A Miner Will Save Millions from Blindness

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

Growing Incidence of Cardiotoxicity and Heart Damage After Chemotherapy

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 Inner World of Alzheimer’s, It’s Meaning and Purpose

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.

Breast cancer cells start spreading to other parts of the body long before a tumour is even detected

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

Aluminium DOES cause Alzheimer’s

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

These Diseases Are All Caused by Microwave Ovens

… 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

You’re Not Gonna Stick Any Needle In Me!

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

Conquering Cancer

cancer_02Time 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

86% of All Cancers Could Be Controlled and/or Prevented By Diet and Pancreatic Enzymes

VICTORY_cvr_webAt 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.

Alternative Cancer Treatments With Positive Results and Generic-Drug Probe to Be Filed by Year-End

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.

c_cellsAs 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.

What The Cancer Industry Does Not Want You To Know About Chemotherapy and Radiation

chemotreatmentThey 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.

Dr. V.: Is Your Work Stress Increasing Your Breast Cancer Risk?

The matador is in a very high stress job situation and says to his doctor, "I've been feeling a lot of work related stress".

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
breast_testChronic 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?

Chilling: How Monsanto’s Agent Orange Is Still Used Today

…and how GMOs could be ‘bio-weapons’

us-government-finally-admits-agent-orange-poisoned-troopsAre 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

Studies Find: Periodontal Disease Linked to Breast Cancer

periodontaldisease_0Did 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.

Why you should NEVER boil your vegetables

Nutritionist reveals how the cooking method can destroy the health benefits of your five-a-day

Boiling vegetables could be eradicating up to 50 per cent of the vegetable's nutrients, according to nutritionist Tracy Lesht

Boiling vegetables could be eradicating up to 50 per cent of the vegetable’s nutrients, according to nutritionist Tracy Lesht

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

By testing tumors, researchers hoped to identify women who could avoid chemotherapy without increasing their risk of a cancer recurrence. ~ Voisin/Phanie/Science Source

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.
