Darce from turtle/back control

If you are in turtle and they have an arm over your back in an underhook. You have hands across the chin to prevent chokes. You can lock their arm with your bicep and roll pulling them over your back. This will land in side control. Block their knees with your hands, back your butt into their shoulder, rolling them onto their side. Reach the arm closest them under their chin, and continue rotating your butt around so your around 90 degrees to them. grip the back of their head with your bottom arm. Bring other bicep to the hand on their head and grip the bicep. Squeeze the darce = win.

From the other position, controlling them in turtle, you can rest an arm over their neck, and bring the other arm under their chest to clasp in the gable grip, from here you can maneuver to the darce

Mark Sisson on Night Eating

In this article, Mark talks about night eating being associated with hormone regulation. Well would you look at that…! all the buzz words, Thyroid, Adrenals, Cortisol… Yup links me back to hypothyroid..!

On that I saw a doc who recommended.. ehh something I lost the piece of paper, and also agreed that buying iodine was a good idea 🙂 Which I just did 😛

Podcasts: Meditation and Bone broth

Meditation is something I have been finding surprisingly beneficial lately and so I listened to this podcast with Kelly Howell about her success with different meditation technologies. I listened to a couple of the binaural meditations on her website, unguided and yet found the music distracting. I’ve been finding the best thing for me is just to spend 20 minutes in quiet by myself. Even taking 10 deep breaths can be really useful.

Interestingly I heard Franco talk of practising neutrality meditation as a method to clear sinus issues as well.. interesting…

I listened to this Bone Broth podcast which refers to their page here. This sounds like a possible solution for my joint issues, so I’ll be making this tonight. The simplest recipe I found for the 3 chicken carcasses I’ve been saving is below, very well done video and less than 3 minutes long, exactly what I wanted 🙂

Then I copied this idea for storing:
“After I strain the bones out of my stock using a giant strainer, I let the pot cool to room temperature. Then, I ladle as much as I think can be used for cooking/drinking purposes over the course of 4 or 5 days, and I store that amount in an airtight storage container in the fridge. Whatever’s left gets frozen—but in usable portion sizes instead of a giant ice brick. Over the years, I’ve tried ice cube trays and muffin tins, but my favourite way to freeze broth is with a silicone baking mold.”

blood ph

Something new to me re health is blood ph level. Recently I heard Stephen heurer and Wim Hoff talk about blood PH in regard to the bodys health. Wim Hoff talks about alkalising the blood with his breathing method, where Stephen mentions at the end of this podcast about how viruses/bacteria interact with food in the body relating to the bodys ph.

putting Candida into a picture

I think possibly the Candida (/other bacteria and unwanted stowaways) had caused sugar regulation to become somewhat unbounded, in a somewhat parasitic fashion. Just in the sense that if my sugar regulation has been thrown far out of homoeostasis, its regulation control system is super confused, like a control loop for a fridge when the door is left open, except way more variables than just 1. In thinking back on today’s reading.

Update 9/11/16:
I read this page re Dr Daniels turpentine protocol, reading the comments is motivating to see others having success, especially with joint pain.

Stephen Heuer on Bravo Yogurt


In this episode around 12 minutes in Stephen says a 10 day juice cleanse can be one of the best things you can do to clean out your intestines. This is something to look into! He mentions doing it with herbs to help the process along. I’d love a written protocol by him of how to do this!

Mp3 Link – stephen heuer on your health and healing, april 18, 2016, hour one

They mention a book Tissue Cleaning Through Bowel Management. I found several versions on amazon. Comments such as this one make me want to look further into which method to look into this, although like all the reviews for the several books gave 5 stars and sprayings of words like hallelujah.. so I guess just reading one will be a great start, especially since gut health is seemingly my biggest area of focus at the moment.. I’m going to order this one paperback as well as go through the kindle sample I downloaded.


Around half an hour in they talk about Bravo yogurt and the tone they describe this stuff makes me really glad my 3 packets arrived yesterday. Bravo is available from Stephen here.

I’m also going back over this (july 18, 2016) episode to get a really good idea about how to prepare the yoghurt. Around 38 Minutes into Part 2 of the July 18 episode Stephen mentions yoghurt can be remade after the first batch (only took me a day to find this section).

The recommended dosage is: “Adults with gut issues, or chronic health issues such as cancer or chronic fatigue start at 5 ml per day [a teaspoon] increasing by 5ml per day up to 100ml per day. ” – from Stephens Bravo page.

Also on making more batches, “1 quart (1 L) of yoghurt, add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of Colostrum to a new batch (using some of the previous batch). This is fine for doing batches for a couple months (the yoghurt lasts 2 weeks).”


This video is sooo detailleedddd – still worth knowing.

Also this episode of The Primal Blueprint Podcast. Really reiterates the mentality I am beginning to foster about my health. It covers:

  • Skin health
  • Thyroid function – which I am yet to assimilate
  • Sleep – reiterating something I failed to do last night and hence paid the price
  • Coffee – detailing the narrative of addiction and how it doesn’t serve.
  • Liver cleanses – although the guest seems against them in favor of other protocols, specifically a supplement based on broccoli. Here to be frank I am getting a bit over constantly recommended supplements – often it seems they are just to generate profit for whoevers pushing them.
  • Time frame for gut health and immune health to balance to a Primal lifestyle – maybe six months to a year – of low sugar, very little grain eating for the point of removing candida/parasites/bacteria etc. Then there’s the whole low carb thing aswell.
  • Not going in guns blazing to remove things like Candida etc
  • Switching up probiotics, something I was about to do basically by chance anyway..
  • Also there’s all this excitement about anti-oxidants. This confuses me reading about ozone in the Plazamafire ebook, where studies are referenced that show free radical theory is apparently void?!

Thats a large part of it I guess..

Speaking my language – Medicine has become a religion (sigh)

For me talking about medicine is often a frustrating situation. The most taboo idea to bring up (not that I ever do) is perhaps Vaccines, where the word vaccine itself is welded to a cartoonish mockery of silly people.. “lol those nutjobs who refuse to vaccinate”.. To me it’s really interesting how religious people are in their beliefs about medicine, I hadn’t really used the religion analogy before listening to Dr. Gary Foresman in this podcast (embedded below). Note on vaccine research…

It has been disheartening for me to hear people who truly believe themselves to be intelligent and on the ball adamantly lock themselves into this generic disempowering mindset that Doctors know best. Hearing this podcast is very reassuring in this respect, which is aligned with an understanding I am coming to, that I should be the mechanic of my own health and nutrition… (how much do doctors learn about nutrition??).

In thinking about this ago old conundrum of ideology Vs science, the thought that western medicine treats symptoms comes up. I guess if medicine treated causation the profit motive would dry up; and now we’re in the rabbit hole…
