For those interested in primal diet videos, here is my channel:

Aajonus wrote about Trichinosis being desirable to have as part of your gut flora. This idea is based off the research of Dr. Joel V. Weinstock, MD, Gastroenterologist.

When I returned to my laboratory (then at the University of Iowa in Iowa City), I told my colleagues about my theory. Some of them were intrigued and wanted to start experiments. Others thought I was joking.

We had access to parasitic worms — already a focus of our research — and to mouse models of inflammatory bowel disease. Sure enough, when we gave the mice enteric worms such as Heligmosomoides bakeri or Trichuris muris by feeding tube5, or schistosome eggs by injection6, the animals were protected from autoimmune disease.

To test the therapy in humans, we selected Trichuris suis, a whipworm that typically infects pigs but can survive for a few months in people. Evidence suggested that this was a safe choice — if swallowed, the worm remains in the gut and does not pass into the bloodstream, and pig farmers are commonly exposed to it without medical reports of associated illness.

We began with a dose of 2,500 eggs — one investigator in an earlier study had given themselves a similar dose to prove that this organism could colonize the human intestine, and reported no clinical symptoms7. We infected pigs with T. suis eggs, then isolated adult worms from the infected animals and cultured them in vitro. The worms survived long enough to produce eggs that could be harvested and cleaned for clinical use.

Our institutional review committee gave us permission to try a dose in one patient. It was not hard to find a volunteer; many patients with inflammatory disease do not do well on conventional therapy and readily seek alternative approaches. The first patient in the study had untreatable Crohn's disease, and he eagerly consumed the 2,500 nearly microscopic eggs, which we gave to him in a popular sports drink. We held our breaths.

After six weeks — the time it takes for T. suis eggs to mature into adult worms — he reported no adverse events and showed improvement in disease symptoms that lasted for several months. Three more patients with Crohn's and another three with ulcerative colitis all reported substantial improvements (or complete remission), with no side effects.

Eventually, we administered live eggs every two weeks for 24 weeks to 29 patients with Crohn's disease. By week 24, nearly 80% of them reported a decrease in symptoms, and 72% were in remission — more than one would expect from a placebo effect. None reported side effects8. In another trial of 54 patients with ulcerative colitis, about half of whom were given placebo, 43% of helminth-treated patients improved after 12 weeks, compared with only 17% of those given a placebo9.

Primal Diet / I want to share some AV writings

Here are writings and interviews of Aajonus. I believe the information AV had collected should be publicly accessible for those who want it. Eating as closely as AV recommends continues to bring me greater health.

ciervo-chaman : Thanks for posting. After 16 months following AV's diet as much as I can I feel amazing. Sometimes hard to obtain all the foods to do his remedies. But, the more of them I include the better I feel. I am glad to find others that have had positive experience with his diet. May I E-mail you? I would like to ask some things about the up-to-date aajonus info. I have trolled some of the newsletters and some of his interviews on wewant2live. But it sounds like you have more than I and I would like to ask you some things.

I think with dairy people would have less trouble if they did 2 things aajonus recommends with milk
1) Let it sour for 5-6 hours at room temperature
2) Make sure it is not cold when you drink

If I drink milk straight from a goat warm and not let it sour I still get allergic reaction. If I drink it cold I get a horrible allergic reaction. With cream and butter I have found non-organic will give me problems. With eggs even organic ones if the chickens are fed a generic 'organic feed' I have had problems with those as well. The only honey that agrees with me is honeycomb. I have never found a good extracted honey.

daiorpl, regular no-salt raw cheese made from curdled milk doesn't satisfy you? I usually eat 1-2 cups of this cheese/week. I find it very satisfying. I found the same thing. Cheese recipes have too many questionable ingredients, including salt. AV is against even natural rennet from an animal(said this in his workshop). He only deals with the naturally occurring ferments of foods.

Just make it. Let raw milk curdle and then strain and you have raw no-salt added cheese.

I have read a little so far. So GCB promotes 100% raw asides from milk and eats one food at a time. He seems to promote fruit a lot more than AV does, yes? I remember reading from AV's book that if you eat too much fruit you won't heal among other problems with too much fruit. Is he pro-eggs? For wild edibles he says you can just taste test and if you like it eat it, even with mushrooms. Has anyone done this? I confess I've done this with unidentified berries, never mushrooms though.

Yikes hah.

AV promoted a very artificial modern diet which appealed to people who did not want to eat raw meats to any real extent. So raw, dairy, raw veggie-juice, raw coconut cream, raw honey and raw, ground nuts were promoted endlessly as THE main components of the Primal Diet solely because they were easiest, re taste, for former cooked-foodists to try out, and, needless to say, many people suffered thereby from nutritional imbalances etc. . Also, AV's constant insistence that it was impossible to be allergic to raw dairy grated on people like me. I was fooled for a time with his detox explanations etc., but, in the end, realised AV was dead wrong on this.

Another point AV forgot was that many illnesses cause or aggravate allergies so that promoting raw foods that are often allergenic to ill people is a really bad idea.

Wouldn't we need an altered diet to adjust to all the crap we have been put our bodies through? If we tried to eat what we did when we were wild animals now I bet we wouldn't get enough fat. How much fat could we really get off a truly wild animal? Would it be able to satiate you? And would it heal very sick people as well. AV's patients had a very good survival rate to cancer if the claims are true. I've tried doing raw without dairy and eggs. Eating the fattest cuts available(albeit I did not know butchers so only got the traditional cuts) I still felt STARVING which led to junk-food binges. How can you get healthier if you cannot follow a diet simply because your body is starving? I don't think it is fair to many people that may read this forum and believe AV's approach is not worth trying. I do fine with raw eggs. I do fine with raw goats milk(so far anyways). Same goes for unheated honey and celery juice. If you do not eat these foods your left with Meats and Fruits/Veggies. Which is fine if that works for you. I personally don't think I could satiate myself without eggs at least.

Don't get me wrong. I wish AV put more emphasis on other topics such as earthing, emfs, exercise, wild vs domesticated etc. His books are very partial. He doesn't substantiate any of his claims. He didn't properly record any of his research. But I believe he has a very good baseline of information based on observations of a lifetime that no one else really has. I'll do some research to the guy you mentioned. GCB I think. Does he have books?

Raw chicken do have chance, though small, to pass thread worm (or kind of , not exactly sure the name) to human, This worm only affect digest system, normally not cause big problem, can be easily treated by medication. However, certain parasites in pig (not the one your link mentioned) can cause serious problem on human being.

I would just forget the 'parasite' hype. They aren't studied properly so we can't actually take any mainstream information on it. I side with AV on his stance that all parasites are beneficial. Certain organisms will cause reactions within our bodies. We can't really categorize them as 'parasites' until they are studied properly. I do not know what AV studied. He does state how our bodies use salmonella and E coli in his newsletters(which I do not recommend subscribing to). He has also infected himself with tapeworms to intentionally detox. He also states vomiting or diarrhea is a result of your body quickly releasing toxins expelled into your stomach. I had diarrhea for a week when I started eating raw eggs. I continued to eat and I have been eating 12-24 eggs a day for the last 4 months without the smallest reaction to them.

Ioaonna: The chronic fatigue that had I wrote about earlier is for the most part gone. I discovered on a week long hiking & camping trip that my body can and will produce tons of energy if I get the right stimulus. On this trip I would jump in a natural body of water every day. I also drank from nothing but streams and springs that entire trip. And being out in the fresh air and sunshine does a lot of good of course. At the end of the trip we were doing 5 1/2 hour day hikes(in some of the most awesome places I've ever experienced). No fatigue. I felt for once in my life that I was fighting with my body instead of against it. I discovered the book 'Earthing' and had a few 'a-ha' moments when I read it. The dunks in lakes I was doing for Wim Hof training are actually 'super-earthing'. This is an aspect of physiology. I started intentionally earthing as a result of reading the book 'Earthing'. It really does keep the fatigue away for me. It's one of those things you just have to try it before you knock it.  When I started this thread I realized I had stopped dunking for a week. So I've started again(despite the weather) and my mood is already much better. Thanks for the inquisitive feedback guys it has made it more clear on what I should do simply writing this. There is still something that really bothers me though: I have been unable to attain the level of well-being I experienced during my trip regardless of what I do in the city. I was incredibly happy. My endurance was literally insane. I was playing hour and a half soccer games sprinting the entire game. My mental acuity had greatly improved. An example being that I have stuttered since I was 5. The stutter was 95% gone. Not only that, I felt I could properly form sentences and thoughts and convey them to others much better(something I struggle with ) My motivation was at a level where I was planning the future and things were looking good. I lost all these benefits within two weeks of being home(and working). It sucks because I can't pinpoint what are the worst health offenders of this city life. Not earthing was a big one. 40 hours a week of dusty construction air and bad lighting might be bad. Don't believe it's the worst thing though. I think I may have to get away from EMF's. A move might be in order as GS said. It's been something I've been mulling over recently anyways. Just frustrating knowing how I should feel under the right conditions.

I would very much recommend his second book. I don't understand why people knock him here. He has observed and documented the effects of raw foods on more people than anyone else(that I know). I have personally found his knowledge to be accurate. I think some people react adversely to dairy & eggs. Which is a big part of his diet. So they don't find his information useful. For raw milk he says to let it come to room temperature first before drinking. Cold milk can cause allergic reactions(something about the milk proteins making into the bloodstream undigested consequently). If theres still reaction he says to make kefir and add raw honey to help digest. For raw eggs some people just adverse reactions. Aajonus claims reactions may just be a detox. Bloating from milk may just be your body using the extra minerals to get rid of toxins in gut. He claims diarrhea/vomiting are always detoxes. People may heve true allergies too. I'd be curious to hear why many people here don't find his information helpful.

I ate nothing but chicken(mostly thighs) for 3-4 months. They are very tasty. Make sure you get them from a good source. And I would never eat frozen.

Great advice guys, much appreciated.

nummi: I do have WiFi. Also have the cordless phones. Could easily change the phones. For the WiFi I would have to hardwire some Coax downstairs to appease my brother if I want to change it. I have been suspecting electrical pollution as a potential problem for me at this house. People in my family laughed in my face when I suggested it. Kind of discouraged me to be proactive about it.

Tyler: how long did you have to do NP3 to notice benefits? What are you typically listening to?

Ionna: Hmm I usually am able to get a full 8 hours of sleep between 930 PM and 0530. Adequate sunlight? Doubtful. I am currently doing the electrical for a parkade. Lately it is normal to not see the sun until end of day at 315 PM. I was doing the Wim-Hof cold training and breathing exercises. Lately I haven't had the motivation to. I like doing meditation & yoga on a sunny day on the grass. Getting too cold now for that and I don't enjoy doing it at home. Don't really have the energy for HIIT right now. But I definitely get it twice a week on soccer practice & games. I like to think I eat very well. I eat raw beef or bison 3-4x a day(sometimes raw chicken too). I eat a small portion of white rice mixed with avocado and beef most days. I make smoothies with 6 eggs, a banana and some avocado and drink that throughout the day. Usually have another serving of fruit at some point in day. Eat a little bit of bland fruit. Sometimes juice celery. And I recently sourced some raw goats milk so I drink 2.5 l of that a week now without adverse effects. I wish I could do more of the stuff AV recommends like frequently eat raw cheese. And have access to raw butter.
I have mixed feelings about the work I do. I like the actual work that I do. But I really do not like environment that the work takes place in. Commercial electrical construction is very drab. I don't have a good foundation of community and relationships.

goodsamaritan: Good idea :)  I have been mulling over the idea of moving to the countryside. I feel crazy good when I am out hiking/camping for a few days so maybe the countryside would do me good. Maybe find a farmer that would give me cheap rent if I give a helping hand in my spare time. Anyone have opinions about Vancouver Island? Planning to do a 1-2 month trip out there next spring.

sabertooth: I just don't understand why I have such a high tendency towards depression. This summer was going great. If I spend a lot of time outdoors I do not get symptoms of depression. Specifically, I found that if I take a dunk in a natural body of water once a day I feel a much greater sense of well-being. I would also do about an hour of earthing each day which also seems to have a tremendous effect on my mood. I also drink water straight from streams and springs which really boosts my energy. Problem is that I quickly start feeling down when I spend any length of time at my house, and I don't know why this is. I just do not feel good when I'm at home. So, with sub-freezing temperatures already here in Canada. I am finding myself in my house a lot more. and I am starting to down again.

TylerDurden: I usually eat a piece of high meat every morning.

nummi: Magnesium eh? that may be why I get a big boost from drinking from streams, the extra minerals, idk though. I usually eat atleast 1 avocado each day...

anyways going to soccer practice. I'm just frustrated. Why do I get depressed so easily?

General Discussion / Re: High Chicken
« on: October 26, 2015, 10:11:14 am »
Update: The reason the high meat tasted disgusting was because I was using Bernadin Mason Jars which have a metal lid with a coating. The humidity from the meat eats the coating and the lids rust. Even if the lids weren't visibly rusting the batch of high meat I made did not turn out and tasted toxic. I would NOT use mason jars with metal lids to make high meat.

I now use a jar that is 100% glass, lid and all, to make my high meat and it turns out much different.

Tips for depression anyone?

Primal Diet / AV diet
« on: July 11, 2015, 11:24:41 am »
Has anyone here tried the dietary guidelines laid out in AV's second book. Has anyone followed his daily protocol to gain weight? To anyone who has, how'd it go?

The diet he outlines is:
fruit - 5%(4-6 oz)
Meat - 25%-30%(1-3 pounds)
Fat(liberal amounts butter, plenty of eggs) - 25%(8-24 oz)
Veggie Juice (mostly celery) - 25-30%(2-6 cups)
milk - 10-20%(up to 2 quarts)

Wondering if it's worth the effort to get my hands on raw dairy in Canada x.x. I'd really like to gain some healthy fat on my body.

I can't get fresh wild mallard duck here in Alberta Canada. I understand chicken is not optimal but I don't have other options for white meat. Any specialty meats are frozen besides bison. I'll continue to look around though maybe I'll find something.

The fat is yellow. The meat is more pink than red.

But about the high meat. What does it usually smell like?

What is high chicken supposed to taste like? I've been eating small bites of two week old chicken thighs and the taste... It's not good. It taste a little toxic and smells that way too. It's been in a sealed mason jar in the refrigerator with plenty of air. I've been letting it air out every couple days. Also the chicken tastes great raw and fresh. I just expected high chicken to taste more cheesy.

Health / Fatigue
« on: April 12, 2015, 01:02:37 pm »
What foods do you guys recommend for helping fatigue? I just constantly feel tired.
For the last 16 days I have been strictly raw paleo. I have been eating:
Raw Ground Lamb
Raw Chicken Thighs
Some Beef
Some Vegetable juice every several days
Some raw vegetables like Tomato and cucumber.

It was very weird the first three-four days the fatigue was lifting and I started to feel better. Brain fog was getting better. Actually felt like talking to people(stuttering and social anxiety seem to get better sometimes). Went out for a run(and felt good afterwards). But for the following two weeks everything went back to my norms. Do an hour walk with my dog a day and for rest of the day I just lay on the couch playing on my phone and watching TV. I need help. I'm trying to emmulate what I was eating the first four days which was mostly Lamb and Chicken. Wasn't eating much eggs, fruit, honey, or tomatoes at first. But the fatigue is just constant like it usually is. I am running out of hope here I have constantly tried new things for my generally poor health for a long time and if a raw paleo diet does not work I know of nothing else I could try. Sometimes I wish I was just non-existant and it's sad because I want to enjoy life. I just can't and I am losing hope I'll ever find a way to.
