What a Mother Can Do About the Flu

A really bad flu seems to be going around. It is going around in Austin, with kids and with adults. It is going around the rest of the country. I hear it is going around in other countries. It is a bad one.

I also hear (rumors and televised news is close to the same these days) that the CDC flu vaccine doesn’t stop it. This is quite possible because how the flu vaccine is only a guess at the top 3 or 4 strains out of many many. I also heard a strong, middle aged adult say she wasn’t going to get a flu vaccine because she was afraid she would get autism. Well, neither the mercury implicated in autism nor the aluminum implicated in giving babies strokes is likely to hurt an adult. I’m not taking any stand on flu vaccines for adults. Discuss with a competent wellness professional.

Whether or not you and your family are into flu vaccines, still, there is much that can and should be done to stay healthy.

Washing hands is very important. In our century the mass of people discovered how important hand washing was, but then we are forgetting. We are with so many people! Have they washed their hands? Have they touched something with sticky hands? Most importantly, little children, crammed in with many other little children from different homes — this is an artificial and dangerous situation. So professional childcare experts are very big on handwashing. And table washing. And door knob washing. Knowlegable parents will also want to be informed if a plague is circulating through a classroom. Is there a way your child could stay home in such weeks?

All of this relates to learning disabilities and learning problems, because studies show that children who more health insults, even these comparatively minor ones, do less well in school. One study even showed that children with dirty fingernails, tended to have colds, and thus miss school, and thus did more poorly and were often thought to be less bright. More of their energy was going to physical wellness instead of learning.

Dr. Ensign will share his interview. This is a re-run from 2009. Notice, he favors real hand washing over the alcohol sauce, but public schools have often made that the only option.

Excitotixin Glutamate : New Key to Learning Problems

Dr. Russel L. Blaylock MD provides information on glutamate as an excito-toxin. Yes, you knew that Accent and meat tenderizer was to be avoided, but did you know how pervasive glutamate is, in the American diet? Did you know that it is often mis-labelled or hidden in food? (We do tell you what to look for.) Did you know That is causes learning problems and anxiety/depression?
Also included, is a discussion of how we know, how to tell if something is scientifically true and what passes for science.

Why is this all good news? Because if you know what is poisoning your child — or you — then you can stop it! Of course, it is not good news that we are poisoning ourselves, but it is great news that we can do something about it easily. Stories that tell us to lower our expectations, figuring that God had simply put some limitations on us, is just not right. God wants total well-being for us. God didn’t bring the brokenness to the world; God created the world good. It is his gracious gift to teach us how to align with and use that world properly.

The Truth Will Out! How GSB Brings You the Truth for Your Family’s Health, Prosperity, Happiness, and Holiness

It is astonishing to see, in this year, how pervasive and mordant and well received utter lies are. IN the realm of food and education it is the same. The Great Shalom is here to bring you the best, in Biblical Faith, mother level health and education practices, and peeks into real science.

Science, unlike the Word of God, does change. Good science is modest in acknowledging that it can deal only with the empirical and temporal. It is further humble in that it knows it must be replicated, as it is a probablistic venture. Further, it expects to be build upon. What counts as our best science today is that which is in a peer reviewed scientific journal.

The next couple of we are going to take a dive into research on MSG. You will be surprised. This knowledge will help your children who have ADD, ADHD, or learning problems of many kinds. It will also help older people who are afraid of losing their cognitive powers and memory. Come back the next two weeks for that.

Today, we talk about how I got into this and my perspective about how science and revelation work together. We also talk about the role and work of The Great Shalom Broadcast.

Please be part of it all!
