Currently i read an article about Garcinia Cambogia, the article was well written and all, but the mixed reviews about this fruit knocks me again and i have continued my research. Could any one explained me what is this Garcinia is all about... (more)
What has irked me since researching and trying a paleo-type diet is the overwhelming acceptance of pseudoscience by the "paleo" community. I cannot count the number of times I have seen "pH imbalance" listed as a reason for one's health ailments,... (more)
Every few years I wake up dizzy and have to take dramamine. Normally it reduces dizziness, acts a like a sedative, and causes no other issues. I've been eating paleo for the last few months and took some dramamine earlier today. I'm still dizzy... (more)
I am really surprised with what seems to be an overwhelming support of vaccination in the paleo community. Why is this? Anyone who has researched the issue cannot deny there is a very deep debate about vaccines and the health conditions they can... (more)
Hey so I was about to take some Emergen-C cause I feel like poop. Lucky me, the first ingredient is 'cane sugar' should I just go buy some plain vitamin c or can I take this for a fast fix..I feel like death.
My gramma (bless her) used to have me drip hyrdogen peroxide in my ears and let it fizz away at the first sign of a cold. It always seemed to do the trick. I have begun doing this again recently but am plagued by the thought that it could be a... (more)
As a preventative measure for what? Put virtually any human being through a full-body MRI, and every one of them will have spots that look like they might be cancer, but aren't. I think it would be a waste of time and resources.
Hi there! Does anyone know of any paleo-friendly dietician, chiroprator, naturopathic doctor,and/or medical doctor ..etc in Ottawa Ontario? or at least a Saturated fat-friendly practitioner in Ottawa? Thank you!
My Chiropractor, Dr. Bourgaize - Fisher heights Chiropractic is Paleo.. there's also Dr. Kelly Norman of Back in Balance Chiropractic and the Wellness Group in kanata.. don't know of any others
I went to the doctor today for what I thought were hypothyroid symptoms...All I got was an allergy prescription and advice to drink water, eat vegetables, and walk 30 minutes a day. I pretty much do crossfit & this MFker is telling me to walk... (more)
I am considering getting a bunch of medical testing done before the end of the year, largely for insurance-related reasons. I have some ideas about what I want to test, but I also want to tap into the wisdom of the crowd here for ideas I wouldn't... (more)
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)
I have the beginnings of my first headache since going Paleo. (I used to frequently get atrocious hormonal migraines each month before starting my period; this current headache is no where near as bad, but the pressure/pounding is still... (more)
Wednesday evening I got a headache, I had eaten some store-bought sushi and I am guessing that something in there (probably gluten) triggered it. By 1 AM I was in so much pain I went to the ER, I have no history of headaches but a significant... (more)
I've had two spinal taps, both 5 years ago, and completely understand the pain you're in. I literally felt like someone had taken a sledgehammer to my head and vividly remember having to crawl across the floor to get to the loo as I couldn't walk... (more)
I'm thinking of starting to use pseudoephedrine to give me more energy throughout the day, although I am aware the a paleolithic man never used any sort of medication, it's not food. What do you guys think? Thanks :)
How should we answer questions that may be beyond the level we should be dealing with? How do we know what that level is? (brought on by a particular question, but really applies to a lot of questions I've read here)
Just throw out the first thing that comes to mind, it's pretty silly to look for answers to serious medical questions at "Paleo Hacks," what's next "Hack My Brain Tumor"? People link to photos of their poop for God's sake.
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?
I've been strict Paleo for over a year now and I haven't been able to get off my anti-depressants. Due to stress at work I've actually started taking a low dose of Xanax (anti-anxiety) as well (when needed). I also have a script for Vyvanse (ADD... (more)
As I mentioned in another post, I just started a course of antibiotics (Flagyl) - 9 big pills a day for the next 2 weeks. The taste they leave in your mouth is AWFUL and lasts all day, I can't get rid of it. From my google searches, the key... (more)
Whatever you do, do take a lot of fermented vegetables (or fresh yogurt), to replenish bacteria that those pills are going to kill. Also consider taking probiotic capsules for extra dose of bacteria. This will help you recover faster.

I just found this very cool show on Netflicks. This is as close to paleo TV as I have ever seen. It follows two physicians from London as they go to remote places around the world to see what the people there eat, the state of their health, how... (more)
My husband and I just started eating Paleo 2 weeks ago and are really enjoying it so far. I've lost 5 pounds and am feeling much better all around, however I know I'm not taking in nearly enough calories. I take Adderall for ADHD and it completely... (more)

I have successfully used colloidal silver for decades and it has always cured what ailed me. In fact, I can honestly say that I have not been sick in over 20 years. Although, I do feel never having been vaccinated has allowed my immune system to... (more)
I've been feeling blah for a few months now, but the past couple of weekends have been exceptionally unpleasant. It's either been the relatively large amounts of dairy (conventional butter and some cheese; I normally avoid dairy other than... (more)
