Growing up non-paleo, it just seems my digestive system could be cleaned out, so I can start fresh with a healthy gut/digestive system. Anyone have any suggestions other than enema?

Cleaning it does on it's own. Healing you can do by eating paleo supplemented with fermented foods or probiotics and bone broths. Paleo is all about re-gaining gut health so just keep with it.

I agree. Just keep pooping and it'll clean itself. If you want to rebuild the mucosal layer and heal your gut a good place to start is daily bone broth and probiotics (pills and fermented foods). The only time I think evasive action might be warranted is for parasites that have grown into great enough numbers to cause anemia. A few little parasites kept in check can actually prevent allergic reactions and autoimmune disorders (it is a bit freaky to think about, so I try not to though).

honestly, the gut is actually a pretty effective self-cleaner. feed it plenty of high-nutrient veggies and fruits, and regular doses of probiotics, keep gluten and excess sugars far away and it should be able to set itself right back up.

I grew up non-paleo, didn't know I was celiac till I went primal, and once I got things dialed in and gave my gut some time to heal, it's been pretty darn happy.
