The Epoch Times: How did you define grumbling?
Ms. Goyer: Grumbling is more than words. It includes eye-rolling, moaning, slamming cupboards, heavy sighing, and stomping away. It’s more than just muttering words … it goes deeper. Grumbling is truly rooted in discontent. We don’t get what we want when we want it, and so we complain about it.
Sadly, our grumbling not only hurts our relationships with each other, but it also puts up a barrier between us and God. When we grumble, we’re telling God, “What you’ve given us is not enough; you’re not enough.”
The Epoch Times: What were the biggest challenges of living grumble-free?
Ms. Goyer: Truthfully, the biggest challenge was looking at myself first and being an example. I wanted my kids not to grumble, and I had to be the example. Grumbling is easy. Harder is figuring out what’s really going on, trying to make changes, and attempting to communicate better.
While grumbling is not OK, I realized it is good communication to tell my husband my worries, the day’s challenges, and my needs. Overcoming my internal grumbles, transforming my thoughts and attitude, and talking about my needs has helped me to be honest and transparent. And my children are learning that, too.
Scientific study from researchers in India:
I think it’s worth considering. Toxicology tests were run on humans several years ago. Can’t go wrong by evicting parasites from the body.
I used to know an M.D. , head of the Oncology Department at a major university, who did cancer research and he was hot on the trail for rediscovering Laetrile, but when I told him his research was retracing the footsteps of the Drs. Krebs of Germany, he said the AMA would destroy him – and he promptly changed specialties to Geriatrics. Cancer is big business and big business doesn’t want a cure. See the article from CNBC, “Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: ‘Is curing patients a sustainable business model?'” – on Joe’s blog. So much corruption; so little time.

And as our very own Richard Winkel commented, circumcision may also factor into the equation. After all, violence begets violence.
As a circumcised woman, I have always related better to men than women, and I finally realized it was because I relate better to traumatized people than peaceful people. Circumcision certainly sends the message that you are not valued, not respected, not loved and cherished; that you are no more than a body, a slab of meat; that you must submit to authority because you are powerless, helpless and hopeless. These teachings can stick and need to be seen for what they are, then thoroughly “divorced”, released. They are false, destructive, subconscious mind-control teachings that surely have tormented some who have given up this beautiful gift of life prematurely.
Males in the USA commit suicide four times as often as females and I have often wondered if that might have something to do with circumcision. I tell the story of my childhood interest in suicide in my book The Rape of Innocence: Female Genital Mutilation and Circumcision in the USA. I have also met other circumcised women who have also reported serious attempts at suicide very early in life.
Now that the birthing process is more violent for both baby genders, even though females so far have been spared routine infant circumcision, undue birth trauma and daily stressors are extreme for both, so some girls may be as suicidal and reactive as boys. It’s just not easy being a people – especially in a world where someone sitting in a palatial estate somewhere apparently wants to rule the world… and is working hard to make that happen.
I’d prefer to live in a life-affirming world where no one is traumatized by birth practices and all people are blessed with a peaceful beginning; with wise parents, kind teachers and a safe society; in a world filled with respect for life, joy, love.
Those of us who were traumatized by a harsh birthing system and/or circumcision might benefit from tuning up the vagus nerve. Even just to gently massage in front of the ear or to sing and hum can be helpful. This planet, at this time in history, is not all that conducive to relaxation – and that is what the vagus nerve prefers – relaxation, peace of mind.
The vagus nerve is the most important nerve you probably didn’t know you had…
Vagus nerve dysfunction can result in a whole host of problems including obesity, bradycardia (abnormally slow heartbeat), difficulty swallowing, gastrointestinal diseases, fainting, mood disorders, B12 deficiency, chronic inflammation, impaired cough, and seizures.
Meanwhile, the vagus nerve stimulation has been shown to improve conditions such as:
- Anxiety disorder
- Heart disease
- Alcohol addiction
- Leaky gut
- Bad blood circulation
- Mood disorder
- CancerVagus nerve stimulation (VNS), is used to treat epilepsy, depression and arthritis.
