49th parrallel winter time light hacks

    What have you guys done as far as uv bed and indoor lighting spectrum ranges?
    Just want to see what I can add. So far I've got about 4 365nm sunlite bulbs, 3 660nm rubylux, and about 8 NIR 850nm+uvb bulbs. I've only really been using 4 of the NIR at night after CT 2 hours + 30 mins of NIR before bed. I also CT for about 60-90 mins in the morning without any supplemental light.
    Frantically going around craigslist scooping up floor lamps to get some incandescents in at my work place and at home.

    I plan to attempt some ski touring climbing the local mountains. I'll attempt to climb for about 30-40 minutes with just arm warmers gloves and a face mask with the torso waist up exposed. Pinhole glasses if the glare is too great so I still get some UV and throw on my full downhill gear on the 5 minutes down. Plan to do this a couple times a week to get my pre 10am dose of sun.

    smart. Use the albedo and altitude to your advantage.

    Thanks Jack wont be another 2-3 months till I can do that however, in the meantime can you comment on the indoor situation and UVA in vancouver bc.
    My context is just trying to optimize SIBO results improving and getting over food sensitivities/allergies.

    I don't know enough about you to say anything definitive.

    SIBO and Thor industries bed however is a great match.

    Heard Dave Asprey is releasing something similar, he was talking about it in his latest light hack podcast but didn't mention frequencies but i'm sure both are fully adjustable.
    Then again for 120k that bed better do more than the quantlet I could cover myself from head to toe in quantlets for less than that!
    I'll be posting up my labs soon to show my barely there SIBO.
    Next will be stool testing. Unless I missed is it there a certain sequence of labs I should be doing?

    Hydrogen breath testing for SIBO is cheaper and easy to do.

    Whats wrong with my Vit D?
    TSH is because i'm taking nascent iodine which I will be transitioning to seafood for instead.

    D is very low, get it (naturally) to much higher level, details on your other thread (Tweaks to Dutch hormone test results)
    TSH asks for much more FT3.
    Get more complete thyroid panel.
    15 ------- Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH)- Test Number: 004259 CPT Code: 84443
    16 ------- Thyroxine (T4)- Test Number: 001149 CPT Code: 84436
    17 ------- Thyroxine (T4), Free, Direct, Serum-Test Number: 001974 CPT Code: 84439
    18 ------- Triiodothyronine (T3)- Test Number: 002188 CPT Code: 84480

    20 ------- Reverse T3-Test Number: 070104 CPT Code: 84482

    may want to also figure your antibodies

    Nascent = iodine
    Lugol's=iodine + potassium iodide

    Use Lugol's

    it is more about halides
    to get the undesirable halides out.
    fluoride, chloride, bromide, iodide, astatide,

    look at (eGFR)

    Do you have high or above average muscle mass?

    What should I be aiming for as far as GFR #'s? Higher/Lower?
    The sun will be an issue as I am in vancouver BC and dont really expect to get much unless i'm above the clouds skiing or it's May-Sept season.

    This is the one I use. Lugols is much more gag reflex and hard to down unless your using it topically which will give u some funny stains.
    Nascent iodine is a supplemental form of iodine. Iodine is an essential mineral that the body requires for normal function.[1] For nearly a century, nascent iodine has been regarded as a more effective form of the mineral than many dietary iodine forms, such as potassium iodide. In fact, most forms of dietary iodine become mere iodide in the digestive tract.[2] This is important to note because iodides are not as easily absorbed and utilized by the body, meaning that iodine-dependent organs and processes may not be adequately supported.[3] This is what makes nascent iodine such a popular form of iodine for supplementation.

    By antibodies do you mean IGG? I have that too and want to improve on some of the sensitivities.
    Muscle mass I'd say i'm at 12% BF but want to gain more lean muscle. No problem doing anything physically be it pull ups or pushups or HIIT.

    Eat seafood and iodine will take care of itself and work out outside and use CT in Vancouver. you have a nice park downtown with a Bay

    It's funny that you say that I decided to hit the beach at lunch yesterday before the following weeks of rain. Here are some findings
    Deterrent #1 to CT in the pacific #1 (if you think i should be able to tolerate this then i'll attempt it) https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxQIH-q_fB6Od2U2UUhOeFVjWVU
    Deterrent #2 https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxQIH-q_fB6OMUxnYVRkRDVGaXM
    Deterrent #3 minor and these 2 pictures are in the middle of normally submerged beach by late afternoon I took these wandering out in the morning pretty much 180 degrees to each other where you would expect no cell towers or wifi but low and behold...

    Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)
    it is a part of
    Metabolic Panel (14), Comprehensive Test Number: 322000 CPT Code: 80053

    is dependent of body muscle mass.

    You need what Lugol's have.
    Two ingredients.
    Nascent have only one.

    Put it in the drink.
    I put my 1cc of Lugol's everyday into my morning coffe.

    First time I ever heard of someone gagging on Lugol's.
    How are you actually using it?

    Get at leeast 1000W/12hrs/day of good artificial lights
    4kW/12hrs/day would be better.
