There are lots of definitions of "paleo diet" out there, so I'll just tell you how I eat, and how it helped. Basically, I eat vegetables, fruit, and meat, and that's all (with the exception of the occasional rice and sometimes some almonds). I also don't eat nightshade vegetables.
So did it help? YES!!! I have interstitial cystitis, and it has completely relieved the symptoms. The diet has also (unexpectedly) helped tremendously with anxiety (it goes away completely when I'm sticking to the diet), with various bodily aches, swelling in my hands and feet, and arthritis. Is it worth it? TOTALLY!!!
If you're looking for help with an autoimmune disease, don't forget to cut out the nightshade veggies. It makes a big difference for me.
