Ernest healed seborrheic keratosis on a carnivore diet

Share This Post


I was inspired to ZC by Kelly Hogan’s experience last year. Later I discovered Shawn Baker, Charles Washington and others, and the ancestral angle won me. So I went full on carnivore for 5 months and the Seborrheic Keratosis that were popping up all over my face and chest disappeared. Also, eczema on face and hands resolved. For some STUPID reason, I went back to keto, I think because it seemed like the weight loss was faster. The eczema returned, so in March 2019 I went back to carnivore full time, forever I hope. It has helped with everything except my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, but it has only been 7 months this time, so will see. My doctor doesn’t like my LDL numbers, but I have done a lot of research and given him printouts of studies contradicting his point and statins, which I refuse. I am 70 years old and we agree to disagree.

My daughter (shown with me hiking in Big Bend Nat’l Park Labor Day) is a 34 year vegetarian. We don’t argue. In fact, it works out. I can order a ribeye when we eat out and she gets my salad and sides! Emotional values (like feeling sorry for animals) cannot be won over with logic, so why bother? Oh, I have also lost 50 lbs, from 230 to 180. I worked in the Alaskan Arctic for 30 years and had many Inupiaq Eskimos for friends. I know how they used to eat and survived in the harshest environment on earth for thousands of years. And I have more Neanderthal in me than about 95% of folks. We wouldn’t be here and wouldn’t have brains to enjoy this website if not for meat. Viva la carne!

  1. Wonderful photo with your daughter, Ernest!

    I Googled keto and seborrheic keratosis when I realized those lesions on my torso are disappearing. Can’t find much – but I found you! I’m doing keto and they definitely are disappearing. Never was diabetic and my A1C has been low my entire life. But I did eat a good bit of bread, whole grains, and legumes. I see that keto didn’t work for you – this just points out how we are all different and need to find what works for us. I’m so glad you chose a path to better health. Thank you for writing about it!

    1. That’s funny, I was googling SK and keto and also this was all I could find! I have just started Keto and was hoping it might help my SK, really glad you’re finding it’s helping yours! Good luck with it.

  2. I am toying with going carnivore, I’ve been keto for a year and not noticed much difference in my SK (I have one over 1inch on my waist which catches on everything!), whilst my body & skin feel so much better on keto than higher carbs it still grows and gets irritated plus I’m at that annoying weight plateau thing, so I need to change it up, and IF isn’t really enough I feel…. I’m inspired to read your post – thank you 😊
