My name is Kara. I have been following a Paleo/Primal Lifestyle since July of 2013. I found the Lifestyle during my own personal search for answers to my ailing health. Although I had been unhealthy for some time, it wasn’t until I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia that I began to seek alternate methods of healing since I had heard Western medications did little to help.
This was also when I discovered I had an embarrassing and debilitating autoimmune disorder that is little known, called Hidradenitis suppurativa. For years, I had been suffering with skin outbreaks, and thought my body was simply hypersensitive to everything. No matter what I did, no matter how much I scrubbed, showered, cleansed, took antibiotics, it never got better. It only got worse and when I came across Tara Grant’s article about it, I was convinced that this was what I had, too.
And it was.
The article, simply changed my life. I took her advice, and began to follow her advice, and in about a month, my boils were gone. My fibromyalgia pain was gone, and my horribly dry eyes and mouth were now normal. I could actually quench my thirst and no longer felt like I had sand in my eyes all the time. I later learned this was something called Sjogren‘s Syndrome. My energy was fantastic, I could sleep, and I felt like a human being. I was a brand new woman who now realized what I had literally been missing MY ENTIRE LIFE because never, not once, had I ever felt this fantastic.
It’s taken me some time, but I am ready to share my journey and my experience in full detail – without shame, without embarrassment, without fault or fear of what any other human being will say. Why? Because I care. I care about you. I care about humanity and I care about life and living it to the fullest. I am Primal Betty – the Essence of Living Well.
