9: The Elimination Plan

Jul 29, 2019 | Season 1, Uncategorized


An elimination “diet” is a short-term plan where you eliminate potentially problematic foods and then reintroduce them one at a time in order to pinpoint which foods are causing specific issues. Do you have stubborn digestive issues? Weird skin flare ups? Fatigue that isn’t relieved by a full night of sleep? It may be time for an elimination diet.
