Gut Health Questions
Hi! I am doing a little self diagnosing here and wondering if SIBO could be my problem area. Since nothing has been working for some time. Here are a list of symptoms I have been experiencing: -Bloating almost every day,... (more)
Say to no self-diagnosis. Go to a doctor, get legit medical advise. A proper diet cannot fix everything and that's the only think we can recommend.
Since it seems I'm steadily losing my extra weight on paleo and finding what works in those regards, I've begun to focus my attention on some of my other issues. I've started eating sauerkraut recently, and I've been feeling a bit of brain-fog and... (more)

Symptoms are fatigue, nervosity and loose foul-smelling green stools. I identified mutaflor as the culprit when earlier this year when I found out that the symptoms appeared systematically about 48h after each capsule. The symptoms got... (more)
I swallowed mouth wash this morning in a rush. I felt fine after, it was a cap full. But I've become paranoid about my gut health and wondering if it would harm my gut flora or body? I mean if those get rid of bacteria in mouth wouldn't it harm... (more)

It's funny to say that my gut is probably much more reactive to medium to cheap quality coffee, or possibly coffee in general, than grains and dairy. I've learned about the bulletproof coffee thing, and I'm only interested for the possibility of... (more)

Hello, all! Long time lurker, first time poster. I've been paleo(ish) for almost a year now (80/20 with food, moving more, but not so much lifting of heavy stuff. I use some full fat dairy, but otherwise I cook and eat very clean. Last summer, I... (more)

Hi! With my terrible IBD, i have troubles eating enough Protein because my guts aren't well with meat or eggs. At this time, fish works pretty good for me. So mostly i eat tuna out of the can or smoked fish (I know, not the best options, but... (more)
Greetings, PaleoHackers, I am the mother of a 3 year old daughter with sensory processing disorder (SPD). I have had her on the casein-free version of the GAPS diet for the last 6 months. Since GAPS is not meant to be super low carb long term,... (more)
OK as a low to moderate carber this flies in the face of most of my current beliefs. Can someone explain this to me? is this bad science? Good science? My son doesn't really like candy but he loves greek yogurt sweetened with honey, ice cream,... (more)
Children tend to be supertasters (sorry, no data to back this up--just anecdotal) and probably as a result prefer sweeter foods. I could see the advantage to this being the avoidance of toxic alkaloids more common in bitter tasting plants.
I have been reading for some time and appreciate the time that people take to respond to questions on PaleoHacks so I am hopeful some of you might have a perspective on my unique case. I apologise in advance for the long and complicated history!... (more)
I found this in our archives: The Neuroscience of the Gut: The brain is shaped by bacteria in the digestive tract That question links to a Scientific American article. The article reminds us how intimately the gut and brain are connected. The... (more)
I have a couple of food allergies (tomatoes, kidney beans), several environmental allergies which manifest as rashes (dog allergy, oil paint which sucks cause I'm going to art school next year) and sometimes experience bloating. Also took... (more)

There is a lot of talk about symptoms of an unhealthy gut and the path or paths to take to heal the gut, but I can't find much that describes a healthy gut. I realize it may be different from person to person, but what are some of the general... (more)
regular and normal bowel movements NO: bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, excess gas increased food tolerance I have been following a GAPS diet (dairy-free, nut-free, sugar-free, caffeine-free and low in FODMAP) for over 9 months... (more)
Firstly, I understand you are not doctors. I plan on scheduling an appointment as soon as I can, but I was just wondering if anyone in the Paleo community had any ideas. Any input is much appreciated. I've had several UTIs in the past year and... (more)
Looks like I lost. Trouble swallowing, food coming up, pressure in throat. I tried so hard to cure my GERD with diet, supplements, and herbs...but to no avail it seems (paleo for six months now). Now, I've no clue the damage I've done. I'm happy... (more)
The damage to your gut took longer than 6 months to occur. Healing may take years. Though this isn't a magic cure for all that ails ya, there is probably still quite a bit of damage to your gut, even after 6 months.
Hello, paleohackers. I'm glad to be part in the comunnity, and this is my first question. I began recently digging up some superfood cooking: kefir, fermented vegetables, and now bone broth. My first attempt i used some pastured pork bones, with... (more)
I eat clean Paleo and have been for four months now. I have recently been diagnosed with stress related IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome). It has been going on for months and months now and is getting gradually worse and worse. My blood work has come... (more)
I know. Weird question. I've noticed when I stick to eating healthy, farts rarely come, and when they do, they don't smell bad. On the other hand, when I cheat or eat something with multiple ingredients I normally don't eat, farts come more... (more)
My husband used to have nuclear farts. Cadaver farts. Devil farts. Make-me-furious-in-the-movie- theater farts. Since paleo 2+ years: his farts are mellow, mild, and acceptable. :) Ting!
My mum has been watching me go on my paleo adventure for the last two months. She's said that there's more colour to my face, seen me become happier, more positive, and listened to me rant about my awesome poop, but still believes in 'moderation'... (more)
I've been paleo for just short of a year - 18 Feb is my 1 year anniversary of easing into it, and I probably went completely paleo about 2 weeks after that. I started at 101kg (about 223 lbs), not because of the weight (well, not completely ;) )... (more)
I today just bought soy yoghurt for a try. As alternative to diary yoghurt. its the only soy i eat. and its fermented. Thats the reason i bought it cause of the bacterias for the gut.
