Hi Everyone!
« on: August 28, 2010, 12:20:52 pm »
Hi Everyone!

I've been following different people's posts for the past couple weeks and have decided to become a member.  My journey with raw paleo began this summer and has been encouraged after reading so many positive experiences.  I am 22 years old and have spent the last 9 years endlessly researching for the reasons/cure for my mystery illness.  This past June I was finally diagnosed with lyme disease.  I have literally tried everything to rebuild my health, which has brought me to raw paleo!  I am currently living on raw milk, raw beef, and raw butter.  While I'm working to rid my body of this infection with a doctor, this diet has been my saving grace for the last couple weeks to combat the debilitating fatigue I have lived with all of these years.  There is definitely something to this diet!!!  I am hoping for any and all suggestions to recover my health 100%.  I have read a lot about zero carb and I'm wondering if that is the next step I should take, but I'm not sure if I should give up the raw milk with all of its healing benefits.  I'm hoping to learn more that I can do to quickly recover so I can fully live my life!!  :)

Lyme Disease is often a symptom of an already weakend immune system and any medical treatments only temporarily keep the bugs at bay, and if the bodies conditions aren't improved there will be remissions.

It is a hidden epidemic that causes problems in many people who are completely unaware of whats happening.

I was ill as well with an unnamed condition that resembled Lyme, the doctors called it chronic fatigue , Epstein Barr syndrome, but I also had blood parasites.

The point is, that my immune system was fried and I only got relief from eatting zero carb raw paleo.

I really think that raw paleo fortifies and stimulates positive immune responce while the zero carb improves metabolic functioning and helps the body to starve out harmful pathogens

My suggestion would be to try to move toward Zero carb while slowly introducing age meat and eventually high meat into the diet.(I believe AV is right on about how high meat is the ultimate immune system building tonic)This has worked wonders for me

I am personally wary of any type of dairy, although some people can tolerate it , I think its less than optimal. At least try to phase out raw milk while switching to zero crab, and see if there is improvement,
If dairy/ carbs are causing any problems you should notice improvements fairly quickly.

Each paleo diet should be tailored to give you the maximum healing potential, just pay close attention to how these dietary changes affect you and once you become adapted to a high fat low carb diet you should be amazed at how you body begins to instinctively crave the food you need to heal

There's a lot of experimentation you need to do. For example, I am one of many who do very badly on raw, zero-carb and thrive on raw, omnivorous palaeo diets.Also, like many RVAFers, have suffered greatly from including raw dairy in my diet in the past. There's also other things you should eventually try  out such as "high-meat" as mentioned above, or Intermittent Fasting etc.
