One of the biggest root causes of autoimmune conditions is food sensitivities; and conversely, one of the fastest paths to healing from autoimmune conditions is identifying and removing foods that are causing your immune system to over-react. In this 5 minute interview, Mary Ruddick, CNC and I discuss her recommendations for discovering your own personal food triggers.
Step 1: Remove all inflammatory foods: sugar, grains, fruits and honey (all starchy carbs), dairy, eggs, nuts and nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, potatoes and eggplant) — for 30 days
Step 2: Add foods back in, one at a time and 3-days apart, and keep a food-mood symptom journal. Notice mental, emotional and pain and digestive issues
Step 3: If your symptoms don’t improve, get tested for IgG food sensitivities.
Step 4: Heal your gut with a diet like GAPs (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) which emphasizes nourishing foods and broths
