How’s your week going?
In case you missed last week’s email, the Quit Sugar Summit is just around the corner. Make sure to sign up for the free Quit Sugar Summit.
The summit is 100% virtual and 100% free.
Over 60 of the most famous, knowledgeable, forward-thinking MD’s Ph.D.’s, scientists, researchers, and authors on the globe will share their cutting-edge research and success working with real people at reversing diabetes, losing weight, and taking their lives back.
In this powerful online event, you’ll discover:
Plus, you’ll discover
FDA THREATENS TO BAN NAC.
FDA declared NAC is not a legal dietary supplement. In 1963, NAC was approved as a drug and per federal law, any substance approved as a drug before it was sold as a supplement cannot be sold as a supplement.
But why now?
Maybe because NAC may protect the body from toxins (helps to detox heavy metals and support kidney/liver function).
May because NAC supports the immune system.
You see N-Acetyl-Cysteine is a precursor for Glutathione, the master antioxidant in the body. In one study, NAC supplementation restored nearly all-natural killer cells (part of the immune system).
Or maybe because NAC helps to relieve symptoms of respiratory conditions.
NAC can act as an antioxidant and expectorant, loosening mucus in the airways. As an antioxidant, NC can support glutathione levels in the lung and reduce inflammation in the bronchial tubes and lung tissue.
NAC supplementation has been used to support COPD symptoms and lung decline.
One study showed that 600 mg of NAC (2x a day) significantly improved lung function symptoms of COPD.
Chronic bronchitis can also benefit from NAC.
Or maybe it’s because NAC can help with glutamate in the brain (neurotransmitter). NAC has been used to support mental health imbalances.
Or maybe because NAC is used for excess acetaminophen usage (Tylenol).
Or maybe it’s because NAC may prevent free radical damage and reduce oxidative stress and chronic inflammation (one adverse, downstream effect of the J A B).
Or maybe it’s because it can reduce thyroid antibodies, promote gut health, eliminate bad bacteria, and enhance bone formation.
Who knows… (I can make guesses — there is speculation that anti-inflammatory drugs are pending to be released, that provide similar support as NAC. Inflammation is one adverse effect of long covid and vaccine effects.)
Until then, you can find NAC at the NwJ Store (for increased needs) or you can eat more meat for the precursors of NAC and Glutathione.

Take the Red Pill. (Upcoming CATG episode, coming soon!)
WHAT CAN WE DRINK ON A MEAT-BASED DIET?
In this week’s Cutting Against the Grain episode, Laura and I talk about beverages on a carnivore diet. Yes, ideally we drink just clean water but this is a podcast all about real talk and real life.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Dom D’Agostino about so many topics in the keto and carnivore space. In part one of this two-part interview, we talk about:
What was fascinating about this conversation is the discussion on overnutrition. Dom works with athletes who showed high levels of vitamin B12, iron and vitamin A on a carnivore diet.
You can hear the discussion around excess nutrition, here. It’s definitely satisfying to hear that other practitioners see hypervitaminosis in their patients, students, and clients.
If you piece his information on how ketones are produced from the liver and having good liver health is imperative to be in ketosis, it becomes apparent why too much nutrition can impair the liver that stores these extra nutrients (vitamin A, B12, iron, and more). Without liver health, we don’t have health.
If you don’t feel well on a carnivore or meat-based diet, one factor can be hypervitaminosis: we can be overdoing nutrients. You can read some of my research here and here.
Time will tell and frankly, I hope I’m more wrong than right.
Stay tuned for part 2 of the interview with Dom D’Agostino.
He shares why he doesn’t think a carnivore diet is ideal and why overnutrition is even dangerous with cancer. The NwJ podcast will be out on Monday and the YouTube video will be released Tuesday.
In other news, I’m excited to share that we have uploaded all the Nutrition with Judy social media microblog posts on our Article section of the website. If I had more time, I’d pretty it up but following the 80/20 rule, I know it’s better to have the content out there.
You can find all the social media posts, with all graphics, to download and share, here.
You can find my full articles (blogs), here.
We will continue to upload the social media posts in batches so I hope this allows you to share the graphics more easily.
A very similar Pinterest page is coming soon that will have pins and boards based on categories (like gut health, mental health, carnivore, etc.)
I hope all these access points will provide you what you need to eat a meat-based diet successfully and that also can give you the ability to share bite-sized carnivore tips with your loved ones.
I know not everyone can work with me and not everyone can even afford my book (or have the time to read). I hope these microblogs can give you the tools to take your health into your own hands.
It is imperative, now more than ever, to get to optimal health. No one cares for you to be in better health than you. And if you understand that, it’s time to take your health into your own hands.
And eating meat-based is the best thing you can do for your health. I wrote Carnivore Cure to prove why.
Lastly, the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, to be called Comirnaty. I get a lot of questions about the vaccine. I wrote a long article before the vaccines came out but most of my thoughts have not changed. You can read my article here. You can also watch one of the most balanced roundtable discussions I’ve heard on the vaccine, here.
If you have the time, I’d encourage you to watch the roundtable discussion. I’d watch it, especially if you’re on the fence about the vaccine or if you’ve received the vaccine doses. There are preventative and post-vaccine supports mentioned.
Don’t forget to reserve your spot for the Quit Sugar Summit. It’s one way you can start taking your health into your own hands.
Our youngest son earned his second stripe in jiujitsu this week so we are celebrating at Fogo today! Okay fine, it’s my excuse to get all-you-can-eat meat.
Have a good week!
with ♥️ and hope for healing,
