Hot Topics / Covid - how is everyone
« on: Yesterday at 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.
