Should anyone switching to Paleo also consider a healing stage when getting started?

I pose this question simply because I've noticed that even some people who have no digestive issues sometimes suffer when exposed to non-paleo foods.

Is it possible that part of the Paleo way of life should also include a healing stage early on so that when one is exposed to anything 'unclean' or outside the paleo food lists we don't suffer so much?

Ideally one would eat 100% paleo all the time, but we know that's not always possible.

Would any newbie switching to Paleo benefit from a short healing stage so that future slips or exposures would be reduced to minor discomforts rather than a day or two of a variety of symptomatic suffering? What do you think?

I believe every single person living in an industrialized world should do GAPS or some type of gut healing protocol.

Yes, I believe that a healing protocol would be more than appropriate. There are many things that can cause and contribute to intestinal permeability, mainly stress ;) which can be an ongoing exposure in our environment.
