Determine Your Food Allergy At Home

How Do You Determine Your CORE food allergens?


It is a simple process that you can do at home no charge. The majority of food allergies/intolerances are delayed sensitivity reactions. Elimination is the most accurate way for you to determine the delayed sensitivity reactions. To do this, you must, eliminate the suspected food intolerance completely from the diet for 2 weeks then reintroduce and watch for reactions for 4 days (see below).  Your core food allergen/intolerance complicates the healing process by increasing the overall body inflammation.   Once you remove the core food allergen your body's inflammation will reduce, and sensitivities to other foods will decrease as well.  


The main 4 food allergens are: wheat (gluten), corn (zein), dairy (casein), and soy 


Next common after that are chocolate, peanuts, eggs, tomatoes and beef


THE TEST: Eliminate the suspected food intolerance completely from the diet for 2 weeks then reintroduce and watch for reactions for 4 days (see below)

•     Wheat=colitis, bowel irregularity and high blood pressure

•     Corn=neurological symptoms (like tremors, ticks, shakes, seizures)
