Hi there, I am a 6"1, 180lbs male under 10% body fat and workout with heavy weights 3 days a week. Over a month ago I caught a virus and had swelling/itching in my throat and noticed constant bloating happening even though my diet hadn't... (more)
I am being forced to get the FLU vaccine this FALL or be forced to wear a mask from now until end of FLU season. I do not believe in the effectiveness of vaccines and am leery of the chemicals they are made up of. I am also pregnant and fear... (more)
Does anyone know if it's possible to catch a virus that effects your internal system? I've currently switched to grass fed beef, after I got an ultrasound that showed I might have some type of internal virus. I used to eat a lot of lean turkey... (more)
There is more to my saga. As I described earlier, I fell off the cliff when I went on a celiac diet involving more corn and rice. Every part of my body was impacted. It was extremely painful, I had no energy, couldn't sleep, unbelievable brain... (more)

Has anybody with Facebook who did not previously "like" the paleohacks page suddenly find that they now mysteriously have and that their newsfeed is flooded with Razwell spam nonsense? Put another way... I did not go and deliberately click... (more)
Hi all. I've got a major grappling competition in 2 days and it seems as though I've caught a virus. Not super bad, but i still have to deal with a sore throat, congestion and general fatigue. Thought about going to the doc and maybe getting some... (more)
For years I have had spots on my palms and fingers. There are maybe two dozen per hand with none of them occurring on the back of my hands. They are less pronounced than a braille dot and have no more or less color than the rest of my skin. They... (more)
Yay, fun times, so a throwaway account. I'll be clear here- this is HPV genital warts. I have been pretty paleo for awhile, but when the outbreak occurred recently I hadn't had the best diet. Now I know it's here to stay for awhile, but I'd like... (more)
Pre-paleo, I had a bunch of annoying life-style issues (heartburn, weight gain, etc) which are resolving nicely. However, I almost NEVER got sick (as in virus-type sick). Since I've been paleo, I've caught 3 different head colds. Not anything... (more)
I am a 35-year-old woman, in "quite good" health. The qualifier comes because I have two small children and thus have some stress and disruption of sleep. Otherwise, active, fit, and well-nourished. I have been transitioning to paleo over the past... (more)
I experienced sudden onset joint pain about 6 years ago, while stationed overseas. Since, I've had pretty chronic joint pain (for a 25 year old), including locking joints. I've been tested for everything over the past 5 years, and the first... (more)
I am out of town visiting family. Unbeknown to us until we arrived, half of the family is sick with some kind of stomach bug causing vomiting and diarrhea. For those that have consulted a doctor, the doctors have recommended a diet of items such... (more)
Interesting article: http://www.science20.com/news_articles/obesity_virus_can_ad36_cold_virus_make_kids_fat There is evidence that some viruses might play a strong role in the development of obesity. Thoughts? (more)
I keep getting these recurrent shingles / zoster virus infections, and it's starting to piss me off. I've been doing a Paleo diet for a few months and love it, so that will probably stick with me for a few years to the rest of my life. My weight... (more)
I have a health concern that I am really lost trying to narrow down, hope you can offer suggestions of things to look into. The past couple of years, when I believe I catch a virus, I feel so incredibly, severely run down, fatigued and foggy, yet... (more)
I'm intrigued by viruses. Does a healthy, perhaps paleo, lifestyle improve our chances of beating infection? Recently, clinicians and researchers discovered links between HPV and cervical (and other) cancers: Human papillomavirus is a... (more)
I have stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea, but probably a stomach bug that is spreading like wildfire where I live. Afraid to eat anything but chicken broth and crackers and bananas, which is what I usually do in this situation. No way to bacon,... (more)
I have Hep B and Hep C virus. I have never needed treatment and my labs have always been good. I am about two weeks into this eating style, with no grains, dairy or fruit. I am eating roughly 60:30:10 fat/protein/carbs. The fat is mostly animal... (more)
Paleo isn't inherently high meat/fat and low carb. There is nothing un-paleo about eating more carbs, assuming you eat quality carbs. 10% is pretty low carb, why not have more?
