Understanding Inflammation

Key Points:

  1. Excessive chronic inflammation is the primary cause of virtually every chronic disease of aging:
    • Arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis
    • Chronic Pain
    • Osteoporosis
    • Dementia: Alzheimer’s type, Lewy Body, Vascular dementia
    • Heart attacks, stroke, and vascular disease
    • Multiple Sclerosis, ALS,
    • Diabetes & Obesity
    • Most forms of Cancer
    • Feeling Old
  2. Inflammation is controlled by our Immune System (which is controlled by our brain)
  3. 80% of our Immune System is located around our digestive tract (gut)
  4. Our lifestyle is either activating the “ON” switch of inflammation or activating the balanced On/Off regulation of Wellness
  5. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) aka photo biomodulation is a powerful tool to turn off excessive inflammation and the lasers we use at Renovare are FDA level 1a cleared (the most stringent research-based approval available) to reduce nociceptive chronic pain ANYWHERE in the body.
  6. The resolution of inflammation is fibrosis (scar tissue) that creates joint and fascial restriction and chronic pain. These tissues need to glide and slide to close the pain gate and keep us flexible and pain-free. 
  7. Resolution of inflammation in the lung (from asthma, infection, pneumonia, COVID, COVID vaccines) is fibrosis leading to scarring and lung damage.
  8. Spinal adjusting/manipulation of joints and soft tissue is required to improve the mechanical integrity lost from fibrosis to create the neuro sequence closing the pain gate & restoring healing and health.

The PgE2 (Prostaglandin E2) Inflammation Pathway involves:

Eicosanoids – inflammatory prostaglandins: our Omega 3/6 ratio controls this signaling pathway to a large extent

  • The same cascade that creates inflammation creates cancer
  • Too much Omega 6 high linoleic vegetable oil drives inflammation – the wrong fats may be even worse than too much sugar
  • Quality Omega 3 EPA-DHA Fish oil dampens inflammation
  • Low level lasers dampen inflammation with NO SIDE EFFECTS, only side benefits like:
    • Systemic Energy Boost – Give Your Cells Back the Energy of Your Youth!
    • Reduced Swelling & Inflammation and Pain Relief
    • Accelerated Tissue Regeneration
    • Activation of anti-aging/longevity pathways
    • Improved blood flow to promote accelerated healing & repair
    • Neurogenesis – making new nerve cells
    • Mitochondrial Biogenesis – making new mitochondria
    • Stem cell production and integration
    • Healing of Leaky Gut and Leaky Brain
    • Promote all antioxidant systems including glutathione
    • Protects from free-radical damage                
    • Increased parasympathetic activity/Vagal stimulation for calm, peaceful, digestion, detox, and reduced inflammation
    • Repair and protect against DNA & RNA damage & telomere shortening
    • Decrease stress hormones and promote youth hormones like HGH
    • Healing with No Drugs, No Surgery, No Side-Effects

635 nm Red Lasers (LLLT) knocks out COX /prostaglandin, IL-18, & TNF Cytokine pain pathways. Violet lasers knock out IL-6 cytokine pain pathway.

Understanding Cytokines

  • Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is the most powerful Cytokine “ON” switch for inflammation and is converted in the liver to hsCRP, a key inflammation heart attack & stroke risk lab marker that appears on lab test panels.
  • 405 nm Violet Laser knocks out the IL-6 Cytokine pathway especially well
  • 635 nm Red Laser knock out IL-18
  • Both lasers turn on IL-10  – an ideal combination

VAT is an Inflammation Factory

Visceral (around the abdominal organs) Adipose (fat) Tissue is abbreviated as VAT.  This is often called the “Fat that Kills” since it strongly elevates heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, dementia, chronic pain, and chronic disease risk. VAT turns on inflammation dramatically.

VAT can be stubborn and resistant to most weight loss programs. What works is repairing our Metabolism to correct Insulin Resistance or Metabolic Syndrome

Based on our years of experience and training in functional medicine and functional neurology, we have created an Integrated Metabolism Repair program below:

Renovare Metabolism

Repair & Fat Burn Programs

2X/week sessions:

  • Zerona FDA approved Fat burning laser sessions
  • 30 min NOW-T and Power Plate session after Zerona session
  • Custom supplement, lifestyle, and support program to help you each step of the way in repairing your metabolism

The FDA approved Zerona Laser system energizes fat (adipose) cells to release their stored triglycerides (fat) into our circulatory system where they can be carried away to be burned as energy in our mitochondria.

An awesome quick and easy boost to fat loss in any area of the body

The End of Aging?

Cutting edge research in cellular genetics is showing us that aging is not normal or inevitable.  In fact, the top research labs are showing us that Aging is a disease that can be prevented, slowed, and potentially even reversed.

Most of us are going to live longer than we think. Are we going to live better – enjoying high level energy, fitness, and a happy brain throughout our lifespan?

Is there any point in keeping our bodies alive if our brain is failing & we FEEL decrepit & even older than our age?

Is suffering with decay, degeneration, inflammation, pain, fatigue, and depression really living? Is it inevitable? This “accelerated aging & decay” is the root problem.

Extending our health span – so we enjoy high level energy and youthful vitality to the very end of our lifespan is the most important. Imagine, no chronic disease, no need for drugs, no doctor visits for disease problems, no suffering in a nursing home.

It is also about staying healthy to beyond age 100 or beyond age 120 and living our passion and making a difference in the world – right up to the end of our lifespan.

Summary:

  • Aging is not inevitable – it can be prevented and even reversed
  • The DNA blueprint to be young is always present – even when we are old
  • Most of feeling “old” is not from DNA damage (our computer hard-drive) but from epigenetic problems (our software)
  • We have a software backup of youth – even when we are old
  • We activate this epigenetic software of youth through:
    • Intermittent fasting – this can be done easily with ketogenic fasting
    • High Intensity Interval Training – just 15 minutes 2X/week can do the job – especially when combined with Intermittent fasting.
    • Low Level Laser Therapy – the kind of lasers we use at Renovare have been shown to directly boost NAD+ and indirectly boost this anti-aging pathway as well.
    • Temperature challenges – get warm as in a sauna or summer in Arizona and then get cool as in a cold/cool shower or immersion in an unheated pool in the winter
    •  Specific nutraceuticals:
      • Methylated Resveratrol – Resveratin Plus is what I use.
      • Nicotinomide Mononucleotide (NMN) – a NAD+ precursor – needs to be liposomal and combined with trimethylglycine to be most effective.  NAD+ Gold from Quicksilver Scientific is best.
      • Time released Alpha Lipoic Acid. ALA Max is what I use.
      • Berberine, Burdock Root, Curcumin, Tumeric, and Quercitin.
    • Great sleep and stress management – Our Peaceful Brain Training Class is a fun, easy way to learn the tools that work best for you

Too much comfort, too much artificial, nutrient-deprived processed food, too little physical challenge, too much stress, too much sitting in the easy chair ACCELERATES our aging.   We need some discomfort & challenge to stay youthful.

COMFORT KILLS

What if chronic pain, excessive inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, osteoporosis, and arthritis are just SYMPTOMS of accelerated aging & decay?  What would happen if be changed our focus to ending this plague of accelerated aging & decay?

The good news is that research with identical twins shows us that only 20% of our aging and health-span is genetic.  The rest is our lifestyle choices and is in our hands.

Dr. David Sinclair, Ph.D is a molecular geneticist, professor at Harvard,  and leading researcher in aging.  His research delves into why we age – the underlying cell mechanisms behind aging. In his excellent book, “Lifespan – Why we Age and What We Can Do About It” explains that aging is not caused by problems with our DNA.  Rather, aging results from breakdown in our epigenetic cell repair programs for DNA.

Our genes containing the blueprints to make every protein & body part are the Hardware of our computer.  Our epigenetics is the software.  Without our software (epigenetics) working properly, our computer is just a heavy piece of frustrating junk.

Like our personal computer, our genetics (DNA) is the hard drive that stores the information and programs.  Our epigenetics is our software that includes DNA repair programs.  Much like hard drive disc repair programs, our epigenetic software must keep up with repairs or our software becomes corrupted and our computer “ages” and slips towards “dis­-ease”.

In our cells, some DNA damage is inevitable and normal. This is not the cause of aging.  We have complex DNA repair pathways called “epigenetics” that quickly and efficiently repair our DNA damage when working properly. Failure of these epigenetic “software” programs to keep up with needed “hardware” repairs leads to decay and aging.

You can also think of DNA like a beautiful Steinway Grand Piano.   Our Epigenetics is the pianist – the piano player that determines & plays the songs as well as repairing & tuning our piano so we enjoy music (Wellness) rather than the noise, decay, decline, & disease of Aging. We need a skilled and healthy pianist to enjoy the music of Wellness for Life.

Dr. David Sinclair’s research-supported Information Theory of Aging describes aging as a breakdown of our epigenetic software triggered by lifestyle choices that fail to fit our unique needs.  This leads to so much DNA damage that our software fails to keep up and our cells breakdown leading to the damage, inflammation, & decay that we call Aging. This is neither normal nor inevitable.

Dr. Sinclair’s lab has shown that there is a backup copy of youth in our cells. In mice, his lab has reset the youthful copy to reverse aging. With cloning, using a cell from an older animal results in a youthful “baby”, not an old baby for this reason.

We have 3 genes on the body that reverse our aging when we turn them on.  Jelly fish do this all the time so they don’t age.  We are learning to do this in mice, dogs, and even humans.

Three of the major age reversing genes that we all share are called Sirtuins, mTOR, and AMPK.  These 3 genes are critical to maintain our youthful, healthy software(epigenome):

Sirtuins

  • Especially effective at maintaining our youthful epigenomic software
  • Activated by methylated resveratrol (pterostilbene) concentrates
  • Activated by Nicotinomide Mononucleotide (NMN) – professional-grade supplements that are liposomal formulations combined with trimethylglycine appear the most effective.  The formulation I trust and take personally is Quicksilver Scientific’s NAD+ Gold.  NAD decline underlies accelerated aging and inflammation.  Boosting NAD levels with NMN is key to support:
    • Improved mitochondrial function
    • Youthful metabolism
    • High level stamina and youthful vigor
    • Cellular repair and protection
    • Improved Brain health: youthful memory, focus, and concentration

Harvard researchers have found that injecting NMN into old mice for just one week resulted in their mitochondria becoming like those of young mice.  In fact, when NMN was first give to old mice, they broke the treadmill!  The lab staff called it the “Great Mouse Treatmill Failure of 2017” when the old mice exceeded the tracking program limit of 3 kilometers – no mouse of any age had ever exceeded this before! Imagine being able to run an ultra-marathon as a senior citizen.

We can also activate our age-reversing Sirtuin gene with:

  • Low level Laser therapy (LLLT) or healing cold lasers like our Erchonia PL-T, FX 405, or EVRL lasers. 

The graphic below shows how the LLLT stimulus activates receptors leading to elevated sirtuin (Sirt1) activating the anti-aging effects of making brand new mitochondria (mitochondrial biogenesis), apoptosis (getting rid of decrepit old cells that create disease), and cell protecting anti-oxidant effects.

Intermittent fasting: I use green tea, MCT oil, and Collagen protein in my breakfast drink on my workout days.  It increases my strength up to 20%.  This carb fasting approach triggers ketosis so I am burning fat for fuel which is much more efficient than burning sugar leading to increased muscle strength & efficiency.

  • High intensity interval training – I combine intermittent keto fasting with my NOW-T exercise sessions 2X/week with Austin in our clinic.  It takes just 15 minutes of variable resistance training 2X/week to powerfully activate the anti-aging pathways while boosting mitochondrial wellness.

The mTOR/mTORC1 gene pathway (shown above) integrates the signals between food availability and cell growth.

Food available = cell growth. Too much food available = too much growth leading to:

  • Cancer
  • Atherosclerotic heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Dementia – esp. Alzheimer’s type
  • Obesity
  • Polycystic ovarian disease
  • Insulin resistance and most of the chronic diseases of decay and aging.

No food available = stop growing and start repairing.  We NEED a break from food.  Intermittent fasting is a simple, painless way to activate this critical anti-aging signaling.

Inhibiting mTOR turns on the “stop growing and start repairing” switch.  Nutrients that also do this include:

  • Resveratrol
  • Quercitin
  • Turmeric

To learn more: https://thefastingmethod.com/fasting-and-autophagy-mtor-autophagy-1/

AMPK is our master switch for metabolism.  It is our “Fat Switch” – when turned on we burn fat for fuel, when turned off we store fat. Critical AMPK activating nutrients include: resveratrol, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Berberine, Burdock Root, Rose Hips, Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFA’s are made from fiber by a healthy microbiome).  Exercise esp. high intensity interval training and fasting also activate this critical youth promoting pathway.  My favorite supplements to turn on our AMPK “Fat burning” switch are Glycoberine MX and ALA Max (time released high potency Alpha Lipoic Acid)

For the first time in the history of the world, we have more people over age 65 than children under the age of 5. What are we going to do with an ever-aging population that is decaying with an ever-growing list of chronic diseases headed towards a nursing home?  We are facing the bankruptcy of not only our health care systems but our entire economy.  This is in addition to the massive pain and suffering of those decaying through excessive inflammation, exhaustion, depression, and dementia. We MUST reverse the terrible decay & aging that plagues our aging population.

Mitochondria: The Key to Everything

Wellness = Energy, Energy, Energy!!!

Cell mitochondria anatomy. 3d illustration

Our energy comes from our mitochondria which are tiny energy factories packed into our cells – we have 2000 mitochondria packed into the tiny cells of each heart and brain cell.

How well our cell energy factories (mitochondria) generate ATP (the fuel that powers us) determines our biologic age.

We can’t change our chronological age (number of birthdays) unless we lie (not that
anyone we know would ever do that) 🙂

We can change our biologic age – the age we function. We all know people who are age 50 but look and feel age 80 as well as people age 80 who look and feel age 50. My Dad is a great example of the latter.

A key part of aging is losing many of our precious mitochondria. To make matters worse,
our remaining mitochondria suffer damage leading to an energy deficit. Remember,
 Wellness is energy, energy, energy. To sum it up:

Energy =

  • number of mitochondria in each cell
  • Health & efficiency of those mitochondria

We are as Young as Our Mitochondria!

What can we do to support our mitochondria?

  1. We can improve the Well ness & functional efficiency of the mitochondria we
    have.
  2. We can make new mitochondria (biogenesis) – at any age!

Improving the Efficiency of Our Mitochondria

If we are not making energy efficiently, we are instead making fat & destructive free
radicals. Here are some steps that are proven to work:

  1. 635 nm wavelength red coherent laser therapy. The Erchonia professional grade
    cold lasers (do not generate harmful heating) are the most effective available
    anywhere to do this – with the research to back it up. These healing lasers boost
    energy production by our mitochondria between 40 and 50%. An amazing “battery
    charge”. This laser photonic energy also triggers multiple anti-aging cellular
    pathways. The violet and red laser combination we use also trigger making new
    mitochondria.
  2. Eat nutrient dense whole foods and avoid processed foods.
  3. Avoid the nasty mitochondrial poison, glyphosate (Roundup), which is sprayed on
    our crops and concentrated in our vegetables, meats, and processed food. Eating
    organic is phenomenally important to minimize exposure. The average American
    has 1 pound of this toxin in their body – no wonder we are so fat, sick, tired,
    anxious, depressed, and inflamed.
  4. Eat less sugar and fruit – high levels are toxic to our mitochondria and metabolism.
  5. Eat more Veggies, quality protein, and healthy fats: Olive, Coconut, Avocado, MCT
    oil are good sources.
  6. Supplement smart – the Core 4:
    • A high-grade Multiple Vitamin/Mineral like Mega Multi Pro
    • A bioavailable source of high potency magnesium like Acti-mag
    • Vitamin K2-D3 at optimal dose based on blood lab testing
    • A high quality, clean, bioavailable Omega 3 like Omega Pure 1300 Pro which
      is 320% better absorbed than regular fish oil.

7. Advanced Supplementation:

  • A probiotic like MegaSpore Biotic to support our Microbiome – the 100
    TRILLION bacteria/microbes that live mostly in our gut. Did you know that
    our Microbiome talks to our Mitochondria? We MUST have a healthy,
    diverse, balanced Microbiome for our Mitochondria to work well.
  • Time-released Alpha Lipoic Acid. I use ALA-Max which we have found to be
    the most effective form.
  • A bioactive high-grade methylated resveratrol. I take our Resveratin Plus (Resveratrol/Pterostilbene Complex) to activate the Sirtuin pathways to turn off the aging cell signaling pathways.
  • Coenzyme Ql0 I CoQl0 I ubiquinone – we especially like the more active Ubiquinone form.
  • Pyrroloquinoline Quinone I PQQ I Methoxatin
  • L-carnitine
  • Creatine

8. Intermittent fasting: I use green tea, MCT oil, and Collagen protein in my breakfast drink on my workout days. It increases my strength up to 20%. This carb fasting approach triggers ketosis so I am burning fat for fuel which is much more efficient than burning sugar leading to my increased muscle strength & efficiency.

9. High intensity interval training – I combine fasting with my NOW-T exercise
sessions 2X/week with Austin in our clinic. It takes just 15 minutes of variable
resistance training 2X/week to powerfully activate the anti-aging pathways while
boosting mitochondrial wellness.

10. Exposure to cold. I use cold (cool in the summer here) showers and cold
immersions in our unheated swimming pool in the winter.

11. Great quality and quantity of deep, restful sleep is profoundly important for our
mitochondrial health and wellness.

12. Effective relaxation techniques – especially meditation

13. Get enough Sunlight while avoiding sunburns – we are “solar powered”.

Making New Mitochondria

This is called mitochondrial biogenesis and can be turned on at any age. Most of
what works to improve the efficiency of our Mitochondria also works to trigger
biogenesis. Here are the top triggers for making new mitochondria:

  • Intermittent fasting
  • High intensity interval training – I combine fasting with my NOW-T sessions
    2X/week with Austin in our clinic. Takes just 15 minutes of variable
    resistance training 2X/week to powerfully activate the anti-aging pathways
    while boosting mitochondrial wellness.
  • Supplement with bioactive methylated Resveratrol (pterostilbene)

18 Reasons Why I Won’t Get the COVID Vaccine

A delightful couple living in a senior living facility in Sun City have been vilified, shunned, and bullied because they choose not to get the experimental gene altering COVID vaccine.  Is this kind, right, or fair?

What happened to the freedoms our American servicemen and women have fought for and died to protect?  What has happened to science, truth, and truth telling?  Have we forgotten the horrific lessons from the tyranny in 1930’s Germany?

We are each free to choose – by Federal law it is illegal to mandate an Experimental Use Authorization drug/vaccine.  These are the reasons I choose not to risk my life and health with these experimental COVID vaccines:

1. The vaccines don’t stop transmission or infection

Aren’t these vaccines supposed to be what we’ve been waiting for to “go back to normal”?  Sadly, no.

Why do you think we’re getting all these conflicting messages about needing to practice social distancing and wear masks after we get a vaccine? The reason is because these vaccines were never designed to stop transmission or infection.

If you don’t believe me, I refer you again to the papers submitted to the FDA I linked to above which show that the primary endpoint (what the vaccines are meant to accomplish) is to lower your symptoms.

Sounds like just about every other drug on the market right? That’s it … lowering your symptoms is the big payoff we’ve been waiting for. Does that seem completely pointless to anyone but me?

  • It can’t stop us from spreading the virus.
  • It can’t stop the virus from infecting us once we have it.
  • To get the vaccine is to accept all the risk of these experimental products and the best it might do is lower symptoms?

There are plenty of other things I can do to lower my symptoms that don’t involve taking what appears to be a really risky product.

Now for the next logical question: If we’re worried about asymptomatic spreaders, would the vaccine not make it more likely that we are creating asymptomatic spread?

If it indeed reduces symptoms, anyone who gets it might not even know they are sick and thus they are more likely to spread the virus, right?

For what it’s worth, I’ve heard many people say the side effects of the vaccine (especially the second dose) are worse than catching COVID.

I can’t make sense of that either.

Take the risk. Get no protection. Suffer through the vaccine side effects. Keep wearing your mask and social distancing … and continue to be able to spread the virus.

It gets worse …

2. People are catching COVID after being fully vaccinated

Talk about a bummer. You get vaccinated and you still catch COVID.

In reality, this phenomenon is probably happening everywhere, but those are the ones making the news now.

Given the reasons above (and what’s below), maybe this doesn’t surprise you, but bummer if you thought the vaccine was a shield to keep you safe.

It’s not. That was never the point.

If 66% of healthcare workers in L.A. are going to delay or skip the vaccine … maybe they aren’t wowed by the rushed science either.

Maybe they are watching the shady way deaths and cases are being reported …

3. Overall death rate from COVID

According to the CDC’s own numbers, COVID has a 99.74% survival rate.

Why would I take a risk on a product, that doesn’t stop infection or transmission, to help me overcome a cold that has a .26% chance of killing me — which actually in my age range is has about a .1% chance of killing me (and .01% chance of killing my kids).

This means that my chance of dying from COVID is about the same as dying from the flu.  For kids it even less than dying from the flu.  Almost all the deaths are in senior citizens within 3-4 months of dying from diabetes, heart disease, dementia, and other chronic diseases associated with obesity.

With a bar (death rate) that low, we will be in lockdown every year … i.e., forever.

But wait, what about the 500,000-plus deaths, that’s alarming right? I’m glad you asked

4. Bloated COVID death numbers

Something smells really funny about this one. Never before in the history of death certificates has our own government changed how deaths are reported.

Why now, are we reporting everyone who dies with COVID in their body, as having died of COVID, rather than the co-morbidities that actually took their life?

Until COVID, all coronaviruses (common colds) were never listed as the primary cause of death when someone died of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, auto-immune conditions or any other major comorbidity.

The disease was listed as the cause of death, and a confounding factor like flu or pneumonia was listed on a separate line.

To bloat the number even more, the World Health Organization and the CDC changed their guidelines such that those who are suspected or probable (but were never confirmed) of having died of COVID, are also included in the death numbers.

If we are going to do that then should we not go back and change the numbers of all past cold and flu seasons so we can compare apples to apples when it comes to death rates?

According to the CDCs own numbers, (scroll down to the section “comorbidities and other conditions”), only 6% of the deaths being attributed to COVID are instances where COVID seems to be the only issue at hand.

In other words, reduce the death numbers you see on the news by 94% and you have what is likely the real numbers of deaths from just COVID.

Even if the former CDC director is correct and COVID-19 was a lab-enhanced virus (see Reason #6 below), a .26% death rate is still in line with the viral flu death rate that circles the planet every year.

Then there’s this Fauci guy. I’d really love to trust him, but besides the fact that he hasn’t treated one COVID patient, you should probably know …

5. Fauci and others at NIAID own patents on the Moderna vaccine

Thanks to the Bayh-Dole Act, government workers are allowed to file patents on any research they do using taxpayer funding.

Tony Fauci owns more than 1,000 patents (see this video for more details), including patents being used on the Moderna vaccine … for which he approved government funding.

In fact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — which oversees the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), of which Fauci is the director — claims joint ownership of Moderna’s vaccine.

Does anyone else see this as a major conflict of interest, or criminal even?

I say criminal because there’s also this pesky problem that makes me even more distrustful of Fauci, NIAD, and the NIH in general …

6. Fauci is on the hot seat for illegal gain-of-function research

What is “gain-of-function” research? It’s where scientists attempt to make viruses gain functions — i.e. make them more transmissible and deadlier.

Sounds at least a touch unethical, right? How could that possibly be helpful?

Our government agreed, and 2014, banned the practice.

So what did the Fauci-led NIAID do? They pivoted and outsourced the gain-of-function research (in coronaviruses no less) to China — to the tune of a $600K grant.

Mr. Fauci, you have some explaining to do … and I hope the cameras are recording when you have to defend your actions.

For now, let’s turn our attention back to the virus …

7. The virus continues to mutate

Not only does the virus (like all viruses) continue to mutate, but according to world-renowned vaccine developer Geert Vanden Bossche (whom you’ll meet below if you don’t know him) it’s mutating about every 10 hours.

How in the world are we going to keep creating vaccines to keep up with that level of mutation? We’re not.

Might that also explain why fully vaccinated people are continuing to catch COVID?

Why, given that natural immunity has never ultimately failed humanity, do we suddenly not trust it?

Why, if I ask questions like the above, or post links like what you find above, will my thoughts be deleted from all major social media platforms?

That brings me to the next troubling problem I have with these vaccines …

8. Vaccine makers are immune from liability

The only industry in the world that bears no liability for injuries or deaths resulting from their products are vaccine makers.

As first established in 1986 with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and reinforced by the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, vaccine makers cannot be sued — even if they are shown to be negligent.

The COVID vaccine makers are allowed to create a one-size-fits-all product, with no testing on sub-populations (i.e. people with specific health conditions), and yet they are unwilling to accept any responsibility for any adverse events or deaths their products cause.

If a company is not willing to stand behind its product as safe, especially one rushed to market, I am not willing to take a chance on that product.

No liability. No trust. Here’s why …

9. The checkered past of vaccine companies

The four major companies who are making COVID vaccines are/have either:

Moderna had been trying to “Modernize our RNA” (thus the company name) for years, but had never successfully brought any product to market. How nice for the company to get a major cash infusion from the government to keep trying.

In fact, all major vaccine makers (save Moderna) have paid out tens of billions of dollars in damages for other products they brought to market when they knew those products would cause injuries and death — see VioxxBextraCelebrexThalidomide and opioids as a few examples.

If drug companies willfully choose to put harmful products in the market — when they can be sued — why would we trust any product where they have no liability?

Three of the four COVID vaccine makers have been sued for products they brought to market even though they knew injuries and deaths would result.

Given the free pass from liability, and the checkered past of these companies, why would we assume that all their vaccines are safe and made completely above board?

Where else in life would we trust someone with that kind of reputation?

To me that makes as much sense as expecting a remorseless, abusive unfaithful lover to become a different person because a judge said deep down they are a good person.

No. I don’t trust them. No liability. No trust. Here’s another reason why I don’t trust them …

10. Ugly history of previous attempts to make coronavirus vaccines

There have been many attempts to make viral vaccines in the past that ended in utter failure — which is why we did not have a coronavirus vaccine in 2020.

In the 1960s, scientists attempted to make an RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) vaccine for infants. In that study, they skipped animal trials because the trials weren’t required then.

In the end, the vaccinated infants got much sicker than the unvaccinated infants when exposed to the virus in nature, with 80% of the vaccinated infants requiring hospitalization. Two of them died.

After 2000, scientists made many attempts to create coronavirus vaccines. For the past 20 years, all ended in failure because the animals in the clinical trials got very sick and many died, just like the children in the 1960s.

You can read a summary of this history/science here. Or if you want to read the individual studies you can check out these links:

  • In 2004, attempted vaccine produced hepatitis in ferrets.
  • In 2005, mice and civets became sick and more susceptible to coronaviruses after being vaccinated.
  • In 2012, the ferrets became sick and died. And in this study, mice and ferrets developed lung disease.
  • In 2016, this study also produced lung disease in mice.

The typical pattern in the studies referenced above is that the children and the animals produced beautiful antibody responses after being vaccinated. The manufacturers thought they hit the jackpot.

The problem came when the children and animals were exposed to the wild version of the virus.

When that happened, an unexplained phenomenon called antibody dependent enhancement, also known as vaccine enhanced disease, occurred where the immune system produced a “cytokine storm” (i.e. overwhelmingly attacked the body) and the children/animals died.

Here’s the lingering issue: The vaccine makers have no data to suggest their rushed vaccines have overcome that problem.

In other words, never before has any attempt to make a coronavirus vaccine been successful, nor has the gene-therapy technology in mRNA “vaccines” been safely brought to market.

We might assume that because the companies received billions of dollars in government funding, they must have figured out that problem.

Except they don’t know if they have …

11. The ‘data gaps’ submitted to FDA by vaccine makers

When vaccine makers submitted their papers to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Emergency Use Authorization (which is not the same as a full FDA approval), among the many “data gaps” they reported was that they have nothing in their trials to suggest they overcame that pesky problem of vaccine enhanced disease.

They simply don’t know if the vaccines they’ve made will also produce the same cytokine storm (and deaths) as previous attempts at such products.

As Dr. Joseph Mercola points out …

Previous attempts to develop an mRNA-based drug using lipid nanoparticles failed and had to be abandoned because when the dose was too low, the drug had no effect, and when dosed too high, the drug became too toxic. An obvious question is: What has changed that now makes this technology safe enough for mass use?”

If that’s not alarming enough, here are other gaps in the data — in other words, there is no data to suggest safety or efficacy regarding:

  • Anyone younger than age 18 or older than age 55.
  • Pregnant or lactating mothers.
  • Autoimmune conditions.
  • Immunocompromised individuals.
  • No data on transmission of COVID.
  • No data on preventing mortality from COVID.
  • No data on duration of protection from COVID.

In case you think I’m making this up, or want to see the actual documents sent to the FDA by Pfizer and Moderna for their Emergency Use Authorization, you can check out this, or this respectively. The data gaps can be found starting with page 46 and 48 respectively.

For now let’s turn our eyes to the raw data the vaccine makers used to submit for emergency use authorization …

12. No access to raw data from trials

Would you like to see the raw data that produced the “90% and 95% effective” claims touted in the news?

Me too. But the companies won’t let us see that data.

As pointed out in the BMJ (British Medical Journal), something about the Pfizer and Moderna efficacy claims smells really funny. There were “3,410 total cases of suspected, but unconfirmed COVID-19 in the overall study population, 1,594 occurred in the vaccine group vs. 1,816 in the placebo group.”

Wait … what? Did they fail to do science in their scientific study by not verifying a major variable?

Could they not test those “suspected but unconfirmed” cases to find out if they had COVID?  Why not test all 3,410 participants for the sake of accuracy?

Can we only guess they didn’t test because it would mess up their “90-95% effective” claims?

Would it not be prudent for the FDA to expect (demand) the vaccine makers test people who have “COVID-like symptoms,” and release their raw data so independent third parties could examine how the manufacturers justified the numbers?

It’s only every citizen of the world we’re trying to get to take these experimental products — why did the FDA not require that? Isn’t that the entire purpose of the FDA anyway?

Good question. Foxes guarding the hen house? No liability. No trust.

13. No long-term safety testing

With products that have been on the market only a few months, we have no long-term safety data.

In other words, we have no idea what this product will do in the body months or years from now — for any population.

Given all the risks above (risks that all pharmaceutical products have), would it not be prudent to wait to see if the worst-case scenarios have indeed been avoided?

Would it not make sense to want to fill those pesky “data gaps” before we try to give this to every man, woman and child on the planet?

That would make sense. But to have that data, they need to test it on people, which leads me to my next point …

14. No informed consent

What most who are taking the vaccine don’t know is that because these products are still in clinical trials, anyone who gets the shot is now part of the clinical trial — part of the experiment.

Those (like me) who do not take it, are part of the control group. Time will tell how this experiment works out.

But, you may be asking, if the vaccines are causing harm, wouldn’t we be seeing that all over the news? Surely the FDA would step in and pause the distribution? (Editor’s note: federal health officials recently suspended the Johnsons & Johnson vaccine over concerns related to blood clots).

If the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) — the government-run system for reporting deaths and injuries after vaccines — worked, maybe things would be different, but …

15. Under-reporting of adverse reactions and deaths

According to a Harvard study (commissioned by our own government), less than 1% of all adverse reactions to vaccines are actually submitted to VAERS.

While the problems with VAERS have not been fixed (as you can read about in this letter to the CDC), at the time of this writing, VAERS reports over 2,200 deaths from the current COVID vaccines, as well as close to 60,000 adverse reactions.

If those numbers represent only 1% of the total adverse reactions (or .8% to 2% of what this study published recently in the JAMA found), you can do the math — but that equates to somewhere around 110,000 to 220,000 deaths from the vaccines to date, and a ridiculous number of adverse reactions.

Bet you didn’t see that on the news.

That death number would currently still be lower than the 424,000 deaths from medical errors that happen every year (which you probably also don’t hear about), but we are not even six months into the rollout of these vaccines yet.

If you want a deeper dive into the problems with the VAERS reporting system, you can check out this or this.

But then there’s my next point, which could be argued makes these COVID vaccines seem pointless …

16. Censorship and the complete absence of scientific debate

I can’t help but get snarky here, so humor me.

How did you enjoy all those nationally and globally televised, robust debates put on by public health officials, and broadcast simultaneously on every major news station?

Wasn’t it great hearing from the best minds in medicine, virology, epidemiology, economics and vaccinology, from all over the world. as they vigorously and respectfully debated things like:

  • Lockdowns
  • Mask wearing
  • Social-distancing
  • Vaccine efficacy and safety trials
  • How to screen for susceptibility to vaccine injury
  • Therapeutics, (i.e. non-vaccine treatment options)

Wasn’t it great seeing public health officials (who never treated anyone with COVID) have their “science” questioned?

Wasn’t it great seeing the FDA panel publicly grill the vaccine makers in prime time as they stood in the hot-seat of tough questions about products of which they have no liability?

Oh, wait … you didn’t see those debates? No, you didn’t. Because they never happened.

What happened instead was heavy-handed censorship of all but one narrative.

Mark Zuckerberg can question vaccine safety, but I can’t? When did the First Amendment become a suggestion?

It’s the FIRST Amendment, Mark — the one our founders thought was most important.

With so much at stake, why are we fed only one narrative. Shouldn’t many perspectives be heard and professionally debated?

What has happened to science?

What has happened to the scientific method of always challenging our assumptions?

What happened to lively debate in this country, or at least in Western society?

Why did anyone who disagrees with WHO, or the CDC get censored so heavily?

Is the science of public health a religion now — or is science supposed to be about debate?

If someone says “the science is settled” that’s how I know I’m dealing with someone who is closed minded. By definition science (especially biological science) is never settled.

If it was, it would be dogma, not science.

I want to be a good citizen. I really do.

If lockdowns work, I want to do my part and stay home.

If masks work, I want to wear them.

If social distancing is effective, I want to comply.

But, if there is evidence they don’t (masks for example), I want to hear that evidence, too.

If highly credentialed scientists have different opinions, I want to know what they think. I want a chance to hear their arguments and make up my own mind.

I don’t think I’m the smartest person in the world, but I think I can think. Maybe I’m weird, but if someone is censored, then I really want to hear what they think. Don’t you?

To all my friends who don’t have a problem with censorship, will you have the same opinion when what you think is censored?

Is censorship not the technique of dictators, tyrants and greedy, power-hungry people?

Is it not a sign that those who are doing the censoring know it’s the only way they can win?

What if a man who spent his entire life developing vaccines was willing to put his entire reputation on the line and call on all global leaders to immediately stop the COVID vaccines because of problems with the science?

What if he pleaded for an open-scientific debate on a global stage?

Would you want to hear what he has to say? Would you want to see the debate he’s asking for?

17. World’s leading vaccinologist is sounding the alarm

Here is what may be the biggest reason this COVID vaccine doesn’t make sense to me.

When someone who is very pro-vaccine, who has spent his entire professional career overseeing the development of vaccines, is shouting from the mountaintops that we have a major problem, I think the man should be heard.

In case you missed it, and in case you care to watch it, here is Geert Vanden Bossche, explaining:

  • Why the COVID vaccine may be putting so much pressure on the virus that we are accelerating its ability to mutate and become more deadly.
  • Why the COVID vaccines may be creating vaccine-resistant viruses (similar to antibiotic resistant bacteria).
  • Why, because of previous problems with antibody dependent enhancement, we may be looking at a mass casualty event in the next few months/years.

If you want to see/read about a second, and longer, interview with Vanden Bossche, where he was asked some tough questions, you can check this out.

If half of what he says comes true, these vaccines could be the worst invention of all time.

If you don’t like his science, take it up with him.

I’m just the messenger.

But I can also speak to COVID personally …

18. I have a medical condition that makes it unsafe for me to get the COVID vaccine.

I,Timothy, actually have a condition that makes the risks  of this vaccine far outweigh the limited benefits of reducing symptoms of cough and fever.  Some may demand to know what condition I have that preclude me from getting this experimental vaccine.  My answer is simple:  My health privacy is protected by federal law (HIPPA).  Also, by federal law (Americans with Disability Act), it is illegal to discriminate against me because of my health condition.

In summary

The above are just my reasons for not wanting the vaccine. Maybe my reasons make sense to you, maybe they don’t.

I for one think there’s a lot more that we have in common than what separates us.

  • We all want to live in a world of freedom.
  • We all want to do our part to help others and to live well.
  • We all want the right to express our opinions without fearing we’ll be censored, bullied, or viciously attacked.
  • We all deserve to have access to all the facts so we can make informed decisions.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”― Edmund Burke

Agree or disagree with me, I’ll treat you no differently.

You’re a human just as worthy of love and respect as anyone else. For that I salute you, and I truly wish you all the best.

Creating a Happy Brain

Many suffer with anxiety, depression, fatigue, Brain Fog, post-concussion brain injuries, or neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis.  Others suffer with attention deficit problems, hyperactivity, or autism symptoms.

Is there hope for improvements?

In our experience, the answer is usually “yes” as long as we work to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering.

The science of neuroplasticity tells us that our neurons (brain cells) can change (plasticity) more than we imagine.  This means our brain can rewire even after a stroke or brain injury to take over the functions of the damaged areas in ways that can sometime seem miraculous. After years of abuse, neglect, and suffering, our brain has a remarkable ability to heal and change.

What does our brain need to rewire and heal?

E.S.E.

Energy – we need our mitochondria to work really well to power the rewiring miracle of neuroplasticity.  We have tools like healing lasers, frequency specific microcurrent, pulsed magnetic field therapy and a host of nutraceutical supplements to recharge our neurons and body.

Stimulation – we need activation of critical brain control centers – especially the parasympathetic controls centers located in our brain stem to dial back our stress response and turn on:

  1. Healing and Repair
  2. Calm and Peaceful
  3. Digestion and Detox
  4. Reduced inflammation
  5. Mitochondrial repair and regeneration

We use tools like unilateral spinal neurologic adjusting, Vagal stimulation therapies, and brain activation therapies.

Exercise – since neurons that fire together, wire together, we must use these new brain circuits we are creating or we lose them.  Vagal stimulation exercises, Neuromodulation therapies, and sensory stimulation therapies can have especially powerful benefits.

In short, we need to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering to help create a “Happy Brain”

A consult or Foundation Visit is a great way to get started.  Others who want learn even more about their brain start with a Brain Scan.
