• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Ray Peat: It activates the “helplessness” reactions in the body, stress weakening your own life, and I think it can help to get out of that if you think of your life as a continuation of theirs—the same life, though with fewer bodies.

    Relaxation/meditation and eyes defocus

    I don't know if you have ever experienced the eyes-defocusing that can happen when you close your eyes and relax or concentrate on your breath.

    Long hours driving for job. Mitigation of harm?

    I'm Attempting Reversal Of Advanced PSC Cataracts, Feedback Appreciated

    In April a week after my 50th I finally noticed my vision was terrible. I'd been dealing with some major issues and sort of swept my declining vision under the rug. I've been myopic since age 13 so I was already somewhat used to it. At the ophthalmologist, my left eye tested "counting fingers"...

    Red Light And Eye Health

    There is research that red light can be beneficial for eye health, such as lowering ROS and oxidative stress, increasing ATP, exerting neuroprotective effects and lowering IOP. Has anyone here shone red light on their eyes either with open or closed lids and got benefits from it?

    Calcification May Be The Cause Of Age-related Bllindness
