Could bacteria and related microbes, widely believed to be a primary cause of disease, explain how we are capable of surviving through the self-created chemical nightmare of industrialized society?
From the perspective of conventional cancer treatment a diagnosis of multi-drug resistant cancer is equivalent to a death sentence. By the time such a diagnosis occurs, the patient’s body has been devastated by chemotherapy and radiation, and an even more aggressive cancer has emerged to take the place of the original one.
About one hundred times less toxic than chemotherapy, turmeric extract (curcumin) was found more effective at killing colorectal cancer stem cells from patients than a popular combination of conventional drugs.
The benefits of grape seed extract in cancer are well documented, but modern medicine won't do anything with it until the mechanism of action has been found, so that it can be isolated, purified, made poisonous and owned by a single company for enormous profits.
This quick overview of the science backs up the assertion that every cancer patient and every oncologist should put medical marijuana on their treatment maps.
The human body's entire metabolic process depends on one critical factor - the pH of the plasma fluids. The pH scale is very simple. The lower the readings on the pH scale are acidic and the higher readings are more alkaline. Through homeostasis, the body maintains a healthy plasma pH of 7.4. Although the pH of the body will fluctuate with meals, exercise, stress, hormones and sleep, a healthy and balanced saliva pH should be between 7.0 to 7.5.
Breast cancer is one of the major killers of women in the United States. Sadly, most women have no idea that simply not wearing a bra can have a major impact on the likelihood of developing breast cancer.
Hippocrates - the father of medicine - said, "Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food." Medicines are a subset of foods, according to Hippocrates. I like that. What are medicines today? What are foods?
Several recent international studies have illustrated that seaweeds and their extracts may have the capability of inhibiting and even treating cancer. Seaweed therapy may even outperform chemotherapy.

Have we lost the war against cancer? With the failure of chemotherapy, is there another alternative to fighting cancer?
A 17-year old is being forced to receive chemotherapy that is guaranteed to cause her premature death. Will you stand up to save her?
A traditional food plant that has been used for thousands of years to improve health and well-being, is finally being validated by science. The results? It may be far superior to a chemotherapy agent with deadly side effects and dubious efficacy.
Considering that the conventional treatment of advanced stage pancreatic cancer can result in as little as a 1% 5-year survival rate, new preclinical research on a liposomal turmeric extract that inhibits pancreatic tumor growth by 42% is all the more promising.
There is a difference between someone who is unhealthy and someone who is sick. Part of that difference is the viewpoint, from which we look. When we look from a medical viewpoint - we tend to find illness. When we look from a healthicine view point - we are more able to see and understand healthiness and unhealthiness.
Medicine is defined, by Wikipedia, as 'the science and art of healing'.
The body heals.
Conventional cancer treatments aren't working for women with breast cancer. Women are falling into a cancer industry machine only to be spit out at the other end, permanently damaged and still with no reasonable assurance of long-term survival.
Should we be looking for disease in people who don't have any symptoms? A large new study indicates the answer is NO.
With chemotherapy resistant cancers on the rise, and conventional drug treatments often doing more harm than good, research on omega 3 fatty acids reversing multidrug resistance in colon cancer cells holds all the more promise.
The ancient Indian spice turmeric strikes again! A new study finds it is capable of selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation can not.
A new scientific review identifies 25 of the top foods and herbs which kill the cancer stem cells at the root cause of cancer malignancy.
Everyone talks about inflammation, but what is it really?
Cancer can no longer be viewed as something bad that happens to an intrinsically healthy body. Rather, cancer is something the body actively does in response to an intrinsically unhealthy cellular, bodily and planetary environment.
Too many of us blindly put faith into different authorities, but when it comes to personal health and diet, your self knowledge and gut intuition should be your guide.
When it comes to cancer treatment, chemotherapy does more harm than good. There are other, non-toxic approaches that are worth exploring.
