dealing with stomach parasites

Been having some stomach problems since the start of the year, so got my digestive system tested. The reason for the test was actually acute sugar sensitivity, where a small amount of sugar, say 2 teaspoons hiding in a nut ‘health bar’ would make me feel crap within a couple minutes. I know most of the serotonin in the body is produced in the stomach so I figured this may have something to do with it. One of the problems detected was Blastocystis which is a stomach parasite. I was prescribed antibiotics which I held off from for a couple weeks while I tried natural methods (Paracea, garlic 3 times a day and 3 drops of MMS hourly for 8 hrs a day for a few days and various probiotics). This didn’t seem to solve the problem so I went with the antibiotics. Just finished that yesterday but still noticing a crash towards the end of the day. So today I watched this video which was all like hey Goji is the greatest thing ever. I stumbled upon it because a natropath I saw recently commented on how my red blood cells were stuck together, so I was looking into that. Seems they are talking about Goji berries, luckily I found some at my local supermarket basically straight away. This lead me back to this guy, who was the reason I have Chaga mushroom powder sitting in my room, which is another thing I need to look into preparing.

Gobi berries cost $7 for 150g at Coles so I think I’ll be snacking on these for a while, so addictive.  I wanted to know a good dose, in this study they took 120ml for a fortnight… although they were taking this stuff and I’m not sure of the potency. I just had a bunch of yoghurt (first time having sugar in a while actually) as well as some  Goji berries and I feel more energised… hmm.. anyway. Will be interesting to experiment with this in the afternoon tomorrow…

Bjj Thursday

Went through second stripe drills.

Head lock escapes;

  • Protect airway and reach around and grab their far arm, pop out to the back.
  • Protect airway and reach around and grab their far arm, block their close leg with my rear facing leg, push them back over this leg and take them down
  • reach out and block their far knee, roll under them.

Guillotine escapes;

  • (arm out) protect airway and reach over their shoulder, block behind their leg and take them down.
  • (arm in) protect airway and reach around their back, block behind their leg and take them down.
  • (arm in being held low) block their far knee, step one leg inside their legs and back from their far knee, swing other leg around their far leg and pull them down over you.

Bjj tonight

learned a sweep from closed guard.

Break their posture by pulling their arm up, and pulling them down with your legs (closed guard). Grab a deep underhook in their armpit and pull it tight. You want to pull that arm and roll them onto their back. So with the free arm grab under their knee and shift away so they fall into the space you make, rolling onto mount.

Andy showed me some stuff after class. Guard pass.

Put your knee into their butt and rotate away, this will allow me to break their guard.

Reminder of setting the kimora from a fake hip bump sweep, or doing both
