How Genes and Epigenetics Influence Your Behavior

How Genes and Epigenetics Influence Your Behavior

“It is all in the genes!”
A very common and clichéd statement we have heard a bit too often! Be it [from] the medical community trying to ascertain the cause of mystifying disease or your doctor trying to warn you of an impending illness citing the example of your elders.
So, what is the jargon all about? That our genes and heredity influences how we look, we already know, but do they also have any bearing on how we behave? More importantly, do our genes also influence our sense of consciousness and self-awareness? In other words, it might be an interesting revelation to look into how far our genetic mapping is responsible for the kind of people we become.
In fact, there is sufficient research to indicate that more than 50 percent of the differences in the level of extroversion in people can be attributed to genetic differences. Meanwhile, the rest - 40 to 50 percent of difference is owing to the environmental factors, which we can also label as the mechanics of epigenetics[1].
Read on as we talk about your genetic mapping and how it influences the kind if individual you develop into. We will also shed some light on the science of epigenetics and how it influences the way we evolve over the years.
Key terms to know:
When it comes to the study of how your individual personality traits develop, there are generally two aspects to the debate, including genetic factors and epigenetics. Let us study each one before going any further.
Your Genes – This is precisely the “Nature” part of your personality. You are born with a certain set of genes and that defines the traits you get as a part of your heredity.
Epigenetics – This is the “Nurture” part of your personality. Referred to as the second level of genetics, this science explains how your genetic structure continuously changes and evolves owing to the influence of your environment and lifestyle. [The epigenome is actually a chemical that turns on and off our genes.]
Now that we have explained the concepts, let us move on to understand how YOU can influence your genes for a better personality and a happier [and healthier] life.
5 steps to influence your genes:
With some learning, consistent effort and a strong will power, you can modify your environment as well as your lifestyle to bring out your best. In other words, you can choose how the mechanism of epigenetics influences your original genetic structure.   
Read on to know more about the five important ways in which you can influence the effect your environment will have on your genes.
1. Eat healthy and right
What we eat and drink has a direct impact on our genetic make-up. When we eat the right type of nutrients in an optimum quality, over the years our body system develops the proper balance. On the contrary, unhealthy eating habits alter your body’s mechanism and metabolism. Eventually, such traits are passed on to the next generations in the line of heredity.
2. Exercise well
Another dictate of healthy living, it keeps your body in the right shape. Maintained over long periods, it then has an effect on your overall stamina and fitness levels, which is then passed on to the next generations.
3. Live in a healthy environment
Even if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, an adverse environment can have a different impact on you. The best example to demonstrate this effect is that of passive smoking. Do whatever it takes to ensure that your surroundings are equally healthy and clean. This way, you will be able to avoid any negative influence that otherwise might be transferred down the heredity line. 
4. Be under good influence
Make sure that you surround yourself with people of good mettle. Keep company with learned and aware people who will have a positive influence on you. The effect of negative company eventually seeps in and affects the kind of person you become.
5. Be in touch with your inner consciousness
Listen to your heart, mind and body. Learn to be at peace with yourself and your surroundings. Keep a sense of what your body finds repulsive and make efforts to change the same for your betterment.
Such modifications and efforts made in the right direction go a long way in shaping the influence on your genes. Apart from helping you to pass on a healthy life to your progeny, it will also help you to live a fuller, healthier and a more successful life.

Dramatic Rise in Dengue Fever, worldwide!

Figures emerging from the Thai Ministry of Public Health indicate that the number of instances of Dengue fever in the country has tripled since the beginning of the year .According to the “Nation” newspaper there are 49,000 reported cases with 59 deaths as of June 21st 2013. The highest mortality rate appears to be among young people.
Dengue is transmitted by the bite of an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito. The black and white spotted insect is usually busy during the day; the mosquitoes pick up the so called virus from infected persons and pass it on to others when they bite.
Symptoms of Dengue are high fever, usually over 40 C, headaches extreme weakness  severe muscle and joint pain; it’s not called “breakbone” fever for nothing!, In some cases a rash  appears. As the disease progresses, platelet counts begin to drop (thrombocytopenia). Platelets are tiny cells that circulate in the blood; their function is to enhance the clotting process. Without adequate platelets, hemorrhages can occur and these are life threatening. A normal platelet count  ranges between 150 and 400 million per milliliter of blood. The danger of Dengue fever is that the platelet count can drop significantly below 100 million with the ensuing risk of life threatening internal bleeding. If this were to happen the condition becomes re-classified as HDF or Hemaroghic Dengue Fever, a condition that is always a medical emergency
If you display any of the symptoms, go at once to the hospital and get checked out. Pharmaceutical based western medicine has no specific treatment for the disease. If the platelet count is too low, you will be hospitalized. If not you will be sent home with a supply of “Acetaminophen”. This is paracetamol, which has many trade names including Tylenol, Anacin or Panadol. In Thailand one variant is Paracap, and another is Sara. This is an analgesic designed to reduce the body temperature, or fever. The doctors will also advise drinking lots of water to prevent dehydration. Drinking electrolyte salts is also useful as is bed rest. Avoid aspirin, Ibuprofen and Naproxen, because these can thin the blood and trigger hemorrhage.
American homeopath William Boericke mentions Dengue Fever on page 924 of his “Materia Medica” that appeared in 1927. Surely it is a mistake to call this a new phenomenon? He tested 12 homeopathic remedies that helped symptoms disappear. For those who don’t know homeopathy is based on the belief that the body understands how to heal itself. A further assumption is “like cures like”; meaning if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person; giving a miniscule amount to a sick individual promotes healing. Incidentally, this was the preferred medical treatment until the mid-nineteenth century when western based pharmaceutical medication moved to the fore. Homeopathy still has a huge following all over the world and its successes can be testified by millions. Advocates of homeopathic treatment include the British Royal Family., David Beckham and Jennifer Anniston.
There have been several studies using homeopathy in the treatment of Dengue fever, particularly in South America. The results have been very favorable. The Thai Health Ministry has approved  one of the remedies recommended by Boericke; that is Eupatorium Perfollatum 200 c.
This also goes under the name of “boneset”. This is derived from a plant, native to North America but known as Feverwort elsewhere.  It seems native North Americans have used the herb in the treatment of Dengue and malaria for hundreds of years .Further evidence attesting to the long history of the illness. The homeopathic remedy contains the tiniest trace of the original plant. This can also be used as a preventative; the recommended dose is two pills twice per week with water. Again the results have been encouraging. However, there are another 11 remedies in Boericke’s list: these include Aconite, Gelsenium, Arsenicum Album and Belladonna. It would always be best to consult a professional to advise you on the remedy best suited for you and your individual list of symptoms.
Using the juice from papaya leaves has shown to help elevate a declining platelet count. It is quite difficult to juice these large leaves; so many people feeling unwell choose instead to use fresh apple juice, with the juice of half a lemon included. Packaged and other synthetic variants bought from a grocery shop will simply not do!  It has to come from the fruit itself and preferably drunk soon after juicing. Ideally three of four apples yield sufficient liquid to make the drink.
If you are unfortunate enough to come down with Dengue, the Health Ambit Consultancy is only too happy to provide you with advice and help at no cost. Please phone 084 7814718, contact via website or message via Facebook.

Are" you drinking too much. Check up here. If the answer is "yes". Take action now!

It’s easy to slip into the alcohol habit; alcohol abuse causes several problems that get in the way of health and well-being.
A simple rule of thumb is to answer these two questions;
• Do you drink alcohol every day?
• Do you remember the last day you did not have a drink?
If the answers are “yes” to the first question and “no” to the second, you need to be aware you have a potential problem. There are other symptoms, too, but we’ll come to those in a moment.
In all honesty, at the outset, addictions are not caused by the substances or things we are supposedly addicted, but to a need to mask, or get rid of some uncomfortable feelings and thoughts that are hovering at the brink of consciousness.
For example your relationship with the man of your dreams is not going as well as you would like. He doesn’t come around to visit as frequently as before and a little nagging voice at the back of your head is saying “something is wrong!” But, you don’t want to believe your thoughts. You start by having a glass or two of wine before and with dinner. This perks you up. It does this in two ways. First it increases your blood sugar levels and this gives you an extra spurt of energy; secondly it enhances dopamine levels. Dopamine is the “feel good chemical” in the brain All this dulls the pain of the relationship complications
Sadly, neither of these affects is long lasting. You feel better and then you inevitably crash as both dopamine and blood sugar levels drop. When sugar drops to a certain dangerously low level it must be increased or else the body is under threat. This turnaround is done by the adrenal glands secreting the hormones epinephrine and nor epinephrine. Rescue operations of this type begin to tax the adrenals if activated too often.
Alcohol also interrupts good sleeping patterns. We have already mentioned low blood sugar. Sometimes after drinking people have to make themselves something to eat before they can sleep or can even be awakened to eat, this is usually  a carbohydrate, snack. This shows the results of low blood sugar. Next, alcohol dehydrates, so there is a tendency of having a dry mouth which wakes you up to drink water. But most important of all alcohol interferes with “REM” or rapid eye movement sleep. This is the time of dreaming. Studies on rats show it is essential for continuing good health. In extreme cases “REM” deprivation can even lead to death! This deprivation leads to irritability in the morning, often a lack of concentration, where details are overlooked and mistakes made. Things are easily forgotten meaning that overall optimum functioning is often downgraded. Tendencies to be overwhelmed by reasonably small events and further studies have shown that the sleep deprived are more likely to be involved in accidents than others. It is also a major cause of depression. If you are experiencing any of these , be on your guard as something is definitely wrong.
Drinking alone and shunning the company of friends is not going to solve the underlying cause. The first thing to do is to stop drinking, even if it is only for a few days. Much better to keep the drinks for week-ends when you go out with your friends!

You really must be sure to drink sufficient water.

In clinical practice, I see a plethora of people with digestive disturbances. And now, thanks, to the QRMA I notice many have over viscous blood whilst scores are dehydrated. I was glancing through a medical blog the other day, and the physician concerned screamed out to the world that drinking more water as a tool for good health was a medical myth. This caught my attention as the contention was so lamentably inaccurate.
Most people drink insufficient water. Now, by water I don’t mean liquids like tea, coffee and juices, I mean good old fashioned, plain water. Drinking insufficient water makes the stomach too dry. When the chyme is churned over by the acid stomach before journeying onto the duodenum as part of the digestion process, it becomes dry and lumpy.

 Digestive enzymes from the pancreas are not evenly distributed in this globular mess of partially digested food. It is this over dry chyme, which then arrives, in the next step of the process. Secretin prompts the pancreas to produce sodium bicarbonate, which is required to raise the pH from an acid 2 to a lovely neutral 7. A bit like an over floury batter the chyme cannot absorb the sodium bicarb in an evenly distributed form. Pockets of acid hide amongst the lumps of digesting food. These pockets allow bacteria, that should have been killed by the more alkaline environment, to thrive and of course the acids interfere with the proper function of the alkaline base small intestine. This condition can easily be halted by each one of us drinking more water before a meal, drinking more water after a meal and more water between meals. As a rule of thumb, simply down a small glass of room temperature water every hour that you are awake.
Secondly there is the question of conductivity; this is usually measured in the urine. Minerals are metals and salts are bases with an acid content. Both are capable of conducting electricity. All the nervous system comprises neural pathways along with synaptic changes which are all electrically driven.

 If the urine conductivity is too high, it tells us that the mineral content of the blood is too high. This makes the system super excitable and toxic because minerals and salts become poisons if they are not diluted to a safe level. You may notice this condition when your urine is too dark. To balance the system, drink more water. Curiously, just by drinking more water can lead to the elimination of symptoms such as headaches. Dr. Batmanledj wrote a book about this called “The Body’s Many Cries for Water.”
 The opposite can of course occur, too. This slows down reactions and can often show itself by a low blood pressure reading. If the mineral and salts are too dilute, you need to take more of them.
The lowering of cholesterol levels has become a monster size business. Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance manufactured by the liver, necessary for various body functions. However, high levels of salts in the blood can cause cholesterol to form on the inside of arteries. Sometimes clumps of this break loose causing obstruction in the blood supply. If such an accident occurs in the heart or brain, death can of course occur. There is no need to take statins to stop this because they will do absolutely nothing to prevent the cholesterol clump from breaking loose, but if you keep the salts sufficiently dilute by drinking plenty of water the condition will not occur in the first place.
Train yourself to drink more water, starting right now!

“SPICE” Spoken English Training in Sri Lanka’s Northern Province, March 2013
 Killinochchi, located three hundred kilometres to the north of Colombo, situated in the “Dry Zone” and well in truly in the “Vanni”. It served as capital of the Eelam State during the 28 year long Civil War that many had branded as “unwinnable”. It was vacated during the second battle of Killinochchi when the Sri Lankan Army’s 57th and 58th Divisions defeated the LTTE in January 2009. Capturing the town had not been an easy task; when the LTTE withdrew the damage was considerable.
Mohan Samarasine founder and Chairman of the UK registered “Spice” charity had chosen the area to support two intensive five day in-service workshops for local teachers. He felt deprived towns like Killinochchi and Mulliaitivu deserved help because of the suffering they had experienced during the cruel war. The goal of the teacher training programme was to introduce new and powerful methods of furthering spoken British English by developing listening and speaking skills. 
 The old LTTE capital of Killinochchi is now a bustling place of redevelopment, spread out straddling the A9 road.   The town’s old water tower has been upended by explosives and lies as a stark reminder of the destruction metered out at the hands of the “Tamil Tigers”. Today it boasts two or three hotels, signifying it is opening up to visitors once again.
Life in Killinochi

The Spice Teachers Training project started on Monday 18th March at the “Zonal Education Office.” There were 22 enthusiastic participants.  
The first day was devoted to discussing problems faced by the teachers. By far the biggest challenge was the lack of resources.  Most of the primary schools lacked qualified teachers, so the onus fell on the secondary sector for the introduction and later teaching of English. This made it extremely difficult for the participants to understand the syllabus. Overall there seemed to be a lack of serious commitment on the part of many of the students. Until English becomes a compulsory subject in the system, this difficulty will continue. The political will was somewhat lacking as many teachers think they have little voice in the birthing of change in their region. If they do not confront the authorities and speak up for better conditions it is unlikely the current situation will change terribly much. Fortunately Spice is there to accomplish its mission, devoted to speaking, promoting and introducing children in Sri Lanka, to English. This charity run from the UK, works in close partnership with the Rajapaksa brothers youth organisation “Tharunyata Hetak” (A Tomorrow for Youth). Such a link-up eases the way for Spice to work with schools and teachers .It depends on kind donations from the public to make its work possible.
One of the most pressing issues stressed in the training is that the tendency to revert to the native language in monolingual classes. This has to be discouraged. The purpose of the Spice training Programme is to emphasise the skills of listening and speaking. To achieve this objective, it is stressed that carrots are much stronger motivating tools than sticks. A tremendous emphasis was placed on games and other activities that inspire participants to speak. For many of the children, the only experience of listening to someone speaking English comes by interaction with their own teachers. It is, therefore, paramount the teachers themselves speak an acceptable form of Sri Lankan English conforming to recognized grammatical rules. The purpose of a language is to communicate and most importantly not to be misunderstood. The Teachers own communication skills need to be enhanced. An enthusiastic teacher can do a lot to help him or herself by repeated exposure to the language. It is not enough to do this on an occasional basis; the exposure needs to be daily. The Internet is an invaluable resource that enables people to listen to spoken English and thanks to Skype and other voice based programs to speak it, too.
The Course explored methodologies via micro teaching and demonstration lessons. All this is a far cry from the time honoured and highly restrictive practice of slavishly following the text book, which by the very nature of the exercise emphasises reading and writing and side-lines the communicatively more basic skills of listening and speaking. Although such an approach is much easier for the teacher, it is far less useful to the student!
Day 4 time was devoted to exploring how spoken English could be encouraged by means of extra curricula activities. How to set-up and use an English Club which meets on a regular basis  with the intention of generating interest through drama, music, songs and games. Teachers already using such schemes were singled out to tell others on how to set them up. An extension of the English Club is the English Camp, where exciting activities can be incorporated into an intensive one or two days out of school event. Teachers are encouraged to introduce these concepts into their own schools. Plans are afoot to develop a residential “English Camp” at St. Thomas’s College, Gurutalawa. This will be run in conjunction with the UK’s leading “Millfield School”.
On the final day, procedures designed to assess competency in spoken English were also examined.  It is stressed that fluency in spoken English can only be tested by speaking the language. All tests have to be spontaneous to ascertain a realistic level of ability. The Training ended on Friday 22nd March. Hopefully, the message stressing that language learning is all about communication got across; if you are not mis-understood you are communicating. Many of the teachers attend courses like this one to interact with native speakers. True, they want to learn from the native speaker, but they also need to be able to determine how well they can communicate with them. Bear in mind this will be the first time some of these adults have had any extended conversation with someone who speaks English as a “Mother tongue.”
A significant purpose of these trainings is to identify the future leaders amongst the teachers attending. Spice has already addressed the issue where UK graduate and TEFL expert Tom Cellar along with Sophie Minor have been in Tangalle assisting local teachers put on trainings such as this one for their colleagues. Mohan would like to see more projects in a similar vein take place in the North. Such plans need funding. Feedback from these courses is resoundingly positive. The teachers are eager to participate. However, funds are not always available to make such exciting schemes materialise.
...The 10 Year National Master Plan for a Trilingual Sri Lanka has provided equal opportunities for all Sri Lankans to obtain skills in Sinhala and Tamil as languages of communication and debate with English as a life skill at levels suitable for individual needs and ambitions. Sunil Fernando President’s Advisor and Co-ordinator on the Task Force on the Teaching of English.

 Mullaitivu in 2009

The  Mullaitivu Teachers” Training Course began on Monday 25th at the recently constructed Mullaitivu Mahavidalay M School. It was built under the auspices of UNICEF, and funded by the Cathal Ryan Trust. The trust is named after Cathal Ryan, son on Irish billionaire and founder of low cost airline Ryanair, Tony Ryan. Cathal spent several years in Sri Lanka flying for Air Lanka; he died of cancer in 2007.The estate was valued at Euro 250 million on his death; his brother and daughter Danielle worked with family members to set-up a trust to give some of this money back to Sri Lanka. The school was a result of the donation.
The Course starting on March 25th began with 16 participants; this number grew to 19 as the week progressed. Tuesday the 26th was Full Moon or ‘Poya Day’. In Sri Lanka such days’ are public holidays.Participants, in a vote of confidence on the Spice Programme, universally agreed, to come in on their day off, for which Spice rewarded them with a lunch. The material covered was the same as in Killinochchi, except it all had to be condensed in to four days.   The reason for this was Friday 29th was ‘Good Friday’. Good Friday is also a public holiday. Besides many teachers had homes and families in faraway Jaffna, understandably they wanted to spend the long week-end with them. The course ended ,therefore, on Maundy Thursday, the 28th of March. There was a short ceremony where speeches were made, and the winning team received their prizes of an umbrella apiece. This was followed by a short reception where all enjoyed short- eats and Coca-Cola.  The participating teachers were so delighted with their Course they made a collection ; three of them then crept out of the classroom, made for the market and presented the facilitator with three beautiful shirts as a  token of thanks.
Several of the teachers displayed injuries received during the war. Many had harrowing tales to tell but asking impertinent questions about their traumas seemed somehow indelicate. Ilango had a badly scarred arm, Mary Rejinah told of how she sheltered in a bunker for three days whilst being shelled by the SLA. Kathya Yasotharan’s husband was killed, leaving her to bring up her son as a single mother. It would be fascinating to know more but intrusion without invitation is an invasion of privacy.
Such trainings can only continue with your help. If you feel such projects are worthwhile, please donate generously.

The Ha Rite

Huna is a form of Hawaiian mysticism and is the word Max Freedom Long used to describe "the secret science behind miracles". In Hawaiian, huna means "secret". The Ha Rite is a manifestation prayer used in Huna and is based on utilizing mana (similar to pranayama or chi) in order to supercharge a prayer, bringing about its manifestation. Miracles have been associated with huna and the ha rite, including weather modification and spontaneous healing, among many, many others.

The following is a description of the powerful Ha Rite, as written by William Glover, author of Huna: Ancient Religion of Positive Thinking.

Following are the elements of a complete and perfect prayer along with suggested affirmations:

1. Decide exactly what is to be asked in prayer.

2. Obtain the cooperation of the three selves: This requires the complete relaxation of the body, the low self and the conscious mind, followed by meditation of the High Self in order to draw it near to you.

3. Generate a surplus of mana, the life force:

I am now going to generate mana by breathing deeply. I am gathering extra mana as I draw in more and more oxygen. I ask my low self to assist me in generating and storing this force. My will is being made strong and enduring so that I am filled with the determination to accomplish these things which I desire.

Take a series of deep breaths:

My vitality is building up; my low self is creating mana. Mana is flowing as water into a bowl. Energy is being stored in the bowl.

I can see the mana rising higher and higher in the bowl until it overflows.

Continue the breathing until you feel fully charged:
I now command my low self to hold this mana energy, until I am ready to send it to the High Self.

4. Make contact with your High Self:

Parental Spirit, who dwells in the realm of Light, I call to you. May the perfection of Your level of being be reflected to my level of being. I ask that You lead and guide me in all that is being done. I ask that You take an active part in my life.

May Your power create for me the good things, first in Your perfected realm and then cause them to appear as realities on my physical level.

5. Make the mental picture (thought form) of the desired condition:

I now make in my mind the mental picture of that which I desire. I feel a deep, emotional need for this request.

Repeat your request three times with as much emotion as possible:
I see myself as already obtaining my request, and give thanks for it.

Send the thought form to your low self to present telepathically
to your High Self:

I hold this picture before the mirror of my High Self and reflect it down into the depths of my low self.

7. Strengthen the thought form with mana and send it to your High Self:

I now send this thought form picture along a stream of mana to You. May this gift of mana empower You to work on Your level.

8. End the prayer with a feeling of faith and confidence:

I end my prayer and release it to Your keeping to work with as You see fit. I know that is is only a matter of time until my request appears as a reality on the physical level . . . . My prayer has taken flight. Let the Light of my High Self shine back to me. SO BE IT.

The Medical Myth Exposed, we can fully heal ourselves easily and cheaply:

In order to heal themselves the majority of people believe that the most logical means of effective care is the "Western Medicine Model."  This industry generates billions of dollars of profits annually. It grew after the inception of the American Medical Association in 1848 and quickly superseded its predecessors homeopathy and naturopathy. The earlier examples depended on cheap remedies that could be made from naturally occurring organic and inorganic substances. Anybody could make these medicines; meaning they could not be patented. Allopathic medicine developed alongside the oil industry, where medicines were made, frequently with a petrochemical base. These synthetic remedies were concocted in the laboratory; these could be patented, often at substantial profit to the developer. The medical profession itself evolved from the role of the surgeon whose job it was to fix bodies broken in the battlefield. It is in this realm of emergency medicine that doctors excel.  Who would go and see an acupuncturist if they broke their arm in a motorcycle crash?
Western Medicine has preserved its status as the purported most effective means of treatment by a slight of hand trick. It has programmed people to believe it is overall, the most effective mode of cure. It does this because it lays claim to be fully supported by “Science”. This is based on the mechanistic view of the world as laid down by Descartes and Newton.  Both lived during a period of intense mechanization. The machine arrived to industrialize the west, and it naturally dominated thinking.  Medicine became mechanistic, upheld by a belief the human body was both predictable and followed consistent common actions. The old way of holism was abandoned. Anyone who was a critical of this new system was ridiculed and made to appear both ignorant and stupid. This is an effective way of silencing criticism. This new medicine grew at a tremendous pace and profit. Yes, it introduced cleaner practices like sanitation and proper sewerage which largely eradicated the acute diseases of the past and then along came scientists like Einstein, Bohr and Planck who turned the old thinking upside down. Quantum science moved away from predictable mechanical principals and exposed a much more volatile cosmos. As these strange and scary theories developed medicine countered with antibiotics, radiation treatments and vaccines. Antibiotics changed the face of treatment forever. Bacterial infections could be reversed without life threatening symptoms. The world was a different place. They eradicated old diseases and everything seemed generally better, but was it?
The power of antibiotics was staggering and practitioners began to prescribe them for viral conditions for which they were ineffective. A frightening trend developed, many of the antibiotics began to prove useless against certain bacterial strains and so they had to develop more powerful drugs to combat the resistant pathologies. Some people began to ask questions. There seemed to be a swing back to the old ways, and these old therapies now reborn were branded as alternative medicine. Allopathy decried these less profitable cures as unscientific and often dangerous. This propaganda campaign was dominated by compliant media keen to collect the rich rewards of advertising by the pharmaceuticals. But all along there was an answer, but people didn’t know it!
This old cure had always been there, animals much closer to nature than man, were aware. Dogs instinctively eat grass when ill. The grass causes them to vomit or otherwise excrete the causative toxins. Nobody taught the animals to use these natural medicines, the knowledge was hot wired into them, lodged in the old brain available for all to use. If animals had such knowledge, then man certainly did. He had been tricked into believing that such powers were beyond him. But they weren’t!
When we come to “cause” in life we take our power back. Western medicine places the patient at “effect”. He sees a specialist who tells him what to do and then prescribes treatments that the patient dutifully follows until well. He has remarkably little control over his own well-being.  When he moves to “cause” he then takes responsibility for his own healing.
 The unconscious mind is the repository of vast knowledge. It can handle in excess of 15,000,000 bits of data per second. It runs the body, stores memories and races emotions, but it also knows what is wrong and how to put it right. We simply tap into the subconscious and command it to heal us, that’s all! Hypnosis had proved that a long time ago. But we can do this without hypnosis! All that is required is to set up a communication system with this mysterious super computer. There are many painless ways to accomplish this. When this communication is in place, we can deduce from the subconscious when healing has happened. The other notable feature is the bodies! Essentially we have three main bodies comprising Spiritual, Emotional and Physical which are subdivided into twelve sub-bodies. It is crucial disease is removed from all of them. To achieve success we just verify that the bodies are clear and if they are not, we keep clearing them. Then gradually, disease, which comprises, many different aspects leaves the system. People have cured thousands of illnesses and conditions this way. These illnesses range from herpes 1 and 2, to arthritis to cancer to thyroid disease to malaria and more.  Oh, you can even work on your pets.  Want to know more, contact me and I will be delighted to teach you, or your group to heal in this way? It’s easy, and anyone can do it! Contact me and we can arrange it! Here's how.......

Are Greenhouse Gases responsible for Global Warming?

As we come into 2013, the time has come to dispose of a few politically inspired myths and global warming caused by man’s overuse of cars, aeroplanes and industrialisation is just one of them. To challenge the prevailing views on climate change is according to Lord Lawson of Blaby “politically incorrect”. If something is considered improper in this way, then it’s necessary to ask whether there is a hidden agenda. The experts on weather change are not politicians like Presidential hopeful Al Gore but climate scientists.
The media talks about CO2 in awed terms as if it were some vicious substance destined to end man’s tenure on earth. Carbon di-oxide is a naturally occurring gas which helps living things grow. Humans produce a small portion of the world’s supply, somewhere in the region of 6 gigatons, which palls when compared to the 150 gigatons created  by animals and bacteria. CO2 is a small component of the earth’s atmosphere, comprising a tiny 0.54% . It’s a greenhouse gas, but by far the biggest is water vapour , which comprises 95% of the total. These gases are essential; they trap the sun’s heat in the troposphere. If this did not happen, it would dissipate off into space and life here on earth would be impossible. If greenhouses gases are responsible for climate change then the troposphere should be getting warmer, and this is not happening. The facts don’t fit the theory.
After being declared the victor in 2000 presidential election and then defeated by a recount and a decision by the US Supreme court, Al Gore became not President but a vociferous spokesman on  global warming.  In his emotional film “An Inconvenient Truth”, he bases his argument on ice core samples. These create a weather picture spanning millennia. He used the information to establish a correlation between the rise of CO2 and temperature increase, but he leaves out an important fact. Professor Clark points out that there is a considerable time lag between the temperature rise and the increase of the gas. Temperatures have increased by 0.5 degrees Celsius over the last 150 years. The greatest increase came prior to 1940 when industrial production was relatively low and then dropped over the succeeding 40 years which was a time of massive industrial expansion due to the post war industrial boom. It seems then that CO2 increases are the result and not the cause of temperature increase. Professor Michaels of the University of Virginia says people who claim CO2 is responsible for global warming have simply not examined the facts.
Oceanographer Karl Wunsch of MIT reiterates the oceans are the planets biggest treasury of carbon di-oxide. He explains the time interval between temperature rise and gas increases is due to the size  of the oceans. When temperatures rise the sea is warmed and gives off higher amounts of CO2. However, it takes a long time to raise sea temperature, and that explains the significant time lag between increased temperature and heightened CO2 levels.
If Greenhouse gases and CO2 are not causing so called global warming, what is? Look up in the sky and chances are you’ll see the sun. It’s increased sunspot activity that is causing temperature increases. This is not new. Historically there have been periods of earth’s history when the weather has been much warmer and times when it has been a lot cooler. Prior to the current 150  year cycle there was a cold spell known as the “Little Ice Age”; this began in Europe in the fourteenth century. Contemporary pictures and illustrations show this. In London, the Thames froze over most years; this cold snap was preceded by a time where temperatures where noticeably warmer and referred to as “The Medieval Warm Period”. Vines grew right up to northern England according to Geoffrey Chaucer. So why are we being misled? Margaret Thatcher jumped on this bandwagon and played a role in setting up the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). She did this to justify her nuclear fuel strategy. Those events happened over a quarter of a century ago, and remember the UN has proposed a global carbon tax; is there a connection?
