Food Elimination Diet
Not sure if you're allergic? We could help you find out!
Are you looking for a clinic to help test for food allergies? When people think of food allergies, their first thought is likely to be peanut anaphylaxis; however, most allergies are not nearly as severe as peanut allergies. In fact, many people are slightly allergic to certain foods without knowing it. When a person is only slightly allergic to a food product, their reaction could be minor indigestion, gas, or slight skin rashes. These symptoms may not arise until hours or even days after eating the irritating food, however, which could make it difficult for a person to realize that they are allergic. Make an appointment at our
weight loss clinic in Denver to find out what food you are allergic to.
How a Food Elimination Diet Works
You may be asking, "How do you test for what foods you shouldn't be eating?" Individuals who suffer from chronic digestive discomfort and other intestinal health issues may be suffering from food allergies. One way of discovering these allergies is through
IgG food allergy testing, but a food elimination diet may help, as well. A food elimination diet is a trial-and-error process where specific foods are completely removed from the patient's diet. If their symptoms cease or diminish, the food might be reintroduced to see if the symptoms return. If they do, the food is permanently eliminated. The same process can be applied indefinitely to different food products until any number of food allergies are discovered and removed from the individual's diet.
