Stomach issues on 21 DSD and AI proctocol

I recently finished with the 21 Day Sugar Detox and have just started the autoimmune paleo protocol. I've noticed this past month that my stomach is queasy. It's similar to a mild morning sickness (and no, I'm not pregnant) I don't feel like I'm going to throw up, just kind of yucky, and food just don't sound good to me. Even foods that are basic comfort foods for me- liver, chicken soup, and avocado, make me want to gag. I drink bone broth, peppermint tea and ginger tea, and take digestive enzymes/HCL. I also take l-glutamine. I used to take DSL licorice. My stomach problems dissipated somewhat as the 21 DSD went on, but have come back strongly these last few days. I am on the 3rd day of the autoimmune protocol. I'm REALLY hungry and frustrated.

I have two thoughts: 1) This is an adjustment period and will go away. 2) Clean eating is bringing out symptoms of SIBO.

Being an INFP, I'm wavering on what direction to take here. I go back to the doctor in April to see if my CRP and ferritin have decreased (they are both higher than a tourist in Colorado) and I can ask if he'll test me for SIBO, but from what I've read, the breath test is not that accurate. Do I just keep on keeping on, or do I try a SIBO diet/lifestyle?

I'm still having issues, and they have become quite difficult. I started a low FODMAP diet and will be seeing a gastroentrologist soon.

I have similar problems, I still do the plain Paleo + kefir diet. Malabsorption doesn't really go away with a specific diet, it's going to take its time to heal itself (years, I reckon).

Thank you Eugenia. It is not the only AI issue I'm having (fatigue, sore joints and muscles, high inflammation, brain fog, malabsorption), but it's seems to be slowly getting better.

Just eat a normal Paleo diet (with fermented foods) for your SIBO. If that's the only AI issue you're having, then just take it easy and eat real food. Don't over-do it with extreme diets if you don't really need them. I have SIBO as well, and I'm doing fine on plain Paleo + dairy.
