    What do you guys think about the new "protein based" things like Novavax?

    My family got the corona virus this week. I got it last after my kids and my wife. We all got it eventually. I was good that we had a staggered onset, so we could take care better.
    The first day I had fever, also more than 10 years since I had fever last time. I was feeling cold, hat headaches, was tired and had light limb pain. I never had the flu but I think this must be the symptoms. It was pure coincidence that we discovered it, because we couldnt really trace it back. But the evening of my symptoms I decided to do a quick test at home and there it was (at this time the tiredness and headaches were gone to a big part).
    Next day we got the PCR and went into home quarantine. Its now the 7ths day and were so lucky to have a big balcony to the south side.
    I had fever for 2 days, but starting the 2. day was not so bad anymore. The sleep was trashed the first 2 days, my heartrate was a bit higher at rest (80-90/min) and my heart was pounding when I had fever. I was a bit scared I had a myocarditis but I had no shortness of breath over the whole period. Sleep regenerated at day 3. My appetite also was trashed for about 4-5 days.
    The days after there was onset of dry coughing and sniffles, the coughing was annoying but not very bad. Basically after the first day it was like a cold. All symptoms are now fading away, but I feel like I now get some loss of taste and smell. But that could be the because of the sniffles, too.
    I am not satisfied with the outcome, it could have gone better. I probably have insufficient VD3 levels. But on the other side Im ok with the outcome, was nothing bad at all for my whole family.
    I got in the midday sun almost every day, its just the time when the suns inclination was over 30°. I did that on day 1 too. I noticed that my headaches completely went away in the midday sun as long as she was shining at my face.

    I recently started to notice a interesting phenomenon when using my firewave for the eyes.
    I sit in front of it with my eyes closed and at close distance like 20cm for deep tissue effects.
    After 10min or so it seems that my retina is beginning to pulsating from outside to inside. Its like waves the come from outside and go to the inside and meet in the middle and for a short time everything is much brighter than before. Its really difficult to prescribe.

    Question is: Is that good or bad?

    So it really was only the sniffles. We're doing fine. A bit of coughing here and there but nothing serious. Would like to know if it was omicron or delta variant.
    Im already picking a tan right now, sun is only at 35° inclination. Actually I didnt loose the whole tan even over the winter time. That is crazy but I had tan lines over the whole winter period, of course not as strong but they were existent.

    I had some blood taken for measurements because I had slight symptoms or the feeling of myocarditis. EKG also was made. If there was any -itis its was not measureable with blood markers or EKG, so good sign. But to be sure I avoid too much sporty activity and used the time in the early spring sun.
    I used to blood taking for getting vitamin D3 levels. The vitamin D levels and the markers for hemoglobin and hematocrit showed me I definitely have to change something.

    Vitamin D3: 88.4 nmol/l = 35 ng/ml
    Hemoglobin: 8.5 mmol/l (8.7-11.2)
    Hematocrit: 0.39 (0.41 - 0.53)

    This shows me I am slightly anemic, not good at all, especially as I am not a woman. My D is not as high as I wish, to th 70-120 ng/ml is a long way to go. My only comfort is, that this markers were drawn at the end of winter period with no D possibility. I take no vitamin D endogenously but that level explain why I had a light sick period during my C-19 infection.
    I started the change already at my quarantine where I saw the sun as early as possible near sunrise (we have a slight hill in the way). Now I add the leptin reset again to that, because I think my circadian rhythm is off big time, when the blood markers are down so far. I thought I were doing good, but when I remember the last months my sleep was not my priority with evenings going to bed at 11-12pm and waking 6.30 to 7. I made the BAB the last days and my sleep instantaneously improved as well as my liver function.
    Maybe I have to add more iron rich foods, these are also rare. I mainly eat my fish and meat but no liver...also I eat many eggs.

    I definitely have to take measurements at the end of summer to sea how I am doing, but my guess is that blood markers are going to improve with the vitamin D going up.

    As usual Limits are different. The Limits I posted were from my Laboratory. But values are at least quite Low. When I think Low Iron I think AI issued, because my Younger sister Just Had this.

    Alex, dont make the same mistake as I and start eat organs :thumbsdown:
    they are not good for us, I am now pretty sure of that. I have had liver give me way too much vit A. Also too many egg yolks, pastured raw cheeses, butter and cream.. these all have lots of vitamin A in them. Vitamin A is more a poison than anything else I have learned, and it accumulates in the liver very slowly, then comes all sort of issues.
    I have quit eating egg yolks and organs completely now and it feels great.
    Also fish eyes are high in vit A, and I started feeling so odd after my occasional fishhead smoothie.. now i know why. My body tried to tell me not to poison it anymore.

    The iron uptake is disturbed when your liver cant work properly, that is it. It might cause anemia or iron overload.
    I go with muscle meat now my body like it. And I limit my butter.

    Listen to this guy, he explains it all, with the liver, AI illnesses and any illnesses, how it origins from the liver.
    this doctor have done about all the same mistakes as I, huh. Now I know why nose to tail carnivores dont do well, and muscle meat carnivores do great for many years and still do, I have watched these people both so I know. Nose to tail is not good. The organs are way too high in vit A. Also eggyolks when eaten on regular basis (I could easily do 4 to 8 yolks in one day)

    I have watched almost all of his videos and I am so thankful to be able to now put a few more pieces together :):) amazing.
    This vitA toxicity and liver damage comes veery slowly so it can take many years before one notices, but I noticed some weird thing.. I got so thin skin, and dry at places, it did not help that I ate lots of seafood anymore at all... and then I had this gallbladder/liver sensation I thought it was from too much iron, but it was from too much vitA. Who would have thought! :D
    Now I can eat a kg of meat a day and I have zero sensation at the gallbladder area anymore!

    My poor liver. my poor gallbladder. I try to forgive myself doing so many mistakes :love:

    I am giving my liver a break now and I do a meat salt and water fast. Ditched all spices, herbs, teas, coffee... no supplements, nothing. It feels divine!
    Oh.. I do some CDS too, not every day, but it feels great to do once in a while. I think it helps to oxidize the poisons that my liver is now pushing out ;)
    that it had accumulated for so long because I pumped it full with vit A (I ate a whole Deer liver around Christmas... holy shit.. I thought I did something good to me.. but.. game livers are so so full of vitA) and.. nicotine gum. Uhhh. yeah. I got so addicted to it. And I stopped about a month ago for good. It was so hard and I felt so bad for a week or two. And then it felt so good. So that must have been hard on my liver too.
    I try to tell myself, it is okay to do mistakes as long as we keep learning and fixing what we broke :) if I had not done these mistakes I would have known way less! ;):)

    There are real dangers in being a "health-nut".
    I know see that clearly.

    And it also explains why some people living on pasta do pretty well! They dont mess themselves up with all kind of supplements(so bad for the liver) and regular organ consumption, or smoothies, or other superfoods that in fact are not good for us at all.

    Spectracell laboratory is located in USA.
    Ask @Ravi Sandhu , he is able to get Spectracell test in Europe.

    Trust but verify.
    Even when you know your levels need adjustment, it is not always easy to do it.

    Jan, you can not measure vitA with bloodtest, only with liver biopsy. And that is so invasive you dont want to do that if not a must.

    It accumulates in the liver, the body stores it there as it is a poison when too much. It is VERY easy to get too much of it these days.

    The bloodtest can show too little vitA, and you have way too high amounts in your liver! It is really not good. All this cod liver oil craze is a catastrophe, really. It hurts people. But they dont know, because it goes so slow.. and nobody told them it is that.
    Supplement industry is as evil as the Pharma. IMHO.

    Some things are great to measure in blood, vitamin A is not one of those.

    But we can remind ourselves what we have been eating and doing, and count how much vitA or Retinol we have gotten into us. And so we can know if we might have vitamin A poisoning. I surely had/have. But I am fixing it :):)

    Inger that is an interesting story. I recently saw the documentary with you in the main role as raw meat eater :D Interesting to see the change you made.
    It could actually be with the vitamin A, but I dont really eat organ meat and no liver. So the main problem must be the eggs if it is a problem. I eat often 20-30 eggs a weak. I mean it could be the problem. Eggs are my main source of protein and fat and the easiest option for breakfast.
    I have to see if that is possible, because I often eat carrots to, but not so much.

    Calling @John Schumacher please get Sherlock Holmes hat with you.

    Please peruse the exchanges on page 45 of this thread.
    Somehow this discussion about vitamin A does not seem right (to me).
    Demonizing eating animal nose-to-tail, severely limiting eggs and carrots, seem unnecessarily restricting.
    Add to that the guy on the video on post #888

    All this changed @Inger 's eating habits 180 degrees.
    Is she right doing it?
    Previously Inger was an example of @Jack Kruse eating habits
    I guess now, not so much.

    I am not questioning her claims that she is doing better after that change, just suspect that her changes happened for a different reason.
    She was recently complaining about excesive iron, I think she donated some blood.

    Nah.. Jan, I have not changed my eating habits that much! I just dropped certain foods, that is :)
    I am completely for seasonal and local eating, and I eat pretty much carnivore now too. Dont forget I live high north :)
    I just dont believe organs are good for me anymore. Maybe they could have been so 200 years ago or earlier, but in this modern time for me I dont think they are good at all. Too much copper(from eating organs etc) will just make one more sensitive to EMF.
    Everyone is free to eat as much organs and eggs and butter and dairy etc. as they want, and make their own experience of course. I just wanted to tell about mine so to maybe save someone from the same errors of too much vit A:)
    I listen to my body so I knew to stop before getting sick, I just get those sensations that something is not 100% right. Then I search and change things. Always growing and learning.

    Also it has never been possible to eat tons of eggs in the real wild nature for humans. Also not tons of butter, or cheese and cream and milk etc. This is a modern thing. And in animals the organs are a very small part, not something one had a lot of at all :eek::):)

    haha.. how crazy you watched me :) I am feeling a little sad for the people who maybe try start eat organs after watching that - but then I thought, ahh, the whole TV is so full of lies, so it kinda fits :D
    That is a lot of eggs you are eating. I did that too a while but then it started to feel kinda odd so I stopped it. Funny how the body always tells us when something is not good for us.
    maybe try out doing more ground beef instead of eggs and carrots? It is more natural food source i would say, maybe you will do great with it, and it is also quite cheap :)

    If you have ever used skin products with Retinol, like accutane, or taken cod liver oil, those will have already done some vitA damage in the liver.
    I had to take codliver oil as a kid. I even loved it, could have emptied the whole bottle :confused:

    That's a good point, I dont eat any organs because I dont like the taste

  19. I have been eating 4 yolks with bacon, sausage, steak or spam every day. Also making mayo and blue cheese dressing with yolks and duck fat. Ice cream custard made with 1.5 quarts heavy cream and a dozen yolks. The yolks are fertile, live and layed yesterday. I don't eat liver or organ meat but lots of fatty cuts with chewy membranes. It seems to agree with me; hope it doesn't kill me.

    Invasion of the iron snatchers..
    You have just gone through COViD. Inflammation and infection and lower iron levels go together.
    Vitamin D also gets used up in infections.
    Checks and balances mechanism re iron here.

    I do not think that hypovitaminosis A is likely if you have a varied diet. Why not change out a couple of eggs for good Leberwurst? Sauerkraut mit Leberwurst while the weather is still cold?
