If you or someone you love have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, chances are you’ve been told that your body is attacking itself. Hearing this probably stripped you of hope that you can heal and left you feeling betrayed by your own body. Today there are countless mysterious diseases that have been labeled as autoimmune conditions. But the problem is that the concept of autoimmunity is inherently flawed and this mistaken theory only hurts you and your loved ones in the end. Surprised? When we believe our own bodies are attacking themselves, we are unknowingly hindering our healing process. Our immune systems can weaken in the absence of this truth: Your body never attacks itself. It’s always working for you and loves you unconditionally. It’s never been more critical for you and your loved ones to know and feel this truth in your heart. It will greatly support you and those you care about to heal.

Here is my battle plan of the moment.
lots of rest
I seem to be sleeping the same amount I normally sleep. But I am taking steps to make sure that it is super duper good sleep. I nearly always go to bed at 9:30, so I am making sure I don't eat anything after 6. Sometimes if I eat after six, something in my digestion will wake me up or keep me from getting to sleep.
I have canceled a lot of meetings. I do feel a bit tired thoughout the day now. I have continued with some meetings, but I might limit them to 30 or 45 minutes and tell the others to have low expectations of me. A lot of stuff gets tabled for a week.
One thing that has made things easier is that my email river seems to be less than half of what it normally is. So things are easier.
Rather than working a 12+ hour day, I think I am keeping it well under 7 hours a day. And those 7 hours are at a pretty easy pace. Around 3 in the afternoon, fred and I will settle in for about 2 hours of "television radiation therapy." Since nobody here has a television, we sit in my office and watch netflix like stuff.
I find that actually talking takes a bit out - so I am trying to type more and talk less.
10 degrees warmer
I am trying to emulate a fever. I am trying to be just on the edge of being sweaty. I am bundled up and the house temp is now 75 to 80. We had to run the rocket mass heater for an extra hour one day to get it this warm, but it has been very little wood to keep it this warm.
Regulated by the autonomic nervous system, inhaling oxygen is an unconscious process. Fortunately it’s an unconscious praxis, otherwise we simply wouldn’t have a break, as we’d have to deal with it incessantly. The amount of oxygen that we inhale through our breathing, influences the amount of energy that is released into our body cells. On a molecular level, this progresses via various chemical and physiological processes. Breathing is the easiest and most instrumental part of the autonomic nervous system to control and navigate. In fact, the way you breathe strongly affects the chemical and physiological activities in your body. Throughout the years, Wim Hof has developed special breathing exertions that keep his body in optimal condition and in complete control in the most extreme conditions. The breathing technique is first and foremost premised on inhaling deeply and exhaling without any use of force!
I've always found it interesting that in America, we de-worm our puppies but not our children. I've researched a drug called Ivermectin, which is available for livestock at your local Tractor Supply. I reached out to a naturopath who discussed Ivermectin on a podcast I had seen, and asked him for clarification. Below is his response - I haven't tried this yet but I'm wondering if anyone else has and can chime in:
I found Ivermectin at my local Tractor Supply but it's only available in "pour on" (the skin) type for cattle and "injectable" for sheep, if I recall correctly. In your video you made it seem like it was something humans can take orally. Can you please clarify? Are they all the same product and just labelled differently?
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.
"I think one of the things that really separates us from the high primates is that we’re tool builders. I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. It was not too proud a showing for the crown of creation. So, that didn’t look so good. But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts.
And that’s what a computer is to me. What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.” ~ Steve Jobs
