Age 69, London, Business Consultant.
I have suffered from a disk problem for years. Disks between L4 and L5 have bulged and impinge on the emerging nerves. Result was I could not sleep on my side due to nerve pain and suffered periodic crippling back pain….I am now 90% pain free and can sleep on my side without being woken up by nerve pain.
Start conditions: I stopped taking most of my supplements. I started taking saunas and steam room sessions three times a week to help expel toxins. I have been 70%-80% sticking to the fat and protein, low carb and no sugar diet. I have been using the yoghurt method and taking it early in the morning and then leaving at least 30 minutes before taking any tea or the supplements I do take, I have been taking MSM, activated folate and vitamin B6, that’s about all
Cravings down: I had previously suffered real problems giving up sugar, bread etc. At night I would have a severe nagging to drink sweet drinks, beer, wine or cider. No desire for vodka or whisky so it was the sugar. These cravings have been with me all my adult life but have been easy to resist in the last month.
Back pain down: I have suffered from a disk problem for years. Disks between L4 and L5 have bulged and impinge on the emerging nerves. Result was I could not sleep on my side due to nerve pain and suffered periodic crippling back pain. Chiropractic sessions were making slow progress but progress has greatly accelerated over the last month. I am now 90% pain free and can sleep on my side without being woken up by nerve pain.
Nocturia down: For years have had to get up to pee 3-6 times per night. Now it is one or none. That is a real blessing.
Brain power up: My processing speed in back to where it was at 19 and 29. Combined with the wisdom gained over 69 years it makes a potent combination.
Mental and physical endurance up: I now wake up around 6 am and can work through without needing a nap in the afternoon. I get tired but no desperate feeling of exhaustion.
Focus up: I can focus on the work I am doing with hardly any mental interference. My productivity in business planning and the quality of the work has gone up and the gut wrenching effort has gone. Now it is more in flow,
Mental Balance and resilience up: I don’t get panicky when really bad things happen as the have.
Bravery up: I now feel ready to start a project that I have delayed and shied away from for years
Mental breakthrough to higher levels: I can now get ‘out of the box’ completely, not just into a bigger box. I will tell you what the place I can enter at will is like when we meet, I will go beyond that place soon but not yet.
Symptoms of being a young man: On Saturday, I really tore into the CEO of a company that I have worked with since 2009. I was really angry at his limp approach, delays and excuses and I surprised myself.
Yesterday I got very forceful when shop doors were shut as I arrived having driven five miles to get there. It was not a fragile, brittle or out of control anger, it was a testosterone ‘I will do this’ fueled feeling. When I drove off I was looking at pretty girls in the sun as I used to and felt the whole range of feelings that I remember feeling as a young man. Seems like my testosterone is on the way back up so will have to watch my reactions to difficult situations.
