The Top 10 Health Breakthroughs of 2008

(NaturalNews) This year marks a major turning point in the theory of wellness and the prevention of disease. The drug-based paradigm of Western medicine is crumbling under the weight of its own massive fraud. New technology is proving how nutrients interact at the fundamental gene level to promote health and prevent disease. The discoveries are occurring at a breakneck pace – these are exciting times. 

In the face of an obesity epidemic and the early onset of the diseases of aging in even young Americans, there shines a bright ray of hope. It is there for anyone who chooses to inform themselves and then take effective actions to better themselves. The aging clock can be slowed – and in many cases reversed. It is the dawn of a new era.

The following is a list of the Top 10 health breakthroughs of 2008. I know there are many other possible candidates for this Top 10 list. This is my version of the highlights that made 2008 special.

#10 – The Mayo Clinic Places One Foot in the Door of the Real World

Miracles never cease and it appears that the Mayo Clinic is trying to enter the 21st century with at least a finger on the nutritional pulse of reality. In May they put out a press release stating that "Thousands of research studies have documented how the oils known as omega-3 fatty acids can benefit the cardiovascular system, particularly among people diagnosed with coronary artery disease…The most compelling evidence for the cardiovascular benefit provided by omega-3 fatty acids comes from three large controlled trials of 32,000 participants randomized to receive omega-3 fatty acid supplements containing DHA and EPA….These trials showed reductions in cardiovascular events of 19 percent to 45 percent. Overall, these findings suggest that intake of omega-3 fatty acids, whether from dietary sources or fish oil supplements, should be increased, especially in those with or at risk for coronary artery disease."

The breakthrough is not that fish oils prevent and treat heart disease; we've known that for years. The breakthrough is that the vitamin-and-alternative-health-hating Mayo Clinic is telling the world to take fish oil supplements to prevent heart disease. That signifies the initial stages of a paradigm shift of magnitude.

#9 – Bone Health Is One Key to Longevity

Bones can no longer be thought of only in terms of fracture risk and osteoporosis. Bones are constantly giving birth to new cells and these cells play vital roles in metabolism and immunity. For example, when bone cells get inflamed not only does this promote excess bone loss it directly causes fat cells to multiply in white adipose tissue – which clearly explains why women gain weight after menopause as well as the key to stopping the problem. 

The highlight study of the year was a detailed gene analysis performed on one of the world's healthiest older men (he was 113 at the time, recently passing away at 114). Researchers expected to find genetic advantages enabling him to live a long life. Much to their surprise, he didn't have any "better genes" at all – he had better bones! And the reason he had better bones was because he ate a diet containing fresh fruit and vegetables (bone anti-inflammatory nutrients) and stayed very active (stimulating bone health).

Needless to say, disastrous bone drugs were not part of his plan. 

#8 – Grape Seed Extracts Stop Alzheimer's Plaque

This year's research showed that "normal" brain aging is quite an abnormal process; with the loss of mental capability, intelligence, and memory directly relating to how many plaque-like brain tangles occur. At the far end of the spectrum is Alzheimer's disease – a problem with brain plaque overwhelming healthy brain function. However, there are a thousand shades of grey on the way to this problem, and each step in the wrong direction is marked by ever-increasing levels of brain plaque.

Red grape seed extracts showed that they could stop brain plaque from forming. The new research showed that brain cells must first be punched in the nose by some form of stress, get inflamed, and then begin to express certain genes that promote plaque formation. Red grape seed extracts simply stop this process from occurring. Not only that, they are powerful protection for the lining of your arteries – helping to stop plaque formation there as well.

#7 – Vitamin D for Anything and Everything

A major question during 2008 was: "Is there anything that vitamin D does not help?" Vitamin D's role in bone metabolism is well known. Its role as a hormone is less well known but very important. As a bewildering array of breaking science now shows, vitamin D is a gene-regulating super nutrient. It is vital for efficient immune function, prevention of autoimmune problems, healthy metabolism, proper thyroid function, prevention of type I and type II diabetes, prevention of heart disease, cancer prevention, and improved nervous system health and mood.

The sunshine vitamin is indeed a wonder nutrient. The American Cancer Society sits around with major mud on its face, doing everything in its power to prevent people from getting vitamin D – a problem made worse in thewinter months when none is available for most of the U.S. And as usual, our bumbling government won't let all Americans know that they need 1200 IU to 2000 IU of vitamin D per day, especially in the winter, to help prevent major health problems.

#6 – Resveratrol Turns Back the Clock

An explosion in resveratrol science hit the front pages of the news around the world, as Big Pharma spent millions trying to make resveratrol drugs. The Big Pharma spending is interesting for several reasons:

1) Just imagine how much we could learn if our government would spend money studying all major nutrients in widespread use.

2) The resveratrol nutrient that is already on the market will end up working better than any drug made.

Resveratrol activates a gene called SIRT1, which has a profound disease prevention and anti-aging effect. SIRT1 is normally activated by calorie restriction in times of famine. However, in today's world of excess foodconsumption it will be a major tool to prevent and treat the coming obesity epidemic and all its health complications.

It is already clear that the supplement works best when you are on a good diet, as too much food simply turns off SIRT1. Its value during a diet is that it helps your muscles work better on fewer calories so that you can actually lose weight while feeling great.

Even if you aren't overweight, the other main point is that resveratrol will help you live longer – a fact borne out by the lifespan in various regions of France that have the highest content of resveratrol in their red wine.

#5 – The Digestive Genome Marks the New Frontier of Health

The mapping of the human genome was a monumental accomplishment that has yielded unexpected information. As scientists began to unravel the mysteries of how the human genome is controlled, they quickly found that many of the signals controlling health were coming from the foreign contents within your digestive tract. Like the space race to the moon, the new health frontier is now the genomes of the trillions of foreign cells that comprise your digestive tract.

A treasure trove of information has already been uncovered. Many of these foreign cells are vital to health and have both a friendly and unfriendly role depending on which of their genes are turned on. A case in point is H.pylori and Candida albicans, both of which are considered unfriendly and both of which are normal inhabitants of your digestive tract and need to be in a friendly condition for optimal digestive health and the prevention of digestive disease. In fact, your personal "foreign cell signature" directly influences your own immune tissue to form along the lining of your digestive tract. It also plays a large role in how much inflammation you experience elsewhere in your body – including your joints and back. Friendly flora is vital to maintaining a state of balance that promotes health.

Decades of damage from the overuse of antibiotics, high sugar diets, junk food, chemicals in the diet, pesticides in the diet, genetically modified toxic food, and excess alcohol can finally be seen for the disease-producers they really are. It will be a long time before your doctor gives you any meaningful advice on this subject, since their profession has helped create an epidemic of poor digestive health that in the light of this emerging science is proving to be a major contributing factor to multiple diseases – not just digestive-related problems.

#4 – The Changing World of Fat, Cholesterol, and Heart Disease

Those basing health decisions on cholesterol numbers and concepts of good and bad cholesterol have been left in the Stone-Age dust. HDL, or "good" cholesterol, can have its proteins oxidized and easily become "bad" just like LDL. Cholesterol itself turns out to be a vital player in the structure of nerve receptors, and its levels are reduced when taking medication to lower numbers of LDL. Cholesterol fitness, like muscle fitness, is the new concept of cholesterol health that supports true cardiovascular health.

A huge breakthrough occurred this year when it was demonstrated for the first time that fat accumulating around the outside of arteries was the key signal of impending cardiovascular disease. This fat, which builds up in direct proportion to your waistline expanding, was previously thought to be part of the structure of arteries and not play a functional role. New scientific tools have shown that it accumulates in excess, recruits inflammatory immune cells to live in its newly expanded neighborhood, and they generate inflammation into the arteries that knocks out friendly nitric oxide causing blood pressure to rise and simultaneously generates massive free radical damage that injures LDL and HDL cholesterol and sets the plaquing process in motion.

This is made worse if blood levels of triglycerides stay high during the day – which is caused by eating meals that are too large, snacking between meals, and not exercising. 

#3 – How Much BDNF is In Your Bank Account?

Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF) may well be the molecule of the year. BDNF is key to keeping your nerve cells alive and stimulating the growth of new nerve cells. Since your nerve cells are important for regulating everything else, keeping them in top working condition not only means that your mind will stay sharp it means you are likely to live longer and healthier.

This year scientists proved the immense value of having adequate BDNF for virtually any issue of nerve and brain related health. If your supplies run low then you cannot tolerate stress properly, you are more likely to be or become depressed, your brain is prone to excess inflammation, and you are set on a path of decline. Conversely, having adequate BDNF helps you keep up with the demands in your life. It means that you have the potential to keep your mind and nerves in good working condition. 

For example, when you have adequate BDNF then old memories don't bother you or come back to haunt you at the most inopportune times. Having adequate BDNF may be a key, along with being a good person, to maintaining healthy relationships.

This year scientists demonstrated that fish oil, blueberries, curcumin, and pantethine all help boost the production of BDNF. 

#2 – Run for Your Life

Running is now proven to be the single activity with the most bang for the longevity buck. Early in the year papers emphasized the importance of running in human evolution. It was also found that running is the best exercise to boost levels of BDNF. It was proven that running can rejuvenate your heart and even brisk walking can effectively lower your blood pressure.

The highlight of the year was the result of a 20-year study on running over the age of 50. It found that those who ran cut their risk of premature death in half! No drug can do that.

It also found that runners had less cardiovascular disease, fewer cancer deaths, less cognitive decline, and better immunity – and their joints were in good condition.
Running turns on gene signals associated with health – it's that simple. The choice is yours.

#1 – Thyroid Health is for Everyone

A startling array of thyroid-related studies have shown that even a slightly off thyroid sends you down a path of poor health. While thyroid issues are often associated with obesity, thyroid problems affect normal weight and underweight people as well. One of the important points to grasp about the emerging science is that these are not thyroid problems that can be treated with medication – as there is usually adequate thyroid hormone. This information is about thyroid stressors such as common pollution like PCBs, perchlorate in the food supply, excess food consumption, and general emotional stress – to name of few. 

This year scientific studies showed a sluggish thyroid system was directly related to increased mortality, fatal heart disease, disturbed heart rhythms, elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, lack of coordination, risk of breast cancer, mood problems, glaucoma, and Alzheimer's risk.

You may wonder why so many issues can be associated with a type of thyroid problem that doctors don't even see as a problem. The answer is that your thyroid system sets the metabolic pace of your body, like the drummer in a band sets the tempo. If that tempo is too sluggish then everything else works less well, which means wear and tear accumulates at a faster rate.

You can fix sluggish thyroid problems by eating a cleaner diet, regular exercise, and using nutrients that facilitate healthy thyroid function – especially by enhancing the conversion of T4 to T3 and by providing adequate thyroid-related antioxidants. 

The take home message from this year's thyroid news is that you should do everything possible to keep your entire thyroid system working at an optimal level of health. There is no comfort to be found in being "good for your age." The only thing that really matters is optimal function – which is the foundation for your future health.

The era of true anti-aging nutrition is upon us. There are no quick fixes – but there is a path to follow that is now backed by considerable science. Hop on – enjoy quality of health – for a very long time.

Another Reason to Get Enough Sleep: Keep Parasites Away

(NaturalNews) Scientists have long puzzled over the reasons sleep is so important. Brian Preston from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and an international team of researchers just published research that backs up their theory sleep improves the function of the immune system --and it may specifically protect animals from being overrun by parasite infections.

According to a study just published in the journal  BMC Evolutionary Biology , species of animals that get substantial sleep not only have a greater concentration of immune cells in their blood, they also are able to stave off more parasite  infections  than other creatures. "We suggest that sleep fuels the  immune system . While awake, animals must be ready to meet multiple demands on a limited energy supply, including the need to search for food , acquire mates, and provide parental care. When asleep, animals largely avoid these costly activities, and can thus allocate resources to the body`s natural defenses," Dr. Preston said in a media statement.

The scientists studied sleep in mammals, analyzed the animals` immune system measurements, and looked at numbers of infections with  parasites . They found mammals that have evolved to have longer sleep cycles have more circulating immune cells and fewer infections with parasites like intestinal worms.

So what do these findings have to do with human  health ? Possibly, a lot. The researchers conclude: "Given the declines in human sleep durations that have occurred over the past few decades, there is a clear need for studies that further clarify the immunological significance of sleep."

Bottom line: add getting enough sleep to a healthy lifestyle in order to keep your immune system strong and able to fight parasites, which are now throughout the world -- not only in developing countries. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ), around 14 percent of the U.S. population is infected with Toxocara, or internal roundworms, and some 60million people in the United States are likely infected with Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite associated with raw meat and contact with cat feces. In addition, a report on food borne parasites prepared for the Food Research Institute at the University of Wisconsin in 2003 found about two and a half million cases of food and waterborne Giardia lamblia and three million cases of Cryptosporidium parvum in the U.S. annually. Both these parasites are transmitted through drinking  water  contaminated with the fecal material of infected persons. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks parasites as among the six most dangerous diseases that infect humans.

Parasites in humans can cause intestinal discomfort, bloating gas and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Although drugs can be prescribed to kill parasites, many herbs and foods have traditionally been used to treat parasite infections . According to the University of Maryland Medical School web site, these include: raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, pomegranates, beets, and carrots, all of which have antiworm properties.

Lack of Sleep Linked to Higher Risk of Catching Colds

Catching a cold? Maybe that's Mother Nature's way of telling you to stay home and get some sleep for a change. A new study conducted at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh has found that people who get fewer than seven hours of sleep a night are 300% more likely to catch colds.

 

This study, however, does not establish a causal relationship between a lack of sleep and catching colds. It more likely points to an underlying health stance by participants, where unhealthy individuals suffer both from suppressed immune systems and sleep disorders at the same time. Healthy people, on the other hand, were able to resist infections while enjoying better-quality sleep.

Resisting colds is quite easy for the nutritionally informed. When your body retains sufficient levels of both vitamin D and zinc, catching common colds is virtually impossible. I haven't caught a cold in more than six years, probably, and most hard-core natural health consumers who live on superfoods and raw foods reports virtually zero colds.

Interestingly, the people who catch colds the most often are those who get flu shots, indicating that flu shots may actually weaken the immune system, making recipients more vulnerable to future infections. It is well documented, by the way, that flu shots -- even if they work -- only protect people against last year's flu strains, not this year's flu. Thus, the whole basis upon which flu shots are promoted is temporally flawed to begin with. Unless you own a time travel machine, that is.

In any case, there's no question that getting eight hours of sleep a night is good for your health (and your immune system), but if you really want to avoid catching colds, probably the most important thing you can do -- especially during the Winter -- is raise your vitamin D levels. That can easily be accomplished by either taking vitamin D supplements (or fish oils) or taking a month-long vacation to Hawaii where you hang out on the beaches and soak up some healing rays.

Just be sure to take astaxanthin and lots of superfood antioxidants for at least 30 days before going, so that you are protected against sunburn. And throw out the sunscreen, folks, unless you want skin cancer from all the chemicals found in sunscreen.

Cancer Industry Raking in Profits on Chemotherapy as Treatme

(NaturalNews) The cost of cancer treatment rose dramatically between 1991 and 2002, sparking fears that many people may be going without the most effective treatment, according to a study conducted by researchers from the National Cancer Institute.

Researchers used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End-Results (SEER) Medicare database to examine the costs of initial cancer treatments in 306,709 breast, colorectal, lung and prostate cancer patients over the age of 65. These treatments included surgery,  chemotherapy , radiation and other hospitalization.

Over the ten-year period studied, the average cost of breast  cancer treatment  increased $4,189 to $20,964. The average cost of treating  prostate cancer  increased $5,435 to $41,134, while the average cost of lung  cancer treatment went up $7,139 to $39,891.

The researchers attributed the increasing cost to an increase in the use of chemotherapy. The introduction of newer, more expensive drugs occurred so recently that it is unlikely to have influenced the numbers in the current study, they said - meaning that the cost of cancer treatment is probably already much higher than the numbers for 2002.

Researchers noted that increasing costs are placing a strain on Medicare and have led to changes in its reimbursement policy. This, in turn, can influence patients' ability to afford the most effective treatment.

"There were changes to Medicare payment policy over the period of this study," said Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, "and they had significant impact on how physicians were reimbursed. The net result is that it may have influenced practice patterns that we are seeing, such as the transition from surgery and radiation therapy for prostate cancer."

The average cost paid for prostate cancer treatment actually decreased slightly ($196) to $18,261, an effect that researchers attributed to the decreasing popularity of expensive surgery.

"Some people are not able to afford [more expensive] treatments," Lichtenfeld said. "The increased use of expensive chemotherapy is having an impact on how we treat  cancer patients ."

CANCER CAN BE AVOIDED!!

AN EXCELLENT ARTICLE TO PASS ON

part3 cancer1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.Dividing Cancer Cell-small   4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.


7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

What I would do if I had cancer... by Angel Rodriguez

I have been asked many times based on my research what would I be doing and taking if I had cancer. This always leads to a long email or a 1 - 2 hour discussion on why I would do or take such things and the overwhelming evidence on why many treatments work.

** Disclaimer - Please note the information written here is not to be taken as any kind or form of advice and a practitioner should always be consulted when treating cancer. This information is solely based on my research of B17 and metabolic therapy and what I would do if I had cancer and should not be viewed as any form of advice.  **

NUTRITION

The most important factor besides a relationship with God is your Diet. What you put into your mouth is what can make all the difference. If I had cancer in regards to Nutrition I would be eating and taking the following:

  • No Meat, No Dairy*, No Sugar.
    • Meat robs and steals your bodies ability to heal itself (refer enzymes section as to why)
    • Dairy another form of animal protein also steals your bodies ability to heal itself. Not to mention dairy today is not what it was 50 years ago, but that's another discussion.
    • No Sugar - This one should be a no brainer. Sugar feeds cancer. Want your cancer to spread and grow - eat lots of sugar.

*No Dairy - The only exception to dairy is cottage cheese based on Dr Budwig's diet mentioned below.

  • Cleanse and Detox - Herbal Dietary Fibre
    • Detoxing my body and taking the Rubbish out is very important and one of the first things to work towards. This would consist of vegetable and fruit juices on an empty stomach to cleanse the Liver but most importantly taking a Dietary Herbal Fiber. Dietary Herbal Fiber is the best product I have been able to find that will totally cleanse the intestines and KILL PARASITES. The removal of Parasites is paramount as most people with cancer will have a parasitic problem unknowingly. Dietary Herbal Powder can repair distorted, twisted, collapsed sick looking colons from build up over the years and other chronic colon illnesses. It has been known to save lives due to fixing colonic related stresses.  Click here to learn more about your colon and this life saving herbal powder.
    • Juicing needs to be first thing in the morning and always on an empty stomach. Vegetable juicing should be the main. Celerey, Carrot, Ginger, beetroot are a few excellent vegetables to use.  MAKE SURE YOU USE ORGANIC PRODUCE IF YOU CAN. It can be cheaper than woolworths or coles if you make the effort. I am up at 4am once a fortnight and buy our ORGANIC PRODUCE from the Organic Markets in Sydney (Back To Eden on Parramatta Rd Homebush)
  • Tea - Sir Jason Winters Tea
    • Sir Jason Winters book "Killing Cancer" is an approx 100 page book and one of the most inspiring true life stories on beating cancer against all odds I have ever read. I met Jason a few years ago in a Sydney talk and for a man now in his eighties, I think he is radiant with health. Basically, after finding himself on his death bed, as a last desperate attempt he and his family travelled to 3 different parts of the world seeking so called ancient cancer cure's they had heard about as a last attempt to treat his cancer. What they found in each country were herbs to be taken as a tea. He took them individually but his body was so toxic due to diet abuse and so much smoking over the years that each tea just had no effect on its own. He got worse, and was ready to die when a last minute desperate decision made him mix all three teas he had made up.  He did not know at the time that three tea's mixed together acted as a catalyst and formed a tea on its own over 100 times stronger than each tea on its own. Basically all Jason did was run a super filter through his blood and cleansed it of all impurities with this tea, and from there he fully recovered and now travels the world telling his story. Red Clover, Sage and a spice tea (don't know which one) is the mix.
    • His book and work on healing cancer have been acknowledged to the point where he has been even Knighted by the Queen! But do the Big Pharmaceuticals care or take note ??  Nope.
    • I would get this tea and drink it 2 - 3 times a day at least 1 hour before or after food.  Gary Samer sells it atwww.sirjasonwinters.com.au  - and Say G'day to Gary for me (Angel Rodriguez).
  • Apricot Kernels and Enzymes
    • Apricot kernels for the last 30 - 40 years have been shown to kill cancer cells. This has been shown many, many times by some of the top Cancer Specialists in the world throughout the years. Just have a read of the section  Has B17 been tested by Modern Medicine  and have a look at 60 year cancer research veteran  Dr Seguira's work. He was, you could say the leading specialist at the time and was asked to put an end to this "Quakery"  His results proved Vitamin B17s effectiveness.
    • I would eat approx 15 -20  apricot kernels at least 3 times a day. My favourite way to eat them is in a smoothie with Vitasoy Rice Milk and Banana, Wolfberries and some honey and muesli in the blender as a smothie. Absolutely delicious!   The Wolfberries help overpower the bitterness of the apricot kernels so you can go a bit heavier on the kernels.
    • ENZYMES - Are absolutely ESSENTIAL if you want to benefit from vitamin B17. You must take some form proteolytic enzyme to break down the protein coating surrounding cancer cells. Dr Beard back in the later 1800s used Enzymes very effectively to treat cancer patients.  Simply put the enzymes knock out the cancer cells first line of defense which is a protein coating and then the body and/or B17 can do its work and kill off the cancer cells.
  • What to Eat - Dr Lorraine Days Diet
    • The best cancer diet I have come across is the one advocated by Dr Lorraine Day. In her two videos/DVDs "Cancer does not scare me anymore" and "You Can't Improve on God" she outlines in detail how she used juices and 80% raw to 20% cooked food diet. The DVDs are an excellent motivational tool so if you can get them. Details where you can buy them appear below.
  • Percys Powder
    • I would take Percys Powder twice a day.
    • Percy Weston, a wonderful Australian who lived to the age of 101 and only recently died peacefully in his sleep is an example that everybody can beat cancer.
    • Healthy, vigorous 100 year old Australian farmer Percy Weston wrote his book "Cancer: Cause and Cure" at age 97. In the closing years of his life he wanted to share the great health truths he has discovered. He recently died peacefully in his sleep in his 101st without any sign of cancer, arthritis or artery disease. Yet in his late 30's he had serious cancer and was bedridden with arthritis.

      Percy writes in the introduction to his book "Everybody can beat cancer without expensive drugs, hospitalisation and doctors, just as I have."

      He later writes, "If I may offer myself as an example, old age need not make senile old cripples out of us."

      When his farm animals were all dying from horrible cancers due to phosphate fertilizers being used by all farmers in his day, he started doing some chemical analysis of his soils. He found his farm soils were very acid and virtually drained of Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Iron, Cobalt, and several other minerals needed for animal and human nutrition. Here at last was cause and effect. (Super-phosphate is manufactured using sulphuric acid and has an acid pH of 3.0.)   With a natural flair for chemistry and science he formulated a mineral powder to supply the missing minerals needed in a healthy diet. As a result he successfully treated himself and his wife later from their cancer.

    • His book and powder are wonderful and a very helpful resource to use. I encourage every cancer sufferer to read his book and get some of his powder. His book and powder can be purchased fromwww.oznatureshop.com
  • Healing Oils of the Bible
    • I would use and apply on my body topically Frankincense and Balsam.
    • The bible contains many treasures when it comes to healing. Two of these treasures found to be very effective in the treatment of tumors and cancer are Frankincense and Balsam. Both these oils are well known for their healing properties. I wont go into detail here but when it comes to cancer Frankincense and Balsam have been scientifically found to overcome cancer.
  • Dr Johanna Budwig Simple cottage cheese and flaxseed oil mixture.
    • Pathologist Dr Johanna budwig for 30 years studied the blood in particular cancer patients blood. She found that every single cancer patient's blood was totally devoid of essential fatty acids (EFA's). So she wondered what would happen if she reintroduced EFA's to cancer patients. In theory if cancer patients improved their diets and introduced EFA's back into their diets in a highly water soluble form then they should improve.  I have read her books and studied some of her work and achievements. Incredible !
    • She worked out by combining the highest quality EFA - flaxseed oil with a sulphur based protein - ie. organic low fat cottage cheese, that if you mix the two together and eat them the flaxseed oil reacts with the sulphur based protein (cottage cheese) to make the EFA water soluble and absorbed almost instantly by the blood. This way was the quickest form to re-introduce EFA's into blood.
    • The results were outstanding. Cancer patients from all over the place given only weeks and months to live were nursed back to health quickly with a simple change in diet and by using Dr Johanna Budwigs simple mix of flaxseed oil and cottage cheese.
  • KISS - Keep It Simple Son
    • Everyone you talk to has an opinion on cancer, so don't take too much information in...... and in such a short time..... It will overwhelm you and look to hard. Keep things SIMPLE.  Anyone of the suggested treatments mentioned above ALONE with a good diet should help you find your health back is what my research has led me to conclude.
    • Therefore it makes sense to me, to view it from a simplistic view and do a little of each one. If I had cancer I would be eating/taking all of the above. There is no need to do each every day, but if you can great. Try and find a balance that works for you - Just KEEP IT SIMPLE.

EXERCISE

  • Get Away from the CITY. Get out in the country or find some kind of rural location and WALK !  Nothing is more energizing or healthful than a 1 hour walk through this beautiful country. Get that fresh air deep into your lungs !!!

WATER

  • Your body has many cries for water. Sometimes you don't realise when you have an ache or are sick your body is crying out for pure, fresh living water. YOU MUST give your body 2 - 3 litres per day of pure soft natural water. THIS DOES NOT MEAN TAP WATER.  God gave us water from natural sources. Thats what you should drink. MANS WATER = Tap Water via copper pipes with excess metals, chlorinated and fluoridated.  Chlorine and fluoride are poisons. I don't care how little we are told is in our  water in parts per million. They are both poisons, end of story. DON'T DRINK Tap water.

SUNSHINE

  • The Beautiful Healing Rays of the Sun occur early morning and late afternoon. So make sure you are getting some sunlight.
    A miracle factory is at work just beneath your skin. And when the ultraviolet rays of the sun touch the skin, the factory sets to work. It is a most marvelous system, and without it you could not remain alive. The Beautiful healing rays of the sun are early in the morning approx (7 -10am) and late in afternoon (4-5pm). Naturally this depends where you live and events like day light savings.  The harmful rays are in the middle of the day.
    • Today we are being told stay out of the sun – its harmful, it causes skin cancer and so forth.
    • Truth is………….We NEED the SUN.  Take a pretty little flower out of the sun and it soon wilts and dies……. We are no different. If you take yourself out of the sun soon you will wilt and die.
    Sunshine regulates many body processes………… lowers high blood pressure, decreases blood cholesterol, lowers excessively high blood sugars, and increases white blood cells.
    Sunlight changes the cholesterol just under the skin into vitamin D which is need for good health.
    Your eyes were made to specifically absorb rays of the sun. God didn’t make us to wear glasses, so for those of you that wear them, try and take them off when your out in the sun.

TEMPERANCE

  • I would try to ensure I make choices according to the law of Temperance

    So What is Temperance ?

  • TEMPERANCE is about self-control. In order to succeed physically, mentally, and morally in life, we must have temperance in regard to things that are Good and ABSTAIN from things harmful.
  • The Bible says, "Every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things." (1 Corinthians 9:25).
  • Moderation – too much of a good thing can be bad for you !
  • True temperance includes moderation in things good as well as abstinence in things harmful.
    • Choose and Refuse to live a life of anxious concern.
    • Worry wears out the life forces. If you cannot solve a problem in five minutes, give it to God in prayer—and then forget it. Later the solutions will come to mind.
    • Sometimes its just good to stop everything and relax and leave your cares to God.   

AIR

  • In order to have good blood, we must breathe well. Full, deep inspirations of pure air, which fill the lungs with oxygen, purify the blood.
  • Good Respiration soothes the nerves; it stimulates the appetite and renders digestion more perfect; and it induces sound, refreshing sleep . . IF an insufficient supply of oxygen is received, the blood moves sluggishly. The waste, poisonous matter, which should be thrown off in the exhalations from the lungs, is retained, and the blood becomes impure. Not only the lungs, but the stomach, liver, and brain are affected. The skin becomes sallow, digestion is retarded; the heart is depressed; the brain clouded; the thoughts are confused; gloom settles upon the spirits; the whole system becomes depressed and inactive, and peculiarly susceptible to disease.
    • A walk, even in the winter, would be more beneficial to health than all the medicine the doctors may prescribe. You will increase your vitality, which is so necessary to health. Your lungs will have needful action, for it is impossible to go out in the bracing air of a winter's morning without inflating the lungs.
      • So its so important to get out into the country and breathe deeply God Given Air.

REST

  • "Come ye apart . . and rest" are the words of Jesus.
  • Are you weary and worn with the routine of everyday life?
  • Rest is what you need; physical rest, mental rest. It is one of God's special healing remedies.
  • Here are some simple principles about rest:

    * One does not always have to sleep in order to rest.

    * Just a change of pace—doing something different—can bring rest to your mind and body.

TRUST IN GOD

  • Love for God - is essential for life and health.
  • Faith in God - is essential for health.
    • We can serve God better in the vigour of health than in the palsy of disease;
    • Therefore we should cooperate with God in the care of our bodies.
  • In order to have perfect health - our hearts must be filled with love and hope and joy in the Lord.

    ** If you have a grudge against someone, or are still angry and holding on to something that someone did to you that you cannot forgive. NOW IS THE TIME TO LET GO.  God will help you forgive them. You cannot get better until you let go of any burdens on your conscience or emotions your hanging unnecessarily to.

    ** If you have wronged someone or hurt someone and have a heavy heart about it. Face it and recover and ask them for forgiveness. It does not matter if they do not forgive you for then that becomes an issue between them and God. You have done your part.  Ask for forgiveness from both God and the person you have wronged. Man may not forgive you but GOD ALWAYS will forgive you!

"Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you."
Ephesians 4:32

God Bless You

Bible Health Principles for an Abundant Life 

One of the most wonderful things about God is the fact that He cares for you! And whether you're rich, poor, black or white, educated or uneducated, God cares for you! He demonstrated His love and care on Calvary, and Jesus said in Matthew 7:11, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" 

While God has an inexpressible desire to see us saved out of this world, He also is interested in our lives here on earth. He desires us to have a good and abundant life! John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." The devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy you. God wants you to have an abundant life! It's amazing that so many choose the devil's ways! God is interested not only in your salvation, but also your physical health! Third John 1:2, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." Just as your spiritual health is important, so is your physical. God promised His people that if they obeyed and followed His ways that they would have the blessings of health and life. Exodus 15:26, "And said, if thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee." 

Now in this promise, it's obvious that laws are involved. What you sow you reap! If a Christian and non-Christian run through a red light and are headed for a wreck, God will not suspend the law of motion to stop the Christian's car while the non-Christian has a wreck. We all must reap what we sow. There's no use in getting mad at God for allowing your new car to get all messed up if you ran a red light! Yet there are a lot of people today who will not follow God's laws of health, and then when they get sick and diseased, they blame God. People say, "Oh why is God allowing me to die of emphysema?" Yet they have smoked like a chimney for 30 years! That's not God's fault. God is reasonable. He says, "If you obey, you will prosper and have no disease." In Psalm 84:11 God says He will withhold "no good thing" from us. Let's illustrate it this way. 

When Mercedes-Benz makes a fine automobile they put it through hundreds of tests. And when all the results come in they publish it in a book called the Owner's Manual. This manual will tell you what oil and gasoline to use, and give you all the information needed to make your Mercedes run at peak performance. Let's imagine you own a fine 300 SD turbo diesel. One day as you drive along you decide you're going to put gas in instead of diesel--it's cheaper, you know, and a higher octane, 95 proof. So you fill it up and drive away. All of a sudden you notice the car has a fever, its temperature is up in the red, and it begins to backfire, get shaky, and after awhile it blows its head. You're stuck on the highway. Soon the car ambulance takes your Mercedes into the car hospital and there they operate on it. After being hung over a few days it comes out fixed, but weaker, and with a big bill to pay. The Mercedes mechanic informs you: "The Owners Manual says to use diesel, not regular gas. Read the book!" 

And friends, today, it's the same way. God has an owners manual. He made the human body and knows what makes it run. But the owners manual (the Bible) has been neglected, and our hospitals are full. Today we have more disease than ever. And now you know why.

Use Effective Natural Home Treatments for a Cough

(NaturalNews) Not too long ago, the most common response to a persistent cough was a trip to the cough syrup aisle at the drug store. Now, with concerns about these drugs on the rise, natural home treatments are highly sought. Fortunately, home treatment for coughing is generally considered both safe and effective, a far cry from the reputation earned by cough syrups.

Suppressing a cough is not really medically necessary in most cases. In fact, coughing is your body's way of clearing mucus and phlegm from the throat, a process that is crucial in preventing and removing infection. Of course, there are times when a cough is just downright annoying. So if you're trying to clear up a cough, whether for a business meeting or just to get some sleep, rest assured there are plenty of time-honored natural remedies available.

A 2007 study showed 2 teaspoons of  honey  at bedtime is as effective as medicinal  cough syrup  for reducing nighttime coughing and improving sleep. This is especially helpful for parents since drug companies have recently advised against the use of cough syrup in children under 4 years. Organic honey made locally is ideal, but for curing a cough almost any kind of honey will do. Just be sure not to give honey to children under the age of 1 year, since at this stage there is a small risk of infant botulism poisoning.

You can get even more relief by stirring a tablespoon of lemon juice into 1/4 cup of honey. This homemade cough syrup will immediately calm your coughing and can be used multiple times throughout your day if necessary. If possible, add a teaspoon of white pepper to the mixture to further ease your cough.

If you want to avoid the sugar in honey, a slice of lemon can also do the trick. Liberally sprinkle salt and pepper over the slice and vigorously suck out the juice. Repeat as often as necessary.

Grapes are known for providing strong cough relief. Their juice can ease a cough while also encouraging the release of congestion, which can shorten the duration of your cough. Raw  grapes  and fresh grape juice are the best way to reap these benefits. You can also simmer a cup of raisins in 1/2 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of honey. Stir frequently until the mixture is thick and then allow it to cool. Use a tablespoon at a time to relieve your cough whenever needed.

If a cough is keeping you from sleeping, try this calming tea that will suppress your cough and relax your nerves:

1 cup strong-brewed chamomile tea
2 tablespoons pure lemon juice or 100% grape juice
1 tablespoon honey

A warm up of this tea will help you get a good night of rest, which will put you on the road to recovery from your cough.

Cancer Seminar

Today, 3/7/09, I went to a seminar in West Palm Beach for Cancers, it was put on by The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center. A fantastic seminar, very informative, but no mentions of alternative approches from natural supplements. Dr. DuBois does general oncology and is the president of American Association for Cancer Research. Dr. Sawaya does neurological oncology and has removed tumors that other practioners had shunned as hopeless, very brilliant, and Dr. Hwu does melanoma oncology and internal oncology resulting from melanoma. After the seminar, I caught up with Dr. Hwu with some questions on the reasons melanoma cells seek other areas of the body, not just the skin and why there were no mention that acidic environments help cancers thrive and alkaline environments stop cancer growth, surprisingly, he asked me to go to Texas and join their research team. I would definately be the odd-ball, they study medicines, I research alternative supplements. Of course I didn't tell him that. I did get a chance to pass out two dozen or so pieces of literature and some brochures on my natural supplement. If anyone is interested, their website is: www.mdanderson.org, they offer a free health newsletter that is very good. Good health, Ed (Chagaman)
