A friend asked the other day, “What would you recommend diet-wise for an autoimmune disorder, such as lupus?”
Good question. However, allow me to change the question a little bit, yet not really. Because this blog is about my story. And I don’t have lupus.
“What would you recommend diet-wise for an autoimmune disorder, such as CONSTIPATION or IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME?”
Now we’re talkin’. Could I have an autoimmune disorder?

- Terry Wahls’, MD “You Tube” video regarding her “curing” her multiple sclerosis: This video is A MUST WATCH. Just totally told me what I knew deep inside about food–it’s for the function of my body–not whatever else I or society tries to make it! Terry Wahl’s is a medical doctor who reversed her severe, debilitating MS. Basically, her nutrition was very similar to diets called GAPS/Paleo/SCD/Whole30, with a few tweaks here and there. Amazing story. She now has her own book, website, etc. I have heard the book is a bit outdated and she has made some changes. I am on the list for when the new edition rolls out. Can’t wait to read it and compare it to all I am learning.
- Paleo Mom: She has a PhD in medical biophysics and has deeply explored an autoimmune diet for her health. She tries to base her posts on science as much as possible, yet she does so in a completely understandable manner for lay people. She had to take her diet down to autoimmune paleo to achieve results she needed. Her recipes all look awesome, but be careful signing up for her Facebook page. She rolls out all the sweet dessert recipes there. Kills me. Kills me.
