How Do Drugs Affect Your Brain

How Do Drugs Affect Your Brain?

This is a TED-ED video that was circulating on Facebook that shows how some drugs affect your brain and pass between different parts of your body and your brain.  Even for biologists this is very interesting information because often these things are not known in complet detail.  This is both a review and an education on the transfer of various drugs to the brain and how they work.  This information may make you decide that you do or do not want to take these legal drugs but you must educate yourself before you can make an informed decision. Do not just take the doctor’s recommendation without some knowledge of how they work. Also if you have a friend or family member with a drug problem you will more fully understand what is happening to them.  Legal pain killers have made many patients addicted.

How do drugs affect the brain?

Most of us will take some kind of medicine during our lives, but most of us don’t know anything about how these substances actually work. Here's a look at exactly how drugs affect the brain:

Learn How Your Cells Can Heal Your Body

What I am about to suggest is at the basis of cell function.  You can turn on your own cells so they help your body heal itself.  Teenagers have plenty of cells that help them stay healthy most of the time.  But as one ages even into the mid to late twenties and beyond, one’s own cells start turning off the ability to produce the compounds that kill free radicals in the body.  These free radicals are the source of starting many diseases. Today the free radical problem in the body is called oxidative stress. So if your doctor says that he is talking about free radicals which is what it was called thirty years ago.  You can think about it as rusting of the body.

A chemist with interest in natural medicine had a breakthrough idea in 2005 that started the discovery of the key to turning on your own body cells to produce the anti-oxidants that kill the free radicals.  Free radicals are basically oxidized particles that are like rust in your body and blood stream.  These anti-oxidants attack and kill the rust or oxidized elements.  When the oxidized elements are removed your body is free of the materials that start many modern diseases.

Mouse experiments have shown that longevity is increased by 25% to 30% when using this little pill. The pill is a NRF2 stimulator.  That was the first development.  The second development was a NRF1 stimulator.

Energize Your Body with Ketoboost

Energize Your Body

Check out this video to learn to energize your body.

Ketosis:  A metabolic process that occurs naturally in the body, where fat stores are broken down to release energy and ketones.

You can drop pounds with Ketoboost

I have been taking Ketoboost for about 1.5 months now and am happy to say I have lost 5 lbs.  I have been on a decent diet but not something someone has published as a diet.  I eat vegetables that are good for you such as spinach, cauliflower, carrots, celery, Swiss chard, also fruits and chicken, some beef, pork.  I do not eat very many products that turn to sugar quickly such as potatoes. I switch to sweet potatoes. I avoid chips except for vegetable chips and pork rinse.  I use sweetener instead of sugar if I have ice tea and have reduced the use of juices and cold drinks drastically.

I have energy most days all day now and do not drop into the 3 pm sugar lows I have often had in the past. So I am energizing my body and you energize your body too.

I am doing a lot to look after my body and brain especially because my father died of Alzheimer’s.

Benefits of Keto:

Better energy levels and more stable energy levels along with Clarity of thought. Your moods will be improved and you will find your moods are more stable. Aches and pains in your joints are reduced. Better digestive health can be achieved. Our clients are overall generally happier and healthier on Ketoboost.  Try it today, and see how your mood and overall happiness and physical well being improve.

Gain in Energy,

Loss of Unwanted Fats,

Increase in Stamina.

Other Information:

Science reports a connection between your intestines and brain health. Science has found that proper digestion may help reduce the chances of Alzheimer’s. This is new information so it is still in the study stages and it will be a while before any hard data or results are out but preliminary studies point directly to such an interaction. I was listening to an interview by a health reporter who spoke to a doctor who performed the initial study. My father died of Alzheimer’s so I have a personal interest in this work. I have always been active and healthy but want to stay that way. I am 72 and intend to make it to 100+ with mind and body in tact.

Read about this and other products we have and get going on getting to your weight goals and health goals.

Have you had trouble falling asleep?

Sleep Better now

Sleep is sometimes hard to come by.

And the older you get the more difficult it can be.

Sleep better with Dreameasy

Sleep Better

I know that many people suffer with lack of sleep or lack of quality sleep. If you are one of these people or know someone who is please take a look at this new cutting edge natural product. I am currently using it. I now sleep better and deeper. This is wonderful!

My Story

sleep better

I was having the same issues myself and at 71 I am otherwise healthy and active. But I was not getting quality sleep at night even though I made sure I was in bed for 9 hours most nights.  I would often toss and turn all night and get up wondering if I had ever been to sleep at all during the night. When I got involved with Hyten Global I was very ready to try this new product that was supposed to help you fall asleep faster and get more REM sleep which is the best kind.  The product is Dreameasy and that is a fitting name.  When you first start using this product it may work right away or it may take a few nights to get you to really relaxe and sleep deeply.  For me it took a few nights. And then I realized I had been having some very vivid dreams that were unusual for me in recent years.

The Website “Health” states:

“You know you’re supposed to get seven to nine hours of sleep a night, but sometimes, you stay up for a night out on the town, to finish a project at work, or even just to watch Law & Order reruns. We get it—we’ve all been there, and a late night here and there won’t have any lasting effects beyond the fatigue you feel the next day. It’s when you skimp on sleep night after night that it becomes a real problem. Though you may think your five-hours-a-night habit is nothing to worry about, chronic sleep deprivation has been tied to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression. Read on for subtle signs your body needs more time in bed.”

How are you doing on sleep?

Do you already suffer from any of the diseases listed above? Do you know that some types of diabetic issues can be reversed? Getting enough sleep can help you control your diet and loosing weight can reduce your symptoms of diabetes or even reverse it. Overweight is often putting too much strain on your body and can cause diabetic symptoms to occur. People who are not overweight can eat better to control their issues and get better sleep to assist the body in repairing itself.

Sleep better and eat better

Eat more fresh fruit and fresh green vegetables. Plus eat coconut, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach and other leafy greens to keep on the right track. Sleep better with Dreameasy and get some exercise to really make your body take notice of your intention to improve yourself.

You are the one who has to make the decision to do better by your body. No one else will do that for you. A doctor will recommend that you do certain things. And you listen and forget and go on enjoying your life and sweet deserts. Sugar is the number one downfall of our diets. And We in the USA eat way too much sugar and have for the last 50 years.  Look at pictures from the 1940’s and 1950’s. See the lack of heavy set people and then look at pictures from today and there is a large difference.

Eliminate this food first.

French fries turn to sugar very fast after you eat them. This is one thing you can easily avoid. But will you? Will you make the decision to take better care of your body and live longer?

At least try to get better sleep and see if that gives you new desire to help your body.

Prevent Cancer with sufficient Selenium

I listened to an interview by a doctor who said do not take chemotherapy if you have cancer. The main reason Most Doctors want you to take Chemo is because they get paid big money for it. There is a study he quoted that found out there is no proof of benefit to patients that take chemo And chemo kills lots of patients. Dr. Glidden could read and understand the report because of his training. He does not recommend chemo to anyone and said there are lots of homeopathic therapies that do a lot more for the patients than chemo and do not kill the patients and cost less. Listen to this video for yourself.

Chemotherapy is a Waste of Money

He suggests that there would be no cancer around if people took a sufficient amount of selenium each day. He indicates that one product would prevent most or all cancers in adults.

This is very interesting to me because I am a breast cancer survivor and I believe strongly in vitamins. I chose not to take chemo. It was not strongly suggested I do, but I did not want it no mater what. My cancer was in 1996 so I have been cancer free for 21 years now. I take Maitake mushroom as a preventative also.

I know people who have used this product alone to clear up breast cancer in two months. The lady had ex-rays done that indicated she needed a double mastectomy. This women did not want that and A friend took her back home and got her set up with Maitake mushroom. This lady took it three times a day and in two months went back to the doctor for another ex-ray. She was found to be free of all indications of cancer in her breasts.

The 10 Questions to Ask Before Cancer Treatment

Selenium is required by the body for proper functioning of the thyroid gland, and may help protect against free radical damage and cancer. A deficiency in selenium can lead to pain in the muscles and joints, unhealthy hair, and white spots on the fingernails. Long term cases of deficiency may lead to Hashimoto’s disease, a condition in which the body’s own immune system attacks the thyroid. An excess of selenium can lead to bad breath, or diarrhea, and even hair loss. The current daily value (DV) for selenium is 70μg (micrograms).  The amount of selenium in any product varies greatly by the amount of selenium in the soil in which it was produced/grown or raised. Be sure to check individual labels, and if you have a deficiency in selenium, get tested after changing your diet to be sure you are eating adequate amounts.

France Under Siege Refugees Riot

France Under Siege Large groups of Muslim “refugees” trying to interfere with traffic.

I saw two videos today of France under siege.  Large groups of Muslim “refugees” trying to interfere with traffic. Another group on the streets blocking them.

What is happening to France?

The first one the refugees were running all over a highway trying to stop cars and trucks and throwing things at the vehicles.  One of the trucks was equipped with a camera and was filming all that it passed by. The driver was cursing in French but there was an English translation.  The translation ran too fast for me to read every word.  But seeing the action sort of told the story of what was going on at the moment.  The driver got fed up and acted like he would run down some of the men after several minutes of being belted with objects and having his mirror damaged or rotated so he could not see his trailer. As the video moved along the highway merged with another road but there were more refugees.  All young men, by the way.  Who ever heard of refugees being made up of all young men??  Usually its families with a mixture of women children older men and a few young men.  My thought is that this is an army sent to overpower Europe one country at a time and they are headed here.

The second video showed refugees, again all young men, trying to close a freeway.  They drug all kinds of things onto the road plus having lots of people on the road.  They then started a fire in some tires. They were throwing things at cars and other vehicles but mostly small cars. Finally they stopped all but one lane each direction and had it almost stopped but some few cars kept getting threw. Then finally police and maybe firemen started showing up.  The officers first looked like they were going to just stand there but finally they started trying to move the refugees along.  One officer grabbed a refugee and then the officers partner helped. It looked like they might actually arrest that one but then the video stopped so I do not know.

Will France just let this invasion happen?

France better hurry up and start getting control of this situation or France is going to be a complete hell hole. I saw a tweet that said that a large percentage of Paris residents do not feel safe anywhere and I believe that.  Since I have not seen a video of the rape that one group reported I do not know if it is true but, the report said that a seven year old girl was gang rapped by five Muslim refugees in the center of a square right in public view.

The refugees have become so embolden that not much except shooting them is going to stop the problem.  The army needs to go in and have marshal law declared and round up the refugees and send them back where they came from.  They can commit mayhem in their own country and be dealt with by their countries rules.

Would you let this happen to the USA?

I know that I will fight for every square foot of the United States of America. I will not wear those stupid habits or the head scarves. I will not give up my rights as a citizen of the USA.  Any one who submits to Sharia is doing just that. They are giving up their rights.

Immigration Problems and Issues

I just saw a video on the rate of immigration into the United States over the last 40 or 50 years. To say the least it was shocking.

For one thing, we used to take in an average of 200,000 immigrants per year back in the 1950’s and 1960’s but then in the 1970’s Congress decided that the US would start taking in more immigrants or refugees.  Then Congress decided in the 1980’s to increase that number again. And in the 1990’s Congress decided to increase the number of immigrants coming into the US again.

None of these increases were voted on by the American people, and in fact if asked 90% approximately would answer that they did not agree with letting in more and more immigrants.

The worst thing about the situation is that we cannot absorb more than 200,000 per year on a regular basis. So now we have more people coming in than we can handle.  More than we can find jobs for.  More than we can educate or possibly even feed normally.  This might be part of why we do not have room for our homeless veterans.  They are possibly being squeezed out by immigrants.

At any rate we cannot deal with the 1 million per year that are coming in now.  This is a ridiculous number of immigrants. That is a greater population than a great number of our cities.  That is 1/3 to 1/2 the whole population of New Mexico.

This is an unsustainable situation and it must be stopped.  The numbers have to be ratcheted back to reality.  The sustainable amount is 200,000 and that is all that should get in per year.

Now none of this even considered all the illegal immigration or people who cross boarders without papers. When you add those numbers to the immigration numbers it is of course much worse.

ICE must round up and deport as many illegal immigrants as it can possibly find.  This will only help some.

Congress must be forced to change the number of legal immigrants back to 200,000 per year.  Our way of life is totally threatened.  People who are US citizens but not even born yet are going to inherit the problems created over the last 40 years with increased immigration.

Do you want your children and grand children to have a much less quality of life than yours and possibly be homeless or starving because of the Congress of the last number of years.  Most of these people you did not vote for. None of us as individuals has much control over these old congressmen.  We have to vote them out and get this immigration thing under control.

We also need term limits in Congress to try and stop the Congress from taking on a life of its own without seemingly any control by the people who they are supposed to be “serving”.  They are only serving themselves if they have a life estate.

This is something every US citizen needs to be on top of.  We need to vote out these people and get new ones that we have more control over. If something is not done this country will be ruined.

My love of this country and interest in the future will be thrown away if no one does anything to change the situation and fast.


Wow we are moving forward with Rory Ricord

Wow we are moving forward with Rory Ricord

Rory Ricord

I am listening to one of the calls for mentors and junior mentors and the information coming out is fantastic.  We are getting many leads and working toward keeping up with the mentors getting junior mentors so we will be ready to handle the numbers coming on board.

This is such a great program that can be done by anyone and help everyone who sticks with it.  You can supplement your income at first and then replace your income as long as you are willing to work with the program and bring other people up with you.

The quality of service is great and it must be kept up in order to keep the momentum going and take care of the new people coming up.

We are looking at working with getting people through some new methods and that will double the number of signups we are now working with.

I am starting to learn how to be a junior mentor and will be helping people get started with their link post blogging sites and get on board with the other opportunities we have.

Rory is working on developing new opportunities for the future which is also very exciting.  The mentors take some of the pressure off Rory so he can do things that he does best and help all of use get ahead faster.

Rory is so interesting and dynamic that it is hard to believe all that is wrapped up in one person.  He is so excited about what he has produced and what he is now putting in place.

You just have to listen to some of his calls and enthusiasm to see what I mean.  If you join us you will see what I mean.

You can go to to see what I mean.  Read about the program and about Rory.  He is now 28 years in this business.  He started off line and developed the first part of his program. Then he moved online as the internet became more important, and has taken off becoming the top person in the field that he basically designed.  That is link post blogging.  Other people used blogging and posting links but Rory put it all together and made more out of the method than any of the parts along could produce.

I am so glad I found out about this system.  I had been looking for years and I have been scammed by many but now I have the way that works.  Come look and join me.

Back From class-fairy shrimp of California

Just Got Back From a Class on the fairy shrimp of California

Fairy Shrimp of California

I got back from California and was very happy with my very small class. The class is studying the fairy shrimp of California. Everyone learned to identify the fairy shrimp of California and had a good time.  They worked hard and stuck to the task.  They all made 100 on the exam.  The test is a practical where the participants have bottles of specimens and they have their notes and they go to work.

There are from one to four species per bottle.  The test is set up like a real world test.  In other words, just like you drove down the road and collected many ponds and puddles and then brought the animals back to the lab.  You sort them and identify them and record your results.  We did not do any mapping of the specimens but using the table of coexistence one could easily see where one would normally find the species identified.

The participants must decide if what they have identified makes sense or whether they might have misidentified some animal.  Some of the results are already published and of course those are easier to get correct.  Some results have to be inferred from the type of habitat and water conditions that it is normally found in.

fairy shrimp of California

If the participants pay attention and take good notes and listen to the formal lecture they will have all the answers to the test.  The lecture is less than 1/3 of the class.  Most of the class is using the microscopes to identify the animals.  We use a key with all the parts of the animals laid out in pictures to help with the identification.  I have been studying these animals for quite a few years and have come up with some ways of looking at them that are not in the book or the key and that is why it is important for the participants to listen and get those points down in their notes.

It is a lot of fun to interact with the people and to play with the animals and I enjoy the travel.  It does get a bit tiring but I try to go to bed early each day so I have the energy to work hard with the participants.  It is my responsibility to bring them through the course with flying colors.
