It's good you are seeing a doctor. I agree with Nance. Another thing you have to do is STOP being on a restrictive diet. You have to eat and if it's non-paleo food that's better than starving. Ice cream, milk shakes, anything. Have you ever... (more)

I've had gastritis and it can be pretty disturbing. But, you can heal it with diet and proper nutrition. My first advice is to get off all PPI medication, if you on it. All the acid blockers compound and actually create the condition. Second,... (more)

Try eating just the yolk... you may have a issue with the whites alone (ovo leptins). See if you still have an issue. If that is the case, you may just have to eat something other than eggs, or just egg yolk.

If you get a stomach ache from eating it, don't eat it. If it is too salty, just buy pork belly instead, which is the same cut, just not cured. But this is pretty much a no brainer--if you react badly to eating something, just don't eat it, even... (more)

Costco sells fish oil in enteric coated capsules. This means they break down until they get to your small intestine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enteric_coating). They have a kind of gross vanilla flavor to them, though.

They don't sit well with you mentally or physically? Because if it is a problem with taste, you can chop the liver/kidney up and mix into a meatloaf or burger patties. You won't be able to taste it.
