As recently mentioned in one of our previous articles, America is experiencing a rapidly rising shortage of medical drugs that are important to everyday survival. Almost instantly, we are about to add one more drug to that list. And this one could have even more of a negative impact than the other drugs that are in short supply.
It seems like there’s a pill to treat or cure anything that ails you . . . meaning pharmaceutical profits are through the roof. Often those drugs are semi-effective; sometimes they’re very effective, and sometimes they’re not effective at all.
But could a new drug the FDA just approved actually be the real deal? Or is it just another way to pad Big Pharma's pockets?
Prostate cancer remains a leading cause of cancer-related death for men in developed countries. One in six men will fight prostate cancer in their lifetime, and in many cases this disease is aggressive and difficult to treat using conventional therapies alone.
With World Cancer Day just a few days away on Saturday, February 4, it’s only appropriate to take a look at all of the progress that’s been made in the last 50 years in terms of cancer survivorship
, research and treatments.
Ladies (and guys) . . . if you like wine as much as many of my friends and relatives do, you may have wondered just exactly how to balance the health benefits with the health risks
Galectin-3 can be referred to as a “rogue” molecule in the body, as it is now proven to be a major cause of nearly every chronic disease. From cancer, cardiovascular disease and liver cirrhosis, to arthritis and Alzheimer’s, excess Galectin-3 is at the root, wreaking havoc by igniting and fueling the deadly processes of inflammation, fibrosis, abnormal cellular growth and more.
I recently gave a keynote presentation on Galectin-3 as a breakthrough biomarker for numerous life-threatening diseases, and shared new research on the critical role of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) as the foremost Galectin-3 blocker.
If you prefer to catch some rays in the morning to get your daily dose of vitamin D
, you may have a reduced risk of skin cancer from exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays. Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill teamed up to find out if UV rays could be more or less damaging during different times of day.
In what seems like the hundredth report that has studied the link between cell phone use and cancer
, a new study that describes itself as the “largest study on the matter” has concluded that cell phones do not
cause cancer. The Danish researchers behind the report, which has been published online in the British Medical Journal
, studied a very large number of people and are confident that there is no link between cell phone usage and brain tumors.
I recently presented the critical role of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) and Polybotanicals in integrative cancer breakthroughs.
If you’ve been trying for a baby for some time now, and have been unsuccessful
, you might find yourself asking the question . . . “How far am I willing to go to conceive a child?” Would you risk the chance of developing cancer? Recent research has indicated that may very well be a risk you would be taking if you turn to fertility treatments.
I recently shared a new breakthrough on Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) and the role of Galectin-3 in health and disease in a poster presentation during the 8th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology.
I recently attended Medical Week in Baden-Baden, Germany, where I presented the principles of integrative medicine and the latest research on the role of Modified Citrus Pectin in the treatment of cancer.
Breast cancer survivors go through A LOT. They've endured chemotherapy, mastectomies, and reconstructive surgery
, often followed by more chemotherapy and/or radiation. It seems like they've been through just about everything, but there is one adversary remaining in the form of . . . wait, the TSA? Heightened security measures at airports have proved a nuisance to us “normal” folks, but to medical patients with implants or internal devices, such as those found in breast cancer survivors, these airport security protocols can be downright embarrassing and uncalled for.
The positive evidence for fish oil, as well as for my polybotanical breast formula and other breast health compounds and ingredients, is substantial and impressive. Whatever treatment path you decide, it’s helpful to know that there are numerous natural adjuncts available which can help improve your clinical outcome.
How many males in your life do you know that have had breast cancer
? Probably not as many as women that you’ve known with the disease! There are two common misconceptions about male breast cancer. The first and most prevalent one is that males get it very seldom, and the second is that when males do get it, they have a much poorer outlook.
What if you could detect one of the leading causes of death in women, simply by using a cooking ingredient? That's exactly what nurses and doctors are doing in developing countries where cervical cancer
is prevalent and pap smear tests are too costly and time consuming. Using regular household vinegar, health experts are able to detect any precancerous bumps or warts and treat them before they become malignant.
Marijuana might just be the American public's worst kept secret, with so many people smoking it either behind closed doors or on the way to see a Damian Marley concert. Apart from the recreational use, marijuana actually does have some medical benefits
to those who are terminally ill or living with severe pain.
Women who have breast cancer
and have been through a mastectomy know how hard it is to look in the mirror and see themselves in a different light. Even after the brutal rounds of chemotherapy and its associated side effects
like hair loss, severe nausea and weight loss, it seems one really, truly can't prepare for the loss of a breast – or two. Luckily, in addition to the current procedures available for breast reconstruction, scientists have now made huge advances in a new technique that reattaches blood vessels and uses the patient's own skin.
I recently discussed the principles of integrative medicine in oncology and shared the latest research on the role of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) in the treatment of cancer at an international oncology conference in Rhodes, Greece.
