Been on Paleo for about two months and it has been an absolute success for me. Lost 22 lbs, improved my cholesterol levels and I feel better. It's also cured my dandruff and my restless leg syndrome. Anyone else experience this?
Been strict Paleo for about 3 weeks (less strict, paleo-like for a while before that). I think my leg circulation is better. I used to have to get up very carefully after sitting working, because I had horrible pins and needles etc. Now I can get up more like a normal person, lol.
My snoring stopped. My headaches stopped. My GERD stopped. A long lasting intermittent cough that has stumped every doctor and specialist for a decade went away. And my dry skin is far less dry and doesn't flake anymore. I nearly never sunburn on my very pale Scandinavian skin.
I've never had bad blood pressure. It's usually been 110/80. On a lark I took my blood pressure at the drug store. It was 104/65. That's the lowest I have ever seen it in my entire life. Not really a cure, but I've heard that people with high blood pressure lower theirs on paleo and hey look it even worked on me.
Never had dandruff again after I stopped using conditioner... Guess that's kinda paleo...!
Off grains=weird eczema and dry skin on my hands gone... Sinus allergies way better. I recently noticed staying off nightshades especially tomatoes makes a big diff there too.
Going gluten free a year ago cleared up all of these weird skin rashes I was seeing. My hands would look scaly, like a reptile, and that rash is gone. That one sure stumped the doctors.
Each winter, I would get a wheezing cough. It sounded like a dog with kennel cough for about 6 months/year. I haven't had that yet in the past year. Only minor GI issues now. No acne. A brilliant "sheen" to my skin I've never seen before. Stunning nail growth (weird, but true!).
Going paleo, I noticed a big improvement in under eye dark circles. Less anemia, though I'm still healing. Even better looking skin/hair. Resolvement of dandruff (weird!). No edema in my legs anymore. I lost 10 lbs of "water" weight in the first week off of grains.
Most notable is an increase in my mood and energy! I always want to be active, running, playing, bike-riding, etc. I never could put on muscle, and now I'm seeing little muscles I never knew I had (joking... But they hid really well!).
I was diagnosed with arthritis at 11 y/o. That's GONE. I used to run and just collapse when I hit my ankle a certain way.
Also, a weird still resolving issue is gross idiopathic hematuria. My urine has always had gross, visible blood in it, and now it's less!
I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff. I was really sick for a very long time, and I'm only 21 y/o.
I have a cold. How can I get over it? 16 Answers
