Side Effects Questions
I've started the Whole30 last week and I haven't drank any milk, yogurt or even butter. But I'm using ghee. In the beggining, I tought it was the eggs that were causing the nauseas, that "vomit feeling' (I'm sorry if you have just pictured it).... (more)
If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.
I've had floating stools ever since I began a high-fat PaNu-style diet - has anyone else? I'll ask my doctor about it next time I go, but I was wondering whether anyone had any insight on the implications of it? Is it something to worry about? ... (more)
I drink. Not often, but when I do, it's always rather heroic. So here's the thing; Since going Paleo - I no longer walk in at 5am craving McDonalds Bacon and Egg McMuffins. I now walk in at 5am craving steak, or Paleo pancakes (nut butter,... (more)
So, I have read a few posts about people experiencing bad breathe and perspiration after they enter ketosis. Has anyone experienced the opposite? I have noticed in the last week or so, since I went back to a keto diet that my BO has gone away. (more)
I've been having bleeding under the skin which I finally realized was a case of "solar purpura" or "actineal purpura". From what I understand, years of sun damage (from my childhood on a tropical island and years of driving with my arm on the car... (more)
I am in Week 2 of a Paleo reset (my first one) and I get EXTREMELY light-headed, with slowed speech and slower thoughts, and incredibly fatigued within minutes of eating certain meals. Yesterday I had a teaspoon of coconut oil when I woke up... (more)
There have been a couple of recent questions on PH about paleo and hair loss and some of the people who answered said it was a common paleo problem. I didn't know this and was curious to whether it is actually true. So I wanted to ask, since... (more)
Hi all, I started the paleo diet about 5 weeks ago. I've maybe had grains a few times - I would say I've eaten paleo for 90% of the time. The first week after an initial detox, I felt great. For the last 3 weeks I've had terrible digestive... (more)
I'm sitting around looking at my bottle of 5-HTP and I notice that it's made from a seed. I do some research trying to understand the nutritional profile of the seed (because doc says I still have too many seed oils in my diet despite being pretty... (more)
I do not seem to be able to tolerate any amount of additional vitamin D anymore. It being October, I could sense that I was losing my verve, and decided to start taking it again -- I had last taken it in March. I have kept a meticulous symptom... (more)
This may be a vitamin D receptor gene issue - yup there are genes for that. Persons with autoimmune problems / chronic inflammation (like sarcoidosis) may have defects at these genes. This makes it harder vitamin D to enter cells and harder for... (more)
I`ve been using a little bit of tea tree oil mixed with jojoba oil on my skin every night for a couple weeks. It has helped a lot on my skin problems! But I recently read this article... (more)
Hey all! So I haven't been tested for gluten intolerance yet, but have rather just avoided it forever because I had a bad experience with it during my childhood. I do know that I am very sensitive to it. Anyway, this morning I accidentally... (more)
I have been taking Natural CALM for a few weeks now and I am experiencing the worst knee/ leg pain ever! I have also had vivd dreams, gas issues and diarea problems. The pain in my legs is really scary. Anyone else ever had this???
I had a friend in college who only smoked cigarettes when at a bar. I had another friend who only smoke pot if a friend gave it to him for free: he would never buy it. If I do paleo at home (80%), but eat whatever when traveling or out with... (more)
According to Kresser and Wolf, not if you're doing gluten. So 80% might be ok, but not when it includes gluten.
Other than perhaps cramping, has anyone experienced any other effects/problems from having potassium and/or sodium out of whack? Just curious, Mike
I work in a restaurant kitchen with no AC. On hot days it can be over 100 and that is without standing in front of the fryer/melter/stove. I then crave weird foods and pour so much salt on my food that you'd think I was insane.
I started to make water kefir for around 3 weeks ago. In the beginning the kefir wasn't so effective, so I drank maybe 2-3 dl per day. But the last week I have got loose stool (sorry abuot the details) and feeling a bit sick. Its no doubt it is a... (more)
Ever since I've been cooking my eggs with the yolks intact I've felt like crap. I let this new routine slide because I couldn't find any negative side effects online (other than salmonella). Should I go back to scrambled and see if it helps? (more)
After doing a great deal of research and reading Sarah Fragoso's book Everyday Paleo I finally started eating Paleo yesterday.... and today I feel awful!! I am totally committed and want to continue but I have zero energy and feel nauseous. Is... (more)
I have been on the Paleo plan for 21 days. To date I do not have more energy but I do have consistent nausea and frequent severe headaches. I am prone to migraines and have had four major migraines in these 21 days combine with a continuous log... (more)
Hi hackers, actually I'm allergic to dairy, but I figured out ghee is fine. I was so happy about it that I virtually drowned my food in it. But now my hands are cold all the time and I feel really lethargic. Suppose it's not the traces of dairy... (more)
If I supplement vitamin D in the morning, that night I will invariably wake multiple times from disturbing dreams, accompanied by foggy head, dry mouth, and general sense of unease. This is from two different Vitamin D supplements I've tried ---... (more)
I've been on the paleo diet for a few months. I used to eat a lot of sugar and have stopped that completely. I've seen good results. I no longer get headaches. I sleep better. I've lost a little weight, but nothing dramatic (I wasn't that fat... (more)
If it is sunken as in hollow looking, I would say that's as a result of fat loss paired with anti-inflammation. If it's a sagging cheek, go to the doctor. Could be Bell's palsy or even a stroke.
It think it says on the jar that I can safely consume 1-4 tablespoons in a day. Can I consume more if wanted? Would there be any side effects of consuming too much?
Well, it's good to start with a small amount and work your way up...coconut oil has strong antibacterial/antifungul properties, and will cause uncomfortable die off reactions if too much is taken too soon. Sally Fallon and Mary Enig recommend... (more)
One new thing that I added to my diet that I had never previously consumed is stevia. Ever since going LC/Paleo, I have used pure stevia powder as my primary sweetener. I have been putting it in coffee, whey protein PWO drinks, recipes, and even... (more)
Typically I've been taking my creatine and magnesium citrate together. But do to digestive issues I decided to separate them to isolate variables. And strangely, the calm that I figured was just the Calm in Natural Calm was really coming from the... (more)
