About a month ago I was forced into the paleo lifestyle head first because of recent discoveries of allergies to wheat, corn, rice, beef, pork, and bananas. Because of the many problems within the American medical system, it took nearly 5 years... (more)

Yep, it's CYA (cover your @$$). Heck, even my prenatal vitamins say "if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor before use".

So the question is are you doing it to treat a symptom...i.e. sick care (allopathic medicine), or are you paleo to improve and maintain health i.e. health care (holistic health). My answer is almost always the latter.

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)

As a nurse in a nursing home I can say for sure...NOPE. The system is corrupted by drug companies. Anytime a new drug comes out, it shows up first in nursing homes. Wonder why...hmmmmm.

I've used a number of them (whoever is cheapest for a given test... they all use Labcorps so it doesn't matter) and I think it's terrific. The only issue is that you need to read the results. Reference values don't always means "normal" or... (more)

Hi, I've been working for a few months in a diagnostic radiology. I wouldn't worry much about that radiation. Every plane flight will expose you to a similar amount. Though it is correct that pilots have to give feedback about their time up in... (more)

If I happened to want to start on the Paleo diet, what personal benchmarks should I measure before I begin and track on an ongoing basis?
