Some peace while putting the pieces together

I am creating this at the new coffee shop in town. The owner and I just talked about a concept we're calling a "bright ripple". The bright ripple starts with one, builds to two, and keeps growing. It's positive action growing exponentially until it creates a tsunami of bright beauty and chases off the dark. Everyone get your boards and surf the ripple!

The Greatest Gift...

you can give yourself this year is a copy of Alison Adams’s Chronic Fatigue, ME, and Fibromyalgia. While I felt this the first time I read my copy, my second reading assured me. There is absolutely no better manual written for dealing with Morgellons Disease!

Alison primarily shares her own story of recovery (from mercury toxicity related symptoms) along with the narrow alleys and highways within our internal environment. She knows this subject up and down as a sufferer and also a medical professional. I have the greatest respect for her sharing!

The book cost about $16US—that’s approximately the cost of driving to the theater, paying for your ticket, and getting a large popcorn and drink. While the movie has the potential of entertaining you for a couple of hours, this book is certain to open your eyes to conquering issues of toxicity (and, with persistence, giving you your life back or, as Alison shares, true health for the first time).

While the book certainly lends to the argument of Morgellons being a form of mercury toxicity, I found the personal account of Alison’s encounters with the medical world equally enlightening (and shades of my own experiences as well as many, many other Morgellons sufferers). She is a kindred soul, of this I’m certain.

Her website is found in my Morgellons links (top one) and has plenty of worthwhile information (as do all of the links). Give yourself the gift of this book. None of us are alone and, as more and more share on recovery from toxicity, we can benefit from following the path created by one who has journeyed through the bramble of the jungle.

The Happiest of New Years!!

Erasing Panic

The Barrier Theory presents the cause and progression of Morgellons Disease as internal biochemistry changing inorganic species of mercury to organic species (and thus allowing passage beyond the Blood/Brain Barrier). I presented this on Pam Crane’s blog talk radio show and then had it formally published in the medical journal Explore! (vol. 20.5 (2011)). In addition to the theory I suggest Morgellons occurs on a spectrum of less spectacular symptoms to more severe. Heavy metals, such as mercury, block neurotransmissions and cause depression and panic attacks. I guess this paragraph is meant to introduce the topic of panic with the suggestion of one solution.

Not to sound too random, but I once witnessed acupuncture used to treat a lame horse. Within fifteen minutes of treatment, the lame horse was prancing around the pasture. I guess it has always been my best example of- acupuncture isn’t hocus-pocus; it really works!

My neighbor and good friend Linda is an acupuncturist and expert on Chinese medicine. She mentioned treating panic attacks with wrist bands. “They’re used for motion sickness, but they work for panic too,” she said. Of course I was intrigued. I went to the local health food store yesterday and purchased some (called Sea-Band and cost around $10). The bands have little plastic numbs which you align with the acupressure point on your wrist between the central tendons and down 1 1/2 thumb widths from the wrist crease(the company suggest using two, but Linda tells me you only need one). Twenty minutes of wearing them seems to take edge off any panic (I had some confrontations yesterday and think they may have helped), though I suppose you could wear them all the time.

Stress and panic make your internal environment more acidic. I drink a big glass of water with lemon in it first thing in the morning (followed by a glass of water with bentonite clay) to make my insides less acidic (funny how lemons and lime, which seem to be entirely acidic, act in the opposite way when our stomachs are empty). Meditation and pray ease the mind and spirit. The more we do to take care of ourselves, the more we open doors to our health and well-being.

The final form of my novel Beul Nam Beinn is in the capable hands of my editor. I hope to see it out in print form by the end of January (and I hope you are pleased with the dedication). Happy holidays and let us all move into a New Year full of health and happiness! Joe
