The major reason why anyone would be interested in finding out about the stoneage, or paleolithic diet would be because they have some concerns about their health. Whether this is simply wanting to lose weight, or to address some other specific health issue, I am hoping this website will give you some insight. Being a UK based website, and in the current climate, it is necessary to issue a bit of a disclaimer in case anyone decides to try and blame me if they feel unwell after eating a dodgy sausage. So here goes:

So, having got that out of the way..... the intention, here, is to give you access to information about particular health conditions that may be affected by diet. For the time being we are focusing on using the stoneage diet as part of an elimination process, to try and identify foods and food groups which might be causing you some problems.
We are going to introduce a section that gives actual case histories. We are collecting stories from all sorts of people about their experiences with the stoneage diet, so if you want to share your own story please get in touch.
Fenugreek reduces the increase in blood sugar levels after eating without raising insulin levels, and also reduces LDL and VLDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. It is a useful adjunct to help with some side effects of reducing carbohydrate consumption in your diet.
It is amazing what you can find out about how you are when you embark on an elimination diet programme. Once you have got over the first week or so, you might notice some significant improvements in one or more health markers. This may well be because you have hidden allergies, or at least, adverse physiological responses to foods that you either didn't know about or hadn't noticed.
Below is a list of signs and symptoms associated with hidden allergies, and also relating to nutritional deficiencies that might be the result of hidden allergies. These are all symptoms and conditions that have been known to clear up or improve once the original source of the problem has been identified and dealt with.
This is a brief distillation of a lot of ideas that have come from conducting various elimination diets with individual patients and patient groups over a number of years.
The main point of having it here on this website about the paleolithic diet is that the paleo diet is entirely suited to making the type of inquiry that typical elimination diets attempt to address, especially for omnivores.
