Hey there! The last few days I had aching tonsils and thought this was because I was sleeing wrong. But today I went from feeling great to extremely sick, cold-like symptoms, dry eyes, aching bones.. Is there anything I can do? I have to... (more)
I keep reading you should take zinc at the beginning of a cold to shorten the length of it. Well, I feel a cold coming on, starting in my throat as usual, and the only zinc I have is Jarrow's Zinc Balance which has 15mg zinc, 1mg copper. The... (more)
I had about 3/4 tsp of sole this morning before my workout. I felt fine for the next few hours. I did have a rather salty lunch (broccoli with tamari), but it's common for me to eat a lot of salt. I've stayed very hydrated and had nearly 100 oz... (more)
Hi all, Thanks in advance for reading and responding to my question. I'm at a loss. Since having my second child 3 months ago, I've had horrible intestinal/gut issues. I denied them at first, then blamed dairy and decided to cut it out. I... (more)
Can hormonal imbalance cause you to be allergic to certain foods that you weren't allergic to before? For example my throat gets sore EVERY time I eat tomatoes. And for anything with wheat in it my tongue gets a little itchy. Can "having an... (more)
I'm actually having the same problem...things that I ate before with no problems now give me what seems like an allergic reaction. I'm far from stressed or hormonal....love to know what's going on as well...
Hello everyone. I went lacteo-paleo back in March 27, 2013. I do eat pasta once a week because I love it, but overall I gave up everything else that is pre-packaged (bread, oatmeal, boxed cereal, sugar, etc). Prior to going Paleo, I... (more)
Going Paleo helped my health a lot in this regard, I used to have allergies and now I don't, I rarely get a cold or flu even when my family gets it. Even if you are eating Paleo you might be eating something that you are allergic to or have some... (more)
I had been doing VLC paleo (under 30 grams net carbs/day) no nuts, no snacking, IFing, and feeling great. Last night I yielded and had some paleo chocolate mint chip cookies and pineapple and watermelon, (it didn't taste as good as I remembered... (more)
So hi guys, basically I haven't been sick in FOREVER like, I can't remember the last time I was sick. In the past week, I've contracted two separate (or the same) illness. On Saturday, I had the stomach virus in a really really horrible form. I've... (more)
Let me start out by saying that in May I temporarily moved to Australia for 6 months and was feeling fantastic. Plenty of energy and overall healthy! About 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat and then 2 days later had to get on a plane... (more)
Hi there...I felt fantastic the first 2 weeks I did Paleo...and now I am super nauseous and feeling awful, distracted, no attention span. Started a week ago, and now into week 2 I've actually been throwing up a little today. I'm averaging about... (more)
I've developed a sore throat, a bit of a cough/gunged-up chest and general flu-like symptoms over the past couple of days, which I know is down to running too much, copious amounts of exam stress and trying to eat low carb/low calorie whilst not... (more)
Why do I keep getting sick? I supplement with c, d, b complex, probiotics, lysine...I eat super clean. No added sugar, low carb, little fruit, high fat..I Exercise regularly. But I've been sick multiple times this year and even though allergy... (more)
How low carb are you? It's possible that your mucus production has been impacted, leaving you vulnerable to infections. Search for Paul Jaminet's writings on mucin and glycoprotein.
I have been stricken with a terrible sickness that has left me severely handicapped when it comes to physical and mental activity. It is still unknown at this time as my blood work, aside from a slightly lowered WBC, is normal indicating a... (more)
Came across this website last week, bought the ingredients and put it together. VERY strong stuff to take on a shot, but it works. I have heard people call this "fire tonic" or something along those lines. Apparently you are supposed to let it... (more)
So I had some Kambocha squash last night and the night before, totaling up to about 1 small squash over the 2 days. Today I feel terrible. I eat VLC, but I know the squash in relatively low carb to the other ones out there. But I do tend to get... (more)
I need to know a brand thats 100% gluten free, dairy free and soy free. Yep I have had the flu for a week now and just cant stop coughing and sometimes my lungs feel heavy! I don't think my doctors ever check what allergens are in my meds so I... (more)
So, I got sick, it happened. What is the best way eating Paleo when you're sick with the cold or flu? Should you limit carbs, go high protein/high fat/no carbs... What is best if you're going to be inactive? I regularly CrossFit 5-6 times/week,... (more)
(I think I may have jinxed myself answering a question about how fast recovery is when you're paleo lol) Been getting worse by the day, drinking water and resting, would it be that Im doing something wrong?
I got some sort of virus three days ago. I feel good when I wake up, but I feel like crap again every night before going to bed. (Although I do feel less crappy than the night before). What can I do combat this cold as quickly as possible? How... (more)
Hello Everyone, Earlier this week I felt a bit ill, and ultimately ended up craving foods with high salt content (soups, the dreaded Ramen Noodles, chips, etc.). As far back as I can remember, this seems to be a recurring craving whenever I am... (more)
Many electrolytes have a salty taste. Plus salt has a lot of trace minerals in it. Same thing as craving sugar when low energy -- body want cheap bioavailable resources I can use quickly.
The problem I see with paleo is that once you do it, you can't really go back. Have you ever noticed that after going paleo, you try to eat foods that you used to be fine with, and now they tear you up? Whether it's an upset stomach or a sugar... (more)
A nutritionist suggested I try a Paleo-type diet to help me with my allergy/sinus problems that I have been suffering with for as long as I can remember. I am a 31 yr old female and I am also trying to lose some weight (about 50 lbs). I don't... (more)
I don't know what could be causing this ill feeling I get in the afternoon. I'll give info about my life so you can see if anything in particular might be causing this. Or if you have experienced this yourself, what caused it, how did you get rid... (more)
Have you had your eyes tested? I work in an office and the other worker here gets horrible headaches if she stares at a computer screen for too long and also feels sick with flushes
Just wondering if working out while fighting a cold / flu is optimal. I strive to workout 5 days a week. Walking/ jogging and weights / pilates are my main staple. Is it better to fight through the sickness to get a workout in (not highly... (more)
