Thank you so much. Yes, I am focusing on healing the gut because of my scleroderma so I will continue with the AIP protocol.

The autoimmune protocol is really about avoiding foods likely to cause an immune response via leaky gut. The immune system reacts to the proteins in the food. Phytic acid is unlikely to cause an autoimmune response as it is not a protein.

In general, some foods (meaning some proteins) are more likely to cause an auto immune response these are: Soy, grains, eggs, nightshades, nuts, seeds.

So you have to avoid these problematic foods.

An autoimmune protocol is basically: meat, fish, veggies, tubers, fruits. Nothing else.

The information on the 'paleo autoimmune protocol' is very bad.

Extra Tips: Focus on healing the gut.

Rotate your foods, if you eat the same food everyday you are more likely to develop an autoimmune reaction to it.
