Hey everyone! So just over a month and a half ago my hubby and I ended up staying in a really damp hotel room and for some reason we never thought to ask for another hotel room. Needless to say I got a full on flu, first one in over a year, with... (more)
Was feeling flu type symptoms, went to see my doctor and turns out I contracted to H1N1 flu virus. I hear all these stories about people having life threatening issues from this strain. I'm a 28 yr old male who eats strict paleo, regular... (more)
I was feeling really tired yesterday afternoon, my throat is not necesseraly sore, but feels like it's about to get that way, and my muscles are sore even though I haven't been exercising. Could it be the flu?
I've constantly been having flu-like symptoms, like fatigue and headaches for about a year now. I cut out gluten from my diet 2 years ago, but I still eat glutenfree grains. Can those also cause those kinds of symptoms? If someone has a problem... (more)
Came across this website last week, bought the ingredients and put it together. VERY strong stuff to take on a shot, but it works. I have heard people call this "fire tonic" or something along those lines. Apparently you are supposed to let it... (more)
So, I got sick, it happened. What is the best way eating Paleo when you're sick with the cold or flu? Should you limit carbs, go high protein/high fat/no carbs... What is best if you're going to be inactive? I regularly CrossFit 5-6 times/week,... (more)
It is day four into this flu from hell. Without thinking I drank some kefir this morning. Not really sure how my body will react if at all. Any thoughts?

I've been completely primal for about a month now. Over the weekend I went out on a road trip with some friends and that evening I had a huge meal of bread. The next day I woke up an extremely sore throat, stuffy nose, messed up sinus and extreme... (more)

Two 24 hour fasts a week are very stressful on the body. There is also a lot more research coming out about women and intermittant fasting, here's something to get you started. I would look into possibly something along the lines of a lean gains... (more)
I have heard of and experienced carb flu when making the switch to a fat-burning engine, but what is confusing me is this: I stay in keto pretty much all the time, but when I slip out of it, I seem to get a low mood and enervation lasting a few... (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)
I believe I have a sinus infection. I get these every so often and normally I would just go into the doctors and get an antibiotic and clear it up in a few days or so. Now being Paleo I understand that is discouraged. The problem is, now it's... (more)

If you get the stomach flu, what remedies do you use? Vitamin C? Apple Cider Vineger? Water? Rest? What works the best? Are there any quick reliefs you can get from any foods or supplements?
Would increasing calories (slightly) during a cold/flu/sinus scenario help with recovory. I think this would be along the lines of recovoring from a work out. I feel that most peaple seem to want to eat more when run down whether that be from... (more)
Ideas? I do not get it really and I want to understand this phenomena better.
So it looks like I'm getting the second cold/flu/whatever since I started paleo in Jan 2010. Last summer's bout knocked me on my ass. What's weird is that even though I'm in the best health of most of my adult life now, I hardly ever got sick.... (more)
