I just wanted to share a simple story to help get the word out there. Back in 2006, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I mentioned to the doctor that I thought I was too young (25y/o) to be diagnosed with that condition.
She told me normally yes, but with all the hormones in food, it’s not surprising and that there is nothing I can do about it other than pain control.
Severe Pain Before Carnivore
Fast forward to 2012, and I was having severe pain and sought out a doctor to have surgery for the second time. The doctor spoke to me about food and how to care for the endometriosis without surgery. Staying away from red meat was something he advised and which I followed.
It seemed to have worked for a bit (after I had the second surgery and was told I had the highest stage possible). About a year and a half ago, I was in so much pain I was looking to have surgery again, and for some reason or another, I never got booked in.
I should mention at these times, I was following your typical body-building diet. I heard Shawn on the Joe Rogan podcast, and I was quite intrigued by the information I heard and decided to give it a try, mainly because I was sick of eating six times a day.
I was also so worried about the red meat and the endo I asked Shawn twice about it, and he assured me there weren’t enough hormones in the meat to contribute to the condition.
Trying Carnivore for the First Time and Finding Relief
As scared and skeptical as I was, I continued. It’s now been a year Carnivore (with some slips), but I am so happy to say I have been pain-free for about four months. One day I just realized I wasn’t complaining of pain anymore and no pain with sex at all, which was huge for me before.
I also noticed at the same time the pain went away. I developed what I think is oxalate dumping at the same time, and the rashes and blisters are all around my abdomen.
Not sure if that is a coincidence or not, but it’s definitely something I am now paying attention to. I haven’t been sick in ages. I’m leaner, stronger, and the healthiest I have ever been, and I must thank Shawn for getting the word out there. It’s changed my life.
