LATEST CANCER INFORMATION

LATEST CANCER INFORMATION
from Johns Hopkins


AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND
ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS
AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …


1.
Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not
show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few
billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer
cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are
unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the
detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.


3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be
destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4.
When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental,
food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple
nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will
strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves
poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys
rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal
tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs
etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.


8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce
tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not
result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much
toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is
either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various
kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and
radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and
difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to
other sites.


11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one
important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like
NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is
harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses
but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make
it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.



b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and
substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.


c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is
acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef
or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and
parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.


d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds,
nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.
About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable
juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to
cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of
healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy
cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including
bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes
are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).


e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea
is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water--best
to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy
metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12.
Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive
enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become
putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell
walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less
meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells
and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.


14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,
Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the
body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like
vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the
body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded
cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A
proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a
survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a
stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving
spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot
thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep
breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen
therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Hello September

I realised this page is grossly neglected. I've been so caught up with work and voluntary work and before I know it, I've hit the big 3 already.

A lot of things happened, I don't even know where to begin. I watched a video of Steve Jobs yesterday, a speech that he gave at one of the graduation ceremony for a university. In his speech he said this:

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

I have been through ups and downs in life, happy moments and sad moments. Most of us would have. Looking back, I am thankful for the experiences life has thrown at me. It made me a better and stronger person. I've learnt to be at peace with myself.

Every morning when I wake up, I look forward to a happy and great day. This feeling is wonderful. Life is wonderful.

50 ways to say goodbye - Train

Such a funny song. Hahaha


"50 Ways To Say Goodbye"

My heart is paralyzed
My head was oversized
I'll take the high road like I should
You said it's meant to be
That it's not you, it's me
You're leaving now for my own good

That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say

She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntanned
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died

My pride still feels the sting
You were my everything
Some day I'll find a love like yours (a love like yours)
She'll think I'm Superman
Not super minivan
How could you leave on Yom Kippur?

That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say

She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!
She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died

I wanna live a thousand lives with you
I wanna be the one you're dying to
Love...but you don't want to

That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say
That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say

Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies

Love at first light

I like this year's NDP theme's song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANTvzs6Hzpc

Everytime it comes to NDP, it reminds me that my bday is coming. Turning 30 this year. Having mixed feelings about that... And that makes my LJ 10 years old.

Wow.

Truly truly inspirational.

The Ironman Triathlon - 4km swim, 180km cycling, 42km run. Not an easy feat for a normal person. Imagine having to do the Ironman Triathlon, carrying, pushing, pulling your paralized 50kg son to complete the triathlon.

A father's love and their love for other paralyzed children. It all started when the son asked the father if he could take part in a charity run together with him for a paralyzed teenager. Dick Hoyt was not a runner and was nearly 37 years old. After their first race Rick said, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.” After their initial five mile run, Dick began running every day with a bag of cement in the wheelchair because Rick was at school and studying, unable to train with him.There was no turning back since.

Despite the son's handicap, the father didn't give up on him and fought hard to have him go to a normal school. The son graduated with a degree from Boston University.

As of November 2011, the Hoyts had competed in 1069 endurance events, including 69 marathons and six Ironman triathlons.[10] They had run the Boston Marathon 29 times. Also adding to their list of achievements, Dick and Rick biked and ran across the U.S. in 1992, completing a full 3,735 miles in 45 days.

This year, father would be 72 yrs old and son 50 yrs old, and they are still participating in races.

Dick and Rick Hoyt. Team Hoyt.

My fighter baby

Been neglecting my journal for a long time.




My baby boy gave me a heart attack twice. First time, was when I noticed him wincing in pain when he tried to lie on his side. Brought him to the vet and detected he had heart murmur and fluids in the heart.

Condition was under control for a while and fluids seem to have cleared so the vet asked me to stop the meds to clear the fluids in the heart. 

Few weeks later, one Sunday afternoon, I noticed he has having running nose.I thought to monitor for a day and if he is still having running nose, I'll bring him to the vet the next morn.

That night, I got a shock when I carried him out to syringe feed him his food and meds. He was limp. I called the emergency line and had the vet rushed down to the clinic. I rushed Bernbern to the clinic and he was put in oxygen tank and injected with fusimide to clear the fluids in his heart.

His oxygen reading was very bad. Usual reading should be above 90 and his reading was 50 plus, and at good times, it went up to 70. The vet prepared me for the worst. They didn't allow me to stay overnight with him so I had to go home. 

I spent the night sleepless and sent him healing and positive energy. The vet called in the morn and said his oxygen reading went up to 90+. I could bring him back home in the afternoon if they can wean him off the oxygen tank and get him breathing properly in room setting.

That afternoon, I brought Bernbern home. Vet bill was about $800, I should have studied veterinary. 

My fighter baby. I'm so proud of you. You are such a tiny boy yet you have the will of a giant. I know the heart murmur can't be cured. I can only do my best to stop it from deteriorating even more. I have faith in you baby. I know you can do it. Mummy will fight alongside with you.

Jia you baobei. I love you.

17-year-old Meghan Vogel was in last place in the 3,200-meter run when she caught up to competitor Arden McMath, whose body was giving out. Instead of running past her to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel put McMath's arm around her shoulders, carried her 30 meters, and then pushed her over the finish line before crossing it.
