Super Cognition: The Health Ranger reveals brain power secrets for peak human performance

We’ve long been fans of Mike Adams, aka The Health Ranger. In this recent post of his, he’s giving you lots of tips to get “superhuman” brain power…well, he believes it’s ordinary brain power that EVERY human is capable of.

We definitely agree with his suggestions, but we have a few more of our own to add:

  1. In the podcast, Mike talks about reading from his Samsung Galaxy phone while in a checkout line buying groceries…Anyone who knows us, knows that we tell anyone who will listen that Cellphones, WIFI as well as other microwave-based technology items (aka Pulsed High Frequency Microwave Radiation”) is HARMFUL not only to your dear, precious mind & brain, but to the human genome. Read this important report on “Neurological Effects of Radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RFR)”  by Henry Lai, an acclaimed scientist, researcher and bioengineering professor at the University of Washington. Here is a link to other studies and papers showing the health effects of this very convenient, yet harmful technology. Ever wonder why everyone around you has memory problems; says and writes the wrong words, phrases; easily gets lost or confused; has trouble understanding what you are saying, what they read or what they see… it’s called “cell phone dementia” (or “Microwave Dementia”). I’m sure Mike Adams suggestions for nutritional support will help these people somewhat, especially using highly antioxidant substances like Ginkgo bilioba, Astaxanthin, Vitamin C, Turmeric and others, but the fact, is, if you are not removing the source/cause, you can only get so far. I, for one, highly value my brain. In fact, in modern American culture, intelligence has become highly overrated…and that is NOT progress for the human species.
  2. Mike, with all his nutritional knowledge and the wonderful things he is doing for humanity by, for instance, testing supplements, foods and more for contamination, does not regularly (or very openly) promote homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy does wonders for the mental functioning, intelligence, will power and productivity of people. Functional disturbances in the brain don’t just need nutrition. Sometimes they need better signaling, such as what homeopathy does for you. Homeopathy can even help you mature. Read some of these great posts on memory, cognition and performance.

Dental Enamel is Improving with Homeopathy!

I must report this one…..My 25 year old granddaughter called. She’s been on the Calcarea fluorica and Calcarea phosphorica faithfully for 3 months. She has been plagued by tooth decay. To make it worse, she was a swimmer all through school- bad for tooth enamel. Today the dentist said her teeth look great and 3 cavity beginnings have not changed. This is good news since her teeth were showing decay and worsening at every previous 6 month dental visit. She also has seemed more grounded and stronger than before,  although I’ve always thought she is a strong kid. She just got engaged and has also been voted teacher of the year in her school district in Swansboro, NC.

This information (homeopathy) is a lifetime GIFT! I’m so grateful.
Thank you.

The Treatment of Acne with Homeopathic Remedies

Acne. Suffer with Conventional Drugs? Or Cure with Homeopathy?

 

Acne (acne rosacea, acne vulgaris, cystic acne, nodulocystic, acne conglobata, scarring, blackheads, whiteheads, papules, comedones, pustules, Acne mechanica/sports induced acne, nodules, zits, pimples)  is an inflammatory skin condition that causes spots to develop on the skin, usually on the face, back and chest. It has been estimated that it can affect 80% of young people between the age of 12 and 24. For teenagers it can cause considerable distress and loss of confidence. The spots vary from surface blackheads and whiteheads to deep, inflamed, pus-filled pustules and cysts, which can be severe, long-lasting, and even leave permanent facial scarring.

Conventional Medical Treatment for Acne

Conventional treatment for acne can prove to be very long-term, and ultimately unsuccessful. If the condition is mild a variety of topical gels and creams, usually containing the chemical benzoyl peroxide, are usually recommended.

 

Benzoyl peroxide can irritate the skin, and made it more sensitive to sunlight. NHS Choices also says that it should be used sparingly, and can have a bleaching effect, “so avoid getting it on your hair or clothes”. The common side effects mentioned a dry and tense skin, a burning, itching or stinging sensation, some redness and peeling of the skin

 

Otherwise, conventional medical advice is to keep the skin clean, and for women, to avoid make-up and cosmetics.

 

When the condition becomes longer-term, or more serious papules and pustules begin to appear, a number of different treatments are used. NHS Choices says that the first treatment is usually a combination of antibiotic tablets, and topical treatments.

 

Topical retinoids such as Tretinoin and Adapalene are used in gel or cream form, but the advice is to use these ‘sparingly’, to avoid ‘excessive expose to sunlight’, and they are not recommended in pregnancy as they cause birth defects. BHS Choices says that the most common side effects are irritation and stinging

 

Topical antibiotics are used to kill the bacteria on the skin, and after a time the treatment is stopped “as there is a risk that the bacteria on your face could become resistant to the antibiotics; which can “make your acne worse and cause additional infections”. The common side effects mentioned are, irritation of the skin, redness and burning of the skin, and peeling of the skin

 

Azelaic acid is used “if the side effects of benzoyl peroxide or topical retinoids are particularly irritating or painful”. It can make the skin sensitive to sunlight, and the common side effects mentioned include burning or stinging skin, itchiness, dry skin and redness of the skin

 

Antibiotic tablets are used to treat more severe acne. Tetracycline antibiotics are used although they are not safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women who are give erythromycin antibiotics instead. The treatment can last as long as 4 to 6 months. The side effects mentioned by NHS Choices are skin sensitivity to sunlight, and making the oral contraceptive less effective.

 

Hormonal therapies are recommended for women who suffer from acne during the time of menstruation. This includes the combined oral contraceptive pill, although NHS Choices warn that the progestogen-only pill, or contraceptive implant can sometimes make acne worse.

 

Co-cyprindiol is described by NHS Choices as a hormonal treatment that can be used for more severe acne that doesn’t respond to antibiotics. NHS Choices describes “a small risk that women taking co-cyprindiol may develop breast cancer in later life”. Also, it says that “there is also a very small chance of co-cyprindiol causing a blood clot”. And again, this drug “is not thought to be safe ….. if you are pregnant or breastfeeding”. Other side effects mentioned are bleeding and spotting between your periods, headaches, sore breasts, mood changes, loss of interest in sex, weight gain or weight loss

 

Isotretinoin (better known as Accutane, or Roaccutane) is also recommended, but NHS Choices states that it can also “cause a wide range of side effects” so it is “only recommended for severe cases of acne that have not responded to other treatments”. Indeed, the side effects are so serious it can only be prescribed by a specially trained GP, or a dermatologist. These side effects include
• inflammation, dryness and cracking of the skin, lips and nostrils
• changes in your blood sugar levels
Moderate acne natural treatment
• inflammation of your eyelids (blepharitis)
• inflammation and irritation of your eyes (conjunctivitis)
• blood in your urine
• inflammation of the liver (hepatitis)
• inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)
• kidney disease

 

NHS Choices also says that Isotretinoin will damage an unborn baby by causing birth defects, and that it is not suitable for women who are breastfeeding. It is also thought (but not admitted by NHS Choices) that it can cause mood changes, such as depression, anxiety, aggression and suicidal thoughts.

Alternative Health Suggestions for an Aging Brain, Pt 3 of 4

Keywords

Aging brain; memory loss, poor memory, pre-senility, early onset dementia, dementia, forgetfulness, comprehension issues, frontal temporal dementia, Alzheimer’s, attention deficit, ADHD, lack of concentration, lack of focus, easily distracted, feeling overwhelmed at dealing with simple tasks, feeling overwhelmed with life, food allergies etc.

 

Let’s recap the highlights from Part 1 and Part 2 of this article

 

In part 1(link), we talked about why it was important to eat food grown organically vs. conventionally grown; I talked of MSG (monosodium glutamate) and how this neurotoxin ruins your memory, cognitive functioning and overall health; and we spoke about why it was incredibly important to avoid eating foods that were genetically modified (GMOs) or contained GMO components. And since there are no global labeling laws for these, the only way to avoid them is by eating an all organic diet, or as a minimum, by at least eating only foods labels as NON-GMO.

 

In Part 2 (link), The topic got a little more serious. I mentioned how Mr. Mueller had coined the term “cell phone dementia” (or had you already forgotten?) I went over why it was so important to reduce, as much as you could, your exposure to microwave radiation from cellphones, cordless phones, WIFI, bluetooth, GPS, cellular towers (masts), Smart meters, etc.

Radiation exposure is cumulative. And don’t forget your smart meters! They are like having a cell phone attached to your house. Replace it. Reduce all forms of wireless communications to help keep that mind of yours sharp as a tack! Go retro! Go wired. I even gave you a long list of SOLUTIONS and alternative ways you could reduce your exposure and still survive in today’s world. Yes, you can survive even if you don’t have that cellphone on you 24/7, I promise!

 

Now in Part 3, let’s talk about a few more ways to help stop premature aging of our brains.

 

Ionizing Radiation & X-rays Age our Brains

 

We are constantly exposed to nuclear (ionizing) radiation (look at this weeks readings!) . Did you know some of the proving symptoms for Radium bromatum (the radiation used for cancer treatments, a form of ionizing radiation) are apprehensiveness, depression, fear of being alone in the dark, a cloudy mind and unable to think clearly! And ionizing radiation such as Plutonium, Uranium, Cesium, etc., causes cancer.

Stay away from unnecessary x-rays, especially dental x-rays (refuse them & offer to sign a waiver) and from unnecessary mammograms. You can use Thermography instead. If you have to be exposed to an x-rays, take a few doses of the homeopathic remedy X-ray 30C afterwards.

Dental Gum Pockets Healed – Homeopathy

“Finally, I just talked to the gal who does my dental cleaning because I wanted to be sure that all of my info is completely accurate. So, here it goes:

For the past year or more, my gum pockets had started getting worse (normal range is between 1-3) and I had 4 teeth that were measured at a number 4 and 1 was a number 5.  If this had continued, I would have had to have a procedure to scrape the tooth root and tighten the gum tissue that holds my teeth.  I started using diluted Calendula Mother Tincture as a mouthwash 5 months before my last dental appointment (I have these appointments for cleaning, etc., every 6 months) and my dental hygienist gal was pleasantly surprised with my clean mouth.

Just because something has become commonplace doesn’t mean it’s healthy or good for us.
Ah, part 2 of how to help your aging brain. First, I’m going to recap some of the symptoms of an aging brain, just to get you pumped up and motivated to read what I’m about to present to you today since you probably won’t like it!

 

Symptoms of an Aging Brain, an incomplete list:

  • Slower comprehension
  • Confusion
  • Difficult concentration
  • Easily distracted
  • Weakness or slowness of memory
  • Cannot remember what you were about to do or say
  • Forgetfulness for short term events
  • Forgetfulness for long term events
  • Lack of or poor focus
  • Short attention span
  • Saying the wrong word or phrase
  • Getting left and right confused
  • Speaking words in the wrong order
  • Garbled speech or thoughts
  • Inability to handle daily tasks such as returning phone calls or emails
  • irritability
  • Mood swings

 

Remember, these “brain malfunctions” have become so commonplace that many people have come to think of them as normal. We now think it’s “normal” that children, teens and twenty-somethings are showing these symptoms and we laugh when it happens when we should be worrying and looking for causes and solutions. Just because something has become commonplace doesn’t mean it’s healthy or good for us.

 

Identifying and Removing Wireless Communications

You may be saying, “Yeah, yeah. Mr. Mueller and his staff keep telling me to reduce my exposure to microwave radiation – to get rid of my cell phone, turn off my WIFI and cordless phones,” but you should keep reading this anyway. You may think you have no choices. You may think you can’t do it or live without it. But every little bit of exposure you can reduce WILL help.

Alternative Health Suggestions for an Aging Brain, Part 1 of 4

We’ve become so concerned with the visible effects of aging that most of us are overlooking the decline of the most important organ that is truly aging before its time – our brain!

 

Do you suffer from any of these complaints:

  • Slower comprehension
  • Confusion
  • Difficult concentration
  • Easily distracted
  • Weakness or slowness of memory
  • Cannot remember what you were about to do or say
  • Forgetfulness for short term events
  • Forgetfulness for long term events
    Just because it has become commonplace doesn’t mean it’s good health!
  • Lack of or poor focus
  • Short attention span
  • Saying the wrong word or phrase
  • Getting left and right confused
  • Speaking words in the wrong order
  • Garbled speech or thoughts

If you are suffering from one or more of these symptoms, then you have some degree of brain aging! These types of “brain malfunctions” have become so commonplace that many think of them as normal. It’s now so “normal” that children, teens and twenty-somethings are showing these symptoms. Just because it has become commonplace doesn’t mean it’s good health

 

In clinic, we hear these complaints from nearly all of our clients. In response, with Mr. Mueller’s help, I have compiled this list that will help you identify/remove/change things in your life which cause your brain to age prematurely.

 

There’s No Shame

First, I feel it’s important to mention that many people feel ashamed at admitting they have memory issues. No one wants to think of themselves as “weak minded”, “mentally ill”, mentally sick or even brain damaged, right? But that very shame you may feel, or even that denial you may have about just how bad your symptoms have become is …JUST A SYMPTOM! A homeopath would use this to help find a remedy to help you…hmm, shame coupled with memory problems and perhaps denial… the homeopathic remedy Lycopodium comes to mind!

Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer: Recipe

Hand sanitizers are, in principle, a good idea. But the ingredients in most commercially available ones contain a toxic soup of chemicals, fragrances, dyes and preservatives. Why put harmful, immune lowering chemicals on your skin – the very same skin which so readily absorbs toxins into your blood stream?! After all, the purpose of hand sanitizer is to help boost your immune system, not burden it!

Essential Oils Are Medicines

With some many “natural” and “organic” varieties of hand sanitizers available now, why would I want to make my own? Because I have been unable to find one that meets both criteria: 1) has nothing in it that I don’t approve of, 2) is reasonably priced and 3) is unscented. I, for one, don’t want any fragrances on my hands, even if they are “natural”! People have become addicted to fragrances in their everyday lives. Most people do not realize HOW scented their households and lives have become until something snaps in their own health and they become chemically sensitive like I did 12 years ago.

Every fragrance can cause symptoms, seen and unseen. For example, Lavender essential oil, which is in SO MANY products these days, has been the subject of a homeopathic proving (like a drug trial or test). What does that mean? it means that people have noticed symptoms when using lavender and the homeopathic proving set out to find out EXACTLY what kinds of symptoms this substance could elicit!

Lavender, as with most essential oils, is a medicine. Reactions to any substance are dose dependent. The larger the dose, the more symptoms. And, as my final injection of homeopathic tennets goes – everyone has their individual sensitivities. Some people are more sensitive, some people are more robust! And then let’s not forget people’s peculiar sensitivities…all of these things – dose, sensitivities and peculiarities – will determine if and when someone reacts (get symptoms) from a peculiar substance.

Why Buy “Natural” Diapers

Before the birth of our first child, my husband and I decided to use cloth diapers. Not only would cloth diapers create no landfill waste, but they had no chemicals or fragrances in them – a healthy choice for a healthy baby! Although I wasn’t keen on the idea of having even more laundry to keep up with, I thought it was worth the effort. However, fate had a different plan.

 

After a 44 hour labor followed by a c-section, my body felt wrecked. (Unlike many, this surgery was medically necessary, but that is a story for another blog!) For more than six weeks, I was unable to carry my new baby girl while walking. In my disabled state, the high maintenance of cloth diapers was simply no longer an option. So, for the first few weeks, we continued to outfit our sweet bundle in whatever disposable diapers they had given us in the hospital. But I knew that I absolutely didn’t want her to be in the “conventional” diapers like Pampers, Loves or Huggies for the long-term.

 

What We Noticed

Our brand new baby girl immediately had problems with diaper rash. Constant problems. Her poor bottom would have tender red spots that sometimes merged into a large solid “beet-red” area. It hurt her to be wiped. She got to the point where she would squirm when I tried to put a new diaper on her. After a month of this, I decided there had to be another, better way.
