Over the last ten years, thousands of people have let go of migraine suffering, arthritis pain, skin problems, and mood issues by following our Elimination Diet. And now this powerful Functional Medicine tool can be found in a comprehensive hardcover book! The Elimination Diet (March 31st, 2015) is up for pre-order and with it comes some fabulous gifts I've been working on…a FREE Elimination Diet Cookbook and Quick Start Guide (see below).

Studies on Elimination Diets have demonstrated:

  • 100% of Gallbladder disease improved
  • 90% of Rheumatoid Arthritis pain lessened
  • 85% of Migraine sufferers found relief
  • 70% of Mood/Behavior symptoms of ADD were lessened
  • 50% of Skin issues like atopic dermatitis got better

The Elimination Diet book clearly explains why so many people are reacting to foods these days and gives you a practical tool as to what you can do about it. Through Tom’s Functional Medicine science and cases studies, and my recipes and cooking tips, you will gain all of the information you need to transform your health and your life.

In other words, you will learn how to get to the root of your symptoms by using the process of the elimination diet. But there's more. This book is not just about the diet. It's a guidebook to elevate your health and your family's health to the next level. Because food has the power to heal and the power to harm. Think about it. What is the one thing that our body comes in contact most with during the day? Food! In fact the average human will consume over 25 tons of food over the course of a lifetime.

Odds are that foods you are eating every day are leaving you sick and tired. How do you find out which ones? The Elimination Diet. This foundational tool of Functional Medicine has been used for centuries to discover which foods are making you ill and which ones make you feel incredible.

I just found out by process of elimination that I have a gluten intolerance. Since then I have been trying all sorts of gluten-free products to regain my sense of "normal". However, Udi's Gluten free bread gave me more issues than regular flour bread ever has! I'm wondering if you think I should try making homemade or just swear off bread in general?

You can try roasted dandelion root tea. It's slightly bitter like coffee, and dark and rich. Here is a link to the one I love: http://amzn.to/1Qijolr

You can check out my Nourishing Meals cookbook where I have the best gluten-free and vegan sandwich bread recipes (made without xanthan gum). :) https://wholelifenutrition.net/store/books/nourishing-meals-cookbook

Hi, I bought the book on Amazon, can I get the freebies?

This site looks truly great. I'll check it out.

I'm looking for your " Best Gluten free vegan sandwich bread" recipe. Is it in one of your books now? Thanks!

Lemon water is a great alternative. It may be the sugar that you are craving in the morning. Before you go to bed, let your water sit in strawberries, blueberries.. any fruit that you love. When you wake up, you'll have an amazing fruit refreshing drink!

What is the best drink I can replace my coffee with. I love my hot coffee and I have sensitivity to tea. Any suggestions?

I know the pre-order time is over, but if I order it now can I still get the recipe book and quick start guide?

I just ordered my book and have both the nourishing meals cookbook and the latest whole life nutrition book. I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile to get a copy of the 2007 version - are there different recipes in that version?

On day 2 and already feel 10 times better physically and mentally. I was amazed that I could actually give up coffee.
Thanks Ali and Tom for your wonderful cookbooks and this book. Truly your work has changed my relationship with food. Very grateful! SG

Just bought pre-ordered The Elimination Diet and received the gifts. Really beautiful photography! Loved looking at the recipes and am looking forward to cooking! Your cookbooks are a permanent fixture on my kitchen counter. Thank you!

I understand that the E Diet can help with asthma, allergies, etc. Can it also help with COPD, bronchiectasis, chronic bronchitis? Thank you.
