Gym after baby and for the first time since 2015… Suck it up.

I’ve been doing floor exercises since June or July (3 or 4 months), slowly getting stronger. Using 5 pound weights for my arms and just doing bodyweight exercises for my legs with some rubber bands. It started off ridiculously slow. I could hardly do 10 of these guys on my left leg: And I couldn’t (and still can’t) get my leg straight on my right side because of the hip replacement: It started off incredibly frustrating but I got stronger Read More

Really important read – Paleomedicina – Evidence the beef diet works

“We believe that the PKD is the only evolutionary adapted diet for humans. Rehabilitation of chronic diseases is most effective when the diet is limited to our real physiological needs. Eating fruits and vegetables does not form part of our physiological need but are associated with risks.” (PDF) Therapeutic protocol of Paleomedicina Hungary. Available from: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/323151200_Therapeutic_protocol_of_Paleomedicina_Hungary This place (Paleomedicina) has actual doctors prescribing a high fat meat diet to successfully treat chronic disease. With hugely positive results (much more effective Read More

Questionnaire (please fill in!!)

Here’s a survey I’ve been working on for 3 years. I began working on it when I first realized that there were overlapping symptoms between autoimmune disorders. It takes about 25 minutes to complete, and I would really appreciate people filling it in. I’m trying to get as much data as possible so I can work on (hopefully extremely useful) scientific paper. I think people will also find the questions interesting. I’ll be looking at how certain symptoms clump (what’s Read More

Update April 8 2018 – Jordan Peterson’s Diet – Zero Carb

Hi guys So Dad’s going on the zero carb diet – that’s the all meat, carnivore diet. With salt and sparkling water. Why? He had good results with the previous diets. In the greater scheme of things, I would say excellent results. We managed to keep the extreme depressive episodes away, he’s off medication, he lost 50+ pounds, his autoimmune symptoms went away. All in all, great results. So why the change? He’s doing it for almost the same reason Read More

Debunked – The China Study

I’m going to keep this EXTREMELY brief, and very simplified. If it’s too simplified for people’s liking let me know, but I don’t want to bog people down with information. Comment with thoughts, suggestions, other studies you’d like to know about, or more areas to read about the china study. What is The China Study? When discussing an all meat diet, I’ve heard The China Study brought up numerous times. I wouldn’t say all of the science in it is bad, Read More

Zero Carb – The Carnivore Diet

So I’m onto the next stage of food weirdness. I’m on day 5 of only eating meat. What is the Zero Carb Diet? Literally, it’s people who only eat meat and animal products (this can include dairy). Obviously, it won’t include dairy for me. I still think dairy is evil. Some people have been doing this diet for 20 years. There are tribes that only eat meat as well (Inuit, Massai, etc.) How do they not get scurvy and vitamin Read More

How To Help With Reaction/Mood Symptoms

When I test out a food and it goes badly, or if I accidentally consume something that I react to, there are a number of things I can do that can ease the recovery. Infrared Saunaing – see my blog post. I’ll sauna every day, and if it’s a bad reaction, twice a day between days 8-13 (after the consumption of the food). I usually stop saunaing at about day 16. Activated Charcoal – if I know right away I’ve Read More

Infrared Saunaing – Basically The Greatest Thing Ever

When I react to something, I use an infrared sauna. I’m super lucky to have access to one. I would say it improves my mood by about 20%, as well as energy levels, and gets rid of the itching I get from these reactions as well. I sit in there for 30-40 minutes. I’m not sure if it’s removing the toxins that make me feel better, or if it does some sort of mitochondrial invigoration… Christine is my dad’s grad student Read More

Filtered Water

I used to scoff at filtered water, and I actually liked the taste of tap water better. I haven’t done much research into why you should drink filtered water but I can tell you from personal experience, it upsets my stomach. Even worse, I made a bunch of chicken broth when I was pregnant to freeze, and for the first batches, I used regular tap water in it. I figured because I was boiling it, it would get rid of Read More

Alcohol

The good news is, even though we are so sensitive to food, alcohol doesn’t seem to be a problem! Rejoice in small miracles. The bad news is its dependant on the type of alcohol.   Here are the ones that are okay: Whiskey (Bourbon and American Whiskey labeled “straight” whiskey. Most other whiskeys have caramel colouring made from burnt sugars.) Vodka – Make sure it’s unflavoured. Ciroc (original) is excellent. The above doesn’t make us react because they’ve been distilled so many Read More
