Sorry about the incredibly long silence. I’m going through some personal life drama (nothing health related) and I’ve been incredibly busy. I’ll update everyone on that later.
All beef diet is still going strong! I am still alive and thriving. I will not have radio silence again for this long, and I am going to start a YouTube Channel in November! Stay tuned.
Here are some quick updates (pepper reaction and baby update):
Pepper reaction early August: I went out to eat and had pepper accidentally in August. Five days before the podcast with Rogan. I hardly had any pepper, just a bit. I freaked out as soon as I noticed, and left the restaurant and went home and stressed out. Had a bunch of activated charcoal, prayed to the autoimmune gods, almost cried, etc. I didn’t get away with it, I did react to pepper. It was MINOR in comparison to reintroducing a food and what used to happen, but I did react. I had body odour for about 2 weeks, and a tiny bit of brain fog. It was hardly noticeable really. Well, the BO was. But not the rest of the autoimmune stuff. My knee hurt one day and my big toe and that was basically it. Almost. It was a breeze for a reaction, but what did happen was I got a rash/breakout! I’m 99% sure it was pepper related because my skin never breaks out. I had something that looked like a keto rash all over my shoulders and back a week after pepper. I took some pictures but it was way worse in person. And itchy… It usually takes about a week for the reaction to hit my skin and boy did it. There are still marks but they’re finally fading now. It’s been 7 weeks since the pepper. So yeah, pepper is a no. But the good news is it wasn’t a disaster at all, other than my skin. Easy peasy for a reaction.
Breastfeeding and weaning and baby: I stopped breastfeeding August 27th right before the Joe Rogan podcast. It was bittersweet. Scarlett had naturally weaned herself down to just nursing at night, and she was only drinking about an oz. I nursed one day and she immediately threw it up. She never spits up food, but she’d spit up my milk. I didn’t think this was a particularly good time, and it was kind of upsetting. I’m wondering if my immune system is so sensitive that it was bugging her. Who knows. Mom worries. Anyway, weaning was a breeze. I had read about women getting sore boobs and the horrors of stopping breastfeeding but it was easy. I didn’t even notice. Except now I have no boobs again… Throughout my teenage years, I always consoled myself about my lack of boobs by thinking, “at least once I have kids I’ll have them!” WRONG. They’re back to normal. Literally, it looks like nothing happened (so it could be worse).
Scarlett now sleeps through the night! So that’s HUGE. We crib trained. Crib training was stressful. We did the cry it out method. It sucked. She screamed for 1.5 hours the first night. One hour the second night, 30 minutes the 3rd night, and 5 minutes the fourth night. Now it’s a couple of whimpers and she’s out. Should’ve crib trained wayyyy long ago.
J Peterson update: Dad is still going strong on beef. He reintroduced chicken and thinks it went well, but then he ate some chicken at a friends house that was marinated and had a reaction. It wasn’t even marinated with anything crazy. Garlic, spices, no sugar or anything. The reaction was pretty unpleasant but again, nothing like the reactions that used to happen when we were eating vegetables. He was incredibly anxious in the mornings for about a week and a half. And he told me half of his body was numb for about 3 days. So not ideal? But he’s recovered now. It’s been two weeks. That’s way better than a month of hell like it used to be. I told him to lay off the chicken and reintroduce it again when he’s back from touring. That way it’s more of a clean test. My guess is he can tolerate chicken and he just reacted to the marinade. I cannot tolerate chicken, but we are not the same.
Will update everyone more throughout the week!
To have such a strong immune response to pepper suggests that although you feel better you have not fixed the underlying cause of your hyperactive immune system. Eating meat only will naturally reduce your exposure to allergens, but as you have found, adding them again leads to the same response.
Might I suggest that you might have a nutritional deficiency, or a bad gene change, that makes it very difficult for you to deal with oxidative stress? There might be ways to fix this with unconventional antioxidants like B2, Manganese, and Molybdenum.
I have Lupus and I have introduced even wheat again with no gut reaction.
You are right about underlying cause.
The pains and rashes are caused by a tiny insects like organism .Mycobacterium is one of them (half fungus /half bacteria). Toxin producing bacteria/fungus induces a protein that causes our own cells to react and cause inflammation.
Molybdenum helps by converting the acetaldehyde into acetic acid. This can then be excreted from the body like any other toxin.
Most fungi release a neurotoxin named acetaldehyde. This is just one of the many toxins. For example, candida release a total of 79 different toxins.
Alkalinization , green tea powder ( i found out tannic acid works better) with activated charcoal, and selenium will chelate most of toxins . NAC and milk thistle is needed to help the liver.
Chlorella is usually used in conjunction with cilantro to bind to the heavy metal.
Arthritis in cattle. They have always found bacteria, such as brucella, mycoplasma, streptoccous, staphylococcus, pneumonoccus,mycobacterium, erysipelus in the bones of cattle.
In humans I believe to be similar. The reason why magnesium works is it kills off the staphyloccus, by alkalization . Potassium citrate is likely to kill the others . Long term potassium deficiency and boron can cause these organisms to flourish so it’s going to take some time to remove them, especially the mycoplasma. It’s usually immune systems related.
For more information on pathogen origins here:
Earlier studies have shown lupus inflammation linked to fungal infection .
The fungus grows inside the cell making them invulnerable to antibiotic attack, making it seem autoimmune condition.I believe, it s not white blood cells attacking healthy cells, it is already unhealthy, that’s why they are attacking it.
I think, the simplest idea is to kill the fungus by making their environment unfavorable to them .
Most people with lupus should test for hyperthyroidism.
Check basal temperature is the easiest way to do it. Instructions here :
If average temp is under 36.5 Celsius, then most likely you are suspect of hypothyroidism . Then,check iodine level and selenium level in the body . Manganese, iron,ferritin level must be check too.
Copper supplements, borax(food grade),H2O2, chromium, and B3 niacinamide are some of the antifungal .
From my reaserch people with lupus were successful using borax with h2o2 mix (3%).

I tried taking molybdenum and chlorella and it didn’t help at all. Literally no difference. I was also taking magnesium and that didn’t make a difference. I think there are a lot of complicated answers out there and the simplest answer is we’re not supposed to be eating certain foods.
According to Andre’s research the most probable cause of why molybdenum did not seem to help you Mikhaila is because you did not use it in conjunction with borax that creates the required level of synergy to activate the body’s healing response to molybdenum. Andre, being a sensitive man has provided us this referenced for you in his generously ample sourced notes.
Perhaps consider a retrial of supplemental Mo using the guidelines extracted from his extensively well-researched information? Why is that?
Mikhaila You DO make insightful yet cryptic quotes:
“I think there are a lot of complicated answers out there and the simplest answer is we’re not supposed to be eating certain foods. “
I’ve spent thousands of dollars on supplements and nothing helped until I went on the meat and water diet. I’m not wasting another penny on supplements. There’s growing evidence that some of them do far more harm than good anyway, and it’s an unregulated industry.
Mostly the truth about supplements. The few supplements that do anything of noticeable benefit won’t be very impressive. Most drugs are kind of the same but with more extreme peaks and troughs. It is almost pointlessly circular to talk about. It is good to know what limitations of things are, etc.
I agree . Over 90% of supplements are ineffective. In fact, they can create more problems.
If that supplement is in natural absorbable form (example B vitamins, amino acids etc) then it is not a problem of absorption.
One of the reasons that they are not absorbable is due to the additives they contain (a simple test is to try to dissolve a supplement in a glass of water). The second reason is the dose and the time taken.
Mostly,with minor exceptions, I use powder supplements, mineral salts (my favorites), tinctures, and the amounts used are extremely small, in large part.
A very simple test is to measure our ph in urine in the morning at the first hour(ph test strip). If the pH in the urine is below 6.3 ,then urine is acidic, so we are inside our body ,then the problems begin to appear. The pH in urine in the morning under 6.3 means that milivolts are down.
The pancreas, is the organ most responsible for producing the bicarbonate our bodies need. The purpose of the sodium bicarbonate is to neutralize the high acidity (food plus stomach acid) raising it to an alkaline pH over 7. The pancreas produce sodium bicarbonate. It s kind of funny,but 99% of the pancreas contains exocrine cells that produce 1 litre to 2 litre of digestive juices per day. This pancreatic juice contains powerful digestive enzymes along with water, sodium chloride, and sodium bicarbonate.
At this stage, supplements are useless.
If we are acidic, what does the pancreas do? We eat to much food and too fast? We have bug in our stomach that neutralize digestive acid (h pylori is one of them)?
If we add ACV to the diet, do we raise the ph or do worse ?!
I would not do that unless I want more problems. I have nothing against ACV, on the contrary it’s great, but not in this situation. The first thing I would do is take a buffer before I look at the cause.Sodium bicarbonate is a buffer, so potasium bicarbonate, so magnesium bicarbonate (unique water is expensive, is very easy to make it home).
Do we have stomach bloating when we eat raw vegetables, fruits? It s becouse fermentation occurs due lack of stomach acid,enzyme?! If we drink a glass of water (is buffer) while we eat, what happens with bloating?!
How long does it take to our brain to register that the stomach Is full? About 20-30 minutes. Eating slow, drink a glass of water , not only we eat less,but most likely pancreas will produce sufficient sodium bicarbonate to buffer.
Losing weight? French people have a very rich diet, but they are not fat.They eat very slow, and in a small quantities.
If there is nobbalance between sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium ,we have a problem.
It’s just my opinion, please consult your doctor for health issues.
God bless you all
I don’t trust a bottled water so clear, it is so unnatural and likely lacks key electrolytes to prevent dehydration. It must require sophisticated machinery?
Where does this unique water blend come from? I’d be willing to make an exception. whistling
Agree. Why buy and take supplements just to be able to eat stuff we’re better off without anyway?
Molybdenum main function is in removing toxins and prevent them from building up in the body.High dietary levels of molybdenum, produces a copper deficiency in humans.We don t need to much molybdenum to function,but it s very important to have it in our body.
Chlorella helps the body to detox heavy metals. If combined with cilantro, some parsley, brazil nuts (high in selenium) becomes a powerful chelation therapy (no minerals are removed from body).
Let ‘ s say , I’m in a very difficult situation (I was long time ago), and I have very strong pain at all of the joints,strong inflammation at the cellular level .. etc ,this is what I would do ;
All that I will write below is what I did when I had problems with my joints,and very bad pain. .
* 1/2 tsp sodium bicarbonate ( bob miller free aluminum) +1/4 tsp of potassium bicarbonate (powder ) in 8 oz of water (morning and night,30 min before eating)
* 400 mg magnesium citrate (2 x day with food). Magnesium citrate is used to regulate acidity (the reason i used magnesium citrate). There are different forms of magnesium . Magnesium in a pure state (elemental)it can not be absorbed.From 400mg magnesium citrate we get 16% elemental magnesium,and maybe 60%-80% out of this will absorb in our body.
So, 400 mg of magnesium is in chelated form with lower concentrations of magnesium(elemental) because it is in a highly bioavailable form. Different form of magnesium with different uses.No calcium (
reference in the bottom).
*500 mg Niacinamide × 2 times a day (i took it in the same time with magnesium citrate)
*1 pinch of borax (i used food grade only) x 2 times a day in 2 oz glass of warm water. For me 1 pinch was how much I could take in 3 fingers.
Borax (not to be confused with boric acid,) is a natural mineral salt.
Borax, sodium tetraborate decahydrate, according to a study, is not acutely toxic. Its LD 50 (median lethal dose) score is tested at 2.66 g/kg in rats.Table salt LD 50 is 3g/kg. So, salt looks little bit more toxic than borax( based on LD50) .
I reffer to borax as 100% sodium borate decahydrate (food grade )
Do you like caviar? Then, if you do, they use borax as food preservative (depends what country).
Many countries do outlaw the use of Borax in their food completely. In the USA, it is illegal to use any Borax when processing food. If caviar is imported…
* 500 mg NAC bedore bed time
In the first 2-3 days, I felt that pain increased little bit,(i was expected based on my reaserch) but soon after, pain descended quite quickly. I felt like something was “baking”in the area of pain.
About 2 weeks later symptomes disappeared in a proportion of 70-80%.
Then, i used vit C alkaline /lysine /proline, (all powder only,non gmo ) ,green tea powder, threonine. The reason I used this combination was to increase collagen /repair , possible viruses problems, and immune booster. It s very important the doses / time.Viruses can initiate rheumatic symptoms through various mechanisms.
It took me about two months to be pain free.
That was the basic.
I use 1 pinch of borax daily in my coffee for the last 10-11 years .Most coffee beans on the market, based on my reaserch have molds ,aflatoxins and mycotoxins. It s my way to “clean ” my coffee , before i drink it.I still use magnesium citrate 3-4 times a week (to much calcium in processed food and less magnesium /minerals in vegetable.
I take others staff, depends what issues I have in that day.If luck of sleep (kids keeps me busy), I have noticed that the best way to increase my millivolts (in minutes) is 3-4 drops of 1% methylene blue .I tried no to go under -40 millivolts, and when I have luck of sleep goes lower. Based on my test using ORP meter 3-4 drops will get me back to -50 /-60 milivolts. Potassium ascorbate will do it to, takes longer (does some killing also )
Also,I want to tell you that I’m not a doctor, a researcher, a naturopath or a medical researcher. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
God bless you all
I want to try this diet due to a lot of problems with skin, sore joints, inflammation and migraines. But I don’t understand it. I do a lot of physical work during that days and I lose energy VERY quickly if I don’t have carbs. To the point I can’t do the work. Do you just not move around so the diet works for you? I fell like I have no energy and I can’t make it to even 1 day before running to get a lot of carbs because I can’t work.
You have to get through the carb withdrawal period. It’s definitely not a good sign that you’re experiencing it that quickly. It’s worth trying to get off of them.
I’ve been going to the gym daily. And working hard. And I have no problems. That’s not lack of energy from no carbs, it’s lack of energy from carb withdrawal. The solution isn’t more carbs if you want to actually solve the underlying problem
Mikhaila, I’ve only seen you refer to using “charcoal” to combat the “pepper” reaction, but have been wondering if you or your family take supplements or other adjunct items ?
Nope! But I don’t react to activated charcoal
Activated charcoal works if taken immediately after meals or during meals.
Activated charcoal may have the ability to reduce toxic substances and binding bacterial toxins.
There are different kinds of activated charcoal.
However, what makes the difference between them is the ph (from 7 to 11).
Skin allergies are directly related to the health of our colon and ph. The more acidic we are inside, the more allergic reactions we have.
Acne can be drastically reduced with green tea and Niacinamide.
Activated charcoal does have the ability to trap its own weight of toxic or unwanted materials, preventing their absorption into the body. Hospital emergency rooms use activated charcoal to treat certain types of poisoning from medications (not all).
Activated charcoal is high in C60 (see
Dr. Fathi Moussa, author of the C60 rat study).
A simple solution is 1/2 tsp of baking soda in 8 oz glass of water, 30 minutes after meal.
It works fast on gas and bloating and from my own experince works better than acivated charcoal.
The body’s acidity determines the level of allergy, but other conditions unrelated are hyperactivity, inflammation, unbalanced gut flora, etc.
The diet usually is high in glutamic acid and aspartic acid, and low in histidine. These imbalance creates an excitotoxicity, combined with sugar, fructose, glucose, but especially the general nature of diet is high in carbohydrates. These create an ideal environment for allergies.
Runny nose can instantly be reduced with sea salt, so allergies may in fact be low in sea salt diet. A table salt wont work since is acid in nature. It’s pH is around 5, while sea salt(pink salt) is closer to 7.0 – 7.5 pH.
Should I have this symptoms 1/2 teaspoon pink salt in one cup of water will reduce runny nose in less then 10 minutes.
Certain supplements lower allergies such as vitamin C(sodium ascorbate,alkaline form) lysine, glycine, proline, which has to do with our protective collagen that protects us against allergy in the first place.
So a person with a genetic deficiency having to do with collagen has a potential for allergies. This can easily be alleviated by lysine, proline, glycine and vitamin C, which are collagen nutrients.
The detoxing mechanism is lacking in N acetyl Cysteine, which in combination with glycine and glutamine create glutathione, responsible for detoxing. B3(niacinamide only) and selenium (brazilian nuts), these are also necessary for detoxing especially selenium, which is necessary for producing glutathione to counteract the allergens.
Enzymes in the body are necessary, to break apart the protein that are foreign in the body that produces the allergen. So taking a simple bromelain(powder works fast), pancreatin, and other enzymes will break these protein down.
Tannic acid will cause deactivation of protein circulating the blood to lessen. So you get less circulating allergen proteins.
So, drinking tea without caffeine, such as white tea/ green tea, lowers the allergy because it is the tannic acid that deactivates them, enzymes does that by digestion, liver does that by detoxing with glutathione etc.
Your body is not alkaline enough(buffer needed) and there’s not enough of lysine, N acetyl cysteine and selenium for one.
The allergies can be due to a couple of things, lack of collagen protection (lysine will help there), hypersensitivity to allergen (alkaline remedies taken for 2 weeks should help and green tea extract), lack of electrolytes (usually sea salt will help, in an instant), heavy metal toxicity (chlorella will help there,cilantro), over nervous or anxiety (B3 niacinamide NOT niacin).
That s the basic.
