Could there be a causal link between severe stressors and cancer ?

This article directly correlates severe stressors and/or survivors guilt (emotional issues of survival). I regularly see in my office this same evidence but on a much less severe scale. Patients who are often times more stressed or who interpret their life as being more stressful will tend to have more problems of a chronic nature and seemingly not responsive to traditional and natural treatments. When I get these patients to consider doing N.E.T. work we often times begin the process of healing for these people. Often times processing and removing the emotional charge related to a severely stressful life event can free the body up to heal itself or stay healthy as the case may be.

Hope everyone has a great fourth of July.

Coffee May Not Be So Bad After All.... But wait

If you read this article at first you feel pretty good about your pot a day coffee habit. Then you read further down and you might decide its really not worth it. As with all things too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Balance in life is key and that is what you should be striving for. In fact that may be my next post but in the mean time take a look at this article on coffee and have fun.

Noticing a Pattern Here ?

Sorry to have to point this out again but don't say I didn't tell you so. Once again we have a few million people in the U.K. being taken off of a medication that has been prescribed like candy for those with the slightest hint of high blood pressure. Just so you are ready you will soon see that the normal adult blood pressure is lowered. Mark my words that this will happen in the next few years. Once normal average adult blood pressure ranges are lowered, we of course will get to sell a few more prescriptions of the blood pressure pharmaceutical of the day.

Please consider other options. Look at studies that discuss magnesium and B vitamins in therapeutic doses

Surprise: Radiating Breast Tissue causes Breast Cancer

This post is no surprise to me. I have been saying this for years to women and to the men that love them. Here are my issues with Breast Mammography in order of importance:

1. Breast Mammography does not prevent nor decrease the incidence of Breast Cancer
2. Breast Mammography is not and has never been the best way to detect Breast Cancer once it is there, which is the only thing it is good for.
3. Irradiating any body tissue, much less tissues that have higher cell turnover or higher fat content, has the risk of causing cell dysplasia or abnormal mitosis which in our common vernacular is the big "C" word.
4. Compressing breast tissue on a flat screen between two plates just doesn't sound like fun.

Of course this article cautions right off the bat with the word "may". Whatever. I have heard so many times the medical community and studies caution that "such and such may cause such and such but we can't be conclusive". That should now be your clue that whatever is being talked about in the study actually does cause whatever terrible condition is mentioned in that same study. Please stop using mammograms at all and if you want a baseline breast imaging study in your fifties or because you have risk factors choose an MRI or thermography.
