Eating high-meat made from raw, low quality meat should solve the antibiotics issues?

1) Cooking is not a solution, it just creates extra toxins and destroys bacteria and enzymes. Unlesss you have access to a machine-shredder like SB has it's a waste of time to deal with bones.

2) Could be detox? Then again, detox of this sort is less common in cooked diets as there are always toxins around in the body to deal with. Given past experiences of mine, it might be due to a mineral deficiency. In pre-raw days, I sometimes overdid the alcohol and got muscles in my legs seizing up, which seems to have been due to not enough intake of the right minerals. it could also be due to being 100% keto. Perhaps when switching to a RVAF diet, it might be an idea to also include raw veg and raw fruit in your diet.

3)There are always other options when faced with difficulty of access to high quality, affordable raw foods. One idea would be to carry on with Intermittent Fasting every 2nd day and continuing alternating. One does not need anywhere near as much  raw animal food per day as with cooked animal food due to raw foods having much higher nutrient-content generally, anyway. Plus, as I have found, the higher the quality of the raw animal food, the less one has to eat per day, unsurprisingly. Another option is to grow/raise your own food but, for that, you need your own backyard with some greenery. My own solution was to just keep looking around. My 1st available options were really bad:- 40 uk pounds sterling a kilo for organic 100% grassfed beef, and some truly disgusting very  intensively-farmed  meats and eggs. Then I found the LFM markets in London online and found some raw 100% grassfed ox liver which I got at first for free for some months before they insisted I pay 2 pounds sterling a kilo for the stuff given their efforts to give it to me instead of just as usual throwing it away. I also found that a lot of cheap raw wild game in vacuum-packed form was available(mainly raw wild mallard duck and raw wild hare). The wild hare was amazing , allowing me to drink 2  pints of raw, high quality blood from the wild animal, which was far more invigorating than any other kind of raw blood. I also went to local fishmongers, and, ,me being near the coast, I was able to buy raw cheap wildcaught seafood such as raw mackerel, which  was very tasty and nutritious. Just keep looking on- and off-line.

4) Animals in most countries, other than some tropical countries, are routinely given deworming  etc. medicines by farmers, even the organic ones, so it's a non-issue unless you live in Vietnam , Zimbabwe and the like. After 10 years of being rawpalaeo, I got an infestation of tapeworms, which was largely harmless other than the 1st 3 or 4 days when the parasites somehow managed to hurt my bladder whenever I urinated. After monitoring the experience for a couple of months, and not succeeding with herbal anti-parasite medicines, I got  a doctor to get me some anti-parasite drugs(praziquantel) and the problem was swiftly solved within 2 days. Fear of parasites/food-poisoning are so rare in RVAF circles , it's a non-issue. Oh, yes, I once or twice have eaten some dodgy raw produce(due to chemicals being present), but my body always reacted quickly with vomiting the stuff out soon after.

Other sources claim they have been on the islands for at least 60,000 years. I suspect a much larger time spent there given past Out of Africa hoaxes re dates always being pushed back, myself(100s of thousands of years ago at least, but anyway...). The article is a fascinating read.

A few people have regained their health after eating raw supermarket meat, but this is not common. Bear in mind that a lot of raw supermarket meat contains as much as a third or two-thirds of the amount of AGEs found in the boiled equivalent thereof.So, those who are already in extremely bad health due to eating cooked diets for years may often not benefit enough from raw supermarket meats. The first theme is the rawness of the food(along with enzymes), then the amount of bacteria(ie how aged it is), then how high-grade it is re nutrients(ie grassfed or wild) and, lastly, if it has preservatives with it or not. At any rate, I did try eating raw supermarket meat from a butcher specialising in very intensively-farmed supermarket-type meats prior to going rawpalaeo, and  these did nothing for me.

I see the creeping evil of hipster, vegan cafes appearing in my neighbourhood here in central Europe. Fortunately, the one on my street went out of business some time ago.....

I am not surprised that such a palaeoish tribe would want to avoid all social contact with modern peoples.....

Health / Re: Skin issues and not feeling well
« on: November 21, 2018, 05:14:13 pm »
I had really bad inflamed skin for years prior to going rawpalaeo. It  was caused by a very slow delayed-action allergy to  dairy(raw and pasteurised). I was unable to sleep on my left side as a result. Just switching to raw grassfed and wild meats as well as fruit and veg helped solve those problems within 4 months or so. On an overall health-related basis over the years, I found that eating some raw organ-meats helped speed up recovery as did eating "high-meat" and making sure that the raw meat was either grassfed  or wild.Raw organic fruit and veg did not have the same sort of quick effect so I only eat organic fruit/veg  c. a tenth of the time. I should also point out that I am one of many who cannot handle a 100% meat-based diet. I have done some experiments with a 100% raw-meat diet and ended up with all sorts of health-problems after only 3 weeks.

Everyone is different. I find I thrive best if I have raw seafood at at least 10% of my monthly diet, yet no more than c.75%.

Are you certain it was not an issue with a specific brand of distilled? I have been experimenting with a brand called Divinia which is double distilled, low in deuterium as ancient water would be, and it has other unique properties. In contradiction to your experience I have a hard time drinking it and find I drink less than normal, which is not much anyways 1-2 cups. Maybe my body is telling me to abstain if I fact it is leeching minerals.

You are lucky to have access to great local water! Thanks for your thoughts.
Admittedly, I had only tried one brand of distilled water. But I still think that the problem was the lack of minerals etc. in the water, as opposed to some particular brand. I also found that, after going rawpalaeo,  my appetite for raw foods(or any foods) sank to zero as long as I drank London tapwater, which is really foul. While the Alpine and Ligurian tapwater comes from the mountains, it is only c. PH value 7.2, and the spring water bottles in London which were 7.8 PH or more were preferred by me. I particularly enjoyed the taste of the Brecon Beacons spring water which had a PH value of 8.4. Sadly, spring water in Austria is kept at 7.2 at most, generally.

What kind of sprouts did you eat for 6 weeks?
A lot of watercress and some alfalfa. Those 2 are the only ones I recall(it was after all c.17 years ago). Probably other types of sprouts were also involved but those 2 were the most  favoured and the ones I remember.

*sigh* Perhaps I did not make myself clear re full details:- after 2-3 years of being raw vegan and then Fruitarian, I switched to becoming sproutarian for a couple of months(6 weeks min, anyway) just eating raw sprouts and water(spring water) and actually did slightly better than on the former raw vegan/fruitarian diets. Admittedly, in those days, I did not overeat raw sprouts per day like I did in later experiments.

It would be a nuisance to try but I could easily  handle eating just raw sprouts for 15 days or more. I  actually did so prior to experimenting with RVAF diets. Prior to being a sproutarian, I had been a raw vegan, then fruitarian, and they had not worked. The existence of sproutarians is more than enough to show that AV was spouting lies.

I'm sorry to tell you this but my own experience was that raw lungs were a tasteless, wholly cartilaginous, difficult-to-chew-mess, taking ages to gulp down in the end. I had such difficulty with them and never detected any positive(or negative) effect from them that I  stopped eating them  c. 12 years ago. Same goes for raw testicles from large mammals. Maybe I might have been able to easily eat them if they had been aged for a long time, who knows?

Science / Wood burning major cause of air-pollution

It seems that cooking via using wood is indeed a major problem re air-pollution...

Distilled is very dangerous. I once did an experiment drinking only distilled water. I found I was thirsty even after gulping down litres of the stuff. The stuff leaches away minerals etc. RO water sounds gimmicky and also removes beneficial minerals to some extent. I drink tapwater wherever I go as, in Austria, most places get lovely pristine water from the Alps. Italy, where I also travel to, has excellent mountain-stream water coming from the Ligurian hills. In London, however, I always drank spring water. I did not want to drink water that has already been through 8 bladders, after all.

Science / Re: Bacteria in gut same as in brain....
« on: November 17, 2018, 03:39:55 am »
Does not compute.... Why did the average brain-size of HG tribes decrease as well in tandem with those of settled peoples since the Neolithic era, if the good-food-bacteria/theory was correct?   One would have expected HGs to be less affected since their diets were better/fattier etc., and less processed/cooked overall. Hmm, the mass dysgenics hypothesis re decrease in average brain-size since the Neolithic era seems also debunked since HG tribes would have been more prone to natural selection that settled counterparts. Then again, Inuit have pretty large skulls(as do Mongolian tribespeople?) etc.? We need more data. Whatever the case, while bacteria have been shown to be very versatile, imo, good food seems to only promote better health, not necessarily enhanced evolution. For example, the meat to brain diet theory re increased brain size seems debunked by the fact that increased hominid brain size occurred before the point where meat-eating increased significantly.

Same here. Most long-termers seem to. By the time I started going rawpalaeo, I had developed very painful stomach-aches after eating any cooked animal foods, so I was discouraged from eating cooked animal foods 99% of the time for the first few years. I still occasionally ate a cooked omelette or whatever on rare occasions to see how my body responded. After a time, the painful stomach-aches subsided though I still felt indigestion to some extent from cooked animal foods. After c.5 years, I gradually started noticing that if I did ever eat any cooked animal foods, that I would vomit it all up if I ate large amounts. I also resorted to eating rice(ie  as in sushi) if I was expected to eat cooked foods as it seemed "less worse" than other cooked foods. After c.5 years, I noticed that I would get a hangover-like effect the next morning after eating cooked foods as my body needed to detox the resulting poisons afterwards. These days(16-17? years on), I am generally careful to include some raw animal food either before or during consuming anything processed as that avoids the detox.
