Cannabis in Modern Medicine

California has been allowing lawful use of cannabis since 1996. Of course it had only been subject to federal interference for 26 years at that time. It was so widely used as medicine that the push to demonize it utilized a name change to keep the public from resisting the criminal change. While cannabis was widely used, nobody knew anything about that “dangerous new drug Marihuana” and were okay that the politicians attacked its users with police agencies, violence and prison sentences. During the 23 year period of legalization within California, Dr. Allan Frankel became dissilusioned with the pharmaceuticals dominating his line of work and excited about medical successes with cannabis. He has now spent the last thirteen years […]

plantain

Since I strongly dislike uninformative teaser headlines, I put the topic right up there. I am impressed that this hearty “weed” grows well in our somewhat harsh Montana environment, particularly in abused driveway ‘soil’ and similar tough ecosystems. I’m promising myself to begin learning more about the healthy harvesting that lies unused right before my eyes … and under my feet. I can begin making such promises now that I am ALMOST caught up with the rush I have been in developing our current homestead to a basic operational level.   This common driveway weed is also one of the most powerful natural medicines 07/13/2016 / By usafeaturesmedia (Homesteading.news) It’s known to pop up as a persistent weed in gardens, on […]

Livestrong.com and Cardiologist Promote Apple Watch Despite Known Cardiac Risks From Electromagnetic Radiation and WiFi   By B.N. Frank Telecom companies have been warning shareholders for many years that they may eventually be held liable for their devices and transmitters.  Insurance companies won’t cover their devices or transmitters because it’s too risky.  Regardless, many health organizations still promote wearable tech as beneficial even though boatloads of research has determined that exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) aka “Electrosmog”  (including WiFi) is biologically harmful.  Symptoms and severity from exposure varies and includes cardiac issues (see 1, 2, 3, 4). A quick search on Livestrong.com indicates they regularly promote wearable tech.  More nonsense was posted recently which includes a recommendation from a […]

increasing resistance to mandatory vaccinations

Good news below from the Collective Evolution website. As totalitarian state governments flex their muscles on forcing injections, people who have reasons for not wanting them are fighting back. I don’t consider myself to be spectacularly brilliant, yet I know how human bodies resist disease, and how they learn from each disease that attacks, improving the speed and effectiveness of responses for all subsequent attacks, even from unrelated diseases. This is somehow not common knowledge though readily available. No magic here. The $24,000,000,000 (twenty four trillion dollar) vaccine industry has been expanding and continues to grow fantastically. Were people to actually understand this bit of animal physiology, the culprits would be unemployed, darn-near unemployable, and quite possibly strung up […]

Illegal Levels of Radiation Emitted by Popular Cellphones

Before I turn you over to Doctor Mercola’s article, I want to point out we are talking about micro-waves. The frequencies transmitted by these devices are the same ones that cook food in common kitchen microwave ovens. That these radio frequency waves cook flesh, meat, fat and organic matter should at the very least be given some thought by those who can choose to be close, far, frequent or rare in their exposure to them. The lackadaisical perspective by users, manufacturers and regulators relates directly to the spikes in human cancers in places intensly exposed. The chart above if from a Danish study. In our country bad news about cell phones is discouraged. Not talked about is the usage […]

How Art Changes Consciousness

By Jacob Devaney Art can heal us, inspire us, and alter our brain chemistry With so much talk about the evidence of the positive effects of yoga and meditation, you might be surprised at what scientific research also says about how art effects the brain. Long before modern neuroscience, artists were creating works to inspire people and today complex brain imaging scans can show us just how art changes the physiology of our brains. Contemplation, observing, and taking in beauty all stimulate pleasure centers within the brain while increasing blood flow by up to 10% in the medial orbitofrontal cortex. This can lead to an elevated state of consciousness, wellbeing, and better emotional health. The blood flow increased for a beautiful painting just as […]

the battle against putting mercury in our mouths

This is some insight into the effort environmental and health activists both agree on. Putting mercury into our mouths and environment is one disservice the dental industry should STOP providing. For reasons that defy rational explanation, the American Dental Association has been fighting to not only continue this in the face of strong evidence against the practice, but to silence critics as well. Their days of owning the conversation and poisoning us are running out. – Ted –   Visit the Mercola Video Library Story at-a-glance During this Mercury-Free Dentistry Week, we highlight those who stand firm against amalgam: the mercury-free dentists of the world. We salute these pioneers for challenging the dental industry’s abhorrent policy of dumping mercury […]

The Danger of Comparing Yourself to Others

A few days ago in my post The Difference Between Amateurs and Professionals I thanked Farnam Street for the excellent essay, and promised I would return. I took my own advice and indeed found another gem. Go to Farnam Street to see it in its native habitat, surrounded by other gems … or read the one that tickled my fancy below. – Ted – Resonance: How to Open Doors For Other People It’s only polite. Hold the door open for others, and they will open doors for you. We are far more interdependent than we would like to admit. We biologically need to connect. “Limbic resonance” is a term used by Thomas Lewis, Fari Amini, and Richard Lannon in […]

herd immunity is real

This is an outstanding video. It is very definitely not the shrill, radical anti-vax you often hear, but a high level scientist who talks about what Merck does right, about the level of responsibility and dedication among the scientists and other Merck workers, AND where that breaks down. He simply has questions that need answers. Since those answers do not exist, he won’t use vaccines, and has not for himself or his family. … “Scientist Jorge Araujo says that quality controls and all-important safety practices are simply not there at Merck pharmaceuticals, one of the “Pharma Five” that dominates the vaccine producing industry. This scientist may not work at Merck right now, but when he did, there simply were not […]

being 17 again for an hour

Years before I entered high school, my dad began teaching me the game he LOVED and excelled at. I entered a high school of 3,000 baby boomers (and graduated) as a distinctly small boy of 5’2″, 98 pounds, but was the 3rd best tennis player on the team all three of my high school years. I was the only one who could beat the coach because the better players followed the muscle-bound pin-head’s instructions while I was not so predictable. Tennis is a fast-paced, thinking, strategy game with an athletic skill set thrown in. I enjoyed the game then, but only found tennis partners once or twice after that. The last five years has found me teaching quite a few […]

cancer treatment that works

UK Man Quits Chemo and Beats Cancer with Cannabis Activist Post The US government has finally acknowledged the anticancer properties of cannabis. At this point it’s pretty difficult to ignore the evidence, including countless testimonials of people who cured their cancer with cannabis extracts. The latest example is a young man whose attempts at traditional cancer treatments of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy failed to get rid of his stage-three bowel cancer. Cannabis oil was a last ditch effort, and it worked. As reported by the Stoke Sentinel: CANCER survivor David Hibbitt is celebrating being given the all-clear by getting married Friday, April 17 – and claims his recovery is down to taking cannabis oil. The 33-year-old will tie the knot […]

The Eisenhower Decision Matrix

The Art of Manliness website has a great article on priority setting and coherently organizing your life. This is not a weak area for me now, but it is nice for me to review and certainly worth sharing here. I am not going to post the article; just a short overview and link.
