Hi all, I'm at a bit of a loss here so I thought I'd seek out some advice. For years I thought I was eating "healthy" (no processed or fast foods, but loads and loads of 100% whole grains and more nuts and seeds than was probably normal), but I... (more)

I have been strict PALEO for 38 days, and I started it after a 15 day master cleanse. The master cleanse was 15 days of only water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and coconut nectar, no food or beverage at all for those 15 days. This was my 3rd... (more)
There is no scientific evidence that the Master Cleanse cleanses anyone of anything. What it does do is hose your gut bacteria, the bad and the good, irritate the lining of your entire digestive system, and deprive you of nutrients. Now it's time... (more)

I was going strong on Paleo for 3 months and I started having severe stomach aches followed by diarrhea every time I ate. I was eating strict paleo, and this just came out of nowhere. The holidays hit, I took a "break" from Paleo, and like... (more)
Is your version of paleo very low carb? I found I had the same problem but adding back potatoes, white rice and other none gluten carbs pretty much resolved the issue. VLC is not for everyone.
5 days in Mexico and on the last day I was really sick, fever, chills, nausea. I slept most of the day and felt perfect by the end of the day but I've had diarrhea since (3 days now). Even with the issue I've felt fine. Is there something I... (more)

Hey everyone, I've been Primal for a month now and recently I started experiencing stomach aches. They were mostly mild (still annoying) but yesterday I had severe cramps with diarrhea and I decided that was a sign to look it up. The... (more)
Hello! I've been on paleo for two months now. The reason why I started paleo is related to my health issues like mild fatigue and problems with digestion and gut. I have had adrenal fatigue and a little history of hypothyroid but about two months... (more)
Fellow cavepeople, I am a 27-year-old, 112-lb, 5'9" tall dude who switched to a paleo diet approximately 4.5 weeks ago to gain weight and balance out my dysbiotic gut (Genova stool tests showed 0's for lactobacillus aciophilus and Bifidus, and... (more)
I'm using Probiotics, but sometimes (due to using a Methylene blue treatment for ailments once in a while) I need something a little more instant for when i'm on the go.
I've been on paleo for nearly three months now, and over the past few weeks I've noticed that around one day a week I feel ghastly - loose stools, fatigue, tummy in knots and just generally yuk. I've just realised that it's tied in to the time we... (more)
I've visited this in the past here. I use Albion Labs chelate. I started taking a lot more calcium recently, ESP before bed to facilitate better REM sleep, and that has worked wonders. I take cal in the morning to speed up fat loss. In the... (more)
If im not used to it, a mere tablespoon makes painful cramps and water diarrhea within an hour. I titrated slowly and now safely take 15g with my coffee and 15g with my lunch. Safely....or so I thought. While I am not getting any pain,... (more)

So i decided to make some biscuits this afternoon to go with my paleo shepherds pie. After about 40 minutes..lets just say there was a mad dash to the bathroom! I have cheat meals occasionally and they usually are more on the sweet end of... (more)
maybe is was the combination of everything in the biscuits? i usually don't bake with grains, just nut/coconut flours. have you tried those for biscuits? juli on paleomg.com has a new biscuit recipe that looks so good.
So its my first time making Kefir and after about 23 hours the raw pasture-raised milk from a local farm seems still a bit watery. There's yellow line across the top with white Kefir grains floating. I opened the airtight container and a breeze of... (more)
Mine actually only thickens when I put it in the fridge for another 24 hrs after the initial 24hr culturing. It then takes on a thicker, yoghurt-like drink texture.

Fruit AND dried fruit?! Dried fruit is a major laxative and gas-producer. DEFINITELY ditch that. Also might want to ditch the nuts for a while too, they aren't easy to digest. And increase your meat/fish servings from 1 to ideally 3.
so the saga of the foul-tasting burps continues. In the past i've had these really foul rotting tasting burps. I swear, it tastes like something created by H. P. Lovecraft died in my stomach and is giving off toxic fumes. (I call it the "charnal... (more)
