Parenting / Low Milk Supply (breastfeeding)
« on: October 19, 2018, 09:56:18 am »
Hi there, having problems breastfeeding my 5 week old infant.  My milk supply is insufficient.  Only producing about half of what he needs.  Took him to a lactation consultant the other day, after observing that he lost a third of a lb.  He is still 3 lb above his birth weight (11lbs)  She weighed him before and after i breastfed him, he only took in 55ml.  He spits up plenty.  I have cut out dairy, but what really helped is when i went on the dr sears elimination diet for a few days.  Ate McDonald’s yesterday and his spitting up came back very good.  I suspect that he is reacting to dairy and gluten proteins making their way into my breast milk.  The dr Sears feels too restrictive.  I picked up some raw grassfed steak and pork chops. My intent is to go back to a partially raw keto diet that excludes dairy and gluten.  Any suggestions for boosting my milk supply?  I am supplenting him with a hypoallergenic formula by similac.  I would like to breastfeed exclusively.  I would like him to stop spitting up so much.

Off Topic / Are rabbit droppings edible/paleo?
« on: November 11, 2014, 09:03:06 am »
Hi guys,

I remember in grade 5 at a french-Canadian school watching an education video for kids where an Inuit boy was stuck outside in a storm.  In one of the scenes he came across rabbit droppings and began eating them ravenously.  During an intermission our teacher explained to us that rabbit droppings are a great survival food, and very nutritious.  I noticed that in french-Canadian culture discussion of eating animal feces and drinking animal urine for medicine are less taboo than in English speakers.  I can't find any sites on the internet promoting rabbit feces as a survival food, only vague reports of dangerous parasites/bacteria.  Was this just a wives tale?  Anyone have knowledge about this?

Anyone in Alberta Canada interested in networking?  My BF and I are both raw paleo.  Following the primal diet without the baked potatoes and bread.  Grass fed milk, grocery store beef, grass fed when I can get it.  Supplementing with rawfusion protein powder.  Oh, and I drink beer.  Send me a pm.

General Discussion / Egg shells dissolved in vinegar

If I dissolve egg shells in raw ACV, and then use the result as a condiment, is that a good calcium supplement?

I have been trying to get back in shape since September.  I have lost 41lbs since then.  About two months ago I hit a plateau and I came down with multiple infections.  I was taking birth control to try to elevate my iron levels, and also calm down my wandering eyes.  I ended up on four different types of antibiotics and could not really do my job properly.  I decided I had to have a raw milk cow share and I was surprisingly able to get my hands on one fairly quickly.  I went on the Primal Diet the same week i started the raw milk.  I stopped every pill I was taking also.  no more infections.  I have been doing 2 1/2 hours at gym daily including cardio weight lifting and stretching.  I eat mainly raw steak with a bit of raw pork, salads with dressing I make out of cold pressed oil , avocados, raw milk, coconuts, natural almonds, kale, egg yolks and some fruit.  I still drink 1 cup of coffee per day.  I still have nesquik in my raw milk.  I still eat an occasional chocolate bar. 

Anyway my brain feels funny now sometimes.  This has started happening over the last few days.  Like when Im stressing about something I feel mild pressure behind my eyes and kind of a warm/acidic feeling in my brain.  My thinking has not improved.  My blood pressure has increased.  Now its 120 in morning, 130 later in the day.  I think this is good, because it use to fluctuate between 105 and 115, and I had no energy like this.  Although apparently some people function fine like this.  It has been my experience that people with higher blood pressure are better at life in general.

I am 5'9 and down to 169 lbs from 210lbs.  I feel better, and I feel a lot less lazy, but I still feel like a useless piece of crap next to the men I work with.  I am hoping I will feel even better after losing another 20 lbs. 

Health / Vericose veins on vagina
« on: March 27, 2014, 12:19:59 pm »
After childbirth, 12 years ago, I got a single vericose vein inside my labia  It was dark purple, and noticeable to myself when looking in the mirror.  I got another one about 6 years ago, and this one looked worse because it was longer,  and it sort of went in and out, so I went to the doctor to make sure it wasnt an STD or something.  (I wore panties that were way too tight on a long airplane flight). The doctor said that it was a vein, that it was fairly common and that it was possible for the skin to thicken around it and making it less noticeable, but that it would probably like that for life.  I asked about surgery but he said they wouldnt remove them surgically unless they gave me pain.  So basically no change for the last six years.  But tonight, my boyfriend and I were having sex in front of a mirror and we both noticed that I looked better down there.  The skin had lightened on my vagina, and upon cliser inspection my veins barely noticeable!  I have been following the primal diet for about two months.  I believe eating raw meat and drinking raw milk are the reason for this healing. 

Welcoming Committee / Hi Guys
« on: September 21, 2011, 12:22:12 pm »
Hi guys,

I've been reading posts on here for a few months.  I started eating raw meat about three months ago.  Previous to that I was doing dr.Youngs alkaline diet for a little over six months, and the three months before that I was transitioning for being a heavy consumer of alcohol who ate a lot of cheetos, aged cheese, raw pickles and ice cream.

Basically I burned out really bad a little over 2 years ago.  I had allergy symptoms, asthma symptoms, heart palpitations, extreme fatigue, diziness, weight gain, loss of interest in laughing and socializing.  I went to my doctor, and he didn't really think there was anything wrong with me, or didn't know how to help me, so I struggled this way for months, trying to help myself by taking allergy medication, inhalers, quitting smoking, reducing caffeine consumption and stopping my workout.

I was looking all over the internet to find what was wrong, then I found that adrenal burnout matched my symptoms the most.  I went and got a saliva testing kit the same week, and did the test as soon as was possible.

It came back that my cortisol was below range, and my estrogen was also bottom of the range.

So that kind of helped a bit.  I learned I had to eat more greens, quit caffeine altogether, eat buckwheat ect.

I was able to control my symptoms, but I could not kick my one bottle of wine or more drinking habit, and I couldn't conquer my salt cravings either.

Anyway, I suffered for another year, then I finally decided I was going to go on a strict calorie counting diet and I started to lose weight.  Then I learned about the alkaline diet and I continued to lose weight.  Then I levelled off at about 140 lbs,and started feeling like it was to restrictive and wanted to go raw vegan. 

Then when I was doing a search on this on the internet and I learned that there was such a thing as a raw foodist that also ate meat.  I was captivated by the idea and started expirementing with this immediately after visting this site.

I eat grass feed ground beef, steak and liver raw.  Also organic free-run chicken eggs.  I eat sushi occasionally, the occasional oyster and I tried rabbit, chicken livers and buffalo.  I eat everything else raw too, except I cheat about once a week on average.  I eat lots of greens, sprouted buckwheat, raw almonds, fruit and sprouted buckwheat.  Lots of coconuts too.

So far I found that this diet in combination with taking an adrenal supplement containing freeze dried porcine adrenal glands before falling asleep and first thing in the morning has been really the only thing truly getting me to recover.  I actually cried for the first time in a very long time last night.  Sounds like a bad thing, but I hadn't really been crying at all since I burned out, and I used to cry quite a bit before.  Also, my vaginal lubrication has returned to normal.  I get wet at just about anything these days.  My laughter too, I can laugh without gasping funny, I'm starting conversations with people, flirting normally (for me), my lips are filling back in and losing that purple hue they had when I was "sick".  My ass it copping back out. My blood pressure is rising to normal.  I feel a lot better.

Now that I am feeling physically better by leaps and bounds, I am having to face the fact that I am actually depressed about my life, but it's good because now I feel like I have the energy to take action, and I am taking action.

One problem I am having is that I am gaining weight.  I desperately want to look lean.  And also to be able to climb a ladder at work without getting out of breath.  I ran all the food I am eating and discovered that I am eating upwards of 3000 calories per day.  About 1000 calories of that is coming from the almonds I can't seem to stop eating. Thing is I really seriously feel like I need that many calories.

So it got me to thinking that I am probably too depressed to lose anymore weight, and I am addressing that through changes in my life style.

The other challenge that I have is that I work in oilsands plant, and a lot of people would probably deny it, but I am breathing alot of flue gas, various harmful particulates, SO2, H2S ect, almost everyday, and I am working hard in it, so it's all getting into me pretty good.  I think after I finish my current project I will ask for a transfer to a cleaner location.

I really want to lose more weight.  I really want to be attractive.  I gained over three pounds since I started eating raw meat for 2 meals a day, and I am concerned about that.  I really want to believe that my weight gain is due to the meat rebuilding me or a reduction in fiber slowing my bowels, but I think I'm probably just packing on fat.

Anyway, my plan is to start partying more like I used to, and to be more social, and I'm hoping that will reduce my appetite and out a stop to my weight gain, because I really want to lose weight and be attractive.  Also, my goal is to rebuild my adrenals to their former glory and I do seem to be having some success at that.

Currently I have a slight fever.  There is a flu going around work.  I am excited to see how a flu manifests itself in the body of a raw omnivore.

I would be very interested in hearing from others who are coping with adrenal issues.

Have a good evening,
