I'm always itching all day and night, I'll be watching a movie with friends and all I want to do is itch my body. My eyes are itchy also and I have dark circles I assume it's some sort of allergy but it might also be dry skin which I suffer on my... (more)
When going Paleo many years ago, nearly everything got better, except one thing which I have nearly given up on trying to figure out. Post nasal drip is a huge issue for me and happens on a daily basis. It is worst in the morning after waking up... (more)
You almost certainly have chronic rhinosinusitis and IMO at this point it is not likely to respond to diet. The recommendation for fermented foods is worth trying, but if no response to that, then: 1) Get Immunocap quantitative allergen IgE blood... (more)
I know, I know: eliminate everything for 30 days and then introduce one thing at a time, waiting 3 days or so before adding the next item. Why the heck is that soo difficult for me to do!!! I'm embarrassed to say I've been trying to hack my diet... (more)
I have a dog allergy I'd like to cure (my boyfriend has a dog, I know, it sucks), which mostly makes my skin react causing an itchy rash. I've seen some improvement already, but has anyone completely/mostly cured their allergies by eating a paleo... (more)
80% improvement. I'd be highly suspicious of anyone who claims 100% success when it comes to (non-food) allergies. (Not just as a result of Paleo -- but anything, including medication.)
I've been eating paleo, about 80/20, for around 8 months, and I've been noticing that every time I drink alcohol, I develop a hoarse cough while drinking. It happened again last night; I was drinking red wine, white wine and a little champagne at... (more)
Wines and champagne have a lot of histamine and usually sulfites. Do a fun experiment and see if vodka (or any other pure distilled liquor) has the same effect.
First, some background. After a lifetime of suffering with Topic-A dermatitis and fibromyalgia, respectively, my mom and dad got tested for food allergies and discovered many culprits, which, once eliminated from their diets relieved most of their... (more)
But how do you explain allergies to paleo-friendly foods like meat? I have friends who have "allergic" reactions to CAFO meat, but not grass-finished/antibiotic-free meat.
Hi I suffer from Hidradenitis Suppurativa and currently live gluten free. I came across this the other day: http://robbwolf.com/2012/04/09/putting-hidradenitis-suppurativa-remission-paleo/ There is a bit about nightshades in it. Since I have... (more)
I was just at a resta rant with a bunch of friends and they dared me to eat a slice of bread, because they reckon im overreacting and that bread doesn't do any harm. So I did, and 1 minute later I get uncomfortable chest pains. The look on their... (more)
Ok my husband and I are stumped. He eats Whole 30, no cheats,ect ALL THE TIME. He doesn't do any dairy. Takes FCLO, probiotics,eats fermented foods, drinks kombucha, coconut oil. Every time allergy season and the heat comes he develops a rash.... (more)
I'm starting a new relationship and just found out he has a shellfish allergy! I am a shrimp and crab lover! Can I eat she'll fish at all? Does anyone know how long it could stay in my system? Help!!!!
I have company in town, so as usual I loosened up my diet: a glass of wine, something fried, and likely a sauce thickened with flour. All of it totally worth it - only problem is the little patch of poison ivy I have seems to be flaring up.... (more)
In paleo-circles grains, legumes, dairy, etc. are generally considered to be problematic foods which cause adverse reactions in people due to us not being genetically adapted to them. And there is certainly some truth to that. For instance, folks... (more)
Well, why do humans have allergies in the first place? It's not all about food. It's about environment too and a growing body of evidence implicates the early childhood and maternal environment. Exposure to toxins in the womb and during breast... (more)
I decided to try the Paleo diet due to a wheat and corn allergy I've ignored for years. After only three days on Paleo, my stomach and digestive issues/pain were 100% GONE. Unfortunately, I've been really sick lately (flu, then Strep, then... (more)
I'm interested in trying out a paleo/primal diet for weight loss and anti-inflammatory reasons but I'm wondering how much I can actually incorporate into my diet given limited financial resources. How much meat do you really need to eat to be... (more)
I have suddenly developed a skin rash which itches a lot - mainly on the left side. The only things in my diet which have changed in the last 3 days are - I've been taking kelp pills, I've started eating 4 brazil nuts and 6 almonds, and I've... (more)
Excuse me, But where is the proof this stuff can get into our lungs but cannot be expelled?? Do you have any studies to prove this? I accidentally breathed it in once. Got a respiratory infection. Got better. But where's the proof that scar tissue... (more)
This is what Danny Roddy says about it : Increased Allergies? Having spent a fair-amount of time in the low-carb universe, I can say, without a doubt, that the amount of allergies paleo dieters encounter after engaging in this way... (more)
I'm not VLC or anything, but according to my allergist I did go from testing positive to almost all the allergens they test for in the skin prick test to none. Considering that a lot of low-carbers I know basically eat just muscle meat and cheese... (more)
Hi, there's an odd thing going on, I hope you can help me with this tricky issue :-) At first: Since milk contains a lot of potentially allergenc proteins, one must make a distinction: Casein a-lactalbumin b-lactoglobulin Bovine serum... (more)
Hi, I can't eat butter and ghee due to my dairy allergy. Coconut oil and olive oil both give my digestion real trouble. So the only source of fat for me currently is lard and goose fat - but they do not have such a great omega 3/6 profile. Tallow... (more)
I have fallen in love with Coconut over the few months, but A persistent cough that flares up at different times has me chasing dietary suspects, dairy, coffee or coconut seem to be the problem children. What fats can I turn to while me and... (more)
So I have been noticing lately, how all kids eat boogers. I tend to look at kids, to see how most things are done naturally. Is booger eating a natural occurance? Is there a reason we should/shouldn't eat our boogers? Any chance it builds... (more)
Saw this interesting article about peanut allergies. http://www.postchronicle.com/news/health/article_212386411.shtml?rssfeed. I was most disturbed by this quote from the article,"We are supposed to be able to eat peanuts. We've restored this... (more)
like all things, the real danger of "tricking" our nature will be seen after it goes wrong.
I could understand issues with dairy and wheat, they are to some extent, neolithic, so some people aren't adapted to handle them, but eggs have been in our evolutionary history for a long time, at least I think they have, yet many people can't... (more)
From "Lysozyme from Egg Whites" by Loren Cordain.. "Should everybody include eggs in their diet on a daily basis? Not necessarily, particularly if we examine the evolutionary template. Without question our preagricultural ancestors would have... (more)
I've eaten eggs my entire life, but since becoming Paleo over the past year, I've experienced a tenfold upswing in my egg eating. As a part of my routine, I've been eating 5-6 pasture raised eggs purchased from a local farmer. Until recently, I... (more)
I too developed an allergy to egg whites as a result of increased exposure. My solution has been to hard boil them and discard the whites and only eat the yolks. I don't experience any stomach upset this way and I get the feeling that the reduced... (more)
I've been on the CrossFit/Paleo path for about seven months and like so many of my fellow PaleoHackers -- I love it. Love how it has changed my life, my outlook, how I feel, how I look -- no looking back. Here's my question: I've noticed that, in... (more)
