The Elimination Protocol for Food Allergies and Sensitivities

The Elimination Diet is a way to determine your food sensitivities from home without any medical tests or procedures, to help you get a sense of your health (we still recommend working with a doctor and getting regular blood tests during this process).

Step 1: Choose a food group to eliminate.

Common foods to avoid are Wheat Gluten, Grains, Dairy, Eggs, Soy, Legumes, Sugar, Processed/Fast Food, and Alcohol.

Step 2: Eliminate that food group from your diet for three weeks, while journaling what you eat and how you feel everyday.

Step 3 (Optional): Re-introduce that food at the end of the three weeks, and have a fairly large amount of it for three days. Again, write down how you feel each day.

Step 4: Decide how each food affects how you feel and make changes to your diet with the help of your primary doctor / food specialist.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 1-4 for each food you want to test.

Please do this with your doctor's approval and a friend's support.
