    Hi there, I am new to this forum thing:)
    Over the last few months I have realised I am sensitive to salicylates. When I eat foods high in salicylates I get severe migraines and other things like sinus pain, loose bowels etc, the one that bothers me the most is the horrible migraines!
    Since eating foods with non or low salicylates and using products the same I feel much better.
    I have been going to a lady that specialises in natural medicine and supplements. I had been living on panadol and antihistimines and it seems my liver is not functioning as it should be. I have been recommended to take future biotics, daliy liver support but I am worried that with all the salicylates in it that it could make my salicylate sensitive symptoms worse? ingredients are milk thistle seed extract,picroliv,turmeric root,dandelion root,beet root,alfalfa leaf, artichoke leaf,ginger root extract, I feel that I would probably tolerate salicylates more if my liver wasn't in such a bad state but I'm scared that taking a supplement full of salicylates in to help my liver might make things worse?? Does anyone have any advice about helping the liver and if you think I should take the supplement or not? Thanks I really appreciate all the help I can get;)

    Hi Ange,

    You are correct the salicylates in the daily liver support will worsen your issues. I know I tried it.

    To naturally activate your liver you need to eat red delicious apples as they cleanse and strengthen the liver. I buy mine at Woodman's grocery store. One a day will suffice.

    Also, first thing in the morning cut 1/3 of a fresh lemon. Pour water in a coffee mug or glass. Place the remaining lemon in tin foil and place in the fridge. Squeeze the juices from the 1/3 lemon into the mug or glass. Drink the lemon juice water slowly (approx. 5 minutes). The lemon activates the enzymes in the liver.

    Please read my thread on healing as it will point out other methods to help you out.


    Please note that lemons are considered to be moderate salicylate therefore this advice may not be suitable for all members of this forum who are unable to tolerate moderate levels of salicylates.

    Please remember drinking water as noted in my healing method is a key as the body stores salicylates in our liver and our kidneys - the water allows the body to flush out salicylates in the kidneys through the urine. You need to minimize your intake of salicylates and increase your body's ability to remove salicylates from the body.

    As noted in my healing method - During the day take a 5 oz. Dixie cup and fill it full of water. Drink it with small sips. Repeat 2 more times. The 8 to 10 glasses (8 oz.) of water a day is a fairly accurate rule to live by. Small sips as believe it or not the human body can only process water at a small clip so those who guzzle their water most of it goes straight to the kidneys for urination and not used by the body to transport vitamins and minerals. REMEMBER you can drink too much water and it can be harmful to you when you do. Be smart. But it is true you can urinate salicylates out of your kidneys by drinking water. I use tap water filtered by Du Pont carbon filter and whole house filter. You can buy a filter that adapts to your kitchen sink faucet from Lowe's, Menards, Home Depot, etc.).

    Removing the salicylate build up in the kidneys will also aid the load of salicylates on the liver. And of course minimizing alcohol consumption as alcohol is Hell on the liver.
