No more pills

This shorts I got back in 2019 after at the end of my 50 pounds weight lost. Yeah, I gain quite a bit of weight after I retired from racing Ironman and becoming a Dad.  

My last 2 years of racing I was getting burned out, and my health was declining. Part due to a vegan diet experience, other part from just the nature of the job. Training full time is not easy on the body. Anyways, with everything combined I got diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2014.

Honestly, my diagnosis was a surprise because I really thought a vegan diet would make me healthier, but it was also a fire starter.  I always had this idea of health being about mind, body and soul, and I knew that I was not healthy. 

Fast forward to 2020 when covid-19 started I knew it I had to be at top shape with my health. Therefore I took a deep dive within to find the root of my trauma. Since, trauma is stored in the body, I thought: “accessing the root of my trauma will probably fix my Thyroid issues, because that’s where the trauma is stored in my body”. So, I did what I do best, followed my intuition and focus on the AIP (auto immune protocol, however I mainly did daily BBQs).

The thyroid is located at the throat chakra, and that was were my trauma was stuck. This chakra is related to self expression, therefore in order to heal my soul I needed to be as authentic as possible. That’s when this blog started to take shape, I wrote my book, and became a one man band with 2 YouTube channels. I also added some icing in the cake with a talk show, focus in talking about healing and music. And guess, what? I am off synthroid. It’s been already 3 months. Not only that, my therapist released me last week. Of course I schedule with her next month to discuss this, but boy, this is a big coincidence.

All I can say is, dreams can really guide you. It’s literally the story of my life. No more drugs! Again, weed is not a drug, I also use that for my soul, but not now. Soon.

Episode 1

Everything starts with a Dream. In my case, it was a band. Something that it started long ago but really started to take form in 2020.

Besides my talk shows, something I wanted to do was kinda like a motivacional YouTube channel. So I decided to combine all in one. Here is the first episode, the dream is true.

When two worlds collide

Last year I got so much shit from being unvaccinated. I mean, been called crazy was the nicest thing. The truth is, and I wrote in this blog before, I question if I am a genius or insane. Either way, my reason for being unvaccinated comes from experience. An experience the came from the battle of 18 ironmans in a search of understanding of a recurrent dream. Well, 2020 came along and that’s both worlds collided, the spiritual and physical, and I came to understand the recurrent dream.

Now, I know I don’t look like the kind of guy that is guided by the star, spirit or even dreams. Well, that is when things get hard because I am. It is what it is and it was not a problem until recently, when it came to covid-19 jab time. My intuition just gives me a big NO and society comes with the shame and blaming game. Sure, me a middle class Dad is the menace to society for trusting my intuition, something that guided me my entire life. Between that and the political game of blame and lies, of course I will trust my intuition more than any Bill Gates, Dr Faucci or Pope Francis.

Now if you care to take a look, read me like a book, and try to understand my insanity, you can. I tell my story raw, just like this blog, in my book Punkaste. Now, if you don’t care, is cool, just don’t be an asshole about it. And if you decide to be an asshole, it’s okay, I won’t be offended. It’s not going to be the first time and most likely not the last time I am labeled as crazy. It is what it is!

Now, in a world where major decisions are made in a handshake, and handshakes are nothing more than a subtle fuck you, I will stick to my intuition. I won’t sell my soul. We still have free will, right? or is all bull shit? Anyways, my book is out!
