Everything in Moderation; that's one of Adrienne's biggest pet peeves, and that of our guest, in fact they share a lot of pet peeves in common...Last week's guest was Dr. Shawn Baker, a supporter and practitioner of the carnivore diet. This week we continue with Phil Escott, a fellow carnivore who dedicates his time spreading the word and saving vegans and vegetarians. In this first half the interview we'll find out what he does, what a low deuterium diet is, the contradiction that is vegan carnivores, and how how to prevent diets turning into cults. Don't miss the second half of this meaty episode!
Phil is a health writer, blogger, personal trainer, novelist and drummer from the UK who has spent many years in the health and fitness industry, running a gym, writing for many magazines and training hundreds of clients successfully. Due to a crippling bout of inflammatory arthritis in 2010, which he reversed by natural means including an ancestral/seasonal low carb diet, addressing EMFs and circadian mismatches and emotional balancing, further intense study revealed many secrets of healing normally hidden behind the misleading conventional medical and health dogma.
Reversing so-called “incurable” illness has taken him to knowledge he would never otherwise have discovered; it has deepened his relationships with himself, his loved ones and fellow humans in general, and given him a deep confidence that all is very much well with the world. It takes some time to discover, but illness on any level is a true gift, which modern society tells us to ignore by blotting all the painful but essential symptoms with dangerous pharmaceuticals. Through illness we can read all we need to know about what we need to heal at a deeper level than just physically.
He has also published three books including an Amazon Kindle bestseller on healing autoimmune conditions and his own journey in detail called Arthritis – The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me with foreword by well-known neurosurgeon and medical visionary, Dr. Jack Kruse.
