Latest Cancer Cure: Happiness!!

Posted on August 25, 2008. Filed under: health, wellbeing | Tags: , , , , |

Yes, that’s right happiness is the key to beating and prevention of cancer. I am so happy that the works of brave pioneers like Dr Bruce Lipton and others is now being validated by research. As I ‘cured’ myself of a so-called incurable disease, I know exactly how it is done.

Change the way you look at life and change your beliefs about life and yourself so that you are happy with your life. I chose to ‘live’ not just exist which meant a very great many changes in my life, yet here I am years later, no longer attached to a wheelchair and firing on all cylinders. I even danced at my daughters wedding.  My mum has had breast cancer 3 times and she knows the signs now, no not lumps or pain etc.. the signs of impending cancer are unhappiness and stress. My mum knows that if it goes on too long she will find her cancer markers are up. So now she knows what to do to avoid another cancer. If she can to it and I can do it anyone can and now the latest research is proving it to be true.

Happiness and optimism may play a role against breast cancer while adverse life events can increase the risk of developing the disease, according to a study by Professor Ronit Peled, at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel. An article on the study titled “Breast Cancer, Psychological Distress and Life Events among Young Women,” was just published in the British journal BMC Cancer (8:245, August 2008).

Researchers used this information to examine the relationship between life events, psychological distress and breast cancer among young women.

A total of 622 women between the ages of 25 and 45 were interviewed: 255 breast cancer patients and 367 healthy women. “The results showed a clear link between outlook and risk of breast cancer, with optimists 25 percent less likely to have developed the disease. Conversely, women who suffered two or more traumatic events had a 62 percent greater risk,” Peled said. “Young women who have been exposed to a number of negative life events should be considered an ‘at-risk’ group for breast cancer and should be treated accordingly.”

The researchers indicate that women were interviewed after their diagnosis, which may color their recall of their past emotional state somewhat negatively. However, according to Peled, “We can carefully say that experiencing more than one severe and/or mild to moderate life event is a risk factor for breast cancer among young women. On the other hand, a general feeling of happiness and optimism can play a protective role.”

“The mechanism in which the central nervous, hormonal and immune systems interact and how behaviour and external events modulate these three systems is not fully understood,” Peled states. “The relationship between happiness and health should be examined in future studies and relevant preventative initiatives should be developed.” Physorg.com

Young Girls Breast Cancer Risk, An Ounce of Prevention…

Posted on May 14, 2008. Filed under: Fitness, health | Tags: , , |

“Mothers, here’s another reason to encourage your daughters to be physically active: Girls and young women who exercise regularly between the ages of 12 and 35 have a substantially lower risk of breast cancer before menopause compared to those who are less active, new research shows.

In the largest and most detailed analysis to date of the effects of exercise on premenopausal breast cancer, the study of nearly 65,000 women found that those who were physically active had a 23 percent lower risk of breast cancer before menopause. In particular, high levels of physical activity from ages 12 to 22 contributed most strongly to the lower breast cancer risk.

The study, by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Harvard University in Boston, will be available online May 13 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

“We don’t have a lot of prevention strategies for premenopausal breast cancer, but our findings clearly show that physical activity during adolescence and young adulthood can pay off in the long run by reducing a woman’s risk of early breast cancer,” says lead investigator Graham Colditz, M.D., Dr.P.H., the Niess-Gain Professor and associate director of Prevention and Control at the Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. “This is just one more reason to encourage young girls and women to exercise regularly.”” (Physorg.com)

Exercise it seems is a key to prevention of many things, including now breast cancer, I know I will be letting me girls know for the sake of their children to keep their children, boys and girls active for their health, wellbeing and happiness. How important is this information in an age when kids, especially teens are spending so much time in front of a computer or ‘talking’ via text message, rather than out getting active with their friends? I know most fitness centres welcome teens and will design a program just for growing bodies, this is one way to keep your girls healthy and fit.

Girls! go out and get active and learn to have fun and stay healthy all at the same time!
