The Paleo Diet bag


by Claire Chabrieres January 23, 2019

Following the request of some of our members, we have put together a new bag (drum roll): the Paleo Diet bag. We have put it together with the support of Doctor Kamat, a well known naturopath in Singapore.

Doctor ​K​amat gives us a quick introduction to the Paleo diet: "The Paleo diet is basically a diet of our ancestors and what they ate typically- meat, fish, poultry vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. A paleo diet eliminates refined and processed foods, as well as sugar, legumes and all grains (including gluten-free grains). It is automatically a rather low carbohydrate diet and organic options are preferred.

With the Autoimmune Paleo, the intention is to take the paleo diet and make it even better at healing Leaky Gut and decreasing inflammation in the body by eliminating eggs, nightshade vegetables, as well as nuts and seeds (because many people react to them). Nightshade vegetables, such as tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, and peppers although are considered safe for most people, can worsen Leaky Gut and increase inflammation in some promoting further immune imbalances and other symptoms.

From my perspective as a Naturopathic physician, the Autoimmune paleo diet will help heal inflammation to a great extent if done properly. As each individual is different and unique, I believe in customizing your own diet and foods based on what your body can digest efficiently.

This is an important step if one needs to heal and recover completely.  Stress, toxicity and imbalanced gut microbes in the intestines are other major reasons for the autoimmune illness. As you start working on these lines along with the paleo diet,  you will notice that you have made big leap of progress in your health journey."
The Paleo Diet is usually used when one has issues with their stomach, intestinal track or digestive track. It does not contain any nightshades vegetables, which can cause additional trouble to people affected with the above or with an autoimmune disease. Note that for the vast majority of people, nightshades should cause no problems.
 
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, or chronic skin rashes, joint pains, type 1 diabetes, vitiligo (skin depigmentation), feel bloated after eating bread or pasta (gluten could be the issue for you), alopecia (hair loss), thyroid imbalances or have been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, visit your doctor and do some reading about the Paleo diet to understand how it could help you get better. 
 
In terms of content, this bag weights 6 kilos and is a mix of our 5kg bag and 3kg Premium bag. We have kept in mind that people with auto immune diseases really need to favour a diverse diet and this bag allows this. Its cost is $388 per month. 

In February 2019, following some of its members' request, ShiokFarm is launching the first Paleo Diet bag in Singapore. Please click here​ ​to subscribe.
