I'm taking an essential oil comboination. 2 drops of clove, oregano, cassia (cinnamon), thyme. It is sorta painful so  guess I'm about done. Anyone have any thoughts on that protocol?

Yes, and topical and oral medicines, OTC remedies, supplements, home remedies and such.
I guess it is just trial and error..

Dr. BG's site, animal farm has been a new source of learning for me. However, she is big on obtaining R3 over R2. I took that to heart and have been eating more soaked, cooked, and cooled chickpeas and mung beans. But, honestly I think I just felt better eating meat and the PS. Are you also incorporating R3 into your diet?

 I can believe the Legumes are not necessarily helping my inflamed gut but healing needs to take place at the microbial level. And adding other fiber with the RS is apparently the most therapeutic (hence the fiber in beans). So my intention to weed, seed, and feed the gut is underway. The weeding, I don't want to attempt until I order the GI Effects stool tests from the doctors.. and that is not for another month  :(

So I can at least feed the gut, and will get some tigernut flour. Can you give me a name for the Mung bean starch, I live in the mountains and there really are no Thai markets around.. I don't think. Relaxing my neck muscles is a goal for me, PS helps but I think it will continue to improve.

Your help is superb. Thanks

How do you make bone broth?
Glad it didn't taste like factory cow, ireland probably has higher quality meat

theres a huge discussion on wapf here in town about rancid fats now.  i just want to tell them all to just eat raw and aged animal foods and dont worry about it, its all those other ferments and beans adn grains and additions to the diet that are causing disbiosis in the guts leading to inflammation.

Jessica, I have been doing better with veggies but want to ferment them. Obviously meat is unrivaled but I feel like sauerkraut is less inflammatory than raw cabbage..

I have been on the path of Zero Carb for a while and found it helpful. I think it allowed my gut to significantly heal. As bone broths, and soups, and fermented cabbage didn't do a thing. GS pointed out the therapeutic effects and I can always resort back to it if my guts hurt. However, per Paleophil's advice, I added in Resistant Starch to the diet and finally have regular bowel movements (instead of IBS-D). I just need to be careful as I am feeling pretty full after eating more veggies.

wow, so I finally grew some balls and had a teaspoon and a half of PS in my slippery elm tea, with a quarter teaspoon of celtic salt. All of a sudden my constantly tight neck relaxed and my mood, which was not even bad today, improved. Pretty cool feeling.

I guess that was the next step..

So, if your  problems originally improved after eating carnivore style, do you think that is perhaps an important step in the process of healing the gut? The other day I pulled a raw beet from the garden and munched on it. The taste was great but I soon had a swelling feeling in my throat, which is very new for me. I fear eating mostly meat is making me more sensitive, and yes I know you pointed that out. But it feels as though, every inclusion of starch or carb feeds the bad bacteria first. I can tell with the antibiotics, acne and beneficial effects of VLC, I am clearly on a similar path that you took.

So can you think back to when your skin was still constantly breaking out and you were beginning to learn diet was the answer. What other things did you attempt? Perhaps fermented veggies or getting medical tests. I continue to eat close to ZC but I know with the right protocol, I can start getting some healthy bacteria and carbs in me again.

Get into a career that pays well, move if necessary, work smart and hard.
Thanks, I knew I'd get beneficial advice from everyone. Honestly these are all lessons I am already learning and trying to enforce. Especially making myself do things to keep my body and mind occupied and focused. Something I can now see is that I will always want to help other young people when their path gets bumpy. I am healing, I have support and I just need to conquer the fear and take action!
Much love everyone

I was trying to be nice. I am making more of an effort to understand and hopefully help the many lonely, angry, mentally unstable young men who show up here.

Yes, really. You're clearly a young, lonely, and very angry dude. People like that don't get much respect in this culture, and a lot of people of that type show up here. Instead of banning them or watching them flame out, I figure it can't hurt to try to talk them out of their delusions and create a safe space for them. The problem is that, here, the inmates FAR outnumber the staff. LOL

I have two kids and am on my second marriage. I've lived in a foreign country and had three different careers. Not that any of that is particularly noteworthy, but I can tell you the typical member here is a never-married young white male, angry, highly intelligent, and not doing well financially or career-wise. You're all of those, and that was me 20 years ago.

Oddly, accurate. I'm a restless, white, unemployed, afraid to go to school, straight A's in high school male. Antibiotics screwed up my gut and destroyed my skin. Lacking a developed inner life, my ego was crushed and I ran away, to suffocate in my own sorrow and grief. That coping method left me with the real kind of pain. I met rock bottom.

However, the point of this post (and my life) is to develop an understanding of this life from that experience. First, I developed a spiritual life. For me that meant, learning to ask for help and to understand we are all weak- for we all die. Patience came next, as after 2 years of antibiotics and another of deep emotional turmoil, my body has not healed quickly. The value of family followed when I allowed myself to come home and spend many long hours with my grandpa. Next came eating all meat, then mostly raw meat, and I finally stopped have diarrhea. I try to eat plants to establish a healthy gut biota, but it is hard for my to handle most of them, and the pain makes me feel so depressed.

Life's next lesson came slowly. It is about the internal doctor. You see, I regularly have thoughts about getting tested for parasites, or hormones, or blood, or my gut microbiome but I now am afraid of all hospitals and doctors offices. And I have been tortured with those thoughts until I recently found the playful movements of Qigong.
I do not know how I stayed alive for this long without it. I finally found something to ground me: to do more than walk through the pain. As I purge the blocked energy, the empty places have started to fill with love. So I no longer crave help from "doctors" because my stomach, and my skin, and my body are not under my control. Instead I focus on my attitude and my acceptance of myself, which I certainly control. 

Yet in the visible world, I am still a "young white male, highly intelligent, and not doing well financially or career-wise" and I want to change that. Clearly, I am not alone and perhaps others have been here before.

Gosh, I'm only twenty but I now suffer from the same problem! All the girls my age binge on boxed goods and smell like chemical cleaners. Plus I don't want to have children with a toxic wife. However, I do live near Amish country.. hah

hah jessica, I sometimes drink ACV and wonder why after I get that feeling on my teeth! But I was urine tested awhile back and had protein in my piss also. The doctor asked what I was eating. I said lots of meat and kefir and eggs. Since cutting milk and eating mostly raw meat, I have not had my urine tested again. However, I don't pee out oxalates as I don't consume much of the things jessica listed above. But I assumed it was natural to piss out excess protein. To me it seems the body is just excreting what it doesn't use.

Good post. Today after a hour of running, little dry salt beads were on my chest. I think I am starting to realize that salt is a problem for me. I went on vacation recently and had no access to "good salt" so I avoided it and since coming home have been feeling different..
Eating raw meat probably fills my salt requirements.?

Yea, he believes an all meat diet destroys diversity. But admits that saying if its good or bad is just speculation at this point.

General Discussion / Re: Bone broths best prepared raw, not cooked
« on: July 14, 2015, 08:22:53 am »
Wow, brilliant comment. I buy the whole carcass so there are plenty of tendons and joints. I would put them in the crock and gently brew for a day. When I consumed the broth it tastes "burned" and I feel worse. However, I recall drinking the soup after a short boiling time (because I was hungry) and liking it much more. I just never put it together.

So Eric, do you consume the meat in the meat stock or just the broth? I bet the tendons would also be easier to chew.

Second, I have an entire front leg of a lamb. I know the knee joint is good but what about that hard, thin layer of shoulder blade. Does anyone know if that is a tendon? It seemed to hard to chew and possibly to sharp.

Dear Phil,
Thanks for all the Gut Health info.
I am predominately Carnivore and I will be for a while. But I do not believe humans are meant to ONLY consume meat. So for months I would eat meat a couple days, then feel the need to snack on "healthy veggies" - often stomach upset and the runs followed. However, learning about FODMAPS helped greatly. I still have much to work out: like coconut oil and butter don't seem to benefit me, slippery elm tea feels great, and I have been to afraid to reintroduce FODMAPs.

But the catch is, I am therefore missing prebiotics. My problems came after two years of antibiotics, so my ruined flora almost killed me (seriously). However great I feel eating carnivore, I know the journey is not complete. Do certain prebiotics cause problems for you, which are your favorite? I got a bag of the potato starch but having started yet. I am unsure if it will just feed the bad guys in my system. I know the only true way is to listen to your own body but support and advice are two things I always appreciate.
Hope to hear back from ya, Kalo

grass fed is better than organic and I have never heard of lambs having their coat burned. That would be too much work as opposed to just skinning it.
