• 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.

    Sharing My Template For Temperature & Pulse Logging

    Sharing this template since it might be useful. I put a symbol key on it (with a little extra space to customize your own) for the tracking of certain types of foods, suppliments.... that may drop or raise temperature and pulse in your current state. Must print full image to avoid cutting off...

    Will T3 on low pulse make it lower ?

    Ray and @haidut have mentionned that taking t3 for hypo people with high pulse could first decrease the pulse because of adrenalin. If someone in the other hand is hypo with low pulse (60) and low CO2 production, is taking t3 could decrease that pulse to 50 or so ? Could someone share some...

    Best ways to test at home? Temp, pulse, etc

    How do you guys check your temperature and pulse at home? I've been doing underarm temperatures but have heard that oral might be more indicative. What other tests can you do at home to check for proper metabolism/low stress hormones? I remember @haidut saying the amount you urinate may be...

    Your Confidence In Making Decisions Depends On Your Heart Rate

    I was hesitating if I should title the post "your confidence depends on your metabolism" since this is what Ray has discussed with a few people over email, but the study did not directly measure metabolism. Instead, the scientists used subliminal messaging to excite people and raise their heart...

    Monitoring Vitals (temp, Pulse, Glucose Etc)

    I was curious to know how people charted their temperature and pulse. I have often gotten started on this using a thermometer and using my wrist for pulse. But I have usually given up soon after as its inconvenient at work and anytime you're outside the house. I was looking for One gadget that...

    Wearable Technology For Tracking Pulse/temps

    I thought I'd start a post on wearable devices that can help track useful vital signs (pulse, temps etc.). Even though there are plenty of devices in this "smart watch" category, I'm listing devices that track at minimum heart rate and temperature. Here is my list, if you know of more, please...

    Temps And Pulse Chart

    Hey all I once ran across a page that had a chart of temps and pulse that attempted to explain what different patterns meant. For example, if temps drop after eating breakfast and pulse was good. There were like 6-8 different lines. I've searched all over and can't find it again. Anyone know? Thx

    Does (nor)adrenaline Always Increase Pulse?

    Do these stress hormones as a rule cause an increase in pulse? It seems like that is mentioned everywhere. I suspect I have a problem with these two being high but my pulse is always 50-60, and taking thyroid does nothing to change my pulse.

    Does Caffeine Affect Accuracy Of Temp/pulse Reading?

    I take my temp and pulse thing on waking. Then again one hour after breakfast. I was just wondering if I've just had a load of coffee with my breakfast, wouldn't that affect my pulse/temp readings and maybe give a false high? So I might be seeing the effects of the stimulation of the caffeine...

    Tracking Software For Temp, Pulse And Nearly Everything Else

    Here is a neat little tool I have been using to check my pulse. Put one hand on your pulse, the other on the spacebar, and tap the spacebar to the beat of your pulse. I am pretty good at it now so it only takes 4 or 5 taps to get a good reading. :dance http://www.all8.com/tools/bpm.htm
