Raw Weston Price / Re: Raw Food and Bone Broth
« on: February 20, 2014, 12:11:48 am »
Well, I"m thinking about all this and you all make alot of sense. Thanks.
So, it seems, all the health benefits of gelatin/bone broth and getting the benefits of eating the whole animal with their higher gelatin content in feet, heads, and such only is necessary for cooked food eaters.

It is clear that -- at least for cooked eaters -- gnawing on bones (to get that connective tissue) and feet and ears and skin in the diet provides alot of necessary health benefits. I like Ray Peat's article on gelatin for that.

But I was wondering while I'm eating all raw if I needed the skin, feet and other high gelatin parts. It is difficult to eat "the whole animal" when it's raw. You all seem to be fine on just muscle and organ meats as long as it's raw.

Are you worried about eating endotoxins? It is something to be worried about. The solution is in the quality of your food. Get the good stuff. Pay a little more, eat a little less.

Around here,  I think you'll find we love bacteria! Our bodies are full of bacteria. Almost literally full of it -- and yet we are very healthy! And our ancestors ate lots of fermented foods loaded with bacteria. So, right there we know there is some faulty reasoning somewhere with that video. Most bacteria are very good for us -- for the same reasons in the video. The dead bacteria carry epigenetic information that is vital to our health.

His video highlights a good reason to be mindful of the source of your food, the quality of your food, and the health of your food. The good stuff is good for you. Sick meat will likely make you sick, as well. I'm no expert in endotoxins, but I suspect those are the poisons of pathogenic bacteria, in other words, the wrong kind of bacteria. The good bacteria would not produce unhealthy toxins. Otherwise, how could our ancestors have lived so vitally? Conventionally raised animal products, in which the animal is very sick due to poor diet and poor environment, is likely to be overrun with pathogenic bacteria that would produce endotoxins detrimental to our health.

Did you know they purposely inoculate feedlot-raised beef with endotoxins in order to make them grow fatter and faster. It also makes the cows very sick -- but who cares about that! Americans will eat anything that can be made to taste good.

Bottomline:  Don't be swayed by these 'test-tube,' narrow-minded scientists. You know that extremely healthy people ate meat for thousands of years. You know fermented foods are among the most healthy. And, now you're leaning that bacteria -- the good bacteria -- are your friend. Therefore, you know that the science is off in some way, or based on a faulty assumption. In this case I believe the assumption is that feedlot raised, sick animal meat is 'normal,' or should be the basis for further conclusions.

If all I had to eat was conventionally-raised, sick animals, gosh, I don't know what I'd do. I might just become a vegetarian as well.

My nephew is on the Kerry Rivera protocol. We are amazed at the worms coming out of the little boys butt!. Many are as long as 12 inches! His autism hasn't improved yet.
 I tried the same protocol and nothing visible came out. Since I eat raw meat, many would suspect me of having worms, but again, none that can be seen with the naked eye.

General Discussion / Re: Does anyone here eat kelp? Use Lugol's iodine?
« on: September 26, 2013, 10:33:19 am »
All I can say is that I muscle test better on Lugol's than kelp preparations from the health food store. Also, there are some posts on here somewhere where people have recommended people who harvest the seaweed themselves. Maybe do a search to find those references.

The Lugol's has helped several members of my family in significant ways. I've read Brownstein and Abramson and Flechas and all those iodine doctors and I think it's okay. I take between 10 to 30 mgs  a day.

Now, the best way to get iodine is to eat seafood. And be sure to eat the fish skins for the selenium that is important for balancing iodine in the thyroid. Sardines are the most inexpensive way, I do that too. Quality ocean caught fish are out of my budget right now.

Congratulations on your success so far, Boris.
And glad to see you on the forum.
There's plenty of what you need and want on the webpages -- keep reading.
I'm no fundamentalist, and I"m pretty healthy to begin with -- I eat half my veges raw and half cooked. Seared meat is alot better than cooked well-done, so I do that sometimes.
One thing I've learned from this forum is the instinctive sense, following my own inner instinct, and trusting myself with these food choices.
Looks like you're on a good path.
Best of luck to you!

Health / Re: Looking for answers in the power of breathing
« on: July 19, 2013, 09:54:30 pm »
There's a book called, "One Small Step Can Change Your Life." Get it at the library. From what I'm reading here, that can help you doing something new. It helps you avoid the mental resistance.

I was inspired about breathing from Pam Grout book, "Jumpstart Your Metabolism." Breathing has a tremendous power in our health. I agree with you. Go for it, if that's where your instincts are leading.

and I really like the website -- lots of great information there. Especially on the buteyko technique.

But definitely read the book "Small Steps" -- I can tell you the method, but without the rationale provided by the book it certainly sounds too simple. Basically, just start with one minute of practice a day. Sure, that won't change your health overnight. And if one minute is too daunting, start with 30 seconds. You don't even need to believe this works. But this reduces the resistance in your mind that sabotages your efforts. In 3 weeks, add another minute. Then soon, you'll see that your mind no longer has resistance to the new habit you're creating. And then you can safely add 5 minutes and much more. Strangely, this technique works for people who have no time to do something. So they start with 30 seconds a day. In about a month, they are finding time to do more. In several months, they are practicing an hour a day. Fascinating. Got to work with your mind as well. Otherwise, it can be hard to change our habits.

Therefore, we've got to rely on more than our puny brain.

I find I'm not alone with all this -- and I don't just mean everyone on this forum.
I find the raw diet helps the spiritual awareness, so I'm suspecting that you're getting the inner guidance that will show you the way. It's good to be reminded to keep asking, keep listening and looking, and let Life help us along the way.
The answers you seek will come.

« on: July 14, 2013, 02:02:20 am »
That hormone sounds interesting -- I'll have to look it up. Never heard of it. Thanks.

I've read elsewhere and in this forum, I believe, that adding some salt / electrolytes is important when consuming water for absorption of the water. Like that Iranian doctor of the book Your Body's Many Cries For Water. I figure you must have tried that. But remember, in his book he's says it can take up to 6 months or more for the body to adapt to better hydration. Due to lack of water, he believes various non-essential systems shut down.  The body needs to be confident that the supply of water will be consistent before restoring all systems. At least, that's how I remember the explanation in the book.

Also,  like the 'calorie is a calorie' myth -- I believe water is not just water. I understand there is a big difference in the 'form' or 'structure' of the water. For instance, distilled water has a poor structure, and it seems many aware/ instinctual people find the distilled water unacceptable. Natural spring water has a specific structure that not only purifies and neutralizes toxic substances, but the structure allows the water to be easily absorbed and used by the cells. The structure comes from the natural vortex and movements of the water.

Here is a video link of a video where they added a structured water unit to a strawberry field. After only two days, the BRIX measurement of the fruit increased significantly. Other youtube videos demonstrate increasing BRIX from structured water with plants. And the sellers of these devices have testimonials from dairy farms that get increased milk production when the cows drink structured water.
video link:

And then we know that fats are important for hydration:  (quote from Dr. Thomas Cowan's website)

Some might say drink more water. But ingested water doesn’t reach capillaries, at least not very effectively. What does cause efficient water production at the capillary level? Metabolism, and according to biochemistry texts:

* consumption of 10 grams of protein releases 4 grams of water
* consumption of 10 grams of carbohydrates releases 6 grams of water
* consumption of 10 grams of fat releases 10 grams of water.

This release of water comes only when sufficient oxygen is present in the blood., and moderate, regular exercise is the most effective way to release more oxygen into the blood.

Sufficient oxygen plus a metabolism in which cells live predominately on fats results in the most efficient pump, the healthiest circulation, and a healthier heart. Thus the strategy with any “dis-ease” of the heart is to slowly increase the percentage of healthy fats in your diet while at the same time increasing the amount of moderate exercise you do.

Best wishes on your road to better hydration. It's a good topic.

Just a thought . .

You've read Weston Price, but where are the organ meats? Just a little dig. Most people don't like them, but agree they are crucial for nutrient dense diet. Also, I was surprised to learn that fruits and nuts are not the end--all, be-all that the vegetarian-minded would have us believe. Yet they are tasty!

Looks like you're doing well on your diet. Best of luck to you. Alot of folks on here are learning to follow their instincts. And develop those natural instincts to guide their food choice. I'm inspired by that.

I've learned alot reading through this forum. I bet, if you read around the forum, whatever your next step is will reveal itself. Thank you for continuing to share what you learn.

It's so frustrating to being 'doing everything right' and still have issues.
Honestly, the GAPS thing hasn't worked for me or a friend of mine either. The raw meat finally did -- hence, I'm here. Yet I believe the knowledge base of GAPS is basically sound for those with gut issues.

Wai Dieters / Re: Cutting out veggies for some time
« on: April 16, 2013, 10:45:29 pm »
You very well CAN get diarrhea from probiotics.
This was the case with my autistic nephew on the GAPS program.

It certainly can be frustrating when our guts don't cooperate with us! I wish you all the best in your journey to learn more about this.

From our experience with the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, if one's gut is leaky and unhealthy, probiotics need to be added very gradually to prevent reactions. And foods need to be very easy to digest (here's were some lightly cooked and pureed foods come in) in the beginning stages. Fruits and veges that feed the wrong bacteria will aggravate the conditions.

According to GAPS -- while raw animal products are most easy to digest --- the raw fruits and veges are more difficult. Better to juice or cook well. The fiber and starch feed the wrong bacteria which contribute to a leaky gut (and thus immune reactions). The so-called 'bad' bacteria (which should be balanced by the 'good' ones) release toxins that weaken the integrity of the gut wall. Other yeasts and fungus can actually drill holes through the gut lining. In the GAPS program, they are careful to select SCD compliant fruits and veges and cook them well in the beginning. I believ this kind of thing has been discussed before in this forum.
The gut needs lots of time to heal -- and it will.
I would encourage anyone seeking a thorough treatment of gut health to get Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride book. Her program is healing the gut in order to successfully cure autism and other learning/mental disorders. She is an advocate of raw meats and raw animal products --- but in the beginning stages of her program, the body may not tolerate raw.

On a further note:  Did anyone read Chris Kresser's recent blog on the book, An Epidemic of Absence?
 it's a more in-depth look at the role of parasites and bacteria in our health. AND it appears the leading edge research doesn't believe that probiotics actually re-populate the gut. Rather, . . .

"that it’s a lot more sophisticated and complex than that.  These bacteria that we’re consuming are modulating our immune system and creating changes in our gut that probably do influence the composition of the gut flora, but it’s not so much about just filling it back up as it is about the effects that these organisms have on everything from our immunity to our gut genome."

On the water thing --- I just purchase a water structuring unit for the whole house.

 I like the idea of it. I can't say I've noticed any health benefits since I didn't have any problems to start with. Supposedly it returns water to a natural, 'living' state as it would have been after tumbling over rocks in nature.
Here's a clip that that shows the energy:

I'm really interested in hearing more on your Vitamin K2 experiments.

I currently take a supplement to keep my teeth free of tartar (Thorne Lab's K2 (MK4) in the US) -- and it works extremely well. I eat the best eggs and cheese and organ meats I can find, yet without the supplement I cannot keep my teeth clean. I've just resolved myself to the supplement.

I admire your efforts to find the combination of real foods that provide your vitamin K2.

General Discussion / Re: RP food items that promote bone health?
« on: March 16, 2013, 04:31:35 am »
From my reading, Vitamin K2 is most important -- the weakest link -- in a mineral rich diet. Even though I eat the best eggs I can get, and lots of raw butter and as much kidney and liver as I can stand, I'm still not getting enough vitamin K2. I know because tarter builds up on my lower front teeth. However, if I supplement with 2 drops of Thorne's MK4, my teeth stay perfectly clean and I no longer need to spend money at the dentist for teeth cleaning. If calcification is building up on the teeth where it's not supposed to go, then I'm assuming it's not going into the bones like it should.

Also, don't miss out on these following factors:

Silica is what the body uses to turn magnesium and other minerals into the calcium in bones. If our animals sources are deficient, you may need to supplement with the herb, horsetail powder. NOTE: dietary calcium is not necessary for bones. This article is very interesting reading.

Collagen is also very important -- eat your gristle! For me, it's hard to eat that part of the animal like my ancestor's probably did, so I supplement with gelatin/hydrolsized collagen. Of course, our body makes collagen from the meat's amino acids, but I've found that the collagen I've been supplementing ( sorry to all the purests out there) has made a distinct difference in my joint flexibility. I'm now a believer. So I assume it would be helping the bone too.

Here's the bulletproof executive demonstrating extreme joint flexibility from, so he claims, eating alot of collagen.

Caution with vitamin D. Often the often publicized vitamin D deficiency so popular today is really just a symptom of magnesium deficiency. I've read where people who require high amounts of vitamin D supplement can dramatically lower their dosages when they improve their magnesium status. Magnesium is much more important than calcium for many reasons, including activiating the vitamin D used in the body. And -- it's one of those things deficient in our soil, and this deficient in land animals. I wish I ate more seafood, but it is the most expensive thing.

I do supplement with a few things because I cannot get the quality of food that my ancestors ate.

I read ( sorry, can't find link) somewhere from the leading osteoporosis researcher in the world, that ALL the current tests, including bone density tests, are not predictive for individuals. The so-called 'bone density' does not predict fractures, only broad risks applicable to large groups. In other words, some people with the worst bone scans have the strongest bones. What I am learning from all this is that bone strength is the most important thing -- and like some of the springy chicken bones we eat, a resilient, spring-like bone will be hard to break. That strength is not from something brittle and rigid, like calcium, but rather from the collagen matrix and other factors that are strong and bend a little.

In my mind, it comes down to just being really healthy. For instance, cortisol and stress responses will do more damage to one's bones than a poor diet. Such is my contribution. I hope it helps in your search.

Primal Diet / Re: No Water
« on: March 01, 2013, 11:31:32 pm »
Alive, I believe you're referring to the work of Timothy Noakes, especially his book "Waterlogged."

He noticed along time ago that the athletes who drank the least water were the best performers --- sounds like Aajonus again! See my post above about the metabolic sources of water from our foods.

Primal Diet / Re: Aajonus's germ theory
« on: February 27, 2013, 06:44:08 am »
I had a few more random thoughts for Galaxy on this topic.

1.  We went to see Dr. Mary Megson, who is/was among other things a researcher in Vitamin A. She told us that a vaccine for measles was unnecessary. She explained that measles is easily  prevented with vitamin A, that measles was a vitamin A deficiency. In third world countries where they cannot afford vaccines, they simply give the children a 200,000 IU dose of vitamin A each year to protect them from measles. Therefore, maybe this measles/virus thing is not what it appears.

2.  Also, I think of mosquitos. They don't bother me at all. Yet I can sit next to someone who will be eaten up by them. Why don't they like me? Could it be the same reason a syphilus bacteria didn't like a primal eater (from Aajonus story)? For most people, don't mosquitos seem contagious?

3.  Dogs. Raw fed dogs don't get fleas.  Is that just a stronger immune system? Or something else?

4.  Plants. The bugs only eat the unhealthy plants. The bugs -- instead of being the problem  -- are Nature's solution to a problem, the sick plants. I think that sounds similar to Aajonus' view of bacteria.

When I think about it, so-called 'problems' in every area of life are so often looking in the wrong place (It's her fault, etc.). That's why fleas, bugs, germs, or whatever symptom we have  --   just maybe  -- in my mind might not be the real problem. I don't remember exactly how Aajonus explains it, but his outlook seems to fit the facts I carry around in my head.

I don't know where the bacteria come from, but these days, I don't care either.

Now this may or may not be way off topic, but I'm  amazed at so many things that are considered normal. Or, in other words, have people looking in the wrong place. I'm sure much of this is the same for all of you. Since I've been eating so clean, I can go up to 4 or 5 days without a shower, that is, if body odor is a concern. I love that. Also, I don't fart. The bathroom never gets stinky. I don't get bad breath. I don't need teeth cleaning. Plaque and tartar don't build up (it takes a K2 supplement for that in my case). I don't even bother to brush my teeth everyday. All these things that others consider 'normal' are really not.

Is Aajonus right or wrong? I just don't care either way. Because it works. I don't get sick. I don't smell. Mosquitos don't bother me. Hey, life is great.

And this leads my mind to the GAPS/SCD guidelines. In essence, avoiding foods that feed the 'bad' bacteria. I do that also. I believe our gut microbes just aren't what they used to be. So, I think they need cultivating with much care. Mostly because of our toxic world, and even our best of foods is not what it used to be even 50 years ago. For instance, I learned from Dave Asprey about the super-molds we're created by spraying anti-fungals so indiscriminately. These are challenges our ancestors didn't have to deal with.

I'm not discouraging anyone from pursuing the facts on the germ idea. Rather, just commenting that the benefits are so good regardless of the reasons why. And I'm most pleased with the personal proof in my own life that far outshines anything some scientist may have to say.

Galaxy, I hope you keep digging for the truth. I hope you share what you find with us. I'm behind you all the way.

Primal Diet / Re: No Water
« on: February 26, 2013, 08:27:59 am »
I think this information from Dr. Thomas Cowan gives a little insight into AV's recommendation to limit water --- because if you eat right, you may not really need very much water. It seems our ancestors never walked around with a  water bottle all day. Apparently, the body makes water, and in that way pushes the blood through the body. It's water pressure, not the heart pumping.

The below is from "The Heart is Not A Pump. It Listens."

How to get that push? Some might say drink more water. But ingested water doesn’t reach capillaries, at least not very effectively. What does cause efficient water production at the capillary level? Metabolism, and according to biochemistry texts:

* consumption of 10 grams of protein releases 4 grams of water
* consumption of 10 grams of carbohydrates releases 6 grams of water
* consumption of 10 grams of fat releases 10 grams of water.

This release of water comes only when sufficient oxygen is present in the blood., and moderate, regular exercise is the most effective way to release more oxygen into the blood.

Sufficient oxygen plus a metabolism in which cells live predominately on fats results in the most efficient pump, the healthiest circulation, and a healthier heart. Thus the strategy with any “dis-ease” of the heart is to slowly increase the percentage of healthy fats in your diet while at the same time increasing the amount of moderate exercise you do.

I live near the Chesapeake Bay where we the the Virginia Marine Institute. Alot of the scientists come into my workplace and I was speaking with one of them about his experiments. He mentioned that all the fish in the Chesapeake Bay are sick to some degree. His experiments were to understand the toxicity that is causing it. He said ALL the fish. And he understood that it was the toxins in the water --  not germs  -- that was responsible. That conversation opened my mind to the belief that the food we're eating just isn't what it used to be. Even in the oceans ( I know, the Bay isn't the same as a deep ocean).
