Satisfied In Belief

  According to The FreeDictionary.com, wound healing defined as “restoration      of  integrity to injured tissues by replacement of  dead tissue with viable tissue.”  We   can look at emotional healing  as a process  in which a person  is restored to integrity (wholeness) by  first removing the dead stuff  (sins — hatred,  bitterness,  resentment, unforgiveness, blaming others, unresolved/prolonged grief, sadness, unruly passions and  other  deadly heart issues)  with  viable tissue – love,  joy,  peace,  patience,  and other Fruits of the Spirit.   HOW TO  RECOVER FROM A CANCER DIAGNOSIS?

     Deep physical wounds that are filled with large amounts of dead cells, blood clots   and other debris must be cleansed in order for healing to take place.This can be painful because with much chronic inflammation,  soreness  and tenderness with deep wounds.  Foreign bodies add to discomfort and can also delay the healing process. For healing of emotional and spiritual wounds to take place,  the  foreign  bodies of  this guilt,  shame, thinking God is mad at you, anger towards God, self and others must be cleaned away.  All of these things will delay the processEmotional Freedom helps you to overcome!!

From a spiritual standpoint, what happens to people when they endure deep wounds without cleaning them out?  Examples  of  deep wounds would be  1)  Prolonged Exposure  to negative, crippling words and abuse as a child; 2) Sexual Immorality; 3) Satanic Attack; 4) Rejection/Abandonment by a Spouse or Parent; 4) Bitterness & Unforgiveness to other 5) Divorce;  6) Death of Loved One and 7) Physical and/or Sexual Abuse.   When a person has a physical wound…. it is very painful to clean out dead tissue, however, it is extremely necessary in order to prevent infection. In a natural approach, the wound healing process must be carefully assessed and monitored.

Optimal  healing  takes  place  when  the  patient  is  in  a  good state nutritionally  and          has adequate body reserves and resources for tissue regeneration or cell repair. Every nutrient and health habit plays a role in healing the body.  Oxygen is needed for the blood supply to the wound. Exercise is needed for adequate circulation.  Positioning of the body is important in order to avoid prolonged pressure on the wounded area. Thereby, the area of the wound must be temporarily immobilized to prevent mechanical injury from direct blows and friction. The patient must receive adequate rest.

To heal in a healthy way, we must receive adequate spiritual nutrition. If  we were spiritually malnourished or undeveloped prior to becoming wounded, then we  will  not  have enough emotional  or  spiritual reserves to heal correctly and  thus  the process will be delayed.  Once wounded,  it is more difficult to build up spiritual capacity.  Spiritual nutrition  is derived directly from the Word of God  by  studying,  listening,  praying, praising and worship.  The Spirit of the Lord is our oxygen.  He is our Breath of Life (Genesis 2: 6-7; John 20: 21-22), the Bread of Life (John 6:35) and He is LIFE Itself (John 14:6).  Speaking, praying and renewing our minds is our spiritual exercise which keeps the blood flowing.

When we are wounded, we deliberately position ourselves for optimal healing by being connected to the local body of Christ.  We cannot heal alone and isolated or else we will be prone to re-injure ourselves because we are unprotected.  “And if one prevails against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken”. (Eccl 4:12) We are to not  “forsake our own assembling together,  as is the habit of some, but to encouraging one another” (Heb 10:25).  Connection with other believers is protection.  We have to learn to open up trust….  We also must receive adequate rest.  Jesus said,  “Come unto me all that are weary and heavy laden  and  I will give you rest” (Matt 11:28).  We have the promise of  a special rest for the people of God  and we are to strive to enter that rest (Heb 4:11)  if we expect the wound to heal correctly.

Affordable Health Care: One must alleviate the stress of not knowing. One must limit   the cost  that causing them undo stress.  Understanding proper healing  requires a source  of nutrients  to create healthy cells.  The omega’s,  antioxidants and protein does just this. While maintaining gut flora is key and homemade probiotics making it affordable.  How    to make (almost sugar-free) fermented kombucha?

Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman  discusses some of the top supplements a person should consider  taking  to  manage their good health.  She,  not only,  mentions a number of common supplements, but also, some of the considerations when buying them. While some studies mention coconut oil reduces the side effects of chemotherapy.  A cancer patient should never seek medical treatment without proper supplements to improve quality of life issues.

While cancer prevention and nutrition is still key to optimum health. With hydration    with natural salts  (not sodium)  might be first and foremost,  diet and exercise  is a close second to assurance of longevity. Creating a diet and detox program after a diagnosis can be rather complicated,  complex,  confusing and frustrating.  Solitarius.org  is designed to help you explore your options to be researched. When you research for yourself it creates  a comfortable feeling.

With  Youtube  having many research avenues: for instance cancer survivors telling             of their experience.  A Famous case:  is Dr. Charles Major explaining his amazing and incredible experience of  how he overcame Bone Marrow Cancer.  When  we  hear  that supplementation can cut your breast cancer risk in half. While pineapple enzymes kills cancer without killing you. We soon realize the importance of enzyme therapy and how     it helps to absorb nutrients into your body during treatment.

Also  through  Solitarius.org  we learn important facts every cancer patient should know.  When a person that has cancer,  generally speaking  most times their body is in an acidic state that creates a breeding ground for cancer to grow. Realizing then proper pH balance,  along with a strong immune system  to help fight the cancer off is vital for their survival.  Cancer patients have many concerns about what is right for their cure?   Are you taking a good form of B12? Adeno B12 has Adenosylcobalamin, the mitochondrial form of vitamin B12.  With B12 being required for proper red blood cell formation,  neurological function, DNA synthesis, cardio support & more. http://bit.ly/1fWlQy0

Rather  it  be  the Budwig  Cottage Cheese Dilemna  of  “No Dairy” for cancer patients conflict. Thereby, making them seek options; Nancys Organic Low Fat Organic or Daisy Brand Natural Cottage Cheese.  Dr. Axe has  an interesting video.  Tamara St. John tells    of her survival with the Budwig Protocol, raw food and juicing, enzyme therapy, apricot kernels and proper detoxification.  Others suggest  Intravenous VitaminC or Liposomal Vitamin C (when  your  not  doing  Budwig Protocol.) Medicinal Mushrooms  and  their equilavent supplement forms. I am told produce result!  While Milk Thistle (CanGest),  and the Liver is key to Healing Essiac Tea,  Ginkgold Max  and  Selenium Supplements warranting consideration!!

The Healing Power of Chlorophyll

As many of us know the power of sunshine on our body and mind, not many are aware of sunlight’s liquefied form – chlorophyll….
Chlorophyll is liquefied sun energy and by consuming as much chlorophyll as possible will basically bathe our inner organs in sunshine.
No life is possible without chlorophyll, the blood of plants – just as hemoglobin is the blood of the body – the difference between the two molecules being that chlorophyll contains magnesium, while hemoglobin contains iron. Therefore, chlorophyll through a plant based diet will be high in magnesium.
Since ancient times chlorophyll has served as a miraculous healer, carrying a significant amount of oxygen with it and therefore playing a critical role in supporting our aerobic (good) bacteria. The more we consume, the better our intestinal flora and overall health will be. Chlorophyll has been proven helpful in preventing and healing many forms of cancer and atherosclerosis, whilst adequate scientific research has found that there are hardly any illnesses that could not be helped by chlorophyll.
Some of the many healing properties of this amazing substance are:
• Chlorophyll Promote formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells
• Building a high blood count
• Helping to prevent cancer
• Providing iron to organs
• Making the body more alkaline
• Cleaning and deodorizing bowels
• Helping the purify the liver
• Eliminating bad breath
• Relieving sore throat
• Improving varicose veins
• Reducing pain caused by inflammation
• Improving vision
• Fights infections.
Greens are the only living thing in the world that can transform sunshine into food that all living creatures can consume – there would be no life on our planet without greens – as the life purpose of all greens is to produce chlorophyll.
With high oxygen content in chlorophyll and a high mineral content in green plants, greens are the most alkalizing food that exists on the planet – heavy in alkaline minerals. By including greens in our diet we can keep our body alkaline and health.

Miracle Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe Vera has many Benefits and Promotes Health and Longevity

When I say aloe vera is the most impressive medicinal herb invented by nature, I don’t make that statement lightly. Of all the herbs I’ve ever studied — aloe vera is the most impressive herb of them all.  (Garlic would be a close second.)  There is nothing on this planet that offers the amazing variety of healing benefits granted by aloe vera.  In a single plant, aloe vera offers potent, natural medicine that:

• Halts the growth of cancer tumors.
• Lowers high cholesterol.
• Repairs “sludge blood” and reverses “sticky blood”.
• Boosts the oxygenation of your blood.
• Eases inflammation and soothes arthritis pain.
• Protects the body from oxidative stress.
• Prevents kidney stones and protects the body from oxalates in coffee and tea.
• Alkalizes the body, helping to balance overly acidic dietary habits.
• Cures ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s disease and other digestive disorders.
• Reduces high blood pressure natural, by treating the cause, not just the symptoms.
• Nourishes the body with minerals, vitamins, enzymes and glyconutrients.
• Accelerates healing from physical burns and radiation burns.
• Replaces dozens of first aid products, makes bandages and antibacterial sprays obsolete.
• Halts colon cancer, heals the intestines and lubricates the digestive tract.
• Ends constipation.
• Stabilizes blood sugar and reduces triglycerides in diabetics.
• Prevents and treats candida infections.
• Protects the kidneys from disease.
• Functions as nature’s own “sports drink” for electrolyte balance, making common sports drinks obsolete.
• Boosts cardiovascular performance and physical endurance.
• Speeds recovery from injury or physical exertion.
• Hydrates the skin, accelerates skin repair.

Truly, there is nothing else that compares to the medicinal potential of aloe vera. And yet most people only know about the topical applications of aloe vera gel. They think it’s only good for sunburns. In reality, aloe vera is useful for both external and internal use. In this article,

Somebody Caused A Stir

  When  Catherine Colvin  entered into the Solitarius.org  Facebook group page she did in a scurry  and received 1140 +  members attention.  She also provided information to check: how bodily  functions generate deficiencies   of vitamin and minerals. Which could possibly be the “root cause of cancer through Orthomolecular Nutrition.”

    Her opinion gave me the incentive to research deeper into her insight of the dreadful disease we all know as cancer. When I re-invited her back into the group after receiving her side of the story. It brought me back to a book that I read:  The Life You Want, Get Motivated, Lose Weight and Be Happy which I read to help me lose weight because of the weight gain experienced from inactivity researching  for this website.

    Inactivity in combination with statin drugs had my liver needing a  fix. Eventually pitching those statins in the toilet in favor of  less stressing way. Exercise  and proper nutrition  with 1000 mg Milk Thistle  being the answer for  my  bloating  mid section.  While during this time in my life…. I learned  about the barriers people put up to prevent them from achieving success.

    Which Bob Green…  writes about in the above mention book and in my opinion could be the reason people get cancer. Orthomolecular Nutrition is deficiencies based on life experiences.  It’s part of the human condition with nothing being simple in life and everything interconnected. Messy thoughts lead to more messy thoughts,  complicated relationships,  deeply imprinted bad habits and disgusting memories of  this complicated “stupid” world.

   As our human physiological wiring is  mixed adding another obstacle to life misery.  Almost everybody having achieved anything meaningful in life has overcome some kind of barrier. It becomes a profound illusion that can change your life in a profound way. Take Michael Jordan being told he was not good enough  for his high school team and late achieving success on the basketball court.

    Also, one of  America’s most beloved poets of  her time Emily Dickinson, being published little in her lifetime. Being reviewed harshly by her critics, she  just kept writing nonetheless.  More recently under my own account is The Eva Cassidy Storyline: whom left her fear of  fame get in the way of her singing career.  When you leave those  fears behind you  and take action to improve your situation you will transcend the test of time.

   Whatever it is preventing you  from achieving your desired result.  It is within this time that you will end up with the confidence,  inner drive and positive energy to control that dis-ease in your life.  Making all things that are possible in all areas of  your life probable.  Identifying and overcoming your barriers, will not only, help you become  physically healthier person,  but also, a psychologically and emotionally healthier person.

  That’s when you’re going to start living a much healthier and happier life. Free of  the cancer within all of us.  As  many  people’s  minds  are  closed  to  the idea that they may  find pleasure in a positive change of  lifestyle. When  it comes  to healthy eating and exercise they expect the unpleasant and that in itself will make it beou have come a self – fulfilling prophecy.

    As the brain tends to like short cuts,  its malleable and when you look         at the positive side of things you forget the negative side. People always tend to think that cancer is strictly in the genes. Truth be told one – third comes  from poor diet  (chemicals in our  food and in direct contact with    the chemicals we use in the house.) 

   It’s not enough  fruits  and vegetables,  to much saturated  fat,  sugar          and sodium,  and red meat and alcohol.  Also it’s being sedentary and/or overweight:  while another third  is caused by smoking cigarettes/cigars.     It can be triggered by negative outlook & emotional state which increase your likelihood of being stressed and craving desserts.

  Therefore,  overcoming these pulls you have to realize what the strong  negative pulls in your life are. While revving your brain to better health. You will have to start  changing your long held views  and the ways that  you talk to yourself and reason things out in your head. To me that is the cancer in you and you better do something about it before it starts eating away in your body.

Knowing That Special Someone

   When  a  cancer  patient  hears  for the  first time  they  have  cancer.               I can only imagine what goes through their mind the emotion it steers          in them and  fear it strikes.  A million thoughts  and  feelings all at one     time  ~ not to mention the other phrase spoken at the end of  the battle.        We must let the cancer run it’s course nothing can be done for you.

    Those  words  I know are world stoppers  your thoughts stand still               as your world stops you deadly in step. Which makes you wonder that  since 1971,  when  then President Nixon  declared  war on cancer.  What amount has been spent and how much research they have been keeping   from the people of  this  fine country.

    Since starting my research project some 8 1/2 years ago of  gaining  insight and ridicule  from acquaintance,  friends and  family members.   This website and the Facebook Group… has progressed to meeting new likeminded people that provide me with support.  Lacking the belief  in      cut,  burn  and poison because they don’t see successful conclusion.

   From a sales person I know,  Paulette at a local store whom herself  a            25 year survivor of  Lymphoma. Whom most recently had a health issue with her carotid artery being replaced  from the chemotherapy burning them away 25 years later.  Which she stated is fine because she still had received 25 more years out of  life than others.

    As many cancer patients hear experiences like Paulette of  cut, burn        and poison yourself to good health. Others are sensing a more non toxic approach of  nutrition, supplementation and also building your immune system up again. So your body resist the disease and gives it a chance to heal itself  once again back to good health.

   Lately,  I have been blessed with a supportive Facebook Group that understands the possibilities  from both sides of  the debate.  With one    such  friend being Rachel Bangert,  Nutritional Consultant & Wellness Coach.  A person like Rachel is the type of  person every cancer patient should have in their corner of  the ring to  fight cancer.

Let’s Be Proactive

   It was 3 years ago on Labor Day… that I  focused on what might be with      the Hope of that thought expanding.  I decided Hell Over High Water began my effort to organize and put together a website  for cancer patients having free access to cancer research via a centralized hub of  cancer research.  And is my belief the first 30 to 40 blog post in the website accomplished that goal.

   Taking the strain  from  five years before while gathering the information. Started on my quest of finding answers and learning the in’s and out’s about the internet. The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy:  which is any positive or negative expectation about circumstance,  events or people that may affect a person’s behavior. Most times what you think happen… nothing positive comes from negative thoughts!!!

   This behavioral change…. could cause or not cause that expectation to be  fulfilled.  For  example:  an  employer  that expects employees  to be disloyal and shirkers.Will likely treat them in away that will elicit the very response “Give,  and  it  will  be  given  to  you. They  will  pour  into  your  lap  a  good measure — pressed down,  shaken together,  and  running over.  For by your standard of  measure it will be measured to you in return.”    Luke  6:38

Let’s Be Proactive Not Reactive About Our Health!!

1.  Every person has cancer cells in their body.  These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. Thereby when doctors tell cancer patients there are  no  more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment,  it just means tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2.  Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental pollutes, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract et cetera and can  cause organ damage,  like liver,  kidneys,  heart,  lungs…. etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However, prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy.  Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.     Finding a Cancer Dietitian?

*CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to  the cancer cells.  Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet,  Equal,  Spoonful, et cetera  are made with Aspartame and it is harmful.  A better natural substitute  would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added making it white in color (A Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.)

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus.  By cutting off milk and substituting…. with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells might become starved. (A tip from this John Hopkins Newsletter?)  When it comes to soy…. some say it’s bad, some say it’s good, so unless evidence shows that it’s okay, maybe it’s better to avoid having soy altogether.  Almond milk is healthier. There is also coconut milk so checkout the nutritional facts for yourself ?

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best      to eat fish,  and a little chicken rather than beef or pork.  Meat  also  contains  livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d.  A diet made  of  80% fresh vegetables and juice,  whole grains,  seeds,  nuts and a little fruit helps put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans.  Fresh vegetable juices provides live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish  and enhances growth of healthy cells.  To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try  and  drink fresh vegetable juice (mostly vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. While Green Tea is a better alternative and has cancer  fighting properties.  With regards to water,  it is best to drink purified water,  or filtered water,  to avoid known toxins  and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. Refraining from or eating less meat frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (Aloe Vera Juice, IP6, Flor essence, Essiac Tea, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) With Green Juicing & Medicinal Mushrooms enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells.  Other supplements like vitamin E known to cause apoptosis,  programmed cell death, the body’s own normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.  A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness  and bitterness puts the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.  Also Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.  Exercising daily and deep breathing helps to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

1. No plastic containers in microwave.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

John Hopkins  has  recently sent  this out in its newsletters.  This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.  Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer.  Dioxins are highly poisonous  to the cells of our bodies.  Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water  in  them  as  this  releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.  You get the same results, only without the dioxin.  So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.  Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper.  It is just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.  Also,  he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.  As the food is nuked,  the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.  Cover food with a paper towel instead. Microwaving actually changes the molecular structure of food.  Therefore,  Microwaving should never be done by anyone with cancer.

Stormy Weather

    Something strange is happening on the weather  fronts anymore here in the United States and it has meteorologist perplex. When we have tornadoes and wind shear we have a lot of  it.  It’s boom or bust as tornadoes can occur anytime of  year.  All it takes is the improper conditions.

   It  varies  by  location,  however,  the  season  runs  from  spring  to  mid summer. With the biggest hotspot being Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Florida and  Nebraska.  In  the  past  few  decades  the  United States  has  averaged annually about 1,250 tornadoes of all sizes per year. With the days number with at least one significant tornado going down.

   But the number of  super busy days  with  30 or more tornadoes going    up.  In  the  1970′s,  they came once  every  two  years or so. Today we get tornado clusters  3 times a year.  Studies have shown  through computer simulation  as the world warms.  The U.S. will  see slightly more thunder storms providing unstable conditions  for tornadoes  and hurricanes.

  While storminess should increase with the warming surface conditions      of earth.  Wind shear  which provides  the rotation  and organization  for tornadoes are projected to decrease.  However, because the wind shear is  expected  to  decline  only  on  certain  days. When  we  have  disturbances expect tornado bunching that keeps this weather puzzle going.

   With strong upper atmospheric ridges and troughs. One should expect more  and more  “polar vortexs”  in the winter,  sizzling  days  in  summer  with cooler nights.  With air disturbances  from  those  Greenland Blocks,  nasty chemtrails,  parching droughts causing wildfires  and unrelenting snowpocalypses events.

   Feeling these long wave patterns could be devastating like a whip being swung in California. With a strong high pressure area  that keeps that area parched.  With rain clouds being kept away and keeping the jet stream into Canada. And in reaction to that… the jet stream will “vortex” into the deep south carrying Canadian cold and snow with it.

  This past winter being one of  the coldest and snowiest in recent memory.  The jet stream  dumping big storms over the Northeast in the United States. While  flooding  Great Britain  with its wettest January  there in two  and a half  centuries.  So with anyone whom shivered, shoveled and slogged their way through last winter.

   They like me…. anguished at the thought of  finding the reason  for the polar vortex  and  its  frequent  unwelcome  excursions  into the Southern  part of the United States.  With many climate specialist warning that this phenomenon may become  frequent  within an over populated planet and increasing global warming.

  So be prepared  when these storms hit with  fervor and your lights go out. The real reason  for  this blog post is I often wonder how much the changing conditions  influence the steady increase in cancer rates globally. Especially the ever increasing smog rate in China  and  combined with the link between neonicotinoids and honey bee die off  here in the United States.

   Therefore,  with all the chemicals we breath and consume in our food and water supply.  It is becoming more and more important to be aware through awareness to prevent cancer. Especially the threat that Obamacare may end up being a major nightmare that sucks every living American dry?

“Type D” Stands for Dis-ease

   Have you ever  found yourself  with sweaty hands on a  first date or  felt your heart pound during a scary movie? Then you know you can feel stress in both your mind and body.  Stress:  We’ve all  felt it.  Sometimes stress can be a positive force,  motivating you to perform well  at your piano recital or job interview.  But often — like when you’re stuck in traffic — it’s a negative force.

     Even short–lived,  minor  stress  can  have  an  impact.  You  might  get         a stomach — ache before you have to give a presentation  for example. More major acute stress,  whether caused by a  fight with your spouse or an event like an earthquake or terrorist attack, can have an even bigger impact. Also Multiple studies have shown these sudden stresses — especially anger — can trigger heart attacks, arrhythmias and even sudden death.

    Although this happens mostly in people who already have heart disease, some  people  don’t  know  they have a problem…. until acute stress causes a heart attack or something worse. When  stress  starts  interfering  with your ability to live a normal life  for an extended period,  it can become even more dangerous. The longer the stress last, the worse it is  for both your mind and body. You might feel fatigued, unable to concentrate or irritable for no good reason and it’s because of  the mind and body connection.

    Stress can make existing problems worse.  In  one  study  about  half  the participants saw improvements in chronic headaches after learning how to stop the stress-producing habit of “catastrophizing,”  or constantly thinking negative thoughts about their pain.  Chronic stress  may  also  cause disease, either because of changes in your body or the overeating, smoking and other bad habits people use to cope with stress.

   Job strain — high demands coupled with low decision-making latitude —   is associated with increased risk of  coronary disease.  Also other forms of chronic stress,  such  as  depression  and low levels of  social support,  have  been implicated in increased cardiovascular risk.  Once you’re sick,  stress can also make it harder to recover.

One analysis of past studies, for instance, suggests cardiac patients with so-called “Type D”  personalities - characterized  by  chronic distress - face higher risks of bad outcomes.

What you can do!!

Reducing your stress levels, can not only,  make you feel better right now,  but also,  protect your health long-term.  In one study,  researchers  examined  the  association between “positive affect” — plus feelings like happiness, enjoyment, contentment and  enthusiasm — and  the  development of coronary heart disease  over  a  decade.  They  found that for every one-point increase in positive affect on a five-point scale, the rate        of heart disease dropped by 22 percent.

While the study doesn’t prove that increasing positive affect decreases cardiovascular risks, the researchers recommend boosting your positive affect by making a little time      for enjoyable activities every day.

Other strategies for reducing stress include:

  • Identify what’s causing stress. Monitor your state of mind throughout the day.     If you feel stressed,  write down the cause,  thoughts and your mood.  Once you know what’s bothering you,  develop a plan for addressing it. That might mean setting more reasonable expectations for yourself or asking for help with household responsibilities, job assignments or other tasks.  List all your commitments,  assess your priorities and then eliminate any tasks that are not absolutely essential.
  • Build strong relationships. Relationships can be a source of stress. Research has found  that  negative,  hostile reactions  with your spouse causes immediate changes in stress-sensitive hormones. But relationships that can serve as stress buffers. Reach out to family members or close friends and let them know you’re having a tough time. They may be able to offer practical assistance,  useful ideas or just a fresh perspective as you begin to tackle whatever’s causing your stress.
  • Walk away when you’re angry. Before you react, take time to regroup by counting to 10.  Then reconsider walking  or other physical activities that can also help you work off steam.  Exercise also increases production of endorphins, that is your body’s natural mood-booster. Commit to a daily walk or other form of exercise — a small step that can make a big difference in reducing stress levels.
  • Rest your mind. According to APA’s 2012 Stress in America survey, stressful lives  keeps more than 40 percent of adults lying awake at night. To help ensure you get the recommended seven or eight hours of shut-eye,  cut back on caffeine,  remove any and all distractions from your life. Such as television or computers from your bedroom and go to bed at the same time each night while setting your own biological clock. Research shows that activities like yoga  and relaxation exercises,  not only,  helps reduce stress, but also boost immune functioning.
  • Fighting Post-Cancer Fatigue.  Also practicing yoga may also help reduce fatigue  in breast cancer survivors.  Researchers in a study  at The Ohio State University of 200 breast cancer survivors  two months  to three years  past  their last surgical or radiation treatment. Found that women who took a 90 minute Hatha Yoga Class twice a week for 12 weeks reported nearly 60 percent less fatigue six months after the class than women who took no yoga.
  • Get help.  If you continue to feel overwhelmed,  consult with a psychologist or other licensed mental health professional who can help you learn how to manage your stress effectively.  He or she can also help you identify situations or behaviors that contribute to your chronic stress and then develop an action plan for changing them.

Don’t Be Overwhelmed …Just Ask?

  A lot goes through your mind  when a cancer patient hears those        dreadful words “you have cancer.”  With so much  being said about chemotherapy and radiation. With over half  the population saying              it’s a rip off  and  the medical industry  is killing us  for profit. What             are the guidelines one should conceive before the cancer be treated.             You can learn a lot scrolling through the  first 20 blogs of  this website but?

  When you hear you have cancer your whole life changes and you        address everything. Supplements to toxins, lack of  exercise to your emotional well being. Realizing their are no over night magical pill.           Our bodies  takes along time  to destroy itself  and it will take along                to heal itself.  With everyone looking  for the silver bullet you learn          there is no such thing…    I had to use Paula Doyle-Weigel words!

   First and  foremost  as I consulted  my  good  friend Alyssia Sade,                we agreed  that a cancer patient  needs  to  build  a “winning team.”                Like a prize  fighter the person needs people in their corner who can          give second and third opinions.  If  one  has the  funds having  2 0r 3     doctors is the way to go —  if they don’t speak nutrition find a doctor Naturopath that can advise you of  supplementation.

     Also understand the human body  and  how the immune system                can  be  built back up  given the right nutrients.  Also one should get                  a hair analysis  if  they  can’t afford a high dollar blood test  (to see           what the body was craving that enabled the cancer to develop in the          first place.) Also we often hear cannabis oil works  for terminally ill    patientshowever,  that often happens  because they seek cannabis physicians and don’t self  medicate.

    I am  finding  for most in the United States during this depression                 we live.  With  our  fearless government officials  not having a clue to                fix  and  is  far worse then they know.  My impression how cancer can             be caused through the interplay between  farming, diet and nutrition. Vitamins and minerals are stripped  from  the  ground which causes a mineral deficiency in our diet.

    Also  consuming  a standard American diet of   junk  food  that limit             our body’s from gaining proper nutrition. We have malnutrition in the United States and don’t even know it.  In  the  book  written  by Charles Walters,  “Minerals  for  the  Genetic Code.”   This  book  explains  how minerals works in groups of  4  synergistically.  So  for instance iodine      and  fluorine are in a group together.

     Flourine trumps Iodine: so body processes that were once carried out using Iodine as a catalyst.  Are now carried out  using Flourine which can disrupts the smooth  functioning of  the body which leads to disease. While some believe mineral deficiencies  are the single most important culprit to cancer.  Others believe the reason  lies in the delicate pH Balance  between alkalinity and acidosis.   Thanks  for explaining that Lisa Williams  :)

    While some will tell you  that the best method  to get your pH balance is through baking soda. Others tell you like I believe green vegetable juicing is a far better method which supplies you with adequate amounts of  vitamins, minerals, (phyto) nutrients and enzymes the body needs. Often healing your body naturally requires vitamins,  minerals & herbs to  fight against cancer. Unfortunately,  with no steadfast list to help which adds to a cancer patients  confusion.

    When you have cancer,  I believe the single most important item 1 needs     to do is build a support group that you can lean on during those tough days. Being  their are no cures  for cancer  and  fighting cancer  is a hard struggle. Therefore,  it’s  important  to do  your own research  when  every little thing adds up to a big deal. With group pages like Solitarius on Facebook helping cancer patients  find the light through the darkness.

Is Terry Fox a True Hero?

  At the age of  eighteen, he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma and  for those of you who aren’t doctors, this means bone cancer. As a result his right leg had to be amputated  to 15 inches above the knee in 1977.  When he was in the hospital he saw cancer patients,  many of  them  children  and  decided to run across Canada to raise $1 million  for cancer research.

   The idea  for the Marathon of Hope came from Terry Fox alone. He trained secretly  by  running about  four thousand kilometers.  When  he  determined he was ready he announced that he would run across the country.  He hadn’t even  told  his  family.  His  original  goal  was  to  raise  a  dollar  from  every Canadian.

   I have only  ever seen  the CBC version  and it showed the human side of Terry  including  him being angry over a  few different things.  Things that I would also have been quite angry over, like being accused of not running all the way across Quebec. The man did something that was bigger than life, he deserves to be seen in the same way .

     If  I recall – He had one companion who drove an old beat up van – they would stop in some small town and no one knew about him – that was at the beginning.  And the story grew - Just try an imagine the personal drive and commitment he had inside of  him.  The pain he endured, he had to have had more personal drive & commitment in one day of running than many people will have in a lifetime.

    I think Terry Fox was about as good a human as it is “humanly” possible to be.  There are two ways to view someone as a hero.  One is the individual view of  a hero,  and the second  is the societies vision of  what  constitutes a hero, and by individual merritt, both are correct in my view. As individuals, one might regard someone a bonafide hero if he saved your life, or someone in your family.

   There are also people like Terry Fox, who created something bigger than himself,  while  not  trying  to  create an annual event,  all he was doing was drawing attention to a problem. Terry Fox also displayed the attributes of a genuine person. As Terry Fox created the Marathon of hope and he ran until his cancer came back and drove him out of  that event and killed him.

    Thereafter,  Steve Fonyo is viewed as someone who took up Foxes’ run,     but perception views him  as an opportunist who’s actions did not display those of a role model. Steve Fonyo didn’t have the strong mental approach  to life that Terry Fox had,  he  also  tried to mimic what Terry Fox did,  but unfortunately his poor character got in the way, he was not the  first, and didn’t match up to the ‘first’.

    Being  the  fact  Steve Fonyo is a  fellow Hungarian  has  nothing  to  do  with the reasoning.  Steve Fonyo  on  the other hand  was both stupid  and irresponsible. True he ran across the country, and he was given numerous chances  to  get around his drinking  and his drug problems. He  was  even awarded the Order of Canada,  but  he  persisted  in  drinking  and  driving and he ended up in jail. 

  Although,  Steve Fonyo did  finish the cross country run, he never caught the imagination of  the people like Terry Fox. I really don’t think Terry Fox intended to be a hero. Thereby, heroism is coined in the reflection of events and also nominees usually get that title when their actions weren’t for self gratification.  Steve Fonyo  looked  very much like someone in need of self gratification and promotion.

    I can admire the  ‘image’  that  many  sports  and  celebrity heroes put forward, however, as we have now realized in the Tiger Wood’s situation, the image is only an image, and sometimes the real person is someone else and  when they  fall,  they  fall  hard.  Terry Fox  whom  was  a regular guy, not a celebrity,  he is/was a ‘real’ hero and the kind we will never  forget.

I’ve Got Cancer, Now What?

  People they can’t just reach and grab everything off  the shelf, use it and expect to heal. By itself  High Dose Intravenous vitamin C works… Budwig same thing.  However, when you put them together they cancel each other. That’s why its wise to use a base protocol  Budwig or Gerson  and research other things like Chaga Mushroom or Moringa.

   The mind  is  like a parachute  it will only work when its open,  therefore, when you add anything make sure it won’t counteract other things. Juicing is okay but when you go through chemotherapy.  Sometimes the chemo will destroy gut flora making it nearly impossible to juice. Also your body needs rest to heal, thereby, easy exercise is good but strenuous exercise can stress your immune system.

    After taking all  factors into consideration  and deciding the  foundation you would like to build around. Many people are aware of  Budwig’s Muesli, however, most don’t realize that it includes 40 ounces of  green juice per day and sauerkraut which supplies you more probiotics and strains than almost any supplement you will find in any health  food store.   And Cheaper!!!

   Another aspect of  Budwig is most never heard of  Rebounding in the Sun (vitamin D.)  Along  with periodic  fasting where you literally rebuild a new immune system in days. Making sure that everything works synergistically, stick with it… build around a foundation… don’t dabble or stop. Understand what it is your trying to accomplish. Understand The Body and Disease!!!

    Remember  don’t  overload your body  or overwhelm your mind  with  to many things.  If  one  person  does to many things  they won’t be relaxed and run the risk of  therapy canceling out the effectiveness and benefit of another while having negative gain on recovery. Gerson can be labor intense making you  feel tied down to a juicer running to the bathroom.

    From being gluten  free,  sugar  free,  dairy  free,  organic  with no spices. It controls toxic chemical, juicing for enzymes and detox, supplement intake to exercise it’s restrictive. With the general thinking don’t overload yourself with anything  and your body will heal itself.  Change the lifestyle that gave you cancer in the  first place  and you will change your outcome.

  Hearing “no spices”  when others tell you turmeric helped them cure their cancer adds confusion to the therapy.  That said after building a  foundation in which to build upon. Wormwood better known as  “Artemisinin”  which is a strong herb to build on. Generally regarded with parasite killing cleansing properties  and  is  good  for stomach issues… it  can  stimulate  the  digestive system (muscle testing is suggested before using  for healing cancer.)

    Another promising treatment  being  used  today  is  Mistletoe Injections but not in the United States. Better known as Iscador, it’s important to have  a NK test (Natural Killer Test of your immune system.) While doing a multi- prong approach using diet, supplements, essential oils & exercise. Some are saying it helps with the side effects of chemotherapy while giving your own immune system a boost. With the only harsh side effect being a bump that turns red where the injection is given that shows the dose is right.

My Cancer Journey by Sherri Shilcrat

    In July 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer over the phone.                     I remember arguing  with the pathologist  that some horrible mistake         must  have  happened.  It  wasn’t  true  because I could not have breast  cancer.  Unfortunately it was true and my journey was just beginning.         A lumpectomy  followed and I was given the diagnosis  invasive ductal carcinoma and triple negative breast cancer grade 3 with micromets in    one lymph node.

    Of course the recommended course was chemotherapy and radiation.          I refused to have the chemotherapy and was not sure about the radiation treatment.  I  felt I must research everything thoroughly to make sure my decisions  that  I made were the right decisions.   My  heart  knew  what  I  was  about to embark upon  and  that  was naturopathic medicine.  I  felt    that traditional medicine was not the right path  for me at that time.

    I called naturopaths and asked what my diet should be and the answer  was  plant  food.  I also talked  with several naturopaths  and  found in my state they gave vitamin c infusions  which they started immediately every week. Without 3 weeks of my lumpectomy another lump serviced. Another biopsy  showed  it  to  have  cancer cells  at  the  margin.  My  surgeon  was also upset that I hadn’t done chemo or radiation and wanted me to have a mastectomy.

      After  flying  to  Phoenix  and  having  more  naturopathic  treatment          I decided to have  the third surgery  to  see  if  there was any more cancer. The results  showed  no cancer.  I  contacted  a naturopathic oncologist in Scottsdale,  Arizona and had an integrative protocol while going through radiation.  My protocol  was powerful  and  I suffered  no side effects and  felt strong.

    Since that time  I have been under  the naturopathic  oncologist’s  care          and  my  blood work up  is excellent.  My  natural  killer  cells  are at a good  level  and  all  blood  work  shows normal ranges.  I  exercise  5x a week, lift weights,  do kettle bell training, eat plant food, reduce my stress by gamma brain wave cd’s and loving my second life.  I also suffered zero side effects.    I am alive and well and did not lose my left breast.

     Natural medicine  save my life  and today I am a vital,  healthy breast cancer survivor. Looking back I think it was the 25,000 to 50,ooo vitamin C infusions that helped my cause.  To maintain I do Qi Gong, Reiki meditation and take supplements  for the adrenal glands to help with cortisol.  One key    I  feel  that helped  was visualizing  the cancer cells were dying off  and that  my body was pure with the healing sounds of  removing those toxins.

    As I sit hear typing this blog post  for Sherri,  she mentioned the stress  load that she always feels.  I often wonder how  stress plays a part of  this dreadful dis-ease.  When you’re stressed  could it effect vital vitamins and minerals (calcium & potassium) while making magnesium levels low with calcitrol high.  Sherri  mention,  stress use to be an issue that would make her sick to her stomach.
