Everyone is a Child?

December 8th, 2014 No comments

 

 Most human beings cease to develop at around the age of ten or twelve. The average seventy year-old is often a ten year-old with sixty years time-in-grade. Our societies are of, by, and for Human Children, which explains the self-perpetuating nature of this ghoulish malady, as well as most of the silliness we see in the world.

Quotes from New Earth: Part 1 – On Success, Abundance, Work and Money

December 7th, 2014 No comments


 

Below you will find a compilation (part 1) of what Eckhart Tolle says in his book New Earth on the issues of success, abundance, work and money…  Other words of interest are: Energy, flow, “not enough”, and who you “really are”, and surrender.  Some parts have been highlighted for you. 

Please note, I am no guru or teacher.  I’m only presenting quotes that I liked (more or less) and ones that seemed to summarize Tolle’s point of view.  The paragraphs below span the entire book, and are not in any particular order, beyond what I felt was appropriate. 

 

To start you off, let’s look at the quote about ego:

 

It [the ego] consists of thought and emotion, of a bundle of memories you identify with as “me and my story,” of habitual roles you play without knowing it, of collective identifications such as nationality, religion, race, social class, or political allegiance. It also contains personal identifications, not only with possessions, but also with opinions, external appearance, longstanding resentments, or concepts of yourself as better than or not as good as others, as a success or failure

 

Now, we are ready for the rest of the quotes:

 

The ego’s unconscious core feeling of “not enough” causes it to react to someone else’s success as if that success had taken something away from “me.” It doesn’t know that your resentment of another person’s success curtails your own chances of success. In order to attract success, you need to welcome it wherever you see it.

 

How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment. The present moment is the field on which he game of life happens. It cannot happen anywhere else. Once you have made peace with the present moment, see what happens, what you can do or choose to do, or rather what life does through you. There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness: One With Life. Being one with life is bieng one with Now. You then realize that you don’t live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, and you are the dance.

  

Who you think you are is also intimately connected with how you see yourself treated by others. Many people complain that others do not treat them well enough. “I don’t get any respect, attention, recognition, acknowledgment,” they say. “I’m being taken for granted.” When people are kind, they suspect hidden motives. “Others want to manipulate me, take advantage of me. Nobody loves me.”

Be the Valley

November 30th, 2014 No comments

Through becoming less (in the ego‘s perception), you in fact undergo an expansion and make room for Being to come forward. True power, who you are beyond form, can then shine through the apparently weakened form. this is what Jesus means when he says, “Deny yourself” or “Turn the other cheek.” This does not mean, of course, that you invite abuse or turn yourself into a victim of unconscious people. …..

 

If you are content with being nobody in particular, content not to stand out, you align yourself with the power of the universe. What looks like weakness to the ego is in fact the only true strength. This spiritual truth is diametrically opposed to the values of our contemporary culture and the way it conditions people to behave. Instead of trying to be the mountain, teaches the ancient Tao Te Ching, “Be the valley of the universe.” In this way, you are restored to wholeness and so “All things will come to you.”

Similarly, Jesus, in one of his parables, teaches that “When you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place so that when your host comes, he may say to you, friend, move up higher. Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

There is Only the Now. Now is Confused With the Content of Now

There is only the now:

“the present moment is confused with what happens, confused with content. The space of Now is confused with what happens in that space. The confusion of the present moment with content gives rise not only to the illusion of , but also to the illusion of ego. “

Below is a quote from the “The Fukushima Cleanup Effort” Facebook group, not written by me. You can find it here https://www.facebook.com/groups/391748190893768/:

Quote 1:

Credit where credit is due…Knute taught Yule Brown much of what Brown knew about Hydroxy.

 

Knute rediscovered what the ancients knew about water. In 1967 by stumbling upon it, while making a Bowie knife for a project, while making his own steel. Since he rediscovered it, he got to name it. He first called it Rainbow Fuel, then later Hydroxy.

Quote 2:

 

The “P-7″ are the Prometheus 7: “A Team of tireless explorers. A team of honest, truth seeking men from several walks of life .

Their hearts were set on discovering the underlying nature of Water. Not just water as a liquid, or as a refreshing, replenishing, life giving substance.

Their discoveries were of an even more profound nature. For they had found inroads to the very power of our Sun’s heat, they had found the very essence of the hidden fire and electricity that water contains within itself.

They knew of Michael Faraday’s research into electrochemistry and electrolysis. That knowledge had led them to their consequent adaptations which as you will soon see – gave us, humanity, a clean, an efficient, and an abundant future.

They casually called themselves “The Prometheus Seven.”

They faced many forms of prejudice from others, and many obstacles while determining as much of this as yet, largely unexplored kingdom.

Their names were:

Professor Yull Brown – Hydroxy
TR Knudtson – Hydroxy, Rainbow Fuels 1967, development of the Hydroxy steel making process using electrolysis with power sourced from PV solar cells at 12 volts
John Bockris – Electrochemistry
Christopher Bird – Secret Life of Plants
Dr. James Smith – Pyrotechnics
Stanley Meyer – Water Powered Vehicles
William A. Rhoads – Oxy Hydrogen machine, using electrolysis for jewelry crafting and glass working.

Of those Seven men, today only one remains alive.

Back to Eden

December 13th, 2012 No comments

This docmentary is well done, inspirational and very educational (i.e. empowering)  making it one of the best documentaries I’ve watched.

Watch it to learn about the “one” simple trick (well, it’s not a trick, it is what Nature does every day) that can transform gardening and farming from a challenging task to total bliss and lots of bounty.

Produced & Directed by: Dana Richardson & Sarah Zentz

Executive Producer: Michael Barrett

After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of
man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what
God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues
facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization,
irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues.
None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul’s
gardens and orchards.

“Back to Eden” invites you to take a walk with Paul as he teaches you
sustainable organic growing methods that are capable of being
implemented in diverse climates around the world.

Citizens for Health Alert – 10 Days Left To Say “NO” To NDI Guidance

November 22nd, 2011 No comments

November 22, 2011

Dear Citizen for Health,

By now you are familiar with our campaign opposing the FDA’s “Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues”. We believe this document reflects the FDA’s intention to willfully and grossly misinterpret the law, especially the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), regarding New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs) and filing submissions for them.

Thousands of you have demonstrated your commitment to health freedom with messages to your elected representatives and comments to the FDA, and we at CFH have submitted ours as well. You can read those comments here.

The deadline for comments is December 2. With only ten days left, we’ve created a petition to be delivered to Congress and the Presdient calling on them follow up with the FDA once the comment period closes as a final push to get this dangerous Guidance withdrawn. The targets here are different, so if you have already sent comments to the FDA, augment your voice by signing the petition too!

Sign the petition now!

As we’ve already made clear, if this guidance moves forward to govern future FDA policy it will strike at the very root of our health freedoms, and supplements and other products generally recognized as safe for nearly two decades will be re-assessed as if they contained new ingredients. This would cause major disruption in the dietary supplement market; force a significant number of products off the shelves; and result in revenue losses of over a billion dollars and the unemployment of over 100,000 Americans.

That’s why we need your help now, more than ever, to have the kind of impact that will make the FDA withdraw the guidance.

We want to amss at least 10,000 signatures in the next ten days so act quickly, and be sure to keep an eye out for further developments in this critical campaign.

As always, thanks for your participation,

Protect Your Supplements from the FDA – File a Comment

November 21st, 2011 No comments

Besides emailing your senators and congressperson as explained in this post, it’s important to file your comments with the FDA itself, which will appear in the Federal Register and hopefully add to the voices of others and help save our supplements; otherwise, the FDA will claim that no one objected.

The link below will take you to where you can Submit a Comment. In one of the mandatory fields, it asks you the name of your organization: you can enter Citizens for Health in this (they’re one of the organizations leading our fight to save our supplements).

Feel free to customize your message and tell the FDA why access to supplements is important to you. The Comment form only allows a few words, so you might want to just put a short summary in it and save a more detailed message in a text (.txt) file, which it allows you to attach.

You can copy the text found here (sample letter) or modify the letter to congresspersons found here , and paste it into Microsoft word, word pad or notepad then save it as a .txt file.
Please note that, due to many requests from people who would be harmed by their loss of supplements, the FDA has granted an extension for us to file our comments — but we must submit them quickly, as they will not consider any submitted after December 2,  2011.

Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues

November 21st, 2011 No comments

Re: Docket No. FDA-2011-D-0376-0079, “Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues”

This guidance, if enacted, would put in place a series of onerous regulations for the supplement industry that will make it extremely expensive and difficult for the nutritional industry to keep manufacturing supplements — so expensive and difficult, in fact, that it will put most legitimate manufacturers out of business and potentially eliminate most supplements from the marketplace.

The rules as proposed seem innocent enough, requiring a stringent approval process for all supplements on the marketplace since 1994, when Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Information Act (DHSEA). DHSEA was actually intended to protect nutritional and herbal manufacturers from unwarranted FDA harassment, and allow Americans access to legitimate supplements.

The sponsors of DHSEA intended that the law would reduce the regulatory burden on supplement manufacturers, and provide a streamlined process of bringing new products to market. Instead of honoring the purpose of DHSEA, the FDA in its newly proposed regulations seems determined to institute a complicated, burdensome, and financially prohibitive approval process for each and every new supplement on the market since 1994, akin to the drug approval process. No supplement company has the resources to finance such a procedure, which can run into the tens of millions of dollars for every new product. Experts who have reviewed the proposed regulations claim that the FDA could insist that even previously available supplements would also be subjected to such requirements and be classified as “synthetic food additives” – and their manufacturers frankly would have to close down.

The FDA already has the power and authority to prohibit sale of mislabeled, harmful, or dangerous supplements. Through its Good Manufacturing Practices regulations already in place, supplement manufacturers must meet stringent requirements for safety and potency. The FDA also has the authority to punish manufacturers who make inappropriate unsubstantiated claims. In effect, the FDA already has all the power it needs to regulate effectively nutritional supplements.

A colleague said, “In all the years I have been fighting for freedom of choice in health care, the currently proposed regulations are the most troubling, most far-reaching, and with potentially the most catastrophic effects, not only for my own health, family and friends, but for those tens of millions of Americans who rightfully and intelligently use nutritional products for their health-supporting benefits. In other words, this bill creates extraneous red tape, paperwork, and burdensome labeling requirements when everything the bill mandates is already being accomplished under current law!”

During this time, supplements have enjoyed an unrivaled safety record. Statistics show they’re safer than prescription drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, and even safer than food!

According to the Poison Control Centers, there were no deaths due to supplements in 2008. In 2009, there was one.

When the Dietary Health Supplement Education Act was passed, Congress intended a simple notification process for new dietary ingredients. This guidance would turn this into a pre-approval scheme, which goes against the intent of the law. The FDA already has ample regulatory authority to take action against a product if it’s unsafe. They don’t need to have this pre-approval power, too.

This could be disastrous to public health. At a time when preventative measures are even more important to health care costs, the FDA is limiting access to preventative health care.

The guidance creates unnecessary regulations that limit my access to the dietary supplements I rely on. The expensive and burdensome process will force between 20,000 and 42,000 dietary supplements to be removed from the market and will increase the cost of those supplements that remain.

Health Risks Of Herbal Dietary Supplements

November 21st, 2011 No comments

Health Risks Of Herbal Dietary Supplements
by Dr. James A. Duke

The front page of the health section of the March 19th, 2000 Washington Post, read: “Mounting evidence suggests that increasing numbers of Americans are falling seriously ill or even dying after taking dietary supplements [...] The victims include men and women of all ages as well as children whose parents are feeding them snacks, drinks and nostrums made with herbal supplements that are neither regulated by the federal government nor tested for their effects on the young.”

With such ominous articles appearing now regularly in the media, and with more and more people taking herbs, it makes sense to ask, “How does the harm done by herbs compare with harm done by other things?” Last year, several people called to ask me what I thought about another article in the Washington Post, “Health Concerns Grow Over Herbal Aids.”

My immediate reaction: mostly nonsense and some truth. The nonsense is fertilizing fears among the lay public and driving them back into the waiting arms of the greedy “pharmaceuticalists.” Two of my good friends were so alarmed by the negative press on herbs that they stopped herbs completely.

The growing health concerns from mass-media articles are being fertilized by trigger-happy journalists, pharmaceutical manufacturers and promoters, and physicians who know so little about herbs, many of them unfamiliar with the statistic from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that prescription drugs are killing 140,000 Americans a year. Herbs (usually through abuse or exceeding recommended dosage) are killing fewer than 100.

WHERE’S THE TRUTH

The elements of truth the Post article adduced apply mostly not to herbs, but synthetic supplements that never saw an herb. The Post article mentions ephedra, a Chinese herb, which can be used wisely and properly (in fact, various species have been used medicinally for thousands of years).

Reminding the readers that automobiles, which killed 41,826 people nationally in 1998, or diseases such as kidney disease, which killed 26,295, kill more people than herbs, the author of the Post article, in all fairness, should have included the other figures, the 40,000-100,000 killed by medical mistakes, the 98,000-140,000 a year killed by prescription drugs in American hospitals and the 77,000-88,000 killed by hospital-caused nosocomial infections. Surely he was aware of these figures. If not, he should not have condemned the more salubrious herbal statistics without comparing the pharmaceutical death rate.

I’ll do that for him today — honestly, not sensationally. Summary: regulated pharmaceuticals kill many more Americans than herbal medicine, a thousand fold more.

Then Guggliotta attempts to nail some of my herbal alternatives. St. John’s wort is fast becoming a Prozac “competitor.” Actually, St. John’s wort is fast becoming a Zoloft competitor, and is being studied as such at Duke University. I predict that St. John’s wort will prove to have fewer side effects than Zoloft. Kava is a more logical alternative to Prozac, less addictive and probably much safer.

Melatonin is a good remedy for jet lag with in my own experience. A supplement it is. An herb it ain’t. Ginkgo biloba allegedly slows dementia. Conversely, Tacrine (Cognex), the first FDA-approved drug for Alzheimer’s, helps about 25 percent of the patients for no more than two years, allegedly upsetting the livers of 25 percent of those patients.

Matter of fact, as Guggliotta says, senna, a natural purgative, was added to Ex-Lax last year to replace a a side-effect-associated synthetic chemical. I suppose Guggliotta’s comments might have herbal people, frightened by his comments, abandoning the ephedra and rushing out to get Ex-Lax for weight-loss and exercise regimes. Most of the alternative practitioners discourage the use of any laxative, natural or synthetic, for protracted periods. Instead, we urge exercise and diet (at least five fruits and five vegetables).

Protect Your Supplements from the FDA – An Easy Method to Contact Your Senators and Congressperson

November 21st, 2011 No comments

Please contact your congressperson ASAP.

This website will automatically look up your senators and congressperson and email them: http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/750/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8252 – This website has an already-written letter. Please copy the letter below and paste it the message box to replace the letter that is automatically shown.  The letter below is longer but it addresses the issue with more detail.  Read it as well to get educated on the issue.  The Senators seem to not know how wide of an impact this FDA regulation will be.

Detailed letter:

Subject: FDA Supplement Guidance Will Result In The Loss Of Tens Of Thousands Of Jobs and Cost the Economy $21.2 Billion To $39.8 Billion Annually.

What the FDA is telling Congress is misleading. In recent weeks, the FDA has launched an aggressive new campaign to put in place a series of onerous regulations for the supplement industry that in effect would drive most legitimate manufacturers out of business and potentially eliminate most supplements from the marketplace and increase the cost of others by many folds.

Unfortunately, there was a dangerous loophole in the 1994 DSHEA law: while supplements that existed at the time were protected by law, the FDA was given the authority to regulate any new ingredients introduced after Oct. 15, 1994.

What the FDA is telling Congress is misleading: that it has “released draft guidelines intended to assist the dietary supplement industry in deciding when a premarket safety notification for a dietary supplement containing a new dietary ingredient (NDI) is necessary, and in preparing premarket safety notifications. This guidance, when finalized, does not create new regulations or law”, but the problem is that the FDA is trying to turn the clock back with the laws it already has. Our elected officials clearly don’t understand the problem yet. The FDA is trying to turn the clock back with the laws it already has. The guidance document makes it clear that the FDA is willfully and grossly misinterpreting the law, especially the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), with regard to re-defining NDIs and filing submissions for them. The agency’s attempt to create new regulatory requirements using a guidance document is also in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and therefore the agency is in violation of the law.

Those of us who researched this issue need Congress’s help because it has the power to rein in the FDA and have done so in the past when many voters complained that their health would suffer if their supplements were taken away.

This is a blatant abuse of power. What the FDA is doing here is performing an end-run around the existing law. According to the law, the FDA has to prove a dietary supplement is unsafe for it to be taken off the market. These new guidelines turn that on its head. They are clearly not what Congress intended.

The FDA rules as proposed seem innocent enough, requiring a stringent approval process for all supplements on the marketplace since 1994, when Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Information Act (DHSEA). DHSEA was actually intended to protect nutritional and herbal manufacturers from unwarranted FDA harassment, and allow Americans access to legitimate supplements.

The cost of complying with these guidelines would be astronomical. Experts estimate that the studies required would cost between $100,000 and $200,000 per ingredient notification. That adds up to millions of dollars per supplement company. Smaller companies would not be able to afford this and would go out of business.

The economy is already hurting and we have high unemployment. If enacted as currently proposed, this guidance will have a massive impact to the dietary supplement industry and further hurts our economy. Expert analyses show that this guidance will cost the economy $21.2 billion to $39.8 billion annually and result in the loss of tens of thousands of jobs.

Numerous attorneys have pointed out that the FDA’s attempt to create new regulatory requirements using a guidance document is in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and that this amounts to illegal sleight-of-hand, using a guidance as a side-door effort to avoid the public meetings that would promote a more formal debate. Some have stated:

“The Draft Guidance on NDIs is contemptuous of the intent of Congress when it passed DSHEA, because instead of ensuring access to a full range of products, it obstructs their path to the marketplace. The guidance document makes it clear that the FDA is willfully and grossly misinterpreting the law, especially the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), with regard to re-defining NDIs and filing submissions for them. The agency’s attempt to create new regulatory requirements using a guidance document is also in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and therefore the agency is in violation of the law.

The FDA – Anti You, Pro Who?

November 10th, 2011 1 comment

This article is special. I have collected and I am pasting here a series of emails from different sources, and a couple articles on the current debacle and the threat to your choice of natural and other nutritional supplements curtsy to the FDA and their fear mongering and abuse of government powers.

Allopathic medicine is pathetic, their drugs kill people,  and now they are trying to make supplements sound like a dangerous drug.

At least 100,000 people die from pharmaceutical drugs each year.. almost none dies from supplements.  Not to mention that pharmaceuticals are unnatural, often have side effects and are pulled out of the market after too many injuries or deaths. One also must remember that most pharmaceuticals cover the symptoms rather than help the body reach a balanced healthy state.  Read this article “death by medicine” http://www.seekingwholeness.com/crazy-world/death-by-medicine

Gold-Dollar-Sign

President Barack Obama has appointed two experts, one in food the other in drugs, to head up the soon to be reorganized Food & Drug Administration in preparation for an agency split that would separate the FDA into two — one agency to oversee foods and the other to regulate drugs. But just exactly where does that leave dietary supplements?

The Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) declares dietary supplements to be products intended to supplement the diet. But the FDA contends DSHEA severely limits the FDA in regulating a growing industry. A recently issued report from the General Accounting Office claims the FDA does not have the resources to adequately regulate dietary supplements. The GAO report appears to be part of an orchestrated effort to soften the public up for a major change in the classification and regulation of dietary supplements.

Supplements, vitamins, minerals, probiotics, herbs, etc are safer than pharmaceuticals. In fact, surveys conducted by poison control centers show dietary supplements to be the safest products of all.

Recently, the FDA classified a form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) as a new drug (Pyridorin, Biostratum) … Imagine having to need a prescription from a physician just to take vitamin B!

Now let’s see what these doctors have to say,

Please find below a special message from Advanced Bionutritionals. They have some very important information to share with you about the latest attempt by the FDA to ban supplements.

Small-Scale Farmering is Better, Says UN Report

June 1st, 2011 No comments

The “Agro-ecology and the right to food” confirmed what many in the traditional food movement already knew, traditional small-scale farming is better than large-scale factory farming.

My vision is to see a community farm in every town, neighborhood, or every few city blocks.  Modernity and civilization do not have to equal a separation of people from the natural world. People are happier and healthier around plants and fresh food, people and food have always existed together, children need to see their food growing and pick up fresh food. This is better for the health, mind, soul, and as this report shows this is better for the society, economy, and the environment.

Eco-Farming can double food production in 10 Years, says new UN report

GENEVA (8 March 2011) – Small-scale farmers can double food production within 10 years in critical regions by using ecological methods, a new UN report* shows. Based on an extensive review of the recent scientific literature, the study calls for a fundamental shift towards agroecology as a way to boost food production and improve the situation of the poorest.

“To feed 9 billion people in 2050, we urgently need to adopt the most efficient farming techniques available,” says Olivier De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food and author of the report. “Today’s scientific evidence demonstrates that agroecological methods outperform the use of chemical fertilizers in boosting food production where the hungry live — especially in unfavorable environments.”

Agroecology applies ecological science to the design of agricultural systems that can help put an end to food crises and address climate-change and poverty challenges. It enhances soils productivity and protects the crops against pests by relying on the natural environment such as beneficial trees, plants, animals and insects.

“To date, agroecological projects have shown an average crop yield increase of 80% in 57 developing countries, with an average increase of 116% for all African projects,” De Schutter says. “Recent projects conducted in 20 African countries demonstrated a doubling of crop yields over a period of 3-10 years.”

“Conventional farming relies on expensive inputs, fuels climate change and is not resilient to climatic shocks. It simply is not the best choice anymore today,” De Schutter stresses. “A large segment of the scientific community now acknowledges the positive impacts of agroecology on food production, poverty alleviation and climate change mitigation — and this is what is needed in a world of limited resources. Malawi, a country that launched a massive chemical fertilizer subsidy program a few years ago, is now implementing agroecology, benefiting more than 1.3 million of the poorest people, with maize yields increasing from 1 ton/ha to 2-3 tons/ha.”

The report also points out that projects in Indonesia, Vietnam and Bangladesh recorded up to 92 % reduction in insecticide use for rice, leading to important savings for poor farmers. “Knowledge came to replace pesticides and fertilizers. This was a winning bet, and comparable results abound in other African, Asian and Latin American countries,” the independent expert notes.

“The approach is also gaining ground in developed countries such as United States, Germany or France,” he said. “However, despite its impressive potential in realizing the right to food for all, agroecology is still insufficiently backed by ambitious public policies and consequently hardly goes beyond the experimental stage.”

The report identifies a dozen measures that States should implement to scale up agroecological practices.

“Agroecology is a knowledge-intensive approach. It requires public policies supporting agricultural research and participative extension services,” De Schutter says. “States and donors have a key role to play here. Private companies will not invest time and money in practices that cannot be rewarded by patents and which don’t open markets for chemical products or improved seeds.”

Got The Sugar Blues? Duffy Has Good News!

May 30th, 2011 1 comment

sugar addictionI recently completed reading a book titled Sugar Blues by William Duffy, I picked it up at a closeout sale at a Borders bookstore for half price. I like this one, learned a few things from it and have since recommended it to a few friends. I also have largely gone on a sugar-free experiment. I also recommend you read this book, it’s a classic diet book, yet it sounds as if it was written a couple years ago, there might be a few outdated bits and pieces but again, this is a classic worth reading and has a wealth of insight to offer you. I had reduced my sugar intake for a few years, seeking to be “moderate”, this book is actually helping me far “very easily” resist sugar. I am almost sugar free these days. I appreciate the history in this book, you will learn about the history of sugar, and other things like fermenting, sauerkraut and beer. You will learn how sugar was invented, and you will be reminded that unlike salt (so essential people used it as currency in the past) sugar is a relatively new addition to our diet. This book touched me in a positive way, and I feel it will do the same with you. You just might never look at food and eating the same way again! all good positive things!

Well, what else does the book talk about? Duffy makes it clear how he dislikes how sugar is labeled (or not labeled) on products and how it is inaccurate to lump refined sugar with other healthy carbs under the same label name. See, not all carbs are the same, but a food label doesn’t tell you that, nor does it say how much added sugar is in a product. You might be surprised to learn what I learned about brown and raw sugar products, and what they put sugar in (ketchup, mayo, dressing, etc), you’ll read about sugar and the persians, indians, crusades, and even slavery! The book is easy to read as well, well documented and sourced.

Knowing what I know now, it is difficult to allow myself to eat sugar, and I have this book to thank. This books acts as an anti-sugar vaccine or an anti-sugar booster shot. If you crave sugar simply read this book and you will no longer crave it!

Sugar is not a nutrient, it is not empty calories either, it is actually an anti-nutrient, when you eat it you are eating something that takes away vitamins from your body to rid itself of sugar.. thus Duffy defines it as a poison, and I see why.

I’ve finished the book a weak ago only, I can say no to sugar now easily, I have resisted cravings and know what it feels like to eat sugar now vs. another source of calories, and I am still learning my body’s response and watching to see how my health will improve. I am unable to tolerate sugar in things now, many things smell and taste too sweet! I do not touch or crave the junk you find at gas stations or coffee shops. Instead of sugar I eat fruits, brown rice, potatoes etc.. real healthful calories. It’s a transition, for sure, but a good and natural one. I wish I had read this book 20yrs ago, as a kid I binged on sugar and now can see how it probably had negative effects on my health.

See, the thing is, “when it comes to sugar, the secret is not moderation but avoidance.”

I wont ramble much more..

You can find it at a very affordable price on amazon

This is the book description from Amazon:

It’s a prime ingredient in countless substances from cereal to soup, from cola to coffee. Consumed at the rate of one hundred pounds for every American every year, it’s as addictive as nicotine — and as poisonous. It’s sugar. And “Sugar Blues”, inspired by the crusade of Hollywood legend Gloria Swanson, is the classic, bestselling expose that unmasks our generation’s greatest medical killer and shows how a revitalizing, sugar-free diet can not only change lives, but quite possibly save them.

Death by Medicine

Death by Medicine, Part I

By Gary Null PhD, Carolyn Dean MD ND, Martin Feldman MD, Debora Rasio MD, Dorothy Smith PhD

ABSTRACT

A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million.1 Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics.2, 2a

The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million.3 The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million.4 The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.5

TABLES AND FIGURES (see Section on Statistical Tables and Figures, below, for exposition)

ANNUAL PHYSICAL AND ECONOMIC COST OF MEDICAL INTERVENTION

Condition Deaths Cost Author
Adverse Drug Reactions 106,000 $12 billion Lazarou1 Suh49
Medical error 98,000 $2 billion IOM6
Bedsores 115,000 $55 billion Xakellis7 Barczak8
Infection 88,000 $5 billion Weinstein9 MMWR10
Malnutrition 108,800 Nurses Coalition11
Outpatients 199,000 $77 billion Starfield12 Weingart112
Unnecessary Procedures 37,136 $122 billion HCUP3,13
Surgery-Related 32,000 $9 billion AHRQ85
TOTAL 783,936 $282 billion

We could have an even higher death rate by using Dr. Lucien Leape?s 1997 medical and drug error rate of 3 million. 14 Multiplied by the fatality rate of 14% (that Leape used in 199416 we arrive at an annual death rate of 420,000 for drug errors and medical errors combined. If we put this number in place of Lazorou?s 106,000 drug errors and the Institute of Medicine?s (IOM) 98,000 medical errors, we could add another 216,000 deaths making a total of 999,936 deaths annually.

Condition Deaths Cost Author
ADR/med error 420,000 $200 billion Leape 199714
TOTAL 999,936

ANNUAL UNNECESSARY MEDICAL EVENTS STATISTICS

Unnecessary Events People Affected Iatrogenic Events
Hospitalization 8.9 million4 1.78 million16
Procedures 7.5 million3 1.3 million40
TOTAL 16.4 million 3.08 million

The enumerating of unnecessary medical events is very important in our analysis. Any medical procedure that is invasive and not necessary must be considered as part of the larger iatrogenic picture. Unfortunately, cause and effect go unmonitored. The figures on unnecessary events represent people (?patients?) who are thrust into a dangerous healthcare system. They are helpless victims. Each one of these 16.4 million lives is being affected in a way that could have a fatal consequence. Simply entering a hospital could result in the following:

  1. In 16.4 million people, 2.1% chance of a serious adverse drug reaction,1 (186,000)
  2. In 16.4 million people, 5-6% chance of acquiring a nosocomial infection,9 (489,500)
  3. In16.4 million people, 4-36% chance of having an iatrogenic injury in hospital (medical error and adverse drug reactions),16 (1.78 million)
  4. In 16.4 million people, 17% chance of a procedure error,40(1.3 million)

All the statistics above represent a one-year time span. Imagine the numbers over a ten-year period. Working with the most conservative figures from our statistics we project the following 10-year death rates.

Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

December 27th, 2010 3 comments

Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?
by: Stephen Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C.

Throughout practically all of history, we humans have walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious to the fact that the gentle surface energies of the Earth harmonize and stabilize the body’s fundamental biological rhythms and keep inflammation at bay.

In our contemporary Western world, the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic soled shoes has disconnected us from these nurturing energies and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.

New research, which I am proud to be involved in, indicates that this physical disconnect from the Earth creates abnormalities in the physiology and contributes to the chronic inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep that are so rampant in our modern society.

Along with the research has emerged an amazingly simple remedy for many health problems, including the chronic inflammation regarded as the cause of most common modern diseases, including cardiovascular disease.  The remedy is something right beneath our feet – the Earth itself!

The Greatest Health Discovery in My Career
During my nearly forty years as a practicing cardiologist, I have encountered and used many wonderful natural treatments and seen first-hand astounding lifesaving technological advances. The greatest health discovery of my career, however, is something totally different and more natural than anything I could ever have imagined.

This discovery is called Earthing and it means reconnecting the human body to the Earth’s natural and subtle electric frequencies that few people even know exist. The surface of the planet, science tells us, brims with health-sustaining energy, but until recently the extraordinary benefits that it offers were basically unknown.

Connecting the human body to this natural resource is utterly simple – just go barefoot outdoors. If you have ever walked along the beach near the surf, or on a grassy field wet with morning dew, you may have felt the energy in the form of gentle tingling or warmth in your feet and legs.  You can also connect to this energy by sleeping, working, sitting, or resting on specially designed and inexpensive conductive sheets, bands, or mats that transfer the energy via a wire into your home and office.

These unique devices often relieve common health and pain problems. Recovery from surgery, injury, and extreme athletic performance is accelerated. People report sleeping better with more energy during the day.  They feel better.  For more than ten years, thousands of people around the world – men, women, children, and athletes – have incorporated Earthing into their daily routines. The results have been documented and they are extraordinary.

This surprising yet totally intuitive subject is the focus of a new book that I have had the privilege to co-author.  It is called Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? (Basic Health Publications, 2010).  In the book, my co-authors and I present research and observations collected during more than 12 years that strongly suggest that the biggest anti-inflammatory on the planet is – get this! – the very planet itself. Basically, we live on top of a global treatment table!

A Missing Link to Health?
The research also suggests that direct physical contact with the Earth reconnects you to the natural electric signal from the Earth governing all living organisms dwelling upon it. The signal restores your body’s natural internal bioelectrical stability and rhythms, which in turn promote normal functioning of body systems, including the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and immune systems.

It shifts the nervous system from stress-dominated functioning to one of calmness.  By reconnecting, you enable your body to return to its normal evolutionary electrical state, better able to self-regulate and self-heal.

The Earth’s surface energy takes the form of a virtually unlimited reservoir of free electrons, subatomic particles. When “uploaded” into your body as a result of direct physical contact with the ground, these electrons appear to quell the rampage of destructive free radicals at the basis of chronic pain and inflammation.

Heal :: Be the Strong!

December 9th, 2010 1 comment

Do what it takes to heal yourself.

If that means seeing a healer, shaman, therapist or doctor, then do it.

If that means forgiveness, then forgive.

If it means experimenting with foods and drinks, then do.

If it means giving up foods, drinks, behaviors, weight, do it.

If it means changing a habit or more, do it.

If it means changing the way you think, change it.

.

If it means giving yourself permission to heal, give yourself that permission.

.

If it means taking personal responsibility, then take responsibility for your health.

But “don’t” pass-on the blame

don’t blame

for when you blame, you take “your infinite power”, and “handed it away”

.

don’t handed your infinite power and health away

.

Only the weak agree with blame-calling and the strong see it as petty.

Be the strong

What Physics and Math Really Are

November 4th, 2010 2 comments

“The missing link in physics is consciousness”

Scientists consider math as the universal language. Should we meet aliens from other galaxies math is expected to be the language we could use. Notice how math is a “language”

mathWe also consider physics to hold “laws” of nature. Yet a universal unifying theory of physics still eludes the greatest minds.

Humans do not use physics to walk, to open a door knob, to run, to use tools.

Cats do not use physics or equations when they sprint or jump on to the counter-top.

Birds do not use physics or equations to fly.

The biological brain or what we call the “mind” in these beings does NOT use equations or math.

I was taught that everything and everyone uses physics, this statement is very misleading. Physics, as in all of Science, simply “explains” or interprets into “laws, observations, words and numbers what nature does.

Physics and math are simply written “languages” that we use to explain “nature” or what we consider “reality”. All living beings seem to function just fine, naturally, organically, without knowing math or physics.

.

.

The reason a unifying theory of physics is missing, the reason physics explains many things but not everything, is that physics (and math) are missing something.

.

Physics and math are missing something that cannot be written, or explained, or translated into a human language, this missing link is “consciousness”.

.

I remember the first day I was exposed to physics. I was very excited to interpret and understand how things work. However, I soon started to notice a persistent thought, it almost always nagged on me, starting on the first day and onto every physics class I took in high school. Even in college this thought never cased to exist. I found myself often thinking (more accurately feeling), “but this is not right”, “something is wrong about this”, “I know physics is not done this way”. My main feeling was that “it was wrong”. But I could not explain where this feeling came from. I simply assumed that I just needed to learn more advanced physics to get this feeling to go away.

I’ve always had a persistent and intuitive sense that there was a different way to interpret the universe and “nature”

Root Canals, Nickle Braces, Crowns and Dentures Linked to Heart Attacks and Cancer!

October 17th, 2010 No comments

Nickel_chunkBelow you find must-know information that your dentist probably wont share with you. Educate yourself before you meet the dentist. Most of the dentists will answer your question int he same fashion claiming that root canals are safe, that nickle is not an issue, that amalgams in your mouth are not toxic, etc..

You gotta wonder why the main stream doctors are so .. docile. Is it simple ignorance, is it the result of an education system that teaches people to memorize and not question, are the dentists too busy working they don’t have time for personal research, maybe they lack motivation to research new findings, or maybe it is a convenient oversight when it comes to them making more money vs. speaking out against the “norms”.

Dr Hal Huggins, D.D.S.

in a lecture to the

Cancer Control Society 1993.

Tape 93F014. Cancer Control Society, 2043 N. Berendo St, LA, CA 90027. Ph: 213 663 7801.

Dr Huggins, D.D.S:

“More than 75% of the crowns placed today are nickel, and that is present in braces. Here we call it stainless steel. It is like silver fillings, it doesn’t have much silver in it, and you would pay for silver and gold what you wouldn’t pay for mercury. So it kind of boils down to a matter of salesmanship, and stainless steel sound pretty prestigious, so they put that in children, and what happens? You see teenage behaviour that may not have been there a few days before the braces were put on.

At the University of Colorado when I was nearly 50 years old I went back to take a degree in immunology because I could see I was affecting the immune system. The first case we studied, we took a woman and put braces on her, and I am kind of sensitive to immunology, I studied it for 4 years, and about 2 weeks after that I only knew about 2% of what was going on in immunology, it is a field that is expanding very rapidly, but a term I hear many people saying is – you know this product it boosts your immune system. How does it do that? What does it do to the T4′s and the T 8′s?-.when you can study the cells of the immune system with the sophisticated equipment we have, and we can find that in this case I put the braces in. We did all the sophisticated testing, we put the braces in, and then the patients ends up with big bruises on her thigh. How did they get there? Well, a little sloppy dentistry, but these are huge bruises, no trauma involved there. Emotional things, a lot of change. Sleeping patterns, the first thing to change in an immunological challenge? Yes, big changes there. Things begin to look a little uncomfortable by day 3 so we took the conventional blood test, and what did I find? Nothing I could identify at that time, but this was 10 years ago. Today I could identify it, then I couldn’t, but things were still getting worse, and that afternoon we did the T subsets over again and what did we find? Immune system shutdown. I mean the T4′s were zero, the T8′s were zero, T11′s were zero. All of these things may not have a lot of meaning, but I can tell you zero is not where they should be. Within a few hours of death. We decided maybe we better take the braces off. The patients was for it, the faculty was for it, I was for it, I mean this was my wife we are talking about so it is not a real scientific case. So we took the braces off and the immune system came back-in 3 moths we were almost half way back where we were 3 days before. It does not recover overnight.

And I have other records on my desk where they did not take the braces off on the fourth day, and the reports show the same changes in the white blood cells, the same changes in the red blood cells, the same changes in the body temperature, everything is identical except when we get to day 4 and the braces were not removed, that was the last date that was entered on the autopsy reports, because these kids died, as they can with what is called the chrome crowns. That is a cutesy little term, chrome crowns, but these kids, I see them in the airport all the time – and I see little kids with tri-focals on, glasses about that thick. When did you have your chrome crown placed? I see people pushing along in a wheelchair. I wonder when did you have your root canal done? Because root canals so far have turned out to be one of the most vile things that I have ever run into, and my life for the last 20 years has been with a lot of vile essense

In California we found a woman who had some nickel crowns placed, she ended up with a specific type of breast tumour and she went through the lumpectomy, she went to the support group afterwards, and she said to me you know my husband was talking to this guy out in Colorado about nickel being carcinogenic.

What does that mean?

That mean it produces cancer.

Do you suppose there is any relationship between my crowns and my breast tumour?

Another woman in the group said – well I went to Dr So and So dentist down the street here.

On Built-in Meanings & Change

July 30th, 2010 No comments

Hi again!

Here are a few thoughts for you to consider today:

.

The more the old systems reveal their inadequacies the more people will believe change is needed. Every thing that happens is an opportunity. Everything is neural, if you define it as positive you get a positive effect.

NOTHING has a built-in meaning.

.

love,
Ethan
