Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.
The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Cancer Update from non other than....Johns Hopkins!!
Cancer cells occur between 6-10 times in a person's lifetime.
With a strong immune system, cancer cells are destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
A person with cancer indicates they have nutritional deficiencies. They could be genetic, but also environmental, food & lifestyle.
To overcome nutritional deficiencies, change diet to eat healthier. Include supplements to strengthen the immune system. IMHO...a healthy immune system is key!!
Chemo involves poisoning rapidly-growing cancer cells and destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damge, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs.
Radiation, while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissue and organs.
Initial chemo and radiation treatment often reduces tumor size. However prolonged use of chemo and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
When the body has too much toxic burden from chemo and radiation the immune system is compromised or destroyed and the person can succumb to various infections and complications.
Chemo and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and hard to destroy. Surgery can cause cancer cells to spread!
An effective way to battle cancer is to starve cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiply. CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
1) sugar and chemical substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, etc. that are made with harmful aspartame. A bettter substitute is stevia, manuka honey or molasses but only in small amounts. Table salts has an added chemical to make it white. Better alternative is sea salt.
2) milk products mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. Cut off milk. Substitute unsweetened soy (NON GMO...my words) milk, starving cancer cells.
3) cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic. It's best to eat fish and a little other meat, like chicken. Meat contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites which are harmful, especially to people with cancer.
4) a diet of 80% fresh veggies and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruit put the body into an alkaline environment. 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach cellular levels in 15 min. to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells, drink fresh vegetable juice (most veggies including bean sprouts) and eat raw vegetables 2-3 times daily. Enzymes are destroyed at 104 degrees F.
5) avoid coffee, tea, chocolate, high caffeine. drink green tea with cancer fighting properties. water; best to drink purified or filtered, to avoid toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
Meat protein is hard to digest and requires lots of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remains in the intestine, putrifies and leads to more toxic buildup.
Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from, or eating less meat, frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls and allows the body's killer cells to destroy cancer cells.
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. Vit. E causes apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted or unneeded cells. (make sure you get the real Vit. E...d-alpha is the true form, dl-alpha is the man made form. it will say on the bottle)
Cancer is a disease of the mind, body & spirit. A pro-active and positive spirit helps the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body in a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit, relax and enjoy life.
Cancer cells can't thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising and deep breathing get more oxygen to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means to destroy cancer cells. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to our body's cells. Don't freeze plastic bottles with water in them. This releases dioxins from the plastic which is very bad for us. Don't microwave food using plastic containers. This expecially applies to fatty foods. Combination of fat, high heat and containers for heating. Same results without the dioxin. Remover TV dinners, instant ramen, soups, etc. from containers and heat in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what's in the paper. It's safer to use tempered glass. Some fast food restauants moved from foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one reason. Plastic wrap (Saran, cling wrap) is just as dangerous when placed over microwaved food. As food is nuked, high heat causes poisonous toxins to melt out of the wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
