Second International Ayurveda Congress, London 1-2 April 2017

Over eighty of the world’s leading experts in Ayurveda, the world’s oldest tradition of natural medicine, will attend a two-day Congress in London at the beginning of April.

Second International Ayurveda Congress, London 1-2 April 2017

The seminars and workshops on the Ayurvedic approach to a wide range of health topics, including brain health, cardiovascular disorders, youthfulness & longevity, genetics, and women’s health, aim mainly at medical professionals and natural health practitioners; but everyone with interest in Ayurveda is invited to attend. There will also be a separate session for the general public, which will explain the background, treatments, and range of strategies available from Ayurveda for promoting health, happiness and long life.

Ayurveda - the name means ‘science of lifespan’ - has a recorded history of continuous practice stretching back over 5,000 years. Many of Ayurveda’s time-tested natural approaches have now been verified by modern science. Researchers will present the results of the latest innovative and pioneering studies at the Congress.

The Congress is being organized by three of the largest Ayurvedic organizations in the world: The All India Ayurvedic Congress (AIAC), representing 450,000 Ayurvedic practitioners; the International Academy of Ayurveda (IAA); and the International Maharishi AyurVeda Foundation; the President and Chairs of all three organizations will be joint Presidents of the Congress. Affiliated groups include the Ayurvedic Practitioners Association in the UK, and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Indian Traditional Sciences.

A recent motion in Parliament called for Ayurveda to be integrated into  the NHS; supporters hope the London Congress will offer an opportunity to showcase the science behind Ayurveda, and lead to its greater implementation by health professionals in the UK.

Speakers at the Congress will include Dr Tony Nader MD PhD MARR, who studied brain and cognitive science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, completed post-doctoral work as a Clinical and Research Fellow in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and is an acknowledged global expert in the field of Ayurvedic technologies of consciousness; Padma Bushan Vaidya Devendra Triguna, President of the  All-India Ayurveda Congress and recipient of ‘Padma Shri’ and ‘Padma Bushan’ awards for his contribution to Ayurveda; and Dr med Rainer Picha, from Austria, a senior consultant in cardiology who has lectured throughout the world on Maharishi AyurVeda, and developed new hospital designs, course materials, digital models and medical curricula to integrate this most ancient system of health care with modern medicine.

The International Ayurveda Congress, at Roermond in the Netherlands in April 2015, attracted over 500 medical practitioners and guests; advance bookings suggest that this second Congress will be even more popular.

Energy Medicine International

Learn how to use crystals, colour, sound and flowers for healing and inner development.

Learning how to become a healer can be a life changing event. Many people who are drawn to this path are answering a natural call to help others, whilst looking at themselves on a more profound level. Satisfying these needs can be challenging, rewarding as well as enjoyable. The desired result being a practitioner that is effective, professional and confident and who also has a deeper awareness of what it means to be human.

Energy Medicine International

Energy Medicine International is a healing school offering courses that teach people how to begin developing these skills, so that they may continue on this path as a life-long passion and service to humanity, if they wish.

Courses in subtle energy medicine and crystal and energy healing are taught to both practitioner and specialist levels. The courses also teach students how to sense, work and use healing energies within the human subtle energy systems to varying levels of expertise.

These energy systems are referred to as the bio-magnetic or auric field, chakra points and grid system. Energies within these systems can be blocked, overactive, underactive or even traumatised, affecting their natural flow. This often translates into issues or difficulties that a person is experiencing in life at any given time.

By using energy tools that shape and focus channelled healing energies, changes can be initiated that restore overall energetic balance and health holistically. These tools are crystals, colour, sound and flowers. By positively affecting the subtle energies, people can be supported through challenging periods.

Training takes a minimum of two years (7 weekends per year) tutor-led training. This is a standard set by the UK Umbrella for Subtle Energy Medicine, The Federation of Subtle Energy Medicine. Apart from learning how to work as a practitioner, these courses cover key healer subjects such as death and dying, inner child work, past life healing and sacred geometry. In addition to this, more generic subjects such as anatomy and physiology, setting up in practice are covered.

This equates is around 180 hours tutor led tuition over two years. Students work in small groups, practising healing techniques and meditation, covering inner development subjects e.g. shadow work and learning about the many levels of the energy field and self-healing their own inner patterns from a higher perspective.

This initial two-year part time training is to practitioner level, where graduates can practise within their own right and enjoy this deeply meaningful therapy. Should graduates wish to go further, there is also a specialist programme available.

The Kinesiometer for Bio-Resonance

The Kinesiometer is a new digital device based on a highly sensitive electronic sensor and a revolutionary new software program. The Kinesiometer System consists of a guiding wizard software program and a small separate USB Interface with the Sensor Pad on it. This turns your computer into a powerful Radionics Device, managed by an on-screen Control Panel.

Its system of flow charts will unerringly guide you to a correct analysis of the imbalances of any subject you are testing.

Here’s a sample of the charts...

The Kinesiometer for Bio-Resonance

The Kinesiometer can be slotted into thousands of alternative medicine practices, such as Body Talk, KST, acupuncture, chiropractic and the variations of kinesiology. This system works better than anything I've ever seen for 'bio-energetic' testing, because it sets up in advance a deliberate, precise system of recognisable signals the unconscious can use to communicate with you.

  • It's easy to learn...There's a computer "game" which trains you in the technique;
  • All signals are transmitted through your middle finger ( or index finger if you wish);
  • There's only a Yes or No answer at any time because it's a binary system;
  • What the YES or NO means at any particular time depends on the question and the guiding program;
  • The training program brings the beginner repetitively through the mechanics of the test process, registering Yes and No, mechanically and deliberately, and scoring the effort;
  • In a short time the brain and central nervous system goes on automatic, like driving your car.

In its simplest form you can just choose natural remedies for your client. Or you can learn how to do a complete analysis of the person, address the emotional blockages, check food or other allergies, nutritional supplements, vitamins and minerals , herbs etc.

There's no question of doing "medical diagnosis". And you avoid ethical and legal problems by operating strictly in the bio-energetic arena as a "complementary practitioner". All that's outside the computer is a sensor pad and a usb.

Here’s what you’ll be able to do with the Kinesiometer and the Bio-Resonance system…

  1. Test the exact Vitality level of the subject on a scale of 1 to 10;
  2. Test the level of Nutritional Deficiency;
  3. Test the overall level of Allergy or Sensitivity;
  4. Test the level of Blockage on the Emotional level;
  5. Check the health of the Chakras;
  6. Test an unerringly correct homoeopathic or herbal or nutritional remedy for the subject.

This is a tried and tested  and valid system of alternative medicine, which can be practiced by health professionals in any field as a main approach or an adjunctive method.

Altrient Liposomal Alpha Lipoic Acid – The Ultimate Universal Antioxidant

Never mind Super Foods - let’s talk about Super Antioxidants!

Alpha Lipoic Acid really is all singing - all dancing when it comes to offering multiple health benefits in one easy option. This potent agent really packs a powerful punch in a way that many other antioxidants just can’t compete with. 

Altrient Liposomal Alpha Lipoic Acid – The Ultimate Universal Antioxidant

Why Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is Different

ALA - also known as Lipoic acid or thioctic acid - is a sulphur containing fatty acid synthesized in the liver and other tissues and also obtained from both animal and plant sources in the diet.  It is unique amongst other antioxidants because of its solubility in both water and fat which means it can reach watery areas like the blood and cell contents, as well as the cell’s outer membranes which consist mostly of fat. This property allows it to protect virtually all body tissues against free radical damage.

Some of the Many Benefits of ALA

  • ALA regenerates other antioxidants

Once an antioxidant has neutralised a free radical it becomes inactivated and is unable to work its magic on other free radicals.  ALA is able to re-charge other antioxidants including vitamin C, Glutathione, Co-enzyme Q10 and vitamins A & E, increasing their healing power in the body;

  • ALA raises our energy levels

ALA works within the power houses in our cells known as mitochondria, helping to convert glucose into the energy that keeps us alive and functioning;

  • ALA improves insulin sensitivity and blood glucose levels

Good news for Type 2 diabetes sufferers because several studies now show that supplementing with ALA improves blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity;

  • ALA may provide protection against heart disease

Research has highlighted the benefits of ALA for improving cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure and reducing plaque formation in the arteries - a winning combination in the fight against cardiovascular disease;

  • ALA keeps us young

ALA is known for its anti-ageing properties. This is thought to be because it turns on cellular defences within the body, controls inflammation and restores levels of glutathione - another highly protective antioxidant and detoxification compound.

Altrient R-ALA Is Currently The Most Stable & Bioavailable Form Of ALA

Altrient R-ALA is able to provide the superior form of R-Lipoic Acid without compromising on stability. It overcomes this by packing the Alpha Lipoic Acid into a cleverly designed phospholipid bubble called a liposome. The phospholipid coating is very similar to our own biological membranes protecting the ALA from our body’s natural defences. Studies have proven that liposomes increase stability and solubility allowing for greatly improved absorption in the body. This makes Altrient R-ALA the most bioavailable and highest dosage oral form of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid available anywhere!

Supercoherence Frequency Tools : The Supercoherence Wellness Frequency

Smart phones, cell phone masts and smart meters all emit unseen radiation which is increasingly acknowledged to adversely impact human health. It is difficult if not nearly impossible to avoid this radiation. It is also unlikely that we can turn the clock back to an earlier time when this man made radiation technology did not exist. So is there a solution to this 21st century plague?. In the past, plagues and other infectious diseases were not properly understood...until the advent of the microscope. And there was no antidote until the discovery of antibiotics. We are in a similar position now with the subtle but potent effects of wi-fi/ EMF.

Supercoherence Frequency Tools : The Supercoherence Wellness Frequency

Some of the available options include shielding the home, not having smart meters installed in the home and not using ones smart phone excessively. There are also several devices which claim to neutralize the damaging effects of this radiation which can be worn by the user.

However as Marshall MacLuhan says “This age of anxiety is the result of using yesterday’s tools to solve today’s problems.” We need to address challenges to the human light-energy field with tools that can directly address this field.

The Supercoherence frequency tools are 21st century solutions for 21st century challenges. They are frequency encodings embedded in glass by a special proprietary method. They work on a different principle and understanding. Their purpose is to strengthen the light-energy-information field of the user by creating coherence in their field. Visual coherence is a new, universal 21st century master parameter of wholeness and human function. The Supercoherence Wellness Frequency tool is worn as a pendant and contains a combination of specific Lumanetic frequencies which have been shown to mitigate and alleviate the symptoms of electromagnetic stress. As the field is strengthened in this way, sleep patterns regularize, sensitivity to smart phones is decreased substantially and often there is a reversal of long standing symptoms. So although the external environment remains the same, the body is enabled to deal with the challenge very differently and does so very effectively.

Further Information

All the Supercoherence frequency tools come with 1 year no quibble sale or return guarantee. To learn more please read the case studies at

The Holistic Spine - Reflections and Associations

Acupressure and Reflexology in Action

Aims of the Book

  1. To highlight the significance of the spine and individual vertebrae in the analysis and treatment of visceral and emotional conditions as well as the usual musculo-skeletal ones;
  2. To show how the spine may be ‘reflected’ to other parts of the body and to indicate how these reflexes may be used in both analysis and treatment in order to complement other approaches;
  3. To highlight several aspects of subtle bodywork therapy associated with the spine to give the orthodox and complementary practitioner a more rounded knowledge base;
  4. It is NOT intended to be an anatomy and physiology text book, but rather to supplement these by adding practical knowledge based on experience of practice.

The Holistic Spine - Reflections and Associations

This book is essentially a practical workbook designed at helping practitioners of all persuasion involved in treating spinal conditions to think ‘outside the box’. It will show that anomalies to the spine have significant implications on the wellbeing of the rest of the body. The practitioners who deal with spinal conditions on a daily basis, namely physical therapists, osteopaths and chiropractors should be helped with the different dimensions discussed within. Other therapists should learn that the spine and skull have far more significance than just the harbourer of mechanically based conditions. You will be amazed at the number of conditions and symptoms that may be attributable to spinal aetiology.

John became interested in the ramifications of spinal anomalies in his early twenties - having suffered with a congenital roto-scoliosis of the thoracic spine, leading to untold misery for many years and on many levels. Even when he was training as a chartered physiotherapist, answers weren’t given as to what was truly occurring with his inner economy. It was only when he became well versed in traditional Chinese and other energy medicine philosophy that the ‘penny’ dropped regarding many of the symptoms that he had. These are outlined in the text.

Dr John Cross has remained at the forefront of both orthodox and complementary therapies for over 45 years. He has reached the top of both the acupuncture and acupuncture professions being awarded a doctorate in acupuncture for his work on the integration of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine and a Fellowship for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy for his work on the integration of professional complementary therapies into mainstream physical therapy. He is past President of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and is currently President of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Energy Medicine (ACPEM). He is the author of nine previous books on acupuncture, acupressure, reflexology, the chakra energy system, dowsing and healing. Although now retired from clinical practice he still gives workshops and runs an advisory service for practitioners through his web site and the ‘All Experts’ organization. John resides in the Isle of Skye, Scotland where he has a 12-acre croft that he works with his wife Andrea.

Further Information

The Holistic Spine - Reflections and Associations is not yet available; it is scheduled to be published by John Cross Publications in the first part of 2017.  For more information and to order, please contact John via

Bioresonance - Education is the Prime thing!

On-line learning: 5 Day Diploma Course; Webinars

On-line learning

With Natural health knowledge is of prime importance and of course a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing so it is vital that practitioners desiring to work with bioresonance obtain a thorough understanding of both the principles of energetic medicine, specifically bioresonance therapy and its application in a patient setting. The Paul Schmidt Academy in Germany has recently launched a free on-line learning portal, Rayonex Wiki with over 530 training videos listed under various topics.


Paul Schmidt Academy Training Facility

Rayonex Wiki is a valuable resource specifically for those wishing to learn about Bioresonance According to Paul Schmidt. The videos cover areas of patient analysis & harmonisation, allergy desensitization, checking optimal nutrient provision as well as a wide range of negative causative factors in ill health such as pathogens, geo-bological stress along with the ever present electric & magnetic alternating fields and high frequency fields.

Rayonex Wiki can be found at;  all the videos have English subtitles. To login to Rayonex Wiki you will need a username and password so please email  to obtain these.

5 Day Diploma Course

Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV) - Theory and Practice

Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV) - aka “Acceleration Training”- enhances the effects of exercise by increasing the efficiency of your workout. For those lacking the luxury of unlimited time to keep fit, WBV provides a convenient way of enjoying a whole-body workout in a few minutes, accelerating the health and fitness benefits at many times the rate achievable with unassisted exercise.

Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV) - Theory and Practice

How does WBV Work?

WBV uses basic science to achieve accelerated results that all can benefit from - regardless of age, health status and fitness level. Newton's Second Law of Motion states that Force = Mass x Acceleration. Traditional weight training works by increasing the Mass part of the equation; WBV achieves the same result by increasing the Acceleration - while you’re making gentle movements, or just standing, stretching or sitting. This is possible because WBV acts on both slow- and fast-twitch (white) muscle fibres at the same time - unlike traditional strength training and cardio exercises which only activate the slow-twitch (red) muscles.

WBV is used extensively in professional sports for both improved performance and faster recovery - but the recently launched FlexxiCore Challenger has made it affordable, effective and accessible for home use.

Not Just for the Lazy?

While just 3 or 4 short WBV sessions a week can significantly enhance the exercise results of any user, WBV can help attain specific goals whatever your starting level. As an example, many yoga students are still working towards a level of fitness that will allow their bodies to hold the classic asana poses with ease. By adding the occasional WBV session to their yoga practice, they can achieve a real breakthrough in muscle conditioning; accelerate the process of recovery from poor posture, shallow breathing and other habitual stresses; and improve circulation and oxygenation so that their body becomes more attuned with their yoga practice aims.

Similarly, WBV is used to great effect as an adjunct to Pilates, Tai Chi and many other health and fitness practices.

Two example comments from participants in the FlexxiCore Trials:

  1. 49-yr-old female Nutritionist:  “I have used vibration plates in the past, but FlexxiCore is really best of the bunch. It gives smooth yet really stimulating/effective vibration as well as being well built, aesthetically beautiful, lower than I have seen others and can be accessed equally and safely from all sides if one chooses to do floor exercises with it. Rollers on one side are great as I would not be able to move it around at all it being so heavy.”
  2. 77-yr-old male Kinesiologist: “It exercises every part of the body without strain on any one part; general all-round fitness. Left knee pain problem almost gone after 60 days. More flexible in my movements and more relaxed all round.

Homoeotherapy, the Healthcare Model of the Future

Health needs have changed over the past 100 years; changes in farming practices, the food chain that results, combined with industrialization have changed the landscape in which we live. The new science of epigenetics now tells us that the environment can bring about alterations to our DNA, which has adverse effects on health.  Personalized health plans will be the way of the future.

Homoeotherapy, the Healthcare Model of the Future

Homoeotherapy, a combination package, combines homeopathy, herbal medicines and nutrition as frontline treatments. Resonance therapies such as kinesiology facilitate the identification of needs at organs, tissue and cellular level, which permits the development of the personalised plan. Also incorporated are traditional meditative practices such as yoga, mindfulness and gratitude as a means of calming and stabilising the mind and body. Cognitive therapies are an essential part of the overall program.

Degradation of the planet has come from a surge in toxicity, use of food additives, chemicals, pesticides, medications, synthetic and electromagnetic pollution all result in stress, over-acidity and compromised immunity.

The New Vistas program addresses the effects of toxicity within the body and nutritional depletion that results. The program addresses cellular and mitochondrial health, pH balance, the microbiome, organ function as well as identification of emotional disharmony. Education and training programs are provided for a range CAM therapies.

Healthcare is at a crossroads. Health budgets in many countries are reaching the point where they are unable to meet the needs of community, thereby contributing to a more adversarial society. Homoeotherapy can assist with those difficulties. Greater recognition by the authorities of integrative medicine would reduce hospitalisations, reduce the cost to the taxpayer and above all, provide greater patient and client outcomes.

To learn more about this modern and innovative system of healing, please contact New Vistas Healthcare.

Raising your Vibration: 5th Dimensional Medicine

Our DNA is in the process of a huge reprogramming which has been going on since 2012. Since then, everything in your life will have changed structurally, with no exceptions . More huge changes occurred in September 2015.

Why is it Important to Upgrade?

Just as it’s important to keep up with software upgrades on your IT devices, we are all currently shifting our bodies massively as we move from the 3rd dimension ( carbon /masculine/fear) into the higher vibrations of the 5th  (crystalline / feminine / unconditional love / joy / bliss). Effectively changing a channel, we are all vibrational beings acting as receivers from our light/life source, the sun. The 5th Dimension is a frequency that we tune into, much like various Radio / TV channels.

Raising your Vibration: 5th Dimensional Medicine

Our bodies are upgrading and many organs are literally moving/changing in our bodies ie heart, liver, kidneys and nervous systems. Traditional medics are confused to say the least as nothing is as it was. The old drug/pharmaceutical palette simply doesn’t have an answer to most common complaints now.

You will notice that your preferences for food, friends and surroundings have changed. You may find yourself clearing out lofts and drawers, friends lists and homes, relationships and work. There are many ‘ascension symptoms’ or FLU ( frequency Light Upgrades) being experienced now, as we experience the upgrades.

How can we Heal and Stay Healthy?

  • By raising our personal vibrations to match the new frequencies, stepping away from the old paradigm and into the new, using natural vibrational tools like aromatherapy, crystals, sound, homeopathy, clean food and water, and essences;
  • We will need to address the foods that we ingest, and our thoughts and old patterning, get adequate sleep and rest, get into nature, make more time to meditate and drink plenty of clean water. Whatever we believe is possible IS;
  • Nature provides all the necessary tools for this amazing upgrade. Aromatherapy is the one I am focusing on here combined with the positive power of ‘love and gratitude’;

Organic aromatherapy has produced an amazing range of healing creams and candles that do just this. The Soul Harmony creams are medicine for the 5th dimension. Sarah Williams is the aromatherapist/healer/teacher who created these in 1997 and now people globally are feeling the benefit of natural healing with no negative side effects.

All you need to do is apply a little cream daily (she makes a healing cream for almost  anything), this balanced the toric field of the body, a donut-shaped electro-magnetic field which every living thing has in common. This places the body in a position to balance (homeo-stasis) enabling you to heal yourself naturally.

Further Information

Sarah is a multi-dimensional teacher and shares Raise your Vibration courses ( 6 modules) and the life changing Munay ki Rites in the South of UK. Her extensive website is full of tools and information on current changes. She is also a regular contributor to several magazines and is available for Skype/Facetime/telephone and personal healing.

Appeal to Help Nubuhle with Septic Sarcoma

We would like to draw your hearts attention to the story of young Nubuhle, a local Zululand albino girl from the rural area of Kwabonambi. Nubuhle was sent home with some over the counter pain killers by the government hospital for the advanced Septic Sarcoma on her face and head. She was told by them that there was nothing further they could do. 2 Weeks later as Nobuhle was literally starving to death, because she could not eat or sleep with the relentless pain, so her mother, Makhosi brought her in desperation to the Bobby Greenhash Foundation for treatments with cannabis oil. Although medical doctors had given her a limited prognosis the Foundation were determined to help. 

Appeal to Help Nubuhle with Septic Sarcoma

They provided topically applied cannabis oil treatment to her for approximately 5 months before realising that although Nobuhle is doing pretty well, their next dilemma was "how we gonna fix the damaged tissue". The Sarcoma had damaged the tissue and muscle in the face and Gangrene infected the wound. It seemed expensive surgery and painful skin grafts were the only options available. Here is where Earthberry clinic centre in George - SA, who use non-invasive Theragem Fusion light therapy and Rife treatments, stepped in and suggested they might be able to provide treatment and support. The Bobby Greenhash Foundation were able to fund her trip to George where the Earthberry Clinic would take over.

Nubuhle arrived at the Earthberry offices a very tired, hungry and very scared to be without her family but grateful to all the people who are willing to help her. Having seen the young girl's pain first hand Earthberry therapists thought it best to give her a full Theragem treatment immediately. Upon closer inspection of the tumour on her face they realized the tumour was full of maggots, the team were saddened and horrified as the stench was unbearable. There was also a longtime open wound on her leg which was also treated that same evening.

Much to relieve and amazement of all the maggots had dropped out of the skin the following morning! Two weeks further Nubuhle is still receiving Theragem treatments and is currently staying at a local B&B. She is miles from home with no money and all her food, toiletries and associated needs are being funded by the Earthberry team. Nubuhle's life is already challenged by the fact she is an albino, this gruesome sarcoma adding isolation and traumatic events on a daily basis.
We at Medica Health recognise the significance of the role that Earthberry Clinic are taking here. The need to help this young girl is overwhelming and the team are doing all they can to ease her suffering. Nubuhle arrived in George with almost no clothes, no toiletries and no hope and we'd like to help them by raising funds to fund this young girl's stay and treatment with Earthberry. Our target is to cover the full costs of what is needed in these coming two months, and it will be oh so welcomed!

The Earthberry team shared this "Bless her. She asked me if I was going to take away this thing on her face and my response was I am really going to try ..... her little face lit up and she could not thank me enough."
One look at the pictures and the changes that were made possible by the use of noninvasive treatments and the ongoing efforts to make this girls live become bearable!

Please help us the gather the funds necessary for the treatments, the food and stay at the B&B to make this girls live a better one, to give her that chance!

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction and Piriformis Syndrome - The Complete Guide For Physical Therapists

by Paula Clayton.

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2016. Paperback. £15.90 / $25.38. ISBN: 978 1 905367 64 1.


Applications for soft tissue therapy have increased significantly over the last decade. Perhaps the greatest area of growth has been around sports and caring for athletes. Multiple soft tissue, manipulative, and needling techniques have become mainstream tools in the therapist “tool box”, whether aiding in athlete recovery, performance enhancement, or injury prevention.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction and Piriformis Syndrome - The Complete Guide For Physical Therapists

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction and Piriformis Syndrome looks at dysfunction and injury, assessment, current understanding from the literature, and evidence-based treatment options at a therapist’s disposal. This book offers the ‘how’ but more importantly the ‘why’, as to the map of approach one can take: if you cannot answer the WHY when beginning treatment, you shouldn’t really attempt anything until you have an answer.

About the Author

Clayton brings her years of expertise to this fully illustrated color guide, showing step-by-step how to correct dysfunction using a wide range of modalities. With an MSc in physiotherapy and an MSc in sports injury management, Clayton writes regular articles for trade magazines and speaks at a number of conferences. She has been delivering soft tissue therapy master-classes to therapy teams within UK national governing bodies of sport, Premiership and Championship football as well as to qualified soft tissue therapists and busy physiotherapy practices.

The Truth About Cancer: What you need to know about Cancer’s History, Treatment & Prevention

by Ty Bollinger. Published by Hay House Inc. 2016. £14.99 - Paperback. $14.87 - Hardback. ISBN-10: 1401952232.

One out of three women alive today, and one out of two men, will face a cancer diagnosis, according to the World Health Organization. Ty Bollinger takes this personally: in the course of a decade, he says, “I lost my entire family to cancer. I don’t believe I had to lose them.” 

he Truth About Cancer: What you need to know about Cancer’s History, Treatment & Prevention

The Truth about Cancer has been written for one simple reason: to share the knowledge we need to protect ourselves, treat ourselves, and in some cases save our lives or the lives of those we love.

Bollinger, whose October 2015 documentary miniseries The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest has received over 5 million views to date, explains that there are many methods we can access to treat and prevent cancer - we just don’t know about them. The book delves into the history of medicine - all the way back to Hippocrates’s credo of “do no harm” - as well as up-to-the-minute research that proves the efficacy of dozens of advanced cancer treatments being used around the globe. Bollinger arms readers with essential, sometimes startling information about:

  • The history and politics of cancer;
  • The takeover of medical education by special interests and for-profit agendas;
  • How some life-saving treatments have been kept from the public - and why;
  • Treatment options that go well beyond chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

“To us this is not a business, it’s a mission,” he explains. “We’re on a mission to save the world.

About the Author

Ty Bollinger is a happily married husband and father, health freedom advocate, cancer researcher, documentary film producer, radio show host, and author. After losing several family members to cancer, he refused to accept the notion that chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery were the most effective treatments available for cancer patients. He began a quest to learn all he possibly could about alternative cancer treatments and the medical industry. What he uncovered was shocking. There is ample evidence to support the allegation that the “war on cancer” is largely a fraud and that multinational pharmaceutical companies are “running the show.”

Ty has now made it his life mission to share the most remarkable discovery he made on his quest: the vast majority of all diseases, including cancer, can be easily prevented and even cured without drugs or surgery.

    Breastfeeding a Human Right

    Breastfeeding is a human rights issue for babies and mothers and should be protected and promoted for the benefit of both, a group of United Nations experts say in a statement recently made public. They believe action should be taken to stop misleading, aggressive and inappropriate marketing of breast milk substitutes in a multi-billion dollar global industry. These marketing practices often negatively affect the choices women make on how to feed their infants in the best way possible and can impede both babies and mothers from enjoying the many health benefits of breastfeeding.

Not all cancers, sadly, but 13 out of the 26 assessed including breast, colon, liver, kidney, oesophagus and stomach.
