A Word to the Wise T.I. - Ditching Depression with Homeopathy

"Joy" by Alceon Jones

Did you know that Flower Essences a.k.a. Homeopathy can be an important part of battling EH (Electronic Harassment) induced depression? Some of the best known manufacturers are Bach, Borion, Highlands, Nature's Way, Nelson and NSI (Nutraceutical Sciences Institute), and are available at health food and herb stores, as well as online (where you can often get them at half price).
Below is a list of excellent flower essences for depression. They can be taken singly or mix-and-matched to suit your specific needs. The following descriptions come from A Guide to 38 Remedies.
Elm is for “When You are Overwhelmed by Responsibility. Though usually competent and capable, they momentarily lose confidence and become despondent."
Gentian is for “When Setbacks Leave You Disheartened and Those Who are Easily Discouraged. They may be progressing well in illness or in the affairs of their daily life, but any small delay or hindrance to progress causes doubt and soon disheartens them. The positive potential of Elm is restoration of one's normal capable personality, and a return to efficiency and self-assurance.”
Gorse is for “When You've Given Up. Gorse is for hopelessness; despair. It is for people who have given up the fight. They feel that there is no light at the end of the tunnel and have lost all hope. The positive potential of Gorse is a sense of faith and hope despite current physical or mental problems.”
Heather is for “When Your Attempts to Communicate Drive People Away. Heather is for when you are self preoccupied; self concern; talkative. They drive others away with their extreme neediness. They exaggerate their symptoms, or make mountains out of molehills. The positive potential of Heather is the good listener who is generous in helping others, selfless and understanding of other people's problems.
Hornbeam is for When the Thought of a Task Leaves You Weary. Hornbeam is for weariness, mental rather than physical; for those who wake up doubting their ability to face the day's work. The positive potential of Hornbeam is certainty of one's strength and ability to face the day's work. A lively mind, vitality, freshness and spontaneity are restored, and life is enjoyable again."
Larch is for “When You Expect to Fail - Regularly. Larch is for lack of confidence. It is for people who won't even try because they are sure in advance that they will fail. They suffer from feelings of inferiority. The positive potential of Larch is expressed in people who are determined, capable, with a realistic sense of self-esteem, unworried about failure or success."
Mustard is for “When Sudden Depression Comes and Leaves as Suddenly. The positive potential of Mustard is the return of joy, supported by an inner stability and peace, which cannot be shaken or destroyed under good circumstances or bad."
Olive is for “those who are Exhausted in Body and Mind after a long period of strain through personal difficulties, and intense period of study or work, a long illness, or nursing someone else for a long time. The positive potential of Olive is restoration of strength, vitality, and interest in life."

Try these and you'll find that A Word to the Wise T.I. was indeed, sufficient.

A Word to the Wise T.I. - Ditching Depression with Apple Cider Vinegar

Art: "Apple Blossoms" by D W. Tryon

The Problem: Targeted Individuals (T.I.s) often experience situational depression from prolonged organized stalking and electronic harassment.  With varying degrees of difficulty they struggle to combat harassment-induced listlessness and depression. 

Naturally Fermented Raw (unpasteurized) Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar successfully treats mild situational depression. Drunken daily, the following mixture stimulates the liver to rid itself of toxins and help better metabolize proteins during digestion. These proteins are needed to produce adequate levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, a behavior-regulating chemical that helps us to maintain a feeling of serenity.

2 Tablespoons naturally raw organic unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) 
4 ounces Water
2 Tablespoons Honey 

Notes: Naturally fermented raw (unpasteurized) unfiltered ACV also aids digestion, neutralizing excess stomach acid. For more about the many health benefits of ACV, read this article.

You can replace the water with cranberry or apple juice.

You can replace the honey with Stevia food supplement.  It is especially sweet, but will  add zero calories.

Special Thanks: to the anonymous activist who shared her many decades of experience and helpful advice on this topic.

So enjoy the revitalizing power of depression ditching apple cider vinegar and may A Word to the Wise T.I. be sufficient.

A Word to the Wise T.I. - Ditching Depression with Frankincense

Photo: Frankincense resin.
You can win the battle against OS&EH induced depression by using a combination of ancient Eastern wisdom and cutting edge Western scientific research.

Frankincense (Boswellia) – Used in India’s Ayurvedic Medicine for over 4,000 years (1) and Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 2,000, (2) the resin/sap of the Boswellia tree has been integral to the world’s religions for over 5 millennia, (3) but its depression ditching capacity was only scientifically explained (in western terms) last year when a combined US-Israeli bio research team found that incensole acetate, a constituent of frankincense, is a potent anxiolitic (anti-anxiety) and anti-depressive agent. It achieves this by activating TRPV3 channels in the brain, the same neural pathways used by prescription anti-depressants. (4)

Frankincense is easy to buy and use. Here’s the run down:

Frankincense Essential Oil – is usually sold in tiny, highly portable, 0.5 fl oz bottles, available from herb and health food stores, and online. Note: “Perfume Oils”, “Fragrant Oils”, or any "Aromatherapy Oils" that do not specifically say “100% Essential Oils” are not pure and are either adulterated with other ingredients, or are synthetic. (5) Dab behind ears as you would a perfume. Advantages: breathe in this emotion uplifting oil all day. Disadvantages: your workplace may be a “scent-free” environment. Warning: Though toxic to cats, with a little common sense essential oils can be used safely around pets. (6) In general, the following passive diffusers are the safest and cheapest methods for delivering essential oils.

Aromatherapy Pendent – These can be plain for Men (look at the wooden ones at the bottom of this link) and worn or kept in shirt breast pocket. More ornate ones are available for Women. If an open fillegre pendent is used, wear it up high on the neck choker style so it can be as close to the nose as possible. If a closed vial type pendent is used, the length of chain is up to you. Tip: With fillegre styles, make sure reusable felt pads come with it or cut your own from a piece of felt. Dab oil onto felt pad and place inside pendent. Advantages: enjoy the protective powers of frankincense all day. Remove and seal in a Zip-Lock bag when you enter a “scent-free” environment. There are so many styles, so if you don't like those, there are...
Terra Cotta Pendents – made from kiln-fired terra-cotta clay and rock hard yet light weight. The edges are smooth, so you don't have to worry about being scratched. They frequently come with waxed cotton, leather, or cloth neck cords. Tip: Lay the pendant flat and apply one drop of essential oil. Allow the oil time to become completely absorbed into the clay. When the oil is completely absorbed, it is ready to wear. Clasp the pendant around your neck, and you're ready to feel wonderful all day long! Here is another vendor.

Aromatherapy Earrings – perform the same function as the pendent. Advantages: odor has less distance to travel to your nose. Remove and seal in a Zip-Lock bag when you enter a “scent-free” environment.

Tissue or String Diffusion – Place 3-4 drops on tissue or string and hang near you. Advantages: inexpensive. Can be used anywhere. Disadvantages: not very effective. Warning: cats like to play with strings and you don't want your to get this in his mouth.

Mini Terra Cotta Aroma-Stone Diffusers – available online and from herb and health food stores. Add 1 or 2 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend onto the impression. When the terra cotta stone absorbs the oil, hang it near you. Re-scent as needed. Advantages: works in the car or office, place dresser draws, hang on walls.

Bottle Method – Just keep the original diminutive bottle (or put in this kind) with you all day to dab on from, or take whiff from throughout the day. Advantages: can be taken to work and kept closed except when inhaling. Can inhale quickly at desk or in bathroom so as not to offend coworkers or breaking “scent-free zone” rules. Disadvantages: occasional whiffs are less effective than continual inhalation.

Pocket Inhaler – same as with bottle method.

THE FOLLOWING ARE NOT RECOMMENDED! General Warning – active diffusers are not safe around dogs and cats. Most designs are easily knocked over by wagging dog tails or leaping cats. Candle powered models can cause fires. Essential oils are toxic to cats and if knocked over, your cat will try to lick oil off of its fur.

Electric Nebulizer – Fan blows drops into air. Disadvantages: Expensively priced. Uses costly electricity. Warning: Fan spews the oil into the air, essential oils are toxic to cats and if a drop lands on a cat, cat will lick it off and ingest.

Candle DiffuserDisadvantages: a lit candle is a potential fire hazard. You should never leave a room with a lit candle in it, or go to sleep with a candle burning. Also, the jury is still out on whether heat destroys vital molecular structure in the oil. Warning: Especially **NOT** safe around dogs and cats: most designs are easily knocked over by wagging dog tails or leaping cats. Also, when knocked over, your cat may have to lick oil off of its fur.

Frankincense Resin or PowderDisadvantages: The resin nuggets appear uncomfortably similar to certain illicit drugs and there is a high potential of something being planted in with your resin in order to set you up for a police bust. Warning: the charcoal used to burn the resin or powder is a fire hazard.

A Word to the Wise T.I. - Cooldanna for Head & Neck

The Problem:

Targets' necks are targeted on the side (at the aorta).

Neck aches occur when undetected, long-duration, low-intensity EH directed to back of neck.

Choking occurs when EH targets front of neck.

Dizziness and confusion results when the base of head undergoes undetected, long-duration, low-intensity EH.

Shielding Solutions:

1A) wear a COOLDANNA or THERAPRO bandanna, cap insert, scarf-hart or brimmed hat. These are filled with water-retaining crystals. If you are being continually targeted then you may have to re-wet half way through the day. Depending on item and store, costs between $3-$20 (cap inserts, scarves, bandannas are cheapest). 

1B) wear a COLDANNA or THERAPRO bandanna along with a COOLDANNA Cooling Hard Hat Pad & Neck Shade. The bandanna will protect front and sides of neck. The hard hat pad with neck shade will protect the top/back of head and back of neck.

2) wear wet regular cotton bandannas tied around your neck and on your head - you will have to re-wet frequently throughout the day as the EH quickly heats and drys bandanna.
