Music sooths the savage beast

I used to be an active musician and play autoharp anywhere and everywhere I could think to play. The autoharp si quite soothing. I hope you consider playing because it reminds me of David, before he became King David, playing for King Saul.

Study supports some of Barbara Hanson's article on male age

If you go to the site below you will see an article about age and male factor that supports the study Barbara Hansen made. I cite this study in my article Silent Infections. The March of Dimes states 50% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. The more that is known about factors of miscarriage, the more possible women will have fewer traumas.
Acidty leads to Infertility July 8, 2008 is the article to find. It might be easier to Google than to hunt!

There is a new study on Magnesium and pregnancy that is important. Please Google both.

I am making ponchos for women who do have a baby, for a donation to the non-profit I am beginning called Fear Thou Not. Please contact me with a comment and email address.

Silent Infection

Mr. Odone, Lorenzo Odone's father, inspired me to do research about a common infection women share, as well as horses. I wondered at the difference between horses and women with regards to success in giving birth to live offspring. Very little research exists for humans and a common infection, yeast. Much is known about horses and yeast. But perhaps more will be known for horses when humans are studied more. Below is the article I wrote after researching about yeast, women and infertility/miscarriage. Lorenzo died May 30, 2008.,2933,361148,00.html

Robert O. Young, PhD, believes that infection and all disease is a symptom of the pH scale of the blood being off kilter. I highly recommend his site for his articles of health blogs because our bodies never become resistant to chlorophyll and alkaline water, but on the other hand, some anti-fungal drugs cause miscarriage and the body becomes resistant.

Charlotte Fairchild Many Infections are Silent (c) 2005

Many infections are silent, symptomless. An infection does not need to be sexually transmitted to be listed in the STI/STD category(CDC, 2004) or to have been found to cause infertility in horses (Google, 2004). Humans have not been studied as extensively? An example: horses infected with Candida from fescue and/or caterpillars become infertile. (Google, 2004) Common infections, as well as sexually transmitted infections might well disrupt hormones, and decrease fertility. The research for common infections in humans affecting FSH (Folicle Stimulating Hormone) has yet to be done (urinary tract infections, yeast infections, dental disease, colds, to name a few). If there is a relationship to fertility and common infections, one test will not close the door to treatment, as well as hope for many women to give birth to their genetic child. It may instead open the door to better health. Perhaps the pH Miracle and alkaline diets will change the milieu of sterility, stillbirth, infertility, miscarriage.

Most women who reach menopause will have high FSH levels. Follicle Stimulating Hormone comes from the pituitary in the brain, and is necessary for ovulation in women. Higher levels spell menopause and the end of ovulation. Some women have higher levels as soon as their 20s and other women have normal levels in their 40s. The women with higher levels find it is difficult or impossible to have their genetic children. Little research has been done directly for factors of FSH levels. So much has been written about the age factor, when perhaps there is more. (Hanson, 2003) Perhaps infection plays a role.

Four studies gave differing views of infection and FSH levels. HIV infected women had higher levels of FSH in one study. (Salmassi, 2001) Cattle had normal FSH levels, but still fewer and smaller follicles with a uterine bacterial infection. (Sheldon, 2002) (The FSH levels may have been different, but the effects were similar, because fertility factors decreased in each study.) FSH is related to viral replication time (Wang, S.W., 1995). “Our findings reveal that endotoxin interrupts the follicular phase of the cycle by interfering with several steps in the preovulatory chain of endocrine events.” (Karsch, 2001) ########

I hope this holiday was peaceful and there was love for you.

The picture above was taken during the time I was going through 12 surgeries. I gained weight with steroids and the hormones. I didn't eat chocolate during that time, and I never drank or smoked. I still don't. I have bouts with chocolate, but always get off it for a long time. Keep going down for a picture of me after weight loss with the pH Miracle Living by Robert O. Young and Shelly Redford Young.

Invetro side effects, and How Long Does It Hurt: Cynthia L. Mather

85% of women who go through infertility treatment have empty arms. We are the majority inside the minority, and not enough is being done to care for the couples of men and women who go through this. There was no reason to try surgeries and medicines that caused me to gain 130 pounds when there are supplements with a 30% success rate and no weight gain or other side effects. I was NOT molested, but the US Justice Department statistics that are quoted in the book below make it very important to include in this blog.

Sometimes letting go gives you the freedom to allow something to happen. None of the women expected a baby after years of barrenness in the Bible, and that is as it should be. Having a baby has nothing to do with faith that God gives our every wish, but having a baby is about faith in God to know what we can handle.

I made kudzu buckwheat bread the other day and this is how it looks. The oldest fertility diet I know is the one Samson's mother was given in the Jewish Bible. The side effects were NOT weight gain.

Healing Music

Making music, being in places with music, being surrounded with music are all part of the vibration of life. Helen Keller used to feel vibrations. Going to a place with music that is much too loud, if some kind of hearing protection is available, might still be valuable.

I just got new picks from .

Vibrations do what to our cells? Helen Keller loved loud vibrations!

There are songs that deal with barrenness and miscarriage. Do a search and also look into finding them through friends.

Florence considered herself a muscian first and an artist second. She told me that many, many times. I don't have a recording of her playing.

Charlotte Fairchild recommends Clear Passage

Clear Passage is massage to help clear blocked fallopian tubes and clear adhesions.

If you Google it, with University of Florida, the published studies will tell you more.

If there is no one to give you a massage, I have been told a tennis ball does deep tissue massage well. It helps my back pain, so maybe it will help fallopian tubes?
