When I was stressed and depleted:
- Whole Body Vibration reminded me how good “normal” used to feel.
- Later, I discovered pregnenolone; and it restored my body’s ability to stay that way, all day long, every day. Now “normal” feels better than ever.
Healing is a process of discovery. The body heals itself, once you feed it what it needs.
“Pregnenolone” isn’t related to “pregnancy” 🙂
- Pregnenolone is the building block from which all other steroid hormones are made.
- Endogenously, pregnenolone is built from cholesterol.
- sustained stress, over years or decades
- carbohydrate-rich diet + circadian rhythm destruction = hormonal disaster
- mineral deficiencies make this worse: iodine, magnesium, zinc, for example
- “running on adrenaline”
- lethargy, depression, light-headed or brain-fog a few hours after eating
- waking up throughout the night: cortisol rhythm out-of-sync, trying to raise your blood-sugar at night. This is usually because you’ve eaten too much sugar (too many carbs) in one sitting recently (in the previous day or two) which set off a blood-glucose roller-coaster that takes days to slow down.
- Blood-sugar-high is followed by blood-sugar-low. That’s the roller-coaster ride often associated with sympathetic dominance. (Eating a large, high protein, high fat breakfast (zero carbs), can help reset your circadian cycles faster. No lunch. Just a fairly balanced dinner with minimal carbs.)
- sometimes chronic stress is followed by a “bloated belly” as the result of sympathetic dominance impairing peristalsis, and causing SIBO; resulting in excess gut permeability or “leaky gut“, and then often autoimmune reactions to eating certain foods. In this case, relaxation is the key to restoring healthy movement of the intestines, and gradually a healed gut, and a flat belly.
What Whole Body Vibration can do for you if you’re SNS-dominant, in need of forced relaxation:
- Allow you to feel energy you haven’t felt in years. Exhilarating energy, while perfectly calm.
- It can be as thoroughly relaxing as a professional full-body massage; except you can do it every day, without going bankrupt.
What WBV can’t do is bring you to the next level of a serene “recharging” exhaustion.
- In this case pregnenolone can do what The Whole Body Vibrator can’t.
- They reinforce and complement each other.
Hormonal deficiencies can make you feel weak, depressed, “running on adrenaline”,
- Restoring those hormones will allow you to feel exhausted in a good way, like you’re finally “recharging”
Enable your body to turn off SNS-Dominance, to allow the Para-Sympathetic nervous system to take over, as it should, every day. This is a healthy cycle. When this happens, you’ll understand what recharging exhaustion feels like:
- It’s an effortless silence of mind.
- It’s a calm body, not weak, not sleepy, just completely at rest.
- You might feel like you’ve just walked down from a volcano on Bali, staring at the beach… Exhausted, serene, at peace. In paradise. But you’re just at home, in the land of the free and the brave (or the enslaved and the cowardly, these days)
- But the stresses of daily life won’t matter. Your body is at peace. You need this.
Try pregnenolone. 100mg capsules are common.
- At first, you may “feel kind of invincible” with only 100mg, taken in the morning, on an empty stomach.
- Later, it may take 500mg or a whole gram of Pregnenolone to make you feel so good.
- I recommend the smallest dose that helps relieve SNS-Dominance symptoms. It’s an n=1 experiment.
“Pregnenolone Steal” is a complex phenomenon that can be caused by one or more of a doze or so metabolic issues. Taking pregnenolone, for a sufficient time, can help relieve these symptoms long enough for your body to recover, and then no longer need exogenous support to feel great every day.
- Like any serious medical problem, endocrine-system problems may require a medical doctor who is educated in health (not just disease management) and lots of blood analysis.
- Or, perhaps experimenting on your own with supplementing all the right minerals may be all you need.
The Whole Body Vibrator can restore your motivation to get healed, by reminding you how good it is to feel good.
