Finding the the cause, not masking the symptoms
Feeling stuck :/
Imagine this. Feeling like your energy and life force is being drain out of you. You can’t seem to do your daily activities. Your thinking becomes slow. You feel like a 90 year old person.
You go to the 10 doctors and medical specialists, and they all say you in perfect health. You start to doubt your sanity.
My Current Symptoms
Fluctuation. These symptoms seem to change at different times of the day/ week. Which makes it really strange to me. Not being able to plan my week. I can’t seem to find correlations when tracking. last update 8may2021
- Onsen, heat stress
- Cracking of back, neck hips
- coffee+ sugar
- Deep breathing
- Chi nei zhang
Unable to relax. Feel the urge to crack back and neck. 1st day of BCSS wanted to crack 1000 times,
Breathing does not feel automatic. Worsens: When Standing
Improves: Upon waking. Could bloating impede my breathing.
Loose stool, or explosive diarrhoea. Smelly. looks bad.
Worsens: coconut oil (C6 chain)
Improves: High carb diet. Reduce snacking. Intermittent fasting. Feb 2019, after sibo diet, carnivour for 1 week, coffee enema, enzymes + probiotics+ fermented food, I would consider it solved. Mar21, it came back 1 sec poop. black, inconsistent.
Post exertion malaise
Will regret any strenuous activities. Last Sept 2018, installed digital lock, rock climbing, meeting for 30min with client, exhausted for 1 month. Feb 2019 update, Hiking up tree top walk success, cycling 40km success, walking labrador and macrictche seems to be quite tough. Why does it seem like walking and standing is harder than higher intensity activities?
Standing will zap my energy. Strangely walking, jogging would usually be better than just standing. Last episode mid nov 2018. Went for a client meeting doc, resting HR 100-120, HRV stressed, oxy 94. seated at cafe for discussion

Causes of Sickness
Underlying cause rather than symptom management
Diagnose with TB 2016.
Yes, a full size fridge next to my bed brewing bacteria. Mostly offed. Got it cause i was hungry all the time. Bacteria infested. Yukes. It was a used fridge passed from another home to my kitchen then my bedroom.
Green and black. 20 years of germ breeding. nourished by rain and condensation from the cold.
1000+ pills of strong antibiotics. Certainly not good for your microbiome or your liver.
Eating Mcdonalds all the time. Chucking coffee. Sugary drinks. High carb load with extra rice or pasta each meal. In school, I will be drinking hot coffee from a melted plastic bottle
2015 food poisoning, partial cooked pork patty. Chronic diarrhoea.
Stool analysis 102017 shows : Enterobacter cloacae complex. Klebsiella pneumoniae ssp pneumoniae. Exophiala dermatitidis. Candida albicans
“I must not let any moment be wasted” I had this philosophy. President/ Chair of almost all my CCAs. Took extra modules. worked 25 jobs in 25 years. Yes, almost every holiday. Physically incinerated myself to the ground. DIdn’t give myself a chance to rest.
Being an avid traveller, I have travelled to Europe and South East Asia. Including:
Slums in Phillipines, Cambodia, Visiting homeless people in UK
Read too much dark philosophy on the meaning and purpose of life. Studied politics which is about power and horrible wars.
Poor Lymphatic/ blood flow? Trapped Cerebral Spinal Fluid?
When I lie down at certain positions, somethings, i feel like fluid is being drained. I feel significantly better after that. It’s like the “close all apps” button being pressed.
At my C5 C6 C7, a choke point of my CSF might be possible, especially when inflamed and bad position
Since cracking/ decompressing my back seems to do wonders at time, I think nerve blockage might be a potential cause despite doctors saying otherwise.
Flat feet, slouching back, looking at notes, books and phones.
Syrinx at C5,6,7 Disc degeneration c5c6c7t12l1l5s1
Broke my mind
Rock climbing is a mental discipline. Shaking and trembling occurs due to built in fear response. I kept pushing my body and mind way past its limits. Pure exhaustion, stress and deep survival life and death moments.
