I want to avoid Antiretrovirals because the side effects are horrendous, even in 2013, and I'm pretty sure they give you GI disorders. I know at least 2 people who were diagnosed with IBS after ARV therapy. That doesn't mean the ARVs gave them... (more)

First of all, I have to say I'm sorry you're going through this. Why do Protease Inhibitors/Intergrase Inhibitors cause diarrhea? The mucosa of the intestine is where active virus production takes place. Diarrhea is a common effect of protease... (more)

I've always researched the shots my children get and try to limit their exposure to antibiotics for example--but now I find myself questioning flouride treatments at the Dentist, meds, suggested care and of course diet suggestions. Has anybody... (more)

This is what Paleo fixed for me: http://eugenia.queru.com/2011/10/14/6-weeks-with-scdpaleo/#health and this is an update on it that I posted just a few days ago: http://eugenia.queru.com/2011/12/30/four-months-with-paleo/ As you can see, I have... (more)

After i started getting interested in nutrition, i have become ever more skeptical of the use of psychoactive drugs, and a lot of other drugs for that sake. I have family who works as scientists doing independent peer-reviewing of papers on new... (more)

This subject is a pandora's box if there ever was one, so be prepared to be surprised once you open it. As someone who was taking an antidepressant and an antipsychotic daily for about 4.5 years, I believe I have researched the effects of... (more)

Beyond that needed for emergency care would you perceive your healthy lifestyle enough? Would you consider a life without testing and intervention from the medical establishment? Being that many here are quite astute on how to read studies, why... (more)

They never have been for me. Tests are fun but I'll never be a regular visitor to the dentist or doctor unless there's something wrong I can't treat myself. I diagnose myself correctly 100% of the time before I visit. My health, I'm in charge, I... (more)

Does anyone have any opinions on reviving a diploma from here or a holistic nutritionist in general? I will have a kinesiology degree as well.

We have seen a person question if the paleo diet "has to be heathy". What I question is your determination of health itself. Let me define health is homeostasis. Nothing more or less. A balance of systems that lead to optimal function. That... (more)

What are your views on function medicine and naturopathy? If someone were sick would you send them to a functional doctor? What type of doctor might cause more harm for a diabetic?

Unmanaged diabetes would cause harm for a diabetic no matter who they went to. Some MDs are bad doctors and some naruropaths are quacks. I'd get a recommendation. Some of the MDs that I've been to in recent years were great, but then left for... (more)

I honestly don't remember the last time I visited a family physician or ingested an antibiotic because most of my common colds, stomach bugs, etc I've been able to work through on my own with time, rest, good food, and some holistic medicines. ... (more)

Eating right and exercising will only make you less susceptible and better able to fight off infections, both bacterial and viral. A Paleo lifestyle will not cure them. Up until the invention of antibiotics, infections killed a LOT of people. The... (more)

I have become very interested in health over the past few months... I am so glad I found out about the paleo diet and the dangers of sugar. I can't stop researching and learning about this stuff haha. I wish I could be a holistic practitioner,... (more)

Natural and Paleo don't necessarily get organized together. There are a LOT of natural healing protocols that are vegan, raw vegan, vegetarian, Michael Pollan-esque, zero carb, low carb, etc. What is it you really want to learn? There are plenty... (more)

I wouldn't even describe myself as a cynical person, but at this point, I don't think it's possible to save the medical-pharmaceutical-agricultural food industry complex. I think it would be a waste of time, money and the health of people if we... (more)

No. Put your faith in the alternative and holistic health field. The western medical machine has marginalized, demonized, and even tried to eliminate alternative holistic treatment for the better part of a century. The only reason these... (more)
