Mind over Matter - health via consciousness: Snippets from Dr Bruce Lipton

Here are some notes from Dr Bruce Lipton, author of "The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles".

Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and those of other leading edge scientists, have examined in great detail the mechanisms by which cells receive and process information.

The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.

"In our world, things that are large in size, like cells, tissues, organs and bigger, can to some degree be
understood by using the physical laws of Newton . But when you get down to the level of the atoms and
molecules that make up the cells, you're dealing with the quantum realm. Allopathic medicine focuses
upon the larger physical realm in trying to understand how the body works. With Newtonian blinders
on, all they consider are physical interactions. They perceive of the body as a molecular machine, and
when it's not working, that implies some physical components of the body must be malfunctioning.

Their vision of disease is, "If the physical body is not working right, then throw in new molecules to
adjust the function." And those molecular fixes are called drugs. So they attempt to heal from that
mechanistic point of view. However, disease can manifest itself at different levels within the organism. If the problems arise from trauma damage to the physical body, allopathic medicine offers miraculous
healing opportunities. If I break a bone, need a new heart or got torn-up in a car accident, you can bet
that I would seek an allopathic physician to help me heal. They can rebuild tissues and they can rebuild
organs and transplant organs and fix bones and all these things. That's trauma. They do miracles with
trauma and that's where, if you get in an accident and break your leg, you want a medical doctor.

However, if my dis-eases are the result of malfunctions occurring within the cell, such as cancer,
Alzheimer's, auto-immune disease, these dysfunctions arise in the operation of the cell's molecules and
atoms. Dysfunctions at these levels are controlled by mechanisms that operate in the energy-based
interactions of the quantum realm.

BL: We have two interdependent minds providing for our awareness and behavior. The most powerful
processor of information is the subconscious mind that runs between 80-90% of our lives. It is like an
autopilot in that it can run our day-to-day life without any input from the conscious mind. The conscious
mind is a small part of the processor, but nonetheless one of the most advanced parts of our brain. The
conscious mind can be used to drive the system serving a s 'manual' control mechanism, your thoughts
can actually run the body. With training, yogis for example can regulate all their bodily functions
including metabolism, heart rate, body temperature and behavior of the immune system. But because
consciousness can think about the past and delve into the future, most of the time our conscious mind is
engaged with such activities and is therefore not 'present' to run the show at the moment of now. That
is why the subconscious mind runs most of the functions and behaviors that characterize our lives.

However, most people are unaware of the fact that the primary behaviors that are engaged by the
subconscious mind were downloaded into our mind before we were 6 years of age. We acquire these
behaviors by observing our parents, our peers and our teachers. This means that most of our behavior is
actually a replay of other people's behavior' this is where conflict enters our lives because their
behaviors are generally not in our best interests.

The dangerous thing is that the behavioral 'tapes' programmed in our subconscious are other peoples'
behaviors and most of these behaviors were acquired so early in life, that we are not even consciously
aware that we have or even use these programmed behaviors. Many of these early acquired behaviors
are limiting, self-sabotaging programs. Your personal beliefs are in your conscious mind while the
subconscious mind is a repository previously learned behaviors and reflexive instincts. The minds are
separate and an awareness in the conscious mind has no necessary counterpart in the subconscious
mind. Also, while you might become aware of new things in your consciousness, that new knowledge
does NOT change preexisting programs in your subconscious. Old traits hang on. We may try to override
limiting subconscious behavior using the conscious mind, but it will never change conflicting beliefs
programmed in your subconscious mind. That's why people have to use so much willpower to override
the subconscious mind and that's where the issue of 'power' comes in, because the subconscious mind
is millions of times more powerful in processing data than is the conscious mind. In my book there is
data that reveals that 20 million bits of information are processed per second in the subconscious mind;
while only 40 bits of information are processed in the conscious mind for the same second.

Tai chi improves symptoms of Parkinson's disease

Tai chi comes up tops in a recent research on Parkinson's Disease.

Parkinson's disease is a nervous system disorder which commonly develops in humans of age 50 and above, however, many people, such as Hollywood actor Michael J. Fox have been diagnosed with this affliction much earlier in life. Parkinson's carries certain specific symptoms such as constant blinking, lack of facial expressions, shaking, loss of balance and coordination, and other irregular bodily reactions, and is caused primarily by the destruction of the nerve cells in the brain which makes dopamine, a neurotransmitter responsible for the transfer of pleasure and reward feelings in the center of the brain.

Medications may help control some things, like tremors, but many drugs are not as good at helping the so-called axial symptoms of Parkinson's disease, which include problems with balance and walking. It is for this reason that a recent study was completed at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore which showed significant improvements to these symptoms which have plagued Parkinson's patients for decades.

From reports, Researchers recently looked at the effect of tai chi on balance, gait, and daily function in patients with mild to moderate Parkinson's disease. The results suggest that tai chi is an effective intervention for patients with PD.

The study involved 195 patients, aged 40 to 85, with mild to moderate Parkinson's disease. The participants were randomized into three groups. One group was taught stretching, one resistance training that targeted muscles involved in balance and posture, and one a tai chi program tailored to Parkinson's symptoms.

The groups each exercised for one hour, twice a week, for six months. Each subject's posture and gait, ability to move accurately, and any falls were assessed at the start of the study and again at three months, six months, and three months after the completion of the exercise protocol.

Tai Chi Comes Out Tops

In standardized measures of balance, coordination, and gait, the tai chi group excelled. The study reported that "the tai chi group performed consistently better than the resistance-training and stretching groups in terms of maximum excursion [distance] and directional control ... [and] outperformed the resistance training group in stride length and functional reach." Tai chi was also more helpful than stretching, but not resistance training, in reducing the incidence of falls.

After six months, people who had been taking tai chi were able to lean farther forward or backward without stumbling or falling compared to those who had been doing resistance training or stretching. They were also better able to smoothly direct their movements. And they were able to take longer strides than people in the other two groups.

Like resistance training, tai chi helped people walk more swiftly, get up from a chair more quickly, and increased leg strength.

Perhaps the most impressive benefit of tai chi, however, was related to falls. Falls are common in people with Parkinson's, and they can cause serious injuries, including fractures and concussions. Studies show falls are the main cause of hospitalizations in Parkinson's patients. People in the tai chi group reported half the number of falls compared to those who were taking resistance training and two-thirds fewer falls than people who were doing light stretching exercises.

When patients were evaluated three months after the end of the exercise period, the positive effects of the tai chi training were still evident. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found no serious negative effects.

"The results from this study are quite impressive," says Ray Dorsey, MD, MBA, a neurologist and associate professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore.

"It's always difficult to compare results across studies, but the magnitude of the impact that they had is larger, in some cases, than what is seen with medications in Parkinson's," says Dorsey, who also directs the Movement Disorders Center and Neurology Telemedicine at Johns Hopkins. He was not involved in the research.

Mind-Body Connection

"This is a very encouraging study," says Chenchen Wang, MD, Msc, a rheumatologist and associate professor at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston.

Wang has studied the benefits of tai chi for osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, but she was not involved in the current research.

"Most of our previous studies have measured pain, depression, and anxiety, which are subjective measures. These results are very impressive because they used objective measurements," Wang tells WebMD.

It's not clear exactly why tai chi may offer an edge over more conventional kinds of exercise like resistance training, but researchers say they believe it probably has something to do with the mind-body connection that's encouraged throughout the poses.

"It's intentional movement. So every step you take, you are aware of it. We put quite a bit of emphasis on the self-awareness of the movement," says Fuzhong Li, PhD, senior scientist at the Oregon Research Institute, a nonprofit center for the study of human behavior in Eugene, Ore.

Fabrice Muamba's sudden death - cardiologists weigh in with scary information about Young People and Cardiac Arrest

Heart attack can happen to anyone -even the young and physically fit.  We reported the story in our blog just days ago.

According to the Telegraph reports the sudden cardiac arrest suffered by Fabrice Muamba was "an accident waiting to happen", according to a leading UK cardiologist with extensive knowledge of heart disorders in professional athletes. Muamba, 23, remains ill in intensive care after he had a sudden heart attack during an FA cup match last Saturday. 

"One of them is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy [HCM]," the cardiologist said. "This is a condition which can have a genetic basis, which may run in families or as an isolated case. It's where the left ventricle has totally disorganised and thickened. Severe cases can present as sudden death during exercise. It's an unusual but serious rhythm disorder. The heart shivers and shakes and stops beating properly."

According to the Mail online

But his case is not unique, according to the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).  Every week in the UK, 12 apparently fit and healthy young people, under the age of 35, die from undiagnosed cardiac conditions. 

Dr Steve Cox, Cardiac Risk in the Young Dr Steve Cox, director of screening at CRY, said Mr Muamba's case highlighted the need for regular screening.

'CRY wants all young people to be aware of the importance of cardiac screening and to have the opportunity to be tested,' he said.

'We already provide screening services for a number of professional sporting bodies, including the English Institute of Sport, the RFU, RFL, LTA and a number of FA teams including Manchester City.

'One in every 300 of the young people that CRY tests will be identified with a potentially life-threatening condition.'

The most common inherited heart condition is Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. It is not yet know what condition has affected Fabric Muamba

Muamba was 'lucky' in the sense the paramedics and the team doctor Jonathan Tobin was just seconds away  fully trained and immediately came to give CPR. Tobin gave Muamba mouth to mouth in an effort to restore his respiratory function, a procedure he administered in front of almost 40,000 football fans, reported the Telegraph.

"Fabrice was in a type of cardiac arrest where the heart is showing lots of electrical activity but no muscular activity. It's something that often responds to drugs and shocks.

"Fabrice had, in total, 15 shocks. He had a further 12 shocks in the ambulance [after three at the ground]."

The latest news today is that Fabrice is conscious and has spoken to family and friends.  It is still early days on his road to recovery.

Dr. Dwight Lundell - Heart Surgeon Spills the beans on What Really Causes Heart Disease

In his article earlier this month, Dr. Dwight Lundell a heart surgeon spills the beans and says "I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. "

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes

With some even very young, and extremely fit international footballer collapsing during a game, the problem of heart disease and heart attack needs to be understood better.

The old doctrines and old drugs for cholesterol for example are just off target.

"Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before."

Inflammation is the root cause of heart disease, and when we "have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. "

"Several times a day, every day, the foods we eat create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation."

"While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator -- inflammation in their arteries."

The good news is that animal fat (saturated fat) is not what it is thought to be, "The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today."

In that case what fat is "bad"?

"The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers."

More shocking revelations in Dr Lundell's book "The Great Cholesterol Lie".

Green tea and Brain health

As you age, its good to know about how to protect the health of your brain, & in this article you might want to step up your intake of green tea!

Green Tea.  One recent 2006 study reported in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that of 1003 Japanese men and women over age 70 - those who drank 4-6 cups of green tea per week (or 1 cup per day) lowered the incidence of problems with thinking, remembering and concentrating by 38%. And drinking 2 or more cups of green tea per day lowered the incidence of cognitive impairment by a massive 54%!

Parkinson's disease: Researchers discovered that green tea polyphenols protect dopamine neurons that increases with the amount consumed. They also show that this protective effect is mediated by inhibition of the ROS-NO pathway, a pathway that may contribute to cell death in Parkinson's. (Ref source). The BBC Website has also highlighted the potential for green tea in this area after good results from animal studies.

Others study show polyphenols influence glucose metabolism in part by helping the body regulate sensitivity to the hormone insulin, likely helps deliver a steady and even glucose supply to the brain.

Meditation and brain imaging results

Initially when learning Tai chi - students go through the conscious efforts of remembering the steps and hand movements, With practice and after mastering this initial effort, the student becomes more comfortable with Tai chi.  Soon, you realise that indeed the coordinated movements can become like a meditation - in that you are comfortable and absorbed in what you are doing.

MRI studies on the brain activity & benefits

In a study reported in Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital found changes in meditators.

Participating in an 8-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress.

Stress 'management' through meditation (the sitting variety) - study with functional MRI shows 'Participant-reported reductions in stress ..were correlated with decreased grey-matter density in the amygdala, which is known to play an important role in anxiety and stress.'

Note that Mindful Meditation typically involves improving the attention and concentration (as in anapana practice or watching the breath).  On the other hand Body awareness, in turn, helps us to recognize the emotions and sensations we are experiencing.

Free radical & anti-oxidation effect of Kangen (ionised) water

Prof Sanetaka Shirahata

Free radicals are considered to cause extensive oxidative damage to tissues and cause damages and aging in our tissues and organs.

Anti-oxidants is the popular word to describe the substances that mop up the free radical reactions.  Natural diet (fruits, veggies) and supplements (fish oil, vitamin C etc).

According to Wikipedia, antioxidants are widely used as ingredients in dietary supplements and have been investigated for the prevention of diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease.

In research published by Prof Sanetaka Shirahata, of Kyushu University ( Laboratory of Cellular Regulation Technology), in 1997, he says that the ideal scavenger for active oxygen should be 'active hydrogen', H (H+ + e‐).

Their findings are that indeed that the electrolyzed water can scavenge the free radicals.

Baby Dies After 9 Vaccines in One Day

Its another sad story of vaccine injury - in this case death just one week after her vaccinations.  Our doctor friends recommend, where possible to have single vaccinations (not triples, or in this case 9 vaccinations!). Also make sure the child is not immune compromised (sick) when he or she is due for her jabs.  If the child is sick - reschedule.

You read correct. 9 vaccines in one day - and that's a big problem. But, there's a bigger problem. Medical authorities denying vaccines had a thing to do with this little girl's death!

From Vac Truth:

Stacy and Lesly were born one month premature by Caesarean section and spent the next four days in an incubator. Stacy needed resuscitation at birth.

Following medical advice parents Sirjacobs and Dupont decided to have the twins vaccinated. Stacy was slightly unwell with a cold on the day of her vaccinations but doctors assured her parents that it was safe to give her the vaccinations.

(It is worth noting that there is a history of Sudden Infant Death and allergies in the family. The twins were being prescribed a milk supplement due to a milk allergy at the time Stacy became ill)

The twins received Prevenar, a vaccine against meningitis and pneumonia, Infanrix Hexa, a six in one vaccination for diphtheria, tetanus, polio, pertussis, hepatitis B and Haemophilus type B, and finally the Rotarix, a preventive vaccine for gastroenteritis.

This means that these tiny vulnerable babies received a staggering nine vaccines in one day, vaccines that may have caused one of them to die.

A week after her vaccinations Stacy became unwell with a fever of 39.9 degrees C. Her parents decided to administer Perdolan to lower her fever. As their daughter was still very poorly they called the hospital who advised them to bring their daughter in.

The medical staff diagnosed Stacy with a slight chest infection and infection in her blood and told her parents not to worry as this was "not serious". Stacy was then given medication and put on a drip feed and kept in for observation.

Stacy's father informed me that all links to the vaccines were strongly denied.

Despite Stacy having a heartbeat of 200 to 230 beats per minute the pediatrician told her parents that she was fine and that she was probably suffering from gastroenteritis (an illness that this little girl had been vaccinated against!).

The worried couple decided not to leave their daughter and remained by her bedside. During the evening they informed the nurse that their daughter had diarrhea but to their astonishment, they were told that the baby had been changed and they were to let her get some sleep and change her when she woke up.

During the night, Stacy continued to suffer 'abnormal diarrhea', and despite frantic pleas from her parents the nurse refused to do anything, even though by this time Stacy was restless and in obvious distress. Stacy's father says that they reported to nursing staff that Stacy was covered in small red spots and had difficulty breathing.

According to Stacy's father, Stacy's medical records states that at 19.45 a doctor telephoned his brother to ask his permission to do a lumbar puncture and put Stacy on the antibiotic Ampire, while they were awaiting the results. Authorization was denied …

Stacy died a short time later.

Stacy's father says: (translated from French by Google translate)


"The nurse 23h phone to the pediatrician to inform him that the little Stacy is worse, this one happens to 11:45 p.m. ET begins to make attempts at resuscitation. He informed at the time the parents that the baby is not breathing on their own, and asks them to leave the room. Would follow three hours, during which everything is sought to revive the girl, who is declared dead at 3am. But in fact, the heart stopped beating Stacy at midnight.

The pediatrician then began to explain to parents that the little one died of sepsis and meningitis, while in order to make such a diagnosis, it would have had to do a lumbar puncture which was not performed, or that would have required at least one blood culture or stool, the results will not be known until 3 or 4 days".


Stacy's death was recorded as: Meningitis.

It is interesting and extremely sad that this little girl died of an illness that she was vaccinated against just one week before she died. It is obvious from the information that I have from the father that this tiny vulnerable baby was left to suffer in considerable pain, dirty and in distress, whilst the pleas of her parents were ignored.

Vaccinations are administered to a child based on the age of the child from the day that they are born. Due to the advances in medicine, babies are being saved at an earlier and earlier stage in their development. We know that Stacy was born at approx one month premature, which means that she was given her eight week old vaccinations at just a month old; she was also unwell at the time she was vaccinated. It is my opinion that her small immature immune system could not cope with the onslaught of deadly toxins and chemicals that are in our vaccines today.

Stacy's devastated parents are so outraged by what they have discovered since their baby's death, that they are now asking the world to join them in a worldwide protest. They want the world to hold a global event in memory of Stacy and the many hundreds of children that have been killed or injured by vaccinations worldwide. They feel that vaccine deaths are being covered up and ask the citizens of the world to stand united for one day against vaccine damage. They say:

We are the parents of Stacy, who died a week after HER first vaccines; we are organizing a global event in honor of Stacy, Nova and all other vaccine victims worldwide. We are summoning every citizen of every country to take to the streets in their own cities, towns and villages: things must now change!

Remember to invite local journalists, the media and any victims or parents of victims prepared to tell their story. Make placards, banners and signs: UNCENSORED VACCINE INFORMATION, FREEDOM OF CHOICE!

The event is to be held on the January 20th 2012. If it is not possible for you to attend one of the many protests that are being held, then perhaps you could go along to your local church and light a candle to register your protest at what is happening around the world.

Sirjacobs and Dupont are right; something radical does need to be done to make the authorities listen to parents

Vaccine deaths are being reported around the world at an alarming rate. In May 2010 The Times of India (2) reported that 128 deaths had occurred during the previous year and the figure appeared to be rising with each year. Their report suggested that the Indian government was covering up vaccine deaths. Arun Ram reporting for the Times wrote:

"The government tries to pass on every death as unrelated to vaccine. It sometimes merely does a culture of the vaccine in question. Just because a vaccine is not found to be contaminated, it doesn't mean the vaccine has not caused the death," says Dr Puliyel.

In March 2011 Neil Z miller (3) wrote that in the USA more than 2,000 babies died after receiving pneumococcal and Hib vaccines and yet nothing whatsoever was done. He reported that whilst these vaccines were suspended in Japan after just four deaths, the news of over 2000 deaths in the USA was barely even reported. According to Miller Paul Offit had called the Japanese authorities foolish, saying that the babies probably died of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). In fact he passed their deaths off as anything he could, except the vaccines that is. Miller wrote:

According to Paul Offit, media spokesperson for the vaccine industry, "the Japanese Ministry of Health was foolish to suspend the Hib and pneumococcal programs." Offit thinks the deaths were probably caused by SIDS, or underlying conditions, or another cause – anything except the vaccines. Often, children get sick and die by chance.

Actually, Paul Offit could be right, many of the vaccinated babies could be dying as a result of SIDS because in May 2011 an interesting article hit the internet by storm stating that a study published in the Journal of Human and Experimental Toxicology found that the countries that administered the highest number of vaccines during the first year of life experienced higher infant mortality rates. (4)

This is not new because studies have been stating that vaccines were causing children to die for many years.

The Pourcyrous study (5) was the first study to examine the impact of multi-vaccinations on the immature brain. It is clear from the results of this study that the more vaccines a child has, the larger impact the vaccines have on the child's brain.  Massroor Pourcyrous, MD,  Sheldon B. Korones, MD,  Kristopher L. Arheart PhD,  Henrietta S. Bada, MD studied 239 preterm infants who were given either a single vaccine or multiple vaccines, their results are as follows:

Abnormal elevation of CRP level occurred in 85% of infants administered multiple vaccines and up to 70% of those given a single vaccine. Overall, 16% of infants had vaccine-associated cardiorespiratory events within 48 hours postimmunization. In logistic regression analysis, abnormal CRP values were associated with multiple vaccines (OR, 15.77; 95% CI 5.10-48.77) and severe intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) (OR, 2.28; 95% CI 1.02-5.13). Cardiorespiratory events were associated marginally with receipt of multiple injections (OR, 3.62; 95% CI 0.99-13.25) and significantly with gastroesophageal reflux (GER) (OR, 4.76; 95% CI 1.22-18.52).

This study has had so much impact that it has now being quoted in papers and books on adverse reactions to vaccines and SIDS worldwide.

As today saw the news that yet another vaccine is to be added to babies vaccine schedule, the Meningitis B vaccine (6), we to ask ourselves how many Stacy's will it take before action is taken?

This article has been written in memory of Stacy Sirjacobs and the many hundreds of babies who have lost their life after receiving what the governments tell us are 'safe vaccines'.

Tai Chi - an appreciation - by Nesa Arumugam

"Being good at Tai Chi Chuan does not mean being prepared for the one time in ten years that someone may actually physically attack you, while you allow yourself to be constantly battered and  thrown by the daily challenges at work, in your family, in your life. . . .
    The most effective form of self-defence is learning to remove the buttons that my myriad daily "attackers" push to throw me off-balance. I must learn to relax my fear . . . . ."
Gateway to the Miraculous (Further Explorations in the Tao of Cheng Man-ching) by Wolfe Lowenthal

The above passage expresses a truth about Tai Chi I have come to realise with an attitude of gratitude to this art and my Sifu, E.K. Yeap, who introduced me to it. At the age of 71 years you can still be thrown off balance by those very things by family and life. I was able to pull myself out of a near emotional breakdown recently in a relatively shorter time than it would have taken someone less exposed to Tai Chi. I definitely attribute that to the Tai Chi principle of being like the roly-poly doll that bounces back however you try to push it down because your strength is in being rooted softly but deeply, and centre of balance is maintained steadily. This applies to emotional centering and rooting that arises from physical balance.

This came on top of realising that in my short acquaintance with Tai Chi over the last 2 ½ years I had built up "strength in the marrow of the bones". I had stumped my foot on a hard and heavy concrete block. This would have crushed the bones of the big toe in one of my age according to my doctor who was with me. But, after the initial killing pain and swelling of the first day, my toe suffered no great injury and in a couple of days was back to normal. Strange as it sounded when I first came to know of Tai Chi strengthening bones and storing resilience in the bone marrow, I now realise these are more than words. My faith in the art as taught by my Sifu is not misplaced!

Articles: Brain injury - the link between crawling and walking

Some eye opening articles relating to brain injury & subsequent rehabilitation from - stroke patients,or from trauma on the brain from blows or fall, infants with brain injury - oxygen deprivation etc, and the ability to turn > creep/crawl > walk.

2) The video below shows the various movements on the floor ( by healthy infants in this case) - showing what I feel is important part of rehabilitation - exercises ON THE FLOOR.  In this case - head/body arching, hand support, turning, creeping, crawling, butt scooting, etc.

3) The subsequent article and video further down below is the amazing story of the recovery of a 67year old man who was paralysed and could not walk or talk and though his son(s) he recovered - initially though crawling.This was I believe in the 1960s.  The son later discovered from autopsy that the fathers brain was severely damaged, and hence it was a re-wiring that helped the latter regain his abilities.

In his book, The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge, M.D. relates the brain plasticity miracle of Pedro.

At the age of sixty-five, Pedro Bach-y-Rita had suffered a massive stroke that paralyzed his face and half of his body.
He was unable to talk or walk, and his sons Paul and George were told there was no hope for recovery," and that Pedro would have to go into an institution.

Dr. Paul Bach-y-Rita was a neuroscientist and rehabilitation physician, and also a pioneer in promoting the understanding that the human brain has an amazing ability to adapt and change itself; what we now know as brain plasticity.

At first George, then a medical student in Mexico, arranged rehabilitation for his father at a local hospital, which offered a typical four-week therapy.

Pedro showed very little progress, and George decided to have him come and live with him so he could provide additional therapy.

He knew nothing about rehabilitation, and his ignorance turned out to be a blessing. He succeeded by breaking all of the current rules.

"I decided that instead of teaching my father to walk, I was going to teach him first to crawl" George said. "I told my father, 'You started off crawling. You are going to have to crawl again for a while.' The only model I had was how babies learn."

As soon as Pedro could support himself, George had him crawl with his weak shoulder and arm supported by a wall.
Pedro loved gardening, and Paul had him practicing outside, which led to problems with the neighbors who thought it was unseemly to make the professor crawl like a dog.
It took many hours each day, but gradually Pedro went from crawling to moving on his knees to standing and finally to walking.

Pedro struggled with speech on his own, and after three months it began coming back.
He learned to type normally and at the end of a year he was able to return to full-time teaching at City College in New York.

Pedro was active for seven more years until, while climbing in the Colombia Mountains, he suffered a heart attack.
