Acidosis In New-born Calves

Is it going to be a difficult calving? If so, the calf could be put under stress by acidosis AFTER a difficult calving, a calf can quite often suffer from a degree of acidosis. Acidosis occurs when blood becomes too acidic due to carbon dioxide build up. When a calf goes through a difficult birth, there is often a delay in the start of normal breathing allowing carbon dioxide to build up. Also, if trauma occurs, the calf's ability to expand its chest and breathe normally can be compromised. As a result, the calf's ability to blow out the excess carbon dioxide and breathe in oxygen is compromised. - Erratic kicking movement when the calf is inside the uterus. - The calf's breathing is still irregular 30 seconds after birth. - The calf has not lifted its head and lied upright in the first five minutes after birth. - There is a lack of muscle tone (the limbs may appear and feel flaccid). - The foot is not withdrawn when pinched between the toes. Acidosis reduces calf vigour and makes them 'dopey'. It also reduces their strength and willingness to suckle. It can also impair the absorption of colostral antibodies in the gut which leaves them less protected against diseases such as pneu Continue reading >>

    With the high fats one consumes during ketosis, your brain and nervous system has plenty of easily-metabolized energy. I was using MCT oil, avocados, fish, etc. I was blending up protein shakes which contained high levels of healthy fresh fruits and so on. I was consuming Wheatgrass juice. And I was supplementing with many natural herbs and vitamins.
    As for nootropics, I was using Cognitex by the Life Extension Foundation.
    I was also using Oxiracetam and Noopept.
    Additionally, I was using Ginkgo biloba, Bacopa extract, Chaga mushroom extract, Upgraded Glutathione, CILTEP, a B12 patch, Green Tea, Taurine, Iodine, Korean Red Ginseng Root, etc.
    Another thing which you might discount as a nootropic at first until you research it, is: Protein. I was using Upgraded Grassfed Protein made from New Zealand cows. Added to it is Colostrum which is the first few days of milk production by the cows.
    I also was eating raw Oysters, adding real grassfed butter to my meals, drinking San Pellagrino water, supplementing with Zinc, eating Pistachios, getting sunlight, Earthing, Exercising beginning in the Spring, doing cold therapy, etc.
    I can say that the results were excellent. My memory improved. My ability to hold much more complex ideas within the mind was vastly increased. You can imagine it as being able to reason with a thought which is made up of 2–3 dozen mini-thoughts and have them all integrated in a 3-dimensional model.
    I would love to help you answer more questions you may have. I coach people for optimal performance for a living. If you’d like to thank me, I can hook you up with sources for these supplements.

    Oh, P.S., I also used Magnesium which was quite gainful.

    It could be very good at first, but there is only so much tour brain can do and it could very well explode with all the super power you might get from it.
