Reflections

Yesterday I went for a checkup at Bedford Hospital’s ENT department. I met with the two surgeons most familiar with my case, who always gently recommend chemotherapy and radiation, which I, equally gently, always refuse.

This time they both observed that the outstanding tumour on my neck was definitely smaller.  I have to be honest: it doesn’t matter how rebellious you might be or how into natural therapies and alternative medicine, the authority of experienced, serious doctors is deeply ingrained; despite myself, their words filled me with renewed confidence.  Before every appointment I consider cancelling, partly out of fear, but I go anyway because I enjoy their company.

Like me, they are looking for answers, and I just happen to be caught in the middle as both experimentor and experiment.  I feel if I can convince them, I must have nothing to worry about.  Being open minded, one took notes about my vegetable juice regimen, including watercress – which prevents tumours co-opting new blood supplies – and lemons, which raise the pH.  After hearing how I abandoned my extreme coffee habit he seemed concerned about his own of ten a day, perhaps more so after seeing me bound into the surgery, down to the same weight as when I was 18, without a sniff of caffeine in a year.

Half jokingly I asked if they thought any surgeon anywhere would – for a modest fee – just excise the lump and send me on my way.  I was told in no uncertain terms this would contravene every medical princple in the book: treating one tumour in isolation from the original, giving the patient a false sense of security while leaving their fate unchanged.  I was assured they would personally report such a doctor if they ever found out his name, and get him debarred.

No doubt they were right, and deep down I agreed, though I still think it’s worth asking!  But only when driving home I realised that the position should actually be broader still.  Currently medicine treats tumours (even as a networked group) in isolation from their only possible true cause, that is , the tissue milieu from which they grew – and will grow in the future – from a predictable need to survive adverse conditions.  This milieu provides their opportunity once the immune system, closely woven with the mind, becomes overburdened or distracted.  Without question in fifty years it will be a debarring offence to treat cancer in this way – assaulting the tumour with chemicals and deadly radiation while leaving the person unchanged; giving them hope of a cure while leaving the cause in place.

I recently came across an NHS cancer leaflet which recommended high sugar foods to gain weight lost during chemo.  I was so incensed (glucose feeds tumours, something so well known that PET scans rely on it to prove their location) that I tracked down the person who wrote it, and we actually had a very productive chat in which she assured me she relied on expert testimony but promised to review new evidence from her researchers.  Let’s hope they aren’t the same people selling the chemo!

NHS guidelinesSpeaking of healthy diets, while in the ENT waiting room I heard a carer describing to her elderly and hard of hearing charge about the meal she’d prepare that afternoon. “It will be your favourite,” she enunciated: “peanut butter sandwich, yoghurt, cup of tea, a Kit Kat, and a slice of cake.”  I think her food, and her future as a patient, are both assured.

Speaking of not eating..

Interesting news this week in the Telegraph that fasting for three days completely rebuilds the immune system.  How incredible is this!

Fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly, scientists have found in a breakthrough described as “remarkable”.

Although fasting diets have been criticised by nutritionists for being unhealthy, new research suggests starving the body kick-starts stem cells into producing new white blood cells, which fight off infection.

Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy.

It could also help the elderly whose immune system becomes less effective as they age, making it harder for them to fight off even common diseases.

The researchers say fasting “flips a regenerative switch” which prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the entire immune system.

Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells.

During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells.

In trials humans were asked to regularly fast for between two and four days over a six-month period.

Scientists found that prolonged fasting also reduced the enzyme PKA, which is linked to ageing and a hormone which increases cancer risk and tumour growth.

“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system,” added Prof Longo.

“When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged,” Dr Longo said.

“What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So we started thinking, well, where does it come from?”

Fasting for 72 hours also protected cancer patients against the toxic impact of chemotherapy.

“We are investigating the possibility that these effects are applicable to many different systems and organs, not just the immune system,” added Prof Longo.

ge London, said the study sounded “improbable”.Chris Mason, Professor of Regenerative Medicine at UCL, said: “There is some interesting data here. It sees that fasting reduces the number and size of cells and then re-feeding at 72 hours saw a rebound.

“That could be potentially useful because that is not such a long time that it would be terribly harmful to someone with cancer.

“But I think the most sensible way forward would be to synthesize this effect with drugs. I am not sure fasting is the best idea. People are better eating on a regular basis.”

Predictably the one-track mindset in some wants to turn a free natural resource into a drug.  Such a step would mean doctors are still needed and corporations still able to patent profitable products.  In the same vein a Scientific American essay showed that meditation lowered stress levels.  The medical writer excitedly claimed this “discovery” might usher in a new generation of drugs which mimicked the effect of meditation to lower stress!  Just imagine!

Excuse my medical ignorance, but what about just learning to meditate, and gaining a lifetime benefit - for free?

Lie Detectors on Overtime!

Another newsworthy article appeared recently, showing conclusively that the Sandy Hook “shooting” was a fake and that thankfully no children died.  All evidence pointed to this anyway, including the recent work of a school safety investigator named Wofgang Halbig, an ex-state trooper threatened with jail if he continues to ask pointed questions about the absurdities at Sandy Hook.

This gathering storm of evidence shows that those who publicly insist the Sandy Hoax, and the even more ludicrous Boston Smoke Bomb were not second rate fakes have to be in on the act.  This includes the notorious Mick West of Metabunk, who by some incredible coincidence believes everything the government believes, namely:

  • on 9/11, two planes brought down three massive WTC buildings
  • a garage-door sized hole in the Penatgon means an airliner dematerialised
  • putting the “highly corrosive, unstable poison” industrial sludge named hydrofluosilicic acid into drinking water is a non-event
  • Sandy Hook and Boston were genuine events
  • chemical trails, left daily by unregistered jets, which twist on their own axis and persist for entire days in all weathers are simply condensation

This kind of blatant conartistry riles me.  Knowing he couldn’t possibly believe a single one of  these fairy tales, let alone all of them, I challenged him to pass a lie detector test to be undertaken by a nearby and police approved unit in California.  The expert assured me that since all police were required to take one before being hired, and since he had been called on to administer such tests in court cases, he could guarantee the truth.

At first West expressed his agreement, which only a day or two later turned to a blank refusal.  It would be a waste, he said, of time and money.  Well, it was my money – $400 – and since the investigator would travel to any place of West’s choosing, the time would have taken twenty five minutes for ten simple yes or no questions.  The great difficulty with lies is that more of them are always needed, whereas as the great writer Gopi Krishna said, “truth is a strange substance, growing stronger in adversity, and enlarging itself in the face of criticism.”  Which in effect means…

 ..there’s no such thing as bad publicity!

Last week I put the finishing touches on my house fresco.  As I’d suspected, those who had commented loudly on the scaffolding’s extended presence could hardly remember it being there only two days later.

I was invited to talk on the radio, and while waiting to go on-air for my second interview I heard the DJ discuss Richard Dawkins’ recent claim that fairy tales were bad for children as they blurred the lines between fantasy and reality.

The timing was perfect, so to my delight I was able to rebut this nonsense with a quote from Einstein, to the effect that if you want your children to be smart, read them fairy takles; if you want them to be smarter still, read them more fairy tales.  Since every amenity was first a flight of fancy – cars, lasers, telephones, computers, televisions, submarines, airplanes, rockets, moon landings – a stimulation of the imagination is the most likely doorway to progress, and forbidding it to wander the fastest route to decay and stagnation.

Although the BBC which took such interest last year limited their enthusiasm to local radio, to my surprise a charming reporter from ITV turned up and had in no time flat taken in all the technicalities and enough film to put together a wonderfully concise piece which appeared on TV only a few hours later, proceeding to hit the coveted 10:00 pm national news slot:

Chemical Nation

Interesting to read that the American Academy of Neurology say chemotherapy is now known to destroy brain function:

Studies in breast cancer patients find rates of chemo brain ranging between 17 and 75 percent.

[One study of 42 women found] ..even nearly eight months after finishing chemo, 61 percent of patients continued to show cognitive decline, and nearly a third had developed new deficits.

Meanwhile, an imaging study found brain volume reductions in breast cancer survivors even 20 years after chemotherapy ended

Chemotherapy is not the only cancer treatment associated with cognitive problems. Chemo brain also occurs with targeted biologic therapies such as trastuzumab (Herceptin) and hormonal therapies, like tamoxifen.

One study found worse deficits in women who received chemotherapy followed by tamoxifen than in women who received chemotherapy only. The difference could be due to the anti-estrogen effects of tamoxifen, a hormone that is important for brain health.

They also conclude that even surgery can create “cognitive impairment” – another way to say “brain damage”:

Cognitive deficits can occur even in the absence of chemotherapy. A study in young men (average age of 31) with testicular cancer found that 40 percent exhibited cognitive impairment after surgery but before chemotherapy. The authors theorize that the deficits could be related to the effects of inflammatory cytokines (chemicals released by the body because of stress that can cause inflammation), which are associated with cognitive decline, or to an immune response to the cancer itself that damaged brain cells.

http://journals.lww.com/neurologynow/Fulltext/2014/10020/Chemo_Brain__Cognitive_problems_after_cancer.13.aspx

Unfortunately, to a man with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.  So, rather than get patients to forego dangerous surgery and toxic chemical napalms in favour of lifestyle changes and natural approaches, the authors peer into their own patented chemical toolkit for an answer – and they might as well end up using a hammer:

Certain medications may also help.  Physicians may prescribe psychostimulants like methylphenidate (Ritalin), certain antidepressants, or modafinil (Provigil) or armodafinil (Nuvigil), which are approved for excessive daytime sleepiness.

The way corporations make money is to come up with something they can protect by patents.  And this means chemicals!  So, ever since the takeover of medicine by corporations, every medical problem – whether real or perceived, whether caused by infections, degenerative diseases or our lifestyle – has been turned into a chemical problem.  As soon as mental illness is defined as a chemical imbalance, in steps the salesman with some nifty chemicals to sort everything out.

ritalin

Ritalin side effects include psychosis (abnormal thinking or hallucinations), difficulty sleeping, stomach aches, diarrhea, headaches, lack of hunger (leading to weight loss) and dry mouth, in some cases also including death.

The only problem is that tampering with the brain and body – both far more complex and nuanced than man understands at present – causes more problems than it solves.  For example, it was reported this month that teenagers on antidepressants are twice as likely to attempt suicide.  Like chemotherapy, it’s a supremely profitable business:

Prescribing antidepressants has become common practice, with 164 million prescriptions written for antidepressants in 2008. Sales of SSRIs, specifically, increased by 32 percent from 2000 to 2004, to a combined total of $10.9 billion.

http://www.drugwatch.com/ssri/suicide/

The SSRIs are associated with a doubled risk of suicide, and the unnatural feeling of no longer being in control of your own brain causes suicide to be “a welcome alternative”:

In tests of Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro and Luvox on children with major depressive disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and other psychiatric disorders, about 4 percent of patients experienced suicidal thinking, behavior or attempts. In the placebo group, 2 percent of the participants experienced similar problems.

Antidepressants have also been linked to akathisia, which is extreme restlessness and an inability to sit still. The discomfort can be so great that suicide becomes a welcome alternative to feeling this type of agitation. Sometimes akathisia is misdiagnosed as worsening depression, so medication dosage is increased, causing the restlessness to persist.

At least one antidepressant can have a stimulant effect similar to amphetamines, which can lead to suicide. A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official responsible for evaluating adverse drug effects during the approval process of Prozac repeatedly warned that the drug could have this effect.

Methylphenidate is a nervous system stimulant more or les indistinguishable from the widley-abused amphetamines.  “Speed” was eventually classed as a highly addictive drug (or, in cotton wool language, one with “high abuse potential”) and its use steadily declined under the weight of the law and public opprobium.  However, the chemical companies were not about to let a goldmine like that get filled in with sand.

Thus it followed that with a little rebranding and re-education of doctors, methylphenidate was marketed under the name Ritalin, and is dispensed so freely via doctors that in 1995, 10-12% of all boys between the ages of 6 and 14 in America were on it.  Even GM-polluted Cheerios couldn’t boast that kind of success.

The backlash from this meant that companies selling this stuff had to foght back, so they started funding parent groups demanding its continued use:

The INCB is also concerned that the use of Ritalin is being actively promoted by an influential parent association, which has received significant financial contributions from the preparation’s leading United States manufacturer.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/medicating/backlash/un.html

That was back in 1995.  How about now? Well, in the last 20 years there has been a 30 fold increase in ADD meds, and currently four million children and teens in America are taking Ritalin right now.

What’s wrong with pouring chemicals into the brain?  Plenty!  Not only has nearly every one of Amercia’s recent mass shootings (apart from phoney staged events like Sandy Hook) been linked to anti depressants, here’s just a sample of the results of amphetamine-type drugs like Ritalin.

Shawn Cooper, a 15-year-old sophomore at Notus Junior-Senior High School in Notus, Idaho, fired a shotgun at his fellow students in April. Cooper was on Ritalin.

Thomas Solomon, a 15-year-old at Heritage High School in Conyers, Ga., shot and wounded six classmates in May. Solomon was on Ritalin.

Kip Kinkel, a 15-year-old at Thurston High School in Springfield, Ore., killed his parents and two classmates and wounded 22 other students last year. Kinkel was on Ritalin and Prozac, an anti-depressant.

Eric Harris, one of the Columbine High School killers, was on the anti-depressant drug Luvox. Luvox is prescribed for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and depression.

*Rod Matthews, 14, beat a classmate to death with a baseball bat in 1986 in Canton, Mass. Matthews had been on Ritalin since the third grade.

(Washington Times)

If anyone doubts the profitable nature of drugs, consider that only this month Pfizer was willing and able to bid $120 billion forAstrazeneca – a 45% mark up on Astrazeneca’s April share price – on the basis of the latter’s new chemical patents just around the corner.  I’ve read that Astrazeneca is in charge of all breast cancer information literature produced by the supposedly impartial Cancer Society – and small wonder, with sums like this at stake.  Pfizer itself is so profitable that one of their incentives for the takeover was shifting their accountancy base to the UK and saving $1,4 billion a year in taxes.

http://blogs.channel4.com/factcheck/factcheck-hooked-ritalin/14144

In a long-term study in the British Journal of Psychiatry, Stephen Ilyas and Joanna Moncrieff found rising trends in prescriptions for most psychiatric drugs

The bid failed because Astrazeneca claimed their new chemical stuff made the company worth much more than $120 billion.  Weirdly, Astrazeneca account for 2% of all British exports.  All this from a company selling chemicals via doctors!  With massive funds like this changing hands, do you really think they want you to stay healthy?

If a chemical is so toxic that nobody in their right mind would ingest it – if it’s even used as rat poison – how to sell it?  That’s easy!  Put it in the water and tell people it prevents cavities!  Sodium Fluoride and Hydrofluosilicic acid – both classed as highly unstable corrosive poisons – are added to the water in most of the USA and much of the UK.  A recent Harvard study found that the IQ of children in fluroidated areas was significantly lower than in non-fluoridated areas – and it was the 30th study to find the same thing.

Fluoride makes no difference at all to cavities.  Countries without it have the same or better states of dental health.  The situation is quite the reverse: dentists in America are alarmed because children are turning up with their teeth eaten away by the continual, caustic action of fluoride swishing around the enamel.

But people aren’t easily dissuaded from something if a calm professional in a white lab coat recommends it, and of course bone-headed skeptics keep “making the case for fluoride”.  It’s long been known that these chemical toxins and industrial waste sludges (which are not the naturally occuring fluoride or its anion, fluorine) accumulate in the bones and cause cancer, especially in children.  And then?  Well, congratulations – you’re now a customer for the cancer industry.  Step right this way for some more chemicals!

When sneaking your chemicals into schools or bribing parents fails, the only thing for it is that last refuge of the scoundrel – government.  Monsanto is facing a hefty backlash worldwide from people waking up to the idea of being poisoned by chemical stuff in colourful packaging.

They’ve had the assistance of the ever-corporate media in hushing all this up – a series of worldwide marches last week went completely unreported in the papers – but they’re not about to rely only on the largesse of paid hacks. This handy chart gives you some idea of how well fortified they are within the government of America:

monsanto_government

If you’ve trusted me enough to read this far, you’re going to feel in need of some welcome news.  So here it is!  Apparently a recent study showed those who exhibit a greater sense of trust in others have a proportionately smaller chance of developing dementia:

Anna-Maija Tolppanen, one of the study’s authors and a professor at the University of Eastern Finland: “we have seen some studies that show people who are more open and optimistic have a lower risk for dementia so we thought this was a good question to ask.”

The study tested 1,449 people with an average age of 71. The study participants took a test for dementia. A separate test measured their level of cynicism. Both tests are considered reliable by researchers.

The cynicism test asks if the person agrees with statements like “Most people will use somewhat unfair reasons to gain profit or an advantage rather than lose it”; “I think most people would lie to get ahead”; and “It is safer to trust nobody.”

Those who agreed with the critical statements in the test were considered highly cynical. The people with the highest level of cynical distrust had a 2.54 times greater risk of dementia than those with the lowest cynicism rating.

http://wwlp.com/2014/05/28/cynicism-linked-to-greater-dementia-risk-study-says/

Regular readers will already be aware of the soothing effects of meditation, altruism, generosity, gratitude and fasting – so now I guess we can add trust to the list.

That’s all for today – stay well!

The Daily Psychic

Some time back, in preparation for a new debunking TV show, the writer Richard Dawkins had a discussion with an invited guest, the scientist Rupert Sheldrake.

Sheldrake had sent beforehand a number of research papers showing that psychic events, or extra-sensory perception, were a normal part of everyday life and a standard, if unexplained, faculty of the mamallian brain.  In fact animals rely on this ability daily, and as they don’t know enough to dismiss it out of hand they act on it with full confidence.  This explains why a cat is suddenly very hard to find before a carefully disguised visit to the vet, and why dogs pace up and down in front of the door from the moment the owner decides to return home, and also show distress when disaster befalls an owner, regardless of the distance involved in either case.

tesla intuitionAnyway, the sticking point came when Dawkins admitted he’d dismissed the idea without bothering to read the carefully assembled research, which caused a heated argument between the two men.  “What I don’t like about you is you’re prepared to believe anything!”, Dawkins exclaimed, then falling back on the deliberately confusing canard, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”  But Sheldrake was having none of it, and neatly snipped Dawkins’ linguistic mobius strip by explaining that because psychic events were part of practically every person’s experience they were not extraordinary, but ordinary.  Since Dawkins’ assertion required that everyone was deluded – an outlandish claim indeed – where was his extraordinary evidence?

Sheldrake declined to appear on the show since, contrary to assurances from a producer’s assistant, his scientific research was strictly disallowed.  But psychic events are indeed a part of everyday life, and one good example is a dream I had three nights ago.

In the dream, I was fiddling with our central heating unit which was emitting blue flames when my daughter – who in real life was away at the time, and with whom I had not spoken for a week – asked me if someone was in the shower upstairs.  Actually, we don’t have a shower upstairs, but somehow we did in the dream.  Of course not, I reassured her, as it was just the two of us in the house.  She became agitated and said, “but dad, the door is shut, and the shower’s on full.”

I went upstairs and that was indeed the case.  Opening the door I first noticed the shower glass, and reaching towards it was startled by what looked like a fuzzy black silhouette of a man flitting eerily from the right side of the room to the left.  Full of protective paternal instinct I hurled myself at the black shape with a blood curdling yell.  Having shouted out loud I woke myself up with a start, the eery noise of my own half paralysed voice lingering in my ears, and with a disturbed feeling which took a while to shake off.

Last night my daughter came around and since the dream was the most exciting thing that had happened in the days she’d been away – apart from my friend’s incredible art show! – I began to relate it in detail.  But as I did so a change came over her face.  She told me to stop talking; I was scaring her.

Apparently three days prior she’d been watching a particularly frightening American Horror TV programme ..in which the villain was a menacing shadow in the shower.  I’ve never heard of it – but then I don’t own a TV.

And my friend’s art show at the Mall Galleries near Trafalgar Square, did very well indeed! But I’m sure you sensed that.

Phenomenal Solar Non-Eclipse!

A series of unlikely coincidences will lead to a stunning non-eclipse of the Sun today - for the first time in over one thousand, five hundred days.

For, due to reasons astronomers still do not fully understand, during a few moments on April 8th 2014 the nearest star in the galaxy named Milky Way will actually be visible to the naked eye from certain places in the United Kingdom.

327123_265533826838208_321141098_o

“A” is for aerosol, among other words: these more familiar skies will return very shortly, according to the Royal Society, producer of helpful information on geo-engineering. “The public should not be alarmed,” their spokesman said this morning. “Chemical trails will indeed be visible on all other days of the year.”

Supernatural Intervention, or Science Fact?

On this landmark day, chemical trails laid by unregistered, unmarked white jets not known to the CAA or FAA, not carrying ADS-B (automated dependent surveillance broadcast equipment) and appearing only on military radar screens will briefly cease to criss cross the sky in their usual persistent, elongated orbits leading to almost unprecedented clarity of the atmosphere.

During this rarely witnessed non-eclipse, light rays emitted by a star some 93 million miles distant will be able to enter the Earth’s atmosphere and reach the ground unobstructed by the normal smears of milky white strips of reflective particles sprayed in aerosol form.  Not to mention what’s left of the ozone layer, decimated by several years of chemical spraying. “It is one of the drawbacks of spraying sulfuric acid over the planet,” admitted geoengineer David Keith on the Colbert Report, “but on the other hand, it forces us to acknowledge the situation.  Let’s poke the system and see what happens!”

observers

“What on Earth is it?” Incredulous residents of Bedford, April 8th 2014.

Unchanged Melody

Members of the public will want to make the most of what might be a once in a lifetime chance to see an actual star, something which, until the geo-engineering advances proposed by ex-weapons physicist and bass player Ken Caldeira and Carnegie Mellon-backed David Keith, was clearly visible throughout mankind’s entire four million year history, with only occasional obstruction by water vapour in the form of airborne clouds.

a day of chemtrails

Milky waif: schools were closed today throughout Bedfordshire during a startling lack of chemical trails usually appearing every single day of the year regardless of atmospheric conditions – whether dry, wet, freezing. ambient, warm or blisteringly hot – making their momentary disappearance something of a cosmic puzzle

 Skeptic Tanked

But some scholars remained unconvinced that a chemtrail-free non-eclipse could be a genuine event, or even be possible, given NATO’s daily, relentless trashing of the sky – and warned people not to attribute their disappearance to supernatural causes.

Carlos Santana Supernatural Bobby Wylde

Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana, creator of the album Supernatural, advised followers to remain calm. “During this non-eclipse I will play in the key of Dm,” he said, lighting an incense stick, adjusting his hat to a rakish angle and cranking up his valve-driven Mesa Boogie amp to 12 (Painting: Bobby Wylde)

“There has to be a mistake in the calculations,” warned Professor Stephen Hawking, perhaps the world’s most intelligent scientist and author of the best-selling “A Brief History of Time”. “We should all resist the urge to jump to fantastic conclusions: such situations must have a logical cause, even if at the present incomplete state of our knowledge, we have no idea what they may be.” 

“In any case, the laws of physics would never permit such an unnatural event to last for more than a few moments.  It is my opinion that either NATO temporarily ran out of fuel, or the chemtrails themselves are hidden by surrounding buildings.”

Either way, the general public was guaranteed a phenomenal light show, albeit for only a few brief, euphoric moments.  Observers in MP Nadine Dorries’ chemtrail-laden town of Bedford were incredulous, with all schools closed – and with some experts wondering if it was even safe to venture outside.

eclipse3

“It is very strange! My great grandparents often told of a golden glowing ball in a deep blue sky. Of course, we laughed – the sky is always milky white, from January to December. Is it a cosmic sign?”

solar_ 027

In all the excitement, don’t get carried away – use smoked glass or a pinhole camera, or hide behind a bush; supervise young children who may find the abnormal situation frightening; keep pets indoors.  A government helpline (0800-CHEMSPRAY) suggested staying in a darkened room to watch TV, and promised that normal spraying would continue first thing tomorrow

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Footnote, April 9th: unregistered jets resumed normal spraying from 05:30, blanketing the sun with thick, milky white haze and calming the residents of Bedford once again. Phew – we all know how dangerous those stars are!

And April 10th – the carnage continues!  (Here’s a timelapse showing how these babies began, and how they looked an hour later)

The Year of Living Naturally

It’s been twelve months since I was diagnosed with cancer and judging by the reactions of the doctors I seem to have already beaten the odds, which leads me to believe I will in all likelihood continue to do so.

If anyone thinks I flouted medical recommendations out of recklessness, they’d be mistaken.  I refused chemo, radical neck dissection and radiation only because none of them work worth a damn.  Even a Professor in the Harley Street ENT clinic did not, when asked, produce a shred of evidence or any studies that showed they did. Research shows the opposite: chemo contributes barely 2% towards five year survival in America and Australia, and even then, only in very rare cases of cancer, while ruining 100% of the bodies it touches.  And how could it possibly work? With only a static molecule it shaves the tumours at a lumbering, clumsy rate compared to the fast-as-light efforts of those cells to stay alive, while coaxing the surviving parts to become super-tumours, and in the process destroys your own body along with the only mechanism which can protect you.

Maybe people turn to chemo because they don’t want to change anything in their life, or don’t understand the problem, or because of wishful thinking that if someone else tackles it they’ll succeed; despite the chaos having welled up for years from within (cancer cells, being about 12 micron across, will number more than 100,000 in a cubic millimetre. By the time the tumour’s presence can be felt, they will number in their hundreds of millions, or even in the billions) they expect a cure to come from a flamethrower outside.  But we’ve been through all that already, so let’s look at what a person can do for themselves.

Researchers compared every possible diet and found that the most natural was best.  And a study of all deaths in the United States in 1990 showed that only 20,000 were due to drugs, while 800,000 were due to tobacco, a diet of plastics and chemicals, and alcohol.

Amid the clamor, Dr. David Katz is emerging as an iconoclast on the side of reason. At least, that’s how he describes himself. From his throne at Yale University’s Prevention Research Center, where he is a practicing physician and researcher, said sea of popular diet media is the institution against which he rebels.

It’s not that nutrition science is corrupt, just that the empty promises of memetic, of-the-moment diet crazes are themselves junk food. To Katz they are more than annoying and confusing; they are dangerous injustice. (Atlantic.com)

diets

From Atlantic.com – from a range of diets, the elements producing the most health were natural and plant based

If conditions in my body had created the tumours, only reversing them cold stop the spread, if not dismantle them.  So the first thing I did was get rid of all sugars, processed food, coffee and alcohol in my diet.  This meant, respectively, that the tumours were no longer getting the glucose energy they needed to grow, I was no longer ingesting saturated fat molecules which were slowly suffocating my cells, and I was no longer reducing my (intracellular) pH levels.

I replaced these with juiced vegetables, the Budwig diet, and as much organic produce as I could get.  These steps in turn provided fresh enzymes and raised my pH, started to re-invigorate my cell respiration with healthy unsaturated fat molecules, and no longer had to worry about genetically polluted food loaded with toxins and pesticides.

Changing the habits of a lifetime to turn the body around is bound to take time.  But there are loads of other things a person can do.  Firstly you can drastically reduce the toxins you’re absorbing every day.  Any aftershave or perfume with “fragrance” on the label already has at least 400 chemicals in it which the skin and glands will absorb.

Drinking mineral water instead of tap water means you’re no longer accumulating fluoride – which is not naturally occurring fluoride but a toxic factory waste called either sodium fluoride or hydrofluosilicic acid, which is described as an “unstable, poisonous corrosive”, in your own body.  This stuff is so feared that spillages require hazmat suits, and China pays America to take hundreds of tons of it off their hands.  The Soviets freely admitted following Nazi Germany’s lead in adding it to their concentration camp water, to make the prisoners “docile, subservient, and stupid”.  Trust me, this is not going to help your health!

immune1

Simplified immune system chart. You should see the complicated one!

Changing shampoo from a tar-based (carcinogenic) product to a natural one, and using a fluroide-free toothpaste further reduces the load on the struggling immune system.  Membranes under the tongue dissolve chemicals in the mouth straight to the bloodstream, but the FDA don’t know anything about this!  Because you’re advised not to swallow toothpaste and mouthwash, manufacturers can put whatever they like in it, and that means whatever makes the most money: importing toxic sludge that nobody wants, then selling it to people to wash their mouth out is a capitalist’s dream.  The burning sensation from mouthwash is exactly that – a forest fire of the essential environment in the delicate membranes, carrying the damage straight into the bloodstream, to find its way into the liver and kidneys.

Even dental floss comes with a coat of teflon and petroleum – the last things you want being rubbed into gums or into small cuts made by the floss itself; natural silk floss lasts longer anyway.  Stop using vaseline on your lips, as it’s only a short hop away from gasoline.  How do you think they came up with the name?

Enzymes like bromelain, papain, trypsin and chymotrypsin can be obtained in capsule form, and they gradually chip away at the tough protection around tumours.  Bromelain comes from pineapples, concentrated in the core, and remains potent even as the fruit rots. Papain comes from the papaya fruit and works best at higher temperatures, so is perfect for feeding to the body in papaya tea.  Taken apart from meals, the enzymes are free to find sources of inflammation and congestion and do their thing.  They are the fastest mechanical machines on Earth, performing as many as 30,000 cycles of locking, cutting, and ejection per second.  How did these coffee grinders find their way into the DNA of fruit?

superoxide dismutase

Superoxide dismutase

In melons there is another enzyme the body makes less of as you grow older: superoxide dismutase.  This machine processes O2 molecules which have been negatively charged by the addition of an extra electron (forming a dangerous “superoxide”) at the absolutely stunning rate of one million superoxides per second.  At first researchers assumed this machine couldn’t work anywhere near that quick since it couldn’t randomly come into contact with that many O2- molecules in a second.  But nature isn’t random, and her technology always exceeds the imagination of man!  They looked closer to investigate the recorded speed of reactions: it turns out the mouth of this marvellous bit of nanotech has electrically charged flaps which attract the superoxides like a vacuum cleaner sucks in dirt – throwing the corrected parts out the other end at an even faster rate.

You’ll never see this kind of technology in the human world because the design is too complicated.  Manmade enzymes copied from natural ones (made different to obtain copyright) work at about 2 reactions per second. Nature holds all the best patents, and inside these machines are sprung, hinged, static and rotating components which require a superhuman understanding of the interactions between thousands of electrically varying surfaces of amino acids all in motion at every instant.  These things self-assemble from a 2-dimensional strip, meaning even 3d printing isn’t new – the ribosome has been doing it for more than three billion years.  Remember that a year ago no engineer in Europe or America was able to make for me a large-size teaching aid of a working hemoglobin molecule despite having the complete assembly plans laid out in front of them, and knowing in advance the electrical properties of each component.  Too complicated, I was told!

The other thing I do is get as much sunshine as possible: something difficult to do when the sun is obscured by NATO chemtrails practically every day.  The sun activates hundreds of genes – vitamin D is only one benefit but it’s a big one, as studies show D can break down fibroid cancers.  And forget about sunscreen – sunscreen itself seems to be causing melanomas after the skin soaks up the strong chemicals and the immune system has yet another battle on its hands.  Just use your own sense of when enough is enough – and maybe wear a hat!

A great find is using coconut oil butter instead of margarine.  One teaspoon of margarine has enough useles, suffocating saturated fat molecules to provide 50,000 of them to every cell in your body.  On the other hand, the coconut (cold pressed, organic only) product has medium chain fatty acids which neurons can also use as a source of energy. It survives heating, so can be used for cooking.  You can’t beat natural technology – all the products are compatible with each other and fully compatible with the human body!  When did you last see a warning on blueberries to consume no more than 10 per day?

When a giant hand reaches out from the Earth to offer you food, it seems churlish to refuse

Visualisation has been strongly linked to extended survival in cancer patients, and this ties in with the work of Bruce Lipton.  Lipton was a genetic scientist when he found that cells taken from an unwell person and put in a neutral environment actually did very well and exhibited more energetic characteristics.  He theorised that it was the environment created by the individual which was damaging the cell, as there was nothing wrong with the cell itself.

This led him to wonder: where was the brain of the cell?  He was able to show, by removing the entire DNA, that a cell could live just as well without it.  It maintained itself, moved towards food sources, and reacted away from toxins.  He realised the cell’s outer membrane was loaded with sensors designed to pick up given stimuli from the environment and believes it is this array of detectors and their associated interior signalling mechanisms which form the true brain of the cell.  This is why the emotional environment is so critical to recovery, something my father, a hematologist, noticed from his work more than two decades ago.

Dr Joanna Budwig herself noticed her therapies didn’t work on women who remained in abusive marriages.  This alarming idea tells you something important about the roots of disorder in our bodies, and something useful about the immune system – do what makes you happy!  In California the son of the famed Joseph Issels, Christian Issels stared at me over his desk: “when you go back, don’t go back and do the same thing- it’s not working.”  So now I give myself more time for technical projects rather than trying to impress with speed of delivery. People aren’t impressed with speed unless they understand the difficulty of the job, and they can’t be expected to; the faster you deliver, the less people think it’s worth.  There’s no hurry – maybe despite what the doctors say, you’ve got time.

Another thing you can do is get to the gym: after you start imbibing vegetables and dumping processed foods you find yourself with more energy, but if you want to kick start this process, get some Ubiquinol, which is the reduced form of Ubiquinone.  This molecule is produced less by the body as we age, and noticeably so after about 35. It forms part of the electron handling chain within the mitochondria – the mitochondria is the area holding tens of thousands of the astonishing ATP synthase, described elsewhere in this blog.

Rather than getting a kick from coffee which ruins your pH and produces a lethargic and addictive coming down period, go natural.  After exercise, the additional resources the muscles consume mean less to feed the tumour.  Just a change in diet caused me to drop 18kg (about 39 lbs) in 12 months.  Imagine finding you’ve been carrying a bowling ball around for a decade and the difference in wellbeing when you finally put it down!  Following the natural hours of sleep allows the body to heal faster.  I could have said this whole post in one phrase: go natural.  But you want proof!

And only last week I started some yoga lessons – this is great for expanding and stretching the limbs to help the lymphatic system.  The teacher is talented and very patient, the class very accepting of one who has the flexibility of a brick, and room is calm and quiet.  The world stands still for an hour while, amidst like minds, you get to grips with your own self.

Now that’s what I call a prescription!

I’ve been in this town so long that back in the city
I’ve been taken for lost and gone
And unknown for a long long time

Heroes and Villains  Brian Wilson/Van Dyke Parks

February 2014′s Scientific American contains a very interesting article called An Indirect Way to Tame Cancer, also featured on the cover as A New Way to Tame Cancer.  Its authour, Rakesh K Jain, is “a professor of tumour biology, director of the Edwin L Steele Laboratory for Tumour Biology in the radiation oncology department of Massachusets General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He is also a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine – one of only 20 people ever to have been elected to all three bodies.” (SciAm Feb 2014, p34)

Scientific-American-February-2014

A new way to tame cancer, made necessary by the new way to prepare food on an industrial scale!

Professor Jain writes that for forty years he’s been analysing cancer from an unusual angle, namely how a tumour’s structural mechanics help it survive, grow, protect it from our defences, and deflect the oncologist’s deadly chemical assaults in a way the rest of our body is sadly unable to.  The unpalateable fact is that tumours have ways to survive chemical attacks that their human hosts lack; though both perish together, at the moment before death the former is flourishing better than ever.

Look at it this way: the tumour cell already figured out how to cope without enough oxygen by converting its machinery to make use of glucose, and knows the best way to survive in that state is to abandon whatever tasks it had in its previous incarnation as part of our body, and focus on staying alive.  What makes us think a lumbering, static chemical is going to stop a group of several billion pirates all using the mind-boggling speeds of cellular machinery to design and assemble pumps which eject the poison and keep their ship afloat?

This is why people look for alternatives – because our heavy-handed chemical attacks on cancer simply don’t work.  Your only hope is the immune system, the only thing those chemicals are succeeding in tearing to pieces.  While it’s being savaged by this barrage of oncological napalm it puts defense of the body on hold, so patients frequently die of an infection a newborn baby would shrug off in its sleep.  A patient, like me, is told that without chemo he will die in a certain number of months.  But this assumes the patient conforms to the pattern observed by the oncologist – who only sees patients adopting chemo.  He does not see the number who are completely unaware they even have a tumour, or those othes who muster their immune system and reinvigorate their cells.

In fact a 2008 Norwegian study took 100,000 women presenting with breast cancer and divided them into two groups.  One group did nothing except report regularly about their health; the other had regular mammograms.  After six years the 50,000 taking mammograms were found to have 22% more tumours than the group who did nothing.  This means either that mammograms amplify tumours, or, that the immune is capable of digesting at least 22% of tumours on its own.  Or perhaps both.  So if that whole group were to boost their immune, remove toxic loads from chemicals and foods, and involve the mind (visualisation techniques strongly correlate with extended life expectancy) the percentage experiencing tumour reduction would unquestionably be far higher, perhaps even forming the vast majority.

Perhaps unbeknownst to Professor Jain, his research may have solved a seventy year old mystery in successful alternative therapy.  Many people who dodge the draft into becoming cannon fodder for conventional medicine’s almighty war against tumours, and flee over the border to alternative therapies often find their cancers remain stable, and even shrink, after a brief period in which, inexplicably, they grow – maybe at last, we know why.

muhammad-ali-thesweetscience_a0b42

All time hero – when Muhammad Ali refused the draft to Vietnam, the US government retaliated by removing his licence to earn a living boxing. But this backfired spectacularly, as Ali forged a new career speaking on campuses. In a famous confrontation with a white student demanding to know why Ali had refused to fight for his fellow countrymen, he replied: “Why should I go six thousand miles to kill black people that I ain’t got no quarrel with? It’s the white man that holds us down, the white man keeps us in slavery, the white man puts us in prisons. You want me to go six thousand miles to fight for your rights? You won’t even stand up for mine at home!”

Jain’s insights into engineering enabled him to see that the solidity of the “matrix” (an extraordinarily dense tangle of collagen fibres and gel-type components forming part of the cancerous mass) creates a compressive force which can strangle blood vessels before they have a chance to deliver their toxic chemical payload to the actual tumour cells.  The matrix can also trap the now drifting drug molecules, preventing them from being effective elsewhere, and cut off the oxygen supply to the tumour cells.  But cancer cells don’t need much oxygen; just as they can eventually strangle their host, at a more intimate level they begin by strangling the bodily processes.

As mentioned elsewhere, exposing tumours to chemotherapy can practically be an act of suicide, tantamount to spinning a giant revolver barrel holding 98 bullets, plus only two empty chambers.  The situation has stayed this way for longer even than the 40 years Professor Jain has been wondering how to increase the assault on the tumour, even though the tumour is only the final product of cancer’s long process within the body.  So often, science focuses its brightest minds on a small area of expertise hoping to improve man’s lot, only to end up restricting damage caused by its efforts elsewhere.  A specialist by definition never sees the big picture, and even if he could, his credibility is strictly limited to his own field; medicine comprises only of specialists.  A tide which rises and falls but essentially stays in the same place has characterised cancer research, and people are only now starting to understand why.

Otto Warburg Nobel PrizeIt has been known since Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg’s 1930′s investigation of the cell’s respiratory mechanism that depriving human cells of oxygen for long enough will turn them cancerous: that is, they ingeniously resort to glucose as an alternative source of energy and become undifferentiated, stepping back in evolutionary time.  This wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t also dodge the body’s restraining systems and multiply unchecked.  These sloppy dropouts create acidic waste which permeates their surroundings; hemoglobin doesn’t work properly in low pH environments so the regular influx of oxygen aboard its four marvellous sprung iron platforms can’t gradually return the area to normal.

As the American doctor Rigden Lentz explained to me two weeks ago while I was considering when best to attend his clinic near Salzberg, chemotherapy, which he was administered for two decades, can only affect the 15-20% of tumour cells duplicating at any one time.  The remaining group, at least five times greater in number, use the exposure to come up with a formidable chemical-ejecting pump.  Therefore, even repeated chemo sessions can never “get it all” and become ineffective when surviving cells develop machinery to eject the molecules, and shared the DNA of these pumps with their neighboring cells.  Cancer cells 20 micron or less in diameter could form a mob of 125,000 in the space of a cubic millimetre.  If the condition of the body, the milieu which spawned the tumour, is left unchanged it can be easily understood why these cells have a 100% chance of setting up shop elsewhere once the protective fence of the immune system is burnt down.

Notice that the frantic engineering within these cells does not result, as Darwin stipulated it must, from random mutations passed on to the progeny.  This intellectual concept only arises as a rebuttal to the claim that every instance of life is born with intelligence, a dangerous position, for it implies the intelligence must have existed first, and therefore, in some other form. But thinking is changing, and as James Shapiro writes in Evolution, a View from the 21st Century, “Life requires cognition at all levels.” The random mutation theory means all progress proceeds only from errors, collecting on a massive scale.  But the very concept of an error requires a law-bound, predictable system in whose context an error can be detected and labelled as such; the existence of such a cohesive environment is therefore undeniable.

If random mutations generated cell machinery then every possible creation would be emerging all the time, and our odds of beating the misshapen output would be astronomical.  But the aim of the tumour cell, as in every cell, is to stay alive, and in evolutionary terms these creations must – and do – happen instantaneously: the tens of thousands of ribosomes get to work producing the pumps, the DNA is shared between cells, and before long the oncologists are softening the news once again and suggesting palliative care.

Plum and Spilt Milk

Maybe it wasn’t organic, but boy, was it good food. Plum and Spilt Milk, near London’s St Pancras Station

Last week I had the great pleasure to meet with two old friends in London, one of whom has been in the care of the best doctors in the land for nearly three years to deal with a very persistent form of skin cancer. Cancer is a town we find ourselves dwelling in through no choice of our own, and one of its few pleasures is forging bonds with neighbours who, also seeking escape, at once pool their map fragments with yours.

In fact I never met another cancer patient who held back even for a moment their true thoughts or stood aloof from friendship; they forget differences and overlook flaws; they never waste time.  We compared my alternative experiments to his allopathic ones, sadly finding common ground only in losing those friends unable to bear the lingering presence of a spectre at their feast.

After a year of radiotherapy and two more of chemo he concluded that the specialists had eventually turned to experimenting, with hardly much progress to show for it.  To deal with the chemicals’ toxic effects he had been put on a course of strong steroids with no warning that it would make him so aggressive and suspicious that his marriage would almost come to grief.  In the end, so many different chemicals were being given at one time they were referred to by an acronym of five letters.  He returned to smoking, defiantly declaring it less toxic than chemo.  What was next? “I want to work again! I want to get back to my life!”

organic

A new feast: organic prescription! If you’re interested in Angiotensin II, you may want to see the pyramid near Cairo erected in his name

I asked about his pH level, and his reply surprised me:  “What? I have no idea!”  Despite three years of life and death consultations, nobody had mentioned one of the most vital tools in the cancer patient’s armoury, by far the easiest to measure, and perhaps even the biggest single culprit: the intra-cellular potential of hydrogen!  Blood pH is kept constant partly via acidic deposits and alkaline withdrawals to and from the tissues.

Cancer follows the bankruptcy of the immune system, and the pH mechanism is one of the first accounts to be bled dry; the low pH measurement – equivalent to red ink all over the balance sheet – would be a telltale sign of looming catastrophe, if anyone cared to look.  pH is usually very low in cancer patients and much higher in those with a healthy diet.  Mine when diagnosed was about 5.5 and a year later, a more healthy 7.5, but was 8 for some weeks after I returned from California – 8 being 200 times greater than 5.5, and 7.5 being 100 times better, since each notch on the scale represents a increase of 10x.

madoff-and-the-social-security-system

Raising energy now by using food which slowly suffocates the body is, like the $17 trillion US debt, a loudly cheered, glittering Ponzi scheme.  Today is fun, while the end is bankruptcy – cancer – made far worse by a chemical razing of the immune system precisely when you need it the most

As collagen formed the lattice which lent the matrix its solidity, Professor Jain’s idea was to use a drug which cut down collagen.  After some false starts his search eventually bore fruit as he experimented on cancerous mice using losartan; losartan lowers blood pressure by inhibiting a hormone called angiotensin II, and impairs another molecule which stabilises collagen.  This created the always elusive dose-dependent response (more dose, more response – a measurement often hidden by confounding elements like placebo responses and statistical error) cutting down the collagen around tumours and increasing the diffusion of 100 nanometer test particles, standing in for chemical molecules.  To give you an idea of the forces involved, these particles are only 200-1,000 times the width of an atom, and you could put 10,000 of them side by side in a millimeter – though trying it was a waste of an afternoon – so anything restricting movement on this miraculously tiny scale is doing a very thorough security job indeed.

Jain hopes that research into this therapy will yield conclusions in about two years, and I can’t wait to see it.  Nor could any patient afford to wait such an absurd period!  But fortunately there is a quicker way – by a factor of around fifty times:

Many people with hypertension have benefited from following a DASH diet. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It consists of a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, poultry, fish and nuts and is low in saturated fat, red meat, sweets and beverages containing sugar. The eating plan has been proven to lower blood pressure in just 14 days. A clinical study showed that reductions in blood pressure were about as large as what drug therapy can do for mild high blood pressure.

Specific foods that are helpful for lowering blood pressure are fish, garlic, onions, celery, mung bean, bladderwrack (a seaweed), maitake mushroom and pomegranate. In a clinical study, two ounces of pomegranate juice concentrate (equivalent to approximately 8 ounces juice) everyday for two weeks reduced high blood pressure in hypertensive patients. The effect was attributed to a reduction in angiotensin converting enzyme by 36 percent. It is this enzyme that is targeted by blood pressure medications known as ACE-inhibitors.

Rene_M_Caisse

Rene Caisse (1888 – 1978) on her 90th, and last, birthday

Here’s the fascinating part: Jain points out that the compressive force within a tumour is so strong that when cut in half, the two halves immediately swell up.  This remarkable claim means a longstanding puzzle has now been solved, in a very surprising way: cancer patients who used Rene Caisse‘s herbal tea in North America (they included JFK’s personal physician, who attributed his cure to it, and would have included Eva Peron but for her dismissal of the idea) and those who adopt German doctor Joanna Budwig‘s diet both report tumour swelling before a healing period in which the tumours gradually receded or became inert.  The explanation can only be that the matrix itself was somehow severed or degraded, releasing the compression, and enabling a convoy of various restorative elements to trundle through at last.

Caisse would inject her herbal mix directly into the site of tumours where possible, and the results could be dramatic.  Injecting into a tumour on a patient’s tongue caused the tongue to swell almost immediately to double its size, much to everyone’s alarm; it was held in place by Caisse and an attending physician using a surgical appliance.  The tongue soon reduced in size, and fluid oozed from the tumour site, something frequently reported by Caisse’s patients; the patient later made a full recovery.

Joanna Budwig

Joanna Budwig (1908 – 2003)

In Joanna Budwig’s case,  the staple of her diet is a mix of flax seed oil and quark, or cottage cheese, in a 1:2 ratio.  Flax seed oil has the effect of thinning blood – part of the mechanism sought by Professor Jain.  Budwig’s mix has the additional benefit – in fact the main one – of re-oxygenating the cells as it contains unsaturated fats which gradually restore the aerobic mechanisms damaged by a steady diet of saturated fats, their nutrition ruined by the needs of manufacturing, and ruinous to the cells. When such a diet is also highly acidic (colas and soft drinks have a catastrophic pH of 3) and filled with sugars, the body, its immune system already battling a cumulative load of carcinogens like fluoride, sodium laurel sulfate, parabens, mercury, aspartame, etc. and perhaps tipped into insolvency by some unforseen crisis of stress, now becomes a cancer factory.

ph_scaleCaisse’s formula is still marketed in various forms, though she was unable to continue her highly popular practice in Bracebridge Ontario, carried out without personal gain, despite thousands of signatures on a petition (which included the Prime Minister’s) because of strong opposition by the Canadian Medical Association.  Their resistance followed their initial enthusiasm because of Caisse’s refusal to hand over the complex methodology established through years of practice unless they would be evaluated fairly and under her guidance, and if validated, administered at cost to cancer patients.

Budwig’s background was more scientific; she understood the mechanism of the pi electron clouds accompanying the fat molecules in flax seed oil:

“Naturally there is no miracle cure for cancer, however we will all recognise that people are involved. As long as a person lives, he must breathe, this you will agree with.  Warburg determined that all tissue in the living organism, wherever a tumour can be formed, is characterised by the fact that it can no longer absorb oxygen. 

I came to the awareness that the photo elements of life, the photons of the sun interacting with the electrons, built up in the essential vital seed oils are necessary for the absorption of oxygen.  This is irrefutable.”

She also understood how to get her point across, and had the patience to deal with the embedded class of intellects in Germany which forbade new ideas from blossoming too quickly:

Professor Heisenberg described how patricularly in Germany, the ossified rigid thought processes of the old school always refuse to fully embrace new things.  They always want to force the new into their old thought processes. That does not work!

He writes, “Even the suppression of new knowledge cannot prevent the breakthrough, because the people, the public, even if they are not experts in quantum physics or medicine, they have a feel for where truth rules.”

Cancer, the Problem and Solution, Dr Joanna Budwig – presentation in Frankfurt, 23 September 1998 (Nexus GmbH)

One day the public will become educated enough about their own brain and body to recognise what is good and bad for it; they will know the heroes and villains on the  supermarket shelves and their table.  Maybe we will look back on the 20th Century and the early 21st as an catastrophic age ignorance and misguided research, and realise once and for all that a human being must never delegate its health, or the recovery of it, to a corporation concerned only with preserving its own.  The UN released a 2013 report concluding small scale organic farming was the only practical way to feed the world, as large scale mechanised agriculture was not sustainable or healthy enough to provide any long term benefit to mankind.

While in California I met a wonderful fellow, a thoughtful, quietly spoken cancer patient who’d spent his life as a farmer.  He said when Monsanto moved in with their patented non-renewable crops, the seed cleaners who worked at the end of each season to prepare seeds for the next were driven out of business.  Farmers felt they had little choice but to sign up, and it was true that when things went well, the profits were large.  But the water this man drank every day was from a deep well on his farm, which he realised now must surely have been contaminated by the extreme pesticides Monsanto’s genetically tampered crops demanded. He admitted “Some farmers held out from Monsanto,” adding quietly, “I wish now that I had, too.” 

Mankind has paid a heavy price for the commercialisation of its food, but information is spreading so fast now and from so many different directions, that the writing is on the wall.  And for once, it looks like good news!

Ive been in this town so long
So long to the city
I’m fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough
And sunny down snuff I’m alright..

Rebuilding the Brain

A while back I wrote about stress and the brain and how it related to schoolchildren pressured to perform on exams, after I read Alzheimer’s and dementia were strongly linked to stress.

Teachers, generally academics, often say such pressure didn’t do them any harm – why should it harm anyone else?  But the academic personality enjoys the finely embroidered rules of a man-made system, and naturally turns this talent to their career advantage.  On the other hand the bulk of children reluctantly put up with the stress or do the least amount of work required for an acceptable grade.

If stress ceased on leaving school the damage could be repaired easily enough, as happens during holidays when the child gradually regains their enthusiasm and natural cheerfulness.  The bigger problem is when relatively limited educational stress takes on a tyrannical dimension as the student either loads themselves with £40,000 of debt for university (typically £9,000 a year in tuition, with £5,000 board) or begins work, knowing that loss of pay means loss of home and food.

Society and our economy are based on the idea that more material goods means success: he who dies with the most toys wins.  We buy a bigger house but spend less time in it as we take on more duties to pay for it.  How is this successful?  We’ve been in this dead-end materialst rut for so long we can’t imagine any other way to live.

wiring_1

Paradoxically, those somehow responsible for children’s welfare show a strange inability to learn.  UK education secretary Michael Gove wants to increase the school day to 6:00 pm, and take away the Summer holiday, making a 42 week school year.  Would 33% additional schooling (1890 hours against 1265) mean a 33% shorter school career? Of course not, since more is always better.

Under such circumstances the brain would have no chance even on a daily basis to recover its equilibrium, and we can safely predict a generation of damaged individuals staggering out the far end of this factory.  A child on a 20 minute commute with 90 minutes of homework would spend more time working than their own parents, who they would see perhaps 2 hours a day: the whole family would be strangers, run ragged until childhood was over, without even a summer holiday to renew the bond.

More research has been released this week by the Universty of California at Berkely showing why chronic stress predisposes the brain to mental illness.

In a series of experiments, Daniela Kaufer, UC Berkeley associate professor of integrative biology, and her colleagues, including graduate students Sundari Chetty and Aaron Freidman, discovered that chronic stress generates more myelin-producing cells and fewer neurons than normal. This results in an excess of myelin – and thus, white matter – in some areas of the brain, which disrupts the delicate balance and timing of communication within the brain.

“We studied only one part of the brain, the hippocampus, but our findings could provide insight into how white matter is changing in conditions such as schizophrenia, autism, depression, suicide, ADHD and PTSD,” she said.

“You can imagine that if your amygdala and hippocampus are better connected, that could mean that your fear responses are much quicker, which is something you see in stress survivors,” she said. “On the other hand, if your connections are not so good to the prefrontal cortex, your ability to shut down responses is impaired. So, when you are in a stressful situation, the inhibitory pathways from the prefrontal cortex telling you not to get stressed don’t work as well as the amygdala shouting to the hippocampus, ‘This is terrible!’ You have a much bigger response than you should.”

The work was supported by a BRAINS (Biobehavioral Research Awards for Innovative New Scientists) award from the National Institute of Mental Health of the National Institutes of Health (R01 MH087495), a Berkeley Stem Cell Center Seed Grant, the Hellman Family Foundation and the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression.

When an iPhone or PC overheats, we switch them off to save the cost of repairs, and in the case of an iPhone, the sealed unit actually does this for you.  It seems the brain has mechanisms designed to achieve the same thing – head injury survivors report an urgent need to sleep (and therefore heal) at random times. From Berkely’s evidence the brain even has a way to isolate damaged components from other ones, perhaps to lessen the impact of fault processing until they can be repaired.

But if the brain is dealing with a conscious personality willing to go to any lengths to meet deadlines, jacking up its performance on stimulants to continue difficult mental work long after the brain has cried “enough”, or trapped on a treadmill under threat of dismissal, is there any hope?

Fortunately, the brain is one superbly resilient machine.  Relying on intuition, the ancients built a seventh day of rest into the stucture of society itself, with some religions even forbidding that work of any kind be performed on it.  AJ Jacobs in The Year of Living Biblically finds he must constantly tapdance around the bad fit of Old Testament Judaism with modern life.  Is switching a light on considered work?  An orthodox scholar advises that it is.  Jacobs decides he can delegate this task to his wife – until he realises he might now be guilty of condemning her instead!

That staple of all spiritual schools, meditation, can help put the brain back into its natural state (even undoing chemical attacks from Donald Rumsfeld’s aspartame) which shows that of all mental exercises, meditation is closest to the brain’s natural inclination.  This, and not superstition, is the reason it features in all religions, and not at all in modern education.  Meditation has also been shown to combat the signal noise from modern life that gets in the way of creative performance. Meditation amplifies the power of the amygdala, thickens the cortex and increases telomerase, as pointed out elsewhere in this blog, and research shows that benevolent thoughts of others increases vagal tone. lennonquote

Recent research even reveals that the “flow” of the creative mind is achieved not by those who practice endlessly but by those who have strong emotional control.

Here, we focused on individual differences in a group of 76 piano performance students and assessed their flow experience in piano performance as well as their trait emotional intelligence.

Multiple regression analysis revealed that flow was predicted by the amount of daily practice and trait emotional intelligence. Other background variables (gender, age, duration of piano training and age of first piano training) were not predictive.

Like a Rolls Royce engine, the brain might be a sealed unit for its own protection but it responds wonderfully to our conscious direction.  If we have a choice, let’s treat it as we would any other damage-prone part of our body: soothe it – by immersing it in beauty – or at least give it a rest!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
