@Gondwanaland brought up Salicylate sensitivity after I said that I'd been getting very sick eating avocados. I've noticed similar symptoms from other high-salicylate foods: instant depression, breathing problems, a strange taste in my mouth, dry mouth and excessive thirst, strange-smelling urine (not sure if that's related?). I had some pure honey before bed a few nights ago and crashed severely the next day. I've noticed a small improvement in fatigue from cutting out high-sal foods. The thing I'm wondering is whether I should cut out coconut oil too, and if there's anything I can replace it with? Coffee on its own boosts my mood and gives me euphoria; ditto with MCT oil. However, adding in coconut oil instantly makes me depressed. I'd always thought this was just 'die-off' but it's been two years. I'm on a Keto diet and do find the fat in the coffee helps me fast for a few hours and I don't get the same effect from coffee on its own; I can't have butter because of lactose, and MCT oil is too strong.
