I have had solar flu almost daily for over a week, some times more than once a day. The KP Index which is usually in green switches to Yellow bars * this means that something is changing in the EMF around the Earth * and the goes RED and that means that the plasma from the event on the sun which is highly Electromagnetic is hitting the EMF shield around the planet. That’s likely very basic definition but that’s the way I understand it.. so we have been having a lot of solar winds recently and that will definitely cause G1 and G2 solar storms which have a definite impact on the KP Index. In the past each time we went into a Red KP Index, I would respond with an attack of solar flu* but in the last year or so, I have noticed that some times I would respond more often when the KP Index turned from Yellow to Red than when it was RED. I still respond to the RED Bars but the Yellow ones sometimes make me more ill than the RED and sometimes they make me sick and the RED ones do not. I am not sure why but I suspect it has to do more with EMF and Frequency than it does with G1 or G2 storms.
So with our star being almost devoid of any blemishes * sunspots * quite often these last months we are nearing Solar Minimum and then we go back towards Solar Maximum.. we had a solar polarity reversal according to NASA on FEB 3rd, 2014. This is what they say about the current solar minimum. From Wikipedia “Solar minimum is the period of least solar activity in the 11 year solar cycle of the sun. During this time, sunspot and solar flare activity diminishes, and often does … “This is the quietest sun we‘ve seen in almost a century,” agrees sunspot …The solar cycle or solar magnetic activity cycle is the nearly periodic 11-year change in the Sun’s activity (including changes in the levels of solar radiation and ejection of solar material) and appearance (changes in the number and size of sunspots/ flares, and other manifestations). They have been observed (by changes in the sun’s appearance and by changes seen on Earth, such as auroras for centuries. The changes on the sun cause effects in space, in the atmosphere, and on Earth’s surface. While it is the dominant variable in solar activity, aperiodic fluctuations also occur. So this leads me to my update:
I last posted at the onset of my solar flu attack at 2:35 AM PDT April 10… If this attack was like others within 8 hours something should show up on the solar reports, I follow Solar Ham.com so I checked and rechecked the reports for the next 8 hours. I did not see anything that would have caused this intensity of an attack. In case you have forgotten the definition of ” Solar Flu ” as I see it is as follows, taken from my blog on * Occasionally it can take up to 12-24 hours if the solar event is very large like a X class flare or a major earth directed CME or eruption.
Solar flu©: A term I coined many years ago to explain the reactions that some sensitive’s have to solar activity. The Instantaneous onset of pain in the area of the sternum reaching through to the back, making it hard to breathe and a feeling of a tight band wrapped around your chest. This mimics a gall bladder attack as well as a heart attack.. I have found that taking 2 Lecithin Capsules or 4 Lecithin Dry Powder Capsules and follow it with 2 antacids like Tums® or GasX®, that pain will generally subside within less than 30 minutes but you have to take the supplements at the very start of the attack. This time the pain did not go away, it continued and in fact got worse.
I had to repeat the Peppermint Tea and soda crackers once more before 6 AM and even then I had the tale, tale, symptoms all day and continue to experience them tonight.
This is not a common happening but reminds me of the time I was in major similar pain for 18 hours and ended up in the ER by ambulance and I am doing all I can to keep that from happening again. I know some persons have reported taking a scant teasp. of baking soda in a small glass of cool but not cold water will help raise the alkaline levels which is what I believe we are trying to do with the TUMS ®
So I was thinking about what I pick up with the Sun. Most of my subscribers know what I react to.. but for those who are new to this concept, its a Full or partial filament collapse, a full or partial halo, a major flare or a large CME.. I also at times, although not as often as several years ago, would notice that I would get discoloration on my ring finger, I had always assumed it was due to acidity levels * this is why the alkaline environment is good * Since I wear a gold wedding ring and that is the only finger that reacts I suspect that its due to my skin and the gold/acidity leaving a blackish/green ring around my finger. One thing I do remember about the discoloration, from experience. This would only happen with a Filament collapse or a full or partial halo event. That said I continued to watch what was happening. Did not see anything but I knew my attack was real.. so I had to be gone for several hours mid afternoon and when I returned home about 5 PM, I checked out the Solarham.com and this is what NOAA posted as an update. Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA, Space Weather Prediction Center. UPDATED 2017 April 10 1230 UTC. 24 hr. summary: Solar activity was at very low levels. B-class flare activity was observed from both regions 2648 (S03W42) and 2650 (N08E64), Cro/Beta)Region 2648 is currently a plage region. Region 2650 is relatively stable as it rotated further into view. An approximate 13 degree filament eruption was observed centered near N16E35 in H-alpha imagery beginning at 09/2025 UTC. This event was likely associated with a CME off the east limb observed in SOHO/LASCO C2Imagery beginning at 10/0212 UTC. The CME is not expected to have a geo-effective component. Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for C-class activity through the forecast period. ( 10-12 Apr) Not sure what time that is for my timezone but I suspect its within my 8 hour time line or very close.
** A plage is a bright region in the chromosphere of the Sun, typically found in regions of the chromosphere near sunspots.
Other locations or events that can cause stomach pains are quake and volcanic related.
First is the Sierras of CA/NV and then Coalinga but with ear pressure/plugged feeling and achy heart. Next is the Cascades of Oregon and Washington mostly Mt St Helens and Mt Rainier and Oregon’s Mt Hood.. then we get to Landers Quake Zone of S. CA, includes Landers, Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley and Big Bear, the last 3 also include seismic flu*
Then we have the quakes in Alaska and Philippines and especially India /Nepal.
AK and Philippines, cause R side headache and pressure as well as the stomach pains and India/Nepal cause L earaches and some times sharp heart pains with the stomach pains, Nepal can cause very intense stomach pains.
In the last 24 hours we have had at least 3 small to moderate quakes in Philippines and at least two more in India. There has been some small activity in Southern CA .
This is usually just a Blog Update but due to the subject of this blog post, I will also be posting this to my special subscribers. If you would like to receive these updates, please let me know by dropping me an email and I will send you a series of 5 questions and once I rec’d them back, I will add you to my list of subscribers. Either way, I am always open to emails, phone calls, questions, feedback and or observations.
