Introduction To Nurture Their Nature MY ELBERT: EVERYONE LEARNS BETTER EMBRACING REVOLUTIONARY TEACHING IS The first Specialized Online Coaching Curriculum. I’ve spent the last 25 years perfecting an alternative, holistic approach to helping those with learning differences, and neurodiversity including, but not limited to, Dyslexia and Neurodevelopmental differences.
The purpose of the envisioned project, My Elbert, is to provide participants with a booklet to explore epigenetic milestones that led to a diverse society, resilience, and how various experiences influence beliefs, perspective-taking along with self-efficacy, including but not limited to mindfulness and intention setting tools in K-12 advocacy for the neurodiverse teaching and learning programs.

After twenty-five years of being in education, I provide tutoring, consulting, and coaching, for children and adults, on neurodiversity including dyslexia and other neurodevelopmental differences. Over the last 15 years, I’ve observed an increasing amount of Neurodevelopmental and Historical/Generational Trauma including affective, behavioral, sensorial, cognitive, physical, mental, and spiritual difficulties and differences . As well, an increased number of people being medicated, misdiagnosed, or going undiagnosed; Note, between 1998 and 2018, the number of people diagnosed with autism has jumped by 787%. The rate of increase was greater for females, with the greatest rise in adults being diagnosed with ASD. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/austim-rate-increase-19368/]. Therefore, I have developed a neuropedagogy studying the progeny of intergenerational emotions that includes my observations and evaluations that looks at the “whole person” using empirical science, my neurodivergent thinking, and (w)holistic wisdom.
Where learning is concerned, the “whole person” is important because people are different and so many learn and think differently. My Neuropedagogy allows Neuroscience, Psychology, and Psychopathology including Positive Psychology such as Motivational Interviewing including Self-Perception Theory, Biopsychosocial Psychology such as (W)holism approaches, Evangelical Theology such as Neuthetic Counselling, and Education including Constructivist Theory and Montessori Philosophy to come into an authentic practice. It really looks at how we all process information differently in space and interconnected time; briefly, we are all wired with dissimilarity for which each neural pathway is connected differently to process the same information that we all can receive. My current practice is a holistic approach to discovery of resilience, inner-being, spiritual-growth, and aims to learn how to stimulate new zones of the brain, and increase self-directed neuroplasticity, and atonement to create connections (neuropathways) for learning to be successful and enjoyable. Furthermore, it is targeted at naturally stimulating the brains of all types of learners, not only those with students who have learning disabilities.
The Problem: We are seeing children/adults digress with gulf-sized disconnect and low self-esteem. Each child/adult is multidimensional and ALL our systems and senses need to function equalized, activated, and balanced for learning to take place. The triune brain which is the neomammalian complex (RAS- aka neocortex), midbrain (pons- aka limbic system), and forebrain (thymus aka reptilian) is working on a downward function, which makes learning and thinking chaotic in the mind. People are using their mental and emotional bodies to learn, not their etherical body (etheric).
The Solution: When using the etherical body, ALL our faculties, systems, and senses will function equalized, activated, and balanced. The triune brain needs to be working in an upward function (no longer perform in a protective function). With a functional upward system, the child [or adult] can trust themselves and their gifts and learning uniquenesses through spiritual mindset with self-directed neuroplasticity through ABC’s and atonement meaning God awareness (eventually unity) through PYAM Daily. They’re offered the freedom arising from conditions within the brain, senses, or sense organs and not directly caused not by external stimuli but the knowing with-in themselves which is patience for understanding and trusting in their subjective, divergent mind.
A practical definition of the mind— cellular memory is a theory that the body’s cells retain memories independently from the brain. Note: Categorically distilled from a dozen scientific fields; there is a triangle system of well-being—includes how to promote a healthy memory includes: PONS, RAS, & THYMUS (including Thalamus and Gut) which promotes a healthy flow between your body, brain, and relationships of the mind and heart such as in a specific way of Autonomy & Attunement= Adaptability!

Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion, Nov 09, 2021 Having a good conscience . . . –1 Peter 3:16 God has put within each one of us something that cries aloud against us, whenever we do that which we know to be wrong.
Conscience is the detective that watches the direction of our steps and decries every conscious transgression. Conscience is the built-in power of our minds to pass moral judgments on ourselves, approving or disapproving our feelings, actions, thoughts, and plans, and telling us, if what we have done is assessed as wrong, that we deserve to suffer for it. Conscience has in it two elements: an awareness of certain things as being right or wrong, and an ability to apply laws and rules to specific situations. Conscience insists on judging us, and insist on judging us by the highest standard we know. So we sometimes call it God’s voice in the soul, and in a sense it is. [Retrieved from https://sway.office.com/6BhnVi2YHh09O1v8]. What is Conscience/Righteousness- Intellectual-Moral aka “The Simple” (Strong IQ- Rewarded Pure Heart)?
The moral feeling, by which we mean a sense of the difference between right and wrong, would seem to be a part of the native furnishing of the mind. Conscience is a vigilant eye before which each imagination, thought, and act, is held up for either censure or approval. I believe there is no greater argument for the existence of God in the world today than conscience. There is no greater proof of the existence of a moral law and Lawgiver in the universe than this little light of the soul. It is God’s voice to the inner man. Conscience is our wisest counselor and teacher, our most faithful and most patient friend. [Retrieved from https://www.internationalstandardbible.com/R/righteousness.html]. What is Self-Realization/Blamelessness- Imaginative-Moral aka “The Simple” (Strong EQ- Rewarded Clean Mind)?
How can we achieve this state of Being for ourselves? Self Realization is a term that is becoming increasingly more widely used. In many ways it is an obscure term, and its meaning is not immediately apparent. For many it is a term that means the same as ‘Enlightenment’ – a word which is similarly something difficult to determine. However, the term ‘Self Realization’ is more useful as it actually refers to a very specific stage in the journey of awakening that Ramana Maharshi and others described.

“The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you; The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually). And they shall put My name upon the Israelites, and I will bless them.” Numbers 6:24-27 AMPC I do believe the disconnect for students, families, and schools. It’s in the domain of Spiritual Development… The disconnect happens in these domains: (intellectual)- what is right, (moral)-what is good, and (imaginative)-what is best; to do well (uprightly): behavior and emotion with the discernment of His Divine Will for us in justice, design, plan, and purpose for yourself and meekness towards others which brings gladness, humility, uprightness, righteousness, wisdom and ALL “EXCELLENT THINGS.”

Favorite Quotes of Mine: “The challenge of collaborating and cooperatively adapting at scale creates many difficulties and we may have unwittingly put in place a number of cultural systems and practices, particularly in education, which are undermining our ability to adapt.” – Dr. Helen Taylor Retrieved from “The Evolution of Complementary Cognition: Humans cooperatively adapt and evolve through a system of collective cognitive search”, Helen Taylor, Brice Fernandes & Sarah Wright doi:10.1017/S0959774321000329.
Everything happens for a reason. Wait on God and trust in Him. He wants the best for us. He wants to take us from glory to glory, and from victory to victory.” Germany Kent “For this system of collective cognition to enable us to adapt at scale, we need to be aware of it so that we can design and build systems from education to the economy that nurture different ways of thinking as well as effective communication and collaboration.” [Retrieved from https://complementarycognition.co.uk/#Theory%5D.
“It starts with this foundational principle: no matter how baffling our self-defeating behaviors may seem to us, everything we do has some logic to it. We just have to know where to look for that logic.

I help those who are seemingly weak or weary due to – Why is Motivational Interviewing [MI] effective and Neuthetic Counseling for a neurodifference I have observed so many becoming weary with a neurodiversity, by living in strife of regret or dread…mask and push, mask and push, mask and push then BURNOUT Where failures have turned to vanity to overcome them…. Even I observed those in despair such as hatred, deceit, grief, and guilt… They question “why” the learning, thinking, and other differences “had to happen” to them… So many of us, who have a neurodiversity, need to recognize anger and/or need to overcome shame due to suppressive anger…
The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out. Proverbs 20:5
Who are considered the Neurodiverse? What is neurodiversity? Individual differences in brain functioning regarded as normal variations within the human population because of genes, environmental, and intersecting factors. Intersecting identities is the concept that an individual’s identity consists of multiple, intersecting factors, including but not limited to gender identity, gender expression, race, ethnicity, class (past and present), religious beliefs, sexual identity and sexual expression.

THE AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE (ABR) & MEASURES OF PH IN THE BLOOD: EVALUATES RISK FACTORS FOR HEARING LOSS. This (1980) found fourteen of 100 unselected patients in an Intensive care nursery were found by the auditory brainstem evoked response (ABR) method to suffer significant hearing loss; of these 8 were ultimately discharged home. Analysis of the 100 clinical records identified 9 risk factors of which most, like low Apgar scores, are already known (Table I). However, neonatal asphyxia appeared to be associated with hearing loss only when repeated episodes of acidosis accompanied it (Table III). We conclude that the ABR readily identifies the hard-of-hearing premature and estimates the type and amount of his peripheral hearing loss, and that physiological events associated with prolonged perfusion of the cochlea with blood low in pH may be the most common cause of hearing disorder in this group.

What makes a PH level to be considered healthy? Think about other diversities? See THYMUS (high heart)-ARAS (thymus, pons, RAS/HPA & ACC): adrenal glands, also known as suprarenal glands, are small, triangular-shaped glands located on top of both kidneys. A normal blood pH level is 7.35 to 7.45 on a scale of 0 to 14, where 0 is the most acidic and 14 is the most basic. This value can vary slightly in either direction. If the lungs or kidneys are malfunctioning, your blood’s pH level can become imbalanced. Intracellular pH (pHi) regulation in the brain is important in both physiological and physiopathological conditions because changes in pHi generally result in altered neuronal excitability.

Note: With Neurodevelopmental Disorders (NDDs), comes neurodivergency, you use inductive reasoning to solve problems, which is a cause-and-effect type of thinking, where someone begins identifying patterns by empirical observations of feelings and the future applications Neuodivergency means having an induction logic versus deduction like a vast majority of people. With this being said, disparagement can happen and cause trauma. Disparagement can be soul crushing!
Specific Leaning Disability (SLD) “An estimated 80 percent of those with learning disorders have reading disorder in particular (commonly referred to as dyslexia). One-third of people with learning disabilities are estimated to also have attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).” [Retrieved from https://www.psychiatry.org/patients-families/specific-learning-disorder.] Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) ” Exogenous prenatal risks are evident (e.g. valproate and toxic chemicals) or possible (e.g. selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), and processes endogenous to the materno-foeto-placental unit (e.g. maternal diabetes, enhanced steroidogenic activities and maternal immune activation) likely heighten offspring vulnerability to ASC.” [Retrieved from https://acamh.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/jcpp.12501].
Air pollution is a cocktail of many toxic components, but particulate matter (PM, especially ambient fine particles such as PM2.5 and PM0.1), are the most concerning in terms of causing detrimental health effects. Ultrafine particles, in particular, are able to escape the body’s protective systems, including sentinel immune cells and biological barriers. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/pollution-lung-brain-20869/].
Other NDD’s Most people are unaware of the connection between dyslexia and ADD or ADHD. It has been estimated that between 30 – 60% of kids with dyslexia also have either ADD or ADHD. “Challenges with processing emotions start in the brain itself. Sometimes the working memory impairments of ADHD allow a momentary emotion to become too strong, flooding the brain with one intense emotion.” Thomas Brown, Ph.D.
Brain imaging studies demonstrate that chemicals that activate reward-recognizing circuits in the brain tend to bind on significantly fewer receptor sites in people with ADHD than do those in a comparison group. People with ADHD are less able to anticipate pleasure or register satisfaction with tasks for which the payoff is delayed. Few doctors factor in emotional challenges when making an ADHD diagnosis. In fact, current diagnostic criteria for ADHD include no mention of “problems with emotions.” At other times, working memory impairments leave the person with insufficient sensitivity to the importance of a particular emotion because he or she hasn’t kept other relevant information in mind. Challenges with emotions start in the brain itself. Sometimes the working memory impairments of ADHD allow a momentary emotion to become too strong, flooding the brain with one intense emotion [emotional intensity or insensitivity].
At other times, the person with ADHD seems insensitive or unaware of the emotions of others. Brain connectivity networks carrying information related to emotion seem to be somewhat more limited in individuals with ADHD.
Gifted & Talented Plus 2e The term “twice-exceptional,” also referred to as “2e,” is used to describe gifted children who, have the characteristics of gifted students with the potential for high achievement and give evidence of one or more disabilities as defined by federal or state eligibility criteria. These disabilities may include specific learning disabilities (SpLD), speech and language disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, physical disabilities, autism spectrum, or other impairments such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) [Retrieved from https://www.nagc.org/resources-publications/resources-parents/twiceexceptional-students.]
Emotional Intensity (see pons above and insensitive below)- It is characterized by heightened and intense feelings, a constant stream of both positive and negative feelings – pain, distress, despair, fear, excitement, love, sadness or happiness – sometimes a mixture of many at the same time; For my program, it’s mainly: anger, shame, happiness (joy), grief, courage (might), and harmony! Emotionally overexcitable (OE) is often the first to be noticed by parents. It is reflected in heightened, intense feelings, extremes of complex emotions, identification with others’ feelings, and strong affective expression (Piechowski, 1991).
Other manifestations include physical responses like stomachaches and blushing or concern with death and depression (Piechowski, 1979). Emotionally overexcitable people have a remarkable capacity for deep relationships; they show strong emotional attachments to people, places, and things (Dabrowski & Piechowski, 1977). They have compassion, empathy, and sensitivity in relationships. Those with strong Emotional OE are acutely aware of their own feelings, of how they are growing and changing, and often carry on inner dialogs and practice self-judgment (Piechowski, 1979, 1991). Children high in Emotional OE‚ are often accused of “overreacting.” Their compassion and concern for others, their focus on relationships, and the intensity of their feelings may interfere with everyday tasks like homework or doing the dishes.

They also have deep and holistic, list-form type thinking including: problem-solving and building/constructing abilities, competitive drive, computer skills, and gaming strategies. They seek our own endeavors of creative, imaginative, visual, artistic, and visionary skills while taking on inventing and innovating pursuits. I can also tell you that they may excel at thinking of “outside the box” solutions, seeing a problem from many sides, and patterns/spatial relationships along with the ability to think in 3 dimensions-using their strong evaluation skills and imagination (capable of observing patterns of: color, shape, size, dimension, rhythm, meter, tone, and chant). They have an innate ability for caring for people, animals and nature [Note: sometimes due to circumstances they go against their own nature in this respect].

Two Types Of Literacy Intervention Learners, I Observed That Go Most Unrecognized In Their Gifts: • The Students with the “Engineering Mind”: a student who spends hours taking things apart and putting them back together, creating things, assembling and un-assembling ex. legos, blocks. They are setting things apart to see how they can fix them, problem-solution thinkers (descibed above). They are are natural engineers. It is inherent in their curious nature. As they grow, almost instinctively they show great interest in shapes (using evaluation kills descibed above) and numbers. They tend to be shy and seems to have a different cognitive processing speed: https://www.edsurge.com/news/2022-04-05-students-have-different-thinking-speeds-inclusiveteaching-means-realizing-that. • The Students with the “Technical Mind”: is what I describe as a “technical thinker” (similar to the “engineering minded” with divergent abilities). They can or tend to understand/provide complex information to readers/listeners in a way that they can understand and apply, even if they don’t have prior knowledge of the topic; Yet, they are truly interest-based learners at the same time. “Technical thinkers” can explain, especially verbally with a rather large lexicon knowledge, how a particular subject works or how and what’s needed to complete a task or project including: list-form, divergent, systematic thinking and somewhat linear-so they can express the topic that can be structured in the following step-by-step instructions.
Note: sometimes needed to be given the “right tools for analysis” in order to express/communicate to others. This is my job! Note: I have noticed both of these types are “doers” and need autonomy (avoid disparagement); They need to be independently doing something to learn and apply their divergent reasoning (opposite of typical scientific method observing (first), then hypothesis.theory and test by moving, touching, following interest, writing something technical, application of skills, etc..). They, as well, can have a learning difference (neurodiversity). They are also “strong willed” and know technically what they have “in mind” to work on, so please let them be autonomous and independent in their work.
They may have a strong purpose in their special interest that could change problems to the world!! As well, a possibly sensory processing sensitivity (SPS, as measured by the highly sensitive self-test), which corresponds most closely in theory to what we refer to as “hypersensitivity” or “high sensitivity”–check out sensitivity as a personality trait bearing the following characteristics • :greater depth of information processing (see learning types below) • heightened emotional reactivity and empathy (emotional intensity) • increased awareness of subtle changes in one’s environment (divergent thinking/reasoning) • greater propensity for overstimulation (see overexcitabilies) • Read here …See My work HERE. Lastly, I observe these gifts, learning types mostly in my Gifted and Talented and/or Twice Exceptional with overexcitabilies!! Does this describe your child? Ask me about “The Steve Jobs” type (strong see overexcitabilies and early dev. in logicalmathemtaical thinking); “The Tom Cruise” type (strong see overexcitabilies and early dev. in emotions/drama); “The Richard Branson” type (strong see overexcitabilies and early dev. in entrepreneurship/creativity); “Einstein” type (strong see all overexcitabilies and early dev. in science specially physics) along with more excentricities:
Speaking of emotional intensity, maybe you are seeing symptoms manifesting in your child or student already. Your, once, delightful child/student has suddenly increased complaints of: • Disorganization • Stomach Aches • Hives • Lack of Focus • Shortened Attention Spans • Destroying Their Pencils • Sleep or Digestive Problems Manifesting in: • Depression • Memory Problems • Cries Easily • Anger • Sadness • Shame • Problems With Authority…etc. Other: Depression Anxiety Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Tic Disorders Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) Learning/Language Disabilities (LDs) Executive Functioning Difficulties Fine & Gross Motor Difficulties.

While people commonly colloquialize this as impostor “syndrome,” “phenomenon” or “experience” are better terms because impostor phenomenon isn’t a clinical diagnosis, said Pauline Rose Clance, PhD, ABPP, an Atlanta-based clinical psychologist and professor emerita at Georgia State University, who coined the term “impostor phenomenon” with her colleague Suzanne Imes, PhD (Psychotherapy: Theory, Research & Practice, Vol. 15, No. 3, 1978).
“It’s a phenomenon experienced by many, and remembering that can help normalize it,” she said. It’s especially prominent among people with underrepresented identities. For example, BIPOC people who work or study in predominantly White environments wrestle with impostor feelings at higher rates, either contending with feelings that they don’t belong or that they’re products of affirmative action, said Kevin Cokley, PhD, a professor of educational psychology at the University of Texas at Austin who has studied impostor phenomenon since 2013.

PTSD- Many advances in science have been made in the last decade to better explain the pathogenesis of PTSD. Advances in the brain imaging method have allowed us to study changes in patients’ brains in a non-invasive way. Recent studies have observed the activity or morphology changes of several brain regions in patients with PTSD, including the prefrontal lobe, amygdala, hippocampus. However, it is still unclear how these changes in brain regions are linked to PTSD. Further research needs to be conducted to understand the function of brain regions during the development of PTSD. Also, people can develop PTSD, depression, or both as a result of a major traumatic event. The hypothalamic– pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA axis) may play an important role in such a difference (see HPA and anger above).

Pathological Demand Avoidance of PDA is becoming more widely recognized as a distinct profile of autism. British psychologist Elizabeth Newson came up with this term which describes an anxiety-driven need to be in control and avoid other people’s demands and expectations. Demand avoidance in the PDA profile looks different from what others on the autism spectrum experience because of its extreme nature and obsessive quality. Research done at the University of Newcastle in November 2016 found that Intolerance of Uncertainty (IU) was also associated with PDA, in fact even stronger than anxiety.

Deficient emotional self-regulation (DESR) is a relatively new term used to describe the problem of impulsive emotion coupled with emotional self-regulation difficulties — issues long associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD).
DESR may be new to the ADHD lexicon, however I argue that it is a core and commonly overlooked component of the disorder — and one that can help predict a patient’s impairments, and even improve diagnostic and treatment practices.1 Dysthymia- People with untreated ADHD can suffer from dysthymia — a mild but long-term mood disorder or sadness. It is often brought on by living with the frustrations, failures, negative feedback, and stresses of life due to untreated or inadequately treated ADHD.

The gut microbiota is associated with neuropsychiatric disorder such as schizophrenia, autistic disorders, anxiety disorders, major depression and bipolar disorder.
Major depressive disorder is a stress-related mood disorder associated with a disrupted HPA axis, and evidence suggests that the gut microbiota play a key role in modulating depression. Bipolar disorder is a severe psychiatric disorder with dysfunctions of neuroimmune system which also suggest the braingut-microbiota axis is an important physiological mechanism. (See Dysautonomia, HPA and anger above).
Communication from gut to brain occurs through tryptophan, an essential building block of serotonin. Serotonin is key in regulating mood, eating, and sleep patterns. There is limited storage capacity for tryptophan in the brain, and a constant supply is required from the gut. It was once believed that tryptophan came strictly from diet alone, but what research has shown is that gut microbiota, particularly Bifidobacterium, produces tryptophan and increases its levels in the bloodstream. This study below has since been replicated, adding to global evidence linking the microbiome-gut-brain axis to stress and mental health disorders. Low diversity in the gut microbiota is now considered a significant biomarker for major depressive disorder. Other mental health and neurodegenerative disorders with significant microbiome-gut-brain ties include: post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and autism. The microbiome-gut-brain axis also plays a critical role in irritable bowel syndrome, and in understanding the link between mental health disorders and physical illness, such as depression or anxiety co-occurring with inflammatory bowel disease.

My neuropedagogy also includes a theory called “prudential personalism”. The theory is called “personalism” because the goal or purpose is the flourishing of the human person; since the human person is clearly one thing or set of things and one set of needs rather than another, it provides an objective norm that rescues it from total subjectivism. The fact that personalism has a supernatural dimension is the reason why excellent spiritual care is essential, and why we are not obliged to use every means possible to preserve physical life. We are created to “know, love and serve God in this world, and to be happy with Him in the next.” Note: * The theory is “prudential” because, unlike a deontological system, it maximizes human freedom and creativity (wisely real), allowing diverse paths to the same goal or purpose, depending on circumstances. Because they focus on obedience and conformity of the will; unlike, deontological ethics which often results in an impoverished view of the human person, one in which the person lacks autonomy and self-determination and has but a limited ability to integrate grace in the form of perduring moral qualities, or virtues.

Why Motivational Interviewing? Motivational Interviewing incorporates the growing body of outcome research and is an “empathic, person-centred” counseling approach that prepares people for change by helping them resolve ambivalence, enhance intrinsic motivation, and build confidence to change.” (Kraybill and Morrison, 2007).
More applications of MI within and beyond the addictions field such as OARS which are the basic interaction techniques and skills that are used “early and often” in the motivational interviewing approach. (Adapted from handouts by David Rosengren and from Miller & Rollnick, Motivational Interviewing, 2nd Edition, 2002). Coverage of MI and the stages-of-change model; applications in medical, public health, and criminal justice contexts; and the use of MI with groups, couples, and adolescents. Proven to work in those with anger. One very large study of treatment for alcohol use disorders found that response to motivational enhancement therapy was not altered by sociopathy, severity of alcohol involvement, concomitant psychological problems, or cognitive impairment. In this same study, angry people fared particularly well with a motivational interviewing– based approach, whereas those less angry at the beginning of treatment did somewhat better in cognitive-behavioral or twelve-step counseling. (W. Miller & S. Rollick, 2002, p. 47).
MI will help them identify feelings of low self-esteem, guilt, shame, and self-judgment. Humiliation, shame, guilt, and angst are not the primary engines of change. Ironically, such experiences can even immobilize the person, rendering change more remote. Instead, constructive behavior change seems to arise when the person connects it with something of intrinsic value, something important, something cherished. Intrinsic motivation for change arises in an accepting, empowering atmosphere that makes it safe for the person to explore the possibly painful present in relation to what is wanted and valued. (W. Miller & S. Rollick, 2002, p. 33).
Why Neuthetic Counseling? The three ideas found in the word nouthesia are confrontation, concern, and change. To put it simply, nouthetic counseling consists of lovingly confronting people out of deep concern in order to help them make those changes that God require. The nouthetic counselor believes that all that is needed to help another person love God and his neighbor as he should, as the verse above indicates, may be found in the Bible. By concern we mean that counseling is always done for the benefit of the counselee. His welfare is always in view in Biblical counseling. The apostle Paul put it this way: “I am not writing these things to shame you, but to counsel you as my dear children.” (1 Corinthians 4:14). Plainly, the familial nature of the word noutheteo appears in this verse.
There is always a warm, family note to biblical counseling which is done among the saints of God who seek to help one another become more like Christ. Christians consider their counseling to be a part of the sanctification process whereby one Christian helps another get through some difficulty that is hindering him from moving forward in his spiritual growth.

The human genome consists of about 23 000 genes, whereas the microbiome encodes over three million genes producing thousands of metabolites, which replace many of the functions of the host,13 consequently influencing the host’s fitness, phenotype, and health.2 The human body is composed of a complex biological system; with over 90% of microbiota cells and 10 million microbiota genes (1), it possesses over 100 trillion bacteria, 10 times the number of human body cells, 150 times the number of human genes, 1,000 species and over 7,000 strains (2).

Microbial exposures are crucial environmental factors that impact on the immune system and microbiota. The term ‘microbial exposure’ is used generally to refer to exogenous environmental microbial interaction, while ‘exposome’ accounts for both the environmental exposures and the impact of lifestyle-associated microbial impacts, such as diet influences on endogenous microbial metabolism. In this review, we focus on how environment and lifestyle-associated microbial exposures shape the human immune system and microbiome, and how the resulting changes can shape human health, especially during critical developmental windows, that is prenatal, postnatal and adult. We conclude this review by proposing approaches to characterize the microbial exposome so as to accelerate the development of a precision microbial therapeutics for both practical and clinical intervention.

The Reticular Activating System (RAS)- Ras/ HPA & ACC/Gut – to know, perceive, recognize, have, aware, cognizant, do laugh, reverence, ask, repent, reconciliation which is a network of neurons (hyper-, hypo-, or, varied) located in the brain stem that project anteriorly to the hypothalmus to mediate behavior such as sleep, memory, and learning; as well as, both posteriorly to the and directly to the cortex for activation of awake, desynchronized cortical EEG patterns. The reticular formation (part of pons-see below) is a set of interconnected nuclei that are located throughout the brain stem. It is not anatomically well-defined, because it includes neurons located in different parts of the brain. The neurons of the reticular formation make up a complex set of networks in the core of the brain stem that extend from the upper part of the midbrain to the lower part of the medulla oblongata. The reticular formation includes ascending pathways to the cortex in the ascending reticular activating system and descending pathways to the spinal cord via the reticulospinal tracts.  It is holistically and spiritually known from being a center “where we can create our own reality” whether positive, negative, or neutral.

Dopamine (DA) neurons are a major component of the brain reward system. By encoding motivational value and salience, they tighly regulate motivation, emotional states and social interactions. Dopamine in the cerebellum helps regulate social behaviors via its action on D2 receptors. Changes in D2 levels in Purkinje cells alter sociability and preference for social novelty without affecting motor function.Although the regulation of these processes has been largely ascribed to neural circuits embedded in limbic regions, recent evidence indicate that the cerebellum, a region primarily involved in motor control, may also contribute to higher cognitive functions including social behaviors.

The level of dopamine in the brain may have an impact on emotional recognition in those with Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia, a new study reports. Emotion recognition among people with disorders such as Parkinson’s disease or schizophrenia may be affected by changes in the levels of dopamine in the brain, say researchers at the University of Birmingham. Dopamine is a chemical messenger – often known as the ‘happy hormone’ – that carries signals controlling mental and emotional responses in the brain. Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders are known for their links with low or disrupted dopamine levels that cause those affected to struggle with a number of social skills. This is the first time, however, that a positive connection has been made between dopamine and the ability to recognize emotions in others.

Furthermore, Neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel has pointed out that our brains are different because of the number of neurons packed into our skulls — it’s less about the size of our brains. The density of that packing, and the ensuing neuronal connections this density allows for, gives rise to our ability to acquire language from birth and use it till death. She assumes that the main function of the brain is to regulate our bodies as we move through life. That means that at every given moment, our brains assess our hunger, threat levels, etc. to figure out how much energy we need to get through the day. Thinking and cognitive perception are secondary products of how our brain responds predicatively to our environment.

The collaboration between Professor Adrian Liston (Babraham Institute) and Professor Matthew Holt (VIB and KU Leuven; i3S-University of Porto) has produced a targeted delivery system for boosting the numbers of specialized anti-inflammatory immune cells specifically within the brain to restrict brain inflammation and damage. The research team found that regulatory T cell numbers were low in the brain because of a limited supply of the crucial survival molecule interleukin 2, also known as IL2. Levels of IL2 are low in the brain compared to the rest of the body as it can’t pass the blood-brain barrier. Together the team devised a new therapeutic approach that allows more IL2 to be made by brain cells, thereby creating the conditions needed by regulatory T cells to survive.
A ‘gene delivery’ system based on an engineered adeno-associated viral vector (AAV) was used: this system can actually cross an intact blood brain barrier and deliver the DNA needed for the brain to produce more IL2 production. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/tbi-immune-system-20671/].

The thymus is a specialized primary lymphoid organ of the immune system. Within the thymus, thymus cell lymphocytes or T cells mature. T cells are critical to the adaptive immune system (also see RAS-GUT), where the body adapts specifically to foreign invaders. The thymus is located in the upper front part of the chest, in the anterior superior mediastinum, behind the sternum, and in front of the heart. It is made up of two lobes, each consisting of a central medulla and an outer cortex, surrounded by a capsule.  The thymus is instrumental in the production and maturation of T-lymphocytes or T cells, a specific type of white blood cell that protects the body from certain threats, including viruses and infections; It plays a role in immunity, autoimmunity, and aging (it’s basically our twin flame and fountain of youth).

The Thymus and High Heart & Gut Relation See Kidneys, See THYMUS (high heart), See Blood PH LEVELS: adrenal glands, also known as suprarenal glands, are small, triangular-shaped glands located on top of both kidneys here :
The Spirit body of the Monad is only consciously aware of the contents of the Soul when it is connected to the Soul. This is the same as when the physical body is disconnected from the Soul, the conscious mind does not remember her (cannot feel the soul). When our Heart is healed, there is a fire that is ignited inside the Heart that is accessed, and the fire in the Heart is also in the Kidneys. There is a triangle that connects the Heart into the Kidneys. The Kidneys are in the base of the triangle from left to right and the point of the triangle is in the Heart. When the Heart is healed, there is a twin flame ignition in our Heart and Kidneys, which shifts the Heart configuration. Twin flames equals structure of light within the Heart. So two flames ignite in the Heart. The Monad is the greater flame and the physical body is the lesser flame. When this dual flame is ignited, there is an ignition in the Heart and a fire coming into the Kidneys, which is about blood cleansing.

Very Important Study University at Buffalo scientists have discovered a convergent mechanism that may be responsible for how two top-ranked genetic risk factors for autism spectrum disorder/intellectual disability (ASD/ID) lead to these neurodevelopmental disorders. Mutations in the ASD/intellectual disability genes ADNP and POGZ result in abnormal activation and overexpression of immune response genes and genes for microglia. This results in abnormal brain synaptic function, characteristic of ASD and ID. The research involved studies on postmortem brain tissue from humans with ASD/ID, as well as studies on mice in which ADNP and POGZ were silenced through viral delivery of small interference RNA. These mice exhibited impaired cognitive task performance, such as spatial memory, object recognition memory and long-term memory. The mutated genes also activate the glial cells in the brain called microglia, which serve as support cells for neurons and have an immune function in the brain; they comprise 10-15% of all brain cells. “This is consistent with what we see in upregulated genes in the prefrontal cortex of humans with ASD/ID,” said Conrow-Graham. The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain responsible for executive function, such as cognition and emotional control.

Latest Research, Thymus Ancient Extracellular Signaling Molecule Matrix (ECM) The thymus includes ancient extracellular signaling molecules which are cues, such as growth factors, hormones, cytokines, extracellular matrix components and neurotransmitters, designed to transmit specific information to target cells. Increasing knowledge about the roles of extracellular matrix and its components in the nervous system development and disease is important from the therapeutic viewpoint.
Activation of signaling cascades underlying reorganization of the extracellular matrix and stimulation of neuronal plasticity is an achievable goal and a promising approach for treatment of acute and chronic neurodegenerative disorders. Recent data suggest that extracellular matrix proteases modifying cell recognition molecules on the neuronal surface, modulate synaptogenesis and plasticity during development and neurorepair.

Related To assess its role in AD, several research teams collaborated to first generate a mouse model with the PKCα M489V mutation and then assess its biochemistry and behavior over the next year and a half (corresponding to approximately 55 years in human aging). 1. After three months, the brains of the mutated mice had significantly altered levels of protein phosphorylation compared to the brains of wild type control mice, indicating that neuronal proteins were being misregulated. 2. By 4.5 months, the mice’s hippocampal neurons showed several cellular changes, including synaptic depression and reduced density of dendritic spines. 3. By 12 months, the mice showed impaired performance in behavioral tests of spatial learning and memory, clear evidence of cognitive decline. “We were surprised to find that just a slight increase in PKCα activity was enough to recreate the Alzheimer’s phenotype in a mouse,” said senior author Alexandra C. Newton, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Pharmacology at UC San Diego School of Medicine. “This is an amazing example of the importance of homeostasis in biology—even minor tweaks in kinase activity can result in pathology if the effects are allowed to accumulate over a lifetime.” To confirm whether similar enzymatic changes could be observed in human patients, the researchers also measured protein levels in the frontal cortex of human brains from deceased patients with AD and control individuals. Brains from AD patients showed a 20 percent increase in PKCα. Furthermore, phosphorylation of a known PKCα substrate was increased by approximately four-fold in these brains, further suggesting that PKCα activity was enhanced in the human AD brain. “The PKCα M489V mutation has been a great way to test the role of this enzyme in AD, but there are many other ways to have aberrant PKCα,” said Newton. “We’re finding that many mutations associated with AD are in genes that regulate PKCα, so a variety of gene variants may actually be converging onto this same important pathway.” The authors note that several pharmacological inhibitors of PKCα have already been developed for use in cancer and could be repurposed to treat AD. Future drug development might focus on ways to selectively inhibit PKCα at the synapse. “It’s increasingly clear that the amyloid plaques we see in AD are secondary to some other earlier process happening in the brain,” said Newton. “Our findings add to a growing body of evidence that PKCα may be an important part of that process, and is a promising target for treating or preventing Alzheimer’s disease.” Enhanced activity of Alzheimer disease-associated variant of protein kinase Cα drives cognitive decline in a mouse model: Compared to wild type control mice, hippocampal neurons in PKCa M489V mice showed fewer dendritic spines. Credit: UC San Diego Health Sciences. Exquisitely tuned activity of protein kinase C (PKC) isozymes is essential to maintaining cellular homeostasis. Whereas loss-of-function mutations are generally associated with cancer, gain-offunction variants in one isozyme, PKCα, are associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Here we show that the enhanced activity of one variant, PKCα M489V, is sufficient to rewire the brain phosphoproteome, drive synaptic degeneration, and impair cognition in a mouse model. This variant causes a modest 30% increase in catalytic activity without altering on/off activation dynamics or stability, underscoring that enhanced catalytic activity is sufficient to drive the biochemical, cellular, and ultimately cognitive effects observed. Analysis of hippocampal neurons from PKCα M489V mice reveals enhanced amyloid-β-induced synaptic depression and reduced spine density compared to wild-type mice. Behavioral studies reveal that this mutation alone is sufficient to impair cognition, and, when coupled to a mouse model of AD, further accelerates cognitive decline. The druggability of protein kinases positions PKCα as a promising therapeutic target in AD.
