Diet health bomb, no survivors – (Ideal in times of misery and [di]stress)

Heathy gut biome (and diet in general) is the root, the key, to overall health. Especially important in times of misery like recently.
I present to you the latest optimization of my daily or every-other-day (what’s the word for that?) drink:

That’s self-fermented kefir with pure cocoa and sweetened with erythritol.
(500 ml kefir, 1 daringly heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder, 3 level teaspoons of erithritol)


Real kefir is nothing like that Kalinka stuff in the supermarket which is labeled “mild”. (Same system with yoghurt mild. – Made with starter powder consisting of a more or less meager microbiome.)
– Let it ferment for a long time (until the milk components start separating) and there will be almost no lactose left.
– You can optionally use…
— goat milk (no casein, although allegedly that’s a lot less with grass fed animals)
— grass fed (the animal’s food reflects in its products)
— high fat milk (complements the low-carb nature of this drink and tends to dissuade the body from converting protein into sugar due to lack of other energy sources)
— ESL or fresh instead of superheated (But if you choose no-homo*, the cream might create a smeary film on everything – a hassle. I personally prefer organic grass-fed 3.8% ESL homogenized cow milk.)
— organic / non-GMO

Instant cocoa drink powder is mainly just glucose and most of the rest is other sugar, i.e. extremely fast sugar, causing insulin spike which is the root of so many problems. (Industry-pushed addiction mechanism.)
Pure cocoa means almost all the weight is actually cocoa. It is very rich in antioxidants and minerals (especially zinc which is crucial for a strong immune system) and supports the generating of happy- and sleep hormones.
It is also surprisingly rich in fiber, which helps with the fact that kefir doesn’t have any. (Alternatively you could add a bit of psyllium husks for that.)
Cocoa has lots of fat and protein and only moderate carbs of which almost none are sugar. (Kefir itself is kinda even in those three, and the longer you ferment, the less of the quick lactose will be in it.)

Erythritol is one of the few sugar alcohols that do not cause an insulin response at all, i.e. not only is it not sugar, but it also has virtually no calories. I am using one that has a tiny bit of stevia in it (also virtually no carb) in order to bring its sweetening power up to sucrose (table sugar). (Stevia alone has a bitter-ish aftertaste.)
Xylitol would be a taste alternative without erythritol’s cooling effect (mostly pure on the tongue only), but it has an insulin effect – roughly 40% of sucrose I think, so kinda defeating the low-carb purpose a bit.
But maybe you can adjust your taste buds and don’t need sweetener at all. I only added it ‘for science’, and it tastes nice, but I can also enjoy it without. The kefir buffers the cocoa’s mild bitterness nicely.
Don’t overdo erythritol. Some people might get diarrhea from it, although less so than with other sugar alcohols. (Then again, that’s not always bad, and drinking kefir for the first time might trigger it, too, because your body can finally get rid of some baggage. – Then you need good renutrition. Same as after a period. It’s always a loss of resources.)

DISCLAIMER (sigh): This is not professional health advice. (duh) – For that you have to try to find a doctor who is competent.


Special thanks to Dr. Eric Berg on Youtube (who is only a doctor in chiropractics) who I now consider my general practitioner (paired with my own gumption) after repeated disappointments with local doctors and the healthcare system in general. – Why am I paying so much money for it?

Eine überschätzte Doku

Ich kopiere einfach mal meinen Kommentar hier rein. So viel ‘Cringe’ in einem Video hab ich schon lange nicht mehr erlebt, und in so einem massiven Meta-Kontext.

1:35 Exakt die Zahl da? Ich glaube eher nicht. Unwissenschaftlich. Ist doch eine exakte Maßeinheit.
6:18 “Sind sie allein, oder einfach nur unbedeutend?” – Wieder mal ne Möglichkeit ausgelassen. Zu hoch für den kleinen ‘rationalen’ Verstand. 😏
12:19 “ganz objektiv gesehen … unbedeutend” – Und noch ein Indiz, daß diese Dokumentation einfach nur eine Antithese glorifiziert. – Unbedeutend? Wie nahe sind denn andere Arten daran, sowas wie ein Video im Internet zu publizieren oder Atomwaffen zu bauen? Ist das nicht das Ergebnis eines Sieges in einem System, das sich durch Artenkampf weiterentwickelt? Der Mensch hat sich quasi wie jeder kleinster Organismus per Überlebenstrieb bis zu Spitze hochgearbeitet. Kann man werten, wie man will, aber objektiv ist der Mensch damit sehr bedeutend. Aber die Angst vor Überheblichkeit kann dumm machen.
13:05 “dreimal weniger” Autsch. 😖 Gruselt mich jedesmal, wenn ich sowas höre, besonders im wissenschaftlichen Kontext. Sprache als Abbild des Verstandes.
15:02 Das Vakuum des Weltraums und diverse andere genannte Bedingungen nur in verkapselter Form! Schlechte Animationswahl.
18:30 “der einzige, der seine Intellgenz entwickelt hat” – Schon wieder so eine Idiotenformulierung. 🤦 Wie entwickelt man denn seine eigene Intelligenz verglichen zu dem, was alle anderen Lebensformen machen?
20:53 “Schwacher Abklatsch”, huh? Bei näherer Betrachtung. Nicht vielleicht eine radikale Weiterentwicklung und Verknüpfung mit vielem anderen? Wenn ich noch einmal den Spruch mit dem “unbedeutend” höre, klassifiziere ich das Video als selbstverspottende Komödie mit unabsichtlichem Metacharakter.
24:05 Der Mensch zeichnet sich nicht durch Intelligenz aus? … Ja, die Macher dieses Videos definitiv nicht. Auch dadurch ausgedrückt, wie sie nur von sich selbst generalisierend auf andere schließen können. – Die Summe aller Errungenschaften wird einfach ignoriert und stattdessen wird kdurch ein Astloch geguckt.
28:15 🤦 Totale selbstkasteiende, moralisierende Öko-Hybris, die vergleichbare Prozesse nicht bei anderen Tieren sieht. Tierarten haben sich schon immer durch Konsumboost und Verdrängung gegenseitig ausgelöscht.

Dieses Video ist wie eine künstlerische Darstellung davon, wenn ein sehr dummer Mensch besser die Finger von LSD gelassen hätte.

Außerdem ein massiver Wdierspruch: Wenn der Mensch so unbedeutend ist, dann gibts ja auch keinen Grund für uns, Umweltschutz zu betreiben. Macht ja eh keinen relevanten Unterschied. Wir sind ja so schwach und machtlos. Außer wenn es darum geht, wie böse wir sind, dann sind wir plötzlich ohne Gleichen.

Unconditional love is…

Unconditional love is like the love a writer has for their characters. One character might be a villain, or a rude asshole, but they love them anyway, since they enjoy their creation. They are essential pieces in great storytelling.
This is why people usually only experience this unconditional love when they manage to connect to the divine. Because they’re totally not used to it due to lack of exposure, since so few people practice it. But the divine is all about enjoying its creation in its totality. It does nothing but love unconditionally, and that is enough to bring things into existence. It doesn’t play favorites; That’s why anything can happen.

Man says: “Why is this allowed to happen?”
God says: “Why not?”
Man says: “People are suffering.”
God says: “How could it be any other way?”
Man says: “No suffering. Everybody happy.”
God says: “You will get there. Why so impatient?”
Man says: “I don’t want to suffer anymore.”
God says: “Then I cannot allow you to happen.”

Suffering ends when you realize you are one with God. But that can only happen if you accept your separation from God.
Which means loving life unconditionally.
You accept the separation and it allows you to do that, and doing that confirms the unity.

Life: This is madness

Thesis: The universe is infinite.
Proof: self-evident. Our mind cannot comprehend infinity and we haven’t found the end of the universe, and deep within we know we can’t, because if we find its end, by definition there must be something beyond it, otherwise the whole game just continues as before. Infinitely.

Followup thesis: You do not exist.
Evidence: Nothing exists.
Proof: Something finite cannot exist in something infinite. Something finite in something infinite would have to be infinitely small, and infinitely small is still infinite; a concept based on infinity.

Conclusion: The only way you can exist is if you are infinite. And then you are everything and/or nothing. The former defies your definition as an existing entity, the latter means you do not exist.

We try to deny infinity the best we can by ignoring it most of the time, but it is omnipresent part of our experience.
Infinity is the almighty overwhelming power that can humble our ego by showing us our nonexistence.

Who dares to look?

It does not matter. You are looking all the time anyway.
