A 60 year old friend of mine has been experiencing very severe knee pain. She went to the doctor, got an xray and was told that the cartilage is missing (or reduced) at several spots, and years from know, she'll be a candidate for knee... (more)

1. Do not buy Glucosamine Chondritin - there was a major recall / legal suit against companies selling GC as its recently been proven to not do anything positive for cartilage or synovial fluid. 2. Your friend could just have... (more)

Firstly, I am not restricting calories either on purpose nor very much. However I have found it difficult to eat enough calories since I've been on paleo. I under-eat by around 500-1000 calories a day typically given my activity level. Lately I... (more)

You say you're not "overtraining" but your injuries suggest otherwise.

First post, long time avid reader. After a few years on the weights and in really good shape I decided to give crossfit a try and I believe I over did it. I'm 99% sure I've developed costochondritis in the left side of my sternum/chest. After a... (more)

Sorry, buddy, the only thing that ever cured my incidences of costochondritus was time and patience. Take it easy for a week or two - like, seriously easy, don't exercise intensely at all - and it should go away. If it doesn't might be something... (more)

I suffered a considerably less severe (than what you're describing) tear on my inner right meniscus. After forking over the copay for the initial diagnosis I hit the netwebz and formulated my own rehab plan. The key is to strengthen the... (more)

I've been working on a torn meniscus for a bit now. Things are going pretty well, but I still relapse if I slack on the exercises. I'm wondering if I should be specifically timing my bone broth and collagen intake to maximize their therapeutic... (more)

I don't think you should be timing them, really. This is the regiment I followed for a month when I fell and hurt my knee: Bone broth, 1 cup a day Collagen types I and III (1x a day) Collagen type II (5-6 hours apart from the other collage... (more)

I am new on Paleo. I made a crock pot rib bone stew and used organic beef broth. I am reading a lot about bone broth. Is this for cooking to replace store broth in a crock pot? Or are there other uses?

Some people drink it straight. But its much tastier in stews or soups. Its because bone broth has really good minerals + gelatin + glutamine + glucosamine, which is a potent combo, especially for bone or gut healing. Its actually pretty... (more)

I was thinking about this earlier while thinking about menudo as I was munching on a piece of oxtail. When I tried to make bone broth, it pretty much failed, even though I used cartilage-y pieces of bone. The broth wasn't gelatinous at all. But... (more)

I don't drink bone broth anymore. Instead, I eat tendon pho. Why? Laziness! I'm too lazy to make batches regularly, and it smells funky to me, even laced with cooking veggie smells. Tendon, along with meat on the bone, seems like it would... (more)

My dad used to say cartilage makes your bones strong, and showed us how to "eat it like an animal" when we were little. It's basically a bunch of extracellular matrix with collagen mixed in, so as far as content goes it shouldn't be any trouble,... (more)

A question like this, at least in my opinion, is far outside the bounds of the PaleoHacks forum. I can understand your desire to progress in your career, and that it seems like a deeper/louder voice may be a means to that end, but it would be... (more)

I'd at least try the doctor to help figure out what is wrong. Whether you choose to heed his advice or do your own "natural" remedy is up to you once you have a diagnosis.
