Text Not Lest Ye Be Judged

After a recent rather disturbing instant message exchange on Facebook I've decided to give text based public sharing of most controversial ideas and thoughts especially political thoughts a permanent rest. I'm also considering closing my Facebook account for the same reasons. Personal thoughts and daily activities posted on facebook are not phone calls face to face visits and can not substitute general friendship or affection.

Political views flung into public forums as posts or text messages are not discussions. Rather they are statements or perhaps even declarations. Words that lack 90% or more of what interpersonal communication is. And yet people assign 100% value to them and take them seriously and react with judgment often very harshly without having a clue as to the origins of the idea in question. This can damage more than relationships. It can damage society and threaten the cohesiveness of the social order.

Regarding The Consumption of Factory Farmed Meats Fish. A commentary on a Time Magazine Article from 2014

Like it or not, you're a carnivore. (wrong: Humans are omnivores) You can eat meat or you can pass it up, but either way, spare yourself any moral agony (remain deluded and in denial) — a new study confirms our brains are hardwired to justify such decisions to ourselves. Clever release from responsibility to the realities of factory farming and mass cruelty.

If a cow could eat you, it would. It wouldn’t give a hoot about your feelings. It wouldn’t kill you quickly or humanely and it certainly wouldn’t worry about whether it was right to make a meal of you in the first place. It would ask itself one question: Am I hungry? If the answer was yes, you’d be lunch. Another subtle justification for factory farming of cows?

The Zimmermann Depression Annihilator

I've used this method to bust depressions of the worst kind.  Often a helper is required to keep you on schedule and to complete the process.  But this process works and it sticks.  Depression does not return after this process.  I had tried hundreds perhaps thousands of solutions over the years but this is my secret weapon.  It works every time.
Antidepressant drugs can't hold a candle to this therapy.
Do this daily and say goodbye to depression.

The Zimmermann Depression Annihilator:
For Major Depression and Dysthymic Disorder

"No depressive episode can stand up to the unbridled power of the ice cold shower"
                                                           Bill Zimmermann             

Step 1. Prepare Gerson coffee cleanse solution. Get into a cold shower (or start briefly in a warm shower and move to cold as soon as possible.  Hold for at least one minute or stop when you are completely comfortable with the cold water flowing over your body.  For added intensity place a bucket of ice cubes in the bath water that accumulates from the shower. Soak in ice water in tub with added magnesium salts or Epsom salts 2 cups (magnesium) for 5 minutes until you're shaking with cold.  This breaks the back of any depression in minutes. 

A HEALTHY PERSPECTIVE - Norwegian Explains Why We Need Bernie Sanders

I simply had to include this on Zimmermania Health because it is so imperative that Americans begin to see that we have SO much room for improvement!  We can do better.  Check out what this guy from Norway (currently No 1 economy in the world) has to say.

Andreas Fossåen Dybfest from Norway explains why we need Bernie:

I'm gonna drop a bomb of reality on the sceptics amongst my American friends here...

I'm Norwegian and I live in a social democracy.
We have BOTH capitalistic values and socialistic values.
In fact, for a social democracy to work, we need both.
Capitalism builds wealth, while socialism distributes the wealth so as many as possible have a higher education and good health; which leads to better capitalism and bigger economy.

Everything Bernie Sanders presents to you, is my reality.
Our good values have been fought through by people like Bernie Sanders. And many have been inspired by your very own Franklin D. Roosevelt!

I pay ~26% tax(cap on 28%), for that I get: Free health-care
Free education
Bigger tax refunds the more loan I have in the bank
8 hour working days
5 weeks paid vacation
A decent pension fund
The lower income I have, the lower tax I pay
Parents pay less.
A mother gets 46 weeks of maternity leave, where the father can take out 10 weeks if he wants to. This strengthen the bond with the baby and it's very important for kids’ mental health and development.

Norway is at the top of UN’s Human Development Index and Education Index. We also rank best in the world on child poverty.
We've ranked #1 in prosperity for 12 years.
Our neighbour Denmark is #1 in business.
We must be doing something right...
(We actually got our biggest wealth, thanks to you).

If socialism gets too much power, you can say it becomes communism and if capitalism gets too much power, it becomes plutocracy/oligarchy. The key is balance. Right now we're on the right-winged side and I fear we're walking the same path as you have done...

Right now you're in the plutocracy/ oligarchy section, and a lot of great minds and achievers are stuck in poverty, with no chance of getting out. You already have socialism; but it's broken, expensive and ineffective.

The thought of the US as a social democracy, is breathtaking. The strength and progress you would achieve as a nation, with your population, would be amazing and lift the bar to a whole new dimension…
If you think because our population is a lot smaller, it can't be used on you; then you're wrong. Don't compare population numbers, compare percentages…
F.ex: If our population represent one of your major cities, use the model on all major cities...

Social democracy IS the modern democracy, because it represent a whole nation and not only a few rich getting richer. Not only do I think it will work for you as well, but with your current wealth and population, you would be the greatest social democracy in the world.

This is why you need Bernie Sanders, he is a strong leader with GREAT human ethics and morals
 If you're not a billionaire, you're ignorant to not vote him, because that man represents YOU!

It's not done in a day, but I don't live in a fantasy world...

Don't let this chance pass you USA, the movement is ENORMOUS, be proud of your middle-class

and VOTE!

Adaptogens Might Just Be Better Than Medicine

Adaptogens Might Just Be Better Than Medicine

Adaptogens were discovered by a Russian scientist in 1947, fully defined by two Russian doctors in 1958 and finally accepted by the US FDA in 1988. An adaptogen does three things. 1) It produces no negative side effects. 2) It effects more than one system of the body, such as the nervous system and hormone system. And 3) It balances body functions, such as raising blood sugar that is too low in one individual while lowering blood sugar in another individual where it is too high. Adaptogens help the body deal with stress.

In an earlier newsletter, I talked about the eight benefits of turmeric, which has been has valued in East Indian medicine for thousands of years. In this newsletter, I'd like to cover Indian ginseng, or ashwagandha, as it's more commonly known.

Here are some of its benefits.

1. Reduce stress

Adaptogens in general are known as stress reducers and ashwagandha certainly does this.


2. Rejuvenate the immune system

Ashwagandha has been used for hundreds of years to improve the immune system and modern research is verifying this.

3. Prevent and combat age-related chronic diseases

Ashwagandha "possesses a wide array of therapeutic properties including anti-arthritic, anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and [heart protective]." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25787309

4. Improve brain function and prevents Alzheimer's Disease

In addition to preventing and combating other age-related diseases, ashwagandha has been used to sharpen mental facilities and combat neuro-degeneration.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24882401

5. Depression

Ashwagandha and turmeric are two of the five herbs in Protandim.

Spirit Science YouTube Channel

Spirit Science is a YouTube Channel that is refreshing clear and a very good study of the modern science of spirituality.  Here are all 15 videos in one.  Over four hours of cools spiritual theory about human origins ...science?  Maybe.  Fun?  Hell yes. Some may be quite "woo-woo" to some of you but more of what you will learn isn't. Enjoy.
