Suggestion Box / How to edit/delete posts etc?
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:07:06 am »
Didn't know where to post this either. I may not be very bright...

edit- So I'm guessing the options to modify/remove disappear after the post is a certain age?

Personals / Any hook-ups in or around the Vancouver area?
« on: November 10, 2013, 02:16:47 pm »
I know about eat-wild and other online lists but a lot of the listings are out-dated.

I'm looking for eggs I can eat raw or any other good finds. I don't mind going out of my way. Raw dairy can be got ahold of with a herdshare, I've gone that route but it was expensive and the quality and options made me give it up in the end.

Thanks  :D

General Discussion / How to remove chlorine from shower water?

I used to have a vitamin c shower filter, is this the best way to avoid breathing in chlorine?

General Discussion / Does anyone here eat kelp? Use Lugol's iodine?
« on: September 26, 2013, 10:10:50 am »
My healthfood store only has kelp in preparations like powder and liquid but said Whole Foods probably carry it. I'm wary of buying kelp from a supermarket because of how it may have been processed but are there good options?

I'm planning on taking Lugol's 5% solution for a while and then eat kelp for the long term to get sufficient iodine. There seems to be controversy on the safety of taking iodine preparations because of something that happens during conversion. Mercola recommends against it but others say it's worth it. It's toxic yet it eliminates toxins.

General Discussion / Now that Aajonus has passed away...
« on: September 16, 2013, 03:48:18 pm »
I'd like to ask everyone what they would think of someone like me making a .pdf of Aajonus's book The Recipe For Living Without Disease freely available online.

For what this book has to offer it's virtually unheard of. Amazon is selling copies of it for $50-$100, is still offering it for $30 (although I'm not aware of their stock situation), and not enough libraries carry it. Word has been spreading too slowly.

Raw paleo is popular online but there is a glaring lack of information on it. This forum for example gets many, many more viewers than posters. There are lots of people searching for information here but there's relatively little discussion because people's access to info is restricted. Some people cannot afford to buy material like this, and many others will likely never hear of it. A well-seeded torrent and word-of-mouth could help change this.

Aajonus passing on makes me feel like the time has come for his perspective on health and nutrition to reach more people and hopefully improve their lives.

Health / My E95 Food Tolerance Test
« on: July 26, 2013, 09:00:06 pm »
For those who haven't heard of this, they take blood and expose it to certain foods and observe how many anti-bodies are made.

The theory is that when large numbers of anti-bodies are produced in response to certain foods, those foods are being recognized as foreign and are provoking an immune response that may be contributing to illness.

The test recommends I avoid cow's milk, casein (milk protein, in lots of processed food), cottage cheese, American cheese, beef, and brewer's yeast.

There's some controversy around whether producing lots of anti-bodies to food is harmful or not,  but my results seem to reflect my reactions to food. After drinking cow's milk I always have a stuffed up nose the next day and feel groggy. When I drank raw goat's milk this never happened. Now I wonder if casein could be contributing to the brain fog and forgetfulness I've had all my life. There's evidence for a connection between casein intolerance, ADHD, and feeling spaced out regularly. Going dairy-free seems like it would be a good experiment for me, it would be hard though. I've been really enjoying butter lately >: ;D

Health / Infected Root Canal
« on: July 13, 2013, 10:52:19 am »
Ten years ago I had a root canal procedure without knowing the dangers of them. I had mine checked recently and surprise, surprise, it's infected.

I've increased my intake of spring water to help flush out toxins, and eat as much fat as possible. I have a consultation with a holistic dentist soon about getting rid of this tooth and detoxing. Does anyone have any advice for this?


The food given to the flies were extracts of bananas, potatoes, raisins, and soy beans.

"On certain food sources, greater activity and greater stress resistance was additionally observed".

I take this as more evidence that food has properties we don't understand or haven't yet observed.

General Discussion / Raw honey in plastic?
« on: April 24, 2013, 12:40:04 pm »
I love the local raw honey and bee pollen I get but the honey, I guess for ethical reasons is packaged in plastic containers. The pollen is in glass because it's frozen while fresh. I know some kind of bleach is made when honey is mixed with water, but does honey have any other properties that might leach chemicals from the plastic?

I'm sure they use a modern BPA-free plastic but I don't know much about plastic to be honest. I had a conversation with a guy while collecting water and he told me that old plastic is better than new plastic for storing water in. Any comments on this?

Suggestion Box / Forum for sharing food sources
« on: December 29, 2012, 05:40:00 pm »
Can there be a forum for sharing location-specific raw or high quality food sources? I wanted to ask for some good stores or farms near my city in the personals section, but realized it would be off-topic.

Money is tight at the moment and I'm not able to buy most of the foods I'd like to, but for a while now I've been eating wild red snapper raw from the supermarket. This particular store is a small chain and I know they're especially conscious of cleanliness from friends who have worked there in the past. I'm second-guessing the risk I'm taking because I don't really know anything about the shipping/handling practices of supermarket fish or how many people are eating it raw in this area. I don't want to freeze it before eating because I don't like it once it's defrosted. Thanks for reading  :)

Sorry about the dusty table, it was the only place with good lighting.

General Discussion / Donating Blood
« on: September 25, 2012, 01:23:26 am »
I feel like losing a bit of blood once in a while could be beneficial overall. You receive new cells, get rid of buildup and toxins at the expense of having to synthesize new blood, and losing whatever beneficial contents it had that the body can't replace itself. I originally first gave blood to find out what my blood type was because I was curious about Dr Lam's Blood Type Diet. What do the people here think of only filtering and recycling the blood cells via the internal organs? Is it critical or unimportant to lose some bad blood once in a while?

Welcoming Committee / Hello everyone
« on: April 05, 2012, 04:45:15 pm »
My healing journey has brought me here where I've already benefited from the wealth of knowledge that's shared here. I'm looking forward to sharing what I can and wish you all peace. My first and favourite RAF is salmon sashimi!
