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)

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)

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)

Jake, what do you mean when you say "Be careful with joint supplements also, as some of them can cause more harm than good", which supplements are you talking about?

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 recall that the Perfect Health Diet (2nd edition) mentions that sufficient levels of zinc and of vitamin c are required for the body to build its own collagen. After putting those in as supplements my lower back pain of many months has started... (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)

About a year and a half ago I was shoveling snow off a roof. One of the times I was shoveling, I felt like I pulled something in my chest. It hurt. The right side of my chest now has been cracking when I stretch it, and hurts when I move my... (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)

If you look at things in the "Nose to Tail" perspective, there is absolutely nothing wrong with eating the cartilage. Western Culture, and especially the industrial-minded American food culture, spurns many bits of the animal that other places in... (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)
