Healing is fundamentally self healing.  No doctor or medicine heals a wound, but merely support and stimulate, or even interfere with the body’s intelligent process.  The body forms granulation tissue to mend itself.  Health care can interfere with the body’s wound healing process, like anti-inflammatories and anti-biotics do by over-alkalizing the tissue from a sol to a gel state, or support it like how Methyl-Sulfonyl Methane (an organic sulfur nutritional supplement) helps reduce any excess scar tissue and restore circulation and function, when taken after a wound has sealed itself… Even if that wound happened decades before!

Blood letting

I have only heard of two double blind studies on surgery, and both found no advantage to real surgery over a mock procedure.  One was on open heart surgery, and the other arthroscopic knee surgery.  Blood letting may be more evidence based, as long as it is performed on people in high energy terrain (Phase 4 in my 5 Phases of Healing model), and preferably not performed by humans.  Leaches do a much cleaner job!

With untold resources poured into patent medicine for nearly a century now, we should be able to see the results of this modern experiment.  We are spending more on disease care, but our increases in longevity are attributable to improvements in public health knowledge and practices, not those of our medical system.  There are systemic issues in our current approach involving financial incentives in the most lucrative industry in the world today.  Most pharmaceutical research is funded by the industry, and most of the unfavorable results go unreported, while some of the favorable results are fictitious.  In the typical best case scenario, a drug may actually work for the parameter being manipulated, but does it make us healthier?  Were we really deficient in a toxin?

Church and cresent moon

Church and Moon in the Cathedral of the Heavens…  Are a culture’s highest aspirations reflected in its tallest structures?

The more we know, the more questions we are able to pose about the nature of this world.  Though our soul may live forever, we will sustain our state of awe and inspiration as we learn more Truth of what is…  Feel free to request my contemplations in answer to any of these, or your own favorite questions.  I am working on answering these, and am happy to prioritize my writing according to your interest.

The Shire: The Shire


  by Glen Swartwout Everything grows at The Shire… well almost everything.  And some things grow faster than we might want, like grass and vines around orchard and garden plantings.  Cultivation is a process requiring our regular attention to help our favorite tasty food plants grow and prosper… Orchards: The orchards are planted as food […]


  by Glen Swartwout Metal is useful for many tools.  When kept well oiled in our ‘marine’ environment, these tools are one of the most precious and lasting sources of utility and value we have.  They are precious.  We paint bright colors on their handles so we do not lose them or forget to bring […]


  by Glen Swartwout The Shire is located adjacent to the Burning Land of Mount Doom, otherwise known as Kilauea, the most active volcano on Earth… The tropical sun, also shines its celestial fire down upon this land, providing a year round growing season, balancing out the sometimes intense rainfall that keeps it a lush, […]


  by Glen Swartwout Dwarves and earth hobbits have an affinity for digging holes in the ground.  This is very useful for harvesting rock and soil, planting trees, building gardens, roads and paths, as well as providing material for rock and mortar construction of foundations and pillars, or dry laid rock construction such as traditional Hawaiian stone […]


by Glen Swartwout Humans and water hobbits have an affinity for water.  While The Shire rainforest environment famously supplies over 11 feet of rain water each year, keeping the aina lush and green, and blooming round the seasons, there is no naturally occurring surface water feature in the lands of Puna, except during floods, of […]


  by Glen Swartwout Wood elves enjoy the remote reaches of deep rainforest, while wood hobbits rarely stray very far from comfort of the The Shire, but prefer to inhabit the cool forest edges.  These Middle Earth dwellers are caretakers of forest glen and glade…  they take care in how they interact with the trees […]

Lava Cracks

  by Glen Swartwout Crevices in the earth form near the Rift Zone of the most active volcano on Earth, as the land to our South (the unstable side of this fault line) sinks under the massive weight of the newest land on Earth, being deposited daily whenever the lava is flowing into the ocean… […]

Lava Trees

  by Glen Swartwout “I’m off to the Lava Tree…” said one hobbit to his fellow. “Mind you don’t fall in!” came a retort of caution…. — You see, lava tree moulds are holes in the earth that can easily be ten feet deep and up to two or three feet wide, a mould formed […]

Life and Death

by Glen Swartwout According to recent research findings, “the more we actively contemplate mortality, the more we reject socially imposed goals such as wealth or fame and focus instead on personal growth or the cultivation of positive relationships.” (New Scientist magazine, issue 2887, page 38-40) Traditionally, great value has been found in the contemplation of the “four […]
