Chemo Drugs Proven to Cause Cancer Growth

***THIS IS IMPORTANT***

“Significance

In this article we report a large-scale chemical screen in adult Drosophila to find inhibitors of stem-cell–derived tumors. To our surprise, we found that some Food and Drug Administration-approved chemotherapy drugs have the dual property of reducing growth of stem-cell–derived tumors while also stimulating hyperproliferation of their wild-type counterparts. Since hyperproliferation is one of the hallmarks of cancer cells, this side effect could contribute to refueling the growth of the very tumors that these chemotherapeutics are intended to inhibit. We show that this side effect is driven by the evolutionarily conserved Janus kinase-signal transducers and activators of transcription (JAK-STAT) inflammatory pathway, raising the possibility that the JAK-STAT pathway may also be activated in humans who are treated with some chemotherapeutics.”

“These results reveal an unanticipated side effect on stem cells that may contribute to tumor recurrence.”

Thoughts on Equality

I so look forward to getting to work each morning. I revel in the opportunity to help people recover from serious health problems.

My thoughts this morning are again on equality. Can two individual human beings be equal? I like to split the human experience into four parts. Which of these parts can be brought to equal across a group of people?

Time (24 hours/day)                    – Time (24 hours/day)
Talent (10,000 different skills)   – Talent (different cluster of natural skills)
Training (compounds over time) – Training – (different paths lead to different places)
Treasure (hand-me-downs)         – Treasure (more debt than treasure)
________________________________________________________________
Success (fulfilled and generous)    -Failure (fearful and dangerous)

These factors carry varying weight and can shift as time passes.

Notice the only part of this equation that is actually equal on both sides is time.

Time is where we are equal.

What we each do with our time as it passes creates separation or understanding between us. Then the beat goes on….  Each pulse we all loose time, gain experience, face challenges, and live on.

misleading marketing with good intentions

What happens to your statistics when you count someone as cured, that never really had the disease in the first place?

There is a claim going around that breast cancer can be cured 95% of the time if caught early enough.  But, when is it too early?  When does the application of dangerous and damaging treatment for a suspicion of a possible cancer become a greater risk to life and limb for women who’s test results were false positives, or would have stabilized on their own?

This is a tough question. One that each individual should be empowered to make on their own.  The following article is a good discussion on the misleading claims of the Komen Foundation about the benefits of mammograms.  I look forward to our discussion on this sensitive issue.

Researchers at Penn State discover a virus that kills cancer

The best part about it?  80% of you already have this virus.  It causes no symptoms and does not harm healthy cells but aggressively attacks cancer cells.

“Scientists at the Penn State College of Medicine said this week they have discovered a virus that is capable of killing all grades of breast cancer “within seven days” of first introduction in a laboratory setting.”  Read original article here

The new office is under construction!  Things are getting really exciting around here.  Just wanted to remind everyone from now until our grand opening you can purchase the 10 wellness treatment packages for $300.00.   Once things get humming down at Burlington Creek, I’m not sure when or if this offer will ever be repeated.  It might be a good idea to stock up now.  They never expire and can be shared with whom ever you want.

Canadian Research group shows dandelion root tea kills cancer

Just a reminder, our brand new clinic is under construction in the Village at Birlington Creek on 64th street just west of I-29.  The 10 for $300.00 discount will be available until opening day.  Stock up now!

Cancer-killing dandelion tea gets $157K research grant

His team’s first phase of research showed that dandelion root extract forced a very aggressive and drug-resistant type of blood cancer cell, known as chronic monocytic myeloid leukemia, to essentially commit suicide.

Researchers then discovered that repeated treatment with low dose dandelion root extract was effective in killing most of the cancerous cells.

Doctor – Patient – Confidentiality

When I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College and earned my Doctorate Degree, one of the things I had learned was the importance of keeping everything the patient told me completely confidential.
(Confidential – to be kept private, not shared, not discussed with anyone else, not revealed without direct instruction from the patient.)

I still take that responsibility very seriously.  Nothing you say to me during a treatment session will ever be repeated outside that door, without your direct instructions.

But over the past 20 years, I have seen a loss of expectation for privacy in our health records.

Now, the intimate details of our lives, illnesses, sufferings, and frailties are connected with our financial records and distributed across the globe. To potential employers, future spouse, colleges, ex-wives, police, lawyers, salesmen, anyone interested in us.

Call me old fashioned, but I will not participate in this attack on your privacy.  If you trust me as your doctor, I will keep records in a hand written format.  Everything stays confidential and between you and me.  Nothing leaves my files except directly to you.  (or your next of kin)

So if you have a bad back, but don’t want your employer to know.  Get in here.

If you need a safe ear to share your troubles, I promise to keep it confidential.  (Unless you tell me your an axe murderer)

If something is going on with your kid, and you are afraid it might affect his chances for a scholarship, I can help.

There are so many situations the details of your health condition should be private, I am an oasis of privacy.

Let me help
