Food Allergies Symptoms
Many people have symptoms of food allergies which affect more than one body system.
The more symptoms you experience, the greater the likelihood that your symptoms are stimulated by the foods you eat. Mold or yeast contaminants in foods or the chemicals and preservatives added to them add to the naturally occurring chemicals in foods.
This diet is designed to eliminate all foods which contain mold and yeast allergens, chemical contaminants and preservatives, the most common food allergens, and foods to which you may be addicted.
This elimination diet should be followed strictly, for 7 days. After this period instructions will be given based on your clinical response.

FOODS THAT YOU EAT ADDICTIVELY: DO NOT EAT Those foods that you eat almost every day. They may be causing allergies symptoms due to an addictive allergy. Remove these foods too from your diet. We will discuss them with you and those we suspect will be eliminated.
This diet must be carried out without any violations, otherwise it will be very difficult to determine its effectiveness. You may feel worse the first few days since you are breaking up the addictive food allergies, but toward the end of the week you should start to feel much better as your symptoms clear.
Some guidelines which will be helpful are: Eat only simply prepared, single foods raw, steamed, or broiled. Eat only one thing at a meal. Read all labels on packaged foods. Do not eat any meals out; if you must eat away from home, prepare your food to go. Make a list of foods you can eat and plan a menu so that you know what your next meal will be; this eliminates frustration and mistakes. Be patient and faithful to your diet;
Seven days is not a very long time and even a small indiscretion can set you back. Keep your food journal (one of the doctors will explain how.)
Remember, you’re going to a lot of trouble, so do it right. You will be glad you did.
