Flaxseed oil contains Vitamin B and omega 3 needed for oxygenation of our cells to prevent cancer. When we take our fish oils and flaxseed oil, we take Vitamin E and D too.  Fat soluble vitamins together and water soluble vitamins combine.

There are many ways to oxygenate our cells in our body. Sleep, exercise, whole foods, quality supplementation, sunshine, and avoidance of toxins and environmental stressors including microwaved food if you can cook or eat raw.

Eggs are complete protein, better served as soft boiled.

As we age, we need more good cholesterol from flaxseed, wild salmon, avocado, walnut and other quality supplementation.

It was likely bottled in safe gas environment. Once you use it, oxygen and germs get inside – so, it has to be kept in a fridge.
It is a high quality product.

Hi, is Carlson fish oil a good quality to take? It comes in a dark glass jar but it was no refrigerated until I put it in my fridge at home?


Artour Rakhimov (mod) said:

Experience is the ultimate criteria. Many students either progress 2-10 times slower or cannot progress without fish oil. Maybe this is because they eat animal proteins or something else…


Lukasz said:

Artour, you should look at biochemistry books and see why derivatives are not good for human body. Especially when EFAs are key factor in oxygen transportation into cells through cell membrane.

“Essential fatty acids are found in the structural lipids of the cell, often in the 2 position of the phospholipids, and are concerned with the structural integrity of the mitochondial membrane (respiratory-based enery producing).” [Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry, 26th edition, p. 191]

EFAs consumpion every day (parent Omega-3 and parent Omega-6 in proportion 1:1 to 1:2) increases fluidity in the cell membrance, which means easier oxygen and other biochemical transfer.

“Therefore a high content of unsaturated fatty acid residues in the membrane lipids makes the membrane more fluid.” [Principles of Biomedical Chemistry, 1998, p. 22]

Fish oil can’t get you EFAs, only its derivatives that are not necessary, because human body syntezizes them from “parents” (ALA and LA) in the exact amount that is needed. On the other hand, body cannot make parent Omega-3 and Omega-6 – and therefore, we should get them from food. Its not opinion, its what biochemistry textbooks says.

While Buteyko method helps release the oxygen from hemoglobin, EFAs helps to penetrate oxygen through cell membrane. These are two of the most important things I discovered when it comes to maximum body oxygenation.

Chia seeds, and other plant-based sources, do not contain EPA or DHA.


Luke said:

Artour, would you suggest to replace Omega 3-6-9 from fish with other sources of these fats, for example – chia seeds? I eat about 3 teaspoons of organic chia seeds a day in form of smoothies. Would that get me enough Omegas?


Artour (mod) said:

Thanks, a few pages may appear here. I write mostly on e-breathing.com and other sites, as well as doing videos.


Anonymous said:

Thank you. Will you update site or write me here when you have looked it over? Perhaps Joel Fuhrman can help you. He has put a lot of effort in researching supplements and he’s an advocate for especially zinc, epa/dha and vitamin d. Not so much calcium and magnesium.


Artour (mod) said:

Thanks. We ll have a look at it.


Anonymous said:

Howcome you don’t recommend or put any emphasis on vitamin D? In my opinion it’s the most underated supplement of all time.


Artour (mod) said:

You can.


rubesh said:

can i use magnesium sulphate or epsom salt for raising my magensium levels besides buteyko breathing


Artour (mod) said:

You can try it on your arm, rub a teaspoon for about 4-5 minutes. Other body parts are even better absorbers.


Anonymous said:

how do you know that rectal administration of fishoil works? does the fishoil really get absorbed?


kees said:

But david please keep in mind that the whole fish, with the vitamin E and antioxidants and being fresh is still a very very healthy meal. It’s only about the pure oils. Be sure to take a lot of vitamin E to prevent lipid oxidation. Fish is essential for good health, just not its oils.
Please be aware of the fact that fermented cod liver oil probably forms an exception to this, but I’m not totally sure.


Anonymous said:

This is a real great and a usefull information


DAVID said:

Despite the benefits described widespread across the community on fish oil, there are also CONVINCING claims along the other way. If you read articles by a respected and experienced medical researcher with contraversial views, name:Ray Peat, he will talk about the benefits of Co2 and other things, yet he also claims that polyunsaturated fats(fish oils) are the worst kind for you. This is based on the reality that polyunsatatated fats degrade into super powerful oxidants in little to no time. These oxidants are 20x more powerful than the normal oxidants like protein or glucose oxidants, they are known (i think) as lipid oxidants. Fish oils are especialy supressive of the immune system, and polyunsaturated fats only occur in living organisms naturally when their environment is so cold they use it as a sort of antifreeze, as it wil oxidise at normal tempertures.


Artour (mod) said:

Not good, better in glass jars or fresh/frozen.


Em said:

Artour what’s your understanding on eating canned food? Does the canning process cause any harming results for human consumption. For eg canned sardines?


hoodanity said:

Egg yolks are very nutrient dense and provide alot of minerals and fat soluble vitamins. More than any other food. The quality of the protein in egg yolks is also very high. There are almost no toxins in it, because it is ideal food where a baby could grow out if it was fertillized.
The cholesterol in egg yolks is only safe when consumed raw. Because your liver can turn cholesterol into bile easily. There is however a limit to cholesterol. More than 8 yolks in one setting is no good for anybody I believe (when I do this i always get nauseated).

There is one big point in this case. The chickens need to be fed a whole variaty of foods, otherwise the omega ratio is too much to the omega 6 side:
Normal eggs ratio: 1 : 10 -15
Omega 3 eggs: 1 : 1 – 1,6

Always go for animal food that can eat their natural foods!

To DrDawn:
3-4 million years ago australopithicus africanus had a slightly larger brain than a chimpanzee and was fully bipedal, how is this not evidence? then you have homo habilis and homo erectus, slowly increasing in brain size.

if that isn’t evidence then what is


DrDawn said:

To Luke:
There is no evidence that man ever had a smaller brain. Some of the myths with respect to this and much more about the unique qualities and characteristics of human life are addressed in “The Truth About Human Origins”. At the time that Man ate only fruits and vegetables (before the Flood), there was also a canopy around the Earth that provided about double the oxygen pressure as compared to the present. The myths of Early Man are largely in the imaginations of pseudo-scientists who tout the complexity of the eye (which collects neuro data for the brain to interpret to produce “sight”), yet in the next breath claim the structure evolved–with what advantages along the way? The system doesn’t produce sight without the integrated function of the parts, so gives no “advantage” to select for such evolution? Microevolution (the variation of genetic expression which, by the way, is influenced by diet through regulatory genes that pseudo-scientists claimed were “junk DNA”–mere “leftovers” from evolutionary changes) does occur, but the assumptions of macroevolution are the result of hyperbole and have actually slowed progress in medical science, as misinformation has been multiplied by voluminous and vociferous arguments that have been not been evidence-based and have led to wrongly-taken forks in the road.

To Artour:
Cholesterol does not “clog” arteries due simply to abundance or in any ratio to abundance. In fact, it has been shown over and over again that, at least among those over 70, the higher the cholesterol, the greater the longevity. Science looks for causation, but our current medical “scientists” mistakenly confuse correlation with causation and make devastatingly wrong conclusions leading to destroyed health. Certain subcategories of cholesterol are used to repair damage in the arterial wall when inflammation is present, such as in the case of inadequate vitamin C and certain amino acids, which are needed to maintain/protect the endothelium/connective tissue of vessels from damage.


Artour (mod) said:

Thank you for info. Many interesting things.
One of the problems is that many modern people get more Candida (and more soiling) after eating fruits.
“oxidized cholesterol causes cardiovascular diseases…” Buteyko found that when his patients ate eggs, butter, beef, etc., their cholesterol was normal as soon as their had over 20 s CP 24/7. When they tried to have zero cholesterol diets, they produced cholesterol in the body naturally and clogged their arteries with it provided that they have less than 20 s CP. And the lower the CP, the more the “bad” cholesterol level. Diet has nothing to do with it.


Luke said:

(Part 3 – the logic)

Why did humans become this powerful?

The dinosaurs ruled the world for millions of years, because they were bigger and stronger than any other animal. Humans aren’t strong, nor fast. Our specialty is intelligence.

How did we become the smartest?

Eating vegetable foods only, approximately 5 million years ago, we were not smarter than other primates. Only when we started combining fruits with animal foods, between 3 and 2 million years ago, the size of our brains rapidly increased.

What made the capacity of our brain increase?

The combination of sugars and cholesterol. Simply because sugars are the main source of energy for the brain, and cholesterol is most essential to the brain for construction purposes.

Fruits contain easy-to-digest sugars, raw animal food contains ‘clean’ cholesterol, and they both contain the required fat and protein. Together these foods contain all nutrients you need, and are ideal to increase brain capacity.

Doesn’t cholesterol cause cardiovascular diseases?

10 to 20% of the brain is composed of cholesterol, containing 40 times more cholesterol than muscles, and 7 to 10 times more than the liver, where cholesterol is produced. If cholesterol is not that essential, or even unhealthy, of course the human body would never produce cholesterol.

Children who received mothers milk, are generally smarter than those who were fed with formula milk, partly because mothers milk contains twice as much cholesterol.


When food is heated in whatever way, some of the cholesterol is oxidized. And oxidized cholesterol causes cardiovascular diseases. Of course nobody tells you this, because drugs that decrease our cholesterol level and performing preventive actions generate billions of dollars.

Why aren’t we advised to consume natural foods only?

The entire economy is based on consuming prepared foods. It is very hard to feed entire armies or cities with natural foods only.

If humans were still consuming natural foods only, the world would be very different today.


Luke said:

(Part 2)

free of excess pesticides or anti-nutrients, this mainly leaves oranges (and all variants like mandarins), bananas, and melons (watermelon, honeydew, etc). As you can see all of these have some things in common, they have very tough protective mechanisms, unlike blackberries or grapes, the peel of a banana, orange, or hard shell of a watermelon is much more protective against pesticides absorbing through the outer layer. Bananas have the advantage of truly ripening off the tree, making it a year long staple food. Oranges tend to vary by location in ripeness, but usually there is a variant, like mandarins, that are sweet and ripe. If it doesn’t taste like candy, don’t eat it.

Fruit does tend to be expensive, the best method to counter act this is to add extra sugar to fruit/fruit juice, and to consume many raw egg yolks per day (6-12). This has to be built up slowly, as people who consume mostly cooked food haven’t adapted to dealing with raw food bacteria.

Ok, now that we’ve covered the mechanics of this, we can go on to the logic behind it.


Luke said:

First of all thank you for giving out such good information for free, I’ve barely skimmed the surface of this site and I get the feeling you’ve condensed more information about breathing in an understandable manner than any of the other bits and pieces about breathing scattered on the Internet. I also get the feeling you genuinely care so I’m going to share my niche findings in the science of health here. Before you think I’m completely nuts, you should take into consideration that I have spent countless hours researching on the Internet (which is what I’m best at) anything and everything about alternative (because mainstream is always outdated or wrong) solutions to optimising health, and it’s taken me years to weed out all of the misconceptions, scams, etc. Also keep in mind I found your site and stopped here recognising it as a golden nugget of information after searching pages of about 700 google searches about back pain, so I must be pretty good at it (ha ha!).

In the area of nutrition and diet, I’ve found through years of Internet research (I’m not a doctor, or certified health person in any way) that the most efficient food for humans is ripe fruit and certain fresh animal egg yolks (mainly chicken for cost effectiveness) and certain fish, like wild caught salmon and tilapia.

Fruits contain easy-to-digest sugars, raw animal food contains ‘clean’ cholesterol, and they both contain the required fat and protein. Together these foods contain all nutrients you need, and are ideal to increase brain capacity. The most concentrated raw animal food, without toxins, is fresh raw egg yolks (not the white, and not the yolk sac) from chickens, and frozen wild caught salmon or tilapia (frozen also means you’re safe from rare parasites). The fish is mainly meant for the omega 3’s.

This kind of diet even takes care of our need for water (so you don’t need to drink any plain water unless you sweat or eat dry foods).

There are of course guidelines for the fruit, mainly that it has to be ripe and free of…
