For Someone’s Sheila – Nutrition and Mental Illness

December 25, 2019

This is a video I’ve wanted to make from the
beginning, but didn’t have the courage to do it
It’s a video some personal struggles I had in my life, and it’s a video about a person
I loved very much, who passed away unexpectedly. I’m talking about my wife, her name was Sheila.
And this video is really dedicated to helping someone else who might have a Sheila, who’s
in the same situation as we were in. Now, I wasn’t able to help my Sheila as far
as getting her well so this video is dedicated to trying to help
someone else who might be in my situation. Here’s a picture of my Sheila when she was
young and happy and pretty. She was a force to be reckoned with, believe
me, she was full of energy and funny to the core.
She had a beautiful smile and a laugh that lit up the room. And more than anything she
loved kids. But something strange started to happen to
her a several years after this picture was taken.
She started to have panic attacks, and anxiety. Nightmares and paranoia. Severe Headaches
that would last for a couple days. It started slow at first, a few strange and
out of character behaviors, angry outbursts that cut off relationships with family and
friends. Missing work. But one day the bottom fell out, and her behavior
went way over the top. And From that day on, her life and our life
together was never the same. Doctors, medications, therapies became a way of life for us.
We became isolated, because I protected her from others. I didn’t want them to see how
sick she was or be offended by her behavior. We sought out medical treatment, went to the
so-called professionals and they, of coarse, medicated her to the point were most of her
bad behaviors went away. And most of her personality went away too.
She gained a tremendous amount of weight, which these medicines are notorious for causing. She was really not the same person I met years
before. She had periods where she was more normal, more like her old self, but basically
not that same energetic happy person She almost never laughed, unless she was able
to self-medicate You know I say this not to put her down, I’m
not putting her down for this aberrant behavior, I learned as many of you know who deal with
mental illness, that a people with mental illness tend to try to find any way they can,
any way, to feel normal again, so they can interact with people, and they can laugh,
and go out in public without panic attacks and sometimes they turn to prescription drugs
or alcohol, or they turn to some kind of thing we don’t approve of as a society, to try to
function more properly And Sheila of coarse realized this was a problem
and stopped doing that for the most part, but occasionally people with mental illness,
they do do these things. But that’s not really what this video is about
The reason I’m making this video is that people who are in a dark fearful place, they need
help and their families need help. And I feel like I let Sheila down, because
I didn’t know a lot of the things I know now. I want to give those things to you.
May help you, may not but to me, if I’d had this information, my
outcome might have been different. I’m not a doctor, I’m not trained in any medical
field, I’m just a working class guy, who’s lived
this life and done a lot of research on it And what I’m about to advise you is not a
risk to your health whatsoever In fact I believe it could be a salvation
for some of you. I’m certainly not advising anyone to stop
taking their medication, without the help of a trained licensed medical professional
people with mental illness, if they stop their medication without the aid of a trained medical
professional they are risking suicide, they are risking being put into a mental institution. Do not ever stop your medication without the
aid of a medical professional, licensed, a licensed medical professional. Mental Illness is such a mysterious and complicated
thing, it takes over the lives of the people who suffers from it and the people who care
for them. It’s so complicated, that we automatically
think the treatment for it must also be very complicated. But, what I’m about to tell you something
that’s not so complicated. I want to tell you a couple of little quick
stories: The first story is about British sailors in
the 1800’s. Did you know the British navy had a terrible
disease in their navy in the 1800’s. The disease was called scurvy, and it was a disease that
caused health problems from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet.
But come to find out, it was just a simple vitamin c deficiency. By adding a little lime
or lemon to the sailors rum ration, their “grog” the disease just went away or never
occurred to start with. I’m going to talk about just three vitamin
deficiencies that can cause severe, system wide health problems. I’m doing this to point
out the complicated body wide diseases are sometimes caused by a very simple nutritional
deficiency. Now I’m not talking about these diseases,
being an issue, I’m talking about them so you’ll understand even a small nutritional
deficiency can cause widespread body problems So the first one is Scurvy, of coarse Scurvy is simply a lack of vitamin C.
But being deficient in just this one vitamin can cause you to have problems all over your
body. Severe problems in the mind with anxiety and irritability, in the mouth with your gums
and loosening teeth, in the bones with severe bone pain, in the skin with rashes, little
red dots, rash dots and large purple bruise like patches on your extremities Another vitamin deficiency disease is BeriBeri
It’s simply a vitamin B1 (thiamine) deficiency. But, just like Scurvy, it causes body wide
health problems. It causes emotional problems, mental confusion,
swelling of the arms and legs, weakness, tingling in the hands and feet, and an irregular heart
beat. Pellegra is another simple vitamin deficiency.
It’s caused by not getting enough niacin ( and that’s one of the B vitamins) or tryptophan
(which is an amino acid, a build block of a protein)
Pellegra is the most interesting for my purposes here, because Pellegra causes Psychiatric problems
(such as anxiety, rapid mood changes, delusions, and hallucinations, headaches and fainting.
It also associated with the bone disease called osteoporosis, which causes your bones to become
weak and brittle. Now Why in the world would I tell you people
this stuff? These deficiency diseases. I’m telling you this because when it comes
to mental problems most of us have mixed up ideas. When someone is sick physically, we automatically
think of how to treat them with medicine. But when someone has anxiety, or mood swings,
or paranoia, or angry outbursts we think it’s a spiritual problem, we consciously know it’s
a medical issue, we know that in our mind, but in our heart and deepest feelings, we
think these are just something wrong with the persons soul.
It’s a behavior problem, It’s a spiritual problem.
But really it’s a physical problem. But these deficiency diseases let us know
that having poor nutrition can cause problems all over your body, both mental and physical. You know there’s a site here on the internet
which I hope you guys will visit. You can read all about people who have cured
themselves by simply changing their diet. They’ve wrote their story down and published
it online. It’s at a place called the Ancestral Weight
Loss Registry And you can read there, stories from real
people who’ve cured themselves from irritable bowel syndrome, skin problems of every stripe
and imagination, joint pain, I’m one that cured myself of that Listen, You’re caring for someone whose mentally
ill, and I’ve been in your situation, and believe me, Sheila and I we tried all the
medications and while they stopped almost all of Shiela’s bad behaviors, abnormal behaviors,
they did not improve her life. No one explained to me that mental illness
could be a nutritional problem. No one. Now, I’m not saying mental illness is a nutritional
problem, I’m saying it could be. And believe me this is not a far-fetched idea. Just being
deficient in one or two things can cause a host of problems, and people today DO NOT
eat the most nutritious foods anyway. Do you know even people who are 100 lbs overweight
could be starving to death for nutrition? Hunger is natures way of letting us know we
need nutrition. And guess who is hungry all the time?
The same people who have100’s of thousands of extra calories in the form of belly fat,
hanging around their belly. And yet they’re hungry.
Hugely fat and still hungry all the time. For more about that, watch my Butter Makes
Your Pants Fall Off video Listen, these people are hungry because they
are not getting the nutrition their body needs and they will remain hungry until they get
it, no matter how many calories of junk food they stuff themselves with, until they eat
what their body needs, they will remain hungry, sick and in pain.
And of coarse, there are those who never get fat, no matter what they eat. They can and
often are deficient in vitamins and minerals, and they will not be fat, but they will sick
and in pain and hungry and feeling bad even though they don’t get fat.
So this is not a fat vs. skinny problem, this is a nutritional problem Listen, you people who are dealing with someone
with a severe mental issue. you’ve tried what all the experts have told
you, but it really hasn’t solved your problem. It’s made it go down to where you can manage
it, but it hasn’t solved it. The person you love is medicated into submission
really, but that’s not what you wanted for them, and it’s certainly not what they want.
They want to live. Even if they’re suicidal, they wish they could live. You and they want
to be well and happy. They want to live and you want them to live.
You’ve saved your loved ones life, their existence, but the life and personality of that person
you love is really gone. You haven’t been able to save that part. What do you have to lose by using food as
medicine? Once again, I’m not telling anyone to stop taking your medicine. My Sheila stopped
taking her medicine without me knowing it, and it led to a bad situation for us, believe
me. I’m telling you to find out about Medical
Doctors who are using nutrition along with medicine to dramatically improve their own
life, because some of them are very sick or someone they love is very sick, and they’re
helping their patients with this knowledge This is not some far fetched crazy idea, if
taking a few vitamins can cured the diseases like we just talked about, what could it do
for your Sheila? If eating right has cured people of joint pain, diabetes and intestinal
illnesses, what could it do for your Sheila’s mental illness? Here online there’s a wonderful video from
Dr. Terry Wahl’s. I have a link here, so you can go to it. She is a doctor who has MS.
Her condition had gotten so bad she was actually in one of those motorized chair because she
couldn’t walk. She did the study and found out about nutrition. She has a program of
nutritional therapy for that’s geared toward helping people with MS.
But guess what, I bet any nutritional therapy that treats the whole body could also help
your Sheila or your Bob. Check her video out and learn just how much nutrition can change
your life. Go watch Dr. Mary Newport’s video here on
YouTube. She is a doctor who treats her Husbands Alzheimer’s with coconut oil and MCT oil
and a carefully planned diet. It’s remarkable what this therapy has done for him. I’ve heard
from people, even on my website that has talked about this same therapy for their relatives
with Alzheimer’s These are two doctors and there’s many more
that have used nutrition to treat some of the most severe, severe conditions Since my Butter video came out, I’ve heard
from people from all over the world. People who changed their diet and got rid of anxiety,
depression, paranoia, delusions, suicidal thoughts. People who got rid of joint pain,
I’m one of them. People who got rid of every symptom of diabetes. By changing their diet.
The list could go on and on. They did these things because food is medicine
and the best kind of food is fat, the right kind of fat. Some of you that’s going to make fun of me
for this video, that’s okay it doesn’t matter to me. No skin off my hindend at all. But there’s someone out there who has done
everything the doctors told him or her. I’m talking to you, I’m talking to you, you’ve
done everything the doctors told you to do, and coarse it’s helped the behaviors, but
it’s not solved your problem. your desperate because you’re losing your
Sheila or your Bob. You’re going to listen to me, and you’re going
to think food is medicine, you’re going to watch these videos, you’re going to get in
contact with some of these doctors who know what they’re talking about.
And you are going to save your Sheila’s life. You really are.
And the rest of the people out here that want to make fun of an old redneck from Tennessee
telling them this stuff, they can kiss my butt. I don’t care.
But for you, I do care, I want you to do this, and let other people know about it too, when
it helps your Sheila I couldn’t save my Sheila, but if you listen
to me, there’s still hope for you. And I’m hoping you will do this investigation.
Thank you very much. Good bye

    Can I add my thanks, this must have been an incredibly hard video to make. Condolences to you and your family for your lost.

I am now off meds and follow a ketogenic diet. I am more improved now than I ever was on medication. Thank you so much for spreading the word about overall health and using fat and fasting to loose weight and to improve a multitude of health problems. God bless you.

    Bob, You are absolutely precious!! I am so sorry for your loss.
    I am so thankful for your time and help! I thought the grief over my son's death in 2014 was causing my extreme weight gain, physical problems, lethargy, and so on..
    I just started your way of eating 3 weeks ago.
    I have been researching like a crazy woman to learn all I can….about the hflc way of life, and researching the medications my Dr has me on. I am so very shocked that the side effects are causing so many of my physical problems. 4 of them cause weight gain and of them causes kidney failure. ..2 of them were only supposed to be short term and I've been on them 5-10 yrs. I lost my desire to do anything fun. I isolated myself from everyone except my children and grandchildren.
    I have a long way to go, but I am already feeling better, weaning off my ridiculous medications, and self medicating with food! High fat, low carb is the key! I am already down 2 sizes, my joints are feeling better, my outlook on life is better, and my future won't be sitting on the side lines watching everyone else have fun! I am so thankful and so excited for this new adventure back to wellness!
    Keep up the good work, and God bless you!
    P.s. if you haven't seen The Magic Pill yet, you ought too…it proves everything you are saying. ..the naysayers will shut up if they watch it!!! It's incredible! !

    Dear Bob. Hello from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I'm really late to the party here. I've only just started learning about intermittent fasting (started two weeks ago on 16:8 and I love it). I've watched tons of videos by Dr. Jason Fung, Thomas DeLauer and by you. You've taught me a lot and you make total sense. Thanks very much. I'm so sorry to hear about the struggles that you and Sheila went through. I know enough about mental health issues to have a good understanding of just how all-consuming and challenging it, not to mention the major stigma around it. Do not blame yourself. We do the best we can at any given time with what we know and what we're able to do. What we learn later doesn't count. Sure, it would have been nice to have been armed with more info at the time but there's also no guarantee that that would have been sufficient. You loved her, you always will, and you did right by her in the best way you knew how. THAT's what counts. Lovely touching video. Good for you for taking the time to do that and no doubt helping countless others in the process. Lots of love from here.

    Statins cause mental deterioration. They also deplete Co Enzyme Q10 and damage the heart. Food is not only lacking in nutrients compared to years ago, it is also poisoned with the insecticides and other cides spayed on it. Processed food is full of harmful substances. I had Scurvy and have lost some teeth. I also had the other symptoms Bob described. Scurvy saved my life because it was a wake up call. I have also studied nutrition and have recovered. I take many supplements and am very carefull about what I eat. My health is greatly improved.

    I have a friend that exists on a high-carbohydrate diet. He has extreme anger outbursts and I can just about set my watch to when he's going to go off. Hour or two before breakfast, hour or two before lunch, hour or two before dinner. The only fat he gets is better on his toast and meat for dinner everything else is carbs. I believe he has bipolar and is blood sugar goes very high after meal and then goes low. I would save her breakfast he gets the equivalent of 12 teaspoons of sugar and then for lunch he'll eat for five pieces of fruit. I rent a room from him so I see what he eats and he sees what I eat and then I started talk to talking to him about keto then that's when he started eating all the fruit for lunch. I just know if he will on a keto lifestyle that he would be a completely different man, but I don't know how to get him to even try it. He has run hundreds of people out of his life. I remain his friend because I work with special needs and I know it's an illness and I know it's from nutrition or the lack thereof.

Sometimes they have both. With pellagra you have diarrhea with beriberi you usually have constipation there's some old veterans videos where they say with beriberi their feet hurt so bad at night that they couldn't sleep it was called electric feet or electric toes please do a historical video about it because I also agree that a lot of people have mental problems like because of nutrition and like some women who go completely Ape during a full moon have parasites and parasites duplicate during the full moon believe it or not.

    Butter Bob I noticed you had a couple comments where people thought it help their mental health to get rid of gluten yes wheat may have toxins but there are other grains such as oatmeal that has tryptophan and tyrosine in it. Beriberi was created by taking the gluten off of rice. Especially when people are dealing with their children they caused their children that have neural tube damage brain damage if they cut out gluten. Of course Since you're kind of Keto this may not apply to you but I think that if people cut out gluten they really need to supplement with your B vitamins and like you said tryptophan.

    Hi, Butter Bob,
    You say that you are an ordinary man–but I think that you are quite exceptional in your insights, committment to Sheila,
    your love and devotion, your intellect– coupled with tremendous compassion, tenderness and analytic capacity. I am
    so thankful that Sheila had you in her life.
    I also comprehend these issues from "the inside out". However, it is only very recently that I've been able to comprehend
    a "nutritional" connection.
    You are a wonderful communicator–logical and clear. For an "ordinary man", Bob–you are certainly quite extraordinary.
    I really appreciate you, and what you are doing. And you are so gracious and gentlemanly!! Bless you, Dear one!!!

    The gut is now considered the second brain. The vagus nerve communicates between the brain and gut. Interesting that most of the communication is 80 percent of the gut telling the brain what to do. Ancient cultures have known of this for a long time. I can attest that changing my diet led to a huge difference in my brain. When we experience anything we feel it in our gut. Trust your gut instinct is the saying.

    I can relate to this. But i believe in what the bible say about our battle is not with flesh and blood but of something else much darker not of this world that battle against us.

    "That Vitamin Movie" talks about doctors that cured mental illness with vitamins.
    Niacin has cured people of bipolar and alcoholism.
    Dr Abram Hoffer was the first psychiatrist to successfully use vitamins to heal mental illness and he got a lot of criticism from the medical community, even though his treatments were more successful.

    Hello Bob,
    Your Shiela video really touched me. I appreciated many of the thoughts and suggestions. Prior to ever discovering you, I have been doing intermittent fasting and keto for about 2 years.
    N.y eight has gone from 267 down to 190. I use to have type 2 diabetes, gout, high blood sugar and more and it is all gone now. I no longer take prescription medicine.
    I used your fried chicken with lard recipe and it came out great.
    I discover many I try to help are often unappreciated, when I can see it and they have closed their eyes. A scripture in the Bible at 2 Corinthians 2:3-5 reminds me constantly how people close their eyes, appearing blind to facts. They seem to embrace the belief they wish to choose.
    Thanks for all you do!

    Bless you all.

    You should feel good about yourself helping others. You have more thumbs up and only 14 thumbs down. That says you are doing something really great.

  • Reply Linda Bragg July 2, 2019 at 10:51 pm

    You did not let Shelia down the doctors did that. They knew what needed done and they did not do it. Plan and simple.

  • Reply McCarthy Kane July 4, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your Sheila. I used to work on a psychiatric floor in a hospital. The standard of care is to rule physical illnesses as a cause of symptoms before making a psychiatric diagnosis – but it is done imperfectly and the focus really isn't on nutrition. Medical facilities unfortunately function a lot like factories where time ( staff time) is money and the patient is expected to conform to care, not the other way around despite all their propaganda to the contrary.
    I am sure you have helped a lot of other people's Sheilas. Sometimes the timing of our lives seems very wrong and we wish we knew then what we know now. But we can't go back in time and we can't change the past as much as we would love to be able to.
    Maybe it isn't much comfort but you have helped many,many people and undoubtedly saved many lives. I wish I had found you when your original video came out but I just found you recently and deeply appreciate everything you've done.

    Thank you Bob – I’ve been suffering as Sheila did – super bad depression and suicidal anxiety and paranoid delusional issues- funny I have been vegetarian for most my life – I’ve been getting better eating meat , when I stop and eat carbs I get really bad thoughts, and super bad constipation – this week I started with fasting, sleep accidentally eating too many carbs – but added meat back again today- I’m hopeful! Thank you for all the tips about the scale and using measurements instead as well as exercise etc ?

    I wish we had Medicaid doctors that cared about a diffeent diet besides the low fat diet. I'm very much for low carb and high fat. They still there nose up when you mention high fat! They only got 2 hours I'm mad school on motion I got 4 weeks so I know more then the doctor what a shame! They need to do 3 months of nutrition!

And I am so sorry for your loss. You have helped so many people, you just keep doing what feels right for you. And thank you for taking the time and trouble to help so many others who have been suffering with obesity and related illness' needlessly for SO LONG.

    I had almost all this symptoms you mentioned for about 15 years. Then I found carnivore diet and it cured me for more than a year. But for a few reason I thought I could just eat everything again. I had a huge breakdown recently and what kept me sane was to know the cure. I am back on track, eating animal foods only and very fast I feel recovered. I feel embarrassed to be so happy now. People have no idea how sad their diet makes them feel. But now with all this veganism everywhere is so hard to help. I hope you are doing well, Bob. The best channel on the subject food ever!

    My Sheila, was my husband. I lost my husband in March 2018. Like your Sheila I started noticing behavioural changes. Because my husband had type 1 diabetes from the age of 4, I put that down to that. A long story, but I tried all sorts of nutrition but he was put on Riverstigmin and Lorazapin for panic attack and was diagnosed has having early onset Lewy body dementia. Everything changed for the worst, I carried on with studying what would help with supplements and nutrition. My husband tried to take his life in the autumn of 2017 by going into the sea, but was rescued and brought home. He attempted it again with his insulin injection and then in March 2018 got out of the house in the early hours of the morning while I slept, exhausted from the previous 5 days of being stuck in door through server back icy weather and this causing more intense behavioural problems. Police, helicopter and searchers have not recovered him and due to his diabetes us presumed dead. He was never suicidal until he was proscribed drugs. These drugs are what killed my husband. Thank you for your video's, I find them very helpful, even though I am vegetarian I know where you are coming from, it is the diet I was brought up on as a child with home grown veg. Bless you

    Thanks Bob. Natural fat has been demonized in order to increase the bottom line of corporations. I cannot afford to eat the perfect diet, but I certainly recognize the bad stuff in its varying degrees being offered at the grocery store. I was aware of Scurvy, Beri Beri, and Pellagra before you mentioned these diseases. I understand that your point is; if the masses could've been fooled before, what makes anyone believe they can't be fooled again? I'm sorry for your loss and I greatly appreciate your advice.
