chiTai Chi helps chemo brain

For detailed info on all your cancer options see my two books –

Tai Chi helps chemo brain

‘Chemo brain’ is the condition of mental fuzziness that can last for years (and years) after chemotherapy treatment. Now a University of Missouri study seems to show that Tai Chi – done twice a week for an hour – had a significant impact in helping women improve their mentalfunctioning after only ten weeks.

Note: The Cancer Survivor’s Bible (2012) is now available – see

“This book gives hope. …I wish I had read this book before I was diagnosed. My doctors and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this.”

Boy is beating cancer through natural means

Isn;t it strange that the people who accept their doctor’s prognosis tend to die on schedule while those who take positive steps to try a range of alternative therapies so often confound their doctors – and yet the doctors refuse to accept the evidence of their own senses: Here is a story that gives us all hope:–survives-grandparents-alternative-therapy-treatments.html#ixzz1POE5ef28

“The section on conventional treatment was riveting.”

Thoughts on Stress

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 20, 2011

If you are looking for cancer related info, please browse this site – and read my two cancer books –

Thoughts on Stress

We think of stress as being caused mainly by anxieties when faced with problematic situations but as Mike Goldberg tellingly writes: “Stress is also caused by holding onto the painful past and having negative and impulsive reaction to stress factors. It is important to rest, get away from negative and toxic people and environments, avoid conflict and drama, stop watching the news, smile, listen to soothing music and focus on blessings and not lack. Love is a beautiful energy that reduces inner stress and helps bring inner peace and peace of mind.”

It also appears to be the case that the way our thoughts work can influence the way we are – and help us towards health. Read this article

Preventing strokes

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 17, 2011

For cancer information browse this site and read my books –

Prevention of stroke

There are two kinds of stroke: haemorrhagic and ischemic. Haemorrhagic occurs when a blood vessel breaks. To protect against this kind of stroke you need to ensure that your body’s tissues are strong – and that mean taking in large doses (3,000 mg plus) of vitamin C (ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate powder) per day.

Life Extension explains: “Ischemic stroke is responsible for 80 percent of all strokes (NINDS 2005). There are two kinds of ischemic stroke. The first, a thrombotic stroke, results from a blood clot (thrombus) forming in a vessel inside the brain and cutting off the blood supply to the tissues served by that vessel. The second, an embolic stroke, occurs when a clot forms somewhere else in the body, breaks off, and travels to the brain.”

My own recommendations

• A strong (ie very hot) cayenne pepper tincture (150,000 scofield units) I make my own by putting a handful of hot pepper in a litre of standard vodka

• Olive oil (cold pressed, extra virgin) – for cooking as well as salads, sauces etc

• Ginger – fresh ginger soaked in hot water
