I wasn’t sure about creating this journal. I’m still not sure.
I’ve enjoyed good health and vitality and a sharp intellect for most of my life, but about a month ago I was hit with a health crisis.
The symptoms were both physical and mental. Physically my muscles became weak and stiff and injury prone, even walking could easily result in a sprained tendon, and I would wake with random pain in joints and muscles. I also had a lot of headaches, dizziness and nausea. Mentally I would randomly get periods of confusion, mental exhaustion, and there were times I would struggle badly to remember basic things, e.g. my address. Turned out to be a major chemical imbalance causing all this, although what triggered it is unknown. I’m undergoing treatment by my doctor via medication, which is helping, but the treatment cycle will likely be several months or longer.
I had been running Alchemist at the time, but about 3 weeks ago I stopped and went back to Spartan, which is the closest thing to a health sub we have here. I’m pretty bummed about stopping Alchemist, but I’ll get back to it next year. I’m also adding Quantum Limitless, hoping ST1 will help with the mental issues. Normal exercise is currently not feasible due to risk of injury, but I’ve started using the 5 Tibetan Rites to get my body moving and help regain some strength.
To be clear, I’m undergoing proper medical treatment for this and not relying on these subs, but I’m hoping they’ll help with re-balancing my body and rebuilding my health, especially given some recent experiences. I also figured this would be a good opportunity to test these subs in a more demanding situation. I don’t know how frequently I’ll update this journal at this point, maybe weekly.
I’m using the experimental listening pattern outlined here. During the week I’ll run masked through headphones at work for about 12 hours per day only. During weekends it’ll be ultrasonic for about 12 hours per day only. No listening during sleep. I’ll be running Spartan and QL ST1 in a 1:1 ratio for now, but I may change this once I get a feel for QL ST1. I’ll likley run ST1 until the end of the year since it focuses on re-balancing.
