Atom’s Input On Dr. Ray Peat #1
First of all, Ray Peat is like a super-hero to me.
Second, I disagree with him about “more than a few things.”
Let’s do the “first of all, super-hero” part first (since it was listed that way).
Vibrant Gal and I started listening to Ray Peat in 2013.
Since then we’ve listened to hundreds of Ray Peat interviews, most of them multiple times.
I learned about Yellow Fat Disease from him in 2013.
But it was One Radio Network’s January 1, 2014, show that “stuck” it in my mind (but I was too lazy to look up the term for two more years, and the rest, as they say, is History.
We’ve probably logged in to Ray Peat interviews an average of two hours a day, every day, since 2013 (except for the three months we lived in New Zealand).
We already had our daily dose of Ray Peat this morning while eating our Solar breakfast.

Someone asked Dr. Jennifer Daniels about a swollen, purple foot.
Well, I had one too — the right foot and ankle (it’s always about a woman, at least for me!).
It was intermittent, but, when it manifested, it did so with a vengeance.
I became Bigfoot with a big ankle — classic edema and discoloration.
What was the remedy?
Organic oranges every day without fail, and ditch the tuna fish and mayonnaise for good.
It’s been two or three years now without a purple, swollen foot and ankle.
Even when my right foot wasn’t swollen, my right ankle was always slightly larger than the left one.
Both have been exactly the same size for several years.
Thank you, Dr. Ray Peat!

Someone named Robert asked Dr. Peat about his optic migraines.
The remedy was sugar and aspirin. (Oct. 15, 2019, One Radio Network)
I started seeing these optical “coke lights” in 2009; the first two times at Gall Bladder Time.
It’s an entertaining light show, complete with fluorescent zigzag lines and other electronic special effects.
“Coke lights” are another name for these pain-free migraines, and cocaine doesn’t have to be involved.
I had only tried coke once, two decades previously, and I didn’t like it.
Once you try el-es-DEE, how can you get wiggy with anything else?
Besides, I heard what coke did to John Holmes’s porn career.
Long story short, the next time I had an optic migraine, I immediately shoveled down several tablespoons (over 100 calories) of C&H pure granulated white cane sugar.
Poof! No more optic migraine. No more light show.
Bear in mind, nothing I’d ever done before had ever made the slightest difference.
It was just, chill out, and wait 15 or 20 minutes for the end of the light show.
No aspirin was required; just plain white sugar.
Thank you, again, Dr. Ray Peat!
