My daughter and I both experienced pretty bad abdominal pain/ache with MCT oil, no matter how small the dose. (She was using in coffee, I was putting it in smoothies). We gave up on it and just have coconut oil instead.

Sounds like a gastrointestinal issue. Maybe gastritis or stomach irritation? You be surprised that is can cause all of those symptoms, including the back pain.

Medial knee pain in both knees probably involves articular cartilage damage in addition to a meniscus injury. An MRI with contrast of each knee might be helpful if the MRI you've already had doesn't show anything. Or, you could simply have surgery... (more)

Paleo is an anti-inflammatory diet as it cuts out the biggest sources of inflammation: n-6 fats, excessive refined carbohydrates, and the worst for many of us: grains (and also dairy if/while poorly tolerated). It emphasises nutrient dense foods... (more)

Are you eating it undercooked? If so, it's probably bacteria. Have you tried a different brand of ground beef? Bacteria can only live on the surface of meats, but when you grind meat, the very first sample that's infected will spread to the... (more)

First, as people have mentioned seeing blood when you have a bowel movement is a concern. However, would you describe it as a) blood in stool - it's in there, and stool is redder/darker, b) blood in bowl, or c) blood on the stool? The first (a)... (more)

I'm not so concerned with the cold as I am with the back pain. I'm sure it was just a random chill. The back pain has subsided a bit in general. Before, it would ache subtly as I sat in a chair. But now I don't really feel it. However, I do feel... (more)

Gluten can create migraines, allergies, you name it. If it's better on gluten-free, then you were gluten-intolerant and you didn't know it. Just like 90% of us around here.
