Question: Speaking about carnation being very high in lamb & especially mutton, a lime curry may be a good idea. Homemade though, to be sure one is getting enough lamb. A friend of mine had extreme pain in her hands & could no longer embroider for 2 years. I found in an old health food book that the juice of 1/2 a lime taken daily would alleviate the problem. It did work for her. She went back to embroidery within a week and for 6 hours at a time with no pain. After a few months she discontinued the limes & the pain was back. So she stays on limes now. But you must not heat the lime juice & it must be taken within 20 minutes, as the chemicals break down rapidly after the lime is squeezed. She mixed it with a very large glass of water to avoid adding any sugar. It appears that limes & mutton may be needed for nerve & muscle pains. Maybe our ancestors knew a lot more than we give them credit for- when mixing these foods together.
Answer 1: Carnation is destroyed by over-heating. So eat your mutton rare. You’re nearly right about “our ancestors”: the nearest there is now to a Stone Age diet, according to some food allergy people, is lamb and pears.
Answer 2: While I am following the dietary discussion with interest, I believe there is a lot more to it than that! Personally I’ve always eaten plenty of red meat, cheese, yoghurt, fruit etc and have approx ½ pint of milk a day – granted it is semi-skimmed! I’d say I have a good well balanced diet and yet have been suffering now for about 7 years! I believe I am recovering albeit very slowly, but I can’t say that I’ve found any specific thing or collection of things that have had a noticeable effect. Just lots of gentle stretching and a better keyboard! Of course it if it seems to work for you then great and if anything comes up that I haven’t tried then what the hell I’ll give it a go!
Answer 3: From what I have been reading about nerves, it seems we need the fats & oils found in meat, seeds & nuts. I imagine there is a lot of chemicals in our foods that work together to keep our nerves healthy. I don’t know if the medical profession really knows what a “balanced diet” really is yet. As most of us develop many diseases even though we eat really well.
Look in www.ars-grin.gov/duke/
now; after you look at all the chemical components of all the listed foods, can we really come up with a “balanced diet”? It seems quite complicated.
