THERE WAS A TIME WHEN OLDER MEANT WISER…
Our Immune System detractors, also known as pathogens, bacteria – candida overgrowth, parasites [to name a few] are making our decisions for us.Think about this: Ever find yourself eating something you swore you would never touch again? Then falling asleep on the couch and waking up an hour or more later, more mentally glazed over than a donut from Krispy Kreme. Sugar is a food, food – ingredient that even mainstream medicine and society agrees is a major culprit in poor health. Caffeine on the other hand is a much more acceptable health detractor. We are a caffeine and sugar addicted society, period end of story. However, for many of us caffeine is the only thing that keeps us able to keep going, until the going stops. Mainstream health professionals, like many other people, deeply rely on caffeine to keep up very hectic schedules. Caffeine is part of our culture and pretty much condoned by the medical world. In essence, most doctors are not going to tell patients to get off the same coffee wagon that they are hitched up to. Ouch!
AS YOUNG, OR AS OLD AS WE FEEL?
I personally understand what premature aging feels like. I say that for a number of reasons. One is because I do not drink coffee, or use other stimulants. After many years of clinical experience with clients, family and friends, I have seen, felt and heard the symptoms of premature aging. One description of premature aging would be feeling and depending on caffeine to be fully functional. Premature aging, depending on ones expectations of health and well being, may also be defined as an immune system that is way below par. Today a compromised immune system is common for people of all ages. Yes, even in children. Why do I say that? First off, being tired all the time is not a healthy normal, but it has become accepted as normal. Needing some kind of lift every day, and I mean every day, more than once a day, is not unusual for a majority of our population. It is normal. This is one of the major reason why there are so many places to get a caffeinated beverage.
A former long time resident of NYC, there is a coffee, green tea latte joint every few blocks. In the suburbs of Southern California there is a Starbuck’s, or other caffeine chain, in house, in many supermarkets. People do not just want coffee, they NEED it. Is that premature aging – poor health? Well, caffeine is such a part of our culture that this premise may seem like a real stretch. If you and most everyone you know ingests some kind of caffeine to be functional, then what is the problem? So, is this premature aging? Well, years and decades of this need for speed is depleting. It gives people energy they really do not have. Caffeine puts enormous pressure on our adrenals, kidneys, heart, the entire body. In Traditional Asian Medicine this consumption of caffeine is known to lessen our most coveted Kidney Jing, our seat of strength.
WHAT GOES UP GOTTA COME DOWN, DOWN, DOWN
On the other side if you drink wine or some other alcoholic beverage to calm down, you are not alone either. Is this premature aging? Well, ain’t goin’ anywhere good. If a person needs caffeine of any kind to rev up and wine, weed or pharmaceutical to calm down, then I believe the answer is Yes! The next stop on this “train” to nowhere good will probably be prescription drugs, or worse. Try taking caffeine, sugar, alcohol or nicotine away from a person and you will initially see a pretty ugly side of them.
FULLY BAKED ON PHARMACEUTICALS
Our weak immune systems are making our decisions for us. As hard as this may be to hear, I am sure it is true. Medications of all kinds exist to hide, numb,or momentarily give us what we are lacking. This is often the ability to be alert, or the ability to power it all down. So, when we use caffeine as a source for being awake and energetic that is a choice that is not always being made from a place of power. It is being made from a place of desperation. From a place and entity that operates by taking what is truly not theirs to live. Parasites.
POLITICAL AND MEDIA PARASITES
If you sit down to watch TV one night and look up only to realize that more time has gone by then you were intending to spend, you are not alone. Same with the internet. Too much media exposure, like ice cream, can give a person brain freeze. The addiction to news keeps many of us tuned into an election of mud slinging. Mud slinging that has been encouraged and maybe even orchestrated by the media. The media is a prime example of what parasites do best, making something out of “nothing”. A nothing that originally belonged to someone else. So, if your life feels highjacked by things that we are constantly being told truly matter, and you are angry at people you do not personally know, you’ve been highjacked.
USA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES 2016: CLINTON VS TRUMP: BOTH ARE OVER 65 YEARS OF AGE. OLDER BUT WISER IS SOMETHING THAT THESE TWO REALLY BRING INTO QUESTION, ESPECIALLY DONALD TRUMP
Climate Change, poverty and social violence are a few of the issues that deeply matter today. They are much deeper than these presidential candidates and the ridiculous amount of coverage they receive. Addiction to news makes it way easier to focus on the screwed -up – ness of people running for office. Those”other people”. Easier than facing our personal health,environmental, and social concerns. How we react to what the media presents is all that really matters. Being angry when hearing sound bites and snippets of news makes us all puppets of the media.
CLINTON IS AS FUNNY AS MARGARET THATCHER WAS. THANK GOD FOR TRUMP…
Remember, if you live in the USA vote on November 28th, just like Donald told us to do. Hello, will someone tell Donald Trump the correct date. It won’t be me. According to some polls, all of them, Donald may need all the help he can get. Then again, maybe not.
Strategically, Donald Trump [aka Donald Drumpf] is already giving his non- concession / concession speech. Someone has taken something from him that he never really had in the first place. This whole crazy presidential cycle is dripping in bat shit, and we all know what that is full of…
EARTH TO CLINTON’S: THIS IS AN ELECTION, NOT A CORONATION
On the Clinton side exists a highly obnoxious idea of entitlement: Eight years of Bill, then eight years of Hill. The Clinton’s, along with corporate power brokers – Super Pak’s, etcetera, all seem to think they deserve something that does not inherently belong to then. Clinton and Trump have way more in common than either of them, or any of their followers seem to realize.
Aristotle said: “every country gets the government it deserves”. Uh Oh! Their ages combined Clinton and Trump split approximately 140 years on this planet. With age comes wisdom? Not so much here.
