severe inflammation of spinal bone marrow, bone & tissue - what to eat??

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 06, 2013 at 4:14 PM

I'm new to Paleo, and confused. As stated in title, I'm seeking to heal myself from severe inflammation and auto immune disorder. I also have IBS and I'm unable to digest veggies - cooked/raw/juiced...I've managed with some dehydrated veggies and broth made with cooked veggies, strained off.

I don't know what to eat to heal myself, cut the inflammation and not starve or stress out. I've been eating quite a bit of nuts to satiate hunger and I drink almond milk in lieu of dairy...but now I'm confused:

DO NUTS AND SEEDS INCREASE INFLAMMATION??

I read the Lectin Report. What do you say - based on research/experience?

Thanks in advance.

Flax is high in O3 fatty acids, but not the type that would do you a lot of good (Flax has alpha-linoleic acid, which must be converted by your body into Docosahexaenoic acid and Eicosapentaenoic acid; pastured animals do this for you, so the O3s from them are much more concentrated). Chia seeds I'm less familiar with, but it appears they suffer from the same heavy levels of ALA: thepaleodiet.com/seed-fatty-acid-composition

Yup. Lamb is almost always pastured (I think, right?), so I'd definitely recommend lamb bones as a good source.

Thanks so much for clarifying. So I guess I need to avoid all 'milks' from almond/rice/hemp etc. What about 'milk' from flax seed or eating flax and chia seeds?

Maybe look into the GAPS protocol, which cuts back on fiber. Maybe some L-glutamine supplements and lots of gelatin / bone broth / ghee as well. Here's a rough guide http://realfoodroundup.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/20-something-allergies-GAPS-Intro-Quick-Guide2.png http://www.gutandpsychologysyndrome.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/gaps-introduction-diet.pdf

Yes, for the time being avoid all nuts and seeds. Acceptable nuts are sprouted, de-hydrated pili nuts because theyre low in omega 6 and high in vitamin E which is anti-inflammatory (available on amazon).

Next, get some great lakes gelatin from their argentinian cattle and take a tablespoon twice a day with some grass-fed beef. This will help to heal your gut.

Finally, eat lots of wild fish. Salmon, sardines, tuna. These will help to reduce inflammation. A possible supplemental source of these omegas is fermented cod-liver oil. Seeing as you're new to paleo, it will take some time to get rid of all the omega 6 that has built up in your tissues over time.

Because youre autoimmune (like myself) I would avoid all grains for the time being. Just focus on animal products, fruit, vegetables.

Psilocybe cubensis.

...Seriously. I know several people who have had back problems, some very severe (crippling sciatica) who have found profound, lasting relief with this.
