Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?

cancer cell growthThere are articles and evidence that show good research that we may be able to…

Dr. William Li Cancer Researcher: presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor.

The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game.

When angiogenesis is out of balance, a myriad of diseases result. For example, insufficient angiogenesis — not enough blood vessels — leads to wounds that don’t heal, heart attacks, legs without circulation, death from stroke, nerve damage.

On the other end, excessive angiogenesistoo many blood vessels — drives disease, and we see this in cancer, blindness, arthritis, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease. In total, there are more than 70 major diseases affecting more than a billion people worldwide, that all look on the surface to be different from one another, but all actually share abnormal angiogenesis as their common denominator. And this realization is allowing us to re-conceptualize the way that we actually approach these diseases, by controlling angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis is a tipping point between a harmless cancer and a harmful one.
Mother Nature has laced a large number of foods and beverages and herbs with naturally-occurring inhibitors of angiogenesis.
parsley, garlic, grapes, berries & tomatoes

Dr Mercola – Besides calciferous veggies, another standout plant for cancer-prevention is flax seed & Vitamin D.

Avoid Sugar, processed foods, trans-fats

Both Dr’s state Exercise, stress management, Sleep and Weight management are very important in decreasing your risk of cancer.

Wild Orange to Treat Infection?

Wild OrangeI was fascinated to find this Pubmed study – they tested orange oil to treat burn patients that had contracted MRSA. The conclusion in the study was that with the use of orange oil application with each application there  was a decrease in bacteria present. After just 3 applications in some cases the MRSA virus was gone!

Coriander

CorianderCoriandrum sativum
Popular across many cultures for various uses, coriander essential oil is extracted from the seed of the coriander plant. Coriander’s healthful therapeutic benefits, which can be attributed to its extremely high linalool content, range from digestive support to maintaining an already healthy insulin response.

Cold & Flu

MaryOn a personal note…

Myself and my daughter have had a cold with flu symptoms recently, one thing we noticed,  taking herbs and using essential oils did not seem to interfere with the course of the flu, we still ran a fever day 2 or 3 and over the course of 1 night that fever broke and we began to feel better. With herbs and essential oils we were able to rebuild our energy and immune system making for a minimal amount of sick time.

With over-the-counter things we might have taken, they lower the temperature so your body does not run the course of the flu naturally thus possibly increasing the length of illness.

Just a personal observation not sure how much science there is behind it. I welcome input, drop us an email or give personal input on facebook.
