Pro-Rowen & Anti-Rowen are both here so if interested you can compare. Personal note: Jerry, a friend of mine, was declared “terminal” by experts, was unable to get out of a wheelchair, and was on the heaviest possible medications (methatrexate, etc.). He went to Rowen. In about three weeks he was walking. The “terminal” disease (bone destroying) was halted, reversed, and stabilized. If this is quackery, I’m for it. -🐬ls

Jerry’s story, 2004, from Dr. Rowen’s newsletter, “Second Opinion” (now written by Dr. Robert Shallenberger)
*
Robert Jay Rowen’s “Second Opinion,” December 2004 — Jerry’s story
You Can Reverse Crippling Arthritis
If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and have been told, “There’s nothing we can do,” I have a wonderful story that should give you hope.
Jerry Anderson, a 65-year-oldSecond Opinion reader from Texas was told by his board-certified rheumatologist that he would become completely immobile and likely be dead within two years.
Jerry had developed a galloping case of inflammatory arthritis. He was given high levels of Big Pharma chemicals to suppress symptoms and had not responded. When he arrived at my office, he was an invalid in a wheelchair, unable to muster the strength to move it, or even set its brakes. His hands were swollen to twice their normal size and all of his limbs were virtually immobile. He was in agony. An unrelated condition had caused a partial paralysis in his right leg.
Jerry consulted with me by telephone only two weeks before coming. I suspected several conditions I’ve repeatedly written about in these pages. Specifically, hypercoagulation (a folic acid metabolic defect), likely infection in his joints, heavy metals, infection in his teeth or jawbones (root canals), and insufficient adrenal hormones. He decided to pay me a visit and flew out immediately with the assistance of a dear friend.
Amazingly, we quickly confirmed all of these suspicions.
Jerry received low-dose antibiotics (minocycline), hyperbaric oxygen, and oxidation treatments for infection. I placed him on the low-dose adrenal hormones of Liefmann (available from Women’s International Pharmacy). Chelation therapy, both IV and oral, was used for heavy metals. Low-dose heparin was given for the hypercoagulation. Folapro was provided for the folic acid metabolic defect, and other nutritional supplements for naturally easing inflammation.
Within one week, the pain and swelling in his hands was sharply reduced and his energy level was dramatically higher. By the end of his third week with us, I was shocked by what I saw. He was able to self-maneuver his wheelchair to his van, stand, load it up himself, and drive away. By his fourth week with us, after dental work to clean out extensive root canal and jaw infections, this previously crippled man climbed two flights of stairs (even with his partially paralyzed leg) and was walking around the office with a walker. The staff exclaimed joyously, “A miracle in action!”
Folks, you want to know the reason for our coming health care bankruptcy? It’s because Big Pharma products do nothing to treat the cause of disease and only create new problems with their toxic “side effects.” Jerry is a miracle in progress and wants you to know his story. He can’t wait to shock his rheumatologist by walking into his office.
Millions of Americans are needlessly suffering from painful and crippling inflammatory and so-called “autoimmune” conditions. Drugs can be part of the solution, but only if directed at the cause.

Immune Responses Accelerate Ageing: Proof-of-Principle in an Insect Model ••• (article in PLoS ONE)
>
Abstract of article
*
The pathology of many of the world's most important infectious diseases is caused by the immune response. Additionally age-related disease is often attributed to inflammatory responses. Consequently a reduction in infections and hence inflammation early in life has been hypothesized to explain the rise in lifespan in industrialized societies. Here we demonstrate experimentally for the first time that eliciting an immune response early in life accelerates ageing. We use the beetle Tenebrio molitor as an inflammation model. We provide a proof of principle for the effects of early infection on morbidity late in life and demonstrate a long-lasting cost of immunopathology. Along with presenting a proof-of-principle study, we discuss a mechanism for the apparently counter-adaptive persistence of immunopathology in natural populations. If immunopathology from early immune response only becomes costly later in life, natural selection on reducing self-harm would be relaxed, which could explain the presence of immune self-harm in nature.

Vagus nerve: communication between gut and brain
*
You may not be aware that you actually have two nervous systems:
• Central nervous system, composed of your brain and spinal cord
• Enteric nervous system, which is the intrinsic nervous system of your gastrointestinal tract
Both are created from identical tissue during fetal development—one part turns into your central nervous system while the other develops into your enteric nervous system. These two systems are connected via the vagus nerve, the tenth cranial nerve that runs from your brain stem down to your abdomen. It is now well established that the vagus nerve is the primary route your gut bacteria use to transmit information to your brain.

Regarding coronary-vascular disease: “The problem, he says, is not LDL, the ”bad cholesterol“ widely considered to be the major cause of heart disease. What matters is whether the cholesterol and fat residing in those LDL particles have been oxidized.”
*
“Despite major public health efforts, coronary heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States. Oxidized lipids contribute to heart disease both by increasing deposition of calcium on the arterial wall, a major hallmark of atherosclerosis, and by interrupting blood flow, a major contributor to heart attack and sudden death. Oxidized cholesterol (oxysterols) enhances the production of sphingomyelin, a phospholipid found in the cellular membranes of the coronary artery. This increases the sphingomyelin content in the cell membrane, which in turn enhances the interaction between the membrane and ionic calcium (Ca2+), thereby increasing the risk of arterial calcification.” - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3584645/ - Am J Cardiovasc Dis. 2013; 3(1): 17–26.

V
Dr. Joe Mercola summarized his article on the event as follows:
*
On February 15, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. held a press conference on vaccine safety. He challenged journalists, offering $100,000 to anyone who can find a published study proving mercury levels in vaccines are harmless for infants and developing fetuses at the levels given.
While the mercury preservative, thimerosal, may be a concern, it’s not the only one.There are many other potentially severe side effects of vaccination, including brain inflammation, immune system dysfunction and allergies.
Other potential mechanisms of vaccine-induced harm include giving children 50 doses of 14 vaccines before age six; aluminum adjuvants and other toxic ingredients, the hazards of immune system overstimulation and more.

“The central core of collectivist ideology is best stated by Eric Vxoeglin in his scholarly book,
“‘From Enlightenment to Revolution, when he states: In its outline we see the idea of mankind dominated by a chosen people which embodies the progressive essence of humanity. In historical actuality that would mean a totalitarian organization of mankind in which the dominating power would beat down in the name of mankind and freedom everybody who does not conform to the standards.’”

Assisted suicide: Once the government gets out of health care this issue goes away. It’s now a matter for discussion and decision among individuals, their family and friends, medical and religious people, and other trusted advisors. Laws against murder will remain applicable.

An excellent talk ••• (YouTube) by Dr. Jill Vecchio on freedom vs. political control of health issues, probably given in 2016 at Colorado Christian University •••. Dr. Vecchio was the author of a webpage published in opposition to a proposal to create ColoradoCare, a sovereign bureacracy with the power to tax and make all health decisions for all Colorado residents. By freeorder standards, this is one of the most destructive laws ever proposed. It was defeated (in referendum) but we can be sure it will be back, and that similar proposals will be made in other states.

The Stevia Shibboleth (addressed to the FDA regulators) ••• (full article; excerpts from the end of the article below)
 
*
One has to wonder why aspartame, sucralose, and high fructose corn syrup -- all with proven major negative health effects -- are approved by regulatory agencies in the US, Canada, and Europe and are currently in widespread use; whereas stevia is not. Not to be cynical, but perhaps the companies behind aspartame, sucralose, and high fructose corn syrup (G.D. Searle, Royal DSM, Tate and Lyle, and ADM) have a political clout that small independent stevia producers cannot muster for a non-patentable natural sweetener.
 
*
If that's true, we can be fairly sure that we will never see stevia approved for commercial use in Europe, Canada, and the US until one of those large corporate entities finds a way to patent it. But wait! Forgive my cynicism! Cargill and Coca Cola are doing just that even as we speak! I think we can look forward to an approval of stevia -- in a patented form -- in the not too distant future. Will this version be safer? No, of course not. It will merely have a different name, Rebiana. Oh yes, and Coke and Cargill will back it. In the world of nutrition regulation, it appears that money talks... and real nutrition walks. It's enough to give you high blood sugar, tiny thymuses, brain tumors, and shrunken sex glands!
 
*
I titled this newsletter the Stevia Shibboleth. A shibboleth, as described in the Bible, was a secret word used by the ancient Gileadites to identify outsiders who were unable to pronounce the word correctly. In a sense, we can see that stevia is being used as a shibboleth by regulatory agencies to separate the insiders (the large commercial entities with major political influence) from the outsiders (the purveyors of all-natural healthy products). And just as the Gileadites put outsiders who failed the test to death, so it would seem our regulators would do the same to manufacturers such as Celestial Seasonings who fail the modern Shibboleth test and pronounce their sweetener: stevia.
 
*
As I said, this newsletter has been written for those regulators.
*
Guys, as long as you approve aspartame, sucralose, and high fructose corn syrup as healthy and refuse to allow stevia to be used, calling it unsafe, despite all reasonable evidence to the contrary, you will have no credibility among thinking people. It is tantamount to an open admission that approval has nothing to do with safety -- only what's bought and paid for.

From Barron's May 09 letter, “Swine Flu - Reluctantly“ http://www.jonbarron.org/baseline-health-program/2009-05-11.php 'The bottom line is that the biggest damage from the swine flu outbreak may yet turn out to be that it is being used as an excuse by the FDA and FTC (and ultimately government agencies throughout the world) to come down on complementary health like a sledge hammer leaving pharmaceutical drugs as their only option. Incidentally, no legislation is required to do this. It can all be done by agency fiat. As I have repeatedly tried to remind people, the real danger to alternative health is not from “big legislation” but from behind the scenes directives that require no public oversight or legislative approval.'

It seems that Wakefield received undisclosed payments for producing the research that cast doubt on the safety of the MMR vaccine.

'In 1956, an American Heart Association (AHA) fund-raiser aired on all three major networks. The MC interviewed, among others, Irving Page and Jeremiah Stamler of the AHA, and researcher Ancel Keys. Panelists presented the lipid hypothesis as the cause of the heart disease epidemic and launched the Prudent Diet, one in which corn oil, margarine, chicken and cold cereal replaced butter, lard, beef and eggs. But the television campaign was not an unqualified success because one of the panelists, Dr. Dudley White, disputed his colleagues at the AHA. Dr. White noted that heart disease in the form of myocardial infarction was nonexistent in 1900 when egg consumption was three times what it was in 1956 and when corn oil was unavailable. When pressed to support the Prudent Diet, Dr. White replied: “See here, I began my practice as a cardiologist in 1921 and I never saw an MI patent until 1928. Back in the MI free days before 1920, the fats were butter and lard and I think that we would all benefit from the kind of diet that we had at a time when no one had ever heard the word corn oil.”' —Mary Enig's “Oiling of America“

🔹 Wisdom of Age, ••• by Jeff Rubin
*
Have you ever heard any of these comments?
• "Children should be seen and not heard."
• "Grandma's having a senior moment."
• "She looks good for her age."
Commonly quoted phrases many of us have heard throughout our lives  reflect a bias called ageism which is so ingrained into our society that we don’t even realize how much ageism stereotyping and discrimination impacts our lives.
That's why I wrote Wisdom of Age which grows out of personal observations and professional concerns I’ve raised for many years regarding a cultural bias towards ageism at home and abroad, and society’s apparent ignorance of, or unwillingness to consider the consequences of ageism.

In 2004, Jeff accepted a Cobden-Bright Award from Explorers Foundation, given for his deeply thoughtful work on aging, expressed in this letter: “The Alliance for Holistic Aging: An Open Letter of Intention and Progress: One Year Hence” •••
