Autoimmune Diet

Autoimmune Diet

Has anyone tried a autoimmune diet, no gluten, no nuts, no grains, no diary, no eggs, no lentils and no night shade vegetables?

Yeppers and I am 80% better than I was. I eat mostly raw foods (vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds). My body doesn't digest meat very well so I gave that up. The AIP diet helped me identify what I was allergic to like processed sugars, vegetable oils, etc... I also did the ALCAT food allergy test which helped me find allergies that are slow delayed like garlic, beef, potatoes.
Some people reverse their diseases 100% with this diet! I believe it all stems in the gut! I do intermittent fasting at times and feel disease free when I am not eating. Unfortunately, I need to eat to live so I switch things up and try to eat lightly on some days. I am still perfecting my diet as I think I am allergic to lectins too. Anyways, i hope you try it!

I did an elimination diet. I have cut out dairy and gluten. Had a legume allergy my whole life so that is out. Use very little processed foods. Try to make stuff myself from scratch. Makes a difference.
