Mebendazole (MBZ) Just what is it?

Posted in Health on December 29, 2013 by betweentwopines

From Viewzone comes this article….

Mebendazole (MBZ)

If you have ever cared for young children then you are probably familiar with this medicine under the name of Vermox, Ovex, Antiox, and Pripsen. It is usually prescribed to treat pinworms, roundworms, whip worms and hookworms — organisms that find an unwelcome home in our intestines. For some time now, scientists have known how it works, but the method of death meted out to the targeted parasites was of little interest to them. But that has since changed.

How it works…

This next part gets a little technical. I’ll try to explain things in a general way. I’m by no means a scientist or biologists but I’ll share with you what I have learned.

One of the misconceptions that people have about a cell is that it contains a nucleus, a cell wall and everything inside (cytoplasm) kind of sloshes around in a liquid or gel. In fact, the inside of a cell contains a kind of scaffold made of micro-tubules, also called spindles, that have the ability to assemble and disassemble quicky. This network of rigid micro-tubules inside the cell gives it shape, structure and also has the ability to transfer organelles and various molecules to different parts within the cell, functioning like a railway system. But its most vital function is cell division.

You will easily understand the role of spindles by viewing this short animation.

Here is a video of the micro-tubules, showing how they assemble and dis-assemble. This is quite an amazing design and reminds us of the complexity of life.

Mebendazole is known to interfere and inhibit the assembly of the spindles, thus preventing the ability of the cells to divide. The cell eventually dies of old age or aptosis. Mebendazole is highly selective and somehow targets only cancerous cells (as well as a host of intestinal parasites). At the end of this article I will post a few of the many scientific papers acknowledging these facts.

You will also see why there is virtually no pharmaceutical interest in mebendazole. The big pharmaceutical companies are promoting more toxic chemotherapy drugs because there is no profit margin in mebendazole. It’s yet another example of corporate profit outweighing human benefits.

What is Cancer?

When a cell divides, the common notion is that the two resulting cells are exactly identical. This is not correct. The process of copying DNA is not perfect and there are usually errors, although these are typically not serious. In fact, if a cell has too many errors in its DNA code it will not be able to reproduce and the errors die with that cell.

Human cells have a maximum number of times that they can reproduce themselves before the accumulated errors finally prevent reproduction — it’s called the Hayflick Limit. Most scientists agree that this number is around 60 times.

This “programmed” lifespan of a cell is determined by the length of a benign string of molecules attached to the ends of the DNA coils. Like leaders on a movie film, these break off or become misaligned during the replication process and provide a buffer zone, protecting the real DNA code. The longer a cell’s leader, called a telomere, the more it can reproduce and the longer an organism can live.

Biologists have found that cancer cells are cells in which the damaged DNA code results in the activation of the telomere, causing it to regrow. The hayflick limit becomes infinite. The mutation makes the cell essentially immortal! Cancer does its damage by outliving and outnumbering the normal cells.

The fight against cancer has been one of isolation and selectively poisoning the cells. When cancer cells have integrated themselves in vital tissues, this becomes a major problem. Often, surgical attacks of cancerous tissue seems to stimulate their growth even more, resulting in a temporary relapse with regrowth. Likewise, chemotherapy and radiation are not selective enough to protect healthy cells and their method of death is toxic.

Mebendazole is different. It doesn’t kill the cells with poison. It specifically prevents the cell from reproducing.

What has Big Pharma done?

Mebendazole was first synthesized by Janssen Pharmaceutical (later bought by Johnson & Johnson) in 1968. Its value as an anti-worm medicine was recognized and by 1972 mebendazole was being marketed under the name Vermox. Because the prescribed use was eliminating parasites it was inexpensive and widely used. The selective toxicity of mebendazole to cancerous cells had not yet been discovered.

Back in 1960 the US Government declared war on cancer and funded the Cancer Chemotherapy National Science Center. This agency received over 1000 samples of chemicals — mostly synthetic — that were exposed to a variety of animal and human cancer cells.

It must have been like a scene from the movie, Andromeda Strain, where thousands of substances were tested to kill the alien virus brought back in an interstellar probe. With such large sample numbers it was expected that some would prove effective in killing tumors. And that’s exactly what happened.

In 1964 a worker at a contractor for the Center thought to include some natural chemistry in the study. He submitted a resin from the bark of the Pacific Yew tree (Taxus brevifolia), an endangered species endemic to the Washington State. It killed tumor cells while not harming healthy cells. They called it Taxol.

The down side to this discovery was that it took 12,000 pounds of fresh Yew bark to make just 10 grams of Taxol! At first, no pharmaceutical company was interested in developing the drug and trials with human subjects were put off. Only in 1979, when Taxol was shown to interfere with micro-tubules, did it receive revived interest as a profitable anti-cancer medicine.

Same, Same, but Different

Researchers were discovering the value of microtubule inhibitors in 1978. The safest one, mebendazole, was already on the market as a treatment for worms, and it was cheap. For a pharmaceutical company to invest in a cancer cure, it had to make a profit. So the next best candidate was the resin in the Pacific Yew — Taxol.

Taxol is a microtubule inhibitor… sort of. Rather than prevent the tubules from forming, like mebendazole, Taxol acts like a glue and prevents the tubules from disassembly. It’s a process called polymerization. This damages the internal structure of the cell in ways not related only to cell division. The side-effects of Taxol are many, while mebendazole has a reputation for being harmless and well tolerated.

But there’s another big difference between Taxol and mebendazole — the price. Taxol costs more than $200 a dose compared with the $2 for some chewable Vermox pills.

A prophylaxis agent?

Before I list the studies, I could not help but wonder why a person wouldn’t take mebendazole periodically in one’s life to purge the body of cancerous cells. It is known to be well tolerated with little toxicity. In some of the studies I will quote, mebendazole was taken with Tagamet(TM) to reduce the metabolizing effects of the liver and increase blood levels. This would appear to be an idea that ought to be explored.

Mebendazole is not currently recognized as an anti-cancer drug. The lack of investment by Big Pharma in conducting the many trials and protocols will likely not change this status. But physicians are capable of prescribing the medicine at their own discretion. And ordinary people should be able to secure this medicine themselves.

As promised — here are some references for further research of mebendazole:

“… Oral administration of MZ in mice elicited a strong antitumor effect in a s.c. model and reduced lung colonies in experimentally induced lung metastasis without any toxicity when compared with paclitaxel-treated mice. [emphasis added] We speculate that tumor cells may be defective in one mitotic checkpoint function and sensitive to the spindle inhibitor MZ. Abnormal spindle formation may be the key factor determining whether a cell undergoes apoptosis, whereas strong microtubule inhibitors elicit toxicity even in normal cells…”

“We have found that mebendazole (MZ), a derivative of benzimidazole, induces a dose- and time-dependent apoptotic response in human lung cancer cell lines. In this study, MZ arrested cells at the G2-M phase before the onset of apoptosis, as detected by using fluorescence-activated cell sorter analysis. MZ treatment also resulted in mitochondrial cytochrome c release, followed by apoptotic cell death. Additionally, MZ appeared to be a potent inhibitor of tumor cell growth with little toxicity to normal WI38 and human umbilical vein endothelial cells. When administered p.o. to nu/nu mice, MZ strongly inhibited the growth of human tumor xenografts and significantly reduced the number and size of tumors in an experimental model of lung metastasis. In assessing angiogenesis, we found significantly reduced vessel densities in MZ-treated mice compared with those in control mice. These results suggest that MZ is effective in the treatment of cancer and other angiogenesis-dependent diseases…”

Mebendazole inhibits growth of human adrenocortical carcinoma cell lines implanted in nude mice, Daniele Martarelli, Pierluigi Pompei, Caterina Baldi and Giovanni Mazzoni, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, Volume 61, Number 5, 809-817

“Adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare tumor of the adrenal gland which requires new therapeutic approaches as its early diagnosis is difficult and prognosis poor despite therapies used. Recently, mebendazole has been proved to be effective against different cancers. The aim of our study was to evaluate whether mebendazole may result therapeutically useful in the treatment of human adrenocortical carcinoma. We analyzed the effect of mebendazole on human adrenocortical carcinoma cells in vitro and after implantation in nude mice. In order to clarify mechanisms of mebendazole action, metastases formation, apoptosis and angiogenesis were also investigated. Mebendazole significantly inhibited cancer cells growth, both in vitro and in vivo, the effects being due to the induction of apoptosis. Moreover, mebendazole inhibited invasion and migration of cancer cells in vitro, and metastases formation in vivo. Overall, these data suggest that treatment with mebendazole, also in combination with standard therapies, could provide a new protocol for the inhibition of adrenocortical carcinoma growth…”

“…A 48-year-old man with adrenocortical carcinoma had disease progression with systemic therapies including mitotane, 5-fluorouracil, streptozotocin, bevacizumab, and external beam radiation therapy. Treatment with all chemotherapeutic drugs was ceased, and he was prescribed mebendazole, 100 mg twice daily, as a single agent. His metastases initially regressed and subsequently remained stable. While receiving mebendazole as a sole treatment for 19 months, his disease remained stable. He did not experience any clinically significant adverse effects, and his quality of life was satisfactory. His disease subsequently progressed after 24 months of mebendazole monotherapy. Conclusion: Mebendazole may achieve long-term disease control of metastatic adrenocortical carcinoma. It is well tolerated and the associated adverse effects are minor.…”

“…mebendazole significantly extended mean survival up to 63% in syngeneic and xenograft orthotopic mouse glioma models. Mebendazole has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for parasitic infections, has a long track-record of safe human use, and was effective in our animal models with doses documented as safe in humans. Our findings indicate that mebendazole is a possible novel anti-brain tumor therapeutic that could be further tested in clinical trials…

Heres a good video about B17.…

My wife had stomach cancer and she survived. One of the things we did is try to get B17, I printed a couple of articles and gave them to her doctor. He read them in silence, then he looked at me little disturbed and ask : “Where did you get this???” Then he said he doesn’t know about it and kept the papers.

Weeks later I found a place selling fresh apricots. This is what I did :

Get all the pulp out and find the seed. The shell is very hard. I broke them and extracted a little nut inside that looks like an almond. I made her eat 10 of them everyday. After a week, she already felt some good effects.

DHS insider gives final warning

Posted in Conspiracy, Warnings on December 29, 2013 by betweentwopines

By Doug Hagmann

Under the cover and amid the distraction of the Christmas bustle, I had my last “official” contact with a source inside the Department of Homeland Security known as “Rosebud” in my writings. My source is leaving his position, retiring along with numerous others choosing to leave this bureaucratic monstrosity.

For this contact, my source took unprecedented measures to be certain that our contact was far off the radar of prying government eyes and ears. I was stunned at the lengths he employed, and even found myself somewhat annoyed by the inconvenience that his cloak-and-dagger approach caused. It was necessary, according to my source, because all department heads under FEMA and DHS are under orders to identify anyone disclosing any information for termination and potential criminal prosecution.

“DHS is like a prison environment, complete with prison snitches,” he said, referring to the search for leaks and leakers. And the warden is obsessed. Ask anyone in DHS. No one trusts anyone else and whatever sources might be left are shutting up. The threats that have been made far exceed anything I’ve ever seen. Good people are afraid for their lives and the lives of their families. We’ve all been threatened. They see the writing on the wall and are leaving. It’s not a joke and not hype.”

The following is a narrative from my source, prefaced with the instructions to “take it or leave it,” and “disregard it at your own peril.” He added that it’s now up to each American to act on the information themselves or suffer the consequences. “I’ve resigned myself to the fact that most [Americans] will never be convinced of the reality that is taking place right in front of them.”

The plan explained

“According to every internal document I’ve seen and read, and from the few people I’ve spoken with who understand what’s going on, preparations have been finalized to respond to a crisis of unprecedented magnitude within the United States. The response will include the use of lethal force against U.S. citizens under the instructions of Barack Obama.”  But why?

“‘It’s the economy, stupid,’” he began, paraphrasing a campaign slogan coined by James Carville for Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign.  “Just as I disclosed in our first meeting, the crisis will be rooted in an economic collapse. I told you last year, at a time when gold and silver were setting record highs, one specific indicator that time is very short. It is the final ‘smack down’ of the metals, gold and silver, that will presage the orchestrated economic collapse that is being planned by the bankers of Wall Street. Everybody needs to understand that this is a deliberate collapse of the U.S. economy with the oversight of the White House and the full knowledge of the Justice Department.  Everyone seems to be waiting for some big, history making event that will signal the start of the collapse. The fact is that the collapse has already started. It’s incremental, like a snowball rolling down a hill. It gets bigger and rolls faster. Well, this snowball is well on its way down the hill.”

“I don’t mean to sound repetitive, but I can’t stress this enough. Contrary to what you hear, we’re already in an economic collapse, except that most people haven’t a clue. The ‘big bang’ comes at the end, when people wake up one morning and can’t log in to their bank accounts, can’t use their ATM cards, and find out that their private pension funds and other assets have been confiscated,” he stated.

“I’ve seen documentation of multiple scenarios created outside of DHS. Different plans and back-up plans. Also, please understand that I deliberately used the word ‘created,’ as this is a completely manufactured event.  In the end it won’t be presented that way, which is extremely important for everyone to understand. What is coming will be blamed on some unforeseen event out of everyone’s control, that few saw coming or thought would actually happen. Then, another event will take place concurrent with this event, or immediately after it, to confuse and compound an already explosive situation.” I asked for specifics.

“As I said, there are several scenarios and I don’t know them all. I know one calls for a cyber-attack by an external threat, which will then be compounded by something far removed from everyone’s own radar. But it’s all a ruse, or a pretext. The threat is from within,” he stated. “Before people can regain their footing, a second event will be triggered.” Again, I asked for specifics.

“I’ve seen one operational plan that refers to the federal government’s response to a significant terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Information at these levels is compartmentalized. I don’t have specifics, just plans for the response. The response will be controls and restrictions on travel, business, and every aspect of our lives, especially gun ownership and speech that incites people against the government. I guess some people would call it Martial Law, and they would not be incorrect. But understand that this will be a process deployed in stages. How quickly of a process remains to be seen.”

The mechanics explained

As I said, people continue to look for something big to happen first, followed by a militaristic response by the federal government against U.S. citizens. Based on what I’ve seen, I don’t believe it will happen this way, although there is one unthinkable exception. That exception would involve a ‘decapitation’ of our leadership, but I’ve seen nothing even remotely suggestive of that. But I’ve heard and even read articles where that is mentioned. Frankly, though, that’s always been a threat. I suppose that if the leadership is deemed useless, or becomes a liability to the larger agenda in some manner,  it could happen. The precedent exists. Let’s pray that it’s not the case now.”

“I don’t think anyone except the initiated few know the precise series of events or the exact timing, just a general overview and an equally general time period. I think we’re in that period now, as DHS has their planned responses finalized. Also, the metals are important because it’s real money, not Ponzi fiat currency. The U.S. has no inventory of gold, so the prices are manipulated down to cause a sell-off of the physical assets. China is on a buying spree of gold, and other countries want their inventory back. The very people causing the prices to drop are the ones who are also buying the metals at fire sale prices. They will emerge extremely wealthy when the prices rise after the U.S. currency becomes wallpaper. A little research will identify who these people and organizations are.”

“I’d like to add a bit of perspective that might help explain the events as I described. Do you remember former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announcing that the Pentagon was unable to account for $2.3 trillion in the defense budget? That was on September 10, 2001, the day before the attacks of 9/11. Some suggest that 9/11 was orchestrated, in part to cover up the missing money, which is ludicrous. The result, however, was that suddenly the accounting issue took a back seat because of the attacks. The result will be the same. That’s a perfect example of the mechanics of what we are about to experience. It’s going to take years to sort out, and when it’s finally sorted out, the damage will have long been done.”

“Please note a few final things. The relationship that exists between DHS today and the executive branch is well beyond alarming. DHS and other organizations have become the private army of the Oval Office. The NSA, and I’ve got contacts there, is taking orders from the Oval Office. The IRS is under the virtual control of the Oval Office in a manner that would make Nixon cower. Even though all roads appear to lead to the Oval Office, they lead through the Oval Office. It’s not just Obama, but the men behind him, the people who put him there. The people who put him there are the ones who created him.” I asked who created him.

“First, ask yourself why there was such an all out effort to marginalize anyone talking about Obama’s eligibility in 2008. Even so-called conservatives pundits fell for the lie that such questions were nothing more than a diversion. They were following a specific drumbeat. That should tell every rational adult that he is a creation of the globalists who have no allegiance to any political party. He is the product of decades of planning, made for this very time in our history. He was selected to oversee the events I just disclosed. Who has that ability? He’s a product of our own intelligence agencies working with the globalists. He should be exhibit ‘A’ to illustrate the need to enforce the Logan Act. Need I say more?”

As often said by another of my sources, the U.S. is a captured operation. The lie is bigger than most people realize or are willing to confront. That is, until there is no other option. By then, it might be too late.

The Army’s 8-Wheeled Laser Truck Can Burn Mortars, Drones Right Out Of The Sky

Posted in Uncategorized on December 15, 2013 by betweentwopines

I don’t know what else can be added to define the excerpt below. I could say I thought destructive high energy weapons systems were so large they basically needed to be run from a ship. I could say I thought such systems were limited to use against relatively large, soft targets. But … I’d have been wrong.


The Army’s 8-Wheeled Laser Truck Can Burn Mortars, Drones Right Out Of The Sky By Amanda Macias, Business Insider, December 12, 2013

For the first time, the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defence Command used a vehicle mounted high-energy laser to successfully engage more than 90 enemy mortar rounds and flying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator (HEL MD) contracted by Boeing, was tested at White Sands Missile Range and confirms the capability of a mobile laser weapon system to counter rockets, artillery, mortars, UAVs, and reconnaissance sensors mounted on UAVs.

The beam control system (BCS) is a dome-shaped turret that extends above the roof of a 500-horsepower Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT). The beam director rotates 360-degrees and uses mirrors to point and focus the beam on a target.

“These tests were the first in which HEL MD repeatedly destroyed consecutive rounds of mortars and aerial threats with speed-of-light precision and a high degree of accuracy,” Mike Rinn, vice president, Boeing Directed Energy Systems. The recent testing utilized a 10 kW class laser which will be upgraded to an 100 kW class laser in subsequent demonstrations.

World's Largest Medicineless Hospital
By Luke Chan

Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Clinic & Training Center*, simply known as the Center, normally has more than four thousand people living there, including doctors, patients, ChiLel teachers, trainees, and supporting personnel. The Center was established in 1988 in the city of Zigachong and later, in 1992, relocated to the city of Qinhuangdao. In 1995, it again expanded to its present address, an old army hospital in the city of Fengrun, two hours by train from Beijing. It is directed by its founder, Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong grandmaster and physician trained in both Western and Chinese traditional medicine. This hospital is the largest of its kind in China and probably in the world. The Center avoids medicines and special diets in favor of exercise, love, and life energy. It is a non-profit organization and is recognized by the Chinese government as a legitimate clinic. Over the years, the Center has treated more than one hundred and eighty diseases, the overall success rate being more than 95%.

I spent the entire month of May living in the Center, observing first hand how the hospital operates and interviewing more than one hundred people who have miraculously recovered from incurable diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, severe depression, paralysis, and systemic lupus. Many times I was moved to tears while listening to these accounts of heroic struggle against disease. One mother told me that she was so weak that she couldn’t even pick up a kitchen knife to kill herself and so attempted to end her life by not eating. But when her six-year-old son tried to spoon feed her a bowl of milk while her eleven-year-old held a towel to wipe any spills, she decided to live at any cost. Since doctors couldn’t help her, she turned to ChiLel and, against all odds, recovered. She is now a teacher at the Center.

The Power of ChiLel
ChiLel, the method employed in the Center, was developed by Dr. Pang. The method is based on the 5,000-year-old concept of qigong (chigong, chi kung) as well as modern medical knowledge. Dr. Pang, reverently known as Lao-shi, the Teacher, has written more than nine books on ChiLel.

ChiLel consists of four parts…

  1. Strong belief (Shan Shin): a belief that chi or life energy, can heal all ailments, including one’s own. Students build belief by listening to testimonials of recovered patients and learning about chi and its healing effects.
  2. Group Healing (Chu Chong): before a group of students begins ChiLel, the teacher verbally synchronizes the thinking of the group to obtain chi from the universe and bring it down into a healing energy field, shrouding everyone including the teacher himself or herself. The healing effect is enhanced because the group is acting as one.
  3. Chi Healing (Fa Chi): Facilitating chi healing by teachers teachers bring healing energy from the universe to each individual to facilitate healing.
  4. Practice (Lan Gong): Students learn easy-to-follow ChiLel movements and practice them over and over again. The methods, parts of Zhineng qigong, are called:
  • Lift Chi Up and Pour Chi Down Method.
  • Three Centers Merge Standing Method.

Patient Treatment
When a patient enters the hospital, he is diagnosed by a doctor, and then assigned to a class of fifty or so people for a 24-day treatment period. He spends most of his time practicing ChiLel, eight hours a day without television, newspapers or telephone. Those who can stand up practice standing; those who can sit practice in their chairs; and those who can’t move practice in their beds. I was moved by the dedication of these students.

Despite its amazing success at healing, the Center is little known even in China because of its policy of not advertising in newspapers or magazines. However, the Center is well known among its estimated eight million ChiLel practitioners. Through word of mouth, thousands of people from all over China are coming to the Center every month. Indeed, ChiLel has a great number of followers and the Center is the brain of this vast organization. New techniques for treating diseases are developed daily.

For example, a new way of demonstrating the effectiveness of chi for treating cancer has been developed. I witnessed a cancer patient being treated by four ChiLel teachers while the patient’s bladder cancer was viewed on a screen via an ultra-sound machine, and monitored by two doctors. The cancer literally disappeared in front of my eyes in less than a minute as the teachers emitted chi into the patient, dissolving the cancer! In fact, I videotaped this incredible act. Ten days later, I requested the doctors to double check if the patient’s tumor was gone. Kindly enough the doctors put the same patient’s bladder again on screen and we saw no trace of cancer. Later I was told that a major German TV station crew, visiting the Center a week before, had successfully videotaped the same process with other cancer patients.

The Center has over six hundred staff members, including twenty-six Western-trained doctors. Since no medicine is prescribed, there aren’t any pharmacists. Doctors, who prefer to be called teachers, play only a minor role in this special hospital. Occasionally, they are called upon to attend emergency cases. Their main function is to diagnose patients when they come in to register and again after each 24-day training period.

Their diagnoses are classified into four categories for statistical purposes.

  1. Cured: Symptoms disappear and appropriate instruments ( e.g. EKG, ultra-sound, X-ray, CT and so on) register normal.
  2. Very Effective: Symptoms almost disappear and instruments show great improvement.
  3. Effective: Noticeable improvements, and student can eat, sleep, and feel good.
  4. Non-effective: No change or even worse.

According to “Summary of Zhineng Qigong’s Healing Effects on Chronic Diseases”, published by the Center in 1991, data of 7,936 patients showed an overall effective healing rate of 94.96%. (15.20% cured; 37.68% very effective; 42.09% effective.)

In the Center, no matter how sick a person is, he is still addressed as a “student” never “patient”. Why? Because he is learning an art the goal of which is to heal oneself, not to rely on doctors. Therefore no doctor-patient relationships exist.

Students are enrolled in a 24-days treatment program. The tuition fee is only one hundred yuan (about twelve dollars). Students can spend as little as six hundred yuan (about seventy dollars) per month! The Center is probably the most inexpensive hospital in the world and is truly a non-profit organization. Yet the Center is an independent, self-sufficient organization, without any help from government or private foundations.

How do they operate so efficiently? Because many of the doctors, ChiLel teachers, and supporting personnel are former students who have recovered from serious illnesses themselves and have now returned voluntarily to “serve the sick”, with very little pay. Teachers play the roles of doctor, nurse, social worker, cheerleader, parent, friend, brother, and sister. Their effectiveness is measured by the healing rate of their students.

Another reason for the Center’s effective but low-budget operation is that it uses group therapy. Students live in groups of four, eight or sixteen persons per room. By living in groups, students develop in a cooperative spirit of caring and love toward each other. Many of those I interviewed had been rejected by their former hospitals as “incurable,” and, therefore, had regarded the Center as their last hope. As though sailing on the same boat in the ocean, students bond together against their common enemy’s disease.

Trained to Heal
Just as hospitals associate with medical schools to train young people to enter into the medical profession, the Center also has ChiLel schools to train ChiLel professionals. There is a Zhineng Qigong Academy and one-month and three-month instructor training schools. The Academy, established in 1992, has a two-year training program for young men and women under the age of thirty who have the minimum of a high-school education. The one-month and three-months instructor-training programs are for anyone interested in ChiLel. I was told that there are typically more than a thousand students in both programs in school.

In addition, just as prestigious hospitals have research programs, the Center has many on-going research projects both on site and at different university campuses around the country. When I requested the person in charge, a retired college professor, to show me some published papers, he gave me two volumes of experiment data, as thick as a telephone book!

Besides doctors, teachers, and students, there are hundreds of supporting personnel, working in the office, cafeteria, bookstore, and so on. All of them are ChiLel practitioners and they practice ChiLel together in the morning and in the evening, about three hours a day. As they say, it is not just a job, it is a ChiLel job.

The Center is open only ten months a year because of lack of heating in the rooms during winter. The Center is currently building a home for itself, a “ChiLel City” in a place near Beijing, with better facilities to accommodate the ever-increasing number of students, including Americans and others coming from abroad.

I asked the founder, Lao-shi, why didn’t he promote ChiLel to the world sooner. He replied that many people need proof whether chi works or not. So instead of arguing with others, he preferred to work solidly by treating patients and collecting valuable data. As a result, tens of thousands of documented cases over a period of eight years have been collected and, “Now we are ready. Please tell the world that we exist and ChiLel can benefit mankind.”

* Due to political reasons, the Center was closed in 2001.

Dementia: Mad Cow Disease, Prions, Myositis and Fibromyalgia

Dementia is already pandemic – and so are a host of chronic diseases that involve inflammation. Fact is, inflammation attracts infectious prions. New research shows (again) that prions colonize muscle in subclinical prion disease, and myositis (muscle inflammation) leads to “enhanced” prion colonization of muscle. The disease process seems to involve a feedback loop. In fact, fibromyalgia often is defined as non-inflammatory, but likely involves chronic sub-clinical inflammation.

Myositis facilitates preclinical accumulation of pathological prion protein in muscle

… Our findings provide new insights into the pathophysiology of PrPSc pointing out that myositis leads to enhanced prion colonization of muscle in subclinical prion disease.

Dr. Oz: Fibromyalgia is a diagnosis based on a grouping of symptoms including fatigue and muscle pain. While the pain and inflammation are very real, this conventional medical diagnosis itself doesn’t help us understand what causes the problem.

Unfortunately, prion science was obstructed a while ago when a specific brain protein was (re)named “prion” (PrP). As a result, only those diseases involving pathological prion protein (PrPSc) in the brain were acknowledged to be prion diseases, diseases caused by prions travelling from the gut to the brain were officially ignored – and all the other prion-related diseases were brushed under the rug.

But focusing only on PrP, it happens that PrPSc (the infectious form) is not only found in the central nervous system, but also in lymphoid organs and muscle. In fact, prions use the immune system to spread through the body. That’s how brain prions infect muscle.

The take home message here? Deal with inflammation! True, acute inflammation is a healing thing – but chronic inflammation is not. Common signs are pain and low-grade fever or sweats. But forget the pain – your goal is to stop the inflammation.

Subclinical (silent, systemic, low-grade) inflammation is a form of chronic inflammation (and chances are you’re suffering with it now)

Researchers now recognize that chronic inflammation may be present in a low grade, asymptomatic form for many years before its effects manifest as overt disease. This asymptomatic form of chronic inflammation is often referred to as subclinical inflammation (also silent inflammation, subacute inflammation, low grade inflammation, or systemic inflammation.) Subclinical inflammation can only be detected by laboratory tests or biochemical assays that assess levels of various markers of inflammation such as c-reactive protein, rheumatoid factor, anti-nuclear antibodies, cytokines, or other components, modulators or products of inflammation.

Subclinical inflammation is increasingly recognized as the cause of, or a substantial contributor to, a wide range of ailments, such as for example atherosclerosis, osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes type 2, Alzheimer’s disease, some cancers, macular degeneration and a great many other ailments. Subclinical inflammation has been shown to increase disease risk, hasten disease onset and worsen disease prognosis. Subclinical inflammation is believed to increase the rate and severity with which signs and symptoms of aging appear.

Stopping Inflammation

Meds usually cause more problems than they fix, so use diet and lifestyle. Usually, the darker the fruit or vegetable, the more antioxidant and anti-inflammatory it will be. Use turmeric, eat blueberries, kale, squash, tomatoes, walnuts, cold water fish, dark chocolate, flax and chia seeds – drink green tea.

Specifics vary from diet to diet, but in general anti-inflammatory diets suggest:

Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Minimize saturated and trans fats.
Eat a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish or fish oil supplements and walnuts.
Watch your intake of refined carbohydrates such as pasta and white rice.
Eat plenty of whole grains such as brown rice and bulgur wheat.
Eat lean protein sources such as chicken; cut back on red meat and full-fat dairy foods.
Avoid refined foods and processed foods.
Spice it up. Ginger, curry, and other spices can have an anti-inflammatory effect.

Major Stock Market Crash In January

Posted in Finance on December 5, 2013 by betweentwopines

chart base: McClellan Financial Publications

Is there a major financial crash in our near future? You must check out this stunning analogy between the current day Dow Jones Industrial Index compared with the time period 1928-1929 leading up to the memorable stock market crash…

The pattern of stock price movements looks VERY close to the lead-up to the 1929 top.

A lead-up to just any old top is one thing, but the 1929 top was followed by a memorable decline, which makes it all the more worthy of our attention…

Is this a prediction?
No. No one can predict the market.

Is this worthy of attention?
Trends are indicators. Often a predictor of the future has been past behavior.
The base graphs of the chart above are sourced from Tom McClellan of McClellan Financial Publications who remarkably uncovered this fascinating pattern based on previous work done by technical analyst Tom DeMark.

One very interesting implication of this chart pattern analog is that it says that the equivalent of the Sep. 3, 1929 top is ideally due Jan. 14, 2014.

Having said that, no one should take that Jan. 14 date literally, according to McClellan, since the market tends to only approximate the 1929 pattern rather than repeating it precisely. In other words, expectations of precision are just not warranted.

However the patterns are VERY interesting in their similarities…

We, and countless other blogs and alternative news sites, have been alerting those who will listen… that the likeliest major disaster that we are currently facing, is an economic collapse.

Just take a look at some of our recent articles on the subject…

Please continue to prepare for this, because those who position themselves ahead of time will stand a better chance of surviving the collapse than others.

No one knows how long the FED and the global elites can drag this out, but this house of cards is very precarious; and with today’s inter-dependencies, derivatives, and other toxic plans being hatched behind the scenes, you need to open your eyes to what’s really happening…
