Television, Heart Issues, Diabetes And The Cancer State Of Mind


“Watching Tv” by Sandra Vos

It would be easy to tout facts such as 80% of sedentary American adults watch 3.5 hours of television a day. I could also describe how 92% of all Americans have a television set in their home which consumes more than half of their available leisure time. These facts are fairly well known.

However, a study done at the National Cancer Institute where 221,000 active individuals between the ages of 40-71 years of age still showed a predisposition to heart disease and cancer where T.V. was a 3-4 hour daily habit. This may not be such common knowledge. Also, did you know that chronic television watching is linked to incidences of  diabetes, obesity, influenza/pneumonia, Parkinson’s and liver issues as well?

Now, if I open the pages of Michael J. Lincoln’s book, “Messages From The Body” and review the reasons for a few of these diseases cited above, you might perceive the link to how watching television precipitates the state of mind before the disease manifests on the physical level. Here are excerpts from Lincoln’s book from each section specified:

  • Cancer – “Powerlessness-rage.” They feel overwhelmed and devastated, with a sense of intense emptiness in their life. There has been many years of inner conflict, guilt, hurt, grief, despair, resentment, confusion and/or tension surrounding their deepest personal issues. It is connected with feelings of hopelessness, inadequacy, helplessness and self-rejection. They see no possibility of relevance or effectiveness from the Cosmic realm. They have disharmonious attitudes towards parts of themselves that they don’t want to deal with.”  
  • Heart Issues – “They are not expressing and manifesting love with others-now and/or before. They operate out of scarcity assumptions and the belief in constricting limitations. They tend to judge themselves a failure and therefore work furiously to accomplish on the job and to dominate others. They are full of tension, anxiety, resentment and suppressed aggression. Underneath, they are frightened children full of regrets, sorrow and remorse for a life wasted and a “vast wasteland” experience. They are the product of highly judgmental and demanding parenting that never gave them the message that they were good enough.
  • Diabetes – “Boulevard of broken dreams.” They are longing for what might have been in their life, and they are in a state of emotional shock. They have a deep dissatisfaction with their life and an accompanying self-dislike. There is intense sorrow and a sense of starving to death in the midst of plenty, of being surrounded by most of the things that have meaning without their being available to them. They have a great deal of despairing desperation, depression and demoralization. It’s a “. . . but not for me” attitude that is often accompanied by a fair amount of feeling very sorry for themselves. There is no sweetness left in life for them, and there is insufficient joy in their life.

Our predecessor, Rudolf Steiner, was a Goethean scientist who spoke liberally about stages of development in seven year cycles. He cited that when a child is first born, they’re most focused on physical development. It takes a lot of internal, mineral, forces to grow a body from its total dependency on Mom and Dad to be able to first sit, then crawl, run and then at 50-70 pounds at age 7, dribble a basketball with any kind of coordination.

From the ages of  7-14, Steiner speaks to how we are more etherically developing our capacity to receive impressions. This is the time in our development when we’re naturally and resonantly ready to be engaged more with art, story (fairy tales and putting on plays), music, eurythmy (a type of rhythmical, dance-like movement mostly found in Waldorf Schools), creativity (watercolors, drawing, sculpting, etc.), hand-work (knitting for metabolic limb coordination), sport (healthy competition) and fully actuating our imaginal forces through the etheric body.


From 14 to 21 we develop our astral bodies through actualizing our desires, goals, dreams through fantasy and socialization. This is when we experience the onset of puberty and hopefully a healthy unfolding of our sexuality. However, “Waldorf educators saw a direct link to this astral body and the watching of television. The scenes, the lack of imagination involved, and the topics covered on most channels would obviously bring on the astral stage of the body at an early age from the outside in. This was one reason that television was banned from Waldorf schools. Modern researchers, however, have just recently made this connection when they recently announced, “Watching Television may Quicken the Onset of Puberty” (Dr. Laura Markham, 2006).

In Markham’s article, based on 35 different research studies she states that this connection has a lot to do with the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain, which plays a key role in regulating the body’s internal clock. Light emitted by television screens suppresses melatonin levels in the blood, which disrupts sleep patterns of children and teens as well as the age at which they enter puberty. It is also interesting to note that the problems of early-onset puberty have baffled researchers since 1950. This was the same date in which televisions became widely owned in the United States.”

On one Waldorf school website from Ireland they state, “Television, as well as film, videos, DVDs, recorded music, computers and electronic games have a very powerful effect on children. It can take several days for the effects of a single video to wear off. If children are watching every day, the effects never wear off at all; many children now speak a lot of the time in ‘cartoon’ voices, make ‘sound effects’ to accompany their jerky movements (kicking, punching) and compulsively repeat lines from videos they have seen over and over again. This is now seen as normal childish behavior, but it really comes from these media, not from the children themselves.”  I once served an Autistic child who could “script” word for word every Disney movie she’d ever seen!

The other consideration is that we need time in order to process impressions as our thoughts go through a cycle of maturation. Watching television inhibits this natural process. Steiner stated that, “What is learned more slowly at any given age is more surely and healthily absorbed by the organism, than what is crammed into it.” (Spiritual Ground for Education by Rudolf Steiner).

This is also why homework is not promoted in Waldorf education, to give ample time for a child to wholly integrate all of the art, story, plays, music, and movement they were engaged with from the inside out to settle down into their etheric mind (where memory is stored) during the remainder of waking consciousness into the sleep consciousness.

They will wake the next day full of reflections from the day before, having crystallized their impressions into thoughts. Children become sick, first mentally and then physically if this natural rhythm is not allowed for, given that the externalized impressions will override this capacity for thinking. The child’s head, instead, will be filled with images from video games or television. Once again, his own concentration and imagination will have been denied him. He’ll deem that life occurs, out there in T.V. land, not internally in his own world of self-actualized and fructified dreams. The application of a properly threaded Will (male gesture) and Wisdom (female gesture) will be hobbled.

The other problem is that if we’re told at allopathic schools that there is little room for the bubbling up of our internal creativity and that we have to succumb to standardized testing instead, we will begin to feel the light go out on our internal capacity for imagination and freedom of expression. A generalized malaise, and “why bother” attitude starts to show up. It might even lead to suicidal depression in our teens. I know because I serve teens brought to me for Heilkunst Treatment in this state more often than I’d like.

These external dumbing down forces start to spread into the rest of our lives. The why bother gesture begins to permeate everything to the point where a sufferer opts to live externally, watching others live, fulfilling lives through their externalized perpetual fantasies, while the watcher sits on the sidelines and simply watches or controls a gaming console. It becomes a lot less risky to live life on the sidelines physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually if we’ve repeatedly gotten the message that what we’d like to contribute is not wholly valued.

I serve so many of these checked out children and adults, that it is astounding. It is an Aurum (homeopathic rx for the loss of one’s inner gold) state, in which they’ve forgotten their inner value. They’re not connected to their true heart’s desire (heart disease) and their lives feel profoundly un-lived (cancer). In many cases, they don’t even know what they’d like to be anymore, either in the present, or later on when they grow up, as they’ve not even thought to ask themselves this question anymore. They’re utterly resigned. T.V. perpetuates dissociation, escapism, a disengaged onlooker society. The video game and pornography industry is also counting on this physical, mental and emotional inertia of the watcher on the living room couch with his bag of cookies or chips.

Onlookers over time are numb, shut-down and not very resourceful. Perfect if the government, in cahoots with Big Pharma, want to be passing bills for mandatory vaccinations through congress without folks knowing or caring. No, you won’t see that on CNN or allopathic news. That content is only peppered liberally through my personal Twitter stream where my ire is completely provoked to write books and articles about this insidious phenomenon. #vaxxed #cdcwhistleblower  Sometimes I actually wonder if there is still anybody out there?!

In Heilkunst Medicine, we also discuss at length a Chthonic, fear-induced state entitled Bufo. In nature, Bufo Rana is a big, meaty, overgrown toad with big slobbery lips and a quick tongue. He sits  for hours, unmoving, staring at a fixed point in his environment, barely blinking waiting for a juicy fly to pass by, otherwise he is sedentary, conserving his cold reptilian energy, seemingly unaffected by his ambient. In the human disease state, you’ll observe these characteristics in addition to symptoms of lasciviousness, lewdness, lustfulness, and wantonness. They’re almost drooling as they can’t wait to get home to watch pornography and attempt self-gratification in the basest of ways in private. I’ve served many modern men, and women too, in chronic Bufo states.

I’ve also known two men in my life who were chronic T.V. watchers. One of them watched the news on a popular station from sun-up to sundown. He also developed a tumor the size of a grapefruit in his gut, breaking one of his ribs. He never knew it was there until Doctors noticed it while examining him for a hernia.

A second individual I know retired some years ago and watches a variety of sitcoms, news and documentaries day in and day out. He leaves his house on a very limited basis, living mostly in fear of the outside world. He takes a variety of drugs for depression and anxiety. His pallor is ashen. I can’t help but wonder if his chronic television watching is contributing to his problems.

I also serve individuals who have chronic problems with memory. They have difficulty recalling where they put their keys, issues with dates, times, people’s names, etc. Again, it would be interesting to wean them from television, in addition to Heilkunst Treatment, and see if their etheric memory increases.


“Television” by Chris Brown

As you can see, television is a toxic, mind-numbing and disease inducing machine. It infects you and your family with its agenda, which represents less than 1% of reality. If you travel the real world, as I do, you’ll realize that 99% of the population is so loving, helpful and compassionate, perhaps you too will forget the violence and fear proffered by television.

I’ve not had television in my midst for over twenty years for the precise reasons that I’ve illustrated above. Living without it means that I get to live my own creative, thought-provoking and imaginative life, full of juicy impressions and healthy desires. I’m a photographer, an artist, a romantic scientist and a philosopher. I get to write books, serve patients and compose blog articles based on my own generative impressions, fully taking the time to ruminate upon ideas as they crystallize into articles. I love my over-the-moon fulfilling life and I feel that T.V. would only detract from desire to know myself and others in a deep and meaningful way.

What Did Steiner Say about Television?

In Pursuit Of Sweetness; How To Diagnose The True Meaning Of Diabetes


If you are getting to know us here at Arcanum Wholistic Clinic, you’re probably beginning to recognize that Heilkunst Medicine looks at all disease matrices phenomenologically. What that means is that while allopathic science attempts to shut the symptoms down through palliation or suppression, we’re all about discerning the root cause and the reason you contracted with the disease state in the first place. Perhaps think of us as forensic health scientists. We feel that disease is not a cursory blip on your landscape, but that the roots should be thoroughly scoped out, not just at the biological level, but also at the level of your emotional resonance with this disease entity, if you will. The bottom line is why, spiritually, did you sign the contract with a disease like diabetes in the first place?

First of all, diabetes can be defined as, “not being able to extract the sweetness from life.”  Whether you’re born with this challenge or you develop the condition later in life as Type II, the phenomenon is the same. The diabetic sufferer will feel that they don’t have enough physical, emotional, or spiritual resources to actualize their goals and their dreams, so they try to garner it from other external sources like sugar. Alternatively, when in health, the individual will be able to effectively marshal their resources internally, activating their true desire function, living a life  of perpetual enthusiasm, excitement, and pleasure. Fully engineered health is an inside-out job, not an outside-in job, so if the pancreas can’t metabolize your sugars, it is due to the fact that you can’t easily metabolize a life fulfilled with generous doses of milk and honey.

Individuals suffering the “diabetic” state of mind will often display a persona that is “sickly sweet.”  Even if they harbour hostility, they generally won’t risk revealing their true feelings for fear of creating conflict. They will attempt to perpetuate that everything is just fine even when their environment is truly intolerable.  Also, they’re usually well-behaved children, rarely rocking the family boat, and hardly ever rebelling as teenagers. You will notice that they’re the type to  just put up with the expectations at school, as well, struggling to assimilate all of the information shoved at them while trying to memorize all the cold data just to appear as a “good student.”  Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf Education and Spiritual Scientist, illustrates one aspect of the phenomenon around adult onset diabetes as,

“Imagine that you are stressing the memory capacity of the child excessively around the ninth or tenth year of life, that memory is used too much as a means in education. The consequences of this will show themselves only when the human being is in his thirties or forties or even later. Then the person will become either a sufferer of rheumatism or diabetes. Precisely when memory is used inappropriately around the ninth or tenth year of life, then this overwhelming of memory in childhood will show itself later in excessive deposits of metabolic products … On the other hand, when the child is required to use too little memory – when we are appealing too little to the child’s ability to remember – then we will call forth in later life a tendency for inflammatory processes of all sorts. To understand how the bodily conditions of one epoch of life are the consequences of the spiritual-soul conditions of another life-stage is one of the most important things that we must realize.” (Freely translated.)


This means that the way our state-based education system is structured around forced memorization, as opposed to allowing the individual to unfold their true desire program naturally (to know what they want to know when they want to know it out of inner enthusiasm and excitement), causes the expression of disease later on in life.  Another example of this that Steiner talks about in other lectures is that a child caused to awaken the intellect too early on in childhood, will be more likely to develop Alzheimer’s or dementia at the other end of their life.  Also, based on Harris Coulter’s research, the suppressive nature of vaccines will cause cancer and psychotic behaviours, exhibited as criminal activity later in life, alleviating the individual of their righteous discernment and natural compassion.  Literally, their ego (ontic or warmth organism, as per Steiner), sense of individuality, and autonomy is cancelled and suppressed, creating more cold, intellectualized, and disturbing behaviour where natural emotions are negated.


When we trump a child’s natural unfolding through self-learning, cancelling out their true desire program, more specifically around ages 9 and 10, we promote diabetes and joint issues like rheumatism and arthritis.  Again, rather than enabling them to engage with their own excitement and enthusiasm by helping them activate their individual desire program, through pushed curriculums, testing, and exams, you cause them to shut down their ability to derive the sweetness from their life.  The mineralization, usually showing up first in the extremities,  is a by-product of the phenomenon “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” or a form of “excarnation”; the body’s subconscious exit strategy as nature begins to take the reins back.  Consider arthritis in the hands for a moment.  If you love your life, giving and receiving out of a sense of love, grace, purpose, faith, and fulfillment, your hands will be warm, labile, motile, and wonderfully flexible.   The opposite occurs when we’re forced to remember things that don’t interest us, making us suffer feelings of entrapment or wondering where the pleasure is in all this useless memorization.  Sclerotic stiffening and rigamortus (even of the pancreas), if you will, is all a by-product of ignoring one’s true, individual, and ordained desire program.  Heilkunst Medicine is about clawing our healthy individuality all back from the negating forces that suppressed us so that we derive sweetness, love, joy, lability, and fulfillment.

We’re finding after 20 years of research that diabetes is also a by-product of the suppressive nature of vaccines, which alter the development of natural immunity (code term for sense of oneself).  Diabetes is a lack of self-actualization, a result linked to an autoimmune insult.

“Some of the best evidence suggesting diabetics may have an immune disorder include papers showing an increased incidence of classic autoimmune diseases like thyroiditis in Type I diabetics (Landin-Olsson, Karlsson, Dahlquistet al.1989a). That antithyroid antibodies are more common in females, but islet cell antibodies and diabetes are equally common in males and females, has raised questions on whether the disorders are causally related or are derived from common immunologic defects.”


At the early onset of diabetic symptoms, the pancreas will often become inflamed. As per Michael Lincoln, PhD., from his book, Messages From The Body, he describes the pancreatic inflammation as a difficulty in integration and expressing love. Fundamentally, the individual doesn’t believe that they deserve love, or they believe that, “Love is a poison apple.”  They will suffer a lot of guilt and feelings around an intrinsic lack of value. Their self-esteem will be broken due to feeling rejected by their family from an early age.


Lincoln goes on to elaborate with regards to diabetes as a, “Boulevard of broken dreams.”  You will see a deep longing for what might have been if not for all of the emotional shocks and trauma. They suffer a deep dislike for themselves, accompanied by a sorrow and a sense of “starving to death in the midst of plenty.”  Their despair will be one of desperation, demoralization, and depression. In order to restore health outright, in this regard, we need to also solve the state of mind in conjunction with the physical resolution. Otherwise, medicine will just keep falling short of its intended mark with patients and they’ll be left to manage solely with drugs.

Dr. Lincoln goes on to cite that the diabetes state itself, “is stuck on an ideal image of what life should be like, and they feel that their quality of life has been taken from them.”  This is the key!  So many of us in our 40s, 50s, and beyond were raised with shattered dreams as our parents and teachers unknowingly were not wholly versed in conscious actualization of their essential self.  Our broken mentors created instead a preponderance for forced learning, deprivation of our individuality, and squashing of our unique expression for creativity and wisdom.  Most of us felt secretly crushed by their demonizing of wealth due to post-war coupons, scrimping and saving against the debt-based economy.  Most of us never witnessed expressions of utter fulfillment, grace, ease, autonomy, and sovereignty.  How can they have mentored something that they were too suppressed to even know they had a right to create themselves?  They didn’t; so as a result we very often suffered a life devoid of sweetness, maximizing our harboured rage and physical and emotional suffering.

As a result, having been puppeted by disease, the diabetic sufferer will re-orchestrate “sweetness starvation” in their lives. Singh further cites that they have to rear their own selves, totally unaided, becoming “self-made,” martyred in the “share the misery” process. Due to their perpetual disappointment, they become embittered; the opposite of sweet! Diabetics are often cynical in their orientation as a result of the repeated emotional shocks and traumas on their life’s timeline; these are precisely what we systematically “mop up” with the use of homeopathic principles, during the course of Heilkunst treatment.

Due to the fact that actualizing our full essential selves was rarely mentored for us, we’re pinioned under poverty consciousness; idealizing that things should be different. Do you know how many sugar, coffee, alcohol, cannabis, chocolate, and doctor-induced drug addicts I serve?  These entirely unnatural, suppressive forces break the spirit, leaving the heavy imprint on the subconscious that we’re living in a “hostile world” with “fatalistic expectations of further complications and debilitations in our life,” as per Singh. At base, the diabetic actually does not feel that they deserve to have their basic needs met.  Sadly, most of us don’t when we truly study the phenomenon at hand.  By curing the underlying cause with the principles of Heilkunst and allowing for true joy and sweetness to seep into the newly emptied space through conscious creation, the reliance on refined sugars disappears. We can wholly over-turn a soured life completely devoid of sweetness, where control, manipulation, hyper-doing, super-seriousness, somberness, and worries about base survival are harboured .

As mentioned prior, Type I and II, from a phenomenological standpoint, are the same. The state of mind is the same, it just manifests itself at a different time; the spiritual contract signed pre-birth or sometime thereafter in the space-time continuum. The diabetes state of mind is one of feeling “love-starved” with a desperate longing to belong, however, they feel intensely emotionally insulated. This will often reveal itself further with thyroid complications (not able to express anger verbally) and also cancer (the unlived life, martyrdom, and rescuing others to the exclusion of the self). Tumors are just trapped energy walled off under the beliefs and armoring remaining improperly exhumed and undischarged.

Incidentally, you don’t need an allopathic doctor to pronounce you in a lordly fashion as a “diabetic.”  If you were a fly on the wall in my clinic office, you’d hear 95% of my patients cite that they have some form of addiction to chocolate and/or sugar.  Very typically, after serving everyone else in her world over the course of the day at her job, resourcefully providing her family with that requisite healthy evening meal and then cleaning up the kitchen and helping the kids with their homework, while the washing machine launches into yet another spin cycle, she eventually sits down, after a 14 hour day of abject servitude, with her sweet drug of choice.  Sugar suppresses anger.  It is no accident that anger turned inside on oneself is the anatomy of the tumor.  Diabetes is actually predominantly anchored to the Cancer Miasm and in Dr. Roger Morrison’s,  Desktop Guide to Keynotes And Confirmatory Symptoms, he cites that individuals suffering cancer crave chocolate.  The dots actually line up; the aetiology of a true diagnosis revealed.

Over time, this state of harboured rage will reveal itself as armored, self-protection as the urban hermit or the cat lady, who felt constantly blamed by those who birthed them that, “If it weren’t for them …”, ends up believing that they don’t deserve an intimate relationship first with themselves, or with others. They’ll eventually withdraw from society and others, shutting down any social involvement in any real or meaningful way, ensuring that their vulnerability is protected, feeding it with love-substitutes such as carbohydrates, sugars, bread, and pasta; their body, over time, becoming insulin-resistant.  Individuals living in families will even describe feeling “walled off,” lonely, and isolated. This is the level of root causation that we treat using Heilkunst principles of regimen, medicine, and spiritual cognitive therapies.  What do you want your sweet life to feel like?
