By ICIM Nashville speaker William Shaw, PhD:
One of the puzzling aspects of autism is the marked increase in the incidence of autism that began in the United States in the early 1980s and has appeared to increase continuously since then. The marked increases in the incidences of autism, asthma and attention deficit disorder in the United States coincide with the replacement of aspirin by acetaminophen in the 1980s. The characteristic loss of Purkinje cells in the brains of people with autism is consistent with depletion of brain glutathione due to excess acetaminophen usage, which leads to premature brain Purkinje cell death.

Solutions for the dysfunctional interplay of immunology and neurophysics in autistic syndromes
It turns out the brain cannot perform its many complex tasks without a high degree of synchronous electrical activity. Very much like computer circuitry – asynchronous brain activity uses too much energy to be efficient. That means those areas of the brain demand more oxygen and glucose, which results in excessive production of oxidative stress and mitochondrial overload. It also means they don’t share data effectively with other brain centers.

Toxicity in built spaces — Preparing for a Nashville lecture coming soon from Matthew Van Olm, MD and Andy Chappell-Dick, Build/Design:
Are toxic chemicals in building materials making us sick?
The Huffington Post
The Bullitt Center's composting toilets need less than a cup of captured rainwater to flush. Its rooftop solar panels keep the six-story office building -- located in a notoriously not-so-sunny city — contributing to, rather than tapping from, the local electricity grid. But there's another bragging right that has been widely overlooked since the center's opening on Earth Day this April: More than 360 commonly used and potentially toxic elements and compounds were kept out of its construction, from its walls and wires to its pipes and paints.
EFT research pages
Emotional Freedom Techniques
These EFT research pages summarize the many studies of EFT published in peer-reviewed professional journals. They begin with an overview of the American Psychological Association definition of "empirically validated treatments," then describe how EFT meets those criteria, and finally, they organize published abstracts into outcome studies, clinical reports, mechanisms papers, and review articles. From the links at the top of this page you can jump to any of these sections immediately.

Foods can help you sleep
Things to avoid to prepare you for sleep are large meals at bedtime, chocolate and alcohol. Things to help include lite bites of food — unless you have reflux — kiwis in the evening — increases serotonin — and tart cheery juice — increases melatonin. During the day, go outside for natural sunlight and some exercise and at night, sleep in a dark room with no electronics.
PCI no benefit over medical therapy in ischemic stable CAD
By Shelley Wood
A new analysis is calling into question the de facto rationale for many of the revascularization procedures taking place today, at least in patients with stable coronary artery disease. In a meta-analysis of more than 5,000 patients, PCI was no better than medical therapy in patients with documented ischemia by stress testing or fractional flow reserve.

Congressional briefing on the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
The Canary Pantry via YouTube
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny writes, "This is the Nov. 13 Congressional testimony on vaccine injuries. At 16 minutes, the asstistant AG of the state of Tennessee tells his story of the corruption within the vaccine Injury "court" system." At the end, you will learn why further hearings have been stopped and millions of vaccine injuries will never be compensated."
Healing with language: Understanding rules
Everyone has rules but we don't all have the same ones. Someone might break rules about speed limits on the highway but follow rules about seatbelt and turn-signal use. Someone else might obey speed limits and ignore rules about seatbelts and turn signals.

Is there a natural cure for bad breath?
Is there a natural cure for bad breath? It is natural to assume that bad breath — also known as halitosis — is caused by a problem in the mouth. However, for a very significant number of individuals, their bad breath is not caused by a problem with oral hygiene but is related to their digestion in general. A common and often undiagnosed cause of bad breath is toxicity in the digestive tract. This is often related to inefficient digestion and elimination of food.
European researchers link neonicotinoids to brain impairment, recommend further restrictions on use
The New York Times via Natural News
Researchers from the European Food Safety Authority recommended further restrictions on the use of neonicotinoids in the wake of new data which indicate that the class of pesticides "may affect the developing human nervous system" of children. Neonicotinoids have been linked to declining bee populations and three of them were the subject of rigorous new restrictions passed in Europe earlier this year.
