    I thought:

    "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"

    I've been listening to Robbie Bourke's podcast for a year now. I had already bought Gerald H. Pollacks book about water. I had heard of Jack Kruse through Gerald H. Pollack, but didn't know Jack. But after Jack pops up at Robbie show, he hurts my head, and I dive right down into Nutrition Vermont 2016 and 2017, and I´am hooked (until further knowledge will reveal my path :)

    I'm going to write a lot in Norwegian here. If I start this blog in English, this diary will be very thin. I'd rather see if I can use Google or something to translate later. Now I just want to get started and I have to write in Norwegian. Sorry to all of you who can't speak Norwegian, but this is not really for you :) --- this is for me :)

    Health:
    I'm struggled. Last time I checked my blood values the values were very good. It's been one year since I got the values checked. I should set up a new doctor's appointment. I train several times a week. My biggest challenge at the moment is that I have to go and pee at least 3-4 times a night ... my bladder is totally inelastic ...

    Sleep:
    I've struggled with sleep. I get to sleep, but I used to wake up at night (4/5 pm), went back to the bathroom, but didn't fall back asleep until after one or two hours. Some nights I got over 7 hours sleep, other nights I got less sleep. I tried to put myself in bed before 11pm and also tried to avoid the PC and TV after 9pm. I also stopped exercising late at night. Other times I don't get to sleep right away, but this is normally only if I am too late in bed. After listening to Jack, I have started with blue-blocking glasses and it seems to help me sleep. I still wake up many times during the night because I have to pee, but now I fall more easily back to asleep again. I hope this will last.

    Pee problem - enlarged prostate:
    I have been through a prostate reduction surgery. My bladder is still not well functioning and I urinate frequently. The operation was in June and now it has been almost 7 months. I'm a little impatient now. I had hoped the situation would improve after half a year.

    I've started with CT (Jack) and notice the cold makes me have to pee even more often (a familiar experience after a lifetime in winter Norway and a lot of outdoor life). It is not particularly difficult for me to find opportunities to freeze. It's now 32 Fahrenheit outside.

    I work as a personal trainer. I am here primarily to learn. I train 9 people with Parkenson disease. I train children and adolescents at age 11 to 19. Several of these young people are Norwegian champions in Tennis. I meet many different people in my job also. It would be fun if I could really, really, help these people properly, properly. Much better than everyone else :) It's very much I don't understand. I also know that very much in the fitness world is just a refresh of the same, same. Mediterranean Diet, Train More, Eat Less, Go Hard or Go Home ... It's So Much More, and I'm on a knowledge journey that started in 2011. This is my fifth year as a Personal Trainer. Maybe I will build a mini longevity center in my garden ;-) ... a place where my customers can come to train, ground, outdoors and maybe take a cold and hot bath.

    Welcome Johan! :) From another Norwegian! Please write in English, we all are here to learn from each other, how can we learn if we do not understand the written language?
    I cant write and speak too well English either..lol But it does not matter, we learn along the way :)

    JanZ have had amazing result with his prostate issues drinking DDW, you might want to try that! He also used to have to pee several times/night... but about after 1 month of drinking the DDW the issue improved dramatically!

    Thank you for caring Inger :) I will try to stick to English. I read and hear a lot of English, but I find it hard to write in English. Despite having actually studied in English. In fifth grade, I was diagnosed with "severe dyslexia". This is not so problematic for me today, but has meant that I have not learned written grammar .... either in Norwegian or English. huh ...

    Inger, I understand that you are Norwegian and understand Norwegian correctly? Do you know anything about deuterium in Norwegian drikking water? I live in Oslo.

    Johan my grammar is horrible too...lol but who cares! We just try our best and it is awesome we can all communicate in English despite having many different mother languages!

    Yes I am Norwegian, but born and grew up in Finland, going to a Swedish school. I have 2 siblings living in Norway, one in Fredrikstad and another in Stavanger.

    To know deuterium in the to water you need to measure it.. and it costs a bit, but is possible!
    I was drinking the Norwegian glacial water "Isbre". I thought it should be low in Deuterium but it wasnt! Someone here on the forum tested it and it was around 150 ppm, iirc. At least not great.
    Maybe the testing has to do with season too? IDK.. in winter the deuterium should drop because it gets cold. But there might be other benefits to drinking the glacial water, maybe you can source it where you live, and it is not too expensive. Voss is a great brand too, that also is a glacial water and should have less deuterium. Noway to know for sure without testing though.
    But you could freeze it once and sieve it and get a bit less deuterium, I do that all the time with my Volvic, when I cant afford Qlarivia. Right now I cant..lol
    Volvic has less minerals, and freezes beautifully, about 1,5-2 hours in the freezer, I shake the bottle, and get "snow"(mostly, not always, what is weird. Sometimes I just get ice flakes instead)! Then I sieve it and toss the snow/ice... where now the deuterium is concentrated. You will get a few ppm lower deuterium in your water doing this :).
    But you need to use a low mineral water, because deuterium binds to the minerals, that is what I was reading.
    IDK if you can get Qlarivia DDW shipped to Norway, I would try.

    Very kind of you, Inger! I started freezing water when you suggested reducing DDW. Doesn't cost anything to do it. Some challenges with the logistics. It will pas. Last night I used IR light on my water too :) I have sent a message to your water suppler Inger. Probably a little expensive to import water to Norway. Shouldn't be necessary. Throughout my life I have heard that Norwegian water is very healthy. We drink water right from the tap. Hehe... :)

    I am working out which glasses to wear ... My regular supplier was not much help, but they gave me contact information to a wholesaler. The picture below shows how these glasses block light. This becomes an intermediate solution I think. I understand from Jack that I should block 435-465 nm, and/or maybe preferably 410 to 480 nm. I'm short-sighted with crooked corneas ... I read well without glasses. I am now using a couple of https://circadianeyewear.no, but these are not adapted to my eyes ...

    I use blue blocker before sunrise and after sunset, and when I look at PC / TV / blue screen. Is it enough with Iflux on the PC, or should I use the glasses too and instead?

    Do any of you have suggestions on how to get the best solution with glasses?

    In the past I have taken many cold baths, both on the mountain, in the sea and in the northern fjords. My father taught me to do sauna and make snow angels in the snow afterwards. In the fall ones a year I always take wood-fired sauna with baths in a cold mountain river. Here at home, I have a sauna witch I use two times a week mixed with cold showers. After getting acquainted with Jack Kruse CT two weeks ago, I've tried CT twice last week for about 20-30 minutes. This was something completely different! I shook like a maple leaf. I don't know what temperate water I had, but it felt cold enough. I started with some hot water in the bathtub, and gradually mixed in cold water. I let the water run over, so the water got pretty cold. I tried to imagine that the water kept 10 degrees Celsius or 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Today I took CT for 45 minutes. I even put one big bag of ice cubes on my crotch and at the bottom of my stomach ... I am hopping to get my bladder regenerated :) Afterwards I air dried with the windows opened - the temperature outside was -3 ℃ = 26.6 ℉. At the end I think it was absolutely wonderful to stand naked upright trembling leaf. It felt like a workout. in the end I loved it :)

    I'm probably colored by traditional thinking. I didn't know that a cold body that trembles is a good thing.... Cool!

    I will order 144 Qlarivia today. I have been frizzing water, but this is not a good longterm solution. I believe my peeing frequents is better already, but how knows. Too early to tell. I went for a long cross country ski-trip today, with more cold air and I opened my jacket and let my torso and neck stay cold. I also tried to only breath through my nose.

    My (our) magnetico Sleep Pads arrived two days ago. My wife is skeptical. Here bed got a bit harder after installing the Magnetico.... Not good... hehe. I ordered the magnets without her knowing... I told here I had ordet some magnets... hehe.... They where freakishly heavy!! I thing I have more peace in bed after sleeping on the Magnetico for two night. Also to early to tell. Maybe it is the Magnetico that improves my bladder?? (Or CT??) My wife tells me she has lots of wild dream that she didn't have earlier.

    As a fellow married man I hope that she soon understands the value of the mattress and more than just wild dreams will occur on it.

    I hope so too! I've always been concerned with weird things. However, this time I have struck the wirdest goldmine ever !! hehe ... the quantummine. My wife is not as interested in new things and knowlege .... she is a bit annoyed with many of my health and fitness ideas.

    SUN Dubai
    I just spent 8 days in the sun in Dubai. Without sunscreen and sunglasses. In advance, I thought it would be exciting to try daily sunbathing without sunscreen and sunglasses. It went well! I took sun in a sun studio twice for 20 minutes in the weeks before traveling. I also ate a lot of fish and took some supplements with vitamin D. Unfortunately, I did not get the test result from the vitamin samples I took before traveling. I plan to retest the samples now after the journey. It will be exciting to see how my D vitamin levels have evolved after 8 days in the sun :)

    Unfortunately, my wife chooses sunscreen early in the day, both for herself and for the children. Admittedly only one round of sunscreen per day. We all got plenty of sun. The only monkey is that my eldest daughter chooses to wear a bathing suit all day. She didn't get any sun on her stomach. Hopefully we are in a process toward new habits. My wife got to experience that it went well with me despite no sunscreen or sunglasses. She has never been afraid of the sun and is probably easy to convince about the sun's health-giving properties.

    In used the D-minor app, and adapted my time in the sun according to recommendations in the app. We got outside in the sun, early in the day. However, when the UV light was the strongest I chose to prepare lunch for the children in the apartment - around noon. After just over an hour inside, we went out and finished the day outside. In the sun! We also had some days with some clouds. These clouds also help me through shock tanning in Dubai.

    Magnetico
    The sleep pad is amazing. Our bed was wonderful even before Magnetico. I think the magnets help but know it's hard to control. My wife still likes her bed! She experiences more dreams and this should be good, at least according to "sleep scientist" Matthew Walker. I also dream more. But what causes the dreams I do not know: DDW, blue blockers, Magnetico, two meals a day?
    :)

    The Spooky Quantum world
    I am reading the book "Life on the Edge" by Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe McFadden, and I am a bit surprised that I think stories about magnetic fields and migratory birds are very exciting. Even the "spooky" electron entangelment and spin are entertaining. This is surprising to me :)

    Transfer of sunshine – exercise and CT

    I’m a coach and uses “transfer training” as a mean to coupled two or more exercises too improve sports movements or athletic endowers.

    Today I couplet 15 minutes in a sunbed with one hour of uphill skiing in the sunshine. When walking uphill, I was wearing nothing on my upper body and only some short pants, a backpack, cloves and my telemarkskiboots. People look at me… but who cares, I would have remove all my garments if it had been possible. In this case, I´m only wondering how the lift-folks would reacted. Hehe… J

    Hopefully, despite me having some non-natural UV today, I corrected some of the manmade light with real latitude sunshine.

    ouch, Johan that is a lot of wifi o_O
    Where I sit right now at my desk I can see one, 3/4 strength signal.. and I do not like that either!

    Good for you getting out to get some sun scantily clad :) :) The sun is really strong up in the mountains and the snow :)
    Did you got any color?
    I remember as kids when we were in Norway and our relatives and friends had been up skiing and in their cabins and they all came down again really tanned... :)

    Also my grandparents lived on the Lofoten Island and they were a lot outside and they were always dark brown! Imagine.. that far up north :)
