What little things that are better with Paleo for you?

Everyone who has taken to the Paleo lifestyle knows that the long-term health benefits for them personally can be huge, with things like reduction of systemic inflammation, weight loss, remission of various diseases of the metabolic disorder.

But what about the little things? What little niggly issues did you used to have before starting paleo that have either improved or gone away altogether?

Here is my list:

  • General aches in the joints every morning when I wake up - gone
  • Continuous all day post nasal drip - gone
  • Nasal congestion - gone
  • Tonsil crypts no longer need to be emptied weekly - gone
  • Constant halitosis (see the tonsil crypts above) - gone
  • general plaque build-up on teeth - vastly diminished
  • Constant alternation between diarrhea and constipation
  • Better immune function/reduced susceptibility to have upper respiratory infection move into lower respiratory infections
  • Cuts and bruises heal faster
  • Body odor greatly diminished - that sour sweat smell is all but a thing of the past
  • Unpleasant smell when clearing throat or nose - gone
I'm really interested in hearing about other folks small successes. Please add them.

My body composition; I'm about 10 lbs lighter with much more muscle. Paleo hasn't cured everything for me but this is the one thing I'm sure of.

  • General aches in the joints every morning when I wake up - mostly gone certainly due to weight loss.
  • Continuous all day post nasal drip - gone
  • Nasal congestion - mostly gone
  • general plaque build-up on teeth - vastly diminished
  • Better immune function - an infrequent cold goes in a day as opposed to dragging out for weeks as in the past.
  • Unpleasant smell in nose - I believe it was due to long term Cortisone Nasal Spray, gone. People need to be very careful about those sprays, they are destructive long term.
  • Much less dry eye and goop in the morning.

More energy - no 4pm blues requiring snacks and having to relax. Two meals a day and more than filled by it.
