James gets off all psych meds on a carnivore diet

Hello,
My name is James. I am 27 years old and have suffered immensely from mental health issues since I was 6 years old. I was diagnosed with ADHD and put on psych medication in kindergarten. I also was depressed as a child which progressed as I became a teenager. When I was 17 I was diagnosed with Bipolar and schizo affective disorder. I am now 27 and have been hospitalized due to manic episodes over 200 times. I was told I would never live a normal life and always have to be on medications which caused obesity due to elevating my insulin and blood sugar.

I came across the work of dr. Shawn baker and dr. Chris Palmer. I began intermittent fasting and eating carnivore and within 2 weeks my lifelong depression lifted. I also lost 25 pounds in those 2 weeks. I went from 270 pounds to 245. I had metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, triglycerides and blood sugar) and my labs have all normalized. This is just the beginning of my journey and I am so grateful. I have been on this diet for 1 month and plan to do it for the rest of my life. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. I also check my blood ketones daily to make sure I am in ketosis, usually between 3-5 ml. All of my mental health issues have been put into remission as well as my life long psoriasis that covered my face and scalp.

Thank you Shawn Baker for having the courage to speak the truth. You have saved my life and the lives of future generations by sharing this knowledge. I plan to share my story to try and help heal others who are needlessly suffering. There are no words to express my gratitude.

Sade manages her borderline personality disorder on a carnivore diet

My name is Sade, I’m 28 years old and live in Mexico, I am from London UK. I was diognosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2015 and have also been dealing with Anxiety and Depression for years prior to being diognosed. I tried to talk to someone about getting a diagnosis for Autism (Asperger’s) because of my sensitivity issues, repetitive behaviour and inability to socialize (without substances i.e alcohol/drugs) I have always been extremely socially awkward and not sure of how to connect with others properly. All of my younger siblings are also autistic. The mental health team dismissed everything and stuck with the BPD and prescribed me medications and had me in therapy (DBT) which only lasted 4 weeks due to being homeless at the time.
I had an unstable childhood and really traumatic time as a teenager and young adult.
I am married with a son now and the mental illnesses almost ruined my marriage I found carnivore just in time as we were on the verge of a divorce.
I am currently thriving on carnivore I’ll be going into my 8th week on monday and I’ve seen improvements from just a week into carnivore. Three days for the depression to lift, a week for the anxiety to go completely and the BPD symptoms have been slowly going away week after week. They feel gone now but of course I’m continuing to monitor myself as its only been 8 weeks. But coming from being mentally unstable everyday to not having any episodes or highs/lows… I’m pretty convinced Its a permanent thing.

If you need me to change this in anyway or you need to edit it please feel free. Haven’t done a bio like this before.
Also if the photo isn’t appropriate let me know as I’ll need to take a new photo during the daytime tomorrow. This photo was taken yesterday.
Also a photo of me when I was bigger attached.

Thanks

Sade
