Wade heals anxiety, depression, strep throat, joint pain on carnivore diet

Wade is 50 years old and has noticed incredible improvements after just six weeks on the Carnivore Diet. Throughout childhood and most of his adult life, Wade suffered from frequent bouts of strep throat, food allergies, and a whole host of digestive issues. Due to frequent infections, Wade spent most of his childhood on antibiotics and injections. By the time he was an adult, he had developed severe symptoms related to leaky gut syndrome.

At 41 years old, Wade made the transition from the standard American diet to a vegan diet. However, the fiber and oxalates from the plant-based food caused many problems including what Wade describes as “Blazing Saddles” gas, bloating, indigestion, anxiety, and depression.

“I ate a vegan diet for a couple of years, but I just got sicker and sicker. I lost 100 pounds, but I was still feeling awful, so I decided to add animal protein back into my diet.” After turning to a series of naturopathic doctors and some online resources, Wade learned that he needed to eliminate fiber from his diet if he was going to heal his gut issues.

Things were looking bleak for Wade, who often suffered severe gut pain and even mucous and blood in his stools. He started supplementing with magnesium and B12 to help improve deficiencies. Eventually, he found out about Dr. Shawn Baker’s carnivore challenge, and decided to give it a try.

“For six weeks, I’ve been following the Carnivore Diet, and I feel amazingly better! My mood has never been more stable in my life, and my anxiety and joint pain are gone. I had a severe neck issue for a long time, and that has improved as well.” Wade plans to continue with the Carnivore Diet and looks forward to seeing more improvements to his health and wellbeing.

Wade is now able to enjoy doing home workouts again, something he was unable to do for the last 3 years. He is feeling stronger every day, and is enjoying having the energy to lift weights again. In terms of other improvements, Wade notes he no longer has constipation, diarrhea, or bloody stools and now experiences normal bowel movements, something that may surprise people who think you need a lot of fiber. “My gut is not completely healed yet, but it’s way better than it was before I started the Carnivore Diet.”

Wade’s meals include steak twice a day, some pork chops, grass-fed butter, and occasionally some eggs. He feels much better since eliminating plant foods, and is finally free of the excessive gas and bloating from when he was following a vegan diet.

He notices his digestive issues and anxiety return if tries adding in a vegetable smoothie, so he has learned not to include those in his diet even occasionally. “Sometimes people need to learn a hard lesson like that to realize they’re not crazy, and that plants can be harmful.” For now, Wade is looking forward to seeing even more benefits from staying on the Carnivore Diet.
