How can we, as a society claiming to be ‘evolved’ and civilized, continue to overlook the blatant misrepresentation of the facts regarding mental illness, psychopharmacology and conventional treatments of those suffering from normal emotional struggles?  Hundreds of landmark criminal and civil cases and scientific studies have proven that psychiatric treatments of emotional issues are nothing more than a wholesale crimes against humanity.  (more…)

Feel safe with hypnotherapy

Eliminate anxiety with hypnotherapy

Believe in yourself and all that you are.  Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.         ~Christain D. Larson
The foundation of all life’s successes and positive sense of self is grounded in a belief that one is safe.  The fruits of a strong belief that we are safe include good self-confidence, trust in oneself and life, and gratefulness for being who we are.  These in turn directly influence the choices we make, the actions we take or don’t take and especially how we treat ourselves.

All so-called mental illnesses are a ‘crisis of belief’; hopelessness that one’s safety can ever be assured.  After doing everything society encouraged us to do…follow certain standards, seek specific knowledge, work for certain employers, engage in relationships with those who society approves of and so on, we may well be left empty and anxious about that emptiness.  We may have every material item consumer scientists assure us will make us happy, yet we may well continue to be dissatisfied and despairing that the future is more of the same.  We may have reached the pinnacle of our profession, considered the best parents on the block or the best community volunteer ever, but perhaps we are left feeling not quite accomplished.  We may have become people pleasers out of fear that if we disappoint others, there will be some terrible consequence that we cannot identify or control, all the while seething with resentment because others take advantage of our inability to protect ourselves.  We may faithfully take the antidepressant(s), drink several beers, or smoke a pack of cigarettes, only to find we feel alternately dulled and lifeless or hyper and agitated.  All of these actions we may have taken.  Yet, we still don’t feel quite safe, quite good enough, quite worthy, quite valued…

When we feel ‘unsafe’ we trigger primal responses that ensure we survive.  We are born pre-programmed to find ways to ‘survive’.  Some of that automatic response includes the release of the ‘fight or flight’ hormone called cortisol.  Unfortunately cortisol only makes things worse by fueling the urgency to ‘save’ oneself; it does not allow for rational, objective thinking and problem solving.

By finding creative ways to eliminate the feeling of danger many people refer to as anxiety or fear, the brain, starting in the formative years, develops a set of conditioned responses that will ensure a feeling of survival.  Because these responses do in fact work (that you have survived is proof enough for the brain), an adult becomes a person who is trying valiantly to build a life on a belief system established in early childhood that has at its core, a prevailing feeling of being unsafe.  The problem is that the logical brain (with the minuscule amount of data it has at its disposal) simply cannot figure out what the danger actually is.  It often chooses to react with cortisol to old triggers of the past that it filed away as data – just to be on the safe side – thereby keeping us filled with cortisol, negativity and relentless anxiousness.  Sadly, the harder the brain works to keep us surviving and ‘safe’, the subconscious mind believes we are simply not safe.

People seek healing from their ‘crisis’ sometimes succumbing to therapies that seek to prove them flawed and ‘ill’, resigning themselves to a fate involving addictive chemical concoctions (psychiatric drugs) and electroshock designed to damage their brain without realizing their brain is only doing the job it is required to do by nature.  Like the mailroom boy in a large organization, the brain has nothing to say about the direction our lives will take or why…it simply carries out orders. It reacts as one’s belief instructs it to. There is simply no use blaming the brain as conventional therapies tend to do.

Pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol, pot (cannabis), cigarettes or any other psychoactive drug appears to the brain to be assisting in the survival process because these substances dim, for a while, the strength of the anxiousness and feelings of fear.  In fact, though the person is distracted by the drug’s effects, the actual emotional distress is still very much alive, resurfacing again as soon as the drug’s effects subside.  The brain, conditioned to rely on this relief, though it may be very short-lived, soon becomes dependent and eventually addicted to the substance as a way of generating a feeling of survival.  You will note that I say “feeling of survival’…a feeling of safety.  But in fact the substance is interfering with survival and preventing a true review of what is actually causing the feelings of being unsafe.  The brain is indeed being misled by a feeling of being safe, when in fact the behavior engaged in to produce that feeling is dangerous.

Many people recognize that psychiatric drugs and long talk-therapy cannot overcome issues of ‘belief’ in ones worth and safety.  They reach for therapies that can help them climb yet one more rung on the ladder to complete fulfilment of their own unique journey.  They are looking for a feeling of completeness, of peace, of acceptance, of trust.  Upon finding these aspects of themselves, a feeling of safety prevails, complete with an understanding that natural human feelings are just that, ‘natural’, and an important guidance mechanism.  By taking the natural route to self-fulfilment, they have avoided harming their brain and other organs and especially the resultant life-long withdrawal symptoms and psychotic experiences caused by psychiatric drugs.

The seed of belief that one is unsafe in one’s world is planted in very early childhood.  Thereafter, events occur that will only confirm in that’s persons mind, their view of not being good enough and therefore of not being quite safe in their environment.  Soon, it becomes impossible for that person to allow themselves to trust in the fact the Universe knows precisely what it is doing and regardless what society has presented them with as experience, there is nothing or no one that can diminish their worth and importance to this Universal puzzle we call life.

This is where a qualified regression hypnotherapist can be invaluable.  They can guide a client to that place within themselves where the unproductive belief is found and help to dissolve not only the seed but the roots to all issues of being unsafe using the subconscious mind. They can also help plant a new, productive belief of self-love and self-appreciation, nourish the roots to good self-confidence and gratefulness and build a rock-solid foundation of trust in oneself and one’s Universe.

The W 5s of Fluoridation of Drinking Water

Growing up with Dental Fluorosis due to Fluoridation of Drinking Water

Fluoridation of Drinking poisoning children

Fluoride poisoning due to the ingestion of municipal drinking water ‘treated’ with poisonous fluoride compounds exacerbate the severity of various mental and emotional illnesses through its effects on the thyroid and pineal glands. The practice of fluoridation of municipal drinking water must stop!

What is Fluoridation all About?

Fluoride additives are a toxic by-product of the super-phosphate fertilizer industry, dumped into our drinking water straight from the stacks of industry…the equivalent of the forced licking of fertilizer industry chimneys!  Fluoridation of drinking water is not the beneficial action it is touted as being….it is incredibly harmful, especially to children.

In a large majority of the cases the chemical known as hydrofluorosilicic acid classified as a hazardous waste product produced by the phosphate fertilizer industry is used in the fluoridation process. Proponents of fluoridation deceptively claim that study after study support its benefits, withholding that those studies were conducted on sodium fluoride, a different chemical then what is actually being used and that they were undertaken by dental and fertilizer industry-friendly researchers.

Toothpaste containing fluoride has a warning:  Do not ingest, poisonous to children!  As does the bag it is shipped in.  Yet children drink and bath in it daily. Fluoridation of Canadian water means that the following also gets dumped into the water:  fluorine, hydrogen fluoride, lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, chromium, phosphorus, iron, iodine, silver, plus uranium238, barium, radon, cobalt, radium and polonium because it is derived from the mining processes used to extract the phosphate used in the super phosphate fertilizer industry, thus violating even further our basic human right to SAFE water.

Fluoride has been deemed an environmental toxin and environmental laws around the world forbid any company to dump it, in any form, into the air, the soil or waterways unless decontaminated. 

Clever deceptive practices by the dental and medical associations in North America who gain financially from the dental fluorosis and cancers and other medical issues the practice causes, and who are flush with major infusions of fertilizer industry money to push propaganda, made the intolerable become acceptable.  Now fertilizer companies save decontamination costs by selling it for release into drinking water during the fluoridation process, in what must be the best example of turning a lemon into lemonaide.  Therefore, as only 1% of the fluoridated water supply is ingested by humans and stored in the bones and glands, the rest goes into the waterways, onto gardens and is re-circulated into the water system and food production, each time with more fluoride added.

Dr. Frederick B Exner, author of Economic Motives Behind Fluoridation 1966:  “….Fluoride is also a compound that is a known carcinogen and a tranquilizer and that has been proven to build up to toxic levels in the body and in the environment over time.”

From ‘Everything You Wanted to Know About Fluoride But Were Afraid to Ask’ a poignant quote: “Dr Dean Burke an American biochemist, a co-discoverer of biotin, medical researcher, and a cancer researcher at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and the National Cancer Institute and not a dentist, was quoted “In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer death, and causes it faster than any other chemical.” Congressional Record 21 July 1976.

In 1997, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute (and clearly not a dentist). After analyzing the study results in rats, it was found that animals who drank fluoridated water  showed an increase in tumors and cancers in oral squamous cells, developed a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma, showed an increased in thyroid follicular cell tumors and developed a rare form of liver cancer known as hepatocholangiocarcinoma.  According to a recent report on CBC, this liver cancer is now at epidemic proportions in Canada.

In a government report it was noted that as of 2011, 40% of American kids had severe dental fluorosis caused by fluoridation, with the minorities (Blacks and Hispanics) who can’t afford filtering systems showing the most severe results.  Interestingly, although Canadians were fluoridated at the same time and rate as Americans, the 2007-2009 Oral Health Statistics by the Office of the Chief Dental officer of Canada claimed that ‘dental fluorosis remains an issue of low concern in this country”!  Low concern??  This statement alone suggests that the low concern is likely the result of a more sinister agenda then we would be led to believe.  That any person may be harmed as a result of his decision-making process should make it a matter of extreme concern, not low concern, particularly since the practice has nothing to do with making drinking water safe.

Why Fluoridation  of Drinking Water?

The story we were told in 1945 after the President of the Eugenicist Society of Canada, Dr. W. Hutton, was caught secretly adding fluoride compounds to Brantford’s drinking water, was that it ‘prevented’ dental cavities.  The only time fluoride (in it’s pure form, which is not the form dumped into our water) MAY be helpful is when applied topically to the teeth, at which time it is regulated as a drug.

Industrialists skirt strict environmental laws that prohibit the release of fluoride products into the air, soil or waterways by selling them off to municipalities who are doing just that…breaking environmental rules by proxy during the fluoridation process.  The kicker is that they are spending our tax money to poison us and to directly support the depopulation agenda, ongoing since 1920s and 1930’s through the Rockefeller Foundation and the Kellogg Foundation.

But again, regardless whether it was harmful or not, which clearly it is, this practice of fluoridation of drinking water has nothing to do with making water safe to drink or saving teeth and is a violation of our basic human rights to SAFE drinking water and food security.  In fact, it categorically is making our water toxic and causing catastrophic health issues, especially for children.  It exacerbates all mental health issues and when combined with the fluoride ingredients added to psychiatric medications, results in profound fluoride toxicity.

It was proven by distinguished scientists, later blacklisted for whistleblowing, that a baby ingesting infant formula or juice prepared with tap water is automatically subjected to fluoride poison.

Where Did Fluoridation Start?

Having started with the secret addition of fluoride compounds to Brantford, Ontario municipal drinking water in 1945 by their city medical officer, fertilizer and dental lobbyist pushed their agenda across Canada for 65 years.  However 66 towns and cities are now free of fluoridated water.  Check The Regenesis Project to learn if your water is being poisoned with fluoride:  http://www.theregenesisproject.com/does-my-municipality-fluoridate-the-water/  Unfortunately, until the Canadian government actually steps up to protect our basic human rights with legislation that would prohibit the addition of any substance to our drinking water that is not specifically proven to make water safer to drink, there is always the risk of the big money interests steam rolling Canadian citizens into accepting the practice of  fluoridation yet again.

When did Fluoridation Start in North America?

The practice of fluoridation of drinking water was well underway in the USA in the 1930’s as the result of the financial nurturing of the dental association by the Rockefeller and Kellogg Foundations – major proponents of eugenics (eugenicists share the goals of Hitler and the Nazi’s for one master race). In Canada, the practice was secretly started in Brantford, Ontario in 1945.  The provincial governments of Canada have bestowed on municipal authorities the right to violate our basic human rights to not be medicated without our consent, our right to SAFE drinking water as acknowledged by the UN and the right to food security (fluoride poisons food supplies, especially infant formula and juices prepared with tap water).  This behavior on the part of provincial and municipal governments violates the Canadian constitutional imperatives.

Who is Opposed to Fluoridation and Why?

Thousands of ethical and esteemed scientists and researchers around the world have called repeatedly for an end to the practice of fluoridating drinking water for a disease that is neither contagious nor life-threatening, because the claimed ‘treatment’ by fluoridation causes catastrophic health and dental issues, especially in the poor where the effect of fluoride toxicity cannot be mediated by good diet and proper health care.

In fact, the most esteemed US toxicologist, William Marcus, Senior Sciences Advisor, Criteria and Standards warned of the Fluoridegate happening in the USA as early as 1990.  For his efforts, as he explains in the Fluoridegate Video, he was fired, harassed and intimidated.  He won reinstatement in court, but still all legitimate science showing the catastrophic damage resulting from this practice, especially to children, was suppressed, oppressed and withheld from the public.  ANY and ALL efforts to warn the public were met with swift consequences, thus for decades women have been unwittingly feeding their babies infant formula and juices containing poisoned tap water with horrible and predictable health effects.

Negative consequences have also been experienced by dissenters in the Ottawa area to the point where councilors are advised by the Chief Medical Officer of the City on how to deal with any citizen who tries to make them aware of the latest ethical scientific findings and epidemiological study results of the fluoridation of drinking water.

Summary: The Practice of Fluoridation of Drinking Water:

We are not deficient in fluoride in Canada, we are deficient in public outrage and meaningful action.  City authorities are hard-pressed to disagree with the conclusion that an entire population suffers or is at high risk of suffering catastrophic health issues (especially thyroid and bone cancer) to theoretically prevent 1 dental carie in one child’s whole lifetime.  They refuse to listen to the facts or consider that they are supposed to be representing the welfare of dissenters as well as industry-funded proponents and acting in the city’s best interests!

It makes no sense that a practice such as this should be remotely considered a ‘treatment’ in Canada so important as to necessitate violation of our basic human rights, even if the fluoride product used was effective at decreasing tooth decay, which it is not.  It makes little sense to continue to fight a system bent on violation of our constitutional and UN declared basic human rights to safe drinking water and food security, using only good will and honest efforts to share legitimate information that is summarily disregarded on the whim of council members and city medical officers concerned about not ‘rocking the boat’.

When will we stand up to end the practice of medical and dental lobby groups backed by Big Pharma, Big Business and the Monsanto’s of this world poisoning us at will?  The city medical director’s opinion should never been permitted to trump the basic human rights and the constitutional rights of Canadians, ever.

Do you think a class action lawsuit against the municipalities still engaged in the wholesale and deliberate poisoning of its residents would be a meaningful step forward?

Eliminate anxiety with hypnotherapy and you eliminate IBS

Eliminate anxiety with hypnotherapy and you eliminate IBS

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) sufferers are often advised to change their diets, but despite flawless lifestyles and diets, their IBS symptoms still prevail.  This is because it is not a dietary issue: Irritable Bowel Syndrome is the result of severe and prolonged anxiety and can be resolved with hypnotherapy.

What the World’s Authorities Say About Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Google the work of Grant Thompson, and especially Peter J. Whorwell and IBS and you will see explanations there of why even a perfect diet and lifestyle will not and does not resolve correctly diagnosed Irritable Bowel Syndrome…because it is a condition caused by the muscle spasms affecting not only the shoulders and neck but the gut lining and abdominal muscles, strangulating a part of the gut and preventing food from passing. Stuck food causes fermentation and gas and therefore distension and pain of the affected part of the gut. The muscle spasms happen due to severe and prolonged anxiety which causes significant amounts of cortisol to be released and one of it’s trademarks is the tightening of muscles. Get to a good regression-to-cause hypnotherapist in your area and have the root cause of your anxiety resolved in order to remain free of IBS ((Irritable Bowel Syndrome). It is not to say that bad diet and alcohol or other psychoactive drugs will not exacerbate IBS issues, but the Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be resolve quickly. They don’t have IBS hypnotherapy clinics in Manchester Hospital for nothing.

These same researchers have concluded that the drugs prescribed for IBS are not only useless, but actually worsen outcomes. They have found that hypnotherapy is amazingly effective at least 85%  of the time in resolving Irritable Bowel Syndrome suffering. Do yourself a favor, avoid conventional treatments for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and seek out a qualified regression hypnotherapist.

Justice is Not Justice if Psychiatry is Involved in the Justice System

Justice System Hijacked by Psychiatry is Not Justice

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.  ~Adolf Hitler

The truly useless expenditure of time and intellect in the process of pumping air into a dead horse will remain just that…useless, and in the end, extremely damaging to the person who believes the horse will get up.  However, as long as the marketing pump and the courts, justice system and governments believe that the junk science of psychiatrists and psychologists has merit in the assessment of a person’s mind and intentions, the decisions of the courts will be, essentially, the decisions of pseudo-scientists who cannot objectively prove a single thing they claim as ‘fact’, but who will arrogantly claim the horse is rising! 

What is Junk Science and How Does it Affect Justice?

In his 1993 book Galilee’s Revenge: Junk Science in the Courtroom (pp. 2,3), author Peter Huber defined the term as follows:  “Junk science is the mirror image of real science, with much of the same form but none of the same substance.. . . It is a hodgepodge of biased data, spurious inference, and logical legerdemain, patched together by researchers whose enthusiasm for discovery and diagnosis far outstrips their skill. It is a catalog of every conceivable kind of error: data dredging, wishful thinking, truculent dogmatism, and, now and again, outright fraud. “  (more…)

Growing up with low self-esteem

Child with low self-esteem

Resisting the constant pull of persistent negative emotional feelings is de-energizing and physically draining ; emotional and physical well-being is not sustainable under the burden of low self-worth and low self-esteem, in large part because it takes a great deal of energy to think and act positively and productively when we simply don’t feel great about ourselves.

Plain Language Labelling Will Save Lives

Plain Language Labelling Will Save Lives

It’s a travesty that it took 13 years of cajoling  to get government to do a bit of its job for Canadians, but finally,  drug labels to warn patients about the true risks associated with prescription and over-the-counter drugs will now be mandated.  On June 14th, 2013,  Canada’s Minister of Health, Leona Aglukkaq, and Terence Young, MP for Oakville, ON  announced Plain Language Labelling Initiative  in Toronto.
