Autoimmune Paleo Protocol Diet

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I'm new and doing a *very* bad job of navigating my way around.

 

I'm sure sure sure that I saw a very brief mention of the autoimmune version of the paleo diet at the end of one of Steve's articles, but search as I might I can't find it.

 

Am I hallucinating, or does it exist? Please drop in a link if you see it anywhere.

 

Also,  is anyone here following that diet? Where have you found good information about it? What have your experiences been?

 

Thanks in advance. :)

Autoimmune ..... does this have anything to do with a paleo diet for autoimmune illnesses? 

 

I'm asking because I was recently diagnosed with lupus SLE (which is an autoimmune illness) and have switched to a vegan diet to help manage flares and symptoms.

 

Your post appeared in my email and caught my attention due to the topic. 

 

If that's not what you're referring to (paleo diet for autoimmune illnesses), please disregard my question.

Hi innerFire! :)

 

Yes, you are right - it is for an autoimmune illness but ulcerative colitis (UC), not lupus.

 

I've been doing a lot of reading and I have found out about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and autoimmune paleo protocol which are supposed to help with UC. I'm trying to figure out which one would be best for me.

 

I found a link in an article about Stacey.

 

Best of luck with taming your lupus. I know of a few people who have it and it's not a nice illness.

AIP is slightly different depending on who you talk to - and not something we have an article on NF about :)

 

https://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-shopping-list-AIP.pdf is the whole 30 version, 

 

There are lots of sites with information if you google "auto immune paleo" - here's a good one: 

https://www.thepaleomom.com/start-here/the-autoimmune-protocol/

 

But also, this is good: https://chriskresser.com/5-steps-to-personalizing-your-autoimmune-paleo-protocol/ (and I truly believe doing a normal strict paleo 30 days, like whole 30, before you try AIP is smart)

Hi spezzy!

 

Nice to meet you on here! :) Your story is amazing! :applause:

 

Your advice about doing the regular paleo diet for 30 days first sound like a good idea.

 

I think Paleo Mom might be how I came across AIP first. I had previously done a lot of reading up on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet which is different but this could potentially be a reasonable alternative and solve other issues for me in the process.

 

That's a lot of reading to get through...thanks for the links, I'll go investigate. *Dashes off to read*
