 IN THE NEWS: Breast cancer patients’ lives ‘being ruined by side effects of chemo’ that leaves them exhausted Debilitating treatment ‘stops women going to shops or climbing stairs’, Study finds 20% of over 65s unable to live independently after a year, Doctors say women should be given more help to cope with side effects. Dr Cynthia Owusu, an assistant professor at the University Hospitals, in Cleveland, Ohio, and her team undertook a detailed study of 184 women over 65 who had been diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. After 12 months of treatment – mainly chemotherapy – a fifth were unable to carry out basic daily tasks. These included walking across a room, light housework, shopping, kneeling or standing long enough to have a shower. Dr Owusu said it was largely due to ‘chemotherapy toxicity’ which essentially means the treatment is poisoning the body. Seven women died within the year, due to the side effects of the treatment or as a result of another illness other than breast cancer. In rare cases chemotherapy can be fatal and it causes damage to the heart, lungs, kidneys and liver. ‘Beyond treating the cancer itself, the whole person has to be considered, including other health concerns and also the emotional impact of diagnosis and treatment. Note: Google black salve and breast-cancer there are alternatives.

WELLNESS: The secret to surviving a heart attack? Eating plenty of salmon, pecans and vegetable oils ‘lowers chances of dying’ Oily fish like mackerel, salmon and sardines have high levels of omega-3, Some nuts, seeds and oils contain high levels of plant-based equivalent, Study looked at research based on more than 45,000 patients globally. These foods reduce inflammation in the body which is the latest scientific understanding for heart disease. The cholesterol theory for heart disease has never once been proven through scientific studies in the past 50 years. Unfortunately sometimes politics and fraud produce practices that takes years to expose and change. If you’re taking drugs for cholesterol your shortening your life span. Change your diet and lifestyle and you can substantially reduce your likelihood of having a heart attack. Note: Ask for list of anti-inflammatory foods.

CHIROPRACTIC: INCREASING COMMUNICATION WITHIN THE BODY Health is when your cells and organs are functioning properly in relationship with the rest of the body. How does the liver know what the stomach needs? It doesn’t, it’s the nervous system that not only initiates function but coordinates function throughout the body. If your nervous system is under too much stress organs and glands start to malfunction. Chiropractic adjustments reestablish and tune the proper communication and thus coordination to body function. Chiropractic patients have an immune system that functions substantially more efficient than the average person on the street. Studies show that regular chiropractic care improves the repair of DNA. Tell a friend about chiropractic they will be glad you did.

FUNNY BONE: Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired. Jules Renard @@ I’ve always thought my neighbors were quite nice people. But then they put a password on their Wi-Fi. @@ Nature abhors a vacuum, but not as much as a cat does.@@ They say money doesn’t bring you happiness. Still, it is better to verify things for yourself.@@ I can’t believe I forgot to go to the gym today. That’s 7 years in a row now.
