Hippocrates - the father of medicine - said, "Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food." Medicines are a subset of foods, according to Hippocrates. I like that. What are medicines today? What are foods?
There is a difference between someone who is unhealthy and someone who is sick. Part of that difference is the viewpoint, from which we look. When we look from a medical viewpoint - we tend to find illness. When we look from a healthicine view point - we are more able to see and understand healthiness and unhealthiness.
Medicine is defined, by Wikipedia, as 'the science and art of healing'.
The body heals.
Failing to question the mutation theory of cancer is the underlying scientific reason the War on Cancer is not being won.
This quick overview of the science backs up the assertion that every cancer patient and every oncologist should put medical marijuana on their treatment maps.
An important scientific review identifies 25 of the top foods and herbs which kill the cancer stem cells at the root cause of cancer malignancy.
When it comes to cancer treatment, chemotherapy does more harm than good. There are other, non-toxic approaches that are worth exploring.
A disturbing trend has taken root in America. Mandating chemotherapy in children is equivalent to requiring parents to let others poison their children with chemicals that are themselves classified as carcinogenic. If a parent has not the authority to decide how or what their own child is treated, is the State or are medical institutions essentially laying claim to owning that child's body?
With chemotherapy resistant cancers on the rise, and conventional drug treatments often doing more harm than good, research on omega 3 fatty acids reversing multidrug resistance in colon cancer cells holds all the more promise.
Newly published research from the journal cancer indicates that conventional radiation-based cancer treatments may actually be driving the cancer into greater malignancy. Irradiated breast cancer cells were found to be 30 times more capable of forming new tumors than nonirradiated breast cancer cells.
Over a quarter of a century ago a study was performed on the seeds of the Soursop fruit, also known as graviola, which at that time demonstrated such amazing cancer-fighting potential, that those exposed to it within the conventional medical community looked upon it with complete incredulity.
Should we be looking for disease in people who don't have any symptoms? A large new study indicates the answer is NO.
This highly pungent Japanese condiment contains compounds that strike to the very core of pancreatic cancer malignancy.
A 17-year old is being forced to receive chemotherapy that is guaranteed to cause her premature death. Will you stand up to save her?
The exiting healthcare system is based on treatments, even though 80% of illness is preventable. That means simply that individuals and their doctors are doing precious little to prevent disease, even though they could.
Cannabis contains a compound that may kill brain cancers that chemotherapy and radiation can't touch, so why isn't it being used today?
The benefits of grape seed extract in cancer are well documented, but modern medicine won't do anything with it until the mechanism of action has been found, so that it can be isolated, purified, made poisonous and owned by a single company for enormous profits
Several recent international studies have illustrated that seaweeds and their extracts may have the capability of inhibiting and even treating cancer. Seaweed therapy may even outperform chemotherapy
Considering that the conventional treatment of advanced stage pancreatic cancer can result in as little as a 1% 5-year survival rate, new preclinical research on a liposomal turmeric extract that inhibits pancreatic tumor growth by 42% is all the more promising.
A traditional food plant that has been used for thousands of years to improve health and well-being, is finally being validated by science. The results? It may be far superior to a chemotherapy agent with deadly side effects and dubious efficacy.
About one hundred times less toxic than chemotherapy, turmeric extract (curcumin) was found more effective at killing colorectal cancer stem cells from patients than a popular combination of conventional drugs.
Could bacteria and related microbes, widely believed to be a primary cause of disease, explain how we are capable of surviving through the self-created chemical nightmare of industrialized society?
Millions of asymptomatic women undergo breast screening annually because their doctors tell them to do so. Not only are these women's presumably healthy breasts being exposed to highly carcinogenic x-rays, but thousands have received a diagnosis of 'breast cancer' for entirely benign lesions that when left untreated would have caused no harm to them whatsoever.
A new study finds vitamin D -- the 'sunlight vitamin' -- strikes to the very heart of breast cancer malignancy.
A turmeric study published in Cancer Letters is paving the way for a revolution in the way that we both understand and treat cancer.
