    I am a middle aged, red head, Oregon country gal aiming to optimize my life. My best sermon of how to live is by example. I love to teach, but action speaks louder than words!
    I have begun the leptin reset and epi-paleo diet and drink spring water. I use the magnetico, grounding, CT, sun bathing, blue blocker glasses, red and black lights in the house.
    I am in menopause. I have gained 35 pounds in the last couple years. My goal is to get to my optimal weight, eliminate back and joint pain, build muscle strength, energy and think more clearly.

    In February, I made a big keto soup on Sundays. I ate it during the week. It worked great for staying faithful to diet plan! I lost 5 # the first week, maintained my weight the rest of the month and then gained 5# the last couple days of the month.
    I am wondering if hormones would help.

    My plan for now is: more sun, more CT, more grounding and less cream in my tea.

    Tried progesterone cream. Really helped with energy and brain fog. Went to Dr for bloodwork.. Began weighing food for more precision with portions for my diet. Lost 5 pounds this week. Bkft smoothie: coconut milk, lettuce and 1/4 cup blueberries plus 6 oz fish. Dinner 4 oz salmon and 1 cup salad and 1/2 cup cooked veggies.

    I was really shocked when I talked to the receptionist about my labs and she said I had zero hormone (not sure which one, until later)! No wonder I need help! I picked up my lab report and it said: Prog-<0.5; Est-<15; test-26; TSH-2.52; T4- 1.3; T3- 3; vit D- 30. I decided to take some bioavailable hormones. I have more energy and have lost 10 pounds already! I am wondering if having my tubes tied means I am forced to take hormones...

    Not a surprise given where you are at. Trashed hormone panels are what the Quantum Thermodynamic series is all about.
    Hormone crash is a low O2 surface environment. When oxygen drops cells have to use glycolysis and the PPP because they cannot use the TCA and urea cycle. This means that immune function is suboptimal when oxygen levels drop. This is why mitochondrial diseases of aging exist. Therefore it can be made worse with any deficit in AM morning sunlight too. What does pseudohypoxia (low NAD+) mean to our hormone panel? The cost of a high aerobic capacity is low fertility. This is why the pregnenolone steal syndrome exists too and why males suffer low testosterone and females have an upside down PG/E2 ratio in menopause and why they dehydrated. People forget that pregnenolone is made from cholesterol and pregnenolone needs Vitamin and T3 to convert to the sex steroid hormones. Blue light via the eye or skin destroy Vitamin A and T3 production. It is no wonder it happens. It is more shocking people do not see how the pieces fit. This process is not what the anti-aging docs think or sell to the public. We need to be medical nihilists in a blue-lit world. Cortisol over sex steroid production is due to a lowered melatonin level and the inability to use of oxygen in the TCA and urea cycles as the terminal electron acceptor in human mitochondria. This is increased in a really bad lit environment indoors and out of the sun. In a women’s gut at menopause, their LES allows more O2 to leach into the gut lumen and this helps simplifies the gut flora changing light release to the enterocytes and affect activation of the GALT. The blue light on th skin at the same time ruins the guts enterocyte clocks forcing the alimentary canal to keep cells normally replaced there too long. This affects the liver’s ability to detox our blood plasma and this lowers immunity as the process continues.

    After reading about the sizes running small, I got the largest kiniki bikini top. I was relieve when it fit perfect! YAY! I have been wearing it with shorts as I build our cabin. We framed up the walls and got the plywood on the outside! The sun at 5000' elevation is stronger than I am used to. I managed to burn a bit in the places that were not used to the sun. I threw on my shirt when guys showed up a few times, but felt it was not see thru. The bioavailable hormones have not increased libido much, but the sun with the kiniki sure did! I was surprised!

    I seem to be losing inches and top size is down a size or two. No more hot flashes or food cravings. More energy: redecorated the whole kitchen, carried the sheets of plywood by myself, hammered lots of nails, lots of hoeing and gardening, lots of outings with the grandkids!

    I have focused on having seafood every day or every meal sometimes. Focused also on lo carb veggies every meal.

    I lost about three dress sizes when on the leptin reset - but weight didn't go down for some time....

    You are doing great!

    You have D- 30
    You should have it D>100
    use max sunlight
    add to it
    30 min/day of this lamp at very short distance
    and keep this lamp on while you are indoor.


    You have Prog-<0.5; Est-<15;
    so you have much more estrogens than progesterone.
    that is a
    recipe to gain growth, either fat or cancer or both
    is proportion between estrogen and progesterone
    you (also) want each of the two categories at optimal level

    You have:
    TSH-2.52; T4- 1.3; T3- 3;
    do not worry much about them

    look mostly at
    and little at RT3
    Sun is #1
    iodine and selenium are close by

    JanSz, wow! I really misspelled your name... Sorry! Thank you for your help!! I usually see myself as very intelligent, but this brain fog is making it difficult to figure stuff out! I have read a lot of your posts! You are very generous with your help! Thank you!

    Not a great day today... Feeling exhausted! Spent the last 2 days putting in our firewood with 3 of my grandkids, while camping at the cabin. It wasn't convenient to eat seafood and I helped the kids eat chips! Also drank coffee mocha for energy! The plumbers are getting their job done! Now, I am enjoying listening to the June webinar while relaxing in my recliner. I am wishing I was outside grounding and sunbathing but the yellow jackets are nasty today! Thinking about getting a lawn recliner that could ground too.

    I am due to recheck my hormones and get another implant of estrogen, but don't want to pay a bunch of money for it. I am wondering if it would be more cost effective to do the hormone boot camp.

    Note added later: I read my journal post above and decided I obviously needed sun. So I exposed myself to the sun and the bees and survived! Actually felt energised! Yay!

    Phosphene you are so kind!

    When I was in my 20's I never did find a birth control that worked. Even got pregnant using 3 things at once! I had 6 kids and got my tubes tied. Then, remarried to the nicest man in the world who added 3 more!

    I DO have the greatest grandkids! Got a new grandson last week!

    Jack I am just trying to remember what SNP and SAP is... I have been trying to look it up ... Will keep searching for where to find it

    SNP = single nucleotide polymorphisms

    SAP = single amino acid polymorphisms
