Off Topic / Medical blunder
« on: November 27, 2018, 12:48:35 pm »

I recently took a flu shot due to pressure and it was a disaster. 2 hours later, I got, for the first time in my life,  a painful UTI.

It pains me a bit that a raw-meat diet is being used in a show to degrade the celebrity contestants. Reality TV shows really are the pits as regards human values.

The above seems reasonable at first glance, but most government interference is very bad in the long run. Those Primal Dieters who did that wifeswap tv episode had all sorts of morons phoning up the police to report the parents and try to get them imprisoned and cut off from their own children - the parents were lucky as the police were reasonable and stated that the parents were innocent and the children were all healthy. It could happen to anybody.

More evidence that Neanderthals were not more primitive than modern humans, indeed quite the reverse:-

Eating high-meat made from raw, low quality meat should solve the antibiotics issues?

1) Cooking is not a solution, it just creates extra toxins and destroys bacteria and enzymes. Unlesss you have access to a machine-shredder like SB has it's a waste of time to deal with bones.

2) Could be detox? Then again, detox of this sort is less common in cooked diets as there are always toxins around in the body to deal with. Given past experiences of mine, it might be due to a mineral deficiency. In pre-raw days, I sometimes overdid the alcohol and got muscles in my legs seizing up, which seems to have been due to not enough intake of the right minerals. it could also be due to being 100% keto. Perhaps when switching to a RVAF diet, it might be an idea to also include raw veg and raw fruit in your diet.

3)There are always other options when faced with difficulty of access to high quality, affordable raw foods. One idea would be to carry on with Intermittent Fasting every 2nd day and continuing alternating. One does not need anywhere near as much  raw animal food per day as with cooked animal food due to raw foods having much higher nutrient-content generally, anyway. Plus, as I have found, the higher the quality of the raw animal food, the less one has to eat per day, unsurprisingly. Another option is to grow/raise your own food but, for that, you need your own backyard with some greenery. My own solution was to just keep looking around. My 1st available options were really bad:- 40 uk pounds sterling a kilo for organic 100% grassfed beef, and some truly disgusting very  intensively-farmed  meats and eggs. Then I found the LFM markets in London online and found some raw 100% grassfed ox liver which I got at first for free for some months before they insisted I pay 2 pounds sterling a kilo for the stuff given their efforts to give it to me instead of just as usual throwing it away. I also found that a lot of cheap raw wild game in vacuum-packed form was available(mainly raw wild mallard duck and raw wild hare). The wild hare was amazing , allowing me to drink 2  pints of raw, high quality blood from the wild animal, which was far more invigorating than any other kind of raw blood. I also went to local fishmongers, and, ,me being near the coast, I was able to buy raw cheap wildcaught seafood such as raw mackerel, which  was very tasty and nutritious. Just keep looking on- and off-line.

4) Animals in most countries, other than some tropical countries, are routinely given deworming  etc. medicines by farmers, even the organic ones, so it's a non-issue unless you live in Vietnam , Zimbabwe and the like. After 10 years of being rawpalaeo, I got an infestation of tapeworms, which was largely harmless other than the 1st 3 or 4 days when the parasites somehow managed to hurt my bladder whenever I urinated. After monitoring the experience for a couple of months, and not succeeding with herbal anti-parasite medicines, I got  a doctor to get me some anti-parasite drugs(praziquantel) and the problem was swiftly solved within 2 days. Fear of parasites/food-poisoning are so rare in RVAF circles , it's a non-issue. Oh, yes, I once or twice have eaten some dodgy raw produce(due to chemicals being present), but my body always reacted quickly with vomiting the stuff out soon after.

Science / What palaeo-era tribes really might have been like

Other sources claim they have been on the islands for at least 60,000 years. I suspect a much larger time spent there given past Out of Africa hoaxes re dates always being pushed back, myself(100s of thousands of years ago at least, but anyway...). The article is a fascinating read.

A few people have regained their health after eating raw supermarket meat, but this is not common. Bear in mind that a lot of raw supermarket meat contains as much as a third or two-thirds of the amount of AGEs found in the boiled equivalent thereof.So, those who are already in extremely bad health due to eating cooked diets for years may often not benefit enough from raw supermarket meats. The first theme is the rawness of the food(along with enzymes), then the amount of bacteria(ie how aged it is), then how high-grade it is re nutrients(ie grassfed or wild) and, lastly, if it has preservatives with it or not. At any rate, I did try eating raw supermarket meat from a butcher specialising in very intensively-farmed supermarket-type meats prior to going rawpalaeo, and  these did nothing for me.

I see the creeping evil of hipster, vegan cafes appearing in my neighbourhood here in central Europe. Fortunately, the one on my street went out of business some time ago.....

Health / Re: Skin issues and not feeling well
« on: November 21, 2018, 05:14:13 pm »
I had really bad inflamed skin for years prior to going rawpalaeo. It  was caused by a very slow delayed-action allergy to  dairy(raw and pasteurised). I was unable to sleep on my left side as a result. Just switching to raw grassfed and wild meats as well as fruit and veg helped solve those problems within 4 months or so. On an overall health-related basis over the years, I found that eating some raw organ-meats helped speed up recovery as did eating "high-meat" and making sure that the raw meat was either grassfed  or wild.Raw organic fruit and veg did not have the same sort of quick effect so I only eat organic fruit/veg  c. a tenth of the time. I should also point out that I am one of many who cannot handle a 100% meat-based diet. I have done some experiments with a 100% raw-meat diet and ended up with all sorts of health-problems after only 3 weeks.

Everyone is different. I find I thrive best if I have raw seafood at at least 10% of my monthly diet, yet no more than c.75%.

Are you certain it was not an issue with a specific brand of distilled? I have been experimenting with a brand called Divinia which is double distilled, low in deuterium as ancient water would be, and it has other unique properties. In contradiction to your experience I have a hard time drinking it and find I drink less than normal, which is not much anyways 1-2 cups. Maybe my body is telling me to abstain if I fact it is leeching minerals.

You are lucky to have access to great local water! Thanks for your thoughts.
Admittedly, I had only tried one brand of distilled water. But I still think that the problem was the lack of minerals etc. in the water, as opposed to some particular brand. I also found that, after going rawpalaeo,  my appetite for raw foods(or any foods) sank to zero as long as I drank London tapwater, which is really foul. While the Alpine and Ligurian tapwater comes from the mountains, it is only c. PH value 7.2, and the spring water bottles in London which were 7.8 PH or more were preferred by me. I particularly enjoyed the taste of the Brecon Beacons spring water which had a PH value of 8.4. Sadly, spring water in Austria is kept at 7.2 at most, generally.

What kind of sprouts did you eat for 6 weeks?
A lot of watercress and some alfalfa. Those 2 are the only ones I recall(it was after all c.17 years ago). Probably other types of sprouts were also involved but those 2 were the most  favoured and the ones I remember.

*sigh* Perhaps I did not make myself clear re full details:- after 2-3 years of being raw vegan and then Fruitarian, I switched to becoming sproutarian for a couple of months(6 weeks min, anyway) just eating raw sprouts and water(spring water) and actually did slightly better than on the former raw vegan/fruitarian diets. Admittedly, in those days, I did not overeat raw sprouts per day like I did in later experiments.

It would be a nuisance to try but I could easily  handle eating just raw sprouts for 15 days or more. I  actually did so prior to experimenting with RVAF diets. Prior to being a sproutarian, I had been a raw vegan, then fruitarian, and they had not worked. The existence of sproutarians is more than enough to show that AV was spouting lies.
