I have a vitamin C and zinc deficiencies and was put on supplements, but don't understand how it works exactly. Why are doses proscribed in increments and not in one megadose if someone is deficient? And how long does it take to correct a... (more)
I started primal/paleo two weeks ago. Last week i developed itchy spots on my inner thighs, on fatty deposits I've had all my life. The itch spread to the genital region, very similar to a yeast infection, so I tried what has always worked for... (more)

I started on January 15th I think. I haven't used shampoo since then. I have been washing only when absolutely needed with BS, and occasionally ACV. I had started in the first week with a BS paste, but due to recommendations kicked it down to a... (more)
Like the title says. I was able to go to BS every 3 days, and at the advice of another question i posed I downed my BS concentration and it still worked fine. As an aside, do you guys ACV often in the beginning of no 'poo? Back to the issue. ... (more)
I never used baking soda and only used vinegar for a very short while. I found that it was enough to "wash" my hair with hot water. You go through the motions of washing, making sure to massage your scalp with the pads of your fingers to loosen up... (more)

I have 2 German Shepherds one male and one female. I fed them Blue Buffalo for a while and my female always had very itchy skin. It would get so bad in the summer that she would need to get a cortisone shot once a year. When I went paleo I... (more)
Please google "raw food diet" for dogs. There is absolutely NO commercial, cooked, processed diet out there for dogs. Dogs are carnivores and thrive on raw meat and bones and whole prey only.
For the past couple weeks, especially first thing in the morning, I feel like my house is 90 degrees. I've also been waking up in the middle of the night sweating, even though the fan is on and the heat is only set to 70 (I live in Virginia). My... (more)
I had what I think was a Gastritis attack a few months ago and while recovering from that, I started to notice a "needle-pricking" sensation on my lower back and sometimes in between my shoulder blades. It doesn't hurt but it feels almost electric... (more)
Have any of you experienced all over itchiness on your body that was directly related to a certain food? I'm asking for my husband who eats mostly primal (very little dairy but still eats rice and potatoes). He's gluten-free, as well as caffeine... (more)
I am a 27 year old female, relatively active (meaning I workout 3-4 times a week), and have been eating paleo for 6-7 months. Sometimes when I go to the bathroom, I feel a sharp pain and I find little traces of bright red on the toilet paper. ... (more)
So, the past year or so, I've had a resurgence of urticaria all over my body. It's been a major setback in my life, as when it comes up, I can do very little about it and it is impossible to ignore. A few days ago, I started taking half (5mg)... (more)

I've been using the same thing, it has cleared up some acne on my body just great. However, it made it worse at first. I also have noticed that itchy feeling all over.
So I've battled eczema my whole life, and in the last 5 years it's just gotten progressively worse. I'm chronically itchy at least 70% of the day. I had allergy tests done by drawing blood and the results came back that I was allergic to just... (more)
I have an itchy mouth roof near the back, it appears now and again but I can't seem to single out a food cause! I have eaten dairy today but I've eaten it before and I did not itch. I did have a coffee could it possibly be that? My seasonal... (more)
When I get an itchy roof of the mouth I always think its seasonal allergy related, I had it a bit this year but it would come and go and I didn't have many other symptoms, so it could be food related as well.
I'm always itching all day and night, I'll be watching a movie with friends and all I want to do is itch my body. My eyes are itchy also and I have dark circles I assume it's some sort of allergy but it might also be dry skin which I suffer on my... (more)
I have been poo free for a few weeks. I had to wash my hair once about 3 weeks ago because I was filthy from working in the garage but other than that I am just using water. Prior to going poo free I had an itchy scalp and some flaking so my... (more)
I'm tagging this "See a doctor." If you have any random disturbing symptoms, they are not a normal part of transition to paleo and a physician should be consulted.
