Live to Eat or Eat to Live?

I am a bit exasperated with one of my patient who is more wanting to eat rather than to live. He has by the way, Lymphoma and all the work and improvement we had, all went up in smoke because he ate 4 pieces of pandesal.

Stem cells and Vitamin C

Researchers in Guangzhou China have found that vitamin C induces somatic cells or mature cells that are present in all our organs, to become pluripotent stem cells.

Moreover, vitamin C seems to unblock a cell's programming for senescence (or aging) to become a pleuripotent stem cell.

Hmmmm more reason to take those Vitamin c. So now, we can call vitamin C an anti-aging vitamin.

Naltrexone and Alpha Lipoic acid for Pancreatic Cancer

In the latest issue of Integrative Cancer Therapies, a case of 3 patients with pancreatic cancer were treated with intravenous alpha lipoic acid and low dose naltrexone. What's astonishing is that the patients are still alive, 2 of which were already cancer free based on their PET scan.

This is an ongoing trial in a New Mexico Integrative Center.

I hope this study will be more available to all pancreatic cancer patients.

A wonderful surprise!!!

Yesterday, as I was about to teach a group of MDs, and non-MDs about quantum medicine and healing, I was surprised and honored that one of my professors in my Med school was one of them. Was I intimidated? hmmm at the beginning maybe, but when they were doing the healing stuff, he was just one of them.. dumbstruck at what he was experiencing.

Question is, will this new found experience lead him further to study the Eastern medical philosophy or will it make him stand back and question himself about its validity.

Only time will tell...


Sometimes we feel that we need to hold on eventhough we know that our holding on to a certain person or thing is actually making our lives a little less joyful.

I feel sad that we are about to lose one of the bravest person I have ever met. Even at her death bed, she calmly told us to just give her the morphine and let her sleep, sans the drama. But how can we do that?
