Editor's Note: This is a great article but doesn't go into WHY meditation helps with alzheimers. My belief is that alzheimers (and dementia) are caused by a general level of toxicity in the body. Parasites and worms, which normally live in your gut, start to increase in population as your health declines. Once these parasites and worms start to make their way to the brain, we start using words like dementia and alzheimer's.
Mindfulness is more than good for the soul.
According to a new study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, it can also help prevent those with mild cognitive impairment from developing Alzheimer’s.
The small pilot study explored how meditation can serve as an alternative to drugs in treating those with declining brain function. Meditation, researchers found, can help relieve chronic stress, which has been found to negatively impact the brain and increase the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s.
Have you ever unexpectedly found yourself with a snatch of time in which to steal a nap? You tried to settle into the chair or nook in which you found yourself, closed your eyes, and then . . . you just sat there, drowsy but awake. Despite feeling quite tired, you couldn’t fall asleep, and soon the time was up before you had gotten in so much as a wink. Talk about frustrating! Not only did you not get to nap, you didn’t do anything else either; if you weren’t going to fall asleep, you could have done something productive instead!
I've heard that if your body has a high level of metals, these EMF signals affect you more than a person with low levels of metals in their system. It's like the metals in your body absorb the EMF signals rather than letting them pass through. So if you are extremely sensitive I'd start with some chlorella & cilantro to try and detox / absorb / eliminate the heavy metals from your system. And if you have any parasites / viruses affecting your system I'd try and address those before detoxing the metals.
Oils from garlic and several other common herbs and medicinal plants show strong activity against the bacterium that causes Lyme disease, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. These oils may be especially useful in alleviating Lyme symptoms that persist despite standard antibiotic treatment, the study also suggests.
The study, published October 16 in the journal Antibiotics, included lab-dish tests of 35 essential oils -- oils that are pressed from plants or their fruits and contain the plant's main fragrance, or "essence." The Bloomberg School researchers found that 10 of these, including oils from garlic cloves, myrrh trees, thyme leaves, cinnamon bark, allspice berries and cumin seeds, showed strong killing activity against dormant and slow-growing "persister" forms of the Lyme disease bacterium.

When I first heard about CBD oil, my initial assumption was that it would be "like" non-alcoholic beer. Taking the THC out of marijuana is like taking the alcohol out of beer, right? Wrong!
I learned first-hand that CBD oil does have relaxing, calming effects. It's also an anti-inflammatory, meaning it can help your body heal from virtually anything. It can be taken orally (using a dropper) or by vaping it. I've tried it both ways. Vaping is generally more 'cost effective' because the CBD goes directly into your lungs and blood stream, rather than absorbing slowly through your gut.
I find it interesting that dental and vision are ‘not covered’ by traditional medical insurance. Is this by design? My perspective is that your teeth and eyes are connected and relevant to the health of your overall body. You’ve probably l heard the expression “don’t look a gift horse in the mouth” - you might not have heard that your teeth essentially are a fuse box to the rest of your body.
I’ve written previously called “Connecting the dots between stress, pain, cancer, and chronic illnesses” which is a discussion of how stress, pain, and disease affect your muscles, spine, skeletal structure.
"People who scored fewer than eight points on the test, he found, were twice as likely to die within the next six years compared with those who scored higher; those who scored three or fewer points were more than five times as likely to die within the same period compared with those who scored more than eight points."
Sit. Stand. Repeat. This little trick — a deceptively simple measure of flexibility and strength — can predict who will live longer and whose lives will be cut short, according to a study by Brazilian physician Claudio Gil Araujo. He uses the test with athletes, but he also uses it to lay out the stakes with patients: To live longer, they must get moving and maintain muscle and balance.
Araujo noticed long ago that many of his patients, particularly older people, had trouble with ordinary motions such as bending down to pick up something off the floor — difficulty indicative of a loss of flexibility. As people age, he knew, reduced muscle power and loss of balance can greatly increase the risk of dangerous falls.
This video demonstrates how to run a biofeedback "program" on yourself using the Spooky2 software. Note that this assumes that you have already run the actual biofeedback scan and it is saved as a program in your Spooky2 library.
