Time Conscious Living
Atom Bergstrom, born Gosta Ingvar Bergstrom, Jr, is credited as the founder of Sun Sync and the leading expert on a Sun-Centric lifestyle. Atom’s journey towards health, nutrition, longevity, and meditation goes back to 1955, when he first started reading books by D.C. Jarvis, J.I. Rodale, Carlton Fredericks, Adelle Davis, Aldous Huxley, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Prabhavananda, and numerous others. His exposure to the above mentioned authors instigated a deep desire and passion to understand and unlock the secrets to optimal human wellness and longevity. Atom was inspired by the words of Thomas Jefferson: “School teaches all of the branches, but none of the roots.” He sought the answers to his questions, not in classrooms, but in books, relationships, and life experiences. His quest for true knowledge and wisdom began by studying in hundreds of libraries across the country and evolved by studying with teachers and masters including Swami Adano Ley, Sufi Adnan Sarhan, Rabbi Michael Shapiro, Taoist Master Yun Xiang Tseng, and Fitness Icon Gypsy Boots. His most significant teacher was Swami Adano Ley with whom he spent 14 years. During this time, he studied a variety of sciences extensively, including the sun centric lifestyle, and ultimately graduated from Adano Ley’s Texas Institute of Reflex Sciences. The knowledge and wisdom he gained studying under a highly evolved swami combined with his emphasis on scientific research & personal experience would soon become the heartbeat of Sun Sync Nutrition. For the past 40 years, Atom has dedicated his life to the continuous learning and teaching of Sun Sync Nutrition, Time Conscious Eating, Cosmo-Chemistry, Reflexology, Muscle Response Testing, Body Language Analysis, Iris Analysis, Lucid Dreaming, Meditation and many other sciences.

Patrick and Atom Bergstrom discuss Liver Time and Cobalamin Tonic.
Patrick tried Cobalamin Tonic at Liver Time, and was able to focus on his screenplay for six hours straight without interruption.
When is Liver Time? How does it relate to other times of the day?
What is Cobalamin Tonic? What are its ingredients? What are its effects and why are they so dramatic?
What is Solar Nutrition? How does it relate to circadian rhythms?
What is the difference between clock time and local “sundial” time?
Why is carbon dioxide gas so therapeutic? Can it really replace almost all of the painkillers in the world?
How does carbon dioxide stop inflammation? Keratitis? Ulceration? How can it cure paralysis and paraplegia? What are its effects on cancer?
How do you take a carbon dioxide gas bath without any water in the bathtub? What keeps the gas confined to the tub?
Can you buy canisters of carbon dioxide?
What’s the difference between Buteyko Breathing and the external application of carbonic acid in gaseous or liquid form?
How slow do you have to breathe to use Buteyko Breathing for healing?
Is breathing into a paper bag helpful? Is there an ideal time to do it?
Is the extra carbon dioxide we’re breathing the silver lining of being forced to wear face masks? How can rebreathing our own microbiome possibly hurt us? It’s not like a fecal implant.
Is there any time of day when breathing carbon dioxide is counterproductive? What’s the difference between a daytime heart attack and a nighttime one? How do their treatments differ?
Health requires an increase in carbon dioxide, but the Green New Deal is demanding a reduction. What’s wrong with this picture?
Why is carbon dioxide, not oxygen, responsible for breathing? Atom gives an example involving John Connally being wounded during JFK’s assassination.
Why is carbon dioxide the secret of the Diamond Body?
Why does Vibrant Gal prize tomatoes that are pointy at the bottom and carrots that are round on the bottom?
What is an Early Girl tomato? Atom displays one on camera.
Patrick and Atom discuss stretching and lifting weights.
Why does stretching muscles strengthen them? Is connective tissue responsible or is it circulation?
Why do muscles dehydrate? Where does all the water go?
What does the mandible of the jaw have to do with glaucoma? Why is the gall bladder also related to glaucoma?
What’s the difference between tree coffee and bush coffee? Is caffeine a drug or does it help adjust our metabolic rate?
Patrick and Atom delve into the Ray Peat “diet.” Why does Atom think it saved his life?
Atom explains why he cherry-picks from Ray Peat’s information.
The Great Reset wants to be the ultimate arbiter of our health. It doesn’t matter how you personally feel or think you feel.
How can we regain our right to arbitrate our own health? How can we retain our personal autonomy?

Hello Patrick and Atom,
Great show, and very interesting story about the Carbon Dioxide gas. You can buy it in your local welding supplies, it’s used for GMAW, “gas metal arc welding”, and its also the same gas used in the Sodastream machines, and used with beer kegs in your local bar to push the beer along the line and give the beer a froughty head. So its easy to get.
Atom is a great guest and a wealth of knowledge.

Thanks, Anthony! I’ve been doing further research and found this intriguing “blast from the past” (well over 100 years ago) —>
“In the bath-house over Polterbrunnen there are common baths for a number of bathers at one time, and also separate bathtubs. The common baths are two wide, basin-shaped recesses with steps all around the walls, and benches to be occupied by the bathers. The single bathtubs are about one meter deep, also with benches of graduated height. In the bathtubs, as well as in the common bath-basins, the bathers remain with their clothes on, the gas at once penetrating the clothing and acting on the skin.”

With the oranges, Tony P used to say to eat the white pith on the orange for the bioflavinoids in it.
March 25, 2021 @ 5:29 pm Atom
Be careful of the white pith. I don’t swallow the pith on my oranges because it’s a common source of phytobezoars, not too far behind persimmons. I’m also not convinced that bioflavonoids are orange’s best attribute since green oranges are richest in them. Some authorities regard the white bioflavonoid-containing sections of tomatoes, green peppers, and citrus fruits as toxic.

Atom mentioned three competing theories of Pasteur and Bechamp but the third one I couldn’t make it out who in the audio?
March 25, 2021 @ 5:48 pm Atom
The three theories are …
1) The Terrain Theory of Drs. Cowan and Kaufman
2) The Terrain Theory of Prof. Antoine Béchamp
3) The Germ Theory of Ignaz Semmelweis
Dr. Louis Pasteur “borrowed” most of his theories from prior researchers. Even Prof. Béchamp accused him of plagiarizing his ideas, increasing the enmity between them.

Atom, you’re a treasure! I’ve learned SO much listening to you. Please thank Vibrant Girl for the tomato and carrot tip. You are so spot on regarding today’s madness. Many, many thanks to you and for you. Peace.

Thank you, Linda !!!!! <3

When during the day and for how long do you want to breathe into a bag for CO2? Is this a therapy that can be done daily?
