Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them.
RECAPPING THE SERIES ON; FAITH AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FOR
OCT 3rd TO OCT 8th. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Today, I woke up to thinking of five ways that FAITH is really good for your HEALTH.
Can you think of any yourselves!
I’m going to start with; faith encourages healthy behavior.
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, don’t chew, and don’t go with people who do.
The effect of behavioral change due to religion literally reduces your chances of dying.
Your faith community may not encourage you to eat organic, non-GMO, plant-based, local and slow foods, but it probably still exercises some healthy influence on the habits you form and the activities you undertake.
Another relate is, faith reduces stress.
Stress has a direct negative effect on your immune system, reducing the ability of cells to attack disease inside the body.
Studies have shown that religion reduces stress in a number of ways.
Prayer, in particular, can reduce high blood pressure that is due to stress.
The anxieties and stresses of modern life tend to encourage the body’s fight or flight response.
Prayer, worship and other spiritual activities can balance out this stress response by enhancing the body’s relaxation response.
Tomorrow, Dan and I will continue with other ways that FAITH is really good for your HEALTH.
ITS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
Written by me on Saturday, April 11, 2015
IT’S NOT THE CANCER THAT IS EATING INSIDE ME ~ BUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IS BEING DONE
I was awakened from a restless sleep, torn from watching a documentary that was advised to be watched by a friend.
It was about the history of cancer and I was amazed to see what was being done back in the nineteenth century.
I was even more surprised to see and hear that not much difference has been done since then.
During the late 1800’s women that had breast cancer had surgery to remove the breast, all layers; to prevent the cancer from coming back.
However, the fix was not enough.
In most cases the cancer came back in another organ and to fix that, they removed that organ which caused it to arrive in another.
This is not much different to what is happening today!
Chemo and radiation started in the early nineteen hundred, which provided results which were pretty much the same.
The chemo ~a poison drug was experimented on people with the successful rate that the drug would later form another type of cancer or other side effects.
Radiation was done with the same results.
However, they are doing the same type of procedures today!
As I grew up, I had experienced the same results with my family members.
At an early age I watched my father and his siblings all go through chemo and radiation and saw the same results and death.
This was in the 1970’s when President Nixon passed a bill to raise funds for the cure of cancer.
In memory of my dad, let’s make a difference!
When I graduated from high school, my passion was to help and change the way cancer was feeding on the public.
I went into the medical field and went along with the crowd until I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my early 50’s.
LET’S CHANGE THE THINKING OF CANCER ~MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Everything came back to me and my life changed with the knowledge and education what is out there for treatment.
I explored the world for options and found results without long term side effects.
It’s amazing what you can find out there if you look hard enough.
With all the funding that has been going on for many years, they just keep coming up with poisons to fight this illness.
I am appalled that not enough research is going toward the type of treatments that Mexico and Germany have been doing for years.
There is a way to fight cancer without surgery, chemo, and radiation that do show good results.
We as people need to realize that the type of procedures is being used now have a very low rate of cure and look outside the box and educate ourselves.
It’s been known that heat and oxygen kill cancer and there are other ways rather than the norm that burns and poisons and causes other side effects.
I should know for I had these other methods and have had minor side effects ~ a fever.
In researching further, a fever is not a bad side effect.
This is a way that your body is telling you that there is something wrong and it wants to escape out.
So often, we are given a pill to break the fever when in many cases we should let it take its course.
Immune therapy (T Cells), hyperthermia and ozone treatments are much more affective without side effects.
The insurance companies will not pay for this for they say it is experimental; but isn’t chemo and radiation?
It has been a trial since the early nineteen hundred and still with the same results.
Why not put the money for a cancer cure into what I did and have insurance companies pay for it?
Wait, maybe they do not want to find a cure or a better type of treatment, because more people will live.
Just look at the statistics and think about it; every 7 minutes a woman is diagnosed with gynecological cancer, 1 million a year in the U.S.
The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in women in the United States for 2015 are; about 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer, about 62,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the breast will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer), about 40,290 deaths from breast cancer.
Cancer of the breast is the most common among women in the United States, other than skin cancer.
It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.
Annual report, The American Cancer Society; this annual report provides the estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2015, as well as current cancer incidence, mortality, and survival statistics and information on cancer symptoms, risk factors, early detection, and treatment.
In 2015, THERE WILL BE AN ESTIMATED 1,658,370 NEW CANCER CASES DIAGNOSED and 589,430 cancer DEATHS in the US.
Please note: The projected numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2015 should not be compared with previous years to track cancer trends because they are model-based and vary from year to year for reasons other than changes in cancer occurrence.
Age-standardized incidence and death rates should be used to measure cancer trends.
Cancer Research Funding; key points -
• The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Health and Human Services, is the Nation’s principal agency for cancer research and coordinates the National Cancer Program.
• As a federal agency, NCI receives its funds from Congress.
• Although NCI’s budget has been relatively flat in recent years, averaging approximately $4.9 billion per year, funding for specific cancer types and research categories may fluctuate for a number of reasons.
• Other federal agencies, state, and local governments, voluntary organizations, private institutions, and industry spend substantial amounts of money on cancer-related research.
Source: National Cancer Institute: website. As I understand it science has mapped the genome for cancer.
The problem is that the cancer cells mutate making many drug treatment programs ineffective.
Research is very expensive and as drugs become ineffective continuing research must be performed to combat the evolution of the disease driving up costs for treatment.
In a great many cases patient’s lives are extended by drugs used to fight their disease until their cancer mutates creating another type of cancer cell requiring another type of drug.
So, you see why I am tossing and turning and can’t get to sleep.
The cancer is gone, but the knowledge that I have learned is eating inside me and I am heartbroken to hear and see the percentage of people dying of this illness when it doesn’t have to be that way.
The best part of the research money should go into prevention of cancer.
I have learned so much regarding this subject and have changed my lifestyle, which will prevent the cancer that I had to come back.
You see we are treating this disease with symptoms and not the core of how we got it.
There is a reason, we need to treat each person individually and treat the source and not the symptom.
How many are you out there are left-handers?
I raise my left hand! When I was growing up, I learned everything right-handed; which made everything I did the wrong way.
It’s time to share some words from THE LEFT-HANDER’S HANDBOOK.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
Here’s a famous test of creativity.
Your noncreative right-handed brain sees only a hodgepodge of disconnected shapes, but
Your left-handed brain can go beyond logic and find the connecting concept that makes sense of the shapes.
If you can’t see beyond the shape, it’s because your right-handed brain is trying to solve the problem logically and won’t let your left-handed brain have a go.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
When you believe, when you put in the hours, when you do your best work, when you keep going, eventually you’ll find that luck has very little to do with your success.
It starts with a dream, but a dream has to become your life in order for your life to become that dream fully realized.
You can totally do it.
Start where you are and commit to getting to where you want to be.

MY JOURNEY OF COMPLETION (Body, Heart and Soul) – Enjoy Life While Managing Cancer
RECAPPING THE SERIES ON; FAITH AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE FOR OCT 3rd TO OCT 8th. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Your faith can move mountains and your doubt can create them.
Life is full of happiness and tears; be strong and have faith.
Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.
Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.
If one has faith, one has everything.
When fear knocks, let faith answer the door.
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Dan and I grabbed an opportunity nine years ago, when we took on the adventure and moved to Mexico. Back then, we didn’t know what to expect, except that both of us were alive and ready for a change. We had been going to Tijuana for cancer treatments and knew somewhat what we were heading into. We ended up living in the center of the country however; better for travel purposes and it was nothing like what we had thought about. To this date, we are back in the states living in Virginia and what we took from Mexico was friendships, culture and understanding of their ways of life.
Through thousands of pictures that I took, Dan and I are showing how safe Mexico is. There is a saying ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’; this is so true! A picture tells a story just as well as, if not better than, a lot of written words.
20 PICTURES - ENJOY THE SLIDE SHOW
"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."
So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story.
Today will continue the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown. Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy. A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 8; HANDLING FRAZZLED EMOTIONS.
As long as the eyes leak, the head won’t swell.
Screwed up people are messed up.
Something is wrong with their wiring.
You aren’t going to change a malfunctioning unit just because you want them to change, regardless of how out of control you become.
So, what do you do?
Is your choice to live with the situation and stuff the emotions?
Stuffing is bad for the psyche.
Stuffed emotions simmer; they don’t go away.
Continue Monday on what do you do?
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. In the coming week, Dan and I will be blogging the benefits of TURMERIC. It’s amazing what and how turmeric can help keep your body healthy?
Do you get headaches!
There maybe a connection between turmeric and headaches.
Since its relative ginger is a well-known natural headache remedy, it's no surprise that turmeric gets recommended as a headache treatment, too.
Especially if you get migraines.
There is one study suggests it could be part of a new approach.
So, next time you get a headache, try turmeric.
