The Million Women Study Fact Sheet

By on Feb 6, 2015 in Allergies, blog, Cancer, Hormones, Labs, Plants, Uncategorized, Women | 0 comments

Here I will summarize the blog post below.  There is a study that was done with a million women in England and what has been concluded is that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) causes cancer.  It is conclusive; end of summary.  Feel free to read through the post below for more details.    The Million Women Study was a national study of women’s health involving around one million UK women aged 50 and over. It was a collaborative project between Cancer Research UK and the National Health Service Breast Screening Program, with additional funding from the Medical Research Council, which aims to answer many outstanding questions about the factors affecting women’s health in this age group. The main focus of the study relates to the effects of hormone replacement therapy use, but the large size of the study means that a very broad range of health issues can be addressed. What was the Million Women Study investigating? The Million Women Study investigated how various reproductive and lifestyle factors affect women’s health. In particular, the study looked at how hormone replacement therapy affects a woman’s breasts and other aspects of her health. Other factors that were investigated were diet, childbirth, breastfeeding, vitamin and mineral supplement use, oral contraceptive use and family history of illness. Who took part in the study? Women were invited to join the Million Women Study when they received their invitation to attend breast screening at one of 66 participating NHS Breast Screening Centers in the UK. At these centers, women received a study questionnaire with their invitation, which they were asked to complete and return at the time of screening. Around 70%of those attending the program returned questionnaires and agreed to take part in the study—this excellent response means that over 1 in 4 women in the UK in the target age group participated in the study. It also means that the Million Women Study is the largest stufy of its kind in the world. Who is involved in conducting the study? The Million Women Study is a nationwide study coordinated by experienced researchers based in Oxford. Funds for the study have been provided by Cancer Research UK, the National Health Service Breast Screening Program and Medical...

Hormones and Hormone Labs

By on Dec 24, 2014 in Hormones, Labs, Women | 0 comments

Since I specialize in helping women with hormonal imbalances and people who have difficulty with their thyroid gland. I thought I would take the time to discuss hormones just a bit. Hormones exert a powerful influence over all physical, intellectual and emotional behavior. Problems with weight, memory, sleep, digestion, blood pressure, high cholesterol, cravings, addictions, sexual dysfunctions, and problems associated with the immune system, are all influenced by the endocrine system. Endocrine problems lead to a wide spectrum of symptoms that in most cases can be reversed using natural methods like those therapies used at Triad Of Health Family Healing Center. A primary marker of the aging process in both men and women is a reduction in normal hormone levels which is responsible in large part for infertility, decreased energy and muscle strength, loss of libido, depression, mood swings, inability to cope, and an increase in the symptoms of PMS and menopause. Research has shown that the use of natural hormone replacement might benefit a person over a short period of time. However, one needs to be careful when using hormone replacement therapy because any hormone used causes a biofeedback mechanism that leads to the body making less of the hormone being replaced. For example, if bio-identical estradiol is given to a woman, it causes cell receptor sites throughout the body to become more sensitive to estradiol due to the increase of estradiol in the blood. The increased cell receptor site sensitivity then causes the woman’s body to make less of the estradiol. The image below shows the receptor site which has received a hormone.  The receptor site is now temporarily “full” and cannot receive any more hormones.  The receptor site has become more “sensitive” to the hormone that it has received. Here we see a number of different glands that all work together synergistically like a very well harmonized and conducted orchestra.  Every player has its part to do.  If one of the glands is playing our of tune then this will affect all of the other glands.  This is why even relatively small hormonal imbalances can have major symptoms.  If the lab work done is not specific enough to reveal exactly what the hormonal (endocrine) imbalance is...

Hysterectomy: Power Morcellators

By on Aug 9, 2014 in blog, Cancer, Women | 0 comments

    Hysterectomy is the second most common medical procedure in the United States.   Below here is an image of a large ovarian cancer: Power Morcellators are a device that are commonly used in hysterectomies.  As you know, a hysterectomy is done when a woman experiences a disease of her ovaries or uterus.  The ovaries and/or uterus are removed or sometimes both are removed.  When both are removed this is called a “total hysterectomy.”  It would probably be a better idea to discover what is causing a woman to have disease of her reproductive organs and glands and then treat the cause of the disease in order that the disease go away rather than cutting out the actual glands and/or organs in the hope or guise that this is somehow accomplishing something or ridding the body of the disease.  “Out of sight, out of mind.”  As you may remember when there was the Exxon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the procedure used was to add a dispersant to the oil in order to break it down.  This “dispersant” caused the oil to be less easily seen.  The only difficulty was that the dispersant was far, far more toxic than the oil itself.  Within just a few years later people all over the region started dying and fish could not be eaten.  But, the oil could not be seen: “out of sight, out of mind.”   The Power Morcellators are used to cut tissue into small pieces to be removed from the body.  The problem occurs when the targeted tissues carry undetected cancer, the cancer is then spread within the abdomen and pelvis. Many women are battling uterine cancer as result of Power Morcellators being used during their hysterectomies, and shockingly, the average life span following accidental morcellation of sarcoma is only 24–36 months.  This is not a good thing.  This is bad.  The Hypocratic Oath says: “First, Do No Harm.” Death is very harmful to the health.  We do not recommend death at Triad Of Health Family Healing Center.    Johnson and Johnson, a very large manufacturer of Power Morcellators issued a voluntary return of the device.  Despite a loss in business and sales, their company...

Allergies and Women’s Health

By on Jul 26, 2014 in Allergies, Cancer, Women | 0 comments

          We now have a society that no longer makes sense.  I do my best to keep the blog posts focused on health, however, health encompasses all areas of life.  If we look at our government we see a great deal of sickness and disease – not just literally but metaphorically.  One of the greatest and most successful Free Enterprise governments ever to succeed on the planet is also deeply troubled.  The United States has troops in over 150 different countries.  Essentially, this means that the United States is at war with 150 different countries.  When Americans travel to Europe and elsewhere, often people from those countries are not happy with us.  I wonder why?  America is the only country to have used an atomic bomb during war time.  America is a lot like a modern day Roman Empire.  With all of the recent freedom limiting laws that have been created over the last 50 years, it seems unlikely that it is necessary for us to be at war with 150 different countries in order to protect our “freedom.”  In our society, successful actors and entertainers tend to get paid the most money whereas teachers and healers tend to get paid the least.  Does this not seem somewhat backwards to you?  Enormous corporations such as Monsanto have attempted to buy, brand, modify, take ownership over through patents, and market the food that we eat.  When smaller organic farmer’s end up with GMO pollens on their crops from the wind carrying the pollen there, they are sued by Monsanto for stealing their “patented” food technology.  Did we ever stop to consider whether or not the food should be altered?  Is the food that we eat – the produce that has naturally grown on the planet for the last 500,000 years – inherently defective?  No, of course not!  You can learn more about this subject in this book below:           Several weeks back I met a lady at the Downtown San Rafael Farmer’s Market who had an active growing tumor in her Parathyroid Gland.  The tumor had been there for quite some time.  I shared with her a little bit about what we do in the office and the amazing and awesome powerful therapies...

You Need A New Bra.

By on Jul 9, 2014 in Women | 0 comments

I never really know exactly what I am going to blog about until I start the blogging.  When it comes to women’s health issues, there are a number of things that just keep coming up for my patients again and again and again and again and again. Well over 70% of my new female patients are wearing bras just like these bras you see above here that do not support their health.  There.  I said it.  I am done.  Blog post over……  All kidding aside, what is it about these bras that cause so many difficulties?  These types of bras have underwire in them and the metal wire interferes with the energetic flow of the Chinese Acupuncture Meridian System.  As you might be able to see from the image here below, the Stomach, Spleen, Liver, Kidney, Central Vessel, Governing Vessel, Gallbladder, Bladder and other meridians travel right through the area of the bra.  These types of bras constrict the muscles and bones in the area in which the bra is placed and actually cause the bones in the region to become misaligned and subluxated.  These misalignments lead to difficulties with breathing, functioning of all of the organs listed, diaphragm dysfunction, difficulty with walking and nerve tracts going to and from the brain, reflexes such as the tonic labyrinthine reflex, etc…. A bra which supports a woman’s health should have the following basic components: It should NOT have an underwire. The person purchasing the bra should be properly measured / fitted prior to purchasing the bra.  Different women need different sized bras. The bra should be worn on the Loosest fitting / clasp / setting. Ideally, you should have a properly trained health care provider check the bra to make sure that it is a supportive bra for you. Much of this information about bras comes from the work of the late Dr. Victor Frank who began Total Body Modification which is now used world wide to support people with their health. Many chronic patients fail to respond well to care simply because they are wearing a bra that does not support their health. This information about Bras is HUGE!  I hope that you found it helpful.  If you would like...
