Elimination Diet

What is an Elimination Diet?

Some foods may be irritating your body every time you eat them. An elimination diet is a simple experiment that helps you to discover which foods may be causing problems and which foods are not. Our program is designed to calm inflammation and balance the body. Once the body is calm, and the disease symptoms diminish, it becomes noticeable to a person when a “trouble” food is eaten and the symptoms come back.

If you are experiencing these symptoms then it’s time for an Elimination Diet:

  • Weight Gain / Weight Loss
  • Fatigue / Lethargy
  • Foggy Thinking / Memory Issues / Lack of Focus
  • Moodiness / Anxiety / Depression / Racing Thoughts
  • Aggression / Hyperactivity
  • Gas / Diarrhea / Constipation / Bloating / Cramping
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Reflux (GERD)
  • Recurring Nausea & Vomiting
  • Muscle Pain / Joint Pain / Chronic Pain
  • Headaches / Migraines
  • Sinus Congestion / Chronic Coughing
  • Asthma
  • Skin Rashes / Eczema / Psoriasis / Hives
  • Acne
  • Heart Palpitations / Rapid Pulse / Rapid Breathing
  • Heartburn
  • Numbness / Tingling
  • Seizures
  • Osteoporosis
  • Anemia
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Extreme Picky Eating Behaviors in Children (will only eat bread, noodles, etc.)

What are some of the benefits of this diet?

Well for starters, most people lose a bit of weight. A lot of it is water weight at first from inflammation in the body. Then, eventually, as your body becomes more efficient and your digestive system more effective, you will begin to lose excess fat. People who are underweight may gain weight. Many people note that they simply have more energy and feel great. Most do not want to go back to their old eating habits because they feel so good. Nearly every aspect of your physical and emotional body is altered when doing this program. 

The Elimination Diet is all about becoming in tune with your system. You will become more aware how different foods affect you so you will eventually learn how to eat for health, instead of out of habit. Since we are all unique individuals, The Elimination Diet enables you to customize your diet with the foods that work with your body!
