listed in editorial, originally published in issue 281 - September 2022

Positive Health PH Online September Issue 281 is published live 8 Sept. Climate change catastrophes – floods of biblical apocalyptic proportions have afflicted Pakistan, while droughts across Europe lay waste to essential crops including grains and olive oil. A (very) few shipments of grains are beginning to arrive at famine-endangered Africa. The UK has been moving languorously – tortoise-like – toward a resolution in the Tory Leadership Contest to select a new UK Prime Minister to replace Boris Johnson.  The war in Ukraine carries on with inspectors attempting to reach the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine. What is good to tell?

Here are several authoritative sites with a non-mainstream take on the health news:

John Dee’s Almanac –  Testing… Testing… (part 1).  The relationship between viral tests and COVID ‘cases’;

Alliance for Natural Health International –  Covid News Unwrapped…;

Dr Sircus – A Call to Medical Arms;

Spot Leukaemia - Non-existent awareness of leukaemia symptoms “extremely worrying”.

PH Online September Issue 281 published an eclectic yet comprehensive collection of authoritative editorial features encompassing wide clinical and treatment approaches covering many aspects of Mind / Body / Spirit, including Editorial Features, Letters to the Editor, Research Updates and Short Features and Brief Takes.

The following articles describe the philosophical, environmental and spiritual aspects in our search for so-called progress:

Nature, Microbes & Us

Characteristics of Wisdom

High Functioning Autism in the Workplace

Controversy in Optimism v. Pessimism

The following features discusses tips and advice to manage stress and achieve anti-ageing:

Demystifying and Tackling Stress

NEEM and Anti-Ageing

The following editorial pays a fulsome tribute to the work of the late Professor Peter Gariaev:

Wave Genetics as Developed by the late Professor Peter Gariaev

“Few scientists have contributed so much to a single field as Professor Peter Gariaev PhD has done to revolutionize our understanding of DNA. He is maybe best known for his discovery in 1984 of the Phantom DNA effect whereby an electromagnetic trace is still detectable in water after the DNA has been removed from the solution. His discoveries and theories that he developed into the practical treatment system known as Wave Genetics is the culmination of his understanding and the combination of Quantum biophysics with clinical medicine. His unexpected passing (17.11.2020), only a few weeks after receiving his much-deserved Nobel Prize nomination must surely have been the only reason he didn’t receive the highest institutional accolade for his work.”

This following article – the cover feature – looks at how the damage caused by following fashion can be quite scary:

Soften The Blow of Killer Heels

“Taking a look at the damage caused by the following fashion can be quite scary. Examples range from broken ribs and damaged organs from wearing tight corsets to the voluntary removal of ribs to make the waist look smaller. These actions can seriously impact the function of internal organs and circulation.

“Chinese foot binding stunted the growth of little girls' feet, to make them fashionably small and take small walking steps. Apparently, the fashion of curved, very small feet, was desired by the Emperor at the time and so the foot binding process was created to achieve this.  The results were irreversible foot deformity and related consequences.  Considering the negative impact on energetic points, meridian ends/beginnings and circulation constriction, would this fashion be classified as ritual abuse?  Thankfully this was banned early in the 1900s so why mention it in 2022?

“Wearing high heels does not cause such extensive damage as foot binding but it does, nevertheless, put the feet, legs and spine in an unbalanced position causing massive pressure on the ball of the foot, Achilles tendon and calf muscles.  In shifting overall weight and centre of gravity, compensatory adjustment of the feet, ankles, knees, hips, spine, head, and muscles, can cause a massive energy sap, hormone disruption cascade, mood swings and immune depression.”

The following editorial features describe treatments and approaches in Physiology, Backache and Yoga:

The Nasopharynx

C1 and C2 Vertebrae Misalignment Symptoms

How Yoga Can Help Reduce Stress

The Letters to the Editors Issue 280 discuss highly topical subjects including metastatic breast cancer, Non-COVID-19 Respiratory Infections, 1,2-Dichloropropane-Induced Cancer in the Printing Industry, Why 15% of Brits Have Never had Covid, and Research Updates include Research in the following subjects:  cancer, CFS-ME-Covid, essential fatty acids, homeopathy, immune function, infertility, macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis, sleep.

I commend this challenging and erudite September Issue 281 for your educational and clinical progression; by the time we publish PH Online Issue 281 live we will finally discover who is the new UK Prime Minister.
