We, Dead Heads, are a peer run brain injury support group for TBI, (Traumatic Brain Injury). Our brain injuries may have come through trauma, stroke, aneurysms, tumors, disease, or other neurological incidents. We all have this in common, most people cannot relate to us or understand what sets off our seizures, short-term memory issues, ability to concentrate, our confusion, to sum it up, what we will call our “Bad Brain Days.”
A few months back some members were sitting around a table throwing out suggestions for what may have just caused several days of extreme Bad Brain Days. It was mentioned that a few days before our troubles ramped up, there had been a news report, which stated there was going to be a planetary alignment. This would likely bring about volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and extreme weather cycles as it had with past alignments. These events had been well documented since 2000. As predicted all this did happen once more with Alaska’s Pavlof Volcano being one of the first to come to life.
We realized that during this planetary alignment many of us had battled Bad Brain Days, some ending up in the hospital. Was there a connection?
Dates of our seizures were looked at using a Moon Phases program. Much to our surprise most had battled Bad Brain Days on New Moons, Full Moons, or a day before of after. Was there a gravity factor that was a clue to why for particular no rhyme or reason we battle seizures or problems with cognitive functioning?
Still a few Bad Brain Days did not fit into this hypothesis. Some of our problems had accrued during some of the most stunning Northern Lights viewed here on the Kenai; was there a connection between coronal mass ejections, (CME) and brain activity?
We contacted the Alaska Brain Injury Network, they had never considered our new hypothesis, but thought there might be a connection. Next we contacted the TBI Clinic at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (JBER). New concept view to them; they would see what they could find on the subject.
Two day later JBER called informing us our hunch was right; there was a direct connection. Information they had gathered through scientific research was being sent to us. It was thought we should start monitoring our conditions with this new twist and log it down.
High-energy charged particles that bombard the Earth’s ionosphere create distinct electrical disturbances that not only interfere with power grids, satellites, but also can drastically affect human health. And the moon and planets create Geomagnetic Fluctuations that can drastically affect physical health, and behavior.
Solar and Geomagnetic Activity (S-GMA) seem to closely overlap the Schumann Resonances (SR) frequencies. SR have ultra low frequency peaks at 7.8 Hz, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39, 45, and 51 Hz. These closely overlap with the human brain.
We are wondering, could part of this complex problem be due to magnetite? Magnetite is a mineral that is a million times more magnetic than iron. It is found in the tissues of living things, around the eyes of migratory birds, the lines on the body of salmon, as well as the abdomens of bees. It is thought it might possibly help give guidance.
In humans it is in the brain, the blood brain barrier and the bone above the eyes and sinuses. Is it possible that our head injuries have somehow altered or displaced the magnetite in our heads, which makes us more sensitive to Geomagnetic Fluctuations?
Many of us have noticed that like clock work moon phases and gravitational pull from even the recent close encounter with Mars had a severe effect on our cranial cortex. To help prepare us for these events we just obtained a TriField Natural EM Meter. With this meter we are able to monitor the Earths magnetic and electric fields. Between this meter, tracking moon phases and known planetary alignments we at least have a heads up on what we face. We are all pondering what Nov. 14 will bring about, as it will be the largest Super Moon since 1949!
If you or someone you know battles Bad Brain Days, come check us out. The Dead Heads meet the second Tuesday each month at the Soldotna Public Library between 6 and 7:45 p.m. We meet the last Tuesday of the month at Access Alaska, Inc office on College Heights Road off of Kalifornsky Beach Road across from the Peninsula Food Bank at the Jay’s Painting building. The meeting is from 6-8 p.m. You can call for more information at 907-262-4955 or 907-299-5056.
