I am going to make this long story as short as possible. 1. I have struggled with dyspareunia since 18- I am 29. As a child I had excema and dry skin, and currently suffer from very dry skin. I was recently diagnosed with ADD + depression. I also... (more)
Hello WayfinderAli, First off, I want to say from my own personal battles with medication that my heart goes out to you and I hope that you can find some relief and peace in your life soon. Based on your questions, you seem very adamant about your... (more)
I've been asking people this in comments whenever it comes up, particularly in discussions of adrenal issues, but no one seems to want to answer. The only idea I can think of is that there is an assumption that gluconeogenesis is stressful. But... (more)
Ive seen several discussions on Paleohacks in regards to that we may need to supplement even optimal diets as A) our soil is depleted and B) we are under more stress and less ideal environments that we evolved to handle. In regards to B) does... (more)
I have been using Brainboost10x dot com it has Piracetam and several other awesome ingredients. have used for about 7 months and have seen a huge successes with focus, clairty, recall and mental connections...
Personally, this is exactly I feel on Paleo.. My anxiety and irritability worsens by A LOT, my depression disappears so I feel happy (which is a weird mix with anxiety and anger) and I think more clearly. When I'm on Paleo, like I said, my anxiety... (more)

Hi! I have been perusing the forums for a question that poses a similar situation to mine, but was unable to find one. So, I decided to finally post my own question to get some advice. I am curently recovering from anorexia, from which I... (more)
Does stress raise blood sugar? Does high blood sugar raise stress? Is there something that causes stress and high blood sugar? Or Is there no correlation between blood sugar and stress?
I am a 20 year old male. I started experiencing several problems a year ago, including very low HR, body temp, and BP along with constipation/bloating and several other neurological, metabolic and GI symptoms. We found that I had low T3,... (more)
I've got a corporate job and lately I've really been struggling to manage the stress associated with it. Holiday vacation has made me realize all of the effects the stress is having on me, especially in regards to sleep: -waking up at... (more)
Stress sometimes is come from our needs ,we always want to have many things that out of we can get.We struggling on it so it feel really unsettling.Peace with you.
I have a recurring problem with my tongue that comes up every time I start to get a bit run down. The tip and front part feels over- sensitive, and hurts almost like I've burnt it on something hot, which I haven't. I can also get ulcers (canker... (more)
What you described - it happens to my tongue when I have food that contains too much MSG. Glugging water throughout the day usually solves the problem in one to two days.
Oh, Boy. Here we go. Last year was awesome. With a 9-5 M-F job, I was at the gym 3-5x days /week , lost 10lbs, gained more in muscle, changed my habits, and was on a paleo-roll. Then I lost my job and caught pneumonia. When I final got a... (more)
Hi, I am eating Paleo (almost entirely pure, some bad carbs, no gluten) and I have had a tendency lately to wake up feeling really depressed and with anxiety about a lot of things I worry about. This feeling remains until I eat my breakfast... (more)
Hey everyone!! So here's my issue. I'm attempting to build muscle after being sick and losing a great deal of it. So far I've only been able to gain fat, 3lbs in one week. Most of the fat gain is around my mid section. Not attractive. ... (more)
Ok so I've been strictly paleo for a month and a day now, except for last night, when my demons had their way with me. I totally went off the rails, like TOTALLY. I think the end tally was something like: 2 magnum ice creams 2 drumstick ice... (more)
So, I am now experiencing secondary amenorrhea for the 3rd time in my life! 1st time was when I was 17 and went from 110 to 90 pounds in quite a short space of time. Periods returned when I gained back the weight. Amenorrhea for about 5... (more)
So in the past 7 months, I've slowly gained about 10 pounds. Incidentally, I started working at a restaurant 7 months ago, and while it may be easy to dismiss my weight gain as being related to being around awesome food every day, I'm tending... (more)
Hello, I know there are other questions about keeping weight on or gaining weight for skinny paleo folks. Mine is a bit more complex. My husband is 26 and suffering from a movement disorder called dystonia, and the doctors can't figure out... (more)
Hello! First I would like to start with a bit of history to give you all my current situation: I was physically active and seemingly in good shape until I was 13. From 13-15 I started having very small issues with eczema (inside of forearms),... (more)
OK, I know there are dozens of GERD questions on the site, and a few asthma-related ones as well, but nothing else I've tried has worked, so I figured I'd give this a shot. In June, after about 18 months of eating Paleo, I started experiencing... (more)
I've been having constipation issues for about 3 months, and I've been paleo for 8 months now. So for the first 5 months of my paleo lifestyle (I don't consider it just a "diet") I felt great, had more energy, was wide awake during and the day and... (more)
Wow, you've tried everything. Maybe a lazy colon rather than strict constipation? You might want to look into the Squatty Potty.
One would think that an event like that surely wouldn't let anyone off the hook health-wise. IF there is anything to this stress-affecting-the-physical-body thing, then we can assume the Holocaust would have caused ridiculous health problems,... (more)
 this turned out and looks quite the lenghty post, I hope you aren't deterred :) I obtained a meter a couple of months ago and have been testing a lot since. Fasting levels seem to average about 5 (90), randomly throughout the day is often... (more)
I'm a 21 year old male. I've been trying to go from 10% body fat to ~8% lately. I've been following this protocol: -Intermittent fasting -2,000 Calories per day -Low carb: ~60 grams of carbs a day -High protein, moderate fat -Coffee in the... (more)
I don't usually feel hunger, but sometimes after conflict situations I am sort of hungry... My question to you esteemable paleohackers is: is this a manifestation of blood sugar rising during conflict, only to fall too low in the period... (more)
I've struggling a little bit on what I can eat for strict Paleo. I'm on day 3 and getting a little too obsessive about what I can and cannot have. I'm eating just what is allowed, but sometimes I'll go out and get like steak and broccoli and freak... (more)
The clue is in the title. It's day 3, you're supposed to be struggling. It takes (at least) few weeks to get out of the habit of a lifetime of shitty eating. The fact that your hormones are all out of balance is a sign that something is happening,... (more)
I've had idiopathic, isolated systolic hypertension for about 7-8 years now. This basically means it's a high reading of the systolic reading that can't be attributed to any medical cause. I've talked about it more in depth here A short time ago... (more)
Supplements are still focusing on the symptoms. I would focus on meditation, yoga, bodywork (chiropractic and/or massage), exercise, sound sleep in a dark room, siestas, and sex.....not necessarily in that order.
