Have you ever heard of oxalates? If so, you may know them as the culprit behind kidney stones. But did you know that they can also cause many other health issues? This article with Elliot Overton will explore what oxalates are and how they affect your body. We'll discuss how to flush out the toxins faster and what symptoms to look out for when experiencing a "dumping" of oxalate.

What are oxalates?

Oxalates are naturally occurring molecules found in plants and animals. They are a type of organic acid, which means they contain both oxygen and carbon. Oxalates are a component of various foods, including spinach and rhubarb, as well as certain supplements like vitamin C.

Symptoms of high oxalate toxicity

While there may be some obvious symptoms of high oxalates, such toxicity can also be asymptomatic for decades before they start becoming a problem. Here are some signs to look out for:

'Safe' Keto Foods that contain high amounts of oxalates

If you are suffering from oxalate poisoning, it's important to know which foods contain high amounts of oxalates. Spinach and beets are two of the most common culprits. Broccoli and other leafy greens can also cause problems for those dealing with oxalate issues. Cauliflower, peanuts, soybeans and peas are also high in this compound. Tomatoes and peppers fall into this category as well. Nuts and seeds are also known for having high levels of oxalates in them; these include cashews, almonds, macadamia nuts and sunflower seeds among others. Grapes and raisins should be avoided by people who have been diagnosed with kidney stones or other conditions that could cause their bodies to absorb too much calcium from food sources like these

What is oxalate dumping?

You may have heard of oxalate dumping, which is when you eat foods high in oxalates and you get some unpleasant symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. This can happen when your body absorbs too many oxalate-rich foods at once.

If this happens frequently, it can be dangerous because it causes the calcium that's supposed to stay in your bones to move through your body more quickly than normal. This can lead to bone loss or kidney stones that form from the extra calcium passing through your kidneys.

How to flush out the toxins faster

If you're suffering from oxalate dumping, you may be wondering how to flush out your system. This can be accomplished by drinking plenty of water and following a Carnivore Diet. Focusing on an all-meat diet can help eliminate plant toxins containing high amounts of oxalic acid.

Focusing on zero-carb foods such as:

  • Ruminant meats, especially beef
  • Salmon
  • Bacon
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Tallow

Symptoms of oxalate dumping

When you follow a Carnivore Diet meal plan you will be dumping oxalates. While this presents differently in people you may experience:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle pain

The Bottom Line

Oxalate dumping can be extremely detrimental to your health. We recommend consulting a doctor if you think you may have high oxalate levels in your body. It’s important that you start taking steps towards getting rid of these toxins like following a total elimination diet such as the Carnivore Diet or the Lion Diet as soon as possible to prevent serious health problems later on down the line.
