Hello, my name is Darryl Anne Theresa Mooney and it was just 3 weeks ago an oncologist told me I was too ill for chemo. I always thought that chemo was not an option for me and in the three years have only chosen natural healing. SO look at my pictures and 3 weeks later look at me! Can you guess which picture is which! All natural healing 💕
——————————————————————————————————————–
With that said,  Lets start  from the beginning of my experience:
It’s was three years on 22 August that I was first diagnosed with breast cancer!

And That day changed my life! For the better! It’s been an incredible journey of healing and adventure. http://www.sarahsativa.com/2016/03/12/darryl-anne-mooney-talking-with-sarah/

Three weeks ago I was told the cancer spread to all my bones and lungs. It has physically been a punch bag daily for me since April.

I don’t think many people understand how physically ill I have been. Wondering why          I came away from facebook or not replied to messages.

Sometimes it’s important to have compassion for people with cancer and understand      the pressure and stress it can cause in your life!

Don’t take it personally.

Emotionally I never allow any of it to be greater than me as I know deep down everything is perfect and I am healing! No matter what is thrown in my way! Against all odds.

This is my journey only I can be the admiral of my ship! It’s built on love, faith and courage.

It has taken me through stormy waters and to incredibly peaceful sunrises and calm seas. Both equally as healing and teaching me all I need to know.                                                 God is my amazing teacher.

Some of my passengers jumped ship along the way and that’s ok too as I am here standing Tall no matter what. This is about me not anyone else.

Each and everyday brings me closer to myself, to God and gratitude for this amazing journey!

Beautiful synchronicity: The universe is showing you that you are loved and cared for       by seen and unseen forces.

I am praising heaven! Today I give thanks to God for the healing that had been showered upon me on all levels in my life.

I am so grateful I am in Germany with the best Dr! Dr Weber! I tell you something it’s very special here built on vortex  and the energy is amazing!! Nobody looks sick or acts it …. it’s more like a hotel here …. he’s done everything amazing and he’s so good with all patients.

I have great news my bloods are all good and white cells! My CEA has gone from 394.2 to 364.9 in 7 days!! I am buzzing and so happy. I know that everything I have felt, believed in my heart, I am finally achieving! Its been the most incredible biggest experience of my life!

It’s taken me on so many journeys, highs and lows, but I’ve always had faith in God and    in my inner voice of truth. I have never given up ever despite the deepest pain I have encountered, I always trusted!

So many along the way have questioned and dismissed my choices but I still continue       to listen to God my father and know no matter what would be thrown my way…. I would get here one day!

I want everyone to understand and know the truth about cancer and the treatments offered. One in two people are being diagnosed with cancer so everyone is affected whether it’s you or a loved one!

And so I am here in the right place and a new chapter has opened. I am healing and I am celebrating and most of all despite what The oncologist told me in the UK on 2nd August there is no fat lady singing! 💕 my truth and the love for myself and my incredible children always keeps me alive and strong! Never ever ever give up! always remember everything is possible 💕

Many have asked me so I wanted to share with you all how I came to be at the Marinus klinik in Germany.

A while back my cousin told me of a friend of hers whose daughter Audrey was diagnosed with cancer in Ireland.

She contacted me for advise and I was delighted to help. I then went to Peru and Audrey came to Germany which I was unaware of. We were not in contact after that.

Three weeks ago when I suddenly needed a blood transfusion and tests my cousin came over from Ireland. The day before she bumped into her friend by chance and she told her Audrey had been to the Marinus Klinik.  https://www.facebook.com/Marinus-am-Stein-200758593307427/

The previous morning after I did my blood test thinking all was ok I met up for breakfast with my daughter Lulu Cole. She had been on holiday in Switzerland. She spoke about Germany and I said “you couldn’t pay me to go to Germany I wouldn’t want to ever go there!”.

I then went into the veg store and the man in the shop was talking about Germany! Which I thought at the time was strange as I have never spoken about Germany before!

That eve on a show ” come dine with me” just by chance came on the telly a couple had been to Germany and their themed night was German food and Beer!! I remember thinking at the time that’s funny!

A few hours later my Dr phoned concerned telling me my blood results and how ill I was! My cousin arrived the next day!

We clearly knew then that I needed to have treatments quickly. My cousin told me about Audrey!

I saw the synchronicity of events and how God was guiding me and had been always.            It was powerful!

I trusted so much that I didn’t even google it, I knew this was the place I needed to be.        I set up my “Godfundme” account and two weeks later…… You literally paid me to come    to Germany!! Incredible right!

Not only am I here healing in the most amazing place with the best Dr….. Guess who happened to be here at the same time? Audrey arrived two days after me so we got to   meet and share our journey!

It was so meant to happen and the best part in all this is I thought I was helping    Audrey     a year ago but in fact she was sent to me to help me!

When I needed my blood transfusion Audrey sat with me the whole time.

So what I really want to share with you apart from this lovely story is for anyone             with cancer see past this word, this fear, this lump you have. And Look through the shadows my dears and know your life and healing is waiting on the other side!

Have faith God is always with you and cancer is about healing not dying.

Today has been powerful in so many ways in my life and the healing process shedding     all dis ease that does not serve me or my children.

It’s been exciting today for me and a massive step forward to think I’ve come here in a wheelchair and 10 days later I walked into town for the first time with Trish Chambers Damron. Its about 20 mins walk!

The weekends consist of the injections and three therapies …  Bio mat Magnetic field … Intravenous Vitamin c    IV Selenium   Folic acid    Thymus Ozone blood   Ozone therapy. Trish and Darryl were done by 10:30am so we hopped on a train to Salzburg!

$20,000 USD for three weeks is to be expected 🙂

 It was about 9 months ago when I asked my sister… “When you kick cancers ass, where do you want to go to celebrate?” She told me she’d get back to me but she knew exactly where she wanted to go… where they filmed The Sound of Music! It just can’t be coincidence that we ended up at this amazing cancer clinic just an hour and a half train ride from Salzburg!

We had an incredibly awesome day even though we got caught in a downpour with           no umbrella! Oooops…😉

I was so proud! I am so proud of me! I am also physically stronger and emotionally stronger!

So yesterday I shared a beautiful Story about how I got here!

Today I want to share with you another one!

Yesterday we went to Salzburg, Austria which was beautiful!

We went into the cathedral to say some prayers. When we did and lit candles which was so beautiful and moving I said to the girls I’m going to look for St Antony as he was my nanas favourite Saint and say a prayer.

I walked around this amazing building I got head to toe goose bumps the minute I touched the entrance and walked in the energy was so powerful.

I couldn’t find Saint Anthony so I walked to the corner of the church and looked up and there was this huge statue of St Theresa!!!

(Some background on St Theresa)

A friend of mine from Ireland contacted me before I came here. I hadn’t spoken to her      in years. She asked me if I prayed to Saint Theresa.  I said no but I took St Theresa for      my confirmation name so thank you for reminding me, I will.

So I ordered her book, the story of a soul and came to Germany. Saint Theresa is known    as the little flower and her flower is the rose and gives messages through them.

My friend Lynda said to me before I came look out for the roses when you get there!      Well I walked into my room and there’s roses growing outside my bedroom window.         I watch the bees come every morning and listen to them buzzing.

Taking the time to smell the fragrance of roses on our tables when we dine and           outside Dr Webers office!

I have been praying and connecting with St Theresa since I’ve been here. Friday Christy one of the gorgeous ladies  here was sent flowers by her husband.  She put one flower in small bottle for us all.  She had lilies and then a rose.  I asked her who has the lily as she said yours is the Rose Darryl! I smiled 💕

So getting back to the Cathedral!

I looked up and there was a huge statue of St Theresa! I was so blown away and emotional. I stood there with Trish holding hands saying a prayer together!

Suddenly out of nowhere a man walked up to me and said Hi I’m Anthony and held out his hand!!!! I kid you not!

We spoke for a while and he said keep praying to Saint Theresa and our Lady that’s where miracles happen! He said to Trish and I he would pray for us tonight and walked off!!

There was no Statue of St Anthony in the Cathedral, but that was more than enough for me!

As we left the cathedral and walked down the cobbled street, the three of us so emotional and in deepest gratitude a small feather just floated gently down beside us.

Yesterday we were gone for 13 hours a day of sun, laughter, emotions, sisterhood, the sound of music and Heaven showering it’s blessings on us!

In two weeks….I arrived in a wheelchair yesterday I ran up flight of stairs to catch the train! The girls were so impressed and me too…. So I guess you could say that I am on    the mend… What do you think??

I’ve put on much needed weight as you can see from the photos and will keep gaining weight each day please God!

So many magical things have happened to me on my journey as you know! Faith and     love is where it’s at and the magnificent souls you cherish along the way!

I am so grateful for everything and know I am healing! Keep smiling and finding the Golden God nuggets in your life!

Look at me heal and soar high!! I am a warrior and thank you all for believing in me       and sending me here!

To inspire you……………… This is a poem written by my friend Darryl Anne Mooney. Whatever darkness you are going through, it’s just molding you towards a new beginning.

💕 The Shadows of Life 💕
Look through life’s shadows my dears
As we watch them encircle and play in and out…
Giving us fears til we cant even shout
Look through those shadows my dears
Look through those shadows and don’t be afraid
They move as a mist and in time will fade
We all have our troubles and a dread in our throat
As the going gets tough and we feel we cant cope
Just think of those moments as a wil o the whisp
An intangible nothing just like a mist
Look through the shadows my dears
Although there’s an end – there’s a beginning a new
Perhaps the time is not yet for it to happen to you
But if you see it is patiently waiting for You – through your pain
See clearly with courage with hope and self love
And you will see your survival and the help from above
look through the shadows my dears
Never doubt its not there don’t think of despair
Look through the shadows your NEW Life is THERE
It wil hold happiness love and perhaps a few knocks
unexplained moments and quite a few shocks
But you will have accepted acknowledged and know
You can take from life whatever it will throw
Tragedies in life are not what have occurred
But there for each spirit to learn how to serve
So look through the shadows my dears
When the shadows have past and you have peace at last
And your life you find is back on track
Remember the mist the shadows of old
Remember just what you have been told
This gift I have given this love I give you
Is an understanding of life know to so few
So when you see someone troubled or sad
Just tell them that life is not always bad
If they just look through the shadows my dears 💕

The One Secret You Need to Know to Awaken Your Inner Energy Healer

03242014_TheOneSecret

 

Long ago, humans had powers that today we consider extraordinary. Our ancestors were able to connect to each other through telepathy, talk to loved ones who had passed beyond the physical plane, and conduct powerful healings using energy medicine. Though energy healing is no longer  an everyday routine  for  most people,  while those skills are not lost! Energy medicine can become a daily part of your life like it was for the ancients,  and with this secret I’m going to share, you can learn to heal yourself, your family and friends, and even your pets.  You have an energy healer inside you—it’s just waiting to be awakened!

Healing at Your Fingertips

Shamans and medicine men and women were respected for their wisdom and    knowledge, which was passed down through generations. I have been fortunate enough    to study with religious leaders, also shamans, and even mystical beings on other planes in order to hone my own healing abilities and become a spiritual teacher who can now guide you into the realms of spirit.  With this technique,  you can become a shaman— a healer. You will be amazed as your natural-born healing talents emerge and you can heal yourself emotionally, physically, and spiritually, and begin to treat others for their ailments as well.

 Energy healing begins with doing the requisite self-work to resolve issues that may be disrupting the flow of energy in your field. The work can include spending time in nature to get grounded, meditating to expand your consciousness, journaling to get in touch with your emotions  and release past emotional traumas,  and healing courses in order to clear your chakras of blockages.  You may have already reached a higher state of consciousness and are prepared to take the next step on your journey toward becoming an energy healer.

 

You probably know about the seven chakras which are points on your body that spin energy in and out from your personal energy field to the universal energy field. But did  you know there is another key point that is essential to uncovering your spiritual gifts, including the gift of healing? This point is often overlooked, but it’s very important. Let  me introduce you to the thymus.

 

03242014_TheOneSecret_3

 

Where Your Spiritual Development Sits

Your thymus is a lymphoid gland that is part of your immune system and has a direct impact on your health by helping your body fight viruses. Your thymus also plays a chief role as the seat of your spiritual development.

The thymus is a small raised spot on your chest, between your throat chakra and your heart chakra, just below the space where the two sides of your collar bone come together. This acorn-sized gland can have mountain-sized effects on your physical, emotional, and spiritual health,  and activating your thymus  can boost your spiritual growth  and reveal your inherent energy healing capabilities.b That’s right. Activating your thymus is the secret to uncovering your inner energy healer!

 

03242014_TheOneSecret_4

Small Gland, Huge Spiritual Impact

When you activate your thymus, it becomes expanded, triggering the opening of     channels to higher realms. An activated thymus acts like a beacon, telling the universe  that you are part of the pantheon of light workers, that your intentions are full of love.  This message spreads throughout the cosmos  and becomes your special “signature.”Your thymus activation  will also help prepare you for spiritual initiations into higher levels, which means you will be a step closer on the path to Source.

03242014_TheOneSecret_5

 

Say Hello to Your Inner Energy Healer

As your thymus opens further, the spiritual talents you have will reveal themselves.     Since energy healing sits in our collective unconscious, you have the ability to heal even      if it doesn’t manifest itself immediately after activating your thymus. We all move at our own spiritual pace, and your journey can’t be rushed, but trust that you will develop the skills as long as your intention remains true.  In  this YouTube video  I walk you through    the complete process of activating your thymus so you can connect to Spirit and wake the inner energy healer I know is inside of you. It’s who you were born to be, so embrace your birthright today.

Good Night Sleep and Serotonin

psychedlic-lsd-pill

Science FINALLY Found The Key Neurotransmitter To Spirituality And Higher Consciousness!

Science has found the key in the brain to higher consciousness and it is        also what makes you feel fulfilled and happy in life.

A team of Swedish researchers having found …. the presence of a receptor that regulates   general serotonin activity in the brain correlates with people’s capacity for transcendence, the ability to apprehend phenomena that cannot be explained objectively.  Scientists have for long suspected that serotonin influences spirituality.  They found that drugs known to alter serotonin such as LSD also induce mystical experiences.  If this neurotransmitter is released in huge quantities into the body,  the individual ….  will  reach  a higher state of consciousness. An immense feeling of joy and happiness takes over (4).

Have you ever come across the term LSD? Well, I’m sure you have. LSD or lysergic acid diethylamide  is  a powerful drug  that can make or mar.  While it can churn out millions    for the peddler it can ruin the one who ingests it.  So notorious  is this one that the mere possession of it can see you to the gallows. Now what offence can LSD commit? Why are the ones introduced to it ready to throw away every penny they have just to buy it? Let’s find out.

In 1938 Albert Hoffman a Swiss Scientist, synthesized LSD while researching lysergic   acid derivatives, from the ergot fungus that grows on rye.  While re-synthesizing LSD he accidentally absorbed a small quantity of the same through his fingertips. He experienced something unfamiliar, something strong. It was the strong effects of LSD (1).

Later on in the 1940s, LSD made its entry in the health market under the name Delysid.   It was marketed to psychiatrists as a tool for understanding psychosis and for facilitating psychotherapy.  A patient administered  Delysid  could capture repressed memories. The psychiatrist could get an insight into the patient’s mind via a primary process induced by the hallucinogen.  The drug found widespread acceptance.  Timothy Leary,  a lecturer in Psychology at Harvard University in the 1950s, was a great advocate of LSD. But in 1965   it was banned in the US. Timothy Leary  was tried for unlawful possession of marijuana cigarettes and put behind bars. He was sentenced to 30 years.

What actually happens when you ingest LSD?

Dr. Fahad Basheer

When ingested LSD acts on specific receptors in the body and binds with them.                   A feeling akin to pleasure and ecstasy sweeps through the being. But what has LSD got     to do with serotonin?  The specific receptors  are  none other than serotonin receptors themselves.  5HT type 2 receptors  are the receptors  where the entire serotonin binds. These receptors are there within all and the correct peptide that ought to bind there is serotonin itself. The power of serotonin peptide is so great that LSD is no match for it.   But to experience  it one needs  to reach a point called unconditional love.

Serotonin unlike other peptides has the power to hold sway over the human mind and body.  Made up of tryptophan amino acid,  serotonin peptide is a potent mood booster. It   is a powerful antidepressant and anti-anxiety peptide. At the physical level it has amazing anti-aging properties.  It eliminates the free radicals  that  accelerate the aging process.  A low-level of the peptide can result in eating disorders and obesity.

READ: Scientists Took Images Of The Brains Of People On LSD. The Results BLEW Their Minds!

Serotonin or 5-hydroxytryptamine is a monoamine neurotransmitter that was initially believed to be produced in just one location in the body i.e. the brain. However as research on the topic advanced, it was found 95% of the total serotonin in the human body is produced in the gut,  in the enterochromaffin cells.  While The rest  of  the  serotonin is synthesized in the serotonergic neurons  of  the central nervous system.  The brain cannot depend upon serotonin supply from outside sources  i.e.  the gut because it  i.e.  serotonin, is incapable  of  crossing the blood-brain barrier.  Which protects the brain from external invasions. Hence, the brain has to source its requirement of the neurotransmitter from within.

Serotonin contributes to the feeling of well-being and hence, is often referred to as the ‘happiness hormone’.  The gut bacteria aids in the production of this neurotransmitter.        It imparts a sense of love within the gut in an individual and is also actively involved in preventing depression and regulating sleep,  appetite and body temperature.  However,     its influence is not limited to the gut alone.

Studies have revealed that serotonin is a potent accelerator critical to maturation of the brain. It has a powerful influence on the brain neurons responsible for mood, sexual desire and functioning, appetite, memory, learning and social behavior.  Deficiency of the peptide can lead to autism and Down syndrome.

When serotonin is produced in a balanced  amount an immense spiritual feeling takes over. Serotonin is the hormone and the neurotransmitter that makes one feel the spiritual bliss and well-being.

Lysergic acid diethylamide abbreviated LSD or LSD-25, also known as lysergide (INN)   and colloquially as acid,  is a psychedelic drug  of the ergoline family,  well known for its psychological effects, which can include altered thinking processes, closed- and open-eye visuals,  synesthesia,  an altered sense of time and spiritual experiences,  as well as for its key role in 1960s counterculture. It  is  used  mainly  as  an  entheogen, recreational drug, and as an agent in psychedelic therapy. LSD is non-addictive, is not known to cause brain damage, and has extremely low toxicity relative to dose.  However,  several acute adverse psychiatric reactions such as anxiety, paranoia, and delusions are possible.[

Energy Balance Within !!!

Energy balance within living organisms is a complex process in which energy input, determined by quantity and quality of caloric intake,   is balanced by energy expenditure, which includes physical activity, exercise, and thermogenesis, with the processes being exquisitely regulated by environmental, physiologic and genetic influences, as well as by bio behavioral influences including appetite, satiety and sleep, to facilitate normal growth, development and function.

Integrating energy balance and fatty acids to improve reproductive processes in dairy cows
Abnormalities in any aspect of these processes may result in underweight and malnutrition or overweight and obesity and a variety of comorbid conditions. Obesity can be associated with multiple comorbidities including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and a variety of malignancies. In contrast, physical activity and exercise have been associated with prevention of these disorders and with beneficial effects in their therapy and outcomes
 More specifically, physical activity and exercise are associated with reduced risk of some malignancies, with evidence considered convincing for colon cancer, probable for endometrial and post-menopausal breast cancer and limited for lung, and pancreatic cancers. Carefully designed programs of moderate to aggressive physical activity and exercise in patients with cancer can lead to improved quality of life, reduced cancer related fatigue, improved cardiovascular fitness, reduced visceral fat mass and improved bone mineral density
 Moreover, exercise has more recently been shown to improve both overall and, in some cases, cancer-specific survival. Yet concern exists that exhaustive exercise may cause sufficient increase in oxidative stress to increase inflammation, impair immune function and allow for increased tumor growth. Thus, careful examination of the risks and benefits associated with exercise interventions and their potential mechanisms of action is a central theme in considerations of energy balance and cancer.
The incidence of several types of cancer is reduced by regular physical activity. Several possible mechanisms have been cited as potential mediators of the beneficial effect of physical activity on cancer prevention, including immune regulation. The immune system plays an important role in controlling tumor development by resolving inflammation and by detecting and eliminating transformed cells via a variety of mechanisms including macrophage phagocytosis and/or cytotoxicity, NK cell function, and T cell cytokine production and/or cytotoxicity.
 The immune system can also play a role in tumor promotion. The current review focuses on the role of acute and chronic, moderate aerobic exercise on immune endpoints relevant to anti-tumor immunity, including macrophage, NK cell and T lymphocyte function. Both acute and chronic exercise have been shown to consistently enhance phagocytosis and anti-tumor activity of macrophages which may contribute to better immunosurveillance and protection from tumor progression.
 In contrast, there is heterogeneity in the literature regarding the role of acute and chronic exercise on NK cell and T cell function. There is a growing body of evidence to suggest chronic exercise training enhances antigen-specific T cell proliferation and cytokine production, which may play a role in anti-tumor immunity. However, to date, no studies have explored the role of exercise in regulating the immune response to tumors. Future studies should focus on immune regulation in tumor-bearing hosts to gain a better understanding of the complex relationship between exercise, immune regulation, stress management and cancer control.    https://www.mskcc.org/videos/exercise-survivors

Yoga: Fight stress and find serenity

Is yoga right for you? It is if you want to fight stress, get fit and stay healthy.

Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing,            and meditation or relaxation. Yoga may help reduce stress, lower blood pressure             and lower your heart rate. And almost anyone can do it.

Understanding yoga

Yoga — a mind-body practice — is considered one of many types of complementary and integrative health approaches. Yoga brings together physical and mental disciplines that may help you achieve peacefulness of body and mind. This can help you relax and manage stress and anxiety.

 Yoga has many styles, forms and intensities. Hatha yoga, in particular, may be a good choice for stress management. Hatha is one of the most common styles of yoga, and beginners may like its slower pace and easier movements. But most people can benefit from any style of yoga — it’s all about your personal preferences.

The core components of hatha yoga and most general yoga classes are:

  • Poses. Yoga poses, also called postures, are a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility. Poses range from lying on the floor while completely relaxed to difficult postures that may have you stretching your physical limits.
  • Breathing. Controlling your breathing is an important part of yoga. Yoga teaches    that controlling your breathing can help you control your body and quiet your mind.
  • Meditation or relaxation. In yoga, you may incorporate meditation or relaxation. Meditation may help you learn to be more mindful and aware of the present moment without judgment.

The health benefits of yoga

 The potential health benefits of yoga include:
  • Stress reduction. A number of studies have shown that yoga may help reduce    stress and anxiety. It can also enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being.
  • Improved fitness. Practicing yoga may lead to improved balance, flexibility,       range of motion and strength.
  • Management of chronic conditions. Yoga can help reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. Yoga might also help alleviate chronic conditions, such as depression, pain, anxiety and insomnia.

Yoga precautions

 Yoga is generally considered safe for most healthy people when practiced under the guidance of a trained instructor. But there are some situations in which yoga might pose a risk.

See your health care provider before you begin yoga if you have any of the following conditions or situations:

  • A herniated disk
  • A risk of blood clots
  • Eye conditions, including glaucoma
  • Pregnancy — although yoga is generally safe for pregnant women, certain poses   should be avoided
  • Severe balance problems
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Uncontrolled blood pressure

You may be able to practice yoga in these situations if you take certain precautions, such   as avoiding certain poses or stretches.  If you develop symptoms,  such as pain,  or have concerns, see your doctor to make sure you’re getting benefit and not harm from yoga.

How Your Brain Can Turn Anxiety into Calmness

Getting started

Although you can learn yoga from books and videos, beginners usually find it             helpful to learn with an instructor. Classes also offer camaraderie and friendship,       which are also important to overall well-being.

When you find a class that sounds interesting, talk with the instructor so that you         know what to expect. Questions to ask include:

  • What are the instructor’s qualifications? Where did he or she train and how long       has he or she been teaching?
  • Does the instructor have experience working with students with your needs or      health concerns? If you have a sore knee or an aching shoulder, can the instructor   help you find poses that won’t aggravate your condition?
  • How demanding is the class? Is it suitable for beginners? Will it be easy enough            to follow along if it’s your first time?

Achieving the right balance

Every person has a different body with different abilities. You may also need to modify         yoga postures based on your individual abilities. Your instructor may be able to suggest modified poses. Choosing an instructor who is experienced and who understands your needs is important to safely and effectively practice yoga.

Regardless of which type of yoga you practice, you don’t have to do every pose. If a pose    is uncomfortable or you can’t hold it as long as the instructor requests, don’t do it. Good instructors will understand and encourage you to explore — but not exceed — your personal limits.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1r8NSzAf2w

Introduction to Nutrition !!!!

While battling cancer, along with  lifestyle changes, certain changes need to be made  when it comes to the intake of food. There are certain food items that trigger cancer       and others that help to combat it.   Avoid Sugar and Saturated Fat!!!

Healthy foods are not only high in nutritional value, but also help to prevent diseases    and to cure them as well. Refined foods like white rice, white bread, cereals, crackers     and baked goods like cookies, for example, have all been found to be directly connected     to causes of cancer.

Foods which are treated and contain ingredients like hydrogenated oils, sodium nitrate, sodium benzoate, synthetic food colours, MSG along with other additives,  preservatives and chemicals are known as cancer promoting foods. A person with cancer should avoid these at all costs.

What kind of diet is known as an anti-cancer diet? Clearly a diet containing food items which have strong ingredients for cancer prevention. In order to fight cancer, add as much as possible nutrition, minerals and vitamins to your diet. This is dependent on the foods you eat and also the drinks you choose.

Drinking eight glasses of filtered water is vital for any diet as it keeps the body hydrated and flushes out toxins. A high-fibre diet containing foods like legumes or something from the bean family or a leafy vegetable for instance are important ingredients that should be included in your cancer-fighting diet.

Foods that help to fight cancer include tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, berries, certain teas like green tea extract, foods with whole grains, the skin of red grapes and beans and the list goes on. Any foods which contain anti-oxidants will be very beneficial like beans, apricots and spinach to name a few.

Another important consideration in a cancer-fighting diet is to eat pure or organic foods. Organic foods are grown by farmers who do not use chemicals and pesticides that can trigger cancer in the long run.

What is Toxicology?

Toxicology is the scientific study of adverse effects that occur in living organisms due        to chemicals.  It involves observing and reporting symptoms, mechanisms, detection       and treatments of toxic substances, in particular relation to the poisoning of humans.

It includes environmental agents and chemical compounds found in nature, as well           as pharmaceutical compounds that are synthesized for medical use by humans. These substances may produce toxic effects in living organisms including disturbance in growth patterns, discomfort, disease and death.

Importance of Dose

The dose of the substance is an important factor in toxicology, as it has a significant relationship with the effects experienced by the individual. It is the primary means of classifying the toxicity of the chemical, as it measures the quantity of the chemical, or      the exposure to the substance. All substances have the potential to be toxic if given to living organisms in the right conditions and dose.

LD50 is a common term used in toxicology, which refers to the dose of a substance that displays toxicity in that it kills 50% of a test population. In scientific research, rats or other surrogates are usually used to determine toxicity and the data are extrapolated to use by humans.

A conventional relationship between dose and toxicity has traditionally been accepted, in that greater exposure to a chemical leads to higher risk of toxicity. However, this concept has been challenged by a study of endocrine disruptors and may not be a straightforward relationship.

Safe eating during cancer treatment

When you have cancer, you need good nutrition to help keep your body strong.                  To do this you need to be aware of the foods you eat and how you prepare them.

Some raw foods can contain germs that can hurt you when cancer or treatment weakens your immune system. Ask your health care provider about how to eat well and safely.

Eggs can have a bacteria called Salmonella on their inside and outside. This is why eggs should be cooked completely before eating.

  • Yolks and whites should be cooked solid. DO NOT eat runny eggs.
  • DO NOT eat foods that may have raw eggs in them (such as certain Caesar salad dressings, cookie dough, cake batter, and hollandaise sauce).

Be careful when you have dairy products:

  • All milk, yogurt, cheese, and other dairy should have the word pasteurized on           their containers.
  • DO NOT eat soft cheeses or cheeses with blue veins (such as Brie, Camembert, Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola, and Bleu).
  • DO NOT eat Mexican-style cheeses (such as queso blanco fresco and cotija).

Fruits and vegetables:

  • Wash all raw fruits, vegetables, and fresh herbs with cold running water.
  • DO NOT eat raw vegetable sprouts (such as alfalfa and mung bean).
  • DO NOT use fresh salsa or salad dressings that are kept in the refrigerated               cases of the grocery store.
  • Drink only juice that says pasteurized on the container.

DO NOT eat raw honey. Eat only heat-treated honey. Avoid sweets that have               creamy fillings.

Cook Foods Safely

When you cook, make sure you cook your food long enough.

DO NOT eat uncooked tofu. Cook tofu for at least 5 minutes.

When eating chicken and other poultry, cook to a temperature of 165°F (74°C).                Use a food thermometer to measure the thickest part of the meat.

If you cook beef, lamb, pork, or venison:

  • DO NOT eat raw meat, such as Japanese sashimi.
  • Make sure meat is not red or pink before you eat it.
  • Cook meat to 160°F (74°C).

When eating fish, oysters, and other shellfish:

  • DO NOT eat raw fish (such as sushi), raw oysters, or any other raw shellfish.
  • Make sure all fish and shellfish you eat is cooked thoroughly.

Heat all casseroles to 165°F (73.9°C). Warm hot dogs and lunch meats to steaming      before you eat them.

Be Careful When You Eat Out

When you dine out, stay away from:

  • Raw fruits and vegetables
  • Salad bars, buffets, sidewalk vendors, potlucks, and delis

Ask if all fruit juices are pasteurized.

Use only salad dressings, sauces, and salsas from single-serving packages. Eat out at    times when restaurants are less crowded. Always ask for your food to be prepared fresh, even at fast food restaurants.

Food has been the medicine of humanity since the dawn of time. Many herbs that we associate only with seasoning our food are, in fact, potent herbal medicines.  http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/your-medicine-your-pantry#

Do  you  realize  that  one of the most powerful cures  for  cancer  is  streaming over our      heads each and every day, free of charge? It’s sunlight, which is astounding in its ability   to prevent and cure cancer.  If it were a mainstream drug,  it would probably make the cover of Time magazine  and be heralded  as the greatest medical breakthrough in the history of modern science. It’s that good.

Sunlight exposure reduces the risk of many cancers by more than 50 percent and even helps reverse certain types of cancers through the creation of vitamin D in the body. It’s a magnificent natural healing modality, and it’s been right in front of our eyes, every single day, since before Homo sapiens even evolved on this planet. Yet somehow, after spending billions of dollars on so-called medical research to find “cures” for various cancers, almost no one from the world of mainstream medicine has yet acknowledged the healing power of natural sunlight and vitamin D.  http://in5d.com/sun-gazing-why-i-stare-at-the-sun/

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/01/08/feasting-on-sunshine.aspx

None of them have actually prescribed sunlight to patients, except for perhaps a handful  of pioneering researchers like Dr. Michael Holick, who was also attacked for speaking out about the truth of sunlight and cancer. By and large, the medical community has not only ignored this truly miraculous cure for many types of cancer; it has worked hard to discredit it.

 For those of you who’ve been a fan of the Functional Forum for a long time, this was the brainchild of myself and Gabe Hoffman — but what you may not know is that Gabe has been touched very closely by cancer. And that’s why Gabe delivered his talk “Cancer is a myth” at the January 2015 Functional Forum dedicated to oncology.
============================================================

Cancer IS… 

Cancer has been a very personal story for me.

by Gabe Hoffman 🙂

When I was 17, I had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease — a liquid cancer, liquid tumor, whatever you’re calling it and up until I was 24, between myself and my father,    my family had been intimately involved with cancer care, conventional, moving towards holistic towards the end for about seven years.

So it is personal but really, who is it not personal for these days? I would say everybody in the audience,  every person watching this around the country, if you’re in other countries, this is no longer something that happens to some random person that we we feel bad for and hopefully it doesn’t happen to us.

This is a part of 21st century living and I feel that how we are looking at cancer could take  a large shift. So, the name of this talk, which is also dramatic, is “Cancer is a Myth”.

Cancer is not a Disease…

In our society, very often we use the word myth to mean false and so, do I mean, cancer    is false?  Well,  cancer has been pretty real for me.  In fact,  it’s one of the real-est things that’s ever happened. One of the most life changing events that’s happened to me, that’s happened to my family and the people I’ve been around — but when I use the word myth, I’m talking about a story, I’m talking about mythology.

I believe cancer is a part of the modern mythology of today’s world. It’s a story more     than anything else. Specifically, it’s what we could call the hero’s journey.

Quoting Joseph Campbell, “We must let go of the life we have planned so as to accept      the one that is waiting for us.”

There is no clear example, greater of a force that will come into your life and change       and stop you in your tracks than cancer right now — and how we look at that can be       very different.

Cancer is Fungus…

Different people are going to receive this information and it’s going to… some people aren’t feeling like that. They don’t feel like they’re on a hero’s journey but this is a hero’s journey.  There is an arc in the storyline of your life.  If this happens to you, this is an opportunity to change the way you see where you’re headed  and I feel that if we look at cancer especially, just with how it’s growing, as a group of cells that have to be attacked, we’re missing out on a lot.

We’re missing some of the most powerful aspects. I mean cancer slows down and changes the way we’re experiencing our day to day world. It also changes the relationship with our family.  It changes the relationship with the people close to us.  I mean,  most of the most beautiful experiences in my life came directly as a result of this. I think all of us have seen that. If we look at what is happening in a hero’s journey and what is happening in a cancer patient’s journey… it’s a story about love, it’s a story about compassion, it’s a story about fear, it’s about confronting death, it’s about change, it’s about shifting in values you know, what epic drama in the world?

Your Cancer is Back…

What period of time have we not had a story like this and this is part of what’s going on today and this is the story that’s helping bring people together more than it’s taking us away from each other. There’s so much beauty wrapped up in the story and of course it’s very personal.  For me,  I certainly was not on what I would think of as a hero’s journey and I was only 17.

The video goes into detail on a number of questions, but if you are in fact the hero of your own personal journey,  I would take a minute  and ask ourselves this question collectively  as a planet, as a community and as an individual, “ALSO If you were the hero of your own journey and no matter what’s going on,  whatever the crisis is, if it’s physical health, if it’s money, if it’s relationship, you’re the hero,  this is your storyline, what would the hero do now?”

That’s the question. What would they do now? If every day we wake up asking that question, I think we can go to sleep well and I’m looking forward to that attitude carrying us forward in today’s world.

The Fabric 0f Mind

 

Anatomy of an Illness:
IN A Study group of 121 ethnically diverse and healthy adults that were recruited. These were comprised of 86 females and 35 males with an average age of          24 (range 18-59) and an average body mass index of 23. The participants completed a personality test which measures five major dimensions of personality — extraversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness — (NEO-FFI McCrae and Costa, 2004). Blood samples were collected from each volunteer for gene expression analysis and their typical smoking, drinking and exercise behaviours were also recorded for control purposes. Gene expression analysis was carried out at the Social Genomics Core Laboratory at UCLA.

Extraversion boosts immune system

Leading the research, Professor Kavita Vedhara, from The University of Nottingham’s School of Medicine, said: “Results indicated  ‘extraversion’ was significantly associated with an increased expression of pro-inflammatory genes and ‘conscientiousness’ was linked to a reduced expression of pro-inflammatory genes.
In other words, individuals whom we would expect to be exposed to more infections as a result of their socially orientated nature (i.e., extraverts) appear to have immune systems that we would expect can deal effectively with infection. While individuals who may be less exposed to infections because of their cautious/conscientious dispositions have immune systems that may respond less well. We can’t, however, say which came first. Is this our biology determining our psychology or our psychology determining our biology?”
These two clear associations were independent of the recorded health behaviours of the participants and subsets of white blood cells which are the cells of the body’s immune system. The study also found that expression of antiviral/antibody-related genes was not significantly associated with any personality dimension.
In the remaining three categories of personality, ‘openness’ also trended towards a reduced expression of pro-inflammatory genes and ‘neuroticism’ and ‘agreeableness’ remained unassociated with gene expression.
The research concludes that although the biological mechanisms of these associations need to be explored in future research, these new data may shed new light on the long-observed epidemiological associations between personality, physical health, and human longevity.
‘Personality and gene expression: Do individual differences exist in the leukocyte transcriptome?’ by Kavita Vedhara, Sana Gill, Lameese Eldesouky, Bruce Campbell, Jesusa Arevalo, Jeffrey Ma and Steven Cole, is now available online in Psychoneuroendocrinology, an Elsevier journal.

In the 1980s, my father, Richard Bergland, collaborated with Norman Cousins.                  In his book The Fabric of Mind (the link is external) my father wrote,

Therefore it is astonishing to note that they herald a new champion: Norman Cousins, a writer who preaches that ‘hormones of happiness‘ may be released by pleasure,  joy,  humour,  and satisfaction. The rejuvenating power of belly laughter, which Cousins found, when  he  first described  in America’s top medical journal, The New England Journal of Medicine, and later in his book The Anatomy of an Illness.

As a child, Norman Cousins suffered from poor health and was misdiagnosed with tuberculosis and placed in a sanatorium. Being surrounded by illness, trapped indoors, and detached from the vitality of the outside world shaped Cousins’ lifelong approach to sickness and health.

Cousins said that as a youngster he “set out to discover exuberance.” As a teenager, he dedicated himself to athletics and used baseball as a way to fortify his resilience.

As an adult—when Cousins was diagnosed with a terminal illness—he decided  a hospital environment wasn’t the best place for his body to get well. Against his doctors advice he developed a personalized recovery program based on a positive attitude, love, faith, hope, and laughter.

Cousins said, “I made the joyous discovery that ten minutes of genuine belly laughter had an anesthetic effect and would give me at least two hours of pain-free sleep.” He reported, “When the pain-killing effect of the laughter wore off, we would switch on the motion picture projector again and not infrequently, it would lead to another pain-free interval.”

Recently, other researchers have found evidence that explains how some aspects of our personality may affect our health and well-being. These new findings support long-observed associations between personality traits, physical health, and longevity.

In December 2014, a team of health psychologists at The University of Nottingham and the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) released a study which examined the relationship between certain personality traits and the expression of genes that can affect someone’s health by impacting his or her immune system.

Their study (link is external) used highly sensitive microarray technology to examine relationships between the five major human personality traits and two groups of genes active in human white blood cells (leukocytes): one involving inflammation, and another involving antiviral responses and antibodies.

The participants completed a personality test which measures the classic five major dimensions of personality—extraversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness.

Blood samples were collected from each volunteer for gene expression analysis and their typical smoking, drinking and exercise behaviors were also recorded for control purposes.    The analysis of gene expressions was performed at the Social Genomics Core Laboratory at UCLA.

The findings indicated that ‘extraversion’ was significantly associated with an increased expression of pro-inflammatory genes. This implies that extroverts—who would tend to be exposed to more infections as a result of their socially orientated disposition—appeared to have immune system responses that paralleled the increased risk of exposure to germs and allowed them to deal more effectively with infection.

So Human an Animal

In the early 1960s, before I was born, my mother worked with René Dubos at the Rockefeller Institute. René Dubos was a microbiologist and humanitarian credited with discoveries which led to the first antibiotics that were ever manufactured commercially. Prophetically, after his discovery Dubos warned of potential microbial resistance to antibiotics (superbugs) and the importance of humans being exposed to some germs.

My mom took this advice seriously, and encouraged me to be outgoing and curious when I was growing up in Manhattan. She also considered a part of my childhood development the“enriched  environment” of  culture, diversity,  and  ideas  that New York City  had  to  offer—but viewed the international germs that my sisters and I were exposed to everyday as an imp

In 1969, René Dubos won The Pulitzer Prize for So Human, An Animal: How We Are Shaped by Surroundings and Events (link is external) which is one of my all-time favorite books and  has influenced me and my family tremendously. René Dubos was such a mentor to my parents … that they promised to name their first born child after him, hence my older sister’s name, Renée Bergland.

In the 1960s, antibiotics were generally being over-prescribed. Because of the knowledge my parents gained from Dubos, they only allowed me and my siblings to take an antibiotic if it was clearly a non-viral infection that our own immune system couldn’t overcome without drugs. I believe that this has kept my immune system stronger throughout my lifespan.

My mom also strongly encouraged me and my siblings to be adventurous and open to new experience knowing  this exposure would strengthen our immune systems by exposing us to a wide range of microbes.

Thankfully, being sequestered in a sterilized plastic bubble was never        an option when  I was growing up. In my imagination, I have childhood memories of my mom almost encouraging me to lick the subway poles to boost my immune response when I was a toddler, although I’m sure she never took it that far.

Neuroplasticity and Free-Will Make Some Personality Traits Malleable

The recent University of Nottingham study begs the age old nature-nurture question of  whether  biology determines a psychological disposition  o r if  psychology determines our biology. Our personality traits  and  genetic resilience are probably always going to be a mix of both nature and nuture.

I am of a strong belief that mindset and personality are never static or fixed. Yes, each of us is born with unique dispositions but neuroplasticity and our free-will gives every person the ability to fine-tune his or her explanatory style and attitude towards life to some degree. Many of your Big-5 personality traits that you might want to amplify or diminish are in the locus of your control.

I also believe strongly that there is a time and place for all five personality traits to take center stage.  Just like the spokes on  the wheel of a bicycle,  each trait has an important role in our individual and collective survival.  For example,  introversion and introspection throughout the day may be just as important as extraversion, or even more important on certain days. That said,  I believe there is very little room  for chronic neuroticism in any of our lives. ortant part of building our resilience.

In The Athlete’s Way I have a section based on the Five-Factor Personality Model that discusses the role that balancing these five traits played in our evolutionary progress and homeostasis from a neurobiological perspective.

I describe the role of each trait saying, “We developed a sensitivity to   stress (Neuroticism), the need for company, protection and mating (Extroversion), the ability to problem solve (Openness to experience),        the aptitude to cooperate and work collectively (Agreeableness)  and           an obligation to meet social and moral needs of your community (Conscitentoiusness).”

Clearly, my father’s work with Norman Cousins and dinner conversations about the  ‘hormones of  happiness’  influenced     the lens through  which  I look  at  the Big-5  personality traits    and led me to expand on my dad’s neurobiological connections.

On page 274 (link is external) of The Athlete’s Way: Sweat and the Biology of Bliss I describe the hormones and neurochemicals linked to personality traits and the detriments of neuroticism saying:

Neuroticism should never be a part of your game or a part of your life. Strive to eliminate it, because it is the key trait associated with rejection sensitivity and a fear of failure. It raises cortisol and lowers serotonin, which is the most lethal combination to have pumping through your system. Strengthening the other four cardinal traits will boost serotonin (confidence), dopamine (achievement), anandamide (the bliss molecule), and vasopressin/oxytocin (connectedness), while lowering MAOs (serotonin eating Pac-Men) and lowering cortisol (the stress hormone).

Neuroticism Is the Antithesis of Extraversion

My bias against neuroticism was probably subconsciously influenced by Woody Allen’s charactertures of a neurotic, hypochondriac New Yorker in 1970s movies like Annie Hall and Manhattan.

I didn’t want to be a typical high-strung New Yorker, so I consciously practiced being more laid-back  and  easygoing  every day  despite the  potential  pressure-cooker  aspects  of  living  in New York City.  This attitude helped  me  have grace under pressure as an athlete, and kept        my mind and body healthy. Research shows that the same is true for people        of all ages and walks of life.

A 2012 study (link is external) from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, “Positive Attitude Towards Life and Emotional Expression as Personality Phenotypes for Centenarians,” found that ‘personality genes’ may help account for some people living past one hundred years of age.

The researchers assessed the personalities of 243 centenarians and found that there was a common thread of having a positive attitude towards life across the board. Most were also outgoing, optimistic  and  easygoing.  They  also  considered laughter  an important part of life and had a large social network.

Centerarians tended to express their emotions freely rather  than keeping them bottled up. Interestingly, the centenarians also had much lower scores  for displaying neuroticism  and much higher scores for being conscientious compared with a representative sample of the U.S. population.

Conclusion: A Positive Attitude Is Not a Panacea for Many Illnesses, Viruses, and Diseases

As with any plague or pandemic like Ebola or HIV/AIDS we need the most advanced pharmaceuticals and healthcare protocols  to  save  lives  and  to  help people live longer. One important caveat about the ‘power of positive thinking’ and staying healthy is the unintended subtext that imples that if    you get and stay sick  that it’s somehow your fault.  This is wrong.

At the end of the day, staying healthy and fighting illness is always going  to be about taking the best medicine available when necessary, pragmatic optimism, and maintaining a fierce fighting spirit. The mindset of optimal health is often a tightrope walk between 2 extremes of being a delusionally positive Pollyanna or a cynical and neurotic hypochondriac.

Luckily,  with  some  practice  each  of  us  can  identify  our individual personality predispositions  and  practice making appropriate adjustments to  find a sweet spot that marries all    of your personality traits into a blend that keeps you alive and kicking for a long, long time.

Confident and at Ease

 

   I have been watching the Olympics and when I watch such athletes as Katie Ladecky      or Michael Phelps. I always Marvel at those whom have such confidence and ease within perform best.  Same might be said of cancer survivors those that know themselves might perform best on their road to recovery.

If you’re worried about your health, stop. You’re only making it worse. Chronic Stress takes its toll on your body, and new research reveals it is even more dangerous than thought.       Overcoming  your  fear  when  you  are  on  the  run !!!!

Stress causes deterioration in everything from your gums to also your heart and can make you more susceptible  to illnesses ranging  from the common cold to cancer,  according to    a review essay in the December 2007 issue of the Association  for Psychological Science’s magazine Observer. Thanks to new research that’s crossing the disciplines of psychology, medicine, neuroscience and genetics, the mechanisms underlying the connection are rapidly becoming understood.

When an animal perceives danger, a system kicks into gear: A chain reaction of signals releases various hormones — most notably epinephrine (“adrenaline”),  norepinephrine and  cortisol — from  the  adrenal glands  above each kidney.  Norepinephrine  has been shown to strengthen neuron connections in a way that seals in memories of emotionally-charged events, perhaps encouraging us to dwell, and stress, over traumatic incidents.

These hormones boost heart rate, increase respiration and increase the availability of glucose (cellular fuel) in the blood, thereby enabling the well-known “fight or flight” reaction.

Because these responses take a lot of energy, stress simultaneously tells other costly physical processes — including digestion,  reproduction,  physical growth  and  some aspects of the immune system — to shut or slow down.

When occasions to fight or flee are infrequent and threats pass quickly, the body’s stress thermostat adjusts accordingly: The intestines resume digesting food, the sex organs kick back into gear and the immune system resumes fighting infections.

Growing evidence shows that our sensitivity to stress as adults is already “tuned,” so         to speak, in infancy,  according  to  the  review article.  Specifically,  the amount of stress encountered in early life sensitizes an organism to a certain level of adversity; high levels of early life stress ….may result ….  into hypersensitivity to  stress later,  as – well – as  to adult depression.  This is likely  because animals raised in chronically adverse conditions (e.g., high conflict, material deprivation) may expect more of the same in the near future, and their bodies must quickly adjust.

Some people,  and animals,  are more prone to stress,  research shows.  A 2007 study  found that mice who tended to stress out produced too much of a certain protein, which apparently caused them to overreact.

Besides heart disease,  post traumatic stress disorder and depression, chronic stress      has  been linked to ailments  as  diverse  as  intestinal problems,  gum disease,  erectile dysfunction,  growth problems  and  even cancer.  One  study  found  that  people  whom experience  high  amounts of  stress at work  are more likely  to develop Type 2 diabetes. Recent research showed  that a stress hormone could cause skin disorders  like psoriasis and eczema.  Chronic rises in stress hormones have been shown to accelerate the growth  of precancerous cells and tumors; they also lower the body’s resistance to HIV and other cancer-causing viruses like human papilloma virus (the precursor to cervical cancer in women).

According to Stanford neuroendocrinologist Robert Sapolsky, who has studied stress        in baboon troops, it is the relative safety  from  predators  and high amounts of leisure time enjoyed  by  some primates — including humans — that  has  transformed  these useful biological coping mechanisms into a source of pointless suffering and illness.

Dr Bruce Lipton PhD – cell biologist, former medical lecturer, and world-acclaimed author of three books on the New Biology – talks to David Holden on the truth about Cancer. He explains how cancer genes can predispose a person towards cancer, but  don’t mean a person WILL get cancer.

In this conversation at his New Zealand home, Bruce explains the role of Epigenetics        in determining health, and how gene expression depends on:
– nutrition;
– pollution, EMFs and toxins
– our emotional states
– what we perceive and how we see the world.

What happens during stress, and how does it affect your immune system? The difference between old physics  and new physics — and therefore old biology and new biology. Why energy is significant in shaping matter. Why conventional oncology is missing the point, missing a piece of the puzzle. Why nocebo (the opposite of placebo) can cause cancer and death.

Bruce talks about this, and much more, in this video; and in his presentation at the Holistic Cancer Congress in Auckland, New Zealand this March 16th and 17th.     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjTXzlf4Spw

 

What is psychological stress?

Psychological stress describes what people feel when they are under mental, physical, or emotional pressure.  Although  it  is  normal  to  experience  some psychological stress from time to time. People whom experience high levels of psychological stress or who experience it repeatedly over a long period of time    may develop health problems (mental and/or physical).

Stress can be caused both by daily responsibilities and routine events, as well as     by more unusual events,  such as a trauma  or illness in oneself or a close family member.  When people feel  that  they  are unable to manage or control changes caused by cancer or normal life activities, they are in distress. Distress becomes increasingly recognized  as  a  factor that can reduce the quality of life of cancer patients.  There is even some evidence  that  extreme distress is associated with poorer clinical outcomes.  Clinical guidelines  are available to help doctors and nurses assess levels of distress and help patients manage it.

This fact sheet provides a general introduction to the stress that people may experience as they cope with cancer. More detailed information about specific psychological conditions related to stress can be found in the Related Resources and Selected References at the end of this fact sheet.

How does the body respond during stress?

The body responds to physical, mental, or emotional pressure by releasing stress hormones (such as epinephrine and norepinephrine) that increase blood pressure, speed heart rate, and raise blood sugar levels. These changes help a person act with greater strength and speed to escape a perceived threat.

Research has shown that people who experience intense and long-term (i.e., chronic) stress can have digestive problems, fertility problems, urinary problems, and a weakened immune system. People who experience chronic stress are also more prone to viral infections such as the flu or common cold and to have headaches, sleep trouble, depression, and anxiety.

Can psychological stress cause cancer?

Although stress can cause a number of physical health problems,  the evidence    that it can cause cancer is weak.  Some studies  indicated a link between various psychological factors and an increased risk of developing cancer, but others have not.

Apparent links between psychological stress and cancer could arise in several ways. For example, people under stress may develop certain behaviors, such as smoking, overeating,  or drinking alcohol,  which increase a person’s risk for cancer.  Or also someone who has a relative with cancer may have a higher risk for cancer because of a shared inherited risk factor, not because of the stress induced by the family member’s diagnosis.

How does psychological stress affect people who have cancer?

People who have cancer may find the physical, emotional, and social effects of      the disease to be stressful. Those who attempt …to manage… their stress with risky behaviors such as smoking or drinking alcohol or who become more sedentary may have a poorer quality of life after cancer treatment. In contrast, people who are able to use effective coping strategies to deal with stress,  such as  relaxation  and  stress management techniques,  have also been shown to have lower levels of depression, anxiety,  and symptoms related to the cancer and its treatment.  However,  there is no evidence that successful management of psychological stress improves cancer survival.

Evidence from experimental studies does suggest that psychological stress can affect a tumor’s ability to grow and spread. For example, some studies have shown that when mice bearing human tumors were kept confined  or  isolated from other mice—conditions that increase stress — their tumors were more likely to grow and spread (metastasize). In one set of experiments, tumors that were transplanted into the mammary fat pads of mice having much higher rates of spread to the lungs and lymph nodes if the mice were chronically stressed …. than if the mice were not stressed.  Studies in mice and in human cancer cells grown  in the laboratory have found that the stress hormone norepinephrine,  part of the body’s fight – or – flight response system, may promote angiogenesis and metastasis.

In another study, women with triple-negative breast cancer who had been treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy were asked about their use of beta blockers, which are medications  interfere  with  certain  stress hormones,  before hand  and during chemotherapy.  Women who reported  using beta – blockers had a better chance of surviving their cancer treatment without a relapse than women who did not report beta blocker use. There was no difference between the groups, however, in terms of overall survival.

Although there is still no strong evidence stress directly affects cancer outcomes, some data suggest that patients can develop a sense of helplessness or hopelessness when stress becomes overwhelming.  This response is associated  with  higher rates of death, although the mechanism for this outcome is unclear. It may be that people who feel helpless  or  hopeless do not seek treatment when they become ill,  give up prematurely  on  or fail to adhere  to potentially helpful therapy,  and also engage in risky behaviors such as drug use, or do not maintain a healthy lifestyle, resulting in premature death.

How can people who have cancer learn to cope with psychological stress?

Emotional and social support can help patients learn to cope with psychological stress. Such support can reduce levels of depression, anxiety,  and  disease- and treatment-related symptoms among patients.  Approaches  can also include the following:

  • Training in relaxation, meditation, or stress management
  • Counseling or talk therapy
  • Cancer education sessions
  • Social support in a group setting
  • Medications for depression or anxiety
  • Exercise
 fight
There are times that people who have cancer feel weak, helpless, hopeless, so it can       take they in another reality. In fact in a worse reality.

======================================================
They start to feel psychological stress, do not seek treatment, fail to take helpful therapy engage in risky behaviors such as drug use, or do not maintain a healthy      lifestyle, resulting in premature death.

People have to admit that they are the center of things that behave around themselves.     So if you are diagnosed with any cancer type, you have to believe in yourself that you can do it. NEVER GIVE UP! Your thoughts are your destiny.

Emotional and social support can help patients learn to cope with psychological stress. Such support can reduce levels of depression, anxiety, and disease- and treatment-related symptoms among patients. Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.  Start to know yourself.   ALSO Laugh more often, love more, appreciate little things in life, so big things will come to you.
med

It’s very important to find yourself. Spend time with yourself.

Try to explore things, because everything has beauty but not everyone can see it!
Evidence from experimental studies does suggest that psychological stress can affect a tumor’s ability to grow and spread. So you can manage it, make those uncontrollable cells controllable.

Save yourself.

CANCER – There is no universal cure or treatment.

Everything happens for a reason:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85EPbiABqJs

In the Prison of Life you grow very close to your good friends. You know them inside      and out. You talk about everything from your past, present, and future. You grow so close because you are around them all the time;  you  can’t go anywhere  and  neither  can  they. They can tell when something is bothering you nor you are lying or anything else like that. Each person becomes transparent before the other person.

This can be a great thing, but it can also be bad because far too often we …try to impress people and be something that we are not.  Then we just end up looking like liars anyway and make a fool of ourselves.  This is how it works  a lot of times  in  our churches today.     We just time to pretend that everything is going great in life and that we have the perfect little family.
We just put on a mask and pretend to be something that we are not just to impress everyone else. We are afraid to get close to anyone because we are afraid that they might find out our families dirty little secrets. So that hinders our personal walk with the Lord and it hinders us from being the living, breathing, organism called the body of Christ.

God has called each and every believer to be a part of His body and to be transparent before Him and each other, so that we might bare one another’s burdens. This was how      it was in prison  and how it should  be in our everyday life.  So  I  wrote  this  song  about becoming transparent  and  being  Renewed in the Spirit of  Your Mind  putting on the new man who Christ has made you to be. The Scriptures that inspired this song are — Ephesians 2:10, 4:23-24, and John 6:68.    ~Brian Allen~    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FZBql_cWAM

I write this just because of simple reason: Everywhere in the world there are so called miracle cures for cancer (these vary from legal ones to illegal and so on).  These kinds       of solution are said to cure cancer during a single day.
This kind of advertising helps the makers of such „solutions“ earn a lot of money but          it does not help the patient in any way,shape or form.
Science should be trusted .  Of course there are still some questions science can’t answer but one thing is sure:  THERE ARE DIFFERENT FORMS  OF CANCER AND THERE IS NO UNIVERSAL CURE.
HOW DOES CANCER APPEAR
Cancer appears when genes that control the life cycle of a cell change(mutate). Every cell has it’s own life cycle.  After it has been born it can do certain functions before eventually dying. It can also divide itself to form new cell and so on. This is a very controlled process. Genes are meant to control this process. When some of this genes change cancer is formed.
WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THESE GENES
There are many of them and all of these genes have different functions:
-control of intercellular communication
-transfer of information
-some of them are structural
-some of them are ment to fix broken parts of DNA(damage control)
-some of them tell the cell when to divide

DIFFERENT GENES, DIFFERENY FORMS OF CANCER- THERE IS NO UNIVERSAL CURE OR SOLUTION. EVERY CASE OF CANCER IS UNIQUE

Dr. Sebi Nutritional Guide –  Mucus Reducing Alkaline Diet

The herbalist Dr Sebi inspired this mucus reducing alkaline diet, which is made up of non-hybrid alkalizing plant foods.

These foods control the acid level in the body, which protects against harmful mucus buildup that compromises organs and leads to the development of disease.

Hippocrates famously said, “All disease begins in the gut.” I think we can narrow it down further: much modern disease begins in the mucus.

THE ROOT CAUSE OF CANCER – Noble prize Winner Dr. Otto H Warburg . Dr. Warburg has devoted his life to study the causes of cancer.  Warburg  was  awarded  the  1931  prize, not for the cancer work, but for his work on cell respiration.
“All normal cells …. have an absolute requirement for oxygen,  but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. “Deprive a cell 35% of  its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”  Dr.  Warburg  also has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr. Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

Biochemist Otto Heinrich Warburg, one of the twentieth century’s leading cell     biologists,  discovered  that  the root cause of cancer  is  too  much  acidity  in  the body, meaning that the pH,  potential hydrogen,  in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which constitutes an “acidic” state.  Warburg investigated the metabolism of tumours and the respiration of cells and discovered that cancer cells maintain and thrive in a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2. He firmly believed that there was  a direct relationship between pH  and oxygen.  Higher pH,  which is Alkaline,  means higher concentration of oxygen molecules,  while lower pH,  which is acidic,  means lower concentrations of oxygen …. the same oxygen  that  is  needed  to  maintain  healthy  cells.
In 1931 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for this important discovery.  Doctor Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for cell physiology at Berlin. He investigated the metabolism of tumours and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells. Below are some direct quotes by Dr. Warburg during medical lectures where he was the keynote speaker:

“Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”

In his work The Metabolism of Tumours Warburg demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Lack of oxygen  and  acidosis are two sides of the same coin:  where you have one,  you  have the other.” “All normal cells  have an absolute requirement for oxygen,  cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”

Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr. Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels    of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

The Only Way to Defeat Cancer?

The solution is very simple to understand. High school education is enough to understand. You just need common sense and logical think to understand that this is the only way we can beat cancer and save life.

All cells  of  our body need energy to survive.  There  are  two major energy processes, respiration and fermentation.  Most  cells  in  our  body  also  have  the  abilities  of  both fermentation and respiration. Glucose is major universal fuel of our body. In respiration, with oxygen participation, glucose is converted to carbon dioxide and water. In fermentation, without oxygen participation, glucose is converted to lactate.

What is the difference between normal cell and cancer cell? (Heiden, et al. Understanding the Warburg Effect: The Metabolic Requirements of Cell Proliferation. Science 324, 1029 (2009))

Since 1920’s, eighty years ago, people have known that normal cells (differentiated cells) mainly depend on respiration, while cancer cells mainly depend on fermentation. Not all cells mainly depending on fermentation divide. But all cells mainly depending on respiration do not divide.

There are many and various reasons of cancer, genes, pathways, etc. The most profound, obvious, and significant difference is that differentiated cells (normal cells) mainly depend on respiration;  while cancer cells  mainly depend on fermentation.  Dr. Otto Warburg first reported this in 1920’s. Not all cells, mainly powered by fermentation, divide.  All cells are, mainly powered by respiration, do not divide. Increasing cancer cell respiration will stop cancer cell dividing.

How to increase cell respiration?

Increasing mitochondria respiration.  In  human  cell,  respiration  is  in  mitochondria. Mitochondria respiration is suppressed when cells divide  (cancer cell and other dividing cells). Cell division could be the reason of mitochondria suppression. Cells have adapt this since the beginning of the cell.

Increasing non-mitochondria respiration. Aerobic bacteria without mitochondria have non-mitochondria respiration ability. Cancer cell has high oxidative stress, which has advantage to use non-mitochondrial respiration. Giving proper substances of respiration to cancer cell, cancer cell will be destroyed.

What does cancer like? Because cancer mainly depends on fermentation, cancer cells     take more sugar than normal cell. Cancer likes sugar. PET Scan is based on this. What    will happen if we give cancer a sugar, cancer has to use it for respiration? The sugar is erythrose. Erythrose beats cancer.

Cell Culture with Erythrose
Cancer cell lines (lung, brain, breast, etc.) die with ~4mM (500mg/L) erythrose in 24 hrs.
For normal cell lines viability,  up  to  30mM erythrose,  it  has  similar  result  as  glucose. Human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) and Human Dermal Fibroblasts (HDF) have been tested.

Erythrose is very similar to glucose for our cells, but kills cancer. Energy is essential for    all cells in our body.  Technology can deliver the 4mM erythrose  to anywhere in our body. Cancer will be destroyed.  The side effects  could be as short-term diabetes,  manageable and reversible.
Cancer cells die with enough erythrose, the concentration is well below similar small molecules our body can tolerate. Using Erythrose treat cancer is doable, and will be workable.
Cancer, undifferentiated dividing cells, lack of respiration by complex genetic and biochemical reasons. Cancer cells have to use Erythrose for respiration to differentiate, and die. Erythrose beats cancer.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd-ca2YX86M

Cortisol was demonstrated to be a muscle-catabolic factor inducing rapid release of   amino acids from muscle.  Glucocorticoids stimulate overall lipolysis at the whole-body level,  however,  glucocorticoids  may  specifically  inhibit  abdominal  lipolysis  because chronic hypercortisolemia secondary to Cushing’s syndrome is characterized by distinct abdominal obesity. Recent data point toward cortisol-induced increase of visceral fat on the basis of visceral  11β-hydroxysteroid dehydro … genase  type 1 availability.  Thereby, cortisol would support lipolysis and re-allocation of lipids to visceral stores  elsewhere.

Cortisol is an important stimulator of glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis in the liver. Cortisol inhibits bone formation by blocking osteoblasts , decreasing osteocalcin levels,  and interfering with several other pathways. Cortisol supports insulin resistance so that energy-rich substrates cannot be taken up into muscle, liver, and fat tissue.

In conclusion, cortisol via many independent pathways belongs to the network of energy-expenditure hormones, an increase of which leads to rapid allocation of energy-rich fuels to the immune system. However, a program with long-term elevation of cortisol is not positively selected, because of the danger of immunosuppression.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3978663/

Stress produces a variety of cellular changes, including the production of  the           “shock proteins.”  These proteins can make up 20%  of  the cell’s total protein content.         In themselves, the shock proteins are immunosuppressive.  They can be recognized by    the immune system as antigens, and so are a factor in the appearance of “autoimmune” antibodies.

The auto-antibodies themselves are often blamed for the diseases they are sometimes associated with, however,  since they can be present (for example, following removal of  the spleen) in people who have no symptoms, their function is probably to facilitate the  removal of tissues which are defective for some other reason.  The shock proteins could   be one  of  the  signals  that activate the immune system to remove damaged tissue, and they might be involved  in  the removal of senescent cells,  though ….  I don’t think any experiments have been done to test this idea.

Besides activating the cells to produce massive amounts of the shock proteins, stress       can also activate the so-called hormone receptors, such as estrogen receptors, even in the absence of the hormones.  Stress also activates the endonucleases, which cut sections out of the DNA molecules,   activates mobile genetic elements,  producing geneticin stability. Like cortisol and estrogen, stress itself activates integrated retroviruses. The “endogenous retroviruses” make up nearly 10% of the human genome, and many of them locate themselves in regulatory sites in the chromosomes.
Since stress lowers the discriminatory ability of the immune system, and stimulates         the expression of retroviruses,  also the antibodies sometimes seen in association with immunodeficiency may be similar to the various autoantibodies that are also produced     by stress.

Here’s our list of the Greatest ways to decrease stress right now.
1. Try progressive relaxation.  All the way from fingers to toes—tense and then release    each muscle group in the body (lower arm, upper arm, chest, back and abdominals, etc.). Once the body is relaxed, the mind will be soon to follow.
2. Try some light yoga. The combination of deep breathing techniques and poses makes this activity work to reduce stress.
3. Meditate. The “mental silence” that goes along with meditation may have positive effects on stress (especially work-related stress)
4. Breathe deep. Taking a deep breath has been shown to lower cortisol levels, which can help reduce stress and anxiety . Studies suggest deep breathing can also cause a temporary drop in blood pressure
5. Spark some scents. Studies suggest aromatherapy can be a good way to relieve stress. Certain aromas (like lavender) have been consistently shown to reduce stress levels .
6. Listen to music. Research points to multiple ways in which music can help relieve stress, from triggering biochemical stress reducers to assisting in treating stress associated with medical procedures.
7. Laugh it off. Laughter can reduce the physical effects of stress (like fatigue) on the body .
8. Drink tea. One study found that drinking black tea leads to lower post-stress cortisol levels and greater feelings of relaxation .
9. Exercise. That post-exercise endorphin rush is one way to sharply cut stress.
10. Try guided visualization. Visualizing a calm or peaceful scene may help reduce stress and ease anxiety .
11. Join a religious community. Surveys have shown a major underlying reason people practice religion is for stress relief. One study even found that college students who practiced a religion were less stressed than their non-religious counterparts. And other research suggests religious people are less likely to experience stress-related mental illness.
12. Chew gum. Studies suggest the act of chewing gum can reduce cortisol levels,       helping to alleviate stress .
13. Get a massage. Getting a good ol’ rub down may do more than alleviate physical       pain. Studies suggest massage may also be beneficial for fighting stress. It may also        help improve body image .
14. Try self-hypnosis. Research suggests hypnosis can help reduce anxiety.                       Plus, it’s a great self-mediated technique for stress-relief.                                                                                                                                                          15. Talk About sex, Baby. Studies have shown sex can actually decrease the physical symptoms of stress, like lowering blood pressure.
16. Take a nap. Napping has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, which aids in stress relief .
17. Hug it out. Hugging may actually reduce blood pressure and stress levels in adults.
18. Hang with your pet. Or, as we’ve put it before, just get a dog. Dog owners have been shown to be less stressed out—most likely thanks to having a buddy to cuddle .
19. Do an art project. Art therapy can potentially reduce stress-related behavior and symptoms .
20. Write it out. Keeping a journal may be one way to effectively relieve stress-related symptoms due to its meditative and reflective effects. A gratitude journal can really help us put things in perspective, so pick a time every day to write down a few things that make you happy.
21. Take a walk. A quiet, meditative stroll can do wonders for stress relief, especially when we step outdoors. Try not to rush, and take whatever pace feels most natural.
22. Kiss someone! Research suggests kissing releases chemicals that ease hormones associated with stress, like cortisol. Forming positive relationships is also a key way to help reduce stress and anxiety.
23. Don’t write a list of the top 23 ways to reduce stress!

The thyroid gland plays an important part in the endocrine system. The thyroid gland provides the body with a way of regulating its internal “furnace,” as well as ways of speeding up or slowing down basic metabolism. In our practice, we do not stop after getting proper blood tests for thyroid hormones. We also test other organs, glands, and hormones that affect the thyroid. This is important for many of my patients who complain about a wide variety of problems such as thinn…ing hair, constipation, cold hands, cold feet, irritability, anxiety or depression, fatigue, infertility, exhaustion, moodiness, brain fog, weight loss or weight gain, and infertility or who have an autoimmune condition.

The scope of the thyroid’s importance in the body is huge. By doing proper blood testing on the thyroid gland and other body system relating to thyroid system, you will get to the actual cause of your condition. We don’t just guess about our clients’ health. We take a comprehensive history, perform a physical exam, and run the necessary diagnostic testing in order to determine the client’s individual chemistry and the impact of their chemistry on their thyroid condition. Only then can we direct them to the proper healthy lifestyle changes, dietary changes, nutritional support, and herbal support that will help balance their thyroid chemistry and make them feel better.

We want you to think about about your own situation, about the times the doctor told you your lab results were not “bad enough to treat” or your TSH was normal even when your thyroid symptoms made you feel bad. We want to give you an alternative to the “watch-and-wait” approach conventional medicine often uses. We believe our “information-rich” approach could send you on an incredible journey to health.

Accumulating evidence shows that chronic inflammation can promote all stages of tumorigenesis, including DNA damage, limitless replication, apoptosis evasion, sustained angiogenesis, self-sufficiency in growth signaling, insensitivity to anti-growth signaling, and tissue invasion/metastasis. Chronic inflammation is triggered by environmental (extrinsic) factors (eg, infection, tobacco, asbestos) and host mutations (intrinsic) factors (eg, Ras, Myc, p53).
Extensive investigati…ons over the past decade have uncovered many of the important mechanistic pathways underlying cancer-related inflammation.
However, the precise molecular mechanisms involved and the interconnecting crosstalk between pathways remain incompletely understood. We review the evidence implicating a strong association between chronic inflammation and cancer, with an emphasis on colorectal and lung cancer.
We summarize the current knowledge of the important molecular and cellular pathways linking chronic inflammation to tumorigenesis.
Specifically, we focus on the role of the mitochondria in coordinating life- and death-signaling pathways crucial in cancer-related inflammation. Activation of Ras, Myc, and p53 cause mitochondrial dysfunction, resulting in mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and downstream signaling (eg, NFkappaB, STAT3, etc.) that promote inflammation-associated cancer.
A recent murine transgenic study established that mitochondrial metabolism and ROS production are necessary for K-Ras-induced tumorigenicity. Collectively, inflammation-associated cancers resulting from signaling pathways coordinated at the mitochondrial level are being identified that may prove useful for developing innovative strategies for both cancer prevention and cancer treatment.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHx7O7gt394           http://www.cancerquest.org/chronic-inflammation.html

Emerging evidence indicates that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease involving disturbances in energy production through respiration and fermentation. Cancer is suppressed following transfer of the nucleus from the tumor cell to cytoplasm of normal cells containing normal mitochondria.

These findings indicate that nuclear genetic abnormalities cannot be responsible for cancer despite commonly held beliefs in the cancer field. The genomic instability observed in tumor cel…ls and all other recognized hallmarks of cancer are considered downstream epiphenomena of the initial disturbance of cellular energy metabolism.

The disturbances in tumor cell energy metabolism can be linked to abnormalities in        the structure and function of the mitochondria. Cancer growth and progression can be managed following a whole – body transition from fermentable metabolites,  primarily glucose and glutamine, to respiratory metabolites, primarily ketone bodies.

This transition will reduce tumor vascularity and inflammation while enhancing tumor  cell death. A novel “press-pulse” therapeutic strategy is in development for the non-toxic metabolic management of cancer. Malignant brain cancer in preclinical models and humans will be used to illustrate general concepts.

As each individual is a unique metabolic entity, personalization of metabolic therapy as     a broadbased cancer treatment strategy will require fine-tuning to match the therapy to  an individual’s unique physiology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEE-oU8_NSU

You’re Standing at a Crossroads

  Image result for sisterly love

You have to choose …. you know it has to be the right place  for cancer treatment and    you  are afraid of  choosing wrong.  You have done your research  and  should  know the therapies and the success of the treatments and that each patient will respond differently based on the strength of  their own immune system.  Doctors do tell you regardless if you chose chemo or not that it is not a guarantee, (You know this already before you start the IV drip of  alternative medicine or chemotherapy.  You are extremely hopeful and should be regardless of  the choice that you made.  Have hope.  You also know that there is no guarantee. Some cancer patients are stronger than others and for some the battle will be longer and tougher.This is the TRUTH. Please read Cancer Success Rate- What Is The Truth http://healmeright.com/successrate/  

I still get letters from desperate individuals fighting cancer. They write to tell me they     are inspired and happy I beat stage 4 cancer without chemotherapy. Some people are asking me to recommend other hospitals besides the one I went to that saved my life.
CMN Hospital helped save my life, we are a team! I am also  appropriately and forever grateful to have chosen the healthier way. To know what I chose please visit www.shannonsstory.com. Twice this week (and often other times people will ask me           to recommend a place in the US or a to give them a list of other good cancer clinics in Mexico.
 This does shock me only because I wonder if they were cancer free 4 years and someone asked them the same question how eager would they be to suggest a different hospital then the place that succeeded in treating their own cancer. Not to mention, I am not the expert on hospitals and would they feel comfortable recommending a place that they were never treated at or the cost or the treatments and doctors that would be attending to them daily. I cannot recommend nor would I. People ask about where I went and I will gladly share EVERYTHING I KNOW, for the rest of my life about that hospital  💕
This is your life we’re talking about, do not try to put it in “my hands” or anyone else’s      recommendation. Some people want to go where I went as a last ditch effort like I did even after chemo and trial drugs (sometimes for years of that on and off) with a prognosis from their doctor of 4 weeks, 6 months, I’ve heard it all just like I was told 3 months to a year left to live. I did not do chemo at all.
I went to a Catholic hospital in San Luis Sonora Mexico family owned 30 years! Dr. Payan did not give up on me however he did not give me “false hope” and make promises. He did give me the proper amount of encouragement by saying he would do the BEST he could and he certainly did do just that along with his entire medical team.
We are not clones, so do not compare yourself with others. You have a chance and need    to believe you have a chance, his is part of reaching our success! Faith! Just because my life was saved 4 years ago or someone elses, somewhere else, does not mean you are guaranteed the same success or not able to succeed! No one is God or we would have the answer to cancer and have 100% success somewhere!
What is your lifestyle, diet, emotional situation at home, weight, age and your  immune system has been like since you were a child?  Do you have strong faith? Are you a pessimist or optimist? Do you do additional things like prayer or meditation? What treatments have you done until now? Were they toxic? Do you listen to healing music, take peaceful walks, surround yourself with tranquility? Do you write positive messages on your water bottles, IV Bags and ceiling ::)
A doctor is only part of your TEAM to try and save your life. NOT GOD!
Thank you CMN Hospital  and Dr.  Payan for not turning me away, for your consistent compassion, professionalism and connection long after a patient leaves.  All doctors have to deal with death,  blame because of cancer grief  and then they get patients like me to work together with them (great success!) Be reasonable folks and research and take full accountability in your decision.  www.cmnact.com
CMN Hospital was MY CHOICE I do not recommend, I trust them and I would go again.
You never know the difference you can make …to those closest to you… Shannon Knight went through stage 4 breast cancer that spread to her bones,  lymph nodes and lungs…   She did alternative therapy and no chemo… And She has been cancer-free for 5 years…  Her identical twin sister,  Jessie DiConti,  also was diagnosed with breast cancer…  she   just found out on August 3rd that she is now cancer-free after going through the same treatment recommended by her sister… We all can support each other in our community when we have experience at the crossroad…

God bless all of you on the most difficult decision ever, choosing where to go!

Sis…Look at this!
•*¨*•.¸¸ •*¨*•.¸¸
You dedicated this song to me when I got cancer in 2006, then in 2015 I dedicated it  “right back!” to you when you got cancer! Well baby, here we are, blessed and given so much grace to be alive and cancer free!  I love you! 💕  We did it!  I told you,  that you  were as strong as me! “Oh…. But for the Grace of God we are blessed”
Tough Enough!

Eyes 0f FAITH

Have you seen a miracle today… so why the doom and gloom. They happen all around      us and you just have to recondition yourself to see the good  and  not the evil around us. Open you eyes to the sunrise, sunsets and the rebirth of a new day. Checkout a new born  in a mothers stroller and the honey bee making honey ~ all of GODs creation is alive and well.
 Times like these are happenings since the beginning of time.  Don’t fret it good has      always overcome evil is what Father Rick stated, GOD will prevail.  Early Christians    were  persecuted  for their faith  at the hands of a few evil Jews from whose religion Christianity arose and the Roman Empire which controlled much of the land across which early Christianity was distributed. GOD always prevailed GOOD over Evil.    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Christians
   The  persecution  of  Christians  by  Christians  has been going on for centuries as well.   IS human nature to not accept those that have different beliefs and don’t live in the same town. People tend to group together as one… men with men versus …women with women and day shift versus night shift for their own security.   When you are like them you will see Life as dark.

Find Out Which Haircut Is Best for You

When YOU Have Happiness IT SHOWS  🙂
   It is Maslow’s Theory of Hierarchical Needs  people look for security and the need to be in a group amongst friends. When your depth of of  perception and thinking supersedes …you will see LIFE with a joyful heart.  Miracles happen as GOD talks to you … through the voice of joyful hearts. What one must remember that the key to happiness … lies within a Happy Heart. ♡☆ One must maintain a “delicate balance” much like Good fat versus bad fat (the omega 3s are anti inflammatory &  omega 6s pro inflammatory). So to find true happiness and good health. one must maintain a balance….  Hormonal, Enzymatic, Vitamin & Mineral balance with good stomach flora!!!  💕💕💕
———————————————————————————————————————————-

  Disease is any failure of normal physiological function that leads to various negative symptoms in the body. While disease is all to  often a result of infection or injury, most     diseases involve the disruption of normal homeostasis.  Positive and negative feedback    are important for normal physiological function,  and  anything that prevents feedback from working could lead to disease and if the mechanisms of disruption become strong enough.

Aging is a general example of  disease as a result homeostatic imbalance. As an organism ages,  problems with homeostasis  gradually results  in an unstable internal environment that increases the risk for illness  and  is  responsible  for  the physical changes associated with aging. Besides illness, aging can cause death.

The human body is a finely tuned mechanism that relies on chemical components to maintain a constant state of balance. This state of being in balance is called homeostasis.  If one or more of these chemicals fall out of balance from either an increase or a decrease in their levels,  this may cause the systems  of  the body to work less efficiently.  Chemical imbalances can occur for a number of reasons and may affect the body in a variety of ways.

Serotonin

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter found in the brain. At normal levels a person will experience a variety of emotions and function efficiently. When serotonin levels begin to drop due to chemical changes in the body, or drug interactions and disease, a person’s personality may begin to change. Depression and bipolar disorder may occur. Decreased serotonin levels can lead to chronic fatigue,  and sleep disorders and changes in appetite, according to Merck.

Insulin

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that opens up microscopic pathways      and allows glucose to enter the cells. At normal levels, enough insulin is produced and used by the body to allow adequate glucose to be absorbed by the cells for energy.               If levels begin to drop, diabetes may be the result.

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system backfires and destroys cells in    the pancreas that produce insulin. According to the Mayo Clinic, this can result in little    or no insulin, allowing glucose to build up in the bloodstream.

Type 2 diabetes is the result of cells resisting the insulin that is produced. The cells do     not allow insulin  to  open  the pathways to let glucose in.  The pancreas produces more insulin due to the rising levels of glucose in the blood, but the cells are not receptive and glucose levels continue to rise.

Pituitary Hormone Imbalances

The pituitary gland is a small gland located at the base of the brain. It produces    hormones that regulate blood pressure, growth and some aspects of the reproductive system. In rare cases,  hypopituitarism occurs,  which is the result of decreased levels           of pituitary hormones. This can cause disruptions in normal body function like blood pressure and heart rate.

According  to  the  Mayo Clinic,  the over-production of pituitary hormones results in a disorder known as acromegaly.  This can result  in  production  of  abnormal amounts of growth hormone.  Acromegaly  is  characterized  by  certain areas  of  the  body becoming larger than normal  and  out  of  proportion  with the rest of the body.  This excess growth usually appears in the hands, feet and face. Acromegaly usually occurs in middle age after most growth has normally stopped. If an abundance of growth hormone is present during adolescence, gigantism may result.

Metabolic Imbalances

A person’s metabolism sets the stage for his weight, appetite and energy levels. An underactive thyroid that produces little thyroid hormone can cause heart disease, fatigue and obesity, according to the Mayo Clinic. A thyroid that produces too much hormone can make it difficult for a person to maintain a healthy weight.

Disorders that cause the adrenal glands to produce too much cortisol can cause a person  to gain weight in the abdominal area of the body. This is called Cushing’s syndrome. Other disorders cause the body to produce lower than normal levels of cortisol.  Cortisol helps to maintain blood pressure, blood glucose levels and energy levels.

Reproductive System Imbalances

Chemical imbalances in the reproductive system can cause infertility and low sex drive     in both men and women. Low levels of estrogen and testosterone can affect sexual performance and cause fertility to be questioned.

High levels of testosterone in men can cause aggression and an overabundance of muscle mass. In women, high levels of testosterone can cause male pattern baldness and excessive hair growth on the face and chest. It can also cause the voice to deepen and become more masculine.

Low levels of estrogen in women can affect menstrual periods as well as the woman’s ability to get pregnant and carry the child to term. Excessive amounts of estrogen are thought to cause breast and other types of cancer in women, according to Merck.

Prevention and treatment of cancers like breast and prostate can be done with minerals such as iodine, selenium, magnesium, zinc and maganese. Alternative treatment is what is best and what actually works in the cancer game.  Chemotherapy and radiation break the body down  and  what is needed  to  relieve  ourselves  from cancer  is  having a strong body.  Strong bodies and minds  are the foundation of good health.  All traditional treatments from the medical community cause a worse physical stat…e  in the body and  are not productive at providing a healthy mind. A good emotional state is important to really stopping cancer.

Prayer, regular and consistent are vitally important as well. Simple prayers like, God please help me to do this thing, can give the person that extra kick that sends them into real healing. Minerals will also help the body to fend off other illness and disease. I would not believe  any  source  that tells us that vitamins or minerals increase the risk of cancer. This is propaganda which is used to frighten us. If we believe it we are the ‘blind following the blind”. The authorities and specialists do not have the first idea of what it takes to naturally rid the body of excess cancer cells.

One needs to remember that the body can handle a certain amount of cancer cells. It is   the overload that is the problem. It is the imbalance that will occur if the body is deficent in minerals that the problem will begin. The body always defends itself against cancer cells if it has the minerals which are the ‘immune system’. Minerals plus people = no cancer. This is an equation that always works. It can not help but work.

As an example I use the mineral iodine from a regular drug store source, but I use it most regularly. And magnesium from Epsom Salts. That is something I use every day, only missing a day here or there. If calcium is used it must be a reputable source and someone better know what they are talking about if one uses calcium. I don’t touch it.                     ~~~ Nancy Gurish ~

When a cancer patient does chemotherapy it brings on…

The Tumor lysis syndrome: When cancer cells are killed by therapy, they may spill their inner (intracellular) contents, which accumulate in the body faster than can be eliminated. These excess intracellular contents cause the metabolic and electrolyte disturbances that result in tumor lysis syndrome (TLS). TLS can result in life-threatening complications if not managed appropriately. If TLS is untreated, its progression may cause acute kidney failure, cardiac arrhythmias, seizure…s, loss of muscle control or death.

Some patients with TLS may have initial symptoms including:

Nausea and vomiting

Joint discomfort

Shortness of breath

Irregular heartbeat

Lethargy

Cloudy urine

When one does natural protocols and a detox it’s the Herxheimer reaction. It is always about the balance   👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

The Herxheimer Reaction … What is it?

This reaction occurs when the body tries to eliminate toxins at a faster rate than they      can be properly disposed of. The more toxic one’s bodily systems are, the more severe the detoxification, or healing crisis.  It is characterized by a temporary increase in symptoms during the cleansing or detox process which may be mild or severe.  You  may  feel  worse and therefore conclude that the treatment is not working. But these reactions are instead signs that the treatment is working and that your body is going through the process of cleaning itself of impurities, toxins and imbalances.

Such reactions are temporary and can occur immediately — or within several days, or    even several weeks, of a detox.  Symptoms usually pass within 1-3 days, however, on rare occasions can last several weeks.  If you are suffering from a major illness,  the symptoms you experience during the healing crisis may be identical to the disease itself.  Sometimes discomfort during the healing crisis is of greater intensity than when you were developing the chronic disease.

This may explain why there may be a brief flare-up in one’s condition. Often the crisis will come after you feel your very best. Also Most people feel somewhat ill  during the first few days of a cleanse.  Because it is at this point …. that your body dumps toxins into the blood stream for elimination.  With a more serious condition  there may be many small crises to go through before the final one is possible.  In any case,  a cleansing  & purifying process is underway, and stored wastes are in a free-flowing state.

Cause:
The healing crisis is the result of every body-system, in concert, working to eliminate  waste products through all elimination channels and set the stage for regeneration. The end result: old tissues are replaced with new. When any treatment or cleansing program causes a large scale die-off of bacteria, a significant amount of endotoxins (toxins within the bacteria itself) are released into the body.

The more bacteria present, and the stronger their endotoxins, the stronger the cleansing reaction.  When any treatment  or  detox  causes  the  organs of the body (particularly the liver,  which is a storehouse  of  drug  and  poison residues) to release their stored poisons and toxins, a cleansing reaction may occur.  Any program,  such  as  fasting,  which causes a rapid breakdown  of  the fat cells  (which are a storehouse for toxins), can cause a healing crisis as toxins previously lodged in the fat cells are released into the blood stream.

Symptoms:
The healing crisis  will usually bring  about past conditions in whatever order the body        is capable of handling at that time. People often forget the diseases or injuries they have    had in the past, but are usually reminded during the crisis.  There are a wide variety of reactions that may manifest during a healing crisis, the most common are:

Increased joint or muscle pain

Diarrhea
Extreme fatigue and/or its opposite, restlessness
Cramps
Headache (believed to be caused by buildup of toxins in the blood)
Aches, Pains
Arthritic flair up
Insomnia
Nausea
Sinus congestion
Fever (usually low grade) and/or chills
Frequent urination and/or urinary tract discharges
Drop in blood pressure
Skin eruptions, including: boils, hives, and rashes.
Cold or flu-like symptoms
Strong emotions: anger, despair, sadness, fear, etc.
Suppressed memories arise
Anxiety
Mood swings
New phobias develop

Easing Your Way Through the Healing Crisis:
Drink plenty of fresh water (especially water), also juices, and herbal teas to flush the body of toxins. Some professionals recommend distilled water as the best. And drink from 2 to 4 quarts (liters) per day.  This will help flush the toxins  out of your system  and speed along the detoxification.

If you are feeling fatigued, or sleepy, your body is talking to you, and telling you to rest.    Be kind to yourself, and get the rest that you need.

Symptoms frequently disappear immediately after a good bowel movement,                       use an enema to provide relief.

For other symptoms, meditation, EFT, acupuncture or a good massage might be        helpful to speed up the healing process, and reduce the discomfort.

And, on rare occasions, a reduction of the dosage or temporary cessation may be required.

Important: Always ensure your health by having a thorough medical check up: don’t assume that if you have any of the above symptoms that you are in a healing crisis: you may not be in a healing process, you may have a medical health problem.
