Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

John asks…

How long does the flu usually last for most people?

Ive been running fever off and on for 3 days now, and I feel alot better after drinking orange juice when i do. All I have is the chills sometimes when i wake up from my sleep at night and the night sweats sometimes.

admin answers:

A week. Until you really start to feel like yourself again. Longer in some people like young children and the elderly. Since their immune system is either under developed or impaired.

Joseph asks…

Has anyone heard of an association between chronic lyme disease and geographic tongue?

I have been diagnosed with chronic lyme disease, which I have had since childhood. I have also been experiencing geographic tongue since about the same time. Has anyone experienced this correlation, or know of a link between the two? Thanks.

admin answers:

If you’ve had chronic Lyme for years, it has had a huge impact on your immune system. An impaired immune system can allow all kinds of other problems–parasites, viruses, yeast, etc–to move in and set up housekeeping. Even if the Lyme didn’t “cause” the tongue condition, it may well have contributed to it by battering down the immune system.

People with long-term Lyme often benefit from detoxification protocols and immune system support, in addition to whatever antibiotics you may be taking.

Lisa asks…

What’s the difference between EFA and Omega 3 nutritional supplements?

I would like to know what the functions of each one of these are, and if they contain similar nutritional value.

admin answers:

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are necessary fats that humans cannot synthesize, and must be obtained through diet. EFAs are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids derived from linolenic, linoleic, and oleic acids. There are two families of EFAs: Omega-3 and Omega-6. Omega-9 is necessary yet “non-essential” because the body can manufacture a modest amount on its own, provided essential EFAs are present. The number following “Omega-” represents the position of the first double bond, counting from the terminal methyl group on the molecule. Omega-3 fatty acids are derived from Linolenic Acid, Omega-6 from Linoleic Acid, and Omega-9 from Oleic Acid.
EFAs support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. The human body needs EFAs to manufacture and repair cell membranes, enabling the cells to obtain optimum nutrition and expel harmful waste products. A primary function of EFAs is the production of prostaglandins, which regulate body functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility, conception, and play a role in immune function by regulating inflammation and encouraging the body to fight infection. Essential Fatty Acids are also needed for proper growth in children, particularly for neural development and maturation of sensory systems, with male children having higher needs than females. Fetuses and breast-fed infants also require an adequate supply of EFAs through the mother’s dietary intake.
EFA deficiency is common in the United States, particularly Omega-3 deficiency. An ideal intake ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids is between 1:1 and 4:1, with most Americans only obtaining a ratio between 10:1 and 25:1. The minimum healthy intake for both linolenic (Omega-3) and linoleic (Omega-6) acid via diet, per adult per day, is 1.5 grams of each. One tablespoon of flaxseed oil can provide this amount, or larger amounts of other linolenic-rich foods. Because high heat destroys linolenic acid, cooking in linolenic-rich oils or eating cooked linolenic-rich fish is unlikely to provide a sufficient amount.
EFA deficiency and Omega 6/3 imbalance is linked with serious health conditions, such as heart attacks, cancer, insulin resistance, asthma, lupus, schizophrenia, depression, postpartum depression, accelerated aging, stroke, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s Disease, among others.

Omega-3 (Linolenic Acid)

Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) is the principal Omega-3 fatty acid, which a healthy human will convert into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and later into docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and the GLA synthesized from linoleic (Omega-6) acid are later converted into hormone-like compounds known as eicosanoids, which aid in many bodily functions including vital organ function and intracellular activity.
Omega-3s are used in the formation of cell walls, making them supple and flexible, and improving circulation and oxygen uptake with proper red blood cell flexibility and function.
Omega-3 deficiencies are linked to decreased memory and mental abilities, tingling sensation of the nerves, poor vision, increased tendency to form blood clots, diminished immune function, increased triglycerides and “bad” cholesterol (LDL) levels, impaired membrane function, hypertension, irregular heart beat, learning disorders, menopausal discomfort, itchiness on the front of the lower leg(s), and growth retardation in infants, children, and pregnant women.
Omega-6 (Linoleic Acid)

Linoleic Acid is the primary Omega-6 fatty acid. A healthy human with good nutrition will convert linoleic acid into gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which will later by synthesized, with EPA from the Omega-3 group, into eicosanoids.
Some Omega-6s improve diabetic neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, PMS, skin disorders (e.g. Psoriasis and eczema), and aid in cancer treatment.
Although most Americans obtain an excess of linoleic acid, often it is not converted to GLA because of metabolic problems caused by diets rich in sugar, alcohol, or trans fats from processed foods, as well as smoking, pollution, stress, aging, viral infections, and other illnesses such as diabetes. It is best to eliminate these factors when possible, but some prefer to supplement with GLA-rich foods such as borage oil, black currant seed oil, or evening primrose oil.

Found in foods:

Flaxseed oil, flaxseeds, flaxseed meal, hempseed oil, hempseeds, grapeseed oil, pumpkin seeds, pine nuts, pistachio nuts, sunflower seeds (raw), olive oil, olives, borage oil, evening primrose oil, black currant seed oil, chestnut oil, chicken, among many others.
Avoid refined and hydrogenated versions of these foods.
Corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, and cottonseed oils are also sources of linoleic acid, but are refined and may be nutrient-deficient as sold in stores.

Omega-9 (Oleic Acid)

Essential but technically not an EFA, because the human body can manufacture a limited amount, provided essential EFAs are present.

Your Questions About If You Choose To Pull The Trigger

Helen asks…

according to what president JFK reported to the american people on the soviet arms buildup in cuba in 1962?

did the president do a good job of explaining both the situation and the reason the U.S. intended to take its chosen course of action?
did the speech help?

admin answers:

In a geopolitical world defined by real ideological conflict between the Communist Soviet Union and its allies, including Cuba, and the democratic United States and its allies, most people understood the stakes of nuclear war. And, most people understood what it meant. I know it’s fiction, but Skip Tyler in the Hunt for Red October movie makes the following observation, “When I was twelve, I helped my daddy build a bomb shelter in our basement because some fool parked a dozen warheads 90 miles off the coast of Florida.”

Yes, in the late 50s and 60s, we had nukes in Turkey and Western Europe that were minutes away from Soviet and Warsaw Pact countries. But, that was us and we trust ourselves not to do anything stupid. But, this is the Soviet Union putting nuclear warheads 90 miles from Miami. And, we don’t trust the Russians to not pull the trigger. Again, you have to understand the mindset in 1962 and not the mindset today. The great fear was that we were about to get attacked by the Soviet Union any day, that they were just waiting for the chance. And, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev was not seen as a man of peace. In 1956, he told Western diplomats, “We will bury you.” In 1960, in an angry response to a speech at the UN, he pounded the table with his shoe. And now he put missiles minutes away from Miami.

So, yes, JFK’s speech was effective in convincing Americans that nuclear war was close. And, bomb shelter sales went through the roof in October 1962….

Ken asks…

Help me choose anyone who is familiar with airsoft?

I was thinking of getting the g&g combat machine RK47 or the G4-A3 Tactical Carbine Blowback both from airsoft gi. And they both don’t come with a battery. High fps I think becuase I need to play on field.
Which one should I choose from airsoftgi?
So Thanks.

admin answers:

This might seem really long, but you’ll be much better off if you take the time to read over it.

If you want an AK, get a Cyma full-metal (and real wood stock if you want) AK47, they’re one of the best AK’s there are, and they’re cheap. If you want an M4, get a Combat Machine or Tokyo Marui (if you can afford that). Airsoft GI’s guns (the g4 series) are worse than a Combat Machine m4. They’re actually modified Combat Machine m4′s, just more expensive because they throw a bunch of external goodies on it, put in a blowback system (which stresses the gun and gives more opportunity to fail), and “upgrades” the gearbox, which is the functioning part of the gun. Thing is, if you “upgrade” any one part of the Combat Machine m4′s gearbox, it’s going to be too intense for the next part of the system. Like if they put in stronger metal gears, the gears are going to wear down the piston faster. So basically it’s bad for the gun what they do, it just looks cooler but will get destroyed faster. Also, high FPS means nothing at all. Remember this. NOTHING. High FPS is bad if anything. See, the way an airsoft gun shoots, is first, when you pull the trigger, it completes the circuit from the battery to the motor. So the motor starts to spin (the more stress on the motor, the slower it spins). The motor is spinning a series of gears, and the last gear of those is pulling back the piston. Halfway through one full spin, there aren’t any teeth on that gear, so it lets go of the piston and the spring pushes a bunch of air really fast out of a nozzle. Here’s a good animation of this all working: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/44/AEG.gif

So if you want to shorten that even more, motor turns gears, gears compress the spring with the piston, then let go and air pushes the BB. If you have more FPS, it means you have a stronger spring, because it’ll push the piston forward faster than a weaker spring. Remember how I said the more stress on the motor, the slower it spins? Yeah, stronger FPS, which means a stronger spring, means the motor has more work to do. Give it less work, and it will spin faster, which gives you more rounds per second. Obviously there’s other ways you can get more rounds per second (higher voltage battery, better motor) but this way will make the gun last long. Trust me, rounds per second matters WAY more than any FPS does. I’d say 340 fps max, because some places don’t allow you to go above 350, not even one shot, so 340 will keep you moderately safe. If you want an FPS increase without any stress on the gearbox, get a tight bore barrel. Don’t be fooled, a lot of places will say that a 6.01mm is better than a 6.03mm. This isn’t true at all. Unless you’re running a very expensive, very precise piece of weaponry, a 6.01 will only make your gun less accurate and will even drop FPS because there’s not enough air space for the BB to travel. A 6.03mm will stabilize the BB plenty and keep the FPS at a peak point. So if I were you, I’d get either the Cyma full metal/real wood AK47, and maybe downgrade the spring and put in a 6.03 tightbore if you want upgrades. Same thing with a Combat Machine m4. Both will end up being great beginner guns with high rounds per second and will last long. If you do get upgrades, find an airsoft tech to put them in for you. While you’re at it, get a Type 0 cylinder. Some cylinders have little holes in them, and despite what people tell you, they were initially created to drop the FPS of a gun because of FPS limits in Japan. They make it so you have to use a more powerful spring to get the same FPS that type 0 would bring you. So a weaker spring and a type 0 cylinder along with a 6.03mm barrel will give you a very nice piece of weaponry, and those upgrades aren’t too expensive. Just ask your airsoft tech what power of spring you should be using in combination with a type 0 and a 6.03mm to get around 350fps. I know it sounds nice to have a powerful gun shooting BBs fast, but really, you’re just starting out, and you have to make sacrifices. Everyone goes through their beginner stage where they want the perfect gun, but trust me, this way you will end up the happiest and with the most cash in your wallet. Just remember to use good BB’s (KSC perfect’s are good BBs. The heavier the BB, the more precise the shots will be, and unlike lighter shots, their FPS won’t drop too much after flying through the air a bit. Also a good, easy way to up FPS without unnecessary tension on the gearbox. I’d say get .30g KSC perfect BB’s). All of this can be found at Airsoft GI, by the way.

Have fun airsofting!!! :)

Donald asks…

If you had a choice between having a blood transfusion or bloodless surgery?

Which would you choose?

admin answers:

REALITY CHECK:

You don’t always get a choice. If it were up to me, EVERYBODY would have bloodless surgery, surgeons wouldn’t sever arteries, patients wouldn’t become coagulopathic, tumors wouldn’t grow into blood vessels, and everybody would be happy all the time.

But that isn’t the way surgery is. Actually, MOST surgeries do not require transfusions, cell saver blood, or any blood components, even albumen. But for those that do, we give it only when we absolutely need to. Severe anemia can cause heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and other long term problems.

If you refuse blood products, that’s your choice, and I’ll even give you your anesthetic (if your signed JW card or other notarized legal document is on the chart and you are over 18). Be aware, though, that you might not be able to find a surgeon. You can choose to kill yourself, but you can’t force a physician to pull the trigger. I recently saw a JW patient not get a heart bypass for that reason.

I encourage ALL of you NOT to bleed when you have surgery – it will make your anesthesiologist’s job SO much easier!

Can I take different vitamins together ?

I am planing to take the following:
- Multivitamins/Minerals
- Vitamin C 500mg
- Vitamin d3
- Magnesium
- Acetyl L-Carnitine/Alpha Lipoic and
- CoEnzyme

Can I take all of the together? When is the good time take them like breakfast or lunch or dinner?

admin answers:

I am not a doctor, but I have some personal experience with this – a couple of years ago I was taking several different vitamins together – a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, vitamin e, vitamin c, and a couple of others I no longer remember. I did this for about a two months, then stopped because my skin had started smelling like vitamins. About a month later, I found out I had developed a kidney stone. My doctor said the vitamin cocktail “definitely could have caused it.” I guess my point is, you should talk to your doctor before starting a regimen like this.

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

Daniel asks…

Which fairytale would be ideal to write about?

For English class, I have to write an essay over my favorite childhood fairytale. And honestly, I really don’t remember watching any fairytale movies or reading about them. My question is: What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

Or can you suggest a fairytale that has a deeper meaning besides the obvious?

I would appreciate any help that you can provide.

thank you!

H A P P Y H O L I D A Y S!

admin answers:

Most of the fairy tales WRITTEN by Hans Christian Andersen have a meaning so deep that not only are they not for children, they are not even for most adults.

For example, look at the tale The Little Mermaid. That pencil mustached Nazi RUINED it. (i.e. Walt Disney). But what did you expect? Disney ruins EVERYTHING! Look how he changed the entire meaning of Pinocchio, a book written by Carlo Colloidi.

In The Little Mermaid, she lives at the bottom of the sea. She wonders what life would be like in a higher world. That is OUR condition. Our level of consciousness is way below what it could be. Ascending to a higher level of consciousness is difficult work, fraught with peril. Still, if that is the only thing worth having, then the danger is simply to be noted and avoided, if possible.

She had to SACRIFICE something precious to her. It’s like this when a person wishes to achieve a higher level of consciousness. You can’t keep THIS world and have the higher world at the same time. Like Jesus said, you can’t put NEW wine into OLD skins. So she sacrificed her beautiful hair, she sacrificed her voice and she sacrificed a life without pain. Her new legs caused her agony to walk upon. IN THE STORY that is. Andersen’s story. Disney cleaned it all up and made it lukewarm.

In the end, she could not go against her conscience and kill the prince so SHE DIES. Except, she discovered a group of beings who called themselves “Daughters of the Air”. Where was that in the Disney version? It wasn’t there! Disney RUINED THE ENTIRE PURPOSE of the story. He was SUCH AN SSHOLE!!!

Another story by Andersen was The Nightingale. When we are able to penetrate the third state of consciousness, as Andersen CLEARLY had done, we have access to a higher mind. This mind is called Higher Emotional Center. It cannot manifest if we are in the second state of consciousness (ordinary consciousness). It can only come by penetrating the third state. The properties of Higher Emotional Center appear MAGICAL to ordinary consciousness. And aside from that, the sublime joy of having this center visit your common presence, your sense of self, is worth more than anything mere life has to offer. It’s a window into another world. A higher, profound and pure world.

Many genuine fairy tales are metaphors for lifting your consciousness into another realm. The themes are always about Beauty, Beasts, Higher versus lower, etc. Sleeping Beauty; Beauty and the Beast; Snow White and the seven DWARVES (a high life form versus a stunted life form). Even Hansel and Gretel has it’s roots in metaphysics. The wicked witch, the gingerbread house…

One of Andersen’s lesser known tales is The Garden Of Eden. That is ever so slightly tragic. You should borrow a book from the library that is a collection of Andersen’s tales. Some are better than others. Make up your own mind.

Mandy asks…

Should world bring Marxism to stabilize uncertain economic conditions around the globe?

admin answers:

Your question itself is wrong and needs a refinement!

Marxism cannot brought to this world by the present day government and rulers of the world ! The communists who were in power around the world have all collapsed like a pack of cards and many of them are literally wiped out with no trace! Moreover, the Marxism was not at all practiced and preached by the communists who ruled many nations but it was militaristic, dictatorial, inhuman and mostly barbaric when things were forced down the throat of people to accept the rulers own theory and therapy!

People of those nations themselves have traumatic experience to overthrow the party which was incidentally ANTI MARXIST AND ANTI COMMUNIST AND BECOME FULLY BLOWN BUREAUCRATIC CAPITALISM as we had seen the sea change in the attitude and conduct of the nation by the ruling communists! The world itself was watching in disbelief the perils of communism which was declared as socialism to start with when they came to power!

Honestly Marxism does not teach violence and man slaughtering and continued purging of people and democratic movement ! But the MARXISTS HAVE PRACTICED IT SO BARBARICALLY THE REAL BACKBONE OF MARXISM NAMELY THE WORKING CLASS THEMSELVES HATED THE COMMUNIST RULE AND WENT AGAINST THEM TO CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT AND THE SYSTEM OF GOVERNANCE!

On the other side the International Capitalism has grown to an unbelievably ugly in all its manifestations which has destroyed everything what the BEST OF CAPITALISM brought to this world!The power hungry politicians and their group with backing of powerful gangs of rich and all the mafia you can name playing the dirtiest of politics of every powerful nations destroying the wealth of their own people and the billions of people in the poor countries! In countries like India which they term as emerging economies or developing nations the whole social system is terribly filthy and making the people pauper day by day in millions!

Though the Governments, right from Barrack Obama of US, all are in terrible in trouble of DEBT TRAP and the people are pulled to historic low in living standards! However, Obama is left with no options then to take a SOCIALIST MEASURE OF SPENDING THE PUBLIC MONEY TO RESCUE BY WAY OF FEDERAL BAIL OUT FOR THE TWO TRILLION DOLLAR CITY BANK and many other bankers! From October 2008 to till date nearly 960 banks in USA have declared insolvency and have become totally bankrupt and closed!

YES, The world needs Marxism in principle but not by those who call themselves as Marxists but world major powers leaders have to sit, discuss, debate and bring those socialist measures in the most acceptable form for all and must follow for the benefit for the entire humanity as a whole!

Robert asks…

Why are the passages about Jesus choosing his disciples important for Christians today?

Mark1:14-20

admin answers:

Mark 1 (Amplified Bible) 14Now after John was arrested and put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God,
15And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent ([a]have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel).
16And passing along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon [Peter] and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net [to and fro] in the sea, for they were fishermen.
17And Jesus said to them, Come after Me and [b]be My disciples, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18And at once they left their nets and [[c]yielding up all claim to them] followed [with] Him [[d]joining Him as disciples and siding with His party].
19He went on a little farther and saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were in [their] boat putting their nets in order.
20And immediately He called out to them, and [[e]abandoning all mutual claims] they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and went off after Him [[f]to be His disciples, side with His party, and follow Him].
+++”II. Christ appearing as a teacher, here is next his calling of disciples, v. 16-20. Observe, 1. Christ will have followers. If he set up a school, he will have scholars; if he set up his standard, he will have soldiers; if he preach, he will have hearers. He has taken an effectual course to secure this; for all that the Father has given him, shall, without fail, come to him. 2. The instruments Christ chose to employ in setting up his kingdom, were the weak and foolish things of the world; not called from the great sanhedrim, or the schools of the rabbin, but picked up from among the tarpaulins by the sea-side, that the excellency of the power might appear to be wholly of God, and not at all of them. 3. Though Christ needs not the help of man, yet he is pleased to make use of it in setting up his kingdom, that he might deal with us not in a formidable but in a familiar way, and that in his kingdom the nobles and governors may be of ourselves, Jer. Xxxi. 21. 4. Christ puts honour upon those who, though mean in the world, are diligent in their business, and loving to one another; so those were, whom Christ called. He found them employed, and employed together. Industry and unity are good and pleasant, and there the Lord Jesus commands the blessing, even this blessing, Follow me. 5. The business of ministers is to fish for souls, and win them to Christ. The children of men, in their natural condition, are lost, wander endlessly in the great ocean of this world, and are carried down the stream of its course and way; they are unprofitable. Like leviathan in the waters, they play therein; and often, like the fishes of the sea, they devour one another. Ministers, in preaching the gospel, cast the net into the waters, Matt. Xiii. 47. Some are enclosed and brought to shore, but far the greater number escape. Fishermen take great pains, and expose themselves to great perils, so do ministers; and they have need of wisdom. If many a draught brings home nothing, yet they must go on. 6. Those whom Christ called, must leave all, to follow him; and by his grace he inclines them to do so. Not that we must needs go out of the world immediately, but we must sit loose to the world, and forsake every thing that is inconsistent with our duty to Christ, and that cannot be kept without prejudice to our souls. Mark takes notice of James and John, that they left not only their father (which we had in Matthew), but the hired servants, whom perhaps they loved as their own brethren, being their fellow-labourers and pleasant comrades; not only relations, but companions, must be left for Christ, and old acquaintance. Perhaps it is an intimation of their care for their father; they did not leave him without assistance, they left the hired servants with him. Grotius thinks it is mentioned as an evidence that their calling was gainful to them, for it was worth while to keep servants in pay, to help them in it, and their hands would be much missed, and yet they left it.

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

Maria asks…

According to Inuit mythology, what must one do in order to go to Adlivun?

is this where all people go to when they die? or do they have to something to go there?

admin answers:

The Inuit believed that all things had a form of spirit or soul (in Inuktitut: anirniq – breath; plural anirniit), just like humans. These spirits were held to persist after death – a common belief present in practically all human societies. However, the belief in the pervasiveness of spirits – the root of Inuit myth structure – has consequences. According to a customary Inuit saying “The great peril of our existence lies in the fact that our diet consists entirely of souls.” By believing that all things – including animals – have souls like those of humans, killing an animal is little different from killing a person. Once the anirniq of the dead – animal or human – is liberated, it is free to take revenge. The spirit of the dead can only be placated by obedience to custom, avoiding taboos, and performing the right rituals.

The harshness and randomness of life in the Arctic ensured that Inuit lived constantly in fear of unseen forces. A run of bad luck could end an entire community, and begging potentially angry and vengeful but unseen powers for the necessities of day-to-day survival is a common consequence of a precarious existence even in modern society. For the Inuit, to offend an anirniq was to risk extinction. The principal role of the angakkuq in Inuit society was to advise and remind people of the rituals and taboos they needed to obey to placate the spirits, since he was held to be able to see and contact them.

The anirniit were seen to be a part of the sila – the sky or air around them – and were merely borrowed from it. Although each person’s anirniq was individual, shaped by the life and body it inhabited, at the same time it was part of a larger whole. This enabled Inuit to borrow the powers or characteristics of an anirniq by taking its name. Furthermore, the spirits of a single class of thing – be it sea mammals, Polar Bears, or plants – were in some sense held to be the same, and could be invoked through a sort of keeper or master who was connected in some fashion with that class of thing. In some cases, it is the anirniq of a human or animal who became a figure of respect or influence over animals things through some action, recounted in a traditional tale. In other cases, it is a tuurngaq, as described below.

Since the arrival of Christianity among the Inuit, anirniq has become the accepted word for a soul in the Christian sense. This is the root word for a number of other Christian terms: anirnisiaq means angel and God is rendered as anirnialuk – the great spirit.

“Humans were a complex of three main parts : two souls (iñuusiq and iḷitqusiq : perhaps “life force” and “personal spirit”) and a name soul (atiq). After death, the iñuusiq departed for the east, but the other soul components could be reborn.”[3]
