What do you think of Ream’s Biological Theory of Ionization?
Do you know of any good approaches to conquering depression/bipolar tendencies?
What’s your thoughts on the Gerson Therapy?
I’m a trainer and an endurance athlete. I follow a very primal nutrition plan. I add MCT oil and Coconut oil to whey protein isolate shakes. I have to use shakes a lot due to a very demanding, non stop schedule working with clients. Could you add grass-fed butter and MCT’s like you recommend in coffee to a whey shake?
Do you have recommended macro nutrient targets?
Any dietary prophylaxis to counteract the theoretical possibility of cardio-toxicity after ultra-marathon events?
I’ve tried Getting Things Done, Evernote and a whole bunch of other productivity tools, but I still come back to a paper diary.Is there a particular methodology you use for general productivity and tracking projects and tasks?
I realize this question only applies to an almost infinitesimally small percentage of the population, but how would the EmWave and other HeartMath effects work on people with artificial hearts?
What ratio of K2 to D3 do you recommend?
I agree that regular yeast is probably bad for you, but I have lately been buying Nutritional Yeast, and it tastes amazing added to smoothies, salads etc… Do you have any concerns with this product? Here is a link:
