Macrobiotics: a major tool to heal the impossible

Sherry A Rogers, M.D., a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice, a Fellow of the American College of Allergy and Immunology and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, has been in private practice for over 26 years. She is a lecturer of yearly original scientific material, as well as advanced courses for physicians. She was the keynote speaker for the international symposium Indoor Air Quality 86 in which she described the office method for testing chemical sensitivities. She developed the Formaldehyde Spot Test and published her mold research in three volumes of the ANNALS Of ALLERGY. She has published chemical testing methods in the National Institutes of Health journal, ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH PERSPECTIVES. She has published 17 scientific articles, 10 books, and was the environmental medicine editor for INTERNAL MEDICINE WORLD REPORT. 

 

I had over 20 diagnoses for which there still to this day are no known causes and no known cures in medicine. So I figured the first place to start would be to see what folks had used who claimed they had cured their own cancers. When I read Elaine Nussbaum’s story, Recovery From Cancer, I then investigated her and many other people who had claimed the same. She is very well today 23 years after her metastatic cancer, against which medicine was totally powerless.

The next step was to see what macrobiotics could do for me. I was dependent upon eleven allergy injections a week for years for migraines, asthma, chronic sinusitis, brain fog, and eczema, triggered by many pollens, dust, molds, foods and chemicals. As well, I had colitis, arthritis, unwarranted depression, exhaustion, and a recent onset of a uselessly painful right shoulder which baffled orthopedic specialists.

I couldn’t even raise my arm to brush my hair or pick up a medical chart for six months. Within one month of the strict phase macrobiotic diet, as I described in detail in The Cure Is In the Kitchen, I was windsurfing in the Caribbean, because my shoulder was cured. As well, I’ve never had or needed another allergy injection. But what macrobiotics did for me is a drop in the bucket, compared with what I saw with hundreds of my patients. I saw people turn on and off like a switch such conditions as multiple sclerosis, severe chemical sensitivities, multiple myeloma and other cancers and conditions.

Medical researchers now have conclusively shown that 95% of all disease, including cancer has only two major causes: diet and environment. We’re the first generation of man to have ever eaten so many processed foods low in nutrients. As well we are the first generation to ever tank up on so many chemicals in our air, food, and water. As a result, the work of detoxifying this enormous, yet hidden load, causes the loss of even further nutrients. As well, government EPA studies show that 100% of U.S. humans harbor in their bodies PCBs, dioxins, volatile organic hydrocarbons, pesticides, heavy metals and other chemicals, most all of which are potent triggers to cancers. The load is so heavy now that when I was in medical school 35 years ago cancer was rare, the 10th cause of death. Now it is the number two disease to cause death in adults and number one for children ages 1-15. If that doesn’t give us a wake-up call that we have done something very nasty to the environment, then I guess nothing will. 

As a result, we have found that as healing as the macrobiotic diet is, many people are too polluted and nutrient-depleted to heal with just the macrobiotic diet alone. As we described in Detoxify Or Die, we show folks how to determine their levels of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and correct them. As well, how to determine their levels of toxicity and get the disease-promoting chemicals out of the body. The beauty is that the combination of the macrobiotic diet, nutritional correction and reversing the level of toxicity has enabled people to heal the impossible. And if they are just plain well, it’s the closest thing to the fountain of youth that we can attain, for it restores our levels of health back to where they were decades prior and in fact most are even better. Thank you for the opportunity to bring this information to folks. I’ve been practicing medicine for 33 years and also offer phone consultations to folks who want guidance through the maze of options. I know that many people are unnecessarily suffering. They haven’t a clue that they possess the major control over their health destiny.

Portugeezer & all forum members=the main reason that the macro diet works is because it’s a whole grain based diet

FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL STOP FIXATING ON FRUITS AND VEGGIES–WHOLE GRAINS ARE. MORE HEALING–VEGGIES ARE 25%-30% OF EACH MEAL-WHOLE GRAINS ARE 30 TO 50%…FRUITS ARE AN INSIGNIFICANT PART OF THE DIET….HERE IS THE “SCIENCE” ABOUT WHOLE GRAINS…ALSO HAVE 2 CUPS OF MISO SOUP PER DAY USING ORGANIC UNPASTEURISED. MISO–IT IS THE WORLDS BEST PRO-BIOTIC–PLUS MISO SOUP. IS ALKALISING AND REDUCES INFLAMMATION–THE MAIN CAUSE OF DISEASE AND PAIN—TIA

Phytonutrients & anti-oxidents  with Health-Promoting Activity Equal to or Even Higher than that of Vegetables and Fruits

Research reported at the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) International Conference on Food, Nutrition and Cancer, by Rui Hai Liu, M.D., Ph.D., and his colleagues at Cornell University shows that whole grains, such as brown rice, contain many powerful phytonutrients whose activity has gone unrecognized because research methods have overlooked them.

Despite the fact that for years researchers have been measuring the antioxidant power of a wide array of phytonutrients, they have typically measured only the “free” forms of these substances, which dissolve quickly and are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream. They have not looked at the “bound” forms, which are attached to the walls of plant cells and must be released by intestinal bacteria during digestion before they can be absorbed.

Phenolics, powerful antioxidants that work in multiple ways to prevent disease, are one major class of phytonutrients that have been widely studied. Included in this broad category are such compounds as quercetin, curcumin, ellagic acid, catechins, and many others that appear frequently in the health news.

When Dr. Liu and his colleagues measured the relative amounts of phenolics, and whether they were present in bound or free form, in common fruits and vegetables like apples, red grapes, broccoli and spinach, they found that phenolics in the “free” form averaged 76% of the total number of phenolics in these foods. In whole grains, however, “free” phenolics accounted for less than 1% of the total, while the remaining 99% were in “bound” form.

In his presentation, Dr. Liu explained that because researchers have examined whole grains with the same process used to measure antioxidants in vegetables and fruits—looking for their content of “free” phenolics”—the amount and activity of antioxidants in whole grains has been vastly underestimated.

Despite the differences in fruits’, vegetables’ and whole grains’ content of “free” and “bound” phenolics, the total antioxidant activity in all three types of whole foods is similar, according to Dr. Liu’s research. His team measured the antioxidant activity of various foods, assigning each a rating based on a formula (micromoles of vitamin C equivalent per gram). Broccoli and spinach measured 80 and 81, respectively; apple and banana measured 98 and 65; and of the whole grains tested, corn measured 181, whole wheat 77, oats 75, and brown rice 56.

Dr. Liu’s findings may help explain why studies have shown that populations eating diets high in fiber-rich whole grains consistently have lower risk for colon cancer, yet short-term clinical trials that have focused on fiber alone in lowering colon cancer risk, often to the point of giving subjects isolated fiber supplements, yield inconsistent results. The explanation is most likely that these studies have not taken into account the interactive effects of all the nutrients in whole grains—not just their fiber, but also their many phytonutrients. As far as whole grains are concerned, Dr. Liu believes that the key to their powerful cancer-fighting potential is precisely their wholeness. A grain of whole wheat consists of three parts—its endosperm (starch), bran and germ. When wheat—or any whole grain—is refined, its bran and germ are removed. Although these two parts make up only 15-17% of the grain’s weight, they contain 83% of its phenolics. Dr. Liu says his recent findings on the antioxidant content of whole grains reinforce the message that a variety of foods should be eaten good health. “Different plant foods have different phytochemicals,”he said. “These substances go to different organs, tissues and cells, where they perform different functions. What your body needs to ward off disease is this synergistic effect—this teamwork—that is produced by eating a wide variety of plant foods, including whole grains.”

Presently Jupiter is in retrograde motion in the sign Sagittarius, the sign of religion.  The retrograde motion is an indication of something going on behind the scenes.  As Jupiter co-rules France’s 9th house that in addition to religion and churches governs immigrants, I’d take an educated guess that the fire was deliberately started by immigrants of an authoritarian mind-set, as Saturn also co-rules their 9th house.

“Are these three signs together a bad mixture?”

No.  What has to be taken into consideration (in this instance) is how the planets affect the horoscope of France.  France has the sign Aries Rising @ 20*.  On April 15, 2019, Saturn was transiting the 10th house (destiny) of France and formed a square to the Ascendant (Rising Sign), signaling something painful was about to occur.  As Saturn is natally placed in the 9th house of religion/churches, that is where the pain would be experienced.

Nostradamus

Chef d’Aries, Jupiter et Saturne,
Dieu eternel quelles mutations?
Puis par long siecle son maling temps retourne,
Gaule et Italie, quelles emotions?

The head of Aries, Jupiter and Saturn,
God eternal, what changes can be expected?
Following a long century, evil will return
France and Italy, what emotions will you undergo?

Some interpret the fire but think it’s more than that like the unintended consequences to opening the gate to invasion of the Mid East.
It’s a distraction from the yellow vests.
Are these three signs together a bad mixture?

A long century can be interpreted differently. As in the long 19th century. The period from 1789 to 1914, beginning with the French Revolution and ending with the start of World War 1. Perhaps it already started with them by driving out or killing too many good and brave who would fight for them.
If they should of learned anything from the Jewish atrocity they think they can make up for that by letting in the Muslims. For one the Jewish were their own citizens they turned on.
They’ve learned nothing because they’re turning on them again but this time by allowing a foreign invaders to attack their own citizens.

The books Richard posted sounds more like it. Plus they’re recipes for foods that revolve around this diet everywhere like roasted carrot soup for instance and other recipes but might have to take out some of the ingredient or trade for others.
This book is still sold and has revised editions as well if you scroll down.
Note that he did have surgery to remove the tumor. Hopefully Winedoc could lead you in the right direction.

Hugh Faulkner (doctor)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to navigationJump to search

Hugh Faulkner (22 September 1912 – 19 April 1994) was a communist doctor who practised in North London. He was a significant figure in both the Medical Practitioners’ Union and the Socialist Health Association, and a key figure in the development of the 1966 Doctor’s Charter.[1] He retired to Italy where he continued his political activities.

Diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas in 1987, he adopted a macrobiotic diet and survived a further seven years. He wrote a book about his experiences, Physician Heal Thyself, The Cancer Prevention Diet and lectured on the subject.[2]

Pancreatic Cancer Recovery

A Doctor Heals Himself of Terminal Illness

Dr. Hugh Faulkner was 74 when he was diagnosed as having terminal cancer of the pancreas and was given three months to live. As a last resort, he turned to macrobiotics and made a miraculous recovery. Today Dr. Faulkner is 79 and feels as fit and healthy as he did in his youth. In Physician Heal Thyself, Dr. Faulkner and his wife, Marian, a nurse, recount his dramatic recovery.

The radiologist seemed rather bored with yet another routine, probably unnecessary, ultrasound scan. Suddenly he stopped and concentrated on one area of my abdomen. He didn’t tell me what he had found but got up and left the room. When he came back, he asked me to go back and see my doctor immediately. We learned from the doctor that the radiologist had seen a mass in the region of my pancreas, a mass which was almost certainly cancerous. He advised an immediate operation. I knew that I could expect to live only a few months, with or without the operation. My surgeon performed the operation himself. He found a tumor “the size of a cricket ball” in the head of the pancreas.

Waiting to die, Dr. Faulkner prepared to check into a hospice outside of London when a shiatsu practitioner encouraged him to try macrobiotics.

Like most people, I was used to a diet of a little red meat, chicken, plenty of eggs, vegetables, white pasta, brown bread, regular use of sugar, chocolates, sweets and several cups of coffee a day.

My initial macrobiotic diet included pressure-cooked brown rice, rice with barley and boiled millet, steamed, boiled or stewed vegetables, beans cooked with vegetables until soft as in a thick casserole or soup: and vegetable soups seasoned with wakame seaweed and miso, a thick salty paste.

We also ate other seaweeds, a salty, sour, pickled plum called umeboshi, tofu, whole wheat noodles, and stewed fruit twice a week. There was a wide range of seasonings and condiments. We drank mainly spring water or bancha tea which is brewed from twigs. I was advised not to have any meat, chicken, dairy food, eggs, sugar, alcohol, spices, biscuits, or refined foods.

I didn’t find the transition to a macrobiotic diet very difficult. Cooking has been a hobby of mine for the past fifteen years or so, and, from the first, I saw the macrobiotic cuisine as a new and interesting challenge.

We had both decided to follow the macrobiotic diet and way of life as seriously and completely as we could. This decision was clearly influenced by my death sentence. If there was any possibility that macrobiotics could help my body to resist the cancer, I was determined to give it every chance to do so. In the early days I was far from convinced about the effectiveness of macrobiotics; therefore, Marian’s determination and willingness to follow macrobiotic advice was enormously important.

But probably the most important fact was that I began to feel much better and energetic than I had for years after only two or three weeks on the diet.

My son, Tim, a radiologist in Norway, arrived and expressed his concern about me. Trained in orthodox Western medicine, he accepted the official prognosis. Though he agreed with our decision to try macrobiotics, he obviously regarded it as “clutching at straws.”

In all this activity, the most important single element was the sensation that I was regaining control of my own body and taking personal action which could possible – however improbable from the point of view of orthodox medicine -help my body to overcome cancer.

In the south of France, we heard Michio Kushi lecture for the first time. He has great charm and charisma, and discourages any attempts to make him a guru or some kind of saint. Aveline, his wife, gave cooking demonstrations. She is very small and delightful, in her sixties now, but looks far younger than her age.

Marian and I met with Michio. He listened to my brief history–it was exactly two months since my diagnosis. He looked very carefully at my face and eyes, and examined my abdomen. I asked him if macrobioticscould help me become free of cancer. He said, “No, but your body can.”

He then gave us a set of dietary instructions, which his assistant recorded as Michio talked about my particular diet in greater detail. Most of this can be found in Michio’s book, The Cancer Prevention Diet. The diet basically consists of 50 to 60 percent of whole brown rice or other whole grains, well cooked pulses, and fresh lightly cooked vegetables in season (preferably local and organically grown). Michio also stressed the importance of chewing every mouthful very well, of regular exercise, fresh air, pure water, and weekly shiatsu massage.

Stage 4 kidney cancer

Bob MikellTo all those walking in my path … it’s normal to be scared and skeptical at times when faced with something that seems to take all the control of your LIFE out of your hands and places it in the hands of strangers.

Just think positively and do not put your eyes on the path, but look up into the sky and breathe the fresh air, for it is here that your strength and healing will come.

You should know that I’d never been admitted to a hospital for anything before all of this happened. Sure, I’d get colds and the flu, but basically I was an average healthy person. I had worked for 26 years as a police officer and retired early as the commanding officer of the Investigation Bureau of the County Prosecutors Office in Somerset, N.J. I had learned to be invincible and deal with anything I had to deal with.

But I certainly wasn’t prepared to deal with kidney cancer. That happens to smokers and people who abuse themselves. Not me.

I’m truly a novice at all of this. But I’ve read several books and researched macrobiotics (MB) for hundreds of hours on the Internet. My girlfriend at the time and my four wonderful and loving adult kids also have spent hundreds of hours researching cancer treatment options.

I didn’t have the luxury of time when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma) on Oct. 30, 2002. On the day before Thanksgiving, Nov. 27, 2002, the top kidney surgeon at Sloan Kettering Medical Center in New York removed my right kidney – and a tumor the size of a football. An exploratory examination and biopsies were done. I was told they got it all.

Three months later, I learned that the cancer had spread to my liver and lungs. In a six week period CT scans showed the cancer tumors had grown 35 percent. Doctors ran more tests and consulted with other “medical experts” at Sloan Kettering. They decided that the best approach would be a clinical trial drug called Interferon. This drug had some success (15 percent) with slowing the growth of kidney cancer in clinical trials. I was told there is NO MEDICAL CURE for Kidney Cancer.

On my oncologist’s recommendation, I started weekly Interferon treatments. The side effects and success ratio from this and the other traditional medical options (chemo, Interferon, etc.) were well known. Doctors are not well versed, though, on nutritional aspects of healing or food in general. In my case, Stage 4 kidney cancer meant a 15 percent success rate with conventional medical treatment. But the definition of “success” was never clear, their hopes were that it would give me a few more months to live, certainly not cure me.

About five weeks into my Interferon treatments, I had to be taken off the drug because of the deleterious effects it was having on my white and red blood cell counts every week. The doctors told me I’d have to give my body about eight weeks to rebuild from the damage the medication caused, and then they could try something else. They had no hopeful answers as to what was next with traditional medicine. Recovery did not look like an option.

In May, 2003, I started a very strict macrobiotic healing diet (also known as a cleansing diet). This was five months after my surgery … and I’ve never looked back. The knowledge and counseling of a good MB nutritionist was most helpful. My first counselor was Elaine Nussbaum, from here in New Jersey, and another MB cancer survivor. Elaine and Janet Vitt Sommer are my heroes. Their own path to recovery from cancer gave me hope and vision for my recovery.  Their kindness, caring and thoughtful advise helped save my life, and I love them dearly.

I was determined to find a way to have “quality of life,” no matter what the time frame might be. I was torn between going with the medical recommendations to try other clinical trial drugs or with staying strictly on the MB approach. Early in my macrobiotic journey, I was hesitant and skeptical. I needed major persuasion and information to get started. There are so many wacky things on the Internet – some legitimate, others just scams or hype.

What convinced me that MB was the way to go was having the ability to control something in my life. That convincing came from attending classes and also speaking to dozens of Cancer survivors at my first Macrobiotic Conference. I didn’t know if the disease would respond to a macrobiotic approach, but the diet certainly couldn’t harm me. My research told me it made sense –even though I had no experience with it. It was something I could work on with a positive mindset, when everything surrounding me in the medical arena seemed negative and unclear at best.

In a short period of time I was already feeling the positive effects of the MB diet. For example, I’d been on Atenenol to control my high blood pressure for 15 years. In 30 days, the diet had reduced my blood pressure to 120/74, allowing me to stop taking that medication. Today in 2010 it is the same.

My doctors told me to eat whatever I wanted. They didn’t tell me that sugar and processed food, feed and energize disease and cancer. Doctors also didn’t tell me that my body would be less able to properly fight off the cancer growing inside me if it was using all its resources to digest meats, diary and heavy fats. I later learned that doctors typically get about four to eight hours of education on nutrition during eight years of medical school.

Please, DO NOT take this as MD bashing because it’s not intended to be that. It’s just fact. I owe a great deal to my surgeon at Sloan Kettering for his expertise in removing what had to be removed. He is the best in his field. But neither he nor my current oncologist know about or acknowledge macrobiotics. And they should!

I learned all of this by attending a national conference on macrobiotics in July of 2003 at the Kushi Institute Summer Conference and listening to about a several medical doctors who have traveled the same journey as me (many diagnosed with terminal cancer with two weeks or two months to live). I met more than 100 people there who share the same basic story as mine.

In August  2003, my CAT scan showed a 25 percent reduction of the liver tumor. My doctor told me to come back in six weeks for another scan. The October scan again surprised my oncologist, who couldn’t explain another drastic 45 percent reduction in the tumor. I reinforced the fact that I thought it was my diet. He simply responded by saying, “Just keep doing what you’re doing.”

Then, on Dec. 16, 2003, another scan showed no evidence of tumors. The doctor came into the room and said, “I don’t know what this miracle stuff is you’re doing but I don’t see anything on the scan.” He politely listened to our brief but enthusiastic explanation and said “keep doing what you’re doing and we’ll have you back in three months for a routine scan.” He didn’t ask any other questions once he found out it was the result of the diet I’d been on for SEVEN MONTHS!!

I wanted a quality of life no matter what the long-term prognosis might be. The need to have some control and input led me to MB. Thank God it did. It’s also very important to have a spouse or a partner to support and assist you. It would be very difficult without that.

I’m not unique. I’m fortunate to have been exposed to macrobiotics and have a dear and beloved friend, who helped me to see the path and stay the course. Macrobiotics is more than a diet. It’s an approach to balanced living, based on a balanced, wholesome diet (with natural foods), moderate exercise, and an understanding of harmony in our environment (our world and our body).

I haven’t come to understand all of the philosophical principles that are written and spoken about in MB yet. But I accept them as part of a bigger picture that will come to me in bite-sized pieces on my journey to better health and longevity. I initially focused on a strict healing diet, but after about a year started eating a standard macrobiotic diet. It takes discipline and commitment, but I have more energy and vitality than most men my age.

The greatest thing I have received from this MB journey is the ability to become responsible for my own life and health. I control my body’s energy and health by what I feed it. When I keep out toxins, feed it properly, and exercise moderately, it takes care of itself.

Healing Metastatic Cancer with Diet
By Janet E. Vitt, R.N., B.S.N.

 In April, 1995, one month after my forty-fifth birthday, I was diagnosed with small cell adenocarcinoma of the lung, Stage IV. My cancer had metastasized to my liver, pancreas, abdomen, and lymph system, and my prognosis was very poor.

As a practicing nurse since 1971, I knew how ominous my future appeared. My options included experimental “trial” chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation, all of which were considered palliative since my disease was so widely progressed.

A second treatment was not an option. At this point, my primary care physician offered me an opportunity to investigate alternative healing. For as long as God allows me to remain here on earth, I will be grateful t to this physician for his openness to complementary methods.

By this time, my condition had rapidly deteriorated and my sister had taken charge of caring for me. She contacted Francois Roland, a macrobiotic counselor in the Cleveland area where I live, and he came to my home. Observing my face and the palm of my hands, Francois asked questions related to diet. I will never forget the words he said to me, “you could be healed.”

Francois didn’t promise a miracle cure, but he did give me hope. He told me it would be difficult and that many people who have cancer die, even on the diet. I listened to every word he said. I embraced the philosophy of being responsible for my own healing and again and again replayed his words-”you could be healed’- in my head.

Hospice was very much a part of my life at this time. I was using oxygen; I needed pain medication, cough medication, a wheelchair, and a shower chair; and I had signed my DNR (do not resuscitate) papers. I had told my two teenage sons that I would die and they were not to call 911 if I should stop breathing. The hospice nurses and social workers were wonderful in helping me. I didn’t realize how much forgiving I needed to do-of others and myself. I now know forgiveness is a big step in healing.

My parents came from Florida to be with me. I wanted to die in my own home, and they had every intention of staying until the end which we felt would be quick. My sister and eight of my dearest friends started cooking for me. (even my ex-husband was supportive and participated in the meal preparation.) Francois returned to my home and gave a cooking class to this group as well as to my physician. My sister completely gutted my kitchen of anything that remained of the Standard American Diet. She filled it with whole grains, beans, organic vegetables, , sea vegetables, bancha twig tea, umeboshi plums, and macrobiotic cookbooks.

Looking back, I think the main cause of my problems was cheese. I was obsessed with cheese. Not a day passed when I didn’t eat it. I loved cheese omelettes, I enjoyed cheese on hamburgers, and I added cheese to all my vegetables. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, after aerobics class, I would come and eat cheese and crackers. I was a cheese-a-holic.

My healing was very basic. Today I believe that the dietary fast that was induced by the chemotherapy treatment and the basic healing diet were both a great advantage in allowing my body to rid itself of toxins.

I had several episodes of discharging. First of all was a terrible odor of my skin and body. As a nurse, I knew the smell the body takes on when it approaches death. I feared that this was what was happening to me. I called my counselor and he recommended I start doing a body scrub. It was unbelievable what happened. As I scrubbed my body, a tan-colored film was present on the washcloths. This smell and film continued for almost 8 weeks.

Now my skin is clear and as when I was 18. The second discharge consisted of thick, white mucus from my throat and lungs. Even as I slept, this copious mucus continued to be released. My friends and sister continued to cook for me. It was an uphill climb. My lungs filled with fluid. My left lung collapsed and spontaneous fractures developed in several ribs. I was admitted to the hospital with dehydration. There were days that I didn’t think I could continue. But my family and friends continued to cook and encourage me. They gave me massages, prayed, and shared their lives. Ten months on the macrobiotic diet, exactly one year from my diagnosis, I was tumor free.

There were several positive side effects of practicing macrobiotics. The migraine headaches I suffered from for over 20 years were gone. The joint pain in my knees and ankles, which I attributed to playing tennis and growing old, disappeared. My restless nights of sleep and waking to go to the bathroom became a thing of the past. My physicians were amazed at my recovery. At the hospital, the Tumor Board met to compare the new scans with my originals and couldn’t believe they were taken from the same person.

It has now been three and a half years since my cancer was originally diagnosed. I am completing level III of the Macrobiotic Career Training Program at the Kushi Institute in Becket. I continue a macrobiotic lifestyle and teach other survivors the importance of taking responsibility for their healing. One of the oncologists who originally opposed me is now referring his patients to me for dietary advice and guidance. Without God, my family, friends, physician, and this beautiful lifestyle, I know I would not be alive today.

I am reading through all the information and links that you have kindly taken the time to post and I am putting it into effect – even the “keep happy” suggestion.  I have reintroduced honey into my diet. I had taken it out because it was raising my sugar level. But now, with the diabetes more under control, it is not taking me sky high.

I can’t take the turmeric because (I forgot to mention) they also found a gall stone of significant size – but even that is not giving me pain at the moment.

I am now a strict vegetarian, studying and introducing macrobiotics into my lifestyle.  I’m hoping it has some effect within a couple of weeks as I am back with the Surgeon next Friday and then on to a team of specialists in Lisbon the following Monday.

Again, thanks for your support, it has been a long 16 years since Illinois Ike found me on the Newmont forum and brought me over to Goldies (MyCallToArms) and onwards and upwards from there. Well, not exactly I guess.

So folks, let’s get on with the show and see how Trump gets back at the Clintons and their entourage.

Best to all, Rich

8 Potent Nutrients Kill Cancer with no side effects

Can you prevent cancer with diet and lifestyle changes? For the overwhelming majority of people, the answer is an emphatic, “Yes.” Despite what the cancer industry would like you to believe, food is medicine. And eating the right foods can help ward off cancer. Studies have shown that upwards of 90 percent of all cancers can be traced back to dietary, lifestyle and environmental factors — which means very few cancers are just a case of bad luck and genetic lottery.

The links between lifestyle, diet, and cancer have been well-established. A 2008 study led by scientists at the University of Texas in Houston found that “cancer is a preventable disease that requires major lifestyle changes.”

I skipped right past your post and posted my usual drivel.

Sorry to hear that you are having to go through that battle. Life is hard enough without all the extras.

If I knew getting old was going to be so hard I never would have done it! 🙂

Stay strong, we’re all pulling for you!

That beach ball is a underground mine right now. You’d been better off going short and look at the beard shoulders pattern. Almost a top of a pie formation.
Hard to predict anything in PMs but besides bounces could go to 5 or below. Dyodd though.

It’s a long, uphill haul.  This is all the same train, coming around the ‘Big 10’ curve to climb the Rockies front range.
