Corina overcomes veganism and many health issues on a carnivore diet

You’ll be amazed by Corina’s carnivore journey; in just six months, she was able to reverse the negative impact of veganism on her health, and resolve joint pain, fatigue, migraines, and some social limitations.

Corina’s health has improved immensely since discovering the carnivore diet after many years as a vegetarian, vegan, and fruitarian. Born in Switzerland and living in different places across the globe, Corina’s diet varied based on where she was living. “I tried to eat the way the locals eat; that’s how my parents taught me”, she shared. “I developed a love for seafood and a lot of traditional swiss food.” These foods were often high in dairy and carbs, which Corina later discovered she had trouble digesting. “For many years I just kept eating the way I was taught, and I had no idea I was allergic to dairy. I ended up becoming a sugar junkie, having chocolate and cookies every single day for years.”

In her twenties, suffering from frequent migraines and muscle pain, Corina adopted a vegetarian diet, and eventually a vegan diet, which she kept faithfully for four years. Upon the advice of her doctor, she gave up sugar and dairy. She says of the vegan diet, “I know now that this diet will destroy your health slowly and steadily, but back then I had no idea. I even tried fruitarianism for a year. My teeth started to rot, and I was always hungry again an hour after eating.” Returning to a plant-based diet, Corina continued to experience constipation, bloating, exhaustion, severe brain fog, depression, and hip pain that would not subside.

These health challenges severely impacted Corina’s ability to work as a server, and after being on her feet all day she would come home exhausted. “I could not stand longer than 30 minutes due to back and hip pain. I had no energy, and was bloated all the time. I was extremely uncomfortable in my body!” After realizing her body could no longer endure physical strain, she knew she had to make a change.

As an adult with autism, she had learned that there might be a connection between migraines and GI issues. “I experienced sensory overload issues which led to migraines. Like other adults with autism, I was eating a very carb-loaded diet.” Now, six months into the carnivore diet, she only experiences very mild headaches if she consumes grains or dairy, or is in a stressful situation, nothing like the debilitating experience she had before. She enjoys pork cracklings as a carnivore snack, satisfying her need for crunchy foods.

Corina’s issues of being chronically cold and having severe PMS symptoms while on a vegan diet have also been resolved. In researching her conditions, she discovered many people with autism can’t tolerate any plant foods, which led her to the carnivore diet. Six months in, her struggles with misophonia, hip pain, stress resilience, and social skills (i.e. keeping eye contact) have all improved. “I finally feel I can turn my life around! My body has become my best friend and now we work as a team–that’s just an amazing feeling, and I’m so grateful!”

 

Woman heals from multiple sclerosis (MS) on a carnivore diet

This woman had suffered from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 25 years, and found significant relief from her symptoms after following the Carnivore Diet. Five years ago, her disease turned progressive and she knew she needed to find a way to heal.

The Mayo Clinic defines Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). The immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.

While there is currently no cure for MS, it is believed that the Carnivore Diet can help with many autoimmune conditions by eliminating foods that irritate the gut and instead focusing on nutrient-dense foods that don’t cause inflammation in our bodies.

Beginning on a diet protocol used to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), she ate a ketogenic diet with a 2:1 fat to protein ratio, plus organ meats. She followed this way of eating for 18 months. While the diet change did not have a noticeable effect on her MS symptoms, she started to feel better overall.

She began the Carnivore Diet and within three months she was experiencing deeper, more restful sleep and regained her tolerance to heat. “I had energy throughout the day and I was able to sunbathe once again.”

Her mobility also greatly improved while on the Carnivore Diet. She shares, “My feet no longer roll out and I was able to manage a daily walk of one to two miles using walking sticks. I can climb the stairs again with only one hand on the railing. Before I had to haul myself up. I feel really great!”

While she hasn’t noticed significant changes to her weight yet (and is only seven pounds from her goal) she says, “I believe the progression of my MS has been halted with this diet.”

A growing number of people who suffer from autoimmune disorder have found relief from their symptoms by following a high-fat diet of primarily meat. Cutting out plants, grains, and sugars is believed to lower the body’s inflammatory response, which plays a significant role in many autoimmune and other diseases.

While the presence and intensity of MS symptoms can vary throughout a patient’s life, making certain changes to diet and lifestyle can help mitigate the impact on their life. Although many patients follow a treatment protocol that includes prescribed medication and treatments like monoclonal antibodies, many have also had success putting their disease into remission by following the Carnivore Diet.
