Addressing the Obstacles to Cure

Posted to Subscribers on 22 July 2019


Dear Subscribers,

Mercury is still retrograde and some additional review is warranted. Many, many people have written. I would like to make three requests: (1) please use the contact form; (2) please be sure that your e-mail address is complete and accurate since many of my replies bounce because of mistakes in the sender's mail; and (3) please consider using a discrete e-mail service as suggested. Otherwise, your questions belong to the Internet moguls forever. Unless you want sensitive data in their possession, this recommendation should be explored.

Many of you absolutely love it when I mention my kahuna mentor, Mornnah Simeona. I have distilled her primary health advice into two sentences that are so simple that it is easy to jump right over them because it seems so obvious that it is tempting to conclude that contemplation is not required. The first axiom is that before a condition can be resolved, the obstacle to cure must be removed. Today, I want to elaborate on this hugely important matter. I want to break it into pieces. There are physical issues that are external to ourselves but require a response or reaction from us. In my vocabulary, these are usually conditions of a rajasic nature, meaning that there is energy in motion so there will be an equal and opposite reaction. Nature longs for balance so call this what you may: karma, the law of action and reaction, the interaction between forces that are in motion, the battleground of imbalances that need addressing.

I am going to take some very simple examples so as to avoid personalization of action and reaction. There are many people today who are suffering because of drought. This leads to thirst, hunger, fear, and oftentimes action such as walking much further just to quench one's thirst or migrating to a place where conditions might be better. In the course of adapting to the challenge, hygiene and nutrition may deteriorate, and genes can even be passed to generations yet to be born. This has been suggested by genetic studies that pinpoint lack of nourishment several generations back, often in a relatively small time period, such as two years when there was a blight or crop failure. As we know, this prompted a lot of migration but the migrants brought with them the scars of their ordeals, apparently for seven generations. To make this very clear, think of the Irish potato failure and how this impacted migration to the United States.

My point is that we adapt. We make changes to overcome the risks, and sometimes this means loosening ties to the home country and its customs. It can also involve anger and resentment, especially if the droughts are blamed on human interventions such as weather warfare or manipulation, building of dams or highways that affect water flow, or reckless agricultural practices such as leaving land fallow and exposed instead of using cover crops. Urban dwellers might blame farmers for their ignorance, and farmers may blame engineers for overlooking the consequences of their projects. We tend to have feelings and opinions about causes and these issues are as important as physical symptoms requiring attention.

On a more personal level, the obstacles to cure can involve exposures we have not addressed. Over the last few months, I have mentioned vaccine adjuvants, dental amalgams, mold, undiagnosed parasitic infections and/or Lyme disease, Wi-Fi and other EMF intrusions, hot wiring in homes or office places, fluoride and chlorine in water, GMO foods, and so on and so forth. I have not mentioned counterproductive challenges such as addictions, but these obviously do affect health as well as relationships with others.

I have tried to prioritize and suggested that fungal infections, especially mold (as contrasted to yeast) are the most dangerous because they constitute a condition with the potential for worsening. To make this crystal clear, if we are exposed to a chemical toxin, the burden of that particular toxin is not really increasing unless we stretch the argument to include whatever free radicals or other effects there might be. The level of toxicity can be quantified. Yes, repeated exposure can result in elevated risk, but the toxin itself is not viable. With fungi, the threats are viable so whether exposure is increased or not, the condition may worsen. There are several risks. The first is an allergic reaction but only 25% of people have allergic reactions. This does not mean that there are no risks, merely that the alarms were not detected. The fungi are vegetative, meaning they eat and they eat all sorts of things, mostly erythrocytes and tissues, often leaving big holes in vital organs. In addition, many fungi produce mycotoxins of varying degrees of danger that can affect body chemistry, liver and kidney function, and mental clarity. Ultimately, the toxins may increase the risk of serious diseases such as cancer. They can also increase the risk of internal bleeding and organ failure.

So, one obstacle to cure is the mold infection itself, and it is seldom separate from the source of exposure. One can, of course, have been exposed randomly. For instance, when I was still recovering from serious mold exposure, I had two unpleasant encounters. In one case, I gave a lecture in a library and the lectern was directly under a filthy screen over the return for the HVAC system. The other was similar. I was seated directly under such a vent at a concert and the amount of gray, hairy stuff clinging to the dust in the vents was nasty looking and vile smelling. In short, even though my house had been remediated, there were still random exposures, including staying in a hotel that had had hurricane damage. At the airport when leaving, I was stuck in the departure lounge for three hours and realized that almost everyone was coughing and talking about their bad hotel experiences.

Without becoming paranoid, we need to study the risks where we live and where we work and resolve the problems. Usually, this means making repairs or moving. One can take herbs, but if re-exposed, it would not be reasonable to expect huge progress with health.

Next, we need to keep in mind that if we go for a routine medical exam, it is possible that the doctor will make a diagnosis of a seemingly unrelated problem, list the recommendations, but fail to ask questions about what might have contributed to the diagnosed condition. I am not saying that a history of malnutrition or mold exposure explains why treatments seem to work for some people and not for all, but I am suggesting that without addressing the obstacles to cure, the outcome may not be what is desired.

In terms of the severity of risks, some risks have to do with exposure. The example I have sometimes used is the study done decades ago that showed that the incidence of childhood leukemia was ten times higher on the side the street with utility poles: electrical and telephone. Today, we have to add to these issues the proximity to cell towers, exposure to smart meters, types of mobile devices used and level of use, such as occasional or heavy, how the devices are used and where they are placed when not in use, whether connectivity is wireless and, if so, where the router is placed, and sometimes what the neighbors are doing since their routers may affect our safety. Electromagnetic exposures as well as exposure to radioactive emissions from nuclear power plants are only partially within our control. Moreover, they, too can become so hazardous that we seek protection off the grid or through lobbying and legislation. Creating safe places within the home and work place is sometimes quite expensive, but it is certainly worth investigating how to sleep safely and perhaps also how to make rooms that are used heavily safer. One often needs a chunk of cash to achieve this level of protection.

Going down the list, amalgam dental restorations are a problem but do not pose the same level of danger for everyone. I have discussed good excreters and poor excreters, but there are also restorations that are funky and people who have lots of fillings as well as people who have few. Amalgams are toxic and they interfere with the immune system, but they are particularly egregious for those with neurological issues so resolving the risks is way to eliminate one more obstacle to cure.

Fluoride is nasty but can be filtered out of the water. This is a little expensive but not as steep as some of the other solutions needed.

As you see, the list goes on and on and while we have discretion over certain matters, we cannot influence all without major effort.

I had an unusually quiet weekend and let my mind wander all over the place. I also listened to a couple of long interviews. Andrew Yang was in Iowa and explained some of his platform. When asked about climate, he mentioned the Paris Accords and then said, "We could plant trees." This is actually related to carbon emissions as well as temperature and water so he is thinking clearly about a global issue and seeking long-term solutions. As individuals, we can, of course, also plant trees, but we can support this effort by using Ecosia as the browser so there are steps we can take as individuals that make a difference on a larger scale, but we need to exercise our influence by supporting what is constructive rather than what is promoted by those with excessive influence.

While on this topic, I wanted to find a way to introduce the work of Dr. Gabor Maté. He is a thought-provoking physician with many insights into addiction. In one of his talks, he said that power is the strongest addiction and suggested we try to take away power so as discover how addictive it is. That resonated with me because I have spoken out so strongly against power. Many people do not fully grasp why I have been so outspoken on this topic. The main reason is that power is used to promote one interest at the expense of another. If successful, it deprives one person of rights over his or her own body and perhaps even knowledge. This is certainly the case where alternative news, alternative medicine, and alternative energy are concerned. Unless we understand that the issue is not one of winners and losers such as in competitive sports or even elections, it involves depriving one of jurisdiction over oneself so it is intrusive and unwelcome.

Then, as we watch the headlines, usually sensationalized and often lacking factuality, we can look for motivation and who gains. The one who gains is the master puppeteer, and the motivation to cooperate is based on the desire to benefit regardless of the merits of the task. This allows corrupt individuals to succeed at the expense of what is best for the Planet and its inhabitants. It needs to be checkmated by millions of people rising to the challenge so that they and their descendents are not the victims. This is the fix for the seven generations that follow ours.

I am going to wrap up here for today, but I would like to mention a possible opportunity for a very small number of people with Lyme disease to participate in a study. If interested, contact me privately (do not hit reply but use the contact form). I would also like to ask you to make referrals to my web sites. Surviving is very difficult and getting the word out is also challenging. You can help! Please share links and recommend my product line!

Many blessings,
