Hello Its me again,
I am very passionate of THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE for what type of treatment you wish to have. I feel it is up to the individual person to educate themselves on what is out there. I am going to spend a lot of time in fighting for this with insurance companies as well as expressing the other ways to give you the quality of life you deserve.
My mission is to give life to a bad situation by having you gain knowledge. There is no reason why in this day and age we not look at all the natural treatments that have been going on for many thousands of years. Please if you ever are in a situation where a doctor told you IT IS WHAT IT IS and this is the only way we can treat your problem ~ don't just give in; RESEARCH. The internet is a great tool. There are a lot of books out there in the market place that also are very helpful. I have started this blog to give some sense of direction in this scary world we are living in. I am not asking you to live in a bubble, but to think outside the box and do something about where we are going.
I have been going through a healing process for the past 10 months and through this process I have realized that it is a REAL BIG problem and people need to know about the condition we are to believe is right. Just look at the processed foods we are eating. Do you know what it is made of ~ is it real or fake???
With the help of amazing doctors, I chose this program and my cancer is being managed and controlled with success FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE.
Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.
Functional Medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
There are seven basic principles underlying functional medicine which include the following:
Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness.
Patient-centered care rather than disease-focused treatment.
Dynamic balance of internal and external factors that affect total functioning.
Web-like interconnections among the body's physiological processes also affect every aspect of functionality.
Health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease.
Promotion of organ reserve
Integrated Medicine couples the latest scientific advances with the most profound insights of ancient healing systems, giving you the best ways to preserve health, increase longevity and speed recovery from illness.
Integrated Medicine is a revolutionary approach to healing people — not just treating diseases — using the unique tool called person-centered diagnosis.
Integrated Medicine recognizes that the outcome of all health care is strongly dependent upon four powerful influences in the lives of each person. These four pillars of healing are:
|- Relationship. The social |
support network: family,
and a strong-patient
|- Diet and lifestyle. Nutrition |
, habits, and the daily pattern
of rest and exercise.
|- A healthy environment. |
Protection from chemical
and biological toxins.
|- Detoxification. The body’s |
ability to self-purify and
protect itself from
Integrated Medicine allows you to find optimal health by understanding your individual needs for achieving balance and harmony.
The Dendritic Cell is a newly emerging and potent form of immune therapy used to treat cancer conditions. In case of cancer, Dendritic Cell therapy is an immune therapy which harnesses the body's own immune system to fight cancer. The Dendritic Cell itself is an immune cell whose role is the recognition, processing and presentation of foreign antigens to the T-cells in the effecter arm of the immune system. Although Dendritic Cells are potent cells, they are not usually present in adequate quantity to allow for a potent immune response. Dendritic Cell Therapy thus involves the harvesting of blood cells (ie monocytes or macrophages) from a patient and processing them in the laboratory to produce Dendritic Cells which are then given back to a patient in order to allow massive Dendritic participation in optimally activating the immune system.
The concept for Hyperthermia perfusion is to warm up the patients blood slowly up to 42-43 degree celsius, which is Fahrenheit 107.6 degrees Celsius (42) or 109.4 C (43). This will be like having a mild fever.
This procedure is continued for anywhere from one hour to two hours. This depends on the patients homodynamic stability and blood gas results. The flow is a very low flow, around 30 to 80 ml/min. A high flow is not necessary, just as long as it is continuous. A linear flow is better. This is done by providing a constant low flow at a warm temperature. The patient is awake and this enables the perfusionist and the doctor, who are both present the entire procedure; to monitor the patient closely.
The console that provides the temperature and flow is regulated by perimeters dialed in. The patient has a monitor which reveals the: EKG, respiratory rate, arterial saturation and the blood pressure. ACT’s are run the length of the case to insure proper anticoagulation, so no clots form in the software.
The patient will experience no discomfort. The patient can sit up, read, talk with us, work on the computer or the I pad, watch television, drink beverages, or converse with family in the patients room. Most patients will feel warm and perspire. The color is great and they feel good. The ACT is allowed to become normal before the patient leaves the room.
The Hyperthermia procedure allows the CANCER cell membrane to become warm and enhances the treatments that are to be given. The temperature increases also burns the CANCER cells because they cannot survive in this temperature of 42-43 degree.
The results seen are very good. There is no chemo medications in this Hyperthermia procedure. It is warming the patients blood with a small amount of Heparin (*5,000 units) in the priming volume. Therefore, the patients experience only the warmth running through their entire body.
If anyone would like to discuss this, I am always available. I have been a perfusionist for over 30 years. I take very good care of all the patients and I also am very lucky to have great physicians with whom I work with, which provides the best of the best of care to all our patients.
My diet consists of both , cooked and raw vegetables, high quality protein fish, some beans, nuts and seeds. My diet also included a small amount of gluten=free grains. This is a very good diet for me based on my current health condition.
The diet recommended at home is aimed at starving cancer and is a very low in sugar, including breads, grains and fruits. This should be followed for about 6 months or longer, if needed. Once cancer-free, other foods will be re-introduced.
1. Eliminate all sugars especially refined
2. Avoid gluten
3. Eliminate damaged oils from your diet
4. Drink an intestinal health shake
5. Drink plenty of pure water
6. Eliminate fatty, charred,or grilled foods
7. Select organic meat, poultry and dairy
8. Take extra fiber daily
Walk, bike cycling, bands and ball. I do three to four times a day for about an hour.
FOCUS ON TODAY, IT IS THE ONLY MOMENT WHERE WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE. DON’T LET CANCER RULE YOUR LIFE. CANCER IS SOMETHING THAT WAS ADDED TO YOUR LIFE; DON’T LET IT BE THE MAIN FOCUS. MEDITATE, BREATH IN THROUGH YOUR MOUTH AND OUT THROUGH YOUR NOSE. NO STRESS…
MEDITATION IS A BIG KEY TO MANAGING ANY ILLNESS.
I wanted to share it with you which was written by the psychologist.
Imagery and relaxation, have you ever been in a place where you have felt completely at peace? Where you can forget about all of your problems? Where you can breathe in deeply and enjoy a beautiful view or maybe a beautiful company? Think about it for a minute? Have you?
It is very likely that you have. However, many times it’s very difficult to be in a place like this every time we want to, although it is very healthy to keep our mind in the mental state that this place can evoke.
So, that’s when imagery and relaxation techniques come handy. In fact, these techniques do more than just bring our mental state to relaxation, they can actually help us relieve pain, speed healing and help the body suppress hundreds of ailments, including depression, allergies and asthma. In addition, letting go of our problems, worries and concerns for a little while and recharging energy are two other good reasons for practicing this.
Relaxation is being completely at ease, mentally and physically Imagery is any words that create a picture in our head; it is the biological connection between the mind and the body. Whatever spontaneous thought or image we get throughout the day is going to affect the way we feel emotionally as well as physically. For example, whenever you imagine your favorite meal, the way it smells, the way it looks, how good it tastes, chances are, you’ve going to salivate.
Unfortunately, many of the images in our heads do more harm than good. We are so used to worry or think of the negative possibilities of the situations that we end up tensing our body and depressing the immune system. Obviously, the idea is to use this same power of imagery and relaxation for our own benefit.
Intention, quieting, cleansing and recharging are the components of healing the state of mind through imagery and relaxation. The intention is key to succeed. We need to want to relax, believe that it can help and be willing to turn our senses away from the outside world and into the inner world. We also need to do it in a quite place so we can focus better and easier. As we go through the process, it is important to imagine our body getting cleansed and recharged.
By now you know the reasons, components and benefits of relaxation-imagery techniques. In the next paragraph, you will find a sample of a techniques you can practice, add to it or adapt to your own needs. It is important to focus on your breathing. Inhaling deeply through your nose and exhaling through your mouth is fundamental to be able to relax. Make sure you are in a comfortable room with a comfortable chair or couch, loose clothing and low light.
SAMPLE OF RELAXATION-IMAGERY TECHNQUE:
Begin by closing your eyes….and releasing the air in your lungs. Take in a full, deep breath through your nose, allowing your lungs to fill up completely, letting the air go all the way in… and then sighing it out through your open mouth. Get as comfortable as you can…do a body scan through feet, legs, hips, abdomen and torso and releases all of the tension… breath in deeply, through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Do a scan through your arms, hands, chest, shoulders, face and head, release the tension and relax. Remember to breath in deeply, through your nose and as you exhale feel more and more relaxed. Do this as many times as you need to, to become completely relaxed. Focus on your thoughts…identify your mood and imagine a beautiful place. Look at the details, the colors, the smell, the texture…admire this place…enjoy it. Breathe in deeply and exhale through your mouth…with every breath, inhale positive energy and as you exhale spread this positive energy throughout your body. Let this beautiful place be the source of positive healing energy.. spread this healing energy through your entire body. Give yourself permission to be relaxed… to enjoy this place. Stay there until you have filled your body with positive, healing energy. Remember to breath deeply through your nose and exhale through your mouth. When you are ready, come back to the present, take a deep breath open your eyes.
DON’T FORGET TO:
PUT THIS INTO PRACTICE, THE MORE YOU DO IT, THE EASIER IT WILL BECOME AND THE RESULTS WILL ALSO GET BETTER.
THE MOST EFFECTIVE IMAGES ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE SOME MEANING TO YOU.
WHEN BATTLING TUMORS, PEOPLE MIGHT IMAGINE THAT THEIR HEALTHY CELLS ARE STRONG, HEALTHY SOLDIERS GETTING RID OF ALL THE CANCEROUS CELLS.
BE PATIENT AND CONSISTENT.
