AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. 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 the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growinghealthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

LIFE and Leadership by Chris Brady

The Impetus Behind the Life Business

There is something really right about a business that allows people to get started for a relatively small amount of money, work at their own pace, be their own boss, experience the responsibilities of business ownership in an actual business endeavor without huge downside risks, have the potential for high upsides, and get the tax advantages that come with business enterprise. These attributes (and others) are what originally attracted me to the profession of networking. However, as I experienced more and more of what goes on in certain parts of this industry, I quickly realized there were several things I hated about it!

I was not alone. Along with my friends Orrin Woodward, Tim Marks, Bill Lewis, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, and Dan Hawkins, we founded the LIFE company in an attempt to build a business to not only…

God’s Wisdom

18 Feb

Read: 1 Corinthians 2:1-16
There are a lot of people searching for ‘human wisdom’. Whether it is through the education system or human philosophy. Whatever it may be, it’s all foolishness in God’s eyes, as 1 Corinthians 3:18-20 says. That’s not to say we don’t bother with education, but just to recognize that Godly wisdom is more desirable. What should we be running after, and desiring above all else? Proverbs 8:10-11 speaks of God’s Wisdom being better than rubies or pearls, and there is nothing to be compared. You cannot learn Godly wisdom in a University and get a degree in it. It can only come to a heart in right relationship with God, and seeking it. The Holy Spirit that dwells within us leads us into all truth. “For the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels, and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny].” (V:10).
There were two things that were impressed upon me as a new Christian. The first was that the word of God, His teachings, is spiritually discerned. A person cannot possibly understand spiritual truths, unless they have the Holy Spirit within, teaching them the hidden meanings, (1 Cor.2:13-14). The human mind, no matter how intelligent cannot comprehend spiritual truths.
The second thing that was impressed upon me was that God raises up what the world considers foolish to shame the wise 1 Cor.1:25-28. This really stood out for me, as I was what the world would have considered foolish, not being well educated. But God chose me, and He chose you too. He can fill us with His wisdom and put worldly wisdom to shame. Let us desire and run after Godly wisdom. By doing so we will never be disappointed.

For it is written, I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify [them] and bring [them] to nothing. Where is the wise man (the philosopher)? Where is the scribe( the scholar)? Where is the investigator (the logician, the debater) of this present time and age? Has not God shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world’s wisdom? ~ 1 Corinthians 1:19-20

Lord, your wisdom, I desire More than costly jewels Fill me with your Godly wisdom So I may do your will.

Wellness Philosophy

18 Feb

dōTERRA™ Essential Wellness is a company founded on a wellness philosophy of healthy lifestyle choices and informed proactive participation in one’s own healthcare alternatives. dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils and other wellness products are specifically formulated to support a wellness philosophy of eating right, exercising, resting and managing stress, and reducing toxic load. dōTERRA also teaches informed self care alternatives and encourages people to take a proactive role in their medical care. Our mission as a company is to teach people to live more healthy, productive lives and to share with others the blessing of a lifetime of wellness.

Wellness Philosophy Diagram

Eating Right

Eating right is a matter of quality and quantity. Our diets should be rich in foods with an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. A healthy diet also includes low-fat sources of protein, moderate amounts of complex carbohydrates, and limited fats. Eating right means choosing fresh, whole, unprocessed foods and avoiding foods that are over processed and contain high levels of simple sugars and saturated fats. The dōTERRA philosophy of eating right also includes the daily consumption of dietary supplements to ensure optimal levels of key nutrients that are essential for longevity and wellness.

Exercising

Regular, moderate exercise is essential for optimal physical and emotional wellness. Coupled with eating right, regular exercise can help one maintain healthy body weight and composition. Healthy activity begins with taking the stairs, walking to lunch, and generally having a “mentality of movement.” A more complete exercise program includes aerobic activity, flexibility exercise, and strength training.

Rest and Manage Stress

Living healthy includes appropriate time for rest and relaxation. Regular sleep is an often skipped, but essential practice for optimal health. Managing stress is also important to maintaining good health. When we do not allow our bodies appropriate time for rest and regeneration, we can compromise our immune defenses and may become more prone to infection and disease. Chronic stress remains a significant health threat and has been tied to numerous degenerative conditions.

Reduce Toxic Load

In spite of our best efforts to practice good wellness habits, we can be exposed to toxic environmental stressors that can have deleterious effects on our health. Common toxic stressors include overexposure to UV rays, toxic ingredients in products throughout our homes, and chemical pollutants in our air and water. Being aware of these toxic threats to our health and choosing products that provide protection and peace of mind from such toxins are also important to optimal wellness.

Informed Self Care

When we experience sub-optimal heath conditions, there are many self-care alternatives that can provide safe and effective relief of symptoms and long-term solutions to problems. Reaching for a prescription or over-the-counter drug may not always be the best first alternative to taking care of one’s self when sick. dōTERRA’s therapeutic-grade essential oils and other wellness products are formulated to support the body’s own natural ability to keep itself healthy and can be used effectively in combination with traditional and alternative medical practices. (dōTERRA’s wellness products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.)

Proactive Medical Care

When a person is suffering from acute sickness or has been diagnosed with a disease, it is important they seek out competent and qualified medical
professionals for immediate help. It is also important they take a proactive role in their personal course of treatment by learning as much as they can about their health challenge and choosing a physician who will both inform and be open to information.

Following these healthy practices of eating right, exercising, resting and managing stress, reducing toxic load, practicing informed self care, and taking a proactive role in one’s medical care, coupled with the regular use of dōTERRA’s essential wellness products will help one live a healthier, longer life.

ESSENTIAL OIL QUALITY GRADES

18 Feb

There are a growing number of products claiming to be or to contain essential oils. They range in price and quality and are found in skin care, cosmetics, aromatherapy, and other products. However, many of these products do not use 100% pure essential oils and often use fragrant synthetic chemical substitutes to dilute or replace more expensive essential oil extracts. Furthermore, there are no current regulatory standards for the descriptive use of the “therapeutic grade” for products labeled as essential oils.

The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®* mark represents dōTERRA’s own internal standards for sourcing and testing 100% pure aromatic botanical extracts using independent testing laboratories. The dōTERRA brand and registered CPTG mark represent dōTERRA’s guarantee of 100% pure essential oil extracts that meet high standards for both purity and material composition and accurate product labeling.

                       

dōTERRA’s therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities. Proper extraction and quality control methods also ensure that dōTERRA’s essential oils are free of any contaminants such as pesticides or other chemical residues. In addition to being 100% pure and natural, dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are subjected to further quality testing that ensures the correct composition of the active natural compounds found in each oil. Even though an essential oil may be 100% pure, if the right species or part of a plant has not been used, or if the plant has not been grown in the right environment or harvested at the right time, or if it has not been distilled under the right conditions, the natural chemical makeup of the extraction will not provide as predictable and powerful a benefit. In some cases, the wrong plant harvested at the wrong time may result in an extract that contains harmful levels of some constituents.

dōTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils are guaranteed to be 100% pure and natural and free of synthetic compounds or contaminates. They are subjected to rigorous mass spectrometry and gas chromatography testing to ensure extract composition and activity. dōTERRA’s 100% pure essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial essential oils available today.

(Try this at home: Compare the smell of dōTERRA’s 100% lavender essential oil to another lavender oil or product in your home. If your product’s fragrance is overbearing in any one note it may contain synthetic chemical substitutes. A 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oil should have a balanced, broad fragrance profile and should smell crystal clean. Now, compare the feel of your product to dōTERRA’s essential oil. A pure essential oil should not feel slick or oily but rather absorb cleanly and completely into your skin.)

PUTTING ESSENTIAL OILS TO THE TEST

18 Feb

                                 PUTTING ESSENTIAL OILS TO THE TEST –

                     THE SCIENCE AND THE APPLICATION

                        COLD AND FLU SEASON IS HERE – ARE YOU PREPARED TO FIGHT?

                       

While at convention last week, we had the opportunity to learn more about the Oklahoma University study on On Guard. I have referenced this study in the past, but it is now published and available for review at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21078173.

This study suggests and supports the powerful antiviral effects of On Guard. The study concluded that this essential oil blend significantly (90%) attenuates influenza virus PR8, suggesting that the antiviral effect may be due to “inhibition of viral protein translation.”

Despite antibiotics not being able to treat the influenza virus, results show On Guard Protective Blend reducing this virus by up to 90% . The single oils contained in this blend are: Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to put this to the test, in a practical application. My son attended nursery during Sunday School, at church last Sunday. As often occurs in a day care setting, he contracted a virus, which first presented about 40 hours later. At around 9AM Tuesday morning, it was as though someone flipped a light switch. He went from a bouncing, happy, two year old, to a very sick little boy. He was crying that he hurt, had a fever, and his eyes had that red, glazed sick appearance.

I know how important it is to act quickly when it comes to viral duplication. Here’s why: When something extreme happens in our body to upset our homeostasis, i.e. we don’t get enough sleep, toxic overload, too much white sugar, extreme stress, traveling, work and school deadlines, etc, our immune system is weakened and our bodies allow a virus to attach onto a cell.

The virus then injects the virus DNA into that cell and the newly infected cell begins to duplicate. Fast. It creates thousands of “copy” virus cells, and as a result we get sick. Our body then has to work overtime to kill and clear out all the infected cells.

The study done by the University of Oklahoma suggests that the oil “OnGuard” was 90% effective against stopping an infected virus cell from duplicating. In other words, if you start treating a virus with OnGuard as soon as you start to feel it coming on, you will slow or prevent the duplication of the viral cell. Fewer viral cells mean that either you don’t get sick (that’s optimal) or your body makes way fewer copies of the virus cell, thus making it easier to kill the fewer amount of sick cells and helping you get over the sickness quickly.

It’s important to note here that there is a window. If you catch it early (before your body makes tons of copy cells) then you’ll prevent the worst. If you miss the window and your body has already made thousands and thousands of virus cell copies, you’re probably going to go through the 5-10 days of cleaning out the sick cells.

With my two year old, I started working with the oils immediately. I put On Guard in the diffuser. I applied On Guard to the bottom of his feet every 2-3 hours. I applied Melaleuca to his spine. I made a little syrup with agave and some lemon with a TINY amount of On Guard. He didn’t like it, but we got one spoonful in him. We gave him a warm bath with Melaleuca and Lavender bath salts.

By dinnertime, he was already showing signs of improvement. He stopped crying and complaining of “pain.” His energy returned. By this morning, he was back to normal. Less than 24 hours! That is amazing. Essential oils really do have the power to kill viruses. They are SAFE! They are NATURAL! They are EFFECTIVE! I absolutely know that in my home we have either averted illness completely, or reduced the duration and degree of symptoms, thanks to our essential oils. I have witnessed it over and over again. And, now science is supporting what we already know. Essential oils are the best tool in my medicine chest, and the only tool that really helps fight viruses! Are you prepared?

WHAT BENEFITS DO CERTIFIED PURE, THERAPEUTIC-GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS PROVIDE?

18 Feb
  • Essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune defense properties of plants.
  • Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin.
  • Essential oils are lipid soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they have hardened because of oxygen deficiency. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and then be metabolized like other nutrients.
  • Essential oils contain oxygen molecules which help to transport nutrients to the starving human cells. By providing the needed oxygen, essential oils also work to stimulate the immune system.
  • Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals. They prevent mutations, work as free radical scavengers, prevent fungus, and prevent oxidation in the cells.
  • Essential oils are antibacterial, anticancer, antifungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antitumor, antiparasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic. They have been proven to destroy all tested bacteria and viruses.
  • Essential oils may detoxify the cells and blood in the body.
  • Essential oils containing sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood brain barrier, enabling them to be effective in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.
  • When diffused, essential oils remove metallic particles and toxins from the air; increase atmospheric oxygen; increase ozone and negative ions in the area, which inhibits bacterial growth; destroys odors from mold, cigarettes, and animals; and fills air with fresh aromatic scent.
  • Essential Oils promote emotional, physical and spiritual healing.” (Modern Essentials, 2nd edition)
