Eczema Diet

The Eczema Life Clinic Program Overview

12-week diet: low/no salicylates, amines, MSG, low sugar and no artificial additives. Swap dairy for a calcium supplement. Swap wheat for spelt, oats, quinoa, buckwheat and low-GI rice (gluten-free only if diagnosed). Gentle foods to improve gut health.

It is modified to suit our patients allergies/sensitivities. Our aim is to strengthen the person's health so they can gradually eat a wider variety of foods. 

What to eat daily (servings):

2 x quality protein/meats/fish (fat cut off)

3 x quality carbohydrates (low GI)

5+ low salicylate vegetables

2 x low salicylate fruits

1 x omega-3 rich flaxseeds and/or chia seeds


How the Eczema Life Clinic program differs:

Our program shuns sugar-rich junk, dairy and wheat. Our program is not 'lifetime avoidance' - it's designed to slowly reverse sensitivities and allergies so patients can eat a wider range of foods. 

Our program uses non-salicylate multi-vitamin/mineral supplements to prevent nutritional deficiencies and reduce inflammation. Each month patients do a food challenge test (ie. amine challenge) to re-introduce new foods. - for more information.
