Having a Pacemaker and two Titanium Heart valves I am loathe to take anything which contains Silica because I have done, not checking medication that I buy and discovered that it definitely affects the area where my pacemaker is situated, this has happened on a number of occasions. I find it difficult to obtain Glucosamine without Silica in it and do not want to take it with Cod Liver Oil as I do take Warfarin and I suspect this combination would affect the efficacy of the Warfarin, also I take Flaxseed for Rheumatism which can also affect the Warfarin efficacy, but it seems that taking the Glucosamine for Arthritis and Flaxseed seems to be helping, the only problem is to find Glucosamine without Silica and that is quite a problem. If there is someone who could inform me of a brand which does not contain Silica I would be very grateful as it definitely helps the pain in my Knee which I suspect is Arthritis.
sulfite/sulfur allergy causing migraine headaches
ALLERGIC to sulfur dioxide- and it causes me migraine headaches.. I found out by eating fresh grocery grapes. I may also be allergic to, and/ or instead of sulfur dioxide, which is sprayed on the grapes to preserve them, it could be the naturally occurring sulfites that grapes produce after being picked. Although some grapes after being soaked in white vinegar to remove the natural preservative sulfur dioxide did not give me a migraine. So, I'm not sure if it's a type of grape that makes more sulfites as it ages on the vine and after picked, OR if it is sulfur dioxide. I just do not eat fresh grapes anymore.
