Medical update

Sawadee Khrap

On the 15th I reported about my problem with Madiplot – stopped using it  but since then, the Kidney Doctor had me try a Calcium Channel Blocker, “Concor”  as an alternative to control the BP – BUT it proved worse than the Madiplot.   Both were reported in a Medical study to cause  Parkinsonism side effects.   So I’ve now stopped all meds except Valsartan,  reducing it from 80 to 40mg daily,  with great success. 

ANXIETY was found to be my major problem, brought on or emphasized by the drugs.  Most all of the Parkinsonism has gone and the Neurologist has scheduled me for a later 2 month checkup. 

Still dealing with the “anxiety”  however by using the smallest dosage of Valium possible to curb it when it flairs up and my BP rises out of control.   I know Valium is called “solid alcohol” and as a alcoholic should be avoided, so I will therefore seek for a anxiety “controller drug” as apposed to the Valium anxiety suppressor narcotic. 

Increasing my walking exercises and then starting Meditation classes at Wat Suan Dok Temple will be the first line of new defenses – that should really help and putting my trust in God or MY Higher Power to  protect and guide me through the transition from drug control to Faith Control.

CO poisoning–Medical Update

Sawadee Khrap

Last October, 2019,  I had a extreme poisoning from a leakage in my car exhaust.  Sick for 3 days, took about week to get over the effects.   But yesterday a friend stated that he had seen a dramatic change in my health since that time.       And guess what ?

Just discovered several articles explaining the possible results of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. “Parkinson-ISM” !!!     all the symptoms and behaviors.   And many times appearing 1-2 years after the incident.   Couple this with the same effects that can be caused by Madiplot (BP med) and I am the prefect candidate.     For anyone interested, comment me and I will send you the article’s links.

I have stopped the Madiplot for 4 days now and most of the symptoms are greatly reduced or almost gone.  Reports state that this detox can take up to 4 months, so I’ll just hang with it and see.

But so far,  Good News,  and I am feeling much better.

Medical Update

Sawadee Khrap

Today is amazing – woke with blood pressure at 136/73, clear headed, sore throat gone, cough almost gone, voice strength returning, shakes/nerve twitching greatly reduced, and seem to have my appetite back.  I just changed from the BP medication from Omersartan to Valsartan.

For the past 8 months I have been taking 2 TBs ground flaxseeds mixed with applesauce daily to increase the Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio in my diet to help clear out the arteries.   About a week ago I discovered that the BP readings between both arms had almost equalized, possibly indicating that the arteries were clearing.   I was also  taking Omersartan to control the BP , and it seemed to be working, except the side effects were getting worse and the control was lessening.   Two days ago I switched the BP medication to Valsartan, a less potent version of the ‘Sartan’ family of drugs,   WOW !!

I am extremely confident that including Flaxseed into my diet has given me that success – for most of my life I was heavy in a Omega 6 fatty acid diet.   Animal vs plant diet,  resulting in blocked arteries and my need for stents.   I had tried using Valsartan before but the blockage was too far along and too much of the drug was needed for control – so the need for a stronger version – Omersartan.    BUT, the flaxseed seems to be working and is now allowing me to use the best BP med for less possible damage to the kidneys.

Great news and looking forward seeing it continue.  Healing, is always possible but it’s the SPIRTUAL healing that is required first and the body’s healing will follow. I am trying to use my blog to document my experience here.  FORGIVENESS is the key.

Corona Virus threat?

Sawadee Khrap

How am I going to confront this crisis?    Just received the health report for Thailand from the US Embassy – 19 infections and spreading fast.

Jesus taught:  “Caesar’s is Caesar’s, God’s is God’s and what you bind on earth is bound in heaven.  Your JUDGEMENTs are WHAT you control and bind or relinquish to God or Caesar.  Caesar being the symbol standing for the world or “the dream of separation”.  

I am the “Character” (Frank) in the dream but the “Dreamer” (Christ-the Unity of the Son of God) has given me the power to bind the dream through my  judgements.   The “middle path” is to look, listen and do not judge.  LEAVE all judgements to Christ – just follow the narrow “Middle” path to the reality of God’s Creation – “SELF”.  

As Jesus said:

“ Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged:and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”

First I need to remember that the DREAMER is examining the thought, from each one’s   perspective, “Am I separated from God and not LOVE itself and therefore only through attack I can get LOVE back ?”  

How I, Frank (the Character in the dream),  reacts will determine the path the dream takes.  Will my judgement be one of seeing attack (a call for love) OR Love itself OR the middle path of  realizing that it is only an illusion and do not judge allowing the Dreamer to decide with  the Holy Spirit.    So this can ONLY mean that any response should be one of GIVING LOVE or that what I am seeing is an illusion needing no response at all.   Is this  mental masturbation / spiritual bullshit ?    I don’t think so !!     This is how I should live my life.   How does it work, at a practical level,  to guide me through life’s experiences or crisis?  

Consider also, Buddhism.  Buddha teaches that to relieve suffering one first has to give up all attachments and the final one is the attachment to “self”.    Enlightenment is the recognition of “SELF”, free from all attachments, conflicts and limitations.    What is an attachment BUT a JUDGMENT ?  Or more simply a need or desire to change reality by judging something or someone of value or not.   He also espoused to follow the “middle path”.

So how do I plan to apply it to the “Corona Virus” scare existing today ?

First off understanding that “Frank” IS A CHARACTER IN THE DREAM and I won’t deny that.    Secondary,  I won’t deny that I have accepted common criteria  about the world (judgements) as TRUE,  which I witnessed to by believing I am living here.  I won’t deny that this is a “dream threat”.    So considering all that, I will react specially to the Corona Crisis by:

  1. Realizing I have NO problem NOW.
  2. All reports are just hearsay so far, I am not directly affected NOW.
  3. I know of no one NEAR me that is infected.
  4. I actually have NO problem UNTIL I am infected.
  5. I will take all necessary precautions to prevent  getting infected – hand washing and masks.  I will not TEMPT God to save me from any of my un-beliefs.
  6. I acknowledge that others have judged an attack is occurring and I can offer LOVE by prayers that they realize their ONENESS with God and attack is impossible.
  7. Maintain my peace, as best I can,  through prayer and meditation. Judging not and offering only LOVE where I am presented a lesson where I have made an error or judgment in the past or have been asked to give LOVE.

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of
good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”    (Matthew 9:20)

Thy FAITH has made thee whole !!!. 

What happens tomorrow will be tomorrow’s problem – Living one day at a time.  I will not let the past interfere or determine the future.  I rest in God NOW.  I will NOT live in WHATIF’s

Air-Quality Chiang Mai

Sawadee Khrap

Got to thank Team for this tip – last year he told me about the 3M filter sheets that you can put in your aircons and clean the air in the room.  They work excellently – 350 baht each pkg. and I change every month in heavy polluted air.   One filter fits 2 aircons for me.

I ordered mine from Lazada OnLine and got fast shipment.

Chiang Mai cannabis clinic

Thanks Ed for the heads up – Click on the image for details

I received this comment from Ed :

I went there today…First of all, it is open only on Wednesday from 1pm to 4 or 4:30. Spent over 30 minutes just finding the location as it is not priority for the people in the main area where you have to register so that you can be seen in the clinic and pay your bill when it’s all done. I went with a Thai lady to help me and they told us to go to several different locations before we finally got the straight poop; they didn’t even know at the desk where I registered.
The article above is highly misleading to say the least, about the number of medical staff and the number of doctors…they must have been talking about the staff for the entire hospital.
If you plan on going, you definitely need a Thai person to assist you. English is not spoken, it is a Thai hospital that caters to lower income Thais (my bill was 100 baht after speaking to the doctor). If you think you’d like to go, you go first to building #3 where you need to register (need passport). Then, you go up the escalaor to the second floor and after you land, turn left and keep an eye out for an area on the right side that leads to a balcony. When you get to the balcony, turn left and the clinic is the last office at the end. The Cannabis “clinic” is one of three rooms in that office.
I waited close to 2 hours. There was only 1 doctor, and she does not speak very much, if any, English. She has to fill out a questionairre, so you need to coach your Thai assistant with what ailments you hope to alleviate…I went in for insomnia and anxiety. There were 3 nurses attending mainly to administrative duties. Only the one doctor.
The bottom line is that they were out of stock on “medicine” (I don’t know exactly what I will get, but I imagine CBD oil) and they are going to call me when they can provide to me in roughly 3 weeks.
There were 2 people in line ahead of me and maybe 2 more behind; a far cry from the 22 the article claims for the opening. The first was another falang with his wife or gf, and he was talking to the doctor for
the better part of an hour, and the doctor did not arrive until about 1:30. The lady in front of me was around 20 minutes.
Parking was a bitch and we ended up parking at least 1/4 mile from the hospital.
I have no idea what the cost of the medication will be, how much I will receive, or if it will help my ailments.

Ed

PS. I went there with Simon and did not have this experience – ours was excellent and attentive – got right in and the Dr I met spoke English – but the clinic was for PAIN control first and they told me that they did not expect the CBD oils or Traditional Thai Herbal Dr for at least 2-3 more months.

New Year’s Resolution

Sawadee Khrap

What is the difference between modem medicine and foods?  Last time I visited the doctor I was told that it would be impossible to eat enough greens to change my artery blockage, BUT I could take this 10 mg pill  to lower my blood pressure and solve my problem.   Sounds like magic to me.   The achievements of modern science.  Humanity trumpets over Reality.

But is doesn’t really make sense.   What  I ate and the actions I took  determined my present status,  high blood pressure and all.  I have to look at it honestly.

Did I eat the foods necessary to maintain a healthy system?  Did I exercise regularly?   Did I get the necessary sleep or did I have sleeping problems?  HONESTLY !!!   NO, of courses not.  I ate what I wanted and liked.  I drank what I wanted, not caring what it was really affecting.  I concentrated on changing reality to fit my desires without even considering the stress that would  create.   And when I felt the damaging effects of detritus material in my veins  I rushed to the medicine cabinet for a quick fix with a  cover up pill.  And it worked – getting me to where I am now. 

I have tempted God in every way and expected Him to send down His angels to save me from crashing on the rocks below – sounds like the same test Jesus took in the desert.  But I didn’t answer “Get behind me Satan”  I plowed right head and blamed God for not taking away my afflictions.

Today is a good time for Frank to begin his recovery by cultivating some basic habits, eating  only good foodstuffs, drinking only good liquids, getting proper exercise and sleep, and above all quite trying to change the world (forgive and reduce stress).

I do thank God that His help has always been provided, sometimes in the form of magic, to help me along my way.  That 10 mg pill will lower my blood pressure until I can find the right combination of proper foods to clean out my plugged arteries.  Right now I am trying to increase the Omega-3 / Omega-6 ratio by increasing plant  vs animal foods., – by adding 2 oz. of ground flaxseed in 3 Oz. applesauce every morning as breakfast.   Actually going back to what Elohim told me what He provide in Creation – “Plants and seeds will be my meat”.

God Bless    Ciao

Jerry, a friend of mine , living in Dok Kaew Garden assisted living facility on McKean hospital Senior Center grounds showed me this beautiful area near his room.   What a wonderful place to meditate and relax.

Just finished watching a video on NetFlix “Game Changer” on YouTube.  Wonderful movie showing the detritus effects of meat and dairy products on the blood and wellness of the human body .

But I  also found the challenger to the video “ Game Changers DEBUNKED” on YouTube.  Listened to them both but still I will go meat less.

They reminded me of what was said in Genesis 1 creation story.  “I have given you every plant with seeds on the face of the earth and every tree that has fruit with seeds.  This will be your food. “  Has science caught up with the Bible?

Check out these very strange sayings attributed to Jesus in “The Gospel of Thomas” such as:

(11) Jesus says: “This heaven will pass away, and the (heaven) above it will pass away. And the dead are not alive, and the living will not die.  In the days when you consumed what was dead, you made it alive. When you are in the light, what will you do?  On the day when you were one, you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?”

(56) Jesus says: “Whoever has come to know the world has found a corpse.  And whoever has found (this) corpse, of him the world is not worthy.”

(70) Jesus says: “If you bring it into being within you, (then) that which you have will save you. If you do not have it within you, (then) that which you do not have within you [will] kill you.”

(108) Jesus says: “Whoever will drink from my mouth will become like me. I myself will become he, and what is hidden will be revealed to him.”

AND at the last supper (Passover Seder) Jesus broke bread and said “this is my body” and took wine “this is my blood” and “do this in remembrance of me.”    Jesus did not use the lamb, the sacrificial lamb meat, present at the Seder dinner  -BUT – he chose the bread.  Exactly as stated in Genesis 1 – Elohim’s designated food.

Also notice that later in Genesis 4, Yahweh preferred Abel’s offering of choice parts of the firstborn animals of his flock and rejected Cain’s crops from the land. (in the illusion)

“And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.”  Genesis 14:18, KJV

The “Most High God”  was Elohim

“For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Yahweh sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:”    Psalm 110:4 and Hebrews 7:21

Everything points to Elohim’s Creation and the food for humans he supplied.  I ,for one, can testify that since I have stopped eating meat products and started juce’ing , I do feel lighter, more energic, and intend to continue.  A good indicator of my success will be any lowering of my blood pressure hopefully indicating cleaner arteries.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress as I intend to have a Sonogram done in 6 months to see is there really is a difference from my last test last month..

God Bless   Ciao
