It seems to be well established that degradation of collagen can facilitate disease and I don't think anyone here will dispute that (degradation of the collagen in your gums would result in periodontal disease for example), but could... (more)
Worried about collagen degradation? Bone broth is your panacea.
Ever since I was four I've had chronic sinus and ear infections. So many that now at the age of 30 I have scarring on my eardrums and slight hearing loss. I've been to multiple "specialists" none of which have been able to figure out what's... (more)
I recently had a nasty bloodstream infection with s. aureus (complete with a touch of endocarditis.) Long story short, I saw several doctors for a huge range of symptoms over the past couple years, and had it mis-diagnosed as recurrent HSV-1,... (more)
I could just be crazy, and I'm not really talking about STDs. I'm just talking about body odor, breath, etc. Most people these days just don't smell healthy and it's evident while having sex when they can't cover it up with products. I don't know... (more)
My brother thought he was coming down with a cold and developed swollen glands on the left side of his neck. We are told his means he's fighting off an infection somewhere in his body and there's no specific treatment. Any advice on what he could... (more)
Downside to barefoot walking... you step on stuff. Story goes, I stepped on something, my foot got infected and now I have cellulitis around the wound. The Doctor removed the tiny culprit (a little stone of all things) but he wasn't sure that was... (more)
Hi all, My dog bit through my thumbnail today (she mistook it for a stick...) and it pierced the nail and the nail bed. There was an incredible amount of blood, a charming crunching sound and plenty of tears on my part...! I went to the doctor... (more)

I cheated about a week ago and I think I ate something contaminated. Whatever I ate, I got a horrible bout of diarrhoea from it and was going about 20 times a day, was vomiting, had a fever and a horrible headache. I also found out while seeing... (more)
Just two weeks ago, I posted about potential thrush from breastfeeding here: http://paleohacks.com/questions/145381/breastfeeding-moms-how-did-you-deal-with-thrush#axzz25TD7C3PM So, the good news is that it probably isn't thrush. Bad news is,... (more)
Personally, I would not take the antibiotic. When I was nursing my last baby and had a plugged duct, I used warm compresses often and pumped on that breast every two hours. I couldn't stand nursing on that side (I was also dealing with thrush at... (more)
Many months ago, I was under alot of stress, had alot of family problems. Everyone in my house was sick with a cold( I haven't gotten sick in over 2 years at that point). They were sick for longer than a week and I was around them, in their faces,... (more)

Today i walked like crazy. Bathed myself in the sun for that vit D. Then played soccer a bit. Went window shopping and to my surprise found gluten free treats in several supermarkets close to home. So I cheated with a gluten free chocolate... (more)
So to start I have Lupus and I get infections easier than most people. I have been strict paleo(no yogurt or dairy) two months now and really love it, which is surprising to me. But I have noticed that in those two months I have had 4 UTIs or 2... (more)

So Paul Jaminet keeps stressing that chronic infections play a much larger roll in our health than we realize. I've been "Paleo"(along with no dairy) for 9 months, exercise regularly, get plenty of sun and even meditate a few times a week but I... (more)
I've had persistent fungal infections (athletes foot, jock itch, dry/itchy hand, acne and nail fungus) since pre adolescence...I'm now 45. Eating paleo has improved these conditions as well as many others, but has yet to completely cure them. ... (more)
I saw my Lyme Dr. and he is aware of what I'm about to write. He is the one that recommended the Paleo diet: I've been suffering from Lyme disease x 5 years. Antibiotics and other treatments have not helped and I've only gotten worse. I'm 11... (more)
Sinus infections would include mostly runny nose (lots of blowing nose). Should one keep blowing their nose, or let it run? Also it includes waking up with a clogged/stuffed nose. What would help this or cure this?
Is dietary carbohydrate even necessary at all? In the recent past, this question wouldn't even be asked. Knowing that the body can manufacture its own glucose via gluconeogenesis, dietary carbohydrate has long been considered non-essential. ... (more)
I think a huge issue here is that many of these people who are saying that glucose deficiency contributed to a fungal infection are self-diagnosing their fungal infections. I'm not saying they do not have fungal infections, but I'm concerned that... (more)
I've currently been on a paleo diet for a straight 38 days (all through august), and this month I am following a strict whole30 diet (this is day 7). While on the paleo diet, I was still eating fruit and paleo-fied baked goods, lot's of meat and... (more)

Can I combine the two? I have high levels of it and probably candida and SIBO too. Would it be better for me if I added biofilm enzymes and VSL#3 probiotics? How about coconut oil, garlic, digestive enzymes, cranberry juice, vitamin c? At what... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm a male who has been strict Paleo for the past few months in order to treat my acne. During this time I realized I had digestive issues and also developed a yeast infection. I have been able to really fix up my acne by being Low... (more)
My paleo-ish elderly mom had to go on penicillin to cure a nasty infected foot. What's the best way to recover from it? I recommended kefir (no-go), then Greek yoghurt. Anything else?
