Radiation And Chemotherapy For Cancer Not Beneficial

In a study published in Lancet it was reported that successful cancer surgery patients who received post surgery radiation were 21% more likely to die than patients who received surgery alone.

Another study reported in Current Cancer Research took a look at chemotherapy. It credited chemo with remission in only 7% of the cases and it prolonged survival in only another 15% of the cases. In effect chemo was useless almost 80% of the time.

What To Do About The Flu And How To Recover Faster

Since it's the flu season, I thought you'd like to know this option.

Now there's something new and exciting that you can take to defend yourself if you get the flu. It's an herb called Sambucol, which is made from elderberries. In a study researchers gave half the patients Sambucol and the rest a placebo.

In 3 days, 90% of the patients taking Sambucol were completely cured. Blood tests showed the flu was completely gone. You can purchase Sambucol at your local health food store.

How A Baby Learns

Bruce Lipton shared this information at a seminar he conducted. He said the way babies learn between birth and age six is based on their brain wave patterns as measured by EEGs. Babies operate in the brain wave states of delta and theta. Clinical hypnotherapists refer to this as the hypnogogic state. This is the state that the client's brain must reach so that they are susceptible to suggestion.

This means a baby is being programmed by everything that goes on around it. The baby is making the perceptions and behaviors of his or her parents its own. These then become the baby's fundamental beliefs and attitudes about life. So...if you have a baby, keep in mind that what you say and do has an impact.

A Poem For The Times We Live In

I ran across this poem and thought it appropriate for the times which we live. It was written hundreds of years ago by the Chinese philosopher, Lao Tse to explain how each of us is a pathway to peace.

"If there is to be peace in the world,
     There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
      There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
     There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace in between neighbors,
      There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
      There must be peace in the heart."

All Drugs Are Not The Same

While I don't normally recommend drugs, for those of you who are inclined to take a drug to lower your cholesterol, you need to be aware of a study which compared the statin Lipitor and Pravacol. The researcher were surprised to find that after 18 months Lipitor lowered cholesterol levels more than Pravachol (79 vs. 110). Lipitor also had a measurable effect on the buildup of plaque in the patients' arteries. It actually stopped the deposits, developing and may have even shrunk them a little. Pravachol just slowed the progression of the fatty buildup.

In addition a study at Oxford University found that diabetics who took statins daily lower the risk of having a first heart attack or stroke by 25%.

Since I do prefer the non-drug route there's another option to cholesterol drugs and that's taking niacin. Dr. William Campbell Douglas recommends taking niacin in the form of inositol hexaniacinate. His view is everyone should be taking 190 mg per day.

If you're diagnosed with high cholesterol then he recommends the following regimen: Start with 500 mg three times per day for two or three weeks. Then increase the dosage to 1,000 mg. Once your cholesterol is down to under 280, cut back to 500 mg three times per day. Once you're down to under 250 , cut that dose in half. You can find inositol hexaniacinate in most health food stores. 

Men Need Social Networks To Live Longer

Time Magazine reported a study of more than 800 men and women and found that socially isolated men ages 70 to 79 appear to be at greater risk of heart disease than men with more robust social networks. There was no link that they could find with women, heart disease and social networks.

So...for men, you want to keep those friendships going as you age and develop new ones for your health.

Options If You Are Pre-hypertensive

One of my Teplitz Report subscribers, Chris, emailed about his having pre-hypertension, which is moving towards high blood pressure.. Here's what he did to solve the difficulties:

"I began taking CoEnzyme Q10, proanthocyanidin (Grape Seed extract), Pycnogenol, Coral Calcium...along with my normal Vitamin C and multivitamin.

Within a month or two, I was back to a healthy normal -- maybe a higher systolic due to my caffeine intake, but my diastolic has been perfect."
