An allergy diet isn't easy but it only takes a few days to get some results. It's the best way to figure out what is causing your food allergies. Although there are other ways, such as the pin test, it's much easier, inexpensive and safest way get quick answers. Just by eliminating whatever foods you suspect of causing your symptoms you can save yourself a lot of money and time.
One clue to look for is to start suspecting any food that you eat on a regular basis. Or if you don't eat that food for any length of time you start craving it. Any food you crave or eat on a daily basis should be suspicious because it becomes a type of addiction. Withdrawing from that food can cause withdraw symptoms, such as headaches, crabbiness, sleeplessness, diarrhea, constipation, and emotional or behavior problems.
THE THREE TYPES OF FOOD ELIMINATION ALLERGY DIETS
Single Food Elimination Diet This diet is simply what the title says. You will try eliminating the single food from your diet that you are suspicious of causing your food allergy symptoms. It's actually the easiest of the three diets but you may not get the immediate results you are looking for. It's usually the first diet people will try.
For instance; if you suspect you're suffering from a milk or dairy allergy make sure you follow the link and see what you'll need to look for as far as hidden ingredients and preservatives in processed products.
Multiple Food Elimination Diet
If you are suspicious of several foods or have no idea of what may be causing you to suffer from health, emotional or learning disorders then it would pay you to try the multiple food elimination diet. This diet is a lot more strict but worth trying. If you are suffering from a food allergy you will be amazed at the difference you will feel in a short period of time.
The idea behind this diet is to eliminate all foods that are most commonly causing food allergies. Once you get through the detoxification period you will slowly start introducing common foods known to cause allergies back into your diet. When you notice a symptom suddenly reappearing you'll know which foods to avoid.
Practical Rotary Diet
Even though the Practical Rotary Diet can detect which foods are causing your food allergy symptoms, this diet is a long-term diet. The Practical Rotation Diet consists of a 4-day cycle of various foods. Once you find which food to avoid this diet will help you stay well, and casually introduce the foods back into your diet and build your resistance to the foods you have been having a reaction to.
What To Eat On Food Elimination Allergy Diet
The Practical Rotation Diet is another allergy diet that will pinpoint which food you are having allergic reactions to. It is called a Practical Rotation Diet because you rotate foods over a period of 4 days.
The major advantage over this diet is it does for every food what the Food Elimination Diet did for one. This is because the problem food is eaten over a period of every 4-days, therefore you will notice either health, emotional or behavior symptoms resurfacing from that one particular food group.
Once you realize which foods are causing the severe reactions you can slowly introduce the food back into your diet. For example, if you notice Wheat is causing you to suffer from headaches you would want to completely stay away from all Wheat products until you detoxify your system then very slowly reintroduce your body to Wheat. Maybe start with a Wheat Cracker and see how you react. If you notice no reaction then after a few hours try a piece of Wheat Bread. Once you notice a reaction back off for the rest of the day and start with the Wheat Cracker again the next day.
Patience and persistence is the key to any allergy diet, but especially the Rotation Diet. It's best to plan this diet to last at least a month to completely understand exactly what foods you are going to have to eliminate and gradually reintroduce back into your diet.
