An elimination diet eliminates foods linked to food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances for a set period of time, usually 28 to 30 days.

Gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, nuts, soy, and nightshade vegetables are all restricted at once.

The moderate approach is the elimination diet in reverse. The diet eliminates gluten and dairy, among other foods.

Why is an elimination diet necessary? Allergies, sensitivities, intolerances. Food sensitivities and intolerances are different.

The immune system produces IgE antibodies in response to a harmful food component. IgE antibodies stimulate histamine release, causing immediate symptoms.

Food sensitivity also involves the immune system but is triggered by IgG, IgA, or IgM antibodies.

Food intolerance is a nonimmune reaction to a food. Enzyme deficiencies, gut bacteria overreaction, or inflammation may cause it.

Our gastrointestinal tract (gut) is the only internal system that consumes food and drink. Chronic exposure to compounds our bodies react to can cause significant damage.
