Prednisone and the Lymph System
We all know about Lyle Alzado getting cancer or a brain tumor from using steroids and that they are outlawed in most sports now. In the warnings you might run into about short term applications of many steroids you will seldom if ever gain any real understanding of what it does especially if you are ever going to bear children. While I am thinking about this I am recalling how little we know about other drugs we use that kill needed biologics in our stomach that number in the thousands and interact in ways we yet have little knowledge about (Candida, rheumatic fever, allergies and more). Here is a little from the well-respected Mayo Clinic.
"Prednisone and other corticosteroids
Weigh the benefits and risks of corticosteroids, such as prednisone, when choosing a medication.
By Mayo Clinic Staff
Corticosteroid medications — including cortisone, hydrocortisone and prednisone — have great potential in the treatment of a variety of conditions, from rashes to lupus to asthma. But corticosteroids also carry a risk of side effects. Working with your doctor, you can take steps to reduce these medications' side effects so that the benefits of treatment outweigh the risks.
How do corticosteroids work?
Corticosteroids mimic the effects of hormones your body produces naturally in your adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys. When prescribed in doses that exceed your body's usual levels, corticosteroids suppress inflammation. This can reduce the signs and symptoms of inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis and asthma.
Corticosteroids also suppress your immune system, which can help control conditions in which your immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues.
How are corticosteroids used?
Corticosteroid medications are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, asthma, allergies and many other conditions. They also treat conditions such as Addison's disease, in which the adrenal glands don't produce enough steroids, and help prevent organ rejection in transplant recipients.
You can take corticosteroids:
•By mouth. Tablets, capsules or syrups help treat the inflammation and pain associated with certain chronic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
•By inhaler and intranasal spray. These forms help control inflammation associated with asthma and nasal allergies.
•Topically. Creams and ointments can help heal many skin conditions.
•By injection. This form is used to treat such signs and symptoms as the pain and inflammation of tendinitis."
However good or well-intentioned a doctor might be, he is not usually a chemist and even if he was, he does not know how interactions will occur with your specific mood, metabolism and soul or spirit. Doctors might still be removing parts of the lymph system like the Adenoids, tonsils and so on just in case they might get infected. It is only a decade or two since real research began on the lymph system as a result of AIDS. The idea of soul is denied by almost all psychiatrists - and there is another major problem. Please read what actual recipients of these drugs have said.

And you may think I am berserk to claim a connection exists with the soul or spirit, also known as the mind. But that is what I have said ever since I noticed the lymph system is connected with psychic points in my 20s. I could say I told you so. No I will say I told you so. It will be good to see the brain-mapping done at Harvard which shows yogis and mystics in states of esoteric bliss and healing, integrated with consciousness and this study.
"In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist.
That such vessels could have escaped detection when the lymphatic system has been so thoroughly mapped throughout the body is surprising on its own, but the true significance of the discovery lies in the effects it could have on the study and treatment of neurological diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer’s disease to multiple sclerosis.
“Instead of asking, ‘How do we study the immune response of the brain?,’ ‘Why do multiple sclerosis patients have the immune attacks?,’ now we can approach this mechanistically – because the brain is like every other tissue connected to the peripheral immune system through meningeal lymphatic vessels,” said Jonathan Kipnis, a professor in U.Va.’s Department of Neuroscience and director of U.Va.’s Center for Brain Immunology and Glia. “It changes entirely the way we perceive the neuro-immune interaction. We always perceived it before as something esoteric that can’t be studied. But now we can ask mechanistic questions."
He added, “We believe that for every neurological disease that has an immune component to it, these vessels may play a major role. [It’s] hard to imagine that these vessels would not be involved in a [neurological] disease with an immune component.”
Kevin Lee, who chairs the Department of Neuroscience, described his reaction to the discovery by Kipnis’ lab: “The first time these guys showed me the basic result, I just said one sentence: ‘They’ll have to change the textbooks.’ There has never been a lymphatic system for the central nervous system, and it was very clear from that first singular observation – and they’ve done many studies since then to bolster the finding – that it will fundamentally change the way people look at the central nervous system’s relationship with the immune system.”"
The next link addresses research on cancer cells spreading through the lymph system. Suppressing this system which is vital to our health has many consequences.

The esoteric word in the scientific proofing this month that the brain is part of the lymph (psychic points) system, was a very deep and good term, which means formerly science had no reason to examine things like soul and our attunement ability. That too will take time. I am just happy to see these things coming to pass. Gravitational Wave Theory could add so much. Maybe we could even learn to THINK away the temperature rise that will cause the water levels to rise.
Legend had it that a Stele brought to the Miami Planetarium when I was living there forty years ago; had been used to keep an ancient comet or moon headed at Earth from colliding with us for a thousand years. I was the only individual there when it was taken off the truck even though it had been announced in the media. I told the employees of the Planetarium what it and it's magnetic properties were for. They thought I was crazy, and had no interest in learning how our energy can attune to other energy.
