Our loved ones don’t really go away. They remain in our hearts and walk beside us.
INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017
Yesterday would have been my parents 66th Anniversary. My mom had twenty years of memories and I had sixteen of them. My dad died many years ago of cancer. After over forty years and still no change on treatments and then I found out I had cancer. I guess this is why I’m so passionate about a change on how we look and act on this terrible disease and why I started this website and blog.
Dad, we thought of you yesterday like we always do. We often think of you in silence and talk about the special moments that we had with you. Your memory is all that we have which we can keep forever. God has you in his arms and we have you in our hearts.
There’s nothing that anyone can say that will ease the pain of losing someone you love. It’s also not easy to come up with the words that will best celebrate the life of that person and honor their memory. The thought that someone you love is now free from pain, sadness, and fear gives those they left behind the peace and comfort that no harm will ever come to them again.
There’s no more stress or worries, no more heartbreaks and disappointments, and no more pain and suffering. They are free, and this gives the grieving loved one’s immense relief and consolation.
The loss of a parent is something that you can learn to live with as time passes, but it’s not something that you simply get over.
The loss is something that will change who you are as a person and change your life as you know it. The pain of losing a father will never go away because you will miss them in every situation, occasion, decision, and just in simple and ordinary things that mean a lot to you.
Instead of focusing on the many reasons your life will never be the same again, and how you are going to live a life of pain and sadness because they are no longer here with you, you should think about the many reasons why they were so loved and cherished.
A JOURNEY 🏞️
Hurray it's Friday 💐a journey of thousand miles begins with a single step. 🏞️ America enjoy the view.
When loved ones go, they leave behind their legacies and a lifetime of wonderful memories. It’s a loving reminder that when they were still around, they had been loved and treasured. That’s what memories are!
The only reason people hold on to memories so tight is because memories are the only things that don't change when everything else does.
So, when Dan and I were invited to go to THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017, I was excited to see what there is outside the box other than conventional treatments. It was amazing to check out the vendors and listen to the professional speakers on how we can manage cancer without all the chemicals and radiation of conventional medicine.
I’m going to mix up two topics that are related, natural sun and vitamin D. Since it’s the weekend and the weather will soon change in different areas, go out and enjoy.
When you think of the sun, your first thought might be about the damage it can do. And too much can cause several kinds of serious health issues.
But small amounts, especially early in the day before it’s at its brightest, can be good for you in some ways. This answer is different for everyone. It depends on your skin tone, age, health history, diet, and where you live. In general, scientists think 5 to 15 minutes -- up to 30 if you’re dark-skinned -- is about right to get the most out of it without causing any health problems. You can stay out longer and get the same effect if you use organic sunscreen.
The sun’s UV rays help your body make this nutrient, which is important for your bones, blood cells, and immune system. It also helps you take in and use certain minerals, like calcium and phosphorus. While most people don’t get enough vitamin D from food, children can get rickets, which softens and weakens their bones. Multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases may be higher in people who live in northern climates. Scientists think this might be linked to lower levels of vitamin D.
Your eyes need light to help set your body’s internal clock. Early morning sunlight in particular seems to help people get to sleep at night. This may be more important as you age because your eyes are less able to take in light, and you’re more likely to have problems going to sleep.
Morning light also seems to help people keep the fat off. You need 20 to 30 minutes between 8 a.m. and noon to make a difference, but the earlier you get it, the better it seems to work. Scientists think the sun’s rays may shrink fat cells below your skin’s surface. More sunshine means you’re probably getting more exercise too, which is good for you in lots of ways, including shedding pounds.
Sunlight helps boost a chemical in your brain called serotonin, and that can give you more energy and help keep you calm, positive, and focused. Doctors sometimes treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other types of depression linked to low levels of serotonin with natural or artificial light.
Moderate amounts of sun over your lifetime, especially in your teen and young adult years, might make you less likely to have problems seeing things at a distance (nearsightedness). But too much direct sunlight can hurt your eyes.
It can lead to blurred vision and raise your chances of cataracts.
Filtered sunlight also can be used to treat a condition called jaundice that mostly affects newborns. It happens when there’s too much of the chemical bilirubin in the blood, and it makes a baby’s skin look slightly yellow. Putting the baby in sunlight behind a window (to filter out the harmful kinds of rays) may help get rid of the bilirubin. Never put a newborn in direct sunlight outside.
Scientists have known for a long time that vitamin D is important for calcium absorption and the vitamin has also been implicated in disease such as cancer and multiple sclerosis, but what we didn’t realize is how crucial vitamin D is for actually activating the immune system, which we know now.
Doctors have known that low levels of vitamin D are linked to certain kinds of cancer as well as to, diabetes and asthma, but new research also shows that the vitamin can kill human cancer cells.
Evidence suggests that vitamin D (D3) may be protective against some cancers. Clinical studies now show vitamin D deficiency to be associated with four of the most common cancers; breast, prostate, colon and skin.
It is well established that vitamin D acts as an effective regulator of cell growth and differentiation in a number of different cell types, including cancer cells. Through this action, vitamin D behaves as a protective factor, which decreases the risk of getting cancer.
Vitamin D may also go beyond cancer prevention and provide tumor therapy. Much ado has been made of pharmaceutical angiogenesis inhibitor agents that help inhibit the growth of new, undesirable blood vessels that tumors require for nutrient supply and growth. Laboratory tests have shown vitamin D to be a potent angiogenesis inhibitor.
Vitamin D also works at another stage of cancer development. Tumor cells are young, immortal cells that never grow up; mature and die off. Vitamin D derivatives have been shown to promote normal cell growth and maturation – vitamin D and the immune system.
T cells are dormant immune cells until they are activated to detect and kill bacteria and viruses. Without vitamin D in the blood, activation would not take place. People with vitamin D deficiency might be more susceptible to infection or the vitamin D supplements might boost immunity.
Studies have found that naïve T cells that had not been primed produced only a small amount of phospholipase C-1. However, following priming by exposure to the activator immune system molecules, the T cells began to produce far more phospholipase C-1. For this to occur, the T cells needed to be in the presence of vitamin D and the vitamin D receptor.
T cells produce vitamin D receptors when they are primed to respond to antigens. Vitamin D then acts via the receptor to stimulate production of phospholipase C-1.
These changes are necessary for the T cells to be activated, when T cells are exposed to foreign pathogens, they expose a vitamin D receptor that searches for vitamin D. If the cells do not receive the nutrient, the cells will not activate.
“Scientist have known for a long time that vitamin D is important for calcium absorption and the vitamin has also been implicated in diseases such as cancer and multiple sclerosis. What we didn’t realize is how crucial vitamin D is for actually activating the immune system, which we know now.” … Professor Carsten Geisler, of the Department of International Health, Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
When Dan and I had our treatments in Mexico, this is one of the IV’s that we had.
A wise man once told me that high vitamin D kills cancer. With that, we take up to ten thousand IU’s per day. I’ve been doing this for almost ten years as part of my home program. Every six months, I have lab work done and I have my vitamin D checked. How abought You?
