~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MSM, Bio-Hazard Trill Seekers & Chemistry of Grief Revisited ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Reading This Article May Save Your Health & Your Heart ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You'll be served to read this article if you have concern about dealing with immune system issues and lessening the effects of grief when your loved ones make their transition through death. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bittersweet Christmas ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Our family had a bittersweet Christmas this year as our beloved child Super Raw Dog Sam passed away. Sam and I were very close. He was always on my body or curled up under my arm. Sam was quick to greet me when I walked in the room and followed me everywhere. Sam contracted a fast multiplying bacteria and coupled with the intensely cold weather, his body was consumed in a few days. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bio-Hazard Thrill Seekers ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sam's passage was particularly ironic as one of my client groups are Bio-Hazard Thrill Seekers. These are people who voluntarily go into ground zero areas of Ebola, Marburg, SARS, Bird Flu and Influenza, which killed nearly 400,000 world wide last year. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Fast Mutating Viruses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ They have to deal with fast mutators and fast multipliers quickly and effectively to stay alive. Fast mutators are viruses which mutate faster than the immune system can respond. It usually takes 3-4 weeks to program antigens and killer T-cells. Antigens destroy virons (viral particles) before they hijack cells. Killer T-cells destroy hijacked cells after they stop normal cell division and switch to viron production. Antigens and T-cells are programmed to recognize and attack specific viral signatures in the body, so they leave healthy cells intake. If a virus mutates on a faster cycle than 3-4 weeks, say 10 days like SARS, then chances of painful death are high. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Fast Multiplying Bacteria ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Fast multipliers are a bit different. Bacteria give off toxic metabolites. Each bacteria's metabolites attack some region of healthy tissue. For example, the polio virus releases toxins which destroy nerve cells. If the polio virus multiples faster than the body can eliminate these nerve toxins, these toxins accumulate, overrun the body and result in paralysis. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Your Primary Immune System ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can get the jump on both fast mutators and multipliers by upgrading both your primary and secondary immune systems. Your primary immune system is biological. There are two views of pathogenic (microbial) dis-ease: 1) Germ theory says germs (microbes) cause dis-ease. If this were true, we'd all have the same dis-eases. 2) Biological Terrain theory says dis-ease is based on tissue integrity. Strong Biological Terrain results in continuous health. Weak Biological Terrain allows germs (microbes) to take root and cause dis-ease. Most empirical (direct experience) quickly gravitate toward Biological Terrain as a their working model for diagnosis and treatment design. Primary immune system is upgraded to peak levels by: 1) High quality Salt, required for optimal digestion, adrenal function and tissue regeneration. 2) Seaweed, required for optimal thyroid and parathyroid function 3) Raw Food & Digestive enzymes with cooked food and stasis food, like raw (unactivated) nuts and seeds 4) Fast multiplying probiotics. Pro meaning for and biotics meaning life. Probiotics are essential for digestion and will displace unfriendly pathogens. 5) Keeping lymphatic sediment dissolved and lymph fluid draining quickly and completely. 6) Get plenty of full body sun. No sun where you live? Then move, as your life may someday depend on sunlight. Vitamin D from sunlight is essential for digestion which is the core process for building strong tissue. 7) Stay warm. Lots of sun, warm clothes and warm baths are great when the temperature dips, as raising body temperature requires massive energy. 8) Angstrom Minerals, Indium, Vita-C and MSM, all required for extreme (rapid) tissue regeneration. In retrospect, keeping Sam warmer might have been the edge which saved him. Who knows this may be the edge for you or your loved ones someday. You can all the items mentioned above (except the sun...) in our catalog: Radical Health Catalog ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Note About MSM ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Currently there is a link in our catalog to where you can acquire high quality, Organic MSM. In the next few weeks we'll be packaging what we believe to be the highest quality MSM. Look for the availability announcement. Pure Organic MSM, to me is neutral tasting. Whenever I drink Chocolate Silk I throw in one cap of Pure Radiance Vita-C and 1/8t MSM in 8-10oz. of Chocolate Silk. Be sure to shake well before drinking. MSM is also vital to recovering from deep grief. More about this shortly. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Your Secondary Immune System ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We live in a high pollution world. Some estimates suggest over 30,000+ chemicals are present in city water systems. This will get you thinking twice before drinking tap water. Having a high level primary immune system 100 years ago was the only requirement for enjoying healthy living. Today... You'll be served to protect yourself with a secondary immune system. Here's what I'd do: 1) Go through the Radical Health Step-By-Step guide to bring your primary immune system up to peak levels: Your Step-By-Step Radical Health Guide 2) Periodically do a round of Pathogen Flush, which you can find in our Radical Health Catalog. Doing the occasional Pathogen Flush is a great way to stay "ahead of the pathogen curve", one step ahead of them. In retrospect, greatly increasing the amount of Pathogen Flush we were giving Sam might have been the edge which saved him. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Chemistry of Grief Revisited ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In June of 2003 I wrote an article: The Chemistry of Grief, Stress & Depression My primary focus was sugar metabolism, specifically minerals which are rapidly depleted during extreme stress like the passing of a loved one. Another nutrient component is neuro-peptide (feel good chemicals) precursors which also rapidly deplete with minerals. Sam's passage reminded me of an equally important component of the grief process which is rarely discussed and is perhaps the reason why people feel so much pain during grief. The physical and chemical structure of our brains are formed by repetitive experience. As we experience, we learn what gives us pain and pleasure. Then we avoid pain and repeat pleasurable experiences. My interaction with Sam was consistent. An integral, constant, essential part of my daily life. Each day my pleasure with Sam burned neural (structural) pathways associated with our daily activities. Playing chase. Shaking a bush for him to bark and nip at my hand. Sleeping with him curled under my arm with his head on my arm, surveying his domain, the living room. When Sam passed, his absence caused what's sometimes referred to as a neurological, interference pattern. The pathways burned into my neurology were firing, except Sam was absent. My resulting grief was incapacitating. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Brain Structure Re-Patterning ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Flooding my body with nutrient after nutrient had no effect. Finally I recalled how neuro pathways are burned in brain structure and began considering how to rapidly reset these pathways, so I could get on with living. My intuition began directing me to take large quantities of Vita-C and MSM. Several days later I was viewing a video I shot of a speaker at our house. Some of the info he covered was so radical, he called me the day after his talk and requested I never release the video. So we only have private showings now and then. I walked in half-way throught the 4+ hour screening on his discussion of Vita-C and MSM. He was talking about these two substances being the basis for building tissue, especially collagen. In a flash, I realized Vita-C and MSM are also essential for rapid neurological regeneration. Then I really ramped up on Vita-C and MSM and in 3-4 days my memories of Sam and what I could have done to serve him better in his last days are still with me... and have no impact. I remember, notice and let it go. Using Vita-C and MSM with Himalayan Salt, Angstrom Minerals and Indium for me is: "Instant Zen in a Bottle" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Final Thoughts About Rapid Grief Recovery ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As I think back over the past 30 days I reach several conclusions: 1) Being able to flood my body with appropriate Super Foods and Super Nutrients allowed me to complete my grief in short order. People who experience lingering grief, especially for years my have serious disruptions in their nutrient intake (diet) or cellular uptake. Best to ensure your operating a peak so you can comfortably weather your storms of grief. 2) Vita-C and MSM are far more prevalent in my diet today. You may choose to experiment with these also. 3) Indium is becoming more amazing to me by the day. I'll write more about this in the future. For now, here's a summary of what I notice. Indium: a) Dialates (enlarges) cellular fluid exchange pathways increasing nutrient uptake and increasing metabolite (toxin) elimination. b) Puts me strongly in present time, deeply "in my body". c) Lowers brain frequency into the alpha range for mainstreamers and theta for long term meditators. Alpha and lower (Theta) brain frequency is required for regeneration. This is why sleep is so vital. Insomnia is a highly effective rapid aging technology. Deep sleep is essential for regeneration required for extreme longevity... and... where normally bodies suspend regeneration when awake, Indium appears to be the key to unlocking 7x24 regeneration. There is one other way to accelerate grief. When Sam passed we lovingly annointed his body with rare oils: - Frankincense, Blue Tansy and Spruce These oils were used in Eygyt to seperate the soul from the flesh, speeding souls along their journey to their next step. Being able to serve in this last step of Sam's incarnation touched us all. While all these technologies are useful, your best service for yourself and your loved ones is to stay alive and well. I recommend you start serving today by ramping up on your Raw Food, Raw Super Food and Super Nutrient intake today. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Wrapping Up ~~~~~~~~~~~ Articles/Recipes: http://RadicalHealth.com Product Catalog : http://RadicalHealth.com/order Be patient with replies, many days I receive 100+ inquiries.
