I make a nettle leaf infusion every night to drink throughout the day (google Susun Weed for info). I add squirts of liquimims brand Mega-Mag 400 mg and drink it throughout the day.

Does it have to do with the freshness of the almonds? Where they were grown? How they were grown? The type of almonds?

I often hear that walnuts are not paleo because of their high omega 6 content. Instead we should focus on macadamias and cashews. I see that the latter's omega6/3 ratio is better. But what is the evolutionary argument? Did Grok not eat all nuts?... (more)

I love nuts too, but they do contain lots of fiber. Fiber is fermentable and can potentially promote the overgrowth of gas-producting/symptoms causing bacteria in the small intestine. Just cutting back a bit should help.
