Hypo-thyroid

After going down the hypothyroid path a while back, I woke up yesterday feeling very run down. Pretty obvious, the room being too cold disallowed me from sleeping properly. Despite the body being supposed to ‘cool down’ while sleeping, in my case, where the body is in a detriment of metabolic resources, keeping warm is more important. I slept in thermals and socks last night, much more energy today. Waking temperature (measured under armpit for ~15 minutes with a digital thermometer) was 36 this morning. I guess this is an improvement. The idea of using NDT (naturally desiccated thyroid) is somewhat appealing, although not really keen to go down that path again at this point, sans appendix.

No Gi training. sweeps from on top of turtle.

Seatbelt grip, step foot to their rear and fall to the side, allows for rear naked setup. Can continue this roll all the way over to an arm bar setup. Third variation is (possibly..?) from seat belt, roll over outside shoulder, and take back.
May be confusing this with:
From side control, sit facing away from their head.. I forget, somehow catch one of their legs with your outside leg, roll them, switch feet and take the back…
It was 3 days ago…

Take the back and get hooks while they’re in turtle. Take your left foot out and back between their legs for support. reach around with your left hand and grab their left ankle. Fall back. You can grab their right foot for a calf crusher (or something).

Or… both arms on their left arm, throw it behind your head. You can then torque their body for a sub, grasping around their head, near the top and pulling it towards you.

If they defend throwing their arm behind your head, there is a different transition… grab their left shoulder deep with your left arm and pull the right arm through to a RNC.

rock n roll

Sweep to Omoplata from De La.

Take a de la riva guard. Inside leg against their thigh, sit on their foot if possible, outside foot wraps around their leg. Outside hand holds their foot, other hand grabs their closer wrist. Push them away with your leg, and drag their wrist accross and infront of their body. If they try to move your foot off their thigh, circle and replace it. Drag their wrist infront of their body to your side. From here can sweep to Omma, with their thigh pushed far away. Can readjust the Omoplata to flatten their chest against the floor.

Head in single leg takedown above the knee – bad idea. If they are kneeling in this position, turn to face the same way as them, pinch legs together, and kick the leg closest to their head to break their grip. From this point can transition to crusifix etc.

For the head outside single leg from kneeling, grab their foot and bend it up into their butt, twisting it adds effectiveness here. This prevents their takedown.

Halfguard pass.  From half guard top chest to chest, elbow next to their head, free leg sprawled out with no knee touching, out wide way up as high as their head. If they are on their side, walk the trapped leg up into their butt. This will allow the trapped leg to pass to mount. If they block the pass with their hand on your knee, then can underhook their arm, and slide the trapped leg really low into side control. During the transition to side control, maintain the underhook and with your free arm overhook their free arm for a really tight side control, can put all weight on them with only feet touching the ground, lifting the underhook arm off the ground. Can then step over their head for an armbar.

Nutritional Deficiencies – Dead Doctors Don’t Lie

Reading Dead Doctors Don’t Lie, something I’ve been meaning to checkout since watching one of Dr Wallaches lectures on the internet. He reiterates how diseases are very often caused by nutritional deficiencies – that seems to be the point of his book so far. Something I’ve basically come to find, tying into the health doctrine I have for myself which is basically: eat real food. I supplement with many things, essential minerals and adaptogens. I get my carbs from Bananas mainly, although I’ll be adding potatoes back into the mix soon. The bulk of my energy comes from animal protein.. supplemented with salads, fruits and nuts. My diet is basically

6 eggs for breakfast in an omelette with sauted spinach/mushrooms. I’ve been leaving out garlic and onions lately due to the liver loading chelating effect they have – which I attribute some feelings of anger to (the rabbit hole is always there…) Two tangents: The Zapper and heavy metals. The zapper will be my next post, heavy metals ties back to the Wilking Protocol I’m sorta following at the moment.. leaving some potato on a nonstick pan with coconut oil on low heat makes a pretty awesome omelette as well.

I’ll have my supplements after that: Magnesium taurate 400mg, zinc and selenium. I’ve been adding chromium in lately aswell. I’ll have some Lysine if I have coldsore symptoms. Usually I’ll add in some ginseng caps as well.

Before breakfast a glass of spring water with a juiced lemon goes well to activate the vegas nerve (preparation for digestion). I’ll often add rhodiola/ashwaganda tincture into that too. (The Vegas nerve thing I got from an ATP podcast episode, probably a gutright episode)

I will likely soon look into getting some mineral/vitamin levels tested, here is ‘a’ list of some recommendations..
