This started about a week and a half ago - I've been having stomach pain almost every day after eating my first meal. I'm never doubled over in pain, but sometimes it's enough that I just want to curl up and close my eyes, and sometimes it's just... (more)
I purchased the Ancient Minerals magnesium oil spray a few days ago and began using it. Today my arm began itching and rashing. I wondered if this means I need to increase my calcium?
Two weeks ago I started breaking out in hives after breakfast and lunch. Never had hives or any allergy before except for a mild cat allergy. I finally figured out this week that it was coffee, so it could just be caffeine in general but I don't... (more)
I have been gluten free for over a year, and Paleo for one month (with the exception of a little bit of cheese throughout each week). Two days ago I made a big batch of chicken soup/broth, using 1 "Natural Chicken" (not organic, but no hormones... (more)
Hi everyone, So, I've got a question about a recent issue I've had. I haven't been eating paleo, but have been generally low carb, rarely eating bread etc. However, recently through a number of reasons I've eaten a lot of white carbs and my... (more)
I started to develop hives about 2 months ago. It seems to have started after a Vietnamese outing (I rarely go out to eat). I ordered rice with grilled shrip & veggies, and the next morning I woke up with a very swollen top lip. After about... (more)
Hi, I've been eating low carb for about two months. Everything about it is great. I have more energy, not hungry all the time, slimmed down (about 10 lbs, but I wasn't overweight b4). Then football season started. I'm quite a "day drinker" at... (more)
We have decided to declutter and get rid of some stuff that's been lying around in our garage/house this weekend. My OH sold his motorbike last year and he still had his leathers, so we put them up on eBay. Anyhoo, I handled them and came out in... (more)
I've got a big problem. I've been taking 5mg of zyrtec (levocetirizine) every evening. Yesterday, I decided to stop completely. There is one issue, however : I get insomnia. Oh, and I also start to get hives for a while too (on my face, and it... (more)
Over the weekend I had cheese, naan bread, rice and cheescake at a friends house for dinner. It was a curry night. It was my first lapse in what seems like a long time (few weeks since starting to eat Paleo). I woke up withe inflamed eczema and... (more)
I know, I know. I sound like a lazy bum. But: I'm allergic to exercise. It has a fancy-pants name, called exercise-induced urticaria [ever-reputable wiki link: link text]. I find that some days, just walking across campus is enough for me to... (more)

4 weeks ago I switched to strictly paleo. I also started drinking dandelion and kombucha teas at the same time for detox. About a week and a half ago I started getting hives for the first time in my life. I'm thinking this might just be a healing... (more)
Has anyone had these? I seem to have all 4 but have found some things that help. It all started when I was under stress for a whole year, then had bilaterial hernia surgery repair then got sick with a upper respiratory infection (took... (more)
Let's face it, we all need a drink or two every once in a while I started out with cholinergic urticaria about a year ago and it got worse to where if I drank beer the next day I would break out in hives, so I went gluten free which is now paleo.... (more)

Hi everyone. Recently I posted about my sudden acne increase, which I now believe is not actually acne. I initially noticed that I was getting red bumps on my forehead, but they never turned to acne. I also have red dots all over my back and... (more)
just sounds like too much for your body at once, sounds like a rash. Try cutting it out for a few days and see if it clears up. I don't like supplementing things for this reason, i react to everything.
