The MTHFR Gene Games

Updated: May 24

I will start this tale of GMO woe with some background about myself, just to frame some context and geography in relation to where in the world circa 1964 that franken-foods have been a problem and go deeper into it from there as I peel back the onion on this matter, so to speak.

Just follow along as there is a point to all this background noise.

I started playing chess at 3 years old and was a child chess playing prodigy of sorts that lasted until I was about 12 years old.

While I lived in South Africa I had near zero problems with the grains, crops and meat that was available to the public at large in South Africa.

On occasion I did notice if I ate fresh red beef bought from the local butcher store that my gums would hurt from the preservative South Africa used to make the meat look red longer.

It was some sort of salt based concoction that gave my gums a lot of problems.

Animals butchered at the farm itself which did not get this preservative treatment did not give my gums any issues at all.

At the time I turned 12, my father moved my brother and I with his British expat new wife from South Africa to Liverpool in England where she came from and I turned my mind to a raft of sports and general athletics in place of chess mainly because I had no real challengers player wise to rival my ability at that time.

This actually got me a stigma similar to my Prof nickname at Boarding school in South Africa so I dumbed down on that shit quite a bit and focused on my sports instead.

I got back into chess years later literally by accident after I flew my Polish PW-5 glider into a tree in Lake County in 2002 which left me with horrendous injury gifts I had to recover from after induced coma games by my Santa Rosa Hospital surgeons to reduce brain swelling and prevent organ shutdown et al.

So anyways, fast forward to about a year ago when I started to notice that I had slowly been witness to a few urinary issues with flow, color and pressure problems that I had ignored until one day in January of 2024 I had the urge but nuthing much was actually happening.

This sort of thang makes you pay attention to your body and basic needs PDQ.

I also felt very sick and like I had a UTI as I had a mild burning sensation when passing what urine would run - I was not a happy or well bunny and it had seemingly arrived without warning but I had in fact just ignored all the warning signs!

When pee does go dark and smelly, immediately drink lots of water type remedy et al...Simple stuff if you actually do it and I am a legendary over-analysis ditherer need to react fast with these things...

She who must be obeyed packed me off to emergency clinical care where they tested for an infection but it came up clean and they pronounced I likely had prostate problems.

On the balance this all seemed justifiably likely from a stats point of view, but they were wrong.

I started drinking a lot of water to mitigate but just felt bloated and uncomfortable and the pain grew worse so I went to see a urologist at the behest of she who must be obeyed.

Said urologist hack outfit based in Concord, CA lied and pronounced I had prostate problems that needed surgery.

I guffawed loudly at this crap as I had still not seen the urologist, just his many nurses and they scheduled me for a full flow test at some point 6 weeks down the line after telling me to take some witch doctor bullshit potion called flowmax.

I know a lot of old folks and all bar one pronounced flowmax as hocus pocus bullshit potion and to be very careful about what the witch doctors were prescribing as surgery had a no return to sanity or normalcy point.

For reasons I cannot get into here I knew for a fact my prostate was unlikely to be the cause but went through the motions anyways just in case it was.

I also booked an ultrasound scan at John Muir and the nurse cleared the prostate within a minute and focused on both kidneys for a long time instead.

She found what they call a parapelvic cyst at the pole of my left kidney!

Surgery saved there! I swiftly added the Urologist outfit to the long list of Mickey Mouse medical outfits and quacks I have encountered in my life to date.

It is now a very, very long list by the way...

In tandem I suspected the omega 3 fish oil supplements I had taken at the same time this became a problem as a potential source of the problems and I was right!

Some of the folks I worked with at Chiron Corp in Emeryville are connected to all sorts of research scientist types and apparently most Omega 3 fish oils sold are rancid and toxic.

The stuff I had was tested and I was told if I took those that things were going to be bad and I have decided to stick with actually eating fish for the pleasure of their omega 3 content.

While getting back into chess I noticed quite a few interesting things about nutrition and the human body I had already amassed when I myself was an active athlete and my experiences helping folks like Greg Albertyn become world motocross champion and Laurenco Brazil winning Mr Universe for the over 40 body builders etc. gave me some chops when it came to the subject of building a diet for World Champions.

I already knew a lot about nutrition before I took aim at brain function while I played around with various foods and supplements to counter this maddening to me issue that was blocking my greater ambitions on the chess board.

Although my brain finally got to be working real swell from the 2017 era onward, my gut was another thing entirely to get to the bottom of (puns intended).

My sweet tooth is largely to blame for this dire state of affairs however, as I have concluded that sugars are your enemy by and large for a vast number of very complex biology and chemistry realities in terms of how each individual metabolism does its thang in your body.

The thing with the sweet tooth associated cravings is that cane sugar is way healthier than the myriad of so called "non fat" sweeteners in use in alleged zero calorie foods and beverages touted universally for weight loss use but cane sugar is still not your health buddy.

If you have a choice though, natural cane sugar is always far better than what any artificial sweeteners are.

In fact ALL artificial sweeteners are serious poisons to the average homo-sapien on planet Earth and I would ban the lot of them if I had my way.

I have in fact concluded that sweet tooth cravings are likely due to electrolyte deficiencies and imbalances in the body as I often have to get a bottle of pedialyte to sort out my gut on the odd occasion it tips wildly out of balance, which is around 3 times a year depending on how much golf ball smacking I do down at the range and how hot it is when smacking the old featherie.

Cane sugar is way more healthier than what these artificial sweeteners are though but you have to have strict discipline using stuff made with cane sugars as overdosing with cane sugar has a strong negative downer effect on your body.

Drink a large bumper can of red bull to see the effect on you 6 hours later if you do not believe me.

I have conclusively proven to myself that said myriad of artificial sweeteners are far more dangerous than plain old cane sugars and are also nasty triggers for many cancers in many people to boot.

I had noticed while immersed in this dietary dabbling of mine that Methylfolated B complex + products impacted mood as well as gut health in a positive manner but I did not really come to any conclusive aha moment revelations on the subject other than it made my dark moods go away pretty emphatically and is why I carried on using methylfolated B12.

The gut benefits from Methylfolated B12 did not last long and some of these various B12 products actually sent it south again after my body got used to them.

However, 7 years ago I started recording bowel movements and my diet to try track and correlate some things as to finding a way to optimum gut health while retaining the awesome brain function while I was at it.

This was because eating different things on different days caused different symptoms that were most confusing to analyze indeed.

One day eating white bread did nothing, three days later it was dire cramping and diarrhea again.

This shit made no sense which is why it has taken me so long to get to the bottom of it all (puns intended).

I was never able to keep the train on the track with the gut due to the inconclusive results from eating different things and cycled through great bowel situations to very bad ones based on my intake of sweet stuff like cookies and scones but I do try to use gluten free stuff as much as possible these days.

The real culprit for me though was white breads, both sliced and baked loaf types which I have a real hankering and craving for if I smell them while they bake.

I have found a great many of these breads are not gluten free at all and I have also discovered that the sorts of breads used by places selling hamburger buns is actually the worst culprit of all for my well picky gut.

With these various breads such as French Bread or San Francisco Sour Dough loafs, it is mere minutes to incredibly sharp gut pains after I start nibbling the sweet smelling bastards.

This gut pain when it happens, it must be said, is fairly debilitating to deal with.

It is only now with 7 years of data that I recorded meticulously that I can make some better calls on what is going on with my body and it's general nutritional needs.

I finally kind of stumbled onto the fact my gut issues are due to what biologists call the MotherFucker (MTHFR) gene mutation or deficiency problem in the late December of 2023.

This MTHFR gene mutation issue affects between 44 to 60% of people in the US general population and is actually a pretty huge motherfucking problem!

There are around 40 mutations in the MTHFR gene identified in people with homocystinuria, which is a disorder in which the body is unable to process homocystiene and methionine properly.

This motherfucker gene provides the body with instructions for making an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase.

This enzyme plays a critical role in processing amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins in the body.

This reductase is important for a chemical reaction involving the vitamin folate known as B9.

Specifically, this enzyme converts a form of folate called 5-10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to a different form of folate called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate which is the primary hydrofolate found in the blood and is necessary for the multi-step process that converts the amino acid homocysteine into another amino acid called methionine.

The body uses methionine to make proteins and other vital compounds your body needs.

One of the symptoms of MTHFR deficiency is that after eating things like peas your body will not process said peas - peas go in gob and peas come out ass as black shitball peas, but the body has not broken them down at all.

On Jan 2, 2024, I started a new protocol but had to reset with fresh aminos and vitamin supplements. On Jan 11th we did the great pea test and my body has actually processed said peas!

So the good news is that this is actually real easy and inexpensive to fix and has been confirmed as real!

So you will also need to change your eating habits as a life long habit to cure said Motherfucker gene mutation deficiency problems and start thinking of and considering food as actual medicine, as in ALL food that goes into your gob.

I have killed all white bread, white flour and GMO based products as much as I can and am using the Gluten free GMO free stuff now to great success, so it can be done!

This motherfucker issue is in fact caused by the US food growing and processing industry spraying folic acid on just about all produce used to make various breads and cereals plus all the Bio Engineering and so called fortified crap they sell us to consume.

Anybody who challenges these facts is simply uneducated and there are plenty who do challenge it.

Remember what goes into your gob comes out your ass with all the consequences of what you eat in terms of what it does to your body and how your body reacts to what you feed it with.

We are not all the same however, and skin, tissue and muscle types found in humans along with blood type makes a huge impact to your health that forms a complex solution based on what nature gave you to live and deal with.

Folic acid, by the way is your overall no 1 enemy, in fact a far bigger enemy than what sugar and gluten is and is the main reason I suspect, why 44-60% of us have MTHFR deficiency issues in the first fucking place.

If you know what a woman is, when she gets pregnant, her body is in need of folic acid. This is the only time a human female requires folic acid in her diet.

For the rest of us, this bizarre practice is poisoning our bodies by producing food we cannot get nutrients from.

Do not confuse folic acid with folates though, your body needs folates, just not folic acid.

Lots of uneducated morons will argue folic acid is folate, but it ain't!

This is like arguing you can pour gasoline into a diesel engine because both gasoline and diesel come from the same oil barrel full of hydrocarbons.

Try it and see how quick you wreck the diesel engine.

Many doctors are morons when it comes to biology and chemistry by the way and they say folic acid is the same as folates, further underlining their ignorance of bio-chemistry somewhat.

In the US, all wheat, barley, rice and corn (plus almost everything that is GMO bio-enhanced) is sprayed with folic acid which in turn triggers huge problems in said 44-60% of people consuming said folic acid drenched food products.

Many people, myself included, incorrectly concluded that we were having food allergy problems of some kind but it was actually due to this fortified foods via folic acid bullshit practice from the people growing our food that produces a product your body just cannot absorb.

I already discovered via observing results from what I ate the violent stomach cramps that resulted from the wrong things I ate which dictated I consume gluten free stuff to alleviate said gut and ass issues but as articulated, I did not know exactly why this was so and I did not get the same results consistently.

I want to share that I lived a good span of time in South Africa and the U.K and I never had these sorts of issues while living in either of these places compared to what I encountered here in the USA circa 1995.

This is because bio-hacking outside of the US by Montsanto was not then as big of a problem as it is here in the USA.

My reaction to US fructose corn syrup based processed foods was also violent and I quickly cut sugary stuff and milk out of my diet as much as I could when I moved here permanently in 1998.

No more sugar in coffee or tea and only a dash of natural local honey when I did get into various teas has been my mantra since 1998.

I also stopped drinking all US based sodas as the fructose corn syrup in that shit literally turns me into a walking shit bomb.

I concluded pdq that fructose corn syrup is likely the sole culprit for bad shit like obesity from ingredients found in the sodas made in the USA, but this diagnosis was over-simplistic on my part, I only had part of the problem diagnosed.

It was a big part of the problem for sure, but it was not the only problem I was facing with my diet and the domino effect consequences thereof.

Fructose corn syrup is of course the ultimate food evil and should be banned outright, along with all the artificial sweeteners in use by food manufacturers in the USA at the moment and also definitely the folic acid they spray on all this bio-engineered GMO crap they grow in the USA these days.

One of the issues with MTHFR gene deficiency problems is you need to get your doctor to have you tested for this to get a positive ID of this issue completely verified.

You can get an independent test for $599 from or several other specialist nutrition sites on the interwebs thang but that is a lot of cash that your health insurance should really be paying for.

In fact, it boggles my mind that they do not make this mandatory as it is my humble opinion that the raft of ADHD, attention deficit disorders, crohns disease and the vast number of irritable bowel problems et al and a myriad of diabetic problems and the consequences they bring with the associated costs to the medical insurance business would save them trillions of dollars by attacking just this sole issue properly.

Before I even stumbled onto theultimatehuman web site and associated podcasts, I had already verified for myself what causes and effects various foods and vitamins had on me and how to avoid them as well as the success of finding what optimal brain fuel for my brain was.

I also discovered that grass fed meat had a huge impact on my body and I did way better when eating meat that was grass fed when living.

This is all part of the chain of domino effect consequences care of Monsanto and co who are now owned by Bayer corp.

I have consulted with many biologists and chemists who all tell me those making the online claim that GMO tweaking is harmful to humans is a "Myth" is a very perplexing thing to tarry over like a bulldog for them, as they state they have ample proof that Monsanto is indeed the root of most health evils homo sapiens are suffering from in the USA via their franken food GMO fortified with folic acid crap.

I have proven it to myself with blood tests and strict Organic produce use in various tests I have subjected myself to and the conclusions are incontrovertible.

All GMO franken foods are big, bad fucking news for most of us humans.

Piecing it all together though, needed some help from other folks and I have been fortunate to have had many people helping me in my journey and quest so solve these issues for myself and others in the same boat along the way.

I also found that hydration is also a key factor in optimal health and another thing I was shy of doing right due to the purity of water issues I found outside of South Africa and Australia circa 1989.

The first thing I did when I arrived in California was test Contra Costa water supplies and the results were deeply shocking.

In fact, I am still stunned how bad water quality in the USA is and have also identified that the fluorides they put into water in the USA and Europe also has very bad health domino effects for homo sapiens at large.

I am now plugged into various environmental agencies that do this water testing at their cost and get the testing data for free in exchange for information technology advice they may need as well as a host of water purification systems and processes I have been involved in globally since 1988 with advice on how to deploy them properly.

This data usually gets released years down the line into the public domain but I like to get the latest data from a myriad of sources.

One of the things I found real shocking about this journey into health and nutrition is how little medical doctors actually know about the subjects of nutrition and hydration per se.

Med students are in fact not trained on nutrition at all in the USA or Canada or even most of the western world, beyond real primitive basics.

This is an astounding omission as true health sans medicine is only achievable by paying the utmost attention to what you fuel your body with.

I myself had a lot of medical training from the University of Pretoria and the University of Cape Town as I myself was going to be an MD until I found blood in plastic tubes made me swoon a tad.

I had actually read and studied almost all of the medical training manuals from the age of 10 as that was what I wanted to do with my life until the blood thang closed that path for me.

My nickname at boarding school was "Prof" as I was always amazing my fellow boarders with all sorts of medical trivia I found buried in said medical school training manuals.

I then switched to telecommunications and digital electronics and did chemistry and biology from an electronic engineering perspective and applied some of the concepts there to my benefit at work and in my sporting life.

I also sold many companies developing drugs or seeking faster gene sequencing advances for human consumption high speed computer systems to make them more money and also picked up quite a bit from the efforts of my work enabling their work with my tools and their requirements et al in the field of blood testing and flu vaccines.

Many of these research scientists shared life hacks and knowledge they had with me that I put to good use to see if it worked for me.

I collaborated with a lot of Roche and Glaxo-Smithcline scientists while in Africa and then Novartis, Genentech and others here in the USA.

I myself also worked for Chiron Corp in Emeryville before Novartis bought them for their Flu vaccines business back in 2006.

I still marvel how little western medicine actually teaches med students and what it does not know about general nutrition though.

This is it seems, a huge global problem.

I was also a professional rugby player and helped several body builders with their own nutrition (Lourenco Brasil, who got to win Mr Universe back when).

So I also knew a lot about muscle growth and the best body food to best achieve the desired results for these guys needs.

Almost all of these body builders though were on one form of steroid or other so it was hard to ascertain exactly which amino acids they were taking which were contributing to what the steroids were doing and visa versa.

I did however conclude a lot of things from the nutrition side for myself as I myself never took any of these steroids.

I deliberately acted as the placebo but noted some strange anomalies en route that only I seemed to suffer from.

I did try these diets these folks were on though and knew what worked for me personally due to said dabbles.

Food for a gym rat in a gym for 6 hours a day is an expensive endeavor however and it was only because of the company that I was keeping that I was able to get the goodies the body builders were using in terms of excess and their over-supply they could never consume before it went bad or the shelf life expired.

My rugby club in Pretoria provided me with the meat proteins I required gratis and very little else.

At the peak of my rugby playing days I was 116 Kilos of muscled madness and when I got into flying gliders I trimmed myself down to 93Kg.

I sort of evened out at 235 lbs and swing around that weight these days trimming down to 225 and going up to 240 from time to time.

When I trained with Lourenco Brazil I got my weight up to 278 pounds of pure muscle sans steroids, just to prove that I could do it if I wanted but I did not ever go with anabolic steroids and I am pretty glad I was not tempted now that I know about the MTHFR issues I have always had.

I used to play a lot of golf but inflammation challenges in my left lower leg has impacted that noble ambition somewhat but I do go to the golf range to smack 110 golf balls three times a week in good weather conditions.

I am of the belief that the right diet can cure me of all of these various maladies I suffer from personally and am determined to solve that puzzle with the gut health issues I have had magnified since arrival in the USA in 1995 which I am certain is all due to folic acid being sprayed willy-nilly on US produce.

I even ran into crazed web sites claiming more folic acid should be sprayed on everything and marveled at their pig stupid dumbassness on that particular subject in general.

This is the problem with the internet, you can always find divided opinion on any issue for and against literally anything.

Fact checking Monsanto GMO tells you it is what they call a "Myth".

This is the same thing as finding the truth about a political or narrative situation they quickly call a "conspiracy theory" when it is counter to what "they" want you to believe.

We now all know 97.8% of all "conspiracy theories" are in fact completely true and the same is to be said for bio-enhanced and GMO enhanced bio-hacking efforts.

Monsanto GMO consequences are absolutely not a myth and anybody claiming it is are part of the crookery shenanigans that is going on in the food industry.

Furthermore, you will also find that approximately 97.8% of everything on the internet these days is complete and utter horse shit, and I may be being too kind here in my estimation.

My pals over at Google reckon it is about 99.7% and they should know, they farm near 100% of it by suppressing the good shit and ensuring that only the lies and drivel that match the dumbASS Marxist drivvel narrative gets to your eyeballs.

This is why Luxxle and DuckDuckGo and others are gaining favor with people as Googling shit these days just brings you bucket loads of total bullshit.

Of course, Microsoft's Bing is a Bill Gates mind fuckery effort that yields the most stupid false narrative bollocks imaginable, so I never bother with that crap due to the left wing stupid magnifier Microsoft applies to everything these daze, a la Google.

It's a choice of stupid or the stupidest to be honest with you.

Arguing if Google bullshit or Microsoft Bing bullshit is the better bullshit detracts from the fact that it is still a choice between the two main Marxist oriented bullshit flavors on offer for you to swill and drown in.

Microsoft, Meta, TickTok and Google between them have done a pretty thorough job of fucking up the entire internet actually.

I look at the internet much the same way these days as I used to look at the volumes of yellow pages Pacific Bell used to deliver to my apartment in Walnut Creek every 3 years or so.

Useful information was in there if you knew what and how to look for it but that was it in general.

No search engine is going to make it easy for you to find the truth unless you have the html address of where the information you seek is at.

This is just a sad fact of how politics and these big tech companies have conspired together to fuck you over in general.

The revelation the information in the media and on the internet was useless was mostly due to Elon Musk exposing this situation and how they were using Twitter and Meta platforms et al to achieve their nefarious political agendas.

It was said that the yellow pages only really had two useful applications, one as paper for a good joint and the other as emergency ass wipe in case you ran out of the real stuff.

They are in fact not much good for either use in actual fact but I did find a great use for Yellow Pages paper in the end.

I used it to light the charcoal for my Big Green Egg and Kamado Joe BBQ devices.

For this purpose it is most excellent indeed!

I got so good at that I could in fact light my weber cyclone stack full of charcoal with a single page torn out of said yellow pages.

Two pages was usually better than one page though especially if there was no appreciable breeze blowing to fan the cyclone thingy along.

In terms of what the Internet itself is useful for, general mind fuckery and selling of bullshit to the public at large appears to be the defacto and sole use for the internet these days.

For sales or Political bullshit agendas and especially for ripping people off by stealing identities and credit card information it seems perfect and the internet search engines have been modified to feed you the bullshit they want you to swallow wholesale or just sell you absolute tat.

Effectively, the internet these days is as useful to you and I as tits on a bull in terms of how we used it in past days when it was actually useful until politics and crime fucked it up real good that is.

The shit you have to get through to filter out the crap means the old way in a library is probably the most effective and efficient way to get information these daze.

It is funny how we have come full circle on that shit! Back to the future or whut?

The pandemic we all suffered through was a prime example of how social media was used to warp the minds of the public with internet platforms to totally mind-fuck the general population with the aim of reducing the population and of controlling the population through selling absolute bollocks to the general population at large.

The pandemic event has opened my eyes in a big way as to what is going on and what we eat and who grows it is all a part of the general scheme in effect aimed at harming humans in general.

So in any event, while listening to a Dan Bongino podcast over the Christmas of 23, I played the short 16 minute life hack podcast he had compiled with a guy by the name of Gary Brecka.

This podcast was to give me the glue I needed to stick all the fragments of conclusions together I had garnered over my life with regards to brain and gut health goals and agendas.

I solved the optimal brain health quest with a gal I used to work with I shall call Jona X a few years ago while trying to find the optimal coffee blend that would not send my ass into conniptions as I had concluded that coffee bean acidity was also a big problem for me personally.

Jona X taught me that butters and natural fats were the key to better health but it was only a part of the overall solution key for me at any rate.

Eliminating the bad fats were a key part of achieving the ultimate Chess brain status goals.

Gary Brecka will, I am sure solve the remaining pieces for me and it should all fall neatly into place from this point onward.

Next up is to get this MTHFR thing tested via a simple testing of homocysteine levels in the blood and not the $599 MTHFR test some places are hoiking on the interwebs.

The full MTHFR test is seldom required so I advise asking your doctor to test the homocysteine levels in the blood as a first step as this is cheap and is covered by your health insurance.

If said test shows your homocysteine levels as being high then chances are you have said MTHFR issues.

I will keep you updated as to my findings here so stay tuned motherfukkahs!

In the meantime, only eat grass fed meat, no farm based fish products (only line caught), stay away from all GMO products and processed foods, use Hydrogen water all the time and stay away from sugary and white anything stuff like breads, flour, pasta and such!

Also throw all your white rice away and replace it all with brown non GMO rice.

Start to use the ultimatehuman podcasts for an experiment to see what b complex folates you can start with to get the train moving on the right track while you wait for the blood test results....

It can certainly do no harm, even for those resistant to MTHFR gene issues.

Since penning this blog I have had a horde of emails with interesting data on this MTHFR issue.

It is starting to look like the sea of ubiquitous stupidity we have all been drowning in may be down to lack of nutrients in the diet of the insane at large.

The data is suggesting as much as 87% of people are effected by MTHFR in one form or another which means only a scant 13% of people are unaffected.

This issue can be cured by ingestion of methofolated B+ complex with 2 pills a day. One in the AM and one in the PM.

I am on day 174 and am feeling pretty fantastic using new and fresh vitamins and krill oils!

I am eating pretty carefully though but I have not felt this good since my peak rugby playing days which wuz 1987-1990....

Back then, for breakfast I had 6 eggs (raw blended with Worcester Sauce) 200g of Kudu liver cooked with organic onions and truffles and 400g of fresh papaya and 200g Skyr yogurt made in Denmark for dessert.

I then had an amino supplement from Muscletech or some similar cutting edge lab in the form of a 250ml drink and went to work out for one hour 20 minutes on just legs.

I then drank an electrolyte purified beverage and went off to work.

At lunch time I had a 300g Kudu flank steak or lamb steak done medium rare with 2 avocados with another muscle labs protein shake which was made with fresh strawberries and body tech electrolytes and worked through to five PM.

At 5:15 I worked out at the Gym on legs for 1 hour and then had chicken breasts for dinner with sweet potato and assorted salads and then went to the sauna for 45 minutes.

After that I had a 5 minute ice bath and did a cardio regime for 45 minutes with skipping ropes and swimming laps followed by three liters of pure water based electrolytes and then went to bed and repeated the same thing the next day.

I also started the day with a 5 min ice bath by the way.

Rugby Practice was three times a week from 5:30 to 7:15 followed by fatty lamb ribs and chicken drums on a charcoal braai with the protein shake and electrolytes before sleep time.

I was not allowed any bread, ice cream or cheese on this diet in the rugby season either and drank only green tea with zero coffee or any sodas of any kind.

I drank 12 liters of flat water a day when I played Rugby and this was cold and gold filtered fare. The water filter was made of pure gold mesh and did something exotic to the hydrogen in the water, but I do not remember what exactly.

I was supposed to eat pasta but they canned that after it turned me into a shit bomb until they later discovered I could safely eat brown lasagna pasta made with minced lamb in small quantities.

Saturday was Game day and Sunday was one 2 hour upper and lower body workout with lights out by 9 PM after 3 liters of electrolytes were drained in the post game recovery regime.

Beer and alcohol was also banned but I was not much of a drinker back then but would have a Windhoek export with the lamb chops or boerewors on occasion as the hops worked well for me but not if I had more than 300ml.

I had to watch the amount of boerewors I consumed with how much Windhoek export as this sausage is very fatty.

If I balanced it right the brain and body were in wonderful synchronicity and if I got it wrong my stomach ruined everything.

My coach eventually assigned me a boerewors minder to watch me at BBQ's as I was a picker with bits here and there as I drifted between people I circulated with instead of one set amount all at once and nothing else afterwards.

Windhoek lager was then made with some fabulous Namibian water and other ingredients that are not GMO tainted by the way.

For snacks I ate a lot of nuts and fresh fruit and some dark Swiss chocolate with some South African dried fruit assortments on occasion.

This diet seems to have been a whole lot more healthier than my US diet which cannot tolerate any GMO based ingredients at all.

The body builders I kept company with at the gym also shied away from bread and I did as well for the most part as it seemed to make me overly tired for reasons I was unable to fathom.

So I had some blips when I took some of my Omega 3-6-9 Nordic fish oils that prompted me to go back into why my stomach got upset again.

There were two common denominators the finger was pointing to 1. My Ginkyo Sake or 2. My haloed Nordic Omega gels whut cost me a small fortune.

Cross examining the data to all the incidents over the last 37 months pointed the finger at the darn gels so I went to go look at the details on the container.

Yeah.....They expired in June 2019. In my head I bought them "recently". I think the damage to my stingy Scottish DNA sequence in shelling out for them over-rode my pragmatism.

They were $1.02 apiece and I bought a good few in that batch.

I sent them to the lab to confirm and they came back with did you take these?

After I explained and they stopped laughing I went through all my stuff and dispatched almost $7000 worth of stuff to the garbage pile.

I am a terrible hoarder which can be seen by the old computer stuff running in my home I have hoarded all over the place.

Computers can still work long past EOL, but apparently vitamins, fish oils and supplements have a shelf life and it turns out 98% of even the freshest seeming fish oils are rancid from the get go.

My Berkeley Prof pal shared the report he compiled in the Bay area and those are the stats! He alleges he had samples from over 450 stores in the Bay Area..

Who knew??

I also dabbled with an ancient Tibetan supplement called Shilajit and found that the right good quality supplements with the right shilajit has pulled my system right in cahoots with the B + Complex to overcome my homocystiene deficiency symptoms care of GMO and fructose corn syrup drenched consumables.

I suspect the good shilajit on it's own can fix all these issues as it also has B+ compounds in it.

The thing to realize here is these are life habits you must stick to.

Shilajit is not taken every day either.

I take it with my tea in the AM for 3 days then have one day free.

Sometimes I take 3 days off supplements and Shilajit if I feel I need to do this.

Your body is quite good at telling you what you need to do to go fix things.

I am terrible at drinking water and this is the source of most of my imbalances.

I do not have cravings like I used to care of the shilajit anymore either by the way, the body seems much more in tune and balanced than it has ever been since I was living in Durban in my 20's and an active rugby player trying to break into the top flight.

I also was directed by my Russian cosmonaut chums at something called Prostadine which is very effective at helping you piss like a racehorse quick.

They give this to astronauts who are staying in space more than a day and it contains an exotic Japanese seaweed extract that helps flow and prostate issues.

In Japan almost no elderly men get prostate problems so I examined the data and concluded this is just a simple fact of their diet.

Shilajit has most of the stuff Prostadine has, bar that seaweed extract.

So here is what I am on right now:

This tea is for the shilajit and Prostadine I take in the AM on an empty stomach.

Prostadine contains some of the rare seaweed extract good for prostate shrinkage purposes and is what NASA have been giving astronauts for years to piss like a horse in space - it works ratified by NASA Astronauts and Russian Cosmonauts.

This is the essencraft Shilajit I take that is awesome with my morning tea. I also squirt one dose of Prostadine in the teacup with this stuff.

Do not mix Shilajit with any honey.

To get the maximum effect from Shilajit go vegetarian with your diet for 30 days or cut down red meat consumption by a lot and switch to white fish and also stop all alcohol consumption when you have the urinary tract burning sensation that crimps your flow.

You also need to drastically increase your water intake while on shilajit.

30 minutes after your first morning shilajit tea, drink 1 tall glass of cold filtered water, hydrogen water makes your body heal very fast but the machines that make hydrogen enriched water start at $249 - I know it works, as when I played pro rugby years ago, we used hydrogen water to heal after a game - trust me, it works - proven by Springbok Rugby World Champion Rugby winners since 1994 and a South African Springbok rugby player introduced me to this secret.

These are the core supplements I take every day - I split the pill intake between AM and PM.

I take one B Plus complex with one cranberry gel and one vitamin D in the AM and the rest at 7 PM after a meal which is the zinc and saw palmetto capsule with the B+ and cranberry gel.

Krill is twice a week, Mondays and Fridays - if the Krill makes your pee tract burn - stop taking immediately - turns urine a very light yellow color btw.

Ground control to Major Tom Piss flow control....

The prostadine has a measurement flow topper, be sure to shake the shit out of the bottle before you squirt a dose into your teacup with the Shilajit - tastes like shit solo...

This is the one that helps your body to break down your food by building the right amino acid methionine based chains.

There are a few brands of these available by the way and results are different for different people so you may need to try 4 or five brands to find one that does not upset your gut.

There are rules to follow on this regime of supplements.

Try limit alcohol to 2 glasses of red wine per night - no spirits unless it is the weekend.

GMO free and Gluten free with everything possible - not always easy to do but try your best.

When you do get sick, stop drinking all alcohol immediately.

NO WHITE RICE - EVER - stick with GMO Free brown basmati....

Ban Fructose corn syrup and all artificial sweeteners from your life STAT!

Try ban all processed foods and dairy - these are not your friend, after your system returns to normal you can treat yourself once a week.

Lots of salads and green stuff as well as red veg like beetroot are your pals - I recommend iceberg lettuce with a lot of avacado in your diet and the smaller tomatoes that are shaped like mini NFL footballs.

Brussel sprouts and kale are your new pals - stay away from all legumes bar almonds - you need to eat a small handfull of these in the evening every day, 6 days a week.

Stay away from caviar and rich sea foods like swordfish and limit your shellfish consumption - oysters are ok once every 10 days.

If you experience immediate gut cramping after you eat something note what it is in a diary - this may not be consistent but I have found this is related to the Methofolated B9 ability of my body to produce other methionine based chain aminos based on B + Complex compounds - refer to my methionine compound chemistry drawings in this blog.

Folates are not equal to Folic acid by the way - a lot of these drawings state folic acid but this is plain wrong - they mean folates.

This is like saying Diesel in a gas engine car is ok because they all came from the Hydrocarbons in a barrel of oil.

Unless you happen to be pregnant your body has ZERO need for folic acid.

If you are a male you just have zero need for folic acid drenched produce - source all your veggies from small farms that do not do the GMO frankenfood number on what you eat!

This is where getting lettuce and such green leaf veggies is a tad tricky.....You have to ideally find a local hydroponics outfit that produces good stuff for a local expensive farm to table type restaurant operation - they are there.

Grass fed beef and lamb is your ONLY OPTION.

Do not eat farm factory anything especially fish but particularly beef, lamb and pork.

You need to read the labels on EVERYTHING you buy, if it does not state GMO free and Gluten free do not consume or buy it!

If you consume sushi - you need to get into the exotic Japanese vinegar they use to kill parasites by painting it on the sushi and also use the pickled ginger with each sushi helping - this gives your gut bacteria the stuff it needs to balance the gut out.

Stay away from probiotic labelled products - they are by and large not the stuff you want in your gut chemistry - Skyr yogurts from Scandinavia are pretty good for the right stuff you need there.

You need to cut coffee consumption to no more than 2 cups a day as well FYI.

Go forth and experiment but do not jump to conclusion - I was on this diet for 30 days before I started feeling real swell again, so be patient, patient!
