Interesting Notes on Asberger’s Syndrome

We all know someone who is seemingly cold and distant, but seem to think everything is fine; I certainly have this in my family.

From Medicine.net, some of the symptoms that may be present are:

  • Lack of social awareness;
  • Lack of interest in socializing/making friends;
  • Difficulty making and sustaining friendships;
  • Inability to infer the thoughts, feelings, or emotions of others;
  • Either gazing too intently or avoiding eye contact;

About Anorexia Nervosa…

I just wanted to pass on some historical information that may or may not be helpful.

Until 1932, if a girl started ‘pining’ the physician would prescribe Tincture of Cannabis, available at the pharmacy. A few drops in water and she would start eating.

To make a tincture, one measures a dry herb by volume, and covers it with the same volume of grain alcohol (like alcool, or vodka) in a covered jar. It is kept in a dark place and shaken daily. After 10 days it is filtered through an unbleached coffee filter into a sterile bottle. The typical dosage is then 3 drops in a glass of water, but may go up one drop at a time to 10 until the munchies occur.

Also, cannabis was one of the healing herbs in the Bible, so it is man’s law, not God’s, that prohibits its use.

Chamomile and Oat Moisturizing Hand Scrub

Chamomile and Oat Moisturizing Hand Scrub

1/2 c. Cornstarch

1/2 c. Glycerin

1/4 c. Chamomile tea, very strong infusion

2 T. Sweet Almond, Calendula or Arnica Oil

2 T. Oatmeal, very finely ground

2 T. Rice, very finely ground

Use a spice grinder for the oats and rice. Heat the glycerin and slowly add the cornstarch, stirring constantly to make a paste. Take off the heat and slowly stir in the chamomile infusion, then the oil, and finally the ground oats and finely ground rice. Store in a wide-mouthed jar or tin and use in the same way as you would a hand soap. It should keep for up to 2 months.

A Quick Update

So far, since using my colloidal silver solution, my own eyes are feeling so much better (I have a torn vitreous), and I am spraying the solution on my itchy places and on a benign cancer I have (don’t want to go through the cutting and scraping again when it just grows back). The itch has stopped, and the growth went from a charcoal to taupe in three days. I am impressed. Now I’m going to attack some skin tags. I have also started sipping a little…it tastes good, like fresh rain. I love it.

I do a lot of volunteering with the marginalized community as well as give treatments using complementary therapies for our local hospice, so I come into contact with a lot of people with various illnesses. I can’t give my colloidal silver out to hospice patients, of course, but to the folks on the street or in rooming houses who cannot afford much of anything, I am giving this out as they need it. I just gave one friend what would have cost $180 in the health food store, because it cost me less than $3.00! He is battling cancer as well as diabetes, but his wife is in a wheelchair and they cannot get the help they need from community nursing. He was grateful to try anything that might help him keep his strength up so he can care for her.

Another gentleman, a widower I know, has two cancers, one being on his skin. He’s been using it on facial lesions that won’t heal, and he says it is helping. All I know is two weeks ago I was worried, he was fading so fast and turning grey, now he seems much better again and has some colour back. If he wants to try drinking it, he’ll get his own big bottle, too.

But I am getting used to this sort of thing. Maybe it’s just having someone to care about you, but it seems whenever I get end-stage folks and do treatments, my assignment often runs out before they do…then months later I am called back in. And I know the power of herbs when people not getting treatments will actually used them. There are amazing cures the physicians know nothing about – but there is no money in that, is there!

(If you have premenopausal floods, is there a fast stop to that! No hysterectomy, no chemical castration, as I was offered. Just an herbal stop to it all. Just get in touch with me of the famous herbalist in the US, Susan Weed.)

In fact I once taught someone how to nurse a friend after the surgeon gave up and just closed her back up. I loaned them some heavy duty texts and gave them a regimen of raw fruits and juices to try with her friend. They followed it religiously, and a month later the surgeon and oncologist were stumped as they couldn’t find any cancer. She was still alive and thriving a year later. Meanwhile another woman i heard about at the same time and much younger, was told to only eat Ensure and tapioca by her oncologist. I shared how well the ‘dying’ woman was doing, but the mutual acquaintance there would not go against the doctor and feed her raw fruits and juices with the much needed enzymes, and she succumbed within a few weeks (as the other woman was supposed to have done) leaving a young child and husband behind.

I guess the Lord either wants me to be encouraged by His wondrous love, or give many of the people I’ve personally come across to have just a little more time here, because I have certainly been blessed to have such lovely folks in my life who seem to do so well after just a little tender loving care.

Soon…

 

 

 

My Two Best Laundry Tricks

Liquid Laundry Detergent (1/2 Gallon)

1/4 c. Borax
1/4 c. Washing Soda
1/4 c.Blue Dawn Dish Detergent
¼ t. Essential Oil, if desired for smelly laundry
Hot tap water

In a plastic 2-liter bottle put the sodas and fill halfway up with water. Shake well, then add the Dawn and essential oil. Gently top up with hot water and shake again before using. Use 2 T. For a medium load, and use undiluted for pre-treating dirty spots. Clearly mark the bottle with a permanent marker.

Anti-Static Dryer Balls

For each, take about 18 of aluminum foil and wad up into a ball. Bank the sides well until smooth; you dont want sharp little edges pulling on fine fabrics. Toss into the dryer with your clothes, but if you have concerns about a fine article, put the ball inside a sock.

This works as well as a tennis ball, without the hot rubber smell and chemicals that leach out into the steam. And if you are sensitive to fabric softeners, you wont really need any with this, as it will leave your towels as absorbent as if left on the line to dry, but fluffy as when dried in a dryer. This approach will extend the life of your fabrics as the chemicals and waxes in commercial fabric softeners actually degrade the fibers.

If you want, you can drive a nail or awl into the ball to make a deep hole into which you can drip a little essential oil.

Make Your Own Colloidal Silver

I was in the doctor’s office some time ago, and overheard a very good-looking but obviously ill young man telling a friend his disability worker was cutting off his funding for the colloidal silver that had been keeping him going. I felt heartbroken by this, because Big Pharma has no interest in healing people, just making money from their pain by monitoring and controlling symptoms. And the AMA and CMA have signed off on this approach as well.

What really angers me is that the research done by natural health practitioners is largely ignored until money can be made from their discoveries. Weed has been known to help reverse cancer since the 70’s but how do you make money from a weed? So now Big Pharma wants to criminalize the use of herbal cannabis so they can sell more synthetic crap for a huge buck. And that won’t heal.

A few years have gone by since I overheard the young man. I now am retired and work with four missions, and a few people I care about are on the decline from cancer and other illnesses. And I myself am slowing down, so I thought it would not hurt to have some colloidal silver in the house. What a shock to see how bloody expensive this stuff is, so I have decided to make my own and give it to anyone I know who wants it to see if it will help. Because the stuff is so CHEAP to make…

So what I am doing for external use only is, wrapping two wires around the terminals of a 9-volt battery so they don’t touch. Alligator clips and electrical wires of red and black are good, if you are good with playing with electricals, but not absolutely necessary.

In a sterile container put 1 cup of steam-distilled water and a scant half teaspoon of sea salt or pink Himalayan salt – DO NOT USE IODIZED TABLE SALT (that stuff with its nasty take on iodine is about as healthy as the wheat products you buy that are heavily laced with Monsanto’s Roundup here in North America). This will give you the saline solution you need for some arcane chemical reason.

Ensuring the two 99.999 colloidal quality silver wires do not touch (or it will short out the battery), lower the wires into the saline. Crossing the mouth of the jar with a skewer to stabilize the battery might be helpful.

Immediately you will see tiny bubbles and a white smoke arise. This is good. Leave it for an hour, or even overnight if you want a higher amount in solution, but do your research on how to use it. You can learn more From Tony…check out some great videos on remedying ways to reverse or cure what ails you at youtube.com/user/HerbsPlusBeadWorks . Tony is a bit of an acquired taste, but for my money, he is the best herbalist in Canada (my favourite American herbalist is Susan Weed). He has proven far more helpful to me than my own physician.

I have tried his remedies when I can make them and gosh-darn it all, if they don’t work. I weaned off some medications prescribed for fibromyalgia by using some of his honey pastes until I got the correct regimen for Vitamin D3 therapy underway (yes, that works very well for the depression and helps with fibro fog). But the biggie for me was his tooth-building mouthwash. I would encourage anyone to get off the commercial toothpastes laden with the SLS that rip your gum tissues apart, and use use his solution. Not that I’ve used commercial toothpaste in years, but my gums, which were stripped years ago, have grown back, and my teeth have tightened up considerably since I began using it, regardless of the bone loss with which I was diagnosed.

Anyway, I hope this musing helps someone. I only wish it could help that young man.
