Swedish official admits toxic ‘chemtrails’ are real, not a wild conspiracy theory

Those long, white streams of persistent, cloudy haze commonly blasted into blue skies by unmarked airplanes are not your typical contrails, says Swedish Green Party leader Pernilla Hagberg. As reported by the Swedish paper Katrineholms Kuriren, Hagberg, the first major political leader to come forward on the issue, has openly admitted that these unusual cloud trails, which fail to dissipate like normal contrails do, are actually a toxic mix of chemicals, viruses, and metals that she has collectively referred to as “chemtrails.”

According to Hagberg, the sprayings are a joint endeavor by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), as well as the Swedish government in her own country, to modify atmospheric conditions via deliberate aerosol spraying efforts. And included in this “dangerous” mix of aerosols are various chemical components, viruses and viral fragments, and metals such as aluminum and barium, which have already been shown to be accumulating in water supplies and soils around the world.

Normal contrails, which are composed of mere water vapor that quickly dissipates after emission from jet engines, are far different from chemtrails, which gradually blanket the entire sky in a sea of white. The following video, put together by the FreeTruth Show, a YouTube-based radio broadcast, contains some imagery of what these chemtrails typically look like in the sky:

“It is great to see a politician bringing public attention to this issue and helping add to the credibility of this cause in the mainstream,” writes JG Vibes for The Intel Hub about Hagberg’s unprecedented public admission. “Unfortunately, this is a political problem that requires many non-political solutions.”

Spraying the skies to save the planet?

Interestingly, the United Nations (UN) and various Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-backed groups have recently been forced to admit that such sprayings are taking place, and that the emitted particles are not normal contrails. But their excuse for why chemtrail sprayings are being done is that they will somehow save the planet from the devastating effects of so-called “global warming,” that ever-present, pseudoscientific environmental theory that is often used as justification for all sorts of outlandish policy proposals. (http://www.globalresearch.ca)

In the case of chemtrails, everything from blocking the sun in order to lower the earth’s average temperatures, to deliberately shifting weather patterns for the purpose of offsetting the allegedly melting polar ice caps, have been used as excuses for trying to legitimize the seeding of our skies with a cornucopia of poisons. And if re-elected to another term, Hagberg says she will continue to fight such chemtrailing efforts in her own country, which she says have been co-opted by the Swedish government.

Be sure to check out the documentary What in the World are They Spraying? (http://www.whatintheworldaretheyspraying.info/), as well as its sequel, Why in the World are They Spraying? (http://www.whyintheworldaretheyspraying.com/), to learn more about the global chemtrail phenomenon.

Health & Wellness Adaptogens: Nature’s Miracle Anti-stress and Fatigue Fighters

http://www.drfranklipman.com/adaptogens-natures-miracle-anti-stress-and-fatigue-fighters/

undefined

Stress and fatigue. Judging from the proliferation of coffee and cupcake shops popping up these days, clearly caffeine and sugar are what a lot of folks are using to try to fight back. The problem is, they don’t actually work. Sugar and caffeine do offer a quick lift, but the crash is never far behind – so it’s back to Starbucks to start the cycle again, turning your day into a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. Fortunately, there are healthier ways to get through the day – and one of my favorites is with “adaptogens,” the special herbs that help your body adapt to stress and resist fatigue. Here’s my adaptogens-at-a-glance guide:

Adapta-what?

Adaptogens are a unique group of herbal ingredients used to improve the health of your adrenal system, the system that’s in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. They help strengthen the body’s response to stress and enhance its ability to cope with anxiety and fight fatigue – slowly and gently, without jolts or crashes. They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs. Though the effects may initially be subtle and take time to make themselves felt, they’re real and undeniable.

Where have they been all my life?

Unlike big pharma drugs, adaptogens weren’t born yesterday. In fact, they’ve been used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, to boost energy and resilience in the face of stress. Recently, several studies have found evidence to support what those of us in the sustainable wellness field already knew – that adaptogens offer positive benefits —and are safe for long-term use. (Take that big pharma!)

How do adaptogens work?

Adaptogens work a bit like a thermostat. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high it brings it down; when the temperature is too low it brings it up. Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without over stimulating. They can normalize body imbalances. By supporting adrenal function, they counteract the adverse effects of stress.  They enable the body’s cells to access more energy; help cells eliminate toxic byproducts of the metabolic process and help the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently. In short, adaptogens are amazing!

Which adaptogens should I use?

I prefer combination adaptogenic herb formulas and the adaptogen herbs I consider most important include Asian Ginseng, Eleuthero, Ashwaghanda and Rhodiola Rosea. Depending on your needs and physical condition – consult your doctor before taking any herbs and see cautions below – you can take these adaptogens individually or in a combination formula like my Be Well Adaptogens. When buying a formula, look for one that has at least 3 of the above adaptogens and make sure it has some Rhodiola in it. Again, remember consult your doctor first to get the all clear before you start.

Asian Ginseng

For thousands of years, Asian Ginseng has been one of the most valued (and expensive) medicinal plants in the world. It’s believed to affect the body by influencing metabolism within individual cells, and it has been studied extensively for its ability to help the body withstand stress. Western herbalists say that it restores and strengthens the body’s immune response, promotes longevity, and enhances the growth of normal cells. Research indicates that it promotes a sense of well-being and may protect against some kinds of cancer.

Dose: 100-200 mg per day of a standardized extract. Most standardized ginseng extracts supply approximately 4-7% ginsenosides. Or 1-2 grams per day of the dried, powdered root, usually taken in gelatin capsules.

Caution: At the recommended dose, ginseng is generally safe. Occasionally it may cause agitation, palpitations or insomnia. Consuming large amounts of caffeine with large amounts of ginseng may increase the risk of over-stimulation and gastrointestinal upset. If you have high blood pressure, your blood pressure should be monitored when taking it.  Ginseng is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Eleuthero

Eleuthero is used in traditional Chinese medicine for muscle spasms, joint pain, insomnia, and fatigue. In Germany, its use is approved for chronic fatigue syndrome, impaired concentration, and convalescing after illness. Western herbalists note that it improves memory, feelings of well-being and can lift mild depression.

Dose: 2-3 grams per day of the dried root.

Caution: As with Asian ginseng, Eleuthero is generally safe. But occasionally it has been associated with agitation, palpitations or insomnia in patients with cardiovascular disorders. If you have high blood pressure, your blood pressure should be monitored when taking it. I generally don’t recommend it for pregnant or breastfeeding women, even though limited research hasn’t turned up evidence of harmful effects in the fetus.

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. Like Asian ginseng, ashwagandha is used to help increase vitality, energy, endurance and stamina, promote longevity, and strengthen the immune system. Today, herbalists often recommend it for people with high blood pressure, insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and impotence associated with anxiety or exhaustion. It enhances endocrine function, especially the thyroid and adrenals. Ayurvedic healers have long prescribed the herb to treat exhaustion brought on by both physical and mental strain.

Dose: 3–6 grams per day of the dried root

Caution: Avoid during pregnancy or if you are taking sedatives or if you have severe gastric irritation or ulcers. Also people who are sensitive to the nightshade group of plants should be careful.

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola rosea acts like a hormone thermostat, especially as it pertains to cortisol, one of our main stress hormones. I believe that cortisol, which is secreted in sync with your circadian rhythms is usually, if not always, out of whack when you’re stressed out and exhausted. This means the cortisol level is either too high when it should be low or not high enough when we need more. Getting your cortisol back in rhythm when you’re compromised is crucial and Rhodiola literally helps balance the cortisol levels in your body, raising or lowering it as needed. That’s why this herb is particularly useful for treating my stressed out clients! What’s more, rhodiola has demonstrated a remarkable ability to support cellular energy metabolism. It positively affects brain function, depression, and heart health. In my experience, most patients who take rhodiola start feeling better within a few weeks to a month.

Dose: 200 to 600 mg per day of a Rhodiola rosea extract standardized to contain 2-3% rosavins and 0.8-1% salidroside. Or 2-3 grams per day of the nonstandardized root.

Caution: Avoid if you have manic depression or are bipolarRhodiola is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Although it’s unusual, at high doses rhodiola can cause insomnia.

Asthma on the Increase, Reasons Why

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?

Andrea HartleyBy Andrea Hartley

If local officials notified you that they were going to build a landfill next door to you, what would your reaction be? Would you be outraged? Would you object? According to Sloan Barnett, a regular contributor to NBC’s  Today show and author of the book, Green Goes With Everything, the landfill is a lot closer to you than next door.

“Most Americans, but especially children, have dozens of pesticides and other toxic compounds in their bodies, many of them linked to health threats,” she writes. “A source of many of these toxins? Common, everyday, run of the mill household consumer products.landfill2

Barnett’s own child, who suffered from asthma, was the inspiration for her research. She had spent her career as a consumer reporter, so she knew how to dive right in. She discovered that the United States is “in the midst of an asthma epidemic”. “There’s no polite way of saying this: your body is a landfill; a dumping ground for a mind-boggling array of toxic chemicals. So is mine, so is your child’s.”

One of every 13 school-age children in the United States has asthma. This is an increase of 160 percent from 1980. That’s about 9 million children, to say nothing of the number of adults who suffer from it.

What is the suspected cause of these stunning numbers? According to Barnett’s book, which was published last year, six well-designed epidemiological studies published in well respected journals have found one answer. There is a strong link between the use of certain cleaning products and asthma. She writes, “That stopped me cold. I may have been poisoning my own son.”

For example, Barnett lists the chemicals that are found in your fabric softener: “toluene, trimethylbenzene, styrene – which are neurotoxins according to the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health; phenols, xylene, a-terpineol, (irritates mucous membranes and causes central nervous system damage); benzyl acetate, (eye and respiratory irritant); benzyl alcohol, (can cause headache, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, respiratory irritation and a drop in blood pressure); camphor (on the EPA’s hazardous waste list); ethyl acetate, (eye and lung irritant); limonene, (irritant); linalool, (affects central nervous system); and pentane, (eye and skin irritant and that may cause headache, vomiting, dizziness, or loss of consciousness).”

Could this be the tip of the iceberg? Could the increase incidents of cancer, autism, Alzheimer’s, and many other diseases be attributed to our excessive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday life? A man’s home is his castle, according to the old adage; but according to the research, a man’s home has become a contributor toward his ill health.

In the book, Barnett tells how to make your own fabric softener. (An added advantage to this is you will save money). Add a half cup of baking soda to the wash cycle. To eliminate static cling, add quarter cup of white vinegar. To eliminate static cling in the dryer, dry natural-fiber clothes and synthetic fiber clothes separately.

Stains in fabric? Make an inexpensive, healthy alternative to spot removers.

2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
2 drops peppermint or lemon essential oil Water.

Combine to make paste, spread on stain, allow to dry before washing. (Source: Kayn Siegle-Maier.)

Barnett chose to change her lifestyle and go green. Many others who were sick and tired of being “sick and tired” have done the same.

Kicking out Restless Legs

RL

by

Andrea Hartley

*Author’s note:  This is an article about the author’s own personal experience with restless leg syndrome.   It is not meant as advice or treatment recommendations.

I remember as a teen, I would lie in in bed and my legs would ache.  I was told that it was “growing pains”.  I would raise my legs while lying down and I would do a bicycle pedal in the air.  Then I would suddenly plop my legs down the bed with a bang.  This would provide some temporary relief.  The problem cleared up for many years, only to resurface in my late forties.    At this point, I researched the problem online.  I discovered that it is described as an urge to move your legs while at rest.  The cause is unknown. It produces an aching or crawly feeling in the legs and irresistible urge to move them.  Sometimes they move on their own.  For some, it may be caused by a deficiency in iron, magnesium or folate, but generally the cause is “unknown”.   One thing I have found, personally, my symptoms disappear, for the most part, when I eat copious amounts of wheat germ every day.  I am talking about at least 4 tablespoons.  One thing that tends to cause my symptoms to reoccur, is taking antihistamines that cause drowsiness.  Another preventative measure that has helped me greatly is to go to bed regularly at 10:30 pm.  Usually I fall asleep before any “kicking” takes place.

Breaking Free from Unhealthy Internal Dialogue

Internal dialogue happens constantly for most people.  It occurs mostly as words rolling around in our heads but there are also feelings that accompany the words or sometimes just the feelings alone.  Feelings of fear, worry, anger or feelings of peace, joy, serenity.  I used to think that I had no control over this inner dialogue.  After all, if someone has done something that I deem stupid, inappropriate, or mean, I thought that it was only normal to react with anger.  It may be considered normal or “to be expected” but is it wise?  Medical science shows us that negative emotions make us sick and can lead to pre-mature death.  Metaphysics tells us that thoughts are substance and can manifest materially in our lives in accordance with whether or not the thought is a positive one or a negative one.   [Read more…]

Anger Management Tips

 

1.)    Admit to yourself that you are angry and need a time out.

2.)    Get by yourself, go to the bathroom if that is the only place you can be alone for 10 minutes

3.)    Accept that you have the right to your feelings; so you have the right to feel angry.

4.)    Ask yourself “Why am I angry?” [Read more…]

Vitamin D Deficiency Rampant- Linked to Heart Disease, Cancer and Diabetes

By Andrea Hartley

Tired? Muscles aching? Have you had trouble sleeping and just not felt like yourself? You might be deficient in vitamin D. Recent studies indicate that up to 75 percent of the American population may be deficient in vitamin D; a deficiency which has been linked to a plethera of illnesses including the three top killers, heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Darker-skinned individuals, older adults, obese individuals and post menopausal women are at  greater risk for vitamin D deficiency. There are vitamin D receptors all over the human body, therefore, it is involved in many biological processes including cell growth, and immune function.

Michael Monte Carlo, M.D., who practices family medicine in West Deptford, New Jersey, says that he routinely checks vitamin D levels in most of his patients on a yearly basis and finds that about 50 percent of them are deficient.

“I believe that the higher incidence is due to multiple factors, but the main factor being related to poor nutrition.  A poor diet that is a diet high in processed foods is low in vitamin D.  People do not consume enough fresh vegetables and fish, both sources high in vitamin D, therefore there dietary intake is low.,” Dr. Monte Carlo said. “In addition, we are seeing a higher incidence because the largest group of the worlds population is aging.  vitamin D production in the skin declines with advancing age, making elderly populations more dependent on dietary vitamin D, which goes back to my first point.  For the average older person, higher dietary intake of vitamin D may be required to achieve normal serum levels.” He added that the increased use of sun block is another factor.

“SPF blocks about 99% of the production of vtitamin D. Also, when you start to tan, the tanning process itself begins to block vitamin D,” Dr. Monte Carlo said.

So what’s a guy to do? Sun block or not? The British may have the answer! “Some of the messages about sun exposure have been too negative,” explained Professor Rona Mackie, from the British Association of Dermatologists, to BBC News. “We’re now saying that exposure of ten to fifteen minutes … without suncream, several times a week is probably a safe balance between adequate vitamin D levels and any risk of skin cancer.” The best time of day for this is between 11:00 A.M and 2:00 P.M

If you are over the age of 50, it may be more difficult for you to synthesize vitamin D in the skin with sun exposure. You may want to opt for a change in diet or supplementation

The Institute of Medicine recommended daily dose allowance is 600 IU and 800 IU for adults over age 70. Many physicians find this threshold too low and advise 2,999 IU. The daily intake should not exceed 4,000 IU per day unless prescribed by a physician. Dr. Monte Carlo prescribes 1200IU of vitamin D2 with calcium for post menopausal woman and for those patients with moderate to severe deficiencies he prescribes 4,000 to 8,000 IU. Depending on the patient, it might be taken daily, 3 times a week, or weekly.

Now, you have a good reason to take that fishing trip you have been wanting to take without guilt; since vitamin D is found naturally in very few foods. Salmon, Mackerel, Blue fish, are some of the best sources.

“A serving of salmon (3.5oz) contains approximately 1400 IU of vitamin D3; this amount remains unchanged after baking, but is decreased by 50% if the fish is fried,” Dr. Monte Carlo said. Cod Liver oil is also a good source of vitamin D  

Another tip, read the labels on your milk and cereal to be sure they are fortified with vitamin D.

Dr. Monte Carlo had more great things to say about the sunshine vitamin. “Vitamin D is very beneficial in preventing osteoporosis, heart disease, cervical cancer, infections. It is also useful in treating rhuematoid arthritis, lupus, diabetes and multiple sclerosis,” he said. “There is really no difference in the effect of vitamin D deficiency between men and women.   In children, (both boys and girls), vitamin D deficiency can manifest itself as Rickets, which presents itself as bowing of the legs.  In adults (both men and women), it can lead to osteomalacia, which presents as a poorly mineralized bone.  Osteomalacia can lead to osteopenia, followed by Osteoporosis.    Adults with a vitamin D deficiency may experience fatigue, headaches, poor sleep quality, chronic muscle aches and pains.”

There are actually a couple of forms of the vitamin, D2 and D3. Vitamin D3 is the naturally occurring form of the vitamin and is essential for life. Its molecular structure is similar the body’s steroid hormones, e.g. cortisol, estradiol, progesterone, aldosterone, and testosterone. Cholesterol is the precursor substance for these hormones and for vitamin D3 ,which, though it is called a “vitamin”, is actually a hormone as well . The manufacturing process of the supplement is complex. It typically starts by extracting cholesterol from the lanolin of sheep wool and through a patented purification process, is converted to active D3. This is the form of vitamin D that most physicians recommend . Vitamin D testing is expensive and is not covered by many insurance companies.

“Most people pay for it themselves, “ said Dr. Monte Carlo. He suggests that the price  may come down in the future.

People from all over the world have been fascinated with vitamin D’s healing potential. One woman in London gave vitamin D capsules to her husband who had prostate cancer; and to the amazement of the doctors, he got better! This incident prompted a study which is about to be published in the journal BJU International. Professor Jonathan Waxman, from Imperial College, London . They found that using vitamin D alone, once a day reduced PSA levels (an indicator in the severity of Prostate Cancer) by as much as half in 20% of the patients.

Other studies have also shown that vitamin D holds promise in treating Prostate Cancer. One study conducted at Stanford School of Medicine by David Feldman, M.D., showed that Cancer cell growth in a laboratory dish could by reduced by up to 70 percent when a form of vitamin D called Calcitriol, (available only by prescription), is combined with low doses of over-the-counter-pain killers.  Researchers have discovered that hormones called prostaglandins cause inflammation, and inflammation is associated with cancer growth, as well as other health problems. Calcitriol and NSAIDs (nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory) drugs both block prostaglandins.

Feldman says there is great enhancement when the drugs are given together but it is difficult to make an exact comparison since they are using cells in a petri dish and not a human.

Dr. Adam Perzin,M.D., a urologist with the Delaware Valley Urology, says that these studies provide great hope for the treatment of Prostate Cancer; but that it will be years before doctors will be able to conclusively prescribe vitamin D and anti-inflammatories as a treatment.

“I don’t want to squash the enthusiasm here, but first, there will need to be animal studies and then clinical trials on humans,” Perzin said. “This study definitely suggests that there may be some benefit and if it is proven that there is a link between vitamin D deficiency and prostate cancer, it would be incredible.”

The department of Preventative Cardiology at Hartford Hospital (Connecticut) is examining the effects of vitamin D supplementation (400IU vs 4,000IU) on blood pressure. The study is seeking men and women ages 18-50 years old with slightly elevated blood pressure (over 120/80), vitamin D deficient (under 20ng/ml), and who are not currently being treated with blood pressure lowering medications. Research participants will receive $150 for their time if they qualify and complete the study. For more information call 860-545-3454.

The following is a list of vitamin D quantities of certain foods reported by the US Department of Agriculture’s Nutrient Data Lab:Courtesy of Dr. Monte Carlo.

Fortified Milk (8oz)–100IU

Fortified Orange Juice(8oz)–100IU

Fortified Cereal(1 serving)–40 to 80IU

Canned salmon (100grams)–624IU                                                                                                Mackerel (100grams)–360IU
