Unlocking the Secrets of the Microbiome

Modern technology is making it possible for medical scientists to analyze inhabitants of our innards that most people probably would rather not know about. But the resulting information could one day save your health or even your life.

I’m referring to the trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that inhabit virtually every body part, including those tissues once thought to be sterile. Together, they make up the human microbiome and represent what is perhaps the most promising yet challenging task of modern medicine: Determining the normal microscopic inhabitants of every organ and knowing how to restore the proper balance of organisms when it is disrupted.

Proof of principle, as scientists call it, has already been established for a sometimes devastating intestinal infection by the bacterium Clostridium difficile. This infection, popularly called C. diff, often occurs when potent antibiotics wipe out the normal bacterial inhabitants of the gut that otherwise keep it in check.

When all else fails to clear up a recurrent C. diff infection, treatment with a fecal transplant from a healthy gut presumed to contain bacteria that can suppress C. diff activity is often highly effective, with a cure rate in excess of 90 percent.

Under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health, a large team of scientists is now engaged in creating a “normal” microbiological road map for the following tissues: gastrointestinal tract, oral cavity, skin, airways, urogenital tract, blood and eye. The effort, called the Human Microbiome Project, takes advantage of new technology that can rapidly analyze large samples of genetic material, making it possible to identify the organisms present in these tissues….

The surprisingly charming science of your gut

Ever wonder how we poop? Learn about the gut — the system where digestion (and a whole lot more) happens — as doctor and author Giulia Enders takes us inside the complex, fascinating science behind it, including its connection to mental health. It turns out, looking closer at something we might shy away from can leave us feeling more fearless and appreciative of ourselves.

German Doctor Links Nano-aluminum, Glyphosate and Parasites to Chronic Disease – Develops Healing Protocol!

Nano-Aluminum, Glyphosate, and the Life Saving Work of Parasites

by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News

The bodies of Americans are saturated with very high levels of nano-aluminum. This provides ideal conditions for severe parasite infestation. These burdens are making us a country of chronically ill and cognitively impaired people.

This is part two of a series on nanotechnology and its effect on human health.

In the first article, I provided an overview of the safety concerns associated with manmade nanotechnology, and identified nano-aluminum as a serious threat to our health. The lack of safety studies on most forms of nanotechnology makes it hard to assess and rank the long-term risks posed by the thousands of nanosized ingredients that are being used in food, cosmetics, consumer products, and industry/military applications. However, evidence is pointing to nano-aluminum as being an extremely dangerous nanotechnology.

The sickest people have the highest levels of nano-aluminum and parasites in their bodies, and when they are helped to detox their aluminum and control their parasites, they begin to heal from chronic illness. The presence of nano-aluminum goes hand-in-hand with the presence of parasites. Let’s start examining this relationship by looking at nano-aluminum.

The presence of nano-aluminum in our bodies cannot be measured through conventional lab tests. It requires sophisticated electron microscopic examination of samples, which strangely is not available in the United States. A doctor can’t just order a nano-aluminum test to check your status, because U.S. labs aren’t able or aren’t permitted to do this test.

Please use this link to read the first article in this series:

Nano-Toxicity: Are Nanoparticles in Food and Our Environment the New Health Epidemic?

The Source of Our Nano-Aluminum Exposure

As explained in the previous article, the primary source of our nano-aluminum contamination is the U.S. weather modification program. Mainstream media is encouraging us to believe that the spraying of nanoparticles of aluminum and other metals will retard global warming.

Evidence suggests that the spraying of nanoparticles in the upper atmosphere also creates a cloud of metal particles that is used by various military programs to reflect and direct high energy electromagnetic waves….

A Little More Kindness with Dr. Catherine Price

How to Treat Yourself With a Little More Kindness

By Dr. Catherine Price·

Do you ever feel like you can be your own worst enemy and wish it could be different?

You’re not alone, most people are plagued with a negative internal dialog at one time or another. Learn how to start treating yourself with a little more kindness. My husband’s grandmother was one of those women who became sweeter the older she got. Grandma Ruth baked pies from peaches that grew in her backyard and made biscuits from scratch. I can still hear the sound of her voice in my head: nurturing, gentle, filled with reassurance. It’s a voice that always brings me comfort and helps me feel loved when self-love seems far away.

Imagine the Voice of Someone Who Adores You

When plagued by negative thoughts, try speaking to yourself in a different voice, the voice of someone who loves you unconditionally. Would the person you love the most speak in such harsh tones?

Ruth’s voice has been in my head lately as I have been reflecting on how we speak to ourselves. I have been thinking about thinking: obsession, negative self-talk, worn out thought patterns. Our minds can get into grooves sometimes where we address ourselves hurtfully, even hatefully.

The more we are overtaken by negative thoughts, the more likely they are to proliferate. But what if we spoke to ourselves in a different voice? I tried addressing myself in the voice of my husband’s grandmother and was amazed at how much calmer I felt, how much easier it was to be gentle to myself. These moments of invoking the person who loves you plant the seeds of becoming that kind person yourself.

Find a Practitioner to Help Ease Your Obsessive Thinking

Acupuncture also offers an effective treatment to help with obsessive thinking. In Chinese Medicine, there are several channels of the body that can require attention when you suffer from persistent negative thoughts. Nurturing the Spleen Channel, for instance, can help reduce overthinking and obsession. Soothing the Liver Channel helps with self-loathing, and treating the Lung Channel helps clear sadness and self-pity. Discussing the valences of your thought patterns with your Acupuncturist can help assist in drafting a treatment plan that attends to your particular needs…..
