Alternative Cancer Treatments – Several months ago I reviewed a new book called Radical Remission of Cancer by Dr Kelly Turner.

The author discovered nine common factors in cancer survivors, after interviewing hundreds of survivors plus many alternative cancer healers. Click on the colored words to see the nine common factors.

I shared this info with a friend of mine, Karen Larre, and she has recently interviewed Dr Turner and reported this interview in her health magazine called Truly Alive. The link will take several seconds to come up.

It’s an impressive interview, and below I list several excerpts that I found significant. Most of these are statements by Dr Turner. You can read the full interview in the link to the magazine.… More

Anxiety treatment – An Astonishing Alternative – About three years ago, I had an atrial fibrillation (AFib) while in California. My heart rate was 120 beats per minute for two days and a night. I knew this was dangerous, as it can induce stroke. I flew back to ABQ to see my heart doctor. He checked my vitals, did a running EKG, and gave me a scrip to counteract the symptoms. Also told me to keep away from caffeine and stress. Ha! The caffeine I could do without, but the stress…..? The full story of my stress-anxiety challenge is below as a Post-Script, which is optional reading. So I will cut here to what happened last night…….… More

Integrative Medicine – I have come to respect Dr Andrew Weil. From reading his book Spontaneous Happiness, to seeing him discuss natural remedies for the heart and the lungs on TV with Dr Oz. Thirdly, he has published a pyramid of anti-inflammatory foods that I have just discovered. According to Dr Weil “Following an anti-inflammatory diet can help counteract the chronic inflammation that is a root cause of many serious diseases, including those that become more frequent as people age.” If you right-click on the image, you can then hit print to print it out.

Dr Weil gave a lecture in the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe this week. The architecture is beautiful in this old theater situated not far from the plaza.… More

So many people have cancer…..something like 1 in 3 in the USA……we all know someone close to us who has contracted it. Yet biomedical scientists have been searching for a cure for 50 years. A conventional treatment often consists of chemotherapy plus radiation, both of which are toxic (poisons) and kill good cells as well as bad cells. This can be a real dilemma to a cancer patient who faces sickness and hair loss and energy depletion while on this regimen, which can last for weeks.

Along comes a new book that arose from interviews with many cancer patients who weren’t expected to live…..but their cancers had radical remission. The book presents behaviors and factors common to these cancer patients. Nine factors are identified, and there are some surprises!… More

I asked Shanessa’s daughter, who is 17, what are the secrets to greater happiness. She gave me a quick list: • More freedom. My parents are too strict. • More friends ‘liking’ my posts on Facebook. • Live more like the models and superstars in the checkout mags and on TV. • Date more often. • Nicer car. • More movies and less schoolwork. • An iPad.

At the other end of the age spectrum, I asked a heart doctor, who is probably 70 and jogs several times each week. He said Mindfulness was one secret for destressing and happiness. When I asked what Mindfulness was, he gave an example. When you first taste a glass of wine, you comment on it.… More

This article is dedicated to my mother, who is 91 years today. Happy birthday Mum!

Last week, two good friends of mine from Houston stayed with me in ABQ for a week. Nancy and Dan had never met before coming to ABQ, so I was a little unsure how they would get along. All three of us were single, and each of us had broken up from a romantic relationship in the past six weeks. How weird is that! So we sang together the old Hank Williams song:

“There’s a tear in my beer coz I’m crying for you dear. You are on my lonely mind. I’ve cried and I’ve cried but my tears I cannot hide. You are on my lonely mind”.… More
