Robb Wolf: Paleo & Autoimmune Disease

In August of 2011 I attended Robb Wolf’s final day-long Paleo Solution seminar. Even after reading his book, I must say that I was very impressed. Robb did a masterful job of explaining how putting diet into an evolutionary biology framework allows for a deeper understanding how diet impacts chronic diseases. It turns out that Robb has UC, and his whole journey into the Paleo diet was motivated by his desire to find a better way to treat his own autoimmune disease.

I found this video of Robb giving an overview and he covers it all, with a focus on autoimmune disease starting about 22 minutes in. He references Cordain, Fasano, Leaky-gut, and vitamin D. There is even a nice overview on the importance of omega 3:6 balance and its connection to inflammation that is often overlooked.  Watch the video and also check out his blog at www.robbwolf.com

      OUCH! Please hang in there. Take a step back into bone broth or easier, gelatin/collegen hydrolysate. Maybe sneak across the canadian border and score some Mutaflor!

        Yes, I have to make the chicken soup. I’m actually craving some. What’s the gelatin/collegen hydrolysate? A shake or something?

        I wrote that jackie woman from the CCFA….. What the heck is specific treatment/medicine ? I forgot what it was called, but it was one of the reasons they deleted your account. I asked her what that means and told her that everyone discusses treatments and medications… The site is made specifically for sick people for crying out loud. Of course there’s going to be talk about treatments & allllll different kinds of them.

        Gelatin and collegen H. Two forms of the collegen that is the healing stuff in bone broth. Gelatin gels when cooled, collegen H. is even better absorbed…and you can buy it as a powder if you are too lazy to make bone broth.

        And yes, I told suffering people that their doctors gave them bad advice to not change their diets and take toxic, immune suppressing drugs. I told them to change their diets, take targeted supplements and start LDN. I showed them the research that explained why and suggested they take the research to their doctors so they could learn too. Not only did that break their rules, but a bunch of others complained that my advice flew in the face of what their doctors told them.

        Please do check back in there. They get a regular crop of new folks in there who are lost and suffering. There are a few good voices on their….but not enough.

    Please tell me a company that sells collegen H. I can’t seem to find it anywhere and it sounds wonderful. What does the H mean? Thank you very much.
