Hey everyone, I live in Southern California (city of diamond bar), and I am struggling to find a brand of olive oil that is actually olive oil, not rancid, and has all the health benefits. I currently purchase the Kirkland Olive Oil (Costcos brand). According to this olive oil study conducted by UCD, the Kirkland brand meets all the requirements for legit olive oil. But I am not sure if there are any other factors at play (i.e. if its a bullshit study). Also, I cannot find 100% pasture raised eggs. Almost all of the chickens that lay eggs are fed grains.

And perhaps it would be best to start with a small amount and only if you feel comfortable about it. Forcing yourself to do something you don't feel designed for might cause more stress than it's worth, which is particularly important for you given your cortisol test finding. Would you feel comfortable trying a small sample of sashimi or sushi in a restaurant?

PaleoPhil, re-reading the e-mail message you sent me, I am scared of my results now. My cortisol is way too high and same with other markers. I am going to stop worrying about the acne and try to fix my health

By the way, most people on this website know much more about diet than I do. When I say "I am not designed to eat raw meat" I do not mean to offend.. I said this statement because when I do attempt to eat raw meat, I end up throwing up. My raw meat is from a website called USWELLNESSMEATS and it is 100% grass fed and finished.

So I posted about my acne about a year ago. Although it is better, I still suffer from what I consider severe breakouts (that leave me with really bad discoloration). I had some test results done and I would like to post them here to see if anyone can decipher them. I tried the raw meat diet and I could not handle it. I feel as if I am not designed to eat such a diet.

Here are the results:

I was wondering what is the best place to purchase grass fed meat online.  I live in southern california

I typically order from USWELLNESSMEAT ( They claim their beef is 100% grass fed and grass finished. Are there superior beef and meat products out there other than grasslandbeef??

Also, I cannot seem to find a farm that sells 100% pasture raised eggs... all of them supplement the feed with some sort of grain.

I would appreciate the help

What is your reason for wanting to put anything on your skin?

My GF and I do a daily self massage prior to bath. (abhyanga) She uses coconut in the summer and almond otherwise. I use olive all year. Then I put some mixtures of oils in, appropo to our doshas. Done so for about 25 years.

Ghee or clarified butter is used in Ayurveda for skin issues of certain types. It is not paleo, as it is heated.

What type of skin issues?

So I want to purchase duck eggs mainly because one duck yolk has 2x more calories than egg yolk. Anyone know wherein southern California I can purchase these eggs? I live 25 minutes from Los Angeles in diamond bar

My experience too. Very sad.

To this day I have NEVER seen the yellow fat. Apparently "grass fed" also includes "grass fed and grain finished." Finishing matters.

exactly, so how am i supposed to know which is 100 % grass fed.. which is not. It is almost impossible to follow a healthy diet in todays day and age. To be honest, i have been so stressed about following diets (i have tried quite a few) that i have been breaking out a lot on my shoulders. Dont know what to do

Hello everyone, i have finally decided to go raw paleo. I have suffered from moderate acne on back/shoulders/face for 7 years and severe dermatitis for 2 years. I have scars from this skin affliction. The scars hurt. Hopefully i can put an end to this disease.

I am going to be ordering all my meats first thing in the morning (it is 2 in the morning atm). I will be ordering them from the following website:

I will also purchase some meat at a local farmers market on saturdays (Deydey best beef).

I hope this cures me of my skin problems so that i can maybe live a normal life. I know there are people who have diabetes, headaches, etc etc but i honestly think skin problems that are moderate to severe in nature are the worst. You look like a monster, and everyone treats you like one.

If you guys have any suggestions, i am all ears.

Wish me luck.

Hi tests. Acne is when the body can't release enough so it goes to the skin - the biggest eliminatory organ. 

I would personally would first simply choose your foods based upon your desires and what calls to you as long as it is raw. Let your body guide you to what is healing through your senses for you, because you are an individual. As long as what you are eating is raw you can't go too far off track. Then, over time, you will be able to figure out the details of what works for you the best and what makes you feel the best.

That's my two cents.

Also - don't forget sunshine, good water, happy thoughts etc. - all the other healing things in life.

After 7-8 months, i am now embarking on this journey (had some roadblocks). Well, my instincts tell me i should eat raw fruits, veggies, nuts (only macadamia nuts since they have healthy monounsat fat) olive oil, coconut oil, and raw meat (no idea which ones). I tried some raw beef today and threw up.

So i have seen wai diet website, and some people were cured of their acne via wai diet. Would it also work for dermatitis?

I mean i guess i can eventually start eating raw meat (i ate some tonight, almost threw up), especially if i am allowed to eat tons of fruits and some veggies.

I think rawness is more important when it comes to fatty meats than many other foods, and I think that's something we agree on, so rawness might be especially important to an animal that is biologically adapted to a mostly meat diet, such as cats and dogs. Plus, by feeding them raw it eliminates the biologically inappropriate foods from their diet like grains and other foods that require heating and processing. Thus, raw diets also contain a substantial component of Paleo that many rawists overlook when they attribute most or all of their healing to rawness rather than Paleo (biologically appropriate foods). There's also so much overlap that it's difficult to completely separate the two, and thus the arguments will likely be endless, but I've seen firsthand some remarkable success stories from cooked Paleo and read about countless others.
Yeah, a lot of people are put off by the idea of raw Paleo. Cooked Paleo is less offputting to most people I've encountered, and from there they can bridge to less damaging forms of cooking, then introduce some raw animal foods and then maybe finally try fully or high raw Paleo some day. I have gradually seen more of the cooked Paleos considering these things and I think we will see more of them try out these steps over time.

So are you interested in seeing the reports re: Grave's disease from Wolf's site, Adora?

is grilling a safe form of cooking?

Hi Phil and Tyler,

I think we all can agree, that IF every person could have access to the best healer, the best chef, the best resources, and not have any yucky inhibitions..

Raw Paleo Diets will always win out.

Where Cooked Paleo diets is a transition thing or for those who cannot get over the hump of yucky attitudes to raw meats.

Where temporary Raw Veganism may be used for detox.

It all works out in the hands of skilled healers and skilled healers will use whatever works at what point in time.  I'm probably speaking for myself and my friend Vander. 

Yes, there are times when rawish / cookish paleo diet will already give benefits and healing.

Yes, there are times when absolutely raw paleo diet is needed.

I think Tyler is speaking from his experience that he gets tummy aches from cooked meat.  Yes, I get that too if I eat too much cooked meat.  Even my own children know and have experienced raw paleo is just the thing that does the job when cooked paleo cannot.

I think if sick people had access to perfect information... or as much information and experience as we have... we can draw them a map of how these various diets work... us being experienced poly-dieters.... so with the map they know where things can lead to.

Maybe we can start drawing our EXPERIENCED mental maps on how these diets work out.

Rawsamaritan, i would like to ask why raw paleo cured your eczema, but cooked paleo did not? What is the scientific reasoning behind it?

Has anyone on this forum (or are there reports) of people treating acne and Seborrheic dermatitis with cooked paleo? I know people have treated acne with cooked paleo (insulin responses, gluten sensitivity)

Pigs don't have a natural diet of grass the way that beef, bison, etc., do.

While on the subject, poultry do not eat a diet that is primarily grass or grain. They eat bugs. Some sellers use the terms "organic" and "pasture-raised" to make it sound like the livestock is being fed correctly for its species. For example, "pastured" beef can mean that the pasture has been strewn with grain-fodder and potatoes... so the animal is not eating much grass. You get to decide how picky you need to be.
What should i be looking for when purchasing pork then?

i get what you are saying.

So if it is grass-fed beef (100%) i am assuming that the cows only ate grass and there natural feed? Or are they sometimes grain finished?

I can purchase pasture raised chickens though. The hard part is finding ones full of fat AND pasture raised

We find that variety is a very good idea. You'll grow tired of the same old, same old.

Initially we tried ground beef and pork, but the ground part went out of favour.  ;D

was the ground pork grass fed? or just natural without antibiotics? I cant seem to find grass fed pork

That's a great source. There's also a few other online sites that are good too.

But it's best to get it locally so you can save on shipping, and also since online you'll get frozen meats. It's best to get them unfrozen/fresh.

So, what meats are you considering getting?

to be honest, i have no idea which meats i should be getting.

Like i said, i am mainly going raw paleo to treat my acne/dermatitis. I can get grass fed beef from a farmers market, other cuts of beef as well (which is grass fed).

So far, this is what i can easily and readily obtain:

1) grass fed ground beef (its probably pretty lean though, unfortunately)
2) polish sausage (but it may have some spices added). Also grass fed.
3) grass fed carne asada
4) grass fed chuck eye steak
5) grass fed filet mignon
6)grass fed flank steak
7)grass fed london broil steak
8)All beef sausage
9)pasture raised organic chicken backs
10)pasture raised chicken breast
11)pasture raised organic chicken liver
12)pasture raised organic chicken whole

Which are the best options to choose from? Also, from an acne/dermatitis standpoint, from my understanding, modern foods cause these issues (and my leaky gut which is a result of taking antibiotics for 4-5 months). So in essence, shouldnt stopping eating modern junk heal these conditions? Or is it mainly the fat from animal proteins that would heal it.

Health / raw meats

So i am planning on starting a raw meat diet, with fruits and veggies (and fats such as coconut oil/olive oil).

My main question is, what are the optimal meats that i should be eating to treat my skin condition (acne/seborrheic dermatitis which may be psoriasis as well)?

I can readily obtain grass fed ground beef (not sure of the fat content), pasture raised eggs (vital farms eggs), extra virgin coconut oil AND olive oil (Cold pressed for olive oil),

I realize that the best meats are the ones with the fattiest fat on it. I have no idea where to begin.

P.S., i also can get a rack of lamb from sams club (Costs 22 dollars). Also wild caught salmon. Would these help in my healing?

Please help me guys. I am very confused
