Cancelled: Elimination Diets: How Eliminating Foods Could Save Your Life
Should you ditch gluten? Dairy? Eggs? Vegetables? Should you go keto, vegan, carnivore, or paleo?
Are these fad diets or fabulous solutions to our modern medical problems?
Starting in the mid-1900's, doctors began to experiment more and more aggressively with elimination diets. Doctor Sidney Haas cured Celiac disease by putting his patients on an all-banana diet. Physicians and scientists would go on to discover that the hidden factor in Celiac disease was gluten, and that patients would quickly relapse as soon as they ate gluten again. Decades later, doctors discovered that gluten could not only affect the gut, but the brain and nervous system. Eliminating gluten often resolved intransigent and crippling illnesses in these patients. In the past few decades, going vegan, carnivore, or paleo have become increasingly popular among patients struggling to remain well in our modern world.
Why do elimination diets work such wonders? What should the average person know about them? And why are they increasingly popular?
Join Doctor Leland Stillman for an in-depth look at both the science behind and real life success stories of elimination diets. Doctor Stillman will explain why testing is often pointless when it comes to elimination diets, as well as what foods are most likely to be causing certain symptoms.
