My ND said that a lot of patients he treats become more sensitive to foods after doing the diet for a period of time and he stated this is because you have become too “clean”. You wouldn’t notice the allergies/reactions before but now you do because your system is more pure. So don’t think its because you are getting worse.
I’d examine inflammation and stomach acid further and talk about acupuncture.
That makes so much sense, and yet I would not have thought of it. In fact, I was getting uber frustrated because I was thinking “how can I be eating so clean and still swelling? It’s getting worse, not better.” I said that exact thing about two days ago. And then I remembered this forum and the knowledgeable people who had healed leaky gut etc. I am so glad I came on to ask these questions.
