what to do if forced to vaccinate

Russell Blaylock, MD – What To
Do If Force Vaccinated

By Dr. Russell Blaylock

Dr Blaylock’s List of suggestions on How to Reduce the Toxic Effects of the A/H1N1 Vaccine, is as follows:
1. Number one on the list says Dr Blaylock, is to bring a cold pack with you and place it on the site of the injection as soon as you can, as this will block the immune reaction. Once you get home, continue using a cold pack throughout the day. If you continue to have immune reactions the following day, have cold showers and continue with the cold press.
2. Take fish oil. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), one of the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements, is a potent immune suppressant. If you take high dose EPA you will be more susceptible to infections, because it is a powerful immune suppressant. However, in the case of an immune adjuvant reaction, you want to reduce it. Studies show that if you take EPA oil one hour before injecting a very powerful adjuvant called lipopolysaccharide (LPS), it would completely block the ability of the LPS to cause brain inflammation. Take a moderate dose everyday and more if needed to tame a cytokine storm.
3. <>Flavonoids are third on the list, namely curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid, particularly in a mixture. The curcumin and quercetin in particular have been found to block the ability of the adjuvants to trigger a long-term immune reaction. If you take it an hour before the vaccination, it should help dampen the immune reactions says Dr Blaylock.
4. Vitamin E, the natural form that is high in gamma-E will help dampen the immune reactions and reduces several of the inflammatory cytokines.
5. An important ingredient on the list is Vitamin C at a dose of 1000 mg, taken four times a day between meals. It is a very potent anti-inflammatory and should be taken in a buffered form, not as absorbic acid, says Dr Blaylock.
6. <; Also use astaxanthin as it’s an anti-inflammatory. According to Dr Blaylock, fatal reactions to vaccines in aboriginal and African children occurred in those who were deficient in carotinoids, like astaxanthin. It is a good protection against the toxic effects of the vaccine.
7. Likewise, it was found that children who were deficient in zinc had a high mortality rate. Zinc is very protective against vaccine toxicity. (Do not use zinc mixed with copper however, as copper is a major trigger of free-radical generation according to Dr Blaylock).
8. Ensure you avoid all immune-stimulating supplements, such as mushroom extracts, whey protein and <>beta-glucan.
9. Take a multivitamin-mineral daily ­ one that does not contain iron. This multivitamin-mineral is to make sure your body has plenty of B vitamins and selenium. Selenium, said Dr Blaylock, is very important for fighting viral infections and it reduces the inflammatory response to vaccines.
10. Magnesium citrate/malate 500 mg of elemental magnesium two capsules, three times a day. (This was not mentioned during the show, but was posted at Dr Deagle’s website, <>
11. What is very important is vitamin D3, which is the only ‘vitamin’ the body can manufacture from sunlight (UVB). It is a neural hormone, not really a vitamin says Dr Blaylock and helps if you are over-reacting immunologically by cooling down the reaction. Similarly, if you are under-reacting, it helps to boost your immune response. In addition it also protects against microorganism invasion.
Black people and those in colder climates are particularly deficient, so they will almost certainly require supplementation.
Dr Blaylock recommends that following vaccination it will help to keep the immune reaction under control if:
i) All children get 5,000 units a day for two weeks after the vaccine and then 2,000 a units a day thereafter;
ii) Adults get 20,000 units a day after the vaccine for two weeks, then 10,000 units a day thereafter;
iii) And with that adults should take 500-1000 mg of calcium a day and children under the age of 12 years should take 250 mg a day, as vitamin D works more efficiently in the presence of calcium.
12. Ensure you avoid all mercury-containing seafood or any other sources of mercury, as the heavy metal is a very powerful inducer of autoimmunity, is known to make people more susceptible to viral infections and will be in H1N1 vaccines.
13. Avoid the oils that significantly suppress immunity and increase inflammation – such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oils.
14. Drink very concentrated white tea at least four times a day. It helps to prevent abnormal immune reactions.
15. Pop parsley and celery in a blender and drink 8 ounces of this mixture twice a day. Dr Blaylock says the parsley is very high in a flavonoid called apigenin and that celery is high in <>luteolin. Both are very potent in inhibiting autoimmune diseases, particularly the apigenin, so go and plant some parsley in your garden now.

Bombshell: CDC destroyed vaccine documents, Congressman reveals


There are lawsuits to be filed. Eleven years have passed since the CDC committed its crime of concealing the MMR vaccine-autism connection. How many parents, never informed of the truth, have permitted their children to receive this vaccine? How many children have been struck down by the vaccine?

The lawsuits should be filed against the CDC and the individual authors of the 2004 study. Lawyers must depose every CDC employee who had knowledge of the crime.

“…the [CDC] co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the [MMR vaccine] study.

On July 29, US Congressman Bill Posey made his last stand on the floor of the House. Granted five minutes to speak, he laid bare the lying of the CDC in a now-famous 2004 study that exonerated the MMR vaccine and claimed it had no connection to autism.

“No connection to autism” was the lie.

Spiritual & Healing Practices an interview with ginatyler

an interview I did for Spiritual & Healing Practices.

Interview with Homeopath Gina Tyler, DHom
by Gina Tyler, DHom




Editor´s Note: After reading Gina’s interview, I am so proud to be a part of the community of homeopaths. The determination that she demonstrated to provide homeopathic aid to the people of Indonesia–both in direct treatment and teaching them how to self-prescribe for acute ailments–is astounding. A shining example of the empowering ability of Homeopathy and the dedication of the homeopathic profession!


AS: Can you tell us something about your background and how you got involved with homeopathy?

GT: I was born June 12th, 1957 in Java, Indonesia and subsequently moved to the Netherlands. I am presently working in California. My interest in homeopathy blossomed when my mother became very sick with rheumatoid arthritis, which she’s had for about 20 yrs. I watched allopathic MDs giving her toxic drugs year after year, with no results. Her immune system was being destroyed from all these drugs. Not only were they not helping, it was causing crippling adverse effects. She lost so much weight and fell to just 80 pounds. My family moved from the Netherlands to California, thinking the weather would benefit my mother’s health. The severe freezing cold in Holland is not welcome when you have Arthritis. I was already extremely interested in herbalism but had just used it on myself. I made a giant move to try and help my mother overcome this disease with (the use of my obstinate personality and) the study of plant medicine. I started by trying to convince her to change her eating and drinking habits, stopping foods that were toxic to her and things she was drinking that were working against her journey towards health. In the case of Arthritis, foods such as the nightshade family must be avoided. Many methods of alternative meds were introduced into my mother’s life from then on. Starting with Ayurveda and all its treatments of massage—Panchakarma—using plant oils of various kinds. Each day she had to drink a detoxing liquid called Ghee and used a special breathing technique called Pranayama. All of this helped a lot, but I wanted more for her. I started my journey to Homeopathy by going to the alternative healing bookstores and spending hours sitting on the floor reading about Homeopathy. I found a few books to take home and began to study. The book that stood out the most was Miasmatic Diagnosis, written by Dr. Subrata Banerjea. After reading this I wanted more and looked up this author, finding out that he taught homeopathy in Calcutta, India. The journey has not stopped from that point on. I flew to India and took the clinical course. To my amazement, I was not prepared enough. I should have taken more of the basic lessons in homeopathy before I engulfed myself in the intensive hands-on clinic in Calcutta. I came back to California and more years of study followed. I was also making use of all Reflexology, Herbs, Aromatheraphy and Kinesiology. Today as I write, the update on my mother is amazing. She is healthy, strong and energetic. She is the proper weight for her size and travels with me to all corners of this planet. She is the only one out of all her friends age 65-75+ that doesn’t have scores of prescription
drugs in her medicine cabinet. In fact, she only uses homeopathy and a few herbs!

AS: How did you first get involved in volunteer work?

GT: My introduction to volunteer work as a homeopath came from my clinical homeopathic work in Calcutta India under the guidance of Dr. S.K. Banerjea. He runs many slum clinics for the poor and also a mobile homeopathic bus that makes stops in extremely poor areas of Calcutta. I was in Calcutta with Banerjea for about a month. We went to all the slum clinics in the homeopathic pharmacy bus. It was loaded with homeopaths and remedies. The door would swing open in the back and patients would line up for hours in the heat. For each patient a case taking was done, remedies dispensed and a cup of milk was given. At the end of the day I would be dizzy with overload from all the patients, the dirt, the hunger. I felt exhausted but happy. We also saw patients in the main teaching clinic “Bengal Allen Medical Institute”.

AS: How did you get involved in relief for Tsunami victims?

GT: In 2004 the Tsunami on the Indonesian Island of Sumatra (Indonesia has 13,000 islands) killed 300,000 people. I am half Indonesian (born on Java) and the second I heard about this horrific event I had to do something to help. I thought my homeopathic knowledge would come in handy. Donating money was not an option as I fully understood the corruption of politicians hoarding the funds for themselves. Hands on volunteer work seemed to make the most sense. My first attempt to round up aid for the Indonesian trip was to contact all the homeopaths I knew, then the on line forums, schools, homeopathy organizations etc. I needed funds, homeopathic books and remedies. I sent proposals by email for months. This was the basic plan: a) Help in remote health clinics—work hands on as a homeopathic volunteer; b) Teach homeopathy for acutes—101 of basic homeopathy, so the work could continue after I left; c) Bring donated homeopathic remedies to Indonesia; d) Open up doors of communication for future homeopaths who might go there to help. After nine months of frustrating rejections there was no help, no funds and no volunteers to join me. (Two homeopaths offered to send homeopathic emergency kits and a few books.) In the end one homeopath (Genevieve) agreed to meet me in Indonesia. She was a lively 24 year old from Toronto, who had recently graduated in homeopathy. I must say that the major organizations largely ignored my pleas. I received some homeopathic books and remedies from Hpathy team member Dr. Leela. A packet of remedies from Dr. Mass in Pakistan came later while I was already in Bali.

AS: What were some of the difficulties you faced?

GT: I finally entered Indonesia September of 2005 and found a few health clinics in Bali, which were willing to take me in and let me do volunteer work as a homeopath. Getting remedies into Indonesia was a challenge. I had to hand carry them in my luggage. Homeopathy is not illegal in Indonesia, but is simply not known here. If I was searched and they found all the pills, which look like drug contraband, I would be thrown in jail before any explanation was allowed. The punishment for contraband is the death penalty. Another option was to send remedies by post, but customs agents often request bribes (which can be expensive) and even that doesn’t guarantee supplies will get through. I tried both methods but was not happy with either. In the end, I managed to bring in with my luggage my own remedies, cell salts, vitamins, Bach flower remedies and homeopathic literature on acutes. I made a number of trips to Indonesia. Subsequently a homeolab in Spain “Iberhome labs” donated thousands of vials of remedies . A homeopath in Spain named Andres sent the remedies and paid for the shipping costs. I was in heaven! Finally a break! These remedies will last forever, I thought. They could be provided to several clinics in the area and be sent to Sumatra where the tsunami hit so hard in 2004. I had plenty to work with. Another problem was translating different languages, understanding local customs and traditions. The word homeopathy does not exist in their dictionary (Kamus). There was no homeopathic literature, no books like Materia Medica, repertory etc. in the Native Bahasa tongue. I had to write down information about homeopathy and then explain it verbally, using multiple translators.

AS: Who did you teach in Indonesia and how were you received?

GT: I taught homeopathy to allopathic MDs, Midwives, other health care workers, social workers and teachers. They were extremely receptive and open minded and the language problem was the only obstacle. People would gravitate toward me and ask about why I was on that island, what was I doing, what is homeopathy…a million questions. They were extremely curious and receptive, no rhetoric about “Oh that does not work”, and “Homeopathy is only placebo”, I didn’t hear that once. In fact it was a relief compared to working in the USA where your defense for homeopathy becomes a daily ritual as the population has been rather brainwashed by the media and drug TV commercials. The method of teaching was only at the acute level of prescribing. There wasn’t time for anything beyond that. I printed out the basic principles, dispensing methods, acute symptomatology and some keynotes of materia medica. I would take three translators with me. I wish there were homeopathic books written in Bahasa Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesian is the common language spoken in all of Indonesia), but each of the 13,000 Indonesian islands have several of their own native dialects that vary extremely. Maybe if B. JAIN publisher is reading this they can translate some of their massive database into Bahasa Indonesian. The Balinese people are the poorest of poor, the best salary paying around a dollar a day for a twelve hour day. Many don’t have a job. They sleep in huts made from grass and bamboo, on a dirt floor (sometimes cement). When it comes to medicine, they mostly live off the land with medicinal plants they have used for thousands of years called “Jamu”.They are very open to the idea of energy healing. Hands on Reiki type work, medicine men chanting, spiritual healing, healing energy from plants, it’s all part of their culture in Bali (pre-Hindu-anamism). If you told a patient “please drink this water it has magic healing properties” they would. It is easily accepted that there are other forms of healing /medicine besides allopathics. The Balinese Islanders are extremely kind, giving and truly interested in what you are up to. I have never met an entire culture that acts this way, which is another reason I am happy to serve.

AS: Along with homeopathy, what other healing methods did you work with?

GT: I used reflexology sometimes to access meridian points that were out of balance, like in a patient with severe fear and kidney imbalance (the two are related in Chinese medicine). By acupressure via reflexology you can find the imbalance quickly with no need for language. Bach flower essences like Rescue Remedy came in very handy for shock, trauma and anxiety. Charcoal pills made from coconut burnt wood were useful for food poisoning and loose bowels. I also used essential oils. There were traditional Indonesian mixtures. They included Tea Tree oil, Lavender and Eucalyptus. Tea tree for fungal infections, to rid infestation of tics and bugs. Lavender was good for calming and great for sunburns. JAMU, traditional Indonesian medicinal plants were used often. My favorite was Kumis kucing (orthosiphon stamineus). I have used this plant since I was a toddler for urinary/kidney imbalances. Some others were Bertowal, to cleanse the blood, very bitter! Sambiloto also to cleanse the blood. Ginger had a place for stomach upsets. Papaya was helpful for digestion. We used Turmeric for its antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-hemorrhagic properties. Aloe Vera came in handy for burns. It works instantly and the plant grows everywhere. Each village also had a Holyman who did spiritual healing. There’s an excellent book called “OBAT ASLI”, the healing herbs of Bali by Ibu Robin Lim, owner of the Bumi Sehat clinic in Ubud Bali. For more on these traditional medicines:, (crisis care)

AS: Could you describe a typical day in a clinic?

GT: There was a very remote clinic used only by the local people of this village. The director was a dedicated woman from Australia who moved to Bali 10 years ago, opened a clinic for the poor and never left. They call her Mama Gloria. Oct 10- 2005 : Kept a journal, Did very little formal case taking as communication was lacking/ impossible. Acute key symptoms had to jump at me. I could not spend hours on each case, only minutes. A typical day included a pregnant woman in for check up. I gave vitamins and cell salts as an overall tonic since most expectant mothers are very weak and are lacking nutrients. Various injuries which received Arnica. A teenage girl, highly emotional with a runny nose cold, green discharge got Puls. A woman traumatized by domestic problems gets Ignatia. Bach flower Rescue Remedy goes to a woman with stress insomnia. A 3rd degree burn on a little boy requires Cantharis, Urtica. Patient with loose rattling cough gets Antimonium tartaricum. A severe eye injury receives Euphrasia. Late in the evening sometimes midnight to 2 am patients would come to the main house asking for help with illnesses, injuries. At the end of the day I would make the one hour walk through a dirt path in the jungle.back to a guesthouse. On the way I met the local rice farmers (no tourists come here so I always caused heads to turn). They would ask in broken English “What are you doing here?” “Where are you staying?” I’d say I was staying with Mama Gloria and volunteering in the clinic (in my broken bahasa Indonesian). There would be an immediate acceptance, big smile like you have known them forever. These beautifull people have nothing material yet have the most plentiful hearts.

AS: Did your work in Bali have any lasting effect?

GT: Yes, I truly believe my visits had a lasting effect. Some of the clinics have continued to use homeopathics. I get email from several clinic directors, sometimes they ask me to send more remedies: Dear Gina, We think of you every day at Bumi Sehat, as we use the homeopathic remedies dozens of times every single day to treat patients. The remedy I am nearly out of, and is so useful to us, due to the fact we have so many children here… is Belladonna. There has been an epidemic of dengue fever, so the Belladonna 200 has been needed. If you know anyone who is coming to Bali anytime, please see if we can get some Belladonna. There have been so many births that we had to add a room to the Bumi Clinic. Much love Peace, Ibu Robin (Bumi Sehat Bali). Doctor Gina, You are our Angel… We are using your remedies everyday. I am about to buy a bog ‘Drybox’ like a refrigerator that keeps the homeopathics dry so that they will last forever. We just had a difficult birth last night… Last birth of 8 in a row… Malpresented baby… Asynclitic and oblique… Would have been a cesarean… but for Pulsatilla 200. We then gave her Caullophylum to strengthen the contractions and she delivered a huge baby boy… So alert and wonderful. We also had a preemie. Wet lungs and chest retractions… Gave Ant. tart and they dried right up. So you see how everyday you help the people of your country, love Ibu robin Thank you (Bumi Sehat Bali) I was invited back to teach the allopathic staff in Government Hospitals next time I return. Other homeopaths have come after me, following in my footsteps to volunteer in these clinics. I opened the door.

AS: How do you relax when you’re not practicing homeopathy?

GT: In addition to practicing homeopathy, I am an artist.

Can the B vitamins vanquish hot flashes?

Note to readers: (April 20, 2014 edit)
I edited this post and moved the information about methylation down to the bottom of the post to clarify my writing. I think I muddied the waters a bit by adding the information into the body of the post. The ensuing comments, although always welcome, focused more on methylation and the MTHFR gene mutation than the information I was trying to present about menopause hot flashes and the B vitamins. I’ve done this not to curtail the conversation below, but rather to clarify my point about supplementing with B vitamins to eliminate hot flashes. If you are an under-methylator, please make sure you read down to the bottom for the additonal information that might be valid to your specific health issues.


There is no question that I’ve presented theory after theory on why we might suffer from hot flashes and what might stop them. I’ve talked about the acid/alkaline body, boron, carbohydrates, raisins, and potatoes.

I’ve read so many different reasons why the “experts” think women have hot flashes it could make your head spin. Do we have a shrinking section of our brains that handles the hot flash signal? This is unsubstantiated and just sounds ridiculous. Is it the release of toxins because we no longer slough off the blood of our periods? Makes no sense to me. Periods are not about getting rid of toxins per se. Can flashes only be treated by replacing the estrogen you’re losing through menopause with HRT like so many doctors say? Why should we work to replace something your body naturally wants to stop producing? This always aggravates me. Why do doctors think they know better than mother nature?

The one thing I’ve read consistently that does make sense is that your thermostat is broken. Maybe not in those words, but that your brain thinks your body is hot before it is and then the brain dilates the blood vessels to throw off the excess heat that’s not really there so you have a flash…or something like that. I’ve read also that the brain thinks you’re cold when you’re not…you get the picture.

If the problem is a dysfunctional thermostat, then it seems it would be a problem with the system of your brain that controls body temperature. This would point to the hypothalamus.

I decided that I needed to solve the broken thermostat problem myself using the logic I’ve used to heal my histamine intolerance. I started with the idea that menopause has caused an imbalance in the hypothalamus and that imbalance needs to be corrected.

It was easy to find within minutes that the nutrient that supports the hypothalamus’ function is B1. But this was just the tip of the iceberg for me. I naturally had to research for three more hours to figure out what the trigger for the imbalance is. Why is the B1 out of kilter? And is it really that?

I continued my search to back-up the B1 finding by looking at what Asian women’s diets look like. No matter where you look, someone is bound to write that Asian women do not suffer from hot flashes and Japanese women don’t even have a word for hot flashes. This is almost always attributed to soy. But again, how short sighted is it to focus only on one thing in an entire diet? I wondered if something they eat has a lot of B1, so I started to research rice.

I wasn’t getting the results I wanted so I moved on. I started researching the fight or flight reaction in the brain because that starts with the amygdala telling the hypothalamus to get busy. So I was back in the autonomic nervous system. It was in that search that I saw the link between anxiety and homocysteine. I honestly cannot remember the original thing I read, but whatever it was propelled me into a search to understand homocysteine.

From the site Life Extension:

Homocysteine is an intermediary within a metabolic cycle known as methylation. Methylation reactions, relying largely on B-vitamin cofactors (particularly, B6, B12, and folic acid), are critical for the proper synthesis of the neurotransmitters that play an important role in mood regulation.

As B-vitamin levels decline, the methylation cycle becomes impaired-leading to a concurrent increase in homocysteine levels (because it is no longer being recycled efficiently) and a disruption in neurotransmitter synthesis. The close relationship between neurotransmitter synthesis and homocysteine formation has lead some researchers to suspect that there is a link between homocysteine and mood. Indeed, studies suggest that levels of homocysteine are an effective marker for B-vitamin status, and that changes in homocysteine levels correlate with changes in mood.

To me it sounded like a relationship between the autonomic nervous system that the hypothalamus is a key part of, or some kind of overlap in symptoms of imbalance.
Keep in mind, methylation is linked to histamine intolerance. It is believed under-methylators (there is a link below if you do not know what I am talking about) do not process histamine or homocysteine properly. This is one of the reasons I kept going in my research on homocysteine.

It is interesting to me that all of these things result in the same kind of symptoms. Take a look at the lists and you will see fatigue, brain fog and a host of other symptoms that could be menopause, high homocysteine, or even mast cell degranulation disorders like histamine intolerance. Depression is a big one that shows up on all the lists.

I started to put together the importance of all of the B vitamins as I worked through my research. Remember that vitamin B6 is vital in controlling the DAO enzyme responsible for breaking down histamine in your gut. B1 (thiamine) is vital for the hypothalamus to function properly. Vitamin B9, (folic acid), helps bring down homocysteine levels. Vitamin B12 is vital for proper neurological health. It all seemed so interconnected to me.

As I kept researching, I started finding links to folate and hot flashes, with the suggestion that women should take it to reduce hot flashes.

The last thing I wanted to know that brought it all home was do homocysteine levels rise as estrogen falls?


So did menopause trigger my histamine intolerance alone or did it also raise my homocysteine level? I’ve always said it is never one thing that causes our problems. In my final theory as to why I am histamine intolerant I explored adrenal fatigue and too much cortisol. I still believe this could be the case. But now I also wonder if I have a high homocysteine level. If that’s the case, supplementing with B9 could really help eliminate hot flashes. And I’ll go one step further. Why not supplement with B1 for the hypothalamus and B9 for the homocysteine, because I still have not ruled out a sluggish hypothalamus.

Theoretically you could supplement with B6 to support DAO production, B9 to lower homocysteine levels and B1 to support hypothalamus function. Add in B12 for neurological health and you have a full spectrum of support.

I don’t really like to take supplements, but it seems to me it’s difficult to get the daily amounts eating food only, so I am going to supplement for a few weeks and see if I notice a difference.

It is my opinion, and keep in my mind I am not a doctor but just a menopausal woman sitting at her laptop at her dining room table with a cat in the way, that if you supplement with vitamins B1, B6, B9, and B12, you can bring your body back into balance and reduce histamine intolerance and high homocysteine levels, as well as eliminate hot flashes.

As long as you are careful to not overdo, you can supplement with B vitamins. If you are getting too much B6, for example, you might have numbness or tingling in your extremities or sensitivity to light. You’d probably have an upset stomach and other digestive issues before that happens, however. And before you decide to take anything, please read about the contraindications and results of overdosing.

Other than taking a multivitamin, there is a very easy way to supplement with all of them at once. Red Star Nutritional Yeast has all the B’s. I used it in the past, but worried at some point that I was getting too much B6 with it and instead of just cutting back on it I stopped it all together. And ya know what happened, now that I look back on when my hot flashes started again…

Red Star is an inactive yeast. It is not a probiotic. The B vitamins are actually an additive. There are other products called Brewers yeast that say their vitamins are natural to the product, but you have to take a lot of it to get the same amount that Red Star has in it, and I figure if I’m going to take a supplement this one seems to work for me. (I have no affiliation with this product other than I’ve used it for years. I am vegetarian and am aware of B12 deficiencies in non meat-eaters)

If you do decide to supplement, it is best to do it so you get B9 (folic acid) with vitamin B12. Folic acid can mask a B12 deficiency, so it is recommended to take both.

Ultimately, if the B vitamins do work I might not really know which one worked I guess. If I only need to take B1 to jump-start my hypothalamus and I don’t really need to lower homocysteine I won’t really know. Or vice versa. But I have the Red Star here and I’m not really feeling the need to figure that out right now. If someone out there tries one and not the other, I’d love to hear the results.

For now, I want my hot flashes to stop and am willing to take all the B’s to stop them.

So there you have it. My latest big stab at vanquishing those demonic hot flashes. Let me know down in the comments what you think or if you’ve already tried to eliminate hot flashes with the B’s.


A word to the under-methylators in the crowd

I am talking about hot flashes in separate terms from histamine intolerance. I do not believe I am an under-methylator. Menopause triggered my histamine intolerance. My hot flashes were quite horrible when I was acutely histamine intolerant so I do still believe there was a connection there, but my histamine is under control now and I still have quite a few flashes a day. They are milder and quicker, but still quite bothersome. I also believe they are an indicator of an imbalance in the body and show the presence of inflammation. I do believe inflammation is deadly, thus the ultimate goal in getting rid of hot flashes is to get rid of systemic inflammation.

If you are reading all of this and think you are histamine intolerant and think you are an under-methylator, taking B vitamins, especially vitamin B9 (folic acid) as I will ultimately suggest might not be a good idea for you. If you do not know what methylation is I suggest you take a look at this link. It is a very complicated system and I would not be able to explain it better than the blog I am suggesting you read. There are many scientific and medical sites that explain methylation, but this guy does it very clearly and succinctly.268.gif

If you are an under-methylator and want to explore the idea of using B6, research the alternate way to keep homocysteine from building up with B6/magnesium. But supplementation with folic acid might not be for you.

Also, there is something called the MTHFR gene mutation. Interestingly enough people who have this often suffer from mast cell dysfunction which could very well manifest as histamine intolerance. They also often cannot regulate homocysteine levels. I think that’s a really interesting overlap. But if you have that mutation, supplementing with folate might be complicated. Some people do well with folate supplementation and others don’t. But it is something you have to solve to get your homocysteine levels down and folate is the thing to do it.

I edited this post and moved the information about methylation down to the bottom of the post to clarify my writing. I think I muddied the waters a bit by adding the information into the body of the post. The ensuing comments, although always welcome, focused more on methylation and the MTHFR gene mutation than the information I was trying to present about menopause hot flashes and the B vitamins. I’ve done this not to curtail the conversation below, but rather to clarify my point about supplementing with B vitamins to eliminate hot flashes. If you are an under-methylator, please make sure you read down to the bottom for the additonal information that might be valid to your specific health issues.


There is no question that I’ve presented theory after theory on why we might suffer from hot flashes and what might…

Magnesium -signs of deficiency……….

Signs of magnesium deficiency are everywhere in the United States, if you know what to look for. Unfortunately, the symptoms are so incredibly common that they constantly slip under the radar! Hardly anyone, especially doctors, notice that the ailments we suffer from on a daily basis are actually magnesium deficiency symptoms… and we’re all paying for it.
Just about every single person you come into contact with – especially those with a health problem, but even those with only minor complaints – are suffering in some way from this nationwide deficiency. Including you!

What Exactly Is Magnesium?

Magnesium is life.

It is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body, right next to sulfur (which is JUST as important).

Along with being a mineral, magnesium is also an electrolyte. “Sports drinks” (aka sugar-filled scams) claim to contain electrolytes such as magnesium, potassium, and sodium because we sweat away these important nutrients during exercise, and their deficiency is what leads to the common problems athletes face, such as muscle cramping! But believe me – electrolytes (especially magnesium) do so much more than treat and prevent muscle cramps.

First off, electrolytes are what allow us to be living, electrical beings. They are responsible for all electrical activity (and thus brain conductivity) in the body. Without electrolytes like magnesium, muscles can’t fire, your heart cannot beat, and your brain doesn’t receive any signals. We need magnesium to stay alive, point blank. As soon as we don’t have enough of it, we start to lose the energy and conductivity that keeps us going. Technically, as soon as we become deficient, we slowly begin to die, getting more aches and pains day by day, feeling worse year after year. I can’t stress it enough… signs of magnesium deficiency are everywhere, if you just look.

Magnesium is a cofactor in over three hundred reactions in the body, necessary for transmission of nerve impulses, temperature regulations, detoxification in the liver, and formation of bones and teeth. However, magnesium shows its true power in cardiovascular health. The Weston A. Price foundation writes, “Magnesium alone can fulfill the role of many common cardiac medications: magnesium inhibits blood clots (like aspirin), thins the blood (like Coumadin), blocks calcium uptake (like calcium channel-blocking durgs such as Procardia) and relaxes blood vessels (like ACE inhibitors such as Vasotec) (Pelton, 2001).”

Nearly EVERYONE has signs of magnesium deficiency but we don’t realize it…

Symptoms include:

  • Constipation
  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Behavioral disturbances
  • Lethargy
  • Impaired memory/thinking
  • Seizures
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Pain
  • Muscle cramps
  • Chronic back pain
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Muscular pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Anger
  • Aggression
  • ADHD
  • Brain fog
  • Tension
  • Anxiety disorders such as OCD

Anything that makes you tense and tight could potentially be due to magnesium deficiency. If you can’t relax or you can’t stop — think magnesium! Full-blown health problems can even be tied back to this crucial mineral. Most people with ANY chronic disease or issue benefit greatly from magnesium supplementation therapy. This is because chronic illness = stress, and stress depletes magnesium. The following are conditions that are likely to have magnesium deficiency as a part of the puzzle:

“Similarly, patients with diagnoses of depression, epilepsy, diabetes mellitus, tremor, Parkinsonism, arrhythmias, circulatory disturbances (stroke, cardiac infarction, arteriosclerosis), hypertension, migraine, cluster headache, cramps, neuro-vegetative disorders, abdominal pain, osteoporosis, asthma, stress dependent disorders, tinnitus, ataxia, confusion, preeclampsia, weakness, might also be consequences of the magnesium deficiency syndrome.”

Amazingly, the article referenced above even mentions neuro-vegetative disorders as a possible result of magnesium deficiency. This would include comas. Stress hormone production requires high levels of magnesium and stressful experiences can immediately lead to complete depletion of magnesium stores; could this be a contributing factor to why we see comas after traumatic accidents/injuries? As I mentioned above, magnesium is an electrolyte responsible for brain signals and conductivity. Without magnesium, people in comas may not be able to come to and resume conductivity. Many people with diabetes also fall into diabetic comas. Diabetes is listed as another possible consequence of magnesium deficiency. Could this be a factor in diabetic comas as well? Something to think about and research further!


Do you crave chocolate? Why, when people are stressed out, do they go for chocolate? Chocolate is one of the highest food sources of magnesium.

Magnesium is associated with so many disorders that Dr. Carolyn Dean of the Nutritional Magnesium Association has devoted an entire book to discussing how she has treated thousands of patients for a wide array of diseases, with magnesium as the primary component. Her book, The Magnesium Miracle, is a must-read if you have any of the magnesium deficiency symptoms above, or any health problems in general – as there is likely a magnesium component to everything. Check out 50 Studies Suggest That Magnesium Deficiency Is Killing Us.

Why Don’t Doctors Find Magnesium Deficiencies In Tests?

Unfortunately, conventional medicine has not woken up to the amount of research that has been done on magnesium deficiency.

One of the reasons Western Medicine is so off base with magnesium is how they test it: with blood tests.

Blood tests do not yield ANY information about magnesium… why? Because the body controls the levels of blood magnesium very tightly. If the magnesium in the blood drops just a little bit, you’re going to have a heart attack. It’s that sample. So to prevent this, the body will rob all of its cells, tissues, and bones of magnesium in order to keep the blood levels constant. If you do a blood test for magnesium, the cells could be completely empty while your blood levels remain constant.

What’s worse is that magnesium is not even in your blood. 99% of the magnesium in the body is stored in the cells that get robbed, while a mere 1% of your body’s total magnesium is in the blood. These tests are a complete waste of time, and they’re not educating doctors to this reality.

“A serum test for magnesium is actually worse than ineffective, because a test result that is within normal limits lends a false sense of security about the status of the mineral in the body. It also explains why doctors don’t recognize magnesium deficiency; they assume serum magnesium levels are an accurate measure of all the magnesium in the body.” – Dr. Carolyn Dean, The Magnesium Miracle.

Why Are We So Deficient?

Here’s the short(ish) version: Number one, we’re being poisoned by our food. Number two, we’re increasingly stressed out. We’re running our engines on high to keep up with life and it’s draining us. Stress hormone production requires high levels of magnesium and stressful experiences lead to depletion of magnesium stores. Number three, we’re eating more sugar than ever. For every molecule of sugar we consume, our bodies use 54 molecules of magnesium to process it. Fourth, low levels in the soil and modern farming techniques deplete stores of magnesium. And lastly, magnesium is depleted by many pharmaceutical drugs and estrogen compounds such as oral contraceptives, antibiotics, cortisone, prednisone, and blood pressure medications (“Drug-induced nutrient depletion handbook,” Pelton, 2001). Diuretics in coffee and tea (caffeine) also raise excretion levels. Oh and by the way – flouride competes for absorption with magnesium!

Nowadays, nearly everyone is magnesium deficient – no test needed. Refined/processed foods are stripped of their mineral, vitamin, and fiber content. These are anti-nutrient foods because they actually steal magnesium in order to be metabolized. When consumed, they demand that we supplement with magnesium or we are destined to break down eventually due to severe deficiency. Like I said, sugar is the worst offender. Every single molecule of sugar you consume drags over 50 times the amount of magnesium out of your body.

Well, what if you eat a healthy diet? Processed products are not the only foods that are devoid of magnesium. In general, magnesium has been depleted from topsoil, diminishing dietary intake across the board while our need for magnesium has increased, due to the high levels of toxic exposure we come across in our daily lives (air, water, plastics, chemicals, the list goes on!). The soil is depleted of magnesium because of the pesticides that are sprayed on all conventionally grown plants and worldwide pollution that affects even the cleanest fields. Pesticides also kill those beneficial bacteria/fungi that are necessary in order for plants to convert soil nutrients into plant nutrients usable by humans.

Polio-the hard core facts about the disease and the vaccine

Important FACTS about Polio mainstream media wont tell you-

(thanks to Dana for doing all the research)

There is a wild strain of Polio, and a Vaccine-Induced strain of Polio. The vaccine strain occurs when a baby gets a vaccine and the caregiver gets the virus from changing the diapers for up to 28 days. And, as I mentioned earlier in this long post — from excrement in their water supply.

The original (wild) strain of Polio was caused by DDT. Polio is not, and was never, a contagious disease… only the vaccine strain is contagious, and only via fecal matter. The original “strain” of Polio is not contagious, never was.

your pets and homeopathic use

Thanks to Dr. Deva Khalsa (vet and Homeopath)

Homeopathy is fun to use and the fact that it works so very well with so many medical problems makes it all the more rewarding!

Most of the commonly used remedies are inexpensive and easy to find.  I suggest you compile a kit of common remedies to have ready and waiting when minor emergencies occur because there’s often not the time to run to the store and this stuff always seem to happen late at night or on a major holiday!

Homeopathy has particular rules associated with using it and this can be confusing and put off prospective students. But for many simple and common accidents and illnesses, it can be pretty simple to use. The first thing to do is to assemble a homeopathic kit to have at home and then buy a book or two about homeopathy. Homeopathic remedies number in the thousands and are made from anything and everything. But you only need to learn some of the rules of homeopathy and have about a dozen remedies to be off and running.


Here is the straight goods on how to work with Homeopathic remedies.

  • Homeopathic remedies need to melt on the gums so they should not be hidden in a treat or in food. Our dogs have a built in pouch on the side of their mouth and the remedies can go right in there.
  • Try not to handle the remedies but drop them straight from the bottle into your dog’s cheek.
  • Remedies come in tiny white pellet or liquid form. Either form can be placed directly into your dogs cheek.
  • It’s not important if you give one drop of the remedy or five or one homeopathic pellet or three because homeopathy is an energy medicine and there is typically none of the physical substance left in the remedy. One tiny white pellet could treat an elephant and 10 pellets could treat a mouse. That’s a hard one to digest, if you’ll excuse my pun, but people are always worried about how much to give and how often to give. The amount is no big deal and you give it until they get better. If it’s not working at all, you stop giving the remedy. We’re all just too used to using antibiotics that have to be calculated to the weight of the dog and have a certain time they need to be given. This is simply not the case with homeopathy.
  • Because homeopathy is an energy medicine the remedies should not be stored next to heavy electromagnetic appliances such as televisions and computers or left in the bright hot sun for a long time.


Unlike drugs, Homeopathy does not work by body weight (e.g., give 500 mg per 25 pounds of body weight). With Homeopathy, the original physical substance is sequentially diluted and this is why you have the funny numbers after the name of the remedy. Arnica 6x does not mean that you have to give it six times! It means that the remedy has been diluted six times. To confound you even more, the more dilute the remedy the more powerful it is, so very highly diluted remedies are usually only available to doctors. The potencies most commonly available to you are 6x and 30x (diluted 1/10 either 6 or 30 times) and 6c and 30c ( diluted 1/100 either 6 or 30 times).


Homeopathic remedies are chosen in accordance with how the patient experiences his illness. For instance, one person who has a cold may want everyone in the house at attendance and worrying about him while another wants to be left alone to lie quietly in the dark. Each of these individuals would need a different remedy based on the individual picture they present. Let’s say your dog has arthritis and stiffness. Look that up in a Homeopathy text book and you’ll be given a choice of remedies. The specific way the problem presents in your dog will determine the remedy you choose.

For example, look at arthritic stiffness in dogs. Your choice of remedy might depend on whether your dog is worse or better when he first gets up after resting. If he’s better after resting, he might need the remedy Bryonia as noted above. I’ve found that most dogs are stiff at first but after walking a bit they get less stiff after they move around for a bit. Oftentimes these same dogs are worse in cold damp weather. With this presentation you’d likely choose the remedy Rhus toxidendron.

Rhus tox, as it is commonly known, is much cheaper than NSAID’s and also much safer to use. If you were to determine that Rhus tox was the best remedy for your dog, you would simply put a few pellets to melt in his cheek pouch about three times a day and watch him over the next week, noting changes in his condition. If he gets better, you’ve got the right remedy and if there is no change, there’s no harm done. Go back and do a little more reading in your handy books on homeopathy. When you have the right remedy, and you’ll know because there will be improvement.


You may want to go out and purchase these commonly used remedies to have on hand in case the need arises. They are small and make a great travel kit too.

  • Apis mellifica – great for bee and other insect bites. Give every 20 minutes for a few doses after a bee sting.
  • Arnica – good for general pain, stiffness due to overexertion, soreness and musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Arsenicum album – great for GI upsets from eating spoiled food where there is both vomiting and diarrhea. Give twice an hour for a few hours.
  • Borax (the remedy, not the powder) – excellent for fear of thunderstorms and fireworks. Give this at the 6c potency twice a day for a month during the season.
  • Calendula (can be used both as an oral remedy and as an external ointment) – use for skin infections or any kind of external infection. It’s a remarkable healing agent and a tube of the ointment should always be on hand to apply topically to scrapes, infections and wounds. You can also buy a tincture and dilute it 1/10 and flush any cuts or wounds with it.
  • Hepar sulphur – is wonderful to treat painful abscesses anywhere on the body and painful infected anal glands.
  • Hypericum – is an excellent remedy to give for any pain due to nerve damage or injuries to nerve-rich areas. I once closed my finger in a window and learned firsthand the wonders of Hypericum. Great for when you cut your dog’s toenails too short.
  • Myristica – phenomenal remedy for anal sac infections and chronic anal sac problems.
  • Rhus tox – for arthritis that’s better after moving around, general musculoskeletal injuries, red swollen eyes, skin infections and skin itching.
  • Ruta – fantastic for any injury to tendons or ligaments and this remedy has a real affinity for the knee so you would use it immediately after any knee or cruciate injury.
  • Silicea – pushes foreign bodies like splinters or foxtails out of the skin.
  • Ledum – the first choice for any type of puncture wound, including those from insect bites. Insect bites that require
  • Apis will be hot and red whereas bites that require Ledum will be cool and appears bruised.

With a small investment and a little planning, you can build your own Homeopathis kit. These remedies aren’t that difficult to use and can give your dog fast and effective relief from many common injuries and illnesses.
