Hot Topics / Re: Why are people bashing Raw Paleo?
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:28:18 am »

Aside from the irrational ignoramuses who bash raw paleo just because it's different; here's a good, brief introductory article as to why people might reasonably 'bash' raw paleo. References are cited, and you can use it as a starting point to do more research, if you want.

Yeah it's ok to drink. It's wrong people who say 'it can't go bad' though. It can go bad. If you get something growing in it that looks separate from the milk, like a brown scum, then it's gone bad. However, if raw milk is just aged and goes sour there's nothing wrong with that.

What is quark and how does one make it?

And I don't know if I can digest high meat. I've not been able to digest any of my attempts at high meat, but I don't know about good high meat. Stuff in my house tends to go off badly, not nicely.

Ok, so I can digest sour raw milk. I got some kefir grains but whilst I was waiting the milk went sour by itself, and I could digest that, ofc the kefir grains give more control over it and probably make it even more sour.

I felt better in many ways eating just raw animal foods than I do now, before I got the problem, whatever it is. However there are also some ways in which I feel better now. I feel that if I'd just eaten how I do now in the beginning(by which I mean the time I started eating RAF - if I'd ate how I do from the beginning of my life, I think I'm sure I'd be super-healthy), that I might feel equal to or better than I did eating just RAF, but I'm not sure. Back when I first started eating RAF I did not have the money to experiment with food, as I was at school and my parents only gave me at the very most £2/day for all my food.

I was just wanting to share my experience really, but then thought I might as well ask for opinions whilst I was at it. I do not expect anyone to know what the problem is, and I tried all the things I've seen people suggesting before I tried cooking.

Once I added fruit/veg, I got the problem, and it stayed. Of course I tried going back to just eating meat, but it didn't work. once I had the problem it would not go. I still have the problem, but eating cooked foods I do not have the symptoms - only if I eat raw foods again. I'm fine with foods people here say are hard to digest like nuts, sourdough grains, pasteurised milk and cooked beef - but if I eat some raw meat or raw milk I have the problem..

The problem(from eating raw meat/milk) is not bloating, gas or pain... It's just.. nothing. it's like everything just stops, and the discomfort, the sick feeling just builds but nothing happens... There is no gas, no pain as such, I do not vomit, nothing really.. If I try and wait it just gets so bad. I have to eat lots of food to make it push out as liquidy stool(undigested), but doing this, because the food is stuck behind the raw meat or milk, it ferments and gives the 'candida' issue.. I tried all different raw things, probiotics, rotten meats, fermented vegetables etc, nothing changed the problem. After time the candida type problems from the stagnant digestion got worse, to the point I started to get some eczema, so I just started cooking everything and the symptoms went, though the problem is still there if I try to eat raw milk or meat again.

It's not a problem with the food but with me, I've always had some problem, I just have to eat what works best for me.

How do you ferment it? Do you add vinegar or something to help it ferment correctly?

Seems like an enzyme issue, that I don't produce enough enzymes to digest raw food now or something, or just not the right enzymes *shrug*.

Interestingly, whatever it is that prevents me from processing raw meat, also prevents me from processing raw milk... I get EXACTLY the same problem after drinking raw milk as from raw meat... Whatever is causing this problem only started ~7months in to eating a raw diet... For the first 6months I ate only raw meat/fat/organs, then I started eating fruit and vegetables etc too, and then I developed this problem, and it has stuck with me since. It seems very odd...

I'll add, that I have had NO problem digesting pasteurized milk(I know because at the farm I was working on some people came to share my mobile home and left behind like 6 pints of pasteurised organic milk, which I drank to stop it from being wasted... and I have NO problem digesting cooked meat either...

Anyone have any idea what it could be really, considering what I've said? I was doing fine with what I was eating, all cooked paleo stuff, but then I fancied having milk for a week instead of meat to try it out, actually after fantasizing about being a herder or something, so I ordered unpasteurised organic milk figuring it would be the best to have... but then it clogged my digestion the same as raw meat does, I can't think why... EXACTLY the same way as raw meat... so a few hours after drinking me milk I just start to feel really bad like it's stuck there and I have to eat a load of vegetables to move it along...

I'm not drinking any more of this milk like that, the effects are too bad. I'm going to try actually pasteurising some of it myself to see what happens then, and also try making some cheese, yogurt etc with it see how that is..

It adds confirmation though to it being a relatively 'acute' problem with me and not raw meat, because whilst cooking meat has been popular for a LONG time amongst most humans, I think cooking of milk was very rare until recently for pasteurization...

Health / Re: Not washing
« on: December 31, 2011, 11:23:41 am »
I remember reading here about people in the past not washing because they 'thought it was bad' - this being a justification for not washing now. I thought people might like to know, that the reason they 'thought it was bad' was because it showed vanity, an expression of pride, which is a sin in Christianity; it also involves one getting naked an touching oneself, which were forbidden or frowned upon in Christianity. It was not for health reasons that they 'thought it was bad'.

The Christians reviled the Vikings for their vanity, because they washed fully once a week, kept long hair and looked after themselves, washing their faces every morning, combing their hair and washing their hands before and after eating. The Muslims on the other hand reviled the Vikings for their lack of hygiene - because vikings would bathe in still water, whilst Islam taught to wash only in running water.

Paper backed by precious metals is the only thing that is real. The current one leads to wars, and government encroachment on everything.

In the past governments were kept from going into needless wars by the reality of dough-ray-me. They had none to buy ships, guns and soldiers. But with your suggestion they just have to print more. Remember the Weimar Republic and the Continental.

Leaders within empires always encroached upon everything, and empires always made big invasions to get more money when their's started to run low. Doesn't mean it has to stay that way, but you will never find the solution when you ignore this fact. If Gold is the international currency, then whoever has the most gold-mines will have the most money. If a country has less gold-mines but the power to acquire more, then they will do so, the same as with oil now; and the same as with Rome and Gaul in the past, ETC..! Except that now, people might be able to find out how many resources a country had, and then they would call this 'USA Gold', 'China Gold' etc, and they would still be worth different amounts depending on what useful resources the country had.

As long as everyone can keep up with calculating the exchange rate between currencies and the actual value of a currency, I don't see why it would matter how much a currency is worth relative to the numbers. When people print more money without gaining resources they are just fiddling with the numbers to make it look like they have a different value of money than they really do, it doesn't change the value they really have. VALUE of money is still based upon resources like food, oil, and whatever else people need or want.

Changing the numbers is just to make people spend more, or to trick other countries into selling stuff to them for a lot less than the numbers suggest. This is a desperate attempt to try and kick-start the economy somehow, and take it out of decline, to try and delay people's perception of the decline long enough for something to change, or to do something about it, etc. The decline is a decline in value, due to a decline in resources available. If the decline continues the country must secure more resources, which adds value to their currency, BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY HAVE STUFF TO TRADE.

When another country accepts payment from the USA, they expect that they can use that money at a later date to purchase something of similar value, but at a time when they have more need of it. As long as the country accepting the payment is aware of the TRUE value of the dollar, and the actual resources USA has, it is no problem. Money is an 'owe me one' for resources. It's like if I pretended I had 1000 apples growing in my orchard but not ripe yet, so I asked you to lend me 100 apples, since you have 1000 already ripe apples, and I wrote you a piece of paper saying I owe you 100 apples, and really I only had 10 apples.

Modified: Ancel Keys data does show statistically significant positive correlation between animal fat consumption and heart disease; however from the same sources the data shows a statistically significant negative correlation between animal fat consumption and all other causes of death combined.

Oh, well I'm using ginger and garlic in my stews anyway. I love the ginger, it is indeed warming. I've used mint too though and I like that.The peppermint tea however I didn't even enjoy drinking.

Well I wasn't having any trouble at the time I took the tea, perhaps that's the difference.

The peppermint tea thing didn't seem to go too well... It just messed up my digestion and made my bowels liquidy - the very issue I overcame, and have not been affected by since I began cooking. Although there must be some issue, for my digestion to no longer be able to handle raw meat, I'm actually having no problem with my digestion since using cooking.

By the way... the thing I said about overcooking meat making my eyes tired... that actually only happened from boiling/steaming meat - I went a week with little meat and what I had was boiled so I forgot. Oven at 250C is fine, and in fact I prefer it cooked more than less when done in the oven.
