No More Food Allergies… Eliminating the Elimination Diet!
Food Allergies . . . can’t live with ‘em, can’t seem to live without avoiding every food under the sun. And just when you figure out how to replace wheat and dairy with spelt and soy . . . well, soon enough you are allergic to spelt and soy. What is that?!?!
It's annoying, that’s what it is!
Food allergies are part of total digestive ill-health. When the digestive system degrades so far it is called “Leaky Gut” or "Intestinal Permeability". Leaky gut is associated with so many health problems, it is difficult to list them. Easily associated are: Allergies, multiple chemical sensitivities, delayed food sensitivities, (not Type I Anaphylactic allergies that close airways), chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, joint pain, headaches, foggy mindedness, eczema, acne -- the list goes on. People that are challenged in this way have so many problems, they get tired of hearing themselves list them!
Further, it is socially isolating to have food allergies and so many health challenges. People don’t believe, they don’t understand, and so many social settings are built on food. Having pain and fatigue makes it hard to even leave the house to engage socially and then once there, the judgmental comments from well-meaning friends and family almost make it not worth going at all. I know. I have been there.
On a personal note -- after a long and disciplined history of food allergy challenges, and a very disciplined diet that spanned the better part of a decade, I thought “what if instead of identifying foods that bother me and eliminating them, I could heal my body and eliminate the fact that I am bothered!”
No one was doing it. When I shared the dream with some of my colleagues, they suggested that I was just too lazy to want to follow the diet (if only they knew how dedicated I was, and for how long!) Very few really seem to be doing it 15 years later, even though I have travelled the country teaching doctors how to “eliminate the elimination diet” in their patients’ lives. But the truth is, it works! And in fact, with all of the elimination diets that I followed, it seemed that all I got over time was sicker. Healing my body at the causal level is the only thing that ever made any sense.
If you knew me, personally, (and if you are reading this than likely you could benefit from developing a working relationship with me in order to find your own healing), you would see that I am vitally healthy! It is only because of this health that I was able to enjoy making countless rewarding contributions to natural medicine over the last twelve years. Otherwise, I would probably still be trying desperately just to get through each day.
I have worked with hundreds of patients over the last twelve years taking them through my total digestive repair protocol. The stories they have to tell are heart-wrenching. Their triumphs are like watching someone win the Lotto!
The work involves 6 – 18 months, on average (read not an overnight fix), of a fairly intense (read significant financial investment) nutritional supplement protocol, tailored to each individual but adhering to some core values on digestive health, which include:
* Improving the Digestion of Foods
* Decreasing Local Toxicity in the Digestive System
* Enhancing Healthy Bacteria
* Eliminating Overgrowth of Unhealthy Organisms
* Reducing Free Radical Activity
* Rebuilding the Digestive Lining
When you nurture all of these aspects at the same time, all day, over time you can “get a leg up” on the poor health of your digestive system and completely resolve many seemingly unrelated health conditions, including food sensitivities. Better yet, you can be done. Yes, that means you finish the work, and you move on with your life. Goodbye. Call me when you need a good multivitamin or fish oil supplement! Better yet, keep so busy living the life you missed out on for so long . . . maybe you don’t call me at all for awhile!
Note: While patients suffering with Celiac will always need to avoid gluten, they can rebuild their digestive system from the damage that so many years of gluten exposure caused them. This work applies to delayed food sensitivity reactions and DOES NOT fix Type I Anaphylactic Food Allergies that cause airway restriction.
It’s time to get your life back! Digestive health is the core of your well-being. Repair it for good.
