Ahiflower oil provides a balanced ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids to maintain optimal health

(Natural News) Omega fatty acids are healthy fats that can provide numerous health benefits. Since your body can’t produce these dietary fats, you need to consume a balanced ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids to maintain optimal health. Fatty fish are loaded with essential fatty acids, so incorporating these healthy fats into your diet shouldn’t…

Gardasil Vaccine Found To Increase Cervical Cancer Risk By 44.6% In Women Already Exposed To HPV

A not from Children’s Health Defense:

Several weeks ago our Chairman, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., participated in a debate about vaccines with Dr. Robert Riewerts from Kaiser Permanente. Last week we published “Chickenpox: The Dirty Dozen Facts You Should Know Before Vaccinating” to correct some of Dr. Riewerts erroneous statements about the varicella vaccine for chickenpox. This week, Mr. Kennedy is clearing up some of the confusion with the facts about the Gardasil vaccine for HPV. The show will air in mid-October.]

In our September 18th debate for Spectrum TV, Kaiser’s Chief of Pediatrics, Dr. Robert Riewerts, parroted Pharma’s popular canard that the Gardasil vaccine has eliminated cervical cancer in Australia—the first country to mandate the jab. This is false.

Slide 1: Table 17 from Merck’s own clinical studies.

The table shows that Gardasil actually increases the risk of cervical cancer by a terrifying 44.6% among women who were exposed to HPV infection prior to vaccination. If anyone ever bullies you to take Gardasil, look up “Gardasil Vaccine Insert” on your cell phone to see all of the adverse events and show them this table. [From original BLA. Study 013 CSR. Table 11-88, p. 636]

 

Slide 2: 34% of children ages 2-10 have HPV infection due to non-sexual transmission.

This data shows that nearly HALF OF ALL WOMEN HAVE HAD PRIOR EXPOSURE TO HPV—with 38% being exposed before age 10. (which puts them at an increase of developing cancer if they have the HPV vaccine.) [Journal of Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology, 29(3):228-233, June 2016.]

Slide 3: The results of pap-smears before the pre-vaccination period.

Pap smears drove the dramatic decline of cervical cancer prior to the introduction of Gardasil in four countries. During the 1989-2007 period, the incidence of invasive cervical cancer declined continuously in all countries with pap screening.

Slides 4-8 show a dramatic reversal in that downward trend following the introduction of HPV vaccine (Gardasil). Oncologist Dr. Gerard Delepine, his wife Dr. Nicole Delepine, also a physician, and a team of researchers plotted these graphs from publicly available health data.

Slide 4: Cervical cancer increase in Australia following vaccine introduction.

Research tracks the INCREASE in cervical cancer in Australia following Gardasil’s introduction.

Slide 5: Cervical cancer increase in Sweden following the start of HPV vaccination campaign.

The same trend as Australia is seen in Sweden. The incidence of invasive cancer climbed from 2011, two years after vaccination campaign. [Graph published by Nordcan 2019 05 29.]

Slide 6: Cervical cancer increase in Norway following the beginning of HPV vaccine campaign.

Norway research shows a similar pattern as Sweden and United Kingdom. [Graph published by Nordcan 2019 05 29.]

Slide 7: Cervical cancer increase in the United Kingdom following the start of the HPV vaccination program.

The United Kingdom also shows a similar pattern. In the vaccinated age group, the incidence of cancer jumped in 2011, three years after the start of the campaign. [Graphic from Cancer Research UK]

Slide 8: Trends of incidence of invasive cervical cancer in France during first years of vaccination.

France has low Gardasil uptake and is the only of these nations where cervical cancer continues to decline. [Graph from International Agency for Research on Cancer, World Health Organization.]

The correlation between Gardasil uptake and increase in cervical cancer is just that—a correlation—not proof of causation. Only robust science—not name-calling or censorship—can answer whether, and why, Gardasil may be causing an increase in cervical cancer. Let’s ask social media titans to stop broadcasting Pharma’s propaganda and censoring open debate. Let’s demand that Pharma’s spokespeople support their claims with science.

The WHO and UNICEF just admitted Natural News was right all along: Polio outbreaks really are caused by polio vaccines

(Natural News) After nearly two decades of having been declared “polio free” by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Philippines is now experiencing its first polio outbreak in 19 years – and authorities are actually admitting that the cause was the polio vaccine itself! Health Secretary Francisco Duque III announced at a recent press conference…

Do Plant-Based Meals Risk Brain and Nutrient Deficiencies?

Many health organizations recommend plant-based diets as good for people and the planet, and it’s true that most could benefit greatly from adding more vegetables to their diets. However, there are risks involved when you move from eating a diet rich in plant foods to one that is strictly plant based.

Nutrient deficiencies not only are possible with a strict plant-based diet but probable, depending on your diet, with choline being among them. Choline, a B vitamin known for its role in brain development, is an essential nutrient that humans must get from dietary or supplement sources.

Animal foods are a major contributor of choline to the diet, and Emma Derbyshire, director of Nutritional Insight, a consultant firm specializing in nutrition and health science, suggested in BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health that the increasing tend toward plant-based diets could be leading to a potential “choline crisis.”1

Why Choline Is Important

While your liver produces small amounts of choline, it’s not enough to meet the demands your body has for this essential nutrient, making additional dietary sources critical. Your body uses choline to keep your cell membranes functioning properly and it plays a role in nerve communications. Derbyshire explained:2

“Physiologically, choline is critical for a number of functions across the life cycle which include wide-ranging roles in human metabolism from neurotransmitter synthesis to cell structure and methylation, with choline deficiency being linked to liver disease, offspring cognitive function and potential neurological disorders.

Functionally choline in its oxidised form (the metabolite glycine betaine) contributes to S-adenosylmethionine synthesis – a chief methyl donor involved in DNA and histone methylation which play a central role in regulating gene expression and potentially modulating brain function.

Choline also influences liver function, with shortfalls linked to defective lipoprotein metabolism, abnormal phospholipid synthesis and oxidative damage.”

During pregnancy, choline is transported to the fetus and plays a role in cognitive development and outcomes. “This nutrient is particularly critical during fetal development as it modifies brain and spinal cord structure (via apoptosis and stem cell proliferation) influencing the risk of lifelong memory function and possible risk of neural tube defects,” Derbyshire wrote.3

Even in adulthood, people with higher choline intakes were shown to have better cognitive performance, doing better on tests of verbal and visual memory, than those with low intake.4 In fact, some of the symptoms associated with low choline levels include memory problems and persistent brain fog.

Choline is still being explored, and research continues to uncover new roles for this nutrient. Among them, emerging evidence suggests choline may be an epigenetic modifier of the genome, altering “gene methylation, expression and cellular function.”5 If levels are low during fetal development and infancy, it may have a lifelong effect, altering memory function and stress-related disorders later in life.

Choline also appears to be a key controlling factor in preventing the development of fatty liver by enhancing secretion of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles in your liver,6 required to safely transport fat out of your liver.

Most People Don’t Get Enough Choline

According to a study published in the journal Nutrients, only 8% of U.S. adults are getting enough choline (including only 8.5 percent of pregnant women) by meeting the Institute of Medicine’s Adequate Intake (AI) level of 550 milligrams (mg) a day for men and 425 mg/day for women (this rises to 450 mg/day during pregnancy and 550 mg/day while breastfeeding).7,8

There is evidence that people with certain genetic factors may require even more intake than other individuals, which could mean that even more people are at risk of low choline.

As noted by Derbyshire, “[A] growing body of evidence exists suggesting that choline requirements may depend on the presence of several genotypes and that individuals with these could well have choline requirements higher than current recommended intakes.”9

Animal Foods Are a Primary Source of Choline

Based on unit weight, animal foods contain more choline than plant sources, with beef, eggs and salmon among the most concentrated sources.10 Further, in Europeans, the main food groups contributing choline to the diet were meat, milk, grain, eggs and their derived products and fish.11 Yet, even with these foods, most of the population groups had average choline intake below the AI level.

Research has also found that eating eggs is one of the best ways to improve choline intake, and it’s difficult to get enough of this essential nutrient if you don’t consume them. According to a study published in the journal Nutrients,12 among egg consumers more than 57% met the AI levels for choline, compared to just 2.4% of people who consumed no eggs.

The researchers concluded that it’s “extremely difficult” to get enough choline unless you eat eggs or take a dietary supplement. Another study, this one published in the British Journal of Nutrition, found that the main dietary sources of choline among pregnant and lactating women in Canada were dairy products, eggs and meat.13

Women who consumed at least one egg daily not only had higher choline intake overall but were two to eight times more likely to meet choline intake recommendations compared to women who did not consume eggs.14

Trends Toward Plant-Based Diets Could Harm Choline Intake

Derbyshire noted that choline is largely overlooked in the U.K., being excluded from U.K. food composition databases, major dietary surveys and dietary guidelines. She wrote:15

“The mounting evidence of choline’s importance makes it essential that it does not continue to be overlooked in the UK. This is now more important than ever given that accelerated food trends towards plant-based diets/veganism could have further ramifications on choline intake/status.

… Eggs, milk and meat appear to be major dietary providers and further movements away from the consumption of these could have unintended consequences for choline intake/status … More needs to be done to educate health care professionals and consumers about the importance of a choline-rich diet and how to achieve this.

… If choline is not obtained in the levels needed from dietary sources per se then supplementation strategies will be required, especially in relation to key stages of the life-cycle such as pregnancy, when choline intakes are critical to infant development.”

This isn’t new advice. In 2009, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill expressed concern that choline intakes were far below the AI level and suggested “dietary guidance should be developed to encourage the intake of choline-rich foods.” Again, they noted eggs and meat as “rich sources of choline in the North American diet, providing up to 430 milligrams per 100 grams.”16

Healthy Sources of Choline

As mentioned, organic, pastured eggs are one of the best sources of choline you can eat. One hard-boiled egg may contain 147 mg of choline.17 Make sure to eat the yolk, where this nutrient is concentrated. Other healthy choline sources include:

Wild-caught Alaskan salmon

Krill oil — One 2011 study found 69 choline-containing phospholipids in krill oil, including 60 phosphatidylcholine substances, which helps protect against liver disease (including hepatitis and cirrhosis in alcoholics), reduce digestive tract inflammation and lessen symptoms associated with ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome18

Organic pastured chicken

Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus

Shiitake mushroom

Grass fed beef liver

While some believe most people get enough choline from their diets and deficiency only occurs in rare cases, it’s important to identify your choline food sources to determine whether your intake is sufficient to meet your daily needs. This is especially true if you follow a strict vegetarian or vegan diet, in which case supplementation may be necessary.

Plant-Based Diets Linked to Depression

While many people choose to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet for health reasons, research following vegetarianism may be associated with depression. In a study of 9,668 vegetarian (including a small number of vegan) men, vegetarians were nearly twice as likely to suffer from depression as meat eaters, even after adjusting for variables like job status, family history and number of children.19

The study couldn’t show causation, but it did have a number of theories for why the association may exist. The association may exist because people with depression may be more likely to change their dietary preferences, or it could be related to higher blood levels of phytoestrogens, particularly among those who eat a lot of soy, or even pesticides, a consequence of consuming a lot of nonorganic produce, the researchers said.

But, more likely, it has to do with nutrient levels. Vegetarians tend to have lower intakes of omega-3 fats, vitamin B12 and folate, which could affect depression risk. Vegans or strict vegetarians who abstain from animal products and do not supplement their diet with vitamin B12 may become deficient and may face increased risks of neuropsychiatric and neurological problems as a result.

When 100 vegetarians were compared to 100 omnivores, the vegetarians had significantly lower B12 levels as well as increased rates of depression, peripheral neuropathy, paresthesias (pins and needles sensation) and psychosis.20

Obsessive-compulsive disorder has also been linked to B12 deficiency (and elevated homocysteine).21 Neurological problems, in particular, are a possibility even at the “low normal” range at or just below 258 picomoles per liter (pmol/L). A level of 148 pmol/L or less is considered a deficiency state. As noted by the USDA:22

“Deficiency can cause a type of anemia marked by fewer but larger red blood cells. It can also cause walking and balance disturbances, a loss of vibration sensation, confusion and, in advanced cases, dementia. The body requires B12 to make the protective coating surrounding the nerves. So, inadequate B12 can expose nerves to damage.”

Eating a plant-rich diet is generally excellent for your health, but if you’re a strict vegetarian or vegan, be sure you make a point to supplement where needed, including for choline, omega-3s, folate and vitamin B12.

Even if you’re not following a plant-based diet, ensuring your choline intake is optimal by consuming organic pastured eggs and other healthy choline-rich foods will go a long way toward protecting your mental and overall health.

How Gait Analysis Can Be Used to Diagnose Dementia Type

Like autism among children, Alzheimer’s among seniors has reached epidemic proportions, currently affecting an estimated 5.8 million Americans.1 Alzheimer’s disease, which is the most common form of dementia, eventually leads to the inability to carry out even the most basic of bodily functions, including walking.

Now, researchers claim they’ve discovered that gait analysis can in fact be used as a quick way to identify the type of dementia an individual has.2,3,4 This tool can be quite useful for clinicians trying to reach a diagnosis to work out a treatment plan.

Gait Analysis Helps Diagnose Dementia Type

The research,5 published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia, shows patients with Alzheimer’s disease and Lewy body dementia — two conditions that are difficult to differentiate in their early stages — have distinct gait patterns that relate to the subtle yet unique neurological differences between the two conditions.

As noted by lead researcher Ríona McArdle, a postdoctoral researcher at Newcastle University’s Faculty of Medical Sciences,6 “The way we walk can reflect changes in thinking and memory that highlight problems in our brain, such as dementia.”

Importantly, Lewy body dementia can be a sign of Parkinson’s disease, and the earlier a correct diagnosis is made, the sooner a patient can receive appropriate treatment.

By analyzing 16 different gait characteristics of 110 participants — 29 who did not have a neurological problem, 36 diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and 45 diagnosed with Lewy body dementia — they discovered those with Lewy body dementia vary the step length more than do people with Alzheimer’s, and have greater step time asymmetry.

The irregularity of their walking pattern puts patients with Lewy body dementia at increased risk for falls. While the gait of Alzheimer’s patients was more regular and symmetrical than those with Lewy body dementia, it was still more impaired in terms of pace and step variability than that of healthy controls. According to the authors:7

“Executive dysfunction explained 11% of variance for gait variability in LBD [Lewy body dementia], whereas global cognitive impairment explained 13.5% of variance in AD [Alzheimer’s disease]; therefore, gait impairments may reflect disease-specific cognitive profiles.”

As reported by Science Daily:8

“Scientists found that analyzing both step length variability and step time asymmetry could accurately identify 60% of all dementia subtypes — which has never been shown before …

It is a first significant step towards establishing gait as a clinical biomarker for various subtypes of the disease and could lead to improved treatment plans for patients … Further work will aim to identify how these characteristics enhance current diagnostic procedures, and assess their feasibility as a screening method … “

Gait Disorders Are Common in Dementia

This wasn’t the first time the idea that gait differences might serve as a diagnostic tool has been flouted. A study9 published in the journal Neuropsychiatric Diseases and Treatment in 2008 discussed the potential of gait analysis, stating:

“Gait disorders are more prevalent in dementia than in normal aging and are related to the severity of cognitive decline. Dementia-related gait changes (DRGC) mainly include decrease in walking speed provoked by a decrease in stride length and an increase in support phase.

More recently, dual-task related changes in gait were found in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and non-Alzheimer dementia, even at an early stage. An increase in stride-to-stride variability while usual walking and dual-tasking has been shown to be more specific and sensitive than any change in mean value in subjects with dementia.

Those data show that DRGC are not only associated to motor disorders but also to problem with central processing of information and highlight that dysfunction of temporal and frontal lobe may in part explain gait impairment among demented subjects.

Gait assessment, and more particularly dual-task analysis, is therefore crucial in early diagnosis of dementia and/or related syndromes in the elderly. Moreover, dual-task disturbances could be a specific marker of falling at a pre-dementia stage.”

Other Telltale Signs of Dementia and Alzheimer’s

Aside from changes in gait, other early warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease include:10

Memory loss that disrupts daily life — One example includes repeatedly asking the same question

Finding it challenging to plan and problem solve

Having trouble completing familiar tasks such as navigating to a well-known location

Confusion with time and/or place — For example, forgetting how you got to where you are

Vision problems and difficulty judging spatial relationships or distance

Having trouble following conversations and/or struggling with vocabulary, such as not being able to name a known object

Misplacing items and being unable to retrace steps

Declining judgment — For example, exhibiting poor financial judgment or ignoring personal grooming

Withdrawing from social contact

Mood and personality changes — Examples include increased confusion, suspicion, depression, fearfulness and anxiety

Understanding the Cause of Alzheimer’s

While there is no conventional cure for Alzheimer’s, a number of lifestyle strategies show promise for preventing and slowing down its progression. Dr. Dale Bredesen, director of neurodegenerative disease research at the UCLA School of Medicine, discusses these alternatives in his book, “The End of Alzheimer’s: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline.”

If you missed my interview with him, I highly recommend viewing it now (for the full interview, see the original article, linked above). Bredesen has identified more than four dozen variables that can have a significant influence on Alzheimer’s, but at the heart of it all is mitochondrial dysfunction.

This makes sense when you consider that your mitochondria are instrumental in producing the energy currency in your body, and without energy, nothing will work properly — especially your brain, being the most energy-demanding organ in your body.

Your mitochondria are also where a majority of harmful free radicals are generated, so when your lifestyle choices produce higher amounts of free radicals, dysfunctions in mitochondria are to be expected. Knowing this, it makes sense that in order for a prevention strategy or treatment to be effective, it needs to address the underlying mitochondrial dysfunction.

Beta-Amyloid Generation Is a Protective Mechanism

A hallmark of Alzheimer’s is the accumulation of beta-amyloid in your brain.11 Importantly, Bredesen’s work sheds light on why amyloid is created in the first place. Amyloid production is actually a protective response to different types of insults, each of which is related to a specific subtype of Alzheimer’s. As explained by Bredesen in our 2017 interview:

“If you’ve got inflammation, you are making amyloid because … it is a very effective endogenous antimicrobial. [I]n that case, it’s not really a disease … [It’s] a falling apart of the system. You’re making amyloid because you’re fighting microbes, because you’re … inflamed, because you are decreased in your trophic support (insulin resistance, and so on) or because [you’re toxic].

Guess what amyloid does beautifully? It binds toxins like metals, mercury and copper. It’s very clear you’re making [amyloid] to protect yourself. It’s all well and good if you want to remove it, but make sure to remove the inducer of it before you remove it. Otherwise, you’re putting yourself at risk.”

The program Bredesen developed is a comprehensive approach that addresses the many variables of Alzheimer’s at their roots. Interestingly, if you have the ApoE4 gene, which increases your risk for Alzheimer’s, you would be wise to implement intermittent fasting or do longer fasts every now and then.

In fact, this gene appears to be a strong clinical indication that you need to fast on a regular basis to avoid Alzheimer’s. The reason for this is because the ApoE4 gene helps your body survive famine. Unfortunately, it also promotes inflammation. Fasting appears to help cancel out this inflammatory proclivity.

Alzheimer’s Screening Tests

Bredesen also recommends a number of screening tests to help tailor a personalized treatment protocol. For example, if you have insulin resistance, you want to improve your insulin sensitivity. If you have inflammation, then you’ll work on removing the source of the proinflammatory effect. If your iron is elevated, you’ll want to donate blood to lower it, and so on.

Preventive Lifestyle Strategies

It’s important to realize that dementia, including Alzheimer’s, is largely a preventable disease, predicated on lifestyle choices that enhance mitochondrial function.

In 2014, Bredesen published a paper that demonstrates the power of lifestyle choices for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s. By leveraging 36 healthy lifestyle parameters, he was able to reverse Alzheimer’s in 9 of 10 patients.

This included the use of exercise, ketogenic diet, optimizing vitamin D and other hormones, increasing sleep, meditation, detoxification and eliminating gluten and processed food. You can download Bredesen’s full-text case paper online, which details the ReCODE program.12

Following are lifestyle-based suggestions — many of which are included in Bredesen’s treatment protocol — that can boost your mitochondrial health and lower your risk of dementia.

Dietary Strategies

As a base, avoid processed foods of all kinds as they contain a number of ingredients harmful to your brain, including refined sugar, processed fructose, grains (particularly gluten), vegetable oils, genetically engineered ingredients and pesticides like glyphosate.

Opting for organic produce and grass fed or pastured animal products will help you avoid synthetic pesticides and herbicides. Opting for grass fed meat may also lower your risk of Alzheimer’s by lowering your risk of eating prion-contaminated meat, which some research suggests can trigger the disease. More details can be found in “Study Claims Alzheimer’s Is a Double-Prion Disorder.”

Ideally, keep your added sugar level to a minimum and your total fructose below 25 grams per day, or as low as 15 grams per day if you already have insulin/leptin resistance or any related disorders. You can learn more about the importance of limiting sugar in “Link Between Sugar and Alzheimer’s Strengthens.”

Most will also benefit from a gluten-free diet, as gluten makes your gut more permeable, which allows proteins to get into your bloodstream where they sensitize your immune system and promote inflammation and autoimmunity, both of which play a role in the development of Alzheimer’s.

As you limit refined carbohydrates, replace the lost calories with healthy fats. Contrary to popular belief, the ideal fuel for your brain is not glucose, but ketones, which are produced when your body converts fat into energy.

Healthy fats to add to your diet include avocados, butter, organic pastured egg yolks, coconuts and coconut oil, grass fed meats and raw nuts such as pecans and macadamia.

Avoid all trans fats or hydrogenated fats that have been modified in such a way to extend their longevity on the grocery store shelf. This includes margarine, vegetable oils and various butter-like spreads.

By avoiding processed foods, you’re also improving your gut microbiome, which is an important piece of the puzzle. To improve it further, be sure to eat traditionally fermented and cultured foods, along with a high-quality probiotic if needed, and avoid antibiotics, antibacterial products and fluoridated water.

Certain nutrients have also been shown to be of particular importance. Among them: marine-based omega-3 fats, choline, phosphatidylserine, acetyl-L-carnitine, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. You can learn more about these in “Top 9 Nutrients for Better Brain Health.”

Research also suggests magnesium threonate has the power to rejuvenate aging brains. Sulforaphane is yet another nutrient (found in broccoli and other cruciferous veggies) shown to help prevent Alzheimer’s, in part by inhibiting the generation and accumulation of amyloid-beta, and in part by reducing oxidative stress and neuroinflammation.

Lastly, intermittent fasting is a powerful tool to jump-start your body into remembering how to burn fat and repair the insulin/leptin resistance that is a primary contributing factor for Alzheimer’s.

Avoid Risky Medicines

While mitochondrial dysfunction is typically caused by a longstanding pattern of poor diet and lifestyle choices, certain medications can also raise your risk of Alzheimer’s rather significantly.

Most flu vaccines contain neurotoxic mercury and aluminum, making them a risky choice for many, especially on an annual basis. Statins and anticholinergic drugs are also known to increase your risk for dementia.

Anticholinergic drugs block acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter. These drugs include certain nighttime pain relievers, antihistamines, sleep aids, certain antidepressants, medications to control incontinence and certain narcotic pain relievers.

Research13 shows using benzodiazepines such as Valium, Xanax and Ativan for anxiety or insomnia longer than three months raises your risk of dementia by 51%. This is most likely because these drugs actually worsen your sleep quality, which then contributes to Alzheimer’s. You can learn more about this in “Common OTC Drugs Can Cause Dementia.”

Statin drugs are also problematic because they suppress the synthesis of cholesterol, deplete your brain of coenzyme Q10, vitamin K2 and neurotransmitter precursors, and prevent adequate delivery of essential fatty acids and fat-soluble antioxidants to your brain by inhibiting the production of the indispensable carrier biomolecule known as low-density lipoprotein.

Sun and Daily Activity Do Your Brain Good

Research shows people living in northern latitudes have higher rates of death from dementia and Alzheimer’s than those living in sunnier areas, suggesting vitamin D and/or sun exposure are important factors.

Sufficient vitamin D is imperative for proper functioning of your immune system to combat inflammation associated with Alzheimer’s. If you are unable to get sufficient amounts of sun exposure, make sure to take daily supplemental vitamin D3 to reach and maintain a blood level between 60 and 80 nanograms per milliliter.

Sun exposure is also important for reasons unrelated to vitamin D. Your brain responds to the near-infrared light in sunlight in a process called photobiomodulation.

Research shows near-infrared stimulation of the brain boosts cognition and reduces symptoms of Alzheimer’s, including more advanced stages of the disease. Delivering near-infrared light to the compromised mitochondria synthesizes gene transcription factors that trigger cellular repair, and your brain is one of the most mitochondrial-dense organs in your body.

Exercise and daily nonexercise movement are other important puzzle pieces. It’s been suggested that exercise can trigger a change in the way the amyloid precursor protein is metabolized,14 thus, slowing down the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s.

Exercise also increases levels of the protein PGC-1 alpha. Research has shown that people with Alzheimer’s have less PGC-1 alpha in their brains and cells that contain more of the protein produce less of the toxic amyloid protein associated with Alzheimer’s.

Excess sitting is associated with an increased risk of many diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and neurological diseases, so make it a point to stand up and walk as often as possible.

Stress, Sleep and Mental Stimulation

Another factor to address is stress. Researchers have found stress activates neural and endocrine pathways that have negative impacts on neurodegenerative diseases.15 One of my favorite stress-busting tools is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).

Similarly, sleep deprivation can cause brain damage and may accelerate the onset of Alzheimer’s by impeding your brain’s ability to clear out toxins and waste,16 so make sure you’re getting consistently high quality sleep.

Mental stimulation is also important, especially learning something new, such as learning to play an instrument or to speak a new language. Researchers suspect that mental challenge helps to build up your brain,17 making it less susceptible to the lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

Avoid Toxic Exposures

Lastly, you’ll want to avoid toxic exposures, and address any toxicities you may already have. Dental amalgam fillings are some of the major sources of heavy metal toxicity; however, you should be healthy before having them removed.

Once you have adjusted to following the diet described in my optimized nutrition plan, you can follow the mercury detox protocol and then find a biological dentist to have your amalgams removed.

Aluminum is another heavy metal that wreaks havoc on neural health. Common sources of aluminum include antiperspirants, nonstick cookware and vaccine adjuvants.

A lesser-known toxic influence is electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation from cellphones and other wireless technologies.18,19 The primary pathology behind EMF damage is caused by the reactive nitrogen species peroxynitrites,20 which damage your mitochondria.

Increased peroxynitrite generation has also been associated with autonomic hormonal dysfunction and increased levels of systemic inflammation by triggering cytokine storms.

Martin Pall, Ph.D., has published a review21 in the Journal of Neuroanatomy showing how microwave radiation from cellphones, Wi-Fi routers, computers and tablets (when not in airplane mode) is clearly associated with many neuropsychiatric disorders, including Alzheimer’s.

To reduce your risk, limit your exposure to wireless technology. Simple measures include turning your Wi-Fi off at night, not carrying your cellphone on your body and not keeping portable phones, cellphones and other electric devices in your bedroom.

I also strongly recommend turning off the electricity to your bedroom at the circuit breaker every night. This will radically lower electric and magnetic fields while you sleep. This will help you get better, more sound sleep, allowing your brain to detoxify and cleanse itself out each night.

Kp Message 10-10-19… “Getting through it”

Very short message here. I’ve been with parents and local friends for two full days now, and it appears my mother is improving, at least slightly. I’m reserving details, but there is a definite improvement, even after one day. Have to take one day at a time.

My father was alone for a few days after she went to the hospital, but seems more at peace now that I’ve arrived. I’m helping around the house.

We’ll see where this goes, but I send my deep gratitude and love to all who have shared (and are sharing) their Light, Love, and Prayers with all of us.

Aloha, Kp

Still More for the [Misled] Flag Officers:


By Anna Von Reitz

Well, you are not all misled, just some of you.  And it is to you Misled Fellows that this is addressed.  

Here’s the accusation: 

She is again obfuscating the facts about what the founding docs really were/are. The King’s founding and the foundations America was built on (follow the money please)  was just a business venture documented in the 1606 First Virginia Charter of claims and was never canceled.   Virginia received three charters1606, another in 1609, and the third in 1612. The differences among the three charters lie primarily in the territorial jurisdiction of the COMPANY. He who owns the most land wins. He needed Real Currency so he claimed a share of all the Gold, Silver and Copper found in America by his surveyors and all that would mine for it. These shares would be passed on to his heirs in perpetuity. A good conquest businessman he was to even take care of his future family members. And all at the expense of the Native Americans.   

Here’s the answer: 

Of course, the colonization was a business venture.  Of course, the Virginia Company and the New England (Bedford) Company and several others as well were chartered by the King of the Commonwealth and other European Monarchs as well.  So what?  

The private business dealings underlying that progress has nothing whatsoever to do with the public business of our government as of 1776, other than the fact that the private British business interests were preserved by the Definitive Treaty of Paris, 1783, and again, all within the British Territorial Government doing business as “the” United States of America, operating “in our name” under our specific delegation of powers.  

There’s nothing exotic about any of this.  The actual entities being referenced are clear throughout all the documents and the nomenclature is both specific and consistent throughout.  Our country and our Federation of States has a Proper Name.  That Proper Name is: The United States of America.  

There is also “the” United States of America, which is the British Territorial Government doing business “in our name” and functioning under our delegated authority.  That government functioned as a business which was later, by 1856, incorporated as “the” UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  

And again, so what?  

All that is about British corporations chartered to do private business and make investments in the New World and they were allowed to continue to function in their own Territorial jurisdiction even after The War of Independence.  If you bother to read the first few pages of “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probably Cause” you will find that I years ago described this situation and what everyone got out of it.  

It simply doesn’t have anything to do with our actual government and our actual country, The United States of America.  

The King is Arch-Treasurer of “the” United States of America, not The United States of America.  

Get it through your head. 

And though they are very similar names, as any lawyer worth their salt can tell you, “The United States of America” is a very different beastie than “the” United States of America. 

Here’s the accusation: 

That’s it! Except as a CYA Act the Congress agreed 1789 no one shall take an oath to ” the Constitution for the United States of America” because the United States of America was hi$.  

And here’s the answer: 

No, again. As I explained yesterday, there are three (3) different Constitutions with three (3) different names.  

The one passed in 1787 is the Original Equity Contract and Federal Constitution. 

The one passed in 1789 is the British Territorial Constitution.  Therefore it makes perfect sense that the 1789 version included the prohibition against taking an oath to the 1787 Constitution, and also, the 1789 Constitution included the Federal Judiciary Act, allowing the Territorial Government to have Sea Jurisdiction Courts. 

Until you get your heads out of your pockets and realize that you are dealing with three different governments all operating on our shores, each providing different governmental services, you will be left making stupid assumptions.  

The Constitution for the united States of America–1787– (American Service Provider).  

The Constitution of the United States of America – 1789 — (British Territorial Service Provider). 

The Constitution of the United States – 1790 – (Municipal Service Provider). 

Do you think they created all three of these separate documents and passed them over a period of four (4) years for no reason?  

Whenever you see “the” United States of America or the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, they are talking about the British Territorial entities and the British Territorial United States —- meaning the Insular States and Possessions. 

Absolutely none of this is talking about our actual country or the States or its civilian government at all. 

Here’s the accusation: 

The only thing  I may add is basic contract law is simple the articles were overwritten ie replaced by the new Contract ie Constitution. In international law a sovereign needs another sovereign to co-sign so the articles agreed to the change in terms to be able to conduct commerce internationally which was needed at the time to pay off debts.. Classic case of those with power writing a one-sided contract. 

And here’s the answer: 

The Articles of Confederation were never “overwritten”, and neither for that matter was anything else.  The entities involved had no such powers.  The States of America ceased to function in the wake of the Civil War.  They were American business entities operated by the actual States and thanks to British betrayal and duplicity, the American States never “reconstructed” these businesses. Until now. 

Here’s the accusation: 

Further, the names she uses are not even used on official docs nor internal ones. And all the capacities, characters and conditions she speaks of, not one is explicitly authorized. Sounds like she is actually doing PR that jailed Heather tried floating, as well the one who claimed she was in Illuminati, I and broke free. We did what we did because the Creator asked us to be evil so that you may see good. Remember, SHE came out initially saying it was all fraud. We were born free. 

And here’s the answer: 

You are just too ignorant to know what the documents are or what they say. The language and the nomenclature is absolutely consistent in all the Federal Constitutions.  The entities are named throughout the Congressional Records, throughout the Constitutional Conventions, throughout the Federalist Papers and it is all the same and exactly as I have described it.  We have the documents and we have the dates when all these things were decided, named, and put into effect.  We know why it is the way it is, and it all makes sense. 

Our history is consistent.  Our interpretation of the situation and the nomenclature fits.  

And yours doesn’t. You’re just talking through your hat and making assumptions, which is a dangerous thing to do, when the fate of your country hangs on it.  

Here’s the accusation:  

Now she is saying you are subject to a state and what they did was ok – LOL. Claim your political birthright. She attacked Phil and for claiming the proper and recognized birth right. Sounds to me like a well-planned long term psy-op courtesy of the master manipulators. aka Tavistock. They were behind this long term ie late 50s and beyond social transformation. My my my where we have gone in under a generation.

And here’s the answer: 

The problem is that because Phil is acting from wrong assumptions, just like you, he didn’t claim his “proper and recognized birthright” as an American.  He claimed his birthright as a British Territorial Citizen, instead.  

And he’s allowed to do that and so are you, but as I also explained — it means that you are a British Pauper living on the clemency of the King and standing good for all his debts.  

That’s all well and good, if that is what you want to do and mean to do, but if not, it’s time to get your heads out of your nether regions and listen up.  You can always admit to making a mistake, but the only mistake you can’t correct is the one you won’t admit.
