Raw Foods Enhance Breast Cancer Treatments?

Posted by on Feb 23 2012 | Natural Health

Women with a genetic predisposition to breast cancer — as in women with a mother or grandmother diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime — are probably looking for any way to enhance their odds of staying healthy. As it turns out, there is a direct relationship between those at risk of breast cancer and a woman’s diet.

A study shows that there is a higher ratio of women that were identified as having breast cancer if they ate a common unhealthy diet. This unhealthy diet includes ones that are rich in red meats and refined grains. Women who adopt diets that are rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are less likely to contract breast cancer.

Not only can a raw food diet increase a woman’s chances of avoiding breast cancer, but specific raw foods can also minimize many of the negative effects of chemotherapy. Wheat grass juice consumption has been shown to be effective in a reduction of the necessary doses required.

Lavender Oil Proven Effective for Occasional Anxiety

Posted by on Feb 13 2012 | Natural Health

Lavender oil is an effective treatment for insomnia and anxiety, in addition to burn treatment.

Lavender is used as an essential oil for aromatherapy. It can also be made into a tea from the leaves. The oil can be applied to the skin — the inner wrists — and then inhaled through the nose to maximize its effectiveness. The leaves are steeped in hot water for 15 minutes.

MRSA is common in hospitals because of staph infections becoming resistant to the overuse of antibiotics. Testing has demonstrated lavender’s ability to destroy staph infections. To date, lavender hasn’t been used for fighting staph infections.

Regional access to lavender in Europe and the UK is about to have its public access stopped. Lavender for health and therapeutic uses may soon be by prescription only in the EU and UK.

Cocoa Dark Chocolate Lowers Risk of Colon Cancer

Posted by on Feb 06 2012 | New Health Discoveries

Colon cancer is the third highest cause of cancer deaths each year. Even with increased awareness of colon cancer and strides in diagnosis, colon cancer remains deadly.

New studies lead scientists to conclude that regular consumption of cocoa negates the inflammatory effect of digestive oxidative stress — the chemical process that results in intestinal complaints and is usually a precursor to the onset of colon cancer.

In fact, cocoa is now has “superfood” status because it has been shown to improve blood lipids and it helps prevent cardiovascular disease. Additionally, the protective effects of the compounds in cocoa stopped cell-signaling pathways that often promote cell proliferation and end up with tumor development.

Note: milk chocolate is not a good source of cocoa because of its low concentration of the polyphenol and high sugar content.
