I always say there is no one diet that works for everyone, but that may not be exactly true.
Everyone needs to try this diet at least once in their lives– regardless of weight, health or age.
The “diet” I am talking about is a hypoallergenic challenge/elimination diet. This diet takes out all of the common food sensitivities and inflammatory foods. These foods commonly cause many chronic symptoms like headaches, depression, insomnia, joint pain, muscle pain, skin issues, autoimmune disorders, ADD/ADHD and fatigue. Becaue it is not a calorie restricted diet and, when done appropriately, is packed with nutrients, everyone should do it at least once in their lives.
Why These Foods Become Problematic?
Frequent antibiotic use, not eating enough variety of foods, stress, pesticides, lack of exercise, eating processed foods, alcohol, caffeine all contribute to impaired digestion. When food is moving through the digestive tract too slowly (constipation) too quickly (diarrhea) fermenting (gas and bloating), the lining of the gut is compromised. This chronic inflammatory process causes food to cross the gut lining and move into the bloodstream. Food is meant to move in one direction. Large food particles are not meant to cross the barrier out of the gut. When this happens, the body is not able to recognize these “foreign” particles and begins attacking them. This is why some foods that would be considered healthy, are no longer healthy for the individual. Surprisingly, it is not uncommon for people to have food sensitivities, but not have ant digestive symptoms! This is why you need to do the diet (and possibly a blood test) to see how your health can improve.
You owe it to yourself, and your family, to find out which foods are preventing you from feeling your very best.
