I had been chronically ill with a number of different illnesses since I was 13, including asthma, periodic depression, chronic bronchitis, and skin and digestive disorders. The asthma was particularly severe. I made dozens of trips to the emergency room with asthma attacks that could have killed me. I received extensive medical treatment, which only gave temporary relief, while the underlying illness continued to get worse. I was exposed to toxic chemicals twice at work in 1998, landing in the emergency room both times. After the second time, my lungs were in such bad shape that I could not work. After a number of tests, the doctors told me that I would never get better, and that my lungs would never heal. I realized at that moment that the medical profession could not help me. I also realized that I had an important decision to make. I could either accept the medical death sentence I had just been given, or I could refuse to accept it.
I refused to accept the medical death sentence. I had to find another way to get well. I had been an attorney for a number of years, and had developed excellent research skills. I used these skills to learn everything I could about medicine and healing. I soon realized that the medical profession was focused on profit, rather than making people well. I learned that the key to health was nutrition. We literally are what we eat, and a good diet is the foundation of health and healing.
Today, more than 11 years after the medical death sentence, I am in the best health of my adult life. All of my illnesses and symptoms are gone. I enjoy robust good health, and my powerful immune system keeps me well. My breathing is fine. What did I do? I avoided toxic factory foods and medication, and ate a traditional, natural diet based on the teachings of Dr. Weston A Price and the Weston A. Price Foundation.
As part of this process, I made the switch to grassfed and grass finished meat. I totally ruined the first grassfed meat I cooked. It was so bad I could not chew it, let alone swallow it. I once again used my research skills to learn how grassfed meat was cooked in the past, reading over 300 books in the process. After much trial and error, I succeeded in adapting these methods to the modern kitchen, and cooked grassfed meat that was not only tender, but absolutely delicious. I have used this knowledge to write Tender Grassfed Meat: Traditional Ways to Cook Healthy Meat and Tender Grassfed Barbecue: Traditional, Primal and Paleo. These books make it easy to prepare grassfed meat that is tender and delicious.
In this website, I will share more of what I know about cooking grassfed meat and the health blessings of this wonderful food. I will also share what I have learned about becoming healthy and staying healthy.
