Elimination Diets

One of the most common causes of inflammation is unknown food sensitivity, or a diet replete with inflammatory foods. Processed foods typically loaded with sugars, bad oils, and chemicals are inflammatory. Some people handle it better than others, but it is a stressor for the body for everyone. Chances are good that you are eating something that is causing at least some of your inflammation.

So What Can You Do?

Exploring your ideal diet is key to reducing inflammation. It took me years to dial in what my optimal diet is. I can help you condense what took me over half a decade to figure out. We are all different and there is no “one size fits all” diet. For example, vegetables are healthy for everyone, but if you are sensitive to certain vegetables, they will cause you inflammation. For someone with significant inflammation, doing a type of elimination diet is imperative to identify culprit foods. It is the best starting point to turning your health around. I use a variety of diet protocols in my practice. I am a certified Whole30® Coach, an AIP® (Autoimmune Protocol) Certified Coach, As well as a Functional Medicine Health Coach, and I use my knowledge and training in all three protocols to co-create the best approach for you according to your symptoms and current lifestyle.

Even if you eat a very healthy, nutrient dense diet; if you haven’t explored possible food sensitivities, you can not know for sure if your diet is helping or hindering. I have never worked with a client that didn’t identify at least one food that was a problem. NOT ONE! Clients have reversed sometimes lifelong issues with diet change. I have witnessed clients improve their sleep, skin issues (even eczema and psoriasis) pain levels, energy, mood, hormone levels, and digestion.

Most of us tell ourselves that as we get older, we are supposed to struggle more with energy and health. This is NOT TRUE! Pain, fatigue, skin issues, and GI upset are all signals that the body is taxed. The simplest way to start investigating is to adjust the diet. Get started by eliminating inflammatory and suspect foods for 30-90 days, and reintroducing them strategically to collect the data on sensitivities.
It’s time to take action to reclaim your health!

“I got to a point in my life where I was sick and tired, literally. I was overweight, out of shape and eating exceptionally poorly. I knew I had to make a change. I tried making those changes on my own but I just couldn’t get healthier. Eventually, I was introduced to Julie Michelson … and my life changed. With Julie’s help I’ve taken back control of my life. She has an incredibly caring and supportive approach that was perfect for me. Her holistic approach helped me physically, mentally and emotionally become a better version of myself. If you are battling weight-loss, depression and generally poor health, I wholeheartedly endorse Julie as the change agent to make you a healthier and happier person.” – Jason K.

“I have enjoyed working with Julie and look forward to what’s in the future. She helped me to prepare for heart surgery – changing my diet and attitude – to get me to a healthier place. I love her gentle spirit and how she balances coaching and compassion. She knows when to push and when to give grace. She’s also fun and can make me laugh even when I don’t want to.” – Stephanie

“I would like to say that my experience with Julie Michelson and The Whole 30 program has been life changing. A year ago I was way overweight with bad eating habits, napping a lot and intestinal issues. Nine months later I’m 50+ pounds down, no more prescription med’s and lots of energy with clear thinking. And maintaining! Julie’s coaching helped me understand my body’s relationship with food … she kept me accountable and encouraged me to my goal. She answered my questions during our meetings with great advice. Thanks Julie!” – Gary

“I completed a round of whole30 with Julie’s guidance earlier this year as a means to rule out any food sensitivities. Not only did I complete this round, but I also came away with a new outlook on food and overall health, much in thanks to Julie! Throughout the journey Julie was right by my side, and always encouraged me to keep going when I was ready to throw in the towel. She continually pushed me to set my own goals, and always asked how she could help me achieve these goals. Julie was (and still is) an excellent resource, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their health!” – Ashley

“I woke up this morning and was getting ready, doing my morning routine and thought, look at this person. How much growth I have seen in a year. This person with all her conscious decisions, putting collagen and turmeric in her coffee, making a healthy breakfast, sporting her natural hair and feeling comfortable in her natural state. Thank you for coming into my life and teaching me so much. xoxo” – Brittany
