I'll move the topic to that other forum.

Um, Edwin, if I may say so, isn't it  a bad idea to recommend really long water- or juice-fasts for as long as 14 days or more? I thought that 7 days would be the max, unless one is realy healthy.

The smoked salmon may be heated at a low temperature, but it'll have smoke-particles etc., and any processing is harmful. If you're following a cooked-diet it's a better option than many other processed foods(if it has no preservatives), but if you eventually want to follow a rawpaleo diet, things aren't going to work on a RPD diet  unless you ditch the stuff, IMO.

Oak-smoked fish would be useless, I'm afraid. Smoking requires heating up to 80 degrees centigrade, and contains toxic nitrosamines etc.
Out of interest, how did you come to our forum? You don't seem to have gone down the usual path of RAFers(Raw Vegan diet etc.) given your mention of fast-food.

Re wodgina's comments:- He's probably right re suggesting starting off with anti-candida methods first  before going rawpalaeo. It does take some time to acclimatise to rawpalaeo, anyway.

No idea. What are you eating right now? If dairy is part of your diet, then having leaky gut syndrome would indicate that you should remove the dairy completely from the diet.

Here's a general info-page on how to go Rawpalaeo, if you're curious:-

You should probably ditch the flaxseed oil and get hold of raw cod liver oil instead. The only good one I know of is the fermented cod liver oil product "Blue Ice".

What I find odd is that adrenal fatigue sites often mention that animal-foods are badly digested by adrenal fatigue-sufferers, but then recommend cutting down on carbs as they overstimulate the adrenals, apparently. This doesn't leave much of a choice. Fortunately, for me, early on in the diet, I found that raw meats, especially raw organ-meats, involved no problems with digestion, unlike the cooked meats.

How about taking the herb  licorice? It's supposed to be useful for adrenal fatigue.

Are you taking raw thyroid as well as raw adrenal?

Have you seen a doctor re all this, yet? I mean if it's truly dangerous and  adrenal-related,  such as with addison's disease, it's absolutely essential  to get cortisol injections. Though, it'sunlikely to be  as severe as that.

Also, the thing with adrenals is to avoid over-stimulation(alcohol/violent exercise etc.) in general, as that weakens the adrenals.

What concerns me is that you've made multiple changes in your diet and you're still facing issues. This suggests to me that you may have some condition that either isn't diet-related at all  or is related to some long-term nutritional deficiency which you've overlooked. Is "high-meat" effective re digestion-issues? I take it my past suggestion re enzymes didn't work for you? What about adaptogenic/stress-relieving herbs like siberian ginseng, schisandra, astragalus etc.? I'll admit these herbs were useless in fixing my health-problems pre-rawpalaeo diet, but I was in a Raw Vegan/fruitarian phase for most of that time, so they might work on a more healthy RAF diet.

I do apologise re my previous suggestion re Intermittent Fasting as it failed to work for you. I'm now more careful to warn against doing IF if one happens to have  adrenal-related issues - (though, contrariwise, IF did work for me pretty well when I switched, early on in the diet, from eating all through the day to 1 large meal a day, despite my own adrenal-related issues at the time).

I take it you were 100% healthy prior to doing raw vegan, or am I wrong re this?

Normally, I don't recommend supplements unless they're just raw glands, but this is a special case. Have you considered using hormones such as pregnenolone(a precursor for several hormones in the human body), mentioned by Ray Peat?  I've heard conflicting reports re success on it  as well as horror-stories re side-effects re this supplement, so, IMO, only small doses should be attempted for short periods(10mg). I'm grasping a bit at straws here, but if your symptoms are really serious, then that sort of hormone-regime(preferably supervised by a doctor) might work, for all I know.

There's some studies here:-

Otherwise you could search the rawpaleodiet archive googling under  "study" "studies" in the text-message section.

While I do think that cooking gave us smaller mouths, I don't view it as likely that food, whether raw meat or cooked-food in general, could be responsible for human brain-growth. More than likely, it was tool-use or something similiar.

Technically not. But if you happen to have a very seriously damaged digestive-system(such as a negative reaction to amines, then it's wiser to use other sources such as probiotics(amines are more common in fermented/aged  foods). Also, it's really best if you wait until you're fully used to the taste/feel of fresh raw meats and organ-meats. I found it, personally, impossible to handle high-meat  until I'd gradually got used to eating slightly-aged raw meats, gradually leaving longer periods of aging between trials.

General Discussion / Re: Eating Raw Animal Foods in public
« on: August 25, 2008, 04:50:21 am »
Just wondering, why?
Just because of what people might think?

What I mean is that people tend to get on with each other, partly because they have things in common. The more "out-of-step" you are with others, the more difficult it is to handle them. Eccentricity is usually only condoned if you've got a lot of material wealth - if you're a multimillionaire you don't have to care what others think.

In the case of RAFers, I don't think there's a single case of a RAFer, married to a non-RAFer, who eats a 100% raw diet, for example. We all have to make compromises.

What I mean is, even with people you know, it's probably best to eat more socially-acceptable raw animal foods in their presence such as sashimi(raw fish), raw eggs, steak tartare.

Boxcarguy, I would suggest not to promote this diet, overly. I don't think you should hide away in your kitchen and eat RAF, either,  but the vast majority of people are very limited and closed-minded about this subject, so it's best to be discreet and just mention it if asked, IMO.

General Discussion / Re: Grass fed vs. Grain fed
« on: August 22, 2008, 08:04:45 pm »
Ted provided quite a number of scientific studies proving his point. All grainfed-meat-consumers can do is claim that they're OK - of course, it all depends on one's idea of health. I suspect that grainfed-meat-consumers simply have  lowered standards as regards their definition of tru health.

If the butter is pasteurised, it makes no difference that it's from grassfed cattle. Pasteurised dairy is widely acknowledged as being the worst kind of cooked-food. You should try ghee as it contains fewer allergenic substances, but keep on looking for far better raw fats from goats/sheep(mutton/lamb) etc.

Health / Re: Itchy scalp

The usual natural remedy is tea-trea oil or lavender oil used on the scalp/hair.
The conditions associated with itchy scalp are seborrhoeic dermatitis(supposedly alleviated by eating extra omega-3 fats) and head-lice.There are one or two  other conditions such as sunburn or dandruff, but are likely not applicable here.

"1. Dental problems: severe erosion of tooth enamel (enamel hypoplasia) - caused by consumption of excessive amounts of acidic fruit like citrus, pineapples, kiwi - may be caused by acid reflux, due to overconsumption of sweet fruit, esp. dried fruit/dates; common in sugar addiction - very similar to dental damage encountered in bulimia (an eating disorder) - if damage already done, see your Dentist for restorative work: bondings, veneers, crowns, etc. - prevention is better than repair! Limit acid fruit, always brush with baking soda and floss after eating acid fruit, do something about acid reflux/sugar addiction. Have your teeth checked by your Dentist for enamel erosion.

I can't understand why your markets/farmers' markets are so crap in the US. One of the main reasons why our London markets are so amazing is that Nina Planck, a former Vermont-resident, brought over to the United Kingdom the concept of semi-organic farmers' markets - she's a Weston-Price/WAPF  devotee. Without her, we'd be in trouble. Yet, I keep on hearing about how Americans find their local farmers' markets to be mostly useless, being only seasonal, providing only raw fruit and veg.

Here's a topic from the General section which should prove useful:-

Also look at the recipes section as well(culinary creations forum). Make sure to buy high-quality grassfed meats. I found it impossible to keep on with the diet, when I first started, until I switched from eating  intensively-farmed, raw grainfed meat, instead of eating wild- or grassfed, organic meats/organ-meats.
