Editorial Issue 261

listed in editorial, originally published in issue 261 - March 2020

I don’t think it outrageous of me to opine that the world – far from being a happy, rosy place – is currently mean-spirited, with humanity fighting each other with vicious, sour abandon. Regardless of whether you look at historical films such as 1917, Nazi Germany holocaust camps, films from Syria’s Idlib, Twitter Feeds populated with opponents slogging it out, the tragic suicide of Love-Island’s host Caroline Flack; harmony and peace are definitely not operative words to describe the emotional climate of the world we currently inhabit.

Positive Health PH Online Issue 261 publishes a diverse array of Editorial features spanning the vast health global disciplines ranging from Mind-Body & Spiritual, Mental Health / Stress, Cancer, Immune System and aspects of Diet and Nutrition. The Bodywork section traverses the terrain including Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Dentistry, Exercise and Fitness and Yoga.

When I read the assembled Issue 261 in detail, I feel the pleasure of one whose hard fought-for beliefs regarding creating and maintaining optimal health are mirrored. I am not the only one battling for an integrated, non-drug dominated approach to health. Furthermore, several of these golden facts may be life-saving for all who heed the information.

Dr Patrick Quanten eloquently states in his article A History of a Healthcare System:

“For over a century we have been using radiation and chemotherapy to fight cancer and even though we all observe that people are not being cured of the cancerous process by these methods we persist in our habits. But that, I can guarantee you, won't continue.”

Nicholas Gonzalez MD successfully treated many cancer patients before his premature and much mourned death. Here are but a few nuggets from his  article (transcribed from audio) Four Reasons Why Cancer Patients Routinely Die:

“First Mistake: they Panic

“If you are in a state of panic and you have cancer, you are not going to make it no matter what therapy you choose, chemo, radiation, surgery, laetrile, Burton, Gonzalez, Kelley...When you are in a state of panic, your sympathetic nervous system turns on...When the blood supply is cut down to an organ or to an organ system because of sympathetic over-discharge, you can’t get therapeutic agents to that tumour. If you have a cancer in your intestine, or in your pancreas or in your breast and your sympathetic system is turned on because of over-anxiety and panic, the blood supply to that tumour is going to be turned off, and no therapeutic agent is going to get to that tumour, it doesn’t matter if its chemotherapy or enzymes, it’s not going to get there. 

“The Second Mistake: Inability to Make a Decision

“If you can’t make a decision and pick a therapy and stick with it, you’re not going to make it, or your chances are going to be much, much less than they would be otherwise.”

The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service – OMNS –  have published updates about research regarding Vitamin C against COVID-19 coronavirus, some of which has been included in the Letters to the Editor of this Issue.

“The Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy (JCIT) recommends intravenous vitamin C (IVC) 12.5/25g (12,500 - 25,000 mg) for acute viral infections (influenza, herpes zoster, common cold, rubella, mumps, etc.) and virus mimetic infections (idiopathic sudden hearing loss, Bell's palsy). In adults, IVC 12.5g is given for early stage illness with mild symptoms, and IVC 25g for moderate to severe symptoms. IVC is usually administered once or twice a day for 2-5 continuous days, along with or without general treatments for viral infections.”

The OMNS have summarized publication of this Research:

As befits the climate we inhabit, much of the content of Issue 261 concerns aspects of our Spiritual and Mental Health. These outstanding editorial features with attitude include: Be Mindful and Fully Grounded, Normal Ignorance and Natural Truth, Procrastination – An NLP Strategy for Doing it Now, Mental Health Benefits of Nature, How Schools are Identifying and Combating Toxic Stress, 7 Destinations Perfect for Introvert Minds, Coming of Age – How Periods are Celebrated Around the World, Raining Cats and Dogs - How Pets can Improve your Mental Health.

Can Beliefs Impact the Immune System explores how our mind affects our well-being:

“The immune system impacts every cell.  When we say that we are feeling down, every cell feels down.  Feeling down might manifest in a certain body area but the ‘down feeling’ is registered universally. This reaction is subconscious and a person can be consciously unaware of being depressed but the immune system will still register depression.  This being so, then the beliefs which give rise to depression and its effects on the immune system would be the prime area for investigation.”

The Story of Curaderm BEC 5 and its Application in Treating Basal Cell Cancers tells the story of the development of a successful treatment approach to basal cell cancer.

How to have a Healthy Gut and 10 Healthy Fatty Foods refresh our memory about dietary and nutritional approaches to building and attaining optimal health.

Untangling the Tangled Web explores “a key tenet of osteopathy and craniosacral therapy is that ‘structure governs function’. If structure is compromised, then function is altered.”

7 Lesser Known Facts About Wisdom Teeth describe lesser known facts about wisdom teeth:

“As prehistoric man evolved, so did his body. Jaws became smaller, and brains got bigger. Man’s diet changed. There was no need for the third set of molars since the food was cooked and easier to chew. Third molars slowly became redundant.”

Virtual Personal Trainer Unveils How to Get Fit the RIGHT Way and 12 Poses of Suryanamaskar and Benefits on the Body are features which focus upon our physical bodies and which also impacts upon our minds.

Including the Research Updates, Issue 261 helps to provide the antidote to the presently unhappy world. Enjoy!
