I can't give you an educated answer, but with this logic should I roast up one of my dog's legs because I am allergic to his fur and dander? While three legged dogs are cool and all, I do not think this will cure my allergy. I think I will let him... (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 have pretty bad seasonal allergies in the spring time. During that time of year I sneeze upwards of 50x/day depending on the day and the pollen levels. Also depends on the food I have eaten and my alcohol consumption. During the rest of the... (more)

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)

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)

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?

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)
