It was in October of 2012 that a team of doctors at the Markham Stouffville Hospital in Markham, Ontario, Canada explained to me that my body was starting to deteriorate. Thirteen years of severe substance abuse accompanied by the spending of hundreds of thousands of dollars — earned both legally and illegally — and I thought to myself, “Is this how it’s all going to end?”

Over the two week span prior to that diagnosis I had made five appearances in the ER. Twice I thought I was having a heart attack, twice for shortness of breath, and once for a family of unsightly boils growing under my left armpit.

The detrimental diagnosis was the result of a discovery that I had second stage kidney failure, causing my liver to begin shutting down. Externally this portrayed itself through skin rashes and boils growing in my lymph nodes, including several in very sensitive areas of my body. My body had finally had enough, a conclusion that only made sense given the number of times I subjected it to cocaine, meth, ecstasy, MDMA, ketamine, opiates, liquor, and a horrific diet.

I agreed to see a social worker and psychiatrist to try to uncover the root cause of my substance abuse. The sessions were going well until they suggested that I begin taking prescription drugs to help deal with the “disorders” I seem to have developed. The doctor wrote me the prescription for a drug I couldn’t even pronounce, but was similar to the widely known antidepressant prozac in terms of its primary function.

After 8 to 9 weeks of clean sobriety, I decided to reward myself, ringing in the new year by indulging in a number of my old habits. It was 4AM on January 1st, 2013, and as I sat drinking from a bottle of whiskey an incredible force of betrayal and anger shot through me.

For the first time in a very long time, I could actually hear a voice deep within me, a voice of clarity. I decided right then that from this day forward I would cease all drug use — no matter how difficult it got — and do my absolute best to honour my body.

Re-Building My Health

My journey towards health first led me to a free Meetup group, which gathered with the intention of connecting to higher vibrations through guided meditation.

Upon arriving at the gathering I was greeted by a woman named Ange, whose heartfelt introduction caused me to break down in tears and openly sob in front of a room full of strangers.

Through the event and a subsequent phone call the next morning, Ange sent me on a path to detox and revitalize my body. Some of what she suggested included:

  1. Cleansing my pineal gland (FIND OUT MORE)
  2. Writing down positive affirmations and repeating them daily
  3. Not consuming meat products
  4. Increasing my daily intake of fresh organic fruits and vegetables

These changes immediately started to impact my well-being, and it was a week later that I bumped into a longtime friend, who it turns out also recently battled depression. After being on prescribed medication for quite some time, he mentioned that he was finally able to break free from them thanks to one healthy miracle product.

He went into his car and handed me a 100 oz. frozen box of wheatgrass juice proclaiming that it completely changed his life. He insisted I take it from him and simply said that if I decided to not try it out to simply call him and he would come pick it up.

Upon waking up the next morning, I went to the freezer, put 4 cubes in a glass with some distilled water. Once it melted, I took a second to prep myself for the consumption of this off-putting liquid and slammed it back in one shot.

It certainly didn’t taste amazing — especially not the first time — but it was consumable and within 30 minutes I was already feeling the results. I felt as if I was buzzing, even while doing mundane tasks such as checking my e-mail. I realized that this stuff was actually giving me a natural high because of how toxic my body was.

After 3 months of regular wheatgrass juice consumption partnered with other small changes in my diet and lifestyle (10-15 minute daily jog, meditation, cleaner eating, etc.) I was a completely new Justin. My skin began to clear, I was no longer tired throughout the day, and my cravings for substances I was once heavily addicted to had completely subsided.

I cannot guarantee that wheatgrass juice will have the same effect on you, but I certainly think it is more than worth trying out. To find out more or to order your own organic wheatgrass juice, click HERE.

I continue to use wheatgrass every day and am incredibly happy to do so. Thank you Dean Boukaras and thank you wheatgrass gods!

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
