I can understand such peoples' lipids going back up to normal levels gradually as their villus atrophy heals and you get your villi back but why would they skyrocket to FH levels? The reason for that usually has to do with FT3 getting low or... (more)

I'm 27 years old and found out I had celiac disease about a month ago. I think I am having a problem digesting fat. It seems like if I eat much more than tablespoon of fat in a meal I get very nauseous for hours after. I'm not sure if this is... (more)

If you are having problems digesting your fat, there are a couple of things that come to mind. (1) You possibly lack enough stomach acid. You can take a Betaine HCl supplement to see if it helps. Please read up on it if you choose this, as it... (more)

I started Paleo a year ago. It fixed a gazillion of health problems for me. But the few remaining problems, while I know how to fix them, they contradict one another. I'm at a loss. Here are the facts: IBS for 10 years, high inflammation all... (more)

I come from IBS-D, SIBO, and anti-biotics, so my gut flora is as bad. I felt better within a few days after going Paleo, but I've heard cases from Cronh's patients who needed 3-6 months before they saw a better day on such a diet. One thing I do... (more)
