Hi, my name is Milian. I’m 28 years old computer programmer from Bosnia Herzegovina. Here’s my story:
For the past 5 years my health was constantly declining. My main food was potatoes, cheese, polenta, green beans, eggs, and chicken breasts. I had:
- upper respiratory tract inflammation,
- heart palpitations,
- upper stomach pain,
- too much abdominal gas,
- third-degree and fourth-degree hemorrhoids,
- pain in my lower left abdomen,
- kidney stones began forming (my mother lost her kidney from that),
- skin rash on my back,
- onset of cavities,
- bad breath,
- mild ear infection,
- ear eczema, and
Surgery no salvation
After a nose surgery (septoplasty) that didn’t resolve my upper respiratory tract inflammation, I began exploring this hypothesis that what is causing it was silent reflux. Then I read “Heartburn – Fast Tract Digestion.” In short,
Norm Robillard, the author, is saying that the main cause of our gastrointestinal-related problems lies in the gas pressure inside our bowels. That gas is created by bacteria eating carbs — the process of fermentation. Eating food with low Fermentation Potential really reduced abdominal gas, which helped, but not significantly.
Conquering my skepticism
Afraid of too much fat, cholesterol, fiber/vitamins/minerals deficiency, I didn’t go for all-meat. Still skeptical, while researching I come across Benjamin Bikman, Shawn Baker, and other information. The second part was just thinking about our ancient past as humans.
More surgery avoided
About two months into eating mostly meat and eggs, my condition significantly improved — physical and mental. Only upper respiratory tract inflammation didn’t go away completely, but now it is manageable. All other issues: gone. My biggest surprise was that I don’t have any more problems with hemorrhoids. I was about to go to surgery.
Now, I will share my experience with anyone I can.
