Prostate Issues

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Also known as "Enlarged Prostate," this seems to be an unfortunate by-product of aging. Although this is not a cancerous diagnosis, it does increase a man's susceptibility to develop Prostate Cancer. Switching your diet to consuming only plant-based, whole foods, as well as maintaining a regular exercise routine, will help prevent the prostate cancer eat a low-fat, high fiber diet maintain a healthy weight limit or avoid coffee & alcohol Decongestants & Antihistamines can increase BPH symptoms do Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles Chemical-based prescriptions have negative side-effects that reduce sex drive.

Functional Medicine: Looking for Root Causes

What is "Functional Medicine"? It's the most comprehensive type of health care! Why? Because the doctors who practice Functional Medicine treat each person as an individual. Forget about "one size fits all"! Whatever your condition, these Doctors will take the steps necessary to figure out the root cause of your problem. And once they find the cause(s), treatment will include dietary adjustments best suited for your genetic makeup. Since nutrition plays a big part in everyone's health, what can YOU do to help figure out your Ailment? Functional Medicine is a wonderful hybrid! Functional Medicine is Naturopathic medicine combined with the latest scientific research. But this is not a new concept; it was created by Jeffery Bland, M.D., in 1990. It is based on the theory that [...]

The Truth About Cancer – Part 3

"Cancer-Killing Viruses, Cancer Stem Cells, GMO's, Juicing & Eating the Rainbow" To re-iterate the message from the previous 2 episodes, Chemotherapy & standard therapies have no effect on cancer stem cells, rather, the cancer just metastasizes and regrows stronger and more resistant against standard treatments. many natural products available from Mother Nature contain anti-cancer compounds that target cancer stem cells Turmeric Resveratrol Green Tea Catechins Berberin controls insulin Flavonols turn off inflammation & initiate apoptosis (the process where cancer cells commit suicide) they ONLY kill cancer cells while making our healthy cells stonger stop inflammation and you stop cancer Wheat Grass (4-8oz/day) Raw Vegetable/Fruit juicing: people have actually expelled tumours from their bodies after a 5 day juice fast: the juice starts working in your [...]

Live and Dry Blood Analysis for Optimal Health

June 14th is "World Blood Type Awareness Day".  Do you know your blood type?  Have you ever thought about a possible correlation between your blood type and your state of health?  How certain foods may be beneficial while others may be detrimental to your health, depending on your blood type? The idea of getting my blood analyzed to find out what was going on in my cells and to get professional advice on how I needed to change my diet to get my system balanced definitely appealed to me.  So I got a blood typing & analysis done by Lorraine and now know what is going on in my body and what I should do about it.  It only makes sense to deal with your [...]

The Truth About Cancer – Part 2

"Cancer Facts & Fictions, Breast Cancer, Hormones, Skin Cancer & Essential Oils" Here are my notes from watching this episode: 70% of the immune system is in the digestive tract Cancer cells never die: they multiply & invade our organs.  This is called metastasis which is the spreading of cancer due to compromised immune systems. 18% of cancer is caused by infection cancer is NOT genetic.  You need to deal with "epigenetics" (the software controls the hardware) we can change our gene expression by what we eat mammograms cause breast cancer by exposing the breast to radiation over 1.3 million women were over-diagnosed with breast cancer from mammograms Thermography is a great option for breast-cancer detection without the health risks of mammograms for more info [...]

The Truth About Cancer – Part 1

I started watching this 9 part series by Ty Bollinger and found it to be incredibly informative about the whole cancer business.  Back in 1998, a friend of mine expressed her opinion that the government really didn't want to find a cure for cancer.  I thought that was insane!  What do you mean they don't want to find a cure for this terrible disease that is devastating so many lives?  It made no sense that all the money going into research every year was not dedicated to finding some miracle cure.  How naive I was...  But my friend's statement had planted a seed in the back of my mind that got me thinking, questioning and learning about cancer, illnesses in general and the body's amazing [...]

Health Care or Disease Management?

Join the Food Revolution! To reiterate what John Robbins & Ocean Robbins already stated on "The Food Revolution Network" website, our society now revolves around disease management, not Health Care.  But we can change that! There's a steady shift that is slowly but surely taking place in our world today. All you have to do is take over the driver's seat of your two-legged vehicle! On your own, you can maintain or reclaim your health which will provide you with quality of life. And collectively, choosing healthy foods over drugs will create the changes that need to take place on a global scale. We can create our own health care!  Don't be discouraged because you have NOTHING to lose except your health! Who do You [...]

Alzheimer’s

For anyone suffering from this terrible disease and those who love them, here is some promise and hope to find a cure. February 23, 2016 An UPDATED Note from Dr. Mary Newport It has been nearly 8 years since Steve improved with coconut oil. He improved very significantly and steadily the first year and remained stable for 2 more years. He began having seizures in summer 2013 starting with a head injury from a fall and did not fully recover. In spite of this serious setback, I feel it was well worth the extra quality time that we had together as a family. Source: Untitled Document

The Human Experiment Movie Review (2015) | Roger Ebert

This is a no-frills documentary that interviews people who's medical conditions are believed to be directly related to the chemicals included in our everyday products, many of which are unregulated yet ever-present in our lives.   “The Human Experiment” starts out by sketching in the range of these phenomena via interviews with people who’ve had medical problems that are thought to be chemically related and doctors who’ve been studying them. The narrative soon enough turns to the economic and political forces behind the overall situation. Source: The Human Experiment Movie Review (2015) | Roger Ebert
