GMO Sugar Beets:  What the Public Needs to Know

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

The United States has agencies in place, created by President Teddy Roosevelt, that exist to protect the integrity of the American food supply.  In the early 20th Century, President Roosevelt witnessed a consistent degradation of the food. So, he oversaw the creation the Pure Food and Drug Administration, to ensure that our citizens would always have access to the best quality food available.

Sadly, within one administration, that agency was infiltrated by the very industries that Americans needed to be protected from.  When that happened, the adjective “Pure” became problematic, so it was removed.  Today we have the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) claiming to protect the interests of the American people with regards to the food supply.  Their job is to regulate changes to the growing of our food, before the public is exposed, to insure continued quality and safety.

GMO Sugar Beets are an example of a dismal failure of this regulatory process.  GMO sugar beets were thrust upon an unsuspecting public several years before they officially approved.  Added to that, the approval process initially only considered what the new beets might do to the immediate farm environment.  They did not consider possible danger to the humans that consumed the end product–the white sugar.

You see, the government was being put under pressure to prematurely approve the beets.  This maneuver was done by the chemical company that had created the GMO sugar beets.  Monsanto, the chemical company, did not offer an approved alternative to the new beets, so the farmers had nothing else to grow.  Fearing a sugar shortage, the government allowed the sugar to be released without completing the legal approval process.  Americans have now been eating sugar from this source for over ten years.

So, is the sugar safe or not?

Forgetting for a moment that, in general, sugar is bad for you, should you be consuming the sugar that originated from GMO sugar beets?  The energy signature testing we do at Morphogenic Field Technique says:  No, you should not be eating this sugar if you care about your overall health.  It tests very badly, as you may have observed if you have attended any of our live presentations.  It makes almost everybody’s muscles incredibly weak when tested.  

Why does this happen?  Here are our observations:

  1. GMO Sugar Beets are created using a process that we consider to be dangerous, the insertion of viral and/or bacterial genes into the seeds. Universally, our energy signature testing for anything created using this process has had a negative outcome.
  2. The beets and the soil that they are grown in is sprayed with pesticides and herbicides, with residual chemicals staying with the beets after harvest and processing.
  3. Beets are super-absorbers.  If it is nutritious, the beet will absorb it.  If it is toxic, the beet will also absorb those things as well.
  4. The result:  A toxic, genetically engineered beet, growing in toxic soil and eventually turned into a toxic product called white sugar.

Interestingly, our Morphogenic Field Technique testing procedure often demonstrates aberrant liver energies on people who have tested positive for GMO Sugar Beet energy.  

Solutions?  

  1. Avoid eating sugar, especially if you do not know the source.  If you must have sugar, buy and use only organic cane sugar products.  (Most commercial cane sugar is also sprayed with pesticides and herbicides).
  2. In our Morphogenic Field Technique classes, we like to energy signature match the “problem energies” to the “solution energies”.  In our home-testing classes, we offer 4 possible homeopathic “solution energies” that you may find valuable to expand and balance the M-Field when correctly matched.
  3. If you feel that your personal health concerns warrant a professional evaluation for more specific truly-natural protocol development, you can locate a trained MFT Professional at an event or on the MFT website here

Remember, the only stated goal of Morphogenic Field Technique is the expansion and balancing of the human energy field, the M-Field.  Years of experience have taught us that a large and balanced M-Field will move a person toward greater vitality and health, while a small or distorted M-Field usually means health-related challenges over time.

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?

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.
