  1. If reported incidences of autism were as high in 1960 as they are today, Bill Gates would have been institutionalised by age five. If Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein were alive today, they would be locked up for their own good. Welcome to the yuga of the extroverted imbecile, where everything’s cool as long as you play nicely and don’t rock the boat.

  2. Makes sense. If better support structures were in place to allow women to have a meaningful career AND have children at a younger age this wouldn’t be happening. But then again, nobody on their deathbed has ever said they would have liked to have spent more time at the office.

    Autism Rates Much Higher in Children with Older Moms

    A 40-year-old woman’s risk of having a child later diagnosed with autism was 50 percent greater than that of a woman between 25 and 29 years old, new research finds.

    The age of fathers did not factor in as significantly. Advanced paternal age is associated with elevated autism risk only when the father is older and the mother is under 30, the study found. [When the father is over 30, or over 80?]

    The results, from an exhaustive study of all births in California during the 1990s by UC Davis Health System researchers, are published online today in the February issue of the journal Autism Research.

    The study found that the incremental risk of having a child with autism increased by 18 percent — nearly one fifth — for every five-year increase in the mother’s age.

    The study may help answer questions surrounding why autism rates have risen in recent decades. Some had blamed vaccinations geared to fending off other, unrelated diseases, but studies have not supported that line of thinking. Meanwhile, more and more women are having babies later in life.

    Advanced parental age was already a known risk factor for having a child with autism. However, previous research has shown contradictory results regarding whether it is the mother, the father or both who contribute most to the increased risk of autism. For example, one study reported that fathers over 40 were six times more likely than fathers under 30 to have a child with autism. [Not such a good idea to marry a sugar daddy after all.]

    “This study challenges a current theory in autism epidemiology that identifies the father’s age as a key factor in increasing the risk of having a child with autism,” said Janie Shelton, the study’s lead author and a doctoral student in the UC Davis Department of Public Health Sciences. “It shows that while maternal age consistently increases the risk of autism, the father’s age only contributes an increased risk when the father is older and the mother is under 30 years old. Among mothers over 30, increases in the father’s age do not appear to further increase the risk of autism.” [So stop breeding after age 30.]

    Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder of deficits in social skills and communication, as well as repetitive and restricted behaviors, with onset occurring prior to age 3, the researchers explain in a statement. Abnormal brain development, probably beginning in the womb, is known to be fundamental to the behaviors that characterize autism. Current estimates place the incidence of autism at between 1 in 100 and 1 in 110 children in the United States. [That is friggen high!]

    During the 1990s, the number of California women over 40 giving birth increased by more than 300 percent. But only about 5 percent of the 600-percent increase in the number of autism cases in the state can be attributed to women waiting longer to have children, the study suggests.

    To conduct their investigation, the researchers obtained the electronic records for all births in California between Jan. 1, 1990 and Dec. 31, 1999. The records incorporated detailed demographic information, including the ages of both parents. To identify which children would develop autism, the researchers obtained electronic records identifying children born during the study period who later received an autism diagnosis from state Department of Developmental Services. In this study autism was defined as a diagnosis of full-syndrome autism at a California Regional Center.

    The researchers also excluded a small number of births where demographic information about parents, such as their ages and levels of education, was not available. Instances of multiple births were analyzed separately. The exclusions brought the total size of the study sample to approximately 4.9 million births and 12,159 cases of autism.

    For older mothers, the step-wise progression in the risk of having a child who later would be diagnosed with autism was apparent among every age group of fathers. When the father was older and the mother was younger — under 30 — the child’s risk for developing autism also was elevated. For example, among births to mothers under 25, children fathered by a man over 40 were twice as likely to develop autism as those whose father was between 25 and 29. Among mothers over 30, the increased risk associated with older fathers dissipated, the study found.

    Because of the large study size, the researchers were able to show how risk for autism was affected by each parent’s age by holding one parent’s age constant and then comparing autism incidence across the age of the other parent across five-year increments. The subtle interaction of how each parent’s age affects the risk of autism then became quantifiable even when it was reliant on the other parent’s age. This methodology is more efficacious and requires fewer assumptions than the mathematical modeling used by earlier studies, the researchers said.

    The researchers note that understanding the relationship between increased parental age and autism risk is critical to understanding its biological causes. Earlier studies have observed that advanced maternal age is a risk factor for a variety of other birth-related conditions, including infertility, early fetal loss, low birth-weight, chromosomal aberrations and congenital anomalies.

    Irva Hertz-Picciotto, professor of public health sciences, a researcher at the UC Davis MIND Institute and the study’s senior author, said the reason that having an older parent places a child at risk for autism is not known.

    “We still need to figure out what it is about older parents that puts their children at greater risk for autism and other adverse outcomes, so that we can begin to design interventions,” Hertz-Picciotto said.

    One possible clue comes from a 2008 UC Davis study that found some mothers of children with autism had antibodies to fetal brain protein, while none of the mothers of typical children did. Advancing age has been associated with an increase in autoantibody production. Further work investigating advancing age in such findings may be useful, the study authors said. They added that some persistent environmental chemicals accumulate in the body and also may have a role to play in autism, possibly contributing to the apparent effect of parental age.

    The study also suggests that epigenetic changes (changes in how genes express themselves) over time “may enable an older parent to transfer a multitude of molecular functional alterations to a child … thus epigenetics may be involved in the risks contributed by advancing parental age as a result of changes induced by stresses from environmental chemicals, co-morbidity or assistive reproductive therapy.”

  3. Marijuana Use During Pregnancy Affects Baby’s Brain

    Using marijuana during pregnancy could affect a baby’s brain development by interfering with how brain cells are wired, a new study in mice and human tissue suggests.

    Researchers studied marijuana’s effects on mice and brain tissue from human fetuses, and found that the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, interferes with the formation of connections between nerve cells in the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain responsible for higher thinking skills and forming memories.

    “Our advice is that [pregnant] mothers should avoid marijuana,”said neuroscientist Tibor Harkany of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, and the Medical University of Vienna, in Austria, who led a study detailed today (Jan. 27) in the EMBO Journal. [11 Facts Every Parent Should Know About Their Baby’s Brain]

    Harkany added that the effects of prenatal marijuana exposure could even last into adulthood. The drug could have direct effects, or it could sensitize the brain to future drug exposure or neuropsychiatric illnesses.

    Pot during pregnancy

    Previous studies have found that exposure to marijuana during pregnancy can increase a child’s risk of having cognitive deficits or psychiatric disorders.

    While it is not exactly clear how marijuana may affect the fetal brain at a molecular level, it seems the brain may be particularly sensitive to THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) during early development, when neurons are forming critical connections. Any drug that interferes with this development could be detrimental to the child, Harkany said.

    In the study, Harkany and his colleagues tested marijuana’s effects in three ways: They grew brain cells from mice in the presence of THC, they injected pregnant mice with THC, and they studied the brains of electively aborted human fetuses whose mothers had used marijuana during pregnancy.

    The researchers identified a specific protein in nerve cells, called Superior Cervical Ganglion 10 (SCG10), which is essential for normal brain wiring. They found lower levels of this protein in the brains of both human and mouse fetuses exposed to THC compared with individuals who weren’t exposed to THC, suggesting that marijuana exposure has a specific effect on the developing brain.

    Marijuana and brain development

    “Prenatal cannabis disrupts synapses [nerve connections] critical for higher order executive and cognitive function,” study researcher Yasmin Hurd, a neuroscientist at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, told LiveScience in an email.

    An increasing number of women of childbearing age are using marijuana, and this group should be made aware of the potential impact on the brain development of their children, she said.

    Harkany added that pregnant women should avoid using marijuana use for medical purposes.

    Previous long-term studies have shown that children exposed to marijuana in the womb may have an increased risk of showing cognitive effects, seeking out drugs, or having attention deficit disorder, anxiety or depression, according to the study.

    Harkany and his colleagues didn’t study the effects of marijuana use prior to pregnancy, but he said the drug is cleared from the body in a period of days, not months, and using it prior to conception is more likely to affect the likelihood of becoming pregnant than the fetus itself. [Ha ha!]

    So far, Harkany said, no studies have compared the effect of marijuana to that of other drugs, such as alcohol, on fetal brain development.

  4. Secretive sect, referred to as the ‘Jewish Taliban,’ flees Quebec for Ontario amid child neglect investigation

    MONTREAL – When child-protection workers arrived Monday to check on children in a cult-like Jewish community in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., the streets were deserted and nobody answered the doors.

    Neighbours informed them that three buses had arrived in the middle of the night. With some families facing court dates this week under Quebec’s Youth Protection Act, almost the entire community — including all of the 120 children — had abruptly decamped for Chatham, Ont.

    “For sure we are worried by the fact that they fled Quebec to go to Ontario,” Denis Baraby, director of youth protection for the Laurentians region, said Friday. His workers have been actively involved in the community since August, trying to help children suffering from poor hygiene, inadequate housing and unsatisfactory schooling.

    “We gathered evidence that there was important child neglect within the community and there was also psychological violence made toward the children in many ways,” Mr. Baraby said. “The basic needs of the children were not necessarily well provided for.”

    Last month, six children were removed from the community after their father, who had abandoned the sect to move to Israel, reported they were suffering neglect.

    Mr. Baraby said he has shared all of his files, including photos of many of the children, with Chatham-Kent Children’s Services, which has begun its own investigation. The families are staying at a motel, but a representative said they intend to settle in the region.

    Lev Tahor leader Shlomo Helbrans (also known as Elbarnes) was convicted in 1994 of kidnapping a teenaged boy who had been brought to his Brooklyn yeshiva for bar mitzvah instruction. In 2000, he was deported to Israel after serving his prison sentence. A year later he arrived in Sainte-Agathe on a temporary visa and soon his followers joined him.

    In Israel, critics refer to Lev Tahor — which means Pure Heart — as the Jewish Taliban because women wear burqa-like robes and are confined to household tasks. Sainte-Agathe Mayor Denis Chalifoux said the women from the community never ventured downtown to the shops.

    In 2004, Mr. Helbrans was granted refugee status in Canada on the grounds that he would face persecution in Israel for his anti-Zionist views. The federal Minister of Citizenship appealed but lost. The judge in that case noted that Mr. Helbrans teaches that the existence of Israel is an insult to the Bible, that Israel should cease to exist and that Jews must accept Arab domination of the land.

    In Canada, the sect managed to remain mostly below the radar until 2011 when authorities intercepted two teenaged girls sent from Israel to join Lev Tahor. An uncle in Israel had obtained a court order to have the girls returned based on fears they would be harmed by Lev Tahor and forced to marry.

    Mr. Baraby said his office began paying closer attention to the group after that incident. But it was a specific complaint channeled through a Jewish community social services agency in Montreal this year that prompted intervention in August.

    The investigation revealed that children were suffering from poor dental health and skin problems. They were not bathing on a regular basis. They were not being schooled according to any Canadian curriculum and only spoke Yiddish and Hebrew. Concerns about forced marriages and teen pregnancies were passed along to provincial police, Mr. Baraby said.

    He said community members were cooperating and slow progress was being made, but three families representing 14 children were facing court hearings this week. He said the hearings were not to remove the children from custody but to ensure continued child-protection access.

    The mass departure came as a surprise, he said. During visits last week, his workers saw no signs of an imminent move.

    Reached by phone in Chatham, Lev Tahor director Mayer Rosner denied that his group had fled to avoid child-protection authorities. He said they left in the middle of the night so it would be easier for the children to sleep on the long journey.

    The real sticking point, he said, was schooling. “To learn the full curriculum in Quebec exactly like in the public school is a problem for religious people,” he said. He said parents were co-operating with youth protection and making progress.

    In Ontario, he said, “they are respecting freedom of religion,” and he is confident his community’s schooling system will be accepted. “We didn’t run away,” he said. “Three or four months ago we checked out a property in Chatham, because we were planning to leave anyway.” He denied that girls in Lev Tahor are forced into marriage.

    David Ouellette, public affairs director at the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs in Montreal, said Jewish community services had been active in exposing concerns in Lev Tahor. “They are a sect,” he said. “They are not reflective of Judaic values or any stream of Judaism. They are completely out of the norm.”

  5. Short of money? Not getting any respect from your boss? Are you a frustrated neighbourhood bully? Boost your bank balance and your ego by setting up a cult right in your own backyard.

    Characteristics Associated with Cultic Groups

    Janja Lalich, Ph.D. & Michael D. Langone, Ph.D.

    Concerted efforts at influence and control lie at the core of cultic groups, programs, and relationships. Many members, former members, and supporters of cults are not fully aware of the extent to which members may have been manipulated, exploited, even abused. The following list of social-structural, social-psychological, and interpersonal behavioral patterns commonly found in cultic environments may be helpful in assessing a particular group or relationship.

    Compare these patterns to the situation you were in (or in which you, a family member, or friend is currently involved). This list may help you determine if there is cause for concern. Bear in mind that this list is not meant to be a “cult scale” or a definitive checklist to determine if a specific group is a cult. This is not so much a diagnostic instrument as it is an analytical tool.

    ‪ The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.

    ‪ Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.
    ‪ Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).

    ‪ The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry—or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).

    ‪ The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).

    ‪ The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.

    ‪ The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).

    ‪ The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members’ participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).

    ‪ The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt iin order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.

    ‪ Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.

    ‪ The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.

    ‪ The group is preoccupied with making money.

    ‪ Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.

    ‪ Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.

    ‪ The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.

  6. Oz kids ‘sodomised, punched’
    AFP | 29 January, 2014 00:37

    Children were sodomised with a garden hose, locked in outdoor cages and savagely beaten by Salvation Army majors in graphic cases of abuse detailed yesterday to an Australian inquiry.

    A royal commission into child sexual abuse in Australia began hearing evidence into allegations of abuse at four Salvation Army homes for children between 1966 and 1977, that counsel assisting the inquiry, Simeon Beckett, warned would be “shocking to many”.

    “The abuse that is to be detailed is likely to be disturbing and at the severe end of sexual abuse,” he said in his opening address.

    The commission was established by former prime minister Julia Gillard in response to a series of child sex abuse scandals involving paedophile priests

    Beckett said at the homes run by the Salvation Army, “boys were frequently punched by the officers with closed fists, thrown on the ground or up against a wall” or caned and whipped with straps until they bled.

    “One boy had his shoulder dislocated by an officer during a punishment which involved hitting his testicles with a leather strap.”

    Beckett said corporal punishment and sexual abuse were frequent. One boy was punished after running away by having a “hose (inserted) into his anus” and “was placed in a cage on the verandah for a week” after complaining that another boy was abusing him.

    “When he was released from the cage he was forcibly sodomised by [a] major,” Beckett said.

    Other boys had detergent forcibly poured down their throats, were burned with cigarettes, or were forced to eat their own vomit.

It’s only the Hollywood celebs who enjoy life. Everytime I phone somebody they either are very busy or they don’t even pick their phones up. If they tell me that they are busy are they complaining or telling me to fuck – off? The way people go on I surely think it’s just not me who’s life sucks, but theirs also. Just imagine there where only a million people in the world instead of 7billion. Just think of all the freedom. I still say yes to uthenasia. What’s there to lose? Life is fucked – up!

  8. This from a great scientist ……

    Adriaan let wel ……..

    Let’s go over this again so we can make sure that reliving is important in the therapy for all kinds of neuroses. Neurosis means that there is an early traumatic input that alters function and behavior; not one or the other but both. That is, there is pain and denial of need that overwhelms normal functioning and causes a diversion. We are no longer normal; things go wrong neurologically, biochemically and behaviorally. And of course to cure we need to normalize the whole system, not just behavior or biochemistry.

    That in a tiny nutshell is the story of neurosis. We are no longer ourselves; we are re-routed in function. To get back to ourselves we have to re-establish function in every aspect. Not just behavior.

    And when we are diverted and rerouted, there are marks that leave their traces; epigenetic marks. For example, if we are loved and hugged and touched a lot there are changes in the brain where methylation patterns are changed. The function of the gene is changed and how we then behave is diverted. The brain has “borrowed” part of the methyl group and produced alterations in how genes are expressed or repressed; shut down or opened up. And this changes us in profound ways. Our personality becomes different; we can be more open or closed off; more depressed or anxious depending on what genes do what. But it is not genetic; it is epigenetic, how life impacts us. How experience changes us. It is not just in the genes; it is in experience. Don’t go looking at the genes alone; it is not there. They are the result of experience, called epigenetics.

    Now those marks or traces are embedded and can follow us throughout life. They form the substrate on how further experience impacts us. So with lots of love we have a different system, than with a deficit amount of love. And a different brain. And a different focus and attention span. All this right after birth. And it can spell a chronically aggressive or passive baby and child. The difference between a heavily allergic child who spends her life in emergency rooms, and a normal child. Above all, it sets the stage for a child who does well in school and another who fails. You mean all this from events in life before birth? Exactly. Love means altering those immune cells and making them stronger. No love means the opposite.

    OK so now we have those marks, methylation which foretells of a life to come and how it will be lived. How do we change all that? We need to revisit those early experiences, those without words, go back and redo them. Change history and their traces. We need to undo the damage and that means slowly demethylizing. One experience at a time; or one experience over many times. We need to find how the system was detoured and put it back on track, literally. This happened because pain installed itself and forced change. A mother who was on coffee or who was constantly on tranquilizers changes the baby’s system. He cannot slow down because the anxious carrying mother has caused a more speedy system in her offspring. And this can be measured; the amount of methylation can be observed and changed. That is meaningful progress. It informs us about altering neuroses. And when allergies disappear we have supporting data. And when sexual deviation goes away we have even more key data. And above all, when the telomeres lengthen and we live longer that is critical information. Neurosis, in short, is a global affair, not just one behavior or one symptom.

    But isn’t this what medicine today is about? Lowering blood pressure, giving allergy medication. Restructuring behavior. It is called “whack-a-mole.” Every time a symptom shows up they just whack it back, and the patient remains sick and neurotic.

    And they don’t ask where it all ever came from? No, they will call it a “brain disease”. Experience takes a back seat as they slither down into the depths and minutia of the brain seeking answers that do not exist there and never will.

    But we are the dealers in experience because we have seen what experience does to us, especially very early pre-verbal experience. If one sees one Primal one knows for all time how crucial experience is in the scheme of things. It is rarely a brain disease; that is concocted by those who fiddle around in neurons and synapses and do not see the brain reacting to experience. If we leave out experience we are bereft of what can give us answers. We see only the end result and miss half of the puzzle. It is like looking at diabetics and never know what they eat. If we leave out the first three years in an orphanage can you wonder that we can never know what the matter is. Thinking it is a brain disease is the result of another more serious disease: solipsism. Arthur Janov

  9. FANTASTIC NEWS – PLEASE FORWARD.

    There is actually a medical drug out there that very few people know about, even doctors, and the few doctors that are prescribing it, are having such wonderful and incredible results with it for such a wide range of diseases, it is like a miracle.

    This drug is very cheap, has no side effects at all, and uses an active ingredient of only .5mg to 4.5mg. It is phenomenal, and it also works on animals. Only problem is, less than ten doctors in SA know about it, and I guess zero veterinarians.

    Incredibly, no person or business on earth can lay any claims to it, neither is
    anyone going to get rich from it, because not a single person or any Big
    Pharma owns it. Amazing results are being seen for the majority of people on it, who suffer from mild ills all the way to terminally ill cancer patients.

    Believe it or not, there is actually a pharmacy in Gauteng near Roodepoort that imports and dispenses it. I was amazed to discover that, because it took me such a long time searching for it here in SA. It can be obtained from them with a prescription from a doctor. I found a doctor who is happy to prescribe it. You are going to be totally blown away . One can spend hours watching the incredible videos of honest and sincere doctors and patients singing the praises of this medicine.
    History:
    Thirty years ago exactly, a pharmaceutical co. in the USA put a drug on the market called NALTREXONE. It was intended for drug and alcohol addicts using heroin, coke, marijuana, alcohol, etc. , to be given in doses of 50mg orally, or implanted, or intravenously. It wasn’t very successful. Two doctors decided to play around with the doses, giving higher and lesser doses to patients. Those who were on lesser doses started reporting back improvements with other diseases they had. Eventually the two doctors went down to as little as .5mg active ingredient, and found that it could be miraculous even at that dosage.

    They approached a neurologist in New York to continue the process, a doctor Bihari. He found that people with an extremely wide range of ills were responding to the miracles of this drug. It became known as LOW DOSE NALTREXONE, or simply LDN. It works because the dosage is so low.
    It wouldn’t otherwise. The original patent rights for NALTREXONE has long collapsed, and now LDN is “free-for-all” drug. No licencing or patenting is possible by anyone.

    Here is a link to the homepage, run by a doctor and his son who are not in any way affiliated with any business that produces LDN, and some videos

    Nobody is making millions out of LDN, and no-one should be. It is considered a peoples’ medicine

    • I know that naltrexone is prescribed for reducing alcohol cravings but some patients make all kinds of excuses for not taking it – too expensive, for one, while they can down an expensive bottle of Glenmorangie without bothering about the price. I think drunks drink because they like getting drunk and out of control. The addiction is only partly physical. You can spot a dry drunk a mile off.

    • What a load of horse manure,blaming what happens from six weeks in the womb for human neurosis. Whether the child is delivered naturally or by Caesarean section, the damage has already been done, and it’s all the mother’s fault, for not protecting herself from danger, avoiding stress, for drinking coffee, for drinking a glass of wine. With this kind of thinking we should stop producing children the time honoured way and have them manufactured in biochemical laboratories. This might even turn out to be a good idea and would take a lot of strain off women.

      We are what we are because we were not designed perfectly from the start, that is, before conception, because of the faulty genes we have inherited. Our knees are too weak for our bodies so they wear out fast. We still have a redundant appendix and a residual tail. Because of faulty ongoing development our prefrontal cortex is too small in relation to the rest of our brain compared to other primates. So we become bipolar, or sociopaths, or depressives. If we were Ford Fiats, never mind Land Rovers, we would all be recalled by the factory. We are but dinky toys.

    Dan, om verdere PYN te vermy, nadat ons gebore is, moet ons behandel word op sekere maniere wat miljoene jare gelede al vooruit bepaal is deur evolusie, nl:

    Ons moet “bond” met ons ma onmiddelik na geboorte …….
    Ons moet liefs geborsvoed word …..
    Die gebborte moet liefs nie ‘n keisersnee wees nie …….

    Ons moet opgetel word en vasgehou word as ons as babas begin huil. Ons moet huil in die ma of pa se arms, nie “geshush” word nie en daar moet nie gepraat word nie. M.a.w. ons moet toegelaat word om ons PYN uit te huil.

    As jong kinders moet ons kan huil, kwaad word, skreeu, spring, hardloop, vloek, presies se wat ons voel sonder nadelige nagevolge. Ons moet ons idees en gedagtes en gevoelens en emosies totaal en tenvolle kan uitspreek teenoor enigiemand, hetsy ma of pa of oom of tannie of wie ookal.

    Ons moet NOOIT fisies aangerand word nie !!! (Soos in pakslae, )

    Ons ouers moet weet dat ons nie nodig het om gegiet te word in een of ander vorm nie. Ons moet net onsself kan wees. ***Jy “maak” nie ‘n kind groot nie.
    Sy groei vanself en word groot met haar eie karakter en persoonlikheid.

    Daar moet nie kak in die kind se kop ingedruk word soos bv. godsdiens, heretjies, jesussies en ander kak nie.

    Daar moet ontsaglik baie opregte liefde wees !!!

    As al hierdie evolusionere voorskrifte nie uitgevoer word nie, dan is daar PYN wat die kind verander. So ‘n kind of volwassene word dan later neuroties.
    Jy kan dit duidelik sien in jong kinders wat mishadel was, of wie se behoeftes nie vervul was nie.

    Nouja, Dr. Arthur Janov vertel ons dat die ENIGSTE manier om ontslae te raak van hierdie PYNE wat nou hier in ons weses vassit, is om terug te gaan en die gevoelens en emosies te herleef. Niks ander gaan help nie. Nie Freud nie, of hipnose nie, of medisyne of enigeen van al die honderde dinge wat oor die eeue heen probeer is nie.

    Godsdiens is juis ‘n universele poging wat mense gebruik om te ontsnap van al die lyding. Dis ‘n “act-out”, of kruk, of “coping mechanism” of “comforter”. Dis alles pyndoders, net soos Grandpa.

    Arthur Janov het 16 boeke geskryf hieroor, sedert 1965. Lees gerus enigeen van sy boeke, of google Dr. Arthur Janov. Ignoree al die kak wat sekere baie siek mense gepos het i.v.m. sy werke. Laat jou hart jou oortuig.

  12. Net terloops, wat fisiese kwale betref, is daar nou ‘n wonderlike middel op die mark, met die naam Low Dose Naltrexone. Google dit gerus. Dit kan ook van groot hulp wees met erge “Organiese depressie”

  13. Schmoly,
    If you can allow yourself to read and study further, past what you have learnt perhaps ten or twenty years ago, you will find that many researchers who are at the forefront of “genetics”, are actually the ones who discovered that it is NOT genetics – although that plays a small role – but indeed what is termed epigenetics, meaning “after genetics” – i.e six weeks later -that affects us seriously in the womb, by factors such as whether the mother is neurotic herself, anxious, depressed, worried, drinks alcohol or lots of coffee, etc.

    I do respect your knowledge and obvious intelligence, because I have read many of your postings, but please educate yourself on the subject matter at hand before you make any comments.

    Arthur Janov, as a serious scientific researcher, cites all these studies when he discusses epigenetics, and you can read them yourself: …….

    The Inheritance of Acquired Characteristics

    Oh dear, that used to be such a dirty word. The idea of it was roundly rejected for a hundred years, and then, lo and behold it is now pure science. What happened? For one thing, the scientific method, slow as it is. For another, consciousness has developed, stripping us of old canards.

    Anent this point, made in several journals and written about in New Scientist (7 Dec. 2013) (See http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22029462.700-fear-of-a-smell-can-be-passed-down-several-generations.html#.UsVZg2RdVWI), there is mounting evidence that parental effects dip down into the newborn impregnating her with parental history. So when we ask, “Why is she that way?” We have a better idea. She is that way due to genetics and above all, what life experience has done to those genes. For example, “Why does she eat so much?” We know that it is not current culture that is the sole cause; it could also be because the mother was indulgent and ate compulsively. It turns out that babies learn some food preferences while living in the womb. And some of it is pretty well set before the age of two. While in the womb the baby is learning about his world and what to expect from it; hence lots of food is to be expected from a mother who indulges.

    There is evidence now that diet can alter gene expression. If you love sweets and cannot resist, it could be due to womb-life. In other words, the mother’s compulsion becomes your destiny. This can explain a good percentage of obesity in children. Bad eating habits begin in the womb as do so many other compulsions. More evidence is piling up to show how this early start can predict the early onset of disease and a shortened lifespan. (See the work of Keith Godfrey, Univ. Of Southampton (See http://www.southampton.ac.uk/medicine/research/themes/epigenetics.page). And also New Scientist, 7 December, 2013). The fetus is not only aware of certain tastes and smells in the mother while she is carrying, but those memories can last a lifetime, and can affect so much of our interests later on. Mothers ingesting carrot juice during pregnancy had children who preferred it.

    It is not just diet, that is the obvious one, but think about fear; it can be passed down, as well. So are we born fearful? Could be. We can be jumpy, nervous and erratic, all due to epigenetics. Mice who associated a certain smell with an electric jolt became fearful in the presence of that smell. It seems so early as to be genetic, but it is more likely to be epigenetic, the condition of the mother (and father) while carrying. This should teach us something about memory; for memories while being carried can last decades and drive and/or channel behavior. We do not simply “grow out of it.”

    In fact, premature babies who were hugged and caressed a lot went home earlier than those babies not touched as much. Those early kisses count a lot and help shape personality, a loving and warm person versus a stand-offish one. A nervous mother leaves a predisposition to fear in the offspring, just as a depressed mother leaves a base of depression in her baby. Whether it becomes overt depends on later events and traumas. I personally believe that lots of love and healthy living in the very young child can abate these deleterious effects. This is especially true for those babies who were taken from institutions. They are greatly in need of love and reassurance early on. If they don’t get it, it can be somewhat irreversible; that is, there may be a point where love can no longer make a great difference. The damage is done and it is pretty well fixed. This is the research we will embark on in the near future. Is there a point in time when love cannot reverse previous damage? When is that point?

    The evidence is becoming clear, ever since I posited early life trauma, even in the womb, almost fifty years ago. At that time, I had to be convinced of it through the experience of my patients. It became irrefutable. But I understood how hard it was to convince others of its importance, especially those in psychology and psychiatry.

    I know that I had a tendency to be fearful since gestation and birth so that a harsh tone from my father just withered me and forced me to obey without question. I became obedient to demands, gave in so that the anger will stop. I had a “couche” of terror below due to a psychotic mother. It was all compounded into an unaggressive child. Add that to almost never having any needs filled and you get the picture of a child who knows nothing of his needs or his feelings, just drifting along in life, complaisant and undemanding. That is no way to be, believe me.

    Here is a link to the homepage of LDN. Open it and a whole new world will
    open up for you. http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.com

    Also, here is a link to a video of an LDN conference where several doctors
    sang the praises of LDN as a miracle drug. (The first thirty seconds has some bad sound, but then it improves)
