Cancer is a class of animal disease, medically know as malignant neoplasm, wherein a cluster of cells show unrestrained growth ie division beyond the normal limit, intrusion and damage of tissues adjacent to them and spread (via blood or lymph) to other places. This malady is not restricted to just homosapiens but can even affect animals.
Reportedly, 7.6 million people died from cancer in the previous year.

In most of the cases, cancer is identified due to symptoms and its diagnosis is usually confirmed by a pathologist, who is a type of physician specializing in diagnosis of cancer. Suspected people are usually investigated with medical tests like blood test, X-rays, CT scan and endoscopy.

There are various methods for Cancer treatments such as surgery, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and various other methods. The type of method employed depends on the patient's general health and the location and the stage of the tumour spread.
Complete surgical excision is possible in very few cases since the cancerous tissues usually metastasizes to other places in the patient's body before the surgery. Masectomy is the surgical treatment used for treating breast cancer while for prostate cancer, prostatectomy is used. The aim of carrying out the surgery is to remove the tumour or if required the entire affected organ, which is however unfortunately limited to very few cases of small cancer.

Radiation therapy is also known as radiotherapy. It uses ionizing radiation for killing cancerous cells and shrinking the tumors. It damages the genetic material of the cells thereby preventing them from replicating further. The drawback of this methodology of remedial is that it often damages the normal cells in addition to the harmful ones. Though, in most cases the normal ones recover and re-function properly, it leads to permanent damage in some. It is used in treating brain cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and also cancer of the skin, prostate, uterus, stomach, or pancreas. Even lymphoma and leukemia can be treated by radiation.

Cancer can also be treated by Chemotherapy which involves use of drugs which destroy rapidly dividing cells. It interferes in various ways with division of cells and has the potential of harming healthy tissues. However after Chemotherapy these healthy cells repair themselves. High dose Chemotherapy is used for treatment of certain lymphomas and leukaemias.

Targeted Therapy is another medium for cure which employs certain agents which are specific for the cancer cells' deregulated protein. It also involves small peptides which bind to the surface cell receptors surrounding the tumour.

Some cancer growth can be checked by either injecting or obstructing certain hormones. Some hormone sensitive cancers are breast and prostate cancer. Removing estrogen or testosterone is also often used as an additional treatment.

Controlling cancer symptoms is not a stereotypical form of treatment aimed at cancer, but it also determines the standard of life of the victims of cancer, and plays a pivotal role in deciding whether the person would be able to undertake other treatments. …

The Busy Woman Fitness Plan

Someone asked me the other day which workouts should she choose to do. She was a little confused because in my post’s I talk about weight training, kettlebells, interval training and bodyweight exercises. So I could see how she was a little confused.

My answer to her and all of you is use them all. You know the whole variety is the spice of life thing. When it comes to exercise vatiety is your best path. Now I mentioned 4 different ways to exercise above do you know the combination and workouts you could put together?

Using variety will keep you interested and focused on getting to your fitness goals. I don’t know about you but I tend to get bored easily and let’s face it exercise isn’t always the most exciting thing in your life. If you keep challenging yourself with new and different workouts you will start to look forward to them. Especially once you start seeing the rewards in the mirror.

The one small problem with using exercise variety like I do is you have to really plan ahead. Back in the old day’s of doing the basic bodybuilding splits you went to your garage or gym or wherever you worked out and were going to do the same workout as you have been doing.

I tend to go by feel sometimes just for whatever reason I might feel like doing a particular exercise or exercises so I do it.

What I want to give you here is how to incorporate a variety of exercise programs to use. You do need to plan this ahead on at least a weekly basis.

Committ to Weight training Monday and Thursday

busy-womans-exercise

Tuesday and Friday do some Kettlebell exercises

busy-woman-kettlebell-exercise-workouts

Wednesday and Saturday could be Interval Training.

begniner-training

This is just an example of how you could set up your exercise week.

Like I said sometimes I feel like doing something in particular so I do it.

I guess in a round about way what I’m saying is if you say to yourself I am weight training today but I really feel like doing Intervals than do Intervals that day. You are motivated to do intervals not weight train that day. Chances are if you say I have to weight train you probably won’t even make it thruogh your workout.

Then you’ll be mad at yourself for that.

Oh I forgot to mention Exercise complexes well that’s for another day.

For Better Health – Go Vegan

What is Vegan is all About?

Veganism is a stricter version of vegetarianism. It is a phenomenon that is catching up fast especially amongst the more health conscious people. It concentrates more upon minimizing or totally eliminating the use of any sort of animal product, be it in food or clothing or anything else.

So being vegan means bidding good bye to things like butter, milk, cheese, meat, honey, eggs and chocolates and replacing them with things like soy milk, sorbet, lentils and tofu as far as the menu charts are concerned. It also signifies the end of apparels made of silk, and being replaced by traditional cotton or rayon.

Reasons for Veganism

The reasons for doing so might vary from being purely ethical to the mere concern about health – or both!

Many of those suffering from lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cancer, hypertension, etc have reported positive effects and it is routinely being referred to Veganism for the diabetes reversal programs. It has also been reported to have a positive effect amongst those who want to attain weight loss.

Two of the most common animal products that we consume are milk ( and variations such as cheese, butter, clarified fat, etc ), meat products and poultry products that include eggs. The other commonly used item is fish. These have to be replaced with soy milk, tofu, lentils, soy nuggets, Broccoli, Mushrooms, etc.

As far as other animal products are concerned they are generally related to items of apparel (silk) or fashion accessories (leather jackets, pashmina shawls and the like ). They can be easily replaced with substitutes.

To be or not to be a Vegan?

There are arguments and counter arguments for following this way of Vegan life, but finally it is a matter of personal choice and concerns about lifestyle, health and prevention of cruelty to animals that leads us to take such a decision. Veganism is certainly not a big price to pay if it can deliver better health that it promises.…

Maintaining Mental Stability – Behavioral Health and Happiness

Charles Darwin discovered that we are basically primates. However, scientific discoveries carried on in the end of the twentieth century prove that the truth about the human nature is more complex than what he had believed.

The biologist and behaviorist Konrad Lorenz and other biologists discovered that we are basically programmed to react in a certain way. All wild animals are programmed to have certain specific reactions to various stimuli from their environment that indicate danger, that help them find food, and many other things. This means that many of the reactions that appear in our behavior are not the result of our own decisions, but the result of the existence of behavioral programs that pre-define our reactions, depending on the various stimuli of our environment that put them into action .

Lorenz related the findings of many biologists to his own findings concerning human and animal behavior. His remarkable research should have enlightened humanity. However, the conclusions he made were not appreciated by our hypocritical world leaders. This is why his discoveries did not change the global mindset, even though he was honored with the Noble Prize in 1974.

He discovered that there are so many hard-wired responses in human behavior, that we can not talk about 'human freedom'. In other words, if we are already programmed to react like animals in so many ways, we do not have the freedom to make our own decisions and do what we really want to. We do not control our behavior as we believe we do.

I related Konrad Lorenz's discoveries to Carl Jung's discoveries about the meaning of dreams. Then, I continued Jung's research through dream interpretation, discovering the wild side of our conscience (anti-conscience) that he could not see. The anti-conscience is our primitive conscience that did not evolve like our human side. It is a very violent primate, with the difference that it can think.

The existence of such primitive content in the biggest part of our brain means that we are basically cavemen who did not evolve enough yet. This is why so many behavioral programs determine our behavior.

The powerful anti-conscience generates mental illnesses and mental disorders within our human conscience until it manages to destroy it. Then, it completely controls our behavior, leading us to terror and despair.

If we want to maintain our mental stability and behave in a way that will help us find happiness in life, we must eliminate the absurd thoughts generated by our anti-conscience. We must also eliminate the negative behavior imposed by its violent nature.

The unconscious mind that produces our dreams works like a doctor because we need constant protection and guidance. We must follow the unconscious psychotherapy in order to transform the anti-conscience into positive content before it manages to destroy our humanity. Only then will we acquire true behavioral health and mental stability. Thus, only then will we find real peace and happiness in life. …

The Importance of a Healthy and Clean Environment

Everyone wants to stay healthy and no one wishes to get sick at all times: that is why you too do everything to make sure that the environment you live in is clean, by sanitizing and sterilizing the things that you use on a daily basis and defending your home from pests.  However, many people out there choose to spend a fortune in buying different solutions to ensure that they achieve such results.  

Illness-free

Living in a home that is clean means that you and your family members are very likely to be free from unwanted illnesses, because, believe it or not, dirt is what attracts pests, which are responsible for causing many diseases.  In fact, if your environment is unkempt, different bugs and mosquitoes may thrive in it.  Mosquitoes are great bearers of sickness: just think that some of them are so dangerous that they have taken millions of lives worldwide.  

However, if you are going to thoroughly clean your environment – even the hidden parts and corners of the house, you are assured that those unwanted bugs will not harm or put your family’s health at risk.

Relieves you from emotional stress

Let’s face it, you feel worried even when a casual friend of yours is sick. They may pass their illness to you, or to one of your family members. But how much burden to your emotions it would be if the person involved is one of your children, a relative or a close friend?  It will surely stress you out emotionally.  Now remember that emotions play a big role in the entire human system.  Emotional stress leads to anxiety, then to depression.  Later on, you may lose your appetite, sleeplessness, restlessness and the list goes on.  Having an ill member of the family creates a domino effect.  On the other hand, you can definitely prevent this from happening.  You just have to keep your environment clean.

Saves you from financial burden

With the unpredictable status of the economy these days, the last thing you want to be doing is to spend a hundred bucks in medicines and hospitalization.  In fact, not everybody has the privilege of being covered by medical insurance.  But also in that case medicines would cost so much you’d have to pay for them yourself. Well just think that you can save more and spend your money in other things if you just keep your surroundings cleansed and sanitized.

Time is gold

Money can be replaced and health can be restored in most cases. But what with time? You are familiar with the phrase, “Time lost is time wasted”.  It is so true.  When you get sick, you spend time resting because you have no energy to do your work.  The hardest part is that time can never be replaced and restored anymore.  Make full use of your time in things productive.  Clean your environment and maintain it that way.

Another wise quote is, “Prevention is better than cure”.  By keeping your environment …

Ayurvedic Herbs Can Help with Many Health Issues

Ayurvedic herbs are a part of holistic and alternative treatments many use to cleanse the body from the inside out.

Ayurvedic medicine are still labeled under dietary supplements but contain the ingredients used to treat the body for many millennia.

In cases such as asthma, cold and bronchial congestion, different ayurvedic herbs are prescribed. Use churnas – similar to curry – to sprinkle over your food. Different churnas balance different elements in the body. Ayurveda divides the body into 3 dosahas, or biological energies: Vata (air), Kapha (earth and water) and Pitta (fire). Vata churnas are warming, Pitta churnas are cooling and Kapha churnas are mildly hot and spicy.

Ayurvedic teas also work for individual balancing, but there are also Vata-Pitta-Kapha teas for all body types. Narayana oil is joint massage oil that alleviates discomfort from all types of conditions including arthritis, backache, fibromyalgia, gout, hip pain, muscle cramps, sciatica and sprains. Brahmi hair oil not only helps with dandruff, dry hair, itchy scalp and split ends, but also promotes mental health by improving emotional disturbances, concentration, mental imbalance, poor memory and senility.

Healthy Diet: Positive And Negative Aspects

People who have a healthy diet plan use it for various reasons. Some use it for losing weight and others may use it for health reasons (they may have been diagnosed with a sickness that needs them to watch what they eat or they just want to keep themselves healthy). Whatever the reason, if you follow a diet plan or you include in your meal some of the most recommended healthy food, you should not only be aware of its positive impact on your health or body but also the negative impact on your health if used incorrectly or abused. In this article, I’ll cover some of the recommended diet plans like: Include fish in your meal, Eat fruits and Vegetables everyday, Eat fibre, and Drink a lot of water. I’ll mention their benefits as well as the risk associated with some of these tips.

1. Include Fish in Your Meal

Fish is a source of lean protein and rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids good for skin, brain and eye development. Fish oil may help reduce inflammation and contribute in keeping the heart healthy. It is low in calories. Eating fish comes with some health risk. Almost all fish and shellfish contain some traces of mercury (poisonous naturally occurring substance). Chronic mercury has been link to many diseases and even death. Highest level of mercury is found in larger fish such as shark, tilefish, king mackerel, swordfish and albacore tuna (a popular canned tuna). Low in mercury or safe fish includes sardines, trout, Pollock, light tuna, tilapia, anchovies and certain types of catfish. To avoid excess exposure, experts suggest two meals of fish per week.

2. Eat Fruit and Vegetables Everyday

Eating fruit and vegetables have many health benefits. The following are some of the health benefits: Fruit and vegetables contain many vitamins and minerals that help with the reduction in the risk of dying from diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. It results into lower blood pressure, improve bowl function, facilitate weight loss and maintains healthy weight. The negative aspect of fruit and veggies is that some contain pesticides (a substance used for killing insects harmful to the cultivated plants or to animals). More than 400 chemicals are used in the manufacturing of pesticides and some of these chemicals causes many illnesses, the most common being cancer. Twelve fruits known as dirty dozen(pear, apple, peaches, cherries, grapes, lettuce, bell peppers, hale, celery nectarine, strawberries and carrots) may contain more than 8 different pesticides in a single serving, even when washed and peeled. Good news is that there are some fruits and veggies which least likely to have pesticides residue known as Clean 15 (sweet peas, avocado, onion, pineapple, sweet corn, cabbage, eggplant, mango, tomato, watermelon, sweet potato, papaya, kiwi, asparagus and broccoli)

Alternative Medicine – Ayurvedic

Alternative medicines come in many forms and Ayurvedic is one of them. Many people have not heard of this healing medium as it only came to the fore in 1980 although the practice of Ayurvedic healing is said to be over 5000 years old.

Ayurvedic means life and knowledge. This ancient alternative healing system has been practiced in India for many years although there is now a tendency towards western style medicine in the main cities. But most of the population live in rural areas where it is estimated that 70% still use this form of healing.

The basics of Ayurvedic are broke down into three main categories and those are diet, herbs, and yoga. Certain authorities have warned that some of the herbs used could be poisonous, and there are a host of people saying that this form of alternative medicine is a rip off, and that if anyone should want to go down this route of alternative medicine is that they should double check what they are taking. Not being a scientist or a botanist I feel as though I do not have that sort of expertise to comment any further about the herbs used.

But again with all forms of alternative medicine there will always be people that will say that the unusual does not work although a lot of the websites I visited said that it was good for arthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. A good point to push forward here would be to mention the fact that one of the more popular food supplements on the market today is Micro Phytoplankton which is nothing but a single cell alga, and who would have said ten years ago that we would be taking this type of food supplement on a daily basis.

Like a lot of alternative medicine cures Ayurvedic medicine is diet based which seems to be the modern trend and when you read all the reports on how diet based cures are having success it’s no wonder that this type of alternative medicine is catching on.

Another thing I did notice about Ayurvedic medicine is that is based on a vegetarian diet which would be on the alkaline side rather than the acid contents of sugar based products and meat.

As for Rheumatoid arthritis that can leave people in such a bad way that they can become bed ridden and in so much pain I do believe from reading reports of them being cured through these diet related cures is a good thing. Perhaps modern medicine has a lot to learn although I do believe that some of the large drug companies have taken out patents on certain of the drugs that are used in Ayurvedic medicine, which to me tells me that there is something there otherwise they would not be taking such measures.…
