How well can you predict your next mood swing? How well can anyone? Itís an existential dilemma for many of us but for the military, the ability to treat anxiety, depression, memory loss and the symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder has become one of the most important battles of the post-war period.

This is merely another signal blocking technique that works temporarily. It blocks the retrieval of the traumatic memory but it does not resolve it.

All the techniques, whether EMDR, Magnetic Cranial Stimulation, Stellate Ganglion Injection,Pharmacological, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, even Virtual Reality if not done properly will not heal the stored traumatic memory.

There is a much simpler method that I have used, even with severely disabled Vietnam Vets who carried their traumatic memory for 40+ years that is permanent, non-invasive, takes less than 5 minutes and works every time.(As long as the physical brain functions are not severely damaged from TBI or similar wounds)

Ever since I realized that people’s stored memories are physical tangible objects to me that are easily located even when deeply suppressed, I’ve been able to show people how to heal the emotional wound permanently in a few minutes. I discovered this a few years ago.

I’ve done it with rape victims, abused children who are now adults, accident victims, people who are unable to heal from grief, it doesn’t matter the type or severity of the trauma. There is no hypnosis or placebo effect utilized.

About 50% of the time when I work with a person, they can’t even remember what the traumatic event was. Karl Pribram was correct that memories are stored as holograms, but not in the brain neural synapses as he, Eric Kandel and Joe Ledoux theorized. If they knew where the memory was actually stored it is as easy to heal as wiping a patch of dirt off a piece of clothing, and a lot faster.

Hyperbaric treatments are also being used. But, how silly would a non-invasive, safe treatment be?/s

That would be a possibility, except oligarchs like Gates, et al wish to promote liberal mindset, so I doubt that will get brain mapped, and certainly will not be treated as the mental disorder it is. The Council of Thirty-three serve their father and only their father’s wishes.

I know how to treat PTSD. It doesn’t involve anything fancy.

Open the bible, read it, turn your heart over to Jesus, and ask him to take up your burdens. It works 100% of the time.

As for myself, I’m a vet of 3 tours. I don’t have PTSD. Though I still shed a tear for my brothers in arms north and south of the border.

Interesting stuff there though, though not sure how you do that.

You must always find the very first event, the perceptual programming event. Often it is from an experience the mother had while the child was in the womb. A child in the womb cannot differentiate between their experiences and their mother’s experiences. Thus the child stores the memory from the emotional perspective of the mother and carries it throughout their lives.

Yes, memories begin at conception when the tabula rasa is imprinted. Believe it or not, the child actually feels the profound “Love” between the parents when they are conceived.

As we repeatedly have similar traumatic experiences in our lives it is as though we are projecting the original programming event on the current experience and the emotion is compounded, often exponentially. Conventional psychotherapy or depth psychology works from the inside out, similar to peeling the layers of an onion from the inside out. That’s a long drawn out and painful process. I work outside in. When you decrease the emotional intensity of the perceptual programming event to zero, it’s like multiplying by zero, you always end up with zero. Thus all similar traumas in a persons life fall away like dominoes without even addressing them.... instantly. I’ve done this thousands of times and it works virtually every time.

One of the most profound was a woman who was in a physically abusive relationship where she had been beaten to the point of hospitalization four times. She stated that it was as though she was addicted to her husband. I never once talked about her husband. I merely found the childhood trauma and healed it with her in a few minutes.

The next day she called me to say that she no longer felt any affection for her husband and the addictive feeling was gone. I explained that she no longer needed a surrogate to project her unresolved issue onto when it is resolved.

In that one, I also worked with the husband and removed his need to beat his wife and the relationship continued.

This work is easy as their stored memories in their soul are physical and tangible to me. It’s like picking up sticks in a yard. You just take a hold of them and throw them away.... actually I just say a prayer and the high frequency of the prayer transmutes the low frequency stored memory.

I’ve noticed that the hyperbaric treatments cause a reflex action of hypoxia, especially in the eyes that causes more physical damage.

Corneal damage may occur if left in the chamber for too long with a higher concentration of O2. My Lyme doc, while delighted I was doing this, warned me of that possible complication.

My brother in law was in the first Gulf War. He showed me some mail he has been getting from the VA for him to come down to a VA facility and get tested for PSTD. He says it’s all an attempt to make it illegal for him to own firearms.

“If only a chip could be used to treat liberalism.”

Actually, all you have to do is knock the chip off the shoulder and people cease to be liberal.

The core of liberalism is jealousy and hatred of others who have it “better.”

My educated guess is that trauma is stored throughout the Brain and Body!

that :gut brain” that we’ve “been hearing about” is likely the center of such “memory”

Some veterans do have real PTSD. Most do not, but VA shrinks have been telling them they do for the last 40 years. What they have is called “life” and dealing with life and moving on. How many WW2 vets came back and immediately shrinks started telling them if they had killed anyone or witnessed anything bad they must have mental problems. Hardly any. These men had brass balls, came back to the states, raised their family, moved on with their lives, and built America. Vietnam vets came home as “baby killers” and were told by draft-dodging shrinks that something was wrong with them. Instead of telling them to be proud of their service they were told how to cope with the “shame” of doing something that didn’t really want to do. The process is being repeated again in the latest banana republic wars. And I agree 100% with taking your problems to the Lord. He is the cure for everything.

Close...

It's in the poop...

In a follow-up experiment, Bercik's team corralled two strains of mice born and raised in a sterile environment: timid BALB/c mice, and NIH Swiss mice, known for their courageous, exploratory behavior. The researchers then colonized each group of these "germ-free" mice with bacteria from mice of the opposite strain. The result of this microbial swap was uncanny: The normally anxiety-prone BALB/c mice became much more fearless explorers, while the typically daring NIH Swiss mice suddenly grew more hesitant and shy. The results, Bercik says, underscore that at least in laboratory mice, some seemingly intrinsic characteristics are driven not solely by the animals themselves, but also by microbes inhabiting the gut. Whether the pattern holds up in humans, whose guts harbor more diverse microbial communities, remains to be seen, Bercik says.

Questions

Can they be hacked?
Will the chips be built in China?

How long before they perfect an implant to trickle electricity into the pleasure center at the Mexican doc in the box and we become a nation of wire head addicts? Drug problem solved, political unrest solved. Desire for liberty and freedom? Who cares? Just keep those electrons flowing into my head.

After eight years on Mars, Malachi Constant’s life on Earth has been reduced to fuzzy fragments and unreliable flashes. He goes by a new name, Unk, and has had his memory erased seven times. The antenna which was implanted into Unk’s skull allows others to control him, bombarding him with unbearable pain whenever he tries to concentrate or do anything beyond his duties in the Martian army. However, there’s some irrepressible part of Unk’s brain that resists the manipulation and tries to piece together what is going on around him.

The hemoglobin in the blood adjusts to compensate for various O2 levels. I’m not sure what the transition adjustment time is but the body is functioning O2 deficient after it adjusts for the higher levels in the chamber.

I observed a woman get a bleeding capillary in her eye due to the excessive vascular growth caused by the vasco endothelial growth factor (VEGF) which is a mRNA. VEGF increased in the bloodstream when their is O2 deficiency.

It would seem that there is a way to cope with changes in oxygen levels. I’m getting older and live at over 9,000 feet with some physical difficulties but no mood problems at all.

Sleep apnea does the same thing as the high elevation, or worse.

"Sleep apnea does the same thing as the high elevation, or worse."

Maybe deleterious for some. I don't have any problem with it, and my nearby neighbors are in their 80s (only about 4 miles away). My physical problems aren't all that bad and were caused by old physical injuries. No emotional problems at all despite the old injuries.

Some severe asthmatics have done better at high elevations, too. There aren't as many sources of pollution or as many lowland allergens.

Granted, many who aren't skilled enough in coping with higher altitudes in remote areas tend to have problems (high altitude related physical sensitivities, lack of appropriate and needed polycythemia, lack of preparations for extreme cold, lack of motivation to exercise, lack of education in proper technologies for off-grid heating, lack of practice in various maintenance technologies, dependencies on services, etc.). Populated resorts with services are there for such people, though.
