Please, Get the Digital Baby Monitor Out of the Nursery!

Is this old news to you? If not, read on.

As a parent, this information may be very hard for you to hear at first…

As I said on my post 9 Facts About Wireless & Your Child’s Brain, please view this information as a gift. I hope this gives you a starting point to take action in your home.

When you first learn you are pregnant, you make a list of “must haves.” Probably the list includes a digital baby monitor. But, would you be surprised if I said this is one thing you may not want? 

As one article said, “It’s hard to talk about the dangers of wireless technology without sounding like a conspiracy theorist. This is especially true in the United States, where non-industry-funded studies are rare, where legislation protecting the wireless industry from legal challenges has long been in place, and where our lives have been so thoroughly integrated with wireless technology that to suggest it might be a problem—maybe, eventually, a very big public-health problem—is like saying our shoes might be killing us.

Except our shoes don’t send electromagnetic frequencies directly into our brains.” If this was even partially true, I’m sure you would want to know. You need to be able to make your own analysis instead of being told what is ‘good for you’, so do your own research and don’t just believe everything out there written (including me)!

The Nitty Gritty of Baby Monitors

Most baby monitors are now advertised as using DECT phone technology (1.8 to 1.9 GHz) or operate at 2.4 GHz, the same electromagnetic microwave frequency used for microwave ovens, cordless phones, and Wi-Fi routers. These are identifiable by the large number of claimed channels (usually at least 30 and often up to 120), which DECT automatically switches (roams) between. These emit sharply pulsing bursts of microwave frequencies 100 times every second all the time they are turned on. (PowerWatch –source)

Digital baby monitors, bought by parents to keep their children safe, may instead be harming them, some scientists fear.  They warn that the devices are bathing the infants in electromagnetic frequencies at an age when they are most vulnerable to it.

According to PowerWatch, a wireless baby monitor a 1 meter (~3 feet) away from the baby’s crib was roughly equivalent to the microwaves experienced from a cell phone tower only 150 meters (~450 feet) away. 

Most parents would agree that installing a cell phone tower next to a school would definitely not be a good idea. The battle is being fought around the U.S. and largely has been won in Europe apparently due to more independent studies and less suppression of truth.

‘Talk Back’, Camera-Based, and Mat Digital Baby Monitors

There are also some camera-based monitors which run at 2.4 GHz. Since these have to transmit video and sound, it is likely that they would have a higher power output. (source)

The digital baby monitor mats that check temperature, heartbeat, breathing, etc, should only be used if you have medical reasons to believe that your baby might be in danger of sudden infant death. When used with a wireless baby alarm they carry high levels of microwaves (up to 6 volts per metre) right into the cot, and we believe that will not do your baby any good at all. (source)

 

 

Health Studies on Baby Monitors and Infants

Might there be a relationship between Sudden Death Infant Syndrome (SIDS), autism, ADD or other neurological disorders among children who were exposed to microwave emitting monitors as babies? One scientific paper proposed: A possible association between fetal/neonatal exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic radiation and the increased incidence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). (source)

The study links the introduction of wireless RF (Radio Frequency) communication technologies such as baby monitors to the rise autism in the public. It states:

For several decades prior to 1980 autism incidence remained essentially invariant; reportedly at about one diagnosed case per 2000 children…RF radiation sources have become commonplace in the personal human environment from approximately 1980 to the present. Operation of an RF radiation source such as a two-way radio, portable telephone, or a cell phone exposes the operator to levels of RF radiation shown to be biologically active….. Passive operation, such as from an RF emitting baby monitor, is a widespread postnatal exposure….Some of the known effects of exposure to RF radiation include cognitive impairment, memory deficit, EEG modifications, DNA damage, chromosome aberrations, micronucleus formation, fetal malformation, increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier, altered cellular calcium efflux, and altered cell proliferation.

According to the Autism Society of Canada:

Currently, 1 in 110 children are diagnosed with autism today compared to 1 in 2000 thirty years ago when wireless baby monitors were commercially introduced. The estimated prevalence of savant abilities in autism is 10% and the most common forms involve mathematical calculations. For history buffs – the very first wireless baby monitor was tested in 1937, on Robert John (Bob) Widlar, who became a world famous mathematical savant who exhibited a complex destructive personality disorder.

Dr. Magda Havas, PhD (and others) ask:

Is there a link to cancers such as childhood leukemia or nervous system tumors? Do infants sleep poorly with these monitors as indicated by PowerWatch (UK) and is the link between an infant’s erratic heart rate and exposure to these baby monitors real? We just published a paper on erratic heart rate for adults exposed to a 2.4 digital cordless phone!

At any rate, exposing infants to microwave radiation, even at very low levels is unwise. Since technology is available to provide voice-activated baby monitors–the ones that emit microwave radiation only when activated–the baby monitors that emit microwave radiation continuously should be banned – especially DECT baby monitors. 

We can’t help our children being exposed to radiation from phone towers and masts, other people’s mobile and cordless phones, but we can reconsider using a digital baby monitor. 

PowerWatch strongly recommends that only low-band (35 to 50 MHz) analog baby monitors be used. These use analog frequency modulation (FM, like VHF radio stations) that does not pulse at all. The analog monitors are often identifiable by their low number of channels – typically 2-4. (source)

Understanding this information may make immense difference to you and your families health. Knowledge leads to action and should not lead to guilt (which I’ll address in a moment).

A Baby Monitor or Not For Better Sleep?

According to PowerWatch, once parents remove wireless baby monitors for the older style plug-in models or none at all, they report the child cries less, is less irritable, and sleeps better.

Though it is beyond the scope of this post, this tip may help you and your baby get more sleep:

Nearing four months, babies are beginning to cycle between light and deep sleep and may start sleeping through the night…hoorah! Each night, a four-month old will go through two or three complete sleep cycles. Every 90 minutes, babies cycle to a state of light sleep called REM. Every three to four hours, they cycle to a more active, almost awake state. Each time they move into that light sleep, they will usually make noise, move about, cry out, and may even wake themselves. We adults do it, too, minus the crying, of course.

At these intervals when we hear these sounds (often around 11PM, 2AM, and 5AM), we often want to go to our babies, pick them up to comfort them, feed them, or hold them so they don’t wake the household. But by going in to check our babies when we hear movement or cries during the night, we risk two things:

  1. Really waking your baby by going to him when she’s just in a light sleep cycle and isn’t really awake

  2. Conditioning your baby to need you to settle her down between sleep cycles. It prevents her from practicing techniques to fall back asleep again early on when she does awaken

The goal for any parent is to learn what is a real cry needing attention and to ignore all the other sounds your baby makes at night. I just want you get a good night sleep when you can! With a bit of practice and the natural instinct God gave to Mothers, you will gain that understanding quickly. 

Guilt

Because many of us hold ourselves to higher standards when it comes to parenting than perhaps any other endeavor, I need to address the area of guilt.

The moment our new babies comes into our arms, a whole new set of emotions rushes in – joy, wonderment, pride, fear, and, yes, guilt. I’ve totally been there and still feel terrible about so many things I’ve done or failed to do! But we live in an extremely confusing world today, and we cannot know everything, so my thinking is this: Just having accurate information is empowering (that is why I write) and it need not make us feel guilty or fearful. Mamas, please know I am on your side, and silly as it sounds since I don’t know you all individually and personally, I care very much for you and your family…I guess it’s just the way I’m wired. Please stop the guilt.

My go-to place is prayer…for wisdom, courage, insight, strength, understanding, good instincts as a Mom, and so much more, and I pray these things for you, too. We have a loving Lord who will give us these things when we ask:

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” ~James 1: 2-5

Now Back to Baby Monitors…

By using an analog baby monitor, you will not be exposing them to microwave radiation or the pulse the first video demonstrates, but they are getting harder to find. Read the product information carefully, as it can be confusing.

Shop Amazon or look for them at garage sales. Even analog monitors, however, should be kept at least 3 feet from the child’s bed and if possible, used sparingly.

For Mothers & Daughters: Mama Bear & Brave

The recent United States Supreme Court’s landmark decision that homosexual couples have the right to marry may be greater than Roe v. Wade in its far-reaching implications and effects on our country. Christians rightfully recognize the decision as a byproduct of the moral and spiritual degeneration of the United States. For parents seeking to raise their children with a healthy, moral understanding of God’s design for marriage, the emphasis on and celebration of sexual deviancy presents a great threat to traditional Christian values. Now more than ever, it’s a time for Christian parents to be strong and courageous.

The Pixar movie, Brave, shows us how.

Wade, United States Supreme Court, landmark decision, homosexual marriage ruling,

 

An enchanting story about the wonderful, sometimes awful, always complex relationship between a mother and daughter, Brave begins with a curly-haired redhead sitting at her mother’s knee learning the basics of life as a princess. Along with the decidedly manly pursuits of archery and horseback riding allowed by her father, Merida learns the dress, decorum, and skills necessary to one day rule a kingdom.

And like many modern-day princesses, she chafes at her mother’s tutelage and chooses instead to go her own way. She rejects her mother’s vision for her life and casts off the perceived shackles that come with living out the destiny of a king’s daughter.

Through an exciting series of events, Merida realizes the value of her mother, Elinor’s, traditions, while Elinor realizes her daughter should have more freedom to choose her own future. Perhaps it’s OK, she concedes, for her daughter to be a bow-toting, horse-riding princess.

The movie is a thought-provoking, sensitive encouragement to mothers & daughters to respect and embrace each other’s differences.

But what’s a Christian parent to do when her child rejects the faith of her parents in her quest to make her own way in the world? Pixar doesn’t examine the spiritual side of destiny and calling, but the parallels are there.

In order to respect our children’s independence, must we concede our children’s right to choose a path that travels away from God? Must we allow them to cast faith by the wayside like so many traditions in their quest for independence and self-government?

I say no.

While most Christian parents acknowledge their young adult children’s right to choose their own professions, spouses, and recreation, we do not have to stand idly by and watch our children fling the faith of their fathers to the wind. Unlike the myriad of possibilities for a major, a profession, or a job, all of which can be subject to the individual interests and inclinations of our children, there is only one viable option for our children’s spiritual lives.

Faith.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life,” states Christ, “no one comes to the Father except through me.”

“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed.” (Deuteronomy 30:15-18).

In one of the most intense and poignant scenes of Brave, Elinor fights a raging, maniac bear that threatens to rip her precious daughter to shreds. As the bear looms over Merida with its teeth bared and its jaws dripping, Elinor springs to her rescue as only a mama bear can do.

Wade, United States Supreme Court, landmark decision, homosexual marriage ruling, is a life or death battle that the mama bear fights with every ounce of strength she has. There is no other option.

A great and terrible battle wages for our children. Instead of a grizzly bear trying to sink its teeth into their tender throats, the enemy wants to rip apart their souls. He will not rest until he has devoured our sons and daughters, and it’s up to us, Mama and Papa bears, to vanquish him.

We must do battle for the hearts and lives of our children.

We must fight with every ounce of spiritual strength we possess.

We must win this battle of all battles.

There is no other option.

God’s word tells us how: “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).

“Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” ~Ephesians 6:10-13

Will you join me in doing battle for the hearts of our children? I invite you to stand with me as I wrestle in prayer before God like Jacob, who stated, “I will not let you go until you bless me!”

May God in his mercy grant to each one of us the lives and souls of our children.

Be BRAVE.

9 Facts About Wireless & Your Child’s Brain

Wi-Fi (wireless) is microwave radiation.

As parents this information was very hard to hear at first…  Please view this information as a Gift. With information, we can take Action. 

Continue reading

FACT #1  Children absorb more of this (wireless) radiation than adults. 

“The average exposure from use of the same mobile phone is higher by a factor of 2 in a child’s brain and higher by a factor of 10 in the bone marrow of the skull.”

Children using mobile phones absorb as much as double the amount of radiation through their heads as adults. Dr. Om Ghandi, a leading scientist and professor of electrical engineering at the University of Utah found that young children under 10 years of age could absorb radiation across their entire brain. He found that more radiation is able to go past the ear and into the head since a child’s ear is thinner and the telephone is closer to the head.

(From Om Ghandi’s research on RF radiation absorption)

FACT #2  US exposure standards do not protect children. 

The radiation absorption model is of a 200-pound, 6-foot tall male brain (called SAM). This standard was set up almost 20 years ago.  Wireless radiation standards do not protect the 97% of the population with heads smaller than this adult male SAM model.  Read more about children’s absorption compared to adults and all about the research that informed the  picture above here.

FACT #3  Current exposure limits are based solely on the heating of tissue. 

They do not take into account accumulating research showing serious biological effects at low level “nonthermal” radiation levels.  These effects include DNA impacts, sleep damage, altered brain activity, increased cancer, cellular changes, skin tissue changes, damaged sperm motility and viability, decreased cognitive functioning, memory impairment, and disruption of the blood brain barrier.

FACT #4  The  biggest window of vulnerability occurs in utero and during childhood when the immune system and brain are developing.

Small insults can have large effects while cells are rapidly dividing. Microwave radiation has been shown to more strongly impact stem cells and children have more active stem cells.

Proffessor Leif Salford, who headed the research at Sweden’s prestigious Lund University, says “the voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones” is “the largest human biological experiment ever”.Research suggests that mobile phones and the new wireless technology could cause a “whole generation” of today’s teenagers to GO SENILE in the prime of their lives.

Professor Salford and his team have spent 15 years investigating microwave radiation. Their studies proved radiation could open the blood-brain barrier, allowing a protein called albumin to pass into the brain. Their latest work shows the process is linked to serious brain damage. Professor Salford said neurons that would normally not become “senile” until people reached their 60s may now do so when they were in their 30s. (source)

FACT #5  Wireless radiation is classified by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a Class 2 B carcinogen.

This classification is based on evidence of increased numbers of brain tumors in heavy users of cell phones observed over ten years. Heavy use was defined as 30 minutes a day. Adults who started using wireless devices as teens had a 4 times greater risk of brain tumors. Other Class 2 B Carcinogens include:  lead, dioxin, DDT, chloroform, and ethylbenzene.

FACT #6  Wireless radiation impacts brain maturation. 

Accumulating research shows significant impacts on the neuron development of young brains.

Dr. Hugh Taylor, Chief of Obstetrics at Yale, lead in utero research showing that wireless radiation during pregnancy resulted in developmental and behavioral problems in offspring.  The baby mice had impaired memory and increased hyperactivity.

Dr. Suleyman Kaplan did several research studies showing decreased neurons in the hippocampus and cerebellum after exposures to wireless radiation.  He summarized his state of the art research in his FCC submission. 

Furthermore, brain imaging studies show changed electrical activity during wireless exposures.  See below the picture of a brain  from the National Institute of Health study showing increased glucose metabolism in the brain areas exposed to wireless radiation.

FACT #7  The United States is lagging behind on protections for Children. 

The governments of France, Belgium, Israel, Finland, Russia, India and the European Union have all taken steps toward reducing children’s exposure to radiation from wireless devices – ranging from banning the marketing of cell phones to children under 14 to restricting wireless routers at schools.

The latest nation to join in this precautionary principle is Belgium.  As of March 1, 2014, sale and advertising of cell phones especially designed for children under the age of 7 years old is banned, as is advertising for cell phones during children’s programs on TV, radio, and the internet.  Recently, France’s National Assembly passed legislation banning Wi-Fi from nursery schools and strongly recommended wired connections rather than Wi-Fi until safety is proven.

FACT #8  NO ONE is offering safety assurances. 

The EPA states “More research is needed to clarify the question of safety.”

We know of no medical organization stating that this radiation is safe.  Instead, they all state more research is needed.

 Dr Samet of the World Health Organization states that the IARC clasification means that safety cannot be assured- a particular concern, given the prospect that most of the world’s population will have lifelong exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields.”

Several World Health Organization scientists have now stated that the evidence has increased and that the proper classification for this radiation is in a higher risk catagory.   Please see Dr. Anthony Miller testifying to the City of Toronto that wireless exposure should be a 2A (probable) carcinogen.

FACT #9  Low power does not mean LOW effects. 

When it comes to Wi-Fi radiation many will say that Wi-Fi is “lower” power so we should not worry.  We wish that were true.

  1. Our children are now exposed to chronic low-level radiation for hours a day and no research has been done to quantify this risk.  Scientists are specifically concerned with the erratic nature of the pulsed digital signal rather than the power.

  2.  In addition to the radiation from routers, the wireless devices in a classroom emit radiation.  Unlike cell phone radiation, this results in full body exposures on our children.  When children rest their laptops on their laps,  their reproductive organs are absorbing most of this radiation.  Since experimental research is showing damage to sperm and ovaries from this radiation, we can assume that there is a serious risk to our children’s reproductive health as well as their brains.

No comprehensive research has been done to evaluate the levels of radiation exposure  in classrooms where 30 or more devices are in use in a single room.

Our Children Are At Risk

Wi-Fi is microwave radiation, a possible human carcinogen.

What if this radiation is proven to conclusively cause cancer a decade from now?

If so, our children will have had a massive exposure since birth. We can act now to reduce the risk. As thoughtful parents, we are not comfortable playing Russian Roulette with our children’s health. Why risk our children’s future?

8 Ways to Reduce Potential Health Risks of Cell Phones:

  1. Don’t allow children to use a cell phone for calling.
  2. Limit calls to those that are absolutely necessary. 
  3. Carry and store cell phones away from the body.
  4. Don’t use your telephone when in a moving vehicle or a parked one.
  5. We are using a Pong case for our smart phones. The Environmental Health Trust has tested this product and found it to be reliable.
  6. Use an air-filled, wireless tube headset, or use a speaker instead of holding phones close to the head.
  7. Make longer calls from a land line when possible.
  8. Only use your cell phone in conditions of optimum reception. 

If it turns out that cell phones are as safe as sunbonnets, great. In the meantime, take a better-safe-than-sorry approach to this wonderful and potentially dangerous modern convenience.

“Mobile phones are arguably the most radiative appliance we have ever invented apart from the microwave oven and people are putting them up to their head – arguably the most sensitive part of the body. Human brains may absorb up to 40% of a cell phones radio frequency energy and as much as 60% of its microwave energy.” ~Dr. Roger Coghill, Coghill Research Laboratory

Top US Hospital Embraces Political-Correctness Over Truth

What does it mean to be persecuted for our faith?

I’ve often heard people say that Christians aren’t persecuted here in the United States. No, we aren’t suffering in a physical way for our faith, as are so many Christians in other parts of the world. Christians in many places are sacrificing their lives or being tortured for their faith. Still, it isn’t right to say that Christians in the United States are not being persecuted. 

Currently, something unthinkable is happening.  Continue reading

And as an RN, this is particularly troubling because people trust the medical profession to protect them – on both the personal and public health levels. 

A highly respected and beloved medical doctor is being persecuted – expelled from his hospital – for telling the politically-incorrect truth about a serious medical issue. What you are about to read is truly unprofessional and a breach of medical ethics, but this is where we’re headed in this country. Freedom of speech is effectively dead in America. It has been destroyed by the tyranny of political correctness

After a distinguished 30-year career on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and the medical staff of Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), urologist Paul Church, M.D., was expelled from the staff for using the hospital’s communication system to warn of the health risks of homosexual behavior. He has done research on diagnosing prostate and bladder cancer, and has been a frequent volunteer for medical mission projects in Mexico and Africa. He has also spoken before educational and civic groups on the subject of high-risk sexual behaviors.

 

  • Mayo Clinic Report
  • Gay Sex Health Risks – Warning: Description of homosexual perversion. Can you handle the truth about homo-sex? Most people can’t, because it is brutal (literally) and repulsive. Contained is a quotation from Dr. Stephen Goldstone, an open homosexual and Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

It was 11 years ago that Dr. Church and other like-minded colleagues raised concern with officials over the center’s decision to endorse the homosexual lifestyle by hosting an annual “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Achievement Award ceremony,” as well as to involve staff in LGBT events including participation in Boston’s annual “Gay Pride Week.”

Dr. Church was compelled to speak up further:

“The evidence is irrefutable that behaviors common within the homosexual community are unhealthy and high risk for a host of serious medical consequences, including STD’s, HIV and AIDS, anal cancer, hepatitis, parasitic intestinal infections, and psychiatric disorders,” Church submitted to officials via the center’s communication system after receiving an LGBT-related communication.

“Life expectancy is significantly decreased as a result of HIV/AIDS, complications from the other health problems, and suicide. This alone should make it reprehensible to the medical community, who has an obligation to promote and model healthy behaviors and lifestyles.”

Church called it “all together inappropriate” for BIDMC to “endorse, affirm, or encourage the behaviors ‘celebrated’ by Gay Pride Week.”

In April, 2012, Church requested that BIDMC’s communications department not send him further notices regarding LGBT activities. His request was ignored. Between 2013-14 Church continued to receive an ever-increasing number of emails and notices affirmative of the LGBT lifestyle. To one such communication received in 2013 he responded: “Celebrating sexual perversions is highly inappropriate, especially in the context of a medical center that should be aware of the negative health consequences of high risk behaviors. It also ignores and dishonors the religious convictions and moral objections that many members of the hospital community share.”

Dr. Church was not accused of any inappropriate or judgmental interactions with patients, staff, or colleagues. His use of the internal communication system to respond to hospital communications was deemed a violation of “established standards of professional conduct.” 

According to Mass Resistance, a pro-family website:

In July 2011, he was called into the Chief of Surgery’s office and told he should consider resigning or else he would face an investigation. He refused to resign. So a few months later a formal “Peer Review Committee” of BIDMC staff physicians was called together to “assess” his “conduct.” He again presented them with the medical facts, which they did not dispute, but ignored. The committee instead sent him a “letter of reprimand” ordering, “You shall have no communications [in any manner, to anyone in the hospital] concerning your opinion about sexual orientation, homosexuality, or other protected status.”

It was an unusual order – that a physician be banned from discussing critical medical facts relating to his expertise, that could affect the health of people the hospital serves.

Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) stated that the Boston Medical Center has a high profile for promoting Gay Pride and LGBT issues. Their 2011 promotional video on “Making it Better” shows many BIDMC employees praising its policies of “inclusiveness” and “diversity.” 

“Public education about the risks of smoking or obesity is required, but at BIDMC, teaching the risks associated with the gay lifestyle evidently constitutes ‘discrimination and harassment,’ and led to what amounted to a gag order and Dr. Church’s eventual removal,” concluded AAPS.  BIDMC did not attempt to refute Church’s statement since these risks are well known and undisputed, observes AAPS.

“All American physicians need to watch what is happening to Dr. Church (who is not a member of AAPS),” states AAPS executive director Jane Orient. M.D. “The penalty for making a truthful but politically-incorrect statement that ‘may offend’ someone could be the ruin of one’s medical career.”

In March, 2015, BIDMC announced its decision. Dr. Church was informed that because of his “unsolicited views about homosexuality that were offensive to BIDMC Staff,” he was being terminated from the hospital staff. Unbelievably, he was told that that his statements on the subject of gay health risks were “inconsistent with the established standards of professional conduct.”

Is This What the Future Holds?

Consider what 1 Peter says about the suffering of believers: For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.”  ~1 Peter 4: 3-4 (NIV)

Clearly there is persecution. Peter doesn’t use that word, but he is clearly referring to suffering because of one’s faith. In a similar way, today, Christians are maligned and slandered for their beliefs, and they are also verbally abused for not indulging in the same lifestyle as unbelievers. 

Likewise, Jesus said to his disciples, “Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man!” ~Luke 6:22

Early Christians were maligned, criticized, and rejected for not following the cultural ethics of the Greek and Roman world. In the same way today, many are astonished that biblical Christians have such a “narrow” sexual ethic. We are opposed and even thought harmful to society because we don’t approve the sin that is celebrated in many quarters.

For years, many of us have held our beliefs, the truths of the Word of God in the Bible, to ourselves, perhaps so that we wouldn’t be perceived as judgmental or unloving. Is the failure to [humbly and thoughtfully] engage Biblical principles in the marketplace of ideas over the past 50 or more years the main reason why we have lost so much ground in the courts, the public forum, and just about everywhere else? Now that we speak out, we are called hateful, ignorant, irrelevant, and homophobic, among other “hateful” things.

Dr. Church professionally told the medical and moral truth about homosexual behavior and has been persecuted for it. He stood on the Word of God by simply responding with these verses when pressed: Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:26-28. 

It is one thing for education, big business, or our government to succumb to the ethos of political-correctness. But when the medical profession values tolerance of the sexual revolution over truth (and health)- denying and silencing the medical truth – it is time for all of us to wake up.

I applaud Dr. Church for being willing to risk his whole medical career over his conviction that certain sexual practices are unhealthy and dangerous to those who engage in them.

Please contact the president of BIDMC. Tell him this is an unacceptable way for a hospital to act. Ask that Dr. Church be reinstated to his position.

Medy’s Avocado Ice Cream

A month before I had our twins, I received doctor’s orders to stay off my feet to delay their entry into this world as long as possible. With a 23-month old, and 7 infertility procedures under my belt, I needed help, so we asked a young Filipino woman to come and stay with us for a time. She needed help and so did we. Medy taught us how to make an amazing typical Filipino avocado ice cream.

I just have to say: if properly made, the ice cream will not hardly taste like avocado. It will taste like velvety cream and slightly nutty, but the avocados must be absolutely ripe! Continue reading

Through the years I’ve experimented with Medy’s recipe to make it dairy-free and refined sugar-free, and it’s still just as fabulous. Minimally honey or real maple syrup sweetened (and sometimes a dash of stevia), the secret to this recipe is a generous splash of my exotic Madagascar vanilla extract!

It’s perfect for those hot dog days of summer but rich and satisfying anytime!

Our family loves avocados. We love avocados so much we can go through 2-3 a day. They are the perfect fruit for making “ice cream” because they are so creamy!

And because avocados are so healthy, you can indulge in about all you want.

Avocados are a Superfood:

How To Make Avocado Ice Cream

Ingredients (serves 6-8):

  • 8 small or 4 large perfectly ripe avocados
  • 1 /4 – 1/2 cup raw honey or maple syrup to taste
  • 1/ 4 cup full-fat coconut milk or other milk (almond milk, raw milk….) (how to make coconut milk)
  • 1/2 tsp. of sea salt
  • 2 tsp. real vanilla extract
  • add a splash of lime or lemon juice, optional,  to keep it from turning dark as avocados will

Note: Only use absolutely ripe avocados. For a slightly less sweet ice cream, use 1/5 cup of your sweetener and add stevia of your choice to taste. Or use stevia altogether.

Directions:

1. Cut avocados in quarters, pop out the pits, and peel down the heavy skin.
2. Smash the soft avocado meat with a fork until no lumps remain. This takes no time at all with a potato masher when they are truly ripe!
3. Add sweetener and all other ingredients and mix thoroughly with spoon. Taste test for sweetness at this time.
4. Put mixture in blender for extra smooth consistency, optional
5. Pour into your freezer container and freeze for at minimum 3 hours or overnight.

Tip: Save a couple of empty ice cream containers and their lids to re-use just for your own homemade ice cream!

Also, I found out that if you store your ice cream container in a freezer bag it won’t freeze hard into a frozen brick, and you can scoop it out much more easily. Otherwise, ice cream may be too frozen to eat directly from the freezer, so you may have to let it stand a little while in order for it to defrost (about 15-30 minutes).

Thank God for Medy, allowing me to recover and rest, keeping the twins put for 2 more months, allowing me extra special time with our active toddler, not to mention learning a bit of fabulous Filipino cooking!

Enjoy your heaven in a spoon! Good health to you and Bon appétit!

History Of Chronic Pain? Think Lyme Disease

Do you have a long history of health issues with symptoms that change daily or monthly, but never go away? Think Lyme disease until proven otherwise. 

Continue reading

A recent question I received:

“I am a 38 year old mother of 4, and my life hasn’t been normal since 2007. I used to run 3-4 times a week and felt very fit.  All of a sudden, I developed inability to multi-task, painful joints, vertigo, severe headaches and what I would describe as chronic fatigue.  I’ve gone to numerous doctors for a whole string of symptoms including night sweats, double vision, brain fog, and unexplained rashes.  Last week, my sister told me to look up “Lyme Disease,” and I did. It explained my life! I called a doctor friend, but he said Lyme isn’t common in this area, so I have no idea what to do now. Can you give me some direction?” ~J.T.

My answer: I have long had an interest in Lyme Disease because of friends battling it, and I have been exploring this in my own life, but I am not an expert or a doctor. That said, these are some things I have learned that I can share for you to explore:

Who?

There are many Lyme-literate medical doctors (LLMDs) in the U.S., and here are several people who educate: Dr. Lee Cowden, Dr. Joseph Burrascano, Dr. Joseph Jemsek, and Stephen Harrod Buhner; each has a very different perspective. The controversy surrounding Lyme is ongoing.

What?

Lyme is often misdiagnosed or dismissed. A common theme is chronic pain. It can mimic multiple sclerosis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and epilepsy – so it’s a puzzle. That’s awful, because if you’re diagnosed incorrectly, opportunity is missed and precious anti-microbials needed to kill Lyme bugs are never taken, leading to potentially catastrophic problems. Not to be dramatic or anything, just ask a Lyme sufferer!

According to my research, no two patients have the same symptoms, which come and go: poor memory, exhaustion, brain fog, loss of balance, insomnia, yeast infections, twitches, numbness in extremities, loss of muscle strength, anxiety, back/neck pain, neuropathy, migraines, dizziness, muscle/joint pain, cramps, bladder or testicular pain, urethritis, buzzing, depression and mood swings, sound sensitivity, eye or ear pain, and irregular heartbeat. And there’s so much more.

You hear about a tick bite followed by a bulls-eye rash. That rash only occurs in 50 percent of people, and most won’t ever see a tick since they can be as small as the point of a very small pin. Although you won’t find much to back this up online, I fully believe Lyme is also transmitted by mosquitoes and other biting insects. Same with kissing or having sex with someone who has Lyme. Babies contact it from mother while in utero. Often it remains dormant for months to years.

Now What?

If you have a long history of health issues, with symptoms that change daily or monthly, but never go away, I’d seriously consider Lyme testing by a lab that specializes in it, for example Igenex, Fry, or Advance Labs. Inaccurate results by regular labs may produce a false negative, so you think you don’t have Lyme when you do. Years of confusion and grief would follow. The extra expense seems worth it.

Lyme infection is not just caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, but it is a co-infection of many organisms such as Babesia, Rickettsia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, or Epstein-Barr behind the many and varied symptoms. The recommended labs above are better at detecting these bugs.  Finally, the “CD57” blood test offers a clue, and tracks your progress, and I recommend LabCorp for that particular test.

Under Our Skin – Horror to Hope

I’d recommend watching Under Our Skin 1 (2009) and follow it up with the trailer of Under Our Skin 2 (2014). Most likely, if you have Lyme’s these videos will clear up much of the mystery and help you make sense of it.

Our family has chosen to take Monolaurin, Bio-Fibrin, and Banderol as part of a long term treatment and maintenance.
