Hi everyone and good day! Yes, almost everyone (those paying attention) is concerned with the Covid-19 pandemic now consuming the air waves of every news channel! And rightly so!  How is this all going to pan out? For most it is a bit uncertain in the short term. For the long, well, it’s going to work out! How do I know this? It always has and always does! This is not the first pandemic of epic proportions and risk to all nor will it be the last.

When we look at the functional, indigenous traditional medicine histories of the past we know that Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Native American Medicine as well as Homeopathy and Nature Cure (i.e. Traditional Naturopathy), especially as found in the Christian Monastic Medicine traditions of the Hospitaller’s (Founder of the Modern “Hospital” concept and “Nursing” weathered in some cases MANY pandemics.

The knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of surviving epidemics has not changed, not been lost just because the “times” have changed. Yes, we do have modern medicine and “medical respirators”, although we have a shortage of individuals who know how to operate these high tech life saving devices.

Please note the following recommendations are in addition to the really good overall advise and NAIC Monastic Medical Recommendation’s guidelines as well as legal edicts as per governmental authorities. All health and medical recommendation’s on an individual level must follow your personal physicians recommendations.

 

So… best bet for most people is to:

A) Reduce your exposure! This concept of physically limiting your direct risk of infection by creating and maintaining physical space (6 to 10ft.) from vectors (source of infection/ carriers) whether directly known or unknown… i.e. Social (Physical) distancing to a reasonable degree, is valid and useful in the small and the big picture of slowing down exposure rates in the general population. However, I say within reason for a reason. Our entire lives are built on and based on socialization and social interaction… It is simply not possible for the greater population to sequester and isolate. Income level, access to deliveries… especially a condition for rural and or remote areas! No “Grub Hub” or “Uber Eats” in these areas. Maybe your a “Prepper” maybe not. But all of us need to be somewhat on the “prepper” train right now  and for some unforeseeable future. No matter what your up to reduce your social activities to those activities which support health and self sufficiency as best you can. Many “essential” infrastructure persons from health providers to first responders will have the same issues as most of us while being required to get out there in high risk environments… no choice. My advise to these persons is do what you can aside from your job responsibilities to take care of your self and your family! You now have multiple jobs in that you have a public responsibility and still need to take care of your own households.

  1. Avoid total isolation: While we need to exercise caution in regard to large gatherings and social interactions, our health can suffer if we isolate ourselves completely. Social isolation disrupts the functioning of the vagus nerve—the brain-gut connection that regulates our immune system and our response to stress. Try to maintain a sense of social connectedness by engaging in small and safe social gatherings, eating meals with your family or a few friends, and avoiding over-reliance on electronic socialization. Above all, stay calm and open hearted while observing these commonsense precautions:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

    • Wash your hands frequently.

    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

    • Stay home when you are sick.

    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue; then throw the tissue in the trash.

    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using soap and water or household cleanser.

    • Keep bundled up and warm during cold weather.

B) Be healthy… If your not? Ask yourself “Why am I not healthy?” if the answer is anything that has been in your power and means to correct… get on it! Every health expert including myself will tell you that your baseline of health and wellness will be a contributing factor in both your personal susceptibility and if and when exposed (and you will be), you experience as virulence, degree of illness and risk of death. We here at the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center have been teaching all of these concepts for years! Those of you who are graduates from our programs and especially my classes have heard me tirelessly and repetitively tell to to get your personal health in order.

Do the medicine you have been taught. Use the resources you have been given to get healthy i.e. “Physician, Heal Thy Self” as both a pre-condition and as a formal condition towards healing others. Those of you who have followed the teachings are now in excellent shape to deal with the current crises… those of you who followed lackadaisically or didn’t think it was important enough to double down and master the ancient and modern medicine teaching given are now in the same boat as everyone else, those who did not have education, those who don’t have a clue!

You may not like this! I want to say that those graduates  and or former students who exclusively have chosen to re-define our SomaVeda Indigenous Traditional Medicine® Thai Yoga as exclusively “Bodywork” and or “Massage” are just now wishing you had paid more attention to the parts of the program dealing with immune system, nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and counseling… You know who you are! However, all is forgiven. Break out your notebooks, text and course materials and dig deep into your notes for solutions you can do right now and which you can use as a basis for counseling! Now is the time to build and redirect into the counseling services your qualified and authorized to do which do not require physical contact and or even being in the same room! You can counsel by phone appointment, “Skype”, FB Live, “Insta” Live, Twitter or whatever format works best for your communications with your clients.

For example, it is proven clinically and scientifically that improving your emotional/ mental health has an immediate and direct impact of your immune system function and overall health and wellbeing. We have an amazing technology called B.E.T./ EFT and or “Energy Psychology” which EVERY SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner at EVERY practice level is required to learn and know! Now is the time to put that training and secondary certification/ scope of practice to use. Who does not need professional counseling on their negative and old unresolved negative emotional issues, fears, phobia, anxiety issues right now? Those therapist who are paying attention are scheduling paid professional consultation by phone and on-line. If your not… ask your self “Why not?”

A big part of what it means to be able to help bring healing to others is to “Work on Your Self”. Use the “Tapping” to build your own stability and remove confusion and irrational fear to better enable your own clarity to make better decisions during difficult times. Yes physical distance can be helpful… however, do not isolate yourself from your own healing practices and certainly do not be one of those “Healers” who in a crises disappears or is other wise “Not Available”. If your a trained healer, minister or Practitioner Therapist now is the time to prove your metal. Put up or shut up. Help or admit defeat to your lack of discipline and either immediately start supporting those who can do the work or get out of the way. If these words seem strong or critical, then so be it. This current time and pandemic is EXACTLY what we have been training for. This is why true healers, practicing authentic, genuine medicine have been training for. I hope with all my heart that you, my current and former students choose to step up and not out!

I want to recommend for the “Self Work” part of the equation right now my book “Angels Speak, The Art and Work of Crafting Consciousness“. Take some of the “Free Time” you now have because you may not be able to “rub on people” for money and continue to educate yourself on how to work on yourself in such a way as to reconnect to being able to contribute in difficult times.

IMPORTANT ALERT: If you are, and or define your professional livelihood as a “Massage” person my heart goes out to you as the massage industry is experiencing a huge crash which is likely to continue for the future. Non-medical, non-essential touching for esthetics, relaxation and or “therapy” may even be banned by the government in the near future.

I have a solution for you… Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and Indigenous Traditional Natural Medicine. Yes we are the masters of Thai Traditional Physical Therapy (Thai Yoga Massage) however, in our traditional based system we teach “ALL” of the Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy and Indigenous Protocols which do NOT Require touching at all! If all you know or can do is rub of people then now is the time to re-direct!

Have confidence! SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol works! It directly and immediately builds and improves all immune system quanta and measurable factors including those for fighting infections and in resisting all contagious issues. Not only is this a scientific fact, supported by an ever increasing body of science and scientific investigation, research trials, but, we have a mutli-decade of anecdotal history and evidence supporting the many benefits of the work we have been given.

SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy Benefits: Have a look at the article I published a couple years ago on this very topic… Why Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga?

SomaVeda® Ayurveda, Health Coaching and Counseling Has the Solutions and Adjuncts you need for the current Crises!

Only “Isolate” if you are sick or suspect your sick!

Health officials recommend relying on good judgment and “social distancing” to keep ourselves safe. Yet even as we limit our social interactions, it’s important to remember that we are all in this together. This realization is essential to our well-being. Throughout the long history of humankind (and of the animal kingdom, too) those who learned to collaborate and intelligently adapt have prevailed.

Ayurveda provides us with a host of ways to ramp up our immune system. Here are a few tips that may not be the first you would think of! Take a look, and please reach out to me if you have any questions.

  1. Support your agni: Our digestive system is the root of good health. Help keep it in good working order with plenty of whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat three nourishing meals a day. Breakfast should be warm and easy to digest, lunch should be your largest meal of the day, and dinner should consist of a light, warm, and easily assimilated dish, such as a soup, or lightly steamed veggies and rice. Stay away from processed foods, sugars, and heavy, oily foods. Dairy foods can also be problematic due to their mucus-forming properties.

  2. Consume a small amount of Trikatu daily before lunch: Trikatu is a Sanskrit word meaning “three spices” or “three peppers.” Trikatu is an Ayurvedic blend of equal parts of the fruits of black pepper (Piper nigrum), long pepper (Piper longum), and the rhizomes of ginger (Zingiber officinale). Its many benefits include the following:

  • Helps to clear excess kapha or mucus from the body
  • Supports healthy digestive, circulatory, and respiratory functioning
  • Helps rekindle agni (digestive fire)
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Scrapes away excess fat tissue (helpful for weight management)
  • Helps remove impurities and toxins (ama) from the body
  • Buy herbs here.
  1. Take amalaki: Amalaki (a.k.a. amala) contains a number of health-enhancing nutrients, including vitamin C and other antioxidants. Amalaki is widely available for purchase online as well as from stores that specialize in  natural foods or dietary supplements. Buy herbs here.

  2. Enjoy tulsi tea throughout your day: Tulsi, or holy basil, is a delicious form of basil that not only is a respiratory tonic, but also has antiviral qualities. It is also acts as a powerful nervine tonic that can help soothe anxiety, relieve stress, and rejuvenate the nervous system. Buy herbs here.

  3. Get good sleep: Sleep is of equal importance to two other key aspects of health: proper nutrition and regular exercise. This vital trio—nutrition, exercise, and sleep—form the three pillars of health. Sleep deprivation suppresses production of the infection-fighting cytokines, antibodies, and cells that are your body’s first line of defense against the virus.

No Vaccine, and with a scarcity of Masks & Hand sanitizers, Our Own Body’s Immunity is our best defense. Ayurveda has for centuries addressed the issue of how to develop and maintain immunity. Here is a few Immunity To-Dos for your family.

IMMUNITY TO-DOs

Good digestion — a prime requirement

  • It is advised to consume Samskrithamadhu (Ayurvedic Honey) with lime in warm water daily in the morning to keep the whole digestive tract healthy. Actually all Wild , Unprocessed Honey is Ayurvedic! Look for the wildest, unprocessed, local honey that you can find. Use liberally in a variety of forms from topically to orally as a medicant. Of course you can also forget that it is a traditional medicine and just use in your tea, coffee or as a snack!
  • As per Sushruta Sutrasthana 45/132 and Ashtanga Hrudaya Sutrasthana 5/51-52:
  • Madhura – sweet
  • Kashaya Anurasa -astringent sub taste
  • Rooksha -dry
  • Sheeta – coolant
  • Improves appetite and digestive fire (Agnideepanam)
  • Improves skin complexion (Varnyam)
  • Improves voice quality -Svarya
  • Laghu – light to digest
  • Sukumara -improves softness of skin
  • Scrapes the inner side of the channels (lekhanam)
  • Good for heart (hrudya)
  • Vajikarana -aphrodisiac
  • Sandhana -heals wounds and fractures quickly
  • Cleanses and heals (shodhanam ropanam)
  • Good for eyes (chakshushyam)
  • Prasadhana – improves skin qualities
  • Penetrates deep into body channels (sookshma marganusari)
  • Natural detox agent (vishaprashamanam)
  • Chakshushya -good for the eyes (vision),

  • Kushta -skin diseases
  • Krumi -worm infestation
  • Chardi – vomiting
  • Shwasa  -dyspnoea, chronic respiratory diseases
  • Kasa – cough, cold

  • Drink warm freshly boiled water with Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom, Ginger, Black Pepper, and Star Anise. These spices improve digestion and are antimicrobial.Fresh Tumeric roots
  • Add fresh Turmeric to your soups or prepare fresh Turmeric Pickle with each meal. Turmeric apart from its anti-inflammation properties is also very good at improving our digestion.
  • Chyavanaprasam (is a good source of C vitamin) – useful for deficient immune disorders, respiratory ailments (also useful in debilitating diseases where the immunity goes down drastically).
    Those who cannot take ghee/sugar of Chyavanaprasam may take Tiktakam Kwatham morning and evening. It is an ancient Ayurvedic herbal supplement tablet that is robustly anti-viral.
  • Agastya Rasayana (Leham) – useful for general debility, respiratory ailments including bronchial asthma, hiccup, cough
  • Dasamula Arishtam after lunch and dinner- is a very powerful and potent health tonic to boost immunity as well as strengthen the lungs and the respiratory system.
  • Pippalya Asavam is a very potent health tonic to kindle the digestive fire
  • But the best way to develop Immunity is to cook fresh vegetables especially sourced from a local organic farm. Many local CSA’s are instituting either delivery and or “Drive Through”, call them, maybe they can sort out your weekly CSA Fresh Produce Box!  *** With Coronavirus – Why risk going to the Grocery Store – when you can have fresh vegetables delivered from Farm

(Repost of an original article by Steve Barwick)

Are you worried about the so-called “killer Chinese coronavirus” that the news media suddenly has everyone all hyped up about? And are you wondering whether or not colloidal silver will help stop it?

Let’s take a look, first, at the supposed Chinese coronavirus “pandemic,” to see if we really have anything to worry about. Then we’ll take a look at the growing body of evidence for using colloidal silver should such a “pandemic” ever actually develop.

If you’ll stick with me to the end, I’ll even give you my thoughts on how I’d personally use colloidal silver should the new “killer Chinese coronavirus” begin spreading throughout the U.S.

A Quick Trip Down Memory Lane

Remember back in the 2005 when the famous “Bird Flu” from Asia was going to race across the globe and kill millions of innocent people?

The news media claimed that a bird virus somehow “jumped species” and began infecting humans. And they dubbed it to be a “looming pandemic,” meaning it would eventually wreak havoc on people worldwide, killing millions upon millions.

Here’s the part you might not know about: The big drug companies then used the “Bird Flu” scare to convince western governments throughout Europe, America and Canada into stockpiling billions of dollars worth of the worthless antiviral drug, Tamiflu.

Indeed, taxpayer money was used to buy up just about every available bottle of the antiviral drug, worldwide, as a means of helping “prevent a coming pandemic.”

In the U.S., alone, a staggering $1.3 billion in taxpayer money was used to buy up a “strategic reserve” of Tamiflu. And throughout the world, governments spent nearly $9 billion of taxpayer money on this same drug.

Then, just as suddenly as it appeared, the “Bird Flu” disappeared.

And governments got stuck holding the bag, with warehouses full of a virtually worthless “antiviral drug” that studies had later determined only cut one-half day off the course of a typical viral infection. And even then, the drug had to be taken before the infection started in order to be effective.

And that’s how the big multi-national drug companies make sure they never lose a penny on drugs they’ve developed, even when those drugs are rife with side effects and virtually useless for their intended purpose.

The powers-that-be simply scare the living bejabbers out of the public, first. Then they sell them something to “protect them.” A Mafia protection racket works no differently.

Indeed, as Dr. Peter Gotzsche of the famous Cochrane Collaboration states in his book, Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Health Care: “Organized crime is the business model of big pharma.”

3 More Quick Examples

Here’s another quick example: What about the Swine Flu “epidemic” of 2009? That one, the news media told us, was caused by a bird virus that mysteriously combined with a pig virus, and then mutated to infect humans.

At the time, the news media assured us that “tens of thousands of people” were already being infected throughout the U.S., and that “millions would die.” Everyone was urged to run out and get their flu shots as quickly as possible. Flu shots sold out in days. So did face masks.

But as TV investigative reporter Sheryl Attkinson later reported, it turned out that health authorities hadn’t even been checking sick people for the “swine flu” virus in the U.S.

Indeed, the CDC, FDA and other health authorities were simply attributing every single upper respiratory illness in the U.S. that year to the “Swine Flu,” so they could claim that it “killed 22,000 Americans” when, in reality, they couldn’t point to even a single death from the actual “Swine Flu” virus. Not one.

In reality, most all of the deaths that year were from the normal flu, which the CDC admits kills some 36,000 Americans per year, virtually every year. But millions of Americans were stampeded to get their flu shots, and the big vaccine manufacturers reaped hundreds of millions more dollars in profits.

Another example: Perhaps you’ll remember just six short years ago, in 2014, when the powers-that-be and their news media lackeys drummed up the Ebola panic, telling us it was “inevitable” that the dreaded Ebola virus would flood into the U.S. from the Congo “any day now” and “infect millions.”

Yet it never happened, even though we were repeatedly assured by the news media – for weeks on end – that Ebola-infected individuals were “on their way to the U.S.” and that the resulting death toll from the coming epidemic would be “unstoppable.”

What happened? Nothing.

The entire nation was panicked so drug-makers could get the governments of the world to fund development of a new Ebola vaccine with taxpayer money – a vaccine which, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out, was actually developed, and didn’t do a thing to stop the new 2019 Ebola outbreak in the Congo, in spite of some 130,000 doses being administered to the “most at risk” population in the Congo.

And who can forget about the most recent foreign virus scare, from 2017, i.e., the dreaded Zika virus scare?

We were told the virus was invading the U.S. from Brazil…that mosquitoes were carrying it throughout the southern U.S…and that it would cause genetic mutations in the babies of all pregnant mothers that got infected.

But what actually happened?

Err…nothing. It all quietly went away in a matter of weeks. The only thing keeping the scare going was the news media propaganda, replete with photos of pregnant women and dead or deformed babies. When the propaganda finally stopped, amazingly, the disease disappeared, along with all of the fear that had been drummed up.

Bats and Snakes and Mice, Oh, My!

Now, this year, 2020, we’re being treated to the so-called “killer Chinese coronavirus” scare.

The news media tells us this particular coronavirus is somehow passed to humans who have eaten bats, snakes and mice. Oh, my!

Then, the humans supposedly pass the virus they got from eating bats, snakes and mice along to other humans. Through coughing. Just like the flu.

Hmm. Has anybody checked to see if it actually is the flu? It’s flu season, after all. Right?

Even if this killer Chinese coronavirus is real, there’s one big problem with the scenario they’re painting for us here in the west: In Asia, people have been eating bats, snakes and mice for centuries. It’s nothing new. And it’s never caused a global viral pandemic in the past. So once again, I find myself saying, “Hmm.”

Today’s news media is extremely sophisticated, in terms of propaganda. They’re actually tagging this supposedly “looming new threat” with every emotional element they know causes a deep and abiding sense of fear in people. Think about it. The mystery virus, we’re told by the media, is:

  • From the darkest reaches of China, with the implication being that it’s “foreign”…it’s out to get us…and therefore it’s a far more serious threat than anything domestic.
  • It originates from bats, snakes and mice – yes, three creatures everyone in the west cringes at the very sight of. If you want to make a westerner squeamish with fear, just yell, “Look, snake!” or “Look, mice!” or “Look, bats!”
  • It’s “mutating rapidly out-of-control – in other words, it’s like a Frankenstein monster turned loose on the streets; you’d better lock yourself and the children inside, because the killer Chinese coronavirus is coming for you!
  • It’s killing people, for goodness sakes! (But you have to read the fine print to find out that so far, as of this writing, only 17 people have died from this virus in China, out of a population of 1.3 billion .)

These are just some of the emotional “triggers” the news media are using to make the “killer Chinese coronavirus” appear to be a looming global threat.

Repeat these emotional triggers often enough, day after day after day, on national TV, and couple them with dramatic photos of people in China wearing face masks for protection, and voila’, you get a panicked population here in the U.S..

Yes, even if not one word of the hype is true.

Why Do They Want to Promote Panic Now?

But why would the news media want to promote such a crazy state of global panic?

coronavirus propaganda - can colloidal silver help?Well, who could possibly benefit the most from drumming up fear of a foreign killer virus?

Do I really need to tell you? Yes? Okay then. The answer is this:

Vaccine makers.

And sure enough, a drug manufacturing company called Novavax announced this past week that their stock had soared some 68% virtually overnight due to the fact they’ve been working on a vaccine for the “deadly coronavirus from China.”

So there’s a brand new vaccine in the making for this so-called killer Chinese coronavirus. No big surprise, right?

Any salesman or marketer will tell you that the #1 tool for promoting sales is…drum roll, please…fear. If you make people believe their lives are in imminent danger, they’ll pretty much buy whatever you’re selling. And they’ll do so immediately.

And that’s what’s coming down the pike, folks: A long and sensationalistic news media campaign to scare people like you and me into submitting to an annual coronavirus vaccine, along with the usual annual flu shots. It’s coming. They’ll probably even start giving it to babies. You can bank on it. Novavax certainly is.

A Genetically Engineered Vaccine?

There’s one crucial piece of information you need to know about this new vaccine being developed for the Chinese coronavirus: According to Novavax, the vaccine uses a “recombinant nanoparticle.”

Yes, that means it’s a genetically engineered vaccine. Indeed, Novavax openly admits on their website for this vaccine that they developed it from the genetically engineered cells of…bugs. Yes, bugs. In this case, a crop-damaging worm called an Armyworm that, in nature, eventually turns into a moth.

But genetically modified worm cells won’t be the only thing you’ll get in your upcoming coronavirus vaccine. Nosiree. You’ll get genetically modified worm cells that have been infected with another virus! And it’s an insect virus. As Novavax states on their website:

“We produce our vaccine nanoparticles in cells originally isolated in the 1970s from the ovaries of the fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda).

The Sf9 insect cell line can grow in apparent perpetuity when infected with a baculovirus (BV), a virus that infects only insects.

Because a baculovirus can be engineered to carry one or more foreign genes of interest, it can be used to “program” (infect) the Sf9 cells to efficiently produce the desired protein or proteins that are correctly folded and biologically active.

Novavax uses the Sf9 system to construct recombinant protein nanoparticles that have the potential to provide increase protection.”

So they want to inject you and your children or grandchildren with the genetically modified cells of dead worms that have been infected with a supposedly “benign” insect virus, in order to protect you from a virus that originated from Chinese people eating snakes, bats and mice!

What could possibly go wrong?

As one of my favorite journalists, Jon Rappoport, has stated on his popular blog site, NoMoreFakeNews.com:

“…that means the vaccine will permanently alter the genetic makeup of anyone who takes the shot.”

Oh, joy. That’s one more vaccine I simply won’t be taking. How about you?

Can you imagine what it would take to convince people in the western world to take this new vaccine made of genetically modified worm genes combined with an insect virus? Well, if you thought “loads of fear” you’re right. That’s exactly what it would take. And that’s exactly what they’re giving us.

Author Jon Rappoport goes on to say,

“You automatically believe this Chinese coronavirus is a killer?

You automatically believe the press when they ratchet up the fear?

You automatically believe medical experts have found a virus and proved it’s causing human illness?

You’re now on the Gong Show on roller skates.

Congratulations.”

As you can probably tell, Jon Rappoport – who’s been writing about viruses and vaccines since 1987, including a best-selling book on the subject – isn’t too keen on the scare tactics being used by the news media to promote fear over non-existent “viral pandemics.”

He’s not even sure if this new Chinese coronavirus actually exists, or causes any disease at all in humans. Or is it all just media-driven hype to help promote the coming vaccine?

Don’t Let Them Get You Too Worked Up Over It

We’ve seen all of this far too many times in the past. There’s nothing new under the sun, and that includes deception from our government and corporate overlords, so they can make more money off of us and gain more control over us.

So don’t let the news media get you too worked up over this so-called killer Chinese coronavirus issue.

The powers-that-be always try to make these things sound like a “global pandemic,” when, in reality, to date, only about five hundred people have been infected in China.

And as of this writing, only 17 of those people have died, compared to 36,000 people

who die from the common flu each and every year right here in the U.S.

coronavirus propaganda from Drudge Report

Look, even a single death is one death too many. But 17 deaths out of 1.3 billion people is hardly the stuff “epidemics” are made of.

Clearly, you’re far better off preparing to fend off the good ole USA flu (which kills 36,000 Americans per year) than worrying about some obscure virus from China that mostly infects people who eat bats, snakes and mice.

The news media is really trying to hype this “killer Chinese coronavirus” out of all proportion to reality. They’re going overboard with it.

But like all of the other strange viral epidemics and pandemics we’ve been promised over the last ten years, this one, too, will most likely drift away with a whimper rather than go out with a bang.

Is Colloidal Silver Effective Against
The Chinese Killer Coronavirus?

Since the killer Chinese coronavirus is said to be relatively new, having only recently mutated from snakes, bats and mice to the point it could infect humans, there’s quite literally zero scientific info as to whether colloidal silver (or anything else, for that matter) would work against it.

But…colloidal silver has been known to work against a number of other coronaviruses. So let’s take a look at what the existing literature says:

According to Herbert Slavin, M.D., founder and director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine, Lauderhill, Florida:

“…A study at the University of Arizona recently showed ionic silver to be effective against the coronavirus that researchers use as the surrogate for SARS.”

SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The coronavirus behind SARS produces the same kind of respiratory syndrome as caused by the new Chinese coronavirus. According to a Business Wire article about the study:

“The study tested various ionic silver and copper levels to determine if they were effective against the human coronavirus strain 229E, a strain commonly used as a surrogate for the SARS virus in laboratory research.

The research demonstrated significant reductions of the virus within 1 hour (90 percent) and reduced virus levels to below the detection limit following 24 hours of exposure (99.99 percent).”

Wow. In this study, the researchers saw a 90% reduction in coronavirus levels within the first hour, and a 99.99% reduction within 24 hours.

“This research demonstrates that ionic silver has the potential to deactivate viruses in a relatively short period of time,” said Jeff Trogolo, Ph.D., chief technology officer, AgION Technologies, Inc.

That’s actually quite amazing. So now we know for sure that the ionic form of colloidal silver – aka electrically generated colloidal silver – works against at least one extremely serious form of coronavirus.

That’s heartening, right? But it’s certainly not all we have to go on. Let’s keep digging:

At the above link you’ll find a retrospective study of silver-based therapeutics and their effects on viruses, published in the Journal of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (June 2003).

The authors concluded that even with the SARS coronavirus, “swift reduction of viral loads” could be achieved using “oligodynamic Ag1” (i.e., electrically generated colloidal silver). Here’s what they stated:

“State-of-the-art, electrolytically produced ‘oligodynamic’ Ag1…offers distinct advantages and versatility of use over older and cruder formulations.

Possessing much smaller, subnanometer-sized particles, greater electrical potential and lower concentrations, it is more bio-available than other formulations.

Efficacy against the SARS-related coronavirus, for example, may be enhanced when nebulized Ag1 is inhaled. This should achieve swift reduction of viral loads, especially in the early stages.”

As you can see, the study authors recommend using the ionic form of colloidal silver, with a nebulizer, so it can be atomized into a mist and easily inhaled into the lungs. After all, the coronavirus is a respiratory virus.

So if you’d like to learn more about using colloidal silver in a nebulizer in order to get silver particles into your respiratory system during times of cold or flu (or coronavirus threat), see the following article and short video:

The study authors conclude by stating that electrically-generated colloidal silver appears to be effective against coronavirus even in its mutated forms. They wrote:

“The only known mechanism of resistance also appears to play no role notwithstanding the mutability of the coronavirus. Therefore no functional barrier to the virotoxic effects of oligodynamic Ag1 may be expected regardless of the rapidity or variety of mutations.”

So it’s unlikely the coronavirus can mutate to the point that silver is not effective against it. But that’s still not all I’ve found. Let’s keep digging:

The European Patent

Did you know there’s actually an international patent, from a Japanese chemical manufacturing company, for using silver ions to inactivate the coronavirus on walls, floors, countertops, clothing and other “touch surfaces”?

Well, there is, and you can read it, here:

According to the patent, silver ions can be used to completely inactivate the coronavirus on surfaces. They write:

“The present invention relates to an anti-coronaviral agent that is effective in treating coronaviruses and can be mixed with plastics, paints and the like. It also relates to an anti-coronaviral product made from fibers, resins and others that contain the anti-coronaviral agent.”

The researchers go on to say:

“…the problem can be solved by using a silver ion as an active ingredient and having the silver ion stably held by a carrier…which is useful for inactivating a coronavirus, and also relates to a method for inactivating a coronavirus using the silver ion carrier according to the present invention.”

Pretty exciting stuff, right?

Silver ions – the form of silver you can make for just pennies with any good colloidal silver generator – inactivates coronavirus on surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops. So it would likely do so inside the human body, as well, don’t you think?

At the very least, if the new killer Chinese coronavirus becomes a true threat here in the U.S., you can spray colloidal silver on your home’s touch surfaces each day (i.e., doorknobs, countertops, cutting boards, toilet seats, kitchen and bathroom sinks, etc.) in order to help stop the virus from being picked up and spread by others.

You could even run some colloidal silver in a cool mist vaporizer so silver ions would be spread as a mist throughout your home!

There’s a lot of peace of mind in that, don’t you think?

The Chinese Study

There’s also a very interesting clinical study out of China, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, in which researchers mixed silver nanoparticles with graphene (i.e., carbon atoms, known as fullerenes) and tested them against a coronavirus known to infect cats.

The researchers found that while graphene alone did not inhibit growth of the coronavirus very much, the graphene mixed with silver nanoparticles did.

This study, having been conducted on the feline coronavirus, reminds me of the time a reader wrote in about using colloidal silver to heal his cat that was afflicted with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), which, according to Cornell University, is actually caused by a coronavirus.

The reader wrote me to say that while their veterinarian had pronounced a death sentence on the sick cat, the colloidal silver saved its life. Here’s what he wrote:

“Using the “standard” colloidal silver concentration produced during a three-hour generation from our Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, we have successfully cured two different infections that conventional medicine has not consistently addressed.

In particular, Bruiser, our Japanese Bobtail, was sentenced to certain death by a local vet who declared that the kitty’s illness indicated by lab tests was FIP (feline infectious peritonitis) and was incurable.

Three other vets confirmed the FIP and the death sentence, including an area alternative medicine vet who refused my suggestion to try colloidal silver, and abused the kitty with vitamin shots to no avail.

For the first few months after Bruiser’s veterinarians failed to successfully address the FIP, my wife and I gave him an eyedropper full (approximately 1 teaspoon) several times daily. His appetite improved quickly and he started playing with his sister again, so we reduced the dosage to several times a week.

Bruiser is now another five years older (total six+ years) and is well and healthy. We occasionally fill an eye dropper and give him a drink if he seems to be feeling lethargic.

We feel that colloidal silver performed miraculously, where conventional ‘cat medicine’ and veterinarians failed the test!”

– Dale T., CO

Remember, this cat had an “incurable” coronavirus infection, very similar to what’s infecting people in China right now. And we have a number of similar accounts in the hopper. Here’s one more quick one:

“Hi Steve! I wanted to give you an update on ‘Ditto,’ my kitten with FIP.

He’s been on the Silver since last year. He should be a year old around May, they aren’t sure when he was born. He was pulled from his mom at a young age.

I’m just glad we ended up with him. Having FIP, most people just put them to sleep because it’s 100% fatal.

Well, the Colloidal Silver is keeping him alive. I’m so glad I came across your site. I will keep you posted as time goes on. THANK YOU!

BTW, at first, we just gave Ditto straight colloidal silver in place of her regular water, for a couple of days.

Then, we decreased the dosage to about a 1/2 cup of colloidal silver added to her water for the next couple of weeks.

When she was so sick she wasn’t drinking our eating, we had to give the colloidal silver to her through a medicine dropper. We gave her as much as she would take, and she actually loved it.”

– Shelly PB

Once again, don’t forget: FIP is caused by an “incurable” coronavirus that afflicts cats. Yet colloidal silver seems to be able to cure it quite handily. Which is good news for those of us who might be concerned about this new coronavirus coming out of China.

The Final Solution?

Finally, two highly respected researchers, Dr. Eric Gordon, MD and Dr. Kent Holtorf, MD, writing in the prestigious Townsend Letter for Doctors, believe colloidal silver is the answer to many forms of viral infections, including serious upper respiratory viral infections and viral pandemics such as those caused by coronaviruses.

They wrote:

“During the past 300 years, humanity has suffered 10 pandemics and several epidemic scares. Could the solution to pandemics have a simple answer? Has Nature always held the key to defeating pathogens in a simple Ag+ [i.e., ionic silver] molecule?”

They then point out in their scientific white paper titled “A Promising Cure for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection Pandemics, Including the Avian Flu: Has the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues Been Discovered?” that “the collective authoritative medical literature has documented efficacy of silver’s virotoxicity against over 24 viruses.”

What’s more, the authors state that the 200-plus viral strains known to cause upper respiratory tract infections, including most flu viruses, will also most likely succumb to the powerful antiviral qualities of very small particles of “oligodynamic silver” (i.e., a medical reference to electrically-generated colloidal silver being extremely powerful even in small quantities).

In fact, the authors point out that silver is likely going to be the answer to any future global viral pandemic, stating:

“A broad-spectrum anti-viral agent that really works is needed to combat over 200 viruses that cause Upper Respiratory Tract Infections. Undoubtedly oligodynamic silver fits this bill…Emerging medical studies confirm the stellar, broad-spectrum virotoxic efficacy of oligodynamic silver both in vitro and in vivo.”

What’s more, the authors state that not only has silver been demonstrated to decimate many of the viruses associated with deadly viral infections, but it has also been proven to decimate most of the well-known bacterial pathogens that cause serious secondary infections during a viral infection, including the following:

  • Streptococcus pneumonia
  • Corynebacterium diphtheriae
  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Haemophilus influenzae
  • Bordetella pertussis
  • Mycobacterium (Tuberculosis)
  • Inflammatory conditions of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Spring Catarrh
  • Pneumococci
  • Pneumonia

It’s these secondary bacterial infections that often kill the infected individual, once the flu virus has sufficiently weakened the body.

But colloidal silver’s powerful, broad-spectrum anti-viral qualities covers such a wide range of viral pathogens you can easily see why the report’s authors – both respected medical doctors – refer to silver as “the Final Solution to the Coming Plagues.”

Summing It All Up…

We’ve now got wall-to-wall 24/7 news media coverage of the so-called killer Chinese coronavirus, even though, as of this writing, only about 17 people have died and about 500 have been infected, out of a population of 1.3 billion Chinese.

That works out to one infected person per every 76 million people in China.

In other words, even at its epicenter, in China, the disease is barely causing a ripple. Yet the western news media assures us the world is about to end, and that a Chinese coronavirus that normally infects snakes, mice and bats is going to be the culprit.

We can also conclude with a great deal of confidence that the news media’s fearful drumbeats are most likely designed to ramp up public acceptance – yes, even stimulate public demand – for the coming new coronavirus vaccine, which, according to the vaccine maker, contains genetically modified worm genes infected with an insect virus.

Yummy. Fine dining at its best, right? Hey, they only have our best interests at heart. How could you possibly believe otherwise?

And finally, we’ve learned that while colloidal silver has not yet been tested against the so-called killer Chinese coronavirus, it has indeed been demonstrated in medical studies to be effective against other coronaviruses, such as the SARS coronavirus.

This has led natural health experts to proclaim that silver should be equally effective against newly developing coronaviruses, as well.

We’ve also seen that a Japanese chemical conglomerate operating out of Europe has patented a technique for using silver ions to stop the spread of coronaviruses on touch surfaces, such as doorknobs, toilets, kitchen and bathroom sinks, etc.

And we’ve seen that a medical retrospective of studies on the subject of silver’s effectiveness against viruses has led researchers to believe that colloidal silver would indeed be effective against modern-day plague viruses such as the coronaviruses.

So I’ll be sticking with my colloidal silver, should this viral outbreak in China actually become a worldwide pandemic.

What I’d Do if the Chinese Coronavirus Arrives

If I was concerned about catching this virus – which, at this point in time, I’m definitely not – I’d probably take an ounce of colloidal silver per day as a prophylactic measure, meaning, as a means of helping prevent the virus from taking hold inside my body should I ever be exposed to it.

If I thought I’d already been infected with the Chinese coronavirus, I’d certainly consider taking the following four simple steps:

1.) I’d drink an ounce of colloidal silver up to four times per day.

2.) I’d nebulizer colloidal silver into my lungs up to three or four times per day, for maybe five minutes at a time.

3.) I’d use a pump spray bottle with a fine mist nozzle to spray the various touch surfaces in my home with colloidal silver, i.e., kitchen countertops, sinks, toilets, doorknobs, etc. – anything people in my home commonly touch throughout the course of a day.

4.) I’d get plenty of bed rest, and drink plenty of fluids, as per any other upper respiratory viral infection.

Now, those are just my thoughts. They’re not a “prescription” from me, so please don’t take it as being so. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a journalist with a peculiar interest in natural health.

My main point is this: Don’t let the news media panic you with their fear-mongering tactics. They’ve had a nearly 20-year Reign of Error on predicting epidemics and pandemics. All of their predictions, for the most part, have been abysmal failures.

They say even a broken clock is right twice a day. And that’s true. So sooner or later the medical authorities are going to get one right. Maybe this one. But even then, we’ve got colloidal silver in our corner. So why worry? And why allow ourselves to be driven by fear?

Important Addendum: Where to Find Colloidal Silver

Where to find colloidal silver?If you’re brand new to colloidal silver usage and are wondering where to buy it, it’s important to know that you can find it in just about any well-stocked health food store in America.

It’s also available on Amazon and numerous other websites.

But it can be extremely expensive. In fact, because colloidal silver works so well against numerous forms of infection and disease, it has the highest price mark-up of any nutritional supplement in existence.

The amount of actual silver in a four-ounce bottle of colloidal silver is about five to 12 cents worth. (Yes, I said five to twelve cents.)

Yet because that small amount of silver is all it takes to decimate so many different kinds of infections, the manufacturers mark it up about 63,000%, charging a whopping $20 or $30 per bottle.

What’s more, manufacturers promoting the latest faddish colloidal silver product often charge far more per bottle – sometimes $35 to $50 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.

And people are more than willing to pay through the nose for these commercial colloidal silver products at health food stores because colloidal silver does indeed heal infections and prevent the spread of germs and disease faster and better than any other natural supplement on the planet!

So, commercially speaking, the retail price of colloidal silver at health food stores reflects its value to the consumer far more so than its true cost to produce. But here’s the good news:

Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver EdgeMake Your Own High-Quality Colloidal Silver for Pennies!

As I mentioned, typical health food store prices for colloidal silver can range from $20 to $30 for a tiny, four-ounce bottle.

But with a brand new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, you can make your own safe, pure, high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver for about36 cents a quart! In other words, you can make it at actual cost, just like the big colloidal silver bottlers do.

Compared to health food store prices, your first two one-quart batches literally pay for the entire cost of your new generator! Do you know of any other health product that literally pays for itself the very first few times you use it? The savings are absolutely astonishing!

Drugs don’t work: Psychiatric meds for depression and other mental disorders treat symptoms, can not cure

Drugs don’t work: Psychiatric meds for depression and other mental disorders treat symptoms, can not cure

Drugs don't work: Psychiatric meds for depression and other mental disorders treat symptoms, can not cure

By Anthony B. James

Dean and Medical Director of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine (SCNM)

Brooksville, Florida

I ask this question in every class. Have you or anyone you know been under medical care for depression and were you or the person you know ever prescribed chemical, drugs or pharmaceuticals? Every hand in the class goes up! I then ask if anyone in the class themselves or those family members or co-workers have ever been cured of their depression by using antidepressants or drug based therapies? If so, raise your hands. No hands in the last five years, not one hand has gone up when I asked the “If they knew of anyone cured” question.

I then go on to explain that not only is this a true observation that they and their friends are not being cured, but that the whole concept that depression and or mental illness could be cured with a drug based therapy is not what they have been led to believe. That in fact it is false and everyone in the mental health industry knows it.

It is possible that antidepressants might be able to address some of the symptoms of depression but they are not designed to cure depression and there in lies the root of the lie.

In the Waking Times, author Tracy Kolenchuk looks at the logic of a depression diagnosis. What happens when someone is cured of depression? Let’s say their depression was actually caused by a nutritional deficiency. When the deficiency is corrected, their depression goes away – but did they ever really have depression in the first place, or did they just have malnutrition? She argues that the depression was a symptom of malnutrition in such a case rather than a mental health condition or disease.

An example we use in this class on psychiatry and mental health we use the example of our preference for energy psychology (BET/ EFT/ Tapping) which declares the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the bodies energy system. If your diagnosed “depressed” and by tapping an algorythm of acupuncture or energy points while reciting a declarative statement and afterwards your no longer depressed and or your depression goes away then were you actually depressed clinically? We would say your symptoms of depression were in fact not depression at all but were interpreted as such… they were actually symptoms of energy disruption in the meridian or energy body.

Author Tracy mentions the “bible ” of mental health currently the DSM-5, formerly the DSM-4 etc. She says “The DSM-5, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, is the official medical bureaucracy book of mental disorders. You might be surprised to learn that there are no cures for any mental disorder listed in the DMS-5. Not one. The DSM-5 does not recommend treatments, much less cures. The only reference to the word cure that I can find is “eventual cures for these conditions“. Cured is not defined for any mental disorder. At this time, by omission, according to the DSM-5, there are no cures.  Maybe, someday, eventually, but today? Not.”

The FDA rules (Human Drugs) states clearly that any cure can only be the result from the prescription of a chemical pharmaceutical or prescription drug. This is why, almost exclusively to a patient… everyone diagnosed with depression and or other mental illness is prescribed a chemical pharmaceutical, antidepressents, sleeping pills, stimulants etc. Most of these drugs have severe side-effects, many of them such as drug induced neurologic disorders such as “tardive dyskinosis” are debilitating and permanent!

My copy of the DSM-4 and or #5 reads the same as hers and for every mental health professional, doctor nurse, psychiatrist, psychologist etc. It explicitly makes no claims of any kind, anywhere to offers any cure for any psychiatric diagnosis!

Of course for me this presents a strong questions. When we have a client who has been diagnosed with depression and find them to be malnurished and give them good , safe clean and appropriate food and their depression goes away… were they actually, medically and legally diagnosed with depression? So we would say the symptoms called or described as depression were actually somatic, or psycho-emotional symptoms of Malnutrition.

Sometimes when we assess a patient or client who has been medically diagnosed with depression and is being medicated we find they have a history of exposure to toxins and or poisons including past prescriptive chemical drugs. When the toxins, poisons and drugs were reduced, eliminated or removed and the symptoms , all of the symptoms of depression went away, were they actually depressed or were they exhibiting symptoms of poisoning? No! The client was NOT depressed at all they were poisoned!

I mention this in class and Author Tracy Kolenchuk mentions also in her article… Depression might be caused by physical and or mental abuse. No amount of a chemical, pharmaceutical, anti-depressant etc. will stop physical and or emotional abuse in a home, work or social environment! If we address the parameters of the abusive situation, remove the abuser or remove the abused from that environment and address the issues directly and the depression goes away… was it actually a mental illness at all or was the depressive symptoms evidence of abuse?

We are not suggesting we can cure depression with Tapping, nutrition, supplements, detoxification and or abuse remediation strategies , policing etc. Depression is a mental illness and mental illness can NOT be cured according to modern western medicine and psychiatry.

However, we can cure that which in almost every case could lead someone to exhibit the symptoms which might be misinterpreted as depression.

I agree wholeheartedly with Ms. Kolenchuk when she states in her article “Every illness can be cured.  An illness is cured when the cause has been addressed when, healing has completed, and when no more medicines are required.”

Of course, sometimes, it’s more complicated. Sometimes, a case of depression is simple, elementary. But sometimes, a single case of depression has several causes. When a case of depression has many causes, it consists of many elements of illness. Each element must be cured by addressing the elementary cause.

Curing depression, sometimes, can be trivial. So trivial – that it is cured before it is diagnosed as depression. Sometimes, depression is cured – even after it has been diagnosed, but the medical bureaucracies are forced to judge it to be “in remission” or maybe it wasn’t really a depression “disease”.

Depression caused by malnutrition can lead to toxic relationships, to consuming toxic chemicals or drugs. Depression, simple depression, can become a downward spiral of illness. When a case of depression has a long and complex history – the cure can also be long and complex. But depression can be cured.”

At the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine: Our traditions of Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy, Oriental Medicine, Traditional Naturopathy (Nature Cure) and of course Native American Indigenous Medicine have always offered concrete solutions and remedies for what is often misdiagnosed as mental illness and depression.

So, in consideration of the above ideas what are some workable, practical, functional strategies to bring relief from depressive symptoms?

1) SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies® Thai Yoga and Ayurveda offer a comprehensive treatment pathway that covers in one way or another all of the solutions to bring relief to and or from depression and or the symptoms of depression. The various symptoms of depression manifest in the body, the mind and the spiritual areas of life. The indigenous, traditional approach is holistic and covers all these areas in concrete ways. We also offer a national directory of Certified Practitioners that can assist you personally. Go to: SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Practitioner Directory.

2) Sustainable Eating, healthy diet and nutrition which is not contaminated, toxic, GMO and which is appropriate for individual and bodytype. Recommended are strategies which emphasize “Dense Nutrition” appropriate for your bodytype.

3) Detox: Reduce and or eliminate toxins both internal and external i.e. detoxification regimen. This includes reduces use of chemical pharmaceutical and or prescriptive drugs used to treat depression which themselves are dangerous and toxic.

4) Reduce Inflammation, edema, interstitial and allergy related. Consider a Complex Decongestion Therapy protocol. See CDT Protocol.

5) Herbal Medicine: Consider using traditional Herbs and teas with historical and validated use in reducing symptoms of depression such as St. Johns Wort. and Valerian Root.

6) Homeopathic Medicine: Consider using Homeopathic Remedies for symptoms of depression. There are quite a few depending on the patient drug profile. This includes the use of “Bach” and similar “Flower Remedies” such as Bach’s Rescue Remedy.

7) Trace Minerals supplements such as in Fulvic/ Humic/ Iodine etc.

8) Elemental Based Therapies: Light, color, sound/ music, nature- Earthing/ Grounding, Mineral-crystal etc.

9) Energy Psychology (SomaVeda® B.E.T./ EFT- TFT etc.)

10) Bio-Magnetic Therapy: (Static Pole Magnetic protocols), PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy)

11) Yoga and Meditation

12) Probiotics: probiotic supplements specifically designed to support positive mood by influencing the guy-brain axis through the micro-biome. The brain-gut axis is a bi-directional communication system, comprised of neural pathways, such as the enteric nervous system (ENS), vagus, sympathetic and spinal nerves, and humoral pathways, which include cytokines, hormones, and neuropeptides as signaling molecules.

13) Native American Medicine: Ceremony and Healing: It has been found that participating in traditional Native American Healing and medicine rituals such as “Inipi” or Sacred Sweat Lodge-Temascal, Caseuse or Chanupa Sacred Pipe or Breath Ceremony etc. can have tremendous curative powers over the symptoms of depression. The Native American Indigenous Church offers treatment options for functional medicine in the NAIC Tribal Wellness Center and Ceremony on a case by case basis.

The inability to cure disease is a deficiency of understanding than a lack or deficiency of remedies.

Thai Yoga Concepts: Sustainable Eating and Sustainable Health: Part 4 of 4

Thai Yoga Concepts: Sustainable Eating and Sustainable Health: Part 4 of 4

By Dr. Anthony B. James DM(P), ND, MD(AM), SMOKH

(Repost: Transcribed from a live talk at the Florida Sustainable Living and Perma-culture Conference, Plant City Florida, March 26, 2011)

Edible should also mean to buy local

Besides the lowered impact on the environment, another reason to buy local is to support your local community! We buy food from Peggy and Jeff at Eco-farm because they are our neighbors! That’s it, that’s the reason. We want to support them, they are up to good things, they are helping us to have a longer, healthier, happier life and by God, if I’m going to support anybody in the world, before I send 100 bucks to the American Red Cross, I’m going to send 100 bucks to Peggy and Jeff with my local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and buy some food with it. I need them and they need me and that’s why I do it. Buy local. Make it personal. If you don’t personally know someone that you can buy food from, you need to cure that by getting out and meeting somebody who grows food.

A clear conscience makes the food taste better!

These choices to bring consciousness to what and how we eat need to be personal and emotional. That is conscience, by the way, and we need conscience. Edible means to eat food with a clear conscience. To have a clear conscience about what you eat. What does conscience mean? I’ll give you my definition. Conscience is an emotional realization of the truth. So its very important for me to have a good conscience about what I eat and to emotionally know that I am doing the best that I can. If I don’t know that and I go ahead and I consume it anyways, then I am acquiescing to the possibility that the food may cause harm to me and to somebody else. That’s tough, I know.

5% Meat

Edible means to eat less meat. Research from many sources suggests minimum 95% plant-based nutrition and 5% animal products. That’s just science, its nothing personal. You want to live happier, healthier, longer lives? You want to support the soil on the inside and out? You want to support the ecology and reduce global warming? You want to have more support for democracy in the world? Eat less meat. And then, whatever meat you do eat, make sure that you’re supporting the local farmers, that it is organic, grass fed, free range, chemical free, antibiotic free, etc.

Don’t expect to change overnight! I use the 95/5 idea because it is unrealistic to expect everyone to become a vegetarian now. We have several thousand years of indoctrination into “eating meat equals prosperity” to overcome. We’re not going to be able to turn on a dime. You vegetarians and you vegans, get the freak off the backs of your meat-eating friends! Get off their backs, because what you resist, persists. The harder you push them, the harder they will hold on to those unproductive ways of eating. If you want people to change the way they eat then do it by example. Make the most nutritious, happy, fun-filled, exciting food that you can to share with them, so that they feel like it would be crazy not to eat your delicious food. That will make it easier.

95% Plant Based Diet

Edible means to prefer a plant-based diet. Aside from the morality question of cruelty to animals from factory production of animal based foods, animal food factories are the single largest users of antibiotics. 70% of all manufactured antibiotics go to animal food production. You need to know this especially if you are against the use of antibiotics and you think that the epidemic increase in antibiotic-resistant methicillin and staph bacteria is not a good thing. 70% of the antibiotics are not being used on human patients, but they are going to the cows that people eat. Then they go from their urine and their feces into the water supply. Then from aquifers into the water supplies of the hospitals where it is then recycled into the bodies of people with deficient immune systems, where they then become susceptible to antibiotic resistant bacteria. See? It’s the circle of life. Eat less meat. Prefer a plant-based diet.

Eat the widest variety of foods you can manage

Why? That’s the way foods naturally grow in the world, in a healthy ecosystem, and it is also the way they are supposed to come into our system, in great variety and in seasonal rotation.  Every type of food offers a different nutrient profile and benefit towards helping you living a full healthy and happy life. Give every good thing in nature the possibility of sharing its life enhancing qualities with you. Variety and diversity strengthen your immune system and make your taste buds happy. There is research that suggest that rotating your foods and diet can reduce allergies and may even be part of a productive strategy for mental and emotional health. Ortho-molecular Medicine and research specializes in this field.  Try more. Try everything!

For everyone sake grow something!

Grow a good perma-culture based garden in a little square foot of land- you should be able to grow 6, 8 or 10 different kinds of plants. If you don’t have that little plot then invest in a pot of some kind and put an edible plant, vegetable, herb, or flower in it. Practice becoming a more conscious person by nurturing and caring for it until it matures and then eat it! Everyone can and should grow something. No reason why not!

I’m serious, grow something to eat!

ANYTHING! Everybody here should be growing one food item. Grow anything! Grow a chive! I mean come on, grow something. Anybody can grow a Chia pet. You can eat them! It’s about elevating your consciousness and bringing energy, attention, consciousness, breath and pressure to changing your environment. GROW SOMETHING.

Perma-culture experience in Thailand

Go to Thailand, you’ll see farms that if you’re not paying attention you would never know it was a farm because it looks like an overgrown jungle. You say, “What do you mean, this is a farm?” And they say, “This is a multi-generational farm! We’ve been farming here for years.” You say, “But we’re on a trail in the jungle!” And they say, “No, no, you’re on a trail through the farm!” You look around saying, “What farm? What are you talking about?” The guy reaches out and plucks a leaf off a bush and says, ‘”Put this in your mouth.” You take a bite of it- its green tea! “Whoa! Oh! There are tea plants here!” He says, “No, there are ten thousand! This is a tea plantation.” This all happened to me and I thought I was in a jungle. I said “Well, what is all this other weeds and under-growth around the base here?” He says, “Oh, that’s edible morning glories, and these are coffee.” Did you know coffee and tea grow together? They can! You don’t have to mono-culture either coffee or tea! I said “Oh, well what is this kind of viny thing here that looks like it’s choking the life out of these plants?” “Oh,” he says, “that’s edible morning glory.” Turns out to be one of my most favorite edible green foods on the whole planet.

Reasonable eating means seasonal eating

Edible means to eat seasonally for your region of the country. A billion years of survival data in our DNA tells us that the most appropriate foods for us to eat at any given time are the foods that are ripe and ready for harvest right this moment. That’s what we are supposed to be eating right now. If you don’t know what that is, well that shows the measure of separation from the environment that you are currently suffering. The proper treatment is education and experience!

Stick out your nose, open up the window, look outside, talk to a friend and say, “Hey! It’s the end of March, what is in season? What foods are in season in my geographic area?” Seek them out as your primary foods. It will change! The foods you eat are supposed to rotate, just like in nature. The soil isn’t always the same. The variety that you see in the natural ecology in December is not the same as you see in March. There will still be an equally great diversity but it will just be different. “Same same but different” as the Thai’s say “Munkan mai munkan.”

Edible should mean- eat only foods that you know you’re not allergic to!

Stop eating that which inflames you! I’d bet that everyone in this room knows or suspects something that they eat that they are allergic to. When you eat foods that are allergens, they cause a histamine reaction in your brain. This triggers an inflammatory response in your tissue, which triggers edema. Inflammation and edema are the hotbeds of disease. So one of the ways to prevent disease through your eating habits is to stop eating the foods that you already know you’re allergic to. That means stop eating any food that when you eat it regularly it makes you feel bad. It’s really easy, but we’re so out of touch with our inner ecology that we don’t know this.

Consider your overall attitude towards eating new food in general, if it has a label, READ IT.

Don’t buy it until you actually read the label. You will be surprised how many times you will put something back that you were 99% sure you were going to buy after you read the label.

Don’t waste food- compost food waste

Composting is one of the very best ways to justify our existence on this planet. It’s one of the proven simple technologies that actually feeds the earth. As a practice it runs contrary to the trends overwhelming the eco-systems and environment with harmful waste. Composting keep the useful biomass out of the land fill and on the soil where it belongs. Keep in mind that “circle of life” thing. Using your own compost to enhance the soil of your garden, or your friends garden will help insure more vital and amazing foods. These foods have more minerals and bio-available nutrients and healthy bacteria. Composting supports the process of these foods becoming our essential medicines. Everyone should compost.

Make the best possible food choices according to your understanding

Before shopping, make a list- if it is not on your list it is probably not edible. Involve your family, friends, church, social network or group in a food project, or join one. Edible should be part of that.

Make your food beyond interesting and nutritious

We have to be ninja. I’m a ninja for food! You want to know I am a healthy food ninja? How I went from a raging carnivore to a plant based diet? Know how I do it? Julie and I, we craft in the secret dark recesses of our attic with our candles and our sigils on the floor and our sacred tomes of secret knowledge (I mean favorite recipe books) and we flip the pages and we recite the ancient magic incantations of holistic, organic, local, fresh, seasonal ingredients and we put them (boil, boil, toil and trouble) into our cauldron (our safe crokery) and we put our own energy and our own sacred essence in to that boiling cauldron of magic elixir and we call it to allurement, we call it to glamor, and healing affirmation and we call it to create life and we call it to manifest our vision for the world as we see the swirl of the world inside that pot and then we serve that on the table and its an irresistible force. People are drawn to it, “OOOOHHH! What is that?” And Julie goes, “Dinner!” Then they eat and they are like, “oh, uh, um, how?” You can see it, the trying to adjust, trying to adapt, trying to encapsulate the idea that the tastiest thing that’s ever crossed this inner and outer brain barrier, has no meat! And it’s tasty! And it’s medicine! Then they start to make these little adjustments. “Hey, do you have a recipe? What are the ingredients? Is it hard to make?” “Nah,” we say, “you just throw some healthy ingredients, veggies, herbs, grains, herbs, minerals in a bowl and stir it up! It’s easy!” And then they start to do it and next thing you know, you’ve saved a soul, you’ve got another person who is going to live a longer, healthier, happier life.

Food and eating strategies need to be based on non-violence

We are utterly and completely dependent on the viruses and the bacteria in the soil for our life. Somehow we lost that connection and so when we begin to experience them in our body, we think that they are foreign invaders and so we have to cut, kill and burn them. We think we have to destroy them so we do the same thing as when we apply pesticide to the soil outside, we kill them! Then the soil is no longer is able to sustain the biodiversity that life is dependent upon, monoculture prevails and diversity dies. Inevitably there is a dissolution of life and a cascading domino effect on other ecologies and eventually everybody draws the same picture: if we continue to create monoculture, the world is going to be unsuitable for human existence at a definite point in time. Everybody comes to the same conclusion. If we do the same inside of our body, guess what? We come to the same conclusion. We don’t need to kill the bacteria in our body, we don’t need to kill the viruses in our body; they have ALWAYS been with us. We need to learn how to be an ecosystem within our selves and we need to learn how to communicate. Non-violent communication, how about that? NVC applied to your body’s internal ecology. I am not trying to kill the bacteria in my body; I am negotiating an existence that is compatible, mutual, and supportive. That’s what my food strategies are about.

If it’s not right we fix it not kill it

People will say, “Well, what about infection?” Yeah? What about it? What do you do when the soil PH is not right? What do you do if you look at the soil and the mycology and bacterial structure of the soil is not right? Do you then kill it? What do you do? You AMEND it. You actually bring in plants and structure that out of their life cycle will create the balance that you want. Why? Because that is sustainable. If you dump chemicals on it, it will chemically give you a balance on a test and then you will have the imbalance that will be the consequence of the chemically induced state and it won’t be sustainable. The longer you do that to the soil and the longer you force it to produce, eventually it looks like desertification. You will kill it and reduce its ability to sustain life at the microbial level to a point to where it is no longer possible for life to be sustained. The soil will turn to sand and rock, no longer able to sustain life. We are going to end up doing the same thing to our selves because we don’t eat right and we don’t have productive eating strategies. We need to bring the same sustainable strategies to eating that we would to the soil, inner soil and outer soil, that’s what I’m saying.

Do you want to know how to get connected to the earth?

The easiest way in the world to re-establish and to revitalize your connection to the earth is to bring consciousness to what you eat. It’s so simple and you don’t have to get all big and spiritual about it. My late, adopted father Chief Floyd Real bird would have said it the same way. He would have said, “I don’t give a damn about ritual and external ceremony, the only thing mother earth cares about is how you live! Mother earth doesn’t care if you do a smudge, you light some sage or you whoop a pipe around in the air. Mother earth doesn’t care! Mother earth is all about how gentle you walk on her, how compatible you are with her other children and these kinds of things.” It is more important who you are than what you do. You want to get in touch with the planet, you want to get in touch with your roots, and you want to get in touch with your most fundamental spiritual essence? You want to get in touch with the source of life? Bring consciousness to your food. It’s the easiest way.

I am the laziest person that you’ve ever met in your whole life so I’m looking for the easiest way. What is the easiest way I can make all these universal connections? Cause’ I’m a lazy guy, right? So I’ve figured it out. The easiest way to handle all those things is to bring consciousness to what I eat! And guess what? Just by doing that not only do I get to live healthier and happier and be more functioning, but my family does too. Just by doing that alone, I lost 50 lbs in the last 2 years. I haven’t been on a diet for one minute. I eat like a freaking horse because I love to eat! I just brought consciousness to my food and my body. Soil harmonized. It equalized. It balanced. It looks like me 50 lbs lighter.

Get down on the food chain

Lets run through a couple of things. One, consider eating lower on the food chain. Ever hear the justification of “the little things eat the bigger things and then it goes on until we’re at the top of the food chain eating every damn thing else?” When you start thinking of sentient beings in the company of other sentient beings, that’s not going to work is it? It is not sustainable if we eat and or consume everything else. It’s not going to work! We need to eat a little bit lower down. On the food chain we are about where the herbivores are. Eating much above that doesn’t work and looks like were going to destroy the planet. We have that whole food chain thing wrong and we need to get down on the food chain. As a perma-culture person would say it, we need to get our hands dirty!

Get your hands dirty

What do you have to do if you want to know what is going on with the soil?

The finest, most sophisticated technological instrument ever created for agriculture is the finger! I think that’s why we have them. Some people say it’s for tools. Maybe if a tool is a hoe but that’s not the only reason we have fingers. We have fingers so we can point at each other and say “Hey! You aint’ doin’ the right thing!” We have fingers so we can put them in the dirt and know what’s happening. That’s how we make our connection, right? Want to develop superpowers? Spend more time with your fingers in the dirt. In yoga we call them Siddhas. You want to develop Siddhas? You want to become a Reishi yogi, a magnificent supernatural superman or woman? I’ll give you a secret- get your fingers dirty, get your hands dirty and it will change your life.

Change your definition of what is “edible”

Second, consider changing your definition of “edible.” I want to challenge what that means. One idea that I would recommend to you is to bring consciousness to your definition of the word edible because it may be enlightening and very helpful for you. In that context I have a corollary, and I want you to be crystal clear about this: “Substantially the same as food,” does NOT equal food. Whenever you see something that’s labeled, marked or promoted to you as “substantially equivalent to food,” that means it is not food. Food is food and anything that’s not food is something else!

Oil, tar and coal and their derivatives are not edible

Most likely the “substantially equivalent” is chemical and it actually a derivative of crude oil. 99% of “substantially the equivalent of food,” is a derivative of oil, and as a species we were never meant to consume oil or oil byproducts.

We evolved as a species over billions of years from plankton to human beings or if you take the creationist biblical perspective it has only been 6 or 7 thousand years. However you do it, the entire time we have been here, it is only in the last hundred years that we have been exposed to byproducts of carbon and oil because they were underground. There were a few sources of natural tars and natural oils but 99% of humanity didn’t have access to them. So biologically in our DNA we do not have the ability to metabolize crude oil in any form, derivative or solvent. Oil is one of the primary ecologic contributors that has contaminated our food supply. One of the biggest things we can do is be clear that “substantially the same as food,” does not equal food.

Edible should mean organic, fresh, whole, non-GMO food

If it is not organic we should automatically question whether or not it is adulterated and to what degree. We have to keep the idea in the back of our mind that there are no known safe levels for any chemical in the human body. It is not a true or scientific statement to say that the amount of contamination with XYZ chemical has been deemed to be safe for humans. Don’t take my word for it, research it yourself and you will find that scientifically speaking, there are no known safe levels of any chemical substance in the human body. If anybody says otherwise then they actually haven’t looked at the science.

Edible should mean the reduction of adulterated food consumption

Adulterated food includes foods that on the surface are advertised as “natural” or “real” but have been adulterated by the manufacturing process and include things such as trans fats, hydrogenated fats and oils, high fructose corn syrup, refined sugar, aspartame, etc. Though these foods are advertised and promoted as natural or as derivatives of natural substances, they are not! From a marketing standpoint all additives, chemicals and constituents that are derived from oil are technically derived from natural substance because oil is natural. All of them, which are coming from the parent, are equally harmful, including baby oil! Just because it says “baby” doesn’t mean that it is healthy for you. For example, baby oil contains Benzene. Benzene is considered to be one of the most deadly, dangerous, immune disrupters that man has made. Plutonium is the most dangerous, but Benzene completely, immediately and instantaneously disrupts your immune system. It’s in baby oil and chapstick!

Edible should be local

Weigh and measure what you eat based on how far it travels to get in your mouth. The further from you the origin of your food is the higher the carbon footprint. That means more oil in the air. Your carbon footprint is your contribution to environmental toxicity, contamination of water, support of the fossil fuel industry, oppression of native peoples due to deforestation, etc. All of this eventually comes back around to increase your own toxic exposure. That’s the way it works. I have my favorite foods that come from other countries.

For me, it has been a challenge to reduce the amount of food that comes from foreign countries. That includes herbs, spices, the kind of rice that I prefer, etc. It has been a real challenge and I’m still working on it. I’m not perfect at it, I’m transitional and it’s very hard when you have a beautiful kitchen like I have that is fully stocked with spices and 8 different kinds of rice and all kinds of stuff. It all represents an investment. See, mentally I have a problem tossing out everything in my closet that has a foreign origin because I can’t help but think of the economics of it. However, when I start to think about the economics of it, I start to be able to let it go a little better.

(Re-Post: Transcribed from a live talk at the Florida Sustainable Living and Perma-culture Conference, Plant City Florida, March 26, 2011)

An amazing possibility is occurring right now!

Right now this second there are groups just like the group in this room who are having the exact same conversation about exactly the same topics in about a hundred different locations around the planet! Right now this minute! That’s never happened before, so that’s our possibility of hope. But what are we going to do with it? That’s the question.

Its one thing to philosophically get it and it’s another thing to have practical solutions. I’m going to go through some practical solutions. We’re ahead of the curb, right? I’m a hopeful guy, I actually do believe that there is hope that we can come out of this and we can actually survive in a good way. That is what I work for.

What’s the core issue with sustainability?

I want to focus on what I think is really the fundamental issue in sustainable eating and health. Pardon me if this is elementary because I know there are some experts in the room, but I’m just speaking across the board.

I believe the number one issue is food. I have all these doctor technologies and no matter what I learn I keep coming back food as the number one issue. It’s the one issue above all others that we actually have the capacity to substantially control. So because we have the ability to have some input in relation to what we eat, where it comes from and what the impact is of our food on ourselves and on our environment, it’s one of the places where we can add our influence, both internally and externally. That’s why I choose to focus on food. I’m going to keep coming at it from a health point of view because I just can’t help it!

Whatever it takes to live a long and happy life!

Hippocrates said “let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” So what is medicine? There are a lot of misconceptions about what medicine is. The definition of medicine is same as the definition of sustainable living! There’s a source of conflict and confusion right there. We compartmentalize and create distinctions and say, “medicine is over here, and food is over here.” There is some crossover but it is a misconception and a misperception that they are unrelated. Let’s go back to the definition of sustainable living: Whatever it takes to live a long healthy and happy life, while respecting and caring for the community of life in which we live. Well guess what? That’s the definition of medicine too: whatever it takes to live a long and happy life. Let food be your medicine, let food be part of your strategy of whatever it takes. Let whatever it takes to be happy be your food, so let’s stop eating things that don’t make us happy. That’s a real simple way to say it isn’t it?

Stay away from the dominant cultures medical system

Statistically speaking, other then changing your eating habits the number one thing you can do to prolong your life and guarantee that you’ll have a long healthy life in this country (I’m not necessarily talking about the whole world) is to do whatever it takes to stay out of hospitals and to stay out of the conventional medical system.

The current system has failed. Where is the outrage?

I’m a pastoral medical doctor so I get a copy of JAMA and the different journals that are published under the banner of JAMA. According to JAMA, give or take, some 380,000 people a year die directly from medical malpractice. I think this is a conservative estimate because it might be a little self-incriminating. We drive down the highway and see billboards of the sheriff with the reflective glasses and the words “drive drunk and pay the price.” We see MADD billboards with the cameo of the teenage son or daughter who will not live a long and happy life because of an incursion due to drunk driving. Virtually every city in the country including has federal, state and local funding of millions of dollars for the formation of DUI task forces, random roadblocks, and breathalyzers. There have been 12,000 constructed expansions of prisons in the US just to take the additional prisoner loads of DUI’s into the jail system and the legal system. There are about 48,000 deaths a year on average as a result of drunk driving.

It gets worse

I’m not saying that I support drunk driving, but compare that to 380,000 deaths a year due to medical malpractice. When is the last time you were driving down the road and you saw a billboard with a man or a woman in a white jacket with a stethoscope hanging around their neck with a “have you seen this person? Call “1-800-STOPDOC” to report that you have seen one of these people wanted for murder, mayhem, malpractice and for just damn not trying to help you and being part of a system that kills you at 4, 5 and 6 times the annual rate of drunk drivers.” That’s not the bad news; it gets worse. I’m not quoting the national inquirer, although technically it might be more accurate and I’m sorry to say that.

According to these medical statistics, another 400,000 die simply from unsuccessful procedures that were properly applied. In other words, it wasn’t malpractice. They did exactly what was the standard medical practice according to standard medical disciplines, according to standard medical procedures. 400,000 people died from operations that were considered a complete success. They did everything right and the patient died. These numbers are per year, not in the last 100 years, but the annual numbers! 400,000 people died from side effects.

There are no side effects!

There is no such thing as a side effect! How many people have heard that there is such a thing as a drug side effect? You have been misled and that is a programming issue and propaganda issue because there are actually NO side effects of any known prescription drug or procedure. There are secondary effects that we don’t want, which are less popular. You can get a copy of a Merck Manual or the Physician’s Desk Reference to Drugs and for every single drug there will be the primary benefit listed and immediately there will be up to 92 different secondary effects. For marketing, they are referred to as “side effects” as if they are optional.

A chemical doesn’t know what a side-effect is

A relative of mine has an advanced degree in pharmacology. He would say that it is all chemistry- you ingest the chemical and get the effect. The chemical doesn’t know primary from secondary. The chemical doesn’t know what a side effect is, it just does what it does. For many of these drugs there are up to 92 side effects and I’ve even seen a drug that has more than that. Generally there are between 70 and 90 secondary effects and about a third of them are fatal. That’s how you get these 400,000 deaths. We need to be logical, so how do we get there? That’s not the malpractice, that’s when everybody agreed that it was appropriate for you and it still caused you harm.

The source of your primary health care has to be your eating habits

So what is the alternative? If we are not going to rely on the conventional medical system as our primary health care, then “let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.” The source of your primary health care has to be your eating habits. You have no choice! There is no other alternative. I know some of you that might be offended to even hear me say so, but I am giving you my professional medical advice. As you would with any doctor, or perhaps as you should do with any doctor, take my advise or leave it.

Health is a fluid balance between toxicity and deficiency

Traditional Chinese Medicine theory postulates that health is a dynamic equilibrium between internal and external pernicious influences. Health is a constant balancing act. This could be anything that reduces our capacity to live the full natural possibility of life or whatever life as a human being on this planet could be. That includes everything from the environment and landscape, both internal and external. Internal pernicious influences are what take place when harmful influences bridge the world-skin barrier and become part of us causing changes within us. This includes mental and emotional psychology, the ecology of our inner world and how we handle toxins, virus, bacteria, and cancers. The external landscape is everything outside of your skin that has the ability to affect your longevity, health and well being.

We can also talk about the 5 elements because we have fire, earth, metal, water, and wood, or in Chinese medicine and Ayurveda we have ether, air, fire, water and earth. Any way you slice it, whatever is out there is part of us and then we have this really funny philosophy that says that we are also part of everything that’s out there.

We are children of the soil

So health is about managing this equilibrium between the inside and the outside, the two landscapes. Sometimes we use the word soil, and I know perma-culture people really want to talk about the soil a lot; in fact, that’s one reason I love them! The first book I ever read on the soil was Secrets of the Soil and I developed this whole different idea about the ground and what the nature of the soil was. I learned that it was alive and there was energy in it and that it was communicating to me!

Of course I knew from my bible lessons as a child that eventually I would become the soil. I thought, “Whoa! Dirt to dirt! So what you’re saying is that I’m actually a child of the soil and that I am soil in a flesh bag walking around for a while and then I go back to my origin which is the soil?” Somewhere I had lost the connection or the conscious knowledge that I was really just a bag of dirt walking around. What is my function then, as mobile dirt?

I realized that part of the reason why we are so unhealthy is because we have been separated from our proper relationship to our mother ecology, which of course is the soil. Now that we are ego-encapsulated soil flesh bags we think that we are separate and somehow isolated from the total environment that surrounds us. We pretend and we act and we create structures that are based on this false idea that we are somehow separate from the soil. We no longer rely on the soil as our nutrient base and we no longer honor the fact that its part of our lifestyle to sustain the soil.

What is my path in life?

When we say, “Oh, I’m looking for my path,” we are really wondering, “What is the purpose of a human being?” A human bring is a mobile expression of the vital life of the planet. There are probably lots of purposes for human beings but part of the reason why we were given legs in the first place was to act as landscapers, caretakers, moderators and enhancers of the vital communication capacity of the earth that is expressed in the life of the soil. It is the proper time to rejoin the community of other sentient beings and the earth which all return their essence to the dirt. You might say, “Oh my god, that’s just crazy!” You know what? If you start to think about it like that for a minute, I think some things might come clear.

We are not that special

Like the Native Americans say, “What is a human being? An upright two-legged being.” No different than any other! No different than the four-legged, no different from the ones with wings, no different than the ones that swim. No different than the ones who crawl through the earth and no different than the microbes. Guess what? Microbes are sentient. How about that? Bacteria is sentient, virus is sentient. Like the Dalai Llama says, “ALL LIVING BEINGS ARE SENTIENT.” We pray for all sentient beings, so when we are praying for all sentient beings we pray for the virus and the bacteria.

Thai Yoga Concepts: Sustainable Eating and Sustainable Health: Part 1 of 4

Thai Yoga Concepts: Sustainable Eating and Sustainable Health: Part 1 of 4

Veda Vyasa Award August 2017

By Anthony B. James DNM(P), ND(T), MD(AM), OMD, Ph.D., RAAP

(Transcribed from a live talk at the Florida Sustainable Living and Perma-culture Conference, Plant City Florida, March 26, 2011)

Welcome! I am so happy that you all have come to share this Sustainable Living and Perma-culture conference with us and explore what sustainability is. There is clearly a lot of passion in this group about what sustainability is and what a sustainable life means. I’ve been going around and talking to lots of beautiful people with really succinct, clear and dynamic visions about what they are trying to achieve. These are big goals!

I am a medical doctor (Monastic Physician), Traditional Naturopathic physician, Oriental Medical Doctor, Vidya (Classical Indian Ayurvedic Physician) and Aachan i.e. traditional master teacher/ professor of Thai Traditional Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy. I am what you think of when you hear about alternative medicine or complementary medicine. What you think of when you hear about wacky medicine that actually has conscience. I am one of those people and I’m proud to be one of those people. I teach medicine, alternative medicine, holistic health, yoga, and everything to do with what it means to try and survive in this world as a healthy balanced person.

At first when I was brainstorming for this talk sustainable living I thought, “well maybe I can talk about 10 principles of health for sustainable living.” The more I thought about it the more I realized “well that’s just crap! I’m not going to be able to do that!” First of all, anybody who knows me knows that one thing I like to do is get behind the curtain and go behind the scenes to get to the real issues because I’m one of those crazy doctors that thinks that in order to balance and achieve optimal health we actually have to go to the origin of the symptoms of our dysfunction. The problem with that is that there are a lot of causes, and some of them are kind of big! There is such a thing as geo-pathic stress, there is such a thing as economic stress, there is such a thing as social stress, there is such a thing as ecological stress, interpersonal stress, toxins, poisons, bacteria, viruses, chemicals and especially radiation right now. Add to that mix of external stress the internal truth that we can be our own worst enemies. Whew!

All these things are contributing to whether or not you feel happy and well right now in this moment. How are we going to achieve that? Even more complex, how are we going to sustain it? Oh my god! That’s a complicated issue. But we have to start somewhere. I have taken some insight from some of the other presentations here and I may not be able to remember the individual names of the presenters because I was so tied up in the really beautiful messages that they speak. I want to always pay respect that I learn from other people, that’s basically how I got here. I’ve been fortunate to have really good role models for sustainable ideas about personal health, wellness and balance and that’s what I’m trying to perpetuate.

Our common survival is linked

So I am Dr. Anthony James and I live here. This is my home, this is my classroom and this is where I teach every day. I want to welcome you to share our space and to bring your energy and contributions on a personal level because I think one of the core concepts that we have to focus on in sustainability is that while we get caught up in the environment, we get caught up in ecology, we get caught up in the external landscape issues, the bottom line is that we are people and we are concerned with ourselves and each other. One of our primary motivations to try and find sustainable solutions to the questions that the world is giving us right now is so we can survive as humans, so we can survive as people! I think one of the most important ideas that we have for sustainability is that we keep reaching toward connectivity with each other and that we don’t let these issues separate us and cause us to fracture and to go off in our own little survival corners with our own little survival strategies. I think our survival as a species or as individuals is absolutely connected to us remaining connected to each other. No matter the kinds of strategies we’re working with, we’ve got to hang! Our survival is dependent on one another. No matter what else I say it’s always going to be in the context of community because the more research I do, the more I realize that I don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of surviving long term if you personally aren’t going to help me do it. It’s not going to happen! On many simultaneous levels I am completely dependent on my community for survival. No matter what our individual strategy of sustainability we have to keep bringing it back to our family, to our friends, to our community, which are all flesh and blood people. You know, “you prick at them, they doth bleed” kind of thing, that’s the core of it right there.

In this community I know we have some people in our midst that are hardcore sustainable educators and perma-culture educators. But we also have a few people here who don’t really know what the word means. They’re not really sure- What is this sustainability thing? What does that even mean? I am going to start with that and then take my marching orders and try to get through as much of what I have to talk to you about as possible. I know you’re probably not going to remember anything other than the “hello,” however, I also believe that there is such a thing as the Akashic record. I also believe that the ‘stress adaptive human biological transformational machine’ that is sitting in the chair has an absolute perfect ability to mimic, record and adapt to external environments and circumstances. If in fact I can say anything at all that has substance and resonates with any core truth within you then you will have a perfect memory for it and at some point you will recollect it in context, although you may not remember where it came from and I’m OK with that.

What are the principles of sustainable living?

Whatever it take to live a long, healthy, and happy life while respecting and caring for the community of life in which we live.

Working to improve the quality of our life, enabling human beings to realize their full potential for life expression. Building self-confidence and leading lives of dignity that are in and of themselves fulfilling.

-Living in such a way as not to be a burden by creating suffering for ourselves or others while seeking health education, a decent living, political freedom of expression, human rights, and freedom from violence. Sustainable means stepping away consciously from the origin cycle of the creation of suffering for ourselves and for others.

Some of you might recognize that last phrase. It is the last statement in the Metta Sutra Buddhist mantra that is considered to be the most perfect example of Bodhichitta or generating a perfect thought. An example of the most perfect thought a person can have in their head is, “May all beings be happy, may all beings be free from suffering.” Regardless of high, low or middle status, may they be free from suffering. The last sentence in the Metta Sutra says, “May I no longer participate in the origination cycle for the creation of suffering for myself and for other beings.” Essentially those are the principles of sustainable living!

We have the technologies, ideals and philosophies of sustainable living, but how do we get there? How do I no longer participate in the creation cycle of suffering for myself and for other beings, and then how do I explore, experience, and receive the effect of that philosophy? This is where we get into our green technologies. We get into to our democratic social imperatives, our holistic medical paradigms, and we get into our geologic viewpoint of “think global, act local.” These are technologies to actually implement the imperatives.

I am connected to the global paradigm of life

I know that I want to say no to pain, suffering, disorganization, disease, manipulation and coercive ideologies. How do I do that in real terms for myself, my family, my friends, my neighborhood, my community, my town, my county, my state, my country, my nation, my ocean, my sky, my world? How do I do that? Is there a way that I can be functional on all those hierarchies? I do believe that it is possible. Again, I’m another one of these holotropically and holographically minded people and I believe on some level that simultaneously within the context of my humanity and expression of physiology and my DNA that energetically physically, emotionally, and mentally I am connected to the global paradigm of life, I am part of the thin veil or film on the surface of mother earth that we call organic life. On some level, we all serve a function and we’re all interconnected in that way. There is a way to live within the framework of internal and external natural equilibrium’s and sustainability is the key. There is a way to conserve the earth’s vital resources and diversity while promoting our own for our selves, our friends and families, children and children’s children. As the Native Americans say, “we work for the life of seven generations.”

Not being sustainable is counter-intuitive to you own survival

The main reason to be sustainable is that it’s crazy not to be! It’s crazy! If you really understand what’s going on, it would be insane to not be. So, I don’t want to be crazy! It has been part of my path of life to move myself through whatever means was available towards a progression of sanity. I want to be more; I don’t want to be less. Not to be sustainable is counter intuitive to your survival. Thoughts, actions and deeds that are counter intuitive to your survival and those around you are freaking crazy! I don’t want to be crazy and that’s one reason I want to be sustainable.

Planetary die-off cycles of humanity?

Did anyone hear the lecture yesterday on paleo-human life here in the state of Florida? Did you hear the part about periodic human die-off? 12,000 years ago there was proliferation, anthropologically speaking there were millions of humans in our geographic region. Then they just kind of go away and there was a period of time where they weren’t here. Several thousand years later we start to see a continuation but it’s not too good. The technologies aren’t too good and it’s like they lost something. Then they kind of pick it up and they get going again and the arrowheads get a little sharper and a little more precise – and then, they go away for a couple thousand years! Then they come back again.

My understanding is that we are at the precipice of one of those cycles right now and we are arrogant to ignore that these cycles exists.  They have been repeated several times in the last 12,000 or 15,000 years! We will be subject to the consequences if we ignore our external environment and internal environment. Anthropologists say that the disappearance and resurgence of the population is a result of conflict over harvesting of food and inappropriately harvesting of food that led to massive die offs. Spreading of disease without containment strategy also led to massive die-offs. Not understanding the impending doom by noticing the changing planetary conditions led to planetary die off.

Guess what folks? We have all of these things happening right now. The only difference between us and our paleo brothers and sisters is that we have the internet so we have more of a real-time communication network that allows us to address these issues a little bit faster whereas our paleo brothers and sisters were dependent on the “telephone game” to communicate this information. “The sky is falling! The glaciers are coming!” Then a couple of thousand miles away: “I heard something about…there is some guy with snow-cones coming?” “Well I don’t even like snow-cones, so screw that!” They were subject to that problem. We have the possibility of hope because we have a greater ability to communicate. It’s not necessarily technology, but the possibility of simultaneous global communication.
