Clean and Clear - The Quest for Clarity

Cognitive Enhancement Stack 2,916 Updated: 2017-09-01  
Experimental stack for clarity and mental energy. Dosages may vary over time

Health Notes & References


My experience with substances (Modafinil, Semax etc) have been mostly manic and totally awesome. However, most of my brain fog, fatigue and anhedonia have been dealt with by a combination of Psychotherapy (neurosis) and David Hawkins work regarding vibrational states. My biggest revelation was that these substances only mask psychosomatic symptoms - they do not remove them or address their cause. And when the drugs wear out, the same shitty feelings return. Thus, I recommend this approach to anyone who seeks to better handle their apathy/depression and wean off the pharmaceuticals.

Leave a comment if you have any inquiries.

Thanks.

P.S Modafinil is still the shit ;)

  • 2017-09-01 10:19:09: Health notes was changed from Contributing lifestyle factors include lifting, diet, meditation, polyphasic sleep and working at my stand-up desk (includes anti-fatigue mat) which does wonders! *A jot down of how i'm feeling on a regular basis: The Good: Elevated mood, Greater appreciation and zest for life. Gushing flow of ideas for writing and conversation. Zero stress/anxiety. The Bad: A brooding impatience generally accompanied by irritability, which leads to increased profanity. May be ticked off by small matters - for example, being around someone who has the flu. My mind never shuts up unless I'm meditating or sleeping. To stop for a moment and smell the roses has become an exercise in willpower. // My morning cocktail consists of half a lemon, 1 tsp of MSM (sulfur) and a pre/probiotic formula (ezyflora). I'll then take a pre-workout/BCAA mix (contains AMP citrate) shortly after, before heading off to the gym. // My nightly cocktail (taken 15-20 mins before bed) is a combination of 1 tbsp of almond butter/raw honey with cinnamon, 1 tbsp of MCTs and P/P (listed above) Acetylcholine dominant.

Any recommendations regarding vitamin/mineral supplementation for optimization?
