Looking beyond the Overton Window at magnesium and iodine and water.
Elimination diet - personal diet/health brief update at the end.
Controlling what is funded directs research and public discussion towards areas that funders are interested in and away from those topics they don't want explored more.
Do we want to find out that glyphosate is hurting health? Or fluoride? Or bromide? Or is that Top Secret info that would hurt corporate profit? Or disrupt an international goal for depopulation?
Continuing, re history of media manipulation of the direction of science study of water, which was included in: The Fourth Phase of Water - Beyond Solid, Liquid, Vapor, by Gerald H. Pollack.
The text books by Gerald H. Pollack share the history of water research, more in the 2013 book, and it was disrupted by a suspicious media narrative about a Russian scientist, Boris Derjaguin. (The Fourth Phase of Water, p 19) Media scare myths were spread about his findings that he had never said and then a debunking team declared the polywater research unrepeatable by themselves, (a biased team), and therefore no good. It was replicated by others though, but a question of impurity of the water was made into a huge thing and again that furor took precedence over the anomaly found in the data.
Controlled narrative is about slinging mud or awarding roses so that the public will look only at the mud or the roses/awards given to someone else in an area of research that is being promoted.

Ooooh, Russians are bad, um kay. We need to stomp on all of them before they stomp on us! That frequent media narrative at this point is a huge Red flag in play to me - what does the scare media want us to ignore? The anomalous findings about water and its energy potential? Free energy of life? Ooooh, that would be bad for corporate profit! Top Secret!
Discussion of his books are in these posts:
Iodine and the book Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life - Gerald H. Pollack, (Substack).
Follow up on Cells, Gels & the Engines of Life - G.H. Pollack; pufferfish and biotensegrity too. Magnesium and ATP - if you like ATP then you need magnesium adequacy. (Substack)
Russia did it! Russia broke the Overton Window on US agriculture chemicals! (and bioweapon labs!) They must be stopped!
Some screenshot quotes from a great article by Demi Pietchell.
Building new health and academic industries is a need - too much wrong information is embedded throughout current policies. Silo-ing of information is another problem - Gerald H. Pollack isn’t a clinician - he is looking at water from the electrical engineering direction, while I have a mindset more of ‘How do we use this info for better health?’ Calcium is very powerful - admirably so, yet from a health perspective its power to condense proteins and dehydrate gels is why the body would need to be so careful to prevent excess entry of calcium into cells. We need magnesium to help block channels that allow more calcium entry. Pollack is somewhat dismissive of membranes and ion channels as they have dominated science over the electrical plasma nature of our cellular and extracellular matrix/fluid. (Cells, Gels, and the Engines of Life, 2001) *My next post will look more at magnesium-ATP, *links shared in this post Follow-up… (Substack).
This Overton Window post is more about why we need to ‘do our own research’ on magnesium and many other topics - and by that I do mean look at original research and consider where it is from and who funded it as well as what the article says. Also original documents can tell more about history than history books may.
Building new health care guidance has been my work in progress since 2010 when I left my job in Public Health. I was glad kind of to lose my job that required me to say stuff like “ WIC policy recommends fluoride rinse or tablets for children without fluoridated water. The rinse would be less of a health risk to the rest of the body. You could look at this website on your own for more info….fluoridealert.org.” Top Secret info rather than my official lesson plan on the subject or get a warning written in my employee chart.
I did make a handout for clients on a need for more iodine than we typically get or are recommended to take.
Magnesium is also Top Secret or misunderstood by mainstream medical research. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency are labeled other things and medication for symptom management is given instead of guidance and screening to find out why chronic low level magnesium is present. Glyphosate and the standard diet is a big reason; stress and gut microbiome dysbiosis is another; genetic poor gut absorption or increased urinary loss of magnesium are two other potential reasons. Many medications cause increased loss of magnesium too.
I seem to need topical sources of magnesium genetically but it turns out I am also sulfate sensitive genetically and magnesium chloride soaks are better for me than Epsom salt, magnesium sulfate baths or hand or foot soaks. Staying in an Epsom salt both would cause my heart rate to speed up and I took that as a ‘Get out of the tub’ signal but it was sulfate excess — which can occur quickly if breakdown enzymes are dysfunctional. Magnesium chloride soaks don't cause the increased heart rate if I stay in too long which makes sense as excess magnesium would cause s slowing of the heart rate - bradycardia, rather than speeding up to tachycardia which is a symptom of sulfites/sulfate excess and can be scary - panic attack? Heart attack? Or I ate too much sulfite in food or sulfate from food and Epsom salt?
Personal Elimination Diet going moderately well, with some lumps an bumps in the road.
I am slowly figuring out what foods are better for me but it has been a challenge and the over restrictions got annoying enough for me to start trying to add back some older excluded foods - like fish. So far it seems to be okay but I am not sure if the autoimmune risk is still a concern but my gut health is better now so less leaky protein absorption maybe?
Knowing definitely what will or won't help an autoimmune patient isn't really something any practitioner can know, so if someone suggests they have those answers for you, suspect a lie or that there is over-confidence on their part.
What works during a very inflamed state may be more restricted than needed during an improved time of health - but going back to old habits can just lead to a return of the more severe inflammation, so it is a tightrope to walk carefully. Emotional and social needs can also impact diet - we want to fit in or simply want the traditional food, not a substitute. Care may be needed not to worsen eating disorder issues when working on an elimination diet. *Reduce variety to safest things, try to regain a base health level, then retry things one at a time or groups of similar things to test if negative symptoms return.
