DEMONS really are possessing people, warns psychiatrist, as pure evil sweeps over humanity
By wmw_admin on June 14, 2018
An Ivy League-educated psychiatrist is convinced that there’s a growing epidemic of demonic possession in the world today, and that most everyday people now recognize the dark reality of this scary situation.
Dr. Richard Gallagher, who boasts degrees from both Princeton University and Yale University, says that, despite conflicting opinions within mainstream medical science, demonic possession is both real and rampant.
With 25 years of experience under his belt as a private psychiatrist that compliments his two teaching positions at both New York Medical College and Columbia University, Dr. Gallagher believes he holds a unique vantage point in discerning between human and non-human, or satanic, behavior.
He’s also a highly sought-after professional of such things in cases where a determination is being made about the possible need for an exorcism. Having evaluated hundreds of cases of possible demonic possession towards this end, Dr. Gallagher is certain that the phenomenon is legitimate and pressing.
He insinuated to The Telegraph (United Kingdom) during a recent interview that demons know full well how to trick human beings because they possess far more advanced cognitive faculties. They routinely use these mental “smarts” to control the humans they possess, causing many of them to commit atrocities and other evils against other people and lifeforms.
“They’re very, very smart,” Dr. Gallagher is quoted as saying about the beings that occupy the demonic realm. “The intelligence level of a fallen angel, which is what I call them, is far superior to human beings.”
Roman Catholic Church seeing huge uptick in cases of demonic possession
Dr Gallagher’s sentiments align with other recent reports about rising demand for exorcisms in the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican actually held a training course earlier this year to teach exorcist priests how to handle this influx of demon-possessed humans.
Pope Francis has also commented on the phenomenon, explaining to his followers that Satan is, indeed, “a real being” who’s “roaming the earth to devour souls like a lion.” He wrote back in April that people shouldn’t assume that the devil is just some myth, representation, symbol, figure of speech, or idea. Doing this causes people to let down their guard, he claims, making all of us “more vulnerable.”
Francis also says that priests “should not hesitate” to send people who are suffering from “genuine spiritual disturbances” to exorcists. The Rite of Exorcism, he says, is a “delicate and necessary ministry” that should be undertaken with “great care and great prudence.”
According to data from the United States, the number of priests trained in performing exorcisms has increased from a mere 12 about a decade ago to 50 – a more than 300 percent increase. This dramatic jump shouldn’t be ignored, says Dr Gallagher, who while he’s not alone in his opinions is among a small few who are willing to talk about it professionally.
“There are many other psychiatrists and mental health care professionals who do what I do – perhaps not to the scope that I do – who seem hesitant to speak out,” Dr Gallagher says. “That’s what gives my work some singularity. That I have had so much experience and that I am willing to speak out. I feel an obligation to speak out. I think that I should.”
At the same time, Dr Gallagher warns that it’s important to determine without any doubt that a person actually has a real demon before recommending that he or she visit an exorcist.
“There is very strict criteria for determining the person’s problem,” he warns. “I am not just intuiting. I’m dealing with it from a very scientific point of view.”

New research into fasting is making a case that age-related decline in stem cell regeneration can be reversed by a 24-hour fast. When intestinal stem cells work well, the body can recover from gastrointestinal infections or other conditions that affect digestive function.
How Fasting Impacts Intestinal Stem Cells
A group of biologists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology discovered that fasting for a 24-hour period has an beneficial effect on intestinal stem cells. These cells maintain the lining of the intestine, renewing all its cells every five days.
Yet, as a person ages, the stem cells often start to lose their ability to regenerate. Consequently, they are no longer able to effective repair damage caused by injury or infection in the digestive tract.
Based on their discovery, MIT researchers believe that age-related loss of stem cell function can now be reversed. They found that a 24-hour fast significantly improves intestinal stem cells’ ability to regenerate.
Benefits to Digestive Function and Overall Health
The research shows that fasting could potentially help older people whose stem cells no longer function properly. The researchers claim that stopping food intake for 24 hours may help with recovery from gastrointestinal infections and other ailments.
Omer Yilmaz, an MIT assistant professor of biology, a member of the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, and senior author of the study, stated:
Fasting has many effects in the intestine, which include boosting regeneration as well as potential uses in any type of ailment that impinges on the intestine, such as infections or cancers.
Another author of this study, David Sabatini, an MIT professor of biology and member of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and the Koch Institute, stated:
This study provided evidence that fasting induces a metabolic switch in the intestinal stem cells, from utilizing carbohydrates to burning fat.
Interestingly, switching these cells to fatty acid oxidation enhanced their function significantly. Pharmacological targeting of this pathway may provide a therapeutic opportunity

Metabolic Effects of Fasting
During their initial testing, study researchers observed the same improvement in both young and aged mice. In both sets of fasting mice, intestinal cells switched to using fatty acids for energy instead of burning glucose. This metabolic change stimulated the stem cells to become more regenerative.
A popular diet that’s based on the principle that the body can benefit from burning fat instead of glucose is the ketogenic diet. Scientists have claimed that the ketogenic diet could be an alternative, non-toxic approach to cancer management.

In the future, the MIT scientists plan to further study exactly how this metabolic switch provokes stem cells to enhance their regenerative abilities. They have already discovered that they can affect the relevant metabolic pathways using a pharmacological intervention, thus producing the beneficial effects of fasting.
A healthy diet doesn’t mean you need to always deny yourself pleasurable foods. As well, starving yourself isn’t exactly the smart way to go about losing a few extra pounds. But this doesn’t mean that periodic fasting isn’t beneficial. In fact, quite the opposite may be true.
This newest research is yet another scientific study that claims fasting may have significant health benefits. A different research team out of the National Institute on Aging showed that fasting benefits the brain and boosts brain power. In that study, neurologists discovered that fasting could slow down abnormal degeneration of neurons, common in diseases such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons.
