The good news is that he ate plenty of broccoli without issue after I did a home treatment (we have a long history with broccoli, my kid's most favorite food in the world.) I also attempted to treat him for blueberries and cumin which we have yet to try.
Our last treatment was for Salicylates, as they're natural chemicals found in most fruits, vegetables, and various other food and non-food items. According to this WebMD site, Some people have a low level of tolerance to salicylates and may have reactions if more than a small amount is consumed at one time. Symptoms of a salicylate allergy vary but may include:
- Asthma-like symptoms, such as trouble breathing and wheezing
- Nasal congestion
- Changes in skin color
- Itching, skin rash, or hives
- Swelling of the hands, feet, and face
- Stomach pain
