I recently had a physical and my blood pressure is 90/60, which is the cut-off between low-normal and hypotension. I've fainted four times in my life, but that was before I went paleo. I haven't felt faint since I started eating better. Should I... (more)
I have been dabblin in paleo (80:20) for about 2 years now and finally got strict with it in last 4 months (ie: no gluten, only grass-fed, pasture-raised meat products). Mostly because I've moved to farm land that makes the lifestyle more... (more)
I am looking for a paloeo/primal friendly Dr, in the south bay area (San Jose) So far no luck using the Paleo Physicians Network, primaldocs.com or even Low Carb Doctors. I am looking for an M.D. not a DC or DDS. Appreciate any feedback from... (more)
Hi all, going on week 4 of paleo (haven't been 100% strict as I still cant stop my tsp of sugar in my coffee :( Working on it though! I'm going to see my new primary care doctor in a few weeks and I wanted to know which blood tests I should get to... (more)
I am at a loss in trying to figure out how to identify whether my symptoms are diet related, thyroid or adrenal or potentially something else. I have to say it is almost impossible to figure this out and I have worked with all kinds of dr's of... (more)
So I had a doctor's appointment today; my last appointment was in October, before I went completely Paleo in November. When she asked about my diet and how my weight loss was coming along, I told her I had lost a solid 12 pounds since November,... (more)
Hey all, hopefully not an annoyance with my influx of questions, but I seriously need some help. This is regarding my younger, 14yr old brother. He has been out of school for the past couple years due to some physiological ailments, very rarely... (more)
I went to the doctor today for what I thought were hypothyroid symptoms...All I got was an allergy prescription and advice to drink water, eat vegetables, and walk 30 minutes a day. I pretty much do crossfit & this MFker is telling me to walk... (more)
Can anyone recommend a paleo friendly doctor in Wellington, New Zealand? I have noticed that there are no doctors in Wellington on the Paleo Physicians Network. I don't necessarily need someone who follows/is paleo, but I would like to find a... (more)
I am a bit befuddled as to why this has even happened. My doctor thinks that it is because I do not carry enough fat on my body, but I have to disagree. I may be athletic and lean, but I find myself at a health body weight of 105 and I am 5'2". I... (more)
My LDL cholesterol was 118 (total 236) & my doctor wants to put me on meds if it's not <100 in six months (even though my triglycerides were good - 83). He wouldn't even discuss LDL particle density. He told me to cut back on fast food,... (more)

Does anyone happen to know how I can find a good functional medicine doctor or naturopathic doctor in my area? Are there any good online directories that you know of for this? (Preferably one that will help me avoid quacks!)
There's been a lot of press recently around Dwight Lundell, MD - a retired heart surgeon who is cited in at least one traditional food blog as "an accomplished surgeon". He had a SOTT.net article in which he sounded reasonably in line with paleo... (more)
I think people really need to understand that heart surgeons are not the people best qualified to talk about what causes heart disease. Doctors are not always scientists. Doctors are taught basic principles of human biology, but mainly they are... (more)
Was hoping to find a doc that was liberal with ordering blood tests/panels. Figure I have insurance I should use it (versus ordering tests on my own.)
I realize this question has come up many times, but in most cases it seems to be the wife that is Paleo and doing the cooking and the husband that could care less. In my case, I'm the working husband who has just discovered Paleo and cannot stop... (more)
What about re-framing it to your wife and pediatrician as no processed foods? Few people would argue against that and it would get you at least 80% paleo. Then once everyone is happy doing that you can fine-tune it.
Does anyone know of a primary care doctor in NYC that understands the Paleo lifestyle? I'm just looking for a check-up. Is there a resource/network for finding doctors like this? Thanks!
Hey guys, I need your help. My dad's cancer has reemerged once again, it's been many times now, I've lost count. I've tried in the past to get him to change his diet which is woefully high in carbohydrates from grains and such to a ketogenic... (more)
I wonder if he'd read Perfect Health Diet? It's very well researched with footnotes galore. It's written by scientists, and talks about a ketogenic version for a host of ailments, including cancer. I also think that although it's written to be... (more)
Really would like to find someone who isnt the typical Doctor in my area. They all want to give you medications and run a billion tests! And I'm healthy!
Any Paleo Doctors or Naturopaths in Seattle? Also any paleo cardiologists or electrophysiologists? I am on the Eastside in King County. This was asked over a year ago but wondering if there are any updates. Also adding in Cardiologist as... (more)
