Step 3 – Weeks 6 to 8:

Reintroduce each of the eliminated foods one at a time.  It is helpful to journal throughout the cleanse, however, it is particularly important during the reintroduction of foods to note how they affect you.  Your journal entries can include:  a detailed list of all foods consumed, all symptoms or reactions, sleep patterns and bowel movements.

 

  • Be sure to introduce each food only once over a 48 hour period
  • Be aware of any reactions, ie: bloating, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pains or discomfort, head aches, sleeplessness, joint pains, stiffness, runny nose or congestion, itchy/watery eyes etc. (basically, any symptom that wasn’t present during the cleanse)
  • If no symptoms are noticed, the food may remain in the diet, however, if symptoms are present, this food should be avoided
  • Continue this process until all foods have been reintroduced

Note:  if an illness is present, you may have to maintain the cleansing period for several months before attempting the reintroduction of foods to allow your body to fully restore bacterial balance in your gut.
