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.
In Part 1 of my series on DHEA we discussed the basics of DHEA and DHEA-S and what you might feel like if your DHEA is too low, or too high. In today’s article, we will continue this discussion by looking at DHEA supplementation.
