The Food Elimination Diet

The Food Elimination Diet with subsequent Oral Food Challenge Test
(OFCT) is the most powerful tool in my practice! It is amazing how
inflammatory our food can be. The inflammation is resultant from an
immune system reaction to foods in our intestines. The diet is the
elimination of the top 10 food allergens for 21 days (it takes that
long to quiet the immune system). Then the OFCT comes into play.
Reintroduce one food every 3 days and consume that food 3 times the
first day in significant quantities. If you are sensitive to the food,
you will have a reaction. This reaction may be immediately after
consumption to 7 days after – though 90% occurs in 3 days. More to
come….
