Hi, my name is Amanda, I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy who has been living with chronic disease (SIBO, gastritis, gastroparesis, migraines and chronic pain) for over a decade. I have done many diets trying to maintain a healthy weight however I continued to have digestion issues. In 2020, I had a migraine with seizure that left me bed bound. I was unable to dress, shower, or walk independently. I would go blind intermittently and have stuttering speech. My neurologist said this was a progression of my migraines and this was just the way it is. He put me on many medications but never asked me about my nutrition. Which at the time I was doing the bariatric diet protocol. (1200 calories a day). After 9 months of testing and medications with little to no improvement, I started researching migraines, and idiopathic intercranial hypertension. This is when I found carnivore. I watched people changing their lives and I wanted that too. I did about a months’ worth of research and jumped all in on Feb. 5th, 2022. I have now been a carnivore for a year, and I no longer consider myself chronically ill. I have recently started back to work as well as have been able to complete my small farm tasks. I believe nutrition is the first step in becoming healthy and living a full life.
I have personal experience with:
- binge eating
- idiopathic intercranial hypertension
- musculoskeletal injuries
- chronic severe diarrhea
- carb addiction
- pre- diabetes
