3rd Study in Just 5 Months, Proves Once Again, Cannabis Annihilates Epilepsy in Children

The story of 13-year-old Cyndimae Meehan is a powerful study in the moral imperative of ending the drug war. Cyndimae suffered from Dravet syndrome since she was 10 months old, which caused daily and repeated seizures.

After trying 23 different FDA-approved pharmaceuticals which did nothing but put Cyndimae in a wheelchair, her parents were forced to become criminals and seek out medical cannabis. They found a source in prohibitionist Connecticut, and the results were miraculous.

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil—a non-psychoactive extract of cannabis—stopped Cyndimae’s seizures in its tracks, as seen in a video from March. The girl enjoyed a tremendously better quality of life because of this plant extract.

Music has proven time and again to be an important component of human culture. From its ceremonial origin to modern medical usage for personal motivation, concentration, and shifting mood, music is a powerful balm for the human soul. Though traditional “music therapy” encompasses a specific set of practices, the broader use of music as a therapeutic tool can be seen nowadays as doctors are found recommending music for a wide variety of conditions.

This article on music therapy was originally published on didgeproject.com.

Healing Ourselves And The World With Flower Essences

What Are Flower Essences?

When we look at a medicinal plant, we see the different parts used in various ways. Sometimes the roots are medicinal. Or sometimes the leaves and stems have healing properties.

Though when we look at the flower of any given plant, it is clear that it is often the most vibrant, attractive and spectacular part of the plant itself. It is the quintessential expression of that plant. Wouldn’t it then only make sense that this part of the plant offers us the most medicinal/healing properties of that plant?

For Chronic Low Back Pain, Mindfulness Can Beat Painkillers

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told doctors they should really, really think twice before prescribing opioids for chronic pain.

And now the doctors are telling us that meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy often work better than pain meds and other medical treatments for chronic back pain.

It's the latest in a series of studies saying that low-tech interventions like exercise, posture training, physical therapy and just the passage of time work better than opioids, imaging or surgery for the vast majority of people with chronic back pain.

It's part of a push to move treatment for chronic back pain, which affects about 8 percent of Americans and is a major cause of disability, away from being "medicalized" to something that people can manage by choosing from an array of nonmedical alternatives.

How Your Psychic Senses Are Connected To Earth’s Energy

by Julie Wilson,
NaturalNews

Psychic researcher Pete A. Sanders Jr. knew early on that psychic ability was real, leading him to spend his education at MIT studying brain science and biomedical chemistry, hoping to understand the complex relationship between the brain, the mind and the nervous system.

MIT professor Dr. Jerome Letvin inspired Sanders when he opened a course about nerve study stating: “I am not going to teach what we know about nerves. Everything we know would take about two class sessions to tell you, and is relatively boring. Instead I am going to talk about what we don’t know about nerves.”

Antidepressants taken during pregnancy increase risk of autism by 87 percent

The study published today in JAMA Pediatrics used data from the Quebec Pregnancy Cohort and studied 145,456 children between the time of their conception up to age ten. The study accounted for a number of other factors that have known links to autism, including genetic predisposition to autism (i.e., a family history of it), maternal age, depression itself, and certain socio-economic factors such as being exposed to poverty. Exposure to antidepressants was defined as the mother having had one or more prescription for antidepressants filled during the second or third trimester of the pregnancy.

Researchers suspect that because serotonin is involved in numerous pre- and postnatal developmental processes, antidepressants that inhibit serotonin (particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors known as SSRIs) will have a negative impact on the ability of the brain to fully develop in-utero.

Inside the Superhuman World of the Iceman

Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to use meditation to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he’s climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namib Desert with no water and proven under a laboratory setting that he’s able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will.

Why Grounding With The Energy Of Earth Is Important For Your Well-Being

by PL Chang,
Energy Fanatics

If you were looking for a way to boost your energy so that you feel like a kid again, would you spend money on a health program that assures you it can help you reach your goals? Or would you rather sit outside for free and allow nature to work its magic by boosting your energy instantly? To learn how to instantly increase your energy through nature, you need to understand a simple technique called Earthing.

Most of us know that the energy of the sun is essential for our survival. However, many of us do not realize how important the energy of Earth is for increasing our health and well-being. Without mother Earth’s energy to nourish you, you cannot survive since the energy of her environment is needed to produce water, minerals and oxygen. In addition, her magnetic field, which is made of electromagnetic energy, protects you from harmful radiation and deadly particles from outer space.
