# 1 Is there such a thing as healthy canola oil?
Hello….Can you please help me to understand the controversy of canola oil. I have read all the bad things, such as the refining process and hexane etc. What about canola oil that is unrefined, organic, cold pressed and non-GMO? Is it considered to be safer or is there something still unhealthy with it?
# 2 New to Paleo… help!
I really need help. I am a mother of 2 boys( 3 and 5) I began the sugar detox one month ago, and now have adopted fully paleo. I am the only one following the diet in my family. My husband and kids still eat well but not paleo. So I am having to adjust my meals on top of cooking for them every day. When I’m hungry, I don’t know what to snack on besides nuts, veggies and/or meat. I feel weird having to cook a steak for myself just for a snack. And financially, it is not easy to do so. Until I get the hang of meals and snacking I’m not sure I can bring my family in on the life change. And I want to! I need more ideas. Are too many nuts bad? Do you have ideas, or advice for me? For instance I ate a salad (mixed greens, peppers, tomatoes, cucumber) with tuna and some chicken I had leftover. It did not fill me up. My family ate homemade pizza and it smelled divine. I had none. I feel like I had more than enough fat today with raw walnuts, pecans, avocado, and some olive oil… What do I eat?
#3 Coconut cream vs. Dairy??
I’ve just discovered your book and I am SO very excited to buy it today!! I have been suffering from and was diagnosed with severe chronic migraines since December of last year with no relief in sight. Since then I’ve given up prescription pain medications, caffeine, alcohol, and rebound causing medications and migraine trigger foods including but not limited to (most) unnatural processed foods, (most) dairy, (most) processed grains, have begun juicing fruits and vegetables etc. in order to help combat and hopefully diffuse naturally these debilitating migraines. I also want to say that I am on a prescription medication called Topamax for Migraine prevention.
Because of the “restrictive” nature of the migraine preventive “diet”- it just seems like a logical next step to begin eating Paleo. I am more than excited to get started.
I love cooking and have come across several recipes for meals that would be Paleo friendly save for a touch of yogurt here or a 1/4 cup of sour cream there. I was wondering if coconut cream could be substituted in dairy’s place?
Thank you for your time! I appreciate it so much!
#4 Testing for food sensitivities
I have purchased the Paleo Summit and there you mention food sensitivities but you did not get into details. I was wondering which of the tests are the most accurate to test for food sensitivities. I know of www.eneterolab.com www.ibtreflab.comm www.immunoscienceslab.comm www.metametrix.com and www.cyrexlabs.com . Are any of them good? I would really like to get tested but I hear that the food sensitivity tests are not that accurate.
I have done elimination diet but I have not really discovered anything through this diet. I do not suffer from any digestion problems so maybe that is why I did not notice really any difference being on this diet but still I cannot believe that I am not sensitive to anything. Your help is greatly appreciated.
#5 Adrenal fatigue with IBS, extra supplements needed?
I have recently been diagnosed with pretty severe adrenal fatigue and had a positive ANA test. I also have IBS (…I am a hot mess).
I am doing the autoimmune paleo protocol and I am on a supplement regimen prescribed by my D.O. in order to address these issues. I have also taken my foot off the gas with my exercise and basically just walk and do light exercises per Paul Chek’s book.
My question is, though my DO is good and takes a natural, non-Westernized approach, she isn’t exactly paleo. Because I don’t eat any fruit and a limited array of vegetables due to my IBS and those i do eat i typically cook (roast, steam) in order to facilitate digestion, I am wondering if I should consider a basic multivitamin for micronutrients I may not be getting much of like C, etc.
I am taking 500mg of Mg and 50,000 IU of D 1x a wk, and iodine as part of my Rx supplement regimen, but the remainder are specific to my adrenal fatigue and gut health.
