Hydrogenated Oils and Salicylates

If it just says Hydrogenated and a plant name and oil then it has sals in it, so do NOT use this!

Example: Hydrogenated Castor Oil= NOT sal safe

The process of making an oil Hydrogenated still leaves the salicylates in the oil, so don’t use oils that are hydrogenated unless they are a part of CROWS: Corn Rice Oat Wheat Soy oils πŸ™‚

    This past week I’ve been going through some products that I had set aside; and was wondering about the hydrogenated oils of plants in them and if they were Sal safe. This clarified it for me. I just started the Guaifenesin Protocol about a month ago and have referred to your blog frequently. Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into this. It has been a blessing to me!

      Thank you Jackie!!
      Yep, it is something that I still have to look up, I still cant remember which is which! LOL πŸ˜€ Other things are just second nature, I am sure this will be easy to remember one day too πŸ™‚
      And I am so glad this is helping people!! Thank you for telling me πŸ™‚

    Hi Christine! So does hydrogenated coconut oil have sals in it? I’m not sure since coconut is a tree. Thanks! We are still fine tuning the elimination of sals!

  3. Christine says:

    Hi Yvonne! Yes, coconut is a plant. SO, things like almonds, aloe, stevia, they all come from plants and contain sals. You’ve doing great! Keep it up! πŸ™‚

      I just read on your blog that if it says “nutrition facts” it was ok. I had been reading the nutrition facts on a Swiss Miss hot chocolate box that had hydrogenated coconut oil in it. Since it is a food, I am thinking that it is safe…am I correct? Thank you so much! I have been checking In on your web sight and find it so helpful. My husband is the one with fibromyalgia and I just want to do all I can to see him regain his health. I am so glad you love God…He is awesome and we think that He is the one who led us to Dr. St. Amand’s book. We have tried so many things over the past 25 years with no results but now we are so hopeful that at last we are on the right track. We so appreciate your efforts to keep us informed. God’s blessings on you and your family.

        Hi Yvonne! Thank you for your words of encouragement, it’s much appreciated! <3

        Yes, hydrogenated coconut oil has sals in it. Much like coconut oil has sals in it. You can have these things in foods, but not on your skin. So yes! You are correct, since it's a food, it is safe πŸ™‚ Good job!

        And I totally believe that God brought me to learn about the protocol too. Not just for my health but to help people all over the world with theirs too <3

          Thank you, Christine! Now, one more question: My husband and I have eaten smoothies for breakfast that contained freshly ground flax seed. Since flax oil is a no, no…can we still continue to eat this as a food?

          • Christine says:

            flax is very high in sals. Putting it into a smoothie that you drink down, concentrates everything in the smoothie. Normal food amounts work because you are chewing everything with other foods, that makes it less concentrated. use less than 1 tsp in smoothies should be ok. I have a post on this for more info: http://christinescozycorner.ca/seeds-and-salicylates/

            You can use psyllium husk for roughage if that is what the flax is for. Psyllium husk is sal free πŸ™‚
