Trusting the Research

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

This past year, City Council meetings in my hometown regarding the hazards/benefits of having fluoridated water was interesting beyond the obvious level of polarization that it created.  If you were trying to be totally objective in weighing the pros and cons, you had to be impressed with the level of knowledge and research presented.  I was struck by the fact that most of the best research was shared by ordinary citizens rather than health professionals.

It occurred to me that the anti-fluoride side was much better prepared in presenting actual facts and figures about the problems with adding fluoride to municipal water systems, while the professionals seemed to expect that people should agree with them just because they had a title or credentials. Today, in the age of the internet, everyone has access to Pub Med, the service that supplies published research to anyone with a computer.  In other words, we all have access to the truth if we can type in a few search words.

Personally, I spend a lot of time on Pub Med.  Did you know that there are over 20,000 peer-reviewed research papers published each year?  Keeping up on all of the information is impossible for any one person, even if you spent all of your free time reading the available data.  That is why I am always amused when another health professional tell me that there is no research to validate a statement that I have made.  I just ask them if they have reviewed all of the 20,000 articles that were published in the past year. End of discussion.

The real issue is this—Can you trust the results of the research?  After all, somebody had to write a check to pay for the study that was published, since most researchers do not work for free.  Can the results of the research be tainted by the special interests of the industry that is funding the research?  Of course it can!  It happens more often than the general public will ever be allowed to know.  Therefore, looking at the source of the funding is paramount.

Approximately 2/3rds of the research is funded by two industries, the chemical industry and the pharmaceutical industry.  Many of the research projects that are started are never finished.  The funding is pulled if the data implies that completion of the study may possibly work against the industry that is paying the bills.  That information is then swept under the carpet and the public will never learn why the data was destroyed.  This is particularly evident in the chemical industry, where GMO (genetically modified organism) research is often started but never completed.

Personally, I prefer to read the purer research studies published by the computer industry, for two reasons.  First, they are only interested in the truth about how to create the next level of technology.  They have nothing to hide from the public about studies that go horribly wrong.  Secondly, they tend to model future computer technology after new research that studies the functions of the human brain.  Computers have always been designed with that idea in mind.

The latest peer-reviewed research suggests that human memory is not held in the brain, or even in the body.  It is held in the field of energy that surrounds the body.  The brain, the neurons and the dendrites act as antennae to read the information coming in from the field as a person recalls a memory.

As the co-creator of a healing technique that has pioneered the concept of reading and responding to information from the human energy field, this revelation directly impacts my communication with the health care practitioners that I teach around the country and the patients that I treat.

In the computer industry, this research has led to the development of a new type of memory chip.  It is not silicon based.  Since the body is about 70% water, the new computer chip utilizes a lightly refined droplet of water.  They can pour many terabytes of information into this new chip.  As you might suspect, the data is not stored in the water.  Water acts as a matrix/template to organize the data which is actually help in a field around the chip and even around the computer itself.  This give a whole new meaning to the term “cloud computing”.

It is easy to see why I am selective about the research that I rely upon to provide the truth about the world around us.  I tend to distrust the research that is funded by chemical and pharmaceutical industries, because they tend to withhold any inconvenient information from the public.  When any “expert” attempts to convince you that you need to believe what they are stating, consider that they may be quoting research that came from an impure origin or denying the existence of research that is valid and factual.

 

America and the Culture of Chemicals

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Recently, I observed the 40th anniversary of my chiropractic practice in Port Angeles, WA, treating the citizens of the North Olympic Peninsula longer than any other current practitioner in my profession. As the local chiropractic patriarch, so to speak, please forgive me as I look back over that time. I wish make a few personal observations about health perspectives in my practice over the past 4 decades.

Initially, I began my professional education as a student at the University of Washington
School of Pharmacy. In my short time there, I came to understand that the health concepts they taught there were not aligned with my own beliefs. I walked away from that experience convinced that I did not wish to exist in a world of chemically-induced side effects and adverse reactions.  

To be clear, I also had other objections regarding the Pharmacy School’s narrow view of natural health care and the issues of big pharma’s stated financial goals.  It seemed to me that their objectives revolved more around positive profit outcomes rather than positive patient outcomes. But those are subjects for a different article.

In this commentary, I wish to discuss the general topic of chemical use and abuse, both legal chemicals and illegal chemicals.  Since I practice in a profession that does not use chemicals as part of the healing experience, I speak from the perspective of the now-uncommon person who prefers that the injection or ingestion of chemicals be kept to a minimum.

One of my first professional experiences with chemical abuse came in the mid-1970’s, when scientists suddenly “discovered” that Valium was addictive.  You might remember the Rolling Stones song called “Mother’s Little Helper”, about the overprescribing of tranquilizers.  In 1977, there were 60 Valium dispensed for every man, woman and child in the United States.  Somebody got my 60, somebody got my wife’s 60 and somebody got my children’s 60.

I can still recall the stress in the voices of the many people I treated that year who had suddenly been “cut-off” and could no longer get their fix.  It was heartbreaking to watch.  It was an example of what I call “legal chemical abuse”.  At that time, I put the blame directly on the shoulders of the big pharmaceutical companies and their representative, who convinced the doctors that there was no harm in prescribing them.  At that point, I was feeling pretty pleased with myself for walking away from that world.

That experience was the first of many similar episodes regarding both legal and illegal chemical abuse in my home town.  I have talked with many women who were convinced by their practitioner that they needed hormone replacement therapy to avoid hot flashes or osteoporosis, only to learn later that it made them predisposed to some types of cancer.

I have watched as the vaccines have grown to a $35 billion industry, projected to reach $60 billion in 5 years with absolutely no legal consequences if it all goes wrong. This has occurred thanks to a 2011 Supreme Court ruling that stated that vaccines were “unavoidably unsafe”, therefore the 3-5% of people who reacted to them had no legal recourse if their health was permanently damaged following their inoculations.

I have watched big pharma successfully lobby to make vaccines mandatory for students entering school in California, forcing the parents of these children to make radical, life-changing decision to avoid the vaccine dragnet.  There are many conscientious parents who do not want the vaccine chemicals, known as adjuvants, injected directly into their children’s blood stream.

I have watched as the USDA and the FDA have allowed the large commercial food manufacturer to add over 12,000 “legal” chemicals to our food supply.  I have also seen them approve the use of genetically modified (GMO) food lased with pesticides and herbicides without a single human feeding study to show that they are safe.

15 years ago, I watched as a large group from the local High School Class of 2002 suddenly “disappear” from school, drawn into the poisonous world of methamphetamine.  That was a classic example of the illegal side of the culture of chemicals.  To my thinking, it is an offshoot of the idea that you can just go numb to your problems if you take the right chemical.  Currently, my town has even greater threats from meth, cocaine and other illegal chemicals.

Someone purchases each of these chemicals, making them a huge stream of revenue for the entity that manufactures them.  And, they have a vested interest in pressuring us to continue their use.

Yes, my town is a big consumer of chemicals, both legal and illegal.  

How many more chemicals can we consume before we pass the point where cancer, autism and other diseases related to chemical abuse become the norm rather than the exception?

Why is Everyone Reacting to Gluten?

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

My local supermarket recently ran a newspaper ad stating that their bakery uses only non-GMO flour in their breads and pastries.  I found their statement to be confusing, since all flour sold in the U.S. is non-GMO.

That said, there is a huge difference between the wheat that most Americans eat now compared to the wheat we consumed 50 years ago.  The amount of confusion surrounding this issue has led me to write this detailed explanation of this important issue.

Around 1970, a new type of wheat was quietly put upon public supermarket shelves.  It was the first crop to be genetically engineered.  From that time forward, food in America would be forever changed. The general public was never told of this change; in fact, a great deal of time and money has gone into keeping these changes secret.

So, what is the difference between a food that has been genetically engineered (GM) and a food that is a genetically modified organism (GMO)?  GMO’s are the result of a process of gene-splicing from virus’ and bacteria to create new seeds. There has been a slow, methodical creep of this kind of technology into American food over the past 5 decades.  

You are no longer eating your grandfather’s wheat, corn or soy.

When I was a child, most people had never heard of of gluten intolerance.  That is because largely, it did not exist.  Today, gluten-free products are readily available and many people complain about negative reactions to wheat.  

Why has the wheat changed and how have those changes effected the digestive health of America?

As with most of the newly created problems with our food and environment, the answer is “follow the money.” Wheat was altered with the goal of increasing the yield per acre.  The plant was genetically engineered to grow shorter with a bigger diameter around the base so it would not blow over in the wind.  During harvesting, more upright plants meant a larger yield.  Therefore, it provided more money to the commercial farmer.  That in itself does not sound bad, but there were other consequences.

Changing the plant also changed the gluten.  Although it was probably an unintended consequence, the fact remained that a new grain was created.  It contained much more gliadin, a type of gluten that causes inflammation in the intestines.  A secondary problem with gliadin is that it binds to opiate receptors in the body and creates cravings for people to eat even more.  This combination of factors has contributed to a snowballing-effect of digestive issues over the past 4 decades.

Unfortunately, it does not end there.  We now have an additional problem with commercial wheat: Roundup. They recently added a new step to the harvest of the wheat: it is sprayed with Roundup/Glyphosate just before the harvest.  This is done to kill the crop so that it can be plowed-under earlier before the onset of winter.  An additional advantage to the commercial farmer is that it dries out the grain.  Good for the farmers, but again, bad for the consumer. Non GMO-wheat is still genetically engineered and unless it is organic, it is still laden with herbicides that are toxic to the human body. The Roundup/Glyphosate increase has been scientifically correlated by researchers at MIT to the increase in many diseases, including Autism and Celiac.

The good news is that organic heritage wheat is still available to the consumer.  You can purchase this from your local farmer’s market or health food store.  If supermarket chain bakeries are interested in attracting an informed health-conscience consumer, it would be more helpful to ensure that organic heritage wheat flour is used in their breads and pastries.

Physics Will Always Trump Chemistry

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

There has been a quiet revolution growing across the country in the field of natural health care and it all began in Port Angeles, WA.

The concept was built upon the premise that the human body had an Innate Intelligence that is constantly adapting to its immediate environment, for better or for worse.  The body has a natural attraction to a wholesome, nurturing environment and is repelled by a negative or toxic environment.

A second important premise is that each body has a field of energy that surrounds it and this field can “read” the environment for the purpose of adaptation.  On some level, these two basic concepts of the human body have existed in many cultures for centuries.

The relatively new contribution is our ability to quickly communicate with the body using the “field of energy” that it is constantly emitting.  We have called the human energy field the “Morphogenic Field” or M-Field.  The name was derived based upon early work into the Morphogenic Field done by Dr. Albert Einstein and later by Dr. Royal Lee.

The process of reading the M-Field is called Morphogenic Field Technique (MFT) and I have taught it to over 3000 health care providers in more than half of the 50 states over the past 8 years.  As many have experienced, the ability to read the M-Field and respond to it can be a great tool in assisting the assessment of a person’s nutritional, herbal and other health requirements.

The procedure is not like any other in the health care realm.  Unlike modern medicine, it does not depend upon chemistry.  It depends upon physics.  The M-Field is a natural energy signature (also called resonance), emitted by the body for the purpose of reading our immediate environment so that the body make adaptations.  Since everything else in the universe also emits an energy signature, the M-Field is constantly interacting with the surrounding fields.

If the M-Field is happy with its current environment, it will expand out.  If it dislikes the environment, it will contract.  We can use this phenomenon as a tool to determine what the body likes and what it dislikes.  We call it “Energy Signature Matching”.  The idea is to let the body tell you what external energies in its surroundings are helpful to that person and which are harmful.

Communication with the Morphogenic Field of the body can be performed by a skilled health care practitioner, trained to quantify the size and balance of the human energy field. Other required skills include a knowledge of truly natural health solutions and the ability to accurately perform a modified muscle response test on the person who’s M-Field is being analyzed. The practitioner can then use the structured MFT Procedure to uncover environmental factors that are affecting the individual and respond with appropriate natural treatment.

The only stated goal of Morphogenic Field Technique is to grow and balance the human energy field.  That is all that is promised.  However, when a large (5-7 feet) and balanced M-Field exists, our experience has shown that remarkable health improvements can be achieved over time.  We have measured these changes through more traditional methods as well, such as improvement to blood tests and symptom surveys, as well as dark field microscopy.  

The MFT Procedure is a practical application of the science of quantum physics, used to identify health challenges and find health solutions.  The secret lies in maintaining a large and balanced field of energy around the body.   Rather than using blood “chemistry” to guide a “chemical intervention”, the science of physics is used to match the energy signature of the person to the energy signature of the totally natural recommendations.

For a moment, consider the use of chemistry and physics as it exists in modern healthcare.  Physics concepts are used in many of the diagnostic tools such as x-rays, MRI’s and CT scans.  However, the treatments that result are primarily chemical in nature.  Chemistry, though helpful, has built-in limitations.   

Using existing physics concepts to read energy fields has infinite possibilities.  Until a machine is created to accurately read and respond to an energy field, the MFT concept of providing information about the needs of the body through skilled natural healers is the best way to move forward.  In my opinion, the future of healthcare around the world will ultimately involve less chemistry and more physics.

The Ancestral Diet and the Modern Diet

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

My hometown of Port Angeles is located approximately 15 miles from a famous archeological dig, the Manis Mastodon Site, unearthed in 1977.  According to the scientific journal “Science”, this location is the oldest human settlement the Western Hemisphere found to date.  There, tools and artifacts have been dated back to 13,800 years ago, older than the Clovis Site in New Mexico by 1000 years.  The dig at the Manis Mastodon site uncovered the remains of bison, caribou, and elk, but the nearly 14,000 year old mastodon remains the big attraction at the visitor’s center.

I recall reading about the discovery in the local newspaper when it was first publicized, trying to imagine the early humans’ relationship to this beast.  It was found with a spear point embedded in its rib, confirming for archaeologists that humans were indeed hunting in this area at that time.

I was reminded of the old joke about how to eat an elephant, which I have referred to many times in my life when faced with a large, daunting project.  Breaking things down into smaller pieces makes them manageable.

So close to my home there is an actual historical settlement where people literally “ate the elephant” for survival. Just south of Sequim, Washington, lays ample evidence of the known origins of a traditional diet in the Western Hemisphere.  

The Native American indigenous people survived many millennia before the arrival of the European settlers to “the New World.”  Tribal nations across the country consumed the food that was available to them, and it is well documented that there was an abundance of animal fat and protein in the primitive diet.  

Less obvious, perhaps, is the fact that nobody was getting their cholesterol checked on a regular basis. 14,000 years ago, people functioned without knowing their blood pressure or their resting heart rate.  Yet, they managed to survive as a culture for thousands of years.  Of course, the food was devoid of pesticides and herbicides; what today we would refer to as a totally organic diet. The carbohydrates that were consumed by early humans were in their complex form, since refined carbohydrates would not exist for another 13,400 years. 

We do a different sort of hunting now.  In the 21st Century, conscientious shoppers spend a lot of time reading the labels on the food for sale at the grocery store.  For those who are interested in health, the goal of the hunt is to find a nutrient-rich, high quality organic food supply.  Today, this type of food can seem more elusive than a mastodon.  As consumers we must decipher, from reading labels on packages, whether or not the contents are something we really want to put into our mouths.

The Native American ancestors who occupied the area 14 millennia ago had no such worries.  Whatever maladies they may have suffered as a culture, cancer was probably not one of them.  Now we live in a world where it comes as no surprise to learn that almost everything we have been eating, breathing or cleaning with is a known or possible carcinogen.  While regulatory agencies try to limit the exposure of the known carcinogens that we consume, these limits often come only after decades of exposure to the offending substance.  

Big agribusiness and the chemical industry have now introduced over 80,000 new artificial chemicals into our food supply and environment.  Much of this is done without sufficient testing to evaluate the risks of exposing the population to potential threats.  Regulatory agencies have explained that extensive safety studies are not practical; it would be too expensive and it would slow the progress of new products to the market.  

While you and I may believe that delaying the marketing of new chemicals is a great idea, it is likely that DuPont and Dow Chemical do not. Rather than proving the safety of a new product prior to introduction to the public, the product must be proven to be unsafe before it is “pulled” from the market.  In the meantime, we are all exposed to it.  This is not the recipe for another 14,000 years of survival.

 

My “Truly Affordable” Health Care Solution

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

I was recently asked to speak at an event in my town sponsored by the Democratic Party about the “crisis” of repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA), known by most as “ObamaCare”. The invitation came from a local physician, who believed that the public should have input from all sides, including that from the “alternative perspective”.

After quickly considering all of my Sunday afternoon options, I declined the invitation. While I agreed that everyone in the health care conversation would benefit from my perspective, I was pretty sure that nobody who would attend this function really wanted to hear what I had to say.

This morning, I read an article in the local newspaper about the event. The story in the paper only confirmed that my opinions about the practicality and affordability of Obamacare would have fallen on deaf ears. According to the article, everyone at the meeting agreed that repealing the ACA would be a disaster for everyone. I totally disagree. Done properly, a new system that gives coverage to every person is just what we need!

The biggest problem we have with the Affordable Care Act is that it is not really affordable. On the other hand, complete coverage could be very affordable but requires a total reconsideration of several factors that nobody wants to talk about. Surprisingly, it starts with a premise that should be near and dear to the heart of all Americans—freedom!

America is the “land of the free”, right? You do not hear that much anymore. The phrase has slowly been changed to “freedom isn’t free”. The implication is clear—we aren’t really free and we should all be OK with that. Events, like the one I did not attend, are occurring all over the country right now. These events are telling us that we have to accept the government’s right to make our decisions for us, including about our health and health care. If you don’t like the set-up, too bad. And, by the way, you have to pay for it anyway!

ObamaCare has been a disaster for the large number of people who prefer the natural health alternative. Resources are being routed into a system which they neither support or routinely participate in, except in an emergency. Paying the massive insurance premiums needed to support the current system leaves them without the financial resources needed to participate in a truly natural health care system, one that focuses upon “health” rather than on “disease”.

Contrary to the initial promises made by the advocates of the ACA, natural preventative care does not play an active role in this system. The term “preventative care” has been redefined to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical and medical lobbyists and true preventative care has been marginalized into near extinction.

As a result, most of my patients use cash to pay for their care. Plus, they also pay their ever-increasing insurance premiums. The people I treat are not seeking to get another chemical in the form of a prescription. They know that they are getting enough chemicals already from the processed GMO food products they are eating. My patients are seeking advice regarding health alternatives from nature. And I am pleased to provide them with those options. They pay out-of-pocket because our protocols are “not a covered service”.

So, what is my “Truly Affordable Health Care Solution”?

It is pretty simple—get rid of all of the expensive stuff that really doesn’t support true health, like insurance companies and government interventions.

I recommend an automatic health savings account totally directed by the person responsible for making the individual health care decisions. The account would be backed by a major medical policy that would kick-in only when the annual health expenses exceed $10,000. Each American would receive an annual health care allotment that can be used as they choose (freedom returns). If they don’t spend it, it can be rolled-over into the next year.

Everyone will be covered. Everyone becomes responsible. Freedom of choice in health care returns.

Health savings accounts have worked well in the past. The problem came from the “disease care” industry as people increasingly made natural health care choices. The insurance companies, the hospitals and the pharmaceutical industry all lost market share when people were actually empowered to make their own choices. The money flows away from them. These are the groups that do not really want the system improved.

That is why those groups need their lobbyists!

What’s the Morphogenetic Field Technique all about?

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

Morphogenic Field Technique is an energetic testing system, designed to move the body towards greater health.

MFT has three components:

1. The morphogenic field
2. Muscle response testing
3. Digitized water vials

The M-field: Everything in nature has energy around it. This energy signature is recognized by biologists, scientists and physicists. You may have heard it being called Chi or Aura.

Muscle Response Testing: Originally called Applied Kinesiology, it has been around for over 50 years. Muscle testing is a technique used in alternative medicine to analyze and treat based on the belief that muscles are connected to organs and glands and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems. MFT is an advanced form of muscle testing in which we use your body’s energy field, instead of the organs and glands. Imbalances will affect the health of the person over time. With M-field Technique we can have an energetic conversation with your body about imbalances.

Digitized water vials: These vials contain the digitized energy of common health problems and the solutions to match them. The problem and solution vials are put together into special MFT test kits.

Digitized energy vials

Now that you have an understanding of the three components of MFT let’s walk you through a typical session.

First, the MFT practitioner will measure the size of your M-field, which should reach out at least 5-7 feet away from your body. The practitioner does this by using a special field-measuring vial and your extended arm. As they bring the vial towards your body, the muscle in your arm will innately go weak. This point of weakness shows the practitioner where the field begins. If it is less than 5-7 feet, you are energetically challenged in some way.

Next, the test kits are placed against the body and slowly drawn away to see if the test muscle goes weak. If it does, you have to find the “problem” vial that made the muscle weak. The vials are grouped to narrow down the culprit.

After all of the “problem energies” are identified, it is time to find the “solution energies”. Once you match all of the problem energies to the solution energies, it is time to remeasure the M-field again to see the difference in the size and balance of the field.

All of the “solutions” will be truly natural. The M-field is not interested in any poisons or chemicals. To learn more about MFT, health tips and industry info and to sign up to receive our blog, visit our website and follow us on Facebook.
