    Just went Platinum, here's to quantum health coaching and writing/blogging about it to help spread the word in 2019!

    In other news looks like I have a very mild case of shingles. The rash onset was a few days ago and it's hardly been noticeable, but there's a mild tinge of pain just starting today, like a 1 on a scale of 1-100, barely noticeable.

    I am guessing it is due to a temporary very bad environment of EMFs and the usual bullshit while traveling to see family and accompanying my wife while shopping in some stores, etc. Thankfully I am home now where the RF is <0.005mw/m^2 and the LF fields are very low in most areas. Been digital detoxing as much as possible, too, even before the rash hit.

    Since I've been doing my naked 20 degree Fahrenheit mornings, sunbathing, CT, etc, I am guessing my redox has improved to the point where I didn't really get the usual prodromal symptoms and the rash (knock on wood) is miniscule and minimally annoying even though the bad environment triggered the onset. I've never had it before.

    Fatigue is way, way down, can't remember the last time I took a nap, which is huge (and I love napping, just haven't felt like it).

    Starting mb back @10mg 3-4 per day sublingual.

    Got some labs, everything was awesome (high-ish 25ohd3 in winter without supplementation, etc) except ldl was over 200 and my bun/creatinine ratio wasn't optimal. I'm not too worried about the ldl but plan to order the vap lipid test just to see.

    No idea about bun/creatinine ratio. I dry fast and I've been fastidious about most nnemf for a while now, but after the test I further reduced the body voltage in my bedroom and will be retesting in March or so. I don't seem to have symptoms of cellular dehydration, no headaches, my dry fasting goes great, and by all indications creativity and energy levels are up. Perhaps it will improve when I do my ddw regimen soon (110 ppm, 2.5L per day for 3 months),or perhaps it's already on an upward trend but was previously abysmal.

    Just touching my electrical panel to flip breakers on or off is enough to trigger angioedema, which is my primary EHS symptom. Must get insulated electrician gloves.

    Never feel like napping any more which was a huge goal I had in mind for end of 2018, definitely a health win.

    Going to get in the waterfall in the attached pic again today, too. My favorite type of CT.

    He's slowly coming around, so far I've gotten him to get blue blockers, and "he thinks about me when he sees the sunrise on the drive to work."

    Unfortunately so many of us need to get sick before we see the point of becoming a mitochondriac.

    Keep being a living example to your boy. I think you have more influence than is visible on the surface. Plus there's always what Mark Twain (likely apocryphally) wrote:

    “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.”

    Some updates:

    Began nicotine gum sometime this past week, along with my methylene blue. MB is oral, 10mg 4x per day (sunrise, mid-AM sun, solar noon, pre-bed). Was dosing sublingual but SERIOUS mouth irritation ensued. It also wiped out some minor white tongue coating though, which is nice (and good to remember).

    I'm limiting myself to 4mg total per day of nicotine gum. I've tried the following:
    • 2mg twice per day
    • 2mg sunrise, 1mg mid-AM, 1mg noon
    • 1/2-1mg four times per day
    I like the subtlety and efficiency of the lower doses, but I also enjoy the focus and energy provided by a higher morning dose. 1/2 mg four times per day is going to be my pick for days where I want less stimulation.

    I plan to take a break from the nicotine after I run out of my current supply (20 x 4mg) so that's about 3 weeks in one go then I'll do a week or two off, seems like a nice duration to gauge results.

    On the EHS side of things, I made a MAJOR mistake and blasted myself for several hours with RF when I was traveling because I wanted to get some work things done online and had no other way to connect. TERRIBLE EHS symptoms for about four days, like major hive eruptions all over my body (way worse than the usual one or two I get from overexposure), angioedema, some genital swelling, and loose stool (indicating poor matrix spin).

    Feeling much better the past several days, and today stool is back to normal. Sometimes our lessons are difficult or painful...

    Everything going well, still having the occasional EHS flareup due to poor judgment about device use. <60min of EMF as logged by QualityTime on my cell is enough to do it.

    I think I am having chilblains in my feet, very odd. Initially I suspected fluid retention due to high intentional salt intake, so I stopped that, but then I looked into gout -- the symptoms don't match gout at all, but I ran across chilblains (also discussed on this forum) and the signs and symptoms fit. Itchy, inflamed skin, swelling, and tenderness.

    Very odd because I am doing less CT than I have for the entire past year, although I have been spending lots of time outside barefoot or sphinxing.The worst flare-ups did seem to happen as I would come inside (often to an 80+ degree room, thanks to a wood stove being the sole heat source) out of 20-30 degree F weather.

    Some people say the cause is keeping the feet cold too long, others seem to think it's the transitioning between cool and warm environments. I've been wearing wool socks all day today and the swelling and pain are reduced by 80-90%, so I'll keep doing what I'm doing.

    Other confounding factors that may or may not contribute would be the nicotine, which I added about two weeks ago, and doing a LOT of water restriction and dry fasting (often going a couple of days with less than 500ml of water). I will keep on what I'm doing but address these factors if the socks don't clear the issue up altogether.

    Recently marked 2 full months without a nap, and I enjoy napping. Just haven't needed one. Work focus is excellent, as is productivity. I also really like this article's discussion of "deep work" and have found the tips useful. Nothing secret there, just good reminders.

    My energy levels have been very steady and balanced overall. Problem-solving is efficient.

    I split wood almost every morning, for my wood stove. Some days I'll sit (meditate) in front of the stove while it's open for a nice natural blast of IR radiation.

    Once or twice daily meditation has been as deep as ever, and less effortful (I always cut back on or even take a break from meditation when it seems effortful, but I am sitting for 30-45 minutes each time with no effort these days).

    I've been REALLY enjoying mugwort around or before bedtime. Nice dreamy feeling before sleep, and vivid or even lucid dreams (one about time travel). I took a few weeks off but just reordered, I like the Starwest Botanicals brand. Adding in some chicory in the mornings. Haven't touched caffeine or felt like touching it in a couple of months, either. Alcohol (Argentinian Malbecs) sparingly socially on some days when I don't have symptoms.

    More snippets:

    • I have been using nitrile gloves to turn the breakers on or off, to cut back on nnEMF exposure while doing that.
    • No further chilblain symptoms after wearing socks outside all the time now.
    • Today or tomorrow, ordering enough Qlarivia for me and my dad to both do a 90 day regimen. I'll start at 110ppm and may go down to 101ppm, he'll start at 101ppm or 82ppm and may go down to 82ppm or 65ppm respectively due to his medical history.
    • I just installed a Tylson outside grounding rod for my grounding half sheet on the bed. Put it about 6" away from a large cedar tree 30 feet from the house, so there shouldn't be much nonnative electrical activity there. Rural area.
    • Just added in 1 tsp NaHCO3 twice each day on an empty stomach to see if it affects my energy levels or subjective other parameters I monitor.
    • Experimenting with no MB before bed, but now taking up to 6-7 10mg doses per day orally. Currently off nicotine until next Wednesday (1 week off after 2.5-3 weeks of up to 4-6 mg per day).

    I remember @Scompy talking about his spatula, but the breakers on this old place are not up to code. I have to kind of hold them in place with one finger while I flip the switch, or the fuse can actually come loose out of the housing a little bit. Pretty sketchy but it's a long story as to the rental, I don't plan on paying to get it fixed though, so this is the best solution I've found.

    Meant to add I have also been slowly adding incline to the bed. First 3.5", now 4.5". Seems to be a positive for sleep, except for the adjustment period and the tendency for heavy bed covers to slide down in the night. Probably won't add more incline for a while, maybe ever.

    Minor update about exercise. As I mentioned, I've been back to lifting once per week outside using kettlebells and bodyweight exercises.

    Very much focusing on "minimum effective dose" with exercise, and most things (other than cold and sunlight), but with excellent energy levels and productivity I felt it was time to add a bit more intensity to my routine. Here's what I did yesterday, and plan to stick to a similar pattern going forward as there's lots of room for advancement.

    This session was heavily influenced by Dan John's methods. I'm a huge fan of Dan John and he gets a lot of things right (lots of sleep, training outside). It's also a pretty good method for some HIIT type benefits to the mitochondria.

    "Warmup"
    • Butt-to-wall hinge (similar to a Romanian deadlift with a pause at the bottom) x 5
    • Lawnmower KB row x 8
    • Three-way loaded carry drill (waiter walk, rack carry, and suitcase carry - same side same weight, no rest, switch sides and repeat)
    • Farmer's carries (asymmetrical) x varied

    Main Session
    • 2-1-3 KB inner tube complex (2 double KB cleans, 1 press, 3 double KB squats)
    • Superset with pushups x 5*

    Finisher
    • Hill sprints (sprint up, walk down, repeat) x 2 this session

    *Like most adult men I can do more pushups than this, but the main focus was on grace and movement quality. Five reps is plenty to tax work capacity and focus on form in between the inner tube complexes.

    I've always enjoyed the uniqueness and infinite adjustability of workout design, so it was a lot of fun being able to incorporate more variety and intensity than I have been.

    Just for anyone following along it looks like I didn't mention my heavy metal detox protocol I did sometime around September of last year. I used bentonite clay, chlorella powder, and lots of fresh cilantro. I don't have the exact amounts but basically I would take them together 2-3 times per day, fairly high doses (particularly of the cilantro, like 15-20 rinsed whole stalks). Did it for about 4 weeks.

    Random thoughts and questions of the day:

    1) Anyone got insight on how to safely consume or use mistletoe? Fritz Popp said it has the highest biophoton content, but no clue of how he utilized it, and some sources say it's toxic (but rarely or never lethal) to consume. I have some growing nearby.

    2) Is there a subjective perceivable effect to slowing down biological time? Since it involves relativity, would slower biological time = sped up subjective perception of time? This happens to me a lot during CT, but in sunlight time sometimes seems to slow down.

    3) When I was dealing with severe PTSD symptoms a few years ago, I got prescriptions for low-dose fluvoxamine and gabapentin, mostly so I could sleep again without waking up in a panic. I didn't have a quantum clue back then but it was effective for short-term use, paired with somatic therapies (through a therapist). When I felt like stopping it was easy to taper off relatively fast. I thought people reading this journal might appreciate it knowing it was a piece of the puzzle for me, and I think these two drugs are quite gentle as far as pharmaceutical options for treating things like PTSD symptoms.

    Had a little too much sake last night (not a lot though, maybe 3 "drinks" worth) and had a terrible headache all night, which went away during AM sun and sphinxing. I have had maybe two headaches the past year and the AM sun always does the trick. Rough reminder not to have more than 1, or at most 2, drinks for a night, though...I had been off alcohol a while and got a little cocky, ouch.

    Sleep quality the past week or two has been diminished, no idea why. Hoping it gets better soon. Mugwort tea or a mugwort sachet in the pillow is amazing for vivid dreams, I'm not having it nightly, though.

    Really enjoying this podcast for kirtan chants/music while working, and focus has been awesome for my freelance writing gigs: www.newworldkirtan.com - been listening to lots of Ganesh mantras, currently listening to some Krishna mahamantra -- http://newworldkirtan.com/2012/08/the-hare-krishna-set/ (love the Baghavad Gita).

    Ganesha/Ganapati is known for clearing obstacles in your path. If you like mantras you can try chanting "Om Gam Ganapatiyeh Namaha" 108 times for 11 days in a row as part of your practice.

    As far as I'm concerned Ganesh is the most Baghavad Git'er done being out there.
