“…… 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. ….”

US Doctors to Help Remove 90-Kilogram Tumor From Vietnam Man’s Leg

Jakarta Globe, August 24, 2011

Hanoi. A group of American doctors will travel to Vietnam to help remove an 90-kilogram tumor from a man’s leg, medical staff said Wednesday.

The meter-wide tumor has been growing on 31-year-old Nguyen Duy Hai’s right leg for more than 30 years, despite an amputation at the knee 14 years ago.

The tumor had grown 10 centimeters in diameter over the last month, and from 80 to 90 kilograms, said Le Hoang Minh, director of Ho Chi Minh tumor hospital.

Plastic surgeon MaKay McKinnon and four other doctors will arrive in November to try to remove the growth, the biggest ever recorded in the country, Minh said.

The growth has twisted Hai’s spine and pelvis and caused problems with his breathing and blood circulation.

Doctors would need eight to 14 hours to remove the tumor. The operation is dangerous because the growth is fed by major blood vessels, Minh said.

The hospital is covering Hai’s medical expenses because his family is too poor to afford another operation.

McKinnon has conducted several operations to remove large tumors which have receive widespread media coverage in recent years.

Anita Moorjani's Near Death Experience clears in 4 days, grade 4B lymphoma cancer

Anita was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and doctors told her family she was just hours away from death. It was at this point that she "crossed over" and then returned again into this world with a clearer understanding of her life and purpose on earth. This understanding subsequently led to a total recovery of her health.

Anita was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. Because of her background and British education, she is multi lingual and, from the age of two, grew up speaking English, Cantonese and two Indian dialects simultaneously, and later learned French at school.

She had been working in the corporate field for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April of 2002. Her fascinating and moving near-death experience in early 2006 has tremendously changed her perspective on life. Her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in the other realm. She works on the premise that our inner world (consciousness) is our primary reality, and if our internal state is healthy and strong, then our external world will align itself and fall into place as a result.

She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life's most adverse situations, as she is the living proof of this possibility.

Anita is a compassionate and empathic person who seems to have a gift for articulating and simplifying metaphysical concepts, so that they may be applied in our daily lives.

Govt urged to protect migrant workers through bilateral accords

Jakarta  (ANTARA) - The government should conclude bilateral agreements with countries that use Indonesian migrant workers regarding the latter`s rights and obligations, a non-governmental organization (NGO) said.

"Such agreements will provide protection for our migrant workers abroad and prevent violation of their rights," Nur Harsono, an activist of Migrant Care, said here on Tuesday.

Harsono made the statement in response to reports that a number of Indonesian workers abroad were facing various legal charges for criminal acts and heavy violations such as homicide and drugs.

About the 23 Indonesians in Saudi Arabia and around 300 more in Malaysia who were facing the death sentence, he said the government needed to actively conduct lobbies to obtain forgiveness or reduction of the their sentences.

Earlier, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in his annual state address said the government had formed a task force specifically undertaking the crucial diplomatic missions to defend Indonesian workers involved in legal cases abroad.

"Thank God, despite the highly-challenging nature of the mission, since every country possesses its own system of justice, our efforts have come to show some results. A number of Indonesian citizens facing death penalty have been granted forgiveness and sentence reductions," he said.

Learning from the experiences and lessons, he said, onward the supervision towards the preparation and dispatching of Indonesian workers by the private employment recruitment agencies (PPTKIS) would be constricted in order to ensure that the workers about to be dispatched had thoroughly comprehend the law, rules and norms applied in the destination country.

In relation to bilateral agreement with destination countries, the president said the government continues to work on diplomacy and negotiation with the government of the friendly countries, so that through the right MoU, Indonesia Work Forces could truly receive a good protection and assurance of their rights as well as their justice.

He added current policy to halt the dispatch of Indonesian workers to Saudi Arabia was also aimed to increase protection and right-assurance of the work force abroad.

"Truth to be told, the decision is in line with the acceleration and broadening of Indonesia`s economic development that we will undertake within the next 15 years, we hope there will be more job opportunities at home so that our brothers and sister will no longer have to work in informal sectors and become maids abroad. This is very important as it has to do with our dignity and self esteem as a nation," he said.

A Migrant’s Tale in His Own Words: From Central Java to the Netherlands

Jakarta Globe, Celia Mather & Slamet Heri, August 06, 2011       

Slamet Heri is from Cilacap, Central Java. Now 30, he has been living and working in the Netherlands since August 2006. The unique story, told in his on words, of how he ended up there says much about the life endured by migrant workers across the world.

(AP Photo)
Millions of Indonesians now go abroad for work. Because of his experiences, Heri is now the chairperson of the newly formed Indonesian Migrant Workers’ Union in the Netherlands. Journalist Celia Mather spoke to him in Geneva at a gathering of migrant workers to discuss the International Labor Organization’s convention for domestic workers’ rights. Here is Heri’s story.

“Originally, I got a degree in Teaching and Education Studies at university in Klaten, Central Java. Then, while waiting for a job, I got involved in voluntary work at a youth center, where I organized seminars on reproductive health and HIV/AIDS. I also got active in the Indonesian Youth Partnership and the Indonesian Aids Foundation. I funded these activities — and my studies — by working as a security guard at an asphalt factory.

“I heard about an opportunity to go for education and work experiences in Japan. They said I could get a job at an electronics factory and receive training in business studies. So I went to Jakarta for six months training to learn about the language, culture and how to work in Japan. For some reason the company pulled out midway. I still wanted to go to Japan. Unhappily, I had fallen into the hands of a bogus agency, one so bad I have called it a ‘mafia agency.’

“For over a year I stayed in Jakarta, waiting to go to Japan. I was unemployed but I had to pay the agency for accommodation and fees. It was all a scam. At one point, the agency even suggested falsifying my passport and sending me to the US. I didn’t want that. I wanted to go to Japan in my own name.

“I went back home for a while. Then one day the agency rang. All was now fixed. I thought, ‘At last I’m going to Japan.’ But no, they were sending me to Spain. They said that work permits, wages, accommodation were all guaranteed and I would be met at the Barcelona airport.

“None of it was true. There was no one to meet me and the other migrant workers off the plane. There were no work permits, just tourist visas for three weeks, and the contract was fake. For several days we paid for a hotel room and waited, but no one came. So we made a decision to survive, but not in Spain. We opened up a map of Europe and each one chose where to go. Some chose Germany or Switzerland. One headed back to Indonesia, still wanting to go to Japan — he is now working in South Korea.

“I chose the Netherlands, because Indonesia was a colony of that country and I thought there might be more Indonesians there. So four of us – two men and two women – bought bus tickets and got off in Amsterdam. We had only ten days left on our visas. And I knew my debt totalled about Rp 75 million [$8,850]. Luckily we met another Indonesian woman at the bus station and she found us a temporary place to stay. We spent the next days looking for other Indonesians who could help us find jobs. For a while we shadowed friends, learning how to do a job and how to communicate with employers. For about a year we were like that, three to a room.

“Many Indonesian migrant workers in the Netherlands are undocumented like I am. None that I know of have a work permit. Actually there is no official contract system between the Netherlands and Indonesia in the domestic work sector, only in some other sectors such as nursing. So most of us become domestic workers, cleaners and gardeners. Many are victims of fraud. There seem to be a lot of us. We often meet each other in the street.

“I have done a lot of different jobs: gardening, babysitting, cleaning, ironing, massage, construction, carpentry and painting. I have worked for registered companies, even though I’m undocumented.

“By 2009, I had gotten sick. I was diagnosed with a rare heart malfunction. I was treated for three months at home and then spent a month in hospital. It turns out that my heart functions only 8 per cent of what it should, and eventually the doctors decided to fit me with a pacemaker. With this, I couldn’t fly home. So the doctors and lawyers helped me get a residence permit. I didn’t have to pay any of my health care costs, thanks to my doctors, the [government] health care insurance and donations from friends. I am truly grateful. Now I pay into the social insurance system in Holland and I work as a volunteer organizer with the EuroMoslim Amsterdam foundation.

“In some ways, my illness was a blessing. Although I am an undocumented migrant, I was able to access the Dutch health care system.

“The idea for the Indonesian Migrant Workers’ Union in the Netherlands [IMWU NL] grew after some of us met with Filipinos in the Netherlands who had built such a group for themselves. They gave us a lot of advice. So we started off with a few people and on Jan. 2, we set up the IMWU NL. It is for any Indonesian migrant worker in the country.

“The FNV Bondgenoten trade union has given us help and some room space. From there, we provide information on migrants’ rights and health care access, legal aid, assistance in negotiating with employers, language courses and so on.

“Right now there is a proposal in the Netherlands to criminalize undocumented migrant workers. However, there is a coalition growing to fight this. We need recognition and respect because we certainly contribute to the economy. We are workers, not criminals. So we want the same rights as other workers, including such things as unemployment benefits and paid holidays.

For myself, I am looking for an employer who will get me a work permit. Then my status will change. Right now, I cannot go home to Indonesia and then return to Europe. I would really like to see my family again but, as I am still looking after my health, these are hard choices to make. Hopefully everything will work out fine.”

China arrests 2,000 in food safety crackdown

Antara News, Thu, August 4 2011

Related News

Beijing (ANTARA News/AFP) - China has arrested around 2,000 people and closed nearly 5,000 businesses in a major crackdown on illegal food additives, the government said, after a wave of contamination scares.

China launched the campaign in April following a spate of tainted food scandals -- included pork found on the market so loaded with bacteria that it reportedly glowed in the dark.

Nearly six million food businesses have now been investigated and more than 4,900 shut down for "illegal practices", the government`s Food Safety Commission said in a statement.

Police have also destroyed "underground" food production and storage sites, and arrested around 2,000 suspects, it said, adding that anyone found breaking the law would be severely punished.

China pledged to clean up its food industry after milk products tainted with the industrial chemical melamine -- added to give the appearance of high protein content -- killed at least six babies and sickened 300,000 in 2008.

In 2009 the country passed a food safety law to try to allay public concern.

But authorities have continued to discover bean sprouts laced with cancer-causing nitrates, steamed buns with banned chemical preservatives, and rice laced with heavy metals, prompting the latest crackdown.

Scientists credited on ghostwritten articles 'should be charged with fraud'

Legal experts call for severe sanctions against scientists who 'guest author' papers actually written by drugs companies

Doctors and scientists who put their names to medical articles they have not written should be charged with professional misconduct and fraud, according to legal experts.

The proposals aim to stamp out the shady business of "guest authorship", where research papers written by pharmaceutical companies or industry-sponsored medical writers are passed off as the work of influential, independent academics.

In the worst cases, doctors receive payments or other incentives to endorse articles without being familiar with the studies or data the reports describe. Often, the articles are biased and do not carry the names of the real authors.

The medical profession has long been troubled by guest authorship and ghostwriting, but the issue has become harder to ignore in recent years as the extent to which drugs companies use the tactic as a marketing tool has become clear.

Articles drafted by industry with minimal involvement from guest authors have been published in leading journals on hormone replacement therapy (HRT), Vioxx (an anti-inflammatory drug that was withdrawn amid safety fears), Neurontin (used in pain relief), antidepressants, and the combination diet drug, Fen-phen (also withdrawn for safety reasons).

While the practice is not currently considered to be illegal, it is widely regarded as unethical and potentially harmful to patients because it skews the information that appears in medical journals.

Writing in the journal, PloS Medicine, Simon Stern and Trudo Leemens, who are law professors at the University of Toronto, warn that measures brought in by publishers and professional bodies to curb guest authorship and ghostwriting have so far failed to tackle the problem. They call for more severe sanctions against those involved, even when the articles are scientifically accurate.

"It's a prostitution of their academic standing. And it undermines the integrity of the entire academic publication system," Leemens said.

"A guest author's claim for credit of an article written by someone else constitues legal fraud, and may give rise to claims that could be pursued in a class action," the authors write. The same offence could also support claims of "fraud on court" when drugs companies rely on ghostwritten articles in court cases. Stern and Leemens argue that pharmaceutical companies and the medical writers they sponsor may also incur liability for soliciting and facilitating fraud.

In 2009, a trove of documents relating to ghostwriting and guest authorship were released following a request in court by PloS Medicine and the New York Times. The papers revealed that Wyeth, a pharmaceutical company, had used ghostwriters to prepare 26 medical articles that emphasised the benefits and downplayed the risks of taking HRT for conditions such as heart disease and dementia. Government funded studies on the therapy were later stopped after the treatment was shown to raise the risk of breast cancer, heart disease and stroke.

Adriane Fugh-Berman, a doctor at Georgetown University Medical Centre in Washington DC, who was an expert witness for the women who brought the civil action against Wyeth, said the Canadian lawyers had put forward a "provocative proposal for a serious problem".

"Ghostwriting distorts the scientific literature on drugs and other therapies, and changes prescribing decisions in a way that may be harmful to patients. It is thus a threat to public health. Academic institutions give lip service to being against ghostwriting but no academic has been sanctioned. Fear of legal action really might deter the practice, which is euphemistically termed 'editorial assistance'," she told the Guardian.

Some journals, including PloS Medicine, have called for bans on guest authors and warn that unacknowledged ghostwriting will be retracted if discovered after publication, with the academics being reported to their institutions.

Fiona Godlee, editor of the British Medical Journal, said the practice continues to be a problem in the medical literature.

"Guest authorship and ghostwriting is absolutely unacceptable and we have been saying this for a long time. It is misleading, a form of fraud, and it would be good to see much stiffer penalites and legal liabilities for people who involve themselves in this," she said.

"The benefits of being a guest author are still substantial. You get a piece of work under your name that you didn't have to bother writing, the company involved will push to get it published in a high-profile journal, and visibility, promotion and all sorts of things come your way, not to mention international travel and speaking at conferences."
