So, I have been pretty much 100% Paleo since the beginning of the year. I worked on it a bit during December but cheated quite a bit during the holidays. I am finding that I am hacking up some pretty dark phlegm (not a ton, but more than usual) in the mornings and last night I was pretty congested. I have been around some sick people lately but have not felt sick myself. I do not have a history of nasal congestion prior to going Paleo.
Anyway, my question is this, have other people experienced this when first going Paleo? I thought that maybe my body was doing a detox kind of thing but it has been a month so I thought this might be a little long.
Thanks a lot.
Are you Paleo or Primal? Silly, I know. But Paleo= no dairy...and Primal= some high fat dairy. (based on Mark Sission's take)
Try warm lemon water when you wake in the morning to break that up. I guess you could so it at night also!
Try some Mucinex to clear out that chest thing you have going before getting full blown bronchitis or pneumonia. If your congested it could = a cold by itself, or the same virus/bacteria you have in your chest. Drink a lot of water and tea with the mucinex. If you have a high fever, seek medical help and a short duration of antibiotics.
