If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight.

πŸ“ FOOD INTOLERANCE APP (look for the strawberry)
I just discovered this app and it is more than worth the $6.99 – it is a more updated version of the German SIGHI PDF list. It contains more information than you can shake a stick at.

🌿 OXALATE APP I AM USING
The best option I have found is from the same developers as the Histamine app. It is an Apple only app but it looks like it is going to be very helpful. The basic color system (low/med/high) rating is free but if you want actual numbers, it is also $6.99.

🚦OXIPUR (IOS only)

There is also a fantastic Facebook group with a tremendous amount of information and research that I am finding invaluable.

MY TOP 3 WORST INFLAMMATION TRIGGERS
These are not the same for everyone and in 90% of people they don’t trigger a reaction – but if you are constantly dealing with being bloated, headaches, muscle or joint pain or digestive distress – they may be worth considering as potential inflammation triggers.
