Oh good, I’m glad! It’s my pleasure! :)Hi @Jennifer! I’ve really enjoyed this thread and learned a lot from it—thank you for your explanatory posts and writing style!
I’ve recently been getting into honeydew and can totally tell the difference in effect between a very ripe one and an unripe one—the latter will wreck me, while the former will give me my life back.
I keep having spikes of high adrenaline throughout the day, often waking up in a very anxious and nervous state. Throughout the day I will have a high heart rate and low temperature. I recall in another thread that you mentioned having high adrenaline in the past. What worked in helping you resolve the high adrenaline symptoms?
Edit: I just saw your response to jet9 back in June, where you mention it happened to you because of gut irritation, or because of going too long without sugar, or having too much sugar at once. I will give these a shot :)
For sure! Ripe fruit and unripe fruit are worlds apart in my experience, too.
Yep, from gut irritation but mostly from low thyroid function — NDT stopped the daily adrenaline induced convulsions and syncope episodes — and hypoglycemia triggered by too much protein without enough carbs. I found that milk and gelatin didn’t trigger my hypoglycemia but more than a couple ounces of meat in a sitting did, and that I need a carb to protein ratio of roughly 4:1 to prevent it, as well as salt — I tended to not use much at all.
Have you tried having some protein with your juice and are you getting enough salt? Prior to tolerating milk, I found that I did best accompanying the juice with a couple ounces of salted meat (scallops and crab) or gelatin — I kept a batch of homemade gummies (with salt added to the recipe) in the fridge or added hydrolysate to the juice. The only way I can think to explain it is fruit improves my mood/mental state, protein grounds me and salt calms my nerves.
