10 Scientific Ways Antioxidants help our health

There’s no doubt that you’ve heard about antioxidants affecting your health at one point or another. However, what do antioxidants have to do with staying healthy? Overall, antioxidants are minerals and vitamins that especially work to protect our bodies from free radicals, which are dangerous molecules that work to attack our healthy cells and weaken the health of our immune systems. According to research, free radicals can increase your risk of cancer, brain disease, cataracts, and more. However, with the help of antioxidants, your body can rid itself of these free radicals and promote good health. These antioxidants include beta-carotene, lutein, catechins, vitamins C and E, flavonoids, and others that can be found in both food and dietary supplements. But, before you consider taking an antioxidant supplement, consult with your doctor, since they can interact with certain medications. Below, is a guide on the top 10 scientific ways how antioxidants help our health, which may give you the bump to start taking them regularly and making them part of your daily diet. 1) Antioxidants Help …

The Truth about Green Juices & Smoothies

Are you always opting for a green juice or smoothie to accompany or replace your meal instead of ingesting the vegetables itself? If you are a wellness champion doing this regularly, you must read on to ensure that you are drinking the right greens for your long term health! Drinking green juices and smoothies is becoming an uptrend among health aficionados, who believe that drinking them every day or a few times each week is healthy and helps in alkalising the body. This is also especially so with numerous celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Blake Lively who swear by this special diet that makes them feel energised, enjoy glowing skin and shed pounds effortlessly. “Kale, celery, apple, cucumber and a squeeze of lemon. I make my own juice every day at home. It really makes a difference. I can feel my body – everything’s going to way it should and I then I don’t feel guilty if I don’t get to eat my five a day of vegetables.”[1]             …

Vitamin C and Cancer – Research

“Many studies have been made over the years with the following results shown: Treatment with high-dose vitamin C slowed the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, malignant mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, and other types of cancer cells. Combining high-dose vitamin C with certain types of chemotherapy may be more effective than chemotherapy alone: Ascorbic acid with arsenic trioxide may be more effective in ovarian cancer cells. Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine may be more effective in pancreatic cancer cells. Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) may be more effective in malignant mesothelioma cells. Another laboratory study suggested that combining high-dose vitamin C with radiation therapy killed more glioblastoma multiforme cells than radiation therapy alone. Additionally the studies found that patients who received IV vitamin C had better quality of life and fewer side effects than those who did not.” — The Demster Clinic, Toronto Source: http://www.thedempsterclinic.com I get a lot of enquiries on Vitamin C and cancer from my previous entry on my Vitamin C IV drip experience. As such, I decided to share a bit about my summarized research on Vitamin C and cancer and why I was willing to let my mum (and myself – just for health …

If you or your loved ones have a Mercury Dental filling, read this!

I have always viewed mercury dental fillings as a norm of life. I don’t have them because I was vain and opted for composite fillings because they were prettier, but everyone else in my family have mercury dental fillings. However, when I brought my mum to the integrated oncology clinic, the first question the doctors asked her was whether she had mercury fillings and she was to remove them immediately! The episode made me think – if they deliver new mercury to dentists in a “bio-hazard” box to make fillings, and they also transport mercury away from the dentists after removal in a “bio-hazard” box to ensure no poisoning, WHY is the only safe place for mercury in our mouths? Video: This dramatic video of mercury vapor leaking gas from a “silver amalgam” dental filling has outraged the world since it was first demonstrated at an International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) meeting in 1995. Mercury may be odorless, colorless, tasteless and toxic, but mercury vapor casts a shadow in black light! Mercury is not …

What Causes Cancer? A shocking truth..

I was shocked the first time I heard how and WHY cancer happened. I was also surprised that the medical doctors I have met throughout this journey never explained to me WHY cancer happens at the first place, because we need to know the WHY to get to the prevention/improvement. This 8 minute video by Shafin de Zane explains well the cancer happens at the first place because our cells are trying to protect itself by mutating, otherwise it would die because it is swimming in a sea of toxins. And also, it shares how cancer can be prevented quite easily. Please do watch this and share with others! Here are many other great video resources to encourage cancer patients and their family! My mum and I watched a lot of encouraging videos during her recovery journey that not just lifted our spirits, but also educated our minds. These are great videos on health for everyone, really.

Vitamin C (Intravenous) – Cancer Treatments

Similar to what you are probably thinking now, I was highly skeptical that high dose intravenous (IV) Vitamin C could reverse cancer. We eat food with vitamin C everyday in our diets and supplements. If Vitamin C were so good, it would have prevented cancer from developing in the first place, right? And hospitals around the world should be using this method by now! But I decided to keep an open mind to research in scientific and medical papers on how Vitamin C works, and I am glad I did because I discovered from the National Cancer Institute that: “Vitamin C has been studied as a treatment for patients with cancer since the 1970s. A Scottish surgeon named Ewan Cameron worked with Nobel Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling to study the possible benefits of vitamin C therapy in clinical trials of cancer patients in the late 1970s and early 1980’s.” “Laboratory studies have shown the following: Treatment with high-dose vitamin C slowed the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, malignant mesothelioma, and other types of cancer cells.
