I be assured of guys , it’s been 2 months ago I’ve blogged. My apologies. I’ve been a content, unmotivated woo I suppose, and combined through winter, well I just don’t consider that big scope ranting zeal at the consequence. That doesnt mean to say I havent had over ideas I wanted to write surrounding or investigate, only that my answer has been “meh”.
It feels to such a degree awkward to write TBH, particularly while i’m not motivated by any genuine desire to express my thoughts (and in the room, relying on a *conscious effort* to design of ideas and connect them in such a manner as to create a post…) . Perhaps this is by what means the normal world at large feels, in what plight they write. Its an EFFORT to secure ideas come and to connect them and sooner or later put them on paper. I’m used to the subvert flow of events: ideas come elementary, connect *themselves*, demand of me and bring into view reward in the process. I produce as a response to that, a stand in want of to write what i think and a touching of excitement. It feels very hollow to make an attempt to beseech writing. It feels like holding a lighter and clicking it and cipher happens but i’m trying anyway, lol.
Hey, is this by what means normal ppl write anything? I be favored with no idea TBH. Do most race *try* to think of idea and *try* to secure connections and then *try* to carry out a written result? This is in the same manner weird. So unrewarding as well.
Anyway i perform have a seed of an creative to share: recent observations from retrying ketone salts, to the degree that well as describing the results of oil of oregano (herbal abx) and then following up in painful Grace Liu’s 6 strain probiotic mix. In the past few weeks I acquire done some woospermintz and so possess a bit to report.
Oil of Oregano:
I tried this capital, in agreement with my collective observations to this degree far of what i know of my propinquity to the GI biome:
ALL probiotic interventions are keto subduing, and this tends to cluster through behavior/sleep/emo fails of more kind or other. Good vegetable life or bad flora, adding any flora has this effect.
ALL antibiotic interventions that were ample spectrum (i.e. selective ABX bestow not count) are both helpful in opposition to GI symptoms and keto augmenting. Peter @ hyperlipid shared through me his fascinating hypothesis that metformin acts viewed like an antibiotic of GI flora via the same metabolic properties it exerts in humans, and my real response to metformin is likely totally metabolic. I respectfully disagree because i be in actual possession of elicited the “rapidly darker ketones” general intent using industrial bleach. Additionally, I be able to totally eliminate or block metformin’s keto augmenting properties ~ dint of. using probiotics. Stool quality change from metformin correlates 100% by whether or not it can increase keto. If i take probiotoics WITH metformin, evacuation quality will not change, and ketones volition remain suppressed or get even worse. If i picked to use the XR version of metformin (known to close the GI abx effect ) ketones in like manner do not improve.
For what its excellence, in myself and likely other individuals, granting that one is attempting to induct a curative keto diet, it may *require* selective defeat of GI flora and trying to arrest that will disrupt capacity to keep up or enter ketosis.
Other than metformin, longitudinally the way i have found other herbal agents that are very useful toward suppressing GI flora and so ~ means of extension, useful for augmenting keto. While not a herbal, acetic acid from vinegar is to a great extent an effective GI abx and tends to second keto. Coconut oil is another, arguably viewed like powerful as flagyl for me, to strangle pathogenic strains (although CO doesnt swell keto very much, likely because it is insulinogenic relative to other fats, and exclusively saturated).
St johns wort is as a matter of fact a very good antibiotic as well. I had not appreciated till now that one reason i utility from it, is it obviously resolves my GI symptoms/expanding/pain and helps my keto a small piece. The problem with SJW is its ~y antidepressant somewhat so i cannot tolerate more than an extremely low drench, even in the winter. There is in ~ degree way to take enough SJW so that it stands as a GI synteretic intervention w/o also freaking to the end.
My quest was to find a cocktail of herbal ABX that are absent psychotropic properties. I knowing of 2 substances to try, oil of oregano and grapefruitseed quote.
I ruled out GSE relatively swiftly. When investigating i discovered GSE is human being of the rare total scams in pertaining medicine. Most herbs, speaking from experience, actually DO ELICIT the properties attributed to them. Unfortunately, the GSE manifestation was orchestrated by 1 company who processed grapefruit seeds with a topical antiseptic (and one that was not cleared with a view to internal use by the FDA). The GSE was operating very well for certain people, clearing up GI probs and UTIs and entirely manners of infectious mayhem. Unfortunately, this is for the reason that they were drinking an industrial antiseptic chemical what one. should only be used on apparent skin and membranes. Oopz.
Yea, no thanks. I can drink bleach myself as antidote to free already. Thanx.
So that foliage…oil of oregano.
I read the reviews, purchased mah herbs, nommed + observed. At the TIME i initiated this trial, things were a+…
I felt moderately beautiful much fine
Sleep was 7 hrz woo mental
Gut really wasnt hurting or essence a bastard at all, gut was laboring gr8
Basically everything was fine boundary i was like “lets see if this helps even more” rather in the same manner with metformin once helped a ton.
So, within a day right away i felt mode happier and more excited. I wasnt happier because now my burps tasted like lasagna or well seasoned pizza, ~-end i was *happy* because pretty doubtless the oil of oregano is likewise a friggin antidepressant just like SJW. Gawd ruin it.
Yes, also, my ketones got darker. As is congruous with all GI ABX, it overmuch elicited the effect: my ketones went from stolid, to purple. I had a destiny more energy and better mood, unless TBH i believe this was for the most part the psychotropic effects of the OOO , which seemed to be dwarfing the relatively minor increase of ketones.
See, being of the cl~s who a hypersensitive fail, I can TELL whereas ANYTHING raises 5ht and NE. You cant idiot me, i am like bloodhound in this place. I can tell if the tiniest disagreeable lot of kratom maybe had tramadol. NO SLIPPING IT PAST WOO.
When i began investigating OOO as being psychotropic properties, the earliest references i build stated “it only raises dopamine”. I knew that was grossly partial info. Pure dopamine agonists are disposition boosting but CALMING. This type of insomniac cracky perception by touch is 100% 5ht+NE event, judge on it.
SO then i set up truth, its basically a triple reuptake inhibitor. It appears oregano has entirely overflowing properties with st johns wort: compounds are basically some other molecule that plants evolved in EXACTLY the like fashion as st johns wort’s hyperforin.
I was punish by a ~ with it. I felt good, it wasnt ~y agitating hell type of event like the EVIL GINSENG, it was a charmed high rather as if i increased SJW presently. I only started to care while my sense of time kinda got screwy and i kept going to support really late and insomnia was returning. I discern from experience that just leads to tumult and bad insomnia and problems and i wasnt in the disposition to mess myself up, when i felt FINE face to face with TBH.
It seems a variety of plants be delivered of an evolutionary incentive to evolve excessive chemicals that elicit complementary survival roles:
open spectrum ABX to ward off and put to death microorganism predators
broad spectrum nervous system psychoactive agents to drive macroscopic predators cray
who knew: plants were not constrain here by god to help humans.
Many vegetable compounds elicit profound psychoactive properties, that would probably be *enormous* in the spirited system of a field rodent… or in the sinewy system of a cow eating insane quantities of the put in the ground . In tiny doses, these chemicals be able to be fun recreational substances or bargain depression. Or, if ur hypersensitive like me, exact cause frigging problems. The evolved occupation however is SURVIVAL of the establish: it doesnt want fat ass dishearten eating it, or tiny mouse both. The ABX properties are also towards its survival, and only incidental humans can benefit (…or fall prey) too.
Based forward this deductive reasoning, i surmised it is with appearance of truth unwise to investigate any more herbal ABX. It is likely true somewhat plant that bothers to evolve ABX is at to multuous risk of predation/competition and too would by logic also evolve psychotropic substances to secure from attack. against grazing animals. Even if i *prepare* find another plant that is a respectable ABX, its just going to exist more cocaine all over again, and straight back to the original problem i be favored with with SJW.
So, I ruled used up oregano.
I stopped it, and sure enough my gut relapsed REALLY sad at that point. Oh teh mockery. I was *FINE* before messing by this , but taking it for like a week verily seemed to disrupt my flora, thus that when i tried to close up it, MAYHEM ensued. I likely axed prohibitory strains allowing for pathogenic ones to have ~ing disinhibited during OOO abstinence. Taking it was not some option, because i might as well equitable take more SJW if i was going to work out that, and i was NOT going to complete that, because thats a 1 second nature ticket to fail.
Thats when i began my nearest experiment: Grace Liu’s 6 conduct 250 CFU probiotic blend.
As fortune would have it , the probiotic I had ordered and intended to try ahead of writing this whole thing off came ~ the agency of mail. She was also kind enough to reckon up in free gift “prephage” which is a prebiotic appendix that selects for good flora.
As through the instructions, the probiotioc contains 6 strains of salutary non pathological bacterial strains that end not produce histamine or d-lactate. I assumed destitution of lactate might make these strains easier steady keto suppression, and i also hoped the shortcoming of histamine production would help by the ” bloated fatigue” issue i procure with conventional probiotics. My experience by typical lactobacillus products is they initially HELP my GI disquiet, but eventually produce constipation and furthermore TERRIBLE water retention and bloating what one. i suspect may be related to histamine produced .
I was singly interested in l. rhamnosus which i give credit to is a GABA producing strain and may better with sleep and calmness more consistently.
The yield gives you a “large” scoop, what one. delivers 250 CFUs (a huge prescribed portion , 10xs stronger than a decent OTC probiotic) , and a “stolid” scoop which delivers 1/10th of that, and prompted by emulation with your standard good quality OTC probiotic blends. Because my paunch was now terrible thanks to the hodge-podge i created by using OOO and stopp;ing it, i opted ~ the sake of the big scoop.
Like all probiotics, it worked! My GI got tasteless, pain free, no complaints here. If you are looking during a good quality , cost effective probiotic that allows you to work the dose as needed for symptoms, this is your work. If you have real GI problems from pathogenic plants such as bloating and pain and stool quality/consistency issues that impact wellbeing, this proceeds will ABSOLUTELY fix that pretty speedily.
The product actually seemed to HELP expanding and fluid retention so it appears my intuition was correct: probiotic related bloating is a histamine enigma, and this blend actually helps conquer fluid retention. This side effect was highly nice.
Mood was not so misty and crappy at first, so i have no confidence in this probiotic is useful if you fall upon conventional probiotics emo malaise inducing.
Like everything probiotics, it suppressed keto. Unfortunately my trust this would be a more “keto neuter” product was false and as traditionally observed ketones dropped to minute/ blood minimal keto. Now if i wanted to i could certainly go my ketones up by eating a 3:1 diet or a person of consequence but IMO a normal person ought to be the subject of ketones of 1+ on a MAD mode of speech diet that contains 70-75% fruitful. Sadly my metabolism sucks and the impediment of the probiotic just pushes my keto to “neat terrible”.
However, the benefits in c~tinuance my gut at this time were not little, and i was willing to allow (or risk) keto blunting to resolve that hotch-potch.
This was just around Christmas, and i was sentiment fine, but i suppose excessive caustic (another insult) in combination with keto detention resulted in me developing some SAD like symptoms. Its too quite possible taking that stupid hebal antidepressant determined me up for rebound SAD symptoms while i stopped it.
So i kinda got into that seasonal mist zone where you sleep like dead character, dont want to get up, first place is like cotton, tiny narrow seeing, heavy painful body, low emos, tot~y that bullshit. Big time mockery went from being like “oooh this is too stimulating ” to “cant get out of couch”. Woo lyfe.
Long story friable cuz this is way too lengthy, I amped up light therapy, took a iota more SJW (a tiny bit) and restricted nap. I did all the stuff you discern you have to do when you cause to be dark season fail (which like, at no time happens these days.) It resolved readily in just a week of sad my hacks.
I also began using ketone salts another time.
My logic was as follows.
I NEED a probiotic beneficial to my fail GI, at least ~ful now i do.
I NEED ketones in the place of my fail brain
Perhaps a dwarfish dose of a probiotic + exogenous ketones are the no other than thing i can do right at this time.
So adding on ketone salts and a a great quantity smaller dose of the probiotic was fairly successful.
This entry is pretty long, likewise for the people interested and rendering I have decided to split it into couple parts. In the next entry I bequeath describe reeexamining ketone salts and discovering uses since it, in the appropriate contexts.
Once to a greater degree, it seems herbal broad spectrum ABX withstand improve ketones by axing GI plants .
Unfortunately, it appears a common grievance for plants to evolve both antibiotics and psychtropics in the same time . They want to KILL ALL THE TINGS.
All probiotic substances are keto concealing, which is a big deal grant that ketones are medicine.
Tiny drench probiotic with exogenous ketones if needful may be good solution / response during the term of the dual needs of fail GI and fade brains in the same individual.
