Albert Einstein Relativity 4 Engineeers

Einstein Intelligence Quiz from French Girl

The Little French Girl sent me this Einstein Intelligence Quiz. Albert Einstein said that only 2% of the people on the planet can solve it. The top 2% have an IQ of over 132. At that IQ, they can be an eminent professor or editor. This 15 year old girl said that it was very easy for her.

I did not find it to be easy. But her father is a doctor in a hospital and her mother is a lawyer, so she is brilliant. It uses an ambiguous word that can have different meanings and cause people to fail to figure it out. I asked people on the internet what this word meant and got 3 different answers. They said that 'first' can be on left, right or either one. So I tell you what the word means in this quiz and correct the mistake that Einstein made. The first house is the one on the left side in this quiz.

Einstein wrote this quiz last century. He said that 98% of the people in the world cannot solve the quiz.

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors.
In each house lives a person with a different nationality.

These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet.

No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

Here's the question: Who owns the fish? 
  1. The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk
  2. The Norwegian lives in the first house ( the house on the left end)
  3. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house 
  4. The green house owner drinks coffee 
  5. The green house is on the left of the white house 
  6. The Brit lives in a red house 
  7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill 
  8. The man who keeps horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill 
  9. The Swede keeps dogs as pets 
  10. The Dane drinks tea 
  11. The person who smokes Pall Mall has birds
  12. The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer 
  13. The German smokes Prince 
  14. The man who smokes Blend lives next door to the one who keeps cats. 
  15. The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water 
With these 15 clues the problem is solvable. Here are some suggestions. Draw 5 squares or boxes across a paper to represent the houses. At the top of the box, you can put in the color. Under that you can put nationality. Under that put in beverage and so on. At the point where it gets hard and you cannot do it step by step, then you use elimination like in Sudoku. You figure out which of the 5 cannot go in there. When you eliminate 4, then the 5th one is your answer. Good luck! High intelligence can be applied to get a higher paying job or to set you up in your own money making business. With the latter, you can be your own boss.

Fasting is the Ultimate Diet

 From Fasting Boosts Your Immune System Click on picture to get a bigger copy that is easier to read.

This is a copy from another one of my blogs.

The above heading is the name of a best-selling book by Allan Cott, M.D. (©1975). So this page will have info about using the fasting diet, lemonade detox diet, lemonade diet, master cleanse, fasting to lose weight the fastest way, but will also have info on using it for health, cleansing and detoxification. This webpage has quotes from 23 different MDs (3 of them are psychiatrists-- Cott, Cousins and Nikolayev). On the cover of the above book it has a quote from The New England Journal of Medicine-- "Fasting is a valid experience. It can benefit any otherwise healthy person whose calories now have the upper hand in his/her life."

Here is how fasting works. The body takes in toxins (pesticides, pollutants etc.) and produces metabolic waste everyday. Most of this comes from the food we eat. Everyday the body is also cleansing itself of toxins and metabolic wastes. If the body is taking in more than it is getting rid of, then it gets backed up with these toxins and waste. At this point many health problems and diseases can develop. With fasting your body has a chance to cleanse more than it takes in and get rid of this backlog of toxins.

This book says "most people can fast safely for a whole month or longer. Our body gives the signal when it is time to end the fast." Dr Cott says "When anyone abstains totally from food, profound changes take place. These changes revise attitudes about food and put appetite into alignment with the body's real need for energy." The lemonade diet is also good for this.

The body is brilliant. It knows what it is doing and how to heal itself. It is your choice of foods and how much you eat that makes you fat. Your body is trying its best to make your body healthy and thin. That is its only purpose, while you have many other purposes like money, entertainment, enjoyment and other people. Fasting makes the brain work better, making you smarter (see Dr Cousins below). Some of this website was put up during fasting. This is the miracle of fasting.

Some people are concerned about their metabolism slowing down when they are fasting. But this makes it so that thin people can fast a long time. Also the fatter you are, the less it slows down. The body is slowing down the use of your extra calories so that you have enough to finish the fast. Again, the body is not against you but is out to help you. When you fast, you are placing all of your trust in your body's intelligence which has billions of years of evolutionary experience. When doing a religious fast, people place their faith in God to take care of them, instead of their own eating habits.

Also for this reason of conserving calories, it is more comfortable to fast in warm weather than in cold weather. The body is not looking to make you more uncomfortable in cold weather but to make sure that you have enough calories to finish the fast. With fat people it knows it does not have to conserve calories, so it does not slow down. As soon as people start eating again, it speeds back up to normal. After a couple of days of fasting, your body produces ketones which is the most powerful appetite suppressant there is. Since the body is brilliant, if it finds that you have lots of diseased and poorly formed muscle, it will eat that first. It knows that it is stupid to make you thin and beautiful and then just let you die. Fasting is God's or nature's bloodless operating table.

Why Fast

Gabriel Cousins, M.D., (psychiatrist) says "I often observe in the fasting participants that by four days of fasting, concentration seems to improve, creative thinking expands, depression lifts, insomnia stops, anxieties fade, the mind becomes more tranquil and a natural joy begins to appear. It is my hypothesis that when the physical toxins are cleared from the brain cells, mind-brain function automatically and significantly improves and spiritual capacities expands." Sleeping while on a fast is very rejuvenating.

Here are a few reasons given by Dr Cott: "To lose weight the quickest and fastest way, to save money, to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, to sleep better, to digest food better, to save time, to regulate bowels, to learn better eating habits, to get more out of sex and to call attention to social issues." There are many more benefits. Fasting is the most effective way to kill unwanted parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Dr Cott says "the rate at which you lose weight is generally in proportion to the degree you are overweight. Most people who fast for a week can expect to lose up to 20 pounds." "But when you fast, it is not unusual to lose 4 or 5 pounds the first day and up to 10 pounds in 2 days." The general rule is that fat people lose weight at a faster rate than thin people during a fast. Dr Cott says (page 57) "But Dr. George F. Cahill, Jr., of the Harvard Medical School, has noted that 'man's survival [of long abstention from food] is predicated upon a remarkable ability to conserve the relatively limited body protein stores while utilizing fat as the primary energy-producing food.' "

Most of this weight you lose, at first, is water so it is safe, unlike losing weight that is body fat.  During the first 5 days of the fast, the body dumps all its excess salt that caused you to retain tons of water. See "water weight" on home page for full story on this and  on how you can avoid gaining back that water weight. But the body's intelligence determines what it should consume first, when fasting. It may determine that it should eat diseased tissue or muscle before eating fat. Also since the body is eating itself, it is the best thing for the immune system. It can eat or consume infected tissue or muscle.

Prescription for Natural Healing by James Balch M.D. and Phyllis Balch CNC says "Fasting is an effective and safe method of detoxifying the body...A technique that wise men have used for centuries to heal the sick. Fast regularly and help the body heal itself and stay well. Give all of your organs a rest. Fasting can help reverse the aging process, and if we use it correctly we will live longer, happier lives. 
Each time you complete a fast, you will feel better. Your body will have a chance to heal and rebuild its immune system by regularly fasting [a major benefit]. You can fight off illness and the degenerative diseases so common in this chemically polluted environment we live in. When you feel a cold or illness coming on or are just depressed-- fast!" That is why you lose your appetite-- your body is telling you to stop eating.

Alex Carrel, M.D. (famous scientist) says "The elimination of waste products by fasting increases longevity." Patricia Bragg says "Fasting is not starving. It's nature's cure that God has given us.... I fast every Monday and the first 3 days of each month; it's a precious time of body-mind-soul cleansing and renewal."

Dangers of Fasting

If your fast is sepervised by an expert, he will make sure that you are aware of these dangers. The most common danger with fasting comes from the blood pressure going down during a fast. It is easy to get up too fast from lying down and pass out or faint and break your head open. So you must always get up slowly. About 1 out of 100 people get potassium levels that are too low after 14 days of fasting. This can result in death so when the supervisor sees this, he stops the fast immediately. Then there is also a danger in breaking the long fast with the wrong food.

Health Benefits of Fasting

Elson M Haas M.D. says on his website "Fasting is the single greatest healing therapy.... When I first discovered fasting, 15 years ago, I felt as if it had saved my life and transformed my illness into health.... I believe fasting is the 'missing link' in the western diet." Andrew Weil, M.D. says "I can tell you that your digestive system will benefit from even one day of a total fast (when you consume only water or herbal tea). At one time, I experimented with fasting one day a week as a useful physical and psychological discipline. Many people experience a clearer mental state and increased energy after a short-term fast."

According to a guy who has fasted 40,000 people, Herbert M. Shelton (DC, ND) says in his 400 page book, The Science and Fine Art of Fasting(©1978), "Fasting must be recognized as a fundamental and radical process that is older than any other mode of caring for the sick organism, for it is employed on the plane of instinct and has been employed since life was first introduced upon the earth. Fasting is nature's own method of ridding the body of 'diseased tissues,' excess nutriment and accumulations of waste and toxins.

Nothing else will increase elimination through every channel of excretion as will fasting." "Fasting enables the processes of renewal to outdistance the processes of degeneration and the result is a higher standard of health....By fasting we may actually tear down much of the body and rebuild it." President Lincoln declared "Therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln,President of the United States, do appoint the last Thursday in September next, as a day of humiliation, prayer and fasting for all the people of the nation." Apparently at that time "humiliation" meant to have more humility or be more humble.

Joel Fuhrman, M.D. (has fasting center in NJ) says (in his book shown at the bottom of this page) "In my practice I have seen fasting eliminate lupus and arthritis, remove chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, heal the digestive tract in patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, and quickly eliminate cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure and angina. In these cases the recoveries were permanent." His amazing book on fasting is the best to learn about healing serious chronic health problems including migraine headaches.

John Tilden, M.D., who fasted thousands of people in his Denver center, said "I must say in all seriousness that fasting when combined with a properly selected diet is the nearest approach to a 'cure-all' that is possible to conceive-- profoundly simple and simply profound!"

Hereward Carrington, M.D. wrote a book called Vitality, Fasting and Nutrition. He says "fasting is a scientific method of ridding the system of diseased tissues, and morbid matter, and is invariably accompanied by beneficial results....The whole secret is this: fasting commences with the omission of the first meal and ends with the return of natural hunger, while starvation only begins with the return of natural hunger and terminates in death." Natural hunger is the body saying that it is time to stop the fast. 

Charles Page, M.D. says "The fasting cure universally and rationally applied, would save thousands of lives every year." A prominent German physician, Adolph Mayer, M.D. says, in a book entitled Fast Cures--Wondercures: "I assert that fasting is the most efficient means for correcting any disease." Von Seeland, M.D., a Russian physician, says "As a result of experiments, I have come to the conclusion that fasting is not only a therapeutic agent of the highest degree possible but also deserves consideration educationally."

Ron Kennedy, M.D. says "Fasting creates a condition of low concentration of toxic wastes in the circulatory system. This is sensed by the plasma membrane of each cell and each cell will then let go of its load of toxic wastes. When this happens suddenly, as it does with fasting, the result can be a sudden case of mild systemic toxemia as the system cleanses itself. Those who fast must be prepared for a phase of headache, irritability, insomnia and fatigue. This is a natural part of the healing process and should be welcomed." Also he says "The purpose of the religious fast is the purification of the soul and the preparation to receive atonement of sins."

Dr. Charles Goodrich of the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, who has fasted many times said "People don't realize that the chief obstacle to fasting is overcoming the cultural, social and psychological fears of going without food. These fears are ingrained. . . .However, fasting is not starving, not even in a medical sense or the natural sense."

Evarts Loomis MD says "For some it can be a time of self-discovery, a time to stop playing a role and to begin living the real person. Thus, it can be a time for releasing the ego and discovering the Transpersonal Self." "Surely one of the most overlooked and yet most valuable modes of healing that will be rediscovered in the future of the new medicine is the fast.

Michael R. Eades, M.D. says "Like caloric restriction, intermittent fasting reduces oxidative stress, makes the animals more resistant to acute stress in general, reduces blood pressure, reduces blood sugar, improves insulin sensitivity, reduces the incidence of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, and improves cognitive ability."

From this websiteMichael M. Segal, MD, PhDsays "The pre-fast meal doesn't have be bland. Spices such as lemon or herbs are fine for fasting, but salt and monosodium glutamate should be reduced as much as possible." "People with medical conditions such as diabetes should consult their doctors and rabbis before fasting."

From this website. Donald E Colbert MD says "Fasting is another method of detoxification that I recommend frequently. Fasting allows the body to heal by giving it a rest. Fasting gives the digestive tract a much-needed rest, which in turn allows the overburdened liver to 'catch up' on its detoxification work." From this website.

Dr. Yuri Nikolayev, director of the fasting unit of the Moscow Psychiatric Institute, reported on the use of scientific, therapeutic fasting to successfully treat over 10,000 patients, all suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders like schizophrenia and various neuroses, concluding: "The hunger treatment [as Soviet psychiatrists term fasting] gives the entire nervous system and the brain a rest. The body is also cleansed of poisons, and the tissues and the various glands are renovated."

Joel Fuhrman, M.D. says in his book "There are hundreds of journal articles in the medical literature documenting the value of fasting in improving the function of the entire body including brain [cites studies]. Fasting has been repeatedly observed to alleviate neurosis, anxiety and depression."

"I had a medical practice for 20 years in NYC, supervised hundreds of long fasts, and I found that the physical healing or weight loss was but a pleasant side effect. What really happened is that the person got in touch with their higher self, their true self, and came to the experience that healing can take place at every level, simply by letting go and allowing Mother Nature to do her work"-- Dr. Rai Casey

The book What is a Jew by Rabbi Morris N. Kertzer (© 1993) says that fasting has 4 purposes: mourning, self-denial, petition and penitence. The 2 most famous Jews did fasting and prayer for 40 days-- Jesus and Moses. The movie, Exodus (1960) with Paul Newman, is about a true story of Jews in a detention camp in Cyprus in 1947 who had just gotten out of a concentration camp. They got on a ship so they could go to Palestine right before it became Israel.

But there was a blockade keeping them from leaving. It was a major world news event. So the Jews decided to fast until they would let them through. They got rid of all food on the ship. A woman with a baby was told that she should leave the ship, since it is not safe for a baby to fast. She said that she would rather have her and her baby die, instead of going back to Cypress so she stayed on the ship. After a few days of fasting, they let them through. The mother and baby started a new life in Israel. 

Socrates and Plato fasted regularly for 10 days at a time. Pythagoras fasted 40 days before taking an examination at the University of Alexandria. Hippocrates used fasting on patients. Philippus Paracelsus, a Swiss physician and one of the 3 fathers of Western Medicine (including also Hippocrates and Galen), said "Fasting is the greatest remedy-- the physician within." The bible has 74 references to fasting. When someone fasts for religious reasons, he still gets the physical benefits. When someone fasts for physical benefits, he still gets the spiritual benefits. Dr Jordan Rubin (NMD) calls fasting "a miracle of God."

Mohammed, Mahatma Gandhi and Mark Twain were avid fasters. Mark Twain says "A little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors. I do not mean a restricted diet; I mean total abstinence from food for one or two days. I speak from experience; starvation has been my cold and fever doctor for 15 years, and has accomplished a cure in all instances." Animals also fast when sick or injured. When you have a cold or flu, that is a great time to fast since you already feel bad and you lack a sense of taste and smell. See the page on colds and flus.

Dr Cott's book says "Another very obese man, who wanted to be ' a human being again,' fasted for 14 consecutive weekends. Then he fasted one day a week for 9 months. Over the year's time he cut his weight exactly in half, going from 360 to 180 pounds."

Also this book says "A posthospitalization questionnaire was sent to 709 obese individuals who had fasted at the University of Pennsylvania hospital [currently one of the top 10 hospitals in the country], whose pioneer fasting program was supervised by Dr. Garfield G. Duncan. Of the 50 percent who responded, approximately 46 percent had continued to lose weight, and 21 percent had remained at the reduced level at which they had completed their fast."

People think that they need to eat regularly to keep their blood sugar constant. But a healthy body does that even when you are not eating at all.
A woman I was talking to said that she could not fast because she had hypoglycemia (fasting blood sugar level too low). I told her that it was rare and when the body goes into a fasting mode it is common to have the same symptoms like headaches etc. Similar to how when a smoker stops smoking or an alcoholic stops drinking. In the fasting mode the body is getting rid of toxins at an accelerated rate and some of them have to go back into the blood before the body gets rid of it.

With different people it takes different amounts of time for the body to go into the fasting mode. I told her the way to tell when your body goes into a fasting mode, the mouth becomes like an organ of elimination and your tongue gets coated, like when you get sick. Later she wrote me and said that I sure knew my stuff. She had gone most of the day without eating and got those symptoms. She looked in the mirror and saw that her tongue was coated. I used to get those same symptoms if I went too long without eating. But after I started fasting that stopped happening. Fasting is nature's bloodless operating table. It gives the entire digestive system a vacation or rest.

Lemonade Diet

Also called Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet or Lemonade Fast

The fasts talked about in this are therapeutic fasts with only pure water. Many trying a fast prefer to try the Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet created byStanley Burroughs (not spelled Borroughs). His book from 1976 is at the bottom of this page. Elson M Haas, M.D. says "Ever since I did my 10 day Master Cleanser back in 1975, I do it every spring with a group of 20 or 30 people at my office. It is such a profound experience."

On the Oprah Winfrey Show, Beyonce Knowles announced that she lost 20 pounds in 10 days for the movie, Dream Girls from the lemonade detox diet. Also Robin QuiversHoward Stern's assistant, lost 73 pounds from doing the master cleanse lemonade diet 3 times (218 down to 145). She said after losing that weight "I never felt this good about my body before" according to People Magazine. She heard about it from the famous magician, David Blaine.

You can drink lemonade, instead of water, throughout the entire day (6 to 10 glasses). It has almost all the benefits as water fasting except for the benefits for serious health problems like cardiovascular disease. Only water fasting can reduce hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), which causes high blood pressure according to Dr Fuhrman who has studied the recent medical research on fasting. For some people, just losing weight will lower blood pressure and the master cleanse is great for weight loss, like for the prom.

Peter Glickman has coached more than 500 people on the lemonade diet. He says the following: "I would estimate it [lemonade fast] to be nearly as powerful as water fasting." "It is probably the second most powerful (read that as the fastest) way to detoxify the body. Only a water fast is more powerful." "The most current, visible American MD who is a major proponent of fasting is Dr Joel Fuhrman. He has numerous successes curing diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease." Peter says that pregnant and nursing women should not do the master cleanser since the toxins could make their way to the baby.

With the lemonade diet recipe, you add 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (preferably grade B) and one tenth tablespoon (or to your taste) of cayenne pepper to a glass of water. To modify the lemonade diet recipe ingredients some people take cayenne capsules or put it in a shot glass of water so it is not in their lemonade. Some who do not like maple syrup have had the same results using 2 tablespoons of raw agave nectar (see Health Food Store link below). Make sure that it is pure water, not tap water. See the webpage about that. To make a half gallon of it, just multiply the ingredients by 8.

I saw on a site where a guy did this Master Cleanse for 12 days. But before that the doctor said his blood pressure was 200/120. He fasted 21 days on pure water and it dropped down to 130/80. Since this webpage shows that you can fast on pure water, then if you get sick of drinking the lemonade (like some do), you can just consume pure water.

Avoid the salt water flush (SWF) where you are supposed to drink salt water which will then come out a half hour later where solid waste comes out. This is very unhealthy for you. The reason that it passes right through you, without you digesting it, is because it is toxic for you to digest it. (The same thing would happen if you put dish washing liquid in a quart of water and drank it.) This is why many complain that it tastes terrible and makes them feel sick and want to vomit.

See home page under Losing Water Weight for more info on why salt is bad for you. This is a bad thing about the lemonade diet. Instead you can do nothing or take an enema.

Newspaper articles say that the lemonade diet is bad since you have to stay near the bathroom. Skip the SWF and you only need to be near the bathroom when you break the fast and your colon will work great. When I did the SWF it worked but I felt sick so my body did digest some of it. Some say that it did not work for them, meaning that their body digested all of it. I am constantly seeing many complaints about this on forums. Some have said that they vomit up the SWF when they drink it. Some, who it did not work for, say that they gained 5 pounds that day. Even if it does work, some of the salt may get digested.

A fast gives the colon a vacation helping it more than anything else ever can, since it is always the body that heals itself. Dr Herbert Shelton fasted 40,000 people. The first 6,000 were given enemas. Then he realized that there was no need to do anything about the colon. The enema does not hurt the person but it disturbs the vacation of the large intestine (colon) during the fast. The rest were not given enemas. Note that it did take him 6,000 people to realize he and many of the other master fasters before him were mistaken.

So maybe with a little more experience, Mr Burroughs would have learned that with his lemonade diet. Modern medicine teaches that the colon is outside the body proper. For something to get from the normal digestive tract into the body proper, it must pass through the liver first.

A woman with a blog read about this lemonade diet on my website. She did it for 3 days and lost 5 pounds. Rudolph Ballentine M.D. says not to do juice fasts for more than 3 days without supervision but many people do the above fast 21 days and sometimes 40 days without supervision. One guy gave a testimonial about how he fasted with only water and had a tough time from lots of cleansing symptoms. Then he tried the lemonade diet and had no problems so he says that it is much better than the water fast.

This information about the lemonade diet shows the cause of so much confusion. The difference was in him, not the fast. He must have been eating healthier foods since that water fast, which caused him to have an easier time with the lemonade diet. Under his testimonial was another one where a woman said that her first 3 days on the master cleanse lemonade diet were HORRIBLE but after that is was fine. This is also the hardest time of a water fast due to the rapid detoxification of the body.

Peter says that you could have headaches, rashes, tiredness, irritability and vomiting from the lemonade fast. The fast (includes water fast) gives your intestines a vacation or rest. When you start eating, they then work better than ever. You could do an enema on the first day or not do one. It cleans out all that stuff. This works fine with the lemonade diet.

Here is an actual story that took place August 2008. A 39 year old woman was on medication for high blood pressure. She got on the lemonade diet or lemonade fast after seeing my webpage on it. She monitored her blood pressure and reduced her medication until she was off of it completely. By the 15th day of the fast, her blood pressure was 106/79. That is a pulse pressure of 27! See page on high blood pressure for what pulse pressure is.


With either fast you do, you should use pure water like distilled or purified water, not tap, filtered or spring water. See pure water page for more on this. Joel Fuhrman, M.D. says not to fast if you are on any medications. Dr Cott and Dr Fuhrman says that you should consult a doctor before beginning a short fast and long fasts must be done under the supervision and guidance of a doctor, where they may let you use a medication if you need it. Here is the list of professional fasters that supervise fasts (www.iahp.net).

These people are skilled with different problems that can come up during a fast. Dr Fuhrman says that the most common problem is getting up too fast while lying down and passing out which can cause injury. This never happens with his patience since he warns them of it. Second most common problem is 1 out of 100 have too little potassium after 14 days or more of fasting and he ends the fast since this is a serious condition.

You are forced to fast everyday when you sleep so it is a natural thing. I did short fasts and built up to an 11 day fast. Then I did a 22 day fast on my own. Before getting into fasting, I ate nothing but grapes (conventional not organic, even though organic is better) for 11 days and got a lot of benefits from that due to a lot of detoxification. The webpage on depression has more information on fasting helping depression. Master Cleanser  Whole Raw Food Snacks

Detoxifying With Fruit and Juice Fasting

I know someone who fasts on water for a week before the change of the season following an ancient Egyptian practice. He also will eat only fruit and nothing else for a month. So this is a good way to detoxify your but you choose how long you want to do it for. You can also do it with one kind of fruit like grapes. You eat as much grapes as you want but nothing else.

I have a whole book about this called The Grape Cure which has been used to treat cancer successfully. This should be used for cancer instead of fasting. There is a group that does juice fasting. Here are testimonials from that. New York oncologist Kathryn MacKenzie, M.D. said "I feel perfect, with lots of energy every day. I'm very grateful for your help. You are terrific! God bless you for your wonderful Fasting Program. I feel like a new person again! Thank you so much!"

Chicago orthopedic surgeon David Bracken, M.D. said "I found incredible energy and focus, while on the fast. Now, even off the fast, I do more in a day than I used to do in a week! That's no exaggeration. I lost 56 lbs. on the fast, and presently weigh what I weighed in high school while on the wrestling team."

This group uses a mixture of fruit and vegetable juices for their juice fast that are nutritionally balanced for juice fasts up to 4 months long. People can continue working their jobs and they can safely do it without in-house supervision with this juice fast. I would call this a very healthy liquid diet but by calling it a juice fast, they can use quotes from people talking about a water fast. The Master Cleanse people do the same thing but then they both say bad things about the water fast which was done by Moses and Jesus.

When they throw in a quote from someone talking about a water fast it sounds like they are talking about their kind of fast. I am not fond of deception (trickery). They can still claim that they did not lie. If I were talking about water fasts and threw in the 2 above quotes you would not know that they were talking about juice fasts. No information is available on what they use in their juice diets since to do it you must pay them and buy a juice mix from them. That is good business.

Medical Student Gets Adverse Reaction to Flu Shot

Click on images to make them larger. This medical student, Alexis, got an adverse reaction from the flu vaccine. She stresses that the flu in it is dead. But I say that the ingredients in it are not healthy. Alexis is 22 years old and in her fourth year of medical school. It is average for someone to go to medical school from age 23 to age 27.

She could have gone to college at age 12 because she is a super genius but her parents thought that was too young. She has many interesting things happen to her. You can read the details and what she says about this at Unfortunate Reactions to Vaccines.

I have not had a cold, flu or headache in over 15 years. That probably is partially because of the meditation that do since illness and headaches have to do with stress. I have been reading this blog for a while. Doing this makes you more like the person who wrote the blog. So now I want to write about personal things like Alexis does in her blog.

I came across the article called Flu Shots are More Dangerous Than the Flu Itself, According to New Research. Now I think this article is not very good. It says that people get sick after getting the vaccine but does not explain how. People get sick after not getting a vaccine. Then it says that there are bad things in it.

But it ignores that there are many bad things elsewhere. Like according to studies mentioned by Michael Greger M.D. a half a can of tuna has the amount of mercury (mentioned in article) that is in 100 flu shots (vaccines). It says many doctors are against the flu vaccine but does not give any examples. I did not read the whole article because the beginning was so bad. It makes no mention of an author so I guess that it means it was written by the almighty Lord. Also it lacked links to other sources.

When I was around age 20 many interesting things happened to me. I learned a meditation that is taught by Prem Rawat. Now every person has their own experience of the same thing and it can be very negative but here is what I experienced. Of course it is partially determined by the person.

Prem Rawat from book about him sold by Amazon.com

The following is long but very interesting. During that time they built a JYC near me about 10 minutes away from where I lived and I was 20 years old. JYC is like a YMCA but this one was for Jewish people, hence its name Jewish Youth Center. When I first got there, there was a line of people that would run, jump onto a mini-trampoline kind of springboard and do a flip or something and land on a thick mat so they would not get hurt.

So I watched for 10 minutes and people were encouraging me to try it. I was the only gymnast of the group. I had been captain of my high school gymnastics team. I did a pike flip where my legs are completely straight and I was instantly a celebrity. 

Now things are different when it came to what happened. There were many beautiful young women there. There was one who was very beautiful, dressed like a fashion model and was very intelligent and well spoken. Also she made it clear that I was the one that she wanted and she gets what she wants. Although she was only 14. So on our first date I met her family that consisted of her father, mother and older sister.

They loved me and also they wanted their daughter to have what she wanted. So she became my girlfriend but we did not break any laws. She danced and sang in many plays. Her one flaw was she was somewhat conceited because she knew how great she was. But I was probably like that also.

Then they started a girls gymnastic team. I went into the gymnastics room and was watching these little girls. There was one female coach and everyone would spend all of their time waiting for one minute with the coach. Keep in mind that we all regarded each other as God's chosen people.

So I would get the ones that had to wait for the line and would teach them something. So they got the time with the coach but also got time practicing other things. I had experience teaching kids gymnastics at a summer camp. So the coach loved having active kids instead of bored kids and the kids loved it also. They knew I was not being paid so they knew that I was doing it for the fun of it. Also the coach liked me so much that when the team got its labeled team leotards she said to the girls and I that she should give me one of the leotards so everyone would know that I was part of its team.

To show you that it was not all good times, I had to battle boredom also. Prem Rawat was going to speak in Montreal, Canada so a bus with a bathroom was rented to go from Philadelphia to Montreal which takes about 11 hours. I had just learned meditation so my ability to be in the present was not very good. So that 11 hours was quite an ordeal. But it led to something great which makes this much more interesting reading.

The name of this weekend program in Montreal was Peace Flight. I was taking a walk around the bus to relieve boredom. I saw this couple that I never saw before where the wife was about 3 years older than me and she was drop dead gorgeous. Since I had nothing to gain or lose I told her exactly how I felt. At first I was cautious but saw that the husband was enjoying what I was saying and so I said lots of things including that she was the most attractive woman I had ever seen.

So that was the end of that for while. But later on, this woman, Reenie Hanson, and I became friends. I am very good at adapting to the present circumstances. Her husband found a different meditation teacher that was named Buba Free John.

Buba Free John and later called Adi Da.

We ended up becoming best friends while her husband and her were still married. I did not have a physical attraction to her and I forgot to mention that they have a daughter. Renee and I were really great friends. She thought that I was the nicest and kindest person that she had ever met.

Here is an exciting thing we did together. We flew to Rome, Italy where Prem Rawat had a five day program. We shared a hotel room. The husband took care of their little girl. Now this story is like the most impossible thing that ever happened. Reenie was telling me about a 17 year old sister that became mostly catatonic.

She would watch TV and pet the cat and not do anything else. I cannot believe that I never told this story before, meaning writing it down. I guess it took a while for Alexis to bring it out of me. If you are a writer, you definitely should read her blog. Now Reenie's family lived in Delaware. The mother took the daughter to a psychiatrist. He said that she should be committed to a mental institution. There they could give her electroshock for the fun of it.

So I said that I should try to help her first. Now Prem Rawat was having a rare 10 day program in Florida. Renee and I got a ride with an Indian couple that lives in Delaware. They stopped in Delaware on the way back and Reenie lied to her mother and told her that we needed a place to stay in Delaware for a day. We convinced the daughter to come to Philadelphia and stay at Reenie's house for a week.

I was at her house everyday, all day for a week. It was extremely hard at first to get her to open up but eventually I did it and she got all better. Now I did not know what I was doing and that is where my awesome power lied. See other people imagine they know what they are doing and what do they actually know? They know that they were born and they will die. They do not know why they were born, what they are doing here or what this whole thing is all about.

To give a break to psychiatrists, it is a job to make money. They cannot spend all day with a patient. Nevada is the only state in the country that prostitution is legal. It is illegal in Las Vegas. So a prostitute can be paid to spend all day with a client. But you cannot pay the prostitute to care about you. Of course she does care about the money.

So what does Albert Einstein say about this?

To end on a light note, the girls team had a nickname for me. It was Spider-Man. Outside the gym they had a pair of walls that were about 4 feet apart and went up about 25 feet. I would put a hand and foot on each wall. I would then use that to climb up the wall. Then at top I would climb across and go down.

Here on video is something else that did. I would get down, the same way I got up. I loved climbing. Watch this one minute video where the guy knows how to climb up but not how to get down. So he falls and gets badly injured. But you can climb down the same way you get up.

So I am still looking for video of what I would do. I found a short video of what I would do. It is only 41 seconds.

So this is why they called me Spider-Man. Now never do the following. I could have killed this girl and myself. So I was doing it again to show them I could still do it. This is a bizarre story. One of the girls said loudly that she wanted me to take her for a ride. I said "definitely not." She begged me to take her and then all the other girls shouted for me to do it.

So I agreed to do it because they kept begging me, even though it was dangerous and foolish. So this small and light girl climbed on my back and I took her to the top. Then with my hands firmly in place, I took my feet off the wall and started kicking and yelling like I lost control. The girls below were screaming. Then I kept going and no girl asked for a ride again.

I got to the ground safe and sound, at least I thought. Then a girl said my head was bleeding. I felt my head and had blood on my hand. There was a sprinkler on the ceiling and I must have hit my head against it without knowing it. So I went to the hospital and got a few stitches put in. So my mother's favorite saying was "Truth is stranger than fiction!"

Want to hear a rabbit sing? Actually this is a song by Eddie Rabbitt on how to get a woman. I had a girlfriend that graduated from Wellesley U.  She said that females over 18 should be called women.

Also here is a short video on how to get a girlfriend that is very intelligent and not sleazy.

I forgot how to access the profile part of my blog so I will put this here for now.

Alexis Got Her Leg Broken at Her Medical School by the Teacher

UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay Consistently ranked among the nation's top medical schools, the UCSF School of Medicine earns its greatest distinction from its outstanding faculty – among them are four Nobel laureates, 81 National Academy of Medicine members, 64 American Academy of Arts and Sciences members, 41 National Academy of Sciences members, and 19 Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators. [Not specifying the medical school that this happened at. Just highlighting a very good medical school.]

This is an unusual story called Alexis in the Sky With Diamonds. Note that the song by The Beatles called Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds is a reference to LSD. Here is quote from the beginning of the post on this.
I was the victim of a freak accident at the very end of my workday earlier this evening, and now I'm in extreme pain. I didn't bother to fill a prescription for pain meds because I didn't think they would be needed. Suffice it to say that I was wrong. Dead wrong. 
My supervising resident and I were going over charts. My presence isn't really needed in order for him to go over the charts, as the guy does not allow me  to actually write anything in a patient's chart, but he has been unbelievably reluctant to allow me to leave before his workday has finished even though my workday has usually started roughly two hours before his began. He invents work for me so that he can justify making me stay. He asked me to read all of the charts before he made notations and to comment. He then made his notations and asked me to read them. In most cases he wrote down what I said verbatim. The activity was a complete waste of my time. 
For some reason unbeknownst to me, the resident had his laptop in the physicians' computer pod.  Residents don't usually need their personal laptops, but his was there, plugged in and charging. As he was finishing up, he picked up his laptop, apparently forgetting that it was plugged in. The adapter part of the charger flew off the table on which it had been resting. It swung and hit my left lateral malleolus (the wide protuberance of the fibula where it reaches the ankle) very hard and probably, judging from the residual bruise, struck my ankle with one of its edges. It was a relatively flukish occurrence -- probably not even in the top five of flukish accidents involving me, but still a rather freak happening. I don't think the two of us could recreate the mishap with the same outcome if we attempted it a hundred times.
Her ankle was broken. You can read the rest of it. Here is the image where this is from. Please note that the more mindful people are, the less accidents there are. Let us say that a person is acting like a freaking maniac , instead of a calm person, they are more dangerous.  A police officer has to identify the threat quickly because his life is in danger.

Her next post goes into more detail about the damage that she had done. But as you go into more detail on this you learn the advantages of this. They love to make medical students work insane hours so they usually are sleep deprived. So because of the above and damage to knee of her other leg, she is only working 8 hours a day and has plenty of time to sleep.

Also she gets to explain to us this new type of temporary, permanent cast that otherwise, without news about new things, I would not know about leg-lengthening where young women pay to get their legs broken and be a cripple for 2 years to be five inches taller as told about in A Tall Order.

It's painful and slow, but can make you five inches taller. Jonathan Watts on the surgical trend sweeping China - leg-lengthening

Kong Jing-wen has paid £5,700 to have both of her legs broken and stretched on a rack. The pretty college graduate is now lying in bed, clearly still in considerable pain three days after a doctor sawed through the flesh and bone below her knee to insert what looks an awful lot like knitting needles through the length of her tibiae.

These giant steel pins are connected by eight screws punched horizontally through her ankle and calf to a steel cage surrounding each leg. Once the bone starts to heal, these cages will act like a medieval torture device - each day over the next few months Kong will turn the screws a fraction and stretch her limbs more and more until she has grown by 8cm.

Despite the agony, the cost and the inconvenience, the 23-year-old says she does not regret a thing. "It hurts, but it will be worth it to be taller. I'll have more opportunities in life and a better chance of finding a good job and husband."
Also there have to be some benefits to having your teacher at a medical school breaking your leg! Also I have an article about the 2 Biggest Secrets of Life and this fits right in with that.

Also now that she has some extra time, she is watching some Youtube videos. Here is one that placed that I really liked. This young woman is a really bad singer (she posted it on August 12). It shows that the parents have the same problem. So they came on to yell at the judges and Simon tells them that they created their daughter's problem. Priceless.

Then on August 17 she has a post called When the Moon is in the Seventh House that is talking about the temporary cast .  Now hasn't this event given her a lot to write about creating another benefit of this event? I am still not done yet. Apparently she had to keep some of this information secret.

On August 22 she put up the post Unrequited Love and Fisticuffs where the two guys are fighting about milady or my lady. (Milady (from my lady) is a French manner of address to a noble woman, the feminine form of milord.) A friend of hers is telling her teacher off and he takes a swing at this friend. But this guy was able to finish it with one punch. Alexis says:
A cohort mate of mine -- one I had considered a friend though not necessarily a bosom buddy --  returned from a visiting clerkship to learn of my injury. I'm not sure why my cohort mate took my bad news so acutely, but when he met up with the careless resident  (there was more to the story that I wasn't and still am not  free to share), following a heated argument during which the resident threw the first punch, my cohort blocked the jab and responded with a knockdown punch at the resident. I'm told that the response was measured and that my cohort mate could have done far more damage than he chose to do.
So in the end our heroine and writer of the blog wins. Maybe someday she will have the most popular blog there is. Also stay tuned in because you do not know if this story is completely over yet. I am glad that she gets to have some fun.

I forgot how to access the profile part of my blog so I will put this here for now.

Different Types of Genius

This picture comes from the article Six Interesting Musical Facts About Albert Einstein. Seeing this article modified what I was going to write about.

Albert Einstein nicknamed his violin Lina. “As a little girl,” Einstein’s second wife Elsa once remarked, “I fell in love with Albert because he played Mozart so beautifully on the violin. He also plays the piano. Music helps him when he is thinking about his theories. He goes to his study, comes back, strikes a few chords on the piano, jots something down, returns to his study.”

The article above tells about how the musician in his family was his mother. The mother of Alexis has a PhD in music (among other things) and taught her and her twin brother to play piano. As talked about in previous posts, Alexis is a super genius. She could have gone to college at age 12, but her parents did want her going at such a young age.

She did skip some grades and is in her fourth and last year of medical school at age 22. Most people go to medical school at the ages of 23 to 27. Also Alexis is very proficient at playing the piano, organ, violin and other musical instruments. Her father is a medical doctor.

This is going to have a link to an article by Alexis about children playing with dangerous toys and the part that schools should take in controlling them. Also it will have a link to a story of when Alexis was a little girl and did a cartwheel on the roof of her house because her twin brother asked her to.

Here are some coincidences of Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory and Alexis. Sheldon Cooper also has an opposite sex twin. I saw the one introducing her. She mentioned how she had her legs wrapped around Sheldon's neck for 9 months. In September they will have a TV show with Sheldon growing up in Texas as a young boy. Also Sheldon does not drink coffee and neither does Alexis.

So while Albert Einstein was growing up and going to school he seemed just like an average student. Before I forget, here is a link to a recent article by Alexis about kids playing with recent toys. Fidget Spinners Maybe Dangerous. Also her most recent posts are about bullying so they are a must read. Here is the other article, Rooftop Gymnastics. This is great blog post. It is so real.

Now it is my turn. I, like Einstein, showed nothing spectacular in school. After my mother gave birth to me, 2 years later she gave birth to my brother. Her mother was with her every step of the way. So she asked her mother why my brother had so many problems as a baby. She said my brother was a perfectly normal baby.

She said that I was not a normal baby. I apparently skipped over some things that normal babies go threw. When I was in my crib, there was a sign on it that said "Keep me off of my stomach." When I was on my stomach, I would try to crawl and I was too young for my knees to tolerate that. Also I was born in a busy NYC hospital but was the only baby boy.

My mother would take my brother and I to the library every 3 weeks so it was entirely free. We would each leave with about 10 books. My brother and mother read only fiction. I read only non-fiction because I wanted to know things. My uncle was a PhD in chemistry so I wanted to be a chemist also. So I read the simpler books on chemistry until I got up to this current one. I was nine years old and in fourth grade.

So I was reading it outside in front of my house. My college neighbor got home and wanted to know what I was doing with his book. I told him that I borrowed it from the library and showed him the card holder in the back. He told me that he had the same book for college chemistry and many people find it challenging. He learned that I was reading it for the fun of it.

So then he asked me where I was in reading it. I showed him. He asked me some questions to see if I understood what I read. He asked to speak to my mother so I got her. He said that he was freaked out since college students struggle to understand this and I am reading it for entertainment. His world was turned upside down. Now my mother told our relatives about it. She wondered what it all meant with being such an unusual baby and also my Hebrew name that I got from my great grandfather being Tsadik which means saint or righteous one.

Wikipedia says:
Since the late 17th Century, in Hasidic Judaism, the institution of the mystical tzadik as a Divine channel assumed central importance, combining popularization of (hands-on) Jewish mysticism with social movement for the first time.[1] Adapting former Kabbalistic theosophical terminology, Hasidic thought internalised mystical experience, emphasising deveikut attachment to its Rebbe leadership, who embody and channel the Divine flow of blessing to the world.[2]
Kabbalah describes an extension of Moses in each generation, alternately identified with the Tzadik of the generation, and the potential Messiah of the generation. In Hasidism, each person's soul essence relates to the level of Moses.
I was not bullied since people knew that I was a pugilist. Now there was a guy who was bullied terribly. He did not kill himself. He is the most famous living person in the world today. He is the only person that is CEO of 2 billion dollar companies. Full time he is a rocket scientist and in his spare time he has a company that people invested $50 billion into making it bigger than GM or Ford. That is Elon Musk of Tesla and SpaceX.

As far as being a pugilist or fighter see How a 6 Year-Old Girl Saves Mother's Life. It tells about how Alexis saved her mother's life and it also tells how at age 16 I fought in the junior division of the Northeast United States Regional Karate Championship and won second place.
