Don't Catch the Flu

"Another treatment that is surprisingly effective against upper respiratory infections is hydrogen peroxide.
"My patients have had remarkable results in curing the colds and flu within 12 to 14 hours when administering a few drops of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into each ear. You will hear some bubbling, which is completely normal, and possibly slight stinging.
"Wait until the bubbling and stinging subside (usually 5 to 10 minutes), then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear. A bottle of hydrogen peroxide in 3 percent solution is available at any drug store for a couple of dollars. It is simply amazing how many people respond to this simple, inexpensive treatment."

"Swine Flu is NOT the Problem -- It is the Vaccine that May Harm or Kill You.

"How safe is a vaccine that has been developed, “tested,” and shipped for mass distribution in a matter of weeks? The answer -- it isn't.

"Say NO to the Vaccine !!!

"According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most serious and fatal cases of H1N1 have occurred in people between the ages of 30 and 50, many of whom were already ill with disorders like asthma, heart problems, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and obesity.

"Cases of swine flu in healthy children have been mild in nature, with little or no medical intervention required. Informed parents, given a choice, will surely opt for a mild case of the flu over the potential health risks of an inadequately tested vaccine that can potentially cause long-term devastation of your child’s health, or worse.

What is the New German Medicine ?

created by Dr Hamer

It says:

"Emotional self-devaluation affects your cellular processes. ... We're sick today because we didn't finish something yesterday... or 50 years ago. It could be at birth, it could be in utero, it could be in our ancestors... Each part of your body is intrisically linked to a corresponding emotion or thought pattern."

Dr hamer found that all disease originates from emotions, which create noticeable changes in your brain, in areas corresponding with the afflicted area of your body.

Why Raw Food #3: Nutrients

Eating raw foods is a way to give your body some of the nutrition it desperately needs.
Many of us are at least slightly overweight, and even the morbidly obese are starving for essential proteins and amino acids. All the processed, cooked foods we eat give us only a small percentage of what we need. Consequently, we eat and eat and yet we’re still not nourished. Psychologists try to tell us we’re eating to make up for an emptiness in our souls. Wrong! Our bodies are empty and trying to tell us so.

Eating raw foods is good for us on so many levels. It’s satisfying to eat them. They take more time to chew and swallow, so we don’t eat as fast. And we’re getting so much more in the way of nutrition by consuming fruits, vegetables, nuts and sprouts.

Cooking dramatically alters food nutrients

Cooking fruit and vegetables alter their nutritive quality. When foods go through the cooking process, this heating process destroys about one-third to one-half of the vitamins A and C, riboflavin and thiamin. Cooked fats are dramatically deteriorated. Processed foods, with their high-fat high-sodium content, are hard to digest. They take an enormous amount of the body’s energy to consume. When your body’s energy isn’t used up digesting all that fat, it’s available for YOU – for work, play, love, exercise – in other words, for LIFE.

Most raw food, like our bodies, is very perishable. When raw foods are exposed to temperatures above 118 degrees, they start to rapidly break down, just as our bodies would if we had a fever that high. One of the constituents of foods which can break down are enzymes. Enzymes help us digest our food. Enzymes are proteins though, and they have a very specific 3-dimensional structure in space. Once they are heated much above 118 degrees, this structure can change.
Once enzymes are exposed to heat, they are no longer able to provide the function for which they were designed. Cooked foods contribute to chronic illness, because their enzyme content is damaged and thus requires us to make our own enzymes to process the food. The digestion of cooked food uses valuable metabolic enzymes in order to help digest your food. Digestion of cooked food demands much more energy than the digestion of raw food. In general, raw food is so much more easily digested that it passes through the digestive tract in 1/2 to 1/3 of the time it takes for cooked food.

Enzyme-dead food makes you sick

Eating enzyme-dead foods places a burden on your pancreas and other organs and overworks them, which eventually exhausts these organs. Many people gradually impair their pancreas and progressively lose the ability to digest their food after a lifetime of ingesting processed foods.
It can take time to prepare raw foods however, that's why a juicer is an important addition to your kitchen once your start to be serious about raw foods. A good juicer can process an entire apple – seeds, stems, peel, pulp and all – and turn all that into a healthy, nutritious juice. As I mentioned in my previous post, a Champion juicer for instances extracts ALL of the nutrients from the vegetable or fruit, for you to absorb in a form that is very easily digested.
Buying apple juice is NOT the same thing!!! Don’t even look at apple juices or even ciders in the grocery store. Put that $2 or $3 aside and save up for a juicer. Buy bags of apples, orange, bananas, carrots and make your own juices to get everything from the fruit that you’d get by eating it raw.

Add variety

Now you’re getting juice that’s as fresh as the fruit or vegetable you made it from. No preservatives, no processing that strips most of the energy from the fruit. And think of all the delicious combinations you can make with the many tropical fruits that are available now in most grocery stores. You can customize your fruits and add non-typical ingredients like pumpkin to an orange juice. Now that’s a powerhouse of a juice!

You do want to be sure though, that you’re getting enough of the right kinds of nutrition. Eating raw foods doesn’t mean eating only the raw foods you like. Watermelon is good for you, but it’s not enough. The same with most foods. You’ll need to do a little research into which raw foods have the essential proteins, or what combinations of food you need to eat to get enough protein. Raw food eating is intended to nourish your body in a completely different way, but just being raw isn’t enough. You want to do this to be in balance, and you need to balance the raw foods you’re eating for proper nutrition.

One way to ensure that you are getting enough nutrients is to incorporate a new vegetable every week. Buy something you have never heard of, like a "leek", or "swiss chard". You will find a whole new world of tastes and textures open up to you. You will feel more and more deterred by fast food.

More recipes from my Champion juicer manual

Raw Breakfast Muesli
3-4 apples (pealed)
1 orange
2 spoonfuls raw oats (soaked in water all night)
1 spoonful raw wheat grains (soaked all night)
1/2 cup dates or figs
1/2 cup raw almonds, or any kind of nuts
Assemble the Champion juicer for homogenization, and pass the ingredients in the order indicated above. Add some raw sugar (no fructose syrup!) or honey to your taste. You can us different fruits, but always with an orange to avoid oxidzation. You can add cinnamon, ginger...

Almond Milk Carrot Juice
4-5 carrots (unpealed if organic, but thoroughly cleaned)
10 almonds (soaked all night - throw the water away)
Extract the juice of carrots, adding 2-3 almonds after each carrot. Finish with a carrot.
You'll have a carrot juice rich with all the nutrients of almonds. Eat at once.

Liquid salad
3 carrots
1/2 small onion
1 slice green pepper
1 cup squeezed spinach
1/2 lemon
1/4 cup cut parsley

'Zeitgeist, The Movie' and 'Zeitgeist: Addendum' were created as Not-for-Profit expressions to communicate what the author felt were highly important social understandings which most humans are generally not aware of. The first film focuses on suppressed historical & modern information about currently dominant social institutions, while also exploring what could be in store for humanity if the power structures at large continue their patterns of self-interest, corruption, and consolidation.

The second film, Zeitgeist: Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution. This solution is not based on politics, morality, laws, or any other "establishment" notions of human affairs, but rather on a modern, non-superstitious based understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The work advocates a new social system which is updated to present day knowledge, highly influenced by the life long work of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.

Juicing is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body.

In fact, juicing is the easiest way to start a raw food diet. For example, you can replace your breakfast with juices. Nearly anything can be juiced – fruits and vegetables, primarily. It is a form of concentrated nutrition.

Eating plenty of vegetables is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Vegetables provide the nutrients you need for more energy, healthy digestive support, and valuable assistance for virtually every cell in your body. Juicing is a sure-fire way to make sure you get enough of these nutrients every day.

Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are good sources of the traditional nutrients. Citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, etc.) provide a healthy portion of vitamin C. Carrot juice contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene. A number of green juices are a good source of vitamin E. Fruit juices are a good source of essential minerals like iron, copper, potassium, sodium, iodine, and magnesium, which are bound by the plant in a form that is most easily assimilated during digestion.

Choosing the right juicer

You will not want to use the common centrifuge juice extractor because the centrifuge action deteriorates the molecules in the vegetables and fruits. You need to use a PRESS extractor.

Here are two kinds of juicers that are best known:

Omega 1000 juicer – Makes good, virtually pulp-free juice. It’s a high-yield juicer but not good for juicing leafy greens. This juicer will not process wheatgrass.
Dr MERCOLA advertises the Omega 8003 Juicer:

Champion juicer – Better juice quality, pulpy with good nutritional value. Also a multi-purpose machine that grates and churns and can make nut butters. A good heavy-duty juicer, high volume, good for families. Does not process wheatgrass. You can find it in several websites on Google:

The Champion Juicer chews the fibers and breaks up the cells of vegetables and fruits. This give you more fiber, enzymes, vitamins and trace minerals. This all results in the darker, richer color of the juice and a sweeter, richer more full-bodied flavor. You can see and taste the difference.

I purchased a Champion juicer six years ago and I am still very glad I did that for my health. With it I press vegetables and fruits to extract juices and I very finely grate carrots and other root vegetables to make great coleslaws. I can also mash fruits into a homogenized puree for home sorbets and icecreams, and make gorgeous raw tomato or apple sauce, easy to use in recipes.

Of course, you will need to find very fresh vegetables to make your own home juices, and it is good to think about getting them from organic farming in order to avoid all those chemicals.
Rinsing with cool water will remove some surface pesticide residue, but not the pesticide that was absorbed into the produce as it was grown. Some of the most severely tainted types of produce are strawberries and bell peppers. Some of the least tainted are carrots and avocados. Although in a regular press juicer you do not need to remove the peels and seeds from your vegetables and fruit, you need to at least peel your produce if they do not come from organic farming.

Drinking plenty of fresh fruit juices daily will cleanse your system, make you feel completely energized and last but not least, you will look beautiful. People will wonder what you are doing differently!

Here are a few juice recipes from my own Champion user manual:

Celery and Lemon Cocktail Delight
2 peeled lemons
1 handful of tender celery leaves
1 apple
Juice the celery leaves, then the lemons and apples in the Champion Juicer.
Add water to make 1 quart. Serve with ice cubes.

Frozen Banana Desserts
4 ripe banana (cut in half and frozen without skins)
Assemble the Champion Juicer for homogenizing and homogenize the frozen bananas.
Serve at once. Makes 4 servings.

Power Boost
Drink this at least 15 minutes before eating.
1 tart organic apple, unpeeled, quartered and chopped
3-5 scrubbed, unpeeled organic carrots, chopped
2 clean stalks of organic kale, stems removed
Juice according to manufacturer's directions for your juicer. Drink juice immediately to avoid letting vitamins deteriorate. The colour may surprise you but it is pleasant tasting and loaded with nutrients.

Why Raw Food #2: pH

The second advantage of getting more of raw vegetables and fruit in your diet lies in the latter's alcaline properties, and this can be proven by measuring your urine pH each morning.

What is pH?

PH is the measurement of how acid or alkaline something is. The pH level scale runs from 1 to 14 with 1 serving as "very acidic" 7 being "neutral" and 14 being "very alkaline". The blood has a PH level. In fact, it goes to great lengths to maintain a pH level of 7.35 to 7.45, slightly alkaline.

Why is this important? Among many reasons why your body strives for this balance is your energy level to begin with. Introducing a large amount of raw vegetable and fruit is what gives the blood enough alcaline elements so that your body is balanced and your energy increases.

To find out what your general pH is, get pH paper strips from your drugstore and dip it in your first urine in the morning. The color will change according to urine pH. Compare it with the color samples on the cover of the paper strip box: you get a number that should not be below 7 nor over 8.

What does acid do?

Your body is a finely tuned machine. Like other types of machinery, the parts need to be kept running by fuel. The best fuel for your body is a custom mix, more alkaline than acid. What difference does this make?

It all starts in the bloodstream. Think of the bloodstream as a superhighway with stops all over the body. Red blood cells are the commuting traffic riding along the bloodstream in a hurry to get to work. These red blood cells each have a negative charge on them, and this keeps them from getting into fender benders and collisions in the bloodstream. When the negative charge is stripped away from the red blood cells, they cluster together and can cause gridlock and bottlenecks in the bloodstream. In short, the traffic in the bloodstream isn’t flowing as smoothly and it causes everything to slow down. If you’ve ever been stuck in freeway traffic you know how frustrating this is.

This stress on the body causes a domino effect, which eventually saps the energy away and makes you tired and sluggish. Acid is the culprit in the bloodstream traffic jam. When acid is introduced into the bloodstream it eats away at the negative charge that surrounds each red blood cell and causes all kinds of problems. How can you avoid this? The answer is quite simple and it starts with what you put in your stomach.

Why acid makes you fat

Red blood cells are created by the food that you eat. When the stomach works on digesting food, it leaves behind natural acidic waste. Your body eliminates this waste through your urine and sweat, but there comes a point when the waste build up is too great to eliminate.

What does your body do with all of the acidic waste that cannot be eliminated? It stores it in your body! The cells in your body are mostly alkaline, but the acid waste starts to attack and destroy them. A lot of energy is expelled keeping the waste from doing detrimental damage to your body, but this fight can only go on for so long. Eventually the build up is so great that the cells deteriorate and cause energy depletion, leaving the body open to opportunistic diseases.

Rawfood brings alkaline relief

Making changes to your diet - and especially introducing raw vegetables and fruits - is a huge step in reversing this breakdown of your body while boosting your energy level. The choices you make in what you eat will greatly determine how much of acidic waste gets stored in your body.

The more alkaline your food choices are the less of this waste will be accumulated in your body, tipping the balance in the favor of good health. By limiting your intake of acidic foods and increasing your intake of alkaline food you can increase your stamina, endurance, and the overall performance of your body machine.

Many books and websites show lists that outline which foods are alkaline and which ones are acidic. But in general, when eating raw food you make sure that what you get is more alcaline than acidic. Even if you eat lemon juice! This will surprise you: although they are acidic in your mouth, eating lemons is a sure way to re-alcalinize your body.


For 1 serving you need:
- 1 cup ripe papaya, peeled, seeded and cut in chunks
- 1/2 cup banana, peeled and cut in chunks
- A blender

Put fruit chunks in a blender and blend lightly until smooth.
Add your favourite spices: cinnamon, ginger... to taste.
Eat immediately.

You can create your own variations, adding:
- Fitted prunes, figs or raisins (soaked before blending).
- Raw tahini, raw almond butter, or any kind of raw nut butter you can find (make sure it is raw, meaning that the nuts have not been roasted before the crushing, and that the crushing was made in a refrigerated mill). However, the main problem with nuts is their acidic property; therefore, avoid this part if your PH is too acidic.

Why "Eat immediately"?

When the fruit is pealed and broken, or if you have just extracted the juice, the vitamins are exposed. They deteriorate in a very short time, from 10 minutes to half an hour according to the kind of vegetable or fruit, and even in the refrigerator. There can also be an oxydizing process of the whole, the taste and smell can change, etc. You want to get all the nutrients in their best state and quality.

Another important quick tip

If you mix raw and cooked foods at the same meal, EAT THE RAW FOOD FIRST, then the cooked dishes. Do not mix raw foods with cooked foods. Although people believe that everything get mixed up in the stomach, this is not true.

Why Raw Food #1: Enzymes

I already posted some general comments about why eat raw food. Today I am starting a series of practical « reasons why » that will include:

Why Raw Food #1: Enzymes
Why Raw Food #2: PH
Why Raw Food #3: Nutrient value and energy
Why Raw Food #4: Detox process
Why Raw Food #5: Organic food

Why Raw Food #1: Enzymes

What are enzymes?

The point in eating raw food is this: Raw foods contain enzymes. When we heating our food over 116°F, enzymes in food are destroyed - in fact, they start to degrade in as little as 102°F. All cooked food is devoid of enzymes, furthermore cooking food changes the molecular structure of the food and renders it toxic. Raw foods that are alive also have enormously higher nutrient values than cooked foods.
Enzymes are complex organic substances originating from living cells and capable of producing certain chemical changes in organic substances by catalytic action.

What do enzymes do in the body?

It is enzyme activity that accomplishes all biological work. When the food is cooked beyond 118°F (48°C), all of these naturally occurring enzymes are killed, and your body must manufacture its own digestive enzymes to do the job.

Enzyme researcher Dr. Edward Howell explains that when the body is busy digesting food, it cannot divert enough energy to continue processing the type of enzymes needed to do other tasks. There is conflict between the demands of your digestive system for a constant supply of digestive enzymes, and your body's needs for metabolic enzymes that are vital for cleansing, healing, and building.

Without an adequate supply of metabolic enzymes, over time, the body starts to show signs of suffering and fatigue, such as: indigestion, constipation, age spots, chronic fatigue, lethargy, wrinkles, skin problems, declining eyesight, poor memory, mood swings and irritability (leading to depression), allergies, brain fog, parasitis (candida), hypoglycemia (leading to diabetes), etc... the list is not closed. And finally, degenerative diseases silently install themselves.

Enzymes and digestion

The catalytic action of enzymes assists in the digestion and absorption of foods. If someone eats enzymeless food (such as "junk food" for instance) the body does not get maximum utilization of the food. This causes toxicity in the body, which turns into fat, clogs arteries, blocks the cleaning organs (kidneys, liver, skin...). Now do you understand why developed countries are getting plagued with overweight problems?

Raw food and the stomach's acid secretions

Cooked protein foods require large secretions of stomach acid (which is not healthful for several reasons - just think about the common "acid reflux" problem...). When we stop eating those foods our stomach doesn't produce much stomach acid. Many people who eat raw foods eat a low protein diet and are free from the stomach acid secretions and have much more energy and a lighter disposition.

Get living food

In living foods, the enzyme content is much higher. Raw, unsprouted nuts contain enzymes in a "dormant" state. To activate the enzymes contained in almonds, for example, soak them in water for as just 24 hours. Once the almonds begin to sprout, the enzymes become "active" and are then considered living.

Of course, this works solely if your almonds were raw from the beginning. Very often, so-called "raw" almonds sold in most food stores have been heated to kill molds and parasites. They appear "raw" and are not. But this is another question for future posts.

Different kinds of raw food diets

Some people consider that they are a raw food dieter from the moment they eat 75% of their food raw. But for others, raw food diet means EVERYTHING RAW.

Among those exclusive raw-eaters, there are specific categories, for example:
- Fruitarian: People who consume mostly fruits.
- Sproutarian: People who consume mostly sprouts.
- Juicearian: People who consume mostly fresh juice.

What do raw-foodists eat?

Raw-foodists eat all fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, sea vegetables, and other organic/natural foods that have not been processed. In some instances, there are special ways to prepare the foods: for example, most raw-foodists soak or sprout nuts, seeds and grains before consuming them.

What do raw-foodists drink?

They drink pure water (source water, or tap water that has been purified), freshly made juices (made with a personal juicer and consumed immediately). They can even drink coconut water or coconut milk from young coconuts.
Most drinks processed at a store (soda, bottled juices, coffee, alcohol) have been processed, including bottled organic juice sold in health food stores. None of them are really healthy from our "raw food" point of view here, and they always contain too much sugar for overweight or diabetic people. (I'll later have a line of posts on "juicing", how and why).

Where can I start? COLESLAW RECIPE

If you want to achieve optimal health, the best way to do that is to eat a high enzyme diet, and this means adding more and more raw food into your diet.
You can start by including a "coleslaw" at the beginning of each meal. Coleslaw is a salad made of finely chopped vegetables. For instance, finely chop the following ingredients:

- 3 carrots
- 1 small red beet
- 2 kale leaves
- 1 small onion
(You can also add sliced tomatoes, green peppers, cucumber, radishes, mushrooms - you can finely chop zucchini, celery root and stalks, ... unleash your creativity).

Mix them together.
Make your own dressing, according to your own taste, with:

- 3 teaspoons olive oil or flaxseed oil or hemp oil (raw and organic, from your health food store)
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar (you get two different tastes there),
- and/or Tamari sauce if you like it (the pure, organic stuff used by macrobiotic eaters, not the "soy sauce" junk full of chemicals)
- Finely chopped garlic (if you like it)
- Finely chopped fresh herbs: parsley, mint, oregano, ... to your taste.
- Half an avocado, mashed (in this case, you can use less oil).
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Ginger, or Cayenne pepper... to taste.

Try and have fun!

Eat a full serving of this at the beginning of a meal and I guarantee you will feel full already and you will want less cooked food to continue with your meal.

Attention: do not mix raw and cooked foods. Eat raw food first, then cooked food, and not the other way around. The enzymes from raw food at the beginning of the meal help with the digestion of cooked food that follows.

Give your body what it really CRAVES: enzymes and nutrients.

Raw Food and perfect health

Why try the raw food diet?
As I said in my previous post, cooking takes enzymes, nutrients and vitamins OUT of food: when you stop cooking food and start eating uncooked, nutrient-rich foods you automatically start feeding your body what it needs. A raw carrot has exponentially more nutrition than a cooked carrot.

Cut out digestive problems
Cooking also alters the chemistry of foods, often making them harder to digest. People have so many digestive problems because they are putting foods into their bodies in a form that we were not designed to absorb. Enzymes enhance the digestive process. High fiber, high water content fresh produce abolishes constipation of the bowels, cells and circulatory system. Obstructions are cleared and blood flow increases to each and every cell in the body. Enhanced blood flow is significant for two reasons: as mentioned above, blood delivers nutrients and oxygen to living cells, and carries away their toxic metabolites.

Keep away weight gain risk
Obesity is endemic in this country. The diet industry is more profitable than the oil companies. Why? Because the way we eat and prepare our food practically guarantees that we’ll overeat. Psychologists tell us that we overeat because our souls are hungry. But in reality, our bodies are hungry, even though we may feel full. When you start giving your body the nutrients it craves, overeating will cease.

Get more energy
Eating raw foods is a boost to your metabolism as well. You do not only take in the food with its nutrients and vitamins, you also take in the energy of the plant itself. They have accumulated energy from the sun, from the air, and possibly from the healthier atmosphere of an organically managed farm. You get all this when you eat the vegetables and plants in their fresh, raw state. Moreover, rather than spending energy to rid itself of toxins produced by cooking food, the body uses its energy to feed every cell, sending vitamins, fluids, enzymes and oxygen to make your body the efficient machine it was intended to be.

Cut out binge eating
You’ll naturally stop overeating because your body and brain will no longer be starving for the nutrients they need. A starving brain will trigger the thoughts that make you overeat. The brain and the rest of your body don’t need quantity; they need quality.

Raw Food Diet: returning to the source of food

The idea of Raw Food Diet has been around for some time. It is not just as a diet to lose weight (although it works very well), but a diet for a long and healthy life. Eating processed food has become such a big part of culture that we do not even think about what we are putting into our bodies, and how far we have come nutritionally from our ancestral, agrarian roots. And when there is health damage, we do not suspect our food as the origin; we go to the doctor for medical treatment of the symptoms.

A raw food diet means consuming food in its natural, unprocessed form. There are several common-sense rationales for why this is a good idea. Processing and cooking food can take so much of the basic nutritional value away. Think of some of the conventional wisdom you have heard about for years, such as: If you cook pasta just to the al dente (or medium) stage, it will have more calories, yes, but it will have more the nutritional value in it than if you cooked it to a well-done stage. Or you probably remember hearing not to peel carrots or potatoes too deeply, because most of the nutrients and values are just under the surface. That is as untrue as believing that the Earth is flat.

The raw food diet means eating unprocessed, uncooked, organic, whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, dried fruits, seaweeds, etc. For some people, it means a diet that is at least 75% uncooked. Other people believe that you cannot really heal your body if you do not eat 100% uncooked food, especially if you have a very serious or chronic disease.
Cooking does not only take out flavor and nutrition from vegetables and fruits. It takes all the ENZYMES away. Enzymes are vital elements in the whole functioning of our body. I'll return to that idea in another post. All enzymes die at a temperature of 101° F. Enzymes are alive elements in what you eat, they are what makes your body keep living on.

A raw food diet means eating more the way our ancient ancestors did, and we believe they were healthier and more fit. They cooked very little, and certainly did not cook or process fruits and vegetables. They ate them RAW. Their water was not from a tap; it was natural, spring water.
That is an idea that make sense, to think about how our bodies were meant to eat.

Raw Food Diet is a way of eating that is in harmony with the planet and in harmony with our own metabolisms. Our bodies were meant to work, and need to work to be efficient. That means exercise, certainly, but it also means eating natural, raw foods that are more easily digested than processed food because they still contain all the enzymes.

Swine Flu and Pig Farms

Now people are mentioning intensive pig farming (5,000 animals in each farm) as a possible cause for the current pig swine. This information is to be considered with caution of course.

Watch this video:

When I see all these poor animals packed together, I'm not surprised. Do we need to make animals live in such a poor state to feed our bodies?

Why Eat Raw Food: Rex's Curezone Post


I want to start a series of posts on Raw Food in this blog for a reason.

Last year, one of my closer friends died of pancreatic cancer. She was overweight and diabetic, she did not want to seriously diet, and she kept shifting physicians and medical centers. She did not want to do EFT. You can't force people. When her last physician put her on insulin shots, for an unknown reason he did not check on the state of her pancreas. 8 months later she was diagnosed with metastased pancreatic cancer. Then in 3 months she passed away.

Six years ago, I had found a series of posts in the CUREZONE forums, from a man who cured his wife's cancer by completely changing the family's lifestyle and food habits.

I have to publish this article here. I just can't let it sit in my backfiles CD. I hope the CUREZONE people won't say it's plagiarism. I say it is a lifebuoy sent out to people who may need the information. Those facts should not stay hidden.

Here it is. From the CUREZONE FORUMS page:

"One year ago, last April 2000, my wife age 42, was suffering with hip and groin pain, pains that brought her to tears during the night.

"After going to the doctor and receiving muscle relaxing drugs and mild pain killers, there was no change. It was thought that she was suffering from arthritis or early osteoporosis. She is a teacher of twenty years and before returning for the 2000-2001 school year, I insisted she have a complete physical. This was late August of 2000.

"After a mammogram they discovered a lump in her left breast less than one inch in diameter. A subsequent needle biopsy confirmed our worse fears, malignant Breast Cancer. No lymph nodes were swollen but it was recommended that a mastectomy followed by chemo and radiation be performed.

September 13th, I will never forget that date, as I spent the entire night on the Internet researching cancer. I found sites concerning raw and living foods, laetrile, gerson therapy, Hulda Clark, Johanna Budwig, Flax seed, household toxins, Rife technology, Zappers, Syncronometers, CoQ-10, MSN, MGN, and last but not least "life style changes".

"September 15th we engaged. Cleaned house, tossed all meats, dairy, banished processed foods, went raw, and no white poisons. I put my credit card to use on the internet and purchased numerous cancer modalities.

"We still did not feel safe. We sought second opinions, first a private oncologist that came very highly recommended, and secondly the University of Nebraska at Omaha. We were given the same recommendations. At this point we felt she had a very good chance for curbing the spread of the cancer, but she was still suffering immensely from pain in her hips, lower back, and groin.

"As a prerequisite of surgery, she was required to have a MRI and bone scan. We did that locally and to our total dismay, it was revealed to us that she had cancer in her bones. Not just a single bone, but throughout her skeleton. Her knees, hips, ileum, sternum, ribs, spine, essentially everything except her skull. A bone marrow sample was performed and confirmed the worst possible scenario, metastasized breast cancer to the bone, stage four.

"Date October 5th. I had, as a precaution, already made an appointment at Mayo Clinic, Rochester Minnesota, for what I though was going to be another of our second/second opinions concerning the lump and hence, called and confirmed. We packed for a three to four week stay, as instructed by Mayo, thinking there would be clinical studies or a modality that would give us hope.

"We arrived on a Monday, first appointment Tuesday at 6:45 AM and continued through the day with numerous exams including stereoscopic x-rays etc. At 5:30 P.M., the same day, we met with three specialists who had reviewed our tests.

"The verdict: get your affairs in order. Upon pressuring the lead specialist for a professional prognosis he stated, "You will be on morphine by January". Upon further prodding for the time involved, i.e. "How much time do we have" he said, "Two months to possibly a year".

"I asked the specialist, "How in the world can you call this breast cancer when she has been hurting in her hips since last April and the minute lump was found in September?". He must of realized how stern I was for answers as his reply was," Let me tell you how we developed nomenclature for cancers. The first cancer that is found is biopsied under a light microscope and a picture of the cell structure is sketched. Any subsequent cancers that appear are biopsied and if the cell structure is similar they are classified as a metastasized form of the primary cancer".

"I thought, what bunk, as I wanted proof as in nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry, cell studies, DNA analysis, or anything other than a non-artists rendition of cell shape.

"We headed back to Nebraska the next day in total shock. I was numb and hardly remember the trip. I did however remember one statement concerning the stereoscopic x-rays.

"The X-ray specialist said there appears to be healing sites in the ribs and sternum. I asked how he differentiated these from active cancer sites and he replied, "They appear as if osteoporosis has set in which is different than active cancer sites". This was the ray of hope that I believe got us back home.

"After arriving home I could not get the words "healing sites" out of my mind. We had made a drastic dietary\environmental change just 20 days prior to the Mayo visit and I knew something was happening.

"Let me explain, this was nothing intuitive or spiritual but just plain apparent, as I had lost 18 lbs with the diet change. Not only the weight loss confirmed my hypothesis, but the total digestive health I was now experiencing was nothing less than phenomenal.

"I was a 6-8 pill-a-day Xyantac user prior to the diet change, and now was acid reflux free! I could go on with details concerning our nutritional\life style changes but feel I have said enough tonight. This is a long posting and I apologize for my rambling. As this is my first posting to any newsgroup, I would appreciate responses. Thank you Deb (dear Sis) for breaking me out."


"PS My wife is more alive than ever, teaching, loving, mothering, and celebrating life!"

Rex continues:

"With the words "healing sites" fresh in my mind and the drastic improvement in my own health, I was fueled to journal and do more research. After studying the various regimes I concluded:

"1. Cancer could be caused by environmental poisons, parasites\parasitic residues, nutritional deficiencies, or stress related issues.

"2. A proactive approach has to be taken to contradict these causatives.

"3. The immune system has to be strengthened and the elimination system has to be in top working order.

"What is necessary to strengthen the immune system:

"1. Foods that have life energy, i.e. are alive.
If you can't plant them in soil, put them in water, or take cuttings from them, and they grow, they are dead. There are life energies we do not yet understand.

"2. Minerals and micronutrients. We all know how our soil has been mined and that essential nutrients are missing from our diet.

"What did we first do:

"1. Clean the bowel:

"***a: herbal fiberblend by AIM daily to this day.

"***b: Hulda Clark Bowel Cleanse, wormwood-cloves-Indian rhubarb every three weeks and still going

"2. Clean the kidneys:

"***a: watermelon and water flush-every three weeks and still going.

"3. Clean the liver:

"***a: Hulda Clark Epson salts-olive oil-pink grapefruit every three weeks and still going.

"4. Bought products from Mannitec (ambrotose-phytoaloe-plus), AIM(barleygreen-herbal fiberblend), bought a Champion juicer, 8X8oz carrot juice with 1 tblsp. Barley Green daily, make Essiac Tea (Deb, my Sis does this for us), started B17 laetrile and raw apricot seeds, started shark cartilage, started mgm3, started MSM, bought ozone generator, bought 15% hydrogen peroxide for baths, organic aloe Vera juice, rubbed DMSO on bad cancer spots, isoflavones, SPES, tons of COQ-10, B6, B2, Pancreatic Enzymes, coral calcium, Sea Salt( ), and flax seed oil with cottage cheese.

"5. Bought a Zapper and Syncrometer… Zap twice daily.

"6. Made her quit her teaching job of 19 years and tried to remove all stress from her life. Kept her smiling and laughing with the help of my two sisters and brother. (My comment: they did not know about EFT, which would had been extremely helpful here).

"7. Bought Qui gong tapes, bought Dr. Day tapes, bought positive reinforcement tapes, use aromatherapy, sunshine treatments, and pure water.

"8. Use oxy-drops and hydrogen peroxide baths to build O2 levels, hyper-thermia in our hot-tub 102 degrees...

"9. Coffee enemas ( ) every morning… no exception.

"10. And…. visualize the cancer being defeated, see it dying, laying on of hands, spiritual knowing, expecting a miracle. You are what you think you are.

"All of the above we still continue today.
"I will post more details as time allows."




Thank you Rex for all this information. All the people out there who managed to heal a cancer with non-official methods should report somewhere on the internet, to share info and give other people hope.

Dear reader, if this is your case, feel free to report here.


You can't fight cancer with nice words and hopes. You fight it with an active mindset, actively taking action and moving on from a passive lifestyle that makes you accept everything that's handed to you by the culture your'e in, junkfood, pollution, etc., to an active choice of many healthier - although not really easy - solutions.

This is not the easy-going lifestyle.
I can see that the REX people did not cling to only one healing solution - like only rawfood and going to a rawfood clinic, or only Dr Hulda Clark's methods... - they took several. They listened to all of the healthy advice they were given here and there and they applied it right away.

When I compare with my friend's mindset, I cannot help thinking she did not want to live...
What if her soul wanted go...? Then it was useless telling her about healthy diet and energy therapy...

New solutions for cancer are appearing here and there in the world. Sometimes, I may report on them in this blog.

I have to heal the loss of this friend of mine...

U.S. Health officials across the world have declared a public health emergency and fear this could be the beginning of a global pandemic that started in Mexico, where seven people are confirmed dead as a result of the new virus.

On Monday April 27th, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its pandemic alert level to four on its six-level threat scale, which means that they have determined that the virus is capable of human-to-human transmission.

The number of death cases and of suspected and confirmed disease cases across the world change depending on the source. Get the latest numbers from Google Maps' Swine Flu Tracker.

According to official sources, the symptoms are:

Fever of more than 100 F
Runny nose and/or sore throat
Joint aches
Severe headache
Vomiting and/or diarrhea
Lack of appetite
Top global

Well, aren't those the ordinary symptoms of normal, regular flu some people get in winter?
Don't rush to the hospital as soon as you have them!

Dr MERCOLA writes:

"I suspect you have likely been alarmed by the media's coverage of the swine flu scare. It has a noticeable subplot - preparing you for draconian measures to combat a future pandemic as well as forcing you to accept the idea of mandatory vaccinations.

"On April 27 Time magazine published an article which discusses how dozens died and hundreds were injured from vaccines as a result of the 1976 swine flu fiasco, when the Ford administration attempted to use the infection of soldiers at Fort Dix as a pretext for a mass vaccination of the entire country.

"Despite acknowledging that the 1976 farce was an example of "how not to handle a flu outbreak", the article still introduces the notion that officials "may soon have to consider whether to institute draconian measures to combat the disease".

""This is NOT the First Swine Flu Panic. The last time was in 1976, right before I entered medical school and I remember it very clearly. It resulted in the massive swine flu vaccine campaign.

"Do you happen to recall the result of this massive campaign?

"Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the vaccine. The vaccine was also blamed for 25 deaths.

"However, several hundred people developed crippling Guillain-Barré Syndrome after they were injected with the swine flu vaccine. Even healthy 20-year-olds ended up as paraplegics.

"And the swine flu pandemic itself? It never materialized.

"More People Died From the Swine Flu Vaccine than Swine Flu!"

Dr MERCOLA's advice is : "The key is to remain calm."
Here are a few simple things to do:

* OPTIMIZE YOUR VITAMIN D LEVELS! Vitamin D is the best thing to avoid infections of ALL kinds, and vitamin D deficiency is what causes you to get the flu in winter because of lack of sun -- not the flu virus itself.
This is probably the single most important and least expensive action you can take.
Have your vitamin D level monitored: to confirm your levels are therapeutic at 50-70 and done by a reliable vitamin D lab like Lab Corp.

* AVOID SUGAR - Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately.
Be aware that sugar is present in foods you may not suspect, like ketchup and fruit juice.


* HAVE EFFECTIVE TOOLS TO ADDRESS STRESS - Relieve your stress with EFT - and I recommend that you get the great mp3 audio from Ron Ball on stress in the EFT WORLD SUMMIT - click on this link
If stress becomes overwhelming then your body will be less able to fight off the flu and other illness.

* EXERCISE WISELY - to increase blood circulation and better diffuse the components of your immune system throughout the body.

* GET OMEGA-3 FAT FROM A RELIABLE SOURCE (the best is krill-oil)

* WASH YOUR HANDS with regular, simple chemical-free soap (not antibacterial soap).

* EAT GARLIC REGULARLY. Garlic works like a broad-spectrum antibiotic against bacteria, virus, and protozoa in the body.

The Truth Behind the Economy Crisis



April 3, 2009 - "The financial industry brought the economy to its knees, but how did they get away with it? With the nation wondering how to hold the bankers accountable, Bill Moyers sits down with William K. Black, the former senior regulator who cracked down on banks during the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s. Black offers his analysis of what went wrong and his critique of the bailout."

EFT SPECIFICS: What if you can't say "I accept myself"

Many people report having difficulties to use EFT's default setup sentence:
"Even though I have this... (name the issue)..., I deeply and completely accept myself".

No problem: You are not obliged to keep any formulation for yourself, you are always free to change it according to your intuition.

For instance, say:
"...., I am open to the possibility of resolving this issue some day..."

Dr Patricia Carrington got even more specific when she created her wonderful CHOICE METHOD, introduced by Gary Craig in the following page of his website:

Gary Craig:

"Celebrities appear to have it all--money, fame, power and the ability to wave their hands and have the world bend to their every whim. That may be so, at least from an outsider's perspective, but their inner worlds are just as prone to frailties as yours and mine.

"Dr. Patricia Carrington takes us on a unique tour inside a celebrity client of hers and develops not only several useful insights for us but also suggests a "choices" version of affirmations."


Dr Patricia Carrington:

I ’ve found that the "Choices" method can assist a client to consolidate and make permanent the beneficial changes brought about by EFT, thus helping these EFT-created changes to generalize to many aspects of the person’s life. When that happens, we see true transformation.
Let me give you an example.

"Tara" came into therapy for help with intermittent depression and marital problems. She is an accomplished singer who grew up in a world of theatre people... (...) When Tara came into therapy she acted as though she had "no identity" of her own... (...)

IF YOU CANNOT SAY "I deeply and completely accept myself"
if could be that you have a REJECTION and ABANDONMENT problem - either one of your parents died when you were very young, or there was rejection abuse. Check this with "The Missing Mother Handbook" with Carna Zacharias-Miller.

"Long time EFT'er Eric Robins, MD discusses the work of health pioneer John Sarno and tells us how emotions are a central cause for pain. We are quite familiar with that notion, of course, having reduced thousands of people's pain by collapsing emotional issues. Dr. Robins says, "Also, I'm sure it’s obvious to you that some of the methods he [Sarno] was using to handle emotional issues are archaic compared to the speed and efficiency of EFT. We could be expected to get better results and faster with EFT, which is the best and fastest mind-body healing technique in clinical use in the world right now." Hugs, Gary

By Eric Robins, M.D

"John Sarno, MD is a professor of physical medicine at NYU, and sees the worst chronic pain patients in the world. Most have had severe pain (neck, back, shoulder, buttocks) for 10 to 30 yrs, most have had multiple epidural injections, one or more surgeries, and years of physical therapy. They all had terrible mechanisms of action (like a forklift truck falling on them or a 747 jet rolling over them), and all their x-rays look like the "Elephant Man", so they seemingly have a good reason for their pain.

"With this cohort of patients, he has a 70% cure rate (with regard to both pain and function), and an additional 15% of his patients are much improved (i.e., 40 - 80% better). And he has had these results with about 12,000 patients.

MSG, the Silent Killer

MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE - or MSG - is a toxic substance people consume in processed foods, and probably wouldn't if they knew it causes many of their brain cells to die.

MSG is a widespread and silent killer that’s worse for your health than alcohol, nicotine and many drugs, and it is likely lurking in your kitchen cabinets right now.

MSG means "monosodium glutamate", and it is a flavor enhancer that has been widely known as an additive in Chinese food; but now, the dirty truth is the is is actually added to thousands of the foods you and your family regularly eat, especially if you eat the majority of your food as processed foods or in restaurants, like most Americans do, and, to some extent, a growing number of Europeans as well.

McDonald's and most all other fast food restaurants use MSG to help sell their foods. MSG is very inexpensive and makes the food taste good -- which in many ways is similar to SUGAR -- but MSG is far more toxic than sugar.

MSG is used in canned soups, crackers, meats, salad dressings, frozen dinners... in supermarkets, restaurants, school cafeterias... and evn in baby food and infant formula. It makes things seem more tasty and fresher.

It is silently doing major damage to your health.


The FDA states:

"Studies have shown that the body uses glutamate, an amino acid, as a nerve impulse transmitter in the brain and that there are glutamate-responsive tissues in other parts of the body, as well.
"Abnormal function of glutamate receptors has been linked with certain neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's chorea. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain."

MSG, like L-cysteine and aspartame, are excitotoxins, chemical transmitters that allow brain cells to communicate, as described in Dr. Russell's Blaylock's book, "Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills".

Dr Blaylock writes:
"When an excess of food-borne excitotoxins, such as MSG, hydrolyzed protein soy protein isolate and concentrate, natural flavoring, sodium caseinate and aspartate from aspartame, are consumed, these glutamate receptors are over-stimulated, producing cardiac arrhythmias.
"When magnesium stores are low, as we see in athletes, the glutamate receptors are so sensitive that even low levels of these excitotoxins can result in cardiac arrhythmias and death."


Health issues linked to regular consumption of MSG include:
* Obesity
* Eye damage
* Headaches
* Fatigue and disorientation
* Depression
* Numbness
* Burning sensation
* Tingling
* Facial pressure or tightness
* Chest pain or difficulty breathing
* Headache
* Nausea
* Rapid heartbeat
* Drowsiness
* Weakness

The following ingredients ALWAYS contain MSG:
* Autolyzed yeast
* Glutamate
* Monopotassium Glutamate
* Calcium Caseinate
* Gelatin
* Glutamic Acid
* Hydrolyzed Protein
* Monosodium Glutamate
* Sodium Caseinate
* Textured Protein
* Yeast Extract
* Yeast Food
* Yeast Nutrient

And those other ingredients OFTEN contain MSG or create MSG during processing:
* Flavors and Flavorings
* Seasonings
* Natural Flavors and Flavorings
* Natural Pork Flavoring
* Natural Beef Flavoring
* Natural Chicken Flavoring
* Soy Sauce
* Soy Protein Isolate
* Soy Protein
* Bouillon
* Stock
* Broth
* Malt Extract
* Malt Flavoring
* Barley Malt
* Anything Enzyme Modified
* Carrageenan
* Maltodextrin
* Pectin
* Enzymes
* Protease
* Corn Starch
* Citric Acid
* Powdered Milk
* Anything Protein Fortified
* Anything Ultra-Pasteurized


Says Dr Mercola: "The bottom line is that you are going to need to invest some time in the kitchen if you want to stay healthy and avoid fast foods, which if consumed regularly will accelerate your departure from this planet."

Psychotherapy and Chinese Medicine

Psychotherapy Dramatically Improved By New 'Acupuncture Without Needles' Technique

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) -- Stanford Engineer Gary Craig brings a new Acupuncture finding to the psychotherapy field. It is called EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and is based on the discovery that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's "subtle energies."

What Traumatic Memories Do to Your Body

The entire body of Chinese Medicine is centered around these minute energy flows but, until recently, their use for emotional issues has gone unnoticed. "Conventional psychotherapy takes a long time to do very little," says Craig, "and that's because psychologists have been looking in the wrong place for centuries."

According to Craig's findings, traumatic memories from the past cause a 'short circuit' in the free flow of the body's Chi (energy) and that is what causes current forms of anxiety, nervousness, depression, headaches, phobic responses and the like. "Once you realize this," maintains Craig, "psychotherapy becomes easy."

EFT repairs this short circuit by stimulating precise meridian points via tapping on them with the fingertips. This simple process can be learned and applied by anyone.

What a Tibetan Medical Doctor Found out

"I believe that acupuncture and EFT work well together," says Tashi Rabten, ND, LAc. At the Lhasa University School of Traditional Medicine in Tibet, where he received advanced degrees in medicine and acupuncture, Dr. Rabten attended over 4,000 hours of acupuncture classes and clinics. He is president of the International Tibetan Medical Association.

"It takes years of practice to become an expert acupuncturist," he says, "but with EFT you can learn to tap on key points in just a few minutes with no experience or training. Acupuncture is still the best way to treat specific health problems because it works deeply and precisely, but EFT is an excellent support therapy, and it helps bring lasting results by removing the emotional causes of many illnesses."

Dr. Rabten has witnessed the physiological changes EFT can produce first-hand. In one case, he held the wrist of a congestive heart failure patient to monitor his pulse, which was fast, weak, and erratic. Dr. Rabten asked the patient's wife to tap EFT points on her husband's face and torso, and within 20 seconds, the patient's pulse slowed and became strong and steady.

Hundreds of reports and case studies from EFT practitioners, including licensed acupuncturists and health care professionals, testify to the procedure's versatility. All of the conditions treated by conventional acupuncture are represented, along with psychological issues like post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias, anxiety, and psychosomatic illnesses. Even reading comprehension problems and golf games improve as a result of tapping.

Craig's EFT Manual provides all the basics for free and has been translated by volunteer practitioners into nine languages. His EFT website has risen from obscurity to the sixth most actively visited natural health site in the world.

EFT to wash away depression

Press Release: New Method for Depression Often Works When Nothing Else Will

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB)--Until recently, few conditions have been as difficult to treat as depression. Depression is exhausting, makes everything a struggle, and interferes with every facet of life.

Psychiatrists used to approach depression and other emotional conditions with talk therapy, but discussing the past seldom brought relief. Now psychiatrists use psychoactive drugs to treat brain chemistry imbalances. While this approach may suppress symptoms, it doesn't address the imbalances' underlying causes, and when the drugs are discontinued, symptoms recur.

Fred Gallo, Ph.D., a Pittsburgh-area psychologist and editor of the book Energy Psychology in Psychotherapy, uses something entirely different. He asks patients to focus on unhappy events, but at the same time he has them gently tap on key acupuncture points. This method is called EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques.

"Using EFT," he says, "I have successfully treated fears, phobias, depression, trauma, and addictions. Its effects are rapid, dramatic, and deep."

Since developing EFT fifteen years ago, Gary Craig, an engineer educated at Stanford University, has trained thousands of health care professionals in this innovative method. Some of these are licensed physicians who use it to augment their medical approaches.

"Depression responds very well to EFT," he says. "In most cases the depressed feelings vanish or are materially reduced within a few minutes of applying it. No drugs are involved. Also, repeated applications of EFT often eliminate these feelings permanently so that they no longer reappear on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. "

According to Craig, many EFT practitioners report an 80-percent improvement rate in treating depression and other unresolved emotional issues. Its basic premise is that the underlying cause of all negative emotions, including depression, is an energy block in one or more of the body's meridians, the same energy pathways mapped thousands of years ago by Chinese physicians.

Often described as "emotional acupressure," EFT works by balancing the body's energy, releasing stored negative emotional responses to past trauma, guilt, and anger. Without its emotional fuel, depression can't start its engine.

EFT may be the world's fastest-growing self-help technique. Every week, between 5,000 and 10,000 people download Gary Craig's free EFT instruction manual, his weekly newsletter has 420,000 subscribers, and the number of health care practitioners who, like Dr. Gallo, incorporate EFT into their daily work has been growing exponentially.

Anyone can download Craig's free EFT Get Started Package at...
He freely gives you all the basics so you can apply it right away.

Anger clearing with EFT

A client resolves lifelong anger on her own

"Hi Everyone,
"This thoughtful article by Mair Llewellyn-Edwards of the UK illustrates a client's choice to use EFT for both herself and her family for long standing anger issues. The client's Grandmother sums it up by saying, "I now no longer blame others or myself, tapping has let me let go".
Please note the client's use of our "Borrowing Benefits" technique as well as a few of my own comments. Hugs, Gary"

By Mair Llewellyn-Edwards:

"Following her boyfriend's recommendation, "Susan" came to me 5 months ago for help with anger management. The boyfriend, "Carl", had used EFT successfully twelve months earlier for a flying phobia.

"I am always a little cautious working with a client who is sent by someone else because I want it to be their decision. However, I need not have worried about Susan she was very motivated to come. It was obvious that she had thought long and hard about working on this problem.

"Right from the onset of meeting her, I knew this meeting was different. Here was a very determined person wanting to sort out an anger problem that had plagued her for years... (...)"


GC COMMENT: "Anger is also a major cause of our physical ailments. It is well known that our emotions trigger a wide variety of chemical changes in our bodies and our "anger chemicals" can be particularly devastating..."


EFT relief for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)

New Treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Delivers Rapid, Long Lasting Results for Iraqi War Veterans--No Drugs Necessary

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) -- Stanford engineer Gary Craig introduces EFT, a new "acupuncture without needles" technique for helping Iraqi War Veterans gain relief from their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and involves the stimulation of certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with the fingertips. This stimulation has been clinically shown in thousands of cases to dramatically reduce, or completely eliminate, the sting of trauma.

"Conventional psychology has been looking in the wrong place for clues to the PTSD puzzle," says Craig. "We have found repeatedly that the nightmares, sweats and intrusive memories of our war veterans occur because their war memories disrupt the proper flow of their bodies' subtle energies."

"Once these energies have been properly balanced," maintains Craig, "the war veteran couldn't get upset about the memory if s/he tried. This is also true for other emotional issues including phobias, grief, rape, depression and anger."

Susan Hannibal is a San Diego therapist and consistent user of EFT who often feels frustrated with the military's use of conventional and ineffective methods for PTSD. "One of the biggest problems facing our military today is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder," she says, "but no one in authority wants to break new ground and use the most effective treatment available."

"Even when they don't sustain physical injuries," says Hannibal, "their lives can go into a tailspin.

Traumatic memories are an underlying cause of health problems, social isolation, domestic violence, divorce, alcohol and drug abuse, and shattered families."

Everyone agrees that conventional treatments do little to help. Psychiatric drugs can dull or numb PTSD symptoms, but drugs have side effects and do nothing to address the disorder's underlying cause. Conventional talk therapy can even make the problem worse by reinforcing traumatic memories.

But Hannibal and other EFT practitioners worldwide routinely neutralize haunting memories - in soldiers, accident or abuse victims, and survivors of disasters - in record time. The simple EFT process often does its job in one or two sessions and, in some cases, has done it in minutes.

One of Hannibal's clients is Navy Corpsman Wilbur Hurley. Just before leaving Iraq, he had to deal with a young Marine's suicide. That event triggered memories of a murder-suicide Hurley witnessed as a child, and he began having vivid nightmares. Returning home, he isolated himself from friends and family and suffered debilitating anxiety attacks, flashbacks, auditory hallucinations, anger, and irritability.

Hurley's symptoms disappeared when Hannibal taught him EFT. After his first session, which Hannibal videotaped, Hurley left her office singing. "It was pretty much the greatest day of my life," he said. Even when he concentrated on the worst events he witnessed in Ramadi, he couldn't find a single memory that bothered him.

Corpsman Hurley has remained free of PTSD symptoms since his three-session treatment in December 2004.

Results like these don't surprise Gary Craig. In 1994, Craig and a colleague visited a Veterans Administration hospital in California, where they worked on-camera with six Vietnam War veterans.

"These men hadn't had a moment's peace in 20 years," says Craig. "Their lives revolved around their terrifying memories." But after just a few minutes of tapping, all of the men experienced profound release.

"Traumatic memories and phobias usually respond quickly to EFT," he says, "and the results are often permanent. EFT not only prevents post-traumatic memories from causing problems, it successfully treats memories that are decades old."

Despite the dramatic results achieved by patients at the VA hospital, says Craig, none of the staff were interested.

Today the Department of Veterans Affairs pays compensation for PTSD to nearly twice as many veterans as it did six years ago, at an annual cost of $4.3 billion. Most recent applicants are Vietnam War veterans.

"It would be wonderful if military chaplains, counselors, and psychologists learned EFT and taught it to everyone," says Hannibal, "but it's so different from what they're used to that no one knows what to make of it."

In addition, she says, there is still a bias against seeking help in all branches of the military. "It's cultural conditioning," she says. "It's unfortunate."

Clearing our body of past experiences

Tap on experiences that are stuck in parts of your body

Gary Craig writes:

"We find with great frequency that unresolved negative emotions and experiences show up in the body as pains or diseases. Once these are truly resolved with EFT, however, the physical symptoms often subside. Sudesh Shetty from India gives us some pointers along these lines."

By Sudesh Shetty:

"The saddest part about negative emotions like fears, anxieties, guilt, anger, suppression is that you are not even aware that they exist and are gnawing away at your body. When I stumbled upon EFT, I found a way of releasing hidden negativities which otherwise would taken a long time for me to discover.

"Using this technique I could release fears and anxiety stored in my scalp, knees and various parts of my body. The body is willing to cooperate. It wants to heal. It wants to release. All we have to do is facilitate this healing process. We like to measure what was there (issue) and what's not there now (healing) to convince ourselves that a technique/therapy works. Why wait before something becomes a problem for you? Why not use EFT to keep your system clean always?

"There are countless experiences that happen to you all the time... (...)



How to Stop Smoking with EFT

New Smoking Cessation Program Resolves the Real Reason that People Smoke

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) -- Smokers typically use nicotine replacement or they "go cold turkey" to quit smoking. They also typically fail. In fact the US FDA reports that 70% of smokers want to quit, but more than 84% of them are unsuccessful in their attempts. Gary Craig, Stanford trained scientist and founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) explains that, "conventional smoking cessation systems don't work because they do not address the real reason that people smoke which is to tranquilize emotional issues like anxiety or low self esteem."

Craig initially developed Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) as a self-help tool for people with emotional difficulties but soon received reports from smokers who said that their craving for cigarettes subsided or disappeared while performing EFT for their emotional issues. These results didn't surprise Craig who maintains that, "smokers are tranquilizing their emotions with tobacco and will find quitting enormously difficult until those emotional issues are resolved.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that people suffering from nicotine withdrawal have increased aggression, anxiety, hostility, and anger. However, Craig doesn't attribute these emotional responses to nicotine withdrawal. He says, "smokers become anxious and irritable when they try to quit smoking because the unresolved emotions they had been trying to suppress with cigarettes come bubbling to the surface as nicotine exits their system."

Craig maintains that using EFT to resolve these emotions will help smokers to conquer this life threatening addiction permanently. "If emotional issues aren't properly resolved, the smoker feels overwhelmed and eventually turns back to cigarettes to pacify the emotional pain."
EFT is a simple technique that combines focused thought with gentle fingertip tapping on key acupressure points. Craig says, "The main cause of all negative emotions is not where psychologists have been looking. Instead, it involves the disruption of the energy pathways in the body. Once these pathways are balanced, the emotional drivers behind smoking and other addictions start to fade."

Dr. Carol Look is a Clinical Hypnotherapist and EFT Practitioner who has helped many clients quit smoking. Dr. Look reports, "While I used hypnosis successfully for many smokers, I found that treatment using EFT gave the client more control, empowerment, and an active tool they could pull out and use whenever they wanted."

Pat Farrell is another Clinical Hypnotherapist who prefers to use EFT for smoking cessation. One woman came to Farrell because she had quit smoking many times but had recently resumed smoking around the occasion of her wedding anniversary; a painful time since her husband had left her three years previously for a younger woman.

With EFT, Farrell helped her client collapse feelings of overwhelming sadness and betrayal as well as her immediate physical cravings for cigarettes. Farrell also addressed the woman's habitual craving for cigarettes with her morning coffee. They worked together for about an hour and only spent three minutes on the actual cigarette craving. The rest of the time they addressed the emotional drivers fueling the woman's need for cigarettes.

Two weeks after treatment, Farrell's client still had no desire for a cigarette. She accomplished this without psychotherapy or nicotine replacement.

Anybody can learn to use EFT to eliminate cigarette cravings and even to quit smoking entirely. Gary Craig explains, "smokers generally expect to fail when they set out to quit. But when they use EFT, most experience an instant reduction in their cigarette craving. Their level of hope increases as their cravings decrease. If they persistently use EFT to address the emotional component of their addiction, they are likely to have a high success rate."

If smoking cessation programs incorporated the proper use of EFT, Craig predicts that their success rate would be about between 50 and 80 percent - instead of the current 84% failure rate.
