I'm not sure it's such a wise thing to consume high doses of carbs if you're a cancer patient.  Most, but not all, cancers have broken mitochondria that can only burn carbs and cannot do beta-oxidation (burn fat).  Which means that you... (more)

Resin and sap, such as that from pine trees works pretty well as a glue and is easy to procure if you're in the woods. Tar also works quite well for plugging things that need to be water tight, like ships, barrels, etc. You can also make glue... (more)

If she's not hungry then you can't really force food down her throat, so unless she's underweight (BMI < 19) I don't see what the problem is. Just make sure she does eat plenty of nutritious food, like meats, eggs, fats, fruits, veggies,... (more)

You don't need to spend a lot on food when you're paleo. The key is to buy things cheap. Elminating processed food saves a lot of money, which can then go to better quality foods. For meat focus on things like chicken, pork, fish (tilapia,... (more)

Powdered collagen has all the good stuff you mentioned.  All the hydrolyzation does is prevent the gelatin from clumping in water.  The powdered stuff is quite expensive, though, compared to homemade bone broth.
