THE “NARCOLEPSY THING”… AN UPDATE

It's that time again, and I am sifting through emails and articles and trying to make final cuts, but there's one blog in particular that elicited quite a response, and that much to my surprise. The blog in question is from a couple weeks ago, when I described my battles with a recent case of.... well... "narcolepsy" is the only way to describe it: a sudden, overwhelming onset of fatigue and sleep.

Little did I know that there are a lot of you out there going through the same, or something similar, and I have decided that I will try to summarize the comments people have sent, as a way of defining the phenomenon more adequately. What many of these comments displayed or were concerned with was the mechanism of the phenomenon, and here we will discover a whole variety of explanations. What is most evident from the variety of explanations is that the phenomenon is widespread enough and severe enough that many of you have sought and researched various explanations to begin with. 

So let me review some of the emails and comments I received, by way of the mechanisms people have proposed:

Explanation one: Diet: One gentleman, Mr. W., emailed and stated that it could be diet related by too much intake of cereals and sugars, and too low a chromium and vanadium intake. He advised to cut all this back, even in the form of fruits and juices, and increase my protein intake. The sudden fatigue, he observed, was often the symptom of type two Diabetes onset.

Except there's one problem in my case (and I suspect, in the case of my friend and colleague with whom I originally compared notes on this story, for I happen to know he watches his diet carefully). The problem in my case is that I already am on a high protein diet, and do not intake that much sugar. Most of the sweets consumption in my case is via drinks, and even then, I use artificial sweetners more often than not.(I know I know! Don't send me a bunch of emails about that please.) My point here is that even though I do eat a lot of breads, and in some cases, pasta, the onset of these narcolepsy attacks is not coordinated in any fashion that I can see with the timing of my meals. Moreover, some days will pass when my food intake is more or less normally what it is, and the attacks do not occur at all.

Example one: A gentleman, Mr. F.S., wrote and stated that originally he thought it was simply age-related, he being 65 years old. When I read the rest of his comment, however, I readily identified almost all the same sets of phenomena as I had been experiencing, for Mr. F.S. works from home, and, like me, spends a great deal of time on, his computer. He indicated that many times his family has found him, slumped over his computer keyboard, mouse in hand, sound asleep. Like me, this phenomenon comes and goes, though in his case he indicated that it started about two years ago.

A Speculation: This, for me, was a decisive indication, for Mr. F.S., and my colleague with whom I originally shared the "narcolepsy" phenomenon, all work at home, and all of us spend a great deal of time at our computers. Then came...

Example two: A gentleman, Mr. A.F., who lives in Bangkok, Thailand, reported that he too has experienced symptoms of sudden onset fatigue, and these at "unusual times." Initially he wondered if it was simply a mild form of depression or a virus, but concluded it was not given the phenomenon's widespread distribution. And Mr. A.F., like my colleague, and Mr. F.S., also spends a great deal of time at his computer. He even voiced the conclusion I was beginning to come to myself... that the phenomenon was tied to the computer, to a technology.

Explanation Two: Thus we come to an offering by Mr. P.R., from Canada, who, while not apparently suffering from any "sudden onset fatigue or narcolepsy", indicated a number of links to various devices being sold on the internet that, by manipulating electromagnetic waves and entraining brain waves, can alter one's mood, concentration, and memory. True enough, such gadgets exist and we've probably all seen them, though I cannot comment on their effectiveness.

Example three: But then, Ms. P.H., a regular reader here, weighed in with her experience, and she indicated that she has experienced being suddenly overcome with "the need to fall asleep right now"(her emphasis) and reaching REM sleep extremely fast, and experiencing vivid dreams and nightmares that she is convinced are being induced. When they do not occur, she experiences insomnia. In addition, she indicated that DARPA (you remember them, the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency) has been investigating the components of our circadian rhythms... and she sent a link to technologies available to "law enfarcement" officials that is probably only the tip of the iceberg, the implication being that technologies exist to induce sleep:

http://www.shomer-tec.com/department/revenge-products-33.cfm

Explanation Three: Then Mr. B.G. in Indonesia weighed in with his email, and recalled an episode from the Byte Show where Ms. George Ann Hughes speculated that, for whatever reason, she suspected there was more behind the governments' programs to vilify smoking and smokers than meets the eye, and that she thinks  for whatever reason smoking inhibits whatever chemical or technological means of manipulation might be going on.

My Experiment: This gave me pause, for I had not been smoking inside my home for some time, and I decided to light up my pipe while I work, and see  if perhaps this would have any effect. I can say that while the attacks have not ceased, they appear to have abated in quantity and intensity. Of course, this "experiment" is not scientific in any sense, but my impression nonetheless remains.

Explanation Four: So we come to the explanation that makes the most sense to me (with one very important caveat which we'll get to). Mr. A.F. from Bangkok speculated that such influence seems to be targeted in some cases, and the common thing that emerges from the above review is that all persons so effected spend large amounts of time on their computers. Thus, he speculated that one might be looking at some form of embedded malware of transient executable code that would cause an individual computer to emit a wave form to a frequency designed to entrain barinwaves, and induce sudden fatigue, sleep, mood alterations, or whatever.

This is not as far-fetched as it sounds, and readers familiar with former Lt. Col. Tom Bearden(US Army, Ret), will be aware that he long ago maintained that such capabilities existed, and that sudden onset of heart problems or coronary arrest could also be induced by this means.

All this in my own "high octane speculation opinion" could be true..  except for a couple of problems: I have experienced these attacks when I am away from my computer, and my colleague has experienced them while driving. Of course, cell phones could be so entrained, but I do not own one (and refuse to get one)...

...so perhaps we are looking at a larger phenomenon, one not limited to computers.

In any case folks, that's my update on the "narcoplepsy story", and I'd like to thank all of you who took the time to share your experiences and to comment about this problem.

See you on the flip side...

  1. anyone hearing high pitched, very high pitched ringing?
    followed by insights?

    no problems with narcolepsy…although i do commonly find myself in deep trance thoughts.

  2. Hi all, although late to this thread I thought I would add my 2 pennies worth as it is my field, I work in healthcare.
    TS is absolutely correct in the critical importance of nutrition and supplementation.
    We are in a state of environmental toxic overload, our physiology cannot adapt quickly enough. Add to that the nefarious EM control systems being exerted on us, we need help.
    Critical to physiology are the electrolytes (most commonly, sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium) and hydration. Many of my patients are sub clinicly dehydrated and sluggish, lacking vitality, children included.
    Salt has a bad rep due to the harmful effect on cardiovascular health of processed salt. However, this has led to an avoidance of unprocessed sea or himalayan salt which is vital to health and will regulate blood including pressure gradients. These salts are roughly 60-70% sodium chloride, the rest is a vast cocktail of electrolytes and minerals.
    Toxic stress depletes us and our physiology. When we add how stressful life is to this we need help indeed. Use a pinch of sea salt daily, best in water or another product rich in electrolytes.
    Recall that salt was once an ancient commodity and for good reasons. There is no neural life without it.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Someone told me Gatorade is good for electrolytes.
      Any truth to it?
      And with sea salt, what about Fukushima?

      1. terminally skeptical

        Robert, IMO Gatorade is unnecessary. I started out here by lambasting the high fructose corn syrup I thought still present but then discovered they’ve gone back to using a sucrose-dextrose blend for sweetener. Apparently they also have a low or no sugar version but I have been avoiding sweeteners in their numerous forms as much as possible or at least use it judiciously (locally sourced honey, but that’s another story). The electrolytes, not the “energy” is what we’re really after and for that RAJM is right on the mark (thanks RAJM for filling in my omission) with the the sea salt recommendation to take a pinch every day. I’ve both heard of and know people who are advised by physicians to stay on a low sodium diet because of sodium sensitivity who do just fine with sea salt. Moreover the trace minerals in sea salt often helps lower blood pressure whereas regular iodized salt does just the opposite. Alas many physicians are still not up to speed on the monumental difference between the two. I use the Himalayan Pink sea salt mined in Pakistan, available at Trader Joe’s. Also good is Dead Sea salt. In both cases the salt has already been dry for ages so your ocean/Fukushima concern doesn’t even enter the picture. Celtic sea salt from France is extracted from dried contemporary sea water. It may still be safe but I have stopped using it for several years already because I believe the mined salt is a lower contamination risk rather than chancing the possibility of metals like mercury, aluminum, barium etc.

        Alright, so you know I’m not a physician, etc., right? And one size doesn’t fit all, particularly in the nutritional and dietary supplement world so talk with a forward thinking physician or someone in a similar capacity if you have any doubts regarding your specific augmentation needs. That said, the indicated sea salt is miraculous in it’s ability to facilitate good health.

        BTW, a ’69 Goat with a 389? What happened to the 400?

        1. Robert Barricklow

          I was in the service at the time. A “rich” kid totaled his brand new GTO and I bought it for the engine. Another GI, w/ past Mexican gang ties, knew of a body man who might be able to put Humpty-Dumpty back together. So I bought it for a song & a dance, and the Mexican body man brought it back to life. All I had to do was steal it back to life(BUT wouldn’t give it back). My friend(x-mex-gang) & I stole it back(he was paid before he “took” it) I left the primer on, and …the action never stopped until, …long story.
          It was a 389, 3 deuces, 4 speed hurst shift(with a 5th under the seat!), muffler glasspack, and…

          Miss it.

          1. Robert Barricklow

            steal it back
            (to life) was in sentence above & it didn’t delete. Don’t text much.

            The Gatorade was recommended to a family member by a doctor(of course).

            I’ll be looking for some sea salt myself.
            Thanks for the tip, terminally skeptical & RAJM.

        2. TS, nutrition is probably the most ignored critical biological subject in medicine. Most of the folks I know who understand and research it are not physicians. Some great exceptions are Linus Pauling and Russ Jaffe.

          I am very happy to see that fellow members of Dr. JF’s group are highly knowledgable about this subject and it utterly folds into the core of these threads we follow here.

          “Control the food, control the people” said he…

      2. RB, Agreed about the use of Himalayan pink salt and sea salt for flavor and minerals, and dehydration in general.
        Re Gatorade, one of the ingredients was BVO, brominated vegetable oil, an emulsifier, patented as a flame retardant! It’s banned in food products in Japan and the EU because of health issues, but FDA says it’s safe for us. It was an online petition started by a 15-year-old girl which resulted in PepsiCo removing BVO, not because it was unsafe, mind you, but because of negative consumer perception. A different chemical was substituted, but BVO is still used in many other drinks, so read the labels!

  3. I work from home, spend significant hours at the computer but am a very healthy fit 42 year old. I have had the described narcolepsy symptoms in the past and was subsequently diagnosed with an underperforming thyroid. This was remedied with supplementation and my energy levels returned almost overnight. This despite increased use of the computer post diagnosis. Lately I have been having narcolepsy symptoms again possibly due to being undisciplined with supplementation in the last 2 months. However, my use of electronic devices has also recently increased thanks to Dr. Farrell whom I spend my evenings listening to having recently obtaining membership. 🙂
    I’m afraid nothing conclusive in my own experience but I wonder whether radiation emissions play a role, inhibiting thyroid function which can be counteracted via supplementation.

  4. Wow, this is happening to other people. Let me say first off that I do work night shift. I often hop on the computer when I get home. I have found myself falling sound asleep for hours with the computer still on. This might not be so unusual except I have never been able to sleep sitting up even when exhausted.
    George Ann’s observation is interesting. There is an antipsychotic (Olanzapine) they do not like to give to smokers because it is not as effective for them. They think it has something to do with the dopamine receptors. Also, smoke creates negative ions. That’s why it is used in so many indiginous peoples rituals.

  5. Dag from Ringerike

    Very interesting to read about this subject and all the comments that show that this is a widespread phenomenion.

    I will look at this in a another angel, and maybe it could help some of you that are suffering.

    I grew up in a small farm. My father was a gardener and his business was to grow plants in two greenhouses where all the plants for every season he was taking care of. And of course growing vegetables on the fields during summer.

    What I notice in retrospect, his day started at 6 o´clock in the morning, controlling the greenhouses, then making breakfast for all of us. During holidays I noticed, after working hours he had a nap in the mid day, only for about 20 minutes. Then he was working in the greehouses before he was making the dinner for all of us (my mother was running the sale store). After dinner, normally a heavy meal, he had a new nap in the early afternoon, but only for 20 minutes again, and then the last two or three working hours.

    So many of us are now living in an urban environment, and maybe we have forgotten the old farm style of living. After working hours, you need to relax or have a nap. Look at the animals, if they are having high activity during daytime, they settle down – and have a nap.

    Even if we are working before a computer, I think our body and brain need to pause. And before a nap, maybe some minutes on a training bike can be helpfull. But, put it into a system.

  6. This reminded me of a project Camelot interview with the pseudonymous “Jake Simpson.” The information is way out there, but that doesn’t mean it is untrue.

    Anyway, the relevant bit from Bill Ryan’s article:

    “On our last night together, sitting out in the open after a barbecue, at about 2 am, Jake decided to tell me some things he had not previously revealed, surveillance or no surveillance. As he began to speak, he immediately encountered problems, as if trying to force himself through a barrier. Simultaneously, I found I was being put to sleep and could hardly keep my eyes open. We both spotted what was happening, and remarked on it to one another.

    Jake forced himself to keep talking, and I made myself keep listening through a spell of overwhelming dopiness. This episode lasted half an hour or maybe more. We were being forcibly stopped, in real time, from communicating effectively, as a direct and immediate response to our intentions.”

  7. Live in Belgium, not that that is important but is a long way from the USA.
    I’m 57 and luckely sleep sound in my bed. Sleep better during the day then at nights but thats propably because I work partime only at night. So my healthstyle = rather unhealthy. My health and energy improved by taking daily vitamins (niacin high) and weekly magnesium baths. The magnesium improved a lot of things actually. The matras of my bed made a huge difference too. I have a matras on air and can make the matras harder or softer. I dont’t mean a camping blow-up, more the waterbed style but without the weight.
    Spend a lot of time behind the computer. Not a meditator either and dont suffer from sudden sleepyness aldough I know people in my surroundings who do.

  8. A lot of reasonsable ideas in these comments. While there may be things going on in the black projects world to induce sleep in the population at large, there are also other “epidemic” levels of physical problems: heart arrythmias, magnesium deficiencies, memory problems, etc.

    Anyone who watches people on their mobile devices is familiar with the strange detachment these people have from their physical surroundings. (Check out the many videos on YouTube – people walking into rivers, railroad tracks, etc.) It can partially be an attention issue, and partly a form of hypnosis.

    Stress and changes in work shifts can mess with circadian rythms, and sudden bouts of sleepiness can easily result. Bluish light, like that fromm computer screens, can also cause problems with sleep cycles.

    Electromagnetic signals can definitely entrain the brain, and this has been known and practiced for decades. If they can induce voices in the brain by microwave, they can certianly send encoded signals which entrain the brain to sleep (or any other) states. This is not new technology, so the question is, why now?

    One may concoct all sorts of explanations for any particular group to develop and use mass sleep technology – an efficient weapon, cheap restraint for making us all prisoners, perhaps even a humanitarian motive to put us all asleep before the planet is destroyed by some catasptrophe so we will suffer less (although I find it hard to believe the elite would bother to care about “useless eaters” in pain . . .).

    I believe that there is a definite component of energetic “awakening” to it all. If what is recorded about the galatic alignment of our time is even partly true, then we may expect to experience unusual states of consciousness – and sleep IS an altered state. There are several disciplines which use sleep as a spiritual practice (I’ve tried some), and I’ve even seen a quote (unverfied) from the Dalai Lama that says sleep is the best meditation.

    If there is indeed a “quickening” going on, then radical changes in consciousness states are to be expected. For those not trained to handle such changes, it will seem mysterious and scary. If what has been predicted by some is coming to pass, we may see a definite increase in such things, including a return of such things as the “convulsionaires” as described in Talbot’s book, “The Holographic Universe.”

    Good health practices, exploration of, and comfort with, altered states, as well as patience, and an understanding of the immense range of possible human experience will all be required for those who would seek to stay above the noise in this time of changes. We face challenges from many quarters.

  9. This napping after work started for me about a year ago. It was like someone slipped something into my coffee. At work pretty much in front of a computer screen even if not directly working with it. Never was a napper. Thought maybe it was long hours at the screen, or the subway sandwiches, turning 60, lack of exercise, diet, indoor air pollution as in northern WA lots of molds. Also here lotsa border security radio transmissions. Maybe it’s a generalized boredom; i find my dream life to be more interesting then my real one. Think how boring sportcenter& Olympic curling really is.Now in NYC it’s the endless boring “snow” stories. Notice the weather predicting has been spot on; not like some years back when they would be totally wrong a significant %. Notice the miraculous warm up at the superbowl & Olympics.

  10. An ‘environmental’ health issue which I haven’t seen mentioned is MCS, multiple chemical sensitivity. I am allergic to petrochemicals, perfumes and synthetic fragrances, scented household cleaning/personal care products (“air fresheners” are the worst), etc. Exposure causes dizziness, mental confusion, foggy thinking, dull headache and pressure. But not necessarily sleepiness, except that coping with overexposure causes tiredness. Avoidance is the only remedy. I am in good health, eat fresh organic, unprocessed foods, drink filtered water, no alcohol, tobacco or soft drinks, occasionally use a bit of raw sugar or honey, very little dairy or wheat, and take good food-based nutritional supplements. I don’t get as much exercise as I should, I stay up too late (reading GDS blogs 😉 ), and do spend too many hours a day in front of the computer, when I was working and even now that I am retired. One of the most important things we can do for ourselves is to get educated about good nutrition. For instance, magnesium is a critical essential mineral and most people are deficient (a mild deficiency may be the cause insomnia). I recommend Dr Mark Sircus’s website for more information and his book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy. Also I am sold on calcium bentonite clay for detox and many other health uses. See FAQs on aboutclay dot com. Our body has an amazing ability to protect and heal itself when given the proper nutrition and care. Thanks everyone, I appreciate your comments and suggestions and wish you all wellness and good health.

  11. I don’t know if this will help anyone, but I suffered from insomnia for years and years. It caused great distress. I read about EMFs in the bedroom causing insomnia. Having tried everything else I could think of to get some relief to no effect, I tried what the article suggested. I unplugged all the electronics from around my bed before going to sleep. That night, I slept soundly. To continue the experiment, the next night I shut off the circuit breaker to my room, and ran an extension cord in from another room for the alarm clock, which was placed in the far corner of the room. That night I slept like a baby. It may not be necessary to go to the extent of shutting off the circuit breaker, but for me shutting off the electricity really worked. Since then I’ve enjoyed perfect sleep (unless the neighbors are partying loudly). You might give it a try if nothing else has been effective. God bless and Godspeed.

  12. I agree with the thought above that there are many causes for what I call CFS.

    It’s a difficult subject. I was diagnosed with CFS many years ago – and only with much persuasion from two friends. I was always so tired, with all the symptoms the lady describes in one of the articles you posted above – except I also have huge problems sleeping and never just “fall asleep” in a chair, like some “lucky to me” people. I didn’t believe I had it.

    For me, I found several reasons that seemed to fit.

    I put in extremely long hours of farm work for many years as well as rearing four children. I also had very bad sinus, which always meant a quick trip to the doctor for a needle so I could continue the day’s farm work. I always pushed my body, which seemed to be always exhausted. There was also real tension with a difficult husband who later caused more stress because of the manner of his death. I’ve studied all the metaphysical reasons I could possibly have for my tiredness, but unfortunately nothing works. Also my doctor informs me my kidneys are thinning, and she believes this could be a cause of tiredness.

    I spend a lot of time at the computer now, but that to me is at least using my mind when it’s just too hard to do much else. I didn’t have a computer when I first became so tired.

    I do not think it is psychological, though I’ve certainly gone down that path, along with re-birthing when that was in vogue many years ago, ayahuasca in Peru a few years back, meditation (can’t), alternative healing in many forms (I always get told my energy level is very low – or down in my feet as one lady put it.)

    And I eat well. Very little sugar. Salads, vegetables, yoghurt, lemon juice, anything that is healthy I eat… , purified water, no soft drinks etc.

    If any doctor, whether a psychologist or not, could help I’d be very grateful.

    I have tried everything I have ever been offered, or found for myself, that may help and am now on Chinese herbs as a last ditch attempt to gain some energy.

    I doubt that anyone would target me, though I would not say the same for Dr Farrell, whose work I consider to be vital for those seeking knowledge.

    1. terminally skeptical

      Daphne my heart goes out to you in your trials and tribulations.

      First, I’m not a physician, naturopath, nutritional counselor or medicine man.

      These last two years I have read and heard of wonderous accounts of health restoration overcoming challenges like CFS through the consumption of fermented foods as dietary staple. This link and/or the Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride provides valuable information if you’ve not been down that path yet.

      http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/05/12/dr-campbell-mcbride-on-gaps.aspx

      Also in more recent times the insidious nature of systemic inflammation has been getting ever more attention. Harvey Bigelson wrote a great little book called Doctors Are More Harmful Than Germs. Ignore the hyperbolic title. The logic behind it will become clear when you read the book.

      Earlier today I mentioned elsewhere on this thread that there is an extract of raw coconut oil that purportedly brings clarity to those who ingest it. I haven’t tried it yet myself although I just ordered some. Read what I wrote and if need be I’ll provide more info or clarification.

      1. Thanks for pointing me to the Harvey Bigelson book, hyperbolic title and all. I looked it up and found this plainspoken, on-target quote:
        “What is going on today in the name of health care is an absolute nightmare. Increasingly, needless and damaging surgeries are being performed. We are given chemicals and poisons under the euphemism of prescription drugs. The worst part is that all of this is done with incredible arrogance. Our allowing it is quite literally killing us and destroying society. We, as a society, have become sheeple. We have accepted that the letter MD and AMA equals ‘expert’.”

        Certainly we can add the American Healthprofitcare System to the champions of destructiveness. It breaks my heart to see what years of statins have done to an elderly brother of mine. Personally, I avoid doctors like the plague, take no regular prescriptions, and shun the company’s ‘wellness screening'(aka product promotion) events.
        Best health wishes to all!

        1. terminally skeptical

          MizGreen I too have a low opinion of health screening. Considering that many of the tests are inconclusive, with results either meaningless or with false positives yet the interpretation thereof eliciting prophylactic measures that snag and then keep the hapless in the medical mill, it’s plausible that even the healthy will be told they have a defect.

          Furthermore be assured that with big brother’s ambitious profiling our DNA will too sooner or later end up in their data base.

          I’m glad you intend to read the book. I wish everyone here would. It’s that good.

      2. TS, thank you so much for responding. I did go on, didn’t I. But I’m having a really bad patch right now. If I could stay in bed all day that would be great. 🙂

        I will read the link and check out the book.

        I see MizGreen gives a quote from the book, and I must say I don’t think that particular quote applies in my case.

        I take 2 tablets (reduced from 2 each) at night so I can sleep or at least relax. That is the only medication for CFS I take. I am very wary of being pumped full of medication but I have to relax and sleep at night!

        Again, I so appreciate your thoughtfulness.
        Daphne

        1. terminally skeptical

          Daphne, VERY glad to see you are open to fermented foods.

          Here’s an infomercial that I read earlier today.

          http://store.activationproducts.com/panaseeda?AFFID=140036

          I’ve haven’t tried this stuff yet but if I did I would drink it raw by the shot glass. I eat raw coconut oil every day. It gives me a steady long lasting energy. And I did order some “enhanced” coconut oil extract

          I don’t drink milk but if I were ill I would go out of my way to drink raw milk. Also butter (butyric acid) from grass fed cows.

          Working on a farm, especially with grain crops leaves you vulnerable to systemic bodily fungus conditions like candida. CFS without a presence of candida is rare.

          Also chemicals, heavy metal exposure, arsenic.

          What is the common denominator in all of this?
          Besides restoring the gut to good health, quality raw fats are a must for good health. Exhausted kidneys, liver will interfere with the sleep cycle. And a brain riddled with fungus, often attributable to a weak gut, will leave you chronically fatigued yet with difficulty sleeping.

          1. Robert Barricklow

            Yes, terminally skeptical
            The current Rockefeeler Health System represents racketeering dressed up in the rhetoric of public good. The “Milk Cure” was a highly successful method of treating chronic disease detailed in a 1929 article by one of the founders of the Mayo Clinic of how many physicians used natural foods, including raw milk, to tackle a problem of chronic illness in the years before(1929). The authorities since have abrogated their responsibilities to the public and acted dishonestly. The BEST foods in the world are rich in cholesterol and animal fats- fresh and fermented unprocessed dairy foods, and eggs, meat and poultry from pasture-based farms.

        2. This comment is probably waaaay too late, but I wanted to clarify something — when I quoted Bigelson about the AMA making us ‘sheeple’ with their pills, I wasn’t referring to someone like DaphneO, who understandably seeks real-time med help with her CFS. I probably sounded a bit arrogant in my dissing prescriptions… In truth, I’ve just been damned lucky with my health. I’ve known people suffering from chronic pain and CFS, and there’s no faulting them for trying to find relief by whatever means they can. (I had a painful back injury last year, and for a couple of weeks, Percocet became my bestest friend!)
          All the best to you Daphne, you’re obviously smart and tough, and we’re all pulling for you!

      3. TS, I’m listening to the video right now, and I believe I had a test for that about 6 years ago. I had gone back to my CFS specialist as I was getting “desperate” again. This doctor specialisd in this condition as his wife came down with it. He travelled overseas to conferences and learned as much as he could.

        The test cost over $300 and I had to send it to a special Uni for testing. The results showed that it was not the way my body handled food, and my condition could be put down to “stress”.

        He felt that this was good in that we could concentrate on one area, but when my bills reached a certain level I found I could no longer go on as I knew I was retiring soon.

        I’ve put my name down to subscribe to this site, and will see what else I can learn as time goes on.

        Again, thanks.
        Daphne

          Daphne, you had a test for what?

          I prefer a self reliant approach to health after I’ve gotten the necessary information from a dietary specialist. For the most part I don’t care about their pedigree or their tests. Like MizGreen I’m blessed not to be chronically dependent on outside help.

          To reiterate: Fermented foods as a dietary staple, quality fats including raw coconut oil, sprouted seed breads, reduced carbohydrate consumption, grass fed everything/no grain in their diets (beef, chicken, butter, raw milk (if I drank it-contains colostrum among it’s many good ingredients), Atlantic sardines or similar fish from your part of the world. Avoid North Pacific fish because of Fukushima. I wouldn’t drink coffee if I had CFS unless it’s the expensive kind I’d mentioned). We’re trying to eliminate systemic candida and these ingredients go a long way towards that.

          Try an elimination diet although you may have done so already to determine your food allergies. I’ve had several people tell me they’re not or are allergic to things only to find out otherwise after trying the diet. Learn how by reading Keith Scott-Mumby’s book Diet Wise.

          Cumin which take in capsule and cooking (and rumored especially fermented cumin tea although I’ve not tried this yet, a bit pricy) is a good brain anti fungal. Also olive leaf extract, a strong antioxident. Krill oil and also astaxanthin from safe waters.

          Someone here at GDS mentioned taking magnesium baths (magnesium sulfate, aka, epsom salts) once a week. Great idea.

          The B vitamins, including 12 and 15.

          Chelation Therapy with oral EDTA. This can be tricky because 1)most of the EDTA is destroyed in the gut and in severe cases it could cause a Herksheimer reaction. This may be the one time you enlist the help of a specialist so you don’t get discouraged if/when you should get a sudden large elimination of heavy metals. Your liver, kidneys, spleen and bowels have to be up to task for this. But it doesn’t mean total surrender to an expert; just that they keep a watchful eye on you as you go. Chinese moss also helps eliminate heavy metals.

          Chlorella for blood cleansing ( I use a brand called Kyoto sourced (fresh water) from a Japanese island east of Taiwan).

          ************************************************************
          Also useful but of second tier relevance:

          Pharmaceutical grade MSM (cheaper from an equestrian store) is a good source of sulfur, an often overlooked deficiency. Consider talking Irish moss for it’s myriad nutrients. But keep in mind here the allergy concerns and isolation of dietary items through utilizing the elimination diet.

          I could go on with the vitamin thing but that tends to be most individual and most of the things I’ve noted so far have a broad-based appeal.

          All of these items are relatively inexpensive and with one possible exception you won’t need to spend money on a specialist.

          Forgive this remark if it appears patronizing but keep a copy of this and when you try all of these suggestions as much as possible in unison I’ll bet you’ll improve.

  13. Nothing was mentioned about insomnia, which is the reverse side of the coin of narcolepsy. Am wondering if there could be any connection. I have a terrible case of insomnia. I eat very few sugars and carbs, much protein. I also take many nutritional supplements and no meds. Melatonin does nothing for me. Same with all other nutritional supplements recommended.

    The book Angles Don’t Play This HAARP says that normal brain wave frequencies during most day activities is, beta wave, 13-35 Hertz or pulses per second. Ultra slow waves, or delta waves
    (3-5 Hertz) are found when a person is in deep sleep. When I lie awake, I feel as though my brain is charged up to almost 35 Hertz. I am unable to sleep due to this activity in my brain.

    Am wondering what causes this?

  14. I think there may be a lot of things coming together causing this phenomena (we all know how the New World Orderists love to attack us at every angle- chemtrailing probably being just one aspect but I just think there is no one single cause for anything; there’s always a mixture brewed previously in a cauldron of some sort…

    although I don’t suffer from narcolepsy (just sleep problems: I’m a Gemini) I had an uncle who did; and that was over 30 yrs. ago; could pharmaceuticals play a big role in this?- haven’t ruled that out-

    as for tobacco: in Kerry Cassidy’s interview a few years back with Laura Knight-Jadczyk (whom Jay Weidner has deemed a fraud- but I don’t believe that 100 percent- with all respect to Jay Weidner) Knight-Jadczyk stated that pure tobacco contains a substance (I forget the labeling) that is mind-enhancing (sort of like Ayahuasca-light)- Native North Americans aren’t stupid; after all, if our ‘officious’ history is believable, they introduced tobacco to the first colonists but the first colonists seemed to have ignored the positive aspects of mind expansion and used it aggressively against the people who initially tried to help them-

    please be well all-

    Larry

    1. terminally skeptical

      Yes I saw that interview too when it first came out and the reference to tobacco by Joseph jogged my memory. I only recall Laura K-J saying it stimulated acetylcholine for memory enhancement. If there was more to it than that then I’ve forgotten the rest (perhaps I should have a smoke).

      BTW, have you seen Kerry’s interview with a Rothschild? Pretty wild scheisse. It touches on a number of topics recently discussed here at GDS.

  15. CAF’s website Solari.com has several excellent interviews with Clifford Carnicom and also with Gail Scott on Chemtrails and how to combat their unhealthy effects in the members section. The carnicominstitute.org site has recently (Jan 2014) published data on how to combat the effects of Chemtrails.

  16. Thank you Robert Barricklow, for reminding us of the Chemtrail part of the equation. Brain functioning (fog) is greatly exacerbated by breathing in all the aluminum, barium and other nasty elements on heavy spray days. The particles are small enough (.5 microns) to get past the brain blood barrier. Note: when you place metals in and electromagnetic field, it generates an electromagnetic current. See how this could interfere with brain processes? Exercise, a nice air purifier (IQ Air Health Pro Plus is excellent) and chelation (diatomaceous clay is cheap and affordable, Nature’s Wisdom brand is good and clean) helps quite a bit to combat the zombie/brain fog effect. Clifford Carnicom’s web site has the best information on Chemtrails. I highly suggest reviewing his material if you are not familiar with his work. There’s a lot going on with the Chemtrails that even aware people do not know. http://carnicominstitute.org/

      Thanks for posting your link RavingDave.
      So many fronts on which the oligarchs are attacking the public globally; that, from my perspective, the organized function must be its most disregarded aspect. So many moving parts – yet, in some fashion organized? But how highly & in what manner. That this seems to be obvious(highly organized), yet under the radar, suggest a weakness?
      Or, a Hellbound Train off-it’s-track, & out of mind …control?

      1. I’m sure the latest dialog between CAF and Dr Farrell will be posted on this site soon. The discussion references a “Mega-structure”, aka what CAF calls Mr. Global. The discussion is once again absolutely fascinating, analyzing this dark, governing structure at the highest level, which seems to be detectable only from the shadow of it’s activities and influence. And yes, they are damn well out of their minds, at least from our point of view. The discussion elucidates and sheds light on the rational from the Mega-structure with a penetrating analysis. Though not all that comforting, some level of understanding is ascertainable. Godspeed Robert.

        1. RavingDave, The dialog is posted. Dr. Farrell never announced it but it is in the Members Audio section. It is a riveting discussion, exposing the mega/meta structure, and the who, what, why and how it functions. It’s changed my way of viewing the news and geopolitics. The audio ends abruptly but you can pick up the balance of the discussion in the transcript provided. I left a comment to that effect. This is a must listen if you want to untangle the power structure, and look behind the curtains, the fronts, the elite have put in place to conceal their identities and self-serving manipulations.

        2. Robert Barricklow

          I have to remind myself too many times, don’t shoot the messenger. For the message Fitts gives is one of 1) a coup de grace, not unlike the Lisbon Treaty’s nortorious Artcle 123, and unlike buckle my shoe, it cripples European governments from having a Central Bank to monetize their budget deficits with their own “printing presses”. Thus the analogy as Fitts talks of economy 301. 2) the whole objective in the ongoing struggle between Private & Public is reflect in the human dna of group vs individual. The private side wants to completely obliterate the public commons. And 301, 123 both start the process as the first stepping stone foundations into a space infrastructure. Even to the point of engineering a “human evolution”. Sickening, and, now the messenger is my own damn self. So I’ll twist Picard’s sign of:
          “Make it NOT so”.

  17. I said in the original post that I seemed to be the odd one out, as I haven’t experienced any of these attacks of instant sleep symptoms. I am 64 and stopped drinking soft drinks many years ago. I just drink fruit juice, I do smoke, and I am slightly overweight, so I should be a candidate for sugar diabetis, but I do get tested regularly, and so I don’t have it.

    I agree that possibly spending too much time at the computer “could” induce tiredness, but Joseph’ friend has had attacks driving a car. I am at a loss to evaluate this sleep-e-ness, if you are experiencing this then maybe a blood test may show “something”.

    Yeah, when the narcolepsy follows you around my guess is the odds are you’re doing work good enough to be targeted as a person of interest. Such might have been the case with a fellow South Dakotan compatriot of yours, the late Slim Spurling who was reputed to have been an expert at devising talisman for warding off EMFs. If you know anyone proficient in the hermetic arts you might want to explore such articles for personal protection.

    Get off the sweet drinks, period. You’ll hear no lectures from me on the hazards of carcinogenic and excitotoxic sweeteners; I’m guessing by your, I know, I know, that you already know. How about squeezed lemon or lime in structured water, with or without stevia, more specifically “Nature’s Stevia”(I have no vested interest in this company). How about Kombucha. Make your own. Do you drink coffee? Be aware that most coffee is contaminated with fungi in varying degrees and that despite the short lived caffeine boost these mycotoxins are systemic and will cause brain fog. There is an expensive alternative by one Dave Asprey who has a 3 fold remedy for the coffee drinker that gives them extraordinary alertness. One of the three components is a raw coconut oil extract MCT, I believe lauric acid, that has 18 times the concentration of top quality raw coconut oil. Learn more at bulletproofexec.com (again, no personal vested interest). An interview is also available.

    The ketogenic pathway with its absence of insulin in the metabolic manufacturing of ketones sourced in healthy dietary fat and is a preferred energetic pathway via the Krebs Cycle. Veritable brain food. The new wisdom says a greater proportion of quality dietary fat should in equal measure shrink carbohydrate consumption, thereby taking up a bigger slice of the protein-fat-carbs nutritional pie chart.

    Stretch for a few minutes every hour and take walks twice a day.

    Get off the breads. I love bread but the commonly used grains are not our friend. Our wheat has been corrupted and even oatmeal and barley are suspect. Instead eat sprouted grain bread for superior nutrition, digestibility and a lower glycemic index. Try substituting grains in cooked meals with quinoa, amaranth and spelt.

    I’ve heard researchers say the collective electromagnetic soup is 20,000 fold stronger now than 25 years ago. And besides, “Smart Meters”, HAARP and GWEN and assorted ELF goodies how about the eponymous Lilly Wave (pioneer researcher John Lilly) a behavior modification wave piped into our house current for decades already. The cumulative effect of dirty electricity is not to be underestimated.

        My pleasure.

        This site is a mixed blessing, isn’t it? If we were to explore all the info provided here by the various contributors we’d never have time for anything else. At least that’s how it is for me.

  19. And looking at a electronic reasons as wrote on this subject television watching itself. Thou staying up late into night like I do doesn’t help. I go to sleep anytime of the day morning through evening while watching the television never or almost never while at the computer.

    This narcolepsy phenomenon was predicted by Clif High as far back as 2009. In his reports, he said there will be ‘sleep pattern disturbances’ which will creep through the populace. He claims that it is caused by the energies from space. This will lead to a lot of accidents in workplaces as well as in transportation. He has talked of this from time to time in his interviews and in his latest report, he said that MSM will be discussing the global sleep pattern interruptions. The sleep problems will be so bad that accidents go up by about 50%. They are a precursor to other phenomena. Clif calls it the sun disease or solar looniness and we’ll be seeing strange emotional turmoil in people. He talks of people stopping in the middle of the road, drooling. Other people have to come along and take them back to the safety of the pavement. It also causes people to go amok as well as aberrant sexual behaviour.

  21. Robert Barricklow

    There is probably not an answer; but a myriad of answers. A cocktail if you will. And I wouldn’t put “targeted” out of that cocktail. In fact, “it” probably depends on a “base” from which to work its magic. So this narcolepsic punch is more than likely a one(pharms)-two(frequencies) type of delivery punch to bring about its effect. Throw in the chemtrails and your body/mind trying to cleanse-out said anomalies…?
    Very puzzling indeed.

    1. Robert, your assumption that it’s a cocktail is accurate. But the two biggest elephants currently in the room are GeoEngineering (spraying) and HAARP.

      Many folks are under the notion that the Alaskan HAARP facility has shut down. Not so! It has only gone dark, now within the loving hands of DARPA.

      Please watch this HAARP refresher video, with Jeane Manning and Begich. Brought out in 1997 when the Alaskan facility first came online, hasn’t lost its poignancy. Imagine the exponential growth this savage machine of science has seen since then.

      The preamble in the video states:

      The late Carl Sagan said, “We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We’ve also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

      Please excuse the mindless defending lunatics (scientists), for they know not what they do!

        1. Begich on HAARP – Weather & Mind Control

          Recent, European presentation. You must listen ALL THE WAY THROUGH to the end.

          Nick Begich, “The human mind has no firewalls. There is no privacy. Ultimately the domain of the human mind, is in fact the target of U.S. military. We become more transparent while government becomes more opaque.

          These technologies are about suppressing truth and humankind. The military is not known for any high human affairs except killing each other. It’s the wrong group to be controlling ‘science’.

          What makes governments so powerful across the globe is their command and control of high science, yet those at the helm of government are scientifically illiterate.”

          The military is worse yet…they simply don’t care!

  22. Sleep as fixing something:

    Google the terms: “Brain Cleaning Sleep”.

    One result of many: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/sleep-allows-brain-wash-out-junk

    There’s garbage in food. There’s garbage out-gassing from plywood, and plastic cases. Without even the idea of directed weapons, there be EM smog. Latex paint out-gasses for months after application–it’s a known depressant. Tobacco is processed with all sorts of extras.

    Then there’s normal pollution like hydrocarbons generated from burning.

    So all sorts of reasons to sleep and clean the brain, and some of these extras have vastly increased over just the last 25 years–cellphone EM disturbing the aether is a good example.

    Then of course: The body, including the brain, and aura, are interlaced with acupuncture meridians and things like marma points, which all feed back on each other in complex and oft times unknown ways.
