A two-time breast cancer survivor’s journey through cancerland

When men dressed like Franciscan monks, wearing sandals and brown hooded robes belted with a rope, appeared in Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos’ dreams in 1999 and told her she had breast cancer, she didn’t ignore them although her recent mammogram, Pap smear and blood work had revealed no abnormalities.

Fruit: Friend or foe for ill people?

Many of us grew up being told an apple a day keeps the doctor away and these days we’re told to eat certain berries because they’re loaded with antioxidants. As important as we’re told fruit is to our overall health, experts debate whether it works for or against people who are sick.

Dr. Brian Clement has spent more than three decades studying nutrition and natural health care. As co-director of Hippocrates Health Institute, the preeminent leader ...

Mistletoe Extract as Cancer Therapy

By Dr. Mitchell Gaynor
Founder and President, Gaynor Integrative Oncology
Asst. Clinical Professor of Medicine, Weill-Cornell Medical College

Cancer is a scary diagnosis. There’s no doubt about that.

As an integrative oncologist, I emphasize treating the person and not just cancer. I incorporate conventional medicine using chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies, and targeted therapies with nutritional forms ...

The Emerging Role of Iodine in Breast Health

Posted by:

From the October 2011 issue of Life Extension

Iodine deficiency is rapidly emerging as a major risk factor for breast cancer.

Breast tissue is rich in the same iodine-transporting proteins used by the thyroid gland to take up iodine from the blood.18,38 The evolutionary reasons for this are clear: iodine is essential to the developing newborn brain, so ...

Why we should pay attention to heavy metal poisoning

Posted by:

Heavy metal poisoning isn’t in the news as often it should be due to the amount of people unknowingly affected by it. Spirit tells me that mercury and aluminum poisoning is on the rise and has reached epidemic levels.

Heavy metals are like a hidden, behind-the-scenes instigator and that’s not being acknowledged to the point it should be. The difference between 20 years ago and now is huge but ...
