I've been on the elimination diet 1 week, but for the past 3 days I've been mildly nauseated and it seems to get worse after I eat. Any ideas why?

I've been on the elimination diet 1 week, but for the past 3 days I've been mildly nauseated and it seems to get worse after I eat.  Any ideas why?

My guess is you are sensitive to a food you're eating more of than you usually eat. ...Read more

Part 2-diagnosed RA patients, with active disease, to try elimination diets of nightshades, gluten, etc before starting medications (dmards)?

No: If that works we would do this. We don't because it doesn't work.
