Magnesium: One of the Most Important Nutrients for Heart Health

Without magnesium the heart muscle cannot hold potassium, resulting in palpitations and increased heart attack risk.

Take both magnesium and potassium citrate.

The best form of magnesium and potassium for the heart (but expensive) is magnesium and potassium orotate, but potassium and magnesium citrate will work as well.

(Take no supplement that contains artificial sweeteners in any form (Aspartame, NutraSweet)).

If you additionally take bromelain 500 mg (daily) your heart will be very happy.

Magnesium — One of the Most Important Nutrients for Heart Health:

Story at-a-glance

  • Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body and is involved in more than 600 different biochemical reactions. Research suggests even subclinical deficiency can jeopardize your heart health
  • A lack of magnesium will impede your cellular metabolic function and deteriorate mitochondrial function, and magnesium deficiency has been identified as the greatest predictor of heart disease
  • Magnesium is also important for chromosome folding, which allows cells to divide, multiply and regenerate to make up for lost or damaged cells
  • Check your RBC magnesium level and track signs and symptoms of magnesium insufficiency to determine how much magnesium you need. Low potassium and calcium are also common laboratory signs indicating magnesium deficiency
  • To optimize your magnesium level, eat magnesium-rich foods and/or take a magnesium supplement. Taking Epsom salt baths is another effective way to boost your magnesium level

By Dr. Mercola

Magnesium deficiency is extremely common, and recent research shows even subclinical deficiency can jeopardize your heart health. Magnesium is also important for brain health, detoxification, cellular health and function, and the optimization of your mitochondria. In short, magnesium has enormous potential to influence your health and general well-being, especially the prevention of heart disease and cancer, but also for general energy and athletic performance.

More research confirms: There is definitely a link between autism and mercury

Flashback:

How Mercury Causes Brain Neuron Degeneration – University Of Calgary (Video):

****

More research confirms: There is definitely a link between autism and mercury:

As some people continue to deny that there is a link between autism spectrum disorder and mercury, a pair of new studies have now been added to the growing pile of evidence illustrating just how wrong they are.

The research involved meta-analysis of studies investigating the link between mercury and autism spectrum disorder that were carried out over the past 12 years. This type of study is highly advantageous as it allows researchers to consolidate vast piles of research, which can often be complex and even conflicting.

The first meta-analysis, which was carried out by researchers from the Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences in Iran, was focused specifically on mercury. The second one, which was conducted by Tehran University of Medical Sciences researchers, looked at mercury as well as other heavy metals like lead. In both cases, cutting-edge statistical techniques were used to yield unbiased results.

New questions emerge about cell phone radiofrequencies causing brain damage, especially in children

New questions emerge about cell phone radiofrequencies causing brain damage, especially in children:

Media outlets across the state have been reporting on a warning issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) that long-term and extensive use of cellular phones could be detrimental to your health. These phones emit radiofrequency energy when sending and receiving signals to and from cell towers, and some experts have warned that these frequencies could cause brain damage, particularly in children and adolescents.

The CDPH has warned that over 95 percent of Americans now use mobile phones on a daily basis, and the majority of children are given their own cell phones by the age of 10.

“Children’s brains develop through the teenage years and may be more affected by cellphone use,” said Dr. Karen Smith, the state’s public health officer. “Parents should consider reducing the time their children use cellphones and encourage them to turn the devices off at night.” (Related: Discover the latest technological devices at Glitch.news.)

Brain damage in newborns dropped dramatically after non-stick cookware chemicals were banned

Brain damage in newborns dropped dramatically after non-stick cookware chemicals were banned:

Great food is one that’s made naturally from preparation to serving, and it has been a been a key component on the reduction of babies born with low weight and brain damage, based on a study published by the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine.

The report, published in the International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, states that eliminating chemicals that were used to make non-stick coating, like Teflon, have stymied more than 118,000 low-weight births as well as brain damage related to it. This finding was derived after a thorough examination of blood samples from women who had just given birth as part of a national health study.

New brain study reveals how music can change the structure of children’s brains, enhancing emotional and intellectual development, boosting decision-making network

Learn/study while listening to Mozart (It has been proven that the best result can be achieved with Mozart.) recorded in 432 Hz. (Low volume!)

(You will absolutely NOT get the same amazing effects and results by listening to the crap that can be found on YouTube, where they took Mozart’s pieces, slowed them down and changed pitch to 432 Hz.

All instruments really need to be tuned to 432 Hz before recording!!!).

New brain study reveals how music can change the structure of children’s brains, enhancing emotional and intellectual development, boosting decision-making network:

Two new studies from the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California have revealed that even just two years of music instruction has multiple benefits.

Music training can alter both the structure of the brain’s white matter, which transfers signals through the brain, and gray matter, which has most of the brain’s neurons that are active in processing information. It also improves brain network engagements that optimize decision-making abilities and the capacity to focus attention.

These findings have been talked about in studies that have been recently published in scientific journals, including one in the journal Cerebral Cortex. They are the result of an ongoing longitudinal study that started in 2012, when the institute – which is based at the USC Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences – partnered with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) to analyze the effects of music instruction on children’s emotional, cognitive, and social development.

Ginkgo Biloba as useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as the blockbuster drug Donepezil

Ginkgo boosts brain function.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba is considered a powerhouse in the herbal medicine pharmacopoeia, and its implications for brain health are equally potent. Ginkgo has demonstrated at least 50 distinct health benefits, and its medicinal value is documented in the treatment of more than 100 different diseases.

There are numerous studies on Ginkgo’s ability to stimulate levels of a critical brain protein called BDNF: brain-derived neurotrophic factor. This protein affects healing in damaged regions of the brain and is essential in the regulation, growth and survival of brain cells, making it especially important for long-term memory.

Ginkgo is so effective that a 2006 paper published in the European Journal of Neurology found it to be as useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as the blockbuster drug, Donepezil.

Recently, a new mechanism behind Ginkgo Biloba’s brain healing properties came to light with the publication of an article in Cell and Molecular Neurobiology. Researchers determined that Ginkgo is effective, in part, due to its ability to modulate neural stem cells (NSC’s) into the type of cell that is necessary in the specific region of the brain where the BDNF proteins are active.

NSC’s are multipotent cells; they have the amazing ability to shapeshift into any of the many different phenotypes of cells that make up the brain. Ginkgo stimulates the growth of the right cell phenotype for the affected region of the brain, giving our brain exactly what’s needed, where it’s needed. Now that’s intelligent medicine!

Turmeric For Brain Regeneration

Turmeric

You probably know at least one person who raves about the health benefits of turmeric. This deep, orange root has been used as a panacea for everything from soothing joint pain and calming inflammation, to lowering the risk of heart disease. And our awareness of the benefits of this ancient medicinal herb continues to grow.

Turmeric is an example of a remyelinating compound, which denotes a substance with proven nerve-regenerative effects.

Remyelinating compounds work to repair the protective sheath around the nerve bundle known as myelin, an area often damaged in autoimmune and vaccine-induced disorders. Research shows that even small doses of these restorative substances can produce significant nerve regeneration.

The Western model of pharmaceutical intervention has created a culture that seeks to identify and isolate the “active ingredient” of an organic substance. What this fails to account for is that organic compounds often work in concert: isolates by themselves may lack a critical key that another plant element provides.

Curcumin is the isolated active ingredient in turmeric, however, new research shows that another element found in turmeric has magical properties of its own.

In an exciting study published in the journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy, researchers found that a little-known component within turmeric, Ar-tumerone, may make “a promising candidate to support regeneration in neurologic disease.”

The study found that when brain cells were exposed to ar-tumerone, neural stem cells increased in number and complexity, indicating a healing effect was taking place. This effect was replicated in rats, who when exposed to ar-tumerone saw increased neural stem cell production and the generation of healthy new brain cells.

Babies feel touch in their DNA: Infants who were held more have a different molecular profile than children who had a lack of contact

Babies feel touch in their DNA: Infants who were held more have a different molecular profile than children who had a lack of contact:

Physical contact between babies and their caregivers doesn’t just foster emotional bonds — it also affects infants on a molecular level. This was the conclusion that researchers from the University of British Columbia and BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute came to in their landmark study. Though far from just impacting children in their infancy, physical contact (or lack thereof) elicit results that remain detectable well into childhood.

For the purposes of their study, the researchers recruited the parents of 94 healthy, five-week-old children. The parents were asked to keep journals of their children’s behavior (things such as crying, feeding, and sleeping), as well as the frequency amount of bodily contact they shared. By the time the children were four-and-a-half years old, the researchers swabbed the inside of their cheeks to attain DNA samples.

Canola oil linked to worsened memory and learning ability in Alzheimer’s

Canola oil linked to worsened memory and learning ability in Alzheimer’s:

Canola oil is one of the most widely consumed vegetable oils in the world, yet surprisingly little is known about its effects on health. Now, a new study published online December 7 in the journal Scientific Reports by researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) associates the consumption of canola oil in the diet with worsened memory, worsened learning ability and weight gain in mice which model Alzheimer’s disease. The study is the first to suggest that canola oil is more harmful than healthful for the brain.

“Canola oil is appealing because it is less expensive than other vegetable oils, and it is advertised as being healthy,” explained Domenico Praticò, MD, Professor in the Departments of Pharmacology and Microbiology and Director of the Alzheimer’s Center at LKSOM, as well as senior investigator on the study. “Very few studies, however, have examined that claim, especially in terms of the brain.”

This is CIA MKULTRA level stuff but hey what could go wrong with the US military’s research division DARPA controlling your emotions? Human Testing Begins: Brain Implants To ‘Change Moods Controlled By AI’

Brain implants to ‘change moods controlled by AI’ begin HUMAN TESTS:

SCIENTISTS have begun human testing on electronic brain implants designed to change peoples moods controlled by computers.

Devices plugged into people’s skulls are being developed by boffins funded by the US military’s research division DARPA.These implants will use electronic pulses to alter the chemicals in people’s brains in a process called “deep brain stimulation”.

This will then change people’s moods and is believed to be able to treat mental illness and provide therapy.

Artificial intelligence in implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send – described by scientists as a “window on the brain”.

Neuroscientists Discover a Song That Reduces Anxiety by 65 Percent (Listen)

Hmmm. (For me personally the music is not testing good.)

*****

Neuroscientists Discover a Song That Reduces Anxiety by 65 Percent (Listen):

(TMU) Anxiety — that feeling of dread, fear, worry and panic — is certainly nothing new. Hippocrates wrote about it in the fourth century BCE. As did Søren Kierkegaard in the 1860s. And Sigmund Freud addressed the disorder in 1926.

However, jump to the present and we’re seeing a significant uptick — especially with youth.

Pharmaceutical drugs tend to be the classic treatment for treating anxiety (as well as the biggest money maker). Cognitive therapy is a common approach as well. Those with a holistic bent often turn to meditation, yoga, massage and other relaxation techniques. Music therapy has also been used with some success. But now neuroscientists in the U.K. have zeroed in on a single song that results in a dramatic 65 percent reduction in overall anxiety…

Scientists zapped people’s brains with magnetic pulses and it changed their taste in music

Scientists zapped people’s brains with magnetic pulses and it changed their taste in music:

Participants’ enjoyment of music, and the amount they were willing to spend on it, were both affected by stimulation of neural circuits

Stimulating someone’s brain with magnetic pulses is enough to change their taste in music, according to new research.

Using a non-invasive technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation, Scientists managed to change the enjoyment of music felt by their subjects.

Not only did the treatment alter the way participants rated music, it even affected the amount of money they were willing to spend on it.

Facebook Founder Warns “God Only Knows What It’s Doing To Kids’ Brains”

Facebook Founder Warns “God Only Knows What It’s Doing To Kids’ Brains”:

38-year-old founding president of Facebook, Sean Parker, was uncharacteristically frank about his creation in an interview with Axios. So much so in fact that he concluded, Mark Zuckerberg will probably block his account after reading this.

Confirming every ‘big brother’ conspiracy there is about the social media giant, Parker explained how social networks purposely hook users and potentially hurt our brains

“When Facebook was getting going, I had these people who would come up to me and they would say, ‘I’m not on social media.’ And I would say, ‘OK. You know, you will be.’ And then they would say, ‘No, no, no. I value my real-life interactions. I value the moment. I value presence. I value intimacy.’ And I would say, … ‘We’ll get you eventually.'”

“I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and … it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other … It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”

“The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, … was all about: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'”

“And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that’s going to get you to contribute more content, and that’s going to get you … more likes and comments.”

It’s a social-validation feedback loop … exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.

Daily Mail: Brain chips that allow you to delete memories and fight disease will create a new breed of SUPERHUMANS in 15 years

Brain chips that allow you to delete memories and fight disease will create a new breed of SUPERHUMANS in 15 years:

  • Bryan Johnson’s firm, Kernel, is working on a microchip to be implanted in brain
  • He says the chips will allow people to buy and delete memories as they wish
  • Rather than being reserved for the rich, Mr Johnson says the chips will be ‘democratised, like smartphones’ 

Implanting a microchip into your brain to unlock its full potential may sound like the plot from the latest science fiction blockbuster.

But the futuristic technology could become a reality within 15 years, according to Bryan Johnson, an expert working on such a device.

The chips will allow people to buy and delete memories, and will soon be as popular as smartphones, Mr Johnson claims.

Neuroscientist Prof. Dr. Dr. Gertraud Teuchert-Noodt Warns Of The Detrimental Effects Digital Media Have On Our Brain – “A Cyberattack On The Nerve Nets Of The Brain”

She warns especially on the negative effects that the digital media have on the brains of our children, where they are causing irreversible damage!

(And TPTB know all about this!)

Prof. Dr. Dr. Gertraud Teuchert-Noodt leitete den Bereich Neuroanatomie/Humanbiologie an der Universität Bielefeld, Fakultät für Biologie. Spezielle Forschungsgebiete: unter anderem quantitative Immunhistochemie von Neurotransmittern und neuronale Netzwerke in der Entwicklung psycho-kognitiver Hirnfunktionen. In ihren Vorträgen setzt sie sich kritisch mit der Wirkung digitaler Medien auf das Gehirn auseinander, so Anfang Mai an der Technischen Universität Darmstadt oder im Juni 2016 bei einer Veranstaltung des Netzwerks culture2business im Juni 2016. Titel des Vortrags: „Cyberangriff auf unser Gehirn? Strategien für einen gesunden Umgang mit digitalen Medien in Unternehmen.“ – Quelle: http://www.ksta.de/24345186

Digitale Medien: die große Gefahr für unser Gehirn?:

„Digitale Medien erfüllen inzwischen einen fundamentalen Traum der Menschheit: Die Beherrschung von Zeit und Raum. Doch das birgt gleichzeitig ein große Gefahr in sich“, sagt Hirnforscherin Professor Dr. Dr. Gertraud Teuchert-Noodt von der Universität Bielefeld. Behalten Medien-User nicht die Oberhand über ihr Tun und Planen, erliegen sie unmerklich einer Art Cyberattacke auf die Netzwerke ihres Gehirns. 

Attackiert würden speziell diejenigen Subsysteme, die für die Gedächtnisbildung und für die kognitiven Leistungen verantwortlich sind. Das könne Sucht, Burnout oder Depressionen auslösen. Eine neue Herausforderung sowohl im Studium, als auch in der Arbeitswelt werde es sein, nicht zuzulassen, dass die Medien uns in ihre Dienste stellen. Es sei deshalb nützlich, mehr über jene Nervennetze im Gehirn zu wissen, die uns stark dafür machen. Anfang Mai referierte die Hirnforscherin an der Technischen Universität Darmstadt zum Thema „Wohin führt die digitale Revolution?“. „Wenn wir den Karren so weiter laufen lassen, wird das eine ganze Generation von digitalisierten Kindern in die Steinzeit zurückwerfen“, warnt Teuchert-Noodt.

visionsblog.info: Frau Professor Teuchert-Noodt,  Sie sprechen von der ,Cyberattacke auf die Nervennetze des Gehirns´. Was ist damit gemeint, was kann/muss sich der Laie darunter vorstellen?
Prof. Getraud Teuchert-Noodt: Es ist was es ist: egal, ob eine Cyberattacke mittelbar auf die für spezifische Infrastrukturen wichtigen Computernetzwerke von digital hochgerüsteten Einrichtungen oder unmittelbar auf spezifische Nervennetze des Gehirns gerichtet ist, beides hat eine entsprechende Durchschlagskraft. Also, ebenso wie Hacker die Stromversorgung eines Krankenhauses lahm legen können, können Medien User in ihrem eigenen Gehirn die Versorgungszentrale für die gesamte Informationsverarbeitung auf psycho-kognitiver Ebene außer Kraft setzen und eine emotionale/geistige Erschöpfung  herbeizuführen. Vielleicht ist ein Hirn-Crash sogar noch schlimmer. Denn die neurochemisch und hirnrhythmisch gesteuerten Funktionen in den entsprechenden höchsten Hirnarealen – dem Limbisch-präfrontalen System –  tun sich mit einer Erholung von einer digital induzierten Attacke sehr schwer, zumal diese mit einer sich unmerklich einschleichenden Symptomatik einhergeht.
