I am Dr. Cynthia Seaman, a chiropractic authority, with Part Two of how you can help yourself or your child effectively control food allergies. My practice, Seaman Chiropractic Center, in Chicagoland is an alternative health care facility where modern technology meets natural healing. In Part One of this topic, food allergies, I described what a food allergy is and how it can affect any system in the body, thus making a food allergy difficult to diagnose; for this reason I recommend an elimination diet. What most people don't know is we tend to eat the same favorite foods and doing this can create an allergic situation. So we eat a smaller variety and eliminate the most common foods that cause allergy in people. A starter menu begins with: MEATS: lamb,veal turkey VEGETABLES: carrots, squash, sweet potato and beets FRUITS: pear, peach, apricot, apple GRAINS: rice,barley,oat OTHERS: Arrowroot cookies, Zwieback, Rice crackers/cookies, non gluten pretzels The starter menu is suggested to eliminate foods in order to diagnose the condition. Juices can be consumed from the fruits listed in the menu; egg yolks are fine, soy milk and/or rice milk are good choices. There is a difference between intolerance and allergy (like lactose intolerance in dairy). This is not a allergy. It is the inability to digest lactose (dairy) due to lack of an enzyme. When your or your child's allergy is diagnosed, it is not the end of the world.
