How is one able to best manage a salicylate sensitivity while being paleo? I know many fruits are high in salicylate, but does anyone have any tips or experience in any other regard?

So don't eat fruit. I rarely eat fruit for sugar reasons. Nothing in Paleo dictates that you HAVE to eat something specific.
Edit: This looks like a good website for lists of foods low in Salicylates. http://salicylatesensitivity.com/about/food-guide/fruits/ And many things on the list are paleo acceptable. :-)

The salicylate sensitivity forum is pretty helpful; then you'll have to Paleo-ize their suggestions as best you can. I am testing glucosamine sulfate now. Not paelo, but seems to be helping. I am eating summer produce without problems.

Ive been Paleo since Dec 2010, Felt Great, until Nov 2011, when i started to feel fatigue, and an extreme eczema attacked me every since, kept researching for reasons why, I upped my Fat and lowered my Fat i DID Zero carb, low , med and also High. nothing worked, and Before Paleo i had no issues with eczema, just the minor acne, and going paleo, I introduced all animals and fats. Since learning about Salicylates and amines ive had to tone it down and now i only eat White fish and Salmon and Green beans (so-so-paleo?) Ive cut out Grains, Dairy (even butter!) and now i feel great my eczema flares have dropped, (its only been 2 days on this diet) I am also sad because this diet is very limited, but its worth it, because eczema is a real life killer. I LOVE AND HATE PALEO! But i think most people on here that dont do well on Paleo need to look into Salicylates and amines intolerance. Especally the people who get Skin problems while going on paleo. I even quit smoking marijuana! but i hope as i heal maybe i can introduce my weed again and live a normal life.
I also want to mention Salmon may contain Amines, mostly on skin, same with chicken, so avoid the skin.
Its hard because the only veg i eat is Green beans, I will try white potatoes soon, and see how that goes, because considering the Autoimmune thing and eczema i want to stay away from it.
But ya Potatoes and rice are going to be my next step for further exciting my diet lifestyle.
