Cannabis Extract Expert, Mara Gordon, Speaks on the Holistic Health Show

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

Mara Gordon, founder, Chief Process Engineer, specializes in the development of cannabis extract treatment protocols for seriously ill patients in California. She is the co-founder of Aunt Zelda’s, Calla Spring Wellness, and Zelda Therapeutics.

Prior to Aunt Zelda’s, Mara worked as a process engineer, helping Fortune 500 companies create intelligent software by utilizing the Rational Unified Process. This experience has enabled her to take a detailed and scientific approach to medical cannabis.

Recognizing a need for patient-focused software, Gordon created CDRMed, an EMR specially developed for the healthcare community. With CDRMed, physicians and medical health professionals are able to make treatment recommendations based on the latest and highest-quality data. This takes the guesswork out of selecting the correct medicines at the dispensary.

Gordon sits on the boards of Zelda Therapeutics, Daya Foundation, International Cannabis Standards Board (ICSB), and Hmbldt. She has presented at multiple CME-accredited medical conferences, including Patients Out of Time 2014, and at POT 2016, delivered a 3.5 hour course along with Drs Cristina Sanchez, Manuel Guzman, and Joe D. Goldstrich. Gordon has spoken at medical cannabis conferences in Australia, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Israel, as well as numerous events throughout the USA and worldwide.

Liquid Biopsy/ Evaluating Cancer Treatment

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Liquid Biopsy, a blood test that detects circulating DNA tumor DNA, may not only sound an early alert that a treatment effect is diminishing but may also may offer clues about what to do next according to a new study published   Researchers say “We have shown that integrating regular liquid biopsy into our patient routine care is feasible and easily incorporated into clinical practice.” ” This technology can precisely help us understand each patient’s individual disease course and allows us to tailor care based on an understanding of their significant disease biology.”

In the study 40 patients with various forms of gastro-intestinal (GI) cancers who had previously responded to treatment that stopped were included. Liquid biopsies were done when their disease began to progress and circulating tumor DNA in the blood was analyzed for genetic mutation that might be making patients resistant to treatment. Thirty one of the 40 patients had at least one mutation, and 14 had more than 1 mutation. It was interesting that about two thirds of patients  had traditional biopsies taken at the same time and the liquid biopsy picked up extra mutations that could not be seen in the tissue biopsy. Researchers said “Identifying what specific mutations are responsible for treatment resistance is very important in helping clinicians choosing what treatment path  a patient should try next, whether it be another drug or prehaps radiation.”

Although liquid biopsies are not widely used outside the research setting, the researchers believe they are about to transform cancer treatment. The researchers say “We have shown this approach to be feasible across different GI cancers.” “Thew next step is to study how best to use this technology in daily practice.”

NB>I came across liquid biopsies a couple months ago while working on content for my cancer website .  I will have the test information on the site within the next month  as it is used to detect cancer and can do so before many other tests. However, the major problem now is that the cost can be up to $4,500.

Dr Sandra Goodman/Positive Health/Nutrition & Cancer

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Sandra Goodman PhD, Co-founder and Editor of Positive Health PH Online, trained as a Molecular Biology scientist in Agricultural Biotechnology in Canada and the USA. Sandra was born and grew up in Montreal, Canada, a highly cosmopolitan city in Quebec, subject to the political tensions of the Canadian French and English divide. In addition to focusing upon her academic studies in the arts and sciences, Sandra was also a talented pianist and athlete, particularly in gymnastics. Having qualified as a Red Cross swimming instructor and Royal Lifesaving Society lifeguard, she greatly enjoyed teaching young adults and children to swim and overcome their fear of the water.

Sandra graduated with her PhD in Molecular Biology from McGill University with her Thesis: Expression of host genes in soybean root nodules, research attempting to identify nitrogen fixation genes in a legume, with an ultimate goal of being able to transfer such genes to non-legumes and reduce the requirement for fertilizer. Dr Goodman worked for a Multi-National Corporation in the USA as a Biotechnology Scientist until the mid-1980s, eventually traveling and settling in the UK focusing upon health issues. Author of 4 books regarding the role of Nutrition in empowering optimum health, including Nutrition and Cancer: State-of-the-Art, Vitamin C – The Master Nutrient, Germanium: The Health and Life Enhancer and numerous articles, Dr Goodman was the lead author of the Consensus Document: Nutritional and LifeStyle Guidelines for People with Cancer and compiled the Cancer and Nutrition Database for the Bristol Cancer Help Centre in 1993.

The catastrophic but flawed research paper in The Lancet in the early 1990s alleging that women with breast cancer attending the Bristol Cancer Help Centre (BCHC) were more likely to die than those undergoing conventional treatment almost led to the closure of BCHC. Having authored a scholarly article Nutritional and Lifestyle Guidelines for People with Cancer, Dr Goodman was then commissioned in the early 1990s to set up a Cancer and Nutrition database which would identify the published research papers in this field.

During the compilation of this database, drawn from some 5000 peer-reviewed research papers, it was suggested by Sandra’s long-term partner Mike Howell that there was a lack of communication of this type of research both to health professionals and the serious general reader of health information. Thus was born Positive Health magazine PH Online, which has now published over 237 issues (the print magazine ceased after Issue 150); the entire archive is exclusively online at www.positivehealth.com

Dr Goodman has worked for the past 22+ years as a co-founder and Editor of Positive Health PH Online in attempting to show that there is no divide between different types of healthcare, just different approaches, i.e. Integrated Medicine. She is passionate about making available to all people, particularly those with cancer,  research information and clinical expertise in the areas of Nutrition and Complementary Therapies. She has been a member of the Therapy Advisory Panel of the Penny Brohn Cancer Care, Scientific Expert Committee member of the Alliance for Natural Health and a Patron of the Avalon Complementary Medicine Trust in Wells, Somerset. Her recent (Oct 2014) Research Proposal: Cancer Patients’ Outcomes: Comparing Integrated Alternative Therapies and Chemotherapy / Radiotherapy Treatment reviews the scientific literature regarding chemotherapy toxicity.

Dr Goodman and her long-term partner Mike Howell seek individuals with the resources, structural organization and interest to continue and expand the legacy of Positive Health PH Online forward into the 21st century, adding facilities to conduct online seminars, fundraising for alternative cancer research, as well as to promote leading holistic organizations and businesses internationally. Follow her Blog and purchase Nutrition and Cancer: State-of-the-Art.

BPA/Inflammatory Breast Cancer Connection.

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Holistic-Health-Show-with-Dr-Carl-O-Helvie

The chemical bisphenol A (BPA) seems to aid the survival of inflammatory breast cancer cells that reveals a possible mechanism for how the disease grows according to new research in the journal Carcinogenesis. They found that BPA increases the cell signaling pathways known as mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) in inflammatory breast cancer cells. Researchers said “the study is the first to show that BPA increases signaling thorough receptors that communicate with the MAPK pathway and that the presence of BPA may lead to resistance to cancer drugs targetinmg this pathweay. In our cell model, more signaling led to increased growth of the cancer cells”

Researchers started by treating Inflammatory Breast Cancer cells with six endocrine-disrupting chemicals commonly found in the everyday environment found in food, medicine and agricultural products. The found that BPA, in addition to chemicals trichloroethane (HPTE) and methoxychlor, caused an increase in signaling to epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR), that lie on the cell surface. When cells were treated with low doses of BPA, there was nearly a doubling of EGER and signaling to the MAPK pathway also increased. This weas accompanied with a rise in indicators of cancer cell growth. They also found that BPA exposure inhibited the effectiveness of drugs that work to kill cancer cells by inhibiting EGFR signaling.  Research is ongoing.

Cancer Development/Epigenetics/ Metabolism?

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

logo7952801_md (1)

A new study published in Briefings in Functional Genomics evaluated how epigenetics modulate human genetic programs and how it emphasizes or silences genes and concluded that if epigenetics is disrupted. it might switch on oncogenes (genes that under certain circumstances transform cells into tumor cells) or shut down tumor suppressors. Both processes will transform cells into tumor cells and cause cancer.

Experiments carried out years ago showed that chemical modification affecting the packaging of DNA can switch genes on or off. Epigenetics evolved to explain the changes caused by modification of gene expression , instead of altering the gene code itself and focuses on factors that regulate how and when certain genes are turned on and off.  In contract, epigenomics relates to the analysis of global epigenetic changes across many genes. Current research shows that complementary forces of on and off switches keep each other is check. If one force overtakes, the system gets out of equibrium. and the cells either experience unlimited growth, cancer, or death. It is believed that a better understanding of these processes will lead to counter factors to prevent cancer.

 

Dr Carlos Garcia/Utopia Wellness Cancer Treatment

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

Dr Carlos Garcia

Utopia Wellness is a leading-edge medical center that offers integrative, holistic, patient-focused medical treatments. Under the direction of Carlos M. Garcia, M.D., programs designed for anyone who wants to enjoy optimal health are offered: Whether suffering from a chronic illness or simply wanting to prevent disease. Our extensive menu of wellness programs complement each other by addressing all issues related to well-being.

Dr. Carlos M. Garcia M.D. received his formal medical training at the University of Massachusetts, Medical School followed by an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Anesthesia, both at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, PA.

After moving to the Tampa Bay area in 1984, he began his practice as an Anesthesiologist at Bayfront Medical Center, Edward White Hospital, and Physicians’ Community Hospital.

Over his years working in hospitals, he came to realize that traditional medicine was driven more by the profits of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals than it was on providing the patient with the best possible care. So in 1996, Dr. Garcia redirected his medical focus to natural alternative health care including holistic medicine, integrative cancer treatments, Chelation therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement, IV vitamins and antioxidants, and weight loss. In all of these areas, he uses non-harmful and natural alternatives to conventional treatments. His passion to help others achieve optimal health through natural medicine led him to found Utopia Wellness, where he incorporates the best that medicine has to offer, traditional and alternative.

Dr. Garcia’s focus over the past several years has been on helping people suffering from cancer and its related diseases. His approach is holistic in that he addresses not only the tumor or cancer but also on the whole person and the cause of the cancer. To be truly cancer free for life, you must identify and eliminate the underlying cause of the disease.  In 2012, Dr. Garcia published his book Cancer is a Symptom: The Real Cause Revealed where he addresses the prospect that cancer is merely a symptom and unless you heal the underlying cause, you will never be truly cancer free.He also co authored Cancer Free with Bill Henderson.

Dr. Garcia is a member of ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine), ICIM (International College of Integrative Medicine), and the American Holistic Health Association.  Additionally, Dr. Garcia holds certifications in Chelation Therapy from the American Board of Chelation Therapy, and has given numerous lectures on various health topics to professionals, medical students and the public, has had a radio talk show, and has been interviewed for several health related television news topics.
