I'm glad it has helped you Beth! It also helped me through my studies abroad. Without it I would have stayed in bed all day, or worst case probably tried to end the suffering. I hope politicians and the people in power can stop being bribed, open their eyes to recent studies and start changing how we treat people. We know so much more now. 

Reset.me is a portal from the post CNN reporter Amber Lyon, who got PTSD from horrible events through journalism and has now started reporting psychedelics. She cured her PTSD with psilocybin mushrooms.  

A great live interview on TV w/ Amber >

I stumbled across an article while reading. It reminded me of this post and your problem. 




In Topic: Weight Loss Seems Impossible

05 June 2014 - 07:44 AM

Ok, so here is what I have gathered after reading books written by professional athletes and people who work hard gaining weight ("but she said loose weight?!" Yatta yatta, wait for iit...) I don't focus on fat loss, but weight gaining and muscle building, so please correct me if I am wrong and don't hate! Don't trust anyone blindly and always read up to be certain.

If you want to gain weight you need a surplus of 200 calories above your base level, including the amount expended with activity. So from a rest rate of lets say... 1800, then 2600 cal is required with moderate acitivity, 2800-3000 for weight gain when working out heavy 3x a week. From what I understand, the exact opposite applies for loosing weight. You have to eat "less" to loose weight, but at the same time you cannot let the numbers go too far down as your body stops functioning for one, and secondly it will go into survival mode. Meaning it will hang on to whatever it can to survive, and start to degenerate your muscles for bigger sources of nutrients. So baseline + figure out what you usually would need to maintain your weight, then deduct 200 from that.

I think it has more to do with balancing acids in the body. The less acidic food you eat, the less your body will hold on the fat and the quicker it should go. I might be off here so please correct me. Eating less carbs, more fats and protein, more greens as they don't add any weight, but zero them selves out. Then you'll build more muscles, still have energy converted from the fats and require less complex carbs which otherwise, would be stored as fat, if you didn't require more direct energy. Don't get me wrong, you need carbs, but through greens you get carbs that doesn't add any to your frame. 

Also from what you wrote I think you are on the right path. A combination of heavy weights and cardio should do the trick. Just give it time and try to tweak what you are doing. That is always the key to see progression and success with fitness. Drastic changes in program and diet usually won't do any good.

Oh, and by the way. Please please please, if you're going to do crossfit... don't set yourself up for injury with improper form. *cough*, "youtube"

Good luck!

I agree with you on some points, and some I disagree with. I'll agree that they have been banned because people have harmed them selves in the past. I disagree that they did it in the right way. A complete ban is wrong. Stopping studies is wrong. It is neglectful and stupid. We loose a lot of potential medicine and open a world of street drugs. Recent studies show that they DO have healing effects on the brain. First and for most it can help with chronic depression, anxiety, PTSD, but most importantly and amazingly; it can cause brain cells to regenerate and grow.

As far as you say safe, do you mean safe for the brain? Or safe, as in psyche? There clearly is evidence that it does not harm the brain. Much like a low dose of MDMA will not cause any permanent damage and any damage that does happen reverses with time. Obvious problems there is the abuse by teenagers at festivals, clubs, concerts etc. I don't see why someone would add anything to psychedelics like mushrooms before selling as it serves no purpose. With coke, mdma etc yes. I get the part about trained personal. I agree! There is lack of this and this is why I want to see medical centres for people to explore these things in. To have safe environments where it can be used properly with the real stuff, not some street garbage. 

I know this will take a long time, but I think discarding their healing benefits because of past abuse is wrong. We need to start with a clean slate and see it for what it really is. When used appropriately :) They can do amazing things. The war on drugs, is more a war towards people opening their minds. The government, pharmaceutical companies, politicians and the likes have no people in their interest. That should be quite clear by now. Hopefully we can turn things around and help the majority of people that need help. This goes far beyond any substance though.

I agree with cyclinglady on this one. Your body will produce everything except the 11 amino acids that it cannot produce. This is why meats are such a great source of protein, but we don't need to eat as much as most people do. Oviously we can get it from specific plants and other foods like quinoa and so forth (lysine is an example that quinoa is rich off of, which is hard to get outside of meat). All I'm saying that a well balanced meal is required to fill the spectrum, and meat can make it easier. Myself have debated going vegan once I am fully healed due to the fact I can't stand the way our food is being treated. We are so disconnected, and it feels like the stuff just comes out of nowhere. Poor animals...

I believe everything that is "not-so-good-for-you" In moderation is "ok", but if you are in a healing process from celiacs then it is suggested not to. The body will manage to get rid of most toxics and has an amazing ability to filter stuff. Except when your GI tract is broken and you get everything into your bloodstream.

Check out Gluten Summit which is hosted by the wonderful Dr. Tom'o Bryan who has a good grasp of A.I (auto immune) diseases. Thyroid Sessions has a lot of good information too. SCD Lifestyle is run by two who have celiacs and have struggled most of their lives. After figuring out what it was and gotten a grasp on it they became physicians and are now on the road to help more people. 

I suggest checking Gluten Summit as they have a list of all the doctors and practitioner they have interviewed. Over 40 who specialise in their own unique part of the body, but all related to A.I or celiacs.
