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.

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.

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