DHA – Essential For Optimal Health – Dr. Jack Kruse

Recently there has been an increasing focus on the importance of adding fish oils to the diet. Research has clearly demonstrated the health maintaining effects of adequate levels of EPA and DHA, the primary constituents of fish oil. These essential substances are the most deficient nutrients in the modern Western diet and research has determined that this widespread deficiency is linked to virtually every modern disease process.

EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) with a double bond (C=C) at the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain. EPA is necessary for the manufacture of Series-3 prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes which are all essential to the functioning of the human body as complex hormones that work on the tissue and cellular level. DHA is the predominant fatty acid in the human brain, facilitating visual and cognitive function, forming neuroreceptors for neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, as well as serving as a storage molecule that the body can reconvert to EPA when needed. DHA is not burned for fuel. It is reserved for the most critical parts of our nervous system, namely synapses and photoreceptors. The oxidizing power of the photon actually causes DHA to degrade under sunlight’s oxidizing power which is why the retina has more DHA per unit volume than any other part of the brain. It is also why macular degeneration is associated with low DHA levels.

The concentration of DHA in our brain resulted in a quantum electromagnetic computer. This quantum electromagnetic computer works on the movement of electrons, and turning these electrons into photons.

DHA is the most unsaturated of cell membrane fatty acids found in all mammals. Omega-3 fatty acids are also an important constituent of all cellular membranes, giving them fluidity and facilitating all metabolic and bioelectrical processes. DHA provided the “basic membrane” backbone of the new photoreceptors that converted photons into direct current electricity, laying the foundation for the evolution of the nervous system and the brain in animals. DHA is also the ultimate EMF antenna for the native electromagnetic force.  This is why the human neocortex is un-myelinated and loaded with DHA in these neurons.  This allows these electrons to be delocalized, or ‘moved’, under the direction of the electromagnetic force, making us more sensitive to electrons in our environment. EPA and DHA are so critical for the healthy functioning of the human body that their deficiency contributes to the following disorders:

ADD/ADHD                                         dyslexia

depression                                             weight gain

heart disease                                          allergies

arthritis                                                  violent tendencies

memory problems                                 cancer

ulcerative colitis                                     scleroderma

Sjogren’s syndrome                                hypertension

bipolar disorder                                      irritability

alligator skin                                          patches of pale skin on cheeks

cracked skin on hand                             macular degeneration

chronic fatigue                                       fibromyalgia

The typical Western diet is extremely deficient in EPA and DHA, which has resulted in a tremendous increase in the number of people experiencing the disorders listed above. So the obvious question is, “Why the widespread deficiency?”. First, a bit of background on the source of EPA and DHA for dietary intake. The ‘parent’ form of omega-3 fatty acids is ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), which is found in green and leafy plants such as grass, as well as in plankton, chia seeds, walnuts, hemp seeds  and flax seeds. When a grass-eating animal or a plankton-eating fish consumes this substance, a series of enzymatic and metabolic conversions take place to transform the ALA into its derivative forms, EPA and DHA. Cold-water fish are very efficient at converting the ALA in plankton, while herbivores make these conversions easily, although they are able to make only small amounts of DHA. Humans make these conversions also, but much less efficiently than herbivores and numerous factors may complicate this process.

Prior to modern times, traditional and primitive sources of EPA and DHA in the diet have included such things as the meat and organs of wild game and other exclusively grass-fed meats and wild-caught cold-water seafood.  (DHA) docosahexaenoic acid is the main lipid in the marine food chain.  DHA is found in algae.  Algae uses photosynthesis to power its lifecycle.  It is also the base food of the marine food chain.  All marine life is tied to algae.  All sea life is tied to DHA. DHA allows us to be ultimate electron collectors and photon creators in all our tissues. Why is oxygen critical to humans, specifically?  Electrons from oxygen create the omega 3 class of PUFA’s. 

DHA is in every living thing with a neural circuit.  It turns out that DHA’s related molecule,  DPA, is easier to make, takes less energy to make, is more abundant, and only differs from DHA by two protons.  DPA is the major omega 3 found in the land food chain of mammals. DPA is easier to make but DHA has an additional property that allows life to collect electrons from the environment in massive amounts. Humans have more DHA than any other animal alive.  Since humans cannot synthesize DHA well in their cells,  it tells us we had to originally reside an environment with an abundance of DHA.

Unfortunately the modern Western diet is not centered around seafood in order to provide an adequate amount of DHA and the further that diet departs from a concentration on seafood, the sicker society gets. In studies today, DHA intake is directly tied to improvement in human health in every organ system. Modern dietary sources of preformed EPA and DHA include wild-caught seafood from cold waters, such as salmon, halibut, cod, herring, mackerel, and sardines. Albacore tuna may contain small amounts. Farm-raised fish such as Atlantic salmon and other varieties are usually devoid of significant omega-3 content. Wild game is another good source of omega-3 fatty acids, although the quantities are much lower than those found in seafood. Exclusively grass-fed and finished beef, lamb, venison and buffalo are also good sources, although, like wild game they contain much lower amounts than seafood.

Unless specifically labeled as 100% grass fed and finished, assume that animals have been raised in feedlots, eliminating virtually all omega-3 fatty acid content. Any grain feeding that takes place before going to market will drastically reduce the amount of omega-3 in the meat. It is advisable initially to supplement EPA and DHA from either fish oil or krill oil in order to rapidly mitigate the body’s deficiency state.

Supplements of flaxseed oil and hemp oil are commonly promoted as a rich source of vegetarian omega-3 fatty acids. Although this is true, flax and hemp contain ALA, the parent form of omega-3, and they contain zero EPA or DHA. ALA requires enzymatic and metabolic processes in order to be converted to EPA and DHA. These conversions occur very inefficiently, if at all. For individuals with optimal amounts of omega-6 and no trans-fats in their diets, the maximum amount of EPA converted is around 6% and DHA around 4%.

Cod liver oil is an excellent source of EPA and DHA, which also contains vitamin A and D. Regular fish oil or Antarctic krill oil supplements, combined with small amounts of cod liver oil, are the best supplemental sources. Many companies molecularly distill their fish oil to remove toxins and impurities. Nordic Naturals offers a complete line of fish oil and cod liver oil products that are produced with the highest standards in the industry.

Other important supplements to take along with the fish oils are vitamin E, CoQ10, Iodine, selenium and vitamin D, all of which will protect these oils from oxidizing and becoming rancid in the body. The addition of dietary saturated fats, such as coconut oil, also is important for protection and use of omega-3 fatty acids along with its own nutritional and healing benefits. Standard fish oil capsules contain roughly 180mg of EPA and 120mg of DHA.

A common daily dosage recommendation is to take one capsule for every 10 pounds of body weight or 1 teaspoon of fish oil for every 40 pounds of body weight. If you are using omega-3 fatty acids for health, mood, or cognitive enhancement, roughly 2000mg per day is probably adequate. If needed for mood elevation or stabilization in more serious mood disorders or bi-polar disorder, 10,000mg of omega-3 fatty acids or more may be appropriate for some individuals. The traditional Greenland Eskimo diet included at least 14,000mg per day of omega-3 fatty acids. This amount of omega-3’s from marine sources, strongly underscores the need for modern humans to ingest much higher quantities than are typical of the Western diet. As supplementation brings the body’s amount of EPA and DHA up to optimal health sustaining levels, one should add an increasing amount of cold water fish, as listed above, to the diet. The best source of EPA and DHA is ultimately from nature, as designed.

How Chiropractic Damages Your Spine

Don’t I Need a Chiropractor?

It may surprise you, but a chiropractor is the last person you should see if you have back pain (or anything else for that matter) and what’s more… a chiropractor can do absolutely nothing to repair your back.

Why Not a Chiropractor?

Chiropractors perform a type of physical therapy known as spinal manipulation. This spinal manipulation is a very aggressive and violent method of moving the bones of your spine – supposedly – back into alignment. (Or, as some claim, to get stuck vertebrae moving again.)

But wait a minute… if you’re like 90% of us… you don’t have a bone problem at all. What you have is a SUPPORT STRUCTURE problem, which simply means that something is wrong with the muscles, discs and ligaments surrounding your spine… rather than something being wrong with the bones themselves.

You see, the bones of the spine do not support themselves. They are supported by the surrounding soft tissue… namely the muscles, ligaments, tendons and discs that I just mentioned. If something is wrong with these surrounding SUPPORT STRUCTURES, no amount of adjusting or manipulating the bones is going to change that.

Chiropractors Cannot Align Your Spine

Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

Moving the bones once a month will not correct the problem. The bones will simply return to whatever position the support structure dictates even before you leave the doctor’s office.

On the other hand, if you restore the disks, ligaments and muscles you will restore the alignment of your spine. It’s that simple. That’s what rebuilding your back is all about and anything less is really just a waste of time.

So, if the chiropractor isn’t correcting the alignment of your spine, just what is he doing? We’ll take a closer look at that next…

Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

If you’ve ever received chiropractic treatment then you’re no doubt familiar with that satisfying little pop your back makes at the hands of a skillful chiropractor.

Well, it might interest you to know that the sound you hear when a chiropractor adjusts your back is not the sound of bones being re-aligned at all. What it is is nothing more than the sound of a temporary vacuum that is created whenever any joint is suddenly separated.

To put it in a slightly different perspective, it’s the same sound you hear whenever someone cracks their knuckles.

And – just as with knuckle cracking – the two bones will immediately return to the exact same position they were in prior to this little popping event. (At least you better hope they do because, if they don’t, you’re going to be in excruciating pain with a dislocated joint.)

Chiropractic manipulation may feel good, but it’s entirely unnecessary and has nothing to do with re-aligning your spine. In fact, it can be harmful (and potentially dangerous) especially for someone with osteoporosis.

So Why Do Chiropractors Do It?

Simple… I believe they do it for show.

I believe they do it because you can’t do it yourself and because it makes you think they’ve done something really spectacular something your back needed in order to recover.

And since you can’t do it yourself, doesn’t this make you entirely dependent on the chiropractor for this magic little pop?

Exactly… they now have a patient for life.

Chiropractic Psychological Manipulation

The chiropractor knows that it’s this magic little pop that tricks you into believing that chiropractic is real. He knows that it’s this satisfying sound and brief pleasant sensation that puts you under his spell and keeps you coming back again and again.

How Chiropractic Damages Your Spine

How Chiropractic Damages Your Spine

So far we’ve seen that it’s anatomically impossible for a chiropractor to “realign” your spine simply by manually moving the bones. We’ve learned that it is the support structure surrounding your spine that determines the shape and position of the bones, not the bones themselves.

We’ve also examined the fact that chiropractic adjustments are nothing more than an illusionist’s trick designed to fool you into thinking you’ve just had a “medical procedure” when, in fact, all they’ve done is crack your knuckles. It may create a momentary “feel good” sensation, but it really has no healing powers.

The biggest problem with chiropractic isn’t that it just doesn’t work or that it’s simply a hoax. No, the biggest problem is that it is damaging your spine and even putting your life at risk.

How Chiropractic Damages Your Ligaments

How Chiropractic Damages Your Ligaments

How often have you heard your chiropractor casually warn that you “may feel some discomfort” after the adjustment and your pain may even increase for a day or two. Not to worry, this is normal.

Why does he do this?

What is it about spinal manipulation that causes him to issue this veiled warning?

Torn Tissue Fibers

What most chiropractors won’t tell you (either because they don’t know or because they simply don’t care) is that the high velocity thrust he is about to use on your spine will often cause microscopic tearing of the ligaments (including the annular ring of the intervertebral discs).

There is no doubt that the immediate feeling of release after a successful manipulation does bring about a sense of well-being. However, cracking like this is often too rough. Too many tissue fibres are broken Microscopic scarring forms around the joint… [6]

This constant tearing (even though on a microscopic level) of the discs and ligaments is counterproductive and can only serve to make things worse. It contributes to degenerative disk disease, hypermobility in the joints and some doctors are even starting to identify this condition as “over-manipulation syndrome.”

As one former chiropractor warns:

Rotation manipulations to the upper cervical and thoracic spine can create progressive hypermobility in the capsular ligaments. Consequently, chiropractors utilizing these procedures indiscriminately without valid assessments to diagnose legitimate ligament contractures put their patients at risk for iatrogenic hypermobility [1]

So we see that – instead of improving your situation – spinal manipulation does just the opposite. It actually tears tissue fibers and degrades the health of your spine. This is especially true for people over the age of 40.

All manipulation should be avoided for older individuals who are more prone to permanent ligament deformation. The most likely area to be injured is the capsular ligaments of the lower cervical spine since they have the least protection and are vulnerable to rotational thrusts. [1]

The facts are clear; chiropractic manipulation is not a smart choice for treating back or neck pain. It causes — at best — microscopic tearing of the annular ring of the disc as well as the surrounding ligaments. This repetitive injury to the support structure of your back is going to leave you stiffer and more prone to injury the longer this abuse is allowed to continue.

But that’s not the end of the story. For you see, if you do have any form of degenerative disk disease (and almost everyone over the age of 20 does to a certain extent) then chiropractic spinal manipulation is the worst possible thing you can do as we’ll see next.

Not only does HVLA (High velocity, low amplitude) manipulation contribute to degenerative disc disease, but also recent studies have shown conclusively that it causes herniated discs and even nerve damage.

Chiropractic vs. Common Sense

Your back needs to be stretched and exercised frequently throughout the day, every day if it’s truly going to get better. And it should be mobilized gently… not in a way that’s just going to add to your troubles later on down the road.

If you recall in the previous article we asked the question, Don’t I Need a Chiropractor? By this time I hope you’ve already arrived at the obvious answer.

 

COVID-19 Is A Manufactured Pandemic

“The following is from a medical forum. The writer, who is a widely respected professional scientist in the US, prefers to stay anonymous, because presenting any narrative different than the official one can cause you a lot of stress in the toxic environment caused by the scam which surrounds COVID-19 these days. – Julian Rose

***

I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

The problem is the test is known not to work.

It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery.

Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.

And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.

If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.

If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.

And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.

Do you see where this is going yet? If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.

They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them. A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive

PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.

There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.

All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease.

Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.

You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on.

Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.

Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically.

Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.

But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.

1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent. Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.

2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.

3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.

4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen.

Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.

They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.”(1)
