Health / Bloody ejaculation
« on: December 08, 2013, 11:52:03 pm »
Had a really bad one last night without realizing it because it was dark in my room. I'm about to go into the hospital in a little while cause I don't wanna fuck around, but I feel no pain and had felt none. The blood seemed very significant though. I'm thinking its because of the incredibly tight jeans I was wearing for a few days (slept in them one night, then for a long time the next. I always normally sleep naked). Also ran in them, and sat in them for a long time and noticed how uncomfortable I was often. Hoping it was just a ripped vein. I drank a lot the first night, and did not sleep well at only a few crappy hours (last night I slept decently well though, and for many many hours. Felt really messed up at about 7 p.m. and bombed). Will abstain for at least a week. The fact that my life is in a very, very bad place right now is not helping, I'm sure. I've been having thoughts of me just keeling over and dying, and I am aware of the brains ability to make the things you think about strongly and often a reality. Been starting the process of counteracting my minds self-negativity.

The incident could be a number of problems that the doctor doesn't even have any idea about. Any known incidents of jeans being a co-factor in this type of thing? I hear that it is indeed really bad for you. In the past I've had a comparatively very small amount appear at one time but it was never an issue after that. These are the first tight jeans I've worn in a very long time (mostly been sporting shorts, but god damn its cold now).

One thing of note may have been the fact that a very clotted piece of blood came out with my urination in the morning (along with blood). Dunno yet if my urine is strange. Currently consuming water.

Health / URGENT! Possible pneumonia?
« on: November 21, 2013, 04:13:08 am »
My ferret, only 2 and a half years old, has come down with a serious condition this last week. Just coming back from the vet now, he explained to me after x rays that the lungs should be a dark colour, instead only 10 percent of them are and the rest is white.

He said it could be a number of things. Something wrong with the heart, a tumor in or around the lungs, or pneumonia. Right now they're taking fluid out of the cavity and sending it for testing.

Problem is, he did not give her a good outcome for short or long term. He made it sound like she's going to die tomorrow, and its true her breathing is very laboured.

I'm not sure what to do except to have her on the grass outside as much as I can, and to give her any medications they prescribe. I'm sort of having a massive breakdown here. I thought I'd have many more years with her.

Any help? I think the main issue right now is fluid backup! Mainly caused by inflammation due to something I would assume.

Exercise / Bodybuilding / Progress so far
« on: September 16, 2013, 04:21:05 am »
I'm currently about month 7 into training. I feel my goals will be met in another year from now more or less, but I'm enjoying the progress I've already made.

First pic is from March, and the last two are from mid September.

I've done a lot of research and am trying to do things as smart as possible (as a result, I'm constantly losing fat while gaining muscle too!) I weigh 140 right now, at 5',3". I don't want to weigh much more than this, but I have a lot more fat to shed as well still. I work out once a week weight lifting and usually once for an uphill sprint session.

I think my chest may need the most work at the moment. I definitely still have far to go.

Health / Looking for answers in the power of breathing
« on: July 19, 2013, 10:08:28 am »
About a decade ago now I developed Hyperhidrosis. It is a pretty severe sweating disorder which makes me live in a sweaty hell every second of my life (not always sweaty, but at a moments notice my hands can always just soak up in 5-10 seconds and be dripping). This is chronic. It happens to me every single day, sometimes 10 times an hour when I'm in a stressful situation, and mostly work and being around people brings it on. It happens uncontrollably in many, many situations. Often when I'm completely alone I'll break out into sweats that are mostly affecting my hands. A lot of times I'll be always slightly wet, and at a seconds notice all of a sudden I'm soaking wet.

This is a disorder of the mind, caused by a lack of life in the body. I've come to realize that my breathing is extremely shallow. When its not shallow, I'm holding it without realizing it. I have a lack of magnetic power. Water pours out of me like crazy, sometimes constantly for long stretches of time without end.

I thought awhile back it was magnesium that was the answer. It did seem to make a difference, although I was still having really bad breakouts. At this time I was doing some good solid breathing training. I think it got into my head and made it slightly less bad (I have bad days and good days) and I tried to latch on to it as a fix.

But its as bad as ever. I've been doing research on the power of breath, and every where I look it seems to be the answer. I'm an incredibly terrible breather, even as I try my "very best" to work at it and believe in it, suffering in this hell of a sweaty life all the while. Everyday I set out to make progress, and end up with little patchworks of sessions that last a few minutes and probably don't even add up to more than 30 minutes in my day. On days I have really gone hard with it, I've noticed a big reduction in anxious sweatyness and an increase in calm and relaxation. But breathing is life itself. Nothing can be more pure than life itself and the rhythm it imparts.

The task of learning to master my breath is daunting, and my brain keeps trying to throw me to the ground. I remember constantly through the day, but its hard for me to sustain it for lengths of time because it slips out of my mind. My mind is rebelling against being controlled. But control is the thing I need most.

This, however, is definitely the answer to curing my disease. I can't see any other alternative, especially considering my breathing and the pattern of my breath is extremely poor quality. If I want to feel normal, I have to purify my mind and body. True purification can only be done through what breathing properly imparts.

I believe that my sympathetic  nervous system is over-reactive (constantly triggered by the flicker of thoughts in my head), and my parasympathetic is under-reactive.

Can you guys give me any best references you have to the healing power of breathing? Overcoming diseases through breath? Any informative work that sheds light on the issue of improving yourself with breathing?

I gain inspiration, and then find it hard to do and suffer in my sweaty hell, and then lose the inspiration, feeling like everything is lost and life will always be hell. At sometimes it feels like I can actually overcome this thing, and then it beats me down into a pulp like it has for the last decade and thats how I almost always feel.

But everyday I'm realizing more and more that I need to throw myself into this as hard as I can. If not to get rid of this horrible disease, but to improve my health to the most it can be. I've been making next to no progress, despite thinking about it constantly (I find it very tiring to do). But I need to shape up and destroy this thing, or at least severely reduce it so the torture can end.

Health / Magnesium is curing me
« on: May 16, 2013, 09:16:38 am »
Hello all. Since about the age of 13/14 (a decade ago or so) I developed a severe case of hyperhydrosis, a sweating "disease". About this time I began to develop strong anxiety feelings, occasional feelings of depression, and other things like kidney stones (to date I've had at least 15).

I've been suffering horribly in a lot of ways for a long time, every day of my life. In the last year it had gotten to be just too much and I couldn't take it anymore. It was debilitating to have my hands and my arm pits soaked for hours on end at work. Especially when I need to handle objects and people are witnessing me. Nothing I ever did in the last decade helped at all.

Then I came across a possible solution by deducing the symptoms I had with a magnesium deficiency, and discovered how hard it is to get even nearly adequate amounts in the diet today. To make matters worse, sweating creates a bigger magnesium deficiency. And I was sweating a lot.

I began taking 1000mg-1500mg a day (currently at about 1500). I've heard "recommendations" of something in the order of 800-1000mg. I prefer to judge by my stool, and so far its been great at this level. I attempted to take less than 1000mg for a stretch of time and my sweating and anxiety rebounded worse than ever and I was in hell again.

Now I sip it in my water, at concentrations of about 500-600mg per 400ml of water. I notice that in the morning my first drink can hold it off for a few hours, but then as I go without for another 3 hours or so, the sweating and anxiety starts to return. Then, if I sip on the magnesium water again the symptoms begin to disappear.

Sort of kicking myself for not realizing this sooner (no doctor I had ever seen ever connected these dots). In the end it actually seems pretty obvious, while I let it ruin my life year after year.

I expect my deficiency to be under control soon, but think I'll always have to supplement with at least some magnesium.

Does anyone else have any terrible things (or not so terrible) that magnesium has fixed?

Hot Topics / Vegetable sprouts
« on: January 02, 2013, 07:55:08 am »
In the last couple weeks I've really gotten into sprouts. Knowing the dangers of beans and grain, I decided to steer clear of them, even as sprouts. That means eating only a few varieties, but I'm fine with that. I grow kale, broccoli, broccoli rabb, and cabbage. I like to only grow the fast ones (5 days) not the slow ones (10 days+), so it limits me a bit further.

I started off with many ordinary cups, and hauled in a decent bit, but with bad drainage and a lot of spent time. Then I moved on to a proper sprouting jar, and got lots more this way. For Christmas I got a 3 tiered sprouter. At this point in time I have the 3 tiered sprouter, and four regular jar sprouters. This allows me to grow about 400-500 grams of sprouts per day if staggered and timed right. I just got the setup up and running again properly, so I started my really big harvests only a couple of days ago, but will now have a large steady supply from here on out. My set up cost me a mere 60-70 dollars, and I won't have to replace them for a very long time, likely. This amount of sprout per day only costs me about 40 bucks per month, or a bit over a dollar per day, and it'd be considered a very large salad.

I eat lots of vegetables, but the thing is, vegetables aren't that great. I can say that I almost never enjoy large amounts of raw vegetables, and most types out there just don't taste that great and are very fibrous or hard. My instincts feel as if they're telling me that they're not something I should really be eating, considering the living, growing food alternatives out there. Sprouts on the other hand are very enjoyable and feel so much more proper to be eating.

I've come to accept that sprouts are the absolute ultimate in vegetable nutrition (at least compared to the dead plants people eat). I don't think that anything short of picking something while its alive and growing from the forest or from a garden and eating that food stuff while its molecular processes are set forth in growing can compare. Simply because the whole "living" factor pushes them up to such higher, healthier heights that matured, dead, and stored vegetables just can't match.

For the cost of about 40 bucks per month, and over 400 grams of sprouts with only 5 minutes of work per day, and its superior nutrition to any other plant food we have available (and in such numbers for so cheap) I don't see why I shouldn't pretty much exclusively eat sprouts as the vegetable component of my diet (including other soaked nuts and seeds like sunflower). That along with a meal each of land animal and fish, and a filling meal of one type of fruit per day seems simple, nourishing, and ideal. I have aspirations of not only health, but attaining a powerful, fit and functional physique. It's starting to feel like I'm well on my way.

Does anyone else here eat large amounts of sprouts per day? I'd like to know your experiences with them. My intake has really only just begun to be so high, and I'm eager to see the results of long term dietary use. From what I understand, sprouts are a complete protein, with up to 20-30 percent of the matter being as such. In a 400 gram sprout salad per day, 80 grams of that or more could be super bio-available protein. It could potentially cover the majority of all protein requirements, along with some help from meat. We're also able to turn some of this into (I'd assume very high-quality) essential fats as well. Not to mention its easily near the very top of the list when it comes to antioxidant qualities.

I tend to give into my impulses, and sometimes after mulling over what to do about something, I get a flash of inspiration! I tend to eat later than I should, and have more meals than I should. I also tend to eat lots of nuts and seeds. Like...Pounds per week. I love them, and they bring joy to me! But I know that they're only good in small amounts, or in a big amount infrequently. I also tend to pig out way too much on the weekend (although many of those cheat meals tend to be nuts and dark chocolate, in various forms). Other cheat meals tend to be a lot more junky.

It is thus that it dawned on me, I'm due for a period of healing. I didn't want to do any fasting (did some of that in the last few months) and I didn't want to suffer too much, so I thought of a novel idea. It should also provide me with adequete amounts of whatever I need in abundance.

For 2 weeks, I'm going to eat 3 meals a day (as opposed to my usual 5 or 6). Absolutely no snacking in between. One will be of vegetable (1 or 2 types, but separated by an hour perhaps if multiple types are involved). One will be of fruit, and the last meal will be of meat. After a stint of raw meat experimentation I stopped eating it for the most part raw, but I do cook it on very low heat and prefer it still pink (I don't buy into the whole "cooking meat slightly is worse than cooking meat well done" theory). No condiments are to be used. For 2 weeks it'll be the pure subtances of veg, fruit and meat and thats it (along with Himilayan crystal salt, coconut oil and my usual heavy vitamin D supplementation (10k-20k IU per day)).

This allows me to indulge in the joys of eating both fruit and meat everyday (I find very little enjoyment in any raw vegetable, but still eat plenty) while still keeping a rigid, absolutely strict mono-eating schedule. I really don't believe anything could be healthier than this, at least in the short term.

Has anyone else tried a similar approach? Experiences? Advice? Thoughts or opinions?

Instincto / Anopsology / Anopsology feels much more proper
« on: August 30, 2012, 11:32:40 pm »
So I got into paleo a few months ago and have been making strides as I go. I started with cooked paleo, then moved on to raw paleo (all organic), although not yet fully committed. Everything except my meat is always raw. My meat I tend to cook on very low heat, and so that its still decently pink and raw in the middle. Generally I do eat raw eggs, and sometimes fully raw meat, but for now I'm settling on a half approach.

I then felt that Anopsology was the next level, because everything about it just made so much sense to me. So I began a new structure of diet, mainly focusing on single foods. It varies day be day, but generally I'll eat a pound of a type of fruit for a meal, two meals of meat 1/3 lb to 1/2 lb each, with no sauce, just bare. I'll also eat about 2 lbs of either 1 type of veg or 2, and I always vary what I eat day by day depending on what I feel like, so the amounts, type and structure changes. It was sooo satisfying to eat a pound and a half of grapes yesterday, and a pound of blueberry's the day before, and a pound of peaches before that. Twice a week I'll eat a meal of raw nuts. Almost every meal I have now is a single food at a time, always separated by 1 or 2 hours or more (generally 2-4). Twice a week or so on the weekends I'll have cheat meals.

When I do this I imagine this being so much easier on my body in every way. I've only been doing it for two weeks this way now, but I've been feeling better and I'm becoming very lean and strong. At no other point in my life have I looked so good (and got my six pack!). It feels like Anopsology was the last step I was missing, and when I took it, I finally started to feel like I'm building a proper body. I know I've got so many years left still to really get out of my life long garbage food eating and binging though.

So the question I have for all of you is do you just disregard how much eating this way makes sense in favour of finding comfort in the constant mixing of food?
It seems to me that the level of commitment towards raw Anopsology paleo is extremely low, when in reality it seems like the far better diet in terms of satisfaction and intelligent structure. With the world we live in today and the way we treat our bodies, I feel that the most maximum level of simplicity for your stomach, while still providing maximum nutrition, is the most sound route to take for life long health.
