I'm a clean-slate kind of guy. So I would go with #2. Start fresh and rebuild. In my experience, 3 Doesn't really work 1 could work, but your are ice-skating up hill.

What's a paleo way to get rid of pinworms? I've heard of in-shell pumpkin seeds, carrots, apple cider vinegar, and pineapple (though it seems too carby to work effectively - the worms would feast instead of die). Is there any other food that... (more)
Sunflower seeds and vinegar? Pinworms are easily and safely treated with medication, why don't you go to your doctor? To be honest I don't really understand the paleo obsession with avoiding medications at all cost.
The kind you can buy in the supermarkets? Fresh fish is super expensive here but good quality frozen fish like MSC wild caught salmon is pretty affordable. Can I just defrost it for a couple of hours and eat it or are there any dangers to... (more)
