Hello, I've been having some ear issues for the past two months. I would sometimes wake up with my right ear feeling swollen or full and pulsing at irregular intervals. It would come and go throughout the day and then would stop for a few... (more)

Recently, I've had random times where I'll feel my pulse in my left ear. It came one day and was gone the next. Today it came back. I was lifting sheet rock, so I don't know if it has something to do with more blood pumping in head (and ear),... (more)

I've had this constantly in one ear for like five years now. It's like an internal blood pressure and heart rate monitor as it gets louder/softer, faster/slower.

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)

I've been on Paleo for about 6 months now and got my first ear infection in the longest time just about a week ago. I'm taking antibiotics to cure it, and I finally am a little closer to where I can hear myself talk! It's been tough, but for me-... (more)

I have a 5 year old that has an ear infection. Of course the doctor prescribed antibiotics but we'd rather not. I'm wondering if we should use the antibiotics and give her some probiotics to help with the gut flora or just try garlic oil (or... (more)

Dairy can be a big contributor to ear infections. My daughter is paleo (mostly), save for the occasional treat and has dairy sometimes, too. That said, she currently has an ear infection, too. I am treating her with homeopathics and garlic... (more)
