MoonDragon's Nutrition Information: Diets
THE ROTATION DIET FOR ALLERGIES






PURPOSE


Although some people have a reaction soon after ingesting a particular food for the first time, most food allergies often develop slowly. The reason for this is that if you consume the same foods daily, your body eventually develops an intolerance to them. Then, rather than nourishing the body, these foods provoke harmful reactions.

  • MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Allergies





  • DESCRIPTION


    Once you have identified and avoided an allergenic food for 60 to 90 days, you may be able to reintroduce the food without any adverse reactions, as long as you maintain a rotation diet. The basic principle behind the rotation diet is that each type of food is to be consumed only on one out of every four days. For example, if you eat beans on Monday, you would not eat beans again on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. If you eat salmon on Friday, you would wait at least until Tuesday before consuming any other fish. Rotating foods in this way will not only make you feel better, it will also help to stabilize your weight.






    BASIC INFORMATION


    Although you may feel that this list of foods does not offer much variety, there are numerous fruits and vegetables available, in addition to a variety of fish. After two weeks on this cleansing diet, you can once again begin to eat a greater variety of different foods, but on a rotating basis - eating each type of food on no more than one out of four days. Use the sample menus below as a guide to help you put together daily menus rotating among different foods. Of course, if you are sensitive to any of the foods listed, substitute a food that agrees with you. Once you start following this program, you should start seeing an increase in your energy level in a week or less.




    NUTRITIONAL ADEQUACY


    If planned carefully, allergy diets are generally adequate in all nutrients. The exception would be the milk-free diet, which is inadequate in calcium and will likely require supplementation. The elimination diets can be deficient in calories, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals; therefore, long-term use is not advised and monitoring of nutritional sufficiency is essential.

    NOTE: These diets should only be utilized under the guidance of a "nutritionally trained" health care provider familiar with treating food allergies.
