Inflammation hides a multitude of illnesses?

What if the generalized inflammation of SAD hides, or sufficiently masks a series of conditions (some of which could be hereditary, some of which could be shades of the black shakes- i.e. caused by the modern environment) which would only present themselves (and confuse the hell out of our doctors) after paleo/gaps/(insert half-way decent elimination diet here)?

It is a criticism that, in many cases, we should get better- in other words, if you heal your gut, you should be better able to handle a wider variety of foods, and generally be a lot more indestructible- and we may well be, but I suspect there are a lot of illnesses out there, the symptoms of which could be totally obliterated with chronic inflammation, and these may be confounding our expected results.

this is absolutely true. n=1 here on this one. unless you're eating paleo or gaps or primal, I'm not sure your body will be able to heal. without experiments like fasting going ketogenic + VLC and seeing your bodies' response, how will you know if a fungus, bacteria, protozoa or other organism is causing your problem? Like the correlation between rats and people infected with a certain bacteria are more likely to take more risks. the rats are more likely to lose fear of cats, the people more likely to get in traffic accidents.
