My Carnivore Discovery

Phil Escot Clear Arterial Scans

Summary: For a period of about 5 years I experienced what doctors have labeled “peripheral neuropathy”, arthritis, and atherosclerosis. As it progressed I was waking up in the night with the urgency to shake my arms to restore blood flow and oxygen to my arms, hands and fingers. This problem miraculously improved when I switched to the Carnivore Lifestyle.

This video is cued to the point where Phil Escot explains how his arterial scans done in his 50’s  when he was a Vegan, showed developing atherosclerosis from plaque which is the result of oxalates bound to calcium clogging arteries.  Later in his 60’s while Phil was eating the Carnivore – Lion Diet, his scans show his arteries are clear!

My Journey: In my late 20’s I realized that processed foods and chemicals had to go so I was eating mostly whole foods which was an improvement.   In my late 50’s I was badly misled by the “Hallelujah Acres” which called for vegan eating which I realize now contributed to a progressive problem for 5 years, requiring that I shake my arms to get blood and oxygen into my hands.  Ultimately I was waking up in the middle of the night to shake my arms so I could restore blood flow to my hands.

Then at age 65 my middle finger on my left hand hooked sharply in the morning and it was painful to straighten.

Fortunately on July 11th 2023 I watched this video: Phil Escot on the Charlie Ward show.  Phil is a drummer and a former vegan who had written books about the subject of veganism, but he switched to Carnivore when arthritis crippled his ability to perform so he began eating the “Lion Diet” which means only fatty ruminant meat including beef, lamb, bison, venison, salt and water.

I was convinced it was worth a try so switched immediately to an all animal based diet including: Eggs, Fish, Chicken, Beef, Butter, Bacon and Eggs – BBB&E as long time carnivores call it.

I started noticing improvements immediately.  Within a few days of eating the Carnivore diet, I slept through the night with no more need to shake my arms to un-cramp them.  Then gradually improving over the course of several months my hooked finger stopped hooking.  I was inflammation pain free!

Now I was aware I found the “Proper Human Diet”, so in November of 2023 I progressed to the more strict “Lion Diet” that Phil Escot, Dr. Anthony Chaffee, and Mikala Peterson are eating.  It consist of only water, salt and ruminant fatty meat including beef, bison and lamb which are among the fattiest.

Retrospectively, I realize now that that my previous problems with hands and arms was made worse / accelerated by 1 year of veganism because my “gut” wall became more permeable during that time causing Oxalates and other plant toxins to enter my bloodstream, which then were sequestered in all my tissues including bones, ligaments, arteries & veins.  Also since these plant toxins cause tissue inflammation (because the body is always working to rid itself of poisons), I reached the point where the inflammation, called arthritis developed, and the first clear sign of that was my morning hooked finger.

Like Phil Escot, I’m also extremely glad I had arthritis since that it led me to the Carnivore lifestyle.

Some the healthiest, smartest and youngest looking people I’ve seen are those who lived most or all of their lives eating only meat. Their experience, and human history establishes that the Carnivore lifestyle is the Ancestrally correct diet for us.  Anthony Chafee is one of those people.  You can follow his journey by watching the videos below:
