The Human Body - recommendations for further study

Post by Billy » Sun Jan 25, 2015 12:53 pm

I am shortly beginning an in-depth study into Herbology of the Western world. I will be studying with a master herbalist here in the Twin Cities area, whom herself is a student of a fairly interesting fellow by the name of Matthew Wood, whose understanding of plant healing is quite vast in scope.

I wish to couple this research with a formal study into the areas of human anatomy, physiology, bio-chemistry, and nutrition.

Does anyone here have recommendations for texts that cover these subjects in-depth? More specifically: I am seeking literature that gives both a broad overview of these subjects while at the same time delving deep into the study of the make-up of the physical human body, cellular structures, and optimal nutrition. Essentially, I am designing my own curriculum, with the end goal being that of becoming an herbalist and a healer, to teach others how to empower themselves and take their health into their own hands, and to then pass that knowledge along down the line.

I want to understand how nature heals the body, how we can take the gifts that the forest gives us and apply them to our own lives to restore balance and harmony within ourselves, towards others, between ourselves and the planet, and with the LMs.

Going a step further: Do their exist texts that examine the structures and make-up of the human body from a traditional Western perspective while at the same time implementing bio-energetic pathways into the conversation (I suppose, what TCM would call the meridians)? I want to understand the sources of bio-energy, Qi, the soul - where do they come from and how they can be applied to conventional Western concepts of the body, and how can we combine these together to assist people in healing their bodies, minds, souls? (I believe that the three are not mutually exclusive). I suppose that one might look towards the East for such literature, as Western science completely ignores such concepts. Can't find it if you're not looking for it.

Essentially, I'm turning my room into a university classroom for one :-) Many, many books have been written on the subjects of human anatomy and physiology, and I could simply pick one up and read, but since I've gotten so many superb recommendations from folks here for previous requests, I thought that I would toss out the line and see if I get any bites :-)

Ultimately: I want to have something of greater value to offer to the efforts being made here and elsewhere by pursuing a path as a healer with a deep understanding of the human body and soul, and their complexities and connections to nature and to the greater workings of the Universe.

I have the full collection of Larson's work, and I have a feeling that I am going to understand much more once I sit down with this and focus in on the material. That will come with time. But for now, I feel a pull towards studying herbology and its applications to the human form, both mental and physical, as well as the source and consciousness that connects it all together.

Hi Billy,

Sounds like a great idea, go for it! The only things I can recommend are Daniel's "Homo Sapiens Ethicus", Larson's "Beyond Space and Time", Viktor Schauberger's "Living Water" and the documentary "The Secret Life of Plants":

Enjoy reading all of Larson's material, that is indeed probably the best starting point although i'd take into consideration Bruce's recent RS2 work on the quaternion of the photon as it updates some of Larson's work and makes it fit better with observation.

All the best with the project!

I'd suggest you get a copy of Gray's Anatomy (the book, not the TV series Grey's Anatomy), which is pretty much the definitive work on human anatomy. It is helpful to get an understanding of the tools and materials available, and a general idea of how they work, before you dig into any project.

One of the first things I learned from a native American shaman was that the "textbooks" regarding health and medicine are all based on studying disease and death (pathology). If you want to study how to die, read the books. If you want to study how to live... study yourself. The shamans I've worked with have always told me that you never do anything to anyone else, that you have not experienced first hand, yourself. If you want to learn about herbs, learn how to consciously monitor your body, take the herb, and see what changes. And do them one at a time (just how you would sample foods). Then your mind and body learn what effects a particular herb has and you will know exactly what to expect when you recommend it to someone else.

Djchrismac - Thank you for the recommendations. I just finished reading 'Living Water'. Truly, we have become utterly ignorant of the ways of nature.

Bruce - No sooner had you made this comment about trying the herb to test its effects on myself than did my teacher do the very same thing - sat us down in a room and put a single drop of prickly ash tincture under our tongues to test the effects. As I wander out and gather substances from nature and use these to create my apothecary, I look forward to testing their effects on myself, and then in using these to help others.

One interesting effect took place with my 8 year old niece Willow, who assisted me in decanting a mason jar of mugwort which I had harvested in northern California. I had given a tincture bottle of this to my sister, and she had given a few drops to Willow. On that same evening, Willow had a very vibrant dream about a white horse on her great-grandmother's farm. My brother-in-law told me that his grandmother did indeed have a white horse on her farm, but that he had never told Willow about this. Thus, the memory of that horse came through from...somewhere else. I must admit that I know little about the dream realm, but I do understand that mugwort has a particularly profound effect upon the pineal gland, which itself is filled with many tiny bioluminescent micro crystals. Mugmort increases the release of melatonin from the gland, which can lead to vibrant dream states. Daniel - You had in the past referred to the pineal gland as a 'fail safe' put in place in ancient times during the process of our, ahem, 'evolution'. Can you expand upon the meaning of this?

The Function of the Pineal

The pineal is a "dead man's switch" to cut off access to psionic ability at puberty, to keep the problems that wizards and witches caused the gods from recurring.

When the body has a sufficiency of fluorine, as children do, the pineal is in the "off" position, like an open valve, allowing shen to flow through the inner sections of the brain that provide a more direct path to intuition (the physical senses in 3D time), as a survival necessity. I was a kid once, and boys in particular are basically kamikaze kids when out playing. If it wasn't for those annoying little intuitions that tell you "never go skinny dipping in a pool of piranhas," a lot of kids--particularly in the days of old--would not survive long. So they need that psionic insight to stay alive.

But, when they reach puberty, they have survived childhood and are now ready to reproduce and raise more good slaves for the gods. But if they retained that cosmic insight, it might continue to develop into full-blown psionic skills and they just might see through the veil of servitude, and challenge the gods--as did the Neanderthals and LMs (whose pineal is always open). After all, they used the same, basic genetic coding.

So, they introduced a fluorine-calcium "switch" in the pineal. When a child reaches puberty, the reproductive system generates a high demand for fluorine, weakening the "hand" that holds the dead-man switch open. If the energy flow across that switch gets too high--using too much 3D time access--the hand lets go, the switch closes and shorts out the bioenergy. The negatively-charged fluorine on the switch attracts positively charged calcium, creating calcium fluoride (fluorite), an insoluble solid that cannot be dissolved by the bloodstream, that locks the pineal switch in the closed position, shorting out the bulk of bioenergy that would be communicating with the cosmic sector, soul side. Threat of wizards and witches eliminated, by genetic design.

Consider the "natural consequences" of that design, as it applies to various types of people. Consider the football star versus the science geek... it does not have to do with sex drive, but the actual acts that demand fluorine. Who stays connected with their "sensitive side?"

And the funny thing is, is that TPTB fluoridated our water for other reasons, namely pacification, not realizing the consequence of the act might just prevent that deadman's swtich from firing off when it should--why so many of the younger generation retain their psi skills past puberty. (But don't tell TPTB that--they haven't figured it out yet!)

Daniel, are you aware of any methods of dissolving that accumulated calcium fluoride and re-opening the switch? From your description it sounds as if (surprisingly) drinking fluoridated water through childhood and into puberty could prevent the switch from closing in the first place, as an unintended consequence. But I'm curious if any methods exist to dissolve it in a person where it is already closed? If technology to re-activate psionic ability closed at puberty exists, this could be a game changer.

Billy's description of mugwort's effect on the pineal gland, or at least dreams, got me thinking along these lines.

Thanks!
