Re: Psychedelic Drugs

Thanks. The book is definitely going on my reading list! I've never used psilocybin, but my experiences with LSD have all been incredibly positive. I just wish it were possible to make well-informed decisions about dosage and frequency of use. I'm not really comfortable with the idea of tripping mor...

Psychedelic Drugs

What do we know about the neurotoxicity of LSD and other psychedelic drugs? Could there be benefits such as allostatic load reduction? Or good reasons to completely abstain from psychedelics?

Re: Morning mineral cocktail?

I can't wait to try some of these ideas. The turmeric and ginger sounds great. I usually drink espresso in the morning. I used to drink coffee with cream, but I've finally managed to ditch the dairy. I found that once the cream was gone, the taste and strength of the coffee became more important, so...

Re: Gundry Soda

I tried out the Gundry soda recipe and it's really amazing! I'm now using it for breaking my fasts — it's especially great on a hot day. I learnt the hard way that it's better for my body to break longer fasts gently, and the vinegar seems to do a good job of waking up my digestive system. I'm inter...

Re: Overwhelmed 30yo 4/4

Hi loudallison, Welcome to the forums! I'm also 4/4 and relatively new here. I can definitely relate to feeling sad and overwhelmed. For me, learning my 4/4 status was a huge shock. I remember reading my 23AndMe report while sitting in a lecture, and feeling as if I wanted to scream. I went through ...

Re: The Magic Pill

Thanks for sharing ncrocker! As a South African, I was especially happy to see the footage of Tim Noakes. His work first inspired me to try eating low-carb. Incidentally, if there're any other South Africans browsing these forums, feel free to give me a shout! I'm living overseas at the moment, but ...

Re: Joe Rogan Experience #1108 - Peter Attia

Thanks apod, this was really fun to listen to! I also like the fact that Peter Attia doesn't try to oversell anything. Incidentally, I read on his website that he'll be starting a podcast this year. It might be worth checking out. His comments about IGF-1 are very interesting. I definitely have a lo...

Re: Age 24 and 4/4: Trying to Plan a Healthy (Student) Life

Thanks for the posts Karengo and jordansmom! I really appreciate all the support. Karengo, I'm busy working my way through the Primer. Thanks — it's been really useful so far. Jordansmom, I'll probably do my dissertation in astrophysics. The specific topic will depend on my advisor, but it could be ...

Age 24 and 4/4: Trying to Plan a Healthy (Student) Life

Hi everyone, A few weeks ago, my 23AndMe results arrived. Guess what? I'm 4/4. My maternal grandmother has Alzheimer's and my mum is 3/4. I'm still processing the news and think about my results every day. Thanks for this online community — these forums have been a huge form of support. For the past...
