General Discussion / Types of raw fat
« on: April 08, 2018, 07:06:33 pm »
Hi,

I know of the following types of raw fats: Raw eggs, Raw butter, Lard, Tallow, Bone marrow, Avocado, Raw nuts and seeds, Cold pressed oils such as olive, flax or coconut and Coconut fat (from juiced coconut).

I´d like to eat more raw fats but I need the ones that are easy to digest. I have issues with avocado, pig, raw nuts and seeds and possibly butter, so what would you recommend. I read tallow can be hard to digest? I have an issue digesting beef and pig, so I guess lard and tallow would be out? Also, it´s impossible to get good quality (organic, pastured) lard, tallow or bone marrow here, can you suggest a store that ships internationally?

Thanks

Hi all,

I am curious to what you attribute your current or past sicknesses to, when you were a child and when you became a grown up. Do you think your health related problems were/are a direct cause of what your mother ate while she was pregnant, what she fed you during postnatal care, what they fed you during childhood or what medical treatment you received?

I think it would make sense to get peoples opinion of why they think they had certain health issues later life. I for example attribute my ADHD issues at school to too much gluten in my diet. Possible side effects to vaccinations might have played a role too. The fix for ADHD back then was Ritalin which had hallucinating effects that lasted for years. I also think the fluoride tablets were the direct cause for the dental misalignment which could be fixed with bracelets only. Of course some of these issues could have had genetical reasons, however I doubt that.

Suggestion Box / Prenatal/Parental/Childrens section needed
« on: March 17, 2018, 02:59:10 am »
I love this site but I think what´s strongly missing is a section about one of the most important topics concerning our future generation. Our children. For that reason, can we please have a Parental section where we can discuss important things such as pregnancy, infant/child nutrition including children´s sicknesses/diseases? It´s nearly impossible to find something about the RAF diet in combination with pregnancy, children and nutritional upbringing. It´s such an important topic!

If our parents would have fed us the right nutrition during pregnancy or during our upbringing, or had the knowledge that many of us have now, most of us would probably not have suffered from grave illness and disease. So why not prevent it in the first place?

Thanks  :)

Hi all,

I am pretty confused about the acid/alkaline topic. As we all know, the stomach itself is very acidic but where I get confused is that certain foods apparently turn the body alkaline, which is supposed to be good for the body. An acidic body is considered unhealthy. But, in order to digest animal proteins our stomach needs to be acidic. So we should not eat vegetables or veggie juice right before or with animal proteins, since veggies are mostly alkaline and interfere with acidic foods such as raw meats.

I have low stomach acid, so i have a hard time digesting raw veggies and raw meats. Dairy is ok unless its goat milk, cuz that´s apparently alkaline forming which i can confirm, since my digestions isnt good when i mix it with raw meats. However, cow milk with raw meats seems to be good since cow is apparently acid forming.

So my question is, in order to be fully healthy, what in the body needs to be acidic (I assume the stomach) and what should be alkaline (the blood)? And should I only focus on acidic foods since I want to increase my HCL naturally? I don´t want to run into the risk of consuming too much acidic foods which might cause more issues. I read that vegetarians/vegans sometimes have a hard time getting back to animal proteins, since the body didn´t need to produce such a strong HCL. So when they switch they have issues.

General Discussion / How to do High Eggs
« on: February 14, 2018, 02:14:42 am »
Has anybody tried High Eggs? And how did you do them? I read that the chinese sometimes eat rotten eggs which are decades old. But I don´t want to wait 10 years for that one :) Could you do them as u do High Meat? Like crack them open, put them in a glass jar and air them every 2-3 days for a month or more? Or does the egg need to be closed and stand for many months/years to become "High"?

Hi all,

Its impossible for me to digest any more raw meat. It gets stuck in the intestines even though i eat raw fats with it. So I get very bad indigestion and everything blocks up. I´m missing the bacteria to digest raw meat. I´m certain about that. The last time I had indigestion I took high meat twice a week (1 marble sized piece). for around a month. That pretty much fixed my digestion in some way and I could eat raw meat usually without issues. Now I am at the same stage, but worse due to a recent "flush". I thought of increasing my bacterial count by doing HM again. My question is how often can you take HM? I want to speed up the process. Is it safe to eat it more than once a day, every day and for how long? I remember AV said that you shouldn´t take it on a weight loss cycle. I still don´t understand what he meant by that. Did he mean that you shouldn´t eat it when ur underweight? Which I am.

I also thought of something else. I have issues digesting raw salmon. It´s worse than with raw beef. Could it be that if you take high meat of the meat you can´t digest, afterwards you receive the bacteria from HM to exactly digest that meat? Any thoughts?

Primal Diet / Raw fish liver instead of beef liver?
« on: January 04, 2018, 06:31:03 am »
Hi Guys,

AV and many other raw fooders always praised raw beef liver. However, since im currently abroad I can´t find any organic beef (or similar) liver. The only organic liver that I could get is from wild caught fish. Does anybody have experience in eating raw fish liver? Would the nutrient content be similar? Anything I would need to be aware of?  I don´t wanna miss out on such a nutritional powerhouse  8)
