I'm struggling with some issues related to adrenal fatigue. Recently I got myself tested and my morning cortisol was 8, my acth was 12. I was suffering from low blood pressure and postural hypotension. Sodium was low at 135. I took hydrocortisone for 5 weeks. Started with 20+20+20mg. Took my last 2.5 mg yesterday.
About 4 days after starting this treatment I started suffering from high blood pressure. Even as we tapered the dose and now that we have stopped altogether I still suffer from diastolic hypertension and it stays in the 85 to 95 range, even if I take a beta blocker. Pulse is high too between 90-105. Any ideas what's going on? My aldosterone is less than 0.9
New artists have burst onto the music scene, pushing the boundaries of R&B music. One of them is Canadian singer Abél Makonnen Tesfaye, commonly known as The Weeknd.I would like to recommend pls do listen to his musiC.
In a nutshell, I have suffered from lower limb and upper arm heaviness for over 20 years. There has never been any numbness, pins and needles etc… Lower legs just feel like dead weights. Symptoms worse in hot weather. Neuro-muscular diseases have been ruled out. Only note made was ‘marked reduction in muscle fibre fat content’ from a muscle biopsy. I have had an unsuccessful fasciotomy. I have also had back, spine MRI (and with contrast). Full Cardio-vascular examination with echo. Also ruled out PAES. The only other symptom is a speech impediment/poor breathing which is always worst first thing.
I’m a 43 year old male athlete who has suffered with bi-lateral lower leg and upper arm ache/heaviness for over 20 years. Symptoms first noticed in 1995 (21 years old) – I felt the heaviness in both lower legs suddenly whilst running. I have suffered from the condition every day since. Thankfully the ache reached peak intensity in 1997 when even just standing up was excruciating. I couldn’t run and walking was more like a slow shuffle. Legs felt like lead weights. Same symptoms presented in upper arms in 2000, again with sudden onset. The ache is still present in lower legs and arms but does vary in its intensity. Walking is tolerable but going up stairs or running will immediately bring on the symptoms. Some days are worse than others but every time I run I endure the symptoms. For the first few minutes the running is OK but gradually the muscles in the legs become weary and if I was to continue for over 20 minutes my running is reduced to a very slow shuffle. As soon as I stop running, the weariness fades very rapidly.
• I have never experienced numbness, tingling, pins and needles in limbs. Just this heaviness
• Feels like I am running in treacle or waist high water at worst. It’s never pain but an incredibly exhausting/burning sensation like the lower legs are about to burst. Once I stop the leg ache immediately fades almost to nothing.
• When running at max, feels like I am over-heating.
• Legs ache a lot more in hot weather and conversely better in the Winter
• Upper arms also fatigue on weight-bearing activity or used vigorously. For example I can do 15 press-ups but beyond that incredibly hard work to continue. Just doing a single press-up can be excruciating beyond a certain point. When sprinting, pumping the arms also brings on the ache.
• Legs and body ache when standing in hot shower/sitting in hot bath
• I find running barefooted easier and quicker
• Instant and intense leg ache upon any intense effort e.g. running up a single flight of stairs, running on soft ground. Fades immediately upon cessation of effort
• Legs even feel weary when seated in the office in hot weather
• Symptoms developed in both upper arms whilst swimming. Again, it happened suddenly. I can swim OK in cold water but in a heated pool I can barely manage a few lengths before my arms become heavy
• Can’t explain it but speaking feels like hard work and quickly fatigues. Voice becomes hoarse, weak. Usually worse in the morning but any sustained talking and my voice quickly tires. Even when not talking, throat feels like it’s being squeezed.
• Left arm feels numb when running
• Do have an occasional skin rash on back and chest
• I did donate blood for the first time around the time the symptoms appeared.
• Low Carb diet also worsened symptoms considerably
• Iron supplement had short term benefit
• RBC count is 4.37. Haematocrit is 0.399.
• RA Latex slightly raised – 20.00
• Diagnosed with underactive Thyroid. Prescribed Thyroxin but no change.
Clonus is a condition that results in involuntary muscle spasms and most commonly affects the muscles at the end of a limb. Clonus can be a condition in itself, or it can be a symptom of another condition.
Clonus mainly affects the knees, ankles, upper and lower arm muscles, and the jaw. These involuntary muscle contractions can make everyday activities quite challenging and even lead to debilitating fatigue.
Clonus is often confused with myoclonus, a condition in which the muscle uncontrollably jerks. A person cannot control clonus and living with it can be quite challenging. Here we will outline the causes, symptoms, tests, and treatments of clonus to help you have a better understanding of the condition.
Clonus causes and symptoms
Clonus is caused by a disconnect of information flowing between the central nervous system and the affected muscles. Clonus most commonly affects muscles at the ends of limbs, including ankles, wrists, etc.
Clonus can also be caused by a medical condition such as multiple sclerosis, Huntington disease, spinal cord and brain injuries, meningitis, stroke, upper motor neuron lesion, spastic paraparesis, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, Brown-Sequard syndrome, and cerebral palsy. Uncovering the underlying cause of clonus is important to help determine which modes of treatment will yield the greatest success.
The main symptom of clonus is involuntary muscle spasms. These muscle spasms can be sudden, shock-like, intensive, and frequent. Clonus may affect only one muscle or several muscles, and it can spread to different muscle groups. A severe case of clonus can even impair speech or movement.
Hi everyone im new and im on day 2 of 40 days. I tried reading about other people fasting and them asking others questions and everyone went on a rant how much muscle and water she'd lose and very little fat. I know she'll lose both but not more muscle and water than fat.
Yes im doing it for weight loss bite me. Ive done 1 ten day water fast and a 4. I didnt gain it back but maybe i wasnt doing it long enough? What im asking is were OP right? Would you lose mostly muscle and water and a minimal amt of fat?
Fasts/diets are a waste of time, and health. You always gain it back and doing it too much makes you vulnerable to getting very sick.
Your body thinks you are starving and since it's happened once, the body assumes it will happen again. So it saves MORE fat for next time in addition to what it had saved before you fasted.
So every fast, weird a$$ diet that seems like you're starving or even significantly are not getting enough to eat, will always trigger that.
You can eat as carefully after as you want. Your body will find ways to regain all it had stolen by the fast or whatever plus more for next time.
I use EFT and muscle testing, and what I've learned is the need to store excess weight is completely dependent on your body's ability to keep itself healthy. If you have overweight relatives, chances are good there's a lot of messed up DNA coding in your health' programing. In a system as old as human bodies are, it wouldn't be unlikely that systems aren't functioning right, considering we've never had upgrades or even updates, eh?
But every body does have a ideal human template where, using muscle testing and EFT, you can redo your DNA y using the stored 'right' version there. I got my weight regulation process back on line finally. Wow, all the ways I found that the code was messed up---corrupted, missing, missing DNA, work arounds using code from other things that kept the system barely limping along, the DNA strands being kinked and so on. It took months to get through the layers of damage/fixes needed. Now, the weight is just melting away. I don't have to do anything. It's fixed and working like it should have, all along.
But ohh what a profitable industry the 'elites' have created by weight shaming us, making us think skinny is so much better, to get us to try and make our damaged bodies behave as if they're fixed by using methods and products that only make it worse. *cha-ching!!* and on we go, chasing an unobtainable unrealistic goal while giving all our money to the weight loss industries own by the 'elites' and their pet pharmaceutical cartel.
It's never about will power--look at those folks who eat like horses and never gain a pound. That's how it's supposed to work. They do start gaining weight when old age starts interfering with their ability to stay healthy though, as well. So, as esoteric as this may sound, after 30 years of chasing the pharmaceutical lie of 'weight loss', I stopped, realizing the waste of time, effort and money it all was.
I hung out then at a weight that was higher than the official' version said I should be but it never increased as it was doing before while I tried to 'manage' it using the cartel lies.. Healed my body, and realized that nothing the cartel pushed ever fixed that.
So I dug around and found the real reason--messed up body programs that couldn't function properly. Muscle testing said EFT could fix nerve/DNA issues, so I got busy. And yes, it did fix DNA/ nerve problems and I'm just dropping weight now effortlessly.
If you want real lasting weight loss, learn muscle testing and EFT. (it won't cost a penny--you can just hear the cartel employees howl) And save yourself gobs of money and stress.
That's a silly generalization and for those of us who have been successful with fasting and maintainining weight loss it's more than a bit ridiculous . Keep in mind I'm not replying to your post to convince you of anything. You obviously have your mind made up. I am replying only for the benefit of others who may read it and need to know that your statements are simply false.
Well of course you aren't replying to me---you are just protecting all these poor helpless posters who might learn to think for themselves--that'd be a darn shame.
The pharmaceutical cartel wants you to fast---the longer the better. You'll need much more of the products they so 'helpfully' sell after you've destroyed your health. They love it--how easy it is to get brainwashed people convinced it's good to starve your body for days or months. When all you're really doing is starving yourself to death.
Oh it's a big win for them. They rub their hands in glee at the prospect of all that profit.
My brother died from complication of a long fast. His heart gave out. And any person IRL, I've met who fasted always looked sickly to me. I'm going with my version. It's a scam to kill you but get as much of your money first by getting you to buy a bunch of worthless supplements first.
This is all propaganda and not based on science. Show us evidence that people who do long fasts need prescription or OTC drugs after they're done. Sorry about your relative dying but they were the exception not the rule. Maybe your ignorant comments are based on your fears and feelings of loss. You can work through those feelings but this isn't the place to do it. Find a good psychotherapist. Good luck.
If the 'elites' want us to kill ourselves by starving ourselves to death like a bunch of brainwashed monkeys, are they going to leave such 'studies' that show it is extremely harmful lying around?? Com'on man. Use your head. You shouldn't 'need' studies for such obvious common sense!
What makes you ANY different than a bulimic?? You just don't need to throw up because you don't eat. Just because our bodies developed coping strategies to survive periods of involuntary starvation, is hardly any kind of proof we're better for having starved. Talk about propaganda.
It's the same bunch manipulating us with the 'oh, I'm so 'morally superior' because I don't get angry and fight back.' idiocy. How is it better to be dead or enslaved, really?? What dictator/police state wouldn't love a 'morally superior' population like that?? And entirely for THEIR benefit. The reality is just freakin' common sense!
And, I said it makes you buy lots of pharmaceutical cartel products--they own ALL the Drugs/doctors AND natural health venues. You're buying their product with every bottle of herbs, vitamins, supplements,and any other miracle/wondrous new discovery that magically fixes stuff--with all the fake 'research' to support it--just like they do with their drugs. After you've totally wrecked your body's homeostasis, you'll be keeping them very well supported, as you struggle to regain what you let them trick you into throwing away.
And nah, my brother and I never really got along--of all my siblings, he was the one I had the least attachment to. It affected one of my sisters and brother much more than my older sister and I.
I have a double masters in systems counseling where you basically learned how to counsel by using the tools to fix some of your issues, right there in the program, so they could see your understanding of the process. To help with denial, you get PLENTY of written and oral feedback from all your peers and faculty. It's required. Nothing slipped thru the cracks---you hear about your issues in triplicate at least. Ow.
But nope nobody said a word. They did note I didn't seem to have much of a need for familial connection. And I don't, but it's still very bad someone died so needlessly basing decisions on propaganda from the "elites'.
The Mandela Effect was first described by a blogger who attended the 2010 Dragon Con, costume play/cosplay for sci-fi, fantasy and gamers. The electronic interface is of paramount importance as to electromagnetic radiation exposures and related factors influencing--and deranging--our perception.
The Mandela Effect was so named for a plethora of people "remembering" that Nelson Mandela died in prison. One notorious false memory is that of the Bible passage of the "lion laying down with the lamb." But the real Bible citation of Isaiah says the wolf will lay down with the lamb; the leopard/lion will lay down with the lamb/sheep/kid.
The likelihood is not that some quantum effect is changing cultural artifacts as has been posited, but that our cognitive functioning is losing some of the Christmas tree branches upon which to hang a wider variety of categories and relational options, leaving a spindly stick of certitude, possibly the great delusion mentioned in the Bible for the latter days.
For example, instead of category options regarding the memory file for "the lion will lay down with the lamb" there is a loss of mental flexibility that might realize that pop literature might have repeated this meme more frequently than Sunday services quoted the Bible because the meme has a nice alliterative structure. The false certitude engendered by various environmental assaults on cognition corners one into the "somebody changed the Bible to 'wolf and lamb.'"
The first line of defense is brain protection: food that feeds the Hippocampus involved in learning, memory and sleep quality and quantity; the choline found in egg yolks and soy lecithin; proper antioxidants that cross the blood-brain barrier like selenium and L-Lipoic Acid; and avoidance of anti-foods like inflammatory oils and phake phats that are like feeding our starving lipo-protein dog of a brain a rubber bone. This nicely parallels Dr. Joel (DEAD DOCTORS DON'T LIE)Wallach's counsel with his emphasis on down-home lipids like butter and eggs as well as supportive arrays of vitamins and minerals.
Colin Wilson noted in his book, THE OUTSIDER, that 5% of humans are resistant to brainwashing. So in our midst, there are probably a fixed percentage of humans that are immune to the morphological, chemical and electrical insults assailing modern brains.
Technology gave us: solvent exposure that melts brains, including the oxidizer in gasoline that first induced "road rage"; FrankenFoods and demineralized, irritating food as nitrate fertilizer burned minerals from fragile soil colloids; electromagnetic/EMF fields that open cell portals to leak their guts out and let in toxins; hypnotic flashing media that can entrain the brain or even induce epilepsy seen in Japan; literal structural brain changes to those addicted to computer gaming; and a sedentary deathstyle that refuses to walk when waking acts like the brain-boosting "patterning" used in therapy for those with neurological damage.
The stressed thyroid is the camp ground for the forgotten parathyroid that regulates blood calcium levels. One type of dementia is caused by calcification of the brain and mid-brain glands that can be the result of parathyroid stress from: a sub-acute infection; systemic fungus/yeast from antibiotic use; radiation exposure as from hours spent near routers; mycoplasm as deployed in the Gulf War; and auto-immune responses from things like FrankenFoods. The effect of a sick parathyroid laying down calcium in a hyperactive attempt to quench any demineralized inflamed tissue with calcium is aggravated by fluoride that will slap that trash calcium down like mad in everything from bone spurs, into muscles while inducing Fibromyalgia effects, and into the precious brain causing a certain reversible dottiness. A blood calcium level might disclose the basis for THE MANDELA EFFECT.
WHY ARE...? WHY ARE WE QUESTIONING THE KING JAMES BIBLE AND NOT OURSELVES? Because this is one of the boiled frog effects. I know what I know what I know. COGITO ERGO SUM. I think, therefore I am. Better we should lightheartedly question ourselves and proclaim, "I think, therefore I think I am. And have some eggs.
Hello, all! I have some serious muscle problems and I live in a house so I want to install an earthing system. Today I will go get my earthing mat that I bought from Mercola. It has a good square-like electroconductive surface with a cover that is also el-conductive. Anyway... My question:
I will not use the normal electrical circuit to connect to my earthing mat. I want to put a ground rod outside the house. The thing is that whenever I talk to electrical technicians they always start telling me that the rod has to be 2m in the ground and some really special device should be used to measure the current and bla bla. But I am not sure if they are just saying this because that is the standard procedure when u ground a house or an electrical device. Do i really need to do these special things or do I just need a normal 1m rod in the ground that is connected to a copper wire and then to my earthing pad/mat? I don't see why it would matter if it is 1m or 2m in and why exactly I would need to measure the current or other things with special devices (different from normal volt meter). Any advice? How did u go about earthing yourself when not using the normal electrical circuit of your house?
The way I set up my earthing system was to pound a 4 foot long piece of 1/2 inch rebar in the ground and then hook up a wire that I ran into the house through a small opening by a window - I hooked a smaller earthing wire to that larger wire. I think driving the ground rod deep enough helps to ensure that you will have good conduction with ground even if you were to have dry weather for a while (the soil stays moist the deeper you go). Two meters seems longer than necessary, but not unreasonable.
