Just curious what your experience has been. I"m taking about a tablespoon to 1 1/2 tablespoons for 3 weeks now every day, so far my vision has improved and my muscle definition has also improved even though i barely ever exercise. I also feel more... (more)

I'm very consistent, about 5-10 times a day. Weird huh? I find this interesting because it's such a small number too. Most people wouldn't even be bothered by this, but I went ahead and got tested for allergies. Lo and behold, I now know I'm... (more)

I only sneeze if something obvious like a bunch of dust flies in my face. I don't sneeze every day. Allergies are a leaky gut issues. Heal your gut and your allergies will slowly get better if not disappear.

What say you all? And also what about bee propolis and royal jelly. I have seen two different primitive groups scarfing down those honey combs. I don't see a problem with separating the various goodies out. But then, what about veggie caps? ... (more)

Since childhood, I knew that if I ate raw apples, my throat would shortly itch like crazy. I was allergic, although luckily not life threateningly so, but didn't why it only happened with raw apples, not cooked. I guessed that cooking must... (more)

Well, now I understand more the link :) I do have pollen allergy (trees, not grasses), and I do have some fruit allergies. Probably only the oral syndrome, the itching around the tongue and so on... Funny thing is, it comes and goes. Sometimes I... (more)

Anyone tried consuming bee pollen or raw honey on a regular basis and notice and improvements? There are a lot of claims out there (e.g., http://www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com/bee.htm) and I'd like to hear some experiences. (more)

I was into raw cold packed honey and pollen for awhile, did lots of the stuff over the course of a couple months. It was definitely very tasty but I can't say I noticed any amazing health benefits from it. I tried royal jelly once and it was... (more)

Thinking about incorporating bee pollen into my paleo plan. There is a ton of information regarding this super food, but am curious as to other take on this? Has anyone tried it and if so what were the obvious differences?

I like this fairly balanced writeup: Bee Pollen Pollen, the male seed of a plant, is the primary source of dietary protein for bees. Bees collect pollen to make Beebread by mixing it with honey or with nectar and adding enzymes... (more)

If someone is purely paleo, should they by definition be immune to seasonal allergies to pollen and grass etc? And if not, are there paleo solutions to the seasonal allergy problem? Would paleolithic man have dealt with allergies? What's the... (more)

I've heard this too but the way I got rid of my seasonal allergies was to go grain and sugar free for a couple of months. After that I added back white rice, potatoes, and fruits in small amounts.

Is there more hype than substance surrounding this "miracle food"? Is propolis in the same boat? http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/11/24/honey-bees-for-cancer-treatment.aspx (more)
