Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Public health services for women, or an all month giant commercial promotion for cancer industry and their products
The month of October is designated breast cancer awareness month. For many, it is not just an awareness, but also a reflective month on astronomical number of breast cancer fallen loved ones—our mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces, granddaughters, and friends. Since the designation, the month of October also invokes folks’ emotional hurt, sense of inner emptiness and reflection of inner wounds that linger for a long time and for some, to life’s final stage of growth. The question remains in many minds what the public really knows about the true causes of breast cancer. Many often wonder whether there are existing cures for breast cancer as well as other types of cancer. Read More
Health Miracles of Happiness: Learn ways happy state of existence impact optimum wellness and healing of your mind, body, and spirit
Empirical evidence from the beginning of time predicate good health and wellness on healthy nutrition, life style, and positive emotion.

Mental Health Crisis Among The United States Military Population: A classic example of attempting to solve complex human psychic disturbances with junk mental health science
Wisdom and mark of human intelligence is the ability to recognize when old and orthodox ways of solving problems fail to meet the test of time, and have the insight to muster courage to make changes in the right direction. I have been reporting on the fact that the orthodox clinical modalities used in resolving human psychic disturbances among men and women who serve their nations in the military have not proven the test of time. These old ways have proven ineffective. We see evidence of this among veteran population of old wars for example Vietnam, who are still suffering from diagnosed “PTSD” and other multiple complex battlefield induced psychic disturbance (BFIPD). We are now also witnessing even more serious multiple complex issues among this generation of soldiers among which is epidemic of suicide. Read More
Aging Process And The Implications Of Managing Health With Cabinet Full Of Chemicals: Learn cancer connection to aging and excessive chemical management of health
Wise folks form the part of the world I grew up have an adage, which states, “If a young man does not take time to learn what killed his father, he would also die from the very same cause that claimed his father’s life.” Youth promotes a sense of invisibility and exuberance. At a young age, the thoughts of growing old rarely cross the mind of younger population. Young people tend to follow in their families’ traditions on varieties of values ranging from life style and belief system to health practice and family values, even in cases where some of these values are detrimental to good health and quality of life.

Clinical Faces of Young People Growing Up In Our Chemically Managed Society: Learn the health and wellness consequences of early introduction of chemicals in a young person’s life and long term mind, body, spirit implications
Infancy is a critical developmental stage. This developmental stage requires careful nourishing attention on the health of an infant. The wrong type of care and nourishment during this early stage of life could be the difference between a healthy human being, and an unhealthy disturbed life. One can make a serious case that the most health healing nourishment for an infant is the mother’s milk. In most cultures outside the West, mother’s milk is the primary nourishment for an infant baby for a good number of months. In these cultures, there are extremely low cases of childhood developmental and neurological issues such as severe cognitive functions, autism etc. A primary developmental issue in some of these cultures is malnutrition indicative of economic struggles and climatic erosion of agricultural infrastructures in some of the countries within these cultures.

Medical Exploitation and Abuse of Women: Learn cancer connection among women from this exploitation and abuse.
Medical medicine over the century held women’s health hostage. Historically, all era grossly misunderstood women and women’s health. This gross misunderstanding, and to some degree simple ignorance, dating back to the beginning of time lend to too many unhealthy myths about women and women’s healthy. Women’s lives have not been the same from the time man first became aware of female menstruation. Menstruation, which is one of the most important natural characteristics, that make women the most beautiful and powerful creatures on God’s planet also made women endangered species.
Reviews of literature on early life of women including the Old Testaments, and various ancient books of history reveal women suffered enormously. Men subjected women to various levels of emotional and physical pain during monthly menstrual period. These historical accounts reveal that during those early dark ages of human evolution, female monthly menstruation forced isolation on women. Women were isolated from their husbands, families, and houses of worships during periods of menstruation. Read More
Dilemma of Clinical Use of Opiates in Pain Management: Learn appropriate clinical pain management with opiates, and integrated mind, body, spirit connection to healing and recovery
Question often arise concerning opiates use for pain management. Chemical use of pain management has proven over the years to cause serious negative health and life consequences for healthcare consumers. At the top of this many negative consequences is chemical dependency that leaves quality of life for many healthcare consumers and their loved ones in crisis, and in many cases less desirable.
In some cases, a physician has clinical need to halfway clinically kill his patient in the process medically known as sedation in order to restore the patient’s life or improve quality of life. Classic example is use of anesthesia in medical surgery. However, a physician does not have to continue the use of propofol for pain management following surgery. Read More
Cross Cultural Perspective on Clinical Causes and Cure for Cancer: Learn the Mind-Body-Spirit connection to causes and cure for cancer
Cancer has been equal opportunity killer for many years now. Cancer does not discriminate and does not care who it kills. It would be very difficult to find many people who have not suffered a loss from cancer. It would also be difficult to find a person who does not know someone, a close friend or relative who is not currently suffering from cancer. According to Center for Medicine and Medicaid Services (CMMS) United States of American spends over 2.5 trillion dollars on health care (CMMS, 2009). This cost translates to 17.6% of US Gross Domestic Products (GDP). Let us be very clear about this, this figure is not going down. It is exponentially going up. Time will determine what effect if any the recent reform on health care will have on this number.
Most other industrialized nations spend about half or a little less than half of what US spends on health. Japan for example spends about 8.1% of her GDP on health care. Of this over 2.5 trillion dollar spent on health care in US, 263.8 billion dollars according to American Cancer Society (2010) is spent on cancer care alone. According to the same report 571,950 Americans were expected or died of cancer in 2010 making cancer the second most cause of death right below heart disease. Read More
Battle Field Induced Psychic Disturbances (BFIPD): The cause, and why conventional Western treatment approaches for “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” (PTSD) are ineffective—Mind-Body-Spirit connection to healing of BFIPD.
I will begin by explaining to the readers that the term (BFIPD) is not a disorder in The American Psychiatric Association (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). It’s the term I have use to reflect the true nature of psychic disturbances people experience when exposed to horrific events of war either as soldiers or civilians. APA classified this in general term as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). From my clinical healing perspective and experience, war induced disturbances does not constitute disorder/s. It does not mean the individuals struggling with these experiences are mentally sick and need psychoactive medication to feel better.
I would also like to refresh the knowledge of the reader on three important components of a human being—the mind, body and spirit all interconnected to one. I will also explain what trauma is and how traumatic experience affects these levels of the body. My personal life experience and stories are shared in this text to elucidate the case made.
Trauma is any event or experience which could be physical, emotional or spiritual in nature that cause conflict or psychic effect within that region in every human being Jung once described as the collective unconscious. Trauma or psychic conflict occurs when the event or experience forces the conscious mind to address buried issues in the collective unconscious which the conscious mind was not prepared to address. In many cases, these issues surfacing to the conscious mind are past lives issues carried over to the present life buried deep inside the unconscious mind. Read More
