Walking corpse syndrome is a very rare neurological disease, formerly known as Cotard’s Syndrome or Cotard’s Delusion, named after the French neurologist Jules Cotard. Cotard’s observations with his patient, Mademoiselle X, earned him the right to have the disease to be named after him, but his patient’s case, circa 1888, was not the first ever recorded.

In 1788, Dr. Charles Bonnet treated an elderly woman with “the powder of precious stones and opium” after insisting she was dead and in another place. She had demanded she be placed in a coffin and mourned after recovering from a short spell of paralysis and loss of sensation or feeling. The treatment worked for her, but she would have occasional relapses afterward.

This syndrome or delusion has nothing to do with “Zombie Apocalypse”, as covered by Health Ranger Mike Adams during some very strange episodes in 2012 in Miami and other spots in that region.

Those were delusional flesh eating Zombie episodes, where a few physically healthy and well fed individuals were compelled to eat live animal or human flesh. You can read that here (http://www.naturalnews.com/035990_zombie_apocalypse_miami_police.html).

How Cotard’s Syndrome differs from zombie delusions or compulsions

Extremely rare Cotard Syndrome is the opposite of any zombie delusions. Victims are convinced they are dead or their organs are dead, including their brain in some cases. But they usually don’t want to eat. After all, they’re dead, so why bother?

Besides, there’s no pleasure in eating anymore. Some victims even die of starvation. A loss of feeling and sensation is at the core of this delusion.

Social disconnects are also basic to this delusion. Human interaction is avoided. There’s just no interest. At 14 years of age, Alabama teen Haley Smith had suffered emotionally during her parents divorce. One day in her English class, she had a feeling she couldn’t shake that she was dead. The school nurse couldn’t detect anything.

Haley’s eating disorder was different than most other cases of Cotard’s Syndrome. She decided that she could eat how much of whatever she wanted to eat since she was dead and wouldn’t gain weight or suffer other health consequences. She had a brief spontaneous recovery, but soon after that totally numb feeling returned.

“I’d fantasize about having picnics in graveyards and I’d spend a lot of time watching horror films because seeing the zombies made me feel relaxed, like I was with family,” Haley explained. She spent a lot of time in bed and often missed school, until one day she attempted to reconnect with one of her friends.

Surprised and emboldened by his understanding her experience, she disclosed her condition with her dad. He urged her to see a psychiatrist. But it took Haley another two years to actually do it. Then she was diagnosed with Cotard’s Syndrome (CS). With that handle, she went online to discover others who felt out of touch with their bodies and wanted to visit graveyards. Now she knew she wasn’t alone.

Talk therapy helped her pull through as well as her relationship with her boyfriend, now fiance’ Jeremy, and Disney movies. She had started to watch and enjoy them, getting “warm fuzzy feelings”. That made her begin to realize she wasn’t dead. Now she’s set on advising others who suffer from CS.

Haley was lucky she didn’t succumb to psychiatry’s other solutions: Anti-depressant and anti-psychotic pharmaceuticals with unpredictability and serious side effects, or ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). Yes, good ole’ shock therapy! Those are the go-to standard of care interventions of conventional psychiatry.

Her solution was through talk therapy, a boyfriend, and Disney. You might consider time for her to heal from the trauma of her parents divorce as another aspect of Haley’s healing.

curcuminI have two cases at the moment that are most topical as there is in the news this week an article where senior medical people ask for the capping of costs for IVF treatment. http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34658354. Whatever one thinks, and Nature appears to be ignored in this discussion, the creation of a child other than by natural means is clearly a huge lot of trouble not to mention the cost to the State. So, is there possibly a way round this, and avoiding noxious chemicals? There just might be, for some.

 

I have a friend, who does not believe in natural remedies, who has produced twin boys after three attempts at IVF. I also have a client who was troubled with serious menstrual pains. She had uterine fibroids that she asked me if I could help with. I immediately suggested Home Cures Serrapeptase Strong ™ and Home Cures Curcumin99™. She has recently emailed me to say she is so delighted, she is pregnant and deliriously happy after trying for years to have a baby.

serrapeptaseThe first lady did not take any Serrapeptase or Curcumin, despite entreaties; the second has had a good result. However, one thing is clear from this;  that infertility is not always insurmountable. Yes it is on the increase, lifestyle taking a massive part of the blame. No, it is not always the end of the story before the IVF route. And natural remedies are known to be better than any chemicals. Here are extracts from Lady N° 2’s emails of her route to happiness.

In November 2014 I stopped « The Pill » because of the risks of the possible cancerous and other unwanted side effects…. I rather think that it is possibly the pill that was the cause of my pains and almost certainly my fibroids.

In July 2015 I saw a Consultant for my painful periods and it was found that I had small , 8mm, fibroids, considered too small to do anything about with conventional medication. As I said I had stopped contraception in November 2014, … and then, thanks to an article on the internet, in September this year I contacted you. Then in October I got pregnant. I am so happy !

If you would like to Use Serrapeptase and Curcumin to help you get Pregnant you can buy Serrapeptase ™ or buy Curcumin 99™ they are available from Home Cures Natural Remedies.

It’s happening all around the world, and emerging research suggests that the environmental impact of its use is absolutely devastating: geoengineering, a man-made climate control scheme marked by criss-crossing air sweeps that leave behind streams of shimmering “chemtrail” debris across our skies, is now being linked to widespread drought and famine throughout the world, not to mention the complete breakdown of Earth’s agricultural systems.

Geoengineering expert Dane Wigington of GeoengineeringWatch.org says chemtrail operations represent the “greatest single source of damage on many fronts,” and he might just be right. In some areas of the world, persistent drought conditions brought about by artificial weather manipulation have led to massive reductions in crop output and ever-dwindling fresh water supplies.

In Mongolia, for example, an astounding 80 percent reduction in crop yields is the direct result of persistent drought conditions, suggests Wigington. Similarly, in Thailand, farmers are struggling to produce enough food as water supplies dry up. In some areas, military soldiers are having to protect what little water remains at gunpoint.

A little closer to home, California and many areas of the Pacific Northwest continue to hobble through epic drought conditions that have left many formerly flourishing crop fields completely bone dry. California farmers are reportedly pulling in higher revenues for the crops they’re able to procure, but this is likely due to the fact that supplies continue to dwindle, which, economically speaking, drives food prices higher.

For a more thorough explanation as to how geoengineering and “chemtrails” are affecting precipitation patterns, refer to our earlier piece citing evidence of artificial weather manipulation as a driving factor in the California drought crisis.

Geoengineering isn’t a conspiracy theory; it’s conspiracy FACT

If you’re still of the mindset that geoengineering is some kind of loony conspiracy theory, then you’re not keeping up with the latest science. The United Nations’ (UN) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) openly referred to geoengineering in a 2013 report, noting that stratospheric aerosols are used to produce artificial “clouds” designed to alter weather patterns.

A more recent paper published in the journal Environmental Research Letters examines how geoengineering programs — they’re stated matter-of-factly because it’s now general knowledge that they’re taking place to combat “climate change” — are affecting crop yields. The paper talks about a geoengineering method known as “marine cloud brightening” that was offered up as a solution to climate change nearly 25 years ago.

The paper erroneously concludes that such methods will improve crop yields, but the latest science suggests otherwise. Nevertheless, the paper admits that geoengineering, cloud “brightening,” and other weather manipulation tactics are real. Those of us watching these developments are here to say that they don’t work and are actually making the problem worse.

“A primary stated goal of the geoengineering programs is to provide a ‘solar shield’ to slow ‘runaway climate change’ by spraying tens of millions of tons of highly toxic metal nano particulates (a nanometer is 1/1,000,000,000 of a meter) into the atmosphere from jet aircraft,” reports Wigington.

“The ‘hydrological cycle’ of the planet is being completely disrupted by the geoengineering aerosol saturation of the atmosphere,” he says.

Wigington has been researching the damaging effects of man-made geoengineering programs for years, noting that much of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest is now polluted with particulates of aluminum, barium, and other toxic metals as a direct result of chemtrail spraying throughout the region. These chemicals are not only damaging soils by acidifying them, but they’re also affecting the quality of water, food and air.

Few people are aware that auto-immune disease, chronic illnesses, and acute illnesses may be related to mercury poisoning from dental fillings or unresolved infection involving a root canal or extraction. In our society, conventional medicine and conventional dentistry both separate the mouth from the rest of the body, not realizing the synergistic relationship between each tooth and vital organs or the mouth’s ability to create systemic illness. Systemic illness is also often a sign of undiagnosed oral disease.

A tooth is arguably an organ in itself, and many holistic dentists view it as one. Each tooth is also connected to other organs, tissues, glands etc. through the meridians of the body. Disease with a dead tooth (root canal) or bone and tissue disease due to extractions (cavitations) not only leech toxins into the body, causing a challenge for the immune system, there is also a deleterious effect on organs and tissues of the corresponding meridian. This meridian connection goes both ways. “…my studies kept bringing me back to the role of dental procedures and dental diseases in general health conditions and to how oral disease is often a sign of systemic illness,” writes Dr. Alison Adams, a former dentist who became a naturopath.

Mercury fillings – amalgam
Mercury fillings slowly leech mercury and mercury vapor, causing a multitude of problems in the body including disruption of the nervous system, the immune system, the circulatory system, and the reproductive system. Mercury can damage the brain, heart, kidneys, and lungs – virtually every organ and every system in the body.

Dr. Alison Adams states, “There are many thousands of documented cases where removal of amalgam fillings when combined with mercury detoxification and nutritional support has cured or significantly improved serious health problems including cancers such as multiple myeloma and leukemia.”

Root canals
After a root canal is performed, the tooth is dead. The remaining tissue and structure now provides a ripe environment for remaining bacteria. Tooth material (dentine) is not solid. It is rife with tubules – incredibly small canals or tunnels. If you were to stretch out the tubules in each tooth, tubules from incisors would reach 3 miles, while tubules from molars would reach 9 miles.

Once the pulp is removed from the tooth, there is no longer a blood or oxygen supply. The bacteria that remain can mutate to an anaerobic form and multiply until there are millions living within the tubules of the dead tooth. From there, they secrete potent toxins. A dead tooth may spew toxins into the body with no detectible symptoms – no pain, no swelling of the gums – nothing to alert you that it is wrecking havoc upon your immune system and causing chronic and acute medical conditions that you are attempting to cure.

Cavitations
Cavitations are infection of the bone after tooth extraction. It is believed that most of these infections are caused by two things: leaving the tendon that was attached to the tooth and not excavating the site of infection. Another cause may be the use of drugs during the procedure that cut off the blood flow to the site.

The best practice is to clean out the site, remove any dead tissue, bone, and the tendon, then allow the blood to clot. This blood clot forms the site for new cells to grow, to actually fill in the missing bone and build new healthy tissue. A dry socket or a closed site over active infection does not allow this healing process to occur.

When cavitations occur, they are often asymptomatic. Although the bone is being eaten by nasty anaerobic bacteria, there may be no pain. The bacteria, however, is exuding powerful toxins that may be causing damage to your immune system or the toxins may be the underlying cause of your chronic health condition(s).

Conclusion
If you’re dealing with any of these dental procedures, your diet and lifestyle should be such that you’re body is always detoxifying, and always getting plenty of nutrition. For any one of these dental issues it’s advisable to bullet proof your immune system until you can get your teeth repaired, and take good care of your mouth with natural organic oral care.

non-toxic cleaning recipeOur floors are the largest surface area in our homes that require regular cleaning. If we use chemicals, we breathe them in day and night until they dissipate. There is no need to add to our indoor air pollution when we can use simple and handy, homemade cleaning solutions.

Wood, bamboo, and laminate floor – non-toxic cleaning recipe

It would be so easy to clean every floor of our home with a steam cleaner. No muss, no fuss, nothing but water turned to steam. But regardless of the claims made by the manufacturers, steam cleaners can damage wood, bamboo, and laminate floors.

Laminate floors consist of layers of materials glued together. Any water, but especially steam, will break down the bonds between layers, causing them to buckle and split. Steam can strip the finish that is protecting your hardwood floor. Moisture that seeps into the wood will cause grains to swell and the wood to warp and splinter.

The primary rule for bamboo, laminate, and hardwood floors is the same: do not wet mop–dry mop (though damp mop would be a better descriptive term). After thoroughly sweeping or vacuuming your floor, use a well wrung out sponge or rag mop with plain water, water with a few drops of essential oil, or water with 1/4 cup of vinegar (added to a 2 gallon bucket). Use warm water; it will evaporate faster than cold. Buff the floors dry with a soft cloth or towel.

Perusing the net, you will find other suggestions such as 1/2 cup of lemon juice added to water. However, a manufactures’ site warns against using citrus to clean laminate flooring as it will damage the finish after repeated use. Many sites, including a manufacturer’s site, suggest using 1/4 cup of dish soap to a bucket of water to clean sealed hardwood floors–without rinsing. But it only stands to reason that, over time, soap residue would accumulate. If you do rinse, you are using more water. Since the object is to clean with the least amount of water possible, this method doesn’t make sense.

One wood laminate manufacturer suggests mixing vinegar and water into a spray bottle. Rather than spraying the liquid on the floor, use it to dampen the bottom of your dust mop.

Another solution, claimed to be even better for wood floors than vinegar, is cleaning with tea. Brew black tea, (1 tea bag per cup of water) and either fill a spray bottle to mist the floor (a small area at a time) then follow with a damp mop, or make enough tea to immerse your mop in a bucket. As before, wring out your mop so it is as dry as possible.

Linoleum, tile, and stone floor cleaning instructions & non-toxic cleaning recipe

Linoleum and tile floors can also be cleaned with vinegar and water. The ratios vary according to preference from 1/4 cup of vinegar to a one-to-one ratio of vinegar to water. For a really dirty floor, try the following recipe:

  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap (remember to choose a natural soap)
  • 2 gallons hot water
  • Add a few drops of essential oil, if desired

Rinsing is not required, but if streaking occurs, rinse.

Do not use lemon juice, vinegar or other acids on marble, limestone, or travertine. To wash these floors, use a squirt of liquid soap (such as castile soap or dish soap, not detergent) in your bucket of water and wet mop. Rinse. Too much soap will cause streaking.

These floors may be the best candidates for a steam mop, but first check with the manufacturer to be sure steam mopping does not void your warranty.

All floors of all types are scratched and scarred by dirt. Mats outside and inside each entrance can help limit the amount of dirt on your floors. A shoeless house can make a tremendous difference. Remember, how often you sweep or vacuum and what you use to mop your floors will determine the longevity of your floor’s finish as well as the level of pollution in your home.
