Marital Abuse

I saw a married couple a few days back. They were seeking alternatives for the husband's diabetes despite taking medicines.

What whas significant about this case, was that after I have finished with the husband and he was doing some acupuncture treatments, I began asking the wife questions, due to the fact that on SCIO, it seems like she has or had depression.

She started opening up and told me that the husband was abusing him physically and emotionally. She hasn't told it to anyone for fear of her family breaking apart. So she kept quiet about it. She confessed that this was the first time she said anything about it.

case in point, that people seem to be more open towards strangers, knowing that whatever is saod or discussed, it won't leak out to the family or friends. As what Armstrong-Coster wrote in her book Living and Dying with Cancer. I just hope everything will be fine for her

Laser Chelation

There have been several clinics now offering chelation using a He-Ne laser. I have my doubts about the efficacy, since I haven't seen any REAL papers on how it affects the human body. What I do know about lasers is more on research of laser acupuncture. It contends that the laser increases ATP in cells as well as the Ca+ ion pump.

Giving up the fight

Yesterday, I was giving some treatments to a patient of mine with Non-Hodgkin's. She has been a patient of mine for close to 2 years now. She was a good patient, she followed all the instructions to the letter.

"Was," because for the past few months, she started straying and eating all the foods that a cancer survivor should not eat. Her lymph nodes have swelled to astronomical proportions on different parts of her body. God only knows how much lymph nodes are now affected.

When she was asked, if she wanted to go to the hospital, her reply was "NO, just let me be, I'm tired."

So I had talked to her daughter that she needs to talk with her siblings on what is the next appropriate action.

I told her, that I don't like the idea of treating patients who doesn't want to be treated anymore. I would rather the patient spend their time on what they want to do rather than feeling imprisoned with the treatments that they feel will not make any difference.

The Power of Belief

What if tomorrow's biology is based not on the Newtonian physics but rather on Quantum physics? Will there be a cure for all he known scourge of man?

If you read on Bruce Lipton's website, you'll be surprised that our cells are interacting with our environments, our thoughts and emotions shape our cells to do what is necessary for its survival.

The concept of Bruce Lipton, fits exactly to what the SCIO, a quantum diagnostic device does. It detects and corrects anomalies in the bio-electric field. I hope people will start to realize the importance of thoughts and their subsequent actions to their health.

Filipinos in Crisis

The newspapers here are now quite busy doing stories on the state of our medical system. Doctors have been leaving the country to be as nurses, literally greener pastures.
Estimates are blurry as to how many doctors will be left from this brain drain but the big fact that remains, is that the ordinary Filipino is suffering from lack of doctors and nurses especially in the provinces.
Private and public hospitals are closing down or downscaling from lack of medical personnel. So who is to blame, government blames the doctors and doctors blames the politicians running the government. But up til now, no concrete steps have been made to slow down this trend. Only grandstanding.
I wonder if there will be enough people left after they have finished their grandstanding dramas. Poor little Juan De la Cruz, no food, no job and now... no right to be sick.

Cancer Stem Cells

There has been a lot of journal articles now that have mentioned the role of cancer stem cells in the recurrence and sometimes resistance of cancer cells to chemotherapy. Simply put, even if all the cancer cells are killed by chemo or radiotherapy, the cancer stem cells may still be intact and can cause recurrence of the cancer.
So in my humble opinion, I think that more research be done on these stem cells if in fact we want to get rid of this disease that will become the number 1 cause of mortality world-wide in the next few years

Back to Work

After consulting with a counsellor, I have now realized that what I am doing is not to save but to act as a conduit to help others help themselves.

And so I'm now a bit up and about, doing what I know and feel that is my calling

I feel like I'm losing patients more than I am helping them. Its like atug of war but for every inch I pull in, I give up 3 inches afterwards.

I dont know about the real score in the alternative clinics that are out there claiming to have a very good success rate. But the reality is is that success based on their stay at the clinic or at the cause of death of the patients.

There are times I feel like there is not much I can do but to make them feel comfortable and a good quality of life. If I am able to cause the cancer to be stable or regress then thats a big bonus to me and to the patients and family.

I still haven't given up yet, I know I will be able to help more than I will lose them
