Respiratory Infections Healed By Paleo

Dr. Cordain,

I have personally followed The Paleo Diet® for the last two years, and many health problems disappeared after a few weeks to a few months...

I often had upper respiratory infections, and they slowly healed when on The Paleo Diet and they never came back. Previously I used to have a cold every few months, and now this has improved so much that I only got a cold once in two years, and it disappeared in several days (before it took me over 3 weeks) on The Paleo Diet and adding high doses of vitamin D3. I also noticed considerable fat loss, although I was not overweight to start with (15% body fat); it has decreased now to 7% at the age of 63! I did not lose any strength; the weights I am using are at least 20% heavier without extra effort.
