Health

I find it interesting that dental and vision are ‘not covered’ by traditional medical insurance. Is this by design? My perspective is that your teeth and eyes are connected and relevant to the health of your overall body. You’ve probably l heard the expression “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” - you might not have heard that your teeth essentially are a fuse box to the rest of your body.

I’ve written previously called “Connecting the dots between stress, pain, cancer, and chronic illnesses” which is a discussion of how stress, pain, and disease affect your muscles, spine, skeletal structure.

"People who scored fewer than eight points on the test, he found, were twice as likely to die within the next six years compared with those who scored higher; those who scored three or fewer points were more than five times as likely to die within the same period compared with those who scored more than eight points."

Flexibility, balance and muscle strength are key indicators of longevity.

Sit. Stand. Repeat. This little trick — a deceptively simple measure of flexibility and strength — can predict who will live longer and whose lives will be cut short, according to a study by Brazilian physician Claudio Gil Araujo. He uses the test with athletes, but he also uses it to lay out the stakes with patients: To live longer, they must get moving and maintain muscle and balance.

Araujo noticed long ago that many of his patients, particularly older people, had trouble with ordinary motions such as bending down to pick up something off the floor — difficulty indicative of a loss of flexibility. As people age, he knew, reduced muscle power and loss of balance can greatly increase the risk of dangerous falls.

This article is potentially helpful for RIFE / Spooky2 generator owners who are researching potential uses for the PEMF accessory.  It seems positive results would come from simply running 432hz and 528hz through the PEMF coil.  

As it turns out the A-musical note was tuned to 432 Hz back 5000 years ago in India and Egypt and through the days of Brahms and Mozart, and in then in 1938 the Illuminati, through collaboration between the Rockefeller Foundation and Nazi Germany, achieved world-wide acceptance of musical A-note re(de)-tuned to 440 Hz. Evidently, it was their intention to remove the healing – soothing effect of music sung or played when tuned at 432 Hz.

Meditation helps veterans with PTSD

Editor's Note:
The surprising thing was not the fact that meditation works well as a therapy for PTSD.  Rather the surprise is what they compared it with: purposely recalling traumatic events!  This is something they started doing to soldiers after Vietnam.  Previously, soldiers came home and did their best to resume a normal life by focusing on positive thoughts.  After Vietnam, US soldiers have been forced into therapy sessions.  

Original Article

Meditation worked as well as traditional therapy for military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder in a small experiment sponsored by the Department of Defense.

One method preferred by the Department of Veterans Affairs is exposure therapy, but it doesn’t work for everyone and many can’t handle what it requires: purposely recalling traumatic events and confronting emotions.

Meditation could be a better choice for some, the researchers said.

In D.A.R.E. class, they taught us that cannabis is categorized as a stimulant, depressant, AND hallucinogen.  It slows down your breathing by relaxing your body.  

Unlike alcohol, which can only be used only two ways (recreationally or abusively), cannabis can also be used medicinally... to enhance the mind-body connection and allow you to go into a meditative state.  When you are in a meditative state, your mind is able to “talk” to your body.  That’s when you are able to increase blood flow to the areas of your body that require extra energy.

Yoga & Yoga Breathing

If you haven't tried yoga for strengthening your core muscles and correcting posture-related neck and back pain issues before, we recommend trying it in the comfort of your own home.  It is important to note, however, that if you are experiencing pain, STOP.  A good Yoga instructor can help you exercise and work your way into more advanced positions by showing you alternative exercises while your body builds the necessary core strength. 

If you're not ready to start practicing yoga yet, you can get started in the "mental" aspects of breathing.  Proper breathing is a foundation of Yoga and everyone can benefit from learning:

Thoughts on "Acute Flaccid Myelitis"

I've been reading about this "acute flaccid myelitis" and wanted to share some basic information that the media is omitting from their articles:

The official name for "Polio" is "poliomyelitis" and the names seem to have a striking similarity.  Both polio and AFM can result in paralysis and death. Acute means severe, and myelitis basically means that your myelin sheath (the neuro-fabric that surrounds your nerves) is inflamed.  Flaccid means that the nerve has now become limp and no longer passes a signal. It reminds me of the meningitis attack that I had along with my Lyme disease.  Similarly, meninges line your skull, brain and spinal column. Your myelin sheath, when it is intact and healthy, flowing energy properly - like electricity, protects your nerves and facilitiates communication throughout your body.  Your blood is able to properly circulate and deliver oxygen and other nutrients to the entire body.

Is Chronic Pain Genetic?

I came across the following headline and wanted to share some thoughts after reading the article:

Chronic pain IS genetic: How long you hurt after a traumatic injury depends on your DNA, study finds
[Original Article]

I am not here to debate the science behind the article.  I agree that your genes can change after a traumatic incident, and can affect the chemicals released within your body.  My problem with the article is the overall positioning of the cause & affect model they are implying: that you are at the mercy of your genes and have no control over these processes.  Wrong!  Don't be a victim of propaganda.

Glycemic Index

The glycemic index is a great way to determine how much "sugar" is contained in a particular food.  I was surprised to learn that a baked potato has more sugar than a snicker's bar.  Not all sugars are created equal...  

This anti-inflammation diet was largely formulated based on the glycemic index.
