The new Coronavirus (dubbed “COVID-19” or “nCoV-2019”) is likely the hottest topic of discussion around the world today.

CANCER – IT’S NOT FOR ME!

By |October 2nd, 2019|Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Environmental Health|


CANCER is on target to be the number one killer of Americans in 2020.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) predicts that, by 2020, cancer will become the Leading cause of death in the United States.

That information sounds quite ominous. However, this is not all bad news.


Heart Disease has been the number one killer for decades, but the U.S. has made solid improvement reducing deaths from heart disease. That is actually the main reason that death by cancer is now beginning to overtake death by heart disease. There has been a significant decrease in death from […]

A New Look at Cancer Prevention, #3: Eating from the 4 Food Kingdoms

By |November 29th, 2018|Cancer, Food as Medicine|

In this third series on cancer prevention , we will focus on Eating from the Four Kingdoms.

A CRITICAL FACTOR:  MANAGING STRESS

It does not mean that you will not […]

Article #1 in a 3-part series

Read Article #2      A Critical Factor:  Managing Stress!

 

A recent article by the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida states that Cancer has surpassed heart disease as the leading killer in America.  This is quite plausible when you see the CDC’s numbers for 2016:  Cardiovascular disease took 635,260 lives and cancer accounted for 598,038 lives.  Among the myriad of theories and methods for using natural and holistic medicine to […]

CBD for You and Me!

By |May 1st, 2018|Aging Gracefully, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Drugs, Pain, Uncategorized|

CBD oil is a Natural Medicine found in the Cannabis plant.  No one can get “high” on it.  But it is an effective medicine for multiple issues as well as for longevity.  CBD regenerates the human body and brain to be more youthful.  It changes lives, and the cities and states who embrace it may experience significant growth and a revitalized economy.  But, as the popularity of the Cannabis plant has grown over the past decade, the pharmaceutical industry has been busy behind the scenes.  There are currently serious legal obstacles posed by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration).
