Epileptic Seizures, Autism, Dementia/Alzheimer’s, Cannabis … And Coca Leaf Tea?

First, A Short Summary:

  1. Researchers are “just discovering” that Cannabis can control Epileptic seizures (Most recent New England Journal of Medicine)

  2. Researchers have not yet looked at Cannabis for use in Dementia/Alzheimer’s, even though seizures are common and are a leading cause of death in Dementia/Alzheimer’s. (Update 6/19/17) – this has just changed – see this on a new German-Israeli study)

  3. Maybe that’s because while Congress has committed some $5.4 billion this fiscal year to cancer research, about $1.2 billion to heart disease and $3 billion to research on HIV/AIDS, research funding for Alzheimer’s is “only” $566 million. Clearly that’s just not enough for researchers (mostly Big Pharma employees) to look into Cannabis as a treatment.

  4. On a related note, California researchers have just shown that a sleeping sickness drug developed in 1916 can reverse Autism in children; unfortunately, the test group was only 10 kids, and 5 of them were given placebos, and the researchers had to go $500,000 into debt to run the study. Evidently kids with Autism aren’t a big enough deal for Congress. Thoughtful of those researchers to care enough to go ahead though.

  5. And to wrap all this up in a neat little package, I figure it would cost well under $100,000 to show that Coca Leaf can not only control Epileptic seizures (as already well-known and demonstrated in 1881), but probably also Dementia/Alzheimer’s seizures – not even a diagnosed disease in 1881.

  6. So, a drug from 1916 is now “discovered” to cure Autism, after decades of high-dollar research into “new” cures. And Cannabis is discovered to cure Epilepsy, after more decades of research into “new” cures. And an 1881 proven cure for both epilepsy and likely for Dementia/Alzheimers, among many other killer diseases, is illegal. Go figure.

The Full Story

For several years researchers have been zeroing in on Cannabis as a source for potent medicines in treating & preventing epileptic and other kinds of seizures. The latest findings, published May 25, 2017 in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that @ 40% of those treated with a CBD-based medicine experienced dramatic improvement in seizure intensity and frequency.

So, let’s put this together with an interesting association between seizures and Dementia/Alzheimer’s. There is plenty of research on this association. Here’s just one example.

“Of the degenerative disorders, Alzheimer’s dementia and amyloid angiopathy are known major causes of seizures. Advanced Alzheimer’s disease has been identified as a risk factor for new-onset generalized tonic-clonic seizures in older adults. It is associated with a 10 percent prevalence of seizures, particularly late in the illness. An increased prevalence of seizures also has been documented with other types of dementia.

So I suppose that it would make sense to investigate whether Cannabis-derived medicines, or perhaps the right strain of Cannabis itself, could be useful in controlling or preventing seizures in Dementia/Alzheimer’s, especially in late-stages of the disease when seizures are a known killer.

I’m sure that researchers are already drafting multi-million dollar grants to study exactly that.

So far, so good. In spite of decades of “Killer Weed” propaganda it looks like scientific minds are finally rising above the lies and finding that, consistent with centuries of well-established knowledge, the natural medicine Cannabis can be helpful in dealing with killer seizures better and with less risk of harm than pharmaceuticals.

But wait! If centuries of medical knowledge regarding the efficacy and safety of Cannabis are now appearing as “new findings” in prestigious medical journals, why not take a look at centuries of medical knowledge regarding the safety and efficacy of Coca Leaf in the same area?

Hmmmm. Could it be that a cup or two of Coca Leaf tea a day might be helpful to people with Dementia/Alzheimer’s – at least in preventing seizures, if not in other ways too. Let’s see. Who would know?

Well, there is a little book entitled “Erythroxylon Coca”, written by By W.S. Searle, MD and published in New York in 1881. (Dr. Searles book is included in its entirety in my ebook “Coca Leaf Papers” available on the sidebar of this post.)

Dr. Searles book is only one of many in which the use of Coca to treat and cure epileptic seizures is covered, but here is what Dr. Searles had to say:

Coca Leaf & Acute Disease”

“The relations of Coca to acute disease are extremely important. As a physician, I would not be without it under any consideration. How thoroughly will every physician, understand me when I say that we are not seldom compelled to stand by and witness the death of patients who are really better of the disease which destroys them than perhaps at any previous time during their sickness. We are unable to support them, and they die from exhaustion of the vital forces.”

“But in Coca we have a powerful agent, whose disturbing influence over physiological processes is so little felt that it neither interferes with recovery from disease by natural course, nor with the action of remedies. And its sustaining power is so marvelous, that I prophesy that by its help we shall hereafter be able to cure many cases of disease which were otherwise hopeless.”

“I am informed by my colleague, Dr. John L. Moffat, of Brooklyn, that he has had very encouraging results from the use of Coca in hay fever in four instances. Of course, its action here is antipathic, or rather, it probably acts simply by its sustaining power, and by its antipathic relations to asthma. But even an efficient palliative, which can do no harm, will be welcomed by those who are annually visited by this plague.”

“It has been affirmed by some English authorities that Coca is valueless in epilepsy. For myself I can report that, in one instance of the fully-fledged disease, occurring in a middle-aged lady, but in whom the paroxysms did not recur oftener than once in six months, an apparent cure has been effected by means of Coca alone. She has now passed eighteen months without a seizure. I have also more striking reports from some of the members of this society, who report very marked results in several severe cases which would yield to no other remedy.”

“It is too early yet, however, to claim for Coca really curative powers in this terrible disease, which has so long been an “opprobrium medicorum”. Still, it is highly probable that the forms of it used by the English physicians in their trials were inert. This is rendered more than likely by the fact that one of the most expert chemists of New York City carefully searched both France and England during the summer of 1880 for good Coca, and was unable to obtain a single valuable specimen.”

“In view of the fact that all the drugs now ranked as anti-epileptic by the allopathic school of medicine are so injurious to the general health, and in view of the results attained by myself and my colleagues, imperfect as yet though they are, I earnestly urge the faithful trial of Coca in epilepsy.”

Well, about 140 years have passed and where are those “faithful trials” of Coca Leaf for Epilepsy – and incidentally for Dementia/Alzheimer’s, Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes, Obesity, and a couple of dozen other killer diseases? Nowhere in sight.

Researchers with Ph.D’s and major institutions behind them are getting tens of millions of dollars to “study” Dementia/Alzheimer’s, but not a peep out of the research establishment about Coca Leaf Tea. And, of course, since I’m not in the club I can’t get a grant, even though I could pretty much prove or disprove the efficacy and safety of Coca leaf for Dementia/Alzheimer’s with a few thousand bucks. But as noted, I don’t have a Ph.D. and I’m not a member of the club, so no institution gives a shit what I say.

Hell, maybe I’ll just do a GoFundMe request for a couple of tickets to Bolivia, grab a hundred kilos or so of fresh Coca Leaf, and come home and start handing out Coca Leaf Tea at a church social or two, and maybe a local nursing home. Think I would get past US Customs/DEA? Might actually be a great idea – let them bust me for trying to bring Coca Leaf in for Dementia/Alzheimer’s patients.

I wonder how many members of the US Congress, who make the laws forbidding Coca Leaf coming into the US, have someone in their family with Dementia/Alzheimer’s. (I’m resisting the obvious snide remark here because while it might be accurate it would also be cruel.)

Anyone have any suggestions?

Don’t Bother Speaking Truth To Power About Curing Alzheimer’s

Truth & Liberty Lie Dead; The Sword Of Justice Is Broken

Power already knows the truth and doesn’t give a shit.

Power has successfully chosen self-interest over truth so often that it has nothing but contempt for those who speak truth. 

Power no longer fears the truth.

No amount of truth, however articulately and passionately spoken, will reach the predatory mind of Power.

Power feeds without remorse on the mortal remains of truth and justice. 

Power is the US Congress, and they are beyond the reach of truth or justice.

The truth is that Alzheimer’s is being caused by something done by those in power. It is not just an accidental emergence of something inexplicable. Justice would be for truth to be told so that all would hear and understand.

What if people with Alzheimer’s are not so much victims of a disease as they are victims of, at a minimum, criminal negligence? I believe that is the truth. I also believe that the truth may be even worse than that.

The reason that this is truth is that there are many, many places in the world where nobody is getting sick and dying from Alzheimer’s. In fact America is one of the few countries where Alzheimer’s is a raging epidemic. Alzheimer’s is not a human condition – it is an affliction, and corrupted power is its cause, because it only exists in countries where corrupted power rules.

Is that a clue?

It’s not that, to use that famous line “The truth? You can’t handle the truth!” Congress can handle the truth just fine. It doesn’t faze them at all. They are not moved one inch. Truth has no meaning.

Nevertheless, I will keep on asking:

What if there is a simple tea, brewed from the leaves of a sacred plant, that extensive and credible evidence suggests could arrest and perhaps even reverse Dementia and Alzheimer’s?

What if that simple tea is so safe and beneficial that it is already in use daily by millions of people – but not in America?

And what if in those countries where this tea is available, according to the World Health Organization, Dementia and Alzheimer’s are not anywhere in the top 50 causes of death? For example, the 2013 World Alzheimer’s Report mentions Bolivia exactly ZERO times, and Peru gets 5 mentions. The US is cited 756 times.

Maybe this points to some kind of truth. Ya think?

So if it might be true that a simple tea could not only prevent but also possibly reverse Dementia and Alzheimer’s, and if it could also prevent or reverse a whole list of other killer diseases in the US – why would the US Congress refuse to act to make this inexpensive, natural medicine legally available?

Any guesses?

The truth is in plain sight.

I have reviewed the effects of Coca Leaf ingested as a Tea on metabolic dysfunction, whole body inflammation, heart failure, muscular and neurological wasting, and decaying brain function based on the large body of 19th century medical literature available on the topic. Many of my blog posts here on panaceachronicles.com have quoted and referenced these physicians and their writings, so I’m not going to make this an academic-style summary.

If you would like to browse the source materials, my ebook “Coca Leaf Papers” contains most of the original information for the following conclusions. The most valuable part of “Coca Leaf Papers” is the bibliographic section of original 17th-19th century citations – whenever possible I have hyperlinked those references to the original texts located in historical databases.

Specifically Why Coca Leaf Tea May Be A Powerful Natural Medicine For Dementia/Alzheimer’s

  1. Coca Leaf Tea appears to affect performance in all kinds learning and memory tasks, although few physicians in the 1800’s went beyond simple direct observations. Several of the physician reports include self-testing under conditions calling for endurance, resistance to fatigue, ability to function under stress, and recovery from illness.

    1. Less demand for pills and “energy drinks”? Refer this to the Un-American Activities committee!

  2. Coca Leaf Tea does appear to facilitate learning in tasks in which information is presented passively; such as listening and reading, but not in situations where new information is presented systematically such as in studying or memorizing.

    1. Coca Leaf tea was widely seen to reduce cognitive decline, but then making sure that informed older people can’t vote is in the best interests of the US Congress, so why would they want to upset their apple cart?

  3. 19th Century physicians also noted that Coca Leaf Tea facilitates performance in tasks involving alertness to some degree, and many physicians wrote of improved overall reaction to stimulation.

    1. Alert older people! Yikes! Horrors!

  4. Coca Leaf Tea was frequently noted to improve mood and reduce anxiety.

    1. Keeping the people anxious and surly is part of the program.

  5. Coca Leaf Tea was frequently noted to help patients with addiction issues involving everything from Opium to Chloral Hydrate to Cocaine.

    1. My guess is that it would also help reduce the Meth and Opiates epidemics but hey, who gives a shit? Not the US Congress, for sure. Felons can’t vote, and although dead people can and do vote, fresh ones are harder to manipulate.

  6. A large improvement in physical performance in fatigued subjects under stressful conditions was noted frequently.

    1. Fewer bone fractures from falling? That’s not gonna happen. It’s almost impossible to get out of bed in a nursing home and go vote, so Congress likes things just the way they are.

It appears that Coca Leaf Tea’s action on energy levels, mood, digestion, muscle and nerve resiliency, and mental concentration strongly suggest that it would be helpful in reducing and possibly reversing the rate of decline in these functions, and the millions of deaths associated with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

But the truth? The US Congress doesn’t care. That part is up to you – you know, the caring part.

And by the way, if you don’t want to pay my $3.99 asking price to read the evidence in my 600+ page ebook “Coca Leaf Papers”, then just email me and ask for a free copy. I want to share this information, and I’m not going to get rich off of ebook sales anytime soon anyway, so I’ll be happy to shoot you a copy.

What I want is for you to care enough to look at the evidence.

Do You Know someone Who Needs Help With English?

For about a year I’ve been working with a French company teaching spoken English to professionals from around the world. My students are people who are already successful in their careers, and who read and understand English just fine, but who still struggle to communicate effectively in spoken English.

I have developed a rather effective approach to teaching spoken English that helps my students progress rapidly toward their goal of being able to speak spontaneously using good grammar and syntax and a solid vocabulary – especially using words and terms from their field and pronouncing them correctly.

My “trade secret” is that I am a member of several dozen forums worldwide that are dedicated to the exchange of knowledge among people in specific professions. I use these internet resources to extract relevant ideas, topics, questions and answers, and problems to be solved for discussion with my students. In this way, each of my students is able to practice spontaneous spoken English while focusing on ideas from their own field of interest. I use both Skype and Hangout for giving lessons by webcam.

One great example of an internet resource that I find very useful, in case you’re curious, is www.quora.com which is a very large site for people interested in any area of Computer Sciences. I have had several students in Computer Science whose native languages ranged from Chinese and Russian to Portuguese and Hindi. Using resources from Quora.com gives my students an opportunity to challenge themselves and express their ideas using English-language vocabulary and syntax from their own field of interest.

I also do a lot of work with my students helping them to improve their English-language writing skills, and have worked as an editor on their user manuals, presentations, reports, proposals, dissertations, and technical papers.

I am posting this here because it occurs to me that there may be those among my LinkedIn, FaceBook and Twitter networks who know a friend, colleague or business associate who could benefit from improving their spoken and written English skills. If you know someone in this situation, please refer them to my tutoring website that is located here.

Thank you!

Embrace Love

There is so much to hate and fear in today’s world that the hideous aspects of human nature seem to be on a steady march to dominate our lives, but this has probably always been so. When the world of each person was limited to what they could experience directly, within reach of where they lived and worked, it was a very small world compared to the global community that most of us now inhabit. But even in the world of a small town, or even in the isolated world of a home far out on the prairies or deep in a forest or high among the mountains, all of the elements of hatred, cruelty, fear, greed, brutality, and other manifestations of the dark side were always present, and probably always seemed unstoppable.

Because of the global reach of our perceptions today, the presence of evil appears to be multiplied to the point where it can be overwhelming. There is just so much suffering and pain caused by so many truly evil people – how is it possible for the good, the beautiful, and the loving side of life to survive?

Before the internet, and thus before it was possible to see into every corner of the world and know that evil is everywhere, Gandhi saw into every such place through his enlightened vision, and among the many things he communicated to those of us who despair was:

“If we take a total view, we shall see that it is not wickedness but goodness which rules the world. The wicked can prevail only when they number multitudes, but goodness will rule when embodied to perfection even in one person. Nonviolence has been described as so powerful that all forces of violence subside in its presence. Under its influence, even beasts forget their nature. Even one good person can change the world.”

“Where wickedness prevails, there is disorder in every field of life, but where goodness rules, order prevails and people are happy. They are happy not in the sense that their material needs are satisfied, but in the sense that they lead virtuous and contented lives. As for material possessions, some men have fortunes in rupees and yet have a distracted life. That is no sign of being happy.”

When I find myself becoming overwhelmed by the ignorant, brute, seemingly unstoppable forces of evil in this world I turn to one image and, for me, this image confirms that beauty and love will always prevail, long after those who are evil incarnate have turned to dust. This image is, for me, proof that love and beauty survive and will, in the end, inherit the earth. I offer you this image in the hope that you too will take it as proof that love survives when those who manifest evil have long vanished.

US Congress Killing Millions Of Americans

Let’s Have Some Coca Tea – Don’t These leaves & Flowers Look Yummy?

A new study released by Harvard Medical School makes it very clear that drinking 1-5 cups of coffee a day can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease, neurological disease, cancer and diabetes regardless of what else you eat or drink, how much you do or don’t exercise, and whether or not you have sex with too many risky partners. (That’s risky, not frisky, although frisky is good.)

So, coffee is good for you. It can help keep you from dying from the most common killer diseases. And its legal. Well, whoop de do!

So I’m asking myself – hey, what about Coca Leaf tea? Just as drinking a cup of coffee isn’t the same thing as gobbling down straight caffeine pills, drinking Coca Leaf tea isn’t at all like snorting Cocaine – not even close. You can’t drink enough Coca leaf tea to get even a mild buzz, but the list of diseases that it can prevent is at least as long as the list of diseases that scientists are just “discovering” coffee can prevent.

You might reasonably ask – how do you know that Coca Leaf tea is such a great medicine? And I would say – have you read this blog? If you are a first-time visitor, let me invite you to enter virtually any disease or symptom in the search box in the right-hand column of this blog and then read the evidence. I’ve blogged on how Coca Leaf tea can prevent, treat and heal most of these diseases. Search for: Congestive heart failure. Diabetes. Chronic fatigue syndrome. Obesity. IBS. Then enter a few more search terms like respiratory, neurological, cardiac, kidney, gut, etc. (You could also buy the 600 page ebook “Coca Leaf Papers” but that’s a whole lot of reading.)

Now to the title of this blog post. Why is the US Congress directly responsible for the suffering and death of millions of Americans? Because they are so totally owned by Pig Pharma that they don’t have the courage to pass simple legislation allowing Americans full access to pure, natural Coca Leaf for making a few life-saving cups of tea a day.

So millions – actually tens of millions of Americans suffer and die each year from diseases that those few cups of Coca Leaf tea a day could prevent, and even reverse in many cases of those who already have them.

But what the hell – at least we have coffee. Thank you US Congress. You’re really the bomb.

If I Were Krazy Kim – Part Four

WhooHoo – feelin’ the breeze in my face

I would take a psychotic’s pleasure in telling my victims exactly what I was going to do to them, knowing that they would ignore me and proceed blindly to their doom. (So let’s think about this – why is this man almost always pictured laughing?)

I have written previously about the likelihood that Kim is showing off his missiles as a sleight of hand ploy, and speculated that another component of this ploy might be delivering his nukes in the holds of rusty old cargo ships.

However, the latest round of US posturing and NK threats raises another possibility in my mind.

If I were Krazy Kim I would have long ago smuggled at least one nuke into South Korea and placed it where it could do maximum damage to both South Korea and the US with minimum chance of being detected before I triggered it.

That would mean that I would not try to conceal my nuke in or near Seoul, which is no doubt heavily instrumented to detect such a concealed weapon. Besides, Seoul is exactly where the South Koreans and the US are focused on the North Korean threat – for a lot of very good reasons.

Busan – All Lit Up

Therefore, as Krazy Kim, I would look around for another location for my nuke, and I would probably be delighted when Busan occurred to me. It is a major city, of course, but it is also a major port for US warships like the nuclear submarine Michigan that the US is currently flaunting dockside in Busan.

It is also a major location for US military facilities, conveniently located outside of the range of artillery and short-range missiles that everybody knows are targeted on Seoul.

Best of all, if I were Krazy Kim, Busan is in a natural bowl, which would focus and concentrate the damage done by a nuke going off downtown, near the port, where of course there is all kinds of background radiation already because of US and South Korean military activity.

And naturally, I would not have smuggled in a ready-to-go nuke, but I would have been smuggling in tiny bits over the course of years, assembling it in the most secure place I could find. And I’ll bet that there is no end to the number of such places in Busan.

USS Michigan Docks In Busan

So when Krazy Kim says that he is going to send the USS Michigan to the bottom of the sea as a mass of molten metal, instead of laughing my ass off at another of his outrageous claims, if I were the South Koreans and the US Military I would start looking very, very carefully at every square meter of the Busan area, above and below ground and underwater in the harbor as well.

Because a nuke would certainly do the job  of making a nuclear sub into little drops of molten metal.

That’s what I would do. But hey, I’m just a geriatric lunatic with a computer sitting in rural Texas – which incidentally is a long, long way from Busan. I think I’ll go have a beer and watch my dogs hunt squirrels. Those squirrels just sit in the trees and laugh at my dogs – until they slip and fall.

Pearl Harbor 2017? Who coulda knowed?

Just passing by. Nothing to see – move along.

“Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it.” (George Santayana)

In this case the lesson that is being missed is that if you push a nation led by fanatics far enough into a corner, while at the same time deluding yourself that there is nothing that they can do about it because of your superior strength and their obvious weakness, then there will be nasty consequences.

In the late 1930’s Japan launched a military invasion of China, and the United States responded to this growing threat by temporarily halting negotiations with Japanese diplomats, instituting a full embargo on exports to Japan, including an embargo on oil designed to cripple the Japanese navy, freezing Japanese assets in U.S. banks, and sending “humanitarian” supplies into China.

Now let’s see what the US State Department’s own historical website says happened next.

“Faced with serious shortages as a result of the embargo, unable to retreat, and convinced that the U.S. officials opposed further negotiations, Japan’s leaders came to the conclusion that they had to act swiftly.

For their part, U.S. leaders had not given up on a negotiated settlement, and also doubted that Japan had the military strength to attack the U.S. territory.

Therefore, they were stunned when the unthinkable happened and Japanese planes bombed the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.” 

Right now the US military and politicians also believe that the US has overwhelming strength, and the fact that the US has been able to destroy North Korean missiles in the boost phase with – what – microwave beams? software hacks? – is leading to the same kind of pre-Pearl Harbor thinking.

The North Koreans might bluster but they really don’t have the capability to deliver a nuclear strike.

However, as I’ve asked elsewhere in this blog, who says that North Korea has to deliver its nukes by missile?

“Stunned” might be an inadequate word to describe US feelings if North Korea was backed too far into a corner and Tokyo and Seoul were vaporized by nukes going off in the hold of a rusty NK freighter passing offshore. Ditto LA. And of course, those tens of millions of vanished souls would be WAY beyond stunned. And also of course, our military and politicians would react the same as they did in 1941. “Who coulda knowed?”
