Had to stop by and say thanks again! The conference was so amazing!

Just as a quick over view, I attended the GAPS track Friday with Dr. Campbell-McBride, and that was mind blowing. I'm pretty sure my brain is still processing that lecture. I also checked out two of Chris Masterjohn's talks on fat soluble vitamins - he's a fantastic speaker and such a bright guy. Kresser's talk on the gut-skin axis was pretty neat, and Jeffrey Smith's talk on GMOs was quite passionate. I listened to many other speakers who really inspired me...the entire conference was just incredible. The food was out of this world, the other attendees were so friendly and passionate about nutrition, and I can't tell you how amazing it was to be around 1,500 like-minded people all at once. Wow.

I'm in over my head with school and work right now, but as soon as I get some free time, I'll stop by again and talk more about the conference and share some of my notes.

THANKS AGAIN!!!

I'm pretty confident I had/maybe still have leaky gut. My husband has thyroid disease and what we suspect is gallbladder sludge. He's had unexplainable stomach & back pain for a year now, and no scans, tests, or diets have helped thus far. I'm sure he'd try the WAPF diet but if this gallbladder, a low fat diet is a must. :S

We're too young for this junk! Lol

It's so awesome to have found so many people with stories similar to mine!

In 2010, I weighed about 193 lbs - at the ripe age of 25. I started getting cavities like they were going out of style, I had crazy IBS that I was too embarrassed to talk to a doctor about, I was thoroughly addicted to food, especially gluten and sugar, and I was setting myself up to get Type 2 diabetes, just like my obese mother.

I had developed heart palpitations back in college, and again, was too embarrassed to talk to a doctor about it - I had a pretty severe doctor phobia at the time. I can remember stepping on the scale at the cardiologist's office and tearing up...I couldn't believe I had recklessly eaten my way to such a weight.

After learning that my heart is sound and fine, and after a few health scares with my husband, we radically changed our diet. We latched on to the Paleo diet. Hubby lost 50 lbs - I lost 25. It was so awesome how healthy we got just by getting rid of all the crap proccessed foods in our life.

But I was still having cavity issues. I didn't realize it would take so long to reverse 25 years a bad eating (duh...). Anyways, I found WAPF as I researched ways to heal my teeth, and I've been a die hard fan ever since.

Keep up the awesome work everybody! Woo, healthy eating!

This is a question my husband and I have been asking ourselves recently, and I'd love to hear everyone's input. How long do you stick with a particular change in diet with no improvement before you determine that it's not for you? We've heard that 30 days is a good indicator, but some health issues take months or years eating a particular diet before improvements are obvious.

Thanks!

I don't have a ton of answers to bring to this discussion, but is it possible that he has a nut allergy? Have you tried removing nuts from his diet?

That's a really good question, and I'd like to add to it. A few weeks ago, my raw milk started souring, and I managed to drink a good cup of it, but it absolutely killed my stomach. That kinda surprised me.

Is that normal? I think I drank it on an empty stomach, so is that where I went wrong?

Inflammation is good, right? I mean, without it, we wouldn't heal properly. So how much inflammation control, via omega 3s, via antioxidants, etc. is too much?
