Cole Robinson (Creator of the Snake Diet) and Mikhaila discuss fasting, losing weight and helping others lose weight, why he chooses to be vulgar, and the importance of salt.
"The snake diet has been designed to mimic the way wild animals eat. The idea is that you eat one large meal and then fast for the rest of the day or even several days.
Snakes eat one big high-fat, protein-packed meal a day, and then don’t eat for around 22 hours. The snake diet is meant to follow this.
During times of fasting, you don’t consume food or any calories. The only thing you can consume during fasting is snake juice. The snake juice consists of water, sea salt, potassium chloride, baking soda, and sulfate salts. It is intended to replenish your electrolytes. The snake juice recipe was created by Robinson himself."

Welcome to the Mikhaila Peterson Podcast, episode 9. This is a brief podcast with my dad Jordan Peterson about what happened to him and my family in the last year.
The following are links that may help elucidate some of the topics we discussed in this episode:
Paradoxical reaction to benzodiazepines – a condition dad was diagnosed with https://www.acep.org/how-we-serve/sections/toxicology/news/july-2017/paradoxical-reactions-to-benzodiazepines-who-gets-them-and-why/ - Akathisia - something dad really really really suffered from - https://w-bad.org/akathisia/ - “Many medical professionals don’t recognize akathisia or that it’s a drug-induced state. Instead, they write off the symptoms as a “worsening of mental illness” or other condition. Sometimes they even raise the dose of the offending drug and when the patient’s condition worsens as a result, they may prescribe more medication which can sometimes further exacerbate the problem or that fail to offer relief. If the medical professionals you encounter are ignorant about akathisia or attempt to blame it on “something else”, present them with medical information on the condition or search until you find a knowledgeable physician.” - Catatonia and benzo withdrawal - https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8835707/ - Suicidality and benzodiazepines - https://www.psychiatrist.com/PCC/article/Pages/2017/v19n02/16r02037.aspx - “The majority of studies identified in this review report a positive correlation between prescribed benzodiazepines and attempted or completed suicide.” https://www.healio.com/news/psychiatry/20181101/benzodiazepine-users-with-ptsd-more-likely-to-attempt-complete-suicide - Dependence vs. Addiction - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSdYltpePU8&list=PLGiM-snSAzyv6vnRV5NRsnJ_aQmapK0FI&index=7&t=0s - Benzodiazepine use and dementia risk - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6325366/ - Benzo prescription rates: “More than one in eight U.S. adults (12.6 percent) used benzodiazepines in the past year” https://www.psychiatry.org/newsroom/news-releases/study-finds-increasing-use-and-misuse-of-benzodiazepines - Examples of severe benzo withdrawal from prescribed benzos: https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/lifestyle/healthandlife/benzo-nightmare-us-doctor-on-a-personal-mission-to-highlight-the-dangers-of-the-drug-995756.html http://www.benzo-case-japan.com/my-story-english.php https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2047018/ - A particularly heartbreaking experience http://www.zakstein.org/for-meghan-testimony-in-support-of-ma-house-act-4062/ - Celebrity deaths involving benzos:

One study published this year showed that using benzos with opioids increases overdose risk five-fold compared with using opioids only.” https://www.upmc.com/media/news/opioid-benzo-overdose https://www.drugabuse.gov/drug-topics/opioids/benzodiazepines-opioids - Warnings for benzodiazepine usage: “If benzodiazepines are needed daily, people shouldn’t take them for longer than two to four weeks. If used long term, then it’s best only to take them two to three times a week.”
