Can PTSD Increase Your Breast Cancer Risk?

A few weeks ago I discussed the physical and mental benefits that go along with “turning on” the Relaxation Response and offered some tips on how to elicit this healing response within you. If you have not read that blog post yet, you can check it out HERE.

But what about when a person cannot get out of the cycle of stress for long enough to turn on the Relaxation Response, no matter how hard they try?

Ways of Life – Psalm 90:10

There are many ways of life found in the Bible. One of those ways of life is defined in Psalm 90:10. The writer of this Psalm is making the observation at his time that the average age was around 70 years. But if someone had strength, they made it another 10 years (decade).

Psalm 90:10 (KJV): “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” Continue reading

Science journal confirms eating turmeric cured myeloma cancer in 57-year-old woman

After undergoing three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants and still finding herself sick and weak, blood cancer patient, Dieneke Ferguson, believed she reached the end of her tether. She was told she had exhausted all her options. “Nothing worked: there was just too much cancer….there was nothing else I could do,” she recalled in an interview with The Daily Mail. Ferguson, though, refused to accept the “inevitable and turned towards an alternative treatment: curcumin. The polyphenol, which is the main compound of turmeric, is what has been keeping her alive and well for the last five years, she says. Her extraordinary story will be featured in an upcoming study in the British Medical Journal. Continue reading

Managing Cancer as a Metabolic Disease

~ Foreword ~
What you are about to read is exciting to me – but it comes with a single drawback, one which I refer to as, “let us ignore all those who came before us…”. I began to work with Dr. William D. Kelley, D.D.S., M.S. in the late 1980’s. I was trained by him to administer teaching and guidance for cancer victims – and in fact worked with many of the afflicted from all over the world. Kelley is considered one of the modern day pioneers in this field and is recognized as such along with other names in the advancement of true cancer cure, Max Gerson, Otto Warburg, Nicholas Gonzalez (one of Kelley’s most significant students), Bryzinski, Hulda Clarke, Johanna Budwig, Royal Rife, Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer (and others) – and one very dominant name – that of Dr. John Beard – from whose writings of the early 1900’s took Kelley down the path to further study and expand on the main topic of this posting – Metabolic Disease. If it were not for the work of Beard and subsequently Kelley with his significant advancement in this field – we would still be light years behind where we are today. It has just taken the modern “experts” to catch up with the work of these two pioneers – yet neither receives the credit where due.~ Jeffrey Bennett, Publisher

Metabolic therapy, which includes a ketogenic diet, has been shown to prevent and treat many cancers, including “incurable” late-stage cancers

Cancer has become Americans’ No. 1 health concern. It is easy to understand why. Fifty percent of men and 41 percent of women will develop cancer during their lifetimes. But what if you didn’t need to fear cancer because you knew it was a metabolic disease that you could treat and recover from like other conditions?

Did you know that according to the American Cancer Society over 1,600 people die every day from cancer in the U.S.? That’s over 600,000 people each year. And when you include the entire world population that number climbs tenfold to over 7.6 million. Think about it. What if that many people died each day from Zika, or Ebola or polio? Continue reading

A third of all cancers could be prevented with these plant-based nutrients

Each year, over 10 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer, one million of them are Americans. While there is a common misconception that whether or not you will get cancer is pretty much luck of the draw, in reality, only about 10 percent of cancers are attributable to genetic factors. As many as 90 percent of all cancers can be blamed squarely on lifestyle and environmental factors, and are entirely avoidable. And there is even more good news: An article in the journal Nature states that a third of all cancer deaths are totally preventable “through increased consumption of natural compounds” which prevent cell duplication and induce apoptosis (cancer cell suicide). Continue reading

Why An Alkaline Approach Can Successfully Treat Cancer

In the 1930’s, an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer. This treatment approach is not well known because it is considered alternative or experimental – or even dangerous – by the medical and scientific community and hence has been referenced primarily in obscure publications outside the mainstream press.

All of the sudden your world dramatically changes and you just really really HOPE it is just a nightmare from where you will wake up soon. Continue reading

Living in the Country Reduces Risk of Dying from Cancer by 29%

There’s something to be said for old-fashioned doctors

Living in a rural area has a multitude of benefits – cleaner air, less noise, and more relaxing surroundings, just to name a few. If you’re fighting cancer from a rural area of the country, your location may also boost your odds of survival quite significantly, research shows (though it may be because of the type of general practitioners (GPs) you’re more likely to find in the country).

She Turned 2 Simple Ingredients Into a Cure For Cancer…

Dr. Johanna Budwig was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine six times, meaning that we should treat her work with respect. During her career (she died in 2003, at the age of 95), Dr. Budwig cured 90% of her cancer patients. She cured all types of cancer permanently by using non-toxic ingredients which don’t cause any side-effects. Due to her amazing success, Dr. Budwig became the greatest enemy to the pharmaceutical and nuclear industries. They have been suppressing her work ever since early 1950, which is the reason why most of us are not familiar with the Budwig Protocol. Continue reading

Spider peptides battle superbugs and cancer

Antibiotics are increasingly losing effectiveness against certain pathogens; now scientists have found a bacteria-killing spider peptide that could help remedy this trend.

As antibiotic resistance rises and fears over superbugs grow, scientists are looking for new treatment options. One area of focus is antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which could someday be an alternative to currently prescribed antibiotics, many of which are becoming increasingly useless against some bacteria. Now, a team reports in ACS Chemical Biology that they have improved the antimicrobial — and anticancer — properties of an AMP from a spider. Continue reading

Life with Cancer and the Steadfast Courage in the Face of Death

When I was first diagnosed (Karen’s Journey) I couldn’t help myself but to feel afraid, somehow I felt shame for feeling this emotion because I thought as a believer of God I had to be strong in every area of my life despite the challenges I may face. After all the word of God says in His perfect love there is no fear. Could it be then that I really didn’t know of His love? Or perhaps, I’m a normal human being with normal emotions? God gave us emotions right? Let me tell you… Yes!! It is normal to feel afraid!! Now, the question is… what do we do in the midst of that emotion? Do we allow it to paralyze us or do we move from it? So many questions and yet, the bible, pastors, therapists, family, relatives, friends, colleagues, will have their own very unique answer to this complex question. Would they all coincide that Steadfast Courage is a must? Continue reading

Updated ~ Dr. V.: 7 ways that stress affects cancer growth

Stress is not a friend to any individual who is on a healing journey with breast cancer. I have written about the connection between, immune impairment and tumor growth on many occasions and so have hundreds of other experts during the last decade.

A study published in September 2015, however, presents a fascinating take on the subject. The joint team, which included both medical and psychological researchers from UCLA, the University of Texas, The University of Iowa and the United States National Cancer Institute, analyzed data which explains how the nervous system, and in particular the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), plays a major part in tumor metastasis when the body is under chronic stress.

The Signs & Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is the ninth most common cancer death in women and the fourth in terms of both men and women. According to recent research the five year survival rate for those diagnosed early is only 8% and this drops to 3% for those diagnosed at an advanced stage. This is mainly due to the fact that this type of cancer is extremely difficult to diagnose and is usually discovered when it’s advanced to an almost incurable stage.

So what is pancreatic cancer? Pancreatic cancer is a disease where the healthy cells within the pancreas stop working as they should, and begin to grow at an uncontrollable rate. As the cancerous cells begin to build up, they form tumors that can begin spreading to other parts of the body. When pancreatic tumors advance to a large enough size, they begin to impact the function of other organs. This can result in digestive problems as the stomach begins to produce too much acid, as well as issues with the liver and bile production. Continue reading

Prostate cancer breakthrough…

Combination of three plant-based nutrients found to MELT AWAY prostate cancer cells

A fascinating new study published in Precision Oncology has found that a combination of three plant-based nutrients “melts away” prostate cancer cells. The study, led by University of Texas researcher Stefano Tiziani, is entitled Combinatorial treatment with natural compounds in prostate cancer inhibits prostate tumor growth and leads to key modulations of cancer cell metabolism.

As described in the University of Texas newsletter, this breakthrough discovery allows people to “starve prostate cancer with what you eat for dinner.” Continue reading

Cancer and Emotions: Is There a Connection?

When I was first diagnosed I thought of why? why me? I went through an emotional roller coaster for sure but after a while of processing what was happening to me I knew I needed to go on a quest for answers. I didn’t know much about cancer then, I just knew that cancer was a deadly disease and I did not want it in my body.

I’m a strong believer of God, a higher power, a source of light that dwells in all of us and I believe this inner light led me to a path of discovery and learning. I truly believe this diagnoses gave me an invitation to live again I just didn’t see it right then. I know a cancer diagnoses can be a very scary thing to process and things can unfold quite rapidly from that moment on but in the midst of all that commotion I knew I needed to seek for answers. Why did I develop cancer? Was it bad luck? Was it my fault? Did I have any responsibility? Well all these questions came back with shocking and revealing answers. Continue reading

First dual-targeting nanoparticles lower cancer’s defenses and attack tumors

A two-in-one approach to immunotherapy involves both blocking cancer cells’ (red) ability to hide and prompting T cells (gray) to attack them.

Cancer immunotherapy has emerged as one of the most exciting directions in cancer treatment. But the approach only works in a fraction of patients and can cause nasty side effects. Now, in the journal ACS Nano, scientists report the development of the first dual-cell targeting immunotherapy nanoparticle that slows tumor growth in mice with different cancers. In their study, up to half the mice in one cancer group went into full remission after the treatment. Continue reading

Creative play: Helping Children Cope with Cancer

Jenni Rogers walks into a room of children and teenagers whose family members are managing cancer, the certified child life specialist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Goodyear, Arizona, knows she has to break the ice quickly and efficiently. “Kids can be fearful in any new environment,” Rogers says. “It can be hard for them to know who to trust, and this can be especially true when a loved one is coping with cancer.”

To help build a connection, Rogers brings along a few “splat eggs.” Upon entering the room, she will hand an egg to one of the teenagers and say, “Go ahead, throw it at the floor.” Confused but interested in the outcome, the teen throws the egg (fake but meant to look like the real deal) at the floor and watches as it splats completely flat and then, laughing, watches as it quickly regains its shape.

Vitamin C and antibiotics could be up to 100 TIMES more effective than drugs at killing cancer cells – without the side effects

Giving an antibiotic followed by vitamin C effectively starves cancer cells of their ‘fuel’, resulting in their death in the lab, a study found.

Antibiotics and vitamin C could be up to 100 times better than drugs at killing cancer cells

Vitamin C and the antibiotic given, known as doxycycline, are both relatively non-toxic and could therefore dramatically reduce the side effects of existing treatments, the researchers said. Continue reading

Coffee Enema: Everything You Need To Know About It

Dr. W.D. Kelley, DDS, MS; woodcarving cir. 1974

Processed foods are bad, I’m not talking about taste but what they are capable of doing to our health. Let’s face it; processed foods taste delicious. But what makes them taste good tends to be the addition or excess of sugar, sodium, and fat.

The excess of sugar, sodium, and fat often leads to obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and poor digestive health. These foods activate the reward centre in our brains which often leads to more cravings for these processed foods.

Keeping that in mind, most of these foods also consists of various additives. These additives range from preservatives, dyes, flavour and texture enhancers to so much more. In turn, these poor dieting habits and other unhealthy habits such as alcohol consumption and chlorinated drinking water causes a buildup of toxin in the colon.

Over time, the build-up of toxins causes your colon to become unhealthy and become less efficient in expelling waste. As a result, fecal matter is deposited along the walls of your colon. Some of these fecal matters can stay in your colon for months or even years. Continue reading

Amish girl who fled United States to escape forced chemotherapy is now cancer-free

Some might call it a “miracle,” but alternative and holistic medicine healers aren’t really surprised to learn that a 12-year old Amish girl is now cancer-free — after her doctors testified in court just six months ago that she would be dead by now if her family were permitted to refuse her chemotherapy.

As reported by the Medina Gazette, of Medina County, Ohio, Maurice Thompson, head of the libertarian non-profit group 1852 Center for Constitutional Law, said young Sarah Hershberger now shows no signs of being stricken with cancer at all and appears to be healthy. Continue reading

Switzerland Completely Abolished Mammography Screenings

Here’s Why You Should Probably Never Get One

In 2013, the Swiss Medical Board, an independent health technology assessment initiative, was requested to prepare a review of mammography screening. The team of medical professionals included a medical ethicist, a clinical epidemiologist, a pharmacologist, an oncologic surgeon, a nurse scientist, a lawyer, and a health economist. Two of those members, Nikola Biller-Andorno, M.D. Ph. D. and Peter Juni, M.D, opened up about the project in the New England Journal of Medicine.

They said: “As we embarked on the project, we were aware of the controversies that have surrounded mammography screening for the past 10-15 years. When we received the available evidence and contemplated its implications in detail, however, we became increasingly concerned.” Continue reading

Two Simple Kitchen Cancer Treatments Used Successfully to Beat Cancer

Vernon Johnston

There are some folks who know the truth of chemo drugs’ toxicity and will do whatever it takes to avoid a therapy that many do not survive, whether they have medical insurance or not. Two such persons were Vernon Johnston and Ann Cameron.

Both were diagnosed with cancer, and both took paths few would dare under the circumstances. The pressure is great to succumb to conventional medical treatments.

There are dietary treatments under supervision, however, that have much higher success rates with no serious side effects. Continue reading

Top 10 Signs of Colon Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 140,000 men and women will be diagnosed with some form of colorectal cancer this year. In fact, the most common form of colorectal cancer is colon cancer.

Health professionals often refer to colon cancer as a silent killer. It takes years for the disease to develop and symptoms to manifest. If you are concerned about developing colon cancer, it is essential that you learn to recognize the early symptoms of this frightening disease.

By detecting colon cancer in its early stages, your chances of survival will increase. Continue reading

Time to go nuts!

Almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts and cashews, linked to lower risk of colon cancer

Eating tree nuts, such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts and cashews, may significantly reduce the risk of colon cancer recurrence, a recent study showed. To carry out the study, a team of researchers examined more than 800 patients with stage-III colon cancer. Data from an observational study revealed that patients who ate two ounces or more of all types of nuts on a weekly basis were 42 percent less likely to suffer a colon cancer recurrence than those who did not eat tree nuts. The researchers also found that patients who consumed nuts had a 57 percent lower odds of dying from colon cancer compared with the non-consuming group. Continue reading

Young: The Cause of Cancer

VICTORY…

You would not take your vehicle to a mechanic that could not determine the cause of it not working properly. An important part of being a good mechanic is knowing what causes a particular problem. Without good diagnostics (knowing cause) the mechanic would be just guessing at best what the solution to his mechanical problem might be. I am wary of any mechanic that could not quickly and precisely determine the cause of a certain mechanical problem.

I am wary of any doctor or group of doctors that can not quickly and precisely determine the cause of a physical problem. You can replace a vehicle. It is not possible to replace your human body. Our body is much more valuable than any vehicle. Be most careful of which mechanics (doctors) you allow to work on your body. Continue reading
