What I Want Every Mother (and Others) to Know Of, Then Go From There. THE Cause of All Problems Presented In Emerging Research
First, as a preface -- let me acknowledge that I'm using the word "all" loosely in the title; most or many might be more accurate. If you're not into prefaces, scan down to where the pickle photo is and start there. I think the following context setting will help most people reading this, however.
I want to acknowledge my Facebook friends, comrades and followers. Years of networking and studying diligent activists who are authentically pursuing their outreach activities to help others recover their health or that of children lead me to more innovative experts about health than I'd ever imagined when I started Lumigrate.
Recently my shares have been very different, mostly about Earth changes. Quakes. Volcanoes. Forecasts for future ones, via Facebook friends Delphina Nova and "Dutchsince". I routinely encourage people to connect with their FB offerings or websites, etc. directly because the Earth is basically very active right now. I normally share a lot of things about diet. Or geoengineering, which includes weather modification. This blog will hopefully tie a lot of it all together.
Editing this end of August (2015), there continued to be what many call "dots" -- stories in even the mainstream media (and then reflected on social media) now, telling us that there are problems and unusual things going on but totally leaving out the 'connecting' material, or obliquely referring to something and 'paving the way'. The information here will help 'connect the dots'. It's raining and snowing nitrogen in a Colorado park, per NPR shortly after I created this blog topic. The researcher uses the word weird, even ... Think about what NON scientists have MISSED as cues, or those 'brain dead' for whatever reasons --- Here's the link:
This is my best attempt to bring what I currently understand to YOUsers of Lumigrate, and I'm increasingly confident we're on the right path, and giving more light to the matter than, apparently, any other website in the world. A lucky break, I had, a year ago, encountering another truth-telling, teaching, researching activist recovering from significant symptoms of chronic illness. Read on, you'll learn the whole story.
Just a few of the stories: wild spider webs in Texas, wild caterpillar webs in Denver, algae at the top of mountains in Colorado with nothing upstream. How's it getting there? Then sometimes the information provided goes in a different direction than what I'll lead you to on this topic's links.... Back to what I prepared in May....
Coinciding with this activity with the Earth comes news such as something put out by Reuters last week where they're letting us know about the 'bugs' that are coming from very hot flows and seeps under the ground, and very cold waters in the deep seas.
"Breaking it to us slowly" it seems to me, and not connecting the dots for us to the increasing lack of wellness in humans, perhaps indicating more about plants, sea life, tree life, soils, water, and whatnot. I thankfully was to connect in 2014 with someone and something that I think is connecting the dots, and I want to be sure YOU know about it too. He alleges that some of what geoengineering is about has to do with addressing thesa ancient cosmic-traveled bacteria that are increasingly getting into our environment and selves.
There, barely a few paragraphs in and I already tied geoengineering in here; world famous autism / Lyme / chronic conditions MD Dietrick Klinghardt had revealed in a 2014 interview I have in the forums at Lumigrate that geoengineering is occurring. He went on to say doctors know a lot of things they are not allowed to tell people. But he attributed the heavy metals in the geoengineering chems to increase in molds and algae because they are 'trying to do us a favor' and absorb those things. This makes them flourish.
The mainstream and local media, as well as social media and indy sources have been putting out stories about algae blooms in recent years. Whole cities were without water due to blooms in 2014. Dogs have been dying in Florida and California in new stories I have seen. Now that my eyes are tuned in for algae or lichen and etc., I noticed after a recent rain that a tire track in the desert had algae in it, and this was after less than a week from when the rains started.
I live in the desert of western Colorado/ eastern Utah, in an agricultural valley. Therefore, it has irrigation canals all over, people pay for ditch water that's very cheap and they have big 'shares' and don't have to be frugal with water application. So water ends up sprayed or dribbled down rows of slanted land which the sun hits and warms and makes it very humid. I'm very concerned and now understand why 11 years ago when I moved here I noticed more ill people here than anywhere I'd ever lived aside from my community of origin in the Colorado mountains outside of Denver. A chiropractor told me he thought it was from the molds.
My own city for now 11-1/2 years, Grand Junction, had a story in April about the new solar powered floating robot pump that is now circulating water to prevent or reduce algae blooms so they don't have to add chemicals for that anymore. I couldn't find anything online that they'd told people they were adding chemicals at the reservoir. I think our water is of primary importance. And water is very much part of this story and information I want everyone to be knowing about and thus writing this blog post.
But has anyone been alerting us to be doing something more to make the tap water pure and safe? No. Can everyone do that? Are there enough r/o machines in grocery stores to go around, would that mess up what goes into the wastewater treatment plants after the r/o machine has provided what the consumer bottles and purchases? I suspect so.
And while the wastewater and water treatment industries are intimately connected, they are separate entities typically. I have a friend (a mother, by the way) who works in that industry and eventually said 'we have just one water, ultimately'. So my theory is that this has to be a word of mouth, independent, 'ripple effect' that we, the people, tell each other about. Hence I wanted to be sure YOU saw this information when coming to Lumigrate.
Fat also absorbs heavy metals in our bodies Dr Klinghardt said elsewhere, also an interview I've transcribed portions of in the forums. I think he provides good foundational information for people wanting to learn about what's making us all sick, though he doesn't reveal about the things I'm sharing in 2015 at Lumigrate (and in person, verbally, etc.)
Four times in my life I've had massive and sudden weight gain for a short time then it stopped and eventually dropped off about the same fast way it went on, I was interested in that. I'd had that occur in late 2010/early 2011 and I am pleased to say I have gradually had my weight going in a good direction and in a slow way (important for the body to be dealing with the released metals). When you know better / differently, you can do better/ differently. I've continued learning and doing differently.
This is now 40 years since I changed my diet the first time for blood sugar problems. I had blood pressure problems too, nobody every put me into a tilt table test and found what they'd today hopefully diagnose as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I've had to find out about that one on my own and found Facebook extremely helpful. Yes, use doctors and other providers perhaps, but don't count on that they'll come up with things better than you can.
That's actually something that Patrick Timpone says outright in an interview with author and diet expert / addiction expert Pam Killeen, and I'm sharing the link for that below with the other links because the protocol that this blog is ultimately about has nothing to do with diet. People have been consuming a variety of things and reporting good results. Some eat clean, some are enjoying things they could previously not eat at all without severe neurologic responses.
Pam advises about eating 'square meals' and explains why sourdough is better than straight dough and I think is the most simplified way of eating that I've heard from any of the experts. She suggests quality protein at all meals, good fats are important and things that fit with all the information I have set up at Lumigrate in recent years. You need that time not fooling with special diets to do what we need to do relative to the bacteria, ultimately.
So please at least 'follow me' on Facebook if you're into that kind of thing. Ultimately, anything of importance ends up in the forums at Lumigrate. And every now and then I add a blog post about what I really want people looking at if they find their way to Lumigrate's blog tab or box that updates what's new in blog posts.
You'll see that I rarely add to the blogs, this is the first for 2015. The reason is this: anyone finding Lumigrate will see the links on the side box (titled Blog Posts), or perhaps go to the blog link to see what I blog about, and they will have a very focused, limited view of what I currently see as the most important things for them to see. The forums have many 'containers' (sections) and within each sometimes many forums, and the most topics most recently added onto have been 'bumped' to the top of the list in each forum.
So that's another way for people to find the things I've recently been adding onto because I have continually created content since our beginning in 2009 to bring 'the underlying causes' of wellness, or lack thereof, to YOUsers at Lumigrate. I am so glad YOU are here. I hope you find the information at Lumigrate valuable, and do whatever you need to remember to come back and see more. I link to a variety of media for people who like to use podcasts and videos, and often I transcribe some or all of those things so people can have that to refer to.
Lumigrate's YOU! Model. "Lumigrate", "Mardy" can be on YOUR model, among others. Such as Steve Beddingfield, and the mothers and others that become admins and teachers under him in his group on Facebook. The highlights of which I am bringing to topics on Lumigrate, which I want this blog to help direct YOU to. Here's an image that might help get your attention.
This is not one of Steve's photos, this is one posted in his group recently, by a mother whose teen aged kiddo horrifically saw after her first bite of a pickle, commercially produced (and a known name brand). This stuff is everywhere now, any brand could have it. Best to grow your own food, have control over what's getting out of control or not in your soils. This is likely the biggest story on Earth right now and Mainstream Media is now gently letting us know about it. I include those things in what I provide in links on the Lumigrate topics I provide for YOU to more readily find them. And then see the big picture, the forest, so to speak. And perhaps take action and save your life or health as well as others'.
(See link, below, to the topic that I provide that has this pickle picture and explanation of what YOU are seeing here, per Steve Beddingfield and others from the comments this photo created with his increasingly knowledgeable admins and others learning, future educators and admins and those who will help create a ripple effect in addition to what I'm able to do with Lumigrate.
A summary of what this about was stated by Steve this way: "Imagine this scenario: we are sickened by one of the largest bacteria known, it replicates at least 100 times faster than other bacteria, carries many endo and ectopic things along with it. It is capable of storing more memory than a Google server. Our butts are in deep trouble.").
Be forewarned if you're new, my intention with topics is to help YOU (consumers) become thoroughly educated about the topic that you've accessed, enough to know WHY, at the very least. That work cannot be done for you. Take time away from something else that's not as important as your wellness, is my suggestion, and basically do this:
- Step 1: Get enough "educated" about something ("awareness" is just the first step in that direction), surround yourself with a variety of providers (virtually at Lumigrate or perhaps you'll be fortunate enough to have advisers directly).
- Step 2: Use what YOU use to make decisions about things -- your brain, your intuition, talking with people you know, professional or amateurs.
- Step 3. Take action (or not). It's that simple. Your choice!
As I've developed more practice with not just the information but then applying it to my self and what I see around me in my environments inland in central western Colorado, I'm working to make the information more manageable.
In August I created a topic that I'm going to set the link up for here, high up in this blog topic, as it's the "THE Stuff: 101 - Applications and Examples" version. You might pop to it now on the link, or come back to it. I'd definitely go there. THIS BLOG TOPIC you are on is the virtual 'clipboard' that has all the links to all the various topics on Lumigrate which have something to do with THE Stuff. I can easily, then, say to people "Just go to the BLOG tab, you'll see the top things I want people seeing in blogs, the one about emerging research I'm wanting everyone to learn about and consider's right there where you and everyone can find it without dependence on a link...... " www.lumigrate.com/forum/stuff-interloping-and-overwhelming-everything-examples-and-ideas-remediation-our-immediate-env
Note from Mardy May 23, 2016 -- you will see at the topic about THE Stuff, and at the massively detailed but not polished thread about Steve's Images, Protocol, Research, etc., that I have asked people to NOT GO JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP WITHOUT FIRST CONTACTING ME. I give the reasons for that when you go, and I'll not add to the words here. I'll just say I'm easy to find as Mardy Ross at Facebook, and the About tab here at Lumigrate has updated information (Contact us does NOT, I did it in the past now can't figure out how to do it again with more changes). Also, here at the blog tab the blog that's pinned to the top about me being Mardy Poppins has my updated information as well. (As those operate similar to updating forum information and so I can do that, thankfully.).
I'm working at providing a group learning setting for anyone who comes through me and I don't discourage going to Steve's group AS LONG AS YOU GET IT FIRST HAND, 1:1 from me, why I'm concerned about those who go there as newcomers to learn. I've had everyone I mentor and facilitate who went into the group and many others seek me out to inquire about basically the same things everyone gets baffled by. It'll just help you not get 'injured' as so many end up having happen when in the group. Either overlooked, not feeling they're being addressed, or worse.
It's like the 'spot' you designate to meet up if there's a separation of a group or an emergency -- this is where people are going to most easily be able to find the most important information, which is how I've used the blog area for several years now.
This is the sixth year that I've come to Mother's Day since Lumigrate launched in March of 2009. Initially, I'd envisioned a simple website just about 'fibromyalgia', but then it was obvious to me from 'the universe' that I was to not niche into 'the F word'.
So we created the logo and 'motto' plus the foundational information to represent 'integrative medicine'; you'll see the two green and purple ribbons weaving together with the light burst coming out from the center, and "Lighting the Path to Health and Well-Being".
I say 'we' because I'd had the good fortune of having a fabulous assistant, who was a mother and soon-to-be-grandmother at the ripe age of 37, working full time for over a year which allowed Lumigrate to have much that she had input with, that YOU see today. I hope and trust she and others she knows continue to utilize the progressive, truthful, cutting-edge information I've continued on with, solo, since 2009 when there were no longer funds for hiring people, renting space, etc.
I've been credited with my abilities for 'resilience'. I simply will say that I consider what I had to offer and do a gift of good fortune and from God/Source/WhateverYouWishToCall"It", and know that Lumigrate has always increasingly been helping people find their path to health and well-being. In a way, I guess Mother's Day for me applies, I have compared having a website to having a baby, toddler, youngster, adolescent, young adult and someday something that 'takes care of Mama'.
I've made adjustments to my life and gotten my costs down so that I can life off of what people offer to me as gifts for the assistance that I give them, based on the value of what they feel it has in concert with what they have to offer. Just as when an insurance-based occupational therapy service contract provider in Grand Junction from 2005 to 2008, I wanted to provide information to all no matter what their ability to pay was. That desire lead to live education groups, which lead to my creating Lumigrate and leaving insurance-based medicine, where I was censored and restricted on what I could say to those who came and trusted me to tell them what they were seeking to learn about getting better.
As the Earth went around our Sun trip after trip, I kept bringing new information that was continually 'cutting edge', from mind, body spirit ('integrative medicine'), and was generally getting to the underlying reasons ('functional medicine').
I am writing this blog on Mother's Day 2015, and have worked consistently since Christmastime and New Years on information that is sprinkled around a few areas of the forums. I have worked to get the information I'm wanting people to link to from here literally almost every day this year (and I'd been studying and 'aware' since encountering it in August 2014).
There's a group of women, not all are mothers but most are, who also found their way to this cutting edge information which has been the work of an intriguing man in North Carolina named Steve Beddingfield, who I have now spoken with by telephone on more than one occasion, as well as many conversations via Facebook privately in addition to the almost-daily conversations in his group of now 1,700+ learners. "Students", we have been, expected to also become "teachers" and help with a ripple effect to make people aware and in my case provide the education here at Lumigrate.
He'd been asked by someone in his group if it was okay to tell others in Facebook groups about his discoveries and theories about what's causing all the unwellness of body, mind, and spirit (my integrative spin on it), and he answered that he wanted people to get the word out. Thankfully a hand full of women who had gotten into the group before I, and one after my being invited and included by Steve, rolled up their sleeves and added to the research to be shared. The gal who'd been included after I had been was 'an autism mom' who herself had the adult variety of 'this stuff that we all have now'.
Hers took the form of M.S. and was diagnosed as such. In 1995 I'd had another onset of chronic illness which, that time, presented with symptoms consistent with M.S. but thankfully I'd 'gotten onto the trail' of integrative medicine and diet changes reversed my symptoms immediately and dramatically. For a while. My symptoms went up and down, steps forwards and then, inevitably, backwards. But I persisted and I had more I did that helped than things that were 'loading' and pulling me down.
Let me bring in our onion graphic to show the way I guide people through going from their surface symptoms to finding the underlying conditions and eventually the core, the root. This information I'm wanting everyone to know is, apparently, 'the root'. And in the years before this, I'd taking Lumigrate YOUsers on the forum topics through the underlying conditions and we have surface symptoms, naturally. (Use the Search bar at Lumigrate to help you find information that pertains to you, do your own 'peeling of the onion' and get in contact with me if you wish to have my personal health information concierge services in addition to what is free and available always on Lumigrate.)
PosterGal, a mother who I consider on the young side of middle age, had symptoms that were leading her to need a wheelchair at times, and she had lost functional vision in one eye due to optic neuritis. Married to her business partner husband who was very supportive, she had been unable to work and that had affected their income. She has been foreseeing herself, now, returning to 'work' in an income-generating way, by summer but I saw she'd had less time to devote to helping admin/teach in the group at one point due to some 'work', so the occupational therapist in me always loves seeing people getting back to being occupied in ways that are meaningful and if they wish to earn income, returning to vocation is wonderful to see.
She, like the other women, had learned enough and opted to 'do' the protocol that Steve Beddingfield had come up with over the past seven-or-so-years. Like the others, there were impressive results, and it was a relatively simple and inexpensive protocol compared to what other autism / Lyme / chronic illness protocols typically entail. The protocol 'fits' with our presentation from day one at Lumigrate in 2009 of 'full barrel syndrome' and year two with 'load theory' and 'the elevator model' which I had an artist create for a visual graphic in 2012.
© Lumigrate, 2009 and 2012, respectively. Full Barrel Syndrome and Load Theory Models.
Steve has a particular concern for children and their mothers, that is clear from being in the group or from speaking with him on the telephone. In my work, I have noticed more mothers than fathers being the advocate, the proactive leader getting the resources underway and attending strategy sessions and appointments when in my outpatient clinic doing occupational therapy in insurance-based medicine, which I left in February of 2008 to help start an integrative center and create Lumigrate for providing health information I thought was needed to tell people the truth about things causing and solving health problems.
But I have known many men who have verbalized their motivation for making changed in their lifestyles was to be around to help foster the younger generations. So, while this is Mother's Day, I wanted to be clear that I recognize the enlightened men contributing to the process of improvement. After a seminar at Natural Grocers yesterday, I asked a man who had attended if he'd been to seminars before; this one was on gluten and gluten-free. He was a self-proclaimed miracle story of returning to work in the last year at 30 hours and a job standing on hard surfaces.
He had been at that 'needing a wheelchair' place after his onset of symptoms in the mid 1990s, he said. And his motivation to learn what caused it and change the chemicals and foods he was getting inside of him had to do with his children and grands. (He also gave me a recipe for essential oil mixed with olive oil as a carrier that was very helpful with chronic pain, similarly as with Steve Beddingfield saying 'I was told to give this to people', so you can look for that on Lumigrate as well if you're interested.) So many people today 'in the mix' with their contributions to making this world a place that is turning over, going to have new ways that are better, but recognizing how many challenges and how much hard work is entailed. Kudos to all.
In 2015 I have been teaching and preaching people who I 'know' through various means to take a look at this information. Most have taken it into their 'awareness level', and some went on to take some form of action. One mother who is sole support due to a deadbeat dad who does not pay the required child support, purchased one or more of the components for the protocol but is waiting until they're off for the summer from their job within the education system in case it causes any symptoms that would affect their working abilities.
Another mother thankfully got ahold of me when they were in a relapse and with symptoms similar to PosterGal's before she'd done the protocol and they were both willing to connect. Immediate action based on her having told me earlier this year I was about the only medical-related person on the Internet she trusted anymore, combined with the effective personal stories of those having successes with the protocol lead to that mother's being out and walking with her children for two miles, no less, without her cane, no less! Despite optic nerve problems affecting vision when she got ahold of me, she found the time and energy to study and get online and order what she could afford.
She'd already redone her budget after meeting me online last year in what started out as a bit of a combative conversation, but my gut told me that I should persist in letting this disabled mother living on what the system provides know that there usually are areas people can shift a little money and find things that help their symptoms.
Less than one year from that day to today, I have to say that these stories are so very rewarding. And I'm equally as touched by a very 'ostriching' mother who in the past year made a lot of improvements in learning how the world works and now is making better decisions about food quality and taking action on things that have been on Lumigrate and known / available to her since 2009. They had trusted the medical system that insurance paid for but it eventually becomes apparent how impotent that is, how harmful in the long run, and that there are other ways that take more effort on the part of the consumer (mother in this case).
While I never had a baby and children 'of my own', I was a stepmother in my mid 20s and I was also a very involved babysitter/nanny to neighbor children when I was 13 to 18; I understand how important mothers are. I like to see them getting well and helping their children to have their symptoms reverse as well no matter what the age of the mother (grandmother), or child (who might now be an adult). Does your responsibility as a parent end when they're no long of minor age? I think not. But this is up to everyone to decide, for YOU to decide. Consider gifting the things to people who will learn the protocol and want to participate, if it's something YOU think is valid.
Much is required with what comes from the information I'm presenting here; it affects our soils, our water, our air, not just our intestines and from there the brain and rest of the body. I've had many nice young men see me with the heavy, large water container I use to get reverse osmosis water at the local markets which sell "r/o water". I've helped a mother get mulch onto the garden she was putting in this spring, it was hard physical labor and we were average age 50 and were both with antagonized symptoms from the inflammation that comes from messed up neck areas being worked so hard. That was temporary, the symptoms, overall we each grew stronger and better for it.
I watched as her able-bodied son who is an adult chronologically but not developmentally, clearly, sunned himself and was glued to the electronics he appeared to be addicted to. Lifted not one finger in hours of hard work with shovels, a wheel barrow, rakes, etc. I hoped for them, wished for them, that the organic, nutritious and hopefully 'safe vegetables', due to her learning about 'this stuff I'm telling you here is of primary importance to learn" and integrating it with 'how to prepare soil for growing vegetables' would contribute to their both reversing the symptoms of body, mind, emotion / spirit dysfunction they clearly struggle with.
She, as the older and wiser one in this case, was underway following the protocol, but he had resisted every attempt I had provided for education verbally in our in-person encounters. As with anyone, I had provided them the keywords to search with my name, or Lumigrate, on the Internet to follow the information I provided that thankfully hundreds of people every week were finding. One month 1,000 reads occurred of the topic about Steve, his group, images, protocol (link, below for your convenience though it's not the easiest or best starting point for most people, you'll see me specify what's at the various links and YOU can chose which one's best for YOU.)
With her symptoms reversing and having additional energy, and her brain's symptoms reversing which enabled her to learn in different ways that when more affected with symptoms, this 'autism mom', who I call "PosterGal" on Lumigrate's topics, had her time and efforts lead to a major development around Christmastime 2014, which convinced me this was something to really tune in and focus upon. Her having said she was going to her Catholic church service for the holy time one day and then clearly being angry the next, because of the implications of 'the patent trail' and who had to have known about 'this stuff that has affected us all', got my attention. It was meant to be, I think. Thousands of people have become aware of this via my topics at Lumigrate.
I have to also credit the chance encounter I had when going to a merchant that sells the non-natural medication involved, because she was also a mother, of two young children, and wife of a man who had chronic pain and inflammation symptoms. After working full time, commuting, taking care of her family at home and putting kids to bed, she was using her science education and skills to research what could be the cause of her husband's ongoing problems which all the conventional things they'd tried using their insurance-based providers and products had not helped, so he'd recently gone off of all the patented medications.
She was 'this close' to having figured out what Steve Beddingfield's protocol and research is about, I simply 'connected the dots' in a short conversation we had at the store. She'd been brought in from over an hour away to work but that day there was a surplus of employees who were chatting and not asking me if I needed help; I recognized that this was simply meant to be that they were ignoring me and then she happened along. I created the first topic that night so that she might find it if she had time on the Internet that night and make her time more efficient. Again, a mother involved in 'this story'.
I thank the 'known' autism moms, who have been so proactive and not given up on "getting to the bottom" of what is causing this drastic rise in autism in us. Please know that many children have symptoms 'on the spectrum' and their mothers don't realize the child has what could be identified as autism spectrum. This stuff is something we all have, that's a key concept in Steve Beddingfield's work and group teaching. I have come to see the same thing, on my own, over the last seven years. And I now bring my mother into the mix.
Many adults do not see themselves as having disrupted neurological processing, but my mother, Fran Moeller, tested every student who went through our local public elementary school in approximately the 1970's decade, near the end of their third grade school year. How she got onto something so progressive at that point in time, I've never figured out. But somehow she did. And I am grateful for that. Thankfully I have a good memory and we talked a lot at home, every day, so I am able to relate this little bit of history to YOUsers. I hope it will help people process what's been going on and what's affecting us (and then what we can do about it is what I'm suggesting might come from the links I'm providing to information I set up on Lumigrate this year.)
Only ONE STUDENT, a girl in my class, showed no evidence of disruption. Our local elementary school was southwest of Denver, Colorado, in the mountains where a wide variety of people whose parents were aerospace engineers, scientists for government or business brains, pilots, etc., owned homes as well as people who "drove truck", ranched, had the tow trucks, etc. One of the first students to not get screened due to my mother's early retirement due to a new regime of administrators in the public schools who didn't like her identifying and working with the most affected students in her fourth grade class was the co-creator of the comedy cartoon show/movie business "South Park". If that helps you picture where I grew up and where some of my knowledge and opinions today 'comes from', I share that with you.
My mother was highly regarded in the community for her methods of teaching those disabled students; she believed in the basics, structure, routine, quiet and focus. Discipline. Privately I would learn that it was noted that she was overlooking things that many mothers would have been more proactive with as a mother. It seems I was born in the time of the women who were somehow mislead about their priorities when having both a family and a career.
However, overall, I have come to see how much I have been 'an apple not falling far from the tree.' And I think it was partly because of this mis-mothering on her part of me that I value the mothers (and fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends of the family, etc.) who show the dedicated and disciplined researching to figure out how to help their children who have known autism, or whatever symptoms which might not be identified as such. PosterGal being one.
PosterGal found a patent trail for many chemicals similar to the non-natural medicine in the protocol (as medicinal mushroom is the other medicine and natural) which had been studied and found to be effective for literally everything from A to Z.
To give an example of just a few of the things that start with A: autism, alcohol addiction, Alzheimer's, ALS. So I encourage mothers (and fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends of the family, etc.) no matter what age a child is -- many were missed as children and are now adults -- to put in the time, do the work, become dedicated to studying what is causing the symptoms 'of this disorder we all have in us' (with a wide variety of symptoms). And consider learning enough about Steve Beddingfield's protocol, and the information from 'the et al. gals' as I call them, who helped develop the information I've been able to select from and put on Lumigrate for YOUsers. Form your opinion. Take action. (Or not.).
Here are some links to get you started:
The topic about the pickle, which I added onto a 2009 topic from a lay writer with fibromyalgia who told us about her gardening differently due to chronic pain, fatigue, and physical impairment (Amazing Alice, a wonderful mother who I will always thank for her contributions by writing on the forums when she did.)
An easier topic for some to start with, is this one that's about how Steve's group and his research has come up with different ways for 'cleaning' and 'laundry'. While it's not as 'gross' as what's in our food, though I think that pickle picture hits a home run for us in terms of how this stuff gets inside our guts and wreaks havoc from there, it steps us through 'this is in the environment, that's part of how it gets into us on our skin or breathing and things going down our sinus drainage to the gut, etc. Yes, I find a variety of routes to present this information to our YOUsers. (I notice this topic I created about 10 days ago has already had 100 reads, which is a significant number.) I think it is one of the better places to start on 'this information' for most / average people learning. www.lumigrate.com/forum/cleaning-your-environment-and-doing-laundry-light-new-information-toxins-and-earths-environmen
The topic about algae toxins, cyanobacteria, and the gamut from A to Z of disorders: Photos included of some of Steve Beddingfield's microscopic research:
I'm putting WATER in the middle of this section of link resources because most people think of water first, and so I wanted to put other things first and make it like a burrito or sandwich. AND the water topics are cross linked -- this link is NOT the main water topic with the key information, but it takes you through seeing our history at Lumigrate of our experts who have given their time for nothing in return aside from the exposure of being seen here, and in theory to learn from each other as they worked to create the topics that I was asking them to collaborate about.
But be sure to go, if you want my suggestion, to the other topic I link to on the topic you'll go to on this link, and read over or listen to (or both) what Joseph Bender has to say about water when being interviewed at OneRadioNetwork in recent years. I really looked for a source that would help clarify why some people say distilled and some say reverse osmosis and it turns out he seems to have the best overall and uses both, recommends both and gets into the 'vitality' of water and things that can be very elaborate but he understands from his experience what is realistic for most people and states his recommendations and caveats well.
The initial topic I created about Steve and his group, in the Internet, activist, Facebook forum, rather off the beaten track which underscores that this is a very evolving theory and group and you're basically seeing it through my eyes as one of the first hundred or so people who was privy to the group's information. Decide for yourself if you find the research from these ill but improving laymen /people valid.
I recommend you cruise down to the comments, way down, where I created a comment in May of 2015 and kept adding to it, of key photographs, explanations, and conversation highlights.
You willl find TONS of Steve's images there, which help explain what you see in the pickle picture ... like this:

NOTE: Horizontal gene transfer is shown in one of The History Channel episodes (focusing on insects) on the show Ancient Aliens. AA appears to me to be a major 'pace car' of the disclosure program and what the people running THE show, so to speak, want people to know -- initially those wanting H2, now it's the major audience of History.... dots, connect them!
Since Steve had the Morgellon's disease form of this stuff we all have, here's the link to the Morgellon's topic I've added onto recently so people finding their way based on that A to Z disorder starting with M will find their way to this emerging and important information (in my opinion). It turns out he helped me to see that I had symptoms onset in 1980 of Morgellon's (cystic acne, he has found and teaches, is cyanobacteria, and I had been in a swimming hole just north of downtown Fort Collins early in the summer of 1980 if memory serves.
I am positive of the date of the 13 lesions/ cysts that appeared (which became lesions due to my trying to pop them, I had a wedding to attend with 'everyone' from growing up on the second weekend in July and the breakout occurred during the week prior. My dear friend has looked to see if there were any photos of me but I recall being horrified about my skin which never had acne and was hiding from cameras.) I had created a topic about Morgellon's in 2013 when I learned of it, and so added onto it to help get people directed to the information, if they wished and found it valid, that Steve Beddingfield has gotten out there on Facebook which I was/ am the first to put on the overall Internet via this website.
The topic about Pam Killeen's diet information, and addictions, and moods. There are two place on Lumigrate at this time where Pam Killeen's work is either cited or spotlighted by me. I created a new Comment on the addiction / biochemical and restoration of functional wellness thread which is at this link:
and Pam Killeen's work was included (and linked to) in a very good overview that I provide from a website with a lot of supportive links, which is on this link in the Lumigrate forum on mind/brain information, on a thread about mood disorder, blood sugar, etc.: www.lumigrate.com/forum/silent-diseases-mood-disorders-and-blood-sugar. It's an excellent overview and worth the time to go and read for background information. Essentially the information that Steve Beddingfield's theory brings into the mix helps to explain why people have had all these things going awry within the body which lead to symptoms that vary from physical to mental and emotional / behavioral symptoms, even spiritual -- directly and indirectly.
Thank you for reading this blog, and being a YOUser at Lumigrate. I hope you find this of value, and if you wish to contact me, find information about that at the home page, about me is the last of the three 'about' topics there and I update that when my contact information changes as I know how to do that, cannot figure out how to change things on the 'contact us' tab sometimes. The website's email was filled up and I've not had the time to properly address that. 99% was spamming from computers operated by people and organizations which are essentially the vandals of the Internet. So I find ways to work around.
Maybe my symptoms will reverse and I'll become a whiz kid with website workings and other things hi-tech. Don't hold your breath, but I do know that I've always marveled at how much our bodies are designed to not fail, to thrive and survive. And I thank my mother and her mother for the tenacity that I inherited from them, or also learned from them being the two I bonded with (in the case of my grandmother until she left when I was four).
And to all who, like me, have family members with symptoms of body, mind, emotion / behavior, and spirit, even if they're older than you, I encourage proactivity on trying to make them aware of this information and perhaps we can heal systems by having everyone in the system, or enough of them, learning and doing differently.
Finally, I want to thank all who have been supporting my 2015 new direction for outreach, education, and showing people the way -- lighting the path to health and well-being in person -- as "Mardy PopIns' / Mardy Poppins. I pop in, stay a while, more ... less. Due to this hitting the radar screen just as I started my first moments in this new 'role' as Mardy Poppins / Mardy PopIns, I have had to 'do double time' and that means sometimes the schedule wasn't exactly what I thought it was going to be. And the budget/ funds.
So I have, like everyone, continued to grow and deepen, learn and teach, and I simply look forward to the future and what I will reflect on as an even older woman, with more wisdom than today, and see what came from whatever information I presented as your personal concierge whether I was under your roof, in your office, or working via the phone, computer, or otherwise in person.

I chose this photo because Ronda did an admirable job as a career mother, from what I could tell. She's about my age, and she caught this photo of me sitting on her dock back when my hair was just starting to turn grey. She had others that she thought were also worth forwarding to me where she said they showed my wisdom as a teacher, essentially. I appreciated that. It's not so easy sometimes going from one phase to the next in life. Maiden to maid. Maid to crone. Thankfully my hair's health has returned once off of the patented medications that overall helped me short-term in my reversing of symptoms of a complex case of chronic illness, and it's now the longest it has been since my young adulthood. My theory is that we somewhat return to our roots as we get to that last phase of life, if we're one that is still on Earth by that point in life, not dying earlier due to accident or chronic illness, this 'stuff we all have'. Cheers. Onward and upward!
