FauxAngel Posted January 25, 2014 Share Posted January 25, 2014 Hi, I guess a mini introduction is the easiest place to start... My name is Sarah, I'm 23, I live in Sydney Australia. I was sick a lot as a child and was tested for food allergies etc with no resolution. As a teenager it got worse, a lot worse. After being in and out of hospital three times in 8 months I was diagnosed as gluten intolerant. This didn't help as even eating gluten free I wasn't any better. Finally January last year at 22 I had a gastroenerologist actually listen to me and run full tests confirming I have IBS. I have worked with a nutritionist on a low fodmap diet which has helped but not solved my problems. I have identified certain foods I am very sensitive to including gluten, dairy, and certain fruits and vegetables, and legumes. But even without eating these things I find I am still not quite right? I believe in being holistic and that my mind cannot be at ease or function properly while my body is not at peace. I would like to try paleo or a variation on it to see if this will help to restore the balance and eventually energy and peace to my life and thought whole30 would be a good way to kick start this. I've just read through the recommended thread and reserved several of the books from my uni library but any and all advice would be most welcome. Kind regards and thank you in advance, Sarah.
