DIET FOR ELIMINATION OF ALLERGENS

For a period of 12 to 16 days, eliminate all known common allergens from the diet ie wheat, gluten, corn, milk, dairy produce, egg, salicylate, shellfish, colorings and preservatives, nuts, alcohol.

Symptoms may worsen for the first 4 to 8 days due to withdrawal or a pre-existing infection; therefore it is advisable to commence the program during a period of low social activity.   Following the initial elimination phase of the diet, we will present to the body the challenge of various foods listed above.   Each food is reintroduced one at a time, and eaten in increasing quantities for 3 days.   If no symptoms are noticed, move on to the next challenge food.   Please record all symptoms and refrain from eating any foods that cause the slightest degree of discomfort.  Allow one day of recuperation after experiencing a reaction before testing the next food.

Test these foods for allergic reaction in the following sequence:

Dairy products – 3 glasses of  milk daily and if no reaction then test yoghurt, then cheese.

Wheat                –  eat 3 Weetbix daily with pear juice

Gluten cereals  –  oats, then barley, then rye

Eggs                    –  egg white introduced in small quantities, like omelette.

Yeast                   –  a teaspoon of yeast or Vegemite daily.

Salicylate           –  4 glasses of fresh orange or tomato juice daily.

Artificial color  –  lolly snakes, raspberry lollies, jubes.

Shell fish

Nuts

Alcohol              –  beer, wine, spirits

Always test first, the food that you are missing the most.

You may use cold pressed sunflower, safflower and linseed oil, and salt.

All water must be boiled or filtered before use.  Plain mineral or soda water may be used as desired.
