So I’ve noticed more and more that when I get sick I get a flare up. I knew this before but it’s changed a bit. I used to get sick every single time I flew. It would be a fever and it would last about two days. Sometimes it would evolve into bronchitis. Literally every time I flew. It happened to dad too. We’d travel, be in bed for 2 days with a fever, and then be fine. So I Read More
I’ll start with a quick overview: Unsaturated fats: Monounsaturated fatty acids have one double bond and polyunsaturated fatty acids have two or more double bonds. Foods like vegetable oils are high in polyunsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats will be liquid at room temperature because of the double bonds in the carbon chain. Saturated fats: Saturated fatty acids have no double bonds in their molecular structure. Food like animal fats are high in saturated fats. Saturated fats will be solid at room temperature Read More
This isn’t such a bad one either!
I’ve decided to write a response in response to Rhiannon Lambert’s Instagram post mentioning me. (And the subsequent article scene here). The Instagram post doesn’t bother me that much, but even the picture of her posing with a pen is a tinyyyyy bit aggravating. I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about my “reported” arthritis… I’ve copied parts of her Instagram post. They’re in bold: “More energy. Less body fat. You can even cure depression and arthritis’, well that’s what American psychologist Read More
In 2005, I was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 18. I was unable to hold a pencil, could barely walk, and was in constant pain. Other notable symptoms included extreme fatigue, depression & anxiety, brain fog, and sleep problems.
The next four years were pretty ugly; I was maxed out on Methotrexate while concurrently taking high doses of Prednisone, Leflunomide, and Humira. Despite being on multiple heavy-hitting meds, I was still struggling with basic day-to-day tasks. Due to my poor response to treatment, the inclusion of an IV treatment such as Remicade was also under discussion.
Thankfully, I avoided Remicade and have slowly reversed my disease over the last 10 years using diet, movement, and functional medicine. I’ve successfully dropped 3 out of 4 meds while lowering my disease activity significantly and hope to eventually be in full remission.
Hopefully, this one won’t get me in trouble but I’ll put it out there because I haven’t found any info on it anywhere else online. And I did google it when I was wondering. Unfortunately, this inability to consume basically anything except for pure distilled alcohol, water, beef, and salt, also means I can’t do any fun drug. About two months ago I had a terrible cold, and I can’t take any painkillers so I was laying there (basically dying) Read More
Sorry about the delay! After eating only beef, salt and water since January 2018 it’s basically completely normal – with slightly raised ferritin levels). That’s 9 months of only meat, and 8 months of only beef, salt, and water. Crazy. Here are the pictures of the tests: I’m going to test testosterone next, just out of curiousity. Comment about what else you want to see and I’ll write it all down and get it tested for the next round. The ONLY Read More
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/mikhaila-peterson-jordan-peterson-an-all-beef-diet-cured-my-depression-7hrxc97bq Damn. In The Times. Life is crazy.
This has been a busy week… Decided to bunch them all here so I can keep track. They don’t bother me. They kind of crack me up actually. Partly because I can understand how a diet of beef, salt, and water sounds insane. But mostly because it actually works and that’s also insane. What am I supposed to do? Stop having an autoimmune disorder due to dramatic changes in diet and then hide that information from the world? Haha. AS Read More
I thought it was fairly fair considering how controversial the diet is. I was expecting wayyyy worse. But you can’t placebo away arthritis that casually eats joints at age 17… https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/stephaniemlee/jordan-peterson-daughter-mikhaila-meat-carnivore-diet
