    AMP #269 Why I Only Eat Meat with Dr. Paul Saladin‪o‬ - Aubrey Marcus Podcast

    Ok I've finally got some clarity on the Carnivore situation that had been bugging me.

    This is a phenomenal podcast and shed so much light, and really gave me the answers that were already in my mind but finally confirmed them.

    This guy isn't a Carnivore extremist lunatic... he clearly understands the Goal is to get well and optimise.

    What I like is that he constantly refers back to Nature.

    I can see that our Ancestors didn't grow Vegetables, and most of them (like Broccoli and Cauliflower) are like Hybrid creations.

    Paradoxically, our Ancestors and modern tribes do eat fruit and berries and Honey.

    So, this guy seems to be along the same lines in that he personally eats 100 grams of carbohydrates from Honey every day. This blew my mind, I've been constantyl drawn to Honey the last few months. It's anti-bacterial/ fungal/ viral properties are epic. Also, it isn't actually Plant food - it's Carnivore. It's extremely unique, and Tribal Humans love it.

    We clearly need Carbs, and I personally turn into a lunatic when I'm Zero carb.... so I'm going to go experiement with (As Paul suggests) very small amounts of Fruits such as Berries (trying to find local actually coming from trees, I doubt I'll know the names of these or recognise but I'm gonn ask the locals) but not imported and agriculture strawberries/ blueberries but I'll see what I can get.

    Gonna continue Avocado as I feel good on it. I also gonna try some Raw Honey - see how I do with that. Starting with a little bit and building up. Paul doesn't chase Ketones and eats 100g of Carbs from Honey - respect that.

    I've also backed off the Anti-fungals and my skin is clearing up. The Mold Toxicity is clearing slowly, but I have to be patient - everytime I try and clear too much I get worse, a steady small amount seems to be ideal (Charcoal etc.).

    Also using Young Living Essential Oils - a pack of Frankincense, Peppermint, Valor and lots of others. I absolutely love these things they are phenomenal. They are absolutely incredible and put me into such different states.

    That's important - because so much of what I experience is due to the Electrical State my Central Nervous System is in. The Sun changes this, as does Magnetism, as does Deuterium, but so do Smells and Sounds..... So Essential Oils and Meditation (Joe Dispenza) has been a profound addition to my life. On the outside nothing has really changed, but inside I am changing enormously and learning so much.
  3. Also been tracking Vitamin D.... the Dminder app is so good for this.

    I'm making sure to get 20,000 iu's of Vitamin D per day, I really really see the difference between getting " a couple hours " and really being in the high UV all day long.

    Not gonna lie I was sleeping on the power of the Sun and didn't realise - I've stepped up my game big time here with the Sun.

  5. Podcast comign this week. Finally realised I don't do well with Insta and FB posts but I actually do way better Talking and Socialising and this is how I come off best. Most of my writing is good but my style is intense and often difficult for people. I also don't enjoy it as much as I enjoy talking and discussing and socialising. Especially in 2021 with this globalist elite plot to separate us all, it's imperative we connect in every way possible.

    I'll post a link once it is all set up.

    Website coming too.

    Hmm... I would be careful with long time carnivore, to not accumulate too much iron, which is very bad idea.... Especially if you add sugar like honey, which makes the body assimilate even more iron.
    I would do blood donation as often as possible if doing carnivore. This is the only intelligent way IMO today. I did not know this before, but if you do not bleed on carnivore, it is very serious risk to accumulate way too much iron, which is really bad idea especially in our modern world. Bad thing is, it takes times before the symptoms appear. Can take many years. It is a slow process.

    If doing carnivore I would do heavy fish and eggs, which is not a problem when it comes to iron.

    "I've been constantyl drawn to Honey the last few months. It's anti-bacterial/ fungal/ viral properties are epic."

    There's lots of information about propolis being good for the immune system.

    I've bought it from this business; good price if you're okay with waiting for shipping from Siberia:

    ($1.50/10 grams)

    I'm kinda joking about recommending it to you in Mexico when it's from Siberia; it's an example of how inexpensive it can be though. Maybe there's a beekeeper local to you who'd be a better person to get it from.

    You can eat little bits of the propolis, dissolve in in lukewarm water, or break it into pieces and put it in a bottle of vodka to make a tincture.

    And bee bread a.k.a perga:

    ($6/100 grams)

    This is bee pollen -- edit: and honey or nectar -- that the bees fermented with their saliva. It's what they make the pollen into for their food. It's more digestible and nutritious than the bee pollen. It can be eaten the way it is, dissolved in lukewarm water, or made into a tincture like the propolis.

    But bee pollen can also be made more digestible by fermenting it in water. Raw bee pollen has sugars and bacteria and stuff, stuff so that when it's mixed into water it'll ferment, depending on the proportion of it to the water; my experience is it needs to be at least a few tablespoons of pollen per quart of water. The business Glory Bee sells 5 lb buckets of organic bee pollen from Spain for a good price.

    Information about bee bread being good for the immune system is less common than information about bee pollen, but because bee bread is pollen fermented by the bees' saliva and is more digestible and nutritious, probably any information about pollen helping the immune system will apply to bee bread too.

    Also, bee subpestilence a.k.a. podmore is dead whole bees collected from the hive; that can be ground easily in a mortar and pestle and put in vodka to make a tincture that has lots of things people say are good for the immune system, including little bits of bee venom.

    ($3/40 grams)

    I made a tincture with all three propolis, perga, podmore mixed in it, and drink the fermented bee pollen drink; both feel very healthy.

    I've read that somehow the mixture of things in propolis make it so that bacteria, fungus, etc don't develop resistance to it. So trying it and using it consistently probably wouldn't make a fungal problem worse. And if the fungus is something the immune system is trying to use symbiotically but that's slowed, stuck, or disregulated somehow, maybe the propolis (and others?) would speed up, regulate, the immune system's symbiotic use of the fungus and also help the immune system stop using it in ways it's not useful (already or when it becomes not useful) -- maybe help regulate the immune system's symbiosis with the fungus and not cause anti-symbiotic problems from the fungus developing excessively self-interested resistance that would change how the immune system is able to use it symbiotically..?

  10. Hahahaha I wasn't ignoring her, she's my baby don't worry.

    I still got lots of Sun, but in November and December it was raining all the fucking time and I couldn't efficiently work outside. So I ended up taking breaks at midday. I assumed that 1-2 hours in December would be ok during the day...... I was wrong, when I checked the app, maybe you only make 5000 iu's. Which just isn't enough.

    I also was in the Jungle, so it didn't rise above the trees until about 9am, and then disappeared after 3pm behind trees..... I thought I was ok cause you still get the light by being outside at those times, but it wasn't directly irradiating me. But, it wasn't until I moved to this place and I have a rooftop that allows me to see the Sun from 7am to 7pm.... that I could get those parts of the day while being naked that I remembered the difference. That late day Sunlight from 5-7pm is absolutely ridiculous. I have noticed that I get massive influxes of ingenious thought and ideas, I remember things. More so than the morning light. I don't know if there is something that it is doing to me at that time that causes more of those thoughts?

    The living in Jungle with no non native EMF was the focus, because I'd been living in the town with EMF and getting 6-7 hours of Strong Sun and I was feeling bad, so I had to go and experiment with that and it has taught me a lot.

    Many people won't understand this, but maybe you will.... I think sometimes we must walk through the darkest of places, so we can find the Light, the wisdom that comes from it is more valuable than any gift you can give me.

  11. To make 20,000 iu's per day on the app I have to be outside naked from 11am through til 3pm in January.

    If it's cloudy, then even longer. This is what I didn't quite realise..... the UV gets quite low here for a while.

  12. Man thank you for your response that was a wealth of information. I like it all. I have questions......... and yes I have sooo many people trying to sell me Honey on the beach down here it's crazy. There is a dedicated Honey shop where I used to live. There's so much down here, I'm gonna try a few out and see what feels best.

    So what is Propolis and what is Honey, the differences?

    I thought all honey was produced from Bee saliva fermenting the pollen, no?

    Like essentially Honey is Bee Vomit lol...

    Regarding the Fungus... yeah I will have to see how it reacts when I consume it tomorrow. Becuase yeah it is sugars and that will feed Candida, but also, if I'm removing all these Oxalates and Lectins and bullshit from Vegetables that perhaps my Immune System will just be way better off.

    Or perhaps my Candida is gone, and really my remaining issues are just from eating these Plant Toxins?

    Or 3rd option - the Honey is sugar but so anti-fungal the Candida can't use it like you suggested!

    We will see..............

    I don't know what I'm talking about. I read a couple books about beekeeping several months ago and forgot a lot -- Keeping Bees in Horizontal Hives by Georges de Layens and Keeping Bees With a Smile by Fedor Lazutin and Leo Sharashkin. These quotes that don't have a link before it are from the Layens book.

    Honey's made from nectar and honeydew.

    "Bees don't only collect sugary liquids from flowers.

    In the spring, in a field of vetch, we might be surprised to see large numbers of worker bees busy with their harvest, even though not a single flower has bloomed there yet.

    Let's walk closer: we see that the foragers are using their proboscis to gather the numerous droplets of nectar that form at the base of this plant's leaves, in the small hollows located on those peculiar formations which botanists refer to as stipules.

    This nectar is more abundant than that of many flowers, and it proves extremely useful to bees in early spring.

    In summer, in the forest, we can also often hear an intense buzzing sound that reaches as far as the upper branches of oaks, birches, beeches, poplars, lindens, firs, and many other trees.

    Approaching the lower branches, we can see numerous bees harvesting a sugary liquid on the surface of the leaves; this is honeydew -- an important resource for bees during hot weather in many forested regions."



    "...from time to time a worker bee returns home with her baskets filled with two small balls of a resinous substance, translucent, and extremely sticky. This isn't pollen, but something called propolis. Bees use this substance as a kind of putty for strengthening honeycomb or plugging cracks, or even to create a kind of varnish to coat the inside of their hive. Bees gather the resins and gummy substances that make up propolis from the buds of various trees, not from flowers.

    Primarily, one can see bees gathering this substance -- and sometimes even separating the scales of the buds that are coated with it -- from poplars, alders, birches, willows, elms, pines, firs, and other trees."


    "Deciduous trees excrete a waxy resin which coats their newly formed buds in the spring. These tender buds are protected with this resin coating which is anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. The bees collect this substance from the tree buds and use it in their hives. Propolis varies greatly in it's properties and composition based on the variety of deciduous trees the bees are collecting it from and this variety also effects the color of the propolis.

    The tree resin is not used in the hive in it's original form when collected by the bees. The bees process the tree resin in their mouths and then, almost magically the tree resin is concentrated into an array of least 180 different compounds which have been identified so far. There is a lot of research about the health benefits of propolis on the web...

    A newly initiated large-scale field study by researcher Michael Simone-Finstrom at North Carolina State University and the Department of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania has found convincing evidence that propolis in the nest can influence honey bee immunity. The researchers noted. 'It appears that honey bees have co-opted the defenses produced by plants as a type of "social immunity" or colony-level defense against pathogens.'

    Imagine how vulnerable a colony of bees are when a hive is moist and warm, making it vulnerable to fungus, molds and bacteria. The hive also has sugars and proteins stored in cells, which is food for a myriad of creatures big and small. The potential of spreading pathogens around the colony is very high, with tens of thousands of bees living in very close quarters and field bees coming back into the hive after foraging. So the bees have developed a very important behavior of collecting propolis and coating every surface of the hive with it...

    The propolis is anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, the bees use it against pathogenic microorganisms, but somehow it is not intended to kill everything in the hive. There exists a microbial forest in a healthy hive and each hive has a unique microbiology or fingerprint. Somehow these good microbes are beneficial to the health of the colony. They keep each other in check. If a chemical treatment is put into the hive, then this delicate balance is disrupted and bee diseases emerge. We need to let the bees manage these microbes, viruses, fungus's and parasites through the use of propolis, not the very recent use of chemical treatments."


    Honey and pollen in the hive

    "Honey cells

    At the very top of the honeycomb, and moving down the sides to both right and left, we see cells that are sealed with an extremely thin cap, often slightly depressed, as if one had pressed down on it with one's fingertip. Let's remove this cap with our fingernail. Underneath we find a cell filled with a thick and fragrant liquid. We taste it -- it's very sweet. This is honey that the bees have stored in these cells and sealed off with a cap referred to as capping... Honey is preserved by its high sugar content, low moisture, low Ph, as well as enzymes from bee stomachs that convert part of nectar into hydrogen peroxide... The bees will only cap a cell when it's sufficiently full and has reached the desired sugar concentration.

    Pollen cells

    Here and there, scattered among the cells filled with honey, or further down, we can see other cells, far fewer in number, which we can easily recognize by their colored, opaque contents. These are cells containing pollen. Generally, these cells are not capped."


    Pollen and honey for their food

    "We can see bees returning home carrying two small bundles -- usually orange or yellow, sometimes pink, white, or various other colors -- attached to their back legs. These balls are made of pollen that the bees have gathered from flower stamens and stuck to their legs to carry back to the hive. The pollen is used in the hive as food for the young still developing bees."

    "Development of a worker bee

    Three days after an egg is laid, it has transformed into a kind of small legless worm. This is a young larva, which the workers now begin to feed by placing at the bottom of the cell a kind of jelly which they make in their stomach by mixing water, honey, and pollen."

    [This book was originally published in 1897. When he says bees use pollen for food, maybe the differences between the kinds of food for the bees wasn't as known then; maybe it was common then for beekeepers to call bee bread -- what we now call pollen the bees prepared for a kind of food -- just pollen with the implication that the pollen can be mixed with other things depending how the bees are using it. For example the "mixing water, honey, and pollen" that's fed to all larva is royal jelly, so if by "water" he meant what we now call the bees' secretions, then maybe when that book was written instead of giving the different mixtures different names it was just "honey", "pollen", and "water".

    "mixing water, honey, and pollen" to feed larva:

    "All bee larvae (female and male) receive royal jelly after the egg hatches. Royal jelly is a protein-rich food made in the glands of worker bees and placed in cells just before the egg hatches. Initially the cell with a young larva is mass provisioned. A pool of royal jelly is kept replenished in the bottom of the cell and the C-shaped larvae simply lie in a pool of its food. After 2.5 to 3 days, however, the diet of the worker and drone larva changes to a mixture of pollen and nectar and food is not so generously supplied. This is called progressive-provisioning. The queen larva remains on a diet of royal jelly, continued in generous supply, her entire larval life."

    But when that says the larva are fed pollen and nectar, pollen and nectar are two things bee bread's made with. So when Layens said "water, honey, and pollen" he probably meant bee bread made from the bees' saliva, honey/nectar, and pollen. Look at the next square brackets after the third big paragraph of the quote below.]

    "How much honey should be left for winter reserves?

    The amount of honey that should be left to a hive for wintering is a very important question in beekeeping. If you don't leave your hives sufficient honey reserves, they may not survive the winter for lack of honey, and even if the colonies are still alive when winter is over, you'll often have to feed them during the spring. So resist the temptation to harvest too much honey; always leave the bees more than enough honey for the winter."


    More detailed about why they eat both honey and bee bread, and differences between pollen and bee bread


    "There are two principle foods that bees collect, nectar and pollen. The bees collect nectar to make an enzymatically-activated, partially fermented food called honey. And they collect pollen to make a lacto-fermented, enzymatically-activated food called bee bread. Yes, that's right, humans are not the only ones to purposefully ferment their foods. For bees, honey is their primary carbohydrate source and bee bread is their staple protein source.

    As a protein source bee pollen has great potential, but in its normal, raw form the pollen is neither sufficiently digestible or sufficiently nourishing for our bee friends. Pollen that has not properly fermented into bee bread is not digestible by honey bees. Part of the reason for this is that the pollen core is shrouded in a layer of cellulose, which neither bees nor humans can (generally speaking) open-up and digest very well. The other reason relates to many pollens having a protective, fairly indigestible coating of wax. As we are well aware, nature has her own defenses.

    So what is bee bread, and how is it made?

    Bee bread is an 'alchemical' bee creation made with around 25% honey or nectar, 70% pollen, and bee saliva, which, alongside the honey/nectar, inoculates the pollen with a broad range of natural probiotic bacteria and yeasts, all necessary to kickstart the essential act of fermentation and predigestion. The in-hive bees tightly pack the pollen into the comb-cells and intermix it with the other mentioned ingredients. After a few weeks a great transformation has taken place. The bee bread has been made.

    [So that's probably what the royal jelly paragraph above is talking about. Whatever, that's just for some kinds of bee larva; the point of this link's quote is that people can digest bee bread better than pollen, and fermenting pollen in water might not make it as digestible as if the bees ferment it but it's still better than just eating the pollen.]

    ...Bee Bread is also known as Ambrosia (food of the Gods) or Perga and has been used and revered for millenia.

    So how does Bee Pollen compare to Bee Bread?

    Probably the most important change concerns the protein. Not only has the protein quality improved - i.e. protein bioavailability is significantly enhanced, many proteins have been predigested into their constituent amino acids making absorption significantly easier. From the perspective of protein quality (digestibility), bee pollen simply can't touch bee bread.

    Inside bee bread many vitamins have also increased in value and Vitamin K is actually present for the first time. Both antioxidant concentrations and enzyme levels are also significantly elevated. What is more, much of the potent nutrient reserves in 'hibernation' within the pollen are now plentifully available, this is especially true of minerals such as zinc, magnesium and silica, which are often bound tightly within the cellulose portion of the pollen."

  15. Didnt' see this Inger.... I do lots of Shrimp, Fish and Eggs. I don't buy the "only Beef" narrative.... Jack's blogs teach us that anti-seafood narratives (even the heavy metal stuff) is bullshit.

    I'm not dogmatic. I'll do what works!! So I appreciate your info on Iron. But, I will say that we mechanisms to reduce Iron if it goes overboard. I also do not see any Hunter Gatherers having issues with Iron... what do you think is happening with them Inger? Or the current Carnivore community that are doing so well (Autoimmunity, Crohn's etc. completely reversed?)....

    I'm always trying to learn and I love to know what people think. I can't deny how good people are doing on this diet. Yet I also can't deny that many people are doing great with vegetables.

    Today I had Shrimp and Beef burgers that were made with Grass Fed beef + Eggs yolks (no whites, yuck) + Sea Salt + Honey.

    I also ate a load of Honey from the bottle, about 150g.

    Today i had the most energy and magnetism I've had in about 3 years.......... I had so many messages today and people reaching out to me I wasn't quite sure what to do with it all. So much magnetism I can't quite describe it. My Brain has felt ON FIRE.

    So many people reached out to me today. I always see this is as a measure of my Redox - my magnetism and my ability to manifest and attract. The Universe only gives you what you can handle, and today I could handle A LOT.

    I've not had 100g of Glucose in any form (honey) in a long time and felt that good.

    Will see if this is just placebo or 1st day effect.... see how I feel in a week or so.

    But so far... VERY IMPRESSED!

    yep, I'm one who does, though growing my own is i feel very important, it wasn't till we as a family stopped cooking vegetables and started eating raw that saw a huge improvement in health, that was 15 years ago and was the last time I had influenza, still had the odd cold till I stepped it up notch getting my skin in the game just in the last few years

    Love these ^^

    I think it’s important for us to walk through the darkness every year. It is a gift. And your right, I love how the Universe and Mother Nature bless us with what we need exactly when we need it. Light throughout the day and darkness throughout the night.... 12 months and 4 seasons. We are similar to a tree. There is a reason for the trees to experience loss in the cold darkness of winter and a reason for the rebirth with the rainwater in warm spring sun. But when we realize we are the Star in the darkness it changes everything.....because You are Light!! And if you are light you are never really in the dark. A beautiful Synchronized symphony!!
