BLACK PEPPER

Black pepper is a medicinal spice. It must be used as directed. Excess or overuse can cause a burning effect. Used properly it is phenomenally healthy.

Black pepper is an antioxidant curbing free radicals. It is an anti-inflammatory agent. The potassium content in black pepper lowers blood pressure. It is an antibacterial. Ground and used sparingly as a face rub (not scrub) black pepper exfoliates and removes dead skin and reduces acne. Because of its antibacterial qualities it aids digestion, reduces bad breath & flatulence (gas) and prevents some gastronomical disease also relieving colic, constipation and diarrhea. Its piperine content acts as a mild laxative. Piperine definition; noun. a crystalline insoluble alkaloid that is the active ingredient of pepper, used as a flavoring and as an insecticide. The vitamin C content in black pepper works as an antibiotic fighting tooth decay and diminishing cold symptoms such as coughing and other respiratory disorders. Its combined properties ease congestion, cleanse the intestinal tract, stimulates urination and sweating, removes uric acid from the blood and aids the production and distribution of skin pigmentation.

Tuna improves eye sight & lessens inflammation.

VINEGAR

a vin

As far back as Hippocrates vinegar in water with honey was used to treat the symptoms of the common cold. One of today’s popular recipes is 1 tbsp of vinegar in 8 oz water with 2 tbsp of honey and an option of 1 tbsp lemon juice served hot or on ice. The Probiotics and alkaline content in vinegar reduce the symptoms of the common cold and allergic sinus conditions diminishing mucous and congestion. The alkaline content kills viruses. During a cold or sinus allergy attack drink 16 ounces of the water, vinegar and honey mixture daily. Vinegar is an antibacterial. As a medicinal option vinegar regulates blood sugar by using the anticlerical action of the acetic acid it contains. It lessons the possibility of the development of pre-diabetic conditions.

Vinegar’s acetic acid lowers blood pressure by eliminating cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides aiding in the prevention of coronary artery disease (the thickening, hardening and narrowing of arteries) which leads to heart attacks. Vinegar is an anti-oxidant. The enzymes in vinegar’s acetic acid detoxifies and stimulates the liver altering the glycolysis procedure and allowing proper functioning and lymphatic drainage by binding together with toxic materials. The acetic acid and Probiotics in vinegar aids in digestion by the break down and utilization of starches, nutrients and vitamins. It actually improves the natural Probiotic and HDL content in the stomach and intestinal tract.

The alkaline enzymes and Probiotics in vinegar balance the bodies acid-base levels (PH) which needs to lean toward the alkaline at 7.35% to 7.45%. Proper PH levels eliminates acid reflux. The acetic acid in vinegar kills candida which is a fungal yeast which often appears as an infection on the skin and mucous membranes like the mouth, throat, vagina and the quick under the nails. Candida can cause bad breath, sugar cravings and fatigue.

Vinegar has prevented DNA mutation and is thought to be a cancer preventative. The manganese in vinegar provides good bone structure restricting osteoporosis. The combined components in vinegar strengthen metabolic activity providing energy. 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar should be ingested in a diluted form daily for optimal benefits to be obtained. 3 tbsp of vinegar in 16 oz of warm water used as a final hair rinse, corrects the PH balance, exfoliates dead skin and prevents dandruff. Its compounds kill bacterial pathogens, viruses and other contaminants. Leaving it in helps long hair to stay untangled.

Do not drink straight vinegar. It is too strong undiluted. It may be used directly on greens such as spinach and others in moderation ( 1 tbsp or less per serving.) With water, olive oil and seasonings it makes a wonderful green salad dressing.

Do not put vinegar directly on skin or hair. It is too strong undiluted. Do not use straight undiluted vinegar as a mouth wash. It will damage, even remove the enamel from teeth.

Remember vitamin deficiency causes pain, muscle weakness & osteoarthritis.

Bionics AKA Cybernetics

 

 

a bionic 2a boinic 3

Biological neural network  “Bionics” is the science which combines biological organs to technological interfaces. This direct interface technique uses a BNN (biological neural network. Some aspects of this technology are not new. The first heart pacemaker was implanted in 1960.  The older technology used electrodes to stimulate and manipulate existing biological organs. The pacemaker uses electrodes giving the heart muscle a mild electrical shock to stimulate a more consistent heart rhythm. The latest advancements use the direct neurological interface.  Technology has reached a level of sophistication allowing electrodes to be directly interfaced to human nerve tissue.  This direct interface uses what is known as biological neural networking. BNN has the ability to respond to thought. This process is known as open loop. It has the ability to stimulate feedback, known as closed loop. An individual who has a BNN closed loop artificial limb will have feeling in the limb. Imagine an artificial leg allowing the user to feel when he steps on a pebble.The Bnn is interfaced in the different methods of: interface to biology, biology to interface and biology to interface to biology.

 

Input-open loop BNN is a process called interface to biology and is the use of an electronic device to stimulate existing nerves. This is the first component of a BNN  interface and the simplest form of bionics. This is the oldest and most tested of bionic applications. The first example of of this procedure is the pacemaker. Devices have been implanted to stimulate hearing, sight, bladder control and breathing.

 

The second example of interface biology allows people without sight to see. Many blinding disorders are due to photoreceptor or outer retinal degeneration or destruction.  Lab experiments and clinical trials have been done in blind patients.  Results show that in an otherwise totally blind eye, controlled electrical stimulation in patterns can produce vision compatible with limited mobility and can generate shapes in the forms of large letters. These patients also often describe seeing color and direct movement.

 

A third example is for use in urogenital control. This is extremely useful for individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). The function of this type of prosthesis is to aid in bladder control.

 

The last example is the breathing pacemaker. These are designed to improve the life of people with ailments such as: SCI or disease, including quadriplegia,  central alveolar hypoventilation, decreased day or night ventilator drive (i.e. sleep apnea, Ondine’s Curse, brain stem injury or disease, including co-morbidity of hiccups, diaphragm myoclonus and diaphragmatic/phrenic nerve stimulator that provides support for patients with chronic ventilator insufficiency whose diaphragm, lungs and phrenic nerves have residual function.

 

Output-open loop is the process of biology to interface allowing the subject to interact directly with the device. The emergence of this technology involves allowing the patient to interact directly with a computer or electronic device. This is the second component of a BNN interface and is connected primarily with human output.  The major output that researchers are working to integrate is communication.The main purpose of this process is to provide speech where it would otherwise be impossible.

 

Input and out-closed loop is the process of biology to interface biology. This process is used in artificial limbs. These devices incorporate the other two types of interfaces into one technological miracle.  This system receives signals from the neurological system and processes those signals into movement, then sends a sensory signal back to the biological neural system that movement was successful. These actions stimulate actual feeling in some cases subjects with severed spinal columns have been able to move both legs. Much once thought impossible grows more possible by the moment.
