Acupunture: From Quack Science to Proven Medical Treatment – Natural News

(via NaturalNews.com)

(NaturalNews) There are many alternative treatments that have been considered (and still are) as quack medicine by the all-seeing and all-knowing conventional medical model. However, as science and results began to prove their legitimacy, conventional wisdom was forced to acknowledge their efficacy. Acupuncture needles are one of those treatments that have gone from quack science to proven medical device, and scores of people are now experiencing its benefits.

How acupuncture works

In the 1960s, Professor Kim Bong Han and researchers in Korea attempted to prove the existence of meridians in the human body using microdissection techniques. They found evidence of an independent series of fine, duct-like tubes corresponding to the paths of traditional acupuncture meridians.

Fluids in this system sometimes flowed in the same direction as blood and lymph, but also traveled the opposite direction at other times. They realized that these ducts are different from the vascular and lymphatic systems that Western medicine had identified, and that meridians themselves might exist within them.

This meridian system was further validated by a French researcher, Pierre de Vernejoul, who injected radioactive isotopes into the acupoints of humans and tracked their movement with a gamma imaging camera. These isotopes traveled 12 inches along the acupuncture meridians within four to six minutes.

Vernejoul then challenged his work by injecting isotopes into blood vessels in random areas of the body rather than acupoints, and found that they did not travel in the same way at all, illustrating that meridians do contain a system of separate pathways within the body. …

Water Has Memory

As much as we use the substance everyday, and know how integral to life it is, water is still not completely understood. Precisely why there are a trove of scientists all over the planet running this seemingly simple liquid through a myriad of tests.

Konstantin Korotkov, a Russian scientist, who has conducted many experiments involving the energetic emissions of organisms, has found that the movement of water helps to structure the molecules.

“When we apply a strong movement to water, we dissolve water molecules, and they create active radicals” (these are not to be confused with “free radicals”, which are harmful to the body). Essentially, the jostling of the water causes the water molecules to interact and pair with the minerals and the smallest energetic constituents in the water, more efficiently and structure it. This is important because “our blood is a structured liquid, our liquids in our stomachs are all structured liquids,” says Korotkov.

The “purification” process used to treat water is efficient in removing potentially dangerous chemicals and ionic materials from water. However, Continue reading

The Language of Our New World – Coding

coders and rock stars

With our lives seemingly run for the most part by technology, and specifically electronic and computer-based technology, it’s not a bad idea for as many people as possible to even know the most rudimentary code. Be it simplistic web design, or full blown programs and computer coding, the human being is moving progressively into a world supported fundamentally by electronic counterparts, who speak a different language, but one that we all can learn and understand.

In the following short video, silicon surfing coders from Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, to The Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, express their experiences and encouragements for us to get into the field of coding and computer science to keep up with the technological direction that our world is driving towards.
