Devout Paleo followers are as diverse as the occupants of NYC. If yesterday's blog, The Paleo Diet for Fibromyalgia, left you a bit confused and skeptical, you are with good company. As I was listening to my cardiologist talk and leafing through the pamphlet yesterday I proposed a question, "So, what do you eat for breakfast?" After all, that seemed to be the first obstacle to overcome with my western diet philosophy.
"1 1/2 cups of UNSWEETENED GREEK YOGURT with blueberries," he replied. "You'll get used to it. We don't need sugar."
"But, it says limited dairy," I questioned. "So, you eat dairy everyday?"
"Yes," he answered.
After an internet swipe that evening, I noticed for the first 30 days you should not eat ANY dairy. Must be an elimination type diet I figured. As I went through more and more sites I noticed some were eating Quinoa. Some were eating more starchy vegetables.
One thing that was across the board however, was NO GRAINS and BEANS. I guess except for some that want quinoa added to the menu. I decided to start with the later and remove all grains and beans from my diet. I did have a small 2 oz. of Kefir in the morning with my powdered probiotic. That, I decided, would have to stay. After all, my stomach was still very much the size of a watermelon.
With all the first week's trails and tribulations, The Paleo Diet Solution book really helped me tread lightly in new territory and listen to my body first.

The solution for chronic inflammation, regarded as the cause of most common modern diseases, has been identified! And it is not blueberries. It is something right beneath our feet-the Earth itself!
Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work-just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up. Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.
Earthing introduces the planet's powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy and how people anywhere can readily connect to it. This eye-opening book describes how the physical disconnect with the Earth creates abnormal physiology and contributes to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep. By reconnecting to the Earth, symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated and recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated.
This never-before-told story-filled with fascinating research and real-life testimonials- chronicles a discovery with the potential to create a global health revolution.
