brought back via hypnosis

pascaThe man behind a world-famous alien abduction claims to have remembered three other terrifying encounters with a faceless woman after being hypnotized last week. Calvin Parker sparked a global media frenzy on October 11 in 1973 after he and his pal Charles Hickson told a sheriff they had been kidnapped by aUFO. The pair had been fishing in Pascagoula River in Mississippi when they said they saw lights across the water before they were floated into a space craft. This episode has gone down in history as the Pascagoula River alien encounter and is considered one of the best-documented cases of an alien abduction. Now, nearly 50 years later, Daily Star Online can reveal that Parker has been hypnotized by UFO researcher and author Kathleen Marden and recounted additional alien encounters. These startling new claims are made in Parkers new book Pascagoula The Story Continues: New Evidence and New Witnesses. Under hypnosis on September 19, Parker told Marden that when he was nine years old he looked out the Read more

caesarean section impacts baby

Together with colleagues from Sweden and Luxembourg, scientists from the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg have observed that, during a natural vaginal birth, specific bacteria from the mother’s gut are passed on to the baby and stimulate the baby’s immune responses. This transmission is impacted in children born by caesarean section. “This may explain why, epidemiologically speaking, caesarean-born children suffer more frequently from chronic, immune system-linked diseases compared to babies born vaginally,” says the head of the study Associate Prof. Paul Wilmes. His team has now published its results in the open access journal Nature Communications.

Humans are born germ-free. Yet, birth is normally the time when vitally important bacteria start to colonise the body including the gut, skin and lungs. Researchers have long suspected that this early colonisation sets the course for one’s later health. It could be, however, that a caesarean section prevents certain bacteria, ordinarily interacting with the baby’s immune system, from being passed on from the mother to the new-born. Paul Wilmes, head of the Eco-Systems Biology research group at the LCSB, and his colleagues have now found the first evidence of this in a study of new-borns — half of whom were delivered by caesarean section. Wilmes reports: “We find specific bacterial substances that stimulate the immune system in vaginally born babies. In contrast, the immune stimulation in caesarean children is much lower either because the bacterial triggers are present at much lower levels or other bacterial substances hamper these initial immune reactions to happen.”

This bacterial coloniser-immune system link — together with other factors — could explain why caesarean section babies are statistically more prone to develop allergies, chronic inflammatory diseases and metabolic diseases. “It could be that the immune system of these children is set on a different path early on,” suggests Paul Wilmes. “We now want to further investigate this link mechanistically and find ways by which we might replace the lacking maternal bacterial strains in caesarean-born babies, e.g. by administering probiotics.”

“Of course, it is already clear that we should not intervene too strongly in the birth process. Babies should only be delivered by caesarean section when it is medically necessary,” Paul Wilmes stresses. “We need to be aware that, in doing so, we are apparently intervening massively in the natural interactions between humans and bacteria.”

hypnosis to ease childbirth and soothe migraine

Hypnosis. Just the word conjures up mental images of swinging pocket watches, swirling eyes and that class party where your friend pretended to be a chicken. But what you may not know is that hypnotism can mean big business with salaries of some hypnotherapists going into the six-figures and stage hypnotists requesting $1,000 – $4,000 […]
