Consultations

Hey everyone!

So I started to offer consults!

As everyone who has read this blog knows, I used to be dying. I am no longer dying because of dramatic changes in diet. This worked for me, my mother and my father, and my husband (so it’s not purely genetic).

When I was trying to figure things out, I didn’t know who to turn to, and I had nobody to talk to. I felt like an outcast. This made me feel very alone and it was scary. My friends were skeptical about it so it was difficult in the beginning. It’s nice to be able to bounce ideas off of someone. So I’m here to lend an ear and to go into more detail about what made me feel better. I am not a doctor. I do not have a medical license. I am not a registered dietician. I won’t be diagnosing. Obviously. I am open with what I know and what worked for me. If you scour the internet most of what I think is out there, I’m not trying to hide anything and I don’t even hide what diet worked for me. Initially, it was extremely low carb (seen here). Then when that stopped working during the pregnancy I’ve switched to only eating beef, salt, and water. Sometimes some bourbon. That’s what works for me. Extremely well. I have no autoimmune disorder or mood or skin issues anymore.

No trickery, haha. I’ve done quite a bit of research into the microbiome, and I’ve tried basically everything under the sun to heal my own autoimmune and mood issues. The consult is a conversation and support. Someone to bounce ideas off of. I was getting requests and so I decided to fit it in. You don’t need to book a consult because most of the information is on the website anyway, but it’s there as an option for those who want it. I was already doing this through Patreon but it made more sense to do it through the blog because Patreon is a monthly subscription and a bunch of people who subscribed only needed 1-3 consults before feeling better (which was amazing). So monthly isn’t a good model.

I do have a waiver that basically spells this out for people when they book a consult. I’ve really been enjoying speaking with people so far. It’s nice to see people recovering. Sickness is beyond terrible. There isn’t a lot that’s worse than being ill. I’m not here to give people false hope, or to sell snake oil. I’m here to lend an ear and give support. Trying to navigate a health issue alternatively can be confusing and scary and there’s a lot of different information out there, most of which didn’t work for me.

Thank you guys so much for the support! It’s incredibly motivating and has really helped in the last couple of years. I haven’t worked on the blog like I should have been in the last month (I’ll have a post to update on why that was), but I’m back at it! I’m also going to start a YouTube channel! Not looking forward to figuring out how to edit videos…

    • I’ll write a post. I drink an oz of bourbon to about a pint of sparkling water. Then I drink two big cups before I go to bed. If I drink less water than that I’ll get a wicked hangover. I can drink 7-8 drinks this way and avoid a hangover. Alcohols that are pure (vodka, bourbon and silver tequila) don’t have added ingredients after distillation. Bourbon is stored in wood (that’s where it gets it colour) but I still don’t react to it. And by reaction I mean autoimmune symptoms and depression. I drink about once a week

    I can help with editing if you’d like. Reply and I can send you my work and details, maybe we can trade a few consults for work.

    Why would you charge people money so they can hear about your own experiences with the carnivore diet when there is enough free content already? (Several podcasts, your blogposts) Also, what advice could you possibly give that’s worth 75-120 dollars?

    The carnivore diet seems to work for a lot of people, both for the healthy and chronically ill but little is known about the long term effects.
    Even Shawn Baker is still skeptical but you on the other hand are not. You seem to be convinced that eating nothing but meat and drinking water is some kind of panacea but what do you really know? You’re no MD, you were a patient. You are in no way qualified to give consultations, you only know what works for you at this moment since you have only been on this diet for a few months.

    People that are chronically ill are desperate and would happily pay money, by charging them 75-120 dollars I think you are exploiting them since the advice is as simple as can be. Eat meat, drink water.
    People can go to /r/zero carb, meatheals.com, justmeat.co, gnolls.org to ask questions and share experiences, free of charge.

    And Shawn Baker (you know, the former orthopedic surgeon) runs a Facebook group called The World Carnivore Tribe. He offers a $49 a month nutrition and fitness plan. Shawn is someone who is more knowledgeable than you but offers his help for way less.
