Readers Comments -The Salicylate Handbook
"The Salicylate Handbook is very easy to understand and I highly recommend it. I bought two (one for my doctor so that he could better understand what I was trying to explain about my symptoms) and one for myself. I will be buying more."
"This book is so well researched, yet easy to read. A very practical book. I am so glad I found this book. Anyone who has allergies but tests say no allergy , you must read this. It could change your health."
"The right book ordered at the right time. Race's book has completely turned my life around. Thank you Sharla Race!"
"This book was a perfect read for me, being a recently diagnosed saiicylate intolerant myself. The book gave me lots of insight and in many cases, reaffirmed what i already knew or suspected. Everyone should read it!"
"Informative. Based on scientific research studies as well as the experience of a salicylate intolerant survivor. To the point and filled with ideas that were extremely useful for myself and family members who also suffer from extreme salicylate intolerance. My physician wanted it's lists for her 'aspirin sensitive' patients who have other 'odd sensitivities'. Great information. Will purchase for my daughter and mother."
"Found the book to be concise and to the point. Told me what I wanted to know about salicylate sensitivities and how to manage the condition. No fluff and no filler to pad the book. Just what I was looking for as a first look at what might be a potential problem."
"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 have found your book excellent, thank you, and very interesting."
"I downloaded your book tonight and have just skimmed through it, it looks wonderful, full of common sense 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."
"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!)."
"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..."
"Unbelievably well researched and thought out."
"A VERY informative, helpful book. The listing of safe foods to unsafe foods, on a scale of 0 to 7, is particularly helpful."
"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..."
"Great clarification of this entire issue...super easy to read and understand...I will use this as my go to resource for a long time..."
"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."
"I was having real trouble eating any foods that are high in salicylates which, unfortunately are many of my favorite foods. I ask my doctor and got a shrug. I looked into various internet information and did not find much help there. I had actually looked for a book on it and somehow missed this one. A few months later I ran across this book and got it it. The amount of detail and research that must have gone into this book is staggering. I got a great deal of help from this book and can now enjoy the foods I had always enjoyed - just a little less of then. What a gift this book is to anyone fighting with salicylate sensitivity."
