The Magic, Mystery & Science of Water | Isabel Friend {Podcast #042)

You may think water is a simple molecule, such a basic element, but the truth is, Water is NOT simple. At all.

Water is actually profoundly complex and mysterious.

We know very little about water. It behaves anonymously, unlike anything in the universe. And its functions completely baffles scientists.

We are made of water. We are 99.92% water molecularly.

We need a strategy to optimise our water!

Post  Fukushima and mid-fracking. The water that most of the population are drinking, showering in and made up of is very low in quality. Stripped of it’s nature, structure and life-force.

We are literally bodies water living on a body of water. You better get to know yourself.

About Isabel Friend

Isabel Friend has a borderline obsessive fascination with water.

She teaches full time about water and facilitates ceremonies and host retreats about water all around the world.

She’s a public speaker, certified nutritionist, Mystic dance and Integral yoga teacher and Reiki master with a passion for understanding the power of earth-based living and 5 element integration.

She has also trained extensively in aromatherapy and herbalism.

She is a nerd who is passionate about bringing modern scientific understanding together with ancient ancestral wisdom in a way that grounds primal living strategies into our 21st century lifestyles.


In this Episode we Discuss:

Water is Profoundly Mysterious to Modern Science

  • The science of water completely baffles scientists because it is profoundly mysterious to modern science.
  • How water holds the answer to life’s mysteries.

64 Anomalies of Water

Water can push through hard surfaces like concrete.

Water floats as it becomes more dense.

Unlike any substance. Usually when a substance becomes more dense, it sinks!

Quantum Coherence Anomaly

Water molecules under extreme physical pressure  can arrange themselves into super small hexagonal states around a ring and enter into a Quantum tunnelling state - It can pass through SOLID walls - bilocate, trilocate but also sextolocate - the same water molecule can occupy more than 6 locations at once! Simultaneously present in multiple spaces.

This is similar to what is in the vedas are Siddhis (divine superhuman capabilities).

Water has the ability to communicate with water all around the world.

How we lack the full spectrum of elemental nourishment

All the 5 Elements (PanchaMahabhutas: Space, Air, Fire, Water, Earth) are in Water.

The Water Element is Feminine

Water is the sacred communion of masculine and famine - Hydrogen and Oxygen.

The Fourth Phase of Water

  • The water that has a highly structured matrix of hexagonal clusters of water molecules.
  • Bulk water that is in formation, thus stores information.
  • Drinking, eating and absorbing fourth phase water shifts experience of hydration and therefor of being human altogether.
  • The crystalline state of water - it acts like a crystal.

Crystal

If it’s in a formation, they can store information.

Functions of a crystal - Absorb, Store, Eat, Amplify and Transduce.

Cosmic Phases of Water

Water inside star nurseries that give birth to stars and inside stars themselves.

Why it is so important to consume structured water

  • Influences the way our body generates energy (ATP).
  • Structured water allows more effective communication between our cells.
  • Longevity and DNA health - It determines the shape, the integrity and the electro-magnetic field of the DNA and the tele mores in the DNA.

Dr. Alexis Carrel

A a French surgeon and biologist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1912 for pioneering vascular suturing techniques.

He showed the cell itself is immortal. It can live as long as it’s extra-cellular environment is optimal.

The Fifth Phase of Water

Ageing is Essentially the Body Drying Up

Is your body optimally retaining water?

You are not going to get hydrated and lubricated by drinking more water, it has to be a structured so that it going into the cells.

The Importance of Lubrication

High quality lipids and fats to maintain the cellular membranes and fluids so that out body can absorb specific beneficial kinds of hydrogen and water.

3 Kinds of Hydrogens

  1. Tritium - or hydrogen-3 is a rare and radioactive isotope of hydrogen
  2. Protium
  3. Deuterium - a heavier hydrogen. Double the mass of regular (Protium) hydrogen. If our channels our inadequately lubricated, we get sluggish etc.

The Importance of Proper Hydration for Mental Health

Only 20% of our brain function is neuro-chemical and 80% electrical. What is the electrical capacity of your osmotic flow? That is what influences mental health. And that as is influenced by proper hydration.

Phase Angle as form the measure electrical capacity of osmotic flow and hydration.

Dr. Van Annroy - A neurologist and psychologist who addresses hydration first. Even in cases as severe as bipolar disorder.

Cancer can be traced back to intra-cellular hydration.

Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 Oils

The First Signs of Dehydration

  • Brain fog
  • Sleepiness
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • General irritability

Thirst is one of the last signals that you are hydration.

Fascia

A layer which covers and surrounds blood vessels, muscles and nerves.

  • Around 80% water. The other 20% is proteins and collagen.
  • Your fascia water is high structured. It is a breathing, moving web of structured gel.
  • One of your body’s main hydraulic pumps, the way your body delivers hydration to eery cell, and it delivers electrical signals faster than the nerves at the speed of light! (700 miles/hour).
  • Healthy fascia is essential to transport hydration.

The Epidemic of Chronic Dehydration

Within 5 minutes of drinking water, it becomes your blood

How to Structure (Thus Optimise) Your Water

  • Think how nature does it, then mimic nature.

Spring Water - Harvesting your own or getting it delivered

  • Go to a spring and harvest your own spring water. (See Resources below how to find a spring near you).
  • Ask the elders where a nearby spring is if you cannot find one.
  • So alive, energised and structured that makes you feel energised.

You can replace your entire body value water after drinking 5 gallons or drinking water for one month.

Hot Springs

  • Mineral dense hard water.
  • Good occasionally and medicinally.

Balneology

The practice of partaking of the waters. Water therapy.

Traditional hot spring spas for therapeutic use.

Filtering & Structuring Your Tap Water

To clear out toxins, neutralise chlorine, giving it prana.

Ways to Structure Water

  • Movement - especially vortex methods.
  • Near infrared radiation.
  • Magnetic.
  • The present of hydrophilic (water loving) surfaces like crystals.

How to Power a City’s Entire Electrical Grid from It’s Plumbing Alone

Spiralled copper pipes.

“Get a Filter, or Become the Filter”
~ Commonsense Proverb

BPA Free Plastic

BPA Free plastic has more Oestrogenic Agents than plastic with BPAs.

Reverse Osmosis

Dead water.

Alkaline Water

  • What makes the water alkaline? Does it have ionic minerals or has it been electrocuted by an ioniser machine to separate the hydrogen.
  • Drinking alkaline water long term hampers the digestion and causes excess detoxification of good tissues.
  • Testing the body’s pH level.

We Are Still Aquatic Beings

As a foetus, we had gills.

“We carry oceans within our selves in order to be able to adapt to walk on land.”
~ Isabel Friend

Marine Plasma

  • The primordial soup. An oceanic broth of everything necessary to sustain life that contains the entire periodic table of elements, DNA, RNA, fatty acids, the entire spectrum of genetic information going back to the primordial soup.
  • Marine life swims thousands of miles every year to get to this in the sea.
  • Found in a few different vortexes in the ocean.

The Origin of Water

Thermo-Haline Circulation

The oxygen we breathe is coming from the depths of the ocean.

All the elements are born from water.

Further benefits of Structured Water

  • You need 20-50% less water when using structured water in agriculture - less pesticides, healthier minerals in soil, healthier plants.
  • Food can be grown anywhere - we can put an end to world hunger.
  • Renewable energy - if the pipes to transfer water were switched to pipes implemented with vortex technology to make it spiral - it could generate renewable and sustainable energy. You can get pipes like this from AliveWater.com

Considerations and Care for Cancer

Below are a few considerations for those on the journey to helping heal cancer.

1. Slow Down, Cancer Is Mostly Not An Emergency

  1. Firstly, in most cases, cancer is not an emergency. Although diagnostics and specialists may urgently rush you into treatment, the truth is, the cancer has probably been in your physiology for quite some time before the diagnosis.STOP. Ground yourself. Establish yourself. Explore avenues of how to treat your unique self. Seek various specialists and health practitioners. Don’t rush into any treatment. Don’t delay, but take action efficiently and gracefully. Inappropriate medical treatment is a worldwide crisis.

Related Listening:

The prestigious John Hopkins Hospital conducted a study investigating what percentage of medical care is unnecessary.

21% was the average!

They asked a random group of physicians who broke it down in medications, diagnostic tests, surgeries and procedures.

When you have people in the industry saying that one fifth of all the services are unnecessary, that is a crisis!

Learn more about the crisis of Medical Appropriateness

Questions to Ask Your Oncologist About Chemotherapy

Ask these questions in your initial consultations as well as when they say "we are getting really good results/sponsors for this drug or suggest a treatment."

  1. What are the chances this will cure me. - not make me feel better, not make the tumour shrink for a little while, not make me live 6 months longer.
  2. What is the known death rate for chemotherapy used. - 1-2% - 10-15% are dying from the treatment.
  3. Would you give this therapy to your family or take your self.

2. Pleasant and Blissful Mind, Senses and Consciosuness

Reduce stress. Remove fear. Remind your body it is safe. You have infinite potential to heal. Your body is miraculously capable. Directly experience your Pure Absolute Self which is free from disease on a regular basis to give your body a “free zone” and reinforce the memory of That in your cells.

This is known as "Smriti"

3. Team of Health Practitioners

Work with a multitude of health practitioners. From oncologists to natural health practitioners to whatever healer  you resonate with. All working as a Team for your wellness.

4. Drop the War Mentality

A cancer cell is the loneliest cell in the body. It doesn’t know if it is part of your organism anymore. It literally feels like the last man alive. So it has to reproduce. Fast.

When you recognise and appreciate the cancer cell, then it says “wow, let me drop the over-ambitious drive, let a stem cell replace me.” The tumour goes into apoptosis (programmed cell-suicide).

“I don’t need to have this drive for life, the organism has a drive for life now. I can now be in harmony with the biology. This is truely what I wanted.”

5. Most cancers are a metabolic disease

One of the best ways to activate autophagy and apoptosis is fasting. There is a multitude of ways to fast (langhana), and I recommend you work with a quality health practitioner to assist with fasting and diet for your unique self.

6. Precious and Potent Ayurvedic Herbs

Precious and Potent Ayurvedic Herbs are wise to boost the healing process.

They help restore the memory of perfect health (smriti), reduce tumour growths and metastasis, trigger your body’s healing mechanisms and optimise metabolic and immune health.

Panchakarma is also wise in most cases.

Is Your Morning Shower Toxic for Your Health?

Hot water opens the skins pores and allows the volatile toxic compounds that are abundant in tap water to be absorbed through the skin and lungs.

Lungs - there is plenty of space. Thus, it is a common place for ama (toxins and undigested food materials) to deposit and lodge.

The skin - the largest organ of the body with a large surface area where these toxins can directly enter the bloodstream without being processed by the liver.

This is why in Ayurveda, herbs are trans-dermally administered via medicated oils, pastes (lepams) etc. - to bypass the liver and effectively deliver medicine deep into the tissues.

You are now using organic cosmetics, soaps, shampoos etc., Great! but you are still flooding yourself with toxins that absorb into the blood and reap havoc throughout the body.

Chlorine and disinfection by products in your tap water irritate the mucous membranes, disrupt the skins microbial balance, clog the skins pores, strip the natural oils from your hair and create dry, itchy skin.

These volatile toxins also damage the structure of your home, imagine what they can do to your body!

The best way to prevent volatile compounds entering your blood stream during bathing is to install a whole home water filtration system.

Luckily my friend and genius, Dr Marc, has developed one of the best whole home water filtration + re-structuring systems on the planet.

You deserve the best. A whole home system can protect your family from harmful toxins and provide you with the life-force, prana filled water you deserve.

THE WORLDS BEST WATER FILTER & RE-STRUCTURING UNIT


Why It’s Far More Important to Filter Bathing Water than Drinking Water

Many people use a filter for their drinking water, yet don’t realise it’s far more important to filter their bathing water.

Here are The 10 top reasons why it’s more important to filter your shower and bath water, than your drinking water:

1) You’re exposed to a much greater volume of water and hence toxic chemical load through bathing than drinking.

2) Bathing in heated water leads to out-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and toxic disinfectant by-products which are inhaled.

3) Hot water opens pores and allows volatile compounds to be absorbed through the large surface area of the skin and lungs.

4) Toxic compounds absorbed through the lungs and skin enter directly into the bloodstream without being processed by the liver.

5) Toxic compounds irritate the mucous membranes of your eyes, nose, mouth, respiratory tract and vagina (if you have one).

6) Toxic compounds reduce the skin's water-holding capacity, aggravate eczema, dandruff and atopic dermatitis, and contribute to dry, itchy skin.

7) Toxic compounds in bathing water disrupt your skin’s microbial balance which makes it harder to keep your skin healthy.

8) Toxins in your bathing water strip the natural oils from your hair and accelerate hair loss while making hair dry, brittle and less manageable.

9) Minerals in hard water prevent soap fully lathering, this leaves soapy film clogging your pores and coating your hair.

10) Toxic compounds released into the air by hot showers and baths spread throughout the house causing damage and erosion.

But it's not all bad news...

Here's 3 things you can do today to avoid more toxicity from your shower and bath.

a) You can try to reduce your toxic exposure by taking shorter or less frequent showers, having colder showers, shutting the water off while soaping up and ensuring you use an exhaust fan and have adequate ventilation during bathing.

b) You can also fill a bath with very hot water and leave it to cool down and then bathe after the toxic gases have evaporated (be sure to use an exhaust fan).

c) The very best way to reduce your toxic exposure from bathing (and drinking) water is to use a whole house filtration system that works with both HOT and cold water.

Here's 3 things you can do today to avoid more toxicity from your shower and bath.

The Problem:

Many water filtration systems on the market are expensive, low quality, unscientific and not all of them work in both hot and cold water.

The Solution:

My friend, Dr Marc has been researching wellness and integrative medicine and for more than 30 years and this has led him to become a world expert on water.

A New Integration:

After many years searching for the world’s best water filter, Dr Marc has integrated the best water filtration technology and equipment to produce the Extreme Wellness Water Filter System.

This system removes all chlorine, pesticides, heavy metals, parasites, bacteria, sediment, viruses, microbes and toxic chemicals. These filters are so powerful they have even been tested to remove radio-active waste!

And best of all, the micro-pore technology allows for extremely rapid flow filters and use with both hot and cold water, meaning you can filter water for your shower, bath, dishwasher and washing machine all at once without any interruption in flow.

Rigorously tested, backed and approved by some of the world’s leading epidemiology, radioactivity labs and toxicology organisations (including the Louis Pasteur Institute) this system has my full approval.

As you know, I only ever endorse the highest quality products for my community and these get my full approval.

If you’re looking to up-level the wellbeing of yourself and your family, I firmly believe a whole house system is the best way to go.  You deserve the best.

Enemas, Bastis & Colonics: Think Twice Before Sticking Anything Up Your Bum

This article to get you thinking twice about enemas and anything you consider sticking up your pelvic floor’s larger orifice, whether it’s water, oil, salt water, coffee or a herbal decoction.

Note, enemas are one of the five most powerful therapies in Ayurveda (Panchakarma), and Ayurveda has significantly extensive knowledge and experience in this medical intervention. 

A few things to be aware of:

1. Unctuousness

In Ayurveda, there are thousands of enemas, (called Bastis) made up of various formulas. Not one of them are without the unctuousness quality, (a “friendly” type “oily” quality, called snigdha in Ayurveda). 

Water irrigation colonics, decoction enemas (including Ayurvedic herbal decoctions) and coffee enemas without any oil and procured without specific preparation processes will have a scarping action (langhana) inside the gut. This can damage the internal tissues and eliminate the healthy tissue (improper catabolism).

2. Honour Your Nervous System

Enemas are not only for the gut! As a matter of fact, the primary use of enemas are for your nervous system! Your navel is home to the Enteric Nervous System (the largest nerve plexus in the body) where all your nerve plexuses end in. This is why Ayurvedic bastis are powerful to nourish, (not detox), the nervous system, emotions, the mind and help in psychiatric disorders, auto-immune disorders, severe genetic conditions and dry nervous disorders like Parkinson’s and dementia.

Most bastis are small amounts of medicated oil (20ml-60ml) to be held in and absorbed into the gut, and not eliminated. They stay there to nourish your rich gut flora and can even penetrate every cell in your body if you use a precious basti oil. Contact Vital Veda to order matra basti oil. Orders via email only.

3. Coffee Enemas

Since your enteric system is the main organism getting flooded with the intra-rectal fluid of your choice, think twice before you pour your morning cappuccino up your bum.

Coffee enemas are definitely not suited to the majority of people and can act as a dehydrating gastro-intestinal irritant. 

4. Not All Oils are Equal

Those who know Ayurveda, know it holds profound knowledge on oils.

There are many methods of preparing the oils, and there is a specific one that is ideal for bastis - which is a “soft preparation method” (“mrdu paka”) to be gentle on the gut. Other oils may have some ama (toxins) as they are not purified properly and this enters into vulnerable organs since bastis bypass the liver.

5. Holistic Treatment Approach

As with all purification procedures, consider pre treatment and post treatment. We can learn from Ayurveda’s premier cleansing therapy called Panchakarma,” in that it has a “Purva Karma” (pre-action) and a “Pasjart Karma” (post-karma) with all cleansing therapies. Also your agni (digestive fire) has to be in a precise state before doing cleansing enemas. For this you need an experienced physician.

Have you had an enema before? What is your experience? Comment below.

Vital Veda Enema (Basti) Oil

We use a precious, fine basti oil and supply the kit and instructions.
This oil is prepared by the Raju family in a complex procedure.

EMF, 5G & Building Biology | Nicole Bijlsma {Podcast #019}

Building Biology: How the Human Environment Affects Human Health.

We take care of our biology and our human skin.
But what about the skin that we reside in, that we live, work and sleep in!
The skin of a building that most of us spend 20+ hours a day in!

*Note there is a silent audio fault gap between 31:05 and 32:44. Then the podcast continues.*

About Nicole Bijlsma

Healthy Home Expert, Nicole Bijlsma is a building biologist, bestselling author, PhD candidate and CEO of the Australian College of Environmental Studies (RTO 21740) which she established in 1999 to educate people about the health hazards in the built environment. Nicole has published in peer-reviewed journals, has written extensively for Body+Soul newspaper, is regularly consulted by the media to discuss electromagnetic fields and toxic chemicals, and lectures in Australia and internationally at medical conferences about environmental health issues. Nicole and her husband Mark manufacture the Abode® cleaning product range (health food store brand) which was developed for people with skin and chemical sensitivities.


In This Episode We Discuss

Building biology - how the human environment affects human health.

Nicole’s story - 10 miscarriages and insomnia due to sleeping next to a smart meter.

The bedroom as the most important room we address when accessing the biology of a building.

EMF and Blue light suppress melatonin, it tricks you're body thinking its day when its night.

What proper sleep actually means.

The importance of paying attention to home appliances, like a solar panel inverter.

Solar Panels & EMF

Improper set up of solar panels emits very high AC electric field and leaks dirty electricity. 

Safe set up of solar panels - round shielded cabling which includes both active and neutral wire together. Have metal foil within the shielded cabling and earthing it properly. 

4 types of EMF:

  1. AC Electric Fields - created from voltage, electricity under pressure.
  2. AC Magnetic Fields - created from the current. Movement of electrons from building wiring and appliances.
  3. Radio Frequencies - wireless devices.
  4. Dirty electricity - high-frequency spikes.

Metal as an antenna to EMF, e.g. metal titanium in your body, surgical steel wires, metal in the mouth, 

Mass Experiment

We have never exposed humanity from cradle to the grave to this amount of radiation. 

In the last three decades, we have significantly increased our exposure to man-made EMF one trillion times higher than when our grandparents were children. And that’s before 5G network has been turned on. What is about to happen has never been seen before.
Nicole Bijlsma

5G

  • Nicole believes may not work because to many trees will have to be cut down since trees block the short-wave signals.
  • Instantly kills insects.
  • Not about public health, it’s about dividends for shareholders of the telecommunication industry. 
  • 5th Generation for the fourth industrial revolution to support artificial intelligence.

Biological Effects of EMF

  • In 2011, the WHO classified radio frequencies from all wireless devices (induing cellphones) as group 2B carcinogen (potentially can cause cancer).
  • In 2002 the WHO classified magnetic fields from anything that draws current as group 2B carcinogen.
  • Sweat ducts in your skin act as an antenna to EMF and impacts the nervous system.
  • Fatigue, waking up tired.
  • Headaches.
  • Increased risk of fibromyalgia. 
  • Increases dyslexia, missing words.

These signals (EMF) communicate with our mitochondria and cause mitochondria dysfunction. It is a mitochondrial poison.

EMF Pathology

EMF starts calcium influx which activates the sympathetic nervous system (“Flight or Fight”) and destroys mitochondria function. Studies show even low-level EMF causes this. You don’t need to have an argument with your family to get stressed, EMF will do it to you!

EMF causes calcium e-flux which causes mitochondrial swelling.

Adrenal stress index is thrashed.

Cell phones 12 feet away activates the sympathetic nervous system.

Near exposure - 52cm from a 2.4 Ghz source.

Calcium Influx

  • EMFs activate voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) - in the outer membrane that surround all our cells.
  • When they are activated they open up, allow excess calcium to flow into the cell.
  • There are hundreds of studies that show when you expose cells to EMFs there is increased intra-cellular calcium and increased calcium signalling.
  • This causes molecular biological trauma.
  • When there's excess calcium in the cell, it increases levels of both nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide. While NO has many beneficial health effects, massively excessive amounts of it reacts with superoxide, forming peroxynitrite, which is an extremely potent oxidant stressor.
  • Peroxynitrites, in turn, break down to form excessive reactive free radicals, which does damage.

EMF radiation activates the VGCCs in the outer cell membrane, triggering a chain reaction of devastating events that, ultimately:

  • Decimates your mitochondrial function (causes them to swell), cell membranes and cellular proteins.
  • Causes severe cellular damage.
  • Results in DNA breaks.
  • Dramatically accelerates your ageing process. Ageing = oxidative stresses and inflammation.
  • Puts you at higher risk for chronic disease. Chronic diseases = stresses and inflammation.

VGCCs Highest Concentrated in the Body

Nervous System and Brain

  • VGCCs - highest density is located in the nervous system.
  • A study showed the nervous system and brain was the #1 organ most sensitive to EMF. Massive changes in the structure of the neurons, dysfunction of synapses.
  • Consequences: anxiety and depression, alzheimer’s and autism.

Heart:

  • The heart is also sensitive. The pacemaker cells
  • Consequences: Tachycardia, heart palpitations (PAC or PVC), cardiac arrhythmia, arterial fibrillation.

Reproduction:

  • They have important locations in reproduction - in both testicles (studies a lot) and ovaries.
  • Evidence showed male and female infertility. 
  • Reduce sperm count 2x more in western countries than eastern.
  • Phone in pockets, laptops on laps are zapping genitals.

Suppress Melatonin

EMF and blue light suppress melatonin -  the most anti-cancer neurotransmitter and powerful anti-oxidant you have! 

Enhances Permeability of the BBB and Tight Junctions

BBB (Blood Brain Barrier)
Tight Junction (barrier in the cell junction).

Using a cellphone close to your head for at least 30mins / day for 10 years increases your incidence for brain tumor by 270%.

Takes 15-20 years to develop! Accumulative effect.

Our exposure to mould, chemicals, prevalent and inevitable toxins are increased as we become more vulnerable.

This is why EMF sensitivity is identical to chemical sensitivity and mould illnesses.

Add in the fact that we are “pre-polluted” - biotoxins and chemicals are granted free entry into the CNS.

In 2004, researches found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord from babies born in US hospitals. ~ WWF 2005, Canada.

What was meant to be cord-blood rich in immune-boosting stem cells, contained pesticides, consumer product ingredients and waste from burning coal, gasoline and garbage.

Alzheimers (Neuro-degenerative disease)

Alley Yohansen - key editor of the journal of patho-phyioslogy. Kawolonksher institute.

A Swedish study in 2005 looked at different villages in parts of Sweden where they looked at homes which have high radiation and looked at homes with low radiation.

Matched a map of these with a map of Alzheimers disease and found an absolute direct correlation.

Half of the population alive right now will die with Alzheimers disease.

Alhoansen said in 2006 if we don’t change our environment there will be an epidemic of brain-related disorders. And they have. It is only going to increase dramatically if people don’t protect themselves. 

ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)

Motor neurone disease.
ALS patients die within 2 years of diagnose. Now on par with MS.

Latency Periods and Accumulative Effect of Toxins 

Chemical and EMF sensitivity as a biomarker, warning and blessing to move away from that poison before it causes chronic disease.

Exposing to EMF for more than 2 hours a day for 5-10 years causes the biological effects.

The latest mobile nation report in Australia 2019 showed the average Australian spends 3 hours a day on electronic devices. 

The chemical abstract service - the worlds largest data base. 

Over 145 million chemicals are registered for use, 90% have never been tested for human health.

Near Fields of EMF:

4 wavelengths away form the source. Thus depends on the source.

50cm away from a 2.4GhZ router. 

Double your distance away form the source and you reduce your exposure from 70%. 

How to Reduce EMF

  • Don’t put your cellphone next to your head, “keep it away from your person” as the telecommunication industries specify in their product instructions.
  • Use an air tube headpiece. 
  • Use loudspeaker.
  • Text instead of talking.
  • Only use in a good reception and when bars are full.
  • Turn Bluetooth and data OFF when you are not using it.
  • Use aeroplane mode more often.
  • Get rid of any wireless, bluetooth earphones like Apple AirPods.
  • Revolutionise and switch your wifi for ethernet (cable plug in).
  • Power down your wifi router.
  • Switch off your wifi router at the power at night when you are not using it.
  • Abhyanga to create a shield of armour. 

The microwave oven effect in our living bedrooms - The dangers of incorrect shielding of rooms or homes.

Voltage Strength Comparisons

The Natural Voltage in the Atmosphere (Schulman Resonance) - 7.83 Hz - 100Hz per second.
The Voltage of 3G and Current Wifi - 2.45 GHz (2.45 billion hertz).
The Voltage of 5G - 10 - 80 GHz.

Countries Taking Action Against 5G

  • Austria was progressive.
  • France limited wireless use in schools.
  • Brussels, Belgium became the first major city in the world to halt 5G development on the basis that its “citizens were not to be used as guinea pigs.” 
  • The Netherlands switches their 5G structure on in one suburb and birds died instantly, so they stopped their 5G rollout.
  • Florence, Italy banned it.

If you want to take action against 5G, Join your local STOP 5G groups - search that on facebook and find the groups.

EMF Meters - How to read EMF and experiment yourself.

PEMF (pulsated electromagnetic fields) devices, stickers on phones. - Do they really mitigate harmful non-native EMF? Nicole thinks they are bullshit because she cannot measure differences with them and has not seen sufficient evidence.

Other Considerations in Building Biology

Seperate your garage from the rest of your house

Obnoxious gasses and traffic pollutants seep from the car into the house. Even after the car is switched off.

Lipstick

  • Lead is found in most lipsticks, even organic ones because the pigments are mined from the ground.
  • Pregnant women and women in reproductive age should not wear coloured lipsticks.

Tampons

  • Cotton - the dirtiest crop out there.
  • Over 95% of conventional cotton has glyphosate. 
  • Into the permeable vagina monthly.
  • Polyester - derived from petroleum. Can potentially have heavy metals.
  • “Fragrances” - can be a thousand different chemicals. 
  • Dioxin - a toxic by-product. Next to glyphosate one of the most dangerous chemicals in existence. 
  • Biological effects - endometriosis, infertility, immune disruptions, pelvic inflammatory disease, diabetes, birth defects, breast cancer, reproductive cancer.
  • Glyphosate - hormone disrupting, disrupts your nerves, inflammatory. Found in 85% of tampons (Argentina study). 

The Menstrual Cycle - An Important Detoxification Process
It should be honoured with warm and iron-rich foods. 

Bone Broths - know your bones - Bones can hold onto lead.

Mould

The new asbestos. Pandemic across the world.

Cause of mould - moisture.

  • Micro-organisms require food and moisture to thrive.
  • Up to 50% of indoor environments in Australia are affected by dampness, which is the prime condition for mould growth. 
  • Once moisture sits on a surface for more than 48 hours, the microbes on the surface will attempt to take over the space by producing endotoxins, mycotoxins (toxic substance produced by a fungus) and microbial Volatile (easily evaporated) Organic Compounds (by-products) which can dramatically impact the indoor air quality and affect the health of the occupants. 

Food for mould - Pre-digested particle board and cheap timbers has become the perfect fast food for mould rather than natural building materials like hardwood timbers that naturally contain resins that are resistant to fungal attack.

Mould can multiply itself in the presence of EMF.

24% of the population cannot create antibodies to mould; so every time they go into a water-damaged building, it results in inflammation in their brain and their body which can be misdiagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or even worse, a mental illness

Mould is a detoxification issue.

Some biological effects of mould exposure:

  • Reoccurring colds
  • Developing pneumonia in a healthy person.

About Miriam Kattumuri

From a very young age, Miriam believed that in order to enjoy a healthy life one must maintain a positive interaction with the environment.

Her love for people and environment was the motivation in creating a unique line of cookware made from the purity of nature.  One that is timeless and yet as new as tomorrow – All-Natural clay cookware!

About 8 years ago, her own personal encounter with diabetes and the realization that the world around only seems to be getting sicker every day, set her off on a journey traveling the world looking for healing in the most fundamental of place – our food.  Her research led her to know the damage to food because of cooking in the wrong pots and pans, and so her search continued, now with more direction, to find the way to cook food without damaging it’s worth.  After testing cookware made from every kind of material, from the most expensive to the least, she discovered that All-Natural clay – nature’s own gift – has been from time unknown and still was, the safest and healthiest!  She then returned home to create her own line of pots and pans made from this material without any additives and no compromises to purity and strength. Miriams Earthen Cookware was born from this labor of love.

Today Miriam can be seen working on creating machine jigs and tools to efficiently create new products for her line, and on expanding marketing, but her hand is still in the clay, spinning utility and beauty from this wonderful gift of nature.  She will also be the first to let you know that her vision and mission is a reality today greatly because of her team of hard-working and skillful individuals and her supportive family, to whom she is always grateful.  Miriam is a graduate of Psychology from Women’s Christian College, Chennai India.  And the mother of 4 beautiful children.


In This Episode We Discuss

Food (ahara) is one of the three pillars of health (Traya UpaSthambha) according to Ayurveda. Food nourishes your tissues and sustains life!

You NEED to include the cook ware you are cooking in.

The healthiest (clay) cookware on the planet!

How Miriam Got into Cookware
She was part of the diabetes pandemic and cured that along with other health issues with healthy cookware!

Miriam's story

“After the birth of my son, when he was about 8-9 months old, I started getting clear dreams between 3-4 am of making cooking pots from clay, pure clay and just clay without any chemical additives.  The ideas flooded in, images, descriptions… I had to wake up and take notes.”

Miriam's extensive search for the purest and healthiest cookware in the world.

Miriam's work attracted religious leaders and experts from all fields. 

The Epidemic of Diabetes in the World, Especially India and USA

  • About 50% of the world population of diabetes is in India.
  • One million people die a year from diabetes in India.
  • 85% of Americans are pre-diabetic. 

Different Types of Materials of Cookware

Teflon - containing toxins like Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) that can kill birds just from the fumes from heat.

Non-stick coatings -  Toxins like Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic, Feldspar, Petalite (an ore of lithium) from the non-stick coating.

Our minds are not meant to remember these chemical names.

Aluminium - A known neurotoxin. Aluminium foil does not cause this so much but heat, makes this pseudo-nutrients leech out a lot more. Also acidic foods bring the metals out. e.g. tomato sauce.

The Metal Ions/Chemicals Biological Reaction:

  • In the presence of heat, they get bound to the food and enter into our digestive systems.
  • From their they are booked down along with the food and are absorbed by the tissues of the body.
  • Foreign elements activate the immune system to fight and eliminate it. It is an unsustainable and a recipe for immune-dysfunction for the immune system to be working every meal 3-4 meals a day, everyday!

Pure Clay Pots contains all the five elements (PanchaMaha bhutas) and are living entities.

Stainless Steel

  • This alloy (a mixture of different metals) is available in different grades, the popular ones (general purpose) are 304 and 316.
  • The 304-grade stainless steel contains elements like Chromium, Nickel, Carbon, Manganese, and Silicon.
  • 316 also has high levels of Nickel and Molybdenum.
  • What is the core - aluminium? When it gets scratched the core comes out.
  • All these elements are highly reactive and break down as ions when food is cooked in Stainless steel cookware.
  • These combine with nutrients in food and form toxic compounds that are dangerous in the body.
  • For instance, a very small amount of concentration of nickel can cause kidney dysfunction, low blood pressure, muscle tremors, oral cancer, skin problems etc.

Cast iron and iron

  • Good method to get iron in the body but beware those with excess iron.
  • Better not cook food with water in iron.
  • High near-infrared heat from the metal  = damages delicate nutrients in food.

Copper (Tamra)

  • Great to leave water in a copper cup overnight.
  • Beware sour and high-level pH.
  • It is reactive metal - reacts with other chemicals to create an undesirable end product.
  • High near-infrared heat from the metal = damages delicate nutrients in food.
  • You lose a lot of steam, which is essentially water-soluble nutrients depleting the food.

Ceramics

  • Man-made material made to replicate clay.
  • Contains 0-9% a refined form of natural clay (usually secondary clay). - Same with Porcelain and Stoneware.
  • They contain many toxic elements.
  • Lead in an integral part of the ceramics.

Pots finished with Colourless or Transparent Glazes

  • Where you can see the colour of the clay but it's still glazed and treated with chemicals, oxides and metals.

The Amazing Health and Culinary Benefits of Pure Clay

Pure Clay Breathes

  • Exhale - It pulls toxins from the food and pushes it out of the walls of the pot to the outside walls of the pot.
  • Inhale - It breathes in oxygen to fortify the food with prana (life-force).
  • Like soil self-cleansing and regulating.

Pure Clay Better for Blood Sugar, Diabetes and Insulin Management

  • Damaging heat in conventional cookware destroys the complex (and delicate) carbs and leaves an overload of simple carbs.
  • If the pot burns your fingers it burns the delicate complex carbs!
  • We need a balanced diet of both simple and complex carbs for optimal insulin management.
  • Excess simple carbs require high insulin to break down these carbs into energy which leads to shorts bursts of energy which is a poor way to utilise the insulin hormone.
  • Plus there are a low amount of complex-carbs which is low GI and helps the pancreas to produce insulin.
  • This miss-management of insulin + low amount of complex carbs causes the body to not produce enough insulin to transport, store & utilise glucose (carbs when digested become glucose), resulting in a condition with excessive glucose in the blood — diabetes!

The food-friendly heat of pure clay pots gently cooks the nutrients keeping intact both the simple and complex carbs, and the essential vitamins and minerals.

Complex carbs are more sustained energy, so energy levels are optimised. 

Losing Weight from Cooking in Pure Clay

Keeping the Food’s Nutrients Intact - Unique Gentle Heating Mechanism

  • Not just that - the heat from these (earthen) pots is different -- they cook without destroying even the most delicate nutrients!
  • In my experience, the food isn’t so “extracted,” it is kept intact, the nutrients are concealed into one nourishing an delicious dish.
  • Harsh, near-infrared heat from the walls of metals and man-made materials like ceramic/enameled/glazed pots destroy a lot of these nutrients. 
  • Touch a metal/ceramic pot 5-10 minutes into cooking and it can burn your hand, food is also tissue matter and is prone to damage with that kind of heat.
  • On the other hand, the gentle far-infrared heat from MEC's walls penetrates deeply without destroying these important nutrients, all of it taking less heat and about the same amount of time or less (on a gas stove)! - You touch it and it doesn’t burn!
  • Study on nutrient retention: 28-30% of the nutrients remain in toor dhal in a pressure cooker vs. 98-100% of the nutrients remain in a pure clay pot.

The Purity of Clay Pots

  • The clay is pure and the pots made without any additives. MEC go to great lengths to fully test our clay before harvesting.
  • They are made by hand on a high spinning pottery wheel, so the clay remains pure and no additives are needed.
  • The clay we use is of the highest quality natural clay called primary clay or MEC's pure clay™ (rich in nutrients!). It has no metals, oxides, chemicals, toxins.
  • Even though we know that primary clay does not have toxins, we test for soil contaminants, the history of the land is evaluated going back 200 years and the clay is verified to be of the highest quality. 
  • It is harvested from 20-25 feet below the surface.

Steam Condensing: No Loss of Water-Soluble Nutrients

  • Most of the steam generated in food is water-soluble nutrients.
  • Out of the 13 essential vitamins and minerals, 9 are water-soluble, which means they dissolve in water, is quickly used in the body and needs to be replenished every day.
  • Steam leaves the pot also makes the food lighter.

Invigorate with Prana: Cook in the Presence of Oxygen

  • As the temperature goes up inside the pot, the higher pressure draws in air through the semi-porous walls, fortifying food with much-needed oxygen.
  • This is a stark contrast to food cooked in an airless/lifeless environment in regular cookware.
  • Another reason why you shouldn’t glaze the pots.

Miriams Earthen Cookware (MEC): A Green and Sustainable Company:

  • Low Cost!
  • Green and sustainable.
  • Innovating and testing methods of clay preparation, processing, making, finishing, firing, to yield a product untouched by chemicals, additives or contaminants typically used in almost all making methods of cookware. 
  • Takes less energy - heat and time, to cook the foods.
  • Pulp (eggs) - sustainable packing material.
  • Carbon neutral.

Cancer Biopsy Can Potentially Spread the Cancer: Alleviate the Aggressive Attitude

This is important for all you to understand because most of us, whether it is yourself, a friend or family member, is going to get cancer, and biopsies are an important part of the cancer journey.

A biopsy is to tell if the tumour is benign or malignant, the stage of it, or whether it is aggressive or not.

The issue with this is, you are taking a needle and you are going to stab this group of cells in their micro environment to remove some parts of the tissue for analysis.

This creates a wound in that micro environment that triggers “invasion” and the macrophages and other cells of the immune system become compromised. 

You can take a potentially benign situation and make it malignant. 

On the other hand, if there is some degree of malignancy and then you stab this micro-environment with a needle, you then run the risk of making a bad situation even worse.

So what is the value of doing a biopsy in the first place?

Well, we take biopsies of breast tissue to get a genomic readout of the different kinds of mutations that might be in the cells.

BUT if cancer is NOT a genetic disease, and the mutations are largely irrelevant! (another article to come on this: that Cancer is NOT a Gene-Drive Disease), then it makes no sense to do that in the first place.

If the tumour is benign, why would you want to stab it?

If the tumour is malignant, why would you ever! want to stab it?

There is plenty of medical literature showing how needle biopsies have lead to the dissemination of these cancer cells, putting these people at risk for metastatic cancer and death.

We don’t want to put anybody at risk for spreading their disease using any kind of procedure. 

Going ahead with quick to act surgery while being ignorant about the biology of the disease + lack of consideration and education on alternative approaches can create a similar reaction. Non-strategical surgical is inconsiderate to the poor little cancer cells that have been neglected and isolated amongst their micro-environment (thus they proliferate instead of their natural function of cell suicide/apoptosis/Shiva/destruction function of nature).

Surgery can also disturb the micro-environment. These cells that are marginally aggressive become highly aggressive, leading to the demise of the patient.

Secondary glioblastoma (an aggressive form of cancer) for example, regularly arises from a therapeutic attempt to manage a low-grade tumour.

It is vital to understand that more people die from cancer treatment than cancer itself.

An approach to consider:

Don’t touch the beast, just let it sit there. Don’t disturb the micro-environment. Use metabolic therapy + advanced Ayurvedic herbs (bhasmas) and treatments to shrink the cancer big time.

If it goes away, wonderful work and thanks to your bodily intelligence for performing (smriti).

If it is still there shriveled, you can do a complete surgical debulking.

Alchemising the Essence of Traditional Medicine with Dr. Jimi Wollumbin {Podcast #007}

Lets not only explore some of the gems, techniques and knowledge from a range of traditional medicine but let's cultivate capabilities to relate with the essence of these ancient lineages in order to heal using a more direct, holistic and powerful approach.

Set at the feet of Mt Wollumbin (Mt Warning) in the Northern Rivers of NSW at Jimi’s healing sanctuary, this interview explores traditional healing gems and techniques derived from a diverse catalogue of ancient lineages.

That is what Dr. Jimi has uniquely cultivated. An ability to cross-pollinate medical traditions then apply that in his clinic and teachings while maintaining professional sovereignty.

Jimi sheds insight into the root causes of disease by exploring deep and subtle primary wounds.

His approach is understanding and communing with the essence of a herb, a medical device, a body system, disease or a patient, in order to heal holistically. This is what makes a physician at the top of their game.

This interview is basically me picking Jimi’s brain on all cool things traditional medicine while he shares his philosophical views and approach. I also enquire about his journey of moving from tradition to tradition to cultivate his own flavour of healing while maintaining respect and authentic identity.


About Dr. Jimi Wollumbin

Whether he is presenting at the UN or at a village health co-operative in rural India, Jimi is always a highly engaging speaker, writer and educator. With 19 years clinical experience and almost as much in community development, Jimi combines his deep knowledge of holistic medicine with a passion for social causes and world health. As the social entrepreneur that founded One Health Organisation in 2005, he has since steered it to become the largest holistic and integrative healthcare NGO in the world - having distributed roughly 9 metric tonnes of medicine to hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged communities across the globe. Jimi’s private clients value his obvious passion for traditional medical practices and the way in which he combines aspects of the traditions of India, China, Tibet and Persia that continue to inspire him.


In this Episode we Discuss:

  • How Jimi got the name Wollumbin - the indigenous name of the mountain where Jimi lives.
  • Mt Wollumbin as the “Ajna” (third eye) of Australia. (6:10)
  • Cross-pollinating medical modalities and reviving living traditions. (8:30)
  • Jimi’s personal journey and experience with medicine. (13:30)
  • Jimi’s journey with Ayurveda.
  • The common grammar that underlies Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine. (16:30)
  • Ayurveda and herbal medicine is a labour of love. (22:34)
  • Jimi’s platform of practice - alternative to the alternatives. (23:10)
  • Accessing deep and subtle primary wounds as root causes of disease. “What really needs to be healed here?” (24:30)
  • Pulse diagnosis: deep intimacy of sentients touching sentients. (35:35)
  • Starting to learn Pulse Diagnosis. How to approach it. “Feel” the pulse. (39:35)
  • Leech Therapy: Raktamokshana (Blood liberation). (44:05)
    • Used in 30 hospitals alone in NSW.
    • Why in the European tradition they used to call physicians “leeches.” (47:50)
  • Pan-Indo European Culture: Root culture of Europe encompassing 450 languages. (48:18)
  • Understanding the essence of a medical instrument or herb. Understanding the basic gestalt of the pattern, principle, idea, notion or spirit of a herb or medical device (such as a leech) in order to know how to apply that to the basic gestalt, pattern and principle of a disease. (50:23)
  • The qualities and nature of a leech: dark, night, yin, cool, feminine, water, flowing. (52:25)
  • Uses of leech therapy:
    • Use for something that is hot and not flowing.
    • The most potent anticoagulant known to man (hirudin).
    • All conditions of the blood and excess heat.
    • “Just as the swan drinks only the milk from a diluted milk, similarly the leeches drink only the bad blood first from the pool of (vitiated) blood.” ~ Vaghbata.
  • Other body treatments Jimi utilises: Svedana, Bastis, Shirodhara. (59:46)
  • Healing response of Kati Basti: Warm oil penetrates drives deep down into the tissues and doshas which allows vata (the primary vital force and subtle winds of the body) to flow and for blood to move.
  • 3 Modes of Ayurvedic Blood Letting and Cupping: (01:01:43)
    • Historically used to suck the disease-causing spirits out of the body.
    • Now used to suck the wind out.
    • Move stagnant blood without opening the vein (a mild form of venesection).
    • Toning through taking blood out.
    • Taking a little blood out of a weak person to stimulate the marrow for strength.
    • Treat “hot” infections.
  • Why anaemic people can die from getting fed iron supplements.
  • Disease is a spiritual phenomenon. Ayurveda is old as nature actually. (01:03:14)
  • Disease manifesting due to violation of natural law.
  • Excess iron causing immunological problems, liver strain and cardiac risk. Especially in men who don’t have a chance to shed iron need iron clearance. (01:08:15)
  • Causes of excessive iron: (01:09:40)
  • Iron age. To much arien arterial energy and not enough venus like yin energy.
  • We have stopped blood letting.
  • Earth pollution and heavy metals interacting with iron.
  • Jimi’s favourite herbs: (01:12:28)
  • Angelica:
    • Finland’s sacred and most revered herb.
    • Shamans would use in a range of shamanic practices.
    • Gained its fame during the plague. It was revered by angels and it was an angel that told suffering humanity that angelica would assist in fighting off the plague.
    • Pungent taste (Katu rasa) helps with phlegmatic, kapha, leukkoria, phlegm on lungs - bronchial infection. Low agni and invisible phlegm.
    • Useful for phlegmatic psychologically and physiologically issues (similar to Kapha).
    • Immune booster.
    • Gentle enough for children to use.
  • Adrenal boosters that are stimulants in disguise vs. adaptogens. (01:15:18) - Ginseng, rhodiola, cordyceps - high doses makes them stimulates, exhausting and healing. In low doses they won’t be.
  • Adaptogens have deep tonic properties are Qi tonics and kidney tonics that form ojas faster.
  • Ashwagandha - an adaptogen whose root literally smells like a horse. Balances vata and the nervous system. The “sleepy nightshade.” (01:18:50)
  • Today’s most common health issues Jimi sees in practice: Endocrine disharmony and hormonal problems that have adrenal fatigue at their root due to flight or fight constantly turned on. (01:21:32)
  • Parasympathetic nervous system: “Rest and digest.” “Feed and breed.”
  • Digestive disorders of vata blowing out agni due to nervous system imbalance.
  • Hypothyroidism - approaching the endocrine system as a web rather than separate glands.
  • Reductionism as a problematic approach to medicine.
