17 Feb General Food Avoidance List When Cleansing
For cleansing/detoxification success, it’s best to avoid processed and refined foods and avoid the foods listed below (as well as any food sensitivities/allergies you may have). This avoidance list couples well with the Digestive Restoration Program and its 4Rs (rest, repair, restore, reintroduction). If you are unsure about any potential food sensitivities, feel free to contact me to set an appointment for IgG Food Allergy Testing (blood spot test). I’m here to help if you have any questions or concerns. To your good health!
