Why I am a thankful carnivore

I was 1st diagnosed with major depression in 1990.

In 1995 I started taking anti-depressants.

This began a cycle of wellness vs illness that gradually tilted towards being ill most of the time.

In 2007 I had your text book nervous breakdown. Crippling insomnia & anxiety joined the party.
Doctor put me on much stronger meds that included Effexor, Wellbutrin, Ambien, Remeron, Lamactil, Abilify, Seroquel, Ativan, Trazadone, Latuda & many more!

From 1995 till the end of 2017 my brain chemistry was constantly under assault by these medicines that never really helped me for more than a few weeks at most.

In 2015 I discovered I could treat my symptoms successfully with cannabis. I began LCHF diet & started walking.

By the end of 2015 I was off the anti-depressants.

By the end of 2016 I was off the ativan (after 8 years of daily prescribed use)

By the end 2017 I was off insomnia meds.

But I was still dependent on cannabis. Even as a legal patient here in Florida it is very expensive to use & I hated being dependent upon it just to treat my mood.

Then I discovered Dr Jordan Peterson on Rogan talking about the Carnivore way of eating which led me directly to Dr Shawn Baker & this website!

On July 16, 2018 I began living carnivorously. I have only consumed meat & water since that day.

10 days into the experience I lost all joint pain.

Beginning on day 23 into day 24 I felt the depression symptoms all vanish. I am 100% of depression now!

My anxiety problem gradually improved every day to where now 6.5 months in, I have no anxiety issues now to speak of.

My skin which use to be VERY dry, cracked & peeling has cleared up immensely.

I lost skin tags. My quality of sleep has improved dramatically. I frequently get 7-8 hours of sleep now.

The background noise in my head is all gone. My ability to observe has improved immensely.

Every aspect of my life has improved since I began eating meat & drinking water. I am on zero pharmaceutical medications.

This is why I am a thankful carnivore now & forever!
