Testimonial written by: Eva
In the summer of 2012 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. My health had been declining for years and I had been trying all sorts of things to get healthier again, but nothing seemed to work.
After my diagnosis I bought a copy of your book The Paleo Solution and started the paleo diet immediately after reading it. A month and a half later I started on the GAPS protocol to help heal my colitis. I guess it helped, but it wasn’t enough to really get the UC in remission. The flares returned very regularly, a few weeks getting better and then getting worse again.
Because I was doing GAPS I was still eating dairy. Almost three months ago I decided to try the Autoimmune Protocol you wrote about, so I cut dairy and eggs from my diet. Those were the last two things because I already didn’t eat seeds/nuts/nightshades/etc.
After two days (TWO DAYS!!) my UC symptoms completely cleared and they haven’t returned in the following three months. I still have a long way to go because I had been ill for years, so it’s going to take me a while to get in shape again, but I’m working on it slowly but steadily 🙂
I wanted to thank you for helping me find my way back to health again. I’m truly optimistic that I now have found a lifestyle that will help me become healthy again. I can’t thank you enough!
