Hi! I have a terrible IBS and I have started eating paleo like 3 weeks ago, but nothing changed. I still have to go to toilet 4, 5, 6 times a day and no food ever stays in my body, so I'm constantly losing weight, freezing and always hungry and tired. What else can i do? I tried every medication and went to every doctor :(

GAPS is a type of diet, so you can't "have a GAPS". Regarding the milk product I suggested, it must be home-made, fermented for 24 hours, and from goat milk (not cow). Start slowly, and see how you do. If the problems don't go away soon, ask your doctor to search for pathogens, like protozoa, H.Pylori and Chlostridium Difficile.

I had IBS for 10 years, which was fixed with this protocol within a few weeks (symptoms were reduced within the first 3 days):

If your diarrhea doesn't reduce within a few days with this protocol, then either you're still allergic to some Paleo food you're eating (which might require a jump to GAPS or the FODMAPs diet), or you might have an evolved super-pathogen that does not go away with diet alone, and may require antibiotics. That's for your doctor to specifically search for.

Try lowering your fat a little and increasing your soluble fibre (starchy veg, bananas, maybe some white rice). Those help bind the stool.

Also, a comprehensive stool test might be a good idea, to screen for parasites etc.

If stress seems to be a trigger, hypnotherapy can be helpful (google Michael Mahoney).

Sounds like you need to do a proper elimination diet. Here's a good reference for that: http://www.precisionnutrition.com/elimination-diet

oh boy. i had (symptom free 2 years now) severe colitis so i feel your pain. while in mid-flare up going paleo may not be the best choice. by that i mean that you may need even more rules to avoid really high fiber and high irritant (fats) food.

First off i highly recommend 2 books for you...Listen to Your Gut by JIni Patel and Breaking the Vicious Cycle.

Second, i recommend the following diet while in flare up mode to help heal your gut. Low fiber foods (yams, zucchini, carrots, mushroom, avocado, cauliflower, squash and COOK them) and leaner low fat meat. Stay away from things like dark leafy greens, and uncooked vegged/salad greens for now. You may also want to stick with lower fat protein sources for now...fish and eggs are your friend! fried foods and fatty meat cuts not so much... right now.

Also, eat lots of fermented foods...kefir, HOMEMADE yoghurt, pickles. Not a ton, but enough to get some good probiotics in your gut.

Make some bone broth! this is gold. Drink liberally. STay away from alcohol and minimize acid fruit like citrus/pineapple. applesauce is great, papaya is also healing. Berries are high fiber so hold off a bit. Canteloupe would be good. Stay hydrated, sip lots of tea like peppermint, ginger, licorice.

ok that should be enough to get you going. once your symptoms alleviate, your gut is healing...you can start re-introducing more fiber and fat SLOWLY. when you are NOT in flare up, go hogs wild on greens and fiber! oddly, fiber and green veg are your friend when in remission. eat as much as you can, often!

good luck! it will get better. :)
