Christopher Lloyd on the Wright Stuff

The Wright Stuff

Home Educators, so often pictured by the press as crazies who have slipped off the system, are vigorously defended by world history author Christopher Lloyd in this 11 minute interview for Channel’s 5’s Matthew Wright.

Videos of the different Homeschooling Philosophies and Successes

Recently I wrote two letters to the National Office about two natural learning exemption applications that were not understood by the local offices (Lower Hutt and Auckland). As most of you know, now, there is a new lady processing exemptions in Auckland who is just learning about all of the different approaches. So we need to be a little understanding but at the same time we can use current exemption applications as a training tool for her.

Part of an email from Lucy (National MoE Office):

“Your points raised are very valid and I would like them to be addressed. At our next meeting with the regional homeschooling staff I am going to show staff a video of the different homeschooling philosophies and successes to help with the awareness and understanding of different philosophies when processing applications. If you know of any short videos that you think would be good, please do not hesitate to send me the links.”

Here are some links people have shared with me so far:

Please share below your favourite SHORT videos to help with the awareness and understanding of different philosophies when processing applications. I would like to just choose a few out of all the ones shared that show the variety of different approaches to home education.

Health Curriculum: How to prevent and cure Cancer and other diseases

This series is excellent and I highly recommend that you all watch these Youtube videos – the first five are up on Youtube and the rest will go up one a day (2pm in New Zealand). The first one will probably be taken down soon. It was only meant to be up for free for 24 hours. They will be for sale after the series finishes. Ty is a personal friend of ours. He and his family came to our daughter Genevieve’s wedding. They lived in NZ for about a year. Ty and Charleen home educate their children.

Find out how to prevent and treat cancer 100% naturally, watch the trailer for FREE today. Live docu-series event…thetruthaboutcancer.com
1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rc1rtIxvkao – History, what is cancer and Chemo
2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdR9hYtvLBI - Immune system. A Dr in this video says that there may be a case for Chemo to help reduce the cancer so that the immunue system can take over and do its work of getting rid of cancer. They all say that there is NO cure for cancer. It is all about building up the immune system so that it can do its job of killing the cancer.
3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQpWH-LR6Gki – “Eliminate these dirty dozen to prevent cancer” “GMO’s” are dangerous foods which are not grown or raised, they are created in a lab environment and tweaked to create a species not found in nature. Even though GMO’s have gotten a lot more press over the past few years I bet you didn’t know that over 70% of processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients! Avoid these foods – Read Ty’s report:  Read it here for free
4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saohk3hu2_M
- Which detoxification treatments were actually in the Merck Manual until the 1970s – (@ 22:10)
- That the lymphatic system is the most overlooked “detox” system in the body (@ 45:00)
5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L03t6STTjZQ – “Nature’s Pharmacy” For thousands of years, humans have used the plant life around them to help cure their ailments. If you walk into the woods, you will be hard pressed to find anything that’s not medicine. We’ll learn about how natural food really can be our medicine. We’ll learn which foods to avoid and which ones to eat. We’ll learn about vitamin and mineral deficiencies and how to properly correct them with foods and herbs. And we’ll also learn about which types of sugars feed cancer and which types don’t. (we will want to see this for sure)
1. @ 15:25 – learn the difference between left-spin and right-spin sugar molecules and which one feeds cancer cells and which one is healthy
2. @ 53:10 – learn how seeds help defeat cancer by targeting cancer stem cells
3. @ 57:00 – discover how this common emotion stimulates the immune system for 24 hours while another common emotion suppresses immunity for 6 hours
6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VO7V4nDnCM: “Clean Foods & The Cancer Free Diet”. We all know that “you are what you eat” and in this episode we’re going to show you exactly how to eat in a way that will destroy cancer cells. This is an amazing show that teaches you how to eat and use nutrition to prevent cancer, and also how to eat to treat cancer too. Here’s a small sample of the powerful content in this eipsode
1. @ 10:50 – Could cervical cancer be nothing more than a nutritional deficiency disease?
2. @ 13:23 – Is the Food Pyramid for the Standard American Diet (SAD) really upside down?
3. @ 33:40 – Learn the difference between “good” and “bad” salt and how “good salt” is essential for proper functioning of the immune system and hormones
4. @39:30 – Discover what type of water acts as an antioxidant to your body
5. @ 51:51 – Learn why there are more anti-cancer compounds in a whole food diet than in your local oncology center
7.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7uzj8-Dt3E:  “Do’s & Don’ts” – Proven Treatment Protocols Part 1. This is one of those episodes that you’ll want to have a pen and paper handy for taking notes. In fact, the next 3 episodes are all about specific cancer treatments and protocols shared by the doctors that created/use them everyday to save thousands of lives.

From Ty: One thing that I really want everyone to understand is that
this series is a “Quest for the Cures” (plural).

Meaning… there’s not just one way, or one magic pill, or one protocol that will work for everyone.

Depending on ones genetics, blood type, race, gender, medical history, type of cancer, and other factors, will determine what works and what doesn’t.

Not to mention, we’ve interviewed 51 experts, to get their opinions and expertise, and not all 51 will agree 100% on every single thing.

And that’s okay…

If they all agreed on the same magic pill, then our show would only be 1 episode long :-)

So, please keep in mind that our mission is to investigate and educate, so that YOU (and everyone you love) can make an informed decision if they’re ever faced with a cancer diagnoses.

With that said, you’re about to enjoy 3 nights of proven treatment protocols from the doctors that use them to save lives every single
day.

8. http://thetruthaboutcancer.com/live/episode8.php EPISODE 8: Proven Treatment Protocols Part 2  (this link will change when Episode 9 goes up at 2pm on Tuesday)

Episode 9:  Proven Treatment Protocols Part 3
(Airs Tuesday October 22nd)

Episode 10: Doctor’s Orders (now playing)
(Airs Wednesday October 23rd) (this link will change when Episode 11 goes up at 2pm T0day)

Ever wonder what your doctor would do if he/she were diagnosed
with Cancer?

Want to hear from doctors who’ve had cancer and how they treated
it?

Some comments from people who have watched this Episode:

“I have to say that I was totally blown away by the revelations in tonight’s
episode, 10. Sadly, it has caused me even greater regret when I think of
the path my husband was directed to take (chemo., radiation, surgery)…
Cancer Sucks, but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence if people are
empowered with the knowledge of Natural & Alternative Treatments! Looking
forward to tomorrow night episode and am feeling very blessed to have
been allowed to view and become better educated”

“I am really enjoying listening to this series – making educated choices should
the situation ever arise. The doctors and professionals who appear on these
videos are amazing with their wealth of knowledge.”

“Great to learn about the 7 steps to prevent cancer, from Dr Veronique
Desaulniers. Thank you!”

Every one of these episodes is powerful and packed full of great, usable
content. Be sure to watch Episode 10 today before 2pm.

Episode 11: How to Survive and Thrive 
(Airs Thursday October 24th) starts at 2pm today and can be watched for 24 hours.

Ty Charlene Bollinger

Ty has pulled all the advice in the world together about cancer into this series. He interviews a lot of different people.

This is also good for us too. For those who don’t have cancer as a preventative and for those who have had cancer to keep cancer from returning.

SCHOOLING THE WORLD: THE WHITE MAN’S LAST BURDEN

If you wanted to change an ancient culture in a generation, how would you do it?

You would change the way it educates its children.

The U.S. Government knew this in the 19th century when it forced Native American children into government boarding schools. Today, volunteers build schools in traditional societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a ‘better’ life for indigenous children.

But is this true? What really happens when we replace a traditional culture’s way of learning and understanding the world with our own? SCHOOLING THE WORLD takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world’s last sustainable indigenous cultures.

Beautifully shot on location in the Buddhist culture of Ladakh in the northern Indian Himalayas, the film weaves the voices of Ladakhi people through a conversation between four carefully chosen original thinkers; anthropologist and ethnobotanist Wade Davis, a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence; Helena Norberg-Hodge and Vandana Shiva, both recipients of the Right Livelihood Award for their work with traditional peoples in India; and Manish Jain, a former architect of education programs with UNESCO, USAID, and the World Bank.

The film examines the hidden assumption of cultural superiority behind education aid projects, which overtly aim to help children “escape” to a “better life” — despite mounting evidence of the environmental, social, and mental health costs of our own modern consumer lifestyles, from epidemic rates of childhood depression and substance abuse to pollution and climate change.

It looks at the failure of institutional education to deliver on its promise of a way out of poverty — here in the United States as well as in the so-called “developing” world.

And it questions our very definitions of wealth and poverty — and of knowledge and ignorance — as it uncovers the role of schools in the destruction of traditional sustainable agricultural and ecological knowledge, in the breakup of extended families and communities, and in the devaluation of elders and ancient spiritual traditions.

Finally, SCHOOLING THE WORLD calls for a “deeper dialogue” between cultures, suggesting that we have at least as much to learn as we have to teach, and that these ancient sustainable societies may harbor knowledge which is vital for our own survival in the coming millennia.

LOST PEOPLE FILMS presents SCHOOLING THE WORLD: THE WHITE MAN’S LAST BURDEN / photography JIM HURST and BEN KNIGHT / sound recording JIM HURST / produced by NEAL MARLENS, JIM HURST, and MARK GROSSAN / directed and edited by CAROL BLACK / featuring WADE DAVIS, HELENA NORBERG-HODGE, VANDANA SHIVA, MANISH JAIN, & DOLMA TSERING / 65 minutes
