General Discussion / Have I caught something from eating raw meat?
« on: January 30, 2016, 03:44:33 pm »
I gave the raw primal diet a good try, but it didn't work for me. I found the raw dairy beneficial, and maybe the raw lambs liver, but not the raw meat. My primal diet experience culminated in me buying and eating some of the organs and fat of raw, organic, farmed deer. I butchered it myself and cleaned it as best I could. It was gross and didn't make me fell good at all, but I was never sick.  However, about 2.5 weeks later I started feeling really weak, and Ive had that feeling for about 6 months. I actually feel like Im getting weaker.
Maybe its not related to what I ate, but I think it could be. Could I have caught something and if so, what, and how can I treat it?

General Discussion / Freshly squeezed juice is pasteurized
« on: July 29, 2015, 01:43:52 am »
Fruit is my main source of carbs and I love it. Ive been drinking top quality "freshly sqeezed, not-from-concentrate" juice for many years, as well as fresh carrot and beet juice from the store. Ive just found out that all the companies i buy from pasteurize their fruit juice. I knew juice concentrates were bad, but i just didnt think the "fresh orange juice with pulp", which was always a lot easier to digest and less disruptive on my blood sugar, would be pasteurized. I drunk only my own freshly made juice today and felt another step up in my health.

What sort of diet, lifestyle and supps would you recommend for cancer?

General Discussion / Define raw cheese - Temperature and cooking
« on: July 18, 2015, 07:53:44 pm »
Its very hard to find raw cheese in Australia. Although raw milk is illegal, raw cheese isnt, as long as the cheese is heated and processed to a point that satisfies the ruling nazi party. I contacted a cheese maker who imports raw cheese from Switzerland and requested some raw cheese heated no higher than 105 degrees (I read this was the point in which enzymes were destroyed and the cheese was no longer "raw"). He said that is illegal, and I believe he said all raw cheeses made or imported into Australia had to be heated to at least 122. If I buy raw cheese cooked to this degree, am I wasting my time/money? Do I need to make sure it is only heated under 105? I bought a cheese kit online so will make my own if required but that will take a lot of time/effort to make and mature. Oh, and Im after hard cheese like cheddar. I dont want to just let milk sour and scoop off the fermented curds. Tried that and didnt like it.

General Discussion / Is slow cooking on low temp ok?
« on: July 14, 2015, 01:38:16 am »
Im finding all this raw meat/fat eating quite hard. Sometimes I feel better eating it, sometimes worse. I nearly always feel better after I slow cook my food. Its so tasty and easy to digest. I made some super fatty pineapple pork steaks and cooked them on low for about 6 hours and could swallow them effortlessly like a pelican. Eating that amount raw would be stressful and take me about an hour. If I roasted them id be in pain and exhausted for hours. Is it ok to eat low temp slow cooked food? Is it far worse than raw? Should i perhaps do both?

Primal Diet / AV's daily diet
« on: July 11, 2015, 01:12:33 pm »
Does anyone know exactly what AV ate daily? I read he ate up to 25 eggs daily? I also saw in that ripleys video he ate high meat every day.

General Discussion / Just bought Lamb fat
« on: July 11, 2015, 11:56:43 am »
I just bought some lamb fat from my butcher. Unfortunately I couldn't get organic this time, but it is grass fed- is that a major problem? Also, I think I saw a pig getting slaughtered and they cooked the hair off the skin; is that a problem with the fat I have in that it has probably been singed like that?

General Discussion / High meat - procedure and tips
« on: June 22, 2015, 11:05:41 pm »
So Im experimenting with high meat. Ive left a lambs liver in the fridge now for about 2 weeks and it looks so bad i think it might be good enough to eat. How do i know? Also, i just cut up some chicken and put in a jar to go high  like AV does - should i leave in the sun, the cupboard or the fridge? Any tips on how to go about this safely is appreciated! Cheers!

General Discussion / Raw nuts and raw milk kefir
« on: June 18, 2015, 12:07:37 am »
Normal dairy makes me sick. Raw dairy is tolerable and makes me feel good if i dont consume too much. Nuts are the same but sometimes I get pain and discomfort after eating. I just soaked some raw nuts for 48 hours and ate them with no ill feeling. I normally eat roasted nuts. Also, I just made myself some raw milk kefir and had no ill felling. It was amazing. So basically raw nuts and fermented dairy are considerably easier for me to digest and assimilate.

General Discussion / Raw starch (carbs)
« on: June 14, 2015, 10:24:11 am »
Anyone eat raw potato or other raw starchy carbs? Im eating raw sweet potato and although it doesnt taste as good as if it were roasted, I digest it way easier (i.e. I have get no pain). Im now starting to ferment some potatos to better the digestibility and hopefully taste and texture. Anyone else do/try this? Im also going to start fermenting oats and see how they make me feel.

Health / How much raw protein is required to heal?
« on: June 08, 2015, 11:57:19 am »
I recently received an email from someone on the primal diet who told me that between 500-950grams of raw protein per day is required to heal. Can anyone comment on this? I vaguely remember AV saying he eats up to 3 pounds of raw meat a day.

General Discussion / Raw Animal fats vs
« on: June 07, 2015, 03:48:53 pm »
Some interesting comments on raw animal fats. The last paragraph quotes AV.  Just wondering if others here get most of their energy from raw animal fats, and if so, how much do you eat? I vaguely remember Robb wolf recommending "good fats" such as avocado, nuts, olives etc. Am I wrong in concluding that the REAL good fats are raw pasture raised animal fats? Has there ever been a more vilified food than animal fats, and yet logically, it makes perfect sense that it is our bodies preferred energy source and has been for hundreds of thousands of years?

"The difference between cooked animal fat and raw animal fat is night and day. One is corrupted and one is pure and natural. The problem with 21st century common thinking is that people consume corrupted fats everyday in cooking oil and processed foods. Humans are fativores, we just love fat, and since people have been deprived of natural raw animal fats, they gravitate towards any fat and these seed oil fats and cooking oil fats and trans fats are very very much inflammation causing and damaging.

Raw animal fat is very good for all of us. The key is raw. The animal fat must be raw. Raw ANIMAL FAT is superior to raw fruit fat. Raw fruit fat is a far secondary fat to raw animal fat. Raw animal fat can come from grass fed land animals and ocean wild animals. Raw animal fat can be likened to a “parent essential oil / fat” – unprocessed – as pure as mother nature makes it. This pure raw animal fat hydrates us, lubricates us and nourishes us. It is raw animal fat that is missing on the modern 21st century diet. "

"For each individual the proper ratio of raw animal products may vary. Experience has shown me that over time raw animal products produce the calmest, most balanced human nature with excellent mental clarity. For the last few years my raw animal products consumption has been approximately 80% by volume of my diet. I restrict high fructose fruit to one a day and almost always eat it with a high fat food such as unsalted raw cheese, raw butter, raw cream, raw milk, raw egg(s), avocado and/or raw coconut. As an example of the extreme, the Eskimo ate 99% raw animal products and lived free of degenerative disease before white men introduced cooking cauldrons, breads and refined sugar to them. By several accounts of world travelers and explorers they considered the Eskimo the happiest of all races. Their first case of dental decay was 50 years after cauldrons, breads and refined sugar were introduced. The dental caries only existed among those who ate some or all of white man's food. Cancer never occurred among primitive Eskimo. "

General Discussion / Finally got my organs!!
« on: May 27, 2015, 11:54:08 pm »
So I finally got my organs after nearly 6 months of trying! They are in my fridge right now, covered in shit, digested food and blood! Its beautiful.

Firstly, I already made a thread on hunting deer to obtain them; and what to ask the farmer who was providing them, so Tyler, sorry for starting a new thread on a similar topic. Please delete them if you want as they are no longer relevant.

My questions now are regarding safety and preparation.

1) Firstly, I got nearly all of the organs/glands of 2 organic deer. They killed them the very morning i picked them up. I left in the morning and drove to the farm which took me about 4 hours. They were in the cold room when i arrived. Unfortunately, the stomachs were so full it couldn't fit in my esky with ice. Neither them or I had done this before so i didnt know to just empty them there. What we did was just let out some air, jam it in the esky and try and get home quickly to get them refrigerated. Unfortunately, it took me about 5 hours to do this. It wasn't a hot day or anything but i wonder if this is an issue?

2) When i finally got home i started to cut and clean. Man its a big job. I spent about 2 hours and they are still not clean. I was very hesitant about where to cut so what took me 2 hours would probably take an expert 30 min. I was also tired after such a long day so i wasn't very thorough or motivated. The organs are now in the fridge, they have been cleaned but they are far from clean. I was going to clean them again in the morning. Is this ok to leave them like this over night or do i really need to clean them properly ASAP? Also, can anyone give me any tips or advice in cleaning the organs: do they need to be squeaky clean? Do they need to be cleaned properly before frozen? I found this video on how to clean a stomach:

3) Obviously i will be eating these raw, but id like to get some advice on how to eat them. Once they are clean, can I just freeze them and take them out when i want them, and eat them raw? Should I freeze them for 2 weeks to be safe like ive read elsewhere? Here is a video of Sabertooth preparing a stomach and blood shake:

General Discussion / Getting Animal tomorrrow. Help with cuts
« on: May 26, 2015, 07:47:02 pm »
I mentioned in a previous thread that I was going deer hunting to obtain organic, naturally raised animal organs that are made unavailable in Australia due to the Draconian legislation. However, my hunting guide has kindly told me about someone who will provide me with these organs without the expensive and effort of hunting.

The referrer just called me and asked what exactly it is I want as its an odd request and most of these cuts are just binned. I was a little caught off guard and said that I basically want all the organs. I was then told I really need to be more specific and create a list as they are not really experts on butchering and could miss something (for instance the little thyroid or parathyroid gland).

Im making a list and was hoping others here could add to it so i dont miss anything. Im trying to obtain the most important glands.

Small stomach
Large stomach
Small Intestine
Large Intestine

Maybe some bones and bone marrow

General Discussion / Preparing wild game and eating raw
« on: May 20, 2015, 02:34:31 am »
I live in Australia and ive tried vigilantly to obtain a healthy, naturally raised organic animal from a farm to slaughter humanely and consume in its entirety. Unfortunately due to the strict laws, it is near impossible to obtain. I know these laws well because ive contacted numerous state and federal departments. I basically have 2 legal options and 1 "grey" option:
1. Raise the animal myself. Kill it on my land. It stays on my land. Only myself or my immediate family can consume it.
2. Hunt wild game. Take carcass back to my land. Only I can consume.
3. Some farmers may sell me a live animal not knowing what I will do with it. I can bring to my rural property. Kill myself and consume

I have to go with 2 as I dont have a rural property. Unfortunately, ive never hunted nor slaughtered an animal. My plan is to go deer hunting. I want to eat much of the organs raw to help heal my poor health. Ive seen some vids on youtube on how to cut one up, which i can do, but i dont know how to prepare the intestines, stomach, gallbladder etc. Can anyone recommend how I go about doing this? a book perhaps? I just read "the diet of the mountain men" but that didnt disclose much detail. IS there anything i need to be concerned about? Ill aso be chasing wild goats, rabbits, turkeys etc

General Discussion / New tripe eater
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:27:36 pm »
I just bought some tripe and tried it for the first time. Its not bad. The problem is I believe it has been boiled and dyed prior to me receiving it. It was white. Should I try and get fresh tripe for taste and nutritional purposes?

Display Your Culinary Creations / Primal shake recipe wanted
« on: April 17, 2015, 02:27:00 pm »
I want to create a primal shake consisting of blended raw animal parts and vegetable juice. I want it to contain a little bit of heart, brains, liver, stomach, pancreas, muscles, bone marrow, blood etc., - basically a little part of every bit of the animal, plus enough tasty raw vegetable juices and flavourings to reduce the foul taste so that I can drink it or sip it like a soup. Im guessing tomato, celery and beetroot juice would be good.

Primal Diet / Raw fat
« on: April 14, 2015, 07:22:57 pm »
I generally eat really light during the day before having a large dinner. I have a protein shake for breakfast, and eat fruit and juices and nibble on nuts until the afternoon or dinner. I started eating this way due to digestive problems/fatigue and its the only diet that helps. I haven't yet tried the raw primal diet though so Id like to start eating raw fat during the day to see if that helps  Ive replaced my breakfast wpi shake with raw milk, eggs, cream and butter (to good effect), but i would like to try replacing the energy I receive from nuts and fruit during the day, with raw fat. Is this practical? I was just going to ask my butcher for pasture raised organic lamb fat trimmings. I want the fat from all parts of the body. I believe i have gallbladder problems so i don't think i have digested fat properly for years and i suffer from major deficiencies.

Raw Weston Price / Raw butter question
« on: April 11, 2015, 11:04:25 am »
I just bought 2 kg of raw butter. I was wondering if I should keep it in the fridge , and how long before its inedible or goes high?

Primal Diet / Eating raw chicken - "22% have Salmonella"
« on: April 08, 2015, 12:38:41 am »
Im just starting the primal diet. Have eaten raw lambs liver and kidney from a family farm for a few months and havent had any problems. Bought a chicken today from an organic farm and ate about 100 grams. I wanted more (lots more!) but I thought id wait a few days to make sure I was ok. Am i just being paranoid? Is it just the factory farmed chickens I need to be cautious of?

I read this:

“According to a Food Standards Australia New Zealand survey 84% of raw chicken carcasses tested positive to the food poisoning bacteria Campylobacter and 22% to Salmonella. This is similar to the findings of other surveys overseas. Notified cases of illness from Campylobacter and Salmonella in Australia have almost doubled over the last 20 years. OzFoodnet estimates there are approximately 220,000 cases of Campylobacter infection each year with more than 75% transmitted by food and 50,000 cases of Campylobacter infection each year can be attributed either directly or indirectly to chicken meat."

"Food poisoning results, on average, in 5.4 million cases a year including 120 deaths, 1.2 million visits to doctors, 300,000 prescriptions for antibiotics, and 2.1 million days of lost work each year. The estimated annual cost of food poisoning in Australia is $1.25 billion."

In addition:

"Consumers should not assume that free-range or organicconditions will have anything to do with the Salmonella status of the chicken."

But then I found:

"Here’s what they found: 38.8 percent of the conventional birds were carrying salmonella, versus 5.6 percent for the organic birds"

There is also a video on youtube of a guy who has been eating raw organic chicken for 10 years and he says he has never been sick.

Im very confused. My health is really bad and I cant afford to get salmonella.

Ive had chronic fatigue for 18 years. I think most of my problems relate to digestion, but i could be wrong, as i have so many painful and debilitating symptoms. I have a gnawing pain in my midsection that extends to my back that gets worse after eating, and based on the location, I think its probably my gallbladder, pancreas or liver. It could also be my spleen, kidneys or adrenals. I also have food allergies and feel nauseous after eating. Ive had nearly every medical test performed and nothing major has shown up. Im not overweight, I eat well (whats well!?!) and I take very good care of myself (sleep, exercise when able, environment etc). Im 34 years old.

Over the last 18 years Ive tried nearly everything to heal myself, and about 2.5 years ago I tried the paleo diet. I ate no grains, just cooked meat, fruit, nuts and some potatoes. I stuck with it for nearly 6 months and I felt absolutely terrible and have ever since. It made me so sick. I definitely have a problem eating large amounts of meat. A few months ago I tried eating raw meat and felt fine. It digested easily and was like i hadn't eaten at all. I was pretty stressed as i ate it as i was afraid i would get sick, but i wasn't, and felt good.

I just bought the book "we want to live" by Aajonis Vunderplanitz to learn more about eating raw meat but also eating specific glands. It was a great read but it didn't have anything in there about eating the raw glands of animals to heal your own corresponding glands. Id heard him talk about this in an interview and he said it was in his book, but clearly not this one.

My question is: can someone recommend a diet for my condition if it is a pancreas or gallbladder problem? Can someone tell me where i can find Aajonis's work (or other reputable sources) that discuss on eating glands to heal corresponding glands.
