What is the difference between a Food Elimination Diet and Desensitization?

This question comes up often - can anybody explain the difference between a Food Elimination Diet and Desensitization?

Thanks,

An elimination diet is designed to detect and identify sensitivities to certain foods by eliminating suspected allergen (type of food) from the diet for a period of time. Allergy desensitization works by injecting patient with a small amount of allergen to develop reduced response or immunization to the allergens over time.

MedHelp's My Diet Diary (Free Calorie Counter & Weight Loss App) could be used to help track food intake for the elimination diet.
