My Voice Doesn't Matter

Some argue: “My voice doesn’t matter!” Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-Founder & President of National Vaccine Information Center and I disagree. This is the most serious violation of human rights and civil liberties Barbara has seen in thirty years. “They tried to push through a similar mandate during the Bush Administration. The public outcry was so great they backed down,” said Barbara. “The public does matter but they have been made to believe they don’t.”

I hope every parent is knocked off their chair by the astonishing capacity their child exhibits every day. Recall – 700 new neural connections every second and each branch touches 10,000 to 20,000 other branches. Unbelievable! The environment is the teacher. Life, the senses, relationship and now names (times two) is the curriculum.

There Is No Controversy Over Vaccinations

The issue is Fully Voluntary Informed Consent.

Touch the Future, Kindred and ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) are working with NVIC (The National Vaccine Information Center) to protect the sanctity of our children’s health and our civil liberty. Our goal is a modest 5,000 Public Comments at the CDC each week, 20,000 by Mid-October. I posted my comment today.

Hormone-Altering Chemicals Part 2

Yesterday I shared an interview with Peat Myers that described: “If you take a little bit of Bisphenol A and put it in corn oil and feed it to a mouse while she’s pregnant, and the amount fed to the mouse is equivalent to two parts per billion of her body weight, that a male mouse in her womb will grow up with a prostate that’s much bigger than it should be. And also its structure has been changed so that it’s hypersensitive to hormone stimulation. For the life of that animal, it’s got a different prostate. It’s got one that’s predisposed to prostate problems.” As little as 2 part per billion of some chemicals found in the environment is enough to alter development for a lifetime.

Hormone-Altering Chemicals

By now most understand that widely used chemicals mimic hormones, estrogen in particular, but few know what this really means. This interview is one of those eye opening experiences. It changed fundamentally how I view and relate to environmental toxins. A must see.

Monsters Under The Bed

September snuck in like a clever thief. You can feel the days getting longer. Barbora, at twenty, is a sparkling young woman. She arrived a week ago, a Czech Au Pair, French for ‘on par,’ meaning equal, a member of the family for a year to help care for Carly and to create a rich bilingual environment. With much of her extended family in Europe it is important that Carly Elizabeth speak Czech, a challenging language to master.

Everyday Abuse

Holding my hand Carly Elizabeth stopped in her tracks. Walking down the street, a few yards ahead, were three large overstuffed derrières and a bright, bored four-year old. The swaggering behinds belonged to a set of grandparents and presumably to their son. Granny stopped the herd, grabbed the boy by the shoulder and smacked him in the seat, shaking him. “If you don’t shut up I’ll smack you again,” and she did. Predictably, the boy cried and the matriarch smacked him again.

Joseph Chilton Pearce January 14, 1926 – August 23, 2016

Sometimes it takes a lifetime to embody an insight our teachers share. Joe (Joseph Chilton Pearce) was like an idealized father, ideal in the sense of sharing together one’s passion. It is, I believe, every parent’s wish that their children see the light that illuminates our journey in the same way that every child wishes to be seen for whom they really are and not as an image to be compared.

Mommy’s Coming

New words keep popping like popcorn. Yes, every thing and every experience has a name; ball, eat, sit, run. Carly Elizabeth, just now two years young, which is still pretty new, mastered walking upright, an astonishing feat of balance and mobility, over twelve months ago. Now she is tackling the most complex and abstract capacity in the known universe, expressing and exploring meaning with symbols, metaphors and imagination. Not only is she naming, Carly is connecting name-symbols into metaphoric phrases; ‘mommy’s coming.’ The word ‘coming’ is extremely complex; on her way, will be here soon, implying time, the future. OMG! The concept that something is going to happen is enormous. Like a Tsunami the landscape of the mind changes and with such ease, such complete playful attention that never seems to stop. We and she seem to take this amazing capacity for granted, nodding and repeating after her, ‘yes, mommy is coming,’ and it’s off to the next miracle.
