Food can either harm us or heal us. When it comes to our gut health foods that continue to cause harm and inflammation can actually cause us to have allergies and food sensitivities!
Those with allergies and digestive issues should absolutely do the elimination diet to help them both determine which foods they should avoid and to help push the reset button.
Eight foods account for about 90 percent of all food-allergy reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, nuts, wheat/gluten, soy, fish, and shellfish.
The elimination diet will cut out all common allergens, including:
Eggs, in some cases
Usually, all packaged, processed or fast foods
Most elimination diets last for a few months. It’s believed that antibodies — the proteins your immune system makes when it negatively reacts to foods — take around three weeks to dissipate. So this is usually the minimum time needed for someone to fully heal from sensitives and to notice improvements in their symptoms.
When doing the elimination diet preparation is key to your success. It is a long and boring process of discovering which foods you are reacting to and monitoring your symptoms .
Those who complete the elimination diet are so glad they did because they notice more energy, better sleep, increases mental clarity, stronger digestion and for those who suffered from allergies often notice their allergies go away completely! Even seasonal allergies over time have been seen to completely go away once someone has dialed in their diet to exclude all those foods that triggered their immune system to create the allergies in the first place.
In the next episode, #44, Dr. Megan Saunders discusses how you can use this diet to eliminate allergies!
