Natural remedies for menopause symptoms — meaning those that don’t involve taking hormone replacement therapy drugs — are safe and can be helpful during this transition phase to decrease symptom severity and duration.

Top foods causing hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms
1) Processed Sugar – Yeast and candida overgrowth in the gut which causes inflammation
2) Processed Soy – Contain estrogens
3) Conventional Meats – Packed with hormones, steroids and antibiotics that affect your hormones causing low sex drive and low energy
4) Packaged Foods – Contain hydrogenated oils and refined flours
5) Artificial Sweeteners – Sucralose, Aspartame and Splenda
6) Gluten – Cause inflammation of gut lining and can lead to autoimmune disease

Top foods to help balance hormones and get rid of menopause symptoms
1) Healthy fats – avocado (high in potassium, magnesium and omega-9 fats)

2) Omega 3 fatty acid – wild-caught salmon and wild-caught fish
3) Grass-Fed beef – full of iron
4) Berries – High in Antioxidants
5) Flaxseeds and Flax Meal – sprouted or chia or hemp (add to a morning smoothie)
6) Coconut Products – balance blood sugar
7) Cruciferous vegetables – broccoli, cabbage, turnips, kale – help to remove phytoestrogens to detox

Supplements for menopause
1) Black Cohosh – http://draxe.com/black-cohosh/
2) Vitex – balance many hormones in body and help female organs
3) Adaptogen Herbs – ginseng, ashwagandha, holy basil
4) Omega-3 – Reduce inflammation
5) Collagen Protein Powder
6) Probiotics – Help digestion – 95% of serotonin is produced in gut
7) Essential Oils – Clary Sage and Thyme – balance hormones
• Ylang Ylang, orange, sandalwood (balance mood)

Lifestyle
1) Reduce stress
2) Detox Bath (epsom salts with essential oils)

10 Tips on Staying Fit Through Menopause – What to Expect & How to Cope.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4iCx5lKpLI
“..Menopause is defined as having no menstrual periods for a year and causes various changes to your body due to reduced production of estrogen and progesterone in your ovaries. The average woman goes through menopause somewhere between the ages of 48-55, but start preparing early since all that you do now can impact how intense the symptoms are and how your body is affected. Outplay and outlast the next chapter of your life by following these 10 quick tips! 1: Focus on your nutrition to help your body keep hormones balanced. Cholesterol is known to spike during the years surrounding your ever approaching menopause therefore eat right by consistently including vegetables and fruit in your diet and ward off recipes and foods high in sodium. 2: Recent studies found that middle aged women who engaged in aerobic exercises four times per week for six months experienced fewer mood swings, reduced night sweats and less irritability compared with those who didn’t. Exercise can be utilized as a relaxation technique during this frazzled time since it’s known to reduce stress chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline. 3: Menopause can be a great stress but it really doesn’t have to be. Find new hobbies, tap into meditation exercises and discover new joys this new phase has to offer. Like…finally not having any more periods?..”

Health: Nutrition-Micronutrients Pt. 4~Vitamins=Trace Minerals

Trace Minerals innerbody.com

“..

The minerals that the body requires in amounts less than 100 milligrams per day are referred to as trace minerals. They are chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Because iron metabolism is the most complicated of the nine, it will be discussed in greater detail.

Iron

Functions:
Carries oxygen throughout the body
Assists in energy metabolism and other enzyme-mediated chemical reactions
Supports immune function
Involved in the production of neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry messages between nerve cells
Participates in the development of the brain and nervous system
Recommended Intakes of Iron: The RDA for men and postmenopausal women is 8 mg. Because of their monthly blood losses, the RDA for premenopausal women jumps to 18 mg. The RDA during pregnancy jumps even more to 27 milligrams to provide adequate iron stores for the infant. If the mother’s iron status is poor, the baby will not have enough stored iron to last the first six months of life.

Chicken livers on a cutting boardSources of Iron: Iron has two types: heme and non-heme. Heme iron is only present in animal flesh. Beef, liver, clams and oysters are excellent sources of iron. Additional sources are poultry, fish and pork. Non-heme iron can be found naturally in tofu, legumes, spinach, raisins, and other plant foods. It is the form of iron used in fortified and enriched foods such as breakfast cereals, bread and pasta. As an excess of iron is highly toxic, the human body tightly regulates the amount of iron it absorbs. Depending on the body’s need for iron, we absorb approximately 15 to 35% of the heme iron we ingest, but significantly less of the non-heme iron. Eating meats including fish and poultry and vitamin C-rich foods enhances the absorption of non-heme iron. Thus, you will absorb more iron from legumes, for example, if when you eat them, you also eat fresh tomatoes or an orange…”

Top 10 Healthy Iron-Rich Foods List

What foods are high in iron? There are many good sources of iron to choose from, but here are some of my favorite healthy foods rich in iron that definitely top the charts:

1. Spirulina: 1 ounce: 8 milligrams of iron (44 percent DV)

Spirulina is a blue-green algae renowned for its intense flavor and even more powerful nutrition profile. Just one ounce almost provides half of typical iron requirements. When it comes to vegetarian, non-heme sources of iron, spirulina is a superstar without a doubt. It’s also rich in essential amino acids, iron, protein, B vitamins, and vitamins C, D and E.

2) Liver: 3 ounces of organic beef liver: 4.05 milligrams of iron (22.5 percent DV)

When it comes to foods with iron, specifically heme iron (the more easily absorbable form), liver definitely tops the list. If you struggle with any type of anemia — a clear sign of an iron deficiency — this is probably the best food to consume in the world because it contains iron as well as folate and vitamin B12. These are the three vitamins and minerals you need in order to overcome anemia naturally.

3) Grass-Fed Beef: One lean grass-fed strip steak (214 grams): 4 milligrams of iron (22 percent DV)

Grass-fed beef is another awesome meat source of heme iron as well as many other key nutrients. It’s definitely one of my personal favorites when it comes to iron-rich foods. In addition to iron, grass-fed beef is also higher in precursors for vitamin A and E, along with cancer-fighting antioxidants, compared to grain-fed beef. (2)

4) Lentils: ½ cup: 3.3 milligrams of iron (20.4 percent DV)

Lentils are legumes that have a really impressive amount of non-heme iron per serving. Aside from their high supply of nutrients, what’s another benefit of including protein-packed lentils in your diet regularly? They’re really cheap and very versatile.

5) Dark Chocolate: 1 ounce: 3.3 milligrams iron (19 percent DV)

When you buy high-quality dark chocolate, you not only satisfy your sweet tooth — you also give your body a significant dose of iron. All you need is one ounce to fulfill almost 20 percent of your daily iron requirements. Now that’s one healthy dessert option!…

‘..When You Get Too Much or Too Little Iron: The UL for males and females aged 14 and above is 45 mg. It is 40 mg for younger individuals. Side effects of too much iron are gastrointestinal and include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and constipation. Accidental overdose of multivitamin/mineral supplements or other iron-containing products is the leading cause of poisoning deaths among young children in the U.S. Immediate emergency medical care is critical because death can occur quickly. In addition to gastrointestinal symptoms, the child may experience rapid heartbeat, dizziness and confusion.

Hemochromatosis is a genetic defect that causes excessive iron absorption. Over time, iron can accumulate in and cause damage to various parts of the body. The result could be diabetes, liver cancer, cirrhosis of the liver and joint problems.

Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency throughout the world. In the U.S., individuals experiencing rapid growth or blood losses are at increased risk for deficiency. These include young children over 6 months of age, adolescents, menstruating women and pregnant women. Because they consume no heme iron, vegetarians are also at increased risk. Iron deficiency results in anemia

Copper Health Benefits

Brain Health
High Copper foods stimulate higher-level thought processes and mental functioning. It has been called a “brain food” because it helps enable certain neural pathways that promote out of the box thinking. A lack of copper during growth may result in incomplete brain and nerve development.

Slows Aging
Copper is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against free radical damage. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and even macular-degeneration.

Energy Maintenance
Copper plays a role in the synthesis of ATP, the primary molecule of energy storage in our bodies. Without adequate copper, the mitochondria (the cell’s energy producer) are unable to adequately produce ATP, leaving us feeling lethargic and tired. Also, copper helps us utilize iron properly, which helps reduce anemia that can also affect energy levels…”

Iodine: Iodine is a component of the thyroid hormones, which regulate metabolic rate and body temperature. Sources of iodine include saltwater fish, liver, legumes, potatoes, iodized salt and dairy products. Iodine deficiency inhibits the synthesis of thyroid hormones resulting in hypothyroidism and it’s typical problems including fatigue, weight gain and intolerance to cold. Inadequate iodine intake is fairly common in some parts of the word and may affect as much as 30% of the world’s population. In recent years, the use of iodized salt has decreased deficiency cases. Under different circumstances, excess iodine can cause either hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. Both too little and too much iodine can cause goiter, an enlargement of the thyroid gland.

Are You Eating Enough Iodine-Rich Foods? draxe.com
“…One of the most widespread symptoms of iodine deficiency? Thyroid disorders. Thyroid function relies on proper levels of iodine, so too much (or too little) can cause many serious health problems. The thyroid is one of the body’s master glands responsible for balancing hormones, and thyroid disruption caused partially by a diet low in iodine-rich foods can create such negative reactions as fatigue, weight gain or loss, hormone imbalances, mood changes, and much more…

Why are more people experiencing iodine deficiency?

Several reasons might be to blame: a reduction in the amount of naturally iodine-rich foods in people’s diets (wild-caught fish, green vegetables and sea vegetables, for example), a higher exposure rate to certain chemicals found in processed foods that reduce iodine absorption (especially the compound called bromine, found in many plastic containers and baked goods, for example), and a depletion in the amount of iodine found in soils…

Here are 12 of the best iodine foods, with percentages below based on the recommended dietary allowance for the average adult: (10)

Seaweed/Dried Kelp — 1 whole sheet dried: 19 to 2,984 micrograms (amounts vary widely — anywhere from 11 percent to 1,989 percent)
Cod (wild-caught) — 3 ounces: 99 micrograms (66 percent DV)

Selenium: Selenium is required for immune function and for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Additionally, this mineral assists enzymes in protecting cell membranes from damage. Depending upon the soil in which they are grown, Brazil nuts are one of the richest sources of selenium. Organ meats, seafood, other meats and whole grains are additional sources. Low selenium intake may decrease an individual’s ability to fight viral infections. Some research also links low intakes to some cancers. Toxicity causes brittle hair and nails and is most likely to occur with supplements.

Zinc: Zinc is critical for normal growth and sexual maturation. It plays a role in the immune system and is important to the proper function of at least 70 enzymes including one that helps protect cells from damage. Oysters, beef and clams are rich sources of absorbable zinc. Whole grains also contain zinc, but it is less available for absorption. Zinc deficiency causes delayed growth and sexual development, decreased immune function, altered sense of taste, hair loss and gastrointestinal distress. Zinc deficiency is uncommon in healthy people in the U.S. It is more common among populations that consume cereals as their primary source of nutrition. Zinc toxicity is rare.”

Delaying frailty and improving functional mobility are primary goals when working with seniors. Functional tests designed for seniors can help identify weaknesses in those areas, hopefully before limitations occur. Following are brief descriptions of six essential functional tests for senior adults that are easy to perform and require very little equipment.

Cardiovascular Testing


Stress testing should be performed by a doctor. Once the doctor has given the written approval with a list of limitations, the trainer must then determine the fitness level of the cardiovascular system by performing fitness testing. Testing should not be performed on clients who have tachycardia. Fitness tests should be performed on an individual basis and not as a group to avoid competitive results.

The Six-Minute Walk Test is used to measure aerobic endurance. The client will walk at their fastest pace around a rectangular track whose length is 50 yards (45.7m) and width is 5 yards (4.6m).,,

Designing Balance Exercise Programs for Older Adults acefitness.org
“..Decreased balance is attributable to an age-related decline in multiple physiological systems that contributes to decreased muscle flexibility and strength, reduced central processing of sensory information, and slowed motor responses (American Geriatrics Society, British Geriatrics Society, and American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon Panel on Falls Prevention, 2001). In addition to an increased risk of falls, diminished balance and mobility may limit activities of daily living or participation in leisure-time activities. Accordingly, it is essential that balance exercises be incorporated into the physical activity programs of older adults. The following article uses case studies to outline the critical components of designing individualized balance exercise programs for clients that reduce their risk of falls. Sample balance exercises and training progressions (from simple to complex) will also be presented…”

FUN EXERCISES FOR SENIORS: WHAT YOU CAN DO WHILE WATCHING TV cedarsofchapelhill.com
“Fun Exercises for Seniors: What you can do while watching TV
Tired of exercise rudely interrupting your binge watching sessions of your favorite TV show? …

Seated Jumping-Jacks

While traditional jumping jacks are possible while watching TV, they can also be a bit hard on your joints. Instead, do a seated version by sitting on the edge of your chair and lifting your arms up and open wide while also spreading your legs apart. Do a set of 10 of these as quickly as possible, rest and repeat. This will keep your limbs moving and circulating.

Leg Extensions

To do a proper leg extension, simply sit in your chair, extend one leg out and flex your foot so only your heel touches the floor, then raise your leg as high as you can without rounding your back. Hold this for a count of three, lower your leg, repeat or alternate with your other leg.

Use Your Water Bottle

The most obvious use for a water bottle (other than drinking from it, of course) is using it as a hand weight, however it can also be used to strengthen your thighs. To do this, simply sit on your chair with your back straight and shoulders back. Plant your feet on the floor, with your ankles in line with your knees. Now, place a water bottle between your legs and squeeze your thighs around it 30 times. It may not sound like much at first, but when you try it you’ll feel how your thigh muscles will work during this.

Bonus: Do this while also doing the arm exercises listed below.

Elbow Curls

This exercise will help stretch your chest and shoulder muscles and help decrease upper back pain and stress. Simply place your hands on either side of your head with your elbows pointed out then bring your elbows together in front of your face then pull them back to the starting position, repeat up to 30 times.

Arm Circles

It doesn’t get much simpler than this, but if you haven’t exercised in a while, this could be a beneficial way to flex muscles you forgot you even had. For this, simply sit on the edge of your seat and extend your arms out at your side at shoulder height. Move your arms in small circles 20 times going forward and 20 times going back before resting.

Create a Routine Around the Program You’re Watching

A simple way to get yourself moving is to plan on moving around during the commercials (no fair DVRing something and fast forwarding the commercials!). Instead of using this time to grab a snack, stand up and march or walk in place.

You can also create a routine based on the individual show. For example, whenever a certain character comes on screen make sure you do at least one exercise from this list or even just simply stretch your arms above your head or stretch your legs out to keep your joints from stiffening.

Treadmill

Not the most creative exercise on this list, but it is effective and something most people can do no matter what their level of physical fitness is. If you can’t put a treadmill in front of your current television, consider getting a treadmill with a screen already attached. Yes, these exist now and are making it even harder for many people to make excuses for not working out.

Already have a treadmill and you’re not willing to take up living room space with it? Simple, get a TV for the room where you’re treadmill is. While no fitness trainer is likely to encourage you to get more televisions, if the options are not working out at all, or working out with a TV in your home gym, then this is clearly the better plan.

To find more exercise ideas for seniors, read our article Exercise for People Who Hate Exercise.

Looking for a retirement community where you can enjoy television and exercise in your own home while also having plenty of options for social and aerobic activities? The Cedars of Chapel Hill, North Carolina offers a fitness center complete with treadmills, indoor pool and, of course, television. Visit their website to learn about life at The Cedars.

Slowly transfer your weight onto the front leg until you feel the stretch in the calf of the back leg. Hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat 2-3 times per side. You can also slightly bend the back knee to affect a different portion of posterior calf muscles.

What is the proper anatomical term for the top of your foot?
March 18, 2007 10:27 AM ask.metafilter.com
“..I see that the top of the foot is considered as dorsal in human anatomy. At first I would have thought, for consistency, that the top of the foot would be called ventral and the sole dorsal as in a person lying face down. But when you get beyond the wrist, dorsal and ventral are replaced by dorsal and palmar, the terms referring to the palm and back of the hand. Likewise for the foot the terms refer to the plantar (sole) and dorsal (top). This makes some sense in mechanical terms since when you are walking on all fours, the back the hand and top of the foot are folded and point dorsally. I wonder how these surfaces are oriented in view of ontogeny. Would the sole and palm be dorsal?..”

“..How are seizures classified now?

There are now 3 major groups of seizures.

Generalized onset seizures: These seizures affect both sides of the brain or groups of cells on both sides of the brain at the same time. This term was used before and still includes seizures types like tonic-clonic, absence, or atonic to name a few.
Focal onset seizures: The term focal is used instead of partial to be more accurate when talking about where seizures begin. Focal seizures can start in one area or group of cells in one side of the brain.
Focal Onset Aware Seizures: When a person is awake and aware during a seizure, it’s called a focal aware seizure. This used to be called a simple partial seizure.
Focal Onset Impaired Awareness: When a person is confused or their awareness is affected in some way during a focal seizure, it’s called a focal impaired awareness seizure. This used to be called a complex partial seizure.
Unknown onset seizures: When the beginning of a seizure is not known, it’s now called an unknown onset seizure. A seizure could also be called an unknown onset if it’s not witnessed or seen by anyone, for example when seizures happen at night or in a person who lives alone.

Causes of epilepsy
nhs.uk

In over half of epilepsy cases, a cause cannot be found. If there is an identifiable cause, it usually involves the brain being affected by a condition.

The brain is a delicate mix of nerve cells, electrical impulses and chemicals, known as neurotransmitters. Any damage has the potential to disrupt the workings of the brain and cause seizures.

There are two main categories of epilepsy:

idiopathic (or primary) epilepsy – where no apparent cause for epilepsy can be found, but there may be a family history, suggesting that the condition is inherited
symptomatic (or secondary) epilepsy – where there is a known cause for a person’s epilepsy ..”

What Causes Epilepsy in Children?
Source: Society for Neuroscience
brainfacts.org
“.. For example, sometimes brain damage due to trauma, such as lack of oxygen to the brain at birth or a severe brain infection, can lead to epilepsy.

“Children that are born prematurely or have very difficult births can have brain injuries that cause seizures during the first weeks of life,” says Paul Carney, a pediatric neurologist at the University of Florida. “The good news is that a lot of these children that have mild brain injury will outgrow their seizures in the first month. However, a small percentage will unfortunately go on to develop difficult-to-treat seizures that can be lifelong.”

Another cause of pediatric epilepsy is abnormal development of the brain, possibly due to maternal exposure to toxins, trauma, or an underlying genetic condition. When a genetic problem affects how the brain is formed or functions, seizures may be a visible indicator of other problems. “Seizures can be the tip of the iceberg of a serious brain disorder,” Baram says.

However, sometimes the cause of pediatric seizures is unknown. Because there is no one cause of pediatric epilepsy, there is no single prognosis. In general, 50 to 75 percent of children with epilepsy will eventually have complete seizure remission. Remission is more likely if there are no underlying neurological deficits present, seizure frequency is low, and response to anti-seizure medication is good…”

“..Patty McGoldrick NP, MPA: So what causes epilepsy? There’s a bunch of different things that can cause epilepsy. The simpler things are things like strokes, bleeding in the brain, parts of the brain that have formed abnormally, accidents, trauma. There are also idiopathic epilepsies, where we don’t know what they’re caused by. We’re doing a lot of genetic research into epilepsy to find out what causes certain syndromes of epilepsy.

Steve Wolf MD: Now you mentioned the brain not developing properly, and sometimes we use the word “cortical dysplasia” or “migration defects.” This is when the brain, when it’s forming inside the mother’s belly, that the brain just doesn’t form properly and leaves an island of abnormal cells that can cause short circuits…”

“…Vitamin B-6

Vitamin B-6 is used to treat a rare form of epilepsy known as pyridoxine-dependent seizures. This type of epilepsy usually develops in the womb or soon after birth. It’s caused by your body’s inability to metabolize vitamin B-6 properly.

Although the evidence is promising, more research is need to determine whether vitamin B-6 supplementation benefits people with other types of epilepsy.
Magnesium

Severe magnesium deficiency may increase seizure risk. Older research suggests magnesium supplementation may reduce seizures. A 2012 hypothesis published in Epilepsy Research supports this theory. Researchers indicate that randomized, controlled trials are needed to better understand magnesium’s potential effects on epilepsy.

Vitamin E

Some people with epilepsy may also have a vitamin E deficiency. A 2016 study found that vitamin E increases antioxidant abilities. This research also suggested it helps decrease seizures in people with epilepsy whose symptoms aren’t controlled by conventional drugs. The study concluded vitamin E may be safe to take with traditional medicines for epilepsy. More research is needed, however.
Other vitamins

Medication used to treat epilepsy may also cause biotin or vitamin D deficiency, and worsen your symptoms. In these cases, your doctor may recommend vitamins to help manage your condition…

3. Dietary changes

..It’s considered a low-carb, low-protein diet. This sort of eating pattern is thought to help decrease seizures, although doctors don’t know exactly why…

Despite their potential, natural treatments still pose risks. This is especially the case with herbs and vitamins, as they can interact with medications. Some supplements can even be as powerful as conventional drugs. Be sure to consult your doctor before adding any herbs or supplements to your regimen..

Natural Approaches For Treating Epilepsy Written by Thomas Corriher Category: Report Published: January 28, 2010 healthwyze.org
“…The Causes and Cures of Epilepsy

Epileptic seizures can be triggered by many additives that are in processed foods. Aspartame is known to induce seizures. Two main constituents of aspartame include phenylalanine and aspartic acid. Aspartic acid is an excitotoxin, which means that it over-excites nerves, causing them to literally burn-out and die. Phenylalanine is a known neurotoxin, so aspartame should be avoided by all individuals. Beware whenever you see “sugar-free” on a package.

Zinc deficiency has been shown to cause seizures. A study that was published in 1990, entitled, Effects of dietary zinc status on seizure susceptibility and hippocampal zinc content in the El (epilepsy) mouse, showed that zinc deficiency caused seizures, and this could be quickly corrected with adequate zinc supplementation. Many epilepsy sufferers have noted significant improvements in their condition with zinc intake.

Magnesium is a vital component of epilepsy recovery, and many believe that magnesium deficiency is the root cause of epileptic seizures. Lots of people choose to supplement with magnesium using Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate). While this is an option, impurities may be present in Epsom salt, because it is not meant for oral consumption. Some companies are dedicated to selling completely pure food grade Epsom salt. We cannot attest to the integrity of any of these companies. If Epsom salt is used, then the ideal dosage is about 1/2 a teaspoon each morning. Otherwise, magnesium supplements are available from health food stores. Food sources of magnesium include almonds, cashews, peanuts, halibut fish, and spinach. Studies have verified a link between magnesium deficiency and epilepsy. However, excessive supplementation with magnesium will cause other important minerals to flush out of the body to ironically cause even more nutritional deficiencies. So, the wisest approach is to fix the nutritional problems with diet, if possible…

Radiation from sources such as the new generation of high-frequency televisions, energy efficient lights, microwaves, video game systems, radio towers, and cellular towers can trigger severe seizures.”

Most Natural Prevention Strategies Cut Your Risk in Half
“..
What’s most important, however, is Dr. Horner’s discovery that most of the lifestyle strategies that have been scientifically tested have the ability to cut your risk of cancer by about 50 percent; sometimes more. And yet virtually no one in conventional medicine talks about and shares such findings with their patients. Why? For example, turmeric can slash your risk by about half, while optimizing your vitamin D levels has been shown to cut breast cancer incidence by 77 percent1 in four years!

Of course, other lifestyle factors are also important in preventing cancer, such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, and managing stress. However, vitamin D’s critical importance seems to grow with every emerging study. Carole Baggerly, founder director of GrassrootsHealth—an organization dedicated to increasing awareness about vitamin D and the crucial role it plays in health—believes that as much as 90 percent of ordinary breast cancer is related to vitamin D deficiency, which is 100 percent preventable!

Despite its name, vitamin D is actually a powerful neuro-regulatory steroid with epigenetic influence over more than 2,000 genes in your body. That’s about 10 percent of all your genes. There are more than 830 peer reviewed scientific studies showing vitamin D’s effectiveness in the treatment of cancer, and personally, I believe it is virtually malpractice to not optimize vitamin D levels when treating someone with cancer. In this case, your vitamin D levels should be around 70-100 ng/ml. For more information about optimizing your vitamin D levels, please see my previous article Test Values and Treatment for Vitamin D Deficiency. …”
Breast Cancer
“…Dr. Weil recommends that all women diagnosed with breast cancer seek treatment with a qualified and experienced breast surgeon, oncologist and radiation specialist. However, he emphasizes the need for the following lifestyle measures to reduce the risks of developing breast cancer in the first place and to help prevent recurrences after treatment:

Maintain a healthy weight. Weight gain after age 18 to between the ages of 50 and 60, has been consistently associated with risk of breast cancer after menopause. When the ovaries stop producing hormones after menopause, fat cells produce most of the estrogen in the female body. The more fat tissue in a woman’s body, the higher her estrogen levels are likely to be, and the higher her risk of breast cancer.
Exercise. Regular physical activity can reduce the risks, possibly because it can lead to weight loss and decrease the amount of body fat, thereby reducing exposure to circulating estrogens produced by fat that could foster development of the disease.
Reduce exposure to xenoestrogens. A large number of synthetic chemical compounds that we all encounter have estrogen-like activity. Among them: common pesticides, industrial pollutants and hormone residues in meat, poultry and dairy products. While evidence linking these hormones to breast cancer is conflicting, Dr. Weil recommends limiting exposure as much as possible. Choosing hormone-free dairy and animal products and organic produce is a good start.
Avoid alcohol. A study reported in the November 2011 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that the more a woman drinks, the higher her breast cancer risk. Data from a study including 108,986 nurses who were followed from 1980 to 2008 showed that having two or more alcoholic drinks daily increased a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 1.5 times compared to women who never drank alcohol; for women who had one alcoholic drink per day, the risk was about 1.2 times higher than normal. Alcohol is believed to increase a woman’s risk because it increases levels of estrogen and other hormones associated with hormone receptor positive breast cancer.
Avoid long-term hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study of hormone replacement therapy that was halted ahead of schedule in 2004 showed an increased risk of breast cancer among women who took HRT, a combination of estrogen and progestin to slow post-menopausal bone loss and relieve menopausal symptoms. Follow up studies have shown that this increased risk continues for about 11 years after women stop taking the hormones. However, when the WHI study was stopped, women who were taking estrogen alone had a 23 percent reduced risk of breast cancer compared to those who took a placebo. Since then, studies have shown that the lower risk persisted for at least five years. (Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) alone should only be prescribed for women who have had a hysterectomy – it presents a risk of endometrial cancer for women who still have a uterus. Adding progestin lowers this risk.) Until there are definitive data suggesting otherwise, Dr. Weil continues to recommend limiting use of HRT…

As scientists continue to explore the impact of different foods on the risk of breast cancer, people are generally advised to cut down on alcohol, added sugar, fat, and red meat.

Alcohol

Studies have identified a link between regular alcohol consumption and an increased risk of breast cancer. Breastcancer.org report that alcohol may increase estrogen levels and cause damage to DNA cells. They also note that women who drink three alcoholic beverages per week increase their risk of developing breast cancer by 15 percent. The risk goes up by around 10 percent with each additional drink per day.

Sugar

Researchers at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have found that when mice eat a diet as rich in sugar as the typical American diet, they are more likely to develop mammary gland tumors, similar to breast cancer in humans. In addition, these tumors are more likely to spread, or metastasize.

Fat…

Trans fats have now been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer and should be avoided. Trans fats are most commonly found in processed food such as fried foods, some crackers, donuts, and packaged cookies or pastries.

Somers also advises to get enough sleep…”

HEALING

Breast Cancer Healed without Surgery or Drugs
Dory Nissen – 700 Club Producer cbn.com
“…Overwhelmed and frightened, Venus prayed. “And the fear would grip you. I mean, sometimes I’d just be on my face. Just crying like, ‘what is happening?’ you know. I mean, I was so scared. But I had to get over the fear because I wanted to live.”

Doctors advised her to have surgery and start chemo. But Venus declined; instead, she relied on God’s healing power. “I knew right away I was not going to have a double mastectomy. I knew I was not going to have chemo. I knew right away. It was just put on my heart.”

She started a regimen of healthy eating and exercise. Friends and family had mixed reactions. People were excited. I think they wanted to see somebody do this and not do it with chemo, radiation, and surgery. They wanted to see someone not get sick before they got better. Then there were people who were afraid. I’ve had people actually yell at me; really yell at me on the phone. And tell me I was crazy, ‘what are you doing?’ And I said, ‘I know I’m doing the right thing. I know. With all my heart I know.’”

Venus prayed for healing… sometimes for hours at a time. “I stood on the Word. I took the Bible literally that says, ‘by His stripes you were healed.’ I kept saying, ‘well, if He said that and we believe this Book, then it has to be true!’”

After two years Venus received some great news. “I got a blood test and there was no cancer in my body. I just wanted to praise God. That’s all I wanted to do, just praise God. Just like wow, ‘thank you. When You went to calvary, when You shed your blood, it was for me.’ And I believed it. And He was showing me every minute, every day. And I was so happy I could tell people, ‘I’m okay.’”

Venus has a special message for anyone battling cancer.

“When disease comes onto your body, remember that Jesus is the Healer. Everything else can be a bonus, but Jesus is the healer.”

Sudden Healing- Late End Stage Metastatic Cancer Miracle-Oncologist Speaks Out-All God.wmv


“Published on Jan 20, 2013

This video journal features world-renowned cancer surgeon/oncologist and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology at one of the leading hospitals in the U.S. It is a testimony to the power of prayer and God’s faithfulness. It details the course of treatment, seven different types of chemotherapy including one clinical trial. I was diagnosed in 1996 with advanced stage ovarian cancer. After years of recurrences, surgeries, and chemotherapy, I was healed. This video briefly touches on my physical healing, but my story is one of spiritual healing and restoration. The spiritual healing and restoration was even more dramatic than the physical healing. As promised in Romans 8:28, God DOES use all things. ( If you have questions for me, feel free to post them here; I would love to pray with you and for you.) Expiration dates given by earthly physicians don’t mean much. Jesus Christ is the Great Physician. My goal with this site is to encourage those who have been diagnosed with late stage or metastatic cancer. In order to avoid those who seek out innocent people to steal identity, I have chosen not to use my name. As said, I was diagnosed in 1996 with ovarian cancer. I had eight recurrences in seven organs. I took seven different types of chemotherapy, year after year, for 10 years. Suffice it, I believe in prayer. I truly believe my healing was all God. I would love to talk to people who are going through what I did. Please understand that I only wish to hear from persons who are sincerely looking for answers. Persons who are looking to profit somehow from this information probably need not contact me. Blessings to each of you on your journey.”
Healed from Cancer through the Power of Jesus

“…Here is the prayer for cancer sick people and how to minister:

Bind and cast out the spirit of cancer.
Curse the seed, root and cells of the cancer.
Lay hands on the affected area, commanding every cancer cell in the body to die.
Command the bone marrow to produce pure, healthy blood.
Command healing to all organs and tissues affected and restoration of parts where necessary.
Command the body’s defensive “killer” cells to multiply and attack all cancer cells.

(Taken from the Handbook for Healing by Charles and Frances Hunter, Whitaker House, page 175)

Love in Christ,

Ursula”
