“what can I eat?”
PROPER NUTRITION IS KEY DURING EVERY PATIENT’S TREATMENT!
Most patients are following a gluten free diet with many also following dairy free and soy free. There are also many patients who have specific allergies or sensitivities to various other foods (i.e. eggs, yeast, xanthan gum, millet, and more). Because of these food sensitivities and allergies, many of our patients are following a diet known as the Paleo Diet. We give all new patient a lot of information, particularly about the Repairvite diet in the early treatment phase. To keep you from getting bored and to further enhance your nutrition and eating, here are some additional resources for you.
