 A few years ago, if you would have told me hypnotherapy works better for anxiety than any medication -and that it doesn’t just maintain it, it cures it-, I would have ignorantly replied with a snarky comment right before dismissing the thought entirely. However, if you told me that today, I would enthusiastically agree. I know, because I have experienced it; and it is because I have experienced it that I am able to sit here peacefully and write this without racing thoughts clouding my mind.

For 21 years of my life, “shy” was the last word people would have used to describe me. Unfortunately, this all changed when anxiety began to consume me. At the beginning of my long battle with Lyme disease, I was placed on a grotesque amount of psychotropic drugs.  After experiencing the harmful side effects of pharmaceuticals, both mentally and socially, I chose to treat myself naturally and began the long journey of withdrawing from one prescription pill after another. My destiny was to return to the version of myself that was not chemically altered by drugs. Unfortunately, this road also lead me down further, often times more drastic, changes physically, mentally and spiritually. It made me incredibly sick. I managed to endure my withdrawals on top of Lyme unnameddisease by constantly reminding myself that it was only temporary, until anxiety began to viciously ravage my every thought when I began weaning myself off a benzodiazepine called Ativan. I had experienced anxiety before, and had even had a few severely irrational anxiety attacks where I thought I was dying. This was different, though. It took the term “anxiety” to a whole new level, and re-defined my entire perspective of life. Imagine having an intense anxiety attack 24/7, that’s how I permanently lived. It prevented me from doing things as minor as walking into the gas station alone. The little social life I had continued to diminish until it became virtually obsolete, as the severity of my anxiety was magnified when I was placed in social situations.

Clearly, I was not okay living in such a way. Due to withdrawals, I became a full time host for anxiety. I was desperate to put an end to it, but not desperate enough to give in and start taking the pills again. However, the disheartening fact was that benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome, which mostly plagues long-term benzodiazepines users, commonly lasts well over a year. It prolongs and intensifies withdrawal symptoms, and can even happen to individuals who have taken benzodiazepines for as little as two months. My most debilitating symptom was crushing, unrelenting anxiety. Considering I had taken a tranquilizing dose of Ativan for over two years, the anxiety was likely to stick around for the long haul –was, until hypnotherapy relieved me of anxiety entirely.

How Hypnotherapy Works

Addressing anxiety at its deepest level through hypnotherapy can entirely eradicate your anxiety and provide you with permanent behavioral and lifestyle changes, rather than changes that are only apparent when you pop a pill.  Hypnotherapy works by quieting the conscious mind in order to completely access and reprogram the subconscious mind. Chronic anxiety typically stems from deep-rooted memories and beliefs about yourself that are stored in your subconscious mind, which serves as the hard drive for your conscious mind. Using your conscious mind, you can acknowledge your anxiety and try to control it. You might successfully defeat your anxiety this way, but not for long. Significant change must occur deep within the subconscious mind in order to achieve lasting results, since it is ultimately what fuels your conscious mind. Hypnotherapy opens the door to your subconscious mind by putting you in a trance-like state, enabling the hypnotherapist to replace any deep-seated negative thoughts or memories you harbor with more positive and productive ones. Hypnotherapists treat anxiety by doing this in one, or both, of the following ways:

  1. When you are in a trance, your subconscious mind is pulled forth from the background of your mind and placed in the foreground, allowing the hypnotherapist to speak to it. By repeatedly feeding your subconscious with affirmations negating your anxious thoughts, you can cancel them out and replace them with new ideas promoting an anxiety free lifestyle. Storing new, positive suggestions in the hard drive of your brain allows for lasting results that can effortlessly be accessed and utilized once you are conscious again. While pills may keep your anxiety at bay, it is likely that they are merely masking it rather than treating it. A major problem with this is that long-term consequences accompany the short-term benefits of taking medication, as chemical deposits from the substance are secreted into your cells each time you take it.
  2. Hypnotherapy can also treat anxiety using a method called “visualization,” which is also performed while you are in a trance-like state. If your anxiety stems from a specific event or situation, the hypnotherapist may have you access the initial memory that instigated your chronic anxiety or anxiety attacks, and then have you replace it with a new image that does not provoke anxiety. For example, my hypnotherapist had me visualize myself swinging on a long rope back to the very first moment I experienced my debilitating anxiety, even though I did not believe one specific moment had provoked my anxiety and that is was solely a symptom of benzodiazepine withdrawals. Surprisingly, a particular time in my life did in fact surface. Once there, I visualized the situation as if I were observing it from the outside looking in, and then imagined myself pointing a laser of golden light at it. I imagined the laser gradually shrinking the image until it was entirely gone, in order to imprint the feeling of reclaiming my power back from anxiety into my subconscious mind, thus allowing me to live as if I truly had in my waking life as well. Lastly, while still in the trance state, positive images of a life opposite from that of chronic anxiety, such as ones filled with joy and spontaneity, were introduced and stored in my subconscious mind.

Essentially, hypnotherapy has the potential to successfully change the negative core beliefs spawning your undesirable habitual surface thoughts, feelings and behaviors. If you prefer not to visit a hypnotherapist for anxiety, you may choose to learn self-hypnosis instead. A link to instructions on doing so is posted below. There are plenty of great hypnotherapy videos for anxiety, as well as a plethora of other problems, available on YouTube. Any form of hypnosis may prove to be beneficial in one way or another. Like most things in life, it is all a matter of trial and error to find which method works best for you. Also, keep in mind it takes some people several sessions before they are able to drop into trance and experience the full benefits of hypnotherapy. As a person who meditates frequently, I was able to drop into trance during my first hypnosis session and reaped profound benefits almost immediately. That being said, meditation is an excellent practice for quieting your mind, which will help you immensely when trying to drop into a trance. Not to mention, 20 minutes of meditation a day will help you remain calm and keep residual anxiety under control and/or prevent a re-emergence of past anxiety.

The Damaging Effects Of 5G WiFi On Your Health

Published

on

Wireless radiation is a huge health problem that continues to be ignored and another opportunity for us to gaze into the past of similar occurrences and learn from our mistakes. Take tobacco for example, at one time in history you were considered a fool and ‘crazy’ for speaking up against the big tobacco companies and letting people know that cigarettes compromise our health. Today, science has spoken, and it has spoken for a long time, despite what the corporations put out into the public and the “science” they used to approve these things in the first place.

There doesn’t seem to be much more of a difference between communication companies that sell and manufacture wireless products and services, which, according to hundreds of scientists and countless amounts of publications, are urging authorities to pay closer attention to what wireless radiation is doing to human health.

This is one of the multiple examples where corporate control rules and dictates government policy, policies that favour big corporations at the behest of planet Earth and the rest of the human population. But it’s more so apparent in North America.

European Restrictions

In Europe, multiple countries have restrictions on WiFi and have pointed out some disturbing things. France passed a law in 2015 banning WiFi from all nursery schools, the law states that WiFi must be turned off in all elementary schools when it’s not in use. W wired connection if possible, is preferred. Advertisements directing cell phone use towards young children are banned.

An example from Namibia states quite clearly that current so-called “safety” standards don’t protect citizens from long-term health effects, and that the guidelines governing their use do not guarantee adequate protection against the effects of long-term exposure.

Other countries include Belgium, Spain, Israel, Australia, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, India, Finland, Cyprus and more.

Why Multiple Countries Have Banned Wifi & Cell Phones Around Schools, Young Children & Fetuses


Yes, we are making progress, and awareness is being created and steps are being taken, but the corporate take over of North America and almost the entire planet is simply brushing our health under the table, because, unfortunately, they have the power to do so.

At the same time, we are the ones using this technology. It’s becoming so useful, and so easy to just rely on the corporation like we do with everything else. How ironic is it that we raise money and advocate for cancer, yet support the very things that are contributing to it, on grande scales?

Millions of children and adults in schools around the world spend significant amounts of time around wireless devices and Wi-Fi. Many schools are introducing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and installing industrial wireless routers for tablets. However, wireless devices expose students and staff to microwave radiation that can impede learning and overall health. Studies have shown that microwave radiation can damage reproductive systems, impact the immune system, alter brain functioning, and may increase cancer risk. Tablets have up to 5 antennae that are constantly emitting short intense bursts of radiation even when not connected to the Internet. Wireless devices in classrooms thus result in multiple sources of wireless radiation exposure. – Environmental Health Trust

The 5G Health Concerns

So, what about 5G? Science already indicates that the current wireless technologies of 2G, 3G and 4G – in use today with our cell phones, computers, and wearable tech. – creates radio frequency exposure which poses a serious health risk to humans, animals and the environment. 5G is the term used to describe the next-generation of mobile networks beyond the 4G LTE mobile networks used today. 5G is intended to be the technology that allows the “Internet of Things” (IOT) to exist and connects all internet connected devices together.

Scientists have been studying the health effects of 5G and wireless radiation and are deeply concerned with their findings and are calling for a stop to the rollout of 5G,  as well as a halt to the proposed increase in radio frequency radiation exposure to the public.

Thanks to all of the efforts by various researchers, scientists and more, the world is waking up to this information and it’s actually starting to become talked about within the mainstream. It always seems like such a long process from the point where something is known, to actually mass consensus and action steps being created.

A CBS news report recently emphasized:

The wireless industry is in a race to roll out 5G service. The network is supposed to be up to 100 times faster than current data speeds, but it requires cellphone tower equipment to be closer to users than before. Wireless companies in the U.S. say they’ll have to install about 300,000 new antennas – roughly equal to the total number of cell towers built over the past three decades. That’s causing outrage and alarm in some neighbourhoods, as antennas go up around homes.

5G requires the installation of new equipment across the U.S. Every wireless company is working to build its own 5G network. This is worse than cell phone use, and yet, according to government health authorities, “a limited number of studies have shown some evidence of statistical association of cell phone use and brain tumour risks… but most studies have found no association.”

Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.
Dr. Martin Blank, Ph.D., from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Columbia University, has joined a group of scientists from around the world who are making an international appeal to the United Nations regarding the dangers associated with the use of electromagnetic emitting devices like cell phones and Wi-Fi. He and hundreds of other scientists around the world are currently petitioning the UN, and have been for quite some time, regarding the dangers associated with these devices.

“Putting it bluntly they are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely” (source)

Melissa Arnoldi, who leads AT&T’s efforts, said “if it’s not already in your neighbourhood, it’s coming.” This is quite concerning, she told CBS news that “5G uses high-frequency waves that support faster speeds but don’t travel as far as current wireless frequencies. So instead of relying on large cellphone towers spread far apart, they need “small cell” sites that are much closer together.”

Sometimes I wonder, how is this even allowed to happen? Who are the people which control what type of information with regards to our health gets emphasized, and what doesn’t?

This new 5G equipment is currently being installed in a neighbourhood near you.

I’ll leave you with this TED talk by a Silicon-valley engineer turned technology health advocate, Jeromy Johnson.

This Super Simple Breathing Technique Can Help Alleviate Anxiety & Depression

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Small study finds breathing technique can help treat major depressive disorder and anxiety.

  • Reflect On:

    The answers to our challenges are much simpler than we thought, we have everything we need inside of us. Great alternative to prescription anti-depressant medication, or other substances.

The breath is one of the most underrated and under-utilized methods of healing. Breathing comes naturally to us, we do it without thinking, which is why it is not something we generally think of as a way to connect deeply with ourselves, calm our anxieties or even reach higher levels of consciousness. Something as simple as breathing can help those who suffer from severe mental conditions and those who have survived global disasters.

There are many forms of breathwork, there is the well-known Holotropic Breathing, made popular by the Iceman himself, Wim Hof. There is another technique known as transformational breathwork and the featured practice of breathing that will be featured in this article, resonant breathing or Coherent Breathing, which is a trademarked term.

This specific style of breathwork came from years of studying the ancient breathing practices of indigenous people all over the world including those from African, Hawaiian, and Native American traditions.

Assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at New York Medical College, Patricia Gerbarg, studies the technique with her husband, Richard Brown, associate professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. “We wanted to identify a short program that could be given quickly to people, that they would have immediate relief within five or ten minutes, and that over time would produce long-term changes,” Gerbarg told Vice.

The Study

A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary medicine in 2017 led by researchers from Boston University asked 30 people with major depression to practice the breathing technique regularly as well as Iyengar yoga. After 3 months, results from a standard depression inventory test showed how the depressive symptoms had significantly declined.

Even though the study size was very small, it is comforting to know that something as simple as breath alone could help to alleviate symptoms of severe depression. No pills needed. This technique is especially powerful because it can be practiced anytime, anywhere. The process involved taking regular breaths in and out of the nose, at a pace of 5 breaths per minute, each breath in and out taking around 6 seconds. When starting out, it is recommended that this be practiced with the eyes closed, but once you get it under control you can easily do it with your eyes open, meaning while you’re driving, while in a meeting, anytime during the day that you may find yourself feeling anxious, stressed or down. Gerbarg says, “It’s totally private. Nobody knows you’re doing it.”

The breath should be calm and gentle because the goal is to balance the sympathetic — fight or flight with the parasympathetic — rest and digest areas of the nervous system. Interestingly, when the couple first began looking into the power of the breath, the first thought was that this must send extra oxygen to the brain that we may have otherwise been lacking. However, they knew that there must be more to this to explain the profound effects they had been seeing in those who practiced the breathing technique. Not to mention, some types of breathwork actually decreases the amount of oxygen going to the brain.

Why Does This Work?

Gerbarg and Brown believe that the reason this technique works is thanks to the vagal nerves, those connecting the brain to the body and what tell the organs when to beat, digest, breathe and all other functions, have been found in recent years to send even more messages in the opposite direction from the body to the brain. “These ascending messages strongly influence stress response, emotion and neurohormonal regulatory networks,” stated in a book written by the couple, Yoga Therapy: Theory and Practice.

According to Gerbarg, “Respiration is the only autonomic function we can voluntarily control,” it’s easy to see how changing the breathing pattern can shift the messages received by the brain.

The calm and even breaths send messages of safety, according to Gerbarg, this can reduce anxious or depressive thoughts and makes way for more loving and connected emotions to be felt. Adverse reactions are generally rare, but those with asthma or other breathing conditions should only try this practice under the guidance of a trained professional.

We really do have everything we need inside of us. Our human bodies are magnificent, and if something as simple as breathing can help alleviate symptoms of depression, then we should certainly be studying this more. If you are skeptical about this information and feel it’s too good to be true, give it a shot next time you find yourself feeling down or anxious and see if it helps!

Much Love

It’s Not New: Pictures Show The Fight Against Vaccines Is Well Over 100 Years Old

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The struggle against vaccination, especially compulsory vaccination mandated by a government/industry coalition, was met with fierce resistance from people during the early history of vaccination over a century ago.

  • Reflect On:

    What does the pictorial evidence of opposition to vaccines from early in the previous century tell us about today's vaccine industry?

In the foreword to the book by Doctor Suzanne Humphries and Roman Bistrianyk entitled ‘Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History,’ Dr. Jayne L. M. Donegan sums up the vaccine ‘landscape’ that she and all MDs enter into as they become doctors:

Despite questioning the safety and efficacity of vaccination by reputable medical men since its introduction, debate has been, and is, increasingly discouraged. Information published in scientific journals is used to support this position, other views being regarded as “unscientific.”

It was a received “article of faith” for me and my contemporaries, that vaccination was the single most useful health intervention that had ever been introduced. Along with all my medical and nursing colleagues, I was taught that vaccines were the reason children and adults stopped dying from diseases for which there are vaccines. We were told that other diseases, such as scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, typhus, typhoid, cholera, and so on, for which there are no vaccines at the time, diminished both in incidence and mortality (ability to kill) due to better social conditions.

You would think–as medical students who are supposed to be moderately intelligent–that some of us would have asked, “But if deaths from these diseases decreased due to improved social conditions, mightn’t the ones for which there are vaccines also have decreased at the same time for the same reason?” But we didn’t.

The medical curriculum is so overloaded with information that you just have to learn what you hear, as you hear it: nonvaccinatable diseases into the social conditions box and vaccinatable diseases into the vaccines box and then onto the next subject.

What this book especially brought to light for me was not just that open ‘debate’ on vaccination is systematically stifled, but the gruesome early history of vaccination itself is hidden, suppressed, and denied. For me, just knowing the early history of vaccination has been enough for me to see that all along this phenomena has fundamentally been about power and money, in complete and abject disregard for human health. I believe an open-minded reading of the book mentioned above will lead you to the same conclusions.

Early Resistance Against Vaccines

The early history of vaccines is fraught with egregious trial-and-error ‘science’ on humans treated as guinea pigs matched with strong-arm tactics at compulsory vaccination. But even though they were dealing with human populations that were not as educated as we may be today, the illness and deaths of children resulting from vaccination were not lost on parents–and in some cases, before the medical establishment had full control over their doctors’ muzzles, were admitted to by doctors. Here are a few among many pictorial examples and their heart-breaking stories:

Public Gatherings

At a time when mainstream media, government, and the medical establishment were not the well-oiled machine of elite propaganda they are today, public outrage and attempts to mobilize against compulsory vaccination were squarely in the public eye:

Anti-Vaccine Literature And Images

Like today, there were professionals and researchers speaking out against the dangers of vaccination, and probably suffered from the same lack of funding to proliferate their message.

Comparisons With Today

One would imagine that if the early vaccine industry actually cared about public health, that even the death or crippling of ONE CHILD that occurred directly after vaccination would cause them to shut down operations until they could verify that this death was not caused by vaccines. Alas, these pictures demonstrate otherwise. And if it did not happen then, it certainly is not happening now.

The outright lie found on government medical websites that ‘vaccines are safe and effective’ belies the fact that a special fund and a special court was set up by the government to issue compensation to sufferers of vaccine injury that has already paid out over $3.7 billion dollars. The fact is that this court was set up to prevent people from being able to sue vaccine companies directly, because it was forecast that all the vaccine manufacturers would go bankrupt if they were not protected from being sued. That’s how ‘safe and effective’ vaccines have proven to be.

Sure, today there is less of a push towards compulsory vaccination–but that is in part due to the awesome and tireless work of enraged citizens at the turn of the century as evidenced in these pictures! All that happened was that the vaccine industry realized that they could better ply their trade by focusing not on forced vaccination and the obvious resistance it generates, but rather by controlling the narrative with well-funded propaganda through coordinated efforts of the medical establishment, government, and the media. Part of this effort is hiding the history from us that we see in the pictures featured here.

If we are to become clear as a collective about the big picture of what is going on behind government and industry policy today, sometimes a brief look at history is all it takes.
