  1. cmon dude...
  2. 3-5 beers twice a month is fine . It would be better if it was 1 or 2 as no alcohol is better than some but you are still good. If you want some more info on chronic alcohol abuse, National Institute of Medicine (PubMed) has a lot of studies, that you can look up. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3307043/. This link talks about the risk of all major diseases increasing with drinking. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC543875/ this talks about what happens with alcohol in the body and what are the involved systems.
  3. Unless one can completely isolate themselves from society it is no longer possible to avoid the impact of endocrine disruptors. They are now absolutely everywhere. So it is a good idea to avoid the most significant and obvious ones like unpurified water, cheap personal hygiene products, alcohol , tobacco, excesive caffeine and any unnecessary medicines including OCP and painkillers but it is equally important to support our bodies to ensure proper liver Phase 1 and Phase 2 detoxification as this is where all the toxins are being dismantled and metabolised (see picture). On top of that, high fiber intake ensure that once toxins are metabolised they are fast excreted before being reabsorbed. Phytoestrogenic foods can help to safeguard oestrogen receptors from docking of oestrogen disruptors. You mentioned soy but actually soy products from organic soy are very protective from oestrogen imbalances. And of course, good water intake to support all metabolic processes.
  4. if you can spend the money, the Life Purpose Course could give you a direction on where to go next. Without a strong drive in life, you will be like a ship without a captain. Most people on the planet exist in that way jumping from one slave job to another if it offers a slight hint of improvement yet they always end up in the same shithole. Find out what is your calling. Find out why you are here and what is your mission on this planet. How can you help with the suffering of humans, animals and the planet that is being fucked by unconsciousness? This earth needs more awakened people so try to become one, find your direction in life and than give it all you got until you get there. As I said, Leo's Life Purpose Course is a brilliant tool to show you the way. More like a compass than a map. It will show you the direction but you will have to find your way. At least that's what it did for me. And many many other people. Good luck! Regarding your love, long-distance relationship can be a thing for the short term but it will not work for long. You have to consider the pros and cons.Unless you or she are willing to change countries, it will probably not last. But that's just my opinion and I know many who succeeded would contradict. Good luck buddy! You can make a difference just don't settle for anything less than your best.
  5. Why not. If I am dead yet there is still someone who can survive because they recieve something from my body, feel free to harvest as much as you like. I equally wouldn't mind becoming a specimen for science after death or medical students to learn. Wouldn't donate an organ while I am alive though unless it was a child or partner needing a kidney perhaps.
  6. Get a private testing mate. It is not as expensive and can be very comprehensive.
  7. one does not go blind from needing to adjust glasses. Glasses only adjust the imbalance that is created by inefficient adjustment of the 6 tiny muscles at the back of the eye against the main focus point on the retina. One goes blind from developing cataracts, from having diabetes, from suffering of retinol deficiency, or glaucoma. Autoimmune disease such as multiple sclerosis can also create lesions on auditory nerve. And there are ways to address all of these conditions. If its because of you are needing stronger and stronger glasses than what @pluto said, bates eye method is a very successful method of eyesight correction.
  8. Forget viagra mate. Believe in the self-healing ability of your body and let it do its "magic". Viagra is a toxic shit that creates dependance and doesn't work in many cases anyway because it does not address the psychological element.
  9. @Mikael89 what exactly is the issue with your eyesight? Are you getting cataracts or is it related to the auditory nerve?
  10. I don't believe that. If that was the case, you wouldn't be the first and if a medication was proven to sterilise people, It would have been taken of the market long time ago. Antidepressants have been on market for decades and most doctors check polypharmacy (combining drugs) for interactions and safety before they prescribe. By the way, we talked about your diet a while ago where you suggested doing some drastic reductions. This will NOT help your sex drive, if anything restricted diet will kill your libido. So this needs to be tweaked as well. Make sure to eat enough fat and actually in your case I'd go for few sources of cholesterol like eggs or fish couple times a week to boost your testosterone production
  11. Sexual dysfunction is an extremely common side effect of antidepressants both SSRI and TCA. It is probably temporary because antidepressants throw your neurotransmitters out of balance by blocking their reuptake which can lead to depletion across the board. If your dopamine and serotonin are low you will struggle to have sexual pleasure. Some of them also deplete noradrenaline and adrenaline leaving the person hollow. This stuff is pure devilry in the long term. Work with your doctor and wean yourself off. At the same time work with herbalist to help you in more natural ways with herbs such as St John's Wort and different adaptogens if you need to balance your stress. In the largest meta-analyses St. John's Wort was no worse than most SSRis so that can be a healthy alternative without destructive side effects. Out of curiosity, what did you take Risperdal for? Has it helped with the issue? I am asking because unmanaged psychosis could be worse than having low libido.
  12. Is she open to higher values? Would you be able to bring her up to more hippie level? Blue people have a very strong connection to their parents and culture and it is possible that her father would play a huge role in your lives especially once you settle down. Is she religious? Are her parents religious? Btw there is nothing wrong with having house and the kids. One can still do those and remain yellow as long as you bring them up in non-dogmatic fashion and don't lose the bigger picture overview.
  13. Fascinating, thanks for sharing! Heard about the benefits of keto for epilepsy but didn't know it can be helpful for schizophrenia. Are you the 39-year-old patient? They said that it works through bypassing the insulin resistance of brain cells by feeding them ketones? Does that mean that schisophrenia is not caused by excessive neuron firing but rather brain cells being starved? Is this a permanent diet to follow for you or will you be able to get some carbs back in the future>?
  14. https://www.coeliac.org.uk/home/ Coeliac UK has some good information. I know you said this is not your case but they have lots of tips and recipes as well as educational materials.
  15. I'd try to start with this before blaming it on chakra imbalance sometimes the answer is very simple.
  16. that's gotta be that black pill "genetic" component
  17. I have recently become aware of how much everyone around me is suffering on daily basis. This is especially prevalent in food services , coffee places, book stores, transport services etc. When I look at the people working in these places I see pain, disgust, fear and often anxiety and depression. Sometimes I associate myself with their situation so much that I have to leave the place because it leaves me slightly depressed seeing them go through this I wasn't too concerned about this so much before perhaps its a lot of hidden devilry finally coming up after realising I am participating in all of this by purchasing from these places or just becoming slightly more mindful. Wondering if other people often feel the same?
  18. You guys need to stop with all this pill crap. Bunch of cry babies got together and created a conspiracy against women because they could not get laid. Thousands of men are now using this to not work on themselves and to accepts shitty relationships with women they are not attracted to. Get your heads out of sands and start approaching girls as equal human beings not as numbers (she is this and that number so out of my league,,,) not as goddesses and not as sexual objects.
  19. Some of the silicon ones are pretty neat. You have to heat them up a little and they fill your ear canal without causing a lot of discomfort. I find plastic ones hard when you sleep on your side. There are also the foamy ones that are single-use but they are very un-ecological in my opinion and these products shouldn't be sold. Best to always read reviews before you buy.
  20. Macros do not get altered by food cooking. There are some alterations in molecular integrity such as high heat for a long time denaturates protein and breaks down resistant starchy carbohydrates like amylose but overally the value will not change. So ideally you want to measure raw weight whenever possible unless the nutrition table on the label says otherwise. Micronutrients may get altered to some degree. Vitamin C and B1 get depleted rapidly during frying and roasting, somewhatless by boiling. Most minerals don't with exception of magnesium I think. All the metallic ones like iron and zinc will be fully preserved. This is because cooked lentils (and other legumes) become soaked with water which adds to their weight. So 100 grams of raw lentils and 100 grams of cooked lentils do not have the same ratio of macronutrients anymore because you have to account for the added water weight. Notice how bulky they become after cooked? That's why The easiest method is to use an online tool like cronometer.com. You can measure food by cups (check the standard cup unit), or by grams for which you need a culinary weight scale. Cronometer allows you to use both. Smaller foods like seeds are best measure by spoon sizes (tablespoon, teaspoon etc..) these can be purchased online to get the adequate measure. One final note I am going to make is that macro counting unless you are diabetic or undergoing some sort of body transformation program is usually pointless , becomes obsessive and makes people neurotic. It is good to self-calibrate but don't allow it to become an obsession. Rather see how you feel. If you are gaining weight and feel sluggish, reduce food intake. If you are tired and libido is low, add more food.
  21. Your needy behaviour will literally repel every single girl in your life. I sense a certain pattern here that starts with seeing cute girls and then pressuring her into some sort of commitment. Girls absolutely hate this. The more you push on this the lower your chance of getting in a good relationship. From this and other posts I think you are a type of person who goes all or nothing. You go into extremes and lose your balancing same as with the diet as we spoke yesterday. Let go a little bit, slow down and savour the moment. Keep working on yourself and when the time is right, you will know you are ready and what has to happen will happen. Stop bitching and whining and blaming girls. The fault is yours and you have to suck it up like a man but at the same time this does not entitle you to try to pressure every cute girl you see into relationship. Women are like flowers, they bloom when they are unpicked and when they are picked and unkempt they decay and fall into misery. This is a complete and utter redpill bullcrap.
  22. Probably in general but I don't notice people on the streets as much as those in services. Interesting exercise, I might try doing this. Participating probably leads to more people being drawn to these jobs in search of income and survival but that leaves them with no time to self-reflect and do any personal development work. At the same time my purchases allow them to have decent life perhaps? Its the catch 22 and I don't have an answer to that. Thank you for your input thou, it delivers a good perspective! Very enlightening as always thank you! Intellectually I know letting go is the answer but I struggle with that big time and easily get attached to things allowing them to deplete my energy. I will work on being more mindful whenever I am doing this, that's probably a good first step. Cheers !!
  23. I recall you raising some post about struggling with direction in life some time ago, happy things are starting to move the right direction. Love this. Well done and keep it up mate !!
  24. I think you need to start by working with your own weight to get more comfortable in your skin and for your body to get accustomed to moving itself around in ways it hasn't before. In gyms you see guys who can bench 180 kilos yet they can hardly do 5 pullups. To me that's a weak man who has just covered himself in some fake and useless muscle. You may consider doing some calisthenics, sprinting, ladder drills, handstands. obstacle runs, trx, gymnastic rings and all sorts of plyometric exercises that involve a lot of jumping..etc. You may also try something called primal movement, which is a mind-body coordination practice. These will help you achieve a functional strength, you joints and muscles will learn to work like an orchestra rather than bunch of isolated parts which is what bodybuilding does to you. At the same time you gain some muscle that will be 100% efficient and usable. Once you feel comfortable enough, add some kettlebells and some weights if you fancy. Regarding food, you don't have to eat like madman but you have to be in slight caloric surplus to gain weight. Gaining weight means taking the food, breaking it down into smallest units of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids and then adding them to your body weight either as fatty tissue or lean muscle tissue, this will entirely depend on the lifestyle, amount of stress you are in, your environment, your activity level and the balance of individual macro nutrients. Your body will only start doing that once your other basic metabolic needs are covered. Think 1.6g of protein per kilo of body weight as protein will be your main driver of adding lean body mass (not fat). And than make sure your vitamin in mineral intake is optimal as they often serve as co-factors in various metabolic processes and energy production,.
  25. @AwakenedSoul444 I don't think bananas and blood sugars are the problem here buddy.
