I've got an autoimmune disease and have been very strictly paleo (Whole30) for a month now. I have had absolutely no flair-ups since becoming paleo and have found that no meats trigger the inflammation response in me that causes flair-ups. ... (more)

I have these really bad rashes on my arms, could eggs be a contributor? Would it make sense if eggs were contributing to increased intestinal permeability and resulting in an autoimmune response in my skin?

There is no point in getting these tests run unless you are having symptoms of an autoimmune disease. If you are having symptoms, then they should dictate which specific antibodies are tested for. You should be aware that testing positive for... (more)

Stay gluten-/dairy-/egg-/legume-/nightshade- and nut-free for life. That's pretty restrictive but doing that reduces the severity of symptoms for my connective tissue related autoimmunity. Every time I stray, I pay with my dry eyes and throat,... (more)

I've also had disc issues since my 20s. My Chiro. says that the degeneration of the disc on my 5th vertebrae is on par with a 70-year-old whose spine was a different shape than mine (meaning it did not happen from wear and tear.) I also have many... (more)

It may be worth a try to cut the stevia, fruits and coconut milk for a couple of weeks to see if it helps you. But be patient and just stick with it. Your body has been through a lot and it just needs time. Breakfast suggestions: there are many... (more)
