Natural Childbirth Options
Hydergine is derived from ergot alkaloids (present in rye fungus) that are also used in antimigraine medications. The drug company Sandoz (now part of Novartis) began to study hydergine after it learned that ergot alkaloids were used by nontraditional practitioners to lower a pregnant mother's blood pressure during childbirth. Sandoz's goal was to use hydergine to lower blood pressure and the risk of stroke this didn't pan out, but they did manage to get it approved as a treatment for dementia.
In the previous move, outside of the magic belief box we shifted back in time to the intention that gave birth to the formula of belief. Then with Positive Prior Cause we moved back in time to attribute a causation to pre-frame a person into a place that allows them to become more resourceful. Now let's move in the other direction, again, outside of the box. This time let's move into the future, to a time when the formula itself gives birth to outcomes and consequences. Directionalizing our brain in this direction will take us to the outcome of the behavior, belief, interaction, etc. And there we can begin to explore its effects and the value of these effects.
Like Michael, many patients with memory problems who come for evaluation discover that the cause is something that they never imagined could impair their ability to think and remember. Often, the cause is a common condition (such as depression) or a disorder that increases the risk of cerebrovascular disease and heart disease (such as poorly controlled high blood pressure or diabetes). Other causes of memory loss are hormonal changes that occur naturally during certain stages of life. For women, hormonal fluctuations following childbirth and around menopause can make them feel less sharp. Men also go through a phase of significant hormonal change as they age a drop in testosterone level has been linked with age-related memory problems. Still other causes of memory loss are unhealthy habits (such as excessive alcohol use and getting too little exercise or sleep) or a lack of intellectual challenge.
To think fast in emergency situations is often a matter of life and death in some cases. How would you handle yourself in a fire, a bad car accident, a robbery or on a passenger liner sinking at sea Campers have died of cold exposure with packs containing food and cooking stoves. Car occupants have frozen to death in their cars with a half a tank of gas left. People have drowned in 4 feet of water. Panic is a killer. Determined, quick thinking is a life saver. Injured outdoorsmen have dragged their smashed bodies for miles and survived. Women have given birth to children in the wilderness all alone. People have performed amputations or crude surgery on themselves and saved their own lives.
As we discussed in the first chapter, our great capacity for learning and remembering plays an enormous role in forming our human potential. Moreover, our personal experiences, where we have learned and remembered specific items and events, define us as individuals. These truths are nowhere more evident than when we consider individuals with pronounced learning and memory deficits, present from birth. In this chapter, we consider human mental retardation syndromes and their underlying molecular basis. In some intellectually satisfying instances, we will actually be able to tie mechanisms for these disorders back into fundamental mechanisms for synaptic plasticity and learning that we have already discussed.1
In an internal report from the Institute for Research in Construction,16 D. Downing reported that There is no area of our mental and bodily functioning that the sun does not influence. Our bodies were designed to receive and use it in a wide range of ways. We were not designed to hide from it in houses, offices, factories and schools. Sunshine, reaching us through our eyes and our skin, exercises a subtle control over us from birth to death, from head to tail. Assuming that Downing is correct, we should strive to make our training environments rich in light, either natural or artificial, or a combination of both.
These people had just paid my company a good deal of money to help them through the birth canal of this process. They had been a great client over the years, bringing us in frequently to help them tackle big challenges and opportunities. I hoped the answer to my question was not going to backfire on me. I had to get to the bottom of this.
It's one thing to come up with a great idea. Conceiving, so to speak. It's quite another thing to give birth to it and raise it to maturity. And the trickiest part of that postconception routine is getting others to embrace the new idea, what we commonly refer to as selling it.
I heard a story told by an individual at the Wall Street Journal who played a major role in giving birth to one of the most revolutionary improvements to this fine publication in the past 50 years. He said it took him five years to get his comrades to see the wisdom of this concept. A concept that has gone on to add a whole new dimension to the periodical, not to mention millions of dollars in incremental income. I'm talking about the preprinted industry-focused inserts that the Wall Street Journal includes periodically in its editorial calendar.
