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)

Thc is extracted the best in coconut oil. So just follow a paleo brownie or baked good recipe and they come out pretty damn potent

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)

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)

I'd suggest getting a full panel of blood work done that measures A1C, plus lipids. Also, if you're looking to lose weight, take body measurements (a simple tape measure works just fine) - waist, hips, chest, arms, neck, calves. Weight is... (more)

Hypoglycemia is pretty unlikely... and a blood glucose monitor can answer that definitively. Remember even zero carb folks usually don't get hypoglycemia. More likely you have mild hypotension. Try getting your blood pressure checked. I think... (more)
