Scary masked doctor known as Dr. Death
By Mary Joyce, website editor

Dr. Schnabel was scary looking.  He dressed in a head-to-ankle dark overcoat, boots, gloves, a hat, a bird-beak face mask and round eye spectacles.  Yet, everyone wanted him to come to their town.  Somehow, he was able to help victims of the deadly bubonic plague that hit Rome in the 17th Century yet never succumbed to it himself.

The bird-beak mask was designed to keep the doctor from inhaling the foul-smelling air that was thought to spread the disease.  It also was filled with scented medicinal herbs to further protect the doctor and to reduce offensive odors.
 
Though Dr. Schnabel was dedicated to saving lives, he became known as “Dr. Death” because he worked among the masses of sick and dying victims of the plague.  Of course, he and other doctors couldn’t save them all; it’s estimated that 1,250,000 Romans died during that plague.

 

 


 

Vitamin D might save your life

According to an article in “Healthline” published on September 13, 2020, University of Chicago Medicine researchers found a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and risk of developing COVID-19.

The research team led by Dr. David Meltzer, the university’s chief of hospital medicine,  studied 489 patients at the hospital and observed that those with a vitamin D deficiency were almost twice as likely to test positive for the coronavirus than those with normal levels of vitamin D.

On a personal note, I have taken 5000 IU of vitamin D every day for more than 20 years and have not had a cold or flu during that time, so I am convinced that taking the tiny capsule every day is a good idea. - The editor

 


 

Did you fall for these bogus COVID-19 stories?

COVID-19 conspiracies stampede through the Internet like spooked herds of cattle. Seldom do we know who starts them yet too many people blindly accept them as truth.

But if we want truth to prevail, we need to take time to track down the source of news stories on the Internet, especially on social media platforms, and make sure they are real. Here are two examples of COVID-19 conspiracy claims that have proven to be false. – The editor


CONSPIRACY CLAIM: Why does the COVID-19 testing facility have a logo of Anubis the God of Death? This question, which appeared on QAnon message boards and Facebook, sounds like a terrible in-your-face sign of evil. The question and image also were linked to Satanism.

TRUTH:  The image is actually an aardvark which is the logo for Aardvark Tours. When the owner of the company learned shipping containers were being used as COVID-19 testing sites, he took steps to design and build a mobile testing vehicle.  Florida’s Emergency Management liked his idea and now his vehicle is being used for walk-up testing in Miami. The company plans to build more mobile testing units.

CONSPIRACY CLAIM: Hydroxychloroquine is a cure for COVID-19 and protective masks aren’t necessary according to Dr. Stella Immanuel.

TRUTH:  Beyond mainstream doctors, hospitals and medical research centers dismissing her claims as false, Dr. Stella Immanuel has a questionable medical background. · Her degree is from the University of Calabar which ranks 37th among all universities in Nigeria. · The Guild of Medical Directors of Nigeria has declared her claims to be totally unsubstantiated. · She also has her own YouTube channel.  In many of her 140 videos, she blames demons, witches, spirits and aliens for a host of health problems. 

To check out her videos for yourself, type
Dr. Stella Immanuel channel in YouTube’s search bar.

IT’S WORTH NOTING that the doctors who appeared with Dr. Immanuel on July 27, 2020 in front of the Supreme Court Building are questionable too.  They are known as America’s Frontline DoctorsAccording to MedPage Today, which is an accredited medical news service, the group registered its website on July 16, 2020 and de-activated it on July 28, 2020; none of group have worked on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic; and some of them do not have an active medical license.

 

 

 


Amy June with her boyfriend Zac

Young people’s health ruined by COVID-19

Healthy young people are more likely to survive COVID-19, BUT too many of them are left with long-term health problems - and their stories aren’t usually reported.  This is one of those stories. It was posted by Amy June, a 27-year-old athlete, on her Facebook page.  We’ve shortened it and added boldfacing to encourage more people to read her story. – The editor


On March 25, I tested positive for COVID-19. . . My symptoms started with a very simple dry cough (literally didn’t think anything of it) but then it progressed to chest congestion and finally the killer of shortness of breath. . . By DAY THREE of having symptoms, I knew something wasn’t right. . . The chest congestion and dry cough lasted about a week. Once those symptoms were gone, they were replaced with chest pain, upper back pain (like the worst ever), loss of taste and smell and of course, the ever-lingering shortness of breath.

After having my symptoms for TWO WEEKS with no real improvement, I established care with a Primary Care Physician who prescribed an inhaler. Fun fact, it doesn’t help. By WEEK THREE, I had muscle aches SO bad in my legs that I could barely walk. . . I was sent to the emergency room and got CT scans done of my chest, abdomen and legs; an EKG was performed and labs were drawn.

The ER doctor said he was checking me for blood clots, kidney failure and heart failure. Let me just repeat that ONE MORE TIME, I am 27 years old and they were checking me for blood clots, kidney failure and heart failure due to COVID-19.  It was the scariest two hours.

. . . Most of my tests came back great except my CT of my chest which essentially showed scarring of my lungs. My new reality is that I am 27 years old, with scarring of my lungs and continued shortness of breath.

I was a runner, mountain biker, avid rock climber, personal trainer, back country hiker and always full of adventure. My reality now is that walking over two miles kills me. Biking is impossible. I tried doing 10 squats the other day and my heart rate went to 147.

. . . My active life is light years behind me. My lungs are hurt and no one has answers. I have had incredible care from my team of doctors and specialist but the reality of it is, no one can give me any answers. Will I ever go back to normal? We don’t know. Will I ever not have shortness of breath? We don’t know. Will I need an inhaler forever? We don’t know. The unknowns are inevitable but fill me with fear. . .

I understand there is a 98% survival rate. I understand most cases aren’t hospitalized. I understand that the “low death toll” is leading people to believe this is all being played up and they want to re-open the state. But what no one else seems to understand, because it is NEVER talked about, is that although we are “recovering” from COVID we are left with side effects that could change our lives forever.

I’m not asking, I am begging you to stay at home. I’m begging you to stop making uneducated Facebook posts about how this is just a “stupid virus.” It’s not. That stupid virus changed my life for good. I am begging you to keep your distance from others. I am BEGGING you to wear a mask.

This whole “my body, my choice” doesn’t apply here. It has nothing to do with your body. It has to do with the wellness of others. If I see you without a mask on, I just assume that you’ve decided you’re okay with potentially killing someone. Scarring their lungs. Sending them into heart failure or kidney failure. Giving them the same reality as me.

A LOT of people don’t show symptoms. Zac has been with me the whole time - 44 days. He has NO SYMPTOMS and I am so thankful for that but guess what? He’s most definitely an asymptomatic carrier. What that means is even though he looks great and feels great, he could be shedding the virus, and he’s not the only one. This isn’t just a stupid virus. It goes SO much deeper than that and I am begging you to understand that. It’s a silent killer. You can’t see it, some people don’t even feel it, but it’s real.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Our cursory research indicates lung scarring cannot be reversed, so we all need to heed Amy’s warnings.

 


 

Mad scientists blamed monkeys for virus
By Mary Joyce, website editor

Explanation for this article: After posting “Coronavirus created in laboratory” in our “Deep Throat Testimonies” section, I decided to share one of my own experiences which helps support the whistleblower’s testimony.


I began to learn about the dark side of viruses and vaccinations about 25 years ago from Dr. JoAnne Whitaker, a medical doctor with incredible credentials.  As a friend, she confided the truth with me about HIV/AIDS.  If I were doing this website back then, I would have recorded her testimony and taken photos of the evidence she shared with me and Evelyn Gordon, co-founder of this website.


She told me HIV was created in a lab and was deliberately let loose on the world through the World Health Organization (WHO). She said the organization first released the virus in Africa, so it was easy to blame the Mangabey monkeys as the source of the disease.

Then she pulled out a copy of the Congressional Record from some time in the late 1970s. I wish I had photographed the page she showed us.  It stated that Congress had authorized funding for the development of something that sounded just like AIDS.  A few years later, the disease entered the USA and was officially named AIDS in 1982. 


The source of information like this is important
, so here are just a few highlights from Dr. Whitaker’s medical career:

· She received her doctorate from Bowman Gray School of Medicine.  · She completed fellowship programs in pediatrics, hematology, oncology, nutrition and psychiatry.  · She taught at seven different medical schools and started a medical school in Thailand and training programs for physicians in Vietnam. · She developed an accurate test for Lyme disease. · She established and was the medical director for the first Hospice in Florida. · She received many awards including the American Medical Society’s Distinguished Service Award.


Dr. Whitaker was always one to put others in front of the camera, not herself, so photos of her are hard to find. The one above is from her obituary in the News Chief news- paper in Winter Haven, Florida.

The photo to the right was taken in 2001 when she spoke at the Academy of Biological Dentistry about “Stealth Pathogens in Humans.”

 

 


 

Coronavirus whistleblower’s protection advice

EDITOR’S NOTE: The whistleblower who told us how Coronavirus was created in a BSL-4 laboratory sent us the following advice on how to protect ourselves from it. You can find his initial warning in the “Deep Throat Testimonies” section of this website.


· “If someone is in an environment where Coronavirus (COVID-19) is suspected, the general rule is to wash hands every 10 minutes and, of course, avoid touching the face.”

· “AVOID medical facilities unless absolutely necessary. Should any person believe he is infected, go to a facility for testing, wear a mask, wash hands like a maniac and then self-quarantine.


· “AVOID public transportation - buses, airplanes, cruise ships – and recent international travelers.”

· “COVID-19 was designed to target certain demographic groups, so it’s best to AVOID tawdry places where drug addicts, prostitutes and gangs might hang out. However, the virus already has and is mutating.

· “OLIVE LEAF is a powerful ingredient to significantly decrease COVID-19 if it enters the body. The combination of OLIVE LEAF and OREGANO OIL can be of significant benefit.”

· “Use COMFREY SALVE externally like you would apply old-timey Vicks VapoRub.”

· “HAND SANTITIZERS will NOT do anything against COVID-19.  They might even work against people if they use them instead of washing hands.”

· “A mask rated N95, is what we consider a minimal protection mask to wear in a suspected area. One rated P95 is better. One rated P100 is the best.

“In an active infected area, one needs a mask that seals on all sides and filters very small particulate. This means it must fit tightly and thus be a bit uncomfortable to wear.”

“FOR MEN: No mask will do any good against COVID-19 unless you are clean shaven. This is not a good time for beards. Males are one of the primary demographics being targeted.”

· “Eye coverings such as ski goggles also would be necessary in an infected area.”

· “One can bet that if a COVID-19 vaccine is released it will be filled with all sorts of nasty stuff.”

 

 

 


 

A land where the people
NEVER get cancer
By Mary Joyce, website editor

There’s one place in the world where people live long and healthy lives and NEVER get cancer.  That magical place is the Hunza region of the high Himalayan Mountains, wedged between China, India, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Doctors, nutritionists, researchers and journalists have traveled to this seemingly utopian place in search of the ancient kingdom’s magical elixir. 

What they discovered is that the Hunza people eat apricots and apricot kernels every day and credit their good health to that fruit.

One of the curious doctors who trekked to the remote Himalayan kingdom, Dr. Allen E. Banik, later wrote a book titled “Hunza Land” in which he said:

My first experience with Hunza apricots, fresh from the tree, came when my guide picked several, washed them in a mountain stream, and handed them to me.  I ate the luscious fruit and casually tossed the seeds to the ground.  After an incredulous glance at me, one of the older men stooped and picked up the seeds.  He cracked them between two stones, and handed them to me.

The guide said with a smile, “Eat them. It is the best part of the fruit.” My curiosity aroused, I asked, “What do you do with the seeds you do not eat?”

The guide informed me that many are stored, but most of them are ground very fine and then squeezed under pressure to produce a very rich oil. “This oil,” my guide claimed, “looks much like olive oil.  Sometimes we swallow a spoonful of it when we need it.  On special days, we deep-fry our chappatis (bread) in it.  On festival nights, our women use the oil to shine their hair.  It makes a good rubbing compound for body bruises.”


Apricot orchard in the Hunza Kingdom (circled on map) which is now part of Pakistan

With Hunza elders often living beyond the century mark, why are apricot kernels so disparaged in the West?  Yes, it’s true that when the kernels are chewed and digested, the amygdalin (B17) in them is converted to cyanide, which is a poison. 

But, according to a 2013 study published in International Scholarly Research Notices: Toxicology, a 160-pound person would need to eat 1,150 apricot kernels in one day to get the amount of cyanide necessary to be poisoned.

The real reason apricot seeds are maligned is all about making money according to G. Edward Griffin, author of “World Without Cancer.” 

“With billions of dollars spent each year in research,” Griffin explains, “with additional billions taken in from the cancer-related sale of drugs, and with vote-hungry politicians promising ever-increasing government programs, today, there are more people making a living from cancer than dying from it. If the (cancer) riddle were to be solved by a simple vitamin, this gigantic commercial and political industry could be wiped out overnight.”

In an effort to prevent the public from learning about possible health benefits of apricot kernels, doctor’s careers have been threatened or destroyed; information seminars and websites have been shut down; bogus information has been widely spread even by organizations and institutions that people so often turn to for accurate data.

“This is happening in a land which boasts of freedom and whose symbol is the Statue of Liberty,” Griffin says.

 

 


Encourage restaurants to help save our oceans 
By Mary Joyce, website editor


If we all stop using plastic straws will that really un-strangle our oceans? I doubt it!  So, I started looking for companies that produce biodegradable plastics.

That proved to be a disappointing solution.  Yes, these will breakdown in composting facilities where there is a cocktail of oxygen, organic substrate and temperatures of at least 140 degrees.  However, biodegradable plastics that wash into the oceans or pileup in landfills will stick around for a very long time.  It can take 1000 years to breakdown a fork that is labeled “biodegradable.”


But there is another solution: COMPOSTABLE products and packaging that will decompose along with food garbage. 

BELOW is a list of a few companies that make compostable products.
There are more.

I encourage everyone to share this information with restaurant owners in your town and also send it to corporate headquarters for national chain restaurants.

Most relaxing/healing tune ever recorded
By Mary Joyce, website editor

Music can improve medical outcomes and quality of life in a variety of ways according to an article in Harvard Women’s Health Watch published on November 5, 2015.

The school’s research studies have shown that people undergoing invasive procedures (colonoscopies, cardiac angiography, knee surgery) are less stressed and need lower amounts of sedatives and painkillers when relaxing music is played before, during and after the medical procedures.

Music also is helpful to cancer patients because it reduces their anxiety as well as nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Actual singing, rather than just background music, has proven helpful in restoring speech to those recovering from strokes or traumatic brain injuries.  After a gunshot wound left U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords unable to speak, music therapy was key in reclaiming her ability to speak.

Music improves the quality of life for dementia patients even into the late stages of the disease.  It reduces their agitation, helps them recall memories, assists with communication and improves physical coordination.



Based on the research of Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson (above right) with Mindlab International, the tune “Weightless” by Marconi Union is the most relaxing tune every recorded.  Brain imaging has shown that the tune works in the deep regions of the brain associated with processing sound and emotions.  He cautions people not to listen to it while driving.

CLICK HERE to listen to “Weightless.”

While this tune is at the top of Dr. Lewis-Hodgson’s list, any music with pure tones and a rhythm in sync with the human heart can be almost as effective – and certainly preferred as background music if you want or need to stay alert.  The choices are endless.  Relaxing and healing vibrations can be found in many genres including aboriginal flute melodies from around the globe, smooth jazz, Caribbean music, and some classical, soft rock and country music.  BUT, loud music with dissonant sounds has quite the opposite effect.  Researchers like Dr. Katrina McFerran with the University of Melbourne have found that heavy metal music may contribute to the rise in depression among young people today.

 

 


 


ER technician’s bombshell about flu shots

After 20 years as an emergency room technician at an Atlanta hospital, Lori Ciminelli dropped a BOMBSHELL on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on October 25, 2018.  

She told the CDC committee that she and her colleagues (doctors, nurses, lab techs) don’t believe in the efficacy of flu shots. She also said she never took flu shots and never got the flu because she knew how to wash her hands and took vitamin D and elderberry syrup.

Surprising reasons for low testosterone in men


The following information is from an article by William Rawls, MD, titled “Six surprising factors that cause low testosterone in men.” 

Dr. Rawls (R) graduated from Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University and holds his medical license in North Carolina.

He has written extensively on health topics such as Lyme disease, fibromyalgia and Chronic Immune Dysfunction and has contributed to various health websites.  He also is the author of two books - “Suffering Long Enough” and “Unlocking Lyme.”


“Why are males all over the country suffering from low testosterone?” writes Dr. William Rawls.  “Healthy human males should maintain normal reproductive function until the day they die. Low male testosterone levels are a strong indicator of poor health. . .

“So, what do we do for all these guys who have lost their mojo? We can start by looking for the causes of low male testosterone. . . Here are the six primary factors that contribute to low testosterone.”

(1) Refined carbohydrates – “Our entire food supply is now saturated with processed carbohydrates. The habit of a bowl of cereal with cow’s milk for breakfast, a burger and bun with fries for lunch, and pasta for supper leads to chronic elevation in insulin secretion from the pancreas. . . Elevated insulin disrupts central hormone pathways in the body, which suppresses testosterone production, and it takes about a year of strict carbohydrate rationing to restore insulin secretion back to normal.”

(2) Hormones in meat – “Hormones are heavily used in the beef, pork, and dairy industries. If you're a modern meat and potatoes kind of guy, it may be contributing to the loss of your manhood. . . When you eat meat, insist on grass-fed hormone-free meat and dairy.”

(3) Xenoestrogens – “There are thousands of man-made chemicals present in the environment that were not here a hundred years ago, and many of them have estrogen-like activity. Exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA and phthalates have been demonstrated to lower testosterone levels at all ages and even jeopardize the onset of puberty in young boys. Eating organic foods is one of the best ways to avoid them.”

(4) Estrogens in your water – “Estrogens (derived from women taking pharmaceuticals containing synthetic estrogens) are showing up in municipal water supplies. . .  The best protection against estrogen-contaminated drinking water is installing a reverse-osmosis filtering system in your drinking water, or buying filtered water.”

(5) Stress – “If you're constantly under stress, your reproductive ability is likely suffering. Chronic stress raises cortisol levels, which suppresses central hormone pathways. This suppresses reproductive hormone secretion, including that of testosterone. Stress has also been shown to block testosterone from having an effect on your body.”

(6) Beer – “Moderate alcohol consumption has been found to decrease testosterone levels by up to 6.8%. Believe it or not, the hops in most types of beer have estrogen-like properties and can adversely affect testosterone. In fact, the estrogenic properties in hops are so strong that they are currently being studied as a treatment for hot flashes in menopausal women. This is another reason to avoid having a beer belly!”

~~~~~~~

If you are considering having your testosterone levels checked, have your blood drawn between 7 am and 10 am when your testosterone levels peak. Otherwise, the test may come back falsely low. . .

“If testosterone levels do come back low, consider the long-term consequences before you start taking a prescription. Using testosterone replacement may not only increase your risk of stroke, but it could also increase your risk of prostate cancer. In addition, using testosterone will further suppress natural testosterone production.

“This means the response you get from using testosterone will likely be short lived.
A better option is changing your health habits. It might take a year or two to get things back to normal, but your testosterone levels can be revived.”

 

 


 

Are humans being cloned illegally?

Below are five photos of successfully cloned animals. Though the UN General Assembly adopted a Declaration on Human Cloning prohibiting all forms of human cloning, there is evidence it has and is continuing to be done.



Masha the Mouse
was the first successfully cloned mammal. Dolly the Sheep was the first mammal cloned from adult DNA.  She is shown with her first-born lamb, Bonnie. Twin Baby Monkeys were born from cloned embryos.


The world’s first Cloned Camel was born in Dubai.  This Cloned Foal was born in Italy.

There are many hard-to-prove claims that human cloning has been going on for many years in secret underground military/government facilities.  But indications of human cloning can be found above ground too. Back on March 3, 2009, The Telegraph in the UK posted the following article.

Italian doctor claims he cloned three babies

An Italian doctor known for helping post-menopausal women to have children has claimed to have cloned three babies who are now living in eastern Europe.



"I helped give birth to three children with the human cloning technique,"
Severino Antinori, a gynaecologist, told Oggi weekly in an interview Wednesday.

"It involved two boys and a girl who are nine years old today.
They were born healthy and they are in excellent health now."

Mr Antinori did not provide proof of his claims, but said cells from the three fathers, all of whom were sterile, allowed the cloning to be carried out.

The women's eggs were impregnated in a laboratory through a method called "nuclear transfer," he said.

Mr Antinori, who became famous after he helped a 63-year-old woman to have a child in 1994, declined to give further details, saying: "Respect for the families' privacy does not allow me to go further."

He added that the method used was "an improvement" over the technique used to clone Dolly the sheep in 1996.

Reminded by the journalist that such cloning is prohibited in Italy, which is predominantly Catholic, the doctor said he preferred to "speak of innovative therapies" or "genetic recoding" rather than cloning.

Two weeks ago, Mr Antinori sparked controversy by announcing that he would artificially impregnate a woman whose husband is in an irreversible coma following a brain tumour.
It would be the first procedure of its kind in Italy if successful.

SEVERINO ANTINORI’S BIO:  According to editors of the Encyclopedia Britannica, Antinori was born in 1945 in Teramo, Italy.  He studied medicine at the University of Rome specializing in gastroenterology.  Later he shifted to obstetrics and gynecology. He worked at various hospitals and institutions in Italy and then established his own clinic. In 1987, he founded International Associated Research Institute for Human Reproduction in Rome.

 

 

 


 

< I’m not losing my memory.
   I’m living in the now.

According to alzheimers.net, more than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease and the number keeps increasing.  So, a cure recently discovered in a lab is encouraging. 

Below is an excerpt from an article about that discovery which was published in Science Daily on April 9, 2018.


Alzheimer’s cure working in lab studies

Using human brain cells, scientists at the Gladstone Institutes discovered the cause of -- and a potential solution for -- the primary genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, a gene called apoE4.

“Having one copy of the apoE4 gene more than doubles a person's likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease, and having two copies of the gene increases the risk by 12-fold, as compared to the most common version of the gene, apoE3 (good gene).

“The apoE4 gene creates a protein of the same name. The apoE4 protein differs from the apoE3 protein at only one point, but that single change is enough to alter its main structure and, thus, its function. Scientists have been unclear about why apoE4 is so much more damaging to brain cells than other versions of the protein.

“In a new study published in Nature Medicine, researchers revealed how apoE4 confers its risk for Alzheimer's disease in human brain cells. What's more, they were able to erase the damage caused by apoE4 by changing it, with a small molecule, into a harmless apoE3-like version. . .

“Treating human apoE4 neurons with a structure corrector eliminated the signs of Alzheimer's disease, restored normal function to the cells, and improved cell survival. Huang* is now working with his collaborators in academia and the pharmaceutical industry to improve the compounds so they can be tested in human patients in the future.”

* Yadong Huang, MD, PhD, is a senior investigator and director of the Center for Translational Advancement at Gladstone Institutes, an independent and nonprofit biomedical research organization.

 

 


 

Cannabis commonly used in ancient Egypt

We found it interesting that cannabis was commonly used in ancient Egypt according to an article published by “Ancient Origins” on March 17, 2017.  Below are excerpts from that article which was written by Robert Brusco. – The editor

“Cannabis is widely considered to be one of the most widespread options when it comes to medicinal herbs. However, in ancient times the plant’s popularity was far greater. . .  

“Ancient Egyptians had uncovered and used the medicinal properties of cannabis even beyond what modern medical science has been able to do so far.

The Ebers Papyruswas written roughly around 1550 BC and is one of the oldest finished medical textbooks to have been found so far. It mentions a number of formulas which make use of hemp to alleviate pain and inflammation caused by various diseases and injuries. Apparently, women in particular used marijuana as a way to waive off depression and other psychological problems in the early days of Egypt. . .

“The oldest medicinal use of the herb in the region may date back even further, to 2000 BC, when it might have been used to treat glaucoma, cataracts, hemorrhoids, vaginal bleeding, and even cancer. . .
 
“When the mummy of Pharaoh Ramesses II was uncovered and examined back in 1881, traces of cannabis in the remains was the last thing anyone was expecting, but it was there. Since then, a lot of the uncovered mummies have shown similar traces of the herb in their systems, confirming the suspicion that cannabis was indeed a part of the regular culture in ancient Egypt. . .

Seshat, the goddess of wisdom (R), was often depicted with a leaf of the cannabis plant above her head in paintings from thousands of years ago. . . Evidence also suggests that worshippers may have consumed marijuana in one form or the other during certain religious festivities and rituals. . .”

 

 

 


Immediate backlash from lack of sleep

“Humans cannot live without sleep and will suffer from some
immediate backlash if they ignore the primal urge to shut their eyes.”
- Alliance for Natural Health
January 2, 2018

Neuroscientist Dr. Claudia Aguirre reports that 30% of adults and 66% of adolescents are not getting enough sleep (7-8 hours/night) which results in daytime sleepiness, slower reflexes, poor concentration and increased risk of car accidents.

Long-term sleep deprivation can increase health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, susceptibility to illnesses and even weight gain.

There are many safe and natural ways to help you fall asleep that easily can be found on the Internet but this may be one you haven’t heard about.

According to a Baylor University study, writing a TO-DO LIST at bedtime may aid in falling asleep. Research compared sleep patterns of participants who took five minutes to write down upcoming duties versus participants who chronicled completed activities.

Preliminary research indicates that offloading thoughts and worries onto paper before bed reduces worry and may make it easier to fall asleep.

 

 

 


 

Solution for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


War veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) found significant relief by practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) according to a new study published in the December 29, 2017 issue of “Military Medicine.”  Reduction of symptoms was so great that 80% of the participants no longer were considered to have the disorder.


“It’s remarkable that after just one month we would see such a pronounced decrease in symptoms, with four out of five veterans no longer considered to have a serious problem with PTSD,” said the lead author Robert Herron.

Participants were taught the standardized TM method formulated by the late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (R) who founded Transcendental Meditation. It is reported that he taught his techniques to more than 5 million followers.

In the late 1960s and 1970s he became known in the West as the guru of celebrities including the Beatles, Donovan and Mike Love of the Beach Boys.       

 

 


 

Why has the flu hit so hard this year?
By Mary Joyce, website editor

“This year’s flu shot may not be up to the task,” according to Dr. Pardis Sabeti on CBS-TV and in a follow-up CBS article on December 5, 2017.

“It is the same formulation that was used during Australia's most recent flu season - which typically sets a pattern for what the U.S. will face - and it was only 10 percent effective there.”

Nevertheless, she feels 10% is better than none, and personally gets the flu shot.



A simple explanation
for the ineffectiveness of this season’s flu shot is well summarized by Katherine Ellen Foley in her article for the “Quartz” website:

“The annual flu vaccine development process begins several months before each flu season.  In February, a global group of researchers meets at the World Health Organization to identify three or four strains of the influenza virus they think will infect folks in the northern hemisphere, based on what made people sick in the southern hemisphere’s most recent flu season.

“This approach usually provides effective coverage from the flu for most vaccine recipients – well, 40 to 60% of the time, which is pretty good as far as vaccine coverage goes.  The trouble is, the make-up of the viruses can change in the blink of the eye, because virus strains constantly mutate.  Although researchers have clues about what a virus did previously, they’re usually guessing what specific changes will happen next.”


Rima A. Laibow, MD
, Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation, has a much grimmer view of flu shots.  She believes vaccinations are “weaponized” to weaken the population so profits will increase for the pharmaceutical industry.

She says “the pseudo-science touted by Big Pharma-funded outlets like the ‘New England Journal of Medicine’ is unworthy of trust.”

Dr. Laibow also believes much of the media is in cahoots with the pharmaceutical industry and help promote its “pseudo-science” and help frighten people into getting the flu shot.

She may be correct about the sinister side of flu shots. We were able to get a list of ingredients in last year’s flu shots from the “Passport to Health” website and found three very toxic ingredients which are in boldface type below.

● Flu Strain A/(Michigan) (H1N1)
● Flu Strain A/(Hong Kong) (H3N2)
● Flu Strain B/(Brisbane)
● Flu Strain B/(Phuket)
● Formaldehyde
● Aluminum Salts
● Gelatin
● Thimerosal (Mercury)
● Chicken Egg Proteins
● Antibiotics

It’s fairly well known that heavy metals like aluminum and mercury can be detrimental to one’s health.  As for formaldehyde, it is found in glues, adhesives, pressed-wood furniture and embalming fluid.  According to the “HealthLine” website, it is “linked to eye and throat irritation, breathing trouble and a higher risk for certain cancers.”

 

 

 


 

The five side effects of kindness


David

David R. Hamilton has a PhD in organic chemistry and spent four years in the pharmaceutical industry developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people on how they can harness their minds and emotions to improve their health.

He's written nine books including three bestsellers: “Your Mind Can Heal Your body,” “I Heart Me” and his most recent book “The Five Side Effects of Kindness” which was published in 2017.


Kindness is more important than ever in a world increasingly divisive. It’s just too easy to anonymously hurl insults through the Internet or from cars.  It’s too easy to see the world as “them” versus “us” and then throw harsh words or even stones at anyone who is different or has opinions unlike our own.  That’s why messages like Hamilton’s are so important today.

The introduction to Hamilton’s book on Amazon states: “Scientific evidence has proven that kindness changes the brain, impacts the heart and immune system, is an antidote to depression and even slows the aging process.  We’re actually genetically wired to be kind. In ‘The Five Side Effects of Kindness,’ David Hamilton shows that the effects of kindness are felt daily throughout our nervous system. When we’re kind we feel happier and our bodies are healthiest.”

Hamilton personally says kindness “builds relationships and thus strengthens society.  So, by extension, it ensures our protection and survival. . . In this modern interconnected world, there are no isolated acts of kindness.  Kindness creates ripples in the fabric of human relationships and human society.  These ripples impact the hearts and minds of other people, who in turn create ripples of their own.  Each seemingly isolated act of kindness matters more than we think.”
