Used By?The?Rogues To Sicken People
Nickel is an older, ?male? mineral that affects all the organs of the body.??However, it seems to affect most the brain and the lungs.??The word?male?is used?because nickel is more ?yang? than many other minerals.??Yang in macrobiotics is more associated with maleness.
Nickel?may be called?the lung cancer mineral.??Nickel is found in cigarette smoke and getting too much of it can cause or contribute to lung cancer.
SOURCES OF NICKEL
-?rooibos?tea or red teas
-?metallic?dental braces?(very important)
-?cell?phones that are metallic and touch the skin of the cheek.
– possibly other dental wires besides braces
-?some?dental crowns contain some nickel
-?possibly?Breville?and Sunbeam water boilers that use nickel-plated immersion heaters
-?margarines?and imitation whip cream
-?kelp, if contaminated
-?possibly?some unrefined grains and cereals
-?oysters?and possibly other shellfish from contaminated waters
-?nickel?plating on metallic objects
-?some?batteries, machine parts, wire, and electrical parts
-?lifting?steel weights or handling anything made of steel
HOW NICKEL AFFECTS THE BODY
Kidneys?- nickel has a tendency to accumulate in the kidneys and damage the kidneys.
Hormone, lipid and membrane metabolism?- some nickel compounds may have some physiological role related to these functions.
Cancer?? nickel associated with development of lung cancer, specifically, in those exposed to nickel vapors.
Brain?? nickel toxicity is definitely associated with?negative feelings, including depression and, if exposure is severe enough, suicidal thoughts.??Nickel may also cause a person to be ?attached? or abnormally dependent on others.??It may have this effect by weakening the body or brain in a particular way.
SYMPTOMS OF NICKEL TOXICITY
cancer, oral, intestinal and lung
depression, abnormal attachment to others, and suicidal thoughts
Iron is a nickel antagonist.??It competes with nickel for absorption.??Some nickel compounds may deplete B-complex vitamins.
Among natural?chelators, vitamin C can?chelate?some nickel.??Distilled water can probably remove some, as well.??Many nutrients help antagonize or prevent the buildup of nickel.
HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS NOTES ABOUT NICKEL
Any hair mineral analysis with a nickel level of 0.02?mg%?or higher can indicate a person is drinking?rooibos?tea, unless they have another exposure such as working with steel or making jewelry.??Every cup of?rooibos?tea one drinks daily tends to raise the hair nickel by about 0.02?mg%.??Hair?must not be washed?at the laboratory for this association to occur.
A ?CHILD? MINERAL
A form of nickel found in certain foods is a ?child? mineral.??This means that all children have some of it, and it helps cause attachment to one?s parents.??This is a defense mechanism to keep a child from straying or disobeying parents.??As one matures, one will eliminate this nickel compound.
Nickel is a very hard and durable metal.??It?is used?for plating other metals to cover and protect other metals, for this reason.??For example, less expensive jewelry, bathroom fixtures, and many other products are often nickel-plated or covered with nickel for protection.
Nickel is also a hardener.??Hydrogenated oils, which are hardened vegetable oils, are made by bubbling nickel carbonyl through the oil.??The chemical reaction hardens the oil to make products such as margarine, commercial peanut butter, and vegetable shortening.??Unfortunately, these products contain nickel.??for details about plating and hardeners.
Nickel also?can be given?a very shiny, smooth appearance.??It?is used?in costume jewelry as an inexpensive substitute for silver, for this reason.
??????????????Nickel is also associated with physical life on earth.??This is a philosophical, rather than a physiological or pathological quality of the metal.??Nickel, specifically, has to do with the structural aspect of physicality such as the bones, but even more so the lungs and the respiratory system of the physical body.
USED BY THE ROGUES
Nickel is given to people by?the those?we call the rogues to weaken and sicken people.??We have mentioned requiring people to drink?Rooibos?tea that is naturally high in nickel.??They also enhance some of that tea with more nickel.
In addition, they can dust the air a person breathes with nickel to sicken the brain, lungs and other organs. =
