Oxalate sensitivity is often self-diagnosed by eating high oxalate foods after a low oxalate intake . There's, as of now, no medical diagnosis for oxalate sensitivity. Oxalates can cause systemic inflammation. Some symptoms are:
- Kidney stones
- Digestive issues
- Chronic candida
- Thyroid issues
If you have these symptoms, why not try lowering your oxalate intake? You don't have to completely eliminate oxalates from your diet (it might be impossible). But if you are continuing to eat high oxalate foods, it's an easy switch to reduce your intake and see how you feel. You might want to keep a food journal. That's how we found out Chuck (hubby) gets migraines when he eats tomatoes.
One of the biggest causes of oxalate sensitivity is leaky gut and gut issues. So you're going to have to get your gut under control to conquer this.
Here's some high oxalate foods you'll want to reduce.
The top highest oxalate foods are:
- Cooked spinach
- Raw spinach
- Rice bran
- Buckwheat groats
- Miso soup
A few more tips:
- Drink a lot of water (half your body weight in ounces)
