A lymphocytic colitis diet can be determined for you by following a step-by-step plan that begins with the elimination of certain foods that all lymphocytic colitis sufferers should avoid. Success is achieved by fine tuning your diet with a food allergy test that identifies specific foods that are important for you to not eat. As part of Dr. Dahlman’s phone consultation treatment plan, he will personally design your diet to maximize your chances of completely eliminating this condition from your life.
A lymphocytic colitis diet can be different for any individual based on their specific circumstances and health history. This condition is a subtype of microscopic colitis, is somewhat rare condition and characterized by chronic diarrhea. The colonoscopy is normal but the mucosal biopsy reveals an accumulation of lymphocytes (white blood cells) in the colonic tissue.
Because of your different genes and biochemical individuality, one diet doesn’t work for everyone. But we can design a diet for you by eliminating some foods similarly to all other lymphocytic colitis patients and also by not eating foods that are specific for you based on food allergy lab testing.
What not to eat is where we start with all patients. No dairy products and no gluten containing foods begin the plan as both are pro-inflammatory foods.
Please eliminate all dairy products with the exception of butter. Please read all ingredient lists on all labels on products in your house looking for the words milk, cheese, lactose, whey and casein. It may surprise you where you will find hidden dairy and being a “dairy detective” can assure you of no mistakes with your diet.
A lymphocytic colitis diet will also include the elimination of gluten containing foods. Remove all wheat, oats, barley and rye from your diet.
A more detailed discussion about how to eliminate both dairy and gluten can be found in Dr. Dahlman’s free Crohn’s/Colitis report available at the bottom of this page.
Food Allergy Testing for Lymphocytic Colitis
Because of your uniqueness and that fact you have had a different life than others, it is important to fine tune your diet and create a specific diet for lymphocytic colitis through a food allergy test that will reveal the foods that are contributing to the inflammation of colitis and causing your symptoms. Learning this information solves why you cannot figure out what to eat or not eat on your own. It is Dr. Dahlman’s belief that no lymphocytic colitis patient can get well without learning their food allergies.
By avoiding dairy, gluten and the foods found positive on your food allergy test, this means all other foods are considered safe to eat…for now.
If you continue to have symptoms even though you follow the above advice and are using the all natural supplements Dr. Dahlman recommends, the elimination of fructose may be necessary.
Not by all, but many doctors are finding increased numbers of patients with lymphocytic colitis who are having trouble with fructose containing foods. Fructose is found in all fruit, peas, tomatoes, onions, eggplant, sweet potatoes, corn, beets, carrots, turnips and winter squash. Additionally, all type of sugar must also be avoided (table sugar, sucrose, honey, maple syrup, molasses, agave, cane sugar).
Once again, more detail can be found in Dr. Dahlman’s free Crohn’s/Colitis report available for download at the bottom of this article.
A planned step-by-step process of elimination of the above foods while using all-natural supplements to re-establish beneficial bacterial balances and restore proper chemistry while also using natural anti-inflammatory herbs make up the main parts of Dr. Dahlman’s diet for lymphocytic colitis treatment. (Please understand not everyone needs to eliminate all of the foods and their elimination may or may not be permanent.)
Dr. Dahlman will personally design the exact diet for you that is necessary to eliminate this condition. Don’t suffer!
