Healthier Pet Owners = Healthier Pets, New Evidence Reveals Exercise Alone Can Improve Cancer Prognosis and Quality of Life

Healthier Pet Owners = Healthier Pets, New Evidence Reveals Exercise Alone Can Improve Cancer Prognosis and Quality of Life

The leading cause of death in cats and dogs today is cancer, and nearly a quarter of all pets will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime. Such statistics can be terrifying to pet owners. Many do what they can to prevent cancer, and, if their pet is diagnosed, seek to find ways to improve their beloved pet’s medical care and quality of life. Borrowing from human cancer patient studies, recent research shows that a healthy lifestyle involving plenty of exercise can greatly improve a cancer patient’s prognosis and overall quality of life. The same is true for our pets.

Langhorne, PA (Vocus) June 23, 2009

The leading cause of death in cats and dogs today is cancer, and nearly a quarter of all pets will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime. Such statistics can be terrifying to pet owners. Many do what they can to prevent cancer, and, if their pet is diagnosed, seek to find ways to improve their beloved pet’s medical care and quality of life. Borrowing from human cancer patient studies, recent research shows that a healthy lifestyle involving plenty of exercise can greatly improve a cancer patient’s prognosis and overall quality of life. The same is true for our pets.

According to veterinary oncologist Dr. Beth Overley, VMD, DACVIM of the Center for Animal Referral and Emergency Services (CARES), in Langhorne “preserving a pet’s quality of life is wholly important. It’s our goal to provide our clients with sound advice on how to make their pet’s life better. Weight management and exercise top our recommendations list.” Dr. Overley also states that “while pet owners should know there is no alternative or natural approach capable of curing cancer by itself, there are benefits to an active and healthy lifestyle combined with the very best conventional medicine has to offer. Also, a healthy lifestyle can be transferred from pet to owner and owner to pet, which improves everyone’s overall quality of life.”

To illustrate the power of using exercise as a supplement to cancer treatments, consider the Health, Eating, Activity and Lifestyle (HEAL) study of 933 human breast cancer patients. HEAL revealed that moderate-intensity physical activity reduced the risk for death by 67% in women who remained active 2 years after diagnosis (as released by Yale School of Medicine and posted by Medscape Medical News, April, 2009).

“Treating cancer has an element of uncertainty and unpredictability,” explains Dr. Overley. “Two patients with the same type of cancer may experience completely different responses to treatment and different rates of tumor progression. This is attributable to many factors, some we cannot control, but studies like HEAL indicate that there are lifestyle factors, like exercise and nutrition, which can be controlled and can make a real difference.”

How one family are fighting their pet’s cancer with chemo, exercise and a healthy diet:

Rob and Gina Aspenleider, of the Philadelphia area, consider their dog Natasha, a young German Shepherd/Sheltie mix, their child. When their regular veterinarian confirmed the enlarged lymph nodes and red areas they’d noticed forming on Natasha’s belly were actually manifestations of lymphoma (a very common form of cancer in cats and dogs), they feared the absolute worst. “It was a horrific roller coaster of emotions. We braced for losing her,” recalled Gina and Rob. “Our general vet referred Natasha to Dr. Overley at CARES whose first words were ‘I’ve seen this before.

We can treat Natasha.’ At that moment, we felt hope. Natasha began chemotherapy treatments right away, but we wanted to do more at home. We started by changing her diet to homemade foods, vitamins and, most importantly, made sure she got as much exercise as she could. During the beginning, the chemo made her tired, so we’d stop and rest. We continued exercising and within weeks of treatment, when most pets might be sick and weak, she wanted to get out and play and even run! Six months after beginning chemotherapy, Dr. Overley shared the most remarkable news, Natasha was in remission! A big part of her success was the competence of Dr. Overley.” Rob and Gina have continued her healthy regimen of running her at least three times a week for at least 2 miles. Natasha is now over one year out from diagnosis and start of treatment. She’s still running and enjoying a great quality of life.

Ten Common Signs of Cancer in Small Animals
1. Abnormal swellings that persist or continue to grow
2. Sores that do not heal
3. Weight loss
4. Loss of appetite
5. Bleeding or discharge
6. Offensive odor, often from the mouth
7. Difficulty eating or swallowing
8. Hesitation to exercise or loss of stamina
9. Persistent lameness or stiffness
10. Difficulty breathing, urinating, or defecating
(Source: American Veterinary Medical Association)

Above all, Dr. Overley recommends that pet owners are vigilant and visit their veterinarians for regularly scheduled checkups and at the first sign of anything abnormal. “We work closely with referring veterinarians and depend upon them to advise owners when and how to refer their pet to us. If there is a lump or bump found, often it’s a great idea for the referring veterinarian to take a needle aspirate and evaluate some of the cells to make sure it’s benign. The earlier a pet is diagnosed, staged, and treated, the greater the chance of a positive outcome for the patient,” says Dr. Overley.

Entrepeneur Peter H. Thomas Honors Son With Lifemanual, A ‘Virtual’ How-To Program For Success

Entrepeneur Peter H. Thomas Honors Son With Lifemanual, A ‘Virtual’ How-To Program For Success

New Web Site Shows 5 Steps to a Values-Driven Life

Victoria, BC (PRWEB) June 26, 2006

Entrepreneur, business mentor and self-help leader Peter H. Thomas may be retired, but his comeback venture into capital is all about social capital. Thomas’ not-for-profit company, LifePilot, is now offering a web-based ‘operations manual for life’ that teaches people to discover and then live by their values, aligning them with their daily goals in order to reach their highest, personal potential.

LifeManual, a values-based LifePilot program born of the practices that led to Thomas’ great business and personal successes over 40 years, is an accolade to Todd Thomas, the author’s son. The younger Thomas committed suicide as a result of a mental illness. In tribute, net proceeds from all the LifePilot initiatives are earmarked for building community programs that share the tools and message of LifePilot as well as to the Todd Thomas Foundation (http://www. toddthomasfoundation. org/ (http://www. toddthomasfoundation. org/)) to support mental health crisis treatment programs and children’s charities. To date, close to three million dollars have been raised for the Tood Thomas Foundation (USA) and the Thomas Foundation (Canada).

LifeManual is the new web-based version of the LifePilot Workshop, Thomas’s world-renowned personal management workshop program. It’s been embraced worldwide and endorsed by young and old--from academic achievers to global business leaders, from young entrepreneur students to jail inmates. (http://www. lifemanual. com/index. php? page=stories (http://www. lifemanual. com/index. php? page=stories))

From a Workshop to the Web: Taking LifeManual Online

LifePilot’s success is heavily supported by testimony of unlimited success. However, the workshop format of the program limits how far the LifePilot message can spread since participation is limited to on-site participants. “Adding the virtual LifeManual program by providing the entire experience and support network through the Web is a way that we can reach out to a much larger audience,” Chris Smith, VP of LifePilot, said. “Offering LifeManual on the Internet will help us achieve two goals: we can help more people achieve personal happiness, succeeding in reaching their highest, personal potential, and we can also raise much needed awareness and funding for mental health and the numerous other charities we support.”

The web-based LifeManual program is a process that includes workshop-styled online video seminars and the complete LifeManual text, Through the program, participants create their personal LifeManual, “a blueprint to an extraordinary life.”

Star Entrepreneur Shares A Plan for Personal and Professional Success

Though Thomas won’t benefit from LifeManual financially, he’s just as zealous about this new undertaking as the work that led to his past career successes. Those mega successes span almost four decades, earning him an impressive reputation as a brilliant real estate entrepreneur and investment strategist.

Thomas is credited by associates as being one of the world brand developers for Century 21 Real Estate. He was founder and chairman of Century 21 Real Estate Canada Ltd., which developed into the largest real estate network in the country. When he sold the company in 1987, it had achieved $9 billion in annual sales and employed 8,500 sales representatives with 450 franchises.

Thomas was also founder of Samoth Capital Corporation, a real-estate investment firm, and developed the Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mystic Tan Canada (a UV-free alternative tanning system) is another golden achievement, along with shopping center development and even a new Nashville-based management group for country music artists. In addition to LifeManual, he's also authored three best-selling business books and is a highly regarded business strategist, sales coach, entrepreneurial mentor, and charitable supporter.

Thomas’ own LifeManual is just as important today as it was years ago, since it’s a ready reminder and record of what’s really important – “my LifeManual contains my values and records how I live by them.”

About LifeManual

Accredited by Arizona State University and the University of Victoria, the LifeManual program, www. lifemanual. com, is a systematic process of activities, mental exercises and reflection that leads to self discovery – an epiphany i. e., an instant wake-up call.

"The Economic Report" Show to Feature Gradient Medical, LLC

"The Economic Report" Show to Feature Gradient Medical, LLC

Gradient Medical, LLC will be featured in an upcoming episode.

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2008

The producers of The Economic Report are pleased to announce that Gradient Medical, LLC will be featured in an upcoming episode as part of the show's Pain Management series on Tomorrow's Health Solutions Today.

Pain is a national public healthcare crisis. It is estimated that 76.2 million Americans suffer from chronic pain with lower back pain (http://www. quadrabloc. com/?p=19) being the most common. It affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. The annual cost of chronic pain takes a massive toll on the United States economy. Approximately $100 billion is lost due to healthcare expenses, lost income and lost productivity.

While there is medical technology and knowledge available to relieve or greatly reduce most pain, chronic sufferers have difficulty finding doctors who have the tools to treat their pain. Many healthcare practitioners are unable to treat pain aggressively due to a therapeutic void, i. e. ready access to simple patient-friendly, efficacious, non-drug or non-surgical alternatives.

This lack of effective professional assistance in everyday pain management (http://www. quadrabloc. com/?p=33) has led many people to seek alternative medicine practices to help relieve their pain. One of the most tried alternatives is magnetic therapy. Tennessee-based Gradient Medical, LLC is a pioneer in magnet therapy (http://www. quadrabloc. com/?p=21) with its product QuadraBloc™. The research on QuadraBloc™ technology began in the early 1990s under a privately-funded research grant from the inventor in the Department of Neurology at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

QuadraBloc™ works by placing the steep field gradient of four rare earth magnets, arranged in alternating polarity, directly over the offending nerve(s) in order to block the firing of the action potentials of these nerves. QuadraBloc™ users can often gain relief in a very short time, without harmful pharmacological side effects or invasive surgery.

"QuadraBloc™ offers a simple, low cost, first line of treatment alternative with real therapeutic benefits for a number of everyday aches and pains," said John Townsend, founder and president of Gradient Medical, LLC.

Drug resistant Candida is pointed out to be the number one killer, sudden heart attacks in this report - which also explains how drug resistant bacteria initialize cancers and tumors!

Drug resistant Candida is pointed out to be the number one killer, sudden heart attacks in this report - which also explains how drug resistant bacteria initialize cancers and tumors!

Most suddenly occuring heart attacks are caused by Drug Resistant Candida, moving into the blood stream from an infected tooth. Cancers, tumors, and many of the "gene-related diseases" are caused by the DNA modules (i. e., plasmid DNA) that has become active after being passed into a given cell, from an unseen, drug-resistant bacteria. These findings were achieved by way of an extensive, epistemological study.

(PRWEB) November 6, 2003

(PRWEB0 November 4 2003--This is a two part report on drug resistant bacteria, as the hidden cause of heart attacks, strokes, cancers, tumors and other gene related diseases. I believe all these diseases are explained in this brief essay, and this information needs to be somehow placed on the Internet, and in front of the rest of the world where it might be read by someone like Björn Nordenström, M. D., Ph. D., (former chairman of the Department of Radiology at Karolinska Hospital and chairman of the selection committee that picks the Nobel Laureate for Physiology of Medicine.)

  Part I. These facts explains how drugs and various DNA transferring bacteria act as the major cause of heart attacks, strokes, and many cancers, gene related diseases. Primarily – any of these diseases are known to emerge following exposure to a chemical, carcinogen, drug, or sometimes, even after eating a certain food which induces an upset of the normal ecological balance of the intestinal flora. In reality, heavy smoking, or any of the above can commonly results in a general suppression of the hosts immune system.

  First, the data on drug-resistant Candida and how it happens to be the number one killer, in that, it causes a great majority of the unexpected heart attacks and strokes. As you may already know, exposure to various environmental toxins often causes people to become susceptible to Candida; the organism wasnÂ’t even known until the early 1990Â’s, and it is still being ignored by most individuals in the medical field because they simply donÂ’t know what to do to stop it. Frankly, chemicals, food additives, and poor nutrition enable Candida to thrive. This type of bacteria is also able to transform itself, growing root-like, rhizoid like legs and producing toxins that further lower a personÂ’s immunity. In other words there are many things that can (and usually do) result in Candida overgrowth. More specifically, cortisone, prednisone, and other steroid-type drugs are known to cause the opportunistic Candida to thrive. There are times when these drugs, and other drugs and chemicals, paralyze the bodyÂ’s defense systems, just as birth control pills and various estrogens are known to upset hormonal balances within the body, and thereby these factors also contribute to the abnormal growth of excessive Candida. (Note: some bacteria in the Clostridium family also break down fats into the minor estrogens, otherwise known as “impeded estrogens.”)

  There are also various contributing factors such as the western diet being typically high in sugar and other refined carbohydrates; that alone has already produced an entire generation of overweight people. The excessive weight is largely due to the growth of drug-resistant Candida and other high-energy, drug-resistant bacterium. The Candida in particular, are capable of producing so many toxins that they simply overwhelm the adrenal gland operations. The result is “no energy” or “low energy” people, who can only find temporary relief from the Candida, by frequently stuffing themselves with all kinds of food! Candida are also known to “impair immune functioning by directly and negatively impacting the helper-suppresser ratio of T lymphocytes,” (according to Charles R. Caulfield in his article "Natural Therapies For Candidiasis Infections” in the San Francisco Sentinel, August 27, 1992.)

  Everyone should be made aware of the fact that when it begins to emerges in ever increasing numbers in your body, this organism (Candida) progressively spreads out from the lower bowel to colonize the entire digestive tract, successively including the stomach, (especially in cases of low or no stomach acid) and from there it will spread into the throat, mouth, and even the nasal passages. It can even get into your eyes. When it does, it can cause blindness to occur. Once it moves into the throat and/or mouth, these ultra tiny microorganisms may even move down into the lungs. They are drug resistant, meaning, they can exchange DNA so upon reaching the lungs they emerge as Candida spp. a frequent asymptomatic colonizer of the upper respiratory tract, and especially well know for their ability to emerge among hospitalized patients. Or, these same microbes may emerge as primary Candida pneumonia, “life-threatening in patients with cancer since it directly contributed to the death of 84% of the patients,” in one study of a series of patients. (Medicine (Baltimore), 1993 May;72(3):137-42; PMID: 8502166.)

 The all important part for you to note - in those individuals where an infected tooth or periodontal disease is present, the candida may move into the mouth and then, directly into the blood stream. Then the Candida readily attached to the plaque deposits in the arteries of the heart - this is how it often causes a fatal heart attack! As soon as it transforms and begins to put down its budding rhizoids, the finger-like roots break up plaque deposits that have been building up over the years and years. That causes a rapidly forming mass in a given artery, and most persons are overwhelmed by the rapidly occurring injury that results. I believe this rather clearly and simply explains why the incidence of heart disease is about twice as high in people with periodontal (gum) disease. It also explains how years and years of plaque build up, can be quite suddenly acted upon, and subsequently, in only a day or two it is quite readily "broken up" inside an artery. Until this explanation came along, however, no plausible cause had ever been suggested. Other recent studies have indicated however, that the most common strain of bacteria in dental plaque also causes blood clots. So the all important thing is the rhizoid forming Candida that escape into the blood stream, and not the blood clots around a tooth.

 The big "missing factor" in all this is Co enzyme Q10. If everyone with dental problems was actually taking Co enzyme Q10, they wouldn't have "bleeding gums." Q10 shuts down all periodontal diseases and it rapidly strengthens the heart at the same time. When my own father had a heart attack in 1985 or so, 90% of those heart patients consistently died within a month as a result of the congestive heart failure that frequently develops. I put him on Co enzyme Q10, AM and with lunch. In less than 30 days his heart was back to absolutely normal, 100% restored! The average recovery rate, right now, for patients who have congestive heart problems - and they are taking Co enzyme Q10 - is very close to 100% in a time span of only 30 days! Unfortunately, if you're one of those persons whose doctor doesn't know about Coenzyme Q10 and the heart - you probably won't live long enough for him to tell you about it, unless you order it and start taking it on your own! Likewise, if you've got an infected tooth or periodontal diseases, along with Candida, the plain facts are that the chances go up and up for you getting a heart attack, each time you take a much needed nap, or lie down to sleep, simply because that's when the Candida are able to move up, more readily. Incidentally, many persons experience their first heart attack, immediately following their being confined to bed for a week or so, such as immediately following a cold. Medical researchers have been recently searching for various antigenic factors coming up, just prior to the heart attacks, and they have even concluded that having the flu bug, may frequently lead to heart attacks! In contrast, the probability is far, far greater, that the most common cause of heart attacks is still those blasted little, drug-resistant Candida - simply because are being prompted to grow and grow at an even far greater rate(!) when any given patient is given almost any form of flu fighting antibiotic drugs!

  The unseen relationship between increased heart attacks, candida and an infected tooth or periodontal diseases and other heart illnesses is also neatly explained in terms of the overt facts of history. In the not too distant past, the lessons of medical history show that while no one in previous generations had the ability to explain how great numbers of candida were what caused the toxins of “severe heartburn,” everyone was nevertheless were very much aware that “severe heart burn” frequently graduated to - “fatal heartburn!” Other researchers have also found that similar infections with Cytomegalovirus (CMV), (a usually dormant virus that can cause mononucleosis,) is associated with a higher risk of heart attacks or strokes. As I have mentioned, some claim it's because of the flu virus. Other have found that infections with more than one of several common disease-causing germs can also increase the risk for heart attacks and strokes. They think people who had one or more of CMV, Chlamydia pneumonia (respiratory infections), Helicobacter pylori (ulcers), and hepatitis A (a liver disease,) were also at increased risk for heart attacks. Thus, people exposed to all four pathogens had a higher risk compared with those exposed to just one of the four! I must still contend that no one previously grasped the fact that heart attacks and strokes are mainly due to the sudden presence of drug resistant Candida - with its ability to transform into a cell complete with rhizoids, after entering into the blood stream. And the Candida is obviously allowed (or caused) to readily build up to tremendous proportions whenever patients are given almost any form of antibiotics or almost any other medications for any of the above! (By the way, are you aware that Helicobacter pylori are the pathogens most often found to accompany Candida, in those persons where overwhelming Candida has been found to be present!)

  Part II. This leads directly to another highly debated factor of these diseases, or what is known as “stress factors.” This requires you can disconnect for a moment, from thinking about stress in terms of having Candida and H. pylori in your stomach, and they are eating you alive, while everyone is telling you "it's all in your head!" I mean, in addition to that type of “psychological stress,” or "bodily stress," I believe I can explain to you an infinitely more harmful type of stress that I see as being truly at work as part of the cause, in many other diseases. What I mean by this is that every tissue has its own set of ecological values - which match those of the environment required by some type of nearly invisible bacteria. Furthermore, when the microbes involved are high-energy, drug resistant bacteria, in those cases where infection occurs, they grow in abundance and they commonly generate their own toxic byproducts - as does Candida, H. pylori, and many other organisms. In other words the presence of these microbes at a cellular level is what truly produces the so-called “stress factor,” that no one has been able to come to grips with, or fully understand. Unfortunately, this is the way in which the knowledge of modern medicine grows. One day, everyone finally beings to understand “the real cause of stress” – and how or why it emerges at a basic cellular level, or at a basic "tissue level," and all of a sudden everybody begins to realize that regardless of what tissue may become “infected,” or cancerous, itÂ’s a very common bacteriological mechanism!

  Why doesn't everyone know about all this? The answer is simply because no one has ever previously realized that all the "stress originating" cancers and the other “drug resistant diseases” can be viewed as a class - once one understands how they are caused by a specific class of very small bacteria which are able to transfer DNA into a living cell. These findings were achieved through a great deal of study, and patient epistemological investigation. Another real part of the overall problem has always been that these "stress causing" microorganisms are in fact, very difficult to see and seemingly impossible to isolate, because: a) the drug resistant strains are of an incredibly small in size, and the transferable DNAÂ’s that they exchange among themselves, or with other cells, are in fact, far, far smaller; b) typically, they are able to leave their ultra tiny, transferable DNA packets behind (now known as DNA plasmids) – all of which is readily proven by way of the initial controversy surrounding the discovery that they can only be seen by way of using an electron microscope accompanied by “metal staining techniques;” c) the presence of the unseen yet transferable DNA packets, (identifiable only by using an electron microscope and metal staining techniques,) actually explains why cancers and a large group of other drug resistant diseases reoccur so rapidly; d) the involvement of transferable packets of DNA modules also explains why this class of diseases (i. e., Cancers and The DNA Transfer Diseases,) are so difficult to medicate or otherwise eliminate; e) the drug-resistant bacteria that causes The DNA Transfer Diseases, typically grow very slowly under laboratory conditions, i. e., far to slowly to be readily recognized and/or discovered by using ordinary laboratory techniques; f) these organisms can change or shift from one phase to another when being isolated in the laboratory, and most of these DNA transferring, drug resistant species will only grow at or near 37 degree C, (or only at average body temperature,) g) any cooler temperatures or normal atmospheric oxygen will readily prohibit the proper drug-resistant phase from being cultured and/or otherwise detected; h) they will NOT grow in any normal laboratory where they are routinely exposed to normal atmospheric oxygen, i) and they tend to only grow and reproduce (at normal body temperatures) and their reproductive activities are mostly present, only when oxygen levels are low.

  In addition to the evidences that are readily available showing the existence of the transferable packets of DNA by electronic microscope and metal staining techniques, all cancers and tumors can be neatly categorized and otherwise explained in terms their being either: 1) tumors, which usually grow very slowly and result from a DNA packet without any transformation module(s), so they will only replicate within a given, narrow range of activity – and characteristically produce only some very limited variation of the same cell, over and over again; or 2) neoplastic cancers, the result of a transferable DNA packet that has the DNA modules within it to readily change or transform the DNA, so as to produce variable cell features, and they thereby replicate along a very broad range of activity, which includes the ability to self-transfer, better known as metastasis; and 3) hormone sensitive cancers, which are driven by a transferable DNA packet (as above,) that also contain their own form of normal hormonal features. Hence, the importance of the previous note that some bacteria in the Clostridium family break down fats into the minor estrogens, otherwise known as “impeded estrogens.” In other words, the characteristic features that surround the production of various impeded estrogens in many breast cancers are all explained when the otherwise foreign DNA from a drug-resistant Clostridium gains entry into a breast cell. They will be operational in that area, on a monthly, periodic basis, breaking down the various milk fats that are left among the swollen breast tissue, each time the expected pregnancy does not take place. Hence, once they pass their DNA into a given breast cell that cell becomes cancerous; it rapidly divides, and the every growing mass of cells will produce the minor estrogens forms known mainly as the “impeded estrogens.”

  Their growth conditions for this type of bacteria are so extreme, however, that one such cancer causing, DNA transferring bacteria that has already been found, and it turned out to be so unusual that they in some ways approximate the growth conditions of Campylobacter. After more than a year of patient investigation, when researchers had attempted time and time again to isolate one such microorganism, often found to be closely associated with Candida, they only succeeded when cultures were inadvertently left evidently in a sun warmed incubator, or apparently in a non-air conditioned laboratory, for a period of 6 days over the Easter holidays! This chance prolongation of temperatures and the incubation period (from the usual 2 days to 6 days!) resulted in the successful growth and isolation of a microorganism. (see Lynch, Nancy A., “Helicobacter pylori and Ulcers: a Paradigm Revised," University of Iowa College of Medicine, Dept of Pathology.) I believe it to also be the organism once described in 1925 in The British Medical Journal, as being “obtained almost constantly from cancers,” and that same bacteria is now better known as Helicobacter pylori. In 1925, James Young wrote on it (at a time when stomach cancers were the most active of cancers. . .) “Of all the diseases of man cancer has probably the most unique features; it has little direct contact at any point with other morbid processes, and, for that reason, analogy is of small positive help in a search for the cause. The essential fact which marks it off, is that, beginning in the proliferation of a small group of cells, it ends, when running its ordinary course, as a myriad host of anarchic cells destroying by direct inroad the healthy surroundings and burrowing often into the springs of life itself. Any class of cells in the body may be seized with this tragic impetus, and, according to their site of origin, so will the cancer differ in structure and, it may be, in deadliness; but in all, no matter what the origin, the same unique features dominate the process, in all we have a plague of riotous, cells spreading as a blight without control or cessation.” (Young, James, “A New Outlook On Cancer,” The British Medical Journal, Jan. 10, 1925, pages 60-64.)

 Young also wrote one other, highly important note. He stated: “One of the most important positive facts in regard to the etiology of cancer acquired within recent years concerns the role played by chronic irritation. The experimental production of cancer in animals by the exposure of the skin to' chemical irritants, of which there are now several, has lifted a long established clinical observation into the realm of proved laboratory fact. It can now be claimed with certainty that cancer can be induced by factors which vary as greatly in their nature as do tar, soot, arsenic, x rays, heat, etc. By some, these isolated and distinct irritant influences have been adduced as necessarily so many direct “causes” of this unique process. To many who have followed the specious arguments which have sometimes been advanced in support of this extraordinary claim it must come as a surprise that even distinguished observers may be negligent of the warning lessons of medical history. Sixty years ago to claim that the specific disease, phthisis (i. e., tuberculosis) of the lungs, had a multiplicity of direct causes was in keeping with - the knowledge of the, period. Thus it was believed that the inflammation of a bronchitis, the irritation of the inhaled fragments of stone with which the mason worked, etc., were each one a direct "cause" of pulmonary phthisis, and that there were many other causes as well-for example, heredity, unhealthy environment, etc. Time has shown that the greatly differing direct irritants and the other indirect agencies operate in one common way - by increasing cell and tissue susceptibility to the one common factor, the tubercle bacillus. In many other cases the history of medical progress has shown that, where several causes have been advanced to account for a disease, these have proved to be nothing more than factors preceding, and predisposing to, the single common agent.” (Young, James, “A New Outlook On Cancer,” The British Medical Journal, Jan. 10, 1925, page 65.)

  Indeed, it is the same story today! When it comes to stomach cancers, there is supposedly a whole list of things that cause ulcers and stomach cancers, and it all turns out to be caused by the transfer of DNA from the drug-resistant Helicobacter pylori bacteria. When tested for their cancer causing properties, researchers used the 20-year old archived blood samples of patients in a large sample who had eventually developed gastric malignancy were tested for antibodies to H. pylori, and then they compared that to samples of an otherwise similar, but cancer free control group. Statistical analysis of the data indicated that those infected with H. pylori at the time the blood was collected were up to six times more likely to have subsequently developed a malignancy. At that point, the connection of H pylori to stomach cancer became so certain that the World Health Organization International Agency for Research in Cancer classified it as a class I carcinogen. (Lynch, Nancy A., “Helicobacter pylori and Ulcers: a Paradigm Revised, University of Iowa College of Medicine, Dept of Pathology.) Another way to put it, at one time, before the process of homogenization was invented, stomach cancers were so prevalent that they were the leading cause of death in America. It is fairly obvious at this point that the milk fats in some instances actually contained DNA transferring bacteria from the Clostridium family – and the transferable DNA from these milk fat bacteria were what was causing the stomach cancers. In other words, stomach cancers narrowed down to being caused only by H. pylori, more than 40 years ago, after homogenization put an end to what was once the most deadly disease in America.

  After that, then smoking became the number one killer – which leads to the conclusion that even this disease is actually caused by a very similar type of DNA transferring, drug resistant bacteria. These bacteria commonly grow and inhabit the major air ways, where it tend to often transfer its DNA into the same type of cells lining certain frequently damaged tissues within the smoker's lungs.

  And what about those persons who do not smoke, but they are subjected to second hand smoke? Incredibly, the transferable DNAÂ’s that causes the lung cancers are so vastly small, that they could be easily carried about or transferred on nothing more than a tiny smoke particle! And what about those smokers who smoke and smoke and smoke, and they seem to never get sick? Those persons are extremely fortunate or just plain lucky in that, there was a time when they too became infected, but their immune system caught it in time, set up the proper antibodies, and they will never be sick with this form of cancer. Are they then, “carriers” of the cancer causing drug resistant bacteria? There is every probability that they actually are a “carrier,” just as surely as any person may actually become a “carrier” of TB.

 In conclusion, just as stomach cancers were discovered to be caused by drug resistant Helicobacter pylori, the fact is that H. pylori IS AN INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT BACTERIA TO ISOLATE AND DECTECT – YET IT HAS THE ABILITY TO TRANFER DNA - which is known to result in rapidly growing, drug-resistant, stomach malignancies, etc., Hence, this points to the fact that there are, of course, other drug resistant bacteria WITH THIS VERY SAME ABILITY TO TRANSFER DNA,” which are responsible for the many other cancers and tumors. In other words, to briefly paraphrase what was once observed by James Young, several causes have been advanced to account for the various tissues in which the disease of cancer emerges, and all those have proved to be nothing more than factors preceding, and predisposing to, a single common agent – the transfer of DNA into a cell from a drug resistant bacteria. Hence, cancers and tumors are caused by the DNA modules (i. e., plasmid DNA) that has become active after being passed into a cell, from a drug-resistant bacteria.” In brief, this also means that every oncogene now listed by various scientists around the world, is actually composed of one of these little packets of transferable DNAÂ’s, and that cell-directing material is simply being integrated into a given cell, once that particular cell divides. To be strictly scientific, this explains each oncogene whether it refers to a cancer causing oncogene or not. When the cell becomes cancerous, nowadays the researchers say that the cellÂ’s genes are “potentially oncogenes” and the term has thus shifted to protooncogenes. It doesn't matter what itÂ’s called, simply put, the transfer of drug resistant DNA causes the cells genes to become cancerous – by causing any of a variety of changes, such as over-expression, under-expression, mutation, inactivation, differing substrates, different affinity for substrate, etc. and so this identifies were all the various oncogenes come from. In other words, every tissue has itsÂ’ own ecological values - which match those of the environment required by certain strains of the various types of DNA transferring bacteria, and this is the basic cause of cancers, tumors, and each of a long list of other, gene related diseases.

Video Gives Straight Talk About Oral Cancer and Transmission of HPV

Video Gives Straight Talk About Oral Cancer and Transmission of HPV

In a new graphic video, Boston cosmetic dentist Dr. Helaine Smith gives "just the facts" about the link between the rise in oral cancer rates and HPV, a sexually transmitted disease.

West Roxbury, MA (PRWEB) September 17, 2010

A passionate advocate for educating people about oral health and sexual health, Dr. Helaine Smith has released a new video, Sex Facts and HPV (http://www. helainesmithdmd. com/2010/09/new-video-sex-facts-and-hpv-please-forward/).

Although sexually graphic, "Sex Facts and HPV" also contains important health information regarding the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and its link to the rise in oral cancer rates. Researchers have determined that HPV causes cervical cancer in women and because it’s spread through skin-to-skin contact, including kissing and oral sex, it is also believed to be behind the dramatic rise in the rates of oral cancer among young adults, an age group traditionally not at risk for oral cancer.

“I created this video because few mainstream media outlets will discuss why we’re seeing a rise of oral cancer rates in young adults,” says Dr. Helaine Smith. “They’ll discuss how young girls are engaging in sexual activities at younger and younger ages or will occasionally feature a young woman with oral cancer. But few media outlets come out and state what the medical community knows: HPV is being transmitted via oral sex – and many young adults and teens engage in this behavior. It’s not something we like to talk about, but we must if we’re to get the message out and help ensure this age group understands the risks and takes the proper precautions.”

The first line of defense in diagnosing oral cancer is the dentist office, something that Dr. Smith explains in "Sex Facts and HPV." Many dentists now perform oral cancer screenings as part of a routine dental check-up. An oral cancer screening includes looking for sores and white spots inside a patient’s mouth, behind the tongue, and on the lips. Dentists also check for lumps in the neck and throat.

The video can be viewed at Dr. Smith’s YouTube channel (http://www. youtube. com/helainesmithdmd) or at her Healthy Body, Healthy Smiles blog (http://www. helainesmithdmd. com/2010/09/new-video-sex-facts-and-hpv-please-forward/).

According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 3 million teens are sexually active and one in four will get a sexually transmitted disease, including HPV. A recent report in the journal Cancer notes that the cause for the rise in oral cancer is due to a particular strain of HPV. The rise in oral cancer due to this strain has increased in men from 30 percent to 60 percent in the last 10 years.

Over 25% of the 34,000 Americans annually diagnosed with oral cancer die of the disease – or one every hour of every day -- which claims more lives than melanoma and cervical cancer. The death rate for oral cancer is relatively high because the disease is not detected early enough. In fact, people will go months and even a year with a persistent sore throat or a large lump in the neck or throat before being examined by a physician. Hollywood move star Michael Douglas, for example, was diagnosed with stage four oral cancer.

In addition to her video, Dr. Smith has developed e-books, a blog and a forum at her Website (http://www. helainesmithdmd. com) in order to educate consumers about good oral health care.

About Dr. Helaine Smith
A passionate advocate for educating consumers about dentistry, Helaine Smith, DMD owns two thriving dental offices – a cosmetic dental spa and a family dental practice – both in the Boston area. Dr. Smith is the author of the popular “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Sex!” e-book, featured in the book, World Wide Rave (Wiley, 2009), by best selling author David Meerman Scott.

Online Magazine Offers a Different Kind of Support for Vegetarian Teens

Online Magazine Offers a Different Kind of Support for Vegetarian Teens

Vegetarianteen. com Online Magazine for vegetarian and vegan teens and their parents was launched this week. It's not only a place where teens and their families can find information and support, but an outlet for veg teens to express themselves through their writing.

(PRWEB) August 27, 2002

This week saw the launch of an exciting new website aimed at educating and providing support for teenagers who have decided to adopt a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. Vegetarian Teen Online Magazine (www. vegetarianteen. com) also offers parents advice and information regarding the healthful, life-giving diet their children have chosen. Since much of the site’s content is “by teens, for teens,” it is also a place where young people can publish their thoughts and experiences relating to vegetarianism.

“I finally found an appropriate forum in which to express my ‘alternative’ ideas. The website content is absolutely great! I am a sophomore in high school, and my peers are not that supportive of my animal activism. I think a lot of veg teens are going through the same thing,” says Ava Wolfberg, age16.

There has been a dramatic increase in the number of people, especially teenagers, who have turned to vegetarian or vegan lifestyles. Computers and obtaining information from the Internet has also become very popular. Melanie Wilson, owner/editor of both Vegetarian Teen Online Magazine and Vegetarian Baby and Child Magazine (www. vegetarianbaby. com), saw an opportunity to offer support and education through the World Wide Web.

“I wanted to create a site just for vegetarian teens that would address them differently than those already in existence. I envisioned a site that not only included the standard nutrition information, but nutrition for pregnant teens; articles on controversial subjects like eating disorders; support and information for parents; interviews done by teens; activism articles; an editorial area; cruelty-free fashion and eco-friendly living ideas; message boards; book, music and product reviews; and anything else we could think of!” says Wilson.

To help establish a safe online environment, writers are allowed to use pseudonyms and the staff of Vegetarian Teen Online Magazine fields all outside communications. All of the contributors published on the site have a parental consent form on file with the staff stating the policies of VegetarianTeen. com, copyright information, and their commitment to maintaining the integrity of this site.

Currently, there are two adult volunteers on staff – Wilson and Lucy Watkins, Vegetarian Baby & Child magazine’s interview and activism editor - and approximately 60 young people contributing ranging in age from 11 to 26. “This is a labor of love,” states Watkins. “We have a motivated group of contributors who are passionate about animal rights, the environment, social activism, and vegetarianism. They have really renewed my sense of commitment to the movement, and I think they will affect positive changes with their work.”

Visiongain Report Places Pfizer at Pivotal Moment

Visiongain Report Places Pfizer at Pivotal Moment

Pfizer, the world’s first druggernaut, has sales of over $52 billion and profits of $14 billion and showed 17 percent growth from 2003 to 2004, far above the industry average. However, according to the latest visiongain report specifically focussed on the drug company, the next five years may not be as positive.

(PRWEB) November 4, 2005

Pfizer owns the patents to some of the world’s top drugs, including ten blockbusters (drugs with over $1 billion annual sales revenue), but the company is about to lose the patent protection to a number of key products, and consequently suffer significant income loss in a very short space of time. Patent protection is key to the product life span of drugs for the pharmaceutical industry, and is usually granted for a period of 20 years.

Lipitor, the world’s best-selling drug, will have patent protection until at least 2009, but is producing such high revenues that the generic companies are itching to gain some of the market share. Pfizer has already lost one patent court battle for Lipitor, admittedly in the relatively insignificant Austrian market. Even the market strength of Viagra is wilting as competitors take its market share.

“Although recent Q3 results from Pfizer were not as positive as many in the industry were expecting, they were not a surprise,” says Tristan Heath pharmaceutical market analyst at visiongain. “Whilst Pfizer have dominated the pharmaceutical industry in recent years, the latest downturn in sales and future profit warnings from Pfizer were predicted by visiongain in our latest report – Pfizer, Current Challenges and Future Difficulties, 2005-2010.”

Pfizer has not given up, and this year plans to spend a staggering $8 billion on research and development. However its search for the next blockbuster is not an easy one and visiongain doubts whether Pfizer will rely on their research alone for continued success. The $60 billion Pharmacia merger propelled Pfizer to the top but was a mixed blessing. Pfizer gained the rights to the painkilling blockbusters, Bextra and Celebrex, but these have suffered under the Vioxx scandal. Visiongain believes that Pfizer will look for other mergers to satisfy the demand for further growth.

As health authorities, particularly in the US and EU, try to reduce their expenditure on drugs still further, this visiongain report explores the key issues for Pfizer and how it plans to remain the most influential drug company in the world today.

Notes for editors: To receive your complimentary overview of - Pfizer, Current Challenges and Future Difficulties, 2005-2010 - Please, telephone Sara on +44 (0) 20 8767 6711 or visit www. visiongain. com.

ALine's Laminate Fabrication Process provides Unique Solution for Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Sample Cells Used to Determine Protein Structure in Solution

ALine's Laminate Fabrication Process provides Unique Solution for Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Sample Cells Used to Determine Protein Structure in Solution

Custom Protein Sample Cell, developed for Cornell researchers, combines improved throughput with ease of use. An important and new technique in protein structure determination is made possible with Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS).

Redondo Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2007

An important and new technique in protein structure determination is made possible with Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS). Its application is increasing exponentially, and provides a powerful tool which, when used in combination with other techniques, allows elucidation and correlation of the functional and structural domains of different classes of proteins and protein complexes in solution. The tedious task of filling and sealing precious samples of concentrated protein was simplified with an easy-to-use cell designed and developed by ALine (http://www. alineinc. com (http://www. alineinc. com)) in collaboration designed and developed by ALine in collaboration with Nozomi Ando, a graduate student in Sol Gruner's group at Cornell University.

"We had wonderful results with the SAXS cells you recently designed with Nozomi Ando; a paper has already been published," remarked Dr. Gillilan, staff scientist for the MacCHESS Facility at Cornell about the sample cell. Dr. Gillilan further noted, "Your adhesive laminate [used to bond the mica film] is the main reason the cells have worked so well for us."

The paper, reporting results with ALine's " 'homemade' cuvette of a plastic micromachined disk" with its precision bio - micro-fluidic technology, was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, and is referenced here. J Biol Chem. 2006 December 15; 281(50): 38122-38126.
Http://www. jbc. org/cgi/content/full/281/50/38122 (http://www. jbc. org/cgi/content/full/281/50/38122)

Dr. Leanna Levine, CEO and Founder of ALine, commented, "These custom cells are another example of the advantage our fabrication platform has in providing researchers and product developers a unique bio micro solution that is either impossible or prohibitively expensive to accomplish any other way. In this case the added functionality of the pressure sensitive adhesive on the top and the bottom of the cell eliminated the messy and error-prone step of manually gluing a thin mica Xray window film to the cell. ALine's transparent polymer laminate layers also aided the research team in filling the devices with their protein solution samples."

The custom bio micro cell fabricated using ALine 's unique laminate manufacturing platform, pictured here, is about the size of a dime. The channel leading from the outer edge to the center is used for sample introduction, and the notches on either side facilitate insertion into synchrotron.

Using ALine's batch fabrication process, 500 cells were manufactured in a single run. The up-coming fabrication run will incorporate design changes to make sample introduction easier, highlighting the flexibility of ALine's unique laser patterned, polymer laminate fabrication platform that naturally accommodates further customization without additional investments in unnecessarily expensive re-tooling, common to other manufacturing methods.

Monterey County is nationally known as a birding hotspot, with hundreds of shore birds and migrating species living and feeding at Elkhorn Slough, Lake San Antonio, Pinnacles National Monument and Big Sur throughout the year. Volunteers for this year's event, April 29-30, spotted 250 species of birds in the county, including the roadrunner, bald eagle, albatross and tufted puffin.

MONTEREY'S GOLDEN STATE THEATRE RETURNS TO GRANDEUR

When the Golden State Theatre (www. goldenstatetheatre. com), at the center of Monterey's historic Alvarado Street, opened in 1926, it was the largest theater between San Francisco and Los Angeles and could hold 25% of MontereyÂ’s population. Designed to look like a Moorish castle, its Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ and internal/external telephone system were just some of the modern amenities in the theater and performance center. The original pipe organ was sold and the space divided for movies in the 1950s and beyond; it was not until 1992 that volunteers and investors began the quest to replace the organ and restore the Golden State to its original magnificence. In May 2005 the theatre re-opened, and is now operating as a live performance and film venue, complete with a "new" 1928 Mighty Wurlitzer. A schedule is available at www. goldenstatetheatre. com.

Limu PLUS with Fucoidan and Adaptogens *Now Great Tasting Kids, Love It Too!

Limu PLUS with Fucoidan and Adaptogens *Now Great Tasting Kids, Love It Too!

Natives on the Pacific island of Tonga have known the energizing benefits of the sea plant they call Limu Moui.* Limu Moui is no ordinary plant. It's packed with the vitamins, minerals and other life-giving substances.

(PRWEB) January 25, 2004

Fucoidan-rich Limu Moui nectar from Royal Kingdom of Tonga has been used for over 3000 years by natives of Tonga to rejuvenate, restore health, and boost immune system naturally to relieve symptoms and many health conditions associated with aging and exposure to stress.

Since the earth's soil has been depleted from worthwhile nutrients by over cultivation and chemical bombardment, our next and last resource for real nourishment is the ocean and its sea plants and kelp beds.

LimuPLUS is the richest formulation of limu moui on the planet. Each ounce contains a whopping 8500 mgms of limu moui PLUS adaptogens. It is a potent nectar extracted from the Limu Moui plant harvested from the pristine waters in the Pacific Ocean just off the coast of TONGA.

The LIMU MOUI plant is processed in the U. S.A. for marketing throughout the world.

The flavor of LimuPLUS is delicious. You simply take two Tbsps in the morning or in the evening. You will enjoy maximum benefits by taking just one ounce per day, and you will not realize greater benefits by taking more. And it tastes so good, that your children will drink it willingly every day.

Scientific study has shown that Limu Moui contains a veritable storehouse of natural minerals and vitamins, glyconutrients, amino acids and polysaccharides that can help support immune function. Limu Moui's main ingredient is Fucoidan, which according to prominent Japanese researcher Dr. Kyosuke Owa is said to "contain the same healing antibodies found in mother's milk, providing essential amino acids and a balanced diet of minerals necessary to boost the immune system.

Did you know that Limu contains Amino Acids and Glycoproteins, Essential Fatty Acids, Glyconutrients, Polyphenols( like those in the powerful Green Tea), Colloidal Minerals, Vitamins, Enzymes and the polysaccharide Fucoidan, the primary active chemical component.

Amino Acid support: body building blocks, provides "essential amino acids" that the body cannot create on its own and glycoproteins to help the body defend itself.

Essential Fatty Acid Support: key to eye and brain health, normal mental functioning and normal blood sugar ranges.

Other nutrients provide and encourage immune function.

Powerful antioxidant polyphenols : address heavy metals; support healthy hair, nails and skin; eases digestive ability; and addresses the aging process.

Powerful minerals that are easily absorbed help conduction of other nutrients and assist with toxin removal.

Plant enzymes assist literally every bodily function since vitamins, minerals and hormones can't work without their support. Enzymes also help to build our bodies and digest and absorb nutrients.

The primary active phytochemical, FUCOIDAN, is reported to be the subject of some 300 studies and is said to: enhance immunity; assist with joints, blood function, digestion, liver support, stomach function, skin and cellular growth--among others!

Adaptogens are a rare class of plant first identified by Russian scientists in their quest for the key to improved human performance. According to these researchers, adaptogens help restore the bodyÂ’s overall capacity for exertion and resistance to stress.*

Today's American Medical Association (AMA) says that as many as 80% of health challenges may be related to stressors.

The Limu Plus™ adaptogen blend helps support:

Better focus, mental energy, stamina, enhanced sleep, mood improvement, better attention to detail, improvement in the aging process, less toxicity, cellular balance, antioxidant capability.* And, over your lifetime it enhances:

Human potential, endurance, health, longevity, protection for vital organs, plus, the ability for the body to modify its biological responses!

These are just some of the aliments that taking Limu Moui juice has helped:

Abrasions, colon disease, hyperactivity, prostate disease, allergies, congestion, hypoglycaemia, rashes, arthritis, constipation, hypothyroid, respiratory infection, atherosclerosis, depression, immune dysfunction, sinusitis, autoimmune, diseases, diabetes, indigestion, skin disorders, backlashes, ear aches, insomnia, sore throats, bladder infections, eye inflammations, liver disorders, strep infections, boils, fever, menstrual cramps, stroke, bowel disorders, fibromyalgia, mood disorders, toothaches, burns, gingivitis, mouth sores, tumours, cancer, headaches, obesity, ulcers, chronic fatigue, heart disease, pain, wounds, weak circulation, herpes (cold sores), parasites, yeast infections, colds, and flu hypertension, peritonitis, high cholesterol,

'Mommy Makeover' Cosmetic Surgery in Philadelphia Increasingly Popular

'Mommy Makeover' Cosmetic Surgery in Philadelphia Increasingly Popular

Moms in Philadelphia have a new secret to a confident look after pregnancy. Dr. Mark P. Solomon has seen an increase in women considering post-pregnancy liposuction, labiaplasty or breast augmentation in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 6, 2009

Respected Pennsylvania plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Solomon recently launched an enhanced Web site (http://www. marksolomonmd. com (http://www. marksolomonmd. com)) that helps mothers understand options like post-pregnancy liposuction, labiaplasty, or breast augmentation in Philadelphia and choose the procedures that match their needs most effectively. These procedures have become increasingly popular at his practice in recent months.

"There are many reasons why more and more women are interested in 'mommy makeover' cosmetic surgery in Philadelphia," says board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Solomon. "My expanded Web site outlines the full range of procedures available, and even helps women determine if they are candidates for surgery. Making changes to your body is a very private decision and I want to help women feel good about their choices."

Dr. Solomon's Web site includes valuable information about other popular mommy makeover procedures like breast lift and liposuction in Philadelphia. These procedures allow him to correct many of the unwelcome results of breastfeeding and childbirth and restore smooth, youthful contours. Dr. Solomon also implements cutting-edge technologies like his exclusive BodyTight® laser treatment, which offers aesthetic and technical advantages over traditional liposuction.

"Cosmetic surgery is making it easier for women who want to 'have it all' - the beautiful body and the beautiful family," adds Dr. Solomon. "I've found that my patients who are mothers have special concerns about surgery and recovery, and I take the time to address these concerns fully during the consultation. Of course, achieving satisfying results is what ultimately creates a lot of buzz and I think that contributes to the number of moms coming to my practice to explore their cosmetic options."

Dr. Solomon's Web site highlights some of the key decisions women need to make to plan for good cosmetic surgery results. For example, it is important for moms in particular to understand the different objectives of liposuction and tummy tucks, as well as which type of breast implant may be best suited to restore breast fullness after pregnancy. Dr. Solomon's online photo gallery shows real results he has been able to achieve and gives prospective patients a better understanding of their procedure options.

"I want to educate and equip all my patients to make decisions that match up with healthy, reasonable goals," says Dr. Solomon. "I expanded the resources on my Web site to offer some first steps to help women and men feel more confident about their decisions and about their body shape."

Dr. Mark P. Solomon (http://www. marksolomonmd. com (http://www. marksolomonmd. com)) is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and performs cosmetic surgery in Philadelphia including breast enhancements, liposuction, facial rejuvenation, and body contouring procedures. After graduating from the New York University School of Medicine, he completed both a general surgery and plastic surgery residency before training through an additional plastic surgery fellowship at Hopital Necker Enfants Malades in Paris, France. He was one of the first plastic surgeons to offer treatments for laser hair removal and utilizes advanced techniques in a variety of procedures to provide highly individual results.

ACTS Retirement-Life Communities (http://www. actsretirement. org/) offers the following tips proven to help older adults maintain their health and vitality throughout their senior years:

1. Help Others. Volunteer, participate in a charity event, or simply visit a friend to see how they are doing. When you help others you also help yourself in ways that contribute to overall health.

2. Stay Positive. A positive outlook contributes to lower stress levels and other chronic health conditions common among seniors. Focus on all the things you are thankful for, and don’t fret the small stuff.

3. Keep Mentally Fit. Exercise your mind by doing a crossword puzzle, playing memory games on a computer, or taking classes. Continue to challenge yourself and never stop learning.

4. Walk More. Wear a step counter and walk at least 5,000 to 10,000 steps per day and at a comfortable pace. Add variety to your routine, and walk with a buddy or group to keep motivated. Be sure to get medical clearance before starting any exercise program.

5. Pray. Research suggests that those who pray every day have a greater sense of well-being. Cultivate your spiritual life in prayer and meditation.

6. Eat Balanced Meals. Eat at least 3 balanced meals throughout the day without skipping a meal. Eat slower and enjoy your food. 

7. Take a Nap. Rest rejuvenates the body. Take a 20 minute nap if you feel like you need it, and don’t feel guilty about it.

ACTS Retirement-Life Communities (http://www. actsretirement. org/) is a not-for-profit senior living organization with a mission of serving the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of older adults.
