I keep reading you should take zinc at the beginning of a cold to shorten the length of it. Well, I feel a cold coming on, starting in my throat as usual, and the only zinc I have is Jarrow's Zinc Balance which has 15mg zinc, 1mg copper. The... (more)
Can hormonal imbalance cause you to be allergic to certain foods that you weren't allergic to before? For example my throat gets sore EVERY time I eat tomatoes. And for anything with wheat in it my tongue gets a little itchy. Can "having an... (more)
I'm actually having the same problem...things that I ate before with no problems now give me what seems like an allergic reaction. I'm far from stressed or hormonal....love to know what's going on as well...
I had been doing VLC paleo (under 30 grams net carbs/day) no nuts, no snacking, IFing, and feeling great. Last night I yielded and had some paleo chocolate mint chip cookies and pineapple and watermelon, (it didn't taste as good as I remembered... (more)
Let me start out by saying that in May I temporarily moved to Australia for 6 months and was feeling fantastic. Plenty of energy and overall healthy! About 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat and then 2 days later had to get on a plane... (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)
I currently have a cold, and I'm wondering...should I make any changes to my dietary fat intake? I've heard elsewhere that when sick (not just for colds, but for most illnesses), it's a good idea to eat foods that are easy to digest. My... (more)
I need to know a brand thats 100% gluten free, dairy free and soy free. Yep I have had the flu for a week now and just cant stop coughing and sometimes my lungs feel heavy! I don't think my doctors ever check what allergens are in my meds so I... (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)
(I think I may have jinxed myself answering a question about how fast recovery is when you're paleo lol) Been getting worse by the day, drinking water and resting, would it be that Im doing something wrong?
Hello Everyone, Earlier this week I felt a bit ill, and ultimately ended up craving foods with high salt content (soups, the dreaded Ramen Noodles, chips, etc.). As far back as I can remember, this seems to be a recurring craving whenever I am... (more)
Many electrolytes have a salty taste. Plus salt has a lot of trace minerals in it. Same thing as craving sugar when low energy -- body want cheap bioavailable resources I can use quickly.
Is it best to eat regularly when sick - fat, meat, etc - or should we be focusing our diets on anything specific?
I don't know what could be causing this ill feeling I get in the afternoon. I'll give info about my life so you can see if anything in particular might be causing this. Or if you have experienced this yourself, what caused it, how did you get rid... (more)
Have you had your eyes tested? I work in an office and the other worker here gets horrible headaches if she stares at a computer screen for too long and also feels sick with flushes
I've come down with a whopper of the summer cold that's been circulating in our area and besides bringing a stuffy head, horrible cough and body aches, this little lover brought along cravings for highly processed/high sugar foods (the first... (more)
sugar cravings are not uncommon when sick. sugar is easy for the body to burn for fuel, and in a depleted state the body like easy. Try eating fruit and lowering protein intake.
Hi all, here comes my second question post since becoming Semi-Paleo (I still make the occasional mistake) inn my former diet of oats chickpeas salad and pasta I used to drink lemon juice in the morning then go for a early morning walk then have a... (more)
It's better to eat less frequently than to nibble and graze. Perhaps after eating a breakfast of fat and protein (I hope it's meat) your body is busy digesting and doesn't want any apples right now.
My doctor recently encouraged me to not consume dairy products for a month and I was mostly successful. 90% of my eczema cleared up so I know at least my skin wasn't liking dairy. But this morning I drank 6-8 ounces of coffee with lots of heavy... (more)
I've tried twice now to slowly switch over to a paleo diet. I usually do this on the weekends and switch half of my 5 or 6 meals to non-cereal meals, but still eat lots of fruits and veggies and plenty of protein. Both times now either the first... (more)
Hello! To begin with I struggle with Acne since I was 17, today I am 23, male. I'm not sick very often, however the four times I've been sick in the last two years I've noticed how my skin change. First time I didn't feel so good in my stomach,... (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)
Hey guys, I switched to paleo 7 days ago, I've been slightly constipated (no discomfort but only going once every two days. Tonight I cheated and had too much dark chocolate and felt sick in the stomach straight away. Around 2 hours latter I had... (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)
I've been doing a 80/20 paleo since half a year now. Since a few weeks I notice some strange things: last week I threw up after I had a party, with a lot of non-paleo products, like beer, wine & camembert (white soft cheese). I thought it was... (more)
I honestly don't remember the last time I visited a family physician or ingested an antibiotic because most of my common colds, stomach bugs, etc I've been able to work through on my own with time, rest, good food, and some holistic medicines. ... (more)
