Mikhaila Peterson on curing autoimmune disease and depression with the carnivore diet

Mikhaila Peterson, a 27 year old mother of one, runs the blog “Don’t Eat That”. She was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis at age 7, severe depression at age 10 and idiopathic hypersomnia at age 21. She had multiple joints replaced at age 17. After years of research trying to solve her autoimmune problems, she went paleo/low carb and eventually ended up on the beef, salt and water diet which resolved her conditions. She’s now off of all medications and in complete remission. She’s raising awareness about the options that are still out there when people can’t seem to get their autoimmune symptoms completely under control.
