    Finished read Epi-Paleo Rx.
    The last chapter & appendix(s) were mind blowing, and immensely practical.
    I've never thought of evolution and where we are from that perspective.
    Readjusting dietary composition based on that.
    Looking to take in more omega 3 and cap omega 6.
    Essentially, +DHA

    Also looking to take CT up a notch or 2.
    .
    Time series is REALLY eye opening.
    I'm reading into intra-nasal red light therapy after listening to the Dr Kruse's recent interview with Luke Storey.
    http://www.lukestorey.com/lifestyli...e-surviving-the-city-with-spiritual-science-3

    I'm stuck in-doors facing a computer all the time.
    (I get as much sun as I can (I'm thankful to be at the equator!) during late morning!)
    While nothing major is up, and I'm in good health, an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.
    Why wait for sh*t to hit the fan before taking action?
    "Optimal" is about increasing in knowledge, and then applying it.
    .
    I've started reading Napoleon Hill's "Interview with the Devil".
    It's about changing minds & how that's linked to success.
    What's the right attitude? What's the wrong one?
    Finding it insightful.
    The right attitude and an open mind,
    The willingness to learn continually and question the existing status quo.

    Sun:
    Been getting quite abit of sun, as previously mentioned.
    Now when I see good sunlight (which is often, thank God for 1.35° N of Equator!), I'm like WOOHOO!
    Been making it a point to sleep earlier, reduce lights, lean towards an Epi-Paleo diet, kill wifi etc.

    I am noting
    (1) Increase in Energy Levels
    (2) Sharper Cognition (my mind remains sharp, even after 8hours of number crunching, minimal coffee)
    (3) Increase in weight and lean muscle mass (I've maintain my weight range for 15yrs, so this is new. Been doing some gymnastic stuff for joint/tendon mobility)
    (4) I sleep damn well
    (5) Circadian/Bio Rhythm seems to be pretty good (I wake automatically @ abt 645am or earlier. When I do, I'm not groggy)
    .

    Magnetico:

    I'm saving up for a Magnetico. Figure it's worth it.
    Never liked spending $, but I think this has good value.
    What price do you pay for health?
    1 ounce of prevention is worth a tonne of cure.
    We live in Singapore and work in the Central Business District.
    I think EMF mitigation is a must

    (any other links, please send away!)

    .
    CT:
    Cold showers (well, as cold as they get here @ the Equator...)
    Ice ain't cheap here.
    Am looking into re-useable ice cubes.
    Bro-in-law said they use similar to whisky and other chilling related goods.

    Will be kicking off the CT protocol.
    I'm really excited (about freezing my ass off haha), because as it is, the combination of advise I've gotten from the forum & Dr. Kruse has proven good for my family & myself.
    .

    Finished reading through part 1 to 4 of Time.
    Omg. Brainfry. But new knowledge and understanding is how we evolve and advance as individuals.

    .

    Water:

    I bought this recently,
    http://www.vitelwater.com.au/Test-results.html

    Water tastes better. Helps reduce chlorine & fluoride content in water (so the test says...any comments on this welcomed).

    Rev Osmosis/Spring water here (Singapore) is STUPID expensive.
    .

    Reading List:
    Time Series
    Ubiq 24 (as Recc'd by the good docto)
    CT series

    Health & Light, John Ott
    The Fourth Phase of Water, Gerald Pollack
    The Vital Question, Power Sex & Suicide, Nick Lane
    Going Somewhere, Andrew Marino
    Overpowered, Martin Blank

    Essentially, EMF & Light, Water, Mitochondria.
    I want to find out how to optimize my environment.
    .
    EMF Mitigation is huge on my list, as I see that technology will NOT stop.
    Singapore is moving towards "Smart Nation" which means EMF f***ing EVERYWHERE in the near future.

    Any links on EMF mitigation WELCOMED!

    .
    Given the ridiculous amount of stuff to read, at work and for Optimal Health,
    I've found Tim Ferriss' speed reading gig helpful:

    Hi LP;

    You are wearing glasses, get them off.
    1 degree of equator, use the sun to the max, to the max skin area.
    Make sure that you skin see sun often enough so it does not loose its conditioning.
    Newer use anything for skin protection.
    UV does not penetrate glass. (Very sunny room is useless as a source of UV, vit A & D).
    What counts is direct sun to skin nothing in between.
    (Practically) you cannot get too much sun (when skin is hardened).
    Drink plenty of water, but not too much.
    Spring water.
    When your urine is light in color you got enough water.
    When your vit D is
    Vitamin D (25-Hydroxyvitamin D)(250nmol/L=100.16ng/mL)
    you got plenty of sun,
    but you can also go 50% higher.


    Nanny with diabetes.
    Feed her in a way that promotes low insulin.
    goal for a fasting insulin 2-3
    eat once a day, end eating 4-6 hrs before bed time.
    it is even better to skip meals twice a week.
    That will cure her of diabetes and likely of high BP.

    Do not eat fish or krill oils.
    DHA is being discussed as highly beneficial, which is true.
    But that is highlighting important item.
    Eventually everything else is also important but less discussed.
    We want everything
    in just right amounts.

    You may want to do blood test for fatty acids and figure out your particular situation, then adjust your diet accordingly.
    This test:
    Fatty Acid Profile, Comprehensive (C8-C26), Serum
    Make sure that you avoid using tests provided by fish oils salesman (for obvious reasons).

    I think that there is possible problem with blueblockers.
    They were invented to fool Mother Nature and to protect us from blue light after sundown.
    We need blue light from sunrise to sunset (to give information about passing time to our pineal gland).
    Well, this days, during day time looking at computer screen or fluorescent lights in the office we are getting (some) excess of blue light.
    So blueblockers have some justification but harder to define.
    On the other end of spectrum, we would benefit from additional red and IRA.


    New indoor lighting is coming, trying to recreate more natural light frequencies and intensities.
    Changing intensities ~~ passing time.
    Look up those that use quantum dots.
    Tell us more about them when you get them.

    After sunset, the only light that will not interfere with Circadian Rhythm is red.
    You may want to use red and IRA lights at night.
    Preferably no light at all during sleep time.

    Being at equator will make it hard to do CT.
    You may consider chillers.
    They come with variety of power and sizes.
    Active Aqua Chiller, 1/4 HP
    https://www.amazon.com/Active-Aqua-AACH25-Chiller-HP/dp/B008HV7VKG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1485806505&sr=8-1&keywords=water chiller hydroponic 1 2 hp

    Be careful about nnEMF and specially when
    mitigating nnEMF
    Some of the ways of mitigating nnEMF may actually increase them.
    Specially around solar and windmill powered houses (that store electricity in batteries) and some types of electrical heating.
    Capacitive filters that are offered for mitigation of nnEMF will create dirty electricity.

    Make sure that you do not use grounding sheets
    that
    are grounded to apartment ground.
    That is asking for a trouble.
    But if you can sink a grounding rod deep into ground, (far enough from civilization), then you are ok.
    Population density is a big factor.

    I think that there is considerable misconception about structured water.
    By structured water people understand it as EZ (easy water).
    4th phase water
    EZ water requires tiny spaces to exist.
    Those spaces are of the size of body cells or even less.
    EZ water is of gel consistency.
    We do not drink EZ or structured water.
    We drink good liquid water, spring water.
    When that water gets to the right places (by law of physics) it changes its phase to EZ.
    More or less, alkalanization, magnetization, IR, UV etc, may have or may not have influence.
    But make sure to get good spring water.

    When water changes phase heat is added or removed.
    steam to or from liquid
    ice to or from liquid
    I am looking for that (latent) heat when liquid water changes to EZ and possibly any other factors,
    please help

    Supplementing with vitamins and micronutrients does not make much sense,
    unless you have a way of testing and finding status before and after.
    The often pushed vitamins are usually worthless even if of good quality.
    You have to have a way to figure out the quantity that you need.
    I mean personally you, not the average person.
    I do this type of supplementation,
    but I have available testing that you likely do not have in Singapore.
    I use

    Hi JanSz,

    Thank you very much for taking the time to reply.
    Allow me time to read through throughly and digest what you are saying.
    I already have questions bubbling up from what you are saying.

    E = MC^2 & Leptin

    I was reading EMF2, following the rabbit trail from Leptin Reset.
    (Fascinating, I must say)
    And so, little epiphany abt why Dr Kruse goes on endlessly about electrons.
    E=MC^2 is a universal equation.
    Since we are all governed by the laws of physics, this applies to us as well.
    However, in relation to biological beings, the equation is re-written, with C^2 being the main driver.
    C^2 being total electron volume in the system (body).


    C^2 = E/M
    Thus, according to this,
    Drop in C^2 results in a Large Non-Linear drop in Energy; Drop in 1 unit of C ∝ SqRt (E);
    If E is required for life, it makes sense then lifespan is shortened.

    Drop in C^2 results in a Disproportional increase in Mass; C ∝ SqRt (1/M)
    Reason for this, is that the body tries to hoard fat to offset the consistent loss of C^2, and/or anticipating future loss.
    So to be slightly more accurate,
    Fat storage is due to (1) Consistent electron loss OR (2) Electron “Fuel Gauge” (aka Leptin) is broken.
    To be accurate, and blunt!, more electrons = good, less = bad! =)
    This is why sunlight and grounding are good for us. Non-food electron intake.

    This is why Leptin is the lynchpin.
    This is why, if you brute force and up your electron intake (assuming a working fuel gauge), lotsa things get sorted out.
    Not to mention massive amounts of Energy, and mass optimization.
    Now the question is how else to optimize the rest of the body’s sub-systems, in order to “tune” the machine (body) optimally.

    C^2 = E/M is like the “mother” of all biological equations, so to speak.
    It will govern the rest of the equations.

    Personally, the elegance of this is just beautiful.
    It is consistent.
    It also means, that the rest of the laws of physics (should) also apply to biology.
    Faraday’s Laws, Heisenberg, Planck, etc. Should all apply.
    The thing is, a matter of how.
    It’s viewing biology through the lens of physics.
    I am thoroughly enjoying this journey.

    C^2 = E/M also reminds me of the “big picture” governing Brazilian jiu jitsu.
    It’s a complex art with hundreds of techniques.
    However, if you take a bird’s eye view, the goal is: “seek a dominant position”, for superior advantage.

    Summarize a few hundred into just 1 line.
    “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler” – Einstein
    .

    CT
    CT helps to shrink the distance electrons need to travel within mitochondria.
    Decrease in distance increases the body’s “electron/unit volume” ratio.
    If the body is indeed electromagnetic & semiconducting in nature (I got the books, but need to read em’), then cold will increase the current flow, meaning higher speed of electron transmission throughout the system.
    Cold increases electron efficiency by increasing the current, thus magnifying the magnetic field.
    CT deals with magnetism.
    Magnetico is good, for the same principal reason.

    Hi JanSz,

    Sun & Water:
    I try to max skin surface area exposure to direct sun.
    No glasses on.

    Water aplenty.

    Nanny:
    Cut her carbs, up fat and protein + seafood.
    Diabetes has receeded.
    No eating 4hrs before bed time.
    How is intermittent fasting helpful for high BP?

    DHA:
    Yes, natural is better.
    But why not supplment?
    I understand that through processing, iodine and other elements are stripped out.

    Blublockers:
    Only @ night bro~
    Thanks for the tip

    Lighting:
    Am waiting for the natural lighting tech to come in as well.
    Am switching home lights to incandescence since it has has full spectrum.
    Better than LEDs & flourescence IMO.
    Do correct me if I'm wrong.

    I happen to be in an environment, which has flourescence and computers all day.
    Am thinking of increasing Infrared exposure at night to balance out the blue light exposure.

    This rocks! Thanks!

    [qu ote="Limpei, post: 208293, member: 15234"]Hi JanSz,

    Sun & Water:

    No glasses on.

    Water aplenty.

    Nanny:
    Cut her carbs, up fat and protein + seafood.

    How is intermittent fasting helpful for high BP? Loosing weigh should help with BP.

    DHA:
    Yes, natural is better.
    But why not supplment?
    I look at this as a problem of testing fatty acids and making changes that would bring them closer to some ideal position.
    (I am supplementing DHA). Supplement as last resort only.
    I have found one very good reason why supplementation may be necessary.
    I have found that many people who tested their fatty acids had omega3 high and omega6 low, opposite to what is usually printed.
    Chasing DHA only and doing it with seafood or fish/krill oil does not bring good results.
    That is because the DHA comes with high load of EPA, so we are overloading EPA.


    I understand that through processing, iodine and other elements are stripped out.

    I have not considered the situation that fish/krill oils may be stripped of iodine as a reason for less iodine that goes into mouth. I think it is irrelevant.
    People who eat more seafood over lifetime, have an edge over those who do not.
    But,
    I am of opinion that (in this days) we are exposed to so many halides that it is profitable to have excess of (iodine + potassium iodide).
    I am also highlighting that it is about lifetime seafood consumption, any seasonal fad is irrelevant.
    It takes long time, years, when supplementing with Lugol's to replace undesirable halides.

    Better than LEDs & flourescence IMO.
    Do correct me if I'm wrong.

    The bottom line is, no blue light after sundown.
    That is natural bottom line.
    Fluorescent light, among other, creates (indoor) dirty electricity
    Many, likely most of us live in technical word, full of artificial light and non native Electromagnetic frequencies.
    Worst, we live so close to each other, that our electric/magnetic load affects our neighbors.
    On top of that our life is arranged on the schedule that is not synchronized with sun.
    After being exposed to discussion on light on this Jack Kruse forum,
    I have created:
    Artificial lighting management for a human locked in small room.
    https://forum.jackkruse.com/index.php?threads/pg-e2-ratio.6427/page-4#post-201738
    Incandescent light is better than LED light
    but it is still light that stops your pineal gland from making melatonin (at the time when it should be making it)
    I have seen on bulletin boards in Europe a discussions about good light for humans.
    From what I recall, light using quantum dots is in vogue now. Strong, easy to manipulate frequencies, so computer program can change frequency content and brightness according to someones pre-concieved idea of what is desirable. There can be more than one routine, ambiance, school time, exam time, relax time, etc.

    Light from electricity and other electric power comes with EMF.
    There is variety of ways to contaminate electricity and modify its EMF.
    There are ways to filter them out, some or most of those that are monitored.
    One have to be careful doing DIU modifications or hiring experts.
    Filters are used. They are often numerous, small, hooked up in parallel.
    They have to be placed in strategic locations usually by expert.
    One must watch out to not to make any (electrical or magnetic changes), because that may defeat the whole plan.
    There are, (often large) filters that must be hooked in line.
    They can manage big load of electrical dirt, but that have to be in-comming dirt.
    The do not affect electrical dirt created inside residence.

    Correct me if I'm wrong:
    EPA is classified as Omega 3, and helps inhibit production of arachidonic acid (AA), an Omega 6 fatty acid.
    Why would that be bad?
    What would you reccomend for DHA if not seafood/krill/(oysters) as reccomended here?
    Optimal Omega 3 : Omega 6 = 1:1 [not verified exactly why, but this is what I got from the reading/podcasts by Dr K so far]
    (I'm trying to understand your thought process more clearly)


    I understand that through processing, iodine and other elements are stripped out.

    I'm taking a look @ the Seaweed list in one of Dr Kruse's posts (Brain Gut 6 I think).
    We eat seaweed regularly and I supplement lightly with potassium iodide.

    I happen to be in an environment, which has flourescence and computers all day.
    Am thinking of increasing Infrared exposure at night to balance out the blue light exposure.
    Good idea, Red & IRA

    Why not UVB as well?
    IRA + Red for building EZ.
    UVB for creating/maintaining it.

    Blue Light Mitigation Hacks (my thoughts):

    I think I'm getting too much blue light, due to work.

    Solution/Mitigation:
    1
    Balance out with Purple & Red (UVB & InfraRed to be specific)
    i) Lamps, at night
    Avoid mercury vapour lamps

    ii) IntraNasal red light @ night.


    2
    BluTech / Gunnors glasses in office

    3
    Blue filters on phone.

    4
    Reduce(d) colour temp and colour of screens in office.
    "Why do your screens look jaundiced!!"
    "Colour temperature, circadian rhythm management"
    *Blank stares*
    #Whatever



    COMMENTS/CRITICISM welcomed please.
    I want a better life. Don't give a damn abt ego.

    [Yes, I will look through this Jan:
    https://forum.jackkruse.com/index.php?threads/pg-e2-ratio.6427/page-4#post-201738]
    .

    Doing:
    I get a good amount of sun.
    Running CT and need to get into full immersion in future.
    Magnetico (to purchase)
    Blueblockers @ night.
    Leptin styled eating (titrated brekky so I dont eat until dinner. not to mention I'm lazy to eat frequently, so this works).
    Grounding + Sun.

    I think it's VERY interesting to note, that I've shed weight.
    I'm thankfully atheletic in build.
    Upon implementing the above, I've dropped 4kg and gotten stronger/ripped in the past 1mth in particular.
    [Context = Stable weight range for past 15yrs. I've been @ higher end @ 80kg since starting gymnastic bodies styled training, but recently dipped sharply back to 76kg, while maintaining an increase in muscle mass. For context, approx 183cm, 6foot]
    Even the wife noticed.

    "In Nutshell" Summary of Stuff I've Been Reading:

    Lifestyle change to,
    Max Redox
    Max DC Electric Current

    .
    Blue light in mrg = Hormone release from pituary
    Perpetual Blue = Perpetual hormone release = Adrenal Fatigue (and shit load of other problems)
    .
    Time move faster = Shortern telomeres = Bye bye faster.
    .
    Heal in the red light.
    .
    ///
    Learning/Reading:
    I got through 1/3 of "Time" series, and my head hurts. LOL (but I love it).
    I've read Hormone 101 (and also love the technicality of "HOW" the biohacks work).
    Decided to give "Time" a pause, and read through all the Rx first (Leptin, Mitochondria, Jet Lag, etc etc etc)
    Practical implementation first, then figure out how/why it works.

    I've listened through 2x all of Dr K's podcasts.
    The hell. He's devoted SO much time to education.
    Sometimes he sounds like a hard ass, but frankly, for ANYONE to give so much TIME to this (and the endless blog series),
    there's only 1 conclusion: he really cares (gives alota shit) about people.

    I think that's why I fundamentally am willing to trust his writing, and do first before asking "how/why".
    (Though I'm also the sort of person who HAS to know WHY. Hence, love the blogs).

    Books otw:
    Life on the Edge
    Going Somewhere
    Overpowered (I want to know how to mitigate EMF)
    The Body Electric
    The Fourth Phase of Water
    Health and Light

    I get those reactions too. Oddly enough, some people really like it and also start using the software, and others really dislike it.

    [qu ote="Limpei, post: 209104, member: 15234"]DHA:
    Yes, natural is better.
    But why not supplment?
    I look at this as a problem of testing fatty acids and making changes that would bring them closer to some ideal position.
    (I am supplementing DHA). Supplement as last resort only.
    I have found one very good reason why supplementation may be necessary.
    I have found that many people who tested their fatty acids had omega3 high and omega6 low, opposite to what is usually printed.
    Chasing DHA only and doing it with seafood or fish/krill oil does not bring good results.
    That is because the DHA comes with high load of EPA, so we are overloading EPA.


    Correct me if I'm wrong:
    EPA is classified as Omega 3, and helps inhibit production of arachidonic acid (AA), an Omega 6 fatty acid.
    Why would that be bad?
    What would you reccomend for DHA if not seafood/krill/(oysters) as reccomended here?
    Optimal Omega 3 : Omega 6 = 1:1 [not verified exactly why, but this is what I got from the reading/podcasts by Dr K so far]
    (I'm trying to understand your thought process more clearly)


    Everyone is different.
    I resolved to minimizing my seafood consumption. I still eat it, but much less.
    Additionally I eat vegetable source DHA supplement
    and
    I have 2 tbsp/day of Nutiva Hemp seed oil.
    On the long range I hope to wean out of DHA supplementation.
    There is manufactured 4:1 oil (expensive and manufactured)
    Hemp seed oil have a ratio (LA/ALA) real close to (4:1)
    and additionally it have some GLA that is often low.

    Nothing is only good.
    Nothing is only bad.
    Too much good=bad.

    I recommend testing, I use this test at LabCorp or mayo Clinic.
    Fatty Acid Profile, Comprehensive (C8-C26), Serum

    Omega6/Omega3 industry is already entrenched so much, that there are Fatty Acids tests that always tell you that you are low on fish oils or seafood consumption.

    On the other hand there is a high correlation between high Omega3, low Omega6 and neolithic diseases.
    Neolithic disease= disease that was not around before invention of electricity.
    One example here:
    http://bodybio-wellness.com/report-fatty-acid.html
    You can recreate chart below using results from the test I posted above,
    and see where you place.
    One of mine 4 years ago is here:
    https://forum.jackkruse.com/index.php?threads/pg-e2-ratio.6427/#post-101886

    Saying Omega6/Omega3 ratio is not descriptive.
    There are about 12 variables there.
    But, I think, the ratio have its beginning when Yehuda figured that
    (long term) eating fats in the ratio of
    (LA/ALA)=(4:1)
    results in greatly improved fatty acids status as (observed on patients) and (verified in testing), Omega6 and Omega3.
    None of the tested fatty acids, when at optimal level, have ratio of (4:1)
    Omega3--->ALA -- a-Linolenic Acid, C18:3w3
    Omega6--->LA -- Linoleic Acid, C18:2w6

    I happen to be in an environment, which has flourescence and computers all day.
    Am thinking of increasing Infrared exposure at night to balance out the blue light exposure.
    Good idea, Red & IRA

    Why not UVB as well?
    IRA + Red for building EZ.
    UVB for creating/maintaining it.
    [/quote]

    And why not UVA? (Silly question). Both are in.
    Look up Red Sperti in
    Artificial lighting management for a human locked in small room.

    Monitor your vit D levels to figure out if your natural sun exposure plus Red Sperti give you results you desire.
    Adjust either, preferably natural sunlight.

    Goal (without vit D supplementation)
    Vitamin D (25-Hydroxyvitamin D)(250nmol/L=100.16ng/mL)

    note:
    that is a tall order

    I'm not allowed to install it @ work.
    BUT, I find you can reduce (1) Contrast (2) Brightness (3) Blue light level to achieve similar effects.

    Hey JanSz,

    So in essence, full UVA/UVB + InfraRed then.
    Does it matter what wavelength of InfraRed?

    I'll look through that Thread.

    Eat foods supporting vit D & A

    vit D, foods containing sulfur to help in production of vit D,sulfate
    garlic, onions, leeks, MSM

    vit A, carotenoids, carrots, peppers

    .
    I do all above and
    Spectracell Micronutrient Analysis
    still make me eat 25000iu/day vit A from fish
    when I reduced to 25000iu/(EOD) I got borderline results, so changed back to ED.

    Since beginning of Sept 2016 after I got Red Sperti, I stopped eating 10000iu/day of vit D.
    I use Sperti 16min/day.
    Have not tested yet.

    I've started to use Dminder to track my vit D status. Lower than I thought, but I'm running in the data.
    Sun is STRONG here, and I'm turning quite brown.
    Surprisingly, it's almost full bodied despite me being in office wear during exposure time (no I can't strip naked and run around the central business district. haha).
    I am noting strong calming effects from the sun. Very similar in fact to working out (@ home, usually evening, no extra lighting... no blue light for sure).
    .
    After some reading, I've been trying out Acetyle L-Carnitine & L-Carnitine, 500mg/day each to optimize for Mitochondrial function.

    I've ordered in a pair of Melanin infused glasses for work to block out blue light.

    In the process of ordering in a set of Magneticos for the family. I figure wth, I hardly spend on anything, I might as well invest in our long term well being.
    Sleep has improved significantly since I've stopped using the computer @ night. When I do (for work), it's with blue blockers.
    .
    I am exploring improving our water. Ordered in Fourth Phase of Water.
    Wondering if exposing it to UV and IR light will help build it's charge.
    Currently use Vitel Water beads, which Aussie folks test's have shown to reduce flouride etc in the water.
    Water tastes lighter/smoother/easier to drink.

    Am learning proper abt effect of UV and IR on the body, and whether I should do it @ night pre-sleep.
    Conflicted at the moment, because (1) Good because of day time exposure to blue (2) Will it screw up my circadian rhythm, since I probably will be doing this at like 10pm.
    .
    Just reading a shit load of Dr K's posts and connecting the dots before I do anything drastic.
    Don't want to do shit blindly.

    That said, I have a strong conviction to change ALL our lights to warm yellow < 1800k.
    (Those white lights piss me off now)
    Well we have to have lights. Damage minimization.

    @JanSz I am going through your stuff.
    Thorough. Need to digest proper, amidst many other things.

    2/27/2017 I have drawn blood for my testing.
    Should know my vit D results in 2-3 weeks. Will post them.
