Most people who get a COVID infection only have mild to moderate symptoms, similar to a flu, and recover fairly quickly. However, there is a significant sector of the population who continue to experience symptoms and don’t return to their baseline level of health. Functional medicine practitioners are uniquely poised to support these patients in recovery because we already have the tools in our toolkit for a personalized, root cause approach.
In Part 1 of my elimination diet series, I covered the basics of what an elimination diet is and how to get started. Be sure to go back and read Part 1 to get caught up. In today’s article we are going to talk about the fun details of what to eat and how to make the elimination diet experience both enjoyable and delicious.
As you are likely aware, symptoms of COVID range from nothing at all (asymptomatic) to severe disease and even death. What determines the severity of COVID symptoms turns out to be age, pre-existing health conditions and possibly other factors such as blood type, inflammation levels, genetics and more. While we’ve learned a lot about who is high risk for COVID, there is still a lot to uncover.
The elimination diet is certainly a popular diet in the functional medicine and natural health space and one that you’ve likely heard about. It is a helpful tool for uncovering specific foods that trigger inflammation and symptoms. But, what is an elimination diet and how do you implement one? That’s exactly what I’m going to cover in this two part series on the elimination diet.
