Elimination Diet and Food Allergy

Posted on March 14, 2018

An elimination diet is when you remove a wide number of foods from your diet and then slowly reintroduce them. The purpose of it is to identify not just food allergies, but also sensitivities and intolerances. Doing an elimination diet is a slow, careful process. For some, an elimination diet can be very helpful, because it enables them to see for sure what foods cause reactions and symptoms.
