The Elimination diet is a therapeutic approach to adverse food reactions. It focuses on reducing inflammation and toxic burden and promoting a healthy microbiome through the implementation of a gluten-free, dairy-free diet that is rich in phytonutrients. Without any calorie restriction, the Elimination diet promotes the identification of food triggers and awareness of our body’s reaction to food.
The Elimination diet is known to have various benefits, but on the downside, is a restrictive diet in which common foods are avoided. Therefore, providing information about food alternatives to your patient is essential for the patient’s compliance.
