They Don’t Teach These in Medical School

The Journal of Patient Safety puts the number of people killed in American hospitals by preventable medical errors at 440,000 yearly. The complete number is much higher, but even using the 440K figure, that’s the equivalent of 60 Jumbo Jet crashes every month killing all on board. How long would we let an industry operate that crashed two Jumbo Jets full of people every day? Would you willingly get on a Jumbo Jet with those odds? Think you might look for an alternative?

American medicine is amazing when it comes to trauma and emergency medicine. But for chronic complaints and illnesses, general overall healthcare, our conventional approach is pretty narrow. The majority of Americans now turn to alternative medicine before…

<p>Sumer Is Icumen In.</p>The old gods are new again

By 2050, the largest and fastest growing religion in America will be paganism. It will take many forms, including Wicca and Druidism, but will all be marked by respect for nature and a connection to the ancient religions of Europe. These modern pagans will have many holidays in common, all drawn from the pagan past, including the harvest holiday of Samhain at the end of October and the planting festival of Beltane in May.

The popularity of paganism will be hard to explain. Some will argue that it is deliberately a rejection of Christianity, which will have developed a reputation for being repressive. Some will argue that years of retraining ourselves to be stewards of the earth will have prepared…

Top Ten Rules for Healthy Living

Being healthy is our natural state. When we’re not healthy, it means something has gotten out of balance. In order to keep the body in harmony with that natural state we must align with — wait for it — Nature. That’s not always easy to do considering how modern society has assaulted and insulted the planet. But with only a modicum of effort, we can modulate the damage by adjusting behavior. This Top Ten List is loaded with seemingly simplistic suggestions, in no particular order. When you try them, you’ll see the discipline required.

Drink Water. The planet and our bodies are both about 75 percent H2O so it makes sense to keep it that way. Here’s the rub: most…

<p>The oldest restaurants will soon be the newest restaurants!</p>Yesterday’s foods—today!

The future of restaurants is to be found in the past: A popular trend in the next decade will be new restaurants that recreate the complete menu of long out-of-business restaurants of the past. The restaurants will go so far as to recreate the decor and the costumes worn by waiters and waitresses. Some of these will be very old menus, dating back to the turn of the century or further, but some will recreate foods enjoyed in the 80s or 90s.

This will involve a process called "forensic cooking," in which chefs will track down old recipe books and former employees to determine precisely how foods were made, and will sometimes even include bringing in former patrons for taste…

<p>Our earth will soon be home to unseen invaders.</p>The invaders

There are more than 50,000 aliens living among us now, passing themselves off as ordinary people and living ordinary lives. But they are deep cover agents for a slow, invisible invasion. These are not aliens from another world, but instead from an alternate dimension. This world is very like our own, but destroyed by a thousand years of war and quickly dying.

This invasion has been planned for a fifty years, since technology was developed that opens a hole to our dimension. They have studied us and learned our languages and ways. They have forged documents so that they can seem like they have always been here, and, over the next decade, all of them will leave their world and…

Fear is Not an Option

Life is simpler than you thought. There are but two emotions that energize our existence, that drive our behavior. At any given moment we are experiencing the emotion of Love or of fear. Once we examine the choice, we realize fear is not an option.

Love expands, includes, welcomes. Fear is Love’s opposite. Fear blocks, constricts, immobilizes. When we are afraid, expansion is impossible. Fear temporarily blocks the flow of Love. Love will continue. That is why fear is futile.

When a system blocks energy, whatever that system is, it will fail and destroy itself. A car engine that runs out of the oil that keeps the resistance low will blow up. The electricity flowing through the wall of the…

Don’t Be a Toaster: Redux

In Heartland Healing for June 2, 2015, we wrote about the swamp of seemingly dangerous energy we’ve created with our Age of Technology. Massive power lines drape the continent, indeed, the world. Long-range Extremely Low Frequency radio waves, dozens of miles long, batter the earth’s crust, core and oceans just for the sake of communicating with our submerged war machines. Our homes course with dirty electricity radiating from the walls, now enhanced by mandated Compact Fluorescent Lights. We microwave our food. (How good a practice could that be since we nicknamed it “nuke,” and “zap”?) We sit with energy-radiating laptops and iPads nestled near our gonads. We handle cell phones that generate powerful signals, pressing them against our brainpan, some…
