Hi Everyone, Up until 2 months ago I was mostly primal, 3 eggs each morning, dairy daily, very little grain but I would eat some wheat when travelling without a problem. And had a couple of drinks every weekend. Then I started on Wahls... (more)
Why not try eliminating the dairy? It's one of those insiduous things that may not make you feel bad at the time, but a month off ... when I quit my cystic acne finally stopped (about 2 months later).
I've been pretty strict paleo for 4 months and am dealing with hormonal imbalances and what I'm pretty sure is chronic inflammation. So many websites (including paleo ones) say to limit red meat as it is inflammatory. However, a lot of posts... (more)

Hello All, I am looking for some clarification regarding retaining water/ bloating/ and inflammation. I have been living day to day with very noticeable bloating and inflammation and I am not sure what is causing it. If I go for a run, I look... (more)
So I have read somewhere that inflammation could cause a spike in blood sugar. I suspect I have some yet to be identified food allergies, and it made me wonder if anytime inflammation is triggered in my body, if that wouldn't raise my blood... (more)
Inflammation lowers ketone levels in rats. I don't know of any studies in humans. Low stores of glycogen don't stop the body from raising blood glucose because the liver can produce large amounts of glucose. If necessary the body cannibalizes... (more)

Hi all, I don't post often but I read every day. I have been Paleo/Primal on and off for about a year. For the past month, I've had serious GI issues that ended yesterday in me vomiting blood, being rushed off to the GIs office, and getting a... (more)
Hi there, I've been paleo on/off for 2+ years and lost 40lbs....yay! Last August, I came down with a severe case of mono, was hospitalized, and have never been the same since. I've had severe gastro issues since and bloat from almost... (more)
I have anemic tendencies and digestion issues (mainly bloating, but also incomplete elimination). Part of this is genetic, due to folate and B12 metabolism issues (I'm compound heterozygous for MTHFR, and I have a variant in the TCN2 gene that... (more)
First post, long time avid reader. After a few years on the weights and in really good shape I decided to give crossfit a try and I believe I over did it. I'm 99% sure I've developed costochondritis in the left side of my sternum/chest. After a... (more)
Hi there, I am an active male exercising about five days a week, three of which are heavy weight lifting sessions that include a lot of compound exercises and the other two are my rock climbing (bouldering) days. I was diagnosed with a type of... (more)
Just saw this study on NPR not a PDF I think everyone here gets the inflammation-cancer connection, but why would aspirin work better than ibuprofen? (more)
Evidently salt causes a proliferation of TH17 cells that overproduce interleukin-17, which has been linked to some autoimmune diseases. http://www.nature.com/news/salt-linked-to-autoimmune-diseases-1.12555 I do love salt, but my immune system is... (more)
They're also known as new potatoes in some parts of the country. I've been poking around, but can't find the definitive word on this. Not that there is ever a definitive word anywhere about anything. :)
The problem with toxicity in potatoes is their skin, not the flesh. So just eat whatever potato you like, their differences are small. As long as you always skin them.
I have a client that is having a horrible time with inflammation and I suggested turmeric, for a jump start and then eliminating all grains and dairy. If you have any suggestions of some foods/herbs that have worked better than others, please let... (more)

I have eaten a paleo diet for at least 6 months now. I am pretty sensitive to what causes inflammation in my body. I can tell by getting a stuffy nose. I find that I get stuffy from eating red meat, especially steak. Does anyone know why this may... (more)
Have you considered that you may be lactose intolerant? I would try cutting out the butter and cheeses and see if that helps. Also, are you eating the veggies raw? You may want to try making sure everything is cooked and see if that helps at all. (more)
