The Carnivore Diet

Mikhaila Peterson talks about using bone broth after fasts in a stream she posted on September 14th, 2019. It is easer to stomach as it's less dense. She also discusses many useful points, ideas and experiences worth noting, such as how she still had C. difficile colitis after going carnivore due to high Clostridium levels. She used a microbiome protocol she doesn't share in the video, though may have shared since, and says it'll shock people when she reveals it. Curious if it's fecal transplant?

I don't know what the microbiome thing is, but Mikhaila has mentioned that she has done many fecal translplants

I have been listening a podcast called: Fundamental Health Podcast by Paul Saladino, and I think his approach is very helpful for people who want to follow a full carnivore diet. He is going to release a book called : The Carnivore Code.

This is his webpage:


Dr. Saladino is the leading authority on the science and application of the carnivore diet. He has used this diet to reverse autoimmunity, chronic inflammation, and mental health issues in hundreds of patients, many of whom had been told their conditions were untreatable. In addition to his personal podcast, Fundamental Health, he can be found featured on numerous podcasts including The Minimalists, Bulletproof Radio, The Dr. Gundry Podcast, The Ben Greenfield Podcast, Dr. Mercola, Health Theory, Mark Bell’s Power Project, and many others. He is a featured blogger for Psychology Today and is currently writing a book titled, “The Carnivore Code: Unlocking the secrets to optimal health by returning to our ancestral diet.”

Dr. Saladino completed residency in psychiatry at the University of Washington and is a certified functional medicine practitioner through the Institute for Functional Medicine. He attended medical school at the University of Arizona where he worked with Dr. Andrew Weil focusing on integrative medicine and nutritional biochemistry. Prior to medical school, Dr. Saladino worked as a physician assistant in Cardiology. It was during this time that he saw first hand the shortcomings of mainstream western medicine with its symptom focused, pharmaceutical based paradigm. He decided to return to medical school with the hope of better understanding the true roots of chronic disease and illness, and how to correct and reverse these. He now maintains a private practice in San Diego, California, and sees clients from all over the world virtually.

When he is not researching connections between nutritional biochemistry and chronic disease, he can be found in the ocean searching for the perfect wave, cultivating mindfulness, or spending time with friends and family.

Can't seem to find the original post, but she mentioned recently about how her C. diff issues went away after doing an oral fecal transplant protocol.

Basically she put the transplant into pills and took them orally because her C. diff didn't respond to the regular transplant protocol and thinking that this suggested her infection was actually in the small intestine decided to give the oral route a try. From what she said it actually worked, so good for her.

Can't say I'm interested in that particular protocol, though.. :whistle:

Thanks @PERLOU . Very interesting article.

The very important diversity of tribes with their own language and custom, forces me to generalize and take the most common. This article will not accurately reflect Inuit customs, which are too numerous, but will provide a global vision of their food culture.

I- Presentation of the people
1. Who are they? Who are they?

Before I expand on the subject of Inuit food, I will first introduce you to this people

Inuit are a group of Aboriginal peoples who share cultural similarities and a common ethnic origin.


1) A mother and her baby in the kitchen

Indeed, the Inuit were a nomadic hunting people, the origin of this people is from Eastern Siberia, in present-day Russia.

About 8 to 6000 years ago, groups of nomadic hunters crossed the Bering Strait and continued their journey along the northern coasts of present-day Canada to Greenland.


2) Inuit Migration Flows
These individuals did not move without reason, they were simply following in the footsteps of marine mammals, caribou and also muskoxen. Only caloric sources present at these latitudes.

They live mainly in the Arctic regions of North America and Greenland, but also in eastern Siberia. There are currently about 150,000 Inuit in the various tribes. The most important tribes are the Eskimos (this term is pejorative for Inuit populations) with Nunavik and Nunavut in northern Canada, there are also the Kalaallit in Greenland, and the Yupiks in Alaska and Siberia. (Map below)


3) Distribution of the different tribes

2. Their eating habits

On average, 97% of the Inuit diet is made up of animal products and the remainder of plant products during the summer. The caloric intake is distributed on average as follows: with 30 to 40% in the form of protein, 50 to 75% fat and the rest in the form of carbohydrates. Almost all carbohydrates come from animal muscle glycogen, and a very small part from berries in summer. Their living environment obviously prevents all types of cultures.

3. Hunting and conservation techniques

For animals such as seals and whales, although they live in the water, Inuit call this hunting. This is due to the fact that they use mainly the harpoon. To catch a seal, the technique is to find a hole in the ice, wait for the animal to come to the surface to breathe and then harpoon it. More recently with the arrival of snowmobiles and guns, it has become easier to hunt seals when the animal is resting. For the hunting of birds they made slingshots. As for bear hunting, it was useful to them to have warm and thick skins, to make clothes and tents. To ensure a regular food supply, the Inuit hunt only as necessary and limit it to preserve the abundance of animals and thus avoid famine.

4) Ancestral hunting technique

5) Modern seal hunter

Conservation methods are at the very least unconventional for any other population living further south. Indeed, drying for edible skins, fermentation for fats and meat pheasant farming were and are frequently used conservation techniques.



Opposite, a modern dwelling, of a settled family from Greenland. We can observe many pieces of meat drying in the open air.



II) Food specificity
1. Power supply

Their traditional cuisine is mainly composed of raw foods from fish, marine and terrestrial mammals. However, you can cook broth and caribou meat or polar bear meat (especially given to dogs), seal meat from which they ate everything, such as blood, brains, eyes, etc. Depending on what the environment has to offer (ice floes, tundra, etc.).

The most frequently caught fish species are Arctic char, trout and salmon.

Marine mammals, eaten frequently, are the most common species of marine mammals. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
