The St Petersburg elimination diet is used as a diagnostic mechanism to determine if any of your symptoms are related to a specific food. The inability to tolerate foods, also known as sensitivity or intolerance, induces chronic activation of the innate immune system and gives rise to a variety of inflammatory responses.

Our Elimination Diet Plan in St Petersburg consists of removing potential reaction causing foods from your diet for three to four weeks, enough time to completely eliminate the offending foods from your system. If you do not feel better after three weeks, then food is not causing your symptoms, and we begin to look for other causes of your symptoms. If you do feel better after three weeks of the elimination diet, then food is the problem, and we begin a process of adding foods back into your diet, with Dr. Hermann’s guidance, to determine which food items may be responsible for your symptoms. *Individual results may vary
