    I have been eating more bananas, coconut, chocolate, and nuts in general. It's difficult to avoid sweets with kids and husband around.

    I did start taking fish oil, probiotics, and borage oil, so hopefully something amongst that works. Thank you, all!

    Chocolate makes me break out the most...

    Also my allergies get worse with bananas.

    +1 Dandelion is great, and detoxing does happen!

    Probably from toxin buildup from excess animal products and maybe a down regulation of metabolism if you are eating low carb as well.

    My scalp got really bad after starting paleo. I turns out nuts are what does it for me. When I first started, nuts were my "fast food" and I ate them fairly often. Eliminating them completely healed my scalp.

    No, Zach. In a family of 5 meat has to stretch, meaning smaller servings per person. We fill up on veggies/good carbs. Besides protein toxicity and metabolism issues would more likely show up through digestion issues and sluggish energy.

    From personal observation it's most likely the nuts. I haven't gone cold turkey but will soon.

    I've been taking Mark's Damage Control multis for 7 months now. They are the best sourced I've found. They are expensive though. My skin became noticeably better in 3 months. I never expected this. It even seems to be shrinking, and age spots disappear slowly.

    For 5 months I was taking only 1 packet / day. (There's 6 caps / packet.) Finally I read the dosage instruction printed clearly on the bottle. 2 packets are the daily dosage. So for 1 month I took 2 packet and felt worse. These multi's are way over RDA in most vitamins, minerals, etc. So I went back to 1 packet and feel fine.

    After reading the links in this thread I think I'll switch to his lower dose multi, it's from the same great sources. His DC is for athletes which I am not.

    My energy and metabolism is increasing slowly but steadly. I can't attribute this to the DC, it could all be the PB diel. But why stop something that's working.
