"Absolute Hell:" Jordan Peterson Withdraws From Public Life Due to Medical Nightmare

Terrible.

Jordan Peterson is recovering from a severe addiction to benzodiazepine tranquilizers and was recently near death in an induced coma !!!!], his daughter Mikhaila said.

He is being treated at a clinic in Russia after being repeatedly misdiagnosed at several hospitals in North America, she said.

The University of Toronto psychologist who became an intellectual hero to a global audience by aligning self-help theory with anti-progressive politics was first prescribed the medication a few years ago to treat anxiety after what Mikhaila described as an autoimmune reaction to food. His physical dependence on it became apparent to his family last April, when his wife Tammy was diagnosed with cancer.

The last year, which saw him retreat from public life after swiftly becoming one of the most famous authors in the world, has been an "absolute hell," said Mikhaila, also a well known speaker on diet, who advocates eating only beef.

He has long struggled with depression and had thoughts of suicide this past summer.

I'm not sure of what his autoimmune disease is, but it usually works like this: Someone has some kind of allergy to a molecule found in food, which most people have no negative reaction to. Their antibodies react to this usually-benign molecule as if it is some kind of hostile foreign body, and this leads to serious inflammation throughout all the tissues of bodies, resulting in a whole host of symptoms.

I understand that that's why both he and his daughter switched to the carnivore diet -- people with bad autoimmune disorders sometimes try cutting out virtually every food type except meat. (I think meat is usually not a culprit because, well, we're already made of meat.)

I hope he gets well.
