After 2.5 years of telling my doctor that something wasn't right and being told I was "fine", I've found a new doc. He seems good, quite multidisciplinary, but he's never heard of Paleo (they're a bit behind the curve on that here in Germany) and he's concerned about my preliminary panel results without seeing a possible treatment plan in them.
My homeopath is generally happy with ourprogress but says I still have some acidosis, dysbiosis, and that my endocrine problems stem from the hypothalamus. Both men say I need to drink more water.
33 year old caucasian female, 1 year paleo (some safe starches now that the weather is cooling off), gluten and lactose intolerant, suspected endocrine disruption (certainly stress, possibly infection).
Primary complaint: hairloss and heart palpitations, postural presyncope. Hoping to concieve in the immediate future

What say you, PaleoHacks? What the heck is wrong with me? Is my cholesterol profile okay? Is this a body that could optimally grow a person? (Or what else should I know before I can say that?)
