EMERGING NOVEL APPROACH – ‘STARVING CANCER CELLS’ NATURALLY!!

‘Scientists find that amino acids power growth in cancer cells’

It is a tragedy that that there has yet to be a single, high-quality clinical (human) trial conducted to investigate a very promising anticancer phenomenon that researchers have known about since 1959.   Continue reading “EMERGING NOVEL APPROACH – ‘STARVING CANCER CELLS’ NATURALLY!!”

‘TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN’ OR ‘CANCER GENE’?? NEW INSIGHTS INTO BRCA1!!

Experts around the globe estimate that nearly half of all cancer cases are preventable with diet and healthy lifestyle changes!!

With this knowledge in mind and the fact that 90-95% percent of women who develop breast cancer ‘do not have a BRCA inherited gene mutation’, this said, what further information should be presented to women who are found to have this genetic BRCA1 coded gene?? Continue reading “‘TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN’ OR ‘CANCER GENE’?? NEW INSIGHTS INTO BRCA1!!”

THE ‘FEAR RESPONSE’ – PARALYZING CLEAR DECISION MAKING IN THE WAKE OF A CANCER DIAGNOSIS!!

“Knowledge is the most powerful weapon in overcoming fear”

Sadness, worry or fear are natural emotions during the cancer journey and in some circumstances, the instantaneous triggering of the ‘flight response’ in fearful situations can be life-saving.  However, in situations where cognitive processing is desired, and needed, the presence of fear is counter-productive.   Continue reading “THE ‘FEAR RESPONSE’ – PARALYZING CLEAR DECISION MAKING IN THE WAKE OF A CANCER DIAGNOSIS!!”

BOOSTING OUR ‘INNATE IMMUNITY’ – TRUSTING IN NATURE TO PAVE THE WAY!!

‘With an intact immune system there is no room for cancer!!’

Our immune system is known to be our ‘first line of defense‘ against disease!!  As with most cancer types and other chronic conditions, which aren’t autoimmune in nature, there is a need to up-regulate the immune system and prime it for battle.  There are many natural ways this can be done, especially with a greater understanding of what suppresses and what boosts our immune system in the first place. Continue reading “BOOSTING OUR ‘INNATE IMMUNITY’ – TRUSTING IN NATURE TO PAVE THE WAY!!”

‘BRCA 1 GENE’ – WHAT IS “A PLETHORA OF RESEARCH” CATEGORICALLY TELLING US??

Research published in The Journal of Cell Biology, from a team led by Susana Gonzalo, Ph.D, illustrates our ability to dramatically reduce the risk of breast cancer – even with a BRCA1 gene mutation. Continue reading “‘BRCA 1 GENE’ – WHAT IS “A PLETHORA OF RESEARCH” CATEGORICALLY TELLING US??”

“NEW AGE HEALTH CARE” – WITH ‘INFORMED PATIENTS’ REDEFINING ‘THE BALANCE OF POWER’!!

“Patient empowerment is a finely-tuned skill health providers and patients develop together”

Many would agree, that feeling in control is vastly important when dealing with our own health issues, however most people will admit that they have allowed themselves to become passive recipients in a medical model of ‘patient care‘, where our fundamental rights can be diminished, ignored, or at worst overridden. Continue reading ““NEW AGE HEALTH CARE” – WITH ‘INFORMED PATIENTS’ REDEFINING ‘THE BALANCE OF POWER’!!”

THE ‘FUNDAMENTALS OF SUSCEPTIBILITY’ – ARE OUR GENES REALLY TO BLAME FOR CANCER DEVELOPMENT??

When it comes to our ‘genes’, we appear to have been ‘indoctrinated‘ to believe that ‘the genes we inherit‘ have everything to do with disease and that we are totally at their mercy when it comes to developing cancer!!??  The fortunate thing is this is not the case!!
