Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Pass the Duct Tape

On Glenn Beck's radio show he does a routine of wrapping his head with duct tape (sound effects) so his head won't explode when he hears something outrageous. I found myself looking around for duct tape this morning at the coffee shop.

I was having a perfectly interesting conversation with a lovely lady to whom I'd just been introduced. After a few pleasantries about her fascinating job, she reached in her briefcase, pulled out something about the size of a small 3" battery pack and attached electrodes to her wrists. She explained to me that she was purifying her blood--that "blood electrification" cures memory loss (her problem), cancer, Parkinson's, etc., and that ambrotose (sp?) can reverse Down's Syndrome, Alzheimer's and asthma. Truly, I couldn't have been more shocked if she'd opened a box of leeches and attached them to her arm. That's the last "blood cleansing" cure I'd heard of that was so all encompassing.

I excused myself from the table and drove home with visions of 19th century snake oil salesmen laughing all the way to the bank, only these were on the internet charging $100 for a device that costs maybe $1.00 to put together. After checking the Internet, I see that the web is full of these things--both the bioelectrification gimmicks and the ambrotose (extract of cabbage and grapes, I think), all with assurances that the mean old medical establishment doesn't want us to know of these wonders, the pharmaceutical industry fears these "break throughs," and so forth. (Medical breakthroughs that are "secrets" should be the dead giveaway that you've stepped deep into doo-doo.)

I've checked Medline and the Alternative Medicine database, but can't turn up any entries, let alone rebuttals. Which means not even a clinical trial that failed has been published? Yet all these websites make references to "research" and "papers." Must be using these papers to train puppies (whose circulation system and kidneys are apparently performing the cleansing function without an electrical assist from a cheap battery), because they don't seem to be in any known medical journals.

    I should think that wrapping duct tape around one's head might affect a better cure for memory loss than a pesky battery-pack, leads, and electrodes, all subject to getting misplaced and lost somewhere.

    cxcxgsaI had two family members who were told by their separate doctors to go home and die. They both used these "devices" and the doctors cannot believe they are still alive All traces of cancer are gone. Try eating the duct tape instead of wrapping it around your head.

    We don't know what we don't know which is by far more than what we know and what we know that we don't know.......Read it again and you will find out that it make a lot of sense.....Blood Electrification is a great example how most people , based on their conditioning that society imposed on them , are not able to be open enough to stop and say hey maybe it does work.
    For me a simple man or woman who uses it and get results worth much more value than pfizer scientific findings .. In the last 2 weeks I heard from 2 people that cured lime disease and chronic cold and fever. Good enough for me

    She isn't nuts at all, there are numerous patents and papers on electrification of bodily fluids at 50-100 uA of electrical current. Its been proven, to sterilize bodily fluids without rendering them biologically unfit.

    I used it to clear out an antibiotic resistant Mycobacterium infection, diagnosed by a MD, and given the cured status by the same MD who had given me less than a year to live.

    I am in perfect health now, and take no drugs.

    This is one of those things that you really have to see to believe. This isn't a conspiracy BTW, this is just cut-throat business, orchestrated by the large pharmaceutical companies who would go belly up from this discovery.

    I think people like this with closed minds deserve what they get. The large pharmacuitical companies all have there own agenda and do not want low cost competition to succeed. Bob Becks protocol has certainly helped me with my cancer when the medical profession has failed.

    Maybe take the duct tape off your eyes and put it over your mouth before speaking?

    I haven't yet tried Dr Beck's blood electrification device, but have purchased all the parts to build one (yes the plans are 100% free on the internet).

    From what I read there is a lot of people having great success with these devices. Are they all legit? who knows? But for less than thirty bucks I'll give it ago.
