IN THE NEWS: One Superbug Meets Another: Ants Could Be the Key to Battling Antibiotic Resistance Antibiotic resistance is a huge crisis currently threatening the whole world. In fact, it’s such a big deal that it’s even being discussed by the UN General AssemblyAccording to estimates, more than 700,000 people die of drug-resistant infections each year across the globe, and bad bacteria continue to evolve against the treatments that do work. To help alleviate that problem, researchers are looking for answers in the unlikeliest of places: the backs of ants. Scientists have found ants that cultivate bacteria they can use against invading fungi and microbes, and it could be a potential new source for antibiotics. Researchers have narrowed down the search for these special ants to species that cultivate fungi as their food source, such as leaf-cutter ants, which are found in North and South America.

WELLNESS: Can Apple Cider Vinegar Prevent Urinary Tract Infections? ACV has been used in traditional medicine for generations as a topical acne treatment; digestive issues like acid-reflux or constipation thanks to the malic acid content; insomnia; joint paintweight loss; and, according to 2007 study published in Diabetes Care, it could even help treat diabetes by lowering glucose levels. Holistic nutritionist, Lee Holmes, also cites other benefits to drinking the organic, unfiltered kind: “Studies have shown it can help to reduce appetite, lower bad cholesterol, aid digestion and even tone and clarify the skin,” she added. When it comes to avoiding UTIs and supporting general health, the reason ACV’s so effective is due to its ability to balance pH levels in your body, creating an alkalized state. It’s also a trifecta of antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral benefits. “It can be used as a natural antibiotic,” explained Holmes, adding that useful minerals lurking in sediment at the bottom of the bottle can curb infection. “Drinking apple cider vinegar can prevent the bacteria that cause UTIs from multiplying or growing,” she said.

CHIROPRACTIC: NUMBNESS IN THE ARM AND HAND if you or someone you know suffers from numbness in the arm or hand then you’re most likely dealing with the neck problem. Sometimes you might not have any symptoms in your neck yet the tiny bones in your neck could be pressing on the nerves that go down to your fingertips. Besides nerve pressure an unresolved whiplash can cause compression on the discs in the neck and as they break down put pressure on the nerves to the fingers. Realignment of the neck can resolve this condition along with shoulder problems, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome as well as numbness or swelling in the hand. It’s important to understand you can have nerve pressure without pain. If you or someone you know suffers from this condition have them call 918-663-1111.

FUNNY BONE:   I almost had a psychic girlfriend, ….. But she left me before we met.@@ Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don’t have film.@@ Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract’s sick-leave provisions.  One morning at the bargaining table, the company’s chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, “This man,” he announced, “called in sick yesterday!” There, on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. A union negotiator broke the silence in the room. “Wow,” he said. “Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn’t been sick!”

IN THE NEWS: FDA Is Pharma’s Lapdog, Not a Watchdog The House Energy and Commerce Committee launched an investigation into the FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations (OCI), particularly their handling of food, drug and medical device cases. A Reuters investigation previously found that more than half of all OCI cases are closed with no action taken. Agents at OCI have said they were told to avoid opening cases relating to other federal agencies. OCI agents have also questioned the need to pursue mislabeled injectable drugs, like Botox, from other countries, seemingly protecting high drug prices in the U.S. even though such drugs pose little public health risk. NOTE: Most people mistakenly think the FDA is a public safety government organization but I can tell you from personal experience that their corrupt to the core. They appear to be much more inclined to remove supplements with questionable risk picture as opposed to drugs that kill over 2000 people a week.

WELLNESS: Why the Sun Is Necessary for Optimal Health Up until the 1950s sunlight was widely used to treat so-called diseases of darkness: tuberculosis and rickets. Sunlight induces coordinated endocrine adaptation effects. It affects sympathetic and parasympathetic activity, and is a major circadian and seasonal stimulus for the body clock … Our system, via the eyes and via the skin, detects the colors of the light in the environment in order to adapt the hormonal system to the specific needs of the time and place. It’s not the sun that causes skin cancer it’s the effect of sick skin not able to respond to the sun properly. Dehydration, system toxicity, fatty acids and oil soluble vitamin deficiencies are just some of the reasons for skin cancer, it’s not the sun’s fault. Vitamin D levels are dependent on proper sun exposure.

IN THE NEWS:  Fails Up to 90 Percent of the Time, yet Nearly Every Doctor Urges You to Get It Mounting research suggests getting an annual flu shot may be ill advised for long-term health, and doesn’t actually work in the first place. An analysis of influenza vaccine effectiveness reveals that, between 2005 and 2015, the flu vaccine was less than 50 percent effective more than half of the time. Recent studies show that, with each successive annual flu vaccination, the protection afforded by the vaccine appears to diminish. It may also increase your risk of contracting more serious influenza infections.

WELLNESS: New Safety Regulations for Cosmetics – Better Regulated by States Congress has proposed a law, the Personal Care Products Safety Act, that would give the FDA authority to test whether chemicals added to personal care products are being used at safe levels. The new regulations would require companies to report adverse reactions to their products to the FDA, but those adverse reactions won’t be made publicly available. The other glaring issue is that The Personal Care Products Safety Act would preempt state regulations. Note: maybe you should go by the rule if you would not eat it don’t put it on your skin. Have you heard of transdermal patches? What you put on your skin will be in your bloodstream.

WELLNESS: Our Bodies Have So Many More Cancer-Causing Chemicals Than We Thought An estimated 1.7 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2016. While some of this is rooted in sheer genetics, many of these cases may be sparked by substances in the air, soil, food, and materials around us. A new report released today by the Environmental Working Group shows just how many of these substances end up inside of us. Pulling data from places like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, EWG detected up to 420 possible carcinogens—the name for cancer-causing agents—in people’s bodies. NOTE: Is there cancer in your family? Even if the answer to that is no you should still drink clean water, try to eat clean food (reduce junk food and increase fresh fruits and vegetables and even consider organic), clean air machines in your home can reduce pollution.

Healing Cancer From The Inside Out – Preview

I located a copy of the DVD and here are some of the numbers mentioned for melanoma patients.

It should be noted that these numbers are from 1995 when there was no successful treatments. 

 ——————————————————————
Stage II Malignant Melanoma
39% alive after 5 years (typical diet and conventional treatments)
82% alive after 5 years (plant based diet with no conventional treatments)
—————————————————————————–
Stage IV Malignant Melanoma
6% alive after 4 years (Conventional treatment and typical diet)
39% alive after 4 years (adopted a 100% plant based diet)
——————————————————————————-
Stage I & II Malignant Melanoma
That adapted a 100% plant based diet had a 100% survival rate after 5 years
——————————————————————————–
Stage III Malignant Melanoma
That adapted a plant based diet had a 71% survival rate after 5 years.
  • Nutrition and melanoma prevention.

Abstract

Melanoma has continued to rise in incidence despite public efforts to promote sun protection behaviors. Because sunscreen use does not completely prevent skin cancer induced by ultraviolet radiation, additional chemopreventive methods for protecting against and reversing the effects of ultraviolet photodamage need evaluation. Recent years have brought increased interest in dietary factors, such as natural botanicals and vitamins, for the prevention of melanoma. This contribution provides a narrative review of the relevant, nutrition-related literature found by searching the keywords “melanoma chemoprevention,” “nutrition and melanoma,” “dietary botanicals and melanoma prevention,” “green tea and melanoma,” “vitamin D and melanoma,” and “vitamin E and melanoma” in the PubMed database. Although randomized controlled trials of humans are lacking, basic science and epidemiologic studies show promising benefits of many natural products in chemoprevention for melanoma. Future studies, hopefully, will yield concrete answers and clarify the role of commonly available dietary nutrients in melanoma chemoprevention.

Antioxidants, such as retinol, are important for a healthy immune system. Studies have found that higher intake of retinol-rich foods, such as fish, milk, eggs, dark green leafy vegetables, and orange/yellow fruits and vegetables led to a 20 percent reduced risk of developing melanoma.Jun 18, 2015

Foods that help Prevent and Fight Melanoma

Many individual foods are purported to help prevent and fight cancer, with varying levels of concrete scientific evidence. Here are some of the most promising foods that have either been scientifically studied, or have garnered anecdotal evidence of their potency.

Melanoma-Fighting Food!

A nutrient called sulforaphane, contained in broccoli sprouts as well as other cabbage-family vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale has been shown in observational studies to help prevent cancer.

Melanoma and Supplements

There are a variety of vitamins and minerals that can potentially help prevent and fight cancer and melanoma. Some may also be helpful in managing side effects of a variety of cancer treatments.

  • Melatonin: Dozens of studies and a wide range of clinical evidence suggests that high doses of melatonin not only help prevent melanoma, but also may help kill melanoma tumors and prevent them from spreading. Read more about melatonin and melanoma.
  • Vitamin D (Specifically Vitamin D3): Studies and anecdotal evidence around the use of Vitamin D in fighting melanoma, and specifically the D3 form, reveal that it is a promising supplement. There are over 3,500 PubMed articles on Vitamin D3 and cancer, including over 80 clinical trials. Many studies cite the positive effect that Vitamin D3 has on killing melanoma cells, and animal studies that suggest that it may play a role in helping to prevent the spread of melanoma. Read more about Vitamin D3 and melanoma.
  • Selenium: The effect of selenium on fighting melanoma is a subject of a lot of recent studies. Many patients tend to deficient in selenium, which is an important micronutrient.1 Some studies on mice suggest that various selenium compounds may prevent the spreading of melanoma. Additionally, several studies have suggested that selenium vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale and Brussels sprouts, can help your body target melanoma.
  • Other promising supplements include
    • CoQ10
    • N-Acetyl Cysteine
    • Flax Seed Oil
    • Lycopene
    • Alpha Lipoic Acid

INNATE INTELLIGENCE

INNATE INTELLIGENCE

Dr Keefe, Keefe Clinic, Natural Health Care, Tulsa Chiropractor, Diet, Pain,

Healing comes from within. The wisdom that made your body can heal your body. Chiropractic science teaches that the body has an inborn ability to heal itself. In chiropractic we call this innate intelligence.

Dr Keefe, Natural Health care, pain, Tulsa chiropractor,

When you cut your finger in most cases all you need to do is clean the cut and the body will do the rest. When you break a bone if it is not severely dislocated the body can pull the bone back together and make it stronger than it was before the break. As a chiropractic physician I rely on your bodies inborn intelligence to produce the results from care. My job is to remove the interference and let innate intelligence to the rest. Yes we have to give innate the proper building blocks through proper diet and nutrition plus we need to stop overloading the body with toxic chemicals and depleted nutrients like refined carbohydrates or junk food.

Dr. Keefe, Keefe Clinic. Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.

Exercise, oxygen, clean water, stress reduction and proper rest are all components necessary for good health. Drugs can not give you healthy tissue cells, vitamins can not give you healthy tissue cells without innate intelligence doing its job. That’s why the adjustment is so important. The doctor inside needs to have full access to every part of your body in order to maintain good health. Nerve pressure interferes with the innate intelligence’s ability to restore health. Who do you know who would benefit from chiropractic care?

Chiropractic releases health from within, not from a pill.
