the following is from Bipolar Lives

 

There is one study involving humans. This found some effectiveness in the treatment of alcoholism. However, it did not examine effectiveness for bipolar disorder or treating symptoms of depression or anxiety.

There are three other fascinating and very promising studies, but these were based on rats.

One rat study found no difference between LiOr and conventional lithium carbonate.

However, another rat study found greater uptake of LiOr compared to conventional lithium carbonate. This provided evidence that LiOr could be a very effective medication and why the low doses available in the LiOr products for sale on the Internet and in health food stores may be of benefit.

The final rat study found very adverse impact on kidneys compared to conventional lithium carbonate. This led the researchers to conclude: It seems inadvisable to use lithium orotate for the treatment of patients.

This is the study that has done most to damage the reputation of lithium orotate. But critics of this study point out that the amount of LiOr injected into the rats was relatively huge – the whole point being that only small doses are required to get the same benefits as with lithium carbonate, so there is no need to test using the same (large) amounts!

Lithium orotate and anxiety disorder

Along with being bipolar (symptoms of depression AND mania), I suffer from crippling panic attacks.

Reminder

I would love to hear that LiOr really does work, especially where anxiety is concerned.

This panic has been a long standing problem for me – it feels like I am choking and often makes it impossible for me to eat because I become convinced that I cannot swallow.

ANYTHING that claims to help with anxiety gets my attention!

The reason I educated myself on this topic was because of the claims being made about the various products using this “natural” alternative and anxiety disorder.

Is Dr Phelps correct that LiOr could be worth trying? My dilemma is that I already take lithium carbonate and I don’t know how to take both without messing up my doses and lithium levels. It will be hard to find a doctor to supervise your experimenting with LiOr or help you safely integrate with existing meds.

If you do try LiOR, DO NOT EXCEED the recommended dose!

Articles in support of LiOr

I recently found 3 articles that express positive views, although I present them with a caution. Although all 3 of these articles have been at least co-authored by medical doctors, there does appear to be a financial incentive involved in promoting LiOr. So with that in mind . . .

The Misunderstood Mineral Part 1 by Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. (Reprinted From Nutrition and Healing).

The Misunderstood Mineral Part 2 by Jonathan V. Wright, M.D. (Reprinted From Nutrition and Healing).

Lithium Orotate: The Unique Safe Mineral with Multiple Uses by Ward Dean, M.D. and Jim English.

Bottom line

??????????????????????????????????????

Taking Lithium orotate in the recommended doses appears to be safe and side effect free. Some respected experts like Dr Phelps are cautiously supportive. Just make sure you stick with a well known and reputable
brand. These products are not FDA regulated so you may not be getting a product that is pure or contains the stated amounts.

Since 2009 I have received over 90 comments from readers on their experiences with LiOr. These were 80% positive.

Many claim this form of natural lithium has greatly helped them with symptoms of depression, mania, anxiety, and panic attacks. BUT I DO NOT TAKE LITHIUM OROTATE! I want to take it and have (briefly) tried it with seemingly positive results. However, I simply cannot get past the lack of support and supervision from the medical profession. Please – proceed with caution.

The following is from cheeseslave.com about health and many topics to help you

Many people think they can avoid fluoride by just using fluoride-free toothpaste. However, fluoride isn’t just in toothpaste. Almost all of the beverages sold in stores and restaurants are made with tap water. People who drink those beverages ingest a fair amount of added fluoride.

We consume fluoride and are exposed to fluoride dangers from the following sources:

Toothpaste with fluoride
Baby formula
Foods cooked in fluoride
Canned soup, or soup in restaurants
Mechanically deboned chicken (i.e. chicken nuggets)
Food cooked in Teflon cookware
Soda pop and soft drinks
Fruit juice (unless it is fresh-squeezed at home)
Beer and wine (unless they are imported from Europe or other areas that don’t fluoridate the water)
Coffee (if made with fluoridated water)
Tea (all tea is naturally high in fluoride, even organic tea)
Kombucha (kombucha is made from tea)
Packaged and processed foods
Anesthetics
Fluoridated salt
Cigarettes

FLUORIDE DANGERS #1. ACCUMULATION OF FLUORIDE IN THE BODY

Fluoride accumulates in the body. Healthy adult kidneys excrete 50 to 60% of the fluoride ingested each day (Marier & Rose 1971). Any remaining fluoride accumulates in the body, typically in the bones and pineal gland (Luke 1997, 2001). Babies and children excrete less fluoride from their kidneys and absorb up to 80% of ingested fluoride into their bones (Ekstrand 1994). The concentration of fluoride in the bones increases over a lifetime (NRC 2006).

FLUORIDE DANGERS #2. FLUORIDE AND BOTTLE-FED BABIES

Bottle-fed babies receive the highest doses of fluoride. Since they have a liquid diet, formula-fed babies have the highest exposure to fluoride. Infant exposure to fluoridated water has been repeatedly found to be a major risk factor for developing dental fluorosis later in life (Marshall 2004; Hong 2006; Levy 2010). As a result, dental researchers have recommended that parents of newborns not use fluoridated water when reconstituting formula (Ekstrand 1996; Pendrys 1998; Fomon 2000; Brothwell 2003; Marshall 2004).

The American Dental Association (ADA), the biggest advocates of fluoridation, sent a November 6, 2006 email alert to its members advising that parents should make baby formula with “low or no-fluoride water.”

We will continue to visit about fluoride in the water.

 

Does YOUR city put poison fluoride in the water.  Get them to take it out.

Our spirit seems to be pretty fragile at different times in our life.  It may be

when we are going through grief, loss of a loved one, a divorce, many

reasons that our Spirit can not be what we would like.

 

Our spirit holds each of us together – because our spirit is so connected to

our bodies and mental state it should be at a high level at all times.  But, if

your spirit is like mine it is not.

 

Being productive, staying positive, being kind and compassionate of others,

having joy, being thankful and grateful everyday is what makes our lives

meaningful like Dr. Viktor Frankl has said many years ago.  That is his

theory on life, there are many other theories to follow – Freud and being

sexually happy, Adler – control and power thing.

Each of us has to decide how to spiritually be during our adult years.

Caring for our self and others and doing unto others as you want them to

do unto you.

It is simple

it is easy

It has a conscious

it is forgiving

it is loving

it is joy

it is happy

it is the thought we each think

The book ‘Prisoner of Your Thoughts is a follow up of the great book by Viktor Frankl “Search

for a Meaningful Life”. but Dr. Alex Pattakos’s books is about the work environment and

following up on Dr. Frankl’s book.  What a wonderful combination to keep Dr. Frankl’s book

alive in today’s work environment.

It is very important, on a daily basis, that we remember we each want to have a meaningful

life, whether it is in our home, with family and friends, or in the work place.

After you have read “The Road Less Traveled” and find out life is not easy but we can have a

good attitude, we can make each day count, and we shall make the effort today for the good

days tomorrow.

She waited for things to happen in her life

She waited for someone to help her make it happen

She waited and waited.  No one came to rescue her.

She would have had to walk through the door by herself and take the opportunities as they presented themselves.

Can you walk through the door

Have you already walked through the door

Are you making things happen in your life-so that your life has meaning?

It may not be today, may not be tomorrow but make this time worth while.

In today’s environment, whether it is air, water, soil or food there is a

percentage – probably about 80% that is now toxic to humans and animals

that are on this planet.  YOUR body needs to have those toxins pulled out of

your body – because if left in the body there is accumulation of all those

toxins.

 

it could be depleted uranium from all the wars around the world and the

winds that blow through to pick them up.  It could the weaponizing of foods

that have all kinds of preservatives in or the air that is polluted with many

kinds of toxins that have been weaponized.

I have taken organic calcium bentonite clay for about 15 years – I have used

it in my bath but mostly I drink small amounts every so often.  There are

directions for making this drink and you can keep it in a mason jar and

drink small amount every week or so.  Get the book and read the directions

on how to make the drink and it has a lot of other remedies in the book

also.  It is call:  “Living Clay”. by Perry A.  Full of information for a healthy

future for you and your family.

Each of us are Unique

Each of us approach life uniquely

Each of us have our own unique goals for our lives

Each of us have a unique spirituality for our life

One of my favorite and most unusual person whose life and spirituality was one of the

most prolific mathematicians of the 20th century.  Paul Erdos who was a Hungarian

mathematician.  there is so much to write about Mr. Erdos that I will try to contain

myself with just a touch of how much the book “Mr Brain is Open”

by Bruce Schechter – the mathematical journeys of Paul Erdos.

 

Mr. Erdos – possessions meant little too Erdos, most of his belongings would fit in a

suitcase, as dictated by his iterate lifestyle.e. Awards and other earnings were

generally donated to people in need and various worth causes.  he spent most of his

life traveling between scientific conferences, university and stipends from universities

as a guest lecturer, and from various mathematical awards to fund his travels and

basic needs;  money left over he used to fund cash prizes for proofs of “Erdos

problems”. he would typically show up any a colleague’s doorstep and announce “my

brain is open”, staying long enough to collaborate on a few papers before moving on a

few days later.

His parents were both Jewish mathematics teachers and he never married.  at the age

of 21 he was awarded a doctorate in mathematics from the University of Budapest.

 

This man’s spirituality was caught up in the times-his father and all his family but his

mother died in the holocaust.  he was living in America dn working at the Princeton

Institute for Advanced Study at that time.

 

He was fine with his spirituality – whatever that was for him:

owned nothing

had no family

The Man who loved only Numbers

N is for Number;  A Portrait of Paul Erdos

Read about Mr Erdos-he was content with who he was and he had joy in what he did from mathematics

I read the Celestine Prophecy in the 1990s – and I came to believe, even though it was a fiction it had so much spirituality in it that touched me and when the energy between the two people I realized at that moment we were all one because we are all energy and all connected.  I read and re-read the book over the years-loaned it to people, got a new one and loaned it to other people.  But today, we will talk about the nine insights of the book.  Of course, they will not touch everyone like it did me and maybe the book touched everyone who read it in a different way.  But, here we go on the 9 insights:

 

  1.  Meaningful coincidences.  increased number of meaningful coincidences people are noticing in their lives.

2.  Historical Perspective.  answers we want are now appearing–not necessarily from institutional science, but from a variety of sources

 

3.  Subtle energy.  there is an energy that forms the basis of all things.

 

4.  Competition for energy.  protecting ourselves from others’ attempts to draw energy from us.  Energy vampires?  I know a few.

 

5.  Energy abundance.  Being in a loving state not only connects our energy to the object of our love, but to a greater source of energy as well.

 

6.  Getting clear.  In order to be in a state of love with the world on a regular basis, we have to let go of patterns of behavior we developed to take energy from others.

 

7.  Using intuition.  when we are in touch with the energy, clear of our control dramas and aware of questions relevant to this moment, our intuition supplies the answers we need.

 

8.  Relating to others: I live the main one for me is that everyone who crosses our path has a message for us.  We should give them energy and help them get clear so that they can accurately deliver the message.

 

9,  Conscious evolution.  This is almost too much for me.

But, it is:  the goal of this evolution is to achieve a level of vibration that makes us invisible to others, perhaps even immaterial.  Jesus was the first to do this, and sporadic individuals continue to do so.  The ultimate goal is for large groups to “cross over” together in a “general Rapture”.

It was amazing what this fiction book spoke to me about on different levels.  I am just grateful I found it back when and how it has added to my life.
