Welcome to The Big Idea of the Week!
Good doctors know that almost every dysfunction and disease has a root cause. In the world of Functional Medicine, root causes are addressed by either adding things in that are missing to correct deficiencies, or removing obstacles that are getting in the way.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk about how to personalize our diet using an elimination diet. I explain the difference between a food intolerance and food allergy, and why testing doesn’t always give us the whole picture when it comes to foods we should or shouldn’t be eating. I also share how I was able to clear my acne, improve joint pain, brain fog, bloating, and boost my energy and immune system using an elimination diet.
