the hypoallergenic diet
The Hypoallergenic Diet, aka Elimination or Brown Rice Diet, is a diagnostic and therapeutic diet based on research and clinical successes by Naturopathic and Medical Doctors.
For more details see printable handout.

how can a hypoallergenic diet help you?
The purpose of following a Hypoallergenic Diet is to determine if there are any foods in your diet that may aggravate or be the cause of your specific condition or symptoms. In addition to reducing or eliminating your symptoms, you will also become more aware of which foods optimize your own individual health.

what is a food allergy?
Food allergies, just like other allergies, are controlled by your immune system. The immune system uses antibodies (protein complexes used by the immune system) to attack any foreign material in your body. It is unknown as to why you may be allergic to one thing and someone else may have no reaction to the same thing and may even have an allergy to something entirely different than you.

what is a food sensitivity/intolerance?
Sensitivity to food is much more subtle and difficult to determine than a frank allergy. Food sensitivities do not necessarily involve responses from the immune system. Rather they are mediated by physiological responses to the offending foods and are undetectable by blood tests or skin scratch tests. Food sensitivities are a common trigger for a wide range of physical and emotional disorders.

Here is a list of food groups that need to be elimated for four weeks. Please note that the following order may be altered depending on your specific situation and what your doctor may prefer.

o Dairy (milk, cream, cheeses, butter, yogurt, ice-cream)
o Red meats (beef, pork)
o All gluten-containing grains (what, spelt, rye, barley) i.e. breads, pasta, pastries…
o Corn, tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, potatoes
o Eggs
o Caffeinated beverages (coffee, black tea, sodapop)
o Shellfish, catfish
o Soy products (soy beans, tofu, soy milk, soya sauce, miso, tempeh, TVP, frozen vegetarian schnitzel)
o Peanuts, pistachios, cashews
o Strawberries
o All added-sugar (brown/white sugar, etc..)
o All fruit drinks high in refined sugars

What makes us bond as friends is a mystery, but friendships form some of our most important relationships.

Maybe others are up to speed by what you mean by hypoallergenic diet. If you give me a list of foods you eat and/or foods you dont eat, i can come up with suggestions. I also recommend you check out the blood type diet: http://www.dadamo.com/

Hi guys,
I'm trying to help my gut heal itself, by eating a hypoallergenic diet for 4 weeks.

Does any one have any good meal suggestions for breakfast? (Keep in mind I only have a microwave & fridge right now!)

Thanks!
Holly
