Metastatic Prostate Cancer predicted with new Biomarker in Lab. .

November 22nd, 2017

Many.prostate cancers that are usually diagnosed in older men are slow growing and not considered fatal.  But some become aggressive and spread beyond the prostate, making them difficult to treat and life-threatening. With current knowledge doctors are unable to determine which will be slow growing and which will spread to other sites. In this study published recently in Clinical Cancer Research  report discovering a genetic signature .within prostate cancer that can predict which tumors are likely to metastasize.

Using several data sets of prostate cancer patients and outcomes researchers found that a high number expressed two genes:  TOP2A and EZH2 were associated with early recurrence of prostate cancer and metastatic spread leading to an increased risk of death. Strong metastatic tendencies were only expressed if both genes were found in the tumor. Researchers said: “Altogether we found that high levels of TOP2A and EZH2 expression consistently associated in the progression to a metastatic and lethal disease. ”

Using mouse prostate cancer cells in the lab, researchers found that cells containing overexposed  TOP2A and EZH2  genes were highly sensitive to attack with a combination of 2 drugs. However, clinical trials are necessary to make a definitive statement. It is hoped that attacking these genes with drugs may prevent aggressive cells from p metastasizing. .

Dr. Dale Bredesen is internationally recognized as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. He graduated from Caltech, then earned his MD from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC. He served as Chief Resident in Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) before joining Nobel laureate Stanley Prusiner’s laboratory at UCSF as an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow. He held faculty positions at UCSF, UCLA and the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Bredesen directed the Program on Aging at the Burnham Institute before coming to the Buck Institute in 1998 as its founding President and CEO.  Dr Bredesen has mentored many, many physicians and PhD learners in his lab, presented over 300 papers, written over 200 peer reviewed papers written numerous book chapters and abstracts,, written several books including his recent the End of Alzheimer’s: The first program to prevent and reverse cognitive decline, received numerous patents and honors. In addition, recently he has been interviewed on many television  and radio shows including Dr Oz. You can see his curriculum vitae at: https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/1a2e49_f0a51bffa9a341dca2ab7af9b6fd0c3d.pdf

The uniform failure of recent drug trials in Alzheimer’s disease has highlighted the critical need for a more accurate understanding of the fundamental nature of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Bredesen’s research has led to new insight that explains the erosion of memory seen in Alzheimer’s disease, and has opened the door to a new therapeutic approach. He has found evidence that Alzheimer’s disease stems from an imbalance in nerve cell signaling: in the normal brain, specific signals foster nerve connections and memory making, while balancing signals support memory breaking, allowing irrelevant information to be forgotten. But in Alzheimer’s disease, the balance of these opposing signals is disturbed, nerve connections are suppressed, and memories are lost. This model is contrary to popular dogma that Alzheimer’s is a disease of toxicity, caused by the accumulation of sticky plaques in the brain. Bredesen believes the amyloid beta peptide, the source of the plaques, has a normal function in the brain — promoting signals that allow some of the nerve connections to lapse. Thus the increase in the peptide that occurs in Alzheimer’s disease shifts the memory-making vs. memory-breaking balance in favor of memory loss. This work has led to the identification of several new therapeutic candidates that are currently in pre-clinical trials.

Dr. Bredesen’s novel insights into the fundamental nature of Alzheimer’s disease recently attracted an investment of $3.5 million toward a $10 million goal for initial clinical trials of these new therapeutics. This generous support came from the private venture capitalist Douglas Rosenberg, who is helping to fund the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Network, centered at the Buck Institute. The unit is screening drug candidates to find those that can preserve a healthy balance in the signaling pathways that support memory. Dr. Bredesen’s work on nerve cell signaling is also the focus of a collaboration between the Buck Institute and BioMarin Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which is seeking treatments for a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease, early onset Familial Alzheimer’s Disease (eFAD), which may develop in people as young as 30 years of age.

Nutritional absorption is enhanced by a spoonful of oil on vegetables.

November 10th, 2017

A new study published in  the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that adding a spoonful of oil or fat to vegetables increases their ability to be absorbed.  Specifically adding soybean oil promoters the absorption  of eight different nutrients that promote health. Conversely, eating the same vegetables without the oil increases the likelihood that they will not be absorbed. Salad vegetables included  four carotenoids–alpha and beta carotene, luetin and lycopene—two forms of vitamin E and K,  The oil also promotes the absorption of vitamin A-the 8th nutrient studied. Better absorption is important to promote health including preventing cancer, and eyesight preservation. Researchers also found that the more oil the better the absorption,. The researcher warned that oils should still be limited to the 2 tablespoon daily recommendation

The study included 12 college-age women who consumed salads with varying amounts of soy bean oil. Maximum absorption occurred at a little more than 2 tablespoons ( at  32 grams of fat) but there was some variation among women. The researchers recommended salad oil on salads.

Health Elderly have Same Gut Microbes as Healthy 30 Year Olds

November 8th, 2017

A new study published in the journal Sphere showed that the overall microbiota composition of the healthy elderly population was similar to that of healthy people in their 30’s and the gut microbiota differed little between individuals from the age of 30 to over 100.  The study was carried out between Western University, Lawson Health Research Institute and Tianyi Health Science Institute in Zhenjiang Jiangsu, China and studied gut bacteria in a cohort of more than 1,000 Chinese people in ages ranging from 3 to over 100 years who were self selected to be extremely healthy with no known health issues or family disease.  The results showed a direct correlation between health and the microbes in the intestine. Authors concluded that if you are extremely healthy and 90 years old, your gut microbiota is not that different from a healthy 30 year old in the same population. Although researchers did not know if this is a cause or effect, the study pointed out that it is the diversity of the gut microbiota that remains the same in their study. They concluded that “this demonstrates that maintaining diversity of your gut as you age is a biomarker of healthy aging, just like the low-cholesterol is a biomarker of a healthy circulatory system,  ……suggest that resetting an elderly microbiota to that of a 30-year-old might help promote health.

Raise Vibrations/Consciousness Level above Love . WOW.

November 5th, 2017

Would you like a consciousness environment comparable to 1,000 monks praying for you?  Or to raise the vibrations of a cell phone or other devise so instead of harmful  EMF waves it gives off positive ones. My two guests today have developed technology to give you an energy that will raise your vibrations/consciousness and those in your environment.  Meet Jeffrey Stegman and Clayton Stedmann.

Jeffrey Stegman’s focus has been on creating a high consciousness culture in his businesses, which parallels his own personal spiritual path. Jeffrey is the co-owner of two manufacturing businesses, including one that has been in business since 1835. FLFE is a confluence of Jeffrey’s manufacturing, engineering, business and spiritual evolution. Information at:  http://www.flfe.net

Clayten Stedmann has worked in the education, training and coaching business for over 30 years. For the last 20 years he has focused on business as a spiritual path in his coaching practice. Since discovering Consciousness Kinesiology (CK) in 2004 he has done over five million CK calibrations and created over 10 consciousness assessments and several unique energetic medicine protocols. FLFE is a continuation of his purposeful intention to create the conditions for humanity to have a higher level of consciousness.

Focused Life Force Energy (FLFE Innovations Corp) is a service company providing a subscription to greatly increase the level of consciousness of a property and/or around a mobile object to a very noticeable and beneficial level and provides a free trial so that people can feel it themselves before subscribing..

For centuries people have been making pilgrimages to places around the world known for their cleansing, healing, restoring and loving energy. The highest aspects of this energy can be expressed on the spiritual path and also by being a loving parent, a devoted husband or wife, a hobbyist gardener, a full-time farmer, a dedicated photographer, a steadfast employee and a business owner.

For almost as long people have been working on ways to re-create and harness this energy through study and inventions. People such as Albert Einstein,  Nikola Tesla, Masaru Emoto and Buckminster Fuller are just  a few of the better known of hundreds of researchers who understood that perhaps the greatest contribution to humanity’s evolution that we can make is to raise our own consciousness and sought ways to accelerate that process.

The study of atoms and later quantum physics confirmed what ancient spiritual teachers had been stating for centuries; ‘the law of nature states that everything has a vibration.’ Today most of us use terms like ‘ I do/don’t like the energy or vibe of that room, business or person.’

As humanity evolves new ways of measuring these vibrations emerge. A recent discovery has made it easier to measure vibration in everyday life in order to facilitate positive changes in people’s level of consciousness.

In the latter half of the 20th Century, a very successful psychiatrist, David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., after treating thousands of patients, began to see common levels of thinking, feeling and acting.  He realized that people’s challenges and advances depend on their level of consciousness. He first outlined a scale measuring levels of consciousness or vibration, named the ‘Hawkins Map of Consciousness’, in his New York Times bestselling book ‘Power Versus Force’ (1995). Hawkins, along with a group of researchers, over a period of more than twenty-five years, used kinesiology to measure the level of consciousness in everything they could imagine; people, books, music, events, countries, locations.

Hawkins documented these consciousness levels in a scale from 1 to 1,000. On this scale 200 is the level above which we begin to add energy to everything around us. Below 200 we are net consumers of energy. A few of these levels are: Shame, which vibrates at 20, Fear is 100, Courage is 200, Acceptance is 350 and Love is 500. Enlightenment levels range from 600 to 1000. Today tens of thousands of Hawkins students and practitioners in multiple disciplines use the Hawkins Map to measure and effect change in quality of life and personal evolution.

In 2008 two men met through a mutual friend. They were both working on accessing and utilizing high consciousness fields.  Jeffery Stegman was creating high consciousness fields and cultures in business and Clayten Stedmann, as a coach in business as a spiritual path, was creating high consciousness fields for healing the human mind, body and spirit.

They came together with an inventor who had devoted his life to creating free energy for humanity.  Although he did not create a free energy device, He had discovered a way to re-direct and focus large amounts of life force energy (also known as subtle energy) on an object.

Between Jeff’s experience in engineering and Clayten’s knowledge and extensive practice in Consciousness Kinesiology and the Hawkins Map they re-engineered the original device to broadcast a high consciousness wave to specific locations around the world. At first, Clayten and Jeffrey used the device and associated technology to raise consciousness around the world as a public service project. As they were able to increase the power available and the ability to positively affect a property, they brought the consciousness raising technology to the public as ‘Focused Life-Force Energy’ (FLFE). FLFE Innovations Corp was formed in Nelson B.C., Canada to create the infrastructure to offer the service and to support customers on the FLFE wave.

Today after an additional 9 years of research and hundreds of customers and testimonials Jeffrey and Clayten are beginning the process of increasing public awareness of this unique consciousness raising technology. FLFE Innovations Corp offers a monthly FLFE subscription on a property or on a mobile object (FLFE Mobile, also known as the FLFE Bubble).  The technology associates (entangles) the FLFE device with an address or photograph of an object using custom developed software integrated with the FLFE device and creates the FLFE wave that works with the property or object. The FLFE wave will clear negative history (on a property), raise consciousness and increase greatly the positive energy available for people and animals on the property or in a specific radius around the FLFE Mobile Object, as well as many other enhancements.

You are in for an exciting interview about this new type of energy. If interested in trying the energy for free for a 15 day trial or subscribing to the service use the following link.  https://tm179.isrefer.com/go/TryFLFEfree/Carl113/

I have been using the energy for over a year and have seem positive improvements in my health and interactions with others, and in my holistic environment with difficult neighbors moving away, algae clearing from water bordering my yard, neighbors congregating in front of my house, other stopping to visit and not wanting to leave and more.

Intermittent fasting can help fight obesity.

October 25th, 2017

 

Intermittent fast for up to sixteen weeks without making other changes helps fight obesity and other metabolic disorders .  according to a new study published in in the journal Cell Research  Researchers found that intermittent fasting of mice kick started their metabolism and burning fat by generating heat. Groups of mice were exposed to sixteen weeks of intermittent fasting consisting of being fed for two days followed by one day without anything to eat. Their calorie intake was not adjusted otherwise. After four months the mice in the fasting group had lost more weight than those in the control group who continued to eat the same amount of calories. Weight loss in the fasting group was not the only change. There was a decrease in the build up of white fat by increasing the brown-like fat (involved in burning energy and producing body heat) and their insulin and glucose systems remained more stable. In addition,m these changes were seen after 6 weeks.  This was found to be a result of changes in pathways in the immune system and the bodies reaction to inflammation in which a type of white blood cells that play a role in fighting inflammation is triggered. This leads to stimulation of fat cells to burn stored fat or lipids by generating heat. The authors concluded that “intermittent fasting without a reduction of caloric intake can be a preventive and therapeutic approach against obesity and metabolic diseases.”.

Exercise—Any Physical Activity Saves Lives

October 18th, 2017

Physical activity of any kind can raise the heart rate, prevent heart disease and death and help people meet the current guidelines of 30 minutes  a day or 150 minutes a week according to a new study published in the Lancet. The study involved more than 130,000 people in 17 countries. People from low and middle income countries who often do not participate in leisure time physical activities were included. Researchers said “By including low and middle income countries in this study, we were able to determine the benefits of activities such as active commuting,. having an active job, or even doing housework. ” He also said one in four people worldwide do not meet the current activity guidelines and that number is nearly three in four in Canada.

Using the new criteria of activity influenced the death rates of all diseases and and heart disease 28% and 20%. They also found that those who had brisk walking 750 minutes a week reduced their risk of death by 36%They also found that less than 3% of the people achieved that level with leisure activities but 38% did with activities such as commuting, being active at work, and doing housework. They concluded that if people could be active for at least 150 minutes a week, a total of 8% of deaths could be prevented..
