Common Mouthwash Products Boost Risk of Oral Cancer by 900 Percent
by David Gutierrer
The use of mouthwashes that contain alcohol as an ingredient can drastically increase a person’s risk of cancers of the mouth, head and neck, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Australia’s University of Melbourne and University of Queensland School of Dentistry.
Researchers studied use of mouthwash among 3,210 people and compared it with rates of mouth, head and neck cancers.
“We see people with oral cancer who have no other risk factors than the use of [mouthwash containing alcohol], so what we’ve done is review all the evidence,” said lead researcher Michael McCullough, chair of the Australian Dental Association’s therapeutics committee,
Hormone Replacement Therapy is near to my heart because the doctors pretty much made me take it before they would let me out of the hospital. I was 36 years old. Cancer Survivor speaker Sheila Ulrich, told them a day would come when HRT was found to be harmful. Are we at that day?
I didn’t know anything about HRT at the time, but something was nagging deep within to be cautious………………………………..
Now here we are in 2009…………….and what are we suspecting about HRT??? It is quite a controversy.
Tell me what you think.
Hormone Replacement Therapy Doubles Risk of Breast Cancer, Women Warne to Stop HRT Drugs
by Mike Adams Natural News Editor
Drug companies can no longer deny the science: Breast cancer risk is doubled for women who take conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) drugs.
So many of us carry our hurts and sadness from the past to this very moment. Then in this very moment we react in anger from something in the past. It is really not the moment, or what is said or done in the moment, that we are angry about. It is usually something that triggered a past memory, which we became angry about back then, and we are still carrying around with us.
What past memories are you carrying around with you? What are you still angry about? Who are you still angry at?
Make the list……………………
You cannot heal until you let the anger go……………………
To heal from cancer or any illness I believe with all my heart, we have to use a “whole” approach.
No one system, tool, product or treatment can do it all. We have to heal all aspects of our being. Not just this crazy physical body that we think is all of us. We have an emotional body that plays a major role in who we are and also in our overall health. We cannot be carrying around a heavy load of emotional baggage and be well physically. We have a mental part of our being that we get lost in too. Read more here on Love Your Mind too.
Then we have our spiritual being that most of us have lost along the way. We forget who we really are.
Now we have our body, mind, emotions and spirit, and to be well and whole we must address all of these.
Detoxification is part of eliminating the millions of toxins that are within our bodies and environment. It is critical in our healing. As part of your cancer support, evaluate the opportunity of detoxification. We have to clean out before we can put good things in. There are many products and supplements you can use to help detoxify. Also I talked about natural household and personal products you can use to help. Below is another method of detoxifying. Check it out.
Dry Skin Brushing: A Natural Way to Detox
Natural is a word that is thrown around and is suppose to be good for us. I do believe our bodies are saturated with chemicals and toxins in our food, our products, homes, environement, etc. I do believe this is one of the reasons our bodies are breaking down. Then we label the “breakdown” as a disease of some kind.
As your cancer survivor speaker today I am sharing an article that you should remember when purchasing your next lotion, deoderant, shampoo, et…
What is Truly Natural?
by Michael Lee
“Natural” is an abused word in the marketplace today. A stunning number of products claiming to be “natural” are not. Find out what you should look for when purchasing natural skin care products.
In a society where the word ‘natural’ sells, you have no doubt seen store shelves lined with so-called natural products. Shampoos, lotions, and other topical crèmes are being marketed as natural. But how do you know if the product you are using truly is pure and natural?
Cancer support is critical as you begin a treatment plan you choose. And if your doctors don’t know how to help you support your body and heal, like my doctors didn’t, find someone you trust. It could be a friend or a natural doctor or chiropractor someone who can offer cancer support. Someone who can help you build your body to be strong and healthy.

I had surgery to remove an orange size melanoma tumor from my ovary and at the time they thought it had spread to all my organs. During one conversation with my oncologist we were discussing the size and mitotic rate of my cancer. They estimated 60 million melanoma cells and a very high rate of growth.
As your cancer survivor speaker, I am compelled this morning to speak louder!
After speaking with several people the last few days about cancer, one thing kept ringing in my ears louder and louder! And the doctors are still not telling the millions of people with cancer!!
We trust our doctors and listen to them and believe they are doing everything they can to help save our lives. This is true in most cases. But my experience tells me they don’t have all the tools. And if you don’t have the tools, you can’t use the tools, and if you don’t have the tools, you can’t share the tools.
Speaking from personal experience only, I know when I asked the most obvious question to my team of doctors, their faces dropped and they said, I don’t know how!!
Cancer Spreads Through Body Long Before Tumor Develops
by David Gutierrez, staff writer
Seemingly healthy cells may spread to distant parts of the body long before any cancerous tumors are visible, researchers have discovered. This suggests that the virulence of a specific case of cancer might actually be determined early in the disease, perhaps even before diagnosis.
At issue is a phenomenon called metastasis, by which cancer cells spread from one organ to a non-adjacent organ. Cancers that have metastasized are particularly lethal and hard to treat; the majority of lethal breast cancers, for example, are metastatic.
“These findings indicate that properties inherent in normal cells are sufficient for negotiating a significant portion of the metastatic cascade,” lead researcher Dr Katrina Podsypanina said. “Our data seems to point toward the inherent decision that is made when the tumor is formed whether it is highly malignant or not.”
