My Family's Experience with The Primal Diet

Johnson Family - August 2009

I started the Primal Diet by Aajonus Vanderplanitz about 5-1/2 years ago.  I practiced it religiously for about 8 months, until I found an always-evolving variation that works very well for me.

Most of the food that I eat is still raw, and the majority of my calories still come from raw animal fat, but my diet has evolved to be more instinctual.   I eat less protein, and add things that I like such as homemade chocolate and sprouted nut butters.  Some days I eat more food and some days I eat less.  I also go through periods of eating a lot of the same type of food, and then find that those foods don’t appeal to me for awhile.

I enjoy a healthy, youthful body, boundless energy, joyful being and abundant creativity.

I ate a lot of raw food (including eggs, chicken and fish) and an abundance of raw fat while pregnant with my one year old – and had a drug free, painless birth.  Of course I also practiced Hypnobabies which is a technique for relaxing the mind.

My one year old eats plenty of raw food including breast milk, and has never had anything more than very mild (hardly noticeable) detoxification.  Signs of diaper rash have also been very mild, short lived and cleared naturally – without any creams or medications.

I offer my kids raw food including milk, kefir, ice cream (eggs, cream, milk & honey), chicken, beef, fish, and homemade chocolate and sprouted nut butters.  Sometimes they eat it and other times they refuse.

I don’t force this diet on my kids.  They learn from my and my husband’s example, and by what feels good to them through trial and error – just like we did.

However, when my 7 year old was only a year old, he was sickly because I followed conventional protocol for birthing, immunizations and medication.  From the time he was 2 until about 5 he ate an almost all raw diet and has stayed away from doctors – which has healed him.

My 17 year old daughter knows from experience that raw food is ideal for promoting fitness and health, but at this time she chooses a mostly conventional diet and some of the “normal” health issues that accompany it.  Should she ever decide to regain optimal health, she has the tools necessary to achieve it.

My husband eats a lot of raw food, but tends to eat cooked foods a bit more than I do.  He is strong, healthy, youthful and energetic.  He is also much calmer and even tempered – which is great for our relationship!!

Vaccinations and Control

My family does not take vaccinations, we are not afraid of sick or diseased people, and we do not struggle with any serious illness.  In fact, even though we don’t use medication – our version of cold and flu is milder and shorter lived than those experienced by our more conventional friends.

It’s easy to see why so many of us still believe that our immunity can be enhanced artificially.  After all, we have been conditioned since our youth to believe medical doctors and scientists are the keepers of our health.

Corporate America has been feeding us a diet of fear, processed foods and drugs for a long time.  Some of us even believe that vaccinations are effective while also believing that contact with an unvaccinated person will cause a vaccinated person to become infected.  This notion instills fear and distrust of each other, and is just another way to promote more control for those in power.

The consensus that vaccines are able to ward off illness and disease really is just a paradigm of fear. It is fear in combination with the action of vaccines and denatured food that result in what we know as “incurable” disease.

The truth is that immunizations work to deteriorate, not enhance overall immune function.  While they can sometimes ward off a particular type of illness, vaccines are mostly ineffective and harmful to our bodies.

Whether or not we choose to vaccinate is a personal decision and one that may be competently made by anyone based on their own research and intuition.  But whatever we choose as individuals, we do not need government/corporations mandating our choices for anyone else.

Governmental support and promotion of vaccination is a blatant conflict of interest.  While we’re supposedly promoting a “war on drugs”, legal drugs are being pushed on us in order to keep us sick and dependent on government.

We the People have essentially become like peasants of Corporate America.   But the power of change is within each of us.  As more of us become aware that we are not victims, we will have fewer villains.

You Are Qualified!

You are already qualified to be fully aware around any subject that interests you.

The source of everything is the same energy that is within each of us in equal measure. Everything ever known in the past, present and future is available to everyone NOW. When we deliberately relax mental tension, release conditioned thought, and ask for awareness, more of that knowledge can be received and understood.

Feeling sets forth the vibratory pattern which is always matched in the physical. In this way, feeling interested in something, knowing we are intelligent and trusting that information will be made available opens us up for guidance and sets us on the path to manifesting whatever knowledge we seek.
