“Delayed-onset food allergies are commonly reversible. If you completely eliminate the allergic foods for 6 to 9 months, you can reintroduce most of them (approx. 86%) back into your diet and remain symptom free.”
Please all comments are welcome. The gist of what the are saying in their published book is that food allergies can fade based on how long you have been without and can even reoccur if you starting eating the offending food too often. I wonder if gluten is relevant here. It is also suggested that you can acquire new allergies if you replace eliminated food with too much or too often of a new type.
PS Working with York on my results has been a real pleasure and I recommend and respect their lab.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Right now, I am not hoping for the adding back in to the diet but do plan to try some of the foods after a full year. I still have occasional problems - all due to cross contamination while out or with other people that come into our house and are not as careful as we are.
Also, my reactions have gotten more severe, not less so that leads me to believe the docs just might be right.
