Over 4% of Americans have a food allergy and 15-20% have a food intolerance or sensitivity. These food reactions can be related to a myriad of symptoms that ultimately can lead to chronic disease states and gut inflammation. Common symptoms include headaches, IBS, Brain fog, Joint Pain, Inflammation, and weight gain. The Elimination diet is a 4-week program that not only helps patients identify food triggers but also helps to reduce inflammation and restore gut health. Almost every patient who completes the diet has improvements in some aspect of their health.
The Thrive program includes education on the details of the diet as well as handouts with recipes and planners and helpful hints.
