so I don't know how taking more omega 3s could help? Maybe by taking more omega 3s, slowly more gets through and the the leokotrine/ prostoglandin imbalance is addressed?? That would explain the mega doses taken at the Southampton trial. (Normally only 1g a day is recommended, and not more than 3g: see wikipedia)

    I've just started back on flaxseed, as I can tolerate small amounts of amines, but only 1g a day to see how I go.

    I rang the allergy clinic at Southampton and the next available appointment is Febraury (shows how many people have allergies!). I have taken the appt and will go along but am not willing to wait 4 months to do a trial on the omega 3 oil so will do some reasearch to see what dangers there are with mega doses and when I find a clean source I will start with a really low dose and work up and see what happens.

    Poor Lindy. I think I would rather stay ss than have to taste the fish oils! I take Trader Darwin's from Trader Joe's. It is molecularly distilled and only contains clear geletin and glycerin. Each of my gels contains 1000 mg which converts to 1 gram, so the patients were given an equivalent of 5 fish oil supplements per day! I'm afraid I'll bleed to death! I know they affect my clotting because, once I was taking them while I was on my period and my flow got heavier, then, one time I was at the end of my period, and I took a fish pill and I began to bleed again. So.........I'm afraid to take even more than one, but........don't know.

    Hi Rita
    I'm past the having periods age so no problems there!
    The ones I have ordered are also 1000mg and the recommended dose is 1 - 3 per day.
    I'm intending to take 1 a day at first (if I don't get any bad reactions) and then go up to the 3 and if this is ok will get medical advice before going up any further....
    The higher dose can't be "too" dangerous otherwise the hospital wouldn't have put the patients on the trial on it I guess....
    They were on 10g so were on 10 per day! Could I cope with that much fishy taste lol!
    I have been doing some reading up on this and it does seem to be all tied up with prostaglandins as Teefee said...(well done teefee).
    This looks like it is going to act like a "drug" for our symptoms -and more importantly the long term effects on the body of our symptoms -rather than acting on the cause... Aspirin (and therefore logically also salicylates in foods ) block the synthesis of prostaglandins.. as we are "deficient" in saliclyates as we are not eating/processing them then our bodies are getting flooded with prostaglandins which promote inflammation and leukatrines which has long term consequences for health. If we are not taking in enough omega 3 and are eating excess omega 6 this is also bad news as the omega 6 fatty acids also promote prostaglandin production.
    Omega 3 (DHA EPA) appears to work in a similar way to aspirin by blocking the production of the prostaglandins so if we can tolerate it can I guess it will take the place of the missing saliylate....which is good for our long term health and in very high doses -according to the Southampton study - appears to remove the symptoms of salicylate sensitivity temporarily.
    ????
    I'm sure I haven't got that quite right.. oh for a scientific brain...but it looks promising anyway...
    Here is a quote on excessive bleeding from Oregon State University:
    "Potential for Excessive Bleeding: The potential for high omega-3 fatty acid intakes, especially EPA and DHA, to prolong bleeding times has been well studied, and may play a role in the cardioprotective effects of omega-3 fatty acids. Although excessively long bleeding times and increased incidence of hemorrhagic stroke have been observed in Greenland Eskimos with very high intakes of EPA + DHA (6.5 g/day), it is not known whether high intakes of EPA and DHA are the only factor responsible for these observations (1). The US FDA has ruled that intakes up to 3 g/day of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for inclusion in the diet, and available evidence suggests that intakes less than 3 g/day are unlikely to result in clinically significant bleeding (3). Although the Institute of Medicine did not establish a tolerable upper level of intake (UL) for omega-3 fatty acids, caution was advised with the use of supplemental EPA and DHA, especially in those who are at increased risk of excessive bleeding (see Drug Interactions below) (1)."

    I have a real vested interest in this as it looks like an insurance against long term damage to the body. Without wishing to scare anyone I am watching my mother going downhill rapidly..She has undiagnosed ss and sulphite problems (she won't admit it). Looking back she has always had mild problems and reacts to many of the foods that I do.. she has only recently been mentioning to me all of the foods that give her problems...and most of them are high sals or sulphites.
    She now has really bad asthma and breathing problems, joint aching, diabetes, bad acid reflux "the collywobbles" when she eats certain foods and now has been told that her skin cancer has spread to her lymph glands....and has really bad lymphoedema in her arm and is in a lot of pain.
    However much I suggest that she cuts down on sulphite and salicylate foods she just keeps on eating them...even eating some fruit toast while we are out on saturdays which blatantly says sodium mebisulphite on the label...and taking the drugs that the doctor is prescribing. She now has 2 more drugs.. one for her pain and one for the acid reflux and is now being sick..I am guessing from the sulphur in the drugs...She reacted badly to some antibiotics that she had some while back and cant take aspirin or ibuprofen....
    I am watching her slowly killing herself...and I can't do anything....
    I am desperate to crack this both for myself and for the future health of my daughter who has already had one episode of the room spinning after a hot curry and is getting episodes of acid reflux...

    I suppose the only thing that sals can do is interfere in the proper functioning of the brain so we can't think any more. So those who have religion hang on to that (lucky you). Not nutcases, just reaching out for what will keep us afloat.

    I think that anyone with faith in something (anything) has a gift. But you can't choose faith, and I'm unfortunatley agnostic. I believe in logic. I'm an existentialist, humanist agnostic actually.

    It would be so nice to have a god to help us solve our problems. But all we have is fallible science, our brains and each other. Luckily for us, we do have these...

    J, it's just because I get really irritable when my sals are up and my sugar is low. You might want to make sure he eats lots of snacks in between meals.

    Dear Rita - he is foul when too hungry so I know you are right. Funny how the two seem to be linked.

    Love,

    Yes I'm a bit of a karma/nature-lover/cosmic person. Any kind of 'faith' support is great.

    I use Vertese omega 3-6-9 vegan oils (without gelatine because I'm a veggie who eats occasional fish and is having to climb down from her high horse to eat a less fuss-pot diet, now so restricted with sal-free - still refuse to eat meat though. Not eaten meat since 1990, although a crispy bacon might tempt me, lol!).

    Love Amanda xx
