Exercise—Any Physical Activity Saves Lives

Wednesday, 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..

One alcohol drink daily raises breast cancer risk!

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

One alcohol drink a day (small glass wine or beer-10 gms alcohol) increases pre-menopausal breast cancer risk by 5 percent and post-menopausal breast cancer risk by 9 percent according to new research reported by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund. Researchers also found that vigorous exercise such as running or fast bicycling decreases the risk of both pre and post-menopausal breast cancer ,They also confirmed earlier findings that moderate exercises decrease the risk of post-menopausal breast cancer that is the most comm,on type of breast cancer. Researchers said “With this comprehensive and up to date report  the evidence is clear, Having as physically active lifestyle, maintaining a healthy weight throughout life and limiting alcohol–these are all steps women can take to lower their risk.”

This report analyzed 119 studies, including data on 12 million women and 260,000 cases of breast cancer. The study found the equivalent of 10 gm of alcohol a day increased the risk and the standard drink is 14 gm of alcohol. specifics of exercise and cancer risk found follow: pre-menopausal women who were the most active had a 17 percent lower risk and post-menopausal women had a 10 percent lower risk of developing breast cancer compared to those who were the least active. Moderate activity such as walking and gardening gave a 13 percent lower risk when compared to the most vs least active women for developing cancer.

Other findings included: being overweight or obese increases the risk of post-menopausal breast cancer; women who breast fed were are lower risk of breast cancer; and the great adult weight gain  the greater the post-menopausal breast cancer risk.  There was limited evidence for the following findings that must be repeated, 1) non-starchy vegetables lower the risk for estrogen-receptor (ER) negative breast cancer that is a less common but a more challenging type to treat. ) 2) dairy, diets high in calcium and foods containing carotenoids seemed to lower risk of breast cancer. Carrots, apricots, spinach and kale are all foods high in carotenoids and should be studied for their health value;

Cheryl Boyles  tells us her story below. In June 2000 I was 33 years old, working as a wildlife biologist in Oregon, married to a wonderful husband for 10 years, and the mother of two amazing sons that were 1 and 3 years old.  I was loving life; then overnight my life changed.  I began having headaches that felt like my skull was going to explode.  An MRI showed my brain was hemorrhaging.  I went into surgery and an acorn sized grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) brain tumor was removed.  I was told I had less than a year to live.I quit my job, and focused on being a mother and fighting brain cancer.  I went through radiation, but chose not to take chemotherapy.  The chemo would only add 3 months to my life, but quality of life would be miserable.

I decided to take more of a natural “alternative” approach, trying to boost my own immune system.  My good cells outnumbered my bad cancer cells! I started eating organic, following a low carbohydrate diet, exercising, simplifying life and nursing a positive attitude, taking acupuncture, many supplements, cannabis, some “off label” prescriptions (like Metformin), and most of all leaning on God for strength which feeds me with hope.

Over the 16 years fighting the terminal brain cancer, I’ve unfortunately was hit with six recurrences. The fact that I have survived is unbelievable.  My doctors even say so.  Most people with the GBM die with their first recurrence, which usually happens within the first few years.  To fight my recurrences, I mostly focused on my alternative actions, but also continued with some of the standard treatments.  I’ve been through six brain craniotomies, 6 week of conformation radiation, over 3 ½ years on the milder chemo called Temodar, and also what is called Gamma Knife radiation.

Taking this approach of combining many alternative and standard treatments, trying to hit the cancer from many angels, has become known at a “cocktail” approach.  It seems to be working for me, not that I’m cured, but I’m still alive and loving life.  Over the sixteen years I’ve had over 100 MRIs, and it’s great to say that my last MRI was clear, no seen GBM.I have become known in the “brain tumor world” as a long term survivor.  Patients and caregivers from around the USA and around the world contact me wanting to know “How do you do it?”  So I’ve put together a web page www.cherylbroyles-gbm.com, wrote a book called Life’s Mountains, and made some videos hoping to reach out and encourage others.

Now my husband and I have been married 26 years, growing stronger together.  My two boys are now 17 and 20 years old, both wanting to become wildlife biologists like mom and dad.   And over the years I’ve been blessed with many things.  Seeing life anew, learning to be content regardless of circumstances, enduring through the challenges, and living life in the moment.

Will Exercise Improve Muscle Repair in Older Adults?

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Logos 005

New research published in The FASEB Journal concluded that regular exercise is important for muscles to repair themselves more quickly after injury. Although muscle repair slows as we age this study shows that contrary to previous beliefs that muscles did not completely repair with age that after only eight weeks of exercise, old mice experienced faster muscle repair and regained more muscle mass than those of the same age that had not exercised. Researchers said “Exercise per-conditioning may improve the muscle repair response in older adults to stimulate such an acute period of atrophy/inactivity and or damage.”

Researchers used three groups of mice: old mice that were exercise trained; old mice that were not exercises trained; and young mice that were not exercise trained. in the first group, old mice were trained three days/week for eight weeks and the effect of exercise in aging muscles was measured by comparing the three groups.  Changes in muscle repair with aging w2as measured by injecting snake venon that is commonly used to induce muscle injury in rodents, into the old and young non-exercise mice.  All three groups were compared prior to muscle injury, ten days after injury, and 28 days after injury, Researchers said “This is a clear demonstration that the physiological and metabolic benefits of exercise radiate to skeletal muscle satellite cells, the adult stem cells responsible for repair after injury, even in senescent animals.”

Exercise for Chemo Induced Neuropathy.

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

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

A new study reported at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting reported that some simple and inexpensive exercises can reduce neuropathy in hands and feet due to chemotherapy. In the study of over 300 cancer patients researchers compared the neuropathic symptoms (shooting or burning pain, tingling, numbness, and sensitivity to cold) in patients who took part in a specialized six-week walking routine with gentle, resistant band training at home to those who did not exercise. Results showed that the exercisers reported significantly fewer symptoms of neuropathy and the benefits seemed to be most beneficial to older patients. The exercise program used was developed by Karen Mustian at the University of Rochester and is known as the Exercise for Cancer Patients (EXCAP) which as been copyrighted and evaluated. In one recent study it was shown to reduce chronic inflammation and congnative impairment amon people receiving chemotherapy.

One researcher said “Twelve years ago when we started this work a lot of people saqid it was not safe for most cancer patients to exercise. Now we know it can be safe when done correctly, and that it has measurable benefits. But more exercis ins’t always better for patients who are going through chemo-so it’s important to continue our work  and find a way to personalize exercise iun a way that will help each individual.”  More research is planned.

Tony Samara, Shaman, Interview Available.

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Tony Samara

Tony Samara, author of ‘Shaman’s Wisdom,’ ‘The Simplicity of Love Meditation,’ ‘Different Yet the Same,’ ‘Karma, Mantra and Beyond’ and ‘Discover Your Inner Buddha’ was born in England, grew up in Egypt, England, and also in Norway where he discovered the “Zen Buddhist philosophy”.

This discovery eventually led him to the Mount Baldy Zen Center in California, USA, where he learned the spiritual teachings of Kyozan Joshu Sasaki, Roshi. He had curiosity to explore further the essence of spirituality and thus went to live and learn with shamanic communities around the globe. By going on pilgrimage to various sacred sites in India, Tony was able to dwell deeply upon the ancient Vedic and Jain philosophies and work profoundly with the essence of these teachings.

Now people from all over the world visit Tony Samara to take spiritual guidance and experience being in his presence.

Tony Samara believes that “the vast majority of people go through life without directly experiencing the depths of their true self, or understanding their connection to life, or their relationship to others and to the world at large. We are often taught to only relate to the world through our senses. We think, we reason, we feel – but we do not know from our hearts what it means to be connected to what is beyond the senses.”

He recognizes that direct experiences have the potential to radically transform an individual and his or her life, as well as promote a profound and effortless letting go of past emotional, mental and physical pain and suffering.

His main countries of activity are in Europe, yet with the assistance of the Internet he is attracting a Global audience through frequent online interviews and live satsangs. His function is as a Spiritual Master who encourages all to lead their lives actively in a noble way in order to realize the evolution of human consciousness.

Verbal dialogue is not the essence of his teachings, but he explains in a direct and simple way that everyone can understand how each individual can practically integrate greater acceptance, peace and joy into their daily lives.

Tony Samara teaches with humour, humility and with infinite patience, empowering the individual with courage, trust and inner strength to continue on this journey back into wholeness, a path that leads towards real freedom.

“Conscious evolution is ultimate freedom. Overcoming the fear of what lies ahead, by illuminating the spiritual dimension within our nature, is awakening to the splendour of our hearts.

It is said that the mind clarifies matters and reveals truth, but, in fact, it creates confusion for the heart. True reality dwells in its natural center — the heart: the heart is the path to self-realization.

The totally natural state of joy and wisdom experienced as the heart opens to the truth, is the remarkable state of being, free for all to experience.”

Tony Samara is a mirror of what is possible, a shining reminder of the continuous possibility of being human. More information available at: http://www.TonySamara.com

Does Excessive Sitting Decrease Health Condition of Heart Disease Patients Who Exercise?

Friday, December 4th, 2015

logo1267406_mdNew research published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention concluded that patients with heart disease who sit a lot have worse health even if they exercise.

In the study 278  patients with coronary artery disease were studies for their sedentary lifestyle and its effect on health. All had been through a cardiac rehab program that taught them how to improve their level of exercise in the long term.  All participants wore an activity monitor during their waking hours for 9 days to measure their amount of being sedentary (mainly sitting) or active (doing light housework, moderate or vigorous levels of activity) compared to health markers. Some health markers included body mass index (BMI), and cardio respiratory fitness

Researchers found that subjects with coronary artery disease spent an average of eight hours daily being sedentary. Researchers were surprised at this result and said “This was surprisingon how to exercise more given that they had taken classes.” ” We assumed they would be less sedentary but they spent the majority of the day sitting.”  Results showed that men spent an average of 1 hour more sitting than women because women tended to do more light intensity activities such as light h0usework, running errands and walking to the end of the driveway. They found that subjects who sat more had a higher BMI and lower cardio respiratory fitness assessed using VO2 peak (aerobic capacity or the maximum rate at which the heart, lungs and muscles use oxygen during an exercise test). Results found were independent of age, gender, or physical activity level.

Researchers suggested the following activities to move more: 1) Get up and move every 30 minute; 2)Stand up during TV commercials or do light exercises while watching TVl and 3) Set a timer and take regular breaks from sitting 4) Take lunch break outside instead of in front of the computer, 5) Go to bed instead of sitting in front of the TV and get the benefit of sleep, and 6) Monitor activity levels to determine when you are most sedentary.
