Dr. Weeks’ Comment: The true role of the doctor is to collaborate with and encourage the native healing within – the immune system. But this role requires nutrients (including oxygen) being able to pass into cells through cell membranes and waste products passing out of cells via cell membranes. We have learned that fish oil supplements and even fermented cod liver oil retard this healthy commerce into and out of cells since they are adulterated and rancid fatty acids which “suffocate” cell membranes. Seed oils, in contrast, enhance healthy commerce into and out of cells but optimizing cell membrane function. “Changing your oil” does not only apply to car maintenance but also to your own health. Chronic degenerative neurological illnesses (MS, ALS, Parkinson’s, seizure disorders, Alzheimer’s disease) all require a change of oil if improvement is desired. “Good oil in, bad oil out”. Remember the brain is 100:1 omega 6 to omega 3, so eating unadulterated omega-6 rich seed oils is essential for neurological health.
Now for a reflection of other walls…
On 13 August 1961 the East German government began
construction of the “Antifaschistischer Schutzwall”
(anti-fascist protective wall) surrounding West Berlin. On
this day in 1989, under pressure because East Germans had
been fleeing into Hungary and Austria for three months, the
government announced that East Berliners would be able to
leave starting the following day. A note without reference to
the date or the need to apply for permits was passed to party
spokesman Gunter Schabowski during a press conference,
Schabowski read the note verbatim. When asked when the change
took effect, the unprepared party leader hesitated and then
said that it was immediate. The news was carried on West
German television, which meant most of East Germany heard it.
East Berliners descended on the gates and were stopped by
the guards, but when no official was willing to authorize
lethal force, the guards abandoned their posts.
Men build too many walls and not enough bridges.
– Isaac Newton, 1643 – 1727
The grandest of heroic deeds are those which are performed
within four walls and in domestic privacy.
– Jean Paul, 1763 – 1825
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success;
leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against
the right wall.
– Stephen Covey, 1932 – 2012
Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it
into a door.
– Coco Chanel, 1883 – 1971
Walls protect and walls limit. It is in the nature of walls
that they should fall. That walls should fall is the
consequence of blowing your own trumpet.
– Jeanette Winterson
Those who build walls are their own prisoners.
– Ursula K. Le Guin
Most of us can read the writing on the wall; we just assume
it’s addressed to someone else.
– Ivern Ball, 1926 – 1992
