So many of us are walking around at the moment feeling stressed out of skulls. Now, received wisdom will tell us that we feel stress because of financial problems, work issues, relationship difficulties, Donald Trump, ISIS, Brexit - the list goes on and on.
And for sure, external circumstances can certainly raise our stress levels. But subliminal stress is something entirely different. Subliminal stress happens when there is nothing ‘consciously’ stressing us out, and yet out bodies are still going into a full-on stress response, and our sympathetic nervous system is so continually juiced-up and switched-on, that eventually it can lead to a total system collapse.
(Doesn’t that sound like fun!)
In previous posts, we’ve already established the connection between solar storms, electro-magnetic fields, and a whole bunch of physical and mental health issues. It’s clear that fluctuations in the earth’s electromagnetic field has an enormous impact on human health, but the whole discussion of electro-magnetically-induced subliminal stress takes thing up a whole other level.
First, let me tell you about an experiment that psychiatrist Howard Friedman did on a whole bunch of rabbits, more than 30 years’ ago. Friedman administered a steady magnetic field of between 100 - 200 gauss to rabbits, plus a group of controls, then autopsied them, and sent slides of their brain matter for analysis.
(Sorry for all the gory details here, to any more sensitive readers…)
All of the rabbits in both groups were found to have been infected by a brain parasite common in rabbits, but in the group that had been ‘zapped’ with the magnetic field the immune system had stopped working, enabling this parasite to destroy large swathes of rabbit brain cells.
Here’s Robert Becker writing in The Body Electric, explaining what happened next:
“Later, Friedman did biochemical tests on another series of rabbits and found that the [electromagnetic] fields were causing a generalized stress reaction marked by large amounts of cortisone in the bloodstream.”
After a peak reaction, it seemed like the animals stress response went back to normal, but later experiments confirmed that really, the subliminal stress had continued for so long in the body, it basically knocked-out the immune system, and prevented it from reacting to any other, or any more, stressors.
That made the animal much more susceptible to bacteria, parasites, illnesses and malignancies.
Let’s return to Becker to find out why this dramatic reaction to very weak electromagnetic fields is called subliminal stress:
“When undergoing these hormonal changes, an animal would normally be aware that its body was under attack, yet…the rabbits were not. They showed no outward signs of fear, agitation or illness.”
Why not? Because the electromagnetic fields they were subject to were vibrating in the Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) range, which increased levels of the neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which in turn activated a subliminal stress response that the creature wasn’t aware of.
Now, here’s the thing: nearly every human being on the planet is now subject to the same ELF fields that triggered that subliminal stress response in rabbits, monkeys and rats (amongst other creatures experimented on).
Last I checked, rats and rabbits aren't worrying about their finances, or worried about ISIS, Brexit or Donald Trump...
So there are two main reasons (physically speaking) why so many of us are walking around today stressed out of skulls, with weak immune systems, and a whole bunch of other health issues:
1) God is changing the electro-magnetic ‘vibe’ of the planet, via solar storms, solar flares and other things that may be disturbing the electro-magnetic balance of the universe.
2) Humans are plugging into all sorts of devices that emit electromagnetic fields in this ‘sensitive’ ELF range, with the biggest culprits (in the personal sphere) being computers and i-Phones.
Scary isn’t it!
But take heart: if biology was all there was to these issues, we probably would have all snuffed it two weeks after the first i-Phone came out. Human health is complex, complicated, and subject to many different factors, most importantly of all the spiritual dimension and our connection to God.
If we have a strong connection to God, our bodies and minds can take much more of a ‘beating’ biologically speaking, and still come through OK.
In the next post, we’ll explore these ‘electromagnetic’ effects on human health in a bit more detail, before moving on to a broad discussion of how we can stay healthy and sane, in the midst of all the electrical craziness currently going on around us
One of the key things to look for with solar activity, is the 11-year solar cycle, which usually ends with a bunch of dramatic things like mass ejections of the sun's corona, solar flares, heatwaves - and huge increases in mortalities, heart attacks and severe episodes of mental illness.
A Washington Times article from a couple of years' back noted that the Russian Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems (INEP), had found that:
“From 1949-1997…. geomagnetic activity showed three seasonal peaks each of those years (March to May, in July, and in October). Every peak matched an increased incidence of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and suicide in the city Kirovsk.”
According to this article on disinfo.com: More on Solar Storms and Major Mental Illness
Many studies have theorized on the relationship between increased solar activity and it’s effect on melatonin production in the pineal gland of the brain. Melatonin is essential in maintaining circadian rhythm – the 24-hour sleep-wake cycle that is essential to our well-being.
HELIOBIOLOGY AND RUSSIANS
The Russian medical community has been far ahead of the West in exploring the more holistic side to human health. Heliobiology, the study of the sun's impact on human health, was begun in Russia more than a hundred years ago. The following excerpt comes from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979):
The following excerpt comes from a paper called: Are stress responses to geomagnetic storms mediated by the cryptochrome compass system' by scientist James Close, which you can read for yourself HERE.
(e) Geomagnetic storms and human health
TO SUM THINGS UP:
There is already a huge body of research, most of which has been completely ignored by narrow-minded Western medicine, that shows that solar flares, solar storms, and the 11 year solar cycle have a massive impact on human health.
When there is a lot of solar activity, 5% more people die a year, 36% more people are admitted to hospital because of serious depression, there are more flu pandemics, more e-coli outbreaks, the number of people having heart-attacks go up (myocardial infarctions are another name for heart-attacks), the number of people having strokes go up, the number of people feeling completely and utterly stressed out of the skulls go up - and it's all linked to how we, as electric people, interact with the the increased solar energy being shot down at planet earth.
In turn, when people feel more stressed out / anxious / depressed / ill etc - they start thinking and acting in crazy ways. Wars start, arguments begin...
So now we're starting to figure out the connections a little more between solar / geomagnetic activity and human health and behaviour, what can we actually DO about it?
I hope to start answering that in the next posts.
The pineal gland is a very small gland in the centre of the cranium that produces both melatonin and serotonin. These two neurohormones have a profound affect on so many of the human body’s biological functions, including directly controlling all the biocycles. (The pineal gland is often associated with the ‘third eye’.)
Research shows that the pineal gland is strongly influenced by very small magnetic fields.
Even applying a tiny magnetic field of less than half a gauss has been shown by many different researchers to increase or decrease the amounts of melatonin and serotonin being produced by the pineal gland.
With all the hype about a lack of serotonin being at the root of clinical depression, and an imbalance in melatonin being linked to other mental disorders, it seems that electromagnetism may actually hold some of the solution to both of these issues.
How? Read on!
Other researchers have noted that the pineal gland’s cells actually change, physically, in response to a varying magnetic field. In another poorly understood twist, research has also discovered that shining a light on the head somehow modifies the amount of hormone the pineal gland produces - even though the gland is buried so deeply inside the brain, it can’t be directly reacting to this light.
(Which could this also hold the key to understanding - and finally resolving - Seasonal Affective Disorder….)
This next bit is a little crazy, but human beings actually have ‘mini magnets’ in our brains, which is another one of the reasons why we’re so affected by electro-magnetic forces.
MAGNETITE IN THE BRAIN
Experiments began in the 1970s which started to prove the ‘magnetic sense’ of human beings, and other living creatures, right down to even the most apparently simple bacteria.
In 1975, researcher Richard Blakemore found that even certain bacterium had a pronounced ‘magnetic sense’, that resulted from a chain of tiny magnetite microcrystals. Building on Blakemore’s work, researchers Charles Walcott and Robert Green of State University in New York started looking for magnetite deposits in the brains of homing pigeons - and found them on the right side of the bird’s head, between the brain and the skull.
Eight years’ later, a researcher working at the University of Manchester, Robin Baker, reported that he’d found magnetic deposits in the human brain, located close to both the pineal and pituitary glands, in the sinuses of the ethmoid bone. The ethmoid bone is a spongy bone located in the centre of the head, behind the nose and between the eyes.
Bob Becker postulated that this magnetic sense in the ethmoid bone was responsible for transmitting the ‘cues’ from the earth’s electromagnetic field to the human pineal gland responsible for maintaining the body’s circadian rhythm and biocycles.
Big changes in the the earth’s electromagnetic field could severely throw-out a human being’s biocycles - with enormous consequences for their mental and physical health. Becker’s theory was ratified a couple of decades later, by Russian scientists.
SOLAR FLARES AND CRAZY TIMES
In December 2008, New Scientist Magazine published a study by Russian researcher Oleg Shumilov which suggested there’s a direct connection between the Sun’s solar storms, and biological effects in human.
“Many animals can sense the Earth’s magnetic field, so why not people, asks Oleg Shumilov of the Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems in Russia.
The article in New Scientist continued:
“The most plausible explanation for the association between geomagnetic activity and depression and suicide is that geomagnetic storms can desynchronize circadian rhythms and melatonin production,” says Kelly Posner, a psychiatrist at Columbia University in the US. The pineal gland, which regulates circadian rhythm and melatonin production, is sensitive to magnetic fields. “The circadian regulatory system depends upon repeated environmental cues to [synchronize] internal clocks,” says Posner. “Magnetic fields may be one of these environmental cues.”
In the next post, we’ll start to see if we can map any major changes in the ‘solar weather’ over the last five years, with any major changes in the human condition, both on the personal and international levels.
That’s a post you really won’t want to miss, as it makes for some really fascinating reading… See you then.
Today’s science, particularly medical science, effectively ignores and misses the ‘electro-magnetic’ dimension to human health because they study dead cells and inanimate material in laboratory conditions.
When a cell is in a living body, it has electrical properties, and is effected by electro-magnetic forces, that simply can’t be replicated in a fertilization dish. When there is an electric field being produced, there is also a magnetic field being produced, and this electromagnetic force is constantly changing, and producing different affects on the cells and processes within a living body.
Again, this is BIO-PHYSICS, as opposed to the current approach of BIO-CHEMISTRY, and it has enormous repercussions for how human health should be viewed and treated.
Even when those rare medical researchers do appear who are willing to challenge the accepted norms of modern medicine in their quest for real answers, their work still goes ignored and challenged by the mainstream medical community.
One such doctor is Dr Ray Makela, who has been producing a wide body of research into the bio-physical nature of human health for decades, already. Some of Dr Makela’s major findings include:
This is a lot to take in, isn’t it!
Over the next few posts, I will BH bring more of the research to show how solar flares, environmental factors, stress and negative emotions are all linked together, electro-magnetically, and affecting every aspect of our mental and physical health.
The take home message from this post is this:
The body is bio-electric. Cells are profoundly shaped by electro-magnetic forces, and the way those electro-magnetic forces play out in the body’s cells is the basic cause of all physical and mental illnesses, including heart disease, strokes, cancer and depression.
A key way of reducing the negative aspects of the body’s electro-magnetic activity is by talking to God on a regular basis.
