THE ELIMINATION DIET STEP- BY- STEP

1. FAMILY HISTORY - We ask you to look into your family's background with the help of a prompt sheet to properly assess a possible history of food sensitivity.

 

2. WHAT TO EXCLUDE? - After assessing the severity of the symptoms, we can then determine the degree of elimination we need to do (strict, moderate or simple approach) +/- any food proteins (gluten, milk, soy, egg).

 

3. ELIMINATION - We eliminate the necessary foods for 3-4 weeks until we have no symptoms for 5 straight days. Children often respond faster as their smaller bodies quickly metabolise and remove the affecting chemicals. We also treat micronutrient deficiencies and supplement with probiotics to support essential gut repair.

 

4. CHALLENGES - we then begin challenging each chemical group (amines, salicylates, glutamates) and food protein (if necessary) separately.

 

5. REINTRODUCE FOODS TO TOLERANCE - Once the problem substances have been determined, we will then begin gradually reintroducing foods to the individual's threshold. As children grow and mature they will usually be able to tolerate a greater chemical load. We can reassess your child every 6 months to try and reintroduce more foods.
