I was curious of studies and experiences of people having pets, and if it influences their health or not? Do pets help mood and energy? Any negatives to owning a pet healthwise (other than allergies)?

How does the leaky gut syndrome lead to persistent anxiety? To me, it would not make sense as for gut irritation to cause persistent 24/7 vigilance. Can someone explain this to me better? Specifically, I want to see the science behind it! ... (more)
Occasionally I will have a banana or some gluten free toast for breakfast. A banana is loaded with 12g of sugar per 100g and in comparison GF bread is a lot lower in sugar. I know the banana is nutritionally superior but in my mind sugar is the... (more)
Hi I am pretty new to all this, so not sure if what I say is meaningful or useful! To me, eating paleo (ish) is more about being able to get the maximum amount of nutrients out of the calories I am eating, plus about eating things as close to... (more)
I was diagnosed with Vitiligo about a year and a half ago and the effects of this deficiency at one point has brought my self confidence down big time. Especially because it is primarily on my upper and bottom lips in which I always felt that... (more)
Hello, I started a diet a month ago of fruits, veg, meat, sweet potatoes, healthy oils, organic butter, chicken, fish nuts and seeds plus dark chocolate, red wine and occasional servings of beans, lentils and chickpeas in gram flour/... (more)
Fruits are either acidic (citrus) or sugary (bananas), both of which are cavity promoting. Nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains have phytic acid, a compound that binds to calcium, magnesium, and zinc. What good is the magnesium in almonds if we... (more)
I love meat and I eat quite a lot of it everyday. That said, there is ample evidence that we are omnivores. The mere fact that we can derive a huge portion of calories from plants while being able to live long enough to reproductive age is proof... (more)
I read a lot on this board about low DHEA-S, but not so much about elevated levels in females. I just got back a hormone panel and the only thing that jumps out is: DHEA-S at 402.1 (NR 98.8 - 340.0) My TSH is right on the edge of being... (more)

I care about what I eat and have strong beliefs about the majority of what people eat being crap. It's kind of an extreme opinioin and I mostly keep it to myself in my day to day life. But I want to find someone to date, to be in a relationship... (more)

I find that I identify with the paleo diet so I need to surround myself around others who share this identity for support and to relate with. The paleo diet is a high priority for many and it's more than just a diet, it's a lifestyle. Would... (more)

If I know that I'm gonna have a small cheat (for example a bowl of ice cream) should I make up for it the rest of the day by keeping my calories low and consuming mostly protein because ice cream is high in carbs? Or should I just continue with my... (more)
I've been taking Precipt Assist for about a year and Align (6 months or so) once a day. I'm not totally symptom free and taking the Precipt alone caused some nausia. I read somewhere that some of the probiotics in Precipt Assist can cause or make... (more)
Hi all, my names Josh. I'm a 21 year old living in London. I first got involved in paleo as a cure for intestinal problems that were brought on by an overuse of antibiotics. As a diet, it worked great; bloating lessened and I felt generally... (more)
