Rogue Farmer: My experience was very similar. I live near a fresh stream but was at my parents house and had to use a filter and the water tasted poorly. I truly went to the hospital just for the IV to turn around my dehydration and fasted to get the illness out. But I never thought to try adding lemon or ACV to the drink. Everyone kept drinking to force soda down my gullet which I refused.

PaleoPhil:Very good point. I hate the allopathic style of healing in America but the life saving IV humbled me a bit. Nonetheless, I have a deep dislike for doctors and "specialist" so much so that it is probably a phobia. I am not looking for the answer here, just helpful experiences.

Thank you, good I can be sure it is not meningitis! Boy am I thankful I didn't get that painful spinal tap done! I wonder if my symptoms are similar to a type of food poison?

A couple new thoughts.
Last week, tuesday I got sick. My head felt like there were needles in it and it hurt to move. Diarrhea kicked in and then I puked up a bright green liquid. Afterwards, I puked up all the water I tried to consume. A day later I went to the doctors and she had me go to the ER. They took forever to give me an IV and I was terribly dehydrated at this point. They gave me 2 mg of morphine but I wouldn't allow anything else. I felt better after the third IV and had to continue to stop them from putting more drugs into my body. My neck was very stiff and so meningitis was the thought. But I didn't want the spinal tap so I don't know what got me. I recovered quick by continuing to fast.
I still wake up stiff in my back and neck and I can't jump around because my head will still tingle. The pain was terrible but I have just accepted my fate in this human body. And I'm grateful to feel better.
So I guess eating raw foods has been harder since my appetite is back. Although the last thing I ate was cooked chicken..
Needles in head and most pressure behind eyes, sore back and neck, vomiting and runs. Any ideas besides meningitis?

No, I just went by taste and smell. Ending up liking fruit. What kinda signals?

Yea I just put all the organs in a casserole dish together, and I'm getting through them. But I'd rather eat fresh liver than frozen. I froze the stomach and intestines and I don't think I have the courage to do anything but compost them! Thanks for the tip on older cows as I can get those cheaper, although I do not have much space for it. What about older sheep. My 13 month old lamb already taste pretty strong to me.

Good point, salt and raw meat is nasty. But sure tastes good with a rare steak

Hmm, I thought there was a lot of good quality beef there. All the lambs in the stores come from AU. Honestly, after butchering the animal and having all the organs and stuff, I still love the meat. Plus the blood and things are sorta difficult for me to just indulge in. You could order a sheep from a farm and have the butcher keep the organs bagged up.

Me either. Well, yea there is a risk. Honestly, I started with frozen grassfed beef from good sources and I am glad. Freezing kills the beef and anything in it. Jumping right at wild meat might be mentally tough, plus you gotta catch them suckers.
But we risk everytime we drive or run on a road. Just pick your battles  >D

Oh great! thanks man.. so for the first animal, it got mixed with a good deal of blood. Do you melt it down, I don't want it to spoil being all wet and in a big plastic bag..
How is the season going for you? Also the liver looks very fresh and shiny but there are some small holes running through it. Are those bad or just blood vessels?

Carnivorous / Zero Carb Approach / Wooo!

Wooo! Boy did I have a good day. I went and checked out a pastured farm. Arriving at the farm, the garage door was open but autoless. Instead two buggys were parked. It was my kinda place.
I asked for the man who I talked to yesterday and was pointed to a big building. An amish guy, young like me, blood on his shoes was waiting for me.
THe lamb was hanging from a rope, skin still on, under an open porch. It was like a dream. I got to skin the animal (punching fist technique) then helped to gut the fella. I learned sooo much and kept every single organ. Although he had already drained the blood.. amish don't keep that. I kept the stomach too but drained all the "green smoothie" out. I don't know how that could be eaten! Then we took the carcass inside and I hack sawed it to fit in my cooler. Getting through some of the bones was a task!
So the legs are apart and the middle is cut into, two ribs and the lion. I kept the stomach and intestines in one bag, the skull liver, heart, tongue, and brain, in another. And the next sheep he butchered, I took all the internal fat again!
I have to store this better. I'm gonna get hooks for all the muscle meats, and some of the organs but what can I do with all the extra fat, its very runny. And what about all the guts, I feel like they will spoil quickly.
Shucks, I'm pumped

I'm going to a pastured farm tomorrow mornin' - man is selling me a 130 pound lamb for 3$ per pound. For 30$ he is gonna quarter it, or eighth it and cool it down (not freeze it).
Obviously, I'm gonna take the organs and the head!
But I wonder how much cooler space I need to transport it home. And all I have is a mini fridge haha!
And what could I put the blood into? A big gulp..

Yes, those look more similar, they had white on them too. I live in the Appalachian mountains, the forests are lush with poplar, oaks, cherry, walnut, but the spruce and ash trees are dying ( Well I guess most every species is dying). Make sure you get those last few before they multiply!! And sleeping in a barn, he must be tough!
*zinc, phosphorus, sulphur and b vitamins* are hopefully in raw meat and eggs because I do not do anything else!

Sir, I just tried to eat from the plant world the last week and paid the price greatly. It is like their toxins spread into my blood and my body sags. My stomach feels so twisted, my thoughts turned very depressed, I feel like I lost all my progress. I am a fool for being scared out of eating as a carnivore but now I also feel anger. Do not spread propaganda, we are all unique and I see others who stand up for ZC shut down.

No jessica, thanks for replying and not making me feel like a creep! Yea I caught some of the little bastards yesterday. They are mostly just black specks, with barely noticeable legs. Gosh if they were bed bugs, I would lose it.. Like i'd just go sleep in the yard. WHy is that your life -[

I had freaking flea bites all over me this morning. Tonight around dusk, they began biting me. I realized "hooo, they are not in my bed, but living on me. So I soaped my body and hair ( which I can now put into a small man bun) and waited. In the shower I also found a deer tick on me!
So, I guess in the end the fleas were good. I really don't want lyme -till my immune system is top notch atleast. As I live in the hottest spot for lymes.
diet protocols suggested? something tells me garlic.
So I had my cousin shave my head and I've now got one sideburn, two bald patches, and 25 itching dots.
P.S. Where do flees hide if anyone knows? please don't tell me in my butt  :P

Hmm good point jessica. I ate an earthworm today :o , I wonder if that was a good idea??? But the less plants I eat the better. Sometimes I eat the scoby off my fermented Jun culture, but it's taste is very vinegary - so doesn't feel very paleo!

I enjoy my good quality beef but until I get my butchering skills, I can't make high meat because I need Fresh meat. So I took my last two Garden of Life Men 50 & wiser probiotics this morning and I am wondering if ya'll have any probiotic suggestions, besides high meat which I'm sure will be superior. Are there probiotics more geared to carnivores?

Also I'm just about ALL raw meat, after reading some of Lex's journal, I know my body definitely still converts the protein to glucose, so I shouldn't really call myself zero carb. Anyway, what is the role honey plays in the digestion of meat? I find I really crave it sometimes, I'm not to worried about the ketosis thing, I just want a strong stomach again.

And I'd prefer honey & frozen steak!

I brew green tea, and gently warm raw honey. Then add a scoby called jun. It has a unique taste and my aunt loves to drink it all!

YS: Cattle is also much easier for me to find, especially grass fed. That would be some experience getting a live cow into your garage!! But I'm surprised you don't notice a difference with frozen/fresh. I can only find large orders of beef which have been already frozen, but perhaps that is not as much an issue as I thought.
