A Work in Progress
NOTE: This version is
the complete text of the e-book version.
A health dictionary for everyone and anyone with an open mind. With short or longer definitions and possible recommendations and/or advice. Possibly slightly cynical and hopefully humourous at times but at the same time very serious. You have been warned. It is essential that the reader of this little book explores and researches for his or herself all the notions herein presented and accept nothing at face value.
The author is a professional teacher of the English Language and has spent nearly 25 years of his working years concerned with and teaching survival skills to students of all ages with 'disabilities'. He is now semi-retired and has no vested interests except to maintain his continued good health so that he may inform others of his sixty-odd years of the serious findings from his research in all disciplines of knowledge.
The author is also a poet, essayist, original musician and reasonable artist and has been writing since he was 12 years old.
This work is written in good faith.

This work is dedicated to the thousands of people, past, present and possible future who have or will have your best health interests at heart and who may have lost their living, their inventions, their discoveries or their lives in pursuance of that interest because it was not for profit.
It is also dedicated to the many others whose persistence for discovery has given me the data and incentive to complete this work, although they can never be mentioned in toto. Researching further the differing ideas presented here will reveal them. Bon journée.
...only Doctor (or one of his comrades-in-arms) can heal you. Doctor is a sort of 'one-armed bandit' with two arms. One is the cash flow for himself and the other is your lack of health. Peter K. Sharpen
Heresy is other people telling you that you are a heretic. Peter K. Sharpen
Adaptation: The constant changes that occur in life-forms as the environment of the planet changes naturally and after Man's parasitic intervention. An ongoing process forever. Thus species are 'born' and 'die' as it were. (see microzymas). This is not the same as Darwinian Evolution.
Addiction: A word that has never been clearly defined to the satisfaction of all those people who use it to refer to an apparent bodily need to continue imbibing something that may usually be detrimental to their health. Personally, I believe that the word is mis-used and if it can not be properly defined is of no further use in discussions. Addiction is usually referred to a condition where the body cannot perform without it; usually referred to as a 'substance' (and then follows 'substance abuse'), normally regarding drugs of some kind. Please refer to habit.
A.I.D.S.: Probably the most horrific scam (after vaccination) invented by the Human animal. It involves all the worst elements of planetary 'science'; lies, cheating, plagiarism, 'germ' theory, tests, propaganda, the list is sickeningly depressive and endless. For the 'diagnosed' it is probably a death sentence ( if on AZT or suchlike) or a life of perpetual misery and being ostracised. The acronym apparently stands for Auto Immune Disease Syndrome or somesuch; one is so sickened by it all. The notion that peculiar sexual behaviours (originally) resulted in the acquiring of several individual dis-eases specific to a certain 'life-style', have now become One Disease. It relies on 'tests' (which see). The whole anti-body theory is turned upon its head (if it were true anyway but that is not the point here) and all scientific validity, integrity and credibility falls to its death from the cathedral tower of 'modern medicine' as in an anti-hero horror movie. There is no such thing as A.I.D.S. or anything else. A devastation, as I said, devoid of any Human integrity (which see) that once might have been. In a word, not true. Supposedly, now 'caused' by the HIV 'virus'. (which see)
Alchemy: The precursor of 'modern' chemistry.
Alchemists: Usually noted for their preoccupation with producing concoctions for turning base metals into gold without success. 'Modern' chemists have since turned their ill conceived 'medical' concoctions successfully into gold for their living, however.
Allergies: An allergy is a reaction to a foreign substance that a body can not deal with resulting at its worst in death. There is no question that certain people are allergic to certain foreign proteins (in fact we all are in some way and it would be interesting to try to find out exactly why but this is probably for the 'too hard' basket for the 'medical profession'). Having said that, however, allergies have undergone a huge increase over the last century and I have seen this many times in my profession as a school-teacher (especially those labelled 'Special Needs' where I have spent nearly twenty five years working with such students). There is positively a reason for the increase and that is vaccination (well documented but you need to search). Since any vaccination, let alone mass vaccinations, allergic reactions are now being seen that have never appeared before. One needs to seriously look at the ingredients of a so-called 'vaccine' to realise the filth that they are injecting into healthy humans without their consent at this surgical procedure.
Allopathic Medicine: So-called 'modern medicine' (which see)
Alternative medicine: This expression is another topsy-turvy or inverted concept. It usually refers to health-healing that flies in the face of 'modern medicine'. In fact, it is 'modern medicine' which is the 'alternative medicine' since natural methods of healing came thousands of years before the surgical, radiative and pharmaceutical treatments (or slash-burn-poison as I prefer to call it) in vogue at present. 'Modern medicine' started with the acquisition of the false 'germ' theory (which see) and in its pursuance therein lies Man's inevitable downfall.
Anatomy: Anatomy is the detailed study of any flora or fauna provided by Nature. In itself it is a perfectly valid human activity. However, there are provisos. Nothing should be studied without reference to everything else and the subject (flora or fauna) under anatomical process must not be to the detriment of that subject. To 'name the parts' for descriptive purposes is valid; however, the drawing of conclusions for the purposes of anything but that, is open to question and cannot be based on 'theories' that are not holistic. (which see)
Anti-bacterial: Any substance that purportedly destroys bacteria. Since there can be no 'bad' (or 'good' for that matter, as Nature is not moralistic) bacteria and that bacteria (which see) are the creation of a living organism, they will destroy all of them. If ingested these anti-bacterials destroy the healing and digestive nature of bacteria or they are a waste of money if you use them to clean everything you come into contact with in the belief that bacteria 'invade' anything or are potentially dangerous, or are even 'out there'.
Anti-biotic: A manufactured anti-bacterial potion which destroys a healing process. Originally derived from a form of fungus (the last stage of returning to original elements, or deorganisation) by some-one called Alexander Flemming (or Fleming, the spelling is not important but the devastation is) but now probably manufactured from goodness knows what. Many more of these Shamanic/witch doctor potions exist, including the 'sulphur' drugs and all are to be seriously avoided at the cost to your health.
Anti-body: No such thing. Apparently part of an immune system (which see) which also does not and can not exist. A spurious 'something' that is apparently created due to the 'invasion' of a spurious and non-proven 'germ' that sets itself to destroy you. (Reminds me of the view that all aliens from outer space are 'bad' and therefore must be shot before one has even see the greens of their eyes).
Animal testing: Testing Human products upon animals is yet another heinous crime perpetrated upon Nature's other creatures by the animal Man. It is indulged in mainly for the purposes of 'testing' products to be used for Human purposes and includes both cosmetic and 'medical' abominations. The suffering of these so-called 'lesser' creatures is only determined by the blatant egotism that Man is a 'superior' animal, which he certainly is not, at least in my view. The notion is purely an egotistical one.
The horrors and desecration of any particular fauna (or flora) is unashamedly diabolical. It is based, in a 'medical' sense on the 'germ' theory and also on the theory that Man is somehow 'better' than other animals and therefore these creatures can be treated with contempt and potentially poisonous materials with impunity. It is also based on the false notion that 'some' animals are 'similar' to Humans and can thereby be expended for the sake of the 'higher' creature. This is particularly with reference to mice and rats, who by demonisation have become called 'vermin', something not worthy of life for their own sake but useful because they may have similar characteristics (in some way, apparently) to Humans. An elementary course in comparative embryology would be of use to these people. Only Humans can breed something to die. If Humans are a 'higher' life-form in this matter, then I, for one, will quite happily disown whatever the Human is supposed to represent. If this were the conception of any sort of 'god', then there are places, I assume, to which this 'god' may demise and fairly soon.
Man is not a 'superior' (in the sense the word is used) creature, far less than some, as is well recognised by a few of us, Nature's 'children'.
Artificial sweeteners: Sometimes deadly but more often causing long-term ill-health; some more than others. If a product hypes 'sugar free', or 'low calorie' you can rest assured that it contains these manufactured anti-nutrients and patent poisons. I use all words advisedly and with care. Avoid at all costs to your health.
Art of living: The art of living is to stay as healthy as possible, even after perhaps being compromised from birth by vacinations/inoculations over which you had no control, more is the pity.
The road is a perilous one and at every turn some-one else will try to direct you, whatever their motives. If at all possible (given that some human creatures are not able, for one reason or another) it is your personal responsibility to remain healthy. Never take what anyone says at face value, if you do so, you relinquish your personal integrity and possibly that of others.
Bacteria: electro-chemical elements that are created in the body as scavengers for material that is or is not required for the self-healing processes to conserve life. They are never to the detriment of the body and should not be destroyed by anti-biotics and other drugs, (natural or unnatural), radiation and most surgery. They are anaerobic, which means that they exist without air; therefore they can not exist outside the body.
To do their 'job' they require a slightly alkaline environment, therefore they can not be demonstrated outside of a living body (thereby being unable to be 'seen' under a microscope). The by-product of gastric digestion is the creation of some acid. If food is too acid, or the environment has become too acidic, the over-production of acid by the bacteria results in what is called 'heartburn' or 'indigestion'. It can only successfully be alleviated by an alkaline substance such as bicarbonate of soda in a small glass of water. Patent medicines contain other substances because bicarbonate of soda is a natural product and can not (at present) be patented. See Microzymas.
Blood: Blood is liquid tissue. It is the fluid which carries (under the action of the heart) nutrients around the body of a living creature. It also distributes toxic material from vaccinations and other injections. (which see)
Brown paper bag: A recepticle made from the manufactured pulp of a perfectly good, once living, tree which is coloured brown and is often used for the voiding of stomach contents when reading or hearing about how marvellous 'modern medicine' works and how wonderful Doctor is. Pass me one please!
Calories: As far as I understand (or understood) the basic science I was taught at school when I was a little person, a calorie is a measurement, for example, the raising of one value to another. According to what I read on many food products, the calorie now seems to be some sort of a unit of food? Food is measured in 'calories' ('Only xxx calories!') and you are only supposed to consume so many of these per day, serving or whatever. Oh, well... (see low-calorie) (also see Obesity, paragraph 4)
Cancer: One of many forms of ill-health caused by a severe unexpected trauma (conflict) that comes about through the action of a particular part of the brain from the particular trauma (conflict) which unless resolved (see resolution) may manifest itself in a tumour or a loss of some function of the body, (for example bone) which is nearly always a signal for slash therapy to remove it or try to heal it with radiation and/or drugs. The tumour (or loss) is Nature's response to the trauma (conflict) and should not be removed unless otherwise life-threatening. The essential treatment for and type of 'cancer' is the resolution of the conflict that produced it and this can only be achieved by those who understand the process.(see resolution)
At the time of writing, it is my personal belief that people do not die from cancer, they die from the treatment. They start to die as soon as the diagnosis is made (much like A.I.D.S. (which see)). The diagnosis of 'cancer' is a death sentence because it also causes another 'conflict' (which see) without an immediate possible 'resolution' (which see) and until that 'conflict' is resolved, the 'cancer' will continue. The 'death' sentence remains because there is apparently no 'cure' and the likelihood of one (if it were possible as far as 'modern medicine' is concerned) it is always 'around the corner'. (see Medical charities) (For a further note upon this, please see Appendix One)
Chemicals: There is no doubt that there are many chemicals that have benefitted Man in his pursuance of survival. The problem arises when some of these, made into concoctions or potions, are harmful, especially when their use is based on Nonsense Tales such as the 'germ' theory and dispensed as though they were some sort of cure for what ails the unhealthy (for whatever reason).
Chemist: 1. A person who derives pleasure and earns a living from concocting potions from chemicals for the purpose of doing something to something else. 2. A person who mixes several alcholic drinks together to get drunk, intentionally or not, usually Doctor or perhaps the chemist. Not a pharmacist, who works with the finished product, thereby saving his labour for the after effects.
Cholesterol: A substance produced by Nature that invokes so much maligned horror. Whatever it is, it is a substance which is essential to the body in every living cell. There is no such thing as 'low' cholesterol or 'high' cholesterol as we are uncomprisingly remined by those who actually have the gall tocall themselves 'scientists' and who peddle their ridiculous notions in their so-called 'scientific' press; the magazines you are unlikely to find in your local shop even on the top shelf where they keep the 'dirty' books. Cholesterol is usually linked with 'heart'-disease but in reality it has nothing to do with what we call 'heart'-disease. There are many forms of 'heart'-disease and each one is peculiar to the person so diagnosed. Given that there is in fact a 'test' for cholesterol (and that it actually measures what it is supposed to), it has apparently be found that those who live longest, have higher cholesterol levels as they get older. I can not understand why this should be a problem but that is the subject of an essay. As you get older you must need (naturally) more cholesterol, so your body produces more cholesterol. The notion of selling food that is 'low' in cholesterol is pure nonsensical hype.
Circumcision: The diabolical deliberate genital mutilation of male and females. A psychopathic act conducted by psychopaths. At risk of being moralistic, how anybody could conceive such a notion is certainly beyond my ken.
Cleanliness: Cleanliness is not about trying to kill bacteria but for creating a healthy environment. It is/was not the nature of people to be 'unwashed' as it were. The reasons for ill-health in earlier centuries was due to at least to the fact that people began to live in too close proximity to each other and did not dispose of their waste in a sensible manner. This was the Industrial Revolution (or Healthy Devolution), the beginning of the rise and fall of the Human creature. It was in what is called the Victorian era that this was realised by a few foresighted characters (and the greatest aid to health) and became what we call sanitation. Nothing to do with 'bacteria' but the sensible disposal of waste. As they say, the fly does not make the rubbish pile. Also since living in towns made more natural foods unavailable or more processed, because of the distances travelled, people were not getting their proper nutrients. The same goes for sunshine, rest and exercise. These are the reasons people become unhealthy, not some Nonsense Tale about Big Bad Bugs.
Clinic: Usually a building or part of a building set aside for the pursuance of your un-health but claiming the opposite. Populated by various practitioners with clever and erudite appellations and whose functions defy any reason regarding the establishment of any real health. Also populated by myriads of persons called 'patients' who also have no knowledge how to conduct their own health affairs and are unlikely to find the answers here. Much like a church (small cathedral), much dispensation but little reward. Not a place to visit as a sight-seer and forget any of the souvenirs they may offer. (see hospital)
Conflict: A trauma brought about by a severe and unexpected shock that is interpreted by the brain and affects a portion of the body depending on the genesis of the conflict. (see cancer)
Contagious: Depending on the 'infection (which see), the notion that so-called dieseases can spread from one animal to another. Wholly based on the Nonsense Tale of the 'germ' theory that has caused devastation in the animal kingdom, Man included. From it we get all the horrors of 'modern medicine': vaccination, slaughter of healthy creatures, vivisection, the notions of epidemics, pandemics and everything else that ensues. An entirely spurious notion based either on deliberate ignorance or a means of culling animals (including people) for diabolic reasons.
Creatures that endure similar conditions often (but not always) present similar 'symptoms'. If a group of creatures are all devoid of their correct nutrients and live in other unnatural and poor conditions, then it should obviously be observed that they may all have similar ill health. The notion that one dis-ease can be transmitted to another is false. The obvious is that prevailing conditions will affect those with them.
However, the notion is so wide-spread and the hype and propaganda so strong that it has been entrenched in nearly everybody's mind unless you take a step back into reality.
The notion has been widely discredited over a century ago by competent men and women who actually knew what they are talking about (includes Miss F. Nightingale).
Continuum: A continuum is an unbroken series of events which merge into eath other continuously without beginning or end. There are no edges. Edges are a function of our perceptions of what we see as individual 'objects'. It is my belief that, like it or not, the Universe has always been here and will always be here, even though we might like to believe otherwise to try to make sense (if we needed to) of what we call our existence. If, indeed, and according to conventional Physics, matter can neither be created nor destroyed, then this makes sense. Any 'Big Bang' theory makes a nonsense of itself. We may be unable to conceive this notion but that is because Humans live within only a certain limited degree of perceptions. For example, what we call our senses (sight, hearing, taste and so forth) only manifest within certain limits. Other creatures and flora may have less or more of these 'certain limits'. Everything in the Universe is connected to everything else. We can never stop or start the Universe as one might stop a film projector to study a single frame and explain what the film is about. As soon as we attempt to do so, we can never explain satisfactorily any ongoing process.
Cure: A cure is the complete eradication of any part or whole of a health problem. The word is unavailable (courtesy of the 'authorities' and on pain of a law suit) to those who may perform a cure unless they are in the 'modern medical profession'. The fact that 'modern medicine' has never cured anything, is, apparently beside the point. Unless you study the whole human, who is unwell (that is, holistically) there can never be a cure since everything is related to everything else and nothing will work unless that is so. One could say that a cure is impossible but I would refute that on the basis that if you 'treat' a condition with what Nature provides, then you can effect a return to health, or at least better health. Whether you wish to call this a 'cure' is up to you.
De-organisation: To organise something, one has to gather whatever is required to complete the objective. De-organisation, quite simply, is the opposite of organisation. (see microzymas)
Dentistry: It is not my intention to define or discuss all sectors of the 'medical profession', however, since many of our nutrients must first enter the mouth and that this is where digestion begins, it behoves me to comment on this particular form of 'treatment'. If we ate an entirely 'natural' diet and one containing whole-foods (which see), we would not need a 'dentist'. I have discovered research by a dentist in the U.S.A. that many years ago discovered a town where there were no toothbrushes to be found. He discovered that the townsfolk ate and drank a diet of whole wheat (all of the plant) and raw milk. These folk never had cavities, gum dis-ease nor any of the problems that ail most of us today.
It is purely down to diet and healthy living whether or not we get gum/tooth ill-health. Dentists are notorious (it is their living) for drilling our perfectly healthy teeth, especially 'milk teeth' in the young and filling the ensuing cavities with various compounds, usually containing the deadly poison mercury (amalgams). No wonder the young are ill!
Some-one apparently decided that they had overstocks of sodium fluoride, a left-over from technicalities relating to the construction of the wonder-device of destruction, the atomic bomb. Some sort of experimentation must have ensued and somehow 'they' 'discovered' that, topically applied to the teeth enamel it somehow stengthened it. Total nonsense, of course but so was born fluoride toothpaste, another deadly chemical to to added to the répertoir of filth foisted upon the young. Of course topical application is not the same as ingesting it from the inside of the body. However, they could not move enough of the left-overs from the aluminium smelting industry either (of which fluoride is also a by-product) until some bright psychopath came up with the notion of putting it into the water supply to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities from the inside of the body! Now this deadly poison is added to a great number of water supplies throught the world without your consent, of course, in prolongation of this ludicrous nonsense. It is a Class 2 poison, registered as such. No benefits have been observed regarding the prevention of cavities except mottled teeth due to over-exposure to it (and horrific problems with children who swallowed fluoride toothpaste because it tasted 'nice'). However, a great deal of the ingested fluoride is settled in the body, especially the bones. Osteoporosis, anyone?
At this point I will say no more; there is plenty of material available for you to make an informed opinion. Needless to say avoid it. The best thing for maintaining healthy teeth is to abandon the use of a toothpaste (of any description), eat a nutritious diet and if necessary clean with salt and water (not iodised salt) or even sodium bicarbonate (which helps to keep the alkalinity of the mouth cavity.
Diagnosis: The determination by Doctor of what 'illness' or 'disease' you may 'have' from the 'symptoms' you describe and any Nonsense knowledge he may have acquired. From this diagnosis derives any 'treatment' prescribed necessary and the label by which you will be known from now on. (see prognosis)
Dis-infectant: A Human manufactured chemical for the destruction of so-called 'germs' that 'cause' dis-ease. Another chapter in the Nonsense Tale of 'germ' theory. Please do not waste your hard-earned money on these substances, they are worthless and possibly dangerous. You have been warned.
Diversity: Diverse means non-specific. Its meaning has been warped, somewhat, to cover many forms of human behaviour that are not natural and at the same time we are supposed to accept them as 'alternative life-styles'. Many of these behaviours are, to healthy people, sickening, to say the least, not the least because we are being forced to accept them without question. Male/male and female/female conjugations, for example, come to mind. Only Nature is diverse. Rapidly becoming a 'nasty' word, in my view.
Doctor: any person who purports to aid you in the accomplishment of your health but most often undermines it. A legal drug-pusher par excellence and who earns his wages of sin. Usually 'qualified' by those who have trained them in the first place. Not to be recommended. A person who is such is never called 'a' doctor, or 'the' doctor but much like God, just called Doctor. Beware of false idols. (For further elucidation, please see Appendix Two)
Doctor's appointment: A desperate move to overcome the wiles of a bout of ill-health due to at least the insufficient ingestion of vitamins and minerals leading to the onset of 'symptoms' which have heralded the self-healing process and by which an attempt is made to see if Doctor can alleviate them. Even with an appointment, allow a whole day for the experience.
Dis-ease: a quaint notion that 'germs' cause ill-health. Never proven. Foundation stone of the edifice upon which 'modern medicine' is jerry-built and as real as the foundation stone of a house of cards.
Drugs: See medicine.
Epidemic: The same or similar disease seen in one place affecting a number of people. Usually they are all suffering the same deficiency of vitamins, minerals, rest, exercise and sunlight. (see pandemic).
Exercise: Any activity which helps the whole body to remain healthy. Also includes activities which keep the mind active. Walking is better than running, always, for everything.
Entrenchment: Becoming totally influenced and controlled by others' weird and wonderful notions that repeat or regurgitate unproven and disproven clap-trap, Nonsense Stories, myths and pass them off as 'science'. Those who call themselves 'scientists' have become entrenched in their theories such as 'germ' theory, 'Big Bang' theory, 'Global warming' theory, 'Democracy' theory and so on ad nauseum, and ad infinitum. The expectation is that you believe them also, so that can extract from you your health (including 'mind') and more of your probably hard-earned wages. The flags you might so patriotically wave for these 'people' belong in the waste bin along with their theories.
Fear: Fear is a natural survival mechanism. It is instilled into us to 'put us on notice' that an event, possibly dangerous to our survival may or is occurring and we respond naturally to that, with due regards to the 'risk factor'. (which see)
The problem with the Human animal is that this fear is recognised and used by others of the same species to instil 'control' for dubious (to say the least) purposes by the use of propaganda, hype and anything else of 'value' to their 'cause'.
One of the major fears perpetrated by these 'controllers' is the fear of being 'unhealthy'. That is, the fear of not being able to survive without the intervention of those who deem to know more than we do about our own survival or our health (which in all but a few 'learning' establishments including 'medical' schools is not taught at all, except in relation to the false 'germ' theory).
The methods of our natural survival are rarely taught nowadays because we have been led (like sheep but with no disrespect to them) to live under the umbrella that these 'controllers' know that we can not exist without them being able to control our lives, down to the last detail, it seems, for our 'own good'. Thus, for example, 'modern medicine' prevails over any Natural means by which we might seek out our own survival by our own skills. The same notion applies to all other aspects of our lives.
'Man is his own worst enemy', they say, so there is nothing more else to say other than that he will self-destruct and in short order unless he comes to any reason that he might have once had. One might live in hope but hope is only a maybe...if...(see Purpose)
Fever: An essential self-healing process brought about by its cousin inflammation (which see). It may be managed but not impeded by Doctor or anyone or anything else. This is critical. Fevers, as we generally know, will 'burn themselves out' if properly managed and then we know the healing process is well on the way.
General Practice: The obscure notion that what is practiced upon you (and please note the word 'practice') is part of the ongoing procedure of 'modern medicine' and that what is to descend upon you from Doctor is 'set in concrete' as to its efficacy. Efficacy is not a known substance in thought, deed or 'medicine'. A term used to describe a 'general' sort of Doctor with possibly no particular 'expertise' as long as he/she/it can hold a pen and scribble unintelligably on a wad of paper.
Germ: A myth, hoax, scam. Call it what you will. An invention of sick minds. A 'germ' does not exist, like the Tooth Fairy and dear old Santa Claus and Rude Alf.
Germ Theory: The nonsensical notion that Nature has provided us with a plentitude of deviously 'bad bugs' that await your body to infest and invade it deliberately with toxic material so that you get sick and die! Take no notice and exercise your sense of humour.
Habit: A habit is something that is constantly performed for one reason or another. There are 'mind' and body 'habits'. A habit is a recurring behaviour. Habits may be 'positive' or 'negative' depending on their usage by an individual for some purpose and the notions of other people of which it is not their business in the first place. Shaving one's face may be called a 'habit' if it is done regularly enough. 'Smoking' is another 'habit'. Habits must not be confused with addiction, (which see). Habits may be changed. Even what are known as 'addictions' may be another form of 'habit' and thus can be changed. One can change a habit simply by creating another 'habit' where the original no longer exists. Smoking cigarettes (whatever the morality values, or health issue associated) is a good subject as an example for this discussion because a lot of people, (especially smokers!) will tell you that it is addictive, which is patently untrue (especially in the sense that the body is dependent on the nicotine...which is not 'addictive' in itself) because you can decide that you will not smoke in the house (for example) and you have to change your habit to smoke outside. Maybe not easy, but accomplishable. I am proof of this particular habit-changing. Only a naturist cigarette-smoking nun can not change her habits.
Healing process: the body's natural way to remaining healthy.
Health and Safety: Another 'trendy' phrase. No-one would doubt, I suppose, that the notion is a sound one. However, it has become extremist and is now mostly a ludicrous notion that prevents people from doing the simplest of tasks without recourse to spurious rules (their instigation and litigative procedures). Everything in Nature is now seen as a threat to our 'health and safety'. This does not, of course, mean 'modern medicine', although not entirely unsafe or unhealthy (as agreed by 'modern medicine' itself) it is not considered under the Health and Safety banner.
In fact the risks attached to 'modern medicine' far outweigh any risks your child might take in a children's playground (for example). After all, your child has probably been vaccinated (for example) and its risk of health problems is far more likely since the deed has already been done. A slide down a slide in a playground (fast becoming a cotton-wool effort to prevent 'harm') may not even be available as it does not 'conform' to the possibility of an accident occuring; yet it has never been attempted by your sibling. The notion may be sound but the reasons (if there can be 'reason' here) is ludicrously unsound but often heard. (see Risk)
Health care: The introduction of 'Modern medicine' made available to the masses for profit. Use with great caution (if at all) and ask lots of questions about how it is supposed to help you remain or regain your health as Nature would have. An oxymoron.
Health: Health is the ability to work with Nature to preserve one's personal survival. It is the ability to accept Nature's gifts as part of one's survival. The ability not to accept those things that are not for your survival such as those things within a so-called 'health-care system'constructed by men for their own purposes. Health is the ability to accept one's own personal responsibility to one's self and others and to assist others in the maintenance of their health where it is not possible for them to do so. Requires integrity (which see) A balance between the body and that of Nature if allowing the body to heal itself without the intervention of others by eating decent food, getting rest and exercise and plenty of sunshine and having a good laugh as often as possible.
Health hazard: Anything likely to compromise your health, starting with other people's dictates about what you should and should not eat and leading to their proposals for your continued (possibly) already poor state of health. Any one from the 'Church of Modern Medicine' and those that employ them (includes most 'governments'and their puppeteers).
Health-care Professional: This quaint phrase is often found in the Disclaimer Notices in books and the Internet sites which reflect views different from those of the 'medical profession', who apparently own your health and all that goes with it. One is impelled (and imperiled, if one doesn't) to state that the referred work is one only of an educational nature ('medical profession' sites or books aren't, of course along with their 'treatments') and that real advice should be sought from a 'professional', i.e. one of their own puppets, since no-one else is allowed to be called 'professional'. Usually has a 'qualification' to a high standard in Nonsense Taleology.
Heart disease: What is heart dis-ease? Anything you want it to be, I suppose. Like 'cancer' it has taken a global meaning instead of a specific one. The aim is to frighten you. Heart dis-ease is not a specific dis-ease, like every other dis-ease, in fact. A 'heart specialist' can tell you no more about your heart problems than your local shop-keeper if he sticks to the notions of 'germ' theory, and the mores and lesses of 'modern' medicine'.
HIV: The invented Human Immuno-deficiency Virus. At a very basic level, the 'test' for whether this 'virus' consists of finding 'anti-bodies' (which see) to the said 'virus'. Normally, if you have 'anti-bodies', so the Nonsense Tale states, then your body has successfully got rid of the 'virus' and you no longer have the 'dis-ease'. This is totally the opposite (for some peculiar reason) for HIV! If you test 'positive' for HIV ( that is, have the 'anti-bodies') and have some other ill-ness, call it XX, then you are diagnosed with A.I.D.S. If however you test 'negative' for HIV (that is, you do not have the 'anti-bodies'), then you only have XX.
There is no forensic evidence you can find (even if you ask for it) that a 'virus' HIV (or any other 'virus') causes A.I.D.S. or even exists. It is all a bald-faced untruth and devastating (especially if you are to take their drugs) to any person so testing 'positive'. Never take these tests, please.
Hoax: A deliberate misleading of people by those who might know better but do not. A scam. An often fatal notion. A lie or lies woven or fabricated to hurt some-one.
Holistic: Holistic means whole. The whole Universe is holistic. In reference to life-forms and health, for example, we must needs look at the whole functioning of that body. This means that any number of 'symptoms' of supposed ill-health need to be seen from the holistic view-point. If the whole body is not in balance (healthy) and a runny nose is evident (for example), it is of no use to study just the runny nose. It merely tells us that something is not correct. Any holistic medicine looks at the whole body; 'modern medicine' on the other hand does not, it merely looks at the runny nose and tries to stop it. If this succeeds, then you are pronounced 'cured'; then the cough starts...
Homogenisation: The process of battering fat cells (especially in milk) to make them part of the fluid and inseperable from it. Another means of killing food. Thus, for example, milk is most often not only pasteruised (which see) but homogenised. It results in a fluid which is both un-natural, non-nutritional and potentially unhealthy.
Hydrogenisation: Usually referred to in cooking oils (hydrogenated), I believe, to give them a longer 'shelf life' after they are 'dead' already. The process by which these oils appear clear, pristine and healthy but are in fact 'dead' fluids constituted to look appetising, and thus advertised as 'healthy'. You may decide to believe your eyes and the hype but your body will not respond except negatively. Not healthy; avoid. Not fit for any consumption by living creatures.
Hospital: An often very imposing building, much to Doctor as a cathedral is to God. A place of negative wellness with no hope of reward, much the same as a cathedral. A larger clinic/church. (which see) No stars as a hotel in my tourist guide-book.
Hype: Hype is the grandiose and patent nonsense and untruths that those who deem to control your life use to sell their wares (including their 'snake-oil' theories and potions). 'Authoritarian' hype, especially, is best ignored and laughed at, as is most advertising.
Hypocratic Oath: The original oath which those studying medicine were required to take upon their venturing into the world to bestow health on the rest of us. I have a copy, somewhere, burried in my other papers, yellowed with the age and now obviously forgotten to 'modern medicine'. Even its first tenet, promo non nocare, has been inverted. Originally is meant: First do no harm. Now it appears to mean: First do harm and then spend the rest of the patient's life trying to rectify it.
Iatrogenic: In simple terms, death or destruction by 'modern medicine'.
Immune system: The immune system is another of 'modern medicine's' best achieved hype (which see). It derives from the 'germ' theory along with its chums the 'anti-bodies'. The 'immune system' is supposed to be an intangible part of existence that prevents disease once 'activated' by a 'virus' or 'pathologic bacterium'. Once activated, it produces those marvellous little 'anti-bodies' that then apparently soldier around your body awaiting another attack from a bug that doesn't exist so that they can exterminate them any time they reappear; a bit like Darleks, I suppose. Pretty marvellous, when you think about it. After all, Nature creates a perfect structure and then 'bugs' to destroy it so that it can rebuild it again. As if Nature hasn't got enough things to do! Worse, it led to the diabolical invention of serums and vaccinations.
Infection: Absolutely vital to the Nonsense Tale of the 'germ' theory. The notion that once a nasty little malevolent 'germ' has invaded your body, you are 'infected'. You now have a 'dis-ease'. Depending on what sort of 'germ' it is, will determine the label of this 'dis-ease' and the corresponding 'treament' to 'cure' it. Totally fallacious Nonsense.
Integrity: The quality of leading one's life in the best interests of the self and others without interfering or controlling them in any way or to their detriment. A quality that is sadly lacking in many of today's personages who should know better. The art of not stealing another's work as your own (plagiarism), for example. Should come complete with a sense of humour.
Inflammation: Inflammation is the obvious 'symptom' of the self-healing process. Whatever it is biologically, it is doing its job and should not be interferred with, absolutley not. It may be managed but not prevented. This is exactly why anti-biotics must never be used. (see fever)
Injection: The deliberate stabbing of a creature with the purpose of placing a foreign substance into that creature. By-passing the creature's protective skin (the largest organ of the body), the substance goes directly into the blood or muscle and begins to reek its havoc on the organism immediately. Performed with the aid of a syringe with a sharp needle and causing shock. (which see) Used to deliver pharmaceuticals and vaccinations, both heinous crimes against the creature. Maybe useful for giving blood transfusions but not blood tests based on the 'germ' theory. (which see)
Life-style: The method by which you operate your daily life. A 'trendy' word and linked with better or worse survival skills (which see). If your 'life-style' borders at all on the 'natural as possible', then you have a fair chance of remaining healthy. The further you move away from the direction of Nature, the less likely you are to be healthy in mind and body. This latter also commonly refers to congugations of human couples which are not 'natural'.
Low-calorie: First see calorie and then come back here. Another nonsense compound noun. If calories were indeed units of food then this might make some sense, however as it stands, devoid of sense, it must reflect something else and yes, it does. It means that it has no nutritional value whatsoever and probably means that it is infested with artificial sweeteners, which also means it is a health hazard. (which see)
Medical Charities: Medical charities are those farcical organisations who demand, via the creation of a 'guilt complex', even more of your hard-worked-for cash. They instigate the use of 'volunteers' who rattle tin cans labelled with such things as 'Cancer Research', 'A.I.D.S. Research' or some other 'research' belying the fact that these are the inventions of sick and ignorant minds and who (by the way), really do make you feel sort of guilty if you don't stick your few pennies into their ex-baked bean tins. These volunteers, who in themselves are generally, I imagine, completely unaware of the scam they are perpetuating and are again generally, I assume, well-meaning souls, will way-lay you in front of popular shops and supermarkets. Do not invite into the over-filled coffers of the pharmaceutical or research industry one more sou, sheckle or any other form of geld...and do not feel guilty.
Medical language: Not the esoteric words used by Doctor derived from cutting up bits of Latin and Greek and sticking them together to make other words nobody else can understand but the language of the 'science' of the 'germ' theory. Notice the trend with these thesauratical examples: Invasion/invade, 'ward off', 'kill' (as in kill bacteria), fight, harm, destroy, attack, defend/defence, 'catch a bug' ad nauseum. Notice that they have a war-like tendency? Then we have the actual wars, themselves: The War on Cancer, The War on A.I.D.S., The War on Health (which would be far more apt) and so on. A deal of the human population are certainly a war-mongers.
Medical school: An alleged place of learning for would-be-charlatans (a.k.a. Doctors) and those who work with them in varying capacities of aiding your ill-health and making you pay for it. Also includes those Dr. Already A.Charlatan F.R.C.S. (Follower of the Royal College of Sick-makers) who then claim you are qualified if you swallow enough of their not-so-erudite, ghastly and demonic pills of 'wisdom' and patently false theories.
Medicines: Once Upon a Time, potions concocted originally from natural ingredients for the alleviation of ill-health. They worked (and still do, of course), not by 'killing' any life-form but by giving the recipient the vitamins and or minerals that were lacking to produce the ill-health in the first place. Medicines of today rarely contain any natural ingredients, especially those given by the so-called 'medical profession'. Natural medicines have been replaced by chemicals (many patently toxic) manufactured willy-nilly from a set number (much the same way as numbered ping-pong balls are used to create a number for a lottery win but in this case a rather dangerous loss in the lottery of your health if left to 'modern medicine') and created into pills, serums and goodness knows what else for the purpose of trying to find one that might 'cure' a 'symptom', which in itself is a healing sign and one which was possibly invented in the first place. Not one of them works as it might say 'on the tin' but is a very lucrative business if you can convince enough people that you actually know what you are doing. Unless Natural, to be avoided at all costs.
Mental illness: So-called mental illness relates to little understood phenomena about what is actually happening in the brain to peform its proper function. The 'proper function' of the brain is to monitor every single part of the body, including itself. Man's brain has apparently adapted to such a stage that it seems to have brought out an awareness of itself. This is, of course, remarkable.
As with the rest of the body, the brain and its 'mind' can undergo changes if the whole organism is not in balance and taking in it requirements such as nutritious food and water. Because the brain directs everything else and is an integral part of that whole, anything that affects the brain will exhibit certain other bodily effects. Largely we call these effects 'behaviours'. When studying what we call 'mental illness' we are mainly studying behaviours.
As with everything else, the brain needs to be in tip-top condition to perform its proper function. Anything affecting the brain will affect everything else. Psychiatrists (which see) attempt to regard certain behaviours as 'normal' and those that are 'abnormal'. The problem here is that 'normal' is not defined and I declare that it is, in fact, indefinable. If indeed any one of us were 'normal' (or 'average', for that matter), we would certainly be unique! However, sometimes admitted by themselves, psychiatrists have not a clue how the brain functions. They study people who are obviously having difficulties, to find out what is 'wrong', instead of studying the healthy to find out why they are healthy. Removing the brain to study it will tell us nothing about how it functions because it cannot function without the body. Looking at bits of a jig-saw puzzle can tell us nothing about the completed picture. Part of the topsy-turvy world. (which see) By the way, there are apparently some Humans that seem to function without a brain but that is another story...
Metastases: The spurious notion that 'cancer' can 'spread' or 'invade' other parts of the body.
This is a complete nonsense (see Cancer). It would need the blood-stream to carry these supposed 'deviant cells' from one place to another and they have never been demonstrated to exist in blood because they can not be demonstrated anywhere else. Blood used in transfusions, apparently is never tested for 'cancer' cells. Might one ask why? Ask for a sample of a 'deviant' cell.
Avoid 'modern medical' cancer therapy diagnosis and especially prognosis and seek advice about your past life's traumatic experiences with some-one to whom you can talk. You know it makes sense.
Microzymas: Discovered by Antoin Béchamp, these indestructable elements are microscopic and enzymatic. That is, they produce chemical reactions but do not themselves change. They 'work' by creating a fermentative process. They are the basis for all life forms without exception. They organise themselves, depending on the conditions of the moment and with appropriate nutrients and environment create life forms. As soon as the life-form ceases to ingest appropriate nutrients or the environment does not favour them, they de-organise and return to their former elements.Their discovery preceeds the 'germ' theory and negates it totally. The notion regarding microzymas has been deliberately lost in the mists of time because of the lucrative nature of the 'germ' theory, 'borrowed' (to be kind) from elsewhere by Louis Pasteur. I do not claim that the microzymas which Béchamp discovered are the 'be all and end all' as I keep an open mind. However, using special microscopes (also 'lost' in the mists of time) (Béchamp's, Royal Rife, who called them Somatids, Prusiner who called them prions and by others) these have been observed in the living state.
Modern Medicine: The diabolical process by which hundreds of governments and their minions, chemical companies, charlatans, Shamans, witches, voodoo artists and their aides (including their media) make their living through false theories, myths, invented diseases, plagues, epidemics, pandemics, diagnoses, prognoses and treatment. Best avoided if you wish to stay healthy or become healthy. An Human apocalyptic disaster movie no one will be alive to watch. Heralds the New Dark Ages of Man's limited existence.
Minerals: The products of the natural environment and a result of a plasma/electric universe. Many are essential for the human organism but many are also toxic to life-forms, such as mercury, aluminium, and fluoride to suggest a very few (all those listed are contained in a great number of 'modern medicine's' drug armoury).
Myth: The appropriation of a notion derived from direct observation of environmental phenomena but a lack of data available to create a body of 'knowledge' and thus embroidered to maintain people's ignorance and fear of and for their environment by those who deem to control them. 'Ways of life' have been created from the beliefs in myths and still are to this day. Now mostly a Nonsense Tale but with due respect to Nature's innocents from the past who created them for an understanding of their environment which was far more unstable then than it is now.
Natural: That which is provided by Nature. Not Man-made unless from natural ingredients (for example, a cotton shirt).
Natural Healers: Those who use natural methods and ingredients (those provided by Nature) for the purpose of alleviating unwellness. Mostly a dying breed who are constantly ostracised and demonised for being both sensible, honest and actually caring for others' health and their own. Generally to be recommended if chosen (for example, from word-of-mouth recommendation) with care.
Nature: A convenient noun used to describe of what the planet was composed before the 'arrival' of the Human species was able to contemplate such a notion and which constantly changes becasue the Universe constantly changes.
Nature is often given the gender 'female' but that would be anthropromorphic and a product of human verbal language and therefore, not 'natural', as not having existed before the Human species.
Non-foods: Most of what you eat is non-food. It probably has as much nutritional value as the packaging. That is, most of what you eat is of little use to your body and will end up as waste. The body will extract what it requires and eliminate the rest. That being said, most natural foods will have everything you need to stay healthy. However, if you have to fortify foods with chemicals, then there can not be much use in the product in the first place. One sees 'Added vitamin A or C', for example. Then eat something containing Vitamin A or vitamin C in the first place. Non-foods include all artificial butters, margarines, soy, most processed cereals, bread (most of the time, which may also include soy 'flour'), almost all manufactured oils, canola, rapeseed (deadly poisonous in the wild), peanut, sunflower and so on. Avoid any milk that is semi-this or semi-that, or low in this, high in that, this is all hype. If it isn't as natural and unprocessed as much as possible, then be at least aware of this and take supplements or better still eat more of the 'good' stuff. We all fail to do this; I would not want to be paranoid about this, one likes ones little 'nibbles' (please stick to the subject!). The non-foods mentioned above are seriously not healthy despite the multitudinous claims to the contrary. (see whole-foods)
Nutrients: Natural products such as vitamins, minerals, sunshine, rest, humour and exercise essential for health.
Obesity: Not a pleasant subject since it has become the monotonous monologue of the vague and ignorant, mostly the 'medical profession' and adopted by pathetic rags like 'Daily Mail', 'The Sun' and 'The Times', to name a few, with the intention to ostracise the larger person and make them feel guilty. If one needed an Unhealth Programme, these rags (for example) would be where I would start. Another nasty word like over-weight. Part of the world of 'One size fits all', which permeates our unhealthy 'medical profession'. To be obese one needs to be larger than a 'fat' person, if that were not bad enough as an expression.
Ever since I was a tiny person, we have had all these notions of 'food chains' (that bind us to the Supermarket, I suppose; or the Co-Op, in those days), 'food pyramids' (which constantly get inverted, I observe) and so forth. None of it really made sense to me neither at the time, nor now. But I digress.
Apparently, there is an 'epidemic' of 'obesity' on the planet (or at least the part of the planet that includes the writer of this missive but does not include the millions who are anti-obesity (or even ante-obesity until they have shown the error of their ways) because they have neither the wherewithal nor the food to become so). Eating does not, in my view 'cause' obesity. If there is such a thing, then it is because of this thing they call 'life-style'. I don't know if 'lifestyle' has ever been defined but you may have found it above under 'Life-style'. Anyway, there is truth in the observance that people are getting larger. My only proviso on this is that if you are unhealthy, it is a mind/body thing and needs to be sorted out with talking to some-one; not listening to ministrations about morals and 'diets' and so on but trying to see if there is a problem. If one is versed in the requirements for a Natural Health, then one must pursue this.
The notion of 'counting calories' and the logisitics of performing this mathematical feat in the middle of a supermarket on Saturday morning, even if you could read the miniscule printing (and you had forgotten your microscope) are ludicrous in the extreme, especially as calories are not quantities of food! (see calories) You will remain a large size if you do not change the habits of eating what and when and many of the other things that affect your size. But then you have been told so much about this, there is nothing left to say. If you are larger and want to get smaller you need to look at your whole life.
Overdose: The unfortunate behaviour of most pharmaceutical drugs if prescribed for you often enough or they are toxic enough. Probably part of a habit. (which see) This is because any manufactured drug is at least an overdose of something the body cannot cope with from the start. With Natural medicinal materials (especially vitamins) overdose is virtually unknown.
Pain: Pain is not a pleasant experience. Its saving grace is that when it has been alleviated, it is forgotten by the body until the next time it occurs. Relief after a 'head-ache' is profoundly comforting and then forgotten until the next one. Pain must obviously be a painful warning sign that all is not correct with your body and is asking for help (in its inimitable way). Although painful, it is a necessary naughtiness of the spirit if it is to be alleviated without the ministrations of our nutritionally-challenged Doctor. Pain can often be successfully managed, as can most ill-health.
Pandemic: Lots of epidemics all lumped together (and hopefully World-wide for those rubbing their hands at the thought of all the loot to be made). Usually contrived to convince people to be vaccinated (often with untested poison) first by common consent, then mandatory, then by force (physical or mental). Also a means of perpetrating a feeling of individual or collective guilt if you do not wish to become involved in their shennanegans. Obviously a criminal activity perpetrated by over-pecunious psychopaths.
Parasite: A creature that lives off others without any (obvious) benefit to those others. The creature who calls himself 'Man' is a perfect example of a parasite since he does not (generally) contribute to the well-being of other 'humans' and not only that, but to their detriment and especially the rest of Nature. A word often used by those who neither understand the definition Man imposes on other creatures but refuses to believe that he is an example of his own definition.
Pasteurisation: Pateurisation is the deliberate and wanton partial (?) killing of milk from cows and goats (at least) based on the false premise of the 'germ' theory. (which see)
Pharmacist: A pharmacist is one who dispenses a chemist's conconctions at the direction of Doctor. Most often has more sense about the said concoctions than Doctor, providing he can read their illegible handwriting and not make too many mistakes without checking first. Knows a lot more about drugs than Doctor and is often worth asking his opinion before you go to seek your practitioner as a last resort.
Physician: (see Doctor)
Physiology: Physiology is the study of flora and fauna for the purposes of relating one structure with another. For example, how the kidneys function in relation to the rest of the body. The same parameters of validity follow as with the study of anatomy. (which see)
Plaque: A blue ceramic, porcelain, or china accoutrement placed on t
