Why Is Snow Your Friend?
In a recent blog post I wrote that snow will be one of my greatest allies in my relocation to avoid the problems ahead facing high population areas. I was asked about it so I put together a few thoughts regarding why I am transitioning from an area with lots of sun to another with lots of snow.
Snow is an ally for a number of reasons:
- Cold adaptation: Where there is snow there is cold. Cold adaptation benefits mitochondria tremendously. Cold generates heat inside mitochondria, and heat is light. When you become cold adapted you rely more on your inner mitochondrial light. We run on light either from the outside (sun) or inside (electrons aka the mini suns inside your cells). Cold condenses the electron chain within the mitochondria. This means you get more light output in less trips across the electron chain because the distance has decreased. In other words, you get a higher electromagnetic output in the cold because it is required since you are not getting as much charge from the sun. Sunlight is natural EMF frequencies. Unnatural frequencies from Starlink satellites compete with natural frequencies from the sun.
-Snow is water and water is a great EMF blocker. If you have a bunch of frequencies coming down from the sky (such as Starlink), it helps to have a foot of snow on your roof. I was able to find a home with a finished bedroom in the basement, so I'll be underground and that ground will be covered in snow a large portion of each year.
- Were there is snow there is water, so that removes any concern of water scarcity. I currently live on the CA central coast where drought is a major concern. Nestle has bought up all the water resources in CA. In a state with such a high population and record drought, I see this as a major threat into the future.
- People want to be comfortable, so the more snow you have the less likely there is to be large populations. Low population equates to a lower power grid. When people tell me they would never want to move where I am headed I just smile as that is my hope.
For all these reasons I think living in snow instead vs lots of sun is a better solution in our current global environment, and trust me when I say I do value the sun. Naturally, this will require certain diet adjustments as well. People in cold climates must eat lots of fish (primarily for dha), fat (stable hydrogens) and be low carb in order to properly adapt to cold environments optimally.
Remember that the body has evolved for either hot (high sun) living or cold (high snow) living. Everyone in between should be living seasonally. Plants eat light convert it into sugars. No light, no sugar. This is important to know in cold areas. Eating foods that come from the environment you live in is ideal. Food is ultimately made from light and light is information about your outside environment that is absorbed internally and processed by your gut. No bananas for people in a snowy environments.
DHA from fish interacts with light in the body, either light collected from the sun or light generated from the mitochondria. So eat lots of fish in cold areas. No coincidence that cold water fish don't live in hot areas.
It is also worth noting that living in the snow and the cold is hard. Our bodies are designed to adapt to difficult circumstances to be strong and fit. If you don't use it you lose it so if you want the ability to overcome hardship, expose yourself to hardship. The body never builds callouses in places that don't get used. Maybe comfort isn't the highest goal in life after all.
What do people do in LA that want to be healthy? They go to cryo-therapy (cold exposure) tanks. They go on pseudo keto diets with powdered ketones. They work out at the gym for 3 hours a day. What do people do to be healthy in the snow? They go out in the cold (cold adaptation) and shovel (exercise), then come home and eat fat and fish (keto).
I am raising a five year old. I try to teach him that getting stuff in the form of gifts is nice but earning stuff is even better. There are no cheats in life. If you are unwilling to do the work you don't deserve the benefit. Sacrifice is always required for true rewards to be enjoyed.

Great post, my husband and I are researching places to move. We have been looking at properties in Idaho but I was concerned about the snow. After reading this I’m liking the idea even more! Do you mind sharing what state you are moving to?

Thanks so much for the comment. I will send you my move location privately.
