Life Extension Technology:
Power Beyond the Tastebuds

I know I promised something lighter and greener a second ago. But first, we’ll need to explore something heavier and darker, that actually guaranteed the ‘something lighter’ into my body in terms of my wellbeing. Get ready for another backward way of mine that made an enormous impact in my life. It’s a Level 2 thing, of course.

Unfortunately, as with many things, I couldn’t mention this to anyone earlier because it would only have stirred things up.

A while ago, I decided to start taking all of my anger out on my taste buds as a way to fizzle things out in my mind. It was a deflection technique that really worked in my favour. As a result of this strange ritual, I wound up reconditioning my taste buds, which gave me a nutritional boost in life. I stepped back into the unpalatable to spring forward in life. Pretty cool, right? Needless to say, not many people can pull this off long-term. Nor could they ignore the shock delivered by the taste of my go-to drink below.

On a regular basis, I devour a Kale and Broccoli Bomber, aka The Reset. I add to the mix Apple Cider Vinegar and room temp water, then blend it into a semi-chunky mess. Although occasionally, I’m known to put a teaspoon of bentonite clay in, to help remove any toxins from my system. Unfortunately, certain ‘delicacies’ take a long time to flush out.

As part of my wellbeing and recovery, I find things that are good for me but taste like crap and I oddly mix them together forming the taste-challenged meal. Then, I quietly go to war inside my head ︻╦╤── … The aim is to give my perception of the troubles a break as my attention grips onto my tastebuds whilst I shovel in the good stuff. It’s basically two birds and one stone.

In another instance, below, is my Sauerkraut made with Red Cabbage, Carrots and Beetroot. Plus, I use a small amount of High-Grade Australian Sea Salt (a very special hand-harvested macrobiotic salt—retaining a good amount of trace minerals: see Olsson’s). It is also not designed for taste (long ferment time), having no fruit, herbs, or spices.

If I were to leave the lid off, I’d attract all the flies in my street.

Lastly, I eat (swallow) raw chopped garlic, turmeric, and ginger by the tablespoons (though this is more seasonal). I am also adding in whole peppercorns—no chewing, so less war. As I said, I have to get creative in order to be my own Doctor, Therapist, and Soldier all rolled into one.

The Result

I kill and destroy far less than ever in the real world today, which is a good thing. But I’ve also sharpened my claws for any surprises on the road ahead. If or when they are needed.

Life now responds in a softer tone.

Did you know, when you incorporate a nutritional powerhouse in a taste-challenged meal, you appreciate food more. Treats become even tastier because the bar has been set so low (let’s make that three birds). I used to eat for taste all the time, but it made me dull. Unpalatable Nutrition + Spurts of Significant Enjoyment in my eating is now my way.

Not many people commit to such a long-term campaign, which means I get the edge over them.

I thank my Backwards God for sharing this discipline with me. 🙏🏼
