Even at times the name of this website is criticized, however, the Solitarius Stem is the nucleus in the brain that provides you with understanding and taste. In some ways, that’s what this website is all about. Which is it provides the visitant of this website prevention through awareness/knowledge. Its a centralized hub of informationshowcasing the options for cancer.
Cancer in a child is very different from cancer in an adult, as many adult cases can be attributed to diet or lifestyle factors as the trigger to cancer growth. In children, cancer is generally due to predisposing genetic conditions. While some childhood cancer cases are also due to environmental exposures and immune suppression, still others maybe from a mother that smoked or the usage of a plastic baby bottle?
Some of the other exposures that can lead to a child with cancer is radiation exposure, quite possibly electromagnetic fields and parental exposure to chemicals such as pesticides, solvents, heavy metals and petroleum based products. Or also getting a lawn treated, walking on it and bringing it into the house/pushing a baby stroller by the exhaust of a car in a parking lot.
The most common types of childhoodcancer in children are leukemia, brain tumors, neuroblastoma, and non – Hodgkins Lymphoma. With the symptoms including unexplained weight loss, headaches with vomiting, persistent pain in the bones , a lump or a mass, excessive bleeding or also bruising, an unexplained rash, constant infections and or also fatigue, sudden vision changes, persistent nausea and unexplained fevers.
If a child is diagnosed with cancer…. Naturopathic Medicine can help support their bodies. Naturopathic Medicine can reduce side effects, while supporting the immune system, reduce weight loss and fatigue, therefore, Naturopathic physicians can treat neuropathy (numbness & tingling) and hearing changes, as well as mouth sores and radiation burns.
Scientist once assumed the heart shrank or simply wore out with age. But they now know the aging hearts actually adapts over time. That the heart responds to changes occurring within the aging cardiovascular system. Which comprises, not only, the heart, but also, the large and small blood vessels throughout the body making the heart vulnerable.
Your body’s capacity for strenuous exercise decreases by about 50 percent between your 20′s and 60′s. About half this decline is due to the physical changes taking place in the heart itself. Your heart doesn’t just weaken with age, it actually adjust over time to response to the stress of pumping harder as your arteries gradually stiffen and becomes less elastic.
For example, the walls of the left ventricle become thicker so the stress on that muscle is spread over a larger area. The first noticeable results are a lower maximum heart rate and lower cardiac out put. Which is the amount of blood pumped. As a result, less oxygenated blood can also be pumped through the body, and you may begin to feel short of breath when you exert yourself by climbing stairs.
Like many other aspects of aging, these changes in the hearts capacity occur at a very individual rate. With the recent advances in a variety of diagnostic techniques, researchers have been able to see inside the body to better understanding how aging affects your cardiovascular system and specifically your heart.
As the cardiovascular system agesalong with the rest of the body. The walls of your arteries gradually become less elastic, and consequently become stiffer and less responsive. As a result, your arteries can not relax as quickly after your heart pumps blood. Which results in increased blood pressure as the blood pressure valves in the heart thicken and relax more slowly.
To keep the blood moving effectively your heart adjusts with structural changes. Individual factors such as the elasticity of your arteries and the diameter of these vessels. Which may have narrowed over the years because of plaque buildup, all contribute to the workload your heart must overcome during each heart beat.
While lessening your chances of developing blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and obesity — all major, yet controllable risk factors for heart disease. When you’re active enough to raise your heart rate… you decrease the amount of adrenaline in your body. Less adrenaline means more relax blood vessels, a slower pulse rate, lower blood pressure and ultimately less strain on your cardiovascular system.
In addition, exercise reduces the amounts of harmful LDL cholesterol that your body produces and helps raise the HDL cholesterol. Which in turn will help keep your arteries clear of plaque. Therefore, you can start to see being physically active really does affect your health in a variety of ways. Moderately intense to vigorous exercise, will give you more energy while making you feel better about yourself.
Hello to all, My name is Nikki Meysenburg and this is my story. I was asked to write my thoughts and feelings about the devastating illness called cancer and the depression that follows. Yes cancer, now while I don’t have first – hand knowledge of this illness. I do have experience being in unrelenting pain 24/7/365 for the past 12+ years.
I have been diagnosed with the following: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain Syndrome, Sciatica, trochanteric bursitis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and I have herniated and bulging discs in my cervical spine, my thoracic spine, my lumbar spine and even in the sacral area. So believe me when I say, “I do understand about what pain does to you.”
I have had the following procedures done to me: Spinal fusion in C3, C4 & C5, and had radio frequency neuropathy. Which is burning of the nerves in the facets in the lumbar region. I have been injected with radio-active isotopes for bone scans, to scan my gall bladder which has been removed. I have been subjected to CT Scans, Myleograms, MRI’s, epidural steroid injections, trigger point therapy, physical therapy, water physical therapy, have been injected with cortisone, acupuncture, you name it I have had it done.
The medications that were prescribed to me are as follows: oxy-Codone, LorTab, Flexeril, Neurontin, Gabitril, and Ambien. In addition to all the ones I had to take, I can no longer remember that ones that had to be taken daily. The dosages were at almost, if not at the maximum dosage allowable by law.
I have thought about what cancer is for a long time as I have family, friends and even co-workers who have had to deal with this horrible disease and I have been privy to some of their pain. I find that people all react differently to this diagnosis, some take it straight on. While others slowly work their way through it, with faith and then unfortunately those who are not able to overcome the diagnosis because it came too late. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iksA-DD3990
The instant that word crosses your doctor’s lips your world changes. I am not going to get technical, because you have been bombarded already by “medical information”, nor am I going to say, ”my way is the only way because we all have to find what helps us.” As there are so many different people there are also so many different ways to overcome pain, depression, illness… et cetera.
What I do know is that we must be there for each other, helping celebrate the good, allow the tears to flow when things go wrong and just be supportive of each other. I have listened and also researched, http://www.hightimes.com/read/biologist-explains-how-thc-kills-cancer-cells tried new ideas out and have found three things that have helped me overcome all of the medical issues I deal with daily. These are not “new” ideas, but ones that have always been there, we just forgot where to look. So here are the three things that I have found helped me physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.
The first thing is to find something that makes your heart and soul sing. Whether it is painting, reading, gardening, cooking, sewing, dancing, singing, fishing, swimming, or just walking in the woods. Whatever it is that… makes you smile, then do it, when you can. On days the pain and nausea is overwhelming then meditate, laugh, rest and give your body time to heal.
Take what is destructive and turn it into something constructive. Feed your creative energy. I know it is not always easy to do, please believe me, but even on “bad” days you can listen to music or read. Learn a new language, help out someone who needs it, listen to an elderly person, not only will it make them smile it will make you smile as well. The power of the mind is amazing and it will help you to heal, if You Allow it too. Remember also do what makes You happy and makes your heart fill with happiness.
While its the chemicals, pesticides, GMO’s, artificial sweeteners that are all being found toxic to your health; even fluoride is coming under closer scrutiny. In order to be healthy you must eat healthy. Good, clean, organic foods must be the fuel you use to stay healthy. http://www.psypost.org/2014/02/psychological-side-effects-of-anti-depressants-worse-than-thought-23193 There are many instances when people who have stopped eating commercially grown food and gone back to organics have had less pain issues. Your body can heal itself but not if you keep putting toxins back into it.
There are cannoids, cannabis, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iksA-DD3990 turmeric, blueberries, Omega 3’s, vitamins, detoxification kits, juicing…. et cetera. You can find what works for you. Do not be afraid to try something new that actually might help. As we are all different the cures are just as different. Talk it over with your medical provider. Ask questions and if you do not like their answer ask another doctor. It is about turning this horrible diagnosis into something that is not a death sentence.
This last step: I try to do every single day. This is to laugh often, when you are ready. Once again the old adage “Laughter is the best medicine” holds true. When you laugh a chemical reaction goes through your body, your immune system gets stimulated, and as we know this is what fights off the, (as I tell my grandchildren) the “bad germies” or germs. It brings a glow to you, even helps send out endorphins which helps fight off the “pain”.
We are an amazing species, we have the capacity for unimaginable feats of greatness, and one of them is our ability to heal. I hope this helps, and please I am in no way trying to be little Susie Sunshine. As I cannot imagine in my wildest dreams what all of you are going through. I just know after 12 years of unrelenting pain, surgeries, embarrassments, these procedures…. have helped me more…. than any of the medications they gave to me. http://www.oprah.com/How-to-Relieve-Chronic-Pain-Naturally-Natural-Painkillers.
Thanks Nikki…. For Being A Member 0f The Soul Tribe…. You Inspire Me Daily
Therefore, with the outlook for patients with Mesothelioma having often been quite dire, when the lungs are impacted the disease is known as (MPM)Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma. With also the most common subtype of the disease, epithelial mesothelioma, which is slow growing and more treatable form affecting about 70 % of patients. While sarcomatoid mesothelioma is the most aggressive type and another form ”biphasic” is a mix type of the disease .
Researchers, in a recent study has found giving mesothelioma patients radiation therapy before surgery can extend life expectancy. Dr. John Cho and Dr. Marc de Perrot, has led a study at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in the University Health Network in Toronto, Canada. While evaluating the effectiveness of a special approach: SMART (Surgery for Mesothelioma After Radiation Therapy.)
Dr. Cho and a team recruited 25 mesothelioma patients for his study. All of the participants were treated with a special type of radiation called, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). Which conforms radiation around the tumor, sparing healthy nearby tissue and with the most common IMRT – related side effects being fatigue, nausea and inflamed esophagus. At three years, the cumulative survival reached 84 percent and disease – free survival of 65 percent in patients with epithelial histologic subtype.
Study co – author Dr. Marc de Perrot, M.D., professor of surgery at the University of Toronto and Head of the Toronto Mesothelioma Research Program said in research. The SMART approach, not only, shortened time of treatment, but also, blocked the cancer’s ability to spread and seed itself elsewhere in the body during surgery. These research results offer hope to mesothelioma patients who have been told all to often that they have only six months to live. http://mesotheliomalung7.reachlocal.net/
By the early 1900s, medical scientists and researchers had uncovered “persuasive evidence of the health hazards associated with asbestos.” Manufacturers and insurers knew this, and even as evidence mounted they continued to hide these findings and deny responsibility. Tens of millions of American workers have now been exposed to asbestos; more than 27 million people were occupationally exposed between 1940 and 1979.
Millions of those exposed have fallen ill, or will fall ill in the future; many have died and many more will die as a result of their exposure. The most serious asbestos – related disease is mesothelioma, a virulent cancer of the lining of the lungs that can be caused by even a short period of exposure, and is inevitably painfully fatal, often within months of diagnosis.
The Asbestos Cancer Victims’ Rights Campaign established to bring awareness to the legislation called, The FACT Act, or The Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency Act. The legislation designed: to make it more difficult for asbestos victims, including those with mesothelioma and other cancers, receive compensation for injuries through asbestos trusts and the court system.
As it stands, asbestos victims rarely receive anything close to adequate compensation. The goal of the FACT Act, under the guise of transparency, is designed to reduce this compensation even more. Our goal as an organization is to gain opposition to the FACT Act and support victims of asbestos. While living with mesothelioma or another asbestos related disease. Please consider signing our petition in opposition to this anti-victim bill.
Patients with the most common types of cancers are less likely to respond to chemotherapy when tumors are high in a protein called Leptin. According to research published in British Journal of Cancer, researchers found that patients withtumors high in Leptin responded poorly to chemotherapy.
Dr. Russell Petty, a consultant medical oncologist and study author said, 0ur work suggests that having low levels of leptin means that the tumor is more likely to be aggressive, but also, that it is more likely to respond well to chemotherapy. Therefore, knowing who will benefit most from chemotherapy will prevent many patients from undergoing unnecessary treatment.
Depository fat also functions as endocrine tissue able to negate whole – body energy metabolism. Obesity and aging are independently associated with a deregulation of adipose tissue. While resulting in pro – inflammatory status, and also excessive release of adipokines. Sometimes personally I wonder about this theory, because thin people, people whom aren’t over weight and have a High Body Mass Index also have heart attacks, stroke and get cancer as well.
In the elderly patients, visceral obesity measured by waist to hip ratio provided a better correlation with serum leptinin terms of body mass index (BMI) measurements and also appeared to be a more adequate indicator of obesity. My opinion of the Body Mass Index, is that medical professionals should take into account that muscle weighs more than fat, and sometimes the BMI maybe not a true indicator of good versus bad health.
In her youth, Tamara St. John witness at 12 years old her mother go through chemotherapy, radiation and that thought never passed her mind. The Author of the book Defeat Cancer Now which details her April 2009 experience of the lumps found on her throat, lymph nodes and left breast. While having no insurance, no money and a job lost she seeked the alternative and prevailed.
Tamara feels she was also led by God directly to the Budwig protocol and to apricot kernels, as she talks about all of the therapies in her book; as well as how to detoxify the body properly from candida, to parasites, and other toxins.
Today in her own special way…. she is cancer free while being on Facebook. While helping others with guidance through her group page and I’m sure “if ” you ask her, she would provide guidance for those in the same need she was in back then. February which was a miraculous month for me while coming face to face on Facebook with Tamara, Angel Howeron, and Lene Maria Sondermoelle Steffensen of Denmark.
And of course Angel Howeron, being a Holistic Counselor listening to her own body while developing her own protocol in the presence of GOD. Angel told me she thought her 3B MMT Uterine cancer originated from a severe accident and the stress she occurred with a broken left leg and hip, back and neck injury. Lene Maria also used the word stress when she also detailed her life as a teacher and living a Viking Lifestyle.
Although that same Viking Mindset that got her into trouble in the first place righted her ship after the fact. Through a strong mindset and stronger constitution. Always searching for herself what was right for herself, she knew in her heart and mind what she wanted to do next. Just like the sea that gives and takes, Lene Maria was willing…. to take and give to keep her own cancer in remission by her own right and this past Friday her newest scan revealed that her cancer is remaining dormat. Good Job Lene Maria
Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas having several causes and symptoms and requires immediate medical attention. It occurs when pancreatic enzymes (especially trypsin) are activated in the pancreas instead of the small intestine. It may start out as acute – beginning suddenly and lasting a few days, or become chronic and lasting indefinitely.
For Stacey Hartwell Fields, 51 of Indiana, Chronic Pancreatitis is a daily event of constant pain. Its so perplexing when your back swells and other people treat you like a drug seeker. While you take meds that do nothing for you, robs you of all your money and you’re left with a life less then normal. While it trains your mind, the pain is non manageable and you can’t do nothing about it.
So the challenges of this blog post is to create awareness and bring a few suggestions into a CP patient future. Therefore, if pancreatitis isn’t treated properly, which like Fibromyaglia can leave its victim in a debilitated state of well being. Being tough enough to diagnose let alone find proper treatment and a whole host of problems.
CP patients sufferers can be bombarded with brittle teeth and bones, and post traumatic stress disorder from dealing with it to long, to also depression that affects your heart, lungs, kidneys and liver. Its a horrific disease that could cause Crohns disease, diabetes and pancreatic cancer. With some of the possible long range treatments being TP/AIT which is major reconstruction of the digestive system and Islet Cell Transplant which plays on your mind ….its devastating to say the least.
Chronic Pancreatitis wreaks havoc on your whole life while living in constant fear of what’s next. While leaving you wondering what good is the medical profession doing for me anyways and their has to be an alternative. That alternative to me ….might be what your doctor oftenoverlooks, as most corporate type could careless about is the toxins they shove down our throats.
Its as simple as finding a safer alternative to Round Up and maybe cutting out the preservatives and chemicals they overload in our diets. The first item a CP sufferer may want to eliminate from their everyday diet is the toxins big business wants to feed us. Because toxins create this inflammation and inflammation also exacerbates the disease as a way to eliminate the disease.
While most people are like me… you can’t afford or want to spend extra for organic… it maybe the way to go. So its best to eliminate some of these dreadful preservatives and chemicals from your diet through other means. So it might be wise to reboot your system through a watchful eye of GMOs, MSG and knowing some artificial sweeteners have a chemical reaction at 86 degrees to turn into wood alcohol that turns into formaldehyde.
I myself whom always limit my consumption of red meat, while also avoiding that snack, whenever I can, because I know it will make me feel better if I do. For most CP sufferers, therefore, they should also consider masticated fresh juice from a blender, allowing themselves with 10% fat in their diet which includes the good omega 3 fat from almond, flaxseed, olive and sesame oils; instead of salmon and other fishy smells that may leave them sick (Omega 3s are a proven anti inflammatory as – well – as green tea and turmeric should be considered.)
Also for my good friend whom also has a group page on FACEBOOK, that swelling in your back and your pain you experience. A healing bath of 1/2 cup of Epsom salt, 1/2 cup of baking soda and a few drops of your favorite scented essential oil. While listening to R. Carlos Nakai may be a welcome relief ( 3 to 4 times per week when you have tremendous pain and once a week to maintain.) Thanks Angel Howeron & Nikki Meysenburg.
Hey Raymond …Ridicule is a weak weapon when pointed at a strong mind; but common people are cowards and dread an empty laugh. …Albert Einstein.
This experience also came to me as well through a person, I was introduced via Facebook. Mary Jane Campion whom at 60 years of age and doesn’t look a day over 55. In those 60 years, she has endured and overcame plenty health wise. She is still battling a few issues with the belief and intent of getting well.
Through my understanding of science based research and through MJ’s experiences, having seen miracles occur through Reiki Therapy. Which is therapy to help blockages of pure energy through your Seven Main Chakras in the human body. If you cannot believe this pure energy exist, one must remember on a cold winter day with dry skin and the buzz of static electricity that zaps you when you touch someone or something.
MJ having overcome a stroke…. through practicing Reiki Therapy on herself through the faith of knowing and believing she would get better. I can see Reiki Therapy aiding a stroke victim overcome the after math of a stroke. The average adult… has a heart the size a little bigger than their clinch fist, weighing about as much as a large turnip while looking like a upside down pear.
Beating anywhere from 60 to 100 beats per minute, the heart beats an amazing 100,000 times a day. While adding up to 2.5 billion beats by the time they turn 70 – years – old. With the heart beating because of a small electrical current generated by the cardic conduction system comprising a group of muscles and five major components.
When all these components work as they should you have a healthy heart. However dependent on age and other factors the conditions of the heart can change. Providing you with a irregular heart beat to say the least. Special cells often referred to as ”pacemaker cells” produce electricity in the body by rapidly changing their electrical charge from positive to negative and back again.
The SA node is regulated by the autonomic nervous system which controls all of the automatic functions of the body including heart beat, breathing and digestion. The sympathetic nervous system and also parasympathetic nervous system are part of the autonomic nervous system. While working in unison to control how fast the “pacemaker cells” spontaneously depolarize, increase and decrease the rate the SA node sends out electrical signals.
The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for increasing the heart beat during exercise. While the parasympathetic nervous system lowers the pulse during periods of rest. People may have different intrinsic resting pulse rates, and the reason being, due to balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Athletes, for instance, have higher parasympathetic tone, therefore, have lower pulse rates.
Reiki (pronounced raykey) is a form of “energy healing,” that some people believe transfers ”pure life energy” which generates well being. This Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation promotes healing unseen “Life Force Energy.” That flows through us and causes us to stay alive, if this life force is low, it causes us to get sick and feel stress.
Additionally, she stated her Father Michael, although in a wheel chair continues to fight his battle with lung cancer. While some of the issues she has overcame one major being a stroke. While with the modification of herbs, she has overcame partial blindness with turmeric and medicinal mushrooms (reishi, chaga, and cordyceps) provides her life energy and a strong immune system.
A respected New England Endocrinologist, began his search for answers, when he seen patients given only a few months to live come back to life. In the mid 1980s he returned to his native India to explore Aruyveda (humanities most ancient healing tradition.) Now having brought together current research of Western Medicine, neuroscience, and physics with insight of Ayurvedic Theory.
Showing the human body is controlled by a “Network of Intelligence” grounded by quantum theory. Not a superficial psychological state this intelligence lies deep within that can change the basic patterns designed to interact with our physiology – with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease and even aging itself. In todays world everybody feels stress, and stress can cause blood pressure to rise.
Stress can also cause hormones, such as adrenalin and cortisol to elevate and wreak havoc on the body. Dr. Deepak Chopra has developed a meditation cleanse to help detoxify your life of stress in just 21 days. New research shows when you have a quiet mind, your body (including your brain), quiets – allowing for self — repair. Which creates a ”new” neural network in your brain that helps regulate stress.
Had a friend on Facebook most recently tell me that you can’t believe everything you see on the internet. However, Solitarius is about bringing all the options to light… so the visitants can research it themselves. What meditation daily can do…. is connect you to the spiritual and mysterious aspects of your inner being and existence. Meditation allows you to open your mind and ponder profound reasons ….with a higher consciousness, eliminating stress and also the dis-ease that may cause disease.
This Conundrum is a mind — changing manifesto about the environment, efficiency, and the real path to sustainability. Hybrid cars, fast trains, compact fluorescent light bulbs, solar panels, carbon footprints: everything you have been told about living green is wrong. We consumers, we like to consume green and efficiently. However, David Owen author of the book: The Conundrum argues that our best efforts are still at cross purposes to our true goal — living sustainably, caring for our environment and future of our planet. Efficiency, once considered the holy grail of our environmental problems, turns out to be part of this vicious circle .
A small rise in the sea level can affect many people in a world growing smaller by a greater population, where sea levels have risen approximately 9 inches in the last 140 years. By the year 2100, sea levels is expected to rise another 1.0 to 4 feet. Why should we care: because the generation behind us will have to deal with that outcome through greater risk of claminity and disease… is that what you want for your grand children?
Sea levels will rise, increasingly more droughts and wildfires in some regions, with more flooding in others; more heat waves and other effects of climate change all pose risk to human health. Also infrastructure including homes, roads, cities and ecosystems along the coastal land will be in great jeopardy while being exposed to the elements.
