Organize Gut Health Changes to Heal Your Body

Today’s post is a little bit of a detour from most but it’s a topic that is a pretty important part of my life. I wanted to share it with you today to answer some questions I’ve gotten lately about my health and to share some helpful gut health resources with you should you also be experiencing some health problems that you need help managing. Please keep in mind that I am not a health professional and you should always consult a Dr. prior to making any changes to your diet and exercise regimen.

Organize Gut Health Changes to Heal Your Body For Lasting Results

Many of you by now have read about my experience with Rheumatoid Arthritis and how I’ve successfully been able to manage this autoimmune disease with a certain way of eating rather than medication. I am not cured, but I no longer live with the excruciating joint pain I once use to experience. It’s been two and half years since I was diagnosed and began this new way of life eating a Paleo Diet (no refined sugar, gluten, grains, dairy, beans, peanuts, and very minimal processed foods).

How I manage my autoimmune disease naturally without meds!

Since inflammation is known to be at the root of most diseases, diet can play a crucial role in reducing all this inflammation often running rampant in our guts. To give myself as much chance of healing as I could, I ate an Autoimmune Protocol Diet for the first 5 months, which is a more strict version of the Paleo Diet that does not include any inflammatory foods. Reducing my inflammation and taking care of my gut health was key for me to be able to wean off my medication. After the AIP Diet, I then transitioned to the Paleo Diet which allowed me to add some additional foods back into my diet, like eggs, nuts and tomatoes (as healthy as these foods are, they are also inflammatory foods).
