Off Topic / Censorship is Driving me Nuts
« on: August 01, 2021, 09:01:27 pm »
Just needed to vent about this and this is the only forum on the whole internet anymore that won't censor.

Apparently, it is now "in vogue" and extremely popular to dislike British people, simply for the sake of them being British.  I didn't know about this, and I think this is ridiculous, to hold someone accountable for what ancestors did 300 to 400 years ago, but that is the "logic" of some people.  I'm not British myself, but I like them and many things about their culture.

Anyway, on this other forum, I noticed a person who had this negative/harassing attitude toward British and basically asked them why.  My supportive posts and their answers were totally deleted.  There were no swear words, threats, or any epithets or anything like that exchanged.  There was absolutely no reason to remove what was posted.  It would have been educational for everyone on that forum to read the exchange. 

I am astounded at the censorship being propagated by governments and individuals with god-complexes.  Just allow people to be seen for exactly who they are.  If they want to harass others on the basis of nationality (which is discrimination by this person), then let the whole world see it.  And my support for the British person who was unjustly attacked should also be allowed to be seen.  Then let people decide who they want to talk to... who is exhibiting the hate in the situation.  It is not the side that you think.

I don't even know where it is possible to have an honest conversation with anyone anymore.  It used to be the internet, but now it is being so censored/regulated that there is no free thought or freedom of expression at all, to the detriment of all of humanity.  There is no learning or questioning anymore, just indoctrination and religious worship of state-sponsored ideology.  We are being forced to worship the state/government instead of our own philosophies.  Horrific.  Where can I go to get away from this crap?

Health / Tick-based diseases
« on: July 28, 2021, 02:52:14 am »
Did Aajonous mention anything about ticks? I saw an article about them and it reminded me. He believed that all natural bacteria, viruses, and parasites were beneficial. Curious what his thoughts were on tick & mosquitos.

Journals / Using Diet to Heal
« on: July 27, 2021, 08:29:23 am »
Reposting this again because when I finally hit "submit" the "DNS could not be reached" error message came up.  Hope I'm not wasting my time twice!

I've been here a while but have not followed the advice completely.  Right now my major problems are serious skin disorder (wounds take a very long time to heal if at all, I also have dry, flaky patches on my face that are noticeable even with makeup), anhedonia (lack of pleasure/motivation), weight gain, and muscle weakness/fatigue. 

I know the major thing I need to do to reverse this is stop eating sugar/caffeine.  A major part of my lack of motivation, I believe, is how I feel trapped in my life.  I can see myself doing the same thing forever, and nothing will ever change, and then I die.  It doesn't make me sad or cry; I'm not depressed.  But I just can't get any enjoyment out of my life as it is, and I don't have any motivation to try to "improve" myself for a life that doesn't please me.  My life is pretty much a pointless existence and my only "pleasure" lately is through consumption of goods (shopping), food (chocolate/lattes), and entertainment.  It's like an endless rewind of the same stuff over and over.  My life is "The Morning Half-Life Blues" by Marge Piercy.  I'm not really alive.

I don't know if I can do totally raw carnivore for healing for multiple reasons.  A major reason is that it's not possible socially.  I've gotten over my fears of parasites since reading some of Aajonus's ideas about how they can only be harmful in a body that doesn't eat a regenerative diet (they eat dead tissue, which is regenerated by the raw diet), and I do incorporate raw meat into my diet now.  I love raw chicken with honey and spices.  Even if I had the self-discipline to eat this way at all times, it would be extremely difficult socially.  I have to hide my raw meat eating habit now as it is because I do not live alone.  For this reason, I've thought of eating a more plant-based raw diet but still incorporating the raw meat.  I've been reading the authors Carol Alt (who eats all raw, including eggs, fish, and meat but a lot of produce) and Natalia Rose (she only eats raw produce, but cooked eggs and fish as well).  I think this would be best for me. 

I don't know how to get my motivation in order to be disciplined.  Otherwise, I'm a very responsible person, and the "anhedonia" doesn't affect my work life at all - I get everything done, on time or ahead of time.  I don't know where to start because a major reason for my indulgences in these bad dietary habits (sugar/caffeine) is simply to escape from my life.  There's a major emotional component; I feel trapped.  Many times I simply drive to get physically away from where I am.  Even if I broke free, I would hardly know what to do with myself, lol. 

Just sharing thoughts with, hopefully, people who can understand.

Personals / Anyone near PA/NJ?
« on: May 25, 2021, 05:50:01 am »
Curious if anyone on here is near PA/NJ?

I need to be more serious about doing raw food and having a friend would probably motivate me.  I think there are other topics on here that I'm more open-minded about and not very mainstream, so would be great to have a friend similarly open-minded.

Hot Topics / Aajonus & Religion
« on: February 02, 2021, 05:11:07 am »
Just curious if anyone knows what (if any) religion Aajonus followed?

I'm on another forum that's talking a lot about how the C19 vaxxine is part of the N//W//O, end of days, mark of the beast (Christianity).   Not sure if I believe that the state of the world right now is part of the end days, but just curious if Aajonus was also a Christian, believing in the oppression and trials of the book of Revelations.

Primal Diet / YouTube Censorship Against Raw Meat
« on: January 10, 2021, 01:16:02 am »
I was getting into watching youtube videos from Asra Conlu, a female raw meat eater from the Phillipines. 

Today I go to look at her channel and watch more of her videos.  All of the sudden it no longer exists.  There are only videos of other youtubers bashing her for her diet.  Her channel is gone!  See here: https://www.youtube.com/c/AsraConlu 
It gives a 404 error.

I'm going to see if maybe she switched to another forum that's not as affected by censorship.  Lots of youtubers are being shut down, videos taken down, for presenting facts in opposition to the agreed-upon story for the masses.

Hot Topics / Covid - how is everyone
« on: October 22, 2020, 04:04:29 am »
Just wanted to say hello. This board is less active now.  So disappointed that the hysteria over the flu virus has not left yet. It is def an excuse to push hidden agendas. The most dangerous virus is fear and blindly following "experts." 

I am really thinking about the future and what foreign country I can move to that respects individual freedom.  The US is not respecting anyone's freedom. I thought #45 was fighting for freedom but now he actually made an "Operation Warp Speed" for a vaccine. Of course no discussions are allowed on respecting individuals choices and right to control their own body.

What are the hidden agendas you see emerging in your own country? Or, did your country still respect your individual liberty?

Hope to hear from some people.

General Discussion / Tapeworms
« on: October 05, 2020, 07:44:12 pm »
Can someone provide Aajonus's logic on why having tapeworms is a good thing? I understand he believed a lot of bacteria, viruses, and parasite s are beneficial because they help cleanse the body, but I can't get my head around tapeworms or worms that potentially migrate to the brain. I will be buying his book when I have the money. Thanks.

Off Topic / Inspirational Music
« on: May 06, 2020, 01:58:10 am »
I'm not religious but I came across this song while listening to other music on YouTube.  It's called "Don't Tread on Me" by We the Kingdom.  Really a battle cry against abuse of power by those in power.  In our case, the devils would be the tyrannical leaders and the "king/crown" would be our own freedom.  I wish there was something higher that could be called upon in this time of oppression, but I don't know...

General Discussion / Question on Grass-Fed
« on: March 05, 2020, 02:23:54 am »
The website of the farm I am buying some organ meats from has this posted, and I find it contradictory:

"Grass fed beef.  We do not use Steroids, Hormones or Antibiotics to make our cattle grow faster or fatter."

Then right underneath -

"NO GMOs.  We grow ALL our feeds - corn, hay, and soybeans - from pure seeds."

Now I am suspecting that the cows aren't really grass-fed, but simply fed organic corn/soy. 

I guess I have to ask the farmer, but I need to know if this is the way grass-fed animals are finished or if cows are supposed to eat corn and soy after eating grass for a certain period?   Or is this simply someone trying to sell "grass-fed" beef that is actually NOT grass-fed at all? 

I'm still not liking the taste of liver, even their "grass-fed" kind.  But if it's not actually grass-fed, then that's something different...

General Discussion / Drinking Water
« on: March 03, 2020, 03:56:29 am »
I'm curious about peoples' opinions on drinking from natural water sources. 

Do you think that humans can adjust to any parasites/impurities that naturally occur in untreated water?  I'm thinking about giardia lamblia as an example.

I usually drink distilled water, but then there is the concern about the plastics leaching from the gallon jugs.  Who knows how long it has been stored in that container and at what temperature.  I also realize any distilled water or filtered water would be unnatural for our ancestors.  But I suppose the filters are necessary to keep out chlorine and who knows what else that is put in water today.

People used to drink from untreated streams and wells and springs all the time, right?

Hot Topics / Coronavirus Fear Tactics
« on: January 30, 2020, 09:28:15 pm »
Is anyone else so fed up with the government fear tactics regarding flu viruses?  They are definitely using it to push the government control agenda/totalitarian state. 

Every two years its a brand new boogeyman - SARS, Swine flu, West Nile virus, Zika.  Now the chinese coronavirus boogeyman. 

Another case of crying wolf.

Hot Topics / Paleo Diet for Heart Disease
« on: January 29, 2020, 03:08:56 am »
This may be a hot topic, I'm not sure.
I'm curious if anyone has any sources of information on reversing heart disease with a paleo diet containing meat. 
It seems there are a lot of stories coming out about veganism harming people, I have no doubt they are true.  But the one thing that a plant-based diet does help with is heart disease reversal.  People with heart disease have benefited from plant-based diets. 
I don't believe a vegan diet is natural, though. 
So I'm wondering, if someone has heart disease or symptoms of it, how would it be remedied on a meat-containing diet?  Are there stories of reversing it with the paleo diet?  When I say heart disease I don't mean the "little symptoms" like high blood pressure (which I think is easily remedied with a paleo diet); I mean arterioscloersis - hardening of the arteries/clogged arteries.  How does one reverse this without a plant-based diet?

I was reading an old blog post today on perfecthealthdiet.com and it said that its possible that all chronic diseases are potentially caused by infections.  So if heart disease is caused by a pathogen, then maybe the "paleo" answer would be to increase foods containing vitamins A and D because they help the immune system. 

Thoughts?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Omnivorous v. Carnivore
« on: January 15, 2020, 09:34:19 pm »
Hi,
I'm just wondering what are everyone's thoughts on the trend of not eating any plant foods.  It seems there are so many people now who are saying that carnivore is the "human" diet.  Maybe they are just being extreme; I'm sure humanity ate some plants.  What do you think of a mixed diet for healing, like the Terry Wahls protocol?

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Recommended Books
« on: September 17, 2019, 06:59:51 pm »
Besides "We Want to Live" does anyone have book recommendations for the raw paleo diet?

I'm aware of one other book by author Melissa Henig which also discusses raw meat but I haven't read either.

Science / Amazonian Tribe with Healthy Heart Despite Inflammation
« on: September 17, 2019, 07:12:34 am »
https://asunow.asu.edu/20170317-discoveries-despite-meat-heavy-diet-indigenous-tribe-has-world’s-healthiest-hearts-—-why

The Tsimane have the healthiest hearts in the world despite high levels of inflammation.  They also have intestinal parasites. 

It seems inflammation is not the cause of heart disease and autoimmune diseases.  The Tsimane eat lean wild meats.

So many factors at play here.

Off Topic / We want to live website
« on: July 23, 2019, 03:23:29 am »
If you go to the we want to live website there are some paywalls so you can't read articles that interest you. Now that Aajonus is dead, I'm curious who owns the site and is benefiting from his work.

Science / Raw Ostrich Liver and Meningitis
« on: July 02, 2019, 08:38:28 pm »

I hope the site allows me to post this link to "Meningitis by Toxocara canis after ingestion of Raw Ostrich Liver" appearing in the Journal of Korean Medical Science.  (Evil site would not allow me to post this with the link, so just do a google search for it.)

Really interesting - mom and dad and their son all ate raw ostrich liver (presumably from the ostrich farm that the parents run).  The parents did not get sick but the son did.  However, the parents blood serum showed an antigen to T. canis despite their being symptom-free.

So this is supporting the idea that just because a virus/bacteria/parasite is present, it doesn't necessarily cause disease.  If it did, then the parents would also be sick. 

Any ideas why two people would have the parasite and not get sick while the son got sick? 

It makes me think of the Herpes virus.  I think that almost everyone has the Herpes 1 infection (cold sores) but most of the time everyone lives with it symptom free.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / New and Concerns
« on: April 30, 2019, 07:34:41 pm »
I've read the posts that say parasites are good and they are only in the bodies of people who don't eat a healthy raw diet.
So what if you haven't been eating a healthy raw diet and want to start eating some raw foods?  Will you get parasites because you didn't eat healthy before? 
I know some have gotten sick from eating raw meats in the beginning.
Thanks.
