Ben Greenfield podcast: The Wildatarian Diet

Just stumbled onto this podcast, possibly one of the most important podcasts I’ve ever found for myself, covering

  • Sulfur metabolism ( I believe the liver is largely involved, which in Chinese medicine is related to anger…)
  • specifically why conventional animal farming methods are harmful to our health, as well as covering Glyphosate

Sulfur metabolism is something I don’t remember reading about in the Primal Blueprint, sure as hell have never heard it mentioned by an allopathic doc (in fact when I brought up histamine, an allopathic doc asked if I’d been speaking with a naturopath… classic). An integrative doc did test histamine and proceeded to diagnose undermethylation… but didn’t mention sulfur in the diet and the magnitude of it’s detriment…
I’m diving deeper into this podcast with these notes I’ve created – which I have further refined into specific concepts here.

Parasites… again

The parasite thing is interesting, because it’s so easy for me to be like ‘oh it’s all in my head’ and stop a protocol that may be working. After my recent success with ‘the zapper’ I even had a dream where – gross warning – I had a scab come off my knee and all this air came out, followed by these tiny black dots.. Then I saw a thin worm in my toe.. still in my body.. So that’s interesting! I had a couple days of feeling really good, although yesterday symptoms of hypoglycemia came back to an extent.

It’s interesting that I can rationalise this as being ‘in my head’ vs a physiological thing. This whole thing does tie into the power of belief and how powerful that is. For example if I eat gluten, I can be totally fine, although there have been times at work where I’ve eaten something with gluten and it has messed me up badly, after I’ve had fear about the possibility that I will have a reaction.. weird..!

I often eat a large amount of food, I guess a symptom of having a parasite/candida over growth etc is the feeling of never being full, and always needing to eat. The feeling of crashing an hour after eating is another annoying symptom.. With all this I stay quite lean.. although I do avoid refined carbs basically entirely.

This ties into a podcast I just started listening to: The ATP Project
Episode 172 – An Interview with Ken Ware – Neurophysics Therapy

Ampcoil PEMF -> Hulda Clarke

Listened to an episode of the life stylist podcast talking about about the Ampcoil (basically a high powered PEMF device), and was really impressed. Then, after more reading I feel it’s kinda disingenuous to talk all this ‘our goal is to get the product out to people’ crap, but then charge $10k for the unit. The product is very much marketing driven, not to say it is bunk at all, just stupid expensive. I would have been able to deal with 1 or 2k.. but they are really tuning into the medical paradigm pricing model.. As much as I like the tech, I think I could find something comparable for a reasonable price.

They mentioned Hulda Clarke in that episode, which motivated me to get out my zapper, a device of hers I’d lost faith in quite a while ago. Interesting considering my previous post on the device 2 years ago…

A day or two after using the device for 10 minutes I feel like I passed a parasite.. hmmm.. may be a coincidence/related to gutright.. regardless, I feel pretty clear headed and good at the moment… We’ll see how we go with that.. I think I’ll use it in my meditations daily. Also..! Todays meditation with the device brought up feelings of a parasite below the surface, being brought into awareness.. very interesting to feel that, a kinda sickly feeling I’m going to keep engaging with.. Similar to drinking Oje in the jungle as a parasite purgative…

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..

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.
