STOP, START and CHANGE: Strategies for a healthier you this year!

stop start change

Every new year usually comes with thoughts of ‘what do I need to stop, start or change’ for a healthier me? The possibilities are vast. Where do you begin? Social media offers a non-stop stream of ‘must do’ suggestions to get you healthy. There are many opinions on what is best for you on social media, magazines, the news and books. Keep in mind that you are unique and as such may need a more customized approach.

My recommendations to get you started on a healthier you this year:

Learn strategies from the places in the world where people live the longest and healthiest.  By the way; they do not go to the gym and work out or take mega supplements.  Eating a plant based diet comes with many health benefits and research has shown that it can reverse disease like heart disease, diabetes and cancer. How Not To Die of Cancer.

 

  • Whatever your health challenges, reading the right books can be a great well-being resource. I read so many books on my well-being journey, desperately searching for ‘the cure’ to my health challenges. I read, tried and tested many recommendations and have compiled the ‘short list’ for you. Learn how to overcome your well-being challenges by reading and implementing the holistic strategies that I used to overcome my multiple health challenges in my books.http://www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/books.htm. You can find an extensive list of recommended books to help restore and maintain your health in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation.

“A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way, a counsellor, a multitude of counsellors.”

DANDELION ROOT: Found to Induce Melanoma and Other Cancer Cell Death

dandelion root botanical

When we think of dandelions our thoughts go to ‘how do I eliminate those pesky invaders from my lawn”? Until I studied the medicinal benefits of herbs when I was very sick I had no respect for dandelions. Medicinal herbs have played a large role in my health recovery and I still use them regularly.  My favorite health promoting homemade tea mix contains milk thistle plant, cleavers and dandelion root. The goal in making your own tea mix is to use organic or wild crafted herbs where possible and definitely not herbs that have ever been sprayed or irradiated. Roasted dandelion root does not have the same medicinal properties as unroasted so do not waste your money on it if using it medicinally. Do not microwave your foods or beverages.

Research provides promising evidence that the abundant ‘gifts of nature’ provide cures for what ails us. If you have been following my posts you know that I am passionate about sharing research information on natural strategies that can kill cancer cells, especially melanoma. Cancer, of many types, has been a frequent visitor to our family over the years. Many of my clients have also been affected by cancer.

Following are just a few of the research studies carried out to evaluate dandelion root extract in cancer cell death.  From the conclusions it is obvious that adding dandelion root is a proactive cancer prevention and cancer fighting strategy.

Chemoresistant melanoma has become the most prevalent form of cancer for the 25-29 North American age demographic. A study carried out by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor shows that dandelion root extract (DRE) specifically and effectively induces apoptosis in human melanoma cells without inducing toxicity in noncancerous cells. Read more about the research through the link below.

Pancreatic cancer has a 100% mortality rate. Dandelion root extract has the potential to induce apoptosis and autophagy in human pancreatic cancer cells with no significant effect on noncancerous cells. For more on the research visit the link below.

Selective induction of apoptosis and autophagy through treatment with dandelion root extract in human pancreatic cancer cells.

In the study below by the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Windsor examined the cancer cell-killing effectiveness of an aqueous dandelion root extract in colon cancer cell models

Dandelion root extract affects colorectal cancer proliferation and survival through the activation of multiple death signalling pathways.

What else can you do to stack your cancer prevention, cancer remission and well-being odds?

  1. For starters – gain a better understanding of causes of cancer.

The Environmental Working Group reports on a ‘rethink’ of carcinogens (cancer causing agents) through the research done by The Halifax Project. According to the article that follows; “The evidence is now compelling that chemicals in the environment are a significant factor in the risk of developing cancer, and a new series of reports from an international scientific collaboration called the Halifax Project suggests that the risk may be greater than we realize.”

2. Deal with the toxins in your environment via a two part strategy:

First stop adding to your body pollution and second deal with existing body pollution. I work with clients to help them implement both of these necessary strategies for cancer prevention and health recovery. You can find my holistic protocol that I use to walk clients through the steps in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation.

3. Add in natural cancer prevention and health promoting strategies – ‘gifts from nature’. You can find an extensive list of natural health promoting strategies in my holistic protocol found in The Whole Person Well-being Equation.

Wishing you optimum health and happiness!

LEMONGRASS: Powerful Anti-Fungal and Anti-Cancer Activity

lemongrasscure

There are many scientifically-confirmed benefits of lemongrass, including its ability to destroy harmful pathogens, promote healthy stools, inhibit damaging fungi, reduce inflammation, protect against DNA damage, guard against malaria, neutralize damaging free radicals, balance cholesterol levels, modulate healthy sleep patterns, and so much more.

Lemon grass essential oil is highly effective in vapour phase against Candida albicans, leading to deleterious morphological changes in cellular structures and cell surface alterations – http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6882/10/65/.

A 2009 study published in the journal Chemico-Biological Interactions revealed that lemongrass essential oil is effective in targeting at least 12 different human cancer cell lines.

A more recent study published in the journal Pharmacognosy Communications reveals that lemongrass is also effective against cervical cancer. Researchers found that lemongrass not only stops cervical cancer cells (as well as several other types of cancer cells) from spreading, but it also initiates cancer cell apoptosis, also known as programmed cell death. https://anoilforeverything.wordpress.com/.

CANCER: A Result of Your Body’s Polluted Chemical Equation?

YOUR BODY’S POTENTIALLY HARMFUL CHEMICAL EQUATION

Although there are cases of cancer that are attributed to a specific gene mutation or predisposition, many cases of cancer are now thought to be the result of environmental toxins. Healthy genes can be turned into oncogenes, found in cancer, when triggered by environmental factors. New research at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia is revealing that the combination of specific toxins are risk factors for breast and other types of cancer.  The Canadian-led “Halifax Project,” including 174 scientists from 26 countries, is rocking scientific approaches to causes of cancer with its series published in the peer-reviewed journal, Carcinogenesis.

MUSCLE RESPONSE TESTING: A Holistic Health Strategy That Can Change Your Health

hands

When my immune and nervous systems crashed many years ago, I suffered from multiple unexplained symptoms including multiple food allergies, gastrointestinal distress, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities and spiralling depression. There were times all I could do was crawl. Although I had my symptoms investigated by my doctor and other doctors; there was no cause determined.  I was prescribed medication which did nothing to relieve my symptoms.

I was concerned that if I ate out (including at family events) I would not be able to determine if the foods I was eating were safe; so I learned muscle response testing or bio-kinesiology to test the foods before I ate them.

Once I mastered the muscle response testing I used it to test the foods and products I was using and purchasing; the water I drank and bathed in and the air I breathed in my different environments. Making changes in my diet, products and home environment and life based on the muscle response testing results (so that I could avoid them) basically saved my life.  My body stopped the vigilance and reacting and concentrated its energies on healing and energy production.

What is muscle response testing?

Muscle response testing, or neuromuscularbiofeedback, is a biofeedback testing method. It uses feedback from the body and brain (your virtual black box) as information.  Other forms of biofeedback include taking a pulse, taking a blood pressure and listening to the heart with a stethoscope.” In the 1950s, Dr. Arthur Coca identified that his wife’s heart rate would increase if she ate a food that provoked an inappropriate or allergic response. This was, as Dr. Coca put it, ‘accidentally acquired knowledge’ which he then applied to patients as well as his wife. The results were very effective and consistent.”  Similarly muscle response testing provides information about foods and substances ingested, inhaled and applied to the body as well as environmental factors.

You may ask, “what do the muscle testing results mean”?

Sometimes it means you are allergic to the items tested. The resulting biofeedback ‘weak response’ can be indicative of an association your body has made about a product, substance or situation in the past at a time of extreme trauma or duress. A ‘weak response’ can also mean that something is going on in the body at this time, which added to the use of the product or substance (ingredients) or recall of a past similar association; is a temporary bad combination (e.g. during detoxification, rapid growth, healing, recovery, hormone change, distress, treatment, medications, your body’s present chemical equation).

Generally speaking it means that the item or factor is causing confusion, interference, imbalance, disruption, malfunction or damage. Your body’s chemical equation may be altered – resulting in unwanted symptoms. Sometimes it is to the immune system, sometimes to the nervous, endocrine or other systems, and sometimes to the liver or heart; all necessary to stay strong and healthy. If this happens on a daily/weakly basis the accumulative results can be catastrophic, particularly if your are fighting degenerative or life threatening diseases like cancer.

Biofeedback information gives you valuable direction as to what you can ‘stop, start and change’ daily for a healthier you!

stopstartcont

Previous to learning and using muscle response testing I had tried many strategies to protect and restore my health, conventional and non-conventional. I can honestly tell you that nothing that I tried has had the impact on my health recovery that muscle response testing for protection has. The reason is that using this biofeedback method provided me with daily ongoing warnings from my virtual  ‘black box’. I am now 100% food allergy free, 100% depression free, chemical sensitivity free and able to go into any environment safely. I have abundant energy and feel good.

Learning and using muscle response testing to test your food, water and supplements can provide for ‘a healthier you’.  Protecting you from potential harm and directing you to safe, healthier options.

For all of you who have been suffering with chronic and unexplained symptoms and serious health challenges like cancer, or if you want confidence in your food and supplement decisions – I encourage you to learn to use my method of muscle response testing – it can significantly change your health and allow you to get back to your life and the pursuit of meaningful goals.

THE WEAK LIST: A Necessary Well-being Tool: http://mybodycanhealitself.ca/wordpress/?p=74

Gerda Hammond commented on the upcoming EMBRACING CHANGE Retreat: “Looking forward to the workshop! Manifesting change in my life started with letting go of old beliefs and embracing new ways of thinking. Doing things differently, I am becoming a truer version of myself. Believing in the power of my body to heal itself has been difficult, but knowing power is not equal to force, changes everything. By observing nature and intuitions, life flows. I would recommend you take the step to opening your mind to changing the way you look at life and be part of the upcoming workshop. You can have a healthier and more fulfilling life, but it requires making a conscious decision to move forward in a different unconventional direction. You are in the drivers seat and Elisabeth Hines will help you with your journey to well being one step at a time. Regardless of your challenges, this workshop will give you something to think about and hopefully give you the courage to move forward to joyful living.”

“That butterfly reminds me of the crippling caterpillar phobia I had for over 50 years. When you fear something you see them everywhere and it was so embarrassing and crippling. Thanks Elisabeth for curing me. I know you don’t want to take the credit but if I hadn’t met you I would not have been ‘cured’. I sound like a broken record but I can actually touch these creatures now and be amazed I can do that!!! If I could I would send anyone with a phobia to you.”

Read the previous post,  PHOBIAS: Breaking The Associations To Live Without Fear, and Mary’s testimony, about her life changing recovery from a 50 year caterpillar phobia; using my holistic protocol. For those of you who are unable to make it to the retreat, you can find my holistic protocol in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION, my website and blog information.

Workshops are available. Host a workshop at your location and receive hosting gifts – http://mybodycanhealitself.ca/wordpress/?page_id=1683.
