“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 than medication). They’ve treated pregnant women, infants, and breastfeeding women as well. They have found no ill effects of the diet (they call it paleolithic ketogenic, basically a fancy turn for a red meat diet).

Eventually North America will stop with the “it must be a placebo effect” and start actually treating people. Suuuuper exciting. Also extremely satisfying after years of “you’re crazy”. Extremely. Satisfying.

They have a website HERE. (It’s in Hungarian but you can use Google Translate). The case studies are incredible.

    The vegan food lobby and greens won’t like that. Great find.

    • vegan on August 29, 2018 at 3:48 pm

      We vegans would love to find scientific evidence when it comes to health. I don’t appeal to nature so if there’s something in a specific diet that makes it healthiest for all or certain amount of people then there must be mechanistic actions in the body which can be emulated with vegan products.

    Hi Mikhaila,
    I stumbled across this clinic through a youtube video a while ago and am seriously considering to get a treatment there. Let’s see if my health insurance goes along.
    I’m eating beef burger patties with eggs mostly since 4 weeks and got some benefits out of it:
    – better sleep!
    – more concentrated during the day
    – less pain in one of my big toes which has early arthritis

    The only thing that I have a really hard time with is sugary drinks. Not so much sweets like chocolate or so, but mostly with drinks where sugar and coffein are combined.
    I noticed that the sugar thing is also a huge emotional short time satisfier which makes it even more hard to get rid off. Did you experience something like that too?
    Do you have any tips for the (in my case) very extensive sugar cravings?

  13. Matt on August 29, 2018 at 9:41 pm

    This one in particular –

    The leaders of the investigation acknowledge and surprised the result. The research team conducted the study with 1,000 Australian women.

    Professor Felice Jacka, who led the Deakin University, Victoria study, said, “Originally, we thought the consumption of red meat was not necessarily beneficial to mental problems. It turned out that it was very much the case. ”

    “Women who consume less than half of the recommended amount of red meat have twice as often suffered from depression or anxiety with women who consume the recommended amount.”

    “When other factors were taken into account in comparison, such as socioeconomic status, physical activity level, smoking, weight and age, that relationship was still maintained.”

    “Interestingly, mental health did not depend on the consumption of any other protein. It did not depend, for example, on chicken, pigs, fish, or the consumption of plant proteins. In the study only 19 women were vegetarian. When we removed them from the statistics, the relationship was not changed either. ”

    According to Professor Jacka, the diet of animals in the pasture is also a key issue.

    Hi Mikhalia, I was just listening to your dad on Joe Rogan and he mentioned Arthritis. A while ago I saw a few youtube vids and articles on Boron / Borax and how its helped people. I don’t know if you’ve tried it but I thought it was worth mentioning.

  16. Ryan on August 30, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Honest question because I’m not familiar with the complete history of your plight, but have you had your vitamin d checked? I had similar but less severe experiences with many different foods suddenly in my 30s. I spent years looking into ways to find relief without success. Then I found some odd correlations with Vitamin D and allergies, food intolerance and depression though online research. And I’m also Canadian, and inside most of the time.

    After a couple of weeks of taking up to 10,000 IU (no joke) of Vitamin D soft-gels a day, my intolerance to things like beer went away and a rash I’ve had for 3 years started to heal.

    Preferred your side of the diet vs. exercise chat on Joe Rogan. 2000 calories from diet and maybe 350 calories from a long workout make the cause of obesity clear. The bad fats, clogged glands, high insulin and inflammation, moody gut bacteria, and allergic reactions make people not feel like exercise and perhaps even injured so they can’t.

  27. Andy on August 31, 2018 at 2:52 am

    After seeing the Joe Rogan podcast, I have a small question.
    I have a different kind of auto-immune issue, namely Psoriasis.
    While not on any medication for it, it does get treated with Methotrexate.

    Now, Psorisasis is supposed to be linked with obesity (guilty of that) and stress (guilty of that too).
    Now, i’m wondering if restricting my diet might help with this?
    Currently i eat pretty much everything, including grain prodcucts.

    • Sinay on September 2, 2018 at 1:56 pm

      Hey friend, I suffer from Psoriasis as well.
      I can tell you to that changing my diet did help me with my issues.
      I Cut out Dairy, Sugar (especially procced) and most grains. You should try going Keto (+ excercise) – You’ll see the change ASAP.
      But if it’s not gone completely I’d try Mikhaila’s way of cutting down to only Meat, then trying to adding stuff gradualy.
      Psoriasis is genetic, but diet can seriously change it’s severity.

      Hope you get well, treat yourself as if you’re helping someone else you care for.. with love and patience, and tough love if needed.

      Good luck!

  28. Christofer on August 31, 2018 at 3:37 am

    Hi Mikhaila. I listened to you talking about your health issues on Joe Rogans podcast, and as someone who’s experienced a similar journey and “tried everything” I’ll be arrogant enough to recommend you to look into Marek Doyle, Britain’s top metabolic nutritionist (www.marekdoyle.com). He is the most well-researched and methodical practitioner I’ve been able to find when it comes to solving riddles of the human organism, and working with him has been life-changing for myself as well as my wife (I was on an extremely restrictive elimination/ketogenic diet for 2,5 years, but could start eating much more liberally thanks to his recommendations)!

    You seem to be doing good now and have your own thing going, but unless you’d like to stay on such a restrictive diet going forward I’d be willing to bet you that Marek could help you further; there’s always an underlying culprit to your symptoms that can be – if not completely fixed – improved. The Carnivore diet is simply a good way to avoid your triggers and let the body start healing, but it won’t necessarily solve all the underlying metabolic/immune-dysfunctions. I’m speaking not as an expert on the issue but paraphrasing Marek (which is one of THE experts as far as I can tell). I know your dad is very keen on scientific evidence, and Marek is unparalleled in this regard.

    Feel free to ignore everything I just wrote, I myself am a person who hates when people gives advice like this, but in any case I wish you (and your dad) the best.

    i have been on the carnivore diet, well i do eat some eggs and cheese, for about 2 months and have felt great! yesterday i had some low carb candy and woke with lower back pain. i listened to you on rogan’s podcast and now i am sure it was the candy; one of the top ingredients was soy lecithin emulsifier. i thought i was treating myself for being so faithful to the diet. it was sugar free after all. wow midday and still have the back pain. thru the candy in the trash!

    • John Lobell on August 31, 2018 at 3:24 pm

      Most sugar free stuff, including candy, contain sugar alcohols, including xylitol and sorbitol, which are sugars.

      They call it not sugar because it is not sucrose (common table sugar), but it is really sugar.

  32. Derek on August 31, 2018 at 11:56 am

    Hello Friends. If you have a chronic illness do your own research! I have Multiple Sclerosis, crohns disease, Epilepsy, and Chronic Migraines. Each of these a has tons of research on how diet, lifestyle, and exercise impact the illness. Everyone on the internet is an “expert.” If you live with any degenerative chronic illness talk to your doc, do your research, try some stuff out, and find out what works for you. I live, eat, exercise a certain way and would never tell someone what to do. What I do works for me given my situation. Remember, “The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. – Carl Jung.”

  33. Nope Never on August 31, 2018 at 12:01 pm

    Saw you on Joe Rogan and can relate to your experience. I’d been suffering with a quick onset of gait issues and vertigo for a few years in my late twenties. Long story short I was diagnosed with gluten induced cerebellar ataxia and was told to eliminate the usual suspects (gluten, soy, corn, eggs, legumes, dairy, sugar, etc.) and this helped greatly. Though my gait issues had resolved, I was waking up everyday feeling as if my joints had been encased in cement and later came to realize nightshades were a huge contributor to this symptom.

    For a little over a year I was consuming a very red meat and fat heavy diet (collagen, coconut oil, etc.) but this was having a very negative impact on my bowel movements. Then I was introduced to the blood type diet (look into Dr. D’Adamo). I have a hunch that you may be a type O. From my understanding type Os produce a lot of acidity in their gut which allows them to breakdown meat proteins, whereas type As like myself lack the enzymes to process them effectively. When all is said and done, the most important thing is that you listen to your body.

    I’m glad to know there are people like you providing such an invaluable resource for others, thank you Mikhaila.

  34. Brooke Smith-Windsor on August 31, 2018 at 6:44 pm

    Watched your interview with Joe Rogan and was annoyed with the comment from some AGW Climate alarmist about methane. It seems that cows can also have positive results from a diet change. This article may give you some ammunition should you be accosted with more comments attacking you for your diet. Please continue your anecdotal study.

  35. Macarius on August 31, 2018 at 8:41 pm

    Fascia tissue. Ms. Peterson – mine has been super cramped for years from a 10 day antibiotic use nigh on three years ago. You might look into that for relief of your organs. All of my organs are inflamed to some degree because of it. Perhaps that will further you along to better health?

    Your problems sound like a mad mix of neural, muscular and chiropractic related stuff. Likely the antibiotics wrecked your body (on top of your health problems you were born with). If I were you, I’d call every single naturopath around you and see who’s got the right idea. I’ve experienced pain too. That’s why I’m sharing. On my own blog, I will be blogging about fascia tissue in the near future and why I think it’s a good place to go. I have other health related stuff on my blog. Maybe it’ll give you a direction to go in.

    Ketogenic sounds like a good diet for you though. Given how much stuff your body is allergic to suggests to me that your body is seriously inflamed (again, probably due to the heavy antibiotic use; that stuff’s basically cancer and other diseases in pill form). Healthy fats and oils (avocado with onion makes a good lunch, not gonna lie – just add salt), some meat.

  43. David Dumford on September 1, 2018 at 6:44 pm

    I saw you on Joe rogan and felt the need to to tell you about some things that have helped me. I have been through a similar situation caused by an herb called saw palmetto (a natural finasteride). Others have experienced the same thing with finasteride and ssri’s. If you google post finasteride syndrome (pfs), or pssd you will find other people in a similar situation. Even pot can cause these symptoms because of the high levels of cadmium.

    There are a lot of people working together to find a cure and basically we have learned that there will never be a one size fits all cure. That’s were trace elements inc. and analytical research comes in, two labs that give you a supplement recommendation based on a hair sample. Unlike blood test which is a snap shot of that moment, a hair test is a snap shot of what’s been going on in your body for the last three months.

    We are also working on a cure through electrolytes and hormones, but a hair test is the simplest and most successful so far

    I am having a lot of success with trace elements, and am close to being completely cured. I can’t believe this isnt common knowledge. I could go on and on but I will end it here. Hope this helps someone.

    • Rob on September 1, 2018 at 10:47 pm

      Hair analysis seems to be the best for determining metals (be very careful with chelation especially ‘challenges’ (to prove to doctors who think it’s psychosomatic and that rat poison kills rats but not people), as the d.m.p.s. challenge has made a lot of folks very unhappy it can move a toxin from a place where it’s not bothering you too much to one that really does. The Andy Cutler protocol seems very reasonable but that can use the caveats provided by Dr.William Walsh.
      Hair analysis is non invasive and has no down sides it’s like looking in the rear view mirror as it tells you what you were dumping 3-4 months ago (still better than blood or urine which can reflect only a short term status. Also understand that if you didn’t show any cadmium in your hair or in your blood or urine -that doesn’t mean that you aren’t toxic with cadmium. It turns out that folks suffering are the ones hanging onto their metals and they are not being released. and why these protocols have utility it turns out that getting the skinny on your toxin status is hard to do.

      David is offering good advice imo. David have you come across Thomas Janossy and oradix.com? Might find some very useful insights. (an aside: He quotes a large Swiss study that tracked some 25,000 people who had had chelation therapy and they tracked these people for quite a while and expected -given their ages and cancer rate that something like 7,500 should have died from cancer. Only to discover that only 1 died!! That is profound.

      There are some well versed folks out that what they do is they start with a hair analysis and then as suggested by what you are dumping they prescribe clean minerals -no fillers etc. and then since certain minerals can have the property of being agonists they can push other minerals out so retesting 4 months later and then by contrasting the 2 tests you can get a picture or suggestion of what your metal situation is. So then a new regemin of minerals are in order.

      Since the skin is the best detox organ (say this because pushing toxins out of the liver is like trying to move a golf ball around with your nose slow and tedious) if you feel better as Mikhaila does doing f.i.r. saunas -Joe didn’t understand that Rhonda Patrick was talking about heat and cold shock proteins not the toxin dumping effects that she was observing. (Loved your comment Mikhaila to Joe about studying the food pyramid!) Which is also why you want to towel off while in there so as to not re-absorb the toxins on your skin. This is the easiest and best way to dump metals, though may not be complete, without glutathione -s-transferase -#1 detoxifier of cells.

      The comments about cadmium and pot are very interesting I understand cigarettes are also high in cadmium. Smokers trying to quit should consider adding niacinamide B3 to their regimen as it is similar in some respects to nicotinamide.

      G.M.O.’s and round-up are giving heavy metals more access into the grains which is another reason to want to go 100% grass fed, especially since you are eating higher up the food chain. Mikhaila in your conversation with Joe Rogan you affirmed this by stating how you didn’t feel as good eating chicken. Since cattle are raised on pasture until they are either finished in a feed lot on the grains or in the case of 100% grassfed finished on grass. Means that they had access to grasses and forbs for much of their lives which is how the nutrition got in -not with these nutrient thieving g.m.o. grains (my generation (I’m the same age as your dad) can recall doing well on grains this was pre -gmo and latest hybridization and those grains came from mixed farms where the fields were in better shape -capable of delivering nutrients to the grain. Chicken being raised on the new improved ‘modern’ agri-horror show nonsense – g.m.o. grains have little to no minerals in it. It’s nutrient void! If you were to eat chicken raised on pasture and a natural diet -insect raised chicken with no gmo grain you would notice that you did better with it.

      • Jeff on September 2, 2018 at 4:26 pm

        Rob, agree on a hair tissue mineral analysis, but with a couple points of emphasis.

        1, Only two labs do the test without washing the hair – Analytical Research Labs, and Trace Elements. When hair is washed, a key mineral is washed out which screws up a key ration – I think it is potassium, but I can’t recall right now. Given that the sodium potassium membrane electrical potential is what drives nutrients into the cell and “exhaust” out of the cell, getting potassium correct is absolutely critical.

        2. The results have to be correctly interpreted. For example, if the body is storing excess unbound copper, it might not show up as excreting on hair tissue mineral analysis. In other words, a low copper reading could be an indication of high unbound toxic copper storage in the body.

        • Rob on September 2, 2018 at 6:09 pm

          Thanks Jeff
          Regarding your first point. Sounds like something to research. Probably potassium. We almost never suffer a shortage of sodium unless you are on a keto / paleo / carnivore type diet. We source real salt -mined vs synthetic which lacks the trace minerals and has been cut.

          Long term detoxing from sweating in the f.i.r. saunas (understand that 17 times more toxins were found in the sweat vs a regular sauna) and diet will help. Unless you are suffering from excessive metals or other toxins that require methylation or chelation to get out. Finding people who really know this subject is a challenge there are armies of folks willing to experiment on you. So would think that self education is required.

          W/r/t your second point – I made that observation in my second paragraph (above), no harm in re-stating that observation which emphasizes the reality that this will take time and realistically more than a few tests spaced over a year.

          G.S.H. (lipospheric) is a good idea. You can make it yourself generally for a fraction of the cost that some are trying to do. Check out some of my earlier comments in other threads of Mikhaila’s for more suggestions if so inclined.

          • David Dumford on September 2, 2018 at 10:12 pm

            Thanks for your comment Jeff and Rob, a lot of good points. The great thing about a hair test from tei and arl is that they have fine tuned the process. They give you recommend supps from a computer program based on your hair. A lot of work has gone into this. Like jeff said low copper can actually represent copper over load but the computer program can recognize this based on other minerals and ratios. It’s not 100% but it’s the best we have so far.

            You can tell a lot more from a hair test than just heavy metal toxicity. Minerals are the precursors to hormones. It’s really complex but copper is basically estrogen, zinc is testosterone, iron is dht, potassium is progesterone and cortisol, soduim is adrenaline, and so on. Mineral balancing is a very powerful tool.

            The biggest problem I see from people getting hair test is they try to interpret themselves and come up with there own protocol. Just take what is recommended by tei or arl.

            The biggest issues with gmo’s are they have been created with no natural defense so they are low in glutothion and other antioxidants. Glutothion is the main detoxers in the body and if if that process is impaired and you can’t recycle it in the body you get all kinds of issues.

            Hi Adam,

            For some reason I can’t reply below you so I am putting it here.

            Sorry to here about your situation, I know what you are going through. Basically a trace elements hair test and take there recommended supplements is the best thing you can do.

            You can contact me at dumford6@protonmail.com
            If you have more questions.

          • Jeff on September 3, 2018 at 6:27 pm

            Hi Rob,

            It sounds like your survey of the relevant information has led to many of the same conclusions as mine.

            I would like to throw out a couple ideas that may have been brought up before.

            1. The parasympathetic nervous system should be engaged when eating. It is the rest, digest, regenerate part of the autonomic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is the fight or flight (no time to efficiently digest) part of the autonomic nervous system. Maybe some light relaxation, meditation, and deep breathing are in order before eating.

            2. Avoid diluting your digestive enzymes during a meal. I drink my spring water about 20 minutes before a meal and then wait about 2 hours after a meal to drink again. Waiters and waitresses react like I must be an alien. Details matter – and this is actually a big detail.

            Which brings up a question – are people with this condition just drinking water?

            3. Chew, chew, chew. I watched a video that described how the body had to deal with undigested food. It sounded pretty bad. Whether it is actually that bad or not, the bottom line is that it makes sense to chew, chew, chew. It has been said that we should try to drink our food and chew our liquids.

            PS – Regarding DIY liposomes, I’ll post this instruction set geared towards vitamin C (ascorbic acid). I’m sure it can be applied to glutathione as well. One of these days, I plan to make liposomal whole food vitamin C complex (not just the ascorbic acid shell).

    Do you have any comments on Ayurveda?

    • Jeff on September 3, 2018 at 6:33 pm


      My approach to trying to figure out how to optimize human wellness is to do a survey of a number of different source, identify which approaches seem to make the most sense, and then try them out. Ayurveda is one of the oldest wellness paradigms out there, no? It also covers an awful lot.

      Do you have experience with its concepts that you can share?

      • Rob on September 3, 2018 at 8:41 pm

        Replying to Jeff
        Some reason can’t reply just below his comment. Anyway one of the reasons
        that I like Oradix.com and their tox/detox is that you get a much higher dose of glutathione while sleeping which means you are in parasympathetic mode.
        My son had a profoundly positive response with it.

        The ultrasonic jewelry cleaners work but also Tony P has done some Utoob vids on how to do it. copy and paste into their search: ‘herbs + beadworks liposomes’

        Digestion is huge one caveat aside from chewing which is smart is to avoid any carbonated drinks of any kind as the carbonation interferes with your stomach acid. Think fast food meals -they all have pop. It should be illegal but I digress.

    Anybody experiencing a rash when on a very low carb diet?

  46. Michael Hjulskov on September 3, 2018 at 4:20 am

    Thank you for sharing your story. I have some of the same symptoms as you. But in earlier state and I’ve been living super healthy for years. I really consider trying your diet.but I believe I can cure myself but don’t know how, yet.

    I also suspect a mobile/cell antenna within 150m of my house. And I suspect our local water is polluted. And I suspect heavy metal poisoning, parasites, tick, vaccines and antibiotics.

    Many years ago I had a whip lash but I found an alternative treatment/therapy called cranio sacral that help me with that. I also suspect that to be root cause.

    I don’t use the health care system at all, doctors etc. cause i don’t find them to be helpful or professional.

    I’m curious, did you get tested for heavy metal poisonings?
    Do you live near a mobile/cell antenna?
    Do your house or a nabourgh house have electric sunpanels?
    Did you try moving to a remote place where there’s no wifi etc for some weeks/months to see if that changed anything?

    I have an advise. Get your psoas muscles released. Find a therapist that know how to release psoas.

    Again thanks

    Michael from Denmark

    • Rob on September 3, 2018 at 5:21 pm

      Hi Michael
      Something that may help you is to learn about Magda Havas she’s a prof at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. She has been warning about the real dangers of wifi, smart meters and cell phones. Inverters from solar panels, ground electricity, and
      the higher frequencies riding on the hydro lines negatively affect us. It’s been observed that Amish have much lower rates of diabetes which is in part or full a function of the lack of hydro in their homes. When you current through a wire it generates an invisible field along the length of the wire. Throw out your microwave! Or do we take the argument that the Swiss and Russian scientists don’t know their stuff. Also suggest
      switching all fluorescent lights with non dimmable leds. (my trifield meter shows that dimmable led create the fields. Bee’s do not like these fields and will avoid them. The bee problems disappear for the most part when they go up north far from the madding crowd. The saturation of fields will imo ultimately make cities unlivable.

      In Wisconsin in the U.S. farmers noted that their dairy cattle were jittery and producing much less milk. They discovered that in North America anyway that when the demands for hydro power increased (we use a system called 3 wire Edison) the return wire (+ 2-115 volts wires = 3) would have had to be increased in size to carry the increased amperage back to the substations and so to save $ they put a wire from the transformer ( that steps the voltage down -Tesla’s solution to line loss) to the ground and use the ground to return the unused voltage back to the substation. This means that there is a continual a.c. voltage can be up to about 4-5 volts in places traveling through the ground. The dairy cattle their drinking bowls are metal and since electricity
      travels the path of least resistance it would go into the bowel and through them to ground.

      Dirty electricity is real, genetically modified foods are increasing peoples exposure and increasing the levels of heavy metals in them. Fluoride allows heavy metals to cross the blood brain barrier where you become then a better antenna.

      There’s a great company called Stetzerelectric.com that makes filters that lower these fields in the house. People who are sensitive to the fields find that if they get out of the city and go into the woods / or fields that they feel much better. Using the stetzer filters if they get the numbers down on the Stetzer tester which is essentially a tuned oscilloscope will show you your exposure levels. I have found that we feel much better when the numbers are lower or even when the power goes out.

      An p.k,d. diet will change whether you run on sugar or whether you run on ketones.
      Ketones are a choice fuel for the brain and help to limit your exposure to a bunch of poisons. A Jen dah twenny 1 -feel the love!

      hope this helps.

  47. Melanie on September 3, 2018 at 5:48 am

    Hi Mikhaila,
    I am not really sure if these comments are seen by you directly but I love the JRE and am watching your episode as I lay wide awake for what will be the 5th night of some brutal insomnia. No stranger to it, at all, but familiarity doesn’t take away the discomfort and aggravation. Your episode is really something because it is one of those funny almost paranormal coincidences where something is happening in your thoughts and then magically these thoughts are manifested into something tangible that almost points your life in that direction. What I mean is, I am rounding the corner to 30, a single mom of a young son, and a person with the most complicated, multi-systemic, open-ended, multi-faceted, unsolved health history. I came out of the womb with eczema covering my body, it was quite unusual and rarely seen in newborns. I’ve been at finding out what’s wrong on and off for my entire life. I do feel scared my health problems will take my life away from me. I have had a really sad and what seems like a losing battle with depression and in the last 2 years anxiety. I’ve gotten fed up here…like in the last 3 weeks, really 3 months, but game changing frustration has bit me in the ass for 3 weeks. I’m so sick and so sad. I can’t do this! My life is not a life. The ONLY thing I haven’t tried is diet. Seems stupid of me now. I recently found out I have the MTHFR mutation along with many others including one related to Vitamin D. Your descriptions of your experiences mirror mine except for the arthritis. After going through one of my phases where I get a fire under my ass and start seeing every type of medical professional all over again to attempt to find answers, I was left with one of the most fascinating results I have seen from all my different tests. This was in 2011, I gave up after this because I didn’t know what the hell to do. So I was seeing a brand-new gastroenterologist and he wanted to do allergy testing with foods because we were talking about my allergy(outdoor/indoor) history and how insanely severe it was as a child. We did one basic panel and it was a skin test. I lit up like a fucking bingo card. Here’s where it gets weird. The doctor was like whoa you’re positive on a 3/4 scale for every food, I’m sending you to get allergy tested in your blood. So I did. All negative. Every single one. When I asked well what do I do, what does that mean, the doctor told me it means you don’t have allergies. And I said don’t have allergies, then why did my skin test react like that, she said “I don’t know but you don’t have allergies.” For some reason I got really pissed off by it and gave up on the medical route once again. I can’t sit and tell you everything over a comment. I already am all over the place here because there is SO much and because I am exhausted. I don’t want to be a pest. I’m sure this is annoying by itself and probably gets old to have people telling you all their problems like Dr. Phil. I’m just at my end here. I can’t do this anymore. I can’t even keep up with my son and I’m 110 pounds. I’ve been on a slew of antidepressants and other psych meds to treat my fucking horrific depression. In my fury these leading weeks I looked down at my prescription pill box, yeah box, and I said yeah, no I’m not taking this shit anymore. And I remember saying out loud, I have to heal my brain. So I stopped taking the ones safe to stop abruptly, did the same with some not safe to stop abruptly, and all I have left is gabapentin for pain and anxiety and a blood pressure med for sleep. But those are going to. The physical withdrawal was a surprise in which I hope the worst is over. But the mental…it could last a long time. My neurotransmitters may take 2 years to self regulate. I need to work faster than that. I have to heal my brain and my body and my life. I am so unhappy and I really am not living at all. I know the answer is in diet. I’ve known it was significant but do not know what to do or how. With my health history, how the fuck do I take ALL of those ailments into consideration and change my life by chewing shit?! Not actual shit, like food. Anyway, I don’t know. I’m so miserable coming off these meds I am barely eating. I smoke weed, drink a fuck ton of water, and cry. Haha! Hmm at least it made me laugh to say. The point is, I don’t know who you are I’ll be honest. I plan to do some research after this. I don’t know if you’re really famous and hard to get ahold of. I don’t even know if you can get ahold of people with any notoriety. But, I would really like to talk to you. I would. I think you can help me. And I’m not saying you can be the one to change my life, no I am. It’s just, I have never listened to anybody talk, ever, where I was filled with overwhelming emotion because you sounded like me. There’s someone like me. And this someone figured out how to help themselves through this funky diet that may not be right for me but it might not be wrong. I’m really desperate. I’m a college-educated woman with a young son and I lay in bed every chance I can, every single day. I have laid in the bed for years. Years. And I just really, really want to wake up.


    • Kenn Macd on September 3, 2018 at 10:03 am

      Your life sounds rough and rocky and your son a talisman of hope. I don’t know if I would have gone off the meds like that, but I’m not you in your situation. Mikhaila does do consultations, where she just talks to people (by her own description) https://mikhailapeterson.com/consultations/ You could just start eating beef, salt, and water also. Could you tell us what your diet is at the moment?

    • Spartacus on September 3, 2018 at 11:54 am

      Hi, Melanie! An all-meat diet will help you tremendously. There are lots of Facebook groups like Zeroing In On Health, World Carnivore Tribe, Zero Carb Health, and others who will all help you make the transition. Best of luck.

    • Naomi on September 4, 2018 at 1:27 am

      Melanie, I’m so glad you heard Mikhaila on Joe’s podcast and that you wrote here. Hang in there! You absolutely can get better. The answer, as you now know, isn’t with conventional medicine, and it isn’t with pharmaceuticals. But there are answers, and this community can help you. Definitely check out the sites Spartacus mentioned, below, and I’d also recommend Dr. Kelly Brogan’s book, A Mind of Your Own. She doesn’t recommend zero carb, but there’s lots of other great information in her book, and depending on what your diet looks like now, her dietary approach could help. And if it doesn’t, the zero carb diet that Mikhaila is following has had almost miraculous results for many people who have been very sick for a long time. You can get better! Good luck!

  48. Robinson on September 3, 2018 at 11:05 am

    > Also extremely satisfying after years of “you’re crazy”.

    I’m willing to give this diet a go. I’ll share symptoms/results if it works. Somebody please find me somewhere I can buy clean Jerky in the UK though. Seriously! All the stuff I see is full of crap/marinade.

      I had no diarrhea but just feeling gross and sick when would eat too much fatty food right after eating carbs. However the stuff that was coming out of your bowels for 2 weeks was unreal and scary how much Crap and gunk is really stuck in your intestines.

  50. Michael on September 3, 2018 at 8:26 pm

    Hi, you drink Sparkling water, is it just sparkling water or mineral sparkling water?

    • Jeff on September 3, 2018 at 8:40 pm

      Michael, I would prefer to drink a spring water with a heavy weighting towards magnesium, but I haven’t found an affordable one. As it stands, I buy Crystal Geyser by the gallon jug because the amount of calcium and magnesium are both quite low and calcium is not able to overwhelm magnesium through my drinking water. I’d like a better alternative, but I’m not about to pay $1/10 ozs. when I drink almost 100 ozs. of water a day.

      I do avoid the fluoride and chlorine magnesium binders found in most tap water, not to mention the plethora of drug residues they don’t test for. They know they can’t find that for which they don’t test.

      I do dislike the plastic. Dr. Wilson (Nutrition Balancing) says it isn’t a problem when it comes to balancing out the body’s key cellular nutrients, but I think it is bad and would prefer to avoid it. I have a couple glass 5 gallon jugs I could fill with Carlsbad Spring water, but my potassium, as well as the potassium of a friend, crashed while drinking it. That’s not good. However, there is the possibility it isn’t causal. I’m not going to risk it right now. Maybe I’ll test it out later.

      Hydration is a key to optimal wellness, IMHO.

      I also ozonate and drink about 16 ozs. of distilled water every day.

    • Jeroen on September 4, 2018 at 1:51 pm

      I just buy store brand sparkling water. Cheap, tastes just like the expensive stuff, and doesn’t leave you feeling guilty about just having downed $5 in a single drink.

  51. Jef on September 3, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    Has anybody with severe allergic reactions to basic food items ever tried to ozonate and drink chilled distilled water?

    If so, where there any apparent notable effects?

    • Jeroen on September 4, 2018 at 1:46 pm

      I wouldn’t advise drinking distilled water. While not harmful in small quantities, it can cause stomach upset because of its different acidity to regular water.

      It also tastes bad.

      • Kenn Macd on September 4, 2018 at 4:20 pm

        I add a half teaspoon of Sodium Bicarbonate, or Potassium Bicarbonate to my distilled water to get the pH above neutral (or at neutral) plus it gives me sodium and pottasium, useful on a LCHF/carnivore diet.

        • Kenn Macd on September 4, 2018 at 4:21 pm

          I should add that I add these Bicarbonates to 2 litre jars of distilled water.

      • Leoncio Madruga on September 27, 2018 at 7:36 pm

        I drink only distilled water for one year now. It tastes very good! No upset at all.

    • Irina on September 10, 2018 at 8:40 pm

      We have an ozonater and drink ozonated distilled water regularly. It’s amazing. It stops a cold in its tracks, helps my teeth, and may other things. I know the extra oxygen molecule helps with getting rid of anaerobic diseases, so results for food allergies may depend on the reason they are happening? Unsure a bit on that. But I love it for energy, viruses/ bacterial/ mouth health.

  52. Jeff on September 5, 2018 at 12:27 am

    Jeroen, I only drink distilled water when I ozonate water – and it is pretty much a requirement when ozonating water because the ozone will tend to react with anything else in the water.

    Kenn, just make sure you don’t drink that pH increasing water during meals. You don’t want to dilute your stomach acid.

    • Kenn Macd on September 5, 2018 at 12:00 pm

      Yep, I tend not to drink water around meals, since I only usually eat one meal a day, it’s not a problem. I also ozonate my distilled water, and I don’t add any bicarbonate to that water.I also take Betaine, or drink Apple Cidre Vinegar before meals

  53. Gregory Jantzen on September 12, 2018 at 8:58 pm

    I don’t agree with the no veggies part. There’s evidence, I can’t remember where I saw the study, but some of our ancestors use to eat a TON of vegetables a day. Fiber is pretty huge in some cases. Also, the longest lived culture eats a ton of complex carbs, mainly brown rice, plantains and bit of fish meat. The modern diet most closely related to that tribes diet(I forget the tribes name) is the Okinawan diet. The most long lived peoples in the world. So I think there’s more than one way to skin a cat. But it could be people like me, and many other people born since fast food and pollutants took off, is our nervous systems got messed up from the pollutants and diet that our mother’s took in while pregnant with us, so for some reason we just have this low grade inflammatory response to grains or other foods that would otherwise be non offensive, non inflammatory. I felt amazing eating the keto diet, but I also felt amazing eating nothing but rice, lean meat, and fruit. As soon as I have dairy, eggs, wheat, artificial flavors an ingredients I feel lousy. But keto I believe did take care of my tics and social anxiety better. It led to a feeling of euphoria. I’m going to get back on it starting tonight. Meat and veggies all the way! I wish I didn’t have reactions to cheese though. I love cheese:(

    • Paula Nedved on September 26, 2018 at 1:17 pm

    • Rob on October 4, 2018 at 4:52 pm

      The problem seems to me to be lacking the insight about food quality. Our food system is yielding now such terrible food from a nutritional point of view that big pharma is expecting major profits ahead as people falsely believe that their ‘disease’ = a shortage of a drug to treat symptoms while unwilling to grow or buy good tasting produce.
      The price of food is subsidized and only those who produce crap get the free money.
      So buy garbage and expect illness. It’s not a conspiracy theory it has been known as fact for millenia!
      The plant secondary metabolites (p.s.m.s) are missing from poor plant nutrition. Those p.s.m.’s include immune supporting nutrients that mediate immune response in us.

      I can buy apples at the store and my cows won’t eat them period. But they eat all the apples off the trees growing that are not sprayed naturalnews.com reports that 80% of apples (and other fruits) are sprayed: “The chemical is called diphenylamine. It is an artificial preservative that makes the fruits look fresher than they really are. It is also toxic to human health.” Why do they need to spray them? Because they lack the nutrients needed from the soil that are either there but unavailable to the plant / tree because of the farming method that places a ceiling on nutrition and ensuring illness and short life span to say nothing of poor taste!

      My cows (all cows really : ) ) can tell the difference.

  54. Viktor Suomi on September 16, 2018 at 4:36 am

  55. Ingrid Khadijah on September 19, 2018 at 12:37 am

    Wow, I knew in the back of my mind that the vegan rush was a bad idea… even 10+ years ago, I was hearing of mental health issues, a lot of just general health issues. Now the more I look into this the more I’m convinced that this can help a lot of people getting thrown for a loop with all these do this and that food trends.

    I’m mighty interested to see more studies done, but I feel that they will be like pulling teeth, because it will crush the every day BS being told to everyone. There is a Dr. Leonard Coldwell who I like who said in a seminar once… if everyone is told to go one way go the way they are not and most times you’ll be safer for doing so.

    Be it he is totally on board with this or not, it’s a great way to consider living life now days,

  56. Eugene on September 23, 2018 at 4:15 am

    I can believe the idea that vegetables seem kind of unnatural to eat, but most fruit seems fine to me. I recently read that vegetables have undergone for more changes in the last few thousand years than fruit. There are exceptions, of course. Bananas used to be as hard as plantains. Apples used to all be like as small, hard, and sour as crab apples. But if you look at the evolution of vegetables it turns really strange.

    Personally I’m eating Fish, Beef, and berries (safest of the fruits I think).
    Chicken makes my nose run, which tells me I’m having a histamine reaction.

  57. Rob on September 23, 2018 at 11:36 am

    Eugene you bring up an important point that deserves consideration about what assumptions underpin our decisions about diet.
    The principle change in our food has nothing to do with ‘evolution’. Hybridization of seeds puts a ceiling on the nutritional density of our foods which at the same time creates a vector for disease and insect predation which were/are useful to corporate and other interests. (this is to say nothing of genetic modification and eating foods procured from growing food in a way that precludes nutrients from entering into the plants or eating the meat from animals eating those foods.
    Meat is delivering access to those essential nutrients. This is why since most pork and chicken is raised exclusively on nutrient empty grains is why folks to feel good eating those meats. Cattle sheep and goats have all had access to grass and when done right they create topsoil by enabling the bacteria to convert the rocks and organic matter into soil.
    Faulty assumptions as the internet is exposing us to crystalizes in our minds the realization that our culture is founded on lies and half truths.

    Can’t have information about actually fixing health problems instead of medicating them floating around! This would prove financially detrimental to Big Pharma and the ad-filled magazines circulated to encourage unhealthy lifestyles so as to mass produce a “sick” population who require more and more of their product. Truth is: they want you sick.

    One of the scariest things to emerge out of Vegan Culture = SoyBoys who seem violently possessed by an authoritarian Hall Monitor for the World mentality, with all the anger and none of the muscle to back it up.

    I was google translating the website then I found up the top there are flags to change the language. Better than going back and forth! ?

    Sorry but it’s only a 4-week observations. All studies about long-term saturated fats and red meat eating point its harmful effects. It’s not even a study – there are no statistic methods listed.

      Link one study here please that links red meat to harming health. Literally find one (that doesn’t include dairy, because dairy and meat are not the same thing.)

        Love your blog. And the taste of beef. But since you asked, and nobody answered, I was curious and just found this, fwiw: Published last week on behalf of the European Society of Cardiology. https://academic.oup.com/eurheartj/advance-article-abstract/doi/10.1093/eurheartj/ehy799/5232723?redirectedFrom=fulltext

          I read the study, and the protein content of the diet is only 25%. Protein content could be red meat, white meat or non-meat(dairy? tofu? beans?) There is no listing that I could see as to what sort of diet this was. That is a huge confounding factor because the rest of the diet could be crap/processed food. In Mikhailas context it would be more useful to see studies of carnivore diets. The study has not yet been published so details are scant

            I just read the study again. 1. The link states: “Published: 10 December 2018” 2. The protein sources fed to three distinct groups were clearly defined as red meat, white meat, OR non-meat protein: “…three 4-week isocaloric diets (with washout period between each) were evaluated (all meals prepared in metabolic kitchen with 25% calories from protein) to examine the effects of red meat, white meat, or non-meat protein…”

            3. There is indeed a mention as to the sort of diet,”…4-week isocaloric diets (with washout period between each)… “

          If you click on the link to the actual study https://doi.org/10.1093/eurheartj/ehy799 then it comes up as “Production in progress” so no further information is available until that process is finished. Technically you are correct, it is published, actually though it is not published until you can read it. As it is we only have an abstract, which has scant detail on the components of the diet for example. As to the sort of diet, if you were to ask someone what sort of diet they were on and they said it was an isocaloric diet with 25% protein, what would you know about the diet? Would you know how much fat, or carbohydrates they were eating? Is that unimportant or important information?
          Thanks for finding the study, I look forward to reading it when the details are released.

            You’re welcome.

    can you handle magnesium citrate ?

      Yep! As long as it’s pure
