Re: Luck with Food intolerance/sensitivities?
How are you doing the elimination and challenge diet and what foods are you eliminating? There is a certain way to properly do the diet to find food intolerances. The symptoms you have can most definitely be from a food intolerance. If you haven't already, try completely eliminating all gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, and sugar from your diet for 4-6 weeks and keep a journal of your symptoms. After the 4-6 weeks, reintroduce the eliminated foods ONE AT A TIME! This is the most crucial part! Pick one food and eat 2 servings of it on the first reintroduction day. If symptoms come up, stop eating the food until they go away. Try introducing the food again. If symptoms appear again, eliminate it from your diet for 6 months. If after 3 days a reintroduced food causes no symptoms, you can continue eating it and reintroduce the next food. Yes, it takes 3 days to reintroduce 1 food! I know it's time consuming but it's worth it.
Also, I don't know what your digestive complaints are, but l-glutamine is a really good supplement that helps heal the gut of inflammation caused by food intolerances. Probiotics are another really important supplement to support the digestive tract.
