Hi Everyone, Up until 2 months ago I was mostly primal, 3 eggs each morning, dairy daily, very little grain but I would eat some wheat when travelling without a problem. And had a couple of drinks every weekend. Then I started on Wahls... (more)
Why not try eliminating the dairy? It's one of those insiduous things that may not make you feel bad at the time, but a month off ... when I quit my cystic acne finally stopped (about 2 months later).
I just found out that I have early stages of osteoarthritis in my hand. I was hoping to eliminate one food at a time to see what helps. I am wondering if there might be a consensus on which AIP foods are the "worst" offenders for inflammation,... (more)
There are numerous websites on high inflammation foods. Yes, you need to find out what your triggers are but there are some that you would never know. It's best to stay away from the obvious ones that are listed on those sites.
I've been pretty strict paleo for 4 months and am dealing with hormonal imbalances and what I'm pretty sure is chronic inflammation. So many websites (including paleo ones) say to limit red meat as it is inflammatory. However, a lot of posts... (more)
I am trying to get rid of the inflammatory biofilms of bacteria in my gut. How do I know if I have harmful bacteria in my gut? Well I've had acne pretty much all my life even though I consume an anti inflammatory diet and for some reason my gut... (more)
It turns out saturated fats from foods like Coconut oils and from animal foods might cause leaky gut. A recent study published last year but rarely spoken of breaks current trends on leaky gut theories. "High saturated fat diet... (more)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20089789 This study states that WHOLE grains actually help decreasing inflammation, while only refined grains are increasing inflammation in our bodies.... (more)
According to 180degreeshealth: But even those healthy eaters who have heard about the harmful effects of vegetable oil and butter substitutes are still often making mistakes and taking in huge amounts of fat overall (burning fat for... (more)
Hello All, I am looking for some clarification regarding retaining water/ bloating/ and inflammation. I have been living day to day with very noticeable bloating and inflammation and I am not sure what is causing it. If I go for a run, I look... (more)
So I have read somewhere that inflammation could cause a spike in blood sugar. I suspect I have some yet to be identified food allergies, and it made me wonder if anytime inflammation is triggered in my body, if that wouldn't raise my blood... (more)
Inflammation lowers ketone levels in rats. I don't know of any studies in humans. Low stores of glycogen don't stop the body from raising blood glucose because the liver can produce large amounts of glucose. If necessary the body cannibalizes... (more)
Hey there, for the second time now that I've tried to incorporate more barefoot running / rope skipping into my training, I am experiencing a mad inflammation on the left foot. Exactly the same spot as it was in first place (only that back then,... (more)
Its not very in-depth nor is paleo mentioned but I thought it was somewhat interesting. http://m.espn.go.com/mlb/story?storyId=9463503
Hunter Pence of the SF Giants is paleo too. Pence does not make paleo look good (he is athletic, but not a good player) but Ibanez certainly does. At his advanced age, he contributed a lot to last year's Yankees playoff push.
I have been on strict paleo for about three years. About four months ago I cut out starchy vegetables and went pretty low carb. My diet for the last month has been pretty balanced with a 1:1 omega ratio, because sardines and omega 3 rich eggs are... (more)
Hey guys, I am a gym-rat. Or I was until I recently took up a landscaping job. This isn't powerlift for an hour and go home, it's squatting, kneeling and reaching for weeds and cultivating soil for 9 or more hours a day. It's breaking me. When I... (more)
I'm wondering what people have to say about fruit and inflammation. Can the sugar content of fruits cause inflammation to worsen? Or do they actually help control inflammation? And obviously there are different types of fruit. Are some... (more)
We are all hyped on being anti-inflammatory; we're told that inflammation is one of the principal causes of bad health What do they base their index on...? http://nutritiondata.self.com/ (more)
As the title states, does an excess of omega 6 fats in and of itself cause inflammation, or rather does it simply facilitate an overly aggressive inflammatory response to harmful stimuli?
I have anemic tendencies and digestion issues (mainly bloating, but also incomplete elimination). Part of this is genetic, due to folate and B12 metabolism issues (I'm compound heterozygous for MTHFR, and I have a variant in the TCN2 gene that... (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)
Have any of the of the paleo "heavy-weights" / drs or research ever tackled Dupuytren???s contracture vs diet? If so, would you be so kind in sharing the links. I've read anecdotal accounts of the potential linkage between each of (of combination... (more)
I'm new to paleo. I started it in hopes of improving inflammation. I have wicked bursitis in both hips and I'm only 40. I have felt just sort of unconsciously that sugar is the key to fixing my body, so I read up on Paleo and decided to try it. I... (more)
What are the realistic anti-inflammatory benefits of cooking with spices when the recommended dosage of eg. turmeric is 300-600mg 3x a day?
Hey everyone. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac, and even though I am only on my 3rd day of no gluten, I am concerned because my intestinal inflammation seems to be getting worse. It seems like almost anything I eat aggravates my stomach and... (more)
I have eaten a paleo diet for at least 6 months now. I am pretty sensitive to what causes inflammation in my body. I can tell by getting a stuffy nose. I find that I get stuffy from eating red meat, especially steak. Does anyone know why this may... (more)
I took an ALCAT food allergy test some years back and it came back showing me I was allergic to damn near everything Neolithic! Unfortunately, this includes whey and cassein. If I'm allergic to whey, how bad is it for me to take whey after a big... (more)
