My name is Amber and I’m 32, 5’4 and 129 lbs .
Starting in 2014 I had been experiencing muscle weakness, joint pain, and neurological symptoms such as: numb hands, loss of feeling in my feet and the sides of my legs. I was also having trouble staying awake during normal functioning hours of the day.
Plant based keto
I switched from the S.A.D. in 2017 to a ketogenic diet, but mostly plant based (less than 25% meat). That helped initially, but I would still flare and have extreme symptoms. I noticed during my worst flare in April 2019 that the flare directly followed a stir-fry vegetarian meal high in greens, seeds, tofu, and olive oil to cook in. I was sick for months with numbness and joint paint, which led me to discover the existence of oxalates and the anti-inflammatory nature of the ketogenic carnivore lifestyle.
Carnivore, all in!
In Sept I went full carnivore: Beef, lamb, organs, bone marrow, tallow, suet, etc. Within 14 days the numbness in my hands was resolved and within a month the remainder of the numbness was gone. Now 4 months in I have minimal joint paint and my gait is unaltered. I have outstanding energy, mental clarity, and a true lust for life I’ve not had since my teenage years. Thank you carnivore diet and all the carnivore doctors and pioneers for showing me the light!
