To help Joel get a replacemen Pajero or horse

Hello I am Joel 
I am a unwell person with a rare genetic mutation  which means I have two copies of the MTHFR T677T gene mutation (homozygous) it decreased MTHFR enzyme activity which I have 12% enzyme activity,it slows down the homocysteine-to-methionine conversion process and can lead to a buildup of homocysteine in the blood. This creates a life of fatigue and nutrition deffcent, also I cnt get rid of toxins from my body.

I have a constant battle of only eating clean, I also have SIBO which makes my diet very stricket. 
I was a boiler maker for 15 years and  my body started to shut down after bio toxicity, lead poising heavy metal posing as my body couldn't push them out I weight 54kgs. I lost my career and can not work anymore due to my health which was one of the hardest things to give up after becoming quite heavily skilled in metal work.

For the last three years I have changed my hole life through diet, extreme detoxification and mind set! 
I realised being in the city's and suburbs was detrimental to my health and was making it hard to keep on top and get anything out of my days. So I brought a Pajero 4x4 and got rid of pretty much all of my belongs and set off on the road, I have spent 170 days and alone in the bush this year and I have never felt so alive and my weight is ATM 65kgs! I have been sharing my experiences along the way via Facebook and Instagram !!! 
The feed back I have been getting from my friends and family has been unreal and really made me feel blessed and on the right path!

My Pajero transmission went last night on Christmas day! I'm asking for your help as I want to keep up this lifestyle of constantly discovering and keeping me health and sharing my journey with you!  

"So whilst my car was waiting to be towd over the Christmas new year period,it has been broken into and all my belongings stolen and my car is gone! Waiting back from police but doesn't look like I'll get her back atm!!!"

Any donations or help is much appreciated, I hope to continue my journey as a nomadic soul!
