I am thinking about doing the paleo diet, and wanted to know if anyone has ever tried to at least get rid of gluten and dairy from their diets. Did you notice that it helped at all? I've gone gluten free for while and notice a small change, but wasn't sure if this extreme change was worth a shot.
I've been doing the AIP diet for about 6 weeks now and have had amazing results. My fibro pain is almost totally gone, and my chronic fatigue is getting better all the time. I feel so much better than I did 2 months ago! It is really hard to get started... But once you get the hang of it, it is so worth it.
I recently went gluten and dairy free and also do the FODMAP because I have SIBO (sm intestine bacterial overgrowth) which I guess 85% of IBS sufferers test positive for. This has helped my sleep and my energy.
I live gluten free and also eliminated dairy for a while. Neither helped with my fibro though.
Thanks for all the feedback @A MyFibroTeam Member yeah I definitely notice I can't eat gluten now which is odd b/c I've been a BiG gluten person for ever but now it causes IBS symptoms and brain fog when I eat gluten. The next thing I was gonna cut out was sugar to see if it helps my fatigue.
I did paleo which helped my IBS then went on the low FODMAP diet which helped more then found out I was sensitive to peanuts,walnuts, soy, sesame seeds, lemons and onions. I'm also dairy free and don't eat corn. Stop eating sugar! No processed foods. Now I don't have any problem with bowel and I can think clearer. Most autoimmune diseases are caused by eating the wrong foods.
