Allergies point to a sensitive constitution that reacts to a food, chemical, or environmental substance. Strengthening the constitution is paramount. Simply eliminating everything one is allergic to might be impossible. Some people also suffer from leaky gut, and the food molecules they think are harmless are entering the body in larger than usual molecules through a leaky intestinal wall no matter what they eat.
Research: The tight junctions between columnar cells reinforce the physical line of defense, and a thick mucus layer contains factors that trap particles, bacteria and viruses.
In reduced stomach acidity, large amount of improperly digested food along with excessive amounts of germs can enter into the small intestine, causing intestinal inflammation and damages the lining of the intestine, resulting in intestinal permeability and allowing the food antigen to pass through the intestinal barrier and enter into the bloodstream triggering allergic reactions.

She is an authoritative bottom line as to whether you should opt to go through the struggle with your child and other family members of eliminating foods from their diet. She's studied rotation diets, blood type diets, and knows the theories behind all these models and whether they will work for you. She also know when and how to refer you to get formal or alternative allergy testing.
Practitioner Emily Isaacson will let you know some of the pitfalls, what you can expect, and how to correctly do an elimination protocol for correct results.

This process is especially valuable if you suffer from digestive symptoms, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
