Hi, new here
« on: November 22, 2014, 01:49:20 am »
Hi,
I'm a 20 year old guy from Belguim. I apologise in advance for any grammar or spelling errors as English is not my first language.
Although I'm young I have already gone through some health challenges and different diets. What follows is a summary of my eating history and some questions.

The diets that harmed my health were: Lots of junk foods when we moved from the country ( I was a young healthy boy there on a Weston price-ish diet) to the city. The junk food phase lasted about 3 years and wrecked my health, espicially liver and bowel related. I noticed my health was detoriating and changed my diet back to a more typical 'healthy diet' with lots of grains and cooked meats but also some local fruit and vegetables. As I was young my health improved somwhat again but was still not great. Then I got into weightlifting for about 4 years. The overconsumption of protein did a lot of damage to my liver and overall health. I decided to try different diets to heal myself. First I did a raw vegan kind of thing with still some hard boiled eggs in it... weird I know, it only lasted 4 months as I could not digest all those raw vegetables. Then I went ayurveda style with lots of cooked grains, vegetables and nuts but no animal products. The ayurveda thing lasted about 2 years and I really damaged my body by the exclusion of animal foods but it went so gradually that I always felt like I could go on.I also never properly digested any meal. Also I did some liver flushing while doing the ayurveda diet and that actually really helped mitigate a lot of the negetaive effects from eating all that cooked food, deficiency problems etc. After 2 years I felt really bad: vit B12 deficiency , tiredness simply from taking the stairs, brain fog, social anxiety and anxiousness in general, constipation and digestion issues, fibromyalgia (which I still had from my overtraining/weightlifting times),...

Now I have been expiremting with raw foods and have found raw eggs to really help in cleansing esp. my liver and helps digestion, raw honey (even in bigger amounts, only temporarily of course) has helped my pancreas and blood sugar stability and raw milk (I'm aware of the calc:mag ratio and the hormones) has helped with my weak bones and joints and makes me more stable.

I have some questions though, I can't seem to find a good source of grass fed animal fat/organ meats. All I can find is butter and avocados, would that do ? My parents won't let me eat raw fat from the bone anyway, I don't blame them though, everyone in Belguim eats a cooked diet I'm the one doing those 'crazy things'. I don't really care what everyone eats though, I feel good on raw foods and have no doubts.
I notice liver flushing is not really mentioned a lot here although nearly everyone coming from a SAD/cooked diet has a somewhat compromised liver. Is this because a raw paleo diet heals the liver also? I'm asking because I want to do some high fat, lower carb phase because for now I feel it would really help me regarding blood sugar stability and mood etc. But for a high fat diet one needs a lot of bile and therefore a clean and well working liver.

Well this was a long post, again I apologise for any unclear sentences. After all, you can't expect a nutrient-deficient kid to write a perfect post. lol

That's right, you seemed to be the only one.. I have tried it once, but it was a moderate version with 1 egg yolk, a lemon and a tablespoon of oil. It does seem to create some rumbling around the liver, but I don't always have the time to do the enema after 5 hours. Today I have actually tried to just eat about 5-6 raw eggs in the morning over 1 hour and it seems to work equally well but I'm not sure if that will completely clean the liver.

Welcome.

Even with my age in the sixties and very sick, I've gotten good results without special liver flushing or other cleanses. Simply put, if you cut out the junk that humans are not supposed to eat anyway, your body will start to clean itself up. I want to clean up the toxins from cooking, too, so I eat everything raw. I buy meat "untrimmed" so there is a lot of fat on it, plus my butcher gives me chunks of fat for free if I ask for it in advanced. I buy beef from a butcher, seafood from a fish market, and whole lamb from a good ranch. I am always looking for good food sources, and I find new sources even now, three years after starting to eat raw.

Good luck. I hope you find a way to stay raw.

Welcome! :)

I  am with Eveheart.. no fan of liver flushes here..... I rather eat some dandelion out in the woods... great for liver health :)
Wild herbs are awesome. And for free :)

My advice to you would be

go heavy on seafood......... raw seafood. Oysters are the best.. but any raw fish, better wildcaught, will do You need DHA. really.
Get out of the city as soon as possible. Cities are huge EMF pools today. You are bathing in wifi signals, cellphone radiation... 4 G....Really bad for you. It destroys the signaling in your body. Dehydrates you. Disturbs your sleep.  It is not only the food.
Get early to bed and raise early, get enough sleep, avoid blue light (computer, TV, artificial lights) after sunset.
Be as much outside in the nature as you can.
Keep it on thye cold side, dress less instead of more... keep windows open in the bedroom... cover up just enough to be comfortable.
Get daylight and sunshine... tan nude if you can.. it is amazing for healing anything I would say
Drink lots of good spring or well water. I drink 3-4 liters/day. No tap water!

Thanks for the reply, same to eveheart and GoodSamaritan by the way, I really appreciate all the advice and different viewpoints. As for the egg yolk flushing, it does seem to have a positive effect on my liver and digestion so I think I'll continue those for a while till I don't feel like it's helping anymore.

I have a question regarding the fish. I have, after a lot of looking around, been able to find a good source of fresh ocean caught cod. However,  I noticed that cod has a very low fat content and they won't sell the whole fish, only the meat... should I eat some kind of fat source like butter along with it ? I have also been able to find scallops and mussels, no oysters so far. Can I ask why you suggest the seafood?, just curious :D.
You mentioned keeping it on the cold side, but I kind of already feel cold pretty fast, especially now, there has been no sunshine for a week here, I really hate that, suggestions for keeping warm are always welcome.
