General Discussion / Re: Vegetable Juice
« on: April 11, 2011, 05:37:25 am »

Health / Re: Help, lost lot of weight - maybe ulcers
« on: March 05, 2011, 04:17:39 am »
my symptoms have been changing, i will probably write a detailed write up as soon as things settle down.

All my tests (blood, stool, ultrasound, H. Pylori) came out normal.

They scheduled me for endoscopy & CT scan.

my current symptoms are extreme hunger (i wake up twice at night to eat) - i am beginning to wonder if i parasite issues that are causing my stomach to produce more acid.

Any ideas or guidance on how to identify or resolve parasite issues.

I used to use humaworm in the past but with hyperacidity/ulcers it may not be a safe option.

How about zappers, i know GS uses one.

Any  ideas?

should i follow the ayurvedi approach Or should i attact the H. Pylori angle?

what do you guys think?

You see i am confused. Ayurveda sez avoid banana - but other folks beleive that banana is good for ulcers.

Also Ayurveda sez avoid honey - but other folks beleive that manuka honey is good for ulcers.

i m confused.

i recently had ulcers, and according to ayurveda i should avoid it.

 yes i am in an emotional crisis, i do have weird waking and sleeping hours.

prior to this incident i was doing both cooked & raw, as i had just started on raw animal diet did not get a chance to convert fully to raw.

i went through the list you suggested i saw the bee pollen and royal jelly are to be avoided by pitta, actually just before this incident i had started taking chunky honey from 'honey pacifica' it was fortified by royal jelly and propolis.

Also i was applying sesame oil externally (this too is in the avoid list).

What seems to be helping is cabbage & carrot juice, Slippery elm & glutamine.

i have never felt this awfull ever before - going through hell. THanks for all your help.

I have plagued by health issues for the last one month. Initially i thought it was gallbladder stones but now its looking to be ulcers in the stomach.
I discuss what may have caused it later, any suggestions to tackle ulcers?

I used to sit zazen with this guy (Chinese) who would talk about his tooth aches. My conclusion is its hard to connect spiritually with a constant toothache or other physical distractions. Even though I've convinced myself anyway that the spiritual traditions of 'leaver' type societies have more meaning for me, if someone wants to believe that for them killing animals is nor necessary or is bad for them...who am I to say definitively what type of 'health' has more value in this life. Prior to modernity the veg diets and lifestyles of China and India were not so detrimental, so this might set an artificial standard for people trying to uphold the same values today.

i guess the pesticides wiped out accidental insects/eggs from the hindu vegetarian diet, so now in the 21st century - vegetarian hindus are having health issues.

Infact the best health i have ever known was as a vegetarian, but a lot has changed in 22 years.

every time i eat meat, i actually thank the animal that died to provide food for me. I dont overeat - so as not to disrespect the animals spirit.

Never felt like this when ate cooked.

That book by Rupert Sheldrake re "7 Experiments..." has the most fascinating look at some of the fascinating ways that scientists indulge in quackery, deception, unscientificism ;D and general self-serving stuff (like the rest of us) that essentially makes the term "scientific" laughable.

Then he wades into the fact of the observer affecting the outcome. Then the difficulty and unlikelihood of most scientific stuff being ever checked out by peers, then the business of being afraid of anyone seeing their "lab notes".
Pretty interesting stuff, i think i will get the book. Also i rememeber doing science experiments in school, we would never get the expected result - so used to fake it. So even as kids science taught us to fake lab results to match theory. So when we reached college and did the same - it did not look like forgery, as we were conditioned since childhood.

i used to have lots of desi ghee (as ayurveda loves it) - but i realized that i did not digest it well. Now i have given it up - i really dont miss it.

Ghee is nothing but clarified butter, however its heated to remove all milk solids.

But i dont do well be with either butter or ghee, organic/grassfed irrespective.

i understand the social thing, thats why i bought the adidas kanadia trail running shoes.

Pretty close to bare foot (at $40).

If you like connecting to earth why not try some qigong.

General Discussion / Re: What rawpalaeo foods are you eating right now?
« on: January 21, 2011, 06:24:49 am »
when in office i sometimes run out of food i get from home, since no good food (ones that we like) are available around office - i now have resorted to a unique snack.

japanese dried fish - called niboshi. its very satisfying and fills me up after some time, unlike other snacks which are addictive and keeps you munching.

Has anyone tried that here or does anyone know that is it cooked before drying?

I remember as a kid when we visited coastal fishing regions they used to dry raw fish in the sun, so i am guessing this is raw too.

i would stay away from these pricey gimmicks.

i also agree with kurite.

Also anything that kills bacteria can be harmfull to humans (think antibiotics etc).

Asian foodmarkets usually have an extensive selection of fresh seafood. Lots of wildcaught products too. There are several in my area.
 thanks, i will ask around.

But what about people in the Palaeolithic era who lived in the Arctic where it is 6 months night?
i believe excess of it is stored in the body, so i guess they would be accumulating in the summer.

New York, being on the coast, should have easy access to cheap raw seafood.

Those living in NYC/NJ,  where do you procure your raw seafood from?

AFAIK there isn't much vitamin D in fat of the land mammals.
Duck egg yolks are quite good, as they contain 6 time more D than chicken ones.
But my main source is Blue Ice - 2000 IU a day :)
strangely, i did not do well on blue ice. carlson vit-d drops seem to work for me.

If you want something fun, a proper adult hula-hoop is fantastic.  I often do it whilst watching TV and i barely notice I'm exercising.

Another great one is a small rebounder - again great for watching TV.  In fact, if I'm getting excited watching some sort of telly-crud like America's Next Top Model, or The Biggest Loser, I can bounce around like a maniac, shouting insults at the crazy judges/contestants.

Brussels sprouts taste foul when cooked, and are a notorious part of really awful boarding-school-dinners. I know they are pretty tasteless when raw, as I foolishly ate some thawed ones a few times as a child. Egg-plants? They are always cooked, I seriously doubt they are that pleasant to taste when raw, either. I know for sure that raw lettuce could never be a solid staple as it's pretty tasteless unless one adds lots of sauces onto it(adding sauces is not very Instincto a habit!).

What it boils down to is that unsuitable non-palaeo foods like rice usually need to be cooked and have sauces added to them to make them more palatable. But the whole point of Instincto is to avoid all processing.
The indian(hindi) word for eggplant is "baigan" derived from "be-guna" - which means "without merit", basically dont bother eating.

my used to own farmlands in pakistan( this is another story), my dad said as kids when the locust swarms would eat all the wheat crop. they would just cook and eat the locust - he said that they just tasted like wheat plant.

i guess thats why the so called vegetarian hindu's (my parents are hindus) kept good health (inspite of their so called vegetarian diet), they would eat only locusts as their meals when their favorite wheat crop ran out.

"Study finds probable carcinogen in 31 U.S. cities' tap water"

Tap water is all I drink :(

Ever since i reduced my water intake my digestion has improved. My uncle used to work in water research dept, he said around 25 yrs back that drinkable water will be finished in next 20 yrs.

My uncle was'nt wrong - They just keep changing the definition of DRINKABLE water
