    Gut issues after 1 year

    Thanks for your reply. I was considering doing another whole30 to see if it helps since it is slightly different than Paleo. What do you mean by a “robust reintroduction?”
  2. Hello, I started the whole30 in March of 2019 and noticed a big improvement in my energy and pain (I have Hashimoto’s). After 30 days I scaled back to the Auto Immune Protocol for a few weeks, but didn’t notice further improvements, so I shifted to a Paleo diet. Since then I’ve tried reintroducing certain foods with no luck, so I’ve pretty much been on a strict Paleo diet for about a year. It has been really helpful and I like being on it. The only issue I can’t seem to figure out is chronic diarrhea, which I had on and off in the beginning, and have had consistently for the last six months or so. I take probiotics, drink Kombucha, and I tried cutting out coffee, which didn’t seem to make a difference. Wondering if there is something I might be missing in my diet, or something I might be sensitive to that I’m overlooking. Thanks for your help.
  3. Hello, I have been following the whole30 for 47 days now and have gradually been working towards the AIP diet. I gave up eggs four weeks ago, nightshades/seeds two weeks ago, nuts two days ago and will now be giving up coffee. I have Hashimoto's and was experiencing extreme fatigue, body pain, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash on my hands an mouth. I noticed an improvement in my energy, pain, and mouth rash after a few weeks on the whole30. Unfortunately my hand rash has gotten worse and my dermatologist said it looks like psoriasis and fungal infection. The lymph nodes in my neck have not gone down, and I am not sure what these are related to. I still experience the fatigue and pain after physical strain, so the underlying problem is still present, but fortunately decreased. I have also been removing household and personal products with possible chemical triggers. I am hoping the AIP diet will help with the rash, exercise intolerance, and maybe even the lymph nodes. I am wondering if anyone here has had skin problems get worse on the Whole30 while other symptoms improved and if there could be a dietary reason for this (Something lacking? Increase of something?) I am also wondering if anyone has any experiences with chronic swollen lymph nodes and the Whole30 that they could share. And if you started the AIP after the Whole30, was it helpful? Thank you!
