This is more of a Primal Living question: Like a lot of people, I have a desk job. I'm a programmer and sit at my desk, listening to head phones, undisturbed for most of the day. For the last 10 years I've had lower back pain on and off. For the... (more)

You mentioned hip flexor stretching but little else in that department. Try some yoga poses - cat, cow, wag the tail, thread the needle (to stretch out your abductors), pigeon (same idea), lying knee hugs, lower body twist (lie flat on your back,... (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)

Well it could be, considering that certain mountainous regions (like the Himalayas) have a high silver content in the water.

I know this is a long shot and I know that if Grok had ulnar nerve entrapment, he'd be SOL, but is anyone familiar with any actual fixes or therapy for this, so I can avoid surgery? http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00069 for info on... (more)

Not sure about your situation specifically, but I've been sorting out some similar issues in my shoulder...and I found the solution by hunting paleo (info, not animals). Robb Wolf's podcast led me to Tim Ferriss' blog, which led me to his book,... (more)

First, you should realize that we are what we eat. Right? Second, you might realize that if we eat muscle meats then those are perfect for repairing and maintaining our muscle. But what if our joints hurt from exercise, injury, or accident? Go... (more)

I always make soup out of the bones after a roast chicken, or any beef or lamb cuts with bones. I save them in the freezer until I have enough or need to make another soup. I also save up the ends of veggies like celery rather than throw them in... (more)

Anyone ever tried the Master Tonic? Master Tonic: Evidently this stuff could cure the plague. I'm seeing a lot of herbalists and WAPF people online using this, especially with winter here. I've heard plenty of anecdotal evidence from my local... (more)

UPDATE: Wow. Now that I followed the link back, I have to agree with Patrik and others.. their claims at that website are too dramatic and overblown. Also a little disturbing is the fact that the linked website talking about the 'Master Tonic'... (more)

I like to avoid things like ibuprofen and other meds of that ilk. Mark Sisson had a good post on anti-inflammatory foods a while back. He listed things like: Garlic Broccoli Spinach Kale Bok choy Cauliflower Cabbage Onions Peppers But I want... (more)

Because I was looking for a specific list of paleo foods that have a positive effect on acute inflammation, and was not looking to debate the merit or mistake of attempting to reduce acute inflammation, I am reluctant to make Patrik's answer the... (more)

What is the paleo/primal method of dealing with the common cold? Say it starts in the sinuses with major congestion and travels down to make the chest crackle with bronchial problems. Does Grok make grog? Does he keep functioning because he... (more)

First, I think it's a mistake to think about what Grok would do. Paleo isn't about regressing to a primitive state. Grok didn't have antibiotics; that doesn't mean we should avoid them when they're needed. Having said that, for an illness like... (more)

I've seen many similar questions from people looking for some docs and healthcare practitioners that support a Paleo lifestyle or, at least, the vision of moderate good source carbs, that grains, sugar and omega 6 are bad, etc. So I wondered if... (more)

We know ketogenic diets aid in weight loss but as we've seen with paleo that's never the end of it, right? This week has seen some excitement around the ketogenic diet's effect of epilepsy. Using ketones over glucose in the brain seems to help cut... (more)

The epilepsy fix is not news, it's been known for nearly a century, and has been in clinical use for decades. Ketogenic diets help or cure many brain problems: Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, depression, Bipolar disorder, brain trauma, as well as heart... (more)
