Month 4 of carnivry coming up, and I honestly feel the most BALANCED I have ever felt, from the inside out. How ironic that this WOE is viewed as extreme, and while it IS an extreme deviation from the norm, I feel like THIS is the natural reference point from which to assess relatives. I can live pain-free, I can heal, I can get stronger, I can FEEL GOOD, I can thrive. THIS is the natural set point and birth right of a human being, and eating an animal-based diet is a natural part of that.
If I had this tool right when I was diagnosed with autoimmune, I think my recovery would have been a much smoother, less bumpy path. (well, and if I had it before then, it would have saved me from the deficiencies of veganism!). The fact that I was vegan during most of my later developmental years (13 to 20) makes me sad and mad, but this is the first time I actually feel hope to recover and rebuild on a cellular level. A small list of the very long list of consequences = Grave's disease, all metabolic syndrome markers, teeth literally breaking in half, gastrointestinal inflammation and impaction, brain fog, lermenant state of fatigue, never ending sense of hunger however much I ate, a perpetual feeling of anxiety, depression, skin rashes, brittle nails with deep ridges (indicates nutritional deficiencies)... And to think that vegan is becoming MORE popular, especially with the youth, makes me worry about generations down the line... & makes me even more passionate to advocate healthy animal foods. To think about all the days & experiences I missed when sick & in pain fuels me to want to give others who are in that position options and hope, and I wouldn't change a thing because its brought me to where I am now with an increased capacity for compassion.
I'm nowhere near my best, and it's a process, including one of self-acceptance, compassion and active examination of what works and what doesn't, but fuck, life is better on carnivore.
