The old Steve
The new Steve

Hi, my name is Steve. I would like to share my story in the hopes that it will be inspirational to others.

I’m 34 years young. In my 20s I was a footballer. I played 3rd & 2nd grade for Manly Marlins. I was your average young guy who loved to party & have fun. On the 29th April 2012 I was playing a game & hit my head however I continued playing & then after the game went out with my mates & got drunk. To cut a long story short, it turns out that I had a concussion & the next thing I knew I awoke in hospital after being in a coma for 2 weeks. I has suffered a hypoxic brain injury.

As a result I was left severely disabled. I was wheelchair bound, had brain damage, I became vision impaired, I lost a lot of weight, had a lot of trouble chewing, swallowing and talking. Worst of all I developed epilepsy and was having regular seizures which seemed to make my disabilities even worse.

Over the past 8 years I have suffererd with severe depression & anxiety. I have a fantastic team of therapists and carers & very slowly have seen some improvement.

In November 2019 my carer suggested a ketogenic diet which very swiftly changed to a carnivore diet.

Since then my depression & anxiety has gone, I cannot explain how good I feel. My eyesight has improved to the extent that I no longer need glasses, my speech has improved, I have put back on most of the weight I had lost (and gained lots of muscle tone).

I also had major trouble with my sinuses, my nose was constantly blocked or running but that has now stopped, my sinuses are clear. Best thing ever is that I have not had a seizure this whole time.
Since being plant free I have:
  • more energy and feel better than ever
  • recieved a positive blood test showing healthy ranges of all blood markers including normal nutrient levels. LDL was high but triglycerides were very low
  • regular and health bowel motions
  • recieved a great report from my councellor, saying she had never seen me in a better mental state
  • recieved an amazing report from my chiropractor saying hes never seen me in better condition and does not want to touch me
  • recieved a great report from my OT saying she was very pleased with the progress ive made and i had better keep doing what i am doing
  • improved fine motor skills
  • improved cognotive ability, i have so many great ideas for future projects
  • not had a virus, cold, or allegy, in fact my nasal congestion issues have decreased massively
  • felt a huge improvement to my dental hygeine. i was having massive problems before and the dentist said i would need to go back soon probably for another filling however i am not experiencing any pain or discomfort.
I take no supplements or medication apart from Keppra for my epilepsy, however I believe I will be able to come off that one day.
I believe whole heartedly in this diet, I am educating myself about it constantly and hope to have a blog to help educate others one day.

  1. You have every right to be proud of your progress. I am on carnivore but am having urges to eat plant food, especially peanuts. Why peanuts, I don’t know.
    Even being only 90% Carnivore I have lost weight and my health issues have improved. I have auto immune issues and high blood pressure.
    Keep posting to encourage others to maintain the carnivore diet. Have you listened to Dr. Paul Saladino M.D. on Utube. He is very good. So is Dr. Ede M.D.

  2. Excellent, fantastic news! The gut and brain axis gives you a direct channel for healing potential. Best wishes to you!
