We have been paleo for awhile now. We have had a few "cheats" and I feel that I have paid for those mistakes more than anyone! The donuts I made with a gf blend of flours had me feeling exhausted and grumpy, we already talked about how I handled the sugar! I think something is still "off" with my family as a whole though. There is still a lot of grassiness and digestive issues. I think we need to look more into leaky gut.
There is so much information out there for the taking...but my head is going to explode!
I found myself on amazon today, after looking at a few blogs that address gut health and healing with food. I ended up ordering The Paleo Approach as well as The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook.

I also called a naturopath doctor and scheduled an apt for Monday! I feel like I have a general idea of what is going on with myself and my kids...I am however, very confused by who and what to trust when it comes to supplementing and probiotics. My goal is to use food, herbs and oils for my medicine. My goal is to prevent illness and heal my body from the inside out. My goal is to eat whole real foods, and not have negative effects! Being allergic to eggs sucks! I have to do something!
The autoimmune protocol has you eating paleo, whole foods, but it cuts out nuts, seeds, and night shades. Foods that are harder to digest such as eggs are also taken out. The goal is to remove food that causes pain/inflammation/ bad reaction, and to heal with probiotics and fermented foods. I know it is time I learned about water keifer and all that other stuff, I'm just not sure how much more my brain scan handle.
