“…… Should I use Doctors and Drugs to Heal Me or Spiritual Methods?

"Dear Kryon, I have heard that you should stay natural and not use the science on the planet for healing. It does not honor God to go to a doctor. After all, don't you say that we can heal with our minds? So why should we ever go to a doctor if we can do it ourselves? Not only that, my doctor isn't enlightened, so he has no idea about my innate or my spiritual body needs. What should I do?"

First, Human Being, why do you wish to put so many things in boxes? You continue to want a yes and no answer for complex situations due to your 3D, linear outlook on almost everything. Learn to think out of the 3D box! Look at the heading of this section [above]. It asks which one should you do. It already assumes you can't do both because they seem dichotomous.

Let's use some spiritual logic: Here is a hypothetical answer, "Don't go to a doctor, for you can heal everything with your mind." So now I will ask: How many of you can do that in this room right now? How many readers can do that with efficiency right now? All of you are old souls, but are you really ready to do that? Do you know how? Do you have really good results with it? Can you rid disease and chemical imbalance with your mind right now?

I'm going to give you a truth, whether you choose to see it or not. You're not ready for that! You are not yet prepared to take on the task of full healing using your spiritual tools. Lemurians could do that, because Pleiadians taught them how! It's one of the promises of God, that there'll come a day when your DNA works that efficiently and you will be able to walk away from drug chemistry and the medical industry forever, for you'll have the creator's energy working at 100 percent, something you saw within the great masters who walked the earth.

This will be possible within the ascended earth that you are looking forward to, dear one. Have you seen the news lately? Look out the window. Is that where you are now? We are telling you that the energy is going in that direction, but you are not there yet.

Let those who feel that they can heal themselves begin the process of learning how. Many will be appreciative of the fact that you have some of the gifts for this now. Let the process begin, but don't think for a moment that you have arrived at a place where every health issue can be healed with your own power. You are students of a grand process that eventually will be yours if you wish to begin the quantum process of talking to your cells. Some will be good at this, and some will just be planting the seeds of it.

Now, I would like to tell you how Spirit works and the potentials of what's going to happen in the next few years. We're going to give the doctors of the planet new inventions and new science. These will be major discoveries about the Human body and of the quantum attributes therein.

Look at what has already happened, for some of this science has already been given to you and you are actually using it. Imagine a science that would allow the heart to be transplanted because the one you have is failing. Of course! It's an operation done many times a month on this planet. That information came from the creator, did you realize that? It didn't drop off the shelf of some dark energy library to be used in evil ways.

So, if you need a new heart, Lightworker, should you go to the doctor or create one with your mind? Until you feel comfortable that you can replace your heart with a new one by yourself, then you might consider using the God-given information that is in the hands of the surgeon. For it will save your life, and create a situation where you stay and continue to send your light to the earth! Do you see what we're saying?

You can also alter that which is medicine [drugs] and begin a process that is spectacular in its design, but not very 3D. I challenge you to begin to use what I would call the homeopathic principle with major drugs. If some of you are taking major drugs in order to alter your chemistry so that you can live better and longer, you might feel you have no choice. "Well, this is keeping me alive," you might say. "I don't yet have the ability to do this with my consciousness, so I take the drugs."

In this new energy, there is something else that you can try if you are in this category. Do the following with safety, intelligence, common sense and logic. Here is the challenge: The principle of homeopathy is that an almost invisible tincture of a substance is ingested and is seen by your innate. Innate "sees" what you are trying to do and then adjusts the body's chemistry in response. Therefore, you might say that you are sending the body a "signal for balance." The actual tincture is not large enough to affect anything chemically - yet it works!

The body [innate] sees what you're trying to do and then cooperates. In a sense, you might say the body is healing itself because you were able to give it instructions through the homeopathic substance of what to do. So, why not do it with a major drug? Start reducing the dosage and start talking to your cells, and see what happens. If you're not successful, then stop the reduction. However, to your own amazement, you may often be successful over time.

You might be able to take the dosage that you're used to and cut it to at least a quarter of what it was. It is the homeopathy principle and it allows you to keep the purpose of the drug, but reduce it to a fraction of a common 3D dosage. You're still taking it internally, but now it's also signaling in addition to working chemically. The signal is sent, the body cooperates, and you reduce the chance of side effects.

You can't put things in boxes of yes or no when it comes to the grand system of Spirit. You can instead use spiritual logic and see the things that God has given you on the planet within the inventions and processes. Have an operation, save your life, and stand and say, "Thank you, God, for this and for my being born where these things are possible." It's a complicated subject, is it not? Each of you is so different! You'll know what to do, dear one. Never stress over that decision, because your innate will tell you what is appropriate for you if you're willing to listen. ….”

"Hearing the Voice of Spirit - The Dark and Light Balance" – (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, February 20, 2016

This live channelling was given in Sarasota, Florida.

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added. Often what happens live has implied energy within it, which carries a kind of communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given in Sarasota, Florida.

Greetings, dear ones, I Am Kryon of Magnetic Service. The energy of the day is so different than when my first experience took place with my partner. So much has taken place in the way we expected. My partner teaches about potentials verses reality, and when I met him in 1989 the information I presented was as real then as it is now. I told him that there would be no nuclear war at the millennium; there would be a change of consciousness instead and that the magnetic grid of the planet would move. Now science has established a connection between Human consciousness and that very grid I spoke of. Everything I mentioned has taken place.

What I present next is one of the most esoteric things you can imagine: I will tell the story about free choice and where it has taken you and about Human consciousness development. It's not complex, but if you just tuned in, it may be a little strange.

Humanity has free choice, not just to do what it wishes to do without intervention from Spirit, but it also decides where it takes itself and the energy and level of its own consciousness. Humanity decides how it works and thinks and if it cooperates with itself or not. This is the free choice of humanity. This entire free choice puzzle is not a test of the Humans, but rather it is a test and battle between dark and light.

We have told you that your soul is eternal and that you live over and over and over. Your life experiences on this plant are vast and many. Do you think it's possible through many generations that you might be able to raise yourself from your bootstraps, increase the consciousness of humanity, and graduate into that which is peace on Earth? If so, it would require a totally different paradigm of existence. Can you change this much? I came in 1989 because that is the exact potential now, and it's measured by something that I will now speak of.

Your Immediate History

The entire reason that things took place in the 1980s the way they did is the "wild card" that you experienced, which was the fall of the Soviets. This was not only unexpected by your experts, but it was shocking to all of the planet. These big, unexpected shifts are tellers, messages of changing times, and of an increased consciousness for humanity. Human nature is beginning to change, to grow up and get out of that which I call "the playground of consciousness" and move into a more grown-up "elegance of consciousness". This will be one that creates togetherness and peace, which is just the beginning of a new kind of Human and a new kind of society.

I told you earlier that we might title this communication, "Hearing the Voice of Spirit" or "Hearing the Voice of God". This, of course, is a metaphor. People who tune in spiritually don't normally hear a voice from the sky. Hearing the voice of Spirit is a metaphor for being tuned in to the intuition from your own Higher-Self. The Higher-Self is that spiritual part of you that connects with your eternal soul. It is what most seekers strive to connect with and it gives you help with your own life, and in that, helps the planet.

The reason this intuition is so hard to hear or discern is that there's a low, constant drone, you might say, which is a metaphor for a noise or rumble that seems to obfuscate, or cover up, the message. It's like trying to hear something while there is a constant noise. It's the best metaphor we can give of how massive darkness can cover light. But the noise level of this drone is starting to decrease. So, what happens when you get a better, clearer message? You change; the world changes; those around you also hear better and even those who don't want to hear it will still know there is something different happening.

Again, this hearing is a metaphor. The meaning is really discerning the intuition of what has integrity or not, what's going on with your own life, and the ability to enhance the feeling of coming potentials. All of that is hearing the voice of Spirit. It's the Human Being starting to "grow up" and have a higher consciousness.

The Relationship of DNA to Consciousness

Now, the hardest thing for us to teach is what my partner has been teaching for some years. It's hard because it's not something that you have been told before in this way. Your consciousness is related to your multidimensional body. The easiest way for you to approach this idea is this metaphor: Your DNA is not working at 100 percent. Instead, it's working in the thirties percentage area. It's not even performing at half of what it was designed to do. There is no instrument that is going to clamp around your DNA and give it a percentage reading. But this measurement metaphor is the best we can do to tell you where you are at when it comes to the potential consciousness of humanity. I want to give you some information that you need to understand - how this all started and what happened.

If you had to start a test of consciousness on the planet, the fairest thing would be to have it equal or midpoint of low and high. For this metaphor, you would have to start with the same amount of light and dark. That's the way it was in the beginning. That is the design.

We have given you the history of humanity in the past. Your entire history is extremely short, for the galaxy and your solar system have been here for more than 4 billion years. Yet humanity as you know it really only started 200,000 years ago. I didn't say, "Humans", I said, "Humanity as you know it", for the entire test started with the creation story, the seeding of the knowledge of light and dark. I'm speaking of Humans with altered DNA - you with only 23 chromosomes. Then there was another 100,000 years to have this develop for all Humans. Then Lemuria and some other "seed areas" helped with the teaching for another 50,000 years. When the seeding was really finished and the test was working, it was only yesterday! You're new! If you looked at the length of time Earth has been here as a 24-hour clock, then you compare when an “aware" Human got here, you would have arrived at the last second! All of known history happened in the last second of this time clock!

The irony is that those listening to this, and some of those in the audience, have been there for all of it. Old soul, we've given you this explanation many times: You remember from your Akash what you think to be Atlantis, sinking islands, wars and chaos. It just means you've "been there and done that". You've seen the cataclysms and you've been there when many historic things took place. They are etched into a memory you can't really sort it out well, but you carry it with you. What it means is you are an old soul and, perhaps, you helped start the planet!

The Sisterhood [referring to the Lemurian Sisterhood as created by Dr. Amber Wolf] is a great example. For those of you who feel inclined to come to the Sisterhood gatherings, you will celebrate a beginning consciousness that "rings" within you as a positive ancient memory. It celebrates a time when women were given credit for their intuitive power and were the shamanic leadership of society. Who better to do this than the life-givers of all humanity? It represents a time, in the beginning, of equality and wisdom that was the beginning of the light/dark test.

The DNA, at the beginning of the test, was set at 30 percent. Now, standby because I told you the beginning was equal, but this doesn't sound equal, does it? The percentage quickly went to 35 - quickly, to create a fair test, because that is where it belonged (35%) to have full equality with the darkness. Now, stay tuned and listen, and you will learn why this is fair. I'll give you something you should know: These numbers show you the power of light over dark. When you had the 35 percent of DNA working, it was balanced with the 65 percent of darkness on the planet.

Now, for those of you who don't really understand these numbers, let me explain. The balance of light and dark was indeed equal, but because light is more powerful, it only took 35 percent of light to make that happen. This ought to show you that the dark is weaker than you are. You had less of a percentage of the planet of light, and yet you were equal to a larger percent of darkness. Light is more powerful, and you don't need as much of it to be equal, even with a lower consciousness.

The Process of Percentage of Efficiency of DNA

Now let me tell you something about what happens at 35 percent of DNA efficiency. It shows up in consciousness as well as biological efficiency. At 35 percent, there is an intuitive understanding of gender balance on the planet - who does what and why. This is what is celebrated today in the Lemurian Sisterhood gatherings. It was a time when the genders of Earth respected one another and understood that the feminine gender is the one that is more in touch with Spirit. Not only were women a bit more in touch with multidimensional things, but they are the ones who mother all of humanity (both genders) as teachers of the children. All men are held and adored and taught by the mother. Therefore, they are the ones who would help guide all the societies of Earth.

With free choice, the percentage of DNA efficiently started to go down as humanity grew. As soon as the DNA started to lose percentage, the gender balance was dysfunctional. If you want to have a test of any society, anywhere on the planet, and you want to know the DNA percentage number [consciousness quota] as a society, there's an easy test: How do they perceive and treat their women? The higher the DNA functionality, the more the feminine divine is honored. This is the test! Different cultures create different DNA consciousness, even at the same time on the planet. So you can have a culture on Earth at 25 percent and one at 37 - and if you did, they would indeed clash.

In the Middle Ages, or perhaps before, the planet went to 25 percent. If you doubt that, all you have to do is look at gender dysfunction. The women went from being respected and being the shamans to second class, even third class, then they were seen along with the animals. No balance at all! That's what happens when the percentage starts to dip in a survival mode consciousness. There is no elegance in consciousness during this time and no appreciation for art or culture. There is instead the dysfunctions of war, hatred, uncaring, anger, drama and perpetuation of horror.

Then recently, the average percent started to go up again, and you hit the 30 and 31 mark. History showed that women were finally seen and the respect again began to be rekindled. It happened slowly and it's very telling. In more elegant societies, women were partially given the right to vote and then it got better. You went to an average of 32. That's when the Soviet Union fell over, disabling a nuclear war at the millennium. That's also when you celebrated the Harmonic Convergence, and I arrived to begin to train my partner in 1989.

Oh, dear ones, there are still those on the planet who feature tremendous gender dysfunction. Lower consciousness society can't "look up" to see anything better. Darkness can't see the light, and we told you about this back in 1993. Someday you will look backwards in history and say, “What was wrong with us? Why didn't we see the obvious?" When DNA is at 25 and 30 percent, the strongest win. It's a survival consciousness and very little else matters. If you wish to see a balanced society working at 35 and above, look at the gender balance. Respect and appreciation will be there.

Learn from the Ancients

Let me give you something else that my partner always talks about: Find the oldest society, the most long-lived culture on the planet. Then look at the teaching of their elders to find out what they believed in the past and did. What do their records say? Let me tell you what the records say: Women were the shamans! It was acknowledged that they had better intuitive ability. Imagine having somebody able to guide you, who could see and feel the voice of God? It was clear to them! That's gender balance. The men knew it and depended upon it, and the women depended upon the men to do the things that men do best, to hunt and gather and provide. Gender balance! This system is still around in many of the indigenous societies of this planet who have been around a very long time. It never changed.

Continuing the History

When the DNA percentage got to 32, I spoke to my partner and gave him the choice to tune in [1989]. The snowball of an advanced DNA was rolling. This planet was starting to lift itself up on its way to 35, on its way to an equal balance again. Perhaps it will even go to 36, where dark would run the other way.

Dear ones, we told you that 35 percent was equal dark/light, but you've never seen that in your lifetime until right now! In fact, it's getting higher than that and dark is running the other way. It's coming out of the woodwork, as they say, indicating that it's being squeezed out of many places where it formerly hid. Imagine a dark army on the planet who can recruit young people even from your own country! This dark army is not recruiting Americans, it is recruiting darkness! This represents Humans who are invested in darkness and have a very young Akash and a very old consciousness. They willingly will be dysfunctional with the others, and they haven't got a clue about what's really happening. Darkness cannot look up to a higher level. A fool doesn't know he is a fool. Listen to me, darkness cannot look up and see light. It's blind to higher purpose. It only sees the strength of dark. It doesn't understand light, so it's not wise and can be defeated. It doesn't understand that it is going to lose. All it can see is itself. It's so obvious, is it not?

What is happening now supports what we are saying. What is going on right now on this planet? We said it earlier: Right now as I speak, you have the most dysfunctional politics you've ever had in this country. The reason? There is massive change going on! The fighting, drama and seemingly odd behaviors of many represent those who are tired of an old establishment government that is itself dysfunctional. The thought is, "Anything would be better than what we have now and the past!" This is what happens when higher consciousness can see something better as it starts to grow from a lower one that it has been participating in.

This is different for all of you, and it's because of a continued increase in the percentage of DNA. It's for everyone, and not just for those who might be in a belief system like those in this room. Integrity, transparency and the longing for systems with integrity that actually work for people is at hand. It is the longing for integrity in high places instead of dysfunction. It's an awakening! You have a population that is tired of an old energy because it's starting to hear the voice.

Who "Hears" It?

The voice of Spirit is for all humanity and not for a select few. However, the select few who are old souls will understand it better and be able to discern and know better what the message is about. As the noise, confusion and the drone of darkness start to become more equal to the light, many will start hearing Spirit for the first time. They won't know it's Spirit, but instead it will be "the sense of what's better for us" and an intuition that is new. For the masses who are not interested in being in this room, all it is to them is a new beginning, a new awareness. They don't know what they're hearing or feeling. They just know they want change and a new feeling of "what's right". Old souls on this planet will recognize this clearer message for what it is and will start receiving messages and guidance from it. That's the difference! But all humanity is aware of the change at some level.

You're creeping toward 36. Even with the things that are around you, as you defeat the darkness on this planet, you'll be at 36. Now, that means you're winning. It also means the drone of noise that hides the voice of God is going to start diminishing, and things will start to clear up regarding understanding the messages. Intuition won't sail by so fast as it has in the past, where you are not certain what you heard. Intuition will stick around longer and will speak to you in a clearer voice. You may even be able to stop it and examine it!

The problem with intuition at the present is that it's covered by the drone-noise. This is a metaphor, dear ones. I hope you understand. Covered by the drone means that your intuitive thoughts are elusive and soft because this underlying energy keeps it from being seen and heard clearly. The logic inside your brain keeps stuffing it down all of the time, saying, "It's not accurate. It's just your wishful thinking or your imagination." This is all part of that which is the lower percentage number of your DNA. As the percentage starts to creep toward 36, everything changes. The logic of your brain changes, because it's in the DNA. There is an awakening, a more efficient DNA, and you start to think differently. All the things regarding Human nature that you've been told about in psychology studies start to morph into something else entirely. Wisdom becomes intuitive, not something that you wish you had. Society starts to change in general. Solutions to the unsolvable begin to appear. New, wiser thought starts to be heard on the media as humanity starts to grow up and graduate from the playground of rock throwing and name calling. Programs to help each other really start to work. Funding is far more available for projects that make a difference for the poor.

You're at 35. There's an equality here, you're starting to see the dark and light, and it's changing everything. You take a look at history and you've come a long way, but it took a long time to get here. Dear ones, we've seen this process before and the snowball is rolling. There isn't anything in the way that's going to stop it. In the path of this snowball of higher consciousness are all kinds of things that will be run over and perish. Part of this is what you call "the establishment". Watch for some very big established things to fall over! The snowball will simply knock them down.

Don't be alarmed and don't think it's the end of the planet when certain kinds of things happen that create fear, for this is just about being at 35, going to 36. Remember, the darkness is starting to react and be afraid of the light. The results are a battle where darkness will try its best to beat up your light and make you afraid. However, you're in the right place at the right time and will prevail.  I've said enough.

When you walk out of here, I hope you understand this message. Listen to it again if you have to. It's about that which is the light and dark quotient of the planet and where you are. It's about the fact that you're winning, and that's why I came. It's hard to talk to those who are winning when they've never won before and they have a consciousness of loss. That's what you're working on the most. Stand tall when you leave this place and know who you are. This message of Kryon never changes, for it represent the truth.

And so it is.

Dutch lawyer starts criminal case against tobacco firms

DutchNews, April 29, 2016

Photo: DutchNews.nl
A Dutch lawyer and lung cancer patient are planning to take tobacco companies to court for for producing cigarettes designed to turn people into addicts as quickly as possible. 

Lawyer Benedicte Ficq and cancer victim Anne Marie van Veen are putting together a criminal case against cigarette producers, arguing that out of court settlements do not go far enough.

‘I want to see tobacco firms prosecuted for deliberately damaging people’s health,’ Ficq told television programme RTL Late Night. 

Tobacco firms cannot hide behind the freedom of choice of people to smoke because they are deliberately influencing smokers’ behaviour, Ficq and Van Veen argue. 

Poison

‘To limit that freedom, addictive chemicals such as nicotine and other additives are put into cigarettes,’ they say. ‘And [the companies] overcome our natural aversion to poisons by adding substances like menthol.’ 

Nor does the argument that the government does not ban smoking hold water, Ficq said. ‘If I fed my children rat poison every day and they eventually die, I would be prosecuted for murder,’ she said. ‘The tobacco industry is simply getting away with it.’ 

Ficq and Van Veen are appealing for other people to sign up to their campaign.

"The Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Old Energy, Recalibration LecturesGod / Creator, Religions/Spiritual systems (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it), Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse), Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) (Text version)

“… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. 

The Next Ones to Fall

There's something potentially coming that you should know about, and I've reported it before two other times. But I want you to hear it again. What other very large industries don't have integrity, but also have a great deal of money? Prepare for the crumbling of big pharma in America. It is starting now and when the reports happen and the movie is created [smile], Americans will wake up to the fact that they have an enormously wealthy industry that keeps people sick for money.

You're not going to like it and you're not going to tolerate it. Watch. What I say today is not fortune telling, dear ones. I am reporting the potentials of Human nature before me. I'm reporting that awareness is starting to grab that which is inappropriate on this planet, what you call old energy, and slowly is beginning to move it to a place you never thought it would go. It's a place of integrity that your parents told you was impossible for large institutions, but here you are living it. Along with this also will be changes in the very large business of insurance, as we told you before. …”



“…I'm in Canada and I know it, but I will tell those listening and reading in the American audience the following: Get ready! Because there are some institutions that are yet to fall, ones that don't have integrity and that could never be helped with a bail out. Again, we tell you the biggest one is big pharma, and we told you that before. It's inevitable. If not now, then in a decade. It's inevitable and they will fight to stay alive and they will not be crossing the bridge. For on the other side of the bridge is a new way, not just for medicine but for care. Paradigms that have not yet been thought of, which don't represent any system that currently exists, will be created and developed by young minds who have concepts that the seniors don't know about. Things that don't have integrity today will fall over tomorrow. Just get ready. It's all part of what's on the other side of the bridge. And the old energy won't like it, and they will object. …”

Antibody shields monkeys from 'HIV' for months: study

Paris (AFP) - Just one shot of a lab-produced antibody protected macaques against a sort of monkey HIV for nearly six months, said a study Wednesday into a potential vaccine alternative.

Exposed to simian HIV (SHIV) once a week, non-treated monkeys contracted the virus after just three weeks on average, the researchers said, whereas the trial monkeys remained virus-free for up to 23 weeks.

In human populations at high risk of contracting the AIDS-causing virus, such protection, even temporary, "could have a profound impact on virus transmission," the team of German and US-based researchers reported in the journal Nature.

They had examined "passive immunisation" as an alternative to an HIV vaccine, which experts fear may still be years off.

A vaccine works by priming the body to respond with germ-fighting antibodies whenever a virus or bacteria invades. It is long-lasting, sometimes for life.

"Passive immunisation" involves the transfer of antibodies generated by one person directly to another to provide protection, which is shorter-lived.

Antibody shots were used to protect travellers against Hepatitis A until a vaccine became available in the 1990s, and some hope the technique could stave off millions of HIV infections until a vaccine comes to the market.

Transferred antibodies had previously been shown to protect animals against HIV-like viruses for a day or two, but never as long as in this study.

Proof of concept

Since the outbreak started in the early 1980s, about 71 million people have been infected by HIV, and some 34 million have died, according to UN estimates.

There is no cure, and the only way of dealing with HIV is lifelong reliance on antiretroviral drugs, invented in the 1990s, to stop the virus from replicating.

The treatment carries side effects and is costly.

The quest for a vaccine has been long and frustrating, in spite of hundreds of millions of dollars in funding.

Some of the focus has shifted to antibodies, but this too proved complicated as each HIV antibody tends to target a specific virus strain.

In recent years, researchers have discovered that about 10-30 percent of HIV-infected people have a naturally-present, "broadly-neutralising" (bNAb) type of antibody which targets several strains at once.

Three of these were tested in the new study.

Each delayed infection in macaque monkeys, said the team -- the first by up to 12 weeks, the second by 20 weeks, and the third by 23 weeks.

A single antibody shot "was protective against repeated low-dose SHIV infection for several months," the team wrote.

This served as "proof of concept" that periodic antibody shots may be useful as an alternative to vaccination, they said, though further research must confirm that the findings can be replicated in humans.

"When considered in the context of a potential exposure to HIV-1 in regions of the world where HIV-1 is endemic," wrote the team, such an infection barrier "could have a profound impact on virus transmission".

Dutch ‘horror’ dentist jailed for eight years in France, banned for life

DutchNews, April 26, 2016

A Dutch dentist who was extradited to France to face charges of mutilating patients has been jailed for eight years and banned from practising his profession for life. 

Mark van Nierop was charged with mutilating 120 patients without medical need between 2008 and 2012 at his practice in Chateau-Chinon. Van Nierop is said to have pulled healthy teeth, broken people’s jaws and left broken bits of equipment in patients’ gums. 

Van Nierop, 51, was tracked down in Canada in September 2014 and extradited to the Netherlands on an international arrest warrant. A Dutch court ruled then he could be sent to France for trial. 

The Dutch public prosecution department is currently investigating events at the practice he had in The Hague before moving to France, ANP said last month.

Gay couple wins custody of surrogate child Carmen in Thailand

A homosexual American-Spanish couple has won the right to keep their child, Carmen. Complications ensued after the girl's surrogate mother decided to keep the baby after realizing that the couple was gay.

Deutsche Welle, 26 April 2016


Bangkok's Juvenile and Family Court ruled on Tuesday that US citizen Gordon Lake (pictured above, left) was Carmen's legal guardian, his lawyer, Rachapol Sirikulchit, told reporters.

"The court has granted legal custody of Carmen Lake to Gordon Lake, my client, and my client is her only guardian," the attorney said.

Lake's partner, Spaniard Manuel Santos (pictured above, right), was elated at the verdict. "We won," he told journalists, adding, "We are really happy… This nightmare is going to end soon."

Santos and Lake had been stuck in Thailand since January 2015, when Carmen was born. The two have been living off of finances from a crowdfunding website where they had appealed for help.

Lake is Carmen's biological father, while the egg came from an anonymous donor. After Carmen's birth, her surrogate mother Patidta Kusolsang gave the baby to Lake and Santos.

Manuel Santos and his partner have been stuck in Thailand for nearly 15 months

Although Carmen had been living with the couple since her birth, her surrogate mother changed her mind and did not sign the documents to enable Carmen to obtain a passport. The two men were told that Patidta did not know they were gay before handing over the child.

Lake's same-sex marriage with Santos became a problem in Thailand, which does not recognize homosexual unions. However, the 41-year-old American insisted the matter had been clear ever since they tied up with surrogacy agency New Life, which has branches in several countries.

This was further complicated by a ban on surrogacy in 2015 following a series of scandals involving foreign adoptions. However, the ban took effect only after Carmen was born.

In one high-profile case, an Australian couple was accused of abandoning a baby with Down's Syndrome, while taking away her twin back home with them. In another scandal, a Japanese man had 15 babies with surrogate mothers.

Drugs companies paid nearly €52m to doctors, hospitals last year Business

DutchNews, April 25, 2016

The pharmaceuticals industry spent nearly €52m sponsoring Dutch doctors and healthcare institutions last year, the Volkskrant reports on Monday.

This is a rise of 36% on 2014, according to research by the healthcare transparency monitor Transparantieregister Zorg

Of this, €8.6m went to 3,814 doctors. Most doctors just did one sponsored job for the pharma firms, but the best paid picked up €127,000 for working for the industry. Patient groups picked up €2.2m. 

Most of the cash which went to care institutions was also spent on one-off projects although the biggest earner picked up €1.7m. In addition, one institution carried out 148 projects for drugs companies, the Volkskrant says. 

Openness

Doctors’ organisation KNMG told the Volkskrant it would look carefully at the figures but pointed out fewer than 7% of doctors actually earn money on the side from the pharmaceuticals industry. 

The sector’s own lobby group Nefarma said the amount of sponsorship money has gone up because openness about sponsorship has led to an increase in such arrangements. 

The names of the hospitals and doctors which earn money from the pharmaceuticals’ industry will be published in the register later on Monday.

Chemotherapy for breast cancer not always necessary: Dutch researchers

DutchNews, April 18, 2016

Women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer often receive additional chemotherapy to prevent metastases but many of these women are undergoing a stressful therapy they may not need, according to researchers at the Netherlands Cancer Institute

The institute has developed a test which can be used to predict which women with hormone-sensitive early-stage breast cancer need additional chemotherapy and which do not. 

The MammaPrint test determines the activity of 70 genes in the tumour tissue. These results can be used to predict the personal risk for each patient of the tumour spreading elsewhere in the body. 

The results of a large European study involving 6,693 patients has provided ‘the final evidence of the test’s reliability’, the institute said on Monday. 

Low probability

This study showed that patients with hormone-sensitive breast cancer and who had been found to have a low probability of metastasis by the MammaPrint test, do not need chemotherapy. Previous minor studies have tentatively shown the same result.

 ‘In both groups the percentage of women remaining disease-free in the following years, remained the same, namely 95%,’ said Emiel Rutgers, a surgeon at the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek hospital, who coordinated the study. 

Every year 14,000 women in the Netherlands are diagnosed with breast cancer. Some 80% have hormone-sensitive breast cancer.

“…  Biology and Intent

Let's talk more about biology because now it gets a little more complex. There is an intermingling of the 3D and the quantum that we wish to describe to you now. It's something that is new, for the vibration of this planet and of humanity, especially of those who are working with the light, is creating a new tool set. You're going to start to see it and it's going to be visible through examination of the 3D chemistry of DNA, even at the 3D level.

Science is now looking at what they call markers in the protein-encoded DNA, which creates the Human genes. These markers, as they are described by science, are those that are the pieces and parts that would indicate predispositions - attributes that might weaken certain cells so that later in life they would allow disease, such as cancer. They're starting to see these markers, perhaps in certain families where mothers and daughters and their daughters and their daughters all had the same kind of disease. They're starting to see the genetic markers that create predisposed weakness.

Let's talk about the markers, for this is the first time we have disclosed this. First the premise: For years we have told you that your intent to talk to your cellular structure has power. This intent is your communication to the DNA field to alter something within the 3D cellular structure. You might say it's your own interdimensional "voice" giving instructions to the quantum part of your DNA, which then results in the actual chemical changes that are occurring in the codes within your 3D genome. But now the results are going to be seen, and you can begin by removing the markers, and when you do, they stay removed. This means that something quantum you do today can change the chemistry of your gene-producing DNA so greatly that it will NOT be passed to your children. You can break the chain.

Blessed are the Human Beings who realize that as they purify their lives with the light of the Creator, it will affect the biology of the protein-encoded parts. You can erase the markers. It's one of the first times that the 3D has intermingled with the quantum so that science can someday look at the same Human Being over time, knowing that DNA never changes... yet it did! It's yours and it's unique and you changed it. There will be no answer for them, but the 3D facts will show it, that you eliminated the marker.

The joy of this and the beauty of this is that the lineage of the young women who do this will be shown, for their daughters will not have the disease, nor will the daughters of their daughters. It's a new gift and reflects the power of the times. Can you really change those who are your children-to-be? Indeed!

I know what you are thinking. The crowd who sits here says, "Well, it's a little late, Kryon. I've had my children. So why do you sit here and tell me these things?" Are you not understanding where this message is going? Are you not understanding the profundity of what happens when old souls allow us to give this information to Earth? Do you not understand your energy has generated the allotment of allowance for us to come in today and give you this, so that young women and young men who are Lightworkers each will hear it and know what it means to them? Do you understand you're your own ancestors? Has this occurred to you? I see you as actual history, sitting in the chair, from all over the world! That's what I wanted to tell you today.

You don't each have one name to me. I don't even see the gender that you are. I see you in a quantum state and that's why it's so profound that you would let us come in and visit you in this fashion. The woman sits in the chair in front of me. She has no idea the warrior she's been, or how big she was when she was a man. Yet she carries around with her the feeling of the warrior and she knows she's strong. I look at the big, burly man and I see the mother toiling with all those children and the man knows it. He can feel it. He's sensitive and can actually feel the love of a mother. Who is it he used to be? And how has it affected him today? ..."

More people sworn to secrecy over medical error compensation deals

DutchNews, April 15, 2016

Photo: Depositphotos.com
At least 21 patients and relatives have reported signing a gagging agreement when reaching a settlement about poor care or medical errors, the Volkskrant reports on Friday. 

Last week health minister Edith Schippers urged people to let officials know if they had signed a contract pledging not to make public comments about their case or withdraw complaints in return for payments. 

Her call followed news that the parents of 21-year-old man had signed such a deal after he died due to serious medical errors. They also agreed to withdraw a police complaint. 

The 21 contracts involve hospitals, psychiatric care services, care of the elderly and handicapped and pharmaceutical firms, the Volkskrant says. 

Schippers is looking into banning such gagging clauses, saying they are not a desirable development. 

Meanwhile, health ministry inspectors are examining all 21 cases which have been reported to them. ‘The role of the inspectorate is to monitor the quality and safety of care,’ the inspectorate said in a statement. ‘This sort of contract is a direct contravention of that.’

AkzoNobel settles mercury poisoning claim out of court

DutchNews, April 13, 2016

AkzoNobel has paid a former worker at its chlorine factory in Hengelo ‘several hundred thousand euros’ to settle a claim that his job made him ill, according to local paper Twentsche Courant Tubantia

The man claims he was poisoned by mercury while working as a mechanic at the plant in 2003. The factory was closed in 2005. 

A spokeswoman for AkzoNobel has confirmed the payment but refused to make any other comment about the specifics, news agency ANP says. 

She said it had never been proved the man had been poisoned but the opposite could not be conclusively proved either. AkzoNobel decided to settle after years of legal proceedings, she said.

She said the company tested the urine of everyone who works with mercury since 1951 and guidelines have never been exceeded. Workers who showed raised levels were immediately switched to other jobs, she said. 

‘We have always led the pack when it comes to safety,’ plant director Peter de Jong told Tubantia.

Jakarta. Deviating from his planned schedule, President Joko Widodo visited the Dr. M. Djamil Hospital in Padang, West Sumatra, on Tuesday (12/04).

The president observed the implementation of services offered by the Social Security Agency (BPJS) and the Indonesia Health Card (KIS).

"I made an impromptu visit, especially to see the implementation of the BPJS and KIS. Almost 35 percent [of patients] use the KIS and the rest use the BPJS," Joko said in a statement, after inspecting the state-owned hospital's class I general surgery room.

The president also asked several patients for their opinion of the state's health services.

"I asked the patients, and they said they were not being charged any fees, but the hospital had some complaints about payment," Joko said.

The president was accompanied by State Secretary Minister Pratikno and Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung during his inspection of the medical facility.

For some diseases, 'genetic destiny' can be averted: study

Yahoo – AFP, Marlowe Hood, April 11, 2016

mutations leading to any of hundreds of distinct genetic diseases (AFP Photo/
Georges Gobet)

Paris (AFP) - Scientists said Monday they had found a handful of healthy people each carrying a genetic mutation that should have condemned them to crippling disease or death.

The discovery, made by scanning the genomes of nearly 600,000 normal people, opens up a new approach to finding treatments for cystic fibrosis and dozens of other rare and incurable conditions linked to specific variations in a single gene.

Up to now, medical science assumed that anyone unlucky enough to have one of these so-called Mendelian mutations -- named after the 19th-century founder of modern genetics -- was doomed.

"Most genomic studies focus on finding the cause of a disease, but we see tremendous opportunity in figuring out what keeps people healthy," said Eric Schadt, a professor at the Icahn School of Medicine in New York City, and a main architect of the study.

"Millions of years of evolution have produced far more protective mechanisms than we currently understand," he said in a statement.

Together with colleagues Stephen Friend and Rong Chen, Schadt led a team of 30 researchers in sifting through data on nearly 900 genes from each person's genome, looking for the telltale mutations leading to any of hundreds of distinct genetic diseases.

A rigorous process of winnowing left them with 13 individuals who had gene variants that would normally result in one of eight debilitating conditions.

Besides cystic fibrosis, which inflicts severe damage on the lungs and the digestive system, these included Pfeiffer syndrome, characterised by a severe deformation of skull bones, and Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome, a disorder linked to multiple malformations and intellectual disability.

The results were published in Nature Biotechnology.

"These rare individuals must possess some combination of factors -- genetic or environmental -- that protects them from an otherwise crippling disease," Daniel MacArthur, a genomics researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital who was not involved in the study, commented in the same journal.

The next step would be to locate enough cases of people who have survived to adulthood despite these genetic flaws to identify -- and eventually duplicate -- these protective mechanisms.

'Genetic superheros'

Until recently, it would have been technically unfeasible to scan hundreds of thousands of human genomes in this manner.

"This study demonstrates the power of using big data to ask new biological questions," said Anne Wojcicki, co-founder and CEO of personal genomics company 23andMe, which participated in the project by providing access to data on more than 400,000 of its customers.

In a frustrating twist, however, the researchers were unable to follow up with any of the 13 people found because of limitations in the consent policies they had signed.

Experts commenting on the study said this was a regretable shortcoming that limited the value of the findings and would need to be changed in future research.

"Some of the patients may have had disease that went unreported," said Scott Hebbring, a scientist at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation and a professor at the University of Wisconsin.

Ada Hamosh, clinical director of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University, said mutation for cystic fibrosis were so unlikely in healthy people that the results may have stemmed from a "technical error."

The two cases of Pfeiffer syndrome, he added, could have been so mild as to not be detected as such.

But commentators agreed that the idea of scanning large populations to find individuals who are healthy despite carrying gene variants known to cause disease holds great promise.

"Achieving this goal will require incredibly large sample sizes," measured in millions not thousands, said MacArthur.

It will also need what he called "genetic superheros" to step up and dotate their genomic and clinical data so researchers can pick through them.

“.. Mining the Akash - The Role of Innate

What I'm going to tell next, we have given you before. However, I wish to explain it better in this communication. Your innate is also a governor of what you personally need. Let me explain: Turn a page with me. We have talked in the past about mining the Akash. So let us open that door for a moment. Is it possible, dear one, that you could go into the vast storehouse of the attributes of your past lives and pick out something that you need today? The answer is yes. It's called mining the Akash, and it is a staple of the Kryon teaching. However, the way it's accomplished by the individual Human is really difficult to describe. It's a personal intuitive process. However, one attribute of it that is often misunderstood is that permission from the innate is needed. This is because the innate smart body knows what you need. It is then the governor, or the filter, giving you permission regarding what can be pulled out of your Akash and used. It will say no to frivolous things and yes to the things that will allow you to cure yourself of disease, live longer, and increase the efficiency of your DNA. It's a smart body regulator.

Innate doesn't care how you look. It cares about your health. If you want to go into your Akash and pull out something that you need for survival, it's right there with you. If you want to make clearer skin, it won't respond. Do you see what I mean? It's the governor for mining the Akash. By the way, the Akash is very ready to be used for this. [Kryon wink]

You have earned what you've lived, dear ones, and it's very available. It lies in a quantum soup of lifetime information that is ready to be used. If you have a disease in your body right now, and perhaps you want to mine the Akash in a way that will create healing, you can. Like all nonlinear things, it requires a new, mature consciousness and practice to work. But the body is ready for you to "go get" the cellular structure of a past life that had no disease. The blueprint for this resides within you since you earned it and lived it. The innate is responsible for spontaneous remission! Science has no idea how a Human does this. The innate can help you "go get" the things within your earned Akash and place them into your cellular structure. That's how smart it is! Imagine clearing disease so completely that there is no sign it was ever there? It happens all the time. Imagine being able to drop a chemical dependency overnight? It's exactly the same principle.

Did you ever sit in a meeting and something is said or a feeling can happen, and you get chills? What are they? You might say, "They are chills of validation." Guess where they came from? The innate! The innate has the ability to signal you the truth. The brain does not. In fact, your brain will often get in the way. It's the brain that contains your box of belief. It's the brain that contains the perception of who you are based on experience and memory. It's your 3D survival instrument. But the brain can't give truth. It can only give you what it perceives as the truth, based on logical, processed, computed, synaptic reasoning and only based on your past experience.

Your brain can tell you not to touch the stove because of what happened once before. But it can't give you chills of validation from information it does not have. The intellect wants you to believe that your brain is supreme. However, the brain is only one part of the body system and not a very intuitive part. It is the innate that knows the truth. The innate is connected to the quantum parts of your DNA and, therefore, also knows of your spirituality and the truth of God inside. …”
