I'm a mom to a 19 mo., breastfeeding and raising him Paleo. I was sick through most of my 20's. Since starting on a Paleo diet in 3.2012 I had my ups and downs. I had trouble gaining weight, but lost even more instead of gaining weight. I was also dealing with a pituitary tumor and raised prolactin levels, Hashimoto's thyroiditis and ore cervical cancer (CIN3) from HPV since '04. My prolactin was the first thing to better and my tumor shrank. My Hashis bettered and was just bordering an underfunction. My HPV and cancerous cells were both gone after 4 mos into my diet (after 8yrs of problems!). Without noticing I was eating vlc-lc (20-59g a day while breastfeeding, so shared carbs). I went into ketosis and my thyroid flared up, I lost my hair, my skin went bad with acne and inflammation, I had PMS, fatigue, I was underweight, had dark circles...I feel horrible. I started a detox and raised my carbs and now I am better than ever. All problems are gone, just my skin is not crystal clear yet (although better). I am planning to regulate my hormones more and detox other parts of my body. It only makes sense that my impaired system was unable to detox with all the toxins of my past lifestyle. Ingained weight and seem to be absorbing nutrients better.
