A Dog’s Life


A dog’s life can be pretty good, especially if when they live at our farm. 

Looking at a little known way that a dog’s life can make all our lives better reveals an important lesson in life worth remembering.

Ma & Chuk

Our hounds, Chuk and Ma.

The lesson to remember is that medicine is dose.  Some poison, in the correct amount, becomes great medicine, for the body, for the bank account and for the soul.

A Wall Street Journal article about a dog’s life “How Dogs Might Protect Kids Against Asthma: Gut Bacteria” (1)  tells of a study on how a pet dog creates diversity in human microbes.   There appears to be a relation between the  diversity and lower risks for asthma and allergies in children.

The article said:  “Having dogs in the house might inoculate the GI tract of babies and lead to a more mature immune response that is less sensitive to many allergens”, said Susan Lynch, an associate professor in the division of gastroenterology at University of California, San Francisco and senior author of the study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  “We develop this great diversity of organisms [in the gut] over the first couple of years of life,” Dr. Lynch said.  The gastrointestinal microbiome is the subject of a growing body of research showing the bacteria play key roles in metabolism, immunity and a variety of other biological processes.

Here is the message.  Bacteria, a.k.a. germs, can be (in fact are) good.  Yet the tendency of our modern world is to paint all things black or white.  We are encouraged to indulge in the white and totally avoid the bad.  Germs = bad… avoid =  kill.  Supermarkets even put hand sanitizers at their entrances so we can KILL ALL GERMS.  Heaven forbid we touch a shopping cart that has germs.

The reality is, immune systems need germs to learn how to fight them.  The process is one we all know, inoculation, the introduction of a poison or germ into our system so our immune system creates a defense.

Weirdly, the same institutions that suggest we avoid or kill all germs tries to fill us (especially our children and grandchildren and grandparents) with vaccinations, using the same principle.

The principle of poisons works at many levels in our life.

Take for instance junk food.  Junk food is toxic, a poison.  Avoid it?  Dr. Stephen T. Chang in his book, “The Tao of Balanced Diet” says, NO.  Chang wrote that we live in a toxic world with no hope of immediate change so we cannot avoid toxins all the time, for as long as we live.  “We must thank God for giving us livers for our livers are toxin filters and detoxifiers, without which we cannot live.

He goes so far as to suggest eating junk food once in awhile to temper the liver is good.  He wrote:  “Living strictly on pure foods in pure environments can weaken the liver’s ability to tolerate toxins, a single exposure can be fatal.”

At the level of finance, competition can seem like poison if it attacks the businesses we run or invest in.   Yet as capitalists, we know that competition can create a positive evolution.  Without competition, we might all be driving Edsels or worse, still rising horses.

Too much competition, too much junk food or too many germs can be bad, but medicine is dose.  If we reverse our thinking from the thundering herds we are more likely to spot value when we see something that really is good that the masses think is bad.   Think about this, “A spoonful of medicine helps the sugar go down”.

Next time we face a problem or poison or toxin, let’s think about ways we can take just the right amount of it.  The process can make us stronger because medicine is dose.

Essential Oil Deodorant for Natural Health

Here is why I am excited about the essential oil deodorant Merri and I use.

Merri and I lived and worked with this Ecuador Yatchak for seven years.

ecuador shamans

This photo was taken after a purification ceremony at a sacred spring.

One of the main ways this shaman helped restore our health was through purification.  He had us walk in mountain mists.  “The negative ions in the mists attach to free radicals and purify the skin to cleanse us from the inside out,” he said.  Another purification was of our blood.  He fed us herbs, minerals and a low calcium diet.  There was almost no dairy served.  We used watermelons, pineapple and sweats to purify.

One of the most important lessons gained is that the first rule of good purification is “Avoid getting impurities in your body in the first place!”

Everyday living bombards most of us with all types of toxicity, from the air we breath, to the water we drink, even the receipts at the supermarket may be toxic.  Merri and I compensate for this by taking care in what we eat, drink and especially breathe and put on our skin.  The fastest way for any element good or bad to get into the blood stream is via the lungs and the skin.

Now there is a better way to replace a toxin with a purifier.

Since it is difficult for most of us to avoid toxicity in the West, this message looks at a longevity alternative and begins by showing how in the early 2000s, due to strict FDA  regulations, the government has approved a product that may encourage cancer, create dementia, Alzheimer’s and complicate kidney problems.

The FDA issued a final rule which said “over-the-counter (OTC) antiperspirant drug products are generally recognized as safe and effective and not misbranded as part of FDA’s ongoing review of OTC drug products”.  I suspect that part of this ruling was influenced by scientists with the Personal Care Products Council, the trade association that represents the cosmetic and personal care products industry.  They have claimed that “antiperspirants can be used with high confidence of their safety. They’ve been used for many years, and there’s no evidence that suggests a problem“.

Many people use over-the-counter antiperspirant drug products every day because almost everyone does.  That’s the way its seems like it has always been.  Is this wise or simply the massive repetition of an error?  We assume that the FDA exists to protect us, but must ask this question, “How much should we trust?”

The FDA’s claims of safety are not entirely correct, because antiperspirants contain aluminum. 

An article at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment helps clarify the risks of placing aluminum under our arms every day. (2)  This article says of aluminum, a main ingredient in antiperspirants, “What’s it good for in humans? Simple answer: not very much.  Except for possible involvement in some enzymatic reactions, aluminum “has no known function in the human body.”   While there is little or no upside for aluminum in the body, there is a most definite downside: aluminum is a neurotoxin.

The Aluminum Downside

The Duke article (linked below) contains numerous links to a number of negative health effects, including impaired mental and motor function, Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases, and bone diseases.  It points out a number of questions about aluminum’s impact on human health and explains there is not much study on aluminum antiperspirants.  Then it says: So, while the FDA regulates antiperspirants as over-the-counter drugs and deems them safe, it hasn’t based its decision on a large body of work specifically examining these products.  So rather than a stamp of approval, FDA’s aluminum regulation seems more an indication that, given the ubiquitous nature of aluminum, exposure from antiperspirants isn’t believed to be unsafe.”

Antiperspirants and Disease:  It’s the Pits

In other words there’s no definitive answer.  There are links between aluminum and disease, yes.  There is a link to Alzheimer’s, dementia, diminished thinking and cancer but, no study provides specific proof of a direct link between antiperspirants and these problems.

We can see the risks of aluminum more clearly at a different government source, the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry. (3)

This agency’s report on aluminum says: Workers who breathe large amounts of aluminum dusts can have lung problems, such as coughing or changes that show up in chest X-rays.  Some workers who breathe aluminum-containing dusts or aluminum fumes have decreased performance in some tests that measure functions of the nervous system.

Some people who have kidney disease store a lot of aluminum in their bodies.  Sometimes, these people developed bone or brain diseases that doctors think were caused by the excess aluminum.

Although aluminum-containing over the counter oral products are considered safe in healthy individuals at recommended doses, some adverse effects have been observed following long-term use in some individuals.

Studies in animals show that the nervous system is a sensitive target of aluminum toxicity.

Then there is the question of  parabens.

A health warning from Mercola.com (4) says:   99% of Breast Cancer Tissue Contained This Everyday Chemical (NOT Aluminum). Recent research found higher concentrations of parabens in the upper quadrants of the breast and axillary area, where antiperspirants are usually applied, suggesting they may contribute to the development of breast cancer.

The data from this latest study, the most extensive examination of parabens in human breast so far published, confirms previous work and raises a number of questions on the entire parabens, personal care product and human health debate, particularly relating to the source and toxicological significance of the paraben esters.

Merri and I have not used antiperspirants for decades.  We eliminate a potential toxicity and use purifying essential oils instead.  F

We mix tea tree with other essential oils in a base of organic jojoba oil and use this under our arms instead.

This essential oil formula acts like a deodorant and helps improve rather than decrease natural health. 

Let me begin by saying that essential oils have not been evaluated by the FDA as cures for any specific illness.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease.  It simply a common sense approach to assume that putting organic, all natural essential oils under your arms is better for you then chemical laden deodorants and antiperspirants.

The essential oils in the formula are:

Tea Tree  (Melaleuca alternifolia) – broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity against bacteria, viruses, fungi. (The #1 First Aid Oil for skin infections and tissue issues of all kinds.)

Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia) – antiseptic, antimicrobial, deodorant, anti-inflammatory. This #1 Balancing Oil for the central nervous system is highly antiseptic.  Great for balancing skin bacteria and combating odors.

Lemon (Citrus limonene) – antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent, antibacterial, tonic. The Oil of Sunshine to cleanse our skin, lift our spirits, and combat negative smells. Lemon is an exceptional antiseptic with a joyful aroma.

Geranium (Pelargonium roseum) – deodorant, fungicidal, antiseptic, antibacterial. The Soothing Oil for calming down skin irritations and our nervous system. The rose element in this Geranium is nurturing to our physical and emotional state … our whole sense of well-being.

Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) – anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent, anti-fungal. An Oil of Antiquity renown for skin and wound care. Used in healing unguents of Ancient Egypt. Also known to instill tranquility and peaceful effects on many levels.

Use a purifier rather than a toxin and save at the same time.

You save first because you can also throw away expensive colognes, perfumes and face cremes as well as deodorants.  You save money as you gain a chance for better health.  Only one or two drops of each oil are required so a bottle goes a long way. One bottle lasts for a couple of months for me.  If you use it for the face as well… obviously it will go faster.

The price is already low, but during the sale the price is less than half that charged for 3 ounces of  women’s DERMAdoctor Total NonScents Brightening Antiperspirant.

More importantly this could offer a lifesaving savings.  According to answers.yahoo, the treatment cost for stage 3 non-hodgkin’s lymphoma can easily exceed $300,000 so cutting off  potential health problems at the pass can really make sense.

Merri and I love the refreshing smell and feel of this spray that eliminates the need for perfume, cologne and antiperspirants that may contain unhealthy chemicals.

We cleanse internally as well as explained below.

Beyond Chelation

Vitality Force provides a simple (and incredibly low cost) amino acid that can help improve cardiovascular systems, increase memory, improve vision, enhance vitality, expand energy and extend lifespan.

A delegate at one of our courses was a doctor in his eighties but who had the energy and looks of a much, much younger man.  When asked about his secret of youth he said his vitality was based on several factors.  A few of them you would expect, such as good diet, sufficient exercise and plenty of activity in a strong, purposeful life.  Then he explained another secret of his youth and energy: chelation.

This youthful doctor told us he had been running the largest I.V. chelation center in the United States from Hawaii. Hardening of the arteries is such a huge problem in our modern world that he was making a fortune.

Then, he said, he had learned about a vitamin-mineral formula that was so effective that he shut down his clinics and exclusively used this simple formula which he felt had better results than I.V. chelation therapy.

Years of research are behind this comprehensive cardiovascular nutritional supplement, designed to maintain and promote vascular health, mental and physical well being.

That client and doctor friend gave us a month’s supply of this formula.  He thought it would be excellent for us and would help us with traveling also.  Merri and I tried this product ourselves and felt better and better.

We have made it a point to take heart healthy supplements since.  We love the savings we enjoy with the mixed supplement we use.   It is so much less expensive than all the numerous other vitamins and minerals that we had been taking.  We actually were spending less!

The system we use is so convenient.  Everything is in one simple scoop of powder we take daily.  Especially when we travel we just bring along a packet for each day we are on the road.  No more loading up pill boxes or bringing bottles (or suitcases full of bottles) of vitamins and stuff.

As is so often the case when we like something we start talking about it and pretty soon, a batch of friends were taking Vitality Force and telling us great things about their experiences.  They reordered so much of it through that I decided to make it available to all my readers.

Let me begin by saying that Vitality Force has not been evaluated by the FDA.  This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease and should only be taken as a food supplement.  Having said this, I share information about Vitality Force below.

This supplement combines over two dozen ingredients, known to have beneficial effects, into one total cardiovascular support program.

Vitality Force’s main ingredient is L-arginine.  Studies have shown that L-arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, an important cardiovascular signaling molecule.

What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is the biological precursor of nitric oxide.

The medical establishment has known about the benefits of nitric oxide as nitroglycerine and amyl nitrite which creates a flood of nitric oxide have been used in medicine for over a century.

Nitric oxide is an important signal and effector molecule made by the blood vessels’ lining. The endothelium is exquisitely sensitive to the physical and chemical conditions inside our blood vessels. When the endothelium senses heart-healthy conditions, such as physical activity and low cholesterol, it releases more nitric oxide.  That’s good because nitric oxide expands the blood vessels, increasing blood flow and decreasing plaque growth and blood clotting.

In 1998, three research scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine when they discovered the natural nitric oxide cycle in our cells.  Nitric oxide is essential to a vital natural cycle at the cellular level.  It is so  important in neuroscience, physiology, and immunology, that one year it was named “Molecule of the Year”.   Research into its function led to a Nobel Prize for discovering its importance as a cardiovascular signalling molecule. The nitric oxide cycle especially helps the heart.

Nitric oxide is the simple molecule that improves the flow of blood to the heart body and brain, It also increases energy and stamina, relieve  stress, strengthens the immune and digestive system, plus improves clarity of mind.  Nitric oxide improves the health of the inner wall of a blood vessel, keeps vessels pliable and elastic, dilates blood vessels keeping blood flowing smoothly, relax blood vessels, keep platelets and white blood cells calm and prevent them from sticking to the vessel wall, prevent oxidation, slow plaque growth, suppress atherosclerosis and melt away plaque that already exists.

There are many benefits from removing plaque from the body:

  1. Helps to prevent arteriosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
  2. Helps to rejuvenate your cardiovascular system
  3. Helps to improve conduction in all degrees of A-V heart block
  4. Helps increase American life expectancy
  5. Reduces blood pressure and blood cholesterol
  6. Improves circulation
  7. Improves vision and hearing
  8. Improves liver function
  9. Improves skin texture and tone
  10. Helps prevent abnormal cross linking of molecules that age tissue
  11. Helps to relieve symptoms of senility by increasing circulation to the brain
  12. Helps to relieve pain, hypoglycemia, phlebitis and scleroderma
  13. Dissolves fats in plaque lined arteries
  14. Helps make blood slippery and prevents abnormal blood clotting
  15. Helps to increase tissue oxygenation

Anti-Aging, Longevity, and Preventative Medicine are the Future!

With our knowledge of alternative medicine doubling every three years and our technology advancing exponentially, we are entering an age where we are able to probably turn our biological clock backwards!  Instruments are now in use that can measure the functioning of each of our physical organs and new high potency nutritional supplements, hormonal balancing, and advanced oral chelation products have become available which can enhance the functioning of our organs and help prevent heart attacks and fight many of the auto-immune and degenerative diseases that are plaguing modern society.

There is one more benefit.  That is the savings and convenience.  Vitality Force is much more than just an all natural solution for cardiovascular health.

The formula includes the highest quality arginine, vitamins, minerals, and other immune boosting ingredients. It works by dilating the blood vessels to allow more oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout the body.  This helps improve the  bio-availability of all nutrients and helps enhance your other supplements that you may already be taking.

I like the powdered form because research suggests that consuming liquid nutritional products provides significantly improved absorption, (80% vs. 20% from tablets).

Vitality Force supports:

* Cardiovascular health

* Healthy immune function

* Anti-aging properties

* Improved energy levels

*  Dilated blood vessels to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to muscles and the cardiovascular system

* Increased efficiency of oxygen utilization for energy production

* Enhanced numbers of mitochondria to actually produce energy

The Vitality Force formula includes:

  • L-Citrulline
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • B1 (thiamine)
  • B2 (riboflavin)
  • B3
  • B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • B6 (pyridoxine)
  • B12 (methylcobalamin)
  • Folate
  • CoQ10
  • Omega 3
  • Resveratrol
  • Potassium
  • Chromium Polynicotinate
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Fulvic Minerals
  • AstraGin™
  • Fructooligo Saccharide
  • Stevia

I get all these ingredients in Vitality Force from one daily scoop of powder!  I take mine first thing each morning and can feel a big positive difference in my vitality.

The Ultimate Key to Vitality

Taking Vitality Force provides almost every vitamin and mineral that we were previously taking in separate form.

Merri and I have actually reduced our spending on vitamins and minerals.  The powder is tasty, easy to use and one container has a month’s supply, which at $44.95 makes this a very inexpensive way to get most of the vitamins and minerals you already take as you gain the chelation benefits.

Vitality begins with activity including physical activity.  Many factors in modern living inhibit our physical activity.  There is a lot of stress to maintain a lifestyle.  Modern conveniences like the computer, electricity and car make it easier not to exercise.  There is also a difficulty in obtaining vitamin filled and rich, healthy food.  All of this saps vitality and can lead to a negative health spiral.  We feel badly so we eat comfort food and sit.  This makes us feel worse and the negative spiral deepens.

One way to break bad habits and a negative health spiral is to generate more nitric oxide.

One way to generate more nitric oxide is simply by taking a scoop of Vitality Force each day!

Ecuador Shamanic Imagination & Longevity


Ecuador shamans use imagination to enhance longevity.

Stress is a frequent cause of disease that shortens our lives. Yet most stress is created by total figments of our imagination.

Most religious and medical disciplines tell us how to combat the imaginary diseases before they become hardened into a physical realm… with Faith… Prayer…. Meditation… and Imagination.

After yesterday’s message about Ecuador Profit & Imagination a reader reminded me of Albert Einstein “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.

Ecuador-shamans

Our Ecuador shamanic minga tour uses imagination when we visit the sacred Lake Quicocha. Here are delegates on a minga with Merri loading at the dock.

Ecuador shamans use imagination as a vital part of their healing… as do healers in many part so the world.

Stephen T. Chang for example writes in his book, “The Complete System of Self Healing Internal Exercises”:

The proper use of imagination plays an important part in some of the internal exercises.  It has been recognized for centuries that a thought is as much a material reality as a material object and in fact they are one in the same.  They are both forms of energy, the distinguishing difference being that they exist at different frequencies and wave lengths of vibration.  Imagination is used in some cases to bring together the mind and the body so that they function as a unit. By using our imagination we may begin to explore our minds and bodies.

Ecuador-shamans

Our Ecuador shamanic minga delegates travel to the other side of this mist shrouded lake in these boats.

Chang supports this thought with studies from Dr Karl H. Pribram who is a professor at Georgetown University , and an emeritus professor of psychology and psychiatry at Stanford University and Radford University.  He is a board-certified neurosurgeon and received a Nobel prize for pioneering work on the limbic system, relationship of the frontal cortex to the limbic system, the sensory-specific “association” cortex of the parietal and temporal lobes, and the classical motor cortex of the human brain.

Some philosophers and scientists even believe that our world is a hologram. Dr. Pribram’s research suggests that everything is  made of every person’s projection, individually and also as well as collectively.

ecuador-shaman

This Ecuador yatchak and his wife take us across the lake.

Some of Pribam’s comments include:

Both Science and Spiritual have already proved (or not exactly) that we are all interconnected with each other. Quantum Physics has discovered that in the purest form of all existence, there is only energy.

In a hologram, the whole world is actually contained in every single part, which also means that when a light is shone through the smallest sliver of a holographic film will reveal the whole image. I mean, “The whole thing!” And this is true no matter how microscopically small it may goes.

If indeed we’re right that these quantum-like phenomena, or the rules of quantum mechanics, apply all the way through to our psychological processes, to what’s going on in the nervous system — then we have an explanation perhaps, certainly we have a parallel, to the kind of experiences that people have called spiritual experiences. Because the descriptions you get with spiritual experiences seem to parallel the descriptions of quantum physics. That’s why Fritjof Capra wrote The Tao of Physics, why we have The Dancing Wu Li Masters, and all of this sort of thing that’s come along. And in fact Bohr and Heisenberg already knew; Schroedinger talked about the Upanishads, and Bohr used the yin and yang as his symbol. Because the conceptions that grew out of watching the quantum level — and therefore now the neurological and psychophysical level, now that it’s a psychological level as well — seem to have a great deal in common with our spiritual experience. Now what do I mean by spiritual experience? You talked about mental activity, calling it the mind. That aspect of mental activity, which is very human — it may be true of other species as well, but we don’t know — but in human endeavor many of us at least seem to need to get in contact with larger issues, whether they’re cosmology, or some kind of biological larger issue, or a social one, or it’s formalized in some kind of religious activity. But we want to belong. And that is what I define as the spiritual aspects of man’s nature.

If this is true then a thought reflects the entire universe.

Ecuador-shamans

we plant our wishes… desires… plans… our imagination.

Ecuador shamanic healing uses imagination in healing in similar ways to the Taoist approach to health.

For example maintaining balance during accelerated change is a root of Ecuador shamanic and Taoist healing.

Both of these sciences believe that stress, environmental social and internal are the initiators of disease so they recommend internal exercises that restore balance and  increase longevity.

For example Taoist healers  believe that change upsets the water balance when people feel confined and restricted by circumstances in which they lack  freedom.  This water imbalance can clog the functions of the kidneys, bladder and urinary tract.

The exercise to restore balance is called The Monkey Exercise because the monkey epitomizes boundless activity, curiosity and free will.

This exercise relies almost entirely on imagination. Here is how Stephen Chang describes the Monkey Exercise:

Begin by standing or sitting. Take a few deep breaths while imagining yourself a monkey. When the visualization is complete, kick off your shoes. Throw off your clothes, and begin to act like a little monkey. Sit on the floor. Crouch in a chair. Leap about.  Bounce up and down. Hang upside down or by one arm, whatever is physically possible to do without strain or exertion.  This exercise is completely free-style; all the movements and actions should act out impulses and whims as they occur to you.

Such a simple… yet effective exercise for longevity… using just imagination.

When Merri and I hiked with friends and the Taita Yatchak into the LLanganatis were were put through the initiations of earth, water, fire and air. Then the yatchak taught us an exercise to eliminate undue stress from worries about change and the future.  On this path…

Ecuador-shamans

the yatchak taught is to look ahead… then close our eyes and keep walking… to trust and have faith in what we are… what we know and our connection with the whole.

That’s a good exercise… but perhaps best started in an empty… flat field!

Excessive stress shortens lives and kills.  Yet this frequent visitor is almost entirely (or perhaps is entirely) created by total figments of our imagination.  Ecuador shamans and healers using ancient wisdom (and MDs with sugar pills and placebos) fight fire with fire and use imagination to heal and enhance longevity.
