An elimination diet is an eating plan that
omits a food or group of foods believed to cause an adverse food reaction, often referred
to as a “food intolerance.” By removing certain foods for a period of time and then
reintroducing them during a “challenge” period, you can learn which foods are causing
symptoms or making them worse. We often think of reactions to food as being a rapid allergic
reaction, such as when a person has an anaphylactic reaction to eating peanuts and their throat
swells up. However, there are other ways our bodies can react to foods that may not be
so immediate and may or may not be tied to an immune system response. Food intolerances
may be triggered by various natural compounds found in foods or common food additives that
can cause reactions through various mechanisms in the body. Because people are genetically
unique, and because we each have different eating patterns, elimination diets must be
based on each unique individual. Eliminating the most offending food or multiple foods
and substances all at one time is the most reliable way to find out which foods may be
contributing to symptoms. Clinical experience has shown that an elimination diet is one
of the best tools for identifying food culprits and is very safe, as long as a variety of foods
are still eaten supplying all the essential nutrients
