 its been almost a year since i commented about my true sulfite allergy,and food sensitivities. i been studying nutrition,and functional medicine at the miller school of medicine in miami. all this to further my understanding of al the hell i been suffering from food sensitivities. I HIT PAYDIRT!! and i want to share im sure this info will help many from this forum.  turns out that my body was not creating or absorbing ion sulfates. sufates are one of the major routes the body uses to detoxify.and specifically sulfites,and sulfur..the body needs sulfates to convert these .so its nearly impossible to supplement orally without risking many side affects. so i learned through a dr who treats people with this condition often refered to PST deficiency. (an issue with (phenol sulfur  tranverase ) i found a major way to safely supply me body with sulfates. sulfates are tolerable to most people,because they are already converted into the safer form sulfate. i starting soaking in epsom salts,. but big warning here!!! i overdid it and went to the hospital .i placed a pint of salts into a bath for 25 minutes and it was way too much. i studied a dr rosemary waring who using this method to treat people with my condition. many ways to apply the epsom salts.but one simple way was startig out very slow,and i mean very slow not to give the body too much at once and it starts to over oxerdize,and metabalize faster then the body can process all this the backup ,from dieoff.can piosion you as it did with me. so i started just one tablespoon a day into the bath for 20 minute soak and increas one table evry day or so as long as there are no bad sides affects like,hyperactivity at first and later or next day,mood swings,and irritablity..all the time increasing ,and fine to miss some days..to incrase over a couple months to build up to about 2 cups.at this point now just even one month into it,im able for the first time ever in my life to eat at a restaurant without being ill !! and for sure iit is the epsom salts. my hearing has returned,my taste and smell has returned,and no more moood swings.. check out PHENOLS,PST,and SULPHUR METABOLISM by dr rosemary waring on the whole low down on this discovery. unfortun ately she is from the uk . im from the usa.and theres just further proof here how well educted these drs in europe are on food sensitivities ,and i cant even find a dr here in the usa that have a clue about sulfite issues. i have soled my mystery of suffering for 40 years,and this dr has all the answers,and the solutions ..hope this info helps many of you peopl from the forum and beyond. share and please feel feel to sk,im excited to share..i been able to help a few people already with my same condition,so it wasnt just some weird thing that happened to me.if you see her sight she expians it all in complete detail..its a couple hours reading,.and completely life changing!! go get your people,and make sense of all the madness.

I suffer from a pretty severe sulfite allergy. It seems as though every food that contains them makes me break out in a rash. Can anyone here help me out? Do you all know of some way to detect if foods have sulfites in them? Is there some concentration level in food that won’t provoke my allergies?

Welcome to the forum skiinggirl.
 
There is a website that gives you information on how to calculate how much total sulfite is in a portion of food.  It also has good explanations of the processing that puts in sulfites and which foods have a lot.
 
You can read most of Rick's book online for free, which I recommend to start with.  He has a paper book you can buy, but you don't need it unless you have unusually severe problems.  The main difference is a huge volume of tables of sulfites in specific brands of foods and medicines.  Try starting with the online book for a while, until you understand a lot about the chemistry and calculations.  I did buy the book, but I needed information that was not available anywhere else about medications.
 
Also you can read a lot posts in the forum by putting key words into the search box at the top of the page.
 
I've often posted about my allergist's recommendation for keeping a good food journal with dates, times, what I ate, drank, medications, and reactions.  Then I had to do challenge testing of the ingredients in my trigger foods.  You can read more detailed explanations by using the search box.

Hey skiinggirl86. I know exactly how you feel. I have a pretty severe sulfite allergy as well, but I’ve been dealing with it for quite some time now. If you’re questionable about a particular food or drink, you can easily test whether they contain sulfites or not. I’ve ordered sulfite detectors online and used them at home. They have really helped me to determine which foods and drinks are safe for me.

i have had a true allergy to sulfites for the past 4 years. 8 anaphylactic shocks from exposure,sent me to the emergency room fighting for my life.. 2 months ago i learned that my allergy to sulfites was becasue of not enough sulfate in the body. i added sulfate in my body by soaking in an epsom salts bath and my sulfite allergy is nearly gone. i can totally handle a meal outside my home on an occasional basic without feeling ill. turns out i had PST deficiency.. born with the issue,gets worse over time . its inspired my blog and i hope it helps others as it has changed my life. www.mikemacaluso.com check out epsom salts

I also have sulfite allergy. It all started 12 yrs ago when I was taking Bactrium (sulfar base drug) after surgery. Dr. also added another antibiotic and with 1-2 days my whole body broke out in a bright red rash, like I had been severely sunburned. Begin to have elvated fever, white blood cells count dropped to low. I ended up back in hospital. At first thought it was the 2nd drug that caused this but a few months later I got a UTI and the dr put me on Bactrium and within few mins of first dose I was in ER getting an antidote to counterreact the Bactrium. I have been able to stay away from the drugs. In chem lab some raw sulfar got on my bookbag by someone who thought it would be cool to do something like this. I protected myself and wore gown, mask, and gloves and did not touch it, but it got put on my bookbag and within mins of it touching my skin I was having chest pains and clawing my self. I now have to keep an Epi-pen with me. Then 3 yrs ago I was eating some dried fruit and my tongue started burning and broke out in rash and was severly painful. I didn't have a clue at first what it was caused from until I started looking at the labels and saw sulfites. I have to stay away from lots of food and for the last year I have had problems bad. In Dec. started out with strep throat that wouldn't go away. And from then on even if I'm taking meds like for yeast and using a prescription mouthwash it want go away. Not strep throat but the burning of my tongue and painful rash all in my mouth. It will clear up for maybe 10 days with treatment but then comes back worse than before. I am a nurse and have also studied up on this. I was speaking with a dietitian that has same problem. It is the artifical sulfar/sulfites that causes most problems. We all have to have sulfur as a mineral to survive, but it is in the natural state that we had handle it. The artifical kind like the sulfites or the sulfur salts that is what we are allergic to. I have had cultures done on my mouth and everything came back normal but still problems. Gonna have to have allergy testing done. Espom salts is full of sulfur and I stay away, because just from me touching the box for my husband I broke out.

hello widfire, epsom salts is sulfates,this is what the body uses to deal with sulfites and sulfur..sulaftes are in the final most converted safe phase. very severe sensitivity! pure epsom could for sure irritate skin,its need to be greatly diluted. like a full bath to one tablespoon for starters. but this is aassuming you have sulfate deficiency in the liver. that usually goes hand in hand with people who have the lablels. add,adhd,chemical imbalance,autism etc,. its automatic if you have this you have sulafte issue. dr rosemary waring, beest in the world on the subject, pst deficiency..
