Good mental nutrition is crucial for us all and we know that like myself many of you receive so much inspirational data from various channels on the internet. So, before we offer insights on our Health, Environment and more from various sources, we just want to mention the beautiful Womankind Magazine, which is also jam packed with fascinating insights that take our time to absorb. I particularly loved the one dedicated to Tibet and am slowly reading my way through all their back issues – so great to support what they are doing. Click here for more.

  • Then of course there is  Gaia TV, another great channel to subscribe to and support! Click here for a list of their topics. As many of you know our Darkroom Retreat is a place of amazing contact with our Light Being friends and so for me recently it has been interesting to tune in to some of the information that Corey Goode has been sharing on various programs on Gaia TV.
  • I particularly enjoyed this interview – “Unraveling Hidden Extraterrestrial Agendas with Corey Goode – Beyond Belief with George Nooryas it covers many topics of interest including the energies Earth is being bombarded with plus free energy systems, eliminating all disease and so much more.

 A few views on maintaining health and even aging ….

  • What makes our bodies age … our skin wrinkle, our hair turn white, our immune systems weaken? Biologist Elizabeth Blackburn shares a Nobel Prize for her work finding out the answer, with the discovery of telomerase: an enzyme that replenishes the caps at the end of chromosomes, which break down when cells divide. Learn more about Blackburn’s groundbreaking research — including how we might have more control over aging than we think. Elizabeth Blackburn won a Nobel Prize for her pioneering work on telomeres and telomerase, which may play central roles in how we age. She is president of the Salk Institute and author of the New York Times Best Seller, “The Telomere Effect.” To watch click here.
  • 5 ways to slow the aging process – The process of biological aging is not the result of any one thing, but rather the accumulation of several things, many of them still being studied by scientists. Some theories with the most scientific evidence behind them include the roles of oxidative stress from free radicals, the process of glycation (sugar molecules bonding to proteins in your blood), telomere shortening, and the effect of inflammation. Your best defense is working to modulate as many of these factors as you can, and it’s not as difficult as you might think to get measurable results. To read more click here.

  • More than 40 million people worldwide suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is expected to increase drastically in the coming years. But no real progress has been made in the fight against the disease since its classification more than 100 years ago. Scientist Samuel Cohen shares a new breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research from his lab as well as a message of hope. “Alzheimer’s is a disease,” Cohen says, “and we can cure it.” Click to watch his insights.

  • From New Scientist Magazine … On Plastics …  Since the introduction of mass-produced plastics in the early 20th century, humanity has produced an estimated 8300 million tonnes of the stuff. Around three-quarters has been thrown away, and 80 per cent of that has drifted into the environment or gone into landfill. Eight million tonnes a year end up in the ocean. From bag bans to bacterial mulchers, many solutions are touted. Find out which work – and which don’t – in our definitive guide. Click to read.
  • Great Ideas by Naoki Ishii – We all share one planet — we breathe the same air, drink the same water and depend on the same oceans, forests and biodiversity. Economist Naoko Ishii is on a mission to protect these shared resources, known as the global commons, that are vital for our survival. In an eye-opening talk about the wellness of the planet, Ishii outlines four economic systems we need to change to safeguard the global commons, making the case for a new kind of social contract with the earth.

  • Long-Term Study of Heart Rate Variability Responses to Changes in the Solar and Geomagnetic Environment – This long-term study examined relationships between solar and magnetic factors and the time course and lags of autonomic nervous system (ANS) responses to changes in solar and geomagnetic activity. Heart rate variability (HRV) was recorded for 72 consecutive hours each week over a five-month period in 16 participants in order to examine ANS responses during normal background environmental periods… The findings support the hypothesis that energetic environmental phenomena affect psychophysical processes that can affect people in different ways depending on their sensitivity, health status and capacity for self-regulation.
