I wrote super long detailed response but after hitting reply it disappeared.
I will try to recreate it:
Many months ago Cleveland clinic initially thought I had Mastocytosis. They put me on 3x the prescription dose of allergy meds. After 6 weeks – no effect. I had anaphylactic response to Chromolyn. Even got Ketotefin from Canada – no effect. Tested normal in all histamine level tests (I took 5 of them).
I definitely have leaky gut. Definitely have candida.
The salicylate sensitivity is new. Just 2 weeks ago I was eating a jar of almond butter a day. Now just a teaspoon gives me asthma attack. The salicylate/histamine diet is VERY un=friendly for candida. Bread, rice, sugar. Hence the super restricted diet.
I even get symptoms from brussel sprouts. Just this morning I tried eating sprouted cooked oat brand and was rewarded with hours and hours of throbbing colon with migraine (still have throbbing headache).
Whenever I deter from this diet I get asthma attacks, dizziness to where I can’t stand up, brain fog extreme (can’t add 2 + 2). How can I branch out? I would LOVE to eat more food. I’m constantly hungry. Except 20 minutes after when I have a migraine or can’t move.
I’ve seen 6 natropaths, 3 accupuncturist, 2 homeopaths, chi masseuse, reiki master, and the list goes on – not counting all the western docs. Every single one of them has the answer until they either give up (yes, 2 natropaths gave up on me!) or I run out of $$. We’ve had to take another mortgage out just to keep paying off my bills.
Taken over 2300 tests (yep, tried to keep count for a while). So hearing that the 98% negative is worthless since tests are inconclusive sends me into spiraling depression. Then EVERY test is inconclusive and its too overwhelming.
Am reluctant for the SF722 since it is based in olive oil which is super high in salicylates. I literally have boxes upon boxes of medications, supplements, oils and tinctures.
Here’s a small sampling of what I have taken. Would love some advice. Been on the merry go round so many times I don’t even know where to begin anymore.
