True Stories – Healing Food Allergies

Janet (name changed) came to see me after years of digestive and allergy troubles. She was so reactive to most foods that she was only eating a white and brown diet, as in simple starches and meats. She desperately wanted to figure out why her food allergies increased and if there was anything that could be done about it.

Her history revealed a childhood allergy to tomatoes and the slow development of other food allergies over time. Things were so bad she would even react to lettuce. She also suffered from anxiety, insomnia, constipation, migraines, fatigue, and she needed caffeine to get through the day.

We ordered a thorough health screening including a baseline blood panel, adrenal health, gut health, food allergies and micronutrient levels. Janet was on board and willing to do all the tests ASAP. We discovered nutrient deficiencies, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, dysbiosis and inflammation.

Because of her food allergies, we couldn’t change her diet right away. Instead, we started with supplements to heal her gut and improve digestion, supplement her deficiencies, lower inflammation and histamine, and to support detox. She also stopped caffeine intake. Though the initial focus was gut healing and not foods, I gave her a nutrition plan just so she could get used to the idea of eating healthier foods and how we were going to challenge her food allergies after healing her gut.

At her follow up, she surprised me by starting the food challenge process ahead of schedule. Better yet, she was already seeing improvement in her food allergies and the food she was able to eat. It took some more time, but she was eventually able to eat tomatoes, the one food allergy she had from childhood that we thought would remain for life. She is now a proud veggie eater and has maintained her health and gained joy and happiness in the process.

If you are suffering from food allergies or other digestive issues, you can also experience health like Janet. The problem may be much simpler than you though. Detailed labs an a whole-body approach can be the key that you’ve been looking for. If you’re ready to get started, call us at (702) 258-7860 and I’ll be there to help.
