Readers Comments - Salicylate Handbook
"“I do think you must know that you are an angel to me. You have helped me so much and I hold the utmost respect for you. No one knows what this is like and you have overcome so much. Everyone around me knows of your handbook now and so many have told me that it is a blessing...”
“I've recently developed salicylate sensitivity. I say 'recently' but all the symptoms of various ailments I've had down the years now make sense - post viral syndrome, sinus problems, joint pains etc... "
“Thanks so much for this information... Becoming more aware of this sensitivity has helped me a great deal."
“I have had a bit of a nightmare following an auto immune disease many years ago, and this damaged my immune system and I consequently became Coeliac a few years later. That was just the start, and chronic sinusitus followed and three extensive surgical procedures – then I read your handbook and discussed with my consultant (who has started researching this further) and started on a low salicylate diet (to add to gluten free!) and within months, all the symptoms abated and its been a couple of years now feeling well and no further problems."
"It is amazing to me that food can be so harmful, but I learnt that from you, so thank you!”
“THANK YOU for your handbook on salicylates. I downloaded it today, parked my 3 yr old in front of the tv (desperate times call for desperate measures!!) and read your book. It was so enlightening and helpful! Thank you!”
"I downloaded your book tonight and have just skimmed through it, it looks wonderful, full of commonsense and hope! Many thanks. I know it will be a great help to me in the months to come as I get to grips with what is happening to me. Best wishes to you.”
“I have found your book excellent, thank you, and very interesting.”
“Thank you so much Sharla for writing this book! It is exactly what I was looking for - there was so little assembled information about salicylate intolerance (except for your site, which is where I found the book!).”
“Unbelievably well researched and thought out.”
“The best part of what you have put together is that it is hopeful -I no longer feel overwhelmed and alone.”
“I just wanted to thank you for having compiled the handbook, which finally helped me understand what was happening in my body.”
“Your book is absolutely brilliant and has helped immensely.”
"I have long considered you the foremost and best authority on salicylate problems. I have Change Your Diet and the Salicylate Handbook and both are like food bibles in my household!”
"Thanks so much for all your hard work and ability to put it out here for people like me that haven’t had a great deal of help from our health service!”
"Thanks for going to the effort of putting your knowledge into print and sharing your knowledge with others. We have got through so many doctors/therapists and they just don't seem to get it with the salicylates.”
“This should be required reading for health practitioners the world over.”
“After a near death anaphylactic reaction I was finally diagnosed with Salicylate Sensitivity... I have researched until the cows came home LOL.. but your hand book is my BIBLE.... thank you.. thank you.. thank you.”
“Sharla... I spent 20 years being told I was mentally unbalanced with a side order of severe eczema... boy were they wrong...“
“Your list of foods classified into different levels of salicylate content is really helpful - I will be seeing my consultant next week and will take this with me to show her.”
