No More Food Allergies: Eliminating the Elimination Diet!

By Carrie Louise Daenell, ND – LiveWell Center

Food Allergies. Can’t live with ‘em; can’t seem to live without avoiding every food under the sun. And just when you figure out how to replace wheat and dairy with spelt and soy… well, soon enough you are allergic to spelt and soy. 

Food allergies are part of total digestive ill-health. When the digestive system degrades to a certain point, it is called “leaky gut.”  Leaky gut is associated with so many health problems, it is difficult to list them. Easily associated are: allergies, multiple chemical sensitivities, delayed food sensitivities (not Type I anaphylactic allergies that close airways), chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, joint pain, headaches, foggy mindedness, eczema, acne… the list goes on.  

Further, it is socially isolating to have food allergies and so many health challenges. So many social settings are built around food. Having pain and fatigue makes it hard to even leave the house to engage socially and then, once there, the comments from well-meaning friends and family almost make it not worth going at all.

What if instead of identifying foods that bother you and eliminating them, you could heal your body and eliminate the fact that you are bothered?

I have worked with hundreds of patients over the last 12 years taking them through my total digestive repair protocol. The stories they have to tell are heart-wrenching. Their triumphs are like watching someone win the Lotto!

The work involves six to 18 months on average and many nutritional supplement protocols tailored to each individual but adhering to some core values on digestive health, which include:

  • Improving the Digestion of Foods
  • Decreasing Local Toxicity in the Digestive System
  • Enhancing Healthy Bacteria
  • Eliminating Overgrowth of Unhealthy Organisms
  • Reducing Free Radical Activity
  • Rebuilding the Digestive Lining
When you nurture all of these aspects at the same time, all day, over time, you can permanently and comprehensively repair your digestive system and completely resolve many seemingly unrelated health conditions, including food sensitivities.

Note: While patients suffering with Celiac disease will always need to avoid gluten, they can rebuild their digestive system from the damage that so many years of gluten exposure caused them. This work applies to delayed food sensitivity reactions and DOES NOT fix Type I anaphylactic food allergies that cause airway restriction.

It’s time to get your life back! Digestive health is the core of your wellbeing. Repair it for good.
