Allergy Rotation Diet
« on: May 24, 2006, 10:27:54 AM »
I was searching for some natural anti-fungals and found this.  It might help for those who are fighting food intolerances and candida simultaneously.

 WHAT IS AN ALLERGY ROTATION DIET? ANTI-CANDIDA DIET?

    If it is not feasible to do the testing, it is helpful & diagnostic to follow an allergen rotation diet for at least 4-6 weeks & look for any kind of improvement in your symptoms. The greater the improvement, the more likely are allergies the culprit. If you have many & severe allergies, you may actually feel worse the first 3-5 days as you have withdrawal symptoms from the allergens, after which you will improve.

    Below is an allergy rotation diet you can follow which excludes the most common problem items which are dairy, wheat, gluten, eggs, sugar, yeast, coffee, alcohol, dried fruits, diet & regular sodas. This diet will also work as an anti-candida (yeast overgrowth) diet, if you know or feel that applies to you.

    With this diet, eat only the allowed foods on each day, day 1-4, then start over again continuing the rotation. Should you feel decidedly better on this diet, carefully & gradually introduce foods ( only one new food every several days) when you finish the diet to see which foods provoke the old problems. At this time it will be helpful to keep a food-symptom diary.

Ok, the above list is HUGE, and I kinda don't get it.
If we can eat anything on day one from the day one list, then day two, etc., then start over again after day 4, is that enough time of elimination of certain things to determine allergies?
I read the other thread that made more sense - eliminating certain groups of things for a LONG time and then carefully reintroducing them.
The other problem with the list is that we don't eat SOY, PORK, or SHELLFISH.  Soy because it's bad, pork and shellfish because Dh says they're not food. 
So, which one would be better for us to do?  We are looking to find answers to dry itchy skin, dark circles, crusty scalp, low energy.  I hate to think it's gluten, but it just might be.
HELP!

I have known a lot of people who have used the rotation diet method to identify allergies with good results.  It takes the full 4 to 6 weeks to see the results from this, and then you begin introducing the foods that are NOT included on these lists. 
You could easily avoid soy, pork, and shellfish, imo, with this diet.  There are plenty of other options each day.  For instance, DAY 4 allows Sweet 'n' Low and there is just NO WAY I would give that to someone. 
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;    Titus 2:13

I'm really thinking about starting this allergy-rotation-diet with my family. I myself, have been on an anti-candida diet for 4 months now and I really think I should involve my family. 2 of my children have Tourette's (and a third one starts with some symptoms),  sometimes it's better sometimes worse, but I read the thread about it, and so I think Yeast and/or Allergies might be the problem and one child has ADD.
As I live in Mexico, and don't even know where I should ask for allergy-testing I would like to try this diet. But I have a question (there might be more coming ;)):
Is it really important to keep the days apart? Aren't they all allowed foods? So couldn't I eat something from Day 1 on Day 1 and on Day 3 or is that completely forbidden?
My main problem is that I can't get all the foods listed, and so on some days I see my family go hungry  ;). Well, maybe not quite as bad, but for example I can only get butter, ghee (which we make) and olive oil here, (besides Canola), so as far as I saw it I can't use any oil on 2 days :-[.
So, I would be thankful if one of you ladies with more insight could help me out.
I'm soooo thankful that I found WTM.

I don't know a whole lot about the allergy rotation diet, but a lady once shared the concept with me, and I think it explains whether you should stick to doing those foods only on those days.

As I understand it, part of the theory behind it is that our bodies get too much of the same things at times--and don't get a break from them. Due to how food is available nowadays, you can eat practically any particular food any time of year. Peaches, blueberries, corn, beans, etc. You can eat it every day, every week, or every month. Your body doesn't necessarily get a break from things.

Back 200 years ago, foods were eaten more when they were in season, and thus were not available for the whole year. With choosing to eat certain foods on certain days (and not repeating them for 3 days), you're giving your body a break from that particular type of food.

Now as I've said, I'm not terribly familiar with the diet, but the science of it does make some sense. You can eat certain foods (and food groups) on a particular day, then you have to avoid it for a few. This gives your body a break from that food group.

For what it's worth, the lady who shared this with me also told me that her family was struggling with allergies, perhaps just her daughter. (I can't recall) After following the rotation diet for a while her daughter is free of those allergies. I don't know how long they followed it, or if the listing of foods above is exactly what they did.

Anyway, in answer to your question I'd say, yes you do have to keep the days apart for it to "work." (And you'd be without oil/butter then for 2 days, I guess.)  Assuming of course that the diet is actually effective for helping you with your issues.
