On the surface a quilt seems a random collection of parts to make a comforter. That is what the undiscerning eye sees. But at its core, the assembled parts begin to act in unison to do something that no single part can do. In concert, Nature only uses the finest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry. These random musings are coming from future blogs in the Quilt. Enjoy!Continue Reading
Last Wednesday Jack was the guest on the Not Just Paleo podcast show and the recording is now up and ready for listening. During the podcast Jack discussed the food and light cycle of the planet, along with the importance of protecting against blue light. He also spoke about his meditation room and shared with the host, Evan, some biohacks that he can employ to speed up the recovery of his upcoming surgery. Those weren’t the only topics that were covered so be sure to listen for yourself. It’s definitely information that everyone can adopt to help them reach optimal health. To access the podcast visit: http://notjustpaleo.com/podcast-52-d…tion-biohacks/ And be sure to listen closely, there may be a special offer in there for you.Continue Reading
Over the past months, Jack’s been educating us on the three pillars of health: light, water and magnetism. For those who’ve heard the September and October webinars, Jack has given us additional information that build upon what he’s written in the blogs. But how do we bring it all together? The Quantum Health Model will help bring it all together.Continue Reading
If diet and lifestyle changes, supplementation or BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy) haven’t taken you to optimal, listen to the replay of this community-wide introduction to Healing Your Hormones with Dr. Tim Jackson!Continue Reading
If you have a documented deficiency of a vitamin or mineral, it would only make sense to replace that nutrient. If you have less than optimal hormone levels, it is becoming ‘in vogue’ to supplement or replace that hormone as well. But with hormone deficiencies showing up at increasingly earlier ages, at what point do we draw the line and investigate alternatives?Continue Reading
Today, we begin to examine levee’s 6, 14, and 26 in the Quilt document for the first time. We begin to show examples of these levee’s by examining how the human brain forms and functions in an infant. This example will act as an analogy to help us understand many other processes as the blog series rolls on.
There are many countervailing influences in life that on the surface confuse our intellect. They create the appearance of paradox, enigma, and myths, and mysteries. I find when we look at the world through the hull of a glass-bottom ship, to look through a kaleidoscope at the galaxies that exist on the edge of our mind, we begin to see the sense that nature makes from the chaos of the world. I like the irony that mysteries often create. Today, we are going to use some “other observations” we have all made to show you how the mysteries of our modern world might be solved asking better questions instead of settling for the answers we have been given.
The Human Infant
It is clear in modern medicine now that we can not have optimal human brain development unless we have a secure nutrient rich food supply for both mother and child. This relationship also needs to be maintained postnatally for several years after birth until neuralation is successful. It does appear in modern neurosurgery research that human brain development is programmed genetically to a certain extent, but is more malleable then we thought because of the new science findings of epigenetics. This is also more apparent in humans than other mammals because our brain is so complex that even small changes in functional regions can lead to massive clinical changes that become apparent as the child develops. Autism and spectrum disorders are a good example of this phenomena.Continue Reading
How important is time really to life?
Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is time.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is running! Make the most of today.
To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed a grade. To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one week, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who just missed a train. To realize the value of one second, ask someone who just avoided an accident. To realize the value of one millisecond, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.Continue Reading
Two years ago I gave you the Hormone 101: Clinical thoughts revealed blog post. That was a small dose of reality at the beginning of this journey. There was some foundational hormone biochemistry there given to you in simple terms. Most people jumped all over the free T3 link to pregnenolone in the post. They thought that “their cure” for hypothyroidism and/or chronic pregnenolone steal syndrome was increasing free T3 or just lowering reverse T3 to raise pregnenolone. So what was not observed?
A trip down memory lane for the hormone cascade
Leptin resistance occurs first in the brain. Then insulin resistance happens soon their after in the liver, gut, and peripheral tissues. This eventually leads to adrenal resistance. This resistance occurs at the PVN in the brain. (Brain Gut 16: Adrenal Fatigue Rx) It does not happen in the adrenal gland. What happens is that the outflow from our sympathetic system in the brainstem overwhelms the parasympathetic nervous system. This increase in overall cortisol initially, is the stress hormone that allows for fight or flight syndrome (life or death). As this condition persists chronically over time, cortisol levels decrease and flatline on adrenal stress index testing.Continue Reading
It has been close toa year that we last did a CPC blog post. (CPC #5 The Leaky Gut/Adrenal Fatigue Case) CPC stands for a clinico-pathologic conference that we often see in medical schools that our used for teaching students and doctors.
Today we are going to talk about a disease that has perplexed medicine for hundreds of years. Pseudotumor cerebri is also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) today. It goes by many names in the literature. I have decided to discuss this disease because it highlights many of the cornerstone principles of how quantum electrodynamic theory affect water chemistry. This change in water chemistry can lead to biologic effects. The biologic effects of water can be seen in modern humans when we look for them and correctly observe what is really going on. So today we see how the macrocosm affects the microcosm of a modern disease.Continue Reading
Today, I am getting ready to do a podcast later tonight with Ben Greenfield and I have an idea of where it will head. Today’s blog is a head start for those of you who are interested.
Most humans are innately aware of the existence of fundamental laws of nature. These are the laws that define our material existence of our universe that we physically inhabit and that currently define our conscious existence. But what humans fail to realize is that how these laws, when singled out for dissection seem so contrary to our common sense. This series is slowly reminding you that the rules of life follow the physical laws who are their counterpart, even when your beliefs cause you to think otherwise. When you begin to explore the microcosm of our quantum reality you begin to see how the macrocosm is constructed and why things work in the fashion they do. It shows us at a deeper level, under all the subjectivity and paradox that life seems to hold, we can always find bedrock of objective and concrete rules to be a beacon for us to follow. They key, however, is knowing where to look for them. Scientific objectivity is derived directly from the unwavering and unchanging laws that govern physics. This allows us to feel secure in drawing inferences and conclusions we draw from them to build our world view beliefs upon. Today, we are beginning to realize in healthcare some of our beliefs have allowed us to stray far from the epistemologic foundation of the laws of physics.Continue Reading
Dr. Kruse has been talking about doing this webinar for a long time, and it’s finally here: The Sex Prescription! Over the course of the last two years, it’s inevitable that as people are considering their health and “what to do” to create Optimal health, the subject of sexual health comes up. We all want to know: Am I normal? Is there anything else I can be doing to create or enjoy a better sexual response? Are the health challenges I’m facing somehow linked to things like low libido? You’d be amazed at how pretty much every disease known to man is affected in some way by your sexuality. The more leptin resistant you are, the less “good” you are in bed. Pain in your legs, restless leg syndrome, acne and zits, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, all of it is affected by your body’s ability to form or experience a healthy sexual response. According to the latest research, human sexual behavior has changed over the last century, and it’s FASCINATING. We’re going to examine this research in light of the protocols on JackKruse.com and other theories on Quantum Biology. We’ll talk about hormones and brain chemistry, and how everything works together to create love, lust, attraction and long-term love. The […]Continue Reading
‘For any quadruped to get up on its hind legs in order to run is an insane thing to do. It’s plain ridiculous.’ – Owen Lovejoy
Today, we are going to talk about the one thing that really separates humans from all other mammals. We began to walk upright before we developed a big brain. It was our first defining evolutionary change from chimp to human. The reasons why our legs grew first is generally credited to our big brain needing a larger birth canal and causing changes in the genitourinary system. There is one big problem with this theory; We grew legs long before we developed a large complex brain. The brain did not drive bipedalism.
Many modern evolutionary biologist take upright walking for granted because they can do it easily so it appears a natural progression of evolutionary progress. Not even Darwin could explain this evolutionary jump. There has never been another change like it in the biologic record.
It might seem a poor topic for some, because many people have found it easy to explain in their own mind; After all, bipedalism did not strike the early evolutionists as a “difficult thing” to explain. When Darwin wrote ‘The Descent of Man’ he did not even bother to list it in his index. Fact check that. It is true. He choose to completely ignored it, because he could not explain it, and just thought going from all fours to two feet was natural for us! The sequence of events seemed clear enough at that time.Continue Reading
April Webinar: PPP–The Fat Burning Pathway (The BIG KAHUNA!!!) In his webinar, Dr. Kruse is going to explore how hormones, perimenopause, menopause and andropause are all tied to the quantum electrodynamic (QED) theory. You will be particularly interested in this webinar if: You’ve been on the road to optimal, and you’ve experienced “stalls” You’re a “lab hacker” – meaning, you have your labs done regularly, and you want to better-understand what you’re seeing in your own labs and how to continue optimizing your health You or someone you love has ever suffered from infertility If you feel like you’re doing “everything right,” but you’re not losing weight or sleeping as well as you think you can Your hormone panel isn’t budging, even with taking bioidentical hormones You’re a woman. Or a man. (I think that about covers it.) Dr. Kruse is going to really drill in to help us understand how to get into the PPP, including how to determine your total body water and total body water deficit to see how far out of the pathway you are (if you’ve been following along this year, you know we’ve focused particularly on water and semi-conduction and it’s […]Continue Reading
We have shared a lot of information in the EMF and Quantum Biology series. Today, we are going to tie some of these concepts together to give you a picture of what the causes of metabolic syndrome might really be. This disease is now a runaway neolithic disease over the last 20 years. The fact that close to 26% of the population is obese and T2D is now no longer just a disease of obese people should begin to get scientist asking better question of the real etiology of this condition. It really has not. They remain prisoners to old beliefs about the disease. What is clear today, when a person has the up to date current perspective of published biology, chemistry, and biology, is that all disciplines are connected deeply. Biology is the science of life, but it becomes one with physics, and the science of matter and its motion. We only seem to become aware of this situation while living our lives and becoming very observant of this synergy. Our living as sentient beings, makes us the real experts on the laws of real nature. Science is based upon observation of nature at its core. Evidence based medicine is far off this target today. This may help you understand why Metabolic Syndrome is a runaway disease today. In 2012, the US government spent 270 billion dollars on treatment for this one condition. 20 years ago it was around a billion dollars. Something has radically changed environmentally and it is not the 9 billion inhabitants genes on this planet that have adapted this quickly. Their epigenetic pressures however have, and this is the source of the medical bill we get. You need to begin to question much of what you believe about neolithic disease today. Today’s blog delves into deep connections of those disciplines to help you understand what confuses your doctors today. Metabolic Syndrome is being treated via a cookbook called evidence based medicine. Much of what we believe about this disease is based upon a house of cards.Continue Reading
Soon the EMF Rx will go live in our March 2013 webinar so in advance of it, I wanted to give the EMF FAQ’s for everyone to review before you listen to the webinar. I expect there to be many questions once the webinar is released. Hopefully this will answer many of the questions you might have as the series moves forward.
These may make a lot more sense once you listen to the EMF Rx in the webinar. They will really sink in after you hear our EMF expert that we are bringing on to the site for an extensive long term look at the different aspects that EMF causes in our modern world, but here is an appetizer of what is coming.Continue Reading
Who is Gretchen? She is a women I met at Mark’s Daily Apple monster thread two years ago. When we first met she wanted no part of the idea that maybe she was missing more pieces to the puzzle then she knew. I told her back then, if she began to test herself she would learn more about herself than she could ever imagine and it would happen fast. If you read the thread here, you will see where she began her journey. This blog is where her journey has brought her in her battle to reclaim optimal. She is also featured in my latest book on amazon, The Epi-Paleo Prescription and you can read her initial six months into this journey there with 3 other of my members. Gretchen has a blog too. She is a pretty amazing person with an amazing family and story.
Here is how her journey began as written and told by award winning author Colleen Coble in my book:
Gretchen stared at the piece of paper in her hand. The word medically discharged wavered in her vision, and she wheezed through the airways constricted by asthma. Her head was pounding, and her heart rate fluttered even faster than the pulse of pain in her head. It was the end of her military career. Even though she’d known it was coming, seeing it in black and white made her want to sink to the floor and bury her head in her head in her hands.Continue Reading
How can the events in space and time which take place within the spacial boundary of a living organism be accounted for by physics and chemistry? —Erwin Schrodinger
How osteoporosis made me understand this complexity
In our modern world physics continues to make in roads into the organic domains of life. It now places emphasis on non linear phenomena removed from equilibrium, based upon quantum coherence and cooperativity, which are the hallmarks of the biologic domain.
It is the enigmas, the mysteries and paradoxes of life, that take hold of the imagination, leading it on the most exquisite dance. The quantum dance of life.
Osteoporosis, for me, was the first and best example to explain to you the basics of human quantum biology. My observations from my clinic were pretty obvious over a 10 year span. It seemed everyone had some level of the disease if we looked for it. No one was normal on their MRI or blood chemistry work ups in my clinic, and I wanted to know, was Wolff’s law null and void for some reason in our modern world?Continue Reading
Today’s blog is not long on science. Consider it my Valentine’s day present for you. It is long on observations made on humans and animals and EMF’s. Most of the observations have been done by Russians and described in their literature. One human experiment done on US foreign soil will be eye opening to you. What EMF does to cells directly is it causes a massive stress response that simulates leptin resistance, a heart attack or a panic attack.
It can affect plants too. The sensations are present while often the labs are completely normal and your doctor remains stumped as you sit in the ER. As time elapses the labs become trashed because the molecular clock no longer is able to work precisely but by that time you are closer to Michael Jackson’s fate than a reversal of health.
There are many forces at play to keep this information from you. If you were to understand its full power the economy of the world would likely collapse. This is why this info is systematically kept from you.Continue Reading
Today EMF-4 is going to hit a very controversial topic. Why do the younger performers perceive they need carbs for performance? For years, I have said loudly, I don’t believe it is true. Over the last 7 years I have begun to understand why their belief exists now. When you suffer from a disrupted circadian clock you perceive you do need carbs.
It has been shown recently that artificial EMF’s make our blood brain barrier and gut more permeable to carbohydrates. The micropulsations of EMF control biocycles, including the timing of mitotic rhythm and the entire cell cycle. Any major change in their frequency would be catastrophic for cells. In fact, today most of the paleo-sphere is unaware that experiments already have been done that have shown that vibrational rates near normal and slightly above the Schumann resonance, from 30-100 Hz, cause dramatic changes in the cell cycle timing.
It turns out, the most powerful shaper of our development may turn out to be the subtlest force, that is completely invisible to us and perturbs the manner in which we handle macronutrients and recycle ATP.Continue Reading
“If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor.” —Einstein
The implications of the last blog, EMF 2 are massive for biology. Those two space experiments show us that time contractions when we lose the sensation of magnetism, and it dilates when we increase it. This implies we can die faster or reverse disease if we understand how it affects us. With this knowledge I knew I could help reverse many neolithic diseases. But it dawned on me on the plane ride home it also might explain how life really began in our oceans.
The irony here, is two days before, I was standing in Rome in the Sistine Chapel showing my son the center panel of Michelangelo’s masterpiece ceiling. It was then I realized I might want to know God’s thoughts. I want to know God’s thoughts in a biologic way……..and the path to that way used an alphabet called evolution.Continue Reading
