PURPORTED HEALTH BENEFITS

There is an herbal extract powder called He Shou Wu that is said to have many wonderful health qualities, including longevity, hair strength and hair growth, and liver and kidney detoxification.

STORY ABOUT MR. HE

There is quite a colorful tale about this herb, and a gentleman named Mr. He, who found at the age of 50 or so that he could, after all, have children by adding this herb to his diet. As legend would have it, he married, had 19 children, and lived till 160 years of age. And his hair changed from grey to black! …

I have tried this herb from time to time. The one I bought was “He Shou Wu Fo ti Root Extract Powder – by Primal Herb | Longevity Tea – Supports Hair Growth & Glowing Skin | Organic Potent 30:1-84 Servings – Aged Roots | Includes Bamboo Spoon ” by Primal Herb … which I purchased at Amazon … www.amazon.com ..

DOSE

I have found, in general, in the use of health supplements, herbs, and Western medicines, it is best to follow one’s own intuition regarding the size of the dose and the frequency of use. That is just my personal intuition; many people feel safer taking ‘just what the doctor orders’. So, for those who are not confident of their intuition, I agree the latter may be the best course of action.

In my case, because I am very sensitive to herbs, I find it best for me to use only a ‘grain’ of He Shou Wu a week … a ‘grain’ is a unit of measurement about as big as a wheat seed or a barley seed. (1) I used it in occasionally in 2017, and priorly, with good success, after I adjusted the dose down to an occasional ‘grain’. For me, it worked fine. You must judge for yourself.

CAVEAT

From my own experience, I ought to offer this advice. I also purchased from Amazon, in 2017, a similar herb called “Fo-Ti Tieng – Ho Shou Wu – Powder,” by TerraVita, sold by ZooScape … There was something about it that did not agree with me, and I had to discard it. Note the similarity in the name … So I would suggest avoiding ‘Ho’ and trying out ‘He’, if the notion appeals to you.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

PANIC ATTACK AS AN ASCENSION SYMPTOM

I remember a few years back I predicted it would be best to stock up on the inexpensive anti-anxiety drug klonopin (Clonazepam) in case the Ascension symptoms everyone is beginning to feel include panic attack. I suggested that because, as of about the year 2000, I had started feeling anxious whenever Solar Flares were the big, X-class sort of flare, and if they were ‘Earth-directed’ … as they say in regard to space weather.

So I figured, maybe other people will have the same reaction, which is why I thought it would be good … especially for weapons-wielding people, such as law enforcement, school guards, security guards, martial artists, and Army-Navy personnel … to keep a supply of klonopin on hand. It would be more important for weapons wielding people to be prepared, I reasoned, as panic attack can trigger either ‘fight’ or ‘flight’. A person with a weapon might, under the influence of a panic attack, do something that they would regret for the rest of their life.

I suggest very short-term use of this drug, and only in emergency situations, as there are notable side effects of withdrawal, especially, apparently, withdrawal from long-term use … including some side effects that may persist for a long time, even if withdrawal is very gradual.

That was my reasoning. I expressed it in this blog, which is a favorite of mine, and with which I hope all my readers are familiar …

BIG INCREASE IN PANIC ATTACK VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE

Back in February 2015, when I wrote the above blog, as I recall, there were only about a dozen videos on youtube when I searched the term: panic attack

Today I performed the same youtube search, for the term: panic attack … and found over a million results. This is odd, as we are currently in a time of Solar Minimum, with very little happening in terms of Solar Events.

PROTONFALL DURING SOLAR WINDS

Of course, even during a Solar Minimum there is the occasional solar wind due to holes in the Sun’s atmosphere … Such a solar wind is impacting Earth today, for instance; this accounts for the current Protonfall …

Solar wind speed: 590.0 km/sec  X  Solar wind density:  11.5 protons/cm3 = 6,785 Protonfall

… (which is midrange) at the latest reading on “Space Weather” … www.spaceweather.com ..

WHEN TO EXPECT THE NEXT SOLAR MAXIMUM

According to Wikipedia …

Link: “Solar Maximum,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_maximum ..

… on average, there are about 11 years from one Solar Maximum to the next Solar Maximum (the variance being 9 to 14 years). The last Solar Maximum was in 2014. If the next cycle takes 11 years, then we will experience the next maximum in 2025.

Theoretically, that might mean that we will be experiencing Solar Minimum for the next few years, and then we may begin to experience more and more Earth-directed solar flares.

SOLAR WINDS MAY BE AS SIGNIFICANT AS SOLAR FLARES IN CAUSING PANIC ATTACKS

Why then, during this period of relative rest, are so many people experiencing panic attacks? There must be a factor that I have overlooked. Could it be, for instance, that Solar Winds experienced during Solar Minimums ought to be as heavily weighted as Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) experienced during Solar Maximums, in terms of negative psychological impact?

Along those lines, I see that the Space Weather Health Alerts information has been revised …

Link: “Space Weather Health Alert Information,” by Ben Davidson, in Space Weather News … https://spaceweathernews.com/space-weather-health-alert-information/ ..

I see that this new chart lists exacerbation of tendencies toward suicide, anxiety, depression, suicide, and emotional swings for both Proton Storms (meaning, I feel, times of high Protonfall) and Solar Flares (meaning, I feel, Earth-directed Coronal Mass Ejections).

MEDICINAL AND HERBAL PREPAREDNESS FOR BOUTS WITH ANXIETY

If you are at risk for anxiety, it will be important to be prepared for panic attack and for generalized anxiety with doctor-prescribed anti-anxiety medications. The difficulty lies in the time it takes, after a panic attack sets in, between our understanding that medicines are needed, and receipt of a prescription from a physician.

If you have no medicines on hand, then depending on your health insurance, it may be necessary to set an appointment with a primary care physician first; this may take weeks. Then the primary care physician must provide a referral to a psychiatrist. Then an appointment must be set with the psychiatrist, who must be convinced to write an anti-anxiety med prescription. Thus from the onset of your panic attack to the receipt of medical treatment may be a lapse of a month. Practically speaking, this equates to not the remotest possibly of timely medical treatment.

It you find yourself on the horns of such a dilemma, then I suggest going to your local health food store and asking about herbal anti-anxiety remedies. I figure these may help alleviate the symptoms, if Western medicines are unavailable.

One thing about Western anti-anxiety medicines, that I have found through online research, is that there may be serious side effects both while taking the medicines, and also while withdrawing from the medicines. That is something very important to consider, as one would not want to develop, for instance, lifelong symptoms of spastic colon after taking Western anti-anxiety medicines. It is very important to look at our health overall, and do the best we can to say healthy.

Klonopin (Clonazepam) as a Possible Anti-Anxiety Drug

Klonopin (Clonazepam) is a low cost anti-anxiety medicine. It takes a doctor’s order to get a prescription of klonopin, and there is no point in getting it unless you have had an experience of occasional, or possibly low-level generalized anxiety. The fact that so many people are experiencing this Ascension symptom makes it, I feel, a far more socially acceptable thing to ask for a prescription, than was the case just a few short years ago.

If you are beginning to experience occasional or low-level generalized anxiety, then I suggest, by all means, go ahead and make that doctor appointment. This will make it clear what is really going on, and whether klonopin is the right drug for you.

I do advise, though, that the doctor may advise long-term use of klonopin; in that case you might let him or her know that serious side effects of klonopin use have recently been reported online, and you might ask whether you might take the drug for just a day or two; and if so, how to ratchet down so as to experience the least possible unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

On Keeping a Supply of Klonopin at Hand in Each of Your Most-Frequented Locations

If you decide to go with klonopin (clonazepam), then I suggest purchasing the klonopin now, and keeping a supply on hand at work, in the handbag or wallet, in the car, and in the home. Once panic sets in, it is hard to remember where the klonopin is, so dual availability is an important consideration.

On Knowing the Warning Signs of Panic Attack, So As to Dose Early

Also, it is good to read up on the warning signs of an impending panic attack, both in oneself and in others. I find, for myself, that a panic attack, if spotted early, can be managed within a half hour or so of taking klonopin. But the doctors say that, if a panic attack becomes ‘full blown’, then it may take longer for the feelings of anxiety to subside. So it is a very good project to spot the warning signs of a panic attack, and take the medicine early on.

A New Way to Dose with Klonopin, That Has Worked for Me

Of course, the safest thing to do, if you are experiencing panic attacks, is to follow the pharmaceutical advice regarding dosage that is listed on your prescription, or alternatively, the advice of your medical doctor.

My own experience is that it is all right for me to stop taking klonopin when the Solar Event is past, as for me, the anxiety I occasionally experience has to do with electromagnetic frequency sensitivity; apparently the Earth’s EMF, when turbulent, affects my EMF field (including my nervous system), resulting in a feeling of anxiety. Then when the Solar Event is over, my nervous system returns to normal.

HYPOTHESIZING A NEW DISEASE: EARTH EMF HYPERSENSITIVITY

Why is my experience different from the norm? I feel it is possible that some of the people now experiencing panic attacks are facing not the old-fashioned ‘panic attack’ … for which the pharmacists’ advice is written … but a new sort of ‘panic attack’ … what you might call an Ascension symptom, or a Lightworker symptom, or ‘Earth EMF Hypersensitivity’.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARTH EMF HYPERSENSITIVITY AND ‘EMF HYPERSENSITIVITY’

This new phenomenon is a little like what Wikipedia and the World Health Organization calls ‘EMF Hypersensitivity’ …

Link: “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity,” in Wiiipedia …  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_hypersensitivity ..

… but with Solar Events (rather than artificial EMF fields such as power lines) being the causal factor.

CONCLUSION: TIMING KLONOPIN DOSAGE TO SOLAR EVENTS IN INSTANCES OF EARTH EMF HYPERSENSITIVITY

In essence, then, I feel this is a newly recognized disease, that might be termed Earth EMF Hypersensitivity, and that is why occasional klonopin (Clonazepam) doses, timed to Earth-impacting Solar Events, are working well for me.

I have not tried herbal anti-anxiety agents, but my personal guess would that I might try chamomile tea, which is calming, in a pinch. There may be other good, calming herbal teas as well.

Those are my thoughts on the topic of preparedness for the Ascension symptom of panic attacks, for now.

Jerusalem Oak Goosefoot, a Fragrant Herb . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Jerusalem oak goosefoot … also known as Dysphania botrys, Chenopodium botrys, sticky goosefoot, and feathered geranium … is a fragrant wild herb that grows in waste places from California to Canada, in the Eastern United States, in Central Europe, and in Tibet. I found the plant shown in the video in the San Gabriel Mountains of California.

Intuition tells me this plant may be useful to clear the mind and the lungs, as is purported to be the case with these Santa Monica Mountains plants: white, purple, and black sage, wooly blue curls, and sagebrush. Further research is needed on the medicinal value of these plants, perhaps for use as essential oils?

There is an edited Summary after the video. After that is a new section

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I am at Mount Baldy right now, And this plant here …

… which I have encountered before, is Dysphania botrys, a strongly fragrant herb that, I read online, is sometimes used to flavor foods. Intuitively, I feel that the scent of Dysphania botrys clears the mind and the lungs. If this is so, then its essential oil might be helpful in herbal healing. …

[End of Video]

Grief, Sorrow and Sadness

Maybe Dysphania botrys would be useful for grief, sorrow, and sadness, which are often stored in the lungs. The mind is a little less clear when emotions are stored in the body, so this might account for the feeling I have that this herb clears the mind as well as the lungs.

………

EMOTIONS STORED IN THE LUNGS

I feel the reason that sad emotions are stored in the lungs may be that, when we feel the emotions, we may hunch our shoulders a little … This is an instinctive reaction to protect the heart as it experiences sadness. This slight posture change constricts the lungs, making the space available for intake of air smaller and less efficient.

CORRECTING POSTURAL IMPERFECTIONS RESOLVES SOUL WOUNDING

Where there are postural imperfections, there our Soul wounding incidents are stored. Why is this? Maybe the perfectly healthy body naturally resolves and transmutes Soul wounding and the negative emotions involved. This theory, that perfection of posture can result in spiritual transformation is the basis of the Rolfing healing technique, for example.

From my own experience with bodywork, I have found that correcting posture, working with physical education, including stretching as well as toning workouts, getting shiatsu treatments, and so on, are very effective in clearing negative emotions stored in slight postural misalignments.

PERFECTING PHYSICAL BALANCE ALSO PERFECTS MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL BALANCE

Then for balance, there are physical exercises such as standing on first one foot, then the other. In addition, working with the breath, first from one nostril, then from the other, assists in balancing the body energies. This work with the physical body affects the body’s energy fields, including the mind and the emotions.

Fenugreek Tea for Diabetes . by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally published on 17 September 2013 

Image: Fenugreek Tea recipe: http://www.buzzle.com/img/articleImages/333333-5259-47.jpg ..

Dear Ones,

Fenugreek seeds are inexpensive, the tea is easy to make, and the effects are many and far reaching in returning human health to its highest potential.

According to the University of Michigan Health System, fenugreek seeds have been used to treat diabetes type 1 and type 2, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and constipation. See “Fenugreek Uses,” http://www.uofmhealth.org/health-library/hn-2090006 ..

Personally, I’ve found a tea made of fenugreek seeds to be effective as an overall health. Perhaps you might find it so as well.

Just about any health food store sells fenugreek seeds. They can also be purchased inexpensively at www.amazon.com ..

For more on this topic, see “Find a Vitamin or Supplement: Fenugreek,” by WebMD, http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-733-fenugreek.aspx?activeingredientid=733& ..
