My brother thought he was coming down with a cold and developed swollen glands on the left side of his neck. We are told his means he's fighting off an infection somewhere in his body and there's no specific treatment. Any advice on what he could... (more)

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)
