Elder's Meditation of the Day - October 31

 Osiyo - Elder's Meditation of the Day - October 31 "One is not born a Tewa but rather one is made a Tewa... once made, one has to work hard continuously throughout one's life to remain a Tewa." --Alfonso Ortiz, SAN JUAN PUEBLO Being Indian is being spiritual. It is not the color of our skin. Being Indian is how we think. We need to learn our culture, our language, our dances, our traditions and customs. It is one thing to know these things, but another to live them. We need to spend time with the Elders and get their guidance. We need to go to the mountains, woods and desert to pray. Being spiritual is the way for us to think right. Walking the Red Road and thinking right is the greatest gift we can give to our children. Dohiyi, Nvwadohiyada,

Communities unite to reclaim the Highway of Tears

Communities unite to reclaim the Highway of Tears  Email this page     Print this page Posted: October 21, 2005 by: Stephanie Woodard Click to Enlarge Photos courtesy Dennis and Shelby Raymond -- Pipers led a group of marchers in Terrace, British Columbia during the recent Take Back the Highway event condemning the deaths or disappearances of 32 women and girls - most of them Native - during the 1990s. (Inset) Event Regional Coordinator Kathy Wesley, Nisga'a Nation, with participant Blaine Stensgaard. TERRACE, British Columbia - A killing ground became sacred space, as communities along Highway 16 gathered recently to celebrate the lives and deplore the deaths or disappearances of 32 women and girls - 31 of them Native - during the 1990s.

These largely uninvestigated, unsolved crimes took place on a 500-mile stretch of the road that threads its way through the lush rainforest and glorious mountains of western Canada. The route eventually became known as the Highway of Tears - more a place of horror than one of beauty.

Kathy Wesley, Nisga'a Nation, a counselor at Ksan House, a social-services organization and women's shelter in Terrace, coordinated the event. Called ''Take Back the Highway,'' the idea was inspired by Take Back the Night, an international demonstration against sexism and violence that takes place each September.

In each of many towns along the route, hundreds of men, women and children - Native and non-Native - prayed, sang, danced and marched. ''A butterfly suggestion became a tidal wave,'' said Grainne Barthe, of Hope Haven Transition House, a women's shelter in Prince Rupert. The First Nations and Bands represented included Tsimshian, Kitsumkalum, Stellat'en, Cheslatta, Hagwilget, Nak'azdli, Tsay Keh Dene, Lake Babine, Sai'Kuz and Nad'leh.

Beverley Jacobs, Mohawk, president of the Native Women's Association of Canada, appeared on behalf of her organization, which has worked hard over the past few years to bring attention to the issue of rampant violence and discrimination against indigenous women in Canada. ''I am honored to know such powerful and strong people,'' Jacobs said of the marchers.

''I saw the sister and niece of Ramona Wilson [who went missing at age 15] holding tightly onto each other,'' said Shelby Raymond, spokesman for Terrace Amnesty International Action Circle, one of many national and local organizations that participated in the event. ''I realized this was a deeply needed statement, a moment to control one small section of highway, a moment to say we will remember every precious young woman who disappeared. A community was born on our march.''

In Hazelton, there was not a dry eye as family members remembered their missing sisters, daughters and mothers, reported Jim McAfee, an alcohol and drug counselor with the Hagwilget Village Health Team. ''Lucy Glaim spoke on behalf of the family of Delphine Nikal [who also disappeared while in her mid-teens]. The theme was reiterated that the families are still grieving and that it is healing to have the support of an event such as this,'' said McAfee. ''The deaths and disappearances affect us all in so many ways.''

Those who had experienced repression, sexism and violence spoke of feeling empowered. Participant Sherrice Lucier recalled her impressions of the day: ''Walking along that path was so symbolic for me. I was taking it back. Words cannot explain what I felt [while] walking with all you courageous women. So I will simply say, 'Thank you.'''

Good News About "Pandemic" Flu!

 Good News About "Pandemic" Flu!
How to Protect Yourself and Your Family
Flu Fear Fighters

Worried about Avian Flu? Don't be. As a physician and a scientist, I
want to share the best news of this flu season: You can prevent or
treat the Avian Flu (IF it develops the ability to infect humans)
easily, simply, cheaply, safely and naturally. And I know that there
are things you can do to make the problem much, much worse. The
choices are yours. Please share what you are about to read with
everyone you know. This information could save huge numbers of lives.

Please remember, though, that this information is not a diagnosis or
a treatment plan. It is educational material intended to help you
develop your own personalized disease prevention or treatment
strategy. You might want to consult a nutritional professional or
natural physician to help you personalize it for you and your family.

How does the Avian Flu do its damage? Birds (or humans if the virus
mutates spontaneously - or is mutated in a lab) die because the H5N1
virus depletes Vitamin C stores so quickly that the cause of death is
fulminate scurvy. Scurvy is the same disease that killed seamen on
long voyages because, unless we get enough Vitamin C from our diet or
our supplements, we get sick or die. Humans cannot make Vitamin C but
we need it for a great many vital processes including immune function
and vascular integrity. This particular type of virus uses up Vitamin
C stores so quickly that the immune system is overwhelmed and the
blood vessels loose their structural integrity: they leak so badly
that infected animals literally bleed to death through those damaged

Prevention? Vitamin C: lots and lots and lots of Vitamin C.
Treatment? Lots and lots and lots of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is not toxic. Under stress (like a viral infection), your
need for Vitamin C is increased. When your body has had enough, your
body will tell you by soft stools or diarrhea. This is not a sign of
toxicity: it is a sign that you have reached "Bowel Tolerance" (BT).
Once you get there (and it can be at 1 gram or 20 grams: your body
will tell you), cut back to 75% of the dose that represents BT for
you and keep taking that dose EVERY DAY.

Write down each of the 4 daily doses of Vitamin C that you take each
day because you will be increasing your intake gradually until you
find the amount that you need for immune support. This dosage
information is important enough that it could literally save your
life so it is worth taking the time to record this information
carefully and stick to the dosing schedule precisely. If you mess up,
don't quit, but do make your best effort to stick to it.

You will start with 1 gram per dose so, for example, on Day 1,
suppose that you take 1000 mg (= 1 gram) of Vitamin C every 4 hours
for a total of 4 grams. On Day 2, increase the first dose to 2 grams
and then take 1 gram for your other 3 doses. (You will take 4 doses
per day). On day 3, take 2 grams for your first and second doses and
1 gram for the remaining two doses. On Day 3, you would take 2 grams
for the first three doses and 1 gram for the next dose. You would
continue increasing your dosage in that way until your body lets you
know via your GI tract that you've reach the level you need. Now
multiply that total daily dose by 0.75 and you've got your daily dose.

For example, suppose you reach Bowel Tolerance at 10 doses. Multiply
by 0.75 and you now know that you need 7.5 grams of Vitamin C a day
for immune system support. You would do well to take reasonable doses
of Vitamins E and A along with Zinc and reduced L-Glutathione since
they work together with Vitamin C. How much? That depends upon your
weight, health, etc. I would also recommend that you take a good
Multivitamin along with the preventive levels of Vitamin C described
above. The Multivitamins I recommend have so much in them that a full
adult dose requires 6 capsules or tablets to get all the nutrients
in. A single multivitamin cap is just not potent enough to provide
serious immune support, no matter what the company tells you.

And I hope it goes without saying that the more processed foods you
eat, the more chemicals, flavors, preservatives, pesticides, sugar
and artificial sweeteners, in short, the more junk you put into your
body, the more acidic your body will be and the less resistant to
viral infection it will be. So, now would be a great time to switch
over to a diet rich in fruits, dark and brightly colored veggies,
free range animal protein and organic everything. Those are food
choices that build your immune capacity, not bang it around.

Selenium blocks deadly mutations in the Avian Flu virus (J American
College Nutrition 20: 384–88S, 2001; FASEB Journal 15: 1846–48, 2001;
Journal Nutrition 133: 1463–67S, 2003) while elderberry syrup has
been shown to be an effective flu remedy (J International Med
Research 32:132–40, 2004; Israeli Medical Assoc Journal 4:919–22,
2002; European Cytokine Network 12:290–6, 2001; J Alternative
Complement Medicine 1:361–9, 1995). Garlic is a highly effective anti
viral substance which should be part of your diet (Planta Medica
58:417–23, 1992).

Children's doses should be titrated the same way taking the weight of
the child into account.

That part is important: this part is even more important: at the very
first indication of anything that might be viral disease, increase
your Vitamin C immediately. DO NOT WAIT TO SEE IF THINGS GET WORSE!
might be very, very high. Vitamin C is not toxic. Unlike drugs, which
poison enzymes and are thus capable of severe toxicity to the body,
nutrients , especially water soluble ones like Vitamin C, have no
meaningful level of toxicity. Your body knows what you need. Pay
close attention to it.

In the event that you think you may have the flu, take the amino
acids l-lysine, l-proline and l-glycine. An average size adult can
take up to 3 grams of each one 4 times a day since they help prevent
the spread of the virus in your body.

My personal regimen for immune health includes high dose Vitamin C
and Vitamins A and E along with zinc and L-Glutathione:

I travel with Olive Leaf Extract, Oil of Oregano (not to be taken by
pregnant women since it can cause abortions), goldenseal, Echinacea,
curcumin (from turmeric), probiotics, B complex, fish oil and alpha
lipoic acid. I drink organic green tea and I do not eat any sugar

If you do become ill, the best thing you can do is contact a
physician who practices natural and nutritional medicine and begin a
regimen of  Intravenous Vitamin C treatments (you may need between
100 and 200 grams (not milligrams) for a short time since the Avian
Flu is so good at using up your urgently needed Vitamin C.

Here's what NOT to do:

Do not take Tamiflu (oseltamivir). The widely touted antiviral drug
(like its cousin Relenza or zanamivir) produced drug resistant
viruses in 18% of children treated with the drug and a drug resistant
strainhas been found in a Vietnamese girl treated with the drug. A
drug resistant strain would be a far more dangerous virus than one
which had not learned how to evade the drug's effect. Viruses can not
become resistant to Vitamin C.

Do not take FluMist

FluMist is a live virus vaccine which introduces between 10 and 100
million viruses into the nose. Those viruses are not the same as the
Avian Flu and therefore do not confer immunity against it since only
the identical virus could do that. FluMist is based on last year's
viruses which were not effective against last year's viruses. They
are certainly not effective against the Avian Flu virus which has not
yet become infective to humans, so no vaccine exists against it in
its infective form.

However, once treated with FluMist, people shed live, infective
viruses for up to 3 weeks which can give people flu.  In fact, immuno-
compromised people, nursing babies, people with eczema, HIV, taking
steroids, chemotherapy, radiation treatment (or the 60% of the
American population which is chemically immuno-suppressed) are at
significant danger if they come into contact with anyone who has been
inoculated with FluMist.

FluMist is delivered into the nostrils by a forceful squirt. This
puts infective viruses very close to the brain where they can pass
through the thin cribiform plate at the top of the nostrils and enter
the brain. It is not known if such treatment causes encephalitis.
Only time will tell but the risk is a serious one considering the
morbidity (sickness) and mortality (death) caused by encephalitis.

Each of the three viruses in FluMist can mutate and can cause
mutations in the Avian Flu. Those mutations can supply the Avian Flu
virus as it currently exists with the genetic sequences it needs to
become a pandemic virus. The FluMist live virus nasal inoculation can
assist the much feared Avian Flu virus to transform into the very
pandemic we are being told to fear.

Flu Vaccines for a pandemic version of the Avian Flu do not exist.
The only way to make a vaccine against a particular virus is to have
the virus available and then make a toxic brew filled with poisons
(mercury, aluminum, squalene), foreign particles (egg, chick, and
other proteins) and contaminants (stealth viruses, etc.) That flu
virus does not yet exist, we are told. Assuming that it is not
already manufactured and waiting for release in a lab somewhere, it
would be 6 months before an Avian Flu vaccine could be ready.
Vaccination with anything else would not help a bit with the Avian
Flu strain which we are supposedly facing disaster from.

But, assuming that we already had a vaccine for the right flu strain,
and assuming that vaccines were safe enough to use (which I do not
believe they are, since vaccines are very dangerous treatments which
should be approached with the gravest reservations) the fact is that
they do not produce immunity most of the time. We have been
ballyhooed and mislead about the efficacy and safety of vaccination.

It is neither efficacious nor safe. And to ask the American people to
submit to vaccinations which are infective (because they spread live
vaccines), ineffective (because they are not vaccines against the
real danger which does not exist yet and vaccines take 6 months to
make) and dangerous (disease rises sharply with vaccination) and for
which manufacturer liability is being removed is not good medicine,
good policy or good sense.

Please safeguard your life and that of your loved ones. Pass this
information to everyone you know so that they can delve further and
make their own choices.

Petition which contains the Revised Vitamin and Mineral Guideline
