This video walks through the chemistry of weight loss – where does weight go? Chemically?

Short answer, we exhale it as carbon. But there is a catch, there is always a catch. We need to have a well functioning respiratory system, including our mitochondria.

The video shares a quest to understand the speaker’s own weight loss better. He does a great job showing us the chemicals that form most of our body. The atoms arranged in the molecular shapes show us that we are kind and of like Lego creatures, built from various shaped building blocks.

For those who watch the video and feel frustrated with his synopsis – eat less to lose weight – I hear you. Other replies also felt similar frustration. The chemistry may seem that simple as the basic equations however add in subclinical hypothyroidism and the basic equations are inadequate to help the person lose weight.

The Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is being discussed in the TEDx talk. It represents how much energy we burn even while sleeping – our need with no additional exercise. Someone with a lower RMR, someone with subclinical hypothyroidism or inadequately treated, would need far fewer calories as a baseline. They could have trouble losing weight on 600-800 calories a day – starvation diet for anyone else.

Bitter tasting phytonutrients in a meal are also key for promoting satiety and preventing insulin resistance. Oregano, garlic, leeks, citrus peel, celery seed, black pepper, basil, cumin, leafy green veggies, – any strongly flavored produce item, herb or spice, likely contains some bitter taste accents.

Breathe in aroma and flavor, and get moving to promote good respiratory health throughout the body’s many mitochondria and the lungs.

Bitter tasting citrus bioflavonoids are very helpful for reducing lung congestion and symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome. Citrus can be a histamine trigger food – caution.

Sunburn pox update

The larger blisters still hurt and itched even after more black seed oil. Aloe Vera gel had helped some yesterday, but today, thinking sunburn pox instead of viral infection, I tried a cold-water washcloth on the worst spots and kept it cold until the itch and pain had faded.

It is a pretty bad urge to scratch . . . the living daylight out of it. But no, self-injury, resist the endorphins. There is some good feeling with scratching initially but that is how it can get worse fast and scab.

Skin care during and after radiation therapy for breast cancer.

It can resemble a sunburn or mild tan afterwards or blistering. It says the severity is unrelated to a person’s tendency to tan or sunburn. That suggests that severity is related to something else, like maybe VAIDs- level of detox or immune function. How quickly can a person clear out the excess oxidative stress chemicals?

Addition – 5G roll-out may be affecting more people in subtle ways than we realize and skin rashes may be one of the symptoms of excessive EMF exposure.

Aloe Vera gel is a tip, and avoid extreme hot or cold packs, or rough fabric. I found after thinking of it as a bad sunburn that a cold water-soaked washcloth as a cold compress did help. The black seed oil has not fully helped as much with these larger blisters. Was really itchy today. The cold helped and is the solution for a scald type burn – cool water until it feels like the internal burning has stopped.

Aloe Vera gel or thinned juice is available for sale in health food stores and needs refrigeration once opened. Emodin (spelling? – is correct (1), is a phytonutrient in aloe which is particularly healing. The jelly like fiber in Aloe gel helps restore our jelly like membrane linings, the Glycocalyx, or extracellular matrix. It may be safer topically than as a juice or food ingredient if used in quantity as there may be some kidney toxicity. (1)

Aloe gel followed by essential oil in a massage base oil can help with skin health or scar reduction. Frankincense and rosemary are good for healing skin. I also add a little tea tree oil as an antiseptic; and be

*This was two posts on my Substack and I have combined them with a few additions.

*Monkey/sunburn pox update – ouch, the sunburn spots didn’t go away as quickly as my previous smaller spots. The cold compress helped, I used that a lot on the worst day, and fell asleep with it. Flaw: then cold clammy damp fabric led to a few more spots. Moderation and good skin care – wash with soap occasionally, re black seed oil, change tops as wetness occurs. A bandage almost seems like it could be protective. No clothes on it is better, but cold.

The first spots have flattened and scabbed a little. This is no fun but the black seed oil does help, the cold compresses helped a lot during the worst of the itchiness or stinging pain. I used aloe vera gel a couple times. I have used artemisinin once or twice a day and a spoonful of black seed oil am and pm by mouth. I take a variety of supplements routinely.

I napped more, and avoiding heavy yardwork for a few days. Pushing myself initially did lead to more of the sunburn spots on my shoulder. Rest is important when the body is inflamed and trying to clean out the oxidative stress chemicals.

High dose niacin is still my go too, but for the half hour of niacin flush, cold compress time on the sunburn pox! The itching is worse with these bigger blisters.

In general now, when feeling a little sicker I take the niacin three instead of two times a day. Yes there is a half hour worsening during the flush of warmth and itchiness. The body will be removing inflammation though all day, so the benefit outweighs the discomfort in my opinion.

Serotonin deficiency is a risk if you suddenly stop taking high dose niacin…

(and melatonin – I take both, melatonin 15 minutes prior, I set a timer or I will forget).

Addition 9/7/2022: *Also once you are following the high dose niacin protocol you need to maintain or only gradually reduce the doses to prevent serotonin disruption. Adding more rapidly can lead to excess serotonin, suddenly stopping high doses may lead to a drop in serotonin and “Crying over nothing” TM moods – sadness and depression. While this article does not mention niacin or tryptophan it does review what symptoms low serotonin might lead to: Serotonin Deficiency: Symptoms, Causes, Tests, Treatments (healthline). Drops in serotonin level may also lead to irritability, aggression, impulsiveness, and may be linked to suicidal urges, PTSD, and bowel trouble/IBS. Healthy gut microbes make most of our serotonin for us and some gets transported to the brain via the vagus nerve – our superhighway between our central and peripheral nervous systems. Axons are tubules between nerve cells and chemicals, mitochondria and exosomes can travel along the route.

Niacin, melatonin, artemisinin, black seed oil, methyl B complex – things I have been using.

The niacin also tends to leave me less congested and more clear-headed and energetic. The methyl B complex is also important and other mitochondrial cofactors and trace minerals. Our mitochondria burn energy most efficiently and need nutrients to be able to do so. Also not having excess Retinoic Acid or a high saturated fat diet (previous post) is needed so the PDK is not inhibiting use of the Citric Acid Cycle.

Overweight often is inflammation and a diet that is too high in carbohydrates and/or fat and low in other nutrients. This leads to inefficient burning of energy by the mitochondria. The Citric Acid Cycle is much more efficient, quantum biology efficient possibly. Cancer and other degenerative diseases are also linked to the mitochondria switching to fermentation for energy production.

How many carbon atoms will be exhaled depends on part on whether the person’s mitochondria are using the Citric Acid Cycle or fermentation.

It helps to understand the basics, the forest – the overall picture, and also to see the many trees that make up the forest – the variables that make the easy answer into a complex one.

  • Still need to get out my laptop, I am taking an EMF vacation for pox healing purposes or a mental health break or both.

Solar flares/EMP, false flags, & sunburn? – solar radiation pox?

Various brief updates and Histamine Food *and Alkalizing food handout pdf link/s.

False flags as an opener – fear is disabling and staging events to generate fear or distract from other events has occurred repeatedly in US and other history. There may be something on the way this weekend. Courage is persevering sensibly in spite of whatever is being thrown at us.

Avoiding crowds might be sensible. Avoiding the jabbed folks is a warning, that may not be possible, keep your guard up folks, whether jabbed or unjabbed. None of us know what may be possible with the new biotech that has been used. EMF can increase calcium entry into cells which can be stimulating to an excessive, possibly dangerous point. We don’t know what we don’t know and caution and common sense is all we really have for sure.

The rumor mill has had alien “war” as a potential false flag on the way but that rumor got so much advance warning that new talk is that it may have been switched to a “Rapture Event” of some sort instead. Be cautious, be sensible, odd times have been here for a while. Peace be with you in your physical and energy forms. We are just here temporarily before we may be dancing in the starry skies for ourselves.

Epsom salt hand/foot- soaks or a bath can be fairly quickly calming if there is a calcium excess causing mood or pain problems. Acute drop in magnesium level can cause sudden rage and is part of why there is “bar fights” – urinate more, lose magnesium, become acutely deficient and easily enraged.

Solar flares / Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)

Solar flares/EMP is something emergency preparedness folks think about (and do something about) in advance because the event would be quite random in timing. Back up electronic parts and hard drives and cars and cell phones and much of modern life could have its electronics over-heated and ruined. Replacement parts would be needed for cars and the power grid may fail.

  • This is very short: EMP and CME are a threat we need to take seriously, (preparednessadvice.com).
  • This has the policies involved: The Power Industry and EMP, Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, (power-grid.com)

Fairly cost-effective buffering gadgets do exist for power stations but the money was never federally given or mandated.

Low budget quick fix for those of us who don’t plan ahead – large glvanized steel garbage cans or older sturdy decorative tins are completely enclosed metal and can work as a Faraday cage to collect the magnetic field. The electronics within the metal need to be in insulated cardboard, or thick fabric, or wood, or plastic, to separate the device from the metal. WiFi blocking cases for airport security use would also be protective but maybe stick that in the decorative tin. Check the blocking power by putting a battery-operated radio turned on loud enough to hear inside of the metal device. If the sound stops the metal is enclosed enough. Or try calling a cell phone that is inside of it. A large filing cabinet or metal cabinet is metal but may have too many gaps.

My electric rice cooker – is something small I like and is a computerized device. I like my car too, but it is big. A metal sipping container would be a big metal box but have the car on the rubber wheels – not touching the metal container.

EMP is an Electro magnetic pulse – a strong magnetic field that can be generated by a solar flare. More info: EMP Proof Vehicle (preparednessadvice.com)

Although it is commonly thought that an EMP would have drastic effects on modern day vehicles that are outfitted with a variety of electronic systems that help them run, this is actually not the case.

As discussed previously, most cars have their wiring and electronics pretty well shielded against any electromagnetic interference, as well as the chassis of the car acting as a Faraday cage.

A Faraday cage is an enclosure that is conductive and as a result will cause electromagnetic pulses to travel along this conductive outside structure, effectively protecting whatever is inside.

With this being said, there is still the potential for an EMP to cause some sort of electrical interference in modern day cars. One of the best ways to ensure that your car will function in the event of an EMP attack is to drive a diesel fuel vehicle.

Diesel engines do not have an ignition system, which most normal fuel cars do have and often involves some sort of electronic fuel injection system that could be interrupted by some sort of EMP attack.” (preparednessadvice.com)

Solar flares have been active recently: Huge Sunspot Pointed Straight at Earth Has Developed a Delta Magnetic Field, (newsweek.com).

Some older links I had on a different website:

Histamine Foods to avoid or those that might help:

Here is my document/handout on histamine food categories to avoid or that might help. Narrowing down what is inflammatory needs to be quite thorough for best symptom control.

I had forgotten peanut butter when changing my mom’s diet until I reread my handout. I had excluded peanuts a long time ago for myself and forgot they were on the histamine avoid list. It helped to switch her to almond butter. https://www.dropbox.com/s/iz4yui7p8naotur/Histamine%20Food%20Lists%20%282%29.pdf?dl=0 Downloadable pdf I believe.

Not scratching a sunburn?

Last point – I did get some more small not too bad pox on my legs, I haven’t slowed down and rested enough, but none got as bad as the patch on my chest – in the sunburn zone. I was out on a sunny day a lot more than typical prior to waking up scratching. So maybe two rules for me – sunscreen and no scratching. I am sun sensitive and can burn easily. Solar radiation leading to sunburn would be a radiation burn, and radiation can mimic “pox”. See the Substack link in my first post on this topic. Switching gears…

Switching gears to – Monkey/shingles/chicken/smallpox

Too much friction is likely part of the risk of Monkey pox based on my own shingles/chicken pox experiences. They can appear in embarrassing locations that receive too much friction – like on the side of the knee when wearing tight jeans. Do mosquitoes bite through jeans? Yes, they can. The mosquito Itch ointment that usually helped didn’t help though…Read more5 days ago · 10 likes · Jennifer Depew, R.D.

Overall point: Fear itself is disabling and may be the point in addition to creating chaos that might make some takeover easier for someone. Good luck and peace be with you all.
