Today, I am going to show you how sleep mechanistically really happens in you and all humans. In my view, the modern biology of sleep can be viewed as an emergent property of the physical laws of chemistry, which, in turn, can be viewed as an emergent property of subatomic particle physics and how those particle interact. The interaction of these particles often causes consternation and confusion in people who have a “biologic bent” in their mind’s eye. I suggest if you are one of these people, you begin to embrace the complexity and paradox. Because when you do, you begin to see quantum actions specifically, not driving your own “consensus in thought.”Continue Reading
Over the past months, Jack’s been educating us on the three pillars of health: light, water and magnetism. For those who’ve heard the September and October webinars, Jack has given us additional information that build upon what he’s written in the blogs. But how do we bring it all together? The Quantum Health Model will help bring it all together.Continue Reading
Thirty years ago, autism affected 1 in 500 children. In recent years, scientists have made extraordinary advances in understanding the causes of autism. Autism now is estimated to afflict 1 in 88 children in the USA. In certain parts of the USA, it is found in 1 in 44 births. But remarkably little of this understanding has percolated into popular awareness, which often remains fixated on vaccination linkage to the disease.Continue Reading
If you have a documented deficiency of a vitamin or mineral, it would only make sense to replace that nutrient. If you have less than optimal hormone levels, it is becoming ‘in vogue’ to supplement or replace that hormone as well. But with hormone deficiencies showing up at increasingly earlier ages, at what point do we draw the line and investigate alternatives?Continue Reading
The human genome is the first draft of what we might be, but our life experience within the environment we choose to exist is where the final draft of our book is written. An architect far smarter than us has given us that epigenetic toolbox, and we now have the ability to use it by altering our behaviors to change our lives and reverse diseases.Continue Reading
Everyone knows that sleep is important. But why and how does sleep happen? How does it work to regenerate us? In this webinar, we’re going to explore the answers to all of these questions and so much more. This webinar will give you the complete Quantum Sleep story in humans, with no stone unturned. Many of the concepts we’ll explore in this webinar have been touched on in the blogs over the last several months, and this webinar will weave them all together.Continue Reading
This will probably be the most important blog in the entire Quilt. It is how I see the three fundamental laws of nature integrating and coordinating the physiologic function of animating life. It is how all life works as a collective phenomena.Continue Reading
In the end, science is just a progress report of where we are now in our understanding. It is not our final destination, but it is a data point on the road to understanding. Where we are today in science, in understanding how the brain really works, is close to where man was 2,000 years ago in trying to understand how the planets moved in relation to the sun. We are nowhere close to where we should be. So if we are that far away in our understanding, how can we begin to make sense of it all? We can learn a lot from the macrocosm of space if we scale it to biology on this planet.Continue Reading
As open enrollment begins on Oct. 1, 2013, many of us need to figure out if the insurance we’re being offered is the best plan given our current medical issues and how we plan to mitigate their effects on our bodies and our lifestyles. In order to help you out, I’m going to provide a short synopsis of the major types of health insurance currently offered in the United States that I went into detail during the Doctors and Health Insurance Bootcamp. Hopefully this short refresher will solidify a better understanding that will help you to ask the right questions of your employer, individual health insurer or the health exchanges to find the right plan to meet your health insurance needs.Continue Reading
We are all products of our environment. Our genes are the first draft of what we are created to be, but the experience those genes face (epigenetics) is how the novel of our life is really written. This blog is about how this experience begins to unfold in our species.Continue Reading
How important is time really to life?
Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is time.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is running! Make the most of today.
To realize the value of one year, ask a student who failed a grade. To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one week, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who just missed a train. To realize the value of one second, ask someone who just avoided an accident. To realize the value of one millisecond, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.Continue Reading
“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.” – Douglas Everett
What if I were to tell you that Einstein’s “theory of relativity” is not just about time being relative to the observer. What if I told you a core set of beliefs shared by enough people could actually set up an alternative reality and force you to live by its rules. Do you think the laws of quantum mechanics could some how shed light on this? Would you believe it, if I told you I believe it?
Today, we are going to show you just how “thoughts” are quantum endocrine secretions that can do just that.
I want to introduce you to the people of Monza, Italy. In July of 2004, they outlawed round fishbowls for goldfish. When the council members were questioned by the world media about this new law, they stunned many people with their answer even further.
They said the primary reason they passed the law is that they felt that the curved glass confines of the gold fishes existence might cause them to have a distorted view of “reality”. Now on the surface, this story may not have any relevance to you, but I assure you, it does.Continue Reading
Qualia is defined by some as “an unfamiliar term for something that could not be more familiar to each of us: the ways things seem to us.”
Erwin Schrödinger was a famous quantum physicist, and had this counter-materialist take on what qualia really is:
“The sensation of color cannot be accounted for by the physicist’s objective picture of light-waves. Could the physiologist account for it, if he had fuller knowledge than he has of the processes in the retina and the nervous processes set up by them in the optical nerve bundles and in the brain? I do not think so.”
Schrodinger’s statement is hinting at precisely what is ailing the modern sciences in a big way. Observations and the manner in which we study things are being divorced from one another. It is as if all scientist have been trained to think only with their left brain and just ignore the creative observations of their right brain. The problem with this situation is that is has put 50 years of mankind at serious risk in medicine.Continue Reading
Two years ago I gave you the Hormone 101: Clinical thoughts revealed blog post. That was a small dose of reality at the beginning of this journey. There was some foundational hormone biochemistry there given to you in simple terms. Most people jumped all over the free T3 link to pregnenolone in the post. They thought that “their cure” for hypothyroidism and/or chronic pregnenolone steal syndrome was increasing free T3 or just lowering reverse T3 to raise pregnenolone. So what was not observed?
A trip down memory lane for the hormone cascade
Leptin resistance occurs first in the brain. Then insulin resistance happens soon their after in the liver, gut, and peripheral tissues. This eventually leads to adrenal resistance. This resistance occurs at the PVN in the brain. (Brain Gut 16: Adrenal Fatigue Rx) It does not happen in the adrenal gland. What happens is that the outflow from our sympathetic system in the brainstem overwhelms the parasympathetic nervous system. This increase in overall cortisol initially, is the stress hormone that allows for fight or flight syndrome (life or death). As this condition persists chronically over time, cortisol levels decrease and flatline on adrenal stress index testing.Continue Reading
It has been close toa year that we last did a CPC blog post. (CPC #5 The Leaky Gut/Adrenal Fatigue Case) CPC stands for a clinico-pathologic conference that we often see in medical schools that our used for teaching students and doctors.
Today we are going to talk about a disease that has perplexed medicine for hundreds of years. Pseudotumor cerebri is also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) today. It goes by many names in the literature. I have decided to discuss this disease because it highlights many of the cornerstone principles of how quantum electrodynamic theory affect water chemistry. This change in water chemistry can lead to biologic effects. The biologic effects of water can be seen in modern humans when we look for them and correctly observe what is really going on. So today we see how the macrocosm affects the microcosm of a modern disease.Continue Reading
Life is energy. All life is tied to our sun. The sun powers everything with the photoelectric effect. Today, you are going to see how this quantum effect makes life dance.
To synthesize simple carbohydrates from sunlight requires 30 proteins to work together in a cell membrane. Research into the mechanism of photosynthesis centers on the understanding the structure of the photosynthetic components and the molecular processes that use radiant EMF energy to drive carbohydrate synthesis. The research involves several disciplines, including physics, biophysics, chemistry, structural biology, biochemistry, molecular biology and physiology, and serves as an outstanding example of the success of multidisciplinary research. This process should give us a clue that systems thinking about problems could solve many modern mysteries.
In our universe, and in all life forms, energy’s primordial state is not rest. Energy does not like to sit around like a couch potato. If you do sit around often like this, this is a quantum sign that you are losing energy in the forms of electrons, photons, phonons, and protons to you own environment. Today’s blog is on the quantum biology of energy dynamics. In the universe, as there is in things living energy is always present. The key factor, however, for life is the amount of energy in its therapeutic dose. A body without energy is called a cadaver. A body with a lot of energy is like a trendy party animal. Energy propels our planes, trains and automobiles to move, and it keeps us warm, grows our food, and helps us see the world we live in.Continue Reading
Today, I am getting ready to do a podcast later tonight with Ben Greenfield and I have an idea of where it will head. Today’s blog is a head start for those of you who are interested.
Most humans are innately aware of the existence of fundamental laws of nature. These are the laws that define our material existence of our universe that we physically inhabit and that currently define our conscious existence. But what humans fail to realize is that how these laws, when singled out for dissection seem so contrary to our common sense. This series is slowly reminding you that the rules of life follow the physical laws who are their counterpart, even when your beliefs cause you to think otherwise. When you begin to explore the microcosm of our quantum reality you begin to see how the macrocosm is constructed and why things work in the fashion they do. It shows us at a deeper level, under all the subjectivity and paradox that life seems to hold, we can always find bedrock of objective and concrete rules to be a beacon for us to follow. They key, however, is knowing where to look for them. Scientific objectivity is derived directly from the unwavering and unchanging laws that govern physics. This allows us to feel secure in drawing inferences and conclusions we draw from them to build our world view beliefs upon. Today, we are beginning to realize in healthcare some of our beliefs have allowed us to stray far from the epistemologic foundation of the laws of physics.Continue Reading
There is so much buzz now in modern healthcare and on the internet about Vitamin D but does anyone really know how it is integrated into our physiology? Most people understand that Vitamin D is tied into our bone’s metabolism and our immune system’s function but there is a lot more to this story. Vitamin D and its receptor, along with Vitamin A and its RXR receptor are among the oldest chemicals life has used to exist in evolutionary biology. This alone tells you how important Vitamin D is for function. Vitamin D is directly modulated by photoelectric effect, which is a foundational law of nature and quantum mechanics. The skin and brain are both derived from neuroectoderm in all animals. In EMF 2, we saw how obesity might be related to an inflammatory condition found in the brain due to a lack of electrons and photons. Today, we are going to examine how Vitamin D works in a quantized fashion.
Many physicians have confided in me that just do not believe that Vitamin D levels are that big of a deal for most patients. When they say that to me, I return a smile. It is not that big a deal for the doctor, but it is a huge clue about what is going on with the patient. For me, it is one of the most critical lab ‘thermostat values’ that tell me about the “preload of their semiconductors” in their skin and body. Yes, it is a quantum signal, to me as a physician. If you remember from the video’s made at Paleo Fx 2011 and our Optimal reset challenge, that I said we can do a quick “biohack” using three labs and tell a lot about the person’s current conditions of existence and where they need to go. Those three labs were the HS-CRP, DHEA, and Vitamin D. So far we covered DHEA in detail in the CPC blog of 6/30/2012 and in the back half of EMF 7. We have covered HS CRP in multiple places. Inflammation is the major signal that all biologic processes and respond to. It is what the hormone panel responds to and it dictates the thermostat for mitochondrial efficiency, signaling, and control of the cell cycle. The inflammatory signal also sets the tone for “tight” circadian control via the adenosine signal.Continue Reading
‘For any quadruped to get up on its hind legs in order to run is an insane thing to do. It’s plain ridiculous.’ – Owen Lovejoy
Today, we are going to talk about the one thing that really separates humans from all other mammals. We began to walk upright before we developed a big brain. It was our first defining evolutionary change from chimp to human. The reasons why our legs grew first is generally credited to our big brain needing a larger birth canal and causing changes in the genitourinary system. There is one big problem with this theory; We grew legs long before we developed a large complex brain. The brain did not drive bipedalism.
Many modern evolutionary biologist take upright walking for granted because they can do it easily so it appears a natural progression of evolutionary progress. Not even Darwin could explain this evolutionary jump. There has never been another change like it in the biologic record.
It might seem a poor topic for some, because many people have found it easy to explain in their own mind; After all, bipedalism did not strike the early evolutionists as a “difficult thing” to explain. When Darwin wrote ‘The Descent of Man’ he did not even bother to list it in his index. Fact check that. It is true. He choose to completely ignored it, because he could not explain it, and just thought going from all fours to two feet was natural for us! The sequence of events seemed clear enough at that time.Continue Reading
