I used to get sick about 2-3 times a year. I haven't been sick in about a year. When I did get sick, it would take about 5-7 days to run it's course. I just got sick for the first time this week. It just so happened to be directly after Thanksgiving, where my diet fell off a bit, and I drank too much whiskey with my brother who was in town. The only difference this time was, I kicked it in 2 days (albeit, harsh ones) by cutting out all carbs, and making bone broth soup and grass-fed liver for dinner both nights. Felt like new this morning.
I heart Paleo.
