Great Greek Gratitude by Valerie Cheers Brown

A BRITISH MUSEUM curator has built a working replica of a 2,000-year-old Greek machine that has been called the world’s first computer.  For more information see source below!

Do you know just how many great things were derived from Ancient Greece?

Present day society dependably appears to put itself over the antiquated social orders that preceded it, however without their innovations, we wouldn’t be what we are today, and we unquestionably would not have what we have today. The old Greek civilisation thrived for around a thousand years, not as a bound together nation yet rather as a free relationship of city states, both on the territory of Greece and somewhere else around the Mediterranean. The thinker Plato depicted the states as being similar to a progression of frogs lounging around a lake. In spite of the fact that the Greeks drew on the thoughts of different prior civilisations, they were the general population who, more than whatever other, passed on to us the establishments of our majority rule government, our ideas of morals and equity, our science, our arithmetic and our music. In any case, maybe their most astonishing innovation is the first known PC. This was a little box loaded down with machine gear-pieces and turning so as to move parts all skilfully made and a handle it would show the developments of planets to a surprising level of precision – indeed it was a planetarium.

Did you know that the English language was derived from the Ancient Greek?

Do you know how many words you have used today derived from Ancient Greek?

Obviously, the Greek dialect has had a big impact on the English dialect. How about we examine.

According to Martha Peraki and Catherine Vougiouklaki “How has Greek influenced the English language 18 May 2015 article:

“Greek is one of the most seasoned Indo-European dialects and is typically separated into Ancient Greek (frequently considered as a dead dialect) and Modern Greek.”

“Current Greek is gotten from Koine, a typical vernacular of Ancient Greek that was comprehended all through the Greek-talking world around then. In the nineteenth century, Modern Greek turned into the official dialect of the Kingdom of Greece.”

“As indicated by  Peter T. Daniels, the Ancient Greeks were the first to utilize a ‘true’ alphabet, that is, one speaking both vowels and consonants. In fact, the word ‘letters in order’ is formed of the first two letters of the Greek alphabet, ‘alpha’ and ‘beta’.”

What English Owes to the Greek Language

“The Oxford Companion to the English Language says that classical influence of Greek on English has been indirectly been through French and Latin and a lot lexical and conceptual.

According to one estimate, more than 150,000 words of English are derived from Greek words. These include technical and scientific terms but also more common words like those above.

Words that starts with ‘ph’ are usually of Greek origin, for example: philosophy, physical, photo, phrase, philanthropy.

Many English words are formed of parts of words (morphemes) that originate from the Greek language, including the following examples:

  • phobia (fear of), as in arachnophobia – the fear of spiders
  • micro (small), as in microscopic – so small it’s hard to see
  • demos (people) as in democracy – government by the people

great example of the influence of the Greek language are the two speeches written in English but actually consisting of only Greek words (with the exception of articles and prepositions) by the former Prime Minister Prof. Xenophon Zolotas, who was also an economist.”

Did you know that there are many things which we use or see right now today which was because of the Ancient Greek inventing?

Did you know that the coin was because of the Ancient Greek?

According to HF International, “Coin Money: long before the rule of the Hellens, we developed a trade system that relied on atoken, not goods. Commodity money was born, but the Hellens were the first to develop coins of different sizes and materials and put a value on various trading goods.”

Here is a rundown of them. What number of would you say you were mindful of?

Would you believe the spiral staircase was their idea? How about vending machines, the thermometer, surgical tools,

the umbrella, how about urban planning, or even surveying tools and the list goes on and on!

Yes, we as Americans owe a lot to the Greeks for many great inventions which many of us take for granted in our world today as our beginnings!

Take a look at this video and educate your mind with Greek inventions and why this great country is not to be forgotten ever and should be celebrated!

Thank you beautiful Greece, and I hope to travel your incredible land one day soon and meet my new friends I have met along my journey there! My main dream is to drink coffee while sitting at the sea side with you!


Soul Train The Vision Stays Alive by Valerie J Brown

No matter what anybody says or does..nobody can ever replace what this great man started and he began something which our world needs to greatly recognize, and that is that there is only one race, and that is the human race.
Not only did be break barriers, but he exposed many blessed individuals who may or may not even knew that they had talent, but he saw something and wanted the world to see both then and now. He was truly a man with a vision who saw great things coming from his vision.
We love this incredible man so much and he is the Black American Idol if you ask me, but what really struck my heart with Mr. Cornelius is how he opened doors for many avenues that still need addressing right now today.
We as people of all colors need to stop blaming others and be grateful for who we are right now, today and take what God has given to us, use to our best abilities and be happy for yourself and mainly for others. This great man and many other great legends have set and paved the way for us and all we have to do is to run away with it and make history for ourselves and share with our children.
Don Cornelius will never be forgotten and we love him and are so proud to be here on Facebook expressing just what and how he instilled into each and every age, race, gender’s heart! If you ask anybody about Soul Train, they will say that they watched the show mostly everybody! What he did we really need to take what he gave to us and keep exactly what he did and that is the message he instilled into us and that is to stop making it seem that something is wrong with you if you are different. You are beautiful when you are ‘not normal’ and those beautiful differences are what made that show so extra special.
Mr. Cornelius showed us that God gave us all talents and what they are, we may not even know, but others can see things which we may not see and we are so talented in our own special ways, all of us and he allowed just that on that show for the world to see for sure for then and for now! Can you imagine what that great man did for each and every entertainer, dancer, singer, artist, musician, etc. that was given an opportunity to be on that show! You are legends for certain and it is because of his great vision! We need more people with visions for all and I say thank you!
For a person to have visions like that where he saw what these beautiful talents were each special and he allowed them to be on that show! Wow…u had to be special and very proud right now today too! We owe this great man a great deal rather than just rest in peace. We owe him to keep his dream alive for many more generations to come about what peace and love and soul means for all mankind!
This is what made Soul Train so spectacular and what he did is still able to be seen right now today! We really did not pay attention to how that great man-made a difference for many who are taking what he gave to them and running away with right now! One person that comes to mind immediately is Ms. Jennifer Lopez, and my girl Rosie Perez, two different cultures which were treated so unfairly for so long, especially women and they are incredible and strong-willed woman who with his help have broken barriers when nobody thought they would be broken. Wow, what a great vision that man saw and he knew what would help! I love you Don Cornelius and always will live up to what you stood for.
So…I say let’s keep Don Cornelius legacy alive and the many singers, musicians, artists, dancers, poets, etc, alive and let’s share and keep alive what Mr. Cornelius put great emphasis on and that was “Peace, Love and Soul” amongst us all.
Rest in peace Mr. Don Cornelius and thank you and you will never be forgotten and we will make sure of that!

Love, peace and soul.~ Don Cornelius ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Imagination & Spirituality Through Colors by Valerie Cheers Brown

The color purple is the color of the imagination and spirituality

Color icon violet v2.svg

I find colors totally amazing and found a very interesting article about colors and I chose purple and will share with you.

Judy Scott-Kemmis of Sydney Australia, author of “The Colour of Sex” is the author also of Empower Yourself With Color Psychology where I will share some fun stuff about the colors purple.

Welcome to the fascinating world of color psychology and an inspirational journey of self discovery through an understanding of color meanings.

Knowledge of how color affects your conscious and subconscious mind can change your life. It can inspire you to discover more about yourself and to embrace who you really are.

“I comprehend that there is no single wavelength that shows purple (in light of the fact that it must be seen when blue and red are joined or would it be possible to be in the middle of the two?), like there is for different hues. Be that as it may, such a variety of things in nature that are called “blue” look purple. Entire areas of bloom books are called “blue”. Have you ever seen a blue blossom? Possibly we’ve quite recently jumped on anything that is a bluer purple and called it blue on the grounds that there is so little of it in nature (is there any genuine blue in nature, other than the sky)?”

Why does the color purple or violet identify with the creative energy and otherworldly existence?

According to psychologist, “It invigorates the creative ability and motivates high goals. It is a reflective shading, permitting us to contact our more profound contemplations.

The contrast in the middle of violet and purple is that violet shows up in the obvious light range, or rainbow, though purple is essentially a blend of red and blue. Violet has the most astounding vibration in the obvious range.

While the violet is not exactly as extraordinary as purple, its embodiment is comparable. For the most part the names are tradable and the significance of the hues is comparable. Both contain the vitality and quality of red with the deep sense of being and honesty of blue. This is the union of body and soul making a harmony between our physical and our profound energies.

According to psychology, “Purple or violet helps the individuals who look for the significance of life and otherworldly satisfaction – it extends our mindfulness, uniting us to a higher awareness. Thus it is connected with change of the spirit and the thinkers of the world are regularly pulled in to it.

In the significance of hues, purple and violet speak to the future, the creative energy and dreams, while profoundly quieting the feelings. They move and improve psychic capacity and otherworldly edification, while, in the meantime, keeping us grounded.

The shading violet identifies with the dreamland, and a need to escape from the items of common sense of life. It is the daydreams getting away from reality.

From a shading brain science point of view, purple and violet advance congruity of the psyche and the feelings, adding to mental parity and solidness, true serenity, a connection between the otherworldly and the physical universes, in the middle of thought and action. Violet and purple bolster the act of reflection.”

The color or shading violet moves unqualified and magnanimous adoration, without self-image, empowering affectability and sympathy. Violet can be delicate to all the diverse types of contamination on the planet today, whether it be air contamination, commotion contamination, visual contamination or the contamination in our natural pecking order. This affectability makes violet powerless to sickness and sensitivities, helpless against its ordinary environment.

Violet energizes innovative interests and looks for motivation and inventiveness through its imaginative tries. It gets a kick out of the chance to be special, individual and free, not one of the group. Specialists, performers, authors, writers and psychics are all roused by violet and its enchantment and puzzle.

Violet is the shade of the compassionate, utilizing its better judgment to do useful for others. Joining knowledge and force with affectability and modesty, violet can accomplish a considerable measure for those less blessed.

The shading purple is particularly connected with sovereignty and the respectability, making an impression of extravagance, riches and excess.

Purple has power. It has an extravagance and quality to it that requests regard. Purple is driven and confident, the pioneer.

A lot of the shading purple can advance or exasperate despondency in some. It is one shading that ought to be utilized amazingly deliberately and as a part of little sums by the individuals who are defenseless against these discouraged states.

I bet you didn’t even realize there were so many different purples did you?

The Music Band-Aid by Valerie Cheers Brown

“What if we had a BAND which could AID with getting rid of pain with a finger push which would disperse music throughout our bodies and agitates nerve pain so much that it would want to dance throughout our own bodies and dosey-doe right out to not another partner called RELIEF? ”The Thimble Bioelectronics TENS patch is a wearable pain relief gadget that manages and tracks pain.:

I am finding music to be effective for helping with pain, the rest is up to us on how we manage our own pain.

If there could be something like a bioelectric bandaid that one could wear where we push it when we need to sleep and it would relieve the nerves of any pain and we would not hear it, but the pain would hear it this vibrating music. This could be used a band-aid which would be worn when going to sleep since this is when the pain aggravates and starts to worsen.

I am using myself as a study and as I listen, I can feel the music beats the pain and makes it disappear!

I pray that one day something like this is invented which would help with managing pain, not necessarily get rid immediately but over a period of time, the body would be relieved and would get use to the feeling of relieved nerve pain.

All we can do is try to see what happens.

Maybe we could study this idea with The Thimble Bioelectronics TENS patch which is a wearable pain relief gadget that manages and tracks pain manufacturer?
According to Japanese Pub Med Abstract, “Actual effectiveness of nerve block against neuropathic pain

“Evidence regarding the effectiveness of nerve block in treating neuropathic pain is scarce. However, in actual clinical situations, nerve block has been used as a treatment in combination with other methods, such as pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and physiotherapy. The goal of neuropathic pain treatment is not a complete recovery but some improvement in the activities of daily living (ADL) as well as the quality of life. There is no single effective, definitive treatment for the various causes of neuropathic pain; therefore, the active use of nerve block should be considered in patients who show a positive response to this treatment. This is because nerve block reduces pain and improves the patients’ ADL. Nerve block also has the potential to be effective as an early treatment of and prophylaxis for neuropathic pain. Therefore, the use of nerve block should be considered from the onset of pain. In recent years, methods such as ultrasound-guided nerve block and thermocoagulation with pulsed radio frequency have become more commonly used as safer and more accurate nerve block techniques. This article discusses the current clinical status of nerve block against neuropathic pain.” Nishiyama T, Ohseto K. Brain Nerve. 2012 Nov;64(11):1299-306. Review. Japanese.

According to a new study, “143 people listened to music while they received a painful shock in their fingertip. Participants were asked to follow the melodies, and identify unusual tones in an effort to take their mind off the pain.”

It appeared to work. Members’ agony or pain diminished as they turned out to be more caught up in the tunes. The individuals who were the most on edge procured the most torment calming advantages when they got to be occupied with the music.

“Our outcomes recommend that connecting with exercises like music listening may be best to reduce torment in high-nervousness persons who can undoubtedly get to be caught up in exercises,” close scientists drove by David H. Bradshaw, PhD, from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

The study did not take a gander at diverse sorts of music and whether relieving music worked best. Bradshaw says the kind of music isn’t as imperative as how well it holds the understanding’s advantage.

I have noticed myself and it does allow you to focus on the music more than the pain itself, but when taken headsets off can go back to the pain.

Music, also if allowed gives you this sense of creativity and a sudden urge to do anything but think about pain.

In my case it motivates my writing abilities and am getting better as time progresses.

There has got to be a method to our pain madness and I do believe that music works in this world!

What Should I Eat To Heal My Gut? by Valerie Cheers Brown

Next time you go to the doctor, ask your doctor this question and watch how funny they look at you! They don’t even know because they are not even taught this in medical school in the United States.

What if doctors didn’t get paid unless they first cured and then healed?

There would be pretty many broke doctors wouldn’t it be?

What if the Pharmaceutical Industry didn’t get paid unless they gave a medicine first for patient to try to see if it works, then they would buy and they would then be paid only after it worked for a period of time where they could then be taken off of?

Yeah, I know I am dreaming, if you have never asked yourself these types of questions you are not worried about your own health.

There would be a very broke Pharmaceutical Industry wouldn’t it be?

Well, it doesn’t work quite that way in the real world.

Let’s take a look at what medicine truly meant to and for the Greek medicine world.

The Greek set the path and where did we go wrong as Americans in the United States when it comes to protecting our patients and making them feel better?

I thought we were suppose to take what was given to us left by the Greek/Roman, etc. and learn from what and why they did what they did, and then improve if necessary for betterment of all man lives and mostly mans health and importantly well-being. We instead, are making and causing patients all other kinds of illnesses from taking medications with side effects? Aren’t you worried? I am and not only am I worried, I am tired of it!

Let’s take a look at modern or advanced medical practice as we see it today.

Advanced or Modern MEDICAL PRACTICE

Advanced restorative practice has some compatibility to its roots in antiquated Greece. Specialists still have a liberal training and take a wide range of classes. They likewise do heaps of reading. Subsequent to putting in four years in school to get a degree, they take in any event an additional four years of school classes that include top to bottom investigation of solution and rehearsing with specialists in an entry-level position. In the temporary job, the understudy specialist gains from the expert specialist by watching and helping with genuine restorative cases. After effectively finishing the entry-level position, the new specialist graduates and can begin honing solution all alone.

But, you don’t hear one very important about today’s doctors and this is the study of NUTRITION and how important what we eat is essential and healing for our bodies, souls and minds. How come the importance of NUTRITION is not taught in medical schools in the United States?

It may appear to be peculiar to us that, in prior times, individuals knew how to protect vegetables for long stretches without the utilization of coolers or canning machines through the procedure of lacto-aging. Lactic corrosive is a characteristic additive that represses festering microscopic organisms. Starches and sugars in vegetables and organic products are changed over into lactic corrosive by the numerous types of lactic-corrosive creating bacteria…The old Greeks comprehended that critical synthetic changes occurred amid this kind of maturation. Their name for this change was “speculative chemistry.” Like the maturation of dairy items, protection of vegetables and natural products by the procedure of lacto-aging has various points of interest past those of basic safeguarding. The expansion of lactobacilli in aged vegetables upgrades their absorbability and expands vitamin levels. These valuable life forms deliver various accommodating chemicals and also anti-toxin and anticarcinogenic substances. Their fundamental by-item, lactic corrosive, not just keeps vegetables and natural products in a condition of flawless safeguarding additionally advances the development of solid greenery all through the intestine.


Greek specialists did not need to get licenses like specialists do today. Anyway, how could they have been able to they control the specialist’s preparation? Think about the way specialists take in their practice today with the way specialists took in their practice 2500 years prior in Greece. What is comparative and what is distinctive?

The Hippocratic Oath is still utilized today, but is it honestly being practiced per oath ethics of human lives?

You never hear very much that magic word ethics when it comes to medicine or even prescribed drugs in this country, but when we try to pursue lawsuits then it comes out. Who is utilizing ethics the one being used or the one using or even the one prescribing medication with all types of side effects. If would go even further in delving the culprit, the industry who is making and then approving these drugs or the government who is allowing this bad things to happen to human lives from prescribed medications and all of the side effects or massive contradictions?

According to a report by the John’s Hopkins Sheridan Libraries, “The origin of the “modern” Hippocratic Oath is not 100% certain, despite the credit to Dean Lasagna.  The Encyclopedia of Bioethics (2003) says:

  • “A document patterned after the Oath of Hippocrates appeared in 1948, when the newly organized World Medical Association (WMA) adopted the Declaration of Geneva. In 1991, 47 U.S. medical schools used it (Dickstein et al.). (Of the remainder, 14 schools used the Prayer of Maimonides or more recently written oaths.)

It’s a specialist’s vow to do the most ideal job of healing for the patient. Analyzed over the Hippocratic Oath and portray what the specialist promises to do and vows not to do (particularly).

What did antiquated Greek specialists do to get patients? Contrast that and how specialists get patients today.

How did antiquated Greek specialists live? Contrast that and how specialists live today.


In the late sixth century B.C., two Greek city-states were acclaimed for their specialists, those of Croton (in Southern Italy) and Cyrene (in Northern Africa). Be that as it may, in the fifth century the most popular focuses were Cos, the origination of Hippocrates, and Cnidus, simply inverse Cos on the terrain of Asia Minor. They created prospering restorative schools. These schools turned into the fundamental habitats for the educating of medication, and the specialists connected with either place shared certain restorative practices. The guideline in these schools was exceptionally casual, contrasted with now. No set term was made to the time of preparing that a medicinal understudy ought to experience, nor toward the end of it did he acquire an endorsement of his entitlement to rehearse. So far as is known no legitimate or general system existed to keep a novice, an insufficiently prepared student, or a quack from rehearsing. His setting up himself as a specialist depended not on how he had been prepared, but rather all alone inner voice, the notoriety he procured by and by, and keeping the certainty of his customers.

It may seem odd that the Greeks, subsequent to raising prescription to another level, didn’t have some way that they could shield themselves from those doctors who had no idea about what they were doing. Yet, in the event that you consider two circumstances commonplace of the Greek world, it will demonstrate to you that it is not to be considered as abnormal.

The student framework, in which Greek specialties were sorted out, is a self-policing one. That will be, that each of the bosses (real doctors) would watch the students and verify they found themselves able to carry out their employment.

The fracture of the Greek world into its several autonomous states made verging on inconceivable the sort of framework that alone could have given a check upon the medicinal calling. The doctor, honing as an individual, offered excessively awesome an issue. The Hippocratic Oath may have given some sort of proof of finished preparing. Additionally, participation at one of the schools, ordinarily that of Cos, would give proof as to the specialist’s capabilities. As a major aspect of “liberal” learning, solution would be a matter of addresses and books, of hypothesis and political theory. After the majority of this preparation most free doctors would go get guideline in the hypothetical parts of their art at a composed school.


“I swear by Apollo the doctor and Aesculapius, and Health, and every one of the divine beings and goddesses, that, as indicated by my capacity and judgment, I will keep this Oath and this prerequisite — to treat him who taught me this Art just as dear to me as my guardians, to impart my substance to him, and assuage his weights if required; to look upon his youngsters in the same path as my own particular siblings, and to show them this workmanship, if by chance that they should wish to learn it, without charge; and that by each method of direction, I will share an information of the Art to educates bound by vow as indicated by the law of drug, yet to none others. I will take after that arrangement of which, as per my capacity and judgment, I consider for the advantage of my patients, and stay away from whatever is undesirable. I will give no savage prescription to any one if asked, nor propose. With virtue and with sacredness I will pass my life and practice my Art. Into whatever houses I enter, I will go into them for the advantage of the wiped out, and will maintain a strategic distance from each demonstration of underhandedness. Whatever regarding my expert administration I see or hear which should not to be mystery, I will keep mystery. While I keep on keeping this Oath, might it be conceded to me to appreciate life and the act of the craftsmanship, regarded by all men, in all times. Be that as it may, if I trespass and abuse this Oath, might the opposite transpire


When all is said in done, Greek specialists honed secretly, with infrequent job by a city-state for a year on end. Also, to make certain that the specialists didn’t profit, they were requested to, when vital, treat their patients without installment. The standard principle was that specialists charged their patient for their administrations. While a few specialists were for all time inhabitant in a specific city, a huge number went from spot to put looking as a profession and because of the interest for specialists. The shaky position of the specialist is reflected in numerous elements of Greek medicinal practices. In this manner, one of the objectives of the determination is to awe the patient and win his certainty. The Greek specialists would attempt to tell their patients not just what was going to transpire additionally their present and past side effects. The act of forecast was apparently a critical mental weapon in the fight to win the patients’ certainty. By acknowledging and reporting previously which patients were going to kick the bucket, he would dodge any fault.

Okay, so we discussed three (3) important issues.

  • recognize the foundations of modern medicine in ancient Greece.
  • compare ancient Greek medical practices with those of today.
  • describe the relationship between modern and ancient medicine as well as describe the development of medicine from ancient to modern medicine.

You know I have had conversations with doctors which when I go to the emergency room and I ask them questions and they look at me like what? My vocabulary is a bit more extensive than theirs I hate to say and I have not been to med school, but I do read and I do love to read about the human body so I can learn about how to keep mine in tip-top shape.

You mention the “mitochondria,” and they look at you like you said a foreign word?

The more healthy mitochondria your body contains, the better you’ll feel, and the more vigorous your digestion system will be. A strong mitochondrial power means better vitality and center, and more noteworthy capacity to maintain abnormal amounts of movement without exhausting.

Mitochondria produce vitality by separating sustenance, clarifies Bruce H. Cohen, MD, a neurologist at Northeast Ohio Medical University and a specialist in mitochondrial infection. At that point they discharge that vitality as ATP, alongside a few side effects, similar to carbon dioxide, water, and free radicals.

Free radicals are charged, profoundly dynamic particles that tilt around the body, responding with tissue. With some restraint, free radicals can offer us some assistance with fighting disease. In abundance, on the other hand, they wreak ruin, harming cell tissue, disintegrating our bodies, and bringing about runaway aggravation.

All I am saying in short is that NUTRITION is essential in healing our bodies first and foremost before anything else can be healed!

Common Sense is My Therapy by Valerie Cheers Brown

What does forward thinking mean?

According to Merriam Webster Dictionary it means thinking about the future.

Should we be thinking about the future or should we be thinking about right now?

Why are there so many scientific studies and do they really help?

“A new scientific study concludes that there are too many scientific studies. Written by researchers in Finland and California, it is entitled “Attention Decay In Science” (pdf).”

The paper traces some extremely straightforward and troublesome substances. For instance, it noticed that researchers can’t stay informed concerning all the studies in their field. Also, it reasons that the reference rate of papers is quickly declining after some time.

Amazing, and, it was scientists who created our caring, sharing, digital world with so much social media outlets especially for music to be listened to..

Let’s see if they can get us beyond it by using the craft of musicians, artists and their music for health benefits.

With us being in the video era, couldn’t musicians, artists just do videos and see what happens themselves with music with different illnesses and diseases?

Yes, I know we need science but for something as simple as playing music for a patient suffering with any kind of illness, it is not as if they will get any side effects from or hurt them.

I can only think of one main thing what music can do and that is to cause a reaction for anybody or make them either want to dance or sing with music.

I cannot even believe that music could be called the term society calls it non-evidenced based treatment.

It either works or it does not?

If anybody uses music like many of us do, they will know the effects of what music really can do.

There are all kinds of music which can heal all kinds of illnesses and diseases and I am a proven case.

I can hardly believe the many negative stories out there writing and reporting that music is a non-evidenced based treatment?

I know what music can do and it has helped me with nerve pain and actually has almost completely gotten rid of it for me.

And the best thing is that I don’t need prescribed medications anymore thanks to music.

Music and writing has been my method to my nerve pain madness which I have very little anymore.

When I was on medication, the pain got worst if you ask me because the next day I did not want to do a thing and was groggy, lazy and could not think straight.

I was supposed to be on a Neurontin or Gabapentin for the rest of my life and that medicine is the pits and I got myself off of and was told by doctors not to stop abruptly, but I managed and got myself off of and feel so much better.

Maybe music is considered non-evidenced  based treatment because then the pharmaceutical Industry would not make any money, you think?

In the history. I have never seen so many children suffering with autism in my life and/or ADD or ADHD.

I believe I had ADD when I was a kid, but I was so active and back then in the 1950’s was not even spoken about and if it were my parents were not having us on medication.

We are active children and I was very active in gymnastics, something the doctors said I would not be able to participate in because of asthma and scoliosis.

I thank God for me participating and being active when a kid and am still active and walk daily and don’t have asthma anymore and scoliosis is under control and I am managing by eating properly, exercising and speaking about it.

Look at all of the medicine prescriptions which would not be filled if music were to become an evident-based treatment.

According to the Autism Science Foundation, healthcare fraud is a big business in the United States.

Fringe treatment suppliers prey on distress and trepidation, and cheat many people of all ages with various unwarranted cases.

Why can’t we as people using common sense just begin to try alternative methods of healing for ourselves and watch our children closely when they are on medication and if you don’t like what the medication is doing, try something on your own.

How can we go wrong when our children are being given medication which cause other problems.

The movie “First Do No Harm” is speaking about doctors and their oath and I thought the patient was to be first and not prescribed medications.

The little boy in that film was being treated for seizures which turned into more seizures and so many other problems such as constipation and more problems.

Can you imagine a poor baby dealing with constipation and this is what medication will do to you when they keep using you as a guinea pig?

We may as well do our own research and use our bodies as guinea pigs.

I know when I was in nursing school and when it came time to learn to give shots subcutaneous, they asked would you like to use an orange or me. Those smaller needles hurt worst than the big ones to me, and I wanted to learn properly on myself first before I did on anyone else.

So I decided I wanted to do myself and I was sure not going to hurt myself. and I did not want to hurt my patients neither.

So back to the movie, “First Do No Harm” the kid went had really bad seizures and the medication the nurse ordered melted the styrofoam cup so badly that the cup fell apart.

Folks got news for you, that stuff happens in real life if the doctor or nurse don’t know what the heck to do in an emergency situation and we put our own lives into their hands thinking they are supposed to “First Do No Harm.”

The movie was showing facts and I know firsthand what medication can do and watched what it did to both my mother who suffered with MS and my dad who was a diabetic/

My daddy had two strokes due to medication and nobody is going to tell me anything different and I know what caused it because one of the medications he was on was one I was one too and when I saw what it did to him, I stopped it too.

The medication was an anti-depressant, Amitriptyline and again, I was groggy the next day and could hardly function and it was supposed to help with sleeping for me and my dad.

This again reminds me of common sense not being used in this country very much.

This brings me to the movie watched called, “First Do No Harm” with Meryl Streep where when conventional treatments fail, she turns to a much controversial diet after doing research on her own.

Don’t we in this country need to do more research for ourselves and not let conventional treatments be our main goals of life.

When we are prescribed medications which causing all other kinds of issues in this country which make us more sick than we originally were, doesn’t it make sense to maybe try doing more research for ourselves to find natural alternatives for healing and maybe even digging deep enough actually finding people who have been cured and what methods were used to heal and cure.

You know with so much available internet accessible research database today or even going to the library where books and research are sitting, information is just waiting for you and they are even open to the public to use for finding studies that worked!

Find your nearest medical research library and if you let them know what you want to find or do, they will be more than happy to allow you to have at their databases and books for your own research.

All it takes is one healed person and one cured person will be heard

We believe what we hear on the tv, radio, or what we read, but when it is something so beneficial and so positive like our health people are pretty skeptical and this really baffles myself!

I do realize that what may be good for one person may not be good for another but when it comes to our lives, is taking prescribed medications especially for a short or ven long period of time, that shows no signs of improvement worth a try of researching for ourselves and trusting God’s healing with natural methods?

Why are there so many studies and who pays for them?

Most researchers will find it easy to support the majority of the recommendations in a new report by a National Academies panel given that the committee calls for spending tens of billions of new public and private dollars each year on research, training, and infrastructure at the nation’s elite universities.

Who actually benefits from scientific studies?

According to Understanding Science How Science Really Works, “the procedure of science is a method for building learning about the universe — developing new thoughts that light up our general surroundings. Those thoughts are characteristically conditional, yet as they push through the procedure of science over and over and are tried and retested in diverse ways, we turn out to be progressively certain about them.”

“Besides, through this same iterative procedure, thoughts are altered, extended, and consolidated into all the more effective clarifications. For instance, a couple of perceptions about legacy designs in greenery enclosure peas can — over numerous years and through the work of a wide range of researchers — be incorporated with the expansive comprehension of hereditary qualities offered by science today.”

“So, despite the fact that the procedure of science is iterative, thoughts don’t stir through it dully. The cycle effectively serves to build and coordinate investigative inform.”

It all goes back to forward thinking and do we not think that the present right now will make it better for tomorrow or as society’s forward thinking future?

What is most important is our right now and our present and we have not found the method to our own madness in this world right now today.

How can we predict what we are not doing today for the sick?

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” — Socrates

When medications have all of the side effects shouldn’t science be trying to improve that first before it goes on the market?

One main reason I despise the television is all of the side effect commercials and those are medications which are being filled as the commercial is being advertised.

Have the people in this world gone mad?

Who do we blame, the FDA or people for not using common sense?

Well, I am here to tell you that music helps with pain and would be so interested in seeing more musicians maybe holding concerts for different illness or disease groups and their reactions can be recorded for the world to see.

All I can clearly say with proven facts going all the way back to Socrates and Plato, “If you’ve paid much attention to how you respond to a variety of music, you may have noticed that some music seems to energize you, some music can move you to tears or spark a special memory of a time, place, food, or perhaps a certain person. Some music seems to make you relax, feel less stressed, and feel happier. And some music fills us with deep spiritual atonement.”

If music does something to plants when played, think of the effects it could really have on helping our health and well-being to grow into something better with no side-effects.

Music – A Prescription for Healing of Mind, Body and Soul. 

The health of the physical body is inextricably tied to our emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Music is a powerful catalyst for healing because it touches the very core of humanity….our souls.

With music, we can remember our connection to the Creator and the powerful Healer within.

We can take control of our health and our own lives as we enjoy the healing sound of music and we don’t need any scientist to study anything about music and I know it is evidenced-based because I had nerve pain so bad I could not sleep at night but music has helped me increasingly a lot to manage better than ever.

Music is the heart of our soul.  In music one must think with the heart and feel with the brain.

Music is manna for the soul, and nectar for the spirit. It can certainly cross all barriers, languages, politics, sexual orientation, race, creed and religion.
