Minouchka Posted July 5, 2015 Share Posted July 5, 2015 Hi all, I'm really wanting to embark on the Whole30 plan soon, but I am feeling confused and overwhelmed in terms of where to start. I have Hashimoto's, as well as IBS symptoms and a high measured marker for IBD. (I also have joint pain and stiffness, heart palpitations, and an amoeba that is considered non-pathogenic but probably not doing me too many favors!) In reading the section for autoimmune conditions, as well as the one for IBS/IBD, it seems that each of those have more specific recommendations in terms of more foods to avoid. I'm not sure what would be left if I eliminated all eggs, nightshades, beef, lamb, nuts & seeds, FODMAPS, AND coffee!! Maybe I could do them in stages? Like, begin with the IBS/IBD protocol (especially since my GI symptoms are making life really difficult right now, and autoimmune healing needs to begin in the gut anyway), and then move into the more autoimmune-specific protocol after 30 days if I can get my GI symptoms to improve? I don't want to over-complicate this, but I would love some guidance, and would love to not keep eating foods that are irritating to my gut. How do people decide what to prioritize?
