Eye Of Horus Training



The Seven Inexorable Powers By Ray Flowers www.sangraal.com

Neter

Ba and Ankh
The Wisdom of akh...ba...&...ka

At age twelve , the young initiate earned a place among his peers as a graduate of The Right Eye of Horus. His education presented The Language of Vibration which understands and communicates in left brain... logical memory and is taught in such a way as to lend Right brain (aesthetic) attention to detail . In Geometry for instance, the initiate learned there were two genders of lines: the curved feminine ... and the straight masculine. Geometry, Astronomy, Astrology, and Symbolism were taught through ideas of duality or the Dwat with two specific vantage points at every detail...male and female. Seeing inside was just as important as seeing outside. Thinkers expressed ideas of spirit cause or ‘fiat lux’(first light)...and spoke of Primordial Light energies which presented the instructions for this wave form universe.



akh...ba...ka

These three spiritual light principles make man. Just as three sides of a tri-angle are distinctly separable but definable as one.

akh is at the outset of all becoming. It is the light proceeding from the darkness presupposing darkness containing the light and the cause that held both in potential. akh is the spiritual birth of light in matter revealing itself and demonstrating three aspects.

Ø Metaphysically Being the Light contained in the darkness and receiving Wisdom and reciprocating with reflection.

Ø Naturally Being Light incorporate, regenerating from decomposing elements of seed in germination, and reawakening the fire in clay that makes what was sterile thrive.

Ø Humanly Being Spiritual Light triumphant over the human factors and integrating into Unity. The third component in an original Trinity is an abstract relation between two known factors. The phenomena is the third factor of the Trinity become visible and is the Superluminal, the first factor of a new Trinity....thus Trinities give rise to one another. The key to answering Light is reflection... it’s in the seed... and causes the Trinity.

ba



Ba is the “soul”....the soul which is birthed with the individual. It is the “astral body”, which is the animating breath of all that lives, constituting the world and its final perfection. ba is the natural soul in bodily form, subject to cyclic rebirth.

ka

represents the higher self and is one of the five subtle bodies. ka is the connection to the higher subtle bodies and with it's reflective essence in the khaibit causes initial connectivity to all the subtle bodies. The ka is the assemblage point in the physical body and mind. ka is the modem to access the intire universal memory and all of the principles or Neters.

The Seven Inexorable Powers

An entity...self contained chronicle for quickening.

The animation of life.



ik ki and mer

Within the milieu there is a balance which floats between polarities and is ever changing. Picture in your minds eye,...a total void containing no thing. You are timelessly there as light, shinning away. If you consider movement, another object is necessary for inertia, and there is no other object. How then, could there become movement? ....Reflection ...!

Consider an image of self, having the same Nature, but being a mirror image (reverse). The Ancient Egyptians called this reflection IK and KI. God ...and God's Reflection of Himself. Ik is the impulse that precipitates being into becoming through arousing in the "one" a wish to see himself in an "other" of which the principle is expressed by KI. This ever present polarity of the Universe presents as the duality or the Dwat.

All is contained and influenced by this balance of esoteric substance, which is in flux. Stabilization of this floating flux is approached by the esoteric understanding of Mer. Mer is The Light or vibration that is created by IK and KI, that occurs on all levels of physical and mental consciousness and suggests further examination of choices : One can compare IK and KI by viewing the differences between them...(subtract)......or combine them (unite). .The Initiate was skilled to combine IK and KI in order to achieve optimum Balance in Mer. It requires love and faith in one's self not to compare, but to combine.

The understanding of IK and KI is associated with Original Spirit, the unnamable, unknowable God Divine , fiat lux, and first chakra energy (or 8th chakra which is Genisis entry into the next dimension). Mer is associated with second chakra energy and indicates sexual balance . Mer is the essence of the regeneration of our Universe indicating, combining the Natural balancing powers within and without.. Mer also describes "going into" and is associated with "a counter rotating field of light"



Mer and The Eyes of Horus

Horus was the son of Isis and Osiris, and together were they the original Trinity in Ancient Egyptian Mythology. The Ancients established the Schools of the Right and Left Eyes of Horus where , Initiates learned that the right eye was controlled by the left , male oriented side of the brain which represents numbers, letters, reasoning, the creation of sentences and thoughts relative to concrete facts and processing language.

The left eye was controlled by the right, female oriented side of the brain and represented the subtle influences of intuition, aesthetic reasoning, art, nuance, metaphor, color , music appreciation and the instinct of the female. Horus was considered to be the supernatural element of the Trinity...the animator of prenatural Adamic man before his fall into dualization.

Mer is given as instruction to actualize the Ascension process, unveiling the path out of the duality. The idea is that by combining these polarities (plus a few more steps) one achieves a very special oneness, which is called the Center Eye of Horus, or The Child's Eye of Horus. Mer enjoins, and becomes in the mind's eye, which is 6th power.. The first step is the Wisdom of the 2ed power which is altering the consciousness of comparing and subtracting and learning how to combine the positive and negative into Oneness...... expressing Innocence...and, unleashing the Light which rises and begins the healing of the rest of the body, be it Person, Earth, or Universe. Mer [the second power] is the very first step in Becoming Self Aware.



Mer and Sexual Tantra

Regenerative Tantra describes an attitude with which the approach to Sexual Tantra must needs begin. . What if , like the Ancients, we learned to use sexual energy in a healthy spiritual way at a young age so that, when puberty was upon us, our sexual discipline was integrated and blossoming. Sexual Tantra is about being integrated and blossoming within a physically Spiritual Threshold.

Combining Sexual and Spiritual bio-feedback with a reciprocating partner animates Kundalini. It is the attitude of Mer which enables the individual to attain the balanced use of the left and right brain hemispheres at the same Time. It is also the attitude of Mer that enables the Energies of two people, simultaneously, into The Light of the same Portal..



Mer and Merkaba

Mer means:"a going into"...or "a counter rotating field of Light"....or "Light"...Ka... represents the Higher Spiritual Self and it's primary connection to The Archtypical or Neter.......known also as "the Spirit of the cosmos"....... Ba translates as "Soul"....or"astral body"..."Ba exists from beginning to end"

....Merkaba is perceived as going into a balanced male/female field of counter rotating Light which contains the Higher Spiritual Self and it's connection to the Archtypical or Neter, plus the soul or astral body .....and then, combining the energies into a transdimensional vehicle for Ascending the duality (3D).. Mer is the Light that is created in the primal cause and effect, and is used in the Merkaba, creating the Light of Genisis,....the beginning of new consciousness and movement through the Portal.



Merkaba Meditation information is available through...Drunvalo Melchizedek and friends at Flower of Life: http://www.floweroflife.org



Sekhem

"...and there , contained within the darkness is the Light , and the darkness knowith it not"....John 1/6.....John gives us a parable which is the key to understanding the Third Dimension. The second power, Mer has provided the Wisdom to unlock the Light contained within the darkness. The third power involves learning what to do with this Light. Third power energy concerns manipulation and control...

We must become conscious of the control and manipulation before proceeding, and then, registration can occur. We are deeply immersed in this energy, like being in the forests. Keeping Still , in the deep, we see the pinpoint of Light within the darkness, and it is us..... Focusing the Light into our inner self without fear, and listening to the messages which respond allows expansion of our selves and the Light.

It is the nature of this, 3D consciousness to wave 'the wand of control' around like the end of a loose water hose, or point it toward an object of desire to empower the self, defining unconsciousness. The interaction of IK/KI, and Mer flows inevitably and produces the fire Sekhem which destroys the nature of the former and at the same time produces new life. This shows the nature of transition to unconditional love. It is here that we learn that the first three powers are causal drives in becoming and the next four are agents in actualization.



Kepher

Kepher is the principle of becoming in this new life , and of the transformations corresponding to the phases of all Genisis....life in birthing. Kepher opens the world of actualization which begins to manifest the combined action of IK/KI, Mer, and Sekhem, working in harmony with the next four powers .

It is an inner passivity and disinterestedness that enables the flow of energy, and a state of detached discretion (out of your way) that offers an impulse of Wisdom, capturing a ray of light, and recognizing the true law or path. The result will be a "thing", considered either relative reality at a moment of Genisis , or a result produced by a Genisis. This "thing"....khet...is not a "power", but is a product of Kepher which required the fifth and sixth power for it's existence. [5th...AB-IB and 6th...Tekh.] Each power has entity, but functions in consonance and harmony.

Note: The number four is the first result of multiplication. Heart chakra energy has two distinct characteristics, ...that of the heart as we know it (lower heart), and that of the thymus (upper heart), which is the electromagnetic energy surrounding the heart and extending into the fifth power. The two are reciprocating as they function together.

Egyptian teaching is based in the principle that the functions of the powers are not static and separated, but work in harmony with each other and with acquired knowledge . They admired the individual's attainments without judgment, and did not assume discontinuity between various states of organism , from the most material to the most spiritual.



Ab Ib and Tekh

The fifth power is called Ab Ib. It represents the thymus area, or the higher heart. Ab means desire. Ib means thirst. The two together represent a whole thought of thirst/desire relative to the energy of Kepher and of Tekh, Kepher being the fourth and Tekh the sixth.

If we begin to understand that the higher powers work together to form and complement each other, the picture reveals itself here. It is here that the lesson from Mer comes into play. The way in which we combine thirst and desire directly effects the understanding of Tekh, the sixth power, which means absorption even up to the point of saturation.

So we have Ab which is the reverse or reflection of Ba which we know means the soul or astral body, and we have Ib which is the reverse or reflection of Bi’t which is the Honey Bee that sucks honey from the flowers and the whole idea is about the thymus. We are associating 5th Ab Ib (thirst/desire) with 6th Tekh {3rd eye and absorption}, relative to 4th Kepher (solar plexus).

What we do with this information has to do with Actualization and it is the combining of these three powers that cause Manifestation to exist along with the seventh, Seshat, the pineal, or The Intelligence of the Heart. This very strong metaphorical resolve is how the Ancients taught their initiates the Ascension Process. We are describing a process of moving Energy up^ with the idea of using it in our highest potential, intentionally expressing The Kundalini Experience as a way of life.



Seshat

Seshat represents the pineal gland and it’s association with the other powers. The pineal gland holds the Intelligence of the Heart and functions with the Wisdom of Love. Seshat is the female counterpart of Thoth who represents the Keeper of Wisdom and is the Neter of writing and record keeping. Seshat means seven and signature or the signing of the seventh.

This signature gives Actualization to the Potential and is key in Manifesting. At this Signing, the initiate must let it all go the Way of the Universe, resolve into One, and begin a new process. It is for this reason that, as the Ancients rebuilt their temples, Seshat from the older temple became the corner stone of the new temple. We see her older hieroglyph at the very bottom of some of the newer Egyptian temples.



Ankh

Ankh is traditionally known as the giver of life and is associated with the feminine. Similar to the Christian cross, it represents the idea of life and the wholeness that life offers. For the Ancients it represents a pathway to the higher self. In the Egyptian Tantra, The Ankh is the pathway at orgasm to the highest dimensions.

We, as a group of sexual people, seldom use this most powerful resource. Sex is arguably the most profound and powerful resource contained in the human and we use it primarily for joy. Our consciousness as a whole has not reached the point where we can even talk about the power of sex. The Ancients taught us more than we can absorb.

When one has an orgasm there are two pathways that the orgasm can take. One can orgasm up and out the top of the head or down into the Earth. Some of our ancient teachings tell us that we die just a little at every orgasm. The Egyptian Ancients had it figured somewhat differently. At orgasm, instead of orgasming up or down they would focus on bringing the energy to the Kepher or Solar Plexus and sending it out the back in a circular motion to the top of the head, 8th chakra, or higher self, and then back into the front of the Solar Plexus somewhat in the pattern of the Ankh.

This approach requires some reeducation for the westerner that primarily thinks in terms of the joy of sex (which is OK but there is more). And what of two people doing it together, at the same instant. It is very much like lightening and potentiates the Caduceus or Kundalini. The idea is to begin the healing of the DNA structure, which appears as the Caduceus, is Phi recursive, and describes implosion. It is somewhat like hot wiring the upper chakras and allowing their combined energy to function together as a Oneness.

This brings us back to the idea of Mer, or the combining of the male and female principles of the individual in order to unite two individuals into Oneness and approach the Portal. If we are functioning in the old paradigm of comparing and subtracting, we miss this opportunity for Ascension.

Superfoods

The top four superfood products for optimum health and disease prevention / reversal; recommended by Mike Adams

I get a lot of email asking the same question: "Mike, if you had to take just one nutritional supplement or vitamin product, what would it be?"
Here's the answer to that question.

If I were stranded on a desert island and had to choose just one nutritional supplement to have on hand, or if I were suffering from chronic disease (like cancer, heart disease, etc.) and had to choose just one product to consume in an effort to reverse that disease, I would choose the following:

A superfoods / green foods combination supplement

In other words, I'd choose a superfoods supplement containing a number of beneficial superfood ingredients like:

Chlorella (powerful blood cleanser, liver cleanser, anti-cancer agent and more)
Spirulina (complete plant-based protein, strong anti-cancer food, outstanding minerals and trace mineral content, great for stabilizing blood sugar, outstanding brain function support, etc.)
Quinoa (a complete protein in a "grain," good fiber, great source of complex carbs)
Wheat grass (loaded with phytonutrients, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals)
Flax seeds (health omega-3 oils, impressive prevention of heart disease and atherosclerosis)
Sprouts (broccoli sprouts, clover sprouts, alfalfa sprouts and barley sprouts are all powerful "foods as medicine" containing high-density nutrition and disease fighting phytochemicals)
… and I'd make sure to avoid unhealthful sweeteners like aspartame, fructose, sugar, sucralose or any sweetener other than stevia.

Which products meet these criteria?
I currently recommend two products that meet these criteria. (Note: as always, I have absolutely no financial involvement in any companies or products listed here. Nobody pays to be listed here. This is 100% based on merit.)
First, there's the Alive! Whole Food Energizer by Nature's Way, a pill form supplement that provides everything I've mentioned above, plus nutrients from fruits, berries and medicinal mushrooms. You can buy this at any health food store or even many grocery stores. I take Alive! on a daily basis and strongly recommend it to others. I think it's the best brand-name superfood pill on the market today. It fights disease, promotes healthy metabolism and contains a healthy dose of superfoods. Don't limit yourself to just one or two pills a day, by the way: I've taken as many as ten pills a day. These are foods, not drugs.
Related book:
Superfoods For Optimum Health: Chlorella and Spirulina
In this free online book, you'll get the astounding truth on how these two superfoods are far more than just "supplements" like vitamins and minerals: they are disease preventing foods from nature that can actually help conquer cancer, diabetes, heart disease, clinical depression, and much more.

Uncensored, natural solutions for reversing heart disease
Let the Weiss Method show you what conventional medicine won't: That heart disease is preventable, and even reversible.
Learn:


Why cholesterol-lowering medications may be useless
The best supplements and nutritional strategies for targeting your risk factors
Why prescription drugs, bypass surgery and angioplasty don't work
Non-invasive ways to reduce and eliminate coronary artery disease
Why eliminating toxins is imperative for heart health (and how to do it!)
Which cell salts will help you heal faster

There's also an outstanding supergreens formula now offered by Garden of Life called The Perfect Food. I've tried this myself and I think it's a good product, but it didn't offer quite as much "green density" as the other superfoods recommended above. Still, I strongly support the Garden of Life philosophy, its CEO (the author) and its product line. You can't go wrong with these products. Like all supergreens formulas, these Garden of Life products also prevent and even help reverse disease. They provide outstanding nutrition to any human being.

Where do you get this stuff?

Any health food store carries the brand-name supplements. You can find them at local health food stores or through online vitamin sources like Swanson Vitamins, Vitamin Shoppe, or Vitacost.
So there ya have it! If I were stranded on a desert island, and had to choose just one product to keep me alive and in good health, I'd choose one of the following:

Alive! from Nature's Way
The Perfect Food from Garden of Life
… and I'd be in outstanding physical health on that island, too! Yes, you can actually live on these superfoods.

Questions and Answers about these supplements

Can these superfood products cure disease?
They can absolutely help reverse chronic disease. Here's the truth about this: the FDA has outlawed nutritional supplement companies from telling the truth about their own products. If Nature's Way, for example, stated on the label, "this product prevents chronic disease," the FDA would consider that to be an unsubstantiated health claim (even though it's true!) and would ruthlessly attack the manufacturer, eventually putting them out of business. This is what happened to Lane Labs, which sold MGN-3, a product that actually worked to cure cancer by boosting patients' immune systems through the use of medicinal mushroom extracts widely known for their anti-cancer effects in Japan. Related book:
Grocery Warning
How to recognize and avoid the common foods (and food ingredients) that cause disease. Names all the exact ingredients that directly cause heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, depression, osteoporosis, arthritis, high blood pressure, ADHD, behavioral disorders, mood swings and many more.
But since I don't sell these products, nor do I financially benefit from their sale, I can tell you the truth about them. And the truth is this: these products both prevent and fight chronic disease through superior nutrition. I know I will never have cancer, diabetes, heart disease, mental depression, osteoporosis or any other popular chronic disease because I take these superfoods daily. It's simple cause and effect: my body will always prevent those diseases because I'm getting outstanding nutrition. Plus, I don't eat all the foods and food ingredients that cause disease (soft drinks, white flour, packaged meat, processed foods, fast foods, snack foods, etc.).
However, it is important to note that these superfoods cannot undo disease-promoting eating habits if you continue to pursue the Standard American Diet. In other words, if you're silly enough to keep eating pizza, drinking cow's milk, wolfing down brand-name breakfast cereals, eating fried foods, and so on, one pill a day of Alive Whole Food Energizer isn't going to keep you disease free. There's simply too much poison entering your system in the form of toxic food ingredients from all the processed foods you're eating. If you want to be disease free, you have to do two things together: 1) Get superior nutrition through superfoods, and 2) Avoid the foods and ingredients that cause chronic disease in the first place.

Remember: most Americans are over-fed and under-nourished. We suffer from obesity and malnutrition at the same time because our foods are nutritionally depleted!


Will these superfoods cause me to lose weight?

Same answer as above: yes, they will help you lose weight, but only if you avoid the foods and lifestyle habits that promote weight gain in the first place. One thing I've noticed is that consuming these superfoods stops food cravings because it gives your body the nutrition it's dying for (literally). And by stopping food cravings, you can then more easily control your food intake and, accordingly, lose weight.

Drug Free Approach To Unclog Arteries

From www.newstarget.com

A reader asks, "How can I unclog my arteries or clean my arteries without surgery?" And, "What are some good heart foods?"
First, stop doing the things that gave you atherosclerosis in the first place. In other words, your arteries didn't become clogged just by luck or chance, and hopefully you are already aware of this. They became clogged through a series of choices. These choices cover the foods you have chosen to eat over your lifetime and the level of exercise in which you have chosen to participate. So, before we get into the strategies and therapies that can reverse atherosclerosis and unclog arteries, let's talk about stopping the clogging process in the first place.

There is a huge myth out there about what causes clogged arteries and heart disease. And the myth is a carryover from the 1980s when the big dietary enemy was fat. The entire nation, it seemed, was fleeing from fat, and at the same time running toward foods made with ridiculously large amounts of sugar. Fat was a big disease causer, doctors told us, and everybody was told to go on an extremely low-fat diet. Even the American Heart Association recommended that people at risk of heart disease or those who had already suffered a heart attack avoid practically all fat in their diet. Some people were told to go on 10 grams of fat a day or even less.

And here's the big mistake of it: all fats were lumped into the same group. So whether it was fat from fish oils or fat from beef lard, it was all considered to be the same fat, and it was all considered to be the enemy of human health. Of course today we know that the hysteria surrounding fat was just that -- nothing but poorly justified fear resulting from major mistakes by medical researchers, combined with a huge marketing push on the part of food producers who discovered that selling people sugar was a lot easier, and a lot more profitable, than selling fat.

So what does all of this have to do with stopping the clogging of your arteries? It's simple, actually. There are healthy, good fats that you must get into your diet if you wish to unclog your arteries. And today it is well known that those fats include omega-3 fatty acids, fish oils, and monounsaturated fats. Basically, the kind of fats you find in oily fish, nuts, seeds, and fruits like avocados (which is, yes, technically a fruit, not a vegetable).

The first practical thing, then, that you can do is switch from all the unhealthy fats in your diet to healthy fats. That means giving up all fried foods, because all fried fats are unhealthy fats containing alarming quantities of trans fatty acids. So give up your fried foods and switch to raw foods or baked foods. You should also give up cheap fats such as the low-cost vegetable oils found in the grocery store, and move to the more expensive fats, such as cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. This is one of the cases where extra money goes a long way in protecting your health. Getting healthy fats from fish oils is also quite expensive.
But let's talk now about a strategy that’s absolutely free and that will protect you from plaque buildup in your arteries. And this is perhaps even more important than getting good fats into your diet. It is avoiding hydrogenated oils and any foods made with hydrogenated oils. That's because hydrogenated oils are the number one cause of heart disease and a major contributor to neurological disorders in the United States and around the world. Hydrogenated oils are, simply put, poison in the human body. They accelerate the buildup of plaque in the arteries. And as a result, they bring on heart disease far more quickly than would happen normally.

Hydrogenated oils are artificially processed oils that never appear in nature. They are created by food producers for the convenience of food producers – primarily to add shelf life and consistency to foods so that those foods not only taste great, but can sit on the shelf for months at a time without going bad.

A lot of people think they know that hydrogenated oils are bad for them and they think they avoid those oils by not eating fried foods or other more obvious items. But here is where most people go wrong on this: hydrogenated oils are found in virtually every baked or fried and sometimes even frozen food product in the grocery store. Consider this: in every grocery store there is one aisle that has all the snack crackers. You know, it has the vegetable crackers and the wheat crackers, it also has the cookies. This entire aisle is so contaminated with hydrogenated oils that it should really be called the hydrogenated oil aisle.

Grocery Warning
How to recognize and avoid the common foods (and food ingredients) that cause disease. Names all the exact ingredients that directly cause heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, depression, osteoporosis, arthritis, high blood pressure, ADHD, behavioral disorders, mood swings and many more.
There is virtually no food product in this entire aisle that does not contain hydrogenated oils. You have to go way down the aisle to the unpopular section -- often it's located near the kosher foods -- to find crackers such as Wasa Crackers, which are made without hydrogenated oils and are baked, not fried (at least in the U.S.). But practically everything else on that aisle contains hydrogenated oils. That means every snack chip, every cookie, every cracker, every pastry, and every baked good, whether it's sweet or not, is made with this dietary poison.
The thing is, then, most Americans are consuming massive quantities of hydrogenated oils without even really recognizing it because they're eating potato chips, nacho chips, and all sorts of other snack foods found in the hydrogenated oil aisle. As a result, they are getting atherosclerosis, or a built up of plaque in their arteries. And over time, of course, it leads to widespread cardiovascular disease. But more importantly, it can lead to strokes, heart attacks, and the need for heart bypass surgery, which will set you back at least six figures, if not more.

This is, then, perhaps the single most important thing you can do to prevent the buildup of plaque in your arteries. Avoid eating any food product made with hydrogenated oils.

Now how do you do that? It's simple. You start reading labels. It is impossible to be healthy in modern society if you don't make a habit of reading the food labels of every food you purchase and consume. Personally, I don't touch a food unless I've read the label and it meets my criteria of not containing a certain list of ingredients known as metabolic disruptors.

You must start reading ingredient labels, and what you're looking for here is either hydrogenated vegetable oil or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. It can also be called partially hydrogenated soybean oil or safflower oil. The name of the oil doesn't matter. What you're looking for is the word “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated.” If it has either one of those words, that food is poison. It will give you cardiovascular disease. It will harm your nervous system. It will shorten your lifespan, quite frankly. You need to put it back on the shelf, and in doing that, let these food manufacturers know that they can no longer sell you poison in a pretty box and call it food.

So those are the basic strategies of what you can do to avoid increasing the buildup of plaque in your arteries.

Amazing Sun Cures

The Amazing Truth About The Sun And Your Health

By David Eifrig Jr. MD

I have just returned from an island off the coast of Georgia. The island is the easternmost piece of land in the state of Georgia. Luckily, we stayed just down the street from a great breakfast dive called "The Breakfast Club." This is a famous place and unique in many ways including the hours. When the chef (can you really call a short order cook that?) decides to close he closes. Today he closed at 12:30. Yesterday, he stayed open until 2:00. If you've ever spent much time on an island in the semi-tropics you'll find nooks and crannies with people like this..."living on island time."

As this summer comes to an end and the sunsets arrive earlier and earlier, I am reminded about those living either on an island or near a beach, and I truly begin to wonder about the sun and whether it is good for us. While walking the beach this week, I contemplated the hype about sunburns and skin cancer. How much SPF was I supposed to put on? How often? Should I really stay completely out of the sun at noon? When I realize how little of it makes sense, I know its time do some more research and then share my thoughts with you.

If you think about it, the sun and sunlight HAS TO BE HEALTHY for us. As it turns out, our bodies actually use the sunlight to produce chemicals that are highly critical in our body's function and our mental well-being. The sun's ultraviolet radiation, UV for short, comes in several different wavelengths of light. UV-B rays, the ones thought to burn, are the ones that trigger the production of the major chemical so critical to our health. The chemical is Vitamin D and it is critical in our kidney function, bone formation, blood pressure, immune system function, etc...

In actuality, it is not truly a vitamin since it can be made by human skin and thus need not be added to our diet. In fact, almost every cell in our body has a receptor for Vitamin D. More importantly, this vitamin is chemically a steroid called cholecalciferol, (aka Vitamin D3). It is produced in the skin and then converted to a long-lived molecule in the liver, and then finally into a short-lived active molecule 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol. The chemical is fat-soluble and, as such, could be consumed and stored in the body in excessive amounts if too much is taken in supplement form. One of its critical roles is in controlling the balance between calcium, phosphorous, and bone "remodeling." Some people think the reason fractures are so common in the elderly is due to decreased sunlight inside nursing homes and the hospital. I actually agree with this idea.

But back to the issues surrounding the sun. The hype surrounding sun and skin cancer is remarkable. Several high profile websites propagate the hype with phrases such as:

"90% of skin cancers are preventable"
"skin cancer is at epidemic proportions in the U.S."
"well-known behaviors can reduce the risk"
Shamefully, they don't tell you how good the sun is for you or how harmful the chemicals are they recommend using to "prevent cancer." In fact, sunscreen does not even protect you from the form of skin cancer called melanoma -- the deadly skin cancer but also the least common. (Genetics play a huge role in this form of cancer and paradoxically the sun may help prevent it!)

Some of the chemicals in sunscreen include:

Titanium dioxide -- absorbed into the skin --"a potential occupational carcinogen."
Octyl methoxycinnamate -- kills mouse cells in much lower concentrations than those found in sunscreen.
Benzophenone -- used in industrial processes to initiate chemical reactions -- a prolific producer of free-radicals
4-methyl-benzylidene camphor (4-MBC) --causes estrogen-like effects and developmental effects in animals
Adimate-O -- is a nitrosamine, which are major players in stomach cancers
Homosalate -- may cause aspirin (salicylate) poisoning
Oxybenzone -- causes low sperm counts and liver toxicity in animals
What no one tells you is that most of the chemicals in sunscreens are as likely if not more so to do harm to your system than the sun itself. And the shocking news is that melanoma (the deadly skin cancer) is on the rise in the countries that have been increasing their use of sunscreens.

Even more proof that sun, skin cancer, and the hype about it is wrong can be found if you look at states that have the highest amount of sunlight and the highest incidence of melanoma (or vice versa) and guess what? The states' rankings don't correlate with each other. For example, Delaware, which is #3 on the highest incidence list, gets around 100 days of sunshine per year, whereas the #46 to #50 states (low incidence of cancer) receive around 100 days per year as well. Clearly the pathophysiology of skin cancer is poorly understood.

But more importantly I want to tout the fact that the SUN IS GOOD FOR YOU... there are many studies showing that exposure to the sun:

decreases the risk of melanoma (a paradox for many)
decreases the risk of colon cancer
decreases the risk of breast cancer
decreases the risk of ovarian cancer
decreases the risk of prostate cancer
decreases the risk of lymphoma
decreases the risk of multiple sclerosis
decreases depression in the winter
causes a regression of solar keratoses
Now having said all this... I can tell you that if you have more than 50 moles on your body OR the moles that you do have are unusual in shape, size or color then you are at much greater risk and getting sun on those moles can trigger their transformation to cancer. Similarly if you are lighter skinned, red, or blonde-haired... then you are at increased risk (albeit small and the risk decreased with regular exposure to the sun for short periods of time).

What do I do?

I try to get some sun on my body every day (my face is usually the most convenient during working hours).
I try to not use sunscreen unless I am going to be outside for a much longer time than normally, for example a 3-4 hour period. In those times, I will use an SPF4 or less to reduce my exposure to these toxic chemicals. (The number represents the amount of "supposed protection," the higher the number the more chemicals)
I also am very careful to NOT use sunscreen that has OMC (Octyl methoxycinnamate) -- I found a while ago that it causes a rash days after application and also seems to make me react to the sun with more redness than other sunscreens.
Prior to any winter trip to a sunnier climate, I will stimulate my melanin producing cells (the ones that darken to give us a tan) by getting sunlight on my body (see #7) several times before going on the trip -- even if this means a few tanning-booth sessions. (Tanning booths however don't have the full spectrum of the suns rays, which could be both good and bad.)
I am always careful to reduce the amount of sun I get during the peak burning times of 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., especially if I haven't been out much in the sun. I don't avoid this time but am just careful. For example, I usually put my convertible top up during this time.
I try and wear sunglasses and a cap to reduce the amount of direct light to my eyes (there is a link to cataracts and other eye diseases), although I do make sure my eyes get some of that healthy daytime light by occasionally not wearing glasses during daylight hours. The eyes are connected to a bunch of brain structures related to sleep, happiness, body rhythms, etc...
If it is the middle of winter and I'm feeling a little blue... in the middle of the day I try and find a nice warm brick wall, out of the wind, and just sit and get sunlight on my face and skin as much as possible...
It's such a simple thing that it doesn't seem very important. But... I look for simple, cheap, and safe things to improve the long-term quality of my life. Sunlight is one of those powerful healing sources. Don't feel guilty about the sun.

Here's to our health,

Dr. David Eifrig Jr.

Hey Llan,

I was wondering whether you could go over again with me the info. you were relating about skin cancer, sun-screen, etc. I was chatting with my friend Michelle from work, who is young (35) and last year underwent surgery for skin cancer on her forehead which resulted in losing one complete eyebrow. She'd be interested in any point of view about melanomas, etc.

Thanks, judit

Dear Judit,

Your inquiry about skin cancer and UV light propels me this morning to type in 6 pages of hand written stuff for adding to the book that I accumulated during my month on St John. So I don't have to repeat stuff from the book, taking your book to hand consider: Insert to middle of page 16:

We have been indoctorinated with an entire bogus construct concerning sunlight. Dr William Campbell Douglas says "Let's put it right up front so there's no confusion:

1) The sun does not cause melanoma or any other form of fatal cancer. Dermatologists warn that it does, but they have no scientific basis for the assertion. The real fact is, it is more likely that a lack of adequate sunlight is a strong factor to the development of melanoma. The sun is your friend, but like any good thing, using a little self-control makes it even better.

2) Sunscreen is detrimental to good health and should be avoided. There has been a dramatic rise in melanoma coupled with the use of sun blocking oils.

3) Sunglasses are also bad for your health unless you wear the full spectrum variety. The sun does not cause cataracts or other visual problems. The infra-red rays from incandescent light bulbs are probably the main cause of cataracts. Use full spectrum fluorescent lights in your home or office."

For a wavelength to 'burn' it means over-exposure to the tolerances of the body for that specific wave-length. Our body can stand great quantities of and variability of exposure to radiation in the ranges of the visible spectrum. At both edges of this visible wavelength band is where intolerances, particularly in the epidermal layer, reveal themselves. Wavelengths of ultraviolet not normally visible 'burn' the skin when it's too much, at the same time the invisible wavelengths of ultra-violet are an essential nutrient in the body's production of Vitamin D.

Melanomas tend to appear on parts of the body not especially exposed to sunlight. They tend to be thicker and more advanced when found on hidden areas of the body. They can be obscured by hair and by a lack of pigmentation. My mother's upper-thigh melanoma in her 70's she said was as large as half a grapefruit.

Almost all the contributory damage to the skin that might induce non-melanoma skin cancer from the sun occurs in childhood and early adulthood - my doctor said the many basal cell carcinoma skin cancers I burned off from the second epidermal layer of my face with something called Effudex after he had frozen off several over years take 26 years to develop. People over 70 do not need to have concern for anything other than getting enough UVB sun to achieve and maintain healthy Vitamin D levels, which is harder to do the older you get, and are much more likely to die from Vitamin D deficiency-related hip fracture due to osteoporosis than from skin cancer. It is almost impossible to get enough Vitamin D from diet.

Until the mid 1990's it was believed that the kidneys make the body's entire supply of activated Vitamin D from the 25-Vitamnin D created by the liver out of the Vitamin D made in the skin after sun exposure and, to a lesser extent, from foods that supply Vitamin D. The supply from the kidneys that was thought to contribute to bone health is actually small and doesn't change however much 25-Vitamin D there is in the bloodstream. It is now understood that a variety of cells have this ability to activate Vitamin D, including the breast, prostate, colon, brain, skin and probably most other tissues and cells, where it is converted and used on the spot without increasing the activated Vitamin D in the blood stream, making difficulties for scientists to detect the connections between sun exposure and Vitamin D.

We now know that sun exposure has a role in preventing auto-immune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes, osteoporosis and that it promotes bone health. Discovering that cells throughout the body can activate Vitamin D is a major breakthrough in Vitamin D research. Also discovered is that not only the brain makes 'feel good' endorphins, when exposed to ultraviolet radiation the skin also makes beta endorphins.

All of us over age one need to get at least 1000 IU of Vitamin D every day. Most of us need only a few minutes a day sun exposure during the summer months to maintain hea;lthy Vitamin D levels throughout the year! About half of the amount of UVB exposure it would take to begin to turn your particular skin pink equals approximately 1000 IU of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is stored in your body fat and released in winter when you need it. 1000 IU or 25,000 nanograms can also be found in a pound of cooked eel or 40 eggs, 10 cups of fortified milk (with the danger of too much calcium), 10 oz salmon or mackerel, 7 1/2 lbs of fortified dried cereal. How about anchovies?

Neither Vitamin D rich foods nor supplements will cause your body to produce the feel-good substances such as beta-endorphins and serotonin, which create the feeling of well being you feel after being in the sun (or using a proper UVB tanning facility). Unlike Vitamin D supplements, which can cause toxicity especially if overdone with children, sun exposure cannot cause toxicity.

Pg 16: Serotonin production is directly related to the duration of exposure to sunlight (Lancet 2002). The book continues with aspects of cytoluminescent therapy, to which is added mid pg 17:

Since first evolved to treat polio virus in the early 1930's, ultraviolet blood irradiation raises the resistance of the host and is therefore able to control many disease processes of apparently unrelated etiology. UBI has never caused any adverse side effects or complications. Researchers in Russia (current listings of world medical literature contain over 110 articles, all from soviet literature) have used this process to treat HIV with impressive results.

My good friend Michael, folklore collector and singer, spent much of his energy the last two years of anguished debilitation similar to chronic fatigue syndrome researching and seeking medical help for what was ultimately concluded to be lyme disease or tick fever. At end resort he sought a clinic established by his brother in the midwest for the specific purpose of reintroducing the Knott Technique of ultraviolet blood irradiation using machines developed by E K Knott and used with excellent results in the 1930s 40s and 50s for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. A half dozen treatments totally restored Michael to himself as he and we know him, after everything else proposed by doctors up and down the East Coast had failed to produce any change.

Fluoride Destroys Tooth Enamel

Fluoride is being added to drinking water in a number of locations around the world, and in recent months there have been efforts to extend fluoridation of our drinking water, notably in Ireland, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and California.

Although benefits from fluoridated water are certainly not a scientific certainty, there is quite some data on dental fluorosis, brittling of teeth by the action of fluoride, which is generally put down to being a mere "cosmetic problem". Fluoride has also been found by major epidemiological studies to cause skeletal fluorosis, causing an increase in the rate of hip fractures.

Dr. Gerard F. Judd, a retired chemistry professor from Purdue University has been warning against the use of fluoride, and he backs up his warning with research and data, as well as an understanding of chemical reactions. His proposals on how to take care of our teeth without the use of fluoride are listed in a comment that was posted on a previous post of mine titled: Fluoride - No Thank You!

Thanks to Patricia, who took the trouble of commenting on that article. I think her post is important enough to distribute further.

I would also like to ask you, the readers, to share your own experiences.

- - -

Dr. Judd's research is very impressive. I actually healed myself from harm caused by the dentists using his book. Please read some of the results of his research below, including the dangers of fluoride. The book offers more information on root canals, mercury, etc. Please consider the book for you store.
Thank you,
Patricia


Letter from Dr. Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Chemist, Researcher for 18 years, Professor of Chemistry for 33 yrs.

April 2002

Dear Government Executive and Employee:

We can all stop spending billions for American dental work and research. Let me tell you why: I have learned the real causes of dental cavities and gum infection. People, including you, will now be able to take care of their own dentistry with insignificant cost, and end with perfect teeth. Cavities and gum infections are ended!

A great amount of REPUTABLE DENTAL RESEARCH proves the following:

1. Tooth cavities will be ended simply by rinsing acids off the teeth. ACIDS ALONE EAT THE ENAMEL. THERE WOULD BE NO CAVITIES IN THE WORLD if all people rinsed acids from their teeth promptly. Just sip water, milk or other liquid while eating. Water reacts with acids.

2. Foods and drinks, other than those containing acids, have no action on tooth enamel. SUGARS HAVE NO ACTION ON THE ENAMEL.

3. Bacteria cannot damage the enamel (calcium hydroxy phosphate). There is no such thing as decay of the enamel since bacteria require carbon and hydrogen to live. Billions of human and animal remains show teeth and bones are resistant to earth-bound organisms.

4. Teeth reenamalize when clean. TO MAKE TEETH CLEAN ONE BRUSHES WITH ANY BAR SOAP. Soap washes off in just 2 rinses. What about toothpastes? Glycerine in all tooth pastes is so sticky that it takes 27 washes to get it off. Teeth brushed with any toothpaste are coated with a film and CANNOT PROPERLY REENAMELIZE.

5. Taking calcium and phosphate in the diet results in reenamelization of the teeth, but only when they are clean. Bar soap does a perfect job in cleaning the surface. The enamel thickens and becomes less sensitive. Adenosine diphosphatase furnishes phosphate to teeth.

6. Gums are disinfected by brushing with any bar soap. Not only bacteria and viruses are destroyed promptly by small amounts of soap in water, but also white flies and aphids. Gardeners: Spray 1 tsp of dishwashing soap in 1 gallon of water to kill white flies and aphids.

7. Plaque, a poorly formed crystal stuck to the bottom of the enamel, is prevented and eventually removed by brushing with bar soap. Dental procedures to get the badly formed crystals off dig holes through the enamel. These cavities catch food and cause gum infection.

8. Prevention of plaque retards gum pockets. GUM POCKETS are formed as the plaque pushes the gums away from the teeth. GUM POCKETS, from 1 to 8 mm deep, ARE ALSO FORMED BY FLUORIDE, WHICH SEVERS THE PROTEIN MOLECULES ADHERING THE GUMS TO THE TEETH. SOAP PREVENTS GINGIVITIS caused by bacteria which is lodged in the gum pockets.

9. VITAMIN C AND PHOSPHATE help knit the gums back to the teeth. Pressing against the gums with fingers forces adhesive materials from the gums onto the teeth, which helps the process. Abscesses can be offset by holding Cepacol (14% alcohol) in the mouth 5 minutes.

10. 'Receding gum' surgery will end when the GUM POCKETS cease. The very mention of the procedure, which involves transferring flesh from the roof of the mouth to the excised area of the gums, is a heinous and useless procedure which ought to pass into oblivion.

11. REMOVAL OF FLUORIDE FROM DRINKING WATER, PASTES OR GELS SAVES THE ENZYME ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATASE so it can deliver phosphate to calcium at the tooth surface, RESULTING IN A BEAUTIFUL, SEMI-FLEXIBLE ENAMEL.

12. As stated above, THE GUMS CAN BE RECONNECTED TO THE TEETH BY TAKING VITAMIN C (ASCORBIC ACID) (1 tsp) with Arm and Hammer baking soda (1/2 tsp) in 1 inch of water, letting it fizz and then diluting to 1/2 to 1 cup with water, then drinking. The resulting SODIUM ASCORBATE is non-acid, very pure and a thousand times more soluble than vitamin C. SODIUM ASCORBATE IS MORE REACTIVE THAN ASCORBIC ACID (C) in building connective tissue and antibody structures and more effective in killing some viruses and bacteria.

13. Receding gums and plaque are ended when soap is used for brushing and VITAMIN C IS TAKEN DAILY AS DESCRIBED IN #12.

14. 30% of American youths ages 8-10 have no cavities. 100% of Ugandan youths ages 6-10 have no cavities. What does this tell us?

15. THE REASON UGANDAN YOUTHS HAVE 3 TIMES BETTER TEETH THAN AMERICAN YOUTHS IS BECAUSE they do not consume as many acid foods, have no fluoride in their drinking water, have regular meals rather than sipping acid drinks all day, have more calcium and phosphate in their diet, and have fewer dentists to 'WORK ON' their teeth.

16. DENTAL LITERATURE says 42% OF AMERICANS OVER 65 HAVE NO NATURAL TEETH while 25% OF THOSE OVER 43 HAVE NONE.

17. Dental literature says AMERICANS AGE 43 AVERAGE 32 CAVITIES, those AGE 17 HAVE 13 CAVITIES, blacks and poverty stricken (without calcium and phosphate) have twice this and the native Americans have four times this amount. The NATIVE AMERICAN PLIGHT CAN BE BLAMED ON THEIR POOR NUTRITION, EXCESSIVE FLUORIDATION AND FREE BUT IMPROPER DENTAL CARE.

18. IF FLUORIDATION WERE EFFECTIVE IN PREVENTING CAVITIES, NATIVE AMERICANS WOULD HAVE THE LEAST CAVITIES OF ANY GROUP. THEY HAVE HAD FORCED FLUORIDATION FOR APPROXIMATELY 62 YEARS.

19. Spokesmen for national groups are beginning to notice AN ALARMING RISE IN CAVITIES AMONG CHILDREN AND TEENS. Some dentists recommend DENTAL SEALANTS, especially for older teens not previously considered candidates for the treatment. But if sealants are now ordered, AREN'T DENTISTS ADMITTING NO CONFIDENCE IN THE ABILITY OF FLUORIDE TO PREVENT CAVITIES?

20. FLUORIDE in water at I part per million INCREASED TOOTH CAVITIES in four large reliable studies 7.22.45 and 10% (average 21 %). The reason far these increases has to do with the fact that adenosine diphosphatase is destroyed by fluoride and CALCIUM FLUORIDE which slips into the enamel, IS ALIEN TO THE TOOTH COMPOSITE AND MAKES THE ENAMEL WEAK, BRITTLE AND DISCOLORED.

21. THE HEALTH OF AMERICAN TEETH WILL INCREASE TO BE VERY NEARLY PERFECT if the regimen of WATER RINSING, SOAP BRUSHING AND TAKING CALCIUM, PHOSPHATE AND VITAMIN C IN THE DIET is implemented.

22. Fortunately, we now know the current 'teeth perfecting protocol' of dentistry with fluoridation is flawed. IF THE EARLY ESTIMATES OF 80% TOOTH IMPROVEMENT IN CHILDRENS' TEETH BY AGE 13 WERE TRUE, EACH AMERICAN WOULD NOW HAVE LESS THAN ONE CAVITY. That is far from true. The teeth in America are in a sorry state, AND AT THE PRESENT TIME ARE GETTING WORSE.

23. Numerous top scientists over the past 60 years have discarded the theory that fluoride helps teeth, or is a nutrient helpful to man.

24. TO AVOID FLUORIDE IS TO PREVENT MORE THAN 114 AILMENTS listed with references in a book Good Teeth Birth to Death by Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D.. These 114 MEDICAL SIDE EFFECTS extend all the way from cancer down to headaches CAUSED BY 1 PPM FLUORIDE IN THE WATER. Thirteen of these side effects are proved by a double blind study on 60 patients by 12 physicians, 1 pharmacist and 1 attorney.

25. The mechanism for destruction of enzymes by fluoride has been proven by x-ray studies. Hydrogen bonds are broken by fluoride.

26. Fluoride is the smallest negative particle on the face of the earth. Since the FLUORIDE PARTICLES ARE SO SMALL and so intensely negative, THEY CONNECT WITH THE HYDROGEN BONDS HOLDING THE ENZYME COILS IN PLACE and ruin every enzyme molecule at very low concentration, around 1-3 ppm. These enzymes are often 3,000 or more times the small size of the fluoride. The effect is ruinous.

27. To avoid fluoride is to prevent the destruction of 83 enzymes listed with references in Good Teeth, Birth to Death, by Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D.. FLUORIDE IS A SEVERE BIOLOGICAL POISON. Being intensely negative, it unlatches positive hydrogen bonds in enzymes AND proteins.

28. It is fortunate we have learned fluoride is a nerve poison. FLUORIDE CAUSES CAVITIES. There is not the slightest doubt.

29. Methylmercury formed from amalgams in the body is deadly. It causes brain disease. Fillings made of quartzite and epoxy are a safe substitute.

30. Fluoride harms the economy by MAKING PEOPLE PURCHASE OTHER THAN CITY WATER to avoid it. It also harms the economy by making people dependent on undependable professions that know nothing about it. Ignorance about fluoride and what it does is worldwide.

31. Keep the teeth moist. Teeth that are dry 'craze' (crack). If you chew ice, teeth may crumble. Teeth do have a breaking strength.

32. LOOK IN YOUR MOUTH. Tell the dentist(s) what you want done and get several bids for examination and work. Save your fortunes.

We now know we can cancel the green light given by Harry Truman with the help of Congress TO SUBSIDIZE DENTISTRY. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS BEING WASTED in this regard (Public Law 755, June 24,1948) CAN NOW BE RETURNED TO THE TAXPAYERS.

I hope you will put this information in the hands of your Congress persons so they and we may alert the newspapers, radio and TV stations, magazines, and all other news media as well as their friends, families, and associates about this giant leap in dental technology.

I ask for your feedback on this letter and I would also like you to ask for feedback from the ones you contact. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

Respectfully yours,
Gerard F. Judd, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Chemistry

His comment:
"See the attached picture of Angelique's tooth - we used fluoride when she was 6 months old to brush the teeth in her mouth.. They have been pulled out when she was 4 years old. This is how 'good' fluoride is to teeth. If people need any information, you may want to put my website address to it." http://www.hhff.info

From a recent "Doctor Yourself" newsletter (doctoryourself.com):

FLUORIDE IS NOT PREVENTING TOOTH DECAY

Fluoride is not stopping cavities and is causing discolored teeth. For example:

Researchers following children from birth in the Iowa Fluoride Study found almost double the dental fluorosis in early erupting permanent teeth of 9 year-olds drinking optimally fluoridated water compared to children drinking sub-optimally fluoridated water (41% vs. 21%); but no less tooth decay. (1)

Researchers found no significant relationship between fluoride exposure and cavities in permanent teeth of 6 to 9-year-olds in Campeche, Mexico (2). Previously, it was reported that 56% of this group has dental fluorosis. (3)

A U.S. national study reports cavity prevalence increased by 15% in 2 to 5-year-olds, in surveys taken between 1988-1994 and 1999-2002, (4) despite 60 years of water fluoridation reaching 2/3 of Americans on public water supplies and virtually 100% via the food supply. However, the Centers for Disease Control report that 1/3 to 1/2 of U.S. schoolchildren display dental fluorosis. (4a)

Another U.S. study shows that breastfed children have less cavities than non-breastfed. (5) even though breast milk has 100 times less fluoride than dentists claim is optimal to reduce cavities. Breastfeeding is also protective against fluorosis. (5a)

Although New York City fluoridated in 1965, NYC children of Chinese descent suffer a much higher prevalence and severity of tooth decay than the national average (63% vs 38%). (6)

About half of 7 to14-year-old children from fluoridated Rochester, NY, have cavities. Latino children had significantly higher caries experience than African-American and Caucasian children, thus indicating that disparities exist among different ethnic groups even when the water is fluoridated. (7)

In fluoridated Detroit, 91% of African American low-income children, 5 years and younger, have tooth decay. (8)

"Today, fluoridation puts American children at risk of dental fluorosis without any benefit of less tooth decay," says Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President and General Counsel. "And growing evidence links fluoride to hypersensitivities, bone damage, thyroid problems and more." (Contact Paul Beeber at nyscof@aol.com )

These studies add to a growing body of evidence pointing to fluoride's ineffectiveness and lack of safety. www.fluoridealert.org

Big Pharma 'Inventing' Diseases

Big Pharma is developing drugs for the most distressing disease of all: Life
by Mike Adams

Let's get to the raw truth about the pharmaceutical industry. Drug companies want to turn every normal human experience into a diagnosable disease that's treatable with their high-priced, patent-protected, brand-name drugs. It used to be that drugs were intended just to treat bonafide diseases -- things like malaria or infections -- but now the drug companies have realized that it's a much more profitable venture to invent diseases, and then sell drugs to treat them.

So today, we have drugs to help you do everything a normal, healthy human being can manage on their own in the first place. We have drugs to make you sleep and other drugs to make you wake up. We have drugs to calm you down if you're hyperactive and drugs to make you feel peppy if you're depressed. We have drugs to make you pee, drugs to force a bowel movement and yet more drugs to "enhance sexual performance." Just in case you're feeling a little bit nervous about some of this language, don't worry, there's a drug for that, too. It makes you feel calm when you might normally feel uncomfortable. In fact, no human experience is safe from being targeted and exploited by the pharmaceutical industry.

What's the ultimate aim of drug companies? It's quite simple. Just as Morpheus described in the movie "The Matrix," the purpose of the machines is to turn the human body into a battery. In modern medicine, the aim of drug companies is to turn the human body into a profit-generating machine. It's designed to exploit your body for financial gain. It's pure greed. There is no normal human condition that is safe from disease designation.

Since drugs are now widely used to treat mental states or emotions, it's not too far off that we'll have drugs to treat so-called diseases like "lack of patriotism." If you don't support the war efforts of the United States empire, then obviously you're not a patriot. You must be a traitor, and therefore there must be something mentally wrong with you. You need to be put on prescription drugs to treat that lack of patriotism. Call it the patriot drug.

Or maybe you have a problem with authority. Maybe you don't trust the media. Maybe you don't trust doctors or elected officials. Maybe you don't trust the FDA. Well, obviously there's something wrong with you. You have a problem with authority. Maybe it's obsessive disobedience disorder -- ODD. I'm sure they can come up with a drug for that, too, and they can probably find some psychiatric doctors who will tell a judge that, yes, you are diseased, and you need to be forcibly medicated for your own good.

Being human is now a disease, too
The real lie from the drug industry is that it's not okay to be human anymore. It's wrong to feel sad. Humans shouldn't ever cry, be depressed or feel down. If you have a sleepless night, there's something wrong with you. It's now a disease, not just a sleepless night.

Consumers buy into this, too. They think that every waking moment should feel wonderful. They think that they have to feel happy, uplifted and energetic at every moment, with no pain whatsoever, all with no effort on their part. God forbid they actually have to get off a couch, break a sweat or move their body to experience some health benefits. They are now convinced that that's the job of drug companies -- that if there's anything that doesn't feel completely comfortable, it's because they don't have the right chemicals in their bloodstream. This view is supported by the psychiatric community and the traditional medical community -- what I call organized medicine -- which continues to search for yet more synthetic chemicals to put into your bloodstream to treat or "manage" every disease, malady, disorder or discomfort that can be dreamed or imagined.

Consumers have been taught to think their foods should be a carnival ride, and that bland food equals bad food
From the point of view of consumers, much of the same beliefs are carried into the foods they consume. Consumers have been taught to think that every meal has to be a feast; that everything they put into their mouth has to be amusing, delightful or absolutely delicious. They won't even eat things that are good for them if they taste too bland.

Everything has to be like a carnival ride when it comes to food, and thus every single meal they eat is basically just dessert. The pizza sauce in pizza is loaded with sugar. Cornbread at a restaurant, which 20 years ago used to be cornbread, is now cake. Bagels are cake, and breads are sweetened up to taste like cake as well. Foods are enhanced with excitotoxins and chemical taste enhancers like monosodium glutamate so that nothing tastes like it really should.

Everything has been exaggerated to create this sensory explosion in the mouth of consumers, so consumers live a life in which they can't taste anything unless it's been chemically altered. And they can't function from one day to the next unless they've been chemically doped up with psychotropic drugs and blood-chemistry-altering chemicals sold to them at prices so high that our entire national economy is now headed toward bankruptcy due to healthcare costs.

I have news for these consumers, and I have news for everyone out there considering taking drugs to treat some symptom, disorder or discomfort. The news is that even healthy people have bad days sometimes. Life is not a giant party. Sometimes you don't feel like waking up. Sometimes your muscles ache because you've overworked them or you've eaten some bad food. Sometimes you get sick, but your immune system eventually overcomes it. Sometimes you feel a little down. This is normal.

Sometimes you're afraid to speak in front of crowds or you feel anxiety in social situations. This is normal human behavior, folks. Sometimes you feel like you have 12 projects going and you can't concentrate on any one of them. That's not attention deficit disorder; that's normal human behavior. In fact, it's how children learn. They don't focus on one thing; they do multiple things at once.

My message to those of you out who might be taking prescription drugs in the desperate effort to create this perfect, comfortable daily existence is this: Your expectations are way off base. There is no perfect human experience, not even in those who you might think are in perfect health.

The difference between people who are healthy and those who are not is not that we don't feel pain or don't feel inconvenienced in doing the things we do to stay healthy. The difference is that we are willing to do them anyway. In other words, we will feel the pain and still exercise. We feel tired but still get out of bed. We might not like the taste of some supplement, fiber shake or bland-tasting food, but we'll eat it anyway because we're willing to do what it takes to get the results. The results are lifelong health without prescription drugs, with zero medical bills, free of pain and free of chronic disease.

But that's not what Big Pharma wants you to believe.

Big Pharma's big lie: If you pump enough chemicals into your body, your life will be perfect
The whole promise of the drug industry is fraudulent. The promise is that if you take all these chemicals, you'll have healthy cholesterol, normal blood pressure levels, you'll never be nervous in social situations, you won't be depressed, you'll be happy all the time, you'll be able to have a bowel movement when you need one, you'll be able to pee when you have to and you'll be able to get an erection when you want one. You'll be able to be this superhuman being just by taking all these chemicals -- that's the promise of the drug industry.

These are empty promises, because any person who is on such drugs is a health wreck. They are very likely numb to the world because their senses have been shut down by these drugs. They probably have hundreds of different side effects metabolizing in their bodies as a result of these drugs. They don't have good energy, and they don't have good, healthy blood chemistry. They are basically just patching one symptom after another with these synthetic chemicals. That is not the pathway to health, and yet that's the empty promise of the pharmaceutical industry.

Disease mongering for business success!
Do you realize the pharmaceutical industry can only continue to grow by inventing new diseases and by redefining existing ones so that more and more people are now labeled diseased? That's the only way the industry can get bigger: By selling more drugs to the same population. The population is not getting any larger around here, so how does the pharmaceutical company make more money? It's easy -- it just invents more conditions.

It tries to get you on more and more pills. Drug marketing executives would like every person in this country, from the moment they're born to the moment they die, to be on at least 15 to 20 different daily pharmaceuticals. I have a question for you about this: If our bodies actually needed such chemicals to be alive and healthy and to live from the moment we're born to the day we die, don't you think that God or nature would have put those chemicals in our bodies in the first place? Don't you think our ancestors would have had some mechanism by which these chemicals could have been created in their own bodies?

There's no fundamental need for pharmaceuticals. The human body has no innate need for these chemicals. There is no normal, healthy human being who needs any pharmaceuticals whatsoever. Drug marketing is nothing but an effort to turn your body into a profit machine; to exploit your health, your pain, your suffering and your checkbook for companies who are paying their CEOs $134 million a year plus $120 million in stock option bonuses. They claim they're putting their money into research to help find tomorrow's cures, but that's hogwash. What they're trying to find is tomorrow's new diseases, which they can invent and then treat with more prescription drugs.

Can you name one disease that any pharmaceutical company has ever cured? Just one? There are none. There are no diseases that have been cured by pharmaceutical companies. Yet people continue to be gullible and buy into this fraudulent industry that claims if it just had a few more billion dollars and a few more years, it could cure all diseases.

So what might their cure be? Do you think it is going to be free? If drug companies do find the cure, will they distribute it for free, just to help free people from disease? Of course not. If they find a cure, they're going to charge you for it. Their research into finding a cure is their financial overhead. That's their investment in finding some drug, and it's not your responsibility to pay for their research.

The fact is you're paying for their research anyway. Most people don't know this, but the vast majority of new drugs approved by the FDA are based on research that's been funded by taxpayers, not by drug companies. So you're paying for the research anyway, and you're paying for it again when you buy prescription drugs, and you're paying for it yet again when you have to pay for the side effects caused by these prescription drugs. You're actually paying for these drugs three times, yet they do nothing to improve your health for the long term. Yes, they may mask one symptom for as long as you keep taking the pill. They can effectively lower one measurable chemical milestone such as LDL cholesterol or blood pressure, or they can mask the symptoms of arthritis pain temporarily. But none of them actually reverses any disease; they never address the underlying cause. They never help patients heal. In fact, they do patients a disservice by denying them the opportunity to heal themselves.

Drug companies invent diseases and expand on pre-existing ones to turn people into profit machines
Remember, the purpose of the drug industry today is actually to turn the human body into a profit machine. The way to do that is to expand the number of diseases that exist by attaching a pathological definition to every normal human behavior imaginable. Someday, daydreaming will probably be called a disease. Every undesirable moment of daily life will be called a disease. Have a fear of heights? Well, that could be a disease. Have trouble swimming? They could call that a disease, too. Does your skin attract mosquitoes? Well, certainly you should be taking a pharmaceutical that distributes a poison throughout your entire body and wards off mosquitoes. That's what they do for dogs with pills that prevent ticks and fleas. You feed your dog poison, and the poison circulates throughout that dog's entire body and ends up in the skin where it poisons parasites.

You see, they can come up with drugs for practically anything, but the truth is that these are not diseases. You don't need these drugs, and day-to-day life, even for healthy people, is not a 100 percent perfect experience. It's life, folks. Things happen. Get used to it, and get healthy anyway. There are speed bumps, there are potholes, but so what? No one ever got healthy by sitting around on the couch, waiting for drug companies to cure all their ailments. It won't happen, not in our lifetime, or anyone else's.

If you want to be healthy, take responsibility for your health today. Just say no to pharmaceuticals, and say yes to a healthy diet, healthy lifestyle and nutrition, while avoiding the foods and products that actually promote chronic disease. Say yes to your naturopath and say no to your MD. Fire your doctor, and hire a true healer instead. Above all, don't let any drug company, doctor or government regulatory body tell you that you are diseased because you happen to have a human emotion or a human thought or an off day that isn't 100 percent comfortable. That's not a disease -- that's life. Don't let drug companies convince you that life is a disease.

Beck Protocols For Health

The Robert C. Beck Protocols

Dr. Bob Beck developed a procedure for obtaining good health that involved four distinct treatments. These are widely referred to as the Beck Protocols. These are the four steps that he put together that allow anyone to follow the path to a healthy life. Good health is possible and a great place to start is with these four protocols. There are other treatments, other devices, and other people with good ideas that have also proven to be effective. Use your own judgment as to what is beneficial for you. You have the right to choose your own medical treatment. Use that right to choose for yourself.

1. Blood Electrification/Purification: Electrical micro-currents are known to eliminate all viruses, parasites, fungi, bacteria and pathogens in blood. The concept has been revealed in many revolutionary patents and research papers over the past 100 years (going back to 1890), but these breakthroughs were typically lost, suppressed, ridiculed by mainstream medicine, etc. The method was rediscovered by Kaali (click here for info) at the Einstein College of Medicine as an AIDS cure in 1990, but, as usual, it was promptly buried and all but forgotten until Bob Beck read about it and decided to research it. Blood electrification takes 2 hours daily for about four weeks to get significant results. The Silver Pulser and the RSG-2 are our versions of Beck's blood electrification unit.

2. Colloidal Sliver: Home-made, pennies-per-gallon colloidal silver acts as a "second immune system" according to Bob Beck. It has been shown in numerous studies to be the only substance known to eliminate hundreds of viruses, bacteria, fungus, etc., more than any modern antibiotic or "miracle drug" yet developed by the pharmaceutical companies. It greatly assists in eliminating pathogens and guards against opportunistic infections. It can be used anywhere in or on the body. You can buy just a colloidal silver maker, the Silver Maker, or get blood electrification and a colloidal silver maker in one unit with the Silver Pulser or RSG-2.

3. High-intensity Pulsed Magnetic Fields: Externally applied magnetic pulses to the lymphatic system, the spleen, kidney & liver, help neutralize germinating, latent and incubating parasites of all types, helping to block re-infection. This speeds up the elimination of disease, restores the immune system, and supports detoxification. Permanent magnets, no matter how strong they are, will not produce the same results as the pulsed fields of Bob Beck's device, which produces induced back-emf currents. You must have a high-intensity, time-varying, magnetic impulse, not just a magnetic field. Magnets have their uses, but they work in different ways with different results. Our Magnetic Pulse Generator produces the correct high-intensity field as specified by Dr. Beck.

4. Ozonated Water: Water that has been properly ozonated offers rapid, safe, and totally natural cell oxygenation without free radical damage. Universal detoxification is accomplished by oxidation of dead and neutralized pathogens, without the need for colonics, heat, hot tubs, exercise, liver and kidney flushing, herbs or other modalities. While these treatments have their uses, Bob Beck feels they are not necessary if ozonated water is used daily with the other three protocols he recommends. Our Nature-Kleen Ozonator is a high quality unit that can fully ozonate an 8 ounce (250ml) glass of water in just a few minutes.
