WHERE IS ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT CARNIVORE DIET?
CAN A HYDROGEN WATER 90 DAY FAT MEAT DIET SAVE YOUR LIFE?
DO YOU WANT CARNIVORE DIET SCIENCE? THIS POST IS ABOUT THE SCIENCE!
PLEASE START WITH THIS VIDEO?
Is going all row crops - or plant based - no beef, going to save the planet?
The following video is by Dr. Shawn Baker, (MD). Shawn is one of the pioneers of the carnivore diet and has personally been on the diet for about 2 years.
There is a very much deeper video about sustainability near the end of this post, as well.
What are we saying here?
If we were suffering from cancer, heart disease or any autoimmune disease:
For a 90 day period, we would only eat animal fat, eggs, meat and organ meat. We would drink hydrogen water morning and evening, and low deuterium water in between.
We would - (depending on what the problem was) – we would also do the Rick Simpson Oil 90 day protocol. If you don’t know what RSO is, we’ll tell you at the end of this post.
Does your doctor or health professional say, "meat is bad?"
If you are following your doctor’s orders – if you are eating a lot vegetables and fruit, and very limited amounts meat, and you’re sick, we are asking you to open your mind for the relatively short time it will take for you to review this post and watch a few videos.
Your life may depend upon it
Why listen to someone who is not a doctor?
Okay - we agree - don't listen to us! There are MANY doctors who agree with everything on this post! This video just below is the second example. Georgia Ede is NOT "just a doctor" - she is a psychiatrist - that means she went through 8 YEARS of medical school AFTER 4 years of education for her BS degree - 12 years total of college!
A medical revolution is underway in America and in many parts of the world
The big pharmaceutical companies are coming under increased scrutiny by the public. More and more people on the street are realizing that big pharma may not have our best interest at heart.
At the same time, a growing army of doctors of all kinds, other health professionals, and ordinary citizens are taking their patient’s health and their own health into their own hands.
They are questioning many major areas of conventional medicine
This new attitude is growing fast thanks to the internet and especially You Tube.
Isn’t You Tube full snake oil and quack medicine?
Yes. There is a fair share of that. At the same time, others are discovering amazing supplements, protocols, methods, and treatments that actually work – and many of these are far more effective than patented pharmaceutical drugs being shoved at the public.
We believe that the best way to avoid the snake oil and quacks is to look at the science on any particular remedy.
If there is no science – be careful.
With this said, most medical doctors and scientist consider antidote or testimonial evidence absolutely worthless. We don’t feel that way.
A dog who drinks hydrogen water and pulls back from the edge of death, doesn’t know why he or she got better.
There are people that are honest about their health improvements and they are not selling anything. We suggest that you should give their testimony some weight – just use your own discernment at the same time.
You also must be careful with scientific studies. There are scientific studies that are corrupt. Big pharma is responsible for much of the corruption – the corrupt studies they fund. They corrupt the studies they need to corrupt - to sell the drugs. Statin drugs are a very clear example of this – but more on that here: “IS YOUR HEART ON HYDROGEN WATER OR STATIN?”
Why would we do a 90 day protocol consisting of a fat and meat diet, hydrogen water and low deuterium water if we were in trouble with our health?
The keto diet or ketosis or ketogenic diet is well known – it is all over You Tube and in the news. The fat and meat diet is the carnivore diet, which means zero carbohydrates and there is a lot of information on You Tube and in media about it as well. We’ll cover the carnivore diet in more depth in this post.
Hydrogen water is a fast growing and “trendy” drink with over 1,400 scientific studies showing it is valid. It is the "the thing" to drink in Hollywood. There are even hydrogen water bars in Hollywood! They get $3 to $5 for a glass of hydrogen water.
This website is dedicated to hydrogen water – and yes, we sell an ebook about it and how to make it at home for just 7 cents a serving. To find out more about H2 water, visit this page: "WHERE IS EVERYTHING ABOUT HYDROGEN WATER" on this website.
What is deuterium - does it sound like a rock band?
Deuterium is an isotope in water that screws with the mitochondria – the energy producing machine inside our cells. The vast majority of adults have way too much this stacked up their bodies, making many sluggish and open for diseases like cancer and on and on.
Lectins - is that a group of child abusers?
Lectins are nasty and we all are ingesting lectins in huge amounts – and we’ll cover lectins in depth in this post. Lectin are from plants.
Why does a carnivore diet work – doesn’t meat cause cancer and fat causes heart disease?
There is now a lot of evidence that meat does not cause cancer and that an all meat diet won’t screw you up – the opposite is true – people feel great and see their health improve - amazingly.
There is now ample evidence that animal fat does not collect in your arteries and cause heart disease. In fact, eating fat causes you to be easily satisfied and you’ll lose weight.
If you can suspend your life long belief that meat and fat are bad – for just the time it takes you review this post, we believe you’ll be happy you did.
Here is why the 90 day protocol works:
You have heard of elimination diets, right?
Well, that is essentially what a fatty meat diet is – but instead of eliminating one thing at a time to see what is making you ill - (which takes months – with unclear results) – you are eliminating everything except meat and fat.
When you’re on this super elimination diet, science now knows you’ll lower your deuterium levels, and your lectin levels, dramatically.
To understand how effective this can be, please watch Mikhaila Peterson tell her story – it is shocking and you’ll never forget it:
Do you think Mikhaila's story is just a freak thing?
When you’re on this super elimination diet, science now knows you’ll lower the amount problems and poisons you are now getting from eating plants, dramatically – this is a great compilation video showing a lot the poisons in plants:
Carnivore Diet: Why would it work? What about Nutrients and Fiber?
One of the leaders of the Carnivore Diet Movement is Dr. Shawn Baker, (MD) talks about getting started with carnivore. Please listen to Shawn, he is on this diet:
Dr. Ken Berry (MD) is a wonderful doctor and his personal story is an inspiration about how he went from a low carbohydrate diet to the ketogenic diet, to the carnivore diet and how things changed with each change in diet:
Remember, two of the reasons the carnivore diet is so effective is that you are reducing the pile of deuterium in your body, and the pile of lectin in your body . . .
Is a love of lectins letting you down?
Plants use lectins as a defense against animals and organisms that want to eat them. Feed a rat a diet containing a small amount of lectin, (about 1% of the diet) and 14 days later you have a dead rat.
In the 1970s less than 10 children ate some soaked raw kidney beans and got very sick. Some of kids ate only a few beans. This caused authorities to mandate a warning on the can – the beans must be cooked.
It also caused scientist to look into why the raw beans caused illness.
Lectins are a protein that binds to carbohydrates. Beans, for example are high in lectins, but so are many other plants.
Cooking lectin rich foods is not a total answer. Lectins can still cause trouble. They can crawl along the Vegas nerve and into the brain. It is now believed this may be the cause or a cause of Parkinson’s Disease.
Science is learning more and more how important the gut and associated components are in the fight to find the answer to autoimmune diseases – and that autoimmune diseases may find their start with leaky gut.
Lectins breach the one cell thick gut wall and allow all manner nasty stuff – including fecal waste, into the organ area of the body – and things get crazy from there.
“Data suggest dietary modification can improve clinical responses in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The goal of this study was to determine the efficacy of an autoimmune protocol diet in patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.”
Most of the participants had their bowel problems for almost 20 years. About three quarters of the study subjects were trying to get better utilizing biological therapy - monoclonal antibodies and that wasn’t working so much.
About 75% of the participants went into clinical remission in a matter of several weeks after changing their diet.
How fast can lectins get in the blood stream?
A study was done in which participants ate 200 grams of peanuts, (a high lectin content food) and in about an hour they had significant amounts of lectins in their blood – ready to raise hell all over the place.

Dr. Mason does great job of explaining lectins if you want to go deeper:
Deuterium and Chronic Disease – Phil Escott – WHIS 2018:
Where can you discover how to make your own low deuterium water?
Check out this post on this website: "HYDROGEN PLUS LOW DEUTERIUM WATER?"
Is eating meat the only way to reduce deuterium levels?
You can reduce deuterium by drinking deuterium depleted water - but it is expensive. However, you can make your own at home - and you can make hydrogen water with it. Please check out this post on this website: "HYDROGEN PLUS LOW DEUTERIUM WATER?" to discover other easy ways to lower your deuterium levels.
What about the cost of eating meat?
The average American spends $280 a month on food. What are they (you) actually getting for your money?
Green vegetables are very expensive when you think in terms of a pound. All you have to do is walk through the vegetable section of your grocery store and think:
“how much is that per pound?”
Now compare what you’re getting with a pound of beef brisket from Costco. Prices are going up on all food but in late 2019 brisket is $4.00 a pound.
It is a fatty cut, but when cooked right, it is delicious – including the fat.
Let’s say you got a big brisket. If you’re not too big a person, a pound a day will do you. $4 x 30 days = $120. If you’re a bit larger, maybe you’d eat 2 pounds a day or $8 x 30 = $320. $320 a month is not that much more than $280 a month.
We’re 65 and so when we were children, eating the fat was normal. I, more than Julie, just loved the fat on a Bar-B-Que steak.
We buy the brisket and either slow cook in on the BBQ for at least 12 hours or in the crock pot for about the same amount of time.
To BBQ a brisket like professional BBQ artist does takes some knowledge. You can learn how by watching You Tube videos.
Our son is great at it - so occasionally he'll cook the brisket.
When he's not available, we cut off the larger pieces of fat off the brisket and set it aside. We BBQ the brisket for 30 minutes and just to brown the outside.
Next, we cut it into smaller pieces, (because the original piece is about 15 pounds). This allows us to crock pot the brisket for about 12 hours on the low setting. We bag and freeze most of it.
Before we freeze it we fry the fat a bit for flavor, cut it up and add it back into the shredded brisket meat.
Like Dr. Baker said in the above video, you can make your diet what you want it to be, especially as you adapt to it.
Think about Mikhaila Peterson and her dad - they gradually got down to just meat and salt because their auto-immune diseases are that bad.
You may be able to get complete relief while eating meats of all kinds, some cheese, a little dairy and tons of butter and eggs. You can start with all of that and reduce it toward just meat, organ meats, and eggs, if you have not reached your health goals.
Once you gut seals or your cancer goes away, you'll want to stay as close to the above diet as you possibly can.
What about our Vegan FRIENDS?
Vegan versus carnivore is not a WAR!
Yes, it is possible to be healthy without any animal products in your mouth.

What about sustainability with meat - aren't row crops better?
Diana Rodgers might just change your mind in this video:
WHERE THE HELL IS THE LONG TERM SCIENCE
ABOUT THE CARNIVORE DIET?
Why aren't there studies being done about the carnivore diet?
The carnivore diet has not been around, in the U.S. for long. However, the Atkins diet was very similar and was popular in the 1990s.
The reason there are virtually no studies about the carnivore diet is because there is zero money in doing the studies - except for the meat industry - and there are carnivore diet leaders working on the meat industry to put up the money for studies.
A few scientist in Hungary - about 10 years ago - found old scientific studies on the original or "classic" ketogenic diet. Most of the studies were about stopping epileptic seizures.
These Hungarian scientist began by replicating the old studies they'd found. They did get some substantial results.
Eventually, they developed their own version of the paleolithic diet, based on what science believes is what our ancestors ate before humans domesticated animals and started farming. The Hungarian scientist call their diet PKD which stands for Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet.
How did they end up with the PKD?
The PKD is meat, eggs, organ meat and animal fat. No dairy or dairy products or vegetable oil is allowed. The fat to meat, (protein) ratio must be 2 to 1.
The Hungarian scientists came to this through years of careful research, including paying great attention to when human patients got results and when they didn't, (not from doing rat studies).
The Hungarian scientists have treated well over 1,000 patients while focusing on one thing: leaky gut. They believe, (with good reason) that leaky gut is responsible for virtually all autoimmune diseases. The only "tool" or medicine they use is their PKD diet.
How do they know if they are curing leaky gut?
They discovered a test for leaky gut that was used over 20 years ago to determine if a patient's gut was leaking and how much it was leaking.
This test they found in science archives, fell out of favor and faded away simply because the scientist working with the test back in the day, could not find a cure for leaky gut and they just gave up.
The Hungarian scientists resurrected the test - which required them to build a dedicated laboratory.
Did all their dedication pay off?
It did. The early ketogenic diet efforts to stop seizures in children got a 10% result - 1 in 10 got complete relief from seizures.
Today, with PKD diet - nearly 100% of the children get complete seizure relief.
Why the big difference from the keto diet to the PKD?
It is because the PKD (diet) does not allow any dairy, dairy products or any vegetables, vegetable oils or supplements containing the above.
Using the PKD diet, the Hungarian scientists are able to cure all sorts of bowel diseases, cancers, arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases.
What is wrong with what American carnivores eat?
In the American carnivore movement, there is great flexibility. For example, if you'd like to eat everything called meat - do it. If you like dairy - do it. If you want to use oils like MCT and other vegetable oils - do it. If you want a little bit of vegetables, do it.
What is the problem with the above?
Nothing, if you're just starting on the carnivore diet and you're not sick or dying with an autoimmune disease. Go for it and gradually narrow your diet to not include dairy products and vegetables or vegetable based oils, if you're unable to make your health goals with them in your diet.
What is wrong with dairy?
Dairy products and vegetables cause leaky gut, diabetes, thyroid disease, cancer, and more.
If you're sick, you need to dig deep and find the fortitude to follow the Hungarian PKD diet to the letter - for 90 days - and then you'll know what to do next.
You'll either be all better, on your way to all better or no better. We're betting on all better.
Is there video by the Hungarian group?
Zsofia Clemens is a PHD neurobiological doctor / scientist. She smart and dedicated.
Zsofia has a heavy Hungarian accent. We have posted her video just below - and below it is an exact transcription of what she said.
Please realize - it is very important to REALLY understand her talk because it could save your life or the life of someone you know.
We strongly suggest you watch Zsofia's video and then read the transcript, (please).
CarnivoryCon 2019: Dr. Zsófia Clemens — “Intestinal Permeability in Autoimmune Diseases and Cancer…
Full Title: “Intestinal Permeability in Autoimmune Diseases and Cancer: Measurement, Results, and Implications“ Dr. Clemens is a neurobiologist and clinical researcher specialising in nutrition.
TRANSCRIPT OF VIDEO
Dr. Zsófia Clemens is a neurobiologist and she's the director of the International Center for Medical Nutritional Intervention, which was formerly known as Paleo Medicina.
This is the only clinic in the world right now treating patients with a plant free diet. And so we're so excited to hear the experience that she can bring for us, so please welcome Dr. Clemens.
I would like to thank Amber for the invitation and I'm very honored to be here.
My presentation will cover intestinal permeability and the related issues.
So first of all, what is the intestinal permeability?
The intestinal permeability is first of all a membrane related issue phenomenon.
And membranes have dual basic functions.
And one of it is separating and the other one is connecting different spaces within our body, also within single cells and also within the single cells within single organelles.
So membranes can be found throughout the body at different levels. And they are very basic in determining many functions, physiological functions of the body.
Due to this dual function connecting and separating at the same time, membranes process correct characteristics of which is called selective permeability.
So they are not just permeable or nonpermeable, they are selectively permeable. And this function is brought about by cell junction structures and the most important and well known structure is a tight junction.
And the tight junctions are responding to a variety of food stimuli from our diet.
They're also responding to a variety of inflammation mediators in the body and also influenced by the pathogens. These tight junctions that are also highly dynamic.
They can change their function from one hour to another or even within our last space of time. Very importantly, tight junctions are motivated by a protein, which is called zonulin, which has been described by Alessio Fasano in 2000 as a big contribution to the field.
The next question is about what is the relationship between intestinal permeability and the autoimmune disease?
And what we know for sure that there is an association between the two.
Because elevated instance intestinal permeability has been described for a variety of autoimmune conditions including Crohn's disease, type one diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autism, and many more.
What we also know is that there is, there is a gradual association, which means that, for example, in Crohn's disease, more severe Chron's cases are associated with a higher level of intestinal permeability - but as we know, correlative studies do not allow for a distinction between cause and effect.
And therefore that has been a long discussion, speculations about which comes first, whether intestinal permeability is resulting in the autoimmune disease or the other way around.
So there was no way to establish this because only interventional studies are able to provide cue to this, but so far all the international studies that have been carried out fade in normalizing intestinal permeability.
[What she's saying: to date, studies are by default, letting the notion that holes in your intestines is a normal condition, become the norm!]
Here you can see the actual failed attempt to normalize intestinal permeability.
They include probiotics, prebiotics, fecal transplantation as well. And there are some dietary interventions. In the list you can see the paleo diet because in 2014 we had the study with, this was an international study with a paleo diet.
Which is actually a regular or a popular version of the paleo diet, which is also containing a large amounts of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and vegetable oils.
So this was a diet they used in this study and as in all previous studies with the paleo diet that they found that the paleo diet is beneficial in weight control, controlling glucose levels and many metabolic parameters.
But this diet was not able to normalize the intestinal permeability nor it was able to decrease inflammation level in the body.
There is a study from 2013, which asked the question whether it is time to treat intestinal permeability. Because we already know so much about intestinal permeability, [inaudible 00:05:36] data from animal research, and salt based research and so on.
We just do not know how to normalize it. And it is important because it has been hybridized in this article and many more articles that restoring the intestinal permeability would be the key to cure autoimmune diseases.
How do you measure intestinal permeability?
So these are the tests that have been used in humans including clinical practice as well as clinical studies. Firstly of the zonulin, which is the most well known measure.
Here you can also see the advantages and disadvantages. So the major disadvantage of his own zonulin test is that it is actually not a measurement, unlike any other measurements, this is a marker.
And second it is not a specific marker of intestinal permeability. Rather, it is an overall marker of membrane permeability overall in our body. But any way. It is very easy to perform it because it is just a simple laboratory test.
Then we have the lactulose monitor test, which is a so-called a differential sugar absorption test. Which means that the patient has to ingest a solution of two different sugars and one of the sugars is an absorbing sugar and the other one is non-absorbing, at least non-absorbing under normal conditions, and the ratio of the two as excrete in the urine is calculated to determine intestinal permeability.
The major disadvantage is these sugars interact with food items by two serum proteins and are degraded by the intestinal bacteria. So the end result is not very reliable.
Then we have the sucralose test, which is also associated with the same disadvantages. And here we have two radioactive tests like the ECole, which has been widely used 20 years ago.
The major disadvantage is the radioactivity itself, so dealing with radioactive compounds, always posing technical challenges. But at least they are not binding to serum proteins.
Then we have the last one, the PEG 400 tests, which is associated with more, most advantages and the least disadvantages. And this is the test that we are also using.
So what is the PEG 400 test?
It is a compound that is nontoxic in earth. It is not degraded by intestinal bacteria and the testing itself does not depending on the laboratory. So the patient can do the testing at home and then of course the measurement is relying on the laboratory.
But from the practical point of view, this is a huge advantage. Actually it only has one disadvantage and it is that the measurement is affected by the kidney function. So if there are problems with the membrane permeability within the kidney, then the end result may be affected.
The PEG 400 is containing a mixture of at least 11 different sizes of this PEG molecule. And the mixture of this has to be drank. it contains three grams of the bed. And there is a six hour urine recollection. And the percentage of each fraction of the pack excreted over six hours is calculated.
Is that test available to mere mortals?
Is that test available to every person over the counter?
Yes, of course.
In the United States?
No only with our laboratory. But as I told you, the tests can be sent through post, just the simple surface mail. So.
I can sell it if you want.
So this is how the the measurement result look like. So here we have the fractions with different molecular sizes. These are two measurements. And the here you can see the percentage of the excretion in the urine as compared to the original amount of the PEG. And with the dotted lines you can see the normal range indicated lower and upper level. And here are the individual measurements for the specific fractions.
But anyway, this was the first study. Then we have managed to provide direct evidence that we normalize intestinal permeability in a patient with a Crohn's disease and this is actually the first study in the whole literature with intestinal permeability being reversed.
Before you, forgive me, when you say PKD, you mean your version of paleo keto meaning no vegetables, nothing but meat and very specific, not the paleo mentioned earlier in the slide, that alum stuff, right?
Yes. I will come back to this later, but actually it is a diet, which is also paleolithic in the original sense of the word, meaning that it is based on animal meat and fat. And also ketogenic, so insures energy from ketones or fats.
So we do have many patients with Crohn's disease before who had normalized their condition. But this was a first Crohn's disease patient in whom intestinal permeability was measured.
And here you can see the first measurement. This was done at four months on the PKD and at this time the patient still had the gastrointestinal symptoms, slightly elevated inflammatory marker levers and overall less than optimal blood work.
And this has happened at the mass, you can see that the intestinal permeability went back to the normal range. And at this time the patient was already completely, completely symptom-free, had normalized inflammatory levels and his ultrasound for the first time came back negative.
What's the X axis?
X-axis? The weight.
Particle size, or?
This is, these are the molecular weights and this is the percentage of the recovery in the urine.
So to have a broader picture of the background, the clinical background. So this has happened before.
This patient has been taking several medicines medical combinations between 2013 and 2015 you can see the duration of the medications taken and she took everything that is possible to have in Crohn's disease.
At the end she also used formula feeding, but actually at the time point it was not possible to control for the pain, for the inflammation and surgery was decided on the part of his physicians.
And this was also the point where he decided to start a PKD in order to prevent and avoid surgery. As you can see here at the inflammation levels, CRP, ESR and they both went back to quite lower levels.
And so this is the published part of the study and they are often asked what has happened next. So a little bit of a follow up. We now have three years follow up and as you can see, inflammation levels are farther lowered as compared to the periods follow up.
The patient is still completely seizure symptom free and consistently has a normal ultrasound.
What is happening from outside. This is another patient also the Crohn's disease. So this is the transformation in pictures. This has happened in 11 months.
So these are the collaborations for the intestinal PERMA with the measurements. We have been measuring it in patients since 2015 and first we had a collaboration with the bio lab London, and they still have this collaboration.
But at a certain point we decided to follow the methodology and also wanted to follow the methodology and application areas including the measurement of other membranes. So we started another collaboration in addition with the technical university of Budapest, Hungary.
But unfortunately, last year the leader of the group, Dr. Peter Maris passed away and that's why we had to build a new collaboration and the new collaboration is now with the university of Debrecen, Department of Applied Chemistry.
This is just a little background that we now have three sets of data for the measurements and they are not necessarily that necessarily can be lumped together because of the methodological differences behind.
So this is for the first set of data, each line is corresponding a single measurement. Here you can see the normal ranges and we can do comparisons.
First of all, here we have the measurements down for those patients who have been following PKD and other diets. And just as something interesting in the other, any other diet group.
The highest intestinal permeability is corresponding to a patient who has been following a popular version of the paleo diet, which is generally regarded as being [inaudible 00:16:03].
Then the breakdown the PKD group farther according to diet duration. Here we have those who have been doing PKD for less than a week. Here those who have been doing it for more than a month and the difference is a more salient as you can see.
And in the next step the broke down this group and here is what we have. So here we have normal intestinal permeability group at elevated one and look at the difference.
And it turned out that the patients that had normal intestinal permeability have been doing the PKD as a standalone therapy. So no medicines, no chemotherapy, no supplements.
And here we do have a patient who had been doing PKD along with a biological therapy. This is a patient who had also been consuming alcohol on a regular basis and this is just not adherent patient.
And we do have this pattern across to our two other sets of measurements. Okay let's move forward to develop transitional studies. So these are actual interventional studies before after measurements.
Here we have three healthy control persons but two have been following a standard Western type diet and then moved toward the PKD.
This subject had been following a popular paleo diet and then PKD. As you can see, the first measurement is elevated in all three cases in red and then we have a second measurement at three or four weeks of the diet. And as you can see in all three cases, intestinal permeability went back to normal.
And in this subject we also have a [inaudible 00:18:01] measurement. This was done at one year of the PKD and as you can see intestinal permeability further decreased.
We have the same comparison for patients, here we have a patient with Hodgkin lymphoma who had been using the classical version of the ketogenic diet.
In addition, he has been taking 10 sorts of supplements, and he was also over several cycles of chemotherapy and a huge intestinal permeability and in four months we did see that intestinal permeability decreased significantly, but we still have somewhat elevated intestinal permeability for the middle molecules here. And this is something we frequently see in those patients who underwent chemotherapy before.
Another patient, ovarian cancer, first measurement, then the second measurement, then the third measurement.
So what we see is that on the PKD, intestinal permeability lowered but still elevated, and this is pointing to the fact that the chemotherapy is maybe doing harm that may not be reversed or mainly may only be reversed in a longer time.
And this is also supported from studies in the literature showing that chemotherapy is contributing to the intestinal permeability.
And then we have an epilepsy patient who became first seizure free and then again started having seizures and the adherence issues were suspected.
So therefore she was asked to come to our clinical retreat where she was under our core closed control. And this was the first measurement upon arrival and just in two days intestinal permeability normalized and she was completely seizure free during this period, otherwise she had daily seizures.
Why do we use intestinal permeability?
First in order to monitor dietary adherence, and this is an important issue in children because adherence is very tricky in children. Then we can monitor the course of the disease, where is the disease going?
What is the pattern behind? And we can also monitor the activity of the PKD, but of course we can monitor the effective any other diet. Cancer, but they do see that a normal intestinal permeability, in patients is associated with low inflammation level.
And we also see that both are associated with a better outlook in terms of survival or progression free survival.
Here we have a patient with a glioblastoma, which is a grade four brain cancer. Now the patient is progression free, so not just alive as completely progression free for the last 30 months. Otherwise, average of the survivor is not...
How old is he?
53. Average survivor is not more than six months, in the case of glioblastoma. And here we have a normal intestinal permeability. Here we have normal blood work measured in time, with a quite low inflammation level.
And here we can see the followup MRIs for the patients. So no change in the size of the tumor across the 30 months.
And then just some interesting data showing that in those who are eating in a similar way like this, a couple, wife and husband.
There are similar curves for the intestinal permeability. This was one done at the first day of their both PKD diet.
And it is elevated to a similar level despite of the fact that one is a patient and another one is a [inaudible 00:22:14] person.
Okay. There are other interesting measurement exemplifying that only meat or meat fat diet is able to completely normalize intestinal permeability in patients, especially the very, some patients are very prone to add something because it seems too simple.
It hard to believe that something so simple would be more effective than something less complex. So this patient has been using different supplements in addition and as you can see, the intestinal permeability is at the level of the higher end of the normality.
So it is not pathological. It is just somewhat higher than it is accepted expected on his diet.
Then here we have another transition. This was a relatively [inaudible 00:23:12] person. First following the carnivore diet, in red. Then he shifted to our PKD because he still had some symptoms.
And as you can see the curves are very, very similar because as I told you, intestinal permeability only depends it primarily depends on what you eat and what you do not eat.
The difference between the two diets is beyond the intestinal permeability.
Here we can see matched blood works. The first one goes for the carnivore period.
The second column for the PKD and as you can see the glucose and the [inaudible 00:23:52], the B1 value was elevated which came back to the normal range on the PKD. These are very difficult alteration, but I show you a other very difficult example.
Again, a patient on the carnivore diet. There are alterations in both directions including glucose, cholesterol, [inaudible 00:24:16] normalize this and all normalize and the PKD within three, within four weeks.
So this is a typical constellation of laboratory alterations and this is indicating eating too much protein, not enough fat, and this is something that they result in negative consequences.
Here you can see the physiological differences between ketosis, fat-based metabolism and the glucose base metabolism and here we have to include the carnivore diet because although it might strange at first, but if you are on a carnivore diet, you will be eating meat instead of meat and fat.
Which means that you will be obtaining energy from protein amino acids, the so called gluco genic amino acids.
And if you are using the glucose for obtaining energy, it is a much less energy efficient form of using energy and therefore you have to do some compensations in order to have enough energy.
ATP produced in ketosis is at least 2.6 times higher than obtained from the glucose and it's obvious that it is also higher than update from the protein.
There is a difference in the need of oxygen. There's a difference in need for vitamins, also need for antioxidants.
There's a huge difference in the need for digestive juices and there is a big difference in the amount of food you have to eat to be satiated. A need for water also differs.
The need for protein is actually the same because it is a biochemical need and if you are eating and you are in ketosis, there is no, there are no storage processes, so no weight gain.
If you are following a carnivore diet especially meat based diet or very lean meat based diet, there may be weight gain and insulin level is low if you're in ketosis and high can be high if you are on a carnivore diet or any glucose based diet.
So this is to exemplify how the PKD looks like. So this is a continuum. On one end we have a diet, which is 100% animal meat and fat. On the other end we have a diet, which may be containing certain percentage of certain vegetables and fruits, but this is only an allowance.
This is not a recommendation and it can be okay for those who are already recovered, relatively has it. This is still ensuring ketosis. If you are eating fat to protein according to 2-1.
And here are the chain of the events leading to the development of the autoimmune disease.
So first you are eating something that you are not supposed to eat and these food components will result in a junction.
This junction destruction with the intestine. This is resulting in increased intestinal permeability and also increased general membrane permeability and then certain food components get into your circulation.
And then there is a specific binding between certain macromolecules and a certain tissues within the body and they are forming, they're forming a complex.
And this complex is presenting a danger signal to the immune system and therefore the immune system is attacking the complex. And so far you are eating this, there will be a continued destruction of the tissues usually ongoing out to immune process.
And here there are two downstream phenomenon to the intestinal permeability. If you do have an intestinal permeability, this may give rise to or maybe associated with the permeability of other membranes.
For example, if you are blood brain barrier is affected, you may develop on a long term autoimmune diseases of the central nervous system.
And then we have an other very important phenomenon and this is about losing the contact inhibition within tissues.
So cell junctions, by junctions get impaired. And this is giving rise to the impaired communication between cells within the tissue.
So in very simple words, the cells are not able to communicate with each other properly, they do not feed each other properly.
They do not have a control over each other growths. And this can be resulting in proliferation or endless tissue growths.
Thank you for your attention.
Here is what we got from Zsofia's talk:
Almost any autoimmune disease can be "cured" or, (at the least) reduced significantly.
The best results, (by far) are obtained when the PKD, (the Hungarian version of the carnivore diet) which is: meat, eggs, organ meats, and animal fat. The fat to meat ratio should be 2 bites of fat to every bite of meat or protein.
Zsofia has said elsewhere and this is paraphrased: never eat dairy, dairy products or vegetables, vegetable oil, or any supplements containing the above.
What is Rick Simpson Oil?
Rick Simpson is a Canadian who cured his own cancer by making cannabis oil and eating it - swallowing it. In this way, the THC, (and some CBD) process through the liver.
Rick spent years growing cannabis and making his oil and giving it away - allowing many people to cure their own cancer.
Rick was arrested , tried and convicted and left Canada. Rick now writes and speaks about curing cancer with cannabis oil.
There are MANY auto immune diseases that can be helped or cured by using Rick Simpson Oil. There is also now a substantial body of scientific studies on cannabis backing up the amazing stories of Rick Simpson Oil patients.
The protocol is to ingest 900 milligrams of THC every 24 hours, after you build enough tolerance to do that. So, you start out ingesting what you can tolerate, until you can stand 900 milligrams a day.
Reaching that level can be done in about 30 days - by a determined person. (All people can build a tolerance to the high - but the effectiveness does not diminish as the high lessens).
Once 900 milligrams is reached, the patient continues for 60 more days.
The problem is, most people can't stand being high until they build a tolerance.
We were a legal medical marijuana provider, years ago. We have deep experience and we helped a lot of people get to success. We also watched many fail because they just could not stick with it.
We found that many succeeded by using suppositories because they didn't get high or just got a mild body high.
We have a large website about Rick Simpson Oil - visit: www.WeedandHealth.com .
We don't make, buy or sell any cannabis products.
