Advice from professional nutritionists

As snacks, it is allowed to use cottage cheese, yogurt, fruits, vegetables, and tea can be drunk with the addition of lemon.

First, thanks to a healthy and balanced diet, the body will be able to cleanse itself of toxins and toxins. Secondly, by eliminating as much as possible the possible allergens from the diet, it will become easier to monitor the dynamics of allergies and draw conclusions on their own.

Adults can follow this diet for no more than three weeks and children for up to 9 days. If at the end of the diet it becomes evident that the state of health has improved, it is necessary to gradually add previously prohibited foods. This should be done at three-day intervals for each new product, because an allergic reaction may not appear immediately. This diet is also called non-specific.

In case there is no improvement, it is necessary to gradually exclude moderately allergenic and therefore low allergenic foods. You can limit the diet only under the supervision of a specialist. For more accurate identification of allergies, doctors are advised to write down their diet in a diary and how the body reacts to each product.

You should eat taking into account all the body's needs for vitamins and minerals. You can not eat too much, because excess food particles will not be digested, but will only poison the body.

Foods rich in protein must be combined with vegetables, in which case the fiber they contain will block the penetration of allergens into the bloodstream.

This type of diet food is suitable for all adults, children and even nursing mothers.
