What does our ability to tan mean

    When i was a kid i would never tan and jump straight to extra crispy burning.
    Now, im noticing i rarely burn and actually have trouble tanning. The past 4 days ive been in the sun for 3 hours each day, mid-day, without a shirt on in Florida, which is a big step for me. However, wherase in the past i would have been a lobster right now, im barely even tan. I've been noticing this for the past several months as I've slowly worked my way up to this amount of sun
    Im sure that signifies something, im not sure if its good or bad

    Means MSH and POMC are partially working........depending upon the DC electric current and the dopamine and melatonin recycling in Time 9.

    Thanks, Dr. I just read Time 12 and saw the MSH link which made me question it. I had it tested a year ago and it was normal, so tanning and not burning = better use of MSH?
    Ill re-read time 9

    Cool your skin when you are out in the sun.

    Thanks @nonchalant

    I have to be careful about temperature extremes but i do jump in the ocean for a minute when i start to overheat. Too long in the water or sun is bad but im ok if i find the sweet spot.
    Im in the Florida panhandle atm and i have to take as much advantage of sunny days as possible considering they're few and far between. Using the occasional dip to allow me 3-4 hours of sun is a big step for me

    Sunny days, few and far between? In late March.? Spring training? Panhandle of Florida or Oklahoma? I'm confused. :)

    In context, im not long removed from California where its constant sun and dry. Since getting to FL its been sunny maybe 50-60% of the time and the rain and humidity effect me. Feel noticably worse than in Cali

    Hey @Jude. Thank you, you're always so supportive. Can't really say my health is improved but im making small improvements in therapies. Its a slow process but hopefully will pay off at some point soon!

    A hippo does not need to know quantum mechanics because he is built to just live it. Humans have the curious ability to think and screw things up that should come naturally...........become the hippo. You won't need the physics.........but humans are curious........hence I have some interesting things to share in 36 hours in the April webinar..............of 2016

    I agree with the analogy, and i like the simplicity of it but for many of us it doesn't work that smoothly most of the time.
    Ex: i went in the water 2 days ago after an hour in the sun. Water temp was 61 and felt pretty nice actually. Was in up to my chest for 4, 5 minutes and when i came out i could tell i overdid it- POTS returned, muscle pain and weakness, motor function decline etc.. Next morning i got in the sun with a tank top for about 10 minutes and that crashed me right back down.
    For the hippo, these would work. What changes in late stage disease? Is there any way to anticipate if something would have a positive/negative reaction? So far it's trial and error, and errors are really costly.

    Every time I follow "the guys" protocols I get immediate subtle, moderate, or outrageous positive effects, all of which seem to improve with time and seem to remain permanent.My amazment is not that they work, but that I don't go to further extremes to do even more. AND FASTER ( I blame my wife:) ) I'M IN AWE THAT YOU KEEP PLUGGING AWAY AT THIS. VERY INSPIRING!

    Aerose, I have been where you are. Every little damn thing I did was a huge crash, errors costly, colossal difficulties.
    Here is what I did. I told myself that my journey is my own and I am the top priority.
    Staying up til 11 induces a 6 week crash? its out.
    One smidgen of gluten causes difficulty walking for a month? It's out.
    Your job right now is to stay in the tight tunnel that you are on. It is tighter for you than many others. It will not always be this way.
    Every step is closer to the light and the tunnel will expand larger and larger as you go. There is no way to anticipate a reaction. Accept them, learn from them, and keep going.
    Use that internet meme of what success looks like v. what success really looks like and keep going.
    Also, use the salesman's mantra of "No's can actually be "not right now's"
    I predict that a year from now, you will be in the sun with a tank top on for more than an hour, with no crashes at all! :)

    What are the "guys protocols"? You´re not talking about Jack´s protocols in general, are you? I don´t think so at least.

    It is not smooth because no one realizes how critical the environment is because they don't fully understand what me and Wallace are really saying.

    Yes, the" guy" is Jack. I didn't think I was being that opaque. :)

    I now have this same issue. I used to tan quite well in my teens and 20s. Now in my mid-30s I find that I turn red after hours in the sun. It’s not quite a burn and there is no pain, but I definitely don’t turn brown like I used to. What is the protocol to return back to normal tanning with sun exposure?
