I am really surprised with what seems to be an overwhelming support of vaccination in the paleo community. Why is this? Anyone who has researched the issue cannot deny there is a very deep debate about vaccines and the health conditions they can... (more)
Hey so I was about to take some Emergen-C cause I feel like poop. Lucky me, the first ingredient is 'cane sugar' should I just go buy some plain vitamin c or can I take this for a fast fix..I feel like death.
Freeform L-Lysine is pretty much going to be be 100% the same from every vendor. I've always liked Solgar when I can't decide between brands for various supplements. Also: don't just dose with Lysine -- make sure to keep Arginine low.
I went to the doctor today for what I thought were hypothyroid symptoms...All I got was an allergy prescription and advice to drink water, eat vegetables, and walk 30 minutes a day. I pretty much do crossfit & this MFker is telling me to walk... (more)
We have seen a person question if the paleo diet "has to be heathy". What I question is your determination of health itself. Let me define health is homeostasis. Nothing more or less. A balance of systems that lead to optimal function. That... (more)

I'm thinking of starting to use pseudoephedrine to give me more energy throughout the day, although I am aware the a paleolithic man never used any sort of medication, it's not food. What do you guys think? Thanks :)
How should we answer questions that may be beyond the level we should be dealing with? How do we know what that level is? (brought on by a particular question, but really applies to a lot of questions I've read here)
Just throw out the first thing that comes to mind, it's pretty silly to look for answers to serious medical questions at "Paleo Hacks," what's next "Hack My Brain Tumor"? People link to photos of their poop for God's sake.
What are your views on function medicine and naturopathy? If someone were sick would you send them to a functional doctor? What type of doctor might cause more harm for a diabetic?
I've been strict Paleo for over a year now and I haven't been able to get off my anti-depressants. Due to stress at work I've actually started taking a low dose of Xanax (anti-anxiety) as well (when needed). I also have a script for Vyvanse (ADD... (more)
