What to do after you've been diagnosed with food allergies or intolerances
Finding out you have a food allergy or an intolerance is a bit of a double edged sword. It's the first step to healing in that you know what is making you sick or unwell and you can move forward.
Many people feel glad to finally have an answer. But ... then it sinks in and many of my clients REALLY struggle with the feeling or sense of:
"I can't eat anything!"
Getting diagnosed or tested for allergies and intolerances is an important first step, but it is only the first step. You need to make sure you get adequate support post testing to be sure you don't end up frustrated or overwhelmed or deficient or all of the above.
The good news is there is always SOMETHING you can eat and there are thousands of recipes out there with yummy foods so you needn't feel deprived.
If you have any questions about allergy testing or recipes or how to manage your allergies or intolerances without becoming deficient, please post them and I will be happy to try to answer them for you.
Wishing you health worth celebrating!
