White and apple cider vinegar and Salicylates

Vinegar is very high in salicylates. It IS an acid, but because of it’s high salicylate content, topically,Β  DO NOT risk blocking your Guaifenesin from working! Many have blocked on it in the past!

Apple Cider vinegar is the concern here, we haven’t heard of anybody blocking on plain white vinegar πŸ™‚

Char’s motto totally applies here: When in doubt, do without!!

Having vinegar in foods, etc is fine, as our bodies digest out most of the sals enough to not worry about it. HOWEVER! If you are taking it as a drink, or as a supplement, then it WILL be too much and you will likely block on it.

I have heard about using it to burn off corns/ warts, but it’s unlikely at that concentration that it will do the job. Certainly, if you use one drop of it on ONE wart, ONCE a day, you are unlikely to block on that amount, but use caution! Consider another solution for these irritating skin problems: go to the doc and get them to burn it off in ONE application of pure salicylic acid, and block for just ONE day! πŸ™‚

    hi there, thanks again for the information.

  2. Is balsamic vinegar always a no-no or are there some types that are ok?

    • Christine says:

      Balsamic vinegar is a no no as a supplement, or if you are using it to change something, etc. If you are using it in food, on a salad, etc, that’s fine, that’s a normal food amount and wont block you. The concern here is the concentration.

    Hi Christine, love your blog! I am a bit confused (and frustrated) while trying to determine just how much is a safe amount to use on a daily basis of certain foods, and I don’t want to get PARANOID about this whole thing. If I have to stop something altogether in order not to risk blocking, then I’m ok with it, but if I can be fairly sure that a certain amount used daily is not going to block me, then I’d love to not have to give up these things: approx. 2-3 Tbsp/day of coconut oil used instead of butter on Ezekial bread, and for frying (I have actually cut back to about 1 Tbsp/day), full-fat coconut milk (not every day) and about 1/4 c of coconut flakes almost daily (is there a limit?), 1 tsp apple cider vinegar in water first thing in the morning and maybe later on another one, 1-3 squares of 85% chocolate daily (it’s high in salicylate I’ve learned), and I’m now avoiding my formerly beloved Stevia like the plague since I’ve read your info on it. I was very surprised to see your recipe for chocolate mousse with reg. coconut milk and cocoa on your website, but you probably consume far less of that stuff daily than I do, lol. As far as I know, I am not allergic to Sals, so can I break down all of this stuff on a daily basis, or should I just avoid at least the coconut oil in such large amounts as well as the cider vinegar in water (since I’m taking it to “do something” which is to alkalize my body). I didn’t suspect I am blocking from any topicals; however, after just reading what you said re gums and esters, well, I’d better recheck my stuff…maybe that’s the answer.

    The reason I’m so frustrated is because I’m almost a month into 1800 mg/day of MDRP LA Guai and see no consistent worsening of symptoms. I’m also confused re getting advise to only add some FA to the 1800 mg to see if that’s my dose, and then reading your advise today that says to keep titrating up by 300 mg increments to a maximum of 2400 mg/day. I was told that Dr. St. Amand adds the FA (200/300 mg?) to the 1800 mg (once or twice a day?) to see if that starts the reversing; I’ve read his book twice but don’t remember seeing this. I need to know what to do by May 29, as it will be a month on 1800 mg with no visible progress. I know this is a lot of info Christine, but it’s been eating me up lately. Many thanks! Deborah

      Hi Deborah!
      Man, it sure feels complicated at first hey? Sorry you are one of those having struggles. Hang in there, I’ll help you through this <3

      Ok, as far as coconut ingredients, you're fine. It dosnt look like you're overdoing it. Esp in other food! Having a few Tbsp in your coffee first thing int he morning on an empty stomach, might block.

      The ASV, on an empty stomach, would make it more concentrated so that the sals might bypass the digestive system and could block you too.

      Yep, you have to be crazy diligent with all your products if you are not being mapped. Dr St amand has the luxury of experimenting on his patients and gets it right because he's mapping them regularly to see how they are doing. Those of us not being mapped on a regular basis by someone who knows there stuff, we have to be much more careful and stick to the book for titrating dosing.

      Once you get everything sorted out with your sals, you might start clearing and not have to worry about increasing your dose tons! Hang in there, let's deal with the sals first and then worry about dosing ok? Just stick to what you're taking now. When did you start the guai?

      oh, also, are you on the HG diet? That might change things!
