Does anyone know a good paleo-friendly dietician in the UK, preferably in the South?

Right, ok, first of all relax, the more you stress out about this, the more likely you are to react, stress in my experience is a HUGE contributor to food reactions. I would try a GAPS protocol at first, allow time for your gut to heal, then slowly reintroduce (healthful) types of food back in one by one to see if you still react. I'm sorry to be the bearer, but depending on circumstance, healing the gut can be a LONG and boring process. So worth it in the end though. I really hope you work this out. Also try meditating and adding as many things in your life that give you pleasure....

I'm thinking that I might need to do a serious elimination diet - there's almost too much information out there on what it could be. I'd never even considered mould as a problem until something I read today. I really don't want to have to give up my bacon!

Yeah my mum is the same. She had her gallbladder out and can't do the High Fat/Low Carb paleo as a result of it. Often she needs rice to settle her stomach etc to absorb the acid. But she finds if she eats plenty of fruit and veg and lean meats and such she is quite ok on Paleo. Have you tried taking out night shades and doing the whole elimination and re-introduction detox type stuff to see what you react to?

Slow Loris - went into a bit more detail below, but I'm getting a little freaked out by my increasing inability to handle most foods. I was wondering if a dietician could help me with a good plan to get over this. I have seen a CW dietician who prescribed drugs to help me deal with my post gallbladder removal gastric problems - and suggested a diet high in processed carbs! I had a food intolerance test done which came back with a scarily long list of stuff which I've eliminated, I'm cutting out FODMAPS as they seem to make things worse too.

I've asked my trainer at the box and I think what's going wrong with my digestive system is beyond him! I've been happily paleo for a while, mainly to deal with a long and tedious list of food intolerances/allergies which started up after I had my gallbladder removed. Unfortunately I've now become what I can only describe as ridiculously over-sensitive to food, with the list of things that cause me gastric distress increasing all the time. It's getting physically and mentally painful, to the point where I'm almost scared to eat.

...anywhere in the UK would be good. And any functional medicine practitioners too. I'm in Scotland (Edinburgh to be precise).

I don't, but whereabouts in the South are you? I'm from Kent :) what specifically did you need a dietician for?

If you know any crossfit gyms they generally have a big Paleo following. There are quite a few of them in London and the trainers are generally well-versed in Paleo nutrition, or may be able to point you in the right direction.
