Sad news about Patricia Meador

Some words from David Burmeister about Pat:
“At the age of 100, nearly 101, Patricia Meador decided to start flying with the angels. God bless you on your journey. 🙏”

I have been thinking a lot about her these last days, and was talking to someone about her, just yesterday, what a special person she was!
I am happy that I had a chance to meet her a couple of years ago, she had a lot of wisdom to share, and I am also happy that I had the good fortune to be able to get sessions with her, to experience her “butterfly hands”, as Wayne Hackett described them.

Honoring Ian Harris

Some words from JSJ inc:
“We are sorry to announce that our dear instructor Ian Harris has passed away. In this WE ARE ONE, we gather to honor his legacy of love, dedication and BEINGness, giving the global community an opportunity to join us in spirit and prayer.Our deepest sympathy goes to his family, friends, and students.Thank you for your messages and the outpouring flow of LOVE.”

Sad news about Ian Harris

David Burmeister shared the very sad news about Ian Harris today:
“We lost our dear friend and teacher to the heavens today. We love you Ian❤️”

He will be deeply missed, many many have had the good fortune to meet him, to take part in his JSJ classes, he shared his deep wisdom with a lot of humor, there were a lot of laughs in his classes. And we had the chance to take part in his class here in Sweden too, we will cherish his memory.

Here are some words about Ian Harris, from the website
Ian Harris spent his early years playing and studying music and riding his bicycle for fun and work, and studying Tai Chi, Meditation, eastern philosophy and yoga – in pursuit of a deeper awareness of himself and the universe. In 1982 he was introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu to receive sessions and soon thereafter attended his first seminar with Mary Burmeister.
He found in Jin Shin Jyutsu the common thread which tied all these other interests together and helped shed light on the many puzzles of life. For more than 30 years he practiced this art and taught Jin Shin Jyutsu since 2000. 
Originally attracted by the simplicity of JSJ and by Mary’s joy and straightforward manner in her teaching, Ian aimed to bring these qualities to his seminars. And so in his classes we could all relax and enjoy the unfolding of this Art.

Självhjälp/egenvårdskurs söndag 23/2, 2020, i Stockholm

Jag har skrivit en inbjudan till självhjälp/egenvårdskurs på lite olika forum – inbjudan kommer här också:
Är du trött på förkylningar, ont i huvudet, ryggont, magproblem? Behöver du hjälp med smärtlindring, starkare immunförsvar, PMS och diverse andra möjliga och omöjliga sjukdomar? Vill du ha ett redskap för stresshantering, att kunna slappna av lättare?
Då är kanske akupressurmetoden Jin Shin Jyutsu något för dig? Det är en kraftfull självhjälpsmetod, besläktad med bland annat akupunktur och shiatsu.

Du behöver bara dina egna händer som redskap – och händerna har du alltid med dig! Det fungerar förstås också att behandla vänner och bekanta med den här metoden.

Jag heter Helene Iliste, och har hållit på med den här metoden sen i mitten på 90-talet – jag anser att det är ett väldigt bra självhjälpsverktyg, det har hjälpt mig mycket i mitt liv, och jag vill gärna dela med mig av sånt som kan hjälpa andra människor att hjälpa sig själva.

Another article about glyphosate, Monsanto, Round-up… by Elias Marat

From Elias Marat, Feb 26, 2019

Toxic Weed Killer Found in Almost All Beer and Wine Brands … Including Organic

Most of the food that we eat makes a long and tortuous journey to our tables, often over great distances or from unknown origins.

Whether it’s factory-farmed eggs, processed chicken, fresh fruit from the west coast, seafood from the east coast, or a glass of wine or ice-cold beer, we often assume that what we’re eating is generally healthy or at least won’t harm us if enjoyed in moderation.

However, a new report by public-interest watchdog group U.S. PIRG has revealed that most of the top beers and wines in the United States are contaminated with glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s weed-killer, Roundup.

Roundup is a controversial herbicide that has been linked to cancer and other health problems in studies by the World Health Organization and the State of California, among others. In recent years, thousands of people have blamed Monsanto for being a key contributor to their cancer, leading to calls across the world for the weed-killer to be banned.

The advocacy group tested five wines and fifteen beers. The beer brands tested included top-sellers Budweiser, Coors, Miller Lite, Sam Adams, Samuel Smith Organic, and New Belgium. The wine brands tested included Beringer, Barefoot and Sutter Home.

Out of the 20 brands tested, glyphosate was found in 19 of them – including in 3 out of 4 organic beers and wines.

Among the beverages with the highest concentration of glyphosate was 2018 Sutter Home Merlot at 51.4 parts per billion (pbb) and Tsingtao, a beer from China, with 49.7 pbb – a rather high level when compared with the U.S. beer with the largest amount, which was Coors Light at 31.1 pbb.

Organic beverages like 2016 Inkarri Malbec lagged behind at 5.3 pbb while 2017 Samuel Smith Lager had 5.7 pbb.

In a statement, organic winery Frey Vineyards noted that while it refrains from the use of both herbicides and pesticides, “glyphosate in trace amounts is now found in rainwater because of its application to conventionally farmed agricultural land. Glyphosate in trace amounts can be found in many food products across the United States. We urge consumers to speak up to ban all use of glyphosate.”

Peak Organic IPA was the sole adult beverage that had no trace of the likely carcinogen.

The group warned that while the level of contamination isn’t necessarily deadly, the discovery raises potential health concerns.

The report noted:

“The levels of glyphosate we found are not necessarily dangerous, but are still concerning given the potential health risks. What is surprising is that glyphosate found its way into almost every type of beer and wine tested, including organic products. That indicates that consumers who want to avoid glyphosate, due to its probably health effects, would have a difficult time doing so. Considering the ubiquity of glyphosate found in many foods tested by other scientists and groups, and the amount of glyphosate sprayed throughout the country, people are constantly exposed to glyphosate.”

While industry representatives have sought to minimize the report in media statements to USA Today, PIRG stressed that it remains important for consumers to understand the potential danger of imbibing pesticides on a regular basis.

Kara Cook-Schultz of the U.S. PIRG Education Fund, who also authored the study, noted:

“No matter the efforts of brewers and vintners, we found that it is incredibly difficult to avoid the troubling reality that consumers will likely drink glyphosate at every happy hour and backyard barbecue around the country.”

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for its part, has fiercely defended the use of glyphosates, telling USA Today in an email that it “found no meaningful risks to human health, including infants and children, when the product is used according to the pesticide label,” and that it has concluded at this stage that the herbicide is “not likely to be carcinogenic” to humans.

The EPA’s conclusion is sharply at odds with that reached by the World Health Organization, which found glyphosate to be a probable carcinogen in 2015 – a conclusion that the State of California concurred with in 2017. Monsanto has tried to appeal the case paving the way for its legal liability, along with parent company Bayer, in thousands of lawsuits where consumers and farmers have blamed Roundup for their incurable cancer.

In October, the first court trial over Roundup’s link to cancer ended with a victory for groundskeeper DeWayne Johnson, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 42 due to the herbicide. Now 46, Johnson will be paid $78 million, but may not live long enoughto receive the money.

And starting Monday, a jury in San Francisco federal court began the first federal case on Roundup’s links to a 70-year-old man’s cancer, which may pave the way for hundreds of similar cases. On its first day, the judge threatened to “shut down” any discussion of Monsanto’s long track-record of pressuring government regulators and manipulating cancer research.

Critics have long accused Monsanto of using its wealth and power to force regulators to declare glyphosate safe, including through outright collusion with EPA officials who killed past investigations by the agency.

Nevertheless, PIRG hopes that their study will help inform consumers about what’s at stake in the federal trial – and what goes into their bodies. The group has called for the ubiquitous herbicide to be banned until it can be proven safe, and for consumers to opt for organic products whenever possible due to the significantly lower amounts of glyphosate found in them.

Cook-Schultz commented:

“With a federal court looking at the connection between Roundup and cancer today, we believe this is the perfect time to shine a spotlight on glyphosate … This chemical could prove a true risk to so many Americans’ health, and they should know that it is everywhere – including in many of their favorite drinks.”

Article from Max Goldberg: GMO Impossible Burger Tests Positive for Glyphosate

Another article in the never ending story about the importance of food, and what’s in it….

Article from Max Goldberg:
As Beyond Meat’s very successful IPO is bringing a lot of attention to the alt-protein category, it is important to take a look at what exactly are in these food products.

One popular name in this space is the Impossible Burger, a product we first wrote about in 2017 when Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents uncovered that the FDA disagreed with the company’s safety assessments of the burger’s main ingredient — soy leghemoglobin. However, the company continued selling it to the public anyhow without informing consumersabout the FDA’s very serious concerns.

The issue this time around with the Impossible Burger is the amount of glyphosate that it contains.

According to Moms Across America, who had the product tested at Health Research Institute Laboratories, the levels of glyphosate were 11x that of the Beyond Meat burger and the total result (glyphosate and its metabolite AMPA) came in at 11.3 parts per billion (ppb).

Why should consumers care about glyphosate?

Because glyphosate is known to the State of California to cause cancer and the World Health Organization says it is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” — which means that it “probably causes cancer to humans.” Glyphosate also happens to be the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, and approximately 250 million pounds of this weed killer are sprayed each year in the U.S.

Recent court cases, including the $2 billion judgment to a couple whose non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was caused by Roundup, have provided more evidence of how harmful this chemical is.

So, the Impossible Burger not only contains a genetically-modified protein that has never been in the human diet until a few years ago, but it has also tested positive for glyphosate.

Additionally, company founder Pat Brown wrote the other day that the Impossible Burger will now be using GMO soy in its burgers. Genetically-modified soy is sprayed with Roundup and is one of Monsanto’s most important products.

“We are shocked to find that the Impossible Burger can have up to 11x higher levels of glyphosate residues than the Beyond Meat burger according to these samples tested. This new product is being marketed as a solution for ‘healthy’ eating, when in fact 11 ppb of glyphosate herbicide consumption can be highly dangerous. Only 0.1 ppb of glyphosate has been shown to alter the gene function of over 4,000 genes in the livers, kidneys and cause severe organ damage in rats. I am gravely concerned that consumers are being misled to believe the Impossible Burger is healthy,” said Zen Honeycutt, Executive Director of Moms Across America.

If you’re looking to switch to a vegan diet or consume less meat, there are numerous organic meatless options out there, such as Hilary’s Veggie Burgers or Don Lee Farms, products that are not genetically modified and whose ingredients have not been sprayed with glyphosate.

While the Impossible Burger may be generating a lot of hype and is Instagram-worthy because of how it “bleeds”, it carries elevated levels of glyphosate when compared to its non-organic peers, and its key ingredients are not found in nature but are manufactured in a laboratory.

Is eating the Impossible Burger a risk worth taking?

As the Institute for Responsible Technology has pointed out, GMOs carry many health risks.

But maybe Steven Molino (who now Tweets under @steven_molino) can answer this for us.

On Twitter, he said that 20 minutes after eating his first Impossible Burger at Bareburger, he “went into anaphylactic shock & taken to ER. Never happened to me before…” His Tweet about going into “anaphylactic shock” has since been deleted.

Tips för hjälp mot huvudvärk/migrän

Här finns lite blandade tips på vad man kan göra, först kan det vara viktigt att se över sin kosthållning, och speciellt det där med sockerkonsumtionen

Se till att utesluta allt socker ur kosten, och även det dolda sockret, dvs juice, läsk, godis, glass, alkohol, lattes, bröd, bullar, kakor, pizza, pasta och andra snabba kolhydrater. Stötta lever/galla genom tillskott på t ex maskrosrot, mariatistel, kronärtskocka, cynaramin, piccrorrhiza, bupleurum, andrographis som te, tinktur eller tabletter, vad som passar bäst. Drick färskpressad citron i en kopp varmt vatten som det första du gör på morgonen. Stötta också gärna med TCM akupunktur, akupressur, shiatsu, tuina, zonterapi och liknande behandlingar. 

Se till att sova tillräckligt mycket, och på regelbundna tider, stressa inte, drick tillräckligt med vatten, se till att få ordentligt med frisk luft varje dag, lågintensiv träning (t ex promenader)
