Fibromyalgia and Samter’s triad patients find it almost impossible to identify salicylate-free menthol-free toothpaste using the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) content declaration.
Fibromyalgia and Samter’s triad sufferers look for help online.
In particular fibromyalgia patients finding out about guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand need to know what products contain salicylates and what product descriptions indicate hidden salicylates. People suffering from Samter’s triad need the same information.
Caution is advised when using oils, extracts, gels, essences and tinctures. During guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand, you should only use a salicylate-free menthol-free toothpaste, which should be a toothpaste without mint flavouring / mint oil.
Quote: “Menthol, like mint oil, would be absorbed through the oral mucous membranes within 15 seconds. Both ingredients are the strongest guaifenesin blockers and equally compromise the guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand.
Guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand is based on avoiding salicylate.
During guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand it makes sense to use a salicylate-free menthol-free toothpaste. This claim is misleading, however: Toothpaste without mint flavouring for guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand. Not all mint oils contain salicylates.
The frustration that guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand only allows the use of toothpaste without mint flavouring / mint oil is probably caused by copying the author online and lack of knowledge about chemical and botanical connections.
Almost all mint oils contain many salicylates, but not all mint oils contain salicylates.
Basically toothpaste without mint flavouring is rare.
Mint flavouring and menthol are usually obtained from field mint and peppermint.
In Europe we associate the minty flavour and menthol with freshness.
Minty and menthol type flavourings can be found in almost all toothpastes and mouthwashes, chewing gums, ointments, shower gels, etc. Menthol is derived mainly from field mint.
Field mint, like peppermint (Mentha piperita) contains a salicylate.
For people using guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand to fight fibromyalgia and Samter’s triad, off-limits ingredients include field mint and peppermint with L-menthol, and also products based on wintergreen plants.
Methyl salicylate, the methyl ester of salicylic acid, is isolated from the leaves of wintergreen plants by steam distillation. Products with wintergreen flavouring cannot be used by people suffering from fibromyalgia and Samter’s triad.
Anxious fibromyalgia and Samter’s triad patients looking for a toothpaste without mint flavouring ask: Where does salicylate-free Chitodent® get its taste from?
Fibromyalgia and Samter’s triad sufferers have had to stop using so many taste ingredients, that they describe the taste of Chitodent® as terrific.
Fibromyalgia suffers undergoing lengthy guaifenesin treatment by Dr Amand have often had to give up many familiar taste experiences. It is no wonder that they – like Samter’s triad suffers – long for taste.
The salicylate-free menthol-free toothpaste, Chitodent® does not taste bland when you brush your teeth; it is mint-like, slightly sweet and fresh.
The taste sensation of Chitodent® toothpaste comes from its specially reconstituted, salicylate-free flavouring.
The oil on which the flavouring of Chitodent® is based was analytically ‘taken apart’ and reassembled (reconstituted) but without the ingredients that cause problems for homoeopathy patients.
The reconstituted flavouring of Chitodent® contains no salicylate, no methyl salicylate, no menthol and no essential oils with salicylates.
