  1. Thought that it would be useful, maybe even therapeutic, to record my journey of getting back to optimal health. Feel free to chime in and share your sentiments and/or advice
  2. Happy Birthday Leo
  3. Thank you! This would be perfect for my case as I've been really uncomfortable doing meditation and yoga since this occured.
  4. This makes a lot of sense. I had been on a grind for 2 years without any relaxation prior to this happening. I used to be able to meditate and do yoga every day, but ever since my health has been like this, I've had anxiety and depression 24/7. Can't enjoy anything, can't focus or concentrate on anything, takes 10000x more effort to do simple tasks, even on things I usually enjoy. Something must be off with my neurotransmitter production. If I sit still to meditate, it is extremely emotionally exhausting, it's like the anxiety comes at full force. I also feel physiologically uncomfortable, my gut wrenches up and my body becomes tense. I usually am a hardworking person but now I am the complete opposite, the constant fatigue and headache make it feel like my head is about to explode from how much pressure there is. It's hard to explain with words. I couldn't even imagine feeling this terrible before it happened, this can only be experienced. @The0Self Thanks! @Arthur I have watched that, thanks Yes, I've seen those supplements being recommended by many sources. When you were intermittent fasting, were you on a ketogenic diet or a normal diet? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've read that: If your body is running on glucose and you are on a low-carb diet, this will increase cortisol levels as your body tries to make up for the lack of energy (glucose). If your body is running on ketones and you are on a low-carb diet, this will not increase cortisol as your body has an abundance of ketones to use for energy. So it would initially feel bad until you are keto-adapted.
  5. @The0Self Can I see sources? Not that I don’t believe you, just want more information on it. It was measured through blood (injection). It was a serum cortisol test. I haven’t done a saliva cortisol test. It was once, in the morning. I was fasted.
  6. So I got my blood test results back. Turns out I have very high cortisol. This may be adding to the fatigue I’ve been feeling 24/7. How can I fix this issue?
  7. @BipolarGrowth This is also the case with ADHD. From my own observation, a lot of exceptionally gifted and passionate people have it. It may just be that all the lacking attention in uninteresting pursuits goes full force in things we are genuinely interested. Also known as ADHD's superpower - "hyperfocus"
  8. Yes, I do intermittent fasting. Mostly 16:8 but sometimes 18:6 Yeah, my family also has a history of diabetes which makes me even more concerned. My family has a history of type 1 diabetes including my dad, aunty and grandparents. Are you sure you're in ketosis? It usually takes 2-4 days to fully get into ketosis, eating fruit and carbs immediately kicks you out of it. Have you tried experimenting with less than 20g carbs for at least a week or two? If it works for you and you like it more then that's great. My current diet is meat organs, chicken, and a lot of vegetables. 10 cups of vegetables and per meal. Oats contain lots of lectins, most people with gut issues are sensitive to that from what I've read. What are your thoughts on lectins @WaveInTheOcean @Danioover9000
  9. And of course, economic benefit "A cured patient is a lost customer"
  10. @Bogdan Would going keto solve gut issues?
  11. @Leo Gura Do you think it’s best to just go with the diet I feel best on? For my case it would be keto, but with people saying it’s a disaster long term, I’m lost. Like do I go on a non-keto diet that I feel worse on relative to a keto diet, just to hopefully save my long term health?
  12. @Twega Thank you! I'll look into those. Nice! Are you vegan? About eczema - do you know if it can ever be cured? Or if the food intolerances can ever be reversed?
  13. @Twega Yes, that makes sense. But 60% of eczema sufferers have a salicylate sensitivity, I happen to be a part of that. I've pretty much been intolerant to it my entire life as I've had eczema since I was an infant. What does your diet consist of?
  14. @Twega I have tried going without meat for a period of time. It doesn't give me enough energy to function, especially when I am intolerant to the most nutritious plants and fruits as they are high in salicylates.
