Read the Fine Print, Part Two—Nearly 400 Adverse Reactions Listed in Vaccine Package Inserts

By the Children’s Health Defense Team | Children’s Health Defense

Package inserts are available online for all vaccines licensed in the U.S. In addition to containing bits of practical information for the clinicians who administer the vaccines, the inserts provide members of the public with one of their only opportunities to learn about a vaccine’s contraindications, warnings, precautions and—perhaps most importantly—potential adverse reactions.

The inserts communicate the information about adverse reactions in two distinct sections: “Clinical trials experience” (Section 6.1) and “Data from postmarketing experience” from the U.S. or other countries (Section 6.2). In April, 2020, Children’s Health Defense summarized the postmarketing data for over three dozen vaccines given routinely to American infants, children and adolescents. That tally showed that vaccines touted for the prevention of 13 illnesses (Table 1) have been linked to at least 217 adverse medical outcomes reported post-licensure, including serious infections, autoimmune conditions, life-threatening allergies and death.

As noted in April, the postmarketing list is far from exhaustive, because manufacturers have the latitude to decide which outcomes to list in the inserts—using loose criteria determined by severity, frequency of reporting and “strength of evidence for a causal relationship.” In addition, vaccine adverse events are notoriously underreported, not least because medical schools do not teach doctors to recognize vaccine injuries. But what would the picture look like if the adverse reactions observed during clinical trials were also added to the list?

This combination of clinical trial and postmarketing data presents a dramatic picture, with almost double the total number of undesirable post-vaccination outcomes …

Double trouble

Children’s Health Defense can now answer that question. The revised chart (Table 2) includes the adverse reactions reported in the clinical trial sections of 41 vaccine brands covering diphtheria, Haemophilus influenzae type b, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, human papillomavirus, influenza, meningococcal infection, pertussis, pneumococcal infection, polio, rotavirus, tetanus and varicella. This combination of clinical trial and postmarketing data presents a dramatic picture, with almost double the total number of undesirable post-vaccination outcomes—397 different types of reactions reported pre- and post-licensure.

Although roughly 400 adverse events is a sobering number, again, it is probably an underestimate. This is because most clinical trials follow participants for an absurdly short period of time—three days here, seven days there—and do not capture problems that arise beyond that brief window, even though clinicians recognize (and the scientific literature confirms) that vaccine reactions are not always immediate or acute. Moreover, even for those few days of monitoring, the inserts are often short on details, citing only a smattering of adverse events collected from a predetermined list of “solicited” reactions and only sometimes accepting “unsolicited” feedback. In addition, the fact that vaccine clinical trials typically compare vaccine against vaccine rather than vaccine against inert placebo makes it easy to divert attention from specific adverse reactions by simply citing “similar rates” of adverse reactions in both groups.

… and that vaccines can cause the very illnesses—or adverse consequences of those illnesses—that they are supposed to prevent.

Clinical trial themes

The April discussion of postmarketing adverse events noted several themes, including the facts that all vaccines are capable of producing adverse reactions (though Gardasil and Gardasil 9 are macabre standouts) and that vaccines can cause the very illnesses—or adverse consequences of those illnesses—that they are supposed to prevent. The clinical trial data reinforce these points and also highlight some new themes:

  • The adverse reactions reported following clinical trials do not necessarily match up to the adverse reactions reported post-licensure. This is particularly the case for vaccine-associated deaths; whereas the April postmarketing-only list included just two categories of death associated with six vaccines, the addition of clinical trial data brings the total up to 40 types of death associated with 13 vaccines.
  • Sizeable proportions of participants in vaccine clinical trials experience unpleasant reactions, including fever, chills, pain, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, rash, loss of appetite and irritability.  For example, in clinical trials for the five-pronged Pentacel vaccine (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b and polio)—given as a four-dose series beginning at six weeks of age—almost half of the young children (48%) experienced injection-site “tenderness” after the first dose (defined as “whimpering” or crying when the arm or leg was touched or moved); about the same percentage (46%) experienced “lethargy,” 59% cried “inconsolably” and 77% were “fussy” or “irritable.” In adolescents, the Adacel vaccine given as a booster for tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) produced injection-site pain in almost eight in ten teens (78%), and one in five (20%) study participants experienced pain rated as “moderate to severe.” More than two-fifths (44%) suffered from headaches.
  • Clinical trials also document more serious reactions with the potential to cause longer-term problems. Adverse reactions of particular concern—especially in the young—include asthma, seizures, heart problems, sleep problems and joint and muscle pain. Nine vaccines list anorexia as a clinical trial reaction. Surprisingly, while numerous package inserts mention serious and potentially lifelong conditions like transverse myelitis (11 vaccines) and Guillain-Barré syndrome (20 vaccines) in their postmarketing section, only a few list them as a clinical trial outcome despite hundreds of published studies pointing to post-vaccination onset.
  • Intentional and unintentional injuries are more prominent in the clinical trial data than in the postmarketing reports, particularly in association with Gardasil and certain meningococcal vaccines (abbreviated as MenACWY). These events include alcohol intoxication and drug overdose; suicidal thoughts or attempts; head and limb injuries; and falls resulting in injuries. Noting that syncope (fainting) is a common post-vaccination reaction in adolescents and young adults, the CDC states, “In 2005, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) began detecting a trend of increasing syncope reports that coincided with the licensure of 3 vaccines for adolescents: human papillomavirus (HPV), MenACWY, and Tdap. Of particular concern among adolescents has been the risk for serious secondary injuries, including skull fracture and cerebral hemorrhage.” (One of the robustly healthy volunteers in the current clinical trials for the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine illustrated this very point, narrowly escaping injury when his girlfriend caught him in the midst of a fainting episode.)
  • Illustrating how vaccines can cause what they are supposed to prevent, the clinical trials for the ProQuad measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine—intended to prevent infections associated with rashes—highlighted an astounding array of rashes. The ProQuad insert lists seven different types of rash-related adverse reactions: “rash,” “injection-site rash,” “measles-like rash,” “rubella-like rash,” “varicella-like rash,” “vesicular rash” and “viral exanthema” (an eruptive rash associated with viral infections). Across both the clinical trial and postmarketing data, ProQuad injection also appears to precede numerous infections, including “atypical measles” and measles, varicella (chickenpox), bronchitis, cellulitis and other skin infections, herpes simplex (cold sores), herpes zoster (shingles), influenza or “influenza-like illness,” meningitis, pneumonia, respiratory tract infections, sinusitis, sore throats and other viral infections.
Researchers interested in solutions rather than convenient coronavirus cover stories would do well to review the information contained in vaccine package inserts.

Mysteries explained?

One of the autoimmune conditions encountered during the clinical trials for meningococcal and rotavirus vaccines (and also reported post-licensure) is a condition called Kawasaki disease (KD). Diagnosed solely on the basis of symptoms (high fever plus symptoms such as rash, redness and lymph node swelling), KD came out of nowhere in the 1960s and 1970s when childhood vaccine programs were starting to gear up. The published literature confirms Bexero meningococcal B and rotavirus vaccination as likely triggers for KD and, in addition, points to numerous other vaccines as possible culprits, including those for hepatitis Ahepatitis BinfluenzaPrevnar-13 and multiple vaccines administered in a single health care visit. Canadian researchers have identified KD as a “condition of interest” for pediatric vaccine safety surveillance.

Ordinarily fairly obscure, KD made headlines this year when researchers started speculating that it might be one of the apparently myriad faces of SARS-CoV-2. In the UK—the first country in the world to start administering (in 2015) three doses of Bexero to infants—researchers were also the first to suggest that KD might be Covid-19-related. This week, a different group of researchers raised the same question about another low-profile autoimmune condition, myasthenia gravis, asking whether it, too, could be connected to SARS-CoV-2. Researchers interested in solutions rather than convenient coronavirus cover stories would do well to review the information contained in vaccine package inserts. This information clearly points the way to a different set of questions and answers, pertaining not only to autoimmunity but also to the many other health problems besieging American children.

Eating Your Early Dinner Aids Weight Loss and Lowers Cancer Risk

Article Source: Mercola.com

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Eating dinner at 2 p.m., or skipping supper altogether, and fasting until the next morning, combats weight gain by reducing hunger, increasing fat burning and improving metabolic flexibility to burn both fat and carbs
  • People who eat supper at least two hours before bedtime have a 20 percent reduction in cancer risk for breast and prostate cancer combined
  • Men and women who eat dinner two or more hours before bedtime have a 26 percent and 16 percent lower risk of prostate and breast cancer respectively than those who eat dinner closer to bedtime
  • “Morning people” who have a natural affinity for getting up early in the morning are at particularly high risk for cancer when eating dinner too close to bedtime, compared to “night owls”
  • Avoiding food at least two or three hours before bedtime will help you optimize your mitochondrial function, which is key for optimal health and chronic disease prevention

By Dr. Mercola

For years, a standard dietary recommendation said to stabilize your blood sugar and insulin levels (thereby optimizing energy and maintaining a healthy weight) has been to eat three square meals a day with small snacks in between. On top of that, health experts (influenced by the food industry) maintained that processed foods fortified with RDA nutrients are just as good as, and maybe even better than, cooking from scratch.

Vegetable oil in lieu of saturated animal fats, low-fat instead of full-fat, and products fortified with iron and other vitamins and minerals are but a few examples. Today, science is clearly pointing out the fallacies of these strategies. In fact, this all-day grazing — especially on processed foods — has been identified as a key driver of obesity and chronic ill health.

The most obvious risk with spreading out your meals to morning, noon and evening is overeating. Other less obvious risks are biological changes that result in metabolic dysfunction and the inability to burn fat.

Remember, our ancient ancestors did not have access to food around the clock, year-round, and from a historical perspective it is beyond obvious your body was designed for intermittent periods of fasting — either daily or seasonally, or both. In fact, modern research reveals a number of beneficial effects take place when you go for periods of time without eating, and the timing of these periods of fasting also appears to have a significant influence on your biology.

For a number of years now I have been strongly advising to avoid eating at least three hours before bed, and now two recent studies highlight the benefits of eating early dinner, or skipping supper altogether. In one, this singular meal time change was found to combat weight gain. In another, it was found to have a significant influence on your cancer risk. There are logical reasons for these effects, which I’ll review here.

Skipping Supper Improves Metabolic Flexibility

The first study1 found that eating a very early dinner, or skipping it entirely, alters the way your body burns fat and carbohydrates, resulting in reduced hunger and improved fat burning. The key timing feature of this early time-restricted feeding (eTRF) regimen is to eat your last meal of the day by midafternoon, and then fast until the next morning.

I actually prefer the term time restricted eating (TRE) and will use it in this article. Lead author Courtney Peterson, Ph.D., from the Pennington Biomedical Research Center told Science Daily:2

“Eating only during a much smaller window of time than people are typically used to may help with weight loss. We found that eating between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. followed by an 18-hour daily fast kept appetite levels more even throughout the day, in comparison to eating between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., which is what the median American does.”

To investigate the effect of TRE, Peterson and her team followed 11 overweight volunteers for a total of eight days. During the first four days, they ate all of their meals between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. During the following four days, they ate between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The only thing that changed was the timing of the meals; the total calories remained the same throughout. Data on calorie burning, fat burning and appetite revealed that even though the participants ate the same number of calories each day, and burned about the same number of calories, the TRE schedule:

  • Lowered hunger
  • Increased fat burning for several hours during the evening
  • Improved metabolic flexibility, allowing their bodies to more efficiently switch between the burning of carbohydrates and fats

As you may also know, NAD biology is one of my recent passions as I firmly believe it holds the key to radically reducing chronic degenerative disease and optimizing longevity functions. It turns out that NAMPT is the rate limiting enzyme to make NAD in the salvage pathways that convert the approximate 9 grams you use every day and mostly recycle back to its active form.

It turns out this enzyme is under strong circadian control and when you disrupt your circadian cycle by ignoring the time restriction eating windows, you compromise your body’s ability to create NAD, thus radically limiting your body’s ability to repair DNA damage.

Late-Night Eating Boosts Free Radical Damage

The research points to the influence of your circadian rhythm, and how taking advantage of the peaks and lows of this rhythm can help you optimize your metabolism. Many metabolic functions operate at their peak in the morning and early in the day, becoming less efficient as the day draws to a close and your body prepares for rest and sleep.

But there’s actually more to it than that. Avoiding food before bed will also help you optimize your mitochondrial function, and that’s key for all sorts of disease prevention. In simple terms, when you’re sleeping, your body needs the least amount of energy, and if you feed it when energy is not needed, your mitochondria end up creating excessive amounts of damaging free radicals.

So, avoiding late-night eating is a really simple way to prevent cellular damage from occurring — damage that might otherwise impair your mitochondrial functioning, lower your energy level, and ultimately contribute to all sorts of degenerative disease, including cancer.

Eating Early Dinner Lowers Your Cancer Risk

This brings us to the second study,3,4 published in the International Journal of Cancer last month. Here, they investigated “whether timing of meals is associated with breast and prostate cancer risk taking into account lifestyle and chronotype, a characteristic correlating with preference for morning or evening activity.”

To analyze this potential link, they conducted a population‐based case‐control study including 1,800 people with prostate and breast cancer, who were then compared to 2,100 cancer-free controls who also had never worked a night shift. Subjects completed a food frequency questionnaire and answered questions about the timing of their meals, activity levels, sleep habits and chronotype. According to the authors:

“Compared with subjects sleeping immediately after supper, those sleeping two or more hours after supper had a 20 percent reduction in cancer risk for breast and prostate cancer combined … A similar protection was observed in subjects having supper before 9 p.m. compared with supper after 10 p.m. …

Adherence to diurnal eating patterns and specifically a long interval between last meal and sleep are associated with a lower cancer risk, stressing the importance of evaluating timing in studies on diet and cancer.”

Men who ate supper at least two hours before bedtime had a 26 percent lower risk of prostate cancercompared to those who ate dinner closer to bedtime, and women who ate an earlier dinner had a 16 percent lower risk of breast cancer compared to women eating dinner within two hours of going to sleep.

Indeed, as noted by Dr. Ganesh Palapattu, chief of urologic oncology at the University of Michigan Medical School (who was not involved in this study), “Not only are you what you eat. You are how you eat, and it might very well be that you are when you eat.”5

What’s more, “morning larks,” people who have a natural affinity for getting up early in the morning, were at particularly high risk for cancer when eating dinner too close to bedtime, compared to “evening people” who naturally get more energetic later at night.

While study author Manolis Kogevinas, Ph.D., a research professor at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health, told CNN6 that the mechanisms are unclear, this reduction in cancer risk makes sense when you consider the effect late-night eating has on your mitochondria.

Chronic inflammation is a hallmark of cancer, and by feeding your body late at night, the excess free radicals generated in your mitochondria will simply fuel that inflammation. Mitochondrial dysfunction in general has also been shown to be a central problem that allows cancer to occur. To learn more about this, see “The Metabolic Theory of Cancer and the Key to Cancer Prevention and Recovery.”

Why Continuous Feeding Is so Bad for Your Health

In recent years, it’s become increasingly clear that your body simply isn’t designed to run optimally when continuously fed. If you eat throughout the day and never skip a meal, your body adapts to burning sugar as its primary fuel, which downregulates enzymes that utilize and burn stored fat. As a result, you start gaining weight, and efforts at weight loss tend to be ineffective.

To lose body fat, your body must be able to burn fat. Without this metabolic flexibility, the fat stays and no amount of exercise will budge it out of place.

What’s more, many biological repair and rejuvenation processes take place while you’re fasting, and this is another reason why all-day grazing triggers disease. In a nutshell, your body was designed to a) run on fat as its primary fuel, while still having the metabolic flexibility to effectively burn carbs (you need to be able to burn both), and b) cycle through periods of feast and famine.

Today, most people do the complete opposite — their bodies burn primarily carbs, having lost or severely impaired their ability to burn fat, and they eat a lot, every day, year-round. Intermittent fastingis a term that covers an array of different meal timing schedules. As a general rule, it involves cutting calories in whole or in part, either a couple of days a week, every other day, or daily.

The TRE used in the first featured study is but one example of intermittent fasting, and is quite similar to my “peak fasting” regimen, which involves fasting for 16 to 18 hours each day and eating all of your meals within the remaining window of six to eight hours, making sure your last meal is at least three hours before bed.

To make this schedule work, you need to skip either breakfast or dinner, and a strong case can be made for skipping dinner. Remember, as these new studies show it is vital to avoid eating your last meal within three hours of your bedtime. That said, the key point of intermittent fasting is the cycling of feasting (feeding) and famine (fasting), which mimics the eating habits of our ancestors and restores your body to a more natural state that allows a whole host of biochemical benefits to occur.

Weight loss is really just the beginning, but it can be quite radical. A recent Today article7 discusses how Dr. Kevin Gendreau lost 125 pounds in 18 months using intermittent fasting.

Cut Diabetes and Heart Disease Risk Just by Changing Timing of Your Meals

For starters, cycling in and out of fasting is a powerful way to improve your insulin sensitivity and reverse insulin resistance. In 2005, Danish researchers demonstrated that intermittent fasting quickly increases your insulin-mediated glucose uptake rate.8 Eight healthy men in their mid-20s fasted 20 hours every other day for 15 days. At the end of the trial, their insulin had become more efficient at managing blood sugar.

According to the authors, this confirms the theory of “thrifty genes,” which is similar to Dr. Richard Johnson’s finding that metabolic syndrome is actually a healthy adaptive condition that animals undergo to store fat to help them survive periods of famine. The problem is that most all of us are continuously eating and never fasting. As noted by the Danish researchers:

“Insulin resistance is currently a major health problem. This may be because of a marked decrease in daily physical activity during recent decades combined with constant food abundance. This lifestyle collides with our genome, which was most likely selected in the late Paleolithic era (50000 – 10000 B.C.) by criteria that favored survival in an environment characterized by fluctuations between periods of feast and famine.

The theory of thrifty genes states that these fluctuations are required for optimal metabolic function … This experiment is the first in humans to show that intermittent fasting increases insulin-mediated glucose uptake rates, and the findings are compatible with the thrifty gene concept.”

So, by mimicking the natural fluctuations in food availability with an intermittent fasting schedule, you naturally optimize your metabolic function without actually changing what or how much you eat when you DO eat, keeping in mind the quality of the nutrients you eat, of course.

Studies have also found compelling links between fasting and reduced risk of heart disease.9 One 2012 study10 found those who fasted on a regular basis had a 58 percent lower risk of coronary disease compared to those who never fasted (90 percent of the participants were Mormons who are encouraged to fast one day a month). Regular fasting was also found to be associated with lower glucose levels and lower body mass index overall.

Intermittent Fasting Promotes General Health and Longevity

There’s also plenty of research showing that fasting has a beneficial impact on longevity. There are a number of mechanisms contributing to this effect. Normalizing insulin sensitivity is a major one, but fasting also inhibits the mTOR pathway, which plays an important part in driving the aging process when it is excessively activated. The fact that it improves a number of potent disease markers also contributes to fasting’s overall beneficial effects on general health.

Interestingly, research11 shows that fasting increases cholesterol — low-density lipoprotein (LDL, often misconstrued as “bad” cholesterol) by an average of 14 percent and high-density lipoprotein (HDL or “good” cholesterol) by 6 percent. Conventional medicine tells us cholesterol should be as low as possible to avoid heart disease, but this is more myth than fact.

The reason cholesterol may go up when fasting is because cholesterol is part of the biochemical chain that allows your body to process fat. Dr. Benjamin D. Horne, director of cardiovascular and genetic epidemiology at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute, and the study’s lead author, explains:

“Fasting causes hunger or stress. In response, the body releases more cholesterol, allowing it to utilize fat as a source of fuel, instead of glucose. This decreases the number of fat cells in the body … This is important because the fewer fat cells a body has, the less likely it will experience insulin resistance, or diabetes.”

Horne also found that fasting triggers a dramatic increase in human growth hormone (HGH) — 1,300 percent in women, and 2,000 percent in men. The only other thing that can compete in terms of dramatically boosting HGH levels is high-intensity interval training. HGH, commonly referred to as “the fitness hormone,” plays an important role in maintaining health, fitness and longevity, including promotion of muscle growth and boosting fat loss by revving up your metabolism.

Fasting also upregulates autophagy and mitophagy — natural cleansing processes necessary for optimal cellular renewal and function — and triggers the generation of stem cells. The cyclical abstinence from food followed by refeeding also massively stimulates mitochondrial biosynthesis.

Importantly, most of these rejuvenating and regenerating benefits occur during the refeeding phase, not the fasting phase. The same holds true for nutritional ketosis, which produces the greatest benefits when pulsed (cycling between low net-carb and higher net-carb intakes).

For Optimal Results, Combine Fasting With a Ketogenic Diet

This brings us to another important point: Recent research shows that intermittent fasting is most beneficial when combined with a ketogenic diet. The study12,13 in question examined the effects of intermittent fasting on weight loss and metabolic disease risk parameters in obese volunteers.

Here, the participants were allowed to eat whatever they wanted in any quantity between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., while fasting for the remaining 16 hours. The outcomes were then compared to a nonintervention control group.

Overall, participants consumed about 350 fewer calories per day and lost just under 3 percent of their body weight after three months. Systolic blood pressure also dropped about 7 mmHg, compared to the historical control group. While this may sound “good enough,” there’s an important detail that needs to be addressed.

While participants did lose weight, other really important metabolic health parameters did not significantly improve, including visceral fat mass, diastolic blood pressure, triglycerides, fasting glucose and fasting insulin.

One of the key benefits of intermittent fasting is normalizing your glucose and insulin levels — along with many other biological metrics, including all of the ones mentioned above — and that simply didn’t happen here. While the authors didn’t offer an explanation, I believe the answer is fairly obvious, based on the evidence.

The participants were not instructed to alter WHAT they ate, and if they were anything like a majority of Americans, a large portion of their diet was likely processed food and probably even fast food. I’ve repeatedly stressed the importance of eating a diet high in healthy fats, moderate in protein with unrestricted amounts of fresh vegetables to optimize overall health on any intermittent fasting program. This study basically shows you what happens when you fail to address your food choices.

In a nutshell, unless you also balance your macronutrient ratios, you might lose weight but you’ll forgo many of the most important health benefits. If you lose weight but don’t move the needle on glucose, insulin and other disease risk parameters, then you’re not impacting your chronic disease risk. So, for optimal health and longevity, I believe it’s really important to combine intermittent fasting with cyclical nutritional ketosis.

Cyclical is the key term here, as once you are metabolically flexible I believe the research is clear you do not want to remain in chronic ketosis as that is counterproductive to long-term health. You must regularly cycle in and out of ketosis, ideally on days when you are doing strength training.

The cyclical ketogenic diet provides many of the same health benefits associated with fasting and intermittent fasting, and when done together, most people will experience significant improvements in their health — including not just weight loss,14 which is more of an inescapable side effect of the metabolic improvements that occur, but also improved insulin sensitivity,15 increased muscle mass, reduced inflammation and oxidative damage,16 reduced risk of cancer and Alzheimer’s,17 and increased longevity.

Why Cycle In and Out of Ketosis?

A ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting both allow your body to shift from sugar- to fat-burning — an important metabolic flexibility that in turn promotes optimal function of all the cells and systems in your body. And, while there’s evidence supporting either of these as stand-alone strategies, it seems clear to me that combining them will produce the best results overall.

As there are caveats with intermittent fasting, such as the importance of eating healthy whole or minimally processed foods when you do eat, there are caveats when it comes to nutritional ketosis as well.

Most people believe continuous keto is the key to success, but mounting evidence suggests this is not the case. This is why the mitochondrial metabolic therapy (MMT) program detailed in my book, “Fat for Fuel,” stresses cyclical ketosis. There are at least two significant reasons for the pulsed approach:

1.Insulin suppresses hepatic glucogenesis, i.e., the production of glucose by your liver. When insulin is chronically suppressed long-term, your liver starts to compensate for the deficit by making more glucose. As a result, your blood sugar can begin to rise even though you’re not eating any carbohydrates.

In this situation, eating carbohydrates will actually lower your blood sugar, as the carbs will activate insulin, which will then suppress your liver’s production of glucose. Long-term chronic suppression of insulin is an unhealthy metabolic state that is easily avoidable by cycling in and out of keto.

2.More importantly, many of the metabolic benefits associated with nutritional ketosis in general actually occur during the refeeding phase. During the fasting phase, clearance of damaged cell and cell content occurs, but the actual rejuvenation process takes place during refeeding.

In other words, cells and tissues are rebuilt and restored to a healthy state once your intake of net carbs increases. (The rejuvenation that occurs during refeeding is also one of the reasons intermittent fasting is so beneficial, as you’re cycling between feast and famine.)

What You Eat, and When, Have a Significant Impact on Your Health

In summary, while eating real food is the foundation for a healthy life, you can significantly leverage the benefits of a healthy whole diet by making small tweaks to your meal timing, macronutrient ratios, and cycling in and out of ketosis once your body regains its ability to burn fat.

Again, fasting and nutritional ketosis provide many of the same benefits, and both work best when implemented in a pulsed fashion. For instructions on how to implement cyclical keto and fasting, see “Why Intermittent Fasting Is More Effective Combined With Ketogenic Diet.”

Together, I believe cyclical keto and intermittent fasting is a near-unbeatable combination capable of really maximizing the health benefits of both. Importantly, when deciding your intermittent fasting schedule, remember to eat your last meal as early in the afternoon as possible, to optimize your metabolism and avoid the side effects of late-night eating, which include increased hunger, inflammation and a heightened cancer risk.




8 Inspiring Steps To Live a Healthier Life And Naturally Avoid Disease

By Phillip Schneider | Waking Times

Your health is one of the most important things that you can focus on throughout your life. Unfortunately, not everyone takes it very seriously and many people live much of their lives feeling lethargic and in full of pain. Despite the fact that food and medicine are more readily available than at any time in history, the quality is typically questionable at best. In a world filled with toxins and more ways than ever to avoid exercise, the biggest health question becomes not how to cure disease, but how to prevent it while living a productive, healthy life.

If you’re looking to improve your health and in turn improve your quality of life, try following these 8 easy steps.

1. Eat Complete Proteins

It’s fairly easy to fall into the trap of getting poor nutrition. With the way that the food system has established itself in America, finding someone who gets enough vitamins and traces minerals are hard to come by, but less so due to rising demand for health-conscious foods.

First of all, try as best you can to make sure that you’re getting enough complete proteins. If you’re vegan or vegetarian then you’re going to need to get all of your amino acids from foods like quinoa, hummus, Bragg’shemp seed/milk, or a combination of beans and rice. For non-vegans, milk, eggs, and meats also offer complete proteins. Without proper protein consumption, your body will not be able to build and repair tissue properly or produce hormones, enzymes, or certain other body chemicals the way that it should.

2. Make Sure to Get Enough Vitamins

Vitamins are important for a variety of reasons. Depending on which one you’re deficient in, you could feel tired, suffer from a loss of appetite, mood swings, or chapped lips (amongst other things). A balanced diet will usually supply you with enough vitamins, but many people can benefit from taking supplements as well.

The two most common vitamin deficiencies are B-12 and D3. B-12 is needed for the formation of DNA in the body as well as the manufacturing of red blood cells and the normal function of nerve cells. D3 is essential to aid in bone growth as well as regulate your mood. Vitamin D is produced by the body when exposed to sunlight, but can also be obtained through milk and fish.

3. Avoid Pharmaceutical “Medicine”

Much of what has been discovered in the world of medicine over the past hundred years has ultimately led to longer lifespans and new treatments for diseases that could have only been dreamed of before. However, a lot of what we get from the sphere of modern medicine is quite unsafe.

One study from the Journal of American Medical Association shows us that 1 in 3 drugs that were approved by the FDA from 2001 to 2010 was found to be associated with significant safety issues after being tested on patients. As alarming as this statistic is, you don’t have to play that game of Russian roulette if you don’t want to. Research is increasingly showing that a variety of medicinal herbs such as cannabisturmeric, and more are actually highly beneficial when used as medicine

4. Quit Smoking and Stay Off Cigarettes

If you care about staying alive then you probably don’t want to be smoking cigarettes. But if you already do, then quitting could be one of the single biggest achievements in your quest for lifelong health and overall well-being.

According to the CDC, cigarettes cause over 480,000 deaths per year just in the United States, which accounts for nearly 1 in 5 overall deaths. That’s more than all vehicle, gun, alcohol, drug, and HIV related deaths combined. The consequences of smoking cigarettes can include heart and lung disease, yellow teeth and nails, lowered fertility (even in men), birth defects, type 2 diabetes, lowered immune function, and cancer.

Also, cigarettes are loaded with heavy metals like lead, arsenic, and cadmium, which cause everything from kidney damage to fragile bones, behavior problems, and even lowered IQ. Needless to say, if you smoke, then quitting should be number one of your to-do list, and if you don’t, then to stay off of them should be.

5. Start Exercising

Exercise can be hard to do, especially if you don’t have the motivation. However, just doing a small amount of exercise a day can give you the inspiration to keep improving.

Although exercising can be difficult to start, the benefits are well worth it. In addition to reducing excess fat, exercise can tone muscle, lower your chance of heart disease, improve energy and mood as well as promote more restful sleep. Even simply walking in nature can help the body and mind rejuvenate. People who are prone to depression should make it an even greater priority as science is beginning to call exercise an “elixir for depression.” Running is a great way to get some exercise while also not spending much money.

6. Reduce Screen Time

Science is beginning to show us the effect that too much screen time has on our health. One large population-based study from 2013 shows us that every 1.2 hours of television time for children of 29 months resulted in poorer social, vocabulary, math, and motor skills, as well as an increase in the likelihood of being bullied. According to research from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, screen time before bed impacts not only your ability to fall asleep but how tired you are the next day. Research also points to the notion that too much screen time damages parts of the brain associated with attention, decision-making, cognitive control, and more.

“Taken together, internet addiction is associated with structural and functional changes in brain regions involving emotional processing, executive attention, decision-making, and cognitive control.”  — Lin & Zhou, research authors summarizing neuro-imaging findings in internet and gaming addiction

7. Avoid GMO’s and Artificial Foods

Although some pundits in the scientific arena like to defend GMOs as “no different from conventional breeding,” they are in fact one of the most insidious scientific advancements of the 20th and 21st centuries thus far.

As more than 40 rodent feeding studies have shown us, GMO’s are highly dangerous to us and our bodies. As clean food activist Jeffery Smith’s Institute for Responsible Technology puts it, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,’ including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.”

In fact, GMO’s are so new that almost no long-term studies exist to show us whether or not they are safe. The best that can be done is to declare, as a group of scientists from Environmental Sciences Europe has, that there is “no scientific consensus on GMO safety.” However, if you aren’t eating organic you’re likely to be eating GMO’s on a daily basis, not knowing what side effects may arise.

“The perception that everything is totally straightforward and safe is utterly naive. I don’t think we fully understand the dimensions of what we’re getting into.” – Professor Philip James, Rowett Research Institute

Other artificial foods such as fake sugars are also being found to be dangerous. Try getting back to a natural, organic diet as much as possible and avoid anything fake or artificially “low fat.” Remember that the organic label is regulated and must follow certain guidelines, while the label “all-natural” is basically meaningless as it has no regulatory backing.

8. Get a Regular Sleeping Pattern Down

Getting enough sleep is important, but it is equally important to be on a regular sleeping schedule. Because your sleep schedule helps regulate the nervous system, it in turn regulates mood as well. Studies have even shown that establishing solid sleeping and eating patterns can aid people with bipolar disorder. Studies also show that going to bed at the same time every day and getting up at the same time helps regulate your internal clock.

“We see patients with bipolar disorder as having exquisitely sensitive and fragile body clocks…They need to be more attentive than the rest of us to things like when they get up and go to bed and when they eat their meals.” – Ellen Frank, PhD

Conclusion

Your health is essential to your own well-being and productivity, as well as your ability to fend off disease. It doesn’t take a lot of money or even time to achieve higher levels of health, but it does take the knowledge of how to do it. Americans tend to have a deficiency in their health which is why self-help and weight loss gurus have come and gone throughout the past few decades (and made a fortune). However, you can avoid all of that by following a few common-sense guidelines that everyone can do without dieting fads or expensive fitness equipment and the payout is well worth it. Remember your health lies in your hands, not those of big corporations or health gurus who claim that all the answers lie in their products.

CHD V. FCC Press Conference: Evidentiary Brief Filing on Thursday, July 30 at 3:30 p.m. ET

By Unnatributed | Children’s Health Defense

Image Credit: Activist Post

Join Robert F. Kennedy’s Children’s Health Defense for a live, virtual press conference on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. ET/12:30 PT to discuss this exciting milestone in our landmark case against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – the submission of the evidentiary brief.

To fulfill our commitment to stopping the harmful exposure of our children to 5G and wireless radiation, CHD has taken this giant step toward unprecedented litigation against the FCC and you are invited to learn more directly from our attorneys and petitioners.

The case is challenging the FCC’s refusal to review its 25-year-old obsolete wireless “health guidelines”and  to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health. The FCC’s false “health guidelines” have enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of harmful wireless technology and more recently, the deployment of dangerous 5G installations.

CHD’s lawsuit asserts that the FCC’s refusal to update these guidelines despite the submission of overwhelming evidence of harm from wireless technology radiation, is capricious, arbitrary, not evidence based, and an abuse of its discretion. The success of our case will be a game changer in the battle to stop Big Tech from further damaging children and all life.

This evidentiary brief is the main submission in our case and provides the evidence upon which the petitioners rely. It cites thousands of studies, including those conducted by U.S. government agencies, and numerous reports that show clear evidence of harm. It also outlines scientifically the established mechanisms of harm from wireless radiation. Additionally, the brief shines a light on the human evidence of widespread sickness, which the FCC ignored when it egregiously closed its docket on the issue on Dec. 4 2019.

This illuminating and celebratory press conference will be held the day after CHD files its brief on July 29, 2020 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

During the live Zoom conference, we will offer an opportunity for questions from the media and our community of concerned citizens. Register today and watch children’s advocacy history in the making.

In this landmark case, CHD seeks justice for parents of children injured by wireless devices, including a mother whose son died from a brain tumor from cell phone use and cell tower exposure along with physicians who see the epidemic of sickness in their clinics daily. The submission of this brief brings us one step closer to holding the FCC accountable for its utter failure to protect the health and safety of our children and the public.

Speakers include: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., CHD Chairman; Dafna Tachover, Esq. MBA,  CHD’s Director of 5G & Wireless Harms Project; Scott McCollough, Esq., CHD’s attorney; and David Carpenter, M.D., a Petitioner in the case; as well as parents who submitted affidavits in the case describing their children’s injuries and death from wireless radiation.

Life Lessons From People Who’ve Lived to Be Over 100

Video Source: LifeHunters

By Dr. Joseph Mercola | mercola.com

Age is just a number, and this is clearly evident in the lives of the three centenarians interviewed in the LifeHunters video above.

Each has his or her own story — Clifford Crozier, born in 1915; Emilia Tereza Harper, born in 1913; and John Millington Denerley, born in 1914 — but you’ll notice a certain “je ne sais quoi” that they all seem to share.

Positivity and strength are certainly apparent, along with a will to live and a continued interest in and curiosity about the world around them.

Even as times changed, these people kept on living, adapting to and welcoming the new phases of their lives. It’s this fortitude and emotional resilience that has likely played a major role in their longevity.

Emotional Resilience and Optimism Help You Stay Young at Heart

Each of the centenarians in the video look far younger than their chronological years, and they certainly don’t act their age (who knows how a 100-year-old is “supposed” to act anyway). Their positive attitudes undoubtedly are to credit for helping them stay young at heart, and research backs this up.

In a study of 100 seniors (average age of 81), those who were exposed to implicit positive messages (words like creative, spry and fit) experienced gains in their physical strength.1

It’s evidence that your mind truly does have power over your body, and all of the centenarians interviewed exemplify this. If you believe your body and mind will fail you as you age, it may very well follow suit.

But the opposite also holds true, especially if your positive mindset is combined with the basic requirements for healthy living (like good sleep, fresh healthy food and staying active).

The majority of centenarians report feeling about 20 years younger than their chronological age, and their mindset has a lot to do with this self-perception.

Though Denerley is 102, for instance, he states that he feels like he’s 69 or 79. There’s a good chance, too, that if you were to evaluate his biological age, it would be closer to how he feels than to his actual chronological age.

Interestingly, experts also agree that using acceptable biomarkers to determine biological age (such as blood pressure, muscle power, skeletal mass and fitness indicators) would be a better indicator of lifespan than chronological age.2

Centenarians Eat Real Food

Notably, none of the centenarians were self-proclaimed health nuts, but they do understand the value of eating real food. There was no other option when they were born, after all. As Harper noted, she grew up eating home-cooked food. What else was there?

And more than that, her family grew their own food as well. Everything they ate was taken fresh from their garden, prepared and then put onto their plates.

In 2017, the notion of eating home-grown, home-cooked food has become more of a novelty than a norm for many people, but reverting back to this traditional way of eating is the best route for health and longevity.

The simple act of eating whole food is a theme common to centenarians (even if their diets aren’t “perfect,” like Crozier’s apparent fondness for whiskey on occasion).

Emma Morano, who, at 116, is the oldest person in the world, similarly shared with news outlets one of her dietary secrets: three eggs (two of them raw) and raw minced meat daily.3

Aside from what to eat, many centenarians also mention the importance of variations of intermittent fasting, i.e., not overeating, eating only once a day or, in Morano’s case, having only a light dinner.

In Okinawa, Japan, which has an unusually high concentration of people who live to 100 and beyond, hara hachi bu, or eating until you’re only 80 percent full, is said to be an important factor in longevity.4

Strong Relationships, Fond Memories and Living in the Moment

Another common thread among the centenarian trio? Strong, positive relationships. Each spoke fondly of their marriages which, though their spouses had passed decades earlier, still offered them fond memories. Each also was able to look back on their life experiences and relationships with appreciation and gratitude.

This, too, is backed up by science, with research showing that the types of social relationships someone enjoys — or doesn’t — can actually put them at risk for premature death. In fact, researchers found a 50 percent increased likelihood for survival for participants with stronger social relationships.5

Harper, in particular, explained that she was able to live happily because she had a lifetime of memories to fall back on. It’s important to remember this — that experiences tend to make us happier than possessions.

The “newness” of possessions wears off, as does the joy they bring you, but experiences improve your sense of vitality and “being alive” both during the experience and when you reflect back on it.

In addition, most centenarians, regardless of their health status, tend to have positive attitudes, optimism and a zest for life. In the video, you’ll notice the trio make mention of living in the moment, living for the day and having no regrets.

These are people who, despite having more than 100 years of “past,” are living very much in the present, not dwelling on what they have lost but appreciating all the living they have done (and have yet to do).

Also noteworthy, none of them has plans to go anytime soon. Each speaks of feeling strong and expects to continue living each day to its fullest. They are active — physically, mentally and socially. This, too, will only help them to stay young and healthy.

Helping Others Will Come Back to You Hundreds-Fold

Harper also spoke of the importance of being kind and helping those around you. This is a life lesson worth learning, as doing good deeds helps others in need while providing a natural mood boost for you.

Volunteering, for instance, can lower your risk of depression and anxiety and even boost your psychological well-being.6,7 Not only does it keep you active and on your feet, but there’s a definite social aspect as well, both of which contribute to happiness and longevity.

Volunteering to help others also gives you a sense of purpose and can even lead to a so-called “helper’s high,” which may occur because doing good releases feel-good hormones like oxytocin in your body while lowering levels of stress hormones like cortisol. Personality traits can also affect your longevity, which may also be playing a role in the centenarians interviewed.

Having a sense of purpose and staying productive, for instance, have been shown to promote longevity in The Longevity Project, a Stanford study spanning 80 years.8 Conscientiousness, specifically, was identified as a marker for longevity. The reason for this, the researchers believe, is because conscientious behavior influences other behaviors.

For example, conscientious people tend to make healthier choices, such as avoiding smoking and choosing work they enjoy and life partners they get along with — factors that can have a significant impact on their stress level and general contentment. Conscientious people also tend to be more productive, even past conventional retirement age, and tend to regard their work as having purpose.

The Longevity Project dismisses the idea that hard work will kill you early. On the contrary, those who stay productive and work hard all their lives actually tend to be happier, healthier and more social compared to those who don’t work as hard. Co-author and psychologist Howard S. Friedman, Ph.D., of the University of California, said in an interview with the American Psychological Association (APA):9

” … [O]ur studies suggest that it is a society with more conscientious and goal-oriented citizens, well-integrated into their communities, that is likely to be important to health and long life. These changes involve slow, step-by-step alterations that unfold across many years. But so does health. For example, connecting with and helping others is more important than obsessing over a rigorous exercise program.”

Being a Lifelong Learner Is Linked to Longevity

It’s interesting that Denerley mentioned if he had one regret it would be not taking his studies seriously enough early on. He recommended getting an education early in life as a crucial point, and this, too, is correlated with a longer life.

People with a bachelor’s degree or higher tend to live about nine years longer than people who don’t graduate from high school, according to a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics report.10 This is likely, in part, because educated people may get better jobs, plan more for their future or lead healthier lifestyles. However, having a natural curiosity about life and a desire to keep learning likely also plays a role in the longevity connection.

There Is No Set Pattern for Why Some People Live to 100 and Beyond

Despite advances in science that have linked everything from eating more vegetables to the age your mother gave birth to you (younger being better) with a longer life, no one can lay out a set plan that will guarantee you’ll live to 100. And the fact remains that centenarians and super centenarians (those who live to 110 and beyond) are a motley crew. According to Israeli physician Nir Barzilai of the Institute for Aging Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York:11

“There is no pattern. The usual recommendations for a healthy life — not smoking, not drinking, plenty of exercise, a well-balanced diet, keeping your weight down — they apply to us average people. But not to them. Centenarians are in a class of their own.”

Based on years of data from studying centenarians, Barzilai reported that when analyzing the data from his particular pool of centenarians, at age 70:12

  • 37 percent were overweight
  • 8 percent were obese
  • 37 percent were smokers (for an average of 31 years)
  • 44 percent reported only moderate exercise
  • 20 percent never exercised at all

Despite this, Barzalai is quick to emphasize you should not disregard the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices, explaining:

“Today’s changes in lifestyle do in fact contribute to whether someone dies at the age of 85 or before age 75. But in order to reach the age of 100, you need a special genetic make-up. These people age differently. Slower. They end up dying of the same diseases that we do — but 30 years later and usually quicker, without languishing for long periods.”

‘Keep Right on to the End of the Road’

What words of wisdom do centenarians have to offer to those with less life experience? “Time spent on reconnaissance is seldom wasted,” Crozier said. “Be as independent as you can but don’t be reluctant to ask for help when you think you need it.” Harper has advice of her own, noting, “A good idea is to behave well to other people, show them respect and help them as much as you possibly can, and it will be repaid hundred-folds.”

Denerley, too, has a motto for life, which he credited to Scottish comedian Sir Harry Lauder. It sums up, perhaps best of all, the attitude that’s gotten him so far in life (especially when combined with his infectious smile), “Keep right on to the end of the road.”

Russian Government Recommends Banning Wi-Fi and Cell Phones in Primary Schools

By Dafna Tachover, CHD’s Director of 5G & Wireless Harms Project | Children’s Health Defense

On July 17th, 2020, the Russian Ministry of Health published recommendations to schools to ban the use of Wi-Fi and cell phones in elementary schools. The Medical Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, prepared the recommendations together with the Russian Ministry of Health.

The information was provided to Children’s Health Defense by Professor Oleg Grigoriev, Dr.Sc, PhD, the Chairman for the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection. Professor Grigoriev has been outspoken about the harms of wireless technology and has been leading the recent initiatives by the Russian government to protect children from harm. He also tweeted about the news.

Numerous studies show profound adverse effects from Wi-Fi. Professor Martin Pall’s 2018 meta-analysis paper “Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health” references studies showing Wi-Fi causes oxidative stress, sperm/testicular damage, neuropsychiatric effects including EEG changes, apoptosis (cell death), cellular DNA damage, endocrine changes, and calcium overload. Considering the evidence of harm, scientists and medical associations have called to ban the use of Wi-Fi in schools and use wired networks instead.

Russia is following other countries around the world that have taken action to reduce the use of Wi-Fi in schools and protect the health of children. In 2013, Israel became the first country in the world to adopt limitations on the use of Wi-Fi in schools. It banned Wi-Fi in kindergartens and limited the use of Wi-Fi in elementary schools. Wi-Fi is allowed for three hours per week in the first and second grade and six hours per week for the third grade. It must be turned off at all other times. In 2017, Cypress banned Wi-Fi in kindergartens and halted the deployment of Wi-Fi in elementary schools. In addition, The Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Child Health initiated a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about cell phone and wireless radiation exposures to children.

In the US, in 2016 the governor-appointed Maryland State Children’s Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC), issued a report advising the Department of Education to recommend that local school districts reduce exposure of schoolchildren to wireless devices and radiation, and to provide wired rather than wireless internet connections. No action was taken.

This action by the Russian Health Department follows another recent action by the ministry to encourage the reduction of children’s exposure to wireless devices.  In March 2020, following the outbreak of Covid, Russia’s Department of Health together with the Scientific Research Institute of Hygiene and the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection published Safety Recommendations for Children Who Use Digital Technologies to Study at HomeThe recommendation encourages using the internet via a wired connection rather than Wi-Fi. (Children’s Health Defense also published a “step by step” guide on how to hardwire wireless devices for safe remote learning.)

Highly Alkaline Foods That Will Benefit Your Body

 

Living in this world is all about competition. As the saying goes, only the strong survive, and quite frankly, it is a hundred percent true because only the strong have what it takes to pierce through the thick layer of competition that prevents them from achieving their goals. That’s why the best thing to do is to invest time, effort and dedication in things that will make one a better person. Something that will nourish one’s body and make sure that nothing can stop him/her from making the impossible, possible. One has to change his/her diet into a more alkaline one.

An alkaline diet as recommended by AlkalineNaturals.com keeps the body’s pH level at a healthy and non-acidic state. Having a pH level below 7.2 is really not a good sign because the human body will start to store up acid, which are actually waste and byproducts from things that it consumes, making it vulnerable to Acidosis, which causes harm to the body. That is why it is very important that we, as human beings, start taking care of ourselves by incorporating more high alkaline foods that benefits the body instead of making it even sicker. Here are some highly alkaline foods that will benefit you greatly.

1. Citrus Fruits

Yes, these sour critters, although they contain acid, actually helps get rid of waste products from the body. Remember that the body becomes acidic when there is too much bad stuff is produced from food and activities. Vitamin C from citrus fruits actually helps eliminate these wastes and turn your body into a more homeostatic state. Eating oranges, limes, lemons and other fruits that contain citrus is one of the best ways to maintain a healthy body.

2. Green Leafy Veggies

Vegetables with green leaves are a great choice for an alkaline diet. They contain so much vitamins and minerals that they make your body stronger and helps fight off wastes that can be produced from activities or eating too much meat. Try consuming more spinach, kale, bokchoy and the likes and you will be healthier than ever before. There’s no hurt in trying right?

3. Rootcrops

Taro, Sweet potato and Carrots are fine example of rootcrops that have high alkaline properties and helps the body a lot in flushing out toxins and wastes. It is also a fact that these rootcrops have low carbohydrates, making it perfect for those who are in a diet and are looking for alternatives for starch.

4. The Flower Brothers

Brocolli and Cauliflower may not be everyone’s favorite when it comes to alkaline foods, but they really pass the test when it comes to making the body harmonious and pH balanced. High levels of Antioxidants and phytochemicals are present in these vegetables and are worth every bite because not only do they flush out regular toxins, but also toxins which causes cancer as well.

5. Pass the Herb Man

Lastly, I would recommend herbs like turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, and other aromatics because they also contain antioxidants and help prevent acidosis. Incorporating them into dishes and tea with a slight touch of lemon are the best ways to use these miraculous toxin fighting group.




BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth Answers Tough Questions: Focus on Dexamethasone, a Reported Treatment for COVID-19

By Robert O’Leary

Dexamethasone is now being touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19. This news was nearly simultaneous with the FDA’s decision, with little explanation or justification, to withdraw the emergency authorization use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19. It is possible that this decision may change in the future, as one or more studies are ongoing to see if hydroxychloro-quine can help those with early stages of the disease. It is important to note that none of the studies, upon which this decision was made, included zinc or Azithromycin even though they reportedly have to do with enhancing the drugs’ effectiveness and reducing its side effects.  SeeOnly US Agencies Couldn’t Grasp Benefits of Hydroxychloroquine: Trump” and “Sabotaging Hydroxychloroquine? Why Are Tests Only On Hospitalized Patients?

Nonetheless, as it stands right now, we seem to be dealing with a “one door closes, another one opens” kind of phenomenon between dexamethasone and hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine. So, what is dexamethasone and what does it do? Well, according to www.drug.com, it is:

… [A] corticosteroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

… [U]sed to treat many different inflammatory conditions such as allergic disorders and skin conditions.

… [U]sed to treat ulcerative colitis, arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, and breathing disorders.

… [And] may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. SeeDexamethasone

Dexamethasone has even shown anecdotal benefit for those suffering cerebral malaria.

Dexamethasone has been around for over 6 decades, and was first released as a medicine in 1961. It is listed in the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, and has been prescribed over a million times. SeeDexamethasone

I find it interesting that hydroxychloroquine has anti-inflammatory qualities, and is also touted to treat arthritis, lupus, and malaria. It may just be a coincidence, but these biochemicals have similar possible efficacy with the above 3 conditions, and also COVID-19. Perhaps doctors and scientists may research this question in the future, and provide us with some answers.

In any case, the fact that these are both anti-inflammatories, and can be used for so many conditions, underscores how inflammation plays such an important role in many diseases. Dr. Nathaniel Perricone was one of the first doctors to write about this. In his 2002 book, The Perricone Prescription, he stated that:

Though the correlation between inflammation and aging has only recently been recognized I have spent my entire career studying this connection and finding ways to prevent it. Today, research, academia, industry, and medicine all accept the causal relationship between inflammation and most chronic degenerative diseases, an astonishing  list that includes arthritis, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, asthma, cirrhosis of the liver, bowel disorders, meningitis, cystic fibrosis, cancer, stroke, psoriasis, and, of course, aging. See Nicholas Perricone, M.D., The Perricone Prescription: A Physician’s 28- Day Program for Total Body and Face Rejuvenation New York: Harper Resource 2002, p. 17.

What Clues Can We Find to Explain Why Dexamethasone Works against COVID?

I thought it might be useful to see what we could learn about dexamethasone from a bioacoustic biology[1] perspective, and thereby better understand why it may be turning out to be a useful treatment for COVID-19.

To do this I would like to look at the qualities of other biochemicals which happen to be at a similar or same frequency equivalent[2], and see if those qualities can provide some insight into what makes dexamethasone so effective with the virus. Looking at the frequency-based math matrix, we see the following biochemicals are near the frequency equivalent of dexamethasone:

The biochemical                                          Characteristic (among other things)

  1. Magnesium gluconate                       Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Linolenic acid                                      Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Paramethosone                                   Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Human Leukocyte Antigen-DR            Inflammatory biomarker

 

  1. Selenomethionine                                Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Chloroprednisone                                Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Cilantro                                                Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Interleukin-6                                        Anti- & Pro-inflammatory

 

And those with a different brain dominance may be influenced by the following[3]:

 

  1. Clenbuterol                                          Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Glucosamine Sulfate                            Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Pantethine                                            Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Pentoxifylline                                        Anti-inflammatory

 

  1. Conjugated Linoleic Acid                      Anti-inflammatory

Inflammation and the Vibratory Power of Biochemicals to Support our Body’s Innate Power to Heal Itself

So what can we infer from this information? What sticks out most prominently seems to be the phenomenon of inflammation. The second most salient feature is that, like dexamethasone, nearly every biochemical is anti-inflammatory as opposed to pro-inflammatory. This suggests that this area of resonant frequency has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. We have been trained to think of our body as a machine. This is a very Newtonian view. It leads us to think that one medicine, one physical substance, will cure us of our ills.

But let’s try a thought experiment. Let us for a moment relax our thinking to be less focused upon the physical body, and think about it as a bunch of atoms vibrating in such a way as to create the physical form we see every day in the mirror. Think of those atoms having positively-charged protons and negatively-charged electrons which create electric and magnetic fields in and around the body. Vibration of the particles in your body can be translated into sounds or beats per second. Cycles per second are called hertz, a measure of frequency.

If your vibrating body is not feeling well, it may enter a pro-inflammatory state of being. What does it need? Something which will reduce inflammation, i.e.: an anti-inflammatory. We have about a dozen possible candidates listed above. You could take one of those in a pill form, or by way of sound. Based upon the work at the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology and Sound Health in Albany, Ohio, both ways of ministration could serve your body’s form and function to reduce inflammation. This is because even that solid-looking pill which you take for a headache is made up of vibrating atoms with an electricity and a frequency, or frequency equivalent.

The introduction of the pill into your system delivers its vibration into your electromagnetic field. This pill’s frequency entrains, or vibrates, the whole body in such a way as to cancel out the pro-inflammatory state. The small range of frequency, in which dexamethasone sits, happens to be one which is anti-inflammatory in nature; there are others as well.

We see a similar theme when it comes to certain muscle groups in the body. The deltoid muscle, for example has its many frequency equivalents within a certain band of frequency – think of each FE as being associated with a different striated area of this particular muscle. The same can be said of certain other muscle groups in the body.

Since so many diseases and medical conditions seem to occur and proliferate when the body is in a pro-inflammatory state, the importance of anti-inflammatories should not be underestimated. A non-inflammatory body seems to be one which can fight its own battles, and self-heal.

Arguably, this should be no different with COVID-19. Generally those who are in good health, and those without co-morbidities are either unaware that they have the virus or get through it relatively quickly and with minor symptoms. These individuals are likely to suffer from less inflammation than those who become seriously ill with the virus. This is why dexamethasone does not seem to be the best option for those who have had COVID-19 for a week or less; a strengthening of the immune system for these individuals is favored instead. See “Breakthrough Drug for Covid-19 May Be Risky for Mild Cases

Greedy People Do Not Favor Affordable Remedies

Since dexamethasone is cheap and not under a patent owned by a pharmaceutical company or pharmaceutically-supported government entity, like the NIH or CDC, the medication serves the valuable public service of health. It does not serve a corporate or otherwise private interest of profit.

People like Bill and Melinda Gates, and their partners like Anthony Fauci, pursue patentable and therefore profitable vaccines. Vaccines are so-called biologics, not medicines, so they are easier to get approved. Since pharmaceutical companies have immunity, they do not need to worry about safety or legal costs. And, since they are so often put into the so-called vaccine schedule, they do not require advertising dollars for marketing them. This makes vaccines even more profitable. The vaccine industry takes in as much as $160 billion per year.

For this reason, I urge you to be watchful for negative stories or studies involving dexamethasone. This is because mainstream media receives millions of dollars from pharmaceutical companies for their advertisement of non-vaccine medicines. Interestingly, these medicine are for the treatment of conditions caused by conditions listed as potential side effects on vaccine labels. To the extent that mainstream media relies on pharmaceutical dollars for part of its livelihood, its editors seem more than happy to report what the industry wants it to say, without question or in-depth investigation. So, if Big Pharma wants to make way for future vaccine profits, don’t be surprised if it uses its influence to take the wind out of the proverbial sails of dexamethasone, just as it helped to do with hydroxychloroquine.

What should you take away from this article? Firstly, you should always question what you see in the news. Ask who benefits from going along with the suggested solutions of the government, experts, or media. Secondly, take control of your own health and be your own health advocate-including a willingness to demand different choices for how you and your family will fight this virus. Thirdly, consider doing what you can to lower your body’s level of inflammation. Fourthly, be mindful of whether you are getting an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals from food sources and supplements. Lastly, don’t face this virus, or anything else you see in the media, with fear; face it with courage and love.

Right brainers, on the other hand, are usually considered to be holistic, intuitive and emotionally oriented. It is obvious from the research done with people who have had hemispheric integration nerves severed, that we use both sides in tandem; but that we tend to favor, however slightly, one side or the other.

Why Vaccines Are Called Vaccines and How They May Lead to Our Undoing

By Catherine Austin Fitts | * Children’s Health Defense

I am not a scientist. I am not a doctor. I am not a biotech engineer. I am not an attorney. However, I read, listen, appreciate, and try to understand those who are.

I was an investment banker until politics made it impossible to continue to practice my art. I was trained as a portfolio strategist—so I map my world by watching the financial flows and allocation of resources. I was also trained as a conspiracy generator and foot soldier—conspiracies being the fundamental organizing principle of how things get done in our world. It was not until I left the establishment that I learned that those not in the club had been trained to disparage and avoid conspiracies—a clever trick that sabotages their efforts to gather power.

My response to living at war with agencies of the U.S. government for a time was to answer the questions of people who were sufficiently courageous and curious to solicit my opinion. Over many years, that response transformed into two businesses. One was The Solari Report, which continues to grow as a global intelligence network—we seek to help each other understand and navigate what is happening and contribute to positive outcomes. The other was serving as an investment advisor to individuals and families through Solari Investment Advisory Services. After ten years, I converted that business to doing an ESG screen. What those who use it want—that is not otherwise readily available in the retail market—is a screen that reflects knowledge of financial and political corruption. Tracking the metastasizing corruption is an art, not a science.

When you help a family with their finances, it is imperative to understand all their risk issues. Their financial success depends on successful mitigation of all the risks—whether financial or non-financial—that they encounter in their daily lives. Non-financial risks can have a major impact on the allocation of family resources, including attention, time, assets, and money.

Many of my clients and their children had been devastated and drained by health care failures and corruption—and the most common catalyst for this devastation was vaccine death and injury. After their lengthy and horrendous experiences with the health care establishment, they would invariably ask, “If the corruption is this bad in medicine, food, and health, what is going on in the financial world?” Chilled by the thought, they would search out a financial professional who was schooled in U.S. government and financial corruption. And they would find me.

The result of this flow of bright, educated people blessed with the resources to pay for my time was that, for ten years, I got quite an education about the disabilities and death inflicted on our children by what I now call “the great poisoning.” I had the opportunity to repeatedly price out the human damage to all concerned—not just the affected children but their parents, siblings, and future generations—mapping the financial costs of vaccine injury again and again and again. These cases were not as unusual as you might expect. Studies indicate that 54% of American children have one or more chronic diseases. Doctors who I trust tell me that number is actually much higher, as many children and their families cannot afford the care and testing necessary to properly diagnose what ails them.

One of the mothers featured in VAXXED—a must-watch documentary for any awake citizen, as is its sequel VAXXED II: The People’s Truth—estimated that a heavily autistic child would cost present value $5MM to raise and care for over a lifetime. When my clients who were grandparents insisted that they would not interfere with their children’s vaccine choices because it was “none of their business,” I would say, “Really? Who has the $5MM? You or your kids? When your kids need the $5MM to raise their vaccine-injured child, are you going to refuse them? You are the banker, and it is your money that is at risk here, so it is your business. Do you want to spend that $5MM on growing a strong family through the generations or on managing a disabled child who did not have to be disabled?” Often, that $5MM in expenditures also translates into divorce, depression, and lost opportunities for siblings.

My clients helped me find the best resources—books, documentaries, articles—on vaccines. You will find many of them linked or reviewed at The Solari Report, including in our Library.

Why . . .

Of all the questions that I had, the one that I spent the most time researching and thinking about was why. Why was the medical establishment intentionally poisoning generations of children? Many of the writers who researched and wrote about vaccine injury and death assumed it was an aberration—resulting from the orthodoxy of a medical establishment that could not face or deal with its mistakes and liabilities. That never made sense to me. Writings by Forrest Maready, Jon Rappoport, Dr. Suzanne Humphries and Arthur Firstenberg have helped me understand the role of vaccines in the con man trick of saving money for insurance companies and the legally liable.

Here is one example of how the trick may play out. A toxin creates a disease. The toxin might be pesticides or industrial pollution or wireless technology radiation. The toxin damages millions of people and their communities. Companies or their insurance provider may be liable for civil or criminal violations. Then a virus is blamed. A “cure” is found in a “vaccine.” The pesticide or other toxic exposure is halted just as the vaccine is introduced, and presto, the sickness goes away. The vaccine is declared a success, and the inventor is declared a hero. A potential financial catastrophe has been converted to a profit, including for investors and pension funds. As a portfolio strategist, I admit it has been a brilliant trick and likely has protected the insurance industry from the bankrupting losses it would experience if it had to fairly compensate the people and families destroyed.

Thanks to the work of Robert Kennedy and Mary Holland of Children’s Health Defense, I now understand the enormous profits generated by so-called “vaccines” subsequent to the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and the creation of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program—a federal no-fault mechanism for compensating vaccine-related injuries or deaths by establishing a claim procedure involving the United States Court of Federal Claims and special masters. Call a drug or biotech cocktail a “vaccine,” and pharmaceutical and biotech companies are free from any liabilities—the taxpayer pays. Unfortunately, this system has become an open invitation to make billions from “injectibles,” particularly where government regulations and laws can be used to create a guaranteed market through mandates. As government agencies and legislators as well as the corporate media have developed various schemes to participate in the billions of profits, significant conflicts of interest have resulted.

The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREPA or the PREP Act) became law in 2005, adding to corporate freedoms from liability. The Act “is a controversial tort liability shield intended to protect vaccine manufacturers from financial risk in the event of a declared public health emergency. The act specifically affords to drug makers immunity from potential financial liability for clinical trials of . . . vaccine at the discretion of the Executive branch of government. PREPA strengthens and consolidates the oversight of litigation against pharmaceutical companies under the purview of the secretary of Health and Human Services.” (~ Wikipedia)

The engineering of epidemics

Over time, this has evolved to the engineering of epidemics—the medical version of false flags. In theory, these can be “psyops” or events engineered with chemical warfare, biowarfare, or wireless technology. If this sounds strange, dive into all the writings of the “Targeted Individuals.”

I learned about this first-hand when I was litigating with the Department of Justice and was experiencing significant physical harassment. I tried to hire several security firms; they would check my references and then decline the work, saying it was too dangerous. The last one took pity and warned me not to worry about electronic weaponry, letting me know that my main problem would be low-grade biowarfare. This biowarfare expert predicted that the opposing team would drill holes in the wall of my house and inject the “invisible enemy.” Sure enough, that is exactly what happened. I sold my house and left town. That journey began a long process of learning how poisoning and nonlethal weapons are used—whether to move people out of rent-controlled apartments, sicken the elderly to move them to more expensive government-subsidized housing, gangstalk political or business targets, or weaken or kill litigants—and the list goes on. Poisoning turned out to be a much more common tactic in the game of political and economic warfare in America than I had previously understood.

Americans increasingly looked like a people struggling with high loads of heavy metals toxicity.

After I finished my litigation, I spent several years detoxing from heavy metal toxicity—including from lead, arsenic, and aluminum. As I drove around America, I realized it was not just me. Americans increasingly looked like a people struggling with high loads of heavy metals toxicity. In the process of significantly decreasing my unusually high levels of heavy metals, I learned what a difference the toxic load had made to my outlook, my energy, and my ability to handle complex information.

This brings me to the question of what exactly a vaccine is and what exactly is in the concoctions being injected into people today as well as the witches’ brews currently under development.

Aborted fetal tissue, animal tissue, aluminum, mercury, genetically altered materials—and what else?

What, exactly, is a vaccine?

In 2017, Italian researchers reviewed the ingredients of 44 types of so-called “vaccines.” They discovered heavy metal debris and biological contamination in every human vaccine they tested. The researchers stated, “The quantity of foreign bodies detected and, in some cases, their unusual chemical compositions baffled us.” They then drew the obvious conclusion, namely, that because the micro- and nanocontaminants were “neither biocompatible nor biodegradable,” they were “biopersistent” and could cause inflammatory effects right away—or later.

Aborted fetal tissue, animal tissue, aluminum, mercury, genetically altered materials—and what else?

Whatever the ingredients of vaccines have been to date, nothing is more bizarre and unsettling than the proposals of what might be included in them in the future. Strategies—already well-funded and well on the way—include brain-machine interface nanotechnology, digital identity tracking devices, and technology with an expiration date that can be managed and turned off remotely. One report indicates that the Danish government and U.S. Navy had been paying a tech company in Denmark to make an injectible chip that would be compatible with one of the leading cryptocurrencies.

I was recently reading Mary Holland’s excellent 2012 review of U.S. vaccine court decisions (“Compulsory vaccination, the Constitution, and the hepatitis B mandate for infants and young children,” Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics) and I froze and thought, “Why are we calling the injectibles that Bill Gates and his colleagues are promoting ‘vaccines’? Are they really vaccines?”

Surveillance capitalism is underway

Most people are familiar with how Bill Gates made and kept his fortune. He acquired an operating system that was loaded into your computer. It was widely rumored that the U.S. intelligence agencies had a back door. The simultaneous and sudden explosion of computer viruses then made it necessary to regularly update your operating system, allowing Gates and his associates to regularly add whatever they wanted into your software. One of my more knowledgeable software developers once said to me in the 1990s—when Microsoft really took off—”Microsoft makes really sh***y software.” But of course, the software was not really their business. Their business was accessing and aggregating all of your data. Surveillance capitalism was underway.

The Department of Justice launched an antitrust case against Microsoft in 1998, just as the $21 trillion started to disappear from the U.S. government—no doubt with the help of specially designed software and IT systems. During the settlement negotiations that permitted Gates to keep his fortune, he started the Gates Foundation and his new philanthropy career. I laughed the other day when my tweet of one of Robert Kennedy Jr.’s articles from Children’s Health Defense—describing the gruesome technology Gates is hoping to roll out through “injectibles”—inspired a response: “Well, I guess he is finally fulfilling his side of his antitrust settlement.”

If you look at what is being created and proposed in the way of injectibles, it looks to me like these technological developments are organized around several potential goals.

The first and most important goal is the replacement of the existing U.S. dollar currency system used by the general population with a digital transaction system that can be combined with digital identification and tracking. The goal is to end currencies as we know them and replace them with an embedded credit card system that can be integrated with various forms of control, potentially including mind control. “De-dollarization” is threatening the dollar global reserve system. The M1 and M2 money supply have increased in the double digits over the last year as a result of a new round of quantitative easing by the Fed. The reason we have not entered into hyperinflation is because of the dramatic drop in money velocity occasioned by converting Covid-19 into an engineered shutdown of significant economic activity and the bankrupting of millions of small and medium-sized businesses. The managers of the dollar system are under urgent pressure to use new technology to centralize economic flows and preserve their control of the financial system.

Just as Gates installed an operating system in our computers, now the vision is to install an operating system in our bodies and use “viruses” to mandate an initial installation followed by regular updates.

A colleague once told me how Webster’s Dictionary came about. Webster said that the way the evildoers would change the Constitution was not by amending it but by changing the definitions.

A legal sneak attack

Now I appreciate why Gates and his colleagues want to call these technologies “vaccines.” If they can persuade the body politic that injectible credit cards or injectible surveillance trackers or injectable brain-machine interface nanotechnologies are “vaccines,” then they can enjoy the protection of a century or more of legal decisions and laws that support their efforts to mandate what they want to do. As well, they can insist that U.S. taxpayers fund, through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the damages for which they would otherwise be liable as a result of their experiments—and violations of the Nuremberg Code and numerous civil and criminal laws—on the general population. The scheme is quite clever. Get the general population to go along with defining their new injectible high-tech concoctions as “vaccines,” and they can slip them right into the vaccine pipeline. No need to worry about the disease and death that will result from something this unnatural delivered this quickly. The freedom from liability guaranteed by the PREP Act through the declaration of an emergency—and the ability to keep the emergency going through contact tracing—can protect them from liability for thousands if not millions of deaths and disabilities likely to follow such human experimentation. Ideally, they can just blame the deaths on a virus.

A colleague once told me how Webster’s Dictionary came about. Webster said that the way the evildoers would change the Constitution was not by amending it but by changing the definitions—a legal sneak attack.

I believe that Gates and the pharma and biotech industries are literally reaching to create a global control grid by installing digital interface components and hooking us up to Microsoft’s new $10 billion JEDI cloud at the Department of Defense as well as Amazon’s multibillion cloud contract for the CIA that is shared with all U.S. intelligence agencies. Why do you think President Trump has the military organizing to stockpile syringes for vaccines? It is likely because the military is installing the roaming operating system for integration into their cloud.

Remember—the winner in the AI superpower race is the AI system with access to the most data. Accessing your body and my body on a 24/7 basis generates a lot of data. If the Chinese do it, the Americans will want to do it, too. In fact, the rollout of human “operating systems” may be one of the reasons why the competition around Huawei and 5G telecommunications has become so fractious. As Frank Clegg, former President of Microsoft Canada has warned us, 5G was developed by the Israelis for crowd control.

In the face of global “de-dollarization,” this is how the dollar syndicate can assert the central control it needs to maintain and extend its global reserve currency financial power. This includes protecting its leadership from the civil and criminal liability related to explosive levels of financial and health care fraud in recent decades.

We need to stop allowing these concoctions to be referred to by a word that the courts and the general population define and treat as medicine and protect from legal and financial liability.

Which brings me back to you and me. Why are we calling these formulations “vaccines”? If I understand the history of case law, vaccines, in legal terms, are medicine. Intentional heavy metal poisoning is not medicine. Injectable surveillance components are not medicine. Injectable credit cards are not medicine. And injectable brain-machine interface is not a medicine. Legal and financial immunity for insurance companies does not create human immunity from disease.

How Walking Benefits Your Health and Longevity

Video Source: Body Hub

Story at-a-glance

  • Inactivity is the fourth biggest killer of adults worldwide, responsible for 9 percent of premature deaths. Walking more, ideally daily, can go a long way toward reducing this risk
  • Walking for 20 to 25 minutes per day has been found to add anywhere from three to seven years to your life span. Smokers may also increase their life span by nearly four years by walking regularly
  • Walking can be tremendously beneficial for those struggling with chronic diseases such as obstructive pulmonary disease and cardiovascular disease
  • Walking has also been shown to lower your risk of Type 2 diabetes, depression, dementia, hormonal imbalances, arthritis, PMS, thyroid disorders, fatigue, varicose veins and constipation
  • British research suggests that when it comes to weight management, regular walking can be just as beneficial, or more, than working out in a gym

By Dr. Joseph Mercola | mercola.com

While a regimented fitness routine is certainly part of a healthy lifestyle, what you do outside the gym is equally important. Most adults spend 10 hours or more each day sitting, and research1,2 shows this level of inactivity cannot be counteracted with a workout at the end of the day. To maintain health, you really need mild but near-continuous movement throughout your waking hours. Not just that, but you should also keep in mind these 9 Critical Health Guidelines for better results.

One strategy that has been shown to have a positive impact is simply to stand up more. Increasing your daily walking is another key strategy that pays significant dividends, both short term and long term. According to the World Health Organization, inactivity is the fourth biggest killer of adults worldwide, responsible for 9 percent of premature deaths,3 and walking more could go a long way toward reducing this risk.

Walking Produces Beneficial Biochemical Changes in Your Body

The short video above reviews what happens in your body while walking. For starters, when you take your first few steps, your body releases chemicals that give your body a quick boost of energy. Once you get going, your heart rate will increase, from about 70 to about 100 beats per minute. This boost in blood flow will warm up your muscles. As you move, your body will also increase production of fluid in your joints, thereby reducing stiffness.

Walking for six to 10 minutes can raise your heartbeat to about 140 beats per minute and trigger your body to start burning up to six calories per minute. While your blood pressure will rise from the exertion, this increase is counteracted by chemicals that help expand your blood vessels, such as nitric oxide. This expansion in turn allows greater amounts of oxygen-rich blood to reach your muscles and organs, including your heart and brain. Over time, taking regular walks will help lower your blood pressure if it tends to be high.

Walking for 11 to 20 minutes results in an increase in body temperature and sweating as blood vessels closer to the surface of your skin expand to release heat. At this point, you start burning about seven calories per minute. The increase in heart rate also causes you to breathe deeper. Epinephrine (adrenaline) and glucagon also begin to rise at this point to boost muscle activity. Epinephrine helps relieve asthma and allergies, which helps explain why walking and other exercises tend to have a beneficial impact on these ailments.

At 21 to 45 minutes, you’ll start burning more fat, courtesy of a drop in insulin. This is also when you’ll start experiencing greater physical and mental relaxation as your brain starts to release “feel good” endorphins. Walking has also been shown to boost memory and creative problem-solving,4 so taking a walk when you’re puzzling over a problem may allow you to come up with better solutions. One Stanford University study found walking increased creative output by an average of 60 percent, compared to sitting still.5

After 30 to 45 minutes, you’re really oxygenating your whole body, burning more fat, strengthening your heart and cardiovascular system, and boosting your immune function. Provided you’re walking outdoors and the weather complies, an hour of sunshine will also help boost your mood and provide a number of beneficial health effects associated with vitamin D production.

Those struggling with depression would do well to get out of the concrete jungle and into nature, as nature walks have been found to be particularly beneficial for your mood by decreasing rumination — the obsessive mulling over negative experiences.

Walking Boosts Health and Longevity

Several studies have confirmed that walking boosts health and longevity. For example:

In one, walking for 20 to 25 minutes per day (140 to 175 minutes per week) was found to add anywhere from three to seven years to a person’s life span.6

Research7 published last year found that as little as two hours (120 minutes) of walking per week may reduce mortality risk in older adults, compared to inactivity. Meeting or exceeding the activity guidelines of 2.5 hours (150 minutes) of moderate activity per week in the form of walking lowered all-cause mortality by 20 percent.

Research published in 2012 found brisk walking improved life expectancy even in those who are overweight.8

Smokers may also increase their life span by nearly four years by engaging in physical activity9 such as walking. Former smokers who kept up their physical activity increased their life expectancy by 5.6 years on average, reducing their all-cause mortality risk by 43 percent.

Smokers who were physically active were also 55 percent more likely to quit smoking than those who remained inactive, and 43 percent less likely to relapse once they quit. A Norwegian study10 also showed that regular exercise is as important as quitting smoking if you want to reduce your mortality risk.

About 5,700 older men were followed for about 12 years in this study, and those who got 30 minutes of exercise — even if all they did was light walking — six days a week, reduced their risk of death by about 40 percent. Getting less than one hour of light activity per week had no effect on mortality in this study, highlighting the importance of getting the “dosage” right if you want to live longer.

Walking Is Good for Whatever Ails You

Other studies have shown walking can be tremendously beneficial for people struggling with chronic diseases such as obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular disease. In one, COPD patients who walked 2 miles a day or more cut their chances of hospitalization from a severe episode by about half.11,12

Another study13 found that daily walking reduced the risk of stroke in men over the age of 60. Walking for an hour or two each day cut a man’s stroke risk by as much as one-third, and it didn’t matter how fast or slow the pace was. Taking a three-hour long walk each day slashed the risk by two-thirds. Walking has also been shown to lower your risk of:14,15

Type 2 diabetes Depression and anxiety
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Arthritis
Hormonal imbalances PMS symptoms
Thyroid disorders Fatigue
Varicose veins Constipation

So, while walking might not seem like it would be “enough” to make a significant difference in your health, science disagrees. It makes sense that walking would be an important health aspect considering humans are designed for walking. And, in our historical past, before conveniences such as automobiles and even the horse and buggy, humans walked a lot. Every day.

Walkers Generally Weigh Less Than Other Exercisers

Research16 from the London School of Economics and Political Science suggests that when it comes to weight management, regular walking can be just as beneficial, or more, than working out in a gym. To reach this conclusion, the researchers assessed the effects of a number of different workouts, comparing health markers in more than 50,000 adults who were followed for 13 years. Activities were divided into:

  • Brisk walking
  • Moderate-intensity sports (examples: swimming, cycling, gym workouts, dancing, running, football, rugby, badminton, tennis and squash)
  • Heavy housework and/or walking with heavy shopping bags
  • Heavy manual work (examples: digging, felling trees, chopping wood, moving heavy loads)

The big surprise? People who regularly walked briskly for more than 30 minutes generally weighed less than those who hit the gym on a regular basis and/or exclusively did high-intensity workouts. According to the press release, these results were “particularly pronounced in women, people over 50 and those on low incomes.”17 According to the authors:

“Given the obesity epidemic and the fact that a large proportion of people … are inactive, recommending that people walk briskly more often is a cheap and easy policy option. Additionally, there is no monetary cost to walking so it is very likely that the benefits will outweigh the costs.

It has also been shown by the same authors that walking is associated with better physical and mental health. So, a simple policy that ‘every step counts’ may be a step toward curbing the upward trend in obesity rates and beneficial for other health conditions.”

Indeed, walking has been a longstanding recommendation to meet fitness guidelines, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association have all recommended getting 30 minutes of brisk walking several days a week for general health and disease prevention.18,19

Walking Can Also Be a High-Intensity Exercise

While taking daily walks forms a great foundation upon which to build your health, research also shows that to really maximize health and longevity, higher intensity exercise is called for. Based on two large-scale studies20,21 the ideal amount of exercise to promote longevity is between 150 and 450 minutes of moderate exercise per week. During the 14-year follow up period, those who exercised for 150 minutes per week reduced their risk of death by 31 percent, compared to non-exercisers.

Those who exercised for 450 minutes lowered their risk of premature death by 39 percent. Above that, the benefit actually began to diminish. In terms of intensity, those who added bouts of strenuous activity each week also gained an extra boost in longevity. Those who spent 30 percent of their exercise time doing more strenuous activities gained an extra 13 percent reduction in early mortality, compared to those who exercised moderately all the time.

Besides doing high-intensity exercises on an elliptical, bike or treadmill, super-slow strength training is another excellent high-intensity exercise worth considering. That said, if you’re out of shape and/or overweight, the idea of high intensity interval training can seem too daunting to even attempt. The elderly may also shy away from high intensity exercises for fear of injury. My recommendation? Don’t allow such concerns to overwhelm you and prevent you from getting started.

Once you’re walking on a regular basis, you can easily turn this activity into a high-intensity exercise simply by intermittently picking up the pace. Japanese researchers, who developed a walking program designed specifically for the elderly, have shown that a combination of gentle strolling and fast walking provide greater fitness benefits than walking at a steady pace.22,23

The program they developed consists of repeated intervals of three minutes of fast walking followed by three minutes of slow strolling. Completing five sets of these intervals, totaling 30 minutes of walking, at least three times a week, led to significant improvements in aerobic fitness, leg strength and blood pressure.

Everyone Can Benefit From Walking More Each Day

As mentioned, walking can be an excellent entry into higher intensity training, regardless of your age and fitness level. Personally, I typically take an hourlong walk on the beach every day that I’m home. As you’ve probably heard by now, chronic sitting is the new smoking — it actually has a mortality rate similar to this toxic habit.24 It even raises your risk of lung cancer by over 50 percent. What’s worse, it raises your risk of disease and early death independently of your fitness and other healthy lifestyle habits.

According to Dr. James Levine, codirector of Obesity Solutions at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and Arizona State University, you need at least 10 minutes of movement for every hour you sit down. I recommend limiting your sitting to less than three hours a day, and to make it a point to walk more every day. I suggest aiming for about 10,000 steps per day, over and above any other fitness routine you may have.

fitness tracker can be a very helpful tool to monitor your progress and ensure you’re hitting your mark. Just be sure that you are using one that does not have Bluetooth enabled (the Oura ring and Apple Watch are the two that I know of that allow you to turn off the Bluetooth). Tracking your steps can also show you how simple and seemingly minor changes to the way you move around at work can add up. For example, you can:

  • Walk across the hall to talk to a co-worker instead of sending an email
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Park your car further away from the entrance
  • Take a longer, roundabout way to your desk
  • Take a walk during your lunch hour (importantly, this habit has been shown to reduce work-related stress25)

Spiritual Self-Care 101: Setting Up a Sacred Space

Whether you have a daily spiritual practice or not, it’s always a great idea to set up an area within your home that is quite special to you and that not only encourages peace and calmness, but allows you to literally enter a sacred space within that touches on your Divine creative force. This place should be quiet, comfortable, free of electronics and allow you to connect to Source in whatever way works best for you.

For some people this is prayer while for others it is through meditation. An yet for some it is through personal expression such as art, i.e. painting or playing a musical instrument. Whatever invokes a feeling of magnificent connectedness and greatness that leaves us feeling alive and fulfilled is what we might be wise to put energy and focus into as often as possible. For when we can do what we love, we become love, and then…we remember we were love all along and live AS love itself.

Ideally the space you choose can contain items that are significant to your practice and what you intend to manifest such as vision boards, crystals, photos, affirmations, etc. or if the space is where you will paint for instance, then of course it would contain all of your panting supplies such as brushes and paints.

The key focus here is to pay attention to how the space feels. We not only want it to work best for functionality if it will be a working creative space, but also to invoke a sense of inspiration and encouragement so you are in a positive note while you jam out on that jazz sax!

A space used solely for meditation will perhaps be much simpler. All one needs here is a comfortable, quiet place to sit and be still. Ideally you will have a meditation stool or pillows you can sit on, but whatever works for you to keep your back as straight as possible, but allowing you to sit in comfort for extended periods of time. Sitting with our backs straight allow for energy to flow precisely where it needs to go and also assists us with doing our meditation breathing exercises properly.

I actually have a few meditation spaces in my home, one outdoors and one indoors, but both are adorned with quartz, rose quartz and amethyst crystals. My outdoor space has two large pink Himalaya salt candles, plants and cacti, and a comfy mini futon that faces the gorgeous morning Arizona sunrise every day. My indoor space has Buddha statues, rocks I’ve collected from Sedona vortexes, notes with positive messages and affirmations, incense and candles a mini CD player so I can jam my favorite binaural beat meditation music while connecting to the Divine. 🙂

I’ve come to learn that what matters most about your sacred space is that it speak to you, and you may even come to find that you multi-task in this space in that you may not only meditate, but also write, draw, make music, etc. Whatever you are into, what is important is that it works for YOU and is a space that you are most comfortable in. I like to visualize it to be something like a proverbial bird’s nest – haha

Having your own space is vital to inner peace and creative expression of each and every one of us as an individual. Many parents can try this as a fun project with their children and will find that the giving of a space all their own to a child will ultimately result in an appreciation expressed in a happy, creative kid who feels they can always go be exactly who they want to be in their sacred space. This will give them confidence and strength to bring all of who they are out into the world.

If it sounds like too much work right now to create this kind of space in our outside of your home or you are feeling like you simply don’t have the time; well then you’d be the type of person that needs a space like this the most….honestly and sincerely. So, I’d suggest starting very small and begin by creating a sacred space within your own mind.

What I mean is, for even 5 minutes a day, take the time for positive self-talk and focus on your own wants, dreams and desires in life. Tell yourself something you like about yourself and something you are looking forward to. Speak of things you are grateful for in life; the focus is to invoke a sense of love and connectedness, to yourself and everything.

Once we can master the art of spiritual self-care and are actively creating a sacred space within, we will ultimately see the benefit of having one in our everyday lives. Have a space like this all our own is like a little reflective sanctuary where we can bounce back our ideas, our gifts, our dreams, and if we’re committed, what we plan to give back to world by showing up more fully as our most authentic selves.

BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth Answers Tough Questions: Focus on COVID-19 & 5G-Summary with Solutions[1]

By Robert G. O’Leary, JD, BARA

This article follows up on my first article, “BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth Answers Tough Questions: Focus on 5G“, and will expand on the discussion I had on a radio show, called “Business Changers”, in which I commented on 5G and its health effects from a BioAcoustic Biological[2] and Soundhealth perspective, at this link.

The host, Sarah Westall, felt that my first article, released on April 17, 2019 at Conscious Life News and around the same time at Nexus News,  was somewhat prophetic in predicting some of the alleged effects that 5G would have on the world. She, like the rest of us, had noted that numerous bloggers/vloggers were speculating that 5G has somehow played a role in making people sick in the midst of the pandemic. These individuals offered up numerous reasons for their belief, such as:

  • A video on social media, purporting to show people collapsing on certain streets in China;
  • One or more doctors (in NY and elsewhere) becoming alarmed that certain alleged COVID-19 patients were suffering from respiratory issues of hypoxemia/hypoxia, and how these patients were presenting with lung symptomology similar to a patient being taken to the top of Mt. Everest and suddenly back again;
  • 5G antennae going up next to schools, after being inexplicably categorized as “essential work” during the global shutdown and quarantine period; and
  • U.S. installation site layouts appearing curiously similar to the number, location, and concentration of major COVID-19 outbreaks.

Speculation about 5G and its alleged connection to COVID-19 has become rampant in social media. If there is no connection, it would seem that this story would do no harm, and would soon fade away. Yet it persists in many people’s minds.

In this age of so-called social fake media, social media platforms have been demonetized and/or have seen their traffic diminish under a platform’s algorithms. Nowadays even the mention of 5G in the context of COVID-19, has resulted in videos being outright removed. YouTube’s top official has said as much recently in the article, “YouTube will delete videos that falsely link 5G to the novel coronavirus after reports of people setting phone masts on fire.”

While the world is dealing with the pandemic right now, most of our media are preoccupied with the crisis and the state and federal government’s response to it. President Trump has people on his task force: most prominently Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, who have been entrusted with shaping the approach and response to the pandemic. They and certain supporting players, like Bill Gates, the World Health Organization, and the CDC, are also looked upon to suggest how the American and world population should act and react during this unprecedented moment in time.

Most of this country and much of the world are just beginning the process of coming out of shelter-in-place orders right now. This approach to a pandemic is unprecedented. The concomitant isolation has been difficult for everyone, and the fear of the unknown as well as the fear engendered by our media (some have called it “fear porn”) have created a cult of personality of sorts around people like Fauci and Birx, and the WHO, et al. See Imperial College UK COVID-19 numbers don’t seem to add up” and “Media’s Covid-19 Fear Mongering Disastrous for America

Fauci, Birx, et al are good at stating the problem, but offer little in the way of solutions. Their predictions of high rates of infection and potential death have created a lot of fear, and their solutions offer little comfort. Often these predictions are later shown to be incorrect and based on flawed data). It is frankly disempowering to offer us social distancing, quarantines, and shutdowns, while off in the distance – a year and a half to 2 years away – we may somehow be saved by a vaccine.

Recently, Fauci has suggested we may have eight (8) candidate vaccines ready by fall 2020, stirring concerns of danger from inadequately tested and untried vaccines which could be more dangerous and deadly than the virus itself. The problem is these trials bypass animal studies and likely certain other steps that require typical new vaccines to take five (5) years to get safely tested. SeeWhy a coronavirus vaccine could take way longer than a year” In any case, Gates and Fauci have forebodingly predicted that we will not likely be back to “normal” till at least 2022.

With these current events in the background, I appeared on Ms. Westall’s show in the hope of offering some answers and perspective. As preparation, I did more research about how the resonant frequency of 5G might impact the human body, and referred to Sharry Edwards’ recent articles about COVID-19 – discussing how its frequency equivalents (hereinafter “FEs”)[3] are influencing us.

What are the known effects of COVID-19 and what are the possible BioAcoustic Soundhealth Correlations with these symptoms?

Let’s take the above COVID-19 symptoms one by one and see why each may be showing up from a BioAcoustic Biology perspective:

Shortness of breath: The FE for COVID-19 resonates with carbon monoxide. This toxin’s symptoms include shortness of breath. It also resonates near an anti-depression medication, called Deprenyl, for which trouble breathing is a symptom.  COVID-19’s FETM is also near to that of brevetoxin, a toxin made by dinoflagellates that can contaminate shellfish. One of the symptoms, bronchospasm, can cause difficulty with breathing.

Cough: Brevetoxin can cause bronchospasm, dyspnea, and coughing. Also, appearing close to the COVID-19 FE are Influenza C, a strain of Influenza A, and some rhinovirus strains, which can cause ear/nose/throat congestion and irritation, and a cough. Besides, this is primarily a coronavirus (aside from the MERS and HIV codes spliced into it) and coronaviruses, like the common cold, can cause the same kind of congestion and cough.

Fever: Coronaviruses generally can also cause a fever. A fever may also be caused by the above types of influenza, and rhinoviruses.

Chills and Repeated shaking with chills: Chills can accompany a fever, so this could be caused by the same types of sickness. The same might be said of the repeated shaking. Brevetoxin can also cause chills along with sweating.

Muscle pain: Likewise muscle pain can accompany a cold, flu or rhinovirus, as can ingestion of Deprenyl or inhalation of carbon monoxide.

Headache: A headache can occur along with a flu or rhinovirus, or the common cold. Deprenyl, brevetoxin, and carbon monoxide can likewise have this symptom.

Sore throat: Because a cold, flu or rhinovirus can generate a good amount of mucus, a sore throat can result. Brevetoxin, Deprenyl, and carbon monoxide can also irritate the throat. The industrial chemical, acrolein, can cause ear nose, and throat irritation as well.

New loss of taste or smell: Deprenyl can cause a loss of taste sensation. Congestion from a flu, cold, or rhinovirus also can. The blood pressure and ace inhibitor medication, called Captopril, can cause a diminished sense of taste or a bitter or salty taste in the mouth.

Trouble breathing: Both Deprenyl and carbon monoxide can cause trouble breathing.

Persistent Pain or pressure in the chest: Carbon monoxide can cause pain in the chest.

New confusion or inability to arouse: Confusion can occur with carbon monoxide poisoning. Loss of consciousness can occur in extreme cases. Also, Deprenyl (i.e., trouble concentrating)

Bluish lips or face: Carbon monoxide may cause a bluish mouth or lips.

Additional possible symptoms:

Metallic taste:  Phenyldichloroarsine, a World War I chemical warfare agent may cause a metallic or garlic taste, and the hormone, Relaxin, can cause a metallic taste, too;

Kawasaki Disease-like Symptoms:

Fever:                               Fever be caused by the above types of influenzae and rhinoviruses, and carbon monoxide;

Blotchy rash:                    Histamine;

Abdominal pain:              Histamine;

Gastrointestinal issues:    Histamine;

Cardiac inflammation:      The bioflavonoid, Quercitin, which has been shown in some studies to be heart protective and to interrupt the biological pathway leading to heart inflammation;

Vomiting:                          Histamine, Deprenyl, brevetoxin, and carbon monoxide;

Diarrhea:                           Histamine, Deprenyl, brevetoxin, and carbon monoxide;

See Carbon_monoxide_poisoning,  “Common Cold”, “Blue Lips”, “Case Definition: Brevetoxin”, “Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Symptoms & Signs”, “Selegeline Side Effects”, “21 Symptoms of Histamine Intolerance and Foods to Avoid” & “How the Flavonoid Quercetin Benefits Your Heart Health

The FE of a biochemical, called cytotoxic T-lymphocyte, is also within the range of the COVID-19 FE. This one inhibits activation of T-cells, a part of the immune system. Cytotoxic T-cells are responsible for destroying cells taken over by a virus or certain bacteria. Inhibition of this cell function is understood to make it even more difficult for the body to battle a pathogen, and thereby help it address the above symptoms. SeeT-cell-mediated Cytotoxicity” For more information about the Bioacoustics Biology analysis of COVID-19, see “Coronavirus – A Novel Perspective with Proof”

What are the known and alleged effects of 5G, as well as 3G & 4G, and what are the possible BioAcoustic Soundhealth Correlations with these symptoms?

I will show the alleged symptoms in the left column, and in the right column show the biochemical that has a FE which might be processed by the body in such a way that the stated symptom may manifest:

Shortness of breath:                Oxygen deprivation; Iron excited by 60 GHz resonant energy such that oxygen cannot bind with it and create

                                                heme-iron molecule;

Passing out:                             Oxygen deprivation; Iron excited by 60 GHz resonant energy such that oxygen cannot bind with it and create

                                                heme-iron molecule;

Blood clotting:                         The author has found no correlation

                                                  potentially carcinogenic”;

Foggy thinking:                         The author has found no correlation;

Eye pain:                                    The energy in the dilator of the eye is excited by 60 GHz and can cause additional muscle tightness                                                     or inflammation in the muscle;

Headache:                                   Deprenyl, brevetoxin, and carbon monoxide; can occur along with a flu, rhinovirus, or the

                                                    common cold, and it can also occur due to this FE’s influence on the temporalis muscle because too much

                                                    energy in this muscle can cause inflammation and a headache;

See “The Dangers Of 5G – 11 Reasons To Be Concerned“, “BioAcoustic Biology and Soundhealth Answers Tough Questions: Focus on 5G”, “Kawasaki Disease From COVID-19 in Kids: How Common”, “Case Definition: Brevetoxin”, “Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Symptoms & Signs”, Selegeline Side Effects, and “21 Symptoms of Histamine Intolerance and Foods to Avoid

So what can we say about the debate over 5G’s alleged role vis-à-vis COVID-19? We can see a great deal of symptomatic overlap between the two phenomena. The only substantive difference is that the excitatory effect on hemi-iron belongs to 5G exclusively, and that the carbon monoxide effect belongs to COVID-19’s FE, exclusively. Because both agents affect our ability to breathe, it would be easy to confuse the symptoms of one for the other. Otherwise the frequency equivalents overlap and will likely compound or intensify the current alleged COVID-19 symptoms.

Is it possible that 5G’s alleged harms could be hidden under the cover of the pandemic? I would say, “Yes” because of what we see going on bioacoustically. This is concerning because Dr. Fauci and others allege that a second wave could very well occur in the fall of 2020. If by that time, more 5G antennae are operational, in more terrestrial locations and in the skies above us, the symptoms may appear to become more severe. Regrettably, this additional severity may be used as a justification for mandatory vaccination with potentially untested and dangerous new vaccines.

Could those in control of Big Pharma and Big Tech have intentionally created a virus with an FE similar to 5G, on purpose? It is possible. The motive and means are there, as:

  1. Bill Gates is just now finishing the “Decade of the Vaccine”;
  2. He has investments in COVID testing kits, antibody-testing kits, several candidate vaccines, vaccine tracking mechanisms, as well as 5G;
  3. He is the 1st or 2nd biggest backer of the WHO;
  4. He is a big investor in several media companies, allowing him to shape the narrative around the pandemic and vaccines;
  5. He has relationships with the military and silicon valley from which he could obtain obscure techniques and technologies; and
  6. Fauci has been with him along the way, on his Decade… leadership council, illegally funding the gain of function testing, co-investing in and fast-tracking the vaccine candidate of an untested vaccine company, Moderna, and giving immunity to Gates and others “fighting” COVID-19. See Fauci and COVID-19 Priorities: Therapeutics Now or Vaccines Later?”

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. stated recently in an interview with Brian Rose that vaccines bring in $60 billion per year for the pharmaceutical industry, and that the medicines produced to deal with the side effects from these vaccines earns them another $100 billion dollars annually. As 5G is intended to become the telecommunications norm for some time in the future, its ongoing influence could become the deceptive basis for yearly innoculations of a COVID-19 style vaccine. The additional profits for Big Pharma could become regular and astronomical in such a scenario.

Knowledge is power, and provides us with the ammunition to fight for an alternative future. The veil of secrets and lies has been lifted more and more in the last several years. The more we distribute and discuss the information in this article, the more chance we have to reach a critical mass of enlightenment at which meaningful change can occur.

The best gift we can give to ourselves and our children is truth, transparency, and clarity. They are not guinea pigs, cash cows, or sheep to be herded, poisoned, and slaughtered by moneyed interests that slink in the shadows or under cover of mainstream media sycophants providing them with well-coiffed and manufactured news pieces and alibis. We must not consent to being poisoned anymore!

These times are without a doubt stressful and uncertain, but we will get through them. Let’s fix our intention on more than just survival; fix it upon thrival. And as we ponder what this is doing, and may do, to our children in the years to come, remember…

–Don’t fail them, and don’t fail the future.—

What can you do right now? Sharry Edwards mentions in her article, the following:

  1. Go to SoundHealthPortal.com – CAMPAIGNS – CORONA CONFLICTS. Send us a vocal print to check your voice BioAcoustically for Coronavirus. The Coronavirus competes with Glutathione and Quercetin;
  2. Use either version of Le Ciel that we have provided on our web site, or on Sarah Westall’s web site – they were designed, and have been verified, to work with resistant pulmonary, respiratory and sinus infections. Find Le Ciel here;
  3. Use the recommended supplements that the Coronavirus shows to be in competition with – Reduced Glutathione and Quercetin;
  4. Use the Rife-like frequency of 158.4 or half of that 79.2 or both mixed. Use feedback equipment to verify compatibility;
  5. Download Jill Mattson’s Frequencies for Defense, made in collaboration with Sharry Edwards; and
  6. Begin our series of classes to learn how to BioAcoustically use frequencies to support normal form and function – by countervailing resistant pathogens. Find them here.

I would add that 5G at 60 GHz competes with the mineral selenium. You can choose to get it from food or supplemental sources in consultation with your doctor or nutritionist.

The Revolutionary Science of Aging and Longevity

https://youtu.be/C5XxJu77gYE?list=PL7YKya_R1ROuVM7MMPclKfZNPyQR9jlSK

By Dr. Joseph Mercola | mercola.com

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Two scientifically demonstrated benefits of fasting are the suppression of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and the activation of autophagy, both of which play a role in disease prevention and longevity
  • After the age of 30, extrapolations from animal studies suggest the longer you’re able to incorporate some form of regular fasting across your life span, the better
  • When added to a low-calorie diet and healthy lifestyle, NAD boosters such as nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) appear to have a magnifying effect, allowing you to maximize your benefits
  • Sirtuins are proteins that act as environmental stress sensors and are responsible for longevity. Activating sirtuins is one way to increase longevity in yeast and worms. One compound found to activate sirtuins is NAD. Another is resveratrol
  • Research led by David Sinclair, Ph.D., has demonstrated it’s possible to reprogram cells, restoring their original youthfulness, and in so doing, reversing blindness by rejuvenating the nerves in the retina

David Sinclair, Ph.D.,1 is a professor of genetics and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. Generally recognized as one of the thought leaders in the science of how to improve our life span and health span, Sinclair earned his Ph.D. in Sydney, Australia.

After working with Leonard Guarente at Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral researcher, he got his own lab at Harvard in 1999, where he’s been teaching aging biology and translational medicine ever since. Sinclair has also written a book, “Lifespan: Why We Age — and Why We Don’t Have To,” which is scheduled for publication on September 10, 2019.

Fasting is part of the longevity solution

Sinclair’s book covers several important strategies that can help slow down the biological clock, including calorie restriction and intermittent fasting. Two of the scientifically demonstrated benefits of fasting are the suppression of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and the activation of autophagy.

As noted by Sinclair, while fasting itself is not revolutionary, having roots dating back more than 5,000 years, what’s revolutionary “is the discovery of the biochemical pathways that underlie this protection against disease and aging.” Like me, he’s a fan of time-restricted eating, where he simply skips one meal (breakfast) each day.

“There are other diets that other people have found to be effective in terms of improving biology and biochemical markers,” Sinclair says. “One is the 5:2 diet … That one is also quite doable …

More extreme are those diets where you [fast] for a whole week every couple of months or every few months … My view is that that’s probably going to work the best if you can do it because it doesn’t just trigger the short-term pathways that we’ve been studying in my lab.

A week of fasting will really [trigger] the body to start consuming its own protein … That’s what autophagy is. It’s the consuming of biological material, which is typically a protein. In talking with people who’ve done these fasting regimens, after about three days, something different starts to kick in. People who try this tell me that they have a feeling of euphoria. They definitely get an added boost …

We’ve been studying in my lab for the last 20 years genes that respond to diet, to fasting and calorie restriction. The upshot of it is that our bodies respond to adversity or perceived adversity. They turn on these defensive pathways. It changes a bunch of genes that switch on to defend our bodies …

These defenses of the body are extremely good at protecting us against diseases — from diabetes to cancer, heart disease, even dementia and Alzheimer’s. These are things that modern medicine has struggled to combat. This seems to be a very simple way to get the body to fight those diseases.”

At what age should you start fasting?

As for when to start, animal studies suggest the younger you are when you start, the better. For humans, this would, of course, have to be done within reason. It would be downright foolhardy to put an infant on a fasting regimen, for example.

Teens and young adults in their 20s are also not candidates for fasting, Sinclair says, as “There’s still a lot going on in their bodies and their brains.” After the age of 30, however, extrapolations from animal studies suggest the longer you’re able to incorporate some form of regular fasting across your life span, the better.

As a general rule, intermittent fasting involves fasting for 12 to 16 hours a day, which will typically necessitate eliminating either breakfast or dinner. If you eat dinner, you’ll want to make sure you do it early enough — at least three hours before bedtime. I try to eat my last meal three to six hours before bed.

One of the reasons for this advice is because avoiding late-night eating will increase your nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) levels, which are important for a variety of bodily functions.

Importantly, it will also reduce nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH), which is essentially the true cellular battery of your cell and has the reductive potential to recharge your antioxidants. The largest consumer of NADPH is the creation of fatty acids.

If you’re eating close to bedtime, then you’re not going to be able to use the NADPH to burn those calories as energy. Instead, they must be stored in some way. To store them, you have to create fat, so you’re basically radically lowering your NADPH levels when you eat late at night because they are being consumed to store your extra calories by creating fat.

“I tend to snack at night, so it’s my downfall,” Sinclair says, “but yes, to be able to have that fast overnight, that’ll boost your NAD and NADPH levels. These are all good things. They turn on the enzymes that we study called sirtuins. They need NAD to function. You can use the whole night to ostensibly repair your body and protect it from what happens during the day.”

Everything in moderation

An important part of Sinclair’s book delves into the balance between anabolism — the building of muscle tissue — and catabolism, the tearing down and repair of muscle. Counterintuitively, when you fast, growth hormone levels increase, even though there are no nutrients available. Sinclair explains:

“Insulin-like growth hormone (IGF-1) and growth hormone itself, in the short run, don’t seem to be healthy, at least in animal studies. Nir Barzilai of Albert Einstein College of Medicine has studied centenarian families. What he’s found, in particular [in regard] to IGF-1, is that some families can have high levels of IGF-1 but still live a long time.

The reason for that is that they don’t have the IGF-1 receptor as active … [I]f you’re not responding to these hormones, it doesn’t really matter how much your body produces. It’ll still have an effect that mimics the benefits you want. It’s interesting actually that the growth hormone is stimulated by fasting … I’m unaware of exactly why.

But we know that fasting doesn’t lead to bigger animals. It’s actually the opposite. It could be — now I’m just speculating, but I think it’s worth discussing and thinking about — that the short-term bursts of hormones may help the body recover from injury. But those little spikes don’t last long so that you’re not having any downsides …

If I was to summarize everything that I’ve learned over the last 30 years: ‘Everything in moderation, and don’t do anything too consistently.’ … Your body needs to be primed and then allowed to relax; challenged and then allowed to relax.

These diets and these growth hormone spikes, I think they’re good. You just don’t want them on all the time, because then your body doesn’t have a chance to recover and you don’t get the long-term benefits.”

The case for exercising in a fasted state

A tangent to this is the idea that the ideal time to do strength training is right before you have your first meal after a 16- or 18-hour fast. In other words, exercising while still fasting.

The reason for this is because your growth hormone is already activated, allowing you to reap maximum benefit from the anabolic stress of the exercise, which increases peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator 1-alpha (PGC-1α) and mitochondrial biogenesis. As noted by Sinclair, this is “the cutting edge of thinking.”

“Again, in the full disclaimer, we’re discussing the cutting edge of science, so we don’t fully know the answers to this. But what makes sense to me is that we don’t want too much protein in our lives. We don’t want to eat a steak at every meal.

Because what we’ve learned through the work of David Sabatini and many others in the field is that … inhibiting the mTOR pathway by having a lack of certain amino acids is healthy and does lengthen lifespan in animals.

But does that mean that you shouldn’t eat protein? Absolutely not. There are times when eating proteins is important. Same for testosterone. Same for growth hormone. Now we’re getting into the nitty-gritty. If you are pulsing these things, when do you do them together and when do you do them apart?

Let me talk about what I do personally because that’s actually a better way to approach the discussion. If I’m going to have a steak — I try to be a vegetarian — but let’s say I’m going to have a protein shake, I’m going to do that just before or just after I’ve exercised.

But then I’m also going to have a period in the week where I don’t have a lot of protein … I think … that a little bit of stress every day and a lot of stress once in a while is a great combo.”

The importance of NAD boosters

In his book, Sinclair also discusses the importance of glycine, the shortest and most common amino acid in your body. In the past, people got plenty of glycine from eating bone broth and connective tissue, but most people today are not in the habit of eating homemade bone broth.

As a result, many are not getting enough. Unfortunately, glycine is all the more important these days, as our fructose consumption has dramatically increased. Sinclair explains:

“This is a big question in my field. Just to take a step back, my field and a lot of what my book is about are [about how] to trick the body into [thinking it’s] hungry and having exercise. One of the molecules that do that is NAD.

NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and we have it in our body. As we exercise and get hungry, it goes up. As we get older, it goes down. It’s needed for life. It’s also needed for turning on these defensive enzymes called sirtuins.

Now, to raise NAD levels, what we’ve done in my lab to mice for the last decade is we give them precursors to NAD. We give them molecules like nicotinamide riboside, or NR, or nicotinamide mononucleotide, also known as NMN …

When times are tough, we’re hungry or we’ve exercised, NAD levels will go up and turn on these defenses. That’s why when you take a molecule like NMN … what we think is happening is that you’re tricking your body into thinking that it’s [had] exercise or that it’s hungry because the NAD levels will go up.

So, you get the protective benefits … without actually having to necessarily exercise or diet … NMN is what I take each day. I take a gram of it. The thing with NMN is that it has this nicotinamide group on it. It hangs off the main part of the chemical and it’s the first bond to break. We see in animals and even in humans that the levels of nicotinamide go up quite rapidly after taking NMN or NR.

Too high a level of nicotinamide is not good, in part because the nicotinamide gets excreted through the kidneys. That happens because it becomes methylated into methyl nicotinamide. Methyl nicotinamide had been used for years as a marker of all sorts of things …

But the concern … is, ‘Is this drain of methyl nicotinamide a problem?’ The methyl groups are needed for the body. We need methyl for a whole range of things, including antioxidants. As a precaution, I take trimethylglycine so that I continue to give my body a source of methyl groups …

I take it as a precaution because I know that trimethylglycine is not going to hurt me … The other thing is trimethylglycine, also known as betaine, is very good for [human cells], including protecting them against stress. I don’t see any downside … The upside is that I’m preventing my body from being drained of methyl groups.”

None of this is to say you’ll be able to simply take a supplement or two and live a long life while eating junk food and being inactive. They can improve your condition if you’re overweight and don’t exercise, but they’re not a panacea or replacement for a healthy diet and lifestyle.

However, when added to a low-calorie diet and healthy lifestyle, NAD boosters such as NR and NMN do appear to have a magnifying effect, allowing you to really maximize your benefits.

There are other NAD boosters beside NR and NMN, and open questions regarding methods of administration of NR and NMN that may influence their efficacy. All of that is discussed in the interview so, for more details, please listen to it in its entirety, or read through the transcript. I go into detail as to why I believe using the NAD+ molecule itself is likely a far better strategy than using precursors. It is what I am currently doing for my own program.

The theory of xenohormesis

Sirtuins, which much of Sinclair’s studies are focused on, are proteins that act as environmental stress sensors and are responsible for longevity. In simple terms, you could refer to them as longevity proteins. Evidence suggests sirtuins work by suppressing DNA expression. As explained by Sinclair, activating sirtuins is one way to increase longevity in yeast and worms.

One compound found to activate sirtuins is resveratrol. However, once activated, sirtuins require NAD+ as a co-enzyme, and if it isn’t available, it won’t work. Sinclair and his team screened about 18,000 compounds to identify activators, and found you need the SIRT1 gene for it to work — it’s not just an antioxidant effect.

“We published 21 activators in that first paper in the Nature journal, 2003. Resveratrol was the best one we had at the time. It got the most attention because the red wine story was pretty funny and interesting to the media. But there were others that were very close to resveratrol in structure and potency.

Quercetin and fisetin are plant molecules as well. They’re all produced in response to stress … dehydration or ultraviolet (UV) light. They seem to have benefits on organisms [that] consume them.

Interestingly, what has later been discovered, though rarely acknowledged, is that these same molecules work on killing senescent cells … the ‘zombie cells’ that accumulate in your body and cause havoc. Now, others have shown that quercetin … have senolytic properties, same with fisetin. But what’s not recognized typically, or admitted, is that these molecules were discovered 15 years ago to also be SIRT1 activators …

The hypothesis Dr. Konrad Howitz and I came up with, which we published in Cell [in] 2005 … is called xenohormesis. It’s the idea that we’ve evolved to sense our environment, and molecules produced by plants and bacteria in our environment when they’re stressed.

If we consume those or put them on our skin, for example, our bodies will recognize those. We’ve evolved to sense our world around us. That’s a very good way of getting a heads up if your plants are running out of nutrients or the water table is drying up …

That can explain why so many molecules from the plant world have given rise to medicines and why some molecules, like resveratrol and quercetin, fisetin, even aspirin, have remarkable health benefits and target many different enzymes in the body that seems to be well beyond what coincidence could explain …

It’s thought that a little bit of heat, a little bit of cold, a little bit of hunger, some exercise, some hypoxia, lack of oxygen in your body, these are all ways of activating these defense pathways … such as sirtuins … the mTOR, which lower amino acids, particularly leucine and arginine, and the AMPK pathway … these are the main three defensive pathways. There are others.

But what’s downstream of these pathways are things like heat-shock proteins and transcription factors that turn on DNA repair enzymes … Here’s the good news: We used to think we had to understand everything those sensors do to be able to understand aging and be able to live longer.

But what I’ve been arguing for many years now is that we don’t need to fully know what they do … As long as we can find the right nodes in the cell, to turn them on in the right ratios at the right time, the body has evolved to take care of the rest.

We’re getting to the point … where we know what these nodes are. We have the tools to tweak them. We can also change them naturally by fasting and exercising. We can change them with molecules that we can ingest or inject. But now, the cutting-edge is, when do you apply them, how much and in what combinations? That’s really what people like myself … are onto right now.”

The importance of DNA repair

Another strategy for increasing NAD+ is to avoid things that use it up, such as exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs). One of the primary DNA repair enzymes inside your cells is poly-ADP ribose polymerase (PARP). PARP repairs single- and double-stranded DNA breaks and, in so doing, it will use up 100 to 150 NAD molecules for each break.

The more DNA breaks you have, the more NAD is being used up in the repair process. EMF exposure activates PARP and decreases NAD. So, by limiting EMF exposure, you can, by default, increase your NAD, simply because you’re not activating PARP as much.

“PARP enzymes are DNA-repair protein. The problem is when you hyperactivate this protein … There are actually more than 14 different PARPs. They do drain NAD quite effectively. In fact, in my lab, we’ve discovered another PARP that, when you have inflammation, drains NAD as well. It does make sense to slow them down … and in some cases, inhibit … their overuse of NAD,” Sinclair says.

Again, the best way to do that is by avoiding insults, such as EMFs, that activate the PARPs. “Then you get the benefits of low DNA damage and the benefits of high NAD,” Sinclair says, adding:

“Long story short, you want to activate PARP, but not too much … [Even] more interesting, I think, is how do you keep your levels of DNA double-strand breaks to a minimum? I think that’s one of the main keys to longevity.

There are two reasons: One is that double-strand breaks drain NAD. The second … is the idea that DNA double-strand breaks also disrupt the cell’s epigenome, the storage of the information that we get passed down from our mothers and fathers, mother and father, and the packaging of the DNA …

Basically, what happens is, if you have a broken DNA, proteins such as the sirtuins will leave their normal sites where they’re regulating genes and go help repair with PARP. But then they don’t all find their way back to where they came from. Some of them get lost and distracted.

Over time, what we see is that these proteins that are essential for maintaining cellular identity and function will be lost. We see that in yeast cells. Yeast cells get old because they’re moving between breaks and back again to genes.”

The epigenetic noise of aging

One of the most fascinating aspects of Sinclair’s book is the section on how to resolve some of this epigenetic damage, which accumulates through aging. Using the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) technique, certain transcription factors were spliced into blind mice, thereby restoring their vision through epigenetic resurrection. Sinclair explains:

“This is a sneak preview of what, hopefully, will be published later this year … We’ve discovered what we think is very strong evidence for … epigenetic noise as a cause of aging … What does that mean?

Let’s just quickly do a biology lesson for those who haven’t been in high school for a while … [The] epigenome is the organization of DNA. The epigenome tells the cell that they should turn on this gene to be a nerve cell, and in a liver cell … Cells inherit that [epigenetic] information just as much as they inherit their DNA.

In my book, what I’m proposing is that … genomic and epigenomic information are quite different. The genomic, the DNA, is ‘digital,’ which is very well-preserved and can last a long time. We know that DVDs last longer than cassette tapes.

The problem for the epigenome is that it’s ‘analog’ information. Anyone who’s had a cassette tape or a record knows that you can pretty easily scratch these or lose the information. You can [also] scratch a DVD and lose the information.

We think aging is similar to those scratches; that the information to be young again is still largely in our bodies. Our cells can access that information by metaphorically polishing the DVD … so the cell can read the right genes …

With that in mind, let me explain what we’ve discovered. We have a metaphorical way of scratching a mouse’s epigenome: We cut the DNA. We create these double-strand breaks [and] let the cell heal … so there’s no change to the digital information. But what we see is the process of proteins moving around and trying to repair that DNA.

It eventually introduces this epigenomic noise, and the genes that were once on, many of them get turned off. Those that were once off come on. Liver cells start to lose their identities. Skin cells start to lose their identity. The consequence, we think, is aging.

We will hopefully publish a paper that shows that if you create this noise in a mouse, it will go through accelerated aging … Second of all, we have mice now that we can change the rate of aging in … The third thing is if you can give an animal something, then you can, with that knowledge, take it away. That’s what we’ve done …

We wanted to reprogram cells. The genes that were … on, now they go back off and vice versa … What we find is that by using these three Yamanaka factors, you can find the original information in the cell that tells it to be young again.

Those genes switch, and the cell behaves like it’s young again. In the case of the retina, we have preliminary results [showing] we can restore eyesight by rejuvenating the nerves in the retina to be young again.”

More information

Eventually, Sinclair’s goal is to identify ways to reprogram all cells in the body, such that they not just act younger but literally are younger on a molecular level. “In my career, I’ve seen a lot of cool stuff. I haven’t seen anything this cool before,” he says. Clearly, there’s extraordinary potential to extend the human life span beyond the current 120 limits.

In his book, he proposes there’s no built-in biological requirement for death, and that, theoretically at least, you could live hundreds of years. To learn more about Sinclair’s research, and the science behind aging and the potential for reversing aging, be sure to pick up a copy of his book, “Lifespan: Why We Age — and Why We Don’t Have To.”

“We could see a world where people do choose to be genetically modified,” Sinclair says. “It’s their choice, right? I don’t think we can easily go in and modify children even though that’s now being done, unless it’s life-threatening, of course. But adults know that they should be able to have a choice if they’re safe and it’s approved, then they should be able to do that.

Maybe there will be a day when we are able to carry these Yamanaka genes in our body. And when we get sick or we have an injury … then we get an IV that turns on those genes for a month. We recover and rejuvenate, then we turn them off again until we need them again. That would be a pretty wild sci-fi future, but both signs are pointing to at least the biology being possible …

I hope people who read the book come away with a new view of what’s possible. Some people who have read it tell me that it’s changed the way they look at their own lives. That’s what I wanted to do. I think we forget how important this topic is, that we can do things right now to alter the course of our lives.”
