Since he was 16 years old, Aaron has suffered with multiple autoimmune diseases including Sjögren’s syndrome and lupus and was incredibly sick having been bedridden for a year-and-a-half. He felt he had reached the bottom of his entire existence. During this time in his life he spent every single day trying to find answers to his health problems but nothing helped in the slightest until he found the carnivore way of eating.
He felt as though he would never have a love life, get married or reach any of the goals he had set for himself. His will to live was almost gone. But he wasn’t quite done yet. He decided to give life one more chance. Working with his health practitioner, he started on the autoimmune protocol diet but it barely helped. However it did indicate to him that his autoimmune issues were diet related and at least he didn’t feel worse. Cutting out soy and grains helped a little bit but not enough.
When he heard about the carnivore diet this seemed to be crazy-talk to Aaron. After all, we’ve all been taught by health practitioners that that you absolutely have to have fruits and vegetables to be healthy. But since he thought he had nothing to lose, he’d try the carnivore diet for a week starting out with some steak, hamburger and chicken.
One thing led to another and so after two months of being on the carnivore diet, he decided to go to an all beef regimen. He started to feel better. Some medications he was told that he would have to take for the rest of his life had now been discontinued. Others were down to 1/2 or 1/3 of the dosage he’d been taking before.
Aaron has been on a carnivore diet now for 6 1/2 months. An optimistic attitude was finally back on his plate allowing him to enjoy things like dating and living a full life. Aaron would like to tell others not to think that things can’t get better because he knows that they can. In addition, he’d like to thank Shawn Baker, Michaela Petersen, Tristan Haggard and all the people who have inspired him over these many months to try the carnivore diet and stick to it.
