Understanding addiction

Did you know that addiction is classified in the DSM-5? It’s a mental illness that lives in the brain stem: the same brain stem that serves a critical role in regulating certain involuntary actions of the body, including heartbeat and breathing. Addicts feel that they need their drug of choice (DOC) the same way they feel they need to breathe.

Did you know that our society treats addiction as a moral issue and pawns it off on law enforcement to “control”? The average stay in jail being 365 days or less. Where addicts are left to detox alone ?

Did you know the detox process can be violent and result in death if not monitored by medical professionals?

Did you know the addict is many times released, and at that time, their serotonin levels are at their lowest, leading to a high crime rate and a higher chance in relapse. It’s a pun to say that this is criminal but that’s exactly what this really is ….criminal.

It takes an average of 14-16 months of sobriety for an addict’s brain to balance serotonin levels to that of a neuro-typical brain. Did you know that?

Did you know that most insurances will only pay for 30 days of treatment for an addict? Please get mad about that. I’m begging you …get mad about that.

Did you know that 136 people die everyday from opioid overdose? That’s one person every 10.58 minutes. By the time you’re done reading and processing this post, someone will have died from an opioid overdose.
Someone’s child.
Someone’s spouse.
Someone’s parent.
Someone’s brother/sister.
Someone’s friend.
Someone’s aunt/uncle.

Let that sink in.

Did you know that the two biggest factors that “make” an addict are
(1) Genetic Predisposition and (2) Childhood trauma. There’s not that “one hit” or that “one decision” that will make an addict. You never really know who is or is not an addict before they ever even pick up. It’s NOT a moral problem. I repeat, addiction is NOT A MORAL PROBLEM.

Just for a minute let’s take this in a little bit of a different direction. Did you know that the BRCA gene for breast cancer has a 5-10% genetic predisposition rate? People every day undergo testing and life changing surgeries to avoid it but addiction genetic predisposition is over 50%.
O V E R 5 0 %. Let that sink in.
You still think addiction is a moral problem? A parenting problem?
Too bad there isn’t a surgery to remove addiction huh ?

If there’s one thing an addict would say….it’s that they’re still in there. (I know because I’ve asked.) The person that you knew and loved is still in there.

They are not their disease.

THEY ARE NOT THEIR DISEASE.

Addiction is a disease. Much like diabetes. It has to be monitored everyday. For the rest of their lives. And it’s HARD. It takes support and unrelenting diligence. Like cancer in that it can always reoccur.

The blaming needs to stop. We need to do better.
The paradigm needs to change.
Insurance benefits needs to change.
Public awareness needs to change.

Period.

The next time you hear someone say “ they have a choice “ or you hear others refer to addicts as “ a junkie“ start by educating them because that really is how this works.

You can make a difference you can change things. It starts with educating yourself and then spreading that knowledge one person at a time. Please I beg you join me in this.

Copied and pasted. Please do the same…
Be a part of the change! 💜💜

 My resent Scary trip to the ER under Obama Care in Rochester NY was an eye opener. 

Let just say I had a health scare this past weekend and wound up checking myself into the Emergency room at

Strong Memorial Hospital – Rochester, NY  after pain started when I had a hard sneeze.  I finished the night at my Walmart security Job and then went on to my 2nd job working at the Rochester City School district as a school sentry.  I made it through lunch but I was in to much pain to finish the day that’s when I decided to go see the school nurse and see what she thought.  She said that if I was her she would go to the ER thats after she asked me if I was feeling nauseous, up to that point I was in to much pain to think.  That until she asked me that  question right then it hit me that I was nauseous and that was scary I thought I was having appendix pain after talking to the school nurse and as a safety precaution I decided to go to the ER.

The Next 12 hrs were a real eye opener to me and should be to you as well.  So when I first checked myself into the ER it was around 1:30 in the afternoon and they took my info, blood pressure an vitals then told me to wait and that someone would be with me soon and about a 1/2 hr later I was called in to another waiting room inside the ER’s Rapid response hall, were I waited for about 30 minuets till they brought me into the initial examination room that had a table that I sat on and waited for the nurse to take my Vitals again but this time they also took blood as well.  After talking to the nurse and residency medical doctor I was asked if I wanted pain medication I made a mistake and said I think I can wait till I talk to the doctor.  I must have been put on the not so urgent to see list because I sat in that room for about 3 hrs before my dad showed up and stared to make things happen by asking questions of why its taking so long to see a doctor.

After my dad showed up I was put outside of the Rapid response hallway to wait for a room with other ER patience that took about another 2 hrs sitting in a hallway to wait for a room.  Finally they called my name a thought of relief  came over me.  They took me to a examination room with 6 other people two people per examination area.  I thought that this was just another waiting room because it did not have hospital beds just  hard plastic chairs for patients to sit in to wait to be examined by the doctors.

As we were waiting to see my doctor the girl that was sitting next to me on her hard plastic chair had her ER doctor came in and proceed to do an examination on this young woman who had to be in her teen to early 20 somethings with out asking us to leave the area.  I was still in pain but I decided out of respect for this young woman that I would give her privacy as that’s what Id want for myself or my child.  I couldn’t believe that the doctors were going to examine this stranger in front of myself and my dad.  All I can say is “Am I in the twilight zone” is this really happening in America. Yes it is an you can thank Obama Care.

exam

This photo above is what you would expect to be placed in when you have a trip to the ER before Obama Care.

Obama Cares plasic chair in the exam room

This is what you can expect to see in your initial Examination, other people in the ER room with you and a plastic chair.  You can  for get your rights to privacy and comfort if you voted for Obama.

 

I have to be thankful that my dad was with me because he spoke up on my behalf and when the doctors came in to examine me for the first time my dad said to the doctors this is ridiculous to be examined in front of other patience s that we didn’t know.  He asked about my rights to privacy and about the HIPPA Laws.  As soon as my dad asked about the Laws then the doctors quickly left the room and  sent in my nurse again, she said that they would get me a room with an examination table and that the residency medical doctor had miss diagnosed me and sent me to the wrong room.

I have to say that this trip to the ER was much different than the 13 other times that I had gone to the ER years ago when I would dislocate my shoulder but that was before this new generation of obamacare.  To me it seems that we have taken a step back and have manifested into a 3rd world class of medical care.  Years ago you would go to the ER and get first class service yes you would wait just like anyone else but you would get a room asap you wouldn’t get stuck sitting in hard plastic chairs for 6 plus hours sick and in pain.  Just to get an examination in front of complete strangers, my dad was correct that is ridiculous and unacceptable.   We as the American people should demand better and stop voting for the Communist Socialist Party’s like the Democrats and Republicans that keep moving us closer to a Communist Governmental System or you to can expect to lose your rights and privacy like they tried with me in that examination room.

I have to say all the people at the hospital working were kind and professional to the highest degree expect when it came to the initial examination that they tried to do in front of other strangers.   I know how hard these people work because I spent ten years in the Medical field myself  and understand the great pressure they are under to preform at such high standards.  The problems that I see are coming from the State and the insurance company’s that cover medical treatments.  I’m just thankful that my visit to the ER turned out to be just a infection and inflammation that can be treated with antibiotics.  So after about 12 hrs I was released to go home and given the weekend off of work and I spent that time recovering and with my baby Girl Ella.

McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets made with Anti-foaming silicone agent found in Plastic

This Blog discusses a food additive polydimethylsiloxane also known as Dimethylpolysiloxane.   All I can say is when I try to tell people about McDonalds Chicken McNuggets being made with Plastic they look at me like I have three heads and I face all sorts of attacks and condemnations.   I always like to say that “Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.” – Albert Einstein.

Its a fact that McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets contain 

Dimethylpolysiloxane  as an antifoaming agent and the chemical is a form of silicone also used in cosmetics, breast implants, space shuttle re entry tiles and Silly Putty

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Søren Kierkegaard

I’ve tried to tell my family as well as my childs mother that Id do not want our daughter eating this crap but like most American Zombies they will fight to protect that which they shouldn’t, they try to  protect the things that which they don’t want understand out of willful ignorance.    “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”  I hope that at least one of them takes the blinders off and see the damage they are doing to my child every time they are willfully ignorant and allow my child to eat this garbage.  We also know that it so thoroughly destroys the kidneys of laboratory animals that they become prone to having heart attacks.   The only known biological use for silica is as a filtration agent. In fact, it is used to filter food and aid digestion in birds for that reason. You can even make your beer more pure with it!

“Studies in mice suggest that horsetail

may change the activity of the kidneys, causing abnormal control of the amount of water and potassium release. Low potassium, which in theory may occur with horsetail, can have negative effects on the heart.”

— National Institutes of Health

“But you can’t make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up around them. It can’t last.”― Ray BradburyFahrenheit 451   I just hope that its not to late and my child Ella listens to me when she is of age to understand and in time stops eating this  “McFrankenstein” creation.[7]  poison. ― Plato “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.” ― Benjamin Franklin  

 Also  never mind just the fast food places.  Like McDonalds is using Dimethylpolysiloxane as an added as an antifoaming agent.[4]  this in their processed food all processed foods contain this kinda Chemical poison but don’t worry the world health organization is on it and says this chemikill poses no adverse health effects.

Silica is a compound that is found in soils, like minerals. There are people who have made the asinine assumption that it must be beneficial to health based on this. Another basis for the assumption about silica’s benefits is the fact that trace amounts of it are found inside fruits and vegetables, which could produce some minor contributions to good health, but mostly to the health of those fruits and vegetables. Supplementing with silica has not been shown to provide any health benefits to humans, and all silica supplements contain far more silica than anyone could consume naturally through a healthy diet.

Silica dust is a known carcinogen, lung irritant, and a central nervous system toxin. Although, it has been shown to be relatively neutralized when filtered through the human digestive system. This somewhat makes the point about how stupid silica supplementation really is. Since it is destroyed by the human digestive system, injections would be the only way to actually supplement with it.http://healthwyze.org/index.php/component/content/article/231-silica-supplements-just-another-fraud.html

Food sources
Dietary sources of bioavailable silicon include whole grains, cereals, beer, and some vegetables such as green beans. Silicon in the form of silica, or silicon dioxide (SiO2), is a common food additive but has limited intestinal absorption.

Absorption from food and supplements
The comparative absorption of silicon from different foods and food supplements.
Br J Nutr. 2009. Gastrointestinal Laboratory, The Rayne Institute (King’s College London), St Thomas’ Hospital, London SE1 7EH, UK.
Dietary Silicon (orthosilicic acid) appears important in connective tissue health, and although the sources and intakes of Si are well established, its absorption is not. Silicon absorption was measured from eight high-Si-containing sources: alcohol-free beer; OSA solution (positive control); bananas; green beans; supplemental choline-stabilised OSA (ChOSA); supplemental colloidal silica (CS); magnesium trisilicate British Pharmacopoeia antacid (MTBP). Absorption, based on urinary Silicon excretion, was highest for MMST (the first French patent for the use of organic silicon) and alcohol-free beer (64% of dose), followed by green beans (44%), OSA (43%), ChOSA (17%), bananas and CS (1%). Peak serum concentrations occurred by 0.5 h for MMST and green beans, 1.5 h for OSA and alcohol-free beer, 2 h for ChOSA and CS. Absorption of Si from supplements and antacids was consistent with their known chemical speciation and kinetics of dissolution under simulated gastrointestinal conditions. Monomeric silicates were readily absorbed, while particulate silicates were decreasingly well absorbed with increasing polymerisation. The present results highlight the need to allow for relative absorption of Si from different foods or supplements in subsequent epidemiological and intervention studies. http://www.raysahelian.com/silicon.html

In a 2002 lawsuit against McDonald’s, Judge Robert Sweet commented that Chicken McNuggets are a “McFrankenstein” creation.[7]The judge identified that rather than being merely chicken fried in a pan, McNuggets included elements not utilized by the home cook, including the unusual sounding ingredients like: extracts of rosemary, vitamins (niacin, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), leavening (baking soda, calcium lactate, etc.).[8]

The 2004 documentary Super Size Me states that “[o]riginally created from old chickens that can no longer lay eggs, McNuggets are now made from chickens with unusually large breasts. They’re stripped from the bone, and ground-up into a sort of ‘chicken mash’, which is then combined with all sorts of stabilizers and preservatives, pressed into familiar shapes, breaded, deep-fried, freeze-dried, and then shipped to a McDonald’s near you”. Super Size Me also alleged inclusion of chemicals such as tertiary butylhydroquinone (a phenolic antioxidant used as a chemical preservative),polydimethylsiloxane (an anti-foaming agent), and other ingredients not used by a typical home cook.[9] This was recently restated by CNN.[10] Marion Nestle, a New York University professor and author of What to Eat, says the tertiary butylhydroquinone and dimethylpolysiloxane in McNuggets probably pose no health risks. As a general rule, though, she advocates not eating any food with an ingredient you can’t pronounce.[10]

As of October 9, 2010, dimethylpolysiloxane and Tert-Butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) are listed as ingredients in the McNuggets cooking process.[4] According to Lisa McComb, a media relations representative for McDonald’s, dimethylpolysiloxane is used as a matter of safety to keep the frying oil from foaming. The chemical is a form of silicone also used in cosmetics and Silly Putty. A review of animal studies by the World Health Organization found no adverse health effects associated with dimethylpolysiloxane. TBHQ is a common preservative for vegetable oils, cereals, nuts, cookies, chips, and animal fats,[11] found in other foods like Girl Scout Cookies[12] and Quaker Chewy Granola Bars.[13] The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sets an upper limit of 0.02% (0.0002) of the oil or fat content in foods,[14] which like other foods, applies to the oil used in McNuggets. Effective use of TBHQ is 1 gram per 5000 grams of cooking oil (1 gram per 11 pounds of cooking oil).

As of October 9, 2010, the ingredients within the United States are as follows: Chicken,watersaltsodium phosphates. Battered and breaded with bleached wheat flour, water, wheat flour, modified food starch, salt, spiceswheat glutenpaprikadextrose (sugar),yeastgarlic powderrosemarypartially hydrogenated soybean oil and cottonseed oil with mono- and diglyceridesleavening (sodium acid pyrophosphatebaking sodaammonium bicarbonatemonocalcium phosphate), natural flavor (plant source) with extractives of paprika. Fried in vegetable oil (Canola oilcorn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid).Dimethylpolysiloxane is added as an antifoaming agent.[4] McDonald’s ingredients can vary outside of the US.

New Study Shows, Smoking Marijuana Causes ‘Complete Remission’ of Crohn’s Disease, No Side Effects

  1. I know a few people who have this but bet they will still not listen to alternative News or idea’s and remain sick or die in pain. Iv seen this happen before why are people so brainwashed by the system that lies all the time? Wake up people and be free from death and pain.

    Smoking Marijuana Causes ‘Complete Remission’ of Crohn’s Disease, No Side Effects, New Study Shows

    Posted on May 14, 2013 at 9:38 am by David Downs in featured, Health

    Marijuana – scientific name “cannabis” – performed like a champ in the first-ever placebo-controlled trial of the drug to treat Crohn’s Disease, also known as inflammatory bowel disease.

    The disease of the digestive tract afflicts 400,000 – 600,000 people in North America alone causing abdominal pain, diarrhea (which can be bloody), severe vomiting, weight loss, as well as secondary skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration.

    Smoking pot caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s disease compared to placebo in half the patients who lit up for eight weeks, according to clinical trial data to be published the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

    Researchers at Israel’s Meir Medical Center took 21 people with intractable, severe Crohn’s disease and gave 11 of them two joints a day for eight weeks. “The standardized cannabis cigarettes” contained 23 percent THC and 0.5 percent CBD (cannabidiol). (Such marijuana is available on dispensary shelves in San Francisco, Oakland, and other cities that have regulated access to the drug.) The other ten subjects smoked placebo cigarettes containing no active cannabinoids.

    Investigators reported that smoking weed caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s Disease in five of the 11 subjects. Another five of the eleven test subjects saw their Crohn’s Disease symptoms cut in half. Furthermore, “subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects.”

    The study is the first placebo-controlled clinical trial to assess the consumption of cannabis for the treatment of Crohn’s, notes NORML. All of the patients had intractable forms of the disease and did not respond to conventional treatments. Still, the United States government claims that marijuana is as dangerous as heroin and has no medical use. U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag is waging a war on safe access to medical cannabis in the Bay Area.

 

FDA and Monsanto are going to go Crazy after Kosher Certification Bans All GMO Ingredients.

Kosher Certification Bans All GMO Ingredients NEW HOT

Kosher Certification Bans All GMO Ingredients

One group after another is denouncing the genetically modified poison on grocery store shelves, adding to the chorus of voices demanding real untainted food.

Natural Food Certifiers has announced today that any food product that contains GMOs is no longer eligible to be certified as kosher under their “Apple K” kosher certification program.

A press release stated:

NFC was very proud to introduce the first “Natural Only” kosher supervision,” said NFC Director Rabbi Reuven Flamer. “It’s a logical application of our principle, ‘Start Naturally. Stay that Way.’ Therefore, the Natural Apple K cannot be placed on a product that contains GMOs,” Flamer explained.

“While according to the strict letter of Kosher food law a GMO food ingredient is not prohibited, in our view it is not natural.  Additionally, there is a Torah (religious)-based law to ‘guard your health’. GMOs are the number-one growing concern among health-conscious consumers and for businesses in the natural and organic food market, as well as in the conventional food industry,” said Rabbi Flamer.

“Recent studies show that GMOs may cause various kinds of health problems from digestive disturbances to food allergies, and that GMOs require more herbicides, which is really the opposite reason why GMOs were touted to be so environmentally helpful in the first place,” Rabbi Flamer added. “For all of the many reasons that GMOs raise a red flag, consumers simply don’t want them in their foods, and our clients want to accommodate their customers.”

Over the next 12 months, the company will phase out the certification of any product that contains GMO ingredients, and will no longer accept applications for certification of products that contain GMOs.

Apple K Kosher

NFC has numerous natural food certification programs, including USDA Organic certification, Kosher certification (under the “Apple K” label), Vegan certification, and Gluten Guard, a gluten-free assurance program.

Each product submitted by a manufacturer for approval is carefully analyzed. The press release explains the process for all of the certification categories.  ”The process may include, but is not limited to, a request and review of the ingredient deck including country of origin andcertificate of analysis, product testing, as well as inspection of manufacturing facilities.”

Whether or not your faith requires you to follow the Kosher food laws, this news should be celebrated by anyone who hopes to see the demise of Monsanto and the products created by their mad scientists.  While countries across the world are banning GMOs, the wheels are moving slowly in North America to even have GMOs labeled so that consumers can make an informed decision.  To have a large demographic refuse to allow genetically modified material in their food is yet another volley against the corruption that is evident in the unholy alliance of the FDA and Monsanto.
