Have you read the study out of Scripps at UC San Diego? Researchers tested the Autoimmune Paleo diet on IBD patients (UC and Crohn’s). Could a diet really help? Patients achieved over a 70% remission rate in just six weeks. That is pretty amazing. Further studies are now being conducted on Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis patients.
It certainly could be worth trying!
P.S. I have celiac disease, Hashimoto’s and Autoimmune (AI) Gastritis. While my celiac disease is in remission (confirmed by repeat biopsies), I have found that if my Celiac Disease is triggered by a gluten exposure, it activates all my antibodies. I am not just gluten free but do follow a comparable AIP diet as well. My GERD is in remission, but like most AI issues, it can flare at any time. I wish the triggers were known for all AI disorders and not just for celiac disease.
