Dopamine, known as the “feel-good” chemical, is released by the brain into the system by certain triggers. It makes us feel good, gives us that kick of pleasure, a high. There are “natural highs” that can cause dopamine to be released, and there are also other substances – nicotine and alcohol, to name two of the most common. They both create a feeling of “all is well” – and then there is the let-down. In both cases, over time, you need more and more in order to reach that “feel good” point. They are both addictive. Dopamine is also released by prolonged exposure to social media – or, as I prefer to call it, anti-social media. The “hit” that comes from those likes to a selfie we have posted, or a comment we have made; the approval of our peers – these too have been proven to be just as addictive as nicotine and alcohol, and just as damaging to our health and wellbeing. It is not uncommon for the habits of smoking and drinking to start in those formative teenage years, when youngsters no longer look to their parents for approval (“likes”) but to their peers. Adolescence, that time...

Alan Cooke looks at the evidence Before anybody jumps to a conclusion that the above statement is illogical, let’s explore some of the possible connections. Whilst I am not advocating that this is the only cause, I can certainly make a case for it being a contributory factor in some instances. Alzheimer’s has historically been a disease attributed to old people but over the last 15-20 years there has been a substantial decrease in the average age of the onset which requires an explanation. It corresponds to the times where we have all increased our exposure to EMFs. It does not mean that this is causing it, but studies from some epidemiological research citing extremely low frequency exposures show a collaboration in the same area as microwaves. There is evidence that electricians and other people who have high exposures to ELFs have higher incidences of Alzheimer’s. There is literature showing that all of the neuro degenerative diseases have a role to play from being triggered by EMFs and there are plausible mechanisms by which this can occur. Two crucial studies published in China found that if you gave young rats a whole series of short EMF pulses for a certain...

The EM-Radiation Research Trust, who organised the highly-successful Radiation Health conference in London at the end of September, has sent an open letter to the UK Government putting it on notice and holding it to account over the roll-out of 5G amid serious world-wide concerns about the health risks. Read the letter here – I would say it’s blasting with both barrels: well done, EM-Radiation Research Trust! EM Radiation Research Trust puts UK government on notice regarding 5G amidst profound world-wide health concerns
In my professional career as a hypnotherapist and past life regression therapist, I must have worked with more than a thousand clients, and in my experience, it is not unusual to trace the real, underlying root cause of a “this life” issue back to a past life. Typically this would be an irrational fear or phobia, but could also be problems and challenges with relationships, money, career, sex drive, addictive behaviours … by resolving the issue back there at source, it frees the client to move forward in this lifetime. That whole premise of past lives goes hand in hand with a belief in reincarnation, which I have studied and researched over the years and for me, there is no doubt that it is true. What makes it harder to refute nowadays for the skeptics is the fact that people are coming back and remembering a recent past life where all of the details can be verified in official records. On Tuesday 8th October 2019 I shall be giving a talk about all of this, including: ** the concept of reincarnation has been and is viewed across history and across cultures. ** modern case studies where previous lives have been...
There is a lot of debate about protecting yourself and your home from WiFi radiation, or EMFs, or microwave radiation, or 5G. Some will say that nothing works, the only remedy is avoidance – and that is getting increasingly difficult, of course, as the networks multiply and cover even more of the countryside. Others swear by crystals (especially Shungite); or by gadgets and gizmos that claim to “harmonise” or “neutralise” the damaging radiation waves. Talking to those who are seriously affected by this radiation, it becomes clear that, as with so much, there is not a “one size fits all” solution. There is protective clothing, and grounding sheets, and paint that apparently reflects the harmful radiation. I have seen Electrosensitive people coming to workshops and conferences dressed almost like beekeepers, clad head to toe in protective clothing such is their level of sensitivity. This report gives some ideas and suggestions – what I would say is, do your own research, do your own homework, understand that what works for your friend, or the guy who is selling you whatever it is, may not work for you – and that is not your fault, it’s just the way it is. 7-Essential-Ways-to-Make-Your-Home-Safe-FINAL
