Natural Therapy for Cancer

 

Fruits and Vegetables

Anyone who has ever had cancer, or had a loved one with cancer, knows the feelings of fear, anxiety, worry and often hopelessness that this very serious illness can bring.  These emotions are very understandable it’s a serious illness.  So, its little wonder that cancer usually causes intense emotional distress in everyone involved.

Of course, the subject of cancer is far too involved to adequately address in a mere blog post.  However, I can acquaint you with some important information about cancer from a natural healing perspective and give you some ideas about options you may not be familiar with.  However, I strongly encourage you to seek professional help when dealing with cancer.  You need competent health care professionals helping you with your program and monitoring your progress, but you should also do some study on your own and learn about things you can do for yourself.

WHAT EXACTLY IS CANCER?

Cancer is a disease involving cells that have undergone a genetic mutation so they are no longer responsive to messages from the body that regulate cell metabolism and growth.  These mutations are believed to be the result of free radical damage turn cancerous.  Normal cells have an aerobic metabolism, which means they produce energy by means of oxygen and oxidation.  Anaerobic cells produce energy without oxygen via a process of fermentation.

This is important to know because if the body is highly oxygenated, the environment for cancer does not exist.  In fact, in 1931 Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for proving that whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements, it can become cancerous.  So, conditions that deprive cells of oxygen (like chronic inflammation, buildup of toxins or problems with red blood cells or circulation) increase the risk of cancer.  An overly acidic environment in the body is also a breeding ground for cancer.

Another important thing you should know is that cancer cells are forming in the body on a regular basis.  Very likely, you have a few inside you right now.  Don’t worry, the immune system normally recognizes these deviant cells and destroys them.

Therefor two factors must exist for you to develop cancer.  First, your body has to have a toxic, low oxygen environment that encourages the development of anaerobic cancer cells, and second, your immune system must be weakened so that it is not able to recognize and destroy these cells.

aerobic-respiration

So, while killing cancer cells (the goal of conventional cancer therapy) is an important part of treating cancer, it does not fix the underlying problems that created the cancer in the first place.  This is the weakness of the standard medical approach to cancer.  An effective protocol for cancer should do more than just destroy cancer cells, it should try to restore a normal, healthy environment in the body and rebuild the immune system.

So, even if one choose to use orthodox cancer therapies to destroy the cancer cells, they would be wise to consider doing natural therapy to restore the body’s state of health and prevent the cancer from wanting to re-occur.

PRINCIPLE #1: INCREASE OXYGEN LEVELS

Cancer cells are anaerobic, which means they live and thrive in a low oxygen environment.  They are able to get their energy by metabolizing nutrients, notable sugars and carbohydrates without oxygen, in a fermentative process.  Cancer cells cannot survive in a high oxygen environment, so keeping the body well oxygenated inhibits cancer.  Do this by getting plenty of fresh air and exercise, breathe deeply, if you smoke, QUIT.

oxygen

There are several supplements that can enhance oxygenation in the body.  For starters, CHINESE LUNG SUPPORT:  helps with oxygen delivery and uptake and is very useful for anyone with respiratory weakness.  Another Chinese remedy that strengthens the lungs and enhances oxygen transport is CORDYCEPS.  Cordyceps also helps the immune system.

LIQUID CHLOROPHYLL: is another great way to enhance oxygen transport.  It prevents clumping of red blood cells and helps them carry more oxygen to the tissues.  Research has shown that it can reduce the risk of cancer.

PRINCIPLE #2: BALANCE pH

In order to have optimal health, the body must maintain a proper internal pH.  Cancer cells prefer an acid pH environment.  Their fermentative metabolism also releases large amounts of lactic acid that inhibit transportation o oxygen to neighboring cells.  This spreads the environment for cancer.  A buildup of acid waste also inhibits toxins from being released by the cells.

ph-foods

The best way to counteract this acidic environment is to eat large quantities of fresh, preferable organic, fruits and veggies every day.  This is well-recognized as one of the best ways of decreasing your risk of cancer, but unfortunately, its benefit in helping folks recover from cancer is often ignored.  Fresh fruits and veggies not only help alkalize the body, they also strengthen immunity, aid detoxification and provide much-needed antioxidants.

Besides eating fresh fruits and veggies, there are several other supplements that can help alkalize the body.  The first is Ultimate Green Zone:  this is a whole food supplement that alkalizes the environment, aids in detoxification and builds the immune system to help it recognize and destroy cancer cells.

Digestive enzymes are a MUST to help balance pH.  my favorite choice for folks with cancer is Proactazyme plus and PDA Combo, these are great choices with balancing pH and assisting with proper digestion.  You can’t nourish a sick body if the food processor, a.k.a. digestive system can’t process the nutrients.  A lack of hydrochloric acid leads to excess lactic acid in the body, which sets the stage for cancer to thrive.  These are taken with meals to help the body metabolize food properly so as to avoid a buildup of acid waste and toxins.  They are also taken between meals to help rid the body of excess proteins that may be causing acid in the blood.

 

PRINCIPLE #3: STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

The body normally and regularly produces cancer cells due to free radical damage, environmental factors or other causes.  A healthy immune system recognizes and destroys these defective cells.  When the immune system is unable to recognize these deviant cells or is too weak to destroy them, the disease we call cancer takes root.

immune-system

There are many reasons why the immune system becomes weakened; poor nutritional intake is a major factor for many.  The loss or destruction of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract is another.  Excessive sugar consumption supplies cancer cells with the energy they need to proliferate fast, (refined sugar is like fertilizer for cancer cells,) while contributing to chronic inflammation that distresses the immune system.

Improving nutritional intake, especially eating those 7-9 servings of fruits and veggies daily, will help the immune system, as will eliminating chemically laden processed foods.  Reducing intake of sugar, white flour and other simple carbohydrates will also prove helpful.

TRIGGER IMMUNE: helps to rebuild a weakened immune system, enhance vital energy and immune function and increase white blood cell production and platelet count.  It is very helpful in recovering from chemotherapy and can also be taken during chemotherapy to strengthen the system to resist toxic affects from chemotherapy.

 

IMMUNE STIMULATOR:  is another supplement that can boost the immune system to fight cancer.  It not only enhances natural killer cells (lymphocytes), which kill cancer cells, it also increases T-cell production and antibody production.  An important benefit of Immune simulator is its ability to enhance cellular communication, which helps the immune system identify and target calls it needs to destroy.

UNA DE GATO COMBINATION: is another herbal formula that strengthens a weakened immune system.  The principle ingredient, Una de Gato, has been used in South American for cancer treatment and contains compounds that inhibit tumor growth in animals.

 

PRINCIPLE #4: DETOXIFY

The human body is bombarded with toxins, heavy metals, chlorine and thousands of chemicals that we breathe in, consume in our diet or absorb through our skin.  These all cause free radicals in the body and contribute to the environment of cancer.

chemical

 

Avoiding these toxins is part of both cancer prevention and holistic cancer therapy.  In particular, avoid or eliminate refined and processed foods (especially foods raised with pesticides, antibiotics or steroids), toxic cleaning products (such as laundry detergents, skin care items, fluoride toothpaste, etc.) and chlorinated and fluoridated water. Research the ingredients that are in cleaning and health/beauty products before you purchase, we all carry mini computers today called “smart phones” which can give you information lickety split.  Also, avoid microwaved or irradiated food and protect yourself from electrical equipment (electromagnetic pollution may be a major causal factor in cancer).

It is also helpful to assist the body in detoxifying from these substances using any of the following supplements:

For starters: E-TEA or also referred to as Essiac Tea is a famous anticancer formula that helps the body eliminate toxins.  It improves lymphatic drainage and stimulates the immune system.

ALL CELL DETOX:  is another good, general cleansing formula that is based on a Native American medicine man’s cancer remedy.  It reduces inflammation, supports the liver and digestive system and helps neutralize acid.

BLOOD BUILD:  is a supplement I think everyone should use cancer or not at least 3 times a year.  it nourishes the blood and helps increase its volume.  It is an excellent formula for helping the body rebuild after chemotherapy.

 

PRINCIPLE #5: USE ANTIOXIDANTS

Our need for oxygen exceed the demand for any nutrient, even water, because we need oxygen for normal energy production in the cell.  You can go 3 weeks with zero food, and 3 days even without water, but you cannot go 3 minutes without oxygen.  Oxygen can also produce free radicals that can damage normal cells and cause cancer. Antioxidant nutrients protect the body from this free radical damage, thereby reducing cancer risk.  Antioxidants can also be used in a treatment program for cancer, because they help protect the body from harmful side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

 

Some antioxidants to consider would include:  HIGH POTENCY GRAPINE:  which is an extract of grape seed that helps reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage, and GREEN TEA EXTRACT: which contains polyphenols called catechins, powerful antioxidants that protect cells from cancer and kill cancer cells.  One of these catechins is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which was shown in several studies to kill cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.

One of my all time favorites is THAI-GO: its a liquid which many cancer patients will assimilate liquids easier, but this contains xanthones, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown in numerous studies to inhibit cancer cells and aid in tumor reduction.  These compounds cause apoptosis (or preprogrammed cell death) in cancer cells.  Xanthones exert cytotoxic (cancer cell killing) effects against human hepatocellular carcinoma cells, and have been shown to inhibit the growth of human leukemia HL-60 cells.  Xanthones have also been shown to be effective against human breast cancer SKBR3 cells.

IF-RELIEF: also contains xanthones and can be helpful for reducing chronic inflammation and pain.

PRINCIPLE #6: KILL CANCER CELLS

For those diagnosed with cancer, it is important to kill off the cancerous cells.  The problem is that chemotherapy and radiation also cause damage to healthy cells.  Killing cancer cells also produces toxins that the body MUST eliminate.

There are some natural compounds that can help kill cancer cells, too.  PAW PAW CELL REG: is a standardized extract of acetogenins from the American Paw paw tree.  These compounds have been shown in scientific research to cause apoptosis (preprogrammed cell death) in cancer cells by inhibiting their energy production.

Paw Paw Cell Reg is not appropriate for all cancers and should be used as a part of a comprehensive cancer program.  However, even if one chooses to use chemotherapy drugs.  Paw Paw may still be beneficial.  It has also been shown to reduce chemotherapy drug resistance.  By itself, paw pas doesn’t have the side effects of hair loss, weight loss, extreme nausea and compromised immunity.  It may cause nausea in larger doses however.

Paw paw is NOT recommended as a supplement for preventing cancer.  It is only appropriate when a person HAS cancer.  Paw paw is also ineffective against leukemia, lymphoma and other cancers that do not involve tumors.

Another supplement that can help the body destroy cancer cells, is HIGH POTENCY PROTEASE,  it breaks down the protein coat on cancer cells and also helps prevent cancer cells that are breaking down from creating a toxic load on nearby healthy cells.  It is taken BETWEEN meals for this purpose, and taken WITH meals to enhance digestion.

PRINCIPLE #7: INCREASE JOY AND PLEASURES

One German study shows a commonality that all cancer patients experienced a trauma and an unresolved psychological issue shortly before the cancer developed.  Stress is a big component of cancer because psychological stress creates physical stress that dramatically reduces immune function.

laughter.jpg

Reducing stress should be a stress-less task.  That’s why the goal here is not to reduce stress , but rather to deliberately seek out joy and pleasure.  A pleasurable, happy experience has a more positive effect on the immune system and healing than the stressful effects of an experience.

So, seek out pleasurable experiences. Find things that make you laugh.  Spend time with family, friends or pets.  Take a walk in the fresh air and sunshine.  Surround yourself with pleasing colors, smells, sounds.  Listen to favorite music; get up and dance.  Listen to calming, meditative music.  Take a hot bath in Epsom salts and lavender oil.  Treat yourself to a  full body massage, take a mini vacation or go to a spa for the day.

 

You can also reduce stress by taking some herbal support like NUTRI-CALM: which replenishes  the nervous system and adrenals.  ADRENAL SUPPORT : will help build stamina and promote healing as well as giving the body more ability to cope with stress.  Another option is CHINESE STRESS RELIEF:  which can assist the body’s ability to relax, counteracting stress.

Cancer is a difficult multi-facet disease to work with, but many folks have successfully recovered from cancer using both natural and conventional therapies or a combination of the two.  Seek out professional assistance in designing the holistic program that is a proper fit for you.  Remember, there is hope!

The Gray Zone… skin tone…

gray-skin

CLIENT: I had a consultation with a client, and one of the 1st things I noticed about him was how particularly “gray” his skin tone was. Of course that wasn’t the reason for his visit, as a matter of fact his main reason was, he just always felt “REALLY TIRED” all the time. Zero energy!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

I go thru a client intake/history with each person, and the fatigue kept being his center of topic, although, I found out he’d struggled with chronic indigestion and heartburn. He pointed out that both symptoms had been keeping company with him for upwards of 20 yrs., he basically had “stock” in the Tums/Rolaids since his early 40’s. I detected a note of accomplishment in his voice and demeanor when he stated he was now taking Tagamet every day for the past 7 yrs. and his indigestion was no longer an issue.
I posed this to him, ” you know stomachs are naturally designed to secrete enough acid to turn even large meals into the equivalent of soupy mush?” “Yeah, I know that in general, but all the doctors told me that my indigestion & heartburn are due to too much acid,” was his reply.
I asked: did anyone ever actually measure your stomach-acid production?”
His answer: “No… but the symptoms sure have gone away since I blocked all that acid out.”
My response: “and a river will dry up if we stop all the rain,” “Maybe that’s an advantage for a little while if the river has been overflowing, but what happens if we stop the rain permanently?”
He thought for a brief second, “permanently?” “At least 7 yrs..” “Quite a drought. Nothing would grow.”
I chucked and stated: “Right, and if we shut off or neutralize our stomach’s natural acidity for more than brief intervals, there are similar consequences. First, we don’t break down foods as well, and many nutrients, especially essential amino acids, certain minerals, and at least two B vitamins, aren’t made as available by natural acid digestion as they usually are, and aren’t properly absorbed into our bloodstreams, So our cells don’t have the normal amounts of nutrients for nourishment. Second, when that acidified soup empties out of the stomach into the upper small intestine, it triggers the secretion of hormones that in turn stimulate the3 pancreas and gallbladder to make or release their own digestive secretions, such as enzymes, bicarbonate, and bile. Without the acid trigger, these hormones are under-produced, and the next stages in digestion doesn’t work as well as they should either. This makes another whole group of nutrients less available to your cells.”
“So it’s like a domino of events. If the acidity isn’t there, then other parts of digestion will fail to trigger too.” He asked ( My favorite part of my job is when I see evidence of the lightbulb getting brighter).
I said: “Exactly, and we don’t even know if we know absolutely all the domino’s in the digestive system, we are fearfully and wonderfully made.”
His response was: “No wonder I’m tired, I’ve literally dried up a lot of my digestion for years. Why didn’t anyone tell me about this?”
“I don’t know, it’s all right there in the basic textbooks for medical students. But that’s not all: The same basic textbooks list a 3rd consequence of low or no stomach-acid production. Let’s think about it like this: What happens if I put bacteria or parasites into an acid in a test tube?”
He says: “I’m not sure, but I would presume they’d die?”
RIGHT, they die & turn into a minor protein supplement. Textbooks of gastroenterology actually call stomach acid the acid barrier to intestinal-tract infection. Also, everyone knows that farther down the intestinal tract is home to a nice variety of micro-organisms called intestinal flora, that also help with digestion, secrete a few important vitamins, and generally behave themselves. But if the acid-alkaline balance, also called the pH; isn’t just right, then many of the friendly micro-organisms literally die out and are replaced by not-so- friendly germs. Some of them will excrete substances that are actually toxic to our cells, that are absorbed and then spread all thru the body.
So now my Gray skinned client, is shifting in his chair. “So not only have I been semi-starving myself but also maybe encouraging toxins from my gut to get around my whole system? I shook my head : Yup I’m afraid so!
Next best question: “So could blocking my normal stomach function be why I have all this extreme fatigue?” I answered: Very likely, so the 1st course of action is to work on restoring normal digestion as much as possible, make up for at least 7yrs. of unintended malnutrition, and, if necessary, work to restore normal gut flora. Then we’ll see.”
He was concerned about stopping the Tagamet, fearful he’d have indigestion and heartburn all over again. I stated there are natural ways to stop indigestion and heartburn without blocking stomach acid.
The truth is, you can eat all the right foods and still slowly starve to death, if the food processor cannot process the food rolling down the slide. Underproduction of stomach acid in the majority of cases is the issue! the official name is HYPROCHLORHYDRIA (meaning low or no stomach acid), it is one of the most common digestive malfunctions, and it is often accompanied by other, seemingly unrelated health issues. Inadequate digestion also becomes more frequent as we age. So remember, even if you are eating the best healthiest diet, or for a particular ailment, if the food you are eating is incompletely digested or assimilated, your body still isn’t getting the nutrients it needs and won’t be effective!
LESSON: our bodies are made up of 60 or so essential nutrients (essential being defined as nutrients without which we’d sooner or later drop dead); how healthy can you be if your body isn’t absorbing even one of those nutrients? And what if a dozen or more nutrients are in short supply? If our foods and supplements don’t encounter the proper acid and enzymes they won’t digest and absorb, which will cause malnutrition. In essence, you could be eating all you need but still starving.
Many peeps who have too little stomach acid are being treated as if they have TOO much, probably because the symptoms are similar. 10-15% of the population suffers from low stomach acid production and are being misdiagnosed and mistreated.
Why would you want to take antacids or acid blockers when your stomach is already weak and not digesting? It’s easy symptom relief that’s why. But it is symptom relief that is offering ZERO remedy /recovery! Let me emphasize that antacid sales are a booming business,,, that statistic alone should alert you to how many folks are living with incomplete digestion!
SIGNS OF LOW HCL:
*BLOATING
*BELCHING
*BURNING SENSATION AFTER EATING
*FEELING LIKE FOOD IS JUST SITTING THERE AND NOT DIGESTING
*INABILITY TO EAT MORE THAN A SMALL AMOUNT OF FOOD WITHOUT FEELING FULL
*CONSTIPATION (note you can still have a bowel movement each day and be struggling with incomplete digestion, check and see if your stool sinks to the bottom of the toilet, if so, that’s incomplete digestion)
*WEAK PEELING EASILY BROKEN FINGERNAILS.
*HAIR LOSS
*GASSINESS
*DILATION OF CAPILLARIES IN THE CHEEKS AND ON THE NOSE (in non-alcoholics)
There is a long list of disease frequently associated with low stomach acidity which includes:
*DIABETES
*UNDER/OVER ACTIVE THYROID
*CHILDHOOD ASTHMA
*ECZEMA
*GALLBLADDER DISEASE,
*OSTEOPOROSIS
*RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS,
*CHRONIC HIVES
*LUPUS
*WEAK ADRENALS
*CHRONIC HEPATITIS
*VITILIGO
*ROSACEA
If you struggle and suffer from some of these symptoms or diseases mentioned and you suspect that your problem is poor digestion, I’d be honored to work with you and your inner food processor.
Update on my Mr. GRAY man, his skin color slowly returned to the normal brown/pink skin tones. His fatigue also waned and was replaced by increased energy. His wife noted improvements in his MOOD and ATTITUDE, 6 months later, he declared himself “back to normal.” He was skeptical at first, but noticed remarkable improvements within the 1st 2 weeks and progress just kept improving from that point forward.
Hope this was helpful, especially as we are rocking into the holiday “gorging” season,,, many will be wanting to reach for the anti-acids, how bout you schedule an appointment before the holidays hit full throttle, you maybe able to enjoy the banquet table vs. resentment and misery! go to http://www.mkt.com/harvested-health-llc and book & pre-pay for your consultation and we can take that 1st step.

#tired, #zeroenergy, #digestion, #heartburn, #GERD,


ABC’S easy as 1,2,3….approach your health simply!!!!

What I feel to be the “beauty” of what I offer in my practice thru Natural healing is not relying on the disease diagnosis/treatment model. I do not diagnose diseases or prescribe any treatments for them. What I do offer is the model to help balance the body so it will heal itself. I utilize certain basic therapies that remove underlying causes of disease and use them to help the body heal itself. These basic therapies fall under the titles:
• Activate
• Build
• Cleanse
• Direct Aid
I was taught these principles, I have applied them in my own life and I encourage my client’s to apply these same tools.
I believe that the Activate therapy is a very critical step in the healing process. I encourage my client’s to begin by visualizing and believing that they can be well. Effective natural healing acknowledges the simple truth that the body has been fearfully & wonderfully made with a built in natural capacity to heal itself. That is evident and has presented itself throughout our life thus far. Have you ever cut yourself? Did you have to go crazy with major assistance for that cut to heal? Have you ever broken a bone? Even if you had that broken bone set in a cast, the cast itself offered zero healing benefits, it just kept the broken bones in alignment while the “body” went about mending the area that was broken. So there is positive proof that the body in fact is made by design to keep itself healthy, repaired and running well.

My goal as a natural practitioner is to champion my client’s towards believing in that built in healing capacity. Positive thinking goes a long way, the next steps we incorporate is to enhance that built in self-healing ability which resides in all of us.

I want to touch on faith…. Even those who don’t have a strong religious foundation actually have to begin to admit that they initiate faith each and every day. We take it on faith that a new day is going to be there for us when we go to bed & open our eyes the next day. We take it on faith that when we inhale we are taking in life giving air. We have to lay a hold of the fact that what we do not already have as if we actually already have it. The strength of that inner faith is what can move mountains and display what others claim to be as miracles. There are people who were told after an injury they would never walk again, and by sheer faith & determination they proved that statement wrong, yet there are others who are given the same statement and they never walk again. What may be the turning point from one to the other, possibly their level of faith to believe in the strength & healing power of their own bodies.

You have to be willing to employ a positive attitude and have positive emotions. Those thoughts & emotions radiate a vibrational energy that like a stone tossed in a pond carry a ripple effect, that ripple can be negative or positive, that is all down to the thoughts & emotions of the individual. So glass half empty or half full that becomes a personal choice. My job as my client’s practitioner is to encourage my client to be the champion I know they can be, however, I cannot heal anyone, I can equip them with tools, but their willingness to apply those tools rest in their hands. I always want more for my client’s than I sometimes believe they may want for themselves. However, in all honesty, I have no “skin in the game” so to speak, what I do have though is MY integrity to my work, my belief in what I offer because I have applied it in my own life and seen and experienced the benefits of incorporating the very same tools for the improvement of my own health.

So I want to address what positive thinking may look like. When we have positive thoughts it actually provides an electrical stimulating impulse that moves through our nervous system and can activate the healing energy of our tissues. (we are totally electrical beings, without that nervous system, our muscles and organs won’t work).
Negative thoughts however send a totally different kind of stimulation to our tissues, which can result in them working in a dysfunctional manner. Truth be told most of us have to work extra hard on manifesting more positive speech as the negative seems to come so much easier.
• My spouse drives me nuts
• My neighbor makes me sick to my stomach
• My friends are against me
• I feel stabbed in the back
• That makes me want to throw up

You have to get rid of the negative talk.
I think you get the idea I’m trying to make. When we continue to repeat in our thoughts and speech with such a negative barrage our body can literally respond to these subtle messages by causing the very pains & illnesses our thoughts are telling us to create. That’s why it is so important for healing that we don’t identify directly with a named disease. When we see disease for what it is, which is a process demonstrating that one’s system is out of balance, it is easier to heal.

When we on the other hand see the disease as something that is part of us, something that has taken over or control of us, then a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness, then gets the opportunity to take over. Statistics have proven that cancerous tumors grow faster once someone has been told they have cancer. This is because that person’s fear and worry actually depresses the immune system, which in turn makes the disease worse. So here are a couple basic activating therapies you can use to promote healing in the body.

#1. Affirmation & visualization:

Affirmation simply put is being in the present tense that affirms what you want as if you actually already had it. So I I had a broken bone and I wanted to speed up the healing of that bone I would state & affirm “my bone is whole & strong.” Notice the present tense “my bone IS”. This is so vital to making positive affirmations work because it is laying hold of what you desire in the present tense. If you say, “ my bone will be whole and strong,” this puts the fulfillment in the future, not the present and doesn’t convey the same power. If a direct statement like that is difficult to use, then a less direct but equally effective statement would be, “my bone is healing as it should.”

So this is what positive affirmation should look like:
• My body is healthy & strong
• My body is healing as it should
• I am fearfully & wonderfully made
• You body is recovering nicely

Visualization actually involves getting into a more relaxed state & breathing deeply while you picture the final result you desire in your mine. It is super important to actually see yourself having what you want right now, not in the future.  Many Cancer Clinics have their Cancer patients  practice visualizing their white blood cells gobbling up the cancer cells & destroying them. It has been proven in studies that employing visualization actually enhances the immune system.
When you use both of these techniques they are enhanced when you practice deep breathing & relaxation. When you breathe deeply, tissues receive more oxygen, which fans the spark of life & increases the flame of life throughout the body. Breath is called the “breath of life” because it is intimately connected with the vital life force within us. To breathe is to actually connect with feelings of being alive, shallow breathing causes a person to stifle their feelings by deadening the body.

So start your healing process by breathing deeply & allowing your body to relax. Then you can pick one of the next methods for “laying a hold” on the health you want before you actually have it.

#2 Stress Management:

I think we can all identify with what stress looks like which is:
• Worry
• Tension
• Fear
• Frustration
It feels like pressure. The world we live in makes it difficult to avoid stress. There are bills to pay, our car breaks down when it is the least convenient, overload with responsibilities at work (overworked & underpaid syndrome), marital issues, stress with the children  the list seem never ending and each new day can present another element of something to feel stressed out about. It’s estimated that up to 90% of all visits to the doctor is for stress related health issues. So learning how to manage what obviously is always going to be around, makes sense.
Before you can manage something you actually have to understand what it is. When our brain perceives stress it sends a chemical message to the pituitary thru the hypothalamus which triggers the release of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH then prompts the adrenals to start producing hormones like epinephrine (adrenaline) and cortisol. Epinephrine actually doubles as a hormone & neurotransmitter. It tenses our muscles, increases our heart rate & blood pressure, dilates the bronchial tubes & speeds up our breathing, shuts down the digestion & other functions not essential to immediate survival, and  prepares our body for action mode.

Cortisol reduces inflammation, which is meant our body to deal better with injury & pain. Although its role in reducing inflammation is important, when to much cortisol is released it can causes premature aging, depress immune function & extended over production can cause the muscles to waste including causing the brain to shrink so many will notice memory loss, brain fog aspect. These stress hormones also cause a rise in our blood sugar levels & increases the blood clotting factors which makes the blood thicker.

So it’s easy to see how chronic long term stress can become a major player in tons of health problems, including poor digestion, constipation, tension headaches, neck & shoulder pain, low back pain, ulcers, high blood pressure, blood clotting, increased risk of infections, asthma, diabetes, excess weight and even cancer & autoimmune disorders. In fact, I’m willing to go out on a limb and suggest that a large percentage of all the illness we experience probably has a stress connection. So, reducing stress is one of the basic things we can do to improve our overall health. In fact, relaxation is critical for the healing process.
It’s apparent that to eliminate stress from our lives probably isn’t going to be a reality, but learning how to reduce it’s impact on our health is doable aspect. What are some of the avenues that can be applied for coping better with the effects stress can have on you physically:
I’ll offer you:
• #1. Breathe: I mean breathe deeply, it’s simple, it’s free and you can do it anywhere. If you stop and take stock of what happens when you are feeling stressed, you will notice that you re either holding your breath or breathing very fast & shallow. When you concentrate on breathing slowly & deeply, you will activate the parasympathetic nervous system and help reduce your stress levels. Repeat in your mind while breathing in…. I am and while thinking as you are breathing out relaxed.
• #2. RELAXATION RESPONSE:
• Dr. Herbert Benson in 1975 published his book titled “The Relaxation Response.”, He showed a simple, non-religious meditation technique that could help patients with insomnia, heart problems, high blood pressure & chronic pain. He took the mystery out of the subject, showing that all one needed to do was consciously relax the muscles, breathe slowly & deeply and find a repetitivbe phrase to keep the brain occupied (i.e. repeating the word “one” over & over in one’s mind). Just taking 20 mins. A day for this exercise will dramatically reduce your stress level. Start by getting comfortable and sit or lie down. Visualize all your muscles in your body relaxing. Start breathing slowly & deeply while counting your breath (in, one, two, three, four & out, one, two, three, four). Then pick a single focus for your mind, such as the word “one” or “peace”, You can pick what ever one word resonates with you. But what this does is it will quiet that “monkey brain” to stop & quiet the mind. When we are in the thick of a stressful moment, I find our mind is either in the past going thru all the coulda, shoulda, woulda, regretful thoughs, or we have tossed ourselves into the future already worrying about all the what if’s yet rarely does any of those what-ifs come to be and we wasted all that time focusing on them, realize ALL power is in the now, The past is history, the future is still a mystery, but the actions you take today is where the power resides because the actions of today will shape your future. The past cannot be changed so let it go, just let it go, I have personally found that when I force myself to be present in the moment most of my fear melts away and I actually feel empowered because I can’t change the past, I can’t read the future, but my here and now, I can deal with…
• #3. SUGAR & CAFFEINE:
• It amazes me how when we are under stress mentally the majority of us crave comfort foods which typically are going to be “junk foods”. Sugar & caffeine top the list for most people. They may give you that brief pick me up, but they are going to drop you like a rock just as fast. Coupled with the fact that they add more stress on the adrenal glands which are already tired and then you end up on that conveyor belt called burned-out. So avoid those sugar treats, and carbohydrate snackies and instead go for the protein and quality fats like nuts. If you feel like you cannot function without your caffeine, realize your adrenals need some system support and supplement with Adrenal Support: http://www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com
• #4. H2O:
• Yep water.. many of my client’s are what I label as clinically dehydrated, our body needs water, you can go days and days without food, but water is essential, yet people are drinking stuff all day long, unfortunately it rarely seems to be water. Drinking more water can actually make you feel calmer and you sleep better. When you are dehydrated your anxiety levels increase.
• #5. Exercise:
• Why does our body produce those stress hormones? Well, they are gearing your body up to take action, physical action and that’s what makes modern stress such a big problem. The stress hormones gear out body to run, fight or physically work to fight the problem, but our sedentary lifestyle doesn’t offer us the ability to burn off these stress hormones in physical activity. So exercise gives the opportunity to “work off’ those stressful feelings. You don’t have to go join a gym if money is an issue, clean out a closet, go for a walk, scrub the shower or the kitchen floor, clean the garage, wash the car, even better wax the car. Do something physical.
• #6. FEED YOUR NERVES
• Our nervous system a.k.a. Nerves, they need nutrition just like any other part of our body. What do they need? They the healthy fats, butter, coconut oil, nuts, olive oil, flax seed oil avocados, Omega-3 essential fatty acids. The vitamins they require are the B-vitamins which when we are under stress we burn them up like crazy. Vitamin C & pantothenic acid are needed to support the adrenals. Nutri-Calm (www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com) is a great combo product that supports the health of our nerves. HSN-W (www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com) has silica which helps the nerves become more resilient because it strengthens the myelin sheath that is the protective coating on our nerves, I refer to it like the protective coating on our electrical plugs that house the wires, if that coating gets damaged and wires are exposed the current running thru the wires can arch out and cause a fire. Same thing with our myelin sheath and our nerves.
• My clients have heard me talk about adaptagenic herbs and what they do is the modulate the signals that are sent from the hypothalamus and pituitary glands causing a reduction of adrenal output of adrenaline and cortisol, which lowers stress levels. They help to break the damaging fight or flight chain reaction patterns in which the body can get stuck due to chronic stress. So by reducing the cortisol levels, these herbs also help boost the immune system. Eleuthero root (www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com) is an adaptagen. Studies have proved it helps increase stamina, endurance & energy, improve concentration &stimulate male hormone production.
• Gotu Kola, American & Korean Ginseng, Suma, Schizandra berries are all adaptagens. Some of these are in a combination form in the supplement Adapta-max (www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com), Nervous fatigue formula (www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com) and SUMA Combination (www.harvestedhealth.mynsp.com). Adding some of these herbal adaptagens can literally make you feel more at ease.
• #7. REST & RELAXATION:
• This one is not to be underestimated. We’ve pretty much determined that you probably won’t be super successful at avoiding stress, but there are ways to reduce how it effects you. When we do something that is pleasurable our body releases hormones & neruotransmitters that counteract the effects of stress. Doing something that gives us pleasure creates more positive benefits than a stressful experience can cause harm. So instead of reducing stress, we should be deliberate in creating pleasure & enjoyment in our lives.
• Anxiety issues are off the charts in our world. Part of that reason is we are overloaded by “choice”. That may not please most of you but the truth of the matter is, we are. We are constantly on the go and truth be told most of us don’t make time for pleasure & recreation. You have to plan time to do things you enjoy it is super important to your emotional and physical health.
• When I bring this up to clients who have just ran down their list of I can’t spend time in the kitchen to eat better because I have… blah, blah, blah… Most of us are too busy to be sick too, but when sick shows up and knocks you off your feet guess what your doing, you are in bed, or stretched out on the couch and where are all those things that you stated you couldn’t move or change, they are waiting for you. I promise…. Steven Horne (AHG), gave an example “ If a wood cutter doesn’t take time to sharpen his saw or his ace, he will find himself working harder & harder while becoming less & less productive. Rest & relaxation is “saw-sharpening” time, it makes you more productive with the rest of your day. If you are busy, you can’t afford to not take time for rest & relaxation.”
• And let me assure you that saying you relax while watching television that really doesn’t count. Majority of TV programs are going to stimulate not relax, they are loaded with action, drama, stimulating background music, or topics too close to our own already stressful lives that just keep our thoughts on the stress when we relate to what we are watching. So TV doesn’t count folks, sorry. Instead, soak in a hot but, go for a massage, listen to relaxing music, take a walk in nature. Laugh and giggle. Take the time to eat slower and actually taste and enjoy your food vs. inhaling and barely chewing. Anything thing that makes you happy, brings you pleasure is going to counteract the effects of stress and reduce your anxiety.

Tomorrow, I’m going to cover the “B” which is building….

Understand What High Blood Pressure is and why it’s a problem….

This post is a bit lengthy, however…. so many people are walking around with high blood pressure, I felt this was a topic that really needed to dig beneath the surface in hopes of empowering more people to realize they have options and elements of control over the quality of their health.  So please read thru this article I think you will find some helpful & useful suggestions and information.

Many people today find themselves on prescriptions to control the aspects of their blood pressure when it continues to float in the “too high” zone.  Talking to client’s many actually state this fact like it’s as common as breathing.  Going thru their health history most don’t skip a beat, “oh yeah, I’ve got high blood pressure been on meds for years”… and they float right onto the next topic.  So I wanted to address this…

What is High Blood Pressure.. well it is a symptom that tells us that other areas are imbalanced within,  so in reality High blood pressure is not a disease in it’s own category.  What contributes to hypertension (High Blood pressure)?

Here’s how it usually goes…. When there is lots of arterial tension, the heart (a.k.a blood pumper) has to work harder to pump the blood to reach our extremities, fingers/toes….This actually results in the blood pressure reading coming in “high” and is when most end up on medications.  My real question is how many people feel their high blood pressure issues truly are cured because they take those medications?  “High blood pressure medication is not caused by a lack of high blood pressure medications and… the medication prescribed isn’t designed to cure it either” so stated .. (Tree of light publishing, Steven Horne, Registered Herbalis (AHG)

It’s meant to artificially “control” the issue but certainly not to fix the problem.  Many just take the medications and don’t question, or  change a whole bunch of anything in their daily lives or health routine.  It’s like a “fix it & forget it syndrome”, I take this pill so I’m doing my part routine.  It is symptom MANAGEMENT, but isn’t addressing much else.

What I’m about to say next is probably gonna rub some people the wrong way, but hey it is what it is… High blood pressure is a direct result of ‘LIFESTYLE”. Living in/on the fast lane, as in fast food, lack of sleep (over stimulate with caffeine), smoking, alcohol consumption, over processed “fake” foods, high stress environments.   In other countries especially the un-developed ones, high blood pressure is pretty much unheard of, why.. well, they are eating their native/traditional diets, and their lifestyles tend to less stressful.  Yet in America more than 60 million suffer with High blood pressure.

Now, when you have high blood pressure other diseases can become an issue, like we know having high blood pressure can increase your chances of heart attack, stroke, kidney issues even failure.  Most people believe that all they can change to try to get this under control is to just monitor their sodium intake.  That’s not true…. it’s helpful, but it’s not the only thing that needs to change.

There is a pretty high percentage of high blood pressure cases which classify in mild to moderate category which can really benefit with dietary & lifestyle changes.  Incorporating some herbs & dietary supplements can also be helpful.

Here are some tips I’d strongly recommend:

  1. 1.  start to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces each day in the form of pure, clean water.
  2.  make sure you are increasing the amount of dietary fiber which helps to sweep toxins & debris out of the body.
  3. If you are over weight, start to take measures to get that extra weight off with diet & exercise.
  4. If you smoke… quit!!!
  5. the body was designed to move, which is why we have hinged joints, so give up some TV time, or computer game time and move it or lose it….
  6. give up using table salt, and change it up for sea salt and this gets easier to monitor when you stop eating pre-cooked foods, like canned soups and boxed instant & frozen dinners which tend to be loaded with salt.  I think the average Campbells soup contains like 900 mg. of sodium per serving. Yikes…
  7. get rid of caffeine (stimulants can raise blood pressure)
  8. over indulgence in the alcohol category doesn’t improve blood pressure either.
  9. lean on those essential fatty acids especially Omega -3 (helps keep blood cells from being too sticky, and thins blood plasma for smoother circulation)
  10. make sure you are getting enough calcium & magnesium, many think calcium but leave out magnesium, well you need the magnesium for the body to properly absorb the calcium.

Like I stated earlier; hIgh blood pressure is a symptom not a disease all by itself.  Yet many think the heart is defective when they are told they have high blood pressure.  The heart is a pump and it’s job is to do just that, pump the blood everywhere.  So when the heart is beating harder, the blood pressure goes up, I tell people these symptoms are like your dash board lights in your car alerting you to an internal problem that needs to be addressed.  When the heart has to work harder that means something is causing some sort of a restriction to how smoothly the blood is flowing.

So in my opinion, when you are going to rely on the medication alone to reduce the pressure, that is not fixing or getting rid of any obstructions that are interfering with the blood flow.  The end result is yes you’ve decreased the bloods pressure but you still have restricted circulation especially going to the hands & feet.  Many on high blood pressure have cold feet/hands.  Basically you have now just traded one health issue to take on board another one.

So basically we have determined that the heart is having to pump too hard to do it’s job of circulating the blood all over the body, so fix the cause and the heart will stop having to work overtime.  If you simply make it easier for the blood to flow, the blood pressure is going to respond by going down.

What are some of the things that contribute to high blood pressure coming from within ?

1.  Good ole hardening of the Arteries. – this is like getting the hard water deposit build up in your pipes, the deposits are going to make the size of the blood vessels smaller inside and restricts how the blood flows thru them.  So if you have been told you have hardening of the Arteries, understand that years of over eating starches & refined sugars have contributed, as the body pH has retained more of an acidic state, so getting the starches & refined sugars out of your daily routine is a plus all the way around.  You can also incorporate some herbal assistance with Mega-Chel which works like oral chelation.

Benefits:

  • Provides a powerhouse of nutritional support for the circulatory system.
  • Provides 100% or more of the Daily Value for 10 essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Promotes healthy circulation through maintaining circulatory passageways.
  • Promotes healthy circulation through maintaining arteries, veins and capillaries.
  • Balances the glandular system.
  • http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/mega-chel-120-tabs/4201/

Now lets address Vaso-constriction:  This is all about the muscular strength in the vascular walls.  Your blood vessels have muscular walls they squeeze & release which is what helps to move the blood thru them.  When they stay squeezed (tense), there is what is referred to as vaso-constriction.  The same sort of concept occurs when someone is having an asthma attack, their bronchial tubes begin to restrict the amount of air flowing thru them and they can’t breathe, this is the same concept when it comes to vaso-constriction in  the arteries.  What contributes to vaso-constriction?  I’m so glad you asked….

  1. Stress is a big contributor – Our body has built in stress responders, the adrenal glands….when you walk up on a spider (if you’re afraid of them), almost without thinking about it you can jump back, scream and in my case I’m doing an Irish jig, couple of things happen though, the heart starts to pound, you may even sweat, get light headed, skin can get tingly, why?  Well, the body releases some hormones and a neurotransmitter called epinephrine (or many know it as adrenaline rush). The body has nerve receptors that are designed to obviously react to the epinephrine.  There are really two types of reactors, the alpha & beta.  When the beta receptors are stimulated by the hormone, they cause blood vessels to contract and the heart beats harder.  Those who have been prescribed Beta-blockers take them to help lower their blood pressure, by blocking these beta adrenergic receptor sites from registering the hormone stimulation.
  2. caffeine can over stimulate the nervous system (sympathethic deals with the adrenals) which encourages high amounts of epinephrine to be turned loose.  So if your consume large amounts of caffeine during the day, some start with coffee, then graduate to caffeinated pops or energy drinks and drink very little water.  Some of the foods that jump on board with triggering this response: alcohol, tobacco, chocolate (yes I know, I’m sorry), cheese, refined sugars, your cured meats like pork, lunch meats which majority contain MSG, which contributes as an excito-neuro-toxin…
  3. Magnesium depleted – we are bombarded with advertising that shoves calcium intake down our throats, however I believe the top most mineral deficiency suffered is in fact magnesium depletion.  When a muscles contracts, calcium ions flow into that muscles cells; as the muscle seeks to relax there is an exchange of magnesium for calcium.  Calcium is what causes the contraction and magnesium causes the relaxation of the muscle.  Many who are depleted in magnesium suffer from lots of leg & toe cramps, or those twitches under the bottle eye lid.   There is also some prescriptions used here called calcium channel blockers can be given to lower ones blood pressure.  What these drugs do is block calcium from entering the muscle tissue, which causes them to be more relaxed.  But I have found that you can also take extra magnesium and create same result.
  4. Syndrome X – This can also contribute to high blood pressure,  What in the world is Syndrome X-  hIgh insulin levels in the blood.  When someones diet has been high in the carbohydrate & sugar zone, it causes the blood vessels to become inflamed which for obvious reasons is going tor restrict flow.  When the diet is high in refined sugars or simple sugars those sugars tend to react with proteins and this reduces how elastic the blood vessels are and they lose flexibility.  Many will see results of this long before its a problem in the form of spider veins in calves & ankles.  So reducing or even eliminating simple carohydrates can be super helpful.

Some of these herbal suggestions  can be incorporated to help if you have been told you have vaso-constriction issues:

Magnesium Complex can be used in conjunction with vaso-dilative herbs to dilate blood vessels & reduce blood pressure.Magnesium is an essential mineral. It is present in more than 300 enzymatic systems where it is crucial for energy production and other metabolic functions. The heart, brain and kidneys cannot function without adequate levels of this nutrient. Magnesium is used in reaction to form Tri Carboxylic Acid (TCA), which aids in the cells’ energy-producing cycle. It is also involved in smooth muscle contractions, affecting the heart, gastrointestinal, urinary and female reproductive tracts. http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/magnesium-complex-100-caps/1859/

Hawthorn & ginkgo have both been found to dilate peripheral blood vessels and improve flow. Ginkgo biloba leaf is one of the most popular and well-studied herbs in the world. Its ability to increase circulation has been documented in numerous clinical trials. Ginkgo is a powerful free radical scavenger. It helps protect blood vessels and optimizes the amount of oxygen supplied to brain cells. It may also help support blood flow to the extremities. Hawthorn berries contain flavonoids and other compounds that may benefit the circulatory system, especially the heart. They also contain volatile oils, saponins, alkaloids, vitamins and minerals.http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/ginkgo–hawthorn-combination-100-caps/909/

Garlic can reduce blood pressure. If you take garlic on a regular basis many have reduced blood pressure by 10-15 points.  Not to mention an added benefit of the garlic is it kicks butt on blood cholesterol & triglycerides too.  http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/garlic-oil-60-softgel-caps/1694/

Blood Pressurex which contains l-arginine, which is an amino acid that acts on a chemical messenger called nitric oxide which dilates blood vessels.  The main ingredients in Blood Pressurex are the powerful herbs Coleus forskohlii, olive leaf extract, hawthorn berries extract and goldenrod; the amino acid arginine; and the antioxidants vitamin E and a powerful, proprietary grape seed extract. These combine to help protect blood vessels, promote blood flow in the peripheral arteries and inhibit cell damage. Grape seed extract contains an array of bioflavonoids, antioxidants and polyphenols. Studies suggest that grape seed extract may be beneficial for maintaining blood pressure levels and may contribute to overall cardiovascular health. http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/blood-pressurex-60-caps/554/

Lobelia – which has lobeline that acts as a natural beta blocker.  It goes together well with capiscum and a small amount of black cohost to reduce cardiac stress and angian.  improves circulation to the heart, and lower blood pressure caused by stress/tention.

Benefits:

Then there are also Adaptagens which can also assist in reducing blood pressure issues.  Like

Eleuthero Root – American & Korean ginseng, schizandra these are found in Nutri-calm

Benefits:

Also Nervous Fatigue Formula:  his TCM concentrate contains the same herbs found in Nervous Fatigue formula but in a highly concentrated blend. Traditional Chinese Medicine would consider this a fire-enhancing formula. Its Chinese name yang xin translates to “nurture the heart.” Weakness in the fire element usually manifests itself in the digestive, cardiovascular or reproductive systems. Biota seed contains aromatic compounds that have a sedative effect. These compounds also have a mild laxative effect. Jujuba seed contains bitter compounds that help promote relaxation. Schizandra fruit, a supporting herb in this formula, allows the body to respond quickly to stress, thus increasing the body’s capacity to work. Its bitter compounds also support circulation. Ginseng acts as an adaptogen to help maintain balance in the body and help the body adapt to stress.http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/nervous-fatigue-tcm-conc-30-caps/1017/

Suma Combination – SUMA Combination supplies nutrients that support the body’s regenerative functions. It is a blend of six powerful adaptogenic herbs that bolster the immune system and provide energy and emotional support. Suma root is referred to as para todo in South America, meaning “for everything.” Suma is not a true ginseng, but it shares many of ginseng’s properties. Astragalus root is a Chinese herb that also shares many properties of ginseng and is known as an energy-booster.http://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/suma-combination-100-caps/1088/

Next aspect that can contribute towards the high blood pressure problem is  “WATER RETENTION & KIDNEY FUNCTION”…..

When our body is retaining excessive fluid, it will also put pressure on our blood vessels restricting the flow issue.  Kidneys have an influence on the heart, So I believe the kidneys to be a major contributor to maintenance of our blood pressure.  Many times when someone is retaining extra fluid, they will be prescribed a diuretic to try to reduce the blood pressure.  There are some more natural versions that will act like a diuretic without the side-effects.  like the Chinese Kidney Activator –

Benefits:

We talked earlier about reducing your intake of salt, I’d again recommend trading regular table salt in favor of sea salt which can also help reduce fluid retention.  I have to say that kidney issues are usually not the 1st go to place of addressing high blood pressure, but when I have a client who says they have high blood pressure, I always encourage them to support their kidneys while making diet & exercise changes.

So there ya have it, if you are interested in scheduling a more detailed consultation based specifically on what your body says it needs, then please schedule a 1 hr. consultation (we can do these either by skype (no video) only audio, and or phone consult or in my office.  QFA Analysis is in office only, (urine & saliva).  go to. http://mkt.com/harvested-health-llc and sign up for your desired services.
