We all have at least a few cancerous cells floating around in our “inner terrain”. A decent immune system residing in a slightly alkaline or neutral pH inner terrain is able to fend them off and keep them from colonizing into tumorous masses. But, those who eat primarily the SAD (Standard American Diet), which includes lots of factory farmed meat and junk foods saturated with refined sugars or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), along with refined grain baked products, are adding fuel to the fire of cancer. Otto Warburg, (1930’s Nobel Peace Prize winner) wrote that when normal cells begin to lack oxygen respiration to utilize glucose (sugar) and nutrients for cellular energy, they depend on fermenting sugar to thrive without oxygen and become cancerous. Cancer cells consume sugar about 19x faster than healthy cells. The first concern with preventing or eliminating cancer should be what you put into your body. That gives you control over cancer. The bottom line of this study: sugar is carcinogenic as well as fodder for already existing cancer cells. Don’t confuse refined sugar with naturally occurring sugars in plant foods. Sugar from organic produce may not contribute to cancer cell growth like refined sugar/HFCS. realfarmacy.com
Just 10 minutes of exercise can boost your brainpower for a short time afterward, according to a recent study. The researchers found that study participants who rode a stationary bike at a moderate to vigorous pace for 10 minutes answered questions 50 milliseconds faster after exercising than they did before, a 14% increase in cognitive performance. womenshealthmag.com
In a recent study published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, Chiropractic, it was shown that chiropractic care may help resolve fecal incontinence following regular chiropractic adjustments. An 8-year-old female with pelvic (hips) unleveling and a history of irregular bowel movements presented to a chiropractic clinic with signs of spinal misalignments (vertebral subluxations). Previous attempts of altered potty training habits and stool softeners were unsuccessful in regulating her bowel movements. The girl received subluxation based chiropractic care and improvements began after two weeks of care. After six weeks of care the fecal incontinence was resolved, with the patient having no accidents for the first time in her life. While there is limited research on the effect of chiropractic care on these types of cases, studies, including this one, have shown that chiropractic adjustments may have a positive effect on the outcomes. Who do you know that could benefit from Chiropractic care? vertebralsubluxationresearch.com
Papayas are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium, copper, and magnesium; and fiber. Together, these nutrients promote the health of the cardiovascular system and also provide protection against colon cancer. Papaya also contains the digestive enzyme, papain, which is a similar enzyme found in pineapple, to treat sports injuries, other causes of trauma, and allergies. whfoods.com

I can totally keep secrets. It’s the people I tell them to that can’t.
