One Man’s Harvard-Documented Remission of Incurable Cancer Using Only Natural Methods, Part 1
January 26, 2017
N of 1: One man’s Harvard-documented remission of incurable cancer using only natural methods.” In 1991, Glenn Sabin was faced with a dilemma: He was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a slowly progressing but incurable cancer. He declined a bone marrow transplant which carried with it a 20% mortality risk. Gradually, he adopted lifestyle measures which kept his cancer at bay until 2003, when his disease came back with a vengeance. But with diet, exercise, stress reduction and targeted supplements he managed to reverse his condition to the point where at present no trace of cancer is detectable—without resorting to conventional treatments. His story became the subject of a peer-reviewed article in a medical journal. What diet worked for Glenn? What role did stress reduction play in his recovery? What nutraceuticals did he rely on? Why is Glenn reluctant to use the term “cure?” What’s the message for cancer sufferers? Click HERE for part 2.

Clinical Focus: The Microbiome, Part 1
January 19, 2017
2500 years ago, Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” declared that “all disease starts in the gut.” With the advent of modern science, we relegated the status of the gut to that of a mere food tube, a mechanical conduit for nutrients and waste products. But there’s been a modern renaissance in our understanding of the GI tract: It houses the microbiome, a collection of micro-organisms that outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. The microbiome deserves the status of an organ unto itself. According to Dr. Alessio Fasano, an expert on celiac disease and gut health, “The gut is not like Las Vegas—what happens in the gut doesn’t stay in the gut.” The microbiome has an impact on shaping immunity, determining whether we’ll be susceptible to infectious diseases or autoimmunity; it affects the brain, in such diverse conditions as autism, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, anxiety and depression; it shapes our hormones (thyroid, adrenal, growth hormone, estrogen and testosterone); and it impacts metabolism, influencing whether we’ll gain weight or develop diabetes. Why is the microbiome under attack via our Western lifestyles? What are some ways we can cultivate a healthy microbiome? Click HERE for part 2.
