Part of this natural journey to balance my immune system is looking for anything creating an immune or inflammatory response.
I have the results of the food allergy and sensitivities tests back.
I’m amazed at the results. No surprise that cow’s milk and egg whites showed as allergies. This was found back in December. So they will never be reintroduced into my diet.
The sensitivities are a little more complicated. If we are able to heal my gut then the foods that are creating an immuneresponse should be able to be reintroduced in moderation in time.
A rotation diet will be necessary so that I’m never consuming too many at one time.
I already ate “clean” but these results show a large number of foods that I consume regularly that are not good for me right now.
So as of 9/9/19 I’ve eliminated all of these from my diet in hopes that I’ll see a reduction in inflammation.
Here’s the list of things causing an immune response. Some higher response than others, but I’m willing to be very cautious right now and temporarily eliminate them all. Even if pumpkin spice season is gone for me this year.
The good news is there’s a lot of other foods that are not creating an inflammatory response. And, knowledge is a powerful thing.
I have more labs coming back soon and a follow up on September 20th.
Progress. Knowledge. Power. Hope.
