Questions, ordinary questions make you look for an answer. An answer that shuts down the looking.
Other questions, like the question in the title make you look… But the answer… oh, the answer creates an even bigger opening… it is like the abyss opened up in front of your feet… Fill your heart with dread.
And that is what was the purpose of the question… to open up the abyss…
With regards to your health, what you eat is important. We all know that. We have heard it a thousand times. We also heard to eat a good breakfast, a light supper… blah blah blah.
But when you eat, what environment you eat in, and how you eat what you eat seems to be as important, or maybe even more important than what you eat.
I just bought and watched two videos on “how to eat according to your type” or the style of eating that seems to be crucial for a sense of well-being, especially for brain health. I have known my own “style” of eating for a while, and it has made a big difference. Most people in the world eat stews, or meats with side dishes, or salads with a lot of ingredients, but a good 20% of the world, with the most ancient style DNA needs to eat like people ate when they didn’t have dishes: one thing at a time. Like a Neanderthal…
I have this most ancient DNA,
…seemingly no intermarriage, no mixing with other nationalities, or other groups. So I do best, my stomach, my digestion, my emotional well-being, when I just eat one-ingredient dishes. When I eat meat, I just eat meat. When I eat, let’s say, cabbage, I just eat cabbage. I am finding out that even just adding onions to the cabbage or to the meat makes me not that well… I can now feel it. Who would have thought it!
One thing per meal.
OK… fat, onions, and garlic go with anything, and it is still considered one food. I have been testing for, I don’t know, ten years?
As a child I felt it.
I would move the meat off the sandwich, I would remove the fruits from the cake, I would eat the sour cream meant to be used in a vegetable dish… I got punished. And I got beaten to submission: by age nine I was “homogenized” onto eating like everyone else, and got fat and sick. Unfortunately society, family frowns at you being an individual and having individual needs, no matter who you are, no matter how your family seems.
The second most ancient eating style, from digestion’s point of view is the style called “consecutive”… I have three clients like that: all got well when they started to eat one thing at a time, but they can eat 10 minutes later something else. I can’t.
No soups, no stews, no side dishes. No cookies, no bread, no chocolate, no candy, nothing with ingredients. In that regard she is like me. But she can eat her next one-thing ten minutes later, I have to wait at least one hour.
Once you get used to it, you’ll love it.
The styles are these:
Hot – Thirst – eat all food and beverages at body temperature or warmer…
Cold – Thirst – eat and drink cold food
Low – sound – only eat in low sound environment… Noise prevents you from developing an appetite
High – sound – only eat when the environment is noisy, TV, family, restaurant, or music on the ears.
Nervous – Touch – eat only when the environment, inner and outer, are busy… like family bustle. My hunch is that this “touch” is a sensory thing: your food needs to be chewy, but I might be wrong.
Calm – Touch – eat only when the environment, inner and outer, are calm
Alternating – Appetite – my diet. one ingredient dishes… separated by time
Consecutive – Appetite– my clients’ diet above
Direct – light – should eat only during the day
Indirect – light – should eat at night
Open – Taste… eat a varied diet chosen for their taste… If you like the food it is easier to have an appetite for it.
Closed – Taste… eat a monotonous diet, for most people it’s the staple diet of their ancestry, very different by seasons.
Should you eat meat? Fat? to feel satiated… if you violate this one, you’ll be always hungry
Should you eat filling stuff?
Should you eat sugar? and how…
I just did the whole testing work for a woman from my Over 60 exercise class. She is 80, lives alone, and her only complaint is wicked seasonal allergies.
I give away at least one product or service every month, so I quickly muscle tested her before the class started, and the muscle test says that she eats the wrong foods, and she eats the wrong way.
I offered my services and she accepted.
When you have an 80 year old woman, you don’t know what to expect.
This 80 year old woman is a lot healthier than most of my clients were when they first came to me. But…
The test showed that she can eat any protein other than fish and milk products, as long she doesn’t eat it twice within a week.
She has been eating exclusively fish.
The test showed that she can eat any grain as long as she doesn’t repeat it within a week. Same with all the vegetables.
And she can’t eat any fruits, not even lemons…
She was so happy. She immediately found examples in her family for people who got better once they stopped eating fish.
This was probably the most rewarding health session I have ever had.
A full health evaluation session is normally $250, and you need to commit to a follow-up session as well.
But because the part regarding the eating styles is in experimental stage… at least in my practice, has been around and proven effective for the clients of “The Human Design Primary Health System” consultants.
I paid $97 for my report 10 or so years ago. I have seen prices starting at $55… They use the Human Design “science” that I myself am not trained in, even though I have studied it, but I don’t have complete confidence in.
The eating style report I got has proven not accurate… It diagnosed me as a one thing per mouthful… but allowed me to eat another thing next mouthful. Turned out: I am really best when I eat one thing per meal… with some elements added, like fat, salt, onions or garlic… that seem to integrate with almost any food.
To the degree I eat that way, to the same degree I am slim, energetic, painless, and coherent. It is not easy, but it’s worth it.
But you can get it for 30 bucks… if…
If you want me to test you for the style, THERE ARE 12, plus the three what questions… for the styles that are best for your body, you can ask me to measure you.
I need to be able to connect to you.
The process is the same as with the Starting Point Measurements: I need a picture and I need your date of birth. The full date. No hour is necessary.
“I am curious… please measure me for my eating style or styles. I’d like to experience eating according to my style and be well, energetic, coherent, and clearheaded… Wow… What would that be like?” Yeah, you are curious? Here is the button to order…
PS: There is another way to categorize your eating style: the style of the dog and the cat… I probably would be the squirrel… lol.
Everyone wants to be smarter, or if it is too much to ask: wants to look smart.
But why? Because of what? To what end? What would smart get you?
For some people it would help them produce results in whatever they are doing… For others it would get the promise, the mirage of being able to produce results… and they hope that they won’t need to actually produce anything.
Because you only get your rewards, with actual results. In a normal world, in a world where people act rationally. Obviously we don’t quite live in a normal world…
Very few people do what it takes to become someone who can produce.
Why do I fight positive thinking, why am I trashing it?
This morning I got to a realization: the students that are not making strides, not moving higher on the evolutionary scale are the students that are confusing “there is nothing wrong in reality” with positive thinking.
Positive thinking says: avoid negativity. Turn your back to it. Make up something nice to say about things you don’t like, don’t want.
The French has a saying: The more things change the more things remain the same.
Nature or nurture is a big question, even though, in the big picture, it won’t matter.
What is part of nature can be changed. In fact it is being changed effectively all the time.
What is part of nurture is harder to change, but it’s possible. It just takes more work.
Just the opposite of what you thought, right?
I am a good example for nature being changed: I got smarter than when I started, smarter than my siblings and my parents… through application. High achievers in the world are mostly of this type: born with little or average, worked harder, accomplished more than what they would get if they didn’t grow what they earned.
It’s all invented, it is all some rules or some laws to make sense of what cannot make sense… life, the Universe, this whole thing we were born into.
For a while it makes sense… while the parents and the family surround you, but once you are on your own, once what you do matters beyond the rules of the family, life doesn’t make much sense.
The ego, the part of a human that wants you to be safe, is not comfortable with uncertainty, with not knowing. It is only comfortable when the rules are clear, they work every time, and you know that if you do A you’ll get B.
You look around. Everyone seems to have it better than you. They laugh, they hug, they walk hand in hand, kiss… or have friends who like them… but you? If feels like you have no one, no one cares about you, no one responds well to you… You are not getting enough “strokes”… from others.
A “stroke” (in Transactional Analysis) is a unit of social transaction. A hug. A nod. A smile. A hello, a thank you, a “how are you?”, or an f… you…. these are all social transactions. The more strokes you get the less your spine will shrivel up on you…
