It’s Food Allergy Awareness Week this week. In the early years of this work, when we first began speaking about food allergies, people used to look at you like you were making it up. How could a child be allergic to food? And since when? As kids, we ate PB&Js and had cartons of milk for lunch at school. They weren’t loaded weapons on a lunchroom table. What’s changed? And why has it changed so fast?
As my teacher Joshua Rosenthal at Integrative Nutrition always said, “given half a chance, the body will heal itself.” In the past three years of supporting patients and customers on the Be Well Cleanse, I’ve heard lots of common responses: more energy, weight loss, better digestion. There have also been some more quirky or uncommon results that are pretty wonderful. These certainly won’t happen to everyone. It’s hard to say if they are the result of cleaning up your diet, taking the digestive supplements or the protein shakes -- or maybe a combination of all three. Either way, these surprising results are worth celebrating!

Instead of learning to live with the discomfort, do something about it today! Here are 6 ways to deal with the causes and help relieve the symptoms.
