Christian Science Raised the Dead in WW2

Mark Twain hailed her “the most interesting and extraordinary woman that ever lived”. Wow! By WW2 Mary Baker Eddy’s organization was an omnipotent political force.  WW2 soldiers who were Catholic “boys” were allowed access to Catholic priests, Jewish boys got to have rabbis, and so Christian Science boys brought in C.S. ministry. The C.S. church ranked next to the Red Cross for goods supply to war zones. Ministry to soldiers landed C.S. practitioners and their natural medicine literature to war zones and across enemy lines. Channels for the Divine, the soldiers themselves healed physical wounds and mind-body misery using only energy medicine. Accounts are recorded. The wounded were healed, the dead raised.

The very inventions: long-range bombers, rockets, finally the atomic bomb which projected Fear of Extinction through the human consciousness shrank the physical dimensions of the globe to those of a neighborhood. “Mortal mind calls for what ONLY immortal mind can supply, Divine Love. ~Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910), founder of Christian Science.

Robin William’s Death, Like Vets, From Psyche Meds

Posted by on Nov 9, 2014 in All Blog Posts, High School Years, Media, Medicine, PTSD | 0 comments

Twenty-two war vets commit suicide every day in the U.S. If vets could sue the VA maybe we’d have more of them. In  2009 I founded a pilot program, Los Angeles Veterans Acupuncture. I ran it for two years. The V.A. blocked free acupuncture at every level. But I ran a clinic down the street from the V.A. and with Emperor’s College helped war vets diagnosed with PTSD to heal using acupuncture and holistic medicine. The V.A. wanted them on psyche meds.

When Morris’s mind wavered while deployed during WW2, he called it Nostalgia Complex in a letter. He had just returned from a long jeep ride to General MacArthur’s palace in the jungle. Nostalgia Complex is a good way to describe PTSD. Too many vets are on psyche meds. And apparently too many drug rehabs over-prescribe them.

The coroner’s report on Robin Williams shows two psychiatric medications in “therapeutic doses”. One was in his blood, Mirtazapine. WebMD says this drug is used to treat depression. It also kills people with depression. The other drug mentioned is Seroquel, which was not in his blood, but by his side along with his iPad open to several sites offering information about medication. Both drugs that Robin was prescribed have side effects of suicidal ideation and suicide. Suicides like Robin’s, caused by doctor prescribed meds as evidenced by the manner and style of his suicide, are not uncommon.

Medical malfeasance starts with the manufacturer. Robin’s ipad was open to several drug info sites. This indicates someone trying to get info. He had complained to his wife he didn’t like how they made him feel. He had stopped Seroquel. He must have been trying to get of them. Getting off psyche meds can cause worsening symptoms and can be the most dangerous time. Below is Dr. Breggin’s testimony about war vet suicides linked to psychiatry meds. There is no doubt in my mind that psychiatric drugs were responsible for Robin’s death.

When I am Old I Shall Drive a Ford Model A

Posted by on Nov 1, 2014 in 1920s and 1930s, All Blog Posts, Vintage Style | 0 comments

After WWII, cars were hard to come by and my parents had to go to Boston (from Maine) to buy their first car. The family had a Ford Station Wagon in the 60s. And now I drive a Ford Explorer. It’s leftover from my Colorado cowboy days. I wash my car at a self-service place. And just when I was thinking I deserve a more classy carwash experience, look what pulled in for a wash.

1929 Ford Model A Car

1929 Ford Model A Car, My DREAM Car!

Santa Barbara is old car heaven. Beautifully restored vehicles cruise our streets daily. Henry Ford was into healthy lifestyle. Ford built health into his engines. No surprise to see the word HEALTH stamped on the Model A engine. Ford didn’t smoke or drink. Ford design was about simplicity. He was appalled when folks got greedy wanting more than one car, putting in two car garages and such. Henry Ford was opposed to lifestyle excess, believed in truth, health, and ideas like sustainability. Ford is my kind of man, my kind of car.
