Hemorrhoids

Soooooo I didn’t really want to write this because, well, duh. But I’m going to anyway. Hemorrhoids are basically swollen veins that can protrude outside of your anus. They are not sexy. They are not comfortable. They suck. They’re also extremely common during pregnancy. I believe this is because people seem to get more sensitive to what they’re eating during pregnancy. (Not surprising considering your body is going through so many changes and you’re protecting the little one inside you. Read More

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 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

Debunked – The “Healthy” Low Cholesterol Myth

“I can’t eat meat, my cholesterol goes up!” “I’m on statins to lower my cholesterol levels. I’m supposed to avoid eating fats.” “Eating fat increases your risk of heart disease.” Nope. First off, here’s a short background on cholesterol: What is cholesterol? First, let’s discuss lipoproteins. A lipoprotein is basically a regular cell membrane mixed with different types of proteins (apolipoproteins). Lipoproteins transport different fat-soluble substances (including fat-soluble vitamins, cholesterol, and triglycerides) in the bloodstream. Cholesterol is a fatty substance carried Read More

The Meat Dilemma – But what about the animals?!

When I was 15 someone told me that someone they knew lived near a slaughterhouse and a pig farm. The slaughterhouse would come pick up the pigs every 2 weeks. Apparently, the pigs would start screaming the night before, because they knew they were going somewhere bad. Now that story is probably completely false, but it hit a nerve. I researched what kind of intelligence pigs had and decided to stop eating pork. I haven’t eaten pork since I was Read More
