I've been suffering from Lyme disease x 5 years. Antibiotics and other treatments have not helped and I've only gotten worse. I'm 11 days into the Paleo diet and I'm having what feels like severe die off and flaring of symptoms. Is this to be... (more)
Over the past few months, whenever I have a particularly iron-heavy meal or series of meals (oysters, beef liver, red meat in general), I'll often have a bowel movement or two with some bright red blood in the bowl. I also get beeturia after... (more)
Though I've fully embraced my inner 'doctor google', and although I very much appreciate the collective experience and practical suggestions offered here, I'm ready to see a doctor for the following issues. However, I don't know what type of... (more)
I'm a 15 yr old guy. I've been paleo for about 1 or 2 years. Before that I was on the standard industrial diet, but I wasn't fat. I reckon now I'm pretty healthy, except that I feel tired all the time. I also have this brain fog that I can't get... (more)
Q1: Are you eating enough food? At 15 you're still growing. You need a lot more calories than someone who's 38 and sedentary and trying to lose weight. Paleo food can be very satiating...perhaps too satiating. Try putting everything you eat... (more)
I've been paleo for a couple months. About 30 mins ago I stupidly ate 1/3 of a cake which I baked a few weeks ago then stuck in the freezer. It was one of those Betty Crocker box mix things. Made with lots of vegetable oil and conventional eggs.... (more)
Hey, I am new to paleo, just about a week or so. I have noticed, what may be a disturbing change in my bowel movements. 1. I hardly go anymore, and there isn't much when I do (I have heard this is normal so I am not really concerned). What I am... (more)
Sounds normal to me while your body is adjusting. Add a bit more fat, make sure you are hydrated and take 200-400 mg Magnsium Citrate before bed to help avoid constipation.
I'm starting a new relationship and just found out he has a shellfish allergy! I am a shrimp and crab lover! Can I eat she'll fish at all? Does anyone know how long it could stay in my system? Help!!!!
My mother has been doing the leptin reset faithfully for the last few weeks. Even though she's lost 26 lbs. (she started at over 600 lbs., with a host of chronic issues and a history of yo-yo dieting, which contributed to her getting to be this... (more)
I've read so many posts on here about people overcoming binging after being paleo. I read them with a feverish hope that I too, could overcome this horrible monster. The problem is that many people here who binge say that they craved something,... (more)
Crestor prescription runs out Friday. The earliest I can see my doctor for a refill is Monday. I was going to "get his advice" about going off Crestor for another few days, and then take a blood test (been 99% paleo for 40 days). That would be... (more)
At the beginning of the week I got a killer cold/fever combination- chills, sweating, clogged sinuses, the works. The fever broke after a day or so, and my sinuses are almost cleared up, but I've been left with some unpleasant diarrhea since about... (more)
Okay, this feels like a dumb question, but what do you ask your doctor for when you want your vitamin levels checked out? I went to an Endrocronologist once that said, 'everything's fine,' but he refused to show many documentation. Is this... (more)
Hey, I've been having a lot of blood tests lately because of this problem I have where my face gets ridiculously red on and off all day for no apparent reason. So far everything has been normal/negative except my lymphocyte count is a little... (more)
I expect if you had a blood borne infection, you would be seeing other symptoms. I wouldn't worry too much, and would wait for my discussion with my doctor. Trust me, if your doctor was worried, you'd be there today.
So I've had this one confounding issue alongside this nearly year-long paleo experiement, and it's been the group of symptoms described in a previous post of mine: http://paleohacks.com/questions/74585/looked-better-on-sad#axzz1mgvXziPq. In fact,... (more)
Im having panic attacks like crazy the past 2 weeks. At lease two a day. I use to get them really bad in high school. I havent had bad episodes in a while till now. Supplementing with gaba helps but it takes a while to kick in for accute stress.... (more)
I agree with Melissa, see a doctor, but if you can afford definitely go to a naturopathic doctor, since a MD will most likely want you to take antipsychotics or antidepressants which only make things worse in the long run. In the meantime, try... (more)
I use about a total of 2 oz of grass-fed European (probably organic) butter a day from Kerrygold and Smjor. Either by cooking with, cooking in, or smearing onto sourdough. It's my main source of fat as the rest of the foods I eat is white basmati... (more)
Hello, I've been eating primal/paleo since around Thanksgiving (7 weeks). I tried paleo in March of last year but that didn't last long. I've gone from weighing 225lbs down to 205lbs which I'm pretty pumped about. I seem to have more energy,... (more)
Maybe it would help to eat more live sauerkraut, yogurt and pickles and skip some of the nuts for awhile. Sounds like your intestinal bacteria are confused right now!
hi there i have got my blood results back to see if i have got any eggs in my ovaries and i can't understand what it is saying can some one help me on it please and reply back soon my results for follicular phase is 0.5-5 IU/L fsh/lh--serum... (more)
I'm trying to eat a mostly high fat and high protein diet, but ever since I started it I have no appetite. I'm often nauseous and can only eat once a day. I feel a ton of pressure in my gut, to the point where I have to lay on my stomach to... (more)
It's good you are seeing a doctor. I agree with Nance. Another thing you have to do is STOP being on a restrictive diet. You have to eat and if it's non-paleo food that's better than starving. Ice cream, milk shakes, anything. Have you ever... (more)
Alright, so I will try to be as thorough as possible with this and provide any and all information that I think would be helpful. Sorry to be so long winded in my first post! I have been experiencing some depersonalization symptoms for about 1-2... (more)
Can anyone help out? Several years ago, I chanced to look at my file after surgery and the doc had written that I may have fatty liver. Now, after paleo, I have discomfort in that area. Does anyone have suggestions? I know I can see the doc but... (more)
Please go to the doctor. There's only so much that can be said/"diagnosed" online but without going and getting real tests done by a real doctor you are shortchanging yourself and possibly putting yourself at risk.
SOS! I really need your help with this one. My brother has acute inflammations in his wrists (carpal tunnel at age 24?!), knees and other joints. The doctors say that if this continues, he'll have to get surgery. He suspects the culprit is... (more)
This isn't really paleo but I thought I'd ask anyway. I've had "severe" depression for the past 2 years and didn't even know until a friend mentioned it a couple months ago and I took a bunch of screening tests online. I met a woman giving out... (more)
Hi, i have been researching the internet for months now trying to find a non-surgical solution to my Adolescent Gynecomastia, i have read on several websites, that the main cause of gyno is high estrogen levels in males. I am 18 years old and had... (more)
I remember when I was younger.. and when me and my bro ate the SAD I would always get really bloated and my brother never did.. my stomach got huge and his stayed flat. I just ate some cereal.. (I cheated :() and my stomach got SO BLOATED!! ... (more)
