Juice increases vividness of dreams?
PostPosted: Wed 03 Dec, 2008  Reply with quote

My aunt directed me to the website of this guy Steve Pavlina. He is a personal growth guru or something but the first thing I noticed on his blog is that he recently did a 92 day juice feast experiment which resulted in especially vivid dreams, amongst other things.
Steve Pavlina wrote:
Early in my juice feast, I reported that my dreams became incredibly vivid and that they seemed much longer. Upon awakening I’d often feel like I’d spent a couple days in an alternate reality.

This hasn’t changed at all. The dream upgrade continued throughout the juice feast and beyond. Last night I had such incredible dreams. I never imagined that dreams could be so rich and detailed.

Anyone prepared to give it a go?

My aunt also mentioned that he's into Lucid Dreaming. I will pass on any interesting posts if and when I find them.

I read that too awhile back...

Steve's wife Erin got him into lucid dreams. You can find a link to her blog on his site, I think. She is into LD's, AP's, and she's a psychic medium. In fact, I first heard about ld4all on their forum.

I had a run-in with some orange juice that gave me some pretty wicked and vivid dreams but it seems more likely it was just a coincidence? Maybe I should run an experiment to test this out.

I have an audio I downloaded from them, recorded from when they were talking about LDs on radio, I think.

Yes, I've also read a few articles on Pavlina's website, which inspired me to try polyphasic sleeping.

Regarding juice... now that it has been mentioned, I've been drinking purely organic juice (along with occasional snacks) since mid October and I have noticed a significant increase in my dream recall and vividness.

Let's try this. I'm willing to trial a juice-feast in the name of science. smile

You should put this in the Lucid Lab, it would make a good experiment, definitely worth trying.

I'm not prepared to give up solid food altogether (even for super vivid dreams) but I wouldn't mind knowing if the introduction of fresh juice to my diet would significantly increase vividness...

haha, how long can you live off stricltly juice? cause i'm totally willing to give this a go. and giving up solid food for a shor time is ok with me, as long as it's not uncomfortable.

Steve Pavlina went 3 months, but presumably you could go indefinitely if it suited you...

Wait, Tomothy...

Steve Pavlina only made it through one month. He planned to go 3 months, 92 days, but aborted the program after day 31.

(Sounds gravely challenging. And expensive.)

No problem at all. I thought for a moment I was missing something myself when the updates stopped at Day 31. But, it was Steve that was missing something. About 61 days of something...

I think what we need to do is assess Pavlina's errors and correct them in our own experiments. I recall him mentioning not getting enough fat in his juice feast. Perhaps introducing an almond-soy protein shake could properly solve the problem. (A chocolate-soy blend sounds great, too.) Barley and wheat grass can be blended with the juices, also. You know, to fit in those grains and whatnot....

Do they recommend a certain juice ?, like orange juice over apple juice or w/e ?

I might give this a try, a glass of juice at night before bed doesn't sound bad

@Kurei: In this instance what they are talking about is considerably more than a glass of juice before bed. It seems to be juice, and only juice, for three months. As to what kinds of juice, I'm not sure...

Steve linked to another website about <mod>link to seller removed - read guidelines </mod>.

But if you just want to try juice before bed I don't see why you couldn't turn it into a personal experiment. Double-o-darko posted above about having vivid dreams post orange juice drinking so that might be a good place to start?
