So, you’ve concluded that you do, in fact, have a food sensitivity based on your signs and symptoms. What do you do next?! You could go get a food sensitivity test done, which may or may not include all of the foods you typically eat, or you could follow an elimination diet to see which foods give you adverse reactions, and then avoid or limit those foods. The second option, the elimination diet, is much more convenient and provides a greater insight to how the foods you eat affect you. (Regardless, contact Nourishing Ways Center to help identify and treat food sensitivities!)
So, what is an elimination diet? Exactly what it sounds like! With an elimination diet, you remove certain foods for at least two weeks, then slowly reintroduce individual foods back into your diet and monitor for signs and symptoms of possible reactions. If a particular food elicits a reaction, you eliminate it from your diet. Seems easy, right? YES, but you’re probably assuming the food on this diet to be boring, bland, and the experience to be pure torture. Relax, you wouldn’t be the first person to assume such terrible things! Rest assured, the food allowed on the elimination diet does not have to be boring or bland, and we definitely don’t want you to torture yourself through deprivation! Let us show you how easy and flavorful this diet can be!
