Objectively tracking RA symptoms on a carnivore diet

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.

Feeling Better Every Month

I´m a 30 year old male, I had all kind of health issues in my life. Asthma and polen- allergy, a tendency to injuries and cancer when I was 16. In the last few years I had problems with stiff joints, my circulation, depression and anxiety. Anxiety and a tendency to depression is also a life long issue for me.

Meat: proof it’s the real super food

I’m mid fifties female. Overweight, prediabetic, fatty liver, severe spinal stenosis which leads to many other problems such as chronic debilitating pain, lack of sleep (which opens the door to even more problems: brain fog, cognitive function, etc…) Have tried to eat vegetarian, raw. Through this I found an intolerance to many veggies, fruits, grains, beans, and legumes.

How Low Carb Is Saving My Life

I am a 29 year old male. Growing up, my family was extremely poor. I had a steady diet of boxed/frozen dinners, sodas and sugary snacks. I have suffered from anxiety since I was very young. Depression has also been a huge problem for me for the last decade. Just a year and a half ago, I was over weight, over worked, and over stressed. I was on a path back to the mental hospital for the second time. (First time was a self check in for wanting to hurt myself.) After that I was put on a daily dose of Prozac for my anxiety. I got fired from my job, and developed a strong dependency on marijuana to numb the pain of my problems.

Ankylosing Spondylitis and Zero Carb/Carnivore Diet

This is written by Jordan Gold. He contacted me through Instagram (goldjor) a bit less than a month ago and skeptically started the carnivore diet. This testimonial really made me happy. Ankylosing spondylitis is very similar to what I have except it causes arthritis in the spine (among other joints). It’s horrible. Anyway, Jordan emailed me the following: “Mikhaila! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m a 26 year old male with Ankylosing Spondylitis who discovered your diet at the peak Read More
