More and more people who have been diagnosed with cancer or related illnesses embrace alternative medicines, and seek out holistic practitioners who use vitamins, herbs, nutrition, homeopathy, and acupuncture to treat the disease. Donald Yance is one of the nation's most respected herbalists and his work is a  major contribution to natural healing and cancer.

A certified nutritionist and master herbalist, Yance here touches on the very broad areas of herbs, natural healing, and cancer. While critical of the established medical community for its attitude toward natural healing, whose scientific basis he tries to explain with extensive references, he nevertheless combines conventional therapies with herbs, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes to achieve the best results. Yance covers many topics but not in enough depth to make this book useful for lay readers, except for the sample recipes and coverage of the natural ways to relieve the side effects of chemotherapy. The chapters on the chemical composition of herbs and supplements are more suitable for medical doctors, herbalists, and nutritionists. Recommended for specialized collections of herbal medicine.

This is a very comprehensive discussion about alternative health and wellness. Pharmacist Ben Fuchs realized quite early that the modern medical model is in place to treat, not cure. As a registered pharmacist he also came to the early realization that synthetic drugs were not the answer to the body's natural ability to heal. The modern medical model and its standards of care mainly cuts, poisons, and burns. When someone is suffering from stomach cramps, as an example, it is recommended by a medical doctor to remove the gallbladder or even the uterus. The high incidence of thyroid removal is another symptom of this problem. Instead, more emphasis should be placed in dietary changes and proper nutrition. Humans have roamed this planet for thousands of years and have developed an incredible immune system that can combat every major disease. Instead of blaming our bodies for sounding the alarm with headaches, pains, nausea, we should thank it for being the mechanism that tells us we are not treating it well. By paying attention and calming our nervous system (reducing stress) and removing fear from our lives, our body can regenerate. And we discussed much more, including solutions and diet.

How Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets Boost Brain Health

Woman in Red With Apple On Her Head
Low-carb and ketogenic diets have many health benefits.

For example, it is well known that they can cause weight loss and help fight diabetes.

However, they are also beneficial for certain brain disorders.

This article explores how low-carb and ketogenic diets affect the brain. 

What Are Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets?

Although there is a lot of overlap between low-carb and ketogenic diets, there are also a few important differences.

Ketogenic diet:

  • Carbs are limited to 50 grams or less per day.
  • Protein is often restricted.
  • A major goal is to increase blood levels of ketones, molecules that can partly replace carbs as an energy source for the brain.

Low-carb diet:

  • Carbs can vary from 25–150 grams per day.
  • Protein is usually not restricted.
  • Ketones may or may not rise to high levels in the blood.
On a ketogenic diet, the brain is mainly fueled by ketones. These are produced in the liver when carb intake is very low.

On a standard low-carb diet, the brain will still be largely dependent on glucose, although it may burn more ketones than on a regular diet.

Allison Carmen spent many years fighting a powerful addiction. It wasn't drugs, alcohol or fame. It was an addiction to certainty. If she didn't know what the future would bring -- and who does? -- she felt anxious and afraid. This decades-long struggle followed her through college, marriage, parenthood, and a successful law career. While everything seemed fine from the outside, Allison was in a constant battle that was unwinnable, sapping her energy, attention, and spirit. Until the day she discovered The Gift of Maybe. Maybe is a simple yet powerful philosophy that has transformed Allison's life, and the life of her many clients (now that she has ditched her legal career and has become a successful life coach). The message is this: In the face of uncertainty, Maybe opens your mind and heart. It creates a little space for hope. It allows you to take a deep breath, stay in the present, and forge your own path. Many things in life are beyond our control, but the mindset of Maybe presents a simple, powerful way to stay connected to what's possible, and work to make it happen. It is just one change of perspective, but Maybe it changes everything!

After fifteen years of working as an attorney overwhelmed with anxiety about the future, Allison Carmen found hope and freedom when she discovered the Philosophy of Maybe. Today, Allison works as a life coach and business consultant with a vast array of people, from entrepreneurs and owners of multi-million dollar companies to artists, actors, writers, fashion designers, attorneys, medical workers, nannies, parents and the homeless. Over and over again, Allison has witnessed people find the courage, regardless of present circumstances, to step into the realm of Maybe and improve their lives. An active blogger and speaker, she lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.

IBM Creates A Molecule That Could Destroy All Viruses

One macromolecule to rule them all, from Ebola to Zika and the flu 

flu virus 

Finding a cure for viruses like Ebola, Zika, or even the flu is a challenging task. Viruses are vastly different from one another, and even the same strain of a virus can mutate and change--that's why doctors give out a different flu vaccine each year. But a group of researchers at IBM and the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore sought to understand what makes all viruses alike. Using that knowledge, they've come up with a macromolecule that may have the potential to treat multiple types of viruses and prevent them from infecting us. The work was published recently in the journal Macromolecules.

For their study, the researchers ignored the viruses’ RNA and DNA, which could be key areas to target, but because they change from virus to virus and also mutate, it’s very difficult to target them successfully. 

Instead, the researchers focused on glycoproteins, which sit on the outside of all viruses and attach to cells in the body, allowing the viruses to do their dirty work by infecting cells and making us sick. Using that knowledge, the researchers created a macromolecule, which is basically one giant molecule made of smaller subunits. This macromolecule has key factors that are crucial in fighting viruses. First, it’s able to attract viruses towards itself using electrostatic charges. Once the virus is close, the macromolecule attaches to the virus and makes the virus unable to attach to healthy cells. Then it neutralizes the virus’ acidity levels, which makes it less able to replicate.

McKay Jenkins, Ph.D. | ContamiNation: One Man's Quest to Survive in a Toxic World

A few years ago, journalism professor McKay Jenkins went in for a routine medical exam. What doctors found was not routine at all: a tumor, the size of a navel orange, was lurking in his abdomen. When Jenkins returned to the hospital to have the tumor removed, he was visited by a couple of researchers with clipboards. They had some questions for him. Odd questions. How much exposure had he had to toxic chemicals and other contaminants? Asbestos dust? Vinyl chlorine? Pesticides? A million questions, all about seemingly obscure chemicals. Jenkins, an exercise nut and an enviro-conscious, organic-garden kind of guy, suddenly realized hea'd spent his life marinating in toxic stuff, from his wall-to-wall carpeting, to his dryer sheets, to his drinking water. And from the moment he left the hospital, he resolved to discover the truth about chemicals and the "healthy" levels of exposure we encounter each day as Americans.

Jenkins spent the next two years digging, exploring five frontiers of toxic exposure--the body, the home, the drinking water, the lawn, and the local box store--and asking how we allowed ourselves to get to this point. He soon learned that the giants of the chemical industry operate virtually unchecked, and a parent has almost no way of finding out what the toy her child is putting in his or her mouth is made of. Most important, though, Jenkins wanted to know what we can do to turn things around. Though toxins may be present in products we all use every day--from ant spray, perfume, and grass seed to shower curtains and, yes, baby shampoo--there are ways to lessen our exposure. ContamiNation is an eye-opening report from the front lines of consumer advocacy.

Patrick McGean | Sulfur: The Forgotten Nutrient: Could You Have a Sulfur Deficiency?

S y n o p s i s 

Patrick McGean joins us to discuss how sulfur has become the forgotten nutrient. Could you have a sulfur deficiency? If you are not obtaining sulfur from your daily nutrition, you probably are. Sulfur is still missing from food, missing from the soil, and consequently, it's missing from our bodies. The incredible results you can obtain from sulfur are dependent on the quality of the sulfur and how much you take. And I'm proud to say that ever since I have been exposed to this information, early 2014, I have been taking sulfur every day and thousands of you have been buying it from gotsulfur.com. Tonight, we'll revisit all those benefits and the consequences of this important of this missing element. We also discussed a plethora of topics that you won't hear in the mainstream media. Topics you should be aware of if you want to experience life at its fullest and attain optimal health.

B i o 

In 1999 Mr. Patrick McGean's son was diagnosed with germ cell testicular cancer. He had multiple surgeries, cisplatin chemotherapy and finally an auto globus stem cell transplant. Following the transplant his oncologists declared that the treatment was unsuccessful and that he had a 3% chance of survival for the next few years. The Live Blood Study was begun with this information and the introduction to sulfur was by accident. With an intimate knowledge of blood and the cardiovascular system from the 70s it made sense to establish a way to monitor the blood photographically in hopes of being able to visualize changes which could be used to monitor the health of the participants. The blood vessels of the conjunctiva and the blood cells contained within became the model and various form of microscopes were utilized to view the vessels and the blood. Following a great deal of on line research into sulfur and the cardiovascular system we realized that the cell matrix visible in the face could be a more valuable way to establish cellular regeneration from those too far away to be subjected to having a microscope stuck into their eyes.

Patrick McGean is the father of four. A graduate in Fine Arts from the U of U in 1969. A declared Conscientious Objector to the Vietnam War he served his alternative service at the U of U Medical Center. Starting in the OR as an orderly we was promoted to Assistant OR Manger then was hired as Division Coordinator and Chief Ophthalmic Technician for the Div. of Ophthalmology.

Retinal photography is photography of the vessels of the retina along with die studies of the profusion of these vessels. This study was remarkable when one considers that the retina is part of the whole body human, not just a part of the eye. All animals have but one cardiovascular system, one blood vessel which starts and ends at the heart which pumps the river of life.

In 1976 Mr. McGean was offered a "free ride" through medical school to which he said, "Why would I want to be like the doctors I have helped train?" From 1976 to 1999 Mr. McGean's involvement with medicine was limited to reading medical journals and other health related publication.

The Live Blood and Cellular Matrix Study. The reports from our Study members are anecdotal which is not an acceptable form of information for the scientific community while if the photos support cellular regeneration then the information is substantiated.

The Study has grown not only in numbers in the US but also world wide with this change in modality. The body human is reported to regenerate all of its cells every 7 years and we hope to visualize this regeneration with digital photos which can be "magnified" to demonstrate the cells and the matrix in which they work. The human face may be a more demonstrable area for the body than foot reflexology or even iridology being that all of the cervical nerves are active and both cranial and general vascular activity can be visualized.

Many of the clinicians with whom we collaborate are adopting digital face photography as an adjunct to their written histories. Billy Crystal lampooned Fernando Llamas saying it is more important to look beautiful than to feel healthy. How can we look beautiful if we are not healthy.
