In an exclusive sit-down with Arabian Business, the outspoken podcaster and daughter of controversial Canadian academic Jordan Peterson tells a remarkable story of self-healing through diet.

It’s the kind of story that the Arabian Business “resilience” section, which we introduced late in 2020, was designed to tell. On an exclusive podcast, Mikhaila Peterson charts her extraordinary story of how she decided to deal with 20-plus years of chronic health issues by bypassing the medical profession altogether, undertaking a journey of self-diagnosis that has resulted in meat-only diet and a bucketful of mental fortitude.

Mikhaila Peterson (@mikhailapeterson Instagram) is a 28 year old mother, CEO, health influencer, writer and founder of the Lion Diet, from Toronto, Canada. She has put her idiopathic juvenile arthritis, severe depression (bipolar type II), and chronic fatigue (among other ailments) into remission using The Lion Diet - a beef, salt and water elimination diet. Although it may seem unorthodox, she’s thrived on it for over 2 years. Also recognized for her work with her father, Dr. Jordan B. Peterson (Canadian psychologist and author), she encourages others to take responsibility for every part of their physical and mental health, and teaches how to dramatically transform one's life by never giving up on yourself.
