 The movie The Secret reveals for the first time on film the secret of the ages and how the Law of Attraction can help you improve your health. There are important health-oriented aspects of it that are revealed to you in The Home Study course.

 

Secret #1: The True Purpose of Meditation

 

Many people feel a sense of fascination when confronted with the possibility of psychic intuition and heightened mental functioning. While meditators often report these sorts of improvements, these experiences are not the primary reason for practice. The purpose of meditation is to bring us back to ourselves.

 As we become healthier, happier and realize greater self-awareness, the other benefits of meditation begin to follow naturally — improved mental functioning, greater intuition as well as greater access to unconscious resources and abilities.

 Secret #2: Distraction Does Not Equal Failure

 Meditation is not work in the sense that you have to “force” yourself to concentrate completely for long periods of time. If we consciously try to prevent thinking, it’s going to have a negative impact on the meditation.

 

Instead, whenever we become lost in thought or confusion, we simply acknowledge those thoughts and then gently return the attention to the object of the meditation. We do this as many times as distraction or thought occurs. Eventually, the mind becomes calmer and discursive thought begins to slow.

Secret #3: Insight Alone Is Not Enough

 Insight alone will not transform our lives. Meditation is likely to help us by giving us larger perspectives and increasing clarity of thought. But although our sense of inner guidance might become stronger, unless we ACT on that guidance, we will never manifest the changes we truly want in our lives.

 This doesn’t just mean we need to take action in our outer world, for example, having an honest conversation with a friend or paying a bill.

It also means we must actively request the assistance of the unconscious in a clear and persistent way. When you do that, as I teach in “Secrets of Meditation, Energy and Manifestation,” you find yourself magnetically drawn toward your dreams with an irresistible impulse.

 

Secret #4: Learn To Let Go

 Once you have made your request, it’s important that you let go. Don’t be concerned with HOW you’re going to get what you truly want in your life. Needing to know how can hamper the process of making it manifest in the outer world. Learn to trust your unconscious.

 Some changes — perhaps all of them — will happen automatically. I have personally found that many of my less desirable habits simply dropped away with minimal conscious effort.

 For me, this was achieved by a “letting go” and a realization that spiritual growth is a natural process powered by parts of ourselves that know more than we can understand consciously.

 As we let go consciously and receive more input from these parts, we learn to trust this feeling, this feeling that we are in safe hands and that something amazing is about to happen.

From the desk of Dr Magne, author of Cancer Free For Life.  In the 17th century, the philosopher and scientist Descartes proposed the separation of the mind from the body. Descartes was encouraged by the Pope that he could pursue the study of human anatomy within the domain of science, as long as he left the study of the soul or mind to the church. So began the western’s world separation of the body and mind. That disconnection is now being remedied by modern science. Today studies by researchers in the emerging field of Psycho Neuro Immunology, PNI for short, have hard data explaining the mind/body connection. The same proof is now emerging from the field of quantum physics, and the more we research the mechanisms of the universe, the more we realize that we are made of the same primordial stuff and energy, and that all is connected, including the mind and the body. 

How does the mind/body connection work? It is explained in the complex pathways that run between the brain and the body’s nervous, endocrine, circulatory, and immune systems. We are literally wired by the brain, but it is our emotions and thoughts that trigger the complex chain of activities  that create physical manifestations such as increased blood pressure and heart rate, depletion of immune functions, and disruption of the body’s resting state.

 Science has shown that the brain signals the immune system via receptors on the surface of immune system cells, which accept chemical neurotransmitters released by the nervous system. These breakthrough studies have traced the body/mind connection to the level of cellular biology. Some cellular communication has been translated, but the full body language has yet to be unlocked.

How does this information affect us in our everyday lives? Stress is one area in which we can clearly see the body/mind connection. Subject a person to enough stress, and that stress will manifest in the body through nerve-fibre chemicals that tell immune cells what to do. The body expresses the stress as headaches, rashes, irritable bowel, hypertension, insomnia, or pain. Eventually, the physical effects of long-term stress may lead to cancer, heart attack, or other chronic conditions. The reverse is also true as chemicals released by immune system cells affect the brain. For example, when the body is fighting an illness, our minds often become drowsy.

 The good news is that while our emotions and thoughts can play a role in making us sick, we can also use them to help make us well. Better still, our minds can potentially keep us from getting ill in the first place. The mind has a tremendous power to heal or harm. How you use this power is up to you: your body does respond to the way you think, feel and act at every moment of every day. There are some simple ways to use the mind/body connection to benefit health:

  • Pay attention to your inner life. Don’t dwell on fear and negative thoughts. your perception or belief about your environment is more important than its reality.
  • Express yourself in appropriate ways. Learn to recognize your emotions and what’s causing them. At times we may need the assistance of therapists, doctors and spiritual advisors to help us understand ourselves better.
  • Establish social relationships. People involved with family, friends, and community seem to live longer, healthier lives.
  • Develop a positive mental outlook and sense of humour, Pollyanna was right. Laugh heartily at least once a day. Judge less and love more.
  • Seek spiritual fulfillment. Examine and draw upon what gives you meaning in life.
  • Connect with animals. Our pets keep us in touch with our basic needs. Numerous studies show connecting with pets is a significant factor in good health.
  • Learn meditation, visualization, prayer, yoga, hypnosis, or biofeedback. Find which of these is right for you.
  • Repeat positive affirmations to yourself, such as “I am in perfect balance. I bless my body with love.” These can reverse the changes brought on by stress.
  • Get regular exercise, enough sleep, and maintain good nutrition. Why? Aside from the obvious health benefits, societal beliefs list exercise, sleep and proper nutrition as the way to be healthy. When we engage in these activities, our perception is that what we are dong is good for us. These practices change our attitudes and reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Do not self-medicate with excess food, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Short-term relief can lead to long-term problems.

Where Did Your Mind Go?

November 14, 2006

Where Is YOur Mind When It Should Be Looking After Your Body? 

From the desk of Dr Magne, author of The Science of Being Well Home Study Course. 

Science is discovering more and more often that our mind has a lot of power to keep our body well. Our thoughts and beliefs seem to have an impact on the body. That in itself is a scary thought. Search this blog for more articles on this very topic of the power of the mind over the body. 

But if that is so, then where is the mind? Is your mind on your body? Are you thinking about your body? Not most of the time. Not unless it’s sick, or making you uncomfortable, or you’re in pain.

 Most of the time, you’d be hard pressed to even tell where your mind is. It’s probably aimlessly wandering around what you have to do today, what you didn’t do today, where the money went, where the money didn’t go that it should have, where is the money coming from, where your kids are, where your kids are not, where your spouse is. No, better not think of that. Your mind is out of control, wandering all over the place, like a crazy monkey. 

We actually squander our day and our mental resources in useless musings that are most often not conducive to health, or to relaxation. Out of the thousands of thoughts we have in one day, most are likely to be worrisome, depressing, and having a negative impact on our health and well-being.  

We are never in the present moment and our normal state of mind is severely suboptimal. It’s more asleep than awake, in the sense that it is mostly unaware of its own wanderings and musings. Your body is here, and your mind is someplace else. In that state, you can’t function at your best. It’s the normal state of affairs but it leaves us out of touch with a great deal of life, including our bodies. Most people are really frightened of their bodies, or they don’t even like them very much, or they’re afraid of growing old. All of this is usually happening below the surface of awareness, which means that our subconscious thoughts are creating a kind of prison for us, which regulates a lot of our behavior. We are never in the present moment.  

It would be well to start focus exercises to learn to tame the mind and put it under your control and put its resources to your own use. Several times a day, on the hour for instance, you can stop what you’re doing and take a look at your mind. Examine the thoughts that come across your internal landscape for the next few minutes. See how your thoughts jump from one association to another. Notice the positive thoughts, the ones that reinforce you, support you. Notice the negative thoughts, the ones that tear you down, the depressing ones. 

Ask yourself what thoughts serve you best. Can you control your thoughts, can you bring your mind back to the present? Absolutely. Can you do that easily? Not so easily. But you can do it.

 It takes practice. It takes awareness. The awareness comes in the  focus to attend to your thoughts, to witness them. They’re not good or bad. They are. Just examine them. You can always learn to change them soon. 

I’ll share with you a beautiful focusing exercise. Do you eat dry raisins? Do this at home, in a quiet moment. Take 3 dry raisins. No more than that. Only 3. Then slowly and deliberately, bring one raisin to your mouth. Observe the order from the brain to your mouth, observe your fingers closing around the small shape of the raisin. How does it feel in your hand? Is your mouth starting to water? Are you remembering previous raisins?Then slowly raise the first raisin to your lips. At what point can you start smelling it? Touch the raisin to your lips before you put it in your mouth.How does that feel?Then close your eyes, and slowly put the raisin in your mouth. Feel the weight of your arm bent over, where are the rest of your other fingers, the ones you’re not using?Then before you chew the raisin, feel it in your mouth. Saturate it with saliva. Feel it with your tongue. Move it around in your mouth. Then bite on it. How does that feel? What part of your teeth did you use? Was the raisin juicy? Was is dry? How does it taste like? Do you remember ever tasting a raisin like this?Then chew it slowly, to a pulp. There’s no hurry. Chew very deliberately. Then swallow it. Imagine it going down the pipe, to the stomach, and into your body. Imagine the processes that come into play.Then take the second raisin. 

Then the third. 

Reflect on your experience.You are learning to focus. 

This powerful exercise is yours to repeat as you wish, as often as you wish. There are many such exercises for your health, mental and physical, in the Home Study Course. Visit the website and download a free audio today!!!

THINKING YOURSELF BACK TO HEALTH 

From the desk of Dr Magne, author of the Science Of Being Well Home Study Course 

 

Wallace Wattles, who wrote The Science of Being Well, explains how one is able to call on his own inner resource to regain health. “Your getting well does not depend upon the adoption of some system, or the finding of some remedy; people with your identical ailments have been healed by all systems and all remedies. It does not depend upon climate; some people are well and others are sick in all climates. It does not depend upon avocation, unless in case of those who work under poisonous conditions; people are well in all trades and professions.

Your getting well depends upon your beginning to think – and act – in a Certain Way.

The way a person thinks about things is determined by what he believes about them. His thoughts are determined by his faith, and the results depend upon his making a personal application of his faith.

Faith, personally applied, cures. And no matter how great the faith or how persistent the thought, it will not cure without personal application. The Science of Being Well, then, includes the two fields of thought and action.

A person is a thinking center, capable of originating thought, and as he does not know everything, he makes mistakes and thinks error. Not knowing everything, he believes things to be true which are not true. A person holds in his thought the idea of diseased and abnormal functioning and conditions, and so perverts the action of the Principle of Health, causing diseased and abnormal functioning and conditions within his own body.”

The power of our thoughts is so powerful that it is now being demonstrated by such researchers as Candace Pert, the author of the Molecules of Emotion, Laurence Magne, in Cancer Free For Life, which can be purchased on the website of the same name, www.cancer-free-for-life.com, and in general the field of Psycho-Neuro-Immunology (PNI) that our thoughts influence the molecular structure of our body. For instance, it is now a generally accepted fact that the onset of cancer in 80% of cases is preceded in the previous 3 years by a major trauma like a death of a spouse, a relocation, a divorce. As James Allen wrote, As we think, so we become. I have created for your education a complimentary CD which contains the 5 secrets to creating abundant health. It is my goal and my purpose to educate you to reclaim your health, using simple techniques that will keep you away from surgery, chemotherapy, and can ensure that you remain vibrantly healthy for the rest of your life.

You deserve to reclaim your health today. You owe it to yourself and your family. Claim your complimentary CD today by visiting www.wallacewattleshomestudy.com and download a copy immediately.

It is your right to know the inner abilities you have that can help you to remain fit and healthy, thereby living the life of your dreams. Because once you conquer the basic principles of health as outlined on this complimentary CD, you will also know how to control your thoughts, and you will have learned how disease is created first in the mind.

 

Curing Cancer One Step Closer

September 11, 2006

Curing Cancer Is One Step Closer 

From the desk of Dr Magne, author of http://www.Cancer-Free-For-Life.comGuy Dauncey,  co-chair of http://www.preventCancernow.ca, writes that there are many ways to describe how our world came to be so affected by Cancer. Here is how the vicious cycle got started. 

It started with farming 200 years ago when the German chemist Justus von Liebig (1803-1873) wondered what soil was made from. He burnt some and found that the ashes contained potassium and phosphorus. So farmers began feeding their soil with fertilizer of potassium and phosphorus instead of organic matter. This has led to a dramatic loss of minerals in the soil. From 1940 to 2002, plants grown on modern farms have lost 47 % of their iron, 21 % of their magnesium and 100 % of their copper. (Except when they are grown organically.) Humans: 0— Cancer cells: 1 

The plants are now more susceptible to insects and pests, so farmers treat them with pesticides and fungicides. This seems to make the problems go away, but plants have evolved over millions of years and are extraordinarily successful at fighting off disease. When they sense an attack coming, they generate phytonutrients to defend themselves. When we eat those plants, we acquire their disease-fighting qualities. When the plants are no longer attacked by the insects and pests because the pesticides keep them away, they don’t generate the phytonutrients, so even if we eat our five servings of fruit and veggies a day, they won’t contain the disease-fighting properties we need. (Unless they have been grown organically.) Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 2 

Our bodies need selenium too; it’s a natural Cancer-fighting agent. But the fertilizers bind to the selenium, inhibiting its uptake by plants. Mercury pollution and acid rain from burning fossil fuels also inhibit its uptake. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 3 

The food is harvested, but since the phytonutrients give fruit juice a bitter taste, and we prefer a sweet, smooth taste, they are removed by the bottlers. We also ship much of our fruit and vegetables in from Florida and
California, where they are picked before they are ripe, and before they have had a chance to develop phytonutrients. Humans: 0—
Cancer cells: 4
 

Meanwhile, people are eating more meat. This is good news for the cancer cells, because meat gives nowhere near the protection that plant foods do. Wherever people eat a vegetarian diet, they have less cancer. Humans: 0, — Cancer cells: 5 

What else do we eat? Sugar, of course! The average North American consumes 150 pounds of sugar, sucrose and fructose a year. This requires the pancreas to produce more insulin, raising our level of blood sugar, which the body stores as fat. The fat sends weird messages to our hormones (another cause of cancer) and sucks up toxic chemicals such as PCBs and chemical flame-retardants. This is great news for the cancer cells. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 6 

Because many people don’t like to get fat, however, the food industry uses sweeteners made from aspartame, which has “Warning: Cancer!” written all over it. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 7 

By now, we’re getting busy, so we sit our kiddies by the TV where the average child watches a junk food commercial every five minutes. By two years of age, 20 % of our babies are eating candy every day. The lack of exercise, combined with the sugar intake, makes them overweight. Then we feed them hot dogs, containing nitrite additives that form carcinogens. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 8 

Meanwhile, we are cooking our meat at high temperatures, eating baked goods and using microwaves. All this generates acrylamides, which are known to cause cancer in animals. Our fruits and veggies have pesticide residues (unless they have been grown organically), and our soft drinks contain ingredients that form benzene, another potent carcinogen. To make the junk food taste better, industry adds chemical colourants, flavourings and preservatives. Humans: 0 — Cancer cells: 9 

Finally, many mothers do all this during pregnancy, feeding their growing babies the worst possible diet. And still too many mothers fail to breastfeed, depriving their children of their full immune system development. Humans: 0— cancer cells: 10 

The way to turn the game around? Stop all the nonsense. Eat fresh, home-prepared, locally grown, organic, vegetarian food — raw where possible — with all its minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants intact. Humans: 10 — Cancer cells: 0 

There are many causes for cancer, not the least of which is a predisposition in the environment. You must remember that we all carry cancer cells in our body. They are cells that modify themselves due to environmental stresses and emotional or physical stresses. The role of the immune system is to eliminate these cells, which it does in the course of its normal functioning. In www.Cancer-Free-for-Life.com, I explain the crucial role of the immune system in fighting Cancer, and suggest effective and natural methods for remaining Cancer-free. 

If you live in a stressful environment, share a house with someone with whom you are in a toxic relationship, if you are unhappy with your job, and eat foods that don’t support your body, then cancer is more likely to develop. Why? Because as more demands are put on the immune system, it attends to what it considers its priorities. It aims for survival. It will fight an infection before it fights cancer cells. If you are feeding it unhealthy foods, sugars, foods that are laden with pesticides and fungicides, it becomes weakened and has to work harder to conduct its normal duties. Your thoughts and emotions will also affect your immune system, and negative thoughts and hurtful emotions such as anger, depression, sadness, have been shown to depress and weaken the immune system. You must realize how vitally important it is for you to become aware of your every thought. Further, you must reclaim your life and your happiness. You do have a choice over the circumstances of your life, who inhabits it, what work you do. Your life depends on it! You too can be Cancer free!!! Today!!!

September Stress Buster

September 2, 2006

September is BACK TO SCHOOL month!!! The holidays are over, summer is almost over, the days are getting shorter, it’s getting cooler.

ARGGGGH!!! Who even wants to think about that? It means it’s time to go shopping for kids stuff, upgrade the computer, spend hours in crowded shops with stressed out mothers and excited children, all trying to get organized for the next school year.

And that’s before you even have to cope with the pile of work on your desk, sorting through the thousands of junk emails, making sure you don’t delete any important ones. You’re back at your desk, all the memories of the previous year flooding you, the raise you didn’t get, the clients you have to deal with, the problems with the warehouse, maybe even an office move or a new boss.

The memories of the beach, the sun drenched sails on the Med, or the country cottage with the gentle bird songs gently fade away to oblivion, as you become friends again with your Day Timer and glue your cell phone to your ear.

Welcome back to September!!!

Did you know that 90% of doctor’s visits are for stress-related symptoms? Did you know that studies have shown that biological stress can lead to disease unless controlled? Your health and state of well-being depend on you to learn to control and manage stress in your life.

Stress leads to tension, physical and emotional strain. This can cause problems like insomnia, headaches, problems concentrating, fatigue, weight loss and even suppress our immune system and cause cancer. Stress lowers your frustration tolerance, thereby predisposing you to become upset about the least irritation. In the short term, these changes will give you more strength to fight, say, a saber tooth tiger. But in today’s world these elaborate preparations are probably wasted.

Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations With God, tells a story of how he witnessed two ducks fighting. One duck felt that his territory had been invaded by the other, and a fierce crossing of beaks and much flapping of wings took place. Neale doesn’t state how the fight was won, but eventually, the ducks walked away from each other. After they reached a reasonable distance, they both shook their entire body, flapped their wings, and resumed their previous life as if nothing had happened. They had a strategy for removing the adrenalin and the anger out of their body. Maybe ducks have something to teach us.

Most people regard stress as a response we make to circumstances in which expectations of what we can do exceed our capacity to deliver. Not only can stress precipitate an emotional crisis; it can, if unremitting, also lead to disease and shorten your life. ”The nature of stress is not always the usual stuff that people think of. It’s not the external stress of war or money loss or somebody dying, it is actual the internal stress of having to adjust oneself to somebody else. Cancer, ALS, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and these other conditions happen to people who have a poor sense of themselves as independent persons. On the emotional level, that is, they can be highly accomplished in the art, or intellectually, but on an emotional level, they have a poorly differentiated sense of self. They live in reaction to others without ever really sensing who they themselves are.”

In a healthy body, this synchronicity is perfectly regulated. Healthy people are firmly locked into these rhythms. When disease occurs, one of those rhythms has gone awry. Stress is the biggest disrupter. If you’re stressed, if you’re feeling hostility, your body’s balance gets thrown off. Stress breaks our connection with everything else. When you experience disease, some part of your body begins to get constricted. You cana learn easily how to bring your body back into balance!

LET ME HELP YOU!!!

As the author of Cancer Free For Life, which you find on http://cancer-free-for-life.com, I am aware of the dangers of too much stress on your health. I have put together a special package, which is available only for the month of September, just when you need it the most.

http://www.alternative-health-ebooks.com/SeptemberSpecial.html

 

From the office of Dr. Laurence Magne, author of http://www.cancer-free-for-life.com

 

It seems that with the ongoing advances of traditional medicine, the discover of new diseases keep up to ensure that there are always a few monsters under the bed to scare us.  Any disease for which we have a successful treatment and cure, obviously, loses its edge.  Our fear factor is only truly engaged by a terminal cancer, which is believed to be hopeless.

 

Thus, for the current generation of physicians, healers and patients, we have cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease and a short list of other scary conditions.  A terminal cancer can be defined as active and progressive illness for which there is no cure and the prognosis is fatal.

 

However, history has proven time and time again that a much better definition of terminal cancer would be an active and progressive illness for which there is no cure…yet.  The vast majority of our previously terminal cancers are now treatable and patients recover to on living a full life. To learn how disease is created  in the body, and why, read Cancer Free For Life. You will find a detailed analysis of what causes cancer and how it can be stopped and cured.

 

Sadly, far too many people perish prior to the discovery of a traditional cure.  Sadder still is the fact that too many people meet their fatal fate far too soon simply because they were told that they have a “terminal cancer.”

 

Evidence exists, and continues to build, which indicates that perhaps the most terminal aspect of these illnesses is the proclamation that they actually are fatal.  The effect that this statement has on the outlook and belief system of the average patient is actually staggering.

 

Realistically, all healing happens within us.  Though we have many tools at our disposal, via doctors or homeopathic practitioners or our own spirituality and/or knowledge self.  Any tool that we choose, embrace and accept as workable will lead us down the path of self healing. 

 

Not all tools are created equal, however.  The difference between using a cheap hammer with a loose head and using a high-end hammer with a solid head may, at first, be unnoticeable.  After all, the nail still ends up embedded in the wood.  It is only a matter of time before the cheap hammer slips, potentially providing us with great injury in the process.

 

It is the same in the field of healing.

 

Those faced with a terminal cancer are often offered pharmaceutical concoctions designed to treat the symptoms of the illness or to make our “transition easier.”  Some of these chemical creations may even be able to extend the length of our lives.  The price we pay, for far too many of them, is a sacrifice of our quality of life.

 

The voices of those who work and believe in therapy techniques have finally become more easily accessible to those who want to look.  While it should go without saying that everyone should take total personal accountability for their own health, this concept becomes incredibly important once there is a terminal cancer involved.

From the desk of Dr Laurence Magne, author of Cancer Free For Life  

Is it possible to maintain the rate at which injuries, wounds and even cancer heal? That’s the question a group of researchers from the Ohio State University asked when they decided to observe wound healing rates in a group of exercising older adults in comparison to that of a non-exercising control group.

This three-month study looked at the effects of exercise on wound healing among healthy older adults. All participants had not exercised regularly for six months, so the 28 participants who were encouraged to exercise were given one month to acclimatize to a new exercise program that included 30 minutes of pedaling on a stationary bike, 15 minutes jogging or brisk walking on a treadmill, and 15 minutes of strength training. Fifteen participants acted as controls by not changing their level of physical activity. All then underwent a small puncture wound about half a centimeter across and deep on the back of the upper arm. Individual wounds were measured three times a week until fully healed. Regular exercisers took only 29 days to heal, while non-exercisers took up to 10 days longer to recover.

From these results, researchers have speculated that exercise may speed wound healing by enhancing neuron-endocrine function, meaning that stronger individuals have a higher body function that helps the body heal wounds and cancer faster.

The point of this study is not that exercise is important. It is now acknowledged as an important factor in maintaining health. The salient point is that even moderate exercise can improve the time to recover in wound and cancer healing.

In the case of a cancer diagnostic, the body and its recovery system: the immune system, are stressed by the attack of the disease on the body. Even a moderate level of exercise can improve your condition. Your breathing rate increases, bringing more oxygen to your cells. Your heart rate increases as well, pumping and circulating that oxygen to all parts of the body.

The immune system contains some of the fastest replicating cells in the human body.  You must remember that self healing does occur for people with cancer.  It doesn’t yet happen as often or as fast as it does with the cold or with the flu, but it can.  The main strategy to improving the self-healing capacity of the body is obvious: increase the strength of the immune system.  Strengthening the immune system is probably the most significant thing you can do for yourself to heal cancer and wounds quicker, and as a happy side-effect, many other life improvements come along with an improved immune system.

One very simple improvement is a modification in breathing.  Far too often, we take quick and shallow breaths.  This can lead to a higher blood pressure, as it constricts the blood vessels.  That constriction slows our circulation, which also reduce the speed with which our immune system can respond to a problem.

Everything going on in your body is dependant upon a steady and regular circulation of blood.  Anything that interferes with that circulation is unhealthy and needs to be resolved immediately. It can slow down healing and promote cancer.

The solution to this problem is really rather simple: commit five minutes, three times a day, to breathe deeply.  You can do this while working, reading, driving, etc.  You’ll probably find it most beneficial if you start your day and end your day with one of these five minute breathing exercises. To learn more ways to remain cancer-free, read Cancer Free For Life.

In close conjunction with the concept of deeper and more thorough breathing is the practice of relaxation with breathing exercises.  This focuses solely on the action of breathing while you do it.  Obviously, then, this requires that you not be driving or reading a book.  Instead you simply find a comfortable place to sit, put yourself into the most comfortable sitting posture, and focus on your breathing. 

To really focus on breathing during this time, you should focus your attention on your belly, as if you have a balloon in your stomach.  Inhale, slowly, to fill the balloon and focus on the expansion happening in your stomach area.  Hold the breath for a comfortable amount of time and exhale slowly, depleting the balloon in your stomach.

You’ll probably find out almost immediately that you feel a lot better…even if you didn’t realize you could! In the process, you are also strengthening your immune system, providing it with the necessary support to speed healing of cancer and wounds.

Cancer treatments can cause serious damage to the immune system.  This damage opens you up to a wide-range of infections and diseases.  If you are diagnosed with cancer, it’s important that you listen to what your physician tells you with an open mind.  Don’t operate under the assumption that your doctor will know everything there is to know.  Research all your other options, learn everything you can and take control of your own recovery. Your doctor doesn’t have the time to get to know you. Often the cancer prognostic you receive is only the result of statistics and probabilities, but doesn’t take into account your own ability to recover and your will to live.

 Even moderate exercise and deep breathing can save your life from cancer by speeding up your healing. You will find many more articles on this important topic of healing of cancer when you visit http://alternative-health-ebooks.com

For many women, hearing a diagnostic of breast cancer remains one of their greatest fears. 

Obviously, in the worst case scenario, such a diagnostic will end up being fatal and killing her.  With successful treatment, traditional medicine often ends up cutting off one or both breasts, which can kill her spirit.  This can hardly be sincerely referred to as healing breast cancer.

 

Once diagnosed, traditional cancer therapy has very little to offer most patients except partial hopes and reconstructive surgery.

 

Breast cancer is the most common malignant cancer affecting North American and European women.  Breast cancer occurs when one of the cells in the breast begins to replicate without boundaries, developing into tumors.  These tumors are what women generally discover as lumps during self-examination of their breasts.

 

The tumors are not always dangerous, so finding a lump is not automatic evidence of cancer.  A benign tumor is not cancerous and will not spread to other parts of the body.  A malignant tumor is cancerous and can potentially spread to invade other parts of the body.  If a tumor appears cancerous, a number of non-invasive tests will be run in an attempt to rule out malignancy.

 

After those tests, it may still be necessary to conduct a biopsy to determine for certain if a tumor is malignant.  Once the results are returned, if the tumor is malignant, then it is staged and a course of treatment suggested by the physician.

 

Surgery is almost always involved with what the traditional medical community calls healing breast cancer.  In the best of situations, this results in a lumpectomy.  This surgery only removes as much of the breast as necessary to remove the cancer from the patient.  A lumpectomy is always accompanied by radiation therapy, which carries with it many risks.  Of course, the patient is unlikely to need plastic surgery afterwards.

 

If the cancer has spread, the patient may be forced to undergo a partial or radical mastectomy, which leaves her looking quite different than she did before the surgery.  This change in appearance is often times as hard, or harder, for the patient to deal with than the cancer itself.

 

After undergoing painful and traumatic surgery, the physician will often recommend courses of chemotherapy as well.  Chemotherapy is a poison which attacks and kills replicating cells.  Cancer is a cell which replicates faster than normal, so the prescription of chemotherapy is a prescription for gambling wherein the physician bets the cancer dies before the patient.

 

Despite what most patients think, these are not the only therapies available; they are simply the only ones routinely available through traditional medicine.  For many physicians, they simply were not ever introduced to any alternatives to traditional therapy courses during medical school.  A mythology too often exists that, if it wasn’t taught in medical school, it must not be worth knowing.

 

For that reason, any patient who is sincere about healing breast cancer, must investigate treatment alternatives herself.  The very act of taking, and feeling, responsible for one’s own healing is often highly theraeutic.  As with any treatment, healing breast cancer takes place entirely in the patient, so taking that responsibility is imperative. However, by being informed, the breast cancer patient can find out that there are options out there that do not involve radical surgery. Many women have recovered completely and successfully from many forms of breast cancer. Healing breast cancer is an option that doesn’t always involve extreme treatments. Such techniques as a change of diet, visualization, meditation, can be helpful in the remission and healing of breast cancer. Just knowing that breast cancer can be healed using alternative methods is a powerful step in the direction of remission. You will find many such techniques in the ebook Cancer Free For Life, available for immediate download.
