Continued from The Krisiloff Diet . . .
I stress to my patients that caffeine, alcohol and extremely hot spicy foods cause the symptoms by an “allergic-like” reaction leading to inflammation. For the great majority, avoidance of these irritants leads to complete resolution of their problem. To “cheat” on the diet or not follow it completely 100% of the time might only prolong symptoms or cause the symptoms to flare again.
People often ask if they have to stay on the diet permanently. If they want to never have symptoms again then the answer is yes.
