Would I, as a doctor, ever expect to meet a miner? As Mark Twain remarked, “A mine is a hole in the ground with a liar at the top”. Luckily, I accepted an invitation to do just that, and discovered there is something new under the sun. This week, how “DIAGNOS”, a Canadian company in Montreal, has developed what’s called “computer assisted retinal analysis (CARA)”. This computer software will save millions of people around the world from blindness due to Type 2 diabetes. So, did a miner become a retinal expert? Continue reading

The evidence against the use of chemotherapy continues to mount, especially if you’re diabetic. Heart damage caused by chemotherapy is worse in cancer patients with metabolic diseases, according to a study presented EuroEcho-Imaging 2016.
The overall contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults is well below 3 percent. Oncologists are now being advised that the toxic treatment has dire consequences for those with metabolic diseases such as diabetes and insulin resistance. Continue reading
The fact that there is a greater incidence today of Alzheimer’s disease than in previous centuries has not gone unnoticed by some observers who seek to account for its increased presence among the aging, one that occurs at great personal cost and with grave consequences for families and loved ones. A spiritual view of the inner world of Alzheimer’s disease casts light on its meaning and purpose, and the inner reorganization taking place as outer functioning diminishes.
The fact that there is a greater incidence today of Alzheimer’s disease than in previous centuries has not gone unnoticed by some observers who seek to account for its increased presence among the aging, one that occurs at great personal cost and with grave consequences for families and loved ones.

The finding radically alters the view that cancer cells spread only at late stages of cancer.
Researchers found that even before cancer is diagnosed, breakaway cancer cells head off to infiltrate other bodily organs.
They may lie dormant in other parts of the body for years before starting to grow.
But because they split from the original cancer cells very early on they may not respond to the same treatment as the tumour – as may have mutated so much in the intervening time it is in effect a different cancer. Continue reading
Expert says new findings confirm the metal plays a role in the devastating brain disease
There has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease for half a century or more. However, without definite proof, there is still no consensus in the scientific community about the role of this known neurotoxin in this devastating brain disease.
The latest research from my group, published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, makes this link even more compelling. In my view, the findings are unequivocal in their confirmation of a role for aluminium in some if not all Alzheimer’s disease. Continue reading
… and You’ve Probably Ignored Them
Did you know that over 90% of American homes regularly use microwave ovens for meal preparation?
Microwave ovens pulse electromagnetic waves through food, exciting the molecules and causing them to move, vibrate and heat up as they respond to the microwave radiation.
It is a device called a Magnetron in the microwave oven that produces wave energy. This wave energy converts polarity of molecules from positive to negative. Continue reading

A few months back you couldn’t watch the news without hearing about the Swine Flu. Health agencies began issuing all sorts of warnings, and even my own place of employment hung flyers up advising us how to avoid contracting this strain of influenza.
We first began hearing about the Swine Flu in the April/May 2009 time period when it was reported that 168 people in Mexico had died from this strain of the flu. That number was later revised to 16, after it was found the others had died from other causes.
Normally it takes between a year to a year and a half to develop a vaccine after a specific virus has been identified. Yet in May of 2009 the “seed culture” for the Swine Flu was given to pharmaceutical companies, and now Baxter International Inc. states that they will have a vaccine for the Swine Flu ready by the time the fall flu season breaks out.
Am I the only one who finds that bit of news a bit fishy? Continue reading
Time magazine starts and essay written by Vice President Joe Biden on cancer saying, “Every day, thousands of Americans hear the dreaded “c word” from their doctor. I know the fear and the numbness that sets in with the cancer of a loved one. What happens next can make the difference between life and death. If there’s a treatment that can help, there’s hope. But for some people, hope is a clinical trial that will ultimately determine whether a new therapy can slow or stop their cancer.”
Have you called your daughter by your wife’s name or your son by his brother’s name? Have you misplaced your car keys or forgotten where you parked at the mall?
If you worry these might be signs of significant memory loss or the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, which causes a slow deterioration in memory and reasoning skills, fear not, experts said.
Not all memory lapses are created equal. Continue reading
At least 86% of all cancer conditions could be adequately treated and/or prevented by diet and pancreatic enzymes.
Cancer is a symptom of inadequate and deficient protein metabolism. The real problem is protein metabolism, not cancer. Cancer is only a symptom telling those who would listen that their protein metabolism is in very serious trouble. Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy only treat the symptoms of cancer.

Oncology nurse and mother-of-two writes moving apology to her patients after being diagnosed with cancer herself
A mother-of-two and oncology nurse has admitted that she ‘didn’t get it’ until she was diagnosed with cancer herself.
Lindsay Norris, from Kansas, was diagnosed with stage three Rectal Adenocarcinoma in September after the birth of her second child.
The 33-year-old, who is currently in the first stage of treatment, wrote a moving blog post in which she said being diagnosed herself has transformed her understanding of what it is like to live with the disease. Continue reading
The news of Michael Buble’s three-year-old son being diagnosed with liver cancer brought back flashbacks from my childhood; you could say that I became a naturopathic doctor because of cancer.
As a 10-year-old child, I stood before the coffin of my 10-year-old cousin Linda – she had died from cancer. There are experiences where one encounter can shape your life, and Linda’s death shaped mine. How could this be, a 10-year-old dying from cancer? We just played together and now her play was gone. I made a vow to myself that day that I would try to change this from happening, and as a child I began studying alternative medicine and continued this pursuit my entire life, specifically anti-aging and chronic disease treatments dealing with cancer and recognizing a connection between nutrition and the disease structure. Continue reading
They tell us chemotherapy saves lives, boosts long-term survival rates and does not damage healthy cells. All these statements by the cancer industry are false. Poison kills indiscriminately– always has and always will. While damaging healthy cells, chemotherapy also triggers them to secrete a protein that sustains tumour growth and resistance to further treatment. That’s right…chemotherapy will actually boost cancer growth and cancer treatment is the leading cause of secondary cancers.
Can consuming specific herbs and spices help your body fight cancer or prevent its onset? Thanks to some potent properties within nature, herbs and spices can really help you to combat various disease and illness, including cancer.
Listed are 11 herbs and spices that can tackle cancer cells and keep your body healthy and strong. Continue reading
The traditional Japanese and Mediterranean diets are often considered to be the healthiest in the world, with proven links to increased life expectancy. A number of studies in recent years have confirmed that both diets are directly linked to a reduced risk of numerous diseases. So what’s the secret?
Both diets couldn’t be more different when it comes to ingredients, preparation and flavour, but they both share the same key nutrients which can help us to live longer and healthier lives. Whether it’s ramen or paella, hummus or sushi, the Japanese and Mediterranean diets are both packed full of the same essential goodness we need every day. And they’re both delicious! Continue reading
Not much media attention has been given to work-related stress even though it has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. It is one of the biggest stressors we have, however, and can lead to many dis-eases, including cancer.
The Trickle-Down Response of Stress
Chronic stress does its damage mainly through the hormone cortisol. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands through signals from the hypothalamus and pituitary (the H-P-A axis). Cortisol levels “spike” when the brain perceives a threat to the body (whether that threat is real or imagined). By kicking in the “fight or flight” response, the brain literally “turns off” many functions of the immune system in order to send energy where it is needed in the moment for survival. After all, what is the point of producing white blood cells when you are being chased by a lion?
…and how GMOs could be ‘bio-weapons’
Are you eating America’s left-over chemical warfare to be used as agricultural poison on our food supply?
“Between 1962 and 1971, US military forces sprayed millions of gallons of herbicides over South Vietnam. Agent Orange accounted for much of the total sprayed.” ~ NAS Press Release, July 28, 1993.
The legacy of Agent Orange and Monsanto’s attempt to defoliate the hiding places of the Viet Cong is still apparent in modern Vietnam, but how those chemicals are being used now, in the aftermath of war, should be even more chilling to the observant individual. Continue reading
Paleo. Mediterranean. 80/10/10. Raw, vegan, gluten-free. With so many different diet options out there, figuring out which one is best for you can be overwhelming.
Proponents of each diet will say that their nutritional program is the very best one, but the reality is that everyone’s body is unique and that no single diet could possibly be a perfect fit for everyone.
The ideal diet for you is one that eliminates foods to which you have a sensitivity or allergy, and also includes a range of nutritious foods that suit your tastes, lifestyle and health needs. By figuring out which foods you should avoid and which ones to keep, you’ll be able to create a personalized program that will be a sustainable lifestyle instead of a passing fad. Continue reading
The 57-year-old, from Alabama, was hospitalized feeling shaky, with tingling and numbness in his right arm and leg.
A CT scan revealed he had suffered a small but life-threatening brain hemorrhage.
Surgeons at the University of Alabama at Birmingham stroke center managed to treat the unidentified man’s symptoms, however, he continued to report tingling, numbness, and shakiness months after his attack, according to the report published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine.

Study finds first ever link between the disease and gut microbes
Parkinson’s disease may start in the gut, groundbreaking new research suggests.
Scientists have found the first ever conclusive link between gut microbes and the development of Parkinson’s-like movement disorders in mice. They managed to alleviate the symptoms using antibiotic treatment.
The discovery, published today in the journal Cell, could overhaul medical research and treatment of Parkinson’s. Continue reading
One of the most important organs in the body is the liver, and when it’s working as it should, it cleans the blood of toxins, aids in the digestion of food and helps fight off infection. In addition, the liver has the ability to regenerate when it has been damaged, as in trauma, replacing old tissue with new. Continue reading
Did you know that there are over 700 different strains of bacteria that could potentially call your mouth their home? Thankfully, the average person only houses around 50 to 75 of them and only a few of these strains would be considered “bad.” The overabundance of those harmful bacteria can do more than harm your teeth and gums.
In fact, several research studies conducted over the last decade have made the connection between periodontal disease (periodontitis and chronic inflammatory gum disease are other names it goes by) and specific kinds of cancer, including Breast Cancer.
… without Surgery, Chemotherapy, or Radiation
“In our time there will never be a cure for heart disease or for cancer because there’s just too much money in it for the elite. Between the AMA, the hospitals, pharmaceutical and drug manufacturers, the money wheel never stops turning – and those who suffer needlessly are bankrupted.” – Dr. William D. Kelley
In this updated and greatly expanded book, Dr. William D. Kelley teaches that, not only is there a recognized cure for cancer – but that cancer is preventable! Continue reading
The terms alkalinity and acidity will be familiar to everyone who has taken a high school chemistry class. Now this concept is being applied to the human diet, and it’s shedding some light on the right foods to eat if you want to avoid health problems and keep your body in balance. Continue reading
Nutritionist reveals how the cooking method can destroy the health benefits of your five-a-day
As hard as we try, it can be difficult to eat your five-a-day, everyday – but even if you do achieve this goal, your diet is probably still not as healthy as it could be.
And that’s all down to the way many of us cook our veggies – which can ruin the health benefits that are otherwise contained in our favourite superfoods. So if you’re boiling your vegetables, stop at once. Continue reading
A major study about the best way to treat early-stage breast cancer reveals that “precision medicine” doesn’t provide unambiguous answers about how to choose the best therapy.
“Precision doesn’t mean certainty,” says David Hunter, a professor of cancer prevention at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
That point is illustrated in a large study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, involving decisions about chemotherapy.
As is true for many cancers, breast cancer responds best to treatment when it is caught early, before it has spread throughout the body. Dr. Fatima Cardoso, the study’s lead author and a breast cancer specialist at the Champalimaud Clinical Center in Lisbon, Portugal, says that creates a conundrum for doctors and patients alike. Continue reading
Eating carrots, kale and sweet potatoes could prevent dementia in older adults, new research suggests.
Consuming the compounds that give plants and vegetables their vibrant colours can bolster brain functioning in older adults.
Those who had lower levels of carotenoids in their system had to rely on more brain power to complete memory-orientated tasks, scientists found. The powerful compounds can be found in a range of colourful vegetables and are known to improve cognitive ability. Continue reading
