Paliperidone Invega Epidemic

Posted in Medical with tags , , , , , , on August 23, 2017 by Drogo

Medical science does not recognize spiritual experiences or creativity; and the drugs that doctors give for schizophrenia do more harm than cannabis does, because Paliperidone hinders joy and sedates, while pot encourages peace and love at chemical and sociological levels. While sedation may be critical for dangerously insane people, for those who are not prone to violence Paliperidone seems to just make them zombies worse than lithium, where as pot is generally much weaker, and provides pain-relief, joy, and many other good effects. Also the state mandate in Canada and the USA for Paliperidone needle injections is an epidemic abuse by corporate cronies. Thousands and thousands of people are forced by law to get injected with a sedation zombie drug, sometimes aggressively forced by police, and stabbed by a needle against their will. Then they are told that a weaker more natural drug, cannabis, is somehow worse for them.

Cannabis naturally works with our brain chemistry better than manufactured drugs, because of years of evolution. It is no wonder that companies want to keep pot illegal, and say that it does nothing good, so they can sell their isolated fabricated stronger shit. Big Pharma is out of control.

Corporate Chemical POISONS

Posted in Artificial Chemical Products, Commercial Corporations, Legal / Laws, Medical, Science & Math, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 23, 2017 by Drogo

First rule regarding Corporate POISONS: #1 DO NOT TRUST THE COMPANY;

Second rule regarding Corporate POISONS (and big money influence): #2: Do not trust the ‘test results’.

My grandfather was poisoned by arsenic lead that the company said was safe for farmers to breathe in the fields. It made his lungs bleed because it actually did poison him, despite their claims. Any chemical manufactured and sold commercially should not be trusted to be ‘safe’, even if ‘scientists tested it’. The only chemicals we can truly ever trust, are natural organic chemicals that humans have worked with for hundreds or better yet thousands of years. Poisons that have negative affects on some carbon-based life-form species who have DNA, probably have some adverse affects on related carbon-based life-form species who have DNA; because Ecology and Biology tend to work like that.

Home Treatment for Head Congestion

Cold & Flu Viruses may not have cures, but there are many treatments we can do while confined to our homes during the period of illness (days to weeks). Colds and Flus usually cannot be treated with Anti-biotics, because colds and flus are usually viruses not bacterias. If symptoms worsen then a doctor should be contacted. Strep-throat, bronchitis, Scarlet-fever, and other worse illnesses should be treated by doctors.

Skullcap Herb

Scutellaria lateriflora, blue skullcap, mad dog, blue dog – a hardy perennial herb of the mint family (Lamiaceae) native to North America

After taking skullcap for 3 weeks, I have much praise for its magic mental powers of tranquility. I bought a small bottle of ‘Oregon’s Wild Harvest’ Skullcap organic pills. Rather than swallow the pills whole and letting the thin capsule dissolve in my stomach, I open them and pour the dried powder of ‘100% skullcap tops’ onto my tongue and then swallow. It takes like tea flavored flour.

The psychoactive chemicals in skullcap cause a mild euphoric high, much like tea or coffee without the negative withdrawal effects of caffeine; and instead of the heart-racing diuretic stimulation, Skullcap has an opposite calming effect. Skullcap may be more like eating a similar small portion of cannabis, for the reasons described. I believe Skullcap is not strong enough to cause accidents, as when I was driving my traffic and weather anxiety seemed to over-ride any calming effects while driving. When I am sitting or walking, I do feel a bit buzzed, but the effect may have something to do with my desire to chill out and relax as well.

The Skullcap bottle cost about $10, and after taking an average 3 pills daily and giving some away I still have half a bottle left. It seems to give me a bit of help in training my mind to be more meditative, and create a peaceful state of being. This is not a paid advertisement for this product, but I can honestly say that I desire to take the pill when I go hours without it. If it is addictive, I feel it is in the same way that Cannabis is, in that I can go without it safely, but it feels nice when I use it.

Skullcap bio-active compounds:  flavonoids, baicalein, wogonin, wogonoside (anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-cardiac stress)

Clues to Happiness

Posted in Medical, Philosophy, Spiritual with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2013 by Drogo

Here are some Psychological and Chemical Clues to Happiness

Think of something that makes you happy, so much that it feels real as a meditation.

Missing a friend is an uncomfortable feeling, like a missing connection in a machine; it messes with our functioning. So feel those good feelings that they make you feel, even if it makes you cry. Do not be afraid of your own feelings.

Now let’s think about the Emotional ‘Heart’ aspects of our brain / body:

Adrenalin (Epinephrine) – neuro-transmitter hormone that stimulates body functions like heart-rate, blood-pressure, and metabolism. Adrenalin is released by stress and causes the emotion fear. It can also aid in memory retention. ‘Adrenalin junkies’ may be addicted to the endorphins simultaneously released.

Endorphins – neuro-transmitter chemical produced by the brain during exercise, pain, eating spices, sex, and the ‘feeling’ of ‘love’. The exhilaration produced can be beneficial for happiness, pain-relief, and further enhance love as euphoria.

Dopamine – neuro-transmitter chemical that sends ‘reward’ signals between nerve cells during pleasurable and painful activities or thoughts. Dopamine has prime roles in reward-motivated behavior, excitement, hormone production, and nervous-system dexterity / agility (‘motor-skills’). Dopamine also affects blood vessels, kidneys, pancreas, digestive-system, and the immune-system.

Dopamine-activating stimulants such as cocaine, amphetamine, and meth-amphetamine amplify the effects of dopamine. Conversely, many anti-psychotic drugs act by suppressing the effects of dopamine. Drugs that act against dopamine are anti-nausea agents.

Oxytocin – neuromodulator hormone in brain and blood. Causes complex emotions of trust, attachment, euphoria, and morality. Produced by sexual/reproductive activities and compassionate exchanges like hugging.

Serotonin –  neuro-transmitter chemical in the digestive-system (bowels), nervous-system (CNS), and circulatory-system (blood platelets) derived from tryptophan and melatonin. Serotonin affects healing, happiness, and contentment. Serotonin also affects alpha / beta behaviors, and ‘flight-or-fight’ responses in complex ways.

Psychedelic drugs mimic Serotonin as ‘agonists’. Anti-Depressant drugs alter Serotonin levels.  Thus there are spiritual, medical, and psychological therapeutic aspects to Serotonin.

Melatonin – chemical endocrine hormone preservative that protects DNA, and is an anti-oxidant sleep-aid. Melatonin production is derived from tryptophan, produced by the pineal gland in the center of the brain, and released by visual darkness. Melatonin is also found in herbs like fever-few and saint-Johns-wort; vegetables like rice and corn; and fruits like cherries and grapes .

Melatonin controls our internal ‘circadian’ clock rhythms, including being awake and asleep. There-fore Melatonin is beneficial for over-all good health and long-life. It is used to treat diseases, depression, and insomnia. Regular restful periods of sleep are important to cleanse the brain of toxins that accumulate during conscious activity, and thus prevents related illness like Alzheimers.

Marijuana As Magic

Posted in Medical, Organic Agriculture & Horticulture with tags , , , , , , , , on July 17, 2013 by Drogo

Marijuana / Cannabis”Pot”: as a Legal Magical Medicine

Burning and inhaling, or cooking and eating Cannabis (aka Pot), is a psychoactive experience. Psychotropic drugs are still mysterious to science, as much as spiritual experiences or imagination. Spirituality or Creativity is a way of life for many of us. Another article can explain religious, or ritual magic use of cannabis, and I will try to write it and link an essay focused on that later.

Pot allows anger to rebound inside human brains, for long enough to dissipate substantially, or often simply transmute the negative to positive feelings, without even needing to vent hostility or commit aggressive acts. Pot is one of the best tools for anger management, because humans have evolved with cannabinoid receptors in our brains which allow for symbiotic harmony between us. This natural evolution with humans, is what sets it apart from other psychedelic medicines (although other natural drugs have different ways they evolved to affect our minds). Pot is enlightened magic, and here is a fictional account to explain how some of us think in creative metaphors about reality to explain what works for us to be happier people:

I have been chewing and smoking faery-mint since I was a teen-ager. I am now 40 years old writing this memoir, and I can honestly say the benefits for me are far greater than the side-effects. Peace-of-mind, connection to Nature, and broader creativity are the main short-term and (with experience) long term powers of faery-mint.

Faery-mint grew in harmony with faeries for thousands of years. So the plant affects our brains with mutual synergistic complementary symbiotic feelings. The negative effects include smoke resin, burn damage, loss of balance, loss of tension, loss of will-power; which for those suffering from excessive anger, burning desire, stress, paralyzing fear, and over-whelming self-motivated selfish will-power it is worth it.

There is a loss of short-term memory similar to the natural tendency to forget why we came into a room, or what we were talking about; however the increased joy and comfort to recall memories long-term, and short-term memory savvy when not intoxicated again win out. Experience can train its’ use, and with moderation it aids those of us with problems like anger management, insomnia from ptsd, and depression.

Some call it faery-weed, to demean its medicinal powers. Many people have addictive impulses, and they can get addicted to the higher powers of the plant; as much as with any powerful medicine. However I have never been addicted to any-substance to the point of committing crimes, hurting others, or wasting efforts to obtain it. I never purchased faery-mint at a goblin market during those 25 years until recently, as it is legal now in some faery realms. I never had to grow or purchase it, because it was popular enough that people have always just had it and shared it. Also I was not able to grow it because humans would come and rip it up, kill it, steal it, arrest me, and fine my family.”

– Harpers Faery Outlaws  (fantasy novel) 

Final note on pot – it is non-lethal natural medicine.
