Hey all! My spouse and I have been doing Whole30. This is our second stint, and have been mostly dedicated paleo eaters until this summer (beer, BBQs, birthdays). Hence the feel for a reset. A week in, we went through most of the typical... (more)

I noticed your post went unanswered. Did you find any solutions? I know of some supplements to take that can alleviate that die off effect that can cause bloating or other typical detox symptoms. One really easy, cheap and effective one is... (more)

If you're expecting complete remission of symptoms, you're bound to be disappointed. That could happen but it's usually when you are in the beginning stage or had light symptoms to begin with. If you've had flares and have moderate to serious... (more)

Wouldn't hurt to dial back the workouts a little bit, take vitamins, and make sure you don't have fat malabsorption. It very well could be the medication. make sure you consult your physician about your concern with that.

I am not sure why you got down-voted, it seems like a perfectly relevant question to me. I have been through what you have as well, and transitioning to Paleo was a bit rough. I ended up having to do it in stages and eventually it was great, and... (more)

Yes, this can happen for some folks. Sounds like a Herxheimer reaction--pretty much a detox reaction. If so, it will get better. How is her Vitamin D blood level? Really important that she get tested and aim for the high end of 50-80 ng/ml... (more)
