Raw Weston Price / Re: For Perfect Health.

Thank you for the update @IonSurfer. Do you ever drink green juices? Just wondering about how Aajonus used to say that it was necessary to drink green juices to offset acidity.

I'm also curious - do you eat high meat? Or rotten meat?

Welcoming Committee / Re: New to community, Have some questions

Hi consoomer.

Regarding the concern for parasites, you are probably correct.  There are some parasites whose effect is unnoticeable; and some are actually beneficial for certain illnesses (helminth therapy).  I think what gets lost in the whole "parasites are bad" discussion is that, even if they are bad, the benefits from eating raw meat at times outweighs the risk of getting parasites.  If the raw meat heals your body and is the best for you, then the concern about parasites is not that big of a deal.  If you get them, then yes you can get medication to get rid of them.  That being said, the one thing I would be afraid to eat raw is pork...for the reason that their parasites do not always stay in the gut (they can travel to other organs, like the brain).  However, some do choose to eat pork raw.  This is simply my choice not to eat it. 

I'm not sure about wild game.  I don't eat it because it's not available to me.  But I once was studying for a course to get a hunting license.  The hunters have to learn about the diseases wild animals may have, so that they don't consume the sick ones and then become sick themselves.  Part of the reason hunters cannot sell their catch to someone else is that the wild animals aren't raised under controlled conditions, so no one can ensure that they are completely healthy for consumption.  It is kind of a risk, but I think there are probably other members here who have eaten or regularly eat wild game meat raw with no bad effects. 

I don't know anything about raw oysters, lol.

Nevermind the rant from political atheist....lol

Off Topic / Zephyr

Just curious if anyone knows what happened to Zephyr, one of the raw dieters that did instinctive eating and got really sick? I know he recovered. Just curious if he is still doing raw all these years later. Aajinus did an interview discussing him but I can't find it right now.

The system is already collapsing (in the US).

We've been primed to remain helpless and dependent by learning useless things from age 3 to age 25 in "schools" that "help" us acclimate to the world.

The other day I read an article about the top items that will increase in price in the grocery store in 2022.  Those items were:  beef, chicken, eggs, vegetables.

What is left to eat?  Tree bark?  Grass?

If we were self-sufficient and raising our own food, we would not even need a "supply chain".  We would already be supplying ourselves!

Modern civilization simply trains us to be good slaves for employers so that we are dependent on earning tokens to purchase what we should already know how to freely obtain for ourselves.  Backwards. 

If I were to be have kids, they would only be homeschooled and no college whatsoever.

We're the real woke ones.

If I didn't have family in Pennsylvania I would move to NH.  Their state rep Mike Sylvia is proposing succession from the Union due to it's tyrannical behavior.  I no longer salute the federal flag either. It means tyrrany, imperialism, and corporate feudalism over Americans.

That video is not of MilkJar.  That is an imposter.  You can clearly see the differences between this imposter and the real MilkJar if you watch the Ukraine meeting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5FO6BJx4lA 

The imposter has a broader face and different voice. Totally different. 

On multiple primal videos (including sv3rige) people have questioned what happened to Milkjar.  I don't know if it was a joke or true, but there was a rumor that he was killed fighting in the Ukraine.  Just from reading the comments in videos and the videos of Ludwig and the others, many of the group no longer want to be friends with sv3rige and there's been a "breakup" in that community.  Kind of sad, not sure why/who is responsible and I don't want to guess here and make false statements.  It's too bad people can't stick together in this.  There's so few who even attempt it and there's really no "community" to offer anyone support except here. Sorry for the long response.  I wish I knew what happened to many of the people who were part of the community as well.  Everyone seems to have fallen off the map (evehart, tyler durden) and it's disappointing me.

Thanks Mark & Saber for the encouragement.

Well, I thought I will post my results from the "dry-aging" here in my journal.  I tried some pieces of it today (it had been aging for about 4-5 days uncovered in the fridge and became hard and darker in color). It tasted like cardboard or nothing basically.  So, I am kind of disappointed.  I posted on another thread here about whether I had aged it correctly or not, so I guess I have to educate myself on how to do it properly.

If I would age it longer, I believe it would get even drier and chewier and have a bit more concentrated flavor, but not much.  And maybe it depends on which muscle part of the animal it comes from.  Before I put in the fridge, I had tried some of it raw and it tasted pretty bland to me.  That is a problem for me is that raw meat kind of tastes bland.  I want something stronger or more sour.  So, that's why I was trying to age it.

Well, I know she mentioned being a fan of Jack Kruse.  So I checked that forum and she is posting over there regularly and recently.

It is out of the plastic and sitting on a plate in the fridge; it's like 1 inch thick slices.  It's basically getting hard and dry.  I'll have to look into the post by Saber and the other links you mention.

I hope kelpguy is still here and can answer, or someone else with experience dry-aging.

I bought beef in the plastic wrap from the supermarket and I've been dry-aging it a couple days.  It has turned darker and tougher, like jerky, as kelpguy said.  I was hoping it would still be tender inside and have like a mold or other discoloration on the outside.  I feel like this is the kind of meat that I want (I don't want it fresh).  Is dry-aging the way to achieve what I want?  Or am I just going to be making raw beef jerky?

Well, today I am home instead of at work.  I woke up with a stuffy nose, and in the past I would normally just go to work and power through the day, as it otherwise doesn't affect me.  However, the fear level in my office is so high that it's actually a hostile environment, and if I would show up at work sounding "nasally" there would have been an uproar (even though they are all vaxxed they are still deathly afraid of the common cold). 

So, on the "eve" of New Years' Eve, I am sitting at home because of this nonsense.  I actually suspect that this head cold is the result of me having to work on shredding papers that are about 40 years old and sitting in a basement full of dust.  I take the old documents upstairs to shred, but there is still a plume of fine powder that comes when you empty the shredding bin.  And I do wear a mask while doing this, but who knows what chemicals were used in paper back in the 1980s and what the degredation of those chemicals can cause. I really think my symptoms are due to this shredding work that I have been doing for over a week, and not the virus.

Either the colleagues will be saying I'm lying to get off of work (which I never call off) or they'll think I'm at death's door from the flupocalypse virus. 

That is the kind of work environment I have to go to every day.  I wish I were a man so I could have been a bricklayer or something instead.  Office environments are so toxic and gossipy.

I guess I will try to do some work around the house and reading today. 

I have been really not on the primal diet at all lately.  The raw meat hasn't been appealing to me.  Recently I've felt/intuited that I might like it more if it were aged.  So, last night I left out two slices of top round in the fridge.  I intend to age them for about a week or so, following some of the instructions on older discussions on this forum.  I have a feeling I will like the taste once it's aged/fermented.

Sv3rige just did a video that he leaves his high meat unaired for about three months.  I was wondering what people here would think of that, especially regarding potential botulism.

Sabertooth, I hope you don't mind me asking, but when you talk about higher powers protecting you, would you tell me who/what you are referring to? 

I have been "seeking" (both formally and informally) but I feel so separated from whatever forces/gods there are in the universe. 

I understand if you don't want to answer.

Well I haven't been here in sometime.

I've been really stressed the past two months because of work.  As of yet, there has been no "workplace mandate."  We are able to avoid the federal mandate because we don't meet the criteria.  However, there is a sh*t-stirrer in the office who is making it her personal business to involve some government authorities to try to force everyone who is unvaccinated to get it.  This woman is a trouble-maker but has some support in her opinion of forced vaccination, so I don't know what will happen.  I call her and the others "the Coalition".  However, I don't know how she would be able to *prove* that anyone is unvaccinated without having access to their medical records *and* having signed HIPAA release from that person in order to give that information to some other authority.  SO, given those roadblocks, I believe those of us who believe in freedom at the office are still safe.  But it's still a really hostile environment with constant whispering and gossiping.  Every day.  It's like living in hell.  I only stay at the job because it pays the bills (pays well) and helps me support my family.  I'm trying to find something else that doesn't require the jab.

In addition to this, I've had some really bad luck over the past two months.  Personal things have happened that I don't want to say. 

It would mean so much to just have one person (in person, not online) who felt the same as me that I could talk to.  I did find a group of people near me who believe in medical freedom and I went to their recent meeting.  So, that is one good thing.  The stories of persecution there were awful.  Discrimination is alive and well.  One woman was bullied out of her workplace after her coworkers harassed her extensively after learning she was unvaccinated.  Another woman was forced to give birth wearing a face mask in the hospital.  Now the hospitals near me are all requiring visitors to be vaccinated.  So if my elderly parents get hospitalized, I am discriminated against and not allowed to visit, even though the vaccinated can still spread the disease themselves.  Even landlords are requiring it in some places.  So, the unvaccinated do not even have the right to live!

I am losing hope.  I really do not want to be part of society anymore.  I only stay part of it for my elderly parents.  Otherwise, I would sell everything, buy a van, and live in it. 
 
I feel most sad for Australians; I saw on the news they are requiring the unvaccinated to live in concentration camps like in Nazi Germany.  Even one of their congressmen is in the concentration camp!  The mainstream Australians have drank the Kool-Aid.  I think most Americans (including myself) have always seen Australians as the most rugged, self-reliant individualists in all of Western civilization.  It is so, so sad to see that whole country give up their right to their own body and violently (yes, abusively and violently) suppress all opposition.

@kingsalmon We realize all those things and are still concerned. Tyler posted here very frequently, so for him to suddenly drop off the map is unusual behavior and concerning. Yes, in your case you don't post frequently and don't consider us your friends, so if you left it would not set off alarms or concern here.

It's my goal to be financially self-sufficient without the traditional "9-5" wage slave employment. 

It feels like I'm slowly being killed in my work environment; it's not contributing to my health in any way.  The atmosphere, the people, how I deal with it (by binging), etc.

Are any of you self-employed?  If so, what do you do?

I know there is a cost for having the freedom of working less - I'm not materialistic and I don't value the "fine" things in life (can't enjoy it while my health is deteriorating anyway!), so it doesn't matter to me if I am not "successful" according to those standards in society.  I just want enough money to afford to pay my taxes and necessities and otherwise be left alone.

I've tried selling on ebay but I've actually never sold one thing! 

Any ideas are appreciated.

What I ate today... some raw beef (left over from yesterday), supermarket cooked shrimp (it was pink not gray like the uncooked kind, but still cold), raw bone marrow with raw honey, and, my cheats - DD frozen matcha latte and a kit kat bar.  I think the latte cravings are for the creamy dairy in them.  The raw marrow is really creamy when it gets room temperature.  It's so good.  But I still have a hard time eating adequate calories when eating raw meat.

I'm worried right now.  So worried about whether I will be forced to take the jabb in order to keep my job.  I guess I could decide to be fired from my job for not taking it and preserve my health, which is already bad to begin with.  I actually have a problem that is under control through medication but I haven't specifically mentioned it here.  People who are on this medication have children with birth defects if they take it during pregnancy.  But it keeps my condition under control, to the point that I don't even realize I have it most of the time.  Some people who have gone off the medication have had their condition return after one or two years, even worse than previously.  I am afraid of how the jabb will make me deteriorate, maybe make my condition worse than ever.  So scared.  But what are my choices?  If I am fired, then what will I do?  I can't get another job because then every employer is going to make the jabb a condition for employment, and most of the other jobs will pay less than the one that I have.  It would have to majorly overhaul my life in order to not be forced to have this against my will - become homeless or something.  I hate Byden.  He is a terrorist thug.  With his speech, he has basically said to all Americans, "It's your money or your life."  If we give up our life (take the jabb) then we can keep our money (job).  If we keep our life (not take jabb), then we must give him the money (give up our job). Just like a thug in a dark alley.  He is despicable.  It should never come to the point where some greedy idiot in DC makes a decision concerning my private health. 

I want to be free, live without so many possessions anymore so that I don't have to worry about "losing" things.  Just get rid of possessions because they hold you back.  The big one that ties everyone to their jobs in the US is the "health benefits" (as if anyone has actually benefited from them in the past 4 decades... we just get sicker and sicker here in the US).  If you have no insurance, you better own nothing at all because the "heroes" in the healthcare field must be paid greatly for their good deeds... it's not done out of the goodness of their hearts.

Poppy, I just thought of something else. 

If you want to do better than coffee, maybe drink bone broth or something?  I've seen flavored collagen protein powder.  I know that's not primal because it's a processed food, but I've thought of doing this myself.  I have unflavored collagen powder but I haven't gotten into making my own drinks yet.  Maybe its something about being in dark/cold climate that makes me crave hot liquids in winter; probably the same for you guys in the Pacific Northwest.  The ones that live in California or other hot climates/tropical areas won't understand.  I think those of us that live in regions where it's dark/cold/rainy for months (winter) should be sleeping a lot more than modern civilization allows us because we are on a "clock" which is totally different from what our bodies need us to do.  I think we should sleep much longer and not have to be up so early in the morning in winter...

Poppy, I drink coffee but it's a crutch.  Lattes are my addiction.  For me, I know it's bad but until I'm healed, I'm dependent on it for simply getting through the day sometimes.  Especially in winter in Pennsylvania when I wake up and it's so dark, I can barely move when I get up (really).

However, there is a guy who has been raw primal for years and he drinks turkish coffee.  His name is Boban and he is on youtube as "thefirstoneofmykind."  He used to be a wrestler and now he does security work, I think.  He has many videos of eating raw meat and high meat and he is really strong.  But he continues to like turkish coffee and I guess it doesn't cause him any ill effects.  Here is his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_pIjiXmJ4fyIBBk0Y6FY8w

You should download any videos of his that you like because he keeps getting censored.  He was kicked off of instagram and tiktok.

Hi sorgin. It sounds pretty complicated. I hope something works. I'm also concerned about parasites, especially since starting to eat ground beef. I feel safer if I eat the whole muscle meat. What do you think it was that gave you the parasites - were you also eating ground meat? I'm just curious. There are lots of things I'm trying to heal too

Thanks MarkR and everyone.  Dark-chocolate liver sounds good, lol.

Chicken update - I'm wanting to eat less chicken now.  I liked the taste before, but now what I like most is the raw chicken marrow and chicken blood inside the bones.  It has a spicy taste to it, like the spices I use.  So, I really want whatever has that taste to it.

I think I am going through a detox, as they say here, because today I don't feel so great.  But, when I try to eat 100% raw, I eat a lot less and I think I'm not getting enough calories. 

Today I ate some ground beef (grass fed) from the butcher.  But it was previously frozen.  It has more of the spice taste to it than the chicken, but a lot of red meat still has a kind of anemic taste and is not really bloody enough.

Hot Topics / Natsinagfa thread

I know this is a political thread and should probably go in the "politics" subforum, but it's kind of a hot topic and Tyler isn't here anymore in order to moderate the political subforum anyway.

The first word is purposely spelled backwards.  I'm trying to avoid the webcrawlers, so try not to say the A word.  These are just my thoughts/feelings on it.

The migrants are going to be resettled near me, in NJ and Philly.  A guy at work has been called to duty for 30 days to help re-settle the migrants in NJ.  No news coverage of this, of course.  Keep the Americans in the dark, as usual.  I have read in the local news the migrants are going to be offered the jab but it isn't mandatory... meanwhile, the US military is mandated to take it as well as many guv employees and private businesses are mandating it.  That just rubs me the wrong way that they are given choices and better treatment than Americans already here/born here.  We cannot refuse unless we want to lose jobs, etc., but for them we must roll out the red carpet and bend over backwards...sorry, but I don't believe in anyone getting special treatment.  We are supposed to be equal.

I read that France will not be taking them into their country.  A lot of the European countries are still dealing with the massive influx of migrants from Syria that happened some years ago.  And I remember much of Europe was against this fight to begin with, when it started all those years ago.  I can't blame Europeans for disliking Americans... now they are being put in the middle of this.  I just feel like we are at a point where the only good thing we can do as a country is to become isolationist, to remove our involvement from the world and really focus on our own problems at home.  If we try to do good, we only wind up making things worse and having more countries hate us/dislike us.  So, better to not be involved anymore.  Stop fighting wars out of vengeance/revenge and only when it is for our actual defense.  I believe more and more the turning point that started it all was an engineered disaster to hasten the dominance of the NWO over all mankind and it's still continuing under the latest engineered disaster...

So an update on the chicken livers.  This time I got Bell & Evans Air-Chilled chicken livers from a local supermarket.  They are fed grain but no antibiotics.  Well, they are great.  I can't eat a whole lot of them at once, but the taste is just on the other side of mild.  It's the first liver that I actually want to eat it raw and I don't gag or grimace!  You can tell the difference between these livers and the others that I got.  These chicken livers are a dark red color and the others that tasted so bitter were pale and pink-yellow looking.  So, if you see Bell & Evans chicken livers, don't be afraid to buy and eat them.  They are good!  I wish all the meat could be this good quality.

Hopefully I can find beef liver that tastes this good one day.  I always find beef liver extremely bitter, and I've even drove over a half-hour to a farm to get grass-fed organic beef liver.  One thing I find odd about grass-fed beef liver is that, in addition to the bitterness, it has a "medicinal" taste to it, if that makes sense (the ones I've tasted anyway)...not pleasant.

I'm still finding it hard to eat 100% raw because of the social difficulty.  I have to eat alone and hide my meals.  But I know it's also an excuse that I use in order to not change, because change is both painful and exciting at once.  When one thing changes, everything must change... I really believe that is true.  If you are unhealthy and you become healthy, all the energy in your life must change because you are essentially a "new" person.  This unspoken energy is everywhere; people pick up on each other's moods all the time and it affects everything (at least for me, maybe that is why I eat bad food a lot in order to numb myself to not pick up on things).  So, if you have an energy mis-match to your environment after you heal yourself, you can't stay in that same environment.  The energy has to match, just like heat transference in physics. I know maybe this sounds weird/absurd to people, but I know it is true.  So, if I don't match my environment anymore, then what will I do?  Must leave the things that make life secure; this is the reason underneath, I think.
