    Well Barry I got a new blog for you to chew on today: "We live by a small trickle of electricity from the sun.” The green of our garden, the algae in our water, the trees, grasses and herbs on our lands are the transforming agents that harvest the sun’s light via the process of photosynthesis. When we consume these foods, this stored sun energy is released into our bodies as electrons; it is then transformed into ATP, adenosine triphosphate, the biological energy necessary for all cellular function.”

    Member in Ireland just sent me this and I had to share it with you Barry. This is intense CT and grounding here. He said, "Early and late sun prepares skin not to be burned, by stimulating production of half a dozen sun screeners, so I'm surfing Ireland naked at this time of year, no wetsuit, is suggested to prepare for Great Barrier reef jetski to big waves in December."

    Thats intense! Im on day 21 of deep CT in the lake. The water was 33 F this morning. Tomorrow morning its gonna be -22 C with the windchill. I was thinking about taking a break but fuck it after watching that Im gonna walk in there like the terminator. Inspiring!

    Any thoughts on my general routine would be really appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    * AM; get up, out the door before the sun rises. Swim in cold sea water. "Make like the Sphinx" pose on shoreline. (All done on a 21 hour fasted stomach.)
    * Afterwards, eat and drink for 3 hours, then IF for the remaining 21 hours of each day. Try to maximise my sun exposure by eating outside. Lots of marine food. I do begin eating with quite a bit of fruit though.
    * When sun goes down, blue light blockers go on, and home lighting is *very* minimal.

    (Rinse and repeat.)

    Curiously, I'm finding that my Raynaud's syndrome symptoms are clearing up, which I'm very pleased about.

    These are English guys Jack, not Irish , big difference ;)

    Plus they are wearing 8mm wetsuits . I have surfed in Ireland on snowy days in a 3-4mm suit. Hardest part is not in the sea , it's getting changed at the car before and after .

    For any following Lewis Pugh .. This guy is doing ultimate CT

    Sounds good but you need to hack the plumbing in your house and office with Raynaud's. Why????
    YOUR DRINKING WATER AND PLUMBING: The PVC pipes we use to carry drinking water are a polymer of vinyl chloride—one of the most biotoxic substances known to man. In the very first study about the dangers of vinyl chloride, published by Patty in 1930, it was disclosed that exposure of test animals to just a single short-term high dose of vinyl chloride caused liver damage. The damage in the liver likely affects how you can recycle protons in the key 3 metabolic pathways. This effects how deuterium is placed into ribose so it could effect epigenetic programming and mitochondrial function to lead to some agressive diseases.

    In 1997 the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concluded that the development and acceptance by the PVC industry of a closed loop polymerization process in the late 1970s "almost completely eliminated worker exposures" and that "new cases of hepatic angiosarcoma in vinyl chloride polymerization workers have been virtually eliminated." The liver is a hydrgeon furnace and it really re-creates the sun in our body when you understand it. Wallace has several video where actually says this and agree with my theory.

    Monomer leaching is possible and Vinyl chloride can have acute dermal and ocular effects. Dermal exposure effects are thickening of skin, edema, decreased elasticity, local frostbites, blistering, and irritation. The complete loss of skin elasticity expresses itself in Raynaud’s Phenomenon. The US EPA and FDA limit vinyl chloride in drinking water to 0.002 ppm. Chronic exposure leads to common forms of respiratory failure (emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis) and focused hepatotoxicity (hepatomegaly, hepatic fibrosis). Continuous exposure can cause CNS depression including euphoria and disorientation. Most drinking water pipes are made with PVC in modern home construction. Consider findaspring.com or use bottled spring water.

    also the plumbing alters the structure of the water in such a way it's unfit to consume. And, your hot water tank contains toxic chemicals as well - so taking a shower/bath exposes you to dangerous substances.

    Dr. Jacques Benveniste, a French medical researcher, discovered certain scientific properties of water which defy explanation by the tenets of mainstream physics. The science he developed, Digital Biology, is based upon two breakthrough observations he proved in experiments that have since been duplicated by other scientists.

    Training Update

    I've relocated to the west coast of Ireland. Low population density, sea and mountains, simpler life.

    No running on the treadmill or on busy roads.

    This is my run near where we now live. Its an area in Ireland known as "The Kingdom", and you can see why.

    Just wrote a big Patreon post on energy pathways in a simple but not simpler way.

    I allude to how we might only account for 25% of our energy source through biochemical pathways.... difficult to write in laymans terms. Very few in the sporting world discuss this or are even aware of this area. Your tribe is small Jack, mine is smaller.


    Back to how this makes you a more connected athlete. So if you know that you have several other systems to activate, you will look into the ways in which to do so. In order for the adaptation to occur, the stimulus must resonate.

    If those stimuli can come from your nutrition, your training , your lifestyle and your environment, then you start realizing that you've been trapped in comfort for too long. The comfort is the bracketed research/guidelines/recommendations that you think is all you have to follow. But when you start learning about how the human body truly functions and what we still don't know, then you start to look outside the box.
