Elimination Diet

Elimination DietThe Tampa elimination diet is used as a diagnostic tool 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 a variety of inflammatory responses.  Serious health problems related to hidden food allergies can include: (*Individual results may vary) – Resource for elimination diet – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elimination_diet

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

We also offer environmental allergy testing. If you have any questions about our elimination diet contact our office today at (813) 902-9559.
