Code of Forgiveness/Spirituality discussed by Dr Ivan Figueroa-Otero

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

My guest this week is Iván Figueroa Otero M.D. FACS, FAAMA/  After graduating from the School of Medicine of the University of PR in 1970, Dr. Figueroa Otero trains as General Surgeon at the University Hospital of the UPR School of Medicine, integrating a one-year fellowship in the study of cancer, and one year in experimental research. Post-graduate studies in Pediatric Surgery, then follow at Miami Children’s Hospital and the San Juan Municipal Hospital.
Looking for non-surgical or less invasive options for pediatric conditions, Dr. Figueroa Otero explores Eastern philosophies that emphasize a holistic concept of disease. He was one of the first physicians to become certified in medical acupuncture in Puerto Rico, training in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture with professors from the University of Seville. Eventually he was certified in medical acupuncture nationally.
In 2009, he became certified in anti- aging medicine and in December of that year he retired from the practice of pediatric surgery, focusing instead on a holistic medical practice and emphasizing disease prevention and modification of life styles. In 2011 he was invited to become a Trustee of the American Board of Medical Acupuncture, which is the national body organization responsible for certifying physicians in the field of acupuncture through national exams. In that same year he was recognized by Natural Awakenings magazine as Holistic Physician of the Year.
Dr. Figueroa Otero is currently engaged in his private practice and continues in his role as an educator, trying to achieve full integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture courses in the curriculum of medical schools, promoting that physicians to be certified both locally and nationally, and to establish clinical research protocols on the use of acupuncture in known conditions compared to the methodology established by modern medicine. Another immediate priority is to incorporate meditation techniques and their role in preventive and therapeutic medicine. He has authored multiple books including Spirituality 103: The forgiveness Code.

Multiple Myeloma Survivor Treated by Dr Stanislaw Burzynski

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

My guest, David Emerson says “I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in February of 1994 at the age of 34. I underwent induction therapy of 5 rounds of VAD, 2 rounds of cytoxan and an autologus bone marrow transplant, all in 1995. I relapsed in 10/96, underwent local palliative local radiation, relapsed again in 9/97 and was told “nothing more can be done for you. ”

”I underwent a “quack” cancer therapy called antineoplaston therapy (ANP) from 11/97-4/99. I reached complete remission where I have remained since.  I have remained in complete remission from my multiple myeloma by living an evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-myeloma lifestyle through nutrition, supplementation, bone health, mind-body, detox. and more. I consider my anti-myeloma regimen to be a metronomic, low-dose, maintenance myeloma therapy. But non-toxic.

I am also a multiple myeloma cancer coach. Click my website to join a free webinar about the Multiple Myeloma Cancer Coaching Program that I researched and developed based on my 22 plus years living with multiple myeloma I would not be alive today if it weren’t for the Internet and The Burzynski Research Institute. I created the Galen Foundation as a 501(c)(3) non-profit and launched www.PeopleBeatingCancer.org with the mission to empower cancer survivors and caregivers through information, education and support.

Research on Spirituality, Religion and Health.

Friday, April 4th, 2014

logo1267406_mdA new study published in Psychology of Religion and Spirituality concluded that religion and spirituality have distinct but complementary influences on health. The researchers are tying to understand religion, spirituality and health and developed a theoretical model to define spirituality and religion. They say religiousness included formal religious affiliation and service attendance and is associated with better health habits, such as lower smoking ratesand reduced alcohol consumption. Spirituality, including meditation and private prayer, helps regulate emotions, which aids physiological effects such  as blood pressure. The researchers say ther can be some influence of religion and spirituality on health and more research is needed to test the theory and examine contrasts between the two pathways in order to improve research.

Kelley Eidem Completes Cancer Series and Monique Chapman Starts Holistic Wellness Series

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

KelleyEidemPhoto2005-gamma-sat2-mirror2

costume1-244x300My guests on Saturday are Kelley Eidem who will complete the cancer series and Monique Chapman who will start the holistic wellness series.

The odyssey of Kelley Eidem  started in his  mid twenties when he was diagnosed with a serious chronic kidney ailment called glomererulonephritis that is a serious inflammation or breakdown of the tiny tubules in the kidneys that filter waste product from the blood.He  was lucky enough to locate a holistic M.D. who helped him turn his illness around

One of the things he had Kelley  do was to take long hot  baths in order to detoxify himself through sweating.His schedule had him doing these baths on a Saturday night when most young men would be engaged in other activities.

 But as his health improved, the intense experience of the baths gave him the desire to want to help others who were suffering from health problems. Only back in those days, no one wanted to listen. 

 About 15 years later Kelley was interviewing Congressman Peter Defazio of Oregon in his offices for an article he was writing regarding his support for the Access To Medical Treatment Act, a bill that would give doctors greater freedom in how they practiced medicine.

The Congressman told me about a Senate Hearing regarding alternative treatments for cancer. In the transcripts from that hearing, a man by the name of Vernon Morin was telling the Senate Committee about how his three-year-old daughter had made a miraculous recovery after being near death and with no hope.Vernon had taken his daughter to see Dr. Emanuel Revici, a medical doctor practicing in New York City.

 Kelley called Vernon and they spoke for 2 hours. Shortly thereafter the Revici Clinic sent Kelley  some information about Dr. Revici and his work. Upon reading the packet it struck Kelley  like a lightening bolt that Dr. Revici’s story and work weren’t an article but a book.

Three years later Kelley’s book entitled The Doctor Who Cures Cancer became a reality. The book was the fruition of a dream that first came forth during those Saturday night detoxifying baths.
