Hi, I was recommended kefir by an allergist to help my gut recover from a course of acne antibiotics I was on for a long time. I have been taking milk kefir for the last 2 weeks with no problem but yesterday I experienced painful cramps and... (more)
Answered this in the comments, so will re-post here too. Exactly the same thing happened to me, and I've read about myriad others online who've had the same experience. I'm pretty sure I know what causes it, it's an intolerance to the proteins in... (more)

Love Paleo but new to this community. Had just come off Jason Vale's wonderful 7 Pounds in 7 Days Juicing Program which I have successfully done a few times over the years to kick-start my summers. This time however I was a little constipated... (more)
so the saga of the foul-tasting burps continues. In the past i've had these really foul rotting tasting burps. I swear, it tastes like something created by H. P. Lovecraft died in my stomach and is giving off toxic fumes. (I call it the "charnal... (more)
Hi! I'm on all all-meat-diet atm to see if this works better for my IBS. So far, so good. I'm the third day in and had ground beef today - instant diarrhea! This always happens with ground beef, steaks and all other kinds of meat are okay. I... (more)
I know there have been many questions about pimples and probiotics - I've read 100s of paleohacks posts - but I want to know what you would do specifically, with the options I have. Background: vegetarian sugar/wheat addict 10 years, pizza addict... (more)
I have been strict PALEO for 38 days, and I started it after a 15 day master cleanse. The master cleanse was 15 days of only water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and coconut nectar, no food or beverage at all for those 15 days. This was my 3rd... (more)
There is no scientific evidence that the Master Cleanse cleanses anyone of anything. What it does do is hose your gut bacteria, the bad and the good, irritate the lining of your entire digestive system, and deprive you of nutrients. Now it's time... (more)
My husband has a moderate form of Ulcerative colitis which is a inflammatory bowel disease. He was diagnosed about 3 years ago and on his second pretty severe flare up. We have done some research and found that some studies are showing Paleo could... (more)
During the week I train fasted at 5am and have absolutely no problems. However, when I go to the gym on the weekend at around 10am or so, I have bad diarrhea (TMI??) afterwards. It typically lasts for a few hours and...well...it sucks.I don't do... (more)
Did you drink coffee before your workout by any chance?
I started paleo/primal 3 weeks ago. Since 10 days ago I've had really loose stool and cramping that is getting worse. I have cut dairy out and it's made no difference. I have been 100% paleo until last night where I had some chips in an attempt... (more)
Roughly 6-8 weeks ago I ate bbq beef ribs, grilled eggplant, and a mixed green salad. Unfortunately 2 hours after I got intense! Stomach pain and intestinal discomfort which resulted in diarrhea off and on for several hours. The next morning I... (more)
Some websites will say a certain veggie/fruit/nut has soluble fiber, some say it's insoluble fiber. Can you help me find sources of soluble fiber?? I'm trying to slow down digestion and have less soft stools. All I know for sure is sweet... (more)
I had digestive problems my whole life. But after losing 50LBS and eating mostly healthy foods and whole grains I had normal stools. I switched to primal to be more healthy and mostly to fix emotional issues like anxiety... (more)
I recently started having trouble with (what I now know as) fecal incontinence. I would go to the bathroom only to discover that, well, I had already gone. It would be in between diarrhea and bullet. Not solid but not soft. The best part was... (more)
Go see different Doc if you don't like the one you got. You may consider trying some Digestive Enzymes along with Betaine HCL/ Pepsin "they sure help me " and good quality Probiotic .
I've been dealing with a sudden onset diarrhea bout for 5 months after eating at a dirty college burrito joint. Seriously haven't been the same since. Paleo helped me tremendously the first 1.5 weeks but now the diarrhea is back with a... (more)
I must have eaten something that really, really didn't agree with me combined with too many fermented vegetables, but long story short I have been up all evening/night/morning perched in a squat position. I have never experience bowl movements... (more)
I was going strong on Paleo for 3 months and I started having severe stomach aches followed by diarrhea every time I ate. I was eating strict paleo, and this just came out of nowhere. The holidays hit, I took a "break" from Paleo, and like... (more)
Is your version of paleo very low carb? I found I had the same problem but adding back potatoes, white rice and other none gluten carbs pretty much resolved the issue. VLC is not for everyone.
5 days in Mexico and on the last day I was really sick, fever, chills, nausea. I slept most of the day and felt perfect by the end of the day but I've had diarrhea since (3 days now). Even with the issue I've felt fine. Is there something I... (more)
Ok so i am wondering.. i have been Paleo for full 4 weeks now. on Thursday i had about 2 pancakes (tried for first time) made with banana, baking soda etc. I added some Bacon to it as well baked in Ghee butter. As for lunch i finished a left... (more)
Hey everyone, I've been Primal for a month now and recently I started experiencing stomach aches. They were mostly mild (still annoying) but yesterday I had severe cramps with diarrhea and I decided that was a sign to look it up. The... (more)
Hello! I've been on paleo for two months now. The reason why I started paleo is related to my health issues like mild fatigue and problems with digestion and gut. I have had adrenal fatigue and a little history of hypothyroid but about two months... (more)
Fellow cavepeople, I am a 27-year-old, 112-lb, 5'9" tall dude who switched to a paleo diet approximately 4.5 weeks ago to gain weight and balance out my dysbiotic gut (Genova stool tests showed 0's for lactobacillus aciophilus and Bifidus, and... (more)
I'm using Probiotics, but sometimes (due to using a Methylene blue treatment for ailments once in a while) I need something a little more instant for when i'm on the go.
I've been on paleo for nearly three months now, and over the past few weeks I've noticed that around one day a week I feel ghastly - loose stools, fatigue, tummy in knots and just generally yuk. I've just realised that it's tied in to the time we... (more)
I've visited this in the past here. I use Albion Labs chelate. I started taking a lot more calcium recently, ESP before bed to facilitate better REM sleep, and that has worked wonders. I take cal in the morning to speed up fat loss. In the... (more)
