  1. Welcome, Steven!

    I grew up before computers were being used in schools at all, but I dabble in learning things right now to see what happens with my brain plasticity.

    So you are a full-stack web developer?

    I ended up reading about the difference between PHP, Python, and Ruby.

    What I found the most interesting is that the most discussed language on the internet is something called, “Other.’

    Not sure I learned all that much, except which of the most well-known site’s use which and that makes me wonder if you are going to be using all of it.

    I admire Dr. Greger for endeavoring to keep up with all of it.

    Not to mention keeping up with all of the human languages.

  2. They are all such cuties.

    Okay, I have another topic.

    Is social anxiety related to inflammation, too?

    I ask for a specific reason. I have always been self-conscious and after my brain issues, I have had social anxiety. My autistic young friend has the same high level of self-consciousness. His is probably higher.

    I looked up autism because his mother was so miserable about it and his mother is also self-conscious and that is why the two of us connect. Both of us are shy and awkward and she is very intelligent but has no concept of what to do for her son.

    Looking up autism, I read the part where the amygdala and ACC are interacting, but there is supposed to be a message sent to the prefrontal cortex telling it that it is okay to calm down and that the message doesn’t seem to be getting sent.

    So, I set up my ICES to work on my prefrontal cortex and put on binaural beats because I am still trying to do the Alzheimer’s gamma process and keep forgetting.

    Well, I felt like it was a supremely useful device for mindfulness and meditation, and I meditated and visualized my ACC telling my prefrontal cortex that I was safe and it was okay to relax.

    It felt nice and I didn’t think much about it, but there were 3 things the very next day, which I would usually have had social anxiety about and I didn’t have any.

    I have a social event with strangers to go to this weekend and I don’t have social anxiety. I have separated myself from people on purpose for 6 years and I suddenly lost my social anxiety after one session with the M-1.

    I had the same “It worked in one session experience with my foot and ankle injury and that I think was because the size of my swollen leg decreased to half size. Inflammation.

    It worked that quickly on my sleep, too. Not sure about inflammation in that case, but the depression study made me ask, “Why is it that some things just radically changed after one session? Could it be because those things were related to inflammation?”

    Cognitive things, requiring plasticity seem to take a while and pain without inflammation seem to take a while. (The pain in my back and shoulder took a while. My foot pain disappeared after one day, even though I had been in pain and my leg was swollen for a few years.)

    Reprogramming my food tastes took a while, but it worked like crazy.

    Trying to pass the Brain Gauge tests is taking forever, but sleep is no longer frustrating, even on the nights I stay up because I have things to do.

    Could social anxiety be related to inflammation? I ask because the mother of the autistic child may put him on pot for his social anxiety and my social anxiety disappeared like magic and really hasn’t returned since the ICES session.

    1. I just realized that broccoli was what helped in Autism and they have that self-conscious and social anxiety.

      Broccoli.

      Fever

      Does A Faraday law PEMF process do the same thing as broccoli or fever?

        1. I watched the broccoli and autism video and it affected MTor and I think PEMF increases it.

          I still haven’t had self-consciousness or fear since the one application and I barely slept last night catching up on work, but I still do not have any social anxiety.

          I was so high in it and now still have zero, even if I am still not interacting like everyone else.

          Inflammation is my going theory unless PEMF can increase MTOR without affecting downstream.

          1. PEMF affects Heat Shock Proteins.

            So maybe it is like the fever with autism.

            https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3476825/

            It also affects synapses and calcium ion transport and other things.

            I might not figure out the exact mechanism, but I just had one of the Autism fever experiences and I am not sure that I acted normally, but I lost even the performance anxiety with using the Brain Gauge.

            I still got a 5% score on TOJ and I still got a 27% score on time perception problems, but I improved in other areas and mostly, I didn’t get self-conscious or too self-monitoring.

            I had what I imagine the Autism people had experienced and I don’t know, did I get rid of an endotoxin or something?

  3. It still worked.

    I went to the bridal shower and experienced zero self-consciousness and zero social anxiety.

    I really had what the autistic kids have happen with fever.

    Part of my brain seems to have shut off.

    Did any of the broccoli mechanisms shut off part of the brain?

    I am thinking one part of my brain got nearly a perfect score on TOJ and another part of my brain got almost nothing right.

    When I lost the self-conscious part of the brain, I also lost all sense of what my test scores would be on the brain gauge.

    I didn’t even know that you can shut off parts of your brain and not know the information that part knows.

    It is still lasting after several days.

  4. When and where can I get the Cruciferocious Apron? I REALLY want one! Omg I was so excited when I saw Dr. Greger wearing it on one of his cooking videos. I don’t see it shown on the current fundraiser choices.
