I was recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis, which is apparently caused by some sort of allergen(s). I went through the test where they prick your back 78 times to test for various food allergies. I tested positive for 17 items, but even after I eliminated those from my diet, I still had the problem with dysphagia. I then decided to try eliminating the Melaleuca vitamins I've been taking for several months, and that seemed to take care of it. I've never had any problem with any other vitamins but those.

Does anyone else take Melaleuca vitamins, and if so, have you ever had a reaction to them?

I know someone taking these, what exactly were your symptoms?

I am no longer surprised by reactions to anything. You can react to the smallest amount of anything that you eat or touch or simply breath in depending on your particular situation.

I have taken Melaleuca vitamins for over 10 years and not had any kind of reaction....but everyone is different. There must be some component of the vitamin that you react to.
