Health / Raw blood (lamb and goat)
« on: July 22, 2023, 08:04:06 pm »
Hey, everyone! Question/concern.

It’s been years in the making and I have finally slaughtered and butchered my first set of goats and lambs myself at home. Six animals in all. I collected the blood. I have drank about 1 cup a day for about 2 and 1/2 weeks. I am wondering if it’s possible to overload on iron.

I figure most people don’t have access to this much blood at once. I was trying to take it as slow as possible as this is my first time consuming raw blood. Halfway through the third week I got a headache and then I got body aches all over. This was after opening a new jar from the third animal.

Just wondering if the beach ache and body aches are an iron overload. I have consumed the blood from two entire animals in 2 and 1/2 weeks and about 1 cup from the third animal. Two sheep, one goat.

For reference, I am a woman and am relatively small and short in height.

I stopped consuming the blood one night when I got a headache (I never get them) and thought I better stop consuming it for awhile. The following four to five days have been a lot of body aches and some very slight abdominal pain. This is all unusual for me.

Could it be an overload of iron? Does anyone else have any experience with consuming large amounts of blood in a short time frame. I felt amazing until I didn’t.

Thanks for any feedback!

Health / Tinnitus and Earache Won’t Go Away

Hello all! I’ll keep this short. I have a prolonged bout of tinnitus and earache in both ears. Does anyone have any food recommendations for helping to heal the ears and reduce inflammation?

Health / Allergies, Immunity, and Healing
« on: January 26, 2019, 03:35:20 am »
Hello, everyone!

I am wondering if anyone has some advice for how to possibly get over food allergies by healing your body and increasing immunity.

I have allergies to eggs, dairy,  and red meat. Makes eating raw a bit difficult. Especially in regards to eggs. I avoid red meat except for on occasion. I break out in hives and get itchy both inside and out whe. I eat red meat.

I think I either have low immunity or an overactive immune response to certain food proteins. Has anyone experienced healing of/from their allergies from going raw? Raw eggs are such an easy and accessible food for just about anyone but I have a definite immune response when I eat them. My ears start ringing, I get a rash, and I get an intense headache and some aching in my joints.

I am trying to build up eating them slowly, so I don’t know if I’m overdoing it. I’m just wondering if anyone has “cured” allergies to animal products by eating raw and if they have any advice about maybe what the best foods are to focus on for overall healing.

Thanks in advance! :)

Hello all!

I have just started transitioning to a raw paleo diet. I am coming from a year and a half of veganism, followed by reintroducing chicken and fish for the last six months.

I was diagnosed last year with multiple allergies (most of them to plants) but also a supposed allergy to dairy, eggs, AND red meat. I decided to get off of veganism and take it easy with chicken, seafood, and some green veggies for awhile and recently I’ve decided to reintroduce red meat, dairy, and eggs to see if the allergist was correct. Long story short...I think the allergist was full of bullshit.

I have had red meat a few times and have tolerated it just fine. I just reintroduced dairy in the form of Kefir and raw milk cheese and have been doing great with those. I have also been having raw eggs. The next step I’d like to take is to start figuring out how to have raw red meat in my diet. I eat and LOVE sashimi and always have (except for that vegan stint lol). I have always eaten my steaks and even hamburgers rare so I think I have a good foundation in understanding at least somewhat how raw tastes.

My concern is sourcing the right types of meats. I live in Knoxville TN and there are a few organic and local stores around...but I just want to make sure that I know where to start and how to avoid any pitfalls or mistakes. I also have a lot of questions.

Can anyone help mentor me in this journey? I have looked for info online but so far all I have found is this forum. Everything else tells you you will die if you eat raw meat. Lol. So, not a lot of info or guidance.

Happy to be here!

Es Branson
