Electromagnetic Pollution

Within the last 30-50 years the earth has been become flooded with electromagnetic frequencies from cell phone use, Wi-Fi signals, microwaves, power lines, cell phone towers, computers, tablets, smart meters and many more.  It is logical to assume that with all of these signals that there has been zero affect on humans?  Could these be ones of the causes for why people suffer from migraines and headaches?  These countless signals pass right through our bodies and brains.  Many researchers and doctors are now supporting the theory that electromagnetic pollution is becoming a major source of disease for people, especially those who are chronically and critically ill.

A major decline was noticed in recent times concerning the efficacy of natural treatments and EMF’s were identified to be one of the major causes in the effectiveness of things that worked before but now are not working well.

“I personally suspect that the exposure to electromagnetic fields in the home and the microwaves from cell phone radiation are driving the virulence of many of the microbes that are naturally in us, and makes them aggressive and illness producing.”— Dr. Klinghardt

He mentions that our DNA vibrates within the frequency of billions of hertz.  Electromagnetic frequencies also vibrate in this same rates.  This is supported by science and in his work, he mentions that genetic changes can occur in people with EMF’s as a trigger autism in children as old as eight years old.  When exposed to cell phones excessively and Smart Meters on the side of houses, these genetic abnormalities occur.

Is there a link between electromagnetic pollution, headaches and migraines?  After watching this presentation years ago, I had a patient that presented with chronic tension headaches for over 2 years.  The overall severity was rated by her at 8/10.  Over one month of working with her and through Nutrition Response Testing, whole food supplementation, detoxification, and most importantly working on the emotions that were behind these headaches, they significantly diminished.  However, they wouldn’t completely go away.  This bothered me and since I want all my patients to heal I went searching for more answers and found info on EMF pollution.  I asked her where she kept her cell phone when sleep and she told that she kept her phone under her pillow.  After removing the cell phone from her room at night, the headaches got even better.

What are some powerful things you can do to shield yourself from EMF’s?

  1. Turn your cell phone off or keep it at least 10-15 feet away from you at night.  Small add ons can be put onto the cell phone which converts radiation into energy the body better recognizes.   Buy an old fashion clock to use for an alarm clock.
  2. Put your WIFI on a timer that shuts it off during the hours when you are sleeping and turns back on when you awake.    They can be purchased for 5-10 dollars.
  3. Put aluminum shielding on the inside wall of your home where your Smart meter is.  A special paint also exists that can help as well called Y Shield.  It is very expensive, but for some it can mean the difference between suffering and relief.
  4. Get rid of Bluetooth technology and use a hands free cord plug in with speakers and microphone to make phone calls.  This will at least keep the phone from being right next to your head.
  5. Turn all cordless phones off, especially if they are in your bedroom, next to your bed.
  6. Lastly, as one increases their level of consciousness through letting go of emotions that are major triggers for headaches and migraines, physical substances and EMF’s will begin to have less of an impact on the body.

NOTICE OF LYRANARA.ME: The major influence on our body has the electrosmog pollution created by the over 45000 satellites communicating with the Earth stations, all using frequencies around 27 KHz.  Same frequencies are needed by our body as the cellular switch of glucose molecules, controlling thus the cellular nutrients input and the cellular “wastes” damp. Mobile phones and Wi-Fi devices amplify the 27 KHz effect, disturbing even more the cellular metabolism, therefore most of the degenerative diseases are today on the raise: cancer, diabetes, dementia.

You can shield yourself only with Vita Chips, created specifically to protect astronauts in the space and in space shuttles. You must carry the vita chips on your body, at least 4 ore preferable 8 health Vita Chips. Vita chip can “absorb and neutralise” the 27 KHz frequencies and turn these down into healing vibrations.

Accumulation of a product of cell metabolism found to be linked with kidney tumor growth

Researchers funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) have shown that when the metabolite fumarate accumulates in a hereditary form of renal cancer it leads to an epigenetic reprogramming that drives cancer, according to a study published in Nature. The tumour growth mechanism seen here could be similar in other cancers, such as lung and bowel cancer, where the enzyme that breaks down fumarate is not present or not fully functional.

Fumarate is found naturally in fruits and vegetables. It is also produced artificially for use as a food additive to act as an acidity regulator and flavouring agent. It usually acts as an intermediately product during the citric acid cycle, which the cells use to produce energy.

Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRC) is a rare form of cancer that results in skin tumours and can lead to kidney cancer. It was already known that the disease was related to a mutation in the gene that codes for the enzyme fumarate hydratase (FH), found in the mitochondria, but until now it was unclear how this leads to tumour growth.

Researchers from the MRC Cancer Unit at Cambridge University used a combination of RNA sequencing and metabolic, the study of small molecules resulting from metabolism, to find out what was causing tumour growth.

The team found that the excess fumarate that results from the loss of FH led to epigenetic changes to a micro RNA. This caused the micro RNA to be suppressed, which functions in the prevention of metastasis.

These epigenetic changes resulted in the expression of genes that initiated epithelial to mesenchymal transition. This is the process whereby normal cells become cancerous and metastasise, spreading around the body.

Now that the mechanism of tumour growth related to FH loss is known, future work can focus on how fumarate is involved in other cancers. For instance, it has been shown that FH is lost in other types of tumours, including non-hereditary renal cancer, neuroblastoma, and tumours of the adrenal gland. Given that metastasis is the primary cause of death in cancer patients, understanding how to block metastasis caused by fumarate could be a key strategy for cancer therapy. Future work would also need to be done to further understand the action of fumarate in normal conditions.

Lead researcher, Dr Christian Frezza from the MRC Cancer Unit, says: “The findings of our study suggest that the disruption of FH and the resulting fumarate accumulation have roles in this type of kidney cancer. This could also be a feature of other tumour types where FH loss has been reported, including neuroblastoma, colorectal and lung cancer.”

Dr Nathan Richardson, head of molecular and cellular medicine at the MRC, says: “The results of this research give us a clearer insight into how fumarate is involved in this form of renal cancer. It now gives us the opportunity to see if this also applies to other common forms of cancer and also how metabolism is related to the progression of the disease.”

Immune system plays major role in regulation of body weight

Immune system plays major role in regulation of body weight

New research involving a team of Irish, American and Canadian researchers reveals that the immune system could be responsible for as much as 40% of our body’s ability to regulate weight.

Professor Donal O’ Shea, Consultant Endocrinologist at St Vincent’s University Hospital and a Fellow in UCD Conway Institute at University College Dublin is one of the lead authors on the research paper,

“We know that once weight is gained, for the majority of people, it is very difficult to lose that weight. It is too simplistic to say eat less, move more and the weight will come off. It doesn’t actually work like that. The body has a very powerful reaction to defend against weight loss, which we now know involves the immune system.

We normally think of the immune system as something that guards against infection and diseases. However in evolutionary terms, a sudden or rapid weight loss could be a more immediate threat to survival. This immune system response contributes to why people really struggle to lose weigh, despite their best efforts to control calories and do exercise. Our findings give us a much better understanding of why this is so and they illustrate the dynamic role that the immune system plays in regulating body weight”.

Dr Lydia Lynch, Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School, and Associate Professor, Trinity College Dublin, and the first author on the study explains:

“We discovered that a very common immune cell, called the invariant natural killer T cell (iNKT cell), plays a key role in setting off a complex chain of events that regulate and enhance weight loss.

The iNKT cell is needed to help fat cells make a small protein called fibroblast growth factor-21, (FGF-21), which triggers the body to metabolise or turn white fat into a much healthier brown fat. This browning of white fat uses large amounts of energy, leading to increased metabolic rate and weight loss.

We know that people who are obese often have sluggish immune systems and a lower amount of these iNKT cells. With less iNKT cells, the body doesn’t make FGF-21, and this prevents the body from converting white fat to change it into brown fat.

So, if you stimulate the body to produce iNKT cells, you can increase the amount of FGF-21. This, in turn, leads to enhanced browning of , and increased metabolic rate and weight loss.

This new knowledge opens up novel areas for treating weight loss, and will greatly enhance our ability to improve existing hormone treatments for weight loss.”

Brendan Quinn is a fitness instructor who became obese after he developed an immune system disorder. With no change in his diet and exercise levels, his weight went from 76kg to 120 kg over a three-to-four year period.

“I was really struggling to try to lose the weight. I was very strict with my diet and exercise, and in theory I should have been losing weight, but it just wasn’t coming off. When Professor O’Shea approached me, I was very happy to try this new approach which tried to get my immune system to work better in order to then allow my body to lose weight. The results were almost immediate. I lost 12 kg in the first five weeks, and a total of 23kg since I started treatment five months ago”.

Graham Love, Chief Executive of the Health Research Board, who funded the Irish arm of the research said,

‘This is a highly significant breakthrough in understanding obesity, one of the global health challenges of our time. It will help change approaches we take to care for and transform many people’s lives’.

Professor O’Shea believes that these findings represent a significant step forward in our understanding of why people often find it so hard to lose weight, despite their best efforts.

“The findings should help break many of the stigmas associated with obesity, and most importantly, could dramatically improve outcomes for patients. Ultimately, this research underlies the absolute importance of prevention of weight gain in the first place. This work should be used by policy makers to prioritise obesity prevention strategies, especially childhood obesity’.

The research was funded by the Health Research Board in Ireland, the European Research Council and the National Institute of Health, USA. The research has just been published in the journal Cell Metabolism and is available from their website at the link below.

Zinc found to reverse brain cell changes in autism

Cellular changes in the brain caused by genetic mutations that occur in autism can be reversed by zinc, according to research at the University of Auckland.

Medical scientists at the University’s Department of Physiology have researched aspects of how autism mutations change brain cell function for the past five years.

This latest work – a joint collaborative effort lead by neuroscientist collaborators in Auckland, America and Germany – was published today in the high impact journal, the Journal of Neuroscience.

The study was funded by the Marsden Fund and the Neurological Foundation.

Lead investigator at the University of Auckland, Associate Professor Johanna Montgomery from the University’s Department of Physiology and Centre for Brain Research, says “This most recent work, builds significantly from our earlier work showing that gene changes in autism decrease brain cell communication.”

“We are seeking ways to reverse these cellular deficits caused by autism-associated changes in brain cells,” she says.”This study looks at how can alter brain cell communication that is altered at the cellular level and we are now taking that forward to look at the function of zinc at the dietary and behaviour level.”

“Autism is associated with genetic changes that result in behavioural changes,” says Dr Montgomery. “It begins within the cells, so what happens at a behavioural level indicates something that has gone wrong at the cellular level in the brain.”

International studies have found that normally there are high levels of zinc in the brain, and brain cells are regulated by zinc, but that zinc deficiency is prevalent in autistic children.

“Research using animal models has shown that when a mother is given a low zinc diet, the offspring will be more likely to display autistic associated behaviours,” she says.

“Our work is showing that even the cells that carry genetic changes associated with autism can respond to zinc.

“Our research has focussed on the protein Shank3, which is localized at synapses in the brain and is associated with neuro-developmental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia,” she says.

“Human patients with genetic changes in Shank3 show profound communication and behavioural deficits. In this study, we show that Shank3 is a key component of a zinc-sensitive signalling system that regulates how brain cells communicate.”

“Intriguingly, autism-associated changes in the Shank3 gene impair brain cell communication,” says Dr Montgomery. “These genetic changes in Shank3 do not alter its ability to respond to zinc”.

“As a result, we have shown that zinc can increase brain cell communication that was previously weakened by autism-associated changes in Shank3”.

“Disruption of how zinc is regulated in the body may not only impair how synapses work in the brain, but may lead to cognitive and behavioural abnormalities seen in patients with psychiatric disorders.”

“Together with our results, the data suggests that environmental/dietary factors such as changes in zinc levels could alter this protein’s signalling system and reduce its ability to regulate the nerve cell function in the brain,” she says.

This has applications to both autism and psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.

Dr Montgomery says the next stage of their research is to investigate the impact of dietary zinc supplements to see what impact it has on autistic behaviours.

“Too much zinc can be toxic, so it is important to determine the optimum level for preventing and treating  and also whether zinc is beneficial for all or a subset of genetic changes that occur in Autism patients.”
