If Cancer Is Not The Problem, What Is It Actually Telling Us?

Published

on

Would you be angry with me if I told you that cancer can be the greatest thing to ever happen to someone? At first that may sound really insensitive, but what if cancer is not the problem, but rather the result of a problem? What if cancer is just the body’s way of warning us that urgent changes need to be made to our diet and lifestyle?

When we start to view cancer as an alarm bell, raising money to find a ‘cure’ becomes less appealing because it doesn’t make sense to pour billions of dollars into research just to find a way to turn off our internal alarm. It’s like trying to stop a leaky hose without first turning off the mains. Perhaps this is why there are so many reoccurrences of cancer after treatment.

Like millions of people out there, my mother was raised to fear cancer. She was indoctrinated into a system that made her panic at the mere mention of the word.

It was unsettling to watch the backbone of our family crumble in my living room. Witnessing my mother shake and cry and repeat the words, “Get it out! I want it out! Get out it!” really changed me.

The surgeries were brutal and it took a lot for me to get over the bitterness and contempt I had for the medical industry. Some people call my mother a hero but I see her as a victim of a flawed system. You may call her brave, but she felt she had no other choice. It angers me that after billions of dollars in research and over 100 years of study, the best the medical industry had for my mother was to chop off her breasts.

Up until that time I hadn’t looked into where donations for cancer research actually go. Is it wrong of me to expect more from an industry that takes free money? We have the right to feel disappointed when the intention behind cancer research is to come up with a pharmaceutical cure that they intend to sell back to the people. Haven’t we paid and suffered enough?

Now what if I told you that I’ve come up with something natural and cost effective that is continually overlooked by cancer researchers? Why won’t they study my discovery? Is it because SuperHeal is not profitable?

I’m not claiming it to be a cure by any means but SuperHeal has the potential to revolutionize how we address certain types of lumps and skin problems, and also act as a foundation to create new research projects.

It should have come as no surprise that when mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2012, she completely shut down. We pleaded with her not to have a double mastectomy and to consider other options because her case was very minor, but nothing was registering — she was physically present but her spirit had tuned out.

The Birth Of Superheal

Just months after mum’s ordeal, I paid $850 to have five fatty cysts removed from my Maltese dog Mishka’s body. Two weeks later, another large cyst appeared on her tail. I didn’t want to put Mishka through the pain of surgery again so I searched for alternatives.

I read about a study carried out at UCLA where they reported to have shrunk tumours by applying coconut oil and turmeric to mice. Riding on a hunch, I added one more food ingredient to make the mixture more effective and this is how SuperHeal was born. Seeing what my mother and my dog had gone through, I decided that products like these should be accessible to everyone, so even though we sell ready made SuperHeal for convenience, the recipe is and always will be available for free.

To share Mishka’s incredible results we launched the first Dog vs Lump video in October 2012.

It didn’t take long for the testimonials to start flooding in…

Anecdotal evidence relating to dogs, cats, horses, mice, rats and people, suggests that SuperHeal may have beneficial effects when applied to sebaceous cysts, lipomas, tumours, melanomas, bacterial and fungal infections, polyps (growth inhibition), solar keratosis, skin tags, haematomas, some warts and some skin growths.

SuperHeal’s ingredients are well documented as having strong antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties and may also assist in wound healing.

Subsequently we have released another three Dog vs Lump videos to share how people have saved their dogs and themselves the trauma and costs of surgery.

Disclaimer:

Prevention is better than cure, and diet is everything. Please consult your doctor or veterinarian before using SuperHeal. We make no claims that SuperHeal will treat or cure you or your animals in any way, shape, or form. We were pleased with our results and we sincerely hope you will be too.

The Hidden Dangers Of Lumps

My mother’s diagnosis was a turning point in my life. I’d already started my journey into natural health and built a business developing organic food products for people and dogs but it wasn’t until her health was on the line that I found a strong passion for cancer research.

If there is one thing to take away from this article it’s this: whether you are contemplating using SuperHeal or any other method or treatment, getting rid of the lumps can be the easy part. Please do not celebrate early!

Cannabis oil is no more a cure than chemotherapy, water fasting, or juicing. SuperHeal may in some cases buy you or an animal time, and it may help cosmetically, but again, it is not a cure and it does not address the underlying problems that caused the lumps in the first place. All of these approaches may help to extend life or reverse cancer, but the true cure will be found in long-term diet and lifestyle changes and never in pharmaceutical drugs.

I hope that given all the mounting evidence against a number of lumps and skin problems, one day the cancer industry will stop ignoring us and study SuperHeal.

The video below features some of my favourite tips that I take into account every day to help my dogs live long and healthy lives. The best part is, the same tips apply to human health.

12 Life Changing Tips To Help Prevent Disease

Remember when I said that cancer can be the greatest thing to happen to someone? My mother’s diagnosis was a wake up call. She embraced a diet and lifestyle change – she eats clean, stresses less, goes for regular walks and takes in the fresh sea air. As for Mishka… she was born in mid 2001 and is still going strong because her situation motivated me to make more changes to her diet. Don’t fear cancer. Don’t hate the tumour, hate the cause. Be proactive. Take action.

Food IS medicine, and don’t let anyone tell you differently!

Ending The Debate About The Ketogenic Diet – 9 Studies You Must Be Aware Of

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Ketogenic diet is a popular fad diet that promotes quick weight loss and symptom management for bodies that are dealing with poor lymph, kidney and digestion health.

  • Reflect On:

    Based on the studies that are emerging, is our desire for quick weight loss more important than living a long and healthy life? Are we learning about these diets primarily through those with strong ties to upholding these diets?

The ketogenic diet has popped up as a popular approach to weight loss in the last few years. Is it successful at that? Sure, it is. I’ve experimented with the diet myself years ago when I was looking to lose some belly fat. I was entering into ketosis in a different way than most, as I was not eating any animal products, but it does in fact work.

But like any animal product based diet, what are the consequences of eating so much food that does not truly jive with our human bodies? Not only that, is fast weight loss more important than keeping our morality rate down?

In the last few years, we’ve reported a lot on the Keto diet and the various ways it can be done. We have explored the studies, the results and in some ways, we supported it. But lately, I have been thinking about how supporting this could actually be encouraging people to jump into these diets, including the paleo diet, when in reality these diets increase mortality rates and are not healthy for the human body.

It became a thought in the back of my mind, I have always strived to put the best information out that I can through this platform to promote good health. And so we must look at that, even if that means upsetting some people who currently are on paleo or keto and are seeing some good weight loss or symptom management. The truth is, like the many people I’ve seen crash on these diets after a few years, I want people to know the truth of what’s going on out there. And how we can get beyond diets that symptom manage, and instead get onto diets that truly heal.

Anytime we have fad diets, which paleo and keto are, we see products and bias pop up all over the place to support the continuation of these trends. It becomes less about health and more about upholding an identity or a business.

So as I recently looked into what experts are saying about these diets, I came upon two important videos I think everyone should check out. Both have been embedded below. Remember, it’s not that I care what you choose in your own life, or that I feel there is a right or wrong, it’s that I believe we should be informed and I wish to use this platform to promote as best a message as I can.

Boy or Girl – Baby Gender Selection Issues

Published

on

Some parents have the possibility to opt for gender selection; however, being able to decide whether to have a baby boy or girl is a controversial issue.

Many couples expecting a baby do not think it’s a big issue whether they have a boy or a girl; however there are several medical, social, and personal reasons that could influence parents to recur to some form of gender selection.

Like many other controversial practices, the legality of gender selection, also known as sex selection, varies from country to country.

The Legality of Baby Gender Selection

The United States has perhaps some of the most relaxed laws regarding baby gender selection in the world. Most European countries and Australia, on the other hand, have bans on sex selection and only allow it for medical reasons. For example, if a parent is a carrier of a mutation or gene with more chances of manifesting itself in a certain gender, baby gender selection is valid. However, if parents simply wish to balance the ratio of boys and girls in their family, they are not allowed to recur to sex selection.

This has generated a form of medical tourism in which couples from countries where gender selection is illegal, like the UK, travel to the US in order to be able to choose whether to have a baby boy or girl.

On the other hand, sex selection is illegal in the two most populated countries on Earth, China and India. In these countries, baby gender selection has been performed clandestinely for many years and for reasons other than family balancing or avoiding genetic diseases. In these societies, having a baby boy is preferred mainly for cultural and economic reasons. Parents believe that boys have better chances of earning income and eventually support them when they reach an old age.

Methods of Baby Gender Selection

There are two major types of gender selection methods: the first one is called sperm sorting, and involves separating X-chromosome sperm from Y-chromosome sperm by flow cytometry, a purification technique in which chromosomes are suspended in a stream of sperm and identified by an electronic detector before being separated. Intra-uterine insemination or in-vitro fertilization can then be performed with the enriched sperm. The success rates for this method vary from 80% to 93%.

The other method, called pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, consists in generating several embryos through in-vitro fertilization, which are then genetically tested to determine a baby’s gender. The chosen embryos can then be implanted. This method has a success rate of almost 100%; however, it can be quite expensive, costing up to $15,000.

Issues Regarding Baby Gender Selection

While there are few objections against baby gender selection when it is performed for medical reasons, it has become a highly controversial issue when it is used for balancing the number of boys or girls in families. Some people raise the obvious ethical question of whether people who opt for gender selection are “playing God” by manipulating whether to have a baby boy or girl. Others believe that new parents will raise a baby more appropriately if he or she belongs to their preferred gender.

Gender Imbalance Caused by Baby Gender Selection

Gender selection has caused demographic concern in China and India since it has contributed to generate a gender imbalance in the populations of those countries. In some regions of China, for example, the sex ratio for newborns is 118:100, boys to girls. This phenomenon has in turn been associated with social problems such as an increase in violence and prostitution.

It seems like a logical solution for governments around the globe to legalize baby gender selection but to analyze the personal reasons why each couple intends to select a baby boy or girl. Gender selection for medical reasons should even be encouraged, since it could prevent serious genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s disease, and Haemophilia A. Balancing the gender ratio of a family should be accepted if by doing this, a healthy family environment is created. On the other hand, China and India have shown that baby gender selection as a result of a bias towards a particular gender can not only create a gender imbalance in the population, but contribute to social problems as well.

Organic Certification: What the USDA Organic Label Means

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Organic and natural labels mean different things, and various types of labels tells you what percentage of ingredients are actually organic. We'll explore what to look for.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you sometimes buy products thinking they are organic or fully natural based on their wording? Have you later found out that those products aren't natural or organic at all? Read labels more closely at grocery stores to be aware.

Don’t get conned by fraudulent claims of “natural” or “organic.” Learn what to look for, and why it’s important, to ensure you’re getting the quality you are paying for.

The industrial age of the 20th century brought about changing agricultural practices that have generated increasing alarm about the effects of these practices on the environment and health. The use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, irradiated and genetically altered food and fiber products has created a groundswell of rightful concern. It has led to the growing demand for non-toxic, organic products that many are willing to pay a higher price for to ensure the healthful purity of food and clothing provided for their families.

With such profit opportunities, it’s little wonder that the lucrative organic product market has suffered abuse with so-called “organic” labels being fraudulently placed on products that have not earned the right. As a result of pressure from farming and consumer groups, legislation for the standardization of organic certification was introduced in the 1980s. It has been updated to include more vigorous enforcement and control methods since, with the current standards established in 2002 by the USDA.

The Standards of USDA Organic Certification

Specific standards must be met in order to legally claim a product as USDA certified organic. Organic producers must utilize methods that conserve water, maximize soil health, and reduce air pollution. The specific standards to earn USDA organic certification include:

Free of synthetic chemicals such as insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, and additives

Free from irradiation and genetically modified organisms

Agricultural products grown on land that has been free of prohibited substances for a period of three years

Animals used for meat, eggs, milk or other animal products must be exclusively fed foods that are organically grown, may not be given antibiotics or hormones, and must have access to outdoors.

Clean and sanitized harvesting and processing equipment throughout the process from harvest to finished, packaged product

Detailed chain-of-handling records from the field through final sales

Physical separation of certified organic products from non-organic products throughout the process of production

Regular on-site inspections from USDA-approved inspectors to ensure compliance

Understanding the Certified Organic Label

Once the rigorous process of certification has been completed, organic producers may place the USDA certified organic seal on their products. Currently, there are four levels of certified organic products, with a specific definition of the percentage of organic ingredients the final products contains. They are as follows:

• 100% organic: all production methods and ingredients are USDA certified organic.

• Organic: at least 95% of the production methods and ingredients are USDA certified organic with remaining ingredients included on the National List of allowed ingredients.

• Made With Organic Ingredients: at least 70% of the ingredients are USDA certified organic with remaining ingredients included on the National List of allowed ingredients.

• No organic wording or seal: less than 70% of the ingredients are USDA certified organic and no claims may be made on the front or back of the product.

Manufacturers or producers who knowingly label a product “organic” when it does not meet the USDA standards are subject to fines up to $11,000 per violation.

Why Organic Certification is Important

When you see the official USDA organic certification seal on food, clothing, and bedding products, you can be assured that these products have met the meticulous standards required and are free of chemicals, toxins, antibiotics, and hormones. When you see the USDA certified organic label, you will understand the value of the higher priced organic products as compared to non-organically produced products.

With the current stringent organic certification requirements enforced by regular inspections from USDA accredited agents, the USDA certified organic label has great meaning and importance to the consumer. Look for the label to know that you are getting the quality you are paying for.
