    I wanted to start taking Turmeric and then read it is salicylate and some people can not tolerate it. How would you know if you can not tolerate a salicylate? I am assuming it has something to do with salt. My dr. told me to increase my salt b/c I have very low blood pressure.

    I just started Olive leaf extract two weeks ago and read that is a salicylate too. Could that be making me feel worse?

    I have been rid of the sick feeling for months now and was just fatigued adn tired...now I am back to feeling sick and flu-like so was looking for something to help with those symptoms. What a continuous battle!

    Thanks..I think I did too much the week before. My Father in law passed away and I was running around...talking to people going out to eat every night etc...basically living a life of a "normal". I thought I was cured! then the crash came hard core. I hate that my battle can not handle anything.
