    One day mate, one day... I'm not physically ready for the Waves just yet, as I still can't exercise, but it's a long term goal of mine, along with Skiing in a pair of shorts down the Patagonia Mountain Range in South America...

    Do you add onions Audrey - onions are supposed to stop your body absorbing them as much or something like that.

    What do you think is causing your inability to tolerate the Histamine in foods?

    I know you've been here for years and I've read so much of the old threads and you've been actively engaging with the protocols since Day Dot! Has your health gotten worse over the time you've been practicing Jack's stuff?

    Yes will be interesting to know - a naturopath picked up I had a histamine intolerance & all I had to do was stop having any for a couple of weeks & now I'm fine - but always have red onion if I'm eating canned fish & now have no problems

    Bonjour Anne!
    We spent a couple of months travelling around Europe and I had a great time eating and drinking and enjoying all the different cuisines [especially Spain and churros] ......and I really loved all the pubs in England and Ireland and Scotland . I felt great - no issues at all.

    But ....when we got home I continued with all the great food and enjoying way too many cocktails and beer - and I started baking bread and cakes etc. ....damn covid! and it was also Christmas. :confused:

    So long story short ....I went way off the reservation and screwed my gut ... and it is a hard road back. :alien:

    Thanks for being honest and sharing. I think all of that is completely justified, except the beer - I would've gone for Gin.

    If it makes you feel better, at least you didn't find Jack Kruse and start bio-hacking and then move to London from a lovely rural village and go into super high EMF and Mold and start doing extreme crossfit workouts and then boozing every other weekend. *Facepalm*

    Sometimes we have to learn these lessons twice over and much harder to really begin to take care of our physical forms. This world is constantly trying to break us down and we have to fiercely protect our body and our consciousness!

    Also, the journey the second time round has been absolutely spectacular, and has taken me to places spiritually that I never knew existed - back to God - and that's worth every symptom IMO.

    Thanks Sean - I worried that I hadn't explained myself properly.

    when we were staying with friends in England - I did discover sloe gin. I love that stuff

    Life is for living and I wouldn't change one thing about our European adventure and, after all, it was our honeymoon!

    When I look back on it - I really didn't do too bad .....wine with dinner, guiness in wonderful pubs and we discovered Sangria and churros in Barcelona.

    I ate a lot of seafood and steak and all the wonderful hams in Spain.

    When I was really hungry I would buy cheese from the local markets and I did pig out on black pudding - yum.

    When we came home it was cherry, strawberry, peach and mango season ...and I love fruit way too much. For me, fruit is definitely a trigger - way too much sugar.

    Being a human - I know the right things to do - courtesy of Jack ........but sometimes french fries are way too appealing and I will have a couple from my husbands plate.

    The trouble is - my husband can eat anything and I love cooking for him.

    I now eat carnivorish .....so I will have a carrot or a couple of spoons of sweet potato or a slice of home made bread smothered in butter - if I want too. Most of the time I don't tho. If I am confronted with some wonderful food - I will try a little.

    We all make choices every single day that impact our life for good or bad. I try to do the best that I can......now that we know better we must do better.

    Having said all the above - the one thing that destroyed my gut is antibiotics. I needed to have 2 rounds because of a bad infection and still have repercussions.

    Jack spoke on clubhouse yesterday about stupid questions. Our need to ask stupid questions means that we are trying to move forward and are curious...and stupid questions lead to better questions and more knowledge and, most important, skin in the game.

    We are all going to fall/fail sometimes......but it is our ability to get back up, dust ourself off and keep moving forward on this spectacular journey that should make us humble and proud.

    Live, laugh, love, learn to the fullest. I think this is what Jack teaches us when all is said and done.

    This is an exceptional journey of discovery in all areas of our life.

    That was way too long winded - sorry!

    Bitcoin is making me crazy ...what a learning curve this is - yet again!

    I agree on the Antibiotics.... I've taken them far too many times as a teenager, for "tonsilitis", which was really just some Gut Inflammation. I used to get sick 2-3x per year with Tonsilitis and ABs would also be the answer from the Doctor. It's clear to me now that a simplified and low volume Gut Flora is my issue, and opportunitistic microbes like Candida and Bacteria are causing many issues.

    I've gone completely strict because i'm really "done" with all of this shit. I've quit boozing totally and completely quit any foods that don't agree. But, that's only a sacrifice so that in future when my flora rebuilds/ redox improves I can then tolerate much more foods... but I'm really dedicated and most see what I do as extreme, but I believe I can get to my Optimal, and that's so far from where I am. I want to be a Warrior again!

    But we will see. Things are taking a lot longer than I wanted down here in Mexico... one of the biggest issues is that I still work on a Laptop 5 days per week and there is the balance of Friends/ Socialising and WiFi / RF.... living in jungle was so shit lol... you have to find the balance that suits you. The same goes with all those foods that sound great btw.

    I think overall the Food doesn't (and shouldn't) matter to us but the reality is the environments have screwed us so bad we're completely overreacting. Our very recent ancestors as close as our grandparents never had allergies/ histamine issues and auto-immunity.... and their food was terrible too! The shit my Mom used to eat and still eats, and drinks!.... and then I spend 4 years avoiding every carb under the sun and still get sick....

    Frustrating at times but I think as Jack says "optimal is a choice" and I know I could do more. But how much do I want it? That's all our own personal Moon, just like Bitcoin... we all have our own individual "moon".

    I just had a light bulb moment thanks to you Sean.

    I always had tonsillitis as a kid and probably always on antibiotics.

    No bloody wonder I always had gut/hormone issues. I also used to take a drug for acne.

    Jack is just now talking about carnivore on clubhouse .....

    I think AB's and Acne drugs are the two biggest offenders for creating a Fungal/ Candida issue in the Gut. From reading the work of Dr Trowbridge and Dr Crook this last 6-8 months and his work in the 80s on discovering the Candida infections that really Bloomed or Boomed during late 70s and 80s. Likely these drugs were given out much more readily during this period.

    However, we musn't forget that this is also the same time during which we started using Flourescents instead of Incandescents, the spectrum of light changed, also same time John Ott started noticing issues in Children in Schools because of widespread introduction of Televisions into homes.

    My Grandma (teenager in the 50s and 60s) was one of the only people in her whole town to have a TV in late 50s. My Mom however had one pretty much throughout her life 70s/ 80s.

    My Grandma never suffers with fungal issues but has pernicious anemia and some very mild weak bones, but she's 80 now.

    My mom suffers with both fungal issues, and anemia and also rheumathoid arthritis.... she does Sun, RLT and Cold Showers now and is "above it all" right now.

    and then there is Me.... and you can see the issues I have in my journal. Everything. And I had a TV from the get go.... RF, Artificial Light everything.

    At every level down it gets worse the worse the Light is. So, is the Fungus and Dysbiosis an Adaption to a shitty environment? Or is it really a condition that needs attacking?.... I know Jack thinks having Candida is actually good cause I think it allows the Gut to push the Entropy/ shitty environment/ Deuterium into the Candida and out of the Mitochondria.

    I'm warring with this ^ because it causes me so much sufferring.

    What did Jack say about Carnivore? I don't have an iPhone ios so I can't get on it :(

    Basically - that it is a great starting point ....as long as it is heavily weighted in seafood. The guy asking the question was worried that we need fibre and Jack said no - you get what you need from seafood/protein

    Yeah that's what I've found to be true too.... Seafood makes such a difference to carnivore. But clearly, a lot of people can just get better from Beef - cause the testimonials on Shawn Bakers and Saladinos pages are insane. Complete reversals of Gut Issues over and over again, especially Crohn's and Colitis and their concomitant symptoms of Depression and Skin Issues.

    It doesn't seem to be working so smoothly for me though unfortunately, and i have to add Herbs and lots of Seafood and anti-fungal protocols (oregano, charcoal, grapefruit extract)
