La’au Lapa’au | Vanilla Is Anything But Vanilla

Vanilla companies seem to be lacking in their plant ID skills. You so rarely see any vanilla products with the correct flower on the label. While I can’t speak for everyone, I think I may have a hunch as to why most companies slap a white PhalaenopsisDendrobium, or any of the other orchid flowers that could remotely pass for being Vanilla on their products. At the same time, it also explains the rather pricey nature of Vanilla “beans.”  […]

La’au Lapa’au | A Miracle Herb for Face, Skin and Hair; Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera Gel and Aloe Vera Juice are extracted from the leaves of the Aloe Vera plant, a botanical that the ancient Egyptians often referred to as “The Plant of Immortality” or “The Plant of Eternity.” It was believed that the “blood” of the Aloe Vera plant would not only address symptoms of fevers, soothe burns and wounds, and enhance daily cosmetic applications, but that it would also magnify beauty and promote imperishability. Known for having anti-bacterial properties, the contents of the Aloe Vera plant were used in embalming rituals, as it was believed that the deceased could achieve everlasting life, both physically and spiritually, if their bodies could be prevented from decomposing.  […]

Permaculture | “The truth about mobile phone and wireless radiation” — Dr Devra Davis

“The truth about mobile phone and wireless radiation: what we know, what we need to find out, and what you can do now.”

Presented by Dr Devra Davis, Visiting Professor of Medicine at the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School, and Visiting Professor of Medicine at Ondokuz Mayis University, Turkey.

The Lecture:  What are the health effects of mobile phones and wireless radiation? While Australia has led the world in safety standards, including compulsory seat-belt legislation, plain packaging on cigarettes, and product and food disclosure legislation, it falls behind in addressing the significant issues associated with mobile phone use. In this Dean’s Lecture, epidemiologist and electromagnetic radiation expert, Dr Devra Davis, will outline the evolution of the mobile phone and smartphone, and provide a background to the current 19 year old radiation safety standards (SAR), policy developments and international legislation. New global studies on the health consequences of mobile/wireless radiation will be presented, including children’s exposure and risks.

The Speaker:  Dr Devra Davis is an internationally recognised expert on electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and other wireless transmitting devices. She is currently the Visiting Professor of Medicine at the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School, and Visiting Professor of Medicine at Ondokuz Mayis University, Turkey. Dr Davis was Founding Director of the Center for Environmental Oncology at The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute —­ the first institute of its kind in the world, to examine the environmental factors that contribute to the majority of cases of cancer.

In 2007, Dr Devra Davis founded non­profit Environmental Health Trust to provide basic research and education about environmental health hazards. Dr Davis served as the President Clinton appointee to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board in the U.S.A. from 1994–­1999, an independent executive branch agency that investigates, prevents and mitigates chemical accidents.

As the former Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services, she has counseled leading officials in the United States, United Nations, European Environment Agency, Pan American Health Organization, World Health Organization, and World Bank.

La’au Lapa’au | Herbs and Spices of Thanksgiving!

Without the herbs and spices, we associate with our traditional Thanksgiving spread the food would be rather dull.  What would the turkey be without incorporating sage (Salvia officinalis) in our stuffing?  Cinnamon is a must-have for apple pie.  For pumpkin pie, we need cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. And I’d rather not drink my eggnog without a dash of freshly ground nutmeg. Many of us use the familiar Old Bay Poultry seasoning and often, along with sage, this herb and spice mix also includes nutmeg, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, and black pepper.  […]

Mushrooms, Mycology of Consciousness – Paul Stamets, EcoFarm Conference Keynote 2017

“Mycodiversity is our biosecurity. Let’s celebrate decomposition. Let’s let it rot.”

Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen your understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep you take on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

SOUND MEDITATION | ISOCHRONIC TONES AND BINAURAL BEATS (1.5 hrs.)

– this meditation does what a daily microdose of ORME (white powdered gold) can do for your brain, with the obvious exception that, when ingesting the ORME, your beneficial results are permanent and cumulative.
– Headphones are recommended, but not required.
UNDERSTANDING BRAIN PHYSIOLOGY
Brain hemisphere synchronization may result in increased cognitive performance.
There are many potential benefits, but the primary intentions for this video is to:
Build new neural pathways and strengthen existing ones
Stimulate, synchronize and synergize both brain hemispheres for increased cognitive capabilities and capacity
Aid in the development of concentration, learning, and memory
Balance moods by reducing stress hormones and increasing production of “feel-good” neurotransmitters and hormones
The cerebral hemispheres are divided into a right hemisphere and a left hemisphere.
These hemispheres communicate with each other through a thick band of 200-250 million nerve fibers called the corpus callosum. Each hemisphere of the brain is dominant for other behaviors. Most people use one hemisphere more than the other, creating an imbalance.
During meditation, the corpus callosum becomes deeply stimulated. New foundations of neural pathways are built which allows both hemispheres to communicate in sync and to a higher degree.
The right side of the brain controls muscles on the left side of the body and the left side of the brain controls muscles on the right side of the body. Also, in general, sensory information from the left side of the body crosses over to the right side of the brain and information from the right side of the body crosses over to the left side of the brain.
The brain consists of three main parts: the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem.
The cerebrum: composes most of the brain, in simplified terms it is involved in thinking, problem solving, memory, feeling and movement.
The cerebellum: located at the back of the brain, under the cerebrum. In simplified terms, it controls coordination and balance.
The brain stem: sits below the cerebrum and in front of the cerebellum. In simplified terms, it connects the brain to the spinal cord and controls automatic functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and digestion.
The brain is separated into four lobes: the frontal, temporal, occipital, and parietal lobes.
The frontal lobe: involved in problem solving, discernment, memory, language, personality, empathy, concentration, motor function, social and carnal behavior.
The temporal lobe: involved in creative insight, memory acquisition and skills, organization of sensory input such as auditory, visual perception, language comprehension, verbal organization, long-term memory, and personality.
The occipital lobe: the center of our visual perception system. It is involved in visuospatial processing, hallucinations, illusions, discrimination of movement and color.
The parietal lobe: One region involves sensation and perception. The other region involves integrating sensory input. It is involved in writing, mathematics, language, visual perception, spacial navigation, memory, personality.
The right hemisphere is considered the feminine or chaotic side of the brain and is generally responsible for: creativity, intuition, visualization, musical abilities, spacial abilities, non-linear thought, facial recognition and is dominant in the control of emotional processing and expression.
The left hemisphere is considered the masculine or orderly side of the brain and is generally responsible for: organization, logic, analytical, scientific, calculatory, linguistic, and mathematical thought, in addition to practical, linear, and time-oriented thinking strategies.

La’au Lapa’au | Daisy

The Wonky Pot Apothecary

Daisy-FI

La’au Lapa’au | Black Chokeberry Extract May Decrease Acetylcholinesterase Activity in Adolescents Diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a group of risk factors, including abdominal obesity, a disorder of lipid metabolism, glucose intolerance, and hypertension that lead to cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). An unbalanced diet, stress, reduced physical activity, and genetic factors may lead to abdominal obesity and are the main causes of MetS. Adipose tissue releases adipocytokines, which may increase insulin resistance and blood pressure, cause oxidative stress, and disturb lipid metabolism. “Population studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains is inversely associated with the incidence of MetS.” Fruits and vegetables are rich in polyphenolic compounds. Black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa, Rosaceae) is rich in polyphenols. Another study showed that black chokeberry juice had high antioxidant potential.

Cholinesterase is part of a group of enzymes that hydrolyze acetylcholine and other choline esters, including acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE). AChE has…

Gold of the Gods, Alchemy, and Monatomic ORMUS – ROBERT SEPEHR

Laurence Gardner was a British author and lecturer. He wrote on subjects such as the Jesus bloodline, the Knights Templar, the Holy Grail, anti-gravity, and monatomic gold, a consumable elixir which allegedly can do everything from extend life to awaken dormant psychic abilities.

https://atlanteangardens.blogspot.com/2019/10/gold-of-gods-alchemy-and-monatomic.html

David Hudson is credited by most people in the field as being the originator of the term “Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements”, or by its acronym, the ORMEs (ORMUS). Mr. Hudson began speaking publicly about his research and discoveries in 1995, claiming that he had discovered an ingestable matter that caused Superconductivity in the human body, or in other words, what some interpret as the alchemical Philosopher’s Stone.
