The Elimination Diet

Posted by on Apr 20, 2011 in Acupuncture, Weight Loss | No Comments

Have you ever wondered if your food is negatively impacting your health?  Have you noticed that you feel tired or sick after eating certain meals? Although acupuncture and herbs can do a lot to reduce pain, fatigue, and indigestion, acupuncture can only help to a certain extent if the root problem is related to your diet.

The elimination diet is one way to determine if certain foods are causing your body problems.  The concept is simple: eliminate inflammatory foods for 3 weeks, and then reintroduce larger quantities of the inflammatory foods to see if your symptoms return. The elimination diet is a great way to determine if your body is having a hard time digesting wheat, soy, corn, dairy, or other common inflammatory foods.  However, it can be daunting to do the elimination diet–or any other modifications to your eating behavior–without additional support.
