7 Ayurvedic Herbs that Destroy Colon & Other Cancers Fast. Numerous Ayurvedic texts speak of ways to treat cancers of the colon and digestive system.

7 Ayurvedic Herbs that Destroy Colon & Other Cancers Fast

Two texts which were written around 700 BC are classic wisdom from the sister science of yoga – the Charakaand Sushruta Samhita. Both are suggested as being an imbalance in one of the doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) which describe general physiological states in people throughout the world. Once the doshas are returned to balance, then cancer and other diseases disappear from the body. The following 7 herbs are used in Ayurveda to bring balance to the doshas, helping to minimize or completely eradicate colon cancer. 1. Colon. Body Hydration - Hydration & Dehydration. Should the importance of hydration dawn on an individual to such an extent that he actually decides to attempt it – the 2 litres per day recommended in the 60 Day Program – here are some likely expectations: It stands to reason that the chronically dehydrated human body cannot recover in one day, no matter how much water is imbibed.

Body Hydration - Hydration & Dehydration

The cells will simply resist it, bereft of hydration for so long, unaccustomed to normal absorption. Think of a parched desert arroyo, suddenly flooded over from a deluge of stormy weather. What happens? Flash flood. For someone beginning hydration as part of the 60 Day Program, the 2-litre goal may be difficult to achieve during the first week. Once it becomes comfortable to actually drink 2 litres each day, the challenge then becomes maintaining it day after day. After the second week, an odd thing happens: one experiences occasional dry mouth and thirst even though he’s taking in an unprecedented amount of water.

Cancer-Spotting Yogurt May Offer a Cheap, Simple Test

The lines indicate the presence of such biomarkers in urine. A spoonful of yogurt could soon offer a cheap and simple way to screen for colorectal cancer. Sangeeta Bhatia, a professor at MIT, is working to replace costly and uncomfortable colonoscopies and MRIs with a helping of yogurt followed by a urine test—a cheap method that could improve the early diagnosis of colorectal cancer.

Bhatia is developing synthetic molecules that can be introduced into the body via yogurt, and will interact with cancer in a way that produces telltale biomarkers. These molecules can then be detected easily when passed in urine. Bhatia previously developed nanoparticles that find their way to tumors, and are then broken into smaller pieces by enzymes produced by the cancer.

If detected early, 90 percent of people with colorectal cancer survive for at least five years. The Blog of Mystica. Converting genetic activity into music may be a way to monitor health.

The Blog of Mystica

When set to music, colon cancer sounds kind of eerie. That’s the finding of Gil Alterovitz, a research fellow at Harvard Medical School who is developing a computer program that translates protein and gene expression into music. In his acoustic translation, harmony represents good health, and discord indicates disease.

At any given time in each of our cells, thousands of genes are churning out their molecular products while thousands more lie senescent. The profile of which genes are on versus off is constantly changing–with specific diseases such as cancer, for example. Biochemical Individuality and Nutrition. By Bill Walsh, Ph.D. - Pfeiffer Treatment Center Introduction Each of us has innate biochemical factors which influence personality, behavior, mental health, immune function, allergic tendencies, etc.

Biochemical Individuality and Nutrition

Scientists tell us that the number of different genetic combinations possible in a child from the same two parents exceeds 42 million. It's interesting to note that we do not possess a combination of characteristics from our parents, but instead have a diverse collection of characteristics from many ancestors on both sides of the family. Except for identical twins, each human being has unique biochemistry resulting in quite diverse nutritional needs. Because of genetic differences in the way our bodies process foods, most of us are quite deficient in certain nutrients and overloaded in others. I am amused by supplement manufacturers who attempt to develop the ideal combination of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids for the general population. Nutrients and Mental Health.

University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ: News/Events. STRATFORD, N.J. -- An international team of scientists led by Gary Goldberg, PhD, of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Osteopathic Medicine (UMDNJ-SOM), has found that a protein from the seeds of a plant used for centuries in traditional medicines may be able to halt the spread of melanoma, a lethal form of skin cancer.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that melanoma will cause more than 9,000 deaths in the United States this year. On average, melanoma kills one person nearly every hour in the USA, and many more in other countries. Previously published research prompted Dr. Goldberg's team to examine a protein extracted from the seeds of a legume tree -- Maackia amurensis -- that is native to parts of Asia. References to this tree being used medicinally can be found in ancient Chinese documents that date back more than 400 years.

What Makes Cancer Grow. Every person has cancer cells in their body.

What Makes Cancer Grow

These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached detectable size. When the person’s immune system is strong, the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing the diet to plant based will strengthen the immune system. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract, etc., and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidney, heart and lungs, and so on.
