RE-EDUCATION CAMP MANUAL INCLUDES RULES ON ISOLATING POLITICAL PRISONERS




Document also describes forced labor

A shocking U.S. Army manual that describes how “political activists,” including American citizens, are to be indoctrinated in re-education camps also includes rules on forced labor and separating political prisoners by confining them in isolation.

Aside from detailing how PSYOP teams will use “indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes,” as well as targeting “political activists” with indoctrination programs to provide “understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions,” the manual directs political prisoners to be separated from the rest of the camp population.

On page 284, the manual (PDF) describes how “Malcontents, rabble-rousers, trained agitators, and political officers who may attempt to organize resistance or create disturbances within the I/R facility,” are to be confined “in isolated enclosures to deny them access to the general population.”

The document also makes clear that the internment facility is not only a re-education camp but also a forced labor camp. Page 277 of the manual states, “Detainees constitute a significant labor force of skilled and unskilled individuals. These individuals should be employed to the fullest extent possible in work that is needed to construct, manage, perform administrative functions for, and maintain the internment facility.”

Page 69 of the manual notes in a section called ‘Detainee Processing Technique’ that prisoners should first have their weapons confiscated before “silence” is guaranteed by methods to, “Prevent detainees from communicating with one another or making audible clamor….Silence uncooperative detainees by muffling them with a soft, clean cloth tied around their mouths and fastened at the backs of their heads.”

As we have exhaustively documented, all these provisions apply not only to prisoners in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, but also to American citizens domestically, including “civilian detainees” incarcerated for “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power,” as part of “domestic civil support operations” involving FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security.

The manual details how prisoners will be identified by their “social security number,” another glaring confirmation that the rules apply to U.S. citizens.

The document makes it clear that the rules apply to processing American detainees on U.S. soil so long as the President passes an executive order to nullify Posse Comitatus, the law that forbids the U.S. military from engaging in domestic law enforcement.

Although this story has gone viral amongst independent media outlets, the only mainstream news operations to cover it have been Russia Today and Digital Journal. Having studied all the documents, Digital Journal writer Anne Sewell confirms all the points of our original article – that the manual does describe how to re-educate political activists and that its policies do apply to U.S. citizens domestically.

ARE YOUR IMPERFECT RELATIONSHIPS A DISEASE? PSYCHIATRY THINKS SO


Saturday, May 05, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The ever-expanding list of so-called psychiatric conditions included in the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) may soon include "relational disorders," or mental illnesses supposedly attributed to two or more people involved in a relationship together.

According to the official definition, relational disorders are "persistent and painful patterns of feelings, behavior, and perceptions involving two or more partners in an important personal relationship." A married couple, for instance, that continually fights would constitute a relational disorder, as would a troubled parent-child relationship.

If recognized and included in the manual, relational disorders will be the first psychiatric condition that involves more than one person. It will also be the first condition that exists only between two or more people, and not in a single individual.

"When couples go to counseling, trying to communicate, neither member is the 'sick' one," said Michael Frist, associate professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University, to USA Today in reference to relational disorders. "It is the relationship that needs to be worked on."

While many psychiatrists see the potential acceptance and recognition of relational disorders as a breakthrough in psychiatric medicine, others see it as a ploy to sell more drugs and thus keep the flailing psychiatric profession in business.

"DSM certification of RD could prove to be a cash cow for all the professionals treating people from heartbroken marriages and feuding families," writes Ian Dowbiggin for the Huffington Post. "800,000 U.S. couples a year visit offices for marital and family help. Do the math. Some people stand to make a lot of money."


Modern psychiatry driven by pushing drugs for made-up conditions

A recent ABC News report highlights other glaring financial conflicts in the DSM as well. Set for official publication in 2013, the fifth edition of DSM contains "updated" treatment protocols for a host of psychiatric illnesses that are pharmacologically based, which means the modus operandi treatment guidelines entail a purely pharmaceutical drug approach (http://www.naturalnews.com ).

The new DSM is also slated to dub everyday emotions like sadness and grieving as mental disorders in need of psychiatric drug treatments (http://www.naturalnews.com). This is hardly surprising, as a study conducted by researchers from Tufts University revealed that more than half of the DSM's fourth edition authors had direct ties to drug companies (http://www.naturalnews.com/019404.html ).

"It is important to understand clearly that modern psychiatry -- and the identification of new psychiatric diseases -- began not by identifying such diseases by means of the established methods of pathology, but by creating a new criterion of what constitutes disease," writes Kelly Patricia O'Meara in her book http://www.naturalpedia.com .

"[W]hereas in modern medicine new diseases were discovered, in modern psychiatry they were invented."

CALIFORNIA CONSIDERS LEGISLATION MAKING IT A CRIME TO COUNSEL CHILDREN NOT TO BE HOMOSEXUAL

By Pete Winn

(AP Photo)(CNSNews.com) - Conservative pro-family groups in California are making preparations to challenge what they call a “dangerous” bill banning "reparative therapy" for teens that is on a fast track through the California State Senate.

California Senate Bill 1172 would make it illegal for therapists, psychologists, counselors and parents to engage in any kind of “sexual orientation change efforts” against children 18 and younger.


Violators could be subject to arrest, fines, possible jail time.

The bill, which passed out of a legislative committee Tuesday on a 5-3 vote, would also require adults to sign a consent form before they could seek therapy or counseling to change their sexual orientation.

Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute of Sacramento, Calif., pledges to challenge the constitutionality of the measure in the courts, if it passes the Legislature.

“This legislation is a grotesque violation of the rights of parents over their children,” said Dacus, who testified against the bill Tuesday.

He said the bill, which targets reparative therapy, could also lead to parents losing custody of their children to the state if they seek therapy for their youngsters.

“It specifically prohibits any child under the age of 18 who struggles with homosexuality from getting any kind of professional counseling at all, period,” Dacus told CNSNews.com.

“In fact, it also subjects parents to possibly having their children permanently removed from them if it is found that the parents were not accepting of a child’s perception of being homosexual and the parents want the child to get counseling.”

If the parents are not totally accepting of this sexual orientation, then that is deemed abuse and gives the government grounds to permanently take the child from the parents.

The sponsor, Sen. Ted W. Lieu (D-Carson), said his bill helps raise public awareness of “bogus” and “unethical” therapies by mental-health providers who promise to help change a person’s sexual orientation.

“Under the guise of a California license, some therapists are taking advantage of vulnerable people by pushing dangerous sexual orientation-change efforts,” Lieu said Tuesday after the bill passed out of the California Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee.

“These bogus efforts have led in some cases to patients later committing suicide, as well as severe mental and physical anguish. This is junk science and it must stop.”

The bill declares that “there is no evidence that any kind of psychotherapy can cause sexual orientation change.”

It also states that sexual orientation change efforts “pose critical health risks” to lesbian, gay and bisexual people, including: “confusion, depression, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, shame, social withdrawal, suicidality, substance abuse, stress, disappointment, self-blame, decreased self-esteem and authenticity to others, increased self-hatred, hostility and blame toward parents, feelings of anger and betrayal, loss of friends and potential romantic partners, problems in sexual and emotional intimacy, sexual dysfunction, high-risk sexual behaviors, a feeling of being dehumanized and untrue to self, a loss of faith, and a sense of having wasted time and resources.”

Most counseling profession organizations in the state -- including the California Psychological Association, the California Association for Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors and the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapy -- oppose the bill as written, dubbing it an unwarranted intrusion.

"The statutory ban on types of therapy is not the venue and there is very little precedent in state law to make an outright ban on a specific type of therapy," the CPA said in written testimony on the bill.

“The fact that this bill is opposed by many of the professional organizations that normally are quite liberal on homosexuality, I think, indicates how extreme this legislation is,” said Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for cultural studies at the Family Research Council.

“It really flies in the face of a fundamental ethical principle within the counseling profession, which is – the autonomy of the client in determining the goals for treatment,” he said.

In any other context, other than homosexuality, that principle would be considered sacrosanct. But somehow these state legislators feel that they can run roughshod over it when it comes to people who experience unwanted same-sex attractions,” Sprigg told CNSNews.com .

Peter LaBarbera, executive director of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, said the bill’s passage would be “a tragedy.”

“Not all ex-gays go through reparative therapy,” LaBarbera said. “There are many people who have a religious experience, they change through Christ.

This is not the only way that people change. But this is a way that some people have found help. And it’s an outrage that California is now stepping in and making it more and more difficult to get this help.”

The National Association on Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, which opposes the bill, did not provide comment to CNSNews.com for this story.

The bill will now go for a vote by the full California Senate.

SOMMES-NOUS DES MUTANTS IRRADIÉS DANS UNE MATRICE TECHNO-SPIRITUELLE ? P.1



Traduit par J

Par Zen Gardner

Cela pourrait expliquer les jets de radiation en provenance de Fukushima et autres menaces nucléaires en suspens, les scanners d'aéroport, HAARP et ses affiliés, l'abus massif de scans médicaux et de sécurité, la prolifération de la diffusion des champs électromagnétique.

Ils nous veulent mutés. C'est pré-planifié.

Et ils veulent juste la bonne quantité de cellules abêties comme autant d'énergie à portée de main pour un Cerveau Mondial amélioré. C'est-à-dire, “La Matrice”.

Science-Fiction ? Je vous ne vous raconte pas des blagues. Nous l'avons suspecté depuis le début, et remarqué beaucoup d'évidence circonstancielles, mais cela va grandement surprendre.




Le plan pour la Matrice, au plus près du réel

Nous savons jusqu'à un certain point que la Matrice est définitivement réelle. Nous avons trouvé cela en reliant point par point une quantité gigantesque d'information à travers des années de recherches. Quelques-unes sont cachées dans un site ordinaire comme s'ils veulent qu'on les obtiennent et qu'on s'y habitue. D'autres informations sont tellement accablantes qu'ils ne veulent pas que cela soit mis à la lumière parce que cela expose avec clarté leur agenda Illuministe arrogant et la perfidie de leurs sombres intentions eugéniques contrôlantes.

La fin de partie d'un monde étouffant sous la seule religion du “pensée de groupe” comme prédit par plusieurs et prévue par les Contrôleurs en devenir, ne va pas juste arriver en se déclarant. Ces types-là idolâtrent la science et la technologie de toutes sortes comme les outils qui amèneront à la vie leur agenda satanique, et les ont activement utilisés pendant des décennies.

Main dans la main, Orwell et Huxley ont prédit, il y a plus de 60 ans, la domination technologique et un monde altéré pharmacologiquement.


Cela est tout près.

Mais achevé en aucunes manières. Il y a en bien davantage à leur agenda scientifique de domination mondiale, bien davantage.



Les sous-fifres élitistes de Bush en Version 2.0

Vous pouvez prendre n'importe quelle type d'administration ou de hiérarchie d'entreprise.

Souvenez-vous, l'ennemi du genre humain n'a aucune empathie

Planifier et programmer pour une ultime prise de pouvoir à l'échelle planétaire est intrinsèque à leur genre sans-coeur et pernicieux. Ce sont des machines virtuellement possédées exécutant l'ordre de leurs maîtres. Projets « classés secrets » se mêlent avec les « tink tank » Illuminati, les instituts et fondations, à découvert et secrètes, du monde entier, tous à la solde et guidés par cette même élite nantie et manipulante. Le publique s'assied d'un air hébété tout en pensant que la science est à la recherche de voies meilleures pour servir le genre humain.

Ouais, comme McDonalds nous sert mieux son bétail avec un nouvel emballage sur un petit pain différent. Meuhhh.

Ils ne se soucient pas plus de l'humanité que du « derrière d'un moucheron ». Nous sommes de la chair à pâté. Nous sommes rien moins que du bétail vivant qu'ils perçoivent comme d'embêtantes grenouilles qu'on peut écraser sur l'autoroute.

Quand vous comprenez leur mentalité inhumaine vous commencez à comprendre la profondeur réelle de ce qui se passe.

Mais pendant que notre puissance d'esclave continue de faire fonctionner leur machines, ceux qui survivent à leur campagne de dépopulation sont vus comme une source potentielle de combustible pour allimenter un monde future très étrange et occulte qu'ils imaginent.

Ils l'appelent « illuminé ». Le « plus grand bien » pour eux… c'est eux… et un monde qui satisfasse cette même élite propre et peut importe le genre de desseins occultes qui conviennent à leurs lubies. Pendant que des forces plus insidieuses encore sont derrières eux, c'est la poussée égoiste sous-jacente. Et cela n'a aucune importance comment ils essaient de les dissimuler, cela infiltre toutes choses.



Vitrail fabien. On peut lire sur l'inscription au dessus : « Remouler cela au plus près du désir des cœurs »

Rencontrez les architectes de la Matrice d'aujourd'hui

H.G. Wells n'était pas un simple auteur futuriste, mais un infame ingénieur social, un eugéniste, partisan de la répression et du contrôle, et un initié du réseau Illuministe. Ses ouvrages sont basés sur des informations occultes de l'intérieur sur la manipulation sociale, à l'instar de ses collègues fabiens Orwell et Huxley, George Bernard Shaw et les autres.

Eux et les autres de ces « programmés » étaient tous bien au courant qu'en créant la forme et l'idée dans la conscience collectice cela allait littéralement marquer le plan des futurs mouvements dans la réalité pour une humanité chimiquement altérée, propagandisée et frappée de stupeur.

Dans les mots de Fritz Springmeier :

Non seulement H.G. Wells prédit la guerre moderne, le bombardement de Londres, la bombe atomique, la Ligue des nations, les chasseurs furtifs au dessus de l'Iraq, le vol spatial et d'inombrables autres détails du futur, loin en avance de leur éventuelle réalisation, traçant aussi bien en détail comment un Nouvel Ordre Mondial pourrait être créé, mais il y participa en provoquant la mise en place de ces événements.

Maintenant regardez aux titres de ses livres « Anticipation » et « Les choses à venir » et de la manière qu'ils on été écris, et cela est évident qu'il conditionne psychologiquement le publique à accepter les étapes du Nouvel Ordre Mondial comme s'ils étaient l'évidence même.

H.G. crut fermement à l'eugénie raciale pour tuer les races inférieures et les bouches inutiles. Il crut que l'État devrait éduquer le peuple et contrôler leurs esprits pour servir docilement l'État. Il crut dans l'ingéniérie sociale. Il était opposé à ce qu'il soit permis aux chrétiens d'enseigner à leurs enfants à propos de Dieu, et la tolérance religieuse.



Le Cerveau Mondial et « L'Esprit Unifié »

H. G. Wells est plutôt réputé pour son ouvrage « Cerveau Mondial » – situé au-delà du concept Orwellien d'un nouvel ordre mondial, qui a résonné partout chez les élitistes et les sociétés secrètes dans tout les âges.

SourceWells reconnu que nous avons maintenant commencé à échelonner « les idées préliminaire pour le contrôle d'un monde fédéré tel que les communications, la santé, l'argent, les ajustements économiques, et la suppression du crime. » Mais « toutes ces idées sur l'unification de l'entreprise humaine dépend ultimement pour sa réalisation sur ce que le genre humain aura un esprit unifié pour ce travail » (Wells, 1938 p.57,58). L 'émergence de cet esprit unifié devait être le résultat de la création et de la fonction essentielle d'un Cerveau Mondial. « Ce devrait être les débuts concrets d'un véritable esprit planétaire » (Wells-Doubleday Memo, [1938] p.8). En 1939 il retourna à ce qu'il appela “mon refrain: ‘Nous avons besoin d'un Cerveau Mondial,’” et à son “insistance que la création d'une plus grande superstructure mentale pour réorienter l'esprit du monde est un proposition tout à fait praticable” (Wells, 1942c p.158).

C'est du sérieux. Commencez-vous à voir la matrice prendre forme? Ça devient de pire en pire. Mais la mentalité sous-jacente de l'élite.

Sachez cela.

Comment la matrice moderne devient réalité

La combinaison d'influences franc-maçonique et théosophistes suivante à l'intérieur des « think tank » peuvent sembler sans queue ni têtes. Mais si vous alliez construire un plan pour contrôler et dominer l'homme moderne évolué vous feriez mieux d'y intégrer toutes les ciences, incluant la technologie, la pharmacologie et même les sciences occultes et métaphysiques, pour faire en sorte que votre plan est socialement, scientiquement et spirituellement compréhensible.

Après tout, nous sommes fondamentalement des êtres spirituels et c'est l'aspect le plus important qu'ils ont besoin d'exploiter.

C'est aussi ce qu'ils craignent.

Et c'est exactement ce dont ces ingénieurs socials psychopathes sont au courant depuis des millénaires. Chaque génération de ceux-ci les appelèrent « les puissances sataniques », réinventant et améliorant leurs techniques, lesquelles sont prévues d'être à son point culminant dans ce dernier grand âge scientifique s'accélérant follement devant nos yeux.

Le public n'a jamais su auparavant que l'élite franc-maçon-théosophiste a formé un « think tank » académique en 1940 avec le but exprimé de canaliser toutes les recherches académiques vers leurs objectifs. Ce « laboratoire à idée » était l'Institut pour l'Éducation Intégrative. Le comité de directeur inclus la famille des directeurs des Théosophistes aussi bien les professeurs bon chic bon genre de Harvard, John Hopkins, etc. Leur publication phare de 1940 de leur journal académique « Courrants Principaux dans la Pensée Moderne » mentionne ouvertement cet objectif conspiratoire franc-maçonique et à un point tel que le journal mentionne même que la plupart des professeurs sont plus dangereux que les nazis!

How's dem apples?



Intégrer la thésophie, la physique et gouvernement mondial

Il y a un plan à long terme, réfléchi et graduel, comme il s'agit de la technique illuministe fabienne. Pendant que plusieurs ne peuvent encore croire qu'il y a un « ils » là haut qui régissent à peu près toutes choses dans notre monde, vu de haut c'est de loin plus compréhensible et scientifiquement métaphysique que quiconque pourrait oser l'imaginer.

---------------------------------------------------------

Ici un peu d'histoire :

Le fondateur de ce complexe franc-maçon-théosophiste de recherche éducationnel qui contrôle les recherces académique aux État-Unis était le magnat du bois de charpente Julius Stulman. Le post-scriptum de son livre « Le futur du genre humain en évolution » est une longue déclaration faite par le président « libéral » de l'université, Laurence Bolling — expert en diplomatie et responsable politique de haut niveau, documentant l'influence de ce think tank.

La suite à venir...

SOMMES-NOUS DES MUTANTS IRRADIÉS DANS UNE MATRICE TECHNO-SPIRITUELLE ? P.2


En 1965, Stulman créa l’Institut Mondial en collaboration et sur l’ordre du gouvernement des États-Unis, l’Institut pour Étude Avancée à Princeton, et les Nations Unies. Cette information est détaillé par la président Bolling. Le rôle exprimé de l’Institut Mondial était de superviser la direction de la technologie pour le monde et il était localisé au UN Plaza. Son plan politique principal était l’actuel plan pour la Matrice publié en 1975 et édité par le théoricien de systèmes, plannifcateur global Ervin Laszlo. Il s’agit de l’arrière plan pour ce véritable plan de matrice qui devient maintenant réalité — comme généreusement promu par le livre de Laszlo «Macroshift». (2001). Ibid.

Humanisme cosmique, Radio-eugénisme et Techno-spiritualité

Regardez comment ils appliquent leur théories scientifiques pour contrôler l’évolution sociale. Odieux.

Le hautement loué manifeste «Humanisme cosmique» de 1965, par l’Institut pour l’Éducation Intégrative, du professeur de philosophie de la science Oliver L. Reiser. Le livre de Reiser «Philosophie mondiale» de 1945 était considéré par Einstein pour être le meilleur plan pour une théorie du champ unifié. En 1936, Reiser a promu et initialisé le radio-eugénisme dans le Journal de l’Hérédité. En 1945, Reinser découvrit l’essai du fondateur de l’Institut Mondial Julius Stulman «La théorie de l’énergie appliqué aux relations humaines





Qu’est-ce que le Radio-eugénisme?


Vous souvenez-vous le carburant à cellules dans La Matrice? De manière à devenir une source pleinement accommodante pour le carburant pour leur cerveau mondial au sens littéral nous avons besoin d’être littéralement mutés. Tous pour le bien commun bien sur. Pensez — les scanners, Fukushima et les centaine d’autres bombes nucléaires à retardement appelés réacteurs. Alors lancez-y HAARP pour l’amplification et la manipulation. Ça va y aller...

En 1936, le Dr. Reiser introduisit and promu le concept du radio-eugénisme dans le scientifique Journal de l’Hérédité. Cela a entraîné les applications de la radiation pour l’évolution. En 1945, le Dr. Reiser était impressionné par l’article du fondateur du think tank Julius Stulman appelé «L'énergie appliqué aux relations humaines.» Dans la publication de 1965 de l’ «Humanisme cosmique» qui est hautement encensé par l’Institut pour l’Éducation Intégrative de Stulman, le concept du radio-eugénisme est promu en synthèse avec le concept de résonnance harmonique non-double. Le Dr. Reiser mentionne nous avons appris de Hiroshima et de Nagasaki que non seulement la radiotion cause une importante destruction mais de même que ceux qui survivent au «baptême par le feu» ont des enfants avec de sévères anomalies congénitales. Il mentionne alors que malheureusement il s’agit de comment fonctionne l’évolution et qu’avec un peu de chance et avec l’application adéquate de la résonnance harmonique de la radiation alors une nouvelle société humaine et une nouvelle «conscience planétaire» sera achevé. La «Conscience planétaire» du Dr. Reiser est basé sur l’utilisation de la radiation de la ionosphère, l’amplifiant avec une haute technologie, et l’appliquant globalement pour causer des mutations. L’effet est d’achevé non seulement une plus haute réalité dimensionnelle mais d’exploiter l’énergie au point zéro.

En 1975 Dr. Reiser publia «Humanisme Cosmique et Unité Planétaire» (Gordon & Beech) comme partie d'une série pour l'Institut Mondiale. Ce livre évoque à plusieurs reprises le plan pour une conscience planétaire, «la matrice», et affirme qu'en tant que concept, cela se rapproche de la proposition de 1936 de H.G. Wells faite à l'Institut royal franc-maçonique pour les Affaires Internationnales, la source pour le Concile des Relations Étrangères. H.G. Wells n'était pas juste un écrivain de science-fiction, il était la tête des services secret pendant la Première Guerre Mondiale et il était le porte-parole pour les responsables politique de l'élite mondiale. Le Cerveau Mondial était inspiré par le concept Néo-Platonicien de la matrice exposé par le Professeur John Ruskin, une source d'inspiration favorite pour l'Institut Royal des Affaires Internationnales.




Intelligence Artificielle

Alors, qu’est-ce qui se passe?

Il s’agit d’ingénierie génétique et de techno-interférence, aussi connu sous le nom de transhumanisme forcé, à l’échelle mondiale sans la connaissance ou le consentement du genre humain. Si ces conclusions sont vraies ou même proche de la vérité, c’est rien de moins qu’une guerre massive, sinon vaine, contre la vie naturelle et la vraie conscience. Une autre invasion alien parmi nous tentant de créer une autre race réduite à l’esclavage. Il y eut une guerre d’origine spirituelle en cours depuis des millénaires. Les imbéciles jouant leurs rôles dans cette joute générationnelle sont esclaves de leur avidité et arroguance pour participer dans une telle folie, avec de terribles conséquences sur l’humanité. Pendant que cela semble possiblement coincider avec ce qui se faisait il y a longtemps dans notre ingénierie génétique originale, nous n’avons en aucune façon à souscrire à une telle insanité. La plupart vont mourir, pensent-ils, tandis que ceux qui auront mutés facilement seront cultivés en batterie comme une sorte de nouvelle race. Wow, comment peut-on devenir aussi fou?! Mais ils sont entrain de le faire !!!




Mais pourquoi?

Le livre de 1975 évoque le plan, La Matrice, à maintes reprises et affirme bien en évidence que les humains seront en «Techno-Samadhi» comme les «neuroblastes» et les «Tubes électroniques» pour la nouvelle «Terre-Mère». Selon ce plan, l’embryon de cette mère est dans le milieu de la terre et comme un oeuf, les humains et l’environnement étant ce dont il se nourira comme d’une énergie pour l’évolution de la Matrice. Le Radio-eugénisme continu d’être ouvertement promu par l’Institut Mondial — sauf qu’il est désormais appellé «orthosynthèse». Dans la «Techno-Samadhi», une personne ne respire ni ne pense mots — ils sont accrochés à un système de satellites et utilisés comme énergie afin que les Théosophistes-francmaçons puissent créer «LES LENTILLES COSMIQUES» qui contrôlent et manipulent de plus haute dimensions d’espace-temps.

Cela est tout détaillé dans «Humanisme Cosmique et Unité Planétaire»

L’essentiel de ce plan est de créer une nouvelle religion globalel’Humanisme Cosmique (désormais appellé «transhumanisme») — ou de façon générale, techno-spiritualité. Picknett et Prince ont exposés ce plan et cela est pleinement corroboré par Reiser qui déclare ouvertement qu’une nouvelle religion doit être promu. Le professeur David F. Noble, ancien élève du ? Massachusetts Institute of Technology, dans son analyse académique des Franc-maçons, «La Religion de la Technologie», a retrouvé la trace de cette religion jusqu’au neuvième siècle après Jésus-Christ.

Je sais... Putain de merde!




Je n’ai pas lu tout ces livres ni n’ai vu personne discréditer ces assertions et conclusions ni leur références. Tout ce que je sais c’est que ça résonne. Ça frappe fort. Nous nous heurtons à une cabale de pseudo-scientifiques métaphysiques et occultistes. Et ils savent exactement ce qu’ils font, peut importe à quel point cela est vrai.

Connait ton ennemi c’est tout ce que je peux dire. Et enquête. Mais ils sont bien réels.

Ils sont entrain de tripoter sous tout les angles les manipulations scientifiques et spirituelles autant qu’ils peuvent pour manipuler et contrôler l’humanité et la planète terre. Encore une fois cela explique les effets de mutations des nano particules dans les chemtrails, la libération délibérée de la radiation et la prolifération des engins radiactifs, le bombardement du champs électromagnétique des téléphones cellulaires, les lignes à haute tension, et du wi-fi aux compteurs intelligents jusqu’au HAARP, les tours GWEN et l’électro-radioation des satellite, l’eau empoissoné dont on ne s’inquiète pas, les vaccins, les médicaments et la nourriture génétiquement modifié.

Je sais. Ce sont de vraies ordures.

Restez éveillés. Restez conscients. Et manifestez la vraie réalité. Sachez cela. La leur s’effondre devant la face de l’Amour et de la Vérité. Certainement. Ne craignez pas cette absurdité, sachez seulement ses racines égoistes et ses objectifs occultes. C’est basé dans une autre réalité qui n’est pas la notre. (???) ce n’est pas à vous de la supporter. Nous sommes des êtres éternels libres en court de réalisation! Mais c’est important que nous sachions ce qu’ils ont l’intention de faire. Chaque aspect de la chose, malgré le fait que cela soit bizarre ou dérangeant. (???) Transcendez, simplement. Continuez à la démasquer. Ces infections nuisibles et abominables n’aiment pas la lumière du soleil. Lancez y quelques gouttes de jus de citron là dedans et mettez un pansement. Zut.

Brillez les gens! Ce sont des monstres et ils ne peuvent pas tenir devant les rayons du soleil de l’Amour et de la Vérité.

Avec amour. Zen.

ARE WE IRRADIATED MUTANTS IN A TECHNO-SPIRITUAL MATRIX?

This might just explain the Fukushima spraydiation and other pending nuclear threats, airport scanners, HAARP and its affiliates, the massive abuse of medical and security scans, the EMF broadcast proliferation, GMOs, vaccines, chemtrails, fluoride and the rest.

They want us mutated. It’s pre-planned.

And they want just the right amount of dumbed-down handy fuel cells for an upgraded occult World Brain. I.e. “The Matrix”.

SciFi? I kid you not. We’ve suspected this all along and seen a lot of circumstantial evidence, but this is going to blow all that out of the water.


The Very Real Plan for the Matrix

We know the matrix to some extent is definitely real. We’ve found that out by dot connecting massive amounts of information derived through years of research. Some is hidden in plain site as if they want us to get it and get used to it. Other information is so damning they don’t want it to come to light because it exposes with such clarity their arrogant, Illuminist agenda and the perfidy of their dark, controlling eugenic intentions.

This is just such information.

The endgame of a stifling one world group-think religion as predicted by many and forecast by the would-be Controllers is not going to come about by just declaring it. These guys worship science and technology of all sorts as the tools for bringing their Satanic agenda to life and have been busily using them for decades. And they know humanity needs to be “prepared and educated” as well as fearfully herded into the next phase of this agenda.

Hand in hand, Orwell and Huxley predicted technological domination and a pharmacologically altered new world over 60 years ago.

Close.

But not at all complete by any means. There is a lot more to their scientific world domination agenda, lots more.


Bush 2.0 Version of lower level elitist minions. You could pick any administration or corporate hierarchy.

Remember, The Enemy of Mankind Has No Empathy

Planning and scheming for an ultimate global takeover is intrinsic to their heartless, wicked kind. They’re virtually possessed machines carrying out their masters’ bidding. “Classified” scientific ventures intermingle with Illuminati think tanks, institutes and foundations, overt and covert, worldwide, all bought and paid for and guided by these same monied manipulating elites. The public sits numbly by thinking “science” is finding better ways to serve mankind.

Yeah, like McDonald’s serves cattle better, with new packaging on a different bun. Mooo.

They don’t care a gnat’s ass about humanity. We are fodder. We are less than living cattle which they view as annoying frogs on the highway to be run over. When you understand their inhuman mindset you start to understand the real depths of what’s going on.

But besides our temporary slave power to keep their machines working, those of us who survive their depopulation drive are being viewed as a possible fuel source to power a very weird future occult world they envision.

They call it “illuminated”. The “greater good” to them…is them…and a world that caters to these self same elites and whatever occult designs suit their whims. While even more insidious forces are behind them, that’s the underlying self-serving thrust. And it doesn’t matter how they try to disguise it, it permeates everything.



Fabian window art. The top reads “Remould It Nearer To The Hearts Desire”

Meet the Modern Architects of the Present Day Matrix

H.G. Wells was no simple “futuristic” author, but an infamous social engineer, eugenicist, proponent of repression and control, and insider to the Illuminist network. His works were based on inside occult, social manipulative information, much like fellow Fabians Orwell and Huxley, George Bernard Shaw and others.

They and the others of these schemes were all well aware that creating the form or idea in the collective conscious literally “blueprints” future moves into that reality for a chemically altered, propagandized and dumbstruck humanity.

In the words of Fritz Springmeier:

Not only did H.G. Wells predict modern warfare, the bombing of London, atom bombs, the League of Nations, stealth fighters over Iraq, space flight and countless other details of the future, far in advance of their eventual happening, as well as mapping out in detail how a New World Order could be created, but he participated in causing events to take place.

Now look at the titles of his books “Anticipation” and “Things to Come” and the way they were written, and it is evident that he is psychologically conditioning the public to accept the stages of the New World Order as if they were self-evident.

H.G. strongly believed in racial eugenics to kill the inferior races and useless eaters. He believed the state should educate people and control their minds to obediently serve the state. He believed in social engineering. He was opposed to Christians being allowed to teach their children about God, and religious toleration. Source



The World Brain and “Unified Mind”

H.G. Wells is actually most noted for his work “World Brain”–a beyond Orwellian concept of a new world order that has resonated throughout elitist and secret society teachings for ages.

Wells acknowledged that we have now begun to frame “preliminary ideas for a federal world control of such things as communications, health, money, economic adjustments, and the suppression of crime.” But “all of these ideas of unifying mankind’s affairs depend ultimately for their realisation on mankind having a unified mind for the job” (Wells, 1938 p. 57, 58). The emergence of that unified mind was to be the result of the creation and the essential function of a World Brain. “It would be the concrete beginnings of an actual world mind” (Wells-Doubleday Memo, [1938] p.8). In 1939 he returned to what he called “my refrain: ‘We need a World Brain,’” and to his “insistence that the creation of a greater mental superstructure to reorient the mind of the world is an entirely practicable proposal” (Wells, 1942c p.158). Source

That’s serious stuff. Starting to see the matrix take shape? It gets worse, much worse. But this is the underlying mindset of the elite.

Know that.

How the Modern Matrix Came Into Reality

The following combination of Freemasonic and Theosophist influences within academic think tanks may sound preposterous. But if you were going to construct a plan to control and domineer modern evolving man you had better integrate every science, including technology, pharmacology and even the occult and metaphysical, to make sure your plan is socially, scientifically and spiritually comprehensive.

After all, we are fundamentally spiritual beings and that’s the most important aspect they need to harness.

It’s also what they fear.

And this is exactly what these insane social engineers have been up to for millennia. Each generation of these call them “Satanic forces” reinvents and improves their control techniques, which is scheduled to be culminated in this last great scientific age madly accelerating before our eyes.

Never before has the public known that the Freemason-Theosophist elite formed an academic think tank in 1940 with the expressed goal of channeling all academic research toward their goals.

This Theosophist-Freemason think tank was the Institute for Integrative

Education. The board of directors included the family of the directors of the Theosophists as well as ivy league professors from Harvard, Johns Hopkins, etc. Their 1940 flagship issue of their academic journal “Main Currents in Modern Thought” openly states this Freemason conspiratorial goal and at one point the journal even states that most professors are more dangerous than Nazis! Source

How’s dem apples?



Integrating Theosophy, Physics and World Governance

Theirs is a deliberate, gradual long term plan, as is the technique of the Illuminist Fabians. While many still can’t believe there’s a “they” out there engineering most everything in our world, on top of that it’s way more comprehensive and scientifically metaphysical than anyone would dare to realize.

Here’s some history:

The founder of this Freemason-Theosophist Educational-Research Complex that secretly controlled U.S. academic research was Lumber Magnate Julius Stulman. The postscript of his book “Evolving Mankind’s Future” is a long statement by “liberal” University President Laurence Bolling — a high level statecraft policy maker, documenting the influence of this think tank.

In 1965 Stulman created the World Institute in collaboration and at the behest of the U.S. Government, the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, and the United Nations. This information is detailed by President Bolling. The expressed role of the World Institute was to oversee the direction of technology for the world and it was located at UN Plaza. It’s main policy plan was the actual plan for the Matrix published in 1975 and edited by systems theorist, global planner Ervin Laszlo. This is background for that Real Matrix Plan that is now coming into reality — as “liberally” promoted by Laszlo’s book “Macroshift.” (2001). Ibid.

Cosmic Humanism, Radio-Eugenics and Techno-Spirituality
Watch how they apply their scientific theories to controlling social evolution. Dastardly.

The Institute for Integrative Education highly praised Philosophy of Science Professor Oliver L. Reiser’s 1965 manifesto “Cosmic Humanism.” Reiser’s 1945 book “World Philosophy” was considered by Einstein to be the best plan for a unified field theory. In 1936 Reiser had promoted and initiated “radio-eugenics” in the Journal of Heredity. In 1945 Reiser discovered World Institute founder Julius Stulman’s essay, “Energy Theory Applied to Human Relations.”



What is Radio Eugenics?
Remember the fuel cells in The Matrix? In order to become a fully compliant source for fuel for their literal “world brain” we need to be literally mutated. All for the common good of course. Think—scanners, Fukushima and the hundreds of other nuclear time bombs called reactors. Then throw in HAARP for amplification and manipulation. It goes on..

In 1936, Dr. Reiser, introduced and promoted the concept of “radio-eugenics” in the scientific Journal of Heredity. This entails applications of radiation for evolution. In 1945 Dr. Reiser was impressed by think tank founder Julius Stulman’s article called “Applied Energy to Human Relations.” In the 1965 publication of “Cosmic Humanism” that is highly praised by Stulman’s Institute for Integrative Education, the concept of radio-eugenics is promoted in synthesis with the concept of nondual harmonic resonance. Dr. Reiser states that we learned from Hiroshima and Nagasaki that not only does radiation cause massive destruction but that even those who survive “the baptism by fire” have children with severe birth defects. He then states that unfortunately that is how evolution works and that hopefully with the proper applied harmonic resonance of radiation then a new human society and a new “World Sensorium” will be achieved. The “World Sensorium” of Dr. Reiser is based on utilizing the radiation of the ionosphere, amplifying it with high technology, and applying it globally to cause mutations. The effect is to achieve not only a higher dimensional reality but to harness the zero-point energy. [HAARP anyone?]

In 1975 Dr. Reiser publishes “Cosmic Humanism and World Unity” (Gordon and Beech) as part of a series for the World Institute. This book calls the plan for the World Sensorium, “The matrix” several times and states that, in concept, it is closest to H.G. Well’s 1936 proposal for a “World Brain” to the Freemasonic Royal Institute for International Affairs the source for the Council of Foreign Relations. H.G. Wells was not just a science fiction writer, he was the head of British secret intelligence during World War One and he was the mouthpiece for the global elite policy makers. The World Brain was inspired by the NeoPlatonic concept of the matrix outlined by Professor John Ruskin, a favorite source of inspiration for the Royal Institute of International Affairs. Source


“Artificial Intelligence”

So, What’s Going On?

This is genetic engineering and techno-interference, also know as enforced transhumanism, on a global scale without the knowledge or consent of mankind. If these reasons are true or even near to true, it is nothing less than a massive, if futile, war against natural life and true consciousness.

Another alien invasion in our midst attempting to create another enslaved race.

This has been an ongoing war of supernatural origins for millennia. The morons playing out their roles in this generational play are slaves of their greed and arrogance to participate in such a futile folly, with such terrible consequences on humanity. While it seems to possibly parallel what was done long ago in our original genetic engineering, we in no way have to subscribe to such insanity.

Most will die, so they think, while the “conveniently mutated” would be cultivated into a submissive battery-like new race.

Wow, how insane can you get?! But they’re doing it!!


But Why?

Try this out for size:

The 1975 book calls the plan, “The Matrix” prominently and repeatedly and states that humans will be in “Techno-Samadhi” as the “neuroblasts” and “Electronic tubes” for the new “World Mother.” According to this plan, the embryo of this mother is in the middle of the earth and like an egg, the humans and the environment are to be fed off as energy for evolution of the Matrix. Radio-Eugenics is still openly promoted by the World Institute — except now it is called “orthosynthesis.”

In “Techno-Samadhi” a person does not breathe or think words — they are hooked up to the satellite systems and used as energy so that the Theosophist-Freemasons can create “THE COSMIC LENS” that controls and manipulates higher dimensional space-time. This is all detailed in “Cosmic Humanism and World Unity” — the ACTUAL PLAN FOR THE MATRIX.

The essence of this plan is to create a new global religion — Cosmic Humanism (now called “transhumanism”) — or in general
techno-spirituality. Picknett and Prince have exposed this plan and it is corroborated fully by Reiser who openly states that a new
religion must be promoted. Former M.I.T. History Professor David F. Noble has traced this religion to the ninth century A.D. in his academic analysis of the Freemasons, “The Religion of Technology.” Prince and Picknett trace it back to ancient Egypt but Reiser openly goes back to Sumeria and Vedic India.

The research of the Freemason-Theosophist Academics is based on RATIO THEORY that promotes the Indo-European SEPARATION OF HEAVEN AND EARTH by HUMAN SACRIFICE and DESTRUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY for the ALL-SEEING EYE.

I know…Holy Shit!


I haven’t read all these books nor have I seen anyone debunk these assertions and findings nor their references. All I know is it resonates.

It hits hard.

We’re up against a cabal of pseudo-scientific metaphysical occultists. And they know exactly what they’re doing, to whatever degree this is true.

Know your enemy is all I can say. And investigate. But they’re real.

They are playing every scientific and spiritual manipulative angle they can to manipulate and control humanity and planet earth.

This explains once again the mutative effects of nano particles in chemtrails, the deliberately released radiation and the proliferation of radioactive devices, EMF bombardment from cell phones, power lines, wi-fi and smart meters to HAARP, GWEN towers and satellite electro-radiation, never mind poisoned water, vaccines, drugs and genetically modified food.

I know. Sick bastards.

Stay awake. Stay aware. And manifest the true reality.

Know this. Theirs is crumbling in the face of Love and Truth. For sure. Don’t fear this insanity, just know its self-serving roots and occult objectives. It’s based in another reality that is not our own.

Shirk it, shunt it, it’s not yours to bear. We are free eternal beings on the course to realization!

But it’s important we know what they’re up to. Every aspect of it, however weird or disturbing. Same old, same old IMO. Just transcend.

Keep on exposing. Harmful, nefarious infections don’t like sunshine. Squirt some lemon juice in there and put a band aid on it.

Damn.

Shine on, people! They’re freaks and can’t stand the sunshine of Love and Truth!

Love. Zen

MENTAL ILLNESS IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF HOSPITALIZATION FOR ACTIVE-DUTY TROOPS




Jae C. Hong/AP


By Bob Brewin 4:04 PM ET

The Defense and Veterans Affairs departments have spent almost $2 billion since 2001 to buy drugs to treat mental illness and post-traumatic stress disorder despite growing evidence some of those drugs exacerbate PTSD symptoms, a Nextgov investigation shows. In addition, military research released this week highlighted that Defense faces what one Army clinician called an epidemic of mental illness.



Despite this vast expenditure on psychotropic drugs since the beginning of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, mental illness ranks as the leading cause of hospitalization for active-duty troops, according to a report published by the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center in the April issue of its Medical Surveillance Monthly Report, released May 14. Mental health disorders stood out as the leading cause of hospitalization of active-duty service members in 2007, 2009 and 2011, the report noted.

AFHSC also reported that troops seeking help for mental health problems ranked third in outpatient visits in all treatment categories, behind unspecified “other” conditions -- which included routine physicals, immunizations and predeployment assessments -- and musculoskeletal injuries during the same time period.

According to the report, the military hospitalized 21,735 active-duty personnel for mental disorders in 2011, a more than 30 percent increase from 2009, when 15,339 troops needed hospital treatment for mental health problems.

Hospitalizations in 2009 jumped 8 percent from the 14,112 troops hospitalized for mental health reasons in 2007.

“The crude hospitalization rate for mental disorders in the Army was approximately 70 percent higher than in the Marine Corps and more than twice as high than in the other services” in 2011, AFHSC said, noting that 13,003 soldiers were admitted to hospitals for mental health treatment that year.

The surveillance center identified 1,890,111 outpatient visits for mental disorders in 2011, or more visits than the number of troop on active duty that year -- 1,425,113 -- indicating multiple visits by individual troops. Outpatient treatment for mental health care in 2011 marked a 21 percent increase over 1,506,671 visits in 2009 and a 37 percent increase over the 946,187 mental disorder outpatient visits in 2007.

An active-duty Army doctor who declined to be identified for publication said the outpatient statistics that AFHSC compiled may be somewhat misleading because many relatively mild mental health conditions increasingly are subject to screening and identification.

But, the “stunning growth in numbers and rates of mental health hospitalizations . . . is undeniable evidence of an unprecedented and arguably unmanageable epidemic that is now threatening the viability of the force,” he wrote in an email.

Treatment Challenges

Top military leaders recently have acknowledged that some of the prescription drugs used to treat mental illness, including second-generation antipsychotic drugs, also known as atypical antipsychotics such as Seroquel and Risperidone, may be exacerbating the problem.

Dr. Jonathan Woodson, assistant secretary of Defense for health affairs, in a Feb. 22 memo on drug use, said, “articles in popular media and the concern of several national and military leaders in recent months have raised the question of whether certain psychoactive medications are inappropriately prescribed for post-traumatic stress disorder.”

In the memo, first reported by Army Times May 3, he noted that 1.4 percent of soldiers and 0.7 percent of Marines on active duty in 2010 -- about 11,000 troops -- received prescriptions for Seroquel. Woodson told military clinicians to use caution when prescribing atypical antipsychotics as sleep aids or to manage irritability and anger. He said military health care providers should prescribe the lowest drug dose possible and recommend “non-medication therapy options” to treat PTSD.

In April, the Army Medical Command warned that the use of benzodiazepine tranquilizers such as Xanax and Valium to treat PTSD could intensify combat stress symptoms and lead to addiction.

Seven months earlier, in September 2011, the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury emphatically warned against their use. In its Co-Occurring Conditions Toolkit, the center said in boldface, “There is evidence against the use of benzodiazepines in PTSD management as it may cause HARM. Strongly recommend against the use of benzodiazepines for treatment of PTSD.”

The Defense center also recommended against the use of Seroquel and another atypical antipsychotic to treat PTSD saying, in boldface, “evidence does NOT support the use of atypical antipsychotics as a monotherapy for PTSD.”

Data provided to Nextgov by the Defense Logistics Agency shows the Defense Department spent $44.1 million on benzodiazepines from October 2001 to March 2012. The Veterans Affairs Department said it spent $72.1 million on benzodiazepines during the same period.

VA told Nextgov in April that it spent $846 million on Seroquel since 2001 and $717 million on Risperidone, another atypical antipsychotic, during the same period.

Defense has spent $14.1 million on Seroquel and $74 million on Risperidone since 2001.

A paper published by VA researchers in August 2011 said Risperidone was no more effective than a placebo in treating PTSD. The Army acknowledged VA’s research in its April 10 policy memo, but the February 2012 Woodson memo made no mention of Risperidone.

The Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, which provides health care for Navy and Marine Corps personnel, told Nextgov in an email that the bureau “concurs with the Army's policy that benzodiazepines are relatively contraindicated and should be avoided in the treatment of PTSD.”

But Shoshona Pilip-Florea, a bureau spokeswoman, said, “there are many scenarios where the judicious prescription of benzodiazepines may be appropriate, [including] when the clinician's assessment and clinical judgment warrant treatment with this class of medications.” She added, “Navy Medicine has not explicitly warned clinicians not to use benzodiazepines to treat patients with PTSD because some of these patients may benefit from treatment with a benzodiazepine based on the clinician's assessment and clinical judgment.”

Jonathan Stock, a spokesman for the Air Force Surgeon General, said the Air Force has not prohibited providers from using benzodiazepines in cases of PTSD. “It is important to note that every medication has associated cautions and contraindications. Prescribing providers are required to understand the contraindications and precautions of the medications they prescribe,” he said.

VA and DLA did not provide details on how many individual doses of benzodiazepines they have purchased since 2001, but they receive substantial bulk discounts. The active-duty Army doctor said this could be as low as $1 dollar per pill, or a total of 116 million doses since 2001, which work out to more than 100 benzodiazepine pills per person on active duty today.

Besides a mental health epidemic, the Army clinician said the Pentagon also faces the epidemic consequences of widespread psychotropic drug use, which military researchers warned about in a 2008 report. It showed that one of 14 members of a 701-man Army infantry battalion had been prescribed anti-anxiety drugs before deployment.

CHILD KIDNAPPING, DRUGGING, AND ENDANGERMENT BY THE GOVERNMENT



Maria,
This is a horror story.

I present this story to you because, though it is an individual case, it is a very articulated example of what goes on in greatnumbers.

In Houston, Child Protective Services tried for years to get their hands on a particular little girl and when they finally did they put the 3 year old on excessive doses of multiple psychotropic 'medications', which caused the girl unimaginable harm.

NOTE: They call the agency Child Protective Services, but in many cases that is not an accurate name for it. As I said, this happens in 'great numbers', so you can expect a follow-up post on this point very soon.

MENTAL HEALTH IN AFRICA: THE ROLE OF THE WPA

Africa is a large continent, prone to strife, especially south of the Sahara. Most of its countries are characterized by low incomes, high prevalence of communicable diseases and malnutrition, low life expectancy and poorly staffed services (1,2). Mental health issues often come last on the list of priorities for policy makers (3). Where mortality is still mostly the result of infectious diseases and malnutrition, the morbidity and disablement due to mental illness receive very little attention from the government. Health in general is still a poorly funded area of social services in most African countries (1) and, compared to other areas of health, mental health services are poorly developed. Indeed, most African countries have no mental health policies, programs or action plans (4,5). In 1988 and 1990, the member states in the African Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) adopted two resolutions to improve mental health services, and each state was expected to formulate mental health policies, programs and action plans. A survey was conducted two years later to see if the countries that had adopted these resolutions had done anything to implement them. Despite some modest achievements, the situation of mental health programs in most countries was found to be unsatisfactory (4). Compelling evidence shows that a large proportion of the global health burden is due to mental disorders, and this proportion is projected to rise in many African countries (6).

In its African Regional Strategy for Mental Health in the year 2000, the WHO emphasizes that populations in the African region are beset by numerous mental and neurological disorders that are a major cause of disability. Furthermore, there is a lack of reliable information systems in most countries. However, some primary observations and estimates can be made:



In many African countries, the most frequent presentation of psychosis is acute or subacute: acute transient psychoses, paranoid psychoses, psychoses resulting from cerebral involvement in infectious diseases, like malaria, typhoid fever or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. These conditions produce only temporary disability, but cause much suffering and can have chronic consequences if not properly treated.

The prevalence of epilepsy is high, largely due to inadequate care at childbirth, malnutrition, malaria and parasitic diseases. Epilepsy is still highly stigmatized, particularly because it is often considered infectious, which leads to the social isolation of the sufferer.

Half of the population of the region is made up of children below age of 15 years. It is estimated that, of those aged 0-9 years, about 3% suffer from a mental disorder. Many children suffer from poor psychosocial development because of neglect by their mothers and other caretakers. Brain damage is one of the main causes of serious mental retardation.

The population of elderly people is still low, with only 3- 4% of the total population aged above 65 years. While the prevalence of dementia is therefore not very high, other brain syndromes, which usually follow an infection or trauma of the central nervous system, are common in the African region.

Many countries in the African region are engulfed in conflicts and civil strife, with the attendant adverse impact on the mental health and well-being of the affected populations, foremost post-traumatic stress disorder.

Alcohol, tobacco and drug related problems are becoming an increasing concern in the region. Many of the countries in Africa are used as transit points for illicit drug trade and these drugs are finding their way into local populations, adding to the indigenous problems associated with cannabis consumption. There is an increased demand for home-brewed beer or locally distilled liquor. In most countries there are no national policies on alcohol or tobacco; consequently, their advertising, distribution and sale are largely uncontrolled.

Increasing poverty, natural disasters, wars and other forms of violence and social unrest are major causes of growing psychosocial problems, which include alcohol and drug abuse, prostitution, street children, child abuse and domestic violence.

HIV infection has added considerably to the psychosocial problems already being experienced in many countries of the region, creating a need for extra support and counseling for those affected and care for their surviving family members, especially children. In parts of southern Africa the prevalence of HIV in the general population exceeds 30% (7) and over 90% of those cases are attributable to heterosexual activity. According to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and WHO estimates, 7 out of 10 people newly infected with HIV in 1998 live in sub-Saharan Africa; among children under 15, the proportion is 9 out of 10. Of all deaths from acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) since the epidemic started, 83% have been in this region. At least 95% of all AIDS orphans have been African. Since the start of the epidemic, an estimated 34 million people living in sub-Saharan Africa have been infected with HIV. Some 11.5 million of those people have already died, a quarter of them children. In Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, current estimates show that over one person in five between the ages of 15 and 40 is living with HIV infection. 1.6 million Zimbabweans have contracted HIV infection since the beginning of the epidemic; 400 thousand of them have developed AIDS, 300 thousand have already died, about 800 people die every week and 2000 get infected every week.

For several years it has been the concern and strategic commitment of the WPA to help the development of psychiatry and mental health care in the regions where they encounter the greatest difficulties in the world, namely sub-Saharan Africa and Central Asia. On that matter the WPA decided to work in close collaboration with WHO for a number of projects, including the WPA program for promoting mental health services in sub-Saharan Africa and Central Asia. The objectives of this program are to strengthen mental health policies and adopting and implementing regional strategies to prompt mental health and prevent mental, neurological and psychosocial disorders and drug abuse-related problems; to reduce disability associated with neurological, mental and psychosocial disorders through community-based rehabilitation, and to reduce the use of psychoactive substances (alcohol, tobacco and other drugs). On a public level, it is the objective of the program to change people's negative perceptions of mental and neurological disorders, to formulate or review existing legislation in support of mental health and the prevention of substance abuse and to provide equitable access to cost-effective mental, neurological and psychosocial care.

Milestones on the road to that overall goal include the achievement of a change in the negative perception of and attitudes to mental disorders by the public as well as the policy makers. People's attitudes are usually influenced by traditional beliefs in supernatural causes and remedies, and this belief system often leads to an unhelpful or health-damaging response to mental illness, stigmatization of mentally ill persons and those who attempt suicide, and reluctance or delay in seeking appropriate care for these problems.

Furthermore, the WPA targets the maximization of the scarce public resources and support of families in the provision of the best possible care for the mentally ill. The fact that mental disorders are among the top ten causes of disability in Africa and the rest of the world, and that their contribution to the overall burden of disease is going to rise, makes a strong case for giving them the attention and resources they need. Policy makers need to stress the cost-benefit ratio of treating persons with mental illness and making them active participants in national economic activities. Patients with mental illness are easily marginalized by the social services, including health care services. Shortage of money, staff and facilities make unequal access to care more likely, but equity is about the way the available resources are distributed, however inadequate.

Another goal of the WPA program is the initiation of mental health policies and their integration in primary health care, the adoption of mental health legislation and securing equity in the provision of mental health services and adequate care for mentally ill through proper funding of those services.

In the early 1990s, only 23% of member states of the African Region of WHO were reported to have a mental health legislation. Mental health legislation in Africa must be brought up to date. The human rights of the mentally ill must be given prominence with relevant legal provisions. What is needed is a broad view of mental illness as a major cause of morbidity and a burden to victims, their families, and society. An integrated mental health policy reduces morbidity and burden by emphasizing primary and secondary prevention and all forms of mental rehabilitative care of the more severely ill. Policy goals may include bringing families with mentally ill members together, encouraging the creation of consumer groups, and developing broader views of rehabilitation.

In January 2001, African leaders of psychiatry were invited by the WPA program for promoting mental health in sub-Saharan Africa and Central Asia to meet in Cairo to discuss the current mental health situation in the continent and agree on a plan of cooperation within the framework of the WHO/WPA collaboration. The meeting was attended by psychiatrists from Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, Ethiopia, Uganda, Nigeria, Sudan, Zimbabwe and Kenya, in addition to three members of the Executive Committee of the WPA, representatives of the World Bank and the President of the World Federation of Mental Health. Several presentations revealed the problems both in services provision and mental health status in Africa (Table ​(Table11). 



 
Table 1

Mental health resources in some African countries (updated September 2000)

While the European Region of the WHO has more than 86 thousand psychiatrists and 280 thousand psychiatric nurses for a population of 840 million, countries in the African Region have only about 1200 psychiatrists and 12,000 psychiatric nurses for a population of about 620 million. The average number of psychiatrists is 9/100,000 population in the European Region and 0.05/100,000 population in the African Region. In several African countries mental health services are provided by psychiatric nurses. For instance, in Ethiopia all psychiatric clinics are run by nurses; they prescribe medications and treat acute conditions.

The WPA recognizes a number of constraints to the development of mental health programs in Africa:

Lack of awareness of the magnitude of the problem.

Lack of a reliable information system. Information on the efficiency and cost of various forms of intervention is needed to permit enlightened planning and allocation of resources. Questions about the prevalence in communities of common disorders of childhood or old age, or about substance use, or about factors associated with the HIV/AIDS pandemic are largely unanswerable in most African countries. Also in the allocation of scarce resources, prioritization is essential. Research is needed to determine the best policy for the particular country concerned, prevailing social and cultural circumstances, the main constraints, and the options for a viable model of care within them.

Insufficient human and financial resources.

Absence of national mental health policies.

Shortage of specialized personnel.

Constant brain drain.

Widespread civil strife and violence. Wars and internecine strife disrupt social and community life and spread hunger, disease and homelessness. Psychological morbidity usually accompanies and outlasts the physical morbidity of war.
Although most African societies are fortunate in still being able to draw on the support of families for the care of the mentally ill, urbanization is becoming more widespread and the system of extended families is breaking down, depriving mental patients from a traditional source of support.

Another challenge in African countries is the role played by traditional healers. Many of them are strongly against any medication intake and therefore constitute an obstacle rather than an asset to mental health care provision. In many cases traditional treatments are characterized by injurious methods. In Nigeria about 20% of patients with mental disorders had previously consulted a traditional healer before consulting a general practitioner or psychiatrist; the corresponding percentage in Egypt is 70% (5). How could this be turned from a challenge to an asset? A policy of integration ought to have among its goals an examination of the nature of traditional practices and a process of isolating and improving the more efficacious and safe components of this form of care. WHO has training packages specifically designed for primary care workers, focusing on such conditions as depression, anxiety, somatization disorders and substance abuse.

An equivalent tool for traditional healers could be considered.

In view of the above-mentioned challenges and the ambitious endeavors for the future, African leaders of psychiatry have agreed to create the African Association of Psychiatry and Allied Professions, in an attempt to coordinate and join efforts in analyzing, planning and promoting the situation of mental health and mental health care in Africa. All the participants in the above-mentioned meeting in Cairo agreed about the importance of initiating this Association, despite the difficulties existing, especially in communication. It was considered essential:

to create a network for collecting and disseminating relevant information in the fields of psychiatry and mental health;

to make contacts with policy makers (especially ministers of health) with the help of WHO;

to associate French and Portuguese speaking African psychiatrists and to encourage regional meetings in West Africa;

to maintain close liaison with the respective ministers of health, especially before they go to Geneva for the World Health Assembly;

to collect information about national mental health programs and legislation, with the help of the World Bank (mapping mental health needs in Africa);

to support training activities, especially by disseminating WPA educational programs;

to encourage the creation of national psychiatric associations and their affiliation to the WPA (Kenyan, Sudanese, and Ethiopian associations are willing to join the WPA);

to organize scientific meetings within regional and international scientific activities to bring forward the mental health concerns of the continent;

to find contacts with expatriate African psychiatrists, especially if they have an association, in order to help their counterparts working in the country of origin;

to encourage the help given to academic libraries in Africa;

to encourage and facilitate the attendance of African psychiatrists in African meetings.

REACHING OUT TO BEHAVIORAL HEALTH RESOURCES

By taniameireles2
– May 8, 2012Posted in: Behavioral Health, Wounded Warriors



May is Mental Health Awareness Month and was created to increase awareness about symptoms and treatments for various psychological health concerns and reduce stigma in seeking help. According to the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE), psychological health is more than how we think, feel and act. It helps determine our ability to cope with stress, relate to the people in our lives and make day-to-day choices. Stigma prevents many Service members, veterans, and families from seeking help. However, leaders at all levels, chaplains, medical personnel, family members and local community members perform a key role in helping Service members maintain psychological health.

There are many resources available to help support the psychological health needs of those within the military community. These resources are designed to inform Service members, veterans and families about how to maintain psychological health, cope with concerns and access care:

Families and caregivers need support as well to avoid compassion fatigue. In order to help others, caregivers must take care of themselves. For Real Warriors Campaign helpful tips on building resilience see below:
  • Focus on the positive impact of what you are doing
  • Talk to your colleagues/family for support
  • Set boundaries for yourself
  • Stay physically fit
  • Avoid comparing yourself with others
  • Be patient with yourself
  • Find tools for resilience

Resources for families and caregivers are also available:

Utilize these resources to start a discussion about psychological health for yourself or someone you know. For more resources or information, trained health professionals are available at the DCoE Outreach Center 24/7 by phone, email or live chat. The National Resource Directory also provides additional resources at the national, state and local levels.

SEEKING PROMPT CARE FOR BRAIN INJURIES IS ESSENTIAL TO MAKING A FULL RECOVERY

A recent article published in the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer written by the Martin Army Community Hospital (MACH) Public Affairs Office explores recognizing, treating, tracking and reducing stigma in relation to traumatic brain injuries and concussions this Brain Injury Awareness Month.

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month

By MAJ Christopher Colster, MACH Public Affairs


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been called the “signature wound” of America’s current wars. The rate of combat-related brain injuries in Service members returning from war is higher than in previous conflicts. The U.S. military estimates 144,000-plus Service members in the last decade have suffered from some type of TBI, either as a result of combat operations or by accidents in training.

The medical definition of TBI is a disruption in brain function caused by a blow or jolt to the head, or an injury that penetrates the lining of the brain. Not all blows to the head result in injury.

A Department of Defense study reports more than 30,000 Service members have been diagnosed with TBI since 2000; of these more than 25,000 were diagnosed with mild TBI or concussion.

The TBI Specialty Clinic at Martin Army Community Hospital has screened and treated more than 1,700 patients for TBI since May 2008.

March is designated National Brain Injury Awareness Month.



“TBI is described by many as one of the leading invisible scars of war,” said Col. Timothy Lamb, Fort Benning’s MEDDAC [Medical Department Activity] commander, “and we have made great progress, but there is still much to do in this area of care. We must be persistent with an aggressive focus of awareness though concussion identification, evaluation, education, treatment and continued research. We must continue to develop resilience along with coping skills and encourage help-seeking behavior for our Soldiers and Families.”

TBI is classified along a spectrum from mild to severe. Mild TBI, the most common type, is more commonly known as a concussion. A concussion is like having your “bell rung” or being knocked out for a few minutes. A concussion or mild TBI can be difficult to detect, but if identified early is easily treatable and recovery is quick. More severe types of TBI can lead to coma and death.

While explosions are a leading cause of TBI for active-duty military personnel in combat environments, the majority of these are concussions and most Soldiers do not suffer long-term effects. The leading causes of TBI in noncombat environments are falls, motor vehicle crashes, being struck by an object and assault. Doctors note that the Fort Benning population is especially prone to TBI because of its training mission that includes Modern Army Combatives and parachute training. Just as in a deployed environment, seeking prompt care early is essential to making a full recovery.

Treating a TBI patient is challenging, said a clinical neuropsychologist.

“Each patient presents a study in and of themselves,” said Dr. Marlin Wolf. “It’s like peeling back the layers of an onion, treating symptoms.” Soldiers injured in a blast while in combat are likely to have other conditions. For example, the patient may also have combat stress or depression associated with a return from deployment. “It is very challenging, in these situations, to determine what symptoms are due to the concussion and which symptoms are due to the combat stress or depression.”

TBI can also be caused by multiple traumas, rather than just a single event. In years past, a typical Soldier would drive on with the mission after a mild concussion. The Soldier would continue to sustain further injuries until they presented for treatment.

Today, specific training is being provided to all Soldiers for awareness, and to ensure that we have an educated, trained force to provide early recognition, treatment and tracking of concussive injuries in order to protect warrior health.

MACH’s TBI clinic is designed to address mild to moderate TBI. The symptoms it encounters include disorientation, headaches, dizziness, balance difficulties, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, irritability, gaps in memory, sleep problems, or attention and concentration problems.

“The key to success,” Wolf said, “is the integrated approach. Our clinic is a team, dedicated to getting a Soldier back into the fight.”

The TBI clinic employs specialists in pain management, neurology, speech, behavioral health, occupational and physical therapists, to name a few. Care is coordinated by an experienced nurse case manager who follows a patient throughout his or her care. Soldiers generally stay in their unit while they attend their appointments and therapy.

Soldiers are sometimes afraid to seek treatment because they fear being stigmatized or of being found “unfit” for duty.

At Fort Benning’s TBI Clinic, 85 percent of Soldiers treated are fully returned to duty within 90 days. “Other issues, such as PTSD, depression or Family issues present a more complicated problem,” said Dr. Peter Szostak of the TBI Clinic, “and it’s sometimes difficult to determine what is causing what.” Symptoms closely mirror those of post-traumatic stress disorder and the two conditions often occur at the same time.

Most traumatic brain injuries are mild and, if treated promptly, result in full recovery with no long-term physical or mental effects. Seeking prompt medical care is important to recovery.

Soldiers and family members should talk with their primary care physician for evaluation or a referral to the TBI specialty clinic.

CHRISTIAN CONFERENCE ADDRESSES EATING DISORDERS, BODY IMAGE, SEXUAL ABUSE AND TRAUMA

How the Jesuit order and psychiatric experts control the masses by all their new disorder programs. To know more about their solution, who as nothing to do with christianity where peoples when they come to Christ as the possibility to change their life if they  repent and obey to his laws, please check this link http://pul.se/July-7th-2010-Early-Edition-of-Eating-Disorder-Hope-Newsletter-just-posted_Eating-Disorders-lrp6vCSEMjj,7vHPzb2n1xKE .  These last years, they've created a lot of new disorder programs to be able to take the control of each way of our life, like food control, what we can eat or not, what we can think or not, what we can do or not, etc. Everything is under the new international rules of laws and peoples can be send in prison or re-education program if he dont't conform his thinking to their view. This new global agenda wants only one thing from each of us : OBEY OBEY OBEY!!! 

You will find what is their solution they want for each of us : "Workshop for Professionals. An Inside Look: Working with the Resistant Eating Disorder Patient and the Pharmacological Treatments for Addictive Disorders". They want everyone under their control using different "treatments" to achieve their goals. This spiritual war is everywhere, in all domains. If you take a look to my other posts, you will SEE that they gave the power to the military to control all these re-education programs and medical treatments under TRICARE. Don't be surprise to see crazy peoples and zombies all around you. When they manipulate your brain, they can do everything with you after that.  



"Christian clinicians have the opportunity to learn from and connect with other professionals who share their faith and values" See how they're using a "christian language" to trap the peoples. The Lord gave us natural plants to be able to have a good health but now, it's a "sin",  a crime under UN/Codex Alimentarius to possess medical plants. This psychiatric industry wants everyone on pills to be able to control every way of their life.

This is one good reason to move out this Babylon system and to walk only with the Messiah. This man of PEACE never try to trap you in one way or other. He tells the truth, He gaves everything we need to have a good life. All these "christians religions" under the WCC exist to be able to control by the luciferian agenda to seduce, to trap and to destroy the flock of sheeps.    





Hungry for Hope: Sex and Skinny Conference offers Information, Worship and Experiential Activities for Mental Health Professionals and the Public

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 30, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Many women today struggle with numerous challenges including eating disorders, trauma and body image issues. Research indicates that three out of four women have eating issues and one out of four women has experienced sexual abuse. To help individuals, mental health professionals and those with loved ones affected by these disorders, FINDINGbalance, a leading Christian resource for eating and body image issues, and its sponsors including Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, are holding a special conference, Hungry for Hope: Sex and Skinny, June 21 – 24, 2012, at Glen Eyrie in Colorado Springs. Nestled in the Garden of the Gods, Glen Eyrie, an English Tudor-style castle, is a healing destination for those seeking physical, emotional and spiritual renewal.

"At Hungry for Hope, Christian clinicians have the opportunity to learn from and connect with other professionals who share their faith and values," said Constance Rhodes, founder and CEO of FINDINGbalance. "Many women, and men, have some sort of eating issue. A full 40 percent of new visitors to porn sites are women and a significant percentage of those with eating disorders have experienced sexual trauma or addiction."

The conference's theme of Sex and Skinny will take a look at God-given sexuality, which has been a point of contention within the church for millennia. This often results in women feeling shame, fear and confusion about their bodies. For women to operate in a healthy way in these areas, Christian leaders and laypersons need to be equipped with scripturally sound views of sexuality and the body.

"Research studies have shown that women struggling with eating issues such as anorexia, bulimia, exercise addiction and emotional eating, also often struggle with sexual ones," said Margaret Nagib, PsyD, spirituality clinical coordinator at Timberline Knolls and keynote speaker at the conference. "True healing from these issues can only be realized as the individual identifies how these behaviors are used to cope with emotional and relational pain and looks to God as her source for her deepest longings and needs."

Hungry for Hope is designed as a retreat to encourage, inspire and equip professionals and community members with stories, practical clinical tools and spiritual teaching to promote a healing path. For more information or to register for the event, please visit: www.hfhconference.com/content/register.html

Todd Warren, spirituality coordinator at Timberline Knolls, will be performing at the conference. A nationally-known songwriter, recording artist and ordained minister, Todd uses his music to help women and girls express and celebrate their spirituality.

NEW CLINICAL SUPPORT TOOL HELPS TREAT SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS


By Corina Notyce, DCoE Strategic Communications
U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Marc I. Lane
To address the ongoing concern within the military about substance use disorders, a new tool kit is available to assist health care providers treating patients abusing alcohol or drugs. The “Substance Use Disorder Toolkit,” developed by U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM), , Department of Veterans Affairs and Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE), ensures providers deliver evidence-based treatment consistent with the Department of Veterans Affairs and Defense Department Clinical Practice Guideline. The tool kit also makes it easier for providers to share relevant information and resources to support recovery with patients and families.

“This tool kit is intended to be a useful, quick reference tool for primary care providers to maximize treatment efforts,” said Lt. Col. Philip Holcombe, DCoE subject matter expert on psychological health. “It provides an overview of best care practices, summarizes and highlights key areas providers need to cover in treatment, and includes easy-to-use reference cards providers can keep in the exam room to assist them with assessment and care.”

A 2008 survey of active-duty service members revealed that 20 percent of warriors drank heavily and abusively at least once within a 30-day period; heavy drinking is still problematic today. The reasons why service members and veterans turn to mood-altering substances (e.g., alcohol, prescription medicines, over-the-counter medications, steroids, dietary supplements and inhalants) vary significantly, but common reasons include social influence, recreation, loosening of inhibitions and stress relief.

“Studies and research are uncovering that combat exposure and deployment-related psychological stress are associated with an increase in frequency of heavy drinking and substance misuse behaviors,” said Lt. Cmdr. David Barry, DCoE subject matter expert on substance abuse. “Additionally, many service members and veterans turn to alcohol or drugs to overcome other psychological health problems or symptoms, such as sleep.”

Service members with substance abuse problems may experience multiple adverse consequences in their personal and professional lives. Substance use disorders may cause health, marital, legal and financial problems, as well as lead to emotional and physical abuse. For example, more than 50 percent of family abuse stems from substance abuse. To address this concern, one of the tool kit brochures entitled, “Substance Abuse Affects Families,” assists providers in educating family members about the family impacts of substance abuse.

To download a copy of the “Substance Use Disorder Toolkit” or to order a hard copy, visit dcoe.health.mil/SUDToolkit. Additional products complementing the tool kit are scheduled for future release.

INTERIM RESULTS REPORTED FOR PHASE I OPEN-LABEL CLINICAL TRIAL FOR THE TREATMENT OF PTSD AND MDD USING EXTERNAL TRIGEMINAL NERVE STIMULATION (eTNS™) - THE USB PORT TO THE Brain™


LOS ANGELES, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the 52nd annual New Clinical Drug Evaluation Unit (NCDEU) Conference in Arizona, Ian Cook, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and a Senior Medical Advisor to NeuroSigma, Inc., presented the results from the first 6-subject cohort of a 10-subject Phase I open-label clinical trial studying the effects of external trigeminal nerve stimulation (eTNS™) on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and depressive symptoms in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy. The trial is being conducted at UCLA and is funded by NeuroSigma. Mean decreases in PTSD measures of 36% and depression measures of over 50% were reported.

The study was conducted over an 8-week period and followed similarly designed eTNS trials conducted at UCLA, in which promising results were generated in treating both major depression and epilepsy. Subjects had a mean age of 54 with a median of 28 years since traumatic exposure and suffered from both PTSD and MDD.

Current episodes were required to be of at least four months in duration, with non-response to at least one antidepressant. In this outpatient trial, subjects placed stimulating eTNS electrodes on their foreheads for approximately eight hours each night while asleep, and the severity of PTSD and depression symptoms was measured every two weeks using standard recognized rating scales.

"These findings are very encouraging," said Dr. Cook. "The combination of depression and an anxiety disorder, like PTSD, is usually difficult to treat effectively.

The participants in the study told us that eTNS was easy to use at home and led, in some instances, to the best mental health they had experienced in years. We expect these results, along with results from the remaining subjects in this Phase I trial, to form the basis for an upcoming Phase II clinical trial that will examine efficacy, tolerability, and safety in a larger sample with a double-blind, controlled trial design."

Lodwrick Cook, Chairman of NeuroSigma, added, "PTSD is a serious global disorder drastically in need of promising new therapies. As Americans we have an obligation to do our utmost to help the thousands of fellow citizens who are stricken by PTSD as a result of both military and non-military related traumatic events. We are very pleased by the preliminary results and applaud the efforts of the clinical team at UCLA."

PTSD, commonly associated with the effects of warfare, arises after exposure to a traumatic event; such as train bombings and terrorist attacks as experienced on September 11th, or natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the massive Fukushima earthquake and tsunami in Japan, or personal tragedies affecting those involved in traffic accidents, domestic violence or sexual assault. It is marked by symptoms in three groups: those of re-experiencing (nightmares, flashbacks), those of avoidance and numbing (isolation from others, avoiding reminders), and increased arousal (being on edge, hyper-alert, subject to explosive responses when startled). PTSD is often accompanied by depression, and many of the medications used to treat PTSD were first developed as antidepressants. However, recent studies suggest that having an anxiety disorder, such as PTSD, significantly reduces the likelihood that antidepressants will work, making the treatment of PTSD very challenging. The August 2011 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that a widely prescribed antipsychotic medication may be no more effective than placebo in treating PTSD.

NeuroSigma, Inc., a Los Angeles-based medical technology company established to in-license and develop early stage technologies with the potential to transform medical practice, is the exclusive worldwide licensee of UCLA's TNS intellectual property, including eTNS for PTSD and depression. Dr. Ian Cook added, "I'm confident that the transfer of the technology from academia to the next phase of trials will go smoothly and that, with replication, this treatment has the opportunity to be made available to help many of those who suffer with PTSD and major depression. Given the external, non-invasive nature of this therapy, it might be useful in the battlefield or in an emergency room immediately after a traumatic event, with the theoretical potential to impact the development of full-blown PTSD."

Background - TNS

NeuroSigma is commercializing two embodiments of trigeminal nerve stimulation (TNS): eTNS™ (external electrodes and an external pulse generator) and sTNS™ (subcutaneous electrodes and implantable pulse generator). The eTNS system utilizes a self-adhesive conductive pad applied to the forehead to stimulate branches of the trigeminal nerve, which are located very close to the surface of the skin in the forehead. The trigeminal nerve is the largest cranial nerve, offering a high-bandwidth pathway for signals to enter the brain. In clinical studies, eTNS is well tolerated and the low-energy stimulus is confined to the soft tissues of the face without direct penetration into the brain – hence the term "USB Port to the Brain™."
The trigeminal nerve projects to specific areas of the brain, such as the locus coeruleus, nucleus tractus solitarius, thalamus and the cerebral cortex, which are involved in epilepsy, depression, PTSD and other disorders. PET imaging studies in humans confirms that eTNS activates or inhibits key regions implicated in these disorders and the changes were observed within minutes of therapy. Once approved by regulatory agencies, patients who respond well to eTNS can opt to switch to the implantable sTNS system. NeuroSigma has completed development of its eTNS system and is seeking CE Mark approval in Europe for the treatment of epilepsy and depression. NeuroSigma is concurrently developing its implantable sTNS system.

CAUTION:Both eTNS™ and sTNS™ systems are investigational devices and at this time are limited by Federal (United States) law to investigational use.

Abstract
Microbial colonization of mammals is an evolution-driven process that modulate host physiology, many of which are associated with immunity and nutrient intake. Here, we report that colonization by gut microbiota impacts mammalian brain development and subsequent adult behavior. Using measures of motor activity and anxiety-like behavior, we demonstrate that germ free (GF) mice display increased motor activity and reduced anxiety, compared with specific pathogen free (SPF) mice with a normal gut microbiota. This behavioral phenotype is associated with altered expression of genes known to be involved in second messenger pathways and synaptic long-term potentiation in brain regions implicated in motor control and anxiety-like behavior. GF mice exposed to gut microbiota early in life display similar characteristics as SPF mice, including reduced expression of PSD-95 and synaptophysin in the striatum. Hence, our results suggest that the microbial colonization process initiates signaling mechanisms that affect neuronal circuits involved in motor control and anxiety behavior.

Roy Eidelson (about the author)








by Roy Eidelson and Stephen Soldz



Ten years of continuous war -- characterized by multiple deployments, elusive guerilla adversaries, and occupied populations seemingly more tilted toward resentment than gratitude -- have taken a significant toll on US troops. In addition to those who have been killed, physically maimed, or neurologically impaired by combat, many soldiers have experienced debilitating psychological disorders including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. Large numbers are on antidepressants and other psychotropic medications, while the suicide rate among troops has risen to alarming levels.

The sobering realities of the psychological effects of war pose a serious challenge for the US military tasked with simultaneously fighting multiple wars and anticipating years of "persistent conflict" ahead. The good news is that key sectors within the military have now identified the mental health of our troops as a major issue that must be addressed. Indeed, in addition to treatment for those suffering psychological impairment, the military leadership is pursuing intervention efforts aimed at preventingsuch adverse outcomes by increasing soldiers' psychological resilience to combat exposure. The largest of these new initiatives is the  Army's ComprehensiveSoldier Fitness (CSF) program, launched in 2009 and based upon the "positive psychology" framework of psychologist Martin Seligman. And that brings us to the bad news: despite the over-hyped claims of CSF's leading proponents, at this point there is little evidence to suggest that CSF works.

Since its inception, CSF has been the target of numerous criticisms from psychologists and others, including an article, "The Dark Side of Comprehensive Soldier Fitness," we co-authored with colleague Marc Pilisuk last year, a series of critical comments published in the October 2011 issue of the American Psychologist, and criticism voiced on PBS NewsHour. Concerns raised by critics span a wide range of significant issues (and led to Congressional inquiries last year): the questionable empirical evidence behind the rapid creation and implementation of CSF; indications that CSF is actually a research study involuntarily imposed upon troops without appropriate protections such as independent ethical review and informed consent; the possibility that CSF may distract attention from addressing the documented adverse effects of multiple and lengthy deployments and high levels of combat exposure; potential negative effects of CSF, common in prevention programs, that have not been carefully considered or monitored; concerns as to whether  the "spirituality" component of CSF is inappropriately promoting religion; the insufficient examination of ethical questions posed by efforts to build "indomitable" soldiers ; issues concerning the awarding of a $31 million no-bid contract to Seligman's positive psychology center at the University of Pennsylvania for CSF development; and the seemingly uncritical embrace and promotion of CSF by the American Psychological Association (of which Seligman is a past president).

Recently we identified yet another deeply problematic issue with the CSF program: The research evaluating the program is of questionable quality and it does not support the strong claims being made about CSF's effectiveness. Most notably, last December CSF researchers released a report, "Report #3: Longitudinal Analysis of the Impact of Master Resilience Training on Self-Reported Resilience and Psychological Health Data," purporting to demonstrate that CSF "works." On the report's first page, the researchers boldly assert: "There is now sound scientific evidence that Comprehensive Soldier Fitness improves the resilience and psychological health of Soldiers ." And, in a prefatory statement to the report, Army Vice Chief of Staff General Peter Chiarelli writes: "I and other Army senior leaders are often asked if it [CSF] really works -- if it actually makes Soldiers more resilient and psychologically healthier. I believe the answer is yes."

The Army News Service quickly and broadly disseminated the "news" this way: "The Master Resilience Training aspect of Comprehensive Soldier Fitness is working well. That's the conclusion of an Army report, released last month, covering a 15-month period of statistical evaluation." This summary has appeared on dozens of websites, including the official websites of the U.S. Army, the CSF program, the Army National Guard, the U.S. Army magazine Soldiers, and the Fort Hood Sentinel.

Report #3 assesses the Master Resilience Trainer component of CSF. After undergoing an intensive 10-day training course, each newly-minted "Master Resilience Trainer" is placed in an Army unit. Trainers are charged with equipping fellow soldiers with thinking skills and strategies intended to help them more effectively handle the physical and psychological challenges of military life, including, most especially, combat operations.

In our report released last week, "Does Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Work? CSF Research Fails the Test," we critique Report #3 in detail and identify five major areas of weakness: (1) the researchers' failure to measure the important outcomes of PTSD, depression, or other psychological disorders despite the availability of validated measures for doing so, (2) a flawed research design that fails to control for important confounding variables, (3) significant problems with the method of data analysis, (4) the researchers' failure to acknowledge plausible risks of harm from the CSF intervention, and (5) a miscellaneous set of related issues of concern. (While much of our report addresses issues of research design and methodology, we have aimed to make it as accessible as possible to the broader public.)

Based upon our careful analysis of Report #3, we believe that the claims of CSF proponents regarding the program's effectiveness are vastly inflated. We therefore call upon the Army to retract this report or, at a minimum, issue an unambiguous and widely disseminated statement acknowledging that the report is seriously flawed and that, as a result, the verdict is still out as to whether CSF actually "works."

In making this recommendation we fully recognize that large-scale evaluation research is an intrinsically difficult undertaking inevitably imperfect in its execution. However, the public that has paid over $100 million for the CSF program and, even more, the one million soldiers who are involuntarily subjected to CSF's resiliency training deserve much better than the misrepresentations of effectiveness aggressively promoted by Report #3.

Certainly, the psychological health of our nation's soldiers, and of all citizens, should be a top priority. As a country we must commit ourselves to addressing the alarming rates of PTSD, suicide, and other serious behavioral and emotional difficulties among our troops, especially those repeatedly exposed to the horrors of combat and war. But it is simply wrong at this time to present CSF as part of a solution, because to date there is no solid empirical evidence demonstrating that the program accomplishes any of these lofty goals.
Note : This article draws upon material in our report "Does Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Work? CSF Research Fails the Test."

EARLY LIFE VIOLENCE TIED TO MENTAL DISORDERS: STUDY

Reuters – 14 hours ago

(Reuters) - People who remember being pushed, slapped and hit as children are more likely to be diagnosed with depression, anxiety and personality disorders later in life, according to an international study covering thousands of people.


Canadian researchers whose results were published in the journal Pediatrics estimated that between two and seven percent of those mental disorders might be due to punishments inflicted in childhood, not including more severe forms of abuse.

"People believe that as long as you don't cross that line into child maltreatment, and the physical punishment is controlled and doesn't cross the line into abuse, it won't have any negative long-term consequences for the child," said study leader Tracie Afifi at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.

"The way we see it is along a continuum of having no violence to severe violence," Afifi said.

Up to half of all children may be spanked as punishment, but Afifi and her team wanted to look at harsher punishments, such as shoving and hitting.

The study team used data collected by United States Census interviewers in 2004 and 2005 in surveys of close to 35,000 adults across the country.

The interviewers asked participants about how often they were physically punished as kids, other problems their families had - such as parents who had drug problems or went to jail - and about their symptoms of mental disorders, current or past.

Afifi and her colleagues didn't include anyone who reported being physically, sexually or emotionally abused by family members in order to focus on the effect of punishment that didn't go so far as to constitute maltreatment.

They found about six percent of interview subjects had been punished beyond spanking "sometimes," "fairly often" or "very often" - and those people with a history of harsh physical punishment were more likely to have a range of mood and personality disorders or to abuse drugs and alcohol.

For example, 20 percent of people who remembered being physically punished had been depressed and 43 percent had abused alcohol at some point. That compared to 16 percent of people who weren't hit or slapped who had been depressed and 30 percent who drank too much.

Those links held up after the researchers took into account family problems, including which participants' parents had been treated for mental illness themselves - and interviewees' race, income and education level.

Afifi and her team wrote that physical punishment may lead to chronic stress in children, which could then increase their chance of developing depression or anxiety later on.

Michele Knox, a psychiatrist who studies family and youth violence at the University of Toledo College of Medicine, agreed that's a likely explanation.

"Physical punishment is a chronic and sometimes repeated stressor for young people, and we know that chronic and repeated stressors have a negative impact on the brain," said Knox, who wasn't part of the study.

But the findings can't prove the punishments themselves caused the children to develop mood and personality disorders, with Knox pointing out that interviewees may not have known if their parents were treated for mental illness. Depression and anxiety are known to be at least partly genetic. SOURCE: http://bit.ly/jsoh2P

VIRTUAL REALITY VS. PTSD: HELPING COMBAT VETS HEAL

Researchers in the university's Institute for Creative Technologies are using virtual reality systems to help combat post-traumatic stress disorder. CNET Road Trip 2012 stopped by to learn more.

LOS ANGELES--I'm sitting across from a soldier named Garza, trying to get him to open up about why he got caught drinking and driving.

This is a serious offense in the military, and Garza could lose his rank, if not get kicked out of the Army altogether. And it's my job as his superior officer to try to understand that Garza -- who used to be among the best in his unit -- may be struggling with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.

This, of course, is a simulation. I'm not in the military, and Garza doesn't even exist. But the idea is very real: training young officers to deal with subordinates who are struggling with undiagnosed issues that might be related to PTSD -- something that has become an epidemic among Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans.

As part of Road Trip 2012, I've stopped in at the University of California's Institute for Creative Technologies, a series of labs that together create compelling "stories, characters and special effects [and apply] this winning Hollywood formula to benefit service members, students and society at large."

During the course of a whirlwind tour of ICT -- which was founded in 1999 with multiple-year contract from the U.S. Army -- I've gotten a primer in a number of different technologies, many of which either are already, or could soon be, used to help combat veterans or their families handle the growing problem that is PTSD in the military. As has been well chronicled, PTSD is the likely culprit behind an increasing amount of violence, bad behavior, and suicide among veterans. Yet despite a great deal of discussion on the matter, there is still a sense in the military that talking about having PTSD is a sign of weakness. As a result, many service members suffering its effects aren't getting help.

That's where a lot of research is coming into play, and at ICT, much of it is employing virtual reality as a means of developing systems that could eventually inspire veterans to open up about what's plaguing them. At the same time, ICT researchers are also working on technologies that could help those suffering with other serious combat-related maladies, such as traumatic brain injury.

ELITE

The system that tasks young officers with learning how to handle struggling subordinates is called ELITE, or the Emergent Leader Immersion Training Environment. The idea is that new officers may not yet have the trust of their squad, yet must deal with disciplining them when they get in trouble.


ELITE utilizes a virtual human and a system that runs trainees through a series of scenarios where they have to question a subordinate who has gotten in some kind of trouble that may well stem from an undiagnosed case of PTSD. The goal is for the young officers to learn how to steer their charges in the right direction when trouble like this arises. And the system utilizes virtual reality because it's an ideal way for the young leaders to practice scenarios over and over again -- each time trying to get a little better at handling a difficult situation with a level of sensitivity that someone struggling with a serious, but untreated, ailment deserves.

Virtual Iraq/Afghanistan

ICT researcher Skip Rizzo knows that PTSD is a serious problem in the military, and he knows that one of the keys to helping sufferers is to get them to confront the events or issues at the root of the malady.


With Virtual Iraq/Afghanistan, combat veterans can gradually relive the events that led to their PTSD, such as experiencing a road-side bombing.
(Credit: Daniel Terdiman/CNET)

That's the idea behind Rizzo's Virtual Iraq/Afghanistan system. Designed to be used in conjunction with slow and methodical therapy, the technology gives therapists a way to take combat veterans through actual events. To be sure, there's no way to go back in time, but if the patient is able to open up enough to the therapist about what helped lead to the PTSD, the therapist can use the software to develop a virtual run-through that re-creates -- often with a great deal of specificity -- what happened.

And to make the system even more helpful, Rizzo's team has seeded it with tools that can add certain kinds of triggers -- such as the smell of rotting garbage, burning cordite, or diesel fuel -- that might get the troubled service member to open up.

It might seem that making a combat veteran relive, say, a roadside bombing, or friends getting killed in front of them, is cruel. But in fact, if done properly, and repeated carefully, it can be a key to helping a veteran process what is plaguing him or her, and potentially escape the constant anxiety that comes with PTSD. Rizzo has stats that back up the assertion. Of the first 20 veterans who went through the system, he said, 16 no longer met the definition of having PTSD after the treatment.

Sim Coach

While the combat veterans are the ones struggling most directly with the effects of PTSD -- or in some cases, traumatic brain injury -- their families and friends are right there with them. Families, once a cornerstone of military life, are falling apart at record levels. So researchers at ICT have come up with another system that aims to help loved ones get some of the help they need, all without jeopardizing the veteran's privacy.
One system is called Sim Coach. Utilizing a Web-based virtual human programmed to ask a number of questions that can help loved ones understand how to navigate what's happening to their family.

VIDEO : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2bsMESwBeyg 

One key component is that the virtual therapist makes it clear he -- or she -- doesn't represent the military. Instead, he or she is there to act as an advocate for the loved one, and to potentially guide them to more in-depth local assistance. In order to achieve that, the Sim Coach asks a number of questions to try to figure out the right approach for getting help. And ultimately, one powerful result is that these people often start to get used to confiding in someone else about what's happening to them -- even if it's just a virtual character.

Check out the latest from Daniel's tour of all things geeky in the Golden State, with jaunts into Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon, as well.

Light Stage and Digital Emily

Given that ICT is in Los Angeles, it shouldn't surprise you that there is a fair bit of Hollywood in the lab. That's true nowhere more than in the graphics lab, home to the Light Stage. This full sphere contains dozens of special cameras, as well as a unique LED lighting system that, put together, is capable of creating a facial scan that can give animators or virtual reality programmers access to a virtual face far more realistic than what has come before.
The system has been used in several Hollywood films -- including "Avatar" -- but it is also useful at creating faces that can be used by virtual humans for therapeutic purposes. Researchers have concluded that the more realistic the face is, the more likely a service member will respond as desired, especially when the face is joined by realistic scenario programming.

A showpiece for Light Stage is the Digital Emily project. For this, researchers scanned actress Emily O'Brien and using the special lighting system inside Light Stage, were able to generate 32 specific animated facial expressions of hers. Those expressions, it turns out, are enough to give an animator all they need to make a realistic animated Emily.

Mixed reality lab

Though not clearly related to helping the military tackle PTSD, the work being done in ICT's Mixed Reality Lab is no less impressive. There, researcher Mark Bolas is working on virtual reality tools that could soon give the military ways to train service members in combat scenarios with higher fidelity than ever before.
The showpiece of this research is a system called Redirected Walking. By putting a head-mounted display on someone, the researchers can then usher that person through what they think is a long walk down a gravel path hundreds of feet long, all the while looking out into a desert scene with a 140-degree view that changes in real time, and with the wearer's movements and turns of his or her head, far more than anything else available, Bolas claimed.

The trick is making the wearer believe they're going into a room and walking around inside looking for something. What really happens is that the wearer returns to the original starting point on the lab's 30-foot-long gravel path. But they don't know that. Instead, they return to what they believe is the same spot on the path that they left to go into the room, and pick right up where they left off. The point is to get service members comfortable with running scenarios with a head-mounted virtual display.

VIDEO : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ej3nMLR_nAE 

That was very cool, of course: I had definitely never experienced anything like it. But I wanted to know when there were be a version that utilized a more realistic sized set of goggles or the like. Bolas said "I could hug you," and walked me over to a table with some, yes, goggles. Here, he showed me a set of smartphone apps that he and his team designed to approximate the larger work they've done on an every day device. It's not the same, of course, but when I put on my goggles, wrapped around my iPhone, I was inside a virtual space, and wherever I moved my head or my eyes, my view in the virtual room reflected the move.

It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen done with an iPhone. And coming before too long, I'm sure, the real technology Bolas and his team created will be reduced in size from a giant, unwieldy helmet to something as stealthy as a pair of glasses. I can't wait.

GLOBALIST SCIENTISTS SAY SPANKING CHILDREN CAUSES MENTAL DISORDERS

Susanne PoselJul 7th, 2012

July 7, 2012

Canadian researchers have linked mental disorders to being spanked as a child. As adults, say the study, the subjection to spanking manifests itself as depressive and anxiety disorders, alcoholism, and drug abuse. The study also asserts that being spanked as a child lowers IQ and causes adults to become anti-social and aggressive.

The researchers wrote that their study shows ” the risks associated with physical punishment is robust.”

The analysis was conducted by Dr. Joan Durrant of the family medicine and social sciences department at the University of Manitoba and Ron Ensom, of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

The authors of the study included the banning of physical punishment by 11 countries, following the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by the United Nations in the 1990s. Those countries were among the 191 of the world’s 196 countries who ratified the convention.

“Three forces — research, the convention and law reform — have altered the landscape of physical punishment,” the researchers said.

The UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) “legally binding international instrument” adopted in 1989 is a “special convention” of international leaders that outlines special needs of “people under 18 years old often need special care and protection that adults do not.”

The UNCRC admonishes governments and policymakers to “[commit] themselves to protecting and ensuring children’s rights and they have agreed to hold themselves accountable for this commitment before the international community.”

The UN defined the UNCRC beginning with the United Nations Charter in 1945. They defined family as the “the natural and fundamental group unit of society” and promised to enforce international mandates against any nation that did not uphold their definitions of human rights in individual sovereign countries.

By enforcing their “new vision of the child”, the UN sees children as an “individual” over the structure of the family and contributor to the “community” by declaring their “rights and responsibilities appropriate for [their] age and stage of development.”

The UN sees the advent of industrialized nations as ignoring the “special needs” of children. The UNCRC obligates governments to “amend and create laws and policies to fully implement the Convention; they must consider all actions taken in light of the best interests of the child.”

The study, published in the US journal Pediatrics , first analyzed theoretical correlations between psychological problems and spanking, while excluding more severe psychical and sexual abuse in order to isolate corporal punishment and single out the parental discipline.

The researcher’s definition of “harsh physical punishment” was pushing, grabbing, shoving, slapping or hitting as a form of punishment from parents.

The biased research showed that children who were spanked were 2 to 5% more likely to develop mental disorders. This information was taken from retrospective surveys from the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcoholism and Related Conditions conducted between 2004 and 2005 and encompassed of over 600 US adults over the age of 20.

Participants in the study were asked: “As a child how often were you ever pushed, grabbed, shoved, slapped or hit by your parents or any adult living in your house?”

Any response but “no” was counted as a “yes” and added to the coercive outcome that the researchers needed to prove their hypothesis.

Experts claim the number must be too low, considering more than 50% of the American population can recall being spanked as children. Yet this study will most certainly be used to “prove” that physical punishment will elevate the risk of problems “in the future”.

Dr. Joshua Williams, Faculty in the Department of Psychology and Director of the Perceptual-motor Learning and Action in Infants (PLAI) Lab at Armstrong Atlantic State University says: “Some of the first writings on education and physical punishment in education state the fact that physical punishment is typically ineffective as far as changing behavior. The implications COULD be severe. When you read the title it’s very catchy and tells you that spanking leads to this.”

Williams believes the decision to spank your child or not is subjective, however he strictly suggests that time-out and taking a child’s favorite toy away is much more effective in curbing unwanted behavior.

Alternative modes of thought see excessive use of time-out as resembling the confinement of imprisonment and taking away prized possessions teaches children that adults will betray trust and manipulate their children in order to ensure they behave as desired.

Roya Samuels, a pediatrician at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New York, adds that “unruly behavior” has a strong genetic link that the researchers did not take into account. Samuels said: “Parents who are resorting to mechanisms of corporal punishment might themselves be at risk for depression and mental disorders; therefore, there might be a hereditary factor going on in these families.”

Victor Formari, director of director of the division of child and adolescent psychiatry at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System in New York, said: “The study is valuable because it opens the conversation about parenting.”

Formari was not involved in the study, but commented that the rate “is not dramatically higher, but it is higher, just to suggest that physical punishment is a risk factor for developing more mental disturbances as an adult.”

Researchers asserted that the mere memory of being spanked as a child could induce the adult mind to develop addictive and destructive disorders. While they failed to find direct links from exposure to corporeal punishment and the advent of psychological problems.

The American Academy of Pediatrics opposes striking children for any cause and the Canadian Paediatric Society recommends that doctors strongly discourage the use of physical punishment.

In the Book of Proverbs, there are many lessons about raising children and those who make decisions. Closer look of some of these laws. Each of us is called to practice them and to follow the Lord because there is LIFE and PEACE. One day when the Lord returns, it will be on its laws that the people and not be subject to all these depraved acts that destroy the family and future generations, that our governments and psychiatric scientists have put in place to corrupt the words of God and trying to corrupt the soul of our kids. Saying that spanking children causes mental disorders is just lying to be able to take over our family under protection laws. They present themselves has a dad and mom who know what's good or bad for our family but they reject the words of God who teach us how to take care of our kids. With the global jihad muslim it's different. The government is cover up all the crimes committed against children under cultural and religious freedom of religion. The UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is just an other corrupt department and tool for this global evil system of the Beast to criminalize parents and be able to take away your kids from you. Turn your heart to the Most High and He will show you the TRUTH and the WAY in all things. Take a minute to read these verses to learn how God wants for you and your family.

Proverbs 1:8-9, Proverbs 1:10-11, Proverbs 4:20-23, Proverbs 17:6, Proverbs 5:15, Proverbs 5:20, Proverbs 5:25, Proverbs 5:26, Proverbs 7:13, Proverbs 7:26, Proverbs 22:15, Proverbs 23:13-1, Proverbs 23:15-16, Proverbs 11:24. You can find a lot more if you read your Bible. The Lord will show you the good ways for your family.

DCoE RELEASES CLINICAL RECOMMENDATION, REFERENCE CARD TO TREAT NEUROENDOCRINE DYSFUNCTION

By Corina Notyce, DCoE Strategic Communications

U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Efren Lopez
An estimated 1.7 million cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) occur every year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 244,000 service members have sustained at least one TBI from 2000 through the first quarter of this year, according to the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center. The majority of both military and civilian TBIs are classified as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), and most patients experience complete functional recovery within three months or less of injury. However, some individuals do not recover within this timeframe and may benefit from post-injury neuroendocrine dysfunction (NED) screening.

The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) developed new clinical recommendations and clinical support tools to guide primary care providers of service members who sustain mTBI. The “Neuroendocrine Dysfunction Screening Post Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Clinical Recommendation and Reference Card” provides medical guidance to evaluate and treat NED. The tools clarify the indications for post-injury neuroendocrine screening and provide a reference point for neuroendocrine screening following traumatic brain injury.

“To our knowledge, there are currently no clinical guidance sources or support tools that present this kind of information to primary care providers,” said Therese West, DCoE subject matter expert on traumatic brain injury. “The goal is to increase primary care providers’ awareness of NED so they consider it along with other more well-known diagnoses such as posttraumatic stress disorder and depression, in service members presenting prolonged symptoms or difficult rehabilitation following a concussion.”

Neuroendocrine dysfunction occurs as a result of direct trauma or biochemical response that interferes with the normal production and regulation of interrelated hormonal processes. The onset of NED can occur any time after sustaining a concussion and up to 36 months post injury. Patients may experience symptoms including fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, poor memory, depression, difficulty concentrating, frequent mood changes and weight gain/weight loss. Since these symptoms are similar to symptoms of other co-occurring conditions such as post-concussive syndrome, sleep disorders, depression or posttraumatic stress disorder, NED can be difficult to diagnose.

“Approximately 15 percent of patients with mild TBI experience persistent symptoms and difficulty in rehabilitation,” said West. “Current literature and expert consensus have identified that from the 15 percent of mild TBI patients whose symptoms don’t resolve in the usual timeframe, an estimated 15 to 30 percent develop NED.”

The NED clinical recommendation and reference card includes information on the co-occurrence of NED and mTBI, onset and manifestation of NED symptoms, and an algorithm to inform providers of when to obtain lab tests and what labs are recommended if NED is suspected.

Additionally, DCoE created education slides to assist providers who have basic knowledge of mTBI but who may require additional information on NED factors.

To request hard copies of the NED Screening Post Mild TBI Clinical Recommendation and Reference Card, contact DCoE at DCoE-Products@tma.osd.mil. To download an electronic version of these tools as well as other TBI clinical resources, visit the Health Professionals section of the DCoE website.

NAVY NURSE EMPHASIZES IMPORTANCE OF NURSING IN PSYCHIATRIC HEALTH

Posted by: Health.mil Staff

Monday, June 25, 2012

Navy Lt. Cmdr. Pam Wall, former program director for the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) Adult Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program recently discussed the role of nurses in delivering mental health care to wounded veterans. Wall, speaking with “Need to Know,” a PBS TV and web newsmagazine, said her goal is to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health problems and mental health care. She also emphasized the connection between nursing care and mental health care.

“One of the advantages of nursing is that because we are always with the patients I think it helps us to readily identify some mental health issues maybe before another person is able to identify it,” she said.

Wall was at the University of Pennsylvania, where she and her colleague, Lt. Cmdr. Sean Convoy, also a member of the Navy Nurse Corps and current director of the USUHS program, taught a class on post-traumatic stress disorder. Speaking with the nursing students, both Wall and Convoy emphasized the unique stresses faced by service members and the role nurses play in helping them get the psychological care they need.

SCIENTISTS PROVE DNA CAN BE REPROGRAMMED BY WORDS AND FREQUENCIES — THE POWER OF HYPER-COMMINICATION

This is what's behind all these rehabilitation programs under the cover to mental health care. The new psychiatric reform is only there to "help" humans to enter in this high level consciousness. They're working to corrupt DNA and transforming humans soul and brain. All unite together to become a citizen of the world.

This is what we see about all these programs for traumatic brain injury (TBI) who are under the control of the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center and Jesuit order who are behind this war against humanity. They will also use these technics for resistants to change their mind to help them to become good slaves for the global Empire and the Antichrist.

There is a direct connection with all these new age gurus who are calling for a new consciousness who make us believe that we will become our own god. If you check some of their videos (be carrefull with all these frenquencies in their music http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=consciousness+music&oq=consciousness&gs_l=youtube-reduced.1.2.0l4.76219.76219.0.80182.1.1.0.0.0.0.195.195.0j1.1.0...0.0...1ac.1M9tq9m49_U ), you will see exactly the same agenda.

This is just an other abomination against the God of Heaven who gave us everything we need to be able to live on this Earth. Evil peoples just want to corrupt and enslave everyone under their evil power.


Posted on July 17, 2012
by Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf
Compiled, summarized and translated by Bärbel Mohr




THE HUMAN DNA IS A BIOLOGICAL INTERNET and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self-healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies without cutting out and replacing single genes. 
 
Only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this subset of DNA that is of interest to western researchers and is being examined and categorized. The other 90% are considered “junk DNA.” The Russian researchers, however, convinced that nature was not dumb, joined linguists and geneticists in a venture to explore those 90% of “junk DNA.” Their results, findings and conclusions are simply revolutionary!  
 
According to them, our DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body but also serves as data storage and in communication. The Russian linguists found that the genetic code, especially in the apparently useless 90%, follows the same rules as all our human languages. To this end they compared the rules of syntax (the way in which words are put together to form phrases and sentences), semantics (the study of meaning in language forms) and the basic rules of grammar. They found that the alkalines of our DNA follow a regular grammar and do have set rules just like our languages. So human languages did not appear coincidentally but are a reflection of our inherent DNA. 
 
The Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues also explored the vibrational behavior of the DNA. [For the sake of brevity I will give only a summary here. For further exploration please refer to the appendix at the end of this article.] The bottom line was: “Living chromosomes function just like solitonic/holographic computers using the endogenous DNA laser radiation.” This means that they managed, for example, to modulate certain frequency patterns onto a laser ray and with it influenced the DNA frequency and thus the genetic information itself. Since the basic structure of DNA-alkaline pairs and of language (as explained earlier) are of the same structure, no DNA decoding is necessary. 
 
 
 
One can simply use words and sentences of the human language! This, too, was experimentally proven! Living DNA substance (in living tissue, not in vitro) will always react to language-modulated laser rays and even to radio waves, if the proper frequenciesare being used. 
 
This finally and scientifically explains why affirmations, autogenous training, hypnosis and the like can have such strong effects on humans and their bodies. It is entirely normal and natural for our DNA to react to language. While western researchers cut single genes from the DNA strands and insert them elsewhere, the Russians enthusiastically worked on devices that can influence the cellular metabolism through suitable modulated radio and light frequencies and thus repair genetic defects. 
 
Garjajev’s research group succeeded in proving that with this method chromosomes damaged by x-rays for example can be repaired. They even captured information patterns of a particular DNA and transmitted it onto another, thus reprogramming cells to another genome. So they successfully transformed, for example, frog embryos to salamander embryos simply by transmitting the DNA information patterns! This way the entire information was transmitted without any of the side effects or disharmonies encountered when cutting out and re-introducing single genes from the DNA. This represents an unbelievable, world-transforming revolution and sensation! All this by simply applying vibration and language instead of the archaic cutting-out procedure! This experiment points to the immense power of wave genetics, which obviously has a greater influence on the formation of organisms than the biochemical processes of alkaline sequences. 
 
Esoteric and spiritual teachers have known for ages that our body is programmable by language, words and thought. This has now been scientifically proven and explained. Of course the frequency has to be correct. And this is why not everybody is equally successful or can do it with always the same strength. The individual person must work on theinner processes and maturity in order to establish a conscious communication with the DNA. The Russian researchers work on a method that is not dependent on these factors but will always work, provided one uses the correct frequency. 
 
But the higher developed an individual’s consciousness is, the less need is there for any type of device! One can achieve these results by oneself, and science will finally stop to laugh at such ideas and will confirm and explain the results. And it doesn’t end there. The Russian scientists also found out that our DNA can cause disturbing patterns in the vacuum, thus producing magnetized wormholes! Wormholes are the microscopic equivalents of the so-called Einstein-Rosen bridges in the vicinity of black holes (left by burned-out stars — in so far as we know). These are tunnel connections between entirely different areas in the universe through which information can be transmitted outside of space and time. The DNA attracts these bits of information and passes them on to our consciousness. This process of hyper-communication is most effective in a state of relaxation. Stress, worries or a hyperactive intellect prevent successful hyper-communication or the information will be totally distorted and useless. 
 
In nature, hyper-communication has been successfully applied for millions of years. The organized flow of life in insect states proves this dramatically. Modern man knows it only on a much more subtle level as “intuition.” But we, too, can regain full use of it. An example from Nature: When a queen ant is spatially separated from her colony, building still continues fervently and according to plan. If the queen is killed, however, all work in the colony stops. No ant knows what to do. Apparently the queen sends the “building plans” also from far away via the group consciousness of her subjects. She can be as far away as she wants, as long as she is alive. In man, hyper-communication is most often encountered when one suddenly gains access to information that is outside one’s knowledge base. Such hyper-communication is then experienced as inspiration or intuition. The Italian composer Giuseppe Tartini for instance dreamt one night that a devil sat at his bedside playing the violin. The next morning Tartini was able to note down the piece exactly from memory, he called it the Devil’s Trill Sonata. 
 
 
For years, a 42-year old male nurse dreamt of a situation in which he was hooked up to a kind of knowledge CD-ROM. Verifiable knowledge from all imaginable fields was then transmitted to him that he was able to recall in the morning. There was such a flood of information that it seemed a whole encyclopedia was transmitted at night. The majority of facts were outside his personal knowledge base and reached technical details about which he knew absolutely nothing. 
 
When hyper-communication occurs, one can observe in the DNA as well as in the human being special phenomena. The Russian scientists irradiated DNA samples with laser light. On screen a typical wave pattern was formed. When they removed the DNA sample, the wave pattern did not disappear, it remained. Many control experiments showed that the pattern still came from the removed sample, whose energy field apparently remained by itself. This effect is now called phantom DNA effect. It is surmised that energy from outside of space and time still flows through the activated wormholes after the DNA was removed. The side-effect encountered most often in hyper-communication also in human beings are inexplicable electromagnetic fields in the vicinity of the persons concerned. Electronic devices like CD players and the like can be irritated and cease to function for hours. When the electromagnetic field slowly dissipates, the devices function normally again. Many healers and psychics know this effect from their work. The better the atmosphere and the energy, the more frustrating it is that the recording device stops functioning and recording exactly at that moment. And repeated switching on and off after the session does not restore function yet, but next morning all is back to normal. Perhaps this is reassuring to read for many, as it has nothing to do with them being technically inept, it means they are good at hyper-communication. 
 
In their book “Vernetzte Intelligenz” (translation: “Networked Intelligence”), Grazyna Gosar and Franz Bludorf explain these connections precisely and clearly. The authors also quote sources presuming that in earlier times humanity had been, just like the animals, very strongly connected to the group consciousness and acted as a group. To develop and experience individuality we humans however had to forget hyper-communication almost completely. Now that we are fairly stable in our individual consciousness, we can create a new form of group consciousness, namely one, in which we attain access to all information via our DNA without being forced or remotely controlled about what to do with that information. We now know that just as on the internet our DNA can feed its proper data into the network — it can call up data from the network and can establish contact with other participants in the network. Remote healing, telepathy or “remote sensing” about the state of relatives etc. can thus be explained. Some animals know also from afar when their owners plan to return home. That can be freshly interpreted and explained via the concepts of group consciousness and hyper-communication. Any collective consciousness cannot be sensibly used over any period of time without a distinctive individuality. Otherwise we would revert to a primitive herd instinct that is easily manipulated. 
 
Hyper-communication in the new millennium means something quite different: Researchers think that if humans with full individuality would regain group consciousness, they would have a god-like power to create, alter and shape things on Earth! AND humanity is collectively moving toward such a group consciousness of the new kind. Fifty percent of today’s children will be problem children as soon as the go to school. The system lumps everyone together and demands adjustment. But the individuality of today’s children is so strong that that they refuse this adjustment and giving up their idiosyncrasies in the most diverse ways. 
 
At the same time more and more clairvoyant children are born [see the book “China’s Indigo Children” by Paul Dong or the chapter about Indigos in my book “Nutze die taeglichen Wunder”(Make Use of the Daily Wonders)]. Something in those children is striving more and more towards the group consciousness of the new kind, and it will no longer be suppressed. As a rule, weather for example is rather difficult to influence by a single individual. But it may be influenced by a group consciousness (nothing new to some tribes doing it in their rain dances). Weather is strongly influenced by Earth resonance frequencies, the so-called Schumann frequencies. But those same frequencies are also produced in our brains, and when many people synchronize their thinking or individuals(spiritual masters, for instance) focus their thoughts in a laser-like fashion, then it is, scientifically speaking, not at all surprising if they can thus influence weather. 
 
Researchers in group consciousness have formulated the theory of Type I civilizations. A humanity that developed a group consciousness of the new kind would have neither environmental problems nor scarcity of energy. For if it were to use its mental power as a unified civilization, it would have control of the energies of its home planet as a natural consequence. And that includes all natural catastrophes! A theoretical Type II civilization would even be able to control all energies of their home galaxy. In my book Nutze die taeglichen Wunder,” I have described an example of this: Whenever a great many people focus their attention or consciousness on something similar like Christmas time, football world championship or the funeral of Lady Diana in England then certain random number generators in computers start to deliver ordered numbers instead of the random ones. An ordered group consciousness creates order in its whole surroundings! 
 
When a great number of people get together very closely, potentials of violence also dissolve. It looks as if here, too, a kind of humanitarian consciousness of all humanity is created. (See: The Global Consciousness  
 
Project)
 
 
To come back to the DNA: It apparently is also an organic superconductor that can work at normal body temperature. Artificial superconductors require extremely low temperatures of between 200 and 140°C to function. As one recently learned, all superconductors are able to store light and thus information. This is a further explanation of how the DNA can store information. There is another phenomenon linked to DNA and wormholes. Normally, these super-small wormholes are highly unstable and are maintained only for the tiniest fractions of a second. Under certain conditions stable wormholes can organize themselves which then form distinctive vacuum domains in which, for example, gravity can transform into electricity. 
 
Vacuum domains are self-radiant balls of ionized gas that contain considerable amounts of energy. There are regions in Russia where such radiant balls appear very often. Following the ensuing confusion the Russians started massive research programs leading finally to some of the discoveries mentions above. Many people know vacuum domains as shiny balls in the sky. The attentive look at them in wonder and ask themselves, what they could be. I thought once: “Hello up there. If you happen to be a UFO, fly in a triangle.” And suddenly, the light balls moved in a triangle. Or they shot across the sky like ice hockey pucks. They accelerated from zero to crazy speeds while sliding gently across the sky. One is left gawking and I have, as many others, too, thought them to be UFOs. Friendly ones, apparently, as they flew in triangles just to please me. Now the Russians found in the regions, where vacuum domains appear often that sometimes fly as balls of light from the ground upwards into the sky, that these balls can be guided by thought. One has found out since that vacuum domains emit waves of low-frequency as they are also produced in our brains. 
 
And because of this similarity of waves they are able to react to our thoughts. To run excitedly into one that is on ground level might not be such a great idea, because those balls of light can contain immense energies and are able to mutate our genes. They can, they don’t necessarily have to, one has to say. For many spiritual teachers also produce such visible balls or columns of light in deep meditation or during energy work which trigger decidedly pleasant feelings and do not cause any harm. Apparently this is also dependent on some inner order and on the quality and provenance of the vacuum domain. There are some spiritual teachers with whom nothing is seen at first, but when one tries to take a photograph while they sit and speak or meditate in hyper communication, one gets only a picture of a white cloud on a chair. In some Earth healing projects such light effects also appear on photographs. Simply put, these phenomena have to do with gravity and anti-gravity forces that are also exactly described in the book and with ever more stable wormholes and hyper-communication and thus with energies from outside our time and space structure. 
 
Earlier generations that got in contact with such hyper-communication experiences and visible vacuum domains were convinced that an angel had appeared before them. And we cannot be too sure to what forms of consciousness we can get access when using hyper-communication. Not having scientific proof for their actual existence (people having had such experiences do NOT all suffer from hallucinations) does not mean that there is no metaphysical background to it. We have simply made another giant step towards understanding our reality. 
 
Official science also knows of gravity anomalies on Earth (that contribute to the formation of vacuum domains), but only of ones of below one percent. But recently, gravity anomalies have been found of between three and four percent. One of these places is Rocca di Papa, south of Rome (exact location in the book “Vernetzte Intelligenz” plus several others). Round objects of all kinds, from balls to full buses, roll uphill. But the stretch in Rocca di Papa is rather short, and defying logic sceptics still flee to the theory of optical illusion (which it cannot be due to several features of the location).

PENTAGON'S $18 MILLION TOOL FOR ASSESSING TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY FAILS TO DELIVER




Rick Bowmer/AP


By Bob Brewin July 18, 2012

For at least two years the Military Health System has touted a software tool under development at a cost of more than $18 million as a way to help gather information about troops impaired by the signature wound of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq -- traumatic brain injury, which results from exposure to roadside bombs. But a six-week probe by Nextgov shows this tool has nothing to do with the management or assessment of TBI cases.

MHS reported that 244,719 troops have been diagnosed with TBI from 2000 through the first quarter of fiscal 2012, up 72,579 from 2009, when it awarded the contract to Vangent Inc., now owned by General Dynamics.

The Defense Health Information Management System, which manages information technology projects for MHS, said in a fact sheet posted on its website in October 2010 that the Traumatic Brain Injury/Behavioral Health software tool would include capabilities to fulfill a Defense Department “mandate requiring neurocognitive readiness assessments for all service members within six months of deployment.”

Defense uses these assessments, including the Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics and the Military Acute Concussion Evaluation, to determine the impact of blast injuries on soldiers' brains when there are no visible head wounds.

Vangent won the original contract for the TBI/BH tool, valued at $14.1 million, in February 2009; a follow-on contract for $4.2 million was awarded in November 2010. In a press release about the follow-on contract, Vangent said its tool “provides the capability for creating and securely storing psychological assessments, behavioral health encounters, as well as sensitive information.”

Army Col. Dacosta Barrow, program manager for DHIMS in early 2011, said in a presentation at the Health Care Information and Management Systems Society conference in Orlando, Fla., on Feb. 23, 2011, that once deployed, “TBI/BH will improve behavioral health-related workflow and capabilities to meet the mandate requiring neurocognitive readiness assessments for all service members within six months of deployment.”

The Air Force evaluated the TBI/BH tool at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia in the fall of 2011 and determined the software did not live up to the hype. Lt. Col. Robert Vanecek, Air Force chief of behavioral health optimization, told Nextgov in an interview last week that “we scratched our heads over the name . . . this project has nothing to do with TBI. It is a standard clinical documentation tool.”


Broken Warriors is an ongoing series on mental health issues in the military.

He added the TBI/BH software does not pull in or use data from traumatic brain injury assessments such as ANAM. Instead, Vanecek said, it recorded information on symptoms such as depression, anger, suicidal ideation and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another limitation was the software tool did not interface with the Defense electronic health record, requiring clinicians to input data into two systems, Vanecek said.

Clinicians reported the system was slow to load and sometimes they aborted the sessions as a result, he said. Patients found the self-assessment portion of the tool complex and off-putting, he added. Vanecek said the military electronic health record system, known as AHLTA, now can handle the functions of TBI/BH software at a lower cost; the Air Force recommended canceling the program.

Nextgov first submitted a query to the Military Health System on June 8, asking about the status of TBI/BH. Cynthia Smith, a Pentagon spokeswoman, said in a statement Tuesday that officials at the Defense Health Information Management System realized in early 2010 the TBI/BH tool had nothing to do with traumatic brain injury; DHIMS received the Air Force evaluation in mid-2011, she said. Smith also said the DHIMS fact sheet for TBI/BH was “was originally inaccurate but later updated.” An extensive Web search showed that DHIMS did update the fact sheet in April, when the reference to TBI was removed and the tool was described simply as “a Web-based application used to document behavioral health care across the services.”

Mark Meudt, a spokesman for General Dynamics, which acquired Vangent in October 2011, said Vangent was tasked by DHIMS to develop only a behavioral health module, not a TBI tool, a task contracted to another company.

Smith said TBI/BH was “not developed to accurately diagnose traumatic brain injuries” but ended up with the moniker because it was lumped in with other programs focused on TBI. Barrow’s slides describing the TBI/BH tool at the Orlando conference also were inaccurate, Smith said, and should have been used to describe another tool.

The TBI/BH contract ended in June, Smith said.

Lt. Col. Millard Brown, an Army psychiatrist and program manager for the Office of the Surgeon General/Army Medical Command Behavioral Health Data Platform, said the service tested the TBI/BH tool at West Point in the fall of 2011. In a statement he said it had “severe limitations,” which he did not specify. He added the ability to create separate, confidential behavioral health notes in the tool “is not currently required nor desired.” Generating patient notes in a system separate from the military electronic health record “causes increased documentation complexity and a decreased capability to appropriately communicate with other medical team members to optimize care.”

Brown said the Army has developed its own behavioral health data platform, which it plans to install in all behavioral health clinics.

Dr. Chrisanne Gordon, chairwoman of Resurrecting Lives, a TBI research, treatment and advocacy group based in Columbus, Ohio, said the amount of money the Pentagon spent on the TBI/BH tool could have paid for a year of cognitive training and rehabilitation for more than 700 troops.
