How does the elimination diet work?

It is used in the treatment of certain disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome, migraine, eczema, distractibility, and it is very good. It is usually applied for 2-3 weeks, but the duration varies from person to person. The foods we prohibit during the diet are added to the diet one by one. After adding a single food, the person is followed for 3 days. If the person does not have any complaints, it is waited for 3 more days. Then, after a total of 6 days, we include a new food in the diet and this protocol continues in this way. If intolerance to a food occurs again, that food should be removed from the diet for another 3 weeks.

Things to Consider in the Elimination Diet

Since the elimination diet is a challenging diet, it is necessary to supply nutrients
in advance. In addition, it is the right thing to do with the support of a dietician.

they should be replaced with an alternative food that can be substituted. After the this diet,
a personalized nutrition program should be organized and followed. You can get help and
