What is all this fuss about gluten? Is there really a health concern, or is it just another trendy diet fad? Evidence is now very strong that eating gluten is detrimental to your health, even if you do not have any outright symptoms of sensitivity, and even in very small amounts.  Why is this? First of all, there is no enzyme in the human digestive tract that properly breaks down gluten.  It causes inflammation in everyone, even if there are no symptoms.  Gluten causes the production of a hormone called zonulin which damages the integrity of the intestinal wall, causing gaps between the cells.  ThisRead More →

In my last post, I discussed the importance of eliminating sugar, especially refined sugar, and in particular, high fructose corn syrup. Now, we are going to discuss fat in the diet.  Fat has been blamed for causing many health conditions, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. The truth of the matter is, that fat is an essential nutrient that contains vitamins and minerals not found elsewhere in the food supply.  Fat is also essential for the absorption of certain minerals and fat-soluble vitamins such as A (retinol), K2, E and D. If you are interested in treating or preventing cancer, the importantRead More →

There are two main principles here – support the natural function of the body, especially the immune system, and stop feeding the cancer.  Cancer cells are known to use a fermentation process that is dependent on glucose. Very simply, stop eating sugar, and you starve the cancer cells. This means ALL sugar – processed, natural, and even high-sugar fruits.  The most dangerous sugars are the processed forms, such as high fructose corn syrup.  Along with feeding cancer, fructose is toxic to the liver which impairs the immune system.  Fructose consumption also leads to high blood pressure, gout, fatty liver, obesity, and diabetes. Beware of ‘natural’Read More →

I have heard on more than one occasion the opinion of conventional oncologists that diet does not affect the results of cancer treatment. Seriously – how can what you put in your body not affect the outcome of a treatment plan?  Conventional practitioners are trained in this magic-bullet, kill the disease approach in which the body has no input or influence on the process.  It is also the case that conventional treatments have made no gains in treating cancer, and more and more people are being diagnosed all the time.  So, maybe a different approach is needed here… I contend that we must look atRead More →

There are many factors that can lead to the development of cancer in your body.  Conventional medicine often tells the story that getting cancer is genetic, or just ‘bad luck’.  I contend that there is much more to the picture.  There are many aspects of your lifestyle, including what you eat and drink, exercise, your job, family life, environmental toxins, thoughts and beliefs, among others, that can contribute to the development of cancer.  The combination of causes will be different for everyone, and I believe that deep inside, every cancer patient knows which imbalance is causing their disease.  It can be difficult, however, to seeRead More →

How do you know if your gut is leaky, or your microbiome is out of balance?  The most important part of this answer is that it may not show up as digestive symptoms.  That’s right, your gut may have lost its ability to function properly and you may not notice anything different in that part of your body.  Have you ever felt tired or foggy after a meal?  This could be a sign of leaky gut because there are food molecules entering your bloodstream that do not belong there; your body now has to work to eliminate them.  This stimulates your immune system and you feelRead More →

There is a lot of buzz today about gut health and your microbiome.  Research has shown that the bacteria in your gut contribute large amounts of genetic information to your inner ecosystem.  This means that they have a great deal of influence on how well the systems in your body function.  When the bacteria in the gut are out of balance, living in the wrong location, or there are too many of one type, or not enough of another, your health can suffer. Improving your gut health is not as simple as eating a cup of yogurt now and then.  There are thousands of speciesRead More →

No one likes to be sick.  We all wish for a life blessed with good health, energy, and prosperity.  But what if life throws us a curve ball and we get some news that we never wanted to hear?  Hearing your name and cancer together will evoke fear in just about anyone.  Making treatment choices in a state of fear can lead you down paths that may not be in your best interest long-term. What if you could view your diagnosis as an opportunity for transformation?  Imagine your treatment as a time of restoration to health better than you experienced prior to the diagnosis.  YouRead More →

What message are you sending to your body? Your thoughts have a direct effect on the health of your body.  Your body actually believes what you think and say to it.  Knowing this, what do you want your body to hear? Do you envision your body as healthy and strong, or as weak and sick?  Your body will respond to positive affirmations as well as negative ones.  If you want to heal an illness, imagine your life in a healed state, not a sick one; if you want to lose weight, imagine yourself lean and fit.  Once you begin to say your affirmations, watch forRead More →

Trees bend in the wind, flowers shrug off a late spring snow, the creek bends with the contours of the land.  Nature adapts to a variety of circumstances, and the outcome is a perfectly harmonious blending of energies that grows stronger with time. What is this aspect of nature that allows this flexibility? Resilience is the word that comes to mind for me.  What is resilience? According to Psychology Today, resilience is ‘that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever’ I suspect that, as humans, it is a lack of resilience that may beRead More →
