So last Friday was as interesting experience in regard to this whole sugar sensitivity situation I’ve been dealing with for basically this whole year. I’ve been thinking about the interplay between psychological and physiological factors, I think it’s both, perhaps I have psychologically conditioned myself to identify with the toxic feelings associated with this sugar/gluten/caffeine sensitivity. Regardless of the interplay operations, the end result I’m taking away is to be aware of when anxiety presents itself, catching it and breathing deeply. Being aware of the feeling in my guy as well as chest my tightening, I can just take a deep breath. This boost of oxygen to my blood is profound.
So on Friday I missed a shift due to feeling really crappy, this was brought on… by eating too much sweet potato… would have been interesting to meditate on Friday and see if coercing deep breathing could have changed my awareness. None the less, Saturday I was feeling crappy due to missing my shift, being anxious about how to avoid a reaction for my Sunday shift, as well as ruining a 1L yogurt batch.
Sunday went fine, after tiny pedantically measured batches of food hourly to avoid an insulin spike.
I bought a yoghurt maker for $10 in great condition. It has one setting, heat up to 42 degrees C, which is great, just under the max mentioned in part 6 of the FAQ here. This is quite a bit simpler than the PID controller solution I was literally looking at building. I think using gumtree.com.au for a solution is just common sense aka good engineering.
I made a practice batch with this recipe, only using inoculated raw milk and a small amount of the organic yogurt I had in the fridge.. After 11 hours in the yogurt maker, I have great tasting yogurt, which tastes basically the same as the yogurt I put in. great!
So I’ve done 3 batches of Dr Daniels protocol, last Thursday, Saturday then Monday.
Either way I’ve been having more liberal normal sized meals and felt a sense of normality in my hunger levels, something somewhat foreign. So not feeling constantly hungry is good. Now perhaps I can use hunger to guide my primal meal choices. This is a good feeling, the option of adding in various supplements/ozone steam saunas/exercise and building up my immune system is something I look forward to. I have had flashes of this feeling going back however many months; it’s good to feel a more holistic depth of understanding here.
