A success story overcoming fatigue

    I'm now about 9 months in to following Dr. Kruses suggestions. I'm happy to report a success in overcoming fatigue. I have been keeping data on my fatigue issue for 209 days now. The attached graph shows the decrease in my fatigue symptoms.

    Interpreting the scatter plot:
    Each data point in the plot represents an average of the 90 days. So the first data point is my average amount of fatigue from day 1 to day 90. The second data point is the average from day 2 to day 91.

    The red line is linear model that was fit to data to clearly show the decrease.

    I'm happy to report that I have had no symptoms for the past 48 days!!!

    I would like to personally thank Dr. Kruse!

    Am I totally better yet? No, I still have some cognitive impairment symptoms that come periodically.

  4. Wow, that’s awesome.
    I didn’t keep a diary but after finding JK in May this year I’m a new person. I had stage 3 adrenal fatigue and really only did a loose version of the diet but added heaps of oysters. I had 3 holidays in the tropics of 10 days duration on his advice, religiously saw the sun rise and wore blu blockers, went to bed at 9 pm and tried to stay out in the am light as much as possible and totally rearranged my social life; no dinners only lunches. The game changer for me was the Novothor light pod. I did it 2-3x/week and in a 12 sessions I had more energy than I’ve had in a decade. Just need to check my cortisol levels now and I can’t imagine they haven’t gone north. I’m one happy camper. Keen to start CT.

    congratulations mbhemming! can you give some specifics of what you did?
    susie, how did you find a place offering the light pod? i googled my state and the name of that pod and came up with nothing.

    I didn't do everything perfectly, I just did what I could.
    -eat seafood approximately every second day
    -kept reducing EMF as much as I could. I bought a gaussmeter and RF meter. I haven't been able to get rid of my cell phone but I reduced the use as much as possible.
    -I starting doing CT in september but took a really non-aggressive approach to it. I was doing around 2 or 3 times per week in the cold tub. But then it started getting cold where I live so I stopped doing the cold tub and just didn't turn on the heat
    -moved out of the city in a little house that is at ground level, has a well, is in the woods, is 100m to the ocean, and has a fireplace
    -I was doing paleo at first but I had a hard time keeping a healthy weight so now I just eat relatively natural
    -stopped alcohol and caffeine(I started them again recently because I haven't had fatigue symptoms)
    -I also got a tonne of sun last summer. I tried to get 5 hours/day for each day that it was sunny
    -took over a gram of magnesium per day
    -did a lot of walking for exercise
    -I did a lot of circadian synchronization
    *you can check out my health journal for more info. I just tried to summarize it here

    wow- that's great that you moved to the woods. that's always been a dream of mine. i was lucky to have grown surrounded by woods.
  9. Sorry for the late reply, I’ve been locked out of the site.
    I just Googled Novothor and they list which countries and their location. I was very fortunate to find one in my town. Are you in Australia? As apparently there is now one in Sydney.

    no- i'm in the us. i'm going to look around some more. i live near a big city, so there should be something. thanks for your reply. i just saw from novothor.com that the nearest location to me is two states away. i will have to research other options in addition to what i am already doing.

    More time has past and I've continued to make improvements.

    Interpreting the attached graphs:
    -All three graph are on a 90 day window. This means that each data point is the average of 90 consecutive days. So the first data point is the average from day 1 to day 90, and the second data point is the average from day 2 to day 91.
    -The sequence of events are as follows. I started implementing Dr. K's ideas, then a couple months later I started collect the 'fatigue' data, after 3 months of collecting the 'fatigue' data I started collecting the 'energy' and 'cognition' data.
    -the red line is a linear model that fits the blue data

    Congratulations on your improvement!
    I'm looking forward to do the same!

    How do you assess your level of fatigue to input into the graph?
  15. Taiyang,
    I’ve had a breakthrough with maintaining my energy levels without the Novothor light pod. When I was really bad with adrenal fatigue I was doing Novothor sessions 3x/week. I then got to a stage of backing it off to 1x/week which I maintained for about 2 months. I always wondered how much emf’s the machine gave off and when I saw a Jack Kruse comment somewhere, maybe here or Facebook, suggesting a guy go swimming rather than purchase a Joove lamp, I thought maybe I should try swimming too. The bay is the same travel time from my home as the Novothor so I started swimming. It’s not too cold here yet hovering around 60-62 degrees but for me, who’s always felt the cold it a big thing but I’m past dreading it now and I feel great. I get the same energy kick I was getting from the light pod. I also do a sauna then get back in the cold water again. I’m now swimming .75 kilometre, when I started I was swimming about 100 metres.
    Apparently the water temp gets down to 46 or 8c in winter. The club is over 120 yrs old and the swim group is called the Iceburgers. I been pick the brains of the veterans and they say things like, this is our flu injection, we never get sick, I don’t feel right if I don’t start my day this way. Their mean age would probably be around 70 yrs.
    Are you close to the beach?

    I am 10 minutes walking distance from a big river. I am very cold intolerant. Even on a super hot day in the summer, I won't go in the ocean past my calves. Right now i am in one of my cyclic bouts with anemia due to heavy periods. i am being more aggressive with stopping the flow of blood with norethindrone pills since i am getting weak and a sore throat from blood loss. i always hold off on taking pills unless absolutely necessary. i should have started supplementing with iron earlier, but i got scared off by reading about the dangers of iron overload. i am definitely not going to be at that point for a long while, so i am supplementing. maybe as my iron/ferritin stores fill up, i will be less cold intolerant by the summer and i will try swimming in the ocean (1.5 hours a way) like 2x a week and the river everyday. thanks for the update!!
  17. Good luck with that. jK also said your omega 6 :3 ratio should be below 10. If low on omega 3 you’ll feel the cold more.
    Best wishes.

    Showers without any warm water would be a good start and convenient to implement.
