Primal Diet / Re: Diet for severe pain not working?
« on: June 15, 2019, 08:23:16 pm »
Taking modern painkillers often results eventually in overdosing as the body gets used to them. Not recommended. I had a slow-acting food-intolerance towards  raw and pasteurised dairy  which led to much the same symptoms as you had, due to slowly-increasing inflammation all over my body. For example, I had a vaccination on my left shoulder so that, from puberty onwards, I was unable to sleep on my left side because of the pain. Given that food-intolerance/allergy towards raw dairy is the commonest issue in the RVAF diet community, it woul be wise to avoid it like the plague for quite some time, and forever, if your symptoms improve as a result. Also, ignore most of AV's recommendations re drinking raw veggie-juice etc. Guy-Claude-Burger's book  on Instinctotherapy/Instinctotherapie is much more in line with long-term RVAFers' experiences.

Other ideas re handling pain:-

1) Try near-infrared light therapy/red light therapy devices such as found on and Joov. They appear to be good against pain. The alpha-stim m device is also supposed to be good against pain, though I never used it for that purpose.

The, ah, distances involved are prohibitive, I'm afraid! Of course, an easy way to start would be to hang some raw meat out in my garden and then feast on the maggots that would result from all the flies laying eggs on it. Pet food stores might be an option. It's just that I still have a horror of eating raw insects.I'll have to start with just eating insect eggs first.

I  would STRONGLY advise you against this absurd so-called "detox" sugar+cheese  "detox". Neal's Yard in London does have some raw, unsalted cheese, (well , as of 2010) but a member of staff  did once go stupid on me and asked why on earth I would prefer raw, unsalted cheese.

It's a possibility, especially if one believes in the very likely scavenger theory of palaeo--HGs where they were supposed to scavenge and eat mainly  maggot-infested aged raw meat. The problem I have is that the current websites I have searched online re Europe have all offered only cooked insects at very high prices. I suppose I could try pet-food stores but I fear they too will offer only precooked versions thereof.

I tried wheatgrass juice in my raw vegan days, it tasted so disgusting, I never tried it again. As regards condiments, I often add some raw garlic cloves and raw basil leaves and raw eggs to my raw meats/raw organ-meats.  Sometimes I even add raw sage leaves or raw pepper instead when available. When I go hiking in the Vienna woods, I tend to stuff myself with wild garlic leaves as they are almost everywhere there. Ideally, I should greatly widen the variety of raw herbs that I normally eat, and likely not eat too much of them at a time with raw animal foods.

I personally do not have any issues with raw fruit, well, except for some raw tropical fruits like mangos, papayas and coconuts.  I do get some good effects initially with 100% raw animal foods, but effects turn very negative after  c. 3 weeks. My view is that a LC/VLC RPD diet was the norm for most RPDers, as, while food was often abundant in palaeo times, there were also times when raw animal foods were scarce due to issues like migrating herds etc., so that palaeo HGs had to turn to raw herbs. The other point is that medicine was minimal in those days so that palaeo HGs had to turn to raw herbs for medicinal purposes such as removing internal parasites, for example.

I really admire your effort to  be self-sustaining. The freshwater pond might be even more useful if you added the right reeds around the edge of the ponds in order to filter the water and some fish as well.

People may wonder why I might be in line with the Noble-Savage theory on this issue, but I value language and culture. For example, in a recent trip to County Donegal in Ireland, I failed to find any authentic Gaelic-language music/songs. Those only existed in July/August for the tourists. Basically, the English had wiped out the Irish language and culture, and the locals did not care.

Personally, I  always had digestion-issues when mixing raw animal food and cooked plant food. Much less so, admittedly, with cooked rice and raw meat/raw seafood, but still not 100%.


This may have a point as , while domesticated animals and humans tend to experience  health-problems mainly in the long-term from cooking, many wild animals can die very quickly from eating cooked/processed foods.

Raw Weston Price / Re: What About the Hunza
« on: June 04, 2019, 10:26:58 pm »
Basically, the Hunza were one of the tribes that Weston-Price investigated. I shouldn't really be angry at WP as the sort of dietary range he recommended was far  less unhealthy than modern cooked diets, and he did recommend eating some raw animal food as part of his diet. It is just that  WP believed in the Noble Savage theory which meant that he viewed HGs as being somehow morally etc. superior in every way, but, quite frankly,  they did not lead as natural a life, imo, as HGs did in palaeo times.

Spare me this Weston-Price nonsense. Evidence shows that modern HGs are nowhere near as powerful or healthy as palaeo-era types. *Topic moved to relevant WP forum.*
