Increased Hope for Alzheimer’s Patients

As the American population ages and the peak of the baby boomer generation move into their 70s, there has been a huge increase in the number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Fortunately, there is a growing body of research into cause, early diagnosis and treatment, that shows great promise.

Recently, the New York Times reported on research indicating that sharp, prolonged changes in mood or behavior may be “A New Harbinger of Alzheimer’s,” possibly predictive of the memory loss and cognitive impairment that we customarily associate with the disease. Since early diagnosis and treatment remain the most effective strategies in limiting progression, any advance warning signs should be taken seriously.

There has even been some indication that Alzheimer’s may be reversible in a small percentage of those diagnosed. In a recent newsletter, Dr. David Perlmutter wrote about a treatment regimen conducted by Dale Bredeson, at the Buck Institute, that includes “reducing blood sugar, increasing physical exercise, lowering homocysteine, optimizing vitamin D and regulating hormones, all of which helped to pave the way for Alzheimer’s patients to regain cognitive function.”

AlzheimersNew drugs are constantly being developed, with varying degrees of success. There is also some indication that the cannabis compounds in marijuana may help to protect those brain cells commonly attacked by the disease. Other research suggests that light therapy may help patients to regain lost memories. There is also some indication that the relaxing and repetitive movements of qigong may reverse some dementia (video). A great resource is Peggy Sarlin’s “Awakening from Alzheimers,” (newly updated for 2016) in which she has compiled research, doctor interviews, natural and holistic treatments and more.  Faced with the certainty that incidences of Alzheimers are going to skyrocket over the next decade as boomers age up, researchers are exploring every possibility.

Stalking the Wild Pendulum, by Itzhak Bentov

Bentov says: “I am attempting in this book to build a model of the universe that will satisfy the need for a comprehensive picture of ‘what our existence is all about.’ In other words, a holistic model that encompasses not only the physical, observable universe that is our immediate environment and the distant universe observed by our astronomers but also other ‘realities’ as well.”

Klaus Heinemann On Orbs & Entities

| by Hazel Courtney

‘If you change your TV channel, you switch to different frequencies, which contain different information. It’s illogical to think that what we cannot see is not real, because the human eye is able to receive only a very narrow part of the light spectrum. Many animals can see in spectrums invisible to us.’.. As Professor Heinemann summarised: ‘Research into orbs is only in its infancy. But the photographs of these spirit emanations offer evidence – as close to scientific proof as we have ever come – in proving the existence of spiritual reality.’

New Thinking Allowed: Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove & Parapsychology

A few years ago, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD. restarted his groundbreaking YouTube show with a new name, “New Thinking Allowed” (video).

How Clean Is Your Biofield? Recognizing and eliminating EMF in your environment

| by Merlian News

There has been a great deal of research in the last several years about the impact of electrical, cellular, microwave and other energies on the human body. Our electromagnetic fields or EMF, also known as our biofield, can be affected or disrupted by the electrical signals or radiation emited by such common devices as cell phones, computers and electrical lines. Detecting unwanted radiation and eliminating it has become a new focus for those concerned with their health.

Plants Use Sound Waves to Communicate With Each Other

| by Merlian News

A study published in BMC Ecology shows that plants can communicate with each other using “nano-mechanical” sound waves. They use these signals to encourage each other to grow, and to keep track of where spatially another plant may need room. The sound vibrations signal the other plant where they are and to grow accordingly.

Research Mapping Emotions Shows Strong Mind-Body Connection

Love makes us warm all over, and now scientists are creating body maps to prove it. A team of scientists in Finland has used a topographical self-reported method to reveal the effects that different emotional states have on bodily sensations. After five experiments and over 700 participants from Finland, Sweden and Taiwan, who reported where on their bodies they felt different emotions , the scientists discovered surprising consistencies. Their research findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

If Plants Are Consciousness, What Happens When We Eat Them?

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Not too long ago The New York Times ran an article, Sedate a Plant, and It Seems to Lose Consciousness. Is It Conscious? The new evidence that plants have a type of “conscious,” joins a host of other research indicating that plants are intelligent, understand where they are in space, respond to threats and obstacles, and communicate with each other. We’ve known for years that plants grow faster and lusher when you play the right music or speak nicely to them, but now there is evidence that plants form memories. Does that mean they remember that you were kind to them? And what does it mean now to eat them? What, if any, are the moral or ethical implications?
