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.

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.

Debunking the Germ Theory of Disease

He revolutionized the field of medicine, and has numerous institutions named after him for his efforts. He was one of the most celebrated scientists of his time, and a giant in medical circles even today. He supposedly proved the Germ Theory of disease, the basis of most medical education.

But Louis Pasteur’s science was highly questionable.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, Debunking the Germ Theory of Disease.

Well, we are entering sacred territory today on our program. Pasteur’s ideas have been sacrosanct for at least a century, and all significant medical research is based on his proposals. The multi-billion dollar industry that is cancer, AIDS and numerous other disease research initiatives if firmly entrenched in our western world, as is the powerful pharmaceutical industry, and even the areas of immunology and vaccination. Not much of modern medicine is untouched by Pasteur’s influence.

But in looking at his life, you enter a world of subterfuge, deception and just plain wrong conclusions that were cynically adopted by Carnegie and Rockefeller in the U.S. and used to influence medical research and education in most of the developed world. And for one distinct purpose – to sell pharmaceuticals that there were developing form the waste products from their coal and oil industries. That’s right … there were serious ulterior motives at play in the promotion of Pasteur’s questionable scientific conclusions.

Not the first time this has happened of course. Henry Ford was instrumental in leading the move in America for the creation of the suburbs. “We shall solve the city problem by leaving the city,” he stated, thereby combining his social vision with his economic self-interest. You can sell a lot more cars if people are commuting back and forth for miles every day.

This blatant manipulation for economic reasons is not new to us, is it? Were any of us surprised to find former vice-president Dick Cheney’s company, Halliburton, picked to lead the re-building of Iraq shortly after its former CEO pushed so hard for the war that would necessitate the re-building?

But what may surprise you is that there was an entirely different scientific view than Pasteur’s being elaborated at the same time – in total opposition to Pasteur’s ideas – and this science is the more certain one, as proven by research in many locations, including our International Society of Analytical Trilogy here in Brazil. And, of course, 2500 years of Chinese medicine.

That more complete science came from the formidable research of French biologist and medical doctor, Antoine Bechamp, and who has ever heard of him? Incredible, isn’t it? His work is far more in line with Dr. Keppe’s studies in psychosomatic medicine, and this truly deserves our attention today.

As always, you can check out all of our work on our Trilogy portal site, or email me anytime and I’ll guide you in the right direction so you can learn more about Norberto Keppe‘s great science.

Today, medical doctor and infectious disease specialist, Dr. Roberto Giraldo joins me to talk about Bechamp’s lost but important science.

Controling Swine Flu Hysteria

The biggest 20th century one killed millions. An outbreak in the mid-20th century killed far less. ’68 was the last big one, but back in the ’90s, a flu bug supposedly from birds caused a panic for awhile in Toronto. I was affected by that one, but not by fever or other tell-tale symptoms. Nope. The Rolling Stones canceled back then … and I had box seats.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, let’s take a critical look at the Swine Flu.

We’re very impacted by inverted science, as we’ve explored many times on this program. Scientists since Pasteur see all sorts of nefarious things in the microbes swimming in their Petri dishes. We have vaccines for this, medicines for that, radical radiation treatments to kill this and that disease. But we miss a key point when we look down at the microbic level to find the source of our maladies, and that is that disease doesn’t really come from that level.

Our materialistic philosophy introduced by Aristotle’s great inversion that we understand reality through the senses has led us deeper and deeper into the quirks and quarks, and further and further from the universal understanding that Aristotle’s master, Plato, suggested was inside us. “Infused science” he called it, saying we were born with it. Brazilian psychoanalyst and social scientist, Norberto Keppe, agrees with that. He talks about the universal concepts we possess. “Divine concepts inside the human being,” is how he puts it. And this corrects Aristotle’s metaphysical error: the lesser things don’t create the greater, we could say. Meaning tiny viruses could never really CAUSE our maladies. They’re there many times, but what lets them take hold is something bigger – the state of our psychological lives, which directly affects our immune system.

Dr. Roberto Giraldo is a Colombian doctor, a specialist in internal medicine with a major in infectious diseases and clinical tropical medicine, and he’s perhaps a perfect guy to talk about this. He works with AIDS and cancer patients all over the world, and he doesn’t believe much in the Swine Flu scare.

What Really Causes Stress

Unemployment rates are the highest in 16 years. We’ve got massive foreclosures and forecasts of trillion dollar deficits. Our kids have A.D.D. Everything we touch causes cancer. And our football team missed the playoffs. Again.

No doubt about it … living in the 21st century is bringing a lot of stress.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, we’ll dig deeper into what really causes our stress … and more importantly, how a therapeutic science from Brazil can help us finally understand and deal with our admittedly stressful world.

Here at the beginning of 2009, we have a pretty bleak outlook. Well, it’s time to offer an anti-dote to all that. Some hope, if you will.

And the moment I say that I realize how trite it sounds to our jaded ears. We’ve heard it all before, haven’t we? This book, that 10-steps-to-a-greater-you, this magic pill. We’re caught between wanting something to believe in and having been disappointed so many times we’ve stopped believing. Almost. We’re cynical, sardonic, ironic as hell.

But one of the problems is that we’ve been looking too much outside ourselves for resolution. It’s tough to resolve our essential problem out there because the source of our difficulties lies inside here. And what we’re exploring on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, what forms the basis of all our work at the International Society of Analytical Trilogy here in São Paulo, Brazil is a comprehensive science that gives us the consciousness needed to treat those inner demons.

Norberto Keppe‘s Analytical Trilogy is a union of theology, philosophy and science that really fills in the blanks of our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in. As a listener wrote recently, “Keppe’s greater principles make a great deal of sense.” And sense is what we’d like to continue bringing in 2009.

Let’s try to make sense of stress today. We have a lot of if in our world. Helena Mellander is a Swedish journalist working in our Trilogical companies here in Brazil, and she’s also been working for some months now to develop some deep health programs for companies based on Keppe’s work. One of the principal reas of concern in these workshops is dealing with stress.

The True Origin of Illness

Most place its origins on chemical imbalances, or poor nutrition, or heredity … or even on bad karma from past lives. But with the new discoveries in psycho-socio-pathology, it’s now possible to lay the blame squarely on our shoulders.

Let’s face it … if we’re sick or troubled, somewhere in our psychology, that’s what we want.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, the True Origin of Illness.

I know, there are many people writing these days about sickness and health from a more wholistic perspective, but somehow no one has defined the origins of illness quite as completely as Norberto R. Keppe.

That’s a big claim to make, of course, and probably needs some backup. Keppe created the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine at the clinical hospital of the University of São Paulo – the largest hospital in latin America – back in the ’60s. Here’s how it worked in those days: the most hopeless cases, the ones the medical doctors couldn’t get their heads around, ended up in Keppe’s office for a little of his innovative psychoanlytical technique. And many times, walked out healthy. From alergies to heart problems to gastrointestinal difficulties to terminal diseases, he kind of worked magic on them. His results continued at his own private clinic – and continue to this day – offering a revolution in treating any type of disease.

And the core of his work is this: illness is an aberration. It’s a sign that we are doing something to distort or negate our true and healthy nature. And that blockage can be identified and treated, restoring the natural health that underpins all of life.

Where Freud got lost in the pessimism of seeing us as having this pathological unconscious full of bad intentions and animal instincts – and proposing that this was natural and unavoidable – Keppe restores hope by seeing us as naturally good and healthy beings in essence … but with many inverted attitudes against that sanity. Attitudes that can be treated and controlled. There is a deeply spiritual aspect fo Keppe’s work, then, that focusses the discussion of why we – and our society – are so sick, on the human psychological life. And that’s something his work throws mega spotlights on. Keppe understands the human psyche better than anyone in history since Jesus – and we have much to gain by turning to his wisdom.

By the way, we’ll be exploring the implications and impact of his work in many areas of human activity at our World Conference of Analytical Trilogy this coming September, 2008 in San Diego. Check it out at www.wcatus.org

And another note … we’re finally in production for our teleclass series that we’ve been promising for some time now. We’ve been a little slow getting that off the ground. We get busy around here, and it’s a push to do these extra things, but I appreciate your patience. If you’d like more information about this series, or anything else you’ve heard about on this Podcast, just shoot me an email: rich@richjonesvoice.com

Today, psychoanalyst Leo Lima, who’s worked closely with Keppe for 25 years, takes us on a journey to the origins of illness.

True Medicine

Spending on medical technology is growing. Drug prescriptions are flying out of doctor’s offices. Drug companies are throwing new drugs on the market continually. And all this vaunted “medical care” is killing us in record numbers.

We’re getting sicker and sicker. And our medical perspective is leading us further and further from a solution.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, True Medicine.

There’s much coming out of the psychosomatic department at Norberto Keppe’s International Society of Analytical Trilogy that is ground-breaking. Keppe is a true pioneer in the field. For over 50 years, he’s been curing people of severe and minor health conditions, from cancer and AIDS, to migraines and eczema, using nothing more than psychoanalysis – albeit psychoanalysis with some teeth in it, as evidenced by its ability to get to the core of the issue rather than just moving things around on the surface like so much of today’s health techniques – including even the highly-touted alternative methods. More in a moment.

First, a reminder of our International Congress of Analytical Trilogy from July 4 -6, 2008 here in Brazil. Our web page is up now – www.trilogycongress.org. This will be an in-depth look at many practical applications of Norberto Keppe’s work in psycho-socio-pathology that will bring you a lot of consciousness and maybe even inspire you to study with us to learn more so you can apply it in your field of work. Check out the site – www.trilogycongress.org – and write me if you are interested in joining us – rich@richjonesvoice.com

Speaking of learning … I’m working with Dr. Claudia Pacheco – my guest on today’s show – to develop a very exciting teleclass series for those interested in learning more about Analytical Trilogy and discovering how it can help you in your careers, relationships, health and general understanding of the world. Make sure you write me to get on our waiting list for this. It’s coming soon.

Now, Norberto Keppe is the name of the brilliant Austrian/Brazilian psychoanalyst whose extraordinary work forms the basis of this program. And he has elaborated the first true psychology the world has ever seen. Where others have gotten only so far as seeing human problems stemming from sex and family problems, or trauma, or society’s negative influence, or chemical imbalances, Keppe has re-defined the field to lead us back to the source of all our problems inside ourselves, which then also manifest outward to our greater society.

If we feel bad, Keppe asserts, it’s because of some denial or rejection of health inside us. Thus, our attitudes and ideas and emotions need attention.

This has huge implications in the area of physical health, as we’ll discuss today – much more than the food we eat or the vitamins we ingest or even the DNA we have.
