FAQ: "Can I take other supplements while following The Eczema Diet?"
A: If you are following The Eczema Diet, which is a low-salicylate diet, you will need to avoid supplements that contain salicylates for a period of 12 weeks. These include herbal medicines, herbal teas, wheatgrass and other green supplements, and multivitamins. If you have been diagnosed with a deficiency, such as iron or vitamin D, please continue to take them.
Taking other supplements during the elimination diet may interfere with your results, as most supplements contain salicylates, amines and/or hidden additives.
Not that fermented products, probiotics and fish oils contain amines (or histamines) so they will affect your results IF you are sensitive to amines/histamines. If you are not sure if you are sensitive to them seek advice from a health practitioner or book in for a consultation with Karen Fischer for professional advice.
