Info / News Items / Announcements / Industrial hemp
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:34:57 am »
 http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/05/23/hemp-seeds-delivered/9491181/

It seems like the intial phase of reintroducing indusrial hemp to kentucky is underway.

As a pro hemp activist I would like to go even further and start growing hemp in my own garden and sharing the plants with others who support the industrial hemp movement.

Personals / Hawaii
« on: April 06, 2014, 09:27:20 am »
My girl friend and I are going to Hawaii for ten days, and I am wondering about what to do about food.

I was wondering about using the trip as an opportunity to try new things. I was thinking about bringing a few pounds of lamb fat as a reserve, and then try to live primarily on fresh sea food, tropical produce, and coconuts.

I could use some advise on what would be the best seafood for a high fat raw paleo dieter, like myself, to try while in hawaii?

I have some serious questions about the entire Edward Snowden saga, but before I go off on a rant I would like to get some opinions from other people who may have different points of view.

Off Topic / Resolutions, Declaration, and Awakening in the new year.
« on: January 01, 2014, 08:01:41 am »
I have been doing much thinking as of late, such is my custom, and there is so much more I wish to do with this thing called life.

The more and more I learn about what is going on in the world, the more I feel a call to action. As I continue to seek out answers and grow in awareness this calling becomes harder and harder to ignore, the question is what should one do about it?

I have tried reaching out to the media, to bring Raw paleo to attention of the multitude, with limited success. There is a huge and growing interest in the Paleo diet, yet the industrial controlled scientific establishments refuses to give credence to our cause. Its possible the system is hoping that the Paleo movement is just the next fad that will go away. Well, we are not going away, there are already too many of us who have experienced the results first hand. There is momentum in the paleo movement, let us us this momentum to break through the stonewalls of the crumbling institutions and lay siege to the fortresses of ignorance and greed that are keeping us locked in the dark ages.

There is a 75 million dollar Heart disease/diabetes/ bariatric  center, which is Part of the university medical center, 2 miles from my home. The center regularly receives multimillion dollar grants, which are almost entirely wasted on experimental and ineffective drug based treatments. I have a deep seated conviction that if only the institution were to use that grant money to investigate nutritional therapy alternatives, then real breakthroughs could be made.

They are wasting ungodly amounts of money playing around with petri dishes while millions of people are suffering from conditions that could be corrected by the proper development of nutrition and lifestyle therapies.

http://research.med.uky.edu/news/uk-receives-113-million-cardiovascular-disease-and-obesity-research

So I have been thinking about going down there and requesting to speak with the people who run the research programs and talking with them about the paleo diet. I will be polite and Ernest about my conviction, that alternative nutritional therapy needs to be investigated first and foremost. I will speak to whoever will listen, and will try to reach the ears of the head honchos. Then depending on how that goes I will decide what to do next.

I was just curious if anyone else has any Ideas how to initiate positive change within the heart of these misguided scientist that run our University research facilities?

It is not enough to just gripe about, in the blogosphere and say its hopeless, I want to go to ground zero and look those people in the eyes and ask them to join the awakening, for the benefit of all humanity.

If the peaceful call to reason is not heard, then there will be no recourse but to use other means of gaining attention. In that case I would ask for advise and possibly more direct support for my efforts? Are there any revolutionaries out their who would pledge support for such a noble cause?

Imagine the kind of publicity stunts that we could undertake for the Paleo cause. Just like Martian Luther we could go to the front of the medical research establishments and nail a Reformation Declaration to their doors, or perhaps sneak in a hidden camera to film me pleading with the researchers to hear our case, and when they refuse to listen, post the footage to the web so that everyone can see how deliberately ignorant  and resistant to change the system really is.

These are a few of the ideas on taking the next step forward. I now open up this topic for discussion, please be honest in you advise, and thoughtful in your suggestions.

Health / Crohn's
« on: December 02, 2013, 08:31:32 am »
I have a friend who has been suffering from Crohn's disease for many years. He is very intelligent and somewhat educated on the condition, but its still difficult for me to explain to him that the underlying cause of the autoimmune inflammation could be dietary in nature and that a paleo diet could help immensely with his condition.

I was wondering if anyone has some good information about the real underlying causes of the condition, and how going paleo could help to cure the condition.

Off Topic / Russell Brand, is he a messiah or a bolshevik?

http://gawker.com/russell-brand-may-have-started-a-revolution-last-night-1451318185?autoplay=1

Strange times indeed when an actor and comedian calls out for world wide revolution. Although I am inspired by what he says, I am still skeptical. 100 years ago the Bolsheviks had a similar spiel and once the revolution was over, even bigger bastards took control than the ones who were thrown out.

Still he is right about many things, the time is now and we cant let the current political power structure set the agenda for the world of the future. The establishments politicians and their owners are not going to present the kind of alternatives that are needed to bring about the kind of changes that would benefit "We the People". We must take back the right to chose for ourselves what kind of world we want to live in, and take personal responsibility for the future we create.

Its the information age, anyone of us here is just as capable of being informed about the state of affairs in the world as anyone else. No longer should we allow decisions that effect everybody to be made behind closed doors by a small group of wealthy people, while the 99% are not allowed a seat at the table.

General Discussion / GMOs banned in Russia
« on: October 07, 2013, 07:49:03 am »
http://www.naturalnews.com/042325_GMO_ban_Russia_genetically_modified_crops.html

The rebellion is in full swing, the governmental intelligence agencies in many countries are becoming aware of the dangers posed by the unregulated use of genetic engineering.

Putin knows the danger of GMOs, he banned US chickens years ago due to quality issues.

The dangers are undeniably clear, and  whats going on here in America is a Crime. While the federal government shuts down and fusses over how to fund the health care swindle, they completely ignore the factors responsible for so many people needing governmental health care to begin with.

Health / Babiesiosis
« on: September 18, 2013, 08:27:20 am »
http://healthfreedoms.org/2011/06/21/rare-tickborne-disease-spreads-not-lyme/

I have had babiesiosis for at least 8 years, it has been put into quasi remission since going paleo, but it still flares up from time to time and causes me some vague health issues. I have ignored it the best I could and deal with it as stoically as possible.

In short
I had contracted a bad case of mono, and for months I was ill with chronic viral outbreaks, my lymph nodes would swell up for weeks on end, my liver was congested and pancreas inflamed. During that time my spleen was enlarged, and I believe it was permanently damaged. Other issues with digestion, blood sugar and food intolerance happened around the same time.

The spleen and lyphnodes are major components of the immune system that are responsible for removing parasites from the blood. Because my spleen was badly damaged I became susceptible to  Babiesiosis and have never been able to clear the infection. Though I have found relief from all my other health issues on this diet, this one still persist.

I had a blood analysis done by an herbalist today who saw Babiesiosis. I also have low platelets and large numbers of immature red cells a sign that the infection is weakening me.

Before I start any new protocol I would like to ask the advice of the forum.

Primal/paleo/raw food/Weston Price diet friends, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that my friend, Aajonus Vonderplanitz, passed away yesterday. He fell from the second story balcony at his home in Thailand, broke his spine, suffered internal bleeding, and was taken to the hospital, where he died. My condolences to any of you who also knew him personally. He contributed much to the field of nutrition and will be greatly missed by many.

General Discussion / Best Raw Jerky Ever
« on: August 24, 2013, 09:03:12 am »
I've been experimenting with making raw jerky for a while, and the dehydrator I was using just wasn't cutting it...even on a low setting would get the meat too hot and dry it out too fast for my liking.

So I took the racks off its base and set them over top of a fan, and OMG, I've been making the best tasting stuff ever.

Of course the fact that my last sheep was a very plump and rich flavored Shetland.

I have been taking the fatty cuts and laying it out in strips, then letting fan out for at least 24 hours. The fat will begin to melt as the red meat drys, so after a day of drying the flavor is brought out, and it has a tender chewiness covered in a creamy fattiness that is hard to describe.

Journals / The Butcher
« on: August 07, 2013, 04:51:16 am »
“When the student is ready the butcher will appear”

 The old fashion trade butchering is a dying art, being replaced by the assembly line and factory farming methods. There are still places to be found in the heartland of Kentucky where people produce and harvest their meat animals in a more traditional fashion. I have found a teacher who has been butchering since he was 7 years old and he is going to teach me all the skills in the trade. Perhaps I can use this thread to share some of what I learn on the way.

While driving out to slaughter a cow, we started talking about how humans are the ultimate predators. I was surprised how learned this old country butcher actually is. He begins to explain to me how it is actually best to eat meat raw, because in the raw state meat contains enzymes that enable it to be digested, and by cooking meat the body is taxed by having to produce more of its own enzymes.

We work out of an old military vehicle that has a home made crane with a wench attached to it. The set up is very nice and the work is fairly easy. From the time he drops the cow till it is skinned, gutted, quartered and put into a tank takes less than an hour. Then back at the shop we salt the hides and load the quarters into the refrigerator to hang.

I just got finished trimming out a whole beef, spent most of today learning about how to make all the cuts, and use all the equipment.

General Discussion / New approach
« on: October 03, 2012, 12:12:55 pm »
I've been working on a new approach that may help correct whatever imbalances that I had acquired.

I have been tring to find a suitable substitute for coconut butter, I tried real butter for a couple of weeks and it helped me gain back some weight, but it doesn't seem to digest very well. I have also tried adding some greens and one piece of fruit a day. The carbs helped increase my apatite, but the fiber interferes with my digestion. I am not sure if I will ever re-adapt to eating more plants, nor am I sure that its something I should keep tring at, if it gives me no good results.

Now I am going a different direction and would like to know if anyone has experience with using olive oil as a secondary fat source. I have been taking a swig out of the bottle between meals, and so far I have been tolerating it well.

I am also starting to eat chicken. The cartilage and bones are soft enough to chew up. Anyone else eat chicken bones?

On my journey I have learned many disciplines. Martial arts, contact sports, rock climbing, yoga, sheep wrangling etc.

Now I am training to pole dance twice a week at an alternative fitness studio. Those girls who teach the class are in great shape :). Its complete workout with a great view.

Health / Elevated lead
« on: September 02, 2012, 11:25:53 am »
I just recently tested above the safe range for lead. It could be from occupational poisoning or a dirty animal, it could even be a bullet fragment from this sheep that I had to shoot.

6.5; which isn't extremely high, but its still been know to cause health problems in that range. Also my symptoms of low energy and feeling down started about two months ago, so I may have been acutely poisoned back then and the levels have dropped off since.

I also have something odd going on with my white cells. My Eos are over 30, the same thing had occurred in me years ago when I had chronic fatigue syndrome. I would have flare ups and my Eos would shoot up, its a clear sign of either poisoning or parasite infection, or perhaps a combination of the two.

The symptoms are vague and include loss of apatite(I have lost about 10 pounds)
Nauseousness, foggy headed, depression.

Perhaps there is some other kind of poisoning, but the health care system around here is so screwed up that I wont be able to get into a clinic for two months, unless I can come up with a few hundred dollars out of pocket to pay for more extensive testing.

Even if they find anything there probably wont be anything they could do.

I may just need to get more minerals and hope things work out on their own.

Health / Post meal Ketogenic crash?
« on: August 14, 2012, 08:15:29 am »
I have been dealing with some weird symptoms lately, that have been difficult to pinpoint.

I have been eating an extremely low carb diet for a while now with no issues at all, but recently I began working out more intensely than usual. I have noticed a very heavy weak foggy headed feeling after meals during the last couple of weeks. It was almost like a low blood sugar episode, but somehow different. I tested my sugar after meals and it would actually drop from mid 80s, to mid 70s. Its not hypoglycemia, but it feels like my brain is starving for energy.

The last couple of days I have been eating some avocado and raw coconut before my meals and the issue has resolved. I think perhaps my body is needing more carbs to accommodate for the extra intense workouts along with the demanding work I do.

Its all new territory for me because I have never needed to add extra carbs before. Have  any other low carbers had similar experiences?

Off Topic / Hobbies
« on: July 31, 2012, 08:22:21 am »
I am a man of may interest and have a number of hobbies.
Besides being a raw paleo health enthusiast I enjoy a variety of activities.

(Including)
Studying and discovering occult knowledge.
conspiracy theory
Fire poi
soccer
martial arts
monkeying around
making babies

My latest obsession is pole dancing. I have been trading out work for free classes at this new dance studio. Its a lot of fun and the instructors are extremely impressed by my natural ability. I am thinking about training for at least the next three months. Hopefully I will get good enough to set up an awesome routine.

General Discussion / aged goose egg.
« on: July 20, 2012, 07:15:51 am »


I put this egg in a jar of compost and let it age in a cupboard for about four months. I am going to crack it open and eat it this weekend.

Just wondering if anyone has experience with century eggs?

Does it have the same effect as high-meat?

General Discussion / Wild Ram chase
« on: March 14, 2012, 11:02:26 am »
This past weekend I had the luck of going on a persistence hunt of an AWOL ram.

I had a 80 pound ram brought to my house and put it in a pen to await slaughter. This one was a bit on the wild side and it butted the gate open then ran out into the yard. My yard backs up to a 180 acre open field, and my children had made an opening in the fence so they could go back and forth through what my son calls "the Jungle". Well that ram bolted right out into that field and the chase was on. I would track it and lose it, and then find it again jumping from thicket to thicket.

I ran it around the whole property and eventually the land owner came out to see what I was doing. I explained that I was running after my sheep, he didn't believe me at first, until out it ran from behind some brush. Then we both began chasing after it. Finally I said 'we may have to shoot it', so he went to get a gun, but by the time he came back the ram had run across the road into an other yard, and the guy wouldn't shoot it off of his own property. So we cased it some more.

It then took to the open road and started down the highway, we hopped in a truck and followed it about one mile. The damn thing wouldn't get out of the road and two cars were stuck behind it. Eventually it hung a right and went into a field. It hopped through a fence where a donkey and large horse were kept. The donkey attacked it and chased it around the yard until it eventually became exhausted and stopped to hide behind a honeysuckle tree. Then we finally grabbed it and brought it back home.

My legs are still a little sore, but it was all good fun, and good eating.
