Depression and Society

Here’s a wild thought: it’s our socio-economic structure that is causing most of our distress and misery today.

We’ll even go a little further: it leading us into mental and physical illness. After all, human beings cannot live in balance if society is out of balance. The dynamics between the individual’s internal problems and the resultant social difficulties has rarely been studied … and never with the clarity and vision we’ll introduce today.

Stress as a consequence of social sickness, led by the most unbalanced individuals in our society today – our leaders – and what we need to do to improve it. Provocative stuff today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

How the Mind Influences Nature

Science has become tragically compartmentalized. A bacteriologist has little knowledge of what an endocrinologist does, much less does a paleontologist understand anything of molecular chemistry. And although all of it may be Greek to us, there is a synthesis in science that comes from disinverting the basis of the scientific disciplines.

Norberto Keppe’s work of Analytical Trilogy has accomplished that Herculean feat, and we are the lucky beneficiaries. Science that makes sense today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, and along the way, a consideration of good and evil, what’s happening in the Arab world, and how our minds influence nature – beautifully explained as always by Dr. Claudia Bernhardt Pacheco and Richard Lloyd Jones.

Man’s Inverted Desire to be a “god”

Dec. 1, 2010

We go deep to the source of humanity’s problems on our show today, which we can do thanks to the science of Norberto Keppe, who is a master of human psycho and socio pathology. Join host Richard Lloyd Jones and special guest, Dr. Claudia Bernhardt Pacheco in an expansive and thrilling discussion that looks at how the desire to be like gods manifests in every area from politics and business to the spiritual world. We’ll also have a special report from the field with Gilbert Gambucci discussing the true basis of civilization.

The Will, Freedom and True Reality

Dec. 7, 2010

Dr. Claudia Bernhardt Pacheco joins us today for a profound exploration of the nature of life, how far we’ve strayed from it and what that distance means for human intelligence and culture. A poetic discussion that finds time along the way to consider the inverted human will, airport security gone mad, and how the Japanese are using Mozart to ripen bananas.

Where our Health Really Comes From

Sartre proposed that hell was the other people, and maybe we took that too much to heart. So we build walls to keep out the Mexicans, we stone the “terrible” married women who sleep around, we blame everyone but ourselves for our troubles.

And perhaps one of the most pernicious areas dominated by the “problem comes from outside” mentality is health.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, Where our Health Really Comes From.

Every couple of days I receive a great e-newsletter from Dr. Mercola. It’s chock full of great information – too much for me to keep up with, frankly. But there’s lots of good stuff in there about how GM foods are taking over, the dangers of artificial sweeteners and fluoride and even vaccines. It’s invaluable stuff.

It struck me, however, how materialistic it is, and so limited because of this. So many details about nutrition, like simple secrets to better digestive health, the things men can do to tweak their prostate health, amazing tonics and teas and supplements. Oh, were it that easy, right? It seems we are addicted to looking for solutions outside.

My father, who’s 86 now, has a health food store in his bedroom. Exotic things like shark cartilage, Komodo bearded dragon dusting powder, leucistic sugar gliders. Man’s search for healing medicinal tonics is centuries old. This desperate drive to find our health answers outside has been exploited by many snake-oil salesmen among others – including the first Rockefellers. The father of J.D., J.D. being the oil robber baron everyone knows about, was well known for bottling a strange concoction and travelling all over America palming off bottled raw petroleum as a magical elixir he assured the gullible would cure everything from gas to cancer. His son, the very same J.D., was suitably impressed by this – especially when he realized it cost only $2.00 a barrel to concoct the elixir from crude petroleum, and that barrel would produce 1000 – 6 oz. bottles of the stuff. He labelled it Nujol, and sold it as a cure for constipation back in the 1920s.

We’re so desperate to find the origins of our illnesses that we’ll spend a fortune looking for magic from outside. This fear of things outside reached its zenith in the 20th century with Darwin’s theory. If we’re all animals, it must be a jungle out there, so eat or be eaten my friend. And look at all the disastrous collateral damage of that inverted view.

Louis Pasteur kicked into action at the end of the 19th century with th etheory that disease would originate from germs formed outside – and this took off because of the huge support of the burgeoning pharmaceutical industry that would make billions selling medicines to kill those offending germs outside. And we’d forget all about the amazing work of Antoine Bechamp, Pasteur’s contemporary and a far superior scientist to Louis, who arrived at exactly opposite conclusions from his rival.

This battle is a fascinating one, actually, that we’ll dive into a little today with Dr. Claudia Bernhardt Pacheco, a world-renowned author, psychoanalyst, and pioneer in psychosomatic medicine from Dr. Keppe‘s International Society of Analytical Trilogy.

Controlling our Food

It should be a sacred thing. And indeed, our food philosophy used to be closer to common sense in the past. My parents, already a generation closer to nature than mine, taught me that the best thing you could put in your body was something you washed the dirt off before putting it in your mouth.
But, oh my, how things have changed! Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, Controlling our Food.

It should be a no-brainer. The food we eat should be the closest thing to nature we can get. The whole alimentation industry should be based on that premise. But it’s a long way from it. Now we’ve god hormones to make the birds and cows grow faster and with more meat. We’ve got pesticides and chemical fertilizers to the point where it’s advisable to peel the apples before eating to avoid the greatest concentrations of these toxic substances. We’ve got additives for this, enriched minerals for that, our food is fortified and treated. We’re surrounded by toxins and belly full of food whose nutritional value is highly suspect.

There are many factors at play. We’ve built enormous industries of chemicals that make substantial profits for huge corporations. The fact that many of them are based on tycoons wanting to find uses for their industrial waste is not well understood by us. In fact, the pharmaceutical industry was established on the waste products from the oil and coal industries, which is why Rockefeller and Carnegie were so keenly interested in Pasteur’s Germ Theory. They figured if they could get that theory accepted in the top medical schools in the land they’d have another almost endless source of profit. Heck, if every disease has a specific germ responsible for it, then you need a specific medicine for each germ – plus all the R&D industry to go along with it.

So they commissioned Abraham Flexner to do an exhaustive analysis of the medical education system in Canada and the U.S., and his Flexner Report changed totally how medicine was taught and perceived. Of course, the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundations threw money at any medical research facility that focused on finding the germs responsible for a multitude of diseases old and new. And if these medical centers could dedicate themselves to creating a drug, a pharmaceutical medicine that could be created with coal and oil waste, well, here’s more money for you! And quickly, medical education began to change.

That was Mr. Pasteur who influenced that. But he caused a lot of damage in the food business, too. His introduction of paranoia into medicine led to the creation of artificial food – including plastic and chemical additives and processes that would ensure us we never got infected with any of those evil little bacteria. Monsanto was created in 1901 with exactly that intention, and they haven’t stopped infecting our lives with beastly products and practices since.

All of this is explained in Norberto Keppe‘s work of Analytical Trilogy, which is the science of showing us the source of our problems within, not without. And it is very valuable work to explore. if you’d like more information about any of Keppe’s work.

This Pasteurian craziness is at the basis of the Codex Alimentarius, too – a U.N. led attempt to categorize and control all foodstuffs. This gives a lot of preference to treated and genetically modified food over natural food, and this is very dangerous. Medical doctor and infectious diseases specialist, Dr. Roberto Giraldo, joins me today to discuss this theory.

Re-Thinking Vaccines

Vaccines have been sold as essential for our survival. And we’re vaccinating a significantly larger number of kids because of it. Many hospital boards and health care systems even link incentive pay for executives and directors to their pediatric immunization rates.

But there’s more than a conflict of interest going on here. Vaccinations, it appears, are downright dangerous.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, Re-thinking Vaccines.

Well, get ready to have your eyes opened. Dr. Roberto Giraldo has brought something very interesting to Brazil since moving here from New York City. Giraldo is a Colombian medical doctor with a speciality in infectious diseases and immunology. He’s worked a lot with AIDS patients all over the world and has much to say about the inverted medical system he’s worked in for over 40 years. And he’s been talking lately with Dr. Norberto Keppe. Keppe is the scientist behind Analytical Trilogy, which is the science I base these programs on. And they’ve been talking incessantly about the bad science Louis Pasteur brought to the world, and the forgotten genius of Pasteur’s contemporary, Antoine Béchamp. We’ll explore that a little more in our program today.

If you start investigating the vaccine business, you’re in for quite an eye opener. First of all, be very clear about this: vaccinations are a business. Forget all the drug industry hype about protecting our children, this is a profit-based endeavor through and through. A couple of years ago, independent market analyst, Datamonitor, commissioned a report from a vaccine analyst – and who know there even was such a thing. Hedweg Kresse was her name, and in this report she discussed the future outlook for vaccine profits. Turns out she’s predicting that the introduction of high priced vaccines will induce some rapid growth in the pediatric and adolescent vaccines market. She’s predicting that that market’s goint to quadruple by 2016 across the U.S., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the U.K. and Japan.

They’re projecting it. That means they’re going to make it happen.

The crucial factor, what’ll make these stupendous profits possible, is the “introduction of a product into national vaccination schedules.” This means they’re preparing product, and marketing it through highly paid lobbyists to government officials in these countries.

And then slipped in ominously right after this comment is consultant Kresses’ admission that this product introduction into national vaccination schedules virtually guarantees market expansion and high coverage rates in the target population.

“Coverage rates.” My God, the language. That means the numbers of people who are vaccinated. You can just imagine the directors of the vaccine companies hashing it out with flow charts and projection sheets. Talking about windows of opportunity and profit margins and return on investment. Kind of chills the blood, doesn’t it?

But you know what else guarantees that these new high priced vaccines are adopted by various national vaccination schedules? Reimbursements. That’s corporate speak for payments to directors of hospital boards and health care systems based on the immunization rates they achieve in their institutions. So they’re paid bonuses if they increase immunizations.

That doesn’t leave a very warm feeling in my heart either.

With all this need for marketing, it makes you wonder about the efficacy of the marketed product, doesn’t it? Kind of like junk food lobbyists pushing for their product’s inclusion in school lunch programs. It’s “good business” but I’m pretty sure the kids aren’t going to benefit all that much. And so it is with vaccines – a dubious medical procedure with little good science behind it.

Now I know this is a shock. Anything that cuts directly against the prevailing point of view always raises the hackles of some. But vaccinations, like Pasteur’s Germ Theory itself, is something that’s been marketed – peddled actually – by some who stand to make a ton of money by promoting and supporting it. And that alone should make us take a second look.

Which we’ll try to help you do today with Dr. Roberto Giraldo.
