Nearly every day brings news of a breakthrough in cancer research. There are many interesting studies that you will read about. In your mind’s eye, see yourself involved with any cutting edge research that captures your attention. Be in­spired to keep up with the latest research and participate in your own way.

Recently there was major press about the “Cancer Bomb”, a new technique that is currently being tested in Israel for cancer tumors. (The Province December 14, 2011) It is essen­tially a pin-sized radioactive implant that beams short-range alpha particles from within the tumor to kill cancer cells. Rather than bombarding the tumor from the outside, this implanted device acts like a cluster bomb from within the tumor until it eventually disintegrates. Particles are continuously emitted from the implanted device. This new technique even causes a significant number of people to develop immunity against the return of the tumor, according to one statement.

Research is currently exploring the use of this technique, however research trials are limited- yet you have the ability to visualize this now!

Radioactive Implant Visualization:

* Focus your mind on the location of the tumor.

* Visualize injecting a pin-sized device directly into the tumor, which radiates out beams of pure white light.

* Know that this light is attracted like a magnet to every cell of the tumor.

* Generate the imaginary radioactive waves and particles then focus them on the tumor.

* In your mind’s eye see the tumor cells absorbing the waves of light until they die.

* Once all cancer cells are dead, see them disintegrate so there is no longer any evidence of any cancer ever being there. Change all of the surrounding cells to perfectly healthy cells again.

* KNOW that your intentions are influencing your healing.

Regular Yoga Practice May Help Prevent Middle-Age Spread February 15, 2008

Feb 15, 2008, Study suggests overweight people may benefit most from
yoga’s fat-fighting potential

SEATTLE – A new study led by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has found that regular yoga practice may help prevent middle-age spread in normal-weight people and may promote weight loss in those who are overweight.

The study – the first of its kind to measure the effects of yoga on weight – appears in the July/August issue of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine.

Funded by the National Cancer Institute, the study involved 15,500 healthy, middle-aged men and women who were asked to complete a written survey recalling their physical activity (including yoga) and weight history between the ages 45 and 55. The study measured the impact of yoga with weight change, independent of other factors such as diet or other types of physical activity.

The researchers found that between the ages of 45 and 55, most people gained about a pound a year, which is a common pattern as people age and do not adjust their caloric intake to their declining energy needs. “However, men and women who were of normal weight at age 45 and regularly practiced yoga gained about 3 fewer pounds during that 10-year period than those who didn’t practice yoga,” said Alan R. Kristal, Dr.P.H., the study’s lead author. For the study, regular yoga practice was defined as practicing at least 30 minutes once a week for four or more years.

But the researchers noted the greatest effect of regular yoga practice was among people who were overweight. “Men and women who were overweight and practiced yoga lost about 5 pounds, while those who did not practice yoga gained about 14 pounds in that 10-year period,” said Kristal, a member of the Hutchinson Center’s Public Health Sciences Division and a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine.

What accounts for yoga’s apparent fat-fighting potential? Kristal, himself a longtime yoga student, suspects it has more to do with increased body awareness than the physical activity itself.

“During a very vigorous yoga practice you can burn enough calories to lose weight, but most people don’t practice that kind of yoga,” he said. “From my experience, I think it has to do with the way that yoga makes you more aware of your body. So when you’ve eaten enough food, you’re sensitive to the feeling of being full, and this makes it much easier to stop eating before you’ve eaten too much.”

Study co-author Denise Benitez, owner of Seattle Yoga Arts, agrees. “Most people practice yoga in a way that’s not aerobic enough to burn a lot of calories, so it has to be some other reason.”

One reason, she speculates, could be that yoga cultivates a form of gentle inner strength. “When we practice yoga, although it may look easy, there is some mild discomfort. You bring your body to a physical edge that’s just a little bit challenging. And people who regularly practice yoga develop the inner resources to stay with a little bit of discomfort. They develop a softness inside and an ability to stay mindful. So that when you go home after yoga class and open up the fridge and see a chocolate cake, you have the resources to stay with the discomfort of not eating that chocolate cake.”

Whatever the reason behind the apparent impact of yoga on weight maintenance and loss, Kristal stresses that these findings need to be replicated.

“I think it’s time now to do a carefully controlled, randomized clinical trial to see if adding yoga to a standard weight-loss program can help people lose more weight or keep it off longer. The other message, particularly to people who might be overweight, is that yoga is a noncompetitive activity. It’s something that everybody can do. It brings so many benefits, and if one of the clinical benefits is that it can help you control your weight, then that’s a great thing.”

The participants in the yoga study were part of a larger ongoing Hutchinson Center study involving more than 75,000 residents of western Washington called the Vitamins and Lifestyle, or VITAL, study. This $4.2 million project, which began in 2000, aims to determine whether vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements reduce the risk of cancer.

YOGA TIPS THAT MAY ENCOURAGE WEIGHT MAINTENANCE OR LOSS

Study co-author and yoga teacher Denise Benitez, owner of Seattle Yoga Arts, offers the following suggestions for enhancing one’s yoga practice. These tips may be particularly helpful for those who wish to maintain or lose weight:

Practice in a room without mirrors, and pay more attention to your internal experience than to your outer performance.
Learn to feel sensations more and more subtly, so that you become deeply involved in and curious about small movements, sometimes called micro-movements.
In your poses, find an edge for yourself where you are challenged but not overwhelmed. At this edge, practice maintaining a clear, open and accepting mental state.
Give yourself permission to rest when you feel overworked.
Pay close attention to what you are saying to yourself as you practice, and make an intentional effort to appreciate your own efforts and innate goodness.
Go to class faithfully, arrive early, and talk to a few people in your class before class begins.
Buy your own yoga mat and bring it to class.
Realize that the development of qualities like patience, discipline, wisdom, right effort, kindness, gratitude and many others will arise from your yoga practice. These qualities create a steady and soft mind.
Find a teacher who offers a balance of gentleness and firmness and whose teaching inspires you to practice from your highest self.
Recognize that simply attending class is a major statement of courage, self-care, and positive momentum. Realize that you are inspiring others as you become more true to your deepest desires. 

Brisk walking regime can alleviate stress in menopausal women January 5, 2008

Menopausal women who suffer from stress, anxiety or depression can benefit from undertaking a regular walking routine, new research suggests.

“With the aging population, physical activity represents one way for women to stay mentally healthy. Physical activity can help throughout the menopausal transition and afterwards,” Temple University public health researcher Deborah Nelson, the study’s lead author, said in a release.

The study is published in the January issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention.

Researchers tracked 380 women from Philadelphia, Pa., recruited between 1996 and 1997, for more than eight years. They were assessed on their levels of physical activity, and for symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and hot flashes.

The average age of the women was 42, and the group was evenly split between Caucasian and African-American women.

The study revealed that women who were postmenopausal benefited most from walking at a moderate pace — particularly African-American women.

After walking five days a week for an hour and a half at a speed of 6.5 km/h, they reported less stress and better emotional well-being. There was no reduction in hot flashes, the researchers noted.

“You don’t have to run 20 miles [32 kilometres] a week to reap the benefits of exercise. If you stick to a moderate-paced walking schedule, it can keep your body mass index down and lower the risk of stress, anxiety and depression,” Nelson said.

Beating insomnia the natural way December 10, 2007

Staring at the alarm clock again? Join the club: As many as 40 percent of women over age 40 battle insomnia at least a few nights a week, says the National Sleep Foundation. Sleeping pills may bring short-term relief, but these all-natural remedies that work with your body rhythms can help you drift into dreamland.

1. Restrict time in bed.

“Studies show that spending less time in bed than you actually want can help,” said Thomas Roth, director of the Sleep Disorders and Research Center at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

“You’ll fatigue your body and start to associate your bed with sleep instead of tossing and turning; then you can work up to dozing longer.”

Behavioral Rx: Track your nightly sleep. If it’s five hours a night, set your alarm for that. Once you’re sleeping most of that time, go to bed 15 minutes earlier until you reach the recommended 8 hours a night.

2. Try magnesium.

“This mineral helps the body make serotonin, which in turn produces melatonin, the brain chemical that sets your body ‘clock’ and helps the brain’s inhibitory neurotransmitters — the ones that help us relax — work more efficiently,” said naturopath Nicole Egenberger, clinic director at Remede Naturopathics in New York City.

Natural Rx: Take 200 to 300 milligrams of magnesium citrate daily with dinner. It works best when balanced with calcium, which aids absorption; take 400 milligrams of calcium daily with lunch.

3. Exercise in the early evening.

“A few hours after you work out, your parasympathetic nervous system kicks into gear, which slows heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing, signaling your body that you’re ready for sleep,” said Dr. Monica Myklebust, medical director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland.

Exercise Rx: Four hours before bed, take a brisk walk, swim, or do yoga for at least 30 minutes. To maximize the tiring effect of the workout, turn off the TV and computer two hours before you hit the sack.
