The Hypoallergenic Diet is a clinically designed program to help you identify food triggers of chronic disease. It is diagnostic and therapeutic. The diet is prescribed in treating Migraines, digestive symptoms such as Irritable Bowel Disease, and other Autoimmune conditions such as Arthritis.
The hypoallergenic diet is also called the elimination diet. The diet uses food elimination and re-introduction to identify foods that can cause disease symptoms in sensitive individuals. The sensitivity is sometimes the result of the immune reactions, and sometimes the result of functional changes and enzyme deficiency.
