Knowledge is Power: Resources for an Elimination Diet

In my last post I mentioned the elimination diet which is a method of testing for food allergies and sensitivities.  In this post, I present several sources for more information on conducting an elimination diet. 

It is a way of eating for three weeks that can help you isolate and identify foods that are potentially causing you a variety of health issues, including gastrointestinal problems, eczema, and our favorite, joint pain.  Ideally, you want to do this with the care and supervision of a registered dietician or doctor… It can be tricky and overwhelming if you do not know what you are doing.  Personally, I would especially not go it alone if you have colitis, crohn’s disease (IBD) or similar. 

I can help, but I am no doctor, so any of my information is just that: information.  It is not meant to cure or diagnose you; just arm you with knowlege.  Knowledge is power and the best treatment for autoimmune disease is a combination of knowledge, open-mindedness, tenacity, and an equally knowleageable, open-minded, supportive, and dedicated team of medical professionals.  Good luck and feel free to ask questions, I will do my best to answer or at least,  point you in the right direction.

You can also contact the dietician I have been working with and who oversaw my own elimination diet, Michelle Babb.  She is very nice and extremely knowlegeable.  http://eatplaybe.com/about.htm
