I've been eating paleo for about 1 year, and have tried whole 30, autoimmune protocols (to see if I could improve psoriasis - I didnt over a 4 week period, sun exposure seems to be the only cure I have found...), perfect health diet and a more 80/20 and 90/10 kind of approach.
During my most strict phases, I noticed increased gluten and milk sensitivity. After a few weeks of frequent exposure to ales and the odd sweet/bread, including increased cheese and milk consumption, I have noticed a huge reduction in any gut irritation symptoms that I usually associate with these so called NADs.
Question: Has tolerance improved or is there something more metabolically or 'immunologically' nuanced in my body's response?
Thanks for any contributions in advance! Long live paleo hacks.

Personally enzyme down-regulation is quite convincing for me. My concern is that people, myself included, have confused lowered digestion with food intolerance...

What i have noticed is you have to make a concerted effort to buld yourself up. Avoiding things is just avoiding things. It can stop making things worse, but there is more to do ifyou want to bestronger and more resillient.
Aim to get a wide range f fermented foods. Decent brands of anything picled, preserved, or enen better make your own. There are simple relishes and salsas that are easy to make.yoghurt is good, cultured butter, anyhing that relies on a relationship with bacteria.
You also need to be mindful of all the chemicals around you. Detergents, plastics, exhausts, food additives. Who can imagine the things we will learn about what we use everyday that may be doing us harm.
Make sure you have some relatonship with nature. Get in your garden, pull weeds, plant some herbs, Get a potplant. Scratch around in some soil and help something grow.
Paleo is more than diet. You are an animal.
