Food Allergy or Intolerance
Meeting nutritional requirements while restricting for allergies
Chemical elimination diets
Food intolerance can be responsible for a large range of symptoms including migraines, hives, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) insomnia, anxiety, bowel problems and bloating. There are various types of food intolerance, chemical (amines, salicylate or glutamate) or short chain carbohydrate (FODMAPS) causing peoples symptoms. The symptoms can be overlapping and hard to recognise without a good understanding of the types of symptoms and the chemicals contained within each food. Jane has learned from the experts RPAH allergy unit in Sydney on how to conduct the Elimination Diet.
Jane is very experienced in educating clients on the FODMAPS diet for management of bloating and other gut symptoms. Like the elimination diet, the FODMAPS diet is designed to be temporary and requires challenging at the end of the trial. The challenge involves trailing each potential FODMAP to ensure you have a better understanding of the effect each has on your body.
