IgnoreRants and Bliss: the Dangers of “Relativism” (FULL VERSION)

To be kept in a state of naive wonder-ment, is to be kept illusioned and disillusioned in a state of mystical fasci-nation or naiveté, to be “caught with our pants down, while blinded by the light, like a deer in the headlights,” easy to sway, convince, and manipulate. To not be grounded in any objective truth, or OBJECT, such as the surface of the earth, is to be without roots, and thus blown every which way with each passing fad, as a leaf in the wind, your house blown asunder with every huff and puff, for it was built upon the sand. I am not referring to living the mystery observed in the intrinsic patterns of nature, upon which the rock is built, but to the alluring trance-end-dance in our “age of decaydence,” with it’s bright lights/big city, the glitz and ritz of modern day “bread and circus,” we know as a metropolice, which leeches our attention with its perpetual distractions. Like insects attracted to the ultraviolent light which administers their fate, like moths to a flame, we are preoccupied with games and bloodsport, concerned with nothing more than attending the next major “sex, drugs and rock n roll” Feast-of-EL.

“OOOOOO SHINY!!!” *__*
The distractions keep us too entertrained to be able to seek the true wonder-ment of mystery.
Mystery = My story: my story written in the motion of the stars, of which, I AM the author, for only in the individual comes true author-IT!

Even the awe inspiring allure of the mystery keeps us too bedazzled to actually desire to shed the light of understanding and cast out the shadow of mystery.

“Make no mistake about it. Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretence. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.”

I see the ignore-rants in this bliss…. there is a counter balance to EVERYTHING..

Death in the air: American Airlines pilot dies mid-flight with 152 on board

© Carlos Garcia Rawlins
The captain of an American Airlines flight died while piloting his plane, which was carrying 147 passengers and 5 crew members from Phoenix to Boston, the airline has confirmed. The cause of death is still unknown, except that it was due to an “illness.”

“Syracuse, American 550, medical emergency, captain is incapacitated, request handling for runway,” the co-pilot is heard saying on an audio recording posted on savvystews.com, which provides only a glimpse into the dramatic events that transpired in the plane’s cockpit on Monday.

The Airbus A320’s first officer was recorded talking to the control tower in Syracuse, New York, where Flight 550 requested an emergency landing.

As the recording continues, the officer says he is concerned with how quickly the medics could get on board. The airport control tower directed him to a gate where medics were waiting.

An airline official was only able to reveal that the death was caused by an “illness” and occurred about four hours into the flight. Unconfirmed reports suggest that a flight attendant, who happened to be a former nurse, attempted to provide first aid to the captain but to no avail.

Passengers reportedly understood that something was going terribly wrong when a “quivering” female voice alerted them that the pilot was sick via the intercom, passenger Peter McSwiggin told WCVB.

Flight 550 then made a rapid descent, arriving in Syracuse at 7:13 am ET, according to American Airlines’ website.

The co-pilot was forced to make the unplanned landing on his own.

The Guardian quoted another passenger named Louise Anderson as saying that she awoke to the announcement that there was going to be an emergency landing due to pilot illness. Anderson said rumors of the captain’s death began circulating after landing, but an official announcement was made only on their makeup flight.

“Unfortunately, our pilot passed away. We are incredibly saddened by this event, and we are focused on caring for our pilot’s family and colleagues,” the outlet quoted an American Airlines spokesperson as saying.

A spokeswoman for the airline, Andrea Huguely, confirmed that a replacement crew had been dispatched to Syracuse and the flight was able to arrive at its destination. According to standard procedure, pilots over 40 are required to go through two physicals each year.

The incident, while rare, was not unique: according to the Federal Aviation Administration, a total of eight pilots, including the unnamed 57-year-old American Airlines captain, have died during commercial flights since 1994.


Ed. Note: IMO there’s more to this story than meets the eye, last year RadChick and Leuren Moret reported on The Wigner Effect. Radiation from Fukushima is creating a variety of aviation anomalies which include pilot’s dying in flight due to radiation exposure and health problems for both flight attendants and pilots.

Study: Circumcision Permanently Alters the Brain, Researchers Threatened

After discovering that the trauma from circumcision permanently altered the baby’s brain in regions associated with reasoning, perception and emotions, the researchers were threatened to destroy their results or face legal action and immediate dismissal.


As a graduate student working in the Department of Epidemiology at Kingston General Hospital, Paul D. Tinari, Ph.D. was approached by a group of nurses who had noticed that babies that underwent circumcision were experiencing excruciating levels of pain that negatively affected their behavior.   In an attempt to gather some scientific evidence that would support their positions,  Tinari suggested functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and/or Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanning to observe the effects of circumcision on the infant brain.

Tinari and the nurses used the MRI machine for their study after the MRI machine operator granted them permission.  Next they needed a test subject whose brain they could scan for changes pre and post circumcision.  A pregnant nurse volunteered her son to be the subject of the study.  Her husband had been putting intense pressure on her to have the procedure done, and it was her hope that the information gathered from the study would lead to the complete eradication of male infant circumcision.

What did the MRI Brain Scans Reveal?

The researchers tightly strapped the infant to the traditional plastic “circumstraint”, and immobilized the infants head using the standard surgical tape.  With no anesthetic used, the entire contraption was put into the MRI chamber, and the doctor performed the surgery using a sterilized plastic blade (since no metal objects can be used in an MRI due to large magnetic fields).

Paul D. Tinari, Ph.D. explains the results of his study:

The baby was kept in the machine for several minutes to generate baseline data of the normal metabolic activity in the brain. This was used to compare to the data gathered during and after the surgery. Analysis of the MRI data indicated that the surgery subjected the infant to significant trauma. The greatest changes occurred in the limbic system concentrating in the amygdala and in the frontal and temporal lobes.A neurologist who saw the results postulated that the data indicated that circumcision affected most intensely the portions of the victim’s brain associated with reasoning, perception and emotions. Follow up tests on the infant one day, one week and one month after the surgery indicated that the child’s brain never returned to its baseline configuration. In other words, the evidence generated by this research indicated that the brain of the circumcised infant was permanently changed by the surgery.

Researchers Threatened and Forced to Destroy Study Results

“Our problems began when we attempted to publish our findings in the open medical literature,” explained Paul Tinari.  All of the researchers who participated in the study were called before the discipline committee at Kingston General Hospital who severely reprimanded them, stating that male circumcision was legal under all circumstances in Canada, and that studying the adverse effects of circumcision was strictly prohibited.  The research team wasn’t allowed to publish the results of their study, and what’s more, they were forced to destroy all of their results.  The penalty that would be imposed upon them if they failed to comply was immediate dismissal and legal action.

As Paul D. Tinari, current director of the Pacific Institute for Advanced Study has written,

I would encourage anyone with access to fMRI and /or PET scanning machines to repeat our research as described above, confirm our results, and then publish the results in the open literature.

Russia introduces chemical castration for pedophiles

See RT News Report here: Get short URL
The Russian parliament has approved a law on pedophilia in a first reading. From now on people found guilty of sex crimes against children under the age of 14 will face chemical castration, while repeat offenders face a life sentence.

­According to the new law, the decision on a convict’s obligatory chemical castration will be made through a forensic psychiatrist’s report requested by the court, which may ultimately turn to other medical measures, MP Dmitry Vyatkin explained to Itar-TASS.

“It would be unwise to limit the medical measures to just castration, as in some cases it may not help,” Vyatkin said.

At the same time, some of the convicts may ask for voluntary chemical castration, even if the victim was over 14. This may help them get parole if they are already serving a sentence, or a more lenient sentence if they are still being tried. However, in the latter case the final decision will be up to the court.

The law also banned suspended and deferred sentences for those found guilty of sex crimes against a child under the age of 14. And from now on they can ask for parole only after serving at least 80 per cent of their sentence.

The new law comes amid increased concerns over sexual transgressions against minors in Russian society.

A staggering 1,300 Russian children suffered from sexual crime involving violence in 2008 and another 5,233 from non-violent sexual crimes, according to Anton Belyakov, an MP for the loyalist A Just Russia party. Belyakov was among those calling for more severe punishments for pedophiles, as some 97% repeat their offenses after being released.

United Russia MP Tatyana Yakovleva claims the number of sexual crimes against the underage has increased twentyfold since 2005.

“Pedophiles are sick and dangerous people who will never be full members of society, and this is why our goal is to protect healthy people, our children, who have their whole lives ahead of them,” Belyakov told RIA Novosti.

Previous laws on sex crimes against juveniles were more lenient, with the toughest sentence being an 8-15-year prison term.

And, as actual legal practice shows, many pedophiles received terms of 3-4 years through plea-bargaining.

­Hormones to the rescue

­The procedure of chemical castration is carried out using the drug Depo-Provera, which contains synthetic progesterone.

The female hormone progesterone lowers the levels of its male counterpart – testosterone, the hormone responsible for sexual desire, effectively reducing the latter.

The scientific community has no agreement over the drug’s ability to inhibit a pedophile’s desire to abuse a child, while its side effects include depression, fatigue, diabetes, and blood clots, which, of course, are not part of the sentence.


Check Out Which Top Foods Are Sprayed With Roundup Just Days Before You Buy Them


Check Out Which Top Foods Are Sprayed With Roundup Just Days Before You Buy Them

If you think that organic produce is a waste of money, you might be consuming a huge amount of toxins — probably many more than you realize.

As if it were not bad enough that most crops are being sprayed with layer after layer of the disease-causing herbicide Roundup, Monsanto’s pre-harvest spraying guide states that farmers should spray all crops heavily three days prior to harvest. They aren’t referring to only GMO crops; they are talking about all crops on which Roundup is being used. This means that if you are not eating organic, you are eating foods that were literally drenched in Roundup just a few days before reaching market.

Monsanto’s spraying guide tells farmers to spray Roundup herbicide to allow uniform crop maturity.

Why are they doing this? The intention is to dry out the crops for earlier harvesting. In fact, Monsanto International published a paper in 2010 stating that an application of Roundup will kill and dry out the crops in advance, produce a more uniform looking product, and allow for earlier harvesting.

Uneven maturity levels and green tissue delay overall harvesting times. Spraying Roundup turns all foliage and stems brown. Harvest management is important as earlier harvest often means a higher price. Also, when foods have been pre-dried in the fields, there is less money and time spent on drying them further in storage. By pushing the harvest date forward, growers can either plant a second time during the season, or they can meet optimum planting dates for other crops, maximizing their profits.

Since Roundup is being applied to fully grown food plants, much higher quantities must be used in order to kill and dry them — much, much more than what would normally be applied to simply kill weeds.

Applying Roundup this close to harvest means that the plants do not have time to metabolize this killer herbicide, nor is there usually time for the rain to wash off and dilute this poison.Roundup is simply dumped in huge quantities on the plants to dry them out, and then they are quickly harvested, still reeking of glyphosate.

Which foods are being subjected to this overload of Roundup just before you buy them?

  • Barley
  • Beans
  • Flax
  • Lentils
  • Non-GMO canola
  • Non-GMO soybeans
  • Oats
  • Peas
  • Sugar cane
  • Wheat

This means that just about everything in your grocery store is made using these crops! There really isn’t much that doesn’t use oats, soy, wheat, or sugar cane!

It’s not that other conventional foods are safe anyway. Most non-organic foods are sprayed regularly throughout the growing season. In fact, some pesticides are genetically implanted right into the food itself, such as in the case of GM corn. This means that you get a dose of these chemicals — not just once, but three times or more as the crops are routinely sprayed.

Just say NO to conventional produce and GMO foodstuffs. Perhaps if we can get enough Americans to stop buying these products, Monsanto will lose so much money they will stop pushing their poisons on the American people.





Two thirds of EU states reject GMO crops, file cultivation opt-out requests

Nice find Keri! Reblogged from https://followingworldchange.wordpress.com/

© Vincent Kessler
Two thirds of EU states have requested to be allowed to ban the growing of genetically modified crops in their countries, choosing the “opt-out” clause of a European Commission rule that allows members to override EU-wide GMO approvals.

Nineteen European Union member states have requested opt-outs from the acculturation of genetically-modified crops for all or part of their territory, the European Commission announced.

The Commission rule, passed in March, allowed its 28-member states to abstain from growing GMO crops, even if the specific GMO strain had already been authorized to be grown within the union. Even though GMOs branded as safe by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are allowed for use and cultivation in the EU, the states were given the October 3 deadline to decide on an “opt-out” option.

READ MORE: EU Commission proposes GM opt-out for member states

According to an emailed statement seen by Reuters, the Commission spokesman Enrico Brivio said that 19 countries have said no to Monsanto’s GM maize MON 810. So far it is the only GMO crop commercially cultivated in the EU which is grown in Spain and Portugal.

Belgium and the UK asked for the opt-out mechanism to be applied to only part of their territories, while Germany requested a partial opt-out, hoping to pursue more GMO research.

The full opt-out requests were made by Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, and Slovenia.

READ MORE: No to GMO: Scotland to outlaw growing of GM crops

The opt-out states de facto are requesting that biotechnology companies exclude their territories from GMO seed sales. Brivio says that requests are being communicated to the companies, which have a month to reply.

The decision would affect major GMO producers, including Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer and Dow Chemical – all developers of herbicide-resistant maize – who have already submitted applications for the cultivation of genetically modified plants to the EC.

The potential use of GMO in Europe has been a widely-debated subject, with environmentalists claiming that it would damage biodiversity.

Ahead of the deadline, Greenpeace said that the growing EU-wide condemnation of GMO products lies in the distrust of EU assessments.

“They don’t trust EU safety assessments and are rightly taking action to protect their agriculture and food,” environmental activist group member Franziska Achterberg said.

Monsanto, whose Roundup herbicide packed with glyphosate was labeled by the World Health Organization’s as a “possible carcinogen,” has led a campaign against the environmentalists ahead of the deadline, claiming that the ban “contradicts and undermines the scientific consensus on the safety of MON810.”

Congress quietly ends federal government’s ban on medical marijuana

Tucked deep inside the 1,603-page federal spending measure is a provision that effectively ends the federal government’s prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.

The bill’s passage over the weekend marks the first time Congress has approved nationally significant legislation backed by legalization advocates. It brings almost to a close two decades of tension between the states and Washington over medical use of marijuana.

Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so.

NEWSLETTER: Get the day’s top headlines from Times Editor Davan Maharaj >>

The Obama administration has largely followed that rule since last year as a matter of policy. But the measure approved as part of the spending bill, which President Obama plans to sign this week, will codify it as a matter of law.

Pot advocates had lobbied Congress to embrace the administration’s policy, which they warned was vulnerable to revision under a less tolerant future administration.

More important, from the standpoint of activists, Congress’ action marked the emergence of a new alliance in marijuana politics: Republicans are taking a prominent role in backing states’ right to allow use of a drug the federal government still officially classifies as more dangerous than cocaine.

“This is a victory for so many,” said the measure’s coauthor, Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa. The measure’s approval, he said, represents “the first time in decades that the federal government has curtailed its oppressive prohibition of marijuana.”

Massachusetts police department fed up with Big Pharma’s role in creating addiction through prescription painkillers


Ready for a positive police story? Where will it lead – you decide.

Yesterday, I reported at Natural Blaze that a Gloucester, Massachusetts police department fed up with Big Pharma posted the top 5 CEO salaries and emails online. Their Facebook status erupted with cheers in the comments and many shares. The department bemoaned the city’s drug problem and took aim at Big Pharma’s role in creating addiction through prescription opioid painkillers.

The Big Pharma salaries were as follows:

5. Eli Lilly – John Lechleiter $14.48 million jlechleiter@lilly.com 317-276-2000

4. Abbott Labs – Miles D. White $17.7 million miles.d.white@abbott.com 847-937-6100

3. Merck – Kenneth C. Frazier $25 million + cool private jet. ken.frazier@merck.com 908-423-1000

2. Johnson & Johnson – Alex Gorsky $20.38 million ceo@jnj.com 732-524-0400

1. Pfizer – Ian Read $23.3 million ian.read@pfizer.com 212-573-2323

The department urged people to politely press the CEOs about their companies’ roles in the statistic that 80% of drug addiction starts with “gateway” legal painkillers. Indeed, the FDA just approved opiate use for children even though states where medical marijuana is legal have seen a 25% drop in painkiller deaths. And, a major review last year found that pharmaceutical painkillers cause more deaths than cocaine and heroin combined.

The department’s urging worked.

Someone from Pfizer called to meet with them and people following the page are awaiting the results.

Drawing more cheers, the Chief wrote:

This is not because of us, this is because of YOU.
Addiction is a disease.
No way we are arresting someone who comes in for help.
No way are we judging anyone.

Previously, Gloucester drew national attention with their Angel initiative that would help – not harm or imprison – people seeking help with addiction.


Ana Kasparian reports:

There is a growing body of evidence that proves criminalizing addicts does very little to combat drug addiction, and rehabilitation is much more effective than throwing a non-violent person in prison.

However, the best part about the department’s strategy is their clear understanding of why opiate addiction has become such an epidemic in the U.S. As I mentioned in an earlier piece, the uptick in heroin addictions is the direct consequence of pharmaceutical companies pushing painkillers like OxyContin for years, which are also known as opioids. In fact, prescription painkillers accounted for 16,000 deaths, or nearly four out of every ten fatal drug overdoses in America in 2012 alone.

Overall, heroin use has jumped 63% from 2002 to 2013, and the CDC makes clear that those who are addicted to prescription painkillers are 40% more likely to get addicted to heroin in the future.

Regardless of where the conversation with drug companies like Pfizer takes them and regardless of the results of their rehabilitation program – this bit of news has restored some faith and positivity among its supporters.

Comment: Health advocates target Big Pharma to combat opioid epidemic

Many in Gloucester said they would follow the police department’s lead in contacting the executives of the pharmaceutical companies. “The war on drugs should always have been against big Pharma,” said one commenter. “They are the real drug dealers but they line too many pockets with too much.”

Sage of Quay Radio – Sofia Smallstorm – Iodine and Your Immune System (May 2015)

Tonight Sofia Smallstorm returns to the show.

Sofia will talk to us about a presentation she recently reviewed called ‘Iodine – Could this be the solution to your health problems?’ The presentation is from the 2007 Iodine Medical Conference which took place in California. The conference presented the clinical findings of using iodine therapies for various persistent health issues. Presenting at the conference were doctors Guy E. Abraham, David Brownstein, Bernard A. Eskin, Jorge D. Flechas and William Shevin.

Quoting Dr. Brownstein “Iodine deficiency is the underlying problem responsible for the high rate of cancer (particularly breast, lung, prostate and ovary) as well as the high rate of autoimmune disorders we are seeing in this country.”

My discussion with Sofia should not be construed as medical advice in any way. The intent of our conversation is for information and awareness purposes only. Anyone interested in understanding more about iodine should consult with a qualified health care professional.

Be Careful What You Buy – Plastic Rice Is Spreading Across Asia


Just as the artificial eggs from China earlier, not there is plastic rice spreading across Asia.Be Careful What You Buy – Plastic Rice Is Spreading Across Asia


Not long ago, it was revealed that there is fake rice spreading all over the Asian continent. Initially, it was only known as a rumor on Whats App and Facebook, but then it was confirmed by the most eminent media worldwide. Only few days ago the information about the artificial eggs from China has spread worldwide, and now, the plastic rice appears. These two examples are just few of the many, showing how important it is to carefully read the labels when buying things.

As stated by local media in Asia, this fake rice was produced in a southern state in India, called Kerala. It derives from China, but it quickly spread all over Vietnam, India, and Indonesia.


As many brands sell this plastic rice combined with the normal, natural rice, even the famous brands are not to swear by. Indentifying which brands are clean and which aren’t is very difficult task to do. This fake rice is very similar to the normal rice and this causes people not to check it before use. However, the consequences, such as stomach problems, are always present.

The stomach problems, or detrimental effects to the process of digestion are mainly caused by the ingredients of this rice, such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, and synthetic resign. Besides, the toxins that you take in by consuming this rice can result in numerous health issues, such as poisoning. According to the media, this fake rice is present on the market for a long time.  Taiyuan and Shaanxi are the first places where this rice appeared.


The Agro-based Industry and the Malausian Agriculture Ministry refute this information and claim that their rice is all-natural and safe-to-consumer product. However, they still cannot guarantee that fake rice is not imported and sold in some small shops over the country.

Can We Avoid Fake Rice?


As mentioned above, it is really difficult to determine the quality of the rice in the shop. However, you can do a little test at home. Consider the following indicators:

  • Fake rice gives every meal some kind of different and unusual taste
  • Even when cooked, this rice remains the same.
  • When exposed to great heat, it burns as the plastic itself does.

They Said Coconut Oil Was Good For Your Skin. Here’s What They Didn’t Tell You

They Said Coconut Oil Was Good For Your Skin. Here's What They Didn't Tell You
It sounds counterintuitive to be putting oils on your face, when for years we’ve been searching the shelves for oil-free products out of fear that oil would turn us into a greasy, blemished mess! But switching to a natural oil based skincare range is one of the best things you can do for your skin! The oil nourishes and soothes the skin allowing the active ingredients in your skincare to sink deeper into the skin, enhancing their beneficial effects! Who would’ve thought!

There are many wonderful oils available, but these are some of our favorites due to their proven skin-loving benefits:

Rosehip Oil

This oil penetrates deep into the skin where it helps to regenerate your cells and increase collagen production. It’s rich in vitamin C, omega-3’s and omega-6 fatty acids known to help heal scar tissue and reduce inflammation. It is also high in retinoic acid (the key ingredient in retinol products!) which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Hello anti-aging benefits!

But it doesn’t just protect against signs of premature aging, it also contains linoleic acid that, in combination with its other powerful ingredients, can help repair acne-prone skin with mild scarring and blemishes, and prevent more breakouts. Bring on clear, radiant skin!

Best for: Uneven skin, scars, fine lines, anti-aging and acne-prone skin.


Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is perfect for super sensitive skin. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory, plus it’s small molecular structure allows for easy absorption, giving your skin a soft, smooth texture. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil also help to retain the moisture content of the skin, making it a great choice for skin conditions such as eczema. Use it all year round as it helps to soothe your skin in the cold, windy months, as well as replenish moisture after a little too much sun exposure! The lauric acid content protects the skin’s surface making it an ideal ointment to relieve dry, rough skin.

Best for: Normal, sensitive and/or dry skin, and eczema.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil is a good all-round moisturizer as it’s rich in fatty acids, vitamin A and E. Olive oil is similar to the oils naturally produced by our skin so it’s also absorbed well, helping to boost your skin’s elasticity. The antioxidants in olive oil may even help protect against skin cancer! However, those with acne prone skin should avoid using it on their face as it’s a heavier oil and can contribute to blemishes. It makes a luscious addition to a bath, or when applied prior to showering. The warm water allows your skin to absorb more moisture from the oil, and then you towel dry off the excess! Brilliant!

Best for: Dry, dehydrated skin.

Sesame Oil

Despite it’s popularity as a beautiful cooking oil, sesame oil has not yet had the fame it deserves in the skincare world. This golden toned oil is a skin’s everyday secret weapon! Sesame oil can act in a similar way to sunscreen by shielding your skin from sun damage, resisting 30% of UV rays! If you’ve cut yourself, applying sesame oil on cuts and wounds helps them to heal faster due to it’s antibacterial properties. It can also help with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, moisturizing and nourishing your skin, whilst providing anti-inflammatory benefits. Sesamol, vitamin E and other potent antioxidants help fight free radical damage, and due to it’s high viscosity, the oil easily seeps into the skin, repairing damaged skin cells and nourishing from within.

Best For: Sun lovers and wound-prone skin.

Not sure what oil to try first? We’re loving Annemarie Gianni’s range of organic herbal skin oils! Find out more here.

7 Urgent Symptoms of a Stressed Liver and 7 Ways to Detoxify It Naturally

7 Urgent Symptoms of a Stressed Liver and 7 Ways to Detoxify It
In modern life, we are surrounded by TOXINS which produce free radicals and OXidative damage in every tissue of the body.  The liver uses antiOXidants and other nutrients to de-TOXify those free radicals. If you are a modern human, you need to support your liver because of the increasing toxicity of the environment combined with unhealthy cultural habits.  Do you have any of these symptoms which may indicate your liver needs help?

1. Headaches and Migraines – Chronic migraine patients have lower anti-oxidant capacity (Lucchesi, 2015). Chemicals, hormone changes and alcohol are all hard on the liver and can trigger migraines. Oxidative stress is considered a key event in causing migraines (Neri, 2015) and we often see detoxification significantly help migraine patients clinically.
2. Psoriasis – Impaired liver function is linked to psoriasis.(Murray, 1998) People with psoriasis are twice as likely to have advanced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (van der Voort, 2015)
3. Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome – Sugar consumption has dramatically increased during the last few decades, especially in the form of high fructose corn syrup found in processed foods, and has been positively associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. (Laguna, 2014)
4. PMS – The liver is in charge of metabolizing all of the hormones in your body and keeping them in balance. If the liver isn’t working optimally, estrogen and progesterone get out of balance, and PMS and menopausal symptoms appear or worsen. Elevated levels of estrogen can also cause cholestasis, and result in a vicious circle where liver function is slowed down, and estrogen levels continue to increase because it isn’t being processed and excreted. (Murray, 1998)
5. Fatigue – Your liver needs a lot of B vitamins in order to do its metabolism and detoxification jobs. (Murray, 1998) B vitamins are also very important for your mitochondria to produce energy from the food that you eat, and low B vitamins can result in fatigue, malaise and depression.(Marz, 2002)
6. Acne –Oxidative stress has been found to play a key role in acne progression.(Al-Shobaili, 2014) The skin is another major detoxification organ, in the excretion department, and if the liver cannot handle all the toxins by itself, they will try to get out another way, through the skin. (Cabot, 2015)
7. Digestive problems including bloating and constipation can indicate there are problems with your liver.
The liver is an unsung hero of health, it processes every chemical we come into contact with.  We are biochemically responsible for EVERY molecule we encounter (Mitchell, 2005), and liver detoxification consists of two phases which need a variety of amino acids, vitamins and minerals in order to work properly.

7 Best Lifestyle Choices for a Healthy Liver:

1. Eat Clean: For liver health, you must subtract toxins and alcohol from your life. Conventionally grown fruits and vegetables have fiber and vitamins and minerals that are good for your, but they also have pesticides that your liver has to detoxify.  Add organic fruits and vegetables to your diet, especially those found in the dirty dozen.[1] Limiting your alcohol intake and the amount of simple sugars you eat will also benefit your already hard working liver.
2. Best foods for the liver: Apples (organic), Artichokes, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cauliflower, Cranberries, Turmeric, Dandelion greens, Garlic, Grapes, Grapefruit, Kale, Olives, Pomegranates, Radishes, Raspberries, Rosemary, Spinach, Strawberries, and Tangerines.(Crinnion, 2010). Whey protein increases glutathione production by the liver. (Tseng, 2006)
3. Drink Water: So simple, yet many people are chronically dehydrated (probably because coffee, tea and alcohol do not count as water intake).
4. Fiber decreases the reabsorption of toxins in the digestive system because it speeds up your digestive process and inhibits the intestine’s ability to reabsorb toxins. Fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, and it can also be supplemented in the form of psyllium husk or ground golden flax seeds. Note: grind flax seeds yourself as needed, when they are ground ahead of time the healthy fats in them can oxidize, and cause more harm than good.
5. Brazil nuts are high in selenium, another cofactor to produce glutathione.(Marz, 2002)  Glutathione is the number one anti-oxidant produced by the liver.
6. Anti-oxidants – Oxidative stress from the environment and the body’s own metabolism contributes to the damage we see in fatty liver disease. (Sael, 2015) Antioxidants help to neutralize oxidative stress, and are good for more than just your liver. Vitamin C, resveratrol and turmeric are some of the best known, and most effective antioxidants
7. Milk Thistle contains Silymarin, which increases the ability of the liver to repair itself and is liver cell protective.(Sael, 2015)
Detoxification is a complicated process, but if you follow the previous seven suggestions, you will be lessening the burden on your liver so it can continue to protect you from oxidative stress, a major cause of disease.

Your Cells Are Listening: How Talking To Your Body Helps You Heal

menschliche zellen

“Every part of your body has its own consciousness or its own soul.”  These transformative words, spoken by indigenous medicine women, began my journey within to discover the extraordinary healing capacity of the human body.

When this perspective was introduced to me, I was suffering from a severe chronic pain disorder.  I suddenly imagined incorporating this concept into my meditation routine.  I thought, Can my body hear me…can I talk to it to gain its cooperation in healing this condition?


That night, after reaching a state of deep calm through meditation, I inwardly engaged my body in a heartfelt conversation, with hope, but having no idea what to expect.  After about one hour of this focused communication, something amazing happened.  My tissues began to respond.  Connective tissue pulled and stretched apart layers of scar tissue.  Nerves fired and my calf muscles began to perform flexion and extension exercises independently of my conscious control.  As this response continued, one of my calf muscles that had become paralyzed by the neuropathic condition — diagnosed as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy — came back to life as electric-like jolts shot through the area.

My heart pounded as I realized that the path to my freedom from this condition had finally begun.  With a background in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, I knew too well how prevalent chronic pain is in this country and I wondered what the implications of this phenomenon could mean to so many others who were suffering.  As I continued to make progress with my condition, I organized my approach into a system that I could teach to clients and shifted my professional focus to hypnotherapy.

When instructing my clients, I explain that a regular meditation practice is necessary to train the brain to enter alpha and theta brain wave states.  While in these states, communication between the conscious mind and the physical body is dramatically enhanced.  I have found that when communicating, there are three key steps to gaining the cooperation of the body:

  • Approach your body with genuine compassion, understanding that it is made up of conscious cells who experience emotions.
  • Build trust by engaging your body in mental conversations about your desire for the two of you to cooperate and overcome the ailment.
  • Allow changes in the conversation by using different thoughts and words that elicit spontaneous elevated emotions.

From my experience, the above guidelines are necessary to achieve dynamic healing responses in the body. I recently came across a very similar set of factors that were discovered by researcher Cleve Backster, who spent 36 years studying biocommunication in plant, animal and human cells.  He referred to these factors as real intent, attunement, and spontaneity.[1]

Backster, formerly an interrogation specialist for the CIA, wrote about the defining moment which led him to his real work in this world, in his book Primary Perception.[2]  This moment occurred one February morning in 1966 when he decided to plantss-ismonitor the Dracaena plant in his lab utilizing polygraph equipment.  He attached the electrodes to a leaf and began to think about ways that he might induce a surge in electrical activity in the plant.  In humans this surge in electrical activity is associated with intense emotions.  He suddenly imagined burning the electroded leaf.

The same instant this idea entered his mind, the polygraph pen shot to the top of the chart showing an extreme reaction on the part of the plant.  Amazed, he walked to his secretary’s desk to retrieve a set of matches while pondering the possibility that this plant was somehow detecting the force of human intention.

When he returned with the matches, the plant was still showing the same high level reaction which would interfere with tracking additional changes on the chart.  Backster decided to “remove the threat” by returning the matches to the desk.  At this point, the chart displayed a downward trend as the plant apparently began to calm down.[3]  When Backster attempted to repeat the same results by pretending that he was going to burn the plant, there was no reaction.  The plant seemed to sense the difference between real and artificial intent. He eventually discovered that plants become attuned to their primary care takers, responding to both their positive and negative emotions and to their return after being away for a time.[4]  Chart findings also showed that plants prioritize the emotions of their primary care takers over the emotions of others nearby.


Backster later expanded his research to include testing human cells for signs of consciousness.  He collected white blood cells from human donors, electroded them in a test tube and then recorded the cells’ reactions as the donors experienced different emotional states.

He found that spontaneous emotions were necessary in order to elicit an electrical reaction in the cells.  For instance, if a donor forced herself to feel an emotion, the cells would not respond.  However, when she received a distressing phone call from her daughter, the cells reacted significantly.[5]

He noted that distance seemed to be irrelevant in these experiments. For example, a donor left his electroded cells behind in the lab, then kept a detailed log of any stressful emotions experienced on his trip home to another state, such as missing a turn on the freeway, standing in a long line at the airport, and the take-off of his plane.  Later, his logged incidents compared with the chart recording showed strong correlations between the timing of the stressful events and the electrical reactions in his cells.  The chart became quiet again when he arrived home and went to sleep.[6]

These experiments were conducted while using equipment that screened out electromagnetic radiation — the usual energies used for information transmission. The cells behaved as if the screens weren’t there, suggesting that this communication is carried by a field still unidentified by conventional science.[7]  Some scientists believe that the further development of quantum physics may help guide us to understand this field that communicates emotional intent between living things.[8]


Quantum Entanglement is a process where two particles of matter which have interacted with each other, still behave as if they are connected after being separated by many miles.  When an energetic change is made to the properties (position, momentum and rotational spin) of one of the particles, the properties of the other distant particle will change at the same instant.

This scientific phenomenon and the research of Cleve Backster, point to the Eastern concept of oneness — the view that all of nature is interdependent.  Ancient cultures understood this interconnection as a living universal energy field that sustains life while guiding the evolution of consciousness throughout the universe. The meditation techniques involved in my practice bring the mind into attunement with this field.

Energy from this field is then focused into a physical healing event through clear intention — delivered by means of a conversation that evokes spontaneous emotions — and attunes the physical body to the conscious mind.  This method which I call Antara (Sanskrit for within), enables one to experience the raw creative healing ability generated by an alliance of the mind and body with this living universal energy field.

Note: Is there anything that we come into close contact with on a daily basis that’s NOT toxic? Or without having to pay luxury prices for organic materials like hemp for clothes, linens, mattress liners etc? I love the idea of “green mattresses” but many Eco-friendly products are priced out of range for people struggling to make ends meet.  It’s way past time for a shift in paradigms…

Nice find from Keri at https://followingworldchange.wordpress.com



Memory foam is used as cushioning in helmets and shoes. Pharma-Medicine use’s it in prosthetics and products to prevent pressure ulcers such as seating pads for people who are severely disabled… and they blame the side-effects onto something else as in over 27 disease names. Memory Foam is now well known for its use in pillows, mattress pads, and mattresses, which come in different densities and depths. It is very common for people to get sick because of chemicals in their mattresses . Currently there are 107 known carcinogens used in mattress and pillow manufacturing . Women wh o purchased a memory foam matress in the last year (2014) have a 27% increse in miscarriages  These mattresses offgass toxic chemicals that absorb into your skin, and through the lungs and into your brain and blood stream. These products support the Cancer Industry.

The place where you spend one-third of your life is chock-full of synthetic materials, and can be potentially toxic. Since the mid- to late ’60s, most mattresses have been made of polyurethane foam, a petroleum-based material that emits volatile toxic compounds that can cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, rashes and more. Formaldehyde, which is used to make one of the adhesives that hold mattresses together, has been linked to asthma, allergies, and lung, nose, and throat cancers. And then there are cotton pesticides and flame-retardant chemicals, which can cause cancer and nervous-system disorders. In 2005, Walter Bader, owner of the “green mattress” company Life kind and author of the book Toxic Bedrooms, sent several mattresses to an Atlanta-based lab. A memory-foam model was f ound to emit 61 chemicals (pote
ntially deadly) including the carcinogens benzene and naphthalene.
Is Long-term Use of Memory Foam Healthy?
1) There are people who use memory foam products without reporting any side effects or related health issues, they just go to the doctor and are diagnosed with disease conditions that actually relate to the memory foam. That said, there are various reports and studies which indicate thatmemory foam is toxic. Again Reports include carcinogenic chemicals and formaldehyde gas. To manufacture memory foam, chemicals are added to polyurethane to make it more dense and viscous at the same time. Additional chemicals are required to make the polyurethane flame retardant. One of these, Pentabde (of the polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) family), was used un til 2004(then it was granted over 15 legal names). Pentabde is now known to be toxic to the liver, thyroid, and nervous system.
(2) A study in 2000 specifically found mattress emissions to be toxic to the lungs of labratory mice.
(3) The long-term effects of memory foam and its toxicity is not fully understood (according to bought and paid for labs and editorialists) but there clearly is some reason for concern.
Approximately one-third of your life is spent in close contact to your sleeping surface, so it is important to consider you and your family’s health when selecting a pillow or mattress.
I would strongly recommend avoiding this and similar very soft materials for use in infants’ beds. Not only can they create all kinds of diseases, but  soft bedding traps (carbon dioxide) and increases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) deaths.— COWBOY DON

The Georgia Guidestones is a large granite monument in Elbert County, Georgia. It has been referred to as an American Stonehenge. The person or group that paid for its construction is a mystery. Inscribed on its stones are ten commandments, written in twelve languages, for what it describes as an Age of Reason. Many believe it is an agenda for the New World Order.

The first commandment is: “Maintain humanity under 500 million in perpetual balance with nature.” Since the world population now stands at over seven billion, that means the commandment calls for the elimination of 93% of the world’s population.

The Great Culling of the human race already has begun. It is being done through chemicals added to our drinking water, food, medicines, and the air we breathe — chemicals that have the known effect of reducing fertility and shortening lifespan. This message can no longer be dismissed as conspiracy theory. The facts are in plain view.

This documentary is the first of a three-part series. It shows how additives to our drinking water, such as fluoride, supposedly to combat tooth decay, in reality are covert doses of death. It also shows how you can protect yourself and your family.

The difference between a psychopath and a sociopath

 Thursday July 30, 2015

They hide among us, sometimes as the most successful people because they’re ruthless and superficially charming, with no regard for others. Sound like someone you know? Well, you do know at least one

Psychopath and sociopath are popular psychology terms to describe violent monsters born of our worst nightmares. Think Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs (1991), Norman Bates in Psycho (1960) and Annie Wilkes in Misery (1990). In making these characters famous, popular culture has also burned the words used to describe them into our collective consciousness.

Most of us, fortunately, will never meet a Hannibal Lecter, but psychopaths and sociopaths certainly do exist. And they hide among us. Sometimes as the most successful people in society because they’re often ruthless, callous and superficially charming, while having little or no regard for the feelings or needs of others.

These are known as “successful” psychopaths, as they have a tendency to perform premeditated crimes with calculated risk. Or they may manipulate someone else into breaking the law, while keeping themselves safely at a distance. They’re master manipulators of other peoples’ feelings, but are unable to experience emotions themselves.

Sound like someone you know? Well, heads up. You do know one; at least one. Prevalence rates come in somewhere between 0.2% and 3.3% of the population.

Anthony Hopkins as serial killer, Dr Hannibal Lecter If you’re worried about yourself, you can take a quiz to find out, but before you click on that link let me save you some time: you’re not a psychopath or sociopath. If you were, you probably wouldn’t be interested in taking that personality test.

You just wouldn’t be that self-aware or concerned about your character flaws. That’s why both psychopathy and sociopathy are known as anti-social personality disorders, which are long-term mental health conditions.

What’s the difference?

Psychopaths and sociopaths share a number of characteristics, including a lack of remorse or empathy for others, a lack of guilt or ability to take responsibility for their actions, a disregard for laws or social conventions, and an inclination to violence. A core feature of both is a deceitful and manipulative nature. But how can we tell them apart?

Sociopaths are normally less emotionally stable and highly impulsive – their behaviour tends to be more erratic than psychopaths. When committing crimes – either violent or non-violent – sociopaths will act more on compulsion. And they will lack patience, giving in much more easily to impulsiveness and lacking detailed planning.

Christian Bale in American Psycho Psychopaths, on the other hand, will plan their crimes down to the smallest detail, taking calculated risks to avoid detection. The smart ones will leave few clues that may lead to being caught. Psychopaths don’t get carried away in the moment and make fewer mistakes as a result.

Both act on a continuum of behaviours, and many psychologists still debate whether the two should be differentiated at all. But for those who do differentiate between the two, one thing is largely agreed upon: psychiatrists use the term psychopathy to illustrate that the cause of the anti-social personality disorder is hereditary. Sociopathy describes behaviours that are the result of a brain injury, or abuse and/or neglect in childhood.

Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made. In essence, their difference reflects the nature versus nurture debate.

There’s a particularly interesting link between serial killers and psychopaths or sociopaths – although, of course, not all psychopaths and sociopaths become serial killers. And not all serial killers are psychopaths or sociopaths.

But America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has noted certain traits shared between known serial killers and these anti-social personality disorders. These include predatory behaviour (for instance, Ivan Milat, who hunted and murdered his seven victims); sensation-seeking (think hedonistic killers who murder for excitement or arousal, such as 21-year-old Thomas Hemming who, in 2014, murdered two people just to know what it felt like to kill); lack of remorse; impulsivity; and the need for control or power over others (such as Dennis Rader, an American serial killer who murdered ten people between 1974 and 1991, and became known as the “BTK (bind, torture, kill) killer”).

Dennis Rader A case study

The Sydney murder of Morgan Huxley by 22-year-old Daniel Jack Kelsall, who arguably shows all the hallmarks of a psychopath, highlights the differences between psychopaths and sociopaths.

In 2013, Kelsall followed Huxley home where he indecently assaulted the 31-year-old before stabbing him 28 times. Kelsall showed no remorse for his crime, which was extremely violent and pre-meditated.

There’s no doubt in my mind he’s psychopathic rather than sociopathic because although the murder was frenzied, Kelsall showed patience and planning. He had followed potential victims before and had shared fantasies he had about murdering a stranger with a knife with his psychiatrist a year before he killed Huxley, allegedly for “the thrill of it”.

Whatever Kelsall’s motive, regardless of whether his dysfunction was born or made, the case stands as an example of the worst possible outcome of an anti-social personality disorder: senseless violence perpetrated against a random victim for self-gratification. Throughout his trial and sentencing, Kelsall showed no sign of remorse, no guilt, and gave no apology.

A textbook psychopath, he would, I believe, have gone on to kill again. In my opinion – and that of the police who arrested him – Kelsall was a serial killer in the making.

In the end, does the distinction between a psychopath and sociopath matter? They can both be dangerous and even deadly, the worst wreaking havoc with people’s lives. Or they can spend their life among people who are none the wiser for it.
