Active Title Link: Allen Darmans’ Natural Bipolar Recovery Story as of June 2004
Below is a Picture of My son Willy at about ten and a half years of age, after being on Ritalin for about four years for an ADHD diagnosis and classic bipolar symptoms. At this point in his life Willy was not very happy, and he had both Compromised Mental and Physical Health.
What My Son Willy Did Between August of 2004 and February of 2008 Exposed the Hoax of Drug Oriented Medicine, if the Truth Ever Became Known! Below is a Picture of My Son Willy taken in February 2008 when he was about seventeen and a half years old, and after he had been applying Nutritional and Natural Therapies to himself for about three and a half years. No More ADHD! No More Bipolar Disorder! and No More Weak and Sickly Childhood Health!
WHEN I WAS FIRST DIAGNOSED WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER (MANIC DEPRESSION) IN JUNE OF 1994, I WAS TOLD BY THE PSYCHIATRIST TREATING ME THAT MY BEING CURED OF THIS ILLNESS WAS IMPOSSIBLE. HE TOLD ME THAT THE BEST I COULD DO TO DEAL WITH MY ILLNESS WAS TO TAKE MEDICATION ON A DAILY BASIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
In 1994, I realized that my chances of ever becoming well (cured) from manic depression were perhaps far less than that of most persons. This realization stemmed from the facts that (1) my true bipolar onset was in 1963 as an eleven year old child (amazingly I had avoided the medical model for over three decades despite very substantial bipolar symptoms), (2) over the thirty one years prior to my initial diagnosis I had already had hundreds of episodes of either very substantial mania or severe depression, and (3) I was not responding well to lithium at all. (Lithium is a medication that seems to help many bipolar persons. It did not work well for me. Even on a low dosage of 900 mg. of lithium my hands shook uncontrollably, such that I could hardly sign my name without using my other hand to help. On 900 mg. of lithium, I also lost quite a bit of reading comprehension. In addition, I lost quite a bit of ability to remember things, and quite a bit of ability to reason and “think things out”. )
In essence, if anyone knew the truth of my circumstances in 1994, as well as knew the truth of my prior life experiences for the past three decades, I was not a person that was ever going to get better from manic depression. It was hopeless, or so even I had thought. Despite such hopelessness, I have always been a person that does not like being told that something is impossible. In July of 1994, I will always remember telling a very close bipolar friend of mine with tears in my eyes “if there is any way out of this trap [manic depression], I am going to do everything that I can to find it [for both of us] for the rest of my life”. This single statement has defined the last ten years of my life.
It is now June of 2004. For a little over four years, I have been able to completely control any manic depressive symptoms in myself, when I so choose to use my profound understanding of the true common causes this illness and/or when I have the means to afford optimal nutritional and other natural supplementation. And for a few years prior to June 2000, I was very close to knowing then what I know today.
I have not taken a single psychotropic medicine since September of 1997. Nor have I needed to take any medication since this time in order to control the symptoms of my illness. In November 1997, about five months after I had started to use psychotropic nutrients such as amino acids and use other natural measures as well, I had gained much greater control over my biochemistry and behavior than any drug that my psychiatrist had ever given me for manic depression.
What follows is the story of my recovery from an often devastating mental illness, an illness that most persons still erroneously consider incurable.
From the time I was first diagnosed with manic depression in June 1994 until I made a successful transition off of medication by using amino acids and other natural measures, I was prescribed and took the following medications for various periods of time; lithium, Depakote, Elavil, Zoloft, Serzone, Paxil, Ambien, Xanex, and Klonopin.
Neither mood stabilizer worked well for me. I took lithium in various dosages for about eight months. Lithium made me “a zombie” in 1200 mg. and 900 mg. dosages. I could not resolve hand trembling at these dosages as well. On lower dosages of 600 mg. and 300 mg. of lithium my mania recurrently, if not easily, broke through. Lithium did not seem to help my depressive states at all. My manic states rather easily blew through Depakote like it was water.
I slept sixteen hours a day on what I believe was only a 50 mg. dosage of Elavil. This medication clearly did not work out well for me. I was only prescribed Paxil and Serzone for a very short period of time (about a week) during one hospitalization that I had in July of 1996 for severe depression. Paxil and Serzone, in combination with Depakote, shut my small intestines down such that they nearly burst. I nearly died from this unusual drug combination of an SSRI antidepressant, a tricyclic antidepressant, and Depakote, all given at the same time (as it caused this intestinal shutdown, a medical condition with a name that is something like “paralytic illeus”).
Ambien helped me a little to sleep, but on even a “double dose” of this I could often only get three hours rest, which was not nearly enough sleep when I was manic… and I was manic quite a bit in the late 80′s though mid 1997. Often Sominex, an over the counter sleep remedy, would give me just as much sleep as Ambien, if not a bit more.
When I was first prescribed Xanex in December of 1995, this medication was a godsend for me. Finally I had found a chemical substance that would knock me out. Xanex was the first medication that I ever took that allowed me to get enough sleep such that my manic states did not “go over the top”. I was not taking a mood stabilizer at this time, so getting enough sleep was critical to me, and Xanex did the trick. However, within three months of my first taking Xanex, I had an adverse reaction to it (very blurred vision in one eye) on only .875 mg, a very low dose for most persons. As a result of this adverse reaction, I had to cease taking Xanex immediately. Perhaps needless to say, I had a fairly manic March of 1996 after I abruptly had to cease taking Xanex, as I could hardly sleep at all.
Of all the medications that I ever took for manic depression, two of them helped me substantially for fairly significant lengths of time. The first of these medications was Zoloft. When I first took Zoloft in the fall of 1992, this medication lifted me out of a three and a half month bout with severe depression in about two weeks. The whole world looked rosy to me when I first took Zoloft. I could not believe the change. As suicidal and as ignorant of depression as I was at the time, Zoloft may have actually saved my life. For this I am very thankful. However, towards the end of my time on medication, even twice as much Zoloft as I had always responded to did not seem to help me out of severe depression at all.
In September of 1996, I decided to begin to take a few vitamins and minerals in an attempt lift myself out of a current state of deep depression. This was the first depressive state I ever had that had not responded well to Zoloft. Within a few weeks of starting to take vitamins and minerals to help my mood state for the first time, I knew that these nutrient substances had made a huge difference. And finally, after months of feeling really blue, I was not depressed.
The second medication that I took for manic depression that helped me substantially was Klonopin. After I had an adverse reaction to Xanex in February of 1996 and had to stop taking it, I went though a fairly manic month or so. I was in real trouble at this point. I simply could not sleep well in March of 1996 without some sort of powerful chemical assistance. Whenever I could not sleep enough my manic state escalated rather quickly into severe mania. After reading a number of books and talking to a few other persons, I asked my psychiatrist for a trial of Klonopin, despite the fact that I had already had a negative reaction to another benzodiazapine medication. Reluctantly he agreed. I went on Klonopin in April of 1996. Klonopin was also a godsend for me. It bought me 18 months of being able to sleep at least enough so that I did not end up in the hospital for severe mania, and/or burn up any more serious money from being really manic. Even though I only got about four and a half to five hours or so of sleep on Klonopin, and in the end I had to have a few beers with 2 mg. of Klonopin in order to really go down at night, at least I could sleep long enough and deep enough so that in the morning when I woke up I was no longer really manic. I used to actually get up sluggish in the morning, what I called “a Klonopin hangover”, but by the end of that same day, I was often pretty zippity again… manic enough that I could not fall asleep and sleep well at all without either Klonopin or a combination of Klonopin and alcohol. I took Klonopin daily from April 1996 until September of 1997. I became clearly and knowingly addicted to Klonopin, not knowing a better answer to control my manic depressive tendencies at the time.
As result of my initial success with using some vitamins and minerals to help resolve depression in myself in September 1996, I began to experiment with other nutrients, despite the fact I was still on, and still really needed to take, Klonopin. In November of 1996, I began taking a potassium supplement. At this time, I was running on the high side (hypomanic), but I was not out of control. I was just running faster than the norm, but I was still lucid and quite functional. Either the very first day or the second day that I took potassium, I knew that just the simple mineral potassium made my manic state noticeably more elevated (worse). I immediately stopped taking potassium. My interest in nutrients grew immensely at this point. How could just a simple potassium supplement make my manic states worse? And if potassium made my manic states worse, I wondered would potassium help my depressive states? A few months later, in January of 1997, I found out. Potassium clearly made my depressed state in January of 1997 better, almost as much as Zoloft had done, but it did so much quicker. How could this be? I remember thinking at this time “how could such simple and elemental nutrients be ignored by the doctors that treat mental illness?” Perhaps needless to say, I soon began to experiment with nutrients even more.
In May of 1997, I began to take my first amino acid, the excitatory amino acid tyrosine. I took 500 mg. of tyrosine in the morning, with the odd collection of vitamins and minerals I had already determined as helpful to me over the past nine months or so. I was feeling pretty good at the time, not too manic, and not at all depressed. I did not notice the effect of tyrosine on me until the bottle ran out and I did not bother to replace it. Within a week of my not taking tyrosine, I realized that I had sunk day by day from a fairly stable and functional state to a state of serious, if not severe, depression. As I lay in my bed in early July of 1997, I wondered why? Why was I depressed? Life was clearly going very well for me at this point in my life. I had no triggers, no stressors, such that I should feel depressed unless my depressive onset was simply chemical in nature. I finally realized as I lay thinking in my bed that it was the fact that I had run out of tyrosine that I was depressed. I theorized that whatever tyrosine was making in my brain had become depleted. I also guessed, and guessed correctly, that whatever tyrosine was making in my brain was necessary for me to not feel depressed. (I later learned that tyrosine is the nutrient precursor to dopamine and norepinephrine, two key excitatory neurotransmitters. I also learned that tyrosine can either cause or contribute to a manic state, if a bipolar person takes too much tyrosine for their biochemistry at the moment. One needs to learn how to use inhibitory nutrients before taking tyrosine if they are bipolar… see below.)
As I did not have any tyrosine in the house, and it was Sunday night such that I could not just go to the health food store and just buy some more, I took some (nine grams in aggregate) of multi-amino acid tablets I had just recently ordered but had yet to take for the first time. Then I took my Klonopin, had a beer or two, and went to bed. Eight hours later, I woke up manic as hell. I could not believe what had happened to me. I had gone from a state of very serious depression to very severe mania within eight hours, simply as the result of amino acid ingestion. This was absolutely amazing to me. I repeated the same mistake a week later, with virtually the same result.
At this point in my life (July of 1997), I immediately knew the enormous social and scientific significance of what had just happened to me. I also immediately signed up to be “a guinea pig” for the rest of world in regard to what nutrients can do to correct manic depression. I was going to research and take every nutrient that I possibly could in an attempt to discover what it might teach me about correcting my condition of chemical imbalance. Soon after this, when I knew just a little bit more, I also decided to research every common impairment to essential nutrient delivery in the human species, as it was clear to me from the standpoints of both simple logic and my own self experience that these common nutrient impairment issues were often the true common causes of manic depression. In my opinion, this simple logic has been anecdotally proven to be correct, not only for myself, but also for a number of other persons that are bipolar as well.
My first discovery about how to use nutrients was that I discovered that it is “a must” from the standpoint of safety that a bipolar person learns how to use inhibitory nutrients before they start using excitatory ones, such as tyrosine or phenylalanine. Excitatory nutrients can easily cause bipolar persons to become hypomanic, manic, or severely manic within hours of their ingestion. If you are bipolar you definitely don’t want this to happen without having an answer in place beforehand. Inhibitory nutrients, such as inhibitory amino acids, can both counteract and balance excitatory ones. Inhibitory nutrients, when used properly, can resolve a manic state. Inhibitory nutrients, in combination with other natural measures, seem to take mania completely out of the equation if these nutrients are used properly on a daily basis.
In August of 1997, I began to use inhibitory nutrients, completely ceasing my use of excitatory nutrients temporarily due to my recognition of their dangers without having an antidote (knowledge of how to use inhibitory nutrients).
Within a month, by taking a combination of inhibitory nutrients I was able to get off of 18 months of daily Klonopin usage completely without any difficult withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. The three generally amino acids of taurine, GABA, and tryptophan were the heart of my inhibitory cocktail at this time. These three amino acids, along with a few vitamin and mineral cofactors, were giving me the best sleep of my entire adult life within a month of my first taking them.
Incidentally, the three amino acids of taurine, GABA, and tryptophan happen to be the very same amino acids that were helpful to Margot Kidder in regard to sleep and inhibition. In case you are not aware of this, Margot Kidder is an actress that overcame her own diagnosis of bipolar disorder via solely natural means. Taurine, GABA, and tryptophan also happen to be the same three amino acids that Julia Ross speaks about using successfully for inhibition in her book “The Mood Cure”. To the best of my knowledge, Margot Kidder, Julia Ross, and I all reached similar conclusions on these three amino acids independently of each other. Although it is true that any one person can respond positively or negatively to any individual amino acid, and therefore this inhibitory amino acid regime is clearly not for everyone, it appears rather remarkable to me that three persons independently of each other all found these same three amino acids as being useful to either themselves or their clients.
September of 1997 marked the last time that I have ever needed or wanted to take any medication whatsoever to control mania or depression in myself. Nutrients and other natural measures not only “did the job much better” than any medication that I ever took for my illness, nutrients and other natural measures also did the job much faster as well. Amino acids often work within a single hour, sometimes they need a single day, and rarely do amino acids need more than a handful of days to effect profoundly positive mood change. This should perhaps not be surprising, as roughly 99 out of the 100 or so known neurotransmitters are primarily amino acid based, as well as amino acids represent nearly 75% of the functional chemistry in the body, once the water is taken out.
By January of 1998, I realized that manic depression was often simply the result of a sub-clinical malabsorption syndrome, of which allergic and toxic issues were nearly always involved as well. At this time I also realized that (1) multiple hidden food allergies, (2) intestinal dysbiosis issues (dysbiosis essentially means candida and other yeasts, various problematic bacteria, and/or parasites), (3) a possible lack of digestive enzymes, (4) a possible lack of HCL (stomach acid), (4) excessive cooked food intake, (5) a lack of nutrients in our depleted soils, and (6) stress (which is always biochemically depleting, no matter what the source) were all issues that were either causative or contributory factors in my illness.
Of the aforementioned six factors, I sensed that multiple hidden food allergies and intestinal dysbiosis were often the primary issues to address in almost any person that is bipolar. It appears that these two factors are often the root cause of bipolar disorder in many of those thus afflicted.
Incidentally, other persons besides myself, many of them doctors or professional health care providers, believe that hidden food allergy and intestinal dysbiosis issues are often major, if not primary, causative factors underlying both ADHD and alcoholism as well. In addition to this, hidden food allergy and/or intestinal dysbiosis issues are strongly implicated by alternative medicine as a whole as being either causative or contributory to the symptoms of various other mental and physical maladies such as autism, schizophrenia, anxiety, fibromyalgia, migraines, and arthritis.
Over the past six years or so I have added a few more common malabsorptive factors to the conceptual overview reflected above. One of these malabsorptive factors is the possibility of inadequate hydration. Adequate water intake apparently helps with nutrient absorption in the small intestines. A second possible malabsorptive factor that I have added over time is inadequate physical movement in regard to the abdominal area. We humans were apparently designed to walk far more that our modern lifestyle dictates we do. This physical movement helps the intestinal area to work as well as it should, and it apparently helps nutrient absorption.
Despite my later realizations, for the most part the general conceptual overview that I developed in late 1997 is pretty much the same one that I am still using to remain well today. The general principle underlying this conceptual overview is “any factor that impairs adequate nutrient absorption into the body is a factor that can either directly cause or greatly contribute to the symptoms of manic depression”. And the general principal that “cures” bipolar disorder is “any and all common factors which impair nutrient delivery into the body are both fairly readily identifiable and adequately correctable in any person that may have them”.
Worthy of note here is that there appears to be a number of alternative practitioners that are either unaware themselves or that wish to take advantage of some of their patients that may be unaware for the purpose of fiscal gain. You do not need any doctor whatsoever to determine your hidden food allergies. No laboratory test whatsoever is accurate enough to determine someone’s food allergies or food intolerances. You only need to go on an elimination diet that is performed by you at home. Yet, perhaps tens of thousands of hidden food allergy tests of various sorts are still being recommended and prescribed to patients yearly by many practitioners of alternative medicine. You also do not need any laboratory tests whatsoever to determine candida or other intestinal dysbiosis issues in yourself as well. Simply dosing up slowly until you reach a therapeutic dosage level (that shows solid results both in the toilet and in your general bowel habits) with a probiotic such as powdered Primal Defense is all that is necessary to determine if candida and “bad bacteria” in the GI tract were a major problem for you prior to taking Primal Defense. And parasite testing is both known to be quite inaccurate and non-inclusive (it can miss a lot). An herbal parasitic regime administered by yourself at home such as that recommended by Dr. Hulda Clark or the website http://www.curezone.com is far better than using any laboratory testing and/or medication whatsoever to resolve the issues of parasites if this issue applies to you. In addition, you don’t need either a doctor or any testing whatsoever to resolve the possible lack of digestive enzymes in yourself. Trial use of a powerful enzyme preparation such as DigestEnz, slowly dosing up while monitoring the effect in yourself is good simple advice that anyone can follow at home to determine if they may lack an adequate production of digestive enzymes in order to digest meals well. This can without the services or advice of any doctor whatsoever. And the trial use of HCL an hour or so after taking digestive enzymes when you eat a meal (if you are using such), dosing up slowly while monitoring the effect in yourself is good simple advice that anyone can follow at home to determine possible stomach acid deficiency in his or her self. This can also be done without the services or advice of any doctor whatsoever. Although the information contained in this paragraph is not nearly thorough enough to fully resolve these common malabsorptive issues of hidden food allergy, intestinal dysbiosis, a possible lack of digestive enzymes, and a possible lack of HCL, I think that you, the reader, may have a solid sense of where I am going here. “YOU CAN, IF NOT MUST, CURE YOURSELF” of manic depression for the most part. And you can do so without getting a lot of expensive and/or marginally useful (if not useless) laboratory tests to do so.
Going back to my story….
During 1998 and 1999, it became clear to me that the broad biochemical deficiency that manic depression not only effects the brain, it also effects the liver, the pancreas, the thyroid gland, the adrenal glands, etc. Every organ and cell in the body is essentially starving for functional nutrition in order for it to perform properly when one is bipolar.
And during 1998 and 1999, I also realized that most of the efforts to correct manic depression via natural means should be targeted towards correcting GI tract dysfunction, and not just targeted toward correcting the function of the brain itself. The brain is simply “a trailing secondary organ to primary gut events”. Gut status and brain status are far more closely connected than most persons realize.
Since September of 1997, when I first read the classic alternative medicine books Depression – Cured At Last by Dr. Sherry Rogers and The Way Up From Down by Dr. Priscilla Slagle (two books that greatly taught me the concepts in the conceptual model discussed above), I have picked through and picked through this newer alternative medicine reality, refining, validating, and/or improving on its great new truths.
I should perhaps mention here that I am of the opinion that newer alternative medical reality as generally represented by Dr. Sherry Rogers, Dr. Priscilla Slagle, Joan Matthews Larson, Patrick Holford, Dr. Charles Gant, Jerry Rubin, Elizabeth Lipski, Julia Ross and a number of other doctors and practitioners today is probably going to replace many of the older concepts and treatments of alternative medicine. Doctors such as Dr. Abram Hoffer (a man that is admittedly a true hero in my eyes nonetheless) and Dr. William Walsh are still espousing some older orthomolecular concepts and alternative treatments as “the highest degree of alternative medical truth”. Perhaps they are right. Only time will tell here. However, my life experience (an experience which has included taking well over 120,000 capsules of various supplements since mid-1997), my hundreds of informal self trials of intentionally inducing and then correcting bipolar symptoms (especially depression), and the great deal of research I have done since mid 1997 has led me to disagree with these doctors for the most part. I disagree with them in regard to their (1) general conceptual misunderstanding of my illness, (2) their incorrect focus in treating bipolar disorder as a result of point (1), and in regard to many of the treatments that they either recommend or miss recommending (when I feel such treatments are often necessary).
In stating the above, I do not mean to demean the individual, if not heroic, efforts of Dr. Hoffer, Dr. Walsh and other doctors of the same genre in any way whatsoever. However, it strongly appears to me that a newer conceptual model of mental illness and its proper treatment is replacing an older one inside the arena of alternative medicine. I am a person that concurs with this newer conceptual alternative understanding. This newer understanding seems to have begun to blossom over the last six years or so, an event to which we all perhaps owe special thanks to Dr. Sherry Rogers for her absolutely brilliant thought and her rather prolific writing. Dr. Rogers was by far my greatest teacher, despite her not knowing how to use amino acids therapeutically at all. (Knowledge of amino acid use was knowledge that I found was key for me in order to properly resolve my illness, and for this knowledge I had to go elsewhere.)
By early 2000, after many years of great effort, a hundred or so books, hundreds of conversations with other persons, many thousands of miles driven, and many tens of thousands of dollars spent, for all ostensible purposes I realized how I could always correct mania and depression in myself by solely using natural means. At this point in time, I could avoid any and all symptoms of my illness whenever I desired to. I could hit a “biochemical 10″ day after day and month after month at will if I so chose to do so. For me a “biochemical 10″ means that I exhibit an aura of deep mental and physical wellness that is rather obvious to anyone that sees me. When I am a “biochemical 10″ I live in the present. I feel great each and every moment that I am awake; and I am not manic at all, nor am I depressed at all as well. Very few “normal persons” without any psychiatric diagnosis whatsoever appear to feel nearly as well as I do or are as mood stable as I am when I am a “biochemical 10″ as I define this to be in myself.
Once I knew that I could hit a “biochemical 10″ at will whenever I wished to do so, I did something rather unusual, but with a number of reasons behind it. I often settled for a degree of wellness that was far less than a 10, a situation that is still true today. One reason for this is that for me to be a “biochemical 10″ cost quite a bit of money supplement-wise (between $400 to $500 a month), a cost that I could not always afford. A second reason for this is that to be a 10 I had to always avoid quite a few foods that were constantly being put in front of me by either family or friends. Rather than always refuse them, I’d simply eat a food that I knew that I would react to negatively to some extent, and then I would test treatment methodology (clear this food out the next day or the day after by using high dosage bentonite and psyllium). And the third reason, and by far the most important one, is that if I stayed a 10 month after month, my ability to continue to learn by trial and error and my ability to test or refine better treatments for my illness was completely lost. I was, and still am, willing to sacrifice my optimal own wellness for the sake of learning and for the sake of others. Few persons understand or accept this, but that is their problem, not mine.
Since the fall of 1997, I have not been trying all of the supplements and natural measures that I have simply to achieve my own wellness. I have been attempting to learn all that I can about my illness in order to make a greater contribution to the general understanding of it. I have been willingly and intentionally sacrificing my own optimal health and wellness in order to help other persons that still suffer. For the past seven years I have often been intentionally sloppy with my natural wellness regime. I have intentionally ingested my known food allergens at least a few hundred times, if not more. I have often intentionally caused or aggravated intestinal dysbiosis issues in myself as well (by a high sugar diet). In doing so, I have intentionally caused manic depressive symptoms in myself, often to the point of severity. My goals in doing this were to test, validate, and/or refine my preexisting knowledge. As a concrete example here, I have intentionally induced and then corrected depression at will in myself within a day or two over a hundred times since August of 1999, the point in which I first realized that I could do so. I did not mind doing this at all, as it is my sincere belief that I was and still am developing a “world changing degree of knowledge”.
Since early 2000, I can quite literally create and then correct a rather incredible range of depressive symptoms in myself by using only natural means from within a matter of a handful of hours to a matter of three or four days. I can also create and then correct a significant degree of manic symptoms in myself by using only natural means within a matter of hours to a matter of days at will as well. Admittedly, despite the fact that I have been severely manic a few hundred times in my life between 1963 and 1996, it is extremely hard for me to become much more than seriously hypomanic at this point in time, and to do so can take me well over a month. I have simply corrected my biochemistry chemistry too much these past seven years or so to get severely manic any more without a great deal of time and effort. Although I can get hypomanic readily at will by taking a high dose of excitatory amino acids along with some vitamin and mineral cofactors, this state does not last longer than a matter of hours, and it appears to always be completely self corrective without any further intervention whatsoever. This is quite a contrast to my manic states years ago, in which my seriously hypomanic states had a strong tendency to continue to escalate to the point of severe mania. Conversely, I can simply eat right (which means avoiding my food allergens and eating a diet that is good for me), take care of my gut properly such that it is always absorptive and has a low level of toxins, and supplement my biochemistry as necessary. In doing so, I suffer no symptoms of manic depression whatsoever.
I have found few persons understand or accept what I am attempting to do in the above. I have also found that many persons are either awful quick to criticize me or they try to discredit me with others for not being completely well at all times. They either do not realize or do not accept that all of what I have been doing for a number of years and am still doing today in regard to my being well or my becoming sick is often intentional for the purpose of learning more about my illness. And if my being sick is not intentional, it is just that I have become too fiscally impoverished to be able to remain optimal at all times. I simply conserve my supply of costly supplements to be optimally well when the need arises. However, given adequate fiscal means to do so, and a valid reason (or reasons) to be optimally well, I can be such at all times. This has been the case since April 2000, if not a few months sooner.
If the truth was actually known, by any valid measurement whatsoever, I have quite literally “cured myself of over three decades of severe symptoms of manic depression”. I do not know it all about manic depression. Some persons are very likely to be more right that I am on some of the details concerning this illness. However, as a result of both my recovery and my research, it seems entirely possible to me that I have may have developed a “Nobel Prize winning level of understanding” of my illness. No, I do not expect to win this prize, and yes, such a thought does smack of manic delusion. I simply state such to give the reader a sense of where I honestly think I am here. Regardless of whether I am intentionally mildly depressed, severely depressed, of normal mood, hypomanic, or I happen to be a “biochemical 10″ at the moment, I have waken up each and every single day for more than four years knowing that the fact that I may have developed a “Nobel Prize winning level of understanding” of manic depression is very probably the truth. I do realize that no one as yet believes in either my representations or me personally. However, I also realize that it is extremely likely that no one on earth as yet has a clue as to how to methodically and adequately resolve a state of severe depression in his or her self in a period of time that averages as little as eight to twelve hours, assuming that they have an empty stomach prior to initiating treatment.
I have realized for quite some time that for many millions of other bipolar persons it is inevitable that medication use to control manic depression is going to be found pointless, if not seriously counterproductive to their true recovery. No medication ever invented can correct a substantial degree of essential nutrient deficiency. And fairly broad essential nutrient deficiency is clearly a very major part of what manic depression is truly all about. Medication, despite its ability to often successfully mask the symptoms of manic depression, is also successfully masking the real truth about the true causes and corrections of this state of biochemical imbalance, a state of imbalance that involves far more nutrient deficiency than nutrient excess.
Despite my saying the above, I am not entirely anti-medication. I am anti-symptom. Medication use is often a very valid steppingstone to true wellness. Medication use is still very justified until the new reality of how to cure manic depression via natural means is better worked out such that it can be widely and safely applied to other persons. Unfortunately, this latter event may take quite some time. This is because current medical research and medical practice is totally deaf to those of all of us that have either cured ourselves of this devastating illness or have made very substantial progress in this direction, and it has been deaf to us for years. It is perhaps far too much of an embarrassment to the current medical model that a number of fairly simple and fairly basic biological facts, when they are coupled together successfully as I have done, will often totally cure decades of severe symptoms of manic depression. Or perhaps this medical model and the pharmaceutical model underlying it is making way too much money, an income that they don’t want to lose if we all become well. Or perhaps persons will ask, “If manic depression is fully correctable with nutrients and other natural measures, what other illnesses can be corrected via similar natural means as well?”
If the real truth becomes known, perhaps almost every illness, both mental and physical, is going to be found to benefit far more from over the counter nutrients purchased in a health food store (or over the internet) than any medication that was ever invented. This latter truth has to scare modern medicine to death, as many doctors may lose their million dollar houses, their $50,000 cars, and anything else that may need their high incomes from dispensing medications, many of which are ultimately going to be found to be obsolete. This finding that the majority of medications are rather pale compared to the power of essential nutrients (applied properly) may take ten years to happen, it may take twenty years to happen, but it IS going to happen. The truth of the power of nutrients vs. the weakness of medication is a truth that is just far too powerful, and just way too obvious, to ignore much longer.
I know the real truth as represented in the above in a very real and deeply heartfelt way.
I know the real truth of the power of nutrients vs. the weakness of medicines partially as the result of my personally taking well over 120,000 capsules or tablets of various vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, probiotics, digestive enzymes, accessory nutrients, and other natural supplements since mid 1997. At least 80,000 of these were capsules of individual or blended amino acids… which happen to be “great teachers” of how both human biochemistry and the GI tract work from a practical standpoint. Such massive supplementation is not necessary to correct manic depression. However, this massive supplementation was necessary for me in order to perform many hundreds of informal self trials over the past six years as “a guinea pig for the rest of the world” in order to discover much of significance about my illness.
I also know the real truth partially as the result of my learning how to take mania right out of the equation in 1997/8 by the use of inhibitory nutrients on a daily basis. Part of the nutrients that I take to resolve mania also greatly helps me to resolve sleep onset, sleep quality, and sleep duration issues in myself as well. Very similar inhibitory nutrients to that which I am using have perhaps helped many hundreds, if not thousands, of persons to slow down, to resolve hypomania and mania, to resolve anxiety, etc. I highly suggest the book “The Mood Cure” by Julia Ross here. Although I disagree with Ms. Ross on her suggestions regarding excitatory amino acids, as I feel they are outdated, and I also feel Ms. Ross also misses a possibly key inhibitory nutrient combination of carnitine and phosphatidyl choline, my experience with using combinations of inhibitory amino acids almost mirrors Ms. Ross’s suggestions exactly. It appears that Julia Ross, Margot Kidder, the actress that overcame bipolar disorder in herself via natural means, and myself independently reached extremely similar conclusions on how to use inhibitory amino acids in the late 1990′s or so.
I know the real truth about the power of nutrients vs. medication partly as a result of discovering a nutrient combination in the fall of 1997 that acted just like lithium in me. This nutrient combination both slowed and steadied my rate of neuronal firing, just like lithium does, but without my having any adverse side effects whatsoever. This nutrient combination is l-carnitine in the morning and phosphatidyl choline afterwards. In my opinion, the nutrient combination of carnitine/choline simply begs to be researched in regard to its effect on manic depression. Perhaps inositol or other nutrients may either help or be necessary cofactors here as well, but no doubt about it, in combination with what else I was taking l-carnitine and phosphatidyl choline (in an adequate dosage, I use 500 mg. of carnitine and 3 to 5 capsules of phosphatidyl choline from Solgar) profoundly slowed down my “spontaneous rate of neuronal firing”, just like lithium does. It also lowered my speech volume and slowed my rate of speech remarkably. Unfortunately, since late 1997 my cries on this issue of research into carnitine/choline (along with a multivitamin multimineral preparation and some Omega 3 oil perhaps to cover any other unknown nutrient cofactors) and its effect on those bipolar persons that are primarily hypomanic or manic much of the time have failed. No one yet has looked at this possible breakthrough discovery that I made in the fall of 1997 in regard to what nutrients are often necessary in order to “slow the brain down”. The norm here, a norm that is unfortunately still true today, is that I am either labeled “manic delusional” for my claiming to have made any very significant discovery about manic depression (and I have made quite a few), or that I am just ignored.
I know the real truth partly as a result of my feeling at least 15 years younger physically than I did six years ago. My skin color is much better, my weight is 30 lbs. less, my muscles are and my skeletal frame are much stronger, and I have far more vitality than most persons who smoke cigarettes as much and as long as I have. My cigarette addiction I admittedly have yet to resolve. For me anyway, curing myself of manic depression is far easier that beating a heavy addiction to nicotine.
I know the real truth as the result of curing myself of both TMJ in my jawbone and also completely resolving a very arthritic and problematic back that bothered me greatly on a regular basis for almost 20 years. My back never bothers me at all now, a fact that never ceases to amaze me, as I had such serious back trouble for so long.
I know the real truth over the power of nutrients vs. medications partly as the result of my recommending a very similar nutrient regime to that which I use to control manic depression to help a person to resolve five years of fairly heavy heroin use, during which he nearly died three times (from overdose). What I gave this person nutrient-wise profoundly helped him from almost day one. Within a month he was a new man, with an aura of wellness and contentment that he hadn’t had in years. This event happened nearly two years ago.
And most amazingly, I know the real truth as the result of discovering in late 1999 of how to intentionally induce a state of very severe depression with suicidal ideation attached in myself at will within three to four days or so by eating common foods that I am allergic to, and then learning how to adequately correct this suicidally depressed state within a matter of hours to at most a single day in myself. For other persons this nutritive and natural therapy may take a few days to a week. However, I can’t imagine the fairly comprehensive and all natural anti-depressive therapy that I am using taking much more than a week to have an amazingly positive effect on both mood and general well being in all but a small minority of persons (the few that are truly very ill).
Every day for over three years, if not closer to six, I wake up to the reality that it is entirely possible that, as a result of relying on a great deal of foundation work of many other persons, I may have developed some of the most accurate conceptual and practical insight into how to correct depression and manic depression to date. I say this despite the facts that (1) I am not a doctor, (2) I have almost no formal education beyond high school (despite being gifted), and (3) I still smoke cigarettes rather heavily. I do not claim perfection to anyone, but I sincerely apologize to all for not resolving my cigarette addiction, as this seriously damages my credibility on any health matters whatsoever.
Unfortunately, I also wake up to the reality that after spending perhaps as much as $200,000, if not more, in a search for answers concerning manic depression since July of 1994, my access to any sizable funds ran out in August of 2002. I now have to live on less than $800 a month net. Yet I morally cannot, and will not, take “a regular job” for greater fiscal gain. Nothing in this world means more to me but to do my best to do all that I can to attempt to end the enormous suffering that manic depression and depression causes. A regular job for fiscal gain would just interfere with this goal, as it would take up too much of my time and energy, time and energy that I have been freely giving for years to help all humankind.
Despite the above, I am not here with my hand out to ask for or to take anything at all. Money means almost nothing to me. I was a self-made millionaire once in my life, and I was so depressed I almost blew my brains out. Now I am healthy both mentally and physically. Other than retaining my own health and well being, only one other single thing really matters to me. This “other thing” is my seeing that answers that I may have discovered as a result of extraordinary effort since my diagnosis of bipolar disorder in June 1994 move forward as they should… such that many other persons are ultimately cured of manic depression without having to take nearly as long and hard a road as I had to travel in which to do so.
I sure could use some solid help from other intelligent persons with in regard to the answers that I have discovered in regarding to correcting depression within a matter of days, if not a matter of hours, in most persons so afflicted. I have been asking for this help for years, both inside the medical model and within the confines of alternative medicine. Thus far, my pleas for help with discoveries that I know to be significant have been to no avail. I have been repeatedly ignored by both conventional and alternative medicine. The claims that I have been making since early 2000 in regard to the correction of severe depression in such a short time are perhaps just too extraordinary to be believed by anyone, yet I know in my heart that in essence these claims are absolutely true. Certainly, I might not be right about everything, and much of what I know could be easily improved on or refined. However, just as it stands the multi-stage natural anti-depressive therapy that I first discovered beginning in August of 1999 and had verified within months of its discovery is a very logical therapy. It is also a therapy that is based on much solid biological and scientific fact as well. In my opinion, this natural anti-depressive therapy has also been anecdotally validated well enough at this point be worth a solid look at by at least some person or organizational body. It would certainly help if this person or organizational body had the ability to effect real change, as I am powerless by myself in this regard.
We humans appear to be very odd creatures. I just don’t understand why I have been blessed with such extraordinary knowledge of how to correct depression and manic depression via natural means… and then I reach out to others for help to take a look at what I have discovered… and the end result is that I often just get either personally attacked or ignored… despite the fact that my heart is in the right place and I only want to help… and I have no agenda of enrichment or self aggrandizement whatsoever. I don’t mind a whit if my discoveries are plagiarized by others and/or I don’t receive either a dime or any credit whatsoever for them… as long these discoveries are validated and refined by a party capable of doing so… and then used to reduce much human suffering, as I am aware that they can.
Lastly, I pray that some day in the future the current medical model will not continue to ignore the overwhelming anecdotal evidence that has been generated for many years that the two biochemical issues of hidden food allergy and intestinal dysbiosis (which conventional doctors often actually cause by the prescription of antibiotics) are often primary causative factors in depression, manic depression, ADHD, schizophrenia, alcoholism (and perhaps other substance abuse as well), fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines, and a whole host of other physical and mental illnesses. I also pray that some day lessons such as those that I have learned in my recovery from over three decades of bipolar symptoms are not only actually heard, but that they are acted upon appropriately by someone, as well as acted upon appropriately by modern medical science.

Active Title Link: A WordPress Blog Addressed To The Mafia In Regard To A Winning And Profitable Situation For Them Out Of This (1-23-2013)
If my WordPress Collaborative Internet Team and I are not murdered by the Mafia or murdered or jailed by our Federal Government, and we four persons are allowed to continue our Freedom of Speech WordPress Website Development Work, when the United States Federal Government Falls to the Truth, a mutually beneficial arrangement can be had between the American Public and the Mafia in regard to stripping many people of their ill gotten gains and sharing in the fiscal rewards from doing this.
The net benefit of doing the above can easily exceed what the Mafia makes now, and the American Public would benefit from and support such too, if it was handled right.
For the Mafia to buck the tide of growing public awareness that our Federal Government needs to be replaced by a Newer, More Modern, and More Honest Internet Based One is Only Going To Get Them In Big Trouble with the American Public at some point.
It would be far wiser for the Mafia to realize that “the Days of Secrets” and “Secretive Murder” are ending, due to the Power of the Internet.
For the Mafia to kill either myself or any of my WordPress Collaborative Internet Team while Google, Facebook, Twitter, Jim Humble, those Still Somewhat Moral Persons in Our Federal Government, and Other Persons “Internet Witness This” is going to get you in real hot water at some point in the foreseeable future. (The Backlash by the American Public Against the Mafia for Killing My WordPress Collaborative Internet Team and I could be enormous after Revolution Succeeds In America. This is due to the fact that Once Revolution Succeeds In America, Those Persons that Take Over our Federal Government Will Possess the Knowledge that the Mafia Controlled the Last Federal Government that we had. These Same People Will Also Possess the Knowledge that the Mafia Killed Us In Part To Stop Revolution, and In Part To Prop Up The Hoax Of Pharmaceutical Medicine, which they greatly profit from.)
There are enough people in the United States of America that have come to realize the Fact that America needs a Federal Government that Controls the Banks, the Corporations, and the Mafia… rather than “the other way around” as things are today. (If there are not enough people that yet realize this, due to the Power of the Internet, there eventually will be.)
Whether I am Dead Or Alive, Revolution in America is perhaps closer than anyone thinks.

Dear Freedom Friends:
The article that this blog is about is not my material. It is an article I got from a Great! Free Newsletter that I get from Pakalert Press.
The link to this article is below:
Congress Declares ‘Offensive’ War on the Internet in NDAA (Posted on truther on December 18, 2011)
I cannot recommend the free newsletter from Pakalert Press enough. (It is one of a number of Great Alternative News Sources on the Internet.)
Many of Pakalert Press’s articles are well written, insightful, truthful, and quite germane.
The Website for Pakalart Press is http://www.pakalertpress.com/
The bottom line underlying Governmental Censorship of the Internet, and locking up those of us that are using the Internet to Spread the Truth is this:
Just as many corporate structures such as Big Pharma, Big Medicine, Big Agriculture, Big Food, Big Oil, Big Coal, Big Natural Gas, Big Nuclear Energy, Big Energy, Big Banks, and Wall Street CANNOT STAND THE TRUTH BECOMING KNOWN BY THE MASSES – NEITHER CAN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STAND THE TRUTH (as it dances to the aforementioned Corporate Puppet Masters at all times).
I am a dead man (or a man locked away forever) at the hands of our Federal Government, unless the Mafia (on behalf of Big Pharma) gets to me first.
All I ask as “my last dying wish” (should such an event happen) is that the Internet Freedom and Freedom In General Movements remember Nicola Tesla, Royal Raymond Rife, Bob Beck, Stan Meyer, Adam Trombly, Charles Pogue, Gary Vesperman, myself, and many others of similar ilk (many of whom Gary Vesperman wrote about) this Spring.

Active Title Link: Some Interesting Facts and Figures Regarding Health Care and Energy Costs (10/22/2011)
Dear Fellow Americans:
The current population of the United States [as of 10/22/2011] is about 312 million persons. This figure came from http://www.census.gov/main/www/popclock.html.
The United States used 18,690,000 barrels of oil per day in 2009. This number came from http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/ene_oil_con-energy-oil-consumption.
I am going to estimate oil consumption in America in 2011 to be 20,000,000 barrels of oil per day. This is admittedly a “rough number”. I am trying to make conceptual points in the material below. Exactness is not required in order to do so.
The price of oil today is $85.30. This number came from http://www.oil-price.net/.
The cost of oil consumption per day in America is $1,706,000,000 (about one point seven billion dollars).
The cost of oil consumption per week in America is $11,942,000,000 (almost twelve billion dollars).
The cost of oil consumption per 30 day month in America is $51,180,000,000 (about fifty one billion dollars).
The cost of oil consumption per 365 day year in America is $622,690,000,000 (about six hundred and twenty three billion dollars).
The oil consumption cost per person per year in America using a rounded 312 million population count is $1995.
Coal costs about $100 per ton. This number came from http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/20/patriotcoal-idUSL3E7LK1LY20111020.
Coal consumption in the United States is 1,060,000,000 tons used per year. This number came from http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/ene_coa_con-energy-coal-consumption.
The 1,060,000,000 tons of coal used per year in the United States times $100 per ton equals $106,000,000,000 (One hundred and six billion dollars).
The annual cost per capita for coal in America equals about $340 per person.
Natural gas consumption in the United States in 2010 was 24,087,938 million cubic feet. This number came from http://22.214.171.124/dnav/ng/NG_CONS_SUM_DCU_NUS_A.htm.
The cost of natural gas in the United States is $4.27 per thousand cubic feet. This number came from http://126.96.36.199/dnav/ng/ng_pri_sum_dcu_nus_m.htm.
If a thousand cubic feet of natural gas costs $4.27, then a million cubic feet of natural gas costs $4270, which is one thousand times as much as $4.27.
The total natural gas consumption in the United States of roughly 24,000,000 million cubic feet times $4270 per million cubic feet equals about 102 billion dollars.
The annual cost per capita for natural gas in the United States equals about $327 per person.
The total cost for oil, coal, and natural gas use (fossil fuel use) in the United States equals about eight hundred and thirty one billion dollars (623/oil + 106/coal + 102/natural gas = 831/total cost).
The total cost for oil, coal, and natural gas use in the United States equals about $2660 per person.
Incidentally, if it was not for the fact that “Free Energy Invention” has been systematically and pervasively suppressed by BOTH our own Federal Government AND numerous Corporations for about a century our fossil fuel cost could be only a small fraction of what it is today. (See the blog titled Two Persons That the OWS People’s Movement Should Become Aware Of and Why (10/19/2011) for more details.)
The total Health Care Cost in the U.S. in 2009 was about $2,500,000,000,000 (two point five trillion dollars). This number came from http://articles.latimes.com/2010/feb/04/nation/la-na-healthcare4-2010feb04.
The total Health Care Cost now in America is now running at the rate of $2,700,000,000,000 (two point seven trillion dollars). This number came from a magazine article I read not too long ago.
Total health care spending in America is expected to nearly double to $4.6 trillion dollars in 2020, from $2.6 trillion dollars in 2010.
Health care spending per capita in America is forecast to increase to $13,708 in 2020 from $8,327 in 2010.
The numbers in the above two paragraphs came from http://money.cnn.com/2011/07/28/news/economy/healthcare_spending_forecast/index.htm.
In a magazine article I read not too long ago, they had an even higher number of $8650 per person being spent on health care today in the U.S.
Even using the conservative number in the material above, our current health care cost of $8,327 per person in 2010 is more than three times the total cost of oil, coal, and natural gas use of $2660 per person in the United States.
Our total Health Care Cost in America is about 17.5 percent of GDP.
This total Health Care Cost is headed northward to 20% of GDP within only a matter of few short years.
Then it is headed further northward to 25% of GDP.
This situation continues to get even worse.
What follows is an interesting quote from our own Congressional Budget Office:
CBO projects that without significant changes in policy, total spending for health care will be 31 percent of GDP by 2035 and will increase to 46 percent by 2080.
The above came from http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/102xx/doc10297/chapter2.5.1.shtml.
In case you don’t know what GDP means what follows is a definition of GDP from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gross_domestic_product.
Gross domestic product (GDP) refers to the market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period.
Now let’s contrast the above to 1960.
In 1960 there were 189,323,175 million people living in the United States.
The GDP in 1960 was about 520 billion dollars (1960 non-inflation adjusted dollars). This number came from http://www.google.com/publicdata/explore?ds=d5bncppjof8f9_&met_y=ny_gdp_mktp_cd&idim=country:USA&dl=en&hl=en&q=what+is+gdp
Our National Health Care Cost was about 5% of GDP in 1960.
Our total Health Care Cost nationwide in 1960 was about 26 billion dollars in “1960 money”.
Money was worth a lot more in 1960 than it is today.
Okay, so let us adjust for inflation.
$1.00 in 1960 had the same buying power as $7.46 in 2011. This number came from http://www.dollartimes.com/calculators/inflation.htm.
Twenty six billion dollars of 1960 money is equivalent to about 193 billion dollars today.
In 1960, one hundred and ninety three billion dollars of “inflation adjusted money” covered the entire health care costs of one hundred and eighty nine million Americans.
***Amazingly, the total Health Care Cost per person in the U.S. in 1960 was ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY SEVEN DOLLARS (1960 DOLLARS) PER PERSON.***
Due to Inflation from 1960 until the present day this $137 cost in 1960 dollars grew to to $1021 in 2011 dollars.
The Annual Health Care Cost per person in America in 1960 was ABOUT ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS (in 2011 dollars).
The actual Annual Health Care Cost per person in America in 2010 was $8,327.
It was in the neighborhood of $8,650 in 2011.
We are now spending about EIGHT AND A HALF TIMES as much on health care on a per person basis as we did in 1960.
[Is our health care system now eight and a half times better now than it was in 1960? I sure don’t think so. Didn’t doctors sometimes still make house calls then? And didn’t many children play sports like baseball, football, basketball, and hockey (whatever was in season) almost daily for hours then? Those of us about sixty or so will remember this. (I am 59.) We were healthy as children back in the fifties and sixties. Many of us in the Baby Boom Generation were far healthier physically and mentally than “always inside the house” video game playing children are now.]
By next year we will be spending about NINE TIMES more than we did in 1960.
It is forecast that we will be spending FOURTEEN TIMES times as much on health care in America as we were in 1960 by the year 2020 (only nine years away).
For a person in the United States today to only be spending only about $2660 on their entire use of oil, coal, and natural gas in 2011 AND at the same time be spending about $8330 on health care… is NUTS!
For a person in the U.S. to be spending *over three times as much” on Medical Care as ALL OIL, COAL, AND NATURAL GAS USE per capita is NUTS!
And for a person in America to be spending over Eight Times! more on health care than they did in 1960 is NUTS too!
For all this “great health care” that we get in the United States, health care that costs over eight times what it did in 1960, one in six children is now considered learning impaired (learning disabled is another term).
Something is really wrong with America when so many children are seriously learning impaired.
And something is really wrong with America when our children as a whole rank so low in educational achievement vs. children in so many other countries.
I blame (1) our corrupt Federal Government, (2) the FDA, (3) Big Food (Monsanto, McDonald’s, General Mills, Coca Cola, etc.), (4) our our mineral depleted soils, (5) our toxic laden environment, (6) chlorinated and fluoridated water, (7) toxic artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and Splenda, (8) our Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), (9) Big Pharma, (10) vaccines, (11) antibiotics, and (12) the hoax of pharmaceutical medicine. (I consider this “The Dirty Dozen”.)
Of all of the parties and issues listed above, I blame the first three and the last four the most.
Who do you blame? And how can we fix all this?

Dear Fellow Americans:
Every bit of genius God gave me at birth and every ounce of my being tells me that the way things are going in the United States (and elsewhere) the following is VERY likely to occur in the U.S. soon:
Not only am I going to be taken away and locked up soon (unless I adequately defend against this), but other persons are going to be taken away and locked up soon as well. (And after being locked up, some of us are going to be killed.)
I am in 100% agreement that there IS A New World Order (NWO) agenda, as espoused by Jesse Ventura, David Icke, Jeff Rense, and Alex Jones (and others as well, of course).
This NWO agenda is threatened by the growing awareness, strength, and vigor of the OWS movement.
Those behind this NWO agenda (the Illuminati? the Bilderbergs? the Club of Rome? The Freemasons?) see “the Handwriting on the Wall”.
The Illuminati know that as the OWS movement Matures over the winter, and then continues to Mature on the street this spring, that “they are Done”.
It goes even further than this. The Illuminati know that they will have to find a way to successfully hide from us (if we beat them in this War we are in) in order to save their own lives for “what they already have done to us” (and have been doing to us for decades, if not over a century).
The Illuminati are justifiably afraid of “Nuremberg trials all over again”. (And they are afraid of being convicted and then hung.)
Given the above, it is “the smarter strategic maneuver” for the Illuminati is to fight Us (the 99% is Us ) as soon as it is practical or possible to do so. This is because the more the OWS movement Matures (and thus becomes more knowledgeable in regard to “free energy” and “me”), the worse it is going to be for them (and the more likely they will lose against us).
What does this all mean?
It means that the Illuminati? the Bilderbergs? the Club of Rome? (or whatever they are called) are going to ***SOON INITIATE the War Against Us (the 99%).*** (Initiate means “Start”, for those of you unfamiliar with the word.)
If my assumptions in the above are correct (I firmly believe that they are), the following is true:
We are rapidly running out of time in which to prepare for being attacked by the Illuminati. (Those of us that are Most Awake/Aware are especially at risk here.)
We that are Most Awake might be locked up or dead before the OWS Movement is on the streets in force again this April or May. (We might even be locked up or dead long before this… say in January.)
It might be VERY WISE for us ***to consider with what Means we can defend ourselves*** given that an attack on us is coming very soon.
And then it might be wise for us to rapidly implement what we have decided upon is a reasonable plan for “our own defense”.
One suggestion that I have in the above regard is for those of us that are Awake to band together in groups of four to six people or so and live together in two family houses or large dwellings all over the country (and the world as well).
The above would greatly help to avoid “secretive arrest”, and “secretive gassing or poisoning” as we could and would all watch out for each other. (“You watch my back and I will watch yours” is classic guerilla warfare strategy.)
A living arrangement such as what is suggested in the above IS ENORMOUSLY HELPING ME AT THE PRESENT TIME.
My three housemates watch out for me at all times, especially the two of them on “my floor”. (Incidentally, there is an empty bedroom on my floor that I pay for. If one can stand a lot of cockroaches, it’s free for the taking to the right person.)
The above “simplicity”, along with some other rather simple security measures, has successfully kept the Mafia at bay for months, despite the fact that “they were almost literally at my door” (to fulfill their longstanding desire to kill me).
The “simple security arrangement” of the watchful company of my peers is apparently working, as amazingly (to me) I am still alive after what I have blogged these past four and a half months.
I am almost certain that I would have been dead at the hands of the Mafia in September or October 2011 without my current “defensive living situation”, one that I call a “bunker apartment”.
Incidentally, this is my third “bunker apartment” in the past two years. I needed all of them. (They all prolonged my life.) Albums of pictures of my first two “bunker apartments” (one in Utica NY and the other in Phoenix AZ) can be found on my Allen Darman Facebook account as follows:
My Bunker Apartment in Utica, NY November 10, 2010
My Bunker Apartment In Phoenix… lol. March 5, 2011
The FEMA camps in the U.S. have coffins for millions.
Sometime soon the Illuminati is going to do its best to start filling these coffins, starting with “the Most Awake” (most aware). (What really concerns me at the moment is that this “sometime” for “me” is highly likely to mean “well before the OWS meets on the street” this April or May.)
FEMA Vans and FEMA trains are coming for us soon (one before the other) here in the U.S.
First it will be unmarked vans arresting some persons and taking them away under the NDAA guidelines defining “domestic terrorists”, and what should be done about them. (Some of us that are Awake are in Great Jeopardy from NDAA now. I sure feel this way.)
Then it will be trains being filled to haul people off en masse for either Indefinite Detention or slaughter, just like the Nazis did. (This latter may admittedly take a a few years or so, after the Illuminati has gained full Military, Police, and Civilian control.)
The only possible way to stop the above remake of the death camp(s) extermination scenario in Nazi Germany from reoccurring is this… those of us that are Awake successfully fight back using (1) the Power of the Internet, (2) using the Power of Bunker Apartments/Houses to protect us from secretive harm while using the Internet, (3) using the Power of Numbers (their being so many more of Us than them), and (4) using the Power of the Truth.
We are at War!!!
We need to get REAL SMART in regard to War Strategy ***and do so quickly***, or we may very well lose this War we are in.
This is the first War being fought with Modern Weapons, such as laptops, cell phones, Facebook, Twitter, and THE TRUTH.
Neither machine guns nor nuclear bombs nor all of the money in the World stand a chance against the Truth.
However, to tell the Truth one must be alive.
From the standpoint of strategy, I am convinced that those of us fighting the NWO would be wise to band together in “Internet connected and networked” small groups.
Small and supportive groups housed in “bunker apartments” or “bunker houses” is our best way to fight against the Power and Wealth of the Illuminati, or whatever they are called.
If we are Smart about this, Use Good Strategy, and Are Careful At All Times… the Power and the Wealth of the Illuminati does not stand a chance.
Truth Trumps Lies, if we are alive to tell it to the World.
Do any heroic people want to join with me to tell the Truth to the World? (I sure could use some competent and Awake help.)
God help us all if the Bad Guys win.

***Important Note: I, Allen Darman, would like to note at the beginning of this SuppressionByAllenD WordPress Blog that the Meeting discussed in the WordPress blog below was not covered by any of the Mainstream Media in the United States, and THAT THIS MEETING WAS ATTENDED BY OFFICIALS OF OUR OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Nothing has been said about it. It was, and still is, a Meeting that was Held in Secret.***
“A closed-door meeting of the world’s governments is taking place in Dubai, and regulation of the Internet is on the agenda” according to Vint Cerf, vice president of Google.
Mr. Cerf further asserts that this UN World Conference on Internet Communications “will give rise to new censorship” and may limit access to the web in various regions.
The above two paragraphs are composed of clips that I took out of an insightful article written by Susanne Posel in regard to Internet Freedom as per the title reflected in the title of this WordPress blog. (This article by Susanne Posel is easily found by Searching For Its Title using Google.)
Virtually ANY *Closed-Door Meeting* of the World’s Governments in which they claim to have *Juristiction Over the Internet* greatly concerns me.
Why is this meeting closed to the media, to include Internet media, all over the world?
Although some in the UN claim that a Free and Open Internet is a good thing, they may be lying to cover up the Truth.
Why may they be lying to cover up the Truth?
Because a Free and Open Internet threatens all Federal Governments worldwide. A Free and Open Internet also threatens numerous Corporate entities called Big Banking, Big Oil, Big Coal, Big Nuclear (the Nuclear Power Industry), Big Pharma, Big Medicine (drug oriented medicine), etc. worldwide as well.
The bottom line of the matter of this UN conference currently being held in Dubai is simply this…
Billions of people are now connected to a Free and Open Internet.
We are Waking Up to Multiple Important Truths all over the World.
The above facts threaten obsolete, corrupt, secretive and suppressive Federal governments in which “people were kept in the dark” in regard to important issues which affected their fiscal health, physical health, mental health, general well-being… as well as the environmental health of our planet as a whole.
So now the UN is “seeing what it can do about this”… can “It put the Genie of Widespread and Important Truths Via the Internet back in the bottle?”, and if not “What Are the Many Implications of this?”.
I pray to God that Unjust Restrictions, Suppression, Taxation and/or Censorship of a Free and Open Internet is not the UN’s answer.
A Free and Open Internet is perhaps *the Only Answer to Survival* that humanity has got.

***Important Prefacing Notes DATED 1-15-2013:
Some Member or Members of My WordPress Collaborative Internet Team KEEPS BRINGING THIS PARTICULAR BLOG UP TO THE TOP Of Various Websites of ours, and posting it at THE TOP DESPITE IT BEING “Out of Order Date and Time-wise”.
THIS MEANS TO ME THAT THEY ARE SEEING SOME OF OUR WordPress BLOGS DISAPPEARING BY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (OR MAFIA) HACKER REMOVAL On Their End In Either Florida Or San Francisco. AllenD (end of Prefacing Notes)
I have been using the Google Search Engine to Monitor the Health and Wellness of a Number Of My Revolutionary WordPress Collaborative Team Websites.
Day after Day I see Google list links to Web Pages that can no longer be found.
It is my firm belief that when Google created these Links to Various Web Pages on Various Websites of ours, that these Web Pages existed.
Yet now it is often the case that these Web Pages of Ours that come up in a Google Search can no longer be found.
For the Reader to understand the above in a practical sense, simply Google Search Nutrientscure.WordPress.com and work down the Search Results shown Link by Link. Or go to our “Dirty Dozen WordPress Websites” and Click on the Links shown.
We are all WordPress Professionals. EVERY SINGLE LINK WE POST SHOULD WORK! Any one that does not work is the result of Hacker Subterfuge and Interference.
However, the Above Website Mentioned IS NOT THE ONLY WordPress WEBSITES OF OURS THAT IS LOSING WordPress BLOGS to Hacker Corruption or HACKER DELETION Of Our WordPress Team’s BLOGS.
All of our
*Key* Revolutionary WordPress Websites
*Key* WordPress Blogs
Have been ***Heavily Affected***
By this “Blog Removal By Hackers Problem”
(And by this Blog Corruption By Hackers Problem as well).
This Situation sure appears to me
To be a Case Of Suppression Of Truth
Via The Methodology Of
The United States Federal Government
Employing Computer Hackers To Effect
U.S Federal Government Internet Censorship .
It may be worthy to note
That the blogs being removed
Target our own Federal Government the most.
If I had to “Pick One” of
The two likely Adversarial Parties Of
My WordPress Collaborative Internet Team’s
That was doing this WordPress Blog Corruption
And WordPress Blog Removal,
It would absolutely be the Federal Government.
The Mafia is almost certainly behind
The REPEATED POISON GAS ATTACKS
On Two of My WordPress Collaborative
Internet Team Members,
But it is the Federal Government
That Is Almost Certainly Behind
The Ongoing Attack On My Team’s
And WordPress Web Pages
Since December 17th 2012,
The Day That Internet Freedom Died
In the United States Of America.
