Hydrocephalus

Hydrocephalus is said to be water on the brain, but how in the world would water get in the brain in order to be on the brain?

Hydrocephalus is none other than toxic fluid waste in the brain and therefore on the brain.

But before we go really deep on the matter, let’s explain hydrocephalus from a medical perspective.

Hydrocephalus. A pathologic condition characterized by an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid, usually under increased pressure, within the cranial vault and subsequent dilatation of the ventricles. Interference with the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid may be caused by increased secretion of the fluid, obstruction within the ventricular system (noncommunicating or extraventricular hydrocephalus), resulting from developmental anomalies, infection, trauma, or brain tumors. Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd edition, p. 581

Conditions such as “water on the brain” and “water on the knee” are misnomers. The body is naturally made of 80% water so how could water harm the brain or knee or any other part of the body? We know water saturated in the lungs would be harmful, well, if it was poured into the lungs, or, if someone drowned. Yeah, so water in the lungs (outside of the tissues of the lungs, that is) would be a concern.

Hydrocephalus is a build up of fluid in the brain. Specifically, fluid fills up in the brain’s right and/or left ventricles, causing deformation of the skull.

Causes and Risk Factors

The condition is caused by an imbalance in how much cerebrospinal fluid is produced and how much absorbed in the blood stream.

Risk factors include:

  • Head injury
  • Nervous system infections
  • Stroke or bleeding in the brain
  • Brain tumors
  • Spinal cord tumors
  • Premature birth

Symptoms

Hydrocephalus is usually indicated by these symptoms:

  • A unusually large head
  • A bulge on the skull
  • Soft spots on the top of the head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sleepiness
  • Trouble eating
  • Seizures

Healing Hydrocephalus Naturally

Western medicine treatment protocols consists almost exclusively of surgical intervention to correct the ventricular obstruction, reduce the production of cerebrospinal fluid, or shunt the excess fluid by ventricular bypass to the right atrium of the heart or to the peritoneal cavity.

Supporting options include:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Developmental therapy

Dietary Intervention
A high alkaline diet may help manage hydrocephalus. It consists of 80% alkaline foods (which are fruits and vegetables) and 20% acidic foods, and 80% raw foods (preferably organic) and 20% cooked foods (vegan in nature – no meat and/or dairy products).

Plenty of good drinking water should be consumed daily, especially alkaline water (preferably ozonated), and vegetable juice as well should be consumed daily or as often as possible.

    Q: My cousin has been diagnosed with having leakage in the brain (cranial fluid depleting), which causes blindness in her left eye. Her neurologist told her to cut out the meat, but she can eat shrimp and salmon(although I'm not sure why he said salmon, and shrimp which is a meat). Cut out dairy products, and also she should use natural products on her hair. Overall I think he gave her good advice, but I wanted to get your take on it. What else should she do and not do? Detoxing first, right?

    A:

    Detox with the Full Body Detox followed by daily regimen consisting of Nerves Formula, Brain Tuner, and CNS Formula.

    Q: Great article. Doctors and mothers often say that if a fever gets too high that it can cause brain damage. As I was writing the previous sentence- the answer intuitively came to me. The brain can get "cooked" if there isn't enough moisture in the body. So drinking a TON of water is imperative.

    A:

    THANK YOU, Beloved!

    Doctors taught scared ignorant mothers to believe that a high fever (if not brought down) can cause brain damage so as to sell fever medicine. Everything in Western medicine is based upon fear, fear, fear! Abd for what? PROFIT and CONTROL!

    The body intelligence would never cook the brain unless a person's dharma was so severe that the brain and the body would do the most craziest things to help kill the person so as to prevent/end the misery and suffering and to stop the severe breach of contract (as we contracted for our lives and physical body in this present incarnation).

    Q: I have a 17 years old daughter that is taking the brain toner for her epileptic seizures for about a month now. I wanted to know how long with the effects take place to allow sufficient oxygen to her brain, and will the seizures eventually cease? My daughter is on a herbal, and conscious diet, but I am still working on her eating out to restaurants every now and then. Working on her getting the proper rest each day, since she is a junior in high school. Please let me know if there is anything else I need to do, since she did have a small seizure today, which is better than the ones she has had in the past. I know it will take some time for the brain toner to work.

    A:

    Patience is required in healing, Beloved! Let nature take her natural course! Also, there may be underlying metaphysical causative factors for the seizures. I would suggest adding Ethereal Bliss with Brain Tuner, and she should also drink the Brain Tuner Tea along with taking the capsules. These are optional, but I do recommend them, at least to experiment with in hopes of facilitating elimination of the seizures. Have her perform deep breathing exercises on a daily basis too! A raw foods/vegan diet is BEST for her too! Undoubtedly so! Those restaurants are using some very dangerous chemicals. Drive this point home to her!

    Q: I am writing for advice about a brain tumor. My daughter, 14, was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade II brain tumor (fibrillary astrocytoma). A neurosurgeon placed a "shunt" in her head a week ago. Speaking with a number of physicians in Atlanta that specialize in pediatric neurology, it seems our options are limited, and we've been directed to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, for a 6 week treatment of radiation and chemotherapy (tarceva). We know there are risks, but we seem to have no other choice in the conventional medicine arena. Here are my questions. What holistic approach could we take? The tumor is the size of an orange and is growing around her brain like a vine on a bush. It is also bithalamic, that is, covering both her left and right thalamus. She is an honor student, but we are seeing signs of some erosion i.e. she takes frequent naps, does not seem to know when to take herself to the restroom, and is running fevers. The doctors have her on steroids to help with the swelling of her three recent operations as well as something else. My preference is to try to the holistic approach first, but we don't have a lot of time. What are the time-frames associated with your treatment? I know something of this nature will take some time to take effect. I should mention that the prognosis is not very promising.

    A:

    Don't worry about time, just take a natural course. Chemo and radiation will do the poor child in. This would poison her. But this is you guy's choice here! I would give the child BRAIN TUNER TEA daily (2 cups daily) and DETOX TEA nightly. Stop feeding the tumor by giving the child bad food, i.e. meat, eggs, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc.

    Q: I gave my daughter 1 capsule of BRAIN TUNER every morning for about two weeks now. She now has a mild to average seizure every day instead of twice or three times a week. And since taken this Brain Tuner two weeks ago she has had two bad attacked. Normally she will get a bad attack every 2 - 3 weeks once. Most of her attack come during her sleep or during an afternoon nap, i.e. she will wake up from this sleep/nap and stay still for 30 sec - 1 minutes and the attack will come and her entire palms and feet will turn cold and heart starting to beat very fast. And once in a while if she does not get enough sleep she will get a hard attack out of the blue during the day otherwise most of the seizure attack during her sleep. Does this Brain Tuner stimulate her brain and causes the attack? What other remedy should I take to cut down this seizure?

    A:

    Sounds like the body (brain) is being greatly regulated, but if the BRAIN TUNER is speeding up the attack of seizures, abstain from using it and just give OXY-DROPS in glass or cup or water (20 drops per cup/glass). Normally a thing increases before it decreases but if this causes concern then abstain and try something else.

    Q: I just purchased the FULL BODY DETOX for myself. But I need something for my 35 year old Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) son. He was in a motorcycle accident on April 14, 2007. He hit his head real hard. He injured his head all over. He was not wearing a helmet. This was his first time getting on a motorcycle without a helmet. First, Doctors said he would be dead in 3 days. Well, since he was still alive after 4 weeks they said that he would live in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. Well, now it's been 10 months and he is talking, asking questions, standing up on his good leg, because his right leg and arm is contracted. He is still out there a little but he is progressing very well. His speech is slurred a bit. He can feed himself a little, but like I said he is still out there some what. Oh, going to the bathroom is a hit and miss. Sometimes he will tell you he has to go and sometimes he will not. Then, sometimes he will tell you he has to go and then he will tell you it was a false alarm. We still put diapers on him. I still change him and he has not become ashamed yet. So I was just wondering if you have something for his brain injuries. His long term memory is getting there, but short term memory is short.

    A:

    Doctors are a straight mess, specializing in negativity! They taint hope, optimism, and inspiration. Have your son take Dherbs.Com NERVES FORMULA (3 caps every night), CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA (3 caps daily), and BRAIN TUNER (6 caps daily) and drink the BRAIN TUNER TEA (1-2 cups daily) and he'll come back a round. Stay positive! Healing is a miracle, so claim and welcome it!

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: I had my stroke in 2003, as a result of brain surgery. If the stroke was from surgery, tissue was damaged. What would you suggest? Raw food diet & herbs?

    Q: I was reading about a famous black author who died of brain cancer and I wanted to know what does it mean on a metaphysical level? Cancer of the brain, breast, colon, mouth. What does this signify other than extreme toxicity? What does poor circulation mean metaphysically speaking? Do you think there is a link between hair dyes, hair relaxers (burners) and brain cancer and lupus among black females. This is "off the cuff" but I hate seeing black females with straightened hair and hair coloring. I really hate it. I hate long claws (fake fingernails).

    A:

    Metaphysically, cancer denotes a feeling being eaten up (on the inside) by some emotion or emotions, always negative emotions. Mouth cancer - the person refused to speak out their hurt, anger, pain, etc. Breast cancer - the female failed to get things off of her chest or neglected caring for herself (nurturing herself, her wounds and pains, etc.). Colon cancer - the person couldn't stomach things but failed to release what was emotionally eating away at them.

    Metaphysically speaking, poor circulation means your "life flow" is stagnant due to the burdens of life "weighing you down." Most people with poor circulation have weight issues. In addition they may be "poor" and their cash flow does not "circulate" the way they'd would like and so worries about bills and other financial responsibility makes them eat away their worries whereby they gain weight and hamper their bodily circulation.

    And yes, chemicals in hair products (dyes, conditioners, relaxers) are playing a role in certain cancers of the head (i.e. brain cancer).
