I see so many people today wearing glasses, it's not even funny. There's no way that our natural state is for a great proportion of people to see fuzzy, it's just not good for hunting and survival to me. I realize that a lot of this is probably... (more)
What is the best way to begin healing your GI tract? Also, what is the best way to get rid of constipation? This is assuming you are on the Paleo diet of course. Thanks for the answers!
The most important thing is to avoid whatever's irritating the GI tract. Presumably already avoid grains, legumes, casein (possibly), lactose (possibly); but you might want to be sure you're avoiding excessive fibre (especially insoluble), tannins... (more)
I've noticed recently that on days after I go for it on carbs that wounds from cuts/grazes that I've had for too long tend to heal noticeably, is there an explanation for this? I also noticed this weekend after eating about 400g carbs, which for... (more)
Excess carbs can interfere with wound healing--ask any one legged diabetic. Consider what you ate WITH those carbs, maybe something lacking in your diet, or just a coincidence of time.

This might be a ridiculous question but im curios, I got tattooed yesterday (a full sleeve) and im wondering if there are any specific foods other than the standard paleo diet that aid in healing the skin? thanks
After awhile tweaking Paleo/PHD, my teeth have begun remineralizing noticeably, and my health is improving. However, my gums have become noticeably more pocketed. I've read some about using CoQ10 (liquid or normal pill form) to heal pocketing... (more)
Hello, I have some questions regarding cod liver oil. In my country, I cannot find any fermented cod liver oil. I only found pure cod liver oil. Will it do to heal my teeth. I take one table spoon of the oil plus one table spoon of butter oil... (more)
Do we know what impact a Paleo lifestyle has on aging? In particular, how will our ability to heal change as we get older? Most Neolithic humans lose the ability to heal by the 50s or 60s almost completely. Bones start decalcifying by 30s and by... (more)
Hey, This has confused me for a while. I look at my skin and it's quite soft and clear. But all over my face I have blemishes from previous spots/acne. I can't figure out why my skin is good but my blemishes won't heal. I get a lot of Omega... (more)
I cut myself with a filet knife whilest peeling a kiwi. It required some stitches and since I work with my hands- time off work, not good. So I was wondering if I should quit working out in order to get this cut to heal faster.
I guess working out is another stressor to recover from, so possibly. Noticeably slower? I don't know... Maybe just scale back the intensity of workouts, do some walking.
I'm 15 and I've been paleo for 3 months now, feeling great! I'm trying to convince my family to turn paleo with me, but they won't give their grains up. My main concern is my mom, because she has hypothyroidism since like 9 years ago, and she... (more)

Does anyone else have a problem with taking magnesium (either orally or transdermally) and becoming itchy all over after it starts working on your body? The itching will last the rest of the night, so probably until its out of my system 12-14... (more)
I had surgery last week. I've been doing pretty much everything from this thread, and healing is surprisingly fast: http://paleohacks.com/questions/169162/help-a-bad-healer-heal-after-major-surgery Lots of colostrum, vitamin C, bone broth,... (more)
I've always been a slow healer, and am prone to hypertrophic scars. Lately though (past year or two, since paleo) my wounds heal absurdly slowly. A pimple may take a month to disappear, ditto with cuts. I'd estimate everything is taking twice as... (more)
I tore my right hamstring muscles two days ago, went to the doc who patted me on the back and said, 'soft tissue damage' and 'just wait for it to heal'. Now I know he was in a hurry and having a 60 year old woman with such damage, I felt... (more)
I've been mostly paleo since August, I've gotten things wrong from time to time but I'm at the point where I'm dead set on a strict Paleo diet. Should I mark a specific day (like today) on the calendar and then make 100% sure I don't ingest any... (more)
More specifically, any peer-reviewed studies showing that bone broth does all the things it is claimed to do? I've seen a lot of anecdotal evidence, people saying they were cured by it, etc, but I've not see anyone point to serious evidence in... (more)
I did a search of this site and didn't find any discussion of Stasha Gominak. She's a neurologist who started studying sleep disorders because of observations with her headache patients. I'm fascinated by her comments about the restorative nature... (more)
I know there are a ton of threads on acne and skin health, but I haven't found one focused on the "journey" of curing skin problems. I ask this because my own skin has been undergoing an interesting and unpredictable series of changes since I... (more)

I have inflammation in my chest (or so it seems). Moving my chest will make it crack. I've had this for about 1 year. I also have pinguecula in my eye (which is a form of inflammation - maybe from liver?) I've been eating paleo for quite... (more)
I'm a nut when it comes to cleaning my teeth. I brush twice everyday, floss, mouthwash, the whole shabang. I've been doing this since I got 5 cavity's over one summer. I vowed no more cavities! Yet here I am again, I see it forming on one of... (more)
About a year ago a relative of mine flew off his bicycle and broke both of his forearms. 6 surgeries later he's going in for another one. They aren't healing right because the bone exited his skin and keeps getting infected internally. Every... (more)
